          Chicken Island in Tambon Pak Nam, Thailand      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Giant stone chicken.

As your boat skims across the crystal blue Andaman Sea and you head out past island after island, you'll suddenly look up and witness a most unusual sight. There, a gargantuan chicken head rises from the turquoise depths.

The great stone chicken watches over flocks of island hopping tourists like a mother hen would guard her chicks. Rather than feathers, it sports a coat of lush greenery. And though the rock’s resemblance to the head of a chicken with a mountainous hump behind it is the obvious attraction, so much more beauty lies beyond the odd poultry spectacle.

Chicken Island is intriguing not only for many of the typical island reasons, but also for its slightly daring unpredictability. It’s an uninhabited and nearly pristine white sand beach that remains undeveloped, save for one little snack shack.

Chicken Island deserves its own day of meandering. The beach is serene and peaceful. A visit at low tide will allow you to walk across a land bridge that appears seemingly out of nowhere and leads you to Tup Island, a smaller, sunnier island whose beach floods during high tide. The snorkeling here is some of the best in the area, with a wide variety of underwater life floating right past your mask.

Sure, you'll come across tour boats stopping for an hour so tourists can snap a picture of the quirky rock formation and snorkel the coral reef, but the area is largely untouched because of just how many other islands there are to explore.


          Cruise Record in Hamburg with Meraviglia Turnaround      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Published in: Cruise News

MSC Meraviglia at Hamburg Cruise Center Steinwerder

As the MSC Meraviglia homeported in Hamburg this week, the port marked a new record as over 5,085 guests disembarked after a 10-day trip, and another group of new passengers boarded.

The port staffed up for the occasion, with over 100 employees working in the cruise terminal. A statement also noted the ship took on 400 tons of food.

“Together with MSC Cruises, we have prepared for the passenger numbers,” said Sacha Rougier, managing director of Cruise Gate Hamburg, adding that the Steinwerder Cruise Center is well equipped to handle the passenger numbers over 14 turnarounds from the MSC Meraviglia scheduled in Hamburg this year.

Sailing from Hamburg, the ship offers cruises to Northern Europe, with itineraries featuring the Norwegian fjords, Spitsbergen, Iceland, Brittan, Ireland and other popular destinations.

"German guests appreciate the international, elegant Mediterranean flair on our ships and enjoy the first-class offering we have,” said Michael Zengerle, managing director of MSC Cruises Germany.

Alexander Napp, managing director of PWL Port Services, the agent for the turnaround, said that a successful homeporting operation comes down to proper planning between all participants.

Androgynous statue weighing 400 pounds stolen from park bench downtown

BATON ROUGE - Police are looking for a cast iron statue that was stolen from a bench in downtown Baton Rouge.

According to BRPD, the distinct, human-shaped sculpture was removed from a park bench along the levee. Investigators believe it was taken sometime between March and April.

The 400-pound statue was one of several erected in downtown last year. The figures were placed all around the area as part of the Borders display by Icelandic sculptor Steinunn Thorarinsdottir.

The statues are situated in different poses - sometimes standing, sitting or kneeling - and are meant to call attention to cultural, political and social diversity. The display was intended to stay in Baton Rouge for a year before moving on to another major city.

Last year, officials told WBRZ the display was paid for through private donations and no city funds were used.

To guard against further trouble, they built an earthen dam in the shape of an enormous “A.” And the dam worked! An avalanche struck the dam’s eastern wing in February 1999, and another struck the western wing the following March. Both were deflected harmlessly into the sea.

CoDex 1962. By Sjon. Translated by Victoria Cribb. Sceptre; 527 pages; £18.99. To be published in America by MCD in September; $30.

SINCE the age of the medieval sagas, the stories told by Icelanders have helped enthrone their lonely mid-Atlantic island as a narrative superpower. From this “northern periphery”, argues this bewitching trilogy of short novels, a yarn-spinner must deploy “every trick in the book” to “think your way into human history”. Poet, novelist and lyric-writer for his compatriot Bjork, Sjon commands more tricks than most. Born, as Sigurjon Sigurosson, in Reykjavik in 1962, the prolific author has beguiled audiences abroad with shape-shifting fictions such as “The Blue Fox”, “From the Mouth of the Whale” and “Moonstone”. His stories compound the dreamscapes of Surrealism, the marvels of Icelandic folklore and a pop-culture sensibility into free-form fables. Call it magic realism under Nordic lights.

