http://jumpingjackflashhypothesis.blogspot.com/2012/02/jumping-jack-flash-hypothesis-its-gas.html




The seas, lakes and oceans are now pluming deadly hydrogen sulfide and suffocating methane. Hydrogen sulfide is a highly toxic water-soluble heavier-than-air gas and will accumulate in low-lying areas. Methane is slightly more buoyant than normal air and so will be all around, but will tend to contaminate our atmosphere from the top down. These gases are sickening and killing oxygen-using life all around the world, including human life, as our atmosphere is increasingly poisoned. Because both gases are highly flammable and because our entire civilization is built around fire and flammable fuels, this is leading to more fires and explosions. This is an extinction level event and will likely decimate both the biosphere and human population and it is debatable whether humankind can survive this event.




A. More fires and more explosions, especially along the coasts, but everywhere generally.
B. Many more animal die-offs, of all kinds, and especially oceanic species.
C. More multiples of people will be found dead in their homes, as if they'd dropped dead.
D. More corpses found in low-lying areas, all over the world.
E. More unusual vehicular accidents.
F. Improved unemployment numbers as people die off.

2018-08-07 - Unknown rotten egg odor on two days blows through Kuna (Idaho):

http://kpic.com/news/offbeat/dispatch-multiple-calls-for-bad-smell-in-kuna
http://wow1043.com/what-is-that-stench-in-kuna/

Quote: "Intermountain Gas has received more than 100 calls reporting a gas odor in and around Kuna, according to the Kuna Fire Department. The cause of the odor has not been determined yet. The Kuna Fire Department first received reports of the gas odor at 6 a.m. Monday. Intermountain Gas investigated and found there were no breaches or leaks in their system. By 1 p.m. Monday, the smell had gone away, but reports started again around 3 a.m. Tuesday and lasted until 11 a.m."

Quote: "Intermountain Gas technicians have responded to roughly 100 calls about a natural gas-like odor."

Quote: "In a statement issued Wednesday afternoon, The L & R Group said results from a third-party tester to determine if its facility is the source of the smell have been inconclusive. The company also said: 'While our facility does produce odors under certain conditions, we have never had any complaints of smell outside a two-mile radius of our facility. Based on historical information it is unlikely that the smell at our facility is traveling as much as twenty miles, as reported by some.'"

Note: So some people wanna blame a wastewater pond, but independent testing has been unable to verify that, and the company who owns the pond thinks that it's unlikely any odor from their pond could travel 20 miles. So, back to rotten egg odor from unknown source...

2018-08-07 - Warming Earth causing plants, trees and soil to absorb less methane:
http://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2018-08/asrc-wsi080118.php

http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2018/08/180806152021.htm
http://www.earth.com/news/climate-change-forests-methane/

Quote: "Trees, plants and soil play a vital role in absorbing and preventing many of the greenhouse gases responsible for global warming from entering the earth's atmosphere. But a new paper from researchers at the Advanced Science Research Center (ASRC) at The Graduate Center of The City University of New York finds that the existing effects of global warming are decreasing the soil's ability to absorb methane gas--one of the major drivers of global temperature increases--and creating a positive feedback loop between the effects of global warming and the variables that cause it."

Note: And there's yet another self-reinforcing feedback. As the world warms, the plants, trees and soil absorb less methane, so more methane accumulates in the atmosphere, which causes more warming, which causes less methane to be absorbed AND causes more methane to be released, which causes more methane to accumulate in the atmosphere, etc, etc. This is only one of the degrading methane sinks. Another big methane sink involves hydroxyl radicals in the atmosphere, and the amount of hydroxyl radicals in the atmosphere is also in decline...

Note: Methane is a lighter-than-air gas, so it tends to accumulate in the upper atmosphere, and it's highly flammable. One has to expect that to have some effect on planes...

Quote: "A plane made an emergency landing at New York's Kennedy Airport after reports of smoke in the cockpit. Officials say United Airlines Flight 4697 from Washington to Providence, Rhode Island was diverted about 2 p.m. Tuesday. About 50 people were evacuated from the twin-engine Embraer ERJ-145 regional jet and bused to a terminal."

Note: This is the 132nd aircraft to smoke/burn/explode in 2018. In all of 2017, 116 planes came down smoking or burning or exploded, so we're already well past that count, with nearly five months to go in the year. The number of planes coming down smoking or burning is rising, even as the amount of flammable methane in the atmosphere is rising...

Quote: "The largest wildfire in California's recorded history expanded to almost 300,000 acres on Tuesday, postponing the start of the school year as ash choked the air and thousands of people remained driven from their homes. The Mendocino Complex, encompassing two fires lapping the northern and western shores of Clear Lake about 80 miles northwest of Sacramento, added 17,000 acres overnight to reach 290,000 acres, authorities said."

Quote: "The blaze, dubbed the Mendocino Complex, was reported 20 percent contained on Tuesday. Its rapid growth at the same time firefighters were battling more than a dozen other major blazes around the state fanned fears that 2018 could become the worst wildfire season in California history."

FEW Britons have heard of Anguilla. Yet the tiny Caribbean island, home to around 14,000 people, is proud to be a British overseas territory. In the 1960s its islanders successfully staged a bloodless rebellion to stop Britain granting them independence as part of St Kitts & Nevis, around 60 miles to the south. Today they style themselves as the only place to have “fought Britain to remain British” and loudly trumpet their links to London. But like other far-flung relics of empire, Anguillans often complain that they are overlooked. Since the Brexit vote their grumblings have grown louder.

The islanders say they rely heavily on the European Union and on nearby islands owned by France and the Netherlands. Anguilla’s airport does not have a runway long enough for big jets, which makes it dependent on the French and Dutch halves of neighbouring St Martin. Although tourism makes up a big chunk of Anguilla’s economy, nearly all visitors must first fly to the Dutch half of the island...


          08/09 Links Pt2: A homicidal Jew-hatred is going viral, again; Son of Imam Linked to WTC Bombing and Linda Sarsour, Ran Jihad Camp, Allegedly Trained Children to Shoot Up Schools      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
From Ian:

A homicidal Jew-hatred is going viral, again
The culture of suspicion against Jews circulates now in a country that had not participated in the Holocaust, , which did not have ghettos, but where today for a mixture of Thirdworldism, consistent Islamic electoral interests, anti-colonial madness out of maximum time and anti-Zionism practiced by the progressive elites, the English citizens of Jewish origin today no longer feel at ease.

The previous day there was the indictment of an imam of Copenhagen who in a sermon invited the faithful to kill the Jews. The day before there was the reconstruction of the history of the Imam of the Great Mosque in Toulouse, also guilty of having invited the faithful to get rid of the Jews.

Previously, there was a pan-European flotilla of solidarity to Hamas and Gaza which stopped in many Italian ports. Also a law in the Senate of Ireland which sanctions with prison those who import post-1967 Israeli goods.

And then the launch of hundreds of missiles on the Israeli houses in the south. And then the threats of elimination of the Jewish people coming from the spiritual father of Iran, Ali Khamenei.

And we do not stop here, since the last few weeks have seen nothing short of attacks on Jews in the cities of Germany and France.
Watchdog Group Sues US Government to Obtain Records of BDS Groups Under Obama Administration
A conservative watchdog group has filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the State Department, Department of Homeland Security and Department of Defense over Obama-era records pertaining to anti-Israel BDS groups.

Judicial Watch filed the FOIA lawsuit in order to obtain records from 2015 of groups affiliated with BDS movement, which lobbied “the Obama administration to adopt policies to harm companies doing business with Israel,” the group said in a statement.

The lawsuit occurred “after all three agencies failed to respond to nearly identical April 23, 2018, FOIA requests,” the organization explained.

“Americans deserve to know if the Obama-era agenda of supporting anti-Israel radicals in subverting US law is ongoing,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “These entrenched bureaucrats of the Deep State clearly require lawsuits to compel observance of FOIA law.”

The lawsuit states, despite Obama signing the 2015 Trade Enforcement Act, “the Customs and Border Protection Bureau restated the West Bank Country of Origin Marking Requirement rules requiring labeling of goods as being from the ‘West Bank,’ despite the fact that it is not a sovereign country,” reported Judicial Watch.

The Endowment for Middle East Truth (EMET) applauded the move by Judicial Watch.
Israeli Air Force Gets First-Ever Female Squadron Commander
The Israeli Air Force has appointed the first female squadron commander in its 70-year history.

According to Israel’s Channel Two, the commander, who for security reasons is referred to only as “G.,” will be promoted to lieutenant colonel and put charge of the 122nd Squadron, known as “Nachshon.” The squadron is composed of planes specifically geared toward intelligence gathering.

The 34-year-old G. has been active in the Air Force since 2003, and has served in several command positions, including deputy commander of the “Nachshon” Squadron itself.

G. — currently a major — said that she was “happy with the appointment,” which she called “a great privilege alongside a great responsibility.”

“The real work is ahead of me,” she added. “I’m proud to serve in the Air Force.”



Son of Imam Linked to WTC Bombing Kept Children in 'Filthy' Compound, Allegedly Trained Them to Shoot Up Schools
Horrifying details emerged on Wednesday in the case of Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, the son of an imam linked to the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, who was arrested in New Mexico on charges of keeping 11 starving children in a filthy compound. According to court documents filed by prosecutors, Wahhaj was training the children to carry out school shootings.

Prosecutors asked the judge to hold Wahhaj without bond for felony child abuse. He is also the subject of an extradition warrant from Georgia on charges of kidnapping his own son from the state in December. His son was not among the starving children rescued from the compound. There are fears the remains of an as-yet unidentified child found at the compound could be Wahhaj’s son.

Prosecutors said on Wednesday that Wahhaj and four accomplices possessed an AR-15 rifle and four pistols with ample ammunition and were training the children to commit school shootings.

Wahhaj’s father, who was born under the name Jeffrey Kearse but now also uses the name “Siraj Wahhaj,” is an imam in New York who was an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. He served as a character witness in the trial of mastermind Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman, also known as the “Blind Sheikh.”

The New York Post reported on Monday that the elder Wahhaj is currently the head of the Majid at-Taqwa mosque in Bedford-Stuyvesant. The other defendants in the compound case are the younger Siraj Wahhaj’s wife, his two sisters, and his brother-in-law.








Palestinians celebrate relative's victory in U.S. Congressional race
Sharing smiles and hugs, the extended family of Rashida Tlaib, who is set to become the first Muslim woman to join the US Congress, celebrated her election victory in the courtyard of their West Bank house on Wednesday.

The oldest of 14 children born to a family of Palestinian immigrants, Tlaib is a Detroit native. Her father worked at a Ford Motor Company plant in the city, home of the US car industry, and she became the first Muslim woman elected to the state legislature.

On Tuesday, she won her district's Democratic nomination for Michigan's 13th Congressional district, encompassing parts of Detroit and surrounding suburbs and home to one of the largest Muslim and Arab-American populations in the United States.

Since no one ran in the Republican primary, Tlaib is poised to win the seat.
Nick Cohen: The old left and the new anti-Semitism
Only the handful of Jews who have stuck with the far left believe that now. There are abundent examples of Labour members endorsing racism. The supernatural Jew of Nazi Europe has been reinvented by the left. The Jew is now ‘the Zionist’: the sinister force behind 9/11, the Iraq War, the banking crisis and attacks on the beloved leader.

This sounds like fascism. The convergence between the extremes should not hide the fact that the disgrace of the British Labour party flows from distinctly left-wing sources that threaten the German and wider European left.

The first is failure to come to terms with the crimes of communism. Corbyn was a regular writer for Britain’s communist newspaper, the Morning Star. His chief adviser, the upper-class socialist Seumas Milne, defended the old GDR. The racism on the British left, in its content and tone, dates back to Stalin’s almost forgotten ‘anti-Zionist campaigns,’ at the time of the Slansky trial and ‘doctors’ plot’. I have no doubt that if Corbyn and his allies were Germans, they would be in Die Linke.

There is a second factor. After the fall of communism, the dominant section of the British far left preferred to make common cause with radical Islam or the secular Middle Eastern dictatorships of Saddam Hussein, Muammar Gaddafi and Bashar al-Assad than to make their peace with liberal democracy. Anti-Semitic conspiracy theories did them no harm for decades. In Britain, as in Germany, Jews are a tiny minority. The far larger Muslim minority is a key part of Labour’s base now. Although it is a libel to say that all British Muslims are anti-Semitic, it is a statement of fact that the Islamist groups who back Corbyn are reactionary on all questions including Judaism. In any case, because Britain never experienced communism or fascism there is little understanding here about what anti-Semitism is and how dictatorial movements from the Tsarists to Islamic State have used it to attack liberal values.

Let me end with a warning. Labour under Corbyn has avoided the collapse in support that has afflicted social democratic parties across Europe. Corbyn’s acolytes are now telling German social democrats to follow his example. Let the shameful state of the once proudly anti-fascist Labour party stand as a warning to them. They may win more votes. But they will never produce a centre-left politics worth having.
Britain’s Labor Party Is Now the Party of Anti-Semitism
Since the hard-left parliamentarian Jeremy Corbyn became its leader in 2015, the UK’s Labor party has seen near-continuous anti-Semitic outbursts by its members and revelations of Corbyn’s own association with vicious Israel-haters, coupled with several ostensible attempts to set things right which proved to be shams. Most recently, the party has disciplined two MPs for complaining about anti-Semitism. Tamara Berens concludes that this is far more than a passing problem:

Many focus on the question of whether Jeremy Corbyn is an anti-Semite himself. He may or may not be. However, his deliberate actions to reject the Jewish community’s concerns, silence his moderate Labor detractors, and pedal anti-Zionism as central to his political image show that he is more than happy to utilize anti-Semitism for political purposes.

