          14 Extraños artefactos antiguos que te pondrán la piel de gallina con solo verlos      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Los hallazgos arqueológicos más antiguos de la historia fueron realizados en la aldea ucraniana de Korolevo, donde había un asentamiento de hombre primitivo que se adentra en la tierra bajo 7 capas. La edad de algunos de los objetos encontrados es de 900 mil años. Y a pesar de que son únicos, los arqueólogos de todo el mundo realizan descubrimientos no menos interesantes todos los días. Los artefactos que hemos encontrado para ti, aunque son considerablemente más jóvenes, no tienen menos valor para la historia. Miremos el pasado juntos. 1. Pan de la antigua Pompeya Los arqueólogos encontraron este pan petrificado en las ruinas de una de las 33 panaderías abiertas en Pompeya hace casi 2 000 años. El pan fue horneado en el año 79, el día en que la gran ciudad fue destruida. 2. Muñeca embarazada japonesa, siglo XIX Esta muñeca no es para nada un análogo de la Barbie embarazada, sino solo un modelo para el entrenamiento visual de parteras. El kit incluye la muñeca en sí, una panza pegada con estrías dibujadas y varios fetos intercambiables en diferentes etapas de desarrollo. Además, las muñecas se utilizaron como una atracción, diseñada para revelar algunos secretos de la vida humana para el público educado. 3. Mapa del corazón femenino, siglo XIX Quizás el mapa más romántico del mundo fue inventado y pintado por el litógrafo Daniel Wright Kellogg bajo el seudónimo de Lady. Como vemos, Kellogg tenía una opinión típica sobre las mujeres de esa época: en el centro del mapa estaba el amor, debajo de el, el egoísmo y el sentimentalismo, y en la parte superior, la coquetería y el amor por los vestidos. 4. Ataúdes pequeños de la cueva de Arturo 17 pequeños ataúdes fueron encontrados en una cueva en la colina del Trono de Arturo en 1836. Todos tenían tapas movibles, y dentro de cada uno había una muñeca de madera con ropa de hombre. Los especialistas plantean 2 teorías. Según el primero, los ataúdes podrían usarse en rituales vudú. Pero la segunda teoría, más popular, sugiere que los ataúdes son una especie de contador de las víctimas del asesino en serie. Hasta la fecha, se ha establecido solamente que los ataúdes fueron hechos en diferentes momentos entre 1812 y 1820, pero el misterio de su origen aún no está resuelto. 5. Madres fantasma “Madres fantasmas” fue un género de fotografía británica que existió hasta la década de 1920. En ese momento, el proceso fotográfico podría durar varios minutos, y los niños pequeños a menudo comenzaban a llorar y gatear en el marco. Luego, comenzaron a sentar a los niños sobre sus madres, pero como la foto tenía que capturar solo al niño, arrojaban una tela sobre la madre, “convirtiéndola” en una especie de sillón. A veces, este método fue utilizado para crear fotografías de difuntos. 6. Sanguijuela mecánica Este dispositivo no es un instrumento medieval de tortura, como puede parecer a primera vista. Fue inventado en 1840 para reducir el uso de sanguijuelas vivas. Una sanguijuela mecánica cortaba los tejidos de la superficie con cuchillas giratorias y chupaba sangre con un vacío que se formaba en el cilindro. 7. Tigre Tipu, siglo XVIII El famoso juguete es un tigre que desgarra a un soldado británico. Las figuras son casi de tamaño real, y los mecanismos dentro de los cuerpos de madera imitan los sonidos de los gritos del hombre y el gruñido del tigre. El juguete fue hecho para el gobernante indio Tipu Sultan, que odiaba a los británicos con todo su corazón. 8. Experimento de Guillaume Duchenne, siglo XIX En esta foto, el “padre de la electroterapia” Guillaume Duchenne pasa la corriente a través de los músculos faciales de una persona viva, de esta manera Duchenne estudió las contracciones musculares. Hizo cientos de experimentos similares e hizo varios descubrimientos importantes. 9. Prótesis La prótesis se inventó incluso antes de Cristo. Por ejemplo, la primera fotografía muestra la prótesis de un egipcio antiguo del dedo gordo del pie, mientras que la segunda imagen muestra una prótesis de bronce realizada en la década de 1890. 10. Botella para las lágrimas Las botellas para lágrimas que fueron inventadas en la Antigua Roma, seguían siendo populares durante muchos siglos. Un vaso alargado con un cuello estrecho tenía la intención de recoger lágrimas cerca de la esquina del ojo. En tales botellas, las mujeres lloraban por sus parientes fallecidos o esposos que habían ido a la guerra. Después del regreso de los últimos, las esposas mostraban las botellas llenas de lágrimas como prueba de su amor. 11. Muñecas médicas chinas, siglo XVII-XX Durante varios siglos, los médicos chinos, que solo podían ser hombres, tenían prohibido tocar a sus pacientes de alto rango. Por lo tanto, para el diagnóstico se utilizaban muñecas especiales de marfil. Con la ayuda de estas muñecas, las mujeres nobles mostraban qué y dónde les dolía. 12. Anuncio de la venta de esclavos “GRAN VENTA DE ESCLAVOS 10 de enero de 1855 3 hombres de entre 20 y 26 años, fuertes, sanos. 1 mujer, Sally, 42 años, gran cocinera. 1 chica, Lize, 23 años con un bebé de 6 meses. 1 hombre, 52 años, buen perrero. 17 chicos de 12 a 20 años, excelentes. John Carter, Esq. Provincia de Clarksburg, Lewis County, Kentucky”. Solo un par de cientos de años atrás en los EE.UU. (y no solo allí) vendían personas vivas como ganado, y este anuncio no se destacaba entre otros que ofrecían, por ejemplo, un servicio de peluquería o la compra de un conjunto de muebles usados. 13. Cajas fuertes para los difuntos, siglo XIX Puede parecer que los ataúdes de hierro están diseñados para mantener a los muertos en sus tumbas, pero la causa de su popularidad en el Reino Unido a principios del siglo XIX no tiene nada que ver con los ciudadanos supersticiosos. Los comenzaron a hacer con el fin de proteger a los muertos de los ladrones de cadáveres que secuestraban ilegalmente los cuerpos y los vendían a los médicos para autopsias y conferencias sobre anatomía. 14. Motocicleta-coche fúnebre Un residente del condado de Norfolk conectó una plataforma de madera a la motocicleta Norton, a la cual colocó un ataúd vacío con fines ilustrativos. El hombre quería proporcionar una forma barata y rápida de trasladar los cuerpos de los fallecidos al lugar del entierro. Con el tiempo, otras empresas crearon motocicletas — coches fúnebres, pero este invento casero decidieron no utilizarlo, ya que fue considerado potencialmente inseguro. ¿Qué artefacto te provocó piel de gallina?

Meth " I Love You" Powerviolence Usa 2018
1. Opasque Realese
2. Shuttering Impulse
3. Prayer in Shallow Water
4. Ascend and Dispose
5. You are Home

Seis músicos procedentes de Chicago que nos ofrecen Un Powerviolence bastante original. El powerviolence es un subgénero musical del thrashcore, el grindcore y el hardcore punk que tiene sus orígenes a finales de la década de 1980. La banda Infest de fines de la década de 1980, de hardcore punk, sería la que influyó fuertemente en el sonido de este tipo de música.
Básicamente consiste en un hardcore extremo y experimental, agresivo, sarcástico, rápido. Tomando las variantes mas extremas y agresivas dentro del Hardcore Punk creando un sonido crudo poco trabajado, extremadamente rápido, desordenado y dejando mas a un lado lo fuerte, brutal, técnico y pesado para centrarse en un "ruido" mucho más escandaloso. Tiene voces extremadamente gritadas, acompañada de guturales (no necesariamente guturales tipo death metal, sino algo más característico y propio del estilo). El estilo vocal que nos presentan bandas como Spazz o Lack of Interest ha sido descrito como "voz de gorila" o "voz de bulldog". En ocasiones se deja la velocidad para introducir partes extremadamente lentas, sin dejar de lado la distorsión ni los gritos, esto hace recordar al sludge metal. Las canciones powerviolence difícilmente duran más de 40 segundos, aunque la de esta banda de Chicago tienen una duración los cinco temas de dos minutos.
Nos vamos a encontrar dos voces una potente pero no gutural y otra que suena muy desquiciada, los ritmos atonales y las distorsiones son siempre agudas hasta hacerte romper el tímpano, algo común desde el primer tema Opasque Realese hasta Shuttering Impulse que tiene esa distorsión aguda que podría romper un cristal, quieren provocar, lo consiguen a medias.
¿ Fuentes creativas? Sin lugar a dudas los Spazz, que son los pioneros del Powerviolence y a la vez la banda mas creativa que hubo dentro de este subgénero. Dicen que hay pinceladas de Black en su música, yo no las veo en ningún momento lo que si veo es Hardcore en su estado mas primitivo y mucho Noise y hasta Sludge como en Prayer in Shallow Water.
Pero ya aviso, dentro de este ep lo que hay es mucho ruido y pocas nueces. Es un trabajo experimental con poca música y mucha distorsión e introducción típica del Noise e incluso del Drone, atonal y sin gusto alguno que el oyente acabara pasando de largo.
Por fin un tema de Powerviolence como es Ascend and Dispose, distorsión máxima, groove, dos voces guturales en esta ocasión dobladas, pero una estructura lineal, la suciedad y la contundencia de su música no puede enmascarar su falta de técnica y su nula creatividad, base rítmica casi inexistente y muchas mezclas en el estudio de grabación de sonidos atonales, agudos y molestos para el oyente que después son casi imposibles de llevar a cabo en el directo. You are Home es el único tema que me dice mas o menos algo porque intentan escarbar en los orígenes del Grindcore e incluso rozan el Crossover pero siempre tirando del Sludge, muy espectacular el envoltorio pero cuando abres el paquete te llevas una decepción.

Y es que la colocación de cámaras de videos y sistemas de alarmas no han dado resultado positivo para disminuir los casos de atracos y robos contra los establecimientos comerciales, principalmente los colmaderos o detallistas.

En casi todos los barrios populares de esta ciudad, los negocios al detalle han tenido que recurrir a la colocación de hierros.

“A pesar de esos hierros que usted ve ahí, a este negocio, los amigos de lo ajeno lo han visitado en varias ocasiones en un año”, expresó Germán Maríñez Collado, propietario del colmado R y R, del sector Pueblo Nuevo.

En ese sector, más del 98 % de los negocios tienen protección en hierro, muchas veces solo con la alguna ventanilla disponible para entregarle a los clientes los artículos que compran y las devueltas que les corresponden.

Miguel Ventura, es otro comerciante del sector Nibaje, que reportó tres asaltos a su negocio ubicado en la calle principal de ese barrio. “Las autoridades policiales tienen que aumentar el patrullaje, ya que cuando los ladrones ven a los agentes policiales no se atreven a cometer fechorías”, manifestó Ventura.

Ante la ocurrencia de robos y atracos, moradores de esta ciudad declararon que han dejado de visitar algunos establecimientos de diversión en horas de la noche. Luis Alberto Estévez, dijo que tiene meses que no visita ningún centro de diversión.

          Vic-Maui Race Underway      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
J/122E Joy Ride sailing Vic-Maui RaceJ/122E JOYRIDE Amongst The Leaders!
(Victoria, British Columbia, Canada)- The Victoria to Maui International Yacht Race, hosted by the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club and the Lahaina Yacht Club, got underway July 1st. The 2,308nm course goes from Victoria, British Columbia to Maui, Hawaii.

The lone J/Crew sailing the race is the gorgeous J/122E JOYRIDE from Seattle, WA skippered by her owner- John Murkowski. They are one of the most successful offshore racing teams in the Pacific Northwest.

Day 1- The Start
And they’re off! At 10:00 am Pacific Time, the 2018 Vic-Maui fleet sailed through the start line outside Victoria Harbour, tacking into a stiff, building westerly breeze.

In the days leading up to the start, the sun broke out just in time for the fleet Send-off Party that rocked the Wharf Street docks on June 29. Transient orcas (killer whales) patrolled the entrance to Victoria’s Harbour on a damp June 30.

Today, July 1st (Canada Day) dawned sunny, breezy, and warm (if not exactly tropical).  The Race Committee vessel hung on a tenuous anchor off Brotchie Ledge, while the spectator boat fleet circled and a drone flew overhead.  The VIP spectator boat Midnight Sun elegantly patrolled the spectator boat zone.  

After the start, the J/122E JOY RIDE pressed hard going west into the Straits of Juan de Fuca.

Eight hours into the race, the fleet was working its way towards the big left turn at Cape Flattery, and the open Pacific Ocean, where the adventure truly begins.  Weather systems including the North Pacific High, and a developing Low pressure trough, lie ahead in wait.

Cape Flattery, WADay 2- Past Cape Flattery and Onto the Rhumb Line
After a great run down Strait of Juan de Fuca, most of the fleet rounded Cape Flattery before the sun set and got to see a sight that most people never get to. Cape Flattery is the very northwest corner of the lower 48 states and a major landmark. But, it is very remote by land and very few sailors venture out into the open Pacific.

After rounding Cape Flattery, the fleet starts sailing down the rhumb line, more or less, depending on breeze strength and direction around the notoriously wobbly Pacific High. Roll Call happens at 1200 hrs Hawaiian Time (1500 hrs Pacific Time). Today the fleet is relatively close together about 160 miles offshore of Ocean Park, Washington on Willapa Bay.

The weather pattern is setting up for boats to ride a path between the Pacific High hovering to the northwest of its usual location, and a Low pressure zone along the Washington Coast that caused the cool weather and rain before the start. If this weather pattern holds, it may result in a short, sweet, fast ride to Hawaii. But, the only thing constant about weather is change and the sailors will need to put the beautiful sight of Cape Flattery behind them and focus on figuring out what their weather crystal ball is telling them.

The match race between the two leading boats in Racing 1 is a tight one. Firefly and the J/122E JOY RIDE are taking turns with the lead. At roll call, it was Firefly with a 10nm lead. But, leads are fleeting, and it remains to be determined which has the right weather track.

Weather strategy- VicMaui RaceDay 2- Weather strategy update
Here is a quick primer on weather systems in the Northeast Pacific Ocean, between Cape Flattery and Hawaii (courtesy of David Sutcliffe).

1) The dominant summer pattern in the Northeast Pacific Ocean is usually the North Pacific High.  Winds blow in a clockwise rotation around the High that is usually centered somewhere North of Hawaii and West of the US West Coast, say about 40N – 150W.  The High usually spreads over a very large area of the ocean and wobbles around, expanding and contracting, usually without the center moving too far.  Sunny and warm!

2) Temperate zone low pressure weather systems travel from West to East in the temperate zone which technically is between about 23 degrees and 66 degrees North latitude.  Put another way, this zone is roughly between the Southern tip of Baja Mexico and the Bering Strait off Alaska.  In summer, the lows usually travel in the higher or more Northern areas of this zone, and are usually deflected above the High.  Winds blow in a counter clockwise direction around the lows.  Cloudy and rainy!

3) In summer, the High usually deflects Low pressure systems up into the Gulf of Alaska, keeping nice summer conditions over the West Coast of North America.  When a high and a low system press against each other, there is usually a squeeze zone with stronger winds between the two systems.  Breezy and lumpy!

4) Trade winds usually blow from the Northeast or East between about 30 degrees and 5 degrees North latitude.  This band is roughly between the USA-Mexico border and just North of the Equator.  Trade winds usually blow steadily, but El Nino and La Nina cycles affect them, and there will usually be some squalls.  The bottom of the High and the North edge of the trade winds blend together over the ocean.  Champagne sailing!

5) Tropical Low pressure systems usually develop off the coast of Central America, and some strengthen to tropical storm or hurricane strength.  As with other lows, the wind blows counter clockwise around these lows.  These systems usually move Northwest to the open ocean area West of Baja Mexico before weakening and dissipating far from land.  Sometimes, they curve North and East to make landfall in Mexico, and occasionally they travel West towards or all the way to Hawaii.  Pay attention!

So it’s all very simple, or maybe not!  A dozen mentions of "usually".  Now, imagine being the navigator onboard an ocean racing boat, sleep-deprived, peering at a laptop screen below-deck at “oh-dark-hundred” (0200 hrs local time) while the boat rolls, pitches and heaves.  Your information is limited to weather forecasts and observations that can be obtained over a very low-bandwidth and sometimes expensive communications link using either marine radio or satellite systems.  Nothing is certain, and reality often doesn’t look like the textbook said it would.  The rest of the crew each have their own opinions (of course!), and then there are the armchair quarterbacks back home on dry land, cozy, warm and dry, sipping their coffees.  Which way to go?  What to worry about?  How best to get to Hawaii safely and fast? One eye to weather!

Day 3- Weather update
Ocean weather, never a dry topic, is getting more interesting - we have a High, we have a Low, which way to go, don’t you know?   "Green eggs and ham, Sam I am" (Dr Seuss, of course).

The North Pacific High is established and centered at about 43N 155W. It’s strong – about 1036mb – which is good, and about 600-800nm in diameter. There is a Low developing about 500nm West of Vancouver Island.  A squeeze zone should develop between the High and the Low.  Interesting!

Tue Jul 3, 0800PDT
The High is forecast to drift West while the Low is forecast to move SE and should be affecting the fleet from about Tuesday evening (tonight) through to Thursday morning.  Most boats should see sustained wind speeds in the 15-25 knot range, while some may see up to 30 knots, bordering on gale force.  Wind angles will change as the Low crosses the track, leading to a flurry of sail changes, and once settled the angles should be behind the beam and very favorable for fast sailing. Hopefully, fast!

The fleet is currently sailing very close to the rhumb line, the shortest route to Hawaii.  Shortest, but not necessarily the fastest.  The High is likely to move farther West than usual, and combined with the Low it will be very attractive for the fleet to sail West of the rhumb line. Might be a risky move!

VicMaui Race trackerWed Jul 4, 1600PDT
This is not the textbook route to Hawaii!  The risk of being West of the rhumb line is getting swallowed up into the middle of the High if/when it comes back to its usual position.  There is little to no wind in the middle of a High.  On the other hand, trying to go East of the rhumbline means beating into the Low and possible light and variable winds when it dissipates.  So, the navigators will be thinking this routing decision out carefully.  And, there is always the possibility, or probability, that the actual weather will be different from the expected weather.  A conservative strategy might be to sail on the favorable side of the Low, stay as close to the rhumb line as practical, sail less distance, stay in the squeeze breeze, and take less risk of getting becalmed.  Sounds easy!

Beyond the next few days and the passage of the Low, the trade winds ahead are looking good.  Off to the southeast, there is some tropical system activity to keep an eye on, with TS Emilia reportedly dissipated and TS/Hurricane Fabio strengthening and forecast to dissipate before affecting the Vic-Maui fleet’s probable track to Hawaii.    

Day 3- Who Stole the Wind?
After a day and half of blast reaching in conditions best described as “not martini weather”, the fleet has hit the wall. A Low pressure zone (described above) moved over the fleet, substantially altering the weather and putting the brakes on the wind and boat speed.

The relief from turbulent seas and stress on the boat is welcome. One boat reports that everyone is eating again and, for a lucky few, the daily constitutional has resumed. But, having to fight their way through a region of relative calm is not.

At Roll Call, the boats are generally about 270 miles west of Tillamook, Oregon.  The leaders in Racing 1 have slowed from 8 kts to 5 kts and the boats in Racing 2 who are 40 miles behind have put the brakes on slowing to less than 2 kts. Ouch!

In Racing 1, Murkowski's J/122E JOY RIDE sits in second just 16nm back. The boats in Racing 2 are essentially in a dead-heat with all within a few miles of each other.

The next trick will be who is best positioned to get the wind first as the Low pressure system moves toward the east and the prospect of wind filling in behind it. Will that be Firefly who are positioned a bit to the east, or will it be JOY RIDE and the other Division 2 boats positioned well to the west of the rhumb line. And for the armchair sailors taking bets, it would be wise to consider that multiple winning navigator Brad Baker is calling the weather shots on Firefly.

The over-arching concern is what happens next with the experienced veterans knowing that the fastest route to Maui is not usually the straight line.

Oh and did we mention Hurricane Fabio? Fabio (who makes up these names?) is churning away well south of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico and is forecast to dissipate well before the fleet arrives. But, big Low pressure systems coming from the south usually disrupt the trade winds.

Whatever happens, the navigators and weather dudes aboard the boats are going to earn their keep this year.

Day 4- Three Big Things to Think About
This is not a textbook year!  The weather situation for this Vic-Maui is developing into a true ocean racer’s challenge, where seemingly small decisions and a few miles one way or the other early in the race could make for big gains and losses.  That doesn’t mean it’s all on the navigators, who do have their work seriously cut out for them, as it’s also on the whole team who will have to sail the boat very well and work hard with sail changes, trim and transitions to get ahead or stay ahead. Here are three scenarios:

1. Wednesday & Thursday
The near term weather is all about getting past the Low that is currently (0900 PDT) centered about 42N 133W.
- All of the boats appear to be going over the Low, varying distances West of the rhumb line.
- There is a squeeze zone with strong winds, possibly to gale force, predicted.  Careful!
- Leaders Firefly and JOY RIDE appear to be splitting this morning, with Firefly making a move further West and JOY RIDE staying the course.  With over twenty miles of lateral separation, and the passage of the Low to be threaded, the risk/reward is likely to be significant for both boats.  If one does a better job of passing the Low, they could stretch that into a very significant lead for the next stage of the race.
- The Low may drift North, back across the fleet’s track, potentially catching the tail-runners in lighter, variable winds.  Sailing fast, now, is especially important for these boats.

2. Thursday & Friday
After navigating the Low, the teams will move on to sailing around the High and setting up for crossing the ridge which typically extends to the SE from the center of the High.  The models show a significant “plateau” developing on that ridge, and winds would typically be much lighter in such a feature.  Once again, teams will have to evaluate the risk/return on miles sailed vs. wind speed/angle, and decide where to go to avoid the plateau and to stay in good breeze.  Having parked on a similar plateau (making just 65 miles in 24 hours) in 2006, and had boats pass us on both sides (ouch!), I am going to watch this potential trap with great interest.

3. Saturday
The fleet should still be sailing around the High that should be centered about 40N 165W.  It is predicted to continue to be strong at about 1036mb.  One strategy could be to sail an isobar contour line around the high, say at about 1026-1028mb, to stay away from the center, sail in good pressure, and be closer to the rhumb line.  All the while not getting stuck on any “flat” spots.  Lead boats should be looking ahead to curve around the bottom right hand shoulder of the high and set up for calling the port gybe lay line to Maui.  Calling a layline from 800 to 1,000nm out!

Beyond the One-Two-Three scenarios above, the trade winds ahead are looking good.  Champagne sailing ahead!  Off to the Southeast, there is some tropical system activity to keep an eye on, with TS Emilia reportedly dissipated and TS/Hurricane Fabio forecast to peak and then dissipate without significantly affecting the Vic-Maui fleet’s probable track to Hawaii.   

Going out on the proverbial limb, I would say the first finishers could arrive in Maui on July 12 or 13.  Or not.  Time will tell.

          ¿Por qué roban y para qué sirve el material radiactivo?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

El pasado fin de semana el Gobierno mexicano alertó sobre el robo de un contenedor metálico que lleva fuente radiactiva, la cual contiene elementos como iterbio(Yb), cobalto(Co) e iridio (Ir), que pueden provocar daños a la salud si no se utiliza de la forma correcta.

En ocasiones anteriores, corporaciones de seguridad ya han emitido alertas similares por robos de dichos materiales, pero ¿Para qué cometen estos hurtos? ¿En qué los pueden utilizar?

Ricardo Méndez Fragoso, académico de la Facultad de Ciencias de la UNAM, explicó para el portal de Verne que “Son de uso médico, industrial o científico. Si quisieran venderlos, se les pediría un certificado con los que no cuentan (los ladrones) y terminan por abandonarlos”.

Las versiones de que este material puede ser usado para fabricar armas e incluso, una bomba nuclear, son falsas, así lo aseguró Ricardo de la Cruz Musalem, director general de Protección Civil de la Segob.

“Es totalmente falso, el material radiactivo en esas cantidades sólo puede tener usos industriales”, declaró para el mismo portal.

Cabe destacar que cualquier material radiactivo puede ser peligroso para la salud; según explican los datos de la Organización Mundial de Salud que, si no se hace un uso adecuado este y se está expuesto al material por varias horas, se pueden provocar quemaduras, daños en la piel y no se descarta los posibles afectaciones a largo plazo como el crecimiento de células malas .

Os garotos, que tem entre 11 e 16 anos, e o técnico ficaram 9 dias sem comer até serem encontrados por dois mergulhadores ingleses dentro da caverna inundada. A complexa operação de resgate teve a participação de 90 mergulhadores, sendo 50 estrangeiros e 40 tailandeses. No total, mais de mil pessoas fizeram parte dos trabalhos. Resgatados todos os 13 presos em caverna na Tailândia Entenda o caso No dia 23 de junho, 12 meninos de um time de futebol e o técnico faziam um passeio de bicicleta e entraram na caverna para se proteger do mau tempo. A chuva ficou intensa, e a água subiu muito rápido, deixando o grupo preso. Eles ficaram isolados e sem comida por 9 dias. Em 2 de julho, mergulhadores ingleses encontraram o grupo, debilitado e com muita fome, a 4 km da entrada da caverna e entre 800 m e 1 km de profundidade. O resgate durou 3 dias. No domingo (8) e na segunda, foram retirados quatro garotos em cada dia. Nesta terça, foram resgatados mais quatro meninos e o técnico. Cada garoto foi conduzido por pelo menos 2 mergulhadores e usou máscara facial de oxigênio durante o percurso até a entrada da caverna, que dura 6 horas. Vários trechos são muito estreitos, com água turva e baixa visibilidade. Os resgatados foram levados de helicóptero para hospital, onde vão ficar em quarentena e observação. Voluntários comemoram retirada de meninos e do técnico na caverna Tham Luang, no norte da Tailândia, nesta terça-feira (10) Reuters Operação delicada A dramática situação dos meninos presos na caverna causou comoção internacional. Uma complexa operação de resgate precisou ser organizada para retirá-los da caverna. Termina resgate de grupo preso em caverna na Tailândia A missão era difícil: os estreitos, lamacentos e inundados caminhos eram um desafio até mesmo para mergulhadores experientes, que levavam cerca de seis horas para percorrer 4 km até onde estava o grupo, em uma encosta cercada por água. Um dos mergulhadores que levou suprimentos aos meninos morreu sem oxigênio quando voltava para a entrada da caverna. Voluntários celebram resgate de 12 jovens e treinador de caverna na Tailândia As equipes de resgate chegaram a considerar tirá-los pela superfície da montanha, mas não encontraram cavidades na parte superior da caverna. A profundidade no ponto em que estavam era grande demais – entre 800 m e 1 km – e ainda havia risco de desmoronamento caso o solo fosse perfurado. Para facilitar o resgate, bombas drenavam a água initerruptamente, mas os esforços tinham pouco resultado. Apesar dos milhões de litros de água bombeadas, o nível recuava lentamente. O governo tailandês também considerou esperar meses até que a água baixasse, já que a saída pela água seria muito arriscada – alguns dos meninos não sabiam nadar e nenhum deles sabia técnicas de mergulho. Mas, durante o fim de semana, a chuva deu uma trégua e a operação de resgate foi colocada em prática. A queda no nível de oxigênio na cavidade subterrânea e a elevação do dióxido de carbono também pressionaram as equipes a antecipar o resgate. Polícia protege com guarda-chuvas saída de resgatado em caverna na Tailândia, na terça-feira (10) Sakchai Lalit/ AP O entorno da caverna começou a ser esvaziado ainda no fim da noite de sábado (7). Os mais de mil jornalistas que acompanham o resgate tiveram que se afastar da região. Nesta terça, um jornalista estrangeiro foi detido pela polícia por colocar um drone para sobrevoar a entrada da caverna. Tudo foi feito para preservar os meninos, seu treinador e suas famílias. Conforme as vítimas eram salvas, os nomes não eram divulgados nem para os parentes. Questões culturais, relacionadas ao respeito, explicam essa decisão. Algum tempo depois que os últimos meninos e o treinador voltaram à superfície, o médico e os fuzileiros navais que entraram na caverna para auxiliar nos resgates também saíram das galerias subterrâneas. Rachapol Ngamgrabuan, governador da província Chiang Rai e coordenador do esforço de resgate, não escondeu a emoção com o sucesso da operação. "Este é um evento importante na minha vida. É algo de que me lembrarei. Houve momentos em que chorei. [Estou] Feliz. Muito feliz em ver o amor de todos os tailandeses", afirmou. Voluntários e tailandeses celebraram o anúncio do bem-sucedido resgate com palmas e buzinaço. Líderes internacionais, como o presidente dos EUA, Donald Trump, e a premiê do Reino Unido, Theresa May, também comemoraram o sucesso da ação. Infográfico mostra como foi organizado o resgate de grupo preso em caverna na Tailândia Karina Almeida, Juliane Monteiro e Betta Jaworski/G1 Atendimento aos meninos Ao sair da caverna, os resgatados foram atendidos em um hospital improvisado. Em seguida, foram transferidos de ambulância para um helicóptero e foram levados ao hospital da província de Chiang Rai, que fica a cerca de 70 km. Nesta terça, houve certa demora em transferir os meninos para o helicóptero, mas três ambulâncias foram vistas deixando o local, de acordo com a BBC. O primeiro-ministro tailandês, Prayut Chan-o-chau, afirmou que os meninos receberam ansiolíticos (calmantes) antes de serem levados à superfície, segundo o “The Guardian”. Nos últimos dias, resgatados foram vistos chegar à superfície em macas. As oito primeiras crianças salvas permanecem internadas, mas passam bem. Elas estão em quarentena para evitar alguma infecção, já que a saúde do grupo ficou fragilizada por causa do longo período de jejum forçado.