A company in United Arab Emirates is looking to haul a giant iceberg from the Antarctic to either Australia or Africa in an effort to provide drinking water to one of these two water-starved places.

The journey, which is expected to launch in November, is about 4,000 miles; the endeavor will cost an estimated $60 million. The idea is not entirely new, and similar plans had circulated back in the 1970s.

How would it work — and what could possibly go wrong? Larry talks to our guests about the idea.

          Under the Tree review – Icelandic over-the-hedge warfare drama      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

From a missing dog to an unspeakable encounter with a nail gun, neighbours rage in Hafsteinn Gunnar Sigurðsson’s skilful black comedy

Lest the people of Iceland be getting complacent about their ranking as the fourth happiest country in the world, here’s an unsettling film sniffing at something rotten at the back of the fridge – behind the paid-for higher education, hang-up-free sex and tastefully minimal interiors.

The film’s director, Hafsteinn Gunnar Sigurðsson, has said his inspiration for Under the Tree was Iceland’s high rate of “neighbour rage”: over-the-fence feuds between ordinary respectable people. Blame the Viking DNA. He skilfully constructs his film as part-thriller, part-intelligent relationship drama, topped with a juicy dollop of savage black comedy.

          10 Things You Should Know About Scandinavian Beefcake      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Ten things you should know about Scandinavian beefcake

1.  Norwegian, Swedish, and Denmark are so closely related that if you learn one, you can make yourself understood reasonably well in the others.

I want to go to your room and see your sausage.
Norwegian: Jeg vil gå til rommet ditt og se pølsen din
Swedish: Jag vill gå till ditt rum och se din korv
Danish:  Jeg vil gerne gå til dit værelse og se din pølse



2. Icelandic strives to stay as close to its Old Norse roots as possible, so it's a little different:

Ég vil fara í herbergið þitt og sjá pylsuna þína













3. And Finnish is a Finno-Ugric language, with no connection.

Haluan mennä huoneeseesi ja nähdä makkaraasi

 But not to worry, most Finns under the age of 50 speak English, and over 50, Swedish:









4. It's not all blond Nordic types.  Only around 70-80% of ethnic Swedes, Norwegians, and Danes have blond hair, and between 5 and 15% of the population has ancestry in the Middle East, Africa, and East Asia.














5.  Norway has won many swimming records.



















6. Martin Kjelstrom, a bodybuilder from Sweden, was part of a gigantic doping scandal that resulted in over 60 arrests.  (Doping is using illicit drugs to enhance your performance.)



















7. Thomas Stellander, a Norwegian bodybuilder, has won three national championships.
















8.  Icelanders aren't much for swimming, but they're into wrestling.  This is the Icelandic wrestling team from the 1912 Olympics.










9. Lauri Kallma is not a wrestler or bodybuilder, he's a Finnish track star.



10. When I searched for "Lapp bodybuilder," this guy popped up.  His name is Jerry Johnson, and he won a bodybuilding competition in Melbourne in 2015.  I highly doubt that he's from Lapland.

          Major roadworks in southwest Iceland      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Around 60 staff are currently hard at work laying 15,000 tonnes of asphalt along a 40 kilometre stretch of Iceland’s Route 1 highway in southwest Iceland. There are some travel delays as a result. Areas affected include Hellisheiði pass, Sandskeiði, and Kambar—all along the route between Hveragerði and Reykjavík.  The roadworks are the single biggest resurfacing project undertaken by Vegagerðin this year and will cost approximately half a billion krónur.  Vegagerðin (The Icelandic Road and Coastal Administration) has been waiting all summer for good enough weather to start the resurfacing from Sandskeiði and east towards Hellisheiði. With the current period of dry and mild weather, the works have started in earnest.  “This is our biggest maintenance project this summer,” says Vegagerðin engineer Birkir Hrafn Jóakimsson. “Now we are surfacing Sandskeiði which is just the beginning of a larger resurfacing project over Hellisheiði that we plan to complete next week to the east of Kambar, near Hveragerði.”  Had the road surface really become that bad here?   “Yes. It had got really bad, as travellers had doubtless noticed. This asphalt had broken up a lot and there were pretty poor conditions on the pass.”  Birkir says the poor condition of the road can largely be blamed on the widespread cutbacks after the financial crisis a decade ago; adding that good quality asphalt is now finally being laid. “I believe it is the best asphalt available in Iceland. We are very picky about the gravel. So demanding, in fact, that we need to import this material from Norway. And this is the same material used for resurfacing in Norway, Denmark, and elsewhere.”  Over the coming days, workers will move steadily over the Hellisheiði mountain pass, which will suffer periodic road closures during which diversions will be in place, sending travellers along the Þrengsli route. Signposts will direct those unfamiliar with the area.   “We would really like drivers to respect the closures and signage and the staff working on the road,” Birkir adds.

