          B.C. Grand Chief urges action to ‘prevent catastrophic climate chaos’ as costs of Trans Mountain pipeline rise      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

VANCOUVER—The Union of BC Indian Chiefs says it’s “frustrated” and “outraged” that the estimated cost to build the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion is going up while the effects of climate change are being witnessed around the world.

“The Arctic Circle is burning in Sweden, intense wildfires are ripping through California, heat waves are breaking records across the world, 400 fires are raging in British Columbia,” said UBCIC Grand Chief Stewart Phillip in a release Thursday morning, “and the Canadian government wants to buy an overpriced 60-year-old leaky pipeline and build another one that will guarantee an expansion of greenhouse-gas pollution produced by the tarsands at a time when we should be hitting the emergency shutdown button to prevent catastrophic climate chaos.”

Documents filed with the United States Security and Exchange Commission this week show Kinder Morgan Canada estimates it will cost an additional $1.9 billion and take a year longer to build the new pipeline.

That would bring the price of the controversial construction project to $9.3 billion. The expansion would essentially twin the existing 1,100-km pipeline, triple the flow of oil from Alberta to the terminal in Burnaby, B.C., and result in a sevenfold increase in tanker traffic.

It’s fiercely opposed by environmental groups, some First Nations and the cities of Burnaby and Vancouver. But the federal government has gone so far as to promise to buy the pipeline to make sure it gets built, saying it’s in the national interest.

“It defies any form of rational responsible decision making that we as a country continue to embrace massive projects that will without question add to global warming,” said UBCIC Vice-President Bob Chamberlin in the release.

“The ballooning cost underlines the irresponsible decision making that Canadian taxpayers will bear the burden for generations to come,” he said, adding that Canada needs a comprehensive renewable energy strategy.

Sjö-Gunnarsbo sanatorium

Tuberculosis was once a widespread disease causing millions of deaths wherever it struck. Before the discovery of antibiotics, fresh air and nutritious food were believed to be the best treatment. Sweden, like many other countries, followed this recommendation and had sanatoriums built across the country.

Ivar Tengbom, a well-known Swedish architect in the early 20th century, was given the task of designing a tuberculosis sanatorium that would be located in the west of Sweden. Tengbom had personal experience with the disease, having lost two siblings and one of his lungs to the epidemic.

The Sjö-Gunnarsbo sanatorium was built between 1914 and 1916, and included many top modern facilities like an X-Ray machine, a laboratory, a light treatment room, and rooms where patients could swim. The building was fully electrified and featured water closets and clean drinking water from its own well.

The idea behind the treatment might have been well-intended, but unfortunately proved ineffective. Even under the best conditions, 50 percent of the patients entering the sanitarium would be dead within five years. The facility was eventually abandoned, and the buildings are now hauntingly empty.

          SIMBA IMEVUNA MKWANJA MREFU      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Wakati Simba ikitimiza miaka 82 tangu kuanzishwa kwake mwaka 1936, Championi Jumatano limefanya uchunguzi wake na kubaini kuwa, Simba ni kiboko ya Yanga kwa kujipatia fedha za kigeni kwa kuuza wach-ezaji nje ya nchi.

Tangu kuanza kwa karne hii ya 21, Simba imefanikiwa kuuza nje ya nchi zaidi ya wachezaji 11 tena kwa vitita vikubwa.

Kwa upande wa Yanga, wao wameonekana ni vinara wa kutoa wachezaji kwa majaribio kama si kuondoka bure.

Edibily Lunyamila, Bakari Malima, Jery Tegete, Dan Mrwanda, Mrisho Ngassa na wengine wengi wote wameonja raha  ya kimataifa wakitokea Yanga lakini si kwa kuuzwa.

Ifuatayo ni orodha ya wachezaji waliotoboa kimataifa kwa  Yanga na Simba, ingawa baadhi thamani zao hazikuweza kupatikana kutokana na ujanjaujanja wa viongozi wa klabu hizo.

Upande wa Yanga ni:-

Shaban Nonda

Anatajwa kuwa mchezaji wa heshima kwa Yanga akiwa ni mchezaji pekee aliyepata mafanikio makubwa katika historia ya klabu hiyo.

Nonda ambaye ni raia wa DR Congo alijiunga na Yanga akitokea Atletico Olympic mwaka 1993, lakini mwaka 1994 Yanga ilimuuza kwa timu ya Vaal Professional ya Afrika Kusini kwa dola 10,000 (zaidi ya Sh milioni 20 kwa kiwango cha sasa).

Mbali na timu hizo, pia Nonda alizitumikia timu kubwa barani Ulaya zikiwemo Blackburn Rovers ya England na Monaco ya Ufaransa.



Said Maulid ‘SMG’

Mwaka 2008, Yanga ilimuuza nyota huyo kwa  Klabu ya Onze Bravos Dos Marquis ya Angola baada ya kuvutiwa na kiwango chake. Waangola hao waliipatia Yanga kitita cha dola 50,000 (zaidi ya milioni 100 kwa sasa)



Nadir Haroub ‘Cannavaro’ 

Mwaka 2009 alipata dili nje ya nchi, baada ya kutolewa kwa mkopo wa malipo ya dola 3,000 (zaidi ya Sh 6,000,000 kwa sasa) katika timu ya Vancouver White Caps ya Canada. Hata hivyo hakudumu sana, kwani baada ya muda mfupi alirejea Bongo.



Simoni Msuva

Huyu ndiye mchezaji wa mwisho wa Yanga kuuzwa nje ya nchi, aliuzwa kwa Klabu ya Difaa Al Jadida ya nchini Morocco kwa dola 150,000 ( zaidi ya Sh milioni 350).

Upande wa Simba idadi ya waliotoboa ni kubwa.



Nteze John ‘Rungu’

Straika huyu mzaliwa wa Kigoma baada ya kuonyesha makeke akiwa na kikosi hicho kwenye michuano ya kitaifa na kimataifa, alifanikiwa kupata dili na kujiunga na timu ya Qwaqwa ya Afrika Kusini ambayo ni Free States kwa sasa, dau lake lilikuwa siri.



Mohamed Mwameja

Katika miaka ya 1990, Simba walikubali kumwachia na kwenda kujiunga na timu ya Jomo Cosmos ya Afrika Kusini.



Hata hivyo akiwa Afrika Kusini, Mwameja alifanikiwa kuuzwa Reading iliyokuwa inashiriki Ligi Kuu England, lakini alikosa kibali cha kufanya kazi nchini humo baada ya uongozi wa Reading kuomba uthibitisho kama kweli ni Mtanzania, hakucheza.