          Fact or Fallacy: What’s the Best Way to Improve Campus Wi-Fi Performance?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Fact or Fallacy: What’s the Best Way to Improve Campus Wi-Fi Performance? eli.zimmerman_9856 Mon, 07/09/2018 - 11:29

Keeping Wi-Fi networks running smoothly is a priority for campus IT teams, and they are doing so in an increasingly complex environment.

From robots to rogue devices, let’s examine a few myths and realities related to performance, security and research, along with real-world examples from Boston College and the Georgia Institute of Technology.

SIGN UP: Get more news from the EdTech newsletter in your inbox every two weeks!

Fact: Wireless Site Surveys Are a Must

Updating your wireless site survey is critical to ensuring strong Wi-Fi signals, in part because improvements in Wi-Fi technology tend to change utilization of the radio spectrum.

Deploying access points without such a survey can lead to unnecessary costs (if overprovisioning occurs) or unsatisfactory performance (if staff deploy too few APs or place them in unsuitable locations).

It is well worth the expense to employ a professional to conduct a survey before you kick off your Wi-Fi upgrade.

Fallacy: Insufficient Bandwidth Is Usually Behind Connectivity Issues

To be sure, an overtaxed network is often the reason for poor Wi-Fi, but not always. Sometimes the culprit is the one you least suspect.

At Boston College, Senior Network Systems Engineer Brian David had a case in which the physical space was the problem. A faculty member lost connectivity frequently, with a strong signal one minute and a total disconnection the next.

David was troubleshooting the issue when he noticed that each time a disconnection occurred, the nearby elevator bell rang. Mystery solved: The elevator shaft was located between the faculty member’s office and the AP, so every time the elevator stopped at the instructor’s floor, it completely blocked the signal

David encountered similar issues in a classroom equipped with a sliding chalkboard. Whenever the instructor slid the chalkboard up, students lost the signal. In both cases, moving APs was an easy fix

Fallacy: Wi-Fi Networks Don’t Need Special Attention

In addition to the usual attacks on wired networks, Wi-Fi networks are subject to unique avenues of attack. Due to their nature, Wi-Fi networks lack some of the inherent protections that wired networks enjoy.

In the wired world, for example, intercepting or inserting malicious traffic involves hands-on access to cables or switches. Not so in a wireless environment, where all an attacker needs is a smartphone.

Rogue APs can impersonate legitimate networks with a goal of stealing connection credentials from authorized users. A distributed denial of service attack can overwhelm captive portals. 

There is a silver lining, however. These types of attacks all require a physical presence in an area served by the target Wi-Fi network. This limits the threat, and tools designed to detect suspicious Wi-Fi behavior can minimize it even further.

Fact: Rogue Devices Can Reduce Wi-Fi Performance

In essence, the radio frequency spectrum that Wi-Fi networks use is finite. There’s only so much bandwidth in a given area. It’s similar to trying to have a conversation with a lot of people in the room: If everyone talks at once, communication is difficult. 

Wi-Fi acts in much the same manner. It uses radio frequencies that do not require Federal Communications Commission broadcast licenses.

These frequencies are commonly used by other technologies, too, including rogue devices (think old wireless phones, lighting and door control systems, microwave ovens and even car alarms). Any device that doesn’t cooperate can cause interference and degrade performance for both the rogue and official networks.

Fact: Researchers Want to Use Wi-Fi in New and Unexpected Ways

Research universities add another dimension, as researchers often find innovative ways to push the limits of wireless networks. If IT is not engaged, this can result in deployment of rogue devices.

Matt Sanders, Georgia Tech’s wireless services manager and the director of research operations in the Institute for People and Technology, shares insight into supporting research that uses production wireless networks.

“We do our best to run a network that works for everyone, but researchers and entrepreneurs test us and give an important opportunity to understand how the service needs to evolve to meet future needs,” he says. 

For example, Sanders’s team worked with researchers developing the Robotarium, a research project that lets them experiment remotely on a fleet of hundreds of small robots in a 12-foot-by-14-foot arena.

From a networking perspective, Sanders says, the collaboration was valuable. “Their research involves hundreds of moving devices using a limited number of Wi-Fi frequencies in a very small space, which is an opportunity for poor performance in the lab and surrounding areas.” 

To meet the needs of the Robotarium, the team used a variation of its high-density wireless solution for classrooms that included directional antennas on multiple APs and an optimized channel and power plan.

The solution eliminated the need to introduce a competing wireless network, and that reduced the lab’s impact on neighboring wireless users.

The wireless team also analyzed network flows and spectrum utilization, making it possible for researchers to optimize robot configuration and communication to reduce power requirements, scale to greater sensor data payloads and support even larger numbers of robots.

Fact: The Pace of Change Is Accelerating

Most IT administrators constantly seek to refine existing skills and add new ones, and there is ample opportunity to do so today. To that end, it is useful to consult with peers to see what challenges they’re facing and what’s coming down the pike. 

One easy way to do so is through surveys such as the annual State of ResNet Report from the Association for College and University Technology Advancement and the Association of College and University Housing Officers-International, which gathers data from 320 institutions.

The 2017 survey added new categories to watch, such as wearables, fitness trackers and drones — all signs of the growing Internet of Things, which will tax campus Wi-Fi even further. Tapping into such research helps IT staff anticipate risks, deploy mitigating strategies and keep networks performing well.

OT --- I bought two *lots in the desert - 1.8 acres each - side by side for a total of 3.6 acres - for a total of $2200. (penny stock profits) I have survey steaks on each of the 4 corners. We often go out there during the perseid meteor shower.

The last time we went out there was just before one of my sons moved to Oregon. One of his friends is a rocket scientist that works for JPL NASA. He brought out a couple of drones and did a flyover.
The drone that took these pics was a more expensive one --- had GPS stabilization - so when the wind is blowing its able to maintain position.

Anyway -- here's a few pics.




if you look carefully you will see out camp in the upper left hand area in pic below.






* Originally I bought 5 lots in this area for a total of ~ $10k. I sold one for $15k and still own the other 4. Then I bought another 2.5 acre lot with water and power at the street for $3k and sold it for $20k and used the profits to buy a lot across the street from it for $10k which is contiguous to another lot I own so I have 5 contiguous acres with water and power at the street. Then I bought another 5 acres with no power and water for $2500.

bottom line -- paid out a total of ~$23000 for 8 parcels of land in this area and sold 2 for $35000 and holding 6 for free (except taxes).

I love penny stocks -- (and penny properties). Have others as well in California, Nevada, and Idaho -- but enuf said.

Sorry if this has annoyed anyone :(

          Un robo paraliza las excavaciones de Atapuerca      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Un robo en la zona de lavado de sedimentos de Atapuerca ha paralizado durante unas horas las excavaciones, ha informado uno de los codirectores del equipo de investigación, Eudald Carbonell. Los ladrones se han llevado dos bombas de agua que se utilizan para forzar el agua a la zona de lavado. Para el equipo de Atapuerca, lo más grave es que no se podrá lavar sedimentos durante horas y eso hará perder un tiempo en una campaña con una duración limitada a mes y medio. Carbonell, pide mayor conciencia social porque no es algo infrecuente que se produzca hurtos o robos de material en Atapuerca. De hecho, hace unos años ya se llevaron una bomba del río y, según otro de los codirectores, José María Bermúdez de Castro, él mismo ha tenido que acudir cuatro o cinco veces en los últimos años a denunciar robos o daños en material. Ha considerado que en este caso es «especialmente grave», porque el material se encontraba guardado en un contenedor metálico del Ejército, que los ladrones han reventado. El robo, que se ha producido esta noche pasada, se suma a los efectos de las tormentas de agua y granizo de la tarde de ayer. Prácticamente han paralizado también los trabajos en dos yacimientos: Galería y Cueva Fantasma, donde este año se trabaja por primera vez.

А также очень тихий двигатель и отсутствие освещения, которое может выдать местоположение дрона, и очень высокую проходимость! 
Из недостатков: дрон боится воды и из-за размера возникаю проблемы с преодолением веток и камней.

Por asaltos en villas de Casa de Campo, Policia Nacional tiene varios detenidos.
La Romana.-RD La Policía Nacional de la región Este, confirmó que durante la madrugada del sábado varios encapuchados asaltaron una familia en una villa del resort Casa de Campo, por cuyo hecho hay varios detenidos para fines de investigación.
Entre los detenidos figura el vigilante de la vivienda, Jovani Batista, quien supuestamente fue golpeado en la cabeza y despojado de su revólver calibre 38, según reveló Raisa Núñez, vocera de la institución.
“El caso lo investiga el Ministerio Público y la Policía, bajo la dirección del general Juan Pilarte Féliz”, agregó Núñez este lunes a los reporteros, sin ofrecer más detalles.
En el asalto los desconocidos cargaron con tres relojes Rolex, cuatro teléfonos, 50 mil pesos y 500 dólares en efectivo, de acuerdo con revelaciones hechas a Diario Libre.
Se supo, además, que el fiscal interino, Víctor Enrique Henríquez Gil, se trasladó hacia la villa Catalina 10, propiedad del señor Ricardo Zapata, de 51 años.
Los individuos neutralizaron primero al vigilante de la vivienda, luego penetraron “fuertemente armados”, tomaron como rehén a una persona y la obligaron a conducirlos hacia la habitación de Zapata, donde sustrajeron parte del botín.
Los ladrones escaparon en un carro Mercedes Benz y luego lo abandonaron dentro del complejo turístico.
“No les va a pasar nada, solo vinimos a robarle a los ricos”, habría dicho uno de los asaltantes.

          Hacker Selling Pentagon’s Killer Drone Manual on Dark Web for $150, Cheap      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast

A sensitive training manual for the U.S. military’s lethal MQ-9 Reaper UAV was put up for sale on an underground marketplace last month, after a hacker plucked it from an Air Force captain’s home network using a default password.

But despite an asking price of only $150, nobody was interested. “I’ve been personally investigating the  dark web for almost 15 years, and this is the first time I’ve uncovered documents of this nature,” says Andrei Barysevich, director of advanced collection at Recorded Future. “This type of document would typically be stolen by nation-state hackers. They wouldn’t be offering it on the dark web, and certainly not for $150.” Developed by General Atomics, the $64 million MQ-9 Reaper is the heavily-armed follow-on to the Predator drone, capable of dropping laser-guided bombs and Hellfire missiles on a target from an altitude of 50 thousand feet. In its unarmed configuration it’s been used by DHS for border surveillance and NASA for weather studies. The stolen Reaper training manual was titled “MQ-9A Reaper Block 5 (UHK97000-15) RPAMaintenance Event 1 Delta Training.” It was unclassified, but the cover bore a lengthy admonishment on safe handling.

“This information is furnished upon condition that it will not be  released to another nation without the specific authority” of the Air Force, the cover reads. “[T]he recipient will report promptly to the United States, any known or suspected compromises.” The document, and others like it, was pilfered from the home network of an Air Force captain in the 432d Aircraft Maintenance Squadron at Creech Air Force Base in Nevada, says Barysevich. A spokesperson for the squadron did not immediately respond to an inquiry from the Daily Beast on Tuesday. Barysevich says he spotted the manual for sale on a dark web forum in early June. Posing as a potential buyer, he struck up a conversation with the seller, who turned out to be part of a small hacking crew based in South America that specializes in low-hanging fruit. Armed with some rudimentary knowledge and an Internet-of-things search engine called Shodan, the hackers learned to exploit a feature in some Netgear home routers that allow a user to attach an external USB drive and load it up with documents, videos or music that they want to share across their home network. An extra option called the “Personal FTP Server” also makes the files accessible over the public Internet, so the user can fetch them from work or while traveling.If the user switches the Personal FTP Server option on, and doesn’t explicitly set a password for the server, all their shared files are left wide open to anybody who logs in as “anonymous,” with no password required — a mistake evidently made by the Air Force captain. “We reported this to DHS and various law enforcement agencies, and they forwarded the information to the U.S. Air Force,” says Barysevich.

@PanurgeJr

I'm totally correct as I think I am from my perspective.
You have the right to think that I'm a moron and that I'm saying stupid things etc...

I just say what I think, I analyze a situation and extract a conclusion from it WITHOUT letting my love for Nintendo takes over my judgement on whatever subject.

The biggest problem today is that the people (A big majority) don't have any personal opinions, they just repeat what their TVs say, what they read on reviews, what they heard here and there.

As an example, do you really think that Super mario Odyssey deserves 10/10, really all those sites with 10/10 by 100's...

http://www.metacritic.com/game/switch/super-mario-odyssey

Look now on the other side, the player side. You have a kind of good example to get a ratio of how people just follow what TV/INTERNET says and a really tiny part who just THINK by ITSELF...

You can put me on that second part, I don't repeat things from somebody else, I give MY OWN opinion. It hurts sometimes the "Nintendrones" little heart of them but only because they just refuse to be objective.

10/10 is the PINNACLE, the mark that shows you have reach heaven manner of speaking... I SWEAR, take Super Mario Odyssey take off Mario and replace him by a random character that nobody knows and give THE SAME GAME as it is to the SAME REVIEWERS you'll see that the marks will be totally different...

"Too often solutions are limited to ideas that can easily be shown to incrementally solve existing business goals. Crazy ideas, projects, or initiatives that don’t fit into the mold get rejected."
Domingo, ao ler "Trabalhadores “robot” nas fábricas da VW" e ao ver este vídeo:

"Para minimizar esta situação, a Volkswagen está a recorrer a exoesqueletos robóticos para suportar uma boa parte do esforço, poupando o físico dos funcionários. Não se trata de transformar os trabalhadores em verdadeiros “robocops”, mas tão só de lhes colocar à disposição uma estrutura articulada e assistida, que numa primeira fase facilite as operações realizadas com os braços em posição mais elevada."
Recordei esta figura daqui:
e previsões feitas nos últimos anos aqui no blogue:

"Há coisa de 1/2 anos li um artigo em que um técnico de uma empresa sueca líder no seu sector, a Permobil, discorria sobre as inovações que tinham em curso. Pensei o quão limitados e concentrados nas cadeiras de rodas estavam, na altura começava a ver os artigos sobre experiências com exoesqueletos, os artigos sobre drones controlados pelo pensamento, sobre os smartfones para os paralisados, sobre as aplicações para educar, treinar, ensinar, crianças especiais."

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Juntos, pero no revueltos

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

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

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

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

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

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

No todo es el dinero

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

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

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

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

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

¿Y España, cómo lo ve?

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

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

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

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

Las consecuencias

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

          A desperate hacker tried selling US military files for $150 — only to find no one wanted them      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache

  • A hacker who got ahold of sensitive US military documents tried to selling them on a dark-web forum, only to find no one wanted to buy them.
  • The sensitive information the hacker attempted to sell included a maintenance manual for the MQ-9A Reaper drone, a list of airmen assigned to a Reaper drone unit, manuals on how to suppress improvised explosive devices, and an M1 Abrams tank manual.
  • The hacker also tapped into live footage of surveillance cameras at the US-Mexico border and NASA bases, and an MQ-1 Predator flying over the Gulf of Mexico.
  • The hacker, who is believed to reside in a poverty-stricken country in South America, said his internet connection was slow and that because his bandwidth was limited, he did not download all the files prior to finding a willing buyer.
  • Undercover analysts alerted US officials and the vulnerable computers were taken offline, which inadvertently cut off the hacker's access to the files.
  • Analysts say they have a "good level of confidence" about the hacker's identity.

A hacker who got ahold of sensitive US military documents tried to sell them on a dark-web forum — only to find there were no buyers. The hacker was forced to lower his price to $150.

After a team of undercover analysts from Recorded Future's Insikt Group embedded themselves with users from the dark-web forum, they came across the hacker who exploited a simple vulnerability on Netgear-brand routers.

PMW: Fatah to US: “We don’t want your flour, your wheat, or your aid”
At a Fatah demonstration earlier this month, Abbas' deputy chairman of Fatah, Mahmoud Al-Aloul, announced that Palestinians don't want US aid, because US is "forming an alliance" with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, "the Israeli enemy":

Fatah Deputy Chairman and Fatah Central Committee member Mahmoud Al-Aloul: "Mahmoud Abbas has told him [Trump], and we are telling him, that America is not fit to be a sponsor of peace... This American Trump is forming an alliance with [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu, the Israeli enemy, who is sowing havoc and destruction over the land by expropriation and building settlements... We want freedom. We want independence. We want an end to the occupation. We don't want your flour, your wheat, or your aid." [Official PA TV, July 2, 2018]

Al-Aloul's statement rejecting US aid follows the passing of the Taylor Force Act in the US, in March 2018, which cuts almost all funding to the PA if it continues paying salaries to terrorist prisoners and allowances to families of so-called "Martyrs." The law was named after US citizen Taylor Force who was murdered by a Palestinian terrorist in Tel Aviv on March 8, 2016.

Al-Aloul's comments also follow the passing of a new Israeli law to deduct the amount of money the PA pays imprisoned terrorists and families of "Martyrs" from the tax money Israel collects for the PA, which was passed by the Israeli Parliament on July 2, 2018.
PMW: PA leader Nabil Shaath: Australia is “worthy of being spat on”
PA Chairman Abbas’ advisor Nabil Shaath: "This filthy talk of ‘the criminals’ in connection with our Martyrs and prisoners – while they are our heroes, the heroes of self-sacrifice and the candles of freedom. They cannot be compared to the Israeli criminals in Israel’s prisons... Australia’s decision [to stop] transferring $10 million angered me greatly... It transferred [the aid to the UN]... so that it would not serve for payment of the salaries of the [prisoners and Martyrs’] families. In other words, the truth is they are worthy of being spat on. You [Australians] are the servants of the US… I don’t want your 10 million, I don’t want to chase after them." [Official PA TV, Topic of the Day, July 3, 2018] Nabil Shaath is PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’ advisor on Foreign Affairs and International Relations Australia cuts direct aid to the PA - Australia announced on July 2, 2018, that it is ceasing its direct aid to the PA, and will transfer aid through the UN. Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop explained that Australia unsuccessfully sought confirmation from the PA that the aid was not going to pay terrorists. Bishop added: "Any assistance provided by the PLO to those convicted of politically motivated violence is an affront to Australian values and undermines the prospect of meaningful peace between Israel and the Palestinians." PMW has led the exposure of the salaries paid by the PA to terrorists and their families.


Father of American Victim of Palestinian Terror Calls New US, Israeli Laws Penalizing PA ‘a Good Beginning’
The recent passage of laws in both the US and Israel penalizing the Palestinian Authority (PA) over its payments to terrorists and their families marked “a good beginning, but there is much more to be done,” the father of an American military veteran who was killed in a stabbing attack in Tel Aviv two years ago told The Algemeiner on Monday.

Stuart Force, the father of the late Taylor Force, traveled to Israel to attend last week’s Knesset vote on a bill modeled on a US law — named after his West Point graduate son — that was approved by Congress and signed by President Donald Trump in March limiting American aid to the PA.

“Watching the legislation’s passage in the Knesset was a very emotional and special time for me,” Force said. “I feel that the resolve shown by both countries to address this part of the war on terror will provide a stimulus for nations worldwide to look at where their humanitarian aid actually goes.”

“If it cannot be shown that the intended recipients of our assistance are receiving it, then it should be withheld until it can,” he continued. “Something is terribly wrong when the leaders of terrorism are living like wealthy warlords, with their ‘subjects’ having no hope for a better future.”



JCPA: Economics Won’t Help. The Palestinians Will Continue with Terror Attacks
In any case, the chance that economic temptations will lead to a change in Palestinian national goals is very slight as long as the Palestinian system is not led by a political movement that gives priority to the welfare of its citizens. That movement must recognize that to provide for their economic needs, it must end its commitment to the struggle against Zionism, which is translated as yielding the “Right of Return” and deciding to forego the establishment of a Palestinian state in all of mandatory Palestine.

The approach of the U.S. administration criticizes the Palestinians and Hamas, in particular, for “not acting according to the needs of the Palestinian people.” This reaction indicates a lack of understanding for Palestinian priorities and superimposes upon them a Western order of priorities, which sees in the pursuit of happiness and prosperity as all people’s solitary goal.

The Palestinians explain to the world that they have a different order of priorities, including paying salaries to terrorists, “Return Marches,” the destruction of a critical truck crossing for goods, and the right to forgo both human life and prosperity. However, it appears that the Americans, Europeans, and many Israelis are not getting these messages. They continue to believe that economic considerations can lead the Palestinians to change their anti-peace policies.

We must not diminish the importance of investing in the advancement of the Palestinian economy and economic cooperation with them. These are based on ethical motives – from the desire to bring economic prosperity to our neighbors to advancing familiarity between both peoples. We must hope that in the end this will motivate the Palestinian to change their order of priorities.
IDF stops boat seeking to break Gaza blockade
The Israeli Navy on Tuesday apprehended a Gazan boat with approximately eight people on board that attempted to breach the legal naval blockade. The apprehension took place without incident.

After the boat and the Gazans on board are searched, the boat will be towed to the Israeli Navy base in Ashdod.

The IDF assigned medical personnel to treat those on board who requirws medical assistance.

This is the second time in the past two months that the Hamas terror organization has attempted to violate the legal naval blockade and has paid Gazan civilians to participate.

The IDF stated that the naval blockade is a "necessary and legal security measure that has been recognized repeatedly by the world and the UN as important to the security of the State of Israel and its maritime borders that protect Israeli civilians in the face of terror and smuggling of weapons."
Exclusive: Islamic cyber terrorists trying to target infrastructure
Though they have not yet succeeded, Islamic cyber terrorists are increasing their efforts to carry out cyberattacks against Western countries infrastructure.

This is one of the concerning conclusions of a report obtained exclusively by The Jerusalem Post.

The report was issued by the IDC Herzliya International Institute for Counter-Terrorism’s (ICT) cyberdesk, with input from ICT deputy director Dr. Eitan Azani and cyberdesk coordinator Nadine Liv.

To date, most cyberterror attacks have consisted of defacing target websites and posting embarrassing messages.

But the report discussed “the possibility of terrorist organizations acquiring offensive capabilities on the Internet, hiring hackers for this purpose, or receiving assistance from terror- sponsoring countries” as a serious future danger.

Further, it said that, “the monitoring of the accounts of IS [Islamic State]-supporting hackers indicates that there is a desire to develop these offensive capabilities.”
Iran’s Two-Front Strategy
The Assad regime's current offensive in southern Syria has been mainly in the eastern part of Daraa province, down to the Jordanian border. The push toward the west - Quneitra and the Golan - carries the risk of Israeli action.

Once the Syrian military campaign finds its way to Israel's border, Iran will as well - whether immediately or down the road makes little difference.

All the chatter about a deal with Russia notwithstanding, there is a need for Israel to intensify its targeting of Iran's infrastructure, personnel, and logistical lines in Syria to deter the Iranians from moving against Israel on the Golan.

"We have just one option," Brig.-Gen. (ret.) Shimon Shapira, a senior researcher of Hizbullah and Iran at the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs, told me.

"And that is to act with force, overtly and covertly, against the Iranian presence in Syria. Consenting to or accepting the Iranian presence, be it direct or indirect, in the end will lead to a war with Iran in Syria and in Lebanon."

As Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu put it recently, "if there needs to be" conflict with Iran, "it is better now than later."
Report: Obama 'shocked' by settlement expansion
A series of maps of Judea and Samaria, focusing on the placement of Jewish communities and Israeli military facilities in the area, provoked a dramatic change in the Obama administration’s policies vis-à-vis Israel, a report by The New Yorker claims.

According to the report Monday, a presentation by then-Secretary of State John Kerry to President Barack Obama in the waning days of the administration ‘shocked’ the president into taking a more aggressive stance towards Israel, withholding America’s veto on a United Nations Security Council resolution critical of Israeli policies in Judea and Samaria.

The Obama administration, like its predecessors, had in the past backed a final status settlement negotiated by Israel and the Palestinian Authority and opposed unilateral actions regarding core final status issues. In this vein, the US had traditionally used its veto power on the Security Council to block resolutions directed against Israel.

In December 2016, however, the Obama administration permitted UNSC Resolution 2334 to pass – a measure which demanded Israel unilaterally freeze all construction in not only Judea and Samaria, but eastern Jerusalem as well.

The decision to abandon Israel at the Security Council – a significant departure from traditional US policy – after the president was presented with a series of maps collected at the behest of a senior State Department official, Frank Lowenstein.

The collection of maps, assembled in 2015 by Lowenstein and updated by the State Department in 2016, was presented to Obama and key advisers by Secretary of State John Kerry during a 2016 Oval Office meeting.
New Zealand “got it wrong” over 2334
National Party leader, Simon Bridges, has acknowledged that New Zealand “got it wrong” by co-sponsoring United Nations Security Council Resolution 2334 alongside Malaysia, Senegal, and Venezuela.

Though New Zealand First leader, Winston Peters, challenged the process at the time – that the decision was not put to cabinet – Mr Bridges stated that he thought cabinet “would have made a different decision” than Foreign Minister Murray McCully did.

This is an important acknowledgement – especially after Bill English failed to answer questions about the controversial resolution and claimed that the decision actually didn’t need to go to cabinet.

The comments by Mr Bridges were made during question time at a Hastings public meeting on Friday 29 June, 2018, and are online. Pastor Nigel Woodley asked

“In a future National govt led by you, what do you propose to do to ensure that a much more even-handed, balanced, and fair foreign policy towards the State of Israel is enacted. Because at the moment the foreign policy is very much tipped in favour of the Palestinians at the expense of both truth and justice.” – Pastor Nigel Woodley

The response of Mr Bridges is transcribed below the video. He made three important comments that need to be highlighted.

1. “I get that question or similar at most meetings”
This observation shows how the actions of Minister McCully were out of step with the wishes of the people. The Israel Institute of New Zealand 2017 poll showed that more than half of all Kiwis support Israel and only about one quarter thought the government was right to co-sponsor the resolution. The thousands of New Zealanders who protested, signed letters, and expressed their disappointment at the time are clearly still sending the same message.

2. “We got it wrong on that UN resolution [2234]”
This acknowledgment is some relief to the majority of New Zealanders and is an important step from Mr Bridges. However, the resolution is not “history” now and nor is it “academic”, as Rt Hon Mr Peters has claimed. Unfortunately, UN resolutions build upon each other and 2334 was referenced in the disproportionate number of anti-Israel resolutions that New Zealand continued to support in 2017, and in the recent resolution condemning Israel for “disproportionate and indiscriminate force” with regard to the Gaza riots – a resolution that New Zealand also supported, despite it not mentioning Hamas. If New Zealand is to act on the rhetoric, then the voting pattern at the UN must change to become more in line with our traditional allies on the side of truth, justice, and fairness.
What does Boris Johnson's resignation mean for UK-Israel relations?
Former British foreign minister Boris Johnson's resignation on Monday plunged Prime Minister Theresa May's turbulent government into even more trouble less than a day after former Brexit Secretary David Davis quit the government.

Johnson’s resignation letter slammed May's Brexit negotiation strategy, stating that the Brexit "dream is dying, suffocated by needless self-doubt."

May moved quickly to appoint Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt as the UK's new foreign secretary, ushering in a new and less flamboyant era at the British Foreign Office.

Israeli Ambassador to the UK Mark Regev was quick to welcome Johnson's foreign secretary replacement, expressing hope that relations between the two countries will continue to go from strength to strength.

"Mazal tov to Jeremy Hunt on his appointment as Foreign Secretary. Looking forward to further strengthening the Israel-UK partnership," wrote the Israeli envoy on Twitter on Monday evening.

Although public statements made by Hunt to date regarding Israel are scarce, he dedicates much of his website's foreign policy section to the Middle East where his opinions regarding the Israeli-Arab conflict mirror those of the Conservative Party in general.

There Hunt expresses his desire to promote business ties with Israel, and states his strong opposition to the BDS movement. But he also highlights his concerns regarding the demolition of Palestinian villages and the detention of Palestinian children by Israeli authorities.

Hunt reiterates his government's support for a two-state solution, and states that he was "very disappointed by the announcement of the US's intention to move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem."
France Keeps Blackening Israel
Relations between France and Israel have been ambivalent and complex for decades. Among the most prominent are those where the French government sets out to blacken Israel. President Emmanuel Macron is seemingly a new type of Frenchman. He reached the presidency without having risen through the ranks of an existing political party. He is a suave, intelligent politician with an excellent education, an international outlook, many ideas, and good public relations.

However, analysis has to concentrate on facts and not packaging. A good point of departure are the French reactions to the recent Gaza border violence. When Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met Macron in Paris in April, the French president told him that the relocation of the US Embassy to Jerusalem “led to people dying and did not advance peace.” With this transparently manipulative statement Macron showed his skills in distorting the truth in a few words. What provoked the violence was the terror organization Hamas’ initiative to send civilians to the border and mix terrorists among them. Among the more than 115 Gazans killed by Israel, more than half were confirmed terrorists. That many of those killed were terrorists was confirmed by Hamas itself.

France also supported an UN Security Council resolution which called for protective measures for Palestinians, but didn’t mention Hamas. Deputy Israeli Minister Michael Oren summarized it in a tweet: “Shame on France for supporting it. French government cannot say it’s against anti-Semitism and vote for this anti-Semitic resolution.”
The IDF’s response to ongoing Hamas terror attacks
Today, Monday July 9, the Kerem Shalom Crossing will now only be open to humanitarian aid, including food and medicine that will be approved on an individual basis by COGAT. Exports and marketing of goods will no longer take place at the Kerem Shalom Crossing.

This is in light of the ongoing arson and additional terror attacks at the hands of the terror organization, Hamas. This includes infiltration into Israel from the Gaza Strip, terror tunnels discovered leading into Israel from the Gaza Strip, including two near the Kerem Shalom Crossing, and violent riots along the security border. In addition to putting the lives of Israeli civilians at risk and breaching Israel’s sovereignty, Hamas also simultaneously exploits and endangers Gaza residents.

Additionally, the expansion of the designated fishing zone in the Gaza Strip ends today, Monday July 9. For the past three months during the fishing season, the extension increased from six to nine nautical miles. The fishing zone will be returned to six nautical miles today.