グループTWICEに、映画で会う。

 JYPエンターテインメントによると、TWICEが繰り広げるワールドツアー「TWICELAND ZONE 2:Fantasy Park」の公演LIVEを収めた映画『TWICELAND』が、下半期CGVスクリーンXで公開される。

 『TWICELAND』はTWICEの初めての映画だ。 JYPは「実際のコンサート現場をスクリーンX 3面で撮影してまるで客席でコンサートを観覧するような臨場感を実現した」と、説明した。

 シンガポール、タイ、ジャカルタなど海外ツアーのバックステージ映像も公開する。

 TWICEは5月18~20日にソウルでー「TWICELAND ZONE 2:Fantasy Park」の幕を上げた。現在、アジアを回ってツアーを継続している。 9月12日に日本で初めてのフルアルバム『BDZ』をリリースする。

 このビジュアルはどうだ! この娘たち、成熟度が進んで眩しさが増してきた…。といっても、ナヨンでさえまだ23歳(9月22日生まれ)前だ。サナは…おっと、そうだった年の暮れだった。

 TWICEの公演LIVEを収めた映画『TWICELAND』が下半期CGVスクリーンXで公開されるらしい。
 「実際のコンサート現場をスクリーンX 3面で撮影してまるで客席でコンサートを観覧するような臨場感を実現した」という。

 TWICEのコメディ映画が出来ればいいと思っていた。だが、事務所もちゃんと考えていたみたいだ。
 ドラマ仕立ては、台本、衣装、背景等、準備するものは多く完成まで時間がかかる。金もかかりそうだからスポンサーも探さなきゃならないようだ。
 人気のTWICEにこんな仕事をやらすわけにいかない。

 さすがにプロは計算高い。
 専門スタッフに仕事を発注し、ツアーの様子を追いかけて撮影を進めれば後で余禄がついてくる。一石二鳥のビジネスにもなる。
 忙しくステージ活動するTWICEにコメディ映画をつくる時間や余裕なんてあるはずもない。
 仮に持ち込んだ話に乗るスポンサーがいたとする。TWICEが忙しくして稼ぎ出してる分をまず保障して、スポンサーは事に向かわねばならない。勢いCM映画の体裁を取らざるを得なくなる。となるとグループイメージを悪くする話にはTWICEの方で乗れなくなる。
 つまり、TWICEがコメディ映画を撮るのは、今の人気が続く限り無理そうである。
 人気ガールズTWICEの現今活動は日本と韓国を行き来して見えてる部分はとてもシンプルだ。
 公演やる。ファンミやる。ハイタッチ会やる。エトセトラ…
 どこのアイドルもやることだが、TWICEのいちばん稼ぐパターンだと言ってよいだろう。

 テレビに出て歌う彼女らを見る。ハイタッチ会で会える。どこかのレストランや通りで見かけたりする。
 日本のONCEはTWICEに会う機会が多いからじつに恵まれている。

