Brief



Over ethische worstelingen
Met autonomie en levensvragen



Brugge, 9 augustus 2018



Adelheid,



Bij zijn dood werd getreurd om zijn overlijden, maar
tegelijk bleven mensen geërgerd over zijn weigering
de wet over het toestaan van Abortus onder voorwaarden
te ondertekenen en te promulgeren. Het bleef en blijft
een blijk van complex evalueren door mensen van
gebeurtenissen en handelingen. 
De kwestie blijft mensen beroeren, namelijk of het wel kan dat een vrouw van geen zwangerschap wil weten en dus kiest voor een abortus. Toen eerlang de toenmalige koning Boudewijn werd herdacht, had ik de indruk dat over zijn weigering de abortuswet te ondertekenen, niet echt aan bod is gekomen. Waarom wil men hier niet aan? In Argentinië heeft de senaat niet voldoende steun verleend aan een voorstel abortus mogelijk te maken op vraag van de vrouw. Men wil het niet weten.

Ik weet het wel, de kerk kan abortus niet toelaten, om allerlei redenen, zegt men, maar mij is nooit duidelijk geworden waar nu het verbod op berust. Laat me toe eerlijk te zijn, al man ken ik die gewetensnood niet en kan ik me niet zomaar inleven in de beleving van een vrouw die ongewenst zwanger is. Dat bemoeilijkt het gesprek niet, omdat ik denk dat die beleving juist de kern van de zaak zou moeten zijn en dat politici, bestuurders, mannen in grote mate, de eerlijkheid zouden moeten opbrengen het ook niet te weten. Nu, het probleem ligt in demografische opvattingen en de idee dat vrouwen via het baren van kinderen moeten bijdragen aan de groei van de samenleving. Voor de kerk gaat het onder meer over het vermijden van ongeregelde seksualiteit en een enge opvatting van wat geoorloofd is. Nu, als we alle argumenten pro verbod op abortus bij elkaar leggen, dan blijkt het zwaartepunt te liggen bij de controle op mensen, die niet uit de band mogen springen, vrouwen minder dan mannen.

Er is de laatste decennia veel veranderd in de samenleving, waarbij autonomie van de persoon een belangrijke plaats heeft gekregen, al lijkt men daar dezer dagen ook vanuit progressieve hoek minder aandacht aan te besteden. Autonomie lijkt niet meer de hoeksteen van het samenleven te zijn, waarbij autonomie betekent dat een persoon net zo goed tegen de belangen van het collectief in te gaan als net die belangen bevorderen. Men kan best autonomie bevorderen zonder te weten hoe mensen daarmee om zullen gaan. Hier kan men bij Bernard Mandeville terecht, die begrepen had dat een samenleving van brave, onderworpen mensen die zich strikt aan de regels houden, wel eens weinig voorspoedig zou kunnen zijn. Het belang van autonomie betekent dat mensen zelf keuzes kunnen maken en de restrictieve politiek omtrent voorbehoedsmiddelen en abortus in dictaturen laat zien dat het hen inderdaad om controle is te doen, controle over individuen en mensen instrumentaliseren, juist, ook als broedmachine. Dat zou men een inbreuk op de mensenrechten kunnen noemen.

Nu is het wel zo dat zowel progressief ingestelde mensen als conservatief ingestelde mensen het instrumentaliseren van mensen voor hun doel niet onoverkomelijk vinden, want als mensen zich inzetten voor de goede zaak, dan is dat toch goed. Maar de instrumentalisering begint als mensen vervolgens de directieven van hogerhand moeten gaan volgen en zelf niet meer hoeven te denken. Nu kan men natuurlijk onderschrijven dat instrumentalisatie van personen sinds de Verlichting uitgebannen is, maar dan ging het om de meest extreme vorm, slavernij, die overigens nog niet helemaal verdwenen is. Het kan best dat er minder in het oog springende vormen van instrumentalisatie aan het licht komen, als men de zaak beter gaat onderzoeken. De plannen van de nazi’s om vrouwen die aan Arische criteria voldeden te laten bevruchten door al even Arische mannen, een kweekprogramma aka Lebensborn, waarover minder gesproken wordt als een abjecte vorm van omgaan met het leven van mensen, dan andere uitwassen van de nazi-ideologie, de Endlösung op de eerste plaats.

Net in het Lebensbornprogramma kwam aan het licht hoever de Nazi’s zouden gaan in het realiseren van hun raciale dromen. Waarom men vrouwen bereid vond daaraan mee te werken, blijft moeilijk te begrijpen, tenzij men aannemen moet dat er inderdaad voldoende kandidates waren te vinden, zodat men zelfs uiterst strenge rassenkwaliteitseisen kon hanteren. Dat men het heeft over soldatenmoeders en het aanvullen van het geboortecijfer blijft in feite binnen de logica van de meeste landen, afgezien van de term soldatenmoeders, want dat stipuleerde natuurlijk dat de kinderen vanzelfsprekend soldaat zouden worden in de SS. De aanpak, het onderzoek naar belastende ziekten en de zorg die moeders in het project kregen, dragen het stempel van de maakbaarheidsidee van de samenleving, waarbij het spontane verwekken van kinderen niet meer aan de orde is. De inzetbaarheid voor het land en vooral voor de SS – behalve de “minder gelukte” kinderen maken het tot een mensonterend programma dat op de keeper beschouwd niet echt succesvol is gebleken. Wel maakten SS-echtgenotes gebruik van de goede verzorgen, wat ook weer voor problemen zorgde.

Overigens is gebleken dat na de oorlog de kinderen die in het programma geboren waren en in pleeggezinnen opgenomen waren of geadopteerd, bijzonder slecht behandeld werden, waardoor ze voor de tweede keer slachtoffer werden van hun moedwillige verwekking. De afkeer van die kinderen mag dan begrijpelijk lijken, ze valt natuurlijk alleen te laken, al is dat voor ons gemakkelijk zat, want wij hebben er niets mee te maken. Velen pleegden uiteindelijk zelfmoord en waren slachtoffer van emotionele verwaarlozing.

Deze uitgebreide reflectie over wat het Lebensbornprogramma bood, laat toe dat we met de autonomie van mensen niet moeten sollen, omdat we de redenen van hun keuze niet altijd kunnen vatten. Voor een overheid betekent dit dat men vitale beslissingen zoveel als mogelijk aan de betrokkenen kan en moet overlaten. Dat vergt vertrouwen vanwege van die overheid en de samenleving, maar ook vergt dat van mensen zoals u en ik dat we ons proberen een idee te vormen van de stand van zaken op wetenschappelijk vlak, wat voor sommigen dan voldoende zou zijn om tot een geldig besluit te komen. Maar de mens bestaat niet echt, het is altijd een product van onderzoek en reflectie, maar iets, zo schrijft Karl Jaspers, ontsnapt aan onze visie, onze kijk op het wezen mens. Het heeft in het Christendom wel degelijk geleid tot een concept van vrijheid en van zelfbeschikking, maar altijd nog vanuit een heel duidelijk concept van het leven dat niet van ons is, zou zijn, maar aan het hogere gewijd. Dan kan men op de een of andere manier aannemelijk maken dat we abortus niet moeten willen, zonder ons verder om de wensen van de vrouw in kwestie of van de vrouw in het algemeen te bekommeren. Uiteindelijk evenwel is abortus een ultimum remedium voor het geval alle andere opties voor een vrouw als onvoldoende gelden.

Het blijft met name zo dat niet enkel abortus dezer dagen in hoofde van Amerikaanse beleidsmensen, islamitische en joodse voorgangers en uiteraard ook christelijke religies afgewezen worden, maar ook elke vorm van geboortebeperking en verantwoord ouderschap betekent dan niets meer en niets minder dan de kinderzegen aanvaarden, vooral dus voor vrouwen. Het feit dat landen als de RDC, Kameroen of Nigeria zo een snelle bevolkingsaanwas hebben gekend, dat er nooit voldoende economische groei gerealiseerd kan worden, maakt net de noodzaak van verantwoord ouderschap helder.

De Verenigde Naties heeft al in de jaren zestig het probleem van zelfbeschikking en verantwoord ouderschap ter discussie gesteld en dat dossier blijft tot heden enigszins dode letter:

1969: Declaration on social Progress an development adopted by the General Assembly in resolution 2542.
It affirmed the Tehran Proclamation and urged Governments to provide couples not onl the “education” but also the “means necessary to enable them to excercise their right to determine freely and responsibly the number and spacing of their children”
(General Assembly Resolution 2542. U.N. Doc A/7630)

Beste Adelheid, we hadden het er al vroeger over en toch, het blijft altijd confronterend de uitspraken van wereldleiders en religieuze verantwoordelijken  te horen of te lezen die net deze centrale opvatting weigeren onder ogen te zien en domweg blijven betogen dat kinderen krijgen, al te snel en al te zeer in overtal, gegeven de relatieve lage perinataliteit zodat opvoeden, voeden tout court wel al te problematisch kan worden. Daarom moet men de landen verzoeken naar deze resolutie en andere te handelen en ook indien andere middelen niet ter zake meer doen mensen toe te laten abortus als een instrument te overwegen en die keuze ook te laten uitvoeren. Tot 1994 werden hierover teksten geproduceerd door de VN, maar het is niet duidelijk of men nu nog zo hecht aan deze resoluties.

Wat mij betreft kan de discussie over abortus niet los gekoppeld worden van de overwegingen die ten grondslag lagen aan de VN-resoluties, maar zowel in de Islamitische wereld als bij conservatieve christenen is de aandacht verslapt, of liever, men is er meer en gerichter oppositie tegen gaan voeren. Men moet, vanuit het westen wel aandacht hebben voor die bezwaren, maar of men erover kan marchanderen, blijft altijd nog de vraag. Of het Argentijnse Congres er wel aan doet, zoals gebleken is, abortus zo restrictief te blijven bejegenen, zal afhangen van allerlei appreciaties maar als het argument zou zijn dan vrouwen hun rol maar te vervullen hebben en hun lot voor lief te nemen, lijkt me erger dan laakbaar, want er zal geen man sterven in het kraambed. Men zal dus inderdaad de nodige opvoeding moeten geven aan mannen én aan vrouwen, opdat ze zouden begrijpen dat ze hun vruchtbaarheid wel degelijk zelf mogen regelen, met kennis van zaken. Nu goed, het probleem is dat gedegen seksuele opvoeding niet aan de orde is in landen waar het beleid ten aanzien van abortus restrictief blijft. Maar ook zou het zo zijn dat toegang tot voorbehoedsmiddelen, inclusief de pil te weinig aangereikt wordt.

Ten gronde blijkt overigens uit de hele discussie altijd weer, overigens ook al 35 jaar geleden, dat je als man wel kan zeggen dat je ruimdenkend bent, intussen weet je weinig af van het vrouwelijke gevoelsleven. Je kan dus menen dat er een rationele oplossing is, maar hoe weet je dan dat zij er echt mee kan leven, er plezier aan beleeft, aan seksualiteit en aan het samen zijn. Het persoonlijke beleven valt niet altijd goed uit te drukken, maar als zij blij is bij jou te zijn, dan kan het in principe niet fout lopen, maar hoe zeker is zij van de goede afloop? De wetgeving rond abortus werd vaak voorgesteld als een bedreiging van het leven, wetgeving die abortus toestaat onder bepaalde voorwaarden. Jawel, toen koning Boudewijn I stierf bedacht ik mij, de beelden uit Brussel bij het Koninklijk Paleis ziende, dat zovele vrouwen het met hem eens zouden zijn. Maar dat klopte niet helemaal, veel mensen hadden te doen met Bwana ki Toko, maar waren het niet eens geweest met zijn weigering. Mensen, zo bleek, zijn in staat tot complexe afwegingen, waarbij nu eens deze overwegingen doorwegen en dan, bij het sterven van de vorst, andere. Dat zouden tegenstanders van liberalisering van abortus in landen als Argentinië moeten begrijpen. Overigens, zou men ook niet moeten meegeven dat een abortus ook een ingrijpend gebeuren is voor vrouwen? Niet omdat dit ontradend zou werken, al omdat het kan dat een vrouw er achteraf toch onder lijdt.

De mens is een complex wezen, omdat we naast onze wensen, onze verlangens ook angsten kennen en begrijpen dat er meer tussen hemel en aarde dan we kunnen bevroeden. Een reductie maken van een mens tot een rekenmachine doet mensen geen recht, maar menen dat emoties alleen tot “foute” beslissingen  leiden, moet men toch ook wel eens terzijde schuiven. Hoe we de balans kunnen vinden is altijd nog een persoonlijk avontuur, maar de overheid, de “natie in vergadering verenigd”, zoals het parlement gedacht wordt, moet precies niet willen vastleggen wat mensen op dat vlak van persoonlijke ontplooiing moeten aanvatten. Beperkingen over een redelijke termijn, 12 of 14 weken zwangerschap, al dan niet een reflectieperiode, zijn wenselijk om de relatie tussen moeder en foetus, embryo alle kansen te geven, maar als er grote risico’s zich voordoen, dan moeten moeder/ouders en arts kunnen besluiten tot de beste oplossing. Het blijft altijd een zaak van casuïstiek, waar we als buitenstaander niet veel over te zeggen hebben.

Moet abortus dan strafbaar blijven, zoals in de Belgische wetgeving nog steeds geschreven staat? De voorwaarden blijven dezelfde, maar sommigen willen dat bij inbreuken de strafrechter en het OM ex officio kunnen handelen, terwijl in het andere geval er een klacht moet ingediend worden opdat het apparaat in werking mag treden. Nu valt dat doorgaans ver onder de radar van gerecht en politie voor, ook al omdat er nog weinig sociale controle bestaat, al zeker niet in steden. Het gevolg is wel dat mensen vaak in grotere eenzaamheid moeilijke keuzes moeten maken.

Kortom, men kan menen dat abortus fout is, maar is het aan de overheid om mensen te verplichten tot kinderen? Het kan nuttig zijn voor een natie dat er voldoende kinderen geboren worden, maar meer nog dat ze goed opgroeien en niet tot onwetendheid en armoede gedwongen worden of tot het wegvluchten naar betere oorden. Hoe we die heren in het Argentijnse parlement, maar zeer zeker ook in andere landen kunnen overtuigen van de onmenselijke last die men (vaak ongeschoolde) vrouwen oplegt, door hen niet voldoende te vormen om hen de middelen te geven zelf over hun vruchtbaarheid te beschikken, blijft niet enkel een theoretische vraag.

Nu men de universaliteit van de waarden van de Verlichting openlijk in vraag stelt, is zo een reflectie niet overbodig. Maar zonder aandacht voor de culturele context zal men ook niet veel bereiken, zoals Simone Weil in 1974 bewees in het Franse Parlement, waar ze een mannelijk parlement diende te overtuigen van de noodzaak, de oirbaarheid en humaniteit van de wet en daar ook nog eens een keer in slaagde. Maar goed, met de wet alleen is het lot van mensen nog altijd niet verbeterd, want goede vorming over fysiologie, over het beleven ook van seksualiteit en het omgaan met kinderen, het opvoeden en steunen, zijn minstens even noodzakelijk. Het is en blijft  dus noodzakelijk abortus te zien, beste Adelheid, als een ultimum remedium en zoals je onlangs nog vertelde, in samenhang met de vele andere facetten van het rijke vrouwenleven.

Innige groet,

Bart Haers

          Story Of Nigeria's Oldest Prisoner Who Just Clocked 100 Years Inside Enugu Maximum Prison      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Anywhere in the world, 100 years is usually marked with fanfare but not so for Nigeria’s oldest prisoner, Pa Celestine Egbunuche, who clocked 100 last Saturday; August 4, within the confines of Enugu Maximum Prison. The centenarian, who hails from Akokwa in Ideato North area of Imo State, was condemned to death along with his son, Paul and another relation, now 87.

How did this happen?


They were said to have been engaged in a fight over a piece of land and in the process, somebody died. With such fate, Pa Egbunuche has for over 17 years lived in desolation and hopelessness.

But all hope is not lost as a non-governmental organisation, Global Society for Anti-corruption (GSAC) is pushing for his release. GSAC has appealed to the Federal Government and Governor Rochas Okorocha to use their board of mercy and release Egbunuche, his 78 years old relation and son from prison.

Zonal Resource Executive of GSAC, Amaka Nweke commended Chief Judge of Enugu State, Justice Priscilla Emehelu for her recent prison visit where many inmates were granted freedom pleaded with her to look into the case of Pa Egbunuche whom she said their investigation showed might be Africa’s oldest inmate.

According to the NGO, Egbunuche has suffered from diabetes over the years, adding that with his age and failing health, it will be proper to release him to go and possibly die peacefully at home. If eventually released, the organisation would also want the Federal and State Governments to take care of Pa Egbunuche’s rehabilitation.

Experts said that in other jurisdictions, inmates above 65 years are eligible for either parole or state pardon.

Meanwhile, Daily Sun gathered that inmates of Enugu Maximum Prison have not had the luck of receiving Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi to perform the usual granting of amnesty during ceremonial occasions like the Independence Day, Democracy Day and yuletide.

During a recent visit by our reporter, some of them claimed that they had turned a new leaf and appealed to the governor to emulate his counterparts in Anambra, Ebonyi, and Abia by granting them amnesty.

Their cries seemed to have attracted the attention of the chief judge, Emehelu, who during the 2018 jail delivery sessions in the three prisons in the state pardoned about 130 inmates.

Breathe of fresh air 
A breakdown of the beneficiaries showed that 90 inmates were granted pardon at the Enugu Maximum Prison while 22 benefitted at the Nsukka prison. At the conclusion of the exercise in Oji-River Minimum Security Prison, where about 17 inmates were granted pardon, the chief judge urged the released prisoners to, henceforth, desist from crime and lead a reformed life.

She said the exercise was in accordance with Section 1 (a,b) of the Criminal Justice (Release from Custody) Special Provisions Act, Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 2007 and Sections 34 (1), 35 (1) and 36 (5) of the 1999 Constitution of Nigeria (as amended).

Emehelu lamented the congestion in various prisons in the state and called for immediate measures to address deviant behaviour in the society.


“We, judges are mindful of the onerous challenge of prison congestion and have consistently worked with stakeholders in the justice sector to ensure speedy and sustained case flow management.