This is in response not only to the most recent terror attempts by Hamas, but also in addition to the discovery that took place on June 3 of a terror tunnel located within a Hamas military post that exited to the sea. As well, on May 29th, the Israeli Navy apprehended a Palestinian boat with approximately 17 Palestinians that attempted to breach the legal naval blockade.

The State of Israel aspires and acts to improve the living conditions of civilians in the Gaza Strip. However, the IDF has decided to take these measures due to the recent situation in which the Hamas terror organization is exploiting Gazan residents and launching arson and explosive balloons and kites towards the Israeli communities adjacent to the Gaza Strip. The current situation doesn’t allow the residents of southern Israel to safely maintain their daily routine. Should these severe conditions continue, IDF measures will persist and intensify.
Kite, balloon terrorism continues scorching Israel's land
More than 100 days have passed since the kite and balloon terrorism began. So far, it has resulted in 678 fires in farmlands and wooded areas in Israeli communities on the Gaza border community, with 9,160 dunams (2,260 acres) of mostly natural grove consumed.

In addition, 6,000 dunams (1,500 acres) of agricultural produce and thousands of dunams (acres) of open fields were burned to the ground.

The Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael (KKL) alone has lost 15,100 dunams (37,000 acres) of land, not including the Gaza border communities' lands that were scorched.

Firefighters, community security coordinators, and KKL teams worked tirelessly to put out 33 fires across the Eshkol, Sdot Negev and Hof Ashkelon regional councils on Monday. The firefighters managed to gain control of most of the blazes within minutes, except for the fire in Kibbutz Gvar'am, which took the crews a longer time to overcome.

Despite the IDF's announcement that a high-tech solution has been found to eliminate the incendiary balloons threat—in the form of detection and interception drones— fields are still being burned every day and the threat posed by the balloons is only increasing.

The IDF is operating a system able to detect and track the balloons. However, they are still not being intercepted while in the air.
Analysis: Why close the Kerem Shalom Gaza border crossing now?
So there are a few options. It is possible to threaten Hamas, which both Liberman and Netanyahu have done repeatedly since the wave of kite arson began. But that has not succeeded in getting the terrorist organization to stop setting fire to the Israeli fields.

It is also possible, as both the prime minister and defense minister have done, to stress upon occasion that the real strategic danger to the country – the problem that needs immediate and urgent attention – is Iran’s entrenchment in Syria.

But the public pressure has built nonetheless, and Netanyahu needs to show that not only is Israel not impotent against what seems like a primitive threat, but can also apply pressure on Hamas in return.

Why now? Perhaps because Israel thought, in vain, that its warnings and threats against Hamas would do the trick. Perhaps because they wanted to give Egyptian mediators a chance to persuade Hamas to give up this type of warfare. Perhaps because there was hope the IDF would come up with some kind of technological solution to the problem.

But when none of that came to pass, Netanyahu and Liberman – according to this face-value reading of the situation – decided to turn up the heat, even at the risk of bringing down international condemnation on Israel, and even if it means making the extremely difficult lives of Gaza’s residents under Hamas even more difficult.

Something, Netanyahu and Liberman surely believe, needs to be done.
Hamas: We infiltrated Israel and collected information
For years, Hamas has been complaining that the Israeli and Egyptian blockade on the Gaza Strip, as well as sanctions imposed by the Palestinian Authority against the two million residents living there, have created a “humanitarian and economic crisis” in the coastal enclave.

But now that some countries and international parties – including the US, Israel and the United Nations – have come up with a number of initiatives to improve living conditions in the Gaza Strip, Hamas does not seem to know what to do.

Here’s the dilemma Hamas is facing: On the one hand, if Hamas accepts these initiatives, its rivals – first and foremost the ruling Fatah faction – will accuse it of “selling out to Israel and the US,” and giving up Palestinian national rights in return for economic projects and humanitarian aid.

On the other hand, rejecting proposals to improve the living conditions its constituents could aggravate the situation and possibly prompt desperate Palestinians to revolt against the Hamas regime.

Some of the initiatives sound very tempting, to a point where it’s hard to see how Hamas can say no to a seaport in Cyprus or projects to create job opportunities to solve the serious problem of unemployment in the Gaza Strip.

Hamas has nothing to lose by allowing Western parties to establish an industrial zone in the Gaza Strip that would provide thousand of jobs to Palestinians. In fact, such projects benefit Hamas because they exempt it from its responsibilities – as the de facto government in the Gaza Strip – toward its people.

This is why Hamas leaders and officials appear to be divided over the various initiatives that are being proposed by Israel, the US and the UN.
U.N.: Israel’s ban on commercial goods for Gaza could escalate conflict
The United Nations said it was concerned Israel’s decision to halt the flow of commercial goods into the Gaza Strip through the Kerem Shalom crossing could escalate its conflict with Hamas.

“Everyone must step back from the trajectory of confrontation and escalation,” UN Special Coordinator to the Middle East Peace Process Nickolay Mladenov said on Tuesday.

He spoke in response to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s decision to issue the harshest restrictions on Gaza’s main commercial crossing since the 2014 war with Hamas.

As of Tuesday morning only humanitarian supplies, such as food, medicine and fuel could enter the strip.

Israel’s decision to impose severe economic sanctions on Gaza comes fours months after Hamas and Islamic militants in Gaza have launched flaming kites into southern Israel that has scorched large swaths of fields along the southern border.

It also comes in the midst of a major US push to put in place an economic package that would ease life for the two million Palestinians in Gaza, that are also suffering from Palestinian economic sanctions and living on four hours of fuel a day.

“I am concerned by the consequences of Israel’s decision to temporarily suspend imports and exports with the exception of basic humanitarian supplies through the Kerem Shalom crossing,” Mladenov said on Tuesday.
Liberman in Golan: IDF will act against Iranian presence in Syria
Israel will not allow Iran to entrench itself in Syria, which would give it the ability to launch attacks on Israeli territory, Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman warned Tuesday during a tour of the Golan Heights with senior IDF officers.

"The Iranian presence in Syria is unreasonable, and we are not prepared to accept an Iranian presence in Syria anywhere, and as you have heard more than once, we will act against any Iranian consolidation in Syria,” the defense minister said.

“The moment we identify an Iranian presence, we will act,” Liberman added, warning that there is no difference between a withdrawal of Iranian troops to 40 or 80 kilometers from Israel’s border.

According to Liberman, Israel has “identified elements” belonging to Iran and its Shiite proxy militias who “under the auspices of the regime” are trying to establish themselves on the Golan Heights.

“This effort to establish a terrorist infrastructure under the auspices of the regime, as far as we are concerned, is unacceptable and we will act with force against any terrorist infrastructure that we will see and identify here in the region,” Liberman warned.
Female terrorist who mistakenly stabbed Arab sentenced
A Jerusalem court sentenced a female Arab terrorist to 10 years in prison on Monday, after she was found guilty of a stabbing attack near the Old City of Jerusalem last summer.

The terrorist, 31-year-old Fadwa Nazih Hamadeh, attacked a haredi man returning from morning prayers in the Old City of Jerusalem on Saturday, August 12th.

As the haredi man left the Old City via the Damascus Gate, Hamadeh lunged at him with a knife. In video footage taken from a security camera in the area, Hamadeh’s would-be victim can be seen dodging the attack and fleeing the scene.

After she failed to injure her first target, Hamadeh turned her sights on another man, stabbing him in the shoulder.

The victim was a 31-year-old Arab man Hamadeh had mistakenly thought was an Israeli Jew.

A resident of Jerusalem’s Sur Baher neighborhood, Hamadeh is married and has five children, ranging in age from 8 to one-and-a-half.
Overnight: Shooting attack in Beit El
A shooting attack took place in the town of Beit El in the Binyamin region overnight Monday. No injuries were reported.

Several bullet casings were found at the scene. Troops are searching the area.

Meanwhile, IDF soldiers operating in Palestinian Authority-assigned areas of Judea and Samaria detained overnight Tuesday four wanted persons suspected of involvement in terrorist activities, popular terror and violent disturbances against civilians and security forces.

The suspects were taken for questioning.

As well, during a search for weapons in the PA city of Qalqiliya, IDF troops seized an M16 assault rifle, which was transferred to security agencies.
Israeli Border Police Soldiers Save Life of Palestinian Baby in Hebron
Israeli Border Police soldiers stationed at the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron saved the life of a nine-month-old Palestinian boy on Sunday, the Hebrew news site Walla reported.

The soldiers heard shouts coming from a nearby home and when they arrived they found an unconscious baby surrounded by distressed family members who were trying to resuscitate him.

The baby was not breathing and his face had turned blue. The soldiers took over the effort to revive him, and a Border Police medic who was called to the scene succeeded in getting him breathing again.

Watch an Israel Police video of the medic treating the baby below:


Khaled Abu Toameh: Hamas divided: The Gaza Strip rulers' humanitarian aid dilemma
The Al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of terror group Hamas, published what it called "new details" about the attack on Zikim Beach on July 8, 2014.

Hamas naval commandos landed at the Zikim beach at the beginning of Operation Protective Edge, where they were located and eliminated by an IDF combined force 40 minutes after infiltration into Israeli territory.

According Hamas’ version, the Zikim operation included two stages. The first stage was the observation and gathering of information about IDF forces in the area of ​​Zikim Beach and their command headquarters. That mission was carried out by Hamas naval force operatives who infiltrated Israeli territory.

The second stage was the implementation of the attack, that began with the departure of Hamas naval force operatives by diving and swimming towards the target. The force split in two. The first force landed outside and began to advance toward the command headquarters. After about 45 minutes, another force joined them and updated Hamas command about developments and asked for further directions.
Syrians Flee Towards the Hospitals of ‘Enemy’ Israel
The founder of the Good Neighbor project, Lt. Col. (res.) Marco Moreno, explains that “refugees are not expected to seek shelter from us. We have always managed aid as a military operation with caution and attention, knowing that our soldiers are saving and helping them while risking our lives. We enter at night in a country at war against us. We can expect anything, and we know that. But we want to save them as human beings. We passionately help children; when they come with their families here and there along the fence, the population collects toys, clothes, funds, special food, diapers … at the beginning, there was a lot of suspicion, but then they understood.”

“Yes, we certainly have an explicit interest,” he added. “When the operation started, we told them: ‘We will help you beyond the border and take care of you, but don’t allow your terrorists to come and hurt us.’ What simply started out as the right thing to do has transformed into something beautiful.”

Lt.-Col. Tomer Koller, a medical officer in the Bashan division of the Golan, points to the colored tents in the wind from the Hazaka outlook post. Inside, they are packed with people in need.

For Israel, it is impossible to think of hosting them. The country is small, and these refugees are particularly problematic; they vary from newborn babies to ISIS terrorists who hate Jews. “Our policy is to help them,” said Koller. “We feed them, we take care of them as much as possible … and then they have their reality at home.”

Their home is in flames. We know it; we see the frightful wounds on the bodies of Syrians cured by Israelis in the Galilee. Israel cares for Syrians with its incredible therapeutic power and good will, but it can’t bring them home. In that respect, the best of human intentions and common sense sometimes clash. The right choice, however, is that man remains a friend of his fellow man, at his best, even in war. That’s what Israel believes.
Iran Vows to Sell as Much Oil as It Can in Face of US Sanctions
Iran’s vice president acknowledged on Tuesday that US sanctions would hurt the economy, but promised to “sell as much oil as we can” and protect banking.

Eshaq Jahangiri said Washington was trying to stop Iran’s petrochemical, steel and copper exports. “America seeks to reduce Iran’s oil sales, our vital source of income, to zero,” he said, according to Fars news agency.

“It would be a mistake to think the US economic war against Iran will have no impact,” Jahangiri added.

President Donald Trump said in May he would pull the United States out of an international accord under which Tehran had agreed to limit its nuclear development in exchange for sanctions relief.

Trump said he would reintroduce sanctions and Washington later told countries they must stop buying Iran’s oil from Nov. 4 or face financial consequences.

On Tuesday, the US ambassador to Germany also called on Berlin to block an Iranian bid to withdraw large sums of cash from bank accounts in Germany.

Jahangiri said Iran’s foreign ministry and the central bank have taken measures to facilitate Iran’s banking operations despite the US sanctions. He did not elaborate.
U.S. Seeks to Thwart Iran Flying Millions in Cash Out of Germany
Top Trump administration officials are working to stop Germany from allowing Iran to fly more than $350 million in cash out of the country and back to Tehran as part of a bid by the Iranian regime to restock its coffers ahead of a major financial crackdown by America, according to conversations with senior U.S. diplomats and officials on Capital Hill.

The Trump administration is already working to stop the German government from allowing this transfer following weekend reports that Iran is poised to fly around 300 million Euros out of the country as part of an ongoing scheme to skirt tough new U.S. economic sanctions, which were put back into effect after President Donald Trump decided to abandon the landmark nuclear deal.

"The mullahs are worried that they will run out of cash," according to a report in Germany's Bild news site. "Iran's justification for their plan says that they need the money ‘to pass it on to Iranian individuals who, when traveling abroad, are dependent on euros in cash due to their lack of access to accepted credit cards.'"

The disclosure of the latest scheme to skirt U.S. sanctions has inflamed ongoing tensions between the United States and Germany over its efforts to continue providing Iran with sanctions relief in the face of a crackdown by the Trump administration, which has been locked in diplomatic efforts to convince European partners to pull out of Iran.
China’s Xi Pledges $20 Billion in Loans to Revive Middle East
Chinese President Xi Jinping on Tuesday pledged a package of $20 billion in loans, and about $106 million in financial aid, to Middle East nations, as part of what he called an “oil and gas plus” model to revive economic growth in the region.

Beijing has ramped up engagement in the Middle East in recent years as Arab nations play an important role in Xi’s signature Belt and Road foreign policy plan for strong trade routes linking China with central and southeast Asia.

Development was key to resolving many security problems in the Middle East, Xi told a gathering with representatives of 21 Arab nations in the Chinese capital.

“We should treat each other frankly, not fear differences, not avoid problems, and have ample discussion on each aspect of foreign policy and development strategy,” he said.

China would offer aid worth 100 million yuan ($15 million) to Palestine to support economic development, besides providing a further 600 million yuan ($91 million) to Jordan, Lebanon, Syria and Yemen, he added.

A consortium of banks from China and Arab nations, with a dedicated fund of $3 billion, will also be set up, he said.

It was unclear what the relationship between the bank consortium, financial aid and the overall loan package would be.

The loans will fund a plan of “economic reconstruction” and “industrial revival” that would include cooperation on oil and gas, nuclear and clean energy, Xi said.
China pledges $15 million to Palestinians amid major push for Mideast influence
China will provide Palestinians with more than $15 million in aid, President Xi Jinping told top Arab officials Tuesday, as Beijing seeks to build its influence in the Middle East and Africa.

The 100 million yuan pledge to Palestinians was made as part of a plan to give Arab states more than $23 billion in lines of credit, loans and humanitarian assistance for economic development.

The money will be earmarked for “projects that will produce good employment opportunities and positive social impact in Arab States that have reconstruction needs,” said Xi, without providing further details.

It is part of a special Chinese program for “economic reconstruction” and “industrial revitalization,” Xi told participants at a China-Arab States forum in Beijing’s Great Hall of the People.

Beijing is also prepared to provide another one billion yuan ($151 million) to countries in the region to “build capacity for stability maintenance,” Xi said, using a term commonly associated with policing and surveillance.

Xi said that Syria, Yemen, Jordan and Lebanon would receive $91 million in humanitarian assistance.

          Lega e 5 stelle litigano anche sui droni      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Salvini vorrebbe usare i droni anche per pattugliare le coste italiane e spinge per accelerare la fornitura dei P1HH, i veicoli a pilotaggio remoto della Piaggio Aerospace e la progettazione dei nuovi P2HH. Ma il M5S fa melina e si divide. L'ultimo incidente di percorso oggi al Senato. La commissione Bilancio si è riunita per acquisire il nulla osta del ministero dell'Economia, la certezza che nell'apposito capitolo vi fossero risorse disponibili. Ovvero i 766 milioni di euro da spalmare per i prossimi 15 0 20 anni. Ma quando il relatore, il pentastellato campano Vincenzo Presutto ha chiesto un rinvio alla commissione Difesa per acquisire ulteriore audizioni, il suo collega M5S Mario Turco, relatore in commissione Difesa, ha fatto di tutto per evitare un nuovo stop del provvedimento. La questione è rimasta a lungo fuori alla portata dei radar per non alimentare nuove tensioni nel Movimento.

IL DRONE DELLA DISCORDIA

Turco, pugliese, docente di economia aziendale, prova a smorzare i toni. "Ho posto un problema di metodo per segnalare che non si potevano duplicare le audizioni". Ma poi ammette: "Qualche perplessità ce l'abbiamo. Riguardano il contenuto tecnologico e l'aspetto economico e finanziario del nostro contraente: sappiamo insomma che Piaggio Aerospace è controllata da un fondo sovrano che ha sede negli emirati-arabi".

OPERAZIONE COSTE SICURE

Il busillis ruota intorno ad un ltro interrogativo: arma civile o arma bellica? La linea grillina è perlomeno ondivaga. "I vantaggi per la nostra impresa sarebbero enormi, vorrebbe dire porsi all'avanguardia in settori come l'intelligenza digitale – riprende Turco, che ha già seguito l'iter del provvedimento "urgente" come relatore nella commissione speciale che si era riunita quando ancora il governo Lega-M5S non c'era formato – un settore che in futuro sarà nevralgico". Turco si dice favorevole all'acquisto ma intanto pone una domanda che alla quale egli stesso non sa dare risposta: "È lecito finanziare un progetto di ricerca – la cui durata per il momento non è ben precisata – che sfocerà in un prodotto realizzato da un'azienda privata controllata perdi più da un soggetto estero?". E lo scontro con il collega Presutto? "Nessuno scontro, abbiamo una linea comune". Sarà. Ma Antonio Saccone, senatore Udc iscritto al gruppo di FI e membro della commissione Bilancio non la pensa così: "Si è trattato di un incidente imbarazzante – accusa – che evidenzia la spaccatura in seno alla maggioranza e in seno ai 5 Stelle, con il governo che temporeggia in merito all'acquisto di aeromobili strategici per la sicurezza nazionale, Il relatore chiede il rinvio per ulteriori approfondimento e il suo collega, sempre 5 Stelle, ritiene inutile tale rinvio. Anche sul tema difesa la maggioranza giallo-verde mostra crepe al suo interno".

Il ministro dell'Interno intanto spinge. Lancia vari segnali per dire che non c'è altro tempo da perdere, anche perché nel frattempo la Piaggio Aerospace è stata costretta a mettere in cassa integrazione 36 suoi dipendenti. Mentre al ministero del Lavoro è stato aperto un tavolo di contrattazione. La Lega considera l'acquisto dei droni un passo fondamentale per la sicurezza. Contro le ecomafie, le mafie locali, per il controllo dell'ambiente e del territorio e – va da sé – per controllare le coste mai cosi "calde" come in questi giorni. La scontro finora non si era mai consumato alla luce del sole. Con un'altra azienda, Leonardo, che produce droni da combattimento, in corsa per dividersi la torta. Giovanni Soccodato. responsabile Strategie, è già stato audito in Camera e in Senato e in entrambi in casi ha auspicato "una collaborazione paritetica con Piaggio". E domani si replica: nuova seduta della commissione Bilancio. Il drone vola alto ma non può attendere.


          Indonesia, 20 consigli per un incredibile viaggio tra Giava a Bali      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Quando il Boieng 777 Emirates EK356 partito da Dubai inizia a sorvolare Aceh nell'estremità settentrionale di Sumatra, mancano ancora quasi tre ora all'atterraggio nella capitale. Primo indizio della vastità indonesiana; sconfinata nazione da 17,000 isole in costante metamorfosi geologica, economica e sociale.

Una collezione di bellezze, storie e contraddizioni dalla sovrastante megalopoli di Giacarta ai fragili eco-sistemi marini delle Raja Ampat di Papua in cui lo stato arcipelago più esteso del mondo, incanta e affascina attraverso una straordinaria varietà paesaggistica ed eredità culturali che spaziano dai riti tribali dal cuore delle foreste alle usanze europee introdotte nel corso dei secoli. Il tutto accompagnato da un boom economico senza precedenti che pur lampante nella capitale, risulta distante anni luce nella maggior parte delle aree rurali; inclusi i villaggi rurali attorno a Yogyakarta. Zona fertile e vulcanica dove nelle campagne si produce ancora il tofù "naturale" come da antiche tradizioni.

Una delle tante memorie dei primi scambi commerciali del VII secolo instaurati dal Regno Srivijaya con Cina e India e seguiti dall'arrivo dei mercanti arabi di Gujarat che avviarono la diffusione dell'Islam. Con l'approdo degli olandesi ha invece inizio un'intricata storia coloniale che si mescolerà ad abitudini mussulmane, animiste, hinduiste e buddiste con quest'ultime tre che dopo la cacciata da Giava, troveranno esilio e pace a Bali; l'isola degli Dei. Più in generale, il susseguirsi di popoli, religioni ed usanze hanno creato un patrimonio culturale sui generis, una gastronomia unica ed atmosfere di rara eleganza e raffinatezza. Particolarmente tangibili nell'architettura tra dimore adagiate su onde perfette oppure costruite accanto a fertili risaie e padiglioni di bambù mimetizzati nella giungla al cospetto di fiumi e vulcani. Suggestioni di un viaggio dallo straordinario impatto visivo ed emotivo raccontato da venti esperienze uniche e memorabili che solo l'Indonesia può offrire.

1. La Giacarta coloniale – Case dai tetti a punta come nei canali di Amsterdam accanto al Museo della Storia della Città da visitare dopo un rinfresco all'iconico Cafè Batavia. Tappe essenziali del quartiere Kota Tua assieme al vecchio ufficio postale; zona dove il municipio del XVII secolo riavvolge il nastro del tempo a quando la capitale delle indie olandesi era l'epicentro mondiale del commercio di spezie. Altra attività interessante per chi vuole acquistare antichità, tessuti e oggetti tradizionali è il mercato di Jalan Surabaya Street. Dato il traffico però munitevi di scooter o Vespa; il mezzo a due ruote più amato dagli indonesiani.

2. Giacarta by night – Ore piccole, alta ristorazione, neon, grattacieli, locali underground e indirizzi di gran lusso. La Giacarta che non dorme mai veste abiti sartoriali italiani, corre in fretta e pretende il meglio. Un trend che il Mandarin Oriental - sinonimo di raffinatezza contemporanea ed effetti speciali in cucina – è stato tra i primi a captare e cavalcare con la proprietà nel quartiere diplomatico di Giacarta. Un palazzo moderno con panorami della capitale ed uno stratosferico dim sum a base di cigni neri in azoto. Una delle tante delizie del ristorante Li Feng; indirizzo di grande moda come il Pelataran Restaurant. Fusion indonesiana e sapori dal Kerala a Lisbona in una affascinante dimora coloniale di Meteng.

3. Sentirsi una star a Borobodur – Oltre all'imponente presenza del luogo avvolto da valli e giungla e costruito con pietre nere, uno degli aspetti che più restano impressi della visita alla colossale opera risalente al 800 d.C, è ritrovarsi protagonista d'infinite foto ricordo delle scolaresche. Dopo le pose, non dimenticate di ammirare gli elaborati intarsi con storie di demoni e divinità e soprattutto di compiere tre giri completi dell'ultimo anello di Borobudur; il tempio buddista più grande del mondo inserito tra i Patrimoni dell'Umanità Unesco. Una visione alta 35 metri creata da 1,600,000 blocchi di pietra ed ornata con 2670 bassorilievi e 500 stupa.

4. Yogykyarta tra Kraton e batik – Scegliete il confortevole Melia Purosani – uno degli alberghi con il miglior rapporto qualità prezzo del paese – come punto di partenza privilegiato verso il Palazzo del Sultano nel quartiere di Kraton tra corti, edifici e padiglioni risalenti al XVIII secolo per un magnifico alternarsi di stili, arte e decorazioni dall'Asia agli imperi coloniali. Altrettanto imperdibile - e risalenti alla stessa epoca - sono i tunnel e la moschea sotterranea del Taman Sari. Dopo la visita dirigetevi a JI Malioboro per acquistare i tipici batik mentre al calar del sole, le viuzze di Sosrowijayan si animano bar e ristoranti. Jogjkyarta è la culla della cultura giavanese e la città di maggior fascino e storia dell'isola più abitata del mondo.

5. Enduro e lava – In compagnia dell'esperto Yuono – guida tuttofare e fondatore di www.jogjatrans.com – balzate in sella alle piccole e maneggevoli enduro da 125cc per indimenticabili giornate nella campagna attorno a Yogykarta. L'escursione, dopo una sessione di guida accanto a risaie e villaggi, inizia con la visita all'alba dello scenografico Prambanan. Dal tempio hindu patrimonio Unesco dedicato a Shiva ed anch'esso costruita con pietra lavica, una serie di poetiche strade tra fiumi e coltivazioni di banane vi condurrà al cospetto del Mount Merapi; vulcano la cui eruzione nel 2010 – immortalata da scatti e reperti - ha purtroppo ucciso 347 persone. Gli effetti della pioggia di lava sono visibili al museo di Sleman accanto al quale – o meglio in fondo alla valle - c'è il letto del fiume coperto di minerali nere. Faticoso percorso fuori dal mondo da affrontare in enduro.

6: Canggu cool – Una volta giunti a Bali, mantenersi a debita distanza da Kuta – la spiaggia dove tutto è iniziato – è il primo accorgimento per non rimanere delusi. Altro consiglio, data l'incessante ascesa del turismo, è di saltare a piè pari anche Legian e Seminyak a favore dello zeitgeist di Canggu; paesino costiero adagiato s'una lunga spiaggia con onde adatte ai principianti ed eleganti beach club quali The Lawn. La via principale, costellata di proposte vegane gourmand, eleganti boutique di vestiti, food-trucks dal Messico all'oriente e negozi di bermuda e tavole da surf artigianali, attrae un eclettico mix di surfisti, expats e viaggiatori dall'Australia al Sud America pronti a giocare d'anticipo sulla curva del turismo.

7: Arte e magia del Tugu Hotel – Legandosi al paragrafo precedente, non è affatto un caso che uno degli alberghi più speciali e premiati dell'Asia e del mondo abbia scelto Canggu come location. Il Tugu Hotel è un sublime universo parallelo che attraverso arredi, materiali e reperti dal passato d'inestimabile valore incarna romanticismo, storia e cultura dell'Indonesia. L'esperienza inizia con la passerella di legno sospesa sui fiori di loto, seguita da un rinfresco al cospetto di un monumentale Garuda tra luci soffuse, atmosfere di rara eleganza e suggestioni coloniali. Ogni spazio comune e camera ha una sua precisa identità scandita da arte balinese, templi e scelte estetiche di straordinaria grazia e armonia che riportano al regno di Majapahit. Alla sera, nelle ampie camere in stile coloniale tra letti a baldacchino, scrivanie intarsiate e vasche di rame con vista Oceano Indiano, ci si addormenta al suono delle maree mentre l'all-day breakfast servita a proprio piacimento ed orario in ogni onirico angolo della struttura, è un invito a godersi ogni attimo di un soggiorno indimenticabile.

8: Uluwatu – Un luogo mistico e leggendario da oltre mille anni quando venne eretto uno dei templi più importanti di Bali. Oggi Uluwatu è soprattutto famosa per le sue onde lunghe e perfette che s'infrangono incessanti s'uno spietato reef; creando nel processo dei "breaks" per cui molti surfisti attraversano il mondo. Uluwatu è l'Oceano Indiano in tutta la sua potenza ed energia, la quintessenza del surf e una sfida alla natura selvaggia. Una baia dove anche l' entrata in acqua tra rocce a punta e caverne marine è critica e dunque, ogni caduta dalla tavola rischia di essere accompagnata da graffi, tagli e abrasioni. Surf estremo per soli professionisti da ammirare comodamente seduti sui banconi a picco sul mare del Single Fin sorseggiando un drink.

9. Four Seasons Sayan – Visione metafisica di elissi e trame mimetizzata nella giungla di Ubud; probabilmente il paese più raffinato e seducente di Bali. Aggettivi più che appropriati all'albergo extra lusso scelto da Barack Obama per la sua visita in'Indonesia da Presidente degli Stati Uniti. Il Four Seasons Sayan è un'esperienza onirica e perfetta a pochi minuti dalla capitale spirituale di Bali. La struttura sorge accanto al fiume Ayung per un incantevole resort tropicale che unisce ospitalità impeccabile, servizi di livello eccelso, camere e suite in stile contemporanei con jacuzzi private avvolte dalla vegetazione ed un centro benessere con trattamenti orientali. Dopo l'apertura dei chakra, concedetevi una paradisiaca sessione di relax sospesi sulle amache nel padiglione dedicato allo yoga; una delle tante attività da non perdere per salutare il sole all'alba per circondati da risaie, palme, profumo di frangipane ed i suoni della foresta prima di una delle colazioni a la carte più buone del paese.

10. Bici e risaie terrazzate – L'entroterra di Bali caratterizzato da campagna, laghi, fiumi e vulcani può risultare anche più interessante della costa. Per scoprirlo in modo autentico, sicuro e rispettoso le guide del Four Seasons Sayan organizzano dei tour di circa tre ore e mezza in bicicletta. Una splendida attività per immergersi nelle quiete e poetiche atmosfere dei villaggi rurali fermandosi ad osservare templi, volti della gente e parate in abiti tipici. Altro valore aggiunto è conoscere i meccanismi dei sistema d'irrigazione artificiale inseriti tra i patrimoni Unesco e progettati per alimentare le risaie. Una mattinata di docili sali e scendi, respiro, bellezza e fertili paesaggi di terrazze scavate nelle colline e coltivate come da pratiche tradizionali.

11. Karma Beach – Padiglioni dai tetti circolari a pochi metri dalla riva, lettini soffici come nuvole, massaggi al suono delle maree, un gustoso menù internazionale e l'acqua più trasparente e balneabile di tutta la penisola di Bukit. La scenografica baia di sabbia bianca abbracciata da scogliere fitte di vegetazione tropicale ed una splendente laguna turchese, è la magnifica e protetta location del Karma Beach (gestita dal karma Group ndr); beach club di grande piacevolezza raggiungibile con la teleferica oppure a piedi. Oltre a tintarella, bagni e relax, gli ospiti hanno a disposizione kayak, Sup e attrezzature da snorkeling per vedere pesci tropicali e giardini di corallo.

