          Inizia il camino verso i Mondiali. Gli Azzurrini superano il primo test contro il San Marino       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
La Nazionale Under 20 supera il suo primo test stagionale contro il San Marino. Una doppietta dell’atalantino Andrea Colpani, il rigore realizzato da Gabriele Gori, e la quarta rete segnata da Lorenzo Valeau regalano un rotondo successo (4-0) alla Nazionale giovanile guidata dal neo allenatore Paolo Nicolato, reduce dall’argento conquistato con la Under 19 al campionato Europeo di categoria. Oggi non erano presenti i giocatori protagonisti della rassegna continentale disputata in Finlandia, ma il cammino degli Azzurrini verso i Mondiali Under 20 che a maggio del prossimo anno si svolgeranno in Polonia, è iniziato oggi con questa amichevole disputata a Bagno di Romagna.

Il match si risolve già nel primo tempo quando al 28’ Gori viene atterrato in area da Zavoli in uscita e dagli 11 metri l’attaccante con un lungo trascorso nelle giovanili della Fiorentina, in prestito al Foggia, non sbaglia. Il raddoppio arriva al 46’ con Colpani che da trenta metri fa partire un violento sinistro che trafigge l’estremo difensore sanmarinese. Il numero dieci dell’Atalanta si ripete con le stesse modalità al 63’ grazie a un rasoterra che si infila sulla destra di Zavoli. Chiude la partita Lorenzo Valeau che, servito in area da Gori, di piatto sinistro mette in rete il definitivo 4-0.

Soddisfatto il tecnico Azzurro al termine della partita: “A prescindere dal risultato – dichiara Nicolato -, ho avuto la possibilità di vedere nuovi giocatori e sono contento per l’atteggiamento che hanno tenuto in campo. Ho visto serietà, applicazione e tanta voglia di esserci: sono tutte cose di cui terremo conto nella formazione del gruppo che dovrà partecipare ai Mondiali Under 20 del prossimo anno”.

Map 3483539 960 720 Una de las cosas que más me ha gustado hacer siempre es perderme en la contemplación de mapas, ya sean políticos como geográficos. Paseo los ojos por los nombres de lugares que quizá nunca pisaré, resigo fronteras imposibles, trato de imaginar cómo viajan las personas de la península a esa isla en mitad de un lago, fabulo con la posibilidad de recorrer grandes regiones en coche...

Ahora los mapas, tras la digitalización, ya no son tan necesarios como antes. Ponemos una dirección, nos encomendamos a San Google, y simplemente nos dejamos llevar. Sin embargo, el siguiente paso (de hecho, ya empieza a pasar), será la configuración de mapas emocionales.

El Yo en el mapa

World 1264062 960 720

El problema de los mapas actuales es que son estáticos y muestran exactamente las mismas cosas a todo el mundo. A no ser que fijemos filtros, un tanto generales, a propósito de que se reflejen restaurantes, cafeterías o supermercados, por ejemplo, los mapas son entidades a las que nosotros nos debemos adaptar.

Pero ¿y si sucediera justo al revés? ¿Y si los mapas se adaptaran a nosotros? ¿Y si en los mapas aparecieran reflejadas las cosas que realmente nos interesan a nosotros y solo a nosotros? ¿Y si pudiéramos navegar por mapas emocionales, tanto nuestros como de las personas que apreciamos por alguna razón?

De momento, estas ideas (que no tardarán en llegar), ya empiezan a vislumbrarse en algunos proyectos o pruebas piloto. Algo muy parecido fue lo que llevó a cabo el artista y diseñador londinense Christian Nold gracias a la tecnología de Google Earth.

Hands 600497 960 720

Equipó a 100 voluntarios en Greenwich, Inglaterra, con equipos que medían la respuesta galvánica de la piel y la posición GPS. Los voluntarios solo debían salir por la ciudad y tomar nota de cualquier emoción que sintieran.

Nold unió todos los datos de seis meses de seguimiento con Google Earth, generando un mapa emocional al que llamó biomapping. Al parecer, los lugares que suscitaban emociones más fuertes eran las cruces de las carreteras donde se señalaba que se había producido un accidente de tráfico.

Más tarde se amplió el proyecto para concebir mapas emocionales de Suomenlinna, en Finlandia; Siena, en Italia; Róterdam, en Holanda; San Francisco, en Estado Unidos, y otra media docena de sitios en Inglaterra.

Pronto, podremos nuestros mapas se irán configurando en tiempo real en función de los lugares que mayormente visitamos o en los que nos quedamos más tiempo detenidos, contemplando. También en función de los lugares que nos emocionan o nos pasan cosas más interesantes (a nuestro juicio). Dentro de poco cada viaje será completamente diferente al de los demás. A no ser que decidamos copiar al dedillo el de los demás.

          London ETO promotes Hong Kong's arts and culture in Finland with Hong Kong Children's Choir (with photos)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
     The Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office, London (London ETO) promoted Hong Kong's thriving arts and cultural life by co-presenting a concert with the Hong Kong Children's Choir (HKCC) at the Finlandia Chamber Music Hall in Helsinki, Finland, on August 6 (Helsinki time).
 
     Once again performing in Finland after its previous appearance in 2012, the HKCC, heading towards its 50th anniversary, delivered a special concert that also featured the renowned Tapiola Choir from Espoo, Finland. The music comprised a varied repertoire of songs from East and West, including works by some of Hong Kong's best-known and up-and-coming composers. Conducted by its Music Director and Principal Conductor, Kathy Fok, as well as conductors Dominic Lam and Vivian Suen, the HKCC performed, among other pieces, "Ave Maria" by Giulio Caccini, "Laudate Dominum" by John August Pamintuan and a specially commissioned piece by Darius Lim, "Children of Light". It also performed pieces by its resident composer Steve Ho: "Let Music Flow", "Kung Fu", "MTR Song" and "In Search of Plum Flowers in the Rockies".
 
     The Tapiola Choir, conducted by Pasi Hyökki, performed several songs composed by Finnish composers at the concert. They also performed "The Ritual Dance" – a spectacular five-part "primitive music" composition by Jukka Linkola in which they sang as a mass choir alongside the HKCC and the Yuen Long DAC Treble Choir, another guest choir joining the concert. The concert ended with the theme song of the HKCC's 50th anniversary, "I Just Want to Sing", performed by the HKCC and the Tapiola Choir together.
 
     Speaking at the opening of the concert, the Director-General of the London ETO, Ms Priscilla To, welcomed the choirs and talked about the closer collaboration between Hong Kong and Finland. "We are pleased to see that Finland and Hong Kong have in recent years built even closer ties on various fronts, including arts and culture collaboration. Last year, we collaborated with a number of Hong Kong arts groups, including the Musicus Society, the Hong Kong String Orchestra and the Hong Kong Arts Centre, to organise music concerts and a comics exhibition in Helsinki, Espoo, and Kauniainen," she said.
 
     "In addition to being an international financial and business centre, Hong Kong has emerged as a leading arts and culture hub in the region. Orchestras, jazz ensembles, international film and arts festivals, art and design exhibitions and street performances reflect the diversity and vibrancy of Hong Kong's cultural life."
 
     Founded in 1969, the HKCC has grown into a diversified arts organisation for children. The HKCC has gained international acclaim for its performances and has earned a reputation as one of the best children's choirs in the world. The Helsinki performance was part of a European tour in which the HKCC also took part in a major international choral festival in Tallinn, Estonia.

          AS Akan Jatuhkan Sanksi ke Rusia atas Penggunaan Racun Saraf Novichok      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Liputan6.com, Washington DC - Pemerintah Amerika Serikat (AS) mengatakan akan memberlakukan sanksi-sanksi baru terhadap Rusia menyusul tudingan bahwa Negara Beruang Merah menggunakan agen saraf Novichok terhadap mantan seorang agen ganda yang tinggal di Inggris.

Sergei Skripal dan putrinya, Yulia, ditemukan tidak sadarkan diri di sebuah bangku di Kota Salisbury pada bulan Maret.

Serangan racun saraf tersebut menyebabkan kedua korban sakit parah dan baru pulih setelah beberapa minggu perawatan di rumah sakit.

Dikutip dari BBC pada Kamis (9/8/2018), penyelidikan oleh otoritas Inggris menyalahkan Rusia atas serangan itu, tetapi Kremlin membantah keras terlibat di dalamnya.

Dalam pernyataan yang dirilis pada Rabu, 8 Agustus, Kementerian Luar Negeri AS menegaskan bahwa pihaknya menerapkan langkah-langkah serius terhadap Rusia atas insiden tersebut.

Juru bicara Kemlu AS Heather Nauert mengatakan telah dipastikan bahwa Rusia "menggunakan senjata kimia atau biologi yang melanggar hukum internasional, atau memanfaatkan senjata kimia atau biologis yang mematikan terhadap warga negaranya sendiri."

Di lain pihak, pemerintah Inggris menyambut baik langkah itu.

"Tanggapan internasional yang kuat terhadap penggunaan senjata kimia di Salisbury mengirim pesan tegas ke Rusia bahwa tindak provokatifnya, perilaku sembrono ini, tidak bisa diterima," tulis Kementerian Luar Negeri Inggris dalam sebuah pernyataan.

Sanksi baru akan berlaku sekitar 22 Agustus mendatang, yang berisikan sasaran utama pada kegiatan ekspor komponen elektronik sensitif dan teknologi lainnya.

Kemlu AS mengatakan sanksi "lebih kejam" akan menyusul dalam 90 hari setelahnya jika Rusia gagal memberikan jaminan, yang dapat memastikan bahwa mereka tidak akan lagi menggunakan senjata kimia, atau juga memungkinkan inspeksi di tempat oleh PBB.

 

Simak video pilihan berikut: 

 

 

Bukan Sanksi Pertama

Seorang pejabat Gedung Putih mengatakan sanksi terhadap Rusia merupakan yang ketiga kalinya dijatuhkan oleh AS terkait isu penggunaan senjata kimia terhadap warga sipil.

Sebelumnya, AS pernah menjatuhkan sanksi serupa kepada Suriah, dan yang paling baru pada Korea Utara atas kasus pembunuhan Kim Jong-nam--saudara tiri pemimpin Kim Jong-un--yang meninggal karena agen saraf VX di Bandara Kuala Lumpur.

Kembali pada Rusia, AS sejatinya telah menjatuhkan sanksi terlebih dulu pada lima perusahaan dan tiga orang Rusia sebagai tanggapan atas dugaan serangan siber Moskow ke Washington.

Mereka yang terkena sanksi dilarang berpartisipasi dalam setiap transaksi yang melibatkan sistem keuangan AS.

Menteri Keuangan Steven Mnuchin mengatakan tindakan itu untuk melawan "aktor jahat" yang bekerja untuk "meningkatkan kemampuan siber ofensif Rusia".

          Wanita Jepang: Skandal Pembatasan Mahasiswi di Universitas Kedokteran Terkuak, Itu Rahasia Umum      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Liputan6.com, Tokyo - Sebagian kaum Hawa di Jepang mengaku telah lama menduga tentang kecurangan dalam proses penerimaan mahasiswi di Tokyo Medical University, yang dalam beberapa waktu terakhir, dituding mendiskreditkan pelamar wanita.

Dikutip dari Japan Times pada Kamis (9/8/2018), kecurigaan itu didukung oleh fakta bahwa rasio wanita yang telah lulus ujian medis nasional, secara konsisten tetap pada kisaran 30 persen selama hampir 20 tahun.

"Kami beberapa kali mendengar desas-desus bahwa universitas kedokteran berusaha mengecilkan proporsi pelajar wanita," kata Ruriko Tsushima, seorang dokter kandungan dan kepala Tsushima Ruriko Women's Life Clinic di distrik Ginza, Tokyo.

Dokter wanita lain, yang saat ini bekerja di sebuah rumah sakit swasta di Tokyo, juga mengatakan tindakan seksisme itu adalah "rahasia umum" di kalangan kaum hawa yang mendaftar ke berbagai sekolah kedokteran Jepang.

"Saya yakin banyak pelamar menyadari bahwa syarat masuk ditetapkan lebih tinggi bagi wanita di beberapa universitas. Isu ini berkali-kali dibahas di obrolan sehari-hari ketika saya masih duduk di bangku SMA," ujar seorang sumber wanita yang meminta identitasnya dirahasiakan.

"Saya tidak ingin menunjukkan pemahaman saya tentang praktik semacam itu. Tetapi saya juga sadar akan fakta bahwa banyak wanita berjuang untuk meraih pekerjaan sekaligus membesarkan anak, sehingga ada kalanya ameninggalkan tugas di rumah sakit, yang bisa mengakibatkan kekurangan staf, dan ini merupakan alasan mengapa Universitas Kedokteran Tokyo berusaha membenarkan praktek curang tersebut," lanjut sumber terkait menjelaskan.

Ditambahkan oleh sumber tersebut, bahwa sangat sulit bagi wanita untuk terus mengejar karier di dunia kedokteran ketika memiliki anak, terutama di departemen tertentu, seperti operasi misalnya, di mana dokter diharapkan bekerja berjam-jam dan selalu siap sepanjang waktu.

Meskipun belakangan semakin banyak rumah sakit menyediakan fasilitas ramah keluarga, termasuk untuk para stafnya, namun hal tersebut masih lambat disadari oleh pihak universitas kesehatan di Jepang, di mana praktisi medis pria mendominasi posisi eksekutif.

Kyoko Tanebe, seorang dokter kandungan dan kepala Ladies 'Clinic We!, sebuah klinik kecil di Prefektur Toyama, mengatakan kondisi kerja tenaga medis akan membaik jika dokter wanita meningkat proporsinya, dan jika lebih banyak kaum hawa mengambil posisi manajerial.

"Saya percaya itu akan jauh lebih mudah untuk bekerja tidak hanya untuk wanita tetapi juga untuk pria. Tetapi dalam situasi saat ini, itu tidak mungkin terjadi dan saya sangat marah pada isu tersebut," kata Tanebe.

"Jika Anda pergi ke luar negeri, 50 persen dokter adalah wanita, dan ada banyak profesor wanita (di sekolah kedokteran)," katanya.

"Itu selalu membuat saya mempertanyakan keadaan Jepang, di mana kita jarang melihat seorang wanita di kursi profesor." lanjutnya prihatin.

Rendahnya Rasio Dokter di Jepang

Ilustrasi dokter perempuan (iStockphoto)#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Beberapa pengamat kesehatan menyebut Jepang memang tertinggal jauh dibandingkan negara lain dalam hal rasio dokter wanita.

Pada tahun 2015, pangsa dokter wanita di Jepang mencapai 20,3 persen, terendah di antara 34 negara menurut data yang dikumpulkan oleh Organisasi untuk Kerjasama Ekonomi dan Pembangunan. Latvia menduduki puncak teratas dengan raihan 74 persen, diikuti oleh Estonia 73 persen, Slovenia 62 persen dan Finlandia 58 persen.

Proporsi wanita bahkan lebih rendah di departemen yang dikenal memiliki jam kerja panjang, seperti di departemen bedah sebanyak 7,8 persen dan bedah saraf 5,2 persen, demikian menurut survei Kementerian Kesehatan Jepang pada 2014.

Seorang wanita berusia 30-an yang menolak disebutkan namanya menuturkan, ketika kaum hawa mengatakan kepada bos prianya bahwa dia hamil, maka dijawab: "Anda akan berhenti setelahnya, kan?"

