Audio 3: Commentary with Actress Juliet Mills,
Producer Scott Spiegel & Film Historian Darren Gross

Juliet Mills plays a pregnant woman who becomes possessed by a demon and begins puking split pea soup all over the place. Ex-boyfriend Richard Johnson shows up to save the day.

BEYOND THE DOOR definitely riffs on THE EXORCISTS, but has an entirely different feel. While THE EXORCIST took normal, banal moments or settings and injected them with a sense of dis-ease, BEYOND THE DOOR has a disturbed, dream-like feel to it. There isn't a single normal thing about this movie to lull viewers into safety or complacency. Juliet Mills' erratic, violent behavior, the montage-like exteriors as Mills shops in San Francisco and her husband visits the psychic are weirdly unsettling with no pretensions. Ditto for the sequences with the children and the glowing-eyed dolls. The scene in which Mills is trussed up in bed with electrodes attached to her scalp is almost unbearable to look at for Mills' creepy facial expression. I first viewed this when I was a sophomore in high school, watching it on an independent TV station late at night. The movie weirded me out like no film before it(until I saw ALICE SWEET ALICE)and was truly unsettling. Very symbolic, with attempts to convey concepts of evil through cinematic language. Interesting, if only for seeing a different interpretation of the demonic possession genre.

          The First Year of Herod the Great’s Reign      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

A Quick Review

We will begin this article with a brief review of the major points laid out in the previous one (“John 2:12–21 and Herodian Chronology,” http://www.biblearchaeology.org/post/2018/06/29/John-212e2809321-and-Herodian-Chronology.aspx), and then go into a detailed analysis of some arguments offered against its conclusion that the reign of Herod the Great should be dated to 37 BC, per the reasons laid out by Emil Schürer in A History of the Jewish People in the Time of Jesus Christ.

Josephus Started the Year from Nisan

In the linked article we saw how Josephus’ own words demonstrated that he regarded the month of Nisan as the first month of the Jewish year, hence in Antiquities he followed the ecclesiastical calendar rather than the civil calendar starting in Tishri (emphasis and bracketed comments added; except where noted, the Whiston translation of Antiquities is used throughout this article):

Antiquities 1.3.3 – “But Moses appointed that Nisanshould be the first month…although he preserved the original order of the months [where Nisan, as counted from Rosh Hashanah in Tishri, was taken as the seventh month] as to selling and buying, and other ordinary affairs.”

Antiquities 3.10.5 – “Nisanis the beginning of our year.”

Antiquities 11.4.8 – “the first month; which according to the Macedonians is called Xanthicus; but according to us, Nisan.

It could perhaps be argued that calling Nisan "the first month" is purely a label, and does not entail actually counting years from it. But the fact remains that during the Second Temple period after the Babylonian exile, the Jews themselves, as reflected in both Antiquities 3.10.5 and the Mishnah, regarded Nisan rather than Tishri as "the beginning of our year," and counted their rulers' reigns from it. For our purposes, with a focus on the reign of Herod as a Jewish ruler, that is what matters.

Josephus Used Inclusive Reckoning

In addition it was established, from several examples, that the uncomplicated, plain sense of Antiquities indicates Josephus mainly followed inclusive reckoning. We know that inclusive reckoning was a normal convention in the Bible and in the Roman and Jewish worlds generally, this is not in dispute. The story of Cornelius in Acts 10 was given as a biblical example, while we observed that a straightforward reading of Josephus indicates he followed this convention in the way he handled the time spanned by several pairs of independent, unrelated events: the 27 years from Pompey’s taking of Jerusalem in 63 BC to the start of Herod’s de facto (“in fact”) reign in 37 BC following the siege of Jerusalem, the 107 years from the start of Herod’s reign in 37 BC until the Temple fell to Titus in AD 70, and the seventh year of Herod’s reign matching up with the year of the Battle of Actium on September 2, 31 BC, thus requiring his first year to have been in 37 BC. Since these three examples are obviously discussed in Antiquities—in 14.16.4, 20.10.1, and 15.5.2 respectively, with the last one also addressed in Wars 1.19.3—what Andrew E. Steinmann (“When Did Herod the Great Reign?” Novum Testamentum 51 [2009]: 1–29) states in his note 8 (p. 2) is not borne out by the evidence:

Schürer claimed that Josephus used inclusive reckoning (1896 edition 1.200–201, Vermes and Millar edition, Schürer, History 326–327). If Josephus used inclusive reckoning to arrive at thirty-seven and thirty-four years [the first giving the time from Herod’s Roman appointment to his death, the second from his siege victory to his death, Ant. 17.8.1] (i.e., the years 40–4 BCE inclusive totals thirty-seven), such inclusive reckoning is not indicated elsewhere in Josephus (emphasis and bracketed comment added).

The cited instances do indicate Josephus used inclusive reckoning elsewhere. They should predispose us to view the 37 and 34-year time spans the same way. With one small, but as we shall see, significant correction: Josephus does does not refer to the "siege victory" in Antiquities 17.8.1, but to the death of Antigonus: "When he had done these things, he died...having reigned since he had procured Antigonus to be slain thirty four years." It is an important difference.

Josephus Sometimes Gave Time Durations

The few exceptions to inclusive reckoning in Josephus’ writings were seen to reflect elapsed time, or rather, time durations of single events that covered a period of time from start to completion. Such was the case where Herod's 18th year was said to mark the start of the 46 years the Temple was “a-building,” and with the 126 years that had elapsed since the Hasmonean dynasty was first set up until its last king died. Whereas time spans between two different events were reckoned inclusively as expected, the duration of what were essentially single events having a defined start and end point were dealt with differently. They were treated like birthdays; the first example looked at when the Temple became 46 years old, the second at when the Hasmonean dynasty became 126 years old. Since it is self-evident that one would never say a month-old infant was reckoned as being one year of age, exceptions like these to the normal inclusive reckoning approach are to be expected. But in saying this, we must insist that such exceptions to accommodate the duration of an event do not set aside the general principle of inclusive reckoning, nor reckoning specifically from Nisan in the case of the post-exilic (Second Temple) Judean kings.

I initially thought it would be sufficient to press these three simple, positive evidences upon the reader, deeming them adequate in themselves to powerfully call into question the validity of any chronological approaches that began the de facto reign of Herod in 36 rather than 37 BC. But the more I reflected on the matter, the more I realized that it was the very complexity of the arguments put forth by W.E. Filmer (“The Chronology of the Reign of Herod the Great,” Journal of Theological Studies 17.2 [1966], pp. 283–298) and Steinmann that might cause some readers to be swayed by them. Some people are impressed by cleverness, while for others it is far easier to simply accept these scholars’ judgments on authority than to analyze their arguments. Still others may feel a certain loyalty to particular scholars for other reasons, such as Steinmann’s reputation as a conservative scholar with a significant book on biblical chronology to his credit.

But in the end, none of those factors should influence our evaluation of their arguments, only the strength of the logic and data they present to make their cases. Therefore, before turning to consider the death date of Herod, it is necessary to offer some specific rebuttals to the Filmer/Steinmann contention that Herod’s reign must be dated from his appointment by the Romans, supposedly in 39 BC.

The Attacks on the “Schürer Consensus”

The approaches of Filmer and Steinmann involve attacking what Steinmann dubs the “Schürer consensus.” Their arguments primarily involve seeking ways to get around the manifest appearance of non-accession (inclusive) dating of reigns from Nisan seen in Josephus. But when we closely examine the evidence, we see this effort is built on a framework of assumptions, questionable interpretations, and outright accusations of error leveled against Josephus. In what follows we will attempt to demonstrate the existence of this shaky framework, and call for a return to a solid structure based on accepting the fundamental reliability of Josephus as an historian, with his work interpreted in a straightforward manner.

An Insistence on Non-Inclusive Dating

The fundamental way the Filmerians reinterpret Josephus is by insisting that he consistently used non-inclusive dating in Antiquities, with the month of Tishri (September/October) viewed as the first month of the year. In this approach, the year an event occurred in is not included in the counting. This means that in the case of reign lengths of rulers, where this approach is known as accession-year reckoning, counting began with the first of Tishri after the start of a king’s reign, while with other matters actual reckoning (as we count things today) was used, with the first year counted on the first anniversary after the event.

The problem is, the records of the Jews themselves indicate non-inclusive, accession-year, Tishri-based dating was not followed after the return from the Babylonian exile. The Mishnah, the third century AD rabbinic compilation of Jewish oral tradition, clearly supports inclusive, non-accession reckoning from Nisan during the Second Temple era that included Herod’s reign:

On the first of Nissan is the [cut off date for the] New Year regarding [the count of the reigns of the Jewish] kings [which was used to date legal documents. If a king began his reign in Adar even if was only for one day that is considered his first year, and from the first of Nissan is considered his second year…] On the first of Tishrei is the New Year for [the counting of] years [of non-Jewish kings], for the Shemittah and the Yoveil count...” (http://www.emishnah.com/moed2/Rosh_HaShanah/1.pdf; brackets with summarized Gemara commentary original, emphasis added).

This tells us there were two main calendars (there were minor ones as well, but they can be ignored for our purposes). One began in Tishri and applied to counting years dealing with civil affairs, specifically in regard to kings of foreign nations, sabbatical (shemittah) years, and jubilee (yoveil) counts; the other began in Nisan and applied to Jewish kings and religious festivals. In emphasizing the primacy of Nisan dating for Josephus and for Herodian chronology in particular, we do not deny that Tishri accession-year dating applied to kings’ reigns during the First Temple period, as well as to the reigns of the Babylonian and Persian rulers over the Jews during the Babylonian captivity. But we must insist, on the basis of the Mishnah and the testimony of Josephus, that such reckoning did not apply to Second Temple, post-exilic kings of the Jews like Herod. The evidence clearly indicates that the Jews reckoned Nisan as the first month of their year as far back as the Babylonian exile. We see this unambiguously stated in Esther 3:7 (NASB):

In the first month, which is the month Nisan, in the twelfth year of King Ahasuerus, Pur, that is the lot, was cast before Haman from day to day and from month to month, until the twelfth month, that is the month Adar.

If the first month was Nisan and the twelfth was Adar for Queen Esther, a loyal Jew, the ecclesiastical calendar’s ordering of the months was obviously normative in Jewish minds by that time. There is no clear biblical evidence that the Jews thereafter ever viewed Tishri as the first month of the year for reckoning the reigns of their own rulers.

Preoccupation with Herod’s Roman Appointment

This brings up an important point about Steinmann’s approach to Herod’s reign. He consistently refuses to treat it as beginning with the deposing of Antigonus (Ant. 17.8.1) following the siege of Jerusalem, but insists it began with the Roman appointment. But why must we suppose that, just because the Romans had something to do with his getting the position, their involvement somehow made Herod a non-Jewish, foreign king to whom Tishri dating applied? Antigonus was likewise made king of Judea by the intervention of a foreign power, in his case the Parthians, yet no one tries to represent him as a foreign king. What makes one a foreign king with his reign reckoned from Tishri is ruling over a country other than Judea. This was not the case with Herod. It has to do with a uniform approach to record keeping in affairs of state.

Moreover, Steinmann’s proposal that Herod dated his reign from when the Romans granted him the throne of Judea is beside the point. For our purposes it ultimately does not matter how Herod may have viewed the start of his reign, but how Josephus did and recorded it in his histories. For argument’s sake, the strongest indicator that Herod may have personally placed priority on his Roman appointment could be seen in his coins. Steinmann cites numismatic evidence in support of Herod using Rome-based dating of his reign on page 27:

Herod’s first coins, issued to replace Hasmonean currency, are also the first dated Jewish coins. They are dated to “year three.”

Pictures of these coins, derived from David Hendin’s authoritative Guide to Biblical Coins, can be found at http://www.coinsoftime.com/Articles/The_Coins_of_Herod_the_Great.html. Then he continues:

Clearly, Herod counted the year he first reigned in Jerusalem as the third year of his reign. This means that he counted his first regnal year as beginning no later than Tishri 38 BCE and issued his first coinage shortly after conquering Jerusalem in 36 BCE (emphasis added).

We may regard the supposition that “Herod counted the year he first reigned in Jerusalem as the third year of his reign” as likely, since there are no known Herodian coins bearing year one or two (or any) dates. But the emphasized statement following it depends on first assuming the Filmerian view that Herod was named king by the Romans in 39 BC with non-inclusive accession-year dating applied (39 BC up to the end of Elul being his accession year), followed by the taking of Jerusalem in the fall of 36 BC. The coinsoftime.com website disagrees, saying the coin’s date refers to Herod’s capture of Judea in 37 BC. Steinmann has obviously allowed his assumptions to lead his arguments here.

It should also be observed that Steinmann deals with coin matters very carefully, pointing to the “year three” notation as evidence Herod dated his reign from his Roman appointment, yet in the case of Herod’s son Antipas going to great pains to argue against the numismatic evidence:

Antipas lost the tetrarchy of Galilee and Perea in the second year of Gaius (38/39 CE) and the latest coins minted under his authority are dated to his forty-third year. This means that he claimed to have begun his reign in 5/4 BCE. Why would Archelaus and Antipas claim to have reigned from 4 BCE if Herod did not die in that year? Is this not proof that Herod must have died in 4 BCE and not 1 BCE? (p. 20).

It would seem so on the surface, but Steinmann then goes on to argue at length (devoting five pages to this), on a conjectural basis with considerable reading between the lines, that Herod actually did not die in 4 BC, and the evidence of the coins is misleading in this case. This is a discussion that must be tabled for now. My only point in bringing it up is to show that Steinmann is willing to reinterpret the apparent sense of the evidence when doing so will further his argument.

Let us return to our main point, that Herod’s possible view of the start of his reign is less important than how Josephus viewed it. As we saw earlier when discussing the evidence for inclusive reckoning in Josephus, the examples of Pompey’s 27 years, the Temple’s fall after 107 years, and the Battle of Actium assigned to Herod’s seventh year, all rely on dating from 37 BC. So, too, does the rebuilding of the Temple in Herod’s eighteenth year. None of these figures work with Josephus’ own time spans if they are counted from the Roman appointment three years previously. In presenting the synchronisms as he did, it is clear that, so far as Josephus was concerned, the taking of the city and deposing of Antigonus took priority over the Roman appointment for dating purposes. So, if our goal is to understand Josephus rather than read our own preferences onto his records, that is the basis we likewise should prefer for dating.

At this juncture I wish to mention an insight Ed Rickard shared on his The Moorings website, https://www.themoorings.org/Jesus/birth/Herodian_chronology.html. He proposes that the more detailed information in Antiquities was due to Josephus uncovering additional sources of authoritative, reliable information for dating the reign of Herod after Wars was written. Filmer had pointed out (pp. 286–287) that Josephus included nothing in Wars about the consular year and Olympiad synchronizations Antiquities gives for the 40 and 37 BC regnal start dates. Filmer, filtering this observation through his presuppositions, concludes that Josephus devised his own date synchronizations and introduced dating errors into Antiquities in the process.

There is another way of looking at it, however, that does not require demeaning Josephus: to posit that the additional information sources were official Roman records not known to him until after Wars was written, plus what might be called, as Ralph Marcus and Allen Wikgren translate it in the Loeb version of Antiquities 15.6.3, “Herod’s Memoirs.” This idea is attractive. It is highly probable that official records would have reflected consular dating, while information written by Herod himself would also likely have been from a Roman perspective, given how much he owed them for his exalted position. But even if it was, the question remains: did Josephus himself embrace that perspective in the way he wrote Antiquities? For most Herodian events it makes no substantive difference whether Josephus’ records reflect a January or Nisan first month, but it does matter when we consider exactly when Herod died. That is a matter for future consideration.

It is also worth noting that, notwithstanding the evidence of the coins which, as legal tender of the realm, would naturally have reflected Roman preferences, Herod expended great effort to have the Jews regard him as one of their own rather than a Roman pawn. This is particularly clearly illustrated in the remarks he made in Antiquities 15.11.1 before undertaking the building of the Temple:

I think I need not speak to you, my countreymenOur Fathers indeed, when they were returned from Babylon, built this temple to God Almighty… And it hath been by reason of the subjection of those fathers of ours… I will do my endeavour to correct that imperfection, which hath arisen from the necessity of our affairs, and the slavery we have been under formerly…(emphasis added).

Such self-evident intent to foster an identification of himself with the Jews and gain their loyalty is inconsistent with Steinmann’s insistence that only Roman views mattered to Herod:

Since Herod was appointed by a Gentile power, he probably [assuming a 39 BC appointment as king] began to count his official regnal years as beginning on the following Tishri (September/October) of 38 BCE (since the Jewish civil year began on Tishri). He may have counted his years as beginning in Nisan (March/April) of 38, but this is less likely, since this was the beginning of the religious year, and it would have been unwise to count a Gentile appointment from a sacred Jewish date….This also implies, however, that in Antiquities Josephus numbered Herod’s regnal years from his appointment by the Romans (p. 27, emphasis and bracketed comments added).

All of that is pure conjecture; notice the words “probably,” and “may have.” Consider as well, that apart from being the start of a month—sharing certain prescribed rites with other first days of months (Num. 10:10, 28:11–15), including the first of Tishri—there was nothing especially “sacred” about the first day of Nisan. It was primarily a starting reference point, the first month of the year, from which the Jewish feasts and fasts mandated by the Torah were ordered. It carried with it none of the special “sacredness” that characterized those dates and the weekly Sabbath (Lev. 23).

To wrap up this phase of the discussion, the Mishnah’s stipulations regarding the Tishri dating of kings were for record keeping purposes relative to other countries, not how kings reigning over the Jews from Jerusalem started their rule. Tishri dating therefore does not apply to Herod as a king of Judea. Yet, despite the united testimony of Scripture, Josephus and the Mishnah in favor of inclusive reckoning from Nisan from the time of Esther onwards for Judean kings, Filmer and Steinmann argue against that evidence, asserting that Josephus used accession-year, non-inclusive reckoning from Tishri. They then use this conjecture as the basis for a frontal attack on the plain sense of Josephus’ records. Filmer was the first modern scholar to take this tack, citing Edwin Thiele to claim that the reigns from Solomon to Zedekiah (pre-exilic rulers of the united monarchy, it should be noted) were reckoned from Tishri (p. 294), and then extrapolating from that to Herod. But surely the knowledgeable rabbis who put the Mishnah together had their own post-exilic history and the dating norms that arose from it down pat, which Josephus’ focus on Nisan dating indicates he likewise followed. Arguing against it appears to be flouting the evidence.

An Insistence on Factual Reckoning: The Actium Issue

Nevertheless, Steinmann chose to align himself closely with Filmer on this and many other matters. One is the Actium issue. He deals with it briefly on pages 5–6 in the context of critiquing the work of P.M. Bernegger, “Affirmation of Herod’s Death in 4 BCE,” Journal of Theological Studies 34 (1983), 526–531. What his objections boil down to is an insistence on looking at Josephus’ data through the lens of factual (date-specific), non-inclusive reckoning from September 2, 31 BC. For example, Bernegger (p. 529) cites Josephus’ discussion about the Roman tax registration in Syria during AD 6:

Josephus stated that the registration was completed in the thirty-seventh year after Actium. The battle of Actium took place in 31 B.C., thirty-six factual years before the completion of the Syrian registration. In this instance, Josephus counted inclusively, and without any ambiguity.

Steinmann protests, “However, Bernegger’s reasoning only works if one forgets about the date of the Battle of Actium, September 2, 31 BCE.” This reveals his Filmerian assumptions. Shelve the idea that factual, to-the-day dating matters, together with the presumption of non-inclusive year counts, and the problem vanishes. Steinmann also projects his own bias onto Bernegger when he writes, “Years after Actium commenced on September 3, not on the following January 1, as Bernegger’s calculations assume.” But as a follower of Schürer’s approach that adhered to Jewish and Roman inclusive dating conventions, Bernegger’s year count would have been inclusive, making the first year “after Actium” begin in 31 BC, not the following January. This makes 30 BC the second year after Actium, and so on until the 37th year in AD 6. Whether Bernegger used a January-to-December Julian calendar or Nisan to Adar, the inclusive approach still makes September 2 part of 31 BC rather than 30 BC. Thus, we see that Steinmann has here criticized a misrepresentation of Bernegger’s position. His so-called “Schürer consensus” increasingly resembles a convenient straw man for him to attack. It bears only passing resemblance to the actual positions of Emile Schürer and those who followed him.

The problems posed by the Battle of Actium against Filmer and Steinmann’s interpretation get worse. For example, Steinmann claimed in note 83 of his article:

The Battle of Actium [September 2, 31 BC] would have taken place at the very end of Herod’s seventh year, since Tishri can begin no earlier than September 20 and no later than October 19. In 31 BCE the Babylonians counted September 21 as the first day of Tishri (Richard A. Parker and Waldo H. Dubberstein, Babylonian Chronology 626 BCE–AD 75 [Brown University Studies 19, Providence: Brown University, 1956] 43). This confirms that Herod started his regnal years in Tishri, not Nisan (emphasis and bracketed comment added).

But this is circular reasoning. All this statement proves is that the Battle of Actium took place in the sixth month, Elul, just before Tishri started. It does not indicate that Actium was at the very end of Herod’s seventh year, or of any year. To claim that means first assuming a Tishri-based year—the very thing Filmer and Steinmann must prove—as well as factual dating. If Nisan-based inclusive dating was used instead, Actium would still have occurred just before Tishri, but would have fallen in the middle of Herod’s seventh year. Not only does this logic fail, the claim again flies in the face of Josephus’ testimony in Antiquities that his historical records for the Jews revolved around the Nisan-based ecclesiastical calendar, not the civil calendar using a Tishri New Year. We should place priority on the source material’s own interpretation of itself, not on a modern scholar’s reinterpretation of it. If it makes good sense as written, there is no real reason to reject it.

Further to this, at http://www.nowoezone.com/NTC04.html, Kenneth Frank Doig observed:

Andrew E. Steinmann...claims that the Battle of Actium in Herod’s 7th year on September 2, 31 BCE establishes Josephus “confirms that Herod started his regnal years in Tishri, not Nisan.” However, the dating is such that it was Herod’s 7th year reckoned from either Nisan or Tishri. Because of using dating from Tishri Steinmann elsewhere says Josephus “contradicts” himself.

My own independent analysis, put into a spreadsheet long before I read Steinmann’s article, agrees with Doig’s conclusions. Whether Nisan (March/April) or Tishri (September/October) reckoning is used for the start of the year, both of these possible New Year’s dates fall squarely into the January-to-December year of 31 BC.

In the end, what “Alexander” wrote (https://www.biblicalarchaeology.org/daily/people-cultures-in-the-bible/jesus-historical-jesus/herods-death-jesus-birth-and-a-lunar-eclipse/), quoted in my last article, still applies:

Despite any counting methods that may be employed by various authors, whether Nisan to Nisan, Tishri to Tishri, or even January to January, it holds true nonetheless that if the spring of 31 BCE is his seventh year, then the spring of 32 BCE is his sixth year, the spring of 33 BCE is his fifth year, and so on, making the spring of 37 BCE his first year (emphasis added; the argument would remain true if all instances of “spring” read “fall” instead).