“It is part of the commitment to effective justice delivery that necessitates our periodic visit to prisons, to provide bail and the release of inmates who have exceeded required prison term,” she said.

The chief judge pledged commitment of the judiciary to ensuring speedy dispensation of justice and expressed optimism that modern prisons would soon be built across the country, as promised by the Minister of Interior, Lt. Gen. Abdulrahman Danbazau (retd).

She applauded the Controller of Prisons in Enugu State, Mr. Ndubuisi Ogbodo, for ensuring that Enugu prisons became a reference point for others while assuring that another session of the exercise would be conducted in December, to further decongest the prisons.

Ogbodo who stated that prison was not punishment but for reformation, appealed to the chief judge for clemency to sick, old and juvenile inmates.
He said inmates recommended for pardon were now reformed and had pledged to desist from any crime that could land them in prison again.

He thanked the chief judge for her cooperation and described as ‘unprecedented’ the number of inmates pardoned during the exercise.

One of the inmates granted amnesty, Ndubuisi Nwabueze, expressed happiness that he would go home after serving two years. He was sentenced in 2016 after being found guilty of attempted murder.

As the lucky ones breathe air of freedom, others like Chukwunonso Nomeh, 38, a condemned inmate who recently made history as the first prisoner in West Africa to bag Master’s Degree and some others urged the authorities to look into their case.

          Why I Dumped PDP For APC - Akpabio Speaks As He Officially Defects With Top Politicians      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Former Senate Minority Leader, Godswill Akpabio gave reasons why he joined the ruling APC as "the need to put all hands on the deck to salvage the situation in the country and not to aggravate it,” adding that “the country is at war… and everyone should put heads together.

I decided to join to emancipate the people and provide succour for the people.

“I decided to join the APC at this time because I am a nationalist. In times like this, everybody should support to bring peace to our dear nation; to stop the killings and ensure employment for our teeming youths.


“With my declaration, uncommon change has come to Akwa Ibom. We believe that Southsouth cannot stand alone on its own.

“We need to collaborate with others. I consulted. What I have done today is to take the people of the Southsouth to the centre.

“Whatever I do is in the interest of of Akwa Ibom. I want to leave a legacy in the national interest."

He also urged his former party to have what he called a reward system.

“With my exit, this is the end of PDP in Niger Delta’’.

He also urged Nigerians to believe in the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.

“Do not be afraid of President Muhammadu Buhari. If your hands are clean. Nigerians have not seen the best of Buhari; so give him the chance.’’

He spoke at a rally at the Ikot Ekpene Township Stadium that joining the APC would enable him have the opportunity to work with others to sweep away poverty and impunity.

He said that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of today had no vision and the leadership is arrogant.

Akpabio said all hands must be on deck to salvage the situation.

“I will like to be a conspirator to conspire to bring peace to Nigeria; I will like to be a conspirator who joins hands to bring food to the table of Nigerians. I will like to be a conspirator who conspires to stop the killings in our country. I will like to be a conspirator who conspires to join hands to bring good employment to our children. I will like to be a conspirator who brings uncommon transformation to the people of Nigeria. I will like to be a conspirator who dualised road from here (Ikot Ekpene) to Aba.

“I do not want to be a conspirator who joins hands to topple government. I do not want to talk about Akwa Ibom State, because I am here on a national platform, but I will like to tell you something today. This is the moment of uncommon change. Uncommon change has come to Akwa Ibom State. Uncommon change has come to Southsouth. Uncommon change has come to Niger Delta.

“Some people are saying that they put a gun on my head. I have a young man here who wrote a lot of petitions against me to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC). Those petitions were sorted out and as I stand before you, I have never been charged to court, because nothing was found wanting in my covenant to Akwa Ibom people.

“The Southsouth as a minority zone cannot stand on its own. The Southsouth as the largest producer of the resources of this country should also partake in the sharing of the resources. What I have done today (yesterday) is to link the Southsouth to the centre. What I have done today (yesterday) is to link Akwa Ibom to the centre."
Akpabio also apologised to all the people he had offended, who were in the APC before he arrived, asking them to kindly forgive him, stressing that whatever he did was in the interest of the good people of Akwa Ibom state.

Brøndby hentede en 2-0-sejr over Subotica i Serbien takket være mål af Dominik Kaiser og Hany Mukhtar.Brøndby var torsdag aften en tur i Serbien for at møde Subotica i den første af to kvalifiktionskampe til Europa League.Brøndby havde skiftet ud på flere positioner i forhold til weekendens kamp mod FC Nordsjælland.I forsvaret havde Alexander Zorniger fundet plads til Benedikt Röcker og Hjörtur Hermannsson, ligesom Anthony Jung tog sig af venstrebacken. Dominik Kaiser erstattede samtidig Hany Mukhtar, og Ante Erceg havde afløst Mikael Uhre i front.Serberne fik kampens to første store tilbud, men Marvin Schwäbe var på plads i de blå-gules mål.Efter en halv time bragte Brøndby sig i front. Josip Radosevic fandt Jung med en glimrende lang aflevering, og i feltet kunne Kaiser sende den i mål til 1-0.Subotica var også giftige i perioder i den anden ende, men Brøndby klarede den til pausen og var foran med en enkelt pind.Hany Mukhtar blev skiftet ind til anden halvlegs start, og det var en god ide. Han skulle blot bruge et minut på banen for at øge føringen til 2-0 på et flot langskud.Målet tog pusten fra Subotica, der havde sværere ved at spille sig frem til chancer herefter. Kort før tid var serberne dog alligevel tæt på efter afslutning fra det lille felt, men igen var Schwäbe på plads med en god redning.Brøndby holdt stand og tager dermed en 2-0-sejr med til Brøndby Stadion i næste uge.
          Flyvende Onuachu bag stensikker FCM-sejr       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
FC Midtjylland vandt torsdag aften en sikker 2-0-udesejr mod The New Saints i Europa League-kvalifikationen. Begge ulvenes mål blev scoret af Paul Onuachu. Torsdag aften skulle FC Midtjylland i aktion i kvalifikationen til Europa League, efter at de danske mestre måtte se sig slået af FC Astana i CL-kvalen. Ulvene skulle en tur til Wales, hvor The New Saints tog imod danskerne på Cardiff City Stadium, hvor Premier League-holdet Cardiff spiller sine hjemmekampe. Til opgøret havde cheftræner Jess Thorup valgt Mikkel Duelund til den centrale midtbane, mens trioen i front bestod af Awer Mabil, Gustav Wikheim og Poul Onuachu, og sidstnævnte skulle vise sig at blive en vigtig mand for FCM.Efter bare ni minutter dukkede den store nigerianer nemlig op midt i feltet og headede Jakob Poulsens hjørnespark i netmaskerne. 1-0 til FC Midtjylland tidligt i kampen. Efter kort tid tegnede der sig et kampbillede, hvor FC Midtjylland var i kontrol og mest på bolden, mens TNS lå og lurede på hurtige kontrastød. Efter 25 minutter var det lige ved at give pote, men walisernes afslutning sad lige på målmand Jesper Hansen, der fik afværget forsøget. I stedet var det minuttet efter FC Midtjylland, der bragte sig yderligere foran. Opskriften var den samme som ved 1-0-målet, nemlig et hjørnespark fra Jakob Poulsen. Denne gang fandt midtbanedirrigenten Bubacarr Sanneh bagerst feltet, og gambianeren headede bolden ind foran, hvor Onuachu igen dukkede op og sendte bolden i kassen. Først halvleg bød ikke på yderligere scoringer, og derfor kunne FC Midtjylland gå glade i omklædningsrummet med udsigten til et fantastisk udgangspunkt inden returopgøret. Kort inde i anden halvleg var Onuachu tæt på at blive hattrickhelt, men angriberens afslutning savnede den sidste præcision for at finde bagsiden af netmaskerne. Efter en times spil blev Simon Ayo Okosun skiftet på banen, og også han var tæt på at score til 3-0, men igen var heldet med hjemmeholdet. Til sidst i kampen blev Paul Onuachu udskiftet for Mayron George, og da der ikke blev scoret mere i kampen, blev Onuachu den helt store helt for FC Midtjylland, der sikrede sig et fremragende udgangspunkt inden returopgøret om en uge. Returkampen mellem FC Midtjylland og The New Saints spilles på MCH Arena torsdag i den kommende uge.

Because "Mele Kalikimaka" is so difficult to pronounce
The left-leaning media is still hyperventilating about Russian interference with our election, going so far in some cases as to declare that we are no longer a free country and that Vladimir "Nice Pecs" Putin has successfully pulled off a massive coup d'etat. Apparently, his evil goal is to destroy us from within by facilitating the appointment of brain surgeons to cabinet positions.

All of which would seem considerably more like a terrifying existential crisis if Barack Obama cared enough to have skipped his annual bajillion-dollar Christmas getaway to the five-star environs of Hawaii. But there he is again, thousands of miles from the Oval Office - golfing, gnawing shave ice, eschewing any traditional symbols of Christmas or Christianity entirely, and (understandably) avoiding contact with family members as much as possible...

It's all the more impressive considering her deep sense of hopelessness.
Frankly, we're so sick of the first family and their wretched excesses that we pulled these cartoons out of the vault and can't really work up any enthusiasm about coming up with fresh ways to disparage them today. We're tired, we detest them, and we just want them gone.

Not that it's a bad start having them on Oahu. Which, by wild coincidence, is what we'll be shouting when they're escorted (hopefully forcefully) out of the White House on January 20th.

BONUS: A RANDOM HOLIDAY THOUGHT...
...to help us fill out the page at least a little more.
Seriously, why isn't PETA all over this?!
ADDITIONAL BONUS: YEP, IT'S MONDAY
Unlike sunny, expensive Oahu, it got darned cold in north Texas last night...and we've discovered that the pipes have frozen in one of the bathrooms. We've now got a heat lamp on the exterior wall, and a battery of space heaters and hair dryers blowing on the interior pipes (the area with the actual blockage can't be reached directly).

There is also a real sense of suspense, wondering if - at any moment - our bathroom faucet will simply return to normal operations...or we'll discover that a ruptured pipe is filling the walls of our home with water just in time for a randomly selected plumber to earn enough money for all of his Christmas shopping. And a Hawaiian vacation.

SO STILTON, HOW'S YOUR OBAMACARE DOING?
Thank you for asking. Healthcare.gov finally conceded my imaginary earning status for 2017 so that I could select another crappy, overpriced HMO plan - which I did.

And I assume all of that went smoothly, because last week I received six - count 'em - six new ID cards from Blue Cross. Three for me, and three for Mrs. Jarlsberg who isn't on the policy anymore.  Then on Saturday, I received two more ID's, both of which are in my name but showing different policy numbers.  So there's at least some chance that I now have 8 insurance policies.

None of which stopped Healthcare.gov from sending me daily reminders that I was not insured and needed to hurry to beat the cutoff deadline. Which they've now extended since the website (for the umpteenth time) failed to keep up with the traffic.

They've also let me know that I can pay my multiple insurance policies by giving them my banking information and letting their crack computers siphon money whenever they feel like it.  I'd sooner hand over my information to a Nigerian prince who wants to share his fortune.

(Noon Update: I swear on all that's Holy that I just got two more ID cards in today's mail.)

ABSTRACT
In an attempt to find out a new class of antimicrobial agents new schiff base ligand of 2-amino 5-nitro thiazole and its copper complex were prepared. The Microwave assisted synthesis was carried out by condensation of 2-amino 5-nitro thiazole and substituted salicyldehyde. The newly synthesized schiff base ligand and its copper complex were tested against representatives of gram-positive (Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus subtilis) and gram- negative bacteria (E. coli, Pseudomonas putida) and fungi (Candida albicans, Aspergillus niger) by disc diffusion method.

Session 3:
Trade Secrets, Courtney Cox, Can the Law Force You to Lie? The Use of Deceptive Precautions to Protect Trade Secrets

Reasonable measures to protect the secret are generally required. Should you have to engage in deception, or deceptive misdirection (answering a related question but not what was asked, or answering partially as if it were fully) to be reasonable?  Lying/misinformation can cause real harms to others, if they rely on your representation to do something, and there are dignitary harms in being lied to/treated as an object.  Concerns about trust: if everyone lies when it’s convenient, then representations become incredible.

Companies do in fact lie to protect trade secrets.  E.g., putting out that security officers are listening at the local bar.  Or putting in a deliberate error in a map to identify copiers.  How I Met Your Mother: to protect the finale, they mislabeled scripts/casting calls; Game of Thrones films fake scripts so the cast doesn’t necessarily know what will be shown.  Cisco found source code distributed (disgruntled employee) and rather than attracting attention via takedown it seems to have posted a bunch of different fake versions; this is designed to wear people out and get them to think it’s all fake.

There’s philosophical debate over how to define a lie. Some people bake into the concept the idea of wrongfulness, but she doesn’t want to do that: she means intentional assertions of fact that aren’t true. A lie can be deceptive, if it imparts the false belief.

Some of these techniques are definitely cheaper than demand letters/hiring a lawyer. Thus they could count as reasonable measures, alone or in combination with techniques.  But: (1) doctrine of unclean hands—you shouldn’t be able to get legal relief based on conduct that is itself inequitable/wrongful, which is often about deception; (2) risk of harm to others; (3) general distaste for misrepresentation; (4) immorality of lying no matter what. If trade secret is the codification of commercial morality, then it shouldn’t include this.

Harm: suppose a screenwriter thinks they’ve been hired to write a finale for Game of Thrones, and they therefore give up lucrative other opportunities. Is this relevant harm?  Should we compare this to other precautions that they should have taken?  You’re allowed to have guard dogs; if the guard dogs are unreasonably vicious, then the remedy is tort law.  Thus, torts should provide the remedy rather than being incorporated into trade secret law.  [Query whether there’s any scenario in which the screenwriter hasn’t contractually waived all rights here.]

Bottom line: yes, there is at least a not insignificant set of deceptive practices that should be okay/not actionably deceptive or unclean hands; there may be a subset that are required.  She would not draw the line at corrective, post-disclosure deception.  Car manufacturers: road tests of a new innovation, protecting from corporate spies with cameras. So they use car disguises: cardboard covering the innovation, or making it look like some other innovation was being tested so that it wouldn’t be properly identified.

Q: gov’t lies all the time, for (they think) good reasons—informants, cooperating witnesses, interrogation. Is there a salient difference b/t gov’t lying and gov’t rewarding lies through policy? Compelled speech considerations: posits that gov’t should never force someone to lie through doctrine even if lying is ok when chosen.  Reactions?

A: There is reason to think gov’t can do what civilians can’t, but that doesn’t cover the whole logical space of actions.  Rewarding might not be enough to compel—you don’t have to claim trade secret protection, but if you want to do so, you have to engage in speech, just as you would to get a professional license of many kinds.

IP and Creativity
Sean Pager, Much Ado About Norms
Issues w/suboptimal norms: if there’s not sufficient communication, people may think norm is popular even though everyone else only goes along b/c they think it’s a norm too—drinking a lot on college campuses, for example.  Became a norm b/c of a vocal minority. Powerful people can also impose norms against the true internal desires of most.  Ellickson’s Shasta farmers are all white men occupying lands stolen from Indians and often exploiting Latino workers.  How seriously should we take these concerns in IP norms?  This is a question worth asking.

One example: People have written about Nollywood, the Nigerian film industry, as a negative IP space. Early on, Nigerian filmmakers used lead time to make money before piracy overtook them; new tech has changed that.  Social norms/marketers guilds have replaced that with a de facto exclusivity norm. That meets the paradigm of social norms solving a gap in IP law, but is it an optimal norm?  He says no. Would be better off with a formal IP system. Guilds often discriminate ethnically, by gender, etc. Filmmakers want a formal system but have been politically blocked by the clout of the marketers—norm-locking.

Chris Sprigman: how important is it to the norms literature whether norms are efficient?  Varies across the literature. Rothman has work on this. Some is descriptive and also attempts to account for why the norms lead to the production of certain types of content and not others. Could categorize this literature in your discussion.

Jennifer Rothman: Lisa Bernstein has some work on this in merchant norms.  Inherent biases in relying on norms based system—pay equity and hiring; informality of the system can reify principles of discrimination. Not well described in the IP context w/r/t these norms.  That would be a meaningful intervention.

Rosenblatt: “good” and “efficient” are not the same thing. I could reasonably be accused of being overoptimistic about norms, but good v. destructive/counterproductive/discriminatory/otherwise suboptimal are different things. Effective governors of behavior, beneficial governors of behavior, good substitutes for law: these are different things from when norms are efficient. 

A: would also add: good/efficient for whom or for what?  [See Glynn Lunney on this Q in IP law generally, not on norms.]

Q: interesting work on architecture—fan fiction sites where the sharing models are designed by women, v. FB where all the creators of the sharing features are men.   [missed the name, want to know it!]

A: link there b/t code as law and norms as law.

Q: identify situations where formal law has replaced norms, or where there is demand to codify norms. Could happen for different reasons: norms might be suboptimal, or somebody lobbies to impose costs on someone else. Transitions are revealing situations.

Andres Sawicki, The Law of Creativity?

Lots of different models of creativity. Law’s traditional model: works are public goods, need incentives.  Categorization: (1) Motivational. Focus on the individual; psychology; motivation for creative behavior. (2) Environmental. Individual behavior isn’t the primary determinant; there’s a lot of serendipity, fortuity, unexpected results, play; what matters is the sociocultural environment in which the individual environment and so we should focus law on opportunities for serendipity.  There’s surface tension, so to speak—the agents operating in these models look very different. Homo economicus is completely unrecognizable in ordinary life; in the creativity models, we have rich portraits of humans operating in recognizable contexts.  There’s also tension in the role of IP law for the models. IP is central to the operation of the model in public goods conception, not so much with the others.  (1) and (2) tend to bash the rational actor’s lack of realism. 

Can we resolve this tension?  Respectable realism, from philosophy of science. There are lots of useful ways to look at a given phenomenon depending on what you’re interested in.  All models are wrong but some are useful, and it’s with that in mind that we should choose our models.