Anti-Zionism—and by extension, giving credence to anti-Semites—is fundamental to the worldview Corbyn has cultivated on his journey to political stardom. For most of his political career, Corbyn was a fringe socialist politician and supporter of the USSR, Syria’s Bashar al-Assad, the Iranian ayatollahs, and the Venezuela of Nicolas Maduro [and Hugo Chavez]. After becoming Labor leader, Jeremy Corbyn toned down some of this support for radical anti-Western groups. Nonetheless, he has consistently maintained his support for anti-Zionist causes. What’s undoubtable is that throughout his career, his ultimate goal has remained the same: rejecting Western values and embracing the alliance between radical socialists and Islamists in a strategic bid to normalize and implement socialism in the UK.

Politically, Corbyn’s strategy is working: according to a recent YouGov poll, 61 percent of the party believes Corbyn is handling accusations of anti-Semitism well. And 80 percent of the party deems him a good leader overall. The events of the past few weeks indicate that the Labor leadership has been able to build on their apparent success to . . . distance themselves from the overwhelmingly Zionist British-Jewish community. This perhaps became most apparent last Friday, when Jeremy Corbyn published another article in the Guardian disregarding his part in normalizing anti-Semitism in the party. The piece came out at 5:00pm, when the majority of Jews in the country were busy preparing for the Sabbath.


Jeremy Corbyn and the 9/11 Conspiracy Theories of a “Very Honoured Citizen”
In one of his bids to escape the antisemitism crisis engulfing the Labour party, last Friday Jeremy Corbyn offered this line in The Guardian:

Labour staff have seen examples of Holocaust denial, crude stereotypes of Jewish bankers, conspiracy theories blaming 9/11 on Israel, and even one individual who appeared to believe that Hitler had been misunderstood.

Mr Corbyn should know all about 9/11 conspiracy bunkum. He has been an enthusiastic champion of Raed Salah, one of the notable peddlers.

Raed Salah is the leader of the northern branch of the Islamic Movement in Israel. It is close to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood.

Salah visited the UK in 2011, planning to speak alongside MPs as part of his tour, including Mr Corbyn.
UK Labour MP under fire for accusing Israel of ‘genocide’ in Gaza in 2012
A senior lawmaker in the British Labour party has come under fire after a 2012 video surfaced that saw him claiming Israel was attempting to commit “genocide” against the Palestinians.

The opposition party, which has been mired in an ongoing anti-Semitism scandal, defended John McDonnell after the clip was published by the Daily Telegraph.

McDonnell is the UK’s shadow chancellor of the exchequer, having been appointed to the post in 2015 by Labour party leader Jeremy Corbyn, who has been repeatedly been accused of being soft on anti-Semitism among his party members.

In the video, taken in November 2012 during a round of violence between Israel and terror groups in the Gaza Strip known as Operation Pillar of Defense, McDonnell said: “Nobody can speak without expressing some form of solidarity with the people of Gaza … as the children are murdered and the bombs are flying from Israel.”

“I think it’s absolutely critical now that we use every platform we can to expose what’s going on, which is effectively an attempt at genocide against the Palestinians,” he charged at a far-left rally organized by the Unite the Resistance organization.
Extremist-Linked Assad Fan Lord Sheikh and His Zionist-Bashing Group
Sheikh is on the record publicly praising the controversial group the Al Muntada Trust. The group faced scrutiny after fears were raised that its funds had ended up with Boko Haram extremists. It has been linked to a series of anti-Semitic, homophobic and extremist preachers. In the video above, Lord Sheikh calls the group “marvellous”…

Then there is Lord Sheikh’s praise for the East London Mosque. Sheikh said:

“I would certainly commend the Mosque and Centre: not only do you provide a place of worship, but you provide a holistic service and more importantly the empowerment for women.”

Once again, the East London Mosque has well-known and established links to a series of misogynistic and homophobic speakers.

It gets worse. Lord Sheikh has links to the hugely controversial Interal charity, which was investigated by the Charity Commission over its links to Hamas.
Birthright co-founder: Don't criticize Israel on our nickel
Birthright Israel co-founder and billionaire philanthropist Charles Bronfman said on Wednesday that young Jews are free to criticize Israel, but not while enjoying a free trip, JTA reported.

“If people want to call Israel names and say bad things about the country, they certainly have the right to free speech. But they don’t have the right to do it on our nickel,” he was quoted as having told Haaretz in an interview.

His comments came after at least two groups of American Jews visiting Israel on the 10-day trip left the tour to join leftists groups on visits to Palestinian Arabs. The walk-offs reportedly were encouraged by the leftist American-Jewish group IfNotNow.

The young Jews who walked off the trip and some others who remain on them are critical of what they say is Birthright’s failure to deal with Israel’s alleged “occupation” of Judea and Samaria. Some have complained that maps handed out to participants do not draw a proper distinction between Israel and Judea and Samaria.

Bronfman said in his interview with Haaretz that participants on Birthright can extend their trip and join any kind of group they want or travel on their own to areas controlled by the Palestinian Authority.

“If they want to go to the West Bank or Gaza, they are certainly free to go,” he was quoted as having told Haaretz.

“What is not fair is making a big tzimmes while the trip is on. Frankly, I just don’t think that is fair to their fellow participants,” added Bronfman.
Another Jump the Shark Moment from JVP
The latest email from Jewish Voice for Peace's Deputy Directory Stefanie Fox may be a jump the shark moment for the anti-Israel group. The subject line reads "Why is the ADL training ICE in Israel?" Maybe Stefanie is secretly hoping you don't bother to read the rest of her offering. (Spoiler alert: they aren't)

Stephanie claims ICE has been learning techniques and tools from the Israeli military. She doesn't care if Peter Edge was in Israel studying cyber-security or attempting to learn from Israel's remarkable sucess at curtailing human trafficking. If it involves Israel, it must be made to be nefarious. Stefanie Fox spews typical JVP vitriole: "The real-world results of these trips have been Israeli & US officials sharing “worst practices” -- deportation and detention, shoot-to-kill policies, massive spying and surveillance -- that have become the go-to policies of agencies like ICE."

Why the hyperbole? Because 3 years ago, during the Obama administration the Deputy Associate Director of Homeland Security Investigations, one man, Peter Edge joined a delegation to Israel sponsored by the ADL.
American Association of University Professors: Don’t boycott the anti-Israel academic boycotters
But if you uphold the right to boycott, you necessarily need to uphold the right to counter-boycott.

The problem with this is that AAUP upholds the right to boycott, but only on one side. Substantively it opposes both the boycott and counter-boycott, but procedurally it upholds only the right of the boycotters.

AAUP also sent a letter to Israel regarding Israel’s denial of entry to Columbia Law Professor Katherine Franke, an academic boycott supporter.

Additionally, AAUP’s Committee A on Academic Freedom and Tenure sent a letter to the Israeli government in regard to the interrogation, subsequent expulsion, and apparent banning from Israel of Columbia Law School Professor Katherine Franke over her supporter of the “Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions” (BDS) movement in April. The letter urges the government of Israel to “reconsider your immigration officer’s decision and to revoke any further ban on Professor Franke’s entry for purposes of collaborative academic and scholarly work in Israel.”

Again, AAUP upholds Professor Franke’s right to boycott Israel and Israelis, but does not uphold the reverse. It does not matter that it is the Israeli government boycotting Professor Franke, since the BDS movement regularly seeks to impose government boycotts of Israel. So governmental power is used by both sides.

By turning academia into war by other means, the anti-Israel academic boycotters invited relatiatory boycotts. By affirming the rights of the boycotters to boycott Israel, but rejecting the right of Israel and supporters of Israel to counter-boycott, AAUP is not consistent or principled.
Legal action taken against first BDS motion by Latin American municipality
An organization of Chilean-Israelis has filed a legal action against the municipal council of the Chilean city of Valdivia and its mayor, which recently approved the first municipal BDS motion in Latin America. BDS refers to the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement targeting Israel.

The Chilean Community of Israel (CCHIL) organization sent a letter on July 30 to the Chilean state comptroller arguing that the motion contravenes Chilean law, that a municipal council has no jurisdiction to take such actions and that the mayor has overstepped his legal authority by advancing and signing the motion.

In Spain, dozens of municipal authorities have adopted BDS motions against Israel prompted by the pro-Palestinian advocacy of the left-wing populist Podemos Party.

Anti-BDS activists are now concerned that this phenomenon could spread to Latin America, and the legal motion to the Chilean state comptroller is an effort to try and stop it in its tracks.

The ACOM organization in Spain has successfully sued 33 local municipal authorities out of at least 100 that approved BDS motions. It is hoped that the widespread adoption of such measures can be avoided in Chile and the broader region.

Indeed, the Valdivia municipal decree itself, passed in June, references the BDS motions in Spanish cities, saying that its own measure was following in those footsteps.
Anti-Semitism Soars on U.S. College Campuses
Anti-Semitic incidents on U.S. college campuses have continued to grow in 2018, with at least 384 recorded incidents in the first half of this year, according to a new report showing the number of genocidal expressions towards Jewish hit new highs on campuses across the United States.

A new report by released Wednesday by pro-Israel organization the AMCHA Initiative, a group that tracks anti-Israel and anti-Semitic activity on college campuses, shows that much of the anti-Semitism on U.S. campuses is the result of activity by anti-Israel activists who promote imagery such as swastikas and tropes calling for the destruction of the Jewish people, according to the report.

Genocidal expression, such as images and language promoting the killing of Jews and destruction of Israel, "rose dramatically" over the past years, with at least 75 percent of such incidents "involving classic anti-Semitism" and "genocidal expression," according to the report. The number of such incidents appear to have dropped slightly from 2017 to the first part of 2018, the report notes.

Most notably, according to the report, "Israel-related incidents were significantly more likely to contribute to a hostile campus," the report found.

The AMCHA report puts figures to a range of anecdotal and reported conflicts on college campuses across the United States, where anti-Israel and anti-Semitic activity continues to flourish. Pro-Palestinian campus activists continue to aggressively silence those in the Jewish community and foster an unsafe environment for many Jewish students.
Christian Science Monitor Highlights Benefits of Jewish Sovereignty
One underlying message that modern mass media offers about Israel is that Jewish power and sovereignty in the land of Israel is a threat or obstacle to the welfare of people living in the Middle East. This dishonest narrative, which fits the agenda of authoritarian regimes and de-stabilizing political movements that use anti-Zionism as a unifying political agenda, infects much, if not most of the media coverage of the Jewish state. This “blame-Israel” narrative is so ubiquitous that it comes as a shock when a news outlet gets it right and portrays Israel as a force for good in the Middle East. But it does happen.

It happened in an article published on July 11, 2018 in the online edition of The Christian Science Monitor and reprised in the July 30, 2018 issue of The Christian Science Monitor Weekly.

The article, titled “Syrian war comes to Israel’s doorstep, brings swirl of changing attitudes,” was written by Dina Kraft. In the article, Kraft recounts how 10,000 people fleeing from Syrian Civil War have come to rely on Israel for their welfare and safety. They have gathered near Syria’s border with Israel because of the protection the Jewish state affords them under “Operation Good Neighbor.” The program provides food, fuel, medical supplies and in some instances medical treatment to people living in villages near Israel. As a result of the program, “[s]ome 5,000 Syrians have been treated in Israeli hospitals,” Kraft reported.

These acts of kindness have changed how many Syrians view the Jewish state, the article indicates.
BBC double standards in reporting social media incitement evident again
In April of this year the BBC News website’s domestic pages reported the sentencing of a Salford man previously found guilty of “encouragement of terrorism”.

“Muslim convert Adam Wyatt, 48, admitted disseminating a terrorist publication that said “Britain must atone for its sins in Palestine” and posting on social media that jihad was an obligation for all Muslims.”

The following month the website reported the sentencing of a man from Sunderland who had previously pleaded guilty to similar offences.

“A shopkeeper who tweeted support for Islamic State (IS) and called for “death to Shias” has been jailed for four-and-a-half years.

Mohammed Zahir Khan, of Nora Street, Sunderland, had admitted encouraging terrorism, dissemination of a terror publication and stirring up religious hatred.”


Unsurprisingly, the BBC did not send a reporter to interview either of those men before they were sentenced. Neither did it promote the notion that they were put on trial because of their identity to millions of audience members or portray either of their cases as being about “free speech”.

However, when an Israeli-Arab woman was sentenced to five months in prison after having been convicted of incitement to violence in her poems and social media posts, the BBC News website amplified her claims of political persecution in a July 31st report titled “Dareen Tatour: Israeli Arab poet sentenced for incitement“.
Shocking documentary shows how Sweden’s ruling leftist party ‘helped’ Nazi Germany
A shocking documentary about Sweden’s ruling Social Democratic Party, shows how the leftist party ‘inspired and helped’ Nazi Germany.

The documentary, produced by the party’s right-wing opponent, the Sweden Democrats, was removed by YouTube yesterday in an act of censorship.

But after a backlash it is now visible again on the social media channel of broadcaster Samtiden Dokumentär.

Ironically the documentary starts with the leader of the leftist Social Democratic Party, Swedish prime minister Stefan Löfven, telling how the right-wing Social Democrats historically have Nazi roots.

But now the Sweden Democrats are hitting back and have produced this documentary to tell the truth about their leftist opponents.

And it is revealing as it shows that the Swedish Social Democrats inspired Nazi Germany on the issue of Eugenics or “ethnic cleansing”.
Jewish couple in Belgium targeted with death threats
A Jewish woman living in Belgium said her family has been targeted with anti-Semitic abuse since one of their neighbors discovered they were Jews.

The woman, identified only as Nicole, 43, in an article published last month by the La Meuse regional daily about her ordeal, had been living for over two years in Marchienne-au-Pont, a suburb of Charleroi 30 miles south of Brussels, without incident, according to the report.

But this summer, the report said, she and her family have been targeted in a campaign of harassment that has featured written death threats stuffed into their mailbox and the scrawling of anti-Semitic graffiti on their front door.