The Filmerian Reinterpretation of Josephus

We will now undertake a point-by-point analysis of Steinmann’s case against the “Schürer consensus.” As observed above, he repeatedly emphasizes the significance of the de jure (in law) date of Herod’s Roman appointment over the de facto (in fact) date of taking Jerusalem. This is intimated as early as page 2, right after summarizing the main points favoring the 37 BC consensus for the start of Herod’s reign:

Despite this widely held opinion that Herod reigned from 40 (37) to 4 BCE, this was neither the consensus before Schürer nor has it gone unchallenged in the last half century. Most disturbingly, the Schürer consensus assigns only thirty-six years to Herod’s reign, thirty-three of them in Jerusalem, whereas Josephus reports the figures as thirty-seven and thirty-four respectively. All early Christian sources place the birth of Jesus after Passover in 4 BCE, with most of them placing it in sometime in late 3 or early 2 BCE (emphasis added).

Concerning these comments, three observations can be made:

First, we need to be clear: Herod did not in fact reign over the Jews from 40 BC on (or 39 BC, if one follows the Filmerian reinterpretation of Josephus), but from 37 BC (36 BC per Filmer and Steinmann). The “widely held opinion”—the “Schürer consensus”—views him in 40 BC merely as king-designate, and in Roman eyes only, until the city was actually taken and placed under his control. Antigonus, as we shall see, was the king of the Jews in every measure of the word—title (including on his coins, which bore the inscription BACILE?C ANTIΓONOY (of King Antigonus), see http://www.forumancientcoins.com/catalog/roman-and-greek-coins.asp?vpar=1063), government control, residence in Jerusalem, and acceptance as king by those he ruled—from 40 BC until Herod’s siege removed him and led to his death in 37 BC. This is surely a common sense observation, but it must unfortunately be specifically pointed out, lest the complex arguments put forth by Filmer and Steinmann obscure it.

Second, Steinmann asserts that the “disturbing” Schürer consensus contradicts the figures given by Josephus for the 37 and 34 years of his reign as measured from the Roman appointment and the taking of the city respectively. Actually, what is disturbing is this misrepresentation, for no conflict with Josephus can be found. Schürer himself wrote, in his note 165:

Herod died shortly before a Passover (Antiq. xvii.9.3; Wars of the Jews, ii.1.3), therefore in March or April. Since Josephus says that he reigned thirty-seven years from the date of his appointment, thirty-four years from his conquest of Jerusalem (Antiq. xvii.8.1; Wars of the Jews, i.33.8), it would seem as if, counting thirty-seven years from the year B.C. 40, he must have died in B.C. 3. But we know that Josephus elsewhere counts a year too much, according to our reckoning…The reason of this is that he counts portions of a year as a year [i.e., he counts inclusively]; and, indeed, he probably, according to the example of the Mishna, reckons the years of the king’s reign from Nisan to Nisan. If this be so, the thirty-fourth year of Herod would begin on the 1st Nisan of the year B.C. 4, and Herod must in that case have died between 1st and 14th Nisan, since his death occurred before the Passover. That this is indeed the correct reckoning is confirmed by astronomical date, and by the chronology of the successors of Herod (bracketed comment added).

Since at this time we will not discuss the death of Herod, we will skip over the last two lines (although we agree with them), and just note that there is nothing in what Schürer wrote to conclude that he disagreed with Josephus’ 37 and 34-year figures. His reasoning is actually predicated around accepting them as written. Neither did he accuse Josephus of error, as Steinmann does (“ Thus, Josephus is in error,” p. 7) in reference to his matchup of consular and Olympiad dates. (See also page 28, “Josephus made mistakes in Antiquities 14.389, 487 when reporting the consular and Olympian dating of the beginning of Herod’s reign.” The supposition that there was a direct conflict between Josephus’ equating the consular year of Calvinus and Pollio with the 184th Olympiad is addressed under “A Closer Look at the Consular Years,” below.) On the contrary, Schürer fully accepted those numbers and sought to understand them as Josephus and the Jews did, rather than imposing modern non-inclusive dating conventions upon them. The only contradiction is not with Josephus, but with the ultimately unsupported insistence of Filmer and Steinmann on using non-inclusive rather than inclusive reckoning, and that from Tishri rather than Nisan.

Third, he states that early Christian sources place the birth of Christ after 4 BC, generally in late 3 or early 2 BC. It should be pointed out, however, that those sources are not unanimous about a specific year, which indicates they reflect not accurate records but tradition (i.e., early Church hearsay). Jack Finegan’s Handbook of Biblical Chronology (p. 291) gives several dates suggested by early sources. Although it is true that a majority are listed as 3/2 BC, it should not escape our notice that these give a date range, and there are a number of outliers. To take these reports as authoritative is to depend on unproven tradition rather than a single well-attested year. If Luke, arguably the most historically picky of the New Testament writers, did not pinpoint the year for us, nor did any of the other inspired apostles who knew Him (and His mother Mary) best, we have no objective criterion for dating Christ’s birth, only old theologians’ tales. We must conclude, therefore, that early Church tradition gives us no clear year for the Savior’s birth, and therefore no conclusive help in pinpointing the year of Herod’s death.

Reinterpreting Three Incontestable Points

Beginning on page 8 of his article, Steinmann raises several critiques against 37 BC as the start of Herod’s de facto reign. He begins by presenting three incontestable points from Antiquities 14:

- Herod’s siege of Jerusalem ended during the consular year of Agrippa and Gallus, which coincided with the 185th Olympiad, “on the third month, on the solemnity of the fast”

- The city fell 27 years after it had under Pompey, on the same day

- The last Hasmonean, Antigonus, was put to death by Antony 126 years after the Hasmonean dynasty was first set up

Steinmann first admits (p. 9) that “the consular year and Olympiad given by Josephus indicates that Herod took Jerusalem in 37 BCE.” This is objective fact. But then he immediately makes two assertions with no such firm basis: “It was the Day of Atonement (“the fast”) on 10 Tishri in the Jewish calendar, but the third month (September) in the Greek calendar” (parentheses original, emphasis added). In what Josephus wrote there is no discernible indication that Greek months entered into the picture at all, nor reason to pivot from Greek months to Jewish days: “This destruction befel the city of Jerusalem when Marcus Agrippa and Caninius Gallus were consuls of Rome; on the hundred eighty and fifth olympiad; on the third month; on the solemnity of the fast” (Ant. 14.16.4). In the post-exilic era several Jewish months, including the third, were routinely designated by their order in the calendar rather than their Jewish names. Scripture itself demonstrates this in Esther 8:9, “in the third month (that is, the month Sivan),” where the parenthetical clarification is part of the verse, and in Ezekiel 31:1, “in the third month.” We can confidently expect Josephus followed that post-exilic convention. The parenthetical explanation in Esther 8:9 also demonstrates the standardized inclusive counting the Filmer camp denies, for Tammuz, not Sivan, would have been specified as the third month if the Jews had used actual, non-inclusive reckoning.

Steinmann’s assertions about the day and month of Jerusalem’s fall appear to arise not from what Josephus wrote, but from the Filmerian preoccupation with Tishri dating. There is no reason to suppose that Josephus, a Romanized Jew whom we already know—from his own words, no less—viewed Nisan as the first month of the year, would refer to a Greek month out of the blue, particularly without also naming it for his readers unfamiliar with Greek conventions (recall how he explained Xanthicus earlier). It also makes little sense that Josephus would flip-flop with his calendars, giving the month in Greek terms, but the day in Jewish terms. The odds are overwhelmingly against it. A straightforward understanding of the passage indicates the Jewish month of Sivan, the third month of the ecclesiastical calendar, was meant. This means “the fast” is impossible to assign to the Day of Atonement in Tishri, the seventh month. “The fast” has another more likely meaning, to be discussed later.

Steinmann then (p. 9) presents two other considerations which, he claims, “contradict” the 37 BC date indicated by both consular year and Olympiad reckoning. First, he says, the 27 years that passed after Pompey takes one to 36 BC, not 37 BC. Two problems exist here: first, he again assumes without supporting evidence that it was the Day of Atonement in Tishri, and second, he makes the further undemonstrated assumption that non-inclusive, actual dating was used. In short, he is using his (and Filmer’s) assumptions as the basis for claiming Josephus was in error, instead of trying to understand the data as Josephus understood it.

As for the second “contradiction,” Steinmann says that there is no evidence of any government by the Hasmoneans until 162 BC, therefore the 126 years had to be reckoned from 36 BC, not 37 BC. But as discussed in the previous article of this series, this overlooks the detail that Antiochus IV Epiphanes died in 163 BC, vacating the Syrian kingship over the Jews and defaulting to leaving the Hasmoneans in power. By recognizing this we can say that the Hasmonean dynasty endured for 126 years.

Three Considerations Favoring Actual, Non-Inclusive Years?

At this point in his article, it is apparent that Steinmann feels the pressure of the “Schürer consensus” against the Filmerian position he has staked out: “Nonetheless, the Schürer consensus could hold that the data given by Josephus here were reckoned by inclusive reckoning, making no conflict” (p. 10). Indeed, it not only could, but it does. But then he adds, “However, that Josephus was not using inclusive reckoning and that these data should be seen as reporting actual years is demonstrated by three more considerations” (p. 10). What are these considerations?

Supposed Conflict of the High Priest Chronology with the Consular Years

The first he owes directly to Filmer (p. 287): “Josephus also contradicts his own consular year for Herod’s conquest of Jerusalem by his chronology of the high priests.” The main assumption behind this is that Josephus used factual, to-the-day dating for the reigns of high priests, similar to the way the Romans reckoned the reigns of their emperors. But another assumption is less obvious: that Josephus’ account of Hyrcanus II and Antigonus views their “reigns” only as those of high priests, not kings. We will discuss this matter in detail below.

The Alleged Passivity of Sosius

The second consideration arises from a conflict Steinmann, again following Filmer (p. 286), sees in Dio’s Roman History, which he claims “casts doubt on the Schürer consensus that the conquest of Jerusalem occurred in 37 BCE.” Here I quote his argument in full (p. 11):

Concerning 37 BCE Dio states (49.23.1–2):

…during the following year [37 BCE] the Romans accomplished nothing worthy of note in Syria. For Antony spent the entire year reaching Italy and returning again to the province, and Sossius [sic], because anything he did would be advancing Antony’s interests rather than his own, and he therefore dreaded his jealousy and anger, spent the time in devising means, not for achieving some success and incurring his enmity, but for pleasing him without engaging in any activity (emphasis and brackets added).

Thus, Sossius would not have helped Herod—a man favored by Antony—capture Jerusalem in 37.

Rather than teaching that Sosius was entirely passive during 37 BC, the Dio passage merely tells us, and quite specifically, that the Romans accomplished nothing of note in Syria. The sense is that, lest personal successes in Syria might inadvertently offend the uninvolved Antony, Sosius likewise did nothing there. This text does not address activities Sosius might have pursued in Judea at Antony’s specific behest, however. Making the assumption that Sosius’ fear of affronting Antony paralyzed him into inactivity everywhere is entirely unwarranted. Since Dio emphasizes Sosius’ desire to please Antony, if Antony wanted him to help Herod with the siege of Jerusalem, of course he would! That is exactly what the text says in Antiquities 14.16.1: “Sosius [was] sent by Antony, to assist Herod.” The supposed problem Filmer and Steinmann see is nonexistent. Consistent with this, in Wars 1.17.2 Josephus elaborates a little further:

For after the taking of Samosata [in 38 BC], and when Antony had set Sosius over the affairs of Syria, and had given him orders to assist Herod against Antigonus, he [Herod] departed into Egypt; but Sosius sent two legions before him into Judea, to assist Herod, and followed himself soon after with the rest of his army (emphasis and brackets added).

This information is in direct conflict with the idea that Sosius “would not have helped Herod” to capture Jerusalem in 37 BC. Therefore, we can dismiss the Dio “problem” as being nothing of the sort for the “Schürer consensus.”

The Sabbatical Years

The third consideration adduced by Steinmann against a 37 BC fall of Jerusalem is tied to the Jewish sabbatical years. The sabbatical years are brought up in two places in Antiquities in conjunction with the start of Herod’s reign. Describing the siege undertaken by Sosius and Herod, Josephus records:

Now the Jews that were inclosed within the walls of the city, fought against Herod with great alacrity and zeal...and making use of brutish courage, rather than of prudent valour, they persisted in this war to the very last. And this they did while a mighty army lay round about them; and while they were distressed by famine, and the want of necessaries: for this happened to be a sabbatick year (14.16.2, emphasis added)

He continues the story in the next chapter, observing:

Nor was there any end of the miseries he [Herod] brought upon them [the defeated Jews]: and this distress was in part occasioned by the covetousness of the prince regnant [Herod was confiscating silver and gold wherever he could find them]; who was still in want of more; and in part by the sabbatick year, which was still going on, and forced the countrey to lie still uncultivated: since we are forbidden to sow our land in that year (15.1.2, emphasis and bracketed comments added).

These details give us a way to determine the year that Herod took Jerusalem, but only if we can identify with confidence at least one other post-exilic sabbatical year to synchronize with it. Once again following Filmer’s lead (pp. 289–291), Steinmann presents this argument (p. 11):

Finally, it should be noted that Herod besieged Jerusalem at the end of a Sabbatical year when food supplies were running low. This was the same situation in mid-162 BCE near the end of a sabbatical year. Thus, Tishri 163–Elul 162 was a Sabbatical year. Since the summer of 162 BCE fell during a Sabbatical year, the summer of 37 BCE could not have been a Sabbatical year. Instead, Tishri 37 BCE–Elul 36 BCE was also a Sabbatical year. Since food supplies would have been adequate at the beginning of the Sabbatical year, Jerusalem could not have fallen to Herod in Tishri 37 BCE as the Schürer consensus holds. Instead, Jerusalem fell at the beginning of the following year (Tishri 36), with the siege taking place during the summer of the Sabbatical year (summer of 36 BCE).

To begin with, I have no idea how Steinmann concluded that his “Schürer consensus” holds that Jerusalem fell to Herod in Tishri. None of the references I looked at that accept a 37 BC de facto start for the reign of Herod place the taking of Jerusalem in Tishri, but in early summer, generally the month of Sivan (June of 37 BC, cf. http://www.nowoezone.com/NTC04.html). This conclusion follows the logic that the “siege of five months” (Wars 1.18.2) began “after the rigor of winter was over” (Ant. 14.15.14) around February, and concluded in the “summer time” (Ant. 14.16.2), “in the third month” (Ant. 14.16.4) of the Nisan-based ecclesiastical calendar Josephus favors. No, those who follow Schürer do not think Jerusalem fell in Tishri.

Now, the validity of all of Steinmann’s sabbatical year reasoning, including the assertion that 163–162 BC was a sabbatical year, depends on first accepting the foundational premise of a Tishri-based, actual/accession-year/non-inclusive dating scheme, and then presuming on the accuracy of the sabbatical year determinations made by Ben Zion Wacholder (“The Calendar of Sabbatical Cycles During the Second Temple and the Early Rabbinic Period,” Hebrew Union College Annual 44 [1973], 153–193). Quite possibly under the influence of Filmer’s 1966 article, Wacholder decided to revisit the careful earlier study done by Benedict Zuckermann (Treatise on the Sabbatical Cycle and the Jubilee, translated by A. Löwy from the German original of 1856), and concluded Zuckermann’s dates for the sabbatical years were a year too early. Of particular note is that he concluded that 37-36 BC, Tishri through Elul, was a sabbatical year, aligning it with Filmer’s date for Herod taking Jerusalem.

So, which is more accurate for the post-exilic period, the sabbatical year determination of Wacholder, or the one by Zuckermann? A detailed discussion of the issues involved is given in a Wikipedia entry (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Historical_Sabbatical_Years) that references the work of many acknowledged authorities, such as Parker and Dubberstein, Edwin Thiele, and Jack Finegan. It also draws on the work of ABR's Dr. Bryant Wood and several ABR Associates, including biblical chronologist Rodger Young and Dr. Douglas Petrovich. After acknowledging that the geonim (medieval Jewish scholars) and the modern state of Israel follow Zuckermann’s approach, this significant admission seems to be depreciated in favor of a sympathetic focus on Steinmann’s views favoring Wacholder. Arguments are also presented there based on the Seder Olam in support of Wacholder’s dates, but they are ultimately rendered indecisive by translation uncertainties. Their uncertainty is compounded by the fact that the Talmud demonstrates that even the leading rabbis could not agree on when the sabbatical years after the Second Temple should be observed (for example, see the convoluted discussion given in Mas Arachin 12a–12b, http://halakhah.com/pdf/kodoshim/Arachin.pdf). Without a solid, objective basis for translating its problem passages bearing on the sabbatical years, the Seder Olam provides no conclusive help in choosing between the approaches of Zuckermann and Wacholder. We must look elsewhere for a basis to make the choice.

I believe we find this basis in the detailed analysis of sabbatical year evidences of Wacholder and Zuckermann presented by Bob Pickle. The above-cited Wikipedia article is incomplete without considering the balanced treatment Pickle sets forth (as well as Blosser’s study, see below), which would help readers better appreciate why, as the Wikipedia article admits, “there are many prominent scholars who still maintain a cycle consistent with Zuckermann’s conclusion of a 38/37 BCE Sabbatical year.” Pickle’s two online articles, “When Were the Sabbatical Years?” (http://www.pickle-publishing.com/papers/sabbatical-years.htm) and “Which Years Were the Sabbatical Years?” (http://www.pickle-publishing.com/papers/sabbatical-years-more.htm), are of such high quality, they should have been published in a scholarly journal. Here we merely summarize some of their key points.

Wacholder had presented ten lines of evidence for his sabbatical year determinations, and Pickle bases his study on them. They are:

The Pledge of Nehemiah 10:31
Alexander’s Grant of Tax Exemption
Judah Maccabee’s Defeat at Beth-Zur
Simon’s Murder
Herod’s Conquest of Jerusalem
Herod Agrippa’s Reading of the Law
Note of Indebtedness from Nero’s Reign
Destruction of Second Temple
Land Contracts of Bar Kochba
Tombstones from Zoar

For each of these topics Pickle examines the data, contrasts how the Zuckermann and Wacholder approaches deal with it, and draws conclusions about which does a better job at explaining the data. In his Introduction he asks, “So which proposal is correct? First of all, why does it matter? It matters because this question is pertinent to a study of the 70 w

That photo was taken by me on the Ganges at Varanasi. The quotation from the Rig Veda 10:129 is appended to the opening movement of Jonathan Harvey's Bhakti for chamber orchestra and quadraphonic tape. My recent reading has included Malcolm Tillis' 'Turning East: New Lives In India'. Malcolm Tillis was a viola player with the Hallé Orchestra in the 1950s and played in the first performance of Vaughan Williams' Eighth Symphony. His career as a musician ended prematurely however; coming to an abrupt hall after he took a year's leave of absence to write what proved to be an unexpectedly controversial book, as this account explains:
"Sir John Barbirolli, who was the principal conductor, knew I was writing a book, and he gave me a year's leave of absence in 1958 to write it," he says. But his portrayal of the poor pay and conditions, the lack of rest and the hours spent travelling the country as the orchestra tried to pack as many venues in as possible, was not at all well received by Barbirolli. "I was 31, and at that age I was very naive," says Malcolm. "It was never a criticism of Sir John, but he wouldn't speak to me after that. I thought if you told the truth people would respect you for it, but they didn't like the fact that I told it how it was. The book went into the best-sellers list, and I was on national television three times in 10 days, it was on the front pages of all the national papers. By then, I realised my career as a musician was over." The publication of the book sparked a national storm about life in the orchestra. Three members resigned, Sir John threatened to resign, and Malcolm was sent a solicitors' letter warning him of imminent legal action if he repeated any of his claims. "My wife Kate said it was time to get out of the country to get away from all the fuss, so we moved abroad."
After moving on the fringes of the counterculture in Italy and Ibiza, Malcolm Tillis and his wife the novelist Kate Christie settled in India for eleven years. 'Turning East: New Lives In India', which was published in 1989, comprises twenty interviews with Westerners who sought alternative ascetic lives in India. Among them is Bede Griffiths profiled in my still popular 2008 post This Man is Dangerous. Predictably given the provenance of the author, the arts and music are a recurring theme in the interviews.

During his sojourn abroad Malcolm Tillis developed as a collage artist using the batik technique, and at the age of 91 is still active as an exhibited artist. 'Turning East' is a condensed version of his original manuscript. An uncondensed edition with fifty interviews was printed in Varanasi in 2004 by Indica Books under the original title of 'New Lives'. All these interviews together with an introduction by Malcolm Tillis are available free online.

  • libgepub + rust

    In 2010 I was working with evince, the gnome PDF document viewer, trying to add some accessibility to PDF files. That was really hard, not because GTK+ or ATK technology but because the PDF format itself. The PDF format is really cool for printing because you know that the piece of paper will look the same as the PDF doc, and because it's vector it scales and don't loose quality and files are smaller than image files, but almost all PDF files have not any metadata for sections, headings, tablets or so, this depends on the creation tool, but it's really hard to deal with PDF content text, because you don't know event if the text that you're reading is really in the same order that you read from the PDF.

    After my fight against the PDF format hell and poppler, I discovered the epub format that's a really simple format for electronic books. An epub is a zip with some XML files describing the book index and every chapter is a xhtml and xhtml is a good format compared to PDF because you can parse easily with any XML lib and the content is tagged and well structured so you know what's a heading, what's a paragraph, etc.

    So I started to write a simple C library to read epub files, thinking about add epub support to evince. That's how libgepub was born. I tried to integrate libgepub in evince, I've something working, rendering with webkit, but nothing really useful, because evince needs pages and it's not easy to split an xhtml file in pages with the same height, because xhtml is continuous text and it adapts to the page width, so I give up and leave this branch.

  • My final report for GSoC 2018

    The Google Summer of Code 2018 is coming to an end for me, so it means that it’s time for the final report!

    [...]

    I’ve created a media (although for now it only works with pictures) viewer for Fractal. Its purpose is to easily have a better view of the images within a room, to be able to zoom in and out of them, to navigate between the different images of the room in the chronological order, to enter in a full screen mode and to save a copy of the media in the filesystem. I made a first implementation and then had to do a lot of other improvements. I’ve spent about a month working on it.

    There is still the need to improve the zoom of the media viewer as the pictures are a little bit blurred and it’s not possible to zoom beyond 100%. There are optimizations to do as the application becomes very slow when trying to zoom beyond 100% on large pictures.

  • GUADEC 2018

    A few weeks ago I attended GUADEC in Almeria, Spain. The travel was a bit of an adventure, because Julian and I went there and back from Italy by train. It was great though, because we had lots of time to hack on Fractal on the train.

    [...]

    On Monday I attended the all-day Librem 5 BoF, together with my colleagues from Purism, and some community members, such as Jordan and Julian from Fractal.

    We talked about apps, particularly the messaging situation and Fractal. We discussed what will be needed in order to split the app, make the UI adaptive, and get end-to-end encryption. Daniel’s work on the database and Julian’s message history refactor are currently laying the groundwork for these.

    On the shell side we talked through the design of various parts of the shell, such as keyboard, notifications, multitasking, and gestures. Though many of those things won’t be implemented in the near future, we have a plan for where we’re going with these, and getting designers and developers in one room was very productive for working out some of the details.