Selemani Matola 

Matola ambaye kwa sasa ni Kocha Mkuu wa Lipuli FC, aliuzwa kwenda Klabu ya Super Sport ya Afrika Kusini kwa kitita cha dola 20,000 (zaidi ya Sh milioni 40 kiwango cha sasa).



Patrick Ochan

Kiungo huyu raia wa Uganda alikuwa mhimili mzuri katika kikosi cha Simba katika miaka nane iliyopita lakini uongozi wa klabu hiyo uliamua kumuuza kwa timu ya TP Mazembe ya DR Congo kwa kitita cha dola 50,000 (Sh Milioni 130 viwango vya sasa).



Haruna Moshi ‘Boban’

Nyota huyu anaichezea African Lyon kwa sasa, Simba iliwahi kumuuza barani Ulaya kwa timu ya Gifle IF ya Sweden kwa dau la dola 50,000 ( Sh milioni 130 kwa sasa).

Mbwana Samatta

Simba ilimuuza kwa TP Mazembe kwa kitita cha dola 100,000 (zaidi ya Sh milioni 260 kwa sasa).

Emmanuel Okwi

Simba pia iliwahi kuumuza Okwi kwa Klabu ya Etoile du Sahel ya Tunisia kwa dola laki tatu (300,000) (zaidi ya Sh milioni 680 kwa sasa).



Mwinyi Kazimoto

Aliuzwa Al Markhya ya Qatar kwa kitita cha dola 50,000 (zaidi ya Sh milioni 130 kwa sasa).



Shomari Kapombe

Aliuzwa AS Cannes ya Ufaransa kwa Euro 30,000,  zaidi ya Sh milioni 75 kwa sasa).

Moses Odhiambo

Alitua APR ya Rwanda kwa dola 50,000 (za Sh 130 kwa sasa),

Victor Costa

Alienda Meritzburg United ya Afrika Kusini. Dau halikutajwa

Henry Joseph

Alisajiliwa na Kongsvinger ya Norway. Naye dau halikutajwa.


Angalizo: Orodha hii haijumuishi wachezaji waliokwenda kwa ajili ya kufanya majaribio, bali waliofanikiwa kuingia mikataba ya timu za nje.






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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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



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

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

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

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

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








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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Many illegal driving schools detected in Sweden

Europe

DF-Xinhua Report

A report by the Swedish National Road and Transport Research Institute (VTI) shows that the number of illegal driving schools and methods to cheat in theory tests is increasing in the country, the Swedish Television SVT reported on Thursday.

   According to the report, the number of illegal driving school has increased even though the number of teaching permissions is 15 students per supervisor.

   The illegal activity includes most of all private driving lessons, but there have also been cases where earpieces and cameras have been used to cheat in theory tests. Students have also acquired certificates by mere payment.

   "The cheating is widespread, refined and thoughtfully planned," VTI researcher Sonja Forward told SVT.

   Forward says that because nobody takes responsibility for the illegal activity, it is easy to do it without getting caught. The report shows that approximately 3,400 cars in Sweden have dual pedals even though they are not registered to be used as a driving school car.

   VTI proposes that the problem could be tackled by investigating how dual pedal cars are actually used. Higher fines, better co-operation between authorities and decreasing the number of teaching permissions are also suggested as a solution.

          Mohamed Omar, Det Goda Samhället: Vi Gillar Inte Sharia, Men Följder Den Ändå - 2017.07.31      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache

VI GILLAR INTE SHARIA, MEN FÖLJER DEN ÄNDÅ


Från texten:

Enligt traditionell sharia, islamisk lag, ska kvinnor och män hållas åtskilda. Kvinnor ska inte ”visa sina behag”, inte skratta högt, ja, inte uppträda på något sätt som kan ”fresta” män. En god hustru ska bara gå ut om det är nödvändigt och bara med sin makes tillstånd. Hon får heller inte resa utan en manlig anhörig som ”övervakare”. Hon ska lyda sin man som är husets herre och mopsar hon upp sig har han rätt att aga henne.
Motsatsen till en anständig kvinna blir då sådana kvinnor som ”visar sina behag” och både skrattar och pratar med manliga vänner, kollegor och andra medmänniskor. Den oanständiga kvinnan rör sig fritt ute utan manlig övervakare. Motsatsen till en god hustru blir en hustru som vill leva jämställt med maken, ett förhållande där båda är myndiga och fattar beslut tillsammans.
Kvinnosynen i sharia finns inte bara finns i gamla islamiska skrifter utan som förkunnas än idag i moskéer världen över, även i svenska. Det beror på att i moskéerna förkunnar man att Koranen innehåller tidlös ledning för hur livet ska levas och inte får ifrågasättas. Man förkunnar också att profeten Muhammed är varje muslims förebild och lärare.
Den genomsnittlige, moderne svensken har värderingar som skiljer sig diametralt från värderingarna i traditionell islam. Islam är den minst omtyckta religionen i Sverige. Ändå ser vi tecken på att Sverige blir mer likt islamvärlden. Det sker en anpassning till den kvinnosyn som finns i sharia. Det beror alltså inte på att svenskar tycker om islam. Det beror på att invandrare med bakgrund i islamvärlden och en mentalitet präglad av sharia kommer till Sverige och påverkar vårt sätt att leva.
...
Svenskar i Sverige, icke-muslimer, riskerar att anpassa sitt beteende efter sharia. Fast de inte tror på sharia. Vissa badhus undviks av kvinnor sedan de tagits över av unga män med en mentalitet präglad av sharia. Eller så går man inte dit utan en bror eller far som kan ”skydda” dem. För gängen tenderar att låta kvinnor med manligt sällskap vara i fred.
På samma sätt riskerar gruppvåldtäkterna där invandrarmän, ofta med islamisk bakgrund, förgriper sig på svenska kvinnor, att göra så att kvinnor inte vågar röra sig fritt. Svenska kvinnor kan känna sig tvungna gå ut mindre eller att ha med sig en manlig vän eller släkting. Så får tvingas på hederskultur och sharianormer utan att egentligen ha velat ha dem.
En händelse: i augusti 2015 utsattes en svensk kvinna i Strängnäs för två överfallsvåldtäkter samma natt. Våldtäktsmännen var två asylsökande män från Syrien och Algeriet. En av dem spottade kvinnan i ansiktet och sa: ”I’m gonna fuck you, little Swedish girl”.
Tänk om grupper av svenska män hade våldtagit en invandrarkvinna – hur hade reaktionerna blivit då? Hade det inte blivit stora rubriker? Hade inte antirasisterna protesterat? Tänk dig sedan att dessa gruppvåldtäkter hade skett en gång i månaden, år efter år. Bristen på reaktion när svenska kvinnor våldtas, ofta med rasistiska förtecken, av grupper av invandrarmän, tyder på att svensken håller på att bli något av andra klassens medborgare i sitt eget land. En svensk, otrogen kvinna är mindre värd än en muslimsk, ”anständig” kvinna. Precis som det är i sharia.
På senare tid har sexövergrepp på festivaler fått en del uppmärksamhet. Det handlar i stort sett alltid om män med invandrarbakgrund som ger sig på svenska tjejer och kvinnor. Festivaler som bara etniska svenskar går på, som hårdrocksfestivalen Sweden Rock utanför Sölvesborg, har inte detta problem. Vad blir följden av alla dessa övergrepp? Jo, att svenska tjejer tvekar inför att gå på festivaler eller att de går dit med manliga beskyddare. De börjar alltså bete sig mer som kvinnorna i länder där sharia råder.
Enligt sharia får man inte avbilda profeten Muhammed. Och man får absolut inte göra narr av honom. Detta är två förbud som svensken tagit till sig. Medierna i Sverige skulle aldrig publicera en karikatyr av Muhammed. Inte för att de respekterar Muhammed eller tror att han var en riktig profet, utan för att de är rädda. De vet hur det gick för redaktionen på den franska tidningen Charlie Hebdo – den massakrerades av jihadister. Det är fritt fram att häckla kristendomen, men inte islam. Just som det är i länder där sharia råder.
I sharia finns ingen religionsfrihet, man får inte lämna islam. I islamiska länder kallas de som lämnar islam för ”murtad”, och kan fängslas eller avrättas. I Sverige kallas de islamofober, om de uttrycker sin otro öppet, som till exempel den somaliska kvinnan Mona Walter. En person som i Sverige lämnar islam kan råka ut för misshandel, hot och utfrysning från familjen. En kvinna som tar av sig slöjan kan bli mördad. Det har hänt. För många muslimer är den svenska religionsfriheten bara ord utan mening. I praktiken är det oerhört svårt att lämna islam. Familjen, grannarna, landsmännen, församlingen i moskén bestämmer vem du är.
Kvällen den 24 augusti 2015 sände Aktuellt ett reportage från Rinkeby. Reportern befann sig på torget med den somaliska ex-muslimen Mona Walter. Ett gäng aggressiva ungdomar skrek ”Det här är inte Sverige!” och ”Hora!”
Det här är inte Sverige, sa de. De har rätt. För i Sverige får man lämna islam. I Sverige behöver inte en kvinna inte gå i heltäckande kläder. Rinkeby liknar nu mer islamvärlden än Sverige. Som imamen sade i sin föreläsning Kvinnan i islam: den choklad som är utan förpackning tar flugorna.
Islam är den minst omtyckta religionen i Sverige och extremt få etniska svenskar konverterar. Ändå sker denna anpassning till sharia, islamisk lag. Det beror på att invandrade muslimer blir fler och börjar sätta sin prägel på omgivningen. Antal är styrka. Med amerikansk kultur är det tvärtom. Den sprids i Sverige helt utan hjälp av invandring från Amerika. Det är en omtyckt kultur som folk vill ha. Det går att sälja biljetter till halloweenfester, ytterst få svenskar skulle dock betala för att vara med på en eidfest – de skulle inte ens gå gratis.
Man påverkas av de kulturer man gillar och ser upp till. Det är därför svenskar påverkas av amerikansk kultur. Men tyvärr påverkas man också av kulturer man inte gillar. Det är fallet när svenskars beteende anpassas till sharia på grund av att muslimska invandrare med shariavärderingar växer i antal och uppträder aggressivt.

          Oncology Information System Market expands with the aging population      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
(EMAILWIRE.COM, August 09, 2018 ) Elements along with increasing government initiatives for modernization of healthcare infrastructure, developing affected person populace, and rising focus of worldwide and home gamers within the Asia-Pacific location are propelling growth on this marketplace.

The increase of the oncology information machine marketplace is pushed via elements inclusive of unexpectedly ageing population, rising number of cancer cases, and increasing recognition at the development of technologically superior OIS throughout the globe.

Gillhög is a passage grave dating back to the Neolithic just north of Malmö, Sweden and directly west of the small Swedish town of Barsebäck. The tomb is located beside a small house and is open to the public. The mound surrounding the tomb is visible from a distance as one approaches the site. The passage is about 6 metres in length and leads into a single burial chamber made from megalithic stones. The tomb is enterable and information signs are at the site. Two stone cists (stone coffins) were also found at the site and were placed near the edge of the mound.

Klinkehög is a burial mound located in Båstad, Sweden and dates back to the Bronze Age. The mound has never been excavated and the bodies buried within the mound are highly likely still within the mound. The mound was also used as a burial ground during the Iron Age.

The mound is located on a small piece of land between the main road though Båstad and next to shops and apartments. The mound looks like a small hill in the middle of a small town. The site has an information sign at the bottom of the mound.

          Julian Assange 'Seriously Considering' Testifying Before Senate Panel       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is "seriously considering" a request to testify in person before the U.S. Senate intelligence committee about Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, according to a statement from his lawyer.

Assange has been holed up at Ecuador's embassy in London since 2012, in part over fears that he could be extradited to the U.S. and potentially face trial over leaking massive troves of documents.

On Wednesday, the WikiLeaks Twitter account posted a letter that it says was delivered to Assange via the U.S. Embassy in London. The purported document is signed by committee Chairman Richard Burr and Vice Chairman Mark Warner and asks that Assange "make yourself available for a closed interview with bipartisan Committee staff at a mutually agreeable time and location" as part of the probe.

Spokespeople for Burr and Warner declined to comment on whether the document is authentic.

"We are seriously considering the offer but must ensure Mr Assange's protection is guaranteed," WikiLeaks lawyer Jennifer Robinson of Doughty Street Chambers said in a statement.

It's not clear when or where the interview might take place, or precisely what kind of guarantees Assange is seeking.

As NPR noted, WikiLeaks published nearly 20,000 emails from the Democratic National Committee prior to the election. Here's more:

"Those emails revealed that some senior DNC staffers had worked to promote the candidacy of Hillary Clinton over her opponent Bernie Sanders. Four DNC officials resigned in the aftermath, including its chair, Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz."

