          She's Pictured... 14-Year Old Girl ‘Murders’ 71-Year Old Woman In Edo State      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The Edo State Police Command has arrested a 14-year old girl identified as Anna Amos, over the murder of a 71-year old woman, Mrs. Helen Adodo, which occurred on Tuesday.

The deceased was said to have died on Tuesday, after her head was smashed with a stone by unknown persons who allegedly sneaked into her residence on Guobadia Street, in Benin, at about 7am.

It was gathered that Anna had been living with the septuagenarian as her househelp since March, 2018, before the incident.

The assailants, it was learnt, blindfolded the teenage suspect before killing the septuagenarian.


The incident attracted residents and sympathisers, some of whom wailed as they saw the lifeless body of the victim.

A man who is suspected to be the son of the deceased, expressed shock over his mother’s death. He said that his mother did not have disagreement with anyone in the neighbourhood.

“She was just a peaceful woman. She was just an old woman; so, I was surprised to see her in a pool of blood,” he stated.

The police are working to unravel the actual killer of the deceased, following an alleged confession by the teenager claiming responsibility for the death of the woman.

A clip obtained by journalists on Wednesday showed the teenager confessing to the crime in the presence of some residents in the area.

She also claimed that she did not know the number of time the deceased was hit with the stone as she did not know what came over her.

She explained, “When I took some plates outside, I took a broom and swept outside. I stood on the stone and looked up and down.

“When I did that, something entered my body. I stood on the stone again and looked up and down.

“I took the stone to the veranda and sat on it. Later, I entered the room and did not know when I hit her head with the stone.