12. Architettura sostenibile – Uno delle grandi sfide di Bali è la sostenibilità ambientale, il riciclo dei materiali, il reperimento etico delle risorse, la gestione dei rifiuti ed il rispetto dei delicati eco-sistemi. Temi di cruciale importanza per il futuro dell'isola tanto che molte strutture alberghiere – tra cui quelle citate nell'articolo – sono attivamente coinvolte nel rispetto del territorio e delle risorse naturali. Un tema da cui nessun turista, abitante o investitore può prescindere. Tra gli esempi più funzionali e scenografici alle voci sostenibilità e recupero dei materiali c'è anche il Suarga Padang Padang; albergo a impatto quasi neutro costruito con legni e bambù recuperati in tutta l'Indonesia.

13. Aloha Surf School: Tra coralli taglienti come lame, correnti oceaniche, effetti delle maree e onde schiacciasassi, il surf a Bali non può essere improvvisato; specie per i principianti. Ma anche il surfista esperto può affidarsi alla conoscenza dei "breaks" e delle baie meno note dell'Aloha Surfing School. Realtà giovane e ambiziosa con partnership di alto livello con struttura internazionali che oltre alle lezioni, organizza surf camps ed esperienze su misura. Con l'expertise del titolare Tommy - sempre accompagnato dal simpatico staff - i novizi possono prendere dimestichezza con la tavola nella docile Jimbaran mentre i surfisti più bravi toccano il cielo con un dito infilandosi negli imperdibili e tambureggianti "tubi" di Uluwatu, Padang Padang, Bingin e Sulaban.

14. Food design – Più del cibo di strada, ciò che stupisce di Bali è l'eccellente rapporto qualità prezzo di ristoranti come Il Fish Bone Local di Canggu, il Wantilan Agung del Tugu Hotel ed il Sundara Beach Club firmato Four Seasons Jimbaran. Sofisticati indirizzi gourmet con ingredienti locali di prima qualità, senso estetico ed equilibrati ed eleganti abbinamenti che spaziano da seppie fritte con chili e lemograss, piattini di granchio, cocco e lime, ostrica di Lombok in tempura e specialità balinesi come il Tum be siap (pollo avvolto nella foglia di banana), pepes ikan kakap (triglia marinata nel sambal e avvolta da foglie di banana) e lawar kacang panjang (verdure simili a fagiolini saltati con cocco grattugiato). Da non perdere anche le Breakfast Bowls del Tugu; colorate e nutrienti ciotole di frutta esotica, granola fatta in casa con miele bio e latte al cacao balinese.

15: Bali a tutta custom – Se non siete pratici con moto o scooter, le strade di Bali sono assolutamente sconsigliate. Detto questo, sia per dribblare il traffico (fuori da ogni logica e controllo nelle ore di punta ndr) che per muoversi in modo rapido e indipendente le due ruote possono cambiare volto alla vacanza. Le scelte sono tante ed economiche; a partire dagli iper-diffusi Honda Beat e Vario opportunamente equipaggiati con i "surf racks" per trasportare le tavole. Ben più interessanti e stilose sono però le moto custom di Deus Ex Machina; brand globale nat in Australia che a Canggu ha esportato non solo mezzi a due ruote costruita con innata attenzione a dettagli ed estetica, ma anche una filosofia di vita e di espressione tanto che le "custom" sono diventate parte dell'iconografia dell'isola.

16: Spiritualità tra acqua e vulcani – Pervasivo e onnipresente, il rapporto con le divinità buddiste e hinduiste è un elemento intrinseco alla cultura balinese; espressa attraverso offerte, santuari e templi divenuti veri e propri "landmarks" dell'isola. Tra i luoghi di culto più evocativi vistiate Besakih immerso nella foschia del Monte Agung, Tanalot nei pressi di Beraban, il già citato tempio di Uluwatu, il Goa Gajah di Ubud, l'Ulun Danu sospeso sulle acque del lago Beratan e spingendosi a nord, la sosta imperdibile è al Gunung Gawi tra valli e risaie per uno dei complessi archeologici più preziosi ed importanti di Bali.

17: Four Seasons Jimbaran – Il gruppo canadese è stato tra i primi esponenti dell'alta hotellerie internazionale ad investire su Bali costruendo uno spettacolare indirizzo con accesso privilegiato alla spiaggia di Jimbaran. L'architettura delle suite - con piscina privata e portoni intarsiati - è ispirata ai villaggi tradizionali. Le abitazioni dislocate sullo spettacolare promontorio ed avvolte da un giardino profumato di fiori tropicali che dirada dolcemente sull'Oceano Indiano, sono tutte ben distanziate così da garantire la massima quiete e privacy all'esigente clientela. Servizi, finiture, qualità di cuscini, lenzuola, materassi e proposte culinarie dal Sundara Beach Club al ristorante principale sono ovviamente ai massimi livelli come da standard del Four Seasons. Tra le escursioni di grido spiccano "Heli-Surf" e la Jimbaran Cooking School per conoscere, e quindi apprezzare con tanto di visita ad un mercato del pesce frequentato da solo locali, heritage culturale e gastronomico dell'isola.

18: Street-food: Sapori e profumi del sudest asiatico uniti a contaminazioni indiane, cinesi ed europee. Come spesso capita il cibo di strada racconta origini e capisaldi della cucina. E quella indonesiana è la patria del tempeh (nutriente alimento vegano a base di semi di soia gialla ndr), nasi goreng (riso fritto con pollo o frutti di mare), sambala (una marinatura ottenuta dal pestaggio di varie spezie ed erbe ndr), gado gado (verdure bollite con arachidi) karedok e satè (spiedini di carne con salsa di arachidi). Prevalentemente dolce e molto piccante con abbondanza di lemongrass, cocco, coriandolo, cumino uova, zucchero di palma e arachidi, le zone di street-food da provare in quel di Giacarta sono JL Pecenongan e Wahid Hasyim; via famosa per le specialità ittiche grigliate al momento. Alcuni dei migliori "Warung" dell'Indonesia sono invece nel quartiere Jalian Maloboro di Yogykjarta ed è vietato partire da Bali senza aver assaggiato il Babi Guling; maialino da latte in vari tagli e cotture.

19: La magia del Monte Bromo: Presente in tutte le guide, immortalato da tutti gli angoli e prodigio geologico nel cuore del Parco Nazionale Bromo Tengger Semeru, ammirare il sole che illumina il Monte Bromo e gli altri conici vulcani attivi che svettano dal "mare di sabbia" avvolti dalla foschia mattutina è una delle escursioni più spettacolari e famose del paese. Di conseguenza c'è sempre un po' di folla ed anche in questo caso affidarsi a operatori come www.jogjatrans.com che mettono a disposizione macchina, autista e guida a prezzi molto economici, semplifica non poco le operazioni e consente di godersi l'esperienza senza pensare ad altro che la bellezza.

Moment RF

20: Logistica e consigli di viaggio – L'Indonesia dista circa 15 ore di volo dall'Italia e non ci sono soluzioni dirette. Per spezzare il viaggio lo scalo nello splendente aeroporto di Dubai è una delle soluzioni più logiche e piacevoli. Anche perché Emirates – compagnia di bandiera dell'Emirato Arabo - effettua voli diretti su Giacarta e Bali con ottime tariffe sia per l'Economy (da 550 euro ndr) che per la sontuosa Business Class. La quale, durante lo scalo, vi darà accesso alla Business Class Lounge dell'aeroporto; connubio che rientra tra le esperienze di viaggio "speciali" da fare una volta nella vita. Per quanto riguarda i voli interni meglio scegliere Garuda ed evitare le compagnie low-cost che atterrano spesso con pesanti ritardi. Una volta a terra preparatevi ad un discreto caos stradale. In'Indonesia si guida come in'Inghilterra ed il traffico nelle ore critiche è tale da paralizzare anche i mezzi a due ruote (moto e scooter si affittano facilmente a circa 5 euro al giorno ndr). Dunque è bene pianificare tappe e visite – senza esagerare con il numero di attività giornaliere date distanze e complessità logistiche – evitando gli orari di punta al mattino e tardo pomeriggio. Cappello, crema solare e repellente per gli insetti sono sempre necessari. E così per l'assicurazione sanitaria. Il casco è obbligatorio; quando al manubrio non lasciate parti esposte al sole.

a) GLI ULTIMI ATTORI DELLA ROMA IMPERIALE


Da “Storia d’Italia, Vol. 4, pagg. 135 e segg., Montanelli e Gervaso, RCS 1994, Milano”, citiamo:


Per due mesi i Romani (n.d.a. della Roma Imperiale) rimasero senza Imperatore, ma non risulta che se ne sentissero orfani. Gli ultimi Augusti di imperiale non avevano che il titolo: il potere lo avevano esercitato con regale indegnita’. La popolazione aveva visto i Vandali abbandonare la citta’ e dirigere le vele verso l’Africa di dove erano venuti. I cronisti dell’epoca riferiscono che sull’urbe violentata e saccheggiata si era stesa una coltre di apatia. Fu in questa atmosfera stracca e neghittosa che, sulla fine del 455, varco’ le mura della citta’ un vecchio nobile dell’Alvernia, che era una delle province della Gallia. Si chiamava Avito ma nessuno nella capitale eveva sentito prima di allora il suo nome. Qualcuno disse che era il nuovo Imperatore. I Romani lo accolsero con indifferenza e non gli andarono neppure ncontro.


Avito era stato incoronato non dai Romani, ma dai Visigoti, il dieci luglio ad Arles. Discendeva da una delle famiglie piu’ cospicue della regione. I suoi antenati avevano ricoperto per generazioni cariche importanti nell’esercito e nella pubblica amministrazione. I biografi raccontano che quando divenne Imperatore doveva essere sulla sessantina, essendo nato nell’anno in cui Teodosio mori’. Possedeva una buona cultura classica e aveva letto Cicerone e Giulio Cesare che nel “De Bello Gallico”, cinque secoli prima, aveva descritto il suo popolo. Agli studi alternava la caccia al cinghiale. Il suo “cursus onorum” fu molto rapido e in pochi anni riusci’ ad ottenere une delle cariche piu’ importanti della provincia, la prefettura del pretorio, che tenne per un lustro quando si ritiro’ a vita privata con la figlia Papianilla. Di quest’uomo non avremmo forse mai sentito parlare se un giorno Roma non lo avesse incaricato di un’ambasciata prello il Re dei Visigoti, Teodorico.


Avito e Teodorico si erano conosciuti da ragazzi ed erano diventati grandi amici. Sul traballante Impero d’Occidente incombeva la minaccia di Attila il quale non aveva rinunciato a trasformare l’Italia in un “Deserto dei Tartari”. Avito e Teodorico strinsero un patto di alleanza e di mutuo soccorso. Due mesi dopo la ritirata dei Vandali da Roma, col favore del Re goto, Avito fu coronato Imperatore. Fu un breve regno. Il poeta Sidonio Apollinare, che aveva sposato Papianilla, lo immortalo’ in un brutto panegirico. Come ricompensa il suocero gli fece erigere una statua nel Foro Traiano.


Quando a Roma giunse la notizia che la flotta di Genserico era per la seconda volta salpata per l’Italia, i Romani furono percorsi da un brivido di terrore. Avito fece subito allestire una flotta e vi pose a capo il conte Ricimero il quale investi’ le triremi nemiche che veleggiavano verso la Corsica, le accerchio’ e le colo’ a picco. Migliaia ddi Vandali persero la vita. I superstiti, in catene, furono condotti prigionieri a Roma e Avito li fece decapitare. La popolazione che aveva ancora vivo il ricordo del sacco del 455 esulto’. Ricimero fu portato in trionfo per le strade imbandierate della Capitale. La folla, in delirio, gli tributo’ onori degni dei tempi di Augusto. La gloria del nuovo eore offusco’ quella dell;Imperatore, il quale, poche settimane dopo fu deposto, anche perche’ aveva fatto fondere alcune statue di bronzo per pagare la cinquina ai soldati. Riusci’ a fuggire ma a Piacenza fu fatto prigioniero e consegnato a Ricimero. Questi non solo gli risparmio’ la vita, ma lo fece consacrare Vescovo. Un episodio che testimonia in modo eloquente delle condizioni della Chiesa nel quinto secolo.


Recimero era un barbaro che aveva fatto una brillante carriera riorganizzando l’esercito e combattendo contro i barbari che minacciavano l’impero. Grande generale, freddo calcolatore, fu sempre fedele a Roma ma non agli imperatori che di volta in volta colloco’ sul trono e da esso sbalzo’. Si ricordava di Stilicone, che Onorio aveva assassinato, e di Ezio, giustiziato da Valentiniano. Capi’ che l’Impero era marcio e che la sua fine poteva essere ritardata ma non evitata. Scomparso Avito non volle succedergli perche’ le leve del comando era meglio controllarle come primo ministro di un sovrano esautorato. Si limito’ ad assumere il titolo di “Patrizio” con cui gli veniva riconosciuto il diritto di proclamarsi padre dell’Imperatore. Giubilato Avito colloco’ sul trono Maggioriano, ex-aiutante di campo di Ezio al cui fianco avrebbe fatto una rapida carriera se la moglie del generale non lo avesse fatto silurare. Come Cincinnato e Teodosio, Maggioriano si era ritirato in campagna ad allevare polli, in attesa di tempi migliori. Quando Ezio fu assassinato, Valentiniano III lo rcihiamo’. Fu in questa occasione che conobbe Recimero. Per i Romani l’elezione di Maggioriano fu un elemento di ordinaria amministrazione. Dopo l’inconorazione, il nuovo Augusto lesse al Senato un messaggio pieno di deferenza in cui dichiarava di assumere la porpora per volonta’ dei suoi rappresentanti e nel supremo interesse della Patria. I Senatori quando lo udirono trasecolarono. Da tempo immemorabile non erano piu’ abituati a sentirsi trattare con tanto riguardo.


L’incoronazione di Maggioriano riporto’ alla ribalta Sidonio Apollinare. Il poeta, dopo la scomparsa di Avito, era caduto in disgrazia. Fu perdonato perche’ era l’unico poeta dell’Impero. Il panegirico dedicato a Maggioriano riscosse gli stessi consensi di quello indirizzato ad Avito. In entrambi I componimenti -della stessa lunghezza e nello stesso metro- Sidonio aveva detto suppergiu’ le stesse cose. Come ricompensa, fu esonerato dalle tasse.


Maggioriano fu un buon Imperatore. Poiche’ gli Italiani non facevano piu’ figli, proibi’ alle donne di prendere I voti prima dei quarant’anni, obbligo’ le vedove a rimaritarsi, impedi’ ai giovani di farsi monaci e puni’ gli speculatori che per costruire nuovi edifici abbattevano quelli antichi dimostrando che a Roma i Vandali erano del tutto superflui. Ma questa saggezza gli costo’ cara.


Ricimero non tardo’ ad accorgersi che Maggioriano voleva fare l’Imperatore sul serio e nel maggio del 460 lo depose. Maggioriano si ritiro’ a vita privata in una villa vicino Roma dove pochi anni dopo -riferisce Procopio- mori’ di dissenteria.


Tolto dalla scena un sovrano che avrebbe meritato di restarci, Ricimero, nel novembre del 461, incorono’ a Ravenna Augusto un certo Libio Severo, lucano di nascita. Di costui sappiamo solo che regno’ quattro anni, visse religiosamente e mori’ avvelenato. Dopo di lui il trono resto’ vacante per due anni.


Il suo successore Antemio era genero del defunto Imperatore d’Oriente Marciano. Fu deposto per inettitudine nell’aprile del 472. Ricimero incorono’ allora un certo Olibio, che non fece in tempo a deporre perche’ dopo un mese un’emorragia uccise lui.


Con la sua morte si chiude la serie di quei generali barbari che negli ultimi tempi avevano retto le sorti dell’Occidente, colmando il vuoto di un potere che gli Imperatori non erano piu’ in grado di esercitare. Per sedici anni Ricimero era riuscito a tenera a galla una barca che faceva acqua da tutte le parti e le cui falle nessuno era in grado di tamponare. Olibio non ebbe neppure il tempo di accorgersi di quello che gli stava succedendo intorno: un attacco di idropisia lo elimino’. Prima di morire, aveva nominato “patrizio” il nipote di Ricimero, il principe burgundo Gundobado, che nel marzo del 473, dopo un interregno di cinque mesi, proclamo’ Imperatore a Ravenna Glicerio. Di costui sappiamo solo che costui quando l’Italia fu minacciata dagli Ostrogoti, egli ando’ incontro al loro re Teodorico, lo colmo’ di doni e lo indusse ad abbandonare la Penisola e marciare sulla Gallia che, se non di fatto, almeno sulla carta apparteneva ancora all’Impero. Ma questo tradimento gli costo’ il trono sul quale balzo’ un generale di nome Giulio Nepote. Gundobado preferi’ fuggire in Burgundia, dove lo attendeva la corona di un regno meno glorioso di quello romano, ma certamente piu’ comodo.


Giuliio Nepote governo’ quattordici mesi e consegno’ l’Alvernia ai Visigoti. I Romani non glierlo perdonarono e il suo luogotenente Oreste, nell’estate del 475 lo depose e proclamo’ Imperatore a Ravenna il figlio Romolo Augustolo. Oreste era nato in Pannonia, era entrato al servizio di Attila, e lo abbiamo gia’ incontrato, col suo collega Edecone, alla testa dell’ambasceria che il “flagello” aveva mandato a Costantinopoli nel 448. Il matrimonio con una nobildonna greca gli aveva spalancato le porte della societa’ bizantina. Anche lui come Stilicone e Ricimero, non indosso’ la porpora e si accontento’ del titolo di “Patrizio”. Era un uomo ambizioso, ma ottuso. Quando gli Eruli calarono in Italia e reclamarono un terzo del suo territorio per acquartierarvisi, Oreste glielo rifiuto’. Il loro capo, Odoacre, gli dichiaro’ guerra e marcio’ su Pavia dove egli era riparato. Dopo due giorni di assedio la citta’ capitolo’ e fu spianata al suolo. Gli Eruli sgozzarono I suoi abitanti e non risparmiarono neanche I vecchi ed I bambini. Fu un massacro in piena regola, nello stile di Attila e di Genserico. Ma ci si dimentico’ di Oreste il quale, per la seconda volta, riusci’ a mettersi in salvo a Piacenza. Fu scovato dopo una settimana e passato per le armi sommariamente. Sorte migliore ebbe il figlio Romolo Augustolo. Odoacre gli rispiarmo’ la vita, un po’ per la sua giovane eta’, un po’ per la sua straordinaria bellezza, e gli concesse di trascorrere il resto dei suoi giorni in una villa vicino Napoli, con una pensione annua di seimila soldi.;


Odoacre era figlio di quell’Edecone che con Oreste aveva fatto parte del servizio diplomatico di Attila. Il modo in cui tratto’ il vecchio amico di suo padre, sulle cui ginocchia veva saltato da bambino, ci dice abbastanza del suo carattere. Egli governo’ l’Italia per diciassette anni, dal 476 al 493. C’era venuto dopo la dissoluzione dell’ordae e nell’esercito imperiale aveva fatto una rapida carriera, proporzionata ai suoi meriti, ch’erano grandi, e all’inettitudine degli Imperatori, che era grandissima. Lo storico Eugippio ce lo descrive di notevole statura, rosso di pelo e con un gran paio di baffi biondi. L’Imperatore Zenone lo nomino’ “Patrizio”, che era un riconoscimento puramente formale. Gli Eruli lo acclamarono Re e gli conferirono, col titolo, I pieni poteri. Sotto di lui vincitori e vinti coabitarono senza fondersi. Le antihe magistrature dai tempi di Silla e di Cocerone e le gloriose cariche repubblicane nominalmente sopravvissero allo sconquasso dell’Impero; ma ormai non contavano piu’ nulla, come non contava piu’ nulla il Senato, esautorato da questo capitano di ventura ricoperto di pelli di montone. L’Italia era piombata nel Medioevo. Cominciavano I secoli bui. (n.d.a. Davvero???)


B) GLI ULTIMI ATTORI DELLA ROMA REPUBBLICHINA


Nonostante che la tecnologia dei tempi repubblichini sia diventata qualcosa di neanche immaginabile per i tempi imperiali, la gestione del potere rimane sempre la stessa, con gli stessi trucchi, gli stessi inganni, la stessa sete di potere, la stessa corruzione e lo stesso modo di fare.


Da quindici anni i Romani della Roma repubblichina sono con un Parlamento non eletto legittimamente, ma non risulta che se ne sentano sconvolti. Un Parlamento illegittimo ha votato illegittimamente dei Presidenti della Repubblica, che hanno nominato illegittimamente dei Governi votati da un Parlamento illegittimo, e che hanno nominato illegittimamente, quindi, dirigenti di aziende statali e funzionari pubblici.


Tutta questa gente di pubblico non ha che il titolo: le loro nomine sono private e le loro funzioni sono quelle dovute all’arricchimento proprio e dei loro “clientes”. Il potere lo esercitano con volgare facciatosta ed indegnita’ fregandosene della legalita’, e del rispetto dei cittadini.


I cronisti odierni riferiscono che sull’Urbe violentata e saccheggiata da politicanti ed organizzazioni criminali si e’ stesa una coltre di apatia.


Cittadini validi e onesti si tengono a distanza dalla politica perche’ non hanno idea da dove cominciare per riportare la legalita’, e sono schifati dalla politica. Ebbene, la politica e’ come la merda: ci schifa. Ora, se incontriamo una merda per la strada, accuratamente la evitiamo; ma quando la merda ci entra in casa, non possiamo schifarci, ma dobbiamo prendere la pala e buttarla fuori.


E’ in questa atmosfera stracca e neghittosa che i piu’ si aspettano che venga da regioni italiane o da qualsiasi altro posto un qualcuno in grado di ripristinare la legalita’.


E’ cosi’ che alla fine dell’estate del 2017, varca la soglia del Quirinale un giovane nobile dell’entroterra terremotata, una zona della Repubblica italiana imbestialita da bla bla bla inutili e bugiardi come e’ stato sempre abitudine dello Stato. Il suo nome e’ XXX, ma nessuno in citta’ aveva mai udito prima il suo nome. Qualcuno dice che e’ il nuovo Salvatore. I Romani lo accolgono con indifferenza e non gli vanno neppure incontro, tanta e’ l’assuefazione agli usurpatori.


XXX caccia a calci il Presidente usurpatore eletto illegittimamente e si insedia col nome di Salvatore I ed incita i cittadini alla rinascita con queste parole:


“La Repubblica italiana e’ marcia e la sua fine potrebbe essere ritardata, ma non evitata. Il suo marciume nasce dal fatto che le entrate tributarie sono altissime perche’ voi pavidi pagate e, quando non potete pagare, vi suicidate. Non suicidatevi, ribellatevi. Non pagate piu’ imposte, tasse e balzelli e la Repubblica delle banane si affloscera’ come si affloscio’ l’Impero Romano d’Occidente. Troppi di voi hanno paura di vedersi i beni pignorati se non pagano il richiesto all’Erario, ma vi invito a ragionare. Se non pagate la Repubblica delle banane si sgonfia in due giorni e, ammesso che abbia ancora la forza di pignorare i vostri beni, ve li dovrebbe lasciare in custodia in attesa di possibili compratori. Ma chi potrebbe comprare se tutti, dico tutti, sono pignorati? La fonte della corruzione, dei privilegi e delle disuguaglianze e’ la vostra contribuzione all’Erario. Politicanti e criminali si ingozzano perche’ ci sono i vostri soldi da spendere. Quelli di voi, che hanno la pancia piena, hanno la testa vuota, per questo non si turbano, ne’ si preoccupano. Non dimenticate, pero’ che i Romani ricchi, cioe’ i privilegiati, furono schiavizzati, o costretti a diventare servi della gleba. Non fate affidamento su costoro per modificare la vostra triste condizione, ma organizzatevi e ritrovate un po’ di responsabilita’ sociale, ora piu’ che mai indispensabile per cambiare questo Stato putrido.


Gettate nella spazzatura tutte quelle centinaia di migliaia di bizantinismi e leggi inutili che sono stati utili solo per la burocrazia e le ruberie dei politicanti.


Pensate innanzitutto a come organizzare una nuova forma di scambio che favorisca sia una produzione che un consumo etico. Pensate a come gestire quello che i cittadini di lingua anglosassone chiamano “welfare”. Pensate a come amministrare la giustizia e a quali e quante leggi vi sono necessarie per regolare la vita sociale.Non dimenticate che nella Bibbia (sia per chi ci crede che per ci non ci crede) trovate la “Legge Aurea”, una semplice frase che vale come legge universale sia per quello che oggi chiamano diritto civile, che diritto penale. Non lasciatevi illudere dalla ricchezza materiale o farete la stessa fine di quelli che oggi campano di privilegi alle vostre spalle.


Meditate, gente, meditate e ribellatevi, non suicidatevi.

          L'ultima Roma imperiale e l'ultima Roma repubblichina      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

a) L’ULTIMA ROMA IMPERIALE

Da “Storia d’Italia, Vol. 4, pagg. 143 e segg., Montanelli e Gervaso, RCS 1994, Milano”, citiamo:

Non risulta che i Romani, o per meglio dire gli abitanti di Roma, si rendessero esatto conto di cio’ che significava la decisione di Odoacre di spedire a Costantinopoli le insegne imperiali e di abolire la carica di Augusto. Il Senato, che pro-forma si riuniva per avallare le decisioni del tirannello di turno, lo considero’ un fatto di ordinaria amministrazione, anzi lo saluto’ come una provvida riunificazione dell’Impero dopo la divisione fattane da Costantino. Che tutto l’Occidente se ne fosse separato; che Roma, una volta caput mundi, non lo fosse piu’ neanche dell’Italia, la quale ormai gravitava piu’ su Milano e Ravenna; che la Penisola non fosse piu’ che la remota propaggine di un Impero che si proclamava ancora Romano, ma che in realta’ era soltanto grecorientale, parvero loro tutte cose di scarso rilievo e di secondaria importanza.

Questa indifferenza e’ significativa. Non che, intendiamoci, all’atto pratico il Senato avesse la possibilita’ e i mezzi di opporsi. Se avesse osato, per dirla con Mussolini, i Lanzichenecchi di Odoacre avrebbero fatto di quell’aula sorda e grigia un loro bivacco. Ma almeno un addio alle aquile ed ai fasci littori, cioe’ a ottocento anni di Storia e di Gloria, avrebbe potuto risuonarvi. Invece, niente. Fra gli epigoni di quella che era stata la piu’ rigogliosa aristocrazia del mondo, non se ne trovo’ uno disposto a pronunciare un epitaffio.

L’ultimo Senatore degno di questo nome era stato Simmaco, alle cui “Lettere” dobbiamo il piu’ gradevole ritratto dell’agonizzante Roma imperiale. Veniva da una grande famiglia di Consoli e Prefetti, che avevano servito con la medesima accortezza gli interessi dello Stato e quelli propri, come dimostrava l’immenso patrimonio che avevano accumulato. Fra l’altro essi avevano disseminato, dal Lago di Garda alla Baia di Napoli, una catena di sontuose ville, in modo da poter scorrazzare la Penisola senza lo scomodo di uscire di casa.

Simmaco era l’ultimo rappresentante della cultura pagana, sebbene di fatto di religione si proclamasse agnostico. “Che importanza ha” disse all’imperatore Valentiniano “quale strada si sceglie per giungere al Vero? Quel che conta sapere e’ che non si arrivera’ mai a scoprirlo”. Gran signore ed intimo amico di Vezio Pretestato, capo della minoranza pagana in Senato, egli fu designato a patrocinarla nella sua ultima battaglia contro il Cristianesimo. L’imperatore Graziano, completamente dominato da Ambrogio, sulla fine del quarto secolo ordino’ la chiusura e la confisca di tutti i templi dedicati agli dei e la rimozione dal Senato della statua della Vittoria che Augusto vi aveva installato. Simmaco si oppose con un discorso degno del miglior Cicerone, e fu bandito da Graziano. Morto costui e succedutogli Valentiniano II, Simmaco riprese la sua battaglia oratoria e l’avrebbe vinta sull’animo del nuovo giovane imperatore, se Ambrogio non fosse intervenuto con la sua foga abituale. Il Vescovo di Milano trionfo’ perche’ aveva dalla sua la fede. Simmaco non aveva che la ragione. Le sue “lettere” sono una limpida, ma parziale descrizione della Roma dei suoi tempi, dal punto di vista dei ricchi privilegiati, che ancora vi mantenevano posizioni di rielievo, sia pure soltanto decorative.

Quella che non lo e’ piu’ sul piano politico, e’ ancora pero’ la capitale intellettuale dell’Occidente, dove chiunque voglia parlare al mondo civile e’ costretto a venire ad imparare la lingua e i costumi e per trovare gli strumenti di diffusione. Nei palazzi si sono accumulati libri ed oggetti d’arte. Vi sono tappeti che costano fino a duecento milioni di lire. Battaglioni di cuochi preparano pranzi sontuosi. E dalle conversazioni e’ bandita ogni parola che non sia del piu’ classico latino. Questa societa’ non e’ chiusa. Accoglie tutti coloro, indigeni o forestieri, che in qualche modo fanno spicco, ma gli impone la sua etichetta. Le ambizioni sono piu’ intellettuali che politiche. Tuttavia la dedizione al bene pubblico e’ ancora grande. Questa classe dirigente, lungi dal trarre profitto dalle sue cariche amministrative e diplomatiche (di quelle militari ha perso persino il ricordo) se le mantiene finanziando di tasca propria circhi e teatri.

E’ un ceto signorile di altissima civilta’ che non ruba piu’ perche’ i suoi avi hanno gia’ rubato abbastanza, e alla cui porta tutti i forestieri, barbari o meno, fanno ressa per essere accolti.