The U.S. intelligence community "is confident that the Russian Government directed the recent compromises of e-mails from US persons and institutions, including from US political organizations," according to a statement on election security from the Department of Homeland Security and Office of the Director of National Intelligence.

Last month, the Justice Department indicted 12 Russian intelligence officials on charges related to interference in the election, including the hacking of Democratic National Committee emails.

In an interview with NPR in 2016, Assange described those emails as a "great journalistic scoop."

Assange no longer faces potential charges from Sweden — last year the country announced it was dropping its investigation into allegations of sex crimes, including rape. But as NPR has noted, there's an outstanding arrest warrant for him in the U.K. for "failing to surrender in court."

Ecuador confirmed that it granted him citizenship earlier this year to try to resolve the situation, according to the BBC. Still, tensions between Ecuador and Assange appear to be rising.

As NPR reported in March, Ecuador disconnected Assange's access to the Internet after it accused him of jeopardizing its relationships with other countries because of his posts on social media.

Ecuador's president, Lenin Moreno, is less friendly to Assange than was his predecessor. According to Reuters, last month he "confirmed that Ecuador and Britain were in talks to try to end his stay at the embassy."

Assange is also apparently in poor health, according to the doctors caring for him. In an article for The Guardian, they said "it is our professional opinion that his continued confinement is dangerous physically and mentally to him, and a clear infringement of his human right to healthcare."

Sweden reports more European viper attacks

DF-Xinhua Report

Sweden had reported 350 cases of European viper attacks so far this year, in comparison to 175 cases for the same period of last year, the Swedish Television SVT reported on Thursday.

   "Usually we receive information of 220 to 250 cases in one year, so there is a significant increase this year," attending physician Sune Forsberg at the Swedish Poison Information Centre told SVT.

   According to him, most victims suffer local pain that lasts for a while. Some also feel nauseous, and get stomachaches and low blood pressure.

   Thomas Thunmark, who has been collecting and cleanings snakes since the late 90's, said to SVT that the number of vipers has increased due to the mild winter.

   "In central Sweden, many of the young vipers survived over the winter since it never became really cold. In northern Sweden the snakes were protected by the snow," he said.

   European viper bites can be very painful but are seldom fatal and in Sweden no one has died of it since 1996. However, attending physician Sune Forsberg reminds the public to always visit a hospital if been bitten.

          IKEA opens India's first store in Hyderabad      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

[India], Aug 09 (ANI): Customers thronged IKEA's first store in India as it was inaugurated in Hyderabad on Thursday.

John Achillea, IKEA's Managing Director for Telangana, Telangana's IT Minister K. T. Rama Rao and other key individuals of the Sweden-based furniture retail company inaugurated the store.

Speaking to ANI, Achillea said, "I am so excited today, we can see so many customers visiting in the building. It's just a phenomenal feeling. We have every product under one roof, so whether you are looking for a sofa, bed, children's furniture, or home accessories for every room, it's all under one roof."

He further stated that the store would house 7,500 products and will be operational from 10 am to 11 pm every day of the year.

Meanwhile, IKEA's food manager for India, Henrik Osterstrom, said, "I am super delighted that finally, the store has opened, we were working on it since 2013. We have decided that food is important for IKEA and it is important for India as well, so that's why we have the biggest restaurant in the Hyderabad store."

"We have two kinds of dishes available; one is with the unique Swedish identity and local dishes from India. Everyone in Hyderabad likes biryani so we included that, along with dal makhani, samosas and other things as well," he added.

The restaurant can accommodate nearly a thousand people and is one of the biggest restaurants among all IKEA's in-store restaurants worldwide.

Customers who visited the IKEA store said that they had heard a lot about it, with some saying they had been waiting since the past six months for the store to open, expressing their delight over visiting the world-renowned furniture retail chain. (ANI)


          Jacob Schiff Ordered Czar and Family Murdered       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   



THE SCHIFF TELEGRAM.jpg

Illuminati Jewish banker Jacob Schiff 
pulled the strings on the "Russian" Revolution, 
including the savage murder of Czar Nicholas II
and his family in July 1918. 
The same power is behind the New World Order.





from July 9, 2011
by Krister
(henrymakow.com)

In July 1918, Illuminati Jewish banker Jacob Schiff sent a direct order
thru US diplomatic channels to the Bolsheviks in Russia to murder Czar Nicholas II and his family.

sign.jpegThis very hidden historical fact, as well as the decision-making process behind the murder of the Czar's family, is described in the book "Under The Sign Of The Scorpion" by Jyri Lina. Below is a short excerpt:

The order to murder the Tsar and his family actually came from New York. Lenin had hardly any say in the matter. The Bolsheviks had been forced to flee from Yekaterinburg in such haste that they had no time to destroy all the telegraph strips. Those strips were later found in the telegraph house. Nikolai Sokolov [author of a detailed investigation carried out in 1919 under the authority of "White" (anti-Communist) leader Alexander Kolchak] took care of them but could not decipher the telegrams. This was done only in 1922 by a group of experts in Paris. Sokolov then discovered that the strips were extremely revealing since they dealt with the murder of the Tsar and his family.

The chairman of the Central Executive Committee, Yakov Sverdlov, sent a message to Yakov Yurovsky where he relayed that after he had told Jacob Schiff in New York about the approach of the White army, he had received orders from Schiff to liquidate the Tsar and his entire family at once. This order was delivered to Sverdlov by the American Representation, which then lay in the town of Vologda.


200px-Nicholas_II_of_Russia,_photograph.jpg(left, Nicholas II, 1868- July 17, 1918) 

Sverdlov ordered Yurovsky to carry out this order. But on the following day, Yurovsky wanted to check whether the order really applied to the whole family or just to the head of the family, the Tsar. Sverdlov then told him that the entire family was to be eliminated. Yurovsky was responsible for the order being carried out.


So Lenin did not decide any of this himself. The Jewish historian Edvard Radzinsky has tried to assert that it was Lenin who gave the orders to murder the Tsar and his family. But no such telegram has been found in the archives. Radzinsky's explanation that Lenin had this telegram destroyed does not hold water, since there is a vast amount of compromising material about Lenin otherwise. Why should he have destroyed only this particular telegram and no other equally incriminatory documents?