Could also abandon model realism more generally.  Model realism is an important natural sciences issue—are there “really” subatomic particles just because we can make/verify predictions that come from positing their existence?  As legal scholars we don’t need a grand unified theory, or to posit unique differences b/t intrinsic and extrinsic motivation, we just need to know what we want to do. What are we using these models for?  Generating testable predictions is something we want from models.  But we can also make interpretative uses: looking at hypothetical situations.  Models can also be built from the ground up, used as slightly more abstract representations of reality in order to organize our thinking/our world—that’s going on w/some of the models in the literature/critique of public goods model.  There’s no right way to do this.

Jeremy Sheff: Epistemological roots of those philosophical schools matter—American pragmatists, for example. When rubber hits road on doctrine, will intersect w/Legal Realism in important way b/c of the epistemological commitments in philosophy of science and how they map to Legal Realism.

A: His point is that we’re not there yet. Entirely possible that all these models and maybe more will provide useful insights. [Some pluralism about realism?  That would be a fantastic title, I think.]

Sheff: that’s a very pragmatist idea, but there are limits on how far a pragmatist take on epistemology can take you. If it’s about how our community defines truth, then the interest shifts to the definition of our community.

Christopher Sprigman, The Second Digital Disruption: Algorithms & Authorship in the Adult Entertainment Industry

First digital disruption: rise of content distribution on the internet—Napster disrupted the music industry. Now, with porn, content builds brands to sell other stuff: just as with Amazon, its video content is an inducement to get people to sign up for Prime.

Mindgeek started w/ rise of YouTube: pornographic user-uploaded videos. Destroyed the mom & pop outlets. Large financial backing enabled Mindgeek to use piracy to drive down the value of the mom & pop outlets and then buy them up.  Camming has stabilized as an experience good, hard to knock off—like monetizing live music performances.  There’s an enormous custom market now.

But the next thing that happens is Mindgeek’s dominance. Now that they control so much production and distribution, user data comes back to them, allowing them to kick off the second digital disruption centered on data-driven creation, if this is a harbinger of what is coming from Netflix and Spotify and Amazon: to shape the way content is presented and even made.  Netflix made House of Cards because their data told them that a group of consumers they wanted to court would like a BBC-like political show and would like Kevin Spacey.  What picture you see when you see a tile for The Crown is based on your responses to past ads for shows. Amazon is following in Netflix’s wake, greenlighting content and then strangling it in response to data. Spotify is interested in computer generated music.

Data changes the risk of failure. More data: maybe able to create fewer risks.  Can also indirectly address the risk of success (which is piracy).  Entities that engage in data driven creation tend to be big and to have an all you can eat model, which makes piracy less important. We might be able to have less copyright and get the same investment incentives because the risk of failure is less (so the incentive needs to be less) and the risk of piracy is also less.

Moral intuitions about copyright: labor theories.  Consumer preferences and choices might start to be understood as part of the contribution to the “work” that is produced. One model: The creator brings something to humanity, like Prometheus bringing fire: that myth is hard to sustain with data driven creativity. The creator is watching the watched, who are then watching their reflections.

Sheff: I should hate this trend, but not sure about what’s the problem.  (A: Feels manipulative.) Even if it is in this iterative way, you still need experiments: you need an A and a B for your A/B testing.  You don’t reach an equilibrium. Data driven model can’t seem to capture that.

A: lots of research tries to pin this down. Newness plays relatively modest role—we tend to like things that are a little bit new but not a lot. Not that different from what we actually like, but we just tell ourselves a story about what we like that doesn’t match with our real enjoyment.  He thinks of fashion: often the constant churning of the same stuff. Hard to make judgments about whether fashion is more or less creative than other fields. These Qs are above his pay grade.

[Jon Ronson’s The Butterfly Effect influenced my thinking here. Camgirls and customs are the opposite of algorithms: this story you’re telling is not really about algorithmic creation but about the immiseration of the middle class, where Mindgeek makes all the money and we’re back to cottage industry for everyone else.  Note that this content is mostly functional, and the average stay on the site is ten minutes; they don’t think they can give guys more orgasms or longer ones, do they?  So what is the data being used to shape content for? There are good reasons rooted in the structure and incentives of the firm why they might want to use the algorithms to direct the creation of porn and tell people that they are making better porn as a result, but it’s not obvious why this tells us about creating things that have more degrees of freedom/some aim other than producing an orgasm.  So, for example, I’m pretty sure a lot of big companies would prefer AI performers instead of cattle/actors [who might, you know, end up being Kevin Spacey]. But I also have a strong sense that AI performers won’t work for some significant subset of porn consumers, to whom it is important that a woman do something for them. I could be wrong about that, though.

Relatedly: Cui bono: and what is the relationship of who benefits to the content of what is produced? When I was growing up guys didn’t expect to come on our faces, and at least the reporting tells me that things have changed.

A: [partial] Interpretive qs are beyond my pay grade. [But if you’re telling us to draw conclusions about creativity from this example, that’s what you’re getting paid for.  We are privileged white people and some topics might not be our topics to publicize and pioneer the discussion on.] The paper is about a phenomenon of which the adult industry is the best exemplar, but Netflix and Spotify are part of the story. Camming and customs are happening and have nothing to do with data. We’re trying to show you where Mindgeek came from and our fundamental story about how the use of data may transform industries [but if you’re only telling half the story about what the industry is, then is that a useful account? It seems a lot like talking about work without talking about domestic, unpaid labor].

Rosenblatt: consider the things toddlers like to watch on YouTube—it’s not what you think. Normatively may be unclear/different.

Lemley: old enough to remember when cable was going to replace TV with ads b/c of the new business model.  In fact, it just gets layered on top of the existing revenue generation model. Fine w/normative suggestion that we should be fine w/piracy but as a practical matter, the business model is likely to be “here’s a new way to make money.” [Relatedly, dialing down on copyright dials down the only lever that the people in cottage industry production may have, which has serious distributional consequences.]

A: risk of failure going down changes incentive structure, and risk of success going down has indirect effects, suggesting recalibration could be appropriate.

Lemley: differential benefits for big producers which are the only ones who can do this at the necessary scale.  Small producers lose out.

A: this is what people accuse Mindgeek of having done—used piracy to drive down value of companies they acquired. TW/AT&T merger: TW made argument that they needed to be able to hook up to digital distribution in order to target ads/shape content and avoid competitive disadvantage w/Amazon and Netflix; the judge totally bought it.  Data now becoming more salient in creation of content: that’s a fundamental story. Whether this is good or bad is a new set of questions. Sounds like new issues of platform dominance, as w/FB.  That may be indeed what we’re facing. May make sense to oppose it and do something about it but we have to identify it first.

Immiserating the middle class: FastCompany CEO wants lots of middle class musicians, not people earning millions a year.  Self-serving vision but not normatively worse than opposite. Artists do benefit in surprising ways: bands on tour use Spotify data not only to decide where to tour but also what songs to play in what cities. In equilibrium, we should expect artists to do better at identifying and finding their audiences.

          Verkauft Bayern die falschen Spieler?       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Es war der 9. April 2016. Pep Guardiola hatte genug gesehen. Der Trainer des FC Bayern nahm Arturo Vidal vom Feld. Nahe am Platzverweis. Nach 27 (!) Minuten.

Der Chilene hatte seinem Ruf als Rüpel wieder alle Ehre gemacht - dabei ist Vidal weit mehr als ein stumpfer Treter.

"Einer der Typen, die du in deinem Team haben willst, aber nicht als Gegner. Du bist eine wahre Persönlichkeit, ein Anführer, ein Krieger. Ich werde dich vermissen, Arturo", beschrieb Jerome Boateng treffend die Merkmale des Mittelfeldspielers.

Bayern-Teamkollegen kämpfen um Boateng

Jener Boateng, der die Münchner in diesem Sommer ebenfalls verlassen konnte. Zwar sagte der Weltmeister Manchester United ab, nach einem Bericht der Bild sollte am Donnerstag aber ein Treffen zwischen Boatengs Manger Christian Nerlinger und PSG-Sportdirektor Antero Henrique stattfinden. Der DFB-Innenverteidiger ist alles andere als abgeneigt, künftig in Paris unter Trainer Thomas Tuchel zu spielen - auch wenn das seine Teamkollegen nicht wahrhaben wollen.

"Es ist wichtig, dass wir außer Arturo niemanden mehr verkaufen. Das Team muss zusammenbleiben, dann können wir erfolgreich sein. Wir wollen einen Titel mehr als letzte Saison. Jerome gehört für mich zu den besten Innenverteidigern der Welt. Er ist einfach sehr, sehr wichtig für die Mannschaft", sagte Arjen Robben am Donnerstag im Trainingslager in Rottach-Egern.

Ganz ähnlich charakterisiert Franck Ribery den abgewanderten Vidal: "Arturo war ein richtig großer Spieler und auch eine gute Person. Er war immer positiv und hat auch auf dem Platz viel Spaß gebracht."

Weltklasse gepaart mit Führungsqualitäten also. Man sollte meinen, kein Team würde freiwillig darauf verzichten. Auch Trainer Niko Kovac würde gerne weiter mit Boateng arbeiten. Verkauft Bayern etwa die falschen Spieler?

Das denkt Hitzfeld über Boateng und Vidal

"Eine spannende Frage, die man aber noch nicht final beantworten kann. Niko Kovac wird aber ein klares Konzept haben", sagt Trainer-Legende Ottmar Hitzfeld im Gespräch mit SPORT1.

"Bayern ist ein Verein mit klaren Richtlinien und Vorstellungen. Wenn sie einen Spieler unbedingt halten wollen, dann behalten sie ihn auch. Dafür haben sie die Mittel."

Heißt im Umkehrschluss: Wenn ein Spieler gehen soll, geht er - Status hin oder her.

Fakt ist aber, dass die Bayern mit Vidal und Boateng (sofern er tatsächlich wechselt) gleich zwei Spieler Marke "Anführer" abgeben würden.

Bayern: Risiko in der Innenverteidigung

Boateng hat diese Rolle in der Viererkette der Bayern inne. Zusammen mit Mats Hummels ist er der Chef in der Innenverteidigung und Wortführer im Team.

Dazu können Boatengs Diagonalbälle in die Offensive entscheidende Momente kreieren.

Im Falle eines Abgangs des Nationalspielers müsste Hummels eine noch dominantere Rolle einnehmen. Niklas Süle hat in seiner ersten Saison überzeugt, ist aber ein weit ruhigerer Vertreter als Boateng.

Sollte einer der beiden ausfallen, stünden in David Alaba und Javi Martinez zwar Alternativen zur Verfügung. Deren Qualitäten werden jedoch auf anderen Positionen benötigt. Bleibt noch der 18 Jahre alte Nachwuchsspieler Lars Lukas Mai, der bislang lediglich zwei Bundesliga-Einsätze zu verzeichnen hat.

Vidal als Typ einzigartig

Auch Vidal hinterlässt eine Lücke. Der Chilene scheut keinen Zweikampf, geht dahin, wo es wehtut und verrichtet die Schatten-Arbeit für die offensiven Feingeister.

Im Mittelfeld des Rekordmeisters sucht man vergebens nach einem ähnlichen Spieler-Typen. Javi Martinez ist auf der Sechs zwar ein zweikampfstarker Abräumer, aber niemand, der das Spiel an sich reißt.

Hitzfeld sieht darin allerdings kein Problem und gibt zu bedenken, dass sich das Anforderungsprofil geändert hat. "Man sucht immer mehr nach spielerischen Lösungen. Der technische Aspekt steht heute im Vordergrund, früher war es auch die Härte", sagt der 69-Jährige.

Auch deshalb glaubt der Ex-Bayern-Trainer daran, dass es die junge Garde des Rekordmeisters richten kann.

Bayern arbeitet am Umbruch

Seit Hasan Salihamidzic das Amt des Sportdirektors übernommen hat, treibt er den Umbruch im Kader voran. Teure Stars sind nicht die erste Prämisse, vielmehr sollen Talente gefördert werden.

Zahlreiche Jugendspieler bekamen in den letzten Wochen Profiverträge. Im Gegensatz zu den vergangenen Jahren sollen sie auch Chancen bekommen. Dazu kommen junge Hoffnungsträger wie Leon Goretzka, Corentin Tolisso oder Renato Sanches.

Nach Vidals Abgang haben sie nun einen Spieler weniger vor der Nase. Der "Krieger" ist 31 Jahre alt, sein Körper von vielen Profijahren geschunden.

Auch Boateng war immer wieder verletzt. Mit einem Gehalt von rund 14 Millionen Euro zählt er zudem zu den Topverdienern und könnte bis zu 60 Millionen Euro in die Kasse spülen.

Bayerns Risiko könnte sich auszahlen

Mit den möglichen Verkäufen der beiden Anführer gehen die Bayern kurzfristig ein - vor allem in der Abwehr - großes Risiko ein.

Allerdings bietet sich der Zukunft der Bayern, sprich Süle, Goretzka oder auch Joshua Kimmich frühzeitig die Chance, in Führungsrollen auf und außerhalb des Platzes hineinzuwachsen. Die neuen Anführer stehen in den Startlöchern.

          What we're reading: The privatization of water, from Flint to Lagos      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The government of Lagos, Nigeria is considering allowing Veolia, a French-owned water company currently being sued for its role in the Flint water crisis, to take control of almost two-thirds of the city's crumbling water infrastructure, writes Monica Mark for BuzzFeed News.

Why it matters: With 21 million inhabitants, 70% of whom do not have access to "drinkable, piped water," Lagos is Africa's most populous city and an embodiment of how modern-day governments have turned to privatization as a means of solving their water shortage crises — while pocketing some extra cash in the process.


The backdrop: Veolia was hired by the city of Flint in February 2015 as a water quality consultant. According to Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette, whose office filed a lawsuit against Veolia, the company was "hired to do a job and failed miserably."

  • "Veolia filed an interim report on Feb. 18 of 2015 that completely misrepresented the quality of the Flint water. ... Veolia stated that the water, quote, was safe. Veolia also callously and fraudulently dismissed medical and health concerns by stating that, quote, some people may be sensitive to any water."
  • Schuette adds that, in March 2015, Veolia recommended that Flint add a chemical called ferric chloride to the water supply, which ultimately led to further corrosion of the pipes and "made a bad situation worse."

In Lagos, the state-run water company delivers 220 million gallons of water per day, only a quarter of what is needed.

  • When the water runs out, "citizens turn to private water hawkers and water trucks, bore their own wells, or use polluted rivers and streams."
  • That's why enlisting private providers makes sense in theory, Mark writes, as the government can "offload the huge costs of repairing infrastructure onto companies with deeper pockets and technical know-how."
  • But that also requires blind faith that the company will be "a good actor" and not structure their operations around squeezing every ounce of profit they can out of the city's residents.

The big picture: The privatization of water supplies dates back to the 1990s, when the CEO of Nestle dismissed the idea of water as a public right as "extreme." In Nigeria, which already has one of the world's highest child death rates due to water-borne illness, citizens fear they'll have to pay a huge price for a resource that much of the world takes for granted.

“They [Veolia] have a history of poisoning black communities in the US and they should not be poisoning the largest African city on the continent.”
Nayyirah Shariff, an activist campaigning in Flint

My sister, nice right up. However, I would not encourage our people to make Morocco their holiday destination for 2 main reasons and I speak from experience. 1. When we go to Morocco, which I don't doubt is a picturesque destination, all we are doing is enriching Morocco's economy, as we will pay for hotel bills, transport, feeding etc. I would suggest we invest in our own Tourist infrastructure, Nigeria has so many places to offer and what is good is that we are investing the money in our local economy and elevating our own people out of poverty instead of Moroccans whom I respect also. 2. Morocco has a record of prejudice against people of Sub-Saharan African heritage en-route to Europe or those who have been stranded. We have records and first-hand experience of this, they are exploited, raped and kidnapped. I have included links below to show evidence and proof, I was involved in the relocation of Nigerians back from Morocco en-route to Cueta/Melila, I don't blame our people for wanting to leave for greener pastures, if you hear their tales it will sadden you, what is so worrying too was the attitude of the Moroccan officials we spoke to. I work with Europeans and I can tell you too that if they were faced with poverty, they too will emigrate, look at the history of the USA, Canada, White South Africa/ Australia for example, Nigeria is our home, look even the US is working on ways to reduce legal paperwork for Legal Immigrants. We now have no choice than to see our future in our own ancestral homeland, Nigeria. https://reliefweb.int/report/morocco/refugees-or-migrants-difficulties-west-africans-morocco https://www.vice.com/en_uk/article/dpww9x/are-moroccan-gangsters-being-paid-to-beat-up-african-migrants-803

Okay lets analyze the stakes for PDP in 2019: PDP needs a consensus candidate to stand a chance against Buhari. Here are the leading candidates: Atiku Abubakar is 73 years, will be 78 in 2023, meaning this is his last chance of becoming the president of Nigeria-his pursuit since SDP days in 1993. How would you explain to this kind person to forgo his ambition? Tambuwal would be leaving his governorship post, while swimming against the tides in his State, which dominantly APC to purse his presidential ambition he has been nursing 2015, and you want him to agree to this consensus nonsense? Kwakwanso who is egoist, who believes and has been singing to whoever cares, that he is the only one capable of defeating Buhari..and you want him to take anything less? Sule Lamido, who believes he is the anointed candidate of Obasanjo, who agree to cede his right to another person? PDP have gathered some useless and selfish ambitious politicians that will orchestrate their own doom. As for Moghalu, Durotoye, Sowore and co, they will make an impact but they do not have the political mileage, capaital, finances and foot soldiers to upstage PMB. It is an unfortunate reality, we would be complaining for another 4 years.

IPOB SHUNS OHANEZE AND VOWS ON "NO REFERENDUM NO ELECTION"

IPOB press release
9/07/2018

Following the inability of Ohaneze Ndigbo and South East governors to de-proscribe the activities of IPOB in line with the stated objectives of the Prof. Ben Nwabueze convened peace initiative, the leadership of IPOB hereby suspend, with immediate effect, any future contact or participation in meetings involving Ohaneze Ndigbo leadership or South East governors. The ceasefire announced as a gesture of goodwill after the first Enugu meeting is now officially revoked with no hope of future reinstatement.