          Francia cannibale, si mangia l’Africa: il bilancio dell’orrore      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Francia cannibale, si mangia l'Africa: il colonialismo di Parigi sottrae ogni anno 500 miliardi di dollari a 14 paesi africani.
Sapevate che molti paesi africani continuano a pagare una tassa coloniale alla Francia dalla loro indipendenza fino ad oggi? Quando Sékou Touré della Guinea decise nel 1958 di uscire dall’impero coloniale francese, e optò per l’indipendenza del paese, l’élite coloniale francese a Parigi andò su tutte le furie e, con uno storico gesto, l’amministrazione francese della Guinea distrusse qualsiasi cosa che nel paese rappresentasse quelli che definivano i vantaggi della colonizzazione francese. Tremila francesi lasciarono il paese, prendendo tutte le proprietà e distruggendo qualsiasi cosa che non si muovesse: scuole, ambulatori, immobili dell’amministrazione pubblica furono distrutti; macchine, libri, strumenti degli istituti di ricerca, trattori furono sabotati; i cavalli e le mucche nelle fattorie furono uccisi, e le derrate alimentari nei magazzini furono bruciate o avvelenate. L’obiettivo di questo gesto indegno era quello di mandare un messaggio chiaro a tutte le altre colonie: il costo di rigettare la Francia sarebbe stato molto alto. Lentamente la paura serpeggiò tra le élite africane e nessuno, dopo gli eventi della Guinea, trovò mai il coraggio di seguire l’esempio di Sékou Touré, il cui slogan fu “Preferiamo la libertà in povertà all’opulenza nella schiavitù”.
Sylvanus Olympio, il primo presidente della Repubblica del Togo, un piccolo paese in Africa occidentale, trovò una soluzione a metà strada con i francesi. Non voleva che il suo paese continuasse ad essere un dominio francese, perciò rifiutò di siglare il patto di continuazione della colonizzazione proposto da de Gaulle, tuttavia si accordò per pagare un debito annuale alla Francia per i cosiddetti benefici ottenuti dal Togo grazie alla colonizzazione francese. Era l’unica condizione affinché i francesi non distruggessero tutto prima di lasciare il paese. Tuttavia, l’ammontare chiesto dalla Francia era talmente elevato che il rimborso del cosiddetto “debito coloniale” si aggirava al 40% del debito del paese nel 1963. La situazione finanziaria del neo-indipendente Togo era veramente instabile; così, per risolvere la situazione, Olympio decise di uscire dalla moneta coloniale francese Fcfa (il Franco Cfa delle colonie africane francesi), e coniò la moneta del suo paese. Il 13 gennaio 1963, tre giorni dopo aver iniziato a stampare la moneta del suo paese, uno squadrone di soldati analfabeti appoggiati dalla Francia uccise il primo presidente eletto della neo- indipendente Africa.
Olympio fu ucciso da un ex sergente della Legione Straniera di nome Etienne Gnassingbe, che si suppone ricevette un compenso di 612 dollari dalla locale ambasciata francese per il lavoro di assassino. Il sogno di Olympio era quello di costruire un paese indipendente e autosufficiente. Tuttavia ai francesi non piaceva l’idea. Il 30 giugno 1962, Modiba Keita, il primo presidente della Repubblica del Mali, decise di uscire dalla moneta coloniale francese Fcfa imposta a 12 neo-indipendenti paesi africani. Per il presidente maliano, che era più incline ad un’economia socialista, era chiaro che il patto di continuazione della colonizzazione con la Francia era una trappola, un fardello per lo sviluppo del paese. Il 19 novembre 1968, proprio come Olympio, Keita fu vittima di un colpo di stato guidato da un altro ex soldato della Legione Straniera francese, il luogotenente Moussa Traoré. Infatti durante quel turbolento periodo in cui gli africani lottavano per liberarsi dalla colonizzazione europea, la Francia usò ripetutamente molti ex legionari stranieri per guidare colpi di stato contro i presidente eletti.
Il 1° gennaio 1966, Jean-Bédel Bokassa, un ex soldato francese della Legione Straniera, guidò un colpo di stato contro David Dacko, il primo presidente della Repubblica Centrafricana. Il 3 gennaio 1966, Maurice Yaméogo, il primo presidente della Repubblica dell’Alto Volta, oggi Burkina Faso, fu vittima di un colpo di stato condotto da Aboubacar Sangoulé Lamizana, un ex legionario francese che combatté con i francesi in Indonesia e Algeria contro le indipendenze di quei paesi. Il 26 ottobre 1972, Mathieu Kérékou (che era una guardia del corpo del presidente Hubert Maga, il primo presidente della Repubblica del Benin) guidò un colpo di Stato contro il presidente, dopo aver frequentato le scuole militari francesi dal 1968 al 1970. Negli ultimi 50 anni, un totale di 67 colpi di Stato si sono susseguiti in 26 paesi africani; 16 di quest’ultimi sono ex colonie francesi, il che significa che il 61% dei colpi di Stato si sono verificati nell’Africa francofona.
Cinque i golpe subiti dal Burkina Faso e dalle Comore, quattro i colpi di Stato attuati in Burundi, Repubblica Centrafricana, Niger e Mauritania. Sempre tra le ex colonie francesi, hanno vissuto almeno tre colpi di Stato il Congo e il Ciad – due, invece, l’Algeria e il Mali, la Guinea Konakry e la Repubblica Democratica del Congo. Almeno un violento “regime change” ha poi investito Togo, Tunisia, Costa d’Avorio, Magagascar e Rwanda. Altri paesi africani sottoposti a colpi di Stato sono Egitto, Libia e Guinea Equatoriale (un golpe ciascuno), Guinea Bissau e Liberia (due golpe), Nigeria ed Etiopia (tre colpi di Stato), Uganda (quattro) e Sudan (cinque). In totale 45 golpe nell’Africa ex francese, più 22 in altri paesi africani. Come dimostrano questi numeri, la Francia è abbastanza disperata ma attiva nel tenere sotto controllo le sue colonie, a qualsiasi prezzo, a qualsiasi condizione. Nel marzo del 2008, l’ex presidente francese Jacques Chirac disse: «Senza l’Africa, la Francia scivolerebbe a livello di una potenza del terzo mondo». Il predecessore di Chirac, François Mitterand, già nel 1957 profetizzava che «senza l’Africa, la Francia non avrà storia nel 21° secolo».
Proprio in questo momento, 14 paesi africani sono costretti dalla Francia, attraverso un patto coloniale, a depositare l’85% delle loro riserve di valute estere nella Banca Centrale Francese controllata dal ministero delle finanze di Parigi. Finora, il Togo e altri 13 paesi africani dovranno pagare un debito coloniale alla Francia. I leader africani che rifiutano vengono uccisi o restano vittime di colpi di Stato. Coloro che obbediscono sono sostenuti e ricompensati dalla Francia con stili di vita faraonici, mentre le loro popolazioni vivono in estrema povertà e disperazione. E’ un sistema malvagio, denunciato dall’Unione Europea; ma la Francia non è pronta a spostarsi da quel sistema coloniale che muove 500 miliardi di dollari dall’Africa al suo ministero del Tesoro ogni anno. Spesso accusiamo i leader africani di corruzione e di servire gli interessi delle nazioni occidentali, ma c’è una chiara spiegazione per questo comportamento. Si comportano così perché hanno paura di essere uccisi o di restare vittime di un colpo di Stato. Vogliono una nazione potente che li difenda in caso di aggressione o di tumulti. Ma, contrariamente alla protezione di una nazione amica, la protezione dell’Occidente spesso viene offerta in cambio della rinuncia, da parte di quei leader, di servire il loro stesso popolo e i suoi interessi.
I leader africani lavorerebbero nell’interesse dei loro popoli se non fossero continuamente inseguiti e provocati dai paesi colonialisti. Nel 1958, spaventato dalle conseguenze di scegliere l’indipendenza dalla Francia, Leopold Sédar Senghor dichiarò: «La scelta del popolo senegalese è l’indipendenza; vogliono che ciò accada in amicizia con la Francia, non in disaccordo». Da quel momento in poi la Francia accettò soltanto un’ “indipendenza sulla carta” per le sue colonie, siglando “Accordi di Cooperazione”, specificando la natura delle loro relazioni con la Francia, in particolare i legami con la moneta coloniale francese (il franco), il sistema educativo francese, le preferenze militari e commerciali. Qui sotto ci sono le 11 principali componenti del patto di continuazione della colonizzazione dagli anni ‘50.
#1. Debito coloniale a vantaggio della colonizzazione francese. I neo “indipendenti” paesi dovrebbero pagare per l’infrastruttura costruita dalla Francia nel paese durante la colonizzazione. #2. Confisca automatica delle riserve nazionali. I paesi africani devono depositare le loro riserve monetarie nazionali nella banca centrale francese. La Francia detiene le riserve nazionali di 14 paesi africani dal 1961: Benin, Burkina Faso, Guinea-Bissau, Costa d’Avorio, Mali, Niger, Senegal, Togo, Camerun, Repubblica Centrafricana, Ciad, Congo-Brazzaville, Guinea Equatoriale e Gabon. La politica monetaria che governa un gruppo di paesi così diversi non è complicato perché, di fatto, è decisa dal ministero del Tesoro francese senza rendere conto a nessuna autorità fiscale di qualsiasi paese che sia della Cedeao (la Comunità degli Stati dell’Africa Occidentale) o del Cemac (Comunità degli Stati dell’Africa Centrale). In base alle clausole dell’accordo che ha fondato queste banche e il Cfa, la banca centrale di ogni paese africano è obbligata a detenere almeno il 65% delle proprie riserve valutarie estere in un “operations account” registrato presso il ministero del Tesoro francese, più un altro 20% per coprire le passività finanziarie.
Le banche centrali del Cfa impongono anche un tappo sul credito esteso ad ogni paese membro equivalente al 20% delle entrate pubbliche dell’anno precedente. Anche se la Beac e la Bceao hanno un fido bancario col Tesoro francese, i prelievi da quel fido sono soggetti al consenso dello stesso ministero del Tesoro. L’ultima parola spetta al Tesoro francese, che ha investito le riserve estere degli Stati africani alla Borsa di Parigi a proprio nome. In breve, più dell’ 80% delle riserve valutarie straniere di questi paesi africani sono depositate in “operations accounts” controllati dal Tesoro francese. Le due banche Cfa sono africane di nome, ma non hanno una politica monetaria propria. Gli stessi paesi non sanno, né viene detto loro, quanto del bacino delle riserve valutarie estere detenute presso il ministero del Tesoro a Parigi appartiene a loro come gruppo o individualmente. Gli introiti degli investimenti di questi fondi presso il Tesoro francese dovrebbero essere aggiunti al conteggio, ma non c’è nessuna notizia che venga fornita al riguardo né alle banche né ai paesi circa i dettagli di questi scambi. Al ristretto gruppo di alti ufficiali del ministero del Tesoro francese che conoscono le cifre detenute negli “operations accounts”, sanno dove vengono investiti questi fondi e se esiste un profitto a partire da quegli investimenti, viene impedito di parlare per comunicare queste informazioni alle banche Cfa o alle banche centrali degli stati africani, scrive il dottor Gary K. Busch (economista, docente universitario a Londra).
Si stima che la Francia detenga all’incirca 500 miliardi di monete provenienti dagli Stati africani, e farebbe qualsiasi cosa per combattere chiunque voglia fare luce su questo lato oscuro del vecchio impero. Gli stati africani non hanno accesso a quel denaro. La Francia permette loro di accedere soltanto al 15% di quel denaro all’anno. Se avessero bisogno di più, dovrebbero chiedere in prestito una cifra extra dal loro stesso 65% da Tesoro francese a tariffe commerciali. Per rendere le cose ancora peggiori, la Francia impone un cappio sull’ammontare di denaro che i paesi possono chiedere in prestito da quella riserva. Il cappio è fissato al 20% delle entrate pubbliche dell’anno precedente. Se i paesi volessero prestare più del 20% dei loro stessi soldi, la Francia ha diritto di veto. L’ex presidente francese Jacques Chirac ha detto recentemente qualcosa circa i soldi delle nazioni africane detenuti nelle banche francesi. In un VIDEO parla dello schema di sfruttamento francese. Parla in francese, ma questo è un piccolo sunto: «Dobbiamo essere onesti e riconoscere che una gran parte dei soldi nelle nostre banche provengono dallo sfruttamento del continente africano».
#3. Diritto di primo rifiuto su qualsiasi materia prima o risorsa naturale scoperta nel paese. La Francia ha il primo diritto di comprare qualsiasi risorsa naturale trovate nella terra delle sue ex colonie. Solo dopo un “Non sono interessata” della Francia, i paesi africani hanno il permesso di cercare altri partners. #4. Priorità agli interessi francesi e alle società negli appalti pubblici. Nei contratti governativi, le società francesi devono essere prese in considerazione per prime e, solo dopo, questi paesi possono guardare altrove. Non importa se i paesi africani possono ottenere un miglior servizio ad un prezzo migliore altrove. Di conseguenza, in molte delle ex colonie francesi, tutti i maggiori asset economici dei paesi sono nelle mani degli espatriati francesi. In Costa d’Avorio, per esempio, le società francesi possiedono e controllano le più importanti utilities – acqua, elettricità, telefoni, trasporti, porti e le più importanti banche. Lo stesso nel commercio, nelle costruzioni e in agricoltura. Infine, come ho scritto in un precedente articolo, “gli africani ora vivono in un continente di proprietà degli europei”.
#5. Diritto esclusivo a fornire equipaggiamento militare e formazione ai quadri militari del paese. Attraverso un sofisticato schema di borse di studio e “Accordi di Difesa” allegati al Patto Coloniale, gli africani devono inviare i loro quadri militari per la formazione in Francia o in strutture gestite dai francesi. La situazione nel continente adesso è che la Francia ha formato centinaia, anche migliaia di traditori e li foraggia. Restano dormienti quando non c’è bisogno di loro, e vengono riattivati quando è necessario un colpo di Stato o per qualsiasi altro scopo! #6. Diritto della Francia di inviare le proprie truppe e intervenire militarmente nel paese per difendere i propri interessi. In base a qualcosa chiamato “Accordi di Difesa” allegati al Patto Coloniale, la Francia ha il diritto di intervenire militarmente negli Stati africani e anche di stazionare truppe permanentemente nelle basi e nei presidi militari in quei paesi, gestiti interamente dai francesi.
Poi ci sono le basi militari francesi in Africa. Quando il presidente Laurent Gbagbo della Costa d’Avorio cercò di porre fine allo sfruttamento francese del paese, la Francia organizzò un colpo di Stato. Durante il lungo processo per estromettere Gbagbo, i carri armati francesi, gli elicotteri d’attacco e le forze speciali intervennero direttamente nel conflitto sparando sui civili e uccidendone molti. Per aggiungere gli insulti alle ingiurie, la Francia stima che la “business community” francese abbia perso diversi milioni di dollari quando, nella fretta di abbandonare Abidjan nel 2006, l’esercito francese massacrò 65 civili disarmati, ferendone altri 1.200. Dopo il successo della Francia con il colpo di Stato, e il trasferimento di poteri ad Alassane Outtara, la Francia ha chiesto al governo Ouattara di pagare un compenso alla “business community” francese per le perdite durante la guerra civile. Il governo Ouattara, infatti, pagò il doppio delle perdite dichiarate mentre scappavano.
#7. Obbligo di dichiarare il francese lingua ufficiale del paese e lingua del sistema educativo. “Oui, Monsieur. Vous devez parlez français, la langue de Molière!” (sì, signore. Dovete parlare francese, la lingua di Molière!). Un’organizzazione per la diffusione della lingua e della cultura francese chiamata “Francophonie” è stata creata con diverse organizzazioni satellite e affiliati supervisionati dal ministero degli esteri francese. Come dimostrato in quest’articolo, se il francese è l’unica lingua che parli, hai accesso al solo 4% dell’umanità, del sapere e delle idee. Molto limitante.
#8. Obbligo di usare la moneta coloniale francese Fcfa. Questa è la vera mucca d’oro della Francia, tuttavia è un sistema talmente malefico che finanche l’Unione Europea lo ha denunciato. La Francia però non è pronta a lasciar perdere il sistema coloniale che inietta all’incirca 500 miliardi di dollari africani nelle sue casse. Durante l’introduzione dell’euro in Europa, altri paesi europei scoprirono il sistema di sfruttamento francese. Molti, soprattutto i paesi nordici, furono disgustati e suggerirono che la Francia abbandonasse quel sistema. Senza successo. #9. Obbligo di inviare in Francia il budget annuale e il report sulle riserve. Senza report, niente soldi. In ogni caso il ministero delle banche centrali delle ex colonie, e il ministero dell’incontro biennale dei ministri delle finanze delle ex colonie è controllato dalla banca centrale francese e dal ministero del Tesoro.
#10. Rinuncia a siglare alleanze militari con qualsiasi paese se non autorizzati dalla Francia. I paesi africani in genere sono quelli che hanno il minor numero di alleanze militari regionali. La maggior parte dei paesi ha solo alleanze militari con gli ex colonizzatori (divertente, ma si può fare di meglio!). Nel caso delle ex colonie francesi, la Francia proibisce loro di cercare altre alleanze militari eccetto quelle che vengono offerte loro. #11. Obbligo di allearsi con la Francia in caso di guerre o crisi globali. Più di un milione di soldati africani hanno combattuto per sconfiggere il nazismo e il fascismo durante la Seconda Guerra Mondiale. Il loro contributo è spesso ignorato o minimizzato, ma se si pensa che alla Germania furono sufficienti solo 6 settimane per sconfiggere la Francia nel 1940, quest’ultima sa che gli africani potrebbero essere utili per combattere per la “Grandeur de la France” in futuro.
C’è qualcosa di psicopatico nel rapporto che la Francia ha con l’Africa. Primo, la Francia è molto dedita al saccheggio e allo sfruttamento dell’Africa sin dai tempi della schiavitù. Poi c’è questa mancanza di creatività e di immaginazione dell’élite francese a pensare oltre i confini del passato e della tradizione. Infine, la Francia ha due istituzioni che sono completamente congelate nel passato, abitate da “haut fonctionnaires” paranoici e psicopatici che diffondono la paura dell’apocalisse se la Francia cambiasse, e il cui riferimento ideologico deriva dal romanticismo del 19° secolo: sono il ministero delle finanze e del bilancio e il ministero degli affari esteri. Queste due istituzioni non solo sono una minaccia per l’Africa ma anche per gli stessi francesi. Tocca a noi africani liberarci, senza chiedere permesso, perché ancora non riesco a capire, per esempio, come possano 450 soldati francesi in Costa d’Avorio controllare una popolazione di 20 milioni di persone. La prima reazione della gente, subito dopo aver saputo della tassa coloniale francese, consiste in una domanda: “Fino a quando?”. Per paragone storico, la Francia ha costretto Haiti a pagare l’equivalente odierno di 21 miliardi di dollari dal 1804 al 1947 (quasi un secolo e mezzo) per le perdite subite dai commercianti di schiavi francesi dall’abolizione della schiavitù e la liberazione degli schiavi haitiani. I paesi africani stanno pagando la tassa coloniale solo negli ultimi 50 anni, perciò penso che manchi ancora un secolo di pagamenti!
(Mawuna Remarque Koutonin, “Quattordici paesi africani costretti a pagare la tassa coloniale francese”, da “Africa News” dell’8 febbraio 2014).