"Ini dunia yang tertutup. Ini tidak seperti perusahaan di mana Anda dapat kembali ke posisi yang Anda pegang setelah mengambil cuti hamil," katanya.

"Di rumah sakit universitas, bahkan unggahan Anda di media sosial harus diputuskan oleh kebijaksanaan profesor. Setelah Anda pergi (untuk cuti melahirkan), tidak akan ada jalur karier yang menjanjikan setelahnya.'

Seorang sumber wanita lainnya, yang sama-sama berusia 30-an tahun dan pernah bekerja di sektor medis, mengatakan bahwa semua posisi penting, seperti profesor atau asisten profesor, didominasi oleh pria.

Dia mengatakan pernah ada seorang wanita dalam posisi manajemen, tetapi dia pergi setelah memiliki anak.

"Dia adalah dokter spesialis, seperti wanita super. Melihat orang berbakat seperti itu meninggalkan universitas membuat saya berpikir saya tidak bisa bekerja di sana jika saya punya anak," ujar sumber wanita yang sekarang bekerja di klinik kecil itu.

Di rumah sakit universitas, masih menurutnya, tidak ada dokter pengganti untuk staf yang mengambil cuti hamil.

"Menimbang bahwa mengambil cuti hamil akan semakin membebani rekan-rekan mereka yang sudah sibuk, sulit untuk tinggal di rumah sakit setelah memiliki anak," katanya lagi.

Tanebe dari Ladies 'Clinic We! di Toyama mengatakan bahwa bukan karena wanita cenderung mengambil cuti, melainkan inti masalahnya adalah terlalu banyak bekerja.

"Mereka menyalahkan wanita. Tetapi masalahnya adalah institusi medis yang tidak dapat mengubah cara kerja dokter," kata Tanebe.

"Saya senang bahwa skandal universitas terungkap, karena saya percaya, itu membuka kotak Pandora. Ada banyak masalah besar yang harus diketahui publik," lanjutnya.

          Un británico ha roto todos los récords de multas de tráfico en Dubai con un Lamborghini alquilado, ¡y se va de rositas!      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

La impunidad de los turistas en Dubai: te puedes ir del país acumulando multas por valor de miles de euros

En Dubai existe un verdadero chollo para el adinerado turista que visita este país y quiere pasarse pisando el acelerador a los mandos de un superdeportivo. La prueba la tenemos en este caso: un turista británico superó el límite de velocidad impuesto con un Lamborghini Huracán alquilado, acumulando multas por valor de 175.000 dírhams (unos 41.000 euros)... ¡en menos de cuatro horas! Pero, ¿a quién llegaron esas sanciones? Pues a la empresa de alquiler...

Tal y como detalla el medio emiratí The National, por ley, un turista puede abandonar los Emiratos Árabes Unidos a pesar de acumular multas de tráfico por miles de dírhams, ya que éstas van asociadas al dueño del coche. Normalmente, en estos casos, una empresa de alquiler o concesionario que ofrezca este servicio.

Por ello, pueden darse incidentes como el de este turista de Reino Unido, de 25 años de edad, que ni corto ni perezoso, se dedicó a superar el límite de velocidad en hasta 33 ocasiones por la autopista de Sheikh Zayed Road, una de las carreteras más largas de los Emiratos Árabes y que discurre entre varios de sus estados miembros partiendo de Dubai.

Hasta 230 km/h y pocos minutos entre infracción e infracción

Un británico ha roto todos los récords de multas de tráfico en Dubai con un Lamborghini alquilado, ¡y se va de rositas!

El infractor alquiló un Lamborghini Huracan a la empresa de alquiler dubaití Saeed Ali Rent a Car por dos días. El montante por disfrutar durante 48 horas del 'toro' y los 610 CV que rinde su V10 atmosférico ascendía a 6.000 dírhams, que al cambio actual está entorno a los 1.400 euros. Pero a la alquiladora no le ha salido a cuenta ni mucho menos.

Entre las 2:31 y 6:26 de la mañana, es decir menos de cuatro horas, el británico superó el límite de velocidad en más de 30 ocasiones, con un lapso entre infracciones separado por apenas minutos y, en dos casos, de menos de 60 segundos. Las velocidades registradas en las sanciones iban desde los 126 km/h a los 230 km/h.

La empresa de alquiler comenzó a recibir notificaciones de las multas de forma inmediata, contando 33 durante este periodo de tiempo y todas asociadas al deportivo italiano alquilado por el británico. Por ello, la entidad solicitó el pago de estas sanciones al cliente, él cual las rechazó.

Total desprotección

Un británico ha roto todos los récords de multas de tráfico en Dubai con un Lamborghini alquilado, ¡y se va de rositas!

Faris Iqbal ha detallado el caso ante la prensa, expresando la total vulnerabilidad que tienen ante casos como éste, debido a que la ley protege al turista en detrimento de los residentes con nacionalidad dubaití. El total acumulado en sanciones se traduce en 70,000 dírhams, a lo que hay que sumarle los más de 100.000 que deberán pagar a las autoridades para recuperar el automóvil de las dependencias policiales.

Y es que tal número de sanciones y la velocidad superada entrañan un delito contra la seguridad del tráfico, por lo que el superdeportivo quedará inmovilizado. De hecho, el vehículo aún no ha sido devuelto y está supuestamente aparcado en el hotel donde se aloja el británico, el Palm Jumeirah Hotel and Resort. Pero Iqbal defiende que no se atreve a ir a recuperarlo, porque inmediatamente será detenido por la policía a consecuencia de las infracciones cometidas.

Un británico ha roto todos los récords de multas de tráfico en Dubai con un Lamborghini alquilado, ¡y se va de rositas!

"Nosotros nos podemos hacernos cargo de esa cantidad de dinero. El culpable es él y es quién debe pagar, no nosotros", defiende. Existe una total desprotección de las entidades de alquiler y concesionarios en esta materia. Iqbal, al igual que Theo Mesures, propetario de PureDrive Rental, exigen a las autoridades un mayor control sobre estos infractores, que tienen total impunidad.

Igual que no se puede abandonar el país teniendo multas de tráfico pendientes en el caso de expatriados o residentes en otros países con nacionalidad en los Emiratos Árabes (éstos son detenidos en las aduanas y mostradores del aeropuerto), lo mismo debe ocurrir con el turismo, por mucho que ingrese dinero en las arcas del país. Es tan sencillo como incluirlos en una base de datos y realizar su seguimiento.

          Victor Negrescu: România exercită cu succes rolul de Preşedinţie din umbră la Consiliul Uniunii Europene      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
România exercită cu succes rolul de Preşedinţie din umbră la Consiliul Uniunii Europene, a afirmat ministrul delegat pentru Afaceri Europene, Victor Negrescu, care a trecut în revistă, în cadrul şedinţei săptămânale a Comitetului de Coordonare a Sistemului naţional de gestionare a Afacerilor Europene, evoluţiile înregistrate în cadrul procesului de pregătire pentru exercitarea Preşedinţiei Consiliului UE de către România în primul semestru al anului 2019, a informat miercuri MAE. "Suntem în grafic în ceea ce priveşte procesul de pregătire pentru asumarea acestui mandat, pe toate dimensiunile sale. Cel mai bun exemplu în acest sens este reprezentat de faptul că România exercită cu succes rolul de Preşedinţie din umbră la Consiliul Uniunii Europene, pe durata mandatului Austriei. Acest exerciţiu implică realizarea aceluiaşi set de activităţi precum cele care rezultă din deţinerea efectivă a Preşedinţiei", a declarat Victor Negrescu, potrivit unui comunicat transmis de Ministerul Afacerilor Externe. Pe dimensiunea politică, până în prezent a fost realizat Programul de lucru al Preşedinţiei României la Consiliului Uniunii Europene, ce cuprinde narativul şi tematicile de interes, a fost aprobat în unanimitate în cadrul Parlamentului documentul strategic privind tematicile de interes ale Preşedinţiei României la Consiliul UE şi acestea au fost susţinute de către prim-ministru în plenul Parlamentului. De asemenea, conform MAE, România a fost prima ţară care a formulat contribuţia sa privind programul comun la nivel de Trio, pe care ţara noastră îl împarte cu Finlanda şi Croaţia. România, prin ministrul delegat pentru Afaceri Europene, a iniţiat prima reuniune a Trio-lui de Preşedinţii încă din septembrie 2017, fiind de asemenea gazda celei de-a doua reuniuni, la Bucureşti, în ianuarie 2018. Pe dimensiunea resurselor umane, au fost identificaţi şi nominalizaţi 279 de preşedinţi şi vicepreşedinţi de grupuri de lucru, 342 de coordonatori şi 800 de experţi de dosar. Numărul de experţi şi coordonatori de dosar va evolua în funcţie de discuţiile purtate pe perioada Preşedinţiei Austriei la Consiliul UE. În vederea corelării numerice a echipelor din cadrul ministerelor şi a instituţiilor subordonate cu anvergura atribuţiilor ce le revin în cadrul acestui mandat, au fost create 132 de posturi suplimentare în cadrul Reprezentanţei Permanente a României pe lângă Uniunea Europeană şi au fost create 282 de posturi temporare suplimentare, la nivelul ministerelor. MAE menţionează că s-a acordat o atenţie sporită elaborării planului de formare a personalului din administraţia publică centrală, la Bucureşti şi în Reprezentanţa Permanentă. Astfel, cei 1.700 de funcţionari care sunt implicaţi în pregătirea şi exercitarea Preşedinţiei României la Consiliul UE sunt incluşi în programele de formare profesională demarate încă din 2017 şi realizate cu sprijinul Institutului European din România, Secretariatul General al Consiliului, Parlamentului European, dar şi al experţilor care au lucrat pentru Estonia şi Bulgaria, ţările care au deţinut anterior Preşedinţia Consiliului UE. Totodată, s-a urmărit responsabilizarea, în echipele care gestionează procesul de pregătire şi exercitare a Preşedinţiei României la Consiliul UE, a experţilor din MAE care au fost implicaţi în organizarea Summitului Francofoniei şi a Summitului NATO. De asemenea, este utilizată expertiza şi experienţa profesioniştilor detaşaţi din cadrul instituţiilor europene. Tot în ceea ce priveşte dimensiunea resurselor umane, a fost lansat programul-pilot "Voluntari ai Preşedinţiei României la Consiliul Uniunii Europene". La nivelul specialiştilor guvernamentali în domeniul protocolului şi al comunicării au fost create mecanismele de lucru în perspectiva exercitării Preşedinţiei Consiliului UE, iar la nivelul MAE au fost organizate trei concursuri - de admitere şi pentru funcţii de execuţie specifice. Pe dimensiunea organizatorică, a fost elaborat calendarul Preşedinţiei României la Consiliul UE, care a fost circulat statelor membre şi instituţiilor europene, a fost realizat planul organizatoric pentru evenimentele ce vor fi găzduite de Palatul Parlamentului şi a fost realizat planul organizatoric pentru Summitul de la Sibiu de pe 9 mai 2019. Directorului ARTEXIM, Mihai Constantinescu, a fost desemnat în calitate de coordonator general al agendei culturale a Preşedinţiei României la Consiliul UE.   Foto: (c) RADU TUTA / AGERPRES FOTO La nivelul MAE - Unitatea pentru Pregătirea Preşedinţiei României la Consiliul Uniunii Europene au fost demarate şi finalizate cu succes etapele de achiziţie publică pentru serviciile de cazare necesare Summitului de la Sibiu şi a reuniunilor ministeriale informale de la Bucureşti. De asemenea, au fost asigurate serviciile de interpretariat, prin Direcţia Generală Interpretare a Comisiei Europene şi au fost identificate locaţiile de desfăşurare a celor aproximativ 300 de reuniuni care vor avea loc în toată ţara pe durata celor şase luni de mandat. În ceea ce priveşte dimensiunea de comunicare şi promovare, a fost adoptat logo-ului Preşedinţiei României la Consiliul UE, selectat în noiembrie 2017 printr-un concurs derulat în baza unui parteneriat între Ministerul Educaţiei Naţionale şi Ministerul Afacerilor Externe, prin ministrul delegat pentru Afaceri Europene. Conceptul câştigător îi aparţine lui Ioan Nicolae Dobrinescu (15 ani), elev în clasa a IX-a la Colegiul Naţional "I.L.Caragiale" din Bucureşti. Totodată, a fost adoptat motto-ul Preşedinţiei României la Consiliul UE, "Coeziunea, o valoare comună europeană", rezultatul unor consultări instituţionale, finalizate în mai 2018, privind propunerile făcute de reprezentanţi de prestigiu ai mediului academic, ştiinţific şi publicistic. Nu în ultimul rând, în septembrie 2017 a demarat, prin intermediul ministrului delegat pentru Afaceri Europene, ciclul de conferinţe şi dezbateri publice "Dialoguri Europene" şi a fost lansat, în iulie anul acesta, un nou format de discuţii cu cetăţenii: #VorbimDespreEuropa. Pe dimensiunea civică, a fost lansat, pe 12 octombrie 2017, Forumul de consultare publică, comunicare şi dezbateri în vederea pregătirii şi exercitării Preşedinţiei României la Consiliul UE - "EU-RO 2019", în cadrul căruia au fost supuse dezbaterii cu cei peste 500 de parteneri sociali înscrişi temele prioritare sectoriale identificate. Pe 9 mai anul acesta, a fost lansată seria de "Consultări cetăţeneşti pentru viitorul Uniunii Europene" - un ciclu de evenimente are ca scop dezbaterea liniilor prioritare viitoare ale proiectului comunitar şi se înscrie în cadrul generat de iniţiativa lansată la nivel european şi asumată la nivelul statelor membre. Consultările cetăţeneşti constituie cadrul democratic pentru a dezbate cele mai importante teme la nivel european, atât cele care privesc direct România şi pe cetăţenii săi, cât şi cele relevante pentru viitorul Uniunii Europene, relevă MAE. În acelaşi context, a fost lansată procedura operaţională privind cooperarea cu parteneri asociativi în promovarea unor subiecte de interes pe perioada Preşedinţiei României la Consiliul UE, prin acordarea Patronajului Preşedinţiei României la Consiliul UE, respectiv a statutului de eveniment Partener al Preşedinţiei României la Consiliul UE. De asemenea, a fost lansat ghidul privind selectarea şi contractarea sponsorizărilor pentru pregătirea şi exercitarea Preşedinţiei României a Consiliului UE de către structura care se ocupă în mod tradiţional de aceste aspecte, pentru a veni în sprijinul celor care doresc să susţină mandatul pe care România îl va deţine în perioada 1 ianuarie - 30 iunie 2019, având în vedere exemplele Preşedinţiilor anterioare care au recurs la acest tip de mecanism. Pe dimensiunea tehnică, au fost finalizate demersurile privind implementarea de soluţii IT care vor permite eficientizarea activităţii, inclusiv a unui sistem direct de comunicare online şi a fost finalizat sistemul de acreditare. Site-ul de prezentare a pregătirilor pentru Presedinţia României la Consiliul UE, www.romania2019.eu, a fost lansat în februarie anul acesta, portalul fiind dezvoltat utilizând exclusiv competenţele existente în sistemul public şi a fost demarat procesul de realizare a site-ului de exercitare al Preşedinţiei României la Consiliul Uniunii Europene.