Mindful of posterity and our deep respect for Prof. Nwabueze, who personally pleaded that we suspend all negative comments and verbal attacks against Ohaneze Ndigbo. We duly obliged by announcing a binding cessation of all hostilities against corrupt Igbo leaders despite the fact they knowingly and actively connived with Fulani overlords to kill IPOB activists, invade the home of our leader with the intention to kill him out of petty jealousy over his popularity and acceptance by the people. That our leader and his parents are still missing is a direct consequence of the connivance of Igbo leaders with their Fulani masters to destroy the agitation for Biafra.

IPOB towed this path of peaceful dialogue because of our deep respect for our more honourable and truthful elders whose wise counsel compelled us to give peace a chance. What has transpired over the past two months, culminating in the failed meeting of the 8th of August 2018 in Enugu, have clearly demonstrated the unwillingness of Ohaneze Ndigbo and South East governors to breakaway from their slavish master-servant relationship with the Fulani caliphate. These unrepentant collaborators and instigators of Operation Python Dance abused the privilege IPOB ceasefire afforded them by seeking to turn the meeting into an endorsement of an Igbo candidate for PDP vice presidential slot in the coming 2019 elections. Under such circumstance, we felt the meeting had lost its purpose hence the need for us to pull out of any talks which consequently brought the entire process to an end.

As a result of these meetings, any lingering doubt that Ohaneze Ndigbo, South East governors and some Abuja based political jobbers instigated Operation Python Dance, has been dispelled by their inability to lift the proscription they themselves imposed on IPOB. Fulani governors  of the north never proscribed murderous Boko Haram or Fulani terror herdsmen but Igbo governors and politicians hastily proscribed the only movement, IPOB, fighting for the masses because they want to continue enjoying Abuja patronage. As the masses continue to wallow in abject poverty and oppression, these Igbo sell-out leaders, their families and cronies will continue to live large courtesy of their all powerful Fulani masters who can make or break them.

Having dutifully attended three meetings in the past 7 weeks with nothing to show for it, these collaborators and traitors have become more emboldened in their subterfuge to the extent of boasting to observers sent by Aso Rock to the Enugu meeting of the 8th of August that IPOB has been thoroughly weakened and reduced to begging to be de-proscribed.

Sadly, some of the attendees of the shameful emergency Igbo elders meeting convened to endorse Operation Python Dance at Nike Lake Resort a day after the deadly invasion of Afaraukwu by Nigerian soldiers, were also present at the Enugu meeting. In due course we shall hold them accountable for their actions. They lacked the courage then to issue a statement condemning Operation Python Dance and they still do so till today because they were all in the know or actively involved in the planning of the massacre of their own people because of money. 

It has dawned on the worldwide family of IPOB that this well intended peaceful dialogue, from inception, was a fraud, a charade and political subterfuge designed to get IPOB to participate in 2019 elections and nothing more. Ohaneze Ndigbo and their allies in Abuja saw it as an opportunity to prove to their northern Fulani controllers that they are still in charge of the South East. Nothing could be further from the truth. IPOB is the people and the people is IPOB.

This game plan of seeking to subdue IPOB through a series of endless and meaningless meetings in the name of forging a common front or lasting peace, is dead on arrival. IPOB will no longer participate in any meeting or dialogue involving Ohaneze Ndigbo. They mistook our magnanimity for weakness. That unfortunately, is the greatest mistake they would ever make in their lives.

This bunch will go down as the worst set of leaders in the history of the Igbo race. For 48 years they have been actively involved in trading the future of their children and unborn generations for peanuts. Under their stewardship, nothing worthwhile has been accomplished for the masses since after the war. They are ravenous, predatory and devoid of conscience. We gave them an opportunity to redeem themselves but they failed woefully. This generation of IPOB and history shall judge them very harshly.

Henceforth, anybody seeking to deal with IPOB mustcontact our world headquarters in Germany where their enquiry will be directed to the appropriate quarters. We would no longer recognise any third party involvement. This will ensure we avoid a repeat of what just transpired with this failed dialogue with Ohaneze Ndigbo.

We wish to thank Prof. Nwabueze immensely for all his efforts and to convey our deep appreciation, regard and respect for him. We also urge him to hold tenaciously to his publicly stated stance that de-proscription of IPOB and the whereabouts of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu  is a prerequisite for any peaceful  settlement. IPOB hereby reinstate it's avowed commitment to conduct a referendum as soon as possible.

THE ONGOING UGLY TREND IN RIVERS STATE CONCERNING THE "MEN ON APRON"


Godswill Leeleebari Gabriel
Reporting For Family Writers Press

Recent developments in Rivers State, tends to unsettle the existing relative peace and tranquility within this part of Biafraland. Sadly, sworn enemies of the people are bent on stirring up the "hornet nest" .

This time around, it is no longer Islamic terrorism, militancy, cultism, armed robbery or kidnapping related issues but social/economic terrorism orchestrated by "Men On Apron" who claim to be traffic agents. Despite the prevalent economic strangulation presently being driven by political gladiators and Northern Arewa hooligans that have gravely boxed the geographical entity called Nigeria into an irredeemable comatose and nocturnal dilemma, some gullible and misguided individuals are shamelessly conniving with the Islamic oppressors to inflict more pains and injuries on the already overburdened Biafrans.

It remains factually evidential, to point out the extreme difficulty the less privileged on the street has, to afford even a square meal daily not to mention handling additional economic burden.

This crop of Apron Wearers go about within Port Harcourt (Igweocha), hijacking vehicles and extorting huge amounts of money from motorists who park by, to pick up necessary items from shops and other sale points. Some of the victims of these opportunistic hooligans who are masquerading as traffic officials, told Family Writers Press Correspondent that varying sums of money ranging from twenty thousand Naira (N20,000) and above, were occasionally expended to reclaim their impounded vehicles.

Further investigations prove that the trend has seriously and negatively affected the business fortunes of the products sellers as customers no longer stop by for patronage. Consequently, shop owners in the city of Port Harcourt decry low turnovers due to the unholy activities of these apron wearing men. These so-called traffic officials are never conspicuously sighted at any junction to ensure free flow of traffic but rather, criminally major on impoundment of vehicles indiscriminately, within the Port Harcourt metropolis. Quite a number of task force operatives have before now, emerged with diverse uniforms, who most often move around in company of armed Nigeria Police and Civil Defense personnel, to harass and hoodwink innocent citizens.

The Rivers State Government should therefore expedite action to curb the excesses of these hooligans whose actions can trigger off crisis in the State. The ugly resultant effect of attached to hawkish antecedents of these apron wearing men should proactively be stemmed. It should not be unleashed on the already dehumanized, overburdened and suffocating masses. If such traffic operatives must be allowed, the government should adequately orientate them on the best applicable traffic-friendly and civil related approaches. There should be spirited sensitization of the public about the operational principles of the new traffic agency.

While we fight to extricate ourselves from the heightened shackles of slavery in Nigeria, we must vehemently resist additional oppressive antics of few opportunists who find themselves in positions of whatever government related services.

Biafra remains the only antidote to the myriads of evil and maladministration bedevilling this British enterprise called Nigeria.

FAILED AND EXPIRED NIGERIAN STATE ON THE HIGH SPEED TO RWANDA (Part 2)


By Obulose Chidiebere N.
For: Family Writers Press.

The first step in the preparation is to classify the potential victims as ‘them’ and the potential perpetrators as ‘we’. The set up is the classic ‘we’ versus ‘them’. The line could be drawn along ethnicity, religion, race, and even class. The ‘them’ are next given a symbol. They are discriminated against and then, dehumanized.

In effect, part of the preparation for genocide is to induce hate for the targeted group through vile simplification of complex human issues. For instance, if some members of a group are mafia leaders, the problem is law and order; and law enforcement will do well to treat people as individuals and hold them accountable for falling afoul of the law. It is not something that demands the generalization of the group in question. A good example is the mafia problem in America in the 50s, 60s and 70s. Though most mafia leaders were of Italian descent, America did not tag every Italian-American a mafia. In fact, one of the people that brought the mafia in New York City to its knees was an Italian-American prosecutor named Rudy Giuliani.
The final stage of genocide according to George H. Stanton is denial. He said that it is an indication that future genocides are going to happen.

Nigeria is well known in the area of conflicts and wars. It has a long history of killings and massacres that fit perfectly well into this genocidal model. And Nigeria has done everything to deny it which means future genocides are going to happen. Instead of acknowledging killings of the past, Nigeria blames the victims. And those who committed those atrocities rather than being arrested and protected, are rewarded with jobs and higher positions in government to continue perpetuating more evil in the nation.

According to the US’ report on human rights violations in Nigeria 2018 they said “Impunity remained widespread at all levels of government. The government did not adequately investigate or prosecute most of the major outstanding allegations of human rights violations by the security forces or the majority of cases of police or military extortion or other abuse of power.”

ALSO READ: FAILED AND EXPIRED NIGERIA ON THE HIGH SPEED TO RWANDA (Part 1)

In spite of all these, the impunity rolling over Buhari/APC government are like a snowball, violations of court orders, killings, raping women and girls, continuous slaughtering of farmers and sacking of communities in Benue, Taraba, Enugu, Plateau and other parts of Nigeria by Buhari kinsmen, Fulani herdsmen, supervised by Nigerian military, Police, DSS etc. Yet, Buhari shamelessly went to Togo for meeting of 53rd ordinary session of the Authority of Heads of States and Government of the ECOWAS to advice African leaders to respect rule of law, and refused to understand that charity they say begins at home. He said that Nigeria is a country that upholds democracy, and is against human right violations. The President didn't even stop his hypocrisy there, he went ahead and urged other African leaders to respect democracy, equity, fairness and justice, what a hypocrisy!

While the president was speaking in Lome yesterday, 8 out of 30 lawmakers in Benue moved to impeach the Governor. While Buhari climbed the podium to speak yesterday, the deputy Governor of Imo State was impeached, after Imo state lawmakers went against a court order, restraining the lawmakers and the state's judiciary from carrying out any impeachment against him.  What was really shocking was that, the 8 lawmakers of Benue State house assembly were protected heavily and aided by armed security men to carry out that impunity; and the remaining 22 were chased away by security men like common criminals.

Buhari was speaking about respecting democracy and the rule of law in Togo, while Sambo Dasuki and El-Zazakay, Shittes leader are languishing in detention despite the several courts of competent jurisdiction that has ruled for him to be released.

What about many members of IPOB that have been killed and many others are still illegally being detained without trial since since 2015 he assumed office, simply because they are asking for their freedom. May be Buhari that went to Togo is not the one that rules Nigeria; that is to tell you that the voice is the voice of Jacob while the hand was that of Esau. it is either Jubril from Sudan is the one ruling Nigeria or otherwise But if really Buhari is the one that spoke at ECOWAS meeting in Togo, he should have known that rule of law, equity fairness and justice is far away from Nigeria. He should have also known that judiciary is dead and expired and the executive has assumed the position of both the executive and the judiciary. He should have known that the Fulanis are killing people on daily basis and taken over their ancestral lands, while the Federal Government and the security agencies are protecting them. This should tell you the kind of people in ECOWAS, this is a clear evidence that Africa is daft.
If there is sanity in ECOWAS, the likes of Muhammadu Buhari, Paul Biya of Cameroon supposed to be languishing in jail for their atrocities against their citizens and the people of Africa.

My fellow Biafrans, it is time we learn our lessons and go out of this shithole to build our land, the land of the rising sun, Biafra.

SELF-DETERMINATION: REQUIRED GLOBAL LEGAL FRAMEWORK FOR NATIONS' INDEPENDENCE AND ASSOCIATED HUMAN TRAGEDY


Written by Mazi Onyebuchi Eze
For Family Writers Press

Irrefutable biblical history affirms the fulfillment of the law in Christ Jesus.  All laws were supposedly made for humanity and not vice versa. This was a concise response given against incriminating evidences tendered against Him by the proponents of the law, Pharisees and Sadducees on the issues bordering on the contravention of the laws of Shabbat. Jesus was seen healing the sick and doing other "love works" (miracles) on the said Shabbat, which prompted His response to the people that thronged around Him, seeking definitive clarifications.

The stone-aged, crude International protocols that even up to this present age, are breeding impunity and oppression, as enshrined in the territorial integrity cum sovereignty of nations, need to be wholesomely repealed. They provide covering for tyrants and oppressors of humanity all over the world. The continent of Africa is houses the offenders in this malady as the operational laws are inherently in sharp contrast to the above stated analogy of Christ regarding laws and legal instruments.

It is unfortunate to point out here that President Donald Trump of the United States of America, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyaho of the nation of Israel, President Vladimir Putin of Russia and President Emmanuel Macron of France seem gravely handicapped by these archaic and nefarious international laws of sovereign nations, in taking necessary actions, as the cries and groans of humanity are incessantly reverberating the world over. Sadly, people are daily being sacrificed on the altar of sovereignty of nations to service the obscene interests instead of such sovereignties serving as models of protection to the people.

The above mentioned global leaders by all standards, detest oppression, dehumanization and enslavement of fellow human beings as often being perpetrated by regimes of atrocities in different countries, with the African continent taking the lead. Viable actions against these spate of human abuses are being resisted by the devilish international instruments of territorial integrity of nations which stipulated that they must be respected. Through this flagrant disdain for the plights of humanity by upholding these obnoxious international laws to the detriment of the oppressed indigenous people spread across the world, it becomes necessary therefore to conclude that "THE INTERNATIONAL LEGAL INSTRUMENTS OF SOVEREIGNTY OF NATIONS HAVE NOW BECOME THE GREATEST TRAGEDY OF HUMANITY", instead of protecting the people.

What remains baffling however, is why are the international laws accorded supremacy at the neglect of other laws? Why are the laws guiding the sovereignty of nations even when outdated and offensive, appear sacrosanct and irrefutable, and yet the global leaders helplessly watch tyrannical Heads of Governments, under the cover and protection of the sovereign status of nations to commit atrocious impunity against their people? Why will such astute world leaders like Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin, Benjamin Netanyaho and Emmanuel Macron who respect the sovereignty of a country in the mold of Nigeria, wouldn't courageously exert the required pressure on the leaders of the governments of Nigeria, Cameroon and Spain to respect the emphatically stipulated international laws guiding self-determination and protection of human rights? These are costly questions begging for answers  which these frontline world leaders must not shy away from.

Beneath are three definite international laws that must be respected and clinically upheld by these leaders in synergy.

* International laws protecting human rights abuses by state actors and authorities of nations.

* International laws guiding self-determination for all indigenous people of the world.

International laws of sovereignty of nations for all sovereign nations of the world.

These are salient and consolidated international laws which equally deserve complete respect of Heads of States and Parliaments across the nations. It is callous and out of fashion for sovereign nations whose Heads of States blatantly disobey such laws on human rights protection and self-determination like what obtains in Nigeria, Cameroon and Spain, and yet be enjoying the luxury of dividends from other international laws standing in sequence of the package.

President Donald Trump, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyaho, President Vladimir Putin and President Emmanuel Macron are necessarily obliged to question the credibility of Nigeria, Cameroon and Spain behind their enjoyment of the benefits of international laws of  sovereignty of nations while disrespectfully making mockery of other inclusive international laws and protocols governing self-determination and human rights protection. The Nigerian government is presently and steadily killing and victimising Biafrans in their numbers for peacefully agitating for their freedom. Cameroon government is equally and brazenly massacring helpless Ambazonians of Southern Cameroon for daring to demand for their independence. The Spanish government which has carefully avoided wasting human lives so far, is continually suppressing the people of Catalonia with tyrannical policies. The season has now dawned to demand from the United Nations, their  plan of action in strongly enforcing these laws in question, alongside others clearly spelt out.

Tyranny, human rights abuses and oppression in whatever shape, meted out against humanity, are exceptionally detestable and the governments of Nigeria, Cameroon and Spain must be made to respect the internationally stipulated laws on human rights and self-determination as the three countries are equally enjoying the benefits derivable from the laws guiding the sovereignty of nations. The international community must instantly though, make regimes to loose the pleasure of placing the sovereignty of nations above the wish, interest and protection of the people. Doing otherwise or servicing the status quo, amounts to heightened wickedness instituted tragedy. The international treaties put in place by the global community should of course, be made beneficial to all citizens within sovereign nations and contrary acts of suppression against genuine desires of the indigenous people groups must be criminalised. The indigenous peoples within the sovereign nations of Biafra, Ambazonia and Catalonia must be jealously protected against all tyrannical waves and decimation policies of the occupational governments in their respective regions. Sovereignty of nations must not be detrimental to humanity as Heads of States hide under such inherent luxury to perpetrate hostilities against the indigenous land owners especially in the African continent.

Küche ohne Plastik - Plastikfreie Küche ohne Müll

Küche ohne Plastik – 17 Ideen für die plastikfreie Küche

 

Christoph 31. August 2017 CareElite Blog, Plastikfrei leben 10 Comments

Die Küche ohne Plastik auszustatten, ist einfacher als du glaubst. Verzichte in der Küche auf so viel Plastik(-müll) wie nur möglich. Ob bei den Lebensmitteln selbst, als auch bei den Küchenhelfern, wie Kochlöffel, Schneidebretter oder Dinge zur Aufbewahrung ist es wirklich einfach, Plastik zu vermeiden. Heute gebe ich dir meine besten Tipps für deine plastikfreie Küche. Auf geht’s!

17 Tipps für eine Küche ohne Plastik

Nutze die folgenden Tipps für eine plastikfreie Küche, um Plastik aus deiner Küche zu verbannen. Du musst nicht alles auf einmal wegschmeißen, sondern solltest viele Dinge einfach so lange wie möglich benutzen und sie dann anschließend durch eines der folgenden plastikfreien Dingen für die Küche ersetzen. So gibst du dem Küchenutensil aus Plastik noch ein möglichst langes Leben, bevor es dann recycelt werden kann.

1. Wachspapier anstatt Frischhaltefolie aus Plastik

Küche ohne Plastik - Wachspapier

Wachspapier ist der ideale Ersatz für die klassische Frischhaltefolie aus Plastik. Denn Wachspapier lässt sich einerseits wiederverwenden und wird aus natürlichem Material hergestellt. Ich selbst nutze Frischhaltetücher aus Bienenwachs, um meine Lebensmittel länger haltbar zu machen. Es funktioniert einwandfrei und ist ein wichtiger Bestandteil der Küche ohne Plastik.