Sapevate che molti paesi africani continuano a pagare una tassa coloniale alla Francia dalla loro indipendenza fino ad oggi? Quando Sékou Touré della Guinea decise nel 1958 di uscire dall’impero coloniale francese, e optò per l’indipendenza del paese, l’élite coloniale francese a Parigi andò su tutte le furie e, con uno storico gesto, l’amministrazione francese della Guinea distrusse qualsiasi cosa che nel paese rappresentasse quelli che definivano i vantaggi della colonizzazione francese. Tremila francesi lasciarono il paese, prendendo tutte le proprietà e distruggendo qualsiasi cosa che non si muovesse: scuole, ambulatori, immobili dell’amministrazione pubblica furono distrutti; macchine, libri, strumenti degli istituti di ricerca, trattori furono sabotati; i cavalli e le mucche nelle fattorie furono uccisi, e le derrate alimentari nei magazzini furono bruciate o avvelenate. L’obiettivo di questo gesto indegno era quello di mandare un messaggio chiaro a tutte le altre colonie: il costo di rigettare la Francia sarebbe stato molto alto. Lentamente la paura serpeggiò tra le élite africane e nessuno, dopo gli eventi della Guinea, trovò mai il coraggio di seguire l’esempio di Sékou Touré, il cui slogan fu “Preferiamo la libertà in povertà all’opulenza nella schiavitù”.

          Pasien Kanker Ini Bahagia Dipeluk Lisa Blackpink      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Liputan6.com, Jakarta Keinginan Intan Khasanah untuk bertemu dengan Lisa Blackpink akhirnya terwujud. Lewat dance cover-nya yang dipilih oleh Shopee, wanita yang tengah berjuang melawan kanker ini bisa bertemu langsung dengan salah satu anggota termuda Blackpink ini.

Walaupun hanya bertemu sebentar, Intan mengaku tidak pernah menyangka bisa bertemu dengan Lisa Blackpink dan memeluknya. Dalam fan meeting Lisa Blackpink, Intan bisa berbicara dan mencurahkan isi hatinya langsung kepada sang idola.

Intan  juga merasa bahagia menerima perlakuan yang begitu baik dari pelantun "Ddu-Du Ddu-du" ini.