A partial Solar Eclipse, the last among five eclipses in 2018, will occur on Saturday which will not be visible in India.Planetary Society India Founder and Director N Sri Raghunandan Kumar on Friday said in 2018, a total Lunar Eclipse was occurred on January 31, Partial Solar Eclipses on February 16 and on July 13, Total Lunar Eclipse on July 27/28 and Partial Solar Eclipse on August 11.Mr Kumar, however, said among the five Eclipses, only two eclipses (Lunar) were visible from India this year. The August 11 Partial Solar Eclipse similar to other Solar Eclipses of 2018 will not be visible in India.He said the Partial Solar eclipse tomorrow starts at 13:32 hours and end at 17:00 hours as Per Indian Standard Time (IST) but its visible only in the region covering Northernmost Canada, Greenland, Iceland, Northernmost tip of British Isles, most of Scandanavia, Svalbard, most of Russia, most of Kazakhstan, most of Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia and most of China.To a question on whether Is Saturday Eclipse visible in Total anywhere on Earth? .....This Eclipse is Partial Solar Eclipse and hence only Eclipse in Partial Phases is visible in the places mentioned above, the Planetary Society India Director said.Mr Kumar said the last Solar Eclipse is visible in India on March 9 2016 which was a partial one.The Next Solar Eclipse visible in India will occur on December 26, 2019 which again will be visible partially across the contry, he added.When asked to explain in common man language how and why August 11 Eclipse is not visible In India ?, he said the Solar Eclipse occurs when Moon comes between Earth and Sun such a way that ..shadow of Moon falls on Earth..But Moon Shadow during solar eclipse will not fall at all places at a time on Earth..as Moon, Earth are Moving across Sun..so would the shadow of Moon..travels across face of earth from point a to point b.Hence India is not in the path of Moon shadow on on August 11, 2018 so Eclipse is not visible here,Mr Kumar explained.UNI CS 1631

Researchers with the Advanced Rapid Imaging and Analysis (ARIA) project, a NASA mission led by Caltech scientists, used new satellite data to produce a map of ground deformation on the resort island of Lombok, Indonesia, following a deadly 6.9-magnitude earthquake on August 5.

The false-color map shows the amount of permanent surface movement that occurred, almost entirely due to the quake, over a six-day period between satellite images taken on July 30 and August 5.

From the pattern of deformation in the map, scientists have determined that the earthquake fault slip was on a fault beneath the northwestern part of Lombok Island, and it caused as much as 10 inches (25 centimeters) of uplift of the ground surface. White areas in the image are places where the radar measurement was not possible, largely due to dense forests in the middle of the islands.

Through these maps, NASA and its partners are contributing important observations and expertise that can assist with response to earthquakes and other natural or human-produced hazards.

One of Reykjavík Park & Zoo’s more unusual events took place yesterday, as an American “bacon priest” presided over the marriage of two sheep. The lucky creatures’ wedding was also used as an opportunity to promote human rights, Reykjavík Food Festival, and charitable deeds. Reykjavík Food Festival will take place on Skólavörðustígur in the city centre tomorrow, Saturday. The festival has previously been called a bacon festival, but organisers decided this year to embrace all Icelandic food.  As part of the festival, John Whiteside, prophet of the United Church of Bacon, is in Iceland to spread the word of Bacon. The church emphasises human rights and charity, but humour is also never far away. As if to demonstrate, Whiteside presided over the marriage of two Icelandic leader sheep (a distinct strain among Iceland’s ancient sheep breed) at Reykjavík Zoo yesterday.  “I represent the United Church of Bacon, which is a worldwide church with 25,000 members. We have three thousand clergy. We marry people in the name of Bacon and we do not charge anything for our services. What we ask is for the couple that are married to donate to their favourite charity,” Whiteside says.  Whiteside is a former fighter pilot, including serving in the Gulf War. He later flew for one of the big American airlines.   Asked why people should believe in Bacon, he said: “Bacon is our belief system because you can prove bacon is real. There’s nothing wrong with faith, but faith is something that requires a leap and there’s no leap when you believe in bacon. It’s there. It’s physically there.”  He says that during his few days in Iceland so far, the church has attracted some 300 new members, with more expected over the weekend.  “Our basic commandment is basically to try and be a good person in life, and if you do that you win. Everybody wins.”    
          I AM BACK!!! Out Of Google Prison, And Back Here At Blogger And Back In The Fight!      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
After almost 5 days in Google prison, I have been released..... It is good to be back..