Hier bekommst du das wiederverwendbare Bienenwachspapier


2. Schneidebretter aus Holz

Küche ohne Plastik - Schneidebrett aus Holz

Hast du in deiner Küche immer noch Frühstücksbretter aus Plastik? Und auch deine Schneidebretter sind nicht plastikfrei? Auf dem Weg zu deiner plastikfreien Küche solltest du aus nachhaltige und umweltfreundliche Bretter aus Bambus-Holz oder Reishülsen umsteigen. Diese sind preiswert, nachhaltig hergestellt (Bambus wächst superschnell nach), machen auch optisch etwas her und halten wirklich eine Ewigkeit. Ein weiterer wichtiger Schritt zur plastikfreien Küche. TIPP: Auch auf Glasschneidebretter solltest du verzichten, damit sich auch deine Messer möglichst lange halten.

Hier findest du ein richtig gutes Bambus-Schneidebrett für die Küche

Ein alternatives Schneidebrett aus Reishülsen bekommst du hier

6 langlebige Frühstücksbretter aus Bambusholz gibt es hier


3. Spülmittel selber machen

Küche ohne Plastik - Plastikfreie Küche

Spülmittel macht regelmäßig Plastikmüll in der Küche und ist auch chemisch zusammengestellt. Schlecht für deine Gesundheit und die Umwelt. Im Artikel Spülmittel selber machen, lernst du Schritt für Schritt, wie einfach du dein eigenes Spülmittel herstellen kannst. Alles was du brauchst, ist die Wunderwaffe Natron und natürliche Pflanzenseife. Komme der plastikfreien Küche wieder einen Schritt näher, indem du auf die Plastikverpackung deines Spülmittels verzichtest und es einfach schnell selber herstellt.

Hier geht’s zum Artikel Spülmittel selber machen


4. Leitungswasser aus Glas- oder Edelstahlflasche

Soulbottles - Leitungswasser trinken statt Plastikflasche

Meine Trinkflasche aus Glas- oder Edelstahl ist für mich das Wichtigste, wenn ich an das Leben ohne Plastik denke. Denn jeden Tag trinke ich meine 3 Liter Wasser aus den plastikfreien Flaschen. Nicht nur weil die Trinkflaschen ohne Plastik sind, sondern auch, weil das Wasser nachgewiesen einfach besser schmeckt. Im Artikel Leitungswasser VS Wasser aus Plastikflaschen gebe ich dir einige gesundheitliche, und umweltfreundliche Gründe, von den Plastikflaschen auf plastikfreie Trinkflaschen umzusteigen. Spare dir das schwere Tragen der Sechserträgen mit Wasser in Plastikflaschen in Zukunft.

Hier bekommst du eine richtig coole Edelstahlflasche mit Bambusdeckel

Ich bin ein großer Fan dieser Glasflasche von Soulbottles


5. Plastikfreie Entsafter

Küche ohne Plastik - Entsafter aus Holz

Wir hatten zu Hause lange einen Plastik-Entsafter für Zitronen und andere Zitrusfrüchte. Als der zerbrochen ist, sind wir dann direkt auf einen Holz-Entsafter umgestiegen. Ein cooles Accessoire in der Küche ohne Plastik, dass wirklich ewig hält. Außerdem gibt es auch Pressen aus Edelstahl, die plastikfrei verschickt werden. Ein weiterer Grund für den Umstieg vom Plastik-Entsafter zum plastikfreien Küchen-Utensil. Die folgenden Pressen / Entsafter sind supergünstig zu bekommen.

Hier gibt es einen guten Entsafter aus Buchenholz

Eine günstige Edelstahl-Saftpresse findest du hier


6. Strohhalme aus Glas oder Edelstahl

Küche ohne Plastik - Plastikfreie Strohhalme aus Glas

In eine Küche ohne Plastik gehören selbstverständlich auch keine Strohhalme aus Plastik. Zeit sich plastikfreie Alternative zu suchen und die gibt es reichlich. Verwende einfach wiederverwendbare Strohhalme aus Glas oder Edelstahl für deine plastikfreie Küche. Auch Papierstrohhalme sind eine Alternative, aber mit den Glas- und Edelstrohhalmen bist du nachhaltiger unterwegs.

Hier bekommst du wiederverwendbare Strohhalme aus Edelstahl

Plastikfreie Glas-Strohhalme gibt es hier


7. ByeBye Kaffeekapseln

Küche ohne Plastik - Plastikfreie Küche

Jedes Jahr  verbrauchen wir Deutschen 2 Milliarden Kaffeekapseln aus Plastik und machen so 4000 Tonnen Plastikmüll.1) Gönne dir stattdessen einen Röstkaffee aus der plastikfreien Verpackung, denn die Kapseln machen unfassbar viel Plastikmüll. Ich selbst bin kein Kaffee-Trinker, kann dir aber den Lieblings-Röstkaffee einer Freundin empfehlen.

Hier bekommst du den plastikfreien Röstkaffee (Arabica Kaffeebohnen, Dom. Republik)


8. Wiederverwendbare Bambus-Papiertücher

Küche ohne Plastik - Plastikfreies Küchenpapier

Sind wir ehrlich: Küchenpapier nutzen wir für jeden Fleck in der Küche. Auch wenn das Küchenpapier selbst aus nachhaltigem Material hergestellt wird, ist es noch einmal in Plastik verpackt. Für eine Küche ohne Plastik solltest du deshalb einfach auf wiederverwendbares Küchenpapier aus Bambus umsteigen. Die ideale plastikfreie Alternative für deine Küche.

Und hier bekommst du das plastikfreie Bambus-Küchenpapier


9. Plastikfreie Einmachgläser

Plastikfreie Küche - Küche ohne Plastik organisieren

Zero Waste und plastikfreies Leben haben sich zum Lebensstil entwickelt. Stellvertretend dafür stehen meiner Meinung nach die Einmachgläser, die sich wunderbar zur Aufbewahrung von Lebensmitteln eignen. Tausche Plastiktüten und Co. gegen Einmachgläser. Sie eignen sich sowohl zur Aufbewahrung als auch für den Transport. Der nächste Schritt zur Küche ohne Plastik.

Gute Einmachgläser bekommst du hier im Set


10. Biologisch abbaubarer Müllsack anstatt Plastiksack

Plastikfreie Küche - Küche ohne Plastik organisieren

Auch der Müllsack für deine Abfälle muss nicht aus Plastik sein. Denn die Plastikbeutel lassen sich mittlerweile wunderbar durch Müllbeutel aus Maisstärke ersetzen. Bringe in Zukunft biologisch abbaubare Müllsäcke aus deiner plastikfreien Küche zum Müllcontainer. So machst du einen weiteren Schritt zu deiner Küche ohne Plastik.

Hier gibt es die biologisch abbaubarem Müllsäcke ohne Plastik


11. Spülbürsten aus Holz

Küche ohne Plastik - Plastikfreie Spülbürsten

Die Spülbürsten aus Plastik sind sicher sehr günstig, aber lassen sich wunderbar durch eine plastikfreie Alternative ersetzen. Spülbürsten aus Holz zum Beispiel gehören einfach in eine plastikfreie Küche. Sie machen optisch etwas her und halten mindestens genauso lange, wie die herkömmlichen Spülbürsten aus Plastik.

Hier bekommst du stabile Spülbürsten aus Holz


12. Eigene Kräuter anbauen

Plastikfreie Küche - Küche ohne Plastik organisieren

Wenn du Kräuter in einer Plastikdose kaufst, machst du direkt wieder eine Menge Plastikmüll. Denn die Kräuter sind schnell aufgebraucht. Warum pflanzt du dir die Kräuter nicht einfach selbst in der Küche oder im Garten an? Denn auch das gehört zur Küche ohne Plastik dazu. Ich habe dazu auch ein gesonderten Artikel geschrieben.

Hier geht’s zum Artikel Kräuter & Pflanzen selber anbauen


13. Vorsicht bei der Mixer-Wahl!

Küche ohne Plastik - Mixer

Wenn du unbedingt einen Mixer für Smoothies brauchst, dann solltest du darauf achten, dass er langlebig ist und nicht direkt nach 10 Smoothies wieder kaputt und damit Plastikmüll ist. Ich kenne keinen Mixer der gänzlich ohne Plastik auskommt. Empfehlen kann ich dir den folgenden Mixer mit großem Behälter aus Glas.

Hier bekommst du einen (annähernd plastikfreien) Mixer


14. Edelstahldose statt Plastikdose

Küche ohne Plastik - Edelstahldose

Wenn du in deiner Küche ohne Plastik dein Mittagessen für die Arbeit vorbereitest, solltest du es nicht in eine Plastikdose füllen, sondern stattdessen eine Lunch-Box aus Edelstahl verwenden. Die ist genauso dicht, hält lange und riecht nicht. Ich habe alle meine Plastikboxen entsorgt. Die Edelstahlboxen sind die perfekte plastikfreie Alternative für unterwegs.

Hier bekommst du die ideale Edelstahl-Lunchbox


15. Geschirrtücher aus Leinen

Küche ohne Plastik - Plastikfreie Geschirrtücher

Geschirrtücher und Abwaschtücher sind häufig in Plastik verpackt oder bestehen selbst aus Plastikfasern. Die folgenden Tücher aus Leinen gehören in jede Küche ohne Plastik und sind die perfekte plastikfreie Alternative. Oder warum machst du dir deine Geschirrtücher nicht einfach selbst aus alten T-Shirts oder Tischdecken?

Hier bekommst du die plastikfreien Leinen-Geschirrtücher


16. Küchenhelfer aus Bambus-Holz

Küche ohne Plastik - Bambus Küchenhelfer

Küchenhelfer aus Plastik haben ausgedient. Warum steigst du nicht auf plastikfreie Küchenutensilien aus Bambus-Holz um? Grillzange, Pfannenwender, Kochlöffel und Co. aus Holz gehören auf jeden Fall in jede Küche ohne Plastik. Mit Klick auf den folgenden Link, bekommst du die aktuell besten Küchenhelfer ohne Plastik. Ich habe selbst plastikfreie Küchenhelfer aus Bambus-Holz produzieren lassen.

Hier bekommst du gute Küchenhelfer aus Bambus-Holz


17. Außerdem gut für eine nachhaltige Küche

Mit den bisherigen Tipps bist du auf dem besten Weg zu deiner eigenen Küche ohne Plastik. Um die Küche noch etwas nachhaltiger zu machen, möchte ich dir jetzt noch ein paar Tipps mit auf den Weg geben:

  • Verschwende keine Lebensmittel: In Deutschland gehören wir zu den Spitzenreitern der Lebensmittelverschwendung, weil alles scheinbar unbegrenzt zur Verfügung steht und bezahlbar ist. Wenn du Lebensmittel / Essen über hast, nutze es für ein späteres Gericht oder hebe die Lebensmittel für Suppen oder Eintöpfe auf. Wenn du beispielsweise Hühnchen über hast, mache daraus eine coole Hühnchen-Nudelsuppe. Sei kreativ und verschwende keine Lebensmittel.
  • Prüfe deinen Wasserverbrauch: Manche Haushalte haben wirklich Wasserlecks und verbrauchen sekündlich Wasser, obwohl alle Hähne geschlossen sind. Das kannst du einfach einmal testen, indem du den Stand am Wasserzähler notierst, für zwei Stunden kein Wasser verbrauchst und dann den Stand erneut prüfst.
  • Bevorzuge handbetriebene Küchengeräte: Um in deiner plastikfreien Küche auch Energie zu sparen, solltest du Küchengeräte verwenden, die keinen Strom benötigen und manuell einsetzbar sind. Beispielsweise so einen Schneebesen aus Edelstahl oder die bereits erwähnte Edelstahl-Zitruspresse.

Since May 2013, the Boko Haram insurgency in Northern Nigeria has destroyed infrastructure, provoked dramatic livelihoods erosion and triggered the displacement of over 2 million people, out of which 1.4 million people are in Borno State. The humanitarian situation of internally displaced persons (IDPs) is critical. Following years of conflict, the majority of the state's rural areas are empty. Much of the population has fled to the relative safety of Maiduguri, capital of Borno State, or other Local Government Area (LGA) capitals. In the IDP camps of Maiduguri and other enclaved LGA capitals, large portions of the population are extremely vulnerable and in need of immediate humanitarian support. While some areas have recently experienced returns in proximity of main roads, the population from many LGAs is likely to remain displaced for the medium term, lacking security, shelter and livelihoods in their villages of origin.

          National Consultant on Health Sector Response to Violence Against Children at UNICEF      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) - For 70 years, UNICEF has been working on the ground in 190 countries and territories to promote children's survival, protection and development. The world's largest provider of vaccines for developing countries, UNICEF supports child health and nutrition, good water and sanitation, quality basic education for all boys and girls, and the protection of children from violence, exploitation, and AIDS. UNICEF is funded entirely by the voluntary contributions of individuals, businesses, foundations and governments. If you are a committed, creative professional and are passionate about making a lasting difference for children, the world's leading children's rights organization would like to hear from you.Job Number: 515314 Location: Abuja Work Type: Consultancy The duration of this consultancy: 6 months Purpose of Assignment Under the overall guidance of the Child Protection Chief, the national consultant will contribute to the design and integration of child protection programme on ending violence against children in the Health setting to existing health Programmes, Polices and guideline to contribute to the prevention and response of violence against children in the health sector. Background Children have a right to be free from all forms of abuse, violence, exploitation and neglect. In recent years, the global community has increasingly recognized that (i) the number of children experiencing abuse, violence, exploitation and neglect is significant, and is rising in some areas (ii) efforts to address child protection issues have been poorly coordinated and resourced, with a focus on stand-alone/single issue based projects (such as on sexual exploitation, child trafficking, street children, child labour etc. with limited sustainability; and (iii) children face multiple risks - abuse can be combined with exploitation and/or abandonment, for example, yet many programs are designed to address a single risk. To corroborate this, the findings of the 2014 VAC Survey highlighted shocking statistics on the various forms of violence children face in Nigeria. Key highlights indicate that before the age of 18 years, 6 out 10 children experience some form of violence; 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 10 boys experience sexual violence and majority of the children reported multiple incidents. The survey further reveals that children are not speaking out or seeking or receiving services. i.e. less than 6% of children who experience sexual or physical violence sought help and less that 5% of those who sought help receive help. These Statistics indicated that very few children knew where to seek help after suffering violence (15.6% of girls and 26.1% of boys who experienced sexual abuse in the last 12 months) and a low percentage of children reported their experiences (5.2% girls and 3.4 boys). It is also distressing to note that out of the few children that reported only 4.2% girls and 3.4% boys received any help. Violence Against Children including physical, emotional and sexual abuse, including sexual assault or rape of children and adolescents is a major global public health problem, a violation of human rights and has many health consequences in the short and long term. The physical, sexual, reproductive health and mental health consequences of such abuse are wide ranging and need to be addressed. Data from several settings show that children are disproportionately represented among the cases of sexual abuse that are brought to the attention of health care providers. Health services in many instances are slow to recognize violence against children, lack staff trained on identifying and responding to violence against children, have limited resources and seldom consider violence against children as health problem, are reluctant to talk about it and may not know how to help. The consultant will be responsible for the implementation of the following tasks: Conduct literature reviews of both qualitative and quantitative studies to identify values and preferences to inform good practices and guiding principles Stakeholders consultation to review existing health policies and inform policy recommendations for the integration of child protection issues and health sector response to VAC Develop and validate national guidelines and protocols for the health sector response child victim/survivors of violence, consistent with international human rights standards and WHO guidelines Develop, validate and finalize pocket books with messages on VAC, guiding principles for front line health care providers (general practitioners, nurses, paediatricians, gynaecologists etc.) Develop guidelines and implementation strategy for sustained capacity building of health care providers (1) training of health care providers on VAC and child friendly/sensitive health care (2) Integration of training on child protection in pre-and in -service curriculum for all health professionals Develop strategy for strengthening routine reporting and documentation of violence against children and final report End Product Inception and literation review report documenting good practices and guiding principles for delivery of clinical care for child victims/survivors of violence National guidelines and protocols for health sector response to VAC and safe guarding policy Pocket books with messages on child protection and VAC including guiding principles for front line health care providers (general practitioners, nurses, paediatricians, gynaecologists etc.) and short messages on health sector response to VAC for different categories of health care providers Guideline and implementation strategy for sustained capacity building and training material /pre and in-service curriculum on CP and VAC for health care providers Mandatory reporting policy and protocol for health facilities and health care providers and a roadmap for operationalizing the protocol including tools and guidelines for reporting, tracking, referral and response on violence against children Qualifications or Specialized Knowledge/Experience Required Advanced university degree in Medicine, Health promotion/child psychology or related field (masters or equivalent) A minimum of eight years of relevant professional work experience with projects related to child protection in the education section Experience in the field child psychology and clinical care of children Experience in the field of child protection system strengthening is an asset Excellent planning and organizational skills Strong communication skills - both oral and written Experience with UNICEF is desirable Fluency in written and spoken English Experience working with government desirable

          Riot Games: Berichte über Sexismus, Homophobie, unangemessenes Verhalten gegenüber Frauen und Fans usw.      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Bei Kotaku ist ein sehr ausführlicher Bericht über problematische Arbeitsbedingungen und unangemessenes Verhalten einiger Mitarbeiter bei Riot Games (League of Legends) aufgetaucht. Berichtet wird über Sexismus, ungleiche Behandlung zwischen Männern und Frauen, Homophobie, Transphobie, fragwürdige Einstellungsmethoden bei Bewerbungen, Benachteilungen von Frauen und rücksichtslose Kommentare einiger Mitarbeiter gegenüber weiblichen Fans. Laut Kotaku sind ca. 80 Prozent der Mitarbeiter bei Riot Games männlich. Nach der Veröffentlichung des Artikels meldeten sich weitere Betroffene zu Wort und prangerten ähnliche Probleme an.

Auch unser Video-Redakteur Eike geht im täglichen News-Video auf diese Situation ein (siehe unten oder hier).

