          Theatre Of Note Presents MARIAN, OR THE TRUE TALE OF ROBIN HOOD      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Theatre of NOTE continues its 2018 season with the West Coast premiere of MARIAN, OR THE TRUE TALE OF ROBIN HOOD, written by Adam Szymkowicz and directed by Christopher Johnson.

MARIAN, OR THE TRUE TALE OF ROBIN HOODis a gender-bending, patriarchy-smashing, hilarious new take on the classic Robin Hood myth. In Szymkowicz's retelling of the tale, Robin Hood is (and has always been) Maid Marian in disguise, and leads a motley group of Merry Men (a few of whom are actually men) against the greedy Prince John. As the poor get poorer and the rich get richer, who will stand for the vulnerable if not Robin? What is the cost of revealing your true self in a time of trouble? Modern concerns and romantic entanglements clash on the battlefield and on the ramparts of Nottingham Castle. A play about selfishness and selflessness and love deferred and the fight. Always the fight. The fight must go on.

MARIAN, OR THE TRUE TALE OF ROBIN HOOD will preview Friday and Saturday, August 17 and 18 at 8pm, and will open on Thursday, August 23 at 8pm and run through Saturday, September 22 at Theatre of NOTE, 1517 N Cahuenga Blvd (just north of Sunset) in Hollywood.

          An unintended consequence of Trump's trade war is coming for one of the industries that will be hit hardest, and it could give him a big win      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

soybean farmer

  • US soybean farmers are expected to be a major loser in President Donald Trump's trade war with China.
  • US soybean exports surged over the past two months because of distortions from Trump's trade battles with China.
  • This is likely to boost US second-quarter gross domestic product, helping to give Trump a big public-relations win on the economy. 

US soybean farmers are expected to get whacked by President Donald Trump's trade war with China, but not before helping hand the president a potentially significant economic victory.

While many farmers and experts expect the industry to take a significant hit because of the trade war, dramatic changes in soybean shipments ahead of the tariffs could help lift upcoming US gross-domestic-product numbers, giving Trump a big economic talking point.

Soybeans were hit with a new tariff by the Chinese government last week as part of the retaliation for Trump's tariffs on $34 billion worth of Chinese goods. The decision to apply duties to soybeans was a big one — the crop is the largest US agricultural export, and China was the destination for $14.2 billion worth of US soybeans in 2016.

But the move was a long time coming. China threatened to impose restrictions on soybeans as far back as March. This gave US soybean farmers an opportunity to rush the product out of the country before the trade war kicked off in earnest, but it also seriously shifted trade patterns for the crop.

According to The Wall Street Journal, China began to shift its purchases away from US farmers and toward Brazilian soybeans in the spring. With China soaking up much of the Brazilian supply, other countries like Egypt, Thailand, and the Netherlands increased their purchases of US soybeans. This led to a surge in US exports, but also a steep drop in shipments to China that increased longer-term concerns.

But for 2018's second quarter, the outlook for soybean farmers is solid. Based on data from Ian Shepherdson, the chief economist at Pantheon Macroeconomics, soybean exports will clock their two best months since mid-2016 in May and June.

In turn, the soybean mad dash is likely to provide a huge boost to second-quarter US GDP, Shepherdson said.

"Weekly data show that soybean exports rose again in June, but we're then expecting to see a steep fall in July," Shepherdson wrote in a note to clients. "In the second quarter, though, we estimate that soybean exports will contribute some 0.6 percentage points to GDP growth, at an annualized rate."

The Atlanta Federal Reserve Bank's GDP Now, a tracker used to predict quarterly GDP, predicts second-quarter GDP will hit 3.8% annualized growth.

Screen Shot 2018 07 09 at 5.22.33 PM

The sudden uptick in soybean exports mirrors the surge during the summer of 2016, when crop yields from South America — the typical soybean suppliers over those months — fell well short of expectations and allowed US farmers to step in. That quarter, the boosted trade component, mostly due to the soybean surge, added 0.83 percentage points to GDP.

Trump has long set a target of 3% to 4% annual GDP growth for his administration. The soybean exports should provide a boost for one quarter, but the Trump administration hasn't been shy about pointing to single-quarter data to show that the country is meeting Trump's goals.

A boost would come amid significant price pressure for soybean farmers. Soybean futures contracts have fallen to their lowest level since 2009, leaving many farmers scrambling.

And the soybean support in second-quarter GDP data may not last long, according to Shepherdson, who said the economic boost from soybean exports "probably will reverse in full in the third quarter."

The first estimate for third-quarter GDP is scheduled for release on October 26, 11 days before the 2018 midterm elections.

          World Cup preview: Croatia vs. England semifinal      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

A capsule look at Wednesday's World Cup semifinal match between Croatia and England in Moscow (2 p.m. EDT, 9 p.m. local):

WHY CROATIA WILL WIN

A generation of players in their primes, or just past their primes, led by a strong midfield with Ivan Pericic (29), Ivan Rakatic (30) and Luka Modric (32), with Mario Mandzukic (32) heading the attack.

WHY ENGLAND WILL WIN

After falling short for generations, coach Gareth Southgate has put together a team that is playing like a team. Striker Harry Kane was the only standout heading into the tournament. Plus the Croats are coming off consecutive penalty-kick wins and figure to have to more tired legs.

PROJECTED LINEUPS

Croatia: 4-2-3-1 — Subasic; Vrsaljko, Lovren, Vida, Strinic; Rakitic, Modric; Rebic, Kamaric, Perisic; Mandzukic

England: 3-5-2 — Pickford; Walker, Stones, Maguire; Henderson, Trippier, Alli, Lingard, Young; Sterling, Kane

MAN IN THE MIDDLE

Cuneyt Cakir of Turkey will referee his second straight World Cup semifinal match, after Argentina's penalty-kick win over the Netherlands four years ago. Cakir worked Iran's 1-0 win over Morocco and Argentina's 2-1 victory over Nigeria in the group stage this year, and he refereed Barcelona's 3-1 victory over Juventus in the 2015 Champions League final.

WORLD CUP HISTORY

In England's last semifinal match, Andreas Brehme's 60th-minute shot deflected off an onrushing Paul Parker at the penalty arc and looped over goalkeeper Peter Shilton to put West Germany ahead. England tied the score when Parker's cross bounced off Juergen Kohler and fell to Gary Lineker, who beat goalkeeper Bodo Illgner to the far post in the 80th minute. In the shootout, Stuart Pearce was stopped by Illgner on England's fourth attempt, Olaf Thon converted for a 4-3 lead and Chris Waddle shot over the crossbar.

Croatia went ahead in the 1998 semifinals only 26 seconds into the second half when Aljosa Asanovic split the defense with a pass, and Davor Suker scored his fifth goal of the tournament. Lilian Thuram tied the score a minute later after stealing the ball from Zvonimir Boban near the Croat penalty area and exchanging passes with Youri Djorkaeff. Thuram scored the go-ahead goal with a curling shot in the 70th minute, and France won 2-1.

CROATIA GOALS

vs. Nigeria (2-0): own-goal (32), Modric (71-penalty)

vs. Argentina (3-0): Rebic (53), Modric (80), Rakatic (90+1)

vs. Iceland (2-1): Badelj (53), Perisic (90)

vs. Denmark (1-1, 3-2 penalty kicks): Mandzukic (4)

vs. Russia (2-2, 4-3 penalty kicks): Kramaric (39), Vida (101)

ENGLAND GOALS

vs. Tunisia (2-1): Kane (11, 90+1)

vs. Panama (6-1): Stones (8, 40), Kane (22, 45+1-penalty, 62), Lingard (36)

vs. Belgium (0-1)

vs. Colombia (1-1, 4-3 penalty kicks): Kane (57-penalty)

vs. Sweden (2-0): Maguire (30), Alli (59)

HEAD TO HEAD

Croatians played for Yugoslavia before splitting off in 1990. England has four wins, two losses and one draw in the matchup, including a 4-2 victory in the group stage of the 2004 European Championship. The teams have not met since qualifying for the 2010 World Cup, when England won 4-1 in Zagreb and 5-1 at Wembley Stadium. England goalkeeper Paul Robinson kicked at and missed a backpass from Gary Neville, allowing an own-goal in a 2-0 loss in a European qualifier in 2006. Goalkeeper Scott Carson fumbled Niki Kranjcar's shot into the net for the opening goal as Croatia won 3-2 at Wembley the following year, causing England to miss Euro 2008. England coach Steve McClaren held a large red-and-blue umbrella on the sidelines and was mocked as the "Wally with the brolly," and he was fired the next day. They are drawn into the same group of the initial Nations League, a new competition kicking off this autumn.

SUSPENSIONS

None

INJURY CONCERNS

Croatia right back Sime Vrsaljko walked slowly off the field with an apparent leg injury when he was replaced in extra time of the quarterfinals.

England midfielder Dele Alli has not played a full match since injuring a thigh against Tunisia.

JUST SAYING

Croatia: "It won't be easy for us. We will focus in the next few days to recover as much as possible. We will look for the best solutions ahead the match, considering we have a few players with minor issues after the match against Russia. It won't be easy, but to get into the semifinals it's a new motive for us." — Croatia coach Zlatko Dalic, through a translator

England: "Probably 18 months ago I talked to them about if you have success with England, it will be so much bigger than anything you can imagine, and I think that is probably starting to register with them now." — England coach Gareth Southgate

Don't give up on hope. 


A daily column on what the ALP have as a policy, supported by a local member, and how it has 'helped' the local community. I'll stop if I cannot identify a policy. Feel free to make suggestions. Contact me on FB, not twitter. I have twitter, but never look at it. 

Gabrielle Williams was appointed Parliamentary Secretary for Carers and Volunteers, working with the Minister for Housing, Disability and Ageing and the Minister for Families and Children. 


As part of the November 24th Vic election campaign I have a petition I want to bring before the Opposition Leader Matthew Guy. I believe Matthew will be the next premier of Victoria and so I am petitioning him as I raise the issues of Employment, Crime and Education in Dandenong. I am also seeking money for my campaign. I don't have party resources, and so my campaign is on foot, and on the internet. Any money I receive that is not spent on the campaign will go to Grow 4 Life. I am asking questions like "What do you love about Dandenong?" and "If you could change something in Dandenong to make it better, what would it be?" I'm not limiting the questions to state issues. I'm happy to discuss anything, and get things done.

I am a decent man and don't care for the abuse given me. I created a video raising awareness of anti police feeling among western communities. I chose the senseless killing of Nicola Cotton, a Louisiana policewoman who joined post Katrina, to highlight the issue. I did this in order to get an income after having been illegally blacklisted from work in NSW for being a whistleblower. I have not done anything wrong. Local council appointees refused to endorse my work, so I did it for free. Youtube's Adsence refused to allow me to profit from their marketing it. Meanwhile, I am hostage to abysmal political leadership and hopeless journalists. My shopfront has opened on Facebook.

Here is a video I made Mystery of Webster's Curse

The complete HD video comprising all four parts.

An Agence France Press release has it that President Obama's policies in Iraq have born fruit. As a service to my readers, I'll include pictures of Obama's success. AFP hopes similar success can be achieved in Syria. It probably can.



Some things should not happen, but they do. Kevin Rudd as PM was highly lauded for apologising to Australian Aborigines. It was an empty gesture, but an attempted travesty as he moved to end the intervention in the North of Australia saving lives of Aboriginal peoples. Aboriginal people are suffering from left wing compassion which seems to promote criminal and decadent behaviour. So that Aboriginal children have got high levels of sexually transmitted diseases. Drunken behaviour and dysfunctional families characterise what has become a cargo culture. Rudd effectively apologised for early welfare groups that tried to help foundlings and the dispossessed. Rudd referred to a myth of a stolen generation in which very few have been identified who were stolen from their parents to be raised by the state. It was an empty gesture of Rudd, but he is still highly lauded for it. 

It is apparent that Turnbull can not achieve anything worthwhile as PM, except further humiliation. So he must be looking for a note on which to finish so as to define his term. Turnbull is looking for a Rudd like empty gesture. Same sex marriage could be that. A plebiscite is the policy which the Liberals took to the last election, with no back up plan, and the senate won't allow it because many independents, and the ALP and Greens, feel discussion for such a plebiscite might mean that the plebiscite fails. Pesky democracy. So now a Lib backbencher, possibly with Turnbull's encouragement, is threatening to cross the party floor and move for a parliamentary vote without a plebiscite or discussion. Personally, I don't feel government should be involved with people's sex lives where consent is achieved, but I also want protection for churches which act on conscience, something a members bill might not do. There are lots of legal things I would never do. An empty gesture like Rudd's for which Turnbull can point as a crowning achievement. It is probably too late for Turnbull to bear a child while in office.

My books "History in a Year by the Conservative Voice" are available, recommended for those age ten and up. They have an essay or two on current affairs for each day of each month. They also list events, births, deaths and holidays and observances for each day around the world. But unless you ask a Library to stock it for you, they will not do so. One public Library feels they are too specialised. 

No news yet as to wether the fierce battle of half wits will decide who will be the next ALP leader between Shorten, Albanese, Plibersek or Clare. Clare looks better in a suit. Nobody is challenging random phrase generator Turnbull, yet, either. Turnbull has declared “We have resolved this election! Ringing stuff. Hopefully Scott Morrison will move soon before Turnbull melts completely. Compulsory voting has not prevented the lowest turnout for the major parties in Liberal Party history. ALP recording their second worst result since last time. Liberals going backwards while their coalition colleagues, Nationals, still progressed. Turnbull deposed Mr Abbott under the false pretence of explaining policy better and being better at elections. Now the vote is over, Turnbull can resign. Or face further humiliation. 

For some, at the moment, the Sex Party has more credibility.  
=== from 2015 ===
Democrat hatred for the United States cultural assets is longstanding. In South Carolina, in 1962, a Democrat Governor put up the confederate flag on their capitol building while taking credit for improving educational standards while opposing integration. The flag is coming down now, a symbol exploited by bigots and haters. It is difficult to know when it was anything else. The current governor is Nikki Haley. She is GOP. 

ALP leader Bill Shorten is the bastard boss portrayed in union attack adverts on Work Choices. He failed to adequately explain his union leader decisions from back in the day. Shorten smeared the High Court Judge instead, claiming Dyson Heydon is Mr Abbott's pawn. Shorten's leadership is exposed and so the eye of voters wanders to look at others. And the alternatives are showing voters what they have got. Tanya Plibersek, ALP Deputy leader, complains she is losing the ability to feed herself. The compelling vision is clearly calculated to inspire sympathy from ALP supporters at the grass roots. They will be needed to change the leadership. Jason Clare says he doesn't know why the government is turning back boats because the policy won't work. In fantasy terms, Clare is a compelling candidate because he has never been leader before and therefore all his mistakes have been someone else's fault. Something ALP members find appealing. But it isn't only ALP members campaigning for Shorten's position. Sarah Hanson-Young is going on sea patrol. She is going to the Mediterranean seas to find lost migrants. It is much nicer there in Summer than Australia in Winter. ALP should be happy with her embarrassment of leadership choices. 
From 2014
Hundreds of millions of tweets over just one soccer match. But it was an unusual match. By way of contrast, Netherlands vs Argentina did not get the same coverage as Germany vs Brazil. But then Germany spanked Brazil 7-1 in front of a home crowd for Brazil. It doesn't get more upsetting in world sport .. anywhere. The result is career changing for all involved. Netherlands beat Spain 5-1 earlier in the tournament, but did not carry on with that form. Germany have done well, but need to maintain it to win the tournament. That is their goal. 

Today is the anniversary of an equivalent match as Argentina vs Netherlands has been, 48 BC had Julius Ceaser pitted against Pompey at Battle of Dyrrhachium. It was precipitous, and Ceaser risked all by accident, but nothing happened as two heavyweights faced off. Technically, Pompey won and so he went to face Ceaser again at Pharsalos with all the advantages .. yet lost everything. What had happened was Ceaser had sailed to Dyrrhachium through an enemy force in winter .. and got trapped with a much smaller force that could not resupply. Mark Antony marched to his aid, and Pompey moved to prevent the reuniting. The upshot was that Pompey had a force behind fortifications and Ceaser chose to starve him out by building more fortifications. Pompey had sea access to supplies, but could not feed his livestock. Ceaser's men were hungry, but when spring came, Ceaser would hold all the advantages. Pompey broke out of his enclosure and marched to Pharsalos. How will Argentina fare against Germany? How will Brazil against Netherlands? So much has happened, but the future is uncertain, and anything might prove all the difference.

Also on this day, but in the year 645, was the Isshi incident in Japan which transformed Japan and involved their honour system in a way that seems incomprehensible if one is not Japanese. 
Two princes, Nakatomi no KamatariPrince Naka no Ōe, conspired to kill a third, Soga no Iruka. The attack took place in front of Empress Kōgyoku during a court ceremony. Iruka was not killed during the first attack, but pleaded his case to the Empress, who retired to consider it. A second attack in front of the Empress finished Iruka and put the Empress in a difficult position, she was unclean because of the murder in her presence. So she stepped aside, but not for the killer, but his older brother. The killer became a monk.  And after a few reigns, Emperor. It was a family affair. Much like that big family of soccer fans watching the events unfold in the world cup. 