          Ediţia a VII-a a Festivalului de film Horror şi Fantastic "Lună Plină"      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
În intervalul 9-12 august 2018, este programată cea de-a şaptea ediţie a Festivalului de Film Horror şi Fantastic "Lună Plină" de la Biertan, judeţul Sibiu, potrivit portalului http://lunaplinafestival.ro. Un total de 10 lungmetraje şi 19 scurtmetraje concurează pentru trofeul "Lună Plină 7". Cele zece lungmetraje sunt următoarele: "Dincolo de pădure" (Irlanda, 2018), debutul în lung-metraj al regizorului Sean Breathnach; "Povestea din Sant Marti" (Spania, 2017), lungmetrajul de debut al regizorului David C. Ruiz; "Călătorii din Los Olvidados / Cei abandonaţi" (Argentina, 2017), fraţii Luciano şi Nicolas Onetti semnând regia, scenariul, muzica şi montajul filmului; "Kyrsyä - Ţinutul Misterios" (Finlanda, 2017), o combinaţie de thriller, mister şi groază, filmul de debut al regizorului actor Roope Olenius; "Trauma" (Chile, 2017), regizat de Lucio Rojas; "Memento Mori" (Belgia, 2018) regizat de Michaël Vermaercke; "Clementina" (Argentina, 2017), regizat de Jimena Monteoliva; "În cadru" (Spania, 2017), regizat de Marc Martinez Jordan; "Bestie cordială" (Brazilia, 2017), regizat de Gabriela Amaral şi "Pădurea neagră" (Brazilia, 2018), regizat de Rodrigo Aragao. Nu vor lipsi de la "Lună Plină" nici petrecerile (pregătite de DJ Indjstione şi Andrei Puiu), atelierele fantastice, plimbările cu bicicleta sau târgul de produse tradiţionale şi &#39;&#39;hand-made&#39;&#39;. Precedenta ediţie a festivalului s-a desfăşurat între 10 şi 13 august 2017, în aceeaşi comună sibiană, Biertan. Câştigătoarele trofeelor celei de-a şasea ediţii au fost lungmetrajul "Constrângere/ Compulsion", regizat de Gonzalez Angel, un inconfortabil debut spaniol despre o tânără care realizează că iubitul ei nu este deloc ceea ce pare, precum şi scurtmetrajul "Holy F__k", regizat de Chris Chalklen, una dintre cele mai atipice şi comice exorcizări văzute pe marele ecran. Selecţia filmelor a fost semnată de criticul de film Cătălin Mesaru, care a ales dintr-un total de 1.500 de filme înscrise un total de 10 lungmetraje şi 19 scurtmetraje. În 2016, filmul danez "Shelley", în regia lui Ali Abbasi, cu actriţa Cosmina Stratan în distribuţie, a câştigat Trofeul "Lună Plină". În competiţia de scurtmetraje, Premiul Publicului i-a revenit filmului ceh "Leshy", de Pavel Soukup, un exerciţiu de stil şi teroare a la Guillermo del Toro, inspirat de o legendă din folclorul slav. Primul eveniment din România axat în exclusivitate pe cinema-ul horror şi fantastic, Festivalul de Film Horror şi Fantastic "Lună Plină" a fost iniţiat în 2012 şi are loc anual la Biertan, judeţul Sibiu. Evenimentul este un proiect organizat de Asociaţia pentru Promovarea Filmului Românesc, conform http://www.romfilmpromotion.ro. Biertan este una dintre primele aşezări germane din Transilvania (1283), aflată la 25 km distanţă de Sighişoara şi de Mediaş. Un spaţiu ideal pentru vizionări în aer liber, Biertanul are o piaţă centrală &#39;&#39;vegheată&#39;&#39; de o biserică fortificată, o capodoperă arhitecturală protejată de UNESCO. AGERPRES/(Documentare - Horia Plugaru, editor: Liviu Tatu, editor online: Adrian Dădârlat)

5G Technology Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast 2016 - 2024

Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/08/2018 -- Fifth-generation wireless, popularly known by its acronym 5G, is the latest in cellular technology. It aims to enhance speed and responsiveness to a great degree. While it may take until 2020 to be rolled out commercially and become mainstream, nations across the world – both developing and developed – are pulling out all stops to prepare the underpinning technology. This has provided a major boost to the market for 5G technology, which include HSPA (high speed package access), Wi-Fi, GSM (global system for mobile), RAT (radio access technologies), and WiMAX (worldwide interoperability for microwave access).

Below, we round up a few factors driving the market for 5G technology and also the recent developments in it:

The world is witnessing a pressing demand for speedy and seamless data connectivity both in developed and developing nations. This is because of the copious number of companies – SMEs and big multinationals – operating out of them. In addition, spike in usage of smart connected devices such as mobile and swift uptake of rich media services such as video and gaming, alongside emergence of more powerful sensors and semiconductors are also having a major positive impact on the 5G technology market.

Obtain Report Details @ https://www.transparencymarketresearch.com/5g-technology-market.html

Sensing a massive potential in the market, numerous companies are pouring money into it and are also partnering with one another. In fact, if things go as per plan, it won't be long before 5G-equipped computers would be more than a stuff of tradeshow demos. Technology giant Intel has very recently announced that it would partner with Sprint to actually sell 5G PCs from next year onwards. However, if they have a definitive backup plan or if it is just propaganda, only time will say. Meanwhile, carriers like AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon are already working on 5G networks. All such proactive efforts by players to launch 5G network, is providing a solid boost to the 5G technology market.

Race for 5G network, which is 10 to 100 times faster than the current 4G network and also consumes less power, is heating up among countries too as they feel it would enable them to enhance trade and commerce and also improve their citizens' life. China and other Asian nations are mainly dominating the race. Hence they are at the forefront of driving demand for 5G technology market. Chinese telecom companies Huawei and ZTE are already supplying software and equipment for building of the 5G mobile network in Australia.

Apart from Asia Pacific, the U.S. in North America is another key market for 5G technology. This is mainly on account of the state-of-the-art research centers of prominent tech players in the region. In fact, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in the U.S. has already begun assessing the allocation of frequencies to 5G networks. The U.S., which still does not have the fastest broadband speeds in the world and lags other developed nations of the likes of Japan, Finland, and South Korea is keen on outsmarting China in launching the futuristic 5G network.

          Huelga en la base de Finnair en El Prat, su principal de España      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

La plantilla de tripulantes de cabina de pasajeros (TCP) de la aerolínea de bandera finlandesa Finnair en el Aeropuerto de Barcelona-El Prat irá a la huelga los dos últimos fines de semana de agosto y el primero de septiembre, en concreto, los días 18, 19, 25 y 26 de agosto, y 1 y 2 de septiembre, si no se llega a un acuerdo este viernes en la reunión de mediación, convocada por el Departament de Treball de Cataluña.


Los trabajadores de la aerolínea finlandesa reclaman la categoría profesional de tripulantes de cabina de pasajeros, debido a que, en la actualidad, aparecen en nómina como “auxiliares administrativos”, además de una mejora de las condiciones salariales.

USO explica que los 50 trabajadores de la compañía en Barcelona, muchos de ellos temporales, "llevan sufriendo desde hace cinco años y medio la precariedad a la que nos somete la compañía al tenernos contratados a través de una empresa temporal, que ni siquiera nos reconoce la categoría de tripulante de cabina”, denuncia Yasmina Maté, delegada de USO Cataluña en Finnair-Barcelona, sindicato que aglutina toda la representación en la base.

Los trabajadores de Finnair están contratados por la empresa Atlas, dependiente de Adecco Outsourcing, la cual les aplica un convenio de empresa que no reconoce las particularidades del sector aéreo.

“No solo es un problema de sueldo, sino de cumplimiento de la normativa de seguridad. Como auxiliares administrativos, no se nos reconocen los riesgos de la profesión ni los protocolos de prevención acordes al puesto que realmente desempeñamos", afirma Yasmina Maté.

Agrega que "hay un supuesto especialmente despiadado en el caso de las mujeres: nada más que se conoce un embarazo, en aviación te dan la baja inmediata, desde el día 1, ya que el trabajo en vuelo es especialmente peligroso para las gestantes. Aquí, sin embargo, al ser consideradas auxiliares administrativas, resulta muy difícil que los facultativos den la baja por esta causa”, explica la delegada de USOC.

En cuanto a la remuneración, lamenta que “a pesar de que muchos de nosotros llevamos 20 y 30 años de experiencia en compañías aéreas regulares, nuestro sueldo como tripulante de cabina se sitúa en torno a los 1.200 euros al mes, 1.500 si eres sobrecargo. Salarios por debajo incluso de las peores compañías de bajo coste”.

Finnair opera la ruta Barcelona-Helsinki con cinco frecuencias semanales (10 vuelos semanales). El número de pasajeros afectado por vuelo es de unos 200.

          Proposal: Finance ministry's 2019 budget prioritises jobseeker services and education      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The Ministry of Finance officially submitted its budget proposal for next year on Thursday. The proposal includes 17.4 billion euros worth of appropriations, 223 million more than in this year's budget.

The ministry says in its press release that "strict spending discipline has been adhered to", saying that expeditures would be lowered by way of consolidation, the end of several key projects and a decline in unemployment benefit spending.

On the other hand, it says that an increase in pension costs, price increases and additional investments have pushed numbers up. In its current state, the proposal is 1.7 billion euros in deficit, the same amount of debt registered in last year's budget.

Employment office gets boost

In terms of improving the country's employment situation, the budget says that 10 million euros will be allocated for extending the right to earnings-related unemployment benefits to family members of entrepreneurs, with another 20 million devoted to "improving incentives to work". An increase of 10.3 million euros will be directed towards Finland's network of TE employment offices to develop jobseeker services.

In education, the ministry proposes a 10 million euro appropriation for lowering day care class sizes and hiring additional day care staff in what it calls "challenging areas" – or areas with lower income or education levels or higher incidences of immigrant families. The ministry says this money will help alleviate inequality.

It also proposes a supplementary learning material benefit to be added to study aid for low-income families with children in upper secondary and vocational education. This new funding would sponsor up to 46 euros a month worth of study-related costs. A pilot project to continue the renewal of Finland's system of vocational universities is also proposed.

No funding for more police

The proposal outlines keeping Finland's police force at current levels (about 7,200 officers, excluding the Finnish Security Intelligence Service). A total of 18 million euros would be devoted to the force's maintenance.

To meet the needs of increasing external border traffic at the Helsinki Airport, the ministry proposes an increase of 1.85 million euros for airport Border Guard operations. Another 10 million extra has also been proposed for the implementation of expanded civilian intelligence, if the Parliament approves legislation in this area in the coming year.

The proposal makes no mention of changes to Finland's agricultural policies or possible added funding for Baltic Sea protection. Finance Minister Petteri Orpo said on Wednesday that decisions on these matters will be discussed in the government budget session, scheduled for August 28 and 29.

The proposal will now circle Finland's other ministries for comment, with negotiations on August 15 and 16. The government hopes to have a final version of the draft proposal for the coming year ready by September 17.

          Finnish municipalities spend thousands on junking abandoned vehicles      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Some vehicle owners in Finland simply abandon their cars when they reach the end of their usefulness, causing thousands of euros of expense for Finland's cities. Normally, unclaimed vehicles are impouded, but few are ever retrieved.

"Around 100 abandoned vehicles are picked up from [Helsinki] streets each year and brought straight to the junkyard for recycling," says Pekka Holopainen, director of the city's vehicle towing services.

He says that most of the approximately 2,000 vehicles that are picked up and brought to the Tattarisuo storage lot in eastern Helsinki every year are brought there because they were improperly parked.

Holopainen says that most of the abandoned vehicles have been destroyed in accidents or fallen into such despair that the owners can't use any of the parts.

The towing chief says that the number of cars that are brought to the Tattarisuo yard reflects Finland's economic situation. In 1989, when the economy was doing well, 2,850 cars were brought to the area, but in 1993, after a crippling recession hit the country, the number dropped to 264.

He says a abandoned vehicle's location is a deciding factor when it comes to how quickly it is dealt with.

"If a damaged car presents a safety risk to children, for example, it can be moved very quickly," he says.

Elusive owners should be responsible for the costs

In the southern city of Tampere, road engineer Kari Kannisto says the city pays 70,000 euros a year to dispose of abandoned cars. He says only ten percent of the vehicles that are towed to lots are ever claimed by their owners.

In the northwestern coastal city Oulu, some 450 vehicle removal requests are issued each year. This number includes reports of cars parked in prohibited areas as well. Most of the abandoned vehicles are no longer fit for the road.

Oulu's maintenance head Kai Mäenpää says car owners are legally responsible for disposing their vehicles, and depending on the amount of metal in the vehicle, the owners can expect to receive between 70 and 100 euros for bringing them to the junkyard. Owners who inappropriately abandon their vehicles usually end up paying 200 euros in towing charges.

"We move about 80 junker cars each year, resulting in a cost to the city of about 80,000 euros annually. This total includes cars that have been parked illegally that we have to move," he says.

The problem is that sometimes it can be hard to track down the owner. License plates can be changed, or even stolen from a different car. Vehicle identification numbers on the car's frame can also sometimes be used to track down the owner.

As a rule, few owners ever reclaim cars they have abandoned.

          Thursday's papers: School starts, budget reveal, spying on refugees, and mug pandemonium      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The Joensuu-based newspaper Karjalainen starts out Thursday's paper review with a reminder that most schools in Finland are starting their next academic year today, August 9. Children will be returning to their desks in Finnish-speaking schools in Helsinki and Vantaa and all schools in Espoo, Tampere, Oulu, Jyväskylä, Lappeenranta, Seinäjoki, Kajaani and Joensuu, for example. Several campaigns are underway to make motorists more mindful of the children, many of whom walk or bike to school.

Ministry unveils budget proposal

The Oulu-based Kaleva paper that says that the Finance Ministry will release its budget proposal for the coming year this morning at 10 am.

Finance Minister Petteri Orpo held a press conference yesterday where he revealed a bit of the content. The paper says there were no big surprises. Despite recent robust growth in the economy, the 2019 budget proposal still contains a 1.7-billion-euro deficit, pushing Finland's public debt to 109 billion euros. Even so, Orpo is confident that the ratio of public debt to GDP will fall to under 60 percent soon.

As far as taxes go, the minister says earnings-related income tax breaks are in the cards, along with increases in tobacco and certain energy taxes. He only mentioned two areas in which funding will be increased: Border Guard at the airport will get a boost to deal with the influx of external border traffic, and the influenza vaccine programme will be developed and expanded to include more children.

Tourists may not be what they seem

Major newspaper Helsingin Sanomat features a story on a new phenomenon in Finland: Spies who track the activities of Finland's refugees.

In what the paper calls a historic ruling in terms of Finland's association with the case, a Tibetan man was convicted in June in Stockholm for gathering information on Tibetan people living in the Nordic countries for the Chinese authorities. The prosecutor said the man visited Finland many times between 2013 and 2015, but the specifics of his activities here have been kept confidential.

Sweden has earlier tried similar cases involving spying on Chinese, Iranian and Rwandan refugees. Germany convicted a Chinese man for undercover work in which he recorded the addresses, family ties and activities of Uyghur refugees there in 2011. The Uyghur are an Asian ethnic minority of Turkish descent.

Spying on refugees is not a crime in Finland, but the Finnish Security Intelligence Service (Supo) and several other civil groups are pushing for such legislation to be passed. In 1995, Supo deported a diplomat accused of spying on refugees.

"We receive word about cases like this regularly in Finland, too. Unfortunately, it looks like it is something that is here to stay," Supo's director Antti Pelttari tells HS.