    We also discussed a number of exciting new widgets to make it easier to get GNOME apps to work at smaller sizes, such as a new adaptive preferences window, and a way to allow modal windows to take up the entire screen at small sizes.

    TRANSCRIPT:

     

     

     

    3:00 p.m. EDT

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Hi, everybody. How are you today? And why are so many of you showing up on an August afternoon? You’re supposed to all be on vacation or something, but I notice a few empty seats. But Gardiner’s back from vacation. Gardiner, welcome.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Thank you.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: How’ve you been?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: I’ve been good.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Good. A couple announcements to start before we get started with your questions today.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    First, I would like to express our condolences to the victims of the recent earthquakes and also the aftershocks in Indonesia. The United States has experts and partner organizations on the ground. We’re consulting with the Government of Indonesia at this time. We’re closely monitoring the situation, and we stand ready to provide additional aid to the Government of Indonesia. Our U.S. consulate personnel are assisting affected U.S. citizens. At this time, we do not have any reports of U.S. citizen casualties associated with the earthquakes. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Indonesian people. As many of you know, we were recently on the ground in Indonesia and had some terrific meetings with government officials there.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Next, I have some staffing news to bring you now. And I’m really excited about this one, because it affects our Bureau of Public Affairs and specifically the folks that you will working with. Today I’d like to announce that Robert Palladino will be joining our press team as the State Department’s deputy spokesperson. Robert is a career Foreign Service officer and I believe known well to some of you or perhaps many of you.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Over the past year, Robert has served as director of press and acting National Security Council spokesperson. In that role he’s helped to prepare Sarah Sanders for her briefings at the White House. He was also a spokesperson to the White House press corps and worked as NSC communications lead for both Asia and Europe. Robert’s Foreign Service career has included postings in Washington, where he worked for our Bureau of East Asian and Pacific Affairs, and the Office of the Under Secretary for Public Affairs and Public Diplomacy, and also on Capitol Hill. Overseas, he’s worked in Milan, Italy; Guangzhou, China; and also Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Prior to joining the State Department, he practiced law in Asia and Europe in the Army JAG Corps. His service included deployment to Rwanda. He is a graduate of Notre Dame University, Washington and Lee School of Law, the U.S. Army War College, and he also speaks Chinese and Italian. Pretty impressive.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    We are delighted that he is coming back to the State Department from the White House. I know you will enjoy working with him. For those of you who have not met him, he is a terrific guy. We’ve worked closely together for the past year or so. I asked him what his children thought, because he has two young girls – I asked him what they thought of his job, and I love these quotes. His youngest daughter said, “I’m proud of America and I’m proud of you, Dad, but it sounds really boring.” And then his older daughter said this – and you’ll appreciate it – “But wait a minute, everybody yells questions and they’re angry. That’s the worst job in the world.” That actually might be the White House press corps, not you all. But we look forward to welcoming Robert when he joins us on the 20th of August. But try not to bug him between now and then; he’s on vacation with his family. So another addition to our press family.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    And that’s it. With that, I’d be happy to take your questions.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Okay, thanks. We’ll try not to be so angry.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: I said not you all.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Let’s – me, yes me. I just wanted to ask you briefly before I ask you about Yemen. I noticed the statement that you guys put out about Zimbabwe, the Zimbabwe elections and the Zambian decision to deport the opposition leader.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Right.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: And in that statement it said that you are reviewing certain aspects of your cooperation with the Zambian Government. Can you be a little bit more specific? What aspects of --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Some of those will be conversations that will be had privately with both governments. But my understanding is that there are certain agreements in which that government was taking steps that the Zimbabweans weren’t completely familiar with and weren’t supportive of, and there were some concerns related to that. But let’s just --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: No, I understand, but I was just --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: But let’s just back up a couple steps for folks who’ve not been following this perhaps as closely as you have. Elections on July the 30th – those were promising, very promising. We thought it was a historic chance to sort of move beyond the political and economic crises of the past and toward a more democratic change and better dialogue in that country. People turned out massively in those elections. We put out a statement just after those elections complimenting them on those elections.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    However, the success in delivering an election day that was peaceful and open to international observers was then marred by violence, which we’ve been seeing and has been heavily reported, at least in the international press, over the past about week and a half. We’ve seen a disproportionate use of deadly force against protestors by the security forces, which is a great concern of ours. We’re concerned by those numerous reports of human rights violations since the elections had taken place about a week and a half or two ago. We have received credible allegations of detentions, of beatings, and other abuses of the people of Zimbabwe, particularly targeting opposition activists.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Now, the latest news today is the foreign – excuse me, the former minister of finance had left to go to Zambia. Zambia returned him to Zimbabwe, we understand. And some of this is still fresh so we don’t have all the details at this point. But I understand he was detained and possibly let go.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    So I’m going to pause there because some of this is still unfolding, and I don’t want to give you any inaccurate information since it’s still developing.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: I get that. I just wanted to know is this a threat to withhold or suspend some aid to Zambia when you say you’re reviewing certain aspects of our cooperation?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Matt, I’m not going to get into that at this point, but we’re watching the situation carefully.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: All right. Let me ask you about this airstrike in Yemen, which appears to have killed dozens of children. The Saudis obviously are the ones who conducted this, but they do that with weapons supplied by the U.S., with training supplied by the U.S., and with targeting information, targeting data, supplied by the U.S. How can something like this happen?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: How can something like that report happen?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Yeah.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Well, I think we would start by saying --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: It’s more than a report. I mean, it’s – they admitted that it happened.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Yeah. How can situations like this happen? We don’t have the full details about what happened on the ground. We’ve certainly seen the news reports of what has been reported happened, okay? I can’t confirm all the details because we are not there on the ground.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    We can say that we’re certainly concerned about these reports that resulted – that there was an attack that resulted in the deaths of civilians. We call on the Saudi-led coalition to conduct a thorough and transparent investigation into the incident. We take all credible accounts of civilian casualties very seriously. We call on the parties to take appropriate measures to protect civilians in accordance with international law and urge all parties to investigate all reported incidents of civilian casualties.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Okay. Well, they say – already the coalition says that they acted in accordance with international law. But if you look at the photographs, the video that come from the scene, it doesn’t look like that’s a really – that that’s a credible answer. So are you okay with the coalition on its own doing an investigation, or would you like to see some kind of an international component to it or an international investigation?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Well, I think I just answered that and we said that we would call upon the Saudi Government --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: So you’re --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: -- to do a full and thorough investigation, as we always do. And we call upon all parties in any kind of situation like this to take appropriate measures to try to mitigate the risk of civilian casualties.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: So you don’t think --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: DOD and other entities put out reports on this after the fact as they all start to investigate, and so we will look forward to any information on that.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Right. But my question is you don’t see a need for there to be something other than a coalition investigation, you don’t see a need for an independent --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Matt, I’m not going to get – this is something that is fresh, that just happened, so I’m not going to get ahead of any kind of investigation that may take place. Okay?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: It’s only the latest in a huge number of civilians killed during these operations though.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: I would encourage you to take a look – and that is we regret any loss of civilian life. That is something that the United States Government – in particular, any time you talk to the Department of Defense about civilian casualties, they will say the same thing --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Well --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: -- that – I’m not finished, okay? And they will say the exact same thing, that all parties take very strong responsibility and measures to try to protect against the loss of civilian life. As we have seen – and you all very rarely ask about the issue that has been unfolding and the devastation that has taken place in Yemen – let’s look at some of the things that have been happening in Yemen.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    You have the Houthi rebels who continue to attack Saudi Arabia. They continue to do that with Iranian weapons, missiles, and rockets. They continue to try to attack civilian infrastructure in Saudi Arabia, for example, and that is part of the reason why these actions are being taken.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Let me go back and remind you what I just said a moment ago, and that is we call for an investigation and we anticipate that a thorough investigation will be done. I don’t have anything more for you on that.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: The Secretary isn’t planning on having a conversation with --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: I don’t have any information for you on that. Okay.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Hi, Nick.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Is this – hey, Heather. Is this latest incident or the previous incidents causing the U.S. to re-evaluate in any way the role that it’s playing in the situation, in terms of its relationship with Saudi Arabia?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Look, we provide a tremendous amount of humanitarian assistance in Yemen to try to support civilians in Yemen and try to mitigate against the devastation that’s taken place there in that country. I don’t have anything more for you on that.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: But you also supply a tremendous amount of weaponry and the data for targeting to the Saudis.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Well, then – sorry.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Right? No?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: No.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Am I wrong? Is that wrong?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: That’s not wrong.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Sorry, these ladies over here are laughing. On that I would refer you to the Department of Defense that is involved with that, but as you know, Saudi Arabia is an important strategic partner in the region to the United States.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Okay. Hi, Gardiner.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Just a follow-up on that. Hey. So obviously, there’s growing concerns in Congress about the toll this war is taking within Yemen. It’s the worst humanitarian disaster on the planet. Aren’t you concerned that incidents like this will further erode congressional support and lead to further support for legislation that could cut off Saudi Arabia from arms sales and the rest?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: I mean, I think that is an entirely hypothetical question and we don’t comment on congressional proposals in any event, but I would ask – all of you have been very silent on the issue of Yemen, and times --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Well --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Although Said has asked. You’ve been the one reporter who’s asked a lot about Yemen and the situation there.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Well I would suggest that if you had more than two briefings a week and they lasted for longer than a half an hour or 40 minutes that you might get questions about something other than the actual main topic of the day.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Matt, I think you and I talk every single day.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Yes, we do.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: You have my phone number. You have all my numbers, and anytime you want to talk about Yemen, I’d be more than happy to answer your questions and provide you additional expert briefings --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Okay.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: -- on Yemen anytime anyone is interested, but I have not seen a major level of interest on the part of our press corps, with the exception of Said, on the issue of Yemen.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Yeah.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Why does that matter, though? There’s news today, so --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Yeah.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Can you request an expert on Yemen?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Yeah, certainly, I’d be happy to. Yeah.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Wait, so first of all, I think that when there have been attacks against Saudi installations or missiles and stuff, I think you’ve seen that there have been just as vigorous of reporting.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: I don’t – I disagree, but --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Well, I mean, that’s – it’s not our job to, like, sit here and go back and forth on that. We’re asking today. The U.S. has tried to increase its target training with – to try and improve the targeting of the Saudi coalition. Is that still continuing?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Elise, I think that would be a DOD issue, so I’d encourage you to talk with my --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: But these are foreign – okay, but these are foreign military financing.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Yeah, yeah.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Which is out of the State Department.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: And I would encourage you to talk to DOD about that. So some --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Well, maybe --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Some of this – some of this is a State Department equity, but much of this is Department of Defense, so I’d encourage you to talk with them about it.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Hey, Laurie.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Hi. On Iraq, the road between Erbil and Kirkuk, which was cut as a result of fighting last October, is being rebuilt, but Baghdad has said that it will establish a customs border on that road and collect revenues. Is that consistent, a customs border in the middle of the Erbil-Baghdad road, in which one party, the Iraqi Government, is going to collect revenues? Is that consistent with your view of a unified Iraq?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: I would – there are other countries that have done this in the past, including our own country years ago in which this type of thing has been done. I think this is largely an internal matter for the Government of Iraq, between Iraq and Erbil, to try to work out. We do encourage them to resolve any remaining issues between Baghdad and Erbil.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: You don’t have a position beyond that?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Look, we believe that a strong KRG government within a unified and federal Iraq is something that’s essential to Iraq’s long-term stability and the enduring defeat overall of ISIS.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Okay, if I could ask you about Turkey. So the deputy foreign minister was here; it seemed there was no progress. Is that the case? And was pastor – were the American hostages the only issues that were discussed or were there other questions like the Turkish purchase of the S-400 discussed as well?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Yeah. I mean, obviously you all know that we have a very broad relationship with Turkey and a host of issues that we talk about with the Turkish Government whenever we do meet. Yesterday we had a wide-ranging conversation with Turkish Government officials. We made it clear that Pastor Brunson needs to be returned home. Much of this, though, we’re not going to negotiate in public.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Can you tell us --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Go ahead. Hi.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Can you tell us if you made any progress about the situation of Pastor Brunson?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Yeah, I would say we would define progress as Pastor Brunson being brought home.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: So in other words, no.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: And so progress is --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Until he – until he’s --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Progress is Pastor Brunson being brought home to the United --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: So until he’s home there is no progress?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: -- to the United States.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Did you give any --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Yeah.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Did you give any deadline? Did you give Turkish officials any deadline?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: I don’t have any information for you on that.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Thanks. Hi.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: I think progress is kind of coming closer towards an agreement, like you’re not – you don’t have full North Korean denuclearization but you say that there is progress in working towards that goal. So is there progress in coming to some kind of deal with the Turks or are you still as far apart as you were the day that he was being hospitalized?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Yeah, I’m not going to characterize it that way. As you know, we had – we met yesterday. They had wide-ranging meetings at the State Department and with other departments here in Washington. I’d refer you to those other departments that met with the Turkish Government. The progress that we want to be made is to have Pastor Brunson return home. And I’ll leave it at that. Okay?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: So is that saying you will not engage with the Turks anymore on this issue until Pastor Brunson comes home?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: I’m not going to speculate on that, and I’m not going to get ahead of the administration on that issue. Hey, Said.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Hi. Thank you, Heather. Could we move – could you comment on the escalation in Gaza? There has been escalation in Israeli bombardment of Gaza as we speak.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: I’m sorry, start that over again.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: There is an escalation as we speak of Israeli bombardment of Gaza. They said that they killed a 23-year-old woman, pregnant, with her toddler. Do you have any comments on that?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Yeah. I mean, overall we’ve been watching this as it has been unfolding, and it’s a very concerning situation that has taken place in Gaza. Overall, we condemn the launching of missile attacks into Israel and call for an end to the destructive violence. We’ve seen reports that 180 or so rocket attacks have taken place, shot from Gaza into Israel, and we fully support Israel’s right to defend itself and to take actions to prevent provocations of that nature.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: But this last round of bombardment, Israeli bombardment, actually began by the Israelis. It was not Hamas that started this latest round.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Look, I’m not going to get into how this thing started. Let’s not forget that Hamas bears ultimate responsibility for the dire humanitarian situation in Gaza. It’s a tremendous concern of ours.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Okay. Let me ask you about the peace efforts that are taking place. Now, there are reports that the unveiling of the plan, the deal of the century, has been pushed back. Can – do you have any comment on that?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: I would object to the premise of the question, your statement in that question. We have not unveiled the peace plan at this time. That will be unveiled by Mr. Kushner and Mr. Greenblatt when it is ready. And when it’s ready to be unveiled, they will unveil it.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: And lastly, last week you guys released some funds or some aid to the Palestinian Authority. I believe it was sent to the security forces. Can you share with us the amount of that aid? Is that a one-time thing, or is it part of the sort of unfreezing of the funds to the Palestinian Authority?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: I’m going to have to get back to you on that issue. I don’t have any information for you on that today. Okay?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Russia?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Hi.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Russia?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Yeah, go right ahead.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Okay, two quick questions. First of all, on the sanctions that were announced yesterday, one of the requirements for Russia to avoid further sanctions is to allow inspections to make sure that they’re not using chemical weapons. Does the State Department have any reason to think that Russia is going to allow that? And is the U.S. expecting Russia to allow that?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: I mean, that’s asking us to look into the future, and we don’t know what the future holds. I think that’s a hypothetical question, so I don’t have an answer for you.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: But the U.S. is fully expecting to have some kind of inspections take place, then, according to this law?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: I don’t have anything for you on that today, and I’m not going to get ahead of anything that happens in the near future. Okay?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Okay, well, that’s what the law says.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Yep.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: But my other question is on the – is the U.S. then currently preparing for this next round of sanctions, then?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: As you well know, we don’t forecast sanctions. We have complied with the law in announcing those sanctions just yesterday, and we will comply with the law going forward, of course, as we always would. Okay?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Heather, just to get a follow-on on that?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Yeah, sure. Hi, Gardiner.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: So you – in the case of Iran, you have this 12-point plan of what behavior you want the government to implement in order to lift sanctions. You have a whole series of sanctions that are now revolving around Russia having to do with CAATSA, Magnitsky, now weapons. Can you give us some global sense of what these sanctions are trying to achieve from an American foreign policy perspective? What are you looking for from Russia? Why do we have sanctions on them? What’s your goal? And when’s the – when’s the periodicity of these things?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Sure. I think I would start by answering that question with this: That we approach every country very differently. Every country that we have a relationship or even countries that we don’t have relationships with are viewed through a separate lens. So what may be appropriate for one country is maybe not necessarily appropriate for another country.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    The United States Government has determined that sanctions can be a very effective tool in trying to bring various governments to the table to negotiate with us or try to encourage countries to comply or to return to a better set of behaviors. So this is one tool that we have in a very big toolkit. The State Department works closely with Treasury and OFAC and other entities to implement, study, and enforce sanctions, and that is part of what you’ve seen yesterday. Let’s remember that one of the things that has brought North Korea to the table is sanctions. And we have found sanctions to be very effective in many cases around the world. So the U.S. Government looks at that as an overall tool.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Right, so North Korea is a great example. Sanctions – as a result, you want to get rid of their nuclear program. Again, Iran, you’ve got a list of 12 things. Venezuela, you’ve got sort of a clear list. I’m trying to understand what your policy is with Russia. You’ve got a variety – myriad now of sanctions. What’s your goal?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Well, I think the President has addressed this and so has Secretary Pompeo. We’d like to have a better relationship with the Russian Government, recognizing that we have a lot of areas of mutual concern. It is a major country; we are a major country as well. And so when you have that, you are forced to have to have conversations with other governments. And sanctions is a way that we can try to encourage better behavior on the part of government. Now, I’m speaking in a broad-based sense, but that’s one way that we can encourage better behavior. Okay.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Same topic?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Could I ask a follow-up on that?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: (Off-mike)

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Sure. What is your name, miss?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: My name’s Emily, I’m from Buzzfeed News.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Emily, hi.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: So if these sanctions are in part meant to encourage better behavior with Russia, Russia today came out and said that these sanctions – sort of as was expected – that these sanctions are not in keeping with the spirit of Helsinki. So – and I understand these sanctions were – they’re in keeping with the law, et cetera, but does this – or to put it a different way, is the cooperation that was sort of established at Helsinki – is the U.S. Government still planning on having that with Russia after yesterday’s sanctions?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: We tend to believe that dialogue is always an important issue. I think I had just addressed this with Gardiner, and that is trying to build a better relationship with countries that we need to cooperate with or we need to be able to have relations with, and that would be one example.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: And then just on the other point on the second tranche, and I don’t mean to get you into hypotheticals, but yesterday at the briefing they did say that if Russia doesn’t do certain things, including sort of admit wrongdoing and say that they weren’t going to do it again, that there would be second tranche. And today, Russia said this is ridiculous, we didn’t do that. So if they keep that position for the next 90 days, won’t there – won’t there, under the law, have to be a second tranche?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: And that’s why I would go back and say that we will comply with the law. We are well aware of what the law contains; we will comply with the law. But I’m not going to get ahead of what could happen 90 days from now. Okay.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: The same topic – same topic?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: (Off-mike)

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Janne, go right ahead.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Thank you, thank you, Heather. On North Korean and South Korean issues.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Okay.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: And – recently, South Korea imported North Korean coal. What is the U.S. position on the smuggling of North Korean coal into South Korea? Is that – do you think this is the – South Korea has violated sanctions?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: I think – we’d say this: that we have a great relationship with the Government of South Korea. My understanding is that they are looking into reports of this. We encourage all countries to maintain sanctions, and to not skirt sanctions and make sure that sanctions are adhered to.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: But two days ago, John Bolton, national security advisor, and South Korean national security advisor Chung Eui-yong, they had telephone conversation and John Bolton said that he trust or believe in the South Korean Government. What does it mean that you trust the South Korean Government, so --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Well, the Government of the Republic of Korea is an ally and longstanding partner of ours, and we closely coordinate with that government.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: But allies – but they do something behind the United States is smuggling something else, so how you going to trust them?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Look, we trust when they say that they will investigate that they will investigate. We closely coordinate with them. They’ve been longstanding allies and partners, and we have a strong relationship with them.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Are you still investigations or waiting --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: I don’t have anything more for you on that, okay?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: All right, thank you.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Thanks.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: (Off-mike.)

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Kylie, go right ahead.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: So there’s been discussion of potentially having another meeting with North Korea. Has there been any progress on that that --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: We have no meetings, no travel plans to announce today, and by the way, we just got back from a long flight, which I will remind you was a very long flight. Headed over to Asia, a long flight back. We’re okay with being here for a while.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: All right.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: (Off-mike.)

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Okay. Hi. Go ahead.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Well wait, can I just follow up real quick on that?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Just hold on, hold on, hold on. He asked first. Go right ahead.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Oh, I’m sorry.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Yes. So about the North Korean coal, yeah. And South Korean Government is going to announce the result of investigation about North Korean coal smuggling maybe later today. So now the issue is that – whether the United States is going to apply the second boycott to the Korean companies, which it appears to be violated the sanctions. So I just wonder whether you are going to apply the secondary boycott to the companies.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: I think I just answered that, that the investigation was initiated by the Government of South Korea, and we will wait to hear from them on any announcements with regard to that, okay?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    And we’re going to have to wrap it up in just a minute. Elise, go right ahead.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Just on the – you said there’s nothing new to announce. Are the delegations trying to get another negotiating session? Like your team in Asia, are they trying to get another negotiating session together with the North Koreans?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Look, I mean, I can tell you we continue to have conversations virtually every day, every other day or so --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: With the North Koreans?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: -- with the North Koreans, and when I say “conversations,” that can be by phone, that can be my message, that can be by email. Those are – they take different forms, those conversations do. So we continue to have conversations with the government. When – if and when we have travel announcements to make, I will certainly let you know, but we have nothing yet.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: But I mean, obviously that you’ll make those announcements, but I’m just wondering if like – if there is efforts being made to put together another negotiating session.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: I don’t have anything for you on that right now.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Can I have one question on the sanctions?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Okay? Okay. Sir, go right ahead.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Yeah. Just to follow up, you said you have nothing planned, but Mr. Bolton mentioned that in the letter that Secretary Pompeo gave to Foreign Minister Ri, there was an offer to meet. Has North Korea responded to that offer yet?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: I don’t have any information for you on that. This was a letter from the President to Chairman Kim, so I don’t have any visibility on what was actually in that letter or what conversations the White House may or may not be having. I’d have to refer you to the White House for anything on that.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: So you can confirm that there was an offer?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: I can confirm there was a letter. Anything that the White House has said about that or Ambassador Bolton has said about that, I’d refer you back to them on those matters. When I have something to let you know, I certainly would be happy to.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Okay, last question.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: (Off-mike.)

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Yeah.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Two days ago, President Trump claimed most Chinese students in the United States are spies. I’m not asking you to comment on what he said, but State Department as a agency to issue visa to Chinese students, do you share the view – do you think most Chinese students in the United States are spies?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Yeah, I don’t have the President’s comments in front of me. I have not seen those comments, so I would hesitate to comment on his comments without having read it and had the full context. As you are well aware, we have many Chinese students studying in the United States. We have strong people-to-people ties with the Government of China, but of course there are concerns with some who might come into the United States and try to pick up some of our technology and other information and bring it back home for reasons that the United States Government would be concerned about. But we have a strong relationship with China and we enjoy having students studying in the United States from China, and I’ll just leave it at that.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Okay, thanks. We’ve got to go, guys. We’ll see you soon.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    (The briefing was concluded at 3:28 p.m.)