Also on this day, Lady Jane Grey took the throne of England in 1553. It was not a blessing for her. Neither was it a blessing when Richard Neville defeated Lancastrian forces of Henry VI in 1460. The Vellore mutiny against the British East India company happened on this day in 1806, but the Sepoys had to wait another hundred and forty two years to see independence for India. US Democrat President Andrew Jackson moved to kill the second US bank in 1832, setting in train a position of inept fiscal rectitude all Democrat Presidents have followed. Death Valley recorded a temperature of 57 degrees centigrade in 1913. It has been cooler ever since. In 1997, scientists reported DNA analysis of a Neanderthal that favoured the 'out of Africa' theory for human development, with an 'Eve' existing 100k to 200k years ago (She was a good woman who liked kids). Born on this day was John Calvin in 1509, Nikola Tesla in 1856, Marcel Proust in 1871, Harvey Ball 1921, Jake LaMotta 1921, Arlo Guthrie 1941 and Sunil Gavaskar in 1949.

          The Tulip Series      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Dutch Tulip Farmers grow around two billion tulips every year. The Flowers come into full bloom for three to four weeks a year, between April and May. Once the tulips are in full bloom, the farmers run cutting machines through their fields, lopping off the colourful flower heads. This is done so that the remaining energy of the flower gets directed back to the bulb so that it will bloom better and stronger. Mainly the tulip bulbs are sold, rather than the blooming flower head itself. In 2015 a total of 926 different tulip cultivars were bred. The Dutch horticulture sector is the world market leader in flowers, plants and bulbs. Some 77% of all flower bulbs traded worldwide come from the Netherlands.

THIS SIDE OR THE OTHER

Black Hen Music, Release Date: August 24, 2018



David Olney’s New Album Examines The Shadowy Situations Up And Around Walls, Over Borders and Asks For Open Hearts

Nashville, TN – One listen to the brand-new album, “This Side or The Other,” and you’ll know David Olney is a man familiar with the wandering life and yearning heart of a poet. After more than 30 years in music, he’s had as many incarnations as you can imagine. His resume has expanded to include acting, poetry and a popular weekly stream cast. All of this adds to Olney’s strength as a songwriter’s songwriter, and one of Nashville’s founding fathers of Americana music.  

While “This Side or The Other” is not a concept album, there are some recurring themes. The frequent reference to walls in these songs – walls being built and tumbling down – will suggest that while Olney has encountered more than his own share of walls, he is still trying his best to understand them.  

“I wanted to explore the idea of walls,” says Olney, “What does a wall mean? What does it mean to be an immigrant who comes upon that wall as a wanderer, someone lost and alone?” 

A wall in a song can be the symbolic blockage from one place to another or the flat finality of something coming to an end. In life as in art, Olney has scaled walls and torn them down. Yet, it’s not his own path he is particularly interested in exploring. David Olney has always been an observer, a student, and writer of life for as long as he could hold a pen.  

“I’m not comfortable writing about my own dirty laundry,” says Olney, “It’s better for me to look at characters and what they might be going through. When I write about the heavy stuff of life, it’s usually while I’m in someone else’s shoes.”  

“This Side or The Other” contains solid musicianship as good as anything Nashville has to offer, and a stark, moody production by Juno Award-winning producer Steve Dawson.  

“I look for a producer I can be relaxed around," Olney says, “And I really wanted to work with Steve on this record. And while I knew he was a good producer, I had no idea what a terrific musician he was until I had him play guitar on ‘Death Will Not Divide Us.’ He did a beautiful job.” 

The other musicians on “This Side or The Other” are Country Music Hall of Fame inductee Charlie McCoy, The McCrary Sisters, Fats Kaplin, Anne McCue and Olney’s regular band: Daniel Seymour on bass, Ward Stout on fiddle and Justin Amaral on drums.  

The ten songs on “This Side or The Other” have been compiled from new and old writings, as well as a few collaborations with friends. Olney says he enjoys collaborating. “Annie McCue and John Hadley cowrote the title song, ‘This Side or The Other’ with me. It’s currently my favorite song.” 

In “Stand Tall,” a song Olney’s been writing on-and-off for 25 years, he admits “I’m never going to change the way I am” – a sentiment that will gratify his longtime fans from all over the world, who like him just the way he is and only want more of the same.  

“Breaking out of your comfort zone,” admits Olney, “can lead to certain encounters with banana peels, but that’s the chance you have to take to get songs and performances with a certain edge. I tend to stay on the margin of the page. I’m always looking for that ‘otherness,’ staying a bit off center.” 

The sweetest song on the album, a plaintive love song called “Open Your Heart (And Let Me In),” is one-part plea and one part indictment of a would-be lover who’s missing the chance for real love.  

Olney’s last track is a rootsy cover of The Zombies’ 1965 hit, “She’s Not There.” It’s a delicious reminder that everything David Olney touches gets infused with a rare blend of dark chocolate. Despite it being the cover of a popular song, we hear words we’ve never heard in the same way before.  

But David Olney knows words. He knows what they can do, and when paired with a bitter/sweet melody, they can take on a life of their own.  

And maybe they can even tear down walls.

Nickelodeon International and African Wildlife Foundation Premiere Wildlife Special to Inspire Kids to Help Endangered Animals


Tanzania Environment Added to Nickelodeon’s Hit Geography App “Dora’s Worldwide Adventure”


Social tag: #AWFRoarChallenge


Click here for pictures from episode 1.


July 10, 2018 09:00 AM Eastern Daylight Time


NEW YORK & KAMPALA, Uganda--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nickelodeon International’s Together For Good and African Wildlife Foundation (AWF) today launched their first collaboration: the Together for Good Wildlife Special, an educational mini-series created to inspire kids to raise awareness about endangered wildlife and empower them to become change-makers. In commemoration, Nickelodeon today also launched a Tanzania environment within its hit educational geography app, Dora’s Worldwide Adventure.

“Our research shows that 73 percent of kids aged 6-11 think their age group has the potential to change the world for the better,1 and we want to give them the tools to do just that,” said Bradley Archer-Haynes, Vice President, Corporate Social Responsibility, Nickelodeon International. “The Together For Good Wildlife Special combined with the Tanzania launch on our Dora app allows our relationship with AWF to reach and empower all kids, from preschool to tweens on all the platforms they love. This was also the first time we brought Nickelodeon talent to the continent of Africa, and Uganda served as the perfect backdrop to develop entertaining content that teaches kids about the important implications of African wildlife conservation and to inspire them to use their voices to get involved.”


In the Together For Good Wildlife Special, Nickelodeon star Breanna Yde (School of Rock) will guide young viewers on a journey through Uganda as she discovers key conservation and environmental challenges, and hears from heroes who work daily to protect at-risk wildlife including lions, giraffes, rhinoceroses, elephants and chimpanzees. The mini-series and supplementing digital vignettes will tell the stories of real life heroes: guides, park rangers, detection dogs and their handlers – and show kids everywhere how they too can help from home with additional resources at http://wildlife.nickelodeon.tv.

The special expands beyond linear with web and social activations where young viewers can learn more about and support at-risk wildlife. Kids can also participate in the #AWFRoarChallenge on social media, which encourages kids to take videos of themselves roaring in a funny effort to scare a friend. As the official campaign hashtag, #AWFRoarChallenge will also collate fun animal facts, ways to fundraise, and additional information about the plights of lions, giraffes, rhinoceroses, elephants and chimpanzees, while showing kids that using their voice can spread the word and help save these animals from extinction.


The Together For Good Wildlife Special begins airing today across Nickelodeon’s international network of channels that span 170+ territories. To learn more about it and how you can get involved, visit http://wildlife.nickelodeon.tv

Also in partnership with AWF, Nickelodeon today launched a Tanzania environment in Dora’s Worldwide Adventure. Drawing on Dora the Explorer’s legacy of exploration, Dora’s Worldwide Adventure introduces preschoolers to geography, inviting them to learn and celebrate different cultures with Dora, Boots, Swiper and more. The Tanzania addition joins app environments that include Australia, Brazil, China, Italy, Japan, the UK and the US. Dora’s Worldwide Adventure is available for download in 12 languages outside of the US via the iTunes, Google Play and Amazon stores.

“I am optimistic about the future of conservation in Africa when I see young people actively engaged,” said AWF’s president Kaddu Sebunya. “This generation is equipped with the tools and the zeal to shape Africa’s future. Creative partnerships such as this one between Nickelodeon and the African Wildlife Foundation hold the promise of securing Africa’s fragile resources through direct engagement with youth. It is time for young people to both tell and live the conservation story.”

          Starbucks to Stop Using Plastic Straws      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The company will replace plastic straws with new, strawless drink lids.

Starbucks Coffee Company announced it will eliminate single-use plastic straws from its more than 28,000 company operated and licensed stores by making a strawless lid or alternative-material straw option available. Starbucks anticipates the move will eliminate more than one billion plastic straws per year from Starbucks stores.

Starbucks has designed, developed and manufactured a strawless lid, which will become the standard for all iced coffee, tea and espresso beverages. The lid is currently available in more than 8,000 stores in both the U.S. and Canada for select beverages including Starbucks Draft Nitro and Cold Foam. The lid is also being piloted for Nitro beverages in additional markets including China, Japan, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. In addition, Starbucks will begin offering straws made from alternative materials—including paper or compostable plastic—for Frappuccino blended beverages and by request for customers who prefer or need a straw.

“For our partners and customers, this is a significant milestone to achieve our global aspiration of sustainable coffee, served to our customers in more sustainable ways,” said Kevin Johnson, president and CEO of Starbucks, in a statement.

Customers in Seattle and Vancouver will be the first to see the strawless lids implemented, starting this fall, with phased rollouts within both the U.S. and Canada to follow in FY19. A global rollout of the strawless lid will follow, beginning in Europe where strawless lids will arrive in select stores in France and the Netherlands, as well as in the U.K. just as the market expands its 5p paper cup charge to 950 stores, to further promote reusability.

“Starbucks’ goal to eliminate plastic straws by 2020 from their stores globally represents the company’s forward thinking in tackling the material waste challenge in totality,” said Erin Simon, director of sustainability research and development and material science at World Wildlife Fund, U.S., in a statement. “Plastic straws that end up in our oceans have a devastating effect on species. As we partner with Starbucks in waste reduction initiatives such as Next Gen Consortium Cup Challenge and WWF’s Cascading Materials Vision, we hope others will follow in their footsteps.”

Starbucks has a 30-year track record of focusing on sustainability across all aspects of its business, including achieving 99 percent ethically sourced coffee. In addition to this announcement, Starbucks has previously committed $10 million to develop and help bring to market a fully recyclable and compostable hot cup, in partnership with Closed Loop Partners, through the NextGen Cup Consortium and Challenge.

As Johnson outlined in his presentation to investors at the Oppenheimer Consumer Conference in June, the company is focused on adapting to rapidly changing consumer trends with cold beverages accounting for more than 50 percent of Starbucks' beverage mix in the U.S., up from 37 percent just five years ago. The movement to eliminate single-use plastic straws has been gaining tremendous momentum globally, with consumers showing increased concern for the greater issue of waste, of which straws is just a part. That’s why Starbucks recognizes the work ahead to build on its long history in sustainability, which includes:

  • Achieving 99 percent ethically sourced coffee.
  • Trialing a 5p paper cup charge in London, which will be expanded to 950 stores in the U.K. later this month, to promote reusability.
  • Offering a discount to any customer who brings a reusable cup or tumbler to company-owned stores around the world.
  • Starbucks cups contain 10 percent post-consumer fiber, introduced in 2006 and a number the company expects to double by 2022.
  • Building more than 1,500 LEED-certified (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) stores in 20 markets, including all 50 states and Puerto Rico, the largest green retailer in its sector.
  • Starbucks purchases Renewable Energy Certificates, currently covering 62 percent of electricity usage globally, with a goal of reaching 100 percent globally by 2020.
  • Expansion of the FoodShare program that donates unsold food to food banks around the country.

GOOD SHEPHERD ENTERTAINMENT AND CREATIVEFORGE GAMES REVEAL AUG. 14 RELEASE DATE FOR PHANTOM DOCTRINE ON PLAYSTATION®4, XBOX ONE AND WINDOWS PC AMSTERDAM, Netherlands, and WARSAW, Poland – July 10, 2018 – Good Shepherd Entertainment and independent developer CreativeForge Games have revealed that Phantom Doctrine, the turn-based, tactical strategy, Cold War espionage game from the creators of Hard West, is expected to launch on Aug. 14, 2018, on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One and Windows PC for $39.99. Phantom Doctrine is a strategic, turn-based espionage thriller set in a world of covert operations, counterintelligence and paranoia. Players lead The Cabal, a secret organization fighting back against a global conspiracy trying to control the world at the peak of the Cold War. Command your base of operations in the shadows: recruit and train agents, investigate cases, forge documents and identities, research new tech and biochemical engineering, and interrogate and brainwash enemies to gain a tactical edge. Dive into Phantom Doctrine’s deep single-player mode, which offers players two different campaign backgrounds to choose from: experience its story from the perspective of either a KGB counterintelligence operative or a renegade CIA wet work commando. Phantom Doctrine’s turn-based missions are uniquely designed to encourage player choice – drop your operatives into the field with heavy weapons for an all-out assault, or deploy them with suppressed weapons and cutting-edge spy equipment to complete the mission stealthily. Position assets around the world, infiltrating hot zones with undercover operatives to back you up in a firefight and stay one step ahead of enemy agents. In addition to its more than 40-hour single-player story mode, players can also challenge rivals around the world in ruthless one-on-one online multiplayer matches, as well as unlock a New Game Plus campaign with additional story content, all for $39.99. Phantom Doctrine captures the volatile tension of the Cold War and subtle intrigue of classic spy films with atmospheric visuals, as well as an unnerving soundtrack from award-winning composer Marcin Przybylowicz (The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt).

ST. PETERSBURG, Russia — Belgium's golden generation has come up short at a major tournament. Again.

With Kevin De Bruyne and Eden Hazard in fantastic form creating chances for themselves and Romelu Lukaku up front, Vincent Kompany fit again at the heart of the defense and Thibaut Courtois standing tall in goal, these Red Devils racked up more goals than any other team in the World Cup. Through five matches, it looked as if they could finally deliver on their promise.

But with their King Philippe watching from the stands, there was to be no coronation.

After reaching the World Cup semifinals for the first time since 1986, Roberto Martinez's talent-packed team lost 1-0 to France on Tuesday at St. Petersburg Stadium on a Samuel Umtiti second-half header from a corner kick.

"Damn set piece, that's all I can say," Kompany said.

A Belgium team featuring many of the same stars lost 1-0 to Argentina in the World Cup quarterfinal four years ago and then was shocked 3-1 by Wales in the European Championship quarterfinals two years ago.

Even through the first 30 minutes in St. Petersburg, this side had looked different, carving out chances and containing France's counterattacks.

"We had more chances today, we had more control of the match," Kompany said. "We weren't in control two years ago against Argentina."

But the potent Belgian attack gradually faded as France's rock-solid defense handed Belgium its first shutout of the tournament.

Instead of playing Sunday in Moscow for its first World Cup, Belgium will be back in St. Petersburg on Saturday, playing in the third-place match and wondering if its championship window has closed.

Belgium's beaten players did not want to talk about the end of an era — not with stars like 27-year-old De Bruyne, 26-year-old Courtois and 25-year-old Lukaku in the team and more coming through the youth ranks.

"Generations. Who talks about generations?" De Bruyne said. "We are a small country. We can be very happy and lucky that we can have the team what we have. We don't have the resources, the infrastructure, the money that other countries have. What we have is a really good team that performed really well."

The last time a Belgium team got this far at the World Cup, it lost 2-0 to Argentina at the 1986 tournament in Mexico. A pair of Diego Maradona second-half goals sank Belgium that day.

Long considered the a lesser footballing nation than its neighbor the Netherlands — whose orange-clad teams have reached three World Cup finals and lost them all — this Belgium team has at least dispelled the Dutch shadow.

Kompany, an injury-prone 32-year-old who may well have played his last World Cup in Russia, believes that, despite the loss, the class of 2018 has done his nation a favor.

"Generations come and go," Kompany said. "For Belgian football I think eventually there will still be an opportunity to do well. It allows the country to be more ambitious and believe in its own talent. So maybe for the future we've still done something good for Belgian football."

Martinez didn't talk about the end of an era, but he was already looking to the future after the match.

"As it happens in any big tournament, you need to look at the younger generations and try to become stronger," he said. "From tournament to tournament, that's the drive and the ambition."

Belgium was left Tuesday still clinging to the elusive ambition of reaching a first World Cup final.

          FSSP elects new superior general      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Lincoln, Neb., Jul 10, 2018 / 10:42 am (CNA/EWTN News).- The general chapter of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter, a society of apostolic life which celebrates the extraordinary form of the Roman rite, on Monday elected Fr. Andrzej Komorowski as its next superior general.

The July 9 election was made at the FSSP's Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary in Denton, Neb., about 10 miles southwest of Lincoln. The general chapter is being held July 3-18.

Fr. Komorowski was born in Poland in 1975, and studied economics at the University of Poznań. He then joined the FSSP's European seminary, St. Peter's Seminary in Wigratzbad, Germany, and was ordained a priest in 2006.

He has ministered at FSSP apostolates in Poland, Belgium, Switzerland, and the Netherlands. He has served as assistant of the superior general since 2012, and as general bursar.

Fr. Komorowski succeeds Fr. John Berg as superior general of the FSSP, and is the fourth man to the hold that position.

The FSSP forms priests for the use of the extraordinary form of the Roman Rite, and having formed them, deploys priests in parishes for the service of the Church.

The priestly fraternity was founded in 1988 by 12 priests of the Society of St. Pius X. The founders left the SSPX to establish the FSSP after the society's leader, Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, consecrated four bishops without the permission of St. John Paul II.

There are currently almost 287 priests and 150 seminarians in the fraternity. It has parishes and chapels in North America, Europe, Oceania, Nigeria, and Colombia.