In November 1924, Sokolov told a close friend that his publisher was afraid to print these sensitive facts in his book. They were censored out. Sokolov showed his friend the original strips and the deciphered translations. Sokolov died suddenly one month later. He was to have traveled to the United States to give evidence in favour of Henry Ford in Kuhn, Loeb & Co's lawsuit against the car magnate who had published his book "The International Jew".


Sokolov's book "The Murder of the Tsar's Family" was published in Berlin in 1925 without the aforementioned information. These facts were made public only in 1939, in the exile periodical Tsarsky Vestnik. Jacob Schiff s role in those murders was described in Russia only in 1990
.

- End of excerpt pp.276-277


The above revealing and extremely dangerous information about the REAL perpetrators of Communism is probably the main reason that "Under the Sign of the Scorpion"  is so heavily suppressed, as not possible to buy in book-shops and sabotaged by Amazon.com by a high price (today $123.00). Not only the book, but also its author is suppressed.

Jyri Lina, a former Estonian who now lives in 'liberal' Sweden, has found that freedom of expression, at least for him, has a very limited value. He's now again facing the situation of having to hold secret underground lectures for small groups, as in his 'old' days in Soviet-Estonia, before the KGB gave him the option to emigrate or go to KGB-prison.

In US, the book can be ordered from Texe Marrs or in Canada from Reino Trass. This book, as well as other books and films by the author, can also be ordered directly from the author.

1917_Nikolai_Sokolov_02.jpgNikolai Alexéïevitch Sokolov was born in Mokshane, near Penza in 1882. After teaching law in Karkov, he became a judge and judicial investigator. As he did not want to serve the Bolsheviks, he fled to Omsk in Siberia. With other monarchist people, he took part in several attempts to free the Romanov family without success. On February 7, 1919, he was officially appointed by Admiral Kolchak admiral to investigate the Romanovs' murder. In 1920, on the White army's defeat, Sokolov left Russia and emigrated to the small city of Salbris in France. (41300 - Loir et Cher). Sick and without resources, he had just time to finish to write the results of his investigation before dying on November 23, 1924, leaving a 23-year-old widow and two little children. The same year, his book "Enquête judiciaire sur l'assassinat de la famille impériale Russe" (In French) was published by Payot. In this book, he concluded that the whole Romanov family has been murdered in Ipatiev house and their bodies cremated.

Ryanair is bracing for its biggest-ever one-day strike on Friday with pilots based in five European countries set to walk out, forcing the cancellation of about one in six of its daily flights at the height of the holiday season.

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

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


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

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


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

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

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

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


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

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

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

Actor and Man United fan Dominic Monaghan enters the Heineken Boot Room to chat about and give his impression of Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Zlatan Ibrahimovic says he has a clear favourite among the nearly 500 goals in his career -- his spectacular overhead volley from distance against England in 2012. The striker scored four goals in the game, including three in the final 12 minutes, to help Sweden win the friendly, but it will be the last strike that will be remembered long after his career is over.

Don't give up on hope. 


A daily column on what the ALP have as a policy, supported by a local member, and how it has 'helped' the local community. I'll stop if I cannot identify a policy. Feel free to make suggestions. Contact me on FB, not twitter. I have twitter, but never look at it.

Gabrielle Williams was appointed Parliamentary Secretary for Carers and Volunteers, working with the Minister for Housing, Disability and Ageing and the Minister for Families and Children. 



As part of the November 24th Vic election campaign I have a petition I want to bring before the Opposition Leader Matthew Guy. I believe Matthew will be the next premier of Victoria and so I am petitioning him as I raise the issues of Employment, Crime and Education in Dandenong. I am also seeking money for my campaign. I don't have party resources, and so my campaign is on foot, and on the internet. Any money I receive that is not spent on the campaign will go to Grow 4 Life. I am asking questions like "What do you love about Dandenong?" and "If you could change something in Dandenong to make it better, what would it be?" I'm not limiting the questions to state issues. I'm happy to discuss anything, and get things done.



I am a decent man and don't care for the abuse given me. I created a video raising awareness of anti police feeling among western communities. I chose the senseless killing of Nicola Cotton, a Louisiana policewoman who joined post Katrina, to highlight the issue. I did this in order to get an income after having been illegally blacklisted from work in NSW for being a whistleblower. I have not done anything wrong. Local council appointees refused to endorse my work, so I did it for free. Youtube's Adsence refused to allow me to profit from their marketing it. Meanwhile, I am hostage to abysmal political leadership and hopeless journalists. My shopfront has opened on Facebook.

Here is a video I made Big Heart

Big Heart is two stories, originally titled 'Beating Heart' and 'Broken Heart.'
Sam is 14 years old, and dreams of making it big in the world. Only thing is, he gets no respect at school or at home. He has friends that deal in drugs, and he thinks he might make a success of it, but then people begin to die and Sam needs to work fast to escape the hole he has dug himself.

Some things should not happen, but they do. Victoria's opposition leader, Matthew Guy had a dinner with a guy banned from a casino and the ALP are demanding he resign and accusing him of consorting with gangsters. The denunciation is almost funny coming from anyone connected with the CFMEU. Almost. There is something behind the attack that hasn't been widely circulated, partly because it is before a court and in all likelihood, many frontline ALP members of parliament will be forced to resign for abuse of power in office. It involves the Red Shirt Brigade who support ALP by handing out how to vote cards, door knocking, phoning constituents and so on. Red shirts are supposed to be volunteers, and by electoral office rules, if they are paid by members, are restricted to that member's area. Only ALP offices have been paying their red shirts sums like $48 an hour and they have been acting outside their jurisdiction. I'll quote Matthew Guy from parliament on 8th March 2017. "Mr GUY (Leader of the Opposition) — Premier, you lead a chaotic, scandal-ridden government and a party that has seen three ministers, a whip and two Presiding Officers all forced to resign: Steve Herbert from the Legislative Council chauffeured his dogs from one end of the state to the other; your two former Presiding Officers perpetrate the biggest expenses rort in Victorian political history; the massive red shirt rorting of electorate office budgets; and millions of dollars spent on legal fees trying to stop the Ombudsman investigating these rorts. On top of all of that, Premier, you have allowed yourself to be blackmailed by the United Firefighters Union and Peter Marshall. Premier, is your government chaotic, incompetent, negligent or all of the above?" There is a court investigating the Red Shirt Brigade issue, and it is due to report soon. And the ALP know the findings will be damning. And all the ALP can do is complain about a lobster dinner engaged in public? 