Легендарний британський супертяж Леннокс Льюїс назвав найбільш значущі поєдинки у своїй кар'єрі.

          Is This The End Of The Crocs Trend? The Shoe Maker Closes Remaining Manufacturing Facilities      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Crocs Inc will close all manufacturing facilities

Crocs shoes. Some people love them. Many people abhor them. Regardless, they have been a fashion statement of some sort or another since they burst onto the radar as boating shoes in 2002. Now, it seems there might be a downward trend in their favor as the shoemaker gets set to close the last of their manufacturing facilities.

According to CBC News, Crocs Inc. will close all of its remaining manufacturing facilities. The facility in Mexico has already been closed, and the remaining one in Italy is set to be closed at some point in the future according to a statement in the official press release.

“In connection with ongoing efforts to simplify the business and improve profitability, during the second quarter, the Company closed its manufacturing facility in Mexico and moved ahead with plans to close its last manufacturing facility, which is located in Italy.”

Saint Clare, Virgin

Memorial

Saint Clare was born in the 12th century in Assisi, Italy. The eldest daughter of the Count of Sasso-Rosso, her upbringing was sophisticated yet pious. In her late teens, Saint Clare heard Saint Francis of Assisi preach and it ignited in her a desire to follow Christ in a similar way. Shortly after, she left her family home in the night and consecrated her life to Christ.

Her rich garments were laid down, her hair cut off, and vows taken. Saint Francis took Saint Clare to San Paolo and placed her in the care of Benedictine nuns. When her father found out, he was furious. Saint Clare transferred to another monastery, with the help of Saint Francis, and her sister joined her in holy vows within a month. Saint Francis established a community for them, and other women, at San Damiano and the Second Order of Saint Francis was born; later called the Poor Clares. Initially, a Benedictine rule was established for these daughters but to Saint Clare, it lacked an essential element prominent within the Franciscan charism, absolute poverty.

Throughout her life, Saint Clare championed for ‘Lady Poverty’ and in 1253, Pope Innocent IV granted her unique community rule approval. As abbess, Saint Clare nurtured women in Christ and sent daughters planting convents all throughout Europe. Saint Clare was canonized two years after her death by Pope Alexander IV and the Church of Santa Chiara was built in her honor. [1]

Ⅱ. 이탈리아의 통일: 카보우르 가리발디를 중심으로 1. 통일의 배경과 원인 1) 당시 유럽 질서의 상황 당시 유럽은 이탈리아 내에 다수의 왕국이 존재하며 그 주변에도 여러 강대국이 존재하는 형상을 띄고 있었다. 여러 강대국 중 영국은 산업 혁명으로 성공을 거두고 식민지화에 열중하고 있었으며 프랑스는 나폴레옹 3세가 황제에 올라 강력한 국가로 성장하고 있었다. 프로이센은 강력한 군사력을 가지고 있었으며 러시아는 기회를 틈타 지중해로 남하하려는 야욕을 품고 있었다. 2) 이탈리아의 정치적 상황 이탈리아는 르네상스부터 나폴리와 시실리 왕국 등 교황령과 다수의 왕국 자치도시 소 공국들로 분열되어 현실정치의 세계가 나누어진 군웅할거의 난세에 처해있었다. 이후 18세기 더 나아가 19세기까지 사르데냐 루카 모데나 교황령 양(兩)시칠리아 등 여러 개의 김규빈. 2006. “비스마르크의 독일 통일정책 분석: 클라우제비츠 ”전쟁론의 삼위일체“를 중 심으로.” 『군사평론』제 383호. 강철구. 2009. “19 20세기의 민족주의 발전.” 『프레시안』 (6월 9일) 생활문화. 김용구. 2000. 『세계외교사』. 서울대학교출판부. 김장수. 2009. 『비스마르크 : 독일제국을 탄생시킨 현실정치가』. 파주 : 살림출판사. 량치차오 저 신채호 역. 2001. 『이태리 건국 삼걸전』. 서울 : 지식의 풍경. 미하엘 슈튀르머 저 안병직 역. 2003. 『독일제국 1871~1919』. 을유문화사. 박래식. 2006. 『이야기 독일사』청아출판사. 엘렌 브라바르테브네 저 백선희 역. 2003. 『오토 폰 비스마르크』. 동아일보사. 제레미 블랙 저 박수철 역. 2009. 『역사를 바꾼 위대한 장군들』. 21세기북스. 조나산 로즈 저 이기동 역. 1990. 『비스마르크』. 서울 : 대현출판사. 허인. 1991. 『이탈리아사(세계각국사8)』. 대한교과서주식회사. 후지사와 미치오 저 임희선 역. 1997. 『이야기 이탈리아사』. 일빛. age-of-the-sage.org.

I think Ukraine's performance in Quals just put the fear of God into Oleg to get ready for Worlds. Without him, Ukraine might not qualify a full team to the Olympics (or you know... qualify to try to qualify a full team to the Olympics). Hey, Oleg Stepko... it's kind of cold in Siberia, and the Russian team doesn't love you very much. Maybe you should consider moving back to the Ukraine. Russia is ... Russia. The Russian women showed up looking like a different team between Quals and TF. Hopefully, the Russian men will show up to TF looking like the same team. If not, then we will be making Chernobyl jokes for a long time. So happy for Germany (especially Toba), France, Turkey and Italy. I generally forget Italy fields a men's team.

For your consideration is my Beretta 85FS Cheeta in stainless. Made in Italy. This 380 is in excellent condition. Comes with a hard plastic case and FOUR magazines. This rugged piece feels great in the hand and shoots just as well. The fact it's stainless is a plus. Contact me with questions.

My price is the price. It is presented at a more than fair cost to save us both time on negotiation and frustration. $600 cash takes it.

“Your snarly singer-guitarist in the latest line up of this doughty girl-grunge trio. Shades of Courtney, Brody and L7”

Kerrang! Magazine
“Led by Princess Maha, this is a neat twist on grunge pop”

Q Magazine
"There's a slice of angst-offloading gutter rock that's a kissing cousin of Hole, but The Kut's scuzz-covered family tree also stretches further back to the garage rampages of The Stooges.”

Clash Magazine
“New single 'Mind Games' leads the way, and it finds the three-piece blazing a trail for others to follow. Glamorous rock 'n' roll with a punk edge”

Metro
“This trio of multi-talented girls with a ‘90s grunge alt-rock sound have been touring all over Europe”

Metal Hammer
"The Kut are like the bastard lovechild of Courtney Love and Marilyn Manson with awesome riffs and chaotic live shows"

Classic Rock Magazine
"Marks the precise point in the Venn diagram where L7 meets I Wanna Be Your Dog meets Courtney Love, which is equal parts terrifying and a cause for long and rowdy celebration. Punk's not dead, pass it on.”

Planet Rock Radio
"grungy sounds nod towards everyone from Hole to Nirvana to L7 and The Distillers, yet despite wearing their inescapable influences on their sleeves, crucially they have their own indelible, attitude-packed imprint."

The worldwide market for Ball Mill (Mining) is expected to grow at a CAGR of roughly -0.2% over the next five years, will reach 460 million US$ in 2023, from 460 million US$ in 2017, according to a new GIR (Global Info Research) study.
As Chinese overall economic downward trend in the past few years, and international economic situation is complicated, in the next few years there will be many uncertainties for Ball Mill industry. Attracted by the market profits, more and more companies have entered into Ball Mill industry, the competition between manufacturers at home and abroad is fierce for the time being.

Ball Mill demand has a certain space, but basically showing the scarcity of high-end products due to technology barrier and excess capacity of low-end products. There is increasing demand for high-end products.

Despite the presence of competition problems, due to the clear global economy recovery trend and industry profits, investors are still optimistic about this area; there will be more investments to enter the field.

Along with the development of Chinese domestic Ball Mill industry, the performance distance will shorten gradually, compared with the imported.

As large demand of high-end products at home and abroad, many companies begin to focus on the field of high end. Currently, the Chinese Ball Mill industry tries to transit to high-end Ball Mill field actively, as well as extends downstream industry chain.

Although sales of Ball Mill brought a lot of opportunities, the study group recommends the new entrants just having money but without technical advantage and downstream support do not enter into the Ball Mill field abruptly.

In recent years, construction machinery, mining machinery develop rapidly, in this area, energy-saving ball mill equipment becomes one of the faster-growing mining machinery and equipment. Therefore, many domestic machinery manufacturers made the ball mill, crusher related products as the company's flagship product, and have increased investment and research and development efforts, as an effort to take a chance to compete with other manufacturers and look forward to sharing the considerable potential profits.

In addition, from China's economic development we can conclude that in the process of urbanization and industrialization, highway, railway, water conservancy and other major infrastructure investment continues to increase, and forming a rigid demand to the ball mill equipment, at the same time, this fact will promote the ball mill sales.

In this era of rapid changes of market competition, ball mill manufacturers should know how to grasp the opportunity and seize market opportunities, in order to take a place for the development of the industry.

          ST. VALENTINE'S DAY      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The organic Pagan fertility origins behind this contemporary celebration

The early Church was highly skilled at transforming the spiritual loyalties and traditions of the Pagan populace over to the new intolerant monotheistic credo. 

Elated Pagan spring festivities, relating to love and desire, came under the iron-fisted conversion remit of the sexually-repressive Church. Therefore, let us explore this matter in more detail. 

Click here to enlarge top photo.

Valentine who? 

 

The St. Valentine narrative is a typical Christian fable, with historical authorities and Church scholars not even really agreeing on the supposed origins of the saint in question. 

The Feast of St. Valentine was originally established in 496 by Pope Gelasius I. Gelasius inferred that nothing was known about this saint, although some churchmen later suspected that he ‘may’ have been a priest or a bishop; although they really had no idea what they were talking about. 

The Church in fact gives a mixed up hotchpotch of various unsubstantiated accounts that may relate to one man or perhaps three regarding someone who may have once been called Valentine. Naturally, the obedient faithful are expected to take all this pious spin as some sort of gospel truth, but about what or ‘who’ exactly is not quite certain.

The bogus nature of the beast was that the self-satisfied Church greedily grabbed at ‘any’ virtuous candidate to fill the position of an alleged holyman (saint) to base this festival on so that the original Pagan one could be crushed, lost and later superseded.   

The Lupercalia, Feralia & the Terminalia

We do nonetheless know that St. Valentine’s Day is roundly based on the much earlier Lupercalia.  This was one of the most primeval of Roman festivals, which was celebrated every year in honour of Lupercus, the god associated with fertility. 

 

The festivity was held on the 15th of February in a cavern called the Lupercal, where Romulus and Remus were supposed to have been nurtured by the She wolf. 

Incidentally, I remember as a child my father having an incredible black metal figurine of the She wolf. This he had brought home from the war when fighting the Nazis in Italy. 

Popular fertility traditions from this time found their way through the ages into the modern sexual-bonding ritual that is now called St. Valentine’s Day. Of course the Church realised the esteem of the earlier Pagan festivities, so craftily incorporated them into its own culture. 

February is frequently a chilly austere month when little seems to stir in the natural world.  The old farmers’ country idiom, ‘February fill Dyke’ alludes to the copious amounts of rain often experienced in this cold period.  This unwelcoming month gains its name from the Etruscan god of the underworld and purifications, Februus. This deity is often equated with the Greek god Pluto/Hades and also the Gallic God of riches, Dis who further links with the Roman Orcus.  

On the 17th or 21st of February, Februus was venerated during a feast known as the Feralia.  During this event marriages were not allowed, all other shrines and temples of other gods were closed and gifts taken to the last resting places of deceased relatives/friends. 

The Manes (souls of the departed) were believed by the Romans to hover around the monuments and graves of the dead, thus the presents served as a token of respect and propitiation for these spirits.  The Manes held much power in the underworld and because of this the Romans realised that only a fool would fail to give them the reverence they so rightly deserved.  Modern man can learn a lot about his/her subconscious fears of death and dying by relating intimately to this ancient festival.  The number three was considered sacred to the Manes and because of this they were always invoked three times by adherents.  Could the old maxim of three being unlucky or lucky for some have a connection here?  Gravestones were frequently inscribed with the prefix ‘D.M.’ meaning ‘Di Manes’ (or Di-Manibus) which is Latin for “The good gods."  The celebration of the Feralia was also called the Februa.  The great prevailing goddess Juno was however frequently invoked under this title.  Her patronage like that of the Gallic Dis also extended over riches.  

The purification aspect of this festival still remains with us today.  We still feel the urge with the dawning of the lighter nights to get stuck in and have an energetic bout of spring-cleaning.  The difference is that the Romans also did their spring cleaning on the ‘spiritual’ level.  Modern man would probably feel a lot more at one with himself and his/her environment if he took a page from the wisdom of the Feralia!  

Moving to the 23rd of this month we discover a feast called the Terminalia, which as its name suggests, was sacred to Terminus, god of Limits and Boundaries. Numa, the renowned second King of Rome introduced the feast of the Terminalia to the people.  Terminus was originally depicted by a simple marker-stone.  Later he was portrayed as a human head without arms and legs to show that, like limit marks, he never moved his position. Incidentally, it is interesting to note here that Jupiter (the all-powerful King of the gods) was often called Terminalus and he also presided over boundaries long before Terminus did. 

It is quite probable then that this surname of Jupiter later evolved into the existing god-form that is now Terminus.  Offerings of wine, oil, flowers and milk were given to the deity at this feast.  So holy was the head of Terminus that should another man unwisely attempt to steal or even move it he rendered himself open to possible public execution.  This instance proves how extremely important property was to the pragmatic Roman mind.  

To get a ‘head’ start by robbing a neighbour's land could lead to actually losing one's ‘head’ in the most devastating fashion possible as Terminus had no time for infringements of his law.  His wrath was swift and exceptionally effective indeed.

 

Resurrection, deliverance & elation of a personal Pagan kind

Today's Pagans (who are unobstructed by monotheistic constraints and remorse) view early pre-Christian, spring equinox feasts such as the Terminalia as a time to synchronise with the growing natural cosmic energies of which we are all an intrinsic part.  It is a time to plan carefully for the future with increasing buoyancy.  

The spiritual level of existence is just as important as the material and vice versa, so to neglect one aspect jeopardizes the rest.  One cannot exist without the other. The primary gentle stirrings of light, the rich colour of the crocus and the bursting buds of the horse chestnut give hope for the warm, lengthening, summer days to come.  The old Terminalia is (like all ancient pre-Christian feasts) a vestige of our extraordinary Pagan heritage, waiting as patiently as the first snowdrop to be reborn again anew.  

Soon the glorious solar orb will bring forth life and new growth.  Every plant, tree and animal will be ready to greet this time-honoured event. Contemporary man must shake off his/her self-inflicted, materialistic slumber and synchronise himself to the seasonal psychic forces of nature, just as his ancient forefathers did long ago.  Failure to do so will result in a loss of essential atonement (At-one-ment) and vitality with this marvellous home that we affectionately call ‘Mother Earth.’  Like the swelling buds on the woodland trees, we too must now awaken to the annual universal energies impinging upon our being. The mysterious symphony of nature’s call is irresistible and merely grows stronger with every passing, seasonal tide. The solitary witch dances joyfully in the cold night air within the depths of the green wood. She/he intimately understands this natural relationship betwixt man and the planet and beyond. 

The ‘ecstasy’ (or perhaps even salvation) so yearned for, is here and it is now under the pale luminosity of the full moon. It effortlessly crosses all barriers of perceived logic and all levels of assumed reality without care or prejudice. It is our Pagan birthright.  The witch needs no glossy book, no sombre house of prayer, or no priestly instruction to simply FEEL the awesome, unprocessed forces that enter our beings on all planes of existence. An open heart, mind and soul are the only qualifications required to experience elation with the connection in nature that is just there for the taking. 

The ecstasy – the blessing of the old gods is here, and it is available for all who approach with a sincere heart. If you, dear reader, feel empathy (no matter how slight) with my words then you are on the pathway to much more. If you fail to comprehend my words at this stage then your journey may be a little longer. 

Many seekers instinctively feel the wild call, and then sadly permit their indoctrinated souls to reject it. Hearts, minds and spirits must be opened wide to allow us to fly high onto higher planes of existence. Our Pagan ancestors didn't worship nature, as is so often claimed by ridiculous monotheistic troublemakers.  No; our wise forebears actually venerated the pivotal life-creating (or destroying) forces ‘behind’ nature's copious moods and eventually personified them for greater understanding. 

This fixation we call ‘life’, and grasp so dearly, is only a tiny part of the greater whole, yet to be experienced. 

Today's Pagans strive to preserve this evolutionary process for the future benefit of our wonderful species and the planet itself. We have two principal choices: to be wholly connected, or alternatively to be separated from the organic home of which we are all an intrinsic part.

Opening: 2018/09/08, 16:00-18:00 Duration: 2018/09/08 – 2018/10/21 (Tue.-Sun. 11:00-18:00, Mon. Closed) Address: ShanghART Shanghai 1F, West Bund, Bldg.10, 2555 Longteng Avenue, Xuhui District, Shanghai, China 200232 www.shanghartgallery.com This September, ShanghART Gallery will be honored to host an exhibition of works by artist Wu Yiming, “Painting the Banal”. These works are a continuation of the artist's experiments in the use of a spare and refined painting style over the past few years. Full of expressiveness, they reveal the feelings, the literary sensibility and the spiritual value of contemporary imagery as it is shaped by the ink. Thanks to creative efforts that have grown increasingly personal in recent years, Wu Yiming's works have blazed for themselves a “Third Way” in between contemporary pictorial consciousness and the traditional spirit of Chinese painting. By depicting scenes of everyday life, they pierce through to the deepest sensorial layer of our experience of the present. Although these works appear to reference the frankness and concision of traditional freehand brushwork, there is more to them. In the ordinary glimpses of life that Wu depicts, flowers, tree shadows or city lights are no longer presented before our eyes with the matter-of-factness of "objects"; indeed, they are replaced with experience itself, directly rendered and laid bare with the vividness and the expressive power of ink and brush strokes. In the words of Italian curator Monica Dematte, “by choosing the medium that he feels he is most in tune with, and by considering the reason behind this choice, the artist engages in a deep self-analysis that allows him to view himself more clearly and to formulate a unique, subjective interpretation of the world.” As a result, “Painting the Banal” refers both to the production of a visual representation within the painting, but also to a reiteration on the picture plane of the artist's experience of painting itself. What it reflects is rather a subjective visual consciousness than a result; it stands for the resistance of an individual being, by means of his concrete experience of reality and of his own emotions, against the spiritual crisis so evidently manifested by contemporary life. It is also on this level that one may notice most clearly the new strides accomplished by Wu Yiming in his practice over recent years. While his early works would always make both the public and art critics waver between the Chinese tradition, Western contemporaneity, "New Ink" or other movements in choosing the frame of historical judgment or theoretical awareness to consider them, Wu's recent works increasingly elude such constraining frameworks, and instead, display a mature tranquility in which the artist is free to do as he pleases, without ever going astray. “A flower is a flower, a tree is a tree”: this is precisely the self-sufficient state that is brought about by an abundant experience of painting—and it constitutes the deepest spiritual core of the “Painting the Banal” However, on the other hand, the "freehand-painted" things, sceneries, light, or shadows are but depicted objects; the actual subject, hidden behind the canvass, is in fact the artist himself. Therefore, the “Painting the Banal” can be viewed to large extent as the collision and the fusion on the picture plane of “minor” painted objects with a “major” human. Indeed, for the artist, the poetry of everyday life is evoked in between the frankness of brush strokes and the unspeakableness of experience. In the Shepherd's Purse series, which gathers new works from 2018 that form part of this exhibition, the public is granted a glimpse of the artist's depiction and understanding of objects, in between being and nothingness. This wild vegetable, beloved of the Chinese, has a most simple and unadorned appearance; however, drawn in Wu's ink, it is endowed with a blooming, enchanting vitality, and expands like a voice suddenly resonating through silent space. As for the Curtains series, it displays a scenery of a different spirit altogether: the perspective of these paintings brings to mind the most ordinary moments of life, as if they were corridors of time, their shapes at once blurry and mottled, shuttling back and forth within our consciousness. Besides those meticulously depicted colors and patterns of curtains and vegetables, in Wu's Light series and in his representations of urban sceneries, which he has worked on continuously over the past two years, one can also clearly sense this “slowness” of time. It is experience itself, revealed on the canvass, but also an act of contemplation and introspection carried out by the artist in the silence of his solitary corner.

 The History of the United States Part 5 (1865-1918)  The First Era

This time period of American history was an extraordinary transformative era. Everything changed in America after the U.S. Civil War. The North and the South (including the Midwest plus the West) became more industrialized. More Americans moved into the cities from rural locations. Many black people gained rights, but the racist backlash of Jim Crow apartheid harmed real black progress in the evils of lynching, violence, the burning of locations, rape (especially the rape of black women by white racist terrorists), and the denial of inherit voting rights. The era of Reconstruction saw historic first among many black politicians and many saw hope for the future, but it ended by 1877. Likewise African Americans formed numerous organizations and other institutions courageously to defend the human rights of black people. The end of the 19th century saw Native Americans continuously losing their lands, having their treaties broken, and many of them forced to live in harsh reservations, which was a total injustice. Immigrants came into America in the realm of 27.5 million people between 1865 and 1918). These new immigrants experienced both discrimination and hardships. Yet, they also made outstanding contributions to American society (from inventions to a myriad of cultural developments). The Gilded Age signified the growth of large corporations including robber barons. Also, it was a time where the labor movement increased in power in which they executed strikes in order for them to promote living wage,s better working conditions, and ending child labor. By the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century, the Progressive era developed. It did numerous goods things in helping the poor, creating legitimate regulations to promote safety, promoting conservation including environmental protections, and holding companies accountable for their actions. Their weaknesses were that many of them ignored racism that harmed the lives of black Americans and some of them advanced the evil of eugenics.

The women suffragists fought for women to have the right to vote in America (plus worldwide) and by 1920, they were victorious in their determined efforts. This was a time when American imperialism expanded globally from the Caribbean to Asia. The end of his period of time started with World War I. U.S. forces came later into the battlefield on the side of the Allied forces. WWI saw new military weapons, chemical warfare, and a more globalized world society. Domestically, the suppression of civil liberties were commonplace, which was wrong. Americans supplies of food, military supplies, and other items were crucial in the Allied victory.  After WWI, a more internationalized world would be formed with the Treaty of Versailles and the League of Nations. Self-determination among nations plus other places expanded in places like China, Turkey, Poland, the Soviet Union, etc. American culture boomed and the continued fight for equality and justice (led by African Americans and other human begins of diverse backgrounds like Native Americans, Mexican Americans, Native Americans, women, the poor, immigrants, etc.) existed.