English version of the political philosopher’s interview with Vadim Kamenka of L’Humanite Dimanche (21 June) and Ana Maria Merlo for Il Manifesto (15 June).

Image of European Parliament, June 2018. Global Media Group/Press Association. All rights reserved.

IM/HD: We are today witnessing the advance of nationalist, xenophobic and extreme-right groups in every successive European election. They have even managed to enter government, for instance, in Italy. What’s going on?

Etienne Balibar (EB): This trend has been ongoing for years and reveals a crisis in the current form of European construction, which is probably irreversible. 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.

But ever since the Greek crisis and Brexit, it has also become clear that it is neither possible to leave the EU, nor to expel a member state. Obviously, some political forces believe in an exit from Europe, but no government can impose it. I think the situation will further deteriorate as we head towards a mutual neutralisation of hegemonic forces in Europe due to the lack of an alternative project on the part of new individuals, emergent groups or political movements. The consequences of this development are unpredictable.

IM/HD: Will we see an EU showdown with Italy, similar to the one in 2015?

EB: The statements of the president of the EU Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, are revealing. He has said that he wanted to avoid the errors made in 2015. But what errors is he referring to? Is he talking about the content, about the wilful destruction of an economy and a society? Or is he merely talking about the form this took, which hadn’t respected the procedures? The European leaders know that they cannot show the same open contempt towards the choice made by the Italians with which they treated that of the Greeks. But I do find it telling that they want to avoid a conflict with the extreme-right while they deliberately sought it with the left-wing government. I do find it telling that they want to avoid a conflict with the extreme-right while they deliberately sought it with the left-wing government.

IM/HD: Do the suggestions for an overhaul of Europe put forward by French president Emmanuel Macron during his speech at the Sorbonne or the plans laid out by German Chancellor Angela Merkel really take into account the full extent of the crisis that Europe is undergoing?

EB: What plan? It’s mere window dressing. Of course cultural exchanges are important. But it won’t take us very far if it’s only to proclaim once again the common destiny of the European peoples. The crux of the matter is the EU economic and financial structures. Banks have already been consolidated. The project to transform the European solidarity mechanism into a monetary fund was inspired by the rules of the IMF. And Germany and the Netherlands still don’t accept a common budget without guarantees against transfers.

Ever since the crisis of 2008, economists have repeatedly said that a single currency cannot work without a common budget. But Germany only accepts minor adjustments, and it is likely that the French government will head in the same direction. This will seal the sovereignty of financial institutions instead of limiting competition between European states and producers and thereby strengthening solidarity.

The project that is here outlined certainly doesn’t attempt to ward off the splitting of Europe into hierarchical economic zones: attractive zones for foreign capital, subcontracting zones, zones for the supply of a cheap workforce and holiday zones for the bourgeoisie and petty bourgeoisie. What happens in Greece today is striking. The salaries and pensions have collapsed, current accounts are picking up, and the tourism industry is running at full capacity. The environmental and sociological consequences are terrifying.

IM/HD: Macron’s Sorbonne speech at least mentioned the necessity to fight against the rise of the extreme right. Does nothing in the project that is currently under discussion pick up on this dimension?

EB: Frankly, I find it astonishing that no debate on the crisis besetting European construction is taking place in the European Parliament. Maybe it would be a cacophony, speeches with fascist leanings would be delivered by populist forces, some of which are already in power or about to enter government. But we can’t ignore the fact that the crisis of the system is also its lack of democracy. The more profound it gets, the more technocrats will argue that the population should not have its say. They fear that their capacity for action will be paralysed. The more profound [the crisis] gets, the more technocrats will argue that the population should not have its say.

But what are they doing about it? I wonder when the time will be ripe for public debates about the problems of Europe on a European level and not in a small committee of the Commission or of the heads of states. The situation is certainly worrying enough for a debate to take place in the European Parliament without waiting for a common agreement between Macron and Merkel on a minimum programme.

The “reconstruction” programme won’t get Europe out of its current crisis. Let’s stop the hypocritical discourse dividing Europe into those who pay and those who receive. As if German, Dutch or French tax payers were subsidising southern Europe. This really is the true “populism”.

All creditor countries are profiting from the differential salaries and interest rates. Germany is able to export everywhere because it is producing in national conditions while selling on the global market with a currency that is not too strong. This explains the entire opposition of German capitalists to amending the contract of 1992. It is the foundation of their European governance. Macron has never even contemplated attacking it.

IM/HD: Why are left-wing factions so unable to weigh in on the current debate?

EB: If the left wants to rebuild itself, this can only happen in many countries simultaneously. The left has to conceive of itself as a European Left, despite the many difficulties. In this sense, the idea of a trans-European campaign launched by Varoufakis seems right.

Such a campaign is necessary in order to break down the barriers and bring the debate onto the citizen’s level. But this is not self-evident. Many believed (myself included) that unification from above would exert sufficient pressure to trigger off a cross-border debate despite the many obstacles such as language, political cultures, organisational crises, the rise to power of technocrats, the monopoly of national political elites. All this made people withdraw into their own territories which are slipping from their grasp. And this is exploited in demagogic and backward discourses. But the left must face the real world.

It was also an error to believe that the European construction would render the national question obsolete or relativize it. The current crisis proves the opposite. No nation or region has the privilege of nationalism to themselves. The purely negative conception of national interest remains the most commonly shared matter in Europe. Every single country is afraid of being exploited by a neighbour or dissolved by a globalisation in which Europe would merely be the humble instrument. The purely negative conception of national interest remains the most commonly shared matter in Europe.

IM/HD: Are such examples as the Aquarius and the 600 people who cannot find refuge on a continent as rich as Europe proof that conservative ideas and nationalist movements deploying the mythical threat of massive immigration have won out in our societies?

EB: The only advantage in this appalling episode is that Europeans cannot perceive of the problem as purely Italian any more.

For years, France has had an attitude of repugnant hypocrisy. It gives lessons to others, but from Calais to the Italian borders migrants and those who help them are being harrassed. Inequalities and humiliations are creating this identical “hostile environment” to the one the British government made a hue and cry about. What I’m also scandalised about is the fact that France hasn’t even accepted a tenth of the refugees it had promised to take, while Angela Merkel accepted hundreds of thousands of them. Finally, we have to admit that the policies of the Visegrad group are not so very different from our own: they’re only more sincere. Finally, we have to admit that the policies of the Visegrad group are not so very different from our own: they’re only more sincere.

The question everybody is asking is how to balance all the dimensions of the problem. Rationally, looking at the number of displaced persons and the capacities of member states, there is nothing irresolvable. It’s not an invasion. It is necessary to create the proper means to receive them, teach them the language, help them get through... The other aspect is the Mediterranean hecatomb which is taking genocidal dimensions. It’s an extreme phrase, but how else are we to define the elimination of thousands of individuals based on their race – an elimination that is tolerated, anticipated and organised by default. It’s a rampant genocide, taking place not in a closed territory but in a borderland between states. History will hold us accountable for this.

IM/HD: What would your main propositions for the genuine rebuilding of Europe look like?

EB: Europe can only be relaunched by addressing three questions. First, the question about the role it plays in globalisation: can it change its course and if so in what direction? Secondly, faced with neoliberalism, can a social European project be revived, and if so with which supporting forces ? Thirdly, can an equilibrium be found between the representation of the citizens by and large and the representation of nations or nationalities. In other words, can Europe invent the representative, participative and pluralist federal framework that it needs? Can Europe invent the representative, participative and pluralist federal framework that it needs?

I insist on this question because it is the key to the other ones. Each one of our countries suffers from the pathology of representative democracy, because the formal powers are not localised at the same place as the real powers.

But the era of representation won’t end as long as public institutions exist – Habermas is certainly right on this point. The question of European finances needs to be linked to the question of the political representation of the European people.

They've updated their work several times, and above is the latest version. See the image full-size at Facebook. The 12 soccer players and their coach are represented by boars. Notice the last one out of the cave is larger than the others -that's the coach. The other animals are representative of:

White Elephant - Former Chiang Rai governor Narongsak Osatanakorn

White Horse - The royal family and various Thai government agencies

Red Cross Horse - Medical team and nurses

Seals - Navy SEALs

Frogs - Other divers

(Yürüyüş magazine No. 72, June 24, 2018)

RESISTANCE IS CONSTANT IN A COUNTRY WITH CONSTANT FASCISM BUT FRONT REVOLUTIONARIES CAN BRING IT TO LIFE

ONLY THE REVOLUTIONARIES HAVE THE HONOUR OF RESISTING IMPERIALISM AND FASCISM!

Every passing day, imperialism in the world and in Turkey, the collaborationist oligarchy and AKP fascism ruling the country in its name step up their attacks on the people and on different sections of the people. At first glance the increase in the attacks is founded on imperialism and fascism being powerful, but on the contrary it is based on them being helpless and lacking a way out. Because the crisis of the system has been deep in a way it had not been for a long time. Moreover every day its dimensions grow with every passing day.

Imperialism is a system in which a handful of imperialist-capitalist countries, by means of monopolies in the more backward countries of the world, engage in secret or open occupation of these countries, using many different methods to exploit them and hold them under imperialist domination. Exploitation is the essence of this system. There is no murder that cannot be committed in order to keep the wheel of exploitation turning.


Recent history is full of examples of this. In the first and second imperialist wars, millions were slaughtered for the sake of the interests of imperialism. From Korea to Vietnam, from Algeria to Latin America, in many places the peoples were slaughtered so that imperialism’s wheel of exploitation could continue to turn and to make the peoples accept imperialism’s ideological and physical domination. Certainly US imperialism was the chief force carrying out these attacks.

From the second imperialist war to today, a number of events taking place all over the world were characteristic of US imperialism which heads the imperialist camp and done for the sake of its interests, and this is proved by a number of concrete examples. In particular in 1991, after the dissolution of the Soviet Union, imperialism announced its “certain” victory and there were developments in line with a process called “a unipolar world”, for example in the Gulf War waged against Iraq, meant to show how “determined” the USA was to dominate the world.

According to a report in the economic magazine Forbes, just the 400 wealthiest US monopolies, headed by Bill Gates who has a fortune of 86 billion dollars, possess more wealth than the GDP of 140 countries of the world, countries like Costa Rica, El Salvador, Bolivia and Uruguay. A US citizen consumes 600 times more than an average Ethiopian… This exploitation is one of the real reasons for the USA’s attacks left and right which do not cease, and for the extraordinary development of its armed forces.

Imperialist plunder – in a world with a population of seven billion, over 70%, that is, more than five billion people, 1.5 billion live on the threshold of hunger and every five seconds a child does of hunger or of hunger-related illnesses.

Every day, 25,000 people die of hunger, 17,000 of them children. Every year 18 million people die of hunger directly, 70 million from causes connected to it According to the UN, this hunger could be eliminated totally by spending 50 billion dollars! That is, an amount not even the profit of one of the world’s monopolies!

In brief, this is what the world we live in looks like. And the most striking aspects of this tableau are imperialist occupation, exploitation, hunger, poverty, injustice, blood and tears. Imperialism can give the world’s peoples nothing more than that.

Imperialism’s Ideological And Physical Attacks Started Accompanied by Its Shouts That “Socialism Is Dead” And The Only M-L Organisation that Did Not Surrender Is The Front!

Imperialism wants the surrender of all who are an obstacle to its policies and when it cannot practise its economic policies as it desires it tries every path to get countries, organisations and peoples to surrender.

Countries, organisations and individuals that are seen as enemies are pressured to surrender; its aim is to delete thoughts like independence, democracy and socialism from minds, liquidate socialist beliefs and impose the definite supremacy of its own ideology and politics.

This ideological, psychological attack takes a parallel form to the military attack, from literature to cinema, from music to TV series and advertisements, to the big media companies, every means, every method is used…

The imperialist bloc, principally the USA, started to use the “socialism is finished” propaganda since the Soviet Union was torn down. This process ran at the same time as the “New World Order” establishment.

In this process countries had no interiors any more, it was said – “the world is a global village”, “no more borders”. This ideological propaganda was so powerful that it was said “national borders will no longer prevent humanitarian intervention” and this created an ideological basis for the occupation of countries, massacres, and every kind of military and political intervention. The impression was created that “imperialism defends peace and freedom”. Deception achieved through this propaganda and with the help of “independent international civil society foundations” succeeded in making them into reserve forces of other states and international institutions.

At the start of the 1990s the imperialists like a chorus proclaimed the end of the class war, the definite victory of capitalism, that imperialism had changed and was no longer the old aggressive imperialism, and it had brought democracy and human rights to the world. However actual developments were not like that, and the words saying imperialism had changed were one by one composed of lies and deceit, it was clear and continues to be clear that imperialism is the same parasitical, exploitative, blood-sucking and aggressive that it ever was.

Statements that imperialism had changed and capitalism had won definite victory, that imperialism had won definite hegemony over the world and the world’s peoples contained a major attempt to intimidate Marxist-Leninist organisations and organisations waging the national liberation war.

Together with announcing the “new world order”, the USA started the process wrapping itself in phrases like “national security”, “the fight against international terrorism”, “protecting democracy and freedoms” and “defending peace”. A product of this period was that imperialist attacks came on the agenda. Occupations and neo-colonialism continued and even became more intense. At the same time from Latin America to the Middle East to our country, everywhere the peoples had “peace” foisted on them but in fact it was surrender they were continuing to encourage.

A lot of ostensibly left-wing petty bourgeois intellectuals joined in imperialism’s lying chorus, bringing left-wing grist to imperialism’s mill. The aim was clear: peoples and organisations waging the national liberation struggle against imperialism were to be made to believe the lie that imperialism had changed and so they would be brought to surrender ideologically as well as physically. Because imperialism knew very well that physical defat was inevitable after minds had first been made to surrender.

Imperialism scored important successes with such policies, it succeeded in getting many organisations to surrender and liquidate themselves. Imperialism launched ideological attacks in th past and continues them today but especially since the start of the 1990sit has got organisations with thousands of fighters like the FARC, ETA and PKK, some Marxist-Leninist, some petit bourgeois national liberation movements, to seek negotiation with imperialism and its collaborators and abandon weapons.

Previously ETA announced a cease-fire, afterwards it announced it had abandoned weapons and buried them in concrete. Finally last May it announced that it had liquidated itself in a letter distributed on the Internet. The Spanish government stated that this did not mean that ETA had liquidated itself, and declared that “a reckoning would be demanded of all ETA members for their crimes”.

FARC sat down at the negotiating table with the collaborationist oligarchy of Colombia and signed an agreement, shaking hands with the murderers of thousands of its comrades and hundreds of thousands of Colombians. It took a decision to have its weapons melted down and turned into monuments. In return for what? For nothing, other than saving their own lives… This is called surrender, for liberation it is not.

In our country the PKK has experienced a parallel process to that of ETA and FARC, and it is continuing to do so. The PKK gives ground every day in the face of imperialism’s ideological attacks, it gave up the aim of an independent Kurdistan a long time ago and it has got to the point of having the USA establish 11 bases and becoming the paid soldiers of collaboration.

As Imperialism’s Crisis Deepens, It Steps Up Its Attacks

Today, from Yemen to Nicaragua, from North Korea to Iran, this is the sole reason for its attacks and threats. As under the name of the “Arab spring”, starting in 2011 attempts have been made to bring countries of the Middle East and North Africa into line, Yemen did not surrender to policies aimed at creating collaborationist governments, and is one of several countries that rendered these politics ineffective.

It is possible to add to the list. And this shows how imperialism’s crisis deepens. It fears that the “21st century will be the century of uprisings”. This is the basic reason for the attacks and threats by imperialism, large and small, direct and indirect. Because of this fear it makes attacks and threats.

US imperialism’s economic and political crisis is based on being bogged down in the swamp of the Middle East, it gets weaker as it steps up its attacks, most importantly it tries to continue its ideological domination. On the one hand it tries to draw forces like the PKK/PYD-YPG that are becoming collaborationist into its swamp, on the other it attacks countries like Iran, North Korea and Palestine as well as peoples that the potential to resist US domination, or else it openly threatens them.

BECAUSE THE TRUTH IS THAT WHERE THERE IS REPRESSION AND EXPLOITATION THERE IS ALSO RESISTANCE!

The only Marxist-Leninist organisation resisting conciliation with imperialism and the liquidationist attacks is the Front. Just one front resisting on the surface of the earth, in which USA imperialism wants to establish its empire.

FARC, ETA, PKK… giving up weapons, having them melted down to be turned into monuments, or having them buried in concrete and signing surrender documents to that effect; whereas we have commanders like Leyla who dug up buried weapons after a bombardment in which many of our friends were incinerated, and used those weapons to demand a reckoning. And this is the great ideological and moral strength we have.

With this strength we are building up our resistance, in the countryside, cities, prisons and both in our country and in Europe.

We Are The Only Ones Resisting Fascism, There Is The Front!

The political, economic and social picture of our country we have described is not different in general from the world as a whole. On the one hand an economy designed so collaborationist monopolies can grow, on the other hand greater hunger, poverty and misery for the poor…

This is the barest statement of the situation in our country. Hunger, poverty, exploitation and unemployment in our country, growing worse with every passing day, ours is a country in which the imperialists confiscate its natural wealth. The result of this is that every day a parasitical collaborationist bourgeoisie grows wealthier and builds up its profits, while on the other we confront the reality of Turkey in which millions are submerged by hunger and poverty.

In our country 16 MILLION people go to bed hungry. Naturally this image goes together with constant fascism. Because Turkey is a neo-colonial country. There is to be no possibility of transmitting the crisis to the imperialist-capitalist countries responsible, so for this reason Turkey is ruled by permanent fascism.