C’e’ senza dubbio del vero in questo attraente ritratto, ma visto da una parte sola. L’altra ce la fornisce un cristiano, anzi un prete di Marsiglia, Salviano, nel suo libro “Il governo di Dio”, di cui Agostino ebbe probabilmente conoscenza.


Salviano non vede che oppressione, corruzione e immoralita’, a differ

enza di quanto avviene nelle societa’ barbariche, rozze ma certamente dallo spirito di sacrificio, di un sentimento di solidarieta’ e di fratellanza e dalla legge dell’onore. “Roma muore e ride” dice questo puritano che non l’ama e che forse ha letto un po’ troppo di Tacito. Ma anche nella sua descrizione del vero c’e’.

La citta’ aveva in quel momento meno di duecentomila abitanti, fra i quali i Romani di razza dovevano contarsi, al massimo, a centinaia. Dai tempi di Cesare essa era una metropoli in prevalenza orientale, che si era abituata a vivere parassitariamente alle spalle delle province romanizzate. A parte una cartiera e una fabbrica di coloranti, le sue uniche industrie erano la politica ed il saccheggio. Quest’ultimo aveva riempito il suo tesoro pubblico e quelli privati come nel secolo decimonono il saccheggio coloniale avrebbe fruttato la ricchezza dell’Inghilterra. Ma esso era finito da un pezzo, ormai: da quando Costantinopoli bloccava I mercati orientali e le invasioni barbariche avevano paralizzato quelle occidentali. Da allora sempre piu’ Roma ma aveva dovuto contare solo sulla Penisola. Ma neanche qui le cose andavano bene. La popolazione complessiva non superava i cinque milioni. Ma ai guai della decadenza demografica dovevano aggiungersi quelli del declino della classe media. Dai Gracchi in poi Roma aveva sempre lottato per ricostruire o puntellare quella societa’ contadina di coltivatori diretti che davano i mgliori soldati all’esercito e i migliori funzionari all’amministrazione. Ma il sistema fiscale del basso Impero l’aveva definitivamente rovinata. La Tributaria era talmente corrotta e prevaricatrice che, stando a Salviano, per la prima volta nel terzo secolo si videro cittadini romani fuggire, per salvarsi, oltre la “cortina di ferro” del limes, e rifugiarsi presso i barbari.

L’imperatore Valentiniano I ne fu cosi’ colpito che istitui’ una nuova professione: quella dei “Difensori della Citta” cui erano affidati i reclami contro il fisco. Ma nessun rimedio di legge e’ valido quando il costume si corrompe. I memorialisti del tempo hanno lasciato scritto che coloro che vivevano sulle tasse erano piu’ numerosi di coloro che dovevano pagarle. Ed era la conseguenza di due fenomeni ugualmente deleteri e che si sviluppano sempre di pari passo: da una parte il proliferare della burocrazia, dall’altra l’assottigliamento dei contribuenti. I quali, incapaci di far fronte al fisco, sempre piu’ vendevano il podere o la piccola fattoria al latifondista, facendosene assumere in qualita’ di coloni, cioe’ pressappoco di servi della gleba.

Fu questo il vero inizio del Medioevo almeno dal punto di vista sociale, e comincio’ a verificarsi prima dell’arrivo dei barbari.

Da quando le guerre di conquista erano finite, era cessato anche l’afflusso degli schiavi. E quindi i grandi proprietarierano ben contenti di assoldare come contadini quelli piccoli, dopo everne ricomprato le terre. Costro, dal canto proprio, cercavano un padrone: non solo per sottrasi alla Tributaria, ma anche per avere in lui un protettore nello scompiglio che si andava accentuando. Il grande feudatario, che sin qui aveva vissuto un po’ nel suo palazzo a Roma, un po’ nella sua villa di campagna, comincia a cambiare visionomia, e si trasforma nel potente che e’ gia’ l’inizio del Feudalesimo. La villa che finora tirava soltanto al comodo e al bello perche’ alla sua protezione accudivano i Prefetti e i Generali con le loro forze di polizia, adesso cerca anche la sicurezza e si trasforma piano piano in castello, cioe’ in fortilizio, perche’ lo Stato non e’ piu’ sempre in grado di difenderla dai briganti che infestano le contrade e dai “federati” che cominciano a calarvi e con essi spesso si confondono. Quello che invece non cambia e’ il rapporto umano fra il padrone ed il colono, che si e’ da poco sostituito allo schiavo ma che il padrone seguita a trattare come tale.

Questa e’ una delle ragioni per cui il Feudalesimo, fenomeno tipicamente germanico, in Italia attecchi’ prima che altrove, ma vi ebbe anche la vita piu’ corta. I barbari che non si erano allenati al comando sugli schiavi, avevano del vassallaggio un’idea molto piu’ umana dei Romani, perche’ lo esercitavano sui loro fratelli, quindi con molte limitazioni e garanzie. I Romani invece si erano sempre riconosciuti il diritto di disporre della vita dei loro dipendenti, e vi avevano contratto una specie di vizio mentale. Paolino di Pella si congratulava della propria mentalita’ scrivendo, in questi tempi, di essersi sempre contentato, quanto a concubine, delle serve: il che costituiva, secondo lui, solo l’esercizio di un diritto. In questo contado scarsamente popolato da una plebe di mezzadri e di braccianti senz’altra protezione che quella grazisamente concessa dai potenti, solo costoro vivevano agiatamente, perche’ quasi tutto il reddito veniva rastrellato a Roma. Ma anche qui ci si guardava dal distribuirlo equamente. Mentre Simmaco iscriveva nel suo registro dei conti la spesa di oltre cinquecentomilioni di lire per uno spettacolo nel Circo, dove trenta gladiatori sassoni preferivano strangolarsi ciascuno con le proprie mani piuttosto che sbudellarsi l’un l’altro, un vasto proletariato viveva solo di sussidi, di elemosine e di piccoli intrallazzi, approfittando di ogni disordine per dedicarsi al saccheggio di banche e negozi.

Ad Ammiano Marcellino, che vi giunse alla fine del quarto secolo da Antiochia, Roma fece l’impressione di una citta; piacevole e corrotta, dove la raffinatezza e la crudelta’, l’intelligenza ed il cinismo, il lusso e la miseria, la tradizione e l’anarchia si mescolavano in dosi abbastanza robuste. Ammiano scriveva in un latino un po’ imparaticcio, ma era un imparziale galantuomo, a cui il paganesimo non impedi’ per esempio di condannare Giuliano l’Apostata per I suoi tentativi contro le liberta’ cristiane. E al suo giudizio ci crediamo, anche perche’ conferma sia il ritratto in rosa di Simmaco che quello in nero di Salviano. Le due Rome, quella splendida dei pochi e quella miserabile dei molti, convivevano. E si capisce come’essa potesse apparire diversa secondo gli occhi che la guardavano. Altri due cronisti forestieri, Macrobio e Claudiano, non videro che la prima, forse perche’ ebbero la ventura di essere accolti nella buona societa’. Ma le loro descrizioni puzzano di omaggio. Anch’essi, tuttavia ci aiutano a capire come mai Roma accettasse con tanta facilita’ la sua spoliazione del titolo di Capitale dell’Impero.

Tutte le decadenze in tutti i luoghi e in tutti i tempi sono contrassegnate dai medesimi fenomeni: le accresciute distanze sociali fra un numero sempre piu’ piccolo di privilegiati e una massa sempre piu’ grande di derelitti, l’affievolimento di ogni vincolo di solidarieta’, e la totale indifferenza di tutti agli interessi della comunita’.

Nei salotti della ricca Roma, quasi tutta pagana, si parlava di Cicerone e di Catullo, si citava Aristotele, si corbellavano I Generali barbari, le loro rozze maniere, i loro errori di pronuncia e di ortografia. Nei “bassi” della povera Roma cristiana ci si arrangiava come si poteva e si era troppo impegnati a mettere daccordo il desinare con la cena per potersi preoccupare dell’Impero, dello Stato, del Passato e del Futuro.

Che un lanzichenecco tedesco cresciuto alla corte di Attila, come Odoacre, avesse rispedito le aquile e i fasci a Costantinopoli e stesse governando l’Italia come un Re indipendente, non interessava a nessuno.

A intendere e ad esprimere in tutta la sua grandezza e tragicita’ questa catastrofe ci fu solo un poeta. Ma non era romano, e nemmeno italiano. Era un gallo nativo forse di Tolosa, forse di Narbona, si chiamava Rutilio Namaziano, veniva dalla carriera amministrativa, ed era prefetto in Toscana e in Umbria. Prima di tornarsene in patria bsotto l’incalzare delle invasioni visigote e vandale, volle pagare il suo debito di gratitudine a Roma, che aveva fatto di lui un uomo civile e colto, dedicandole un’apostrofe che dimostra quanto quella civilta’ e cultura egli le avesse assimilate. Forse il suo libro “De reditu” e’ l’ultimo capolavoro della latinita’ classica. Comunque, lo e’ certamente l’addio all’Urbe che vi e’ incluso:

Ascolta, regina bellissima di un mondo che hai fatto tuo,

o Roma, accolta negli stellati cieli, asolta madre di uomini e di dei.

Non lontani dal cielo siamo noi quando ci troviamo nei tuoi templi….

Tu spargi i tuoi doni eguali ai raggi del sole

per ovunque in cerchio fluttua l’Oceano…

Non ti fermarono le sabbie infocate di Libia,

non l’estrema terra armata di ghiaccio ti respinse….

Facesti una patria sola di genti diverse,

giovo’ a chi era senza leggi diventare tuo tributario

poiche’ tu trasformavi gli uomini in cittadini

e una citta’ facesti di cio’ che prima non era che un globo.


Non si poteva dire di piu’, ne’ meglio. Questo barbaroi dal cuore traboccante di affetto, di riconoscenza, di ammirazione, aveva composto per Roma il piu’ bell’epitaffio in un latino degno di Virgilio. Ma i Romani non lo lessero. E ancor oggi il nome di Namaziano e’ noto solo a pochi studiosi.

b) L’ULTIMA ROMA REPUBBLICHINA

Questa e’ la Roma che oggi ospita due Stati: la Citta’ del Vaticano (Santa Sede) e la Repubblica italiana.

La citta’ del Vaticano rappresenta lo Stato temporale della comunita’ cristiana che prende le redini della citta’ dal VI secolo dopo Cristo e non lo lascia fino alla sedicente unita’ d’Italia.

La Repubblica italiana rappresenta lo stato di una comunita’ unificata con la forza e tenuta assieme con l’inganno.

Alla Santa Sede ora non si pagano piu’ tributi, ma neanche essa ne paga per il mantenimento della citta’.

Alla Repubblica italiana si pagano tributi salatissimi che servono ad alimentare i suoi clientes, non certo per contribuire ad aiutare chi ne ha bisogno (vedi ultimi terremotati), per le quali imposte piu’ di un centinaio di piccoli imprenditori si sono suicidati. Strani costoro, che invece di ribellarsi si suicidano (ma che volete, questi sono gli Italiani).

Sia la Santa Sede (gia’ Papato) che la Repubblica italiana (gia’ Regno d’Italia e poi Impero) soffrono degli stessi problemi che afflissero la Roma imperiale: le accresciute distanze sociali fra un numero sempre piu’ piccolo di privilegiati e una massa sempre piu’ grande di derelitti, l’affievolimento di ogni vincolo di solidarieta’, e la totale indifferenza di tutti agli interessi della comunita’.

In entrambi questi Stati, corruzione, privilegi e ruberie sono gli elementi caratterstici della classe governante, incapace a governare, ma capacissima a depredare lo Stato. Addirittura molti Italiani confondono i privilegi, che chiamano “diritti acquisiti con le lotte sindacali” con i diritti naturali.

I diritti naturali sono innati ed uguali per tutti, mentre i privilegi sono acquisiti con la forza e diversi per ogni classe che ne gode.

Nel paragrafo precedente abbiamo citato: “La Tributaria era talmente corrotta e prevaricatrice che, stando a Salviano, per la prima volta nel terzo secolo si videro cittadini romani fuggire, per salvarsi, oltre la “cortina di ferro” del limes, e rifugiarsi presso i barbari.”

Nella Repubblica italiana le cose non sono affatto cambiate, ma qui i cittadini preferiscono il suicidio alla ribellione. Parlo con il massimo rispetto per questi suicidi che, invece di essere condannati, dovrebbero essere vendicati”.

Uno dei Ministri (tra i piu’ idioti) della Repubblica delle banane ha affermato pubblicamente che tutti coloro che se ne vanno dall’Italia costituiscono un bene, perche’ non hanno voglia di lavorare. Costui, oltre che essere idiota, e’ anche un ottimo camuffatore della realta’, perche’ deve proteggere le sue banane.

Nella Repubblica delle banane si verifica lo stesso fenomeno avuto nella Roma del tardo impero: “coloro che vivevano sulle tasse erano piu’ numerosi di coloro che dovevano pagarle.”

La Repubblica italiana ha circa cinquecentomila uomini in armi pronti a difenderla perche’ da essa ricevono lo stipendio; ha inoltre piu’ di dieci milioni di dipendenti pubblici, parapubblici, o collusi con il pubblico, che non hanno nessuna voglia di rinunciare ai loro privilgi e pronti a scendere in piazza per difenderli anche con la forza, visto che ne hanno perche’ ricevono lauti compensi.


Lo scrivente e’ demoralizzato e finanche mortificato per questa realta’ e, purtroppo, ancora non vede nessuno all’orizzonte capace di terminare questo schifo con la stessa sorte che tocco’ alla Roma del Tardo Impero, ma non dispera. Giambattista Vico non ha mai sbagliato con la sua teoria dei “Corsi e ricosri storici”. Prima o poi ci sara’ un nuovo Odoacre che fara’ fare alla Repubblica delle banane la stessa fine dell’Impero romano d’occidente: ci sara’ certamente qualcuno che non potendo riconsegnare le insegne a nessun altro, probabilmente le brucera’ e con esse brucera’ le chiappe a tutti gli schifosi privilegiati che usurpano gli interessi della collettivita’.

Meditate, gente, meditate e, soprattutto, ribellatevi.


Costa adriatica, aprile 2017.

İZMİR'in Menderes ilçesinde geçen yıl çıkan, ilçe tarihinin en büyük orman yangınında, 1000 hektar orman ile 200 dönüm tarım arazisi kül oldu. 67 saatte kontrol altına alınabilen yangın sonrası ekipler, ağaçlandırma çalışması için seferber oldu. Bölgeye yaklaşık 800 bin kızılçam ile çeşitli meyve fidanları dikilirken, bal ormanları oluşturuldu.

Kentin en gür ormanlarının bulunduğu, 'İzmir'in akciğerleri' Menderes bölgesinde, 1 Temmuz 2017 tarihinde yangın çıktı. Ormanlıkta bırakılan kırık cam şişenin parçasının sıcakta mercek görevi görmesiyle yangının çıktığı anlaşıldı. Kente içme suyunun sağlandığı Tahtalı Barajı'nın havzasında kalan yemyeşil alan, yerini kapkara görüntüye bıraktı. Doğal hayatın büyük zarar gördüğü yangında, 1000 hektar orman ile 200 dönüm tarım arazisi kül oldu. Bölgede başta zeytin, badem ve armut ağaçlarının bulunduğu 200 dönüm zirai arazinin zarar gördüğü tespit edildi. Arıca süs bitkileri üretiminin de yapıldığı bölgede bir sera kül oldu. Yangında traktör ve minibüs ile tarımda kullanılan ekipman da küle döndü. Yangın nedeniyle çok sayıda arı kovanı zarar görürken, arılar ise telef oldu. Yangının tamamen söndürülmesinden sonra ağaçlandırma çalışmalarına vakit kaybedilmeden başlandı.

BÖLGEDE SEFERBERLİK

Yangın çıkan bölgede orman ekipleri, seferberlik ilan etti. Alevlerin sardığı alandaki yanan ağaçlar, kesilip, buradan taşındı. Toprak, yangının kötü etkilerinden tamamen temizlendi. Yeni araştırmalar sonrası bilimsel çalışmalarla incelenen arazinin yapısına göre, teraslamalar yapıldı. Nisan ayında, Başbakan Binali Yıldırım'ın katıldığı törenle bölgeye kurulacak 'bereket ormanları'nın ilk fidanları dikildi. Bölgede tamamlanan çalışmalar sonrası 580 bin kızılçam, 120 bin kara selvi, 20 bin dut ile yabani elma, badem, ceviz, akasya, defne, akağaç ve katalpa dikildi. Yine bölgede 300 dekarlık alanda bal ormanı kuruldu. Bu alana da en lezzetli balların yapılması için toplam 63 bin 400 lavanta ve kekik ile yabani elma, dut, biberiye, badem, akasya, ahlat, iğde fidanı dikildi.

Simon e Robyn si trasferiscono a Chicago in una nuova e bellissima casa. In un centro commerciale si imbattono in Gordon, un ex compagno di scuola di Simon: la coppia lo invita a cena e Gordon si comporta in maniera curiosa, così come bizzarra è la sua abitudine di lasciare dei regali davanti al loro uscio di casa. Nel momento in cui la presenza di Gordon comincia a farsi troppo assidua, specie quando Robyn è in casa da sola, Simon decide di parlargli e di chiedergli di non farsi più vedere. Un gesto dalle conseguenze inaspettate.
Una prova sorprendente quella di Joel Edgerton, qui in veste di regista, sceneggiatore e attore, nei panni del presunto stalker Gordon, detto Gordo. Se per il ruolo adotta un look confuso e disturbante come il suo personaggio - orecchino, tinta rossiccia dei capelli, sguardo fisso - il lavoro a livello di messa in scena è mirabile. Edgerton confeziona un B-movie che non si vergogna dei propri ingombranti riferimenti - Cape Fear per il disturbo della quiete domestica, Cattive compagnie per il rapporto che si instaura tra i due personaggi maschili - ma se esteriormente riprende tecniche di tensione e situazioni tipiche del thriller classico, il lavoro sui simboli e su ciò che non si vede è molto più sottile. Tra Simon e Gordon da subito si instaura una dinamica servo-padrone sottolineata dall'uso delle inquadrature: Gordon occupa lo sfondo del campo o i suoi bordi, si pone fisicamente ai margini del quadro, come si è posto ai margini dell'esistenza. La sua è una natura remissiva, benché disturbata, il suo sentimento di rivalsa non si esprime secondo i binari consueti. Al contrario Simon e Robyn (o meglio l'idea che Simon ha di Robyn nella coppia) ostentano il loro successo sociale ed esistenziale attraverso una casa dove le finestre sostituiscono le pareti e sono sempre presenti ospiti gradevoli ed eleganti per festeggiare qualcosa. Una relazione di interdipendenza (ogni aguzzino ha bisogno di una vittima, meglio se consensuale) quella tra Simon e Gordon, che rimanda a un segreto sul loro passato celato agli occhi di Robyn (e del mondo).
L'ambizione figlia dell'esasperata competitività del reaganismo, che attraversava il succitato Cattive compagnie, ha lasciato il posto a una coazione a ripetere insensata. Sembra che non si sappia più perché si sgomiti pur di "arrivare" a qualsiasi costo, quasi si trattasse di una reazione pavloviana alla società, più che qualcosa di pianificato. Questa insolita componente autodistruttiva, che accompagna personaggi che vanno al di là delle loro maschere consuete, porta a sorvolare su alcune manchevolezze e semplificazioni del plot, che abbondano soprattutto nell'ultima parte, facendo di Edgerton un'interessante voce nuova del contesto sub-hollywoodiano.

Ktm 390 Duke Robada 2

El pasado mes de junio ocurrió una de esas historias que nos llenan de fe en el colectivo motero. Los robos son una de las peores pesadillas de cualquier aficionado a las dos ruedas y los ladrones son una amenaza constante para cualquier motero. Pero los robos a veces tienen un final feliz, como el que hoy nos ocupa.

Esta historia es la prueba de que con un poco de colaboración colectiva, el uso de las redes sociales para algo más que compartir memes y unos nervios de acero se puede recuperar una moto sustraída de la que todos podemos aprender una valiosa lección.

De cómo te roban una KTM personalizada y la recuperas casi intacta

Ktm 390 Duke Robada

El protagonista de esta historia es Shmuel Avital, un exmilitar israelí que emigró a Estados Unidos, se asentó en Nueva York y abrió el Spiegel, un conocido restaurante del East Village. Avital acudía al trabajo todos los días en su preciada KTM 390 Duke personalizada y la aparcaba en la puerta de su local, hasta que un día la moto simplemente desapareció.

La 390 Duke estaba desprovista de todos sus plásticos, con un depósito ahora pintado en azul con líneas blancas y negras (decoración clásica de la marca) en contraste con el chasis y las llantas naranjas de KTM, calzada con neumáticos de tacos y un faro delantero redondo clásico con cristal amarillo Hella. Todo el cariño que Shmuel puso en su moto se esfumó.

Avital inmediatamente subió fotos de su moto a sus redes sociales junto a su número de teléfono. Aprovechando su gran cantidad de contactos en Nueva York el suceso rápidamente se hizo muy conocido entre los grupos de moteros neoyorquinos, especialmente entre los Missfires, Motofellas y NYC Classic Riders, tres grupos que se precisamente se reunían en el Spiegel los martes por la noche.

Al día siguiente un conductor de autobuses que hacía su ruta por el Bronx y que se había enterado del robo vio pasar la moto junto a él e inmediatamente avisó a Avital, quien no se lo pensó dos veces, avisó a Brian Hamilton, un amigo de la Highway Patrol, y salió en busca de su moto con su otra montura, una KTM 1290 Super Adventure R.

Ktm 390 Duke Robada 3

Ayudado por las indicaciones del conductor de autobús, Avital logró encontrar a Dequavias Lewis, el supuesto ladrón de su moto quien estaba conduciéndola por el Bronx y... no hizo nada. Sólo siguió a Lewis hasta que se paró y entonces... tampoco hizo nada. Shmuel entró al delincuente para hablar sobre la moto tan peculiar que llevaba y simuló estar interesado en comprársela.

Lewis comenzó asegurando que se la acababa de comprar para posteriormente cambiar su versión a que sencillamente no era suya, pero Avital mantuvo la calma y continuó distrayendo a Lewis hasta que Hamilton llegó al lugar donde ambos se encontraban.

En el momento que Lewis vio el coche patrulla y se dio cuenta de lo que estaba ocurriendo intentó huir a pie, pero Avital estuvo rápido y placó al malhechor hasta que el policía le detuvo para posteriormente tenerse que enfrentar a cargos de tenencia de propiedad robada y conducir sin carnet.

Poco después de los hechos, la KTM 390 Duke de Avital volvía a estar aparcada frente a su restaurante y, aunque había sufrido algunos desperfectos como la pérdida del faro delantero, no había un mejor motivo para reunirse el martes por la noche con sus amigos moteros.

Como guinda del pastel, Avital afirmó posteriormente que le gustaría traer a Lewis a la comunidad motera, pero "por el camino correcto. Sólo es un chico joven con héroes terribles".

Ktm 390 Duke Robada 1

De esta historia podemos sacar una valiosa lección y es que, aparte de no darnos nunca por vencidos cuando nos roban una moto, la colaboración con esas publicaciones que nos encontramos en redes sociales y que muchas veces ignoramos puede ser la diferencia entre que su propietario pueda recuperarla.

Pero sobre todo, siempre que nos encontremos en una situación así, nunca, repetimos, nunca debemos tomarnos la justicia por nuestra mano ni ponernos en una situación de peligro innecesaria. Lo de placar a Lewis igual fue una flipada que le salió bien al protagonista de la historia, pero sigue siendo poco recomendable.

          Ecomafie, è record in Campania       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Nel Mezzogiorno i clan continuano spadroneggiare e 484 arresti non sono serviti a frenare gli affari illeciti

Fonte: Francesco Lo Dico da Il Mattino

La buona notizia è che mai come l'anno scorso ci sono stati tanti arresti per crimini contro l'ambiente: 484. Quella cattiva è che il business delle ecomafie non è mai stato così fulgido: 14,1 miliardi di euro. Il Pii del malaffare continua a crescere senza sosta: quest'anno un incremento del 9,4 per cento, trainato per lo più dallo sversamento illegale dei rifiuti, dalla filiera agroalimentare e dal racket animale. Ci vuole ben altro, del resto, per tagliare le unghie alla cupola degli avvelenatori che ha fatto della Campania (prima regione per illeciti ambientali, il 14,6% del totale) il suo fortilizio. E più di ogni altra cosa, servono pene più severe.
IL MINISTRO 
Pene esemplari come quelle invocate dal ministro Costa, che sin dal giorno del suo insediamento si è fatto promotore del Daspo ambientale e di multe draconiane per chi inquina. I numeri che emergono dal Rapporto Ecomafia di Legambiente del resto parlano chiaro. A fronte di 30.692 illeciti ambientali (+18,6%), di 11.027 sequestri (+51,5%), di 39.211 persone denunciate (+36%), il giro d'affari delle cosche continua a crescere, al riparo di un sottile senso di impunità. L'immane lavoro di investigatori e magistrati si traduce a oggi in sanzioni ancora troppo blande per fare davvero paura.
 
E così, al netto dei quasi 500 arresti maturati nella comice della nuova legge 68 sugli ecoreati (che va tagliandata, annuncia Costa), il Mezzogiorno resta ancora terra di frontiera. Dove a dettare legge, più che lo Stato, sono i fuorilegge. Quasi la metà dei reati contro l'ambiente (44%) è avvenuta infatti nelle quattro regioni a tradizionale insediamento mafioso: al primo posto come detto la Campania, dove sono stati accertati 4382 illeciti: in media più di 12 al giorno. A seguire la Sicilia (3.178), la Puglia (3.119), la Calabria (2.809) e il Lazio (2.684).
LEGAMBIENTE 
«I numeri dimostrano i passi da gigante fatti - sottolinea il presidente di Legambiente Stefano Ciafani - ma servono anche altri interventi urgenti». Servono risposte urgenti, ad esempio, per spezzare le reni agli sversatori di rifiuti che si spartiscono la torta criminale per conto dei 331 clan censiti da Legambiente. Nell'ultimo anno e mezzo i soldati delle mafie hanno immesso illegalmente nell'ambiente qualcosa come 4 milioni e mezzo di tonnellate di spazzatura: per trasportarla, occorrerebbero più di 181mila camion disposti lungo una fila di 2500 chilometri. Ma oltre a rovistare nei cassonetti, le mani dei mafiosi affondano sempre più generosamente la presa sulle nostre tavole . Dove spesso finiscono pro dotti illegali, contraffatti, e rischiosi per la salute, che regalano alle cosche proventi per oltre un miliardo di euro. I reati nel settore agroalimentare e contro la biodiversità sono decisamente in crescita.
LE FRODI 
Da quelle in campo ittico alla contraffazione di vini e alcolici, dalle truffe nel settore della ristorazione alla macellazione delle carni, sono state registrate nel 2017 37mila infrazioni, sfociate in 22mila denunce e 2700 sequestri. Tutto ciò che non viene avvelenato, contaminato, stravolto, viene infine razziato e depredato in spregio alla tutela della biodiversità. Il bracconaggio e la pesca di frodo al Sud continuano a crescere senza sosta. In totale sono 7mila le infrazioni registrate (+18% rispetto al 2016) nel settore e più di 6mila le persone denunciate «per aggressioni sulla pelle di lupi, aquile, pettirossi, tonni rossi, pesci spada e non solo».

          Watch Out! Here Come the ‘Woke’ Tech Oligarchs      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Once the rich protected themselves by aligning with Republicans who would protect their property from high taxes and their firms from regulation.

Some still do—notably the Koch brothers—but this breed of right-winger is gradually losing out to more progressive tilted plutocrats. In 2016, according to Open Secrets, three of the four largest billionaire political donors—hedge fund manager James Simon and his wife Marilyn, Michael Bloomberg, and currency speculator George Soros—titled progressive. This reflects a broader social trend.

Overall the GOP continues to slightly outpace Democrats among the ultra rich, but most of the big conservative donors such as Charles and David Koch, Sheldon Adelson, Oracle founder Larry Ellison, Rupert Murdoch, and Irvine Chairman Don Bren are well into their seventies or in their eighties. The trend belongs, clearly, to the progressives. Between 1980 to 2016, support for Democrats from the 0.1 percent has tripled, and donors in the nation’s wealthiest zip codes overall now give more to Democrats than Republicans.

Take Michael Bloomberg, the former Republican of convenience who last week announced he would invest $80 million into Democratic campaigns this fall before teasing, yet again, a possible presidential run of his own. Bloomberg’s usual causes are not those of traditional social democracy—after all this is the guy who proclaimed what New York really needed was more billionaires, and who beta-tested in New York City the businessman-as-better-political-leader pitch he then watched with dismay Donald Trump take all the way to the White House—but issues less threatening to the plutocracy, such as climate change and gun control.

The buyout of mainstream progressivism has changed its nature. Big donor-driven candidates—who still dominate the party’s leadership ranks, even as small-donor powered insurgents like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez test that arrangement, at least in low-turnout elections—are less concerned with the fate of auto or communication workers than they are with issues of environmental regulation, identity, and culture.

Facebook President Sean Parker, former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer, Salesforce.com Chairman Marc Benioff, Mark Zuckerberg, and the world’s richest man, Jeff Bezos, are all relatively young men devoted to the progressive cause—at least those parts of it that don’t threaten their bottom lines.

The Trump Effect

With his horrendous comments and awful actions, Trump has accelerated wokeism among the wealthy and their minions. This oligarchic drift has been building for years, as wealth has shifted from traditional resource and manufacturing industries to software, media, finance, and entertainment. In sharp contrast to energy firms, home-builders, and farmers, the regulatory state does not threaten the bottom lines of these industries, as long as it refrains from breaking up their virtual monopolies.