"Dia bahkan yang duluan meluk aku. Kan aku takut ya terlalu banyak kontak fisik atau gimana. Terus dia langsung peluk aku terus nggak pernah lepas ya senyumnya dari mukanya dia," tutur Intan saat ditemui di Mall Kota Kasablanka, Kamis (9/8/2018).

Tak hanya itu, Intan juga mengaku bahagia karena video covernya ditonton langsung oleh Lisa Blackpink dan juga ketiga rekannya. Tak hanya Blackpink, video cover Intan ini juga menarik perhatian staf YG Entertaiment.

Ia diketahui sedang berjuang melawan Hodgkin's Lymphoma, atau sejenis kanker kelenjar getah bening stadium empat.

Melalui unggahannya di media sosial, Intan dibantu oleh para K-Popers untuk meminta kehadirannya pada acara Meet & Greet dengan Lisa yang diadakan 9 Agustus 2018, kemarin. Pihak Shopee kemudian mengetahui hal tersebut dan menjawab keinginan Intan. Shopee memberikan 2 tiket meet & greet kepada Intan untuk bertemu langsung dengan sang idola.

          Sea pirates attack on crude oil tankers rise      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Sea pirates attack on crude oil tankers rise
The upswing in crude oil prices in the global market may have triggered sharp rise in pirates’ attacks on crude oil tankers in the Gulf of Guinea.
As at yesterday, Bonny light was $73, Brent crude was $72.50. This marks a significant increase from about $55 same period last year.
Latest report from security services company, EOS Risk Group, showed that Nigerian pirates kidnapped 35 seafarers from vessels in the Gulf of Guinea between January and June 2018.
The number of sailors removed from vessels and held for ransom was the same as witnessed during the first half (H1) of 2017, but the report indicated that the spate of attacks on tanker vessels had increased drastically.
According to the report: “Petro-piracy had been dormant for the past two years with only two attempted hijack for oil theft cases reported, but it seems to have returned to the area with the hijacking of the UK-flagged, MT Barrett in Cotonou Anchorage, Benin, on January 10, 2018. The attack, which played out over seven days, saw the pirates siphon off around 2,000MT of gasoline from the tanker via a ship-to-ship transfer (STS) within the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) of Ghana. Following the hijacking of the MT Barrett, pirates attacked three other tankers in Cotonou anchorage in February 2018,”
After a lull in piracy activity off Benin since 2012, EOS recorded seven pirate attacks in the waters of Nigeria’s western neighbour in H1 2018.
The attacks involved several successful tanker hijackings, one of which resulted in the loss of 2,000 tonnes of product. Nigerian pirates also allegedly operated in Ghanaian waters in April, kidnapping five seafarers from two vessels.
Senior Intelligence Analyst at EOS Risk, Jake Longworth, said: “Most concerning this year has been the resurgence of ‘petro-piracy,’ involving the hijacking of tankers for oil theft. The return of petro-piracy has been accompanied by an associated increase in the geographical reach of Nigerian pirate gangs, leading to attacks in the waters of Benin, and Ghana. 95 per cent of attacks we recorded in Nigerian waters occurred near Bonny Island, within 60 nautical miles of the shore. Pirates operating in these waters are focused on the kidnap of seafarers for ransom.”
Longworth said the main threat is still found off the restive Niger Delta, specifically on the approaches to ports and oil terminals in the vicinity of Port Harcourt. It was in this area that heavily armed pirates kidnapped 11 seafarers from the Dutch general cargo vessel, FWN Rapidein, April. This is the highest number of hostages taken by a Nigerian pirate group in a single attack.
Head of Special Risks at EOS, Steven Harwood, who covers kidnap for ransom response, said there are two main pirate gangs in Nigeria, both employing around 16 full time pirates.
He continued: “One is located in the creeks near Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, and the other around Abonnema, Rivers State. Both gangs are in communication, and sometimes subcontract the physical hostage taking to other criminal groups. Since the turn of the Century, this pattern has been visible in Nigeria, ahead of major election periods, evidence of the complex links between piracy and political conflict in the Niger Delta.”
EOS warned that instability in the Niger Delta is likely to increase in the run up to Nigeria’s 2019 general elections, which could result in a spike in piracy activity.
To mitigate the risk of attack, EOS recommended Masters implement Global Counter Piracy Guidance (GCPG) measures, and familiarise themselves with the Guidelines for Owners,
Operators and Masters for protection against piracy in the Gulf of Guinea region – version 3, June 2018.”
Where additional protection is required, shipping companies may require armed escort vessels, and embarked guards where domestic law permits.
The International Maritime Bureau (IMB), had earlier said a number of crew members were taken hostage, which increased from 63 in H1 2017 to 102 a year after.
The report said all 2018 crew kidnappings took place in the Gulf of Guinea in six separate incidents, while a total of 107 incidents were reported to the IMB Piracy Reporting Centre (PRC) during the six-month period.
In total, 69 vessels were boarded, with 23 attempted attacks, 11 vessels fired upon and four vessels hijacked. No vessels were reported as hijacked in the second quarter.
The number of crew kidnappings decreased from 41 by the second quarter in 2017 to 25 in 2018. However, all 25 crew kidnappings reported this year, occurred over six incidents in the Gulf of Guinea, highlighting the higher risks in this area.

          Re: Sightseen Naked Men @ Rivers      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
I've seen young men bathing naked on beaches along the Ghana coast especially in Accra and the West Coast. I have also seen men bathing naked outside a bath house near Grace Jones Hotel at Labadi first step junction in Accra. They paid a small fee to the attendant, were given a large enamel basin full of water, soap and flannel and they all stood outside in full view of passers by on the main road, pouring water on themselves with a plastic bowl, soaping down their naked bodies, washing their cocks, balls, assholes etc and it was all normality, no one was taking a blind bit of notice. Then one of the bathers saw a pretty young lady walking past and he got a spontaneous erection, called out to her endearingly and began swinging his long soapy erection in a very provocative manner but he lady just turned her face in the opposite direction, did her best to ignore him and walked past as quickly as she could looking quite embarrassed and feeling harassed. Of course I had a very good look, laughed and enjoyed the view as I walked past feeling my cock rising & precum wetting my boxer shorts. So, I recommend Ghana for that but I heard that other African countries are similar, especially Kenya which has many quiet or isolated beaches not much visited by tourists where you can meet very well endowed guys and enjoy hot sex in a lot of hiding places... Beaches in Togo and Benin are probably equally as good. In some landlocked countries you will also have riverside and lakeside beaches where you will see naked guys bathing. Ghana too has a lakeside beach in it's Eastern Region which I hope to try out on my next visit there. Have fun!

From www gvnet.com I transfer the fllowing passage.