On July 15, 2016, the oligarchy’s internal dogfight came to a head with a failed coup attempt. The AKP continued in government and took the opportunity to declare OHAL (state of emergency) targeting our peoples and revolutionaries, above all the Front supporters. In this period they have even trampled on their own laws, adopted from the September 12 (1980) junta. The AKP has used all possibilities institutionalised by the September 12 pro-American junta, and has caused state terror to proliferate. This terror continues today without any let-up.

AKP fascism behind the mask of OHAL has carried out attacks on every section of the people, from public workers and peasants to intellectuals and artists, from the Kurdish people to revolutionaries and socialists, and it continues to carry out these attacks. The focal point of these attacks is the PEOPLE’S FRONT which does not give in to any repression or massacres.

Almost every month our democratic associations are raided. Our magazine offices, culture centres, associations and neighbourhoods are blockaded. Our associations are sealed but we break them open. We do not recognise bans, nor will we ever!

Without even stopping for breath our people are abducted and subjected to severe torture, even greeting someone is almost enough to be imprisoned. Our events and concerts are banned, our holiday events and iftars are held under police blockade.

They want our people’s artists, people’s lawyers, people’s engineers and architects to be rendered unable to function.

The justice schools for people’s lawyers are among the institutions that have been closed. In Ankara twice, in Istanbul three times they raided justice schools and put seals on the doors. The lawyers and students resisted and put up barricades.

This is what it is to be a revolutionary lawyer, revolutionary artist, revolutionary engineer or architect, which they want to erode and destroy.

We Will Erode OHAL Bans And AKP Fascism And Pass Over Them!

In its 16 years in power, the AKP has banned dozens of strikes. A high proportion of them have been under OHAL. OHAL has been the main excuse for the bans. That is, while the AKP is claiming to oppose “FETO”, it has used OHAL to favour the interests of bosses and as a weapon against the resistance of the workers.

And this is only natural because the AKP is the representative of the oligarchy, in particular the interests of the bosses. They have used OHAL as an excuse to ban strikes and have not drawn back from defending it and stating that they will do everything to defend the interests of bosses. Tayyip Erdogan has given voice to this reality on several occasions. It was Erdogan himself who told (employers’ federation) TUSIAD, “You say we did not give what you wanted. We declared OHAL for you, we banned strikes. Without OHAL could we have done this?”

Certainly they did not limit themselves to strike bans. A great many workers’ actions were not carried out, banned or attacked by police using the same excuse, that “there is OHAL”.

The AKP did not just use OHAL as a weapon against workers but also against public employees, and sought to use it to legitimise their attacks. In the period immediately after July 15, and continuing to today, 150,000 public workers have been suspended.

In the OHAL period from July 15 to today;

Thousands of people have been detained, tortured and imprisoned, prisons and police stations have been turned into torture centres;

Hundreds of associations, foundations, culture centres and democratic institutions have been closed and their doors sealed up;

Hundreds of newspapers, magazines, publishing houses, television and radio stations and agencies have had to cease functioning;

Nearly 150,000 civil servants have been suspended, thousands fired and they are attempting to use hunger as a means of discipline. Two public workers they have tried to disciple through hunger are Nuriye GULMEN and Semih OZAKCA. They resisted on hunger strike for 326 DAYS and turned this weapon on the AKP.

Journalists, lawyers, mayors, trade unionists, intellectuals and artists included, every section of the people has had some share in being attacked as they try to silence all opposition, be it revolutionary or reformist.

In Kurdistan, curfews continue to be turned into massacres.

In the four corners of Turkey, dozens of people have been deliberately murdered at home or on the street on the pretext that “they did not heed the call to stop” or there was a “clash”, and “people run over by armoured cars” are presented as road accidents.

In short, AKP fascism tramples on its own laws and since July 15 it has ruled the country through KHK (legal decrees under the state of emergency). In this process all masks of fascism have fallen, together with the open fascism institutionalised by September 12 this is what we confront in the most basic and deeply-embedded fashion.

Constant Resistance To Constant Fascism

Everywhere It Is Only The Front That Resists

Alev Sahin for 317 Days In Duzce,

Yuksel resistance For 593 Days,

We Continue To Resist For Two Years Without Interruption As The Free Prisoners, 400 People Have Been Sent To Prisons To Be Tortured, We Have Set Fire To 30 Prison Cells!

The ideological and physical attacks of imperialism have affected a good many sections in our country, quite a few organisations that defended armed struggle in the past have drifted into the swamp of legalism and have gradually taken their place inside the system, losing their claims to revolution and socialism. Leave aside claims to revolution and socialism, we confront a left that cannot defend the most ordinary democratic demands and its own institutions against fascist attacks.

In our country there is a conciliatory and obedient left reality that cannot even call imperialism imperialism, or fascism fascism. During the election it has been seen that they did not simply tail the Kurdish nationalists, since in the name of being against the AKP they even presented Muharrem Ince and Meral Aksener as legitimate. From trade unions to democratic mass organisations, from legal and illegal parties and organisations to petit bourgeois intellectuals, all sections distanced themselves from a line of struggle in favour of obedience and conciliation.

And certainly despite all the ideological and physical attacks by imperialism and the collaborationist oligarchy, there is a Front reality which at great cost continues to hold with pride the red flag of Marxism-Leninism and socialism. And we say with pride: the only Marxist-Leninist organisation that resists imperialism, continues armed warfare and lays claim to revolution is the Front.

There are supporters of the Front, we are also alone in resisting fascist attacks. At the start of July 2016 (immediately before July 15) Front prisoners in the jails began General Resistance to rights being taken away and attacks.

Prison uniforms, exile transports, restrictions on books, bans on visits, roll call while having to stand, bans on using telephones, cameras, visits to the doctor while handcuffed, obstruction of treatment for ill prisoners, denial of communication as a punishment, sponge rooms, wires pulling into exercise areas… Every kind of dishonour and attack has been resisted by Free Prisoners.

In two years of the General Resistance, no less than 30 cells have been set on fire! 

To try and make our prisoners surrender, there have been no less than 400 times people were sent on exile transports, involving the use of torture. They still did not get revolutionary willpower to surrender. Resistance continues with all its warmth and enthusiasm. These are FREE PRISONERS…

While the prisoners resist inside the jails, their families resist outside and are their breath and voice. Despite attacks and arrests involving the use of torture, the TAYAD Families continue to campaign against prison uniform attacks, denial of treatment to ill prisoners and isolation, and they continue to resist.

AKP fascism does not limit its attacks to the prisons. We have described attacks on all the people’s forces, on workers, labourers, revolutionaries. Look at all these attacks – has there been consistent resistance other than from us?

For example, what have KESK, with 250,000 members, done? A section of the 150,000 public workers suspended have been KESK members. What has been the behaviour of KESK? Did it organise a single act of resistance? Apart from a few written statements, what did it do?

Among hundreds of thousands of public workers, only the KEC (Public Workers’ Front) took a decision to resist. In the middle of Ankara Nuriye Gulmen wrote resistance into history, Semih Ozakca took part in the resistance and every day arrests under torture took place with ever greater attacks. The response by the resistance was to escalate into an Indefinite Hunger Strike.

Despite being in prison and subjected to isolation, the threat of force-feeding and even though their needs were not met, they continued their resistance for 324 days even after being released. During this period, the resistance in Ankara Yuksel also continued. The KEC’s Nazife Onay, Akman Simsek and Celal Akgun were imprisoned.
With the new resisters, the Yuksel resistance continuing in new forms is not only present in our country, but worldwide it has created solidarity and sympathy. Never mind KESK organising the resistance, it actually took a hostile attitude to the resistance of Nuriye and Semih that had set the world aflame. They ignored the resistance and they closed the gates of union buildings to it. KESK actually threatened to call the police when the KEC organised a sit-down action in their building.

What did DISK do in relation to OHAL, and in relation to the increasing attacks against workers by means of OHAL? The attitude of DISK was not different from KESK. They organised attacks on resisting workers, and the DISK gang even organised lynching attacks but the president Kani Beko did not organise any resistance against fascism.
"We will use our power from production" he said in a masterful way and and finally "I will carry the voice of the workers into parliament," he said, announcing his candidacy. Of course this not only the situation with Kani Beko. We are up against trade unionism without any content, a race to get into parliament, a corrupt trade unionism, a boss trade unionism.
Arzu Cerkezoglu, who is replacing Kani Beko as DISK chair  made a visit to the Flormar workers in struggle and she said, "No power can stand in the way of a woman who is resisting," she says.
Naturally, you would expect someone who said that to resist or be on the side of resistance but this is not the case.
Arzu Cerkezoglu was one of those DISK managers who organised an attack on Oya Baydak, a woman who actually resists. Yes, the truth is that there is no power that can stop a woman who resists. Resistance that they started on their own - Turkan Albayrak, Cansel Malatyali, Oya Baydak. And from Nuriye Gulmen we know this is the case.
Where are Arzu Cerkezoglu and DISK managers during these acts of resistance? The answer is clear... Arzu Cerkezoglu and the DISK leadership are against them. Nuriye Gulmen went to Izmir to support the worker Mahir Kilic and one of DISK’s central managers was shameless enough to say to Nuriye Gulmen, "What happened to your resistance?"
Has there been a single resistance that results in victory? The answer to  the question is also clear: No, there is none.
Of course this conciliationist attitude is not limited to DISK and KESK. The most "communist" in the OHAL process and the most reformist all adopted a “wait-and-see” policy against attacks by fascism. They calculated on how to survive with minimal damage. There were no programmes or goals for the future.
As if they were waiting for someone with a magic wand expecting everything to change, they put their hopes in the ballot box.
Hundreds of associations, cultural centres, publications and publishing houses were closed, seals
put on their doors.
We are the only one that resist the arbitrariness. We dismantled the seals, set up barricades when they came to re-install them. We resisted. Outside the institutions where the Front is present, there was no resistance anywhere. Fascist attacks grow every day. Who else has resisted them?
The situation of TMMOB is no different. 550,000 engineers and architects are registered, only the people’s architect Alev Sahin resists. Not only to get back work and bread but so people are not killed by new earthquakes or suspended.
 Just look at the weekly resistance calendar of Alev Sahin! Both in the square of resistance in Duzce
And in front of Duzce AKP’s Office and in a sit-down action at TMMOB.
Yes, she resists against the victimisation of members of your own professional organisation, and the TMMOB management is against her.
Nuriye, Semih, Alev, Mehmet, Acun, Nazife, Nazan, Engin ... they persist for months, they resist.
They resist despite systematic and heavy torture.
Mehmet's foot, Acun Hoca's heart, the hair of Gulnaz, the bruised face of Perihan who is in her 70s, Nazan's broken cheekbone, twice in a day the police drag them along the ground... in Duzce there are lynch attempts, AKP provocations, detention, torture ... None of them had their resistance broken…
The police often do not allow a statement to be read for even a minute before attacking. The resistance, as of 24 June 2018, has continued for 593 days, organising itself even in the midst of torture.

REVOLUTIONISM IS NOT A CRIME IT IS A DUTY
Europe Too Will Not Get Revolutionaries To Surrender!
Oue tradition of resistance in Europe is not new, it is rooted in tradition. Wherever in the world there is a Front prisoner, there is absolutely resistance. No imposition, for Free Prisoners do not submit to dishonour.
Free Prisoners in Greece, Erdal in Poland, Musa Asoglu in Germany, Erdogan Cakir in France – all won victories by hunger strikes.
Not many years ago, in German prisons the Free Prisoner Sadi OZPOLAT many times resisted the isolation by the German state,  the imposition of prison uniform, going on hunger strike for months, and every time German imperialism gave in.
Musa Asoglu, in the courtrooms of German imperialism, is turning it into an arena of ideological struggle. The legitimacy of revolution is shouted out in courtrooms, the two ideologies clash there.
Yusuf Tas, Ozgur Aslan, Ozkan Guzel, Erdal Gokoglu are continuing the Free Prisoner tradition in Europe's isolation cells, including hunger strikes. Finally last week, the prisoner of French imperialism, Erdogan CAKIR, won a victory with a hunger strike against the attempts to extradite him to Turkey.
Not only in prisons but in European city squares there have been many acts of resistance. From England to Greece, from Austria to the Netherlands, from Germany to Belgium; long marchs to support freedom for prisoners, sit-down actions, tent resistance, bicycle rides in supporting Grup Yorum against bans, and various forms of action and resistance are carried out by the People’s Front.

Erdem VARAN, father of Grup Yorum member Betul and also Bergun Varan's father. He lives in Holland and has two daughters unlawfully imprisoned by fascism in Turkey. For months he has resisted in a square in the Netherlands demanding “Freedom For Grup Yorum”.

Despite living in Belgium for 17 years, Cahit ZOREL has had his right to remain taken away because of his beliefs, and has been protesting in front of the court building since April 17.
On the 50th day of the resistance, he was subjected to a fascist knife attack but Cahit stressed that he would not give up.

Gulaferit had all her rights taken away after being released from prison, and she resists for her rights in Berlin.
Ozgur Aslan was released and did not accept the impositions of German imperialism, he said revolutionism is not a crime, it’s a mission.
In Turkey or in Europe, inside or outside jail... Imperialism and fascist raids, arrests, heavy
torture, exile transport, prison isolation, fascist attacks, nothing succeeds. Revolutionary will cannot be made to surrender.

No Attack Is Enough To Make Revolutionaries Surrender Because;
Only we are building up the claim to socialism, we resist and win in all conditions... What resistance is and what victory is are not a matter of chance, the issue is ideological independence, ideological determination and clarity.
Fascism in the face of Marxist-Leninist ideology is helpless.
Prison, prices on our heads, artists of the people resist death threats...
People's lawyers are inside and outside prison, resisting...
People's engineers-architects resist...
This is the key to victory.
Gulaferit Unsal has been in prison for years in Germany and now she continues to resist for her rights outside.
Ozkan Guzel resists so as not to accept any pressure put on him.
Resistance is a responsibility on the shoulders of every People's Front member. Resistance and victory to be a link in our chain of victory. Hundreds of kilometres separate them but we can find the road to resistance. We can put pressure on courts and prisons with our phones and faxes.
You can carry out actions, participate in them, make a phone call in support, spread the news. They have won political victory already by deciding to resist, it is our responsibility to turn it into material gains.
History is onot just about bearing witness, it is in our hands to be a part of it. We will win; because we resist.
VICTORY GOES TO THOSE WHO RESIST!
          An unintended consequence of Trump's trade war is coming for one of the industries that will be hit hardest, and it could give him a big win      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

soybean farmer

  • US soybean farmers are expected to be a major loser in President Donald Trump's trade war with China.
  • US soybean exports surged over the past two months because of distortions from Trump's trade battles with China.
  • This is likely to boost US second-quarter gross domestic product, helping to give Trump a big public-relations win on the economy. 

US soybean farmers are expected to get whacked by President Donald Trump's trade war with China, but not before helping hand the president a potentially significant economic victory.

While many farmers and experts expect the industry to take a significant hit because of the trade war, dramatic changes in soybean shipments ahead of the tariffs could help lift upcoming US gross-domestic-product numbers, giving Trump a big economic talking point.

Soybeans were hit with a new tariff by the Chinese government last week as part of the retaliation for Trump's tariffs on $34 billion worth of Chinese goods. The decision to apply duties to soybeans was a big one — the crop is the largest US agricultural export, and China was the destination for $14.2 billion worth of US soybeans in 2016.

But the move was a long time coming. China threatened to impose restrictions on soybeans as far back as March. This gave US soybean farmers an opportunity to rush the product out of the country before the trade war kicked off in earnest, but it also seriously shifted trade patterns for the crop.

According to The Wall Street Journal, China began to shift its purchases away from US farmers and toward Brazilian soybeans in the spring. With China soaking up much of the Brazilian supply, other countries like Egypt, Thailand, and the Netherlands increased their purchases of US soybeans. This led to a surge in US exports, but also a steep drop in shipments to China that increased longer-term concerns.

But for 2018's second quarter, the outlook for soybean farmers is solid. Based on data from Ian Shepherdson, the chief economist at Pantheon Macroeconomics, soybean exports will clock their two best months since mid-2016 in May and June.

In turn, the soybean mad dash is likely to provide a huge boost to second-quarter US GDP, Shepherdson said.

"Weekly data show that soybean exports rose again in June, but we're then expecting to see a steep fall in July," Shepherdson wrote in a note to clients. "In the second quarter, though, we estimate that soybean exports will contribute some 0.6 percentage points to GDP growth, at an annualized rate."

The Atlanta Federal Reserve Bank's GDP Now, a tracker used to predict quarterly GDP, predicts second-quarter GDP will hit 3.8% annualized growth.

Screen Shot 2018 07 09 at 5.22.33 PM

The sudden uptick in soybean exports mirrors the surge during the summer of 2016, when crop yields from South America — the typical soybean suppliers over those months — fell well short of expectations and allowed US farmers to step in. That quarter, the boosted trade component, mostly due to the soybean surge, added 0.83 percentage points to GDP.

Trump has long set a target of 3% to 4% annual GDP growth for his administration. The soybean exports should provide a boost for one quarter, but the Trump administration hasn't been shy about pointing to single-quarter data to show that the country is meeting Trump's goals.

A boost would come amid significant price pressure for soybean farmers. Soybean futures contracts have fallen to their lowest level since 2009, leaving many farmers scrambling.

And the soybean support in second-quarter GDP data may not last long, according to Shepherdson, who said the economic boost from soybean exports "probably will reverse in full in the third quarter."