Yes, Google Prison was interesting indeed... The food sucked as it was GMO and 100% Kosher... .The daily exercise routine consisted of loudspeakers blaring constant propaganda about how great our Jewish masters are and how we will all "love Israel"..... It was tough sleeping at night, for I had to keep an eye on my cellmate Brutus that was constantly wanting to make me his bitch...I also had to be careful in the showers to make sure that I did not drop my soap when some of the LBGTQ freaks locked up in this prison were near by.... But at least the daily shock treatment and the lithium tablets all helped to make my days go by much quicker....

But all kidding aside, I honestly thought that the psychos behind "Google" would have permanently banished me from their "Blogger" site..... I would assume that all of this hassle came from at least ONE of those "fine people" in the "tribe" that had something to do with my temporary hiatus due to my last article about how we should all never "doubt" the so called "Jewish Holocaust" of the second world war.....

Honestly, I am sick and tired of this censorship and the game that these bastards are playing..... The concept of "freedom of speech" in our once free nations is now DEAD, and sadly there are too many stupid people out there that are unwilling to do anything about that disaster, while they are continuing to have their minds turned to mush by the Jewish propaganda  over the Jew spew media as well as the terrible foods that they ingest.... I and others have tried desperately to awaken these morons to the dangers that we all face, but to no avail.... It will now be only a matter of time before these psychos pull the plug on the entire internet as well as having our fragile economies come crashing down, and only after that happens will the morons out there wake the fuck up and ask "What the fuck just happened?"... Only by then it will be too late...

So.... Where do I go from here?   I again am not going to "censor" my own material, for I speak my own mind and am not afraid to "tell it like it is".... I can guarantee though that I have not heard the last of this "censorship" from the psychotic Jewish freaks behind "Google" and they will sometime soon try to banish me once again.... I will continue to experiment with having my other blog set up and ready to go over at Wordpress for when that happens..... And I am considering taking my blog "offshore" by having it set up through Iceland or another country that does not have this "censorship" over the internet...... But going offshore could cost a pretty penny and again I do NOT want to have to "beg" readers for any money.....I will continue to stand firm in my statements that I am NOT in this for profit or for personal glory...

Well.... I will be putting up some new material here at this blog soon.... All I can say is that it is good to be back, and I do want to thank those who alerted everyone else to the travesty that I suffered for the last few days.... They are indeed the good ones out there and their efforts are very much appreciated by myself...

In the meantime... And as usual...

Trilogy International Partners (TIP), which owns telecoms assets in New Zealand (2degrees) and Bolivia (Viva) through its Trilogy LLC unit, has reported total revenues of USD198.1 million for the three months ended 30 June 2018, up 2% on an annualised basis. Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter slumped 5% year-on-year, to USD37.5 million, with the group reporting a net loss of USD6.3 million for the three months under review, compared to a deficit of USD10.8 million in 2Q17.*In operational terms, 2degrees reported a total of 1.392 million mobile customers, alongside 74,600 fixed broadband users. Viva claimed 2.278 million wireless customers, of which 22% (501,116) were LTE users. The Bolivian cellco added 204 LTE cell sites during the second quarter of 2018, meaning that 87% of its network is now LTE-enabled.*Brad Horwitz, President and CEO, commented: ‘Our businesses turned in a solid quarter, with continued post-paid subscriber growth in both of our operating markets … We had over 11,000 consolidated post-paid net additions; nearly double last quarter. As a result, our post-paid subscriber base is 5% larger than it was at the end of Q2 2017.’*TIP was formed in 2005 by wireless industry veterans John Stanton, Theresa Gillespie and Brad Horwitz, whose previous company Western Wireless International built and operated wireless networks in markets such as Austria, Ireland, Iceland, Croatia, Slovenia, Latvia, Georgia, Ghana, Cote d’Ivoire, Bolivia, and Haiti. TIP began trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange in 2017, following a ‘reverse acquisition’ transaction with Canada’s Alignvest Acquisition Corporation.

Jófríður Ákadóttir sits down with Clash...

Icelandic artist Jófríður Ákadóttir has already worked on various projects, completed various releases.

A songwriter in perpetual evolution, her music shifts from neo-classical realms through to beautifully heart-on-sleeve lyricism.

