The Uninhabitable Earth
Famine, economic collapse, a sun that cooks us: What climate change could wreak — sooner than you think.

By David Wallace-Wells

In the jungles of Costa Rica, where humidity routinely tops 90 percent, simply moving around outside when it’s over 105 degrees Fahrenheit would be lethal. And the effect would be fast: Within a few hours, a human body would be cooked to death from both inside and out. Fossils by Heartless Machine

I. ‘Doomsday’
Peering beyond scientific reticence.

It is, I promise, worse than you think. If your anxiety about global warming is dominated by fears of sea-level rise, you are barely scratching the surface of what terrors are possible, even within the lifetime of a teenager today. And yet the swelling seas — and the cities they will drown — have so dominated the picture of global warming, and so overwhelmed our capacity for climate panic, that they have occluded our perception of other threats, many much closer at hand. Rising oceans are bad, in fact very bad; but fleeing the coastline will not be enough.

Indeed, absent a significant adjustment to how billions of humans conduct their lives, parts of the Earth will likely become close to uninhabitable, and other parts horrifically inhospitable, as soon as the end of this century.

Even when we train our eyes on climate change, we are unable to comprehend its scope. This past winter, a string of days 60 and 70 degrees warmer than normal baked the North Pole, melting the permafrost that encased Norway’s Svalbard seed vault — a global food bank nicknamed “Doomsday,” designed to ensure that our agriculture survives any catastrophe, and which appeared to have been flooded by climate change less than ten years after being built.

The Doomsday vault is fine, for now: The structure has been secured and the seeds are safe. But treating the episode as a parable of impending flooding missed the more important news. Until recently, permafrost was not a major concern of climate scientists, because, as the name suggests, it was soil that stayed permanently frozen. But Arctic permafrost contains 1.8 trillion tons of carbon, more than twice as much as is currently suspended in the Earth’s atmosphere. When it thaws and is released, that carbon may evaporate as methane, which is 34 times as powerful a greenhouse-gas warming blanket as carbon dioxide when judged on the timescale of a century; when judged on the timescale of two decades, it is 86 times as powerful. In other words, we have, trapped in Arctic permafrost, twice as much carbon as is currently wrecking the atmosphere of the planet, all of it scheduled to be released at a date that keeps getting moved up, partially in the form of a gas that multiplies its warming power 86 times over.

Maybe you know that already — there are alarming stories in the news every day, like those, last month, that seemed to suggest satellite data showed the globe warming since 1998 more than twice as fast as scientists had thought (in fact, the underlying story was considerably less alarming than the headlines). Or the news from Antarctica this past May, when a crack in an ice shelf grew 11 miles in six days, then kept going; the break now has just three miles to go — by the time you read this, it may already have met the open water, where it will drop into the sea one of the biggest icebergs ever, a process known poetically as “calving.”


Watch: How Climate Change Is Creating More Powerful Hurricanes

But no matter how well-informed you are, you are surely not alarmed enough. Over the past decades, our culture has gone apocalyptic with zombie movies and Mad Max dystopias, perhaps the collective result of displaced climate anxiety, and yet when it comes to contemplating real-world warming dangers, we suffer from an incredible failure of imagination. The reasons for that are many: the timid language of scientific probabilities, which the climatologist James Hansen once called “scientific reticence” in a paper chastising scientists for editing their own observations so conscientiously that they failed to communicate how dire the threat really was; the fact that the country is dominated by a group of technocrats who believe any problem can be solved and an opposing culture that doesn’t even see warming as a problem worth addressing; the way that climate denialism has made scientists even more cautious in offering speculative warnings; the simple speed of change and, also, its slowness, such that we are only seeing effects now of warming from decades past; our uncertainty about uncertainty, which the climate writer Naomi Oreskes in particular has suggested stops us from preparing as though anything worse than a median outcome were even possible; the way we assume climate change will hit hardest elsewhere, not everywhere; the smallness (two degrees) and largeness (1.8 trillion tons) and abstractness (400 parts per million) of the numbers; the discomfort of considering a problem that is very difficult, if not impossible, to solve; the altogether incomprehensible scale of that problem, which amounts to the prospect of our own annihilation; simple fear. But aversion arising from fear is a form of denial, too.

In between scientific reticence and science fiction is science itself. This article is the result of dozens of interviews and exchanges with climatologists and researchers in related fields and reflects hundreds of scientific papers on the subject of climate change. What follows is not a series of predictions of what will happen — that will be determined in large part by the much-less-certain science of human response. Instead, it is a portrait of our best understanding of where the planet is heading absent aggressive action. It is unlikely that all of these warming scenarios will be fully realized, largely because the devastation along the way will shake our complacency. But those scenarios, and not the present climate, are the baseline. In fact, they are our schedule.

The present tense of climate change — the destruction we’ve already baked into our future — is horrifying enough. Most people talk as if Miami and Bangladesh still have a chance of surviving; most of the scientists I spoke with assume we’ll lose them within the century, even if we stop burning fossil fuel in the next decade. Two degrees of warming used to be considered the threshold of catastrophe: tens of millions of climate refugees unleashed upon an unprepared world. Now two degrees is our goal, per the Paris climate accords, and experts give us only slim odds of hitting it. The U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change issues serial reports, often called the “gold standard” of climate research; the most recent one projects us to hit four degrees of warming by the beginning of the next century, should we stay the present course. But that’s just a median projection. The upper end of the probability curve runs as high as eight degrees — and the authors still haven’t figured out how to deal with that permafrost melt. The IPCC reports also don’t fully account for the albedo effect (less ice means less reflected and more absorbed sunlight, hence more warming); more cloud cover (which traps heat); or the dieback of forests and other flora (which extract carbon from the atmosphere). Each of these promises to accelerate warming, and the history of the planet shows that temperature can shift as much as five degrees Celsius within thirteen years. The last time the planet was even four degrees warmer, Peter Brannen points out in The Ends of the World, his new history of the planet’s major extinction events, the oceans were hundreds of feet higher.*

The Earth has experienced five mass extinctions before the one we are living through now, each so complete a slate-wiping of the evolutionary record it functioned as a resetting of the planetary clock, and many climate scientists will tell you they are the best analog for the ecological future we are diving headlong into. Unless you are a teenager, you probably read in your high-school textbooks that these extinctions were the result of asteroids. In fact, all but the one that killed the dinosaurs were caused by climate change produced by greenhouse gas. The most notorious was 252 million years ago; it began when carbon warmed the planet by five degrees, accelerated when that warming triggered the release of methane in the Arctic, and ended with 97 percent of all life on Earth dead. We are currently adding carbon to the atmosphere at a considerably faster rate; by most estimates, at least ten times faster. The rate is accelerating. This is what Stephen Hawking had in mind when he said, this spring, that the species needs to colonize other planets in the next century to survive, and what drove Elon Musk, last month, to unveil his plans to build a Mars habitat in 40 to 100 years. These are nonspecialists, of course, and probably as inclined to irrational panic as you or I. But the many sober-minded scientists I interviewed over the past several months — the most credentialed and tenured in the field, few of them inclined to alarmism and many advisers to the IPCC who nevertheless criticize its conservatism — have quietly reached an apocalyptic conclusion, too: No plausible program of emissions reductions alone can prevent climate disaster.

Over the past few decades, the term “Anthropocene” has climbed out of academic discourse and into the popular imagination — a name given to the geologic era we live in now, and a way to signal that it is a new era, defined on the wall chart of deep history by human intervention. One problem with the term is that it implies a conquest of nature (and even echoes the biblical “dominion”). And however sanguine you might be about the proposition that we have already ravaged the natural world, which we surely have, it is another thing entirely to consider the possibility that we have only provoked it, engineering first in ignorance and then in denial a climate system that will now go to war with us for many centuries, perhaps until it destroys us. That is what Wallace Smith Broecker, the avuncular oceanographer who coined the term “global warming,” means when he calls the planet an “angry beast.” You could also go with “war machine.” Each day we arm it more.

II. Heat Death

Humans, like all mammals, are heat engines; surviving means having to continually cool off, like panting dogs. For that, the temperature needs to be low enough for the air to act as a kind of refrigerant, drawing heat off the skin so the engine can keep pumping. At seven degrees of warming, that would become impossible for large portions of the planet’s equatorial band, and especially the tropics, where humidity adds to the problem; in the jungles of Costa Rica, for instance, where humidity routinely tops 90 percent, simply moving around outside when it’s over 105 degrees Fahrenheit would be lethal. And the effect would be fast: Within a few hours, a human body would be cooked to death from both inside and out.

Climate-change skeptics point out that the planet has warmed and cooled many times before, but the climate window that has allowed for human life is very narrow, even by the standards of planetary history. At 11 or 12 degrees of warming, more than half the world’s population, as distributed today, would die of direct heat. Things almost certainly won’t get that hot this century, though models of unabated emissions do bring us that far eventually. This century, and especially in the tropics, the pain points will pinch much more quickly even than an increase of seven degrees. The key factor is something called wet-bulb temperature, which is a term of measurement as home-laboratory-kit as it sounds: the heat registered on a thermometer wrapped in a damp sock as it’s swung around in the air (since the moisture evaporates from a sock more quickly in dry air, this single number reflects both heat and humidity). At present, most regions reach a wet-bulb maximum of 26 or 27 degrees Celsius; the true red line for habitability is 35 degrees. What is called heat stress comes much sooner.

Actually, we’re about there already. Since 1980, the planet has experienced a 50-fold increase in the number of places experiencing dangerous or extreme heat; a bigger increase is to come. The five warmest summers in Europe since 1500 have all occurred since 2002, and soon, the IPCC warns, simply being outdoors that time of year will be unhealthy for much of the globe. Even if we meet the Paris goals of two degrees warming, cities like Karachi and Kolkata will become close to uninhabitable, annually encountering deadly heat waves like those that crippled them in 2015. At four degrees, the deadly European heat wave of 2003, which killed as many as 2,000 people a day, will be a normal summer. At six, according to an assessment focused only on effects within the U.S. from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, summer labor of any kind would become impossible in the lower Mississippi Valley, and everybody in the country east of the Rockies would be under more heat stress than anyone, anywhere, in the world today. As Joseph Romm has put it in his authoritative primer Climate Change: What Everyone Needs to Know, heat stress in New York City would exceed that of present-day Bahrain, one of the planet’s hottest spots, and the temperature in Bahrain “would induce hyperthermia in even sleeping humans.” The high-end IPCC estimate, remember, is two degrees warmer still. By the end of the century, the World Bank has estimated, the coolest months in tropical South America, Africa, and the Pacific are likely to be warmer than the warmest months at the end of the 20th century. Air-conditioning can help but will ultimately only add to the carbon problem; plus, the climate-controlled malls of the Arab emirates aside, it is not remotely plausible to wholesale air-condition all the hottest parts of the world, many of them also the poorest. And indeed, the crisis will be most dramatic across the Middle East and Persian Gulf, where in 2015 the heat index registered temperatures as high as 163 degrees Fahrenheit. As soon as several decades from now, the hajj will become physically impossible for the 2 million Muslims who make the pilgrimage each year.

It is not just the hajj, and it is not just Mecca; heat is already killing us. In the sugarcane region of El Salvador, as much as one-fifth of the population has chronic kidney disease, including over a quarter of the men, the presumed result of dehydration from working the fields they were able to comfortably harvest as recently as two decades ago. With dialysis, which is expensive, those with kidney failure can expect to live five years; without it, life expectancy is in the weeks. Of course, heat stress promises to pummel us in places other than our kidneys, too. As I type that sentence, in the California desert in mid-June, it is 121 degrees outside my door. It is not a record high.

III. The End of Food
Praying for cornfields in the tundra.

Climates differ and plants vary, but the basic rule for staple cereal crops grown at optimal temperature is that for every degree of warming, yields decline by 10 percent. Some estimates run as high as 15 or even 17 percent. Which means that if the planet is five degrees warmer at the end of the century, we may have as many as 50 percent more people to feed and 50 percent less grain to give them. And proteins are worse: It takes 16 calories of grain to produce just a single calorie of hamburger meat, butchered from a cow that spent its life polluting the climate with methane farts.

Pollyannaish plant physiologists will point out that the cereal-crop math applies only to those regions already at peak growing temperature, and they are right — theoretically, a warmer climate will make it easier to grow corn in Greenland. But as the pathbreaking work by Rosamond Naylor and David Battisti has shown, the tropics are already too hot to efficiently grow grain, and those places where grain is produced today are already at optimal growing temperature — which means even a small warming will push them down the slope of declining productivity. And you can’t easily move croplands north a few hundred miles, because yields in places like remote Canada and Russia are limited by the quality of soil there; it takes many centuries for the planet to produce optimally fertile dirt.

Drought might be an even bigger problem than heat, with some of the world’s most arable land turning quickly to desert. Precipitation is notoriously hard to model, yet predictions for later this century are basically unanimous: unprecedented droughts nearly everywhere food is today produced. By 2080, without dramatic reductions in emissions, southern Europe will be in permanent extreme drought, much worse than the American dust bowl ever was. The same will be true in Iraq and Syria and much of the rest of the Middle East; some of the most densely populated parts of Australia, Africa, and South America; and the breadbasket regions of China. None of these places, which today supply much of the world’s food, will be reliable sources of any. As for the original dust bowl: The droughts in the American plains and Southwest would not just be worse than in the 1930s, a 2015 NASA study predicted, but worse than any droughts in a thousand years — and that includes those that struck between 1100 and 1300, which “dried up all the rivers East of the Sierra Nevada mountains” and may have been responsible for the death of the Anasazi civilization.

Remember, we do not live in a world without hunger as it is. Far from it: Most estimates put the number of undernourished at 800 million globally. In case you haven’t heard, this spring has already brought an unprecedented quadruple famine to Africa and the Middle East; the U.N. has warned that separate starvation events in Somalia, South Sudan, Nigeria, and Yemen could kill 20 million this year alone.

IV. Climate Plagues
What happens when the bubonic ice melts?

Rock, in the right spot, is a record of planetary history, eras as long as millions of years flattened by the forces of geological time into strata with amplitudes of just inches, or just an inch, or even less. Ice works that way, too, as a climate ledger, but it is also frozen history, some of which can be reanimated when unfrozen. There are now, trapped in Arctic ice, diseases that have not circulated in the air for millions of years — in some cases, since before humans were around to encounter them. Which means our immune systems would have no idea how to fight back when those prehistoric plagues emerge from the ice.

The Arctic also stores terrifying bugs from more recent times. In Alaska, already, researchers have discovered remnants of the 1918 flu that infected as many as 500 million and killed as many as 100 million — about 5 percent of the world’s population and almost six times as many as had died in the world war for which the pandemic served as a kind of gruesome capstone. As the BBC reported in May, scientists suspect smallpox and the bubonic plague are trapped in Siberian ice, too — an abridged history of devastating human sickness, left out like egg salad in the Arctic sun.

Experts caution that many of these organisms won’t actually survive the thaw and point to the fastidious lab conditions under which they have already reanimated several of them — the 32,000-year-old “extremophile” bacteria revived in 2005, an 8 million-year-old bug brought back to life in 2007, the 3.5 million–year–old one a Russian scientist self-injected just out of curiosity — to suggest that those are necessary conditions for the return of such ancient plagues. But already last year, a boy was killed and 20 others infected by anthrax released when retreating permafrost exposed the frozen carcass of a reindeer killed by the bacteria at least 75 years earlier; 2,000 present-day reindeer were infected, too, carrying and spreading the disease beyond the tundra.

What concerns epidemiologists more than ancient diseases are existing scourges relocated, rewired, or even re-evolved by warming. The first effect is geographical. Before the early-modern period, when adventuring sailboats accelerated the mixing of peoples and their bugs, human provinciality was a guard against pandemic. Today, even with globalization and the enormous intermingling of human populations, our ecosystems are mostly stable, and this functions as another limit, but global warming will scramble those ecosystems and help disease trespass those limits as surely as Cortés did. You don’t worry much about dengue or malaria if you are living in Maine or France. But as the tropics creep northward and mosquitoes migrate with them, you will. You didn’t much worry about Zika a couple of years ago, either.