HS approached members of the Finnish Falun Gong and Uyghur communities, both of which are widely persecuted in China, to ask if they have ever felt that someone is keeping track of their movements in Finland. No one had any conclusive evidence to prove that they were being spied on, but many had suspicions and fears.

For example, Finland's Uyghur community held a demonstration in Helsinki's Senate Square on July 7. About 50 protesters turned out to call attention to Uyghur oppression in China, but most covered their faces for fear that relatives back in their home city of Xinjiang would be punished for their activism.

An Asian man appeared at the protest and took many pictures and apparently some video. When a HS reporter approached him, he said in English that he was a Japanese tourist. He turned to take a photo of the Helsinki Cathedral, but then continued his extensive documentation of the protest.

New Moomin mug sold out in an instant

And the tabloid Ilta-Sanomat reports on a truly Finnish phenomenon: Madness for the latest special edition Moomin mug.

Finnish dinnerware company Arabia hit on a gold mine years ago when it started releasing ceramic mugs with illustrations from the famous series of Finnish children's books by Tove Jansson. Many Finns have acquired a complete collection of more than 60 mugs, with three to five different designs put on the market annually.

A new special edition 'Moomin's Day' mug was released on August 9 starting at midnight, and already by 9 am, it was out of stock in online stores. Customers complained about the Arabia website crashing for over an hour after the mug went on sale, making the process even more difficult. IS says prices for the mug on online auction sites were running as high as 2,250 euros this morning.

The growth in the number of nights spent by foreign tourists at Finnish accommodation establishments halted in May and decreased further in June 2018. Almost 590,000 nights spent were recorded for foreign visitors, which was 4.8 per cent lower than twelve months earlier. In contrast, the number of nights spent by resident tourists increased by 4.5 per cent and they overnighted almost 1.6 million times at accommodation establishments. In all, close on 2.2 million overnight stays were recorded at Finnish accommodation establishments, which was 1.8 per cent more than in June 2017. These figures are preliminary data from Statistics Finlands statistics on accommodation establishments and they have been collected from accommodation establishments with at least 20 beds or caravan pitches with electricity connection.

Wildfire smoke blanketing California frightening to watch, even from space

Worldwide

DF-Xinhua Report

Dozens of wildfires are currently burning across California. The smoke blanketing the Golden State is frightening to watch, even from space.

   Astronauts aboard the International Space Station (ISS) have taken dramatic new photos of the wildfires raging across California from 400 kilometers above Earth.

   "Plumes of billowing smoke from the #CaliforniaWildfires stretch eastwards [toward] the Rocky Mountains," astronaut Ricky Arnold, a crewmember on the ISS' current Expedition 56, posted some fire photos via Twitter on Aug. 6.

   More than 14,000 firefighters are battling a dozen major wildfires across California.

   The biggest wildfire in western U.S. California State, dubbed the Mendocino Complex fire, became the largest wildfire in state records Monday.

   As of Monday evening, the fire had charred 283,800 acres (1,148 square km) in northern California, with only 30 percent contained. It had destroyed 75 residences and was threatening more than 11,300 structures.

   The Carr Fire, which is raging in Shasta County, has claimed seven lives to date.

   "California burning. These fires are frightening to watch, even from space," European Space Agency (ESA) astronaut Alexander Gerst tweeted. The geophysicist and volcanologist has posted images of several big fires and their even larger smoke plumes.

   Astronauts aren't the only eyes tracking the wild fires from orbit. Wildfires are also captured by satellites.

   Images of the fires from space taken by the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)'s Earth-observing Aqua satellite show that smoke blanketing much of the Golden State and spreading as far east as Salt Lake City.

   The Aqua satellite launched in May 2002, tasked primarily with studying Earth's water cycle. But the spacecraft can make a variety of other observations as well - helping researchers and first responders keep tabs on wildfires, volcanic eruptions and other natural disasters, for example.

   Aqua's sibling satellite, Terra, has also been monitoring the California wildfires lately.

   A variety of satellites are doing precision monitoring work. Many satellite photos show that the fires are making air quality unbreathable.

   "Smoke is impacting much of California and surrounding areas," the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)'s National Weather Service posted many high resolution images captured by satellites.

Sprint star Bolt will have to 'impress' new Aussie soccer coach

DF-Xinhua Report

Sprint star Usain Bolt will have to "impress the coach" to be offered a playing contract with Australia's Central Coast Mariners Football Club, its chief executive officer Shaun Mielekamp said on Wednesday.

   Following the club's announcement that the retired Jamaican sprinter and record-breaking Olympic gold medalist is starting his soccer training with it for "an indefinite training period", Mielekamp said in a press conference that Bolt's training program "will be structured to see if he can reach a level of playing that earns him a professional contract".

   "This may take three weeks, three months, six months. Or it may take longer. Who knows. Only time will tell. But it's exciting to see what this will do for our region," said Mielekamp.

   "There's a lot of hard work ahead and we're committed to building a team that will win matches and instil belief in our community. Hopefully Usain can help us on this mission," he said.

   Bolt, 31, is expected to move to the club's base in New South Wales state's Central Coast area. His playing position will be "probably a question for the coach in future weeks as he gets to the ground and puts the boots on. Everyone knows he's fast, everyone knows he's big so there's some obvious positions that you would think of. l will leave that to the football department to guide us on that one," said Mielekamp.

   "One thing that's really exciting for us and we are very aware of is what may the 'Bolt effect' look like for us in the future. If there are more players around the world that know our brand, know our club and know our region then that can only be a positive".

          Brexit hits London population growth: report      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Brexit hits London population growth: report

DF-Xinhua Report

London's population has been rising steadily since the mid-1980s but evidence has emerged that Brexit and the high cost of buying and renting homes is deterring new people from coming to live in the city.

   The London Intelligence Report published on Wednesday afternoon by the think-tank the Center for London showed that in the year to mid-2017 London's population experienced the slowest rate of growth in over a decade.

   The growth rate in the city's population, which stands at 8.1 million people, nearly halved in the first full year since the Brexit referendum in June 2016 to 0.6 percent per year, down from the 2015-16 figure of 1.1 percent

   This is the slowest rate of growth in over a decade, and means the 2017 population was 79,000 (0.9 percent) lower than expected within 2016-based projections.

   Tom Colthorpe, researcher on the report told Xinhua: "There are many fewer people coming to London from other countries."

   "There is a bit of a nosedive. There is a pretty significant drop in international immigration which some might point to Brexit."

   The contribution of net international migration has declined considerably year-on-year to a net gain of just under 83,000 individuals.

   Though international migration remains the largest contributor to population growth, it now only contributes 5,000 more individuals than those added through natural change (births and deaths).

   Registrations for national insurance numbers (known as NI, a form of health tax necessary for most types of work) continued to fall, a trend seen since the Brexit vote.

   The number of EU nationals registering for NI fell by a quarter over the year, and the most recent quarter available (Q1 this year) saw the total 16 percent smaller compared to a year previously, and only just over half the Q3 2014 peak level.

   At the same time, non-EU registrations grew by 9 percent, reversing the trend seen in the previous four consecutive quarters of falls.

   "It is obvious with EU citizens, that some of that (decline) is down to Brexit and that is down to the uncertain status of EU nationals in the UK," Colthorpe said.

   Figures in 2014 for EU nationals getting NI numbers spiked, when Romanian and Bulgarian nationals were allowed to apply for the first time, as part of the EU accession agreement for those countries in 2007.

   Colthorpe said: "When you see that in 2014 after the accession of Romania, Bulgaria, a lot of that causes a big spike of 80,000 in a quarter. Some of the decline has been because that pent-up demand has tailed off, but the fall has been accelerated by the Brexit factor."

   British nationals were also leaving the city, in higher numbers than previously.

   "Looking over a longer period, after the financial crisis people flocked to London, but now that trend is reversing," he said.

Switzerland bans Audi A6, A7 cars

DF-Xinhua Report

The Swiss Federal Roads Office announced Wednesday that the new Audi A6 and A7 3.0-litre diesel cars have been refused authorization to drive in Switzerland due to tampering with their anti-pollution control systems.

   The vehicles are from Audi's C7 generation, which comply with the Euro 6 standard.

   The Federal Roads Office said in a statement posted on its website that the cars have been equipped with illicit devices that tamper with the purification of exhaust fumes.

   The emissions scandal involving German car makers first came to light in 2015 when the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency accused Volkswagen of equipping 11 million of its diesel vehicles with software that falsifies the results of anti-pollution tests, the Swiss News Agency, SDA-ATS reported.

   These allowed the cars to conceal emissions of up to 40 times authorized levels.

   The Audi vehicles named by the roads' office will only be registered in Switzerland as new vehicles once they comply with pollution requirements, the office said.

   The ban only concerns Audi vehicles imported starting next week.

   "Vehicles already registered in Switzerland are not affected by the registration ban and may, therefore, continue to be driven or to be put on sale on the second-hand market," said the statement.

   The 2018 and 2019 models of the Audi A6 and A7 (C8 generation) are not affected.

Samsung to invest 160b USD, hire 40,000 for next 3 years

DF-Xinhua Report

Samsung Group, South Korea's biggest family-controlled conglomerate, said Wednesday that it will invest 180 trillion won (160 billion U.S. dollars) and hire 40,000 more employees for the next three years.

   Samsung made the announcement to help revitalize the South Korean economy and foster new growth engines.

   The government under South Korean President Moon Jae-in placed its top priority on job creation, especially among youths, unveiling supplementary budget to create decent jobs.

   However, it had yet to take effect as the labor market was in the doldrums on soft corporate investment and weak private consumption.

   Samsung expected to create 40,000 new jobs, including generating up to 20,000 additional new jobs on top of the previous hiring plans, over the next three years. It reflected Samsung's commitment to support youth employment, Samsung said in a statement.

   Along with the direct employment of Samsung, its investment in South Korea was forecast to help induce around 700,000 jobs in related industries and businesses, the statement noted.

   Among the total of 180 trillion won (160 billion U.S. dollars) in investment, 130 trillion won (116 billion U.S. dollars) will be spent in South Korea

   Samsung said that it will invest 25 trillion won (22 billion U.S. dollars) in innovative business areas such as artificial intelligence (AI), 5G, automotive electronics components and biopharmaceuticals over the next three years.

   Innovations, powered by AI technology, was forecast to drive the industry's transformation. The next-generation 5G telecommunications technology was expected to create opportunities in autonomous driving, the Internet of Things (IoT) and robotics, Samsung said.

   Samsung planned to significantly expand its research capability for AI technology, raising the number of advanced AI researchers to 1,000 across its global AI centers. It will also aggressively invest in 5G chipsets and related devices and equipment.

   Samsung aimed to become a leader in electronics components for future cars such as system-on-chips for driverless driving, making use of its leadership in semiconductors, telecommunications and display technologies.

   Separately, Samsung said it will increase support for basic sciences to identify new growth opportunities, widening its program to include areas of future technologies such as AI, 5G, IoT and biopharmaceuticals.

   Additional investment will be made in semiconductors and display panels, Samsung said.

   For semiconductors, Samsung planned to expand investment in its manufacturing factories to maintain technology leadership and meet new demand from applications in AI, 5G, data centers and automotive electronics.

   The spending will include investments in non-memory chips and new advanced manufacturing equipment as well as memory products.

   For display panels, investment will be increased to develop high-value, differentiated products amid stiff competition in the industry.

   In conjunction with the South Korean government, Samsung will set up and operate software education centers to nurture software talent and help create new job opportunities.

   The centers will train 10,000 students and job candidates across the nation, offering employment consulting services for the next five years.

   It will also increase the scale of its so-called "Smart Factory" program, an initiative that provides automation solutions and intelligent upgrades for manufacturing facilities of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

U.S. to impose new sanctions on Russia

Worldwide

DF-Xinhua Report

 

The U.S. State Department said on Wednesday that the country will impose new sanctions on Russia over the alleged poison attack of an ex-Russian spy and his daughter.

   According to a statement issued by State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert, Washington on Monday determined that the Russian government had "used chemical or biological weapons in violation of international law or has used lethal chemical or biological weapons against its own nationals," referring to British citizen Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia Skripal.

   Nauert also accused Moscow of using a "Novichok" nerve agent in an attempt to assassinate them.

   The U.S. action was made under the Chemical and Biological Weapons Control and Warfare Elimination Act of 1991 (CBW Act), she said.

   "Following a 15-day Congressional notification period, these sanctions will take effect upon publication of a notice in the Federal Register, expected on or around August 22, 2018," she added.

   Former Russian double agent Sergei Skripal, aged 66, and his daughter Yulia were found unconscious on a bench outside a shopping center in Britain's southwestern city of Salisbury on March 4.

   Britain claims the pair was exposed to a nerve agent and holds Russia responsible, while the Russian government has denied any involvement in it.

Stone Age settlement found in Lake Kuolimojärvi

DF Report

A prehistoric settlement found submerged in the Lake Kuolimojärvi provides a clearer picture of the human occupation in South Karelia during the Mesolithic and Early Neolithic Stone Age (about 10,000 to 6,000 years ago) and opens up a new research path in Finnish archaeology, says a University of Helsinki study report.

During the early Stone Age, water levels in the small lakes in southern Finland which today are known as Lake Kuolimojärvi and Lake Saimaa were several metres below the present levels, said an official press release.

After that period, the water levels started rising as a result of uneven land uplift and tilting of lakes and rivers. The rise in water levels ended with the outburst of the River Vuoksi through the Salpausselkä Ridge about 6,000 years ago, when water masses carved a new south-eastern outflow channel towards the Lake Ladoga.

With the rise in water levels, areas that were dry land in the early Stone Age were buried in the bottom of the lake and its littoral deposits.

The aim of the three-year study carried out by the University of Helsinki has been to find traces of early Stone Age settlements under water and from wetlands at the lakes Kuolimojärvi and Saimaa.

“This means that there is a huge gap in our archaeological knowledge of this particular area because we have not yet found the earliest Stone Age sites,” explained Satu Koivisto, a postdoctoral researcher who heads the project.

The oldest sites were settled after the breakthrough of the River Vuoksi (6,000 years ago and onwards). However, there has definitely been human habitation in this area for thousands of years before that, as is shown by the traces of more than 10,000 years old settlements discovered at Kuurmanpohja in Joutseno further to the south.

In June 2018, archaeologists carried out underwater excavations and equipment testing at the Kammarlahti Bay in Savitaipale in cooperation with Nordic Maritime Group (NMG) and the underwater unit of Finnish Heritage Agency. Archaeologists from Denmark and Sweden also took part in the work.

Mistakenly deported Afghan asylum seeker to return to Germany

DF-Xinhua Report

An asylum seeker from Afghanistan who was erroneously deported to his country of origin will soon be brought back to Germany, a spokesperson for the interior ministry announced on Wednesday.

   Nasibullah S. was forcibly flown to Kabul along with 68 other deportees in early July, despite the fact that a final decision on his asylum application by a regional administrative court was still pending. Having initially failed to obtain asylum in Germany during a regular application procedure, the 20-year-old launched a legal appeal against the negative verdict which is scheduled to be heard in court in September.

   A statement released by interior minister Horst Seehofer afterwards read: "There has obviously been an administrative error at the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees," which reports to the interior ministry.

   The case of Nasibullah S. is only one of several recent incidents in which German authorities were found to have acted in breach of the law by deporting individuals pre-maturely.