Indeed, as researcher Greg Ferenstein suggests, the new oligarchs favor an active state that will subsidize worker housing or even a guaranteed minimum income, and keep their businesses off the hook for providing decent benefits to their ever expanding cadre of gig-economy serfs. He points out that the former head of Uber, Travis Kalanick, was a strong supporter of Obamacare and that many top tech executives—including Mark Zuckerberg and Elon Musk—favor a government-provided guaranteed annual wage to help, in part, allay fears about what happens to most of the workforce as their industries and jobs are “disrupted.”

Geography plays a role here as well. With the biggest concentrations of wealth now in the most “progressive” regions—the Bay Area, Los Angeles, New York, Boston, and Seattle—moguls must operate in an environment dominated by fervent anti-Trump social-justice and green advocacy. Many big tech employees—nearly 40 percent in the Bay Area, by some estimates—are noncitizens, with little reason to be concerned about how the wealth in these corners is, or is not, spread across the nation.

So it’s no surprise that woke employees at Microsoft, horrified by the brutalism of Trump’s immigration policies, have decided not to cooperate with ICE. Not to be outdone, Amazon workers compare their company’s cooperation with immigration authorities to IBM’s collaboration with Nazi Germany. Similarly Google workers are refusing to help with drones used to combat terrorists, while Apple is actively working to make it difficult for police to break into phones used in committing crimes, including in the aftermath of the San Bernardino terrorist massacre.

So powerful, and self-referential, are these companies—and their highly compensated workers—that they are increasingly willing to deny even the idea of national interest when that does not suit their political notions. Unlike businesses that worry about competition or mass opinion, these oligarchic companies can demonize half of the country with impunity. At the end of the day, even Trumpians depend on these systems unless they want to look at Chinese alternatives.

The New Controllers

Since Trump’s election, many progressives have pushed the idea that we are on the cusp of a return to traditional authoritarianism, as portrayed in books like George Orwell’s 1984 or Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale. Yet the real model for future tyranny may be more that of Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World, which portrays a society run by a biologically conditioned scientific and technological elite.

In Brave New World, the masters are not hoary Stalinoids or angry right-wing fundamentalists, but gentle, reasoned executives. The Controllers preside over a society where social classes are well-defined, and only those at the top—the Alphas—live in comfort. Families have been abolished except on reservations for misfits, and people widely enjoy access to pleasurable pharmaceuticals and unconstrained, commitment-free sex in the city.

Huxley’s future eerily resembles the one favored by the oligarchs, who are now paying women workers to freeze their eggs as they aim to create an elite Alpha class without children or property, to be serviced by the low-wage Deltas, Gammas, and Epsilons of Huxley’s world—bused in from the suburban fringes.

The Controller’s power, first and foremost, depends on implanting information. In Brave New World contrary ideas are dismissed not as breaking the party line but as simply absurd or even pornographic. Today’s woke oligarchs do much the same by controlling both information and culture. Bloomberg is a prime example but he’s a pauper compared to Bezos, the world’s richest man owning one of the nation’s most influential newspapers.

Tech sofa change in recent years also helped Mark Zuckerberg’s college roommate buy The New Republic, and run it into the ground before selling it. More recently Laurene Powell, the left-leaning widow of the late Steve Jobs (net worth $20 billion), scooped up The Atlantic for a nonprofit that will compete with more traditional competitors who still, sadly, have to make money.

Meanwhile, Google is promoting journalism by robots while also planning to invest $300 million in favored outlets. What could go wrong?

The Agenda

In the emerging regime, here’s what’s not important: personal autonomy and privacy. A controlled and woke society starts with access to people’s thoughts, something critical to the advertising-driven businesses of Google and Facebook and, increasingly, also to Apple and Microsoft. It’s important to remember what Google’s former Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt once told CNBC: “If you have something that you don’t want anyone to know, maybe you shouldn’t be doing it in the first place.”

The digital revolution, which had so much promise for democratizing information, appears to be hyper-concentrating media both geographically, on the coasts, and through pipelines controlled overwhelmingly by firms like Facebook, so that a change in policy there can undermine even established media, and Google, which controls over a third of all on-line advertising and a remarkable 90 percent of global search. As The Guardian recently put it: “If ExxonMobil attempted to insert itself into every element of our lives like this, there might be a concerted grassroots movement to curb its influence.”

These patterns are reinforced by students shaped by our ideologically homogeneous education system. The censorious instinct now intrinsic to universities, particularly the elite ones, shapes the thoughts of the highly educated workers critical to these companies. Controllers like those at Facebook increasingly seek to “curate” views, largely conservative, they don’t like, according to former employees. Often this censorship is being carried out under guidance developed by largely progressive groups like the Southern Poverty Law Center, which has too often labeled anyone outside its ideological “safe space” as racist bigots. Over 70 percent of Americans, notes a recent Pew study, believe social media platforms “censor political views.”

Ultimately the oligarchs, reacting to their woke workers and constituency, seek a control over basic behavior in ways even the snoop-crazy Chinese would admire. Facebook already admits to having patented technology that would allow them to snoop on their users, although they deny using it. Netflix, the oligarchical company that by some estimates is now worth more than any of the movie studios, recently imposed controls over what people do on sets of movies they finance. That includes rules that ban asking for phone numbers of co-workers or even looking at people for more than five seconds, an innovation even more intrusive than those of Huxley’s Controllers.

Hypocritical Oaths

Stanley Bing’s recently released Immortal Life gives a riveting version of a near-future society shaped by our tech oligarchs. In his not-so-distant future, government has largely been replaced by a cabal of superannuated tech moguls—effectively Global Controllers—who shape societal views, implant devices in human brains, and dominate every aspect of the economy. Democracy hasn’t just been constrained; it’s been excised.

Right now the rising power of the Controllers has been obscured by the Trumpian counterrevolution, a peasant rebellion supported by a less than charming alliance of old economy moguls, angry white males, and more than few xenophobic racists. But over the long term, history is bending toward the woke oligarchy—particularly as the old generation conveniently dies off.

If these well-heeled progressives have a vulnerability, it’s their extreme hypocrisy. In California, the epicenter of the resistance and elite wokefulness, Silicon Valley oligarchs and their shrieky Hollywood counterparts are fervent in their embrace of progressive values. But, as a new report from Chapman University shows, the prevailing oligarch-friendly California economic agenda—hostile to suburbs, fossil-fuel energy, and manufacturing—has proven unequal and particularly damaging to minorities.

Not without reason has the maverick environmentalist Mike Shellenberger called California “the most racist” state in the union. Far from Malibu and swanky haunts of the cultural elites, the bulk of Los Angeles suffers among the highest poverty rates of any metropolitan areas. Cost-adjusted wages for middle-class workers, Latinos, and African Americans in Silicon Valley have actually dropped during the recent economic boom there.

Perhaps there’s no better illustration of hypocrisy than the Disney company. The once conservative bastion-turned-promoter of woke values has been led by Robert Iger, a fantastically well-compensated self-defined “progressive,” who has made much of denouncing President Trump’s immigration policy as “cruel and misguided ” and taking standard progressive positions on guns and the Paris accords. Yet, as Bernie Sanders has pointed out recently, Disney workers are generally poorly paid, many on the verge of poverty. Even middle-class workers have been given the shiv: The company infamously replaced its IT workers with outside contractors shipped in from India.

Against the Oligarchs

This unprecedented agglomeration of wealth and power needs to be opposed both by conservatives and traditional progressives. It won’t be easy. In the presidential run, The Washington Post took hard aim at Bernie Sanders before turning, albeit less successfully, against Trump. More recently Amazon and its minions forced Seattle’s progressives to back down from a plan to make the company pay more taxes. Majority Leader Charles Schumer opposes higher capital-gains rates, warming the cockles of venture capitalists and the new economic royalists, some of whom are his contributors.

Even on green issues, the famously pious oligarchs demonstrate remarkable levels of hypocrisy. These firms have bought enough allowances and built solar or wind facilities to claim “carbon neutrality.” But such offsets, as the new Chapman report reveals, mostly shuffle greenhouse gases around and don’t actually reduce global emissions. Apple keeps its California carbon footprint down by making all its products abroad, mostly in China—which ends up spewing more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere than if they built them here.

Ultimately the only way to stop the new Controllers and challenge their hypocrisy will be to meet them head on. Companies like Google need to be broken up, as many on both right and left agree. This position has even been adopted by the generally liberal Boston Globe which warned that, “Never ever in the history of the world has a single company had so much control over what people know and think.”

But it’s not just Google—which spends more on lobbying than any other private company—or Amazon, which has quadrupled its government spending since 2014. This relatively new focus on inside Washington influence-peddling, combined with their oversized influence on critical technologies, our media, and overall economic system makes these firms a threat to the pluralism essential to democracy, unlike any we have seen in the last century. Their vision presages a society where few work and a handful control the nation’s riches. To avoid a rebellion, the “redundant” are supposed to be paid off with some sort of government allowance.

Americans need to oppose this evolution and fight for the flourishing of a grassroots and more dispersed economy now, before the oligarchs brave new world is fully and finally here.

Grey!! Fantastic write-up, you nailed it! Mark Twain quote of the day for July 11 A Circumstance that will coerce one man will have no effect upon a man of a different temperament. If Circumstance had thrown the bank-note in Caesar's way, his temperament would not have made him start for the Amazon. His temperament would have compelled him to do something with the money, but not that. It might have made him advertise the note--and WAIT. We can't tell. Also, it might have made him go to New York and buy into the Government, with results that would leave Tweed nothing to learn when it came his turn. Very well, Circumstance furnished the capital, and my temperament told me what to do with it. Sometimes a temperament is an ass. When that is the case the owner of it is an ass, too, and is going to remain one. Training, experience, association, can temporarily so polish him, improve him, exalt him that people will think he is a mule, but they will be mistaken. Artificially he IS a mule, for the time being, but at bottom he is an ass yet, and will remain one. By temperament I was the kind of person that DOES things. Does them, and reflects afterward. So I started for the Amazon without reflecting and without asking any questions. That was more than fifty years ago. In all that time my temperament has not changed, by even a shade. I have been punished many and many a time, and bitterly, for doing things and reflecting afterward, but these tortures have been of no value to me; I still do the thing commanded by Circumstance and Temperament, and reflect afterward. Always violently. When I am reflecting, on those occasions, even deaf persons can hear me think. I went by the way of Cincinnati, and down the Ohio and Mississippi. My idea was to take ship, at New Orleans, for Para. In New Orleans I inquired, and found there was no ship leaving for Para. Also, that there never had BEEN one leaving for Para. I reflected. A policeman came and asked me what I was doing, and I told him. He made me move on, and said if he caught me reflecting in the public street again he would run me in. Cheers, Ante

          On Controller Design for Systems on Manifolds in Euclidean Space. (arXiv:1807.03475v1 [math.OC])      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Authors: Dong Eui Chang

A new method is developed to design controllers in Euclidean space for systems defined on manifolds. The idea is to embed the state-space manifold $M$ of a given control system into some Euclidean space $\mathbb R^n$, extend the system from $M$ to the ambient space $\mathbb R^n$, and modify it outside $M$ to add transversal stability to $M$ in the final dynamics in $\mathbb R^n$. Controllers are designed for the final system in the ambient space $\mathbb R^n$. Then, their restriction to $M$ produces controllers for the original system on $M$. This method has the merit that only one single global Cartesian coordinate system in the ambient space $\mathbb R^n$ is used for controller synthesis, and any controller design method in $\mathbb R^n$, such as the linearization method, can be globally applied for the controller synthesis. The proposed method is successfully applied to the tracking problem for the following two benchmark systems: the fully actuated rigid body system and the quadcopter drone system.


          Un hacker intenta vender documentos militares estadounidenses en la dark web por sólo 150 dólares      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Dark Web

Ya sabemos que en la dark web podemos encontrarnos material muy sorprendente y, en muchos casos, ilegal. Esto le ocurrió a Andrei Barysevich, director de la compañía Recorded Future (especializada en inteligencia de amenazas en tiempo real).

Andrei asegura que se encontró un manual del drone MQ-9 Reaper, un vehículo aéreo no tripulado que es utilizado por militares estadounidenses. Lo que más le llamó la atención es que un hacker intentaba venderlo por tan sólo 150 dólares.

Este drone fue creado por General Atomics Aeronautical Systems y en febrero de 2001 hizo su primer vuelo. Está equipado con un motor turbohélice, con el que puede alcanzar una gran velocidad. Está considerado como el "el drone más letal".

Un adversario podría conocer sus capacidades técnicas y debilidades

Al parecer, este hacker consiguió hacerse con el manual tras haberlo robado a un capitán de la Fuerza Aérea. Lo hizo explotando una vulnerabilidad de los routers Netgear, utilizando una contraseña por defecto.

"Este tipo de documentos normalmente consiguen robarlos hackers expertos de otras naciones. No los venderían en la dark web y menos por 150 dólares", asegura Andrei. A pesar del bajo precio, sorprende que no haya conseguido venderlo:

"Llevo investigando la dark web desde hace 15 años y es la primera vez que me encuentro documentos de esta naturaleza".

Aunque este documento no está considerado como clasificado, los investigadores de Recorded Future consideran que es "altamente sensible" y "podría darle a un adversario la habilidad de evaluar las capacidades técnicas y las debilidades de una de las aeronaves más avanzadas tecnológicamente".

Por su parte, Netgear asegura que lanzaron una actualización en 2016 "que arregla este problema". Esta noticia nos vuelve a recordar que la seguridad de la red de nuestra casa es nuestra responsabilidad, y debemos extremar las precauciones si poseemos algún tipo de información sensible.

  • A hacker who got ahold of sensitive US military documents tried to selling them on a dark-web forum, only to find no one wanted to buy them.
  • The sensitive information the hacker attempted to sell included a maintenance manual for the MQ-9A Reaper drone, a list of airmen assigned to a Reaper drone unit, manuals on how to suppress improvised explosive devices, and an M1 Abrams tank manual.
  • The hacker also tapped into live footage of surveillance cameras at the US-Mexico border and NASA bases, and an MQ-1 Predator flying over the Gulf of Mexico.
  • The hacker, who is believed to reside in a poverty-stricken country in South America, said his internet connection was slow and that because his bandwidth was limited, he did not download all the files prior to finding a willing buyer.
  • Undercover analysts alerted US officials and the vulnerable computers were taken offline, which inadvertently cut off the hacker's access to the files.
  • Analysts say they have a "good level of confidence" about the hacker's identity.

A hacker who got ahold of sensitive US military documents tried to sell them on a dark-web forum — only to find there were no buyers. The hacker was forced to lower his price to $150.

After a team of undercover analysts from Recorded Future's Insikt Group embedded themselves with users from the dark-web forum, they came across the hacker who exploited a simple vulnerability on Netgear-brand routers.

Danke Herr Kamps für diesen klasse Beitrag. Ich habe ihn mit grossem Interesse gelesen. Ich habe selbst meine erste 3D Brille vor über 15 Jahren gekauft. Vom früher sehr bekannten Grafikkartenhersteller ELSA aus Deutschland. Man konnte da schon langsam erahnen, wo die Reise hingehen soll. Den letzten Eindruck den ich bekommen durfte war bei meinem Bruder. Er nutzt ebenso ein Samsung Galaxy und ein passendes Headset. Die 360 Grad Videos, die mittlerweile bei youtube existieren, sind der reine Wahnsinn. Egal ob es Achterbahn-Fahrten oder Horrorvideos sind, der Eindruck ist einfach genial. Lustig ist es natürlich für die Anwesenden, die den Brillenträger auf dem Sofa herumwackeln sehen. Faszinierend sind auch die ersten Anwedungen in der Medizin oder virtuelle Welten bei realen Achterbahnfahrten, um das Gefühl extrem real erscheinen lassen. Beim Drone Racing werden mittlerweile auch sehr gute Brillen verwendet. Und das gilt mittlerweile als Sportart. Meiner Meinung nach wird aber ein richtiger Boom durch die Spieleindustrie ausgelöst werden. Welche Art Spiel, ob ein Ego-Shooter, Racing Game oder anderes Genre, ist die Frage. Ich würde mir Formel 1 wünschen. Auf einer real gefilmten Bahn, rechts von mir Vettel, zu meiner linken Schuhmacher und fahr mit Topspeed durch das Ziel. MfG Karsten

film dei Muse

Muse Drones World Tour al cinema per due giorni a luglio. Il film concerto Muse Drones World Tour al cinema ci sarà il 12 e il 13 luglio in una selezione di sale UCI dislocate in tutta la penisola.

Arriva nelle multisala del circuito UCI Cinemas il film concerto diretto da Tom Kirk e Jan Willem Schram che racconta il tour mondiale del gruppo dei Muse, sui palchi più importanti d'Europa e del resto del mondo.

L'appuntamento è per il 12 e il 13 luglio 2018 alle 21:00 nelle multisala del Circuito UCI Cinemas. Il film è distribuito da Nexo Digital ed è stato registrato durante diverse date del tour dei Muse che nel 2016 ha toccato diversi Paesi del globo.

Nel film ci saranno alcuni dei più grandi successi dei Muse, hit degli ultimi anni in tutto il mondo. Non mancheranno le canzoni Psycho, Madness, Uprising, Plug in Baby, Supermassive Black Hole e Knights of Cydonia ma ci saranno anche molti altri pezzi estratti dai dischi rilasciati nel corso della carriera dei Muse.

Gli effetti speciali arricchiscono il live unitamente alle immagini backstage che impreziosiscono il racconto degli spettacoli dei Muse.

Matt Bellamy, frontman dei Muse, ha commentato:

"La simbiosi tra umanità e tecnologia è una cosa a cui sono sempre stato interessato. I droni sembrano essere una metafora moderna estremamente forte... Ma vogliamo lasciare che sia il pubblico stesso a chiedersi quale sia il ruolo della tecnologia nelle nostre vite e se sia una cosa buona o cattiva".

Protagonisti del film-concerto sarà la band stessa non solo sul palco ma anche nel racconto del concetto creativo alla base della tournée che ha conquistato tutto il mondo. La parola sarà quella degli stessi musicisti che racconteranno ai fan la preparazione degli spettacoli e i punti salienti dello show con i droni che volano tra il pubblico delle diverse tappe per riprese magiche tra effetti di luci e laser.

          Menace détectée: un élan femelle attaque un drone qu’elle juge trop intrusif (vidéo)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Après de longues années de recherches, un photographe de la région de Kaliningrad, à l’ouest de la Russie, a réalisé son rêve professionnel et a réussi à réaliser, à l’aide d’un drone, des cadres d’un élan femelle. Pourtant, le cervidé a clairement fait savoir que le drone le dérangeait dans son intimité.
          Second Rate      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
It is no longer possible to miss the many areas in which the United States has fallen behind or declined to become second rate. In many cases progress is being made only in select regions, while the rest of the nation declines or is stagnant as other countries improve.

* Health Care and Substance Abuse.

We pay far too much for weak results that don't cover everyone. Our health care system for the poor is worse than that of many third world countries. Our mental health care is poor. We have high rates of infant and maternal mortality compared to our peers. We have an anti-vax subculture that threatens our nation's safety. We have very high rates of STDs in African-American communities and to a lesser extent other minority communities. We are dismantling our ability to respond to epidemic disease outbreaks. Much of the rural U.S. is seeing declining life expectancies. Access to abortion is declining.

The U.S. is doing a particularly poor job  at adapting culturally and in terms of nutrition and health care and lifestyle to more sedentary work and rapidly changing diets, resulting in an obesity epidemic.

We do a miserable job of managing opioid addiction and abuse. We do a miserable job of addressing psychoactive drugs for the most part. Our alcohol regulation for young adults is hypocritical and ineffectual.

Exceptions: Obamacare made significant strides in reducing the number of uninsured Americans in states that fully adopted it, but is being actively degraded and resisted.

The U.S. does better in inventing new treatments, although often not approving them very quickly. 

We are making progress in reducing teen pregnancy with targeted programs making long term contraception available but it is painfully slow and uneven. 

The U.S. has made great progress in reducing tobacco use. The U.S. is making good progress in marijuana regulation in many states.

* Education and Higher Education

We provide poor curriculums for the non-college bound, and too many career opportunities now require excessive educational credentials. The economic prospects for primary and secondary teachers has declined causing this sector to attract less top talent.

We spend lots of time and effort and money on foreign language instruction that produces very few fluent foreign language speakers due to poor instruction methods and poor foreign language instruction timing. Foreign language instruction that works needs to start younger and include significant periods (multiple weeks at a time or more) of language immersion instruction.

We have a significant number of very bad schools, especially in predominantly minority inner city schools. We have a significant minority of students in religious schools and home schooling who are taught grossly inaccurate material in science and social studies by parents and teachers who are themselves unqualified and ignorant.

Too many academically talented Americans aren't going to college because they can't afford to do so. This is mostly a function of financing higher education poorly. Student loan debt has been a major new problem for the current generation of higher education system graduates. Too many students are admitted to programs that they are likely to fail in and then burdened with heavy student loan debt nonetheless. The cost of higher education has soared with much of the increase attributable to rising administrative costs.

We have done almost nothing to increase the supply of new medical degree recipients despite surging demand for them. In law, we have done the opposite and opened many new law schools with very low bar passage rates despite a significant increase in the number of lawyers being produced each year.

Exceptions: The quality of elite U.S. higher educational institutions is still first rate and attracted the best and brightest from around the world until recent immigration policies have discouraged foreign students from coming to the U.S. 

Many countries with superior primary and secondary educational systems in developed countries continue to have less rigorous and less effective higher educational instruction and research in many areas relative to selective U.S. colleges and universities.

* Public Safety, Criminal Justice and Human Rights

Our murder rate is too high. Our violent crime rates are too high. Our gun related accidental death rate is too high. Our gun related suicide rate is too high. Much of this is related to non-existent or ineffectual gun control measures.

Our incarceration rate is far too high. We still overuse the death penalty in an unfair manner. We impose far too many life without possibility of parole sentences and equivalent to life in prison sentences. Our sex offender registration programs are destructive overkill. We try to many juveniles as adults. We impose to many sentences, especially in recidivist cases, that are grossly disproportionate to the offense. Race unduly affects criminal justice outcomes. We greatly overuse solitary confinement. We greatly overuse pre-trial incarceration. We incarcerate too many people for what amounts to an inability to pay debts. We use the criminal justice system to deal with what are fundamentally mental health problems. Our jails and prisons are controlled by gangs rather than prison officials.

Civil remedies for human rights violations like improper use of force by law enforcement are gradually growing harder to secure. Our immigration policy is a nightmare of human rights violations. Our President encourages human rights violations and mandates them in some cases.

Exceptions: Crime rates in the U.S. have declined dramatically since the mid-1990s even though they are still high by international standards.

* Democracy and Corruption

Our electoral system has stunningly low voter turnout. Voter suppression tools like restrictive voter registration laws, voter-ID laws and felon disenfranchisement laws unfairly prevent people from voting. Our single member district plurality election system inappropriately stifles third-party voices, suppressed voter turnout and suffers from pervasive gerrymandering (including the constitutionally enshrined electoral college and U.S. Senate) that has resulted in a huge disconnect between voter preferences and electoral outcomes. Incumbency provides disproportionately and unreasonably strong electoral advantages. Our political parties and voters both seem incapable of screening out grossly unqualified and extremist candidates. Our vote tallying mechanisms are vulnerable to hacking. Our long ballots and declining availability and quality of coverage of politics in the news media cause many electoral decisions to be made by ill informed voters. A huge proportion of our population (ca. 30%) ignores reliable sources of information and science in favor of demonstrably false propaganda and religious doctrine. Our campaign finance laws to not achieve their intended objectives. Money rich special interests routinely overpower majority preferences. Judicial elections do a poor job of filling the bench with the best possible judges and encourages corruption.

The dramatic decline in unions and civil society groups involving in person participation (like service clubs and churches) has undermined the civic capacity of the United States.

Corruption is on the rise, in the form of nepotism, executive branch officials who actively undermine their agencies' missions, political appointees who are grossly unqualified, personal financial interests and campaign contributions that unduly impact political decisions, and political disregard for the constitution, the rule of law, political norms and human rights. Court decisions have made it harder to prosecute corrupt officials. Corrupt officials are being pardoned. Civl forfeiture programs with bad incentives have encouraged corruption.

Exceptions: Some states have adopted same day voter registration, have reduced felon disenfranchisement, and have made wider use of mail in ballots to increase turnout. 

Maine has adopted rank choice voting.

Some states are less corrupt than others.

* Transportation, Energy, Environment, Urban Planning and Housing.

The U.S. underfunds roads and bridges leading to decaying infrastructure due in significant part to declining inflation adjusted gas tax revenues.

The U.S. has too strong incentive (including tax incentives) to buy fuel inefficient vehicles and too weak incentives to build less polluting and more fuel efficient (or electric vehicles).

The U.S. has an inferior passenger rail system that is slow and economically a failure. Passenger rail accidents in the U.S. seem to be more common. The U.S. has an anemic passenger bus system that is largely restricted to the disabled and very poor. The U.S. lags considerably in having walkable and bicycle friendly cities. 

The U.S. has unnecessary widespread homelessness and deep poverty. The U.S. has too much urban sprawl and unaffordable housing, in significant part due to excessive restrictions on housing density and prohibitions of small or inexpensive housing methods. The U.S. is lagging in rapid and efficient pre-manufactured component housing in its construction industry, which is lagging in innovations.

The productive individuals and firms in the U.S. economy leave economically declining areas (mostly rural and Rust Belt communities) rapidly, leaving less mobile individuals behind in deteriorating circumstances in these areas.

The U.S. was once a global leader in nuclear power production. Our industry has stagnated relative to the nuclear power industry in other parts of the world, and we have failed to adopt new technologies or build more plants. 

The U.S. is rapidly scaling back environmental regulations and is the only country in the world not fighting climate change through the Paris Accords, and waging war on solar power. Fracking has caused many environmental harms which are not sufficiently regulated and safety regulation for oil and gas workers has seriously slipped.

The U.S. lags in energy technologies including tidal energy, energy conservation, and co-generation. The U.S. uses heating oil excessively when it is a less than optimal heating fuel.

The arid western United States allocates a very large share of its water supply to very inefficient and marginally economically productive agricultural water users. Not infrequently, scarce water supplies are used to grow water hungry crops in inappropriate places for such crops relative to other climate areas.

Security theater has dramatically undermined the effective speed and convenience of commercial passenger air travel, while only modestly increasing safety.

Exceptions: The U.S. has greatly reduced the use of coal to generate electricity in recent years, mostly in favor of cleaner natural gas, wind power and solar power. 

The U.S. is making progress in developing mass produced electric cars and trucks, and in advancing critical battery and energy storage technologies. 

The U.S. is making progress in developing self-driving vehicles. There has been modest progress in developing intracity passenger rail systems. 

The U.S. interstate highway system is still largely unmatched globally and make automotive travel between cities fast (especially with 75 mile per hour speed limits in many cases) and quite safe. 

Drunk driving deaths are down considerably.

* Manufacturing, Taxation, Trade, Unions and Intellectual Property

While automation has increased the productivity per person of manufacturing workers (as well as the skill levels of these jobs), offshoring of manufacturing (particularly to China and to a lesser extent Mexico) in pursuit of lower wages and less labor and environmental regulation, leaving the U.S. with a hollow manufacturing sector that is also less innovative because it doesn't deal up close on a daily basis, en mass with the problems associated with manufacturing goods.


Via Wikipedia. In the period of rapid Union membership growth from 1930 to 1955 almost all union members were in the private sector: "At the apex of union density in the 1940s, only about 9.8% of public employees were represented by unions, while 33.9% of private, non-agricultural workers had such representation." The public sector also made up a smaller share of the work force in the 1940s than it does today.

The decline of the U.S. manufacturing sector which used to be one of the bastions of the union movement and its vulnerability to further offshoring, has decimated the U.S. private sector union movement. The percentage of U.S. private sector employees who are in labor unions (6.5% as of 2017) is now as low as it was in the 1930s (and even a century ago in 1918), before most U.S. labor laws protecting the right to unionize were enacted (after almost continuous decline since 1954), and unionization rates are generally significantly lower in "red states" largely as a result of anti-union state policies. Only one state out of the 25 states with the lowest unionization rate (New Mexico) is not a "right to work" state. Only four of the top 25 states plus D.C. in unionization rates are "right to work states" (Kentucky, West Virginia, Nevada and Michigan). Private sector unionization rates declined 61% from 1983 to 2017 and has declined by 81% from the peak in the 1940s to 2017. Public sector unions are much more healthy with 34.4% of wage and salary workers in the public sector in a union, a number that has been increasing, by 350% since the 1940s and have grown significantly even since 1983. And, there was a roughly 8 fold growth in union membership percentages from 1897 to 1918.

Obvious places to expand U.S. manufacturing, like intact component modules to be shipped to construction sites, have not taken off.

The decline of manufacturing has not affected all developed countries. Many high wage developed countries with strong environmental laws and strong labor laws still have vibrant manufacturing economies.

But, tariffs, quotas, trade wars and harsh immigration policies that the current administration has utilized to counteract offshoring have largely made the situation worse and not better, for example, encouraging notable parts of the already scarce U.S. manufacturing base to move abroad.

Unduly strong intellectual property laws have crossed a threshold where they have become a barrier to a more productive economy instead of encouraging it. International tax rules, meanwhile, have made it far too easy to legally reduce or indefinitely defer taxable income in industries with significant intellectual property contributions.

Bad sales tax rules have accelerated the retail apocalypse in which brick and mortar stores are in decline due to competition from online retailers.

Tax breaks on physical capital unaccompanied by tax breaks for human capital have encouraged job killing automation at the margin where technology based solutions wouldn't have been adopted but for tax incentives in that U.S. tax code.

Exception: The U.S. still leads in producing entertainment content and patents, although this productivity is confined to a few highly productive regions like California and New York.

The U.S. still has lots of export driving production in the agricultural and mining industries, and is less oil import dependent than it was in the past.

Many "foreign" automobile companies have built factories in the United States.

The U.S. has a few sectors like aircraft, where it is still a manufacturing leader, again, in geographically concentrated regions, mostly in blue states.

Overall, in the U.S. consumer goods are cheap in inflation adjusted and growth adjusted terms, although certain kinds of services are now much more expensive.