As it happens, Zika may also be a good model of the second worrying effect — disease mutation. One reason you hadn’t heard about Zika until recently is that it had been trapped in Uganda; another is that it did not, until recently, appear to cause birth defects. Scientists still don’t entirely understand what happened, or what they missed. But there are things we do know for sure about how climate affects some diseases: Malaria, for instance, thrives in hotter regions not just because the mosquitoes that carry it do, too, but because for every degree increase in temperature, the parasite reproduces ten times faster. Which is one reason that the World Bank estimates that by 2050, 5.2 billion people will be reckoning with it.

V. Unbreathable Air
A rolling death smog that suffocates millions.

Our lungs need oxygen, but that is only a fraction of what we breathe. The fraction of carbon dioxide is growing: It just crossed 400 parts per million, and high-end estimates extrapolating from current trends suggest it will hit 1,000 ppm by 2100. At that concentration, compared to the air we breathe now, human cognitive ability declines by 21 percent.

Other stuff in the hotter air is even scarier, with small increases in pollution capable of shortening life spans by ten years. The warmer the planet gets, the more ozone forms, and by mid-century, Americans will likely suffer a 70 percent increase in unhealthy ozone smog, the National Center for Atmospheric Research has projected. By 2090, as many as 2 billion people globally will be breathing air above the WHO “safe” level; one paper last month showed that, among other effects, a pregnant mother’s exposure to ozone raises the child’s risk of autism (as much as tenfold, combined with other environmental factors). Which does make you think again about the autism epidemic in West Hollywood.

Already, more than 10,000 people die each day from the small particles emitted from fossil-fuel burning; each year, 339,000 people die from wildfire smoke, in part because climate change has extended forest-fire season (in the U.S., it’s increased by 78 days since 1970). By 2050, according to the U.S. Forest Service, wildfires will be twice as destructive as they are today; in some places, the area burned could grow fivefold. What worries people even more is the effect that would have on emissions, especially when the fires ravage forests arising out of peat. Peatland fires in Indonesia in 1997, for instance, added to the global CO2 release by up to 40 percent, and more burning only means more warming only means more burning. There is also the terrifying possibility that rain forests like the Amazon, which in 2010 suffered its second “hundred-year drought” in the space of five years, could dry out enough to become vulnerable to these kinds of devastating, rolling forest fires — which would not only expel enormous amounts of carbon into the atmosphere but also shrink the size of the forest. That is especially bad because the Amazon alone provides 20 percent of our oxygen.

Then there are the more familiar forms of pollution. In 2013, melting Arctic ice remodeled Asian weather patterns, depriving industrial China of the natural ventilation systems it had come to depend on, which blanketed much of the country’s north in an unbreathable smog. Literally unbreathable. A metric called the Air Quality Index categorizes the risks and tops out at the 301-to-500 range, warning of “serious aggravation of heart or lung disease and premature mortality in persons with cardiopulmonary disease and the elderly” and, for all others, “serious risk of respiratory effects”; at that level, “everyone should avoid all outdoor exertion.” The Chinese “airpocalypse” of 2013 peaked at what would have been an Air Quality Index of over 800. That year, smog was responsible for a third of all deaths in the country.

VI. Perpetual War
The violence baked into heat.

Climatologists are very careful when talking about Syria. They want you to know that while climate change did produce a drought that contributed to civil war, it is not exactly fair to saythat the conflict is the result of warming; next door, for instance, Lebanon suffered the same crop failures. But researchers like Marshall Burke and Solomon Hsiang have managed to quantify some of the non-obvious relationships between temperature and violence: For every half-degree of warming, they say, societies will see between a 10 and 20 percent increase in the likelihood of armed conflict. In climate science, nothing is simple, but the arithmetic is harrowing: A planet five degrees warmer would have at least half again as many wars as we do today. Overall, social conflict could more than double this century.

This is one reason that, as nearly every climate scientist I spoke to pointed out, the U.S. military is obsessed with climate change: The drowning of all American Navy bases by sea-level rise is trouble enough, but being the world’s policeman is quite a bit harder when the crime rate doubles. Of course, it’s not just Syria where climate has contributed to conflict. Some speculate that the elevated level of strife across the Middle East over the past generation reflects the pressures of global warming — a hypothesis all the more cruel considering that warming began accelerating when the industrialized world extracted and then burned the region’s oil.

What accounts for the relationship between climate and conflict? Some of it comes down to agriculture and economics; a lot has to do with forced migration, already at a record high, with at least 65 million displaced people wandering the planet right now. But there is also the simple fact of individual irritability. Heat increases municipal crime rates, and swearing on social media, and the likelihood that a major-league pitcher, coming to the mound after his teammate has been hit by a pitch, will hit an opposing batter in retaliation. And the arrival of air-conditioning in the developed world, in the middle of the past century, did little to solve the problem of the summer crime wave.

VII. Permanent Economic Collapse
Dismal capitalism in a half-poorer world.

The murmuring mantra of global neoliberalism, which prevailed between the end of the Cold War and the onset of the Great Recession, is that economic growth would save us from anything and everything.
But in the aftermath of the 2008 crash, a growing number of historians studying what they call “fossil capitalism” have begun to suggest that the entire history of swift economic growth, which began somewhat suddenly in the 18th century, is not the result of innovation or trade or the dynamics of global capitalism but simply our discovery of fossil fuels and all their raw power — a onetime injection of new “value” into a system that had previously been characterized by global subsistence living. Before fossil fuels, nobody lived better than their parents or grandparents or ancestors from 500 years before, except in the immediate aftermath of a great plague like the Black Death, which allowed the lucky survivors to gobble up the resources liberated by mass graves. After we’ve burned all the fossil fuels, these scholars suggest, perhaps we will return to a “steady state” global economy. Of course, that onetime injection has a devastating long-term cost: climate change.

The most exciting research on the economics of warming has also come from Hsiang and his colleagues, who are not historians of fossil capitalism but who offer some very bleak analysis of their own: Every degree Celsius of warming costs, on average, 1.2 percent of GDP (an enormous number, considering we count growth in the low single digits as “strong”). This is the sterling work in the field, and their median projection is for a 23 percent loss in per capita earning globally by the end of this century (resulting from changes in agriculture, crime, storms, energy, mortality, and labor).
Tracing the shape of the probability curve is even scarier: There is a 12 percent chance that climate change will reduce global output by more than 50 percent by 2100, they say, and a 51 percent chance that it lowers per capita GDP by 20 percent or more by then, unless emissions decline. By comparison, the Great Recession lowered global GDP by about 6 percent, in a onetime shock; Hsiang and his colleagues estimate a one-in-eight chance of an ongoing and irreversible effect by the end of the century that is eight times worse.

The scale of that economic devastation is hard to comprehend, but you can start by imagining what the world would look like today with an economy half as big, which would produce only half as much value, generating only half as much to offer the workers of the world. It makes the grounding of flights out of heat-stricken Phoenix last month seem like pathetically small economic potatoes. And, among other things, it makes the idea of postponing government action on reducing emissions and relying solely on growth and technology to solve the problem an absurd business calculation.
Every round-trip ticket on flights from New York to London, keep in mind, costs the Arctic three more square meters of ice.

VIII. Poisoned Oceans
Sulfide burps off the skeleton coast.

That the sea will become a killer is a given. Barring a radical reduction of emissions, we will see at least four feet of sea-level rise and possibly ten by the end of the century. A third of the world’s major cities are on the coast, not to mention its power plants, ports, navy bases, farmlands, fisheries, river deltas, marshlands, and rice-paddy empires, and even those above ten feet will flood much more easily, and much more regularly, if the water gets that high. At least 600 million people live within ten meters of sea level today.

But the drowning of those homelands is just the start. At present, more than a third of the world’s carbon is sucked up by the oceans — thank God, or else we’d have that much more warming already. But the result is what’s called “ocean acidification,” which, on its own, may add a half a degree to warming this century. It is also already burning through the planet’s water basins — you may remember these as the place where life arose in the first place. You have probably heard of “coral bleaching” — that is, coral dying — which is very bad news, because reefs support as much as a quarter of all marine life and supply food for half a billion people. Ocean acidification will fry fish populations directly, too, though scientists aren’t yet sure how to predict the effects on the stuff we haul out of the ocean to eat; they do know that in acid waters, oysters and mussels will struggle to grow their shells, and that when the pH of human blood drops as much as the oceans’ pH has over the past generation, it induces seizures, comas, and sudden death.

That isn’t all that ocean acidification can do. Carbon absorption can initiate a feedback loop in which underoxygenated waters breed different kinds of microbes that turn the water still more “anoxic,” first in deep ocean “dead zones,” then gradually up toward the surface. There, the small fish die out, unable to breathe, which means oxygen-eating bacteria thrive, and the feedback loop doubles back. This process, in which dead zones grow like cancers, choking off marine life and wiping out fisheries, is already quite advanced in parts of the Gulf of Mexico and just off Namibia, where hydrogen sulfide is bubbling out of the sea along a thousand-mile stretch of land known as the “Skeleton Coast.” The name originally referred to the detritus of the whaling industry, but today it’s more apt than ever. Hydrogen sulfide is so toxic that evolution has trained us to recognize the tiniest, safest traces of it, which is why our noses are so exquisitely skilled at registering flatulence. Hydrogen sulfide is also the thing that finally did us in that time 97 percent of all life on Earth died, once all the feedback loops had been triggered and the circulating jet streams of a warmed ocean ground to a halt — it’s the planet’s preferred gas for a natural holocaust. Gradually, the ocean’s dead zones spread, killing off marine species that had dominated the oceans for hundreds of millions of years, and the gas the inert waters gave off into the atmosphere poisoned everything on land. Plants, too. It was millions of years before the oceans recovered.

IX. The Great Filter
Our present eeriness cannot last.

So why can’t we see it? In his recent book-length essay The Great Derangement, the Indian novelist Amitav Ghosh wonders why global warming and natural disaster haven’t become major subjects of contemporary fiction — why we don’t seem able to imagine climate catastrophe, and why we haven’t yet had a spate of novels in the genre he basically imagines into half-existence and names “the environmental uncanny.” “Consider, for example, the stories that congeal around questions like, ‘Where were you when the Berlin Wall fell?’ or ‘Where were you on 9/11?’ ” he writes. “Will it ever be possible to ask, in the same vein, ‘Where were you at 400 ppm?’ or ‘Where were you when the Larsen B ice shelf broke up?’ ” His answer: Probably not, because the dilemmas and dramas of climate change are simply incompatible with the kinds of stories we tell ourselves about ourselves, especially in novels, which tend to emphasize the journey of an individual conscience rather than the poisonous miasma of social fate.

Surely this blindness will not last — the world we are about to inhabit will not permit it. In a six-degree-warmer world, the Earth’s ecosystem will boil with so many natural disasters that we will just start calling them “weather”: a constant swarm of out-of-control typhoons and tornadoes and floods and droughts, the planet assaulted regularly with climate events that not so long ago destroyed whole civilizations. The strongest hurricanes will come more often, and we’ll have to invent new categories with which to describe them; tornadoes will grow longer and wider and strike much more frequently, and hail rocks will quadruple in size. Humans used to watch the weather to prophesy the future; going forward, we will see in its wrath the vengeance of the past. Early naturalists talked often about “deep time” — the perception they had, contemplating the grandeur of this valley or that rock basin, of the profound slowness of nature. What lies in store for us is more like what the Victorian anthropologists identified as “dreamtime,” or “everywhen”: the semi-mythical experience, described by Aboriginal Australians, of encountering, in the present moment, an out-of-time past, when ancestors, heroes, and demigods crowded an epic stage. You can find it already watching footage of an iceberg collapsing into the sea — a feeling of history happening all at once.

It is. Many people perceive climate change as a sort of moral and economic debt, accumulated since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution and now come due after several centuries — a helpful perspective, in a way, since it is the carbon-burning processes that began in 18th-century England that lit the fuse of everything that followed. But more than half of the carbon humanity has exhaled into the atmosphere in its entire history has been emitted in just the past three decades; since the end of World War II, the figure is 85 percent. Which means that, in the length of a single generation, global warming has brought us to the brink of planetary catastrophe, and that the story of the industrial world’s kamikaze mission is also the story of a single lifetime. My father’s, for instance: born in 1938, among his first memories the news of Pearl Harbor and the mythic Air Force of the propaganda films that followed, films that doubled as advertisements for imperial-American industrial might; and among his last memories the coverage of the desperate signing of the Paris climate accords on cable news, ten weeks before he died of lung cancer last July. Or my mother’s: born in 1945, to German Jews fleeing the smokestacks through which their relatives were incinerated, now enjoying her 72nd year in an American commodity paradise, a paradise supported by the supply chains of an industrialized developing world. She has been smoking for 57 of those years, unfiltered.

Or the scientists’. Some of the men who first identified a changing climate (and given the generation, those who became famous were men) are still alive; a few are even still working. Wally Broecker is 84 years old and drives to work at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory across the Hudson every day from the Upper West Side. Like most of those who first raised the alarm, he believes that no amount of emissions reduction alone can meaningfully help avoid disaster. Instead, he puts his faith in carbon capture — untested technology to extract carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, which Broecker estimates will cost at least several trillion dollars — and various forms of “geoengineering,” the catchall name for a variety of moon-shot technologies far-fetched enough that many climate scientists prefer to regard them as dreams, or nightmares, from science fiction. He is especially focused on what’s called the aerosol approach — dispersing so much sulfur dioxide into the atmosphere that when it converts to sulfuric acid, it will cloud a fifth of the horizon and reflect back 2 percent of the sun’s rays, buying the planet at least a little wiggle room, heat-wise. “Of course, that would make our sunsets very red, would bleach the sky, would make more acid rain,” he says. “But you have to look at the magnitude of the problem. You got to watch that you don’t say the giant problem shouldn’t be solved because the solution causes some smaller problems.” He won’t be around to see that, he told me. “But in your lifetime …”

Jim Hansen is another member of this godfather generation. Born in 1941, he became a climatologist at the University of Iowa, developed the groundbreaking “Zero Model” for projecting climate change, and later became the head of climate research at NASA, only to leave under pressure when, while still a federal employee, he filed a lawsuit against the federal government charging inaction on warming (along the way he got arrested a few times for protesting, too). The lawsuit, which is brought by a collective called Our Children’s Trust and is often described as “kids versus climate change,” is built on an appeal to the equal-protection clause, namely, that in failing to take action on warming, the government is violating it by imposing massive costs on future generations; it is scheduled to be heard this winter in Oregon district court. Hansen has recently given up on solving the climate problem with a carbon tax alone, which had been his preferred approach, and has set about calculating the total cost of the additional measure of extracting carbon from the atmosphere.

Climate Scientist James Hansen: ‘The Planet Could Become Ungovernable’
The 10-Book ‘Uninhabitable Earth’ Reading List
Hansen began his career studying Venus, which was once a very Earth-like planet with plenty of life-supporting water before runaway climate change rapidly transformed it into an arid and uninhabitable sphere enveloped in an unbreathable gas; he switched to studying our planet by 30, wondering why he should be squinting across the solar system to explore rapid environmental change when he could see it all around him on the planet he was standing on. “When we wrote our first paper on this, in 1981,” he told me, “I remember saying to one of my co-authors, ‘This is going to be very interesting. Sometime during our careers, we’re going to see these things beginning to happen.’ ”

Several of the scientists I spoke with proposed global warming as the solution to Fermi’s famous paradox, which asks, If the universe is so big, then why haven’t we encountered any other intelligent life in it? The answer, they suggested, is that the natural life span of a civilization may be only several thousand years, and the life span of an industrial civilization perhaps only several hundred. In a universe that is many billions of years old, with star systems separated as much by time as by space, civilizations might emerge and develop and burn themselves up simply too fast to ever find one another. Peter Ward, a charismatic paleontologist among those responsible for discovering that the planet’s mass extinctions were caused by greenhouse gas, calls this the “Great Filter”: “Civilizations rise, but there’s an environmental filter that causes them to die off again and disappear fairly quickly,” he told me. “If you look at planet Earth, the filtering we’ve had in the past has been in these mass extinctions.” The mass extinction we are now living through has only just begun; so much more dying is coming.