“We are too afraid to leave our home since this started,” Nicole, a Chile native, was quoted as telling the newspaper. “Several people discovered we’re Jewish and ever since we’ve been getting death threats.” One letter addressed to Nicole called her a “dirty whore” and other insults.

The couple have filed several complaints with police but no suspects have been brought in.
Mayoral candidate: Questioning Holocaust isn't anti-Semitism
A self-proclaimed Holocaust revisionist is planning a run for mayor of Hilton Head, South Carolina, but says his beliefs will not impact his local anti-development platform.

Michael Santomauro, 59, filed papers to enter the race on Monday, according to the Island Packet.

Santomauro, who founded a roommate-matching service, made headlines in New York City in 2003 when subscribers to his service received a stream of emails spreading his beliefs denying historical accounts of the Holocaust.

In 2004, protesters surrounded his home and chanted “evict the Nazi.” He told the New York Post then that the Nazi label is “totally inaccurate.” He told the Island Packet this week that the protesters were “part of a domestic terrorism group.”

In 2011, Santomauro urged his child’s school on Manhattan’s Upper East Side to acquire the book “Debating the Holocaust: A New Look at Both Sides.” The book collects essays denying key aspects of Holocaust history, including the death toll, the accounts of survivors, the physical evidence found at death camps and the feasibility of the methods the Nazis used to carry out mass murder. Santomauro runs American operations for a publisher of e-books dedicated to Holocaust denial.
Germany lifts ban on Nazi symbols in video games
Computer and video games can include swastikas and other Nazi symbols, a German industry body said Thursday, after a heated debate over the “Wolfenstein” franchise in which gamers battle Third Reich forces.

The game was previously deemed to have fallen foul of the German criminal code, which bars any depiction of so-called “anti-constitutional” symbols, including Nazi swastikas.

Accordingly in “Wolfenstein II,” images of Adolf Hitler were doctored to remove his mustache and the swastika in the Nazi flag was replaced with a triangular symbol.

This sparked an uproar in the gaming community, prompting calls for games to be treated like films.

Because movies are deemed works of art, they are exempt from the ban, similar to material used in research, historical or scientific purposes.

Films set in the World War II-era, for instance, are allowed to be screened in Germany with Nazi symbols.
Curator of Elie Wiesel Museum Welcomes Global Outpouring of Support, as Romanian Police Arrest Vandalism Suspect
In the wake of this past weekend’s vandalism incident at the childhood home of the late Holocaust survivor and Nobel laureate Elie Wiesel in Romania, there has been an outpouring of solidarity from across the globe, the curator of the museum at the site told The Algemeiner on Wednesday.

Alina Marincean said the incident — in which antisemitic graffiti was scrawled on the home — came as a surprise to both museum staff members and local residents in the city of Sighetu Marmatiei, located in northwestern Romania near the border with Ukraine.

“Nothing of this sort ever happened to us and we are organizing yearly public events with a great impact on the local and regional community,” she noted.

Following the discovery of the graffiti on Saturday, Marincean recalled, “I spent the whole next day responding to emails and answering calls from friends, visitors, people I know from around the world from Finland to South America, Israel and the US, people who expressed their concern and also support.”

“There were also visits at the museum from politicians and intellectuals from Romania who wanted to point out the importance of this place that keeps Elie Wiesel’s work and memory alive, as well as the memory of all those 38,000 Jews who never returned to their homes after May 1944,” she added.
Patented Israeli Laser Technology Could be Used to Fight Forest Fires Across the World
Texas, Oregon, Florida, New Jersey, as well as Canada, Greece, India, Mexico, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and the UK are among other areas battling massive forest fires, a phenomenon experts expect will only increase due to climate change.

It was the massive forest fires in Israel over the past several years that gave electro-optics physicist Daniel Leigh the idea of using algorithm-controlled laser beams from helicopters or trucks to zap leaves, thin branches and pine needles off treetops in the path of fire. The flames are forced downward, where they can be more easily controlled by conventional methods.

Leigh explains that leafy treetops provide a highly combustible smorgasbord for hungry forest fires. Fanned by extreme wind and weather conditions, a forest fire that rises to the treetops spreads out of control in the blink of an eye.

When Leigh shared his idea with ecologist Zvika Avni, former chief of the Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael-Jewish National Fund (KKL-JNF) Forestry Department, Avni agreed to be the ecology and the wildfire fighting specialist for Leigh’s startup, Fighting Treetop Fire (FTF).
Swedish Christian Zionists to sail to Israel
Following Swedish pro-Hamas operatives’ failed attempt to reach Gaza by sea, a Christian supporter of Israel from Sweden announced he would take dozens of pro-Zionists to Israel on his yacht.

Stefan Abrahamsson today announced on Facebook that his yacht, Elida, will set sail from Sweden on Aug. 25 to Israel to show solidarity with the Jewish State and Middle East Christians.

“We want to break the silence of the severe persecution and cleansing of the Christian population that is taking place in this region,” he wrote. “As the only democracy in the Middle East amid ​​dictatorships, Israel welcomes us on this show of solidarity with human rights, freedom of expression, freedom of religion, and fundamental democratic values. In turn, we are taking a stand for the values ​​that Israel stands for.”

Abrahamsson wrote that on Aug. 24 he will organize a sendoff party at the Gothenburg marina from which his yacht, carrying about 40 activists, will set sail for Herzliya, Israel. The Elida is expected to reach Israel in October and dock there for several weeks. The sendoff will feature a discussion on “precisely these important issues,” he wrote. Lars Adaktusson, a lawmaker from Sweden in the European Parliament, is scheduled to speak at the event.
Israeli runner Lonah Chemtai Salpeter wins gold at European Championships
Israel’s Lonah Chemtai Salpeter won the women’s 10,000-meter run at the 2018 European Athletics Championships in Berlin Wednesday, completing the race in 31 minutes, 43.29 seconds.

Israeli-Kenyan Salpeter came 9 full seconds ahead of Susan Krumins of the Netherlands, winning the gold medal. Sweden’s Meraf Bahta came third.

The 29-year-old became the first Israeli to be crowned European champion.

“I still don’t believe it,” she said afterwards. “I’m really happy. I dreamed of this, but I didn’t believe it happened.”

Salpeter will receive a grant of NIS 40,000 (some $11,000) from Israeli sports authorities for her win.

Born in Kenya, she first came to Israel in 2008, working as a caretaker at Kenya’s embassy in Tel Aviv. While running at a Herzliya park, she was noticed by running coach Moti Mizrahi, who suggested she train professionally.
2.4 million tourists came to Israel so far in 2018, ministry says
Israel’s Ministry of Tourism has announced that 2.4 million tourists have visited Israel since the beginning of 2018, a 17% increase in tourists for the same period in 2017.

Citing findings from Israel’s Central Bureau of Statistics, the ministry said in a statement that the number of tourists is 46 percent more than in 2016, almost double the number of tourists that entered during the same period that year.

According to the ministry, 293,400 tourists entered Israel during July 2018 alone, which is around eight percent more tourists than in July 2017.

Over 250,000 tourists came by air, the release said, an 8.8% increase compared to July 2017. 26,200 of them came through land crossings into Israel, a 3.1% increase compared to that month the year before. (Israel only has land border crossings with Egypt and Jordan.)

“Month after month, we are witnessing new achievements and record highs in incoming tourism,” Minister of Tourism Yariv Levin (Likud) said in a statement. “I am pleased that, in the last month, we have also seen an impressive rise in incoming tourism... the tourism industry continues to be a significant factor in making exceptional impact and contributions to the Israeli economy and workforce.”

Levin also praised the ministry’s marketing initiatives and “innovative activities… Together with the incentives for airlines and investments in infrastructure,” for contributing to the rise in tourism.
2,200-Year-Old Earring Found in Jerusalem Excavation Sheds Light on Hellenistic Period in Judea
A 2,200-year-old golden earring was discovered at the City of David’s archaeological excavation just outside the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem, shedding light on life in the city after it was conquered by the Greeks.

The rare artifact depicts a finely-crafted head of a horned animal and delicate filigree work, and is believed to date back to the second or third century BCE, a period during which the Temple was the center of Jewish life, but the region was controlled by the Greeks and a significant percentage of the Jewish populace was influenced by Greek culture and beliefs.

During the time period the earring is believed to be connected to, Judea was a semi-autonomous Hellenistic vassal first under the rule of Ptolemaic Egypt from 301 to 198 BCE, and then under the Seleucid Empire, after Antiochus III conquered Jerusalem. Shortly afterwards, Jews who were not Hellenized ultimately took part in the Maccabean Revolt of 167 BCE, which is commemorated in the Hanukkah story.

According to Professor Yuval Gadot of Tel Aviv University, co-director of the Givati Parking Lot excavation, the find is the first earring discovered in Jerusalem from the Hellenistic period, found in an early-Hellenistic period building deep inside the dig.

          Jos van Emden wears Ellen van Dijk's skinsuit in European TT champs      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The Netherlands' Jos van Emden was forced to ride in his female compatriot Ellen van Dijk's skinsuit at the European time trial championships in Glasgow on Wednesday after his suitcase went missing on the flight over.

Van Emden, who rides for the LottoNL-Jumbo trade team, tweeted the day before the race that he was going to have to ride his event naked as his suitcase had got lost on his flight to Glasgow, inexplicably including @TescoGlasgow – the Tesco supermarket at Glasgow Airport – in the tweet.

Luckily – or possibly unluckily – for the spectators watching in Glasgow, Van Emden was able to ride his event fully clothed after his Dutch teammate came to the rescue.

With Van Emden's suitcase nowhere to be found, Van Dijk – who defended her European time trial championship title in the morning – was able to lend an extra skinsuit she had with her to Van Emden for his event that afternoon.

"Luckily, Ellen had a spare skinsuit, so I used that," Van Emden told Dutch national broadcaster NOS. "It was a women's one, yes, but that was OK."

Van Emden used it to finish a still-impressive eighth in the men's event, 55 seconds down on winner Victor Campenaerts of Belgium.

Political elections in France, Germany and the Netherlands have many anticipating a continued wave of "far-right," racist victories in the voting booth. The Netherland's Geert Wilders, who's anti-immigrant bombast was often compared to President Donald J. Trump, was defeated in this week's election. But France's Marine Le Pen remains a favorite to become the country's next president. Gus is also eager to hear commentary from our black British listeners about the kerfuffle raised by Samuel L. Jackson's remarks. The star of Pulp Fiction and Django Unchained criticized the importation of black Brits to portray African Americans in Hollywood. Daniel Kaluuya, the star of Get Out, took offense to the remarks - which may suggest that Racists instigated this controversey to promote conflict between black people. #AnswersForMiriamCarey INVEST in The COWS - http://paypal.me/GusTRenegade CALL IN NUMBER: 641.715.3640 CODE: 564943# The C.O.W.S. archives: http://tiny.cc/76f6p

By Nathan Ruiz

The Oklahoma State basketball team showed great improvement in the second game of its European tour, defeating the Netherlands National Team reserves, 61-49, in Rome.

Only a couple of days removed from a 27-point loss in what was the first collegiate game for many of their players, the 2018-19 Cowboys used a balanced attack to pick up their first victory as a unit.

Here are three observations from OSU's wire-to-wire Roman rout.

Boynton tweaks starting five

Oklahoma State coach Mike Boynton made only one change to his starting lineup from the first game, but it's one that dramatically changes the Cowboys' dynamic.

Meanwhile, tours have spanned the UK, Italy, Czech Republic, Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands.

The Guardian - Editor’s Pick
“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."

          Edith Stein, August 9, 1942      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

On August 9, 1942, Edith Stein, St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross, Discalced Carmelite nun, was killed in a gas chamber of the German II-Birkenau camp.

Born on the 12 of October, 1891, Edith Stein was a German Jew from Wroclaw, doctor of philosophy specializing in phenomenology. A teacher of the girls' colleges in Speyer and later in Munster. She converted to Christianity in 1922 and joined the Carmelite convent in Cologne in 1933. With the attacks on the Jews intensifying in Germany, Sr. Teresa Benedicta was moved to the Carmelite convent in Echt in the Netherlands. There she studied the works of St. John of the Cross. In 1942, after the protests of the Roman Catholic Church against the persecution of Jewish citizens in the Netherlands, the German occupying powers ordered detaining Catholic clergy of Jewish origin. Edith Stein was arrested on August 2, 1942, and taken to Amersdoort and later to Westerbork. A few days later 987 Jews from Westerbork were sent to Auschwitz. This transport included Edith Stein and her older sister, Rosa Stein. After a selection on the ramp in Birkenau, both were sent to the gas chamber where they were killed, probably on August 9, 1942.

Pope John Paul II beatified Edith Stein in 1987, and canonized her in 1988. A year later the nun became one of 6 patron saints of Europe.