Now working as JFDR, new EP 'White Sun' - out now, doncha know - finds the Icelandic talent re-casting some of her older work in a new realm.

A fantastic stop-off point for those new to her work, it also operates as a deftly pieced together EP in its own right, yet another chapter from a furiously productive musician.

Here, Jófríður Ákadóttir breaks down a few of her Influences...

- - -

Joni Mitchell - 'Both Sides Now'

I read that Joni finds in ‘Both Sides Now’ she failed to capture the array of thoughts she was processing at that time, about life and love and the wideness in between and beyond.

It interests me because I think that’s maybe the song’s most profound quality. The analogies she uses leave a lot of space for interpretation and imagination yet pinpoint the essence of her thoughts beautifully and describe elements most human beings can relate to on some level.

- - -

Enya - 'Caribbean Blue'

I think this song is magic. I could analyse it further but it’s not necessary. Enjoy.

- - -

Arthur Russell - 'A Little Lost'

It’s hard to leave out Arthur Russell. He was so far ahead of his time, making DIY recordings and lo-fi gems before that was as accessible and accepted as it is today. He’s so gorgeously free in his songwriting, performance and arrangement, the whole spectrum is open and free.

I could pick many of his songs but I always come back to this one as my favourite. It’s the melancholy of love, the excitement and the terror of vulnerability.

- - -

Steve Reich - 'New York Counterpoint'

In music history class my teacher said people often connected very strongly with minimalist music or hated it. If they hated it they might prefer serialism and vice versa. I was immediately moved by minimalism, Steve Reich in particular. I played this piece with my clarinet choir while I was still in music school and grew a deep connection to it.

- - -

Björk - 'Unravel'

I find this is Björk at her possibly sparsest. It's simple and strong like one heavy push rather than layers of gentle ones. A sensibility I admire endlessly.

          Scandinavian farmers hit by drought      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Like the whole of Northern Europe, Scandinavia is suffering from drought, and many farmers are now using their hay stored for the coming winter to feed their animals. That way they hope to avoid slaughtering them early, which would mean further financial losses. "It makes no sense to spread seeds on concrete and then expect anything to come from that," said Denmark's Minister for Environment and Food, Jakob Ellemann-Jensen . "So, we need to wait for the rain, a thing we have no control over no matter how much we kick and scream." Hay is traded like gold, supplies are thin on the ground. Swedes and Danes are buying at exorbitant prices. Norway even imports from Iceland. Over the next three months, around 35,000 tons will be brought in. A lot of rain has led to overproduction in Iceland, allowing it to export the excess to the dry Scandinavian countries. The transport costs are high and there is also the risk of introducing pathogens or weeds with the hay. An expensive interim solution for Norway, because Brussels does not intervene in Norwegian agriculture as it does with full EU members. It has been the driest summer in over 70 years, prompting Norway to remove any import duties on hay.