And yet, improbably, Ward is an optimist. So are Broecker and Hansen and many of the other scientists I spoke to. We have not developed much of a religion of meaning around climate change that might comfort us, or give us purpose, in the face of possible annihilation. But climate scientists have a strange kind of faith: We will find a way to forestall radical warming, they say, because we must.

It is not easy to know how much to be reassured by that bleak certainty, and how much to wonder whether it is another form of delusion; for global warming to work as parable, of course, someone needs to survive to tell the story. The scientists know that to even meet the Paris goals, by 2050, carbon emissions from energy and industry, which are still rising, will have to fall by half each decade; emissions from land use (deforestation, cow farts, etc.) will have to zero out; and we will need to have invented technologies to extract, annually, twice as much carbon from the atmosphere as the entire planet’s plants now do. Nevertheless, by and large, the scientists have an enormous confidence in the ingenuity of humans — a confidence perhaps bolstered by their appreciation for climate change, which is, after all, a human invention, too. They point to the Apollo project, the hole in the ozone we patched in the 1980s, the passing of the fear of mutually assured destruction. Now we’ve found a way to engineer our own doomsday, and surely we will find a way to engineer our way out of it, one way or another. The planet is not used to being provoked like this, and climate systems designed to give feedback over centuries or millennia prevent us — even those who may be watching closely — from fully imagining the damage done already to the planet. But when we do truly see the world we’ve made, they say, we will also find a way to make it livable. For them, the alternative is simply unimaginable.

          Photographer Penny Ashford Captures Locations Endangered by Climate Change      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Photographer Penny Ashford's show at Page Bond Gallery,"Vanishing Ice: From the Arctic to Antarctica," is a call to action.

The project started while she was working on a coffee table book about her passion, water, when Ashford was drawn to Antarctica for the majestic icebergs she'd read about. At the time, she had no real understanding of the climate change conversation, she says.

She followed that trip with one to the North Pole and unexpectedly found herself surrounded by melting ice. But it was the underweight polar bears that really opened her eyes to the impact modern life is having on the environment.

While in Svalbard, Norway, a few months ago to document more of the changes, Ashford was in shock over how much water compared to ice surrounded her. "Hence the name of this show," she explains. "I have to admit, I was so excited to go to Svalbard because I was told I would see amazing animals and ice forms and I came home very disappointed."

The large-format photographs detail the changing landscape, sometimes with recognizable forms and sometimes with abstract images. In "The Enormity, Antarctica 2018," the viewer is faced with the image of a tiny orange object — a dingy — dwarfed by a massive iceberg. "When you realize the size of the ice, it literally takes your breath way," she says.

Some of the photos are pure abstraction, an intentional choice for Ashford, who is passionate about all the different shapes that water and ice take on.

"It absolutely intrigues me because no two moments in time are ever the same. It's always changing," she says. "I think that's what I love the most. I look for shapes and patterns all the time, like the way the water ripples or the ice patterns develop."

One of the most striking images is "Midnight, 2018," mainly for the iceberg's unusually warm coloring. Ashford recalls it as an incredible moment. The group was preparing to go to bed around 11:30 p.m. when people looked outside to see a distinctive glow in the sky. It was during a period of 24 hours of light a day and the sun, very low in the sky, was throwing off a golden yellow cast on the icebergs to the right of the ship.

"The glow was so brilliant that the captain turned our ship, the National Geographic Explorer, to head directly into the side of the iceberg just so we could capture the full breadth of color," she recalls.

Shooting in such frigid locations takes its toll on camera equipment. Ashford uses a Nikon D-810 and also the DJI Phantom 4 drone, which she admits is hard to use because of the cold weather. "It sometimes takes on a life of its own and flies where it wants to," she says. "Including into the ocean."

While in Svalbard, Ashford wanted to see the Seed Vault, which is a depository for the world's seeds, but was unable to because the permafrost the vault was built on had begun to melt and water was seeping into the vault so it had to be shut down.

"It's just another sign of the problems in our midst," she says. "These three journeys have inspired me to find other endangered locations to photograph in the hopes of bringing about more conversation and hopefully some modification of our behavior." S

           Europe's smaller ports provide less fuss and muss for harried shippers      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Because 2M and Ocean Alliance ships are calling at Europe's smaller ports, shippers are not restricted to their giant rivals of Le Havre, Rotterdam, Antwerp and Hamburg where there are more problems.Thus, Wilhelmshaven, Gdansk and Barcelona and others continue to be busy because European shippers don't care which port handles their goods as long as it gets the job done efficiently, reports IHS media.Big port operators work deals with ocean carriers, while smaller firms rely on freight forwarders to find them the cheapest door-to-door freight - and often small is beautiful.The 24 per cent increase in traffic at the DCT Gdansk terminal to just short of 1.6 million TEU in 2017 was also due to the 2M and Ocean Alliance adding direct calls.Ten years ago the Polish terminal handled just 4,423 TEU. Further, a 32.3 per cent surge at Barcelona to 2.97 million TEU last year made it Europe's fastest growing port largely due to MSC, Maersk's 2M partner having five services call.Shippers stick with big ports as long as they don't have problems - such as barge and feeder congestion at Antwerp and Rotterdam and Hamburg.There have also been terminal acquisitions in smaller ports in recent months indicating a small-port trend, if they can lure shippers with cheaper costs, faster inland transits, and greater schedule reliability than major hubs.Cosco's CSP Zeebrugge Terminal, with volume down by a third in June year on year may have induced Cosco to sell a third of it, but CMA CGM Terminals was quick to snap it up. The French shipping giant already accounts for one third of Zeebrugge throughput.The Mediterranean transshipment market has lost momentum, after carrier alliances changed their networks and upped the number of direct port-to-port calls, said IHS media.Marsaxlokk, the Malta transhipment hub, registered just a 2.1 per cent volume increase in 2017 to 3.15 million TEU and volume at Gioia Tauro, the southern Italian terminal, tumbled 12.4 per cent 2.45 million TEU.The latter faces tougher competition from North African ports and Marsaxlokk and Piraeus. Traffic is down by almost one million TEU from 10 years ago and a further decline seems inevitable.Mediterranean ports face even tougher times ahead. A slow decline in transshipment - which currently accounts for more than one in four containers handled at ports around the world - appears to be underway, according to Drewry Shipping Consultants analyst Neil Davidson.But Yilport has a successful history of growing volume in smaller ports and is just three slots short of meeting its ambition of making it into the top 10 global terminal container league by 2025.It attributed the 9.5 per cent increase in 2017 volume to 4.3 million TEU to growth in Turkey and its three Nordic terminals - two in Sweden and one in Norway - which boosted traffic by 14 per cent.Yilport, which has a 24 per cent stake in French ocean carrier CMA CGM, is boosting its Nordic business, striking an agreement last year with the western Swedish port of Gavle to build a new container terminal that will boost annual capacity to 600,000 TEU when it opens in the fourth quarter of 2020.

          Latest Releases from Vocalist Sofia Jernberg      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
By Eyal Hareuveni

Swedish, Ethiopian-born, Oslo-based vocal artist Sofia Jernberg needs no introduction. She calls herself a “maker of things” and she keeps doing a lot of beautiful things with Mats Gustafsson’s Fire! Orchestra, and countless free-improvisations meetings. She also did many interesting things with the Swedish-American Seval, with cellist Fred Lonberg-Holm, and the Swedish-Norwegian-French quartet The New Songs. Jernberg continues to make exciting things with Gustafsson’s new group The End, and with the Norwegian experimental Lana Trio.

The End - Svårmod Och Vemod Är Värdesinnen (Rare Noise, 2018) *****


Take two of the wildest baritone sax heavyweights on our planet - Swedish Mats Gustafsson and Norwegian Kjetil Møster (whose resume spans from modern jazz groups as The Core and Trinity, through punk-jazz Ultralyd and Møster! to glam-rockers King Midas and Datarock); add the adventurous, avant-rocker, Deerhoof’s powerhouse drummer Greg Saunier (who enjoys improvising with guitarist Mary Halvorson and trumpeter Stephanie Richards) and throw into the mix Norwegian avant-noise-metal guitarist Anders Hana (from local groups MoHa!, Ultralyd and, Noxagt), who returned to musical activity after a seven-year sabbatical, and you already have enough ingredients for a super-exciting group, one that can reach apocalyptic climaxes in an instant. Still, the secret ingredient of this new group is Jernberg. Her strong presence seals the masculine maelstroms of fiery jazz, art rock, noise and poetic texts with a much needed feminine quality and emotional authority.

This potent dream team recorded its debut album, Svårmod Och Vemod Är Värdesinnen (in Swedish: dark melancholy and sadness are senses to be valued. This gory, suggestive titled is emphasized with the cover art by Edward Jarvis) in January 2018 in Bergen, Norway, after only three performances. Needless to say, the joint forces of Gustafsson and Møster with the baritone guitar of Hana and the propulsive drumming of Saunier promise raw, low-end onslaughts and boundless energy. Jernberg’s delivery - at times capricious, freewheeling wailing and on other times her one-of-a-kind singing-whispering-reciting charge the explosive mix with an urgent, even rebellious message of The End.

The album opens with two short pieces by Gustafsson and Hana. “Svårmod” offers everything you can expect from such group. Hana’s distorted-dirty, chainsaw guitar is in the center, embraced by the intense, baritone attacks of Gustafsson and Møster and the manic drumming of Saunier, while Jernberg screaming over this primordial lava. “Vemod” revolves around Hana’s hypnotic riff, that sound like a twisting West-African rhythmic rhythmic pattern with something catchy from the Captain Beefheart songbook, but already brings Jernberg wordless wailing to the center.

The End’s epic 14-minute “Translated Slaughter” is a completely different story. Jernberg acts, sighs, whispers and chants Gustafsson’s tortured-claustrophobic, stream-of-consciousness lyrics while Gustafsson and Møster are busy adding noisy, disturbing electronics. Hana deepens the dark atmosphere with assorted effects and Saunier keeps shaking this swampy ground with sudden attacks. Eventually, this pieces closes with a cathartic crescendo. Gustafsson’s “Don’t Wait” has a clearer - obvious - message (“...curiosity is the key, sharing is the key, don’t believe fuckin’ nothin’...”), and a familiar rhythmic structure, bringing to mind The Thing collaboration with vocalist Neneh Cherry (The Cherry Thing, Smalltown Supersound, 2012). The Jernberg thing offers her reciting-chanting the intuitive lyrics as half beat poet-half charismatic shaman, flirting majestically with the addictive, polyrhythmic pulse.

Møster’s brief interlude “Rich and Poor” serves as an introduction to his song “Both Sides Out”, a kind of requiem to post-Trump America that can be experienced psychoanalytic attempt to release the many demons from this tyrant’s deranged psyche. Jernberg continues to perform her shamanic duties, this time as an equal partner of The End’s brutal and terrifying cleansing ritual.

Only 44 minutes long but, no doubt, the best ones that you will spend in 2018.

Lana Trio with Sofia Jernberg (Clean Feed, 2018) ****

The experimental Norwegian Lana Trio - trombonist Henrik Munkeby Nørstebø, pianist Kjetil Jerve, and drummer Andreas Wildhagen, was formed in 2007. The trio managed to solidify in its first two albums a delicate balance between its intense, powerful interplay, an uncompromising search for new sounds and dynamics and a strong affinity for open-ended, non-idiomatic improvisations. Jernberg joined the trio for its third album, recorded on March 2016 in Halden, Norway, and performs now again with the trio after the release of the album.

Jernberg sounds as if she has been free-improvising with Lana Trio for ages. She fits organically in the wild yet loose chaos that Lana Trio keeps producing. But her operatic-eccentric delivery charges the focused interplay of the trio with an engaging, emotional depth/ Jernberg vocalizes wordless, seductive suggestions and uses her voice as an intriguing, subversive instrument.

Jernberg connection with Munkeby Nørstebø - who works with another experimental vocal artist, Audrey Chen, in the Beam Splitter - is almost telepathic. Both sound as have perfected their own imaginative, cryptic language. Wildhagen embraces these secretive talks with sudden, rhythmic eruptions while Jerve frames all with minimalist, percussive piano playing.

Each of the four free-improvised pieces focuses on a distinct strategy. The first one, “Ears Anciens”, is restless and urgent; the second, “Omnivore's Aperitif”, is enigmatic, sparse and surprisingly quiet; the third, “Ghost Training”, explodes with fiery flow of volcanic energy ; the fourth, “Solitude Chant”, concludes this wild ride with a mysterious, tempting ritual.

That’s your mistake, then. Eve did not offer hassle free shipping. The exact wording was that they were offering “hustle free” shipping.

Here is a copy and paste from my Backer Kit receipt:

Hustle Free International Delivery. Import duties and customs handed by Eve (For Canada, Japan, Australia, Norway and Switzerland ONLY) - Canada

I don’t know about you, but I took this to mean that there would be no “hustle” to the manufacturing and delivery of my Eve V, and that it would get to its final destination when it darn well felt like it, thank you very much.

There was absolutely no undertaking here that any of this would be “hassle” free.

On the other hand, Eve co-founder Mike says they don’t make any promises, only estimates. So it’s hard to say if this was a promise of “hustle free” shipment or just an estimate.

Columpios Instagram

Lo hemos visto un montón de veces en Instagram. Un atardecer, un mar infinito, una pose cuidada... y un columpio. Los likes llueven sobre la foto porque, para qué engañarnos, a todos nos encantaría subirnos a esa tabla de madera y sentir por un momento que volamos. Muchas veces nos hemos preguntado donde se encuentran esos columpios tan estilosos, así que nos hemos puesto manos a la obra a localizarlos... ¡y aquí los tenéis!

Algunos están muy lejos y solo podremos llegar a ellos si somos de los afortunados que harán un largo viaje este verano, pero otros los tenemos casi casi a tiro de piedra. Os invitamos a descubrirlos y, con un poco de suerte, a haceros la fotaza más impresionante de este verano en Instagram.

Los de la isla de Lombok, en Bali (Indonesia)

Quizá el columpio más famoso del momento (y sin duda el que mejores fotos del atardecer nos puede regalar). Lo mejor es que no es solo uno, sino varios columpios, ubicados en la pequeña isla de Lombok, en diferentes hoteles (como The Exile u Ombak Sunset). Y parecen competir entre ellos por regalarnos las fotos más espectaculares:

Gili, you stole my heart This place has the most amazing people, everyones a fan of Sharukh Khan (Bollywood actor), the only mode of transportation is horse carts or bicycles Since theres no other mode of transport, the only kind of pollution is lots of horse and cow poop on the streets which honestly stops bothering you after the first day One of the most amazing sunsets Ive ever seen Take 5 footsteps or 100 (literally) and the water still never crosses your knees The marine life here is exotic, saw a lot of fishies but unfortunately couldnt spot a turtle which only means I have a strong reason to come back to this gorgeous place See you soon Gili, thanks for all the memories . . . . #gili #giliislands #gilitrawangan #summer2018 #vacay #holiday #holidaymode #vacay2018 #beachfun #swing #beachswing #sunset #indonesia #beachswing #waterswing #ck #calvinklein #calvinkleinbikini #calvinkleinswimwear #escape #blogger #travelblogger #indianblogger #dancingdaiquiri #kingsoftravel_ #igsunsets #instasunset #love #heart #clearwater #clearwaterbeach

Y el del interior de la isla, naturaleza en estado puro

Si alguna vez hemos visto a una instagrammer volar entre una profusión de vegetación incomparable, probablemente ya conozcamos los Bali Swings, un complejo inaugurado en 2017 a 13 kilómetros de Ubud, creado con la intención de que quien los disfrute (por unos 22 euros de entrada) tenga la sensación de volar sobre las selvas tropicales del país.

El que sobrevuela las calles de San Francisco...

San Francisco es una de las ciudades más bonitas del mundo, y la oportunidad de ver sus calles, sus cuestas y sus tranvías desde las alturas montados en un columpio es algo que nadie debería perderse. El lugar favorito para hacerlo es el columpio de Billy Goat Hill Park, pero ¡cuidado! Los vecinos están en pie de guerra contra la avalancha de instagrammers y de vez en cuando cortan por lo sano las cuerdas del columpio (aunque pronto aparece alguien para reponerlo).