Human Trafficking and Modern-day Slavery

The Gambia is a source, transit, and destination country for children and women trafficked for the purposes of forced labor and commercial sexual exploitation. Within The Gambia, women and girls, and to a lesser extent boys, are trafficked for sexual exploitation, in particular to meet the demand for European sex tourism, and for domestic servitude. Boys are trafficked within the country for forced begging by religious teachers and for street vending. Transnationally, women, girls and boys from neighboring countries are trafficked to The Gambia for the same purposes listed above. Primary source countries are Senegal, Mali, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Ghana, Nigeria, Guinea-Bissau, Guinea and Benin. Trafficking of Gambian boys to Senegal for forced begging and Senegalese boys to The Gambia for the same purpose is particularly prevalent. Gambian women and girls are trafficked to Senegal for domestic servitude, and possibly for sexual exploitation. Gambian women and children may be trafficked to Europe through trafficking schemes disguised as migrant smuggling. Reports in the last two years of Gambian, Senegalese, and nationals of other neighboring countries being transported from The Gambia to Spain by boat appear to be predominantly cases of smuggling rather than trafficking. - U.S. State Dept Trafficking in Persons Report, June, 2008 [
          Наталья_Костянова: Диана Арбенина сделала «криминальное заявление»       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
https://www.mk.ru/culture/2...lenie.html

«Поэт в России больше, чем поэт» — Диана Арбенина во время нашего интервью последовательно, беспощадно и даже как-то злорадно разрушала мою святую веру в этот афоризм, отвергая и отрицая все подтексты, скрытые смыслы, фиги в кармане, которые я годами выискивал и которыми сладостно наслаждался в песнях «Ночных Снайперов» с тех пор, когда прицельными и точными выстрелами они сокрушили «31 й Весной» все мишени хит-парадов, заявив о том, что пришли всерьез и надолго. Тогда, на рубеже веков, это вообще было каким-то повальным трендом: та же Земфира, Дима Билан… Нет, конечно, если мы сейчас пролистаем чартовые сводки 2000–2001 годов, то обнаружим и массу имен, канувших в Лету. Но в «Снайперов» помимо их собственных амбиций поверилось как-то сразу. И эта вера оправдалась. Придя, они уже никуда не исчезали.

Женщины в рок-н-ролле — вид если не вымирающий, то достаточно редкий, поэтому каждое явление обречено на внимание, более пристальное, заинтересованное и, если повезет, восторженное. «Снайперов» с их исповедальным, напористым, свежим, будто весенний колючий бриз магаданского взморья, рок-н-роллом встретили восторженно, и только сейчас выясняется, что сама Диана Арбенина чуть ли не стыдится того премьерного альбома «Рубеж»…

 

Премьерного условно, поскольку с 1993 года, когда 25 лет назад институция «Ночных Снайперов» учредилась, они настойчиво выстреливали музыкальными пулями, первые неизданный альбом так и назывался «Вторая Пуля». Куда делась первая, не знает никто, включая самих «Ночных Снайперов»... Но это была другая реальность, даже музыкально-акустическая, артпоготовка и разгон перед победным блицкригом начала XXI века.

А еще раньше, в 80 е, Диана начинала с песен Окуджавы, Высоцкого, пока еще не было собственного авторского багажа. Пела с удовольствием эстрадные хиты, вроде «По ниточке» Ольги Зарубиной или «Все пройдет» Михаила Боярского. «Я ребенок Советского Союза, — поясняет г жа Арбенина, — поэтому никогда не было отторжения той музыки: советская эстрада, итальянская эстрада, «Белые розы», «Музыка нас связала»… Каково, а?! Фанатка «Миража» и «Ласкового мая»!..

Все было хорошо, пока не началась война с Украиной. Сказать, что ее жертвами пали и музыканты, было бы омерзительным богохульством, учитывая десятки тысяч реально убитых, но снарядами и шрапнелью изрядно побило и музыкальный огород. В разгар самых кровавых боев, в июле 2014 года, Диана выступила в Киеве, высказав там некие пацифистские мысли, сущая безделица на фоне того же Макаревича, клокотавшего негодованием, но и этого было достаточно, чтобы чудную Диану определили здесь во «враги России». Всегда смазанный в этой стране маховик «мочилова и давилова» обрушился на артистку всей своей безрассудной, бессмысленной, страшной мощью. Тотальная блокировка эфиров, более 30 отмененных, сорванных, запрещенных выступлений — в общем, all inclusive.

Но всех, как известно, не замочишь. Читатели «МК» солидарным голосованием признали в те дни Арбенину «Персоной года». Я с удовольствием вручал эту награду певице и музыканту на церемонии ZD Awards 23 февраля 2015 года в Кремле. Это был мощный, знаковый демарш, учитывая место, дату ивента и то, что это стало фактически первым прорывом инфоблокады благодаря телевизионной трансляции! «Не ожидала!» — сказала тогда со сцены потрясенная Диана, принимая награду.

С тех пор от нее вроде отвязались. Альбом «Выживут Только Влюбленные», пронзительный, мощный, глубокий, щедро раскрашенный насыщенными музыкальными и поэтическими красками, вышедший в 2016 году, стал и по ощущениям самой Арбениной, и по мнению многих наблюдателей высшей на сегодня точкой в творческой эволюции музыканта, поэта и ее группы. Насколько на это повлияли недавние события — вопрос риторический и философский, но, как пелось в гениальной песне, «ничто на земле не проходит бесследно».

Творческие выстрелы «Ночных Снайперов», как и прежде, точны и выверенны. Новые песни, проекты, записи, съемки, эфиры. Только что пришла «духоподъемная» новость: клип «Инстаграм», снятый режиссером Валерией Гай Германикой, получил приз в номинации «Лучшее музыкальное видео» на Пражском международном кинофестивале. Стало быть, слава «Снайперов» перешла не только границы ближнего, но и дальнего зарубежья. Виват!

 

На юбилейное интервью по случаю 25 летия группы мы собрались после эмоциональной телетрансляции концерта на крыше — пленэр с живописным видом на вечереющую Москву! В общем, все у Дианы сейчас пучком, но первые эмоции в начале разговора все равно ушли в воспоминания о той знаковой церемонии ZD Awards:

— «Звуковая дорожка» по итогам 2014 года — очень яркое воспоминание для меня до сих пор… В моей жизни это был год фальсификации. Когда мои слова неверно интерпретировали, ты один из очень немногих людей, кто протянул тогда мне руку. Все было очень серьезно, на уровне того, что мне уже запрещали читать стихи…

От меня бежали как от чумы

— Порядка тридцати выступлений у тебя тогда отменилось, не так ли?

— Да. Я выступала в Киеве с сольником и сказала, что музыканты должны поддержать своих поклонников, где бы они ни жили. Мы играем музыку людям любой национальности, гражданства, я их не делю как тогда, так и сейчас…

— Тебя тогда вознамерились за это сжечь — не как ведьму, а как лютую вражину. Однако читатели «МК» признали тебя «Персоной года», подразумевая, конечно, не только творческие достижения, но и твои человеческие поступки…

— Помню, я летела тогда из Сочи в Москву и жутко заболела. Мои люди звонили тебе, говорили: она не может быть на церемонии. Ты настаивал.

— Не то что настаивал. О твоей награде было бы объявлено в любом случае, но приятнее и торжественнее при личном присутствии.

— Для меня это было действительно очень важно в тот момент и выстрадано. В тот год очень многие люди проверились.

— Неужели так драматично? Пропаганда, конечно, ошалела, но люди-то вокруг тебя, полагаю, понимали, что к чему, не так ли?

— Ой-ёй, что ты! От меня просто как от чумы тогда бежали, шарахались — и журналисты, и очень многие близкие мне люди. А я была в обессиленном состоянии — из-за болезни, от самой ситуации. Мне важно было такое проявление тепла, отношения.

— В отличие от попавшего таким же куром в ощип в то же время и по тому же украинскому поводу Андрея Макаревича от тебя, к счастью, довольно быстро отстали. Чем ты это объясняешь?

— А я это объясняю настолько просто, что, может быть, это даже неинтересно. Думаю, что и тогда и вообще всегда нужны какие-то поводы, какие-то новости, то, что принято сейчас называть хайпом. И сроку этому хайпу, понятно, было несколько месяцев. Потом стало неинтересно, и переключились на что-то другое. Все, как в Зазеркалье, таинственным и непостижимым образом стало как-то восстанавливаться. Я подумала: как же так?! Я же ничего не поменяла, во мне ничего не изменилось, я как поддерживала людей, так их и поддерживаю, я как считала, что нельзя делить людей на национальности, так и считаю. Мы с тех пор сыграли в таком количестве стран, городов...

— И в Украине?

— Нет. Я по-прежнему очень классно отношусь к людям, которые там живут. Но пока мне боязно туда ехать, потому что я очень боюсь каких-то нелепых для себя подстав.