          Interest mounts for crisis anniversary      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The start of October will mark one decade since the start of the Icelandic financial crisis; the day the government enacted sweeping emergency laws to try and shore up the economy in the face of the banking sector collapse. Even before the 6th October 2008, when then-PM Geir Haarde gave his infamous “Guð blessi Ísland” televised address, there were already seismic shocks reverberating through the global financial markets. The fall of Lehman Brothers bank in the USA on 15th September was still very fresh.  World media are unsurprisingly preparing a raft of special documentaries, features, and articles on the subject at the moment, and a good proportion of them have been visiting Iceland to interview those closest to the country’s famous economic meltdown and its aftermath.   District Attorney Ólafur Þór Hauksson, who previously held the temporary post of Special Prosecutor investigating the crash, told RÚV he has been busy all summer with interviews for various media, though mainly European television stations.   He says that the ten-year anniversary will be marked on different dates by different countries. While Iceland will doubtless consider it the 6th October, the British may well view it as the 9th August, which is the date Northern Rock announced the troubles that would lead to the bank’s collapse.   Hörður Torfason, the musician who prompted Iceland’s so-called “pots and pans revolution” agrees with Ólafur, saying he has been giving interviews on the topic for a decade, but never as many as this summer.   Hörður organised a protest in front of parliament on Saturday 11th October 2008 which was attended by just 50 people—mostly foreign journalists. Undeterred, he continued organising them every Saturday, eventually attracting tens of thousands of protesters and leading to the fall of the government and new elections. Hörður has written a book about the protest that will go on sale on 11th October.   
          Icelandic statue goes missing in USA      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
A statue by Icelandic sculptor Steinunn Þórarinsdóttir, which was part of her travelling art installation called Borders, has been lost or stolen in the Louisiana city of Baton Rouge. The metal statue, one of Steinunn’s iconic human figures, weighs 181 kg and was featured sitting on a bench. American media report that the statue could have been taken as long ago as April or March, and that crew working on the newest Tom Hanks movie have been questioned about the artwork’s disappearance.  The Borders public exhibition was set up last year, but the missing statue was not noticed by organisers until the time came to pack up and move to the next city. “We decided to go over all the statues and check they were all in their place and then it came to light that one was missing,” Reenie Chatelain from the Baton Rouge arts council told local media.  City authorities investigating the disappearance got in touch with the crew of Greyhound, the movie starring Tom Hanks, which was filming in Baton Rouge at the time the statue is thought to have been removed, or stolen. The crew, however, say they had not been anywhere near the statue and do not know what happened to it.  Chatelain says she has told Steinunn about the disappearance and that the artist is very upset about the statue, which is an important part of her exhibition. If it cannot be found, the city arts council will have to pay some USD 60,000 (6.5 million krónur) in insurance.  There are 18 statues in the exhibition and this is not the first time their damage has hit the headlines in the USA. Four years ago, a 13-year-old boy was charged with vandalising the statues while they were on display in Grant Park, Chicago. The park’s spokesman lamented at the time that the vandalism was bad for his city’s reputation.  Another statue by Steinunn, dedicated to British seamen killed off the Icelandic coast, was stolen while on display in Hull, UK.   
          Tourism boom slowing down      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The Icelandic tourism industry might be becoming a victim of its own success, according to Ásdís Kristjánsdóttir, chairman of SA, the Confederation of Icelandic Enterprise. It finds itself in the ironic position of having driven the strengthening of the Icelandic króna while at the same time being its principle victim as the currency makes Iceland a more expensive place to visit. This has already led to tourists taking shorter trips, spending less money, and travelling less far around the country. “Tourism was, until just a few years ago, a little, cute industry. Now it is contributing huge value to the economy and has become one of our key sectors,” she told RÚV news.   After double-digits expansion in tourist numbers to Iceland in recent years, numbers are up by only 5% so far this year. While the industry welcomes any expansion, there is worry that the numbers are being bolstered by growing numbers of American tourists, while key markets in Northern and Central Europe, as well as Canada, are shrinking. “We want to see growth in a wider range of markets,” Ásdís says.  Ásdís also points out that growth in the tourism sector this year is mostly benefitting the capital region, as well as South and West Iceland. Other regions do not appear to be seeing growth. She puts this down to the strength of the króna pressuring people to not stay as long, or travel as far.  The Director of the Icelandic Travel Industry Association agrees, telling RÚV Iceland has become less economically competitive as a destination when compared to other countries. Jóhannes Þór Skúlason adds that many companies have already been economising and streamlining to reduce prices, but cannot cut back any further.  The number of visitors from Central Europe has dropped by almost 20% in one year, according to figures from the tourist board and Isavia at Keflavík Airport.  Jóhannes blames the strength of the króna, but also claims there has been a rapid inflation of wages that companies have struggled to swallow without increasing prices.  He says that campaigns to spread tourist spending more evenly across the country and throughout the whole year have proven somewhat less successful than had been hoped.   
          Solar eclipse visible from Iceland tomorrow      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
A partial solar eclipse will be visible from Iceland tomorrow morning between roughly 08.00 and 09.00. During a partial solar eclipse, the moon covers part of the sun as the moon’s orbit around the earth passes in front of the earth’s view of the sun. The eclipse will be visible across all of Iceland, though Veðurstofan (the Icelandic Met Office) predicts cloud in many areas.  At its height, the eclipse will obscure 17-25% of the sun over Iceland. In Reykjavík the eclipse will begin at 08.10, with the sun 18° above the horizon. The eclipse will reach its maximum magnitude in the capital at 08.44, when the sun will have reached 21° above the horizon. At this point, the moon will cover 20% of the sun and obscure 10% of the sun’s brightness. The eclipse will be over in Reykjavík at 09.19, when the sun reaches 25° above the horizon.  The effect of the eclipse will be greater in the north of Iceland, where 25% of the sun will be obscured, and its brightness reduced by 15%.  Veðurstofan is forecasting clear skies in North Iceland tomorrow morning, while other parts of the country will probably be cloudy.  People wishing to look at the eclipse must not do so directly, as this can cause blindness. Special eclipse viewing glasses are necessary, or preferably a telescope with sun filter attached. Normal sunglasses are not strong enough.  The next solar eclipse visible from Iceland will occur on 10th June 2021 and will be a 70% eclipse, seen from Reykjavík.   Iceland’s first total solar eclipse since 1954 will be visible on 12th August 2026.