... y el que ofrece las mejores vistas de su bahía

Y si el de Billy Goat Hill Park es el columpio más popular para disfrutar de las vistas urbanas de San Francisco, el de la playa de Kirby Cove es perfecto para perdernos en la preciosa bahía de la ciudad, con las olas del Pacífico a nuestros pies y el Golden Gate de fondo para dejar impresionados a todos nuestros seguidores.

Los de la isla de Zaya Nurai, en Abu Dhabi

En los Emiratos Árabes Unidos, más en concreto en Abu Dhabi, podemos encontrar la isla privada de Zaya Nurai, a la que se puede acceder alojándose en el hotel que se asienta en ella o comprando un pase de un día, sin necesidad de pernoctar. Una vez en la isla, podremos disfrutar de dos columpios gemelos (con hamaca incluida), perfectos para fotos en pareja o con amigas.

El de la isla de Santa Lucía, en pleno Caribe

Olvidad esos columpios cuyo encanto consiste en estar formados solo por una tabla y un par de cuerdas. También existen los de lujo, como los que se encuentran en el Ladera Resort de la isla caribeña de Santa Lucía. Sobrevolando las piscinas privadas de las habitaciones, los hay individuales y dobles, pero todos ellos cuentan con unas vistas que quitan el aliento a las conocidas montañas gemelas de la isla, las Pitons.

El de Lazy Beach, en Camboya

El sudeste asiático parece tener algo especial que atrae a los amantes de las fotos en columpios. Quizá sean sus vistas espectaculares, su naturaleza en estado puro o esos atardeceres que allí parecen diferentes al resto del mundo. Es el caso de Lazy Beach, una playa situada en Koh Rong Saloem, una isla privada de la costa de Sihanoukville, en Camboya, que, increíblemente, aún no ha caído presa del turismo de masas y es un lugar de lo más relajante.

El de Hjørundfjord, en Noruega

Pero no todo tiene que ser sol y calor cuando nos subimos a un columpio. El de Hjørundfjord se encuentra en la costa noruega y solo se puede llegar a él de dos maneras: tras un trayecto en un ferry de horarios variables y difíciles de conocer o tras subir (con mucho esfuerzo) la montaña en la que se encuentra. Las vistas del fiordo y los glaciares que lo rodean harán que, sin duda, merezca la pena.

El del Fin del Mundo, en Ecuador

Su nombre lo dice todo y es el atractivo que lleva hasta allí año tras año a viajeros ávidos de aventuras. Y «allí» es la Casa del Árbol de la que cuelga este espectacular columpio, que no tiene más parafernalia que una tabla de madera y dos cuerdas (esperemos que bien ancladas). En lo alto de una montaña de difícil acceso (solo se puede llegar tras subir durante tres horas o en un autobús con tres trayectos diarios), todo esfuerzo queda recompensado con las espectaculares vistas de la montaña y, en días claros, del volcán Tungurahua.

El de Exuma, en las Bahamas

Y de Ecuador volamos a las Bahamas para descubrir no solo uno de los columpios más bonitos que hemos encontrado, sino también unas aguas turquesas que nos incitan a bañarnos en cualquier época del año. En el hotel Coco Plum Bahamas podremos disfrutar de este pequeño parque de columpios, en los que relajarnos al sol con la mirada perdida en el mar Caribe... y asegurándonos de que las fotos serán la envidia de todos nuestros seguidores.

Still some hot weather but becoming cooler and fresher for many northern and western parts Thursday Much of Portugal and Spain dry but with thundery showers in the far north, drifting into the Balearics later. Sunny spells for Corsica, Sardinia and Italy showers starting to die out, whilst it will stay mostly dry over into the Adriatic and Croatia. Isolated showers in the north of Greece with thunderstorms for the north and east of Turkey, otherwise dry and sunny. Thunderstorms over Switzerland, extending into Austria but staying mostly dry with sunny spells towards central and southeastern parts of Europe. A large area of heavy rain and thunderstorms over the north and west of France will move steadily northeast, on into the Low Countries and then Denmark, Southern Norway and Sweden later. Rain or showers further to the north and west at first in Scandinavia, dying out. Thunderstorms develop in the north and west of Germany and Poland but many parts stay dry with sunshine. Still some high temperatures across Central Europe, Southern Spain into the Mediterranean, near to 30C, locally exceeding 35 in parts of Italy, and up to around a hot 40C for some southern parts of Turkey. Cooler and fresher generally further north and west, although Finland, Southern Sweden and the Baltic States will see temperatures into the high 20s.

Friday Much of Portugal and Spain dry and sunny but with showers in the north and east and Balearics. Sunny spells for Corsica, Sardinia, Italy and the Adriatic but with a few showers, perhaps heavy in the north. Isolated showers for Greece with thunderstorms in the far northeast of Turkey, otherwise dry and sunny. Largely dry around Southeast Europe, towards the Balkan States but with thunderstorms again over Switzerland, extending into Austria and northeast into Poland. Dry and fairly sunny across Central and Southern France but with showers, some heavy, further north and into the Low Countries. Heavy, locally thundery, rain associated with a deepening low continues to move steadily north across Norway, Sweden and Northern Finland with areas further to the south and east around the Baltic also likely to catch some showers. Much of Germany will become dry, though. Little change temperature-wise across the south and east, peaks of 30C, locally exceeding 35C. Progressively cooler and fresher generally further north and west, although Finland, some southern parts of Sweden and the Baltic States will see temperatures well into the high 20s.

          Jewish Extra-Territorial Citizenship      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Oliver Locker-Lampson had an idea and on April 12, 1938 he raised it in the House of Parliament of which he was a member, saying:


my idea is this: Although I hold to the creation of a State in Palestine of possibly millions of Jews who will act as a buffer State against any military monster who may advance from the North to seize the Canal or cut the pipe-line which provides our only oil supply in the Mediterranean, the purpose of my Bill is this: It is forgotten that it is a very ancient principle, that of preserving citizenship to subjects of a State who remain abroad. For instance, there have been more citizens of Norway living outside than in Norway in one period of that country's history. I would like to give the potentially persecuted Jew in Europe the chance, if he wishes it, of becoming a Palestinian subject. Why, for instance, should Jews in Poland, who cannot move to Palestine, not be able to take up extra-territorial citizenship? They would then become what Jews are in Palestine, protected persons under the Mandate and freemen of a State. They could pay a yearly fee for the Government of Palestine, which would make that place once again a land flowing with milk and money.

He was opposed by a Colonel Brown who declared

I understood my hon. and gallant Friend to say that Jews everywhere should have Palestinian nationality. That is just enough to inflame all the feelings of patriotism amongst Mohammedans in Palestine. I say quite seriously to my hon. and gallant Friend that statements of that kind made in this House may mean the loss of several lives of British police and soldiers in Palestine. 

At the end of a tie vote the Bill was ordered to be brought in.

But it did not evolve into legislation.

And we know what happened to the Jews of Europe.

Update Sep 19th 2014:  Updated ReSharper3 , NDepend3LinqPad, TFS Team Project Manager,    Code Contracts1

See earlier update notes

Update April 12th 2014:  Updated TypeScript, ReSharper3 , TFS Power Tools , NDepend3 .  Added Devart T4 editor
Update Feb 8th 2014:  Added File Nesting  and AutoHistory, new pre-release R# version fix for NUnit/Nuget/Chutzpah issue here.
 
 

This post is a list of the extensions I recommend for use with Visual Studio 2013. It’s coming up all the time – what to install, where are the download sites, last version, etc etc, and thus I thought it better to post it here and keep it updated. The basics are Visual Studio 2013 connected to a Team Foundation Server 2013, although most also works with earlier versions. 

Many live in a side-by-side environment with Visual Studio 2010 and 2012. The side-by-side is supported by VS 2013. However, if you installed a component supporting VS2013 before you installed VS2013, then you need to reinstall it. (Components marked with Note 3 below) The VSIX installer will understand that it is to apply those only for VS2013, and will not touch – nor remove – the same for VS2010 and VS 2012. A good example here is the Power Commands.

The list is more or less in priority order.

The focus is to get a setup which can be used for a complete coding experience for the whole ALM process.

The list of course reflects what I use for my work , so it is by no means complete, and for some of the tools there are equally useful alternatives. 

The components directly associated with Visual Studio from Microsoft should be common, see the Microsoft column.

For components that are updated through the gallery, I will no longer update the latest version numbers, as they are easily controlled through the Tools/Extensions and Updates dialogue. In the version column I will just write Auto.

If you want to use the same set of extensions on multiple computers, you might like to share them easily. Lars Wilhelmsen has a great blog post about how to use Dropbox to share extensions and common settings.

Taipei, Aug. 9 (CNA) The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) said Thursday that the government is keeping in close contact with a group of Taiwanese students in Norway who are raising funds to be used in a lawsuit they plan to take to the Norway court system after the Scandinavian government labeled them as being from China rather than Taiwan.
          08/20/2018 - Spiva Art Exhibit: Look to Norway      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday – Friday

Aug. 13 through Aug. 31, 2018

(Reception from 4 to 6 p.m. Monday, Aug. 20, 2018)

MSSU Spiva Art Gallery

Admission: free

 

A group exhibition featuring artwork created by MSSU art and design students enrolled in the Spring 2018 International Art Seminar. This course culminated in a trip over spring break to study the art, culture, and landscape of Norway. The students traveled to Oslo, Flam, and Bergen, visiting art and cultural museums, national treasures, and historic sites. Students also participated in numerous cultural dinners and both coastal and inland fjord tours. The works of art created for this show were inspired by each student's experiences throughout the trip. The students aim to express the history, landscape, and aesthetic of Norway within their art. They want the show to represent the beauty and culture of Norway in every aspect of their pieces. 


The exhibition includes works of art by MSSU art and design majors Brett Dorrance, Jenson Maydew, Hunter Mills, Amber Wagner, Cicily Atkinson, and Susan Griffith. The trip was led by Dr. Christine Bentley, associate professor of art and design.

But once you’ve found that gem, it will open up all kinds of records from their native land, and likely take you back several more generations. There are three important pieces to this ancestral puzzle: the village name, the parish it belonged to and the district or kreis it was part of. Find your relatives in the most recent census and work backwards.  Look for immigration and naturalization clues (such as the year of arrival or whether they had applied for citizenship). Look for naturalization records for ancestors who may have naturalized. The naturalization process created a lot of paperwork, and in that paper work your ancestors were asked for information about where they were born, where they immigrated from, the ship they traveled on, and when they arrived in America. (The more recent the naturalization, the more likely you will find listed the place of birth, date of emigration and the ship on which they sailed.) Most applied for citizenship at one of the nearest county courthouses. Try the free GenWeb website USGenWeb for the county where you think your ancestors applied for citizenship to see what resources they have available. Also, look up the county courthouse online for records and contact information. Declarations of Intent:  The first document filed for citizenship Petitions for Naturalization:  The final papers If you need a little help, read these articles on tracing your German genealogy: Beginning German genealogy: Defining “German” Finding hard-to-find WWI-era German ancestors Brush up on your German border history.   Most recent border changes occurred in 1945 and 1871. Consult a gazetteer at the library or online, and look up the town. This should indicate the parish and Kreis. Here are more articles to help you find German places: 5 expert tips on using Meyers Gazetteer for your German genealogy Map your German ancestors German states in 1871 (on one of my favorite websites for German research, the GenWiki at Genealogy.net) On the free Genealogy Giant website Familysearch.org:  Under Search > Records, enter the last name, and the country as Germany to see if people with the same last name are listed in the same location you have pinpointed in Germany. Also on FamilySearch.org, under Search > Catalog, search by Place to see what records exist for any locale you have pinpointed. Put the village name first and then the kreis. Timelines are a great tool for seeing the bigger picture and determining how the little bits of information fall within it. MyHeritage.com is the place to make connections with relatives overseas, particularly with those who may still live in your ancestral homeland. Click here to see what MyHeritage can do for you: it’s free to get started.   GERMAN ANCESTRAL VILLAGES CONTINUED What if, as in Elizabeth’s case, the passenger list and naturalization records don’t state their place of origin?  Info about the “old country” can pop up in a LOT of different places: Death certificates Marriage records Church records Obituaries Tombstones & cemetery records Probate records Delayed birth certificates (these were often created when social security came into effect in the 1930s and 1940s.) The Germans to America book series should be consulted if your German ancestor arrived between 1850 and 1897. Learn more about it here and search it at FamilySearch.org. If you know from which port in Germany they departed, you may be able to locate their hometown in German passenger departure lists. (See links below.) Look sideways, at brothers and sisters, aunts and uncles, even friends. If you can determine where one of them was born, you will have an EXCELLENT place to look in Germany for your ancestors! In addition, determine if your ancestors had traveling companions on their way to America and look into their backgrounds. Go back to the census and check out your ancestors’ first recorded American neighborhood. Where were their neighbors from?  Folks often settled near family and friends from the old country. Bremen Passenger Lists 1920 - 1939 (free at FamilySearch) While most of the Bremen, Germany passenger departure records were destroyed -- either by German officials or during WWII -- 2,953 passenger lists for the years 1920 – 1939 have survived.

(Norwegian University of Science and Technology) Bigger isn't always better, as biologists who spent six years looking at the egg sizes of an insular population of house sparrows on Hestmannoy in Norway discovered. Having different sized eggs allowed the sparrows to raise successful nestlings, no matter the weather, the researchers found.

Sisters Meet

Yesterday, Azamara Club Cruises celebrated a rare occurrence as two of its three vessels, Azamara Pursuit – currently on its maiden voyage – and Azamara Journey – welcoming new officers  met in Haugesund, Norway, according to the company. 

The meeting was celebrated with a variety of activities including an on-shore gathering, which brought the guests and crew from each ship together, as well as a sail away party featuring Norwegian cuisine, cocktails and entertainment.

Sisters Meet

"Azamara Pursuit, joining its highly award-winning sister, Azamara Journey, marks a new era for the Azamara brand," said Larry Pimentel, President & CEO of Azamara Club Cruises. "To celebrate the special meeting of the two ships, we could not think of a better way to welcome the new ship and team members than with a celebration that brings together our crew and guests. We are thrilled to do this in Norway – one of Azamara's most popular destinations."

<b>Only on a few grids worldwide (such as Norway which is mainly hydro, Switzerland ditto, France which is mainly nuclear) do electric cars reduce CO2 emissions.</b> On most grids, electric cars either achieve no saving in CO2 emissions, or even result in an increase in CO2 emissions. This is one of the fallacies behind the use and roll out of electric vehicles. I am rather sceptical of the argument <blockquote>studies show that bigger, heavier vehicles are safer. Drivers and passengers in 54.5 mpg vehicles are more likely to die in a crash – and far more likely to be maimed, disfigured, disabled or paralyzed...</blockquote> since Europe has a lot of such vehicles, and I suspect that crash results in Europe do not support that line of argument. I suspect that some of the European countries have the least fatalities/serious casualties. This may be because Eurpoean crash/safety requirements are more stringent than the US. According to Wikipedia car fatalities per country: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/b/b0/Road_traffic_accidents_world_map_-_Death_-_WHO2012.svg The light yellow is less than 5 per 100,000 and includes Japan, the home of the light/small vehicle.

          Offshore Support Vessel Services Market Expected to Increase at a CAGR 8.9% Through 2018 to 2026      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The South East Asia offshore support vessel services market is expected to progressively recover after the oil and gas industry crisis.

New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/09/2018 -- Persistence Market Research (PMR) has published a new market research report on offshore support vessel services. The report has been titled "Offshore Support Vessel Services Market: Global Industry Analysis 2013 – 2017 and Forecast 2018 – 2026." As one of the important international trades in the world, seaborne transportation is estimated to play a pivotal role in global industrialization and progression, authorizing the transportation of very large volumes of processed and raw materials as well as water, food and other products. As per the data collected from the SAE Europe Shipyards & Maritime Equipment Association, the sea borne trade growth rate is sluggish as compared to the long-term historical average.