The first estimate for third-quarter GDP is scheduled for release on October 26, 11 days before the 2018 midterm elections.

          La cumbre de la OTAN, una cita clave que depende del temperamento de Trump      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
El presidente de EEUU, Donald Trump, en una imagen de archivo.

Si has abierto esta noticia, es que el tema te interesa. Al menos algo. Si no es así, si la has abierto por casualidad, antes de dejar de leerla porque crees que una cumbre de la OTAN no da para mucho, que es una pereza y que no es más que palabrería, te instamos a que mires detenidamente este gif:

Sí, estás viendo bien. Es el presidente de EEUU, Donald Trump, empujando al primer ministro de Montenegro, Dusko Markovic, para situarse en la primera fila de un encuentro de líderes de la OTAN en mayo del año pasado. Y no, no es un montaje: sucedió de verdad. Más allá de lo, llamémosle, gracioso, de semejante momento, dice mucho del tipo de política que impone el presidente de EEUU: impulsiva y basada en su archiconocido lema de "América Primero".

Así que la gran duda que se plantea ante la cumbre de la OTAN que comienza este miércoles es evidente... ¿Entrará Trump empujando otra vez?

De momento lo que ha hecho es tirar de algo más romántico: las cartas. Mediante este canal ha ido recordando a los distintos líderes de los países aliados que quiere dinero, mucho más dinero en defensa. Así, ha vuelto a hacer hincapié en que se acabó esa etapa en la que Estados Unidos asumía la mayor parte de los gastos de defensa internacionales. En España, el nuevo presidente del Gobierno, Pedro Sánchez, también ha recibido una misiva de parte del líder estadounidense en la que le recuerda que su predecesor, Mariano Rajoy, se comprometió a pagar más.

Esta demanda económica no es lo único que temen de Trump los socios de la OTAN. El presidente de EEUU, que llega a la cumbre en medio de una guerra comercial, también viene de abandonar a principios del mes de junio la cumbre del G-7 en Canadá, vetando las conclusiones pactadas por los líderes de las principales potencias democráticas del mundo. Es más, llega a esta cita después de haber insultando públicamente al primer ministro canadiense, Justin Trudeau, a quien ha llamado "deshonesto y débil".

Días más tarde de semejante espectáculo, se ponía una medalla tras estrechar la mano del líder norcoreano Kim Jong-Un. Ahora todos temen que pase algo parecido: que desprecie su cita con la OTAN en Bruselas, para después sacar pecho al verse con el presidente ruso, Vladimir Putin, enemigo declarado de la Alianza, en Helsinki el 16 de julio.

Juntos, pero no revueltos

A Trump, como a Putin, la OTAN no le gusta. Conscientes de ello, el objetivo de los miembros de la organización transatlántica, nacida hace casi 70 años para contrarrestar la influencia de la URSS, es defender su unidad. El presidente no parece dispuesto a ello y, aunque mantiene un tira y afloja con la Alianza, en la cabeza de todos los líderes aún resuenan aquellas declaraciones en las que el presidente de EEUU sentenció que estaba "obsoleta". Por aquel entonces Trump estaba en plena campaña presidencial y llegó a amenazar con retirar la protección de las tropas de su país si los aliados no invertían más en defensa. Con Trump ya de presidente el tono de sus amenazas se redujo, si bien es cierto que en la cumbre del año pasado evitó comprometerse con la cláusula de defensa mutua sobre la que se funda la OTAN.

Voy a decirle a la OTAN: tenéis que empezar a pagar vuestras facturas

Los últimos días ha vuelto al juego que le gusta, el de ir de líder duro: "Voy a decirle a la OTAN: tenéis que empezar a pagar vuestras facturas. Los europeos nos matan en el comercio, nos matan con otras cosas y encima nos matan con la OTAN", ha sentenciado.

Esa misma idea es la que plasmó en las cartas enviadas a los líderes de la Alianza y, en su canal favorito, Twitter, se ha despachado bien a gusto: "EEUU asume el 90% de la factura de la OTAN, pese a que los europeos son los que más se benefician de este paraguas de protección. EEUU gasta mucho más en la OTAN que cualquier otro país. Eso no es justo ni es aceptable". Es el mismo mensaje que, el pasado abril, transmitió en Bruselas de forma igualmente contundente el actual secretario de Estado norteamericano, Mike Pompeo, en su primera visita a la Alianza.

Los miembros de la OTAN se comprometieron en la Cumbre de Cardiff de 2014 a destinar al menos el 2% de su PIB a defensa de cara a 2024, un objetivo que según fuentes diplomáticas citadas por la Agencia Efe sólo conseguirán 15, en el caso de que cumplan con los planes nacionales que presentaron. Sin embargo, las mismas fuentes han recordado que este compromiso no es vinculante, sino que se trata de unas directrices políticas.

La Administración Trump no comparte esta interpretación, de ahí que se espere que este miércoles el presidente llegue a la cumbre exigiendo a sus colegas el cumplimiento sin matices de este objetivo. El presidente norteamericano juega con la baza de que el gasto militar de EEUU representa más de dos tercios del total de la OTAN -por eso dice que no puede ser la "hucha del mundo"-. Y ya hay precedentes del daño que puede hacer a una institución la retirada de fondos de EEUU. Si no, que le pregunten a la Agencia de Naciones Unidas para los Refugiados Palestinos (Unrwa).

No todo es el dinero

Los socios de la Alianza, por regla general, no están muy dispuestos a elevar el presupuesto como les pide el jefe del ejército más poderoso del planeta. No estamos en un periodo de vacas gordas para nadie, invertir en Defensa sigue siendo impopular en muchas sociedades occidentales y, además, no quieren que nadie les dicte el camino, cuando la OTAN puede mejorar con otras aportaciones que no son necesariamente económicas.

El objetivo de los críticos con la ampliación del presupuesto es tratar de convencer a los estadounidenses justo de eso, de que hay que tener en cuenta, billetes aparte, las implicaciones de cada país, su disponibilidad de capacidades militares -despliegue, bases, personal y medios- y la voluntad de utilizarlas en favor de la paz y seguridad internacionales, en las misiones en el extranjero.

En 2017, sólo cuatro de los 29 miembros llegaban a esa cifra mágica del 2% del PIB, aunque en este 2018 se cree que podrían ser ya el doble las potencias las que alcancen el compromiso: EEUU, Reino Unido, Polonia, Rumanía, Grecia, Estonia, Letonia y Lituania. Y no es que a esos países les salga el dinero por las orejas, es que son aliados estrechos de Washington y siempre van a bailar a su son (léase los británicos) o son estados que forzosamente tienen que estar blindados ante lo que hagan sus vecinos más peligrosos, Rusia y Turquía en este caso.

Por el momento, titanes de la defensa europea como Alemania y Francia se han comprometido a llegar, respectivamente, al 1,5% en 2024 y al 2%, pero en 2025. Nada más.

(Puedes seguir leyendo tras el vídeo...).

¿Y España, cómo lo ve?

España está con los que ni por asomo llegarán al 2% ni tienen intención de dar más, y menos con el cambio de inquilino en La Moncloa. Este año, nuestro país es el segundo país de la OTAN con un menor gasto militar, con un 0,93 % de su PIB. La cifra es similar a la de Bélgica y solo la de Luxemburgo es inferior, según las previsiones de inversión en Defensa que ha publicado este martes la Alianza. No obstante el informe, este informe sostiene que nuestro país ha aumentado de un año para otro su gasto militar, ya que en 2017 se llegó al 0,90 %.

La anterior ministra de Defensa, la popular María Dolores de Cospedal, se comprometió por carta a elevar al 1,53 % el gasto español en Defensa para 2024, el año de referencia que pide EEUU, lo que supondría otros18.500 millones de euros. Sin embargo, esa promesa no se encuentra en ninguna ley ni decreto vinculante, no está en la estrategia de seguridad nacional, y por tanto los socialistas ahora en el poder no la toman como necesariamente vinculante.

El pasado 3 de julio, ante el secretario general de la OTAN, Jens Stoltenberg, se visita en Madrid, el presidente Sánchez ya evitó comprometerse con lo que pide Trump. El comunicado remitido por el Gobierno tras la entrevista destaca que España ha desplegado 1.161 efectivos en misiones de la OTAN, 616 con la ONU y 757 con la Unión Europea y que, además, forma parte de la coalición contra el Estado Islámico (EI), en la que 581 españoles colaboran en la formación del ejército iraquí.

De hecho, fuentes gubernamentales citadas por Europa Press han subrayado que la Alianza concede mucha importancia a esta misión de entrenamiento, así como al despliegue de misiles Patriot en la frontera con Turquía. Eso es lo que tratarán de vender tanto Sánchez como su nueva titular de Defensa, Margarita Robles, en la cumbre de Bruselas.

Las consecuencias

"Si Estados Unidos hace de esto un casus belli, pueden pasar muchas cosas", advierte a la agencia AFP una fuente diplomática de un país de la OTAN, para quien lo que diga Trump "será decisivo para el futuro de la Alianza". Los posibles anuncios del inquilino de la Casa Blanca, que preocupan a los aliados, pasan desde una eventual retirada de sus tropas de los países que no cumplen con el objetivo -como Alemania, donde tiene desplegados a cerca de 35.000 soldados-, o su negativa a realizar maniobras militares con esos países, según esta fuente.

Por otro lado, para Tomas Valasek, director del centro de reflexión Carnegie Europe, en el pasado, ya existieron "desacuerdos", como durante la guerra de Irak, "pero nunca hubo ninguna sugerencia en el aire de que Estados Unidos diera la espalda a los aliados europeos". Esto socavaría uno de los principios de la Alianza, consagrado en el Artículo 5 del Tratado de Washington de 1949: la defensa colectiva entre aliados. En casi siete décadas de historia, Washington sólo la activó tras los atentados del 11 de septiembre de 2001.

Y de fondo, una cuestión clave: la actitud de Trump podría ensombrecer las decisiones que deben adoptar los líderes, como la creación de dos nuevos centros de mando en la localidad alemana de Ulm y la estadounidense de Norfolk, la reforma integral de la estructura de mando y control de la Alianza para "adaptarla a los desafíos del siglo XXI", las amenazas híbridas, la ciberseguridad, las noticias falsas o la lucha contra el terrorismo, en cooperación con países esenciales como Jordania y Túnez.

Los 29 líderes deben respaldar además su plan "30-30-30-30", en virtud del cual para 2020 la OTAN debe poder desplegar en 30 días, 30 batallones, 30 escuadrones aéreos y 30 buques de guerra en apoyo a sus fuerzas de respuesta rápida.

Estas decisiones se enmarcan en el plan de la Alianza para reforzarse ante una vecina Rusia más amenazante, desde que en marzo de 2014 anexionara la península ucraniana de Crimea. El presidente ucraniano, Petro Poroshenko, se reunirá el jueves con los líderes de la OTAN.

Consciente de lo que está en juego, el presidente del Consejo Europeo, Donald Tusk, ha instado este martes al presidente de Estados Unidos, Donald Trump a "apreciar" a sus aliados, porque "al fin y al cabo no tiene tantos". "Su país no tendrá un mejor aliado que la Unión Europea", le ha dicho vía Twitter, además de recordarle que ésta gasta "más que Rusia" en Defensa. "Querida América, aprecia a tus aliados, al fin y al cabo no tienes tantos".

Y mientras Putin espera su cita con Trump... disfrutando, seguro, de las divisiones que nacen entre estos históricos aliados; al fin y al cabo él se nutre de las divisiones entre Estados Unidos y Europa y dentro de Europa, como defiende Thomas Carothers, vicepresidente del think tank Carnegie.

          LGBTQ Activists Put Pride Flag On Parade Hidden In Plain Sight - "The Hidden Flag"      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
LGBT activists are parading the banned rainbow flag around Russia during the World Cup by hiding the flag in plain sight

Since Russia has a ban on 'gay propaganda' - which would include even a simple rainbow flag - these LGBTQ activists have undertaken a subversive mission to share the colors of pride.

Calling themselves 'The Hidden Flag,' they are proudly parading our Pride colors around Russia in plain sight.

Clever, kids, clever :)



From the official website:

We have taken advantage of the fact the country is hosting the World Cup at the same time as Pride Month, to denounce their behaviour and take the rainbow flag to the streets of Russia.

Yes, in the plain light of day, in front of the Russian authorities, Russian society and the whole world, we wave the flag with pride.

How? In a way that no one would ever suspect. Football shirts.

Spain, The Netherlands, Brazil, Mexico, Argentina and Colombia. Six countries. Six brave LGBT activists, that together, form the flag that toured around iconic sites in Russia, traveling to every corner to fight against a struggle that will never be silenced.


In a scary moment, one member of the group was detained at the airport as he was leaving Russia. But after 15 hours, he was allowed to continue home.

Mateo Fernandez told Gay Star News, “When we were doing it, I was scared shitless."

But added, “It was completely worth it.”

Head over to the Hidden Flag website for lots more photos.

          Michael Galak The Legacy and Lessons of Barbarossa      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
https://quadrant.org.au/opinion/qed/2018/07/legacy-lessons-barbarossa/ The hallmark and genesis of the Great Patriotic War, as Russians call it, was the political incompetence of the Soviet leadership, their naiveté, paranoia and blind reliance on a Marxist interpretation of world events. Marx is no longer the Kremlin's sacred text, but all else has changed little if at all. June 22, 1941 – its the date which is engraved in memory of all who had a misfortune to be born in the USSR. This was the day Operation Barbarossa began, the Nazi attack on the Soviet Union. By today’s date, July 10, German forces were at Kiev’s doorstep and, behind the rapidly advancing front line, the Wehrmacht and SS were firmly in control. On this day Jews were being massacred in the Polish town of Jedwabne, as they would be in countless other locations. In retrospect, the clash between Hitler and Stalin was inevitable, two predators willing and ready to spill blood generously to achieve their delusional dreams of world dominance. Both required enemies to hate to consolidate their hold on their respective populations. The Nazis were focusing their need for hatred on the Jews. The Soviets were concentrating on the ‘evil’ of the international bourgeoisie. The Soviets adopted pseudo-scientific Marxist theories of class struggle as the basis for the extermination of millions of unwanted souls. The Nazis based their extermination programs on the equally pseudo-scientific theories of race and social Darwinism. Both regimes were quite successful in brainwashing their followers. Both were socialists with insignificant ideological variations. Even flags, songs and holidays were similar. The difference between the Nazis and the Soviets, described as the divide between the evil ‘Right’ and the noble ‘Left’, has always struck me as being contrived and nonsensical. The beginning of the direct war between the USSR and the Nazi Germany was characterized by the extraordinary series of events. The two countries were allies and, following the infamous Molotov-Ribbentrop treaty, which stunned the world at the time, were busily dividing Europe. Hitler was grabbing France, Netherlands, Belgium, Czechoslovakia, Denmark, Greece, Yugoslavia and the Western half of Poland. Stalin, not to be outdone, was getting Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Mongolia, parts of Hungary, Romania and Eastern Poland. Stalin demanded an increase of his share of the European spoils during the Molotov’s visit to Berlin in 1940. Hitler refused and activated the contingency plan of attack on the Soviet Union ‘Barbarossa’ almost immediately after Molotov’s departure. Both countries were planning to attack each other sooner or later.

An augmented reality view of Galileo satellites in the sky close to ESA’s technical centre in the Netherlands. It comes from a Galileo-focused satnav app for Android smartphones, developed by ESA engineers.

ESA ran an internal competition for its trainees to develop an app capable of making positioning fixes using only Galileo satellites.

“As part of our support for the competition, we developed our own app on a voluntary basis to serve as a benchmark,” explains Paolo Crosta of ESA’s Radio Navigation Systems and Technology section. “We included this augmented reality view, so users can ‘see’ the satellites their smartphone is using as they hold it up to the sky.”

The positioning calculations and assistance data functions for the app were developed by Paolo, with telecom engineer Tim Watterton contributing the main structure of the app, together with how it looks and its user interface.

Tim adds: “The satellites are overlaid in real time on the camera view in their predicted positions in the sky, based on ‘ephemeris’ information, assistance data that describes the current satellite orbits with high precision.

“When a signal is being received, the satellite is shown in green, overlaying the predicted position. The satellite shown in red is one of the two placed in elongated orbits, but these satellites are expected to be used soon in the operational constellation. Satellites coloured orange are transmitting, but the signal is not detected, which may be due to obstruction by terrain or buildings.”

Panning the phone around to position the crosshair over a green coloured satellite adds additional information about it, such as its signal status, ‘pseudo-range’ (the uncorrected distance the signal has travelled to reach the receiver) plus the satellite’s manufacturer, launch date among other items.

The reference app is now being tested with the hope of making it publicly available on the Android Play Store. The trainees are also testing their own apps following the competition with the goal of releasing them.

There are 22 Galileo satellites in orbit, with four more satellites set for launch on 25 July.

           Muslim women’s rights are also women’s rights      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

More than 100 Muslim women are calling for a real European model of inclusion and pluralism giving everyone access to employment and education while not placing an extra burden on women.

lead Participants at a conference on 'Islam and Women' at European Parliament headquarters in Brussels, Belgium, November 2017. Wiktor Dabkowski/Press Association. All rights reserved.

Recently, for the first time, the women’s rights committee of the European Parliament discussed the situation of Muslim women in Europe, including dress restrictions and how recent developments have undermined women’s rights. A collective of more than 100 Muslim women are responding by calling for a real European model of inclusion and pluralism that ensures everyone can have access to employment and education and that doesn’t place an extra burden on women.