Dem Kotaku-Artikel ist zum Beispiel zu entnehmen: "Die Besetzung einer Führungsposition durch eine Frau erwies sich für Lacy als unmöglich, und sie verließ das Unternehmen zum Teil wegen des Sexismus, den sie persönlich erlebt hatte. Sie sagte, ihr Vorgesetzter hätte sie gefragt, ob es schwer sei, so süß zu sein und für Riot zu arbeiten. Manchmal, sagte sie, deutete er an, dass ihre Position nur eine direkte Folge ihres Aussehens sei. (...)

Eines Tages führte Lacy ein Experiment durch: Nachdem eine Idee, an die sie wirklich geglaubt hatte, während eines Meetings abgelehnt wurde, bat sie einen männlichen Kollegen, die gleiche Idee einige Tage später der gleichen Gruppe von Mitarbeitern zu präsentieren. Er war skeptisch, aber sie bestand darauf, dass er es versucht. 'Und siehe da, eine Woche später ging er dorthin, präsentierte die [Idee], genau wie ich es tat, und der ganze Raum bebte. Oh mein Gott, das ist erstaunlich. Sein Gesicht wurde rot und er hatte Tränen in den Augen', sagte Lacy. 'Sie haben die Frauen einfach nicht respektiert.'"


In dem Artikel bei Kotaku wird ebenfalls darauf eingegangen, dass die Bewerbungsprozesse für Frauen schwerer wären - im Vergleich zu Männern. Die Bewerberinnen müssten viel intensiver nachweisen, dass sie "echte Gamer" seien. Riot Games soll auf eine sehr intensive und kompetitive "Core-Gamer" Unternehmenskultur setzen (inkl. Schimpftiraden bei LoL-Partien).

Und auch Kristen (MiniWhiteRabbit) verbreitete via Twitter, dass Frauen kaum Chancen bei Beförderungen hätten, sie schlechter bezahlen werden und ihr Vorgesetzter sogar Lügen (über Fremdgehen) über sie verbreitet hätte. In ihrem abschließenden Statement schreibt sie: "Mehrere Frauen vertrauten mir an, dass sie bei der Arbeit sexuell belästigt wurden. Ihnen wurde auf den Hintern gehauen, sie wurden auf Partys begrapscht oder sie wurden auf Riot-Veranstaltungen vergewaltigt. Zuerst war es schockierend. Dann wurde es zum Standard."

Multiple women confided in me about being sexually harassed at work. About their asses being slapped, being groped at parties, or being raped at Riot events.

At first it was shocking. Then it became standard.

When the guy who took my job decided to leave it, I was asked if I'd consider taking over the role again. I asked if I'd be paid the same he was for the same responsibilities (20k more than I was making).

Eine weitere ehemalige Mitarbeiterin meldete sich bei Tumblr zu Wort und schilderte ähnliche Vorfälle, ging aber ergänzend darauf ein, dass sich manche Mitarbeiter bei Riot Games abfällig gegenüber Fans (vor allem weibliche Cosplayer) verhalten hätten - wobei sie anmerkt, dass das natürlich nicht für alle Mitarbeiter des Unternehmens gelten würde. "Die große Mehrheit der Riot-Mitarbeiter, die ich getroffen habe, war sehr nett, und wie erwähnt, gibt es viele Menschen, die nicht sexistischen Verhaltensweisen und Belästigungen ausgesetzt waren", schreib sie. Aber sie hätte auch das folgende Verhalten beobachtet.

Übersetzung des Tumblr-Blogs (Auszüge): "Mein größtes Bedenken bei Riot - meine eigenen Erfahrungen stelle ich hinten an - ist das unangemessene und manchmal rücksichtslose Verhalten einiger Mitarbeiter gegenüber den Fans. Ich habe mich oft gegen solche Kommentare und Szenarien gewehrt, aber ich war eine der wenigen, die das Wort ergriffen haben. Rioter [Mitarbeiter von Riot] werden oft als Prominente mit engagierten Fans gesehen, und es ist leicht, diese Macht zu missbrauchen.

Ich beobachtete regelmäßig anzügliche Kommentare über Frauen, die bei Veranstaltungen vorbeikamen, über ihre Attraktivität und darüber, ob jemand mit ihnen schlafen würde, und darüber, ob sie das Alter erreicht hätten, um schon [dem Sex] zustimmen zu können.  

Mehrmals hörte ich männliche Angestellte prahlen und intime Details über das Rummachen mit Spielern bei Veranstaltungen, einschließlich eines Cosplayers, mit dem wir in offizieller Funktion zusammengearbeitet hatten. Einige männliche Kollegen baten mich sogar, sie mit Cosplayern zu "verkuppeln".

Ich hörte Kommentare von mindestens einem Dutzend Mitarbeiter, dass Cosplayer nur Kostüme anfertigen würden, um Aufmerksamkeit zu erregen und sie fragen: "Ist das überhaupt ein Kostüm" - als eine sehr berühmte Cosplayerin einen spärlich bekleideten weiblichen Champion nachgebildet hatte. Ich zeigte ihnen, dass das Kostüm eins zu eins mit der künstlerischen Vorlage überstimmte. Sie gaben ungern zu, dass es sich um ein offizielles Outfit handelte. Das ist offensichtlich sehr heuchlerisch.

Mindestens dreimal haben die Mitarbeiter von Riot Dublin per Arbeits-E-Mail unangemessene Kommentare über die Brüste einer Cosplayerin abgegeben (eine, mit der sie regelmäßig gearbeitet hatten). Während meiner Zeit in L.A. hatte ich eine Woche lang sehr erfolgreiche Treffen mit Riot-Mitarbeitern, um eine neue Cosplay-Initiative auf den Weg zu bringen. In einer Sitzung habe ich meine Freude darüber zum Ausdruck gebracht, dass wir so tolle Programme für Cosplayer entwickelt hatten. Der älteste Mitarbeiter antwortete dann: "Wer würde nicht mit Cosplayern arbeiten wollen? Weil Titten."

Während einer Veranstaltung kam zum ersten Mal eine Cosplayerin weinend an unseren Stand, weil jemand ihr Gewicht in Bezug auf den Charakter negativ kommentiert hatte. Eine andere Mitarbeiterin und ich trösteten sie für fast 30 Minuten, und sie ging und fühlte sich viel besser. Nachdem sie gegangen war, nannte sie ein Kollege von Riot einen "Fettarsch" und fragte, warum sie versuchen würde, den von ihr gewählten Charakter zu spielen. Ich stand unter Schock, erzählte ihm aber, wie unangebracht das war, so über unsere Fans zu reden, besonders über jene, die leidenschaftlich genug waren, um Kostüme zu machen und zu tragen. Cosplayer wurden von Riot-Mitarbeitern auch "trannies" [Transvestiten] und "attention whores" [Medienhuren] genannt."



          Röbel/Müritz – Hofcafé/Eineweltladen – schneller vorbei als drin      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
.Durch Röbels Innenstadt langsam gefahren, um einen Parkplatz zu erspähen. Dabei dennoch zu schnell an dem „Urlaubswünsche . . . Hofcafé“ vorüber gewesen. Dabei hatte ich Appetit auf ein Käffchen, während Heide mehr darin vermutete. Also baldmöglichst gewendet und noch einmal diese Strecke – das „Hofcafé“ erspäht UND einen Parkplatz in unmittelbarer Nähe! Rasch geparkt und schon waren wir drin – doch wohl ebenso schnell wieder raus gewesen, wenn wir nicht ganz eindringlich und liebevoll um zwei Plätze gebeten hätten. Also durften wir bleiben, wurde noch Platz geschaffen! Mein Wunsch nach Kaffee wurde gern gehört und durch das Nennen einiger Kuchensorten (mit geringer noch verbliebener Anzahl wegen der vorgerückten Stunde) ergänzt. Mmmmm! Wie das schon klang! Während Heide dem „Eineweltladen“-Teil einen Besuch abstattete, freute ich mich bereits auf den selbstgebackenen Kuchen. Sie wurde fündig und ich genoss das (vorletzte) Stück Pflaumenkuchen mit Streuseln, wie ich sie noch nie gehabt hatte: ganz klitzekleine Streusel – und das schmeckte! Wie es meist ist, kommt man ins Gespräch mit den Wirtsleuten, kann seine Freude über dieses Kleinod loswerden, hört Interessantes aus der Umgebung – und freilich auch von den Sorgen, das Geschäft aufrecht zu halten. Dabei sind Interneteintragungen nicht immer vorteilhaft. Und hat es Einem mal nicht geschmeckt oder nicht gefallen, muss das ja nicht sofort im Internet kundgetan werden. Also wir beide waren begeistert von der Kombination des „Eineweltladens“ mit dem „Hofcafé“ und empfehlen es gerne, selbst zu schauen, wie gut man dort verweilen und genießen kann!
          Nigeria: Quinze soldats tués dans une embuscade de Boko Haram-source      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
MAIDUGURI, Nigeria (Reuters) - Quinze soldats et un responsable nigérian ont été tués dans une embuscade tendue mercredi soir par des islamistes présumés du groupe Boko Haram, dans l'Etat de Borno, dans le nord-est du Nigeria, a-t-on appris jeudi auprès des services de sécurité nigérians. L'embuscade, tendue dans le district de Damasak, souligne la difficulté de sécuriser le nord-est du Nigeria à l'approche des élections législatives et présidentielle de février 2019. A la mi-juillet, 20 militaires nigérians ont été portés disparus dans des affrontements avec les djihadistes de Boko Haram dans le secteur de Bama de l'Etat de Borno.

E-Lastenräder: Der neue Urban Mobility Trend

Es ist wirklich nicht lange her, da waren Lastenräder noch extrem selten. Sie galten als verschrobenes Accessoire für Ökos, Alt-Hippies und überhaupt gehörten sie eigentlich nach Holland. Das war einmal. Zunehmend verstopfte Innenstädte, Abgasverordnungen und eine auf Umweltschutz eingestellte neue Elterngeneration haben das grundlegend geändert. Aber auch die Weiterentwicklung, die E-Bikes in den letzten Jahren erfahren haben, hat natürlich zur Erfolgsgeschichte der Transport-Fahrräder beigetragen. Denn ein Fahrrad mit vielen, vielen Kilos Zuladung bewegst du mit elektrischer Unterstützung doch deutlich leichter vom Fleck. Dabei bleibst du aber abgasmäßig locker unter den Werten eines Autos, und so hat auch die Politik die Zeichen der Zeit erkannt und unterstützt die Anschaffung kommerziell genutzter Transport-Bikes mit satten Prämien. Umweltfreundlich, flexibel und kostengünstig – kein Wunder, dass Cargobikes in Deutschland längst keine Randerscheinung mehr sind. Laut auf der Eurobike 2018 veröffentlichten Zahlen gingen im vergangenen Jahr 15 000 Lastenräder – naja, vielleicht nicht über die Ladentische, denn dazu sind sie zu schwer. Jedenfalls tummeln sie sich jetzt in den Städten und machen das Straßenbild noch ein bisschen bunter.

Motor, Akku, Bordcomputer – ohne E läuft (fast) nichts mehr

riese-muller-packster-jpg

Leichtgewichte sind Lastenräder allerdings in den meisten Fällen eher nicht. Daher setzen sie heutzutage auf einen elektrischen Antrieb.

Die immer effizienter arbeitenden Motoren und stärkeren Akkus kamen den Entwicklern von Marken wie Urban Arrow, Butchers & Bicyles, Riese und Müller und vielen weiteren gerade recht. Denn es ist nicht anders als bei großen Autos – was an Platz da ist, wird auch vollgeladen. Je nach Hersteller und Modell sind auf E-Lastenrädern bis zu 300kg Zuladung möglich, da muss ein Antriebssystem schon einiges leisten. Daher wirst du in den Spezifikationen auch oft die beiden altbekannten Branchenriesen Bosch und Shimano finden. Deren Antriebsgruppen sind mittlerweile ausgereift, sämtliche Kinderkrankheiten wurden ausgemerzt. Statt sensationelle Neuentwicklungen auf den Markt zu bringen, wird hier an der Performance der Komponenten geschraubt und die Benutzerfreundlichkeit der Bedienelemente verbessert. Der Trend, die E-Komponenten immer kleiner werden zu lassen, damit sie am Fahrrad nicht mehr auf den ersten Blick zu erkennen sind, ist bei einem E-Lastenrad eher überflüssig, denn Platz für Akkus und Co. ist ja nun wirklich genug vorhanden.

Auf möglichst wenig Gewicht zu achten ist daher auch völlig unnötig - die Bikes sind schwer, das ist nun einmal nicht zu ändern. Daher werden absolut ungeniert große Motoren und große Akkus verbaut, Systeme wie die Bosch Dual Battery mit gleich zwei gekoppelten Akkus kommen da gerade recht. Weitere zusätzliche Akkus verschwinden in Gepäcktaschen oder Ladeboxen. Die Motoren, die eigentlich für leistungsstarke Mountainbikes konzipiert wurden und an einem Sport-Bike für hervorragende Klettereigenschaften und sportlich-dynamisches Fahrverhalten sorgen, erlauben bei einem bis an die Kante beladenen E-Cargobike gemütliches Mitschwimmen im Straßenverkehr. Der Bosch Performance Line CX oder die Arbeitstiere Shimano STEPS E7000 oder E8000 sind eine perfekte Wahl, um sämtliche Lasten zuverlässig zu bewegen.

Das soll aber nicht heißen, dass kleinere Hersteller keine Chance haben. Wer um die Ecke denkt, was den Transport von Waren angeht, der gibt auch gerne anderen Um-die-Ecke-Denkern eine Chance, daher finden sich an einigen E-Lastenrädern innovative Antriebe kleinerer Hersteller wie der eZee-Antrieb, eigentlich ein Nachrüstmotor, der aus einer sympatischen Manufaktur in Süddeutschland stammt.

Gepäck vorne? Oder hinten? Oder beides?

Generell hast du bei E-Lastenfahrrädern zwei Möglichkeiten, dein Gepäck unterzubringen. Entweder es gibt eine Transportbox vorne oder einen extra starken Gepäckträger hinten. In einigen Fällen gibt es auch beides.

Riesige Zuladungen, Sitze für mehrere Kinder und noch allerlei andere Gimmicks – manchmal hat man den Eindruck, Daniel Düsentreib hätte seine Finger im Spiel gehabt. Die Transportmöglichkeiten bei Lastenfahrrädern lassen keine Wünsche offen. Firmen wie Urban Arrow, Riese und Müller und HNF-NICOLAI bauen Fahrräder mit flexibler Ladefläche über der vorderen Achse.

clamber-e-lastenrad-eurobike-2018-jpg

Es gibt offene Transportboxen, geschlossene Transportboxen, Ladewannen und Passagierräume mit bequemen und sicheren Sitzplätzen für bis zu vier Kinder. Die wiederum gibt es in Fahrrichtung oder entgegen der Fahrtrichtung. Außerdem kannst du wählen zwischen überdachtem und offenem Fahrgastraum. Es gibt einfache Ladeflächen aus Riffelblech oder Lastenrad E-Bikes mit zwei Ladeflächen, eine vor der vorderen Achse und eine dahinter. Isolierende Transportboxen für gekühlte Waren wurden bereits von mehreren Marken vorgestellt, einer der Hersteller hat für das Jahr 2019 sogar aktiv kühlende Transportboxen in Aussicht gestellt.

Für ganz spezielle Einsatzzwecke gibt es Firmen, die den Käufern Transportbikes maßschneidern. Eine Bibliothek auf Rädern ist vielleicht nicht massenkompatibel, eine gute Idee hatte Radkutsche da aber auf jeden Fall.

radkutsche-bibliothek-jpg

Die Lastenfahrräder mit verstärktem Gepäckträger kommen optisch etwas weniger spektakulär daher. Eigentlich musst du schon zweimal hinschauen, wenn ein Fahrrad an dir vorbeibrettert, beladen mit zwei Kindersitzen. Oder einem Kindersitz und einem erwachsenen Passagier auf einem bequemen Sitzkissen. Oder wahlweise einem Erwachsenen und einem Kind und einer großen Transportbox. Möglich wird das durch eine innovative Rahmenkonstruktion. Dass der Gepäckträger fast einen Meter lang und Teil des Rahmens ist, sieht man nicht sofort. Der Gepäckträger wird nicht angebaut, vielmehr ist er Teil des Rahmens. Er besteht auch nicht aus feinem Stahlgestänge, sondern wird aus den gleichen Rohren konstruiert wie der restliche Rahmen. So entstehen Bikes, die neben dem Fahrer bis zu drei Passagiere befördern und 200kg Transportgut aufnehmen.

yuba-mondo-lux-jpg

Auf die Achse kommt es an!

Damit eine derartige Menge an Gewicht effizient vor der Stelle bewegt wird, braucht ein Transportbike einen starken Antrieb. Allerdings wird die Fahrt mit mehr Gewicht immer wackeliger. Und daher verlassen die Konstrukteure irgendwann die Welt der Zweiräder und verteilen die Last auf drei Reifen. Gerade bei kostbarer, aber zappeliger Last – klar, wir meinen deine Kinder – darf das Fahrzeug auf keinen Fall kippen. Daher sind die Cargoräder mit Sitzen für Kinder meist dreirädrig, so stehen sie sicher, und das auch an roten Ampeln oder während du sie belädst. Nur um die Kurve kommst du mit einem Dreirad eher schlecht…zumindest war das früher so. Aber glücklicherweise gehören die meisten Transportbike-Hersteller selber zu den überzeugten Transportbike-Fahrern und daher haben sie sich auch dafür eine Lösung einfallen lassen. „Kippbare Achse“ ist die Zauberformel. Ein Fahrrad mit zwei Rädern vorne steht bombenfest auf dem Boden, wenn die Räder sich in die Kurve neigen ist der Wendekreis aber vergleichbar mit dem eines völlig normalen Fahrrads, ohne E, ohne doppelte Bereifung und ohne Cargo.