A sample of this report is available upon request @ https://www.persistencemarketresearch.com/samples/11302 

Global sea-borne trade configuration is estimated to be potentially influenced by planned and current initiatives such as the "One Belt, One Road Initiative", the partnership for quality infrastructure and the expansion of the Panama and Suez Canals. The growing cross border e-commerce and technology advancement coupled with the industrial revolution in developing countries have further reshaped sea-borne trade and maritime trade patterns and in turn will drive global sea-borne trade growth over the forecast period. As a result, leading companies are venturing into partnerships in order to stay competent in the global market. For instance, in September, 2017, M3 Marine Group Pte Ltd. signed a partnership with PT ROV Inspeksi. The main aim of the partnership is to create asset integrity and to enhance their collective capabilities in the offshore marine surveying and inspection arena. The new company offers remote inspection (ariel, underwater and confined space) and inspection services for both onshore and offshore marine projects & assets. Other companies operating in the global offshore support vessel services market are BOURBON Corporation, Vroon Offshore Services Pte Ltd., Pacific Radiance Ltd, Swire Pacific Limited, and Bumi Armada Berhad, among several others.

According to the report, the global offshore support vessel services market is expected to witness a CAGR of 8.9% from 2018 to 2026. The market is expected to touch US$ 11,472.8 Mn by 2018 and further expand to a valuation of US$ 22,746.7 Mn by the end of 2026.

Burgeoning Natural Gas Exploration to Boost Market Development

Over the years, the high level of emission from power industries and automobiles have made it obligatory to find an alternative for conventional fuels, such as coal and other petroleum-based fuels. As a result, several major consumer countries, such as Japan, ASEAN Countries, U.S. and European countries, have shown willingness to adopt natural gas, which is an effective alternative with reduced emission and is also abundant in nature. Countries such as Australia, Qatar, and Norway have increased the export of natural gas considerably. Demand for LNG is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period. The global LNG trade was pegged at around 244.8 MT in 2015, an increase of nearly 4.7 MT than that in 2014. Countries such as Egypt, Jordan, Poland and Pakistan entered the LNG import market in 2015. Several new liquefaction and regasification terminals that will accommodate bulk storing and processing facilities are under construction in Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Americas and are expected to start operating during the forecast period.

Labor Constraints Pertaining to Ecology and Technology to Challenge Market Growth

The growing share of ultra-deep offshore oil production will comprise tailor-made projects adapted to site conditions and characteristics of the reservoir. Industrialization and lowering of costs in deep water are big technical challenges. For production vessels and other marine projects, the development of subsea processing is expected to be more complex. Moreover, lots of work to qualify equipment and materials will be required for managing the ecological risks. Shipbuilding companies involved in the offshore sector are required to build quality employment, minimize negative environmental impact and advance the interest of the society as a whole. Moreover, the issue of promoting equity can be addressed with all-inclusive industrial policies and social programs. This would also allow workers to take advantage of the change.

          Foreign Political Sabotage and Europe's War on Israel - by Judith Bergman      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The European Union, specifically the UK, Germany, Norway and Sweden, sinisterly engage in political sabotage to undermine Israel by use of NGOs, in total disrespect of international norms

Europe, especially Western Europe, appears to have decided that destroying Israel is in its national interest. Since history has shown that Israel cannot be defeated militarily, Europe has decided to aid and abet the Arab effort in removing Israel from the map by all other means at its disposal.

A new report from NGO Monitor shows that “European-backed NGOs are flooding Israel’s courts with cases in an attempt to circumvent the democratic process to change Israeli policies while bypassing diplomatic channels in an unprecedented manner”.

A Norwegian NGO, the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC), funded by the EU, the UK and the UN, is conducting legal advocacy in close cooperation with the Palestinian Authority (PA) in violation of the principle of neutrality in humanitarian aid. The legal advocacy consists of literally flooding the Israeli court system with cases related to the Arab-Israeli conflict.

According to NGO Monitor, the NRC, through its Arab and Israeli partner NGOs, submits between 600-800 new cases to Israeli courts annually. In 2018, ICLA aims to pursue “5,399 opened and continuing cases for legal assistance in the West Bank (West Bank 1162 new and 4237 continuing)” as well as 10 cases to be submitted to the UN and/or other international mechanisms. From 2009-2014, NRC “provided legal representation in court for 4,069 cases.”

According to a lawyer affiliated with the NRC and cited by NGO Monitor, the number of cases submitted to Israeli courts are part of a strategy to use “every possible legal measure to disrupt the Israeli judicial system…as many cases as possible are registered and that as many cases as possible are appealed to increase the workload of the courts and the Supreme Court to such an extent that there will be a blockage.

Another word for that would be foreign political sabotage.


Among the issues that the NRC challenges in court are “laws, policies or practices that beneficiaries and other stakeholders consider either discriminatory and/or possible to legally challenge through public interest cases.

Between 2014 and 2016, the NRC had 4015 opened and ongoing cases of legal assistance, 419 advocacy briefings given on specific housing, land, property and residency issues, 152 laws, policies or practices challenged through public interest cases, and 87 issues of cooperation with UNDP, the PA and legal aid partners on “development of a sustainable legal aid system for housing, land and property law”.

The NRC also financially supports local anti-Israeli NGOs in their legal endeavors on behalf of Arab terrorists. For example, the NRC provided Israeli NGO Hamoked with approximately NIS 5.4 million (approximately $1.4 million) from 2015-2017. Hamoked, during this time, petitioned the Israeli High Court on behalf of family members of terrorists and against the confiscation and demolition orders issued to the homes of Arabs accused of terrorism. It represented families of terrorists responsible for the kidnapping and murder of three Israeli teens, the Har Nof massacre, the Henkin family murder, and the murders of Dani Gonen and Malachi Rozenfeld.

The British government, which is largely responsible for funding NCR’s attempts at sabotaging the Israeli judicial and political processes, has been very reluctant to admit its role, refusing to comply with NGO Monitor’s Freedom of Information requests. The UK’s Department for International Development (DFID) has provided £6.5 million for the NCR’s bombardment of Israeli courts with cases from 2013-2016. According to NGO Monitor, the DFID has stated that its purpose with the funding is to change Israeli policies. In 2013-2016, approximately £1.4 million was spent “directly on legal cases that challenged demolitions or evictions. 2,541 eviction or demolition orders were suspended as a result.

Unfortunately, according to NGO Monitor, the Israeli public and authorities appear to be entirely unaware of the scope of these efforts.

These subversive activities exist in addition to other highly political and destabilizing activities that the EU and Western European states already support in Israel, through a network of anti-Israeli NGOs. Another recent report by NGO monitor showed that between 2012 and 2016, 39 Israeli non-governmental organizations received NIS 515.8 million ($142.6 million) from foreign donors. Just over 60 percent of these resources came from foreign governments through direct or indirect funding. Twenty-five foreign governments and intergovernmental organizations were involved in funding the 39 NGOs, with Germany as top donor, followed by the EU, Norway, the Netherlands and an intergovernmental organization called the International Humanitarian Law Secretariat, jointly funded by Denmark, Sweden, Switzerland and the Netherlands.

Many of the foreign funded NGOs are major players in the boycott, divestment and sanction (BDS) efforts against Israel and in the attempt to have Israeli soldiers dragged in front of international courts for defending Israel. The NGOs include, among others, organizations such as B’Tselem, whose director has repeatedly appealed for international action against Israel, comparing Israeli policies to “crimes against God and man”.

The NGO’s also include Breaking the Silence, which collects anonymous and unsubstantiated allegations against the Israel Defense Forces from low-level soldiers in order to promote “war crime” charges against Israel. Another such organization is Coalition of Women for Peace, a major player in international BDS campaigns against Israel, especially through its “Who Profits” project, a database that identifies targets for anti-Israel divestment and boycotts.

Western European governments and the EU will never openly admit that they are supporting the disruption and ultimately destruction of Israeli society through insidious NGO networks. On the contrary, European heads of state like to portray themselves as peace-loving, boycott- opposing civilized states, who keep to the international norms of state behavior. However, undermining another sovereign state through the deceptive use of NGOs in order to circumvent the accepted modes of international cooperation is foreign sabotage, pure and simple.

It also undermines the respect for international law — the same international law that these European governments constantly claim that Israel is violating.

          Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur after Norwegian youngster Sander Berge?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
A report claims that Genk midfielder Sander Berge, capped nine times by Norway, has emerged as a late target for Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur.
          New Zealand holds rate, pushes back rate hike to 2020      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
      New Zealand's central bank left its benchmark Official Cash Rate (OCR) at 1.75 percent, as expected, and said it was expecting to maintain this rate through next year and into 2020, one year longer than projected in May, to maximize employment and maintain low and stable inflation.
      But the Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ), which has kept its rate steady since cutting it in November 2016, also repeated that "the direction of our next OCR move could be up or down."
      In his third statement since taking over as RBNZ governor in March, Adrian Orr's reference to employment and inflation reflects the central bank's new mandate that added employment to its previous mandate that only focused on inflation.
      While most central banks purely focus on inflation, New Zealand this year joined the central banks of the United States, Australia and Norway in having twin mandates.
      "We will keep the OCR at an expansionary level for a considerable time to contribute to maximizing sustainable employment, and maintaining low and stable inflation," Orr said.
       While the RBNZ has often said it would keep monetary policy expansionary for a considerable time for many months, today it pushed back its expected date for the OCR to rise to 1.9 percent from 1.8 percent by 12 months to September 2020 from September 2019 that was projected in May.
       In an update to its monetary policy statement, RBNZ sees OCR rising to 2.0 percent in December 2020, 2.1 percent by March 2021, 2.2 percent by June 2021 and 2.3 percent by September 2021.
       While RBNZ lowered its growth forecast for this year slightly, Orr said there were now "welcome early signs of core inflation rising," with inflation increasing towards the central bank's 2 percent midpoint target as the economy's output tops capacity.
       "This path may be bumpy however, with one-off price changes from global oil prices, a lower exchange rate, and and announces petrol excise tax rises expected," Orr said, adding the central bank would look through this volatility and only respond to persistent movements in inflation.
       RNBZ expects inflation to hit its 2 percent target in March 2021 as compared with December 2020 in May.
      In the second quarter of this year, New Zealand's inflation rate averaged 1.5 percent, up from 1.1 percent in the previous quarter.

     
      The Reserve Bank of New Zealand issued the following statement by its governor, Adrian Orr:

"Tena koutou katoa, welcome all.

The Official Cash Rate (OCR) remains at 1.75 percent. We expect to keep the OCR at this level through 2019 and into 2020, longer than we projected in our May Statement.  The direction of our next OCR move could be up or down.

While recent economic growth has moderated, we expect it to pick up pace over the rest of this year and be maintained through 2019. 

Robust global growth and a lower New Zealand dollar exchange rate will support export earnings.  At home, capacity and labour constraints promote business investment, supported by low interest rates.  Government spending and investment is also set to rise, while residential construction and household spending remain solid. 

The labour market has tightened over the past year and employment is roughly around its maximum sustainable level. We expect the unemployment rate to decline modestly from its current level. 

There are welcome early signs of core inflation rising. Inflation will increase towards 2 percent over the projection period as capacity pressures bite.  This path may be bumpy however, with one-off price changes from global oil prices, a lower exchange rate, and announced petrol excise tax rises expected. We will look through this volatility as appropriate, and only respond to any persistent movements in inflation.  

Risks remain to our central forecast. The recent moderation in growth could last longer.  Low business confidence can affect employment and investment decisions. Conversely, there is a chance that inflation could increase faster if cost pressures can pass through into higher prices and impact inflation expectations. 

We will keep the OCR at an expansionary level for a considerable period to contribute to maximising sustainable employment, and maintaining low and stable inflation."

          Conservative Brexit rebels will block Theresa May from crashing out of the EU without a deal      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Stephen Hammond MP

  • Conservative rebel Stephen Hammond warns Brexiteers that MPs will block a no deal Brexit.
  • In an interview with Business Insider, the ex-government minister said a majority of MPs would stop a no deal Brexit if Theresa May fails to reach an agreement with the European Union.
  • This comes after Trade Secretary Liam Fox said he'd rather leave without a deal then extend Brexit talks.
  • Hammond accused Fox of being "naive" and urged hard Brexit-supporting colleagues to become "informed." 
  • He predicted a "political crunch" for the Conservative government if there is no Brexit deal.

 

LONDON — Conservative MPs will block any attempt to crash out of the European Union without a deal, a former Conservative minister and leading Brexit rebel has told Business Insider.

A number of serving and former Cabinet ministers have talked up the prospect of a no deal Brexit, in which Britain would leave all EU treaties and bodies with immediate effect and default to World Trade Organisation rules.

Last week, Trade Secretary Liam Fox told BI he would rather leave the EU with no deal then extend negotiations. Boris Johnson, the former foreign secretary, has also claimed that Britain would "do very well" in a no deal scenario.

However, speaking to Business Insider this week, Conservative MP Stephen Hammond said that although the so-called Conservative "rebels" haven't had enough support to defeat the government in some recent Brexit votes, they would have more than enough to stop a no-deal Brexit.

"There are a number of colleagues who have wanted to give the prime minister room and scope to negotiate what her desired outcome is," Hammond said in an interview with BI this week.

"However, they are also colleagues who are clear that if the outcome is a no deal, then they'll make their view well-known that this isn't acceptable for Britain

If the outcome is a no deal, then they'll make their view well-known that this isn't acceptable for Britain.

... No deal is not the default. That will not happen."

The MP for Wimbledon and former vice-chair of the Conservative party predicted that a "political crunch" awaited Prime Minister May if she is unable to get a Brexit deal through Parliament in the coming months.

"I don't think anyone should be under any illusion. This country is facing very hard political times," he said.

Hammond is a leading supporter of a Brexit similar to the so-called Norway model, in which Britain would effectively stay in the single market via membership of the European Free Trade Association and negotiate a close customs partnership with the EU.

The ex-minister believes that faced by the reality of a no deal Brexit, most MPs would support this "smart" form of departure, which he claimed is attracting support from a growing number of MPs in the House of Commons.

May faces a political 'crunch' in the autumn

However, if MPs fail to agree on a deal before negotiations end, Britain would face "hard times," he warned.

Asked whether a failure to get a Brexit deal through Parliament could trigger Prime Minister May's downfall, Hammond said: "What will fall out of that will be impossible to predict — but it will be a crunch."

Stephen Hammond MP

Last week, BI revealed that Hammond's Tory colleague, Sarah Wollaston, was an official supporter of the People's Vote campaign. Conservative MPs Anna Soubry, Philip Lee and Justine Greening have also called for another public vote.

Hammond said he did not back another referendum "for the simple reason that there are plenty of negotiating opportunities" but did not rule out backing it in the future, saying: "I do accept that the situation may change."

As one of the so-called Conservative "rebels" — Tory MPs who have voted against the government on Brexit legislation — Hammond has been accused of treachery by some sections of the pro-Brexit media, and even some of his colleagues.

"The public discourse on this has been absolutely unacceptable," he told BI, and said MPs who support a no-deal should seek to "take an informed view" and "understand the implications" of crashing out without an agreement.

"People have to listen to facts," he said. "The overwhelming reality is that no deal is not good for Britain. The overwhelming evidence is we'd have to make a number of provisions and things will change.

"People need to accept that isn't good to be going news."

He added: "It's an odd world when people who are respected in their professions and areas of knowledge, simply because they say something that others believe is contrary to their vision of the world, are immediately dismissed as promulgators of fear and traitors."

He said Trade Secretary Fox was "naive" for accusing the EU of putting "political ideology" above its own citizens.

"The question will be whether the EU 27 leaders are willing to see the Commission's political ideology put ahead of the economic well-being of the people of Europe," Fox told BI last week. 

Hammond said: "The charge from the EU would be that some of my pro-Brexit colleagues are putting ideology before pragmatism. Until July, there wasn't a plan for the EU to negotiate with.

"What on earth has DExEU been to up to the last two years?

He added: "Liam must know as he goes around trying to put in the basis for negotiating trade deals, people will hopefully negotiate in good faith, but will clearly negotiate for the benefit of their own position.

"We would be mad to think that people are going to roll over in these negotiations and say 'Britain is a nice place so let's give it what it wants.' That's not how negotiations work. It is simply naive to think otherwise."