According to a recent report by the Open Society Justice Initiative, nearly one in three EU member states have placed legal restrictions on Muslim women’s dress at either local or national level. In addition, bans on headscarves and other Muslim women’s dress by both businesses and public institutions have been increasingly reported in nearly half of the EU countries. This has resulted in preventing these women from accessing jobs. How can this be seriously reconciled with EU principles of non-discrimination and gender equality?

However, there is hope for an inclusive Europe as in most countries, proposals for legal bans have been rejected either by legislators or by the courts. This means that there are many people fighting back against attempts to stigmatise and discriminate against Muslim women, including strong civil society campaigns.

This is all the more important as analysis shows that many of these bans on religious dress, although framed as though they apply to all religious groups equally, in fact clearly and visibly target Muslim women. Indeed, restrictions are often adopted after heated debates on Muslim women’s dress and the presence of Muslims in Europe. The ‘neutrality’ argument is used frequently only as an attempt to legally discriminate against Muslim women. In addition, many far-right parties are increasingly pushing for these bans, using Islamophobic discourses.

While neutrality remains a key principle for our societies, we cannot disconnect its current usage and restrictive policies from the context of generalised suspicion against Muslims, the disproportionate impact of these restrictions on women and the structural dimension of exclusion which has an impact on other areas of life and on how society perceives Muslim women.

It is crucial to be politically bold and embrace diversity by ensuring that all can contribute to our societies with their multiple identities. Inclusive and positive approaches need to be chosen over exclusion and limitations on fundamental rights. This will be a powerful way to counter the most xenophobic parties gaining power in several European countries. It is crucial to be politically bold and embrace diversity… a powerful way to counter the most xenophobic parties gaining power in several European countries.

There are already many positive examples of both private and public employers that have made the choice of inclusion and that are increasingly influencing policy and legal developments in different EU countries. We hope countries and private entities which have adopted a restrictive approach will now follow suit.

EU member states should assess the specific effects of rules on religious dress in public and private institutions on Muslim women. They should also ensure that practices and policies promote fully inclusive workplaces, places of education and public spaces, including by rejecting any new proposals to ban religious clothing in employment and institutions. Why has it been so hard so far to choose inclusion over exclusion in support of women’s emancipation?

In the face of the worrying situation of exclusion targeting a specific group of women in Europe, the European Parliament’s discussion supports the broader feminist solidarity with Muslim women that is gaining ground in Europe. At a time when Muslim women are also victims of violent sexist and racist attacks, we need to acknowledge that the structural discrimination they experience is feeding into racism and sexism.

Don't give up on hope.

A daily column on what the ALP have as a policy, supported by a local member, and how it has 'helped' the local community. I'll stop if I cannot identify a policy. Feel free to make suggestions. Contact me on FB, not twitter. I have twitter, but never look at it. 

Gabrielle Williams was appointed Parliamentary Secretary for Carers and Volunteers, working with the Minister for Housing, Disability and Ageing and the Minister for Families and Children. 


As part of the November 24th Vic election campaign I have a petition I want to bring before the Opposition Leader Matthew Guy. I believe Matthew will be the next premier of Victoria and so I am petitioning him as I raise the issues of Employment, Crime and Education in Dandenong. I am also seeking money for my campaign. I don't have party resources, and so my campaign is on foot, and on the internet. Any money I receive that is not spent on the campaign will go to Grow 4 Life. I am asking questions like "What do you love about Dandenong?" and "If you could change something in Dandenong to make it better, what would it be?" I'm not limiting the questions to state issues. I'm happy to discuss anything, and get things done.

I am a decent man and don't care for the abuse given me. I created a video raising awareness of anti police feeling among western communities. I chose the senseless killing of Nicola Cotton, a Louisiana policewoman who joined post Katrina, to highlight the issue. I did this in order to get an income after having been illegally blacklisted from work in NSW for being a whistleblower. I have not done anything wrong. Local council appointees refused to endorse my work, so I did it for free. Youtube's Adsence refused to allow me to profit from their marketing it. Meanwhile, I am hostage to abysmal political leadership and hopeless journalists. My shopfront has opened on Facebook.

Here is a video I made Ballad of Mytzi The Puppy 

The Ballad of Mytzi The Puppy was written as a sequel to 'The Mystery of Webster's Curse.' There was a small opening through which this story might come into being. Master had killed his sister, Mistress, because of the curse. Mytzi was a witness. Mytzi goes seeking justice .. or revenge. It is a tough world for a puppy on its own. This is not about the curse, but about the puppy. It has a beginning, middle and an end.

Some things should not happen, but they do. Malcolm Turnbull shot himself in the foot delivering a speech nearly identical to one he had delivered in Victoria earlier in the year. There was nothing eye opening in the speech. But typical of the frat boy, journalists had been briefed on the speech prior to it being delivered. And they had been told it was going to be a hit at Tony Abbott, and reported that, by claiming the Liberal Party was not a conservative party. So Turnbull had taken his absence overseas to expand a factional battle in his own party. It is understandable Turnbull wants to secure his legacy as PM. That must be the reason for the speech. Some good people would have written it so as to not do what Turnbull did with his frat boy cleverness Miranda Devine would call 'fox like.' Jeff Kennett correctly highlighted the stupidity of it. Abbott had had Turnbull in a broad tent cabinet, Turnbull rejected talent in his cabinet. It was reminiscent of when then Communications Minister Turnbull appeared pictured behind a sandwich board guy with "Abbott you c#nt" written on it. It later turned out Turnbull had paid the guy $50 for the staged photo op. Stupid. Counter productive. Utterly wasteful. Indulgent. How long will the Liberal Party endure such misbehaviour from their party leader? Turnbull sucks oxygen away from good news, like Cormann's negotiated success with Trump's USA over trade impositions on steel. 

In 472, after being besieged in Rome by his own generals, Western Roman Emperor Anthemius was captured in the St. Peter's Basilica and put to death.

He was executed two years later. 1914, Babe Ruth made his debut in Major League Baseball. 1921, former President of the United States William Howard Taft was sworn in as 10th Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, becoming the only person ever to hold both offices. 1924, Eric Liddell won the gold medal in 400m at the 1924 Paris Olympics, after refusing to run in the heats for 100m, his favoured distance, on the Sunday 1930, Australian cricketer Donald Bradman scored a world record 309 runs in one day, on his way to the highest individual Test innings of 334, during a Test match against England

The NSW Government is being criticized for banning greyhound racing. Some argue that animals will die as a result of the decision. Some argue that many will lose money as a result of the decision. But it is hard to tell if the complaints are motivated by concern for the animals or hatred for a decision made by a conservative government. Some have argued that 'only' 20% of the industry have been called corrupt. Were organised crime to have 20% of any industry, I'd want it cleaned up. But Greyhound racing cannot be cleaned up in NSW as not even the regulators know how. Animal lives don't matter. No one would say a thing if the industry produced meat for human consumption. It is terrible for honest people who miss out on their income. No conservative government would lightly close industry. Margaret Thatcher closed coal mining in UK, but only after it became more expensive to mine than the UK received in returns. The problem for those in the industry is that they turned a blind eye to corruption. There is a cost to that. Malcolm Turnbull owns greyhounds. 

For some, at the moment, the Sex Party has more credibility.

He was also motivated by the flag of the Confederates from the Civil War, as have been a large number of bigots and haters through the ages.

Those following Vikings and the story of Ragnar Lodbrok would be interested to know that on this day in 911, his brother, Rollo, signed the Treaty of Saint-Clair-sur-Epte. It meant the creation of the duchy of Normandy and directly led to Rollo being the ancestor of today's Queen. Another signatory was the king of France, called Charles the Simple. The treaty meant Rollo would oppose other Viking assaults on French land. 

China sent a fleet of ships on a journey of discovery on this day in 1405. They would discover America and achieve many great things. But China was very big then too, and viewed herself, correctly, as the centre of world power, and so exploration was not a long term agenda. Europe became great explorers as they tried to find new ways to get to China.

          Leaked U.S. FART Act could be negotiating ploy      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

The White House received a flurry of derision and scorn from across the political spectrum following the revelation by Axios of a possible new bill regarding tariffs. Most of the chuckles (including AP’s analysis) derived from the acronym for the United States Fair and Reciprocal Trade Act, which in congressional practice would become the US FART Act – a rather outlandish and curious name for a proposal which would foist more power on the executive when it came to tariffs.

What’s interesting is the Trump administration’s rather muted response to all of the criticism. It may have been the Independence Day holiday, but the admin isn’t the type to just stand still and take abuse like a donkey in a hailstorm. President Donald Trump himself didn’t really address the issue a week ago, only lamenting the World Trade Organization had been treating the U.S. “very badly for many, many years and that’s why we were at a big disadvantage with the WTO.” He also noted nothing is being planned now, but “if they don’t treat us properly, we will be doing something.”

The only other bit of pushback on whether FART Act was a reality came from Breitbart who reported none of their sources believed “this was a serious piece of legislation,” citing Section 301 of the 1974 Trade Act. It was also suggested some “very junior staffer” wrote the bill – which then ended up in Axios’ hands.

It’s an extremely similar defense given back in January to Breitbart after Axios reported the Administration wanted to nationalize 5G. It was sworn from the high heavens the notion was just an idea, and outdated. Six months later, Trump’s campaign manager openly advocated for nationalized 5G on Twitter. Whether a similar wind of support will happen with FART in a few months is anyone’s guess.

One other theory puts the leak of the proposal as a a red klaxon warning to WTO about America’s future in the group. A bevy of nations – including India, China, and Russia – are disputing the new tariffs before the WTO, so it’s possible the U.S. is trying to get leverage with the organization.

“I think that this is – sort of a shot across the bow at the WTO,” R Street Institute Trade Policy Counsel Clark Packard told me over the phone. “Look, if we lose the steel and aluminum cases, for instance, the president is prepared to just ignore that and potentially just impose tariffs, or whatever.”

Packard also disputed the notion Trump already has power to raise and lower tariffs under Section 301. In an e-mail, Packer wrote that the Statement of Administrative Action for the 1994 Uruguay Round Agreements Act “prohibit the United States from using Section 301 unilaterally to combat practices that are covered by WTO agreements.”

Of course, the U.S. actually has a decent track record at WTO – something Trump is conveniently ignoring for whatever reason – including recent wins in disputes with Indonesia, the EU, and Mexico. There are other American-filed complaints WTO is studying, including one over China’s steel subsidies. Cato’s Dan Ikenson wrote in Forbes last year the U.S. has won 91% of cases it filed against another country before WTO but has also lost 89% of cases filed against them. However, Ikenson noted WTO members don’t file complaints to the organization unless “they are as close as possible to 100% certain that they will prevail if the matter goes all the way through dispute settlement” (emphasis mine).

It’s an important distinction to make, and something WTO opponents fail to reveal in complaints against the organization. It would definitely be better if the U.S. reduced tariffs – and cut the size of the government – to encourage more economic growth. The government isn’t exactly in favor of truly free trade (the U.S. already has a bevy of tariffs in effect before Trump’s latest round), and WTO exists to settle disputes. It’s far from a perfect solution, but it’s still a useful forum and one that has given the US a significant amount of successes.

The other interesting feature of FART Act’s PR is the notion from National Trade Council President Peter Navarro that Democrats would sign onto it. It’s a laughingly pathetic idea since Democrats don’t want to give Trump more power, but it does show how Trump’s White House aligns with Democrats in opposing free trade.

“I think the populist right and populist left are on in the same on economics. It’s nationalistic, it’s xenophobic, it’s protectionist,” Ikenson told me in an interview while also pointing towards the original comments made by the Trump Administration on NAFTA renegotiations. “Wilbur Ross was asked, ‘what changes do you want in NAFTA’ and he just chimed out the left’s line which are, ‘Oh we need to make the labor rules better, and the environmental rules better,’ he’s saying exactly what the Democrats would say.”

It’s also questionable, despite the obvious policy similarities, whether Democrats would even be okay with giving Trump more power over tariffs.

“What incentive would they have to help him get something done in 2018 sort of in anticipation of him running for re-election in 2020?” Packard rhetorically asked of me. “I think that they’re misreading the political tea leaves here and I don’t think that Congress would give them this authority, even Democrats.”

Protectionism is like the saltwater crocodile in Australia. It clamps down on the flesh of its prey and refuses to let go until the unfortunate target is rent asunder and swallowed whole. It’s what’s going to happen to U.S. industries currently subject to tariffs, just over a longer term. Politicians, specifically those who agree with Trump on trade but aren’t in his party, will still do what they can to obfuscate the issue rather than point out the problems.

“You know if you protect the steel industry, in the short run it’s going to do a little bit better, but over the longer run – median term run- you’re going to see the steel industry get hurt,” Ikenson declared when asked how Democrats might respond to the tariffs the support in principle.

“Politicians like to conceal the secondary effects; they just want you to see the first effect,” Ikenson told me. “The Democrats will try to distinguish themselves saying, well yeah we wouldn’t have done [the tariffs] this way.”

Ikenson’s theory is Trump and his allies are trying to use the tariff war to create uncertainty, so businesses won’t move elsewhere. He cites the 1982 tariffs on automobiles which caused the Japanese to move production facilities to the U.S. Yet, much like Galadriel realized in The Lord of the Rings, the world has changed.

“Back then global supply chains were in the nascent stages, today they’re fully out there,” Ikenson pointed out, and revealed the U.S. has seen its share in the global GDP drop from the 1980s to now. “So, uncertainty isn’t going to encourage people to come inside the tariff wall. Uncertainty is going to chase them away because they need to make sure that their supply chains have access to the U.S.”

The Wall Street Journal recently noted cattle, orange, and maple farmers were all going to be negatively affected by the tariffs war with Canada. McClatchy also reported over the weekend California dairy and cattle farmers were going to be hit by tariffs, as well. There’s no real industry looking to move into the U.S. because of the tariffs – without major government backing ala Foxconn in Wisconsin – so the chance of any long-term benefit for Americans is extremely unlikely.

The big question is whether the U.S. government will start propping up industries affected by the tariffs even more, which would basically turn America into some financial mirror of China, instead of vice versa. It’s a dangerous road to go down and one which should be thrown into the dust bin, then the dumpster.

It is unlikely Congress will get any whiff of FART Act inside their halls, which is a very good thing. Yet, it wouldn’t be surprising to see the Trump Administration or the Trump 2020 campaign start pushing this idea of giving the presidency more power over tariffs at some point. The protectionists need to remember the words of esteemed British economist David Ricardo.

“Under a system of perfectly free commerce, each country naturally devotes its capital and labour to such employments as are most beneficial to each,” Ricardo wrote in his 1803 masterpiece On the Principles of Political Economy and Taxation.

“This pursuit of individual advantage is admirably connected with the universal good of the whole,” Ricardo declared. “By stimulating industry, by rewarding ingenuity, and by using most efficaciously the peculiar powers bestowed by nature, it distributes labour most effectively and most economically: while, by increasing the general mass of productions, it diffuses general benefit, and binds together by one common tie of interest and intercourse, the universal society of nations throughout the civilized world. It is this principle which determines that wine shall be made in France and Portugal, that corn shall be grown in America and Poland, and that hardware and other goods shall be manufactured in England.”

It would be wise to heed Ricardo’s advice. The trade war between the U.S. and the rest of the world will not result in long-term growth for the economy, but a disaster which most likely plunge us into a recession, and possibly a depression.

This FART Act, regardless of its seriousness, should be waved away much like one does when their olfactory senses are impugned by someone else’s passing of gas. It’s a bad idea, even as a negotiating ploy, because it will strain relations with other countries instead of breaking down barriers on trade.

French club eye move for Everton man; club should sell - originally posted on Sportslens.com

According to a report published by France Football, Ligue 1 outfit Lille are weighing up a move for Everton goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenberg. The French club believe that the Dutchman could be a good cover option for their first-choice Mike Maignan. Everton should consider letting go of the Dutchman who served as first-choice for Netherlands during the 2010 World Cup. Stekelenberg is well past his prime and cannot deliver the same sort of performances that he delivered during his prime years which was about 8-years ago. The Toffees could certainly benefit from bringing in a keeper that will be able to

           Multraship continues to build on diverse fleet in ultra-competitive market      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Leading towage and salvage specialist Multraship is continuing to build up its marine service provider capacity and rapid response capability with a number of new additions to its varied fleet of vessels.On 7 July, the 453-gt Fire-Fighting tug Multratug 31 was christened at Terneuzen in the Netherlands. The 83-ton bollard-pull vessel was delivered in 2017, and Multraship managing director Leendert Muller says, “We are operating in a highly competitive market, employing all our resources across a wide range of different sectors. Indeed, we have been so busy that even our christenings are a little behindhand.”In April, Multraship acquired a 50-ton bollard-pull ASD tug from a Turkish shipbuilder for its Terneuzen harbour operations. This vessel, which has been named Multratug 9, replaces a 33-ton bollard-pull vessel of the same name which is no longer operational for harbour duties and which will now be put up for sale.Last month, the Fire-Fighting tug Multratug 7 was christened at Terneuzen. The 62-ton bollard-pull vessel was built by Damen in Romania and delivered to Multraship at the end of last year.Two new DSV / salvage craft have also joined the Multraship fleet recently. Multrasalvor 5 (former Sara Maatje VIII) was acquired at the beginning of this year, joining Multrasalvor 4 (former Vos Shelter) which was bought in 2017.There is also a new Multratug 29 in the fleet, with the 2015-built tug of that name having been sold to the Shetland Islands government and replaced recently by a 2018 Damen-built vessel with a higher bollard pull of 86 tons. Meanwhile, the 75-ton bollard-pull AHT /ASD tug Multratug 28 has replaced Multratug 30.Earlier this year, Multraship took delivery of Multratug 32, the first of two game-changing CARROUSEL RAVE TUGs (CRT) Model L which will make it easier, safer and more environmentally friendly to work with seagoing vessels at much higher speeds than those at which conventional tugs can safely operate, and without the risk of capsizing under a tow-load.The contract for the vessels was agreed between Novatug, an innovation arm of the group to which Multraship also belongs, and Damen’s specialist propulsion subsidiary Van der Velden Barkemeyer GmbH in November 2015. German shipyard Theodor Buschmann GmbH in Hamburg assembled the hulls, which were then moved to Stellendam for fitting-out by Damen, which recently delivered Multratug 33, a second, identical CRT for Novatug. Novatug also plans to market smaller versions of the CRT.Multraship and Novatug, meanwhile, have been nominated for the Maritime KVNR Shipping Award 2018 for “their combination of successful realization and implementation with a vision for the future that goes beyond their own company.” The winner of the award will be announced in November this year.Finally, Multraship last month christened two Damen Stan Launch 804s, VB2 and Montis 5. The new launches will be operated by Multraship subsidiaries Montis Mooring Boatservice BV and Verenigde Bootlieden BV and will replace former vessels of the same name which are to be sold to Poland.Leendert Muller says, “The sectors in which Multraship operates are constantly evolving. We cannot afford to stand still. The market is so volatile, and continues to change, giving rise to demand for new and better services. Multraship is committed to investing in order to compete and, where appropriate, to working alongside other competitors in the best interests of its clients. The market is highly competitive, in Europe and the North Sea and elsewhere, and Multraship has positioned itself as a quality marine service provider able to operate across a wide range of sectors, including harbour / terminal and sea towage, salvage, offshore / renewable energy projects and port services. It will continue to invest in quality and safety and will evolve in line with the demands and requirements of its growing customer-base.”