Familienkutschen

Noch ist es eher selten, aber nach der Eurobike werden mit Sicherheit mehr und mehr Fahrräder mit Transportgut unterwegs sein. Aber schon heute fahren viele Eltern ihre Kinder per E-Bike durch die Stadt. Und hier hat ein Lastenrad eine ganze Menge Vorteile: in den seltensten Fällen transportierst du nur dein Kind. Da muss eine ganze Menge mehr mit. Teddybär, Windeln, Fläschchen, Sonnencreme, Ball und Reiswaffeln (du siehst, wir sprechen aus Erfahrung!). Spannend wird es dann, wenn aus einem Kind zwei werden. Zwei Teddys, viele Windeln, zwei Fläschchen…Ein normales Fahrrad ist da ganz schnell am Ende seiner Möglichkeiten angekommen. Wenn es das könnte, würde ein E-Cargo-Bike darüber nur müde lächeln.

Vorteil Nummer 2: In keinem Kindersitz sind deine Kinder so sicher aufgehoben, wie in einer Passagierbox vor deinem Lenker. Denn die bietet Knautschzone und außerdem keinerlei Fallhöhe. Die Kids sitzen bequem, fest angeschnallt, haben eine Menge Bewegungsfreiheit und außerdem hast du sie immer im Blick. Trocken bleiben sie auch, denn wenn die Transportbox kein Verdeck eingebaut hat, bekommst du zumindest eine passende Regenhaube als Zubehör.

Butchers&Bicycles: Made in Kopenhagen

Stylischer werden Transportfahrräder wohl in näherer Zukunft nicht werden. Bequemer für Insassen und Fahrer auch nicht. Die Sitze erinnern eher an Wohnzimmersessel, die neigbaren Vorderräder sorgen für Wendigkeit. Wenn deine Kinder schon etwas größer sind, wirst du die Türe zum Passagierraum schnell ins Herz schließen. Dank ihr musst du die Kinder nicht hineinheben, sie können selbst einsteigen.

The Context of White Supremacy hosts the weekly Compensatory Call-In.

We'll use these sessions to hone our use of words as tools to reveal truth, neutralize White people. We'll examine news reports from the past seven days and - hopefully - promote a constructive dialog. #ANTIBLACKNESS White Power has been exhibited around the globe in the wake of the Charlie Hebdo shooting; Whites chastised Pres. Obama for not participating in the French rally against terrorism and unanimously affirmed White freedom of speech - even for Racists. Tweeting #BlackLivesMatter don't make it so, as hundreds (maybe thousands) of black people are reported to have been massacred in melanin and oil rich Nigeria. Whites yawned. 6-year-old Kendrea Johnson's hanging death was declared an accident/suicide - the second strange hanging death of a black child in Minnesota since 2013. As protest$ and dialog about police brutality continue, North Miami Beach Police were found to have been using photographs of arrested black males for target practice; apparently, this does not constitute a breech of department policy. NYPD union boss and Suspected Race Soldier Patrick Lynch is being challenged by many non-white officers - whom assert that Racism is a problem; New York Mayor De Blasio's "diverse" family didn't prohibit him from promoting Elif Gure-Perez, a convicted Racist. #AnswersForMiriamCarey INVEST in The COWS - http://tiny.cc/ledjb CALL IN NUMBER: 760.569.7676 CODE 564943# SKYPE: FREECONFERENCECALLHD.7676 CODE 564943# The C.O.W.S. archives: http://tiny.cc/76f6p

The Context of White Supremacy hosts the 9th and final study session on Randy Roberts and Johnny Smith's 2016 release, Blood Brothers: The Fatal Friendship Between Muhammad Ali and Malcolm X. The book preceded Ali's death by mere months. Roberts and Smith, both Suspected Racists, provide their study of the genesis and abrupt end to Ali and Minister Malcolm's bond and how their friendship evaporated as Minister Malcolm's exile from Elijah Muhammad and the Nation of Islam became permanent. Unfortunately, Ali was not able to mend things before Malcolm's 1965 assasination. Last week's segment detailed Ali and Minister Malcolm's travels throughout the continent of Africa. They detail Minister Malcolm's meetings with African leaders and citizens and his efforts to conceptualize Racism as a global problem for all black people. They provide a thorough analysis of how the CIA and international enforcement agencies pressured African leaders to distance themselves from Malcolm. The book also detailed Ali's tremendous popularity on the continent, especially his notoriety with Muslims. However, they emphasize his ignorance of orthodox Muslim practices and diplomatic missteps when visiting Nigeria. Most importantly, the book completely ignores Minister Malcolm being poisoned while in Egypt; it seems improbable that Elijah Muhammad and the Nation of Islam were behind this attack. As we complete the reading this week, we'll cover the execution of Minister Malcolm X, and how this impacted Muhammad Ali both inside and outside the ring. Again, this text should highlight the importance of not name-calling black people. #RacismIsNotAPrivilege 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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Nach der E3 ist vor der gamescom. Für CD PROJEKT RED und Cyberpunk 2077 heißt das nicht weniger, als dass man nun nochmal nachlegen könnte. Genauso gut könnte man sich nun nach der E3 aber auch erstmal zurückhalten. Dass CDPR keinen öffentlichen Stand für die breite Öffentlichkeit haben wird, wurde bereits bestätigt. Wenn also neue Einblicke in Cyberpunk 2077 gegeben werden, dann hinter verschlossenen Türen für die Fachbesucher.

Aber wenn es für die Messebesucher schon kein Gameplay zu sehen gibt, überrascht CDPR ja vielleicht mit einem neuen Trailer, der das von einigen geforderte Nachtleben in Night City näher beleuchtet.

Wir wissen es nicht, werden euch aber selbstverständlich auf dem Laufenden halten.

          THE MURDER OF MARY MEYER      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

On a chilly October 12, 1964 Monday morning, Mary Pinchot Meyer, a high-society socialite, (and also discovered paramour of the late assassinated President John F. Kennedy) became an assassination victim herself during her customary early morning walk to her art studio. 

Click here to enlarge top photo.

Author Peter Janney knew the Meyer family personally, as Janney’s father, Wistar Janney, was a career CIA operative and close friends with CIA chieftains Richard Helms, James Angleton, and Cord Meyer (Mary’s husband).  

“There was nothing pretty or easy about waking up early one morning in 2006 and finally realizing that my own father---Wistar Janney, a career high-level CIA officer---had been involved in the ‘termination’ of Mary Pinchot Meyer, someone I had grown to love and care about,” says Peter Janney.  “Yet there is another horror in the death of Mary Meyer, a horror that reaches far beyond the personal.  It is the intimate and undeniable connection between her murder and that of her lover, President John F. Kennedy, on November 22, 1963 in Dallas, Texas.”

MISSING LINKS

Janney begins an excursion through the arrest and trial of a young twenty-five-year-old Raymond Crump, Jr., the accused murderer of Mary Meyer.  Under the skillful counsel of defense attorney Dovey Roundtree, Crump’s attorney was able to disintegrate the accusations and charges brought against her client.  Despite prosecution’s determined “declaration of war” on Ray Crump, Roundtree meticulously dodged and rebuffed the prosecution’s manipulations of justice.  On Friday, July 30, 1965, the jury found Raymond Crump, Jr., not guilty of the murder of Mary Pinchot Meyer.  Yet, Roundtree had discovered a deeper mystery in the forensic history.

Janney explains: “Dovey Roundtree never abandoned her belief that Ray had been a scapegoat, a ‘patsy,’ who had been set up to take the fall. ‘So far as I am concerned,’ wrote Roundtree in 2009, ‘there is in the complex and tangled web of certain truth and unconfirmed rumor, of the inference and speculation and intrigue that surrounds the life and death of Mary Pinchot Meyer a single critical fact: Raymond Crump’s innocence in her murder.’”

Joseph W. Shimon floated in the highest of government circles.  He was a special White House Aide, Washington Police Inspector, liaison to the CIA, U.S Attorney’s office, U.S Secret Service, the Mob, and an official assassin:

“People are eliminated,” said Shimon to his daughter in the spring of 1965.  “Honey, you don’t know how many people are just eliminated, just on the operating table alone.  They just need to be disposed of.   And don’t ever believe what you read in the newspapers. It’s all made up…among my many jobs, I used to kill people.  The government hired me to kill people. It’s a job…you have to, if that’s what you’re told to do.”  (Shimon, interviewed by Peter Janney, February 15, 2007.)   


Roundtree further pondered the mysterious phone calls she received, the disappearance of a stalled Nash Rambler and an accompanying “repair order,” as well as the mention of “Mary’s diary having been sequestered by the CIA all these years,” linking Mary’s affair with the assassinated president.   

“Who, then, was the man that Henry Wiggins had seen standing over Mary’s corpse less than fifteen seconds after the fatal second shot was fired?” asks Janney.  “His pristine, unstained clothes appeared to match the clothes worn by Ray Crump that morning.”

NEW LEVEL OF UNDERSTANDING

Janney says that achieving a “new level of understanding in the case” would include a look at “a number of heretofore unseen details, events, experiences, and people.”  (p. 144.)

Author Peter Janney

“Another author, Leo Damore, met with Janney in 1992 while working on his own Meyer project.  Damore had written a bestseller about Senator Edward Kennedy and Chappaquiddick, and he was hot on the trail of Meyer’s killer, or so he confided to Janney.  Damore never finished his book, however.  In 1995 he committed suicide.  Years later, Janney bought Damore’s research files, using them as the basis for ‘Mary’s Mosaic.’

“James H. Smith, a Falmouth lawyer, was among those encouraging Janney to keep digging.  Smith worked for the Kennedy family years ago and knew Damore well. Now 82, he never believed the Warren Commission’s version of JFK’s murder, says Smith today, and finds nothing outlandish in Janney’s the-CIA-did-it scenario.

‘I think Peter’s hit a home run,’ Smith said.’”

Mary had several suitors before her death.  One such admirer was Robert (“Bob”) L. Schwartz who was a young naval officer and a journalist who came to know Mary as a very idealistic woman and a pacifist, but ultimately called her “a prima ballerina assoluta.”  “She was what women were meant to be,” said Schwartz.

Cord Meyer, “a charismatic war veteran,” Yale graduate, congressman, dated and eventually married Mary Pinchot.  Cord decided to work for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) in the Directorate of Plans in 1951, “the CIA’s most secretarial division dedicated to the manipulation of world order.”

Janney says:  “Somewhere in the bowels of the Washington E Street offices of the newly formed CIA, Cord Meyer transformed all his poetic, insightful visionary wisdom into perfecting schemes and strategies for America’s greater power and control, the often subtle but effective attempts at world domination---no matter what the cost.”

Mary felt a disdain for the CIA and its “mission.”  Janney quotes an anonymous source:  “Mary absolutely detested Allen Dulles and everything he stood for.  She compared him to Machiavelli, only worse.”  (p. 184.)

Cord and Mary grew apart, possibly due to Cord’s alcoholism, possibly due to Cord’s obsessive life in the CIA, but also due to Mary’s affair with (in his appearance only) “Italian noble” Jean Pierre.  The Meyers were divorced.  Shortly following these events, Michael Pinchot Meyer (the son) was hit and killed by an automobile driver.  During these sordid circumstances, Cord  became director of the CIA’s black project: Operation Mockingbird.

“Having infiltrated more than twenty-five newspapers and wire agencies, Operation Mockingbird had successfully manipulated the American media to promote the CIA viewpoint…an estimated three thousand salaried and contract CIA employees were engaged in propaganda efforts.”

October 12, 1964 - Mary Pinchot Meyer is murdered in broad daylight on the C & O Canal towpath in Georgetown, three weeks after the release of the Warren Report.

The CIA did not take kindly to an expose’ of their media control operation in Ramparts Magazine.  “CIA operative Edgar Applewhite was ordered to operate a campaign to smear the publication and then tender it financially bankrupt,” says Janney.  (p. 192.) 

Further CIA conquests included the CIA surveillance of Alfred McCoy’s The Politics of Heroin in Southeast Asia.  The book revealed that American intelligence had collaborated with the drug trade dating back as far as World War II.  CIA involvement extended about the globe resulting in the “death squads” in Central America (p. 195).  Janney talks about a “CIA-led assassination campaign throughout Southeast Asia, Operation Phoenix, (which) made matters even worse.”

THE LSD PARLANCE

http://i.ytimg.com/vi/E1GySrriCpg/hqdefault.jpg.

Mary’s friends Anne and Jim Truitt began an interest in psychedelic states of consciousness and, according to Jim Truitt, Mary first experimented with psychedelics in 1958, but Janney says a legendary Alfred M. Hubbard (a former World War II OSS agents, uranium entrepreneur) “first introduced her to such exploration.”  Dr. Oscar Janiger, a Los Angeles Psychiatrist, was also a member to Hubbard’s visits.  Hubbard was very distrustful of the CIA’s exploration of LSD.  “The CIA work stinks,” said Hubbard, “they were misusing it…when they were killing people, you couldn’t tell them a goddamn thing.”

Janney says:  “In addition to the CIA, the U.S Army, and Britain’s M16 all had a keen interest in using LSD and other hallucinogens for chemical warfare, in what they hoped would be ‘mind control.’”  In one incident, in 1951, the CIA’s Fort Detrick, Maryland had used a crop-duster airplane to cover the town of Pont-Saint-Esprit in Southern France with an aerosol of LSD.  “Four people committed suicide before the trauma subsided.”

Frank Olson, a CIA chemical warfare expert, became, in the eyes of his peers, a “security risk” and was supposedly thrown out of his tenth-floor hotel window.  It was in his world of high-society intrigue, that Mary’s drug interest expanded.

It was suspected that Mary visited Timothy Leary, the LSD guru, during the early 1960s.  That interest would become entwined with her friendship with Jack Kennedy. 

JACK KENNEDY AND MARY MEYER     

Mary became Friends with her neighbor Jack Kennedy starting somewhere about 1957.  Over a number of years, that friendship turned into a closer attraction.

“Mary’s primary attraction for Jack may have ultimately been trust---in the end,” says Janney, “love’s most powerful aphrodisiac."

Mary contacted Doctor Timothy Leary about his research and connection to the Harvard Psilocybin Project.  “Leary depicted Mary Meyer,” says Janney, “as a kind of missionary for the ascension of world peace through the sagacious use of hallucinogens…an opportune mind-altering experience in the lives of powerful political figures, specifically the leader of the free world…”

Leary’s harassment by the government and his eventual arrest and imprisonment only temporarily stifled his investigation of the murder of his Friend, Mary Meyer.   

“Upon his release from prison in 1976, having read the National Enquirer expose’ about Mary’s affair with Jack published earlier that year, Leary would attempt a second investigation of Mary’s murder,” says Janney, “after coming across a copy of Deborah Davis’ book Katharine the Great  at the home of his friends Jon and Carolyn Bradshaw.”

EVOLVING TRAJECTORY  

According to Janney, the Meyer-Kennedy affair began around January, 1962 and perhaps earlier. Both Meyer and the Kennedys, Jack and Bobby, had a growing distrust of Allen Dulles and his increasing exploits, including the Cuban Bay of Pigs, Operation Northwoods, and other nefarious CIA shenanigans.

“Mary’s longtime commitment to world peace, coupled with Jack’s broadening insight that peace, not armed conflict,” says Janney, “was the right path forward, inevitably made an important asset. After the Cuban Missile Crisis, the President’s evolving political trajectory would increasingly isolate him from his own National Security Apparatus.” 

During the Cuban missile crisis, both the U.S military and the CIA, says Janney, were secretly operating unilaterally doing whatever they could to intensify tensions that could ignite a war.

“But in the shadows, evil was very much alive, stalking not only the republic but the president,” says Janney.  “Not only were the Joint Chiefs of Staff enraged that Cuba had been attacked, but were also indignant that Kennedy had made concessions to Khrushchev.”    

Author and researcher Leo Damor told Janney about a confidential source who revealed that Mary and Jack Kennedy had taken “a mild LSD trip” in the summer of 1959. Following this episode, Kennedy pushed for a Nuclear Arms Treaty.

SECURITY OF THE SLAVE 

Mary Meyer and Jack Kennedy’s new found philosophy of world peace could be seen in his address at American University, dubbed his “peace speech”:  “Not a Pax Americana enforced on the world by American weapons of war.  Not the peace of the grave or the security of the slave.  I am talking about genuine peace, the kind of peace that makes life on earth worth living, that kind that enables men and nations to grow and to hope and to build a better life for their children---not merely peace for Americans but peace for all men and women – not merely peace in our time but peace for all time.”

THE OSWALD SYNCHRONISM  

An assassination attempt on Jack Kennedy was planned for November 2, 1963.  The plot would entail multiple gunmen, and a designated patsy, ex-marine Thomas Arthur Vallee.  Like Oswald, Thomas Vallee had also served at a U-2 base in Japan under the Joint Technical Advisory Group (JTAG), the CIA’s code name for its U-2 spy plane surveillance unit.  Like Lee Harvey Oswald, Vallee “found work” in the fall of November, 1963 in a building next to a L-shaped turn on  the route of the Presidential motorcade.  The plot, however, was foiled.

          Riot Games: Berichte über Sexismus, Homophobie, unangemessenes Verhalten gegenüber Frauen und Fans usw.      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Bei Kotaku ist ein sehr ausführlicher Bericht über problematische Arbeitsbedingungen und unangemessenes Verhalten einiger Mitarbeiter bei Riot Games (League of Legends) aufgetaucht. Berichtet wird über Sexismus, ungleiche Behandlung zwischen Männern und Frauen, Homophobie, Transphobie, fragwürdige Einstellungsmethoden bei Bewerbungen, Benachteilungen von Frauen und rücksichtslose Kommentare einiger Mitarbeiter gegenüber weiblichen Fans. Laut Kotaku sind ca. 80 Prozent der Mitarbeiter bei Riot Games männlich. Nach der Veröffentlichung des Artikels meldeten sich weitere Betroffene zu Wort und prangerten ähnliche Probleme an.

Auch unser Video-Redakteur Eike geht im täglichen News-Video auf diese Situation ein (siehe unten oder hier).

Dem Kotaku-Artikel ist zum Beispiel zu entnehmen: "Die Besetzung einer Führungsposition durch eine Frau erwies sich für Lacy als unmöglich, und sie verließ das Unternehmen zum Teil wegen des Sexismus, den sie persönlich erlebt hatte. Sie sagte, ihr Vorgesetzter hätte sie gefragt, ob es schwer sei, so süß zu sein und für Riot zu arbeiten. Manchmal, sagte sie, deutete er an, dass ihre Position nur eine direkte Folge ihres Aussehens sei. (...)