Reconstruction

Reconstruction changed the world forever. It dealt with debates about governmental power. Also, it gave black Americans freedom that didn’t exist before the Civil War. Some historians and scholars believe that Reconstruction started as early as 1863 when the Emancipation Proclamation was issued which freed slaves in the Confederacy. The end of the Civil War saw Southern cities like Charleston and Richmond completely demolished. The South’s total wealth declined. Southern factories, plantations, and railroads were gone. The South experienced desolations as a response to the Union’s efforts to end the Confederacy. The Confederacy is to be blamed for promoting oppression.  People talked about what to do with eleven states that rebelled against the Union. Reconstruction dealt with rebuilding the South, promoting the lives of newly black freed human beings, and the future of society. African Americans continued to fight for full citizenship and equal rights after the war. Three million African Americans in the South saw a new era and they mostly lived in rural communities. That is why tons of black people were farmers back then and many black Americans came into the cities of the South for economic opportunities. While some people like General William Tecumseh Sherman wanted millions of acres of lands to be given to former slaves by the federal slaves (like forty acres and a mule doctrine of Sherman), many southern landowners opposed this idea. African Americans from the South, during the Reconstruction period and beyond, fought fight for voting rights, access to education, and other benefits that most northern black people (and all black people in general) were fighting for too. Southern white racists would fight legitimate progress at every step of the way since they wanted their status and power in society along with racists being wicked.

As early as 1864, people increasingly knew that the Union was going to win the Civil War. So, people before 1865 talked about what do with newly freed black people once the war was over. There were three views back then. One view was the progressives who wanted land sent to black Americans and full equality. Abraham Lincoln and Andrew Johnson were the moderates who wanted an immediate reconciliation of the Confederacy to the Union after the war was over. Both Lincoln and Johnson wanted a national healing and immediate admission of rebel states into the Union. Abraham Lincoln promoted the ten percent plan. This was the Proclamation of Amnesty and Reconstruction. It wanted ten percent of a state’s voters took a loyalty oath to the Union, and then the state would set up a new government. If the state’s constitution abolished slavery and provided education for African American, then that state would regain representation in Congress. In my personal, opinion, Lincoln was too generous and too accommodating to former Confederates. For example, Lincoln wanted to give pardons (not prison time) for Confederates. He considered compensating them for lost property. He recognized the pro-Union governments of Arkansas, Louisiana, and Tennessee even though they denied African Americans the right to vote immediately after the Civil War.

Then, you have the disgusting reactionaries who rejected political and social equality for black people. The progressives included black leaders and Radical Republicans who stood out to defend the Union and they wanted punishment (including making former Confederate states to have the stipulation of swearing allegiance to the Union) sent to the rebels for their actions of extremism during the Civil War too. One leader of the Radical Republicans was Thaddeus Stevens and Charles Sumer. They opposed Lincoln’s 10 percent plan since Confederates committed the crimes of enslaving black Americans and advancing the Civil War. Lincoln’s plan was rejected and replaced with the Wade-Davis bill in 1864. This policy required the state’s prewar voters to swear loyalty to the Union before the process of restoration started. It promoted guarantees of equality to African Americans. Lincoln ended this plan by a pocket veto or withholding his signature beyond the 10 day decline with the end of the congressional session. Lincoln was wrong to do this.

On March 3, 1865, the Freedmen’s Bureau was established. This was supported by Lincoln. It was formed to give assistance to newly emancipated African Americans. It had huge successes and large economic burdens including racist terrorism harming many schools of the Freedmen’s Bureau. It ended by 1872. The Freedmen’s Bureau wanted to give newly freed black persons food, clothing, health care, and education including for white poor folks of the South. It also helped to reunite black families who were split apart as a result of slavery. It was used to aid 4 million newly freed black human beings. It spent about $5 million to set up schools for former slaves. Howard University, Hampton University, and Fisk University were founded and financed with the help from the Freedmen’s Bureau too. After April 15, 1865, Andrew Johnson was President. Johnson would go on to be one of the racist Presidents in American history. Also, he refused to support even middle of road Reconstruction measures in a vindictive way. The Union General Benjamin Butler in 1865 was elected to Congress as a Radical Republican.

After Lincoln’s assassination in April 1865, Andrew Johnson became the next President. Like Lincoln, Johnson wanted to restore Southern states to the Union as quickly as possible. His plan was to allow any Confederate in the Union if they swore alleigance to the Union and the Constitution. He also anted each state to ratify the Thirteenth Amendment and draft a Constitution that abolished slavery. He wanted wealthy planters to write to him personally in order to get a pardon as he detested wealthy planters. Like many southerners, he was a stone cold racist who wanted America to be a “government for white men.” Andrew Johnson didn’t want to give black Americans the right to vote. He believed in states’ rights in allowing the states to deprive black people human freedoms. In December of 1865, most Confederate state had met Johnson’s plan for readmission when Congress reconvened. By December 6, 1865, the 13th Amendment was ratified.

The 13th Amendment abolished slavery in the United States of America. In the same year, Southern states increase the existence of Black Codes. Black Codes are Jim Crow laws that restrict the rights of African Americans involving voting, owning businesses, owning a gun, holding office, etc. Southern states started to allow even Confederates in Congress. The black odes forced African Americans to work in a few jobs like servants or farm laborers. Many states banned black people from owning land as owning land is a key prerequisite in real economic plus political power. Vagrancy laws existed that made any black person who didn’t have a job could be arrested and made to work as prison labor (which involved kidnapping and de facto slavery). During this time when with Union military occupation of the South, many white southerners openly used violence and intimidation to enforce the black codes. This was so evil that Radical Republicans and moderate Republican fought part against the South’s disrespect of the essence of Reconstruction. When southern representative came into Washington, D.C. Congress refused their seats. Congress used a committee to investigate the treatment of former slaves. The spring of 1866 saw more events. Radical Republicans wanted to defend the rights of black people while Johnson opposed this plan. Congress passed a bill to fund the Freedmen’s Bureau. It was given authority to punish state officials who failed to extend rights to African Americans. Johnson vetoed this bill.

April 9, 1866 was the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1866. This gave citizenship to African Americans and guarantees equal rights. It created federal guarantees of civil rights and tried to stop states trying to do evil. Johnson vetoed the law and defied Congress. Later, Congress overturned the veto to make the Civil Rights Act of 1866 the law of the land. The Memphis race riot from May 1-3, 1866 was when white racists and the police killed 46 Africans and destroyed 90 homes, schools, and four churches in Memphis, Tennessee. By July 30, 1866, the New Orleans race riot had the police to murder more than 40 black Americans and white Republicans. More than 150 people were wounded. 1866 was the year when the Ku Klux Klan was formed. It was a secret organization that wanted to use murder, violence, and rape to terrorize African Americans and establish white rule n the South. It was founded in Pulaski, Tennessee. Radical and moderate Republicans blamed Johnson’s total lenient policies of compromise for the violence against black people in the South. Radical Reconstruction started when more Radical Republicans gained power in Congress.

The 1867 Reconstruction act divided the former Confederacy states (of 10 of them) into five military districts via the Military Reconstruction Act of 1867. Congress had overridden President Johnson’s veto again. The generals (who were Union generals from the Civil War) ruled those districts until the states had an oath of allegiance to the Union (and allow African Americans suffrage). These districts wanted African American men to vote as women wouldn’t be allowed to vote until the 1900’s. In 1867, the Republican convention in New Orleans has a party platform including promoting equality for African Americans.

In 1867, tension with Johnson and the Congress increased. Congress passed the Tenure Office Act to control the President’s power. It said that the President must have Senate approval before getting rid of some members of his office. Later, he tried to get rid of the last Radical Republican in his cabinet who was Secretary of War Edwin Stanton. He barricaded himself in his office for nearly 2 month. Then, the House of Representative voted to impeach Johnson for trying to fire Stanton. Johnson was so stubborn that he had an impeachment trial by the Spring of 1868. From March to May of 1868, by one vote, the U.S. Senate failed to remove President Johnson from office. The moderates didn’t want Johnson to leave office. Andrew Johnson promised to enforce the Reconstruction Acts. The Fourteenth Amendment was ratified in July 21, 1868. This Amendment guaranteed due process and equal protection under the law to African Americans. The 14th Amendment wanted to punish any state the refused to allow black people the right to vote with losing House seats. It banned leading Confederate officials from holding federal or state offices. On November 3, 1868, President Ulysses S. Grant was elected President. He was the 18th President and a former Union general. He beat Democratic candidate Horatio Seymour of New York State and he had a majority of the white vote. Congress passed the Fifteenth Amendment in 1869. It forbade any state from denying suffrage on the grounds of race, color, or previous condition of servitude. Many southern racists used loopholes to deprive black people of voting rights by using literacy or property qualifications.

This harmed African Americans and the poor. The Enforcement Act of 1870 made intimidation of people having voting rights a federal crime. The first redeemer government was in Tennessee. This was in 1869 when TN replaced a biracial Republican state government with an all-white Democratic government. This was followed by Georgia, North Carolina, and Virginia in 1870. 1870 was the year when all of the former Confederate states had met the requirements under Radical Reconstruction and rejoined the Union. The Republicans dominated state governments. More African Americans used their political power to be part of government at every level. More black people were now school superintendents, sheriffs, mayor, coroners, and legislatures in the South. The Republican Party also had members who were Scalawags or poor white people who agreed with Reconstruction. Carpetbaggers came from the North and they wanted economic profit in the South via businesses. Many of them were accused of financial exploitation of people. By February 23, 1870 was when the first black senator was elected. His name was Hiram Revels of Mississippi and he was in the U.S. Senate as the first black senator.

The Fifteenth Amendment was ratified on March 30, 1870. It extended the vote to all male citizens regardless of race or previous condition of servitude. In 1871, the 43nd Congress had five black members in the House of Representatives: Benjamin S. Turner of Alabama; Josiah T. Walls of Florida; and Robert Brown Elliot, Joseph H. Rainey and Robert Carlos DeLarge of South Carolina. The first African American governor was P. B. S. Pinchback, acting governor of Louisiana from December 9, 1872 to January 13, 1873. Pinchback, a black politician, was the first black to serve as a state governor, although due to white resistance, his tenure is extremely short. In 1874, for the first time since before the Civil War, Democrats control both houses of Congress. Robert Smalls, black hero of the Civil War, elected to Congress as representative of South Carolina. Blanche K. Bruce elected to U. S. Senate. Blanche was born in Virginia as a slave. She learned to read. She left the plantation and went into Missouri during the Civil War. He ran a school for black children and came into Oberlin College in Ohio. He was a great landowner at age 25 by 1866. By his mid-thirties in 1874, he was elected to the United States Senate. Ironically, no black Congressman was elected in the North until the twentieth century. Some Republicans were wrong to not want women’s suffrage immediately since they felt that they couldn’t get enough support to get voting rights for women. Black people and women gained new opportunities during Reconstruction from working in medicine, schools, etc. Many women were leaders in orphanages and relief programs.

Schools grew in the schools. Most were segregated. A few of the Radical Republicans wanted integration. Land speculation, illiteracy, and poverty were fought against by progressive people in the South. African Americans saw a new world with Reconstruction. Most black people in the South were farmers and wanted land to cultivate their own lives and families. Many organized economic institutions and civil rights groups to fight for their rights. The reason is that freedom must be established by both using economic and political power merged into one. In other words, we have to fight for just laws and get our economic power increased in order to fight poverty plus set up our own institutions to benefit the black community as a whole. Black people worked as cooks, carpenters, blacksmiths, and other workers in southern cities. Many experienced low pay, poor food, and substandard housing. African Americans churches were places where black people worshiped, established job opportunities, organized political movements, and helped to educate black people. In rural communities, sharecropping existed. There were share tenancy and tenant farming. Sharecropping was when a landowner dictated the crop and provided the sharecropper with a place to live. In return, a share of the harvested was given to the sharecropper. The problem was that brought supplies on credit with high interest and the sharecropper were forced to pay for these expensive items. Sharecroppers would in term be in debt.

These leaders during Reconstruction (from left to right) were Robert Brown Elliot, Robert Carlos DeLarge, and Octavius Catto.

Many landlords would lie about the costs of supplies and economic exploit sharecroppers who were both black people and poor whites. Tenant farming involved renting and money management problems existed too involving tenant farming. Sharecropping extended poverty in the black community. White racism and black scapegoating contributed to the violent backlash against Reconstruction. Republicans took over the governments of the South for a time. White racist southerners formed the Ku Klux Klan as a means to stop Reconstruction. The Klan burned homes, schools, and churches. They came out in night and killed, raped, and hanged African Americans and white progressives. Anyone (a minister, a teacher, politicians, etc.), who encouraged black people to vote, were readily assaulted and murdered by the Klan. The violence against black people was very large. The Congress acted by passing the Enforcement Acts in 1870 and in 1871. It made it federal offense to interfere with a citizen’s right to vote. Congress had hearing and invited black politicians and other people to talk about South. George Ruby of Texas told Congress that he dragged into the woods and beat him because he opened a school in Louisiana. Racism terrorism was in the North too. In Philadelphia, civil rights leader Octavius Otto was murdered by a racist mob. He was a teacher and Isaiah Wears and other black protested the racism found in the North as well. Hundreds of Klansmen were indicted in America via the Enforcement Acts. After 1872, violence against black people declined temporarily. With an ex-Confederate general Wade Hampton being elected in South Carolina, the white racist backlash grew. Ulysses S. Grant did many progressive things. His administration fought southern resistance to Reconstruction. His administration later had financial scandals. Grant defeated Horace Greeley in the 1872 election. Later, greed and economic corruption saw the start of the Gilded Age. The Panic of 1873 involved a recession with failed banks and overextended loans to the railroad industry. Job losses came about. 

On March 1, 1875, the Civil Rights Act of 1875 was enacted by Congress. It guaranteed equal rights to African Americans in public accommodations and jury service. It was ruled unconstitutional in 1883. In 1876, Republicans challenged the validity of the voting in South Carolina, Florida, and Louisiana. Wade Hampton was inaugurated the governor of South Carolina, which shown that Southern reactionary extremists didn’t want Reconstruction but oppression. In 1877, Rutherford B. Hayes was inaugurated as President. The Electoral Commission awarded disputed electoral votes to the republican candidate. In 1877, Reconstruction officially ends with the disgraceful Great Compromise of 1877. This allowed Rutherford Hayes to withdrawal federal troops from the South as a means for him to be President.  Reconstruction didn’t end because of one reason. They included: the Northern support evaporated (because of reforming politics and economic matters which is no excuse since you can handle all issues at the same time), Radical Republicans either passed away or retired, Southern racists gained power in Congress, racist terrorists harmed black people and black people lacked adequate protections, and the Supreme Court promoted decisions that attacked equality. The Supreme Court in the Slaughterhouse Cases of 1873 restricted the 14th Amendment in allowing states to regulate the scope of the Amendment.

States in the South soon deprived black people rights further. The 1876 decision of United States v. Cruikshank overturned the conviction of the racist Cruikshank and wanted states to handle 14th Amendment affairs (while saying that the 14th Amendment didn’t apply to individuals). Redeemers or Southern whites who hated Reconstruction took control of legislatures throughout the South. In 1874, Republicans lost control of the House of Representatives. Reconstruction has been debated to this day. The truth is that Reconstruction was a heroic, progressive experiment. Its end should be blamed on bigots. Its goals were noble and it caused an increase of the education of African Americans, the expansion of the industrial economy, and the growth of a tax supported educational system. After 1876, bitterness between North and South continued and 100 years after Reconstruction, the second Reconstruction of the Civil Rights Movement would finally end Jim Crow apartheid once and for all. Reconstruction expanded rights and opportunities for African Americans. Also, the Reconstruction period inspired women to fight for suffrage. Women should have the right to vote ASAP just like black Americans and suffrage activists continued in their cause. Reconstruction expanded the role of the federal government and the Republican Party became known as the party of Lincoln. The Democratic Party included both reactionary southerners and industrial Northerners. The Radical Republicans ended after Reconstruction, but new activists would develop to defend the human rights of black people and humanity in general. Reconstruction truly changed the world forevermore.

The West

One of the most important parts of American history deals with the Old West. For thousands of years, Native Americans were living in the Americas. After 1787, the Construction regulated trade among the federal government and the Native Americans. The history is clear that the federal government not only broke treaties with the indigenous peoples, but outraged kidnapped them and placed them into reservations. From the 1840’s to the 1880’s, more settlers desired more lands even on Native American’s lands. After the Civil War, only 200,000 Native Americans lived to the west of the Mississippi River. Native Americans lived in different cultures and lived in diverse areas. Plains tribes like the Sioux, Blackfeet, Crows, Comanches, and Cheyenne relied on the buffalo for survival literally. Native Americans viewed the land as sacred and it wasn’t to be owned for profit while many Europeans wanted to own the land for economic reasons. Clashes occurred among settlers and Native Americans. By the 1860’s, more laws forced Native Americans to live in reservations. Those areas heavily had poverty, dilapidated lands, and other problems. This was after the 1834 law that limited trade with Native Americans and limited white settlers in Indian Territory. Many white settlers brought diseases that harmed the Native American populations and hunters by the 1870’s almost made the buffalo extinct. Some people murdered buffalos for sport. Transpiration and technology rapidly expanded into the West. With that came more conflict among Native American lifestyles and the growing American nation. Horace Greeley of the New York Tribune encouraged people to travel into the West. In 1862, Sioux Native Americans fought settlers in eastern Minnesota over territories. The Sioux rebellion escalated in 1864 when Colorado militia murdered unarmed Cheyenne and Arapaho civilians. The Native Americans raised the American flag to promote peace, but the militia murdered men, women, and even children. This was the Sand Creek massacre. War grew. John Covington was the commanding officer of the incident.

During this time, the West was transformed by railroads, ranches, and mining. Mining communities desired gold, silver, and other resources. Some authorities hired vigilantes to enforce the law in mining towns. Some mining towns existed temporarily. Chinese Americans and others helped to create the Transcontinental Railroads that expanded the developments of cities and towns. Vaqueros and ranchers owned livestock. Cowboys helped to allow cattle to travel for months into various markets. Cowboys were white, Mexican, and African American men. To this day, cowboys perform nationwide and they include women too. The West was complex with discrimination and economic growth. It had Asians, black people, Mexicans, white people, Native Americans, etc. Homesteads expanded land. Exodusters included African American who wanted to escape the South in order to have self-sufficient, autonomous communities in places like Kansas and Oklahoma. By 1890, the Western frontier era ended. The new era of the West would be filled with challenges and fights for equality among Americans.

After the Civil War, both white and black Union soldiers joined forces to subdue the Native Americans. This was imperialism and it was wrong. Recruitment efforts existed to gain more U.S. soldiers for the job. The Plains Native Americans tried to hold onto to their territories, but the federal government wouldn’t let up. In 1866, Red Cloud and his allied lured Captain William Fetterman and his troops. They killed them. Some people wanted education for Native Americans while others wanted strict rule over them. The racist United States Indian Peace Commission wanted Native Americans to submit to white civilization in order for peace to come. The Fort Laramie Treaty of 1868 dealt with Sioux lands. Promises were broken with treaties and conflict continued. The Red River War existed in the late 1800’s as far as Texas. Comanche surrendered by 1875.

The Battle of the Little Big Horn was about lands. Crazy Horse and Sitting Bull wanted to drive out prospectors in their lands. By June 1876, General George Custer was defeated by Crazy Horse with his 2,000 Native Americans. Custer and his men died. Sitting Bull escaped into Canada. Crazy Horse and his followers surrendered by starvation and bad weather. Many of the Nez Perces came into reservations, Also, Chief Joseph tried to go into Canada, but he surrendered. He came into Washington, D.C. to defend the interests of his Native American people. The Ghost Dance revival inspired a new resistance movement against U.S. imperialism. In 1890, the government wanted to arrest Sitting Bull. There was the massacre in Wounded Knee, South Dakota where over 100 men, women, and children Native Americans were murdered by U.S. forces.  Assimilation came and many Native Americans were stripped of their rights and culture. Some reformers opposed the brutal treatment of Native Americans like the author Helen Hunt Jackson. Congress passed the Dawes Act in 1887. It dealt with land allotment to Native Americans and other issues. Native Americans would continue to fight for their freedom after the 1890’s too.

Industrialization and the Guided Age

The growth of industry after the U.S. Civil War transformed the total landscape of American society. This period also involved new inventions and the Gilded Age including the growth of unions (which were created to defend the rights of workers). The Industrial Revolution started in the late 1700’s. It grew in America by the 1800’s with railroads and other devices. Coal and iron was used as resources. By the 1850’s, a new era came about in America. This new era involved steel, oil, and the new power source of electricity. This was the time when goods were created for quicker and efficiently. Immigration grew in causing more labor resources to construct railroads, goods, and other services in America. The natural resources of wood from trees, oil, etc. were utilized in many machines. 1 million immigrants per year came into America by 1905. Horatio Alger wrote his novel that mentioned the story of a poor boy who worse to wealth and fame by working hard. This promoted capitalism and entrepreneurs. Capitalism believes that the free market enterprise should dictate the functions of the economy. Entrepreneurs invested in money in a product in order for them to make profit. They worked in favor of industrialization. The factories, the mines, and the railroads grew jobs and had foreign investment too. The government encourages the free enterprise system. The government gave millions of acres of lands to railroad builders, so they could link East and West. Congress passed protective tariffs or taxes that would make imported goods cost more than goods that were made locally. Back then, little regulation of businesses occurred, which was laissez faire capitalism.

The government promoted patents to protect inventors and their inventions. In 18976, Thomas Edison worked with wealthy industrialists like j. P. Morgan to promote a research laboratory at Menlo Park, New Jersey. Edison crated a patient for the electric light bulb by 1880. IN 2 years, he installed a street lighting system in New York City.  The telegraph was invented in 1844 by Samuel Morse. The telegraph sent communications among thousands of miles in America. In 1876, Alexander graham Bell invented the telephone and in 1896, Guglielmo Marconi created the wireless telegraph which influenced the development of radio. The sewing machine was created by Elias Howe in 1846. The safety elevator was formed by Elisha Otis. In 1884, the improved steam boiler furnace was created by African American Granville Woods. This helped to power trains. Steel would grow being lightweight, but powerful. Such steel was used in skyscrapers and suspension bridges. The Brooklyn Bridge is a suspension bridge being the first of its kind spanning the East River in New York City. It was completed in 1883. It was the largest bridge in the world back then. Modern time zones would form by the 18 80’s and growth would develop mass production. World markets would be linked more closely with the explosion of modern inventions. More Americans moved into the cities from rural farms. America became a more powerful global political, economic power. Industrial waste increased including dust storms and agricultural problems too, so the environmental movement inspired the creation of the National Park Service and Yellowstone Park in 1872.

Image result for robber baronsImage result for robber barons

With the growth of business, corporations would dominate railroad systems, resources, and other goods plus services. One robber baron was Andrew Carnegie. Corporations were owned by a group of shareholders. Investors would have a dedication to fund the growth of corporations too. Corporations would be dictated by public shareholders, under them would be the Board of Directors, under them were the managers, and the managers control the employees. J. P. Morgan and Cornelius Vanderbilt had massive power. Some corporations dominated a product or service which would be a monopoly. John D. Rockefeller would make deals with railroads in growing his oil profits. Horizontal integration and vertical integration were tactics used by corporations in controlling profits and products. Trusts were used by John D. Rockefeller in order to escape state law preventing companies from owning stock of another company. The paradox is that many robber barons like Carnegie, Rockefeller, and Vanderbilt used cut throat tactics in their economic policies while investing in universities, museums, and libraries at the same time (which they felt would give the disadvantaged the chance to attain wealth). Social Darwinism is related to Charles Darwin’s Origin of the Species book. Social Darwinism means that wealth was one measure of one inherit value and those most fit are entitled to that wealth. Social Darwinism is evil since it promotes classism and it is overtly bigoted against the poor. With these monopolies growing, the government took action. The U.S. Senate created the ICC or the interstate Commerce Commission to oversee railroad operation. The Sherman Antitrust Act in 1890 was passed by the Senate to regulate trusts. It would be rarely enforced until the Progressive Age years later.