   The episode is a source of embarrassment for Seehofer who had publicly boasted about the completion of the single largest deportation flight in German history on his own birthday. The minister said at time that he was delighted to be able to announce the removal from the country of 69 failed asylum seekers on the same day as he turned 69 himself.

   Speaking to press on Wednesday, the spokesperson for the interior ministry noted that Nasibullah S.'s return had already been ordered on July 18. Having experienced delays along his journey via Pakistan, the Afghan national is now expected to arrive back in Germany on Sunday. There is currently no evidence of the asylum seeker having committed any wrongdoing or criminal misdemeanours after he first entered the country in the course of the 2015 European refugee crisis.

Army helicopters ferry water for cows in sizzling Switzerland

DF-Xinhua Report

Despite sporadic overnight flash flooding in parts of Switzerland, there was little respite Tuesday as the Alpine country faces its driest summer on record, with mountain pastures shriveling and army helicopters being used to ferry water.

   Switzerland is also experiencing its lowest rainfall in nearly a century, said the private Swiss Mountain foundation.

   Since the start of weather records in 1864, there have been only three periods between April and July with less rainfall.

   An army-backed operation to transport water to livestock in summer pastures is underway in the mountainous canton of Vaud in western Switzerland, the Swiss News Agency, SDA-ATS reported Tuesday.

   Helicopters are taking water to cows grazing in the Jura Mountains and sub-Alpine pastures.

   The national meteorological office said cities are experiencing uncharacteristically daily high temperatures in the mid-30 degree Celsius range.

   The government announced on Monday temporary measures to ease the heatwave-related difficulties faced by many farmers experiencing the drying up of their herd reservoirs.

   Agriculture minister Johann Schneider Amman said the measures include easing customs tariffs on imported roughage such as hay and silo maize down to zero from 3 Swiss francs (3.02 U.S. dollars) for 100 kg.

   The drought has caused drought-affected farmers in parts of the country to dip into winter reserves of fodder or purchase it from other parts of the country, or abroad.

   Removing the tariff will compensate for a rise in import prices driven by the heatwave over much of Europe.

   The Swiss Mountain Aid foundation said Alpine farms are particularly affected by the heatwave as the soil dries up on the slopes under the scorching heat.

   Transporting water by tanker truck, or even by helicopter in the most remote areas, is costly.

   Dairy cows need as much as 100 liters a day in such high temperatures.

   Farmers cannot shoulder the burden alone, says the foundation, which has committed to covering about half of the total costs of water transportation to Alpine pastures.

   "As a result of water shortages, farms would be deprived of fodder for the winter months," said the foundation's project manager, Kurt Zgraggen.

Ex Malaysian PM slapped with money-laundering charges

Worldwide

DF-Xinhua Report

Former Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak on Wednesday was charged with three offenses related to money-laundering and anti-terrorism financing, in addition to several counts of criminal breach of trust and corruption charges that were served in early July.   

    The 65-year-old former leader appeared at the Kuala Lumpur Courts complex at around 9 a.m. local time for a pre-trial case-management hearing.

   After the prosecution team read the new charges in court, he pleaded not guilty and claimed trial.

    Malaysia's anti-corruption commission said earlier all the charges are related to a 42-million-ringgit (10.3 million U.S. dollars) deposit into Najib's personal bank account by SRC International, a former unit of state fund 1MDB. 

   At the court, the prosecution stated that the 42 million ringgit, transferred in three tranches into Najib's bank account, were obtained from illegal activities.

   Each of the three money-laundering charges carries a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison and a fine of up to five times of the ill-gotten wealth.

   The multiple charges filed against him in July were also connected to SRC International.

   The judge postponed his decision on the trial date to Friday and said he will also settle the gag order, which was issued earlier to prevent the public from commenting on the merits of the case in a biased manner.

   1MDB was set up by Najib in 2009 to spur Malaysia's economic development. But report emerged later that billions of U.S. dollars were misappropriated. Najib has been under investigation related to 1MDB since losing the general elections in May but has denied any wrongdoing.

   After the election, Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad has stepped up his efforts to probe the case. On Tuesday, a 250-million-U.S. dollar super yacht arrived at Malaysia after the Indonesian authorities impounded it on the basis that it was purchased with stolen money from 1MDB.

German national held for alleged spying on mosque

DF-Xinhua Report

A 33-year-old German citizen was arrested on suspicion of engaging in secret service in connection with a mosque in the country, the Federal Prosecutor General at the Federal Court of Justice announced on Wednesday.

   According to previous investigation, the accused, Alexander B., was in connection with a Jordanian intelligent service.

   He was said to have collected information about the DIK mosque in Hildesheim and passed it on to his clients in Jordan.

   The accused also allegedly delivered findings on several people who, in his estimation, wanted to move to Syria for "jihad" or had already emigrated there.

   The Hildesheim DIK Mosque had been run by the association "German-Speaking Islamic Circle Hildesheim eV" (DIK). The association was banned in March of 2017 by the Lower Saxony Ministry of Interior.

Trump-Putin summit yields good results on Syria: analysts

Worldwide

DF-Xinhua Report

The summit between the leaders of the United States and Russia in Finland's Helsinki last month has started to pay off in Syria on several levels, as a consensus between major players is deemed necessary to end the Syrian war, analysts said.

   At the summit which took place on July 16, Russian President Vladimir Putin and his U.S. counterpart Donald Trump agreed on the need to resolve the situation in southern Syria.

   Putin stressed the need to return the situation in southern Syrian near the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights to the way it was ahead of the war that has lasted for more than seven years in Syria.

   Putin highlighted the need to defeat terrorists in southwestern Syria while keeping the forces of Syria and Israel separated.

   He referred specifically to the agreement signed in 1974, which officially ended the 1973 Arab-Israeli war and designated the lines of separation between Israel and Syria.

   On July 19, just a day after the summit, the state media outlets in Syria said the rebels in Quneitra province in southern Syria near the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights accepted to evacuate and surrender their heavy weapons to the Syrian army.

   Those who want to reconcile with the government remained in their areas to embark on a reconciliation process.

   The evacuation process is ongoing and the Syrian army has restored large swathes of territories in Quneitra, including the crossing with the Golan Heights.

   On Aug. 2, a war monitor group said the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) returned to its positions on the line of separation between Syria and the Israeli-occupied territories in the Golan Heights after leaving it in 2014.

   The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Russian military police and the Syrian forces have been deployed in Quneitra and in the disengagement zone after the entire province of Quneitra returned under the government's control.

   The UNDOF halted its operations in southern Syria in 2014 after the ultra-radical groups abducted UN peacekeepers in that area.

   The UNDOF forces were first deployed between Syria and the Golan Heights in 1974 to separate Syrian and Israeli forces after Israel occupied the Golan Heights during the 1967 war.

   In Syria, analysts have always highlighted the need for a consensus between superpowers to help bring an end to the long-standing conflict in the war-torn country.

   Additionally, the progress of the Syrian army since starting the "battle of the south" on June 19 has also been conducive in pushing the United States and Israel to accept the fact that the Syrian army is gaining the upper hand and that they need to act accordingly.

   Osama Danura, a Syrian political expert, told Xinhua that regarding the Syrian crisis, Putin came to the summit from a stance of power after victories of the Syrian army, adding that those victories have been crowned with Russian diplomatic success in containing the regional and international players in the Syrian war.

   The analyst said the Russian-U.S. summit marked a new stage of the understanding between both powers regarding the Syrian crisis in terms of finding a political solution now that the Syrian government is more stable and in control.

   The positive development has stopped on the situation in southern Syria, but also in northeastern Syria.

   Days after the summit, a delegation of the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Council (SDC) was invited to the Syrian capital Damascus for talks about the situation in predominantly-Kurdish areas in northeastern Syria.

   Later on, the SDC, the political wing of the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), declared that an agreement has been reached with Damascus "to draw a roadmap that would lead to a democratic, decentralized Syria."

   The meeting marked the recent will of Kurdish-led groups, who control roughly one quarter of Syria, to open channels with the administration of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to reach a political formula for the situation in northern Syria and possibly to preserve their autonomy amid reports that the SDF could hand over some of its positions to the Syrian army.

   Ilham Ahmed, executive head of the Syrian Democratic Council (SDC), said in a recent interview that further discussions will be held with the government, noting that first round of talks touched upon generalities.

   Mahmoud Meri, another expert, told Xinhua that there seems to be an understanding between Moscow and Washington that the Assad administration should regain control over all of Syria.

   He said the example in southern Syria is one of the signs, noting that rebel-held areas in northern Syria will follow their lead.

   Maher Ihsan, a Syrian journalist and a political expert, said the Russians have succeeded since entering the actual course of the Syrian crisis in 2015 to prove themselves as reliable negotiators and guarantors.

   All of the deals that have been reached with the rebels were spearheaded by the Russians, and their presence in Syria is achieving a sort of balance and a bridge between the Syrian government and the powers that were antagonists to the Assad government, he said.

   "The Russian-backed Syrian army has succeeded in restoring large swathes of territories across the country and that has shattered any foreign betting on the rebel groups, which have been falling one by one," Ihsan said.

   "When the West sensed that the rebels they were backing have largely failed, they come to realize the need to secure interests through negotiating with Russia, but this time Russia is negotiating from a stronger stance due to the victories on the ground," he added.

   This is why the recent Trump-Putin summit was positive in terms of the actual results on the ground and in light of the U.S. desire to withdraw forces from Syria while maintaining its interests in the Kurdish-controlled areas in northern Syria, which explains the Kurdish growing desire to talk and agree with Damascus, he noted.

          Primo test positivo per gli azzurrini: San Marino ko      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
La nazionale di Nicolato cala il poker nella prima gara amichevole in vista dei Mondiali

Italia Under 20 (©Figc)

La Nazionale Under 20 supera il suo primo test stagionale contro il San Marino. Una doppietta dell’atalantino Andrea Colpani, il rigore realizzato da Gabriele Gori, e la quarta rete segnata da Lorenzo Valeau regalano un rotondo successo (4-0) alla Nazionale giovanile guidata dal neo allenatore Paolo Nicolato, reduce dall’argento conquistato con la Under 19 al campionato Europeo di categoria. Oggi non erano presenti i giocatori protagonisti della rassegna continentale disputata in Finlandia, ma il cammino degli Azzurrini verso i Mondiali Under 20 che a maggio del prossimo anno si svolgeranno in Polonia, è iniziato oggi con questa amichevole disputata a Misano Adriatico.

Il match si risolve già nel primo tempo quando al 28’ Gori viene atterrato in area da Zavoli in uscita e dagli 11 metri l’attaccante con un lungo trascorso nelle giovanili della Fiorentina, in prestito al Foggia, non sbaglia. Il raddoppio arriva al 46’ con Colpani che da trenta metri fa partire un violento sinistro che trafigge l’estremo difensore sanmarinese. Il numero dieci dell’Atalanta si ripete con le stesse modalità al 63’ grazie a un rasoterra che si infila sulla destra di Zavoli. Chiude la partita Lorenzo Valeau che, servito in area da Gori, di piatto sinistro mette in rete il definitivo 4-0.

Soddisfatto il tecnico Azzurro al termine della partita: “A prescindere dal risultato – dichiara Nicolato -, ho avuto la possibilità di vedere nuovi giocatori e sono contento per l’atteggiamento che hanno tenuto in campo. Ho visto serietà, applicazione e tanta voglia di esserci: sono tutte cose di cui terremo conto nella formazione del gruppo che dovrà partecipare ai Mondiali Under 20 del prossimo anno”.

          Is China Out-Innovating America?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Whenever we denounce Chinese culture and educational methods for producing generations of mindless automatons, we point to America's superior technological innovation. We believe that our more free wheeling, creative, individualistic culture will out-innovate any other culture on earth. And that Chinese automatons will never be able to compete.


Now, the president of MIT, Rafael Reif offers us a sobering assessment of the innovation derby. As it happens, America seems to be falling behind China.


I cannot claim anything resembling competence in assessing these issues, so I will report Reif’s observation and analysis:


China is not an innovation also-ran that prospers mainly by copying other people’s ideas and producing them quickly at low cost. The country is advancing aggressively to assert technological supremacy in critical fields of science and technology.
In quantum computing, China’s Alibaba is battling Google to achieve the technical milestone of “quantum supremacy.” In 5G technology, the three largest global players are Nokia of Finland, Ericsson of Sweden — and Huawei of China, which is spending more than two and a half times as much on research and development as its two rivals. The Fuxing bullet train, designed and built in China, is the world’s fastest in regular operation.


China is also a world leader in fields like mobile payment and facial and spoken language recognition, where Chinese companies have made the most of their advanced algorithms and their advantages in scale and data access. It is also making bold national investments in key areas of research like biotechnology and space, and directly supporting start-ups and recruiting talent from around the world. And China has unrivaled capacity to rapidly ramp up large-scale production of advanced technology products and quickly bring innovation to market.


The United States still has an opportunity to catch up here. It’s strength,the president of MIT tells us, lies in its university system. We have more intellectual freedom than China, and therefore, the argument goes, we should be producing more innovators:

But China’s technological dominance is not inevitable. The United States has tremendous assets, including the immense global strength of our technology sector. This partly depends on a unique formula no other country has been able to copy: the large number of first-rate American universities pursuing advanced research with long-term federal support. This relationship is rooted in a national culture of opportunity and entrepreneurship, inspired by an atmosphere of intellectual freedom, supported by the rule of law and, crucially, pushed to new creative heights by uniting brilliant talent from every sector of our society and every corner of the world. For decades, these factors have helped make our nation the most powerful scientific and technological engine on Earth.


America has notably attracted talent from all over the world. But, as you and I know and as the president of MIT does not mention, that talent most often comes from Asia. Ph. D. programs in science and engineering are dominated by Asian students. They even outperform white American students.


Unfortunately, after they receive their degrees, these students are increasingly returning to their home countries.


Reif is surely correct to recommend a national strategy, directed by government and corporations:


While China is moving forward rapidly with a unified strategy called Made in China 2025 to become the world leader in manufacturing and technology, the United States has not made technological pre-eminence a matter of broad national focus.


But, ask  yourself this, how well will this university system work if it sets the goal of diversity ahead of the goal of technological superiority? Which matters more, diversity or excellence? As the student body becomes more diverse, will coursework need to be dumbed down?

And also, consider the fact that the radical leftists who work at Google have forced the company to withdraw from an artificial intelligence contract with the Pentagon. Googlers do not want to sully their hands working on drone technology.


If American corporations are going to limit their research to areas where they can assert ideological purity we are going to continue to fall behind China. After all, artificial intelligence has many applications. If you shut down research because it applies to America’s national defense, you are going to miss out on other technological advances. Besides, wasn’t the internet, that mammoth engine of marketing and sales, developed by the very same Pentagon?

          Bodensee YC Wins Youth SAILING Champions League      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
J/70 Youth SAILING Champions League- Travemunde, Germany(Travemunde, Germany)- The Youth SAILING Champions League was the latest innovation to be launched out of the successful SAILING Champions League format, and eighteen crews from eight nations raced each other in Travemünde, Germany, from 27 to 29 July. The first-ever league competition exclusively for sailors from 16 to 23 years old at Travemünde Week attracted prestigious yacht clubs from Austria, Croatia, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and Switzerland.