MediaCom

Mars, Incorporated, the global pet care, confectionery and food business, and one of the world’s biggest accounts appointed MediaCom to handle its media planning and buying duties across most of the company’s portfolio. The result follows a competitive pitch against Omnicom, led by Hearts and Science, and Publicis, led by Starcom. MediaCom had previously managed media planning globally for the client and buying in over 20 markets, including Mexico, Canada, Australia, and the Netherlands. The entire global business – which is worth £1.4bn globally, according to data from Recma – will now be consolidated into MediaCom, including buying for the US and China. To deliver on the assignment, MediaCom will work as part of GroupMW, a GroupM solution, tapping into the resources of GroupM and WPP agencies to deliver outstanding results for Mars. Also Read: Eureka Forbes appoints Taproot Dentsu as its creative agency This decision connects to the larger transformation Mars has been driving with its marketing and media agenda – looking to build competitive advantage through insights, investment, and innovation. With an ever-changing marketing and retail landscape, Mars have been putting an increased focus on driving value from fast approaches to data, new creative and content models, and ways to incubate innovation. “This partnership will be a crucial accelerator in our ambition to be quicker, bolder and even more innovative when it comes to meeting our consumer needs. It brings thought leadership and actionable use of data and insights to meet our media needs,” said Andrew Clarke, Chief Marketing and Customer Officer at Mars. “It was impressive to see some of the fresh, challenging approaches from all three of the agencies. It’s helped evolve our thinking throughout the pitch and inspired us to be even bolder in our ambition. GroupM created a custom operating model for us which enables us to put data at the heart of our decision making, drive speed at a global, local and campaign level, and use our resources efficiently,” said Rob Rakowitz, Global Media Director at Mars. “Building on our existing remit, and extending our 25-year relationship, we, along with our GroupMW colleagues, will now be managing all of Mars’ media buying, as well as their data & analytics,” said Stephen Allan, Worldwide Chairman & CEO of MediaCom. “This confirms our place as the trusted media partner to one of the world’s most prestigious advertisers.” The full assignment will go into effect on 1 January 2019 and the transition period will run from August until December 2018.

I love maps, so I did a little homework. Using info contained on the flag for each user (Marion and Julia are nebulous, and I could only find one "bosch" for Tommy, but it shouldn't be that far off), I plotted a course for you.
Then if you get over to North America, you can start in Tallahassee, Florida (Farsol), go to Benton (cubbieblue), Greely (cscottk), Centennial (Lil Red Hed), Las Vegas (Jacovis), dip down to San Marcos (jtakagi), then buzz up past San Carlos (Bacchus) and Folsom (hanibalicious). Continue north to Bellingham (grammatoncleric), cross over to Canada to Vancouver (Leroy43) then west to Chestermere (MABBY), back into the USA to St. Paul (Cole Wehrle), Joliet (cmontgo2), over to (it got removed, somehow...) Yellow Springs (wifwendell), and a quick trip back to Canada, to Kanata (refusetoshine) then end in Brooklyn (nycavri) where flights back to Europe are plentiful.



Interesting-- when Nikki moves from Colorado to the Netherlands, her trip effect on these maps is minimal, since we are already going to Greely and "Den Bosch".


One note: Scott is moving to alumni, so one fewer Gelati to visit, unless you just want to come by. It is beautiful here. :)

Greetings, It's not so much that I'm looking for ancestors as I'm looking for existing family. I've been able to make connections with the families of my grandfather Pieter Moerman's siblings, but I have not found any descendants of Hendrikus Hermanus Uiterwijk and his wife Adriana Uiterwijk. From what I've found there were 4 or 6 children, the oldest being Roelof (Moerman) Uiterwijk. My 3rd/4th cousins in the Netherlands have long lost contact with this branch of the family. Is there any way of finding some connection? I can be contacted at [email redacted].

          Rickards: U.S. Must Turn To Russia To Contain China      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Authored by James Rickards via The Daily Reckoning,

Vladimir Putin stands accused in the media and global public opinion of rigging his recent reelection, imprisoning his political enemies, murdering Russian spies turned double-agent, meddling in Western elections, seizing Crimea, destabilizing Ukraine, supporting a murderous dictator in Syria and exporting arms to terrorist nations like Iran.

At the same time, the country of Russia is more than Mr. Putin, despite his authoritarian and heavy-handed methods. Russia is the world’s 12th-largest economy, with a GDP in excess of $1.5 trillion, larger than many developed economies such as Australia (No. 13), Spain (No. 14) and the Netherlands (No. 18).

Its export sector produces a positive balance of trade for Russia, currently running at over $16 billion per month. Russia has not had a trade deficit in over 20 years. Russia is also the world’s largest oil producer, with output of 10.6 million barrels per day, larger than both Saudi Arabia and the United States.

Russia has the largest landmass of any country in the world and a population of 144 million people, the ninth largest of any country. Russia is also the third-largest gold-producing nation in the world, with total production of 250 tons per year, about 8% of total global output and solidly ahead of the U.S., Canada and South Africa.

Russia is highly competitive in the export of nuclear power plants, advanced weaponry, space technology, agricultural products and it has an educated workforce.

Russia’s government debt-to-GDP ratio is 12.6%, which is trivial compared with 253% for Japan, 105% for the United States and 68% for Germany. Russia’s external dollar-denominated debt is also quite low compared with the huge dollar-debt burdens of other emerging-market economies such as Turkey, Indonesia and China.

Under the steady leadership of central bank head Elvira Nabiullina, the Central Bank of Russia has rebuilt its hard currency reserves after those reserves were severely depleted in 2015 following the collapse in oil prices that began in 2014.

Total gold reserves rose from 1,275 tons in July 2015 to about 2,000 tons today. Russia’s gold-to-GDP ratio is the highest in the world and more than double those of the U.S. and China.

In short, Russia is a country to be reckoned with despite the intense dislike for its leader from Western powers. It can be disliked but it cannot be ignored.

Russia is even more important geopolitically than these favorable metrics suggest. Russia and the U.S. are likely to improve relations and move closer together despite the current animosity over election meddling and the attempted murders of ex-Russian spies.

The reason for this coming thaw has to do with the dynamics of global geopolitics. There are only three countries in the world that are rightly regarded as primary powers — the U.S., Russia and China. These three are the only superpowers. Some analysts may be surprised to see Russia on the superpower list, but the facts are indisputable.

More to the point, Russia is a nuclear superpower at least on par with the United States and well ahead of China, France, the U.K. and other nuclear powers.

All others are secondary powers (U.K., France, Germany, Japan, Israel, etc.) or tertiary powers (Iran, Turkey, India, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, etc.). This strategic reality sets up a predictable three-party dynamic.

In any three-party dynamic, whether it’s a poker game or a struggle for global control, the dynamic is simple. Two of the powers align explicitly or implicitly against the third. The two-aligned powers refrain from using their power against each other in order to conserve it for use against the third power.

Meanwhile, the third power, the “odd man out,” suffers from having to expend military and economic resources to fend off adventurism by both of its opponents with no help from either.

China is the greatest geopolitical threat to the U.S. because of its economic and technological advances and its ambition to push the U.S. out of the Western Pacific sphere of influence. Russia may be a threat to some of its neighbors, but it is far less of a threat to U.S. strategic interests.

Therefore, a logical balance of power in the world would be for the U.S. and Russia to find common ground in the containment of China and to jointly pursue the reduction of Chinese power.

One of the keys to U.S. foreign policy the last 50 or 60 years has been to make sure that Russia and China never form an alliance. Keeping them separated was key, but China and Russia are forging stronger ties through the Shanghai Cooperation Organization – a military and economic treaty – and the BRICS institutions.

The BRICS analogs to the IMF and the World Bank, critical infrastructure, bilateral trade deals, bilateral currency swaps, arms sales, etc.

Meanwhile, the U.S. finds itself at odds with both Russia and China over different issues. Who’s on the losing end of that? Obviously, the United States.

This two-against-one strategic alignment of China and Russia against the U.S. is a strategic blunder by the U.S.

The United States has largely withdrawn from the Middle East while Russia has stepped in on Syria and elsewhere, China is expanding in the South China Sea, and Russia is expanding on its periphery. They have each other’s back, and the U.S. is the odd man out.

But the Russian/Chinese relationship can be exploited. China and Russia have a history of conflicting interests, despite the fact that they were both communist during the Cold War.

The two countries had a number of border skirmishes in the 1960s, and one in 1969 was particularly serious. According to a senior Soviet defector to the United States, “The Politburo was terrified that the Chinese might make a large-scale intrusion into Soviet territory.”

The Soviets even considered a preemptive nuclear attack on Chinese nuclear facilities. Soviet officials advised Washington of the possibility, but the U.S. response was firm, warning that any nuclear attack would possibly lead to World War III.

The point being, there are fissures in the Chinese-Russian relationship that the U.S. could exploit.

For another thing, the U.S. and Russia are the first and second largest energy producers in the world. Saudi Arabia is the third largest energy producer in the world. If you put the U.S., Russia, and Saudi Arabia in a loose alliance, they dominate the energy markets. They can cut you off, they can supply, they can set prices.

Who needs energy the most? China.

China has very little oil or natural gas. It does have coal, but if you’ve been to Beijing lately, you know it looks black at noon because the air is so bad and you can’t breathe it. Pulmonary disease is becoming fairly common. They’re literally choking themselves to death. So, Russia, the U.S., and Saudi Arabia acting jointly have China completely at their mercy.

But the U.S. presently has no relationship with Russia to help back up our position against China. It’s two-against-one, and the U.S. is the odd man out — thanks to U.S. political dysfunction and the media.

In a three-handed poker game, if you don’t know who the sucker is, you’re the sucker. Trump will try to make China the odd man out. Very few people seem to get this.

As China’s power expands and as U.S. power is put to the test in Asia, it is likely that the U.S. will correct its recent strategic shortsightedness and find ways to work with Russia. Or at least it should. This will not be done out of wishful thinking about the true nature of Putin or his regime but as a simple matter of geopolitical necessity.

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?

          Ryanair braces for biggest ever one-day strike with hundreds of flights cancelled      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Ryanair is bracing for its biggest-ever one-day strike on Friday with pilots based in five European countries set to walk out, forcing the cancellation of about one in six of its daily flights at the height of the holiday season. Ryanair, which averted widespread strikes before Christmas by agreeing to recognise unions for the first time in its 30-year history, has been unable to quell rising protests since over slow progress in negotiating collective labour agreements. In response to unions serving Ryanair strike notices, Europe's largest low-cost carrier has announced in recent days the cancellations of 250 flights in and out Germany, 104 to and from Belgium and another 42 in Sweden and its home market of Ireland, where around a quarter of its pilots were staging their fifth 24-hour walkout. That topped the 300 flights a day it had to cancel last month when cabin crews in Belgium, Portugal and Spain escalated the staff revolt by going on strike for 48 hours. A Dutch court also rejected a case from Ryanair seeking to block pilots in the Netherlands from joining Friday's strike, but the Irish airline said all of its flights there would run as scheduled. Ryanair operates more...
          Electricity rates      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Michael Briguglio (‘Up in arms’, August 4), presented a comprehensive overview of the rates ARMS Ltd has for different brackets of consumption, whereby the annual cumulative consumption is being billed every two months or so pro rata. This means that many consumers do not benefit from the lower brackets for lower rates given the short period of time being considered. Furthermore, ARMS does not allow consumers to carry forward discounts, which eventually results in consumers, mostly unwittingly, overpaying for their consumption, which results in additional income for Enemalta. This method seems not only quite costly, having to compute the bills for thousands of consumers at least six times a year, but also unfair to consumers. Enemalta/ARMS should take note of what their colleagues do in The Netherlands. In a nutshell, this is how it works. Every year, the provider considers the overall consumption for the previous 365 days and works out an estimate for the next 365 days. The consumer is charged every month a fixed amount equivalent to one-twelfth of the estimated annual consumption payable by automatic bank transfer. That means no administration costs. Once a year, the provider...

The Irish women's hockey team have been the toast of Ireland every since their meteoric rise to nab the silver medal in the FIH Hockey Women's World Cup, second only in the whole world to the Netherlands. It was the first finals appearance in an Irish field sport.

Naturally, they received a heroes' homecoming when they returned to Dublin on August 6. A massive crowd filled Dublin's Dame Street for their first public appearance back home and, as you do, they decided that a song befitting of the occasion was "All I Want for Christmas is You" by Mariah Carey. 

Well, in case you were wondering, the diva herself positively loves it!

Carey has a strong connection to Ireland. Both of her maternal grandparents immigrated to the US from County Cork, and she's previously said of her mother, Patricia Hickey, "She's so Irish, she loves Ireland, she's like, yay, Ireland! Waving the flag and singing When Irish Eyes Are Smiling. And that's great. I appreciate that and respect it."

          Has the Genie Been Let out of the Bottle? Ethnic Profiling in the Netherlands      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
A range of political and social developments in the Netherlands suggest that ethnic profiling in political and social discourse is no longer seen as a taboo. Increasingly ethnic profiling is perceived as part of the solution to ‘the problem’ of terrorism, radicalisation, integration, violent crime, serious public nuisance or public safety. Although Dutch legislation and regulations do not explicitly prohibit ethnic or racial profiling, for law enforcement officials to use generalisations based on ethnicity, race, national origin or religion is at odds with national and international law. Nonetheless, there is a risk that police, security, immigration and customs officials exercise their general and special powers on the basis of generalisations or stereotypes to tackle pressing social needs.

          The Next Step in Litigation Financing?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

 In recent years, litigation financing has become an increasingly important –albeit controversial – part of the litigation landscape. The ongoing evolution of litigation financing now appears to have taken a significant next step, in the form of a formal, public partnership between the litigation funding firm and a plaintiffs’ law firm. On October 28, 2015, the litigation funding firm Burford Capital and the plaintiffs’ competition law firm Hausfield issued a joint press release (here) in which the two firms announced their entry into a €30 million agreement to fund claims in Germany and to allow the law firm to open a Berlin office.

The parties’ entry into this agreement is, according to the press release, driven by the rising number of competition (antitrust) claims in Germany and in anticipation on increased competition litigation based on the EU’s adoption of the European Directive on Competition Damages Actions (here). The Directive, which allows companies to claim damages if they are victim of pricing cartels, went into force on December 26, 2014 and requires member states to implement the directive into their legal systems by December 27, 2017.

As discussed in Julie Triedman’s October 28, 2015 American Lawyer article entitled “Backed by Burford’s Millions, Hausfield Stakes a Claim in Germany” (here), the venture ”aims to profit from a wave of plaintiffs-side cartel cases brought by German companies against corporations that have already been sanctioned by regulators for violating EU antitrust laws.” The article quotes a representative of the funding firm as saying that this type of litigation has gotten a particular boost in Germany, where the national government has already issued 40 recent decisions against cartels of various kinds. According to the article, the Hausfield firm is just the latest of several U.S. based law firms that have recently ramped up their presence in Germany as a result of these developments.