With this massive era of the Gilded Age, the workers fought back for economic justice heroically.  Business owners and workers struggles in the midst of conflicts and disagreements on how to move forward. Workers experienced heavy hardships during the Gilded Age. Many workers faced long hours, bad conditions, injuries, and even death from working accidents. Men, women, and children worked in factories. Families struggled to get child care or education for children. Later, states passed laws to ban child labor. Company towns were about business renting areas where workers would live. Corruption inspired the growth of labor union. Labor union fought for workers’ rights like collective bargaining. This was about benefits helping workers. They came after a strike. The National Trades Union was the first national labor union being founded in 1834. Many groups wanted higher wages and the 10 hour work day. Socialism grew too. Socialism believed in public control of property and income. German philosophers Karl Marx and Freiderich Engels promoted the ideas of socialism with their book entitled, The Communist Manifesto. It predicted that capitalism would end when workers would rise up to overturn it. Most Americans rejected Communism, but socialism was popular in many smaller circles back then and today.

Image result for Knights of LaborImage result for Haymarket Square strike

The Knights of Labor was created by Uriah Smith Stephen to defend labor rights. They even recruited African Americans. Stephens wanted a workers’ cooperative to replace capitalism. By 1885, the Knights of Labor had women and people of every race or ethnicity. It disappeared largely by the 1890’s. Samuel Gompers created the American Federation or the AFL in 1886. The AFL wanted union to protect crafts making workers. They wanted higher wages, great working conditions, and low working hours. The AFL excluded women since they falsely believed that women depressed wages. Many AFL excluded black workers when they had no explicit policy banning black people form joining. Strikes occurred in 1877 involving railroad workers. The Haymarket Square strike in 1886 in Chicago wanted an eight hour work day. Many people left the Knights of Labor afterwards. The Homestead Strike wanted higher wages and the Pullman strikes wanted a better cost of living and higher wages. Eugene V. Debs was a leader in that strike. Debs was arrested for being involved in the strike. Debs would be a socialist and help for form the IWW or the Industrial Workers of the World. The Gilded Age ironically helped to spread socialism and labor rights activists worldwide, because the corruption of robber barons were so overt that radical change would be necessary for justice to exist for workers. The Gilded Age saw more skyscrapers, more mass transit like cable cars being electric, trolley cars, and the first subway system in Boston by 1897. New York City had its subway system by 1904.

New Social Realities

America is based on diverse peoples representing their cultures. During the era after the Civil War, massive urbanization (or the rapid growth of cities) developed along with industrialization (or the growth of factories and railroads). There was an expansion of farming as well. This was facilitated by increased high levels of immigration. From 1865 to 1918, there was a historic, unprecedented plus diverse amount of immigrants who came into the United States of America. They came into America in the number of 27.5 million people. 89% of these immigrants or 24.4 million people came from Europe, 2.9 million from Britain, 2.2 million from Ireland, 2.1 million from Scandinavia, 3.8 million from Germany, 4.1 million from Italy, 7.8 million from Russia and other parts of eastern and central Europe. Another 1.7 million came from Canada. Many came from Africa and the Caribbean too. Most of these human beings came through the port of New York City, and from 1892, through the immigration station on Ellis Island. Many ethnic groups settled in different locations. New York City and other large cities of the East Coast became home to large Jewish, Irish, and Italian populations. Many Germans and Central Europeans moved into the Midwest. Some of them had jobs in industry and mining. At the same time, about one million French Canadians migrated from Quebec into New England. Immigrants came into America because of poverty, religious threats. They saw America as the “Promised Land” of milk and honey. Many wanted jobs, farmland, and had kin connections to those in America too. Many of them worked at factories, mines, and construction sites. Some found farming opportunities in the Plains states. Many immigrants were welcomed (other European immigrants weren't for a time) while Asian people experienced massive racism and discrimination. Many Chinese Americans constructed railroads in the West Coast, but were treated in a dismissive fashion unlike Western European immigrants. After massively racist, intense anti-Chinese agitation in the West, Congress passed the evil Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882. It was signed into law by President Chester A. Arthur. It suspended Chinese immigration for 10 years and then it was renewed in 1892 and made banning Chinese immigration permanent in 1902. It was the first evil American law to prevent a specific ethnic group from immigrating into America. It was repealed by the Magnuson Act of December 17, 1943. Yet, even that law allowed for the continuation of the ban against ownership of property and businesses by the ethnic Chinese.  In many states, Chinese Americans (including US citizens) were denied property-ownership rights either by law or de facto until the Magnuson Act itself was fully repealed in 1965. Some immigrants stayed temporarily in the U.S. then returned home, often with savings that made them relatively prosperous. Most, however, permanently left their native lands and stayed in hope of finding a better life in the New World. This desire for freedom and prosperity led to the famous term, the American Dream.

In terms of the religion, the Third Great Awakening existed from the late 1850’s to the early 1900’s. It saw the growth of evangelical Protestantism from the late 1850’s to the early 1900’s. During this time, this movement promoted social activism and affected pietistic Protestant denominations. Many followers of this Awakening believed in the postmillennial theology that the Second Coming of Jesus Christ would come after humankind had reformed the whole earth. A major component was the Social Gospel Movement, which applied Christianity to social issues and gained its force from the Awakening, as did the worldwide missionary movement. New groupings emerged, such as the Holiness movement and Nazarene movements, and Christian Science. At the same time, the Catholic Church grew rapidly, with a base in the German, Irish, Polish, and Italian immigrant communities, and a leadership drawn from the Irish. The Catholics were largely working class and concentrated in the industrial cities and mining towns, where they built churches, parochial schools, and charitable institutions, as well as colleges. The Jewish community grew rapidly, especially from the new arrivals from Eastern Europe who settled chiefly in New York City. They avoided the Reform synagogues of the older German Jewish people and instead formed Orthodox and Conservative synagogues.

Race relations between 1877 and 1918 were horrible. Black Americans during this time lost many of their civil rights obtained via Reconstruction. Many African Americans suffered racial discrimination, racist lynching, violence, and anti-black racial riots. This led to many problems in the living conditions of many African Americans. The South expanded Jim Crow laws. These laws didn’t just deal with restricting voting (literacy tests, poll taxes, and grandfather clauses were used to deprive black people in the South to vote). Grandfather clauses didn’t want people to vote if their grandfathers didn’t vote before 1866. Since, many black people in the South were slaves before 1866, many black people weren’t allowed to vote. It meant separate, unequal restaurants, trains, pools, cemeteries, schools, and other facets of society. Many white people formed all white primaries to only allow whites to have a voice in elections. In 1896, Homer Plessy, an African American, was denied of his rights via the Supreme Court’s Plessy v. Ferguson decision. That decision upheld racial segregation via its sick “separate but equal” doctrine. The case came after Homer Plessy sat in a white section of a Louisiana train car. By the end of World War II, only 3 percent of African Americans had the right to vote. Black people in Louisiana went from 130,000 people voting in 1894 to only 1,300 people voting in 1904. Black Americans fought back too. Frederick Douglass lived during racial oppression, but told his allies to continue to agitate and fight for freedom by the late 1800’s. Black Americans created civil rights groups, women’s clubs, fraternal organizations, schools, colleges, and political organizations in fighting for our human rights back then. Many black people had diverse views on how to achieve equality (like Booker T. Washington and W.E.B. DuBois), but they agreed with the same goal (which is equality and justice for black people). Booker T. Washington was born a slave and became free. His legacy was part of educational opportunities for those of black African descent. He was right to advance education and vocational work for African Americans. He was right to promote land ownership. He was wrong to advance the principle that true equal rights must be based on previous preparation for it. Freedom is not based on a clock, but should be given immediate irrespectively of anything. He was also wrong to believe in a capitalist extremism and to promote the Atlanta Compromise since justice is not compromise, but liberation. You don’t compromise with your oppressor, but you defeat your oppression. Later in his life, Booker T. Washington would support efforts to end Jim Crow.

W.E. B. DuBois believed that political agitation and embracing a liberal arts education would cause equality for black people. DuBois is right that no accommodating of southern white racists is needed and he was right that black people should demand for immediate equality via political agitation. DuBois was wrong to advance the Talented Tenth principle or a select of bourgeois black people being made leaders of the black community. Leadership is egalitarian not possessed on a very few amount of people. We can all be leaders. DuBois is right to promote many progressive positions on housing, the economy, and on being anti-imperialist. Ida B. Wells also opposed lynching and racism. She was raised in Holly Springs, Mississippi. She knew both Frederick Douglass and WEB DuBois. She was one founde

Tu enfermera sólo sabía hablar italiano,
pero luego de veinte minutos pude imaginarme la semana final
y las lágrimas corrieron por mis mejillas...

Cuando me emabarqué en Italia con el cuerpo de mi madre
toda la costa del Golfo de Génova
estallaba en una vehemente flor.
Los locos amarillos y azulados trineos acuáticos
barrenando como martinetes
es la estela burbujeante spumante de nuestro barco,
recordaban los estrepitosos colores de mi Ford.
Mi madre viajaba en primera clase en la bodega:
su ataúd Risorgimento, negro y oro,
era como el de Napoleón en los Inválidos...

Mientras los pasajeros se tostaban
en el Mediterráneo, en las sillas de cubierta,
nuestro cementerio familiar en Dunbarton
se extendía debajo de las Montañas Blancas
con un tiempo bajo cero.
El suelo del cementerio se estaba convirtiendo en piedra,
tantas de sus muertes habían ocurrido en pleno invierno.
Sombríos y hoscos entre las cegadoras vestiscas,
su negro arroyo y los troncos de los abetos estaban lisos
   como mástiles.
Una cerca de medias lanzas de hierro
bordeaba de negro sus lápidas de pizarra, casi todas
   coloniales.

La única alma "antihistórica" que vino a parar allí
era mi padre, ahora enterrado debajo de su reciente
lonja de mármol de vetas negras sin desgastar.
Aun el latín de su divisa de Lowell:
Occasionem cognosce,
parecía demasiado práctico y agresivo allí,
donde el quemante frío iluminaba
las inscripciones labradas de los parientes de mi madre;
veinte o treinta Winslows y Starks.
La escarcha les había otorgado a sus nombres un borde de
   diamante...

En el grandilocuente rótulo sobre el féretro de mi madre,
Lowell había sido escrito erróneamente LOVEL.
El cadáver
estaba envuelto como un panetone en papel de estaño italiano.

Sailing Home from Rapallo

[February 1954]

Your nurse could only speak Italian,
but after twenty minutes I could imagine your final week,   
and tears ran down my cheeks....

When I embarked from Italy with my Mother’s body,   
the whole shoreline of the Golfo di Genova 
was breaking into fiery flower.
The crazy yellow and azure sea-sleds   
blasting like jack-hammers across
the spumante-bubbling wake of our liner,   
recalled the clashing colors of my Ford.   
Mother traveled first-class in the hold;   
her Risorgimento black and gold casket   
was like Napoleon’s at the Invalides....

While the passengers were tanning   
on the Mediterranean in deck-chairs,   
our family cemetery in Dunbarton   
lay under the White Mountains
in the sub-zero weather.
The graveyard’s soil was changing to stone—
so many of its deaths had been midwinter.   
Dour and dark against the blinding snowdrifts,
its black brook and fir trunks were as smooth as masts.
A fence of iron spear-hafts
black-bordered its mostly Colonial grave-slates.   
The only “unhistoric” soul to come here   
was Father, now buried beneath his recent   
unweathered pink-veined slice of marble.   
Even the Latin of his Lowell motto:   
Occasionem cognosce
seemed too businesslike and pushing here,   
where the burning cold illuminated
the hewn inscriptions of Mother’s relatives:   
twenty or thirty Winslows and Starks.
Frost had given their names a diamond edge....

In the grandiloquent lettering on Mother’s coffin,   
Lowell had been misspelled LOVEL.
The corpse
was wrapped like panettone in Italian tinfoil.

First MoviePass, and now Crocs? Nothing is sacred.

In a press release, Crocs Inc. announced that it will be closing all of its remaining  manufacturing facilities. Additionally, its executive vice president and chief financial officer, Carrie Teffner, will leave on April 1, 2019.

The company has already started wrapping things up in one of its facilities in Mexico, and they plan on shutting down the remaining in Italy. At the moment, there are no plans to create a new site for production. Though the company said they "aren't going anywhere," they did not explain where and how its shoes would be manufactured.

          Il "governo degli intoccabili" ha rimosso il terremoto      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Non si può muovere una critica, non si può rilevare una mancanza che si viene subito attaccati sul piano personale. Il governo degli "intoccabili", si direbbe. Eppure è tutto così chiaro, così evidente. Negli ultimi giorni e mesi Salvini, Di Maio, i loro ministri e i loro parlamentari più noti hanno parlato di tutto, ma davvero di tutto. Di tutto tranne che del terremoto. In Parlamento è passato il relativo decreto, c'era la possibilità di riempirlo di contenuti, non lo hanno voluto fare. Niente risorse né volontà politica; perfetta continuità con la colpevole inerzia che ha caratterizzato i governi del Pd. E sono già passati due anni...

Trentasettemila italiani che sopravvivono da sfollati senza la benché minima prospettiva di futuro, centinaia di borghi e piccoli comuni a rischio spopolamento: se non è un'emergenza nazionale questa, ci si chiede cosa mai possa esserlo davvero. E invece niente, silenzio. Silenzio e qualche proroga. A cosa è servito, allora, tutto quel tambureggiare sulla parola "stato"? Che senso ha avuto tutto quell'annunciare che da ora in poi sarebbero venuti "prima gli italiani"? Se c'è una questione che tocca nel nel vivo la carne degli italiani e che evoca nella tragedia la figura paterna e sicura dello Stato è proprio questa. Ma non è questa, evidentemente, la bandiera che la propaganda gialloverde ha deciso di innestare in questa fase. I terremotati posso attendere.

L'ho scritto sui giornali locali, l'ho detto nell'aula del Senato, dove, assieme ai colleghi di Forza Italia, ci siamo visti respingere emendamenti essenziali: la proroga dei contratti a termine dei funzionari in appoggio alle amministrazioni locali per smaltire le pratiche, la semplificazione degli oneri burocratici, il sostegno al reddito di lavoratori e imprenditori colpiti dal sisma, la distinzione delle procedure tra piccoli e grandi interventi, la sospensione degli effetti della legge Severino per quei sindaci che si sono assunti delle responsabilità nella ricostruzione al posto di uno Stato e regioni latitanti... Tutti, inesorabilmente, respinti. E poiché ancora si ricordano le (giuste) polemiche di Lega e grillini col Pd e le (vane) promesse elettorali dei loro leader e candidati ai terremotati di Marche, Lazio, Umbria e Abruzzo, non mi è sembrato strumentale invocare le dimissioni da senatore di quei sindaci del cratere candidati e di conseguenza eletti in quanti simboli di una tragedia rimossa.

Avessi detto il falso, mi sarebbe stato replicato con fatti concreti. Articoli di legge approvati, emendamenti recepiti, decreti calibrati. I grillini hanno invece emblematicamente fatto finta di nulla preferendo tacere, mentre la replica leghista è stata sul piano personale. In sintesi, e usando una parola che pure dovrebbero aborrire, l'hanno messa così: il cinico sarei io, perché ho propalato delle "fake news" per ottenere visibilità. Nessun fatto, nessuna cifra, nessuna circostanza. Solo il goffo tentativo di una delegittimazione personale esercitato dai servi muti di un governo degli intoccabili che invece delle macerie ha rimosso il terremoto.


          La favola di Yeman Crippa, bronzo nei 10mila. Il padre: "Adottato in Italia con 7 fratelli, tutti salvati dalla guerra"      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Ha ottenuto il bronzo nei 10mila agli Europei di atletica a Berlino. Yemaneberhan Crippa, o Yeman Crippa, 22 anni, nato in Etiopia, è stato adottato in Italia da genitori speciali insieme a sette fratelli e cugini rimasti orfani. A Quotidiano.net, il padre Roberto ha espresso il suo orgoglio per il traguardo raggiunto dal figlio e ha raccontato la scelta sua e della ex moglie di adottare otto bambini, salvandoli dalla guerra. I piccoli sono stati riuniti tutti tra il 2003 e il 2008: "Come li ho cresciuti? Puntando sulla qualità del cibo e riciclando gli abiti", ha spiegato Crippa.

I ragazzi, ormai diventati grandi, vivono ognuno per conto proprio: hanno trovato la propria strada o la stanno cercando. In ogni caso hanno abbandonato il nido familiare, di comune accordo con i genitori, e pagano l'affitto o il mutuo. "Il mio orgoglio per loro è immenso. E il loro orgoglio per quello che stanno realizzando è ancora più grande", ha raccontato il padre. È proprio lui a ricapitolare i loro lavori:

"Mekdes, femmina, ha 19 anni, fa la commessa e abita a Trento; Mulu, femmina, 20 anni, è cameriera e anche lei abita in provincia di Trento; Gadissa, 21 anni, maschio, fa il cameriere stagionale in provincia di Trento; Yeman, 21 anni – quasi 22 – è poliziotto nelle Fiamme Oro e con la medaglia al collo adesso se lo coccolano tutti; Asna, 23 anni, femmina, è parrucchiera a Milano; Neka, 24 anni, maschio, fa il cameriere a Trieste ed è l'altro atleta di casa: nel 2013 ha vinto il Mondiale juniores di corsa in montagna, poi si è infortunato e ora sta cercando di risalire con due sessioni di allenamento quotidiane; Elsabet, 27 anni, femmina, è rientrata in Etiopia e lavora nella cooperazioone; Kelemu, 28 anni, maschio, fa l'operaio a Tione, in provincia di Trento".

Di certo, vivere con otto figli non è una scelta facile. Ma Roberto non si è mai pentito della sua decisione. La quale non sembra essergli pesata più di tanto.

"Un buon stipendio aiuta, ma più importante è guardare alla sostanza. Si investe sulla qualità del cibo, si riciclano i vestiti e per il resto si fa economia. La motivazione è tutto. I ragazzi si responsabilizzano e i genitori ringiovaniscono. Ho 51 anni e me ne sento 31".

Il padre è soddisfatto anche dell'educazione che gli è stata data: "Sono stati educati al rispetto. E se rispetti gli altri, il rispetto ti torna indietro". Per questo, dice, non hanno subito episodi di razzismo. In ogni caso, Roberto non si sente un santo né un pazzo:

"Sono solo entusiasta. Del resto senza entusiasmo non vai in Etiopia ad adottare tre figli in orfanotrofio e poi torni indietro a prendere i fratellini che erano dagli zii, e poi i cugini".

https://youtu.be/7yTxMOSjegY Franco Battiato Cover Rolling Stones Francesco "Franco" Battiato (Italian: [ˈfraŋko batˈtjaːto]; born 23 March 1945, Ionia, Sicily)[1][citation needed] is an Italian singer-songwriter, composer, filmmaker and, under the pseudonym Süphan Barzani, also a painter.[2] Battiato's songs contain esoteric, philosophical and religious themes. He is and has been for decades one of the most popular pop singer-songwriters in Italy. His unique sound, song-crafting and especially his lyrics, often containing philosophical, religious, and culturally exotic references, as well as tackling or painting universal themes about the human condition - unusual subjects for pop songs - earned him a unique spot on Italy's music scene, and the nickname of "Il Maestro" ("The Master" or "The Teacher"). His work includes songwriting and joint production efforts with several Italian and international musicians and pop singers, including the long-lasting professional relationship with Italian singer Alice. Together with Alice, Franco Battiato represented Italy at the Eurovision Song Contest 1984 with the song "I treni di Tozeur".[3] "..Don't question why she needs to be so free Shell tell you it's the only way to be She just can't be chained To a life where nothings gained And nothings lost At such a cost There's no time to lose, I heard her say Catch your dreams before they slip away Dying all the time Lose your dreams And you will lose your mind.

ROME: Italy’s Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte said on Wednesday that it is not vital for Libya to vote this year, signalling doubts about a French-led push to hold elections in December to stabilize and unify the North African country.

Italy and France are competing for influence in war-torn Libya, an oil- and gas-rich country which has been staging area for people smugglers who have sent hundreds of thousands of people on rickety boats toward Europe in recent years.

          Comment on Do Vampires Have Moral Obligations? by Suzie      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
I don't necessarily think they have the 'moral obligation' to act as superheroes, especially since I think the idea of superheroes isn't great anyway because it's just vigilante-ism. Every person can choose how they want to serve the community and the world, even though others may think they 'should' be doing other things or 'could' be doing more. But I do wonder, in this fictional world, why these people with tons of money and long lives wouldn't be more interested in environmentalism, politics, activism, etc. Wouldn't they have the moral prerogative and self-serving desire to make the world better? And wouldn't they want to maintain their 'vegetarian' resources? There's the group in Italy (I forget the name) that kind of influences politics, but even they seem short-sighted.

The boron trifluoride market is primarily driven by the increase in demand for boron trifluoride (BF3) as a catalyst in end-use industries and expansion in the chemical industry. Chemical is one of the major industries driving the global boron trifluoride market. Apart from its use as a catalyst, BF3 is employed as a reagent for desulfurizing solvents, intermediates, and cracked petroleum distillates. It is also largely employed as a p-type dopant in the manufacture of several semiconductor products.

Currently, end-users of BF3 gas are substituting it with BF3 complexes, which are good catalysts in different chemical reactions. They can substitute BF3 gas in almost all applications. Moreover, due to the availability of BF3 complexes in liquid or solid form, it is easy to handle and transport.

          Comment on I’ve explored 34 countries on my own; here’s why I always choose to travel solo by Amanda Williams      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Reading this is so inspiring! I too have tried to convince people to join me in travels, but to my dismay no one seems to be as ready as I am. I turn thirty next year, and my goal has always been to travel to Italy (or India) for my 30th birthday. I have never been to a foreign country or traveled solo, but I think I have finally gotten the courage to give it a try. It is very overwhelming though trying to plan my first international trip as well as going at it alone. I'll be traveling within my country alone at the end of this month to test out solo travel before I make a bigger trip. I've been searching for some kind of solo traveling community to bounce ideas off of, get advice from, become friends with, etc. So, reading this article and seeing all the comments has helped. I wish you well in all your travels! Maybe our paths will cross some day. :)

          11 Travel Photography Tips When Traveling with Young Children      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Sassopiato

Let’s face it: it can be hard to pursue a hobby when you’re in the throes of raising children of a certain age (newborn to school-age). Photography is no exception. Add to that the challenges of traveling with children and travel photography starts to look like an impossible task. I’ve met so many people who told me that they gave up on photography because of these very hurdles. I picked up photography when I bought a DSLR to take better photos of my newborn and so I’ve been in the thick of it since then. I don’t even know what it’s like to take photos any other way. In this article, I would like to share some of the ways in which I’ve been able to overcome the aforementioned challenges, while sharing photos from a recent family trip to Italy.