Some of the yacht clubs were already well-versed in the short-course windward-leeward style of racing the fleet of J/70 sportsboats. The Royal Danish Yacht Club (Kongelig Dansk Yachtklub) recently won the inaugural event in the Women’s SAILING Champions League at Kiel Week, in addition to also leading the overall standings at this stage of the Danish National Sailing League 2018.

Catharina Sandman, one of 17 female sailors competing in Travemünde, from the Finnish entry Nyländska Jaktklubben said, “Our team consists of two girls and three boys and our background is mostly in dinghies such as the Optimist, Laser, 29er and 49er. We have all been sailing together since we were kids mostly competing against each other so we are really excited to finally team up and join forces. We are very much looking forward to the first Youth SAILING Champions League and we are expecting tough competition with great spirit.”

J/70 Youth SAILING Champions League- Travemunde, GermanyAfter three days of intense competition and a nail-biting four-boat finale, it was the Bodensee Yacht Club Uberlingen from Germany’s Lake Constance that won the first ever event in the Youth SAILING Champions League after a stellar performance in Travemunde. Kongelig Dansk Yachtklub from Denmark was the runner-up ahead of fellow Danish team from Roskilde Sejlklub in third place.

Bodensee YC’s young crew consisted of helmsman Konstantin Steidle, Alexandra Lauber, Patrick Hasse and Jonathan Koch.  The team went into the finale as the third-ranked club, but secured the overall win.

Helmsman Konstantin Steidle explained, “The last race was really close and we are just happy to have won! It’s amazing, but we haven’t realized it so far. We sailed at our best in the final races. It was a tough competition, especially the Danish teams did a great job, as well.”

Crew Jonathan Koch commented on the new Finals format, “We were very nervous about the final races, but it was a lot of fun. It’s just all to zero before the races and every team can win. It’s a great idea.”

For the leading group, the final day was all about making sure you had done enough to make it through to the four-boat finale. After twelve flights with 36 races, the final was a battle Denmark vs. Germany: the Kongelig Dansk Yachtklub (KDY) and Roskilde Sejlklub from Denmark against Bodensee Yacht Club Uberlingen (BYCUe) and Lindauer Segler Club from Germany.

The new Finals format means that your overall position from Qualifying is taken into the Final Series. So as winner of the Qualifying Series, KDY carried through a first place and hence already one race win. Whichever of the four clubs secures two race wins would become the overall champion.

J/70 Youth SAILING ChampionsIn the first final race, BYCU won, putting them level with KDY, the winner of Qualifying. The other two yacht clubs were really starting to feel the heat, desperately needing a win in the next race. In final race 2, BYCU earned her second race win, giving the young crew from Germany the overall victory.

Oliver Schwall, founder and co-organizer of the SAILING Champions League said, “The experiment with the four-boat Finale was a great way to finish off the regatta. It keeps the interest and excitement for much longer, because whoever wins the last race becomes the overall winner. How often do you see that in sailing? It will be interesting to see if other areas of the sport pick up on this idea. We’re proud to have been the ones to pioneer it here in Travemunde at the first ever Youth SAILING Champions League.”

J/70 Youth SAILING Champions League interviewThe atmosphere among the eighteen clubs from eight nations was friendly, respectful and exemplary for other events. “The sportsmanship you showed during the event was outstanding and set the benchmark for sailing worldwide,” added Oliver Schwall at the prize giving ceremony. “This weekend has been an important step forward for the League concept, two big experiments confirmed as a success. Innovation is risky, but we had a good feeling about introducing a Youth SAILING Champions League, and actually, it has gone much better than I ever imagined. And with around 20% of the sailors being female, that created a fun atmosphere. It would be great see even more girls competing here in future events.”

Over the three days, the clubs experienced all kinds of wind conditions: from Freaky Friday, with the wind averaging 17 knots and gusting quite a bit more at times with big waves – it was a day to hang on to your hats – to lighter airs on Saturday and Sunday, putting a greater emphasis on tactics.

          Эльдис: Иматра. Финляндия.       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Рассказываю дальше!
Мы довольно спокойно пересекли границу и медленно поехали по узкой дороге к городу, это самый близкий к России город на том участке - Иматра.


053IMGP0464-1

История города - загадочное явление! Например, в википедии сообщают, что город основан в 1948 году и всех делов. То-есть не было ничего до этого...

Есть сайты, которые умудряются написать, что город основан в 1948 году, и при этом упоминать что-то этакое: "Первооткрывателем этого финского городка стала великая русская императрица Екатерина II. Она первая вместе со своей свитой совершила вояж к порогам Иматры. Именно пороги и водопад Иматранкоски превратили поездки русской аристократии в Финляндию в особый туристический шик".

Другой сайт пишет, что "Постоянное население Иматры сформировалось в XVI веке. В списке сел, составленном в начале XVII века, упоминаются практически все нынешние села Иматры", то-есть у Иматры были "сёла" в XVI веке, это не просто там какой-то посёлок...


0112IMGP0620.tif-1

Финская википедия сообщает, что Иматра упоминается в Калевале как место самых страшных колдунов. И хотя я помню, что самое колдовское место там Похъяла, но Иматра наверное там тоже есть, надо перечитать!
А вообще не удивительно слышать, что это место волшебное и связано с колдовством, ведь именно там находятся "исполинские котлы" - одно из 5 чудес Финляндии, и само название города - от финского «impi» - утонувшая девушка, русалка. По древним легендам в этих краях живут русалки, утонувшие девушки, которые после смерти получили другую, волшебную жизнь. Эти то русалки impi наверное и завлекают туда людей, ведь Иматра известен как город самоубийц, со всей Европы приезжали туда люди, чтобы прыгнуть в каньон с моста, покончив счёты с жизнью.


0110IMGP0614-1

Мост Самоубийц.

Финский город Иматра расположен у реки Вуокса, где имеется красивый водопад, в этом месте река протекает в глубокой впадине, через которую перекинут мост. Этот мост стал мостом самоубийц, со всей Европы приезжали сюда люди, желающие свести счёты с жизнью (только в 1911 году в водах Вуоксы ниже водопада было выловлено 59 тел).
Подробно по этой теме можно прочитать тут https://ru-finland.livejournal.com/463364.html, по ссылке можно увидеть фото камней с именами многих покончивших с собой - эти люди оставили по себе такую память. Особым шиком считалось прыгнуть с моста вдвоём. В связи с огромным количеством желающих, местные власти стали выделять жителям города деньги за то, что они вылавливали и хоронили тела... Жителям Петербурга выдавали билеты только в один конец!

"Imatran Impi" - монумент, воздвигнутый в память о погибших. Это русалка или сама река Вуокса, принявшая несчастных, бросившихся в бурлящий поток на каменистое дно.

На 2011 г. население города составляли 28 480 человек, это меньше нашего Ломоносова, но уровень жизни и инфраструктура города впечатляют! Мне показалось, что большая часть - это частный сектор, новостройки же выглядят так (снимала на ходу из машины)

046IMGP0446-1

Те, кто решится ехать туда на своей машине, должны знать, что штрафы за нарушения правил дорожного движения соответствуют уровню доходов финнов, а нашего туриста они сделают нищим и сирым. Никаких пробок на дорогах там нет, нет и перегруженных парковок, всё везде свободно, но встать нашему человеку не где, запрещено, зато для местных есть свои места. Для приезжих есть временные бесплатные парковки, чаще на 1 - 2 часа, но надо иметь вот такие часы, на которых выставлять каждый раз время остановки, чтобы проверяющие могли видеть, сколько времени машина стоит бесплатно. Надо ли говорить, что никаких проверяющих ни где нет, и никто не следит, правильно ли выставлено время? Но мы даже и не думали что-либо нарушать, ибо штрафы не шуточные...

0115IMGP0632-1

О ценах в магазинах и вообще о магазинах. Во-первых, не надо приезжать туда в выходные, финны не гоняются за прибылью на столько, чтобы работать по выходным. Почти все интересные магазины закрыты, кроме нескольких супермаркетов, которые специально заточены под русских туристов - это в основном продукты, и с 11 утра можно посетить несколько магазинчиков с вещами, которые могут закрыться, например, в 3 часа дня или как угодно будет владельцу. Зачем приезжают наши люди сюда за продуктами, мы не очень поняли, цены почти такие же, как у нас (только надо учитывать, что у финнов другие з.п), продукты тоже как в ленте или призме, вывезти можно: 1 банку икры, копчёную рыбу, до 1 кг. молочных продуктов, запрещено провозить мясо и свежую рыбу. Чай, кофе - да, есть, но и у нас в Питере есть...Моющие средства? Неужели за ними в финку??

Людей в магазине почти нет, из тех что есть - соотношение финнов и наших примерно 1 к 1. На информационных табличках чаще всего два-три языка: финский, русский, иногда английский.

Вообще русский язык там предусмотрен и всё тут... Даже наше мышление - русский ведь может и сигануть...

По берегам каньона Вуоксы расположен действительно потрясающий своей северной красотой парк! Сам каньон огорожен на всякий случай, вдруг кто-то решит обойтись без моста... Мы за эту ограду, ясное дело, перелезли, но не долго длилось наше счастье, проход так сузился, что пришлось перелезать обратно... Но потом ограда сама исчезла...

Одно из 5 чудес Финляндии - "Исполинские котлы". Находятся в Иматре. Всего их там 20 штук, глубина доходит до 10 - 15 метров. Не очень-то они "исполинские", но если не знать и наступить - минимум сломанные кости. Мы не знали... Но не наступали)) В прежние времена считались волшебными, сейчас учёные говорят, что они образовались потому, что почва неодинаково крепкая, и местный водопад их вот так водой выточил. Уж не знаю как! Где водопад, и где котлы, расстояние большое, и почему на 5 см правее, к примеру, где такая же почва, нет такой дырки?

          Documentarul ''Dancer'', regizat de Steven Cantor, deschide Bucharest International Dance Film Festival      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Lungmetrajul documentar "Dancer", regizat de Steven Cantor, va deschide, pe 6 septembrie, la Cinema "Elvire Popesco", cea de a patra ediţie a Bucharest International Dance Film Festival, informează organizatorii, într-un comunicat transmis joi AGERPRES. "Dancer" vorbeşte despre Sergei Polunin, care a revoluţionat lumea dansului, devenind cel mai tânăr solist al Royal Ballet. Înzestrat cu o putere uimitoare şi echilibru, aflat la apogeul carierei sale, la vârsta de 25 de ani, Polunin s-a retras din lumea dansului, celebritatea aducându-l aproape de autodistrugere. Documentarul este o explorare fără precedent a unui artist complex, care a făcut ca baletul să devină viral, se arată în descrierea peliculei. Steven Cantor, nominalizat la Oscar pentru primul lui documentar - "Blood Ties: The Life and Work of Sally Mann" (1993) - despre un controversat fotograf, este cunoscut pentru serialul documentar "Devil&#39;s Playground" şi lungmetrajele "Willie Nelson: Still Is Still Moving", "I Am an Animal" şi "Chasing Tyson". Bucharest International Dance Film Festival 2018 va avea loc în perioada 6 - 9 septembrie, la Cinema "Elvire Popesco" (Institutul Francez din România), Centrul Naţional al Dansului Bucureşti, LINOTIP - Centru Independent Coregrafic, DESCHIS Atelier, DESCHIS Gastrobar şi Qreator. La CNDB, sala Stere Popescu, va fi prezentat în premieră în România - pe 9 septembrie, de la ora 18,30 - spectacolul "IRIS", creat de coregrafa şi dansatoarea finlandeză Johanna Nuutinen. Pornind de la 17 interviuri cu persoane trecute de 80 de ani, spectacolul pune mai multe întrebări: "ce anume am vrea să vorbim atunci când sfârşitul se apropie? ce ne amintim cel mai mult? ce poate să ne spună o persoană cu atât de multă experienţă, dacă ne oprim şi ascultăm?". Fiecare dintre cele 17 persoane intervievate este un erou, care dezvăluie din înţelepciunea lui. Interviurile sunt baza a 5 poveşti suprarealiste, care compun o călătorie la graniţa dintre spaţiul sensibil al scenei şi peisajele sălbatice din film, se arată în comunicat. "IRIS" aduce pe scena Centrului Naţional al Dansului Bucureşti doi dansatori - Nathalie Ruiz şi Yvan Auzely - care au colaborat cu renumite companii internaţionale, precum Cullberg Ballet, Martha Graham şi Mats Ek Company. Spectacolul multidisciplinar explorează teme precum puterea, dorinţa şi supravieţuirea prin dans, film şi fotografie. "IRIS" vine cu o propunere inedită pentru public, prin sincronizarea a cinci filme de dans cu performance-ul celor doi dansatori. Bucharest International Dance Film Festival este un proiect al Asociaţiei Tangaj Dance, realizat cu sprijinul Centrului Naţional al Cinematografiei, Institutului Cultural Român, Consulatului Onorific al Republicii Islanda la Bucureşti, British Council şi Institutului Balassi, 4 Proof Film.

The northern lamps are among the world's most beautiful organic sights to behold, often producing people's lists of top 100 things you can do before you die. It is very important to understand prior to going to observe them that preparing is vital and knowing where you can go is much better than just longing for a magical lighting show to appear. Listed below are four of the greatest destinations on the planet to obtain a great see of the aurora borealis.

Norway

The northern lamps are most visible under the auroral oval which often encircles the planet earth between 60° and 70° latitude. Although it shifts constantly, it does not shift by much which is why is Norway the perfect destination to catch greater than a glimpse of the magnificent lamps. A Norwegian ferry cruise is fantastic for viewing the aurora for several reasons: first, you will need only journey from your own cabin to the deck to start to see the lamps, and second, the reflective Norwegian waters offer you an extraordinarily beautiful viewpoint.

Sweden

Abisko National Park is really a fantastically beautiful invest which to see an aurora borealis, and the Aurora Sky Station on Mount Nuolja is purpose constructed for the viewing pleasure. Visiting Swedish Lapland between November and March is almost all advisable because the skies are in their darkest then, providing the perfect backdrop for an impressive lights display. It must be mentioned that this section of Northern Sweden is among the most dependable for northern lamps sightings, an ideal destination for those people who are getting their first visit to see the lights.

Finland

Finnish Lapland specifically is ideal for an action-loaded, snowy holiday in addition to for seeing a magnificent lights display. Trip on a husky sled, meet up with the reindeer or visit SANTA CLAUS, all fantastic winter actions. Between and January November, this section of Finland includes a surreal environment of eternal dusk because the sun does not really go above the horizon. Needless to say, this also makes for wonderful aurora viewing opportunities once the sky is clear.

Ökningen av utländska turisters övernattningar i inkvarteringsanläggningarna i Finland bröts i maj och minskade ytterligare i juni 2018. För dem bokfördes drygt 590 000 övernattningsdygn, vilket var 4,8 procent färre än året innan. Däremot ökade övernattningarna av finländska turister med 4,5 procent och de övernattade nästan 1,6 miljoner gånger i inkvarteringsanläggningar. Totalt bokförde inkvarteringsanläggningarna i Finland något under 2,2 miljoner övernattningsdygn, vilket var 1,8 procent fler än i juni 2017. Uppgifterna är preliminära uppgifter i Statistikcentralens inkvarteringsstatistik och har samlats in från inkvarteringsanläggningar med minst 20 bäddplatser eller husvagnsplatser med eluttag.