There are a number of interesting features of these firms’ arrangement. The first is that it is so public. Typically, litigation funding arrangements are put in place and operate behind the scenes. The second is the investment concept behind the arrangement. By contrast to the usual litigation funding arrangement, which involves single-case financing, this arrangement represents an investment in the plaintiffs’ firm anticipated portfolio. The attraction for the law firm is not just that it will facilitate the launch of the firm’s new Berlin office, which is scheduled to open January 1, 2016, but the availability of the funds will allow the firm to try to draw clients based on the availability of cash backing from the funding firm. The arrangement allows the firm to offer new clients the option of having these often complex and expensive cases backed by the litigation financing.

For Burford, and indeed for the litigation funding industry, this is just the latest step in the growth of what has been a rapidly evolving industry. As I noted in a recent post (here), the reason that the industry has grown so rapidly is that it has proven to be so lucrative. Indeed, Burford, whose shares trade on the London Stock Exchange, recently reported $30.7 million in operating profits in the first half of 2015 (an increase of 56percent over the year before).

The industry’s increasingly prominent role and strong profits has also drawn attention to its activities. An October 22, 2015 article in The New York Times Magazine entitled “Should You Be Allowed to Invest in a Lawsuit?” (here) is representative of the kind of attention that litigation funding increasingly is attracting. While the picture the article paints is mixed, the article does quote Lisa Rickard, the President of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Institute for Legal Reform as calling litigation finance “the biggest single threat to the integrity of our justice system.” (Rickard previously posted a guest post on this blog also critical of litigation financing, here).

But despite the controversy surrounding litigation financing, it seems likely to continue to be an increasingly important part of global litigation. Among other things, it seems likely that we will see more of the types of joint ventures between funding firms and law firms that the Bentham and Hausfield arrangement represents.

And competition (antitrust) litigation is not the only area where the availability of litigation funding may be facilitating litigation. As I have noted in prior posts, the securities law actions investors are preparing to file in the U.K. with respect to the Tesco scandal (here) and in the Netherlands (here) and Germany (here) with respect to the VW emissions scandal are being funded by litigation financing. The increasing availability of litigation financing is clearly an important factor in the rise of litigation in a number of jurisdictions.

Those interested in seeing an example of where litigation investment appears to have gone awry will want to take a look at the Alison Frankel’s October 30, 2015 post on her On the Case blog (here), in which she examines the investment-backed class action litigation filed against BP in the wake of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Although the litigation funding involved in this case did not involve institutional funding firms, the availability of the individual investors’ investment funds appears to a part of the circumstances facilitating allegedly corrupt activity undertaken in connection with the claims against BP.

          Game Over?: Del. Chancery Court Rejects Disclosure-Only Settlement in H-P/Aruba Networks Merger Objection Lawsuit      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

 Stating his belief that merger objection litigation dynamic represents a “systemic” problem that has resulted in a “misshapen legal system,” Delaware Chancery Court Vice Chancellor Travis Laster rejected the proposed disclosure-only settlement of litigation that had been filed objecting to Hewlett-Packard’s $2.7 billion acquisition of Aruba Networks. In an October 9, 2015 settlement hearing in the case, Laster cited the “inadequacy of the representation” of plaintiffs’ counsel for the shareholder class as the basis for his rejection of the settlement, as well as for the outright dismissal of the case. A copy of the transcript of the October 9 hearing can be found here. Liz Hoffman’s October 10, 2015 Wall Street Journal article about Laster’s ruling can be found here.

Background

As readers of this blog know, in recent years it has become standard for just about every merger transaction to attract at least one lawsuit in which a shareholder objects to the proposed merger. These cases frequently settle based upon the provision of supplemental disclosures about the merger and defendants’ agreement to pay the plaintiffs’ attorneys’ fees, in exchange for which the defendants receive a broad release. The proliferation of this type of litigation – and in particular, the prevalence of disclosure only settlements– has drawn significant criticism, and, indeed, the judiciary of Delaware’s courts has previously shown their concern about the litigation as well.

As discussed here, Vice Chancellor Laster rejected the proposed disclosure-only settlement of lawsuits filed in connection with Cobham PLC’s $1.5 billion acquisition of the microelectronics company Aeroflex. In addition, at the roughly same time, Vice Chancellor John Noble withheld his approval of a shareholder settlement in a merger objection lawsuit arising from Roche’s $8.3 million acquisition of InterMune. More recently, as discussed here, Chancellor Vice Chancellor Sam Glasscock III reluctantly approved the settlement in the lawsuit filed in connection with Riverbed Technology’s $3.6 billion acquisition by Thoma Bravo.

The October 9 Ruling

As I said at the time following Glasscock’s rulings in the Riverbed Technology case, it would only be a matter of time before a judge at the Delaware Court of Chancery rejected a settlement on the basis that the value the plaintiff shareholders’ received in a disclosure only settlement was insufficient to support the breadth of the release that the defendants received in exchange. That is exactly what happened in connection with the proposed settlement of the H-P/Aruba Networks merger objection lawsuit.

In rejecting the proposed settlement, Vice Chancellor Laster cited a number of factors. First, he said that he didn’t believe that the case “was meritorious when filed,” identifying a number of reassuring features that negated potential concerns about the merger deal.

Next, he said that the record of the discovery that the plaintiffs’ lawyers took was “weak.” He was particularly critical of the representations plaintiffs’ counsel had made in their briefs in support of the settlement that discovery in the case had been “extensive” and that counsel had “consulted extensively” with financial “experts,” when in fact plaintiffs’ counsel had taken only two depositions and consulted with only a single financial expert.

While critical of the extent of discovery taken in the case, Laster did acknowledge that through discovery plaintiffs’ counsel did learn — and there subsequently were supplemental disclosures to Aruba shareholders — that H-P had offered Aruba’s CEO a new employment contract earlier than H-P has said in its regulatory filings. Laster said that that information might have been the basis for a full-fledged damages claim, rather than the supplemental disclosures only.

Third, Laster also had concerns about the scope of the release the plaintiffs proposed to extend to the defendants in exchange for the supplemental disclosures. In explaining his concerns with the release, Laster stated that “we have reached the point where we have to acknowledge that settling for disclosure only and giving the type of expansive release that has been given has created a real systemic problem.” He said further that the “repeat-process phenomenon” that has developed with respect to these kinds of cases and settlements has resulted in a “misshapen legal regime.”

Laster was particularly concerned that his only basis to evaluate the proposed release was the representations of plaintiffs’ counsel in a “one-sided” presentation. He noted his concerns that the representations to the court about the settlement potentially could have been affected by the fact that the only way the plaintiffs’ counsel can collect their fees is to reassure him sufficiently to allow him to accept the settlement.

He said that if the release had extended only to disclosure claims, he might have been prepared to approve the settlement, but because it extended to other claims and to unknown future claims and was given only in exchange for additional disclosures, the proposed settlement does not involve “an adequate get for the give,” and therefore the settlement not only “falls outside the range of reasonableness” but also raises “a question about the adequacy of representation.” Accordingly, Laster declined to certify a class and dismissed the case as to the named plaintiffs.

Laster offered some parting shots to conclude his ruling, stating that he said that the case looked like a “harvesting-of-a-fee opportunity,” because there wasn’t a basis to file in the first place, and further, that even though the plaintiffs’ counsel had something “fall into [their] lap,” it was just dealt with through the disclosure and the fee. He suggested to plaintiffs’ counsel that while he was rejecting their proposed settlement and their requested fee, he was at least given them the benefit of his disclosures, “so you’ve gotten now what you got for the class.”

Discussion

It will be clear to anyone reading this transcript that it was a tough day at the office for the plaintiffs’ counsel involved. While Laster repeatedly tried to soften the blow by saying that he makes mistakes himself sometimes, it was clear that he as very concerned with the plaintiffs’ counsel’s representations to the court about their “extensive” discovery and “extensive” consultation with “experts” in the case. He was even more concerned with the representations about the release, particularly given that, as Laster noted, plaintiffs’ counsel could only collect their fee if Laster was sufficiently assured that the plaintiffs had investigated the potential claims that would have been released.

Laster did indicate that he might have had less of a problem with the release (and perhaps might even have been prepared to accept the settlement?) if the release had extended only to disclosure-related claims and did not extend to other claims and unknown claims. Of course, at that point, Laster’s analysis stops being a problem just for the plaintiffs’ counsel and becomes a problem for the defense counsel and their clients.

The fact is that these kinds of disclosure-only settlements don’t just benefit plaintiffs’ counsel eager to collect their fees. They also benefit the defendants, who want to bring an end to the litigation. Settled practices and engrained expectations make it very difficult for defense counsel to agree to a settlement that does not include a comprehensive release including the release of unknown claims. Laster acknowledged that defendants of course want “complete peace,” noting that “I want complete peace. I want peace in our time, without appeasement. But just because you want it doesn’t mean you get it.”

Laster also acknowledged in the hearing that because his concerns about these kinds of settlements are well known, that parties  have started dismissing the merger objection cases pending in his court in order to enter settlements in other jurisdictions where perhaps there might not be as many questions asked. (He noted parenthetically that it was fine with him if the parties took these kinds of cases to other courts; he observed that “I actually don’t like dealing with junky things, and I would prefer to devote judicial resources to real litigation, not pseudo-litigation.”)

Laster’s delivered several messages for future litigants who want to have their disclosure-only settlements approved in his court. First, the papers filed in support of the settlement should accurately reflect the plaintiffs’ efforts in the case. Second, if the extent of discovery taken is an important support for to confirm the bona fides of the settlement, then the discovery actually taken must in fact provide sufficient reassurance to support the proposed settlement. Third, the release should extent only as far as the claims the plaintiffs litigated and not extend beyond to other claims.

While the plaintiffs’ lawyers may want to consider filing their cases in the courts of other jurisdictions, their hands may be tied owing to the fact that many companies have now adopted forum selection bylaws designating Delaware as forum for shareholder disputes and corporate litigation. Which in turn could mean that the days when just about every merger transaction draws at least one lawsuit could be coming to an end.

In the meantime, there is still an extensive backlog of merger objection lawsuits pending in Delaware. The message for the litigants in those cases seems to be that if they want their settlement approved in Delaware (as opposed to some other state court), the defendants are going to have to be prepared to accept a narrower release. Which, as I noted above, will be difficult for many defense attorneys.

          A Guide to Directors’ Duties and Liabilities in Europe      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

 One of the vestiges of the global financial crisis is that company directors and officers now face more scrutiny than ever. This scrutiny, in turn, has led to a greater liability exposure for corporate officials, as well.  This increased scrutiny and amplified liability exposure applies not only in the U.S., but in other countries, including, in particular, in Europe, according to a recent report. The report, issued earlier this week by the European Confederation of Directors’ Associations (ecoDa) in conjunction with AIG and entitled “Guide to Directors’ Duties and Liabilities” (here) examines the risks facing directors of European countries and highlights the specific risks in a number of countries. As the report details, the nature of directors’ duties and liabilities and the manner in which they are enforced can be affected by the differences in legal environments and board structures across Europe. The report also discusses the role of D&O insurance in helping to address these risks. The October 5, 2015 press release from ecoDa about the report’s publication can be found here.  

Changing Legal Standards: As the report explains, the duties and liabilities of corporate directors at companies in Europe is a factor both of the companies’ home countries’ company law and directives from the European Commission. Among other things, these directives have introduced a series of recommendations to harmonize and improve governance regimes across Europe and also to further strengthen the rights of shareholders. Domestic and European legislation has also  added depth and scope of directors’ duties; increasingly, directors must consider not only the legal standards embodies in the home country’s company law but also duties arising from legislation pertaining to the environment, health and safety, competition, data protection, and anti-bribery. Moreover, directors’ duties are also evolving as a result of cross-border issues as well.

Board Structures: While these general trends apply broadly across Europe, important country-specific aspect of company law also matter as well. The most important of these country-specific factors are the board structure requirements in the various countries. The board structures generally may be classified into one-tier and two-tier arrangements, which evolved, respectively, from the laws of England and Germany. Currently, seven EU member state (Austria, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Germany, Latvia, Poland and Slovakia) require a two-tier board. Eight states (Belgium, Cyprus, Greece, Ireland, Malta, Spain, Sweden, and the United Kingdom) provide for a one-tier structure. 14 EU countries offer a choice of structure.

Regulatory Enforcement Activity: One of the consequences of the financial crisis is that regulators have stepped up their enforcement activity. Regulatory action remains one of the biggest sources of litigation against corporate directors and officers in Europe and investigations alleging regulatory violations “are on the rise as newly-empowered supervisors seek to flex their muscles.” This more robust regulatory enforcement has been felt most acutely in the financial sector, but other industries – such as energy, high tech, telecommunications, pharmaceuticals, manufacturing, and real estate development and construction – are seeing an increase as well. The regulatory scrutiny relates not only to companies’ financial disclosures, but also other areas, including anti-corruption and bribery, health and safety, pollution and the environment, data protection, competition and cartel activity. Cross-border cooperation between regulators has expanded as well; for many companies, “their most significant risk may lie outside their home country” (which is a point I have previously made on this blog, here). Directors’ liabilities may “extend well beyond the borders of the country in which they are located, particularly where a company has U.S. interests.”

The Rise of Collective Action Litigation in Europe: The report also notes that “there is an impression that European culture is growing more litigious.” The economic environment coming out of the financial crisis “as made it more likely that directors and officers of publicly listed companies will be the target of lawsuits brought by groups of disgruntled shareholders.” Moreover, in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Morrison v. National Australia Bank, which closed off access to U.S. courts for shareholders who purchased shares in non-U.S. companies outside of the U.S., “a growing number of EU jurisdictions are providing collective redress mechanisms” – while at the same time “there has not been the expected surge in European shareholder litigation since Morrison.”