* The Military

The U.S. has record low numbers of front line ground troops, limiting its capacity for war fighting despite immense military spending. This is particularly a concern when high technology military systems that are expensive, take time to produce in large numbers and take a great amount of training to use, reduce the usefulness of rapid expansion of its ranks through a military draft.

The U.S. spends far too much on the military relative to its needs, or what it gets for its money, particularly with regard to spending on major weapons systems like surface combatants, manned warplanes, guided munitions, tanks and slug throwing artillery. The U.S. military's high cost structure greatly impairs its ability to respect effectively and efficiently to asymmetric threats like the 17 year old war in Afghanistan. Military procurement is pervasively corrupt.

The U.S. military has been slow to adjust its force mix to reflect the dramatically increased accuracy of precision munitions, drone and satellite based reconnaissance systems, and automation that are now available.

The U.S. invests heavily in a blue sea surface combatant and nuclear attack submarine force that is not justified by any current threat and in the case of the surface warship fleet is vulnerable to a variety of emerging threats, when other resources would better address the threats these forces are designed to address. 

The U.S. Navy has also unreasonably resisted exchanging many fighter aircraft on aircraft carriers with equally capable or more capable armed drone aircraft fulfilling many of the same roles; the U.S. Air Force has likewise unreasonably resisted replacing fighter aircraft with equally capable or more capable armed drone aircraft, despite the successful development of prototypes for both roles.

The U.S. invests heavily in expensive supersonic stealth fighters while failing to procure less expensive but adequate air power in volume for lower threat missions.

The U.S. has failed to take diplomatic action to reduce conventional weapons threats driving so much of its expenditures in a handful of hot spots like East Asia and the Persian Gulf.

The U.S. has underinvested its ample resources in asymmetric warfare resources, in nation building, in human capital investments like language training, in littoral combat capabilities, in close air support for ground troops, in fixed wing troop transportation options, and in fire support for amphibious and coastal troops. The U.S. military has been slow to adopt clearly superior innovations in high volume, low cost systems like its small arms.

The U.S. strategic arsenal of nuclear weapons is run by units with a record of horrible internal discipline and grossly outdated technologies that have never been upgraded.

The increasing cultural divide between professional volunteer soldiers in the U.S. military and the general public is concerning.

Exceptions: While the U.S. pays an immense amount for the military it has, its most advanced systems in many areas are world class or competitive with world class system. For example, the military has made great strides in development active defense technologies against all manner of incoming ordinance and missiles.

Its troops are generally very well trained and are reliably subject to civilian authority.

          Un hacker a fost prins când încerca să vândă documente furate din computerele unei baze militare americane (Internet)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Obişnuim să vedem în filme hackeri care sparg sisteme informatice ale guvernului şi armatei americane, însă în realitate aceste lucruri se întâmplă foarte rar, sau sunt oprite înainte ca cineva să poată accesa informaţii sensibile. Se pare însă că de data aceasta un hacker descris ca având „abilităţi moderate” a reuşit să pătrundă în sistemul unei baze militare, de unde a descărcat un manual pentru dronele de luptă ale Statelor Unite, cât şi diverse alte documente referitoare la tacticile de război ale armatei americane. Acesta a fost prins abia după ce a scos la vânzare o parte dintre documente.

Se pare că hacker-ul, care între timp a fost prins, însă identitatea sa nu a fost dezvăluită, a reuşit să acceseze reţeaua internă a bazei militare folosind o vulnerabilitate cunoscută încă din 2016 a unui router produs de Netgear. Astfel, acesta s-a putut conecta folosind această breşă direct la computerul capitanului unităţii, de unde a putut descărca fişierele printre care se regăseau manualul dronei MQ-9 Reaper, cea pe care americanii o folosesc de mai multă vreme în misiuni, cât şi mai multe manuale de antrenament, de supravieţuire şi tactici ale platonului de tanchişti.

Acţiunile acestui hacker pun la îndoială însă sistemele de securitate ale bazelor militare ale Statelor Unite. Recorded Future, organizaţia de securitate care a documentat acest eveniment spune că accesul neautorizat ar fi trebuit să fie depistat mai repede, acesta putând accesa sistemele bazei militare pentru mai bine de o săptămână. De asemenea, faptul că acesta nu este un hacker foarte competent ridică o altă problemă: cât de grave ar putea fi acţiunile unui grup organizat?

Hacker-ul a fost prins abia când după ce a încercat să pună la vânzare manualul dronei pentru o sumă între 150 şi 200 de dolari pe „dark web”, partea „întunecată” a internetului, unde majoritatea infractorilor cibernetici îşi vând produsele sau serviciile. În trecut aici au fost prinşi traficanţi de droguri, asasini şi chiar amatori de pornografie infantilă.

          Thailanda - Întoarcere dificilă spre normalitate pentru cei 13 tineri salvaţi din peştera inundată      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Cei 12 copii şi antrenorul lor de fotbal care au fost salvaţi într-un mod aproape miraculos dintr-o peşteră inundată din nordul Thailandei vor trebui să treacă peste această traumă, însă drumul lor spre normalitate va fi lung şi dificil, afirmă jurnaliştii de la AFP. Copiii au fost separaţi de familiile lor timp de două săptămâni, privaţi de lumină şi hrană, iar timp de nouă zile nu au ştiut dacă vor fi găsiţi vreodată. Mediul în care au rezistat atât de mult timp era la rândul lui generator de angoase: o apă tulbure, care i-a urmărit în tuneluri şi care înconjura micul promontoriu pe care s-au refugiat, unde au fost descoperiţi aproape miraculos de doi scafandri britanici. Pentru moment, autorităţile thailandeze afirmă că tinerii "au cu toţii o sănătate mintală bună", protejaţi de "coconul" reprezentat de spitalul în care au fost internaţi şi în care vor rămâne cel puţin o săptămână. Coşmare, claustrofobie, tristeţe, atacuri de panică... După o experienţă traumatizantă de această amploare, experţii afirmă că în lunile care vor urma astfel de simptome vor fi cât se poate de obişnuite. "După o astfel de încercare, să te afli în circumstanţe similare, să fii în întuneric, într-o cameră cu uşa închisă, să fii nevoit să faci un test la tomograf sau chiar să înoţi, poate să retrezească trauma", afirmă Jennifer Wild de la Centrul de cercetări asupra anxietăţii şi traumelor din Oxford, vorbind pentru Science Media Centre despre drama trăită de aceşti copii. În stare de şoc "Dacă după o lună unii dintre ei vor rămâne încă în stare de şoc, ei vor fi trebui să fie atent monitorizaţi din punct de vedere medical", a declarat Yongyud Wongpriromsarn, expert în sănătate mintală din cadrul Ministerului Sănătăţii din Thailanda. Într-adevăr, dincolo de pragul de o lună, în timpul căreia oamenii sunt bântuiţi de experienţa negativă prin care au trecut, apare riscul de stres posttraumantic. "Dacă vor putea să considere acea încercare drept o aventură ieşită din comun şi să nu se gândească la felurile în care ar fi putut să îşi piardă viaţa, atunci vor putea mai degrabă să îşi revină foarte bine din punct de vedere emoţional", a explicat Jennifer Wild. "Este important ca băieţii să se concentreze mai degrabă pe faptul că au reuşit să iasă la suprafaţă decât pe lucrurile care ar fi putut să li se întâmple", a adăugat aceeaşi specialistă. Prezenţă liniştitoare Prezenţa alături de copii a tânărului antrenor de 25 de ani, care a petrecut mai multe sejururi în mănăstiri budiste, a reprezentat un factor liniştitor, au subliniat autorităţile locale. "Erau cu toţii împreună, ca o echipă, se ajutau între ei. Antrenorul lor a gestionat foarte bine situaţia", a declarat miercuri Thongchai Lertwilairatanapong, expert în cadrul Ministerului Sănătăţii din Thailanda, într-o conferinţă de presă organizată la spitalul din Chiang Rai, unde au fost internaţi cei 13 tineri. Ei trebuie să rămână în spital timp de o săptămână, mai întâi în carantină, fără să poată fi îmbrăţişaţi de părinţii lor timp de câteva zile. Într-o primă etapă, părinţii pot să îi vadă şi să le vorbească printr-un geam. La şcoala din Mae Sai, unde învăţă majoritatea copiilor salvaţi din peşteră, colegii aşteaptă cu nerăbdare revenirea lor. "Să îi ajuţi pe cei din cadrul grupului, să te gândeşti la viitorul lor, să revii la şcoală şi în comunitate sunt progrese fundamentale", afirmă Boonruang Triruangworawat, directorul departamentului de sănătate mintală din cadrul Ministerului Sănătăţii thailandez. Potrivit părerii sale, copiii vor beneficia de o monitorizare psihologică timp de mai multe luni. Evitarea mass-media Echipajele de salvare au criticat folosirea dronelor de anumite companii mass-media locale în timpul operaţiunii, întrucât unele dintre drone au stânjenit circulaţia elicopterelor care îi evacuau pe copiii scoşi din peşteră. Experţii avertizează şi în privinţa riscului generat de expunerea mediatică, recomandând copiilor să evite orice şedinţă foto şi orice interviu, deoarece trebuie să fie protejaţi de mass-media. "Copiii nu ar trebui să dea interviuri sau să fie solicitaţi pentru fotografii pentru o anumită perioadă", a recomandat Andrea Danese, psihiatru şi cercetător specializat în ştiinţa stresului la King&#39;s College of London, citat de Science Media Centre.

UN Expects More Involvement From China’s Base in Djibouti: Representative
By Li Ruohan in Djibouti
Global Times
2018/7/10 23:08:40

The UN representative in Djibouti has expressed confidence that the Chinese Navy's logistics base in Djibouti could further engage with regional humanitarian efforts, with Chinese experts saying the country's advanced weapons, such as Rainbow drones, could participate in such missions.

"It's important for all countries to be prepared in case of disasters, and to ensure that all resources and assets available are mobilized to respond to such disasters in case of need," Barbara Manzi, UN Resident Coordinator of Djibouti, told the Global Times.

The UN is looking forward to further engage with China's base in Djibouti to find ways, as responsible members of the international community, to better support the Government to serve such goals, Manzi said.

Djibouti is an island of peace, surround by countries which experience many difficulties, and its geographic location makes it an ideal place to support regional humanitarian efforts and cooperation, Manzi said.

Though a small country, Djibouti holds a strategically important location facing the Gulf of Aden. The country is home to China's first overseas naval logistics base, which began construction in 2016 and formally opened in August 2017 with a flag raising ceremony in Djibouti at the Horn of Africa.

On July 2, over 100 soldiers in the base held a skill competition in the heat of 43 C conditions. The competition, which has lasted nearly a month, has 56 events that include marksmanship and examinations on vehicle explosives, news site people.cn reported. 

Soldiers trained at the base could get more involved in disaster relief missions and regional efforts to fight against terrorists and pirates, Song Zhongping, a military expert and TV commentator, told the Global Times.

Joint drills with African troops is another option, in which the Chinese Navy bring their advanced weapons, such as light weapons, armed vehicles and China's home-made Rainbow drones, according to Song.

With strong capability in detecting targets, the Rainbow drones could also accomplish real-time attack missions with high accuracy, which makes it a useful weapon in anti-terrorist activities, said Song.

Medical staffers in the base could also join such missions more frequently and help train local personnel, Song added.

The base also provides medical treatment for Chinese business persons in case of emergency, according to staffers from a nearby Chinese company reached by the Global Times. 

Sitting on the Bad el-Mandeb Strait, a gateway to one of the world's busiest shipping routes, Djibouti is also home to the largest US permanent military base in Africa and one of the largest concentrations of French overseas forces.

Large fire caused by kite sent from Gaza rages outside Israeli kibbutz-Nine firefighting teams, 4 planes said participating in efforts to douse flames; second fire reported in area-By TOI staff-JUL 9,18

Two fires blazed near Israeli communities near the Gaza Strip Saturday afternoon, caused by incendiary kites flown into Israel from the territory.A large fire was raging near Kibbutz Or Haner, Channel 10 news reported. Nine firefighting teams were at the scene, with the support of four firefighting aircraft.A second fire was reported near Kibbutz Nir Am.Officials said there was no current danger to the communities themselves.Recent months have seen an uptick in violence at the Gaza border, with weekly violent Palestinian protests, ongoing rocket attacks, and the new phenomenon of incendiary kites and balloons flown over the border, sometimes at a rate of several dozen each day.The incendiary devices have sparked near-daily fires that have burned thousands of acres of farmland, parks, and forests. Some have been found connected to explosive devices.On Friday police launched a campaign urging children to stay away from any unknown kites, balloons, or drones they may find on the ground this summer.On Friday thousands of Israelis took part in a rally near Gaza calling for the return of the bodies of IDF soldiers held by Hamas.Some 4,000 people took part in the Israeli event, waving Israeli flags and flying blue kites in a peaceful counter to the flaming airborne devices launched at Israel in recent months from Gaza.Separately Friday, a few thousand Palestinians participated in the weekly “March of Return” protests on the Gaza border. One was reported killed when a device he was holding exploded.

Abbas adviser compares Israeli security at Temple Mount to Nazism, Inquisition-Mahmoud Habbash laments restrictions on Muslim access to Al-Aqsa Mosque: 'Are they trying to do to others what was done to them?'-By TOI staff-JUL 9,18

A religious affairs adviser to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas compared Israel’s security measures for Muslims at the Temple Mount compound to those employed against Jews during the Spanish Inquisition and the Holocaust.In remarks last week on Palestine TV, Mahmoud Habbash lamented restrictions on access to the Al-Aqsa Mosque, which sits on the holy site known in Arabic as Haram al-Sharif.“There are roadblocks, restrictions, closure of the gates, road closures, and age restrictions… People who are under 40 years of age are not allowed to pray,” Habbash said, according to a translation provided by the Middle East Media Research Institute.“Dear God! What is this? What historical age are we living in?” said Habbash, also the PA’s supreme Sharia judge. “In the days of the Inquisition? Are they trying to do to others what was done to them in the ghettos, in the Inquisition courts, or in the Nazi courts? Is this or is this not the Inquisition?”“It is an Israeli Zionist Inquisition, which is trying to violate one’s human dignity, and the dignity of religious belief and of human faith in God,” the PA official concluded.The Temple Mount houses the Dome of the Rock and the Al-Aqsa mosque, and is considered Islam’s third holiest site. It is the holiest place in Judaism, revered by Jews as the location of the Jewish Temples.Under the present arrangement instituted by Israel after it captured Jerusalem’s Old City in 1967, the site remains under Jordan’s religious custodianship. Jews are allowed to visit the compound under the existing arrangements but are barred from religious worship or prayer.Israel does not restrict access for Muslims in Israel, including East Jerusalem, to the site. It has sometimes closed the area to men under 40 at times of high security alert, but has not done so recently. It does routinely maintain restrictions on West Bank Palestinians entering the country, amid its overall security procedures.Israel and Jordan signed a peace accord in 1994, but relations have long been cold.Last July the holy site became the focus of a major crisis between Israeli authorities, Palestinians, and Jordan over security measures taken at the entrances to the compound. Metal detectors and cameras were installed following a deadly attack in which three Arab Israelis emerged from the site and shot dead two Israeli police officers using weapons that had been smuggled onto the Temple Mount. The upgraded security measures were all ultimately removed.Early last year Habbash warned that the Trump administration’s plans — since realized — to move the US embassy to Jerusalem were “a declaration of war on all Muslims.”

Duterte vows to resign if anybody can prove God exists in a selfie-Days after calling God 'stupid,' controversial Philippine president implores heavily Catholic nation to produce photographic evidence of the divine-By AP-JUL 9,18-TOI

MANILA, Philippines — The Philippine president, who recently sparked outrage for calling God stupid, has courted new controversy in his largely Roman Catholic country by saying he will resign if anybody can prove that God exists.President Rodrigo Duterte, who has had a thorny relationship with the church, questioned anew in a speech late Friday some of the basic tenets of the Catholic faith, including the concept of original sin, which he said taints even innocent infants and can only be removed through baptism in a church for a fee.“Where is the logic of God there?” Duterte asked in a speech at the opening of a science and technology event in southern Davao city.The 73-year-old leader said that if there’s “one single witness” who can prove, perhaps with a picture or a selfie that a human was “able to talk [with] and to see God,” he will immediately resign.Duterte, however, suggested that there must be a God or a supreme being that prevents billions of stars and celestial bodies from colliding in a frequency that could have long threatened the human race.Last week, he was slammed, including by some of his political allies, for calling God “stupid” in another speech, with one Catholic bishop calling him a “psychopath.”Duterte lamented in that speech that Adam and Eve’s sin in Christian theology resulted in all the faithful falling from divine grace.“Who is this stupid God? This son of a bitch is then really stupid,” he said last week. “You were not involved but now you’re stained with an original sin … What kind of a religion is that? That’s what I can’t accept, very stupid proposition.”Opposition Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV shot back at Duterte by describing him as “one evil man” and his remarks as “very much consistent with the deceitfulness, heartlessness, and ruthlessness of his policies.Presidential spokesman Harry Roque has defended his remarks, saying Duterte has the right to express his opinion on religion and cited the president’s previous disclosure that he was once sexually abused by a priest.Duterte on Friday recalled that experience, when he said he and other students were fondled by a foreign Jesuit priest, who has since died.Amid the criticisms, officials have arranged a meeting between Duterte and the head of the largest association of Catholic bishops on Monday. Filipino bishops opened an annual conference in Manila Saturday and were expected to address Duterte’s tirades when they conclude their meeting on Monday.Some Catholic bishops have been critical of Duterte’s brutal crackdown against illegal drugs, which have left thousands of suspects dead in reported clashes with the police, along with his vulgar and expletive-laden speeches. He once called Pope Francis a “son of a bitch” for sparking a monstrous traffic jam during a 2015 visit in Manila that trapped Duterte for hours.

Fire likely cause of 2016 EgyptAir crash, French investigators say-Information acquired from flight recorders suggests blaze broke out and spread rapidly, 'causing the loss of control of the aircraft'; officials suspect phone or tablet to blame-By AFP-TOI-JUL 9,18

French investigators said Friday a cockpit fire likely caused the 2016 EgyptAir MS804 crash that claimed the lives of 66 passengers and crew, contradicting Egyptian authorities who said explosives traces were found on the victims’ remains.France’s civil aviation accident bureau, known by its French acronym BEA, said that information gleaned from the flight recorders suggested that “a fire broke out in the cockpit while the plane was at cruising altitude and the fire spread rapidly, causing the loss of control of the aircraft.”The Airbus A320 was flying from Paris to Cairo on May 19, 2016 when it crashed into the southeastern Mediterranean, killing 66 people, including 40 Egyptians and 15 French citizens.French investigators had always leaned towards a mechanical fault as the cause of the crash, saying they suspected that a mobile phone or tablet had caught fire.An official Egyptian investigation suggested the plane had been bombed, claiming traces of explosives had been found on the victims’ remains. But a source close to the French investigation previously said no such traces were found by the team.The BEA said the crew could be heard discussing a fire on the cockpit voice recorder and that the plane’s automatic ACARS messaging system had flagged up smoke on board.It said it was waiting for Egypt to publish its final report into the crash to understand how the two countries arrived at a different conclusion.Times of Israel staff contributed to this report.

Pope denounces ‘complicit silence’ on Mideast attacks against Christians-Francis and Orthodox patriarchs pray for peace in region 'covered by dark clouds of war, violence and destruction'-By Trisha Thomas and Nicole Winfield-TOI-JUL 9,18

BARI, Italy (AP) — Pope Francis denounced the “complicit silence” that has allowed violence to consume the Middle East and drive tens of thousands of Christians from their homes, during a remarkable gathering Saturday of Orthodox patriarchs and Catholic leaders united in praying for peace in the region.Francis hosted the daylong ecumenical service in the symbolically rich Adriatic port city of Bari, considered a bridge between East and West and home to the relics of St. Nicholas, an important saint in the Orthodox world.Francis greeted the patriarchs outside the Basilica of St. Nicholas and together they descended to the crypt to pray before the relics and light a flame for peace symbolizing the unity of Christians.For years, the Vatican has voiced concern about the plight of Christians driven from Mideast communities that date to the time of Christ. Just last week, Francis decried intensified attacks in southern Syria that killed scores of people and forced tens of thousands to flee.In his opening prayer, Francis said the Middle East represented the source of Christianity, where ancient Christian rites and heritage are preserved and where “our very souls are rooted.”And yet, in recent years the region has been “covered by dark clouds of war, violence and destruction, instances of occupation and varieties of fundamentalism, forced migration and neglect,” he said.“All this has taken place amid the complicit silence of many,” he lamented. “The Middle East has become a land of people who leave their own lands behind.”In a prayer service punctuated by haunting Arabic chant and Catholic hymn, Francis said the Orthodox and Catholic leaders wanted to give voice to those who have none.“Indifference kills, and we desire to lift up our voices in opposition to this murderous indifference,” he said. “For the Middle East today is weeping, suffering and silent as others trample upon those lands in search of power or riches.”Among the patriarchs on hand was the spiritual leader of the world’s Orthodox Christians, Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I, as well as patriarchs from ancient churches of Alexandria, Antioch and Jerusalem. Notably absent from the gathering was Patriarch Kirill, head of the Russian Orthodox Church, which has been a strong supporter of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s military intervention in Syria. Kirill sent his deputy, Metropolitan Hilarion.

Spain emerges as EU's new weak link for Africa migration-[Reuters]-By Sonya Dowsett, Ahmed Eljechtimi and Gabriela Baczynska-YAHOONEWS-July 9, 2018

TARIFA, Spain/RABAT/BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Spain has become the new main entry point for asylum-seekers fleeing Africa, an influx that European Union officials fear could exacerbate political tensions across the region over migration.Around 19,000 asylum-seekers arrived in Spain in the first five months of this year, almost as many as arrived there in all of 2017, eclipsing for the first time the numbers flowing through north Africa to Italy.The surge has intensified in recent weeks as Italy's new government shut its ports to most asylum-seekers, rescue officials say.With the EU struggling to contain dissent over migration policy, some officials in Brussels say they worry that Spain could become a new flash-point, even as overall numbers of arrivals into Europe from Africa are in sharp decline."We must not let it blow up," an EU diplomat said.He said the Morocco-Spain route had been kept under control for years. "It's not dramatic for now, but we are keeping an eye on this one."Spain's new socialist prime minister, Pedro Sanchez, has been welcoming, and accepted two boat-loads of asylum-seekers denied port entry by Italy even as the number of boats from Morocco also rose.The asylum-seekers are arriving in mostly inflatable boats each week, often without enough fuel for the crossing, straining Spain's coastguard. Madrid is training more lifeguards to deal with the rising numbers, coastguard union officials say.People-smugglers in Morocco use a rights activist to contact the coastguard, advising it when boats set off for Spain, said coastguard official Oriol Estrada."The people traffickers know that the lifeguards are going to come for them," said Estrada, whose vessel has rescued around 1,200 people so far this year, more than 80 percent of its total for 2017."They call to say that a certain boat has left such-and-such a coast at a certain time with however many people. They even give the names of those aboard."A similar situation developed off Libya before Rome's recent crackdown, prompting Italy's ruling League party to accuse rescue ships of running a "taxi service".-'I WANT TO GO TO EUROPE'-Rescue officials working in the Strait of Gibraltar say more Asian migrants from countries like Pakistan and Sri Lanka are also crossing, another sign that smuggling networks are focusing more of their efforts on Spain.Morocco is a destination in itself for those fleeing poverty and violence in sub-Saharan Africa, but it has become more of a stepping stone as people determined to reach Europe realize the Libya-Italy route may be worse than futile, refugees say."In Libya I saw migrants being fired at with live ammunition. A friend of mine was killed in front of my eyes by a Libyan teenager," said Guinea migrant Oumar Dialo, who tried and failed to reach Europe via Libya before ending up in Morocco."I would never recommend Libya even to my enemy."Speaking in Rabat, Dialo said he had tried to reach Spain by crossing a fence on the border of Morocco and Spain's north African enclave of Ceuta, but fell and broke his leg. He said he would try to reach Spain again when the time was right, to pursue his dream of becoming a professional roller-skater."I want to go to Europe because I want to help my family and become a professional roller," he said.Morocco said it was boosting efforts to counter illegal immigration this summer, the busiest time for sea crossings."Morocco is committed to cooperating with its partners in the fight against illegal migration," government spokesperson Mustapha El Khalfi said.EU officials in Brussels are struggling to agree on a joint response to migration to calm tensions in Italy and Germany. Leaders signaled their concerns over Spain last week when they reached a new accord on the issue, pledging to support Madrid and Morocco to stem the tide.A Spanish government spokesman told Reuters the arrivals trend started more than a year ago and was not a result of any one factor. He added Spain is pushing for policy in Europe to be harmonized, however.There are early signs that Sanchez might feel political pressure to toughen his approach if the influx continues to pick up speed.Fernando Maura, foreign policy spokesman for the center-right opposition Ciudadanos party, said the prime minister's current approach risked creating a "pull factor"."When you send out a signal of this kind, it could well be received by those who want to come to Europe," he said.(This story was corrected to delete reference to record year in paragraph two.)(Additional reporting by Steve Scherer in ROME; Editing by Mark Bendeich and Sonya Hepinstall)

38 dead, nearly 50 reported missing as heavy rain hits Japan-People flee to rooftops and balconies, waving furiously at hovering rescue helicopters-By YURI KAGEYAMA-TOI-JUL 9,18

TOKYO (AP) — Torrents of rainfall and flooding battered a widespread area in southwestern Japan on Saturday, with local media casualty reports climbing quickly. Public broadcaster NHK said 38 people were dead, four were injured seriously, and 47 were missing.Television footage showed a residential area in Okayama prefecture seeped in brown water spreading like a huge lake. Some people fled to rooftops and balconies and waved furiously at hovering rescue helicopters.Okayama prefecture said a man caught in a landslide died, and six others were missing. Evacuation orders had been issued to more than 360,000 people, the prefecture said in a statement.Throughout the affected areas, parked cars sat in pools of water. NHK TV said water had reached as high as 5 meters (16 feet) in the worst-hit areas.Kyodo news service, which put the death tally at 34 people, said one death was in a landslide in Hiroshima, which had set off a fire, while the body of a child was found in another area. NHK said a woman died in her home in Hiroshima when it got buried in a mudslide.Assessing overall casualties was a challenge because of the widespread damage. NHK repeatedly urged those awaiting rescue to not lose hope.In Ehime prefecture, a woman was found dead on the second floor of a home hit by a landslide, Kyodo said. Also in Ehime, two elementary-school girls and their mother, who got sucked into a mudslide, were rescued but their hearts weren’t beating, it said.Kyoto prefecture said it was working to control flooding at several dams and identified one fatality as a 52-year-old woman.Military water trucks were rushing to areas where water systems were no longer working, Okayama prefecture said. Troops in camouflage outfits helped people and pets reach dry land on small military boats.Evacuation orders or advisories were sent for 4.72 million people, and 48,000 members of the Self-Defense Forces, police, and firefighters were mobilized for search missions, according to Kyodo.

Recovery divers in Thai boat disaster confronted by underwater tomb-Volunteers leading grim task of retrieving bodies of 41 Chinese tourists from sunken vessel, including mothers still clutching their infants-By Elizabeth Law-TOI-JUL 9,18

PHUKET, Thailand (AFP) — A scene of horror in the hull of a sunken boat: mothers still holding babies, their bodies suspended in water as the lower lounge of the Phoenix became a tomb in one of Thailand’s worst ever sea disasters.At least 41 people died — all Chinese tourists — when the Phoenix went down in rough seas on Thursday.Fifteen people are still missing but two days later flickers of hope for miracle survivals are all but extinguished.While some 48 passengers and crew managed to flee the sinking vessel by jumping into the sea or mounting life rafts, many were trapped in the main lounge as the pleasure boat plummeted 40 meters into the Andaman Sea.“It’s difficult… it’s traumatic… as you can imagine when you find dead bodies, children, kids, in the arms of the mother in the wreck,” said Philippe Entremont, the manager of a Phuket dive shop who was helping coordinate the underwater search.“But now the best thing to do for us, our job is to find the bodies and bring them back to the families,” the Frenchman added.Dozens of rescuers — including volunteers and recreational divers — have scoured the waters for two days, in an area known for its reefs.Most of Thailand’s diving experts have been diverted to the north to a rescue operation at a flooded cave where 12 schoolboys have been trapped for two weeks.That left volunteers in Phuket leading the grim task of trying to retrieve bodies from the sunken vessel.Entremont said those going down are specially trained to dive at depth — the boat has sunk to about 47 meters.South African Dominic Robnik, who has been involved in the search on both days, called the scenes “very, very sad.”“There was a lot of debris, shoes, glass, and even personal belongings, so we had to navigate through all that,” he said.Divers were positioned every five meters so recovered bodies were slowly passed up to the surface, Robnik said, adding that he had helped move at least six bodies.One body has been particularly hard to retrieve after it was trapped by the sunken boat, the divers said, adding that they were ready to bring in specialized equipment.But late Saturday afternoon, the underwater search was stopped with the Thai navy taking over the operation.The bodies would “surface naturally” according to Rear Admiral Charoenphone Khumrasee.It is the grim reality of boat disasters, said Entremont.“Maybe in a few days’ time we’ll find them on a beach somewhere drifting away.”