At the battle of Lechfield in 955 Hungarians claimed to be Europeans, Germans disputed it, and won. In 991 at the Battle of Maldon, in Essex, Vikings faced Aethelred the Unready and won 3,300 Kg of silver. In 1270 Yekuno Amlak took the imperial throne of Ethiopia, restoring the Solomonic dynasty to power after a 100-year Zagwe interregnum. In 1316, the second battle of Athenry between Irish forces resulted in an Irish loss. No survivors wrote an account. Many lost their heads. In 1512, at the Battle of Saint-Mathieu, England's Henry VIII had a naval victory, but both the flagships blew up. Possibly the first engagement using port cannon. In 1519 Magellan set off on a round the world trip. He died en-route. His birthplace is disputed as to changeovers between Spain and Portugal. He might have been Palestinian. In 1628, Sweden built the magnificent Vasa, which sank twenty minutes into her maiden voyage. In 1675, desperate to know the correct time, the cornerstone to Royal Greenwich Observatory was laid. In 1776, the Declaration of independence reached London. In 1792 in the French Revolution Louis XVI was arrested and his entire bodyguard killed. The next year, the Musée du Louvre was opened. In 1846, the Smithsonian was chartered by the US Congress. In 1904 the Russians and Japanese faced off at the Battle of Yellow Sea and had a draw. In 1932, a meteorite weighing 5.1kg landed in Missouri. In 1948, Candid Camera made a tv debut a year after Candid Microphone began on Radio. In 1969, A day after murdering Sharon Tate and four others, members of Charles Manson's cult killed Leno and Rosemary LaBianca. In 1977, David Berkowitz was arrested, he was called the Son of Sam, and he had killed people at random. In 1981, the head of Adam Walsh was found. Adam was six years old and his death prompted his dad to start America's Most Wanted. In 1988, Reagan began paying compensation to living Japanese Americans detained in WW2 by signing the Civil Liberties act of 1988. In 1990, the Magellan space probe reached Venus, four hundred and seventy one years after Magellan set forth on a circumnavigation. In 1995, Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nicholls were indicted for the Oklahoma Bombing. In 2003, the highest temperature ever recorded in the UK, 38.5 degrees centigrade was reached. It has been cooler ever since. On the same day, a couple married in space, but there is no evidence they were gay.

#AusCensusFail16 is another humiliation for the Turnbull government. A Benghazi type announcement blamed hackers for the planned failure. The agile, nimble, clever Turnbull government spent millions of dollars demonstrating it could not be trusted to implement online elections. What ultimately happened was that people attempted to complete the forms after work, before the evening got underway. So about 7PM Eastern Standard time, just after Turnbull tweeted he had successfully lodged his contribution to the census, the system crashed and twenty six hours later is still down. The data will never now be completed. Important data needed for planning. The Turnbull government had no agenda. This is just one of many humiliations for Turnbull before his inevitable resignation. And it is a salient lesson for those who are thinking of voting for Hillary Clinton. She too has no agenda to better the people she wants to vote for her. Corruption is not a plan for improvement. 

For some, at the moment, the Sex Party has more credibility.

ALP looks to have prospered through her abuse of power over the expenses scandal. To cap it off, the media protectors of the ALP have gloated. Claims are made that the new speaker will be fair, suggesting the previous one wasn't. But it was the ALP abusing power which got some four hundred evictions of her members under the previous speaker, Bronwyn Bishop. The attacks on Bishop, given that no one else is held to the same standard, is misogynistic. Tony Burke, as leader of opposition business locked horns with Bishop a lot and so he had a vested interest in lying to trash her career as Speaker. Burke and Shorten should resign, but instead get a poll bounce in their favour. One hopes that Mr Abbott is keeping this ace for an election. 
From 2014
It looked like a stunt when Jason Clare announced an inquest into sports drugs and gambling. Clare was deflecting attention away from the leadership challenge within the ALP which outsiders called between Rudd and Gillard but which also included Wong, Combet, Shorten, Clare, Carr, and a half dozen other cowards. Apparently, nothing was meant to happen, although two major codes and a few clubs and many players and trainers were smeared, called drug cheats and or forced out of the game. It looks like politicians tried to railroad athletes into admitting guilt. In the US, Obama has done much the same, for similar reasons. No player in any sport has been found guilty of what Clare claimed was endemic to all sports. In related news, the ALP has no policy on anything, but opposes everything the government proposes. When the LNP were in opposition, they supported 80% of the legislation. But the difference is in the monitoring. ABC criticise the 18C backdown even as they denied the need for change.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Upcoming Webinar to Discuss Volkswagen Securities Litigation and Other Litigation Developments Involving Non-U.S. Companies: On Thursday October 15, 2015, I will be participating in a webinar entitled “Volkswagen and the Emergence of D&O Litigation Involving Non-US Companies.” The free one-hour webinar, which is being sponsored by Advisen, will take place at 11 am EDT. The webinar will focus on the issues raised by the investor lawsuit recently filed in the U.S. against Volkswagen, as well as by the efforts to launch investor claims against Volkswagen in the Netherlands and Germany. The webinar will also discuss investor litigation that has been filed both inside and outside the U.S. in the wake of scandals involving Petrobras, Tesco and Toshiba. The other speakers at the webinar will include Alexander Reus of the DRRT law firm (which has offices in the U.S. and in Germany); Albert Knigge, of the  Houthoff Buruma law firm (Amsterdam); and Kimberly Cole of the Kobre & Kim law firm (New York). Jim Blinn of Advisen will moderate the panel. Information about the webinar, including registration instructions, can be found here.

          Sweden: CPIF-inflation stood at 2.2% in July – Nordea Markets      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Andreas Wallström, Research Analyst at Nordea Markets, notes that Sweden’s CPIF-inflation stood at 2.2% in July, well in line with expectations and the prices for services inflation declined.

Key Quotes

“Core inflation (CPIF ex energy) came in at 1.3%, which is 0.1% points below the Riksbank’s view.”

“Prices for services inflation, important for the Riksbank, declined somewhat further.”

“We forecast core inflation to gradually increase until reaching to 2.0% during spring 2019. This is fully in line with the Riksbank’s forecast.”

“Thereafter, however, we expect inflation to fall back to its historical average at 1.5% while the Riksbank sees inflation stabilizing at 2.0%.”

“While July headline inflation in Denmark is set to decline due to base effects, it will increase modestly in Sweden to 2.3% (from 2.2% in June), while the increase will be more pronounced in Norway rising from 2.6% in June to 2.9% in July.”