          Italian values and norms to know prior to a trip      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Italy is known to be one of the most well-known nations to go to in the european union, if not in the entire world. Although not very big when compared to heavyweight like the United States Of America or Australia it has a lot to offer in terms of assortment. It appeals to millions of visitors with its mouth watering food, amazing architecture, unique natural attractions, and of course the vast collections of art. A visit to Italy is packed with a variety of opportunities for enjoyment, cultural admiration and gastronomic satisfaction that any first time visitor would be overwhelmed with the wide range of experiences this nation has to offer. You can keep on visiting this country your whole life and never get bored of it. But what exactly is it that moves a variety of tourists to go to and appreciate this nation every single year? To find more facts about this nation such as Italian beliefs and Italian customs make sure to keep on reading this review.

Importance of food in Italian culture is hard to depict to someone who has never sat down for a dinner with an Italian family. Italian cooks such as Massimo Battura - https://www.forbes.com/sites/leitihsu/2018/06/28/catching-up-with-massim... dominate the culinary world scene. Italian cuisine is famous, but it stretches a great deal past the dining establishment walls. Every Italian family has their own long-kept quality recipes handed down from grandma to child. These cooking instructions are straight forward, but the intense care taken to procure components of the highest quality is what makes these meals so delicious. Italians do not see foods as simply a way to get full and proceed with their day – mealtimes commonly extend into hours and it is viewed as an occasion to get up to date with friends and family.

Although Renaissance is a time in the history of Europe as a whole, it is largely associated with Italy. This time has introduced some of the best thinkers and has changed the way we do and view art to the core. New art techniques that are still used to this day were created in Renaissance era Italy. Many Italian artists including for instance Mino Argento continue this great tradition of art and culture.

Though not many may possibly immediately connect Italy with business, the country has a number of well established businesses that are rather big on the global market. Larger companies have attracted businessmen from all around the world, such as for instance Amos Genish - http://www.ilgiornale.it/news/economia/tim-ipotesi-dimissioni-de-puyfont... , an Israeli born. But the common Italian business is small and typically family led. Italian family culture is a large aspect of their life, and that is why many choose to keep the business inside the family. It is also said that Italians are oftentimes more comfortable in the way they do their business, and the meetings are a whole lot less formal than people from other European countries would be used to.

          Trump Wants Russia Back In G-7      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Updated at 7:16 p.m. ET President Trump is calling on the Group of 7 to readmit Russia to the group of leading economic powers, saying "we should have Russia at the negotiating table." Moscow was kicked out of the group, then the G-8, four years ago after it annexed Crimea. It had been invited to join the group in the 1990s after the collapse of the Soviet Union. But after Russia's intervention in Ukraine and annexation of Crimea, Western leaders sought to isolate Vladimir Putin's government. The G-7 is made up of the U.S. and allies Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy and Japan. Trump, talking to reporters as he left the White House for this weekend's G-7 summit in Charlevoix, Quebec, asked, "Why are we having a meeting without Russia being in the meeting?" He went on: "Whether you like it or not, and it may not be politically correct, we have a world to run." It's the latest in a number of friendly gestures Trump has made toward Putin, and Russia, which U.S. intelligence

Which Side Direction in FX for Short Term after Consolidation..?

Last week was consolation in FX markets. End of week The Dollar soared against most competitors and the EUR/USD was dragged below the 1.3000 level to a fresh 3-month low of 1.2956. But the pair managed to recover some ground to close at 1.3000, 0.85% down on the day. The pair is trading at 1.3045(+0.08%). The important data last week - the final releases of the February Services PMIs for Germany, France, Italy, and the broader Euro-zone; and the January Euro-zone Retail Sales report - came in higher than forecasted.

Ratings agency Fitch downgraded Italy one notch last week to BBB-plus, citing the gloomy outlook for the economy, and placed a negative ratings outlook for the country which could lead to further downgrades. The ongoing political uncertainty in Italy may also place further pressure on the euro after Italian officials suggested the country may miss an end-of-April deadline to present a stability program to European authorities due to the political stalemate.

USD/JPY

Friday was a classic news fade trade in USDJPY. The NFP release inspired a spike into 96.55, which ended up being the high of the day. Price was down over 100 pips slightly more than an hour later. Action since the Friday post NFP low is consistent with the always annoying grind higher. Recently, the pair is trading near 96.39(+0.11%).The JPY traded at almost the weakest since August 2009 against the USD as signs the American economy is gaining momentum boosted demand for the U.S currency.

The data released yesterday in Japan which showed that machinery orders plunged in January by a huge 13.1% from the previous month, highlights a challenged environment for business investment. BoJ nominee Kuroda maintained a dovish bias in his appearance before lawmakers in Japan's upper house. He hinted at the possibility of pulling forward the start date for open-ended asset purchases, currently set to begin in 2014, while also underscoring a preference for long-term bond purchases. Kuroda stated that there is no need to purchase foreign bonds, and viewed two years as an appropriate period for achieving the 2.0% inflation target. The employment report and hope ahead of the BOJ meeting on April 4th should be enough to keep USD/JPY well supported for now.

          6 places to buy comfortable, high-quality jeans for under $150      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The Insider Picks team writes about stuff we think you'll like. Business Insider has affiliate partnerships, so we get a share of the revenue from your purchase.

premium denim thumb

Whether you dress purely for function or you have a serious obsession with fashion, you likely own at least a few pairs of jeans. These versatile, comfortable pants should last many, many years — in theory. If you're not shopping the right brands, you could be left with poorly constructed jeans that don't feel good or last very long. 

Since jeans will never go out of style (at least, we hope they won't), it's a good idea to invest in premium quality pairs. If the word "premium" scares you, don't back away just yet. Nowadays, startups are getting smarter with the way they make and sell top quality jeans.

Sourcing directly from top denim mills, using sustainable and innovative production methods, and employing the design expertise of denim industry veterans, they're able to offer customers really great jeans for less than $150, and often, less than $100. 

Once you've tried the denim from these online companies, you won't be able to go back. The jeans are stylish, incredibly comfortable, and surprisingly affordable. 

Mott & Bow

Mott & Bow

Shop premium denim at Mott & Bow here

The founder of Mott & Bow grew up learning all about jean-making in his family's denim manufacturing facility in Honduras, where Mott & Bow's jeans are still manufactured today. Likening the process to fine wine-making, where source matters, the company buys its premium denim from respected mills in Turkey and Italy, then measures and treats it to maximize comfort and style. 

We've tried its women's skinny jeans and Mom jeans, as well as the men's Wooster jeans, and had glowing things to say about their comfortable, flattering fit. But Mott & Bow knows you can't always get the perfect fit right away, which is why it lets you you add a free try-on pair in the next size up or down to your order. Its jeans range in price from $96 to $128, and you'll find slim, straight, skinny, and "mom" jeans in a variety of washes. 



Everlane

Shop premium women's denim and men's denim at Everlane here

Everlane has always espoused transparency, telling you exactly where its products are made and how much it costs to make them, from materials and labor to transport. The path to its denim apparel (which attracted a 40,000-person waitlist in 2017) is no different. Its LEED-certified factory in Vietnam recycles 98% of its water and relies on alternative energy sources to make stylish jeans you can feel good about wearing. 

The startup is always dropping new styles for men and women, but if you're not sure where to start, the Slim Fit Jean is a bestseller for men, and the High-Rise Skinny Jean is a favorite among women. Our personal favorite is the Kick Crop Jean, which looked surprisingly good on every member of the team despite our height differences. Every Everlane jean style only costs $68 or $78. 



DUER

DUER/Instagram

Shop premium women's denim and men's denim at DUER here

DUER combines fashion and function, so it's no wonder the brand is a favorite among athletes, outdoor enthusiasts, and commuters. The company was founded by a denim expert who spent 25 years making jeans for Levi's, Guess, and Lee, and a performance fabric expert who spent 25 years working with technical brands. 

Its unique Performance Denim is super stretchy and light, while wicking away moisture and neutralizing odor. These features are optimized for outdoor use, which is why you can find DUER jeans at retailers like REI. The easy-to-wear styles cost $120 to $140.

  • Filippo Loreti is a Kickstarter-alumn that has set multiple world records for its crowdfunding.
  • The company makes luxury watches that would normally sell for $1,000+ and offers them at an accessible price (from $219) by operating direct-to-consumer.
  • Filippo Loreti takes design inspiration from three of Italy's iconic cities: Venice, Rome, and Milan.
  • The women on our team tested the $249 Rome collection, defined by its Piazza del Campidoglio-inspired watchface, and loved the price, elegance, versatility, and thoughtful design. 
  • We've also reviewed the brand's men's offerings.

Luxury watches often come with the sort of price tag that prohibits most of us from owning one — an inaccessibility that has, in the past, been a central part of what made something luxurious a luxury.

 Farm News

By mid-August, the windows of opportunity to make drastic changes to the farm have started to close.  The waning days of summer are no time to shift course or add another enterprise on top of those in play.  No, this is the time of maintaining, of resigning oneself to let go of the possible and nurture the actual.

The heat and drying soils make late summer plantings of fall greens and carrots a challenge.  The lack of fruit set on the fava beans forebodes a paltry harvest. The invasion of Colorado potato beetles on our late-planted potatoes suggests fewer potatoes to be dug in a few weeks.  There’s a sense of urgency to harvest the crops at hand and preserve what we’ve got.  There are resignations to embrace the abundance of beets and pickling cucumbers and stop fretting over green tomatoes not turning colors. 

The lushness of the pasture is fleeting as well. We struggle to keep the does in front of high quality pasture and browse to keep their milk production from tanking. We become obsessed with giving them opportunities to keep their heads buried and their mouths munching.  Every quarter inch on the measuring stick in the bulk tank is either small victory or back set.

There’s a gradual shift in the mindset of managing the farm and the land in mid- August.  Farming overall is a constant tug of war between thinking you can manage everything to realizing you can manage only a few things, and sometimes the farm manages you.  Although the tropical breezes still blow, the days are imperceptibly shorter, and you know that peak of abundance has crested. It’s best to embrace it; give in to the change.

Farmers’ Market Offerings –Try a “flight” of Moonglo cheese this weekend

This Saturday’s forecast for Urbana is warm and sunny. Come early to the market to get your weekly fare of locally-grown goodness and beat the crowds. The market is brimming with summer bounty-peaches, melons, sweet corn, tomatoes, eggplants, berries, and lots of delicious goat dairy products from yours truly.  Feta is still on summer vacation, but will be back in the line-up next weekend.

We have gone a bit crazy with variations on Moonglo of late, so we’re offering a special deal on a flight. Buy ALL FOUR versions of Moonglo and get 20% off the total price. Here’s the cheese line up for Saturday:

Moonglo cheese flight

  • Fresh chevre: plain, herbs de Provence, cracked pepper
  • Plain Goat Milk Yogurt: we have fresh supply of plain, whole-milk yogurt from Green Meadows Farm that we’re bringing to market. They have made a special batch for us that is just milk and live cultures (no thickeners). 
  • Little Bloom on the Prairie: This batch is modestly ripe, with a slightly gooey edge along the rind.  Flavor is buttery, milky and slightly mushroomy.
  • Angel Food: our little “mini-brie” or crottin style bloomy rind; this batch of Angel Food is aging nicely, with hints of cream and mushroom.  It could be sliced into rounds, lightly breaded and pan-fried for topping a bed of fresh greens.
  • Black Goat: an ash-coated bloomy with a delicate and crinkly yeasty rind. This batch is ripe, and it has a wonderful firm yet gooey consistency, a slight goat tang and a hint of yeastiness on the rind. 
  • Moonglo:  Our first spring milk batches of this raw milk tomme (sort of like a gouda, but not really) are making their debut at the market and in the farm store. The spring milk produces a lighter, tangy paste with hints of pineapple. The texture of the cheese is a bit more firm than fall milk batches.
  • Applewood Smoked Moonglo: our friends at Urbana’s Black Dog Smoke and Ale House cold-smoked our Moonglo cheese over Applewood chips; the result is a lovely smoky version of our Moonglo. Like our regular Moonglo, it makes a killer grilled cheese (that’s what Black Dog is doing with it at their Urbana location).
  • Chipotle Chile Rub Moonglo: fall-milk Moonglo wedges with top & bottom rinds removed and chipotle chile powder-olive oil rubbed onto the exterior of the cheese; slightly spicy, nice smoky finish. 
  • Malted Moonglo: how about a little beer in your cheese? We made an experimental wheel of Moonglo with beer added to the curds before they were pressed into the molds. The cheese has a slightly sweet, malty character.  We think it’s delicious.
  • Pelota Roja: our special (and very limited) Manchego-style goat cheese with guajillo chile rub on the rind. We have a few wedges of this cheese for retail as most it goes to the Frontera Grill-Topolobampa restaurants in Chicago.  Perfect grating-style cheeses, with nutty notes and gentle heat from the chile rub. 
  • Huckleberry Blue: our limited late fall goats’ milk blue cheese—it’s a gateway to blue cheeses; creamy texture, not overly blue-veined (or sharp in a blue way). This cheese is great crumbled on a salad, sliced and warmed on a steak or burger OR served on baguette with a fig jam or walnut balsamic vinegar reduction (this is an amazing combination).

Gelato:

We’ve been making lots of gelato and fruit-based sorbettos with all the great local ingredients we have available at this time. We also made a very special (and limited) batch of Pistachio gelato (pure Sicilian pistachio paste). This is a premium flavor @ $12/pint. I encourage you to bring a cooler with ice packs to the market to keep your gelato in tip top shape as you travel from the market to your home. Remember: $10/pint or 3 for $27 (except for pistachio).

  • Vanilla
  • Chocolate
  • Salted Caramel Swirl
  • Buttered Pecan (made with Voss Orchard Pecans, Carlyle IL)
  • Blueberry-Chevre (made with blueberries from Pitcher-Patch Farm in Makanda IL)
  • Sicilian Pistachio Gelato
  • Fresh Mint
  • Peaches & Cream (made with our very own peaches from the PFFC orchard)
  • Nectarine Sorbetto (with nectarines from Mileur Orchard)
  • Peach Sorbetto (with peaches from PFFC orchard)
  • Apricot Sorbetto (made with Apricots from Klug Farm in MI)
  • Sweet Corn Gelato (made with Babb Farms’ sweet corn)

If you don’t know already: we have a new spot at the farmers’ market--Urbana Market at the Square. We are in spot #20 on the south-west (along Illinois Street) end of the market. We are right next to Moore Family Farm.

Farm Store Summer Hours

Now through the end of August, we are open Wednesdays-Fridays, 3-7 pm, as well as Saturdays and Sundays, 1-4 pm. The farm is beautiful this time of year—lush with plant and animal life alike. Come out after work to unwind.

During our open hours, you can savor a scoop of gelato or “build your own” cheese boards—pick out your cheeses, add a stick of salami (Underground Meats) or a jar of jam from Autumn Berry Inspired or pickled veggies, grab some Lucky Pierre bagel chips or Central IL Bake-house baguette bread and we’ll provide the board. You can sit outside under our new pavilion roof and enjoy a glass of wine or beer with cheese! Want to go the total sweet route? How about a root-beer float with a scoop of our gelato?

Need to de-stress? Come visit with the goats. They love to be petted, even in the warm weather.  Shop in our farm store: “The Real Stand.” We’ve got pasture-raised meats and poultry from Bane Family Meats, frozen artisan sausages from Piemonte Sausage Co., pickled veggies and pesto by Sarah (our former gelato maker), locally-grown and milled flours by The Mill at Janie’s Farm and much more. Back in the store this week:  goat milk yogurt by Green Meadows Farm and end of summer sweet corn from Babb Farm. 

U-PICK: U-picking is suspended until further notice.  We hope to have enough apples and maybe pears for u pick later in August. Peaches were just not that plentiful this year.

Farm Dinners: Fall season is not far away, and the September and October farm dinners are filling up fast.  I encourage you to book your tickets now. We have two versions of our 100 Yard Dinner this year: a progressive meal around the farm in mid-September and “Ploughman’s Feast” style meal in October; menus forthcoming.  We will be adding a couple of other special dinners this fall too (a beer dinner with Half Acre Brewery on October 6th for sure).

Upcoming Farm Events

Thursday, August 23rd, 5-7 pm “Wine tasting with Michael” Michael Darin, our resident wine guy, will be pouring some easy-drinking summer reds from our wine portfolio.  These reds are light and nuanced and pair well with our bloomy rind cheeses.  Some of the wines to be featured include: Lovegrass Shiraz (Australia), Argiolas Costera (Sardinia), Tarapaca Gran Reserva Organica (Chilean blended red) and Valle Real Montepuciano de Abruzzo (Italy). Michael is always informative and entertaining.  A good time will be had by all. Make a night of it and order a build-your-own cheese board while you’re here too. Please RSVP to our Facebook event so we know how many folks to expect:   https://www.facebook.com/events/235013683815265/

Back by Popular Demand (by ME!): Night of the Living Farm Tuesday, August 28th 7:30 or 8:00 pm start time (will depend on sunset) Join entomologists Dr. Michael Jeffords, Susan Post, and Dr. Joe Spencer from the Illinois Natural History Survey, for a unique exploration of the insects and other creatures that call Prairie Fruits Farm home. As the skies darken, Michael will give a short program on creatures of the night, followed by black-lighting to attract insects from the surrounding landscape. Insects from mayflies to moths are likely to make an appearance. As soon as the sky is sufficiently dark, we will explore the surrounding forest and prairie with miniature spotlights to see and experience Arthropod activity seldom witnessed. Everything from giant wolf spiders to munching caterpillars to charming tree frogs will likely appear in our flashing beams. We will charge a nominal fee of $10/person (includes a scoop of gelato).  We now have a registration page for this event on our website:   http://www.prairiefruits.com/store/special-events

CU Symphony Orchestra to perform special “environmental” pieces on our farm on Sunday September 23rd, 2-4 pm.

Visit Prairie Fruits Farm & Creamery for a free gelato social and concert from 2:00 to 4:00 pm on Sunday, September 23 to celebrate Mother Earth's summer harvest! This tribute to our planet will feature musicians from the Champaign-Urbana Symphony Orchestra performing several earth-themed chamber works by CUSO Composer-in-Residence Stacy Garrop. PFFC owners Wes Jarrell and Leslie Cooperband will bring us the latest news about their sustainability efforts on the farm. Take a tour of the farm, visit the goats, and participate in our "Messages to Gaia" community art project--where you can draw pictures, write poetry or simply share your thoughts about our planet. Come enjoy! This event is sponsored by CUSO, New Music USA, and Prairie Fruit Farms & Creamery.

Horizontal stripes have been used to draw the eye and sign-post the audacious for centuries - from Medieval miniatures to the films of Tim Burton. Whether used on a lighthouse or a zebra crossing, stripes grab our attention and in the very same moment tell us to stay away. In nature they're often the mark of something that's out to confuse, or that's about to sting you. They're what Dennis menaces in, what Henry's horrid in, what burglars burgle in, and convicts get paraded in. They're what Picasso paints in, and the Ramones rage in. They're the uniform of the outcast, the maverick, the carnivalesque.... The horizontal stripe brands those who've not toed the line, from medieval prostitutes to twentieth-century jailbirds. In fashion they defy trends, age, class and gender. Unparalleled artist, Pablo Picasso, was perhaps the most famous wearer of the Breton top but how did the striped top become part of the uniform of cool? And now that psychologists at the University of York have established that hoops are visually slimming, can we all dare to wear? It's not all about being edgy; in the medieval church architecture of Northern Italy and the structurally striped and cantilevered stonework of American architect Frank Lloyd Wright, we swap audacious for look-at me auspicious. And artists have always been fascinated by the stripe, from Bridget Riley, to Agnes Martin; its apparent simplicity is, in fact, freighted with meaning. A research team in the Netherlands discovered that viewing stripe patterns produces gamma oscillations in the brain which - in extreme circumstances - can cause seizures for those with photo-sensitive epilepsy and cause headaches, even for non-sufferers. Why do horizontal stripes command so much attention? Is it perhaps something to do with the horizon, the ultimate horizontal line?

          Cool Italian Potato Salad For Hot Summer Days      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Let's not talk about the weather. Let's just make this no-heat-up-the-kitchen cool Italian potato salad that is a signature dish from Messina, Sicily and usually served with a braciole stuffed with herbs and lots of cheese and garlic. For this salad, take advantage of your microwave to cook the potatoes.

Messina Style Potato Salad with Oregano

Serves 4 to 6

4 medium Yukon Gold potatoes

2 T. chopped black olives

8 cherry tomatoes, cut into quarters

1 clove garlic, minced

Extra virgin olive oil

Salt and black pepper to taste

2 T.  fresh oregano leaves, torn into bits

Wash and dry the potatoes and poke them in several places with a small knife. Microwave them according to the baked potato setting just until a knife can easily be inserted. Cool and peel. Cut the potatoes into 1/4-inch thick rounds and layer them in a rectangular serving dish. Sprinkle the olives and tomatoes over the slices

In a small bowl, whisk the garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper together. Pour the dressing over the potato salad and scatter the oregano leaves over the top. Cover and marinate at room temperature for several hours before serving.

          Italy’s budget: How far will the government test the markets/EU? – Nomura      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The budget bill that Italy must submit to its parliament by 27 September – and to the European Commission by 15 October – has been a cause of much concern in the financial markets over the last few weeks, according to analysts at Nomura.

Key Quotes

“A loose fiscal policy is currently being discussed in the corridors of government and may further increase Italian debt and boost the country’s fiscal deficit substantially. This ultimately may cause friction between Italy’s 5SM/League government and the European Union which is what seems to be worrying markets the most.”

“Despite the government being vague thus far on the details of September’s budget bill, recent statements from Finance Minister Giovanni Tria and the two party leaders Luigi di Maio (5SM) and Matteo Salvini (League) suggest the government will press ahead with a number of high-cost fiscal measures in 2019.”

“It is difficult to estimate the actual cost of these fiscal measures. The range of economist estimates has been large, perhaps unsurprisingly because the government has provided few indications about the cost and structure of three of its key proposals for: a) a flat tax, b) citizens’ income and c) pension reform.”

“Moreover, on top of these expensive planned fiscal measures there are a number of other unavoidable costs that the government must face in its 2019 budget. These include mandatory financial expenditure, increased interest costs and a reversal of plans to privatise some state-owned companies.”

“In what follows we stress the headline and structural fiscal deficits relative to April’s Document of Economy and Finance (DeF) to examine how significant the effect will be on the nation’s finances.”

“We conclude that the 2019 deficit may rise from an initially estimated 0.8% earlier this year to around 2.5% in next month’s budget update. Further increases are likely in subsequent years as the government’s fiscal plan continues to be rolled out.”

"Since beginning in 1982, Calugi e Giannelli has invented and reinvented clothing—menswear in particular—as if it were conceptual art... As playful as the Milanese Franco Moschino and as avant-gardist at the Parisian Jean-Paul Gaultier, Calugi e Giannelli's erudite conceptualism is accompanied by an equally strong sense of sensuality." - Taken from the Encyclopedia of Fashion. Unfortunately Calugi e Giannielli were too ahead of their time and so their business shut down due to financial difficulties - especially due to their focus being on menswear who weren't ready for their edgy, fashion forward designs.