— Подстав?

— Ну представь, что какой-нибудь радикал выскочит на сцену, выкрикнет какой-нибудь лозунг, к которому я не имею никакого отношения, и меня опять подставят. Я этого не хочу.

— Мало ли кто и что выкрикивает. Однажды на тебя уже навесили всех собак. Все-таки, несмотря ни на какую личную независимость, даже тебе приходится учитывать адекватность восприятия или, скорее, отсутствие таковой на этой территории, да?

— Тогда в Киеве я сказала зрителям, что сочувствую им, поскольку они оказались не в том месте и не в то время. Первыми, кто все это перевернул, были украинские СМИ. А потом подхватили наши.

— И запрещать тебя стали именно «наши». Кто бы что ни перевернул!

— Ну это да, конечно.

Песни вне времени

— К счастью, у тебя все это в прошлом. У Макаревича пока с переменным успехом, но хуже, чем у тебя. У него есть песня «Время большой нелюбви». Твой последний альбом называется «Выживут только влюбленные». Если выстроить между ними логическую цепочку, то получается, что никто уже не выживет?

— Я не усматриваю здесь никакой переклички. Для меня вся эта ситуация выглядела совершенно дикой, потому что у меня-то очень-очень женские любовные песни. «Время большой нелюбви» — для меня слишком общая фраза. Она больше из области того, что нас окружает, новостей, событий, перемен. А «выживут только влюбленные» — фраза, которая касается только двоих людей: меня и того человека, в которого я была тогда влюблена и благодаря которому написала все эти песни. Я пишу только о любви, я не пишу о каких-то событиях, у меня не получается. Я не пыталась, потому что знаю, что это будет вранье. Люди почувствуют, что это конъюнктура. А я очень сильно ценю людей, которые приходят на концерты. Публика — это барометр, она понимает даже то, что порой ты и сказать ей не смеешь. И если они почувствуют конъюнктуру, то перестанут мне верить. А мне бы этого, конечно, не хотелось. Поэтому у меня все песни персонифицированы, и они, конечно, женские.

— Большая поэзия часто обрастает смыслами и подтекстами, которые, как ты уверяешь, автор даже не имеет в виду, а получается гражданский эпос: «Прости нас, Господи, мы умерли вчера в последний раз!». Прямо заголовок к любой хронике текущих российских событий…

— Послушай, да пусть видят то, что хотят. Дело личное и каждого. Что касается песни «Помолчим», слова про «умерли в последний раз» оттуда, рассказываю как на духу: я же очень неуживчивая и очень крупно поссорилась в очередной раз. Это было в Новосибирске. В этом настроении я посмотрела клип Кейти Танстолл, которую очень люблю, и написала песню. Она исключительно о личном: мы постоянно ругаемся с кем-то, и если это серьезные отношения, то думаем всегда, что это фатально, в последний раз. А потом, слава богу, миримся — и отношения продолжаются. Но в тот раз я думала, что все действительно уже безвозвратно.

— Надо же! А я все-таки думал, что в свои тексты ты вкладываешь более глобальные смыслы. Хотя, наверное, отношения между отдельными людьми в чем-то сродни отношениям в социуме, поскольку, так или иначе, это тоже отношения между людьми, даже войны, революции, восстания… Оттого, видимо, и видятся в твоих песнях разные смыслы?

— Лапуля, серьезно? Слушай, если мне что-то не нравится в том, что происходит вокруг меня и в обществе, я выражаюсь не стихами, а просто и очень близко к тому, как разговаривают между собой люди. Для этого мне не нужно писать песни, и у меня достает смелости, чтобы более прямо высказываться о насущном. Это сразу видно и сразу понятно. Что касается момента творчества, то оно для меня заповедно, я не пускаю в него пошлость времени. Несмотря на то что я очень уважаю время в метафизическом его значении, оно мной довольно глубоко изучено, я про него много знаю с высоты прожитых лет и могу сказать, что мои песни не про время и вне времени вообще.

— А это нынешнее, «пошлое» время все-таки помогает или мешает твоему «заповедному» творчеству?

— Хороший вопрос, мне его никогда не задавали… Мне все равно! Душа и те чувства, которые ты испытываешь к человеку, которого полюбил, вне времени. Конечно, когда Марина Цветаева вынуждена жить в эмиграции — и страдает, это откладывает некий отпечаток на то, что она пишет. Но для любви как таковой, для землетрясения души, которое происходит в тебе, когда ты влюблен, это не имеет ровным счетом никакого значения. Ты влюбляешься в человека не потому, что он рожден в таком-то году, когда случилось еще что-то, а в самого человека. Ты им горишь беспричинно и безусловно… А мир несовершенен, да. И очень часто я чувствую себя в нем уязвимо, но не в плане каких-то социальных перипетий. Я думала, что с каждым годом мне будет легче выстраивать отношения с людьми, с социумом как таковым. Но время идет — и все так же тяжело. Я очень сложно себя объясняю. С течением времени я замечаю, что мне уже и разговаривать не хочется. У меня очень мало тех людей, с которыми мне было бы интересно. Я понимаю, что я полная одиночка. Принимать в себе это тоже тяжело. Но в каждом из нас такое количество пустыни и космоса, что это всегда намного интереснее, чем социум.

Шар в лузу

— У тебя есть шикарная песня «Ты дарила мне розы… и была тайной зазнобой моей». Можно, конечно, плевать на влияние времени, но мы находимся сейчас в том времени, которое крайне враждебно к людям, которые, скажем, любят «не так» — не так, как это сертифицировано, например, депутатом Милоновым и «духовными скрепами» разнузданной госпропаганды. Людям теперь становится порой опасно любить — для их безопасности, свободы и даже жизни…

— Меня, во-первых, никто не притесняет. Меня не за что притеснять. Никто не ограничивает мою свободу. Более того, мне кажется, что все эти процессы слишком раздуты.

— Раздуты?

— Понимаешь, в чем дело: я своих чувств никогда не скрывала, влюблялась в кого хотела. Да, это мое личное дело. Хотите меня принимать — принимайте, нет — до свидания…

— Но есть дети, которых третируют и даже избивают в школах, если эти несчастные вдруг выбиваются из понятий «нормы», и именно атмосфера времени провоцирует нетерпимость, злобу, агрессию… Расслабленные времена t.A.T.u. с хитом «Я сошла с ума» по всем телеканалам — давно и, похоже, безвозвратно в прошлом…

— У меня двойняшки растут, Артем и Марта, им по восемь лет сейчас. Я их учу защищаться, но не потому, что боюсь, что они, дескать, маменькины детки, а потому, что любой человек должен уметь защищаться. Это закон, абсолютно точно… Но я не помню, чтобы мне кто-то мешал выражать свои чувства.

— Тебе несказанно повезло!

— Я идеалист в этом смысле. Мне кажется, что любые искренние чувства настолько красивы, что ни у кого не поднимется рука осудить или вмешаться.

— К сожалению, еще как поднимется! В Питере только что охранка отдубасила и покидала в кутузки несколько десятков выражавших свои искренние чувства на Дворцовой…

— Ну возможно… Кстати, а ты знаешь, сколько лет этой песне, «Ты дарила мне розы»?

— Она тоже из прошлого времени… Сейчас, наверное, ни один редактор не поставит в эфир…

— Такое количество людей ее спели! Мне сегодня мама прислала видео. Поет Дмитрий Певцов с Людмилой Соколовой.