The Continuing Importance of Bankruptcy Related Claims: With all of these developments, insolvencies remain a leading cause of D&O claims in Europe. Bankruptcy trustees in most countries have a duty to investigate the root cause of an insolvency and consider whether the directors and officers were to blame. They are also “becoming increasingly aggressive in their pursuit of claims alleging personal liability.” There is a potential in some countries – including France and the U.K. – for directors to be personally liable for losses suffered as a result of continuing to trade while technically insolvent. In France, for example, it is common for directors to be held personally liable for wrongful trading (in around 10% to 12% of the cases)

Criminal Liability Exposures: Criminal liability also remains a concern. In the past, criminal prosecution tended to follow where there were clear cases of fraudulent activity and financial crime. However, in the current environment, regulators and prosecutors are increasingly likely to pursue criminal proceedings in their enforcement of laws ranging from health and safety to anti-bribery and corruption. Within Europe, countries such as Germany and the U.K. are more inclined than others to threaten liability in an effort to motive director behavior.

Cybersecurity-Related Exposures: Changing privacy and data protection laws have also the increasing potential to add to directors’ liability exposure. While the examples cited in the report are all drawn from the U.S. (including Wyndham Worldwide, Target, and Home Depot), the report also notes that emerging potential for similar claims in Europe.

Among the report’s more interesting features are the case examples that the report provides with respect to each of the areas of liability exposure that the report identifies. The report also sets out some practical steps directors can take to try to reduce their liability exposure. The report concludes with a brief discussion of the ways that D&O liability insurance provides directors protection from their liability exposures.

          John Quincy Adams’ 1794 London Interlude      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Lucia AmaliaSchueg

When John Quincy Adams arrived in London on October 15, 1794, on his way to The Hague to become minister resident to the Netherlands, he was a 27-year-old beginning his new life as an American statesman. We know much about his two week stay in London because he recounted his visit in his diary, transcriptions of which will eventually be available through The John Quincy Adams Diary Digital Project website.

John Quincy purposefully stopped in London to deliver important government documents; however, he almost lost these papers. "Just before we got to the London Bridge we heard a rattling before us and immediately after a sound as of a trunk falling from the Carriage. I instantly looked forward and saw that both our trunks were gone. One of them contained all the public dispatches which I brought for the American Ministers here For a moment I felt sensations of the severest distress." Luckily his brother, Thomas Boylston Adams, who accompanied him as his secretary, jumped out of the carriage and located the trunks. John Quincy noted how detrimental their loss would have been to American diplomacy and his career: "Entrusted with dispatches of the highest importance particularly committed to my care, because they were highly confidential," he questioned how he could have ever "presented myself" to the men for whom they were intended, only to inform them "that I had lost" their documents. He believed the trunks had been purposefully cut loose and considered their quick recovery "as one of the most fortunate circumstances that ever occurred to me in the course of my life."

It was during this visit that John Quincy participated in one of his first diplomatic activities. He, Chief Justice John Jay, and U.S. minister to Great Britain Thomas Pinckney discussed the document that would become known as the Jay Treaty, which sought to settle outstanding issues between America and Great Britain left unresolved after the Revolutionary War. That Jay and Pinckney included Adams in these deliberations demonstrated the young man's status among the American diplomatic corps. The three men held lengthy conversations during which the draft treaty was "considered Article by Article." Adams commented on the treaty in his diary: "it is much below the standard which I think would be advantageous to the Country, but it is in the opinion of the two plenipotentiaries, preferable to a War: and when Mr Jay asked me my opinion I answered that I could only acquiesce in that idea." John Quincy's inclusion in these discussions proved prescient, for in 1795 he received instructions to return to London to exchange ratifications of the Jay Treaty.

Downstream — Trip 1

As you might have picked up on, I am walking the whole length of the Thames Path currently. All 184 miles from the source to the Thames Barrier.

I started making videos about each day of walking, which I will be posting here, but the videos don't tell the whole story so I have decided to write about it as well. This is the story of my first trip, which I did over 3 days at the end of June. I had taken the Monday off so that I could to the first 3 stages in one go. That's mostly necessary because there is no, or really crappy, public transport along this first third of the Thames Path. But both the source, and Oxford, are reasonably easy to do by train.

Day 1 — Source to Cricklade

Project presentation.

Overall, this is a great on-air look that isn't just gratuitously cool but is built on a strong concept that digs deep into what makes Dutch football special.

          Applicant's Renunciation of Underlying International Registration Results in Judgment for Opposer      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
WHB Licensing, owner of the mark BRAUM'S for restaurant services and various food items, opposed a Section 66(a) application (request for extension of protection) to register the mark BRAM'S, in design form, for restaurant services and various food items. Applicant Ladage Beheer BV, a Netherlands limited liability company, based its U.S. application solely on its International Registration. Applicant renounced its International Registration (effective June 18, 2018), and on July 26, 2018 the International Bureau of WIPO transmitted to the USPTO  a NOTIFICATION OF DEATH OF INTERNATIONAL REGISTRATION. The USPTO issued a Notice of Abandonment on July 28, 2018. WHB Licensing, LP v. Ladage Beheer BV, Opposition No. 91237279 (August 8, 2018) [not precedential].


Trademark Rule 7.30 states:

When the International Bureau notifies the Office of the cancellation or expiration of an international registration, in whole or in part, the Office shall cancel, in whole or in part, the corresponding pending or registered extension of protection to the United States. The date of cancellation of an extension of protection or relevant part shall be the expiration of the corresponding international registration or relevant part.

Consequently applicant's extension of protection is considered cancelled as of June 16, 2018 and the subject application stand abandoned. Rule 2.135 provides that if an applicant in an inter partes proceeding files an abandonment without the written consent of the other party, judgment shall be entered against applicant. And so the Board sustained the opposition.

          Travel misery for 50,000 as Ryanair cancels hundreds of flights      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Up to 50,000 passengers faced travel misery on Friday after Ryanair announced it would have to cancel around 400 flights as a result of industrial action. Pilots in five countries are staging a 24-hour walk-outs over pay and conditions They include Germany, Sweden, Ireland, Belgium and the Netherlands. The joint action is the largest so far in an ongoing dispute. "What it is about is to signal to management that there needs to be an end to them trying to beat their own staff! And that is what we want to achieve today, explained Ingolf Schumacher, the Chairman of the Vereinigung Cockpit Union in Germany. "Today we want to send a clear message to Dublin: Ryanair must change!" Of course it's passengers that are at the sharp end of the dispute, even if there is a certain amount of understanding about the pilots' actions. "It is somehow a bit unfair that the pilots have to draw the short straw just because passengers want to fly for cheap. So, yes I sympathise. It is annoying that it's happening in the holidays but that is the only means they have," said one man at an airport in Berlin. Irish-based Ryanair is Europe's largest low-cost airline. Last year it agreed to recognise unions for the first time but it is in a dispute over collective labour agreements. The company says it has made every effort to solve the dispute.

Germanys exports to the United States in the first half of this year were worth 24.4 billion euros ($28.3 billion) more than its imports of U.S. goods, data from the Federal Statistics Office showed on Friday.The trade surplus was 100 million euros less than last year, but still meant Germany has the largest trade surplus with the United States than any other country, something U.S. President Donald Trump has vowed to reverse.Germanys trade surplus has also come under attack from the International Monetary Fund, which says it contributes to trade tensions and adds to risks that could undermine global financial stability.Germanys trade surplus with the whole world was 121.5 billion euros in the first half, slightly higher that last year.The IMF has urged the German government to boost investments beyond the levels agreed by Chancellor Angela Merkels government which plans to increase spending by 4 percent this year. Higher government spending would stimulate imports.Trump hit the European Union, Canada and Mexico with tariffs of 25 percent on steel and 10 percent on aluminium at the start of June, ending exemptions that had been in place since March. The EU and Canada responded with their own levies on U.S. goods.China imposed tariffs on U.S. goods in response to Trumps levies on Chinese imports, spooking German manufacturers who rely on the worlds two largest economies for growth.Fears of an all-out trade war between the U.S. and the European Union eased after Trump agreed last month to refrain from imposing tariffs on cars imported from the bloc while the two sides negotiate cuts to other trade barriers.Germanys exports to the United States - its biggest export market - rose 0.8 percent to 56.1 billion euros in the first six months of the year. France was the second-largest importer of German goods, followed by the Netherlands.REUTERS YK PS 1512

          Teresa Benedicta a Cruce      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Today is the feast of St. Teresa Benedicta a Cruce, also known as Edith Stein. Born into a Jewish family, she became an atheist as a teenager, and went on to study philosophy with Edmund Husserl. She was one of the more important students associated with him, helping him to put his notes in order for publication. She was unable to continue a career in academic philosophy, however; there were not that many opportunities for women, and the rise of the Nazis would soon put an end to what few there were. Reading the works of St. Teresa of Avila, she converted to Catholicism, and, with her sister Rosa, joined the same order as St. Teresa, the Discalced Carmelites. As the Nazi menace expanded, the order moved the sisters to the Netherlands in the hope of getting them out of the reach of the anti-semitic government. The Netherlands were invaded, but it was not until 1942 that the Nazis, angered by a statement by the Dutch bishops condemning Nazism, began a massive crackdown on Jewish converts to Catholicism. The two sisters were caught and shipped to Auschwitz on August 7. There are no records of what happened then, but it is generally thought that they were gassed in the gas chamber, with a great many others, on August 9. She was beatified in 1987 and canonized in 1998, both by Pope St. John Paul II.

From Potency and Act, her phenomenological study of the concepts of Thomistic philosophy:

I am conscious of myself in my actual being, and I am conscious of this being. My being is momentary, but it cannot be as purely momentary. Actual being emerges from a potential being and passes into a potential being, but all potentiality is phenomenally upheld [halten] by actuality and it cannot uphold [Halt geben] actuality. What upholds me in my temporally discrete existence between being and nonbeing? When I have pressed ahead into the transcendent sphere, I may conceive of the substance evinced in my flowing actual being as the bearer of this being.

...Can anything uphold [Halt geben] my frail [hinfällig] being, which touches upon genuine existence [Existenz] only from one instant to another, save true being wherein nothing of nonbeing is found and which stands changeless by itself alone, unable to have, nor needing, any other upholding [Halt]? And does not the very frailty of my own being lend certainty--not only to the idea but to the reality [Realität] of this pure, true, "absolute [absolut]" being?

Another excellent piece from the ever thoughtful Hannah. Now, cast your mind back to the TV series Yes Minister. The whole point of Government inquiries and consultations is to not do anything, while perhaps making the gullible think that something is happening. Too much of the economy is tied up in making, selling, servicing, and generally catering for motor vehicles for governments to want to improve cycling and walking. In recent years I have cycled in France, Belgium, and the Netherlands. The facilities for cycling and walking are so much better there, showing that it can be done if there is a true political will.

          Netherlands - Food, cycling, etc.      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
We're headed to the Netherlands and would like some recommendations for places to go, places to eat, and bikes to ride.

We've booked flights for the Netherlands (28 September to 8 October) and have a couple of vague ideas about itinerary but need to flesh things out some more. Right now, we'll spending some time in Amsterdam and Utrecht (numbers of days fungible at the moment). We're thinking about doing some bike touring (or "touring" - day trips out to interesting things and returning to the city). We're looking for some recommendations for:

-Interesting food and drink: restaurants, yes, but food halls, markets, beer gardens, and the like. If we can grab some excellent bread, cheese, and beer, and go have a picnic in a park that would be great.
-Outdoors: nice parks, nice scenery, interesting bike routes?
-Biking: tour companies/outfitters that will rent bikes (a tandem would be great) and either a) have touring bikes that we can haul large panniers on or b) provide luggage forwarding services. Self-guided tour packages would be fine but probably not completely necessary as long as we can get our stuff from Point A to Point B.

Stuff we've really liked in the past: biking the Loire, visiting Mercados and wine bars in Madrid, Borough Market, quaint small towns up the New England coast.

          Nederland - Broek in Waterland      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Jaap van 't Veen has posted:

Broek in Waterland is one of the villages in the Netherlands I do like very much. For me it is almost unbelievable to find such an authentic and picturesque place less than ten kilometres from Amsterdam and without the crowds in other more touristy places around.

Broek in Waterland was originally a fishermen's village and for that reason its church is dedicated to St. Nicolas (PiP 2), the patron saint of seafarers. From the mid 16th century this activity was rapidly replaced by stock farming and the production of dairy. The dairy products were transported to Amsterdam by boat. The harbour - called Havenrak (PiP3) remained important for the village and is still the heart of Broek en Waterland.

In the 17th and 18th century it was a popular village for the extremely rich (grain) merchants of this area and many impressive houses were built. The tiny village offers almost hundred meticulously renovated and preserved state monuments from the Dutch Golden Age period. Much of these traditional ‘Broeker houses’ have just one floor - due to the weak ground - and are constructed with a timber frame and walls. Much of them are nowadays painted in the famous Broeker grijs (main picture).

Broek in Waterland is surrounded by ditches and meadows and the ‘centre’ of the village is the Havenrak, a widening of the Ee rivulet (PiP4), which flows through Broek. The village has a couple of narrow streets, all lined with the traditional ‘Broeker houses’: having just one floor, due to the weak ground, constructed with a timber frame and walls and most of them are painted in the famous ‘Broeker grey’ (main picture). Some of them do have beautifully decorated entrance doors (PiP 1).

MSE

Hundreds of Ryanair flights have been cancelled today after strikes were called by staff in Ireland, Germany, Sweden, Belgium and the Netherlands - if you're affected, here's what you need to know.

The airline said 396 flights have been cancelled as a result of the action, meaning tens of thousands of holiday-makers could face disruption.