          At bargain prices, European banks attract value-hungry investors      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Europe's most shunned stock market sector, banking, is starting to tempt some investors as a string of solid earnings updates persuade them there are cut-price deals to be had. Eurozone banks are the worst performing stocks so far this year, down 13 percent as investors shed assets seen as most vulnerable to political upheaval. At the same time, a boost for the sector in the form of an interest rate hike by the European Central Bank (ECB) still seems far away. Yet banks have generally delivered strong second-quarter results, and their low valuations and growing dividend payouts are attracting investors despite the political uncertainty over, for example, Italy's new government and US trade policy. Banking shares have still not recovered from the financial crisis: the eurozone bank stocks index is down 75 per cent from its 2007 peak, while the broader eurozone stocks index is just 10 per cent away. So there is still a long way to go. But that is precisely what is attracting value investors keen to find a bargain before the rest of the market catches on. "We have been adding to European banks particularly as we've seen US banks get closer to fair value whereas there's a big...

3568
I've begun painting the PaintWorks piece Taste of Italy. And there is a ton of detail here and with the glorious opportunities thereunto and the advanced techniques I have a chance to employ, I get a 'tyranny of choice' situation. It's impossible to choose where to start.

When I begin with color, though, I know where it's going to start (thanks to a suggestion from Library Gordon), but first, I took he simplest choice. Just do the black areas.

As earlier pointed out, the black areas are picket out by regions of darkest tone. On the diagram chart, they are starkly black; on the panel, with its screened-back printing, it's a very very dark gray. Still easily identifiable; it's the single darkest tone.

Just cover it with black.

I started in the dark areas in the fruit stall.


This took somewhere between 30 and 60 minutes of work, for two reasons: I was getting the feel of a new brush (Richeson's Gray Matters #2 round, which has immediately become indispensable) and the desire to make it a sort of meditation. PBN is great for this.

After two days of work, I nearly have the entirety of the simply-black spaces covered. After blacking-in the RISTORANTE IL VESUVIO lettering, that'll cover it.


This detail shot gives you the idea of what the black areas on the panel looked like before coverage, and after.


After the sign is painted, on to the first applications of color.

          Apple Pay Gains Momentum With Estimated 250 Million Users, 200% Transaction Growth Predicted Next Year      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
An estimated 31 percent of iPhone users have made a purchase with Apple Pay in the past year, up from 25 percent a year ago, according to a new Apple Pay estimates shared today by Loup Ventures analyst Gene Munster.

Apple Pay now has an estimated 252 million users, equating to 31 percent of the active installed iPhone base, according to Munster.


Apple does not provide official details on how many people use Apple Pay, but in a recent earnings call, Apple CEO Tim Cook said that there were upwards of 1 billion Apple Pay transactions in Q3 2018, triple the amount from a year ago.

Based on these figures combined with past Apple reports of yearly Apple Pay growth, Munster expects transaction growth of 200 percent over the course of the next 12 months.


Bank adoption of Apple Pay is also growing steadily, and during the same earnings call, Apple announced that 4,900 banks support the feature. The number of banks supporting Apple Pay has increased by 1,701 since the December quarter, marking a 55 percent growth in North America, 141 percent in Asia, and 370 percent in Europe.

Munster believes that just 20 percent of global smartphone users use their phone as a wallet, a number that he expects to rise to 80 percent in the future.

Apple is well-poised to position the iPhone as the premium digital wallet on the market given that it's the only digital wallet option "with all five payment pillars" defined as mobile, desktop, in-app, peer to peer, and point of sale.

Munster says Apple Pay is much more popular overseas, with 85 percent of users being international compared to 15 percent in the United States. Apple Pay is estimated to have 38 million users in the U.S. and 215 million in the 20+ other countries where Apple Pay is available.


Apple Pay works in retail locations with the Apple Watch and iPhone, and in apps and on the web with iPhone, iPad, and Mac. As of iOS 11.3, Apple also supports Apple Pay Cash payments, a feature that is currently limited to the United States.

Apple Pay is available in the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, Singapore, Switzerland, Hong Kong, France, Russia, China, Japan, New Zealand, Spain, Taiwan, Ireland, Italy, Denmark, Finland, Sweden, UAE, Brazil, Ukraine, Norway, and Poland at the current time, and it is also set to expand to Germany later this year.

          Strong price advances have now began to       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

 

Coffee is one of the world's major commodity crops and a major export of some countries.

This is the fibre that grows around the seeds of the cotton plant, and which results in a spun textile which is soft and highly breathable. In Europe the sizing is slightly different. The major exporters of organic fresh citrus in Europe are Italy, Spain and Greece, and elsewhere, Argentina, the US, Brazil, Israel, Costa Rica, Mexico, and Cuba are major exporters. From it comes chocolate, and it can be powdered into cocoa powder. It is possible to hold harvested beet until processed, but frost damaged beet cannot usually be processed.

The main factors affecting the orange crop are the prevalence of freezing nights, so production has to be in tilting pad thrust bearing tropical or warm temperate areas. Beet sugar tends to grow in regions with cooler climates, such as Northwest and Eastern Europe, Northern Japan, and some areas of the US.

Strong price advances have now began to influence farmers plantings decisions and encourage an even greater expansion in the area sown to cotton in these countries.

Demand for the cocoa market is generally steady, but supply is often affected by political considerations given the many unstable areas from where it is extracted, especially West Africa.

The main supply determinants are climatic.

In the northern hemisphere, the beet growing season ends with the start of harvesting around September, and harvesting and processing usually continues until March. Finished lumber is supplied in standard sizes, mostly for the construction industry, and is primarily one of a few needle-bearing species such as pine, hemlock, fir or spruce.

Friday A powerful area of low pressure sweeps across northern Europe early today, bringing damaging gale force winds to North Sea coasts of the Low Countries, northern Germany and Denmark. Strong winds will sweep into southern Sweden and the Baltic through the day. Heavy rain with embedded thunderstorms will move north across Scandinavia. A cold front passes east into central-eastern Europe, triggering thundery downpours and squally winds for Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovakia. Further thunderstorms are also likely for the Alps. A few showers will affect northern France and the Low Countries during the day, but much of France and Germany will be dry with sunshine, and fresher than recently at 23 to 26C. Plenty of sunshine across the Mediterranean, and also eastern Europe. Temperatures around 35C for the Balkans and Hungary, also hot for Italy and Greece. Dry for most of Spain and Portugal, not as hot as recently, but still up to 34 to 38C in the south-west. Local thunderstorms for the eastern Costas and Balearics.

Saturday High pressure and fairly fresh conditions influences France, the Low Countries and Germany. Unsettled for Scandinavia, with low pressure across the far north bringing wind and rain to northern Norway and Sweden. Showery for southern Scandinavia, but largely dry in Finland. Clusters of thunderstorms affect Poland, western Ukraine and Slovkia. Areas toward the Black Sea remain hot and dry, with fair weather also across Greece and the Aegean Sea, temperatures topping 30C. A few showers for the Austrian Alps, but drier further west into Switzerland. One or two zones of thunderstorms for south-east Spain, also southern Italy, otherwise the Mediterranean stays hot and dry. Temperatures nudging back toward 40C in Portugal and the south-west of Spain.

The aim of this book is to offer the reader a critical edition of the petitions in their original Italian language that (Catholic) Jews residing in Italy submitted to the Fascist General Administration for Demography and Race (Demorazza) in order either to be “discriminated,” i.e., not subjected to various provisions of Mussolini’s racial laws of 1938, or “Aryanized,” i.e., be considered not of “the Jewish race,” as defined by the convoluted and inconsistent Fascist anti-Semitic legislation. Anyone born of parents who both were of “the Jewish race,” even though professing a religion other than Judaism, was deemed to be Jewish. Consequently, the racial laws affected not only those Italians who considered themselves Jewish, whether secular or religious, but also a significant number of Catholics whose ancestors had been Jewish, as the majority of the cases contained in this volume show.

Italy's FTSEMIB spiked for reasons unknown earlier this year, peaking at an incomprehensible 23,890. It now stands at 21,354, and as it's a bank-heavy index that 10.6% drop is still what I'd call getting off lightly. This happened despite Italian banks aggressively pitching their stocks to depositors while they were quietly sinking. I was personally pitched Intesa stocks when they stood at €2.8 because "they are not going to stay there for long". On that count the salesman was absolutely right. Maybe they can get Ellon Musk's cash-laden mystery investors to take these banks private instead of Tesla: why overpay for a car manufacturer when you can buy your own bank at a large discount?
          The power to stop the far right      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Danny Katch, author of Why Bad Governments Happen to Good People, argues that we have to make sure the strike is mightier than the punch.

THIS IS the second summer of the Donald Trump presidency, and the second summer that fascists and their “alt-right” buddies have assembled on the East and Wests Coasts for “rallies” that are, in reality, testing grounds for their ability to impose their violence on the public square.

In the lead-up to last weekend’s hate marches in Portland, Oregon, and Berkeley, California, and this Sunday’s sickeningly named “White Civil Rights Rally” near the White House, we’ve seen two expressions of very different visions of power — one projected by the fascists and another by those who oppose them.

White supremacists around the country celebrated the image of Ethan Nordean, a member of the Proud Boys, punching out an anti-fascist protester during a clash in Portland on June 30.

Meanwhile, our side took heart when the managers of the Washington D.C. Metro were forced to abandon their absurd plan to give fascists private train cars to get them to their rally — after the largely Black transit workers union declared that it wasn’t going along with this stupidity.

A massive mobilization opposed the far right in Boston
A massive mobilization opposed the far right in Boston

The fanatical centrists of the U.S. establishment like to equate socialists and white supremacists as simply two different versions of “populism.” But these two examples of their power and ours — a punch vs. a strike (or at least a threatened one) — show just how fundamentally opposite we are.

Theirs is the politics of destruction, aiming to use mob violence to eliminate all organizing and resistance among people of color, women, LGBTQ people and workers. (Including transit workers, who were fired en masse in Italy as Mussolini vowed to make the trains run on time).

Ours is the politics of creation, aiming to finally put the majority class in the position of being the decision-makers over the work we already do.

Protests against the far right like this weekend’s in Washington, D.C., are critical because socialists need to stop those who seek to destroy us.

But the struggle to defend our streets and communities from fascists — and the understanding that police and elected officials can’t and won’t do it for us — is also a crucial part of our larger project of developing the capacity of our class to fight for a more fundamentally democratic society.


OF COURSE, the far right currently has another source of power far greater than street violence: the office of the president of the United States.

The horror in Charlottesville, which took place one year ago this weekend, confirmed everyone’s worst fears about the Trump presidency.

There were the hundreds of goons marching with swastikas, Confederate flags and, for some reason, tiki torches, beating and harassing protesters and passersby as police yawned nearby. This culminated in James Fields’ vehicular terror attack that killed Heather Heyer and injured many others, including Socialist Worker contributor Bill Burke.

And there was Trump’s response, which began with a boast about the soaring stock market before moving the infamous sentence: “We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence, on many sides.

Trump’s reaction to Charlottesville threw his presidency into turmoil and probably permanently ruined his chances of ever winning support from the majority of voters. But he muddled through in the absence of protest movements and organizations strong enough to create a crisis that forced him out by some means. So in addition to the turmoil, Charlottesville now stands as the beginning of the White House shift further to the right.

DACA was repealed (though it survives thanks to legal challenges). Trade wars were started. Immigrant children were stolen from their parents. “Globalist” members of the team were out, right-wing nationalist advisers were elevated. Alt-right whisperer Steve Bannon was fired for some quotes in Fire and Fury, but he might have more power than ever as a shadow adviser and informal ambassador to European far right parties.

Trump rallies have veered further into Nuremberg territory, with ever-more explicit threats to the media as the “enemy of the people” and attendees using them as meet-ups for creepy online conspiracy cults.

Some of the most ominous developments are in Portland, where Patriot Prayer marches mix Trump MAGA hats and Nazi salutes with fire and brimstone rhetoric about a great cleansing of the far right’s opponents.

Groups like Patriot Prayer and the Proud Boys are seeking out street violence because it’s the time-honored way that fascists have built their ranks.

That became apparent when Nordean became a far-right celebrity for his punch, being named “Proud Boy of the Week” and getting interviewed by Alex Jones, who said about leftists: “You try to speak to them as humans, they disregard that and use it as weakness. But they do listen to your fist smashing into their face.”


THE GROWTH of white supremacists, from the Oval Office to the streets of Portland, is sobering and frightening, but it’s important to recognize that their key weakness remains: They are widely despised.

The far right worships a president who pushes tax breaks for billionaires while gutting health care for everyone else. They have nothing to offer working people besides hatred of other working people and conspiracy theories about the politically correct Marxists who secretly run the world.

Actually, their guy has the most powerful office in the world, and the way he’s running it — still complaining about hidden conspiracies, too afraid to speak outside the safe spaces of Fox News and his own rallies — exemplifies their ultimate impotency.

Unlike many parts of the world, where far-right parties have gained mass support in reaction to the failures and betrayals of left parties, in this country, we’ve had four decades of right-wing austerity — including the terms of Bill Clinton and Barack Obama — and people are hungry for the politics of solidarity and economic justice.

There is a widespread desire to oppose the far-right agenda in this country. More people have protested in the past year and a half than any time in U.S. history. Socialist groups like the Democratic Socialists of America are exploding in size.

But it’s up to us to stop them. For all of the justified outrage over Trump’s statement after Charlottesville last year, most of media and political establishment took a similar view — that both fascists and those who come out to oppose them are problematic extremists, taking the law into their own hands, instead of letting the system do its job.

But it’s the system — the system of Electoral College, voter suppression and two parties that both report to Wall Street and have no answer for the deteriorating conditions a majority of people face — which put Donald Trump in power. And it’s the system, in the form of police who repeatedly side with Nazis over protesters and wanted to give them a private train escort — that bears the blame for the right’s rise.


SO WE’RE right to take the fight against the far right into our own hands. But we can only do it with numbers.

The protests against the fascists in Portland, Berkeley and Washington, D.C., have been important, but in truth, they should be far larger after the horrors of Charlottesville last summer.

Some of reason might be that activists are focused on the many other horrors of the Trump era. But it’s also likely connected to the growing attention on the midterm elections as the best way to get rid of Trump — by winning a Democratic majority in one or both houses of Congress that can both block his agenda and pursue investigations that could bring him down.

But even if this works, that doesn’t mean that diminishing Trump’s power within Washington or even getting rid of him will diminish or get rid of the far right. In fact, the examples of France and Italy show that the experience of center-left governments betraying people’s hopes can actually help the far right grow even stronger.

Not only that, but we’ve seen in Portland and Berkeley that liberal city administrations won’t do anything to stop the obvious bias shown among the ranks of their police forces against those who protest white supremacy.

We know what works against the far right, because we saw it last year in the weeks after Charlottesville: Mass protests that demoralize the far right by proving that they are pathetic pariahs who can’t risk showing up in public. The eruption of protest proved to everybody that this society wasn’t going to allow the right to succeed in its project of restoring Nazis and the KKK to a place of acceptability.

When we build those mass protests and use our own superior numbers — a form of democracy more responsive than the rigged system that gave us Trump vs. Clinton — we are also contributing to the project of building real power, the same power we need to defend abortion clinics and build rapid-response networks that can stand up to ICE raids in our communities.

And then there’s the power of workers, as shown by Amalgamated Transit Union Local 689 in Washington, whose President Jackie Jeter declared: “More than 80 percent of Local 689’s membership is people of color, the very people that the Ku Klux Klan and other white nationalist groups have killed, harassed and violated. The union has declared that it will not play a role in their special accommodation.”

Our longer-term goal has to be to mobilize this power in the fight against the far right and Trump. It’s a good step that SEIU 1021 and other unions were part of the coalition that mobilized against fascists in Berkeley. The goal must be to get more workers to these protest and raise the issue of job actions against the far right, just as tech workers are starting to organize against their company’s contracts with ICE and the Border Patrol.

That’s our socialist vision of power: working shutting this system down. It packs a much harder punch than any Nazi.

          Chlorinated Isocyanurates Market to Undertake Strapping Growth During 2015–2025      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Future Market Insights has announced the addition of the “ Chlorinated Isocyanurates Market Industry Analysis and Opportunity Assessment, 2015 - 2025"report to their offering.

Valley Cottage, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/09/2018 -- Chlorinated Isocyanurates are chlorine derivatives of isocynauric acid. They are used as disinfecting, bleaching and sanitizing agents. Additionally, they can be used as fungicides, fungistats, bactericides and microbistats. They are used to a large extent as disinfectants in swimming pools and to a lesser extent in industrial water chilling systems and as domestic septic tank disinfectants. Chlorinated Isocyanurates are formed by chlorification of urea using cyanuric acid as substrate.

The growing disinfectants industry is the primary driver for the market of chlorinated Isocyanurates. It finds widespread use in swimming pool disinfection. The growing inclination of people towards swimming and the growing sports industry is a major driver for the market of chlorinated Isocyanurates market.

DichloroIsocyanurate can be used for disinfecting surfaces used for poultry and silkworm rearing, which is another major driver for the market of chlorinated Isocyanurates. Disinfectants find use in industrial water chilling units in order to purify the water before industrial use. Chlorinated Isocyanurates can be used as a preliminary purification method in the semiconductor industry which employs double distilled water. The growth of semiconductor industry in Asia Pacific is a driver for the market of chlorinated Isocyanurates. However, chlorinated Isocyanurates are eye irritants. Their use in swimming pools for disinfection should be therefore judicious. Standards and calibrations for the use of chlorinated Isocyanurates in various applications are expected to open new areas of opportunity for the market of chlorinated Isocyanurates within the forecast period.

There are three types of commercially useful chlorinated Isocyanurates, which include – trichloroisocyanuric acid (TCCA) and sodium dichloroIsocyanurate (anhydrous and dihydrate) (SDCC). TCCA has limited solubility in water and is therefore used as controlled release sanitizer for swimming pool disinfection. SDCC has higher water solubility and finds use as stain remover and bleaching agent in dishwasher detergent formulations. SDCC is also used in shock treatments for swimming pools.

Request to View Sample of Research Report @ https://www.futuremarketinsights.com/reports/sample/rep-gb-314

The U.S and Western Europe are the biggest markets for chlorinated Isocyanurates. China, Japan, Spain and Italy are the major producers of chlorinated Isocyanurates.

The use of chlorinated Isocyanurates in China and Japan for swimming pool disinfection is negligible; hence majority of chlorinated Isocyanurates produced in China and Japan is exported to the U.S. In the past, there have been antidumping duties levied by U.S on Chinese and Spanish exporters; however, the exports of chlorinated Isocyanurates from China are witnessing an increase from 2011. The use of chlorinated Isocyanurates is highly seasonal, depending on weather conditions and pool construction, owing to which the global market of chlorinated Isocyanurates is expected to grow at a gradual rate. China exports high quality chlorinated Isocyanurates to U.S and Western Europe and low quality chlorinated Isocyanurates to Africa and other developing nations for drinking water disinfection. Japan uses chlorinated Isocyanurates as sanitizer for domestic septic tanks. The Chinese market for swimming pool disinfectants is not very large hence most of chlorinated Isocyanurates produced is exported.

Request For Table Of Content @ https://www.futuremarketinsights.com/toc/rep-gb-314

There are very few manufacturers of chlorinated Isocyanurates globally with majority of them concentrated in China. The key players in this market include –3V Italia, China Salt Changzhou Chemical Co Ltd, HebeiJiheng Chemical Co Ltd, HezeHuayi Chemical Co Ltd,Liaocheng London Chemical Co Ltd, Nissan Chemical, Nippon Soda, Nankai,Nanning Chemical Industry Co Ltd, PuyangCleanway Chemical Ltd. Shandong JuanchengKangtai Chemical Co, Sino-Korea Anhui Suzhou SDF Chemical Industry Co, Shikoku and ZhuchengTaisheng Chemical Co Ltd among others.

          You Can Wear One-Piece Swimsuit As Bodysuit, Too!      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Costume intero? Siii!
Un grande ritorno che entra di diritto nelle swimwear collection più trendy dell'estate 2018.
Non esiste costume più chic del modello one-piece.
Strutturato e fasciante, da accessoriare con gioielli e accessori per un look da neo diva, perfetto per una festa in piscina o un aperitivo al tramonto.
Un passpartout da indossare anche come bodysuit, al momento dell’happy hour, basterà aggiungere un gonnellone o un paio di shorts a vita altissima e il gioco è fatto!
Il pezzo cult di stagione, un must cui nessuna fashionistas può rinunciare, meglio se semplice e sgambatissimo, anzi a dirla tutta a tinta unita ci piace ancora di più.
Bye, bye bikini... giuriamo amore eterno ai costumi interi... con buona pace delle maniache dell’abbronzatura senza segni.
Perchè-perchè-perchè:
Parliamone. Pura Poesia. 
È indubbiamente elegante.
E' per donne normali e sta bene a tutte.
Dà personalità.
Si può indossare da mattino a sera.
E' perfetto al mare e in piscina e per il dopo mare e il dopo piscina.
E poi, il costume intero anche in città? Yes, pleeease.
È sempre un super investimento, perché puoi usarlo come sottogiacca come fosse un body.
Non è mai stato così versatile. Dalle passerelle alla spiaggia, la moda di stagione lo vuole protagonista assoluto del guardaroba.
Io l'ho scelto total green e con il tocco romantico delle ruches sulle spalline, per un beach-look ultra-raffinato, sull'esclusiva spiaggia del complesso residenziale di Riva dei Tessali.
Così fasciante da sembrare quasi un body. Così performante da sembrare quasi una tuta da sub. Così glamour da sembrare... il capo intorno al quale costruire l’intero look, da giorno ma anche da sera... perchè spiaggia non significa indossare-la-prima-cosa-che-capita.

Do you have a swimsuit that you love? 
Why not wear it as a bodysuit?
The one-piece swim silhouettes taking over the market are too good to just save for the beach.
Not only are the styles super chic - just think of the convenience!
A one-piece can take you from the beach to dinner and back if you style it right.
Take your swimsuit from the pool to a dinner date by pairing it with a sleek pant or a fun denim skirt.
Don’t shy away from printed one-pieces, either, as they make for the perfect statement top.
For a sexier vibe, pair your plunging suit with a trouser or full skirt.
Very night at the Copacabana, no?
Do you have a swimsuit you’d like to try this with?
You gonna be wowed by the possible combos, as you can wear one-piece swimsuits with jeans, pencil skirts, shorts, sweatpants, leather pants, etc.
How to take your one-piece swimsuit from the beach to dry land like it ain't no thang... it’s brilliant actually.
I chose my one-piece swimsuit in emerald green and with the romantic touch of the ruffles on the shoulder straps, for an ultra-refined beach-look, on the exclusive beach of the residential complex of Riva dei Tessali.
So fascinating that it almost looks like a bodysuit. So performing to look almost like a diving suit. So glamorous as to seem... the piece around which to build the whole look, from day to night... because beach does not mean wearing
just something I threw on.