North Korea says talks with Pompeo were ‘regrettable’-Pyongyang accuses Washington of trying to unilaterally pressure it into abandoning its nukes even as the US describes the meetings as 'productive'-By ANDREW HARNIK and Matthew Lee-TOI-JUL 9,18

PYONGYANG, North Korea (AP) — North Korea said Saturday that high-level talks with a US delegation led by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo were “regrettable” and accused Washington of trying to unilaterally pressure the country into abandoning its nukes.The North’s statement came hours after Pompeo wrapped up two days of talks with senior North Korean officials without meeting North Korean leader Kim Jong Un but with commitments for new discussions on denuclearization and the repatriation of the remains of American soldiers killed during the Korean War.Before departing Pyongyang, Pompeo told reporters that his conversations with senior North Korean official Kim Yong Chol had been “productive,” conducted “in good faith,” and that “a great deal of progress” had been made in some areas. He stressed that “there’s still more work to be done” in other areas, much of which would be done by working groups that the two sides have set up to deal with specific issues.The North provided a much harsher assessment of the talks, saying that the United States betrayed the spirit of last month’s summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim by making “one-sided and robber-like” demands on “CVID,” or the complete, verifiable, and irreversible denuclearization of North Korea.It said the outcome of the follow-up talks was “very concerning” because it has led to a “dangerous phase that might rattle our willingness for denuclearization that had been firm.”“We had expected that the US side would offer constructive measures that would help build trust based on the spirit of the leaders’ summit … we were also thinking about providing reciprocal measures,” an unnamed spokesman of Pyongyang’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement carried by the North’s official Korean Central News Agency.“However, the attitude and stance the United States showed in the first high-level meeting [between the countries] was no doubt regrettable,” the spokesman said.Pompeo said that a Pentagon team would be meeting with North Korean officials on or about July 12 at the border between North and South Korea to discuss the repatriation of remains and that working level talks would be held soon on the destruction of North Korea’s missile engine testing facility.In the days following his historic June 12 summit with Kim Jong Un in Singapore, President Donald Trump had announced that the return of the remains and the destruction of the missile facility had been completed or were in progress.Pompeo, however, said that more talks were needed on both.“We now have a meeting set up for July 12 — it could move by one day or two — where there will be discussions between the folks responsible for the repatriation of remains. [It] will take place at the border and that process will begin to develop over the days that follow,” he said as he boarded his plane for Tokyo.On the destruction of the missile engine plant, Pompeo said, “We talked about what the modalities would look like for the destruction of that facility as well, and some progress there as well, and then we have laid out a path for further negotiation at the working level so the two teams can get together and continue these discussions.”Earlier, Pompeo and Kim Yong Chol both said they needed clarity on the parameters of an agreement to denuclearize the Korean Peninsula that Trump and Kim Jong Un agreed to in Singapore. The trip was Pompeo’s third to Pyongyang since April and his first since the summit.Unlike his previous visits, which have been one-day affairs during which he has met with Kim Jong Un, Pompeo spent the night at a government guesthouse in Pyongyang and did not see the North Korean leader, although US officials had suggested such a meeting was expected. State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said no meeting with Kim Jong Un had been planned.As they began their talks on Saturday, Kim Yong Chol alluded to the fact that Pompeo and his delegation had stayed overnight in Pyongyang.“We did have very serious discussions on very important matters yesterday,” Kim said. “So, thinking about those discussions you might have not slept well last night.”Pompeo, who spoke with Trump, national security adviser John Bolton, and White House chief of staff John Kelly by secure phone before starting Saturday’s session, replied that he “slept just fine.” He added that the Trump administration was committed to reaching a deal under which North Korea would denuclearize and realize economic benefits in return.Kim later said that “there are things that I have to clarify” to which Pompeo responded that “there are things that I have to clarify as well.”There was no immediate explanation of what needed to be clarified, but the two sides have been struggling to specify what exactly “denuclearization” would entail and how it could be verified to the satisfaction of the United States.Pompeo and Kim met for nearly three hours Friday and then had dinner amid growing skepticism over how serious Kim Jong Un is about giving up his nuclear arsenal and translating the upbeat rhetoric following his summit with Trump into concrete action.On his flight to Pyongyang, Pompeo said both sides made commitments at the Singapore summit on the complete denuclearization of North Korea and on what a transformed relationship between their two countries might look like.One hoped-for breakthrough on this trip would have been the return of the remains of US troops killed during the 1950-53 Korean War. North Korea committed at last month’s summit to the “immediate repatriation” of remains already identified, but that hasn’t happened yet.

Thousands head home in south Syria after ceasefire deal, monitor says-Calm reported in Daraa region Saturday as sides finalize truce; regime troops celebrate recapture of border crossing with Jordan-By Agencies-TOI-JUL 9,18

Thousands of displaced Syrians were heading home Saturday after rebels and the government reached a ceasefire deal in the south following more than two weeks of deadly bombardment, a monitor said.Under the agreement announced Friday after talks between rebels and regime ally Moscow, opposition fighters will hand over territory and heavy weapons in Daraa province near the Jordanian border.The Russia-backed regime offensive has displaced around 320,000 people since June 19, the United Nations says, including tens of thousands who fled south to the sealed border with Jordan.Calm reigned over the region on Saturday as the two sides finalized the ceasefire deal, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitoring group said.“People have started to return to their homes since yesterday, taking advantage of the calm,” Observatory chief Rami Abdel Rahman said.“More than 20,000 people have set off for home so far, heading to areas for which an accord has been reached in the southeastern Daraa countryside,” he said.But others “are scared to return to regime-controlled areas, fearing their children will be arrested,” Abdel Rahman said.The accord follows a string of similar deals with rebels for other areas of Syria, which have seen the regime retake more than 60 percent of the country, according to the Observatory.A government takeover of Daraa would be a symbolic victory for President Bashar Assad as the province was the cradle of the uprising against him seven years ago that led to civil war.More than 150 civilians have been killed in the regime bombing campaign on Daraa since June 19, the Observatory says.Under Friday’s deal, rebels are expected to hand over their heavy weapons, while those who reject the agreement will be bused with their families to the rebel-held northwestern province of Idlib, state media has said.Government forces will also take over “all observation posts along the Syrian-Jordanian border,” it said Friday, hours after the regime regained control of the vital Nassib border crossing with Jordan.Syrian soldiers celebrated the recapture of the main border crossing with Jordan Saturday, raising portraits of Assad and tearing down rebel flags.Troops captured the Naseeb border crossing a day earlier. State-run Ikhbariya TV showed troops at the crossing, some flashing victory signs and pumping fists in the air as they shouted pro-Assad slogans. A soldier could be seen hoisting the Syrian flag on top of a watchtower. Another tore down the rebel flag from a building.One officer told the TV outlet that troops have taken up positions along the border with Jordan and are removing illegal crossing points.“We have ended their existence,” he said of the rebels. “They have no future anymore, God willing.”State-run news agency SANA said the army deployed at the crossing after combing and clearing it of the remnants of “terrorist groups.” It said Syrian army units have also established control over the town of Nuaima in the past 24 hours.The rebels seized control of the crossing in 2015, severing a lifeline for Syrian exports and disrupting a trade route between Syria and Jordan, Lebanon and the oil-rich Gulf countries.The rebels in southern Syria once received significant backing and support from the US that has receded and all but dried up over the past few years. Although the US government negotiated a deescalation agreement for southern Syria last year, it has remained silent as Assad’s forces marched onto Daraa in the past two weeks.The government’s offensive near the Israeli border began on June 19, and is now expected to turn more forcefully toward retaking Quneitra, potentially setting up a clash between Israel and Hezbollah and Iran unless they agree to stay away from the area as Israel demands.

Israeli spy firm targeted NGOs tied to Soros before Hungary election — report-Agents for secretive intel company obtained recordings later used by PM Viktor Orban to claim Jewish billionaire is trying to take control of the country, POLITICO reports-By TOI staff-JUL 9,18

Secretive Israeli intelligence firm Black Cube was hired to engage in a campaign to discredit local NGOs, along with individuals connected to Jewish billionaire George Soros, ahead of Hungary’s presidential election earlier this year, POLITICO reported Friday.Recordings made by operatives of the Tel Aviv-based company were then used by Prime Minister Viktor Orban to attack rights groups and Soros himself in the days leading up to his landslide election victory in April, the report said.The magazine cited a former employee of the firm as well as an individual with knowledge of the organization who both confirmed the details. It provided numerous pieces of evidence backing up its claim, including addresses and names of fake individuals and companies used in the operation which Black Cube has used in the past.Politico said operatives for the company met with officials from local civil rights groups under false pretenses and identities, and made compromising recordings of those officials.Recordings included statements on efforts to lobby foreign governments to pressure Hungary against legislation cracking down on those NGOs. These were leaked to The Jerusalem Post and the state newspaper Magyar Idok, which both published stories on the issues.Orban himself used them in claiming enemies inside and outside Hungary were attempting to gain control of the country.“Soros’s people will be installed in government — this is what the ‘Soros Leaks’ recordings tell us,” Orban said in one interview before the election, in quotes provided by POLITICO.“If Soros’s people have influence in government, they will occupy the Hungarian energy sector and the banking system. And the Hungarian people will pay the price for that.”It is not known who hired Black Cube to allegedly conduct the operation. The report’s two sources were unable to confirm whether the money the Israeli firm was given for its work came from the Hungarian government, and a spokesman for the latter declined to comment on the claims.A spokesperson for Black Cube told the news magazine that the company’s policy is to not confirm or deny such claims made regarding its operations.Since 1979, the Hungarian-born Soros has funneled tens of billions of dollars into his Open Society Foundations (OSF), which in turn fund civil society groups around the world.Orban, who based his campaign on demonizing migrants, accuses Soros and organizations supported by his Open Society Foundations of seeking to allow thousands of immigrants into Hungary.In the lead up to the campaign, Orban’s Fidesz party plastered the country with billboards “warning” about Soros.One of them depicted the philanthropist and opposition candidates holding wire-cutters to destroy the razor-wire fence that Orban erected on the Serbian border in 2015 to keep out migrants.Orban and his government repeatedly attacked Soros using language that some critics have said has anti-Semitic undertones.While Black Cube has been accused of involvement in controversial dealings in the past, the POLITICO report claims the Hungarian presidential campaign would be the first time the private intelligence firm’s work has been allegedly used in an election campaign.As part of the operation, Black Cube agents met with the NGO staffers and Soros allies in various cities across Europe and the US pretending to be supporters. They used fake aliases, but two of them had “discernible Israeli accents,” those who met with them told POLITICO.After meetings with the intelligence firm’s targets were completed, information on the fabricated companies the agents had pretended to represent was deleted from the internet and telephone numbers were disconnected.-Black Cube logo-According to POLITICO, one of the fake email addresses given by Black Cube agents had been used in another operation launched by the private intelligence firm targeting actress Rose McGowan, after she accused Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein of rape.A Black Cube board member later apologized for his firm’s work on behalf of Weinstein, and said it would not have assisted the disgraced producer had it had known it was helping suppress sexual assault allegations against him.Black Cube’s name has come up in a number of other high-profile intelligence gathering operations.In May, the New Yorker magazine reported that the firm was allegedly hired by aids to US President Donald Trump to dig up dirt on Obama officials in order to discredit the Iran nuclear deal.The operation in 2017 reportedly targeted Ann Norris, a former US State Department official who is married to Ben Rhodes, a foreign-policy adviser to former president Barack Obama and a prominent advocate of the Iran nuclear deal. It also targeted Rebecca Kahl, a former program officer at the National Democratic Institute and the wife of the former Obama administration foreign-policy adviser Colin Kahl.And Christopher Wylie, the whistleblower who revealed that data analysts Cambridge Analytica had harvested details of 50 million Facebook users and used the material in Trump’s election campaign, also told the British parliament that Black Cube was involved in a hacking scheme targeting the president of Nigeria.Black Cube denied involvement in both operations, in apparent deviations from its aforementioned policy of not confirming or denying reports on its work.Along with a second private intelligence company, Psy-Group, it is being sued for alleged defamation in a Canadian lawsuit by hedge fund West Face Capital Inc., for $500 million in damages. In one instance cited in that case, a Black Cube operative is alleged to have tried to entrap a retired Canadian judge into making anti-Semitic comments.In response to a Times of Israel request for comment on that case, Black Cube said last month: “It is Black Cube’s policy to never discuss its clients with any third party, and to never confirm or deny any speculation made with regard to the company’s work. Referencing Black Cube has become an international sport during 2018. It is important to note that Black Cube always operates in full compliance of the law in every jurisdiction in which it conducts its work, following legal advice from the world’s leading law firms.”

Iran executes 8 over 2017 Islamic State attack on Tehran-Mass hangings take place over a year after assault on parliament and shrine of Ayatollah Khomeini that killed at least 18 people and wounded more than 50-By Amir Vahdat and Jon Gambrell-TOI-JUL 9,18

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran said Saturday it executed eight people convicted in the 2017 Islamic State group attack on parliament and the shrine of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini in Tehran.The June 7, 2017 attack has so far been the only assault by the Sunni extremists inside of Shiite Iran, which has been deeply involved in the wars in Iraq and Syria where the militants once held vast territory.The judiciary’s official Mizan news agency and semi-official news agencies in Iran acknowledged the executions Saturday, but did not say when they took place. Executions in Iran are carried out by hangings.While Iran is one of the world’s top enforcers of the death penalty, such mass executions are rare. In August 2016, human rights activists criticized Iran for carrying out the mass execution of 20 Sunni militants from a group identified as Jihad and Tawhid after a six-year trial. In August 2007, Iran hanged seven men convicted of rape in Mashhad at the same time.Mizan noted in its report that the executions came after the eight men had been tried and convicted in a trial that included both eyewitness testimony and video footage showing their involvement.“These eight worked directly … in martyring and wounding a number of innocent compatriots,” Mizan said.The news agencies on Saturday named those executed as Soleiman Mozafari, Esmail Sufi, Rahman Behrouz, Majed Mortezai, Sirous Azizi, Ayoub Esmaili, Khosro Ramezani and Osman Behrouz.The Islamic State attack killed at least 18 people and wounded more than 50. It saw gunmen carrying Kalashnikov assault rifles and explosives storm the parliament complex where a legislative session had been in progress, starting an hours-long siege.Meanwhile, gunmen and suicide bombers also struck outside Khomeini’s mausoleum on Tehran’s southern outskirts. Khomeini led the 1979 Islamic Revolution that toppled the Western-backed shah to become Iran’s first supreme leader until his death in 1989.The assault shocked Tehran, which largely has avoided militant attacks in the decades after the tumult surrounding the Islamic Revolution.Over a dozen others remain on trial over the attack. Iran’s paramilitary Revolutionary Guard responded to the attack by launching six missiles into eastern Syria targeting IS militants.Iran was second only to China in 2017 in the number of known executions carried out, according to Amnesty International. Iran executed over 500 people last year, according to the group.The IS executions come as controversy still swirls in Iran surrounding the country’s mass executions of 1988 near the end of the Iran-Iraq War. Activists at the time said Iran executed as many as 5,000 people after sham trials of Communists, Kurdish separatists, political prisoners and members of an Iranian exile group known as the Mujahedeen-e-Khalq.The executions represent one of the darkest moments of Iran’s post-revolution history and are still not recognized by its government.

Two US destroyers sail into Taiwan Strait: Taiwan gov't-[AFP]-YAHOONEWS-July 7, 2018

Taipei (AFP) - Two United States warships entered the Taiwan Strait on Saturday, the Taiwanese government said, at a time of heightened tensions between Washington and Beijing.The destroyers USS Mustin and USS Benfold sailed into the narrow waterway separating Taiwan and China on Saturday morning and were expected to continue on a northeast course, Taiwan's defence ministry said in a statement."The military is monitoring the situation in neighbouring areas, and has the confidence and abilities to maintain regional stability and defend national security," the statement added.A defence ministry official told AFP the ships were still in the strait on Saturday night, sailing in what he described as international waters.The warships’ entry into the strait comes as Washington and Beijing are locked in a trade war and as tensions escalate between Beijing and Taipei.China sees self-ruling democratic Taiwan as part of its territory to be reunified, but the island sees itself as a sovereign country.Although the US does not have official diplomatic relations with Taiwan, it is its most powerful ally and biggest arms supplier.China has stepped up diplomatic and military pressure on Taiwan since Beijing-sceptic President Tsai Ing-wen took office two years ago as her government refuses to acknowledge that the island is part of "one China."Relations between the US and Taiwan have warmed recently as President Donald Trump signed legislation paving the way for mutual visits by top officials and the US government approved a licence required to sell submarine technology to Taiwan.

          Floating Prison Drones Equal Menace In 'The Furnace'      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
When we think about prison, we tend to think about vision. For centuries the ultimate prison design has been Jeremy Bentham's Panopticon, which allows a single guard to monitor numerous prisoners without them knowing exactly when they're being watched. In modern times, the theme of vision governs prison policy outside the walls, too. Americans don't want to see what goes on in our prisons, so we put them far away — sometimes even in other countries' hinterlands, where their very existence is kept secret. But we get curious, so we generate floods of fictional and documentary entertainment promising uncensored glimpses through the bars. All these paradoxes fuel Prentis Rollins' sci-fi graphic novel The Furnace . Rollins imagines a future where society simultaneously expunges prisoners from its landscape and makes their plight powerfully, alarmingly conspicuous. In a concept similar to the "blocking" technology from the "Arkangel" episode of Netflix's Black Mirror , Rollins' near-future

          On Controller Design for Systems on Manifolds in Euclidean Space. (arXiv:1807.03475v1 [math.OC])      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Authors: Dong Eui Chang

A new method is developed to design controllers in Euclidean space for systems defined on manifolds. The idea is to embed the state-space manifold $M$ of a given control system into some Euclidean space $\mathbb R^n$, extend the system from $M$ to the ambient space $\mathbb R^n$, and modify it outside $M$ to add transversal stability to $M$ in the final dynamics in $\mathbb R^n$. Controllers are designed for the final system in the ambient space $\mathbb R^n$. Then, their restriction to $M$ produces controllers for the original system on $M$. This method has the merit that only one single global Cartesian coordinate system in the ambient space $\mathbb R^n$ is used for controller synthesis, and any controller design method in $\mathbb R^n$, such as the linearization method, can be globally applied for the controller synthesis. The proposed method is successfully applied to the tracking problem for the following two benchmark systems: the fully actuated rigid body system and the quadcopter drone system.

          Droga: irreperibile da giorni viene arrestato da Carabinieri a Siderno (RC)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

I carabinieri di Siderno e dello squadrone eliportato Cacciatori Calabria hanno arrestato Domenico Catalano, di 29 anni, di Siderno, irreperibile da alcuni giorni dopo un'ordinanza di custodia cautelare in carcere emessa dal gip di Locri per reati in materia di droga. Alla vista dei carabinieri, l'uomo ha cercato di far perdere le proprie tracce uscendo da una finestra dell'abitazione della nonna e fuggendo sui tetti di alcune abitazioni vicine ma è stato bloccato dopo un breve inseguimento. Il provvedimento restrittivo a carico di Catalano trae origine dal blitz compiuto la settimana scorso dai carabinieri che hanno arrestato altre due persone, scoprendo una coltivazione di canapa indiana composta da poco meno di 1.500 piante e di un essiccatoio, ricavato all'interno di un'abitazione abbandonata, con all'interno 21 chili di marijuana già pronta per essere suddivisa in dosi e immessa nel mercato della droga.

          Il Presidente del Comitato regionale della Fip Calabria Paolo Surace fa il punto all’interno di un momento critico per il basket regionale      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Le notizie dell'ultimo periodo con la problematica della Viola e la conseguente vendita del titolo unita alle ultime notizie regionali di Lamezia, problema che sembra stato risolto ci mettono in ansia.
Basketball Lamezia ha risolto le sue problematiche e sarà in grado oggi stesso di perfezionare, seppur con ritardo, l'iscrizione al campionato di Serie B.
Relativamente alla Viola si è scritto e detto tanto: il team ha deciso di vendere il titolo alla Nuova Cestistica Barcellona.
Capitolo Viola -E' una situazione che dispiace perché perdere una società gloriosa ed un team di serie B allo stesso tempo fa male.
Scinderei l'aspetto imprenditoriale dall'aspetto sportivo: l'aspetto di vendere un titolo sportivo può essere una scelta difficile da comprendere ma rientra sempre nell'aspetto imprenditoriale della vicenda.
L'imprenditore fa le sue scelte indipendentemente dal campo seguendo altre logiche.
Poi c'è l'aspetto sportivo che ti lascia perplesso, ti coinvolge di più: l'impatto è stato forte e non è la prima volta che accade nella storia di questa squadra.
C'è la necessità alle nostre latitudini di creare progetti sostenibilipuntando principalmente su progetti giovanili.
Spesso ci si "riempie la bocca" sull'investire sul basket giovanile e di aver vinto questo o quell'altro titolo: il problema è nazionale.
Si investe poco sul basket dei giovani, su Istruttori ed allenatori qualificati programmando con foresterie e progetti a medio - lungo periodo.
La Fip nazionale ha percepito questa necessità e sta programmando l'attività futura verso questo.
Dobbiamo creare strutture solide, non d'argilla: vivere nel progetto che ci porta a vincere un campionato oggi e sparire domani non ci porta da nessuna parte.
Ripartiamo da progetti giovanili con persone che hanno come specificità questa attitudine e nel medio-lungo termine tutto il movimento giovanile ne trarrà vantaggio.

In tutto questo c'è il network di Catanzaro che da tanti anni ormai riesce a resistere alle problematiche gestionali grazie al serbatoio giovanile.
Probabilmente si attende sempre lo "squadrone", "la serie A", siamo reduci dalla news della richiesta di ripescaggio in B della Scuola di Basket Viola al Presidente Petrucci, è tutto molto complicato..

Catanzaro è un ottimo esempio di programmazione.
Negli ultimi anni è riuscita a fare la serie B con tanti talenti sfornati dal settore giovanile.
Non dimentichiamoci di ragazzi partiti da Catanzaro e diventati ottimi atleti di categoria come Andrea Scuderi e Gianluca Carpanzano per esempio.
Non sono gli unici esempi, sia chiaro.
La missiva della Viola?Ho parlato con Gaetano Condello ed ho seguito la vicenda personalmente.
E' una vicenda un po complessa perché aldilà del "fuori-termine" , ampiamente scaduto per fare la richiesta ci sono anche le squadre aventi diritto già in lista per un eventuale posto in Serie B.
SI attenderà l'ultimo giorno delle iscrizioni, incluse le quarantotto ore successive per poi capire se ci potranno essere le condizioni per l'accoglimento della richiesta.

Siamo reduci dalla quattordicesima edizione del Trofeo del Mediterraneo.
L'Rtt Simona Pronestì ci "è andata giù" in maniera propositiva ma decisa sottolineando la mancata partecipazione attiva da parte delle società. Un suo giudizio?

Coach Pronestì è stata chiara ma lo diciamo da tempo.
Il problema degli alibi.
Se pensiamo che il mancato risultato tecnico e del risultato sia colpa di qualcun'altra stiamo sbagliando strada.
Dobbiamo pensare che il nostro termine di paragone siamo noi stessi: non vedere cosa non va dando la colpa a qualcun'altro.
Abbiamo fatto un torneo bellissimo ma sia alla nostra kèrmesse che nei vari Centri Tecnici Federali abbiamo visto una scarsa presenza di allenatori: forse pensano "non ce ne sia bisogno".
Idem per gli arbitri: tranne i fischietti coinvolti non abbiamo visto nessun arbitro calabrese alla manifestazione.
Se pensiamo che la colpa è sempre dei Nas, della Fip regionale, quella nazionale, delle tasse gara, se andiamo a dire al ragazzino che non è stato convocato per colpa di quello o perché quello è litigato con quell'altro non andiamo da nessuna parte ed abbiamo un profilo culturale e sportivo bassissimo.
Dobbiamo pensare a crescere noi stessi non a trovare "una scusa"che non funziona e che si fanno poche partite: in questa stagione abbiamo fatto "l'impossibile", partite su partite, raduni su raduni.
Prima si facevano pochi raduni, prima le altre regioni partivano un anno prima: i 2005 di Sicilia che hanno vinto il Trofeo del Mediterraneo non hanno fatto un raduno.
Noi, ne abbiamo fatti tantissimi raduni ma sicuramente non siamo andati meglio della Sicilia: la verità è che le società devono iniziare a lavorare per bene.
Basta alibi che è colpa della programmazione: abbiamo un preciso limite di cultura sportiva, territoriale, sociale di pensare sempre che sia colpa di qualcun'altro.
Pensiamo a lavorare: dobbiamo liberarci dalle perdite di tempo che è colpa dell'arbitro o della mancata convocazione.

Ed il Codice etico?

Ha voluto cristallizzare e codificare situazioni pacifiche per tutti.
Siamo tutti d'accordo che bisogna avere un comportamento consono in campo e sugli spalti, tutti siamo d'accordo nell'accettare le convocazioni e che non bisogna protestare: nel momento in cui il principio ci colpisce, allora il principio non va più bene.
Cosa c'è di strano nel non far partecipare dei ragazzi la cui squadra è stata protagonista di un fatto spiacevole? Non siamo stati convocati perché qualcuno ha sbagliato e servirà per il futuro immediato.
Il codice etico è migliorabile: ma il principio va bene. E' fastidioso percepire che non va più bene quando colpisce qualcuno e non viene accettato.
Nessuno è mai escluso da nulla ma sono segnali che possono servire al movimento.
Facciamo capire ai nostri ragazzi che non c'è nulla di personale: la pallacanestro morirà sui personalismi.
Dobbiamo tutti limitare l'interesse personale per l'interesse comune.

Sarà un anno complicato di programmazione e ripartente. Ci saranno due squadre in Serie B e tante squadre giovanili e regionali.
Il claim è realtà sostenibili, non c'è altra via...

Il focus è questo.
Anche in passato abbiamo vissuto situazioni analoghe con promozioni sul campo non concretizzate l'anno dopo o problematiche di svariato tipo
Siamo stati molto propositivi con la Fip Nazionale: abbiamo in cantiere due progetti molto importanti in ambito femminile che vi illustreremo più avanti.
In questi anni e per il futuro vogliamo essere interlocutori diversi nei confronti della Fip centrale: non vogliamo essere la terra che cerca la deroghe ma la terra che prova a diventare un circuito virtuoso di crescita.
Il delta della Calabria può crescere tantissimo rispetto alle altre regioni.

Sarà nuovamente C Silver?

Abbiamo aperto le iscrizioni.
Il numero dovrebbe essere simile alla passata stagione.

Il sogno per il basket di Calabria quale potrebbe essere?

Più che sogno sono sicuro che tutto questo può diventare realtà: servono obiettivi chiari.
Se tutta l'attività non è finalizzata verso la chiarezza non si potrà operare positivamente: istruttori adeguati, strutture adeguate e società responsabili.

          Tecnologia viabilizou o resgate dos 12 garotos tailandeses presos em caverna      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Durante esta terça-feira (10), chegaram ao fim as operações de resgate dos 12 garotos, integrantes do time de futebol mirim Wild Boars, que estavam presos no complexo de cavernas Tham Luang Nang Non, no norte da Tailândia, com o treinador deles há 18 dias. A frota real tailandesa, conhecida como Thai navy Seals, responsável pela libertação do time, afirmou que todos os 13 cativos foram retirados do local com sucesso e estão em razoável estado de saúde, fora de perigo de morte ou sequelas mais severas após o tempo de enclausuramento.

Os quatro garotos e o técnico, resgatados na manhã desta terça-feira (10), foram levados de helicóptero para o hospital Prachanukroh, na cidade mais próxima, Chiang Rai, onde os outros oito meninos, resgatados na segunda-feira (9) e no domingo (8), já estavam sob observação clínica.

Tecnologia no resgate

Devido à dificuldade de acesso ao local onde o grupo se encontrava, muitas soluções tecnológicas foram usadas. Também foram formadas parcerias com militares estadunidenses, mergulhadores britânicos especializados em ações em cavernas, além de trabalhadores de diversas nações, incluindo Austrália, Japão, China, Mianmar e Laos. Eles foram responsáveis por levar suprimentos de saúde e comida aos cativos, além de instalar tubos de ar para levar oxigênio até onde o grupo estava localizado, após o uso de drones equipados com câmeras termais com zoom óptico capaz de aumentar as imagens 30 vezes ajudarem no mapeamento 3D do complexo de cavernas para encontrar o grupo.

Segundo Thana Slanvetpan, um dos responsáveis pelo resgate, ninguém sabia muito bem o que seria necessário para completar o salvamento, então toda tecnologia disponível era bem vinda. "A vantagem de usar o drone é que simplifica as buscas. As cavernas possuem cerca de 100 pontos de acesso possíveis. Ao invés de explorar cada local, nós usamos o drone", disse ele.

Além disso, foram utilizados rádios portáteis capazes de manter a comunicação mesmo em longas distâncias, ainda que a região não ofertasse infraestrutura de comunicações para as equipes. A Maxtech Networks emprestou equipamentos de rádio para as operações e seu CEO, Uzi Hanuni, afirmou: "Rádios comuns falham nesse complexo". A companhia israelense cedeu 17 rádios e um de seus engenheiros para as buscas. Os dispositivos especiais foram fabricados pela Entel, do Reino Unido, e contavam com softwares desenvolvidos pela Maxtech capazes de comunicação num raio de até três quilômetros sem a dependência de torres de rádio ou qualquer outra estrutura física para enviar os sinais. "Você não precisa pré-programar os rádios, basta entrar com eles, onde quiser e eles funcionam automaticamente", declarou Hanuni.

Entretanto, a equipe de mergulhadores britânicos utilizou uma tecnologia bem mais antiga para a comunicação — os HeyPhones, desenvolvidos há quase duas décadas. O sistema de comunicação utilizado pelos mergulhadores usou frequências ultrabaixas para permitir o envio de mensagens através de centenas de metros de rochas e água.

Elon Musk não salvou o dia

O multibilionário da SpaceX, The Boring Company e Tesla ofereceu recursos para que os meninos pudessem ser resgatados, chegando a desenvolver um mini-submarino para adentrar na caverna. Entretanto, Narongsak Osatanakorn, responsável pela operação, educadamente agradeceu e recusou a ajuda, dizendo que "embora seu equipamento seja tecnologicamente sofisticado, ele não se adequa à nossa missão de entrar na caverna". Quando a BBC News publicou no Twitter sobre a recusa de Osatanakorn, foi respondida por Musk com algumas correções, além de uma captura de tela mostrando mensagens de e-mail trocadas entre empresário e Richard Stanton, co-líder das operações de resgate, a quem Musk chamou intimamente de Dick, como pode ser visto na reprodução abaixo:

Apesar de não ter salvado o dia, Musk demonstrou felicidade no Twitter após o resgate do time:
