          President Erdogan takes tips from Putin in targeting dissidents abroad      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
What happened?

On 14 March 2018, Prime Minister Theresa May announced the expulsion of 23 Russian diplomats after Russia refused to explain how a Russian-made nerve agent was used in the poisoning of ex-Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia Skripal, in Salisbury, England on 4 March 2018. Britain, the US, Germany and France have released a joint statement deploring the Salisbury poisoning as an “assault on UK sovereignty” and emphasised that such intervention is a “breach of international law”.

Russia is notorious for targeting those who have fallen afoul of the Kremlin. There is a long list of cases where Russia’s dissidents and renegade spies have fallen ill or died under suspicious circumstances. Similarly, Turkey’s Erdogan regime has been systematically targeting dissidents abroad through criminal activities.

On 4 March 2018, Reuters reported that Switzerland is investigating a plot in which Turkish diplomats planned to drug and kidnap a Swiss-Turkish businessman, believed to be affiliated with the Hizmet Movement. The Office of the Attorney General in Switzerland confirmed a criminal case is being conducted into political intelligence gathering and prohibited acts towards a foreign state.

This latest plot joins the long list of Hizmet participants who have been illegally targeted by the Erdogan regime in the aftermath of the July 15 coup attempt.

What does this mean?
  • The Turkish government has been systematically using a variety of methods to target Hizmet participants outside Turkey.
  • After the July 15 coup attempt, the Turkish government set up a telephone hotline so that people can report Hizmet participants.Text messages and social media posts were used to incite people to inform on Hizmet participants and others deemed critical of the Erdogan regime.
  • On 4 August 2016, Turkey’s state-run news agency published an infographic targeting Hizmet inspired people and foundations in the UK, linking them to terrorism.
  • On 13 March 2018, Germany launched an investigation into the controversial group called Osmanen Germania BC on the grounds that the group is reportedly involved in violent crime and has ties to the Turkish government and Turkish National Intelligence (MIT).
  • Stockholm Center for Freedom documented an increasing number of cases of abductions and enforced disappearances by the Turkish government of the Erdogan regime’s critics. Most of the victims are believed to be Hizmet participants.
  • The Turkish-Islamic Union for Religious Affairs (DITIB), Germany’s largest Islamic organisation, has admitted that some of its imams have acted as informants for the Turkish government.
  • A pro-government Turkish journalist, Cem Küçük, said that the Turkish intelligence (MIT) has the authorisation to conduct operations abroad and many overseas Turks are willing to carry out assassinations on behalf of MIT.
  • In March 2017, Switzerland had launched a criminal investigation into foreign spying on the country’s Turkish community by Ankara.
  • In May 2017, a Turkish-origin school principal and two businessmen of Turkish origin were abducted in Malaysia, to be forcefully taken to Turkey.
  • In November 2017, in the US, an investigation was instigated into the activities of ex-Trump aide Michael Flynn for an alleged plan to kidnap Fethullah Gülen in return for $15m.
  • In a report on the diaspora politics of Turkey in the UK, the Turkey Institute, a London-based research centre, concluded that “there are illegal activities conducted by the Turkish state which target dissidents of the regime abroad often through means of labelling people by creating lists, sometimes kidnapping individuals, and even assassinating Turkish-/Kurdish-origin political dissidents living abroad, resulting in a generation of fear among the diaspora.”
  • In its latest report published on 20 March 2018, the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights suggested that Turkey should ‘promptly end the state of emergency and restore the normal functioning of institutions and the rule of law’, and ‘rescind passport cancellation orders and deprivation of citizenship procedures, and enable full freedom of movement’.

Dr Ismail Mesut Sezgin, Director of the Centre for Hizmet Studies, said:
Turkey has been aggressively transferring its domestic politics abroad and mobilising the Turkish diaspora in direct and indirect forms via diplomatic agents, religious officials, and politically driven NGOs. Unfortunately, such practices have led to an increasing number of cases of abductions, attacks, incidents of hate speech, abuses, threats and profiling of dissident groups, including the Hizmet Movement. The gradual erosion of fundamental human rights, President Erdogan’s authoritarian practices, and his aggressive foreign policy choices are often likened to the Putin regime. However, it appears that President Erdogan also takes tips from the Putin regime in targeting its critics abroad to send a message to those who dare to dissent.

          American Migration: Exploring Where People Move Across America      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Just a few years ago, experts indicated Americans (especially young Americans) were more interested in a different lifestyle than previous generations. Instead of owning a house in the suburbs, the new American dream consisted of renting an apartment in the city.

Recently, though, Americans of all ages have begun to leave major metropolitan areas like New York City and Los Angeles. Over the last five years, population growth in big cities has shrunk, and people are packing up and moving again.

But where are they going now? We analyzed census data from the last five years to explore the counties and states where the most people are putting down roots. Let's take a look.




































Living just a train ride away from Manhattan or a few hours from the Santa Monica Pier or Golden Gate Bridge might sound like the life—and for some people, it is—but people may now be looking elsewhere to settle down.

This graphic helps illustrate which U.S. states have seen the highest net migration, both in and out, between 2011 and 2016. As you can see, states in the Northeast saw a larger negative net migration, while Southern states had a strong influx of newcomers.

Additionally, states with some of the most popular metropolitan areas, including New York, California, and Illinois, had substantial negative net migration as well.




































"There's no place like home" is meant to convey that even when you live somewhere else, you'll always have a certain fondness for your home. That is unless you can find someplace better.

From the data, we learned there was actually quite a lot of back and forth between state borders. While a majority of people moving to the West Coast (including Utah, Washington, and Oregon) came from California, people from these states typically relocated to California as well. Similarly, people living in states like New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Louisiana generally moved from Texas, but people from these same states were also more likely to relocate to Texas.

It's no wonder, though, states like Texas and California continue to be popular destinations considering their successful employment rates. Of course, some states also come with a fairly hefty price tag. California and New York may have great job markets, but they also have the highest costs of living in the U.S. Looking to buy a home in California? The median home price is over $537,000—compared to roughly $213,000 across the country.




































So if some states are losing residents in droves, where are they going?

For New Yorkers looking to leave behind the cold winters, high costs of living, and stagnant wages, there's only one place to go: Florida. With its world-famous beaches and low personal income tax rate, Florida was the most popular destination state for people leaving states like New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Michigan.

Even Californians are leaving the West Coast for Southern hospitality. In the past five years, an average of over 25,000 people left California for Texas. The tech industry has been relatively successful in certain parts of Texas, but unlike California, you won't have to give up the majority of your salary to afford rent.

Nevada, Arizona, and Oregon were other popular destinations for people looking to relocate from California. While Florida certainly sees its fair share of new residents, more than 9,400 people have left Florida to call Texas home since 2011.




































The sunshine and celebrity sightings might be nice, but it costs a lot of money to live in Los Angeles. Where the average rent for a one-bedroom apartment is over $2,000, buying a home can set you back an average of $740,000, and even frugal spenders should expect to spend $500 or more a month on groceries. The cost of living might also help to explain why nearly 6,900 people have left Los Angeles for Clark County, Nevada.

Every year, thousands of people give up their daily commutes on the 405 for the dry heat of Nevada, home to the University of Nevada, Mesquite, Boulder City, and Las Vegas. In Clark County, the median home price is less than $203,000, and a positive job growth means there's plenty of opportunity for those looking to escape the big city life.

In Cook County, Illinois (the second most populated county in the U.S. after Los Angeles and home to Chicago), almost 5,600 people have left for Lake County, Indiana.

Thousands of people have also decided to leave Washington, D.C. Whether it's the congested roadways, cost of living, or job opportunities, many have made their way to Prince George's or Montgomery counties in Maryland from D.C.




































In some cases, people have left areas like California, New York, and Washington, D.C., almost as fast as they've moved into them. Only a few states have seen a much faster exodus than growth.

Between 2011 and 2016, nearly 11 percent of Alaskan residents moved out of state, although there was less than 6 percent growth to replace their presence. This marks the first time in decades that Alaska's population has shrunk, further compounding the state's economic strife. Since 2012, over 29,000 more people have moved from than moved to Alaska, and nearby states like Washington and California have become much more attractive to residents.

However, many states are seeing the opposite effect. Despite the expense, more people moved to than from California between 2011 and 2016, New York saw hardly any change in its population, and a higher percentage of people moved to than from Washington, D.C., over the same period.




































Millennials are shaking things up. Whether it's the way they shop, eat, or approach money, young Americans aren't following in the footsteps of generations past—and that even includes their jobs.

Studies have shown millennials aren't afraid to do two things uncommon for older generations: jump from job to job and move from place to place. Considering relocating appeals to young employees, it's no wonder the highest percentages of people crossing state borders were millennials.

Seven percent of people aged 18 to 19 moved between states from 2011 to 2016. The next largest moving age groups were between 20 and 24 and 25 to 29. But where did they go? States like California and Florida were more likely to be the new homes of Americans aged 70 to 74, while young movers were more inclined to move to states like Utah, Wyoming, Alaska, and Illinois.

Coming or going?

When it comes to deciding where you want to live, there are many factors to consider aside from the location. As we found, the cost of living, job market, and industry trends likely play an important role in whether Americans pick up and move. Thousands of people do it every year though, including New Yorkers leaving the Northeast for Florida and Californians relocating to Nevada.

Methodology

Using the U.S. Census Bureau County-to-County Migration Flows data, we analyzed where people moved to and from across the United States. We utilized the 2011-2015 Migration Flows data, which are the most up to date at the time of this writing. We looked at net migration unless otherwise stated, which shows the net gain or loss for a location-to-location flow. This is not indicative of the number of people who left the location, though. Since Census data relies solely on estimates, the figures presented above may not be inclusive of all migration.

KELLY CALDWELL

Overnight, someone left three fat softballs in the dog run in Tompkins Square Park, and this morning, the dogs are delirious with joy. A few skirmishes break out, but for the most part, the dogs just play. They tug-of-war, and take turns “losing.” They catch a softball and then coyly entice one another to chase. They race back and forth in pairs or clumps of three, shoulders bumping, fetching and catching, til all of their long, pink tongues are drooping out the sides of their mouths.
     In New York City, people avoid eye contact and don’t talk much to one another in public spaces, but in the Tompkins Square Park dog run, on early weekday mornings, it’s different. We talk. We know each other’s names, not just the dogs’. Usually, we move around, following our dogs, sipping hot drinks and chatting with whoever we’re nearest to.
     Today, though, we’re knitted together at one end of the run. The only thing on anyone’s mind is the news: More than 2,000 migrant children separated from their parents at the U.S. borders. It’s a firestorm that’s been raging for four days. We ruminate over the details: The audio released on Monday by ProPublica—seven minutes of children wailing, calling for Mami or Papa, and one clear, small voice repeating her aunt’s phone number again, and again. The ever-shifting and inadequate attempts by Administration officials to justify the policy. The lawsuit revealing that some children were subdued with powerful psychiatric drugs.
     We pause for a moment. A dissonance hangs over us, between the comic antics of our dogs and the heaviness in the air.
     It’s the stupid, pink dog dish all over again, I’m thinking.
     Three days ago, in my Advanced Memoir class, we talked about the subjective lens of the narrator, and a passage from Story Genius by Lisa Cron: “After all, we know from personal experience that when something genuinely horrid is going on, it’s always with us, no matter how much we pretend it isn’t. It not only filters everything we see, it tells us what to look for.”
     No matter what is happening in the scene, I told my students, you have to get the deeper emotion onto the page. The examples I gave were comparatively low-stakes: how after your first break-up, just buying your morning bagel was searing and poignant because it was your first break-up bagel.
     The example I did not give, but that I was thinking about, was of another morning in Tompkins Square Park, nine months earlier. My dog Pops and I had left the run, and stopped near the rose bushes so I could give him a drink before heading home. While I pulled out a water bottle and a hot pink collapsible dog dish from my bag, I was listening to NPR report that, in the wake of Hurricane Maria, more than half the people in Puerto Rico didn’t have clean water. In desperation, Puerto Ricans had reopened wells that were closed because of superfund-level contamination; they were drinking water mixed with untreated sewage. Water-borne diseases were breaking out, and health officials were worried about cholera.
     Puerto Rican men, women, and children are at risk of cholera, I thought, and I’m pouring filtered water into a pink, plastic dish for my dog.
     I’m not apologizing for watering a thirsty animal. That’s my responsibility. It is also someone’s responsibility to bring clean water to Puerto Rico.
     That was October, and still, every time I pull out that stupid pink bowl, I remember it. I’m thinking about it again, this morning, as Pops and I leave the run and I take out the dish. Thankfully, I’m interrupted, because we bump into Kate, a work colleague and a poet. She and I are both a bit sheepish at first, because she’s in workout clothes and I’m in grubby dog run clothes, but we get over it pretty quickly, partly because Pops is mugging and wriggling for her attention, but also partly because we’re genuinely delighted to see each other. “I can’t believe we’ve lived this close to each other all this time!” she says.
     That’s another thing I love about this park. In the heart of Manhattan’s East Village, it’s a magnet that draws in everyone. As Kate and I chat, there’s a teenage girl, possibly a runaway, panhandling for change, while nearby, parents in expensive suits and shoes lead backpack-laden kids to the bus stop. An older Hispanic man wheels a giant speaker past us—he’s a fixture here. He’ll set up near the basketball courts and blast salsa music for hours. The benches are all dotted with people in coveralls or khakis or sapphire blue blazers, eating egg sandwiches, drinking coffee, and scrolling on their phones, a few moments of quiet before heading to work.
     At my work, it’s a day of meeting, talking, and teaching. I interview a teaching candidate who wrote and illustrated a charming and funny picture book about a mouse and a chipmunk fighting over an acorn. Lesson? Learn to share. One of our interns wants to write an op-ed about the treatment of women in the music industry, and we work together to develop her ideas. I trade emails with my friend and fellow teacher Mary, who I haven’t seen since April, when she got hit by a car. She gives me an update on her shattered leg, and I tell her how much everyone at the office misses her.
     I’m running late to dinner, but I take a big, blue CitiBike down the Hudson River Parkway anyway. I don’t want to risk being even later because of a subway delay, but also, I want to take in the sunset. I’m not the only one with that idea—the paths are crowded with New Yorkers jogging and strolling and biking, and I have to pay extra close attention, because everyone’s eyes are trained on the river. Tonight, the sunset really is that beautiful.
     Dinner is a celebration. After two years of working in DC, our friend Indrani  found a great job back home in New York City, and she and her wife Dina are finally living under the same roof again. They got married last August and after their honeymoon, they rode separate trains to separate homes. Commuter relationships put a strain on both partners, and though Dina and Indrani handled it well, my husband and I could see it wearing on them. You can acknowledge your privilege all day long—we’re lucky we can afford two apartments, they’d say; we’re lucky to have such great support, they’d say—but when you’re exhausted because you got up at 4a.m. to take a three-hour train ride to work, you’re exhausted. When you yearn for someone, you yearn for them.
     Kent and I are thrilled that this separation is over, and selfishly, we’re thrilled that we’ll get to see our friends more often now. Indrani’s office is not far from mine, and we talk about meeting for lunch or after work in Bryant Park, a swath of green behind the New York Public Library, the branch with the stone lions.
     When our drinks come, we raise our glasses and all four of us toast at once. “Welcome home, Indrani!” I say. “Here’s to good friends and more good times together,” Dina says. “Well done, Indrani,” Kent says.
     Indrani chimes in last. “Here’s to being together,” she says, her voice thick with emotion.
     It brings everything to a screeching halt, and for one long moment, we gaze at one another, anguished. We will carry on with our celebrating, but all evening, thrumming beneath everything, is one, insistent thought: It’s not a privilege, being with the people you love. Or, it shouldn’t be. 
     At home, Kent and I find that Pops has soiled the living room floor. After more than two years of good behavior, he’s insulted the rug three times in just the last week. It’s been a busy week, and Pops has been home alone a little more than usual. “He might be a bit too accustomed to having you around,” I say to Kent as we clean up.
     But secretly, I sympathize. When your people are missing, you’ve got to do something.

