          Comment on How to whip cream: tips for perfecting dessert's favorite topping by Lyn Bailey      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
I do not have the recipe to hand, but one of my son's favorite things is a 'salad' made with the tub stuff, cottage cheese, pineapple chunks, orange and pineapple jello, and mandarin orange sections. He was living in Sweden where there is no tub stuff, so I brought over the jello and some plain gelatin. You dissolve, using heat, the gelatin in some water and then beat it into the whipped cream, Worked extremely well, the 'salad' was a great success and tasted a lot better than the tub stuff. I simply don't remember the amount of gelatin and water per cup of heavy cream.

          Migrants fuelled EU population increase by 1MILLION as Luxembourg and Sweden have some of the biggest swells      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Daily Mail [UK], by David Churchill Posted By: Attercliffe- Tue, 10 33 2018 10:33:17 GMT Migration fuelled a population increase of more than 1million across the EU last year, with Britain seeing the sixth largest relative increase. The rise in numbers across the bloc came despite there being more deaths than births, a report revealed yesterday. The figures show there were around 513.6million people living in the EU’s 28 member states on January 1 this year, compared with 512.5million on the same day last year – a rise of 1.1million. During 2017, there were 5.3million deaths recorded, compared with 5.1million births, meaning the increase was down to net migration, according to the report compiled by Eurostat, the EU

          These are the 15 best airports in the world      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache

  • Skytrax released its annual list of the best airports in the world at the Passenger Terminal Expo in Stockholm, Sweden.
  • Singapore's Changi International Airport took the top spot for the sixth year in a row.
  • Airports from Asia swept the top five spots.
  • No US airport placed in the top 25.

The consumer-aviation website Skytrax held its annual World Airport Awards ceremony in March at the Passenger Terminal Expo in Stockholm, Sweden.

For the sixth consecutive year, Singapore Changi International Airport took home the crown as the world's best airport. The facility is one of Southeast Asia's largest transit hubs and is a major cog in the city-state's bustling economy.

Changi Airport is world-renowned for its beautiful architecture, efficient operation, luxurious amenities, and plentiful dining and shopping options. 

Airports from Asia dominated the top of the Skytrax rankings, sweeping the first five spots. European airports also performed well, with four in the top 10. Only one North American airport made it into the top 15. No US Airports made it into the top 25 with Denver International being the highest-ranked at 29. 

Africa and South America were also not represented in the top 15. Cape Town International in South Africa is the highest ranked African airport at 21. South America's first representative doesn't show up until Bogota, Colombia's El Dorado International Airport at 46 followed closely by Mariscal Sucre International Airport in Quito, Ecuador at 47. 

The Skytrax annual rankings are based on the impressions of nearly 14 million flyers from over 100 countries. More than 550 airports were included in the survey, which covers 39 service and performance parameters, including facility comfort, the location of bathrooms, and the language skills of the airport staff.

Here's a closer look at the other airports that made it to the top of the prestigious Skytrax list:

15. Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport (TPE)

Yearly passengers: 34 million

Previous rank: 21

Why it's awesome: Located just outside of the Taiwanese capital of Taipei, Taoyuan International is the largest airport in Taiwan. The airport is the home base for both China Airlines and EVA Air.

Skytrax reviewers praised the airport for its polite service, clean environment, and speedy immigration lines. Taoyuan was also once home to Taiwan's aviation museum, but the museum was shut down earlier this year to make way for further airport expansion.

14. Vancouver International Airport (YVR)

Yearly passengers: 24.2 million

Previous rank: 13

Why it's great: Vancouver takes home the prize as the top-ranked airport in North America for the eighth year in a row, and for good reason. Customer reviewers on Skytrax cited YVR's friendly staff, high level of organization, and easy access to downtown Vancouver as some of the best things about the airport.

Vancouver International also boasts a floatplane terminal, as well as a sizable collection of art from the Pacific Northwest.

13. Kansai International Airport (KIX)

Yearly passengers: 25.2 million

Previous rank: 12

Why it's awesome: Located on an artificial island in the Osaka Bay, Kansai International is a major hub for ANA and Japan Airlines.

Reviewers on Skytrax praised Kansai for its modern architecture, clean facilities, and helpful staff. The airport also boasts a Sky View observation deck that affords passengers spectacular views of incoming and outgoing flights.

Life Lately has been....interesting. 
There has been good, bad & ugly.
When the Summer first started a month ago, I definitely didn't think I would be having skin cancer removed from my nose which would slightly alter my summer plans. But, life must go on and even though this Summer hasn't gone as completely as planned, we are still having fun and I am still trying to make the most of it.

So, here is a sneak peak of our Life Lately.

We are checking things off our Summer List:
We made Strawberry Jam.
Every Summer, my mother in law make a year supply of Strawberry Jam. We have been doing this for the past 15 years! I love this tradition. You can see our recipe HERE.

We went on a Road Trip to Oregon & the Oregon Coast....blogging this SOON!!!! It was so fun & so beautiful. Promise to blog it by next week :)

The kids and I headed to Lake Tahoe.
Our trip got cut short because I had to come back early for my surgery, but it was still good to getaway to my happy place for a few days.

Then I had my skin caner surgery....you can read more about it HERE.
I am not going to lie...having skin cancer removed from my nose has been more traumatic than I thought it would be. I was not prepared for the size of the hole on my nose. Yes, there are thousands of things worse than having to wear a bandage on your nose for 4-6 weeks, but I didn't realize how self conscious I would be of it. It's been 10 days since surgery and I am snapping out of my funk, it's just getting some used to.

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade...or wear your favorite lemon pj’s while reading a book about Lemon Pie.
 Lemon Pajamas {HERE} and Luck, Love & Lemon Pie Book {HERE}
I guess I’m in a lemon-y mood.
 I heard about this author last month and read  2 other books by her, loved them both (Coincidence of Coconut Cake and The Simplicity of Cider
They are all Perfect summer reads that have a sweet story line and all involve food of some kind.

I've spent a majority of the past 10 days in pj's either reading or cleaning and working on my 40 Bags in 40 Days Project! Look how many things I've crossed off this Summer!

 I even added 2 more items....the fridge & freezer. Totally cleaned those out.
All I have left is the kids closet and our Guest Room/Office.
I can't tell you how good it feels to GET RID OF STUFF!!!!!!!!
Look at my closet..I got rid of so many clothes (and shoes!)
 
 It feels like a huge weight has been lifted, getting everything so organized.
I have donated over 30 bags to the Goodwill and I have thrown away probably 15 bags of stuff.
Everything in my house has a place now, so it makes keeping it clean so much easier.
Let's see how long this can last.
I am hoping to get the Guest Room & Office done this week.
The kids closets will be a little tricky because I their help with it and they aren't too excited about that task :)

Because I've stayed home so much the past 10 days, I also got caught up on blogging our Universal/Harry Potter World Trip (Read about that HERE) and then I blogged Part 2 of that trip which was Disney for 2 days (Read about that HERE)

The day after my surgery Kevin texted me and said he got me a present to cheer me up (we never exchange presents..not even for Christmas or birthdays, we would rather do experiences, so I had no idea what he got me) Imagine my shock and excitement when he came home from work with this!?! And 2 wireless controllers  Apparently, the day after my surgery was the re-release day and Kevin was able to get one for me. 
I had been trying to buy one of these for over 1.5 years. 
Fact: When they first came out in November 2016, I set an alarm on my phone to buy one but they sold out. For the next 2 months, I kept that alarm on my phone and every day for 2 months I called Game Stop, Target and Best Buy to see if they had been restocked. I wasn’t willing to pay $$$ on eBay. I gave up hope.
My favorites are Balloon Fight, Excitebike & Mario. Next up, Kid Icarous & Dr. Mario

 4th of July was 6 days post surgery...it's one of my favorite days of the year. For the past 10 years we have gone to our friends house for breakfast & their big party before the parade, but they are getting a pool put in their backyard so no party this years. So, I  signed up for a local 4th of July race.
I haven’t consistently run in the past few weeks because of traveling & skin cancer surgery, but I still wanted to make sure I got my July race in since I am doing a race every month until I turn 40 in May. Originally planned on the 10k, but after the crazy few weeks switched to the 5k. It’s a local 4th of July Run.
Felt good for my soul to get out there and run again, but man that hurt!
 When I got home, Kate had made 4th of July waffles for all of us!

So creative...she even put white sprinkles in the blue to make it look like stars.

We rode our bikes downtown to the parade. 
Who doesn't love a small town parade?

 Then, we got home and watched the Hot Dog Eating contest. Joey Chesnut won by eating 74 hot dogs in 10 minutes...So gross, but we watch it every year.

We got ready to have friends over for a 4th of July Pool Party & BBQ. 

 I made my Corn Dip....YUM!
 
We usually have a 4th of July Party, but because of my surgery we decided not to have one because we didn't know how I would be feeling, so we were going to meet our friends at the Pool for the party.
 
The day before I told everyone to come here for the party instead.

Filling my house with family & friends is the best medicine.

 It was great...8 adults & 11 kids.
 The kids swam, the adults hung out and we had hamburgers & hot dogs for dinner. My friend Annie made this gorgeous berry trifle.
 We even got to see a few fireworks that someone in our neighborhood illegally set off.
 It was such a fun day!
Last Saturday was the first one in forever when we haven’t had any plans at all. 
Woke up early to watch my people (England) beat Kevin’s people (Sweden) 
Well, at least we think he’s Swedish, waiting for his 23 & Me results.
I made my light & fluffy pancakes & also had bacon, fruit, coffee and mimosas. 
These pancakes are the best. So light & fluffy.

We also watched Russia vs Croatia & the kids swam all day.

 Kevin set up the "slide".
 2 years ago when we took down the play structure, Kevin saved the slide and made it into a pool slide. It's been on our side yard for over a year and the kids begged him to put it up again.
 I sat in the shade and devoured this book!!! 
I LOVE Elin Hildebrand and this was one of my favorite books of hers.
I could not put it down!

Grilled Tri Tip for dinner, had fresh corn & my Caprese Orzo Salad.
I always cut the corn off my corn on the cob....easier to eat & doesn't get stuck in my teeth :)
It was pretty close to the perfect Summer Saturday.


Like I mentioned last week, my Rodan + Field team is having Christmas in July Specials every week this month!
Today until July 18th, the Special is if you buy a Regimen/Travel Regimen Special, you get $20 cash back, a FREE cosmetic bag and a FREE mini eye cream!

Canute IV (c. 1042 – 10 July 1086), later known as Canute the Holy (Danish: Knud IV den Hellige) or Saint Canute (Sankt Knud), was King of Denmark from 1080 until 1086. Canute was an ambitious king who sought to strengthen the Danish monarchy, devotedly supported the Roman Catholic Church, and had designs on the English throne. Slain by rebels in 1086, he was the first Danish king to be canonized. He was recognized by the Roman Catholic Church as patron saint of Denmark in 1101.

Switzerland retained its crown as the world’s most innovative country for the eighth year in a row, according to the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) – the global intellectual property agency. Switzerland came top of the innovation list ahead of the Netherlands, Sweden, Britain, Singapore, the United States, Finland, Denmark, Germany and Ireland.  Rankings were not just determined by the number of trademarks filed, a category in which Switzerland has traditional strength. Innovation was measured by 80 factors in total, such as mobile-application creation, education spending and scientific and technical publications. This year, the indicators included for the first time prowess at green technologies, an innovation that has gained in importance in global terms. The WIPO ranking of 126 countries is just one of numerous global surveys that generally feature Switzerland in top spot or among the leaders at innovation.

          Pro-gov’t journalist says jailed Gulenists should be forced to commit suicide      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Pro-government journalist and writer Fazıl Duygun has called on authorities to force people jailed over their links to the Gulen movement to commit suicide.

“FETO supporters should be forced in an appropriate way to commit suicide. Because these vile people do not seem to behave sensibly unless they die,” he tweeted on March 26.

Duygun’s Twitter account was suspended later in the day but he has said he is going to continue tweeting via another handle.

