          Menacide - Drugz Drugz Drugz (Slowed & Chopped) (Placenta Recordings #449 - 2018)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Menacide "Drugz Drugz Drugz" slowed and chopped by McNastee! Released as a limited edition sealed CD of 50 copies via Placenta Recordings and 13 Percent! Pick up a copy while supplies last, another piece to the puzzle for the true Menacide collector. Featuring guest appearances from Realistikk, Q Strange, and Majik Duce. 


Menacide is a veteran of the “Gun Rule” (Grand Rapids, MI) Hip Hop scene with several credible accomplishments attached to his name. He’s released over a dozen albums, has sat in the same studio as Eminem (while working with Proof Of D12), and paid enough real dues to cover the work ethic of a dozen indie artists combined. In 2001, his “In My World” E.P. garnered so much attention from local media, that the Associated Press picked up the story and blasted it across the national news wire. Cutting his teeth by pounding out show after show locally, he also went on to be featured on the syndicated Michigan Radio Network (MRN) for an almost unheard of nationwide promo-cast. 

2003’s “Knuckle Up” LP introduced bored underground fans to a world of revised hardcore rap, while showcasing Menacide’s ability to spin new life into angry anthems. In 2005, his “Drugz” LP stole the number one selling spot at several online media outlets, and went on to become a fan-favorite with such bangers as “Braggin’ Rightz”, the proud-to-be-below-radar anthem, “Underground King”, and “Drugz” (Feat. Proof Of D12) (RIP). “I’m grateful for having had the opportunity to work with him (Proof) for the title track on that record. He lit a fire under my ass that’s been burning ever since”, he affirms. It was during this studio session in Detroit where he was invited to meet 8 Mile famed Eminem, whom he humbly acknowledges as the best thing to ever happen to the relevance of Michigan Hip Hop. 

A proponent of unique self-marketing, Menacide’s releases have been attached to some rather creative promo campaigns, including a contest for buyers of his “Drugz LP”, who were entered into a drawing to win a real body bag stuffed with CD’s, posters, and other merch goodies. Following with the album’s “paraphernalia” theme, the CD came packaged in a genuine police-evidence bag, along with a bonus poster and bandanna. 

In September of 2007, bundled with a full, two-hour documentary DVD entitled “Music Iz Life”, Menacide’s much-anticipated “Street Symphony” CD hit stores nationwide (via LRD/Oarfin/Koch). The album boasted an impressive lineup, including special guest appearances from Cypress Hill, Insane Poetry, and Flint, Michigan’s gold-selling The Dayton Family. His music has also been licensed for commercial DVD markets, such as “Turnagain 4” (a snow-sports series) and “New Jack Hardcore” (a brutal wrestling documentary). 

Also a proud contributor to the ever-growing phenomenon known as “The Wicked Underground”, Menacide has worked with some of Horrorcore’s greatest talents, including Detroit’s King Gordy, Prozak & Madness (of Saginaw’s Bedlam), Q Strange, and many more. In 2006 he performed via honorary invitation at Prozak’s annual “Wickedstock” festival alongside Tech N9ne, Project: Deadman, & pioneering Detroit artist The R.O.C. Menacide is also the creator of the internet-famed “Devil’z Nite” compilation series, which he ran consecutively for six years to help push talented artists to the forefront of the exposure pool. In 2005 he was nominated for and won the “Best Rapper” award by way of fan votes at TCN, a network within the genre.

          Tesla builds first factory outside United States in Shanghai      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

A looming trade war with China hasn't slowed down Elon Musk or his beloved brainchild Tesla.

Right after the car company was forced to raise the prices of its cars by at least $20,000 each due to China's increased import tariffs on American-made cars, Tesla announced it would open its first international factory in Shanghai.

This will ultimately allow the car manufacturer to circumvent the newly imposed taxes once completed.

Musk was in Shanghai on Tuesday attending a government event — although he did not previously disclose why he was there. Now, it's safe to say that at least part of the reason was that he was announcing this new factory. Read more...

Redes sociais adotam medidas para combater fake news nas eleições
A ascensão das chamadas notícias falsas (fake news, no termo em inglês) a um objeto de preocupação em todo o mundo colocou no centro da discussão o papel de redes sociais como Facebook, Google, YouTube, Twitter e WhatsApp. Se por um lado é reconhecido que o fenômeno da desinformação é antigo, por outro lado é consenso entre pesquisadores, autoridades e empresas que a diferença no cenário atual de divulgação de conteúdos falsos está no alcance e na velocidade permitidos pelo compartilhamento de mensagens nesses ambientes. Para tentar diminuir os questionamentos e o dano à imagem, diversas redes sociais vêm anunciando medidas para tentar combater a circulação das notícias falsas.

As redes sociais são terreno fértil para a difusão de notícias falsas por diferentes motivos. Alguns criadores desses conteúdos buscam divulgar uma ideia ou atacar uma pessoa, partido ou instituição. Outros têm motivação econômica, uma vez que a grande circulação de uma publicação gera interações, o que pode se traduzir em dinheiro a partir da lógica de veiculação de anúncios nessas plataformas. Foi o caso, por exemplo, de jovens da Macedônia que criaram perfis para difundir notícias falsas nas eleições dos Estados Unidos em 2016 como fonte de renda.

Essas possibilidades geraram intensos questionamentos. Nos Estados Unidos, o Facebook virou objeto de investigação do Congresso sobre uma possível influência de organizações russas nas eleições de 2016. O presidente da empresa, Mark Zuckerberg, teve de ir ao Congresso prestar explicações também sobre o escândalo de vazamento de dados de 87 milhões de usuários envolvendo a empresa de marketing eleitoral Cambridge Analytica. A companhia foi questionada ainda por autoridades de outros países, inclusive brasileiras, sobre o caso.

Na Índia, o WhatsApp, aplicativo de propriedade do Facebook, virou assunto de preocupação nacional nas últimas semanas depois de uma série de assassinatos e linchamentos a partir de informações falsas divulgadas na rede social.

O Google sofreu críticas por apresentar nos resultados de busca informações falsas, tanto sobre as eleições dos EUA quanto sobre fatos históricos, como o Holocausto.

Rede social mais criticada, o Facebook inicialmente rebateu as acusações relativas ao papel nas eleições dos EUA, mas depois do pleito passou a anunciar um conjunto de medidas para reduzir a circulação dessas mensagens na sua plataforma. A principal delas foi a realização de um acordo com agências de checagem para averiguar a veracidade de publicações. No Brasil, a parceria envolve as agências Lupa, Aos Fatos e France Press. “Esse mecanismo permitiu cortar em até 80% a distribuição orgânica de notícias consideradas falsas por agências de verificação parceiras nos Estados Unidos, onde a ferramenta já está funcionando há algum tempo”, relatou a empresa em nota divulgada em 10 de maio.

Um casal foi encontrado morto dentro de um motel no bairro do Costa Azul, em Salvador, na manhã deste domingo (8). O Departamento de Homicídios e Proteção à Pessoa (DHPP) confirmou o crime e está à frente das investigações.

A Polícia Civil informou que as vítimas são dois idosos: Alfons Ludwig Boness, de 72 anos, e Sônia Souza Soares, de 74. Eles foram achados com marcas de ferimentos causados por objeto cortante.

De acordo com a Secretaria de Segurança Pública da Bahia (SSP-BA), informações preliminares apontam que a mulher teria matado o companheiro dentro do quarto com diversas facadas e depois teria se matado com a mesma arma do crime. Não há mais detalhes sobre as circunstâncias do caso.
Enterro da vítima será no cemitério do Campo Santo, em Salvador (Foto: Reprodução/Facebook)
Segundo informações de testemunhas, o casal teria chegado ao motel por volta das 16h de sábado (7). De acordo com a SSP, eles eram solteiros e mantinham um relacionamento. A SSP ainda disse que o casal era frequentador do motel.

No início da manhã deste domingo, amigos da vítima chegaram a compartilhar informações sobre um suposto sumiço de Alfons Boness, que não teria voltado para casa desde sábado. Os corpos do casal foram encontrados na manhã deste domingo e levados para o Instituto Médico Legal (IML) de Salvador.

O enterro de Alfons Ludwig Boness será realizado no cemitério do Campo Santo, no bairro da Federação, às 16h, conforme postagem do filho da vítima nas redes sociais. Não há informações sobre o sepultamento de Sônia Soares.

O G1 entrou em contato com a assessoria da Polícia Militar, que informou que não atendeu o caso. Equipes do DHPP investigam a motivação do crime.

Depois de três dias de resgate, todos foram retirados da caverna em uma operação feita com total sucesso. A ação precisou ser feita por etapas por conta das dificuldades do percurso de ida e volta, em região de terreno muito acidentado, com vários trechos inundados e com visibilidade nula em vários pontos. Quatro meninos foram resgatados no domingo (8/7), outros quatro na segunda-feira (9/7) e os demais saíram hoje.

Segundo a equipe médica que monitora o grupo, dois dos resgatados precisaram passar por tratamento com antibióticos porque apresentam sintomas de pneumonia. A situação deles ainda é considerada delicada por conta dos vários dias que passaram sem comida e com frio, em uma gruta úmida, com redução de oxigênio e quase sem água potável. Segundo o hospital Chiang Rai, que fica a 70km do local do resgate das crianças, todos têm passado bem.

Os oito primeiros a serem resgatados estão sem febre, segundo declaração do chefe do Ministério da Saúde Pública, Jesada Chokedamrongsuk, que deu um primeiro balanço mais detalhado do estado de saúde dos jovens. Segundo ele, todos passaram por exames de sangue e radiológicos. Os resultados devem ser conhecidos em poucos dias.

Eles receberam vacinas contra tétano e raiva, mesmo que o risco de presença de morcegos no local onde estavam seja baixo. Todos estão andando, falando e se alimentando. As refeições têm sido basicamente um caldo com arroz em sua composição, mas segundo o hospital, alguns deles pediram para comer pão e chocolate. Comidas picantes, tradicionais na Tailândia, ainda estão descartadas, porque o estômago deles ainda está fragilizado pela deficiência de alimentação que tiveram nos últimos dias.

Todos apresentam boa saúde mental

Uma das grandes preocupações após a retirada do grupo da caverna era como eles iriam reagir psicologicamente. Especialistas alertaram para algumas consequências a longo prazo do trauma vivido pelos meninos e o treinador, e que precisariam de acompanhamento especializado. No entanto, a equipe médica que cuida dos Javalis Selvagens garantiu que todos apresentam boa saúde mental

O uso de óculos de sol é necessário para que eles possam se acostumar progressivamente à luz do dia. Problemas oculares são os mais recorrentes aos que passam por um longo período sob a terra, bem como problemas pulmonares. Parte dos Javalis Selvagens já passou por exames com um oftalmologista, que descartou complicações oculares.

A previsão é de que eles fiquem ao menos uma semana em constante observação, para avaliar possíveis infecções. Novos exames devem ser realizados depois disso e, se estiverem bem de saúde, vão finalmente ter autorização para se aproximar dos pais. Os familiares que puderem vê-los terão que usar roupas de proteção e ficarão a uma distância de dois metros, aproximadamente, das camas deles.  Segundo o médico Tosthep Bunthong, em coletiva de imprensa, os pais do primeiro grupo retirado puderam vê-los pelo vidro e conversar a distância.

O presidente da Fifa, Gianni Infantino, havia convidado os meninos para assistir a final da Copa, em uma carta divulgada no dia 6 de julho. No entanto, segundo um funcionário do ministério da Saúde da Tailândia, os meninos não poderão viajar, já que devem permanecer no hospital em quarentena. "É provável que assistam pela televisão", completou durante a entrevista no hospital de Chiang Rai.

Corrida contra o tempo e a chuva

Os meninos e o treinador passaram 18 dias em uma profunda caverna ao Norte da Tailândia. A Marinha Tailandesa comunicou pelo Facebook o fim do resgate, acrescentando que todos os "javalis estavam salvos". O último a ser resgatado foi o técnico Ekkapol Chantawong, de 25 anos. Momentos depois, as equipes de mergulhadores dos SEALs - incluindo um médico - que estavam com o grupo na caverna também retornaram.

Foi uma corrida contra o tempo por conta dos níveis baixos de oxigênio no interior da caverna e, principalmente, por conta das chuvas torrenciais que atingem o país. O trabalho de resgate foi conduzido com maestria por uma equipe de mergulhadores especializados e auxiliados por membros de elite da marinha tailandesa.

A grande preocupação era com o percurso entre túneis inundados e estreitos, em um caminho longo e cheio de obstáculos mesmo para mergulhadores experientes. As dificuldades só aumentavam porque, além de serem inexperientes em mergulho, alguns meninos não sabiam nadar. Mas todos precisaram passar por um rápido treinamento de mergulho com os socorristas, que mostraram a eles como usar a máscara e respirar debaixo da água através de um tanque de oxigênio.

Os socorristas temiam que eles pudessem ter um ataque de pânico durante a travessia, mesmo que escoltados por um mergulhador. Segundo jornais internacionais, os jovens tomaram ansiolíticos antes de entrar na água, para ficarem calmos no percurso para sair da caverna. Na sexta-feira passada, o ex-sargento da reserva Saman Kunan, de 38 anos, morreu após perder a consciência por falta de ar em uma área profunda da caverna, o que havia ampliado as preocupações das autoridades sobre os perigos da rota de fuga.

          Green Day's "American Idiot" Soaring Up UK Charts in Anticipation of Trump Visit      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
by Sean Nelson

This album is nearly 14 years old, the same age as its ideal listenership
This album is nearly 14 years old, the same age as its ideal listenership

One good thing about the United Kingdom, aside from its surprisingly strong showing at this year's World Cup, is that they still care about pop charts there. Every so often, a percentage of the British population bands together to ensure that some album or song gets to number one by a particular date. The last one I remember was in 2008, when a campaign to make a cover of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" number one the week of Christmas resulted in three versions of the song landing in the top 40 (including the numbers one and two slots).

The latest iteration of this culture jamming impulse has a slightly more caustic aim. A Facebook group is campaigning to make Green Day's 2014 single "American Idiot" number one in the charts during the time when US President Donald Trump is in the country for a "working visit." According to CNN, the effort is working, and it's only one of several art-based anti-Trump protests gaining momentum.

The nearly 14-year-old song is currently sitting at number 18 with just over a week to go. And here I thought life under George W. Bush was the only condition stultifying enough to make that song and album feel like bold political gestures...

Umtiti's header takes France to WC final


DF-Xinhua Report

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

DF-Xinhua Report

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

All 12 boys, coach rescued from flooded cave in Thailand

DF-Xinhua Report

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Flat fire kills 5 in southwest France

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

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

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

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

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

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

Real Madrid confirm Ronaldo move to Juventus


DF-Xinhua Report

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Convicted man turns to police

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

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

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

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

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

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

யாழ்ப்பாணம் குறூப் நிருபர்

மாகாண அமைச்சரை நியமிக்கும் அல்லது நீக்கும் அதிகாரம் மாகாண முதலமைச்சருக்கு உள்ளதா இல்லையா என்பதை உச்சநீதிமன்றமே தீர்மானிக்க வேண்டும் என வடமாகாண முதலமைச்சர் சீ.வி.விக்னேஸ்வரன் தெரிவித்தார். நேரடியாக மத்திய அரசு மாகாண அமைச்சர்களை நியமிக்கும் ஒற்றையாட்சியையும், ஆளுநரின் சர்வாதிகாரத்தையும் தான் எம்மவர்கள் எதிர்பார்க்கின்றனரா என்றும் அவர் மாகாணசபையில் கேள்வியெழுப்பினார்

டெனீஸ்வரன் பதவி விலக்கப்படவில்லையென மேன்முறையீட்டு நீதிமன்றம் தீர்ப்பு வழங்கியிருந்தது. இதற்கு எதிராக கடந்த சில நாட்களுக்கு முன்னர் வடமாகாண முதலமைச்சர் சார்பில் உச்சநீதிமன்றத்தில் மேன்முறையீட்டு மனுவொன்று தாக்கல் செய்யப்பட்டது. இந்த நிலையில் மேன்முறையீட்டு நீதிமன்றத் தீர்ப்புத் தொடர்பாக நேற்று நடைபெற்ற மாகாணசபை அமர்வில் முதலமைச்சர் விளக்கமளித்தார். அதன்போதே மேற்கண்ட விடயங்களை அவர் சுட்டிக்காட்டினார்.

தொடர்ந்தும் உரையாற்றிய அவர்,

உச்ச நீதிமன்றத்தின் முன் மேன்முறையீட்டுக்கு உட்படுத்தப்பட்டிருக்கும் இந்தத் தீர்மானத்தில் மேன்முறையீட்டு நீதிமன்றம் எந்த ஒரு மாகாண முதலமைச்சர் தானும் தமது அமைச்சர் குழாமின் அமைச்சர் ஒருவரை நியமிக்கவோ, பதவி இறக்கவோ முடியாது என்ற கருத்தை வெளிப்படுத்தியுள்ளது.

அந்த அதிகாரம் ஆளுநருக்கே உண்டு எனக் கூறி டெனீஸ்வரனின் பதவி இறக்கத்தை ஆளுநர் உத்தியோகபூர்வமாக வர்த்தமானியில் பிரசுரிக்காத காரணத்தினாலோ என்னவோ டெனீஸ்வரன் தொடர்ந்து பதவியில் இருக்கின்றார் என்று தீர்மானித்துள்ளார்கள்.

ஆனால் இத்தீர்மானம் குழப்பத்தை விளைவித்துள்ளது. டெனீஸ்வரனையும் சேர்த்தால் அமைச்சர்களின் எண்ணிக்கை ஆறாக மாறும். இது சட்டத்திற்குப் புறம்பானது. ஐந்திலும் விட அதிகமான அமைச்சர்கள் இருந்தால் அது அரசியல் அரசியலமைப்புக்கு எதிராக அமையும் என்பதுடன், சட்டவலுவற்றதாக அமையும். அதனால் அமைச்சர் குழாமின் செயற்பாடுகள் சட்டபூர்வமற்றதாய் அமைவன. அரசியல் யாப்பின் ஏற்பாடுகளுக்கு முரணாக செயற்படுவது பாரிய விளைவுகளை ஏற்படுத்தும். ஆகவே அரசியல் யாப்பின் ஏற்பாடுகளுக்கு முரணாக நடந்து கொள்ள நாங்கள் தயாரில்லை.

இவ்வாறான சந்தர்ப்பங்களில் அரசியல் யாப்பின் ஏற்பாடுகளை மீற முடியாது. ஆகவே தான் நாங்கள் இதுபற்றிய உச்ச நீதிமன்ற தீர்மானத்தை எதிர்பார்த்து நிற்கின்றோம்.

இந்த வழக்கில் முக்கியமான சட்டப் பிரச்சினைகளுக்கு உச்ச நீதிமன்ற நீதியரசர்களே முடிவுகளை எடுக்க முடியும்.

எமது நிலைப்பாடு மாகாண அமைச்சர் குழாமில் உள்ள அமைச்சர்களை நியமிக்கும் மற்றும் பதவி இறக்குவதைத் தீர்மானிப்பது அந்தந்த மாகாணங்களின் முதலமைச்சர்களையே சார்ந்ததாகும் என்பதேயாகும்.

அரசியல் யாப்பின் 154 (5)ன் உறுப்புரையின் ஏற்பாடுகளுக்கு அமைய ஆளுநர் தானாக அமைச்சர் ஒருவரை நியமிக்க முடியாது. முதலமைச்சரின் சிபார்சின் பெயராலேயே அவர் எவரையாவது அமைச்சராக நியமிக்க முடியும். இது சம்பந்தமாகத் தானாக அவர் இயங்க முடியாது.

தற்போதுள்ள நிலையில் ஐந்துக்கு மேற்பட்ட அமைச்சர்கள் பதவி வகித்தால் அது சட்டத்திற்குப் புறம்பாகும். எமது நடவடிக்கைகள் சட்ட வலுவற்றதாக மாறிவிடுவன. ஆகவே தான் நாங்கள் உச்ச நீதிமன்ற தீர்மானத்தை எதிர்பார்த்துள்ளோம்.

மேன்முறையீட்டு நீதிமன்றத் தீர்மானப்படி முதலமைச்சர், அமைச்சர் ஒருவரை நியமிக்கவோ பதவி இறக்கவோ முடியாது.

ஆகவே தற்போது எந்த ஒரு அமைச்சரையும் பதவி இறக்க என்னால் முடியாது. முன்னர் எனது சிபார்சுக்கு அமைய தொடர் நடவடிக்கை எடுக்கவேண்டிய பொறுப்பு ஆளுநருக்கிருந்தது. முதலமைச்சர் என்ற கடமையில் இருந்து நான் தவறவில்லை. என் வரையறைக்குள் இருந்து எடுக்கவேண்டிய நடவடிக்கைகளை நான் எடுத்துள்ளேன். வர்த்தமானிப் பிரசுரங்கள் போன்றவை எனது வரையறைக்கு அப்பாற்பட்டன.

ஆளுநருக்கு அமைச்சர்களை நியமிக்கும் அதிகாரம் இருக்கின்றதென்றால் அதிகாரப்பகிர்வுக்கு என்ன நடந்தது என்ற கேள்வி எழும். நேரடியாக மத்திய அரசு மாகாண அமைச்சர்களை நியமித்து ஒற்றையாட்சியை நடத்த முடியுமென்றாகின்றது. இவ்வாறான ஒற்றையாட்சியையும் ஆளுநரின் சர்வாதிகாரத்தையும்தான் எம்மவர்கள் எதிர்பார்க்கின்றனர்.

தெற்கில் உள்ள மாகாண சபைகளையும் இவ்வாறான தீர்மானங்கள் பாதிக்கின்றன. ஆகவே அதிகாரப் பரவலாக்கம் 13ஆவது அரசியலமைப்புத் திருத்தத்தின் கீழ் நடைமுறைப்படுத்தப்பட்டதா இல்லையா என்பதை உச்ச நீதிமன்றமே தீர்மானிக்க வேண்டும்.

ஒரு சில நாட்களுள் உச்ச நீதிமன்றம் எமது மேன்முறையீட்டின் காரணமாகப் பூர்வாங்கத் தீர்மானம் ஒன்றை எடுக்க வேண்டியிருக்கும் என்றும் அவர் மேலும் தெரிவித்தார்.

          Sophie Gradon's Boyfriend Aaron Armstrong Dead 3 Weeks After Love Island Star's Passing      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Tragedy has hit the Love Island family again.

Almost three weeks after TV star Sophie Gradon passed away at the age of 32, multiple outlets report that her boyfriend Aaron Armstrong has died.

A Northumbria Police spokesperson confirmed to E! News that authorities received a report from the ambulance service that a 25-year-old man had been found deceased at a property on Furnace Road in Bebside, Blyth.

"There is not believed to be any third party involvement and a report will now be prepared for the coroner," police shared with us.

Soon after the news broke, several cast members reacted to the news on social media.

Former Love Island star Katie Salmon wrote on Twitter, "Aaron. I hope you have reunited with your love sophie. And I truly hope you fly high together. Thinking of his family and friends."

Rykard Jenkins added, "So sad to now hear about Aaron's passing. May you both rest in paradise."

Back on June 20, Sophie was found deceased at a property in Medburn, Ponteland. Soon after, her boyfriend would post a tribute on his Facebook page.

"I will never forget that smile," Aaron wrote. "I love you so much baby. Your my world forever ever and always."

And earlier this month, Aaron expressed how much he missed his girlfriend before she was laid to rest in a private family service on July 5. "So I get into bed and all I can smell is Sophie on her side of the bed," he wrote. "I love you so much Sophie I will keep fighting for you."

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Sophie and Aaron's family during this difficult time.

          Kai Ting Chuang Defeats Yodcherry Sityodting to Win One Super Series Kickboxing Atomweight World Championship      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Wazzup Pilipinas!

The largest global sports media property in Asian history, ONE Championship™ (ONE), made a triumphant return to Guangzhou last Saturday night, as the biggest and brightest stars in martial arts came out to showcase their incredible skills. The Guangzhou Tianhe Gymnasium played host to ONE: BATTLE FOR THE HEAVENS and electrified the crowd with world-class martial arts action. In the main event, “Killer Bee” Kai Ting Chuang of Chinese Taipei captured the inaugural ONE Super Series Kickboxing Atomweight World Championship with a unanimous decision victory over Yodcherry Sityodtong of Thailand.

In the main event of the evening, 23-year-old “Killer Bee” Kai Ting Chuang of Chinese Taipei put on the performance of a lifetime, upsetting heavy favorite Yodcherry Sityodtong of Thailand in a five-round ONE Super Series Kickboxing title tilt. The three-time WAKO Kickboxing Champion employed a terrific game plan, avoiding Yodcherry’s powerful right hand and roundhouse kicks while countering with impeccable boxing combinations for five whole rounds. In the end, all three judges scored the bout in favor of Chuang to win by unanimous decision, awarding her the inaugural ONE Super Series Kickboxing Atomweight World Championship.

Kai Ting Chuang, ONE Super Series Kickboxing Atomweight World Champion, stated: “I went over this match with my coaches, and we came up with a great game plan which worked out perfectly. Thank you to all the fans who supported me, and especially my team who helped me in preparing for this match.”

In the co-main event of the evening, Filipino-Australian dynamo Reece “Lighting” McLaren made his case for a shot at the ONE Flyweight World Championship with resounding clarity, edging out Japanese veteran Tatsumitsu Wada by way of split decision. McLaren flaunted his fluid striking, repeatedly hammering Wada with stinging punches and lashing leg kicks. Although Wada posed problems on the mat in the opening moments of the bantamweight contest, McLaren’s impeccable grappling was able to pull out all the stops in the last two rounds of the bout, wearing out the Japanese stalwart with powerful takedowns and submission attempts. In the end, McLaren earned two of the three judges’ nods to have his hand raised by split decision.

Moroccan kickboxer Ibrahim El Bouni turned in a stirring performance in his ONE Super Series debut, attaining a first-round knockout win over Australia’s Andre “The Giant” Meunier. El Bouni patiently waited for the right moment to pounce on his hard-hitting counterpart. When he saw a good opening to strike, El Bouni dropped Meunier to the canvas with a thunderous hook. Although Meunier was able to beat the count of ten, El Bouni knew that the finish was within his reach, prompting him to produce another huge knockdown that put his Australian opponent on the mat for good. His stellar conquest of Meunier earned him the GoDaddy Knockout of the Night.

In a clash of promotional newcomers, Chinese ace Fu Chang Xin emerged triumphant, torching Rustem Yensebayev of Kazakhstan with a full display of his well-rounded martial arts skill set. Showcasing his versatility in his maiden assignment as a ONE Athlete, Fu flustered Yensebayev with pinpoint striking before he vindictively took matters to the ground. On the mat, Fu ferociously secured the finish, blasting his Kazakh foe with a relentless barrage of heavy blows that forced referee Yuji Shimada to intervene and call a halt to the contest.

In a ONE Super Series Muay Thai bantamweight bout, Saemapetch of the world-renowned Fairtex gym in Pattaya, Thailand put on an incredible striking showcase, dominating opponent Deividas Danyla of Lithuania over the course of three whole rounds. Operating behind the southpaw stance, Saemapetch cracked Danyla with whipping left roundhouse kicks and slashing left elbows throughout the duration of the bout. In the end, all three judges scored the bout in favor of Saemapetch to win by unanimous decision.

After tasting his first setback in ONE Championship last March, Zhao Zhi Kang of China redeemed himself by defeating compatriot and promotional debutant Ma Xu Dong. Although he went through a rough start at the hands of Ma, Zhao clung onto his submission wizardry, which paid dividends in the third and final round. Zhao put Ma to sleep with a tight guillotine choke to earn the victory.

Former two-time Muay Thai world champion and ONE World Title Challenger Istela Nunes of Brazil made a successful return to ONE Championship after more than a year away from competition, defeating the highly-regarded Gina “Conviction” Iniong of the Philippines. The 25-year-old Brazilian utilized her length and size advantage to keep Iniong out of range for the majority of the contest, and the Team Lakay veteran had difficulty closing the distance. In the end, all three judges saw the bout in favor of Nunes to win by unanimous decision.

25-year-old Shuya “Stealth” Kamikubo of Japan made a successful ONE Championship debut, overpowering martial arts veteran “The Terminator” Sunoto of Indonesia with a masterful grappling performance. After softening up Sunoto with ground-and-pound for the majority of the contest, Kamikubo put the finishing touches in the second round, pouncing on Sunoto with punches from top to win by technical knockout.

22-year-old Peng Xue Wen of China made quick and easy work of former two-time SEA Games Boxing Bronze Medalist Eddey “The Clown” Kalai of Indonesia, winning via first-round technical knockout. After trading kicks at the center of the ONE Championship ring, the two began to trade punches. Although he was swapping hard blows with a highly-decorated boxer, it did not deter Peng, who caught Kalai with an overhand right that dropped the Indonesian instantly. Follow-up punches on the ground ended matters just under a minute into the contest, earning Peng the stoppage victory.

Kicking off ONE: BATTLE FOR THE HEAVENS were strawweights Robin Catalan of the Philippines and Adrian Mattheis of Indonesia. After an impressive striking performance for two rounds, Catalan caught Mattheis with a heel hook midway through the second frame. With Mattheis in no position to escape, Catalan put the pressure on the submission and forced the tap.

Wazzup Pilipinas!

The largest global sports media property in Asian history, ONE Championship™ (ONE), recently held a Press Conference for ONE: KINGDOM OF HEROES in Bangkok, featuring participating athletes. The blockbuster event, which takes place 6 October at the Impact Arena in Bangkok, Thailand will host an incredible ensemble of world-class athletes. Photos of the press conference are available here.

Ticket information for ONE: KINGDOM OF HEROES is available at

In the main event, The Ring Magazine and reigning WBC Super Flyweight World Champion Srisaket Sor Rungvisai will defend his title against an opponent yet to be announced. Also in attendance were ONE athletes Shannon “OneShin” Wiratchai, Rika “Tinydoll” Ishige, Nong-O Gaiyanghadao, Yodsanklai IWE Fairtex, and Petchmorrakot Wor. Sangprapai.

Here’s what the athletes had to say ahead of ONE: KINGDOM OF HEROES:

Srisaket Sor Rungvisai:

“I always love to compete and showcase my skills at home in Thailand, so I am thankful for ONE Championship for giving me this opportunity. History will be made on October 6. I was lucky enough to witness a ONE Championship event earlier this year and I was absolutely blown away by the level of production, the action and excitement that transpired in the Impact Arena. It was an amazing show for sure, and now I can be a part of that. Boxing is my passion and now it’s going to be an important part of ONE Championship. I can’t wait to defend my WBC Worldtitle this October. I will be working very hard to be able to retain my title. This is a new challenge, and I love challenges. I’m looking forward to defend my title in front of my home fans at the amazing ONE championship event."

Shannon “OneShin” Wiratchai:

“As one of the top lightweights in the division, I feel very close to a title shot. I am working extremely hard to produce another stunning victory in my next bout, which will come against a legend in Shinya Aoki. It’s not going to be easy, and I will have to be in the best shape of my life to do it. But with hard work, we can achieve anything. I am not worried at all with his grappling, that’s a given. What I am focusing on is what I bring to the table, and before we hit the ground, we have to exchange with striking. I don’t want to make any predictions, but I know one thing is for sure. It’s going to be an exciting fight.”

Rika “Tinydoll” Ishige:

“I have been working very hard on improving my skills, especially in the striking department where I have a lot of work to do. But each day that goes by I become more and more confident in my skills. Working with the best martial arts athletes, training partners and coaches, I am blessed. I hope to be able to represent Thailand to the best of my ability in my next match. Fans can expect a brand new Rika Ishige when I step back into the cage.”

Nong-O Gaiyanghadao:

“When ONE Championship launched the ONE Super Series, a feeling of excitement quickly came over me. I was once again ready to showcase my skills and talent to the world. I look forward to competing against the absolute best the world of striking martial arts has to offer. After a great career in Muay Thai, I am moving on to bigger and greater challenges. The future is something that truly excites me and I crave the competition. My first experience in ONE Super Series was an unforgettable one. I look forward to performing in front of millions of people once again.”

Yodsanklai IWE Fairtex:

“They say I have done many things in the sport of Muay Thai, but I feel like I have much left to accomplish. I continue to work hard on my skills everyday. Joining ONE Super Series is an exciting new challenge for me and I feel renewed in my quest for greatness. Making my debut at the last event, it’s such an amazing experience and I can’t forget it. I want to get right back in there and do it all over again. I want to compete as many times as I can and make Thailand proud on the global stage of martial arts.”

Petchmorrakot Wor. Sangprapai:

“Seeing my peers in Muay Thai make their ONE Super Series debuts, it brings a sense of excitement to me. I am much more energized in training and I am working very hard so that when my time comes, I can also give a good performance. I can’t wait for October 6 and to be able to show the world that I still have a lot left in me. ONE Super Series also hosts the best in the world in striking, and I can’t wait to test my skills against them. This is a great new development in sports, and I want to prove that Thailand still has the best Muay Thai fighters and kickboxers.”

          Malaysia’s Shadow Cat Looks to Inspire More People Through Her Career      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Jihin “Shadow Cat” Radzuan might just be the next young superstar in ONE Championship as she had a ton of hype behind her coming into her promotional debut at ONE: VISIONS OF VICTORY last March.
The 19-year-old native of Johor Bahru, Malaysia lived up to the billing with a submission victory over India’s Puja Tomar in front of a raucous crowd in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
While Radzuan comes from a Muay Thai background, she was looking to show off her ground skills as she repeatedly looked to drag Tomar to the ground and test her submission defense.
Radzuan nearly locked up an armbar on the mat in the second frame, but the Indian competitor refused to give up, forcing Radzuan to transition into a triangle choke.
As much as Tomar tried to ride out the submission, there was no escape this time. The end came at 2:23 into the second round, giving Radzuan her first win on the global stage of ONE Championship.
“I couldn’t even describe my emotion and the feeling when my name was announced as the winner of the bout. As a young martial artist, I just showcased what I am capable of on the global stage. The whole world was watching, and it’s definitely a dream come true,” she recalled.
As a young, vibrant female mixed martial arts competitor, Radzuan is breaking the mold and giving women of all ages a legitimate sporting role model to look up to.
Living in a conservative Muslim country like Malaysia, many people in her homeland believe that what she is doing is un-Islamic, and she should be taking on more traditional activities such as cooking and domestic interests.
Inspired by Ann Osman’s advocacy to erase the negative perception of women’s participation in combat sports, Radzuan believes that religious consciousness from certain people should not stop female mixed martial artists from pursuing their dreams.
“Being a mixed martial artist and being a Muslim as well shouldn’t hinder what I want to do or with achieving my goals or my ambition. We don’t believe religion should stop us. Islam teaches us to work hard,” said Radzuan, who also works as veterinary nurse.
Over the past decade, women’s mixed martial arts rose from relative obscurity to noticeable heights that many could not fathom in such a short span of time.
The once male-dominated sport has been infiltrated by women equipped with equal prowess to engage in high-testosterone action, at times even with more gusto than their male counterparts.
After years of being told that they “just weren’t good enough” and that there “wasn’t enough girls to form a legitimate bracket”, women are finally gracing the biggest platform of the mixed martial arts world.
“Some people even say I should just stay at home or do another job, but I ignore this kind of people. This is my passion. I believe it’s great because we are making a difference, especially in Malaysia,” she expressed.
“Now I see women who are interested in martial arts for self-defense purposes. It’s a great start,” Radzuan added.
As she continues to open eyes and introduces legions of already passionate enthusiasts to the burgeoning realm of Asian mixed martial arts, Radzuan seeks to exemplify the utmost confidence of a woman in ONE Championship.
“I just hope to inspire other women or even boys and girls to do what they want to do. Whatever you set your mind to, you can achieve as long as you put in the commitment and work hard,” she stated.
On a quest for greatness and to deliver a show-stealing performance, Radzuan returns to action on Friday, 13 July as she squares off with Indonesia’s Priscilla Hertati Lumban Gaol at ONE: PURSUIT OF POWER, which takes place at the Axiata Arena in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Even though she is facing a more experienced competitor in her second ONE Championship outing, Radzuan is confident that she will walk away with her hand raised in triumph.
“I know she is a good fighter with a good background in martial arts. Plus, she is more experienced than me. But one important key to success is self-confidence. The trait has always been with me in this journey. I look at things optimistically,” she shared.
Radzuan stressed that she is proud to be among the youngest athletes representing Malaysia in ONE Championship.
“It’ll be just another day in the office for me. I’m super excited. I am definitely taking home the win in front of my hometown crowd,” she guaranteed.

ISLAMABAD: “Sassy is more than just a clothing label, from the way we market ourselves to our curation of our collection to how we work and collaborate with photographers and models, we aim to bring something different to the fashion industry in Pakistan,” says Sophiya Khan, the woman behind Sassy — one of the most buzzed-about labels to hit the high street market in Pakistan.
Born and raised in Karachi, Khan moved to Lahore, joining Lahore Grammar School, where her relationship with the world of fashion and visual communications was boosted.

          Патриоты пишут доносы на бары и рестораны, транслирующие Чемпионат мира      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

 В Украине Чемпионат мира по футболу спровоцировал волну доносов и жалоб от патриотов на рестораны и бары, которые транслировали матчи мундиаля.

Не в силах сдержать зрительские симпатии к стране, где проходит ЧМ, общественные активисты требуют наказать заведения, которые транслируют спортивные соревнования, «провоцирующие симпатии к России и ее символам». Так, жители Броваров Киевской области пожаловались на местный бар из-за трансляции футбольного матча Россия-Хорватия.

Одна из посетителей утверждает, что работники заведения умышленно делали громче звук в момент проигрывания гимна РФ. Об этом рассказала Марина Кочур на странице «Мои Бровары» в соцсети Facebook.

«Категорически не советую жителям Броваров посещать заведение Smoky Bar. Там очень любят Россию. Настолько, что включают погромче их гимн во время трансляции футбольного матча», ― возмущена патриотка, которая нашла поддержку единомышленников, которые предлагают сдавать болельщиков в СБУ или вообще расстреливать тех, кто слушает гимн России: «Пока грады и минометы не повалятся на тупую башку…»; «Понимаете, такое у нас общество, что для некоторых война и не начиналась...», «Не выжгли всех ватниковна майдане и в Одессе, вот и имеем»; «Диванным воинам поф*г куда ходить»; показывать футбол с мордора - дно, полное дно...».

Доносчица же рассказывает, что после ее жалоб, администратор только сделал громче звук - по просьбе гостей...

«И вообще, все перекрутили, будто мы не болеем за Хорватию .. Мы искренне болеем за Хорватию и ничего плохого не сделали», - уверяет «болельщица». Однако, не только посетители бара, вызвавшего негодование патриотки, но и рядовые жители Броваров не разделяют возмущения русофобки.

Они посчитали, что в гимне России во время трансляции матча в общественных заведениях нет ничего плохого. И посоветовали стукачке сидеть дома, а не раздавать советы куда можно, а куда нельзя ходить любителям футбола.

«Вы не советуете посещать этот бар потому, что вам там что-то не понравилось? От вас попахивает всемирным эгоизмом, советуйте своим родным, куда ходить и как ходить», ― написал Андрей Бодров. Также в комментариях высказалась и представительница бара, на который написала донос бдительная броварчанка. Администрация заведения отметила, что матч транслировался на государственном канале Украины. То есть этот матч разрешили показывать в нашей с вами стране. «Мы добавляем громкости каждый раз, когда идет трансляция матчей», ― написала Ольга Демченко. Также она заявила, что администратор добавил звука после просьбы посетителей. Однако, патриотка не успокоилась и написала, что бармен говорил о «великой и могучей России», а другие сотрудники бара просили его прекратить, потому что «набьют морду».

Invidia dell`italiano e involuzione sessuale ed estetica: 

una poco seria esposizione sui generi sessuali tedeschi e la storia


Attenzione: contiene 2 parolacce e un paio di battute e allusioni politicamente scorrette

Quando un ometto tedesco si immagina un italiano, nei suoi occhi si accende subito un`impercettibile scintilla d`invidia. Perche` l`italiano e`, per definizione teutonica, un macho, un vero duro. E` bello anche se non alto, gira spavaldo e abbronzato, con i capelli pieni di gelatina e il pelo nero sul petto. L’ uomo italico mangia anche tanti spaghetti che gli servono da carburante per gli innumervoli amplessi con le femmine, numerose e tutte ai suoi piedi.

Ah, povero, povero ometto tedesco, come vorrebbe essere un uomo italiano, invece no, niente e` piu` lontano dal suo essere. In Germania infatti gli uomini si aggirano con sguardi da teneri o isterici coniglietti spaventati, e i veri uomini, quelli coi pantaloni, il pelo sul petto, gli spaghetti e gli innumerevoli amplessi, quelli sono le donne tedesche, si, le donnone crucche. Le donne tedesche sanno fare tutto, da montare una ruota di scorta a costruire una baita in legno lappone, da cucire una sciarpa per giraffe a cucinare giapponese. Le vedi al mattino in biciletta sotto la pioggia scrosciante con due bambini impermeabilizzati, uno dietro e uno davanti del peso complessivo di 70 chili, piu` una cassa di birra in equilibrio sul manubrio e il polpaccio nudo e gonfio che trionfa come un trofeo sul pedalino.Che spettacolo.

Le donne vincono. Non c` e` piu` il cancelliere, ma la cancelliera Angela, e il sindaco di Berlino, la capitale del Reich, e ` dichiaratamente Omosessuale. Evviva, Berlino e` la capitale dei Gay, ci sono piu` Gay che etero maschi oramai ma e` meglio cosi`, visto il processo di degenerazione dell`eterosessuale maschio tedesco.

Eppure io mi ricordo di tempi migliori, forse neanche troppo lontani (anche se molti fingono che siano passati secoli,chissa` perche`), i tempi d`oro dell`uomo tedesco: ah, come era bello!! Ariano, virile ginnico biondo stallone, pronto a conquistare il mondo diffondendo la sua razza a suon di mani tese verso l`alto e strillacci.

Che vi e` successo, bei barbaroni biondi, ohime`? Tutta colpa di quel bassettino austriaco invidioso della vostra bellezza chiamato Adolfo. Si sa che i belloni sono stupidi.

Cosi` Adolfo, isterico ma furbo,se ne e` arrivato e ha imbambolato i bamboloni e spediti al macello, come tenenti, soldati, Artiglieri, bombardieri. E cosi` mentre i belloni facevano la guerra, le donne tedesche imparavano a fare tutto da sole e dovevano, ecco la prima parolaccia, tirare fuori i coglioni.E cosi` ora capite la storia. I bamboloni son tornati dalla guerra sciancati, mutilati e depressi e traumatizzati. Non solo. Con il grande senso di colpa di avere combattuto dalla parte sbagliata, quella perdente, e quella degli stronzi (un`altra parolaccia, per dindirindina, ma in questo caso ci sta proprio).

E mentre le donne a Berlino frugavano tra le macerie e ricostruivano la citta`, gli uomini tedeschi si son beccati i complessi di inferiorita` statosferici, e sono diventati quello che sono oggi, fondamentalmente bevitori di birra.

E ora c` e` solo da sperare che la cancelliera spedisca le donne in qualche guerra falsa ( esistono guerre giuste?mm) cosi` gli uomini impareranno di nuovo a fare tutto da soli e tireranno di nuovo fuori i muscolazzi davanti alle amazzoni debilitate da nuovi sensi di colpa. Ma a che pro?

E poi, come sappiamo, la storia non si ripete mai uguale.

In Italia non tornerebbe mai per esempio una dittatura simile a quella mussoliniana, con un omettino megalomane che si prende tutto il potere.

          The round the world life of a Clipper Race Crew Supporter       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache

With arrivals into Derry-Londonderry this week it only seems fitting that our latest ‘Meet the Race Crew Supporter’ is Patrick Merrick. Patrick’s wife, Mary Frawley, is a ‘round the worlder’ crew member on and is currently racing the final miles towards her home Stopover as the couple live in Tipperary.

Whilst Dairy farmer Patrick admits that he is neither a sailor nor an adventurer, he did not want this to stand in the way of Mary and her ambition.

When Mary had first received the Clipper Race brochures she had broached the subject of them doing it together – something Patrick said no to but quickly following this with ‘you go for it!’.

Until Mary signed up, Patrick hadn’t heard much about the Clipper Race but is now a fully immersed in the Clipper Race Crew Supporter family which is run by Ruth Charles, Race Crew Supporter Coordinator.

Running a dairy farm is a full-on business and the couple had only holidayed every two years, but Mary’s round the world adventure has meant new travel experiences for both of them. Originally Patrick had pencilled in a few Stopovers to welcome and cheer Mary on. However, the Supporter bug soon took hold and his travel list soon had Liverpool, Uruguay, Cape Town, all three Australian Stopovers, Seattle, New York and of course Derry-Londonderry.

It’s a hard call but Patrick says that Uruguay has been his favourite Stopover so far. He says: “I think it’s my favourite because it was the first. I was going for Mary and to be part of the race but at that point I didn’t know anyone. But I met so many fellow Supporters like me.” He says these Supporters are friends now and they meet up at each Stopover.

He’s an avid reader of the Race Viewer, scouring Mary’s progress every breakfast time and reads all the Crew Blogs too. Patrick says of the Crew Blogs: “They are essential for people back at home who are following their loved ones. I like to read what life is like on board and helps me keep in touch.”

Patrick says life at sea suits his wife. “She’s happier. She’s always been brave but not one to seek the limelight. At each Stopover she doesn’t seem to hide at the back of a group so much and I’m very proud of her.” And he can’t wait for Derry-Londonderry too. As it’s so local, he can keep an eye on the Race Viewer so he knows when to set off from home to welcome in Mary.

It can seem daunting being separated from family for so long but Patrick has advice for anyone who anyone who’ll be a Race Crew Supporter in future races. He says: “It’s their dream and you can’t stand in the way of this. Try to go to as many Stopovers as you can – it takes time and also money but for me it has been all worth it. And involve yourself in as much of the race as you can. You’ll make lots of friends along the way.”

Mary and her teammates are due to arrive into Derry-Londonderry in the coming hours, keep an eye on the Clipper Race Viewer and Clipper Race: LIVE Facebook page. To find out more about being a Race Crew Supporter, click here.

          Schrijfster kinderboek weer bedreigd om passages over Surinamers      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Kinderboekenschrijver Sanne de Bakker heeft opnieuw de hoon over zich heen gekregen vanwege stigmatiserende passages uit haar kinderboek over Suriname.

In het boek 'Suriname, here we come!' uit 2012, dat ze zelf als een avontuurlijk reisboek omschrijft, staan zinnen als: "Weet je dat telefoongesprekken tussen Surinamers vaak lang kunnen duren? Een Surinamer heeft een eindeloze intro nodig en is niet in staat om een gesprek te beëindigen." En ook: "Weet je dat het in Suriname heel normaal is om vreemd te gaan? De meeste mannen in Suriname hebben minstens één buitenvrouw en het liefst meerdere."

Eerder al gedoe

De Bakker bood na de commotie meer dan een jaar geleden haar excuses aan en in overleg met de uitgever werd besloten om de passages te verwijderen. Maar daarmee was de kous niet af: de kwestie werd afgelopen weekend weer actueel nadat iemand een oude versie van het boek had geleend bij de bibliotheek in Amsterdam en daarover berichten op sociale media plaatste.

De schrijfster kreeg daarop zoveel kritiek binnen dat ze haar Facebookpagina offline haalde. "Er kwam een stortvloed van kwade berichten binnen. Mijn openbare pagina's werden gestalkt, ik werd uitgescholden, bedreigd, geïntimideerd, onterecht beschuldigd voor racist, waardoor ik totaal de controle kwijt was over wat er op mijn tijdlijn gebeurde", schrijft ze in een verklaring.

Wilde niemand kwetsen

De bieb in Amsterdam heeft gisteren besloten om het boek uit de collectie te verwijderen. Ook de nieuwe uitgever haalt het boek, waarin de passages dus niet meer staan, vanwege de commotie uit de handel.

In haar post zegt De Bakker dat ze er nog steeds achter staat dat "het feitje" over vreemdgaan uit het boek is gehaald. "Ik wil niemand kwetsen en het is ook nooit mijn bedoeling geweest om te stigmatiseren."

          Ολοκληρώθηκε με επιτυχία το Πανελλήνιο Πρωτάθλημα Ιστιοπλοΐας Optimist στην Πέτρα- Πάνω από 300 αθλητές στην Λέσβο (pics, vids)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Με την συμμετοχή 60 ομίλων από Ελλάδα και Κύπρο άρχισε την Πέμπτη και ολοκληρώθηκε χτες Δευτέρα, το πανελλήνιο πρωτάθλημα Optimist για παιδιά κάτω των 16 ετών.

Η σημαντική αυτή διοργάνωση πραγματοποιείται στα νερά της Βόρειας Λέσβου και συγκεκριμένα σε Πέτρα και Μόλυβο, όπου έγινε και ο τερματισμός.

Το παρών έδωσαν 300 ιστιοπλόοι, οι οποίοι καθημερινά δίνουν τον καλύτερο εαυτό τους να διακριθούν, αλλά θέλουν και σύμμαχο τον καιρό.

Αρκετός ήταν και ο κόσμος που καθημερινά παρακολουθούσε τους αγώνες.

Ολοκληρώθηκε με επιτυχία το Πανελλήνιο Πρωτάθλημα Ιστιοπλοΐας Optimist, που πραγματοποιήθηκε από τις 5 έως 9 Ιουλίου 2018, στην Πέτρα και συνδιοργάνωσαν η Περιφέρεια Βορείου Αιγαίου, το ΝΠΔΔ Πολιτισμού – Αθλητισμού - Τουρισμού Δήμου Λέσβου, η Ελληνική Ιστιοπλοϊκή Ομοσπονδία και ο Ιστιοπλοϊκός Όμιλος Μυτιλήνης.

Στο πρωτάθλημα συμμετείχαν συνολικά 300 αθλητές από 60 ομίλους από όλη την Ελλάδα, καθώς και αντιπροσωπείες από την Κύπρο. Σήμερα το μεσημέρι έγινε η τελετή λήξης των αγώνων με τις απονομές των επάθλων στους νικητές των αγώνων και τις τιμητικές πλακέτες σε χορηγούς και υποστηρικτές της διοργάνωσης.

Τα οφέλη από μια τέτοια εκδήλωση και η προβολή της Λέσβου κατά τη διάρκεια των αγώνων, σίγουρα, είναι ιδιαίτερα σημαντικά και πολλαπλά. Μέσα από τις προσπάθειες των αθλητών στα πλαίσια αυτής της μεγάλης αθλητικής διοργάνωσης προβάλαμε τη Λέσβο πανελλαδικά αναδείξαμε για ακόμη μια φορά τα μεγάλα συγκριτικά πλεονεκτήματα στη διοργάνωση ναυταθλητικών αγώνων.

Ο Δήμος Λέσβου είναι πάντα αρωγός και συμπαραστάτης σε τέτοιες αξιόλογες  προσπάθειες και τις στηρίζει με θέρμη και ενθουσιασμό. Θερμά συγχαρητήρια σε όλους όσοι συνέβαλαν με οποιοδήποτε τρόπο στην επιτυχή και ποιοτική διοργάνωση των αγώνων.

          दिल्ली की सरकार सामान्य नहीं हो रही | EDITORIAL by Rakesh Dubey      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
दिल्ली सरकार ने उपराज्यपाल की सलाह को उलटते हुए मुख्यमंत्री तीर्थ योजना लागू कर दी है।मुख्यमंत्री अरविंद केजरीवाल ने कहा है कि इस योजना को लेकर जो आपत्तियां थीं उनको खारिज करते हुए उन्होंने इसको मंज़ूरी दे दी। सरकार की इस योजना पर उपराज्यपाल ने सुझाव दिया था कि सरकार द्वारा मुफ्त तीर्थ यात्रा केवल गरीब लोगों के लिए होनी चाहिए लेकिन सीएम ने अब सभी आपत्तियों और सुझावों को खारिज करके मंज़ूरी दे दी है। सुप्रीम कोर्ट के फैसले के बाद भी दिल्ली सरकार और उप राज्यपाल के बीच अधिकारों की लड़ाई खत्म होने का नाम नहीं ले रही है। दोनों के बीच अभी भी टकराव की स्थिति बनी हुई है। दिल्ली के शासन संचालन के तौर-तरीकों पर उपजे मतभेद दूर नहीं हो सके उससे तो यही लगता है कि सुप्रीम कोर्ट के फैसले को सही तरीके से समझने से इन्कार किया गया। हालांकि सुप्रीम कोर्ट ने अपने फैसले में दोनों पक्षों को नसीहत दी थी और दोनों को ही उनकी सीमाएं भी बताई थीं, लेकिन पता नहीं कैसे और क्यों इस फैसले के आधार पर यह निष्कर्ष निकाल लिया गया कि उप राज्यपाल के पर कतरे गए और इस तरह दिल्ली सरकार की जीत हुई?

सुप्रीम कोर्ट का फैसला आते ही दिल्ली सरकार उसे अपने हिसाब से लागू करने में जुटी और इस क्रम में वह सबसे पहले अधिकारियों की नियुक्ति-तबादले करने की दिशा में आगे बढ़ी, लेकिन उसका सामना इस तथ्य से हुआ कि ऐसा करना तो उप राज्यपाल का अधिकार है और यह अधिकार गृह मंत्रलय की 2015 की जिस अधिसूचना से मिला है उसे सुप्रीम कोर्ट ने रदद नहीं किया है। कहना कठिन है कि शीर्ष अदालत दिल्ली सरकार और उप राज्यपाल के बीच वह सामंजस्य पैदा कर सकती है जो दिल्ली के शासन को सुगमता से चलाने के लिए आवश्यक है।

उप राज्यपाल से मुलाकात के बाद अपनी प्रवृत्ति के अनुरूप मुख्यमंत्री अरविंद केजरीवाल ने केंद्र सरकार पर तोहमत मढ़ने में देर नहीं की। उनके मुताबिक केंद्र सरकार सुप्रीम कोर्ट के फैसले को मानने से इन्कार कर रही है और अगर वह ऐसा करेगी तो फिर देश में अराजकता फैल जाएगी। उन्होंने यह रेखांकित करने में भी कोई कसर नहीं छोड़ी कि केंद्र सरकार का एक मात्र लक्ष्य दिल्ली सरकार को परेशान करना है। देश की राजधानी होने के नाते दिल्ली सरकार वह सब कुछ नहीं कर सकती जो करने का अधिकार अन्य राज्यों की सरकारों को है। यह तीर्थ योजना भी अन्य राज्य सरकारों की नकल है। मुश्किल यह है कि आम आदमी पार्टी अपनी सरकार को अन्य राज्यों से कमतर मानने को तैयार नहीं। सीमित अधिकारों के साथ अन्य नेता दिल्ली में बिना किसी झगड़े-झंझट के सरकार चला चुके हैं। वर्तमान दिल्ली सरकार के कदम उसकी जिद के कारण कितने लोकप्रिय होंगे यह समय बतायेगा।

Social media background checks are slowly becoming the norm. According to CareerBuilder, 70 percent of employers use social media in some way to vet their employees. In most cases, these checks are innocent -- or at least well-intentioned. Employers want to make sure the people they hire are conducting themselves online appropriately and respectfully. No brand wants one of their employees sending out offensive tweets on a regular basis or badmouthing his or her boss on Facebook. Intention is not the only thing that matters with social media background checks. In fact, employers can, and do, stumble into a mess… [Continue Reading]

          Las mejores rutas de verano en la provincia de Cuenca      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Aunque cualquier época del año es buena para disfrutar de nuestro tiempo libre, el verano es sinónimo de vacaciones. Por suerte, vivimos en una región con una gran riqueza patrimonial y natural, que invita a disfrutar de cada uno de sus atractivos sin necesidad de irnos muy lejos. Hoy, dedicamos este espacio a Cuenca. Así que, si todavía no has planificado todos tus días libres, ¡toma nota! Te proponemos las mejores rutas de verano en la provincia de Cuenca.   Rutas de verano en la provincia de Cuenca   Cuña de Rocas y Ríos Nuestra propuesta empieza con una ruta en el Parque Natural de la Serranía de Cuenca. Un enclave de más de 73.000 hectáreas, que se alza como una de las joyas medioambientales de Castilla-La Mancha. En concreto, te proponemos la ruta Cuña de Rocas y Ríos. A través de rocas, hoces y ríos, tendrás la oportunidad de disfrutar de la belleza de parajes como el Ventano del Diablo, la Ciudad Encantada, la laguna de Uña, el embalse de La Toba, el impresionante nacimiento del río Cuervo y el parque del Hosquillo.   Ruta de los Dinosaurios ¿Sabías que Cuenca cuenta con dos de los yacimientos de dinosaurios más importantes de Europa? Las Hoyas (La Cierva) y Lo Hueco (Fuentes) te adentrarán en la forma de vida de estos apasionantes animales. Además, tendrás la oportunidad de disfrutar el característico paisaje natural de la provincia.   Nacimiento del río Cuervo Déjate seducir por la belleza del nacimiento del río Cuervo. El sonido del agua, las diferentes cascadas de manantiales y sus pozas transparentes son una de las mejores alternativas para este verano. La belleza de este paraje de ensueño se quedará grabada en tu retina para siempre.   Ruta de las Caras de Buendía Las caras de Buendía son una serie de caras grabadas en piedras por los artistas Jorge Maldonado y Eulogio Reguillo. Es una ruta entre pinares que no presenta ninguna dificultad, ideal para toda la familia, que debía estar en nuestra selección de las mejores rutas de verano en la provincia de Cuenca.   Embalse de Buendía Si te has animado a visitar las Caras de Buendía, no dejes de pasarte por su embalse. Tiene dos zonas aptas para el baño, está permitida la pesca y alrededor hay diferentes senderos por los que pasear resulta muy agradable. Por ello, es el plan perfecto para una jornada estival.   La Laguna del Tobar En la comarca de la Serranía Alta se encuentra la Laguna del Tobar. Una laguna que, en algunas zonas, llega a alcanzar los 19 metros de profundidad. Su agua cristalina y su rica y abundante vegetación hacen de este enclave un lugar único en la provincia de Cuenca.   Las Chorreras de Enguídanos Como no podía ser de otra manera, en nuestra propuesta de las mejores rutas de verano en la provincia de Cuenca, no podían faltar Las Chorreras. Una increíble piscina natural –no la única en Castilla-La Mancha- que ha situado a la pequeña localidad de Enguídanos en uno de los atractivos del verano. El río Cabriel discurre entre rocas, formando saltos, cascadas y pozas de agua cristalina de las que no querrás salir. En sus aguas también se puede practicar barranquismo, por lo que la diversión está garantiza.   Si crees que nos hemos olvidado algún plan para disfrutar del verano en Cuenca, no dudes en hacérnoslo saber. ¡Te esperamos en nuestras redes sociales, Facebook y Twitter!

          Top #5Actions of the Past Week: July 6, 2018      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

We are SO INSPIRED by the hundreds of thousands (yes! HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS) of people who rallied last weekend all over the country in support of immigrant children and families! Your voices are making a difference! We have already defeated two very bad immigration bills in the last few weeks because Congress heard the outraged voices of people like you!

This week we're continuing to speak out about immigration, and demanding Wells Fargo stop financing private prison corporations that are profiting off the pain and separation of families. We're also sharing important actions around gun safety and early learning.  

As always, please read, share, and flex those parent powers before enjoying your weekend. Thank you for all you do!  

1. Tell Wells Fargo - Stop Financing Pain For Corporate Gain! 

BACKGROUND: Let’s use our power as consumers to cut off the corporate money behind Trump’s unconscionable immigration policies! Private prison companies are not only making huge profits from the incarceration and detention of immigrants, they are also a huge political force in lobbying for the legislation and policies that criminalize immigrants and communities of color in the U.S. But private prisons are not the only ones making money here. Two of the private prison industry leaders, CoreCivic and GEO Group, depend on debt financing from Wells Fargo and other banks to conduct their day-to-day business operations, finance new facilities, and acquire smaller companies. This is a big deal. An analysis of U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filings over the past 10 years, shows that Wells Fargo has played a leading role in financing these debts. As consumers, we have the power to stop this!  *Join us to tell Wells Fargo to STOP financing CoreCivic and GEO Group, private prison corporations that are profiting off the pain and separation of families. 


2. Stop the Opening of New Floodgates for Gun Sales! 

BACKGROUND: The NRA and gun manufacturers want guns everywhere, for everyone, not just here in the United States, but around the world. They are pushing hard for a rule change that would move the handling of export licenses of semiautomatic assault weapons and other powerful firearms from the U.S. State Department (focused on safeguarding our nation) to the U.S. Commerce Department (focused on promoting American business). This transfer of authority would open new floodgates for arms sales internationally, with serious implications for our national security. *Submit a comment now to the State Department and the Commerce Department through the link above. You can write in something like: “I oppose this rule change that would switch the regulations of firearms export from the U.S. State Department to the U.S. Commerce Department.” The public comment period for this rule change ends on July 9.

3. Speak Out: Imprisoning Kids With Parents is Still Imprisoning Kids!

BACKGROUND: President Trump’s June 20th Executive Action did not end the zero tolerance policy, and did not stop the continued detention of children--rather it allows for the detention of children with their parents, while also speeding up the process for deporting immigrant families applying for asylum. It is well-documented that family incarceration has serious negative consequences for the mental and physical health of children and families. Research has consistently shown that even a short amount of time in detention is harmful for children, compounding on trauma they have already experienced in their home country and on their journey. Children deserve to be with their families outside of cages and they deserve to have their rights protected! Get the latest information on how to stop family separation and detention on the MomsRising blog


4. Tell Congress: Families Need Affordable, High-Quality Child Care for All!

BACKGROUND: This week the New York Times released a new poll that is absolutely no surprise to us--one of the top reasons young adults aren't having children is the high cost of childcare. This is NOT good. The lack of steady population growth can negatively impact our economy with a declining workforce. Thankfully, a real solution to the childcare crisis is already here! The Child Care for Working Families Act if passed would help comprehensively address the struggles our families are facing every day to find high-quality, affordable childcare. Urge your representatives in Washington, D.C. to co-sponsor and support the Child Care for Working Families Act to expand access to affordable, high-quality early learning for all our children!


5. Share your #FamiliesBelongTogether Photo 

We are so awed and inspired by the amazing mobilizations against family separation and detention that took place across the country this past week. And we'd love to see your photos! Please take a moment to share your #FamiliesBelongTogether snapshots on social media (using that hashtag), and we'll be sure to give them some love! And check out photos on our Facebook page from events across the country. THANK YOU for helping us make some noise that cannot be ignored!  

Thank you for all you do, and #KeepMarching!

          MU Undang 12 Pemain dan 1 Pelatih yang Terjebak di Gua Thailand      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Manchester - Kabar gembira datang dari Thailand. Sebanyak 12 anggota tim sepak bola remaja Wild Boars (Mu Pa) dan satu ppelatih yang terjebak di Gua Tham Luang, Provinsi Chiang Rai, telah berhasil dievakuasi keluar, Selasa (10/7/2018). Kabar menggembirakan itu mendapat sambutan dari berbagai penjuru dunia, termasuk Manchester United

Tak lama setelah 13 orang berhasil dievakuasi, MU melalui akun Twitter klub menyatakan akan mengundang mereka berkunjung ke Stadion Old Trafford. Undangan juga berlaku untuk para pihak yang terlibat dalam operasi penyelamatan. 

"MUFC lega mengetahui 12 pesepak bola dan pelatih mereka yang terjebak di gua di Thailand sekarang selamat. Pikiran dan doa kami bersama mereka yang terpengaruh peristiwa tersebut. Kami dengan senang hati akan menyambut tim dari Wild Boars Football Club dan para penyelamat di Old Trafford pada musim mendatang."

Tragedi Goa Tham Luang terjadi pada 23 Juni 2018. Operasi penyelamatan baru dimulai pada Minggu (8/7/2018) dan dilakukan secara bertahap. Penyelamatan ini melibatkan lebih dari 1.000 orang dari 18 negara.

Proses evakuasi menyedot perhatian karena dianggap sulit dan berbahaya. Kontur gua licin, rumit, dan diperparah dengan faktor cuaca yang tak menentu. Seorang penyelam yang merupakan mantan anggota SEAL, Saman Kuman, tewas dalam operasi penyelamatan, Jumat (6/7/2018). 

Setelah berlangsung selama tiga hari, Tim SEAL Angkatan Laut Thailand mengonfirmasi seluruh anggota tim sepak bola yang terjebak di gua selama dua pekan itu berhasil dikeluarkan.

          حسن بلاسم.. مسرحة الحرب      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

يصل إلى مركز العبور – هكذا بدأت قصة الأرشيف والواقع من مجموعة "معرض الجثث" (منشورات المتوسط، 2015) للروائي العراقي حسن بلاسم- وهناك يضطر لأن يسرد على عون الإغاثة قصته الغريبة. القصة التي ستتحوّل إلى مادة أرشيفية، تُضاف إلى قصص أخرى لآلاف الهاربين من الحرب العبثية في العراق أو في سوريا، أو في أي منطقة من العالم الذي مزقته الحروب. تتحوّل القصة إلى تأشيرة للحصول على حق اللجوء إلى بلد أوروبي. القصة طوف نجاة، يتشبث به اللاجئ حتى لا يغرق.

مركز العبور يناسب وضعية ضحايا الحروب العبثية، فهو بمثابة درجة الصفر من المكان

يُمكن في البداية أن نطرح سؤالًا عن دلالة اختيار حسن بلاسم "مركز العبور" مكانًا لسرد قصّة السائق؟ أكيد أنّ الاختيار لم يكن عشوائيًا، بل إنّ القارئ يكتشف أنّ مركز العبور يناسب وضعية ضحايا الحروب العبثية، فهو بمثابة درجة الصفر من المكان: مكان حيادي، حيث لا يشعر الهارب بأنّه في أيّ مكان، لا هو في وطنه ولا هو في منفاه. وكأنّ القصص هي آخر قطعة حطام يتشبث بها الهارب من الحرب بعد أن غرقت السفينة، وبلعت أعماق البحر كلّ الذين كانوا على متنها.

اقرأ/ي أيضًا: كيف يرى كتاب الخيال العلمي مستقبل العراق؟

بدأت مأساة بطل قصة حسن بلاسم يوم اختطفته جماعة إرهابية، في ليلة شتوية بعد أن أوكلت له إدارة المستشفى مهمّة نقل رؤوس ستة ضحايا إلى مركز حفظ الجثث.

ستكون مهمته الجديدة بعد الاختطاف تفجير موهبته في التمثيل، مرة بلعب دور الضحية ومرة بوصفه بطلًا. إذ قامت الجماعة الإرهابية بتصويره أمام الرؤوس الستة، ليؤدي دور ضابط في الجيش العراقي كانت مهمته اغتصاب النساء والاعتداء على المواطنين الأبرياء، بأمر من ضابط في الجيش الأمريكي. أما عن الرؤوس الموضوعة أمام قدميه فهي لستة ضباط من الجيش العراقي تمّ إعدامهم بتهمة الخيانة.

لقي الفيديو نجاحًا باهرًا، وتداولته وسائل الإعلام الكبيرة، على غرار قناة الجزيرة، على أنّه فيديو حقيقي، وهو ما آلم السائق ألمًا شديدًا. نفترض أنّه قال في قرارة نفسه: الإعلام مجرد آلة كبيرة لصناعة الكذب، وتصديق الأكاذيب. لم تعد وظيفة الإعلام نقل الواقع بل اختلاقه أيضًا. وبسبب هذا النجاح، أصبح السائق مطلوبًا من قبل الجماعات المتشدّدة الأخرى، لأجل استغلال موهبته الفذة في الدعاية الحربية، الأمر الذي رفع أسهمه عاليًا.

وبسبب كثرة الطلب عليه، قامت الجماعة الأولى ببيعه لجماعة أخرى، بغية تسجيل فيديو جديد، لكن بدور مختلف، وسيؤدّي السائق في القصة أدوارًا متعددة، من عضو في جيش المهدي، إلى شيعي، ثم سني، ثم كردي خائن، ثم مسيحي كافر، ثم إرهابي سعودي... إلخ، وكل هذه الأدوار كلّلت بنجاح مبهر.

لقد أبان السائق عن موهبة فذة في تقمص الأدوار، كأنّه تلقّى دروسًا عالية المستوى في فن التمثيل المسرحي، فتارة يتقمّص دور الضحية، وتارة أخرى دور القاتل المرعب الذي يجزّ الرؤوس. بين ليلة وضحاها، تحوّلت حياته إلى مسرحية ساخرة. ثمّ أليست الحروب مجرّد سخريات سوداء؟

حتى الرؤوس الستة في القصة تحوّلت إلى فواعل سردية مركزية، لأنّ حضورها تجاوز وظيفة تأثيث مشهد تصوير البطل لأدواره المُختلفة. لقد اكتسبت هذه الرؤوس المقطوعة هويات متحوّلة من مشهد إلى مشهد آخر، فهي رؤوس ضباط في الجيش العراقي تارة، وتارة رؤوس شيعية، وفي أخرى رؤوس سنية... إلى غير ذلك من الهويات التي تتبدّل من جلسة تصوير إلى أخرى. في حين هي في الأصل، رؤوس بلا هوية، ثمّ نتساءل: هل للجثث هويات؟

في القصة تظهر شخصية أخرى هي شخصية الأستاذ  صديق السائق. وهي شخصية غامضة، وعميقة في نفس الوقت. لذا كان تأثيرها على السائق بالغا، وما يميزها أنّها تتمتع برؤية فلسفية لاذعة عن هذا العالم الكئيب؛ فهي ترى أنّ "الدم المسفوك والخرافة هما أصل العالم. أما الإنسان فهو ليس الكائن الوحيد الذي يقتل من أجل الخبز أو الحب أو السلطة، فالحيوانات في الغابة تفعل ذلك بشتى السبل، لكنّه الوحيد الذي يقتل بسبب الإيمان". (ص12)

الإنسان هو الكائن الطبيعي الوحيد الذي يقتل بسبب معتقداته الدينية، أو يبرر قتله باللجوء إلى النصوص المقدسة

لنتأمّل الجملة الأخيرة، إنّها تفسّر طبيعة الجريمة البشرية؛ فالإنسان هو الكائن الطبيعي الوحيد الذي يقتل بسبب معتقداته الدينية، أو يبرر قتله باللجوء إلى النصوص المقدسة. القتل بسبب الجوع يختلف عن القتل بسبب الدين.

لقد كتب بلاسم قصته، وقصصه الأخرى، لأجل تجسيد هذه الحقيقة المرعبة: "لا يمكن حل قضية الإنسان إلا بالرعب المتواصل" (ص13)، فحضارة الإنسان هي حضارة العنف، ومنذ العصور القديمة كانت الحروب دائمًا ضرورية.

          6 Ways to Skip Meal Prep This Weekend — Tips from The Kitchn      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

As one of the team leaders of Kitchn's Meal Plan Club, this is a little hard for me to admit: I'm not that into meal prep. Meal prep is the last task in meal planning that really puts your plan into action and makes weeknight dinners that much easier and less stressful, but I fail at it most weeks.

The problem isn't that I don't understand the basics of meal prep, but rather that come Sunday afternoon I'd rather run around the yard with my kids or drink a glass of wine and read a magazine. Recently, I've taken to adding just enough lazy meal prepping to my routine to make weeknight dinners easier without sacrificing my precious weekend time. So for all you lazy meal preppers, here's what to do.

          Richard Swift’s Cause Of Death Revealed By Musician’s Family      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Richard Swift’s family has revealed his cause of death in a Facebook post released late Monday night.

“Yes, Richard Swift suffered from alcohol addiction, and it’s what ultimately took his life,” the post reads. “With the support of family and friends and the assistance of MusiCares, Richard had checked himself into rehab for multiple stays over the past two years, but his body gave out before he could overcome the disease.”

The Inquisitr reported his death at the young age of 41 last week, which was confirmed on Instagram by his Black Keys and Arcs bandmate Dan Auerbach. He left behind a wife, three children, his father, and his five brothers.

Auerbach had posted a photo of himself and Swift, captioning it, “Today, the world lose one of the most talented musicians I know. He’s now with his Mom and Sister. I will miss you my friend.”

Doctors, how can this be explained? A woman who has been married for 12 years without a child, gave birth to a set of twins in March this year. Then in June, only 3 months later, she gave birth to a son.

According to her niece who shared the news on Facebook, the new mother kept complaining of stomach pain after giving birth to her twins, a boy and a girl. On June 29, she went into labour again and gave birth to another boy.

This occurrence has left people stunned after her story went viral and people are wondering how this can be explained medically.Chinenye Sylvia shared photos of the twin babies and the son who came months after and wrote: Cheiiiiiiiiiiii….. remeber when i shared the first picture of my aunty that gave birth to twins after 12years of marriage… just yesterday another baby came from same stomach… 3months after… she always complain of her stomach growing instead of going down after giving brith to the twins not knowing that one child is still remaining there.

          Como elaborar um currículo vencedor?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Oi, galera! Tudo bem? Hoje vamos conversar sobre profissão, futuro e oportunidades de emprego!

Está pensando em mudar de emprego ou sair do desemprego? O acabou de sair da faculdade e estar a procura de boas oportunidades? O primeiro passo para alcançar os seus objetivos profissionais é saber como elaborar um currículo que se destaque e que te ajude a conquistar a vaga que você tanto almeja. Criamos um passo a passo mesmo de como elaborar um currículo vencedor e ter uma chuva de propostas de emprego. Vem ver:

Reúna as principais informações
O primeiro passo para entender como elaborar um currículoé ter a consciência que ele é um documento que reúne sua experiência profissional e sua trajetória. Por isso é essencial elaborar um currículo com carinho, inteligência e prestando atenção em todos os pontos.

Junte todas as informações relacionadas a sua profissão, cursos, viagens, workshops, anote tudo de incrível que você já fez e vamos para o próximo de como elaborar um currículo.

Capriche na ortografia

Um dos pontos mais analisados em todas as vagas seja qual for o setor é a ortografia e gramática. Mesmo sendo um documento com bloco de textos o português é fundamental para você que está pensando em como montar um currículo.

Se tiver dúvidas consulte um dicionário, mas não deixe de caprichar em um bom texto no seu currículo.
Revise, revise e revise mais uma vez 
Existe uma técnica usada no jornalismo que é o texto de gaveta. Ao ficar muito tempo focado em um texto você pode não notar os errinhos, por isso é importante deixar um pouco o texto de lado, dar uma volta, respirar e voltar.

Ao pegar o texto novamente você irá ver com outros olhos.

Parece bobagem, mas revisar é um ponto essencial na hora de entender os passos de como elaborar um currículo.
Mostre todos os seus talentos
Você manda bem em planilhas? coloque no currículo! Por isso aquele primeiro passo de reunir todas as informações é importante. Você vai puxar na memória todas as suas qualidades e todos os seus talentos que vão fazer o seu currículo ser vencedor e ser escolhido para a vaga que você deseja.

Vale até perguntar para as pessoas próximas quais seus talentos e quais áreas você tem mais facilidade. Isso vai ajudar a entender como elaborar um currículo que de fato combine com você.

Deixe a modéstia de lado e reconheça seus talentos, isso vai contar pontos no processo seletivo.
Peça para alguém da área avaliar o seu currículo
Você já reuniu todas as principais informações, escreveu seu currículo, revisou, incluiu todos os seus dons,  agora hora de ver se dá para melhorar (sempre dá) ou então seu currículo já está um sucesso e perfeito para a vaga dos sonhos.

Para isso conte com a ajuda de alguém da área que possa analisar seu currículo e te dar algumas dicas preciosas.

Caso você não conheça ninguém, pode entrar em grupos no Facebook, pesquisar no LinkedIn e fazer seu network e de quebra conseguir uma opinião sincera sobre o seu currículo.
Como anda o seu Linkedin?
E por falar em LinkedIn, como ele está? A empresa antes de te chamar para uma entrevista fará um levantamento sobre a sua vida inteira nas redes sociais, e o LinkedIn é uma rede social voltada para o trabalho por isso é importante mantê-la atualizada.

Você pode inclusive depois de entender como elaborar o seu currículo postar lá, assim você já mostra que é craque no assunto e leva a sério a sua carreira profissional.

Procure fotos mais profissionais, compartilhar textos da área e fazer conexões relevantes, isso vai te ajudar a ganhar uma estrelas no processo seletivo. 
Apresentação campeã
Pronto, você já entendeu como elaborar um currículoe está empolgado para divulgar o seu currículo vencedor para todas as vagas que te interessam.

Agora é hora de mandar bem na apresentação, dois parágrafos resumindo: quem você é e seu objetivo vão complementar o envio do currículo.

Essa carta de apresentação é o primeiro contato entre você e a empresa, por isso precisa ser uma apresentação campeã que vai te ajudar a emplacar o trabalho dos sonhos.

Seja claro, objetivo, criativo e mostre disponibilidade. As empresas gostam de pessoas animadas e que demonstram paixão pela profissão. Será que você tem feito isso da forma certa?

Lembra da dica de como elaborar um currículo de mostrar para alguém da área? Então já manda a cartinha de apresentação junto e tenha uma segunda opinião sobre como você se coloca no mercado de trabalho.

Para você não perder nenhuma informação vamos ao check list!

"We're in D.C. with a $20m check to pay bail bonds for over 2,000 mothers still detained. More than 1 million people donated over $20m and their message is clear: reunite the families. Trump says he's a deal-maker, here's his chance to cut a deal.
Congressman Joaquin Castro
I also just made a contribution to Congressman Joaquin Castro and urge others to do so, as well, as he is exhibiting powerful leadership. Congressman @JoaquinCastrotx is calling for a special master to take over the reunification process if the government fails to meet today's deadline. You can see his press conference from this morning on Twitter. Today, he also "introduced the Restoring Oversight for Members of Congress Act with @RonWyden which would allow Members of Congress immediate access to federal facilities including those under contract or lease.

          USA Today: “Family separation combines cruelty, incompetence”      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
In full agreement:Family reunification is a true test of competency for the Trump administration. Failure is not an option." -Angela  

USA Today: “Family separation combines cruelty, incompetence”

USA Today is out with a scathing editorial condemning the Trump administration’s cruelty and incompetence with respect to the separation of families, stating that with respect to their speedy reunification, failure is not an option.
As the editorial notes:
It turns out that the number of separated children is closer to 3,000 than the 2,000 originally cited by administration officials. Among them are about 100 under the age of 5. In dozens of those cases, parents have been deported minus their children, or HHS has apparently lost track of them.
The results are abominations, like what happened Friday when a 1-year-old boy, sipping from a bottle of milk and playing with a blue ball, appeared as an immigration defendant before a judge in Phoenix. The child’s father had been shipped off to Honduras.
Small wonder that two out of three Americans abhor what Trump has done with these children. In their frontal assault on illegal immigration, which has actually become less of a problem than it was several years ago, Trump and his lieutenants argue that when parents illegally enter the U.S. with their children, the adults cannot be simply freed pending immigration court proceedings.
But that’s disingenuous. There are established means of ensuring that parents show up for court and not disappear. A family case management effort vetted by the Department of Homeland Security in 2015 and an ankle-bracelet monitoring program are two alternatives to incarceration, that have both shown 99 percent success rates in guaranteeing court appearances. These alternatives are cheaper, too.
Cost considerations aside, reunifying children with their parents needs to be a top priority from a humanitarian standpoint. Leading experts on child behavior say children could suffer serious psychological damage with each passing day, week or month apart from a parent.
Sabraw was right to order that the American Civil Liberties Union, which is representing parents harmed by Trump’s separation tactic, be provided a list of the 100 youngest children. Maybe the ACLU can help locate their parents.
The reunification process should be transparent. The American public should know the numbers daily: how many children remain detained; how many parents have been deported without their children; and how many reunifications have occurred. Precise numbers, not vague or rounded ones, are needed to generate confidence that children aren’t slipping through the cracks.
Family reunification is a true test of competency for the Trump administration. Failure is not an option.

Власти Москвы не согласовали проведение 18 июля в центре Москвы митинга против повышения пенсионного возраста. Об этом сообщил один из заявителей член партии «Яблоко» Сергей Митрохин.«Проведение акции в центре Москвы невозможно в связи с действием указа президента РФ "Об особенностях применения усиленных мер безопасности в период проведения в Российской Федерации чемпионата мира по футболу FIFA 2018 года", которым ограничивается проведение мероприятий в Москве до 25 июля 2018 года»,— говорится в ответе первого заместителя руководителя департамента региональной безопасности Москвы Василия Олейника, который господин Митрохин опубликовал в Facebook.Организаторам предложено провести митинг в «гайд-парке» в Сокольниках. «По-видимому, проводить митинг 18 июля мы не будем. Сокольники это для нас неприемлемый вариант, это издевательство.

В интернете появилось еще одно видео, записанное защитником сборной Хорватии, предположительно, после победы над сборной России в четвертьфинале чемпионата мира.

Слава Украине! Всем привет, "Белград", гори!» — переводит с сербского слова спортсмена «Советский спорт». Часть посмотревших видео решили, что Вида желает столице Сербии Белграду сгореть. Однако, футболист мог говорить и о сербском ресторане «Белград» в Киеве, одним из владельцев которого, как выяснило издание, был и, возможно, остается, бывший одноклубник Виды по киевскому «Динамо» серб Горан Гавранчич. По версии, «гори» ближе по значению к слову «жги». По словам журналиста хорватской Sport Arena Ивана Жежеля, Йован, с которым говорит Види,-- это совладелец «Белграда».В кадре также появляется бывший нападающий московского ЦСКА…
          Facebook xin lỗi vì gắn sai vị trí Hoàng Sa, Trường Sa       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

TTO - Chiều 5-7, truyền thông của Facebook tại Việt Nam phát đi lời xin lỗi vì gây ra sự nhầm lẫn cho người dùng trong việc để Trường Sa, Hoàng Sa thuộc lãnh thổ Trung Quốc trong bản đồ quảng cáo.

Hai quần đảo Hoàng Sa và Trường Sa của Việt Nam khi bị gắn nhầm

Trong thông điệp này, người phát ngôn Facebook cho hay: "Cuối tuần qua, chúng tôi đã nhận được phản hồi từ người dùng ở Việt Nam về một số điểm không chính xác trong bản đồ vị trí được sử dụng trong Trình quản lý quảng cáo của Facebook.

Chúng tôi đã điều tra và phát hiện đây là lỗi kỹ thuật. Chúng tôi đã sửa lỗi và đang triển khai bản cập nhật trên toàn cầu. Chúng tôi xin lỗi vì gây ra sự nhầm lẫn này cho người dùng".

Đại diện Facebook cũng cho biết Chính phủ Việt Nam đã hỏi hãng về vấn đề này và hãng đã giải thích, bao gồm cả lỗi kỹ thuật đã được sửa chữa.

Đại diện mạng xã hội này cũng khẳng định bản cập nhật sửa lỗi đối với vị trí Hoàng Sa, Trường Sa đã được triển khai trên toàn cầu. Và, hãng giữ quan điểm trung lập tại những khu vực tranh chấp lãnh thổ hoặc các vùng địa lý nhạy cảm khác.

Trước đó, việc Facebook để Trường Sa, Hoàng Sa thuộc lãnh thổ Trung Quốc đã gây bức xúc trong dư luận người dùng Việt Nam. Nhiều ý kiến cho rằng hãng phải xin lỗi người dân Việt Nam trước "lỗi kỹ thuật" nghiêm trọng này.

Trong ngày hôm qua 4-7 cũng có một số thông tin trên mạng xã hội cho rằng Facebook chỉ sửa lỗi trên bản đồ hiển thị ở Việt Nam, còn nếu truy cập từ những khu vực khác trên thế giới, hai quần đảo này vẫn hiện ra ở vị trí thuộc lãnh thổ Trung Quốc. Thông tin này đến nay được Facebook khẳng định là không chính xác.

          Here's Why Right-Wingers Are So Threatened by Hearing Foreign Languages in the Trump Era      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Xenophobia runs deep among the far-right.

In many countries, studying foreign languages in public school systems is not only encouraged—it is mandatory, which is why so many Swedish, German, Norwegian and Dutch high school students have learned to speak English fluently even though it isn’t their native language. But among many right-wing Republicans in the U.S., being monolingual is considered a badge of honor. And in the Trump era, some ugly racial incidents demonstrate that speaking a language other than English in public can be met with verbal abuse.

In May, New York City-based attorney and strong Trump supporter Aaron Schlossberg went into a xenophobic anti-immigrant tirade in a Mid-town Manhattan restaurant, the Fresh Kitchen, when he overheard an employee speaking Spanish with two of the customers. Angrily, Schlossberg ranted, “My guess is they’re not documented; so, my next call is to ICE to have each one of them kicked out of my country. If they have the balls to come here and live off of my money—I pay for their welfare, I pay for their ability to be here—the least they can do is speak English.”

More recently on July 4, a Petaluma, California man named Larry Lappin showed his ignorance when he heard the family of his neighbor, Ivette Celedon—a third-generation U.S. citizen of Mexican descent—enjoying some Latin music in their backyard. Lappin was furious; as he saw it, listening to music that was performed in Spanish on the 4th of July was disrespectful and unpatriotic. And he angrily confronted them, insisting they had no right to “disrespect my fucking country” by listening to Spanish-language music on America’s Independence Day.

Lappin later apologized after a smartphone video of his rant went viral. But he certainly wasn’t the first American xenophobe to feel threatened by the use of Spanish in public, and he won’t be the last. To some racists, using any language other than English in the U.S.—even as a secondary or tertiary language—is akin to burning the flag.

Democrat Barack Obama found out that out during his first presidential campaign in 2008, when Bill Bennett and other knuckle-dragging Republicans were deeply offended because he asserted that foreign-language study should be a much higher priority in American schools. Obama stressed that although immigrants to the U.S. should be able to speak English as well as possible, he believed that Americans would be much better off from an education standpoint if they could achieve fluency in Spanish, French and other languages.

Obama asserted, “I agree that immigrants should learn English. But instead of worrying about whether immigrants can learn English—they’ll learn English—you need to make sure your child can speak Spanish. You should be thinking about how can your child become bilingual. We should have every child speaking more than one language.”

The president-to-be also asserted, “It’s embarrassing when Europeans come over here. They all speak English, they speak French, they speak German. And then, we go over to Europe—and all we can say is ‘Merci beaucoup.’”

Nothing Obama said was even remotely offensive. In fact, Obama was spot on: achieving fluency in two or more foreign languages would be great for American students from an educational standpoint just as Dutch students benefit when they’ve achieved fluency in English and German.

But xenophobia runs deep among far-right wingnuts, who see the use of Spanish, Mandarin and other foreign languages in public as a threat to the English language. In 2012’s Republican presidential primary, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich ran an attack ad in South Carolina that lambasted Mitt Romney for being proficient in French.  According to Gingrich’s ad, Romney’s French-speaking skills meant that he didn’t deserve the GOP’s nomination (which, of course, Romney received anyway before losing to President Obama in the general election).

Fear of foreign languages is one thing that Republicans often have in common with fascist dictators like Italy’s Benito Mussolini in Italy and Spain’s Francisco Franco. In Spain, Franco was bitterly opposed to Spaniards learning any language other than Spanish; speaking Catalan in the streets of Barcelona was illegal under the Franco regime. Mussolini, similarly, wanted Italians to speak Italian exclusively—and this type of hyper-nationalism is alive and well among right-wing Americans like Schlossberg and Lappin who become enraged when they hear a language other than English spoken in public.

Although Trump is married to a Slovenian woman, his supporters love the aggressive hyper-nationalism he has championed. And when Latinos are harassed or abused merely for having private conversations in Spanish in New York City or Petaluma, California, it is a symptom of Trumpism and the type of fearful xenophobia he has helped create.

Ideally, foreign-language study in the U.S. should be mandatory and start as early as kindergarten just as studying English from an early age is mandatory in parts of Europe. Spanish should be a requirement, given the language’s importance—with studying German, French and other languages encouraged as well. There is no reason why, as Obama suggested, American students shouldn’t be able to graduate from high school fluent in two, three or more languages.

The U.S. is in no danger whatsoever of losing its status as a predominantly English-speaking country. But encouraging American students to achieve fluency in Spanish and other foreign languages would certainly benefit them from an educational and employment standpoint—even it does trouble some conservatives quite deeply.

Colombia: Lácteos Gloria entra competir con 70 referencias al país

La compañía espera facturar $353.000 millones entre sus diferentes marcas en Colombia, lo que significa un crecimiento de 7 % respecto a 2017.

La marca Gloria llegó oficialmente al mercado colombiano con el objetivo de consolidar una distribución masiva en todo el país y con la meta de posicionarla como una de las favoritas entre los consumidores.

Este 2018 el Grupo Gloria espera facturar $353.000 millones entre sus diferentes marcas en Colombia, lo que significa un crecimiento de 7 % respecto a 2017. De esta forma incrementaría su participación, especialmente en el mercado de productos lácteos (donde hoy es inferior al 10 %), entre cinco y seis puntos en el corto y mediano plazo.

Para este propósito la compañía programó una inversión de $21.000 millones durante 2018, de los cuales $10.000 millones corresponden a una campaña de medios y $11.000 millones son para infraestructura industrial y logística.

La compañía opera tres plantas productivas en Cogua, Simijaca (Cundinamarca) y Barranquilla. De acuerdo con el gerente general de Gloria para Colombia y Ecuador, Iván López Arango, en ellas se tiene la capacidad instalada suficiente para esta marca nueva, solo se hicieron algunas adaptaciones.

El principal reto de la marca es la distribución, pues de esta depende que se alcance una expansión exitosa. Al respecto, López explicó que asumirán importantes gastos en puestos de venta y distribuidores con el fin de llegar a las zonas Pacífico, Occidente, Antioquia y el Eje Cafetero, “donde consideramos que todavía tenemos muchas oportunidades, ya que por las marcas que trabajábamos antes estamos más concentrados en las zonas Centro, Costa y Santanderes”.

Gloria está en Colombia desde 2004 cuando adquirió la empresa Algarra. Más tarde, en 2014, hizo lo propio con Lechesan y California, sumándolas al grupo empresarial. Estas marcas continuarán en los mercados regionales donde tienen mayor relevancia (Cundinamarca, para el caso de Algarra y los Santanderes para el caso de Lechesan).

Este año la compañía cerrará con 866 empleos directos y 1.000 indirectos, entre los cuales se cuentan más de 600 ganaderos de diferentes regiones. Con el crecimiento de su operación esta sería la primera población beneficiada, pues se generaría más empleo y se aumentaría el acopio de leche en el mercado local.

“Con Gloria llegamos decididos a convertirnos en un jugador importante en Colombia, el tercer país en consumo de lácteos en América Latina detrás de Brasil y México. Solo en nuestro país hay un mercado de más de $3,9 billones, en donde creemos hay espacio para todos los competidores”, enfatizó el gerente.

Entre los productos que hacen parte del lanzamiento de la marca y que están en el mercado desde hace más de dos semanas figuran: leche entera, deslactosada y descremada, yogurt en cuatro sabores, kumis, bebidas con almendras, crema de leche, leche condensada, leche saborizada, leche evaporada, avena y barras de cereal, los cuales suman un total de 70 referencias.

“Pensamos que el lanzamiento en Colombia es un muy importante. Lanzar 70 referencias de productos en un año es algo que ninguna compañía de consumo masivo ha hecho antes. Este hecho demuestra nuestra decisión y compromiso con el consumidor colombiano”, dijo el gerente, al tiempo que destacó la importancia del país en la operación del Grupo.

“Colombia tiene un per cápita muy bajo en derivados lácteos que puede ser aumentado si se trabaja bien. Además del momento que está viviendo el país y de que ya tenemos una distribución establecida que nos puede hacer apalancamiento de lo que queremos trabajar para llegar al mercado”, dijo.

Además, para el segundo semestre se lanzarán nuevas bebidas dentro de un proceso de innovación que incluye referencias, diseños, empaques, procesos logísticos, de producción, de acopio de leche y frutas, y en programas de calidad interna.

De hecho, Gloria prevé aprovechar el momento de crecimiento y mejora económica que está viviendo el país: “estamos en un momento coyuntural importante donde la expectativa electoral termina, la Copa Mundial de la FIFA empieza y el Índice de confianza del consumidor por primera vez es positivo en mucho tiempo, y esperamos que así siga”, indicó López.

La promesa de valor de gloria es el sabor, “por eso nuestro eslogan es ‘Gloria me sabe a gloria’”, explicó el gerente general, además de un precio asequible en los productos. “Es una muy buena fórmula para que a pesar de ser una marca premium podamos llegar a conquistar gran parte del mercado”, enfatizó. También le apuntarán a ser reconocidos por sabor, calidad e innovación, “para quienes buscan alimentos saludables que aporten bienestar”.

El Grupo Gloria es un conglomerado industrial de capitales peruanos con 77 años de experiencia que tiene negocios en Perú, Bolivia, Ecuador, Argentina, Uruguay, Puerto Rico y Colombia. Sus actividades se desarrollan en los sectores de lácteos y alimentos, cemento, papeles, agroindustria, transporte y servicios.

El año pasado el Grupo Gloria reportó ventas por US$3.357 millones, de los cuales US$2.070 millones correspondieron a ventas de alimentos y bebidas en 70 países de América, Europa, Asia y África, donde la empresa tiene presencia.

          JENNIFER HOFFMAN - "RELATÓRIO DA ENERGIA DE JULHO DE 2018" - 03.07.2018      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Estamos em um novo mês novamente e indo para o segundo semestre de 2018. Você acredita que o ano já passou da metade? Um novo ciclo de energia começa neste mês quando concluímos um ciclo muito grande em junho e, assim, nosso processo de alinhamento, integração e expansão continua avançando. Lembre-se de que esses ciclos de energia não terminam, são lições e oportunidades de aprendizado para que nos movamos além do karma, do julgamento e do trauma da ferida da alma para uma vida mais alegre, abundante e pacífica. Nós  podemos ter a oportunidade de explorar essas opções este mês.

Este é um mês 7, o número de espiritualidade e da aprendizagem no sentido de buscar o domínio, o conhecimento e a realização. Tenha isso em mente ao longo deste mês e observe as lições e oportunidades de transformação que surgem para você. Julho de 2018 tem poderosos temas energéticos de escolha e mudança, 6 planetas retrógrados, incluindo Mercúrio e Marte, e 3 eclipses entre 12 de julho e 11 de agosto. Ufa, pode ser uma jornada acidentada, mas você estará preparado. O artigo desta semana é  o Relatório de Energia de Julho.

Ok, pessoal, o ensaio geral de 2018 acabou e com o final de junho estamos no segundo semestre de 2018 que, como eu disse, acredito que será mais fácil e menos desafiador do que o primeiro semestre deste ano. Agora, isso pode não ser verdade para você (crenças desempenham um grande papel na forma como experimentamos energia), mas o potencial para mais alegria, movimento e expansão está conosco em julho.

Dito isso, em um mês que tem dois eclipses, seis planetas retrógrados e algumas repetições de ciclo de longo prazo, tudo pode acontecer, então mantenha esse espaço aberto para que suas intenções se manifestem. Os temas de julho são: escolha e mudança, e vamos conseguir muito disso, de maneiras diferentes, neste mês.

Antes de começarmos o potencial de ação deste mês, precisamos olhar para seus temas, porque se ignorarmos esse poderoso imperativo, poderemos lutar muito mais do que precisamos diante de alguns incentivos muito poderosos para mudar a forma como fazemos escolhas e a base para a mudança que fazemos. As escolhas podem ser ter que decidir entre uma opção e outra, mas elas são muito mais do que isso. Elas são portais para novos caminhos energéticos em nossa vida.

As escolhas são portais para novos caminhos energéticos, potenciais e possibilidades em nossa vida.

Deixe que isso ocorra com cuidado, porque agora, quando fazemos escolhas, precisamos nos perguntar como elas se alinham com nossas intenções, se integram com a transformação que estamos procurando e se o caminho de energia que elas criam é aquele em que queremos estar.

O desejo de mudança é a chave que abre os portais de escolha.

Quanta mudança podemos tolerar, e o quanto estamos dispostos a perturbar nosso status quo atual determina quantas escolhas permitiremos, quão grande é o portal de escolha e a freqüência e vibração enérgica dos caminhos que permitiremos estar disponíveis para nós.

Nós ressoamos com grandes mudanças ou pequenas? Estamos prontos para uma realidade 3D / 5D totalmente integrada ou não? O caminho da ascensão continua e estamos prontos para o movimento à velocidade da luz ou estamos caminhando?

Vamos falar sobre Mercúrio retrógrado neste mês porque este começa em 26 de julho (o período de sombra começa em 11 de julho) e termina em 11 de agosto, com a sombra direta terminando em 3 de setembro. Isso cobre todo o verão, não é? Os avisos padrões  do Mercúrio retrógrado se aplicam, tenha cuidado com suas comunicações, adicione tempo extra para atrasos de viagens e não inicie novos projetos, especialmente aqueles que exigem compromissos legais ou financeiros. Eu não vi nenhum estudo, mas gostaria de saber se os casamentos concluídos sob um Mercúrio retrógrado são mais propensos a serem cancelados, atrasados ​​ou terminam em divórcio.

O Mercúrio retrógrado está em Leão, cujo regente o Sol, está envolvido em intensa atividade de eclipse pelos próximos 45 dias e Leão também rege as crianças, amor e criatividade. Então, se você está com vontade de ser criativo ou reavivar suas aspirações criativas que você afastou enquanto tinha uma carreira, criou seus filhos ou fez outras coisas em sua vida, esse Mercúrio retrógrado o ajudará a fazer  isto.

A adição de energia a este Mercúrio retrógrado é a sua oposição à Marte retrógrado em Aquário, o que pode trazer a consciência de comunidade a um foco maior. As comunidades de que somos parte, ou para as quais estamos nos encaminhando, aquelas que estamos deixando e o conhecimento ou compreensão das comunidades que não mais nos servem é intensificado. Lembre-se de que as comunidades incluem mais do que o seu bairro, cidade ou país. Isto também envolve as comunidades pessoais, tais como as famílias, filhos, amigos e parceiros. Você pode esperar ver mudanças em todas estas áreas neste mês, ou pelo menos, coisas que podem ocorrer para trazer a sua atenção para as mudanças que poderiam ser feitas.

Avancemos para os Eclipses. Há dois em Julho, no dia 13 e no dia 27, e o terceiro é no dia 11 de Agosto. Pronto para voltar ao passado, para avançar para o futuro? Estes eclipses refletem aqueles de Julho e Agosto de 1998, no grau exato. Assim, o que estava acontecendo em 1998 que está sendo refletido agora? Para mim, 1998 foi o início de minha carreira na Internet e a informática, que seria muito excitante e instável, quando eu passaria por 6 demissões em 8 anos, entre 1999 e 2007. Foi, também durante este período, em 2003, que o Arcanjo Uriel me contatou e me pediu para ser um canal para as suas mensagens. Mudanças de vida muito profundas podem acontecer em um período de eclipse.

O que foi uma bênção e um desafio em sua vida em 1998, que pode estar se repetindo agora? Que escolhas você fez em 1998 que você pode reconsiderar neste momento? Esses eclipses estão acontecendo enquanto Mercúrio está retrógrado, então isso irá acrescentar ênfase extra à revisão, reconsideração, liberação e ciclo de atualização que o período do eclipse introduz.

Muitas vezes, tentamos fazer as "melhores escolhas" e esperamos até o momento "perfeito" para agir, mas isso não funcionará agora. Precisamos agir e, em seguida, fazer as correções do curso enquanto avaliamos se estamos no caminho em que queremos estar. Estamos sempre no caminho certo e mais perfeito porque é o que está alinhado com a nossa frequência e vibração energética. Mas nós temos a opção de reconsiderar (outra palavra  de Mercúrio retrógrado) e mudarmos de idéia se decidirmos que o caminho em que estamos não está funcionando como pensávamos.

É um mês poderoso com uma forte assinatura energética, bem como um imperativo divino de começar a viver a nossa vida dentro de 100% da nossa energia. Tente evitar distrações e coisas que usem o seu tempo, energia e esforço sem um retorno correspondente para você. Não vá atrás da "vida dos seus sonhos", estabeleça a intenção para a vida que você quer e crie uma visão para que esta vida comece a se manifestar agora. Tenha um ótimo mês e lembre-se de brilhar intensamente.

Compreendemos que muitos de vocês foram condicionados a temer a mudança e o desconhecido. Mas é através dessa mudança que você continua a evoluir, expandir e se move para o que você deseja.
Você não pode curar-se sem mudança.

Encontrar um novo amor é mudar. Conectar-se com novas pessoas e paixões é mudança. Movendo-se, assim,  para melhores combinações energéticas que vem com a mudança. As coisas que você deseja manifestar só podem encontrá-lo se você permitir e aceitar a mudança.

É seguro para você avançar para o desconhecido, de fato, você continuará a avançar com muito mais conforto, facilidade e alegria se puder abraçar o desdobramento de sua mais elevada expressão de vida.

A mudança é uma ferramenta essencial para a transformação. Já é hora de liberar esse velho medo da mudança e permitir-se experimentar a alegria da expansão, pois é isso que realmente faz a sua alma cantar.

          ARCANJO GABRIEL - "ARCANJO GABRIEL RESPONDE" - 06.07.2018      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Recentemente nos perguntaram: "Como eu vejo todos nós como UM quando há tantas mágoas e danos no mundo?" Gostaríamos de abordar isso hoje.

Não muito tempo atrás, oferecemos uma mensagem diária explicando o conceito de camadas vibracionais. Pedimos que você imaginasse um prédio que contivesse um porão, um andar principal, um andar superior e um sótão.
O porão, ou camada mais baixa, era um nível de densidade vibracional. Estava escuro e desconfortável. As pessoas que vivem lá podem ter um conceito dos outros andares, mas ainda não se desligaram dessa energia o suficiente para subir as escadas. Você poderia considerar essa camada como 3D.

As pessoas que vivem no andar intermediário têm um bom conhecimento tanto da densidade do porão quanto da existência de um piso acima delas e, periodicamente, se movem entre os dois. Você pode considerar isso como 4D.

Há, ainda, as outras pessoas que ressoam com o andar superior. Estas são as pessoas que estão bem em sua jornada de iluminação. Eles estão praticando uma consciência muito maior, estão dedicados ao seu crescimento e expansão e incorporando seus eus mais elevados. Eles se lembram de sua própria natureza divina. Eles também têm acesso ao sótão, que é onde você podem encontrar os seres angelicais e mestres residentes.

Todas essas camadas diferentes existem dentro da estrutura do prédio, todas coexistindo em seus próprios níveis. Elas são parte do Todo.

Então, perguntamos a você, se o prédio pegasse fogo, você só salvaria certas pessoas com base em um certo nível de realização ou você se apressaria em salvar a todos?

Você pode se surpreender ao perceber qual seria sua primeira prioridade: você ajudaria aqueles que estão no porão, entendendo que eles estão em maior perigo, porque eles estão presos em um lugar que é mais difícil de sair. Seus instintos mostram que você tem amor incondicional em seu coração e honra a dignidade, mesmo dos aspectos mais desafiadores do Todo.

Este exemplo permite que você veja quantas camadas diferentes podem existir na totalidade do Todo, mas também como você pode ter amor e compaixão por todos os aspectos do Todo, independentemente do nível em que residem.

Este exemplo permite que você veja que apoiaria pessoas onde quer que elas estejam, pois todas são preciosas e valiosas. À medida que você continua a evoluir e a crescer, você não precisará de extremos para ver isso, mas será capaz de incorporar cada vez mais esse conhecimento em seu dia-a-dia, pois você manterá seu equilíbrio, seu amor e seu domínio com maior consistência.

Você está em resistência a si mesmo? O amor é o ato final de aceitação por si mesmo, exatamente como você é. Sair da resistência é o que permite que você ganhe mais conforto e movimento para a frente, e o seu interior é o lugar ideal para começar. É por isso que o amor próprio é uma parte tão integral do processo de iluminação.

  • The reality of Tesla's business is far more modest than the war over its stock price and market cap would suggest.
  • Tesla is ultimately a small car company operating in a small market for electric vehicles.
  • It's possible that business boredom is driving the up-and-down Tesla story.

In over a decade of covering both Tesla and the auto industry, I've never seen anything like the past 12 months. 

The feeding frenzy around Tesla has been unreal: Wall Street longs and shorts fighting it out; an intense focus on the 15-year-old company's ability to execute on the fundamentals of making cars; CEO Elon Musk flipping out on earnings call and taking to Twitter to engage in extended fracas with anybody and everybody.

At times like this, it's worth it to step back and consider some actual numbers. 

For example, Tesla delivered about 41,000 vehicles worldwide in the second quarter. I'm not even going to worry about whether they were Model S's, Model X's, or the much-vaunted and obsessively scrutinized Model 3. At this rate. Tesla should post a somewhat better year in 2018 than it did in 2017.

Tesla has also added about $200 million in revenue growth every quarter, although it shifts around; in the first quarter, the topline was $3.4 billion. There have rarely been quarterly profits, but the trendline is obvious and should continue to ascend until Tesla maxes out its existing production design (at its single assembly plant in California). If you build more cars and sell more cars, it follows that more money will flow in.

In the same period, an established automaker — General Motors — sold 760,000 vehicles in the US alone and globally brought in $36 billion in revenue. And that's just GM. The rest of the industry also moved a staggering amount of product and raked in billions in cash. 

One more data point: electric-vehicle sales increased by 50% in early 2018, bringing the EV share of the market up to a still thoroughly unimpressive 1.6%.

The numbers don't add up to what Tesla is worth

Tesla Detroit sales vs market cap

Now let's add it all up. Tesla's global sales in the second quarter were 5% of GM's sales in the US alone and a tiny fraction of overall US sales. Tesla had a nice quarter by its standards, but in the US it's moved only around 200,000 vehicles in a decade and a half (once it sells vehicle number 200,000 in the US, a $7,500 federal tax credit will begin to phase out).

On the revenue side, as long as Tesla continues to make more cars than it did in the previous quarter and sell them, it will continue to see revenue growth. The ceiling is limited only by sustainable demand for its vehicles and Tesla's production capacity.

And as far as market share goes, Tesla holds something like 30% of that quite small pie. 

You'll note that I haven't addressed the profit challenge or the cash-burn, the former being zero and the latter being in the billions. These are distractions for the more important numbers because they're givens: if you're selling 100,000 Model S and Model X luxury vehicles for an average price of $100,000, then you should be able to find a path to a margin above 10%. 

But if you aim to add something north of 200,000 in new annual production and charge less for those Model 3's, it's going to degrade the net margins and, in the short term and probably the medium term, consume billions in capital. If Toyota wanted to roll out a new affordable SUV and manufacture it at a new plant, it would be up against the same math.

OK, let's now consider Tesla's market capitalization: $53 billion. GM's is $55 billion. For what it's worth, Ferrari, which sells less than 10,000 cars a year, has a market cap of about $25 billion. If you follow my numbers, then you would logically conclude that Tesla's market cap is completely ridiculous: minuscule production plus tiny overall market doesn't compute. 

Cutting Tesla down to size

Tesla Model 3

Now for the really big BUT: revenues don't look bad at all. This is all very back-of-the-envelope, but Tesla could start to see some acceleration there and get $20 billion in the yearly take in its sights by 2019. The trick would then be to flip the massive losses to at least periodic profits, but the topline expansion could be achieved without spending a lot on additional factories. 

What we're left with is a company that, by this analysis, doesn't look to be in awful shape (although I also haven't deeply considered some balance-sheet issues, such as debt and the burdens of developing the solar and energy-storage businesses). But we're also left with a company whose stock price, although a delight for early investors, doesn't make any sense at all.

It does make sense if Tesla could somehow capture a titanic share of the existing car market. But Tesla just can't build enough vehicles to do that, and the market that it has captured a large share of could require decades to scale to a level at which EVs displace internal-combustion-powered cars. 

At root, the evident disconnect between Tesla's business, which is decent, and its stock valuation, which is silly, is simply a sign of the times. Since the financial crisis, too much easy money has been chasing too few market-beating returns. Tesla conveniently staged an IPO in 2010 and has ridden this wave. 