But the key rule is if your flight is cancelled you're entitled to a new flight (possibly with an alternative airline) or refund, and potentially £100s in compensation.  See below for more on your rights.

Ryanair cancelled one sixth of its flights on Friday, affecting nearly 400 trips in Europe

Ryanair has cancelled nearly 400 flights as it battles unions in Germany, Sweden, Ireland, Belgium and the Netherlands. About 50,000 passengers have been directly affected, with others likely to be hit by delays.

          Sziget Festival Days 1 and 2: Kendrick Lamar Is Late for the Party, Gorillaz Turn Things Around      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   


None


Sziget is as big as they come, and then some. The scale and scope of what is today recognized as one of the largest cultural events in Europe, if not worldwide, is noticeable the moment you step on the Óbudai Island, comfortably wrapped around the Danube and tucked away merely miles from the Budapest city center. There are hordes counting tens of thousands of people of all ages, ethnicities (more than 100 nations visited the festival last year), appearances and backgrounds that march across the K Bridge (one of Budapest 14 bridges), with Sziget welcome notes written in various languages dangling above their scalps. It's been a full quarter of a century and what once started as youthful and politically charged escapism from the chains of a totalitarian regime, today is a 76-venue, seven-day, 500,000-strong extravaganza of all kinds of music, performance art, TED talks, board games, yoga and even belly dancing lessons. Its ambition is staggering, its effects on the visitors impressive.

As I am handed the so-called Sziget Passport, a handy 78-page guide to what one can expect from August 8 to 15 this year on the Island. The Island itself is 76 hectares vast, 1.2 times larger than the Pentagon and 1.7 times the size of Vatican. There is so much to experience and take in it's all but impossible for one person to recount the many splendors of this week-long festivity; my situation is further inconvenienced by the fact that my partner was unable to attend this year and help out with the coverage but I'll pull through somehow. On we go.

The first day of the festival is usually reserved for one major, major headliner, accompanied by other acts on the Main Stage. Most other stages are closed, save for the Europe Stage and Afro-Latin-Reggae Village, two of the several world music venues. This year the biggest number of foreigners, over 20,000, come from the UK, overtaking the Netherlands as Sziget's No. 1 source of visitors from abroad. One of the explanations for this is that Glastonbury is in its fallow year, with the Eaves family taking a brief sabbatical, allowing the festival grounds to recuperate.

Virág Csiszár, Sziget's booking manager, spoke to the Hungarian portal, Index, about the implications of massive bookings - while more than 1,000,000,000 HUF (roughly $3.56 million) was spent this year on performers, it is becoming increasingly more difficult to book the most coveted names in show business simply because the prices keep raising by about 10% every year. Nevertheless, with Kendrick Lamar, Gorillaz, Arctic Monkeys, Kygo, Shawn Mendes, Lana Del Rey, Dua Lipa, Mumford and Sons and many more as headlining acts, the festival is certainly showing no signs of slowing down.

Virág explained the rationale: each day needs to have a "strong" headliner so that the festival can sell about 20-25 thousand daily tickets and manage to make a modest profit (indeed, Sziget has never been hugely profitable and most people in the organization are happy if they turn a 3-4% profit). If, for example, one day sees a full capacity of about 94,000, then it's a non-issue if another day or two is less visited and more focused on alternative acts. This year it's already been confirmed that the sold-out day is Monday, Aug 13, when Kygo and Shawn Mendes, who's only playing three dates in Europe this year, will perform. This is unsurprising, given that the majority of the world's most popular acts of the past 25 years have already played at the festival and that new generations of barely legal kids on the path to self-discovery are more than happy to show up in bulks for new pop stars du jour.

On with the show. It's August 8 and the temperature outside is a cool almost 100 F, hardly ideal to kick of "-1 Day" of the event. The heat has scorched the ground and it doesn't help that the dust has risen, penetrating every pore on one's body. There are sprinklers stretched out above the Main Stage and still plenty of cover to be sought beneath the many trees, but it's all but unmanageable to witness the afternoon shows on the wildly exposed Main Stage without perspiring to the point of becoming drenched. Few people are present for the Clean Bandit but luckily, Stormzy's performance sets the tone for what's to come over the course of a full week. The English grime sensation is giving it his all, his glitchy and spitting lyrics flowing seamlessly. The several-thousand-strong audience feels his ingenuity, he seems to be having fun with his performance and as a result, so do they. Stormzy's 60-minute set is energetic and even those who have never heard of him before are having lots of fun. The end is reserved for his biggest hits, "Know Me From" and "Shut Up", and the audience delivers, forming a large moshpit and going berserk in the ever-rising dust.

None


The tone changes drastically with Lykke Li, Sweden's pop darling and one of the many Scandinavian acts taking the world (and this year's Sziget) by storm. Though the sun hasn't settled and it the blistering heat threatens to swallow us all, the slight chanteuse is dressed in all-black fetishistic three piece, long sleeves and all. Perhaps she didn't account for the customary heat every August in Budapest, at least soon she took the jacket off. Her 13-song set is quite short and brings an enormous change of pace, her four-piece band supporting her longing, saccharine vocals. The show opens with "No Rest for the Wicked" and it's clear that we're in for an opus of sweet, suave, more down-tempo tunes. It's not a groundbreaking show and Lykke Li isn't lively enough herself to keep the 15,000-strong crowd energized throughout, but it's a decent show and the finale, saved, of course, for "I Follow Rivers", gives the first massive singalong of this year's edition.

Unfortunately, things only went downhill from there. As 68,000 people gather to see the shining star that is the 12-time Grammy and Pulitzer Prize Winner Kendrick Lamar, the stage is dark and nobody's explaining why. While 68,000 isn't nowhere near the capacity crowd of about 94,000 (for example, in 2016 Rihanna had a full house), and while it was clearly expected that more people would come, it still appears as though every person present on the island came just to see him deliver his gospel live. Good enough, however, 40 minutes past showtime, Lamar still hasn't appeared onstage. No statement about the rapper being late was made except that the Hungarian media mentioned there was an equipment malfunction on his side.

When he finally emergers to kick off his 2018 European tour, Lamar is forced to cut the show down to 16 tunes, out of which four are further shortened. The iconic Compton rapper intended to disregard the 11:00 pm curfew, but the authorities would have none of it and the audiences are left hungry for more, and better. Onstage, Lamar has a wicked presence, his brilliant, old-school delivery complemented by a full band, aiding him with restless percussions and guitars. The stage itself is all but empty, with Lamar circling its every corner like a hyena, waving his arms and pointing to the audience at every turn. The backdrop is a single large screen, and the letters "Pulitzer Kenny" flashing intermittently hugely entertain. He deserves the title.

None


The show is mostly hits, from the opener "DNA.", through "ELEMENT", "King Kunta", and plenty others. The audience at the front is animated and all of his many outstanding hooks are readily screamed. At the end, "Bitch, Don't Kill My Vibe", "m.A.A.d city", "Alright" and, of course, "HUMBLE.", save the day and provide a riveting closer to an otherwise merely alright show, marred by us missing out on almost half of it for undisclosed reasons.

Thursday, however, lifts the mood. It's sizzling hot again and no more than a few hundred people can stand to be under the A38 tent, Sziget's second biggest stage, where the Copenhagen-based experimental pop trio, WhoMadeWho, are trying their best not to collapse in the heat. They finally elicit a wild response through a rendition of Benny Benassi's anthem "Satisfaction", that guitar hook attracting hundreds more instantly from outside.

On the Main Stage, Max Colombie, aka Oscar and the Wolf, arranges a nice 60-minute set of synthpop tunes coupled with his crooning, velvety vocals. Unfortunately, again, there are very few people on the Island compared to previous years, and barely a thousand are standing in front of the stage, only vaguely interested in what they are hearing. Several thousand more sip beer and frolic around the forest in the back. It's not even 7:00 pm and a slender girl threatens to collapse under the weight of her much larger, and evidently heavily intoxicated, male friend, whom she is aiding in walking. The party hasn't even kicked off yet and apparently it's already over for some.

None


When Simon Green aka Bonobo steps on stage with his band, there is only about two thousand people waiting to see him. The last time Bonobo played Sziget, it was in 2014 at the A38 tent and to date it remains one of the most packed and beautifully received shows this festival has seen (this is spoken from 14 years of Sziget experience). However, as wonderful as his layered, often soothing electronic concoctions can be, Bonobo has never been a Main Stage headliner (moreover, he played in Budapest merely two and a half months ago to more than 5,000 people) and the risk is enormous - will the massive audience about to congregate to see Gorillaz live take to his cerebral, mostly wordless melodic configurations? In short - but of course.

Green is a veteran of music production and while most of his standard setlist holders are there, the arrangements have been carefully changed, sped up and augmented so as to fit a more visceral, festival atmosphere. He and his band of keyboards, bass, percussions and a brass trio, start off slow, with tunes from his latest release, Migration, and the moving single "Towers", sung by his long-term collaborator, the lovely and ever-barefoot Szjerdene. The first 15 minutes of the show not much changes, but before we know it, the night falls and Green picks up the pace, opting for more club-friendly tunes, and thousands rush to the stage. "Kong", with a little help from a loop beat, is the game-changer, getting everyone in the vicinity to dance.

The beauty of Bonobo's music lies in the fact that it is suitable to virtually anyone's taste, without compromising artistic integrity and intentions, and even those who just happened to get dinner around the stage when he first came on are hooked, at first just tilting their heads and casually swinging their hips, and then using all their limbs to move, leaving another round of beer for later and joining in on the party.

None


The show is a triumph and Green knows it as it's evident he aimed for a more relaxed and pumped up show, but even he is surprised by the size of the crowd toward the end and pauses for a moment to take a picture. He has all the reasons in the world to be pleased: this was a difficult task and he pulled it off, certainly introducing himself to some new fans in the process. "Are you excited for the Gorillaz show? I am, too," smiles Green before stepping off stage. At a drink vendor nearby, an aggressive techno version of the Game of Thrones theme song starts.

And excited for Gorillaz we definitely are, all 50,000 of us or so. Damon Albarn knows this, his band's set moved to 9.20 pm so he could play a little more - 24 songs, to be exact. When Goldtooth takes to stage in faded jeans and a plain yellow t-shirt, he is accompanied by too many artists to name - a sextet of back vocals adorned in varied, funky and often ethnic garments, two percussionists, two keyboardists, and two guitarists (one of whom is Jeff Wootton, band's long-term lead guitarist). This bunch of 13 stays onstage throughout the show and is joined by Jamie Principle, De La Soul, Peter Everett, and more for select singles. It's a gargantuan mishmash of sounds, styles and musical backgrounds, but that's what Albarn loves most - that's what we love most about him, too.

None


The set begins with Albarn shouting "Hello? Is anybody there?" through a megaphone; surely, it's "A1 M1", the closer from the band's 17-year-old (!) eponymous debut, and frenzied guitars soar, bringing the excitement to a maximum from the get-go. As the band moves onto "Tranz", one of the more prominent singles off this year's The Now Now, it's immediately clear that Albarn, languidly slouching over a microphone or a piano, is all in. The 50-year-old is an absolute magician of contemporary music and possibly the Least Reverent Man in the entire music industry. He does what he wants, when he wants and how he wants it and we are truly blessed is that what he wants this time around is a gargantuan party filled with what can be called truly world music. While the band's last year's release, Humanz, was well-received, the songs from The Now Now are better suited to this occasion, with more (up)beats, more delightful singalongs and more fast electronic backdrops, ideal for Jamie Hewlett's countless cartoon visuals (many of which are simply videos translated to the big screen).

Sure enough, Albarn's trademark melancholy and instant introspection are also present - when he longingly repeats, "Are we the last living souls?", he looks as though it's not a rhetorical question, as though he believes that this moment, whatever it may represent for him, really is the only thing that's left in the world. It's hardly a secret that Albarn's truly uniquely sorrowful vocals are a good part of all his bands' success, but when his pale blue eyes, now followed by deep slashes on his forehead, aimlessly pierce the crowd from a gigantic screen, you can't help but wonder if there is more to life than this one moment. He's a wonderful trickster, that man.

None


"Rhinestone Eyes" brings the first fist-pumping dance-along, while "Every Planet We Reach is Dead" sees Albarn shine again, singing better than ever to the one tune that really requires him to sing. He's not much of a vocalist and he knows it, but this time around he puts in the effort and the song mounts into an astonishing jazz piece with an alternative ending, the back vocals taking the place of piano crescendos. One third into the show, De La Soul storm the stage for "Superfast Jellyfish" and the crowd is completely sold, jumping, singing, smiling and generally enjoying themselves to the maximum. "On Melancholy Hill" and "El Manana" once again bring Albarn to the limelight, but from then on he takes a backseat while his countless collaborators take to the stage to help the show reach its boiling point (if anyone's interested, it's still over 80 F outside, though it's nighttime). The newer songs, such as "Strobelite" featuring Peter Everett and "Andromeda" mesh well with older hits and the pace never lets up.

With such an indescribably eclectic opus of varied genres and styles, it's inappropriate to save that Gorillaz have saved "the best for last", though it's no overstatement to say they've saved the most popular stuff for the end. "Feel Good Inc." is a rapturous explosion of hands in the air and shrieking festival-goers, gasping for air while singing along to the chorus, but "Saturnz Bars" and "Kids With Guns" fare well with the hypnotized crowd, too. Finally, minutes before the curfew, the drawn out sounds of Albarn's famous melodica get the screams out one last time, and "Clint Eastwood" begins. For all of the song's fame and praise, I don't think "I ain't happy, I'm feeling glad" is an iconic-enough verse. It should be; after 17 years and countless repeat listens, today we are older and hopefully more mature, finally able to fully appreciate the playful, deliberately half-assed irony conveyed to us so many times by Albarn. His messages, however melancholic in tone, are those of optimism and content, and this is exactly what he leaves us with after a brilliant performance which elicits smiles all over the Island.