Numerosi sono i protagonisti che si affacciano nella sequenza di interviste, di durata complessiva di circa un’ora, ed un format piuttosto accattivante e tutto sommato inedito: tra gli intervistati (i sottotitoli sono in inglese) troviamo Necrobutcher (Jørn Stubberud), bassista e cofondatore del gruppo, oltre che unico membro ancora nei Mayhem attuali. Vengono poi interprellati Kjetil Esten Haraldsson Manheim (primo batterista della band, che sembra uno dei più loquaci), Eirik “Billy” Norheim Eirik Norheim (Messiah, ex-cantante dei Mayhem), Anders Odden (Cadaver, Satyricon, Ministry, Celtic Frost), Ted Skjellum (Nocturno Culto), Erlend Erichsen (Gorgoroth, Molested), Terje Vik Schei (in arte Tchort, in forza agli Emperor, Green Carnation, Carpathian Forest, Blood Red Throne, Satyricon e Einherjer), i giornalisti Einar Engelstad e Gunnar Sauerman, il produttore Eirik Hundvin ed il prete Rolf Rasmussen. Tra le ispirazioni musicali, per inciso, vengono citati i Venom, i Bathory e la filosofia dell’occultista Aleister Crowley; come sappiamo, del resto, per questo sottogenere di black metal, dall’impatto paragonabile all’esplosione del punk negli anni 70, non si trattò mai solo di musica: esso fu anche – per non dire soprattutto – attitudine estrema.

August podcasts are extra special these days as they follow on from a July that sees me and thousands of others soaking up the magic that is Suncebeat in beautiful Croatia. I always come back buzzing with tunes I have to find, and so they invariably end up in the August podcast. It's like a little time capsule that invokes special memories every time you listen. Always great catching up with people from all over the world both old and new. This year I met so many cool people from all over - Darren from Adelaide, Courtney from Atlanta, Francesca from DC, The Durham massive :) , Terri, Liyana and Triphina from London, Paulette from Nottingham, Pal Sorli from Norway and my Bajan brother from another Wayne and his partner Martine. This mix is for you guys and the good times had on the boat parties. Musically the mix starts off on a warm deep tip with a couple of soulful drops along with the odd classic. Things toughen up with a mix of tunes that resonated with me at Suncebeat. The incredible 'Starz' dropped by Neil Pierce, 'Photon' played by Grant Nelson on the picnic boat, 'Pick Up' dropped by Karizma at Barbarellas and 'Revolution' and 'Someday' played by just about everyone! As homage to those that couldn't make it this year we have 'Blues For You' for DC Wood from DC. Look forward to catching up next year instead. I danced soooo much at Sunce this year and hopefully you will too listening to this mix. A big shout goes to Caz B who reached out just after getting back from Sunce. it's so cool to meet people who feel the music as much as I do, such a shame we didn't meet at Sunce. Lastly I have to thank Conrad Bool, he put me on to a few of the tracks in this mix. His musical knowledge is stuff of legend and he's a top bloke to boot. Snores like a Yeti but we won't hold that against him. Credit for the cover goes to Foto Genix. The man with the cam. Tracklisting: 1: Byron The Aquarian, Cropper - Song For A Friend 2: Chevals - See You When I Gift My Broken Heart 3: Bruce D'Angelo - Can I Get A Witness 4: Introbeatz, Layfar - On Something 5: Low Steppa - The System (Extended Mix) 6: Joyfull Family - All About The Jazz 7: Christian B, Lavvy Levan - Mystery (Rapson Twice the Mystery remix) 8: DJ Steaw - Everydayz 9: DJ MoReese - Pulsar 10: Solution - Feels So Right (Original Victor Simonelli Mix) 11: Detroit Swindle, Lorenze Rhode - High Life 12: Daniel Leason - Drums 13: Kyle Kim, Sheree Hicks - Never Alone (Kenny Carpenter Redemption TV Mix) 14: Kelvin Sylvester ft Dee Lavender - Daylight (Revival Mix) 15: Rocco -Someday (Brian Tappert Rework) 16: DJ Koze -Pick Up 17: Todd Terry - Babarabatiri (David Penn Remix) 18: Dennis Quin, Shermanology - Move Out Of My Way 19: Disko Headz - Starz 20: Deetron - Photon 21: Johan S - Watcha Do (Will Come Back 2 U) 22: Harry Romero - Revolution (Deep In Jersey Extended Mix) 23: Logic - Blues For Yo (Hard Dub) 24: Lorenze Rhode - On Top Enjoy!

Train traffic disturbed in Sweden due to hot weather

DF-Xinhua Report

Train traffic was affected on Wednesday, as 39 train connections in southern and western Sweden have been cancelled due to too warm weather, the Swedish Television SVT reported.

   According to the Transport Administration, there is a risk that the train tracks will bend in the heat.

   "The temperature is high all the time, and we believe that some routes must be suspended temporarily," Joanna Ljunggren, the Press Communications Officer at the Swedish Transport Administration, told the Swedish News Agency TT.

   Train traffic from and to Stockholm, Malmo (610 km South of Stockholm), Gothenburg, Norway's capital Oslo and other smaller cities is also affected due to collapsed power lines and a signal failure.

   Train disturbance is expected to last till Thursday morning. Stops in the train traffic are expected to affect 1,000 to 1,500 passengers, and travellers are advised to contact their train companies for more information.

          Michael Moore, Errol Morris docs and new Halloween all coming to TIFF      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

New films from from famed documentarians Michael Moore, Errol Morris and Werner Herzog and — with the former two both turning their eyes on Donald Trump — along with new revamps of the Predator and Halloween franchises are all coming to this year’s Toronto International Film Festival, the fest revealed Thursday.

Moore’s Fahrenheit 11/9 — named both in homage to his earlier Fahrenheit 9/11 and in reference to Nov. 9, 2016, the morning after Trump’s election victory — is described by the fest as “a radical and humorous look at the United States” under Trump. Morris’ American Dharma looks at controversial Trump strategist Steve Bannon. The film from Moore makes its world premiere here in Toronto, while American Dharma’s screening will be a North American first.

Other docs coming include Herzog and André Singer’s Meeting Gorbachev, on the former Soviet leader; Rashida Jones and Alan Hicks’ Quincy, which profiles Jones’ endlessly quotable musical icon father, Quincy Jones; Victoria Stone and Mark Deeble’s The Elephant Queen, narrated by Chiwetel Ejiofor, tracing the epic journey of an elephant herd; Billy Corben’s Screwball, a true-crime comedy on doping in Major League Baseball; and Maxim Pozdorovkin’s The Truth About Killer Robots, investigating the lethal consequences of automation.

The Midnight Madness slate, meanwhile, has the world premieres of both Shane Black’s Predator, starring Keegan-Michael Key, Olivia Munn and Thomas Jane, and David Gordon Green’s Halloween, the 11th installment of the horror series that will once again star Jamie Lee Curtis but add Judy Greer and Will Patton. Midnight Madness programmer Peter Kuplowsky said both sequels “boldly and brilliantly builds upon its mythic iconography to thrilling and surprising effect.”

Additional world premieres at this year’s Midnight Madness will include Emma Tammi’s The Wind; The Standoff at Sparrow Creek, directed by Henry Dunham; and Vasan Bala’s The Man Who Feels No Pain, the first Indian film ever selected for the Midnight Madness program.

The fest runs Sept. 6-16. Films screening as part of the Midnight Madness program include:

          T&T drops five spots in Innovation Index      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

This country has dropped five spots on the 2018 Global Innovation Index Rankings (GII) and now ranks at 96 out of 126 countries.

Last year, T&T ranked 91 on the GII which is co-published by Cornell University, INSEAD and the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO), a specialised agency of the United Nations. In the current ratings, out of 100 this country scored 26.75, down from a score of 29.7 last year.

The fact that the efficient ratio came down from .60 to .43, means T&T is underperforming given its level of development, said Dr Balraj Kistow, lecturer and programme director at the Arthur Lol Jack Global School of Business, when he announced the rankings yesterday.

He said at a global level Switzerland, Netherlands, Sweden and the United Kingdom ranked as the top four countries. Switzerland has held the top spot since 2014. The top 15 countries are mostly high income countries mainly from Europe. Latin America and the Caribbean scored an average of 30 out of 100, ranking just above Sub-Saharan Africa.

According to the report, this country showed difficulty in converting high income into outputs.

“Among high-income countries, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Sweden, Germany, Ireland, Luxembourg, and also Hungary stand out for producing many outputs for their given level of inputs. Singapore, Australia, Japan, Hong Kong (China), Canada, New Zealand, and Norway, as well as many resource-rich economies such as Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Trinidad and Tobago stand out as high-income economies that—assuming that both inputs and outputs are properly measured—tend to perform worse,” the report said.

T&T was also one of the countries with the most missing values in the study, meaning there is need for proper data collection.

“Despite requiring minimum levels of coverage, for several economies the number of missing data points remains very high,” the study said.

Kistow said this is not the first time international bodies were unable to properly source data from T&T.

However, this country is still ranked as one of the three high-income economies in the Caribbean and Latin American region—the others are Chile and Uruguay. T&T also showed strengths in terms of innovation linkages and ease of getting credit.

Weaknesses were noted in the areas of research and development, growth of personal purchasing parity/GDP per worker, ecological sustainability and general infrastructure.

“Innovation is now widely recognised as a central driver of economic growth and development. The Global Innovation Index (GII) aims to capture the multi-dimensional facets of innovation by providing a rich database of detailed metrics for 126 economies, which represent 90.8 per cent of the world’s population and 96.3 per cent of global GDP.

“Today a wide range of high-, medium-, and low-income countries are using the GII as a tool for action to improve innovation performance—often at the prime ministerial and ministerial level, and often with specific cross-ministerial task forces comprising a large variety of relevant innovation stakeholders,” the report said.

The 2018 report is the 11th edition of the GII and is dedicated to the theme of energy innovation. It analyses the energy innovation landscape of the next decade and identifies possible breakthroughs in fields such as energy production, storage, distribution, and consumption.

Former Finance Minister and CEO of Eastern Credit Union Conrad Enill, commenting on the rankings, said corporate innovation is also important, especially when faced with disruption.

          Airborne Hyperspectral Imaging System Market Growth Driven by Technological Innovation in Commercial Sector and Defense Sector in the Near Future      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

MarketResearchReports.biz announced the addition of a new research report to its exhaustive repository. The research report, titled “Airborne Hyperspectral Imaging System Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2018 - 2026”, provides a comprehensive overview of strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats impacting the market.

Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/08/2018 -- Hyperspectral imaging system are being applied to a number of areas, including the environment, land use, agricultural monitoring, and defense. Because of it individually captures spectral and spatial information, hyperspectral imagery is often processed by traditional automated image processing tools as well as analyst-interactive approaches derived from spectroscopy. Airborne HSI products often contain both quantitative and qualitative information, arranged in an image to show the spatial relationships present in a scene. Airborne hyper spectral imaging system (HSI) is a non-contract, non-destructive procedure which finds application in a wide range of industries. The airborne hyper spectral imaging system (HSI) includes group and dispensation of data which is together across an electromagnetic spectrum.

The airborne hyper spectral imaging system enables obtaining spectrum for every pixel in a particular image or a sequence of images. The airborne hyper spectral imaging system are used to find SWIR (shortwave infrared) spectrum region for providing in depth information about the composition of a medicine. This is not possible with the help of normal or standard imaging processes. There is growing adoption of airborne hyper spectral imaging system in the military. Rising application of airborne hyper spectral imaging system in surface vision and non-destructive testing is driving the growth of the market in developed countries. Airborne hyper spectral imaging system finds application in mineralogy, surveillance and physics among others. The only factor restraining the usage of airborne hyper spectral imaging system is the cost of acquiring these devices.

          On Death Penalty, Pope Francis Rewrites The Bible      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Last week, the Vatican announced that Pope Francis had changed the Catholic catechism. After 2,000 years of teaching that a moral use of capital punishment for murder is consistent with Catholic teaching, the pope announced that the catechism, the church fathers and St. Thomas Aquinas, among the other great Catholic theologians, were all wrong.

And God and the Bible? They're wrong, too.

Pope Francis, the product of Latin American liberation theology -- along with many other Catholic religious and lay leaders -- is remaking Catholicism in the image of leftism, just as mainstream Protestant leaders have been rendering much of mainstream Protestantism a branch of leftism, and non-Orthodox Jewish clergy and lay leaders have been rendering most non-Orthodox synagogues and lay institutions left-wing organizations.

The notion that it is immoral to execute any murderer -- no matter how heinous the murder, no matter how many innocents he has murdered, no matter how incontrovertible the proof of guilt -- is an expression of emotion, not of reason or natural law or Christian theology or biblical theology.

Regarding the latter, the biblical commandment to put premeditated murderers to death is unique.

First, it is fundamental to biblical morality. The injunction of putting murderers to death is the only law found in each one of the first five books of the Bible (the Torah).

Second, all other sins involving the death penalty were only applicable to Jews (and for thousands of years, Jews regarded those death penalties not as literal but as pedagogic -- to teach the seriousness of various offenses in an attempt to create a moral and holy nation).

But the Bible makes it clear capital punishment for murder is applicable to all of humanity. It is the first law God gives Noah after the flood, after commanding him to be fruitful and multiply. Putting murderers to death is, therefore, the first moral law God gives the world. Why this draconian penalty for murder? Because the penalty is a statement about the seriousness of a crime, and the God of the Bible deems the wrongful, deliberate taking of a human life the pinnacle of injustice. Allowing all murderers to keep their own lives diminishes the evil of murder and thereby cheapens the worth of the human being. In God's words, "Whoever sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed, for God made man in his own image" (Genesis 9:6).​

It is precisely to preserve the unique worth of the human being that the Bible mandates putting murderers to death.

In 2015, Pope Francis wrote, "today capital punishment is unacceptable, however serious the condemned's crime may have been."

Unacceptable? To whom? It is acceptable to about half of American Catholics and about half of the American people. But it is unacceptable to the elites of our time, the people who have the most contempt for Catholicism and every other Bible-based religion.

The death penalty, Francis wrote, "entails cruel, inhumane and degrading treatment." These are all subjective opinions. I suspect most people do not think the death penalty as punishment for premeditated murder is necessarily cruel, inhumane or degrading. What are all of us missing? And why isn't life imprisonment cruel, inhumane and degrading? (Indeed, opposition to life imprisonment is already the norm in many progressive countries like Norway, where someone murdered 77 people, mostly children, and received a 21-year prison sentence.)

The Pope also writes that no matter how serious the crime that has been committed, "the death penalty is inadmissible because it is an attack on the inviolability and dignity of the person."

Most of us think it is the murderer, by committing murder, who has attacked his dignity and inviolability, not the society that puts him to death. We also think it is the dignity of the murder victim that is attacked by rewarding the murderer with room and board, TV, books, exercise rooms and visits from family members and girlfriends.

Furthermore, why isn't keeping a murderer in prison one day longer than is necessary to protect society an "attack on the inviolability and dignity of the person"? For that matter, isn't every punishment an attack on the dignity of the punished? Of course it is, which is why progressives ultimately oppose all punishment, equating it with vengeance.

In the middle of the night on July 23, 2007, two men entered the Cheshire, Connecticut, home of Dr. William Petit Jr. and his family. They nearly beat Dr. Petit to death with a baseball bat. Then, one of the men raped his wife, Jennifer Hawke-Petit, and the other man sexually assaulted her 11-year-old daughter, Michaela -- an assault he photographed with his cellphone. Dr. Petit managed to escape, but Hawke-Petit was strangled to death; Michaela and Hawke-Petit's other daughter, Hayley, were tied to their beds; and the house was doused with gasoline and set on fire.

In a 4-3 decision, the Connecticut Supreme Court ruled that capital punishment violated the Connecticut Constitution, thereby preventing the execution of the murderers and assaulters of Dr. Petit's family.

This was Dr. Petit's reaction: "I think when people willfully, wantingly, without any remorse take someone else's life, they forfeit their right to be among us."