Eines Tages führte Lacy ein Experiment durch: Nachdem eine Idee, an die sie wirklich geglaubt hatte, während eines Meetings abgelehnt wurde, bat sie einen männlichen Kollegen, die gleiche Idee einige Tage später der gleichen Gruppe von Mitarbeitern zu präsentieren. Er war skeptisch, aber sie bestand darauf, dass er es versucht. 'Und siehe da, eine Woche später ging er dorthin, präsentierte die [Idee], genau wie ich es tat, und der ganze Raum bebte. Oh mein Gott, das ist erstaunlich. Sein Gesicht wurde rot und er hatte Tränen in den Augen', sagte Lacy. 'Sie haben die Frauen einfach nicht respektiert.'"


In dem Artikel bei Kotaku wird ebenfalls darauf eingegangen, dass die Bewerbungsprozesse für Frauen schwerer wären - im Vergleich zu Männern. Die Bewerberinnen müssten viel intensiver nachweisen, dass sie "echte Gamer" seien. Riot Games soll auf eine sehr intensive und kompetitive "Core-Gamer" Unternehmenskultur setzen (inkl. Schimpftiraden bei LoL-Partien).

Und auch Kristen (MiniWhiteRabbit) verbreitete via Twitter, dass Frauen kaum Chancen bei Beförderungen hätten, sie schlechter bezahlen werden und ihr Vorgesetzter sogar Lügen (über Fremdgehen) über sie verbreitet hätte. In ihrem abschließenden Statement schreibt sie: "Mehrere Frauen vertrauten mir an, dass sie bei der Arbeit sexuell belästigt wurden. Ihnen wurde auf den Hintern gehauen, sie wurden auf Partys begrapscht oder sie wurden auf Riot-Veranstaltungen vergewaltigt. Zuerst war es schockierend. Dann wurde es zum Standard."

Multiple women confided in me about being sexually harassed at work. About their asses being slapped, being groped at parties, or being raped at Riot events.

At first it was shocking. Then it became standard.

— Kristen ð��¹ (@MiniWhiteRabbit) 7. August 2018

When the guy who took my job decided to leave it, I was asked if I'd consider taking over the role again. I asked if I'd be paid the same he was for the same responsibilities (20k more than I was making).

"That's not going to happen." https://t.co/L7toRCDM39

— Jes Negrón (@JesNx) 8. August 2018
Eine weitere ehemalige Mitarbeiterin meldete sich bei Tumblr zu Wort und schilderte ähnliche Vorfälle, ging aber ergänzend darauf ein, dass sich manche Mitarbeiter bei Riot Games abfällig gegenüber Fans (vor allem weibliche Cosplayer) verhalten hätten - wobei sie anmerkt, dass das natürlich nicht für alle Mitarbeiter des Unternehmens gelten würde. "Die große Mehrheit der Riot-Mitarbeiter, die ich getroffen habe, war sehr nett, und wie erwähnt, gibt es viele Menschen, die nicht sexistischen Verhaltensweisen und Belästigungen ausgesetzt waren", schreib sie. Aber sie hätte auch das folgende Verhalten beobachtet.

Übersetzung des Tumblr-Blogs (Auszüge): "Mein größtes Bedenken bei Riot - meine eigenen Erfahrungen stelle ich hinten an - ist das unangemessene und manchmal rücksichtslose Verhalten einiger Mitarbeiter gegenüber den Fans. Ich habe mich oft gegen solche Kommentare und Szenarien gewehrt, aber ich war eine der wenigen, die das Wort ergriffen haben. Rioter [Mitarbeiter von Riot] werden oft als Prominente mit engagierten Fans gesehen, und es ist leicht, diese Macht zu missbrauchen.

Ich beobachtete regelmäßig anzügliche Kommentare über Frauen, die bei Veranstaltungen vorbeikamen, über ihre Attraktivität und darüber, ob jemand mit ihnen schlafen würde, und darüber, ob sie das Alter erreicht hätten, um schon [dem Sex] zustimmen zu können.  

Mehrmals hörte ich männliche Angestellte prahlen und intime Details über das Rummachen mit Spielern bei Veranstaltungen, einschließlich eines Cosplayers, mit dem wir in offizieller Funktion zusammengearbeitet hatten. Einige männliche Kollegen baten mich sogar, sie mit Cosplayern zu "verkuppeln".

Ich hörte Kommentare von mindestens einem Dutzend Mitarbeiter, dass Cosplayer nur Kostüme anfertigen würden, um Aufmerksamkeit zu erregen und sie fragen: "Ist das überhaupt ein Kostüm" - als eine sehr berühmte Cosplayerin einen spärlich bekleideten weiblichen Champion nachgebildet hatte. Ich zeigte ihnen, dass das Kostüm eins zu eins mit der künstlerischen Vorlage überstimmte. Sie gaben ungern zu, dass es sich um ein offizielles Outfit handelte. Das ist offensichtlich sehr heuchlerisch.

Mindestens dreimal haben die Mitarbeiter von Riot Dublin per Arbeits-E-Mail unangemessene Kommentare über die Brüste einer Cosplayerin abgegeben (eine, mit der sie regelmäßig gearbeitet hatten). Während meiner Zeit in L.A. hatte ich eine Woche lang sehr erfolgreiche Treffen mit Riot-Mitarbeitern, um eine neue Cosplay-Initiative auf den Weg zu bringen. In einer Sitzung habe ich meine Freude darüber zum Ausdruck gebracht, dass wir so tolle Programme für Cosplayer entwickelt hatten. Der älteste Mitarbeiter antwortete dann: "Wer würde nicht mit Cosplayern arbeiten wollen? Weil Titten."

Während einer Veranstaltung kam zum ersten Mal eine Cosplayerin weinend an unseren Stand, weil jemand ihr Gewicht in Bezug auf den Charakter negativ kommentiert hatte. Eine andere Mitarbeiterin und ich trösteten sie für fast 30 Minuten, und sie ging und fühlte sich viel besser. Nachdem sie gegangen war, nannte sie ein Kollege von Riot einen "Fettarsch" und fragte, warum sie versuchen würde, den von ihr gewählten Charakter zu spielen. Ich stand unter Schock, erzählte ihm aber, wie unangebracht das war, so über unsere Fans zu reden, besonders über jene, die leidenschaftlich genug waren, um Kostüme zu machen und zu tragen. Cosplayer wurden von Riot-Mitarbeitern auch "trannies" [Transvestiten] und "attention whores" [Medienhuren] genannt."



          Blizzard Entertainment: Mehrere Diablo-Projekte in Entwicklung; Ankündigungen in diesem Jahr angedeutet      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Blizzard Entertainment hat ein kurzes Video über die Zukunft der Diablo-Serie veröffentlicht, in dem Brandy Camel (Community Manager) erklärt, dass aktuell "mehrere Diablo-Projekte in Entwicklung" sind. Einige von diesen Projekten werden mehr Zeit als andere brauchen, heißt es. "Aber ... wir haben vielleicht ein paar Dinge, die wir ihnen später in diesem Jahr zeigen werden", sagte Camel. Sie spielte höchstwahrscheinlich auf die Hausmesse BlizzCon am 2. und 3. November 2018 an. Apropos BlizzCon: Der dritte Ticketverkauf wird am 18. August um 19:00 Uhr MESZ beginnen.

Neben dem mehr oder weniger obligatorischen, aber bisher nicht offiziell angekündigten Diablo 4 gab es in den vergangenen Monaten immer wieder Gerüchte über eine HD-Version von Diablo 2 (Diablo 2 Remastered) und eine Switch-Umsetzung von Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls.



Bei Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls läuft derweil die 14. Saison - die erste "thematische" Saison (Saison der Gier: Alle Schatzgoblins erscheinen im Doppelpack). Sie endet voraussichtlich am Sonntag, dem 16. September, um 17:00 Uhr MESZ in Europa.

          Newsfeed Aggregation stirbt - Strategien?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Hallo zusammen,

Microsoft hat zum Juni 2018 die Newsfeed Aggregation für SharePoint Online deaktiviert. Da helfen auch die Aussagen nicht, dass die Newsfeeds auf den Sites bestehen bleiben - was soll man mit Newsfeeds auf 135 Seiten wenn man diese nicht mehr über die Aggregation zusammengeführt bekommt.

Quelle: "We will continue to support Site Feed in its current form" - "This change impacts only the Aggregated Newsfeed feature."

Die Newsfeed-Aggregation geht also denselben Weg wie die Task-Aggregation bei SharePoint 2016 on prem bereits - sie "stirbt" einfach. Nun stehen Newsfeed sowie Tasks auch nicht für die "Modern Sites" /"New Experience" in SPO zur Verfügung. Für mich alles klassische Anzeichen dafür, dass wir uns demnächst davon verabschieden können. Für on premise wird es also nur eine Frage der Zeit sein bis die Newsfeed Aggregation weg fällt. Man hat sie ja auch bereits in 2016 auf 7 Tage begrenzt. 

Nun zur Fragestellung

Wir haben einen SharePoint 2016 on premise und SharePoint Online parallel laufen. Hybridschaltung steht kurz bevor. Welche Strategie wäre denn nun zielführend aus der Misere? 

Tasks on premise direkt auslaufen lassen und alles auf Planner setzen?

Newsfeeds on premise können ja nicht durch die SharePoint News ersetzt werden, da diese ja nur in SPO zur Verfügung stehen? Yammer - gefühlt auch ein totes Pferd. Teams? Nettes Tool, aber halt für Kommunikation und weniger (wie unsere Newsfeeds auch genutzt werden) zur Dokumentation von Projektzwischenständen und Klärung von Fragestellungen. 

Nach der Ankündigung im April und der schnellen Abschaltung der Aggregation in Juni blieb nicht viel Zeit für Planung und Strategiefindung. Welche Wege gehen andere Unternehmen denn hierbei?

Würde mich freuen wenn ich hier ein paar Einschätzungen oder Meinungen kriegen könnte. Mache nur ich mir Sorgen? 

Gruß Philipp

          Daisy entra nella finale del disco agli Europei. "Sono felicissima, non m'importa di quel che è successo prima"      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

L'azzurra Daisy Osakue si è qualificata per la finale del lancio del disco agli Europei di atletica in corso a Berlino. La 22enne torinese, dopo un primo tentativo nullo, ha ottenuto il pass con la misura di 58,73. La finale è in programma sabato.

"Sono felicissima, non m'importa ciò che è successo prima (la 22enne torinese di origini nigeriane si lascia definitivamente alle spalle l'aggressione subita dieci giorni fa a Moncalieri, dove era stata ferita a un occhio da un uovo lanciato da un'auto in corsa). Adesso sono in finale. Non so che dire, ho ancora i brividi. Non mi sarei mai aspettata di entrare in finale con la Q maiuscola che significa aver fatto il minimo per la finale e quindi non aspettare con le ansie il secondo gruppo". Così Daisy Osakue nella mixed zone dell'Olympiastadion di Berlino al termine della qualificazione del lancio del disco degli Europei di atletica leggera. La 22enne discobola torinese grazie ad un secondo lancio da 58,73 metri ha ottenuto la qualificazione diretta alla finale in programma sabato alle ore 20,20."E' la ciliegina sulla torta che mi serviva per dimenticare quello che è accaduto - ha commentato Daisy - E' bellissimo. Mi sentivo bene, per me la finale era un sogno. Il mio campionato europeo è iniziato alla grande e non vedo l'ora di divertirmi e di farvi divertire". La Osakue, in attesa dei risultati del gruppo B, è stata una delle tre atlete che ha già ottenuto la misura di qualificazione. Assieme all'italiana anche le tedesche Shanice Craft (61,13) e Claudine Vita (59,18).

KANO: At least 17 Nigerian soldiers were killed in a fresh Boko Haram attack on a military base in the country’s northeast, military sources told AFP Thursday, the third assault on three different bases in less than a month.
On Wednesday evening, heavily armed extremists riding in trucks stormed and looted weapons and vehicles from a military base in Garunda village in Borno State, the epicenter of the insurgency that has been raging for nine years.

          My Husband Deceived Me Into Marrying Him, Woman Tells Court      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The President of Mapo Customary Court in Ibadan, Oyo State,  Mr Suleiman Apanpan, on Thursday dissolved an eight-year-old marriage between  Aminat Olaniyi and Kassim Olaniyi over deception.

Apanpan held that the marriage was laid on a  deceitful foundation and it was bound to crash with time.

He, however,  advised lovers to make sincerity the watchword of their relationships. The court granted the custody of the two children produced by the union to Aminat and directed Kassim to pay a monthly allowance of N8, 000 to Aminat for the children’s upkeep.


“Kassim will also be responsible for the children’s education and other welfare,”Apanpan said.

Aminat had in her petition said that her husband deceived her into marrying by lying to her about what he was not.

“Before I eventually married Kassim, he never informed me that he had any children and when I found out that he did, he only admitted to having just one child.

“However, I later discovered that he had three children as against one,’’ she said.

Aminat also said that Kassim was not taking good care of the family.

She said that whenever he was returning home from work, he would buy beans cake (akara) and pap for the family which would serve as their meal for the day.

“On few occasions that he gave us money, it was just N200 for the children and me.

“He was fond of giving untenable excuses for his irresponsibility, but he could afford to have three children out of wedlock,”Aminat told the court.

However, the respondent who opposed the petition by his wife failed to advance convincing evidence for his argument.

Kassim, who resides at Ogbere-Ti-Oya area of Ibadan said that he was taking good care of his family to the best of his ability.

“Aminat received the best medical treatments when she was delivered of our babies.’’

Kassim said his wife’s problem was that she was always going to places in search of jobs.

“I warned Aminat to stay with me, but she deserted me when I was ill,’’ he said.

He said that he had the children Aminat referred to as children-out-of-wedlock during the three years that she abandoned him.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Aminat resides at Ipaja-Ayobo area of Lagos State.

          Expel Buhari, President Hiding In Your Country To Assault Nigeria’s Democracy, Secondus Tells UK      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Uche Secondus, has reacted to Tuesday’s siege that prevented members of staff and lawmakers from accessing the National Assembly.

He asked the United Kingdom (UK) to expel President Muhammadu Buhari, who he said, was hiding in that country to plan an assault on Nigeria’s democracy, adding that Britain should not allow anyone to turn that country into a haven of anti-democracy conspirators.

Secondus pointed out that President Buhari left the country to UK for a 10-day medical leave to enable their plans against democracy to be executed in his absence. He alleged that the final plan for the invasion of National Assembly was sealed when the Senate minority leader, Godswill Akpabio, visited the President in London at the weekend.

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

“I do not know what entered my body. It was a spirit. It told me to go and kill her. She did not offend me.”

The State Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Chidi Nwabuzor, stated that the Command received a distress call over the matter at about 8:30 am.

Nwabuzor also disclosed that the case had been transferred to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for further investigation.

Because "Mele Kalikimaka" is so difficult to pronounce
The left-leaning media is still hyperventilating about Russian interference with our election, going so far in some cases as to declare that we are no longer a free country and that Vladimir "Nice Pecs" Putin has successfully pulled off a massive coup d'etat. Apparently, his evil goal is to destroy us from within by facilitating the appointment of brain surgeons to cabinet positions.

All of which would seem considerably more like a terrifying existential crisis if Barack Obama cared enough to have skipped his annual bajillion-dollar Christmas getaway to the five-star environs of Hawaii. But there he is again, thousands of miles from the Oval Office - golfing, gnawing shave ice, eschewing any traditional symbols of Christmas or Christianity entirely, and (understandably) avoiding contact with family members as much as possible...

It's all the more impressive considering her deep sense of hopelessness.
Frankly, we're so sick of the first family and their wretched excesses that we pulled these cartoons out of the vault and can't really work up any enthusiasm about coming up with fresh ways to disparage them today. We're tired, we detest them, and we just want them gone.

Not that it's a bad start having them on Oahu. Which, by wild coincidence, is what we'll be shouting when they're escorted (hopefully forcefully) out of the White House on January 20th.

BONUS: A RANDOM HOLIDAY THOUGHT...
...to help us fill out the page at least a little more.
Seriously, why isn't PETA all over this?!
ADDITIONAL BONUS: YEP, IT'S MONDAY
Unlike sunny, expensive Oahu, it got darned cold in north Texas last night...and we've discovered that the pipes have frozen in one of the bathrooms. We've now got a heat lamp on the exterior wall, and a battery of space heaters and hair dryers blowing on the interior pipes (the area with the actual blockage can't be reached directly).

There is also a real sense of suspense, wondering if - at any moment - our bathroom faucet will simply return to normal operations...or we'll discover that a ruptured pipe is filling the walls of our home with water just in time for a randomly selected plumber to earn enough money for all of his Christmas shopping. And a Hawaiian vacation.

SO STILTON, HOW'S YOUR OBAMACARE DOING?
Thank you for asking. Healthcare.gov finally conceded my imaginary earning status for 2017 so that I could select another crappy, overpriced HMO plan - which I did.

And I assume all of that went smoothly, because last week I received six - count 'em - six new ID cards from Blue Cross. Three for me, and three for Mrs. Jarlsberg who isn't on the policy anymore.  Then on Saturday, I received two more ID's, both of which are in my name but showing different policy numbers.  So there's at least some chance that I now have 8 insurance policies.

None of which stopped Healthcare.gov from sending me daily reminders that I was not insured and needed to hurry to beat the cutoff deadline. Which they've now extended since the website (for the umpteenth time) failed to keep up with the traffic.

They've also let me know that I can pay my multiple insurance policies by giving them my banking information and letting their crack computers siphon money whenever they feel like it.  I'd sooner hand over my information to a Nigerian prince who wants to share his fortune.

(Noon Update: I swear on all that's Holy that I just got two more ID cards in today's mail.)

TRIPLE BONUS: MULLIGAN'S ISLAND
Not, of course, that there's anything wrong with that.

Prior to decolinization, Dugger explains, wigs and straightening had replaced much of the indigenous hair culture, and ‘Okhai Ojeikere’s documentations sought to celebrate traditional hairdos. More