It's only 11:00 pm but the legs are giving in. I heard Cigarettes after Sex and Seasick Steve gave great performances at the A38 tent but couldn't attend due to conflicting schedules. With five more days to go, it's time to get some rest, or at least it is for some of us - as I queue for the cab (a seamless, well-organized cue, just like pretty much everything else at Sziget), thousands of teenagers are running amok, about to get their drink on and wander off into the festival night. Good for them.


          Agricultural Sprayers Market Global Industry Analysis, Trends and Forecast-2025      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/10/2018 -- Technological progress has been underpinning the global agricultural sprayers market. For example, drones are now used to spray apart from mapping and surveying. Improving agricultural drone technology is making it all possible. Such leveraging of technologies has been necessitated by pressing need for food resulting from a burgeoning world population. Modernization of agricultural equipment has served to increase crop yields.

Agricultural sprayers can be used to spray herbicides, fungicides, insecticides, etc. They can be electric, fuel based, and handheld sprayers. Of them, the fuel-based agricultural sprayer is witnessing swift uptake on account of its increased efficiency. The electric sprayers are also seeing surging popularity on account of the growing number of innovations in sprayers to make them more useful. The different types of agricultural sprayers available in the market are foot/pedal sprayers, knapsack sprayers, traction pneumatic sprayers, aerial sprayers, and tractor-mounted sprayers. Of them, the segment of traction pneumatic sprayers is slated to dominate the market because of the high volumes of agrochemicals it can dispense.

From a geographical standpoint, Europe contributes the most to the market for agricultural sprayers. The Netherlands is primarily driving the market in Europe by dint of being one of the major vegetable producers. Overall, the market in Europe is being driven by the need to better crop yield which requires the use of agricultural sprayers.

The Middle East and Africa is another promising region on account of harsh climate and dearth of water for irrigation. This has necessitated the use of efficient sprayers to spray agrochemicals for a good crop yield.

Agricultural Sprayers Market: Overview

Agricultural sprayers are used widely in the spraying of herbicides, fungicides, insecticides, and fertilizers to crops for better yield and protection from crop-damaging microorganisms. These are one of the most important and essential equipment required for the growth of the crop, and also provide protection from pests, insects, and other organisms, thereby helping farmers gain good crop yield and capital. Agriculture sprayers is one of the oldest equipment used by the farmers in agricultural production.

Agricultural Sprayers Market: Dynamics and Trends

Shift from traditional farming techniques to advanced farming techniques is accelerating the need for agricultural sprayers, thereby driving the overall market growth. Increase in adoption of innovative agricultural equipment to save time and human effort is also contributing to the market growth. The agricultural sprayers market can be expanding significantly in Asia Pacific, due to the subsidies allotted by the governing bodies of developing economies in the region.

Demand for agricultural sprayers has also been rising due to the development of new agrochemicals, which can be applied by sprayers. Agricultural sprayers lower the risk of chemical exposure and also provide better pesticide application technology.

Agricultural Sprayers Market: Segmentation

Based on type, the agricultural sprayers market can be segmented into electric, fuel based, and handheld sprayers. The fuel based segment is estimated to account for major share of the market, due to its higher efficiency. Electric is predicted to be an emerging segment, due to the increasing number of innovations in improvement of the yield of sprayers. Many rural areas in developing economies such as China and India are witnessing rapid developments in providing rural electricity. Hence, the outlook for the providers of electric agricultural sprayers appears positive in the near future in the Asia Pacific region.

In terms of sprayer type, the agricultural sprayers market can be divided into knapsack sprayers, foot/pedal sprayers, traction pneumatic sprayers, tractor-mounted sprayers, and aerial sprayers. The traction pneumatic sprayers segment is estimated to hold key share of the market during the forecast period. Led by the capability of applying agrochemicals in high volumes, the traction pneumatic agricultural sprayers segment is projected to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period.

Based on the type of application, the agricultural sprayers market can be segregated into fungicide, herbicide, insecticides, and others. Among these, the fungicide segment is expected to account for significant share in the near future. Application of pesticides is mandatory for all kinds of crops, and these pesticides are also applied at regular time cycles.

Agricultural Sprayers Market: Regional Overview

Agriculture is the primary source of food in many countries in Asia Pacific. Due to the increasing population, the demand for food is rising proportionally. This is driving the need of agricultural sprayers. Furthermore, crop yields have been increased due to the modernization of agricultural equipment.

Europe also contributes significantly to the overall growth of the agricultural sprayers market. The Netherlands accounts for significant share of the agricultural sprayers market in Europe. The country is one of the major producers of vegetables in Europe. Rise in demand for the improvement of crop yield in Europe is primarily driving the need for efficient agricultural sprayers in the region.

The need for aggressive farming techniques is increasing in the Middle East and Africa due to the harsh climatic conditions and paucity of water resources in the region. This type of agriculture requires more efficient sprayers for proper application of agrochemicals to obtain good crop yield. Thus, the Middle East and Africa region is anticipated to provide immense opportunities to the vendors of agricultural sprayers in the near future.

          Let’s transfer more technology to China, by Scott Sumner      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Noah Smith has a new Bloomberg column that expresses worry about too much technology being transferred to China.  This partly reflects a widespread concern about China stealing technology, which might reduce the incentive of inventors to create new ideas.  But most of Smith’s column focuses on more legitimate forms of technology transfer, such as Chinese foreign investments and joint ventures with Western firms. Smith worries about the effects of this sort of technology transfer, and is sympathetic to the idea that the US government might want to slow this process:

Suppose a Chinese electric carmaker wants to win market share by selling cars with the best cutting-edge battery technology. How does it get that technology? It can hire some engineers, build a lab and try to develop it inhouse. It can partner with a university research lab to create it. Or alternatively, it can buy an American company that already has the technology.

The latter move might be profitable for both the acquirer and the target, but it can stifle a whole ecosystem from developing around that company in the U.S. The Chinese company will likely take the battery technology back to China with it, producing the batteries in China and sourcing the parts in China. Had the company not been acquired, it might have spawned a network of American suppliers and customers. Some of its employees would have left and gone to work for those suppliers and customers, or for competitors, or spun off their own businesses. They would have taken their knowledge of the first company’s technologies with them, where those ideas — whether protected by nondisclosure agreements or not — would combine with those of others, potentially creating whole new innovations. Instead, since a Chinese company now takes the tech back with it, that virtuous cycle will now happen in China instead, and the U.S. economy as a whole will lose out.

The beauty of information is that use by one person does not preclude use by others. I see technology transfer to China as a huge win/win for the global economy.  Let’s start with the obvious:

1. Technology transfer to China is a huge win for China itself, as Smith himself notes:

China’s government can therefore be expected to take drastic measures to escape the dreaded middle-income trap — and that means acquiring foreign technology by hook or by crook.

Moving a country of 1.4 billion people from middle income to high income is a huge gain in welfare.  In fairness, this will occur regardless of what policy the US adopts regarding technology transfer, but it will happen faster with a liberal regime.  Some might ask why we should care about the welfare of the Chinese.  I’d ask people to first consider why we should care about the welfare of anyone outside our friends and family.  The answer is simple; it’s the right thing to do.

2.  Technology transfer is also a huge win for the US, in several different ways.  The direct advantage is that the US can then concentrate on what it does best—creating new ideas, and then earning profits from selling those ideas to China.  China concentrates on what it does best, which is manufacturing goods like batteries, and uses the revenue to buy more new ideas from the US.  That’s the standard argument for free trade.  It’s true that one can create models involving assumptions such as increasing returns and agglomeration, where “strategic trade policies” can produce gains for the domestic country, but even the developers of those models (such as Paul Krugman) are often skeptical of whether real world governments have the ability to pick the appropriate sectors to protect.  And again, there’s a big hurdle for protectionists to overcome, as the direct effect of investment barriers is negative.

3.  I think that Smith also underrates the advantage to the US of a rich China.  Let’s start with economics.  If you look at where American companies earn their biggest profits, it’s highly skewed toward high-income economies.  Thus the Netherlands provides a bigger market for US products than the much more populous Tanzania.  Per capita income is a huge factor in determining the size of the market for the products of companies such as Apple, Disney, GM and Coke.

But that’s not all.  China is not just much bigger than the US, it’s also more culturally homogeneous (at 92% Han).  And that has resulted in a situation where, despite its size, China has a comparative advantage in a fairly small set of sectors—particularly mid-level manufacturing.  In contrast, the US has important advantages in a wide range of sectors, including food, energy, high tech equipment, software, entertainment, consulting, finance, military hardware, commercial airliners, capital goods, and many others.  A market with 1.4 billion affluent Chinese would be a mind-boggling fertile playground for American companies to sell into.  We should welcome a rich China, even if we are evil people who don’t care about the welfare of 1.4 billion fellow human beings.

4.  A rich China is also likely to be a more peaceful China.  In recent decades, wars are increasingly less likely to be fought in rich areas.  Think Eastern vs. Western Europe, or Latin America vs. North America, or Japan vs. South Asia.  WWII convinced rich nations that they had too much to lose from modern weapons.  That doesn’t mean that things can’t swing back the other way (as during 1914-45), and certainly a rich China would pose a greater military threat to Taiwan.  On balance, however, the evidence points to wealth making the world a more peaceful place, at least in the era since the invention of the atomic bomb.  My guess is that if China ever decides to put the screws on Taiwan, it will be via economic warfare, not military.  Also note that Taiwan would probably be more comfortable joining a high-income mainland China than a middle-income China.  And finally, transition to democracy is extremely highly correlated with income, and I emphasize “extremely”.  Again, that doesn’t prove that a rich China would become democratic, but it’s certainly a more likely outcome than for a middle-income China.

PS.  Speaking of China, this is just the tip of the iceberg:

The tariffs imposed by President Trump have claimed more jobs, this time at a consumer-electronics manufacturing plant in South Carolina.

Element Electronics blamed tariffs on Chinese imports for its decision to shut down its manufacturing facilities in Winnsboro, SC, a town located about 30 miles north of the state’s capital. The plant, which makes Element TVs, will maintain a skeleton crew of eight workers, as it hopes the shutdown will be temporary.

          Why the Concept of God Might Be a Useful Error      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
by Charles Mudede

This supermassive black hole is eating a star.
This supermassive black hole is eating a star. NASA/JPL-Caltech

A galaxy that's 12 billion light-years away was identified by a team of astronomers in the Netherlands. They used a Giant Meter-wave Radio Telescope (GMRT) in India to spot the distant object. The galaxy is located at a time when the universe has only existed for a billion years—that is, seven percent of its current age, 13.5 billion. This is the most distant radio galaxy on record. Radio galaxies are very active systems because they eject from the supermassive black holes at their center terrific jets of relativistic particles (meaning, particles that move at a speed that's "comparable to the speed of light"). The name of the galaxy is TGSS J1530+1049.

The discovery of this particular radio galaxy has surprised astronomers because of where it is in time. The thinking has been that a galaxy with a supermassive black hole takes a very long time to develop. And so the expectation has been, the deeper you look into time—the early years of the universe—the less active the galaxies. TGSS J1530+1049 has thrown this thinking into confusion. A radio galaxy matured in the youth of the universe. With that said, let's turn to another question that might be on your mind. What has God to do with any of this?

As far as I can tell, simply nothing. I'm almost certain that God, as conceived by Christians, does not exist anywhere in this or other universes. And almost nothing could make me bet on Quentin Meillassoux's God (He might not exist now, but He could exist in the future). Nevertheless, the idea of God might have something to it. To get my meaning across, I need to exhume the story of John Dee, Thomas Digges, and a supernova that appeared in the skies of 1572.

Because there are few with anything that approximates a classical training, the Aristotelian universe that dominated the thought not only of medieval Europe but also the Bright Age of Islam, is unknown to most people with or without an advanced education. The Aristotelian universe saw the stars as fixed and forever stuck in the third to last sphere in the heavens above. The last sphere was that of the prime mover.

So, there was, in this conception, nothing like Yeats' "disheveled wandering stars." Then in 1572, something bright appeared in the sky. And it grew and grew and became visible during the day. Eventually, this new star, which amazed many humans, began to dim. Among the amazed were Thomas Digges, an English mathematician and astronomer, and his mentor, John Dee, another English mathematician and astronomer (and advisor to Queen Elizabeth). Dee had one foot in science and the other in magic.

It was the magician who suggested to Digges that the new star in the sky could be a moving one: it got closer to earth, which is why it got brighter; now it's going away from the earth, which is why it's getting dimmer. The idea was, of course, totally wrong. The bright object in the sky was not a star but a supernova, which was eventually identified in 1952. But just the idea of a moving star finally cracked the wholly incorrect Aristotelian astral shell.

The idea itself (that stars moved), which was derived from an error, made it possible to eventually access the truth of the universe. Stars are not fixed and eternal and close to some prime mover. They did wander through space. They came and went through time. They were a part of a process that often formed galaxies, which were also moving and evolving. The journey to these scientific truths was a total error. A wrong reading led to the right ideas.

I think God might be like this. A complete misreading of a feeling that, as a concept, might be useful or even reveal the correct picture of things to (or an ontology of) beings that can reflect through a form of thought that is surplus, or overflows usefulness or utility. God might be something like fucking with a condom or birth control. Meaning, an abortion might actually be closer to Him. He or She (and most likely the latter) can only be extra, be overflowing. This is a kind of luxurious panpsychism. How else can we better explain a Coltrane or a Shakespeare? Surplus sound, surplus words, surplus being.

I once saw a tailless raccoon in my backyard playing on the hammock in the morning. It fell off it; it climbed on it again, swung for a bit, and fell of it again. It was having a good time. Maybe one day I will say a little prayer to this moment in time, in the city, in the solar system, in the galaxy.