For those who believe in the Bible, Dr. William Petit of Cheshire, Connecticut, echoes God's view. Pope Francis of the Vatican does not.


          Norway Is Opening for Business in Carbon Capture      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Energy has announced that it will be moving forward with an undersea project for carbon capture and storage (CSS), the first in the world to be able to store carbon dioxide (CO2) waste from multiple industrial sources. If the project is successful, it will serve as a stepping stone for full scale international operations.

The impetus behind this is to get ahead of the carbon capture curve and create an economically viable value chain solution for CCS. When this infrastructure is put into place, Norway will be able to import CO2 for permanent storage, providing a ready mechanism for countries and companies to set up their own CCS operations. It will also lower the threshold for a European hydrogen market. Norway could be getting into the business of importing and sequestering CO2 as a service.

This schematic shows terrestrial and geological sequestration of carbon dioxide emissions from a coal-fired plant.

The country is already the world leader in carbon storage, going back to the Sleipner Project, which has stored one million tons of CO2 per year since it began about 20 years ago. It was the first facility dedicated to CO2 storage and was installed as a means of avoiding the Norwegian carbon tax and reducing the CO2 content of natural gas produced in the area, which exceeded the specified European Union limit in CO2 concentration of 2.5%.

The CO2 was removed using an amine-based sorbent, with the excess being pumped under the seabed to a depth of roughly 1 km. Of the 17 large-scale CCS facilities operating worldwide today, only four are dedicated to carbon storage. Two are in Norway (Sleipner and Snøhvit), one in Canada (Quest), and one in the US (Decatur). The rest are being used for enhanced oil recovery.

The importance of CCS technology is hard to overstate, at least for as long as fossil fuels are part of the energy and industrial landscape. The International Energy Agency (IEA) has called CCS a key technology for reducing coal and gas emissions across industries. In a statement to Business Insider, an IEA spokesperson said, “There is no other technology solution [today] that can significantly reduce emissions from the coal and gas power generation capacity that will remain a feature of the electricity mix for the foreseeable future. No other technology solution is capable of delivering the deep emissions reductions needed across key industrial processes, such as steel, cement, and chemicals manufacturing, all of which will remain vital building blocks of modern society.”

This latest demonstration scale project, which is expected to be online by 2020, is unique in that it will capture emission from two different industry types: a cement factory in Brevik, owned by Heidelberg Cement, and an energy recovery (waste incineration) plant in Oslo. These sites all delivered their concept studies for CO2 capture in the fall of 2017. Each plant plans to capture roughly 400,000 tons annually.

In operation, CO2 will be transported by ship from each capture plant to an onshore facility on the Norwegian West Coast for temporary storage. It will then be transported via a pipeline to a subsea formation in the North Sea for long-term storage. The Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Energy has identified several injection wells east of the Troll field on the Norwegian Continental Shelf. The CO2 will be stored permanently up to 2,000 meters below the seabed.

According to Equinor, an oil and gas company that is a partner in the project and was involved in the earlier Norwegian CCS projects, “The reservoir surveyed for CO2 storage has the capacity to accommodate significant additional volumes.”

The company will be responsible for the planning of the storage facility and is also looking into the feasibility of pairing this carbon capture capability with hydrogen production. When hydrogen is produced from natural gas, it emits CO2 as a byproduct. But if the CO2 could be safely sequestered, it could provide a carbon-free alternative. Equinor, along with partners Vattenfall and Gasunie, is currently assessing the possibility of converting a natural gas power plant to run on hydrogen and sequestering the resulting CO2 emissions beneath the seabed.

          EINHERJER To Release 'Norrøne Spor' Album In November      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Viking metal veterans EINHERJER have carried out their vision for more than two decades. The band was there when Norwegian extreme metal grew forth and took shape as an enormous cultural export. Only four years after their masterpiece "Av Oss, For Oss" and two years after "Dragons Of The North XX", the band will release its ninth full-length album, titled "Norrøne Spor", on November 9. The disc's first single and music video, "Spre Vingene", can be seen below. EINHERJER's Norse heritage is a phenomenon that reaches far beyond what one can hear alone. It is an amalgamation of the mystique and sagas of old, of songs and poems, of woodcutting and sword grinding and the vikings merciless way of life. It's a cultural patchwork that fills the consciousness with the brutal majesty of the Nordic nature, the elemental strain, of mighty longships plowing the black seas to reach unknown shores. The wisdom of the gods and their Valhalla. Of cultural encounters and trade. Of violence and brutality. Of tough men in a tough time. Their hometown Haugesund also rings with historic sound, and from their own shores on the west coast of Norway the influence of the Vikings stretched towards the sea and the world beyond. The adventurers, pioneers, poets and craftsmen have inspired EINHERJER to go their own way. The Vikings' courage and boldness have inspired us to never compromise EINHERJER's vision, a vision that is a unique, self-made, original and modern interpretation of our mighty Nordic heritage. EINHERJER vocalist and bassist Frode Glesnes commented: "Classic EINHERJER meets the future and the past. No, we have not returned to our roots. That's a way overused cliché and it always calls for bullshit. We have simply written and arranged more stuff together. "On our last few albums we have written songs separately; this time we've looked at what happens when Gerhard and me are in a room together. "We still have a firm grip on what EINHERJER is all about. That will never change. "Here is 10 new songs that any heathen metalhead should be able to love and appreciate. No bullshit, just 10 great metal songs." He added about the single: "New EINHERJER single. It always feels good to release something new, but this time we've fuckin' nailed it! Can't wait to present the whole album." Track listing: 01.

          Dinesh D'Souza's lazy, ugly propaganda film      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   


Melissa Joskow / Media Matters

Dinesh D’Souza’s new fake-documentary Death of a Nation opens with Adolf Hitler and his companion Eva Braun grimly committing suicide in the Fuhrerbunker, after which their bodies are hauled up to the streets of war-ravaged Berlin and set on fire. If you were to ask me why the movie opens with this gruesome reenactment, or why D’Souza had the actor portraying the Nazi dictator stare poignantly into the camera before shooting himself in the head, I honestly could not tell you. Nor can I offer any coherent explanation for why this film inflicts several other cinematic retellings of Hitler’s life upon the viewer. None of it is explained, and none of it makes much sense. What I can say is that Death of a Nation is a terrible and disgusting film, even by D’Souza standards.

By now D’Souza’s filmmaking shtick is tiresome and relentlessly predictable: He play-acts at being a public intellectual and haphazardly tortures the historical record in the service of “proving” an ill-considered argument. In the process, he typically ends up accidentally disproving his own thesis and veers off into bigotry. The shodiness of the scholarship is (poorly) papered over with cinematic flourishes and ego-engorging footage of “Dinesh D’Souza: Serious Historian” as he walks around historically significant sites bathing them with terribly meaningful glances. Death of a Nation ticks all these boxes and offers a couple more pathetically self-indulgent twists, like carving out a few minutes of screentime for D’Souza’s wife to warble a treacly song about America.

The thrust of Death of a Nation is that America is at a moment of existential crisis similar to the Civil War, and that the nation will, ahem, die if “the left” (George Soros, antifa, moderate Democrats, whoever) succeeds at whatever nefarious scheme it is assumed to have. The only thing standing between America and its demise is President Donald Trump, whom D’Souza casts as a glittering reincarnation of Abraham Lincoln. D’Souza presents the divide between left and right in hilariously childish terms, describing Democrats and progressives as “the bad guys” (meaning racists and fascists and totalitarians) and Republicans and conservatives as “the good guys” (the opposite of the bad guys). This dynamic has held firm throughout American history, D’Souza argues, and is a global phenomenon as well.

That brings us back to Hitler. D’Souza’s theory of history requires that every villain be of the left, so he is obligated to demonstrate that fascism is actually a left-wing ideology. D’Souza is a late arrival to this rotten exercise in partisan revisionism, and his contributions to it are characteristically lazy. “Check out the official Nazi platform,” D’Souza says. “State-controlled health care, profit-sharing for workers and large corporations, moneylenders and profiteers punished by death, state control of education, state control of media and the press, state control of banks and industries, seizure of land without compensation, state control of religious expression -- this reads like something jointly written by Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders!”

This grotesque comparison required D’Souza to both water down the explicit bigotry of the Nazi platform and impute its totalitarian character to two sitting senators -- one of whom is Jewish, and neither of whom advocate for murdering bankers or call for state-run media, etc. But since D’Souza wants to ply this simple-minded exercise, I’ll point out that the Nazi platform also calls for a ban on immigration, mass deportations, a military buildup, and “legal opposition to known lies and their promulgation through the press.”

Blundering and incendiary allegations of leftist-fascist alignment abound in Death of a Nation. D’Souza argues that Auschwitz doctor and war criminal Josef Mengele was a “progressive” because he performed abortions in South America after the war. “Under Obama, we saw government control increase dramatically over banks, investment companies, energy companies, the entire health care sector, and education,” D’Souza says. “This is state-run capitalism [it isn’t], which is the clinical definition of fascism [it’s not].”

His treatment of Hitler’s relationship with Ernst Röhm, the commander of the Nazi Party paramilitary force Sturmabteilung, clearly demonstrates D’Souza’s pernicious sloppiness. “Some progressives try to portray Hitler as a right-winger by insisting he was anti-gay,” D’Souza says. “But Hitler knew that the brownshirt leader Ernst Röhm was a notorious homosexual, as were many other brownshirts. ... When Heinrich Himmler urged Hitler to purge the gay brownshirts out of the Nazi movement, Hitler refused. Hitler said he didn’t care what the brownshirts did in private, as long as they were good fighters. Hitler was no social conservative.”

This argument is a disgusting whitewash of Nazi terror and is an accidental indictment of social conservatism. To suggest that Hitler was somehow tolerant of (or indifferent to) homosexuality because he declined to persecute the stormtroopers who committed political violence on his behalf deliberately ignores Third Reich’s legal attacks on Germany’s LGBTQ population and the countless LGBTQ people who died in Hitler’s concentration camps. Röhm’s purge was followed by a viciously homophobic propaganda campaign used to justify the action.

And it’s absurd for D’Souza, himself a social conservative, to define “social conservatism” against Hitler’s politically expedient hesitancy to expel/murder gay men from his political movement. If Hitler’s (temporary) unwillingness to do that disqualifies him from the ranks of social conservatives, then what does that say about true social conservatives?

The flipside to D’Souza’s artless smearing of leftists as the “real” fascists is his equally incompetent effort to absolve the right generally (and Donald Trump specifically) of the taint of white supremacy.

D’Souza tries to argue that 2017’s violent white supremacist outburst in Charlottesville, VA, which left one counter-protester dead, had nothing to do with right-wing politics or Donald Trump. “There they are, white supremacists and neo-Nazis in Trump hats,” D’Souza sneers over footage of the Charlottesville rallies. “Doesn’t that prove that racism today is on the right?”

Not at all, D’Souza counters, saying that Charlottesville organizer and white supremacist Jason Kessler was once an Obama supporter. He doesn’t explain why that fact precludes Kessler being a white nationalist Trump supporter now, nor does he explain how it debunks the footage D’Souza himself aired of white supremacists in Charlottesville wearing “Make America Great Again” hats, nor does he address the fact that Trump defended the white nationalist protesters. He just makes a largely meaningless observation that leaves the ongoing issue of white nationalists’ affinity for Trump glaringly unresolved.

D’Souza also interviews white supremacist figurehead Richard Spencer in an attempt to demonstrate that Spencer’s and Trump’s worldviews are wholly divergent, and his gambit backfires. D’Souza asks him: “Would you be happy with an immigration strategy that basically said, ‘We want people from New Zealand, Australia, white guys from Europe, Iceland, and South Africa; we don’t want that many people from -- if any -- Barbados or Bombay?’” After Spencer says yes, D’Souza responds: “Now this seems very different than Trump.”

It’s not really that different, though, given that Trump reportedly told lawmakers that he wanted more immigrants from Norway and fewer people from “shithole countries” -- Haiti and African nations, specifically. That comment was a big hit among white supremacists, including Spencer. D’Souza insists to Spencer that “the line that Trump is drawing is not a racial line but a line between the legal and the illegal immigrant.” The Trump White House, meanwhile, is reportedly planning harsh restrictions on legal immigrants seeking citizenship.

Ridiculous, self-defeating arguments like this permeate Death of a Nation primarily because D’Souza doesn’t give a shit and has precisely zero respect for his intended audience. D’Souza does not want to change minds or start a discussion about political history -- this movie exists to wring as much cash as can be wrung from people who already believe that Democrats are Nazis and, as D’Souza puts it, “the real racists.” He doesn’t care about the soundness of his arguments. He just wants money and to go on TV.

At this point, D’Souza barely bothers to conceal his avarice and mendacity because he doesn’t have to. He exists within a putrefying conservative political and media ecosystem that either celebrates his fraudulent money-grubbing or determinedly ignores it. He’s doing the rounds on Fox News and talk radio, and he has the support of the president and the president’s family. None of them care that D’Souza has been discredited more times than can be counted, or that he’s erasing Hitler’s murderous persecution of LGBTQ people, or that he accidentally demonstrated parallels between Trump and white supremacists. D’Souza is calling Democrats “fascists” and Donald Trump the next Abe Lincoln, and that’s good enough.

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.

Britain's environmental secretary says the country will ban the sale of new gas or diesel vehicles by 2040. The plan is to phase out all cars with internal combustion engines by 2050. And this has become a movement in Europe. France and Norway have announced similar plans with pressure growing in Germany to do the same.

          Path to client workspace automation paved with hyperconverged infrastructure for New Jersey college      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The next BriefingsDirect hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) use case discussion explores how a New Jersey college has embarked on the time-saving, virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) modernization journey.

We will now learn how the combination of HCI and VDI makes the task of deploying and maintaining the latest end-user devices far simpler -- and cheaper than ever before.

Listen to the podcast. Find it on iTunes. Get the mobile app. Read a full transcript or download a copy.

Here to explore how a new digital and data-driven culture can emerge from uniting the desktop edge with the hyper-efficient core are Tom Gillon, Director of Network and User Services at County College of Morris (CCM) in Randolph, New Jersey; Michael Gilchrist, Assistant Director of Network Systems at County College of Morris (CCM), and Felise Katz, CEO of PKA Technologies, Inc. The discussion is moderated by Dana Gardner, principal analyst at Interarbor Solutions.

Here are some excerpts:

Gardner: What are the trends driving your needs at County College of Morris to modernize and simplify your personal computer (PC) architecture?

Gillon: We need to be flexible and agile in terms of getting software to the students, when they need it, where they need it.

Gillon
With physical infrastructure that really isn’t possible. So we realized that VDI was the solution to meet our goals -- to get the software where the students need it, when they need it, and so that’s a top trend that got us to this point.

Gardner: And is the simplicity of VDI deployments something you are looking at universally, or is this more specific to just students?

Gillon: We are looking to deploy VDI all throughout the college: Faculty, staff, and students. We started out with a pilot of 300 units that we mostly put out in labs and in common areas for the students. But now we are replacing older PCs that the faculty and staff use as well.

Gardner: VDI has been around for a while, and for the first few years there was a lot of promise, but there was also some lag from complications in that certain apps and media wouldn’t run properly; there were network degradation issues. We’ve worked through a lot of that, but what are some of your top concerns, Michael, when it comes to some of those higher-order infrastructure performance issues that you have to conquer before you get to the proper payoff from VDI?
Get Your Gorilla Guide
To HCI Implementation Strategies
Gilchrist: You want to make sure that the user experience is the same as what they would experience on a physical device, otherwise they will not accept it.

Just having the horse power -- nowadays these servers are so powerful, and now you can even get graphics processing units (GPUs) in there -- you can run stuff like AutoCADor Adobeand still give the user the same experience that they would normally have on a physical device. That’s what we are finding. Pretty good so far.

Gardner: Felise, as a Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) Platinum Partner, you have been through this journey before, so you know how it was rough-and-tumble there for a while with VDI. How has that changed from your perspective at PKA Technologies?

Katz: When HPE made the acquisition of SimpliVity that was the moment that defined a huge game-changer because it enabled us, as a solution provider, to bring the right technology to CCM. That was huge.