          Nokia's credit rating rises out of junk territory at Fitch      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Nokia Corp.'s credit rating was upgraded to BBB- from BB+ at Fitch Ratings, effectively lifting the Finland-based network infrastructure giant's credit out of junk territory. The rating outlook is stable. Nokia's U.S.-listed shares slipped 0.7% in midday trade. "The upgrade reflects the successful implementation of Nokia's cost savings programme, integration of Alcatel Lucent and visibility of sufficiently strong operating margins given the current phase of the industry cycle," Fitch said in a statement. A BBB- rating is Fitch's lowest investment-grade rating. The credit rating agency said Nokia's rating is now in line with Sweden-based peer Telefonaktiebolaget LM Ericsson , which is also BBB- and stable. Nokia's stock has rallied 15% year to date, while Ericsson's U.S.-listed shares have climbed 19% and the S&P 500 has gained 6.9%.

          Els tripulants de cabina de Finnair al Prat convoquen una vaga els dos últims caps de setmana d’agost i el primer de setembre      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

La plantilla de la companyia de bandera finlandesa ‘Finnair’ de l’aeroport del Prat, uns 50 treballadors, ha convocat una vaga per els dos últims caps de setmana del mes d’agost (el 18 i 19 d’agost i el 25 i 26 d’agost) i el primer de setembre (1 i 2 de setembre), segons ha comunitat el sindicat Unió Sindical Obrera de Catalunya (USOC). De confirmar-se la convocatòria els pròxims dies, la vaga afectaria als sis vols de connexió entre l’aeroport del Prat i Hèlsinki, tres vols per cada sentit, que diàriament estan programats durant els caps de setmana de la temporada d’estiu. Usoc ha condicionat el manteniment de la convocatòria al resultat de la negociació de mediació que està convocada a les 10h del mati d’aquest divendres al departament de Treball.

Els treballadors reclamen ser reconeguts amb la categoria professional de tripulants de cabina en comptes de la categoria d’auxiliars administratius que figura en la nòmina i una millora de les condicions salarials. Els treballadors que estan al servei de Finnair a Barcelona tenen un contracte laboral a través de l’empresa temporal ‘Atlas’ del grup Adecco i se’ls aplica un conveni d’empresa que no reconeix les particularitats del sector aeri, segons ha explicat Yasmina Maté, delegada d’USO Catalunya a Finnair-Barcelona. Maté assegura que treballadors amb 30 anys d’experiència laboral en companyies regulars del sector aeri estan cobrant a Finnair uns 1.200 euros si treballen com tripulants de cabina i s’arriba fins els 1.500 euros si s’és sobrecàrrec.


          ¿Bolsas plásticas? Nein, danke!      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Así como a mediados de la década de 1970 Anne Lund diseñó el logo del sol sonriente para decirle _“nein, danke”_ a la energía nuclear, Uruguay empezó la semana pasada a decirles “no, gracias” a las bolsas plásticas. Esto, sin dudas, es un alivio. Finalmente, lo que en las últimas semanas parecía tan complicado ocurrió. El proyecto de ley que declara de interés general la prevención y reducción del impacto ambiental derivado del uso de bolsas plásticas fue aprobado en la Comisión de Medio Ambiente y ayer, en la Cámara de Senadores, [se convirtió en ley](https://ladiaria.com.uy/articulo/2018/8/se-aprobo-proyecto-de-ley-de-uso-sustentable-de-bolsas-plasticas/ "Se aprobó proyecto de ley de uso sustentable de bolsas plásticas"). Para cumplir sus objetivos, el proyecto establece acciones que buscan desestimular el uso, promover la reutilización, impulsar el reciclado y habilitar otras formas de valorización de las bolsas plásticas. No se trata, aunque perfectamente podría serlo, de una ley de talante prohibicionista que busque llevarse puestos costumbres, negocios y fuentes de trabajo, sino el producto de la constatación de que la llamada Edad del Plástico llegó para quedarse y que Uruguay no puede permanecer quieto a un costado del camino. En menos de una quincena de artículos, el proyecto sí excluye la posibilidad de fabricar, importar, distribuir, vender o entregar bolsas que no sean compostables o biodegradables; establece el cobro y proceso de certificación de las bolsas que sí puedan distribuirse; obliga a los titulares de puntos de venta de bolsas a un conjunto de acciones orientadas a disminuir los impactos asociados a su uso, y establece que el Ministerio de Industria, Energía y Minería habrá de organizar un plan de reconversión de la industria nacional de bolsas plásticas, así como el fomento de soluciones tecnológicas y desarrollo de nuevos productos y mercados tendientes a minimizar los impactos ambientales derivados del uso de bolsas plásticas no biodegradables. En el contexto de su campaña “Sacá la bolsa del medio”, el Ministerio de Vivienda, Ordenamiento Territorial y Medio Ambiente dejó el desafío muy claro: se estima que en nuestro pequeño país se utilizan, en promedio, la friolera de 1.200 millones de bolsas plásticas por año. Un aporte nada despreciable al ciclo geológico de este material, si tenemos en cuenta los 500.000 millones de bolsas que se utilizan anualmente en todo el planeta. Datos, no opiniones. Ahora bien, si consideramos que cuando este proyecto comenzó a discutirse Francia ya había prohibido las bolsas plásticas, o que Finlandia nunca ha necesitado una normativa específica para lograr altos niveles de uso de bolsas reutilizables, ¿por qué importa entonces que esto esté pasando? Importa porque esta es la primera (y, hasta el momento, la única) ley fuertemente identificada con el cuidado del ambiente aprobada en esta legislatura y por el partido que gobierna, frente a una oposición que dice mucho pero hace poco en los departamentos en los que le toca gobernar. Importa porque, implícitas en las acciones que en su marco se pretende impulsar, descansan, aunque más bien tímidamente, algunos rasgos de otro tipo de sociedad. Si bien no es para nada fácil coincidir con las ideas sociales y económicas del conservador británico Zac Goldsmith, su frase sobre las bolsas plásticas es un inmejorable llamado a la reflexión: “De todos los residuos que generamos, las bolsas plásticas son quizá el mayor símbolo de la sociedad del use y tire. Se utilizan y se olvidan, dejando tras de ellas un legado terrible”. La política, en especial la de izquierda, supone jugarse por ideas con otros mundos en mente, y si bien la noción de que tenemos que prestar mayor atención a las formas (y ritmos) de nuestro consumo no es nueva, pareciera que cualquier llamado a construir marcos que comprendan y ordenen la “libre” autodeterminación de nuestras vidas es visto automáticamente como una amenaza. Esto no debe ser así, y aunque lo haga de manera sobradamente modesta, esta ley toma partido. Junto a la Ley para la Gestión Integral de Residuos, a estudio de la misma comisión en el Senado, se generan aquí condiciones para considerar de forma integral estas otras aristas socioambientales, cuidando a todos y lo que es de todos, incluso si esto supone ir en contra de ciertos intereses sectoriales y/o individuales. Frente a la dificultad de aprehender la escala de la crisis ambiental contemporánea, estos pequeños pasos pueden parecer absolutamente insignificantes, pero hay otras maneras de visualizarlos en contextos más amplios. El inglés Jeremy Davies, en su excelente _El nacimiento del Antropoceno_, propone lo de los tiempos geológicos. Los ambientalistas, nos dice, “deben considerarse atrapados en la transición entre dos intervalos geológicos [el Holoceno y el Antropoceno], y su tarea es negociar un camino que la atraviese”, y esto implica abandonar el objetivo absurdo de lograr una “sustentabilidad indefinida” para el modo en que nos organizamos como sociedad. El Antropoceno, como tal, no es negociable, y lo que toca más bien es actuar para salvaguardar y reconstruir la pluralidad en las formas de relacionarnos con la naturaleza, en contra de la tendencia simplificadora y homogeneizante de la sociedad capitalista actual. En un proceso que comenzó antes de la Revolución Industrial pero se afirmó decididamente una vez que esta mostró su cara más visible, más y más regiones de nuestro planeta se han visto envueltas por la necesidad de asumir un modelo de producción y consumo de la naturaleza lineal que genera cada vez más residuos, en cantidad y complejidad. La primera reacción, asociada a la antigua lógica del higienismo, fue separarnos de esa amenazante masa de residuos por los evidentes impactos que estos generaban en la salud (y, como se creía también en aquellos tiempos, en la moralidad). Pero, como diría Barry Commoner en una de sus célebres cuatro leyes de la ecología, “en la Naturaleza, todo va a parar a algún lugar”, y la apuesta por la sostenibilidad de este modelo terminó por jugarnos (más temprano que tarde) una mala pasada. Si se tienen dudas de lo anterior, basta con tomarse un 109, bajarse en Camino Carrasco y Felipe Cardoso, caminar unas cuadras y admirar el sitio de disposición final de la Intendencia de Montevideo, cuyas montañas de residuos ya son uno de los sitios más altos de la capital, luego del Cerro de Montevideo. ¿Qué podemos esperar de la aprobación de estas leyes, además de (ojalá) mucho menos plástico en nuestras ciudades? Quizá podamos tomarnos un momento para reflexionar sobre una necesidad. Si la izquierda, en un determinado momento histórico, tuvo a bien construir una cultura de la clase trabajadora, ahora le haría bien considerar si es posible y viable (o necesario) construir cultura y ciudadanía ambiental. En tanto podemos aprender a verlo como una fuente de crítica coherente a la sociedad en la que vivimos, el ambientalismo ofrece a la izquierda uruguaya una ocasión inmejorable de relanzar el debate de las ideas. Atrapada en lo que a veces parece ser un callejón sin salida en sus ideas sobre desarrollo y cómo conciliar una mirada más integral de sus “éxitos” productivos con el cuidado del ambiente, la política de los gobiernos del Frente Amplio tiene que cuidarse de no repetir el trágico destino de Narciso: luego de rechazar a Eco, y perdidamente enamorado de sí mismo, acabó por ahogarse en las aguas de un estanque. _Andrés Carvajales es biólogo.

          RANKED: The 10 best airlines in Europe      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Lufthansa Boeing 747 8Lufthansa

  • Consumer aviation website Skytrax recently released their ranking of the best airlines in the world.
  • Asia and Middle Eastern airlines have dominated the top of the rankings, but European carriers have also performed well.
  • In 2018, five European airlines made it into the top 20 of the overall rankings including Lufthansa, Swiss, and KLM

Consumer aviation website Skytrax recently released its 2018 rankings of the best airlines in the world. Once again Asian and Middle Eastern like Singapore, Emirates, and Cathay Pacific dominate the upper echelons of the list

However, European airlines have more than held their own. 

In fact, the last non-Asian airline to take home Skytrax's Airline of the Year award was British Airways in 2006.

This year, five European airlines including Lufthansa, Swiss, and KLM managed to make it into the top 20. In addition to the overall rankings, European carriers have also garnered praise for their cabin service, catering, and customer service. 

For example, Air France's La Premiere suites helped the airline win best first-class catering and best first class in Europe. While Russia's Aeroflot won the award for best catering in premium economy. 

This year, a few of Europe's leading airlines made some major moves up and down the rankings. Aeroflot moved up seven spots to 23rd in the overall rankings. While British Airways moved up nine spots to 31st overall. This moved the venerable British carrier into Europe's top 10. On the flip side, Turkish Airlines slipped from 12th overall down to 16th place. Norwegian Air fell from 28th overall to 32. This lost the Olso-based carrier its spot in Europe's top 10. 

The Skytrax rankings are based on the impressions of 20.36 million travelers from more than 100 different countries. The unpaid survey, which covered more than 335 airlines, measured 49 parameters ranging from boarding procedures to seat comfort to the quality of service.

Here's a closer look at the 10 best airlines in Europe:

10. British Airways

British Airways

Overall rank: 31

Why it's awesome: British Airways is the largest airline in the UK by fleet size and was formed in 1974 following the merger of British European Airways (BEA) and British Overseas Airways Corporation (BOAC). These days, British Airways is the centerpiece of International Airlines Group which also includes Iberia, Vueling, and Aer Lingus. In 2006, British Airways took the top spot in the Skytrax rankings. It was the last time a non-Asian airline won the top prize. 

For 2018, British Airways also won the Skytrax award for Best Cabin Crew in the United Kingdom. 

See additional airline information at Skytrax.



9. Virgin Atlantic

Overall rank: 29

Why it's awesome: Virgin Atlantic is the crown jewel of Sir Richard Branson's aviation holdings. However, with a 49% stake in the airline, Delta is actually VA's largest single shareholder. Virgin Group retains only 20% of the airline's shares. But VA's service, product, and ambiance are all Branson. From the purple mood lighting all the way to the stylish crew uniforms. 

See additional airline information at Skytrax.



8. Finnair

Finnair

Overall rank: 27

Why it's awesome: Finland's national airline moved down two spots this year to finish as the 27th best airline in the world. Fortunately, the Helsinki-based carrier was once again named Best Airline in Northern Europe by Skytrax. Finnair operates an all-Airbus mainline fleet while its regional operations feature aircraft from Bombardier and Embraer.

Review by Your Imaginary Friend

From Finland: Cool psych toned indie rock, feels like early Ride or Spiritualized smoking Neu. Stripped down distant vocals, guitar bass drums. Fans of Spacemen 3, Th’ Faith Healers, Loop, Red Lorry Yellow Lorry. Glen Branca and Sonic Youth are huge references, fittingly as there are 5 guitars in the band, much like the Branca Orchestra (which gave birth to SY) was notorious for. Most vocals are in Finnish.

A1)** (4:55) driving krautrock urgency, super cool wall of noise bridge, fine stuff A2) (3:54) upbeat and driving and peppy and indie rock, vocals in Glen Branca rock really apparent here A3) (7:30) big heavy head nodding beat, vocals come in late B1) (5:12) big heavy epic head nodding, lots of chiming guitars a la SY B2)*** (10:09) all instrumental, an urgent lovely wash of blissful rockin out jam, chorused guitars, god this reminds me an epic Glen Branca jam or something

          YouTube flagging wars: warning on my video about White Supremacist serpent seed theorists      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Due to the video I posted about my book Cain as Serpent Seed of Satan, vol. IV, YouTube wrote me the following, “We believe in the principles of free speech, even when that speech is unpopular or potentially offensive to some viewers” about which I will say ROFL!!!
They followed up with:
“However, YouTube doesn't allow hate speech or content that promotes or incites violence. In some cases, flagged videos that do not clearly breach the Community Guidelines but whose content is potentially controversial or offensive may remain up, but with some features disabled.”

Also:
“Your video will be shown after a warning message. In addition, certain features such as comments, sharing, thumbs up, and suggested videos have been disabled. Your video is also ineligible for monetization.”

So no, you cannot even comment on the video with statements such as—oh, I don’t know—this video contains absolutely ZERO hate speech or content that promotes or incites violence.

They also blocked it in the following countries:
“Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Switzerland, Cyprus, Czechia, Germany, Denmark, Estonia, Spain, Finland, France, United Kingdom, French Guiana, Guadeloupe, Greece, Croatia, Hungary, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Latvia, Martinique, Malta, New Caledonia, Netherlands, French Polynesia, Poland, Saint Pierre and Miquelon, Portugal, Reunion, Romania, Sweden, Slovenia, Slovakia, French Southern Territories, Wallis and Futuna, Mayotte.”

the white Adamic race)…Satan probably
appeared to Eve as a handsome white
god…the white race is a race of gods…”
—Willie Martin

Cain as Serpent Seed of Satan 4.jpg

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Within my appeal, I wanted to write:
“Good day, please be aware that many people use your alter system in order to take down videos/channels they do not personally like. Also, when you rely on impersonal algorithms which flag videos based on key words, errors will occur that this is one such a case. I received a message that stated ‘YouTube doesn't allow hate speech or content that promotes or incites violence.’ There is absolutely zero promotion or incitation of violence in my video. In fact, the video is specifically against racism, White supremacism, etc. Thus, please remove the misplaced warning message. Moreover, it has been blocked in multiple countries so please remove this block.”