LAWRENCE LENHART 

DO

I peek over the wife-shaped hump in the bed, see the baby monitor lit green. Our eleven-month-old son is standing in his crib, his fingers curled around the rungs. We had decided the night before that I would be the one to wake with him this morning.

THINK

This is a good system, deciding on these sorts of things the night before as it prevents the kind of pleading, arguing, groveling that happened during the first months (e.g., “I did it the last two days. Will you get him today?” “I didn’t get to bed until late. I need more sleep.” “I fed him twice last night. Will you please step the fuck up?”).

DO

I alternate between sleepy eyes as I change his diaper, throw it in the pail, remind myself I need to change the bag SOON.

DO

In the kitchen, I make a bowl of cereal for myself (Trader Joe’s Vanilla Almond) and prepare a goblet of Cheerios (no milk) for Milo. That’s my son.

DO

I set him on the floor in the living room and surround him with his favorite toys. He smiles at me like he’s just hit the jackpot. Like he might be spoiled. I turn on The Vietnam War. I’m only 6.5 hours into the 18-hour Ken Burns documentary.

THINK

I am watching it because 1) it’s summer and I have the time; 2) it fits into my ritualist disenchantment process with America; and 3) my wife just discovered (through Ancestry.com) that she has a half-Vietnamese uncle. Apparently, her grandfather had an affair during the war. After some encouragement from his Amerasian friends, her half-uncle signed up for an Ancestry account and discovered his half-sister (my mother-in-law).

THINK

There’s this one thread that’s not working concerning Denton Crocker Jr. (aka Mogie). I see what Burns is trying to do with his story, and maybe that’s the problem. It’s a Stalinesque maneuver: a single death is a tragedy/a million deaths is a statistic. Oh, wait: spoiler alert.

DO

I look up the wonderfully mimetic word ‘loblolling’ after a Vietnam veteran uses it to describe bombs descending toward the earth, toward his platoon.

DO

Milo has recently been fascinated with a martyoshka-style book. There are ten cubes total, and the walls of each cube are illustrated (with a snake, a saguaro, a cactus wren).

THINK

I worry that if he gnaws the smallest one too much, he will deface it beyond recognition and I won’t remember what it says when he’s verbal and asks, “What did it use to say?”

DO

I take a picture of each side of the cube just in case. Milo crawls away, and I pull him back by his leg. He crawls away again, and I pull. He cracks up.

DO

Milo and I take the tortoise to the backyard. I fill his bath with water from the hose. I admire the bath that I’ve created. It’s an inverted RV skylight filled with landscaping rocks, positioned in a dry stream in the backyard.

THINK

I worry there is too much pine pitch in the bath. I think I read tortoises can die if they ingest sap.

DO

The tortoise excuses himself from the bath and begins wandering through the yard. I hoist Milo to the bells we’ve hung from branches in the tree. We walk from bell to bell. I call it Bell Walk (a pun after Sedona’s Bell Rock). I ask him if he remembers when we bought these bells at Byodo-In Temple in Oahu. These at the Ferry Building in San Francisco. These in—I don’t remember where we got these.

DO

My wife wakes up. I give her a kiss. She wrinkles her nose in resistance because she hasn’t brushed her teeth yet. While she feeds Milo, I go for a run. I run across the cul-de-sac, down the mulch trail to the paved trail, along the paved trail past the park and into the designated “open space,” which is a ponderosa meadow. I cross the road to the trail’s extension (1.0 mile), all the way to the airport (1.74 miles). I turn around, facing the mountain now, and do my best to negative split. My IT band begins hurting, a years-old injury that I can’t seem to overcome. I check my time at the 5K (a sluggish 26:31).

THINK

While running, I start daydreaming about when I used to run in high school. I think about our rivals, Latrobe High—alma mater of Arnold Palmer and Fred Rogers. I wonder if their coach was really as shrewd as we made him out to be. It’s the coach’s responsibility to walk the visiting team all around the 3.1-mile course before the meet. I am remembering the time he gave us the wrong directions. I turned right and had to backtrack, which cost us the match. We assumed he did it on purpose, but maybe he didn’t. I think I am finally coming to peace with this defeat now, twelve years later. It is as cathartic as it is pathetic.

DO

I finish the run. On a boulder at the end of my driveway, I sit and analyze the splits on my running app.

DO

We leave the house as a family. Go to coffee, lunch, the playground, Walgreen’s. We need to kill two hours while the cleaners do their thing.

META

(At this point, I feel the need to defend this very bourgeois sentence. But I don’t feel like it this time.)

SUMMARY

Coffee highlight: none.

Lunch highlight: the men behind us—workers on their lunch break—speak English until six police enter the building, at which point they begin speaking in mostly Spanish. I tell Andie I need to wash my hands before we leave. I look at myself in the mirror in the bathroom and can’t work myself up to smile. I cry a little bit. Because there’s no line as I cross the counter on the way back, I decide to buy a $1 sugar cone. I hand it to Andie who shares it with Milo. I congratulate myself on being a good father, good husband. 

THINK

There was a time in my life when I thought sharing an ice cream cone with other mouths was the ultimate repulsion.

SUMMARY

Playground highlights: A man locks his car with a padlock and tries to make Milo laugh by putting a cup in his mouth like a beak. Milo doesn’t laugh. We forgot the sunscreen, so Milo has to stay mostly in the shade. There are drums and xylophones and chimes on the playground. Andie picks up the mallets and begins playing. She used to be in the drum pit in high school. Milo smiles as she plays. I smile too. We’ve been together for six years, but she still finds new ways to entertain me.

SUMMARY

Walgreen’s highlight: They changed her birth control on her again. We curse at the misogyny of it. My prescription isn’t ready. I worry that I’ll be wheezing in Belize. I say it aloud: “I’ll be wheezing in Belize.” Andie replies: “I won’t let that happen to you.” She is so emphatic and protective, it makes us both laugh. Her tone was clearly accidental. She immediately calls our GP and reups my prescription.

THINK

It would have taken me at least 3 days to make that call on my own.

DO

Because we haven’t quite killed two hours, we decide to look for houses for Andie’s parents who are thinking about moving to Flagstaff. We discover a new neighborhood in Flagstaff and drive laps around it, three times. We find “the perfect house” for them, but then discover there are phone lines criss-crossing over the backyard. Andie’s dad will veto. It’s no longer the perfect house.

DO

Milo is sleeping in the carseat. We have a mirror attached to the back-center headrest that reflects his activities back to the rearview mirror. I wave to him, and he waves back, choppily. When he falls asleep, I peek at him. My new car tells me: “Driver Attention is Low.” Fuck that. I’m paying attention.

DO

“Do you not want your Father’s Day card?” Andie asks. I tell her I do. “Then why did you put it with the old mail?” I remind her I was just consolidating stacks of paper the day before when my friend Mia came over. I go to the bathroom.

META

(Come to think of it, I must have gone to the bathroom earlier too. I just didn’t record it. Not paying attention after all.)

THINK

Here, I am reminded of Georges Perec’s Species of Spaces. I think about this one exercise in the book, very similar to this “What Happened on June 21” series, in which a family wakes up and goes through their morning routines. The woman is running around, trying to help her husband get on his way to work with pressed clothes and a good breakfast. She does the same for the son. It’s very suburban. Just like us, I suppose. And then, the surveillance-style narrator reports that in her first moment alone, the woman goes to the WC and “performs her toilet.” No matter how objective the narration is, I think it’s supposed to be comical. You have to read it.

DO

Andie calls her parents. She yells at her mom because her dad is so picky about the housing. I FaceTime my mom, and she and Milo spend a few minutes waving at each other.

DO

Andie watches television (The Bachelor) while she plays with Milo. Halfway in, she says, “I don’t think I’m going to watch this show anymore.” She’s been saying that for the past four seasons, maybe more. I work on my book proposal. It’s the boring part of the book proposal where I’m supposed to compare my proposed book to other titles on the market. I spend a lot of time trying to find a less specific word for “doudouism,” or at least one with a less French connotation. It leads me to an essay by Frantz Fanon. I download a couple essays by Epeli Hau’ofa, read them. Wish I had the whole book. ILL it. I encounter Jane McAdam’s name on several texts.

THINK

I would like to meet Jane McAdam someday, ideally in a casual setting like, “Oh, you’re Jane McAdam? That’s cool. I really like your ideas. I just ordered a caipirinha. Would you like something as well?”

THINK AGAIN

I wonder if this sounds like I’m trying to pick her up. I’m not. I decide she’ll decide for herself.

DO

Andie pauses the television, and asks, “Is that a tear?” The man currently on a one-on-one (date) with the bachelorette is talking about his divorce. He is being unusually vulnerable. I look at his glistening cheek and confirm that he is, in fact, crying. She continues watching the show.

THINK

Because my friend Joe spoiled the show for me (“So, how about I was with Carly the other night and she told me that X wins the Bachelor?” he texted), I don’t have to pretend to care about the evolving chemistry of the bachelorette and her misbehaved contestants. At the time, I chastised Joe, but now I think I should thank him.

DO

With the show over and the book proposal nearly finished, we take turns getting ready. We are going on a date tonight—our first in months. I text the babysitter’s mom with some details. They live across the street. I put Gillian Welch on shuffle (Spotify). We are going to the Gillian Welch concert tonight. I text my uncle one of the songs: “Here is a song by the musician we’re seeing tonight. It reminds me of something you would like. Very Appalachian,” I say. Andie puts on an olive romper-style jumpsuit. I love the way it looks on her. She curls her hair. Puts glitter on her chest. Picks up Milo. He spits up on her outfit, and we take turns scrubbing and blow-drying the stain. It doesn’t come out. She threatens to change her outfit. And I say, ‘No, you still look great.” She keeps the outfit on. I get ready while Andie walks the babysitter through each room of the house. It’s her first time watching Milo. I use the following products to get ready (in this order): rosemary shampoo, oatmeal exfoliating body scrub, Neutrogena facewash, Dollar Shave Club lather and razor, Proraso aftershave, Degree deodorant, BVLGARI AQVA cologne, Aquafresh toothpaste, TheraBreath Oral Rinse. “I like her voice,” my uncle texts. “It’s soothing.”

THINK

I promise myself that I’ll go to my uncle’s funeral when he dies.

DO

I cry in the mirror.

THINK

Because I don’t wear makeup, crying before a date doesn’t really change anything.

DO

Laugh a little.

THINK

I have been depressed for about 40 days now. Most days, I am functional. I do a good job of hiding it to the point where Andie usually forgets and Milo doesn’t notice. I congratulate myself on my covert depression.

DO

I change Milo’s diaper, get the tortoise out of the backyard. There’s a spider attached to his tail. It “balloons” through the air. We quietly leave the house, not even saying goodbye to our son for fear he’ll freak out.

DO

We go to the Annex for dinner. Our first seat doesn’t work out because one of the ladies at the table next to us is desperate for attention. She actually said, “Look at me in this picture” while pointing at her phone’s screen. Look at me. We eat at the bar instead. Andie tells me about a word she’s invented in a new poem: crud-rudder. I love it. We have fun talking about that word. We discuss the neologisms of Paul Celan. I tell her about loblolling. She likes that word too. We start talking about Vietnam, but then the mescal cocktail is too good. I tell her that when I’m in Tucson tomorrow, I’ll buy a whole case of mescal. We both knows it’s just a fantasy, that it’s unlikely I’ll even buy a single bottle. I feel myself blushing as she talks. “We used to talk about your poetry a lot,” I say to her. I’m reminded of our first dates together—back in Tucson. We’re both giddy. Our friends text. They’re already at the concert. We don’t rush. Not until Nicole texts “Two songs in.” Then we pay the bill and repark the car.

DO

The cashier at Will Call hands me the tickets so quickly, it makes me think I’m the last person to arrive. The Orpheum is packed, but silent—everyone listening to Welch’s “serene” vox.

THINK

I realize I haven’t been to a church since Ireland two summers ago. Before that, it had been a few years more. That’s two churches in five years.

DO

After the first set, I see Ted. I see Peter. I see Luke. I see another Luke. Each of them has seen Gillian Welch before. Peter and Luke are talking about the status of their chicken coops. Each has eight chickens. “But who’s counting,” Peter asks. “I am,” I say, somewhat seriously.

THINK

I want to ask: Are eight chickens the recommended number for a starter package? Instead, I just listen.

DO

I see Annette. She congratulates me on my new job, but reminds me that there are others, including herself, that are not so lucky. I say something like, “My new contract doesn’t start until August.”

THINK

I worry I sound cocky. Really, I’m just nervous and worried about professional confrontation.

DO

Andie is talking to her friends during the second set. I step away. Standing strategically between speaker and subwoofer, I enjoy a private view of Gillian. I see the new white boots she’s been complaining about (the left one hurts). I see her age, but refuse to put a number to it. In between songs, I go to the merch table and buy Andie a shirt (“the pink one”) and Milo a poster (signed). I ask the cashier where she’s from, if she plays music too. She’s from Nashville. And yes, she plays music too. She detects her own redundancy as we exchange money. Andie doesn’t like the gin and tonic I get her, so I get her Maker’s Mark instead. I get a cup of cubes in case she wants it on the rocks. And a cup with ginger beer in case she wants a mixer.

THINK

Andie’s concert etiquette is often brazen. The thrill of a good performance does it to her. I am reminded of her earlier that day, banging the xylophone with the mallets.

THINK

She still has secrets, I think. In a good way.

DO

Her talking during someone’s favorite song causes a large, angry man to approach her. He waves his hand in front of her face demonstratively and forbids her from speaking for the rest of the show. If it was anyone else asking her to stop talking, I would feel mortified. But because it’s this guy+telling her to stop talking, I feeling activated. Erik and I walk toward him until his back is literally against the wall.

THINK

I wonder if I am immature for craving a fight.

DO

“Do you know how many square feet are in this place?” I ask him. He shoves me. His girlfriend hails security. “Go find another spot,” I tell him. My lips inches from his.

THINK

It’s kind of erotic.

THINK AGAIN

Maybe that’s the point?

DO

They leave. All this adrenaline at a sedate Gillian Welch show gives me cognitive dissonance. Andie and I stand apart from our friends during the encore. She sings “Look at Miss Ohio.” Andie cries a little. For the past eleven months, we have been singing this melody at bedtime, replacing “Miss Ohio” with “Mr. Milo” as in “Oh me oh my oh, look at Mr. Milo.” I cry too.

THINK

It feels more appropriate to cry at a concert than in the mirror.

DO

Andie asks me to text the babysitter, but my phone is dead. We hurry home. Inside the door, we see the babysitter at the edge of the couch. The cat is on the arm of the couch. “Riding the rails,” my friend Tommy calls it. “How’s Milo?” Andie asks. “He’s so cute,” the babysitter says. She’s young. Cuteness matters. “How’d it go?” my wife wants to know. “It was good. He had a hard time falling asleep.”

THINK

I remember how difficult it was for me to answer How questions when I was younger, especially that one time at the barber. “How are you doing, Larry?” Nancy would ask me. I got tongue-tied. My parents never asked me questions like that.

DO

The babysitter has rearranged the pillows on the couch. They’re symmetrical, cool. I almost take a picture to remember the formation, but remember my phone is still dead. I ask Andie if maybe it was the cleaners who did it. “No,” she says. I go to the bathroom—

META

(oh yeah, I forgot: I went to the bathroom once at the concert too…) Have you ever seen the episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm where a receptionist [Chacha] in Larry David’s office building counts the frequency with which he uses the restroom?

DO 

“Come check this out,” I call for Andie from the bathroom. She enters dubiously. I point at the end of the toilet paper. It’s folded into a triangle. “Did the babysitter do this?” I ask. “Now that was cleaners,” Andie says. And then almost immediately: “Aww, that means the babysitter didn’t use the bathroom the whole time we were gone.” We both laugh at that.

DO

We talk in bed, each of us taking turns yanking the concert wristbands off. Apropos nothing, my wife falls asleep while telling me about her first orgasm. “Why are you telling me this?” I ask. Then, she says it was during her first night of babysitting. “I was very young,” she said, almost nervously. It was on a couch after the kid went to bed.

THINK

Not that I was really trying to, but I can’t picture our babysitter masturbating. I congratulate myself on a failed imagination.

DO

“Andie?” I ask. “Andie?” again. She is sleeping. I scroll through my charging phone, realizing I’ve recorded too much of my day, that I’ll inevitably have to leave a lot out.

OUTTAKES 

Descendents’ “Suburban Home”—ironic or not?

Pause Bachelor to stare at infographic on suicide rates.

Dave Rawlings (who plays with Gillian Welch). I’d like to look like him when I’m older. Great autograph.

Fifteen minutes wasted practicing time signatures on my knee—5/4 is fun

I’ve never had to fire someone per se, but I did have to kick a bass player out of my punk band in high school. (Sorry, Geoff!)

My car’s corrective driving makes me a less retaliatory driver, but gives me cognitive dissonance.
Before they’re sentences, these notes feel like a bloated Jason Bredle poem.

ELIZABETH K. BROWN

What Happened on June 21, 2018: brain-eating amoeba, commitment, and left-over burgers

Mornings are sometimes tense between Adam, and me. Adam is my fiancé. [1] Adam thinks my morning routine takes too long. His morning routine is to wake up and immediately take a shit, then proceed from there. My morning routine follows: pee, scrape tongue, brush teeth, nasal irrigation, eye drops, splash face with water. Because we only have one bathroom, I’m often forced to complete my morning routine at the kitchen sink. I use a purple ceramic neti pot filled with water that is initially filtered through a Big Berkey water filtration system, and a quarter teaspoon of uniodized Morton’s Salt. [2] (Distilled water is recommended to avoid introducing bacteria and brain-eating amoeba to my nasal passages, where these bacteria and brain-eating amoeba can live and cause potentially fatal infections, but I don’t use distilled water. [3])
     To avoid having to use the kitchen sink, I try to get out of bed a few minutes before Adam and take care of my business before he gets out of bed and insists on the need to take care of his. If I miss this small window of opportunity, I do small chores around the house. This morning, Adam was up first and so I put away the laundry that had been hanging for days on three separate drying racks in our living room. After he was finished, he lit the lilac and hyacinths candle that sits on the back of the toilet. [4] But, even with the candle, I continued to pace around the house with my toothbrush poking out of my mouth instead of returning to the bathroom to brush my teeth in the steamy-from-the-shower, lilac-imbued stink of our small bathroom. [5]
     After the pacing, I completed my routine and we convened in the kitchen. In the kitchen, at approximately 7:30a.m., I suggested (not for the first time) that Adam see a therapist. As you can imagine, this was a fantastic way to start to the day for both of us.

Me: “I know you think that we’re having a hard time because we’re both in stressful situations and that it will all get better once work quiets down for you, but the reality is that if things go as we talk about wanting them to go in our Five Year Plan—both of us starting graduate school, buying a house, having babies, getting married, all that—this is only the tip of the iceberg.” [6]

Me: “Especially the whole baby thing. Just imagine all of this going on between us if we were only ever allowed to get two or three consecutive hours of sleep for months on end? Imagine it. Imagine!!!” [7]

Me: “Don’t you think things have been better between us since I started seeing a therapist again?”

Me: “I love you and I think it would be better for us if you also had a stronger support network, or at least started to cultivate that now. I know you talk about not having that since moving to St. Louis, but from what you’ve told me, you haven’t really had the kind of support I’m talking about, and that you deserve, ever. Would you agree with that?”

Me: “Does that resonate with you? Does what I’m saying resonate with you?” [8]

Me: “When you glance at your watch when I’m in the middle of sharing something with you, I feel like you’re not listening.”

Me: “What I need from you is for you to communicate with me if you’re getting anxious about time. Okay? See, there’s another example of something I learned in therapy, or sort of. Actually, that was just yoga school.”

Me: “What do you mean what am I talking about? The When you ______ , I feel ______ , what I need is ______ formula. Oh, really? Well, we can talk about it tonight.”

Me: “I still have the names of the therapists my therapist gave me when I asked her for recommendations for you a couple of months ago. But that was when I wanted to stop having to break things down for you about what I was going through with all the sexual stuff. This is different.”

Me: “Please stop looking at your watch.”

Me: “Have you heard back from your Aunt Nancy yet about driving to Dayton this weekend? I need to know so I can see about getting someone to cover my shift on Sunday. Do you want me to go along?”

Me: “What’s different is that I don’t feel crazy. I’m not crazy!”

Me: “No, I’m not going to send the names of the therapists unless you ask me, so don’t say, “If you want to send them.” This is about what you want. I’m just trying to be clear about what I want and what my needs are.”

Me: “You know when I’m angry that doesn’t mean I don’t love you.”

Then, he left for work.

I had the day off. I had a lot of things on my list of things to do. I only accomplished a few of them, and not even the highest priorities. When Adam returned home for lunch, I was angry at him for the way our morning began and the way this beginning impacted me and my state of mind—and, therefore, my productivity. All morning, I had the apartment to myself. It was quiet but for the buzzing of the neighbors’ air conditioning compressors, so easily heard through the single-pane windows at all times. After Adam left for work, I made myself pancakes and slathered them with butter and grape jelly and a scoop of Greek yogurt. I ate the pancakes while reading the contributor’s notes and correspondence sections for the March or May issue of The Sun Magazine. It was a very pleasant hour.
     Then I moved slowly down the list of things to do. I made several calls to United Healthcare and the orthopedic office at the Barnes-Jewish hospital in go in order to try to figure out how much it would cost me out-of-pocket after insurance to get an MRI (a lot), a call to the dentist to confirm my appointment for a six-month cleaning (feeling on top of things), wrote an email to a friend about the “What Happened on June 21, 2018” project (with a commitment to participate), and made a few changes to and comments on my sister’s cover letter and resume (much easier to get into than working on my own resume). I put the dishes away from last night’s dinner and did dishes from breakfast. I practiced yoga with the guidance of an audio recording and did my physical therapy exercises. And finally, I wrote out my work schedule for next week in my planner. [9] I stared at the weeks and months that make up the rest of the summer. They seemed spent already.
     Around noon, Adam came home for lunch. He works only a few blocks away and so often comes home for lunch. He works for the city and his office is on the fourth floor with a view, in an old octagonal building that was originally built to house a women’s magazine in—I’ll look up the year later, but I think it was the early 1900s. When he came home and poked his head in the “office” (my bedroom) to ask if I wanted any eggs, I tried to ignore him. I carried on emailing my friend as if I were doing important work.
     “No thank you,” I said, still staring intently at the screen. He made himself some eggs and the kitchen had that fishy smell from burning olive oil in the cast iron skillet. When he was done cooking, I went to the kitchen and started to make myself lunch: a salad with strawberries, green onions, a lemon garlic dressing, chopped pecans, and shredded parmesan. As I spun greens in the salad spinner, he walked in with his plate in hand to eat at the butcher block. He was trying to spend time with me.
     “How was your day so far?” I asked. I was trying to be cool, or at least to avoid “getting into things” again. But all he said was, “Fine.” Okay, I thought, so that’s what we’re doing. Pretty soon, we were back to the question of whether or not we’re “on the same page” in our house hunting search and who’s leading the way in terms of the “authentic communication” we both talk about wanting.

Adam: “I’m sorry about the house. I just wasn’t ready to make a decision so quickly.”

Adam: “Is there never a time that you feel like I also contribute to honest communication?”

Adam: “I’m trying really hard. I feel overwhelmed.”

Adam: “Yes, I am. Every day that I go to work I’m working toward our future family together!”

You can probably imagine my side of things. We stood in the kitchen hugging for a while. I tried to kiss him, but he went for my forehead instead.
     This morning, when he went to leave on his bicycle, he didn’t say, “I love you.” He just said, “See you later.” I followed him to the door and said, “I love you,” sort of angrily. I didn’t want to deal with feeling guilty for leaving on a bad note if he were to get hit by a car and become brain damaged or paralyzed on the way to work. [10] He relented and said, “I love you, too.” I think it’s okay to say it even when you aren’t necessarily feeling it. I do this all the time with my family. I think maybe we were trying to connect in the kitchen after lunch so that “I love you” would come more naturally when he left again.
     After our brief embrace, he told me about some work stuff and I complained about the cost of health care in the U.S. I reported back to him some of the horrors I’d heard on NPR that morning. And then he put his helmet on and left for work and I got back to my important emails to friends.

I got to my therapist’s office at 3:30 even though my normal slot is 2:30. We scheduled this one for 3:30 because I asked if I could get a later slot now that I’m working Thursday mornings. Today (Thursday) was the only day she could do 3:30, so we scheduled it. But then I didn’t get scheduled for work today. When I arrived at 3:30, she said she’d been expecting me at 2:30. However, instead of apologizing profusely and insisting I must have been the one who got mixed up, I said what I knew to be true, which was that we’d scheduled it for 3:30 weeks ago. As it turned out, she had 45 minutes until her next client, so I stepped over her dog, Herbie, and sat down in the recliner.
I was sort of hoping, when she said she had been expecting me at 2:30, that she wouldn’t have time and I wouldn’t have to stay. I’d been taking a nap before driving over and wasn’t really feeling like talking. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to talk about. I’ve actually been feeling sort of hopeful about things for a couple of days, maybe more like 36 hours. And it’s been really nice. I thought going to therapy might ruin the nice, hopeful feeling. [11]
     For the entire session, I talked about Adam. I told my therapist all the details about the house we had looked at last Friday and about the way he’d resisted my intuition and put up a wall. I told her how these things had really pissed me off. I said I was still attached to the idea of the house, which someone else put an offer on immediately upon viewing, which is what I would have liked to do, and the seller accepted it before we even had a chance to put one together. Adam wanted to sleep on it. I told him, “We can’t sleep on it with the market the way it is!” I said this as if I were a realtor or had any real understanding of “the market.” All I knew was that I had written to the realtor the week before that what I (we) really wanted was something grandma had lived in for 50 years and then the universe gave us exactly that. The woman selling the house had lived in it for 52 years and had just moved out of state to be closer to family. And here’s the real kicker, the sign from the divine that we were meant to put in an offer immediately and not “sleep on it”: the grandma’s last name was Brown.
     My last name is Brown.
     And Adam’s last name is Brown.
     And we’re not even married yet. It’s just coincidence that we have the same last name. [12]
So, obviously, this was a sign. I was sold on the place—big, dry basement (for him to play music) with a finished bathroom (bonus); big yard with enough sun for a big garden; on a cul-de-sac (with children playing in the street = instant friends for my niece and nephew when they visit); and the price was right. But Adam didn’t want to hear it. All he could see was the carpet and wallpaper and huge ornate dining room set. He was anxious about being late to dinner with friends and didn’t want to go over the details of the contract even though I had my notebook and pen out and was taking notes as we re-capped things with our realtor. He wanted to sleep on it and talk about it the next day, even though I had to work at 7:00 the next morning and had already explained to him that I wouldn’t be available to discuss anything until the evening, which would probably be too late. And so, we went to dinner. And we didn’t get the house.
     I told all of this to my therapist, who doesn’t usually hear too much about my current life but instead hears a lot about my childhood and the many questions I have about my childhood. She said my energy was different and that she thought it was because I was talking about issues that were grounded in the present and not in the past. I guess that’s a good thing. Present. Not past.
     People keep telling us that purchasing a home is one of the most stressful things for a couple. I keep telling Adam that he should trust me more because I’m naturally a more practical person. He keeps telling me that he just needs more time because it’s a big decision. All this desire for more time makes my therapist wonder if the two of us aren’t quite ready for commitment. People keep asking us if we have a date set and I give the same line about how I didn’t want to be looking at venues for a reception and tent rental companies when I was supposed to be finishing my thesis for graduate school in the spring. Or I say that Adam’s starting grad school in the fall and I’m planning to start (another program) in the spring, so the earliest we’re thinking is next summer or fall. Sometime. Maybe a year from now. Who knows! Or else I say that we don’t have any money, which isn’t not true. Or that we’re trying to buy a house, which maybe isn’t true after all.
     My therapist asked some questions that resonated: Are you sure you’re ready to buy a house together? Are you sure you’re both ready for that type of commitment? 
Me: “Well…we might just put it in Adam’s name because we haven’t combined finances. I can’t imagine doing that! Super scary. I’ll just sort of pay him rent. And if I help out with household projects and renovations, we’ll figure out a way to make that fair for me. I’ll get a stake in the property, or he’ll take some agreed upon amount off the top of my rent that month. So really, it’s not that big of a commitment. We just want to stop paying our slum-lord-y landlord rent. And I really want a yard so I can have a garden.”
     Of course, then the therapist asks if I’m sure I want to get married, with all this talk of paying him rent and making things fair. I have a ring on my finger, but the truth is, I’m not sure. And neither is he. Is anyone ever totally sure? [13]
     From the beginning, I told Adam I wouldn’t marry him until he was out of debt. And that I wouldn’t have kids with him until at least one of us had a stable income. [14] And that health insurance would be good. Just a few months ago, for my 31st birthday, he tucked a printout of his credit card statement into a birthday card. It had a $0.00 balance. Happy Birthday, honey. I paid off my credit card! I guess now my “yes” is now more official than it was when he pulled the ring out of his sweatpants pocket in front of City Hall on our walk home from the library last September. 
     Anyway, it’s been three and a half years since we met, and we’ve been living together for about three of those and engaged for, I guess, about nine months. I’m on his insurance plan through work, but I pay him for it. We share a car (really, it’s mine) and a phone plan, split according to use. We split bills and groceries. [15] Here’s what my therapist wanted to know: Did Adam’s hesitation to purchase the $75,000 starter home of our dreams have a deeper meaning? And her questions led me to my own line of questioning: Is my dharma to bake lemon bars for my fiancé’s office co-workers and create a detailed filing system for all of our shared accounts and household projects (user manuals, car insurance statements, notes on construction loan products we might look into)? Or should I be focusing on my writing and the evening writing classes I keep talking about putting together to teach and job applications so that I can stop waitressing? In other words, should I be focusing on my own life? On “me” instead of “we”?

After therapy, I went to Starbucks to write down what happened, something I do most weeks. [16] I ordered an iced chai latte and texted back and forth with my sister for a while, then located the graduate course I plan to take in the fall in the course catalog and noted the time. I started another “to-do” list for tonight, which had “What Happened on June 21, 2018?” at the top. [17] Then I went across the street and purchased the pair of running shoes I’d placed on hold last week because I’d wanted time to think about the decision before committing to the $93.75 investment. It started to rain.

By the time I went for a run it was after 8:00p.m. and significantly cooler than it had been here for days. It was a chilly 75 degrees, or thereabouts. While running, I thought about my grandpa’s daily diaries. My maternal grandfather kept a daily diary for years. The first one began as a joint effort. He and my grandma commemorated the day of their wedding, June 2, 1956, with an inaugural diary entry. I wonder now, was the daily diary a wedding gift from someone? Perhaps my great Uncle Claire, who was a writer. [18] After a while, my grandma’s handwriting fades away, but my grandfather continued to record each day’s events for years on his own. Of course, finding an entry for 1958 or 1968 would be ideal (for a nice, round number), but I don’t have those diaries on hand. As far as I know, they’re located in my Aunt Laura’s basement. But what I do have is the actual diary from 1956.
     The details of their day on June 21, 1956 are in my grandfather’s squat handwriting, easy to tell apart from my grandmother’s neat, right-leaning script. The entry reads,
We drove to New Providence last night to my folks, and got there near ten. We went into Eldora this morning, where I saw Dr. Nyquist. He said I was OK, and time would make me more peppy. Later, we went to Marshalltown and ordered another Hide Away bed from Mr. Cox, plus two chrome steel yellow cushioned kitchen chairs. We looked at washing machines on our way home. In the evening, we saw the Deep River Softball girls beaten by one run at Wellston.
     Added later are the prices of the items. $169 for the Hide Away bed. $6.66 for the chairs, though it’s unclear if that was per chair or altogether. These are the notes of two newlyweds preparing for their conjugal home.
     Twenty-nine years and 364 days later, on June 20, 1986, after a six-month battle with leukemia, my grandma died. My grandpa’s entry for that day reads,
Elizabeth died at 9 p.m. today. She had been breathing heavily and had been on oxygen all day. She passed peacefully. I was holding one hand and Julie and Sheilah were holding the other hand. Connie and Colleen had been up earlier—also Laura, Mark and Alisa. [19]
     One year later, on June 21, 1987, I was exactly two months old my grandfather recorded his visit to the Quaker meeting house he regularly attended, and the genealogy work he accomplished that day. It’s disappointing to find that the entry for this day, 31 years ago, isn’t one of the many in which he comments on how proud he was to show me off at the courthouse, where he was the County Supervisor, or makes note of my overall health. Those are the types of entries I enjoy. [20]
     I didn’t remember to call my mom and ask how she was doing yesterday, on the anniversary of her mother’s death. I don’t always remember to do this, but, in recent years, I’ve been making an effort. I don’t know what it would have felt like to lose my mother at age twenty-one, and I don’t know what it would have meant to have a baby at twenty-two. I’m thirty-one now and I’m not sure I’ll know what it’s like to have a baby at all.
     On my run, I took a route I hadn’t taken for a while. It was a beautiful summer evening and for once not too hot, and I saw a total of one person in their yard. The only other people out of doors were the orange-vested energy company workers for Spire.

For dinner, Adam and I had leftover hamburgers from a grill out earlier this week. Adam made basil-mayonaisse with basil from our porch box, but he over-blended it so that it was watery. It looked pretty disgusting, but I put it on my burger anyway. I had a brownie and ice-cream for dessert. The small white bowl I ate out of is still sitting next to me on the coffee table. It’s one of a set of three I scored a few months ago from Goodwill. Handcrafted Cabana porcelain. It’s the exact size of half a grapefruit. Adam has fallen asleep on the other couch with a book laid open on his chest. It looks like he’s about a quarter of the way through the latest Naomi Klein book; something about “NO” is all I can see in the title from here. I’ve stayed up two hours past my goal bedtime of ten p.m. to record all of this. Perhaps one day my descendants—if I have any, if I am not first infected by a brain-eating amoeba—will be as interested in what I had to say about today as I am in what my grandfather had to say about every day for the years he kept a daily record. Or perhaps not. As of five minutes ago, Central Standard Time, June 21, 2018, is over.

  1. I wish the word fiancé didn’t sound so pretentious. It’s not that I think all French words are pretentious, just that saying “fiancé,” which is what he is, instead of “boyfriend,” which is what he was before, seems to be making a big announcement. “Everyone! We’re going to get married!” But, this isn’t an announcement I want to make. We don’t have a date set and I’m not sure we ever will. I sort of pressured him into getting me a ring, I think, and now I don’t really like wearing it. I really don’t like the added hassle of having to clean it either, but it looks a lot nicer when I do.
  2. The Big Berkey system was a big (read: expensive) purchase that felt necessary when my fiancé, Adam, and I moved into the rental where we live two years ago. The tap water had—and still has—a dusty flavor and scent that was amplified when we boiled water for tea or carbonated it using the Soda Stream. Also, fancier salt is often marketed as being crucial to proper nasal irrigation, but I’ve relied on the Morton’s girl and her umbrella in the rain for years with no problems.
  3. I only learned about the brain-eating amoeba because, a couple of years ago, my mom sent me an alarming message th

Microsoft owns the desktop with Windows -- it is undeniable. You know what? That's fine. But the success of Windows is not a failure for Linux. What I mean to say is, the open source kernel is omnipresent, whether you know it or not. To highlight the ubiquitous nature of Ubuntu in particular, Canonical today releases an all-new infographic showing how this distribution "connects everything."

EM Releases New Site-Specific Infographics on Cleanup Progress

p

WASHINGTON, D.C. EM recently updated its “By the Numbers” infographics filled with quick and clear metrics demonstrating EM’s cleanup progress.
   A total of 14 infographics — one for each major cleanup site and EM’s Savannah River National Laboratory — are available on this EM webpage.
   The easy-to-read, one-page infographics summarize each site’s history before delving into eye-catching statistics. For example, the Oak Ridge Office of Environmental Management’s infographic points out that crews there prevented 5,000 pounds of mercury from entering the environment.
   Other highlights include: 
  • Energy Technology Engineering Center — The DOE, California Department of Toxic Substances Control, and Environmental Protection Agency completed soil characterization for about 300 acres of land, taking more than 3,600 radionuclide samples, 6,500 chemical samples, and 100 soil vapor samples.
  • Hanford Site — Workers have demolished 889 facilities, many contaminated.
  • Idaho Site — Crews retrieved 65,000 cubic meters of stored transuranic waste, 50,000 meters of it from under a soil berm inside a building large enough to house an aircraft carrier.
  • Los Alamos National Laboratory Site — The Los Alamos Field Office completed treatment of 60 remediated nitrate salt drums in November 2017 and finished treatment of 27 unremediated nitrate salt drums in March 2018.
  • Moab Site — 9.1 million tons of uranium mill tailings have been shipped to a dedicated disposal cell, amounting to 57 percent of the total tons.
  • Nevada National Security Site — Since 1961, nearly 49 million cubic feet of classified, low-level and mixed low-level radioactive waste have been disposed at the Area 3 and Area 5 Radioactive Waste Management Sites.
  • Oak Ridge Site — 1,067 acres of land have been transferred to the community for industrial growth and economic redevelopment.
  • Paducah Site — More than 66 million pounds of contaminated scrap metal — enough to build a World War I battleship — have been removed from storage yards and shipped off-site for disposal. Contaminated scrap metal was a major contributor to surface water contamination.
  • Portsmouth Site — More than 119 million pounds of waste have been shipped and disposed off-site to date.
  • Savannah River Site — More than 4,160 canisters of glassified radioactive waste have been produced at the Defense Waste Processing Facility since it began operating in 1996.
  • Savannah River National Laboratory — Over $5 billion in complex-wide savings have been achieved for the EM program due to innovations developed at the laboratory in the past 5 years.
  • Separations Process Research Unit — More than 9,700 gallons of residual liquid from tanks have been treated through solidification.
  • Waste Isolation Pilot Plant — 172,721 containers have been emplaced in the WIPP underground.
  • West Valley Demonstration Project — More than 6.5 miles of piping and over 50 tons of vessels and equipment have been removed from predominantly high-hazard areas of the former reprocessing plant.

As marketers look at the American population, there are four living generations for them to address. This four-infographic series is designed to give a quick glimpse into what makes each of these generations tick. Traditionalists are the parents of Baby Boomers, grandparents of Generation X, and the great grandparents of Millennials. Here’s what marketers need to know about them: Traditionalists have lived through many defining moments in American history. They have persevered through at least one World War and the Great Depression, and they kept their nose to the grindstone to build America into a superpower. They are loyal, dependable, and thorough. This generation responds better to more traditional marketing strategies and face-to-face meetings. They believe that authority is based on seniority and tenure, and want to be respected for their age and experience. They place value on traditions and history. Traditionalists appreciate clearly defined rules and policies. Quite often,... keep reading

If you short a power source the voltage difference will be zero (theoretical, not real). As the resistance rises the voltage differential will aswell. Because lithium ion has such low internal resistance, adding a resistor will allow a more accurate reading of the charging circuit voltage.

Stackexchange and quora discussions for the most part. Most research seems to be behind paywalls. So far take all I've said with a grain of salt, i still am very interested in learning more, but am currently too busy with work to really look into it. I'm probably wrong on how quick charge works, but at a glance have found little info on how it actually behaves on the battery end. If in fact all it does is boost then buck to increase power over the cable that's pretty disappointing and not a good design.

  • Debian LTS work, June 2018

    I was assigned 15 hours of work by Freexian's Debian LTS initiative and worked 12 hours, so I have carried 3 hours over to July. Since Debian 7 "wheezy" LTS ended at the end of May, I prepared for Debian 8 "jessie" to enter LTS status.

    I prepared a stable update of Linux 3.16, sent it out for review, and then released it. I rebased jessie's linux package on this, but didn't yet upload it.

  • Graphical environments in the world of IoT

    The IoT promises to bring about a revolution in the way we interact with devices around us. While many IoT devices will be hidden away, from sensors that measure manufacturing tolerances in a factory to hubs that control lighting around the home, there are a class of devices that need to provide some sort of graphical output or display to the user. Some examples include digital signage, interactive kiosks, automotive in-car entertainment gateways, smart meters, and the plethora of display screens seen on everything from washing machines to smart thermostats. All of these examples need some way to output graphics to a screen display but in an embedded environment that is not always easy.

    Linux is one of the most popular OS choices for manufacturers and solution providers to use in IoT devices and with it there are a few options available for graphical environments. From custom software to drive the display, through direct frame buffer access with toolkits such as QT, to a full X windowing server. All of these options have their pros and cons and often it is a trade-off between custom software and off-the-shelf components to speed up development. Custom software takes time and requires developers to continue to maintain a code base for the lifetime of the device, while using a graphical toolkit such as QT requires less code but comes with commercial licencing. The open source X windowing server is a popular choice but, being over 30 years old, has some shortcomings. It has been well documented that the design of X windows, although revolutionary at the time, has some security risks especially around application isolation and privilege escalation which has led to efforts to replace it by redesigning the graphical server from the ground up. One such effort is Mir.

  • Canonical releases new infographic to show how Ubuntu Linux 'connects everything'

    To highlight the ubiquitous nature of Ubuntu in particular, Canonical today releases an all-new infographic showing how this distribution "connects everything." I urge you to give it a look, as it will open your eyes to just how important Ubuntu -- and Linux overall -- really is. Apparently, this is an update to a previous infographic released in 2016, refreshed for 2018 following the release of Ubuntu 18.04 Bionic Beaver.

  • This Infographic Reveals the Sheer Scale of Ubuntu’s Success

    Ever wondered just how widely used Ubuntu is? Well, wonder no more! Canonical has put together a new infographic to highlight the scale and success Ubuntu has achieved across an enviable assortment of computing sectors. And it’s compelling stuff.

  • Infographic: Ubuntu Linux Is Used by Millions Worldwide and Connects Everything

    Canonical has shared with us today a new infographic that shows how their Ubuntu Linux operating system is being used all over the world by big-name companies the offer their services to millions of consumers.

    More than two years ago, when Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) was released, Canonical put together an infographic to show the world how many people use Ubuntu and on which devices. With Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (Bionic Beaver) out the door this year, they did it again and published a brand-new infographic to show the world that Ubuntu and Linux are everywhere.

  • Kubuntu 18.04 LTS Users Can Now Update to the KDE Plasma 5.12.6 LTS Desktop

    The Kubuntu team announced today the immediate availability of the latest KDE Plasma 5.12.6 LTS desktop environment for the Kubuntu 18.04 LTS (Bionic Beaver) operating system series.

    Released on April 26, 2018, Kubuntu 18.04 LTS (Bionic Beaver) operating system is supported for three years with software and security updates, which means that is ships with the long-term supported version of the KDE Plasma desktop environment, KDE Plasma 5.12 LTS.

          Having trouble aligning cameras properly in RC and Photoscan      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

A couple of weeks ago I photographed a book cart for the local museum. Each side of the cart has different books on it, and the handles of the cart each have all sorts of different yarn around them making them unique. The problem that I am running into is that the photos from one end of the cart aren’t aligning properly, perhaps because there’s the same infographic on both ends of the cart (see image below). So the photos from one end align with the photos from the other end. I would think that the books and yarn would be enough to help the photos align, but I guess not.


Anyway, I’ve tried adding control points to the cart and the items on the cart, but that didn’t make much difference. I’ve tried running the photo set in Reality Capture and Photoscan, with similar alignment results in both. I’ve gotten the mesh to turn out semi-ok, but the alignment problems are creating texture issues.


Does anybody have any clever suggestions for how to get everything to align correctly?

E-Commerce Trends & How Do We Save Even More Shopping Online?


The online marketing industry rushed aboard Malaysian shores three years ago, only to be greeted with scepticism and talks of ‘Will it work?’. Today, consumers and business owners know the answer to that question by heart – ‘Yes, it will work and has been working!’

E-Commerce Trends & How Do We Save When Shopping Online?
E-Commerce Trends & How Do We Save When Shopping Online?

Online shopping is not new in Malaysia, but it is still growing. Like how consumers can save on their retail spending via printed coupons and vouchers, we can do the same while shopping online with digital coupons and promo codes! ShopCoupons come to mind. Read on below, on what I think consumers are looking for when shopping online.


Online Shopping is The Way Forward


Why shop at physical stores when you can go online and just click BUY! While consumers are not 100% abandoning physical stores anytime soon, it is predicted that existing online shoppers will continue to buy more frequently, and non-online shoppers would start to explore e-commerce in the next 12 months

Online Shopping Trends
Online Shopping Trends

Just like every other industry – big or small - the emerging e-commerce capabilities are pushing for changes in trends. If you were to buy furniture or fresh produce online two years ago, you would think: “Furniture products such as sofas, or fresh produce such as poultry and vegetables, are the kind of things people will never buy online simply because most will want to have a touch and feel of the items.

Payment Methods Are Important! 


Fintech comes to mind, and I've personally done feature articles on multiple payment gateways from Maybank, to GT Dollar, to B Infinite just to name a few. While cash is king, 90% consumers who responded to the survey are now more open to the idea of opting for non-cash payment methods than they never had before.

Go Mobile! , payments online can be done via a variety of channels

This means that businesses must up their game and offer multiple payment options, in a move to increase sales through the improvement of customer convenience. Firstly, businesses with an online arm will continue to thrive when they offer more payment options for their customers. Secondly, consumers who are exposed to a myriad of payment methods get the option to choose their preferred channel, and in the long run, better manage their finances. Thirdly, online marketplaces will impose a more stringent payment monitoring system, resulting in safe online transaction for all.

Express Delivery !


As the logistics industry grows exponentially to keep up with the rigorous demands of online shopping, it is predicted that consumers will relook the timeline as to when they would like their purchases to be delivered – in this case, the faster the better. Superb!



It Goes Beyond Price


At the end of the day, while we have established that consumers are encouraged to shop online due to its many cost-saving benefits, it also boils down to all the other frills such as customer service, positive product reviews, and many more.

Use Online Voucher Codes to Save Even More when Shopping Online!


Shopee Malaysia Promo Codes are available on ShopCoupons
Shopee Malaysia Promo Codes are available on ShopCoupons

ShopCoupons features the latest coupons, discounts, and voucher codes in Malaysia to help users save while shopping online. Did you know Shopee promo code are now available on their website? Shopee is one of the leading e-commerce marketplaces in Malaysia. So what are you waiting for? Shop online today itself!

Vittime come siamo di iniquità ogni giorno più evidenti e pazzesche; con una vita ridotta a pagare tasse e gabelle varie; costretti a lavorare come cani per poter dare da mangiare (e nulla più) a noi stessi e alle nostre famiglie; ben consapevoli del fatto che chi ci fa quotidianamente la morale non fa altro che rubare a man salva, stiamo giorno dopo giorno immagazzinando una carica di violenza che attende solo di esplodere.

      Com’è ovvio, esplode per prima nelle anime più semplici e primitive, ma ha già raggiunto una parte considerevole di noi e – se devo dire – la cosa non mi turba per niente: anzi, aspetto solo che venga il mio turno. Nella più totale assenza di giustizia e verità, le mani e le armi sono quello che ci resta. Lo sappiamo bene e lo scopriamo giorno dopo giorno, nel mentre un’orda di pasciuti “buonisti”, al riparo di scorte, privilegi e chiese, ci dice che cosa dovremmo fare.

      Le persone più semplici hanno già capito che cosa dovremmo fare, e lo fanno, per ora scatenandosi come belve in venti contro uno, e tra loro. Ma si tratta solo di attendere che questa deriva compia il suo corso, poi sarà la volta della mattanza collettiva. Capita sempre così, quando le civiltà finiscono. Occorre il bagno di sangue purificatore (e pedagogico) per dare vita a qualcosa di migliore, che non durerà ad infinito, ma ci consentirà almeno di divertirci (o anche solo di sfogarci) un po’.

What would the U.S. look like without Roe v. Wade, the 1973 case that legalized abortion nationwide?

That's the question now that President Donald Trump has chosen conservative Judge Brett Kavanaugh as his nominee to replace retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy.

Reversing the landmark case would not automatically make abortion illegal across the country. Instead, it would return the decision about abortion legality to the states, where a patchwork of laws are already in place that render abortion more or less available, largely depending on individual states' political leanings.

"We think there are 22 states likely to ban abortion without Roe," due to a combination of factors including existing laws and regulation on the books and the positions of the governor and state legislature, says Amy Myrick, staff attorney at the Center for Reproductive Rights, which represents abortion-rights advocates in court.

"The threat level is very high now," Myrick says.

Kavanaugh never opined on Roe v. Wade directly during his tenure on the U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C. In his 2006 confirmation hearing for that position, though, he said he would follow Roe v. Wade as a "binding precedent" of the Supreme Court — which judges in lower courts are required to do.

Opponents of Roe v. Wade buoyed by the pick

"Judge Kavanaugh is an experienced, principled jurist with a strong record of protecting life and constitutional rights," said a written statement from Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. She spearheaded support for Trump in his presidential campaign after he promised to appoint to the Supreme Court only justices who would overturn Roe v. Wade.

Kennedy, by contrast, was a swing vote on abortion issues. He frequently sided with conservatives to uphold abortion restrictions. However, in key cases in 1992 and 2016, he sided with liberals to uphold Roe's core finding that the right to abortion is part of a right to privacy that is embedded within the U.S. Constitution.

Even now, with Roe v. Wade's protections in place, a woman's access to abortion is heavily dependent on where she lives.

According to an analysis by the Guttmacher Institute, a reproductive-rights think tank, 19 states adopted 63 new restrictions on abortion rights and access.

At the same time, 21 states adopted 58 measures last year intended to expand access to women's reproductive health care services.

Since 2011, states have enacted nearly 1,200 separate abortion restrictions, according to Guttmacher, making these types of laws far more common.

As of now, four states — Louisiana, Mississippi and North and South Dakota — have what are known as abortion "trigger laws." Those laws — passed long after Roe was handed down — would make abortion illegal if and when the Supreme Court were to say Roe is no more.

"They are designed to make abortion illegal immediately," says Myrick.

Another dozen or so states still have pre-Roe abortion bans on the books.

Some have been formally blocked by the courts, but not repealed. Those bans could, at least in theory, be reinstated, although "someone would have to go into court and ask to lift that injunction," says Myrick.

States could simply begin enforcing other bans that were never formally blocked, like one in Alabama that makes abortion providers subject to fines and up to a year in jail.

At the same time, Myrick says, "there are 20 states where abortion would probably remain safe and legal."

The path to the Supreme Court

Several major challenges to state abortion laws are already in the judicial pipeline. One of these will have to get to the Supreme Court to enable a majority to overturn Roe v. Wade.

"It's not a question of if, it's a question of what or when," says Sarah Lipton-Lubet, vice president for reproductive health and rights at the National Partnership for Women and Families.

The cases fall into three major categories.

The first — and most likely type to result in the court taking a broad look at Roe v. Wade — are "gestational" bans that seek to restrict abortion at a certain point in pregnancy, says Lipton-Lubet.

Mississippi has a 15-week ban, currently being challenged in federal court. Louisiana enacted a similar ban, but it would take effect only if Mississippi's law is upheld. Iowa earlier this spring passed a six-week ban, although that is being challenged in state court, not federal, under the Iowa Constitution.

The second category involves regulations on abortion providers.

One pending case, for instance, involves an Arkansas law that would effectively ban medication abortions. Finally, there are bans on specific procedures, including several in Texas, Arkansas and Alabama that would outlaw "dilation and evacuation" abortions, which are the most common type used in the second trimester of pregnancy.

Both Myrick and Lipton-Lubet agree that there is no way to predict which abortion case is likely to reach the high court first.

The case that's actually closest to the Supreme Court, notes Myrick, is a challenge to an Indiana law that would outlaw abortion if the woman is seeking it for sex selection or because the fetus could be disabled. A federal appeals court found that law unconstitutional in April.

Many analysts also agree that even with the Supreme Court's likely philosophical shift, Roe v. Wade might not actually be overturned at all.

Instead, says Lipton-Lubet, a more conservative court could "just hollow it out" by allowing restrictive state laws to stand.

"The court cares about things like its own legitimacy," says Myrick, "and how often a precedent has been upheld in the past." Given that Roe's central finding — that the decision to have an abortion falls under the constitutional right to privacy — has been upheld three times, even an anti-abortion court might be loath to overrule it in its entirety.

          Whole Foods Withdraws Promise to Label GMOs      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

By Dr. Mercola

While Whole Foods Market, founded in 1980, has been a leading retailer of organic produce in the U.S. for decades, the company has faced its share of criticism; in later years being accused of operating more like an industrial organic company rather than a local distributor of high-quality organic food.

In 2007, it bought its chief rival Wild Oats — an acquisition initially challenged by the Federal Trade Commission, which said the merger violated federal antitrust laws and provided Whole Foods unilateral market power that could raise prices and lower quality. The issue was eventually settled by selling off the Wild Oats brand and more than 30 physical store locations.1,2

Amazon Now Owns Whole Foods

Last year, Amazon announced its intention to acquire Whole Foods Market and its 465 stores, a $13.7 billion deal that had food manufacturers quaking in their boots, while organic producers worried the deal might compromise and dilute organic food standards even further.3 The acquisition went through on August 28, 2017.4 Within two days of the merger, Whole Foods' store traffic rose by 25 percent. Within the first month, Amazon made $1.6 million off its online sales of Whole Foods private label products.

But while the success story of Whole Foods continues, questions about whether it's really socially commendable to shop at Whole Foods have festered well over a decade.5 The company has faced well-deserved criticism for its effects on employees by refusing unionization, the environment due to its limited supply of local produce, and its selling of questionable products such as items containing MSG and rBGH, making label scrutiny a necessity even here.

Like most large corporations, it has shareholders to contend with, and the company has been accused of cutting corners to make a profit on more than one occasion. This trend is unlikely to change with Amazon at the rudder. As a matter of fact, while Whole Foods has spent the last five years promoting its promise to implement a comprehensive labeling policy6 for genetically modified organisms (GMOs) — a promise that has been a major selling point to entice customer support — that plan has now been laid aside.

Whole Foods Reneges Its Promise to Implement GMO Labeling

As reported by New Food Economy,7 Whole Foods' GMO labeling policy was scheduled to take effect September 1, 2018. However, in a May 18 email, Whole Foods president and CEO A.C. Gallo announced the company's labeling requirement is being "paused" in response to concerns from suppliers about having to comply with both Whole Foods' rules and those proposed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). The public comment8 period ended July 3 and the final rule is expected to be delivered July 29.

"As the USDA finalizes the federal regulation in the coming months and the food industry assesses the impact, we do not want our Policy to pose further challenges for you and your business," Gallo writes. As reported by New Food Economy:

"As currently proposed, the USDA policy would make several substantive changes to the way GMOs have traditionally been defined by the food industry — starting with the terminology itself. The government's preferred nomenclature is "bioengineered" (BE), which only refers to a food that has had another organism's genes spliced into it by a process called transgenesis.

Other types of genetic modification, including some produced by gene-editing tools like CRISPR, would not need to be labeled. As currently written, Whole Foods' requirements would be more stringent than the proposed USDA rules in at least two significant ways.

First, USDA has suggested letting companies label BE ingredients by QR code, meaning that customers would need to be directed to a website via smartphone to find out what's in their food … Whole Foods has never planned to allow QR codes to count as GMO disclosures …

Second, USDA rules contain perplexing carveouts for meat products, which are regulated under a different system9,10 … Whole Foods now faces a choice: It can move forward with its original plan, or defer to the government's less comprehensive new rules."

Is Whole Foods Committing Fraud?

As noted by New Food Economy, "All this begs a question: Is Whole Foods softening its commitment to GMO-labeling transparency?" The company promised its customers it would lead the way by labeling food sold in its stores in a clear and transparent manner. In fact, it was the first national grocery chain to make such a commitment, and many have patiently waited for the implementation of this promise, as it would set a new, higher standard for others to follow.

Transparent GMO labeling is also what more than 8 in 10 Americans want.11 If Whole Foods ends up adopting USDA rules, many GMO-containing foods will remain unlabeled, which is nothing short of unacceptable, especially for a company that claims to be a leader among organics. As noted in the featured article, "It would mean that a company that's long claimed the moral high ground would be no more transparent, as far as GMO labeling goes, than any other grocery store."

Whole Foods assured New Food Economy that it remains "committed to providing our customers with the level of transparency they want and expect from us and will continue to require suppliers to obtain third-party verification for non-GMO claims." But if that's the case, why has no new deadline for its GMO labeling been announced?

March 8, 2013, Whole Foods issued a statement saying, "by 2018, all products in its U.S. and Canadian stores12 must be labeled to indicate if they contain GMOs. Whole Foods Market is the first national grocery chain to set a deadline for full GMO transparency. 'We are putting a stake in the ground on GMO labeling to support the consumer's right to know,' said Walter Robb, co-CEO of Whole Foods Market."

To me, it seems incredibly disingenuous to mislead and lie to customers for five years with a promise to be the first to really do the right thing, and then not follow through just because the government is working on rules that in no way, shape or form fulfill customers' expectations of transparent labeling. It is my sincere hope that some of you will be angered enough to file a class-action lawsuit against them for this injustice.

USDA Bioengineered Labeling Is a Joke

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) released its proposal13 for the labeling of foods containing GMOs May 3 — a bizarre, or to use the word of Sierra Club, "Orwellian," rule that appears to misdirect and create unnecessary confusion on purpose. Perhaps most problematic is the fact that it's not clear whether "highly refined foods" will be included in the standard. Not only are a majority of foods sold in grocery stores highly refined, or contain highly refined ingredients, but these foods are also the most likely to contain GMOs.

If highly refined foods will not require GMO labeling, the labeling requirement will be essentially useless, as very few whole foods are genetically engineered. Another significant problem is the absence of the phrases "genetically modified" or "genetically engineered" on the label. Not even the now well-recognized household word "GMO" is to be found anywhere on the USDA's GMO label. Instead of calling it what it is, and what people now are most likely to understand, the USDA is using the word "bioengineered" or BE for short.

This is a misleading phrase for the simple fact that it sounds far more natural than it is; closer to biodynamic than genetically modified. The proposal also does not address whether foods produced using newer forms of genetic engineering, such as gene editing, CRISPR technology and synthetic biology, will need to be labeled, and/or whether they would require another type of label to distinguish them from in-vitro DNA techniques.

Adding insult to injury, the logo itself is clearly designed to impart a false impression of GMOs as being natural and wholesome. The proposed logo (two versions of which are included here), is the word "be" inside a smiley-face sun. The whole thing smacks of biotech promotion and misdirection. As stated by George Kimbrell, legal director for the Center for Food Safety, "We would support a little circle that said 'GE' or 'GMO' — something neutral that's not pro-biotech propaganda."

bioengineered

Last but not least, the proposed rule does not even include the requirement to use a standardized icon. Rather than mandating an easily recognizable icon or logo, companies would have the option of using:

The smiley sun logo (above)

Two other "BE" logos (see the proposed rule document14

Adding a sentence along the lines of "Contains a bioengineered food ingredient" without logo

Simply including a QR code directing you to the company's website for more information about the ingredients, which will require you to have a smartphone and reliable connection inside the store, something which one-third of Americans don't have.

As a result, the use of QR codes has been criticized as being inherently discriminatory against rural, low-income and elderly populations.15 Internet and smartphone availability really should not be a criterion for getting information about what's in the food you're holding in your hand and contemplating buying

Why Rename What Everyone Already Knows?

A solid decade has been spent educating Americans about genetically engineered (GE) foods and foods containing GMO ingredients — what they are and that they exist in the first place. With this in mind, the USDA's decision to ditch the terms GE and GMO and replace them with BE seems extremely suspect.

As noted by Sophia Kruszewski, senior policy specialist with the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition, the timing is even more suspect "since many companies have responded to consumer desire for transparency and started voluntarily labeling their products. [GMO disclosure] doesn't seem to pose an enormous challenge."16

The only reason I can come up with for unnecessarily complicating matters is that the USDA is assisting the biotech industry by making the labeling as obscure as possible. And, if Whole Foods decides to just follow along with this opaque and nonsensical strategy, it stands to lose consumers' respect, not to mention trust.

The Great GMO Escape

In related news, "missteps by agribusiness giants" have allowed invasive GE grass developed for golf courses to spread across Jefferson and Malheur counties in Oregon.17 The creeping bentgrass developed by Scotts Miracle-Gro and Monsanto a decade ago was engineered to withstand Roundup application, which would be a boon for keeping golf courses pristine and clear of weeds.

The grass was never approved by the USDA. Alas, it spread from old seed fields into areas it doesn't belong — a perfect example of why GMO test plots should not be allowed outdoors, and why farmers really should have the right to sue companies for contaminating their fields with GE seeds, and not the other way around. (Historically, farmers found growing GE crops without having purchased seed are the ones who have been getting sued for patent infringement).

Some 80 acres of the GE bentgrass was planted in Canyon County, Idaho, and another 420 acres in Jefferson County, Oregon. In late summer 2013, two storms swept through Oregon, scattering the seeds "well beyond the designated control area." Since then, the grass has become part of the natural environment, with virtually no possibility of getting rid of it. According to High Country News, the grass "thrives in canals and ditches, where it collects sediment and impedes water flow."

The fact that it's so hard to kill has become "a headache" for farmers who are already battling a number of other weed problems, and many fear the GE grass will eventually migrate into Willamette Valley, where many of the primary grass businesses in Oregon are located. Don Herb, a seed dealer in Linn County, told Oregon Live,18 "That would be a catastrophic event for Oregon's grass seed industry. We don't need Scotts and others to put our industry at risk."

Scotts was fined $500,000 in 2007 for allowing the grass seeds from its test plots to escape, and the company has reportedly tried to rein in the spread of its unapproved grass but, now, the company will no longer be held liable. "[I]n a series of decisions over the last several years, the USDA has relieved Scotts of future responsibility in return for the company's promise not to market the grass," High Country News writes.

This hardly seems like a fair deal, considering estimates suggest it's costing as much as $250,000 annually to keep up with its removal. Who will pay that bill? State, county government and local growers, most likely. What's worse, the GE bentgrass also has the potential to impact national forests and grasslands, which would further add to the financial burden caused by Scotts and Monsanto's carelessness.

Will You Remain Loyal to Whole Foods or Let Them Know How You Feel About Their Deception?

There are many problems associated with GMOs, from environmental problems to human health risks. As such, it's really imperative for consumers to be fully informed about what they're buying, especially when it comes to their food. Whether Whole Foods will fulfill its promise to lead the way by requiring GMO foods sold in its stores to be clearly labeled remains to be seen.

At present, it seems to have decided that making it easy for suppliers is more important than fulfilling its promise for labeling to its customers. If you're a frequent shopper at Whole Foods, you may want to share your views with the company's leadership.

7 Types Of Social Media Content to Drive Engagement<br />Uma Bhat<br />Wed, 07/11/2018 - 15:02<br /><br /> Do people crave for variety when it comes to food? Yes Undoubtedly!<br /><br />But do you think your social media audience is also craving for variety content every single day? Again undoubtedly yes, they are looking forward to read different types of content on social media. <br /><br /><br />Time and again it’s been proven that your social media audience is craving for unique, informative, thoughtful and actionable content. <br /><br /><br />Surprise and offer your social media users with different variety of content instead of serving them with the same content over and over again. <br /><br />Here are 7 different types of social media content that can evoke action and engagement from your audience. <br /><br />Content With Incentives<br />You are creating content with an aim that audience will read and eventually convert into leads. But if you want them to read your content, should you not convince them?<br /><br />You got to show them the carrot and allow them to chase the carrot. But how do you really encourage your readers to read your content?<br /><br />According to Levitt and Dubner, they write in their world famous book, ‘Freakonomics’ that there are three kinds of incentives: monetary, social and moral. Content can attract audience with the help of any of these incentives or a combination of these.<br /><br />Monetary incentives can show how a product or service can save their time and money, or ho w they can increase their sales, how they can make more money using your product, and so on.<br /><br />Social incentives can motivate your audience who feel belonged to the society and nature. When people who belong to the same society as yours are talking and sharing a word about the latest product that they bought, it is but natural for a human being to accept that as evidence. Content with social proof, where many others already using the products, add the much needed trust factor.<br /><br />Moral incentive is all about being responsible for your own acts. When audience can associate a product with a social cause, it evokes an interest in supporting the brand that supports the social cause. When there is a content about saving the environment, people with special interest about this topic can easily connect with your content.<br /><br />The below was a simple yet effective advertisement by P & G to fight gender bias and work towards equality for all.<br /><br /><br />Content With Visuals<br /><br />Did you know that eyes can process 36,000 visual messages per hour!! Quite impressive, right?<br /><br /><br />With so much of content on the social media, you don’t have more than few seconds to catch the attention of your audience. Here visuals play a great role; it will certainly help you to stand out in the crowd.<br /><br />Visuals can be processed faster and better to produce a stronger reaction when compared to any other type of content. Visuals influence the retention of the information and there by user engagement.<br /><br />With visuals, you can condense a whole lot of information into a beautiful image that tell a story by itself.<br /><br />Visual can be in the form on infographics, vidoes, images, gifs and presentations. Not every visual have same effect. An image in a particular place such as the blog banner evokes different reaction compared to the video on Youtube. Use visuals wisely and at appropriate places to enhance the social media engagement.<br /><br /><br />Related Content: 10 Video Content Marketing Ideas That Every Marketer Should Know<br /><br />Content With Guidelines<br />Content that has detailed guides on a particular topic is very popular since it becomes a reference document or a manual for the social media audience who want to learn in depth about a product or service before they buy it. They look out for guidelines mostly just after making half way decisions relating to buy the product. The guides can be a game changer and push the half decision into a decision to buy.<br /><br />The audiences expect the guidelines to cover many aspects such as the method to use the product, the ingredients of the product, carbon prints, people involved in producing the product, social message, packing, materials that go into producing the product and so on. This guide gives them the confidence regarding the numerous questions that they had in their mind.<br /><br />For example the below guide on twitter marketing by Sproutsocial will enable you to start using twitter by reading the blog post.<br /><br /><br />Content With Customer Experiences<br /><br />Customers are the heart of your brand, and when content is woven around their experiences, it will work wonders.<br /><br /><br />When you go above and beyond to create delightful customer experiences, this in itself becomes content for your audience. Capturing customer experiences by requesting them to share their feedback and opinion about your products can be useful content strategy.<br /><br />Convert the satisfactory messages and comments from your customers into testimonials, quotes, interviews, images or even a case study.  These experiences when shared on social media tend to become a driving force for many more purchase decisions.<br /><br />See how Cloohawk converted the positive feedback of its customer, Disability Foundation, into a case study that explains the pain points of the customer and how Cloohawk was able to solve their problems.<br /><br />5 Ways Hootsuite+Cloohawk Helped Us Drive the Message of Inclusion<br /><br /><br />Content With Lists<br />Many times it is the easiest and the most effective way to present your content in the form of clear bulleted list that is to the point and convey the message in short and clear format.<br /><br />When the content is neatly bulleted and numbered with sub headings, it is easier for the reader to go over the list and pick and choose the bullets that are of importance to the reader thereby reducing the time spent on reading the entire text.<br /><br />The content presented in the list form makes it easier for the reader to find it while searching on the social media, easier to remember due to its arrangement into bullets and also actionable.<br /><br />For example when your audience is looking at reasons why they should use social media marketing for their business, it becomes easy if the reasons are listed down.<br /><br /><br />Content That Evokes Interaction<br /><br />Earlier it was true that content is the king but now it has travelled further ahead and we can confidently say that ‘Interactive content is the King’.<br /><br /><br />When you share content that is not just meant to be read, but also needs engagement with the creator of the content, then it qualifies as interactive content.<br /><br />It’s so true when William Comcowich, CEO of CyberAlert, says,<br /><br /><br />“Content marketing is less about the words and more about the experiences you create for the audience.”<br /><br /><br />Interactive content should be able to get the email address of your audience, increase lead generation, improve link building, drive more traffic to your website and eventually more signups.<br /><br />There are different types of interactive content such as quizzes, polls, surveys, videos, calculators, personality tests, assessments, and much more that you can incorporate into your content strategy.<br /><br />For example, look at the health survey. It is engaging enough to convince people to complete all the steps.<br />Content That Evokes Strong Emotions<br />According to research reports of Wharton Business School, there is a strong relationship between emotion and virality, regardless of whether it is positive or negative.<br /><br />When a person sees an emotional video, image or text, the content is bound to be shared in their social circles.  This type of content has higher chances of creating emotional engagement with your audience.<br /><br />Create content based on 6 key emotions: joy, surprise, anger, fear, disgust and sadness.  Create a unique and strong message that can drive your audience to immediately share without thinking further. When your content triggers emotional response, it is sure to be shared.<br /><br />For example, the adorable Dear Kitten video series created by BuzzFeed has attracted millions of views on social media.<br /><br /><br />Conclusion<br /><br />If you are a social media marketer, then you are constantly looking at your content to check if there are likes, comments, shares and retweets for your posts. <br /><br />But have you really got the content that gets you the engagement? <br /><br />Have you really understood the kind of content that gets this social media attention? <br /><br />When you are eager and want to try out different types of content for your social media marketing strategy, then the above discussed 7 types of content will be able to help you to schedule engaging content on your social pages.

RELEASE: New Research Exposes Uneven Playing Field Between Communities and Companies Vying for Land Rights

Communities sacrifice decades navigating complex, expensive government processes that can force them to give up territory and rights, while companies quickly secure concessions on the same land

LIMA (July 11, 2018) —A new scramble for land is heating up across the developing world. Indigenous Peoples and communities are losing their land at alarming rates as companies rapidly expand operations across resource-rich Africa, Asia and Latin America. Although more than 50 percent of the world’s land is collectively held, indigenous groups and communities legally own just 10 percent of land globally. A new report from World Resources Institute finds that in many countries, the process to formalize land rights is extremely complex, costly and slow, taking up to 30 years or more — in the Philippines, the process requires 56 legally mandated steps, and in Indonesia, 21 different government entities are involved — but companies can typically secure long-term rights to land in just 30 days to five years. The report sheds light on the uneven playing field between companies and communities, and recommends a more transparent path forward.

One of the most comprehensive global reviews of how communities and companies formalize land rights, The Scramble for Land Rights: Reducing Inequity between Communities and Companies, looks at the discrepancies in time, money, land size and rights granted in 15 countries. Without formal legal recognition, communities struggle to protect their land from being developed or exploited.

WRI finds that, in addition to a much more complicated and opaque process to formalize land tenure, Indigenous Peoples and communities are often forced to give up significant areas of their customary land or lose rights to valuable natural resources like clean water or medicinal plants, crippling their livelihoods. And it isn’t only communities that are hurt by these practices — well-intentioned companies that follow government policies to acquire land are at a competitive disadvantage compared to businesses that take shortcuts, exploit loopholes and begin commercial operations before obtaining final approvals.

“Governments must take a hard look at how their land rights policies favor companies, especially those that clear forests, burn carbon-rich peatland or otherwise exhaust natural resources, over indigenous communities who have long protected the world’s forests,” said Victoria Tauli-Corpuz, the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. “This unfair playing field not only poses grave environmental risks, but it also threatens the livelihoods of more than 2.5 billion people who depend on collectively held land.”

In Indonesia, Indigenous Peoples have spent upwards of 15 years trying to formalize their rights. Around 20 communities have secured title to about 20,000 hectares of land, while palm oil companies, which can secure commercial land rights in just three years, own plantations that cover close to 14 million hectares of Indonesia.

Communities across rural Uganda wade through a 17-step process requiring approval from institutions that the government has yet to establish in some districts, whereas companies glide through the process in as few as five steps.

The report finds that, in most countries, companies are allowed to secure land rights without screening for existing community claims to the same land, and that even when governments require community consultations, businesses only make token gestures instead of sincerely trying to obtain the community’s free, prior and informed consent.

“When companies acquire land, those acting in bad faith can often find legal, extralegal or illegal shortcuts. This not only increases the risk of land conflicts, but also puts more ethical companies at a competitive disadvantage,” said Laura Notess, lead author of the report and a lawyer with WRI’s Land and Resource Rights Initiative. “For instance, one company in Mozambique spent two years consulting communities, while others skipped this step altogether, obtaining land in as a little as three months.”

This unfair playing field pushes out some of the best stewards of the world’s forests. Too often, investors who obtain rights to community lands deforest vast areas and exhaust natural resources in one community, then move on to the next, whereas Indigenous Peoples and rural communities have sustainably managed their land for generations. According to Global Forest Watch, the world lost 15.8 million hectares of tropical forest in 2017, but the rate of tree cover loss was less than half in community and indigenous lands compared to elsewhere.

WRI launched the report in Lima, Peru, in partnership with AsM Law Office, the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR), Rainforest Foundation United States (RFUS), Rights and Resources Initiative (RRI) and Ujamaa Community Resource Team who led field research in Indonesia, Peru and Tanzania. Experts spoke alongside government officials and indigenous leaders fighting to secure formal land rights in the Peruvian Amazon.

In Peru, companies can easily find shortcuts around burdensome requirements, such as purchasing small plots of land and converting them into large agroindustrial concessions to avoid environmental regulations and clear swaths of the Amazon. Indigenous communities do not have this option, and so when land disputes or other obstacles arise, efforts to title their land grind to a halt.

For example, in 2014, large sections of the Santa Clara de Uchunya community’s ancestral forests started disappearing. Without the community’s knowledge or consent, the regional government had given away rights to many small plots of their land, which Plantaciones de Pucallpa, a palm oil company with known environmental and legal troubles, bought up.

“For communities like mine, our land is our livelihood. In Ucayali, a palm oil company has shut us out from land that is our home, cutting down the forest and leaving us with no choice but to fight back in court,” said Carlos Hoyos Soria, leader of the Santa Clara de Uchunya community in Peru “At the same time, our application for land title has stalled for several years, during which time we’ve been met with death threats and violent attacks against our community. We fear for our lives, but without our land, we lose everything.”

Tensions like these are escalating across many of the 15 countries studied in The Scramble for Land Rights. The disparities between communities and companies breed hostility that can quickly devolve into conflict, particularly in Latin America where hundreds of environmental defenders have been murdered in the last decade amid escalating violence. Conflicts range from boundary disputes with neighbors to overlapping concessions, and they can tie communities up in bureaucratic red tape for years.

"What is at stake is the fate of the Amazon and its indigenous populations. To do nothing and turn our backs on these communities is too dangerous,” said Hildebrando Antonio Collantes Zegarra, Head of the Indigenous Communities Office, Subnational Government of Ucayali for the Ministry of Agriculture in Lima. “Governments, including Peru, must do more to protect Indigenous Peoples’ and communities’ land rights. They must simplify processes to document community land, strengthen Indigenous Peoples’ access to titling and provide more resources to mediate intensifying conflicts fueled by the rise of drug trafficking, illegal logging and illicit land trafficking.

To level the playing field between communities and companies, the report calls on countries to make overly complex procedures clearer and more accessible, amend steps that impose difficult, undue burdens on communities and uniformly enforce corporate land acquisition policies. And around the world, better conflict resolution mechanisms are needed to address competing third-party claims and increase community consultations that ensure free, prior and informed consent (FPIC).

International decision-makers also have a role to play in supporting communities’ efforts to secure land tenure, from building local capacity to map community land to providing legal and financial assistance throughout land titling processes. Time and time again, research has shown that recognizing indigenous and community land rights is a proven solution to conserving forests, mitigating climate change, reducing poverty and catalyzing sustainable development.

SELECT QUOTES FROM PARTNERS:

Quote from Anne-Sophie Gindroz, Southeast Asia Regional Facilitator, Rights and Resources Initiative (RRI):
“Communities cannot compete with the pace and scale at which their lands and forests are signed away by governments to the corporate sector. Without urgent measures to secure claimed territories, there will be more conflicts, violence and injustice, hampering sustainable development.”

Quote from Anne Larson, Principle Scientist, Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR):
“Our research shows that in Peru, titling of indigenous lands is still long, complicated, costly. Despite important advances, the procedure remains overregulated and faces inconsistencies. Even in cases where communities have been able to title their lands, many still face problems with their titles that hinder their ability to benefit and make them vulnerable to invasions, changes in law and, in general, more powerful actors. Mechanisms to address conflicts should be central in the titling process, as the inability to address conflict situations impedes success for both communities and forests.”

Quote from Christine Halvorson, Program Director, Rainforest Foundation US (RFUS):
"Securing indigenous land rights is one of the most effective ways to protect the forest. Securing indigenous territories in Guyana would contribute to the country's international commitments to both the environment and human rights."

Quote from Dean Affandi, Research Analyst, World Resources Institute Indonesia (WRI):
“In Indonesia, the rights to secure lands are often compounded by the lack of a single national reference map with all data on land utilization, causing overlapping boundaries of various entities such as protected areas, customary land, mining areas, forest concessions, smallholders’ parcels, village areas and more. The Indonesian government’s One Map Policy is aimed to resolve disagreements over land assignment, expedite government’s commitment to pass the long-delayed law on indigenous people’s rights and restore justice for communities to enable the achievement of a more sustainable land use.”

COMUNICADO DE PRENSA: Una nueva investigación revela un campo de juego desigual entre las comunidades y las empresas que compiten por los derechos sobre las tierras

Las comunidades sacrifican décadas lidiando con los complejos y caros procesos gubernamentales que pueden forzarlas a abandonar territorio y derechos, mientras que las compañías pueden asegurarse rápidamente la concesión de la misma tierra

LIMA (11 de julio de 2018)—Un nuevo conflicto por la tierra está creciendo en el mundo en desarrollo. Los pueblos indígenas y las comunidades están perdiendo su tierra a ritmos alarmantes mientras que las compañías expanden rápidamente sus operaciones a lo largo de África, Asia y América Latina, continentes ricos en recursos. Aunque más del 50 por ciento de la tierra del mundo está en manos colectivas, los grupos indígenas y las comunidades solo son dueños legalmente del 10 por ciento de la tierra a nivel global. Un nuevo informe del World Resources Institute muestra que en muchos países, el proceso para formalizar los derechos de la tierra es extremadamente complejo, costoso y lento, y tarda hasta 30 años o más. En las Filipinas, el proceso requiere 56 pasos obligatorios por ley; en Indonesia, hay involucrados 21 entes gubernamentales diferentes. Pero las compañías normalmente pueden asegurarse derechos a largo plazo sobre la tierra desde un plazo de tan solo 30 días a cinco años. El estudio echa luz sobre la desigualdad de condiciones entre las empresas y las comunidades, y recomienda un camino más transparente.

Uno de los estudios globales más exhaustivos sobre cómo las comunidades y las empresas formalizan derechos sobre la tierra, The Scramble for Land Rights: Reducing Inequity between Communities and Companies analiza las discrepancias en tiempo, dinero, tamaño de la tierra y derechos otorgados en 15 países. Sin reconocimiento legal formal, a las comunidades se les dificulta proteger su tierra y evitar que se desarrolle o explote. El WRI descubre que, además de un proceso mucho más complicado y opaco para formalizar la tenencia de la tierra, los pueblos indígenas y las comunidades suelen ser forzados a abandonar áreas significativas de su tierra consuetudinaria o pierden derechos sobre valiosos recursos naturales como agua limpia o plantas medicinales, lo que coarta su sustento. Y no son solo las comunidades las dañadas por estas prácticas: empresas bien intencionadas que siguen las políticas gubernamentales para adquirir tierra tienen una desventaja competitiva con respecto a las compañías que toman atajos, aprovechan vacíos legales y empiezan operaciones comerciales antes de obtener las autorizaciones finales.