Gardner: When you’re starting out on an IT transition, you have to keep the wings on the airplane while you’re changing the engines, or vice versa. You have to keep things going while you are doing change. Tom, how did you manage that? How did you keep your students getting their apps? How have you been able to swap things out in a way that hasn’t been disruptive?

Gillon: The beauty of VDI is that we can switch out a lab completely with thin clients in about an hour. And we didn’t realize that going in. We thought it would take us most of the day. And then when we did it, we were like, “Oh my God, we are done.” We were able to go in there first thing in the morning and knock it out before the students even came in.

That really helped us to get these devices out to where the students need them and to not be disruptive to them.
That really helped us to get these devices out to where the students need them and not be disruptive to them.

Gardner: Tom, how did it work from your perspective in terms of an orderly process? How was the support from your partners like PKA? Do you get to the point where this becomes routine?

Gillon: PKA has the expertise in this area. We worked with them previously on an Aruba wireless network deployment project, and we knew that’s who we wanted to work with, because they were professional and thorough.

Moving to the thin client systems deployments, we contacted PKA and they put together a solution that worked well for us. We had not been aware of SimpliVity combined with HPE. They determined that this would be the best path for us, and it turned out to be true. They came in and we worked with HPE, setting this up and deploying it. Michael did a lot of that work with HPE. It was very simple to do. We were surprised at how simple it was.

Academic pressure 

Gardner:Felise, as a solution partner that specializes in higher education, what’s different from working at a college campus environment from, say, a small- to medium-sized business (SMB) or another type of enterprise? Is there something specific about a college environment, such as the number of apps, the need for certain people and groups in the college to have different roles within responsibilities? How did it shake out?

Katz: That’s an interesting question. As a solution provider, as an owner of a business, we always put our best foot forward. It really doesn’t matter whether it’s an academic institution or a commercial customer, it always has to be done in the right way.

Katz
As a matter of fact, in academics it’s even more profound, and a lot more pressured, because you are dealing with students, you are dealing with faculty, and you are dealing with IT staff. Once we are in a “go” mode, we are under a lot of pressure. We have a limited time span between semesters -- or vacations and holidays -- where we have to be around to help them to get it up and running.

We have to make sure that the customer is enabled. And with these guys at CCM, they were so fabulous to work with. They enabled us to help them to do more with less -- and that’s what the solution is all about. It’s all about simplification. It’s all about modernization. It’s all about being more efficient. And as Michael said so eloquently, it’s all about the experience for the students. That’s what we care about.
That’s Right for Your Needs
Gardner: Michael, where are you on your VDI-enablement journey? We heard that you want to go pervasively to VDI. What have you had to put in place -- in terms of servers in the HPE SimpliVity HCI case -- to make that happen?

Gilchrist: So far, we have six servers in total. Three servers in each of our two data centers that we have on campus, for high redundancy. That’s going to allow us to cover our initial pilot of 300 thin clients that we are putting out there.

As far as the performance of the system goes, we are not even scratching the surface in terms of the computing or RAM available for those first 300 endpoints.

When it comes to getting more thin clients, I think we’re going to be able to initially tack on more thin clients to the initial subset of six servers. And as we grow, the beauty of SimpliVity is that we just buy another server, rack it up, and bolt it in -- and that’s it. It’s just plug and play.

Gardner: In order to assess how well this solution is working, let’s learn more about CCM. It’s 50 years old. What’s this college all about?

Data-driven college transformation 

Gillon: We are located in North Central New Jersey. We have an enrollment of about 8,000 students per semester; that’s for credit. We also have a lot of non-credit students coming and going as well.

As you said, we are 50-years-old, and I’ve been there almost 23 years. I was the second person hired in the IT Department.

I have seen a lot come and go, and we actually just last year inaugurated our third college president, just three presidents in 50 years. It’s a very stable environment, and it’s really a great place to work.

Gardner: I understand that you have had with this newest leadership more of a technical and digital transformation focus. Tell us how the culture of the college has changed and how that may have impacted your leaping into some of the more modern infrastructure to support VDI.

Gillon: Our new president is very data-driven. He wants data on everything, and frankly we weren't in a position to provide that.

We also changed CIOs. Our new CIO came in about a year after the new president, and he has also a strong data background. He is more about data than technology. So, with that focus we really knew that we had to get systems in place that are capable of quick transitions, and this HCI system really did the job for us. We are looking to expand further beyond that.

Gardner:Felise, I have heard other people refer to hyperconverged infrastructure architectures like SimpliVity as a gift that keeps giving. Clearly the reason to get into this was to support the VDI, which is a difficult workload. But there are also other benefits.
The simplification from HCI has uncomplicated their capability for growth and for scale.

What have been some of the other benefits that you have been able to demonstrate to CCM that come with HCI? Is it the compression, the data storage savings, or a clear disaster recovery path that they hadn’t had before? What do you see as some of the ancillary benefits?

Katz: It's all of the above. But to me -- and I think to both Tom and Michael -- it's really the simplification, because [HCI] has uncomplicated their capability for growth and for scale.

Look, they are in a very competitive business, okay, attracting students, as Tom said. That’s tough, that's where they have to make the difference, they have to make a difference when that student arrives on campus with his, I don’t know, how many devices, right?

One student, five devices 

Gillon: It averages five now, I think.

Katz: Five devices that come on board. How do you contend with that, besides having this huge pipe for all the data and everything else that they have to enable? And then you have new ways of learning that everybody has to step up and enable. It's not just about a classroom; it’s a whole different world. And when you’re in a rural part of New Jersey, where you’re looking to attract students, you have to make sure you are at the top of your game.

Gardner:Expectations are higher than ever, and the younger people are even more demanding because they haven’t known anything else.

Katz: Yes, just think about their Xbox, their cell phones, and more devices. It's just a huge amount. And it's not only for them, it's also for your college staff.

Gardner: We can’t have a conversation about IT infrastructure without getting into the speeds and feeds a little bit. Tell us about your SimpliVity footprint, energy, maintenance, and operating costs. What has this brought to you at CCM? You have been doing this for 23 years, you know what a high-maintenance server can be like. How has this changed your perspective on keeping a full-fledged infrastructure up and running?

Ease into IT

Gillon: There are tremendous benefits, and we are seeing that. The six servers that we have put in, they are replacing a lot of other devices. If we would have gone with a different solution, we would have had a rack full of servers to contend with. With this solution, we are putting three devices in each of our server rooms to handle the load of our initial 300 VDI deployments -- and hopefully more soon.

There are a lot of savings involved, such as power. A lot of our time is being saved because we are not a big shop. Besides Michael and myself, I have a network administrator, and another systems administrator -- that’s it, four people. We just don't have the time to do a lot of things we need to do -- and this system solves a lot of those issues.

Gilchrist: From a resources utilization standpoint, the deduplication and compression that the SimpliVity system provides is just insane. I am logically provisioning hundreds of terabytes of information in my VMware system -- and only using 1.5 terabytes physically. And just the backup and restore, it's kind of fire and forget. You put this stuff in place and it really does do what they say. You can restore large virtual machines (VMs) in about one or two seconds and then have it back up and running in case something goes haywire. It just makes my life a lot easier.

I’m no longer having to worry about, “Well, who was my back-up vendor? Or who is my storage area network (SAN) vendor? And then there’s trying to combine all of those systems into one. Well, HPE SimpliVityjust takes care of all of that. It’s a one-stop shop; it’s a no-brainer.

Gardner: All in one, Felise, is that a fair characterization?

To HCI Implementation Strategies
Katz: That is a very, very true assessment. My goal, my responsibility is to bring forward the best solution for my customers and having HPE in my corner with this is huge. It gives me the advantage to help my clients, and so we are able to put together a really great solution for CCM.

Gardner: There seems to be a natural progression with IT infrastructure adoption patterns. You move from bare metal to virtualization, then you move from virtualization to HCI, and then that puts you on a path to private cloud -- and then hybrid cloud. And in doing this modernization, you get used to the programmatic approach to infrastructure, so composable infrastructure.

Do you feel that this progression is helping you modernize your organization? And where might that lead to, Tom?

Gillon: I do. With the experience we are gaining with SimpliVity, we see that this can go well beyond VDI, and we are excited about that. We are getting to a point where our current infrastructure is getting a little long in the tooth. We need to make some decisions, and right now the two of us are like, this is only decision we want to make. This is the way we are going to go.

Gardner: I have also read that VDI is like the New York of IT -- if you can do it there, you can do it anywhere. So what next workloads do you have in mind? Is this enterprise resource planning (ERP), is it business apps? What?

Gillon: All of the above. We are definitely looking to put some of our server loads into the VDI world, and just the benefits that SimpliVity gives to us in terms of business continuity and redundancy, it really is a no-brainer for us.

And yes, ERP, we have our ERP system currently virtualized, and the way Michael has things set up now, it's going to be an easy transition for us when we get to that point.

Gardner: We have talked a lot about the hardware, but we also have to factor in the software. You have been using the VMware Horizonapproach to VDI and workspaces, and that’s great, but what about moving toward cloud?

Do you want to have more choice in your hypervisor? Does that set you on another path to make choices about private cloud? What comes next in terms of what you support on such a great HCI platform?

A cloudy future?

Gillon: We have decisions to make when it comes to cloud. We are doing some things in the cloud now, but there are some things we don't want to do in the cloud. And HPE has a lot of solutions.

We recently attended a discussion with the CEO of HPE [Antonio Neri] about where they are headed, and they say hybrid is the way to go. You are going to have some on-premises workloads, you are going to have some off-premises. And that's where we see CCM going as well.

Gardner: What advice would you give to other organizations that are maybe later in starting out with VDI? What might save them a step or two?
Get yourself a good partner because there are so many things that you don't know about these systems.

Gillon: First thing, get yourself a good partner because there are so many things that you don't know about these systems. And having a good partner like PKA, they brought a lot to the table. They could have easily provided a solution to us that was just a bunch of servers.

Gilchrist: Yes, they brought in the expertise. We didn’t know about SimpliVity, and once they showed us everything that it can do, we were skeptical. But it just does it. We are really happy with it, and I have to say, having a good partner is step number one.

Gardner: Felise, what recommendations do you have for organizations that are just now dipping their toe into workloads like VDI? What is it about HCI in particular that they should consider?

Look to the future 

Katz: If they are looking for flexible architecture, if they are looking for the agility, to be able to make those moves down the road -- and that's where their minds are – then they really have to do the due diligence. Tom, Michael and their team did. They were able understand what their needs are, what right requirements are for them -- not just for today but also going down the road to the future.

When you adopt a new architecture, you are displacing a lot of your older methodologies, too. It’s a different world, a hybrid world. You need to be able to move, and to move the workloads back and forth.

It’s a great time right now. It's a great place to be because things are working, and they are clicking. We have the reference architectures available now to help, but it’s really first about doing their homework.
That’s Right for Your Needs
CCM is really a great team to work with. It's really a pleasure, and it’s a lot of fun.

And I would be remiss not to say, I have a great team. From my sales to my technical: Strategic Account Manager Angie Moncada, Systems Engineer Patrick Shelley, and Vice President of Technology Russ Chow, they were just all-in with them. That makes a huge difference when you also connect with HPE on the right solutions. So that’s really been great.

In 1941-44, Nazi Germany's Gebirgsj?ger - elite mountain troops - clashed repeatedly with land-based units of the Soviet Navy during the mighty struggle on World War II's Eastern Front. Formed into naval infantry and naval rifle brigades, some 350,000 of Stalin's sailors would serve the Motherland on land, playing a key role in the defence of Moscow, Leningrad, and Sevastopol. The Gebirgsj?ger, many among them veterans of victories in Norway and then Crete, would find their specialist skills to be at a premium in the harsh terrain and bitter weather encountered at the northern end of the front line. Operating many hundreds of miles north of Moscow, the two sides endured savage conditions as they fought one another inside the Arctic Circle.

          Europavorhersage: Thundery rain France, moving into Scandinavia - Mostly dry in the south and east, 09 Aug - 06:43      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Still some hot weather but becoming cooler and fresher for many northern and western parts Thursday Much of Portugal and Spain dry but with thundery showers in the far north, drifting into the Balearics later. Sunny spells for Corsica, Sardinia and Italy showers starting to die out, whilst it will stay mostly dry over into the Adriatic and Croatia. Isolated showers in the north of Greece with thunderstorms for the north and east of Turkey, otherwise dry and sunny. Thunderstorms over Switzerland, extending into Austria but staying mostly dry with sunny spells towards central and southeastern parts of Europe. A large area of heavy rain and thunderstorms over the north and west of France will move steadily northeast, on into the Low Countries and then Denmark, Southern Norway and Sweden later. Rain or showers further to the north and west at first in Scandinavia, dying out. Thunderstorms develop in the north and west of Germany and Poland but many parts stay dry with sunshine. Still some high temperatures across Central Europe, Southern Spain into the Mediterranean, near to 30C, locally exceeding 35 in parts of Italy, and up to around a hot 40C for some southern parts of Turkey. Cooler and fresher generally further north and west, although Finland, Southern Sweden and the Baltic States will see temperatures into the high 20s.

Friday Much of Portugal and Spain dry and sunny but with showers in the north and east and Balearics. Sunny spells for Corsica, Sardinia, Italy and the Adriatic but with a few showers, perhaps heavy in the north. Isolated showers for Greece with thunderstorms in the far northeast of Turkey, otherwise dry and sunny. Largely dry around Southeast Europe, towards the Balkan States but with thunderstorms again over Switzerland, extending into Austria and northeast into Poland. Dry and fairly sunny across Central and Southern France but with showers, some heavy, further north and into the Low Countries. Heavy, locally thundery, rain associated with a deepening low continues to move steadily north across Norway, Sweden and Northern Finland with areas further to the south and east around the Baltic also likely to catch some showers. Much of Germany will become dry, though. Little change temperature-wise across the south and east, peaks of 30C, locally exceeding 35C. Progressively cooler and fresher generally further north and west, although Finland, some southern parts of Sweden and the Baltic States will see temperatures well into the high 20s.

          Listen To New VREID Song 'Black Rites In The Black Nights'      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Norwegian metallers VREID will release their new album, "Lifehunger", on September 28 via Season Of Mist. The disc's new single, "Black Rites In The Black Nights", can be streamed below. VREID comments: "Sometimes everything is so dark that you only see life. "This album is all about the primordial hunger that keeps us marching forward. It's a celebration of the creative spirit, and a big fuck off to every obstacle on the way." "Lifehunger" track listing: 01. Flowers & Blood (1:50) 02. One Hundred Years (5:39) 03. Lifehunger (5:36) 04. The Dead White (4:59) 05. Hello Darkness (4:39) 06. Black Rites In The Black Nights (6:26) 07. Sokrates Must Die (3:29) 08. Heimatt (6:01) VREID has announced a string of Norwegian tour dates with ENSLAVED and GAAHLS WYRD. VREID was formed in 2004. The Norwegian metal brigade rose from the ashes of WINDIR after the tragic perishing of the "Sognametal" legends with the declared mission of exploring new musical paths. The Norsemen proved true to their words and have so far delivered seven albums and one DVD, each of which received high praise from critics and fans alike. VREID chose a course of constant evolution that is marked by thematically denoted phases regarding their often historically inspired lyrics. This became particularly clear with albums "I Krig" (2007) and "Milorg" (2009), which both revolved around concepts dealing with resistance and liberation of Norway during World War II. With their following three records, VREID returned to their Norse roots, especially on latest full-length, "Sólverv", which received high critical acclaim in 2015. VREID has hammered out its success partly by being a heavily touring band. The four-piece performed more than 500 shows in 25 countries so far. Their everlasting march to conquer new territories has led the Norwegians to headline tours in Europe, North America, Japan, and India. VREID's style is often referred to as black 'n roll and Metal Hammer described their music as "a unique time travel in metal" as elements of '70s rock, '80s classic metal and Norwegian black metal are all clearly audible.

I don't stop buying stuff from an entire country just because I don't like their elected leader. Most Chinese people are equally discerning and don't change their lives upside down just because they don't like the political climate in a foreign country. You must be one of those 'resistance' types who can't imagine being happy since an election 2 years ago and want to ensure that everybody else is as miserable as you are.

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