I wanted to but could not since the appeal section only allows a tweet sized sentence. In any case, I elucidated that the video contains no such thing.

In about one minute, the reply was:
“Thank you for submitting your video appeal to YouTube. After re-reviewing your video New book on White Supremacist who hold to the Cain as Serpent Seed of Satan theory, we've decided to leave the restrictions in place on your video.
Our commitment to you
We take your videos and the YouTube community feedback seriously. We provide all uploaders with an option to appeal any removal or restriction of their videos. When an appeal is submitted to us, we work quickly to review the content and take appropriate action, including restoring videos that have been mistakenly removed.”

So now, when you go to watch the video, you will first see:
“The following content has been identified by the YouTube community as inappropriate or offensive to some audiences” with the options of “Continue” or “Cancel” and within it, you will see:
“Certain features have been disabled for this video
In response to user reports, we have disabled some features, such as comments, sharing, and suggested videos, because this video contains content that may be inappropriate or offensive to some audiences.”

Once you appeal, you are basically simply cut off from contacting YouTube (unless you are some sort of high money earner which I am utterly not) so I found a way to tell Google that I had an issue:
“I am a Jew who made a video AGAINST White supremacist racism and now YT is attacking me by claiming that my video contains ‘hate speech or content that promotes or incites violence,’ they rejected my appeal and thus, leaving me no way to defend myself. I would ask how they sleep at night but I imagine that the answer is that they sleep on a gigantic pile of money.”

Yes, it would take—my oh, my—all of two mouse clicks away from YouTube to find out that I am a Jew.

But perhaps I am misreading the whole thing: the video may have been flagged by White supremacist racists who wanted to keep me from exposing their racism—but I will not hold my breath at this option.

          RANKED: The 10 best airlines in Europe      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Lufthansa Boeing 747 8

  • Consumer aviation website Skytrax recently released their ranking of the best airlines in the world.
  • Asia and Middle Eastern airlines have dominated the top of the rankings, but European carriers have also performed well.
  • In 2018, five European airlines made it into the top 20 of the overall rankings including Lufthansa, Swiss, and KLM

Consumer aviation website Skytrax recently released its 2018 rankings of the best airlines in the world. Once again Asian and Middle Eastern like Singapore, Emirates, and Cathay Pacific dominate the upper echelons of the list

However, European airlines have more than held their own. 

In fact, the last non-Asian airline to take home Skytrax's Airline of the Year award was British Airways in 2006.

This year, five European airlines including Lufthansa, Swiss, and KLM managed to make it into the top 20. In addition to the overall rankings, European carriers have also garnered praise for their cabin service, catering, and customer service. 

For example, Air France's La Premiere suites helped the airline win best first-class catering and best first class in Europe. While Russia's Aeroflot won the award for best catering in premium economy. 

This year, a few of Europe's leading airlines made some major moves up and down the rankings. Aeroflot moved up seven spots to 23rd in the overall rankings. While British Airways moved up nine spots to 31st overall. This moved the venerable British carrier into Europe's top 10. On the flip side, Turkish Airlines slipped from 12th overall down to 16th place. Norwegian Air fell from 28th overall to 32. This lost the Olso-based carrier its spot in Europe's top 10. 

The Skytrax rankings are based on the impressions of 20.36 million travelers from more than 100 different countries. The unpaid survey, which covered more than 335 airlines, measured 49 parameters ranging from boarding procedures to seat comfort to the quality of service.

Here's a closer look at the 10 best airlines in Europe:

Los trabajadores de la aerolínea finlandesa Finnair en el Aeropuerto Barcelona-El Prat, representados por Unión Sindical Obrera (USO), protagonizarán una huelga convocada para los días 18, 19, 25 y 26 de agosto, y 1 y 2 de septiembre, si la reunión que tendrá lugar este viernes en la Consellería de Trabajo de la Generalitat no fructifica. En concreto, se trata de unos 50 trabajadores de la base de Finnair en Barcelona que la compañía tiene subcontratados por la empresa Atlas, dependiente de la oficina de trabajo temporal Adecco Outsourcing que, según el sindicato, «les aplica un convenio de empresa que no reconoce las particularidades del sector aéreo». Reinvindicaciones laborales Como ha apuntado en un comunicado USO, los trabajadores de El Prat han reclamado la categoría profesional de tripulantes de cabina porque, han asegurado, «ahora aparecen en nómina como auxiliares administrativos». Piden también una mejora de las condiciones salariales, ya que su nómina oscila entre los 1.200 y 1.500 para tripulantes de cabina, «salarios por debajo incluso de las peores compañías de bajo coste». Todas estas peticiones se dirigen a Adecco Outsourcing a raíz de un cambio de convenio empresarial, el año pasado, que modificó algunas de las condiciones laborales de los trabajadores de Finnair en España, según ha afirmado una delegada de USO en Finnair-Barcelona. Madrid Finnair tiene, además de una base en Barcelona, la principal en España, otra en Madrid que cuenta con entre 20 y 25 trabajadores con los que Adecco sí pactó una mejora salarial posteriormente al cambio de convenio, por lo que la huelga convocada sólo afecta a los empleados de la aerolínea en la capital catalana. «Hemos negociado las condiciones con ellos. Hemos intentado ser flexibles. Si fueran medidas tan desventajosas no las habrían aceptado en Madrid. Les propusimos las mismas condiciones y Madrid las aceptó sin ningún problema», ha asegurado una fuente interna de Adecco. La compañía ha apuntado su desconocimiento sobre «los motivios por los que en Barcelona no las han aceptado». Reunión decisiva Mañana a las 10.00 horas la subcontrata de Finnair y los representantes sindicales se reunirán en el departamento de Trabajo de la Generalitat para intentar mediar el conflicto y llegar a un acuerdo. Adecco ya ha adelantado que mañana irán «con toda la disposición», aunque la oferta por parte de la compañía será la misma, al considerar que mejorarla «no sería justo» para los trabajadores de Madrid que sí que la aceptaron. Si no se alcanza ninguna solución consensuada, los trabajadores llevarán a cabo los paros anunciados para los fines de semana de finales de agosto y principios de septiembre. Finnair realiza cuatro trayectos diarios, dos en cada sentido, entre Barcelona y Helsinki, la capital de Finlandia, y seis trayectos los sábados y los domingos, y el número de pasajeros afectados por vuelo es de unos 200.

showerthoughtsofficial:

The Finnish language is one of the most difficult languages in the world to learn as a non-native. It is spoken by roughly 5,5 million people, and only in one country. Finnish is not endangered and nearly all finns speak english. Therefore, finnish is THE most useless language in the world to learn.

1. There is no such language as “the most difficult language to learn”. There are over 7000 languages in the world, how could you possibly know which one is the most difficult one? Besides, whether you find a language difficult or not depends on many factors, such as your native language, the other languages you speak, your attitude towards (learning) the language, etc. 

2. Finnish is not only spoken in Finland. It is spoken also in Sweden, Norway, Russia, and many other foreign countries by people who have for one reason or other moved abroad. 

3. Nearly all Finns learn and speak English as a foreign language, but in our daily lives we speak and use Finnish. English hasn’t and won’t replace Finnish. 

4. No language is useless as long as there are at least two people who speak/understand it.

5. Fuck you, @showerthoughtsofficial

Don't give up on hope. 


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

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



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


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

Here is a video I made Streets of London 

"Streets of London" is a song written by Ralph McTell. It was first recorded for McTell's 1969 album Spiral Staircase but was not released in the United Kingdom as a single until 1974. It was his greatest commercial success, reaching number two in the UK singles chart, at one point selling 90,000 copies a day  and winning him the Ivor Novello Award and a Silver disc for record sales.

It translates well into a protest song against the senseless riots 2011. I love the song. I despise the rioters who hurt and maim the strugglers trying to get by, complaining that they lack educational opportunity or respect.

Some things should not happen, but they do. A gay marriage referendum could pilot electronic voting to make the process cheaper. Combine it with postal for those who cannot use internet. Make the internet vote verifiable, as opposed to secret, and all problems disappear. But even so, cost should not be an oppositional factor to gay marriage. Let people have their say. Let there be open debate. The ALP have tried to walk down both sides of the street on this issue. They have opposed gay marriage all along, but have claimed to support it. Only a conservative government can protect churches from litigation that same sex marriage would entail. At the moment, some churches will have to restrict marriages to only their members marrying other members. Some churches really want to marry gays. Terrorists want to kill gays. There is already civil union. I personally feel it is a terrible over reach that the state decides how religious institutions treat customs. I don't need government to applaud my bed partner. There are many things that are legal I will never do. 

On this day in history, in 48BC at the Battle of Pharsalus Julius Caeser comprehensively defeated Pompey. The battle had Caeser with 22000 weary veterans faced off against 45000 rested men. Pompey had the high ground and local support. Both formed three lines of men. Pompey's lines were ten men deep. A river (Enipius) was on one side and so Pompey and Caeser had their cavalry on the other side. Caeser short ranked his lines so as to place infantry in support of cavalry in a fourth line. Caeser's cavalry was smaller than Pompey, and when Pompey's cavalry ran through them, they met the fourth line and were crushed by close quarter pole arms. This allowed Caeser, leading his cavalry, to fall on the flank of Pompey's forces and routing them. Pompey fled, dressed as a peasant, and collected his gold before fleeing to Egypt. The Pharaoh executed Pompey and sent Caeser his head. That was a mistake, as Caeser had wanted to forgive Pompey and unify Rome. 

In 378 at the battle of Adrianople the Roman emperor Valens was killed fighting Visigoths who won the battle. It was a mighty turning point, and within a hundred years the empire would collapse. In 1173, the construction of what is now called the Leaning Tower of Pisa began. In 1483, mass was given for the opening of the Sistine Chapel. In 1854, Henry David Thoreau published Walden, a book reflecting on simple living in a natural environment as few people can. In 1892, Thomas Edison invented a two way telegraph. In 1930 Betty Boop debuted in Dizzy Dishes. In 1936, Jesse Owens won his fourth gold medal at the Berlin Olympics. In 1942 at the Battle of Savo Island, US allied forces were defeated by the Japanese, just prior to the US invasion of Guadalcanal. In 1944 Smokey Bear was seen for the first time. In 1944 at The Vyborg–Petrozavodsk Offensive, the Finnish held the Soviet Union to a stalemate. In 1945, Fat Man was dropped on Nagasaki, vaporising 39000 people and the Japanese Government later gave an unconditional surrender. In 1965, Singapore became the only nation to be given independence unwillingly, from Malaysia. In 1969, Charles Manson went on a murder spree, killing among others, Sharon Tate, pregnant wife of Roman Polanski. In 1974, Nixon resigned rather than facing the Clinton style disgrace of impeachment.

It is Census night in Australia and the government is asking for information and nervous nellies are hand wringing in protest. The process is available online for most. Exceptions being GLB peoples who are required to submit paper versions as the online version doesn't accept their answers. Also, a tenant living in a family home should not be put in first, unless the entire document has to be bodgied. After my details were entered first, the online system believed the Landlord was the tenant and kept asking if his wife was my daughter. So we erased my details, and inputed my details last. I don't think I'm the wife's daughter, but in 99 years you will know if I made a mistake. Or maybe Wikileaks will know first. I am an evangelical Christian, a very fast growing movement who are not included in the census response list. Pentecostal is close, but 'Other' and then 'Christian' is the best response to allow statisticians to know I'm not Anglican, Catholic etc etc who would otherwise get funding. It is why my church is currently searching for a home for her three hundred or so members. I do a lot of volunteer work, and the census needs to know that too. Please don't feed garbage to the census. Particularly if you don't want funding allocated in the mistaken belief that global warming has eliminated people like you. The global warming movement employ hyperbole. Don't make it seem real. 

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

Correction to yesterday's post. Australian cricketers spent 4 months prior to the Ashes series practice with the Duke ball. However, the comments regarding the Australian team not playing with appropriate, practiced skill still stands. Only it isn't the coaches fault. Or the Captain. It was the players who somehow failed to play with skill, with the batting exceptions of Rogers, Smith and Warner. 

It is important to apologise and rectify mistakes when they are made. Andrew Bolt has apologised to Bronwyn Bishop for demanding she resign when the ALP prosecuting her case refuse to resign for worse errors of judgment. Expenses are a hard area to police. Bishop had behaved within the rules. But the media prosecuted her and excused the ALP, and continue to excuse the ALP. Tony Burke, who had no problem drowning people, so long as he could keep their names in a drawer on a post-it, does not seem aware of the hypocrisy of his position. Burke is willing to pay back $90 for a com car, but not the tens of thousands of dollars he has claimed for taking his children on holidays, business class. Burke can't raise the dead, but he might support a policy that works. 

Insiders interviewed Greens Leader Richard Di Natale but refused to challenge his obfuscations or lies. Di Natale claimed credit for opposing cuts to Education needed to ensure the provision of Education remains ongoing. Similarly he patted himself on the back for opposing a small fee of $7 for visiting a doctor, and a fund of $20 billion for science research. Doctors deserve the pay rise and health needs to be sustainable. It doesn't benefit poor people if Australia can no longer pay for health care or education. 
From 2014
US is dropping bombs on Iraq. This policy will be to oppose the militants whom have been successful because the Obama and Iran backed regime have divided the nation. Money has funded the militants directly from banks they have robbed. Chemical weapons from Saddam's armoury are in their grasp. Civilians are being slaughtered in substantial numbers on any pretext. Some militants are from the west. Ironically, Obama sought to aid these militants last year with his desire to bomb Syria. Obama wanted to bomb Syria but Russia said 'no.' So bombing Syria would have helped these militants, while bombing Iraq will, apparently, oppose the militants. It is pertinent that Obama's plan to bomb civilians coincides with Truman's vaporising 39000 at Nagasaki. Truman's targets weren't military. They were soft. One feels that Obama has similar targets. Meanwhile, Russia is acting proportionately in her diplomacy and it is rattling the media. Russia is applying sanctions against industry, but not all. The UN has demanded that Russia stop supplying Ukrainian separatists with weapons. However, the UN is taking no action to defend those separatists from Ukrainian aggression, which has been evident while Australia and Holland were trying to extract victims of MH17 recently. Obama has sided with Ukraine, which is an illegitimate government that dumped the elected government on a corruption pretext. Ukraine's illegitimate government sparked the crisis by threatening Russia's access to her own naval port. The one unifying element to all of it is Obama. Obama is all over the place policy wise, but never showing wisdom or competence. Today is the anniversary of Nixon resigning. If Obama must copy mistakes of the past, let it be that.

I am publishing a book called Bread of Life: January

Bread of Life is a daily bible quote with a layman's understanding of the meaning. I give one quote for each day, and also a series of personal stories illustrating key concepts eg Who is God? What is a miracle? Why is there tragedy?

January is the first of the anticipated year-long work of thirteen books. One for each month and the whole year. It costs to publish. It (Kindle version) should retail at about $2US online, but the paperback version would cost more, according to production cost.
If you have a heart for giving, I fundraise at gofund.me/27tkwuc