— Соколова — замечательная певица. Но если с Певцовым, то тогда акценты получаются как бы «правильные», «духоскрепные» — насчет того, кто кому дарил розы…

— А я помню, как написала эту песню. Все было очень просто. Мы играли в Питере в маленьком лектории зоопарка, и на сцену в какой-то момент вышла лет тринадцати девочка, рыжая такая, с огромными чистыми глазами, совсем школьница, и подарила… Я даже не помню, что она подарила, может, даже и не розы. И куда-то делась, никогда в жизни я ее больше не видела. Вот из этого, собственно говоря, события и впечатления получилась песня. Я подошла к пианино, открыла крышку и сыграла ее от начала до конца, а потом записала все три куплета. И мои друзья мне сказали: «Вот это дно!». — «Почему?» — опешила я. «Потому что это кабак!» Ну мы пели ее и пели, и в какой-то момент, лет через семь-восемь, представителей популярной музыки вдруг прорвало. Кто ее только не перепел! И Тишман, и Леонтьев, и Певцов, с которым мы начинали.

— Вот тебе и «кабак», если искренний, душевный, чувственный!

— Да, притом что я, конечно, играю рок-н-ролл, а тут получился такой вот шар в лузу, что называется.

Повтыкать шесть часов под техно

— Наверное, не буду оригинален, когда скажу, что «Ночные Снайперы» для меня, как и для многих, начались с песни «31 я Весна» в 2001 году. Но именно этот ваш первый всероссийский хит с альбома «Рубеж» до сих пор остается для меня одной из любимых песен. Торкнуло и до сих пор не отпускает…

— Да, Миша Козырев (редактор радио на тот момент. — А.Г.) именно эту песню посчитал той самой, которую можно поставить в эфир.

— Значит, я не один такой впечатлительный… Но «Ночным Снайперам» 25 лет. Музыкантом какого века ты себя все-таки больше ощущаешь — двадцатого или двадцать первого?

— Двадцать первого. Сейчас сделаю довольно криминальное заявление. Я изначально была шире, чем рок-н-ролл, чем этот стиль музыки в его классическом виде. У меня в песне самое главное не текст и даже не риф гитарный, а мелодия. Если есть мелодия, то, с моей точки зрения, песня может претендовать на долгосрочность, а если мелодии нет, то она обречена. И альбом «Рубеж» на самом деле провальный альбом моей группы! Это невыносимо слушать во-об-ще!

— Во те на! А я его несколько раз слушал…

— А я его… Вот включаю и выключаю сразу. Мне кажется, что песни в нем были задушены с точки зрения аранжировки, вогнаны в клише «бас–барабаны–непонятная гитара», и мелодия из-за этого оказалась погублена, обесценена. А «31 я Весна» — да, находка, она чудом уцелела. Уверена, что если бы я сейчас дала своим парням переаранжировать любую из них, то получилась бы классная песня, которую можно было бы слушать.

— Художник должен быть снедаем самоедством и строгостью к себе. Еще одно твое похвальное качество…

— Да, я зануда, и очень большая. История «Ночных Снайперов» началась для меня, человека, который сделал эту группу, не с 1993 года, а с альбома «Цунами» (2002). Это первый альбом группы, который состоялся, который вытащил из каждой песни мелодию. До «Цунами» — это был разгон, включая все 90 е, когда мы выпускали акустику со скрипкой, гитарой, вокалом. И второй альбом, который мне очень нравится, — «Выживут только влюбленные», в котором опять же аранжировки обняли, украсили и дали жизнь песням, а не погубили. Нельзя думать, что если ты рок-н-ролльщик, то, значит, давай все утопим в гитарные рифы. Я пишу разные песни, веду себя совершенно свободно: и в жизни, и в творчестве — везде. Я имею на это полное право. Более того, я совершенно никого не боюсь, и нет такого человека, который бы мне сказал: ты должна делать так. Потому что я никому ничего не должна. Я это четко понимаю.

— А ты говоришь, что музыкант XXI века! Мелодия, аранжировки, сочные гитары, чувственная поэзия — все, из чего соткано твое творчество, это же краеугольные камни рок-классики века двадцатого!

— Конечно, корнями все там. Но люди и сейчас слушают и любят песню за мелодию. Последние синглы «Разбуди меня», «Инстаграм» — люди любят эти песни, потому что они поются. Повторю: песня обречена, если в ней нет мелодии.

— Не могу удержаться тогда от ремарки: значит, весь этот новомодный, суперактуальный, раздувающийся от пафоса и помпезности русский рэп и хип-хоп со своими куцыми мелодийками обречены?

— Ну не так однозначно. Вот, к примеру, Баста, который пригласил меня петь «Сансару» с ним, звонит: «Я тут написал песню». Я перезваниваю: «Вася! Это гениальная песня, лучшая, которую ты написал! Я тебе просто завидую. Я хочу тоже написать такую песню!». У меня есть этот критерий — если слышу какую-то песню и думаю: ах, черт, не я написала! — у меня просто крышу сносит. «Сансара» — гениальнейшая песня, она о каждом! А он, между прочим, рэпер.

— Из правил бывают счастливые исключение, которые, как известно, лишь подтверждают правило…

— Ну ты как в школе — хочешь расставить все по полочкам и получить однозначный ответ… Не знаю, что останется, не останется. Некоторые любят музыку без мелодии. Они на этом и растут. Мой брат, например, вообще играет техно, прется от этого. Когда он меня отвез в этом году в Берлин на техно-фестиваль и я решила проникнуться этой культурой, он мне говорит: нельзя приходить на рэйв чистой.

— Не помывшись с дороги, что ли?

— Они так выражаются. Это значит, что надо обязательно что-то употребить. Ускоритель какой-нибудь или замедлитель… Я пришла в один из легендарных клубов, о котором они мне рассказывали битых трое суток, встала над колонкой и повтыкала шесть часов.

— Чистая?

— Конечно. Это раньше я делала в жизни много страшных вещей, сейчас это пройденный этап, я совсем другая… В общем, я была так счастлива в ту ночь от музыки, которую узнала. Мне так понравилось лежать на этой волне и думать. Просто думать, погружаться в себя. Говорю это к тому, что разные жанры предполагают разное в них участие... И вообще новое поколение мне интересно. Я построила студию и хочу писать молодых музыкантов. Нельзя думать, что сейчас какая-то странная молодежь, а вот мы были другие, более правильные и т.д.

— Все рокеры и битники в свое время сами прошли через то же самое в отношениях со старшим поколением. Рецидивы извечной коллизии «отцов и детей», да?

— У меня сейчас растут два маленьких восьмилетних инопланетянина. Я обязана их понимать, обязана дать себе труд в них въехать, понять, как любого человека. Безусловно, это труд — понять молодежь. Вот есть такой исполнитель Федук…

— Еще как есть!

— И он мне понравился, я в него въехала, понимаешь? Не модничать мне интересно, мне интересно понять, что конкретно и почему молодых людей цепляет. И я понимаю, что в этом парне есть шарм. Просто если ты себя лишаешь труда понимать другого человека, то, во-первых, ты себя ограничиваешь, а во-вторых, ты себя топишь. Потому что ты должен идти к миру, а не мир к тебе. Мир к тебе не пойдет никогда, он к тебе изначально равнодушен. Если ты слушаешь огромное количество музыки, которую выкидывает рынок, то ты в потоке. А нужно быть в потоке, но в своем потоке, иначе ты окажешься на берегу.

— Твои дети очень счастливые, раз им повезло с родителем, который стремится их понять, а не подавить и подстроить под свои представления о жизни.