Bullish investors see Tesla as the next Apple (or perhaps even more) and bears think the company is a doomed quasi-Ponzi scheme that's headed for liquidation (oddly, the bankruptcy predictors never talk about Tesla going bust and then restructuring). But both camps are trapped in investor land and aren't really considering Tesla in terms of the right analogies. 

Tesla looks a lot like Saturn

Saturn Sedan

As a company, Tesla actually reminds me of Saturn, a GM division launched in the mid-1980s that sold cars via an innovative dealership channel. Saturn delivered between 200,000 and 300,000 vehicles annually from about 1993 until the years just before the GM bankruptcy.

GM's notorious, ill-fated, yet much-beloved electric car, the EV-1, was leased through Saturn stores. In the beginning, Saturn attracted a cheerfully cultlike following and minted loyal, happy owners who forged an identity not unlike what we now see among Tesla customers, minus the Musk factor.

Saturn also never made any money for GM. But for much of its existence, while it lost money it didn't lose anywhere near as mush as Tesla. Nobody ever scrupulously parsed Saturn production, either. The brand had its own factory in Tennessee and controlled between 1%-2% of US market share up until 2007.

For Tesla to live up to financial expectations, it needs to get much bigger than it now is, in terms of production and sales. This could happen if it achieves massive scale in China, where the auto market could conceivably double in size, from 20 million to 40 million in annual sales, by the middle of the century.

The rest of the world is dicier because in developed markets, sales growth is already tapped out — Tesla would have to displace numerous established players, a costly undertaking that would require even more capital spending than Tesla is already up against to expand its manufacturing capacity. 

Never say never, but I don't think this is going to happen. So somewhere between absolute failure and taking over the world, we have the Tesla reality. A small carmaker, a small market, but with the kind of historic access to capital that's created a highly fraught, financial reality-distortion field. (Musk's new pay package, more than the elevated stock price, is Exhibit A: it proposes a market cap of $650 billion, making Tesla eventually more valuable than the Detroit Big Three, Toyota, and Volkswagen combined, by a wide margin.)

Tesla madness

tesla fremont factory

So there: I've lightly crunched some numbers and offered an automotive history lesson. It wasn't necessary to muster spectacular industry flame outs, such as Preston Tucker or John DeLorean. So why the Tesla feeding frenzy? 

A big part of it is that no new car company has come along in decades, so nobody knows what's the wild, wild early days look like (although back to Saturn, which was pretty low drama by contrast). But business boredom is also a factor. The auto industry is doing great, with record sales and profits. The banking system is stable. The giants of Silicon Valley are more giant than ever. Unemployment is low. Corporations just got a huge tax cut. Tesla is the only crazy thing in this landscape, the equivalent of the Trump story in politics. 

For most people these days, automakers are also black boxes. Folks buy and lease cars all the time, but unlike with older generations, they don't much interact with vehicles outside of driving them (cars aren't designed to be tinkered with in the ways they once were, either — car companies would almost rather than owners avoid getting under the hood).

I won't say we're beset with manufacturing illiteracy because that would be too extreme, but as the car business has become more technologically advanced, a broader understanding of how the industry works has eroded. And this has happened at the same time that Tesla arrived on the scene. That, in turn, has distorted expectations for the company because being a new player and going from zero cars built to over 100,000 every year is incredibly difficult. 

Basically, nearly everybody who has tried to do what Tesla is doing has failed. So it's understandable that the debate and discussion around the company has become unreal. Tesla's ongoing existence, to put it bluntly, defies reality. 

But that isn't an excuse for allowing Tesla to become a subject of fantasy or baseless speculation. There is actually a middle ground, and that's where Tesla should rightly be.

NOW WATCH: The best and worst things about the Tesla Model 3

          AT&T had a secret reason for wanting to get its hands on Time Warner – it wants to use 5G to get more people to watch TV shows while riding in self-driving cars      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Lyft self-driving car

  • Warner Media CEO John Stankey told HBO employees that 5G and autonomous vehicles is an opportunity to get more content in front of consumers.
  • The conversation was part of an internal town hall that leaked to the media.
  • Stankey predicts that individuals will consume an hour  to an hour and a half more content over the course of the next four years.

AT&T has its eyes squarely set on competing with Netflix.

That much was clear during a recent town-hall event where Warner Media CEO John Stankey addressed 150 HBO employees about the upcoming year.

But Stankey revealed a pair of unexpected motivations for AT&T's acquisition of Time Warner: 5G and autonomous vehicles.

Responding to a question about why 5G matters, Stankey took the time to talk about self-driving cars, according to a transcript of the event that Recode published.

"It does things like it opens up the ability for autonomous vehicles, vehicles that are self-driving," Stankey said. "Why do you care about vehicles that are self-driving? If you’re not driving yourself to and from work to and from Los Angeles anymore, you can sit in the back seat and let the vehicle take you, what do you get? You get another hour or two hours to consume great content that you build every day."

5G is the fifth — and next — generation of wireless technology. Its expected to deliver faster speed than the current 4G LTE standard, and allow for "internet of things" deployments.  Stankey sees this as a boon to content providers.

5G may create brand new media time for consumers

"So now you start to think about why am I bullish on building more content?," Stankey said. "Well, I think that the average number of hours that an individual consumes in a given day might actually increase somewhere in the range of an hour to an hour and a half over the course of the next four years because of that shift."

AT&T doesn't want consumers spending those additional hours on Facebook, Stankey said. It wants to build a product that draws prolonged engagement from consumers, and HBO will help it get there. But to get there, HBO needs to transform, offering bigger and broader content to boost customers' engagement, he said at the event.

That approach is a step in the right direction for AT&T's business model, Daniel Ives, the chief strategy officer at GBH Insights, told Business Insider. He noted that media companies that produce content will be busy in the upcoming year.

The next 12 to 18 months will be a "content arms race," Ives said.

NOW WATCH: 5 science facts that 'Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom' totally ignored

          A third of Facebook’s ad revenue growth now comes from Instagram — and it couldn't come at a better time (FB)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

mark zuckerberg facebook

  • Morgan Stanley analysts think Wall Street is still underestimating how much Facebook can grow.
  • In a research note, analysts at the investment bank set the stock a new price target of $215.
  • It's an abrupt turnaround from just a few months ago, when Facebook's share price was getting pummeled in the aftermath of the Cambridge Analytica scandal. And it may be largely due to Instagram.


Facebook's reputation has been battered by the Cambridge Analytica scandal, but Facebook's business is humming. One big reason: Instagram. 

The photo-sharing app is turning into an increasingly important money-maker for Facebook.

According to the estimates of  Morgan Stanley analyst Brian Nowak, Instagram will account for 36% of Facebook total ad revenue growth in the second quarter. In a research note published on Tuesday, Nowak reckons that ads on Instagram will bring in $3.8 billion in revenue in Q2, and as much as $4.5 billion in Q4. 

That's especially important as Facebook's flagship social media service continues to experience a slowdown in the growth of its "ad load" — the number of ads that Facebook inserts into the newsfeed. 

The ad load slowdown within Facebook is very deliberate; the company is wary of turning consumers off by barraging them with too many ads. Luckily, Facebook has Instagram and its relatively un-monetized fields of content to pick up the slack. 


instagram revenue

And whatever reputational damage Facebook's brand may be suffering, Instagram is more popular than ever with consumers.  The service recently crossed the 1 billion user milestone, and Morgan Stanley notes that the app's active user growth "inflected" in Q2, as Instagram added 750,000 users per day. 

The upshot: The investment bank is pegging its price target for Facebook's stock, which is currently floating around $203, at $215 — and suggests in a best-case scenario it could go as high as $245.

"We believe the Street is still underestimating FB's ability to grow even as ad load slows," Nowak writes. 

Facebook doesn't (yet) break out financial results for Instagram, so it's tough to know precisely how big of a contributor it is. But we'll get a sense about how it's doing by assessing the results of Facebook's overall business when it reports its Q2 earnings on July 25.

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

vertical garden and Green wall at Singapore airport

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

          GM's $2 billion deal with a Japanese tech giant may give the automaker a big advantage in the race to develop self-driving cars (GM)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Cruise Automation

  • GM's $2.25-billion SoftBank investment in the Cruise division has given the company equity value that it can use to attract new talent.
  • Cruise has grown dramatically since GM bought it in 2016. What started as a 40-employee startup now has 800 people working it.
  • GM President Dan Ammann said that another leg of significant growth is on the way as Cruise heads into commercialization in 2019.

In May, General Motors announced that the Vision Fund of Japan's SoftBank would invest $2.25 billion the carmaker's Cruise self-driving division.

GM kicked in an additional $1.1 billion, bringing the total funding to $3.35 billion and giving Cruise a stand-alone value of $11.5 billion. GM acquired Cruise in 2016 for about $600 million, with follow-on growth expenditure bringing the total deal up to $1 billion.

In an interview with Business Insider, GM President Dan Ammann explained why the carmaker pursued the SoftBank investment. 

"We'd been talking to them for a pretty extended period of time," Ammann said. "They'd done a lot of work on the autonomous-vehicle space and a lot of work on us. So there's a very robust foundation to this alignment."

"This wasn’t a show-up and 'Here’s some money' kind of thing," he said.

GM has been steadily profitable since its 2010 IPO, bringing over $70 billion while executing an aggressive share-repurchase program under CEO Mary Barra. The company has also paid a dividend to offset a stock price that's been flat relative to the overall markets. And GM has plenty of cash on hand. 

But Ammann pointed out that the SoftBank investment identified a new value-generator inside the company, which will turn 110 years-old in September.

"To have SoftBank come in and make that bet tells you something about what they see in terms of the opportunity, because they are not investing in an $11-billion valuation to see it go to $13 billion."

"For the Cruise team, this creates some equity currency that we can use to attract talent, and that's a big deal and a big part of why we did it," he continued. 

"We've grown the team from 40 people to nearly 800, and we've got another huge leg of growth to go. It was becoming clear to us that by not having that kind of currency available, we were handicapping ourselves. We’ve seen already in a couple of weeks people resurfacing who hadn’t signed up, so there’s anecdotal, but early evidence, that’s going to be a big deal in attracting people."

GM Cruise Automation Chevy Bolt

Ammann also indicated that the investment provides GM with flexibility in the event of a US market downturn, which many industry observers think is overdue after three straight years to record-setting or near-record sales.

"The deal creates this currency that we can use to raise capital through a separate channel for the [Cruise] business. We didn't want to end up in a situation where we've launched commercially, where we want to go to maximum scale, and that business needs a lot of capital at a time when the mainline business is under pressure."

Ultimately, GM's approach to the Cruise deal and to the latest investment demonstrates how significant of a player the old-economy stalwart has become in the new-economy world of Silicon Valley and high-tech entrepreneurship. The SoftBank investment effectively revealed eleven "unicorns" — Valley-speak for billion-dollar companies yet to stage IPOs — within GM.

Ammann said he is pleased with how the original deal has progressed.

"The typical thing would be 'big company buys startup and screws it up,'" he said.

But GM has given Cruise and CEO Kyle Vogt abundant autonomy and put the right people on both sides of the relationship to manage Cruise's development.

As a result, Cruise is now worth over 1o times what GM paid for it and it could be a model for how established companies can acquire, integrate, and grow startups.

NOW WATCH: Chevy has built a $37.5K all-electric car capable of a 238-mile range

          Airbus has taken over and renamed the Canadian jet that Boeing tried to keep out of the US      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Airbus A220 300 new member of the airbus Single aisle Family

  • The Bombardier C Series has officially been renamed the Airbus A220.
  • Airbus completed a deal earlier this month to acquire 50.1% of the C Series program, with Bombardier and the Quebec government remaining minority shareholders.
  • The CS100 is now the A220-100, while the CS300 has been renamed the A220-300. 

The Bombardier C Series is no more.

On Tuesday, the Canadian airliner was officially renamed the Airbus A220 in a ceremony at the European airplane maker's headquarters in Toulouse, France.

"Everyone at Airbus has been looking forward to this historic moment," Guillaume Faury, the president of Airbus' commercial-aircraft division, said in a statement. "Today, we are thrilled to welcome the A220 to the Airbus family and are honored to see it wearing its new Airbus colors for the first time."

Faury also praised the hard work put in by employees of Bombardier, based in Quebec, to bring the 100-to-150-seat A220 to market.

Bombardier C Series 100

The A220 will continue to be available in two variants: The CS100 is now the A220-100, while the larger CS300 is now the A220-300.

This is the second time the aircraft has been renamed. Before the CS100 and CS300 designations, the planes were known as the CS110 and the CS130.

Earlier this month, Airbus completed a deal to acquire 50.1% of the financially challenged C Series program, with Bombardier and the Quebec government remaining minority shareholders. Airbus made no up-front financial investment in the C Series but will provide its procurement, marketing, sales, and customer-support expertise.

Airbus also indicated that A220 production would take place at its plant in Mobile, Alabama.

When the deal was announced in October, Bombardier was mired in a trade dispute with Boeing and under threat from a proposed 299.45% tariff by the US Commerce Department.

The dispute came about when Boeing alleged that its business was hurt by Delta Air Lines' 2016 order for 75 C Series jets because the planes' unfairly low prices were possible only with the assistance of Canadian government subsidies.

Airbus Bombardier C Series Partnership 007

In January, the US International Trade Commission struck the down the proposed tariff, ending the dispute.

The A220 moniker allows Airbus to market the C Series with a name that's in line with the rest of its lineup.

The renaming of an airliner is far from a common occurrence, but it has happened before. Following Boeing's 1997 merger with McDonnell Douglas, the MD-95 became the Boeing 717-200.

The Airbus A220 is in operation with Swiss International Air Lines, airBaltic, and Korean Air.

NOW WATCH: A Nobel Prize-winning economist says 'non-competes' are keeping wages down for all workers

          Innovative-Forests-Bond-Issued-to-Unlock-Private-Financing-for-Forest-Protection-      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
London/Sydney/Arlington, Va. USA– A first-of-its-kind Forests Bond, developed in conjunction with Conservation International (CI) and BHP Billiton, was issued today by the International Finance Corporation (IFC), a member of the World Bank Group. The Bond offers investors the choice of a cash coupon or a coupon in the form of forest carbon credits from an iconic REDD+ project.

The IFC Forests Bond supports the Kasigau Corridor REDD Project in Kenya, implemented by Wildlife Works Carbon LLC, which works to prevent deforestation and creates alternative income opportunities. CI is providing input to BHP Billiton with respect to conservation and REDD+ matters and will facilitate the exchange of lessons learned and best practices on REDD+ projects. 

“CI helps build the global system that makes forests more valuable when they’re standing than when they’re cut,” said Agustin Silvani, Vice President, CI’s Conservation Finance Division. “We are pleased to see the successful issuance of this innovative instrument and will continue to work with business and community leaders to develop more sustainable forest protection models.” 

Each year, the world loses around 5.5 million hectares of tropical forest—an area approximately the size of Costa Rica—and deforestation accounts for nearly 20% of global greenhouse gas emissions caused by humans, comparable to the emissions from all of the cars and trucks on Earth combined. Protecting forests is critical to achieving the global climate commitment of keeping the global warming under 2 degrees Celsius. 

“To do that, we need to mobilize $75 billion to $300 billion in the next decade and much of this needs to come from the private sector,” said Jingdong Hua, IFC Vice President and Treasurer. “The IFC Forests Bond demonstrates that innovative capital market mechanisms can be a powerful way to channel private sector funds into forest protection in emerging markets.” 

Developed with the support of BHP Billiton—who provides a price support mechanism that ensures the Kasigau Corridor REDD+ Project can sell the necessary amount of carbon credits until the Bond matures—the Bond is listed on the London Stock Exchange.