Turkish government blames the Gulen movement and calls it FETO, short for the alleged Fethullahist Terror Group.

The movement denies involvement in the coup and any terror activities.

More than 160,000 people have passed through police custody, of which 60,000 were remanded in prison pending trial over Gulen links since the summer of 2016.

According to a 2017 report by the Sweden-based monitoring group Stockholm Freedom Center (SCF), at least 53 people killed themselves both in and outside of prisons in what it calls suspicious suicides, in the aftermath of the July 15, 2016 failed coup.

The relatives of most of them claim that the detainees are not the kind of people to commit suicide, shedding doubt on the official narrative. Rumors also have it that some of the detainees were killed after being subjected to torture under custody.

          The Latest: Pogba dedicates France win to freed Thai players      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

MOSCOW — The Latest on Tuesday at the World Cup (all times local):

12:15 a.m.

Paul Pogba has paused after the biggest win of his international career to dedicate it to the Thai soccer team whose last members were freed from a flooded cave hours earlier.

The France midfielder took to Twitter shortly after France beat Belgium late Tuesday to advance to the World Cup final. He posted the boys' photos and said the victory "goes to the heroes of the day, well done boys, you are so strong."

The last of the 12 boys and their coach were freed earlier in the day from a cave where they had been trapped for more than two weeks.

FIFA had invited the team to the World Cup final on Sunday but the governing body announced the boys wouldn't be able to attend since they are receiving medical treatment after their ordeal.

11:15 p.m.

Paris has erupted in firecrackers, flares and shouts and tears of joy after France advanced to the World Cup final.

Red smoke rose up from flares fired by fans on the Right Bank esplanade outside City Hall, where crowds watched a broadcast of the 1-0 victory over Belgium on huge screens Tuesday night.

Fans poured onto streets around the city, from the chic Champs-Elysees to working-class neighborhoods on the edge of town. Firecrackers popped in quick succession, punctuated by car horns and football chants and "On est en finale!" or "we're in the final!"

Some streets were closed to car traffic to accommodate fans. Police vans lined the busiest areas in a city still on guard after extremist attacks.

France will face the winner of Wednesday's semifinal between England and Croatia in the World Cup decider in Moscow on Sunday. The French public, celebrities and politicians have rallied around the national team as it advanced.

Samuel Umititi scored the only goal in the semifinal with a header in the 51st minute at the St. Petersburg stadium in Russia.

Umititi says "We worked really hard together, and it's me that scored but we all delivered a big game."

His live TV interview was interrupted by teammate Antoine Griezmann, who saluted to the camera and said: "Vive la France! Vive la Republique!"

10:55 p.m.

France has reached the World Cup final for the first time since 2006 with a 1-0 win over Belgium in a semifinal match that attracted presidents, royalty and a rock star.

Samuel Umtiti's header in the 51st minute was the only goal in a tense match at St. Petersburg.

France, the 1998 champions and runners-up in '06, will play either Croatia or England in Sunday's final at Moscow. England and Croatia will meet Wednesday in Moscow in the second semifinal.

France President Emmanuel Macron and King Philippe of Belgium shook hands in the VIP section before the match. Mick Jagger was also on the official list of guests.

10:15 p.m.

What came first, the chicken or the goal?

Harry Kane, Dele Alli were among the England players who played a game of toss the rubber chicken at training, a day ahead of a World Cup semifinal against Croatia.

Why?

"That's exactly what I asked our fitness coaches around here," England coach Gareth Southgate said. "Our physical performance coaches try to keep refreshing the warmups of the players and keep them stimulated. Just a bit of fun to get them moving, and some of the mobility exercises."

10:09 p.m.

Samuel Umtiti has headed France into a 1-0 lead against Belgium in the World Cup semifinals.

Umtiti rose brilliantly to head in Antoine Griezmann's corner from the right in the 51st minute, for his first goal of the tournament.

Striker Olivier Giroud won the corner after turning Belgian defender Vincent Kompany, forcing him to put his goal-bound shot out of play.

The winner in St. Petersburg plays Croatia or England in Sunday's final.

9:46 p.m.

It's 0-0 at halftime in the World Cup semifinal despite Belgium and France going close to scoring in the first half.

With France's soccer-loving President Emmanuel Macron and Belgian King Philippe watching from the stands, France sat back and hoped to hit Belgium on the counterattack.

Belgium used the space to put France under pressure around the 20-minute mark with Eden Hazard firing a curling shot from the left that Raphael Varane headed over the bar. Hugo Lloris was twice called into action to save France.

The France goalkeeper first punched away a cross by Kevin De Bruyne aimed at Marouane Fellaini and moments later dived to his right to block a shot by Toby Alderweireld.

French teenager Kylian Mbappe's pace was a constant threat on the right and his pass in the 40th minute set up Benjamin Pavard but Belgian keeper Thibaut Courtois stuck out a left leg to deflect the shot wide.

9:10 p.m.

Mick Jagger is on FIFA's list of VIP guests at the World Cup semifinal between France and Belgium in St. Petersburg.

The Rolling Stones singer completed the band's world tour on Sunday in Poland.

On stage in Warsaw, Jagger fulfilled a request by former Polish president Lech Walesa by drawing attention to an authoritarian government policy to remove independent judges.

Among the political leaders joining Jagger in the crowd as official are Hungary's Prime Minister Viktor Orban and Ali Bongo Ondimba, the President of Gabon.

9 p.m.

The World Cup semifinal between France and Belgium has kicked off at St. Petersburg Stadium, with France President Emmanuel Macron and King Philippe of Belgium in attendance.

France coach Didier Deschamps warmly hugged Thierry Henry moments before the start. Henry is France's all-time leading scorer with 51 goals, but is now an assistant to Belgium coach Robert Martinez. Henry also greeted players on France's bench.

The winner between France and Belgium will meet Croatia or England in Sunday's final.

France was European Championship runner-up two years ago and is aiming to reach its fourth major final this century. Les Bleus won Euro 2000 and lost the 2006 World Cup final.

Belgium is hoping to reach only the second major final, having lost the European final to West Germany in 1980. Belgium lost its only previous World Cup semifinal to an Argentina in '86.

8:50 p.m.

France President Emmanuel Macron is attending the World Cup semifinal between France and Belgium at St. Petersburg Stadium. Macron shook hands with King Philippe of Belgium, who was with his wife Queen Mathilde.

Macron and King Philippe shook hands warmly and Macron patted him on the chest.

Macron is an avid soccer fan and supports southern French club Marseille.

8:10 p.m.

Mexico went home from the World Cup more than a week ago, and while its fans are still scattered around Russia, some of them have lost enough interest in the matches that they're selling tickets at face value.

Several fans wearing Mexico's green jerseys approached a larger group of Belgians at a beer garden in St. Petersburg offering seats at "FIFA prices" for the World Cup semifinal. They didn't immediately find any takers among the festive Europeans, who apparently already were set for the Belgium-France match.

Mexican and South American fans came to Russia in huge numbers despite having to travel far greater distances than Europeans. They're still everywhere in the semifinal cities of St. Petersburg and Moscow even though only teams still alive are from Europe.

7:55 p.m.

Belgium coach Roberto Martinez has picked Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Mousa Dembele to replace Thomas Meunier for the World Cup semifinal against France.

Martinez has been forced to reshuffle his back line after Paris Saint-Germain wing back Meunier was suspended for the match in St. Petersburg after picking up his second yellow card of the tournament in Belgium's 2-1 quarterfinal win over Brazil.

After using a four-man defense against Brazil, Martinez has reverted to a three-man backline and four-man midfield of Nacer Chadli on the left, Dembele on the right, and Marouane Fellaini and Axel Witsel in the middle.

Eden Hazard, Romelu Lukaku and Kevin De Bruyne make up a potent three-man attack.

Dembele's inclusion was the only change to the Belgium team that beat Brazil 2-1 in the quarterfinals.

Lineup: Thibaut Courtois, Toby Alderweireld, Vincent Kompany, Jan Vertonghen, Axel Witsel, Kevin De Bruyne, Marouane Fellaini, Romelu Lukaku, Eden Hazard, Mousa Dembele, Nacer Chadli.

7:45 p.m.

France coach Didier Deschamps has recalled Blaise Matuidi in the only change to his lineup for the World Cup semifinal against Belgium at St. Petersburg Stadium.

Matuidi, who was suspended for the 2-0 quarterfinal win over Uruguay last Friday, comes into midfield to replace Corentin Tolisso.

Veteran striker Olivier Giroud hasn't scored yet in the tournament but needs one goal to move ahead of Zinedine Zidane into outright fourth spot on France's all-time list. Giroud keeps his place in a forward line featuring 19-year-old sensation Kylian Mbappe and Antoine Griezmann.

France: Hugo Lloris, Benjamin Pavard, Raphael Varane, Samuel Umtiti, Paul Pogba, Antoine Griezmann, Olivier Giroud, Kylian Mbappe, N'Golo Kante, Blaise Matuidi, Lucas Hernandez.

The British government says motorways are expected to have one-third less traffic than normal when England takes on Croatia in the World Cup semifinals.

Highways England says traffic analysis on each of the England match days to date showed that during the games demand reduced by up to 33 percent.

The agency said in a statement that roads were not busier than normal before or after games, "suggesting people are often choosing not to travel or to travel at completely different times."

Frank Bird, one of Highways England's emergency planning officers, says "along with the rest of the country, we'll be cheering on England! We want them to bring it home - and we want everyone on our roads to get home safely."

Thousands more England fans are expected to descend on Moscow for their first World Cup semifinal in 28 years, but there's not much sign of them yet.

The Nikolskaya street near the Kremlin, elaborately decorated with hanging lights, has been the main gathering point for fans in the Russian capital.

There were no more than a few dozen England fans there as of late Tuesday afternoon, with those singing team songs heavily outnumbered by passers-by filming them on phones.

Still, Kevin Miles of the Football Supporters Federation expects between 5,000 and 7,000 fans for Wednesday's semifinal against Croatia, but admits "a lot of people are doing it last minute, so it's very difficult to put numbers on it."

Airlines have offered extra places on flights to Moscow and some Russians have sold their tickets after their team lost to Croatia. Still, Miles says high prices "have put a lot of people off" who were thinking of traveling at short notice.

England manager Gareth Southgate has been surprised at the vest craze back home, where "Waistcoast Wednesday" is trending.

Stores have been pushing waistcoat sales as England advanced to a World Cup semifinal match against Croatia in Moscow on Wednesday, with people taken by Southgate's style of wearing a vest without his suit jacket,

Southgate says "I was not a renowned fashion icon throughout my playing career, so it's rather strange to feel that way now. But we are really proud of the support that we are receiving."

England has reached the semifinals at the World Cup for the first time since 1990, and confidence among supporters is growing that the national team will win the title for the first time since 1966.

Southgate says, "We've had the chance to make a difference. Our supporters, our country has had a long time of suffering in terms of football, and the enthusiasm they have for these players, because of the way they've — not only the way they've played, but the way they're conducted themselves, they've been brilliant ambassadors for our country, and I think everybody can see that they're proud to wear the shirt."

FOX Sports says it will be simulcasting the World Cup semifinal between France and Belgium on Silvercast's high-definition screen known as "Mega-Zilla" in New York's Times Square.

Soccer fans in the United States have watched the World Cup in Russia on big screens around the country, but this is promoted as the biggest of them all.

The "Mega-Zilla," a 78-foot-by-330-foot (24x100-meter) screen being promoted as the largest TV screen in the world, will be located between 45th and 46th Street on Broadway in Manhattan.

France and Belgium will be playing for a spot in Sunday's final in Moscow.

FIFA says players from the youth soccer team rescued from a cave in Thailand will not be able to attend the World Cup final.

The sport's world governing body says it has been informed by Thai authorities that the 12 boys and their coach "will not be in a position to travel" for health reasons.

FIFA expressed its "great joy" at the rescue and says its "priority remains the health of everyone involved in the operation."

FIFA leaders will meet with Thai soccer officials this weekend in Moscow to explore "a new opportunity" to invite the boys to a major event to celebrate their survival.

The last four of the boys and the team coach were rescued Tuesday from a flooded cave in far northern Thailand after an ordeal that lasted more than two weeks.

FIFA expressed "profound gratitude to all persons involved in the rescue operation," and condolences for the family of the diver who died.

They're getting the World Cup croissants ready in Paris.

Paris, Russia, that is.

The village of Paris just outside the Russian city of Nizhny Novgorod is embracing its French links ahead of the World Cup semifinal match between France and Belgium.

The village cafe is decorated with images of the Eiffel Tower and is preparing croissants for the game, plus a Russian menu for any French guests who might happen to drop by.

Mayor Sergei Gromov says "we were supporting Russia but now it's turned out like that (that Russia was eliminated), we're going to support France and wish it success."

The village's full name is In Memory Of The Paris Commune, a reference to a socialist rebellion in 19th-century France. The name is so unwieldy most locals use Paris for short. Not everyone in Paris is pro-France, though. Villager Elena Vasilyeva says she's cheering on Belgium because "they're a real team."

3 p.m.

The Ukraine Football Federation has offered to pay a fine imposed on a Croatia official for making a pro-Ukraine video at the World Cup.

Soccer's international governing body has fined Ognjen Vukojevic 15,000 Swiss francs ($15,150) for "unsporting behavior" after he and Croatia defender Domagoj Vida recorded a video including the phrase "glory to Ukraine" after the team beat host nation Russia in the World Cup quarterfinals.

The video angered some Russian fans, but was welcomed in Ukraine, where both Vida and Vukojevic formerly played for the Dynamo Kiev club. Russia annexed the Crimean peninsula from Ukraine in 2014 and political tensions remain high.

UFF president Andriy Pavelko, wearing a Croatia shirt and scarf, tells Ukrainian broadcaster 112 that he and other members of the UFF management offered to pay the fine and help Vukojevic with legal costs if he wants to appeal the ruling.

The Croatia soccer federation has already removed Vukojevic from its World Cup delegation. Vida was let off with an official warning and no match sanction, leaving him available to play in Wednesday's World Cup semifinal against England.

1 p.m.

The World Cup semifinal stage is beginning with the all-European lineup being celebrated by soccer's governing body on the continent.

Belgium and France play in St. Petersburg on Tuesday and then Croatia and England meet the following night in Moscow.

It is the fifth time the last four has featured only European teams.

UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin says "even though some of our traditional contenders such as Germany, Spain and Portugal were eliminated, there are other teams which have surpassed expectations and can now win the title."

In a statement to The Associated Press, Ceferin added "these results validate all the work that is being done across the continent to develop football, and they also showcase the strength and quality that exists across the whole UEFA region."

          Coach of England wins the nation's heart by being a nice guy      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

LONDON — In an age of tattoos, tongue piercings and tensions over Brexit, a soft-spoken man in a dark blue waistcoat and striped tie is uniting England amid dreams of victory in soccer's World Cup.

Coach Gareth Southgate is the buttoned-down leader of a new generation of players who speak softly and let their victories silence critics. And England supporters have found that refreshing after years of underperforming teams led by stars such as David Beckham, who became as much a celebrity as an athlete.

"He's very much about a team spirit. It's more about the collective — you can see it in the way he deals with the squad," said Paul Willis, who was in the stands last Saturday in Samara, Russia, when England reached the semifinals with a 2-0 victory over Sweden. "We had superstars, but we didn't have a team."

Southgate's focus on teamwork and civility has made him an unlikely icon in a country that is deeply divided by bitter arguments over plans to leave the European Union and a widening gap between rich and poor. England Captain Harry Kane may be the tournament's leading scorer, but fans are donning waistcoats and ties — even as the country enjoys an unusually hot summer — in homage to Southgate as pundits extol the 47-year-old coach's calm leadership.

"He has shown us the value of courtesy, kindness, hard work and that most derided of virtues, niceness," columnist India Knight wrote in the Sunday Times. "He has redefined not just how to be a manager, but how to be a man."

Southgate displayed his character after England's July 3 victory over Colombia, offering a supportive hug to Colombian player Mateus Uribe after his miss in a penalty shootout helped England advance. The England coach understood Uribe's agony, having missed a similar shot at the 1996 European championships. The moment of empathy also reminded the country how Southgate once lampooned his own failure with a Pizza Hut commercial in which he wore a bag over his head to shield his identity from angry fans.

Southgate's compassion sparked a hashtag for the coach's real and imagined acts of kindness such as "#GarethSouthgateWould stop and help you put the chain back on your bike even if he was all dressed in his waistcoat and late for the game."

Southgate became manager less than two years ago after the Football Association's first choice was forced out after unguarded comments to undercover reporters. Since then he has quietly ushered out the last of the old stars and brought together a group of youngsters who modestly shrug off compliments and give kudos to their teammates.

Perhaps more importantly, he recognized the contribution of the fans, something that had been eroded during the superstar era. After every game, Southgate and his players walk across the field to applaud the supporters who have traveled to Russia to cheer for the team.

"We had lost a bit of connection," Willis, a 57-year-old fan from Birmingham, said of past regimes. "That is now back. All the team and the back room applaud our input to the game."

That has also translated into huge support back home in football-mad England.

At least 20 million people, 38 percent of England's population, watched Saturday's victory over Sweden, according to figures from the BBC. Commentators say the actual number was much higher because so many people watched the game on huge screens in parks and shopping centers.

London authorities are inviting 30,000 fans to the city's Hyde Park for a screening of Wednesday's semifinal against Croatia. Fearing demand will far exceed that, authorities stressed that only those with tickets should come to the park. Ticket services reported hundreds of people were trying to dump theater tickets for Wednesday because they had more pressing business elsewhere.

Social media sites are urging fans to wear waistcoats — please don't call them vests — to the office ahead of the big match — a "Waistcoat Wednesday" if you will. Marks & Spencer, the official tailor to the England team, says sales of the grandfatherly garments have doubled during the World Cup.

Rio Ferdinand, one of the previous "golden generation" of players who is now a commentator for the BBC, has been leading the cheers for this year's team, asking fans to post video of their beer-throwing, chest-bearing, flag-waving celebrations after the win over Sweden.

On Sunday, Ferdinand tweeted his own mea culpa for past failures, while also highlighting Southgate's unique contribution.

"Why weren't the golden generation... the golden generation???" he tweeted. "We as players look at ourselves first...we never performed....but sometimes you have to be allowed to perform! Gareth is allowing this current @England to do this."

That's paying off.

Kane, who turns 25 later this month, has scored six goals in the tournament. Dele Alli, 22, came back from injury to score the team's second goal against Sweden. Fabian Delph, 28, played the last 15 minutes of Saturday's game after missing the previous game against Colombia because Southgate allowed him to go home for the birth of his third child.

Southgate himself recognizes the contributions of everyone, from the physiotherapists to the players who push their teammates in practice but rarely get into a game, even to fans back home.

"Our country has been through some difficult moments recently in terms of its unity, and I think sport has the power to do that and football in particular has the power to do that," he said. "So for us, we can feel the energy and we can feel the support from home, and that's, that's a very special feeling. It's a privilege."

Barring that, it does help to have a snappy waistcoat.

"Quite frankly, I don't care what he wears," Willis said. "He can wear a tutu if we carry on winning."

          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

          Germany makes Mesut Ozil the scapegoat for World Cup exit      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

BERLIN — Same coach, same team manager, same president.

And yet after almost two weeks of reflection, the German soccer federation (DFB) appears to have decided midfielder Mesut Ozil is the main culprit for the team's shock early World Cup exit.

Team manager Oliver Bierhoff wondered in a newspaper interview if Ozil should even have been taken to the tournament in Russia, while DFB president Reinhard Grindel followed up by demanding the player provide an "answer."

Joachim Loew has not commented on the matter since deciding to stay on as coach.

Ozil, long a key player for Loew, has been in the firing line since he and national teammate Ilkay Gundogan posed for photos with Turkey President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in May. Both German-born players have Turkish roots.

While Gundogan attempted to distance himself from the incident in Britain, Ozil has maintained his silence - antagonizing the same people who said the issue had been dealt with before the World Cup.

"Only DFB officials can come up with the idea that a photo with Erdogan is responsible for a defeat against the football-giants of South Korea," North Rhine-Westphalia minister president Armin Laschet said on Twitter.

Following Germany's first-round exit, Bierhoff told newspaper Die Welt it might have been better to omit Ozil from the tournament. Bierhoff pulled back after criticism, saying it was a misunderstanding and he did not intend to single out any player for the team's failure.

But Grindel kept the issue alive, telling the latest edition of Kicker magazine: "It's true that Mesut has not commented yet. That has disappointed a lot of fans because they have questions and expect an answer. They are right to expect this answer. That's why it's totally clear for me that Mesut should speak on the issue."

Grindel has received just as much criticism as Bierhoff did. The Berliner Zeitung newspaper accused the DFB president of "throwing oil on the fire to shine a good light on himself."

The DFB itself arguably made the Erdogan-photo affair worse with its public admonishment of Gundogan and Ozil. Grindel was scathing in his criticism of the players, who were summoned for talks.

Now Grindel says, "We have to wait for the sporting analysis and see whether Joachim Loew still counts on him."

Ozil has been one of Germany's standout players since starring at the 2010 World Cup. His performances earned a switch from Schalke to Real Madrid. He has made 92 appearances for Germany, contributing 23 goals from midfield.

Ozil was not the only player to underperform in Russia, where defending champion Germany was knocked out after defeats to Mexico and South Korea. But his performances have come under the most scrutiny because of the Erdogan photos and because of his own high profile within the team.

"He and Gundogan suffered from what happened before the World Cup because they have been vindicated in Germany," Ozil's former Arsenal coach, Arsene Wenger, told Bein Sports.

Gundogan and Ozil were whistled by German fans during matches, while both have been subjected to abuse off the pitch, too.

German comedian Oliver Pocher impersonated Ozil with large fake eyes, saying he was going "home" on vacation and listing off the Turkish cities he was going to visit before returning.

Far-right politicians have been slating the player, while journalist Claus Strunz said "Mesut Ozil does not belong to Germany" after noting he does not sing the German anthem.

"No DFB official has condemned the racist comments against Ozil," the Schwaebische Zeitung newspaper said.

Ozil's father, Mustafa, told the Bild tabloid that Bierhoff's statements were "an affront. In my opinion they only serve to save one's own skin."

Mustafa Ozil, who fell out with his son in 2013, suggested a racial motive for the attacks.

"Unfortunately there are still people in the German population who have reservations and prejudices against us of Turkish descent," he said.

"In Mesut's place I'd resign (from the Germany team). But that's just my personal opinion."

          Interview of Harris-Clichy Peterson by Brian Shoemaker      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Interview of Harris-Clichy Peterson by Brian Shoemaker Peterson, Harris-Clichy Col. Peterson was a participant in the expedition to Antarctica, 1946-47, led by Finn Ronne. Born in Boston to a mother from Uzbekistan and a father from Sweden, he was privileged to enjoy an outstanding education at prestigious Boston Latin School, and briefly attended Harvard before joining the Marine Corps at age seventeen during WWII. He saw combat duty, won a Silver Star, and, as a radar officer, developed impressive technological skills. He was a Second Lieutenant at the time of his discharge. After WWII, Peterson returned to Harvard. As an undergraduate student he found part-time employment with Roche Metallurgical Laboratory making high temperature thermocouples, and he perfected certain technical skills that would be beneficial in his later career. He graduated from Harvard with a B.S. in Physics. After his trip to Antarctica, Peterson graduated from Harvard Business School in 1950. Still a Reserve Office in the Marine Corps, he was called back to active duty for the Korean War. He served for two and one-half years in Korea, and saw a lot of combat. Once that war ended he worked as an investment banker with Kidder-Peabody. This led to a position for many years in Peru with the W.R. Grace Company. His wife is Peruvian and their children were raised there. He spoke favorably of the former President of Peru, Alberto Fujimora, and candidly about economic problems facing Peru today, especially those of the Indian population. At the time of the interview Peterson had left Peru, although he still maintained a house there, and he was working for an unnamed company in Boston. He has also done consulting work in Saudi Arabia. In late 1945 Peterson joined the Ronne expedition. He was personally interviewed by Ronne, whom he remembers as a remarkably physically fit man, a good entrepreneur, and one who knew how to conceive, organize, staff, and get funded innovative new projects. Peterson concedes that Ronne wasn’t perfect but he was able to get things done that Ph.D’s and M.D.’s could likely not accomplish. Departure was delayed briefly when a Beechcraft C-46 aircraft, outfitted with expensive trimetrigon photography equipment, crashed and was destroyed when the hoisting apparatus for the ship failed. Fortunately General Curtis LeMay moved quickly to find a new, acceptable, similarly equipped aircraft, and had it flown to the expedition enroute. There were also two other aircraft, both single-engine. Before departure for Antarctica in early 1946, Peterson obtained contracts for his own scientific research, one from the Franklin Institute for cosmic radiation research, and another from General Electric to seed clouds with iodine to make precipitation. The City of Beaumont, an ocean-going tugboat of about 1500 tons, was lent by the Navy. Once underway, Peterson was called on to fix the electrical rudder control system of the ship, as well as the steering, radar, and other equipment. While passing through the Panama Canal the ship crashed into shore because of a failure in the steering system. It was Peterson who figured out how to fix it. A sad problem was that enroute many of the sled dogs died of dysentery; new dogs had to be obtained in Chile. The ship stopped in Peru and Chile. In Valparaiso two women, Jenny Darlington and Edith Ronne (wife of Finn) joined the expedition. There was some grumbling, and a few strong complaints, from some of the men about women participants. Several sailors got into minor trouble with the police on shore. The Chilean, Jorge Georges de Giorgio, joined the expedition in Valparaiso. The last stop in South America was Punta Arenas, Chile, on the Strait of Magellan. The Drake Passage was “horrendous” with 40 to 45 crest waves. Winds howled at 60 to 70 miles per hour. But once they approached the Antarctic Peninsula the weather calmed, but then they had to watch out for icebergs. Their destination was East Base and Stonington Island in Marguerite Bay. The base was quickly set up, which was fortunate since winter came upon them quickly. Unfortunately, parts of the base had been ransacked earlier by Argentines, and so many repairs were necessary. The British had a base nearby, a fact which Ronne resented since he thought their presence threatened the prestige or uniqueness of his own expedition. There was little cooperation or contact with the British. The British stayed close to their base, did little research, and seemed most interested in planting their flag in case a territorial claim might later be made. One well known member of the British party was Bernie Stonehouse, a meteorologist, and an authority on penguins, and known today as the “grand old man of the Antarctic.” Once in Antarctica, Peterson set about to discharge his scientific duties. He measured solar and cosmic radiation, and atmospheric refraction. He used a heliometer to measure the heat of the sun. His chief responsibility was meteorology. He was not directly involved with the photography, specifically the trimetrigon camera work, but reported that it was handled well, and that the Air Force obtained excellent photographs. Other men got the three planes up and running, and all were well settled in their quarters before the full force of winter hit. Coal, and also kerosene, was used for heating. CITCO, the Venezuelan owned petroleum company, provided much of the fuel needed. The sled dogs were always kept outside unless they were sick. They were all chained to a line, and as the dogs slept the snow would drift up around them. They would stick their noses up through the snow, and this provided the dogs a kind of insulation. When put on a sled the dogs seemed to enjoy the experience. Peterson said that dogs were superior to tractors since if you hit a crevasse you could take the dog team apart and carry them one by one over the crevasse. Dog teams would be flown into advance areas. If this were along the coast a seal might be killed to feed the dogs. Once, Peterson and Bob Dodson spent several weeks alone some 6,000 to 7,000 feet up on the Plateau. They went to make meteorological observations, and carried an anemometer and other equipment. The weather was terrible, and so they could not be resupplied by airplane. When conditions became untenable, and supplies ran low, the two men started to walk back to East Base some 20 to 40 miles away. They walked in total darkness since it was in the middle of the Antarctic winter night. “No problem,” or so they thought. “We had good compasses.” The men decided – contrary to the usual practice -- not to rope themselves together since they feared that if one fell into a crevasse he would pull the other down with him. Their decision would soon be severely tested. Peterson fell into a deep crevasse, possibly 130 feet down. He was knocked out and wedged solidly in the ice. Dodson marked the site carefully with trail flags, took exact compass readings, and returned to base to organize a rescue operation. After two days he was found and rescued. Dr. Butson, a British surgeon, the smallest man on either base, was lowed into the crevasse and miraculously freed Peterson. Peterson suffered severe frostbite, but had no broken bones, and after several months of bed rest he finally recovered. Once Peterson recovered, he participated in spring fieldwork. The New York Times had given the expedition an early version of a facsimile, or fax, machine. By use of a rhombic antenna Peterson used the machine to send weather maps and personal messages every day to New Orleans. He was also deeply involved in map making and trimetrigon photography. Typically this work involved the Weddell Sea, the Antarctic Peninsula, and the Ronne Ice Shelf. Much, if not most, of the exploration of these sites was done by air. By using air drops of fuel tanks planes could venture as much as 1000 miles from East Base. Sometimes geologists, such as Nichols, would be dropped off by plane to make observations on land, at times with a dog team. Peterson said it was possible, but not certain, that this was the first time in Antarctica that dog teams had ever been dropped off by air. This would have been an historic event. (In later years snowmobiles were used to pull the dog sleds.) In the summer Peterson was involved in measuring solar radiation, which didn’t exist in the winter. Usually this could be done at the base. He lacked any equipment to measure ultraviolet radiation. All measurements had to be manually recorded by pencil on paper. He never wrote a verbal text of his scientific work, nor did he keep a diary. He reports that he may have been the first person to make cosmic radiation measurements in Antarctica. There was never any attempt made to take ionospheric measurements. Weather balloons were launched four times a day, every six hours. Hydrogen was made from tanks. Regular reports were sent to the New York Times, one of the sponsors of the expedition. Edith “Jackie” Ronne usually wrote these up, and Kelsey, the radioman, would send them out by Morse code. Occasionally radio contact could be made with a family member back home with the cooperation of a radio amateur. Peterson was unmarried at the time. The pilots for the expedition were Darlington, Lassiter, and Adams. The two-engine aircraft was a Beechcraft C-46. There was also a single-engine plane. Darlington’s wife, Jenny, assisted in generating publicity for the expedition. Peterson remembers her fondly as a cheerful, pleasant, and helpful person. The members of the Ronne Expedition finished their duties by the end of the summer of 1947. The base was boarded up, a key given (presumably) to the British Expedition nearby, and with the help of the icebreakers Edisto and Burton Island, the men (and two women) boarded the ship to leave. Their year’s work had been completed. Once the ship reached Punta Arenas Jenny Darlington, who was pregnant, left the party so that her child could be safely delivered. The ship continued on to New York. After writing their reports the men were free to go their separate ways. In later years the only member of the expedition Peterson continued to see was Bob Dodson. Looking back on his trip to Antarctica Peterson considered it a “wonderful experience.” He was very loyal to Finn Ronne although he acknowledged some of his foibles. He saw Ronne as a strong leader, as a man who could get things done. Ike Schlossback was Ronne’s second in command. Peterson remembers him as fair-minded, and of sound intellect and judgment, but also as one who was reluctant to exert authority. Consequently Ronne didn’t really have anyone to assist him who could function as an Executive Officer. Peterson’s experience with the Ronne expedition proved invaluable in later life. It helped him to see that in any group there would likely be some troublemakers who would defy authority, and Peterson learned how to conduct himself effectively in such a situation. On balance Finn Ronne did things right. The mission was accomplished, everybody got home safe. There was no loss of life, no permanent injury, and no equipment lost.

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.”

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

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

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

          Comment on Pop World Cup 2018 Group F Match 1 by jeff w      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
I missed the match (work got in the way), but watching on 'catch up' I'd have voted for Sweden and Korea - that probably wouldn't have changed the outcome? I did like the Mexico song though, especially the cheap synths, so happy to see them get 2 points. That said, FIPA needs to step in and show some yellow cards for all these players removing their kits in their videos.
          Machine House's New Pub Is Serving Seattle’s Most Understated Beer      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Machine House Brewing, Seattle's best purveyor of traditional cask ales, opened a new pub in the Central District. They're open for all the World Cup games. by Lester Black

Machine Houses new pub has two televisions for your soccer viewing pleasure.
Machine House's new pub has two televisions for your soccer viewing pleasure. Lester Black

This past Saturday I was at a pub before 8 a.m. watching the World Cup, which is weird because I couldn't care less about soccer. So, what made me wake up at such an ungodly hour on the weekend?

Something far more important than sports: Beer, specifically Machine House Brewery’s Dark Mild.

Saturday’s 7 a.m. match between England and Sweden coincided with the grand opening of Machine House’s new pub on Jefferson Street in the Central District. So, while men fought over a soccer ball and eager fans gazed at two flat screens in the pub, I let myself be consumed by the beautiful balance of Dark Mild. This beer has the mellow flavor of roasted grains, a completely dry body, and finishes with notes of dried cherries and raisins. It’s probably Seattle’s most understated beer.

Machine House's new pub has been a long time coming. They've had a lease on their space for almost a year, but Saturday's timing with England winning a match in the World Cup felt natural, considering the cask ales Machine House produces are the traditional drink of Great Britain. Bill Arnott, the brewer and owner of Machine House, spent the game pacing behind the bar watching his native England play an elimination game, occasionally wincing at plays even after his team was up by two goals.

“I’m just glad we got this place open before England got knocked out, I didn’t think it was going to happen,” Arnott said.

The pub is Machine House's second location; their original taproom and brewery is in the original Rainier Brewery building Georgetown. The pub strikes a design balance between the new American urbanism that has invaded the Central District with polished concrete floors and big glass windows and the wood-paneled coziness you expect from a classic English pub. A chalkboard runs above the entire length of the bar, displaying the tap list and a small menu of toasts, and a glass window sits underneath the board, giving drinkers a peek at casks of beer.

Even if Arnott’s new pub looked like a Mexican restaurant he would still be serving the most authentic English drinking experience this side of the Atlantic. Arnott ferments his traditional cask ales in open vats, as opposed to the sterile and sealed fermenters most modern beer is made in. Cask ale is never artificially carbonated, creating a smoother beer that lacks the strong fizz of your classic IPA.

Without any forced carbonation, cask ales are served with only the help of gravity and the traditional hand pumps that the bartender pulls to fill up your pint. This serving method is what makes cask ale especially unique, and perfecting Machine House’s new pub’s serving system was one of the reasons for the pub’s delayed opening.

"Everything is designed to serve cask ale the best way, better even than our bar in Georgetown," Arnott said.

This specialized serving system is one of the reasons Arnott opened up this new pub—he doesn’t trust most taprooms around town to serve his beer correctly. So, to get his beers to customers unable or unwilling to track to the deep south of our city, he had to bring his own cask lines north.

The central district pub is likely to make a lot of the city’s brewers and craft beer fanatics happy. His beers are beloved in the city for their nuance and balance, and it helps that most of their best beers are under 4 percent alcohol, an enjoyable proposition for industry regulars who often tire of excessive alcohol. When Machine House is at its best, and it usually is, their beers are succinct little packages that deliver beguiling flavor without hitting you over the head. They’re charming beers, like a witty remark that lingers in your head for hours.

That’s not to say everyone will love Machine House’s ales—their warmer serving temperature and lack of fizz make for a rude awakening for those that lack curiosity. Just check the Yelp page for the Georgetown taproom and you’ll see how many patrons are confused by the “warm beer” and “off flavors.” Arnott plans to appease cask ale haters with a few guest taps as well as cider and wine. Given Machine House’s local prestige, good kegs will likely find their way to this pub.

Machine House plans to open early every weekend for European soccer matches as well as the rest of the World Cup. England plays their semi-final match Wednesday at 11 a.m., and with beer this good Machine House is likely to have a packed house watching.

The Tech Behind the 2018 FIFA World Cup phil.goldstein_6191 Tue, 07/10/2018 - 12:17

There have been several surprising turns at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, including defending champion Germany’s failure to make it out of the group stage, England’s run to the semifinals, and relatively early exits from soccer powerhouses like Brazil, Portugal and Spain. What’s not surprising is that technology has been a key component of the world’s most-watched sporting event.

For the first time ever at a World Cup, FIFA has instituted a video assistant referee (VAR) system to help support the match referee on key decisions and ensure that calls are made correctly. The introduction of VAR attracted a great deal of controversy before the tournament started in June but has been generally seen as a positive move for the World Cup (though there has been some dissent).

Meanwhile, Fox Sports, the U.S. broadcaster for the World Cup, partnered with IBM to use the tech giant’s Watson artificial intelligence platform to quickly classify, edit and access match highlights in near real time.

The developments suggest that, for a tournament that began in 1930, the fast-paced technology world is weaving its way into the beautiful game in ways unlike ever before.

VAR Helps Refs Make the Right Calls

Although the VAR system is brand new at the World Cup, other sports have used video review for years. How does it work for FIFA?

As the Independent reports, there are 13 officials who can be chosen as the VAR and all of them sit in a video control room in Moscow, with one chosen for each game (along with three assistants).

A lot of tech goes into the VAR system. As Digital Trends reports:

The VAR reviews footage from the numerous cameras stationed around the field; according to FIFA, the video assistant referee team has access to 33 broadcast cameras, eight of which are super slow-motion and four of which are ultra slow-motion cameras. There are ultra high-definition (UHD) cameras as well.

The VAR team watches the entire match, and if they see something amiss they can alert the referee. Likewise, if the on-field ref thinks something is wrong he can contact the VAR operation room. Ultimately though, the VAR team only serves an advisory role and the final decision rests with the match referee.

What does VAR help review? There are four main categories, according to FIFA:

  • Goals: The system can be used to check if the ball crossed the goal line, but also if an infringement before the ball went in would have stopped a goal from being awarded.
  • Penalties: VAR can determine if a penalty should have been awarded when it wasn’t, and also the reverse: if the referee mistakenly awarded a penalty for a foul inside the penalty box.
  • Red cards: VAR can help determine if a red card should be awarded to a player after a foul (players who receive red cards are forced to leave the field and the team must continue one player short).
  • Mistaken identity: This part of the VAR system helps refs determine if the wrong player has been disciplined for a foul.

As the Telegraph notes, VAR has had an impact on this year’s tournament: “The system has already been used in the World Cup group stages and Round of 16 to correct and clarify decisions, including Diego Costa’s first goal against Portugal, France’s penalty against Australia as well as Sweden’s penalty against South Korea.”

Fox Teams with IBM’s AI for World Cup Highlights

In June, IBM announced a partnership with Fox Sports for the broadcaster to use IBM Watson Media’s AI video technology and IBM iX’s user experience technology. The goal is to allow Fox to streamline production workflows so that it can quickly identify, edit and deliver match highlights essentially as they are happening. That enables Fox to create more engaging highlight reels for World Cup fans.

The 2014 World Cup attracted 3.2 billion viewers on TV and an estimated 280 million online viewers. Overall, 98,087 hours of video footage was broadcasted. To sift through a similar amount of footage for the 2018 World Cup requires a significant amount of processing power.

“We are delighted to be working with IBM, a leader in the technology space, to help enhance fan experiences and engagement,” Sarah Tourville, senior vice president of sports brand activations at Fox Sports, says in the statement. “Our collaboration affords us an opportunity to utilize their technology across multiple properties, helping to drive engagement for our tentpole events in non-traditional ways.”

Fox and IBM are partnering to create what they call The Highlight Machine, an interactive experience that allows fans to browse FIFA’s archive and create custom highlights from both the historic and 2018 tournament footage.

According to Engadget, Fox says there are 300 archived matches that Watson is capable of analyzing, which viewers filter by World Cup year, team, player, game, play type or any combination of these.

Fans are also able to view and filter highlights by team, player, time frame and type of gameplay, such as penalty kicks and goals. “To extend the post-match conversation on social media, viewers can save, favorite and share highlight reels as well as catch up on games by speedwatching critical, automatically generated clips,” Fox and IBM say in the statement.

Greenfire Farms Queen Silvia  Day-Old Chicks Queen Silvia is the current and longest reigning queen of Sweden, and Her Majesty is the product of an exotic lineage that includes a German father and Brazilian mother. But, there’s also another Queen Silvia from Sweden, perhaps less known but sharing an equally exotic heritage and regal bearing The Queen Silvia chicken developed by Father Martin Silverudd, the geneticist-savant who probably created more new chicken breeds than any other person in history. (During his productive years in the 1950s and 1960s Silverudd created the Isbar, 55 Flowery Hen, Molilja, and Smaaland chickens, among others.) Silverudd was obsessed with creating auto-sexing chickens that produce unusually colored eggs. Silverudd crossed an unusually colored Leghorn and a Rhode Island Red to begin the process that ultimately yielded the Queen Silvia, and given these precursor breeds you can guess that the Queen Silvia delivers where egg production is concerned. The hens lay tons of medium-sized brown eggs. A generally aloof and reserved bird, this breed would do well in both free-range and confinement setups. And unlike their Leghorn forebears, we

          216 - Dan Jones, Lean Outside of Manufacturing      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Podcasts are sponsored by KaiNexus and their continuous improvement software platform -- www.KaiNexus.com Returning to the podcast after his first appearance in Episode #188 is Daniel T. Jones, founder and chairman of the UK-based Lean Enterprise Academy. You can find him on Twitter now as @DanielJonesLean. Dan collaborated with Jim Womack on the books The Machine That Changed the World, Lean Thinking, and Lean Solutions and published other books through the LEA. He is also a senior advisor to the relatively new website and journal "Planet Lean." In this episode, we talk about some of the progress being made in areas outside of manufacturing. Dan says there's "awareness everywhere" but asks if there's "real depth" in Lean progress? We'll discuss how we can reframe Lean for the public sector and healthcare as a way of going beyond mere cost cutting programs. What does Dan seeing happen in software and startup sectors with Lean in companies like Spotify in Sweden? How is interest in the core "respect for people" leading to a search for "more holistic management methods?" For a link to this episode, refer people to www.leanblog.org/216.

          Illustration Of Thai Cave Rescue Mission With Hidden Meanings Goes Viral      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Image via Shutterstock

A stirring cartoon responding to the efforts taken to rescue the soccer team trapped in an underwater cave in Thailand is gaining traction from internet users around the world.

Artistic duo SISIDEA—comprising sisters Aruni Aunhawarakorn and Jantima Manasviyoungkul from Bangkok—first conceptualized the image when news broke that the soccer team and their coach were missing, but it only materialized after the first successful rescue.

The drawing comprises 12 little wild boars and a larger one, as well as several other animals and ‘Iron Man’ swimming out of a cave. After its posting, the drawing was shared by the Royal Thai Navy on Facebook where it’s garnered 198,000 likes and 58,000 shares in less than 24 hours.

While adorable, there’s more than meets the eye because each character in the cartoon holds a special meaning. The boars refer to the boys and their soccer coach, while the white elephant in front of them represents Narongsak Osottanakorn, who is in charge of the rescue operations.

The white horse symbolizes every contributor of the rescue mission. “Everyone is a white knight,” the sisters explain.

The frogs refer to cave divers, the swallows represent Thai climbers, and the white seals are an apt wordplay on the Thai navy SEALs.

Additionally, the dog honors the K9 unit present at the scene, the dragon refers to the rescuers drilling into the cave to extract its waters, and the birds facing the animals symbolize the media.

There are also multiple homages to the countries assisting the mission. There’s a blue lion (Britain and Belgium), a kangaroo (Australia), a panda (China), a crane (Japan), a moose (Sweden), a tiger (Myanmar), a brown elephant (Laos), and an eagle (United States).

For good measure, SpaceX CEO Elon Musk appears in the image of an ‘Iron Man’ mask, since he’s built and sent a kid-sized submarine to aid the operations, with help from his engineering team.

The image isn’t all cheery, though. The single crow overlooking the situation refers to naysayers of the rescue mission.

Have a look at the meaningful illustration below.

Here it is: https://www.reuters.com/article/us-sweden-power-nuclear/grid-operator-warns-wind-will-not-fill-swedens-nuclear-gap-in-winter-idUSKBN1JS1GL Looks like without clean, safe, 24x7 nuclear in the mix, Sweden is shooting itself in the foot AND making themselves dependent on dirty fossil-fuel backup for intermittency.

          Comment on Fresco, The Engineer, Philosopher, Who Did Not Go To School by Fredrik Karlsson      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
It was not until today that I became aware that Jacque Fresco has passed away. I still regret not attending the event in Copenhagen years ago when the Zeitgeist movement was at it's peak. It was through the Zeitgeist movies that I was made aware of the Venus Project. I really would have wanted to at least attend an event with Mr Fresco, I'm not sure about what I would have asked him, I'm an introvert person, but I do love listening to and reading the works of greate individuals as him. Persons like Fresco are few and far between. Unfortunately great minds do seldom get do witness the realization of their life's work. At least Jacque was able to live by example at a small scale facility. Personally, I have searched for years for something meaningful to strive for. The Venus Project has been in the back of my head through many years and I have regreted that I do not hold a degree in architecture or similar. I do read a lot of books in a range of subjects and mostly in English, simply because there is more written in that language (I'm from southern Sweden). I took my PhD too early and I wish that I had started working before to know more what I wanted to "be". Today I work 30 hours a week in a warehouse. I'm glad that I have spare time to read (no, I haven't attended any course since my PhD), but I wish I had a direction, something to strive for. Money and power have never been motivating factors for me, I'm not well adjusted to the society I live in and I have never felt like I was. I did the English test that was a prerequisite for a course I found here, I got C2 in both the tests. Perhaps I could be if some use to the project, I don't have any experience from work life, which I suppose is one reson for not having moved on in my working life. I would like to get better at comminicating face to face, I like to write and feel way more comfortable communicating in text. It is very sad indeed that most people today at best "like" or share visions like The Venus Project. But there are a lot if people volonteering for an array of different causes in the current system, so I guess that there is hope. Unfortunately I assume that architects and similar professionals in general do not have many hourse to spare for volontary work. But then again, if they are wholly convinced that The Venus Project is the future, they will create that time. Thank you for all your work Jaqcue Fresco. Thank you for trying to wake the people if the world and for your great efforts to transform it to a better place, for everyone. Thank you for dreaming huge and for leaving us the blueprints to a more "perfect" future. You will be in our hearts and minds, always. Our time here is fleeting, what matters is what we leave behind for others to expand upon, should they choose to.

What happened today?
I realized I have been miscounting points, but it doesn't make much of a difference at the top. Numbers have been updated.

France vs Belgium
France are on their way to the finals. Not much else to say about that game. It did however, almost clinch a victory for the single user that picked the trio of France, Uruguay, Croatia. If England wins out and Belgium wins the 3rd place match, then the trio of Spain, England, Sweden will force a tiebreaker. France, Colombia, Croatia currently sits in 2nd place, but are threatened by the combos of France, Belgium, Mexico; France, Belgium, Switzerland; and the quartet of Brazil, Belgium, Croatia.

What's up next?

Croatia vs England
Croatia are tough but they may be tired after playing lots of extra soccer in the last two matches. England has looked good, but I'm not convinced they look "raise the trophy" good. Let's see if they can convince me on Wednesday.

          Nina Bouraoui, Maryse Condé et Édouard Louis en lice pour le Nobel alternatif      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

I would even say that the odds are better that we return to a gold standard. I would not be surprised if digital money becomes the norm, however. In some countries such as Sweden, physical currency is already on the wane.


PHYSICAL currency... yes. But of course it's still the same old fiat currency. Sweden just has debit card readers everywhere including most kebab trucks. I would not consider this "digital money"; it's just regular money.



There are a million reasons why cryptocurrencies are useless as a primary medium of exchange. One of them is that blockchain technology, by its fundamental nature (e.g. mining has to be costly), is not physically capable of processing but the most insignificantly tiny fraction of the world's transaction. Think of how many millions of transactions VISA processes every second.

          Enhanced Drug Delivery to the Skin Using Liposomes      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Background: Enhancing drug delivery to the skin has importance in many therapeutic strategies. In particular, the outcome in vascularized composite allotransplantation mainly depends on systemic immunosuppression to prevent and treat episodes of transplant rejection. However, the side effects of systemic immunosuppression may introduce substantial risk to the patient and are weighed against the expected benefits. Successful enhancement of delivery of immunosuppressive agents to the most immunogenic tissues would allow for a reduction in systemic doses, thereby minimizing side effects. Nanoparticle-assisted transport by low temperature–sensitive liposomes (LTSLs) has shown some benefit in anticancer therapy. Our goal was to test whether delivery of a marker agent to the skin could be selectively enhanced. Methods: In an in vivo model, LTSLs containing doxorubicin (dox) as a marker were administered intravenously to rats that were exposed locally to mild hyperthermia. Skin samples of the hyperthermia treated hind limb were compared with skin of the contralateral normothermia hind limb. Tissue content of dox was quantified both via high-performance liquid chromatography and via histology in skin and liver. Results: The concentration of dox in hyperthermia-treated skin was significantly elevated over both normothermic skin and liver. (P < 0.02). Conclusions: We show here that delivery of therapeutics to the skin can be targeted and enhanced using LTSLs. Targeting drug delivery with this method may reduce the systemic toxicity seen in a systemic free-drug administration. Development of more hydrophilic immunosuppressants in the future would increase the applicability of this system in the treatment of rejection reactions in vascularized composite allotransplantation. The treatment of other skin condition might be another potential application.

           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.

          The Spiritual Significance of Trump's Supreme Court Pick      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

We are in the midst of a historic moment for our country. From the moment that Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement from the Supreme Court, every news broadcast in America has been filled with questions about who his replacement will be. And earlier this week, a candidate has been chosen. The entire nation, it seems, is already choosing sides and making judgments. We must be in constant, intense prayer for God to lead us by His Holy Spirit. Through tears we must cry out for His will on the Supreme Court.

While thinking and praying about this last week, I asked myself, What kind of judge do I want, and what kind of judge does America deserve? This question led me to this unusual thought: Two thousand years ago, the world deserved condemnation, judgment and everlasting destruction, but instead, God gave them—and us—a Savior.

Jesus, the one who had the power to condemn us for our sins, did not come to judge us but rather to save us from our own sin. He said, "You judge according to the flesh. I judge no one. Yet if I do judge, My judgment is true. For I am not alone, but I am with the Father who sent Me" (John 8:15-16). Though He had the right to judge us of our sin, instead He took our sin on Himself. Instead of extending condemnation, He extended grace and mercy to mankind, because He knew "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God" (Rom. 3:23).

Paul spoke to this when he wrote the book of Romans and penned these words that came right from the heart of God our Father.

"Who is he who condemns? [does the work of a judge]? It is Christ who died, yes, who is risen, who is also at the right hand of God, who also intercedes for us" (Rom. 8:34).

This is the Savior we serve, one who not only took our sin on Himself to make us clean but also who intercedes for us at the throne of God. This is the character of the Father, who gave us a Savior when we deserved a judge.

History demonstrates that God often uses opposing concepts to highlight His magnificent love and power.

  • When a nation wanted a king, our God gave us a servant.
  • When people wanted a warrior, instead God gave us His child.
  • Humanity wanted a champion, but God gave us the cross.
  • We want titles, and God gives a testimony.

Does our society—in a nation that boasts multiple superstar judges, like Judge Judy, Judge Wapner and Judge Joe Brown, to name a few recognizable figures—really need more judgment than there already is, or do we just need more of the Spirit of the Savior? After all, it's easy to judge, but it's better to love.

Now, the Word of the living God talks a lot about judgment, and let me say clearly, God's judgment is coming. Acts 17:31 tells us, "He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by a Man [Jesus] whom He has appointed, having given assurance of this to all men by raising Him from the dead."

But until that day, our cry should be, "Let the beauty of Jesus be seen in me!"

Remember, it's easy to judge, but it's better to love.

You are beautiful. I see Jesus in you!

Gerald Gillum touched down in Calgary, Alberta on July 9 before being denied entry, leading to a cancellation of his Calgary Stampede concert scheduled for later that evening.The Cowboys Music Festival tent, which is located on the Calgary Stampede grounds and hosts a number of performers each year, released a statement late Monday announcing the cancellation for "reasons beyond their control".







In May, Gillum was arrested in Sweden and found to be in possession of cocaine after a physical altercation.

Back in November 2017, Gerry's ex-girlfriend and throaty vocalist Halsey cancelled her Calgary show mid-way through the performance due to a family emergency.

          It’s an all European success      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

England has already improved its shortfalls which seemed never-ending since it won the 1966 World Cup when it hosted the tournament.

The arrival at the starting block for a place in the final may even have surprised the diehard fans, who are all now poised to shout their hearts out for two consecutive victories.

The quality of the team’s matches varied, not from game to game, but through portions of each match when its share of moderate passing, supported by long aerial “hail Mary” passes with the hope of reaching the feet of Harry Kane and Sterling.

England achieved penetration and goal opportunities as its best options at set plays, especially corners which brought the absolute brilliance of McGuire and to a lesser extent Delli Alli.

I am reluctant to express my observations as far as the general performances of Kane and his team.

It was probably the first time that an England team had struggled to put together a team which seemed not to be structural, but they banked heavily upon individual performances in order to gain goalscoring opportunities.

While I congratulate the team for its resilience in all matches, there were moments when some of the team’s opponents appeared as though they would find gaps in their three-man defence, all of whom were competent individually, but struggled to communicate well enough to give the resemblance of solidity.

The Columbians bemoaned the fact that their downfall may have been caused by infringements coming out of player clashes and was interpreted by the officials (both the refs and the VAR).

While the English had improved its speed levels against Sweden whose stereotypical pattern of play seemed solid, but inconsistent, Sterling and Lingard gave them hope, while the team’s main ball winner Henderson joined into the process of assisting Alli and Young by creating some attacks along the flanks.

Corners and free kicks were responsible for the team’s best efforts at goal which resulted in headers for Mcguire and Alli, both well executed from crossed balls, good enough to take them into the semis.

Croatia will have to dig deep into its endurance levels, plus some astute midfield work by Modric, Rakitic and Rebic, while the flankers Strinic and Perisic will give striker Mandzukic some semblances of a goal or two. It did not happen.

Surely, the thought of yellow cards handed to Lovren, Vida, Pivoric and Strinic, while the host country only received one in Gavinski.

However, after a few days’ rests, the Croatians appeared to be strategically sound and the maximum use of their key contributors may well place enormous pressure on the three back system of Walker, Stones, and McGuire.

Could the English return to the glory of 1966? If it does, it will have to be an amazing improvement from the team’s earlier matches. Let us wish them well.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

          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.

Sweden Fatal Shooting Suspect is Islamic State Fighter



A 30-year-old man in Sweden has been arrested in connection with a murder and according to investigators, had travelled to the Middle East to fight for Islamic State.

The radical Islamic extremist was arrested after being suspected of a connection to the fatal shooting of two men in their 20s that occurred last Tuesday in the city of Örebro’s Vivalla neighbourhood, Swedish broadcaster SVT reports.
Prosecutor Krister Petersson refused to elaborate on the background of the man stating that he could only say that he had been arrested on suspicion of murder.

According to the broadcaster, the suspect is one of the 20 to 30 individuals from Vivalla who left Sweden to join and fight for Islamic State or another terror group in either Syria or Iraq.
The man in question is believed to have fought in Syria and attempted to establish an Islamic State stronghold in the area after travelling to the region in 2013.
He is said to have initially joined a radical Islamist group which was later incorporated into Islamic State. He later returned to Sweden after his brothers, who had also gone to fight for the terror group, were killed.
The 30-year-old’s lawyer Christoffer Olsson has denied his client took part in last week’s murder but avoided a question about his client’s past terrorist links saying they were not part of the current investigation.

What are the advantages and pitfalls of the short-short nonfiction essay? And what are the advantages and pitfalls of framing creative nonfiction (CNF) work about one’s own family?

Possible answers to these craft questions can found in Autumn (Penguin, 2017), celebrated Norwegian writer Karl Ove Knausgård’s first book-length work in English since his name-making six-volume My Struggle autofiction saga. Published in the US and UK this past fall, the book is essentially a collection of mini-essays framed for an unborn daughter; it’s also the first in a cycle of four volumes, Årstid encyklopedien (Seasonal Encyclopedia), published in the original Norwegian in 2015 and 2016.

The book’s presentation and conceptual conceit requires further explication: a short letter addressing the author’s unborn fourth child precedes each of Autumn’s three month-sections (“September,” “October,” and “November”), with each month-section containing exactly twenty lyrically ruminative vignettes (sixty in total), none running longer than three pages in length. The book also includes pastoral illustrations by Norwegian artist Vanessa Baird that appear at the beginning of every month-section. Another two rather nightmarish oil paintings by Baird appear seemingly randomly in the middle of the first and third sections but are not of any obvious import to the book’s overall conceit and arguably could have been excised.[i]

Autumn’s sixty mini-essays span an encyclopedic range of topics: from everyday objects and animals (e.g., “Apples,” “Frogs,” “Cars”), parts of the human body and its fluids (e.g., “Mouth,” “Labia,” “Vomit”), human sensations and intangible concepts (e.g., “Loneliness,” “Pain,” “Silence”), adult concerns (e.g., “Petrol,” “War,” “Oil Tankers”), and famed artists (e.g., “Van Gogh,” “Flaubert,” and early twentieth-century German photographer August Sander) to natural phenomenon and unlikely objects of inquiry (e.g., “Lightning,” “The Migration of Birds,” “Toilet Bowls”), among others. The project, at first glance, may seem to be one of randomness, an attempt to reconcile observations of the natural world with the contemporary condition of a hyperfragmented attention span.

We know the Seasonal Encyclopedia is the result of two projects coming together, beginning with letters Knausgård started writing for an unborn third daughter: “I wanted to write something for her, a diary or letter, for her to read when she was older—about how things looked like around our home before she was born, what her family was like, our thoughts and habits” (Paris Review interview). Around the same time, Knausgård was commissioned by an editor at an American magazine to write a series of mini-essays to be published in every issue for a year; and though the editor left the magazine and the pieces he wrote never ran, “in that brief form I’d found something that appealed to me” (Paris Review).

The book appears to borrow genre conventions from educational texts written for young children. By framing every month-section with a letter to his unborn daughter, the sixty short texts take on the form of a time capsule or a lexicon of various tangible and intangible things and concepts Knausgård’s daughter might one day want to understand. “These . . . books aren’t about psychological states,” Knausgård said of the aesthetic he cultivated for the Seasonal Encyclopedia. “They’re about things, material realities. Of course, when the birth of a child takes center stage, it automatically lends the whole project a tinge of optimism” (Paris Review). Remove the family frame, then, and all we’re left with are “things.”

Throughout Autumn, Knausgård’s register of language remains semidetached and unemotive. I cannot speak to Knausgård’s prose in the original Norwegian, but here the prose mainly consists of unadorned declarative sentences of a somewhat academic flavor thrumming steadily and inquisitively along. The three letters he writes to his unborn daughter are written in a plainly pensive fashion: “Three siblings, a mother and a father, that’s us”; “. . . all the while you are growing silently in the darkness”; “Everything that happened before you were born will maybe come to seem almost mythical to you.” The apparently random topics Knausgård writes about reflect an attempt at re-achieving a sense of childlike wonder about the world. Simple descriptions of what a thing is or how it works for the benefit of a child become a springboard for free association into memory and worldly (if not fatherly) insight: “I just write about the things I see in front of me. The more personal aspects, how and what I think, come through in descriptions. . . . I’m interested in the idea of looking at things without hierarchy, in the world as it is before we start categorizing it” (Paris Review). The book, in this sense, is a worthy CNF study of defamiliarization.