— Только не подавить! Я отчасти через это прошла. Очень благодарна своей маме за это «отчасти». Потому что они не хотели музыканта, они хотели благополучную девочку, которая бы учила иностранцев русскому языку, вышла бы замуж, родила детей и улетела бы на Аляску преподавать. Я пошла наперекор и с течением времени понимаю, что, конечно, это было жесткое давилово со стороны родителей, но оно, как мы видим, принесло свои плоды. И теперь я смотрю на своих детей и все время думаю: до какой степени я могу их принять, даже не то чтобы понять, а именно принять? И я приложу максимум усилий, чтобы все-таки их защищать во всем, что бы они ни сделали. Это не миссия какая-то или мой долг, а так надо делать, так — в кайф. Ребенка нужно только любить, и все. Хотя, понятно, что дисциплина должна присутствовать, когда ты двух бандитов воспитываешь. Анархии у нас в семье нет! Я не мама, которая все позволяет, ничего подобного. Я их подстраиваю, конечно. И делаю это ежедневно, хотя порой кажется, что это сизифов труд. Если они захотят быть музыкантами, я не буду против, но перекрещусь и подумаю: боже, зачем вам это надо?! Во-первых, вы меня не переплюнете никогда, зачем тратить время? А во-вторых, в контексте музыки и сцены моя жизнь — это, конечно, жертва. Если двадцать лет назад я просто волновалась перед выходом на сцену, то сейчас падаю в обморок. Мне так страшно! Это нереально! Холодные руки, начинает все внутри стучать…

— А казалось бы, все должно быть уже на автомате…

— Вообще не на автомате! Это так странно, парадокс. И нужно очень много пройти, чтобы понять, что ты ей, сцене, служишь, а не она тебе.

— А какую музыку любят твои дети?

— Мои дети отечественную музыку не слушают. Едем, например, в машине, по радио передают Эми Уайнхауз, спрашиваю: «Кто поет?». Марта бодренько: «Эми!». «О! — думаю, — жизнь прожита не зря!»

— И мамину музыку не слушают?

— Нет, маму они слушают потому, что по маме тоскуют. Приезжаю после гастролей домой, а они, оказывается, всю акустику уже знают наизусть. Что-то спрашиваю у Темы: почему, мол, так или не так? А он мне в ответ цитатой из моей песни. И уже ни к чему не подкопаться...

Душит нелюбовь

— Помню начало взлета «Ночных Снайперов», когда вы со Светой Сургановой были еще вместе. Ваше первое выступление на фестивале «Звуковой дорожки» году, кажется, в 2002 м в Лужниках. К вам страшно было подойти — грозные, неприступные рок-фурии, этакие панкерши в своей сугубой сермяжности! Казалось, тут же в репу и схлопочешь. Мы тогда с Легостаевым страшно струхнули… А потом случилось некое смягчение, романтизация образа. И уже когда Алла Пугачева вручала тебе свою золотую звезду на телешоу «Две звезды» в 2008 м, ты была в чудном воздушном платьице, почти не выбиваясь из дресс-кода и образов гламурненького поп-мира, где пух, перья, рюшечки, все такое… Открытый добрый взгляд. В общем, няшка. Это была сознательная коррекция имиджа или эволюция внутреннего мироощущения?

— Ой, помню, как переживала Алла Борисовна по поводу того, что мы с Женей Дятловым не взяли тогда это первое место. Она, казалось, больше переживала, что мы с Женей. Сразу после объявления победителей она бросилась курить в гримерку, меня туда вызвали, она была очень расстроена. А потом вручила свою звезду. Очень тонко, конечно, это было.

— Красиво восстановила справедливость. Этих первых мест на всяких телешоу уже и не перечислить. А «Звезд Аллы» — раз-два, и обчелся... Хотя, может, тебе как рокерше и по фигу эта Аллина звезда?

— Нет, не по фигу. Я считаю Пугачеву примадонной. Для меня она певица номер один в нашей стране. А потом я хочу сказать, что Алла Борисовна — еще та рок-н-ролльщица.

— Еще какая! Но когда ты начинала мутить свой рок н ролл, то, уверен, даже в кошмарном или сладком сне не могла представить «Звезду Аллы» на своей груди…

— А нет жанров, еще раз повторяю. И рок-н-ролл — это не жанр, это душа и ее состояние… Конечно, я никогда себя не ассоциировала ни с какими перьями, это понятно. Но и с

          Vooral ING merkt val Turkse lira op beursvloer      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

De val van de Turkse munteenheid lira is ook te voelen op de Amsterdamse beurs. De AEX leverde vandaag 1,6 procent in. De grootste daler was ING. De bank verloor ruim 4 procent, wat een flinke daling is voor een zo'n groot beursfonds.

Het bedrijf voelt de val van de Turkse munt meer dan andere beursgenoteerde banken omdat het in totaal zo'n 15 miljard euro aan activiteiten heeft in Turkije. Ook andere Europese banken die in Turkije actief zijn, noteerden vandaag dieprode cijfers.

Beleggers maken zich zorgen over de economische situatie in Turkije. De waarde van de Turkse munt daalt al maanden en kelderde vandaag verder.

Instabiel

Volgens Harald Benink, hoogleraar Banking en Finance aan de universiteit van Tilburg, voelt ING de val van de munt door twee belangrijke oorzaken. Doordat de lira veel minder waard is, krijgt de bank er minder euro's voor terug.

Daarnaast is de politieke instabiliteit ook een groot risico. "Als het in Turkije uit de hand loopt, nemen de kredietrisico's ook toe. ING loopt dan risico dat leningen in Turkije niet worden terugbetaald", zegt Benink.

Toch maakt de hoogleraar zich niet zo'n grote zorgen over ING. "Het is een grote bank die in heel veel landen actief is, dus de risico's zijn gespreid." Van alle leningen die ING wereldwijd heeft uitstaan, zit 2,3 procent in Turkije.

          Re: Sightseen Naked Men @ Rivers      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
I've seen young men bathing naked on beaches along the Ghana coast especially in Accra and the West Coast. I have also seen men bathing naked outside a bath house near Grace Jones Hotel at Labadi first step junction in Accra. They paid a small fee to the attendant, were given a large enamel basin full of water, soap and flannel and they all stood outside in full view of passers by on the main road, pouring water on themselves with a plastic bowl, soaping down their naked bodies, washing their cocks, balls, assholes etc and it was all normality, no one was taking a blind bit of notice. Then one of the bathers saw a pretty young lady walking past and he got a spontaneous erection, called out to her endearingly and began swinging his long soapy erection in a very provocative manner but he lady just turned her face in the opposite direction, did her best to ignore him and walked past as quickly as she could looking quite embarrassed and feeling harassed. Of course I had a very good look, laughed and enjoyed the view as I walked past feeling my cock rising & precum wetting my boxer shorts. So, I recommend Ghana for that but I heard that other African countries are similar, especially Kenya which has many quiet or isolated beaches not much visited by tourists where you can meet very well endowed guys and enjoy hot sex in a lot of hiding places... Beaches in Togo and Benin are probably equally as good. In some landlocked countries you will also have riverside and lakeside beaches where you will see naked guys bathing. Ghana too has a lakeside beach in it's Eastern Region which I hope to try out on my next visit there. Have fun!

From www gvnet.com I transfer the fllowing passage.

Human Trafficking and Modern-day Slavery

The Gambia is a source, transit, and destination country for children and women trafficked for the purposes of forced labor and commercial sexual exploitation. Within The Gambia, women and girls, and to a lesser extent boys, are trafficked for sexual exploitation, in particular to meet the demand for European sex tourism, and for domestic servitude. Boys are trafficked within the country for forced begging by religious teachers and for street vending. Transnationally, women, girls and boys from neighboring countries are trafficked to The Gambia for the same purposes listed above. Primary source countries are Senegal, Mali, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Ghana, Nigeria, Guinea-Bissau, Guinea and Benin. Trafficking of Gambian boys to Senegal for forced begging and Senegalese boys to The Gambia for the same purpose is particularly prevalent. Gambian women and girls are trafficked to Senegal for domestic servitude, and possibly for sexual exploitation. Gambian women and children may be trafficked to Europe through trafficking schemes disguised as migrant smuggling. Reports in the last two years of Gambian, Senegalese, and nationals of other neighboring countries being transported from The Gambia to Spain by boat appear to be predominantly cases of smuggling rather than trafficking. - U.S. State Dept Trafficking in Persons Report, June, 2008 [