“Los gobiernos deben examinar con rigurosidad cómo sus políticas sobre los derechos de la tierra favorecen especialmente a aquellos que talan bosques, queman turberas ricas en carbono o agotan de otros modos los recursos naturales, frente a las comunidades que desde hace largo tiempo protegen los bosques del mundo," dijo Victoria Tauli-Corpuz, Relatora Especial de las Naciones Unidas sobre los derechos de los pueblos indígenas. "Estas condiciones injustas no solo plantean graves riesgos ambientales, sino que también amenazan el medio de vida de más de 2.500 millones de personas que dependen de la tierra colectiva."

En Indonesia, los pueblos indígenas han pasado más de 15 años tratando de formalizar sus derechos. Aproximadamente 20 comunidades han logrado el título de menos de 20.000 hectáreas de tierra, mientras que las productoras de aceite de palma, que pueden asegurarse los derechos comerciales a la tierra en solo tres años, poseen plantaciones que cubren casi 14 millones de hectáreas en Indonesia.

Las comunidades de la Uganda rural atraviesan procesos de 17 pasos que requieren aprobación de instituciones que el Gobierno aún tiene que establecer en algunos distritos, mientras que las compañías completan el proceso en tan solo cinco pasos.

El informe revela que, en muchos países, a las empresas se les permite obtener derechos sobre la tierra sin verificar si existen reclamos de comunidades sobre la misma tierra, y que, incluso cuando los gobiernos requieren consultas con las comunidades, las compañías solo hacen gestos simbólicos en lugar de tratar sinceramente de obtener el consentimiento previo, libre e informado de la comunidad.

“Cuando las compañías adquieren tierra, aquellas que actúan de mala fe pueden con frecuencia encontrar atajos legales, extralegales o ilegales. Esto no solo aumenta el riesgo de conflictos por la tierra, sino que también pone a las empresas más éticas en desventaja competitiva," dijo Laura Notess, autora del informe y abogada integrante de la Iniciativa para los Derechos a la Tierra y los Recursos del WRI. "Por ejemplo, una compañía de Mozambique pasó dos años consultando con las comunidades, mientras que otras se saltaron por completo este paso y obtuvieron la tierra en tan solo tres meses.”

Estas condiciones injustas desalojan a los mejores guardianes de los bosques del mundo. Demasiado a menudo, los inversores que obtienen derechos a tierras comunitarias desforestan vastas áreas y agotan los recursos naturales en una comunidad y luego pasan a otra, mientras que por generaciones los pueblos indígenas y las comunidades rurales administraron sustentablemente su tierra. Según Global Forest Watch, el mundo perdió 15,8 millones de hectáreas de bosques tropicales en 2017, pero la tasa de pérdida de cobertura arbórea fue menos de la mitad en tierras en manos de comunidades y pueblos indígenas en comparación con cualquier otro lado.

El WRI lanzó el informe en Lima, Perú, en sociedad con AsM Law Office, el Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR), Rainforest Foundation United States (RFUS), Iniciativa por los Derechos y los Recursos (RRI) y Ujamaa Community Resource Team, que lideró el trabajo de campo en Indonesia, Perú y Tanzania. Especialistas hablaron junto con funcionarios gubernamentales y líderes indígenas que luchan por asegurarse los derechos formales de la tierra en la Amazonia peruana.

En Perú, las empresas pueden encontrar fácilmente atajos para sortear los engorrosos requerimientos, como comprar pequeños lotes y convertirlos en grandes concesiones agroindustriales para evitar regulaciones ambientales y despejar franjas de la Amazonia. Las comunidades indígenas no tienen esta opción, y cuando surgen disputas por la tierra u otros obstáculos, los esfuerzos por lograr el título de su tierra quedan en un punto muerto.

Por ejemplo, en 2014, grandes secciones de los bosques ancestrales de la comunidad de Santa Clara de Uchunya empezaron a desaparecer. Sin el conocimiento o el consentimiento de la comunidad, el gobierno regional había otorgado derechos sobre pequeños lotes de su tierra, que compró Plantaciones de Pucallpa, una productora de aceite de palma con conocidos problemas ambientales y legales.

“Para comunidades como la mía, nuestra tierra es nuestro sustento. En Ucayali, una compañía productora de aceite de palma nos desalojó de nuestra tierra que es nuestro hogar, redujo los bosques y no nos dejó otra opción que contraatacar en los tribunales," dijo Carlos Hoyos Soria, líder de la comunidad de Santa Clara de Uchunya en Perú. "Al mismo tiempo nuestros trámites de titulación de la tierra vienen siendo frenados desde hace años, y en ese periodo hemos recibido amenazas de muerte y sufrimos ataques violentos contra nuestra comunidad. Tenemos miedo por nuestra vida, pero sin nuestra tierra perdemos todo.”

Tensiones como estas están intensificándose en muchos de los 15 países estudiados en The Scramble for Land Rights. Las disparidades entre comunidades y compañías alimentan una hostilidad que puede rápidamente convertirse en conflicto, particularmente en América Latina, donde cientos de defensores ambientales fueron asesinados en la última década en medio de una violencia creciente. Los conflictos abarcan desde disputas limítrofes con vecinos a concesiones solapadas, y pueden atar a las comunidades en trámites burocráticos durante años.

"Lo que está en juego es el destino de la Amazonia y sus poblaciones indígenas. No hacer nada y dar la espalda a estas comunidades es demasiado peligroso," dijo Hildebrando Antonio Collantes Zegarra, encargado de la Oficina de Comunidades Indígenas, del gobierno subnacional de Ucayali para el Ministerio de Agricultura en Lima. "Los gobiernos, incluido el de Perú, deben hacer más para proteger los derechos sobre la tierra de los pueblos indígenas y las comunidades. Deben simplificar los procesos para documentar la tierra, fortalecer el acceso de los pueblos indígenas a los títulos y brindar más recursos para mediar en los crecientes conflictos alimentados por el aumento del tráfico de drogas, la tala ilegal y el tráfico ilícito de tierras.”

Para nivelar las condiciones entre comunidades y compañías, el informe llama a los países a hacer que los extremadamente complejos procedimientos sean más claros y más accesibles, a corregir los pasos que imponen cargas difíciles e indebidas a las comunidades y a implementar uniformemente las políticas de adquisición de tierra corporativa. Y en todo el mundo se necesitan mejores mecanismos de resolución de conflictos para abordar los reclamos de terceros en competencia y aumentar las consultas con las comunidades para asegurar un consentimiento libre, previo e informado (CLPI).

Quienes están en posiciones de toma de decisiones a nivel internacional también tienen un rol que cumplir en el apoyo de los esfuerzos de las comunidades para asegurar la tenencia de la tierra, que va desde construir capacidad local para mapear la tierra comunitaria hasta proporcionar asistencia legal y financiera para los procesos de titulación. Una y otra vez, la investigación muestra que reconocer el derecho de los indígenas y las comunidades a la tierra es una solución comprobada para conservar los bosques, mitigar el cambio climático, reducir la pobreza y catalizar el desarrollo sostenible.

CITAS DESTACADAS DE LOS SOCIOS:

Anne-Sophie Gindroz, Facilitadora Regional para el Sudeste Asiático, Iniciativa para los Derechos y los Recursos: “Las comunidades no pueden competir con el ritmo y la escala en que sus tierras y sus bosques están siendo otorgados al sector corporativo por los gobiernos. Sin medidas urgentes para asegurar los territorios reclamados, habrá más conflictos, violencia e injusticia, lo que implica un obstáculo para el desarrollo sostenible.”

Anne Larson, Jefa de Científicos, Center for International Forestry Research: “Nuestra investigación muestra que en Perú el proceso de titulación de tierras indígenas es largo, complicado y costoso. A pesar de importantes avances, el procedimiento sigue estando sobrerregulado y presenta inconsistencias. Aun en casos en las que las comunidades han logrado el título de sus tierras, muchas todavía enfrentan problemas que obstaculizan su capacidad de beneficiarse de su título y que las hacen vulnerables a invasiones, a cambios en la ley y, en general, a actores más poderosos. Debería ser básico contar con mecanismos para manejar los conflictos en el proceso de titulación, ya que la incapacidad de lidiar con situaciones de conflicto impide el éxito tanto para las comunidades como para los bosques.”

Christine Halvorson, Directora de Programa, Rainforest Foundation US: “Asegurar los derechos sobre la tierra de los indígenas es una de las formas más efectivas de proteger el bosque. En Guyana esto contribuiría a los compromisos internacionales que el país ha suscrito en materia de derechos ambientales y humanos.”

          INFOGRAPHIC: Experience the Unequal Ways Communities and Companies Get Land Rights      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Growing demand for natural resources is pushing companies onto Indigenous Peoples’ and rural communities’ land. These communities, who collectively hold at least half the world’s land but legally own only a small portion, are losing their homes to palm oil plantations, loggers and more.

Some indigenous groups are trying to protect their land by obtaining legal titles to it. But in many countries, the processes for communities to formalize land rights are significantly more complex than for companies. Communities can spend decades navigating government-ordered procedures. Wealthy corporations can secure rights to the same land in 30 days to five years.

The infographic below allows you to navigate the process for a community seeking formal land rights in Indonesia, versus for a company securing an oil palm concession.

Although Indonesia has made progress, including a landmark 2013 court case that opened the door for formalizing indigenous forest rights, hurdles remain. Only about 20 indigenous groups have secured formal land rights to about 20,000 hectares. Palm oil plantations cover 14 million hectares.

          Trump Slams NATO: "Pay 2% Of GDP IMMEDIATELY" Or Even 4%      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Update: One look at the 'family' photo and it's clear there are a lot of 'gaps' between these alliance leaders...

*  *  *

President Trump is, rightly, stirring the pot in Europe today, reportedly demanding that NATO leaders increase their defense spending targets from 2 to 4%, according to the Bulgarian president.

“President Trump, who spoke, raised the question not just to reach 2%, today, but set a new target – 4%,” Bulgarian president Rumen Radev told reporters, according to Reuters, citing BNR public radio.

“NATO is not a bourse a which one can buy security. But yes, on the other hand, President Trump is right, as each country should build its effective capabilities, and the unwillingness with which Bulgaria spends money on defense is obvious.”

As a reminder, US only spends 3.57% of GDP (which is the most), and as one French official noted, "it wasn’t a demand, rather just a mention.".

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders confirmed that:

"During the president's remarks today at the NATO summit, he suggested that countries not only meet their commitment of 2 per cent of their GDP on defence spending, but that they increase it to 4 per cent," Sanders said after the closed-door meeting of NATO leaders.  

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg was reluctant to endorse such a move.

“I will focus on what we have agreed and we have agreed that we committed to the pledge increasing defense spending to 2 percent,” he told reporters. “And let’s start with that. We have a way to go.”

"We do have disagreements, but most importantly, we have decisions that are pushing this alliance forward and making us stronger," Stoltenberg said.

"At the end of the day, we all agree that North America and Europe are safer together."

And then President Trump doubled-down on his earlier shot at Germany:

"Germany, as far as I'm concerned, is captive to Russia because it's getting so much of its energy from Russia," Trump told NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg in a fiery on-camera exchange that was among the harshest in the history of the post-World War II alliance.

"We have to talk about the billions and billions of dollars that's being paid to the country we're supposed to be protecting you against," Trump said, referring to European purchases of Russian natural gas.

Blasting "What good is NATO if Germany is paying Russia billions of dollars for gas and energy?"

Trump then returned to the broader NATO membership, asking "Why are their only 5 out of 29 countries that have met their commitment? The U.S. is paying for Europe’s protection, then loses billions on Trade." 

Trump ended with ALL CAPS: "Must pay 2% of GDP IMMEDIATELY, not by 2025."

As a reminder, NATO members agreed in 2014 to spend at least 2 percent of their respective GDP on defense by 2024. The goals are also for each country's own defense budget, not payments into the alliance.

One glance at the current spending levels and it is clear that Trump is right.

As we noted previously, Trump is quite right that America’s NATO allies, particularly Germany and Canada, don’t spend enough on defense.  Germany is reported to have less than twenty operational tanks. Canada’s armed forces appear to be smaller than the New York City police department.

But the Europeans ask, ‘defense against whom?’   The Soviet Union was a huge threat back in the Cold War when the mighty Red Army had 55,000 tanks pointed West.  Today, Russia’s land and naval power has evaporated.  Russia has perhaps 5,500 main battle tanks in active service and a similar number in storage, a far cry from its armored juggernaut of the Cold War. 

More important, Russia’s military budget for 2018 was only $61 billion, actually down 17% from last year.  That’s 4.3% of GDP.  Russia is facing hard economic times.  Russia has slipped to third place in military spending after the US, China and Saudi Arabia.   The US and its wealthy allies account for two thirds of world military spending.  In fact, the US total military budget (including for nuclear weapons and foreign wars) is about $1 trillion, 50% of total US government discretionary spending.

In addition, Russia must defend a vast territory from the Baltic to the Pacific.  The US is fortunate in having Mexico and Canada as neighbors.  Russia has North Korea, China, India, the Mideast and NATO to watch.  As with its naval forces, Russia’s armies are too far apart to lend one another mutual support. Two vulnerable rail lines are Russia’s main land link between European Russia and its Pacific Far East.

Trump’s supplemental military budget boost this year of $54 billion is almost as large as Russia’s entire 2018 military budget.  As for Trump’s claim that Europe is not paying its fair share of NATO expenses, note that that Britain and France combined together spend more on their military forces than Russia.

In Europe, it’s hard to find many people who still consider Russia a serious threat except for some tipsy Danes, right wing Swedes, and assorted Russophobic East Europeans.  The main fear of Russia seems concentrated in the minds of American neoconservatives, media, and rural Trump supporters, all victims of the bizarre anti-Russian hysteria that has gripped the US.

Still, it all seems smiles in Brussels for now...