Each mini-essay may purport to limn or define the entire working essence of a thing, but the scope of each vignette is limited to just one man’s worldview and understanding.

Every one of these sixty mini-essay aims to make something magical or wondrous of the otherwise quotidian. Many are directly inspired by the rural part of Sweden’s southernmost province where Knausgård was then living (e.g., “Beekeeping,” “Stubble Fields,” “Chimneys”), which harkens back to the roots of the mini-essay form—the poetry written about Greek pastoral life in the third century BC by Theocritus, to whom the “idyll” form is commonly attributed: “A short poem describing an incident of country life in terms of idealized innocence and contentment; or any such episode in a poem or prose work” (Oxford Dictionary of Literary Terms). Every mini-essay in Autumn is structured like a prose-poem idyll and occasionally takes on the qualities of a diary, documenting the author’s everyday household chores like picking up his three kids from school and making meals. Each may purport to limn or define the entire working essence of a thing, but the scope of each vignette is limited to just one man’s worldview and understanding. This is, in the end, a project dedicated to an individual written by another individual.

A close, sequential reading of “Badgers” reveals a narrative method common to nearly every mini-essay found in Autumn:

  1. The topic arrives unexpectedly, having been preceded by (in the order of appearance): “Fingers,” “Autumn Leaves,” “Stubble Fields,” and “Bottles.”
  2. The mini-essay begins informationally, in the style of an encyclopedia for children: “One would think that the badger, with its characteristic snout, which is white and black and resembles nothing else in the fauna of the Nordic countries, and its broad, somehow flat body would be remarkable enough that stories would be told about it.”
  3. The author then delves into interesting, though unsourced, factlike claims: “[The badger] lives in clans of ten to fifteen members, typically in dense forest, often in the vicinity of open fields, where it gets its food at night. The badger is closely associated with the earth; it digs networks of burrows underground, which sometimes remain in use for several hundred years.”
  4. A rhetorical question opens a line of inquiry: “What is the badger really like?”
  5. Which then leads into a digression concerning larger cultural concerns: “That the badger has not been subsumed into culture enables us to see what culture does to the other animals which we have some kind of hold over, which we are familiar with and use to populate the stories we tell our children.”
  6. Which suddenly transitions toward distant-past memoir: “I myself have only seen a badger a handful of times, always in the same place, outside the house where I lived as a teenager.”
  7. Which is followed by a subsequent return to the present with flashes of insight via defamiliarization: “Now when I drive along the motorway to Malmö and see one of the beautiful, black-and-white-snouted badgers lying bloodied and motionless on the roadway, I am filled with a dull, hopeless rage, for the thing that killed it is a structure I help to maintain and which works so well for me that I am unwilling to renounce it.”
  8. The mini-essay ends on an Aesop’s fable–like moral—presumably a takeaway for the author’s unborn daughter: “[Driving a car] is an original sin, it belongs to everyone and can only be undone by all of us together.” (119–21)[ii] 

Involving one’s own family in creative nonfiction is always something of a dicey business.

Nowhere in the text of Autumn does Knausgård directly comment on the purpose of his Seasonal Encyclopedia project. The conceptual grouping of the mini-essays into the four seasons and then into separate months, along with the letters to his unborn third daughter preceding every month-section, imbues the larger project with larger existential significance. It also leads us to assume that every mini-essay is dedicated to a to-be-born daughter, even when the subject is trivial or profane (e.g., “Chewing Gum” or “Labia”). There is something very reality-television-like about Knausgård’s project: in every letter to his unborn daughter we are made privy to a detailed and intimate portrait of his family—albeit the personal information we’re given in Autumn is hardly salacious.[iii] Involving one’s own family in CNF is always something of a dicey business. It won’t be long until we can directly ask Knausgård’s then-unborn daughter what she makes of a project she had no say in.

Postmodern parenting questions aside, the composition of Autumn smacks of a highly regimented writerly discipline. Every letter to Knausgård’s unborn daughter is dated, which presumably means the twenty mini-essays contained in every month-section were written in a month’s time. In theory, the micromodular essay form should allow for a more prolific output, though we don’t know how many mini-essays Knausgård wrote and then didn’t include, or how many he began to write and then abandoned. The flash or short-short form (typically defined as a thousand words or less) inherently demands incisive brevity. The form forces the writer to articulate only a few details that still tell or suggest a larger story. In Autumn, Knausgård doesn’t use every mini-essay to build on a larger story-driven narrative, but the form, I believe, should be employed for narrative storytelling, especially for stories that have no definite beginnings or endings.

Autumn perhaps works best as a study of disciplined writerly habits.

 

But which stories are more suited for the short-short form? And which stories are more suited for a more in-depth and lengthy study? Given the ultimately granular breadth of Autumn, I’m not sure Knausgård has an answer for us. As to what Autumn can teach us about the short-short nonfiction essay and the trappings of writing one’s own family into CNF work, I will have to reserve judgment until I’m able to read the rest of the Seasonal Encyclopedia, but for now: Autumn perhaps works best as a study of disciplined writerly habits. The book does not work as a book of revelations concerning the father–unborn daughter bond or as a working compendium of all things human. If the project weren’t framed for family, or if this were the work of a less famed author, it’s conceivable few would’ve taken note of its publication. 

Autumn does, however, give us license to write daily without exceptions, for at least a full season, with an exacting eye on completing a full single short-form work every day. To then reframe what results as a whole for one’s own family virtually assures that every small piece will then be infused with new and unexpected meanings.

Ladraa (25 tahun) memulai perjalanannya ke Palestina dari Swedia sekitar 1 tahun yang lalu, untuk meningkatkan kesadaran akan pelanggaran Hak Asasi Manusia di wilayah Palestina terjajah. Setelah tiba di perbatasan zionis Israel dari Yordania, Ladraa dilarang oleh otoritas zionis Israel masuk Palestina dan ditahan selama 6 jam. Dalam sebuah pernyataannya, Juru Bicara Fawzi Barhoum mengatakan larangan itu merupakan cerminan kebijakan isolasi zionis Israel bagi orang-orang Palestina dan ketidakadilan serta tekanan kepada orang-orang Palestina. . Palestinian President Mahmud Abbas granted Palestinian citizenship to Swedish activist Benjamin Ladraa, Friday (6/7/2018). Ladraa (25 years) started her journey to Palestine from Sweden about 1 year ago, to raise awareness of human rights violations in occupied Palestinian territory. Upon arriving at Israel's Zionist border from Jordan, Ladraa was banned by Israeli Zionist authorities entering Palestine and detained for 6 hours. In a statement, Spokesman Fawzi Barhoum said the ban was a reflection of Israel's Zionist isolation policy for Palestinians and injustice and pressure on the Palestinians.

"IKEA urges customers to stop using the water dispenser and return it to any IKEA store for a full refund," the company said in a statement on its website.

          Helsinki will host the Trump-Putin summit next week — here's how the remote city became a major player in the drama between Russia and the West      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Helsinki Cathedral, FInland.Flickr Creative Commons / Giuseppe Milo

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

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

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

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

Below are some milestones in Helsinki's diplomatic history.

Balancing act

(AP Photo)

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

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

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

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



Helsinki Accords

AP

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

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



Soviet end-game

Thomson Reuters

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

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

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

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

          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.

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.

AIM: Patients with rectal cancer may undergo treatment such as surgery and (chemo)radiotherapy. Before treatment, patients are informed of different options and possible side-effects. The aim of the study was to evaluate the patients' experience of communication with healthcare personnel at time of diagnosis and after one year.
METHOD: A total of 1085 patients from Denmark and Sweden were included. They answered a detailed questionnaire at diagnosis and at the one year follow-up. Clinical data were retrieved from national quality registries.
RESULTS: Response rates were 87% at baseline and 74% at one year. Overall the patients were very satisfied with the communication with healthcare personnel. However, some patients reported insufficient information regarding treatment options and possible side-effects. Only 32% (335/1050) and 24% (248/1053), respectively, stated that they were informed about possible sexual and urinary dysfunction before treatment.
CONCLUSIONS: Even though patients felt that they received insufficient information regarding side-effects on sexual and urinary function, they were generally satisfied with the communication with the healthcare personnel. Since overall satisfaction with the level of information was very high, it is unlikely that further information to patients with rectal cancer in the surgical and oncological settings will improve satisfaction with communication.

          THE U.S. IS BROKE! / SEEKING ALPHA      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The U.S. Is Broke!

by: Shareholders Unite
- Debt scares once again resurface with US public debt at historically high levels and entitlement spending set to increase further. Some argue the US is basically broke.

- We will try to show that many of the arguments used are exaggerated and show you a country that should be much more broke, yet is thriving nevertheless.

- While not waving concerns about US public debt entirely, we think private sector debt is actually a much bigger risk, given the fact that it has caused most financial crisis.
 
 
SA contributor Ronald Surz wrote an alarming article on the state of the US economy, arguing that its debt levels (120% of GDP, or 390% of GDP including future Social Security and Medicare obligations) are so terrible that the US is "even more broke than we think."
 
The article is full of alarmist language, big scary numbers, and got a stamp of approval in the form of an editor award. But we're afraid that conclusion is simply wrong, and we will try to show you why.
 
Even worse
 
For starters, we introduce a country with the following characteristics:
  • It suffered an asset bubble crash that was three times bigger (relative to the size of its economy) than the crashes in the US in 1929 and 2008/9.
  • It has the world's worst demographics.
  • It has a public debt over 230% of GDP, more than twice that of the US.
 
If the US is broke, this country should be bankrupt already. However:
  • Despite the mother of all asset bubble implosions, the economy never experienced anything remotely like an economic depression and never got anywhere close to double-digit unemployment.
  • The economy (on a GDP per person basis) has done as well as that of the US (with the benefits much more equally spread), see figure below.
  • The economy has even lower employment than the US.
  • Visiting the country will give everyone the impression of a rich country with little poverty or crime, first-rate infrastructure.
  • The country has no inflation.
  • Interest rates, despite the massive public debt, are zero.
  • Its stock market has been booming.
 
 
The gap is even narrowing. If this country is broke than somebody forgot to tell it. The country we're talking about is of course Japan. It should give those who predict a terrible future for the US at least some pause for thought.
 
If this is what it means to live in a country that is broke, perhaps more countries will want to go broke.
 
Yes, we know, the BoJ, Japan's central bank is actually massively buying up Japanese debt, but despite all the predictions about this leading to massive "currency debasement", this keeps not happening.
 
In fact, the BoJ can't even achieve its stated target, which is a mere 2% inflation. And despite all the professed "currency debasement", the yen stubbornly functions as a safe haven investment, a place for investors to park their money when risks in the world economy increase.
 
Are we saying Japan shouldn't worry at all about its debt? No, we aren't. But Japan's situation is much worse compared to that of the US in all of the respects that seem to matter to the debt alarmist (much worse demographics, much higher debt, etc.) yet its economy remains rich, and the predicted crisis keeps not happening.
 
The fact that 'a Japan' exists should simply give the debt alarmist some pause for thought, that's all we are saying here.
 
Gross and net debt and assets
 
Surz cites a gross public debt ratio of 120% of GDP. But this figure significantly overstates the magnitude of the problem:
  • Net public debt is significantly lower as there are quite a number of US Federal agencies holding a significant portion of the US outstanding debt, like the Fed for instance, or the trust funds of Medicare and Medicaid.
  • As with any balance sheet, one should not only look at one side of the ledger but also at the asset side like all of the buildings, public lands, the commodity resources below the public lands (see below) etc.
On public assets, here is the IER:
The federal government owns a great deal of valuable assets both above and below ground. The above ground assets include buildings, lands, roads, railroad infrastructure, levees, dams, and hydroelectric generating facilities, to name just a few, many of which are underutilized. Below the ground, the federal government owns the rights to mineral and energy leases, from which they receive royalties, rents, and bonus payments... The federal government's total mineral estate holdings are therefore about 2.515 billion acres of lands. Thus, the federal government's mineral estate land holdings surpass the total surface land area of the nation of Canada... IER estimated the worth of the government's oil and gas technically recoverable resources to the economy to be $128 trillion, about 8 times our national debt.... IER estimated the government's coal resources in the lower 48 states to be worth $22.5 trillion for a total worth to the economy of fossil fuels on federal lands of $150.5 trillion, over 9 times our national debt.
 
Granted, the potential income (royalties, rents, taxes, etc.) on those below the ground assets is a mere fraction of what these assets are worth, but the financing cost of the public debt is also a mere fraction of the amount of outstanding public debt (and at historically low levels, see below).
 
We often hear that the public debt is such a burden on future generations, but it tends to be overlooked that future generations are also inheriting the assets or stuff that was done with the money which might have improved the economy (like investments in infrastructure, education, R&D, etc.).
 
Future generations also inherit most of the interest rate paid on the debt (see below).
 
Foreign holdings and currency
 
The debt figures sound scary because many think of debt in similar terms as those of a household, yet this analogy is quite misleading:
  • Much of the outstanding debt (58%) is simply debt to ourselves. Foreigners hold 44% of the debt, actually down from 56% in 2008.
  • Unlike households, economies have more tools at their disposal to deal with the debt, like increasing taxes, growing the economy or issuing currency to liquidate the debt.
  • The US debt is denominated in US dollars, the US can print these dollars at will so it can't really go bankrupt. Yes, under certain circumstances, this could accelerate inflation and/or reduce international confidence in the dollar, but these circumstances are much narrower than some would like you to believe. If you have doubts here, re-read the part about Japan above, where despite massive BoJ bond purchases, it can't even reach its 2% inflation target, and the yen is still a safe haven currency in international markets.
Take for instance growth:
If GDP growth is greater than interest costs plus new deficits, then the debt/GDP ratio will stabilize, all else being equal. Right now, the US government can borrow for 10 years at a 0.7% real interest rate; in comparison, real GDP growth was 2.8% in 1Q2018 (chart from JPM).
While the debt is large, servicing costs are actually historically low:
 
 
 
This also suggests that markets are not worried about the debt levels, which is at least somewhat curious because most of the debt hawks tend to be people who argue that markets are always right.
 
In fact, we're hard-pressed to come up with examples of a country that issued its debt in its own currency experiencing a severe funding crisis let alone bankruptcy outside of catastrophic circumstances of war or a collapse in production.
 
Almost all of the recent US financial crises have origins in excessive private sector debt and leverage, not public debt. We should be worrying much more about that, as it happens.
 
Medicare and Social Security
 
Another scare is the big number of future obligations of these programs, which usually run into a dozen or more trillions of dollars, a scary number indeed. But what the number relates is the present value of future obligations, simply relating these same figures as a percentage of GDP, and they will morph into a much less scarier variant.
 
Consider the figure below:
 
 
 
So, over the coming 22 years, Social Security spending is going to increase by... a whopping 1% of GDP and Medicare by almost 2%. Remember, this is over a period of more than two decades. Here is Bloomberg summarizing:
Put the current intermediate estimates for both Social Security and Medicare together, and you get a funding deficit that rises from 0.1 percent of gross domestic product in 2017 to 1.7 percent in 2035 and fluctuates between 1.6 percent and 1.8 percent for the rest of the century.
If you look at the figure again, you will also notice that Social Security spending has increased from under 1% of GDP to nearly 4% of GDP since the 1970s. Yet somehow, we managed to survive that much bigger increase even if one could imagine people in the 1970s warning about an imminent crisis of terrible proportions, citing big scary numbers of trillions in future liabilities.
 
In fact, below is actually a more scary graph depicting increases in healthcare cost of OECD countries:
 
 
 
But we've also managed to survive this epic increase in healthcare cost. What's more, you see how much of an outlier the US is in terms of healthcare spending. It spends nearly twice as much as basically every other rich country (and that without insuring everybody and not seldom producing worse health outcomes).
 
Not only did the US survive that, it also indicates that if the US should reform its healthcare system and build something like other rich countries have, it could save trillions of dollars in future liabilities (not to mention achieve universal coverage, something which all other rich countries, and a good many poorer ones have).
 
Given the percentages involved, this could make up for the whole projected increase of Social Security and Medicare increase and then some. Gone the scary crisis.
 
Citing these big trillion dollar numbers in future Social Security and Medicare liabilities turns out to be simply a prop, done by people who want to scare the electorate into making cuts now as opposed to.... having to make cuts in the future (or simply raise taxes a couple of points over a period of two decades).

When these are related to GDP, the problem becomes much more manageable. For instance, the US just passed a tax cut which is projected to worsen public finances by roughly $1.9T over a 10-year period, according to CBO.
 
We're not the only ones who noticed. Here is the above cited Bloomberg article again:
Following Treasury's example, I estimate that the tax bill passed in December will cut revenue by an average of 1.1 percent of GDP over the coming four years (between 0.8 percent and 0.9 percent if you factor in the growth effects projected by the Joint Committee on Taxation). That's less than the 1.7 percent of GDP that Social Security and Medicare are projected to add to the deficit in a couple of decades, but (1) it's not of a different order of magnitude and (2) it's happening now rather than two decades in the future.
So, a good deal of the projected shortfall of Social Security and Medicare over the same period could have been covered without the tax cuts.
 
Yet curiously, when faced with those numbers, the advocates usually argue that we have to... cut spending on Social Security and Medicare. That's fine, as long as it is made clear that this is a political choice (both the tax cuts and the proposed spending cuts on Social Security and Medicare).
 
Then, there are the scary warnings about having to dip into the trust funds of Social Security and Medicare, here is Ronald Surz:
We are spending down the corpus, and will have spent all of the Social Security Trust by 2034, while Medicare monies will only last until 2026. This might sound like we have time, but we don't, especially since nothing is being done to head off these catastrophes. It's full speed ahead into the reckoning.

Not quite. Both these trust funds and Social Security and Medicare itself are funded from payroll taxes. When these exceeded spending on Social Security and Medicare, the excess was put in the trust funds (which bought US Treasuries) and the interest income of these helped funding the entitlements.

This is no longer the case, and we're slowly liquidating the trust funds. That sounds scary (and it is often suggested as some disaster when they run out), and it is.
 
But it not nearly as scary as some suggest as even if these trust funds run out completely (which will happen at the projected dates cited by Surz), we still have payroll taxes financing most (three quarters) of these entitlements.
 
So, we do need to raise taxes or cut entitlements or a combination of both, but even if entitlements aren't cut, the tax increases no economic disaster, given the low level of US taxes in the first place.
 
Indeed, the US tax burden is lower compared to almost all other rich countries (and lower still after the recent tax cuts, not included in the figure):
 
 
 
In fact, Federal tax receipts (payroll taxes are Federal taxes) are much lower still and haven't trended upwards unlike other rich countries, from the Bloomberg article:
Yet federal revenue, which has averaged 17.3 percent of GDP since 1950 and also happens to have been 17.3 percent of GDP in fiscal 2017, is projected by the White House Office of Management and Budget to decline to an average of 16.5 percent of GDP over the next four years, and given the many loopholes and outright mistakes people have been finding in the hastily written tax legislation, I wouldn't be shocked if it went lower than that.
Yet, many of the countries with a much higher tax burden, like Denmark, The Netherlands, Germany, Sweden, Austria, and Luxembourg are doing quite well economically. The US is hardly bankrupt. It still has many choices to avoid escalating public debt.
 
History
 
Apart from the Japan example, one might also appreciate what happened with all the previous worries about public debt, which is done in this instructive article from Naked Capitalism.
 
Larger public sector
 
We think the panic about US public finances has much to do with an aversion against government.
 
We have no problem with that, as long as people understand that this is mostly a political, not an economic argument (even if it's often cloaked as an economic one).
 
But as we showed, the US tax burden is low compared to most other rich countries and lower still after the recent tax cuts. Funny enough, the fiscal implications of these tax cuts were routinely waved away by the proponents, who also tend to be the ones most alarmed by the fiscal implications of the entitlement increases.
 
What you also should realize is that public spending tends to increase as a percentage of GDP as countries get richer, for at least three reasons:
  • 'Baumol's disease' which shows that public sector productivity grows slower than the private sector, making it relatively more expensive over time (this originates from the fact that most public sector spending are services for which it's difficult or impossible to increase productivity).
  • Shifting preferences; when people get richer, they tend to place more importance on a safe environment, on healthy products, on a cleaner environment, better schools for their children, better healthcare, etc. all sectors which make disproportionate claims on the public sector (through regulation, justice, law enforcement or direct government involvement).
  • Economic complexity increases, which also tends to disproportionally increase claims on the public sector.
  • Populations age, increasing healthcare and pension cost.

Rather than panic, we should simply accept these realities and deal with them. How, that is a political choice, but there is no overriding economic logic determining that.
 
Conclusion
 
Does the US face bankruptcy? No, not at present. While the public debt as a percentage of GDP is historically high and its future trajectory isn't looking good, there is time to act, and there is much that can be done.
 
Moreover, much of it is debt to ourselves, so future generations also inherit much of the interest payments on the debt, as well as the assets on the US balance sheet.

The US is an economy, not a household, and as such, it has many more ways to deal with it, like increasing growth, raising taxes (which are low compared to international standards) or issuing currency, as the debt is denominated in US dollars.
 
The present value of future entitlement obligations is indeed a very large number, but the size of the US economy is also a very large number. When entitlements are expressed as spending as a percentage of GDP, we see that they rise, but only by a couple of percentage points of GDP and that over a period of decades.
 
The rise is serious, but not beyond the scope of the US economy to deal with. The real problem lies in the dysfunctional US healthcare system, which is almost twice as expensive compared to the average of other rich countries as a percentage of GDP. That's low hanging fruit just there.

And the Croats have sat up and taken notice, with boss Zlatko Dalic reportedly set to play holding midfielder Milan Badelj instead of winger Ivan Perisic in order to contain the Three Lions. Who is Milan […]

          Enhanced Drug Delivery to the Skin Using Liposomes      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Background: Enhancing drug delivery to the skin has importance in many therapeutic strategies. In particular, the outcome in vascularized composite allotransplantation mainly depends on systemic immunosuppression to prevent and treat episodes of transplant rejection. However, the side effects of systemic immunosuppression may introduce substantial risk to the patient and are weighed against the expected benefits. Successful enhancement of delivery of immunosuppressive agents to the most immunogenic tissues would allow for a reduction in systemic doses, thereby minimizing side effects. Nanoparticle-assisted transport by low temperature–sensitive liposomes (LTSLs) has shown some benefit in anticancer therapy. Our goal was to test whether delivery of a marker agent to the skin could be selectively enhanced. Methods: In an in vivo model, LTSLs containing doxorubicin (dox) as a marker were administered intravenously to rats that were exposed locally to mild hyperthermia. Skin samples of the hyperthermia treated hind limb were compared with skin of the contralateral normothermia hind limb. Tissue content of dox was quantified both via high-performance liquid chromatography and via histology in skin and liver. Results: The concentration of dox in hyperthermia-treated skin was significantly elevated over both normothermic skin and liver. (P < 0.02). Conclusions: We show here that delivery of therapeutics to the skin can be targeted and enhanced using LTSLs. Targeting drug delivery with this method may reduce the systemic toxicity seen in a systemic free-drug administration. Development of more hydrophilic immunosuppressants in the future would increase the applicability of this system in the treatment of rejection reactions in vascularized composite allotransplantation. The treatment of other skin condition might be another potential application.

           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.

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.