          South Africans are helping Australia become one of the richest countries in the world      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

After several years of strong growth, Australia is now arguably the world’s leading economy, according to a new report from AfrAsia Bank and New World Wealth.
According to the researchers, Australia currently has the fifth highest count of wealth per capita, behind ‘small’ financial hubs like Monaco and Switzerland. Wealth in this case refers to the net assets of a person. It includes all their assets (property, cash, equities, business interests) less any liabilities.
Wealth per person in US$ (wealth per capita)
  • Monaco: $2,087,400
  • Liechtenstein: $761,100
  • Luxembourg: $368,000
  • Switzerland: $354,000
  • Australia: $279,200
  • Norway: $228,000
  • Singapore: $194,500
  • United States: $193,400
  • Canada: $185,300
  • New Zealand: $173,700
The researchers said that the argument could be made that Australia is actually top of the pile, if the smaller financial hubs like Monaco, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg and Switzerland are excluded.
While Australia’s rise in wealth may be a result of many factors, one of the stand-out reasons for Australia’s climb in per capita wealth is the consistent migration of high net-worth individuals being drawn into the country – including many wealthy South Africans.
According to NWW, Australia has attracted more millionaires than any other country over the past few years, which shows that many wealthy people feel that it is the best long-term prospect.
These are the biggest drivers of wealth in the country:
  • It has consistently been the fastest growing first world market over the past 20 years (in terms of economic growth, wealth growth, income growth and property price growth).
  • Low population density – only 25 million people and large land area.
  • Mineral rich.
  • It is very safe, which encourages wealth growth. Australia was recently rated by New World Wealth as one of the five safest countries for woman worldwide (along with Iceland, Malta, New Zealand and Canada).
  • High and rising real estate prices, especially on the East Coast.
  • Consistent HNWI migration to the country over the past 20 years.
  • Location – it benefits from strong business ties with emerging Asian giants such as China, Japan and Korea.
Migrating wealth 
According to a recent Sydney Morning Herald articleAustralia has brought in billions of dollars in investment by attracting millionaires through its Significant Investor visa (SIV) programme.
Data supplied to BusinessTech by Australia’s Department of Home Affairs (DOHA) showed that these investments equated to around AUD$9.8 billion over the 1 July 2017 – 31 March 2018 period.
One of the key requirements of the SIV, is that holders are required to invest AUD$5 million (R50 million) into complying significant investments for a minimum of four years before being eligible to apply for a permanent visa.
Over the period, 1,974 SIV visas were granted – of which, about 26 South Africans were accepted.
While Australia’s SIV is one of the more expensive ways of leaving the country, data provided to BusinessTech shows that a much higher amount of South Africans are emigrating to Australia through other visa options.
The data focuses on the ‘permanent additions’ to Australia’s resident population in the 2016-2017 financial year.
This includes the number of people who have obtained a permanent visa onshore, the number of settler arrivals during a given time period, and the number of people who have been granted a permanent protection visa onshore.
Combined this added to a total of 5,397 South Africans over this time period. The skill stream is by far the most popular way for South Africans to move to the country, with a total of 4,419 South African applicants on this visa type.
By comparison a total of 672 applicants were on the family stream and 288 on ‘non-programme migration’.