Van Nelle Factory, Rotterdam The Netherlands – Architects: Brinkman and Van der Vlugt – masterplan 1914 – 1923; design 1923 – 1925; execution 1925 - 1931
The Van Nelle Factory is one of the highlights of the Modern Movement in the Netherlands. The impressive glass building is not only an example of functionalism and rational production, but also improved working conditions for workers in the twentieth century. The restored building is now one of the most important monuments of Rotterdam
The Firm Van Nelle was selling coffee, tea, tobacco and snuff in Rotterdam since 1782. The entirely new complex consists of the actual factory building, an office building, a warehouse, expedition and storage depots along the canal, a boiler house and several workshops. A cafeteria and sports fields were also to be found in the area. The factory building consists of three elongated in height sloping parts separated by stairwells. Tobacco has eight, coffee five and tea factory three floors. The staircases house the washing and changing facilities, toilets and lifts, separated for men and women. This allowed for continues factory floors and easily adjustable layouts. By using a concrete frame the non-load bearing facades could be made almost entirely of glass with only thin steel frames. Light and air could penetrate deep into the building. The expedition and storage strip along the water is connected to the main building by overhead conveyor bridges. Another sky bridge connects the plant to the office at the entrance of the complex. The office consists of a strip with two layers of offices and a large open space with glass walls and glass meeting rooms. The office follows the curve in the road. During construction, a tea room on the roof of the tobacco factory was added.
In 1942, low-rise warehouses designed by Brinkman and Van den Broek were realized. In 1974 at the back of the building, a new distribution centre was built. In 1951 other products such as pudding and chewing gum made their entrance. After a takeover by the American Standard Brands in 1989, Van Nelle competitor Sara Lee / Douwe Egberts, sold the complex in 1995, so it could finally get the status of national monument. Using the name Van Nelle Design Factory, the complex started a new life. The factory complex was restored by Wessel de Jonge and Claessens Erdmann. The transparency of the factory floor was maintained as much as possible by the new climate walls on the inside. The new inner facades are made of aluminium and therefore clearly identifiable as new elements. On the floors office spaces of various sizes have been realized for the creative sector. The ground floor is used for exhibitions and conferences. The adjacent buildings have been restored and are used by a number of architectural firms.

Tobacco has eight, coffee five and tea factory three floors. The staircases house the washing and changing facilities, toilets and lifts, separated for men and women. This allowed for continues factory floors and easily adjustable layouts. By using a concrete frame the non-load bearing facades could be made almost entirely of glass with only thin steel frames. Light and air could penetrate deep into the building. The expedition and storage strip along the water is connected to the main building by overhead conveyor bridges. Another sky bridge connects the plant to the office at the entrance of the complex. The office consists of a strip with two layers of offices and a large open space with glass walls and glass meeting rooms. The office follows the curve in the road. During construction, a tea room on the roof of the tobacco factory was added.
In 1942, low-rise warehouses designed by Brinkman and Van den Broek were realized. In 1974 at the back of the building, a new distribution centre was built. In 1951 other products such as pudding and chewing gum made their entrance. After a takeover by the American Standard Brands in 1989, Van Nelle competitor Sara Lee / Douwe Egberts, sold the complex in 1995, so it could finally get the status of national monument. Using the name Van Nelle Design Factory, the complex started a new life. The factory complex was restored by Wessel de Jonge and Claessens Erdmann. The transparency of the factory floor was maintained as much as possible by the new climate walls on the inside. The new inner facades are made of aluminium and therefore clearly identifiable as new elements. On the floors office spaces of various sizes have been realized for the creative sector. The ground floor is used for exhibitions and conferences. The adjacent buildings have been restored and are used by a number of architectural firms.

Hello. I'm out of the Netherlands in São Paulo and my password has been blocked. To unlock I need to inform my new phone and to inform my new phone I need to enter the account .... I called Brazil to the bank and it did not solve. I spoke with several attendants through facebook, giving personal documents and did not solve. I expected a correspondence to arrive from Holland, signed and returned by email. They did not solve anything, now they ask me for something that I do not even know. I'm 63 years old and I do not know how this bank works. I left a power of attorney with my daughter who lives in Rotterdam, and as incredible as she can, she also can not solve it personally. Does old address, new address, passport, bank details, return of letters etc ... are not enough? What is it? I'll need to get on a plane and go I personally solve something so simple? If I had 1 million euros in my account ok, they could find anything but, I have this account because I receive a miserable pension from my former Dutch husband but, I need it. I hope to be taken care of as soon as possible by someone who knows how to solve this situation that has been going on for more than 1 month. thanks Neide

Over on twitter, my timeline yesterday was filled with people collectively hugging each other over Claire Berlinski's Ode to Empire over at DailyBeast.

I encourage everyone to read it then come back.

OK, if your hot-take is, "yes, oh, yes, she is so right," take a deep breath. Walk around a bit. Take another deep breath, then come back. If you raised an eyebrow a few times or rolled your eyes, you're OK.

Now that everyone is back, let's jump in to it.

At first read, I found myself sympathizing with the emotion that Claire brought to her article, but then I started to see a few things that caused my head to tilt a bit and made a note to read it a second time. I'm a NATO guy - I have a great affection for what it has done and hopefully will do. But like anything else you love, you have to love it enough to point out and help it fix its shortcomings.

The second time through the soft-light filter drifted away and the gaps in many of her points broke out in sharp contrast. Here are the ones that had me saying under my breath, "Oh, come on Claire, aren't you being a little overwrought?"

I'm tempted to give the article a full-Fisking, but the paying gig calls and I like Claire too much to do that.
Modern Europe—liberal, democratic Europe—is a creation of the United States.
...
This global order is in many respects an empire—a Pax Americana—but it is far more humane (in Europe, at least) than the European empires that preceded it.
Wait ... Pax Americana outside Europe may not be as humane as the European empires in the New World, Africa, and Asia? Come on, that is a moral-relativistic cheap shot if I've ever seen one, and Eurocentric to a selfish degree at that.
Power is the only coin that matters.
Of course, but let's go back to POLMIL101. The levers of national power are Diplomatic, Informational, Military, and Economic. We are talking about a military alliance, so it is good to focus on the "M" - but American global power and influence is a lot more than military. Having those on our side, our allies, increase their contribution to "M" does not diminish our power at all. If they do that, then we have more leverage in "D," "I," and "E." If they refuse to pull their fair share of "M" - then the support of the American people will further erode when it comes to us filling in the gap they created. When we shrug that burden off, then all D.I.M.E. will collapse for everyone.

The solution isn't for America to shut up and take it like a soyboi, but for people to do their fair share, as good friends and neighbors do.

The mindset is not all that different than the 25-yr old man still living at home because it is cheaper, easier, and lets him spend his money on wine, women, and song as opposed to being a responsible adult and fully contributing member of society.
The collapse of liberal democracy in Europe would represent the failure of our own ideals. The collapse of European security would mean the end of liberal democracy.
If the only thing holding together liberal democracy in Europe are an occupying American Army forever, then frankly the Europeans don't deserve it. If they lack agency of their own to the point they are content to be vassal states of the USA, then fine - they can send their gold reserves and 10% of all their tax revenue to:

COL Patrick N. Kaune, USA
c/o U.S. Army Garrison Fort Knox
125 Sixth Avenue
Bldg. 1110B room 226
Fort Knox, Kentucky 40121
USA

Pat will make sure it is stored appropriately.

If not, then act like a full partner.
Today, neither Europe nor the United States are wealthy or powerful enough, alone, to sustain and expand liberal democracy in a world increasingly dominated by China, Russia, and anarchy. No European country alone, nor any of the American states alone, can maintain the liberal global order. A United Europe, however, and the United States, are together strong enough to sustain and expand the liberal tradition and democratic values. This is precisely why the enemies of liberal democracy are determined to drive a stake through our alliance.
This is correct and good. We are an alliance, kind of a Defenders of The Enlightenment Superfriends. As friends, who are super, one thing we should understand as a baseline requirement; everyone will carry their fair share of the burden. We will all, inside our national ways and means, contribute as individuals and collectively, to support the advancement of civilization though Diplomatic, Informational, Military and Economic means. As good friends do, if someone is not doing their fair share, then others should point that out and motivate that friend to lean in. If that friend refuses, then the rest of the Superfriends are well within their rights to ask if that friend is a friend after all.

The next bit was just sad to read. In addition to being wildly Eurocentric in its understanding of the human record of conflict (Mongolians, Persians, Chinese, Arabs, assorted Inca and Aztec descendants, not to mention modern era Rwandans, Japanese and Cambodians are looking at each other in amazement), it is just dripping with European self-loathing that helps no one.
The wars that broke out in 1939 and 1914 were iterations of the wars fought by Bismarck, Napoleon and Louis XIV—Sedan, 1870; Leipzig, 1813; Jena, 1806; Austerlitz, 1805; Valmy, 1792; Turckheim, 1675. The 20th centuries’ wars were bloodier for only one reason: a massive improvement in killing capability. What would the next iteration of this war look like considering the technology we’ve got now?

Postwar, Europe ceased to be the world’s leading exporter of violence because it was stripped of full sovereignty and subordinated to outside hegemons—first the U.S. and the USSR, then the U.S. alone.
Yes, all true ... but the world cannot and should not be set in aspic and stuck in the 'fridge.

This next bit is a bit over the top;
The benefits of this—to the U.S., Europe, and the world—are not just economic, although those benefits are immense. The benefits are in wars not fought, lives not squandered.

European free-riding isn’t an anomaly or a trick, as many Americans now seem to believe—it’s the central feature of our postwar security strategy. How is it, then, that suddenly, we’ve become consumed with rage that Europe is “taking advantage” of us? How have we forgotten that this is the point of the system? We designed it this way, and did so for overwhelmingly obvious historic reasons learned at incalculable cost.
Just no. At the height of the Cold War, Belgium spent ~3.25% GDP on defense, but was last over the 2% mark in 1992. She is now under 1%. In the same time period, the USA went from 6.3% to 3.1%.

Even today, EST, GRC, and by some measures GBR are all over 2%. Many other nations will be soon. Again, this is not too much to expect for an alliance that shares not just security guarantees, but also responsibilities. To have one, you must shoulder your fair share of the other. No one is asking anyone to spend 3.1%. Just 2/3 of that at a minimum.
The United States underwrites European security through forward engagement and guarantees based on deterrence. In return, its allies accept the United States’ dominant role in the international system. They contribute—significantly, in both money and blood—toward meeting common challenges. Until now, our statesmen have had the good sense to allow all concerned to save face and to describe our relationship as a partnership, with each contributing according to ability. Unfortunately, it seems everyone who understood what this actually meant—European subordination to U.S. hegemony—is dead.
This is an insult to the Europeans. Just by size, we're the big kid in the alliance, but no one is forcing anyone in to this alliance. A demand for fairness is not killing the alliance, it is only asking for a respectful relationship to strengthen the alliance.

Also, I know Trump derangement syndrome is blinding people, but Trump did not invent this concern. I've been on this for two decades, but I'm just a gnat on the natsec rump, listen to General Craddock in 2009, and SECDEF Gates in 2011.

This is not new - we just have a President who is willing to lead with it in the open.

If our slacking NATO partners will simply do the minimum - which isn't too much - then our alliance will be better, stronger, and better able to promote liberal democracy. 

Claire is 180 degrees out from what is going on.
They were wrong. We’re now cheerfully pissing away the greatest achievement of American history, the work of generations, achieved at incalculable cost in life and treasure: a free, united, secure, and prosperous Western world. The 20th century has been forgotten. No one learned a thing from it.
The present state of events is not good for NATO, The West, or any of its alliance partners.

Regular readers here know I get a kick out of the Norwegian series Occupied because it took the warning I gave to my NATO colleagues the first decade of this century, "We are one election away from the USA seriously looking at leaving NATO if you guys don't start spending more on your own defense." and made a series out of it. They refused to understand that there is a strong tradition in the American culture that started with the first English speaking colonies in North America, "He who does not work, does not eat." We will only take slackers for so long - especially entitled slackers.

The nation that needs to get itself in order first is Germany. Regardless of some people's view of Germany, this is 2018. She is a critical and important leader in the family of liberal democracies. Her economy is a powerhouse and her under-investment in her defense undermines deterrence and the ability of NATO to decisively act.

If you care for Germany and NATO, then you need to be as clear and direct as a Dutchman about it. Case in point, Rich Lowry over at NR;
Germany’s defense spending, or lack thereof, is a disgrace. One would think the country would have been embarrassed into following a different trajectory after German troops — Panzergrenadierbataillon 371, to be exact — had to use broomsticks instead of guns in a NATO exercise in 2014. But Germany evidently doesn’t embarrass easily.

NATO countries, after a long vacation from history after the end of the Cold War, agreed at a summit in Wales in 2014 to spend 2 percent of their gross domestic product on defense annually within ten years.

The Baltic states, and anyone in the direct line of fire of Vladimir Putin’s Russia, are scared and spending, although no one will mistake these countries for behemoths. England is above 2 percent, at least in theory (one think tank says that it’s actually 1.6 percent). France is steadily increasing toward the 2 percent target.

It is the biggest economy in Europe and fourth-largest in the world that is the serious laggard. Germany spends all of 1.2 percent of GDP on defense. As Elisabeth Braw points out in Foreign Policy magazine, its military is short on tents and winter clothes. Its aircraft suffer from missing spare parts, and most of its tanks aren’t battle-ready. It has a shortfall of about 20,000 officers and noncommissioned officers. It is promising to get to 1.5 percent GDP . . . by 2025 ...
...
It’s not clear how seriously Germany takes the Russian threat (although it sent some troops to Lithuania last year). Germany has been supportive of the proposed Russian pipeline, Nord Stream 2, that would make Europe more dependent on Russian natural gas and bypass Ukraine. It’s Trump, the alleged tool of Putin, who has been complaining bitterly about the project.

With Putin looming to the East, NATO remains a vital tool of Western power. It’s not an imposition to ask that Germany act like it.
Germany needs to get its act together. It is long overdue.

All is not lost. There is good news about NATO when you want to find it. If you push Germany to the side, you can see that many in the alliance get it.

Today NATO issued its latest report of defense spending. Read it all, but these two graphs tell much of the story about who wants to be an adult, and who is content to live in mom's basement.


Note the nations who are just as the cusp of reaching the 2% mark. BZ to them all. Also note the cluster of shame in the bottom left-hand corner. Those are your free-riders - with Germany right in the center of them. Such lost potential.


As you can see, Latvia, Poland, Lithuania, Romania all are making the stretch. They get it. Other nations showing merit, Bulgaria, Canada, Slovakia, and The Netherlands. More work to do, but they are heading in the right direction.

UK, France, Croatia, Albania, and Belgium.  My dudes. Are you reading any of your intel reports?

Name 'em and shame 'em. A few decades of begging isn't helping - and liberal democracy isn't quite flourishing to the East.


          By the numbers: NATO defense spending      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

President Trump arrives today at the annual NATO summit in Brussels fixated on the fact that most members are falling short of defense spending targets, going so far as to declare that the current state of affairs "just doesn't work" for the U.S.

Data: NATO; Chart: Andrew Witherspoon/Axios

The bigger picture: Trump isn't the first president to push Europe on defense spending, but the 2% figure only tells part of the story.


By the numbers...

  • 29 countries across Europe, the U.S. and Canada comprise the NATO alliance. 12 original members joined in 1949, and Montenegro became the newest member last year.
  • 62,635 U.S. troops were based in Europe as of 2016, with about half of those in Germany and Italy and the U.K. also hosting large numbers.
  • On the agenda for this week: The "readiness initiative" that would, per CSIS, "ensure NATO has 30 battalions, 30 combat vessels, and 30 air squadrons ready within 30 days.

The spending picture...

  • 1.45% of GDP, across all non-U.S. NATO members, is invested in defense.
  • 5 members (rounding up for Poland) met the 2% threshold last year. 3 more plan to by year’s end, and 15 have presented plans to get to 2% by the 2024 deadline.
  • 72% of all defense spending among NATO members comes from the U.S. The next biggest spenders — the U.K., France and Germany — together spend 20% of the U.S. total.
  • 11 of the 29 members spend the targeted 20% of their military budget on equipment (rather than, say, military pensions), while several countries — like Slovenia and Belgium — fall far short.

Approval of NATO...

  • 62% of Americans have a favorable view of NATO, per Pew. That’s right at the median among member states.
  • 78% of Democrats have a favorable view, up from 58% in 2016. 47% of Republicans approve.
  • 79% in Poland and the Netherlands have favorable views, the highest rate. The lowest approval comes in Turkey (23%) and Greece (27%).

The Russia question...

  • 60+% in Greece, Italy, Germany, Spain and the U.K. say they’d expect the U.S. to use military force if Russia got into serious military conflict with a NATO ally, per Pew, while less than 50% (and just 25% in Greece) say they’d expect their country’s military to take part. Those numbers are more balanced in France, Canada and Poland.
  • 28 of 29 members reduced trade with Russia between 2012 and 2016 amid a series of sanctions, per CSIS. The exception is Croatia.
  • 22 of 29 NATO members have increased defense spending since 2014, when Russia’s annexation of Crimea spurred increased urgency among members. One exception: the U.S.

Go deeper: Despite Trump’s attacks on NATO members, U.S. support also down.


          Executive Leadership Academy 2018, Jul 9-13      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The Executive Leadership Academy (ELA) is designed for individuals from all backgrounds who are interested in preparing themselves for appointments to executive positions such as dean, vice president, provost, president, and chancellor. It offers a five-day intensive training experience and is guided by a select faculty team, comprised of over 25 senior-level higher education executives.

The sessions focus on 28 Executive Leadership Skills that are essential to serving as successful higher education administrators, with topics on shifts in higher education and higher education leadership, changing funding sources and expectations, new requisite multicultural competencies, risk management, governing board relations, fundraising, and many more. This Academy will prepare current and future leaders to appreciate the multicultural and global dynamics of higher education by promoting key critical thinking skills, leadership, and strategic planning for higher education officials.

Since ELA was founded in 2011, 272 fellows have graduated from the program. The fellows of ELA derive from diverse institutions: public and private universities, businesses, non-profits, and other types of institutions. In addition, nearly 10% of our graduated Fellows came from international backgrounds, hailing from countries such as Saudi Arabia, South Africa, the Netherlands, Zimbabwe, and many more. The results are exceedingly positive: many ELA graduates have advanced to positions such as deans, provosts, chancellors, and presidents, applauding ELA as a program “on the cutting edge of critical issues facing higher education.”

I am the itinerary planner in our family. I enjoy the process and anticipation. It has been a lot of fun planning our trip to the Netherlands these last few months. It was a place I never thought of visiting, so the pleasure of discovery was even greater.

          Here's what it's like to eat at McDonald's in 7 countries around the world (MCD)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

mcdonalds japan

  • McDonald's has thousands of locations all around the world. 
  • We asked six of our international colleagues — in Singapore, Japan, India, Sweden, and the Netherlands — to visit a McDonald's location near them.
  • They found that the chain catered to local tastes with regional variations on popular items like mayonnaise-flavored French fries and coconut pies.
  • While some were surprised by the quality of McDonald's regional items, others were disappointed. We also tried one of the new items featured at US locations of McDonald's. 

 

With over 36,000 locations in more than 100 countries, McDonald's is one of the most recognizable brands in the world. While it made its name with staples like the Big Mac and Quarter Pounder, the chain tailors its menu to local tastes, which means that a McDonald's in India will look very different from one in the United States.

After trying one of McDonald's newest items in the United States, we asked some of our international colleagues in six different countries — Singapore, Japan, India, Sweden, the Netherlands, and the UK — to go to a McDonald's near them and tell us about the experience. We found that each catered to regional tastes with variations on the chain's traditional offerings that surprised us.

See what our colleagues had to say below.

Singapore

Who would've thought that our quintessential local dish, Nasi Lemak, could actually be turned into a burger?

Commonly eaten for breakfast, Nasi Lemak is a fragrant rice dish cooked in coconut milk, and it's usually accompanied with a range of side dishes such as fried egg, cucumber, ikan bilis and most importantly – some spicy sambal chilli.

So imagine our doubt when we heard about McDonald's new item.

What could be better than our regular McChicken sandwich and iced Milo?

 

 



We purchased the bundle set ($9), which comprises the Nasi Lemak burger (of course), coconut pie, Bandung McFizz and French fries, which can be upsized to the criss-cut fries option.

Juicy coconut-flavored chicken patty? Check. Fried egg? Check. Cucumber slices? Check. Caramelized onions? Check. Oh, and all these were served between semolina buns – not the basic sesame seed burger buns.

The verdict for just this burger alone? We’re absolutely digging it.

We went into the test filled with skepticism. Little did we expect to be mind-blown by how the burger could taste just like a dish of, well, Nasi Lemak. Consider us sold.

 



Most of us at the taste test enjoyed coconut-flavored desserts, except for one. But this coconut pie might have changed her perspective on all coconut-y sweets.

The coconut filling was warm and silky-smooth — so good that it managed to win over a non-fan of coconut-flavored food.

http://jumpingjackflashhypothesis.blogspot.com/2012/02/jumping-jack-flash-hypothesis-its-gas.html


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



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

Quote: "Dean Batey with Duck River Electric was working to repair a security light on a power line pole outside Manchester when the lift bucket he was in caught fire. 'He basically jumped from the bucket to keep from getting burned up. And we think the jump is what killed him? Yes,' said Smith."

Quote: "Batey fell about 15 feet. Duck River Electric president and CEO Michael Watson said Batey did not make contact with the power lines."

Quote: "For now, investigators simply do not know what sparked the blaze. 'I've never heard of this type of incident. The first fatality ever in the company,' said Watson."

          Ranked! The 10 most incredible World Cup own goals      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Own goals were once something of a rarity at the World Cup. Just 41 were scored in the history of the tournament, before this summer took the total up to 52. Howeverundoubtedly the most spectacular have come in the previous 88 years. From diving headers to acrobatic volleys, here’s a jaw-dropping countdown.10. Daniel Agger (Denmark vsNetherlands, 2010)Simon Poulsen produced one of the most remarkable defensive clearances of 2010 when he hooked Ibrahim Afellay’s toe-poke off the line with an under the crossbar overhead kick. Unfortunately for the Dane, he was also responsible for the tournament’s freakiest own goal in the same game.The left-back, who was plying his trade with AZ Alkmaar at the time, had tried to head clear a Dutch cross, only to knock it onto the back of unsuspecting team-mate Daniel Agger and into the net. Despite not knowing anything about it, the unlucky Agger was later credited with the own goal by a harsh FIFA panel. 9. Noel Valladares (Honduras vsFrance, 2014)Famous for sending an increasingly baffled Jonathan Pearce into near-meltdown, Noel Valladares’ entirely avoidable own goal caused FIFA to rethink how their goalline technology worked. The BBC’s most excitable commentator, and the Honduras players themselves, initially believed that a disputed French third had been disallowed when the system’s big screen flashed ‘no goal’.But the message was referring to the first incident in which Karim Benzema’s strike bounced off the post. A second message then revealed that the Honduras keeper had palmed the resulting deflection into his own net by at least an inch, and France rightfully went 3-0 ahead.8. Colin Curran (Australia vsEast Germany, 1974)One of the few members of Australia’s 1974 squad to have been born in the country, Colin Curran also holds the distinction of scoring his homeland’s first ever World Cup goal. Unfortunately it just happened to be at the wrong end. The defender looked destined to become a national hero when he raced to clear East German Jurgen Sparwasser’s deft strike off the line.But instead, the ex-Manchester United youth player became the villain when he embarrassingly blasted the ball into the net. But Curran later atoned for his error, guiding Australia to their first World Cup point with a powerhouse display in a goalless draw against Chile.7. Ernst Lortscher (Switzerland vsGermany, 1938)(Own goal at 0:20)Ernst Lortscher wasn’t the first player to score an own goal at the World Cup – that dubious honour went to Mexico’s Manuel Rosas against Chile eight years earlier. But unfortunately for the Switzerland international, he was the first to have his filmed for posterity.The hapless midfielder virtually side-footed the ball into his own net while attempting to clear a well-struck German effort which had just hit the post. Thankfully for Lortscher, the blunder appeared to spur his side into action and the Swiss bounced back from 2-0 down to win the first-round replay 4-2.6. Ivan Vutsov (Bulgaria vsPortugal, 1966)Alongside Spain and Mexico, Bulgaria have scored more World Cup own goals than any other nation. Incredibly, two of their three came at the same tournament stage, 1966’s Group 3, and both were pretty special in their own way.Defender Ivan Vutsov was the first player to net at the wrong Old Trafford end when he flung himself at a relatively innocuous cross by Portuguese forward Jose Torres, resulting in the kind of spectacular diving header that Robin van Persie would be proud of.Vutsov’s ill-timed aerial prowess set Portugal on their way to a 3-1 win and ultimately a third-place finish, and practically ended Bulgaria’s World Cup campaign by the seventh minute of their second game. 5. Ivan Davidov (Bulgaria vsHungary, 1966)Whereas Bulgaria’s first own goal at 1966 was almost a thing of beauty, their second was pure comedy. Rudolf Vytlacil’s men had given hot favourites Hungary a scare in their final group game when Georgi Asparuhov put them in front after in 15 minutes. But their joy proved to be short-lived when just before half-time a tenacious Hungarian attack produced a curious ball across the six-yard box.Ivan Davidov and Ivan Vutsov (him again) almost bumped into each other as they attempted to clear it, before the former, under little pressure, instead curled the ball past bewildered keeper Simeon Simeonov.4. Andranik Eskandarian (Iran vsScotland, 1978)After a disastrous opening defeat to Peru, the Scots were expected to bounce back easily against World Cup debutants Iran. Instead, they suffered what the press deemed the most humiliating result in their history. It could have been even worse, had the Iranians not gifted them with a farcical own goal shortly before the break.Asa Hartford’s speculative cross into the penalty area should have been handled comfortably by the Iranian defence, but the presence of Joe Jordan pressured keeper Nasser Hejazi and centre-back Andranik Eskandarian into a collision before the latter swung the ball wildly into his own net. However, Eskandarian soon made amends by masterminding Iran’s comeback, and later even secured a deal with the legendary New York Cosmos. 3. Cristian Zaccardo (Italy vsUSA, 2006)Gianluigi Buffon conceded just one goal through open play during Italy’s triumphant World Cup run in 2006, and that was from one of his own team-mates. Cristian Zaccardo was the guilty culprit, having spectacularly sliced a free-kick from the United States’ Bobby Convey into the Italian net with his knee. Not that the centre-back is particularly cut up about it.In a 2016 interview with Football Italia, Zaccardo admitted that he and Buffon used to enjoy some epic bants about the whole incident, and that he would happily continue scoring own goals if it meant he got to lift another major trophy.2. John Boye (Ghana vsPortugal, 2014)(Own goal at 0:52)John Boye could have been auditioning for the Cirque du Soleil as he attempted to clear Miguel Veloso’s teasing cross during Ghana’s first-round encounter against Portugal. Indeed, the defender scored possibly the most acrobatic own goal in World Cup history when he somehow struck an overhead volley past helpless keeper Fatau Dauda.Asamoah Gyan nearly spared his blushes with a Ghana equaliser but Cristiano Ronaldo ensured they soon returned with a late winner. Boye’s theatrics came just days after he accidentally kicked USA’s Clint Dempsey in the face, breaking his nose in the process.1. Jeff Agoos (USA vsPortugal, 2002)When it comes to breathtaking volleys at the wrong end of the pitch, USA’s Jeff Agoos wins hands down. The unlucky defender gifted Portugal a lifeline in their opening 2002 encounter when he sent Pauleta’s cross rocketing into the top left-hand corner, although his side did manage to hold onto a 3-2 victory in the end.It was just another nightmare chapter in Agoos’ World Cup career, having previously burned his shirt in protest at missing out at 1994 and spent the entirety of 1998 as a substitute, while a calf injury later caused him to miss USA’s quarter-final against Germany.New features you'd love on FourFourTwo.com

http://jumpingjackflashhypothesis.blogspot.com/2012/02/jumping-jack-flash-hypothesis-its-gas.html


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



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

           Contract signing with Arriva Netherlands       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Stadler has sealed a deal with Arriva Netherlands to maintain and service 18 WINK trains and 51 GTW trains, which will rely heavily on battery technology and boast enviable environmental credentials. They will operate in the Noordelijke Lijnen concession in Friesland and Groningen and are managed by Arriva. The contract, starting in 2020 and running till 2035, builds on the 15-year service and maintenance contract already in place since 2006. Today’s signing follows the announcement in November 2017 that Stadler will manufacture 18 new WINKs and refurbish 51 GTW.Hein van der Schoot, Managing Director of Stadler Service for the Netherlands and UK, commented: ‘We are thrilled to be awarded this contract. It sees Stadler blazing a trail within the industry for cutting edge, green technology and is testament to our commitment to mitigating the effects of climate change. We are also proud to continue the long term partnership with Arriva Netherlands, which has already proved successful for many years and resulted in excellent passenger satisfaction.’Anne Hettinga, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Arriva Nederland, also emphasizes the importance of the new contract: 'The cooperation between Arriva and Stadler is an economic driver for the northern part of The Netherlands. This contract is a big step in the preparation for the new concession. We look forward to working together for 15 more years. We apply our innovative approach to developing new trains as well as service and maintenance.'WINK propelled by Bio-diesel and batteriesThe new WINK trains will run on the renewable fuel Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO) as well as battery power. HVO is a renewable fuel (second generation bio-diesel), which is made of vegetable oil and fat waste, such as frying fat. By 2025, the Leeuwarden-Groningen route will be partially electrified. From then on, on the non-electrified parts the WINKs will only use the stored energy in the batteries. The use of (bio-)diesel will no longer be required. GTW with comprehensive overhaulIn 2020, the GTW trains will receive a comprehensive overhaul. They will be renovated inside and out and be converted to battery operation, bringing emissions down and making them far greener than previously. More jobs in LeeuwardenIn preparation for the new fleet, Stadler will expand the depot at Leeuwarden. In order to accommodate the new trains to be serviced and maintained, a third track will be added and a number of additional mechanics will be hired.

          Here's what it's like to eat at McDonald's in 7 countries around the world (MCD)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

mcdonalds japan

  • McDonald's has thousands of locations all around the world. 
  • We asked six of our international colleagues — in Singapore, Japan, India, Sweden, and the Netherlands — to visit a McDonald's location near them.
  • They found that the chain catered to local tastes with regional variations on popular items like mayonnaise-flavored French fries and coconut pies.
  • While some were surprised by the quality of McDonald's regional items, others were disappointed. We also tried one of the new items featured at US locations of McDonald's. 

 

With over 36,000 locations in more than 100 countries, McDonald's is one of the most recognizable brands in the world. While it made its name with staples like the Big Mac and Quarter Pounder, the chain tailors its menu to local tastes, which means that a McDonald's in India will look very different from one in the United States.

After trying one of McDonald's newest items in the United States, we asked some of our international colleagues in six different countries — Singapore, Japan, India, Sweden, the Netherlands, and the UK — to go to a McDonald's near them and tell us about the experience. We found that each catered to regional tastes with variations on the chain's traditional offerings that surprised us.

See what our colleagues had to say below.

Singapore

Who would've thought that our quintessential local dish, Nasi Lemak, could actually be turned into a burger?

Commonly eaten for breakfast, Nasi Lemak is a fragrant rice dish cooked in coconut milk, and it's usually accompanied with a range of side dishes such as fried egg, cucumber, ikan bilis and most importantly – some spicy sambal chilli.

So imagine our doubt when we heard about McDonald's new item.

What could be better than our regular McChicken sandwich and iced Milo?

 

 



We purchased the bundle set ($9), which comprises the Nasi Lemak burger (of course), coconut pie, Bandung McFizz and French fries, which can be upsized to the criss-cut fries option.

Juicy coconut-flavored chicken patty? Check. Fried egg? Check. Cucumber slices? Check. Caramelized onions? Check. Oh, and all these were served between semolina buns – not the basic sesame seed burger buns.

The verdict for just this burger alone? We’re absolutely digging it.

We went into the test filled with skepticism. Little did we expect to be mind-blown by how the burger could taste just like a dish of, well, Nasi Lemak. Consider us sold.

 



Most of us at the taste test enjoyed coconut-flavored desserts, except for one. But this coconut pie might have changed her perspective on all coconut-y sweets.

The coconut filling was warm and silky-smooth — so good that it managed to win over a non-fan of coconut-flavored food.

I had the chance to be invited again to speak at TechDays in Belgium (Antwerp) and in the Netherlands (The Hague), and delivered 3 sessions (one of them twice) to an audience of developers. It was as usual a very wonderful experience in two very well organized events. I also had the chance to speak to a number of great speakers such as Jeff Prosise, Ben Riga, Beth Massi, Iris Classon, Rich Griffin and many more who, in the past years spent travelling and speaking at various events around the world, have become really good friends. Meeting these old friends and talking to a lot of new people at conferences is really enriching and brings me a lot of joy. That is the real value of community in what we do, discovering new technologies together and sharing that knowledge.