“US CPI core index likely rose +0.2% m/m in line with the recent trend, leaving the inflation rate unchanged at 2.3% y/y.”

“The first estimate of UK GDP growth in Q2 is due out today, which we expect to show that growth rebounded to 0.4% q/q from 0.2% q/q in Q1.”

“In the emerging market space, look out for developments in the relationship between Russia and Turkey on the one side and the US on the other, in relation to the recent US sanctions against the two countries, which has caused a slump in their assets.”

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

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

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



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

Ég vil fara í herbergið þitt og sjá pylsuna þína













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

Haluan mennä huoneeseesi ja nähdä makkaraasi

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









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














5.  Norway has won many swimming records.



















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



















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
















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










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



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

          Europe: A True Obstacle to Middle East Peace - by Daniel Krygier       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Europe’s policies have systematically undermined any prospects of peace in the Middle East. Instead of promoting a conclusion of the conflict, Europe has perpetuated it for ideological and commercial reasons.

Daniel Krygier..
MiDA..
09 August '18..
Link: https://en.mida.org.il/2018/08/09/europe-is-an-obstacle-to-middle-east-peace/

After centuries of colonialism and the devastating Second World War, Europe emerged as a self-appointed superpower of peace and human rights. However, instead of supporting peaceful sister democracies like Israel, the EU has increasingly sided with despotic terrorist regimes like Iran and PLO. By betraying Israel, Europe is ultimately betraying itself and its own fundamental values.

The European Union and the Foreign Ministers of Germany, Britain and France recently declared their opposition to renewed US sanctions against Iran as a result of Tehran’s imperial aggression. This follows an all too predictable pattern where European declarations and deeds do not match.

For a variety of reasons, Europe has devoted more resources and focus on the Arab-Israeli conflict than to any other conflict in the world. In an era when the so-called Arab Spring quickly transformed into a lethal Islamist Winter, Europe continues clinging to the debunked myth of the Arab-Israeli conflict as the mother of all conflicts.

After the Islamist terrorist attacks in Paris in 2015, Sweden’s Foreign Minister Margot Wallström linked the ISIS attacks to the Arab-Israeli conflict. Throughout the years, numerous European officials have declared that solving the Arab-Israeli conflict is a strategic European interest. However, in practice, European policies have systematically undermined any prospects of genuine peace between Arabs and Israelis. Instead of promoting a conclusion of the conflict, Europe has perpetuated it for ideological and commercial reasons.

Europe has painfully experienced the staggering costs of lethal propaganda through Nazism and Communism. Instead of learning from its own violent history, Europe decided to abolish history and reason. The Arab-Israeli conflict was never about particular borders but about Arab rejection of Israel’s right to exist within any boundaries.


Instead of demanding an end to Arab aggression against Israel’s existence, the European Union has embraced PLO propaganda of Arab victimhood and vilification of Israel. As far as Brussels is concerned, widespread Middle Eastern violence and extremism is somehow linked to the presence of Jews living beyond the green line since 1967. The fact that the terrorist organization PLO was established three years before any Jews lived in Judea and Samaria, does not concern Europe.

The European Union does not merely support Arab claims against Israel. Brussels has emerged as the chief bankroller of Arab and Islamist terrorism and propaganda against Israel. The Arab population in Judea, Samaria and Gaza has received more aid per capita than anyone else in the world. While claiming concern about the well-being of Arab civilians, Europe has willfully disregarded the Abbas regime’s despotism and flagrant violation of fundamental human rights. Brussels has also largely ignored Hamas’ cynical abuse of Arab civilians as human shields against Israel. Instead of condemning PLO and Hamas terrorism against Israel, the European Union has systematically criticized the Jewish state for defending itself.

Few parts of the world have more experience with refugees than Europe. After the Second World War, millions of refugees were resettled within Europe and beyond. Instead of seeking a similar solution in the Middle East, the European Union continues to finance UNWRA, which cynically fuels the Arab-Israeli conflict. Unlike any other refugee organization, UNWRA is tasked to perpetuate rather than solving the Arab refugee issue. In an Orwellian fashion, millions of alien Arabs that have never set foot in Israel are counted as “refugees” of the Arab-Israeli conflict. By contrast, Israel has absorbed and successfully integrated millions of Jewish refugees from Europe, the Middle East and beyond.

Disagreements between democracies are common. However, the growing gulf between Brussels and Jerusalem runs much deeper. On most crucial issues pertaining to the Middle East, Europe sides against Israel. The European Union refuses to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. Brussels joined the Muslim world in condemning President Trump for moving the American embassy to Jerusalem.

The European Union opposes sanctions against Iran and largely ignores Tehran’s genocidal threats against Israel. Europe continues to treat the despotic Holocaust denier Abbas as a “moderate” statesman. Instead of demanding that Ramallah and Gaza use European funds for peace and progress, Brussels indirectly finances PLO’s and Hamas’ terrorist war against Israel.

Instead of demanding an end to Middle Eastern antisemitism, Brussels ignores or excuses Muslim and Arab genocidal Jew-hatred. In 2005, Israel left the Gaza Strip and evacuated thousands of Jews living there. According to European logic, this move should have led to peace. However, it led to an unprecedented explosion of aggression against Israel. Instead of demanding an unconditional end to Hamas terrorism against Israel, Brussels fabricates a moral equivalence between the democratic Jewish state and the Islamists.

The same EU that claims to support a two-state solution to the Arab-Jewish conflict, recently criticized Israel for legally declaring itself a Jewish nation-state. Brussels even absurdly claimed that the new Jewish nation-state law could “complicate or prevent” the two-state solution. It appears that Europe retroactively opposes the UN Partition Plan to establish an Arab and a Jewish state in the former British Palestine Mandate. Jewish national homelessness enabled the Holocaust.

Seven decades after the reestablishment of the Jewish nation-state, Europe continues to wage its ideological war against the Jewish people in the name of “human rights”.

          Friday's papers: Chaotic classrooms, limited company leg-up and more thunderstorms      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

School started on Thursday in most areas of Finland and local paper Vantaan Sanomat features an article on a poll carried out last spring that found that teachers and parents in the capital region city of Vantaa agree that teachers and pupils need more support in the classroom.

Some teachers responding to the parent association/teacher union survey said that classrooms these days are very restless, even chaotic. Among primary school teachers, 36 percent said that classroom support was not sufficient, while 60 percent of secondary school teachers said pupils were not being given the support promised them by Finnish law.

Comprehensive education in Finland follows the principle of inclusivity. All children are taught together in the same classroom, with a system of three tiers (general, enhanced support and special needs education) designed for pupils that might need more help.

Teachers' time limited

VS interviewed two teachers who wished to remain anonymous. They say that the idea of a shared classroom meeting all of the kids' needs is a great idea in principle – and an illusion in practice. This is because the teachers are alone with the children for more of the school day. The school's few special teachers and assistants are spread thin; they only have a few hours of time a week to help the teachers in the classroom.

"It works if there are two adults in the classroom. It would be incredible if we teachers could always work with a partner," said the first teacher.

The second teacher says that of the 20 children in her classroom last year, one-quarter needed either enhanced or special needs support. Both agree that the number of children in school that need more support in the classroom is on the rise. In their 30 years on the job, they have seen major changes in the Finnish school dynamic.

"Yelling, getting up and wandering around, breaking pens and pencils, throwing things, swearing… We often have to tell the pupils that they are not allowed to speak to us that way," they say.

The teachers tell VS that penny-pinching in basic education will end up bringing a much higher price tag for society in the future.

"Savings will mean more marginalization. Average and bright pupils will also lose their interest in studies because we don't have the resources to pay attention to their needs and so they are forced to underperform."

Easier to start up a start-up

The publication Yrittäjät from the Finnish Federation of Enterprises, a group of over 100,000 entrepreneurial companies, has a story this Friday on a proposal from the Ministry of Justice to do away with the 2,500-euro share capital requirement that is currently required in order to establish a private limited company (osakeyhtiö or Oy) in Finland. The federation says it supports the idea.

"The Finnish economy is sustained by entrepreneurial endeavours. The proposed change could help micro businesses in particular. It is important that they too can benefit from the advantages a limited company can bring," Minister of Justice Antti Häkkänen is quoted as saying.

Removing the minimum capital requirement would also facilitate digital registration with the Finnish Trade Register and tax authorities and enhanced automation of the process.

The ministry also proposes that the current requirements for accredited auditor or other confirmation of share capital payment would in future only apply to public limited companies and those start-ups with a minimum of 80,000 euros in share capital.

An end to the heat?

And Finland's most widely-circulated newspaper, Helsingin Sanomat, ends the week with a weather report: Friday might be the summer's last hot day, as weekend thunderstorms are moving in.

A storm front is moving in from Sweden and will make some noise up and down the coast of Finland tonight, the paper writes.

"Office workers in the capital city area will make it home before the thunder starts booming," Jari Tuovinen from the Finnish Meteorological Institute tells HS.

He warns that gale-strength winds will accompany the storm near the northwest cities of Tornio, Kemi and Oulu, and in Finland's Ostrobothnia regions.

"It will probably topple some trees," Tuovinen says, noting that winds will pick up in the south, too.

The storm will dissipate and move east overnight, and Saturday is expected to be sunny and warm again in most areas. The low pressure front could still bring some showers and lightning to the west coast.

"The south may get some more rain and thunder late Saturday night, and Sunday will see variable weather in the south," Tuovinen tells HS.

Saturday may still see very warm temperatures in Finland, but by Sunday, temperatures are predicted to fall below 20 degrees – even in the south.

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

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

          Ryanair pilots on strike, thousands affected across Europe      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Berlin, Aug 10 (IANS) Ryanair pilots went on a 24-hour strike on Friday in several European countries in protest against the stagnation of negotiations on wages and working condition, forcing the Irish low-cost airline to cancel 400 flights on Friday affecting thousands of people.

The walk-out involved staff in Germany, Sweden, Ireland, Belgium and the Netherlands. The action was the largest in a series of strikes held earlier, the BBC reported. The cancelled flights were from the 2,400 scheduled flights.

Around 55,000 passengers across Europe were expected to be affected by the strike, almost 42,000 of them in Germany, where 250 flights were reported to be hit.

"Despite the regrettable and unjustified strike action taking place in 5 of our 37 markets on Friday, over 2,000 flights (85 per cent) of the schedule will operate as normal", a Ryanair statement said.

Ryanair, Europe's largest low-cost carrier, averted widespread strikes before Christmas by agreeing to recognize unions for the first time in its 30-year history.

But there have been protests ever since over the negotiation of collective labour agreements. About 300 Ryanair flights were cancelled in July when cabin crews in Belgium, Portugal and Spain went on strike for 48 hours.

Kenny Jacobs, the chief marketing officer at Ryanair, said earlier that the airline was "not prepared to concede to unreasonable demands that will compromise either our low fares or our highly efficient model".

Shares in Ryanair dipped 1 per cent on Friday. The stock was down roughly 30 per cent from a record high set in 2017.

When Edson Arantes do Nascimento was born in the Brazilian town of Tres Coracoes in October 1940, no-one could have predicted the phenomenal impact he would go on to have on the beautiful game. Football would never be quite the same again. Pele - as he became known at school - remains the game's greatest ever player more than 30 years after he finally hung up his famous boots and while rivals to his crown have come and gone, he is and will forever be the king of football. Signed at a young age by Santos, Pele burst onto the international stage as 17-year-old at the 1958 World Cup in Sweden, scoring twice in Brazil's final triumph against the hosts. The first chapter in the Pele legend had already been written but there were many more iconic moments to follow. Injury denied him the chance to play in a second World Cup final in 1962 after scoring in the tournament opener against Mexico but he was back on the biggest stage of them all eight years later to lead Brazil to another famous victory. Many consider the 1970 Brazilian side the greatest team in the history of the game. Pele was the captain and heartbeat of the side and in the final he scored the first goal and set up two more as the South Americans crushed the Azzurri 4-1 in what is widely regarded as the best performance ever in a World Cup final. Brazil's third World Cup triumph ensured they were to keep the famous Jules Rimet trophy indefinitely and Pele's place in football folklore was assured. He finally retired from the game in 1977 after playing for New York Cosmos. He had played 92 times for his country, won three World Cup and scored over a thousand career goals. No-one has ever come close to eclipsing him. Own a piece of sporting history Pele is regarded as the greatest footballer to ever play the game and since his retirement has remained a global ambassador for the beautiful game. This wonderful framed Brazil 1970 shirt is personally signed by Pele and is an outstanding piece of sporting memorabilia. Each shirt also comes with a certificate of authenticity.

If I was her, I would have taken the next plane out regardless of an "exhausted daughter." Again Muslims will not interpret that well. Can you imagine what they thought? A FEMALE arguing with them and she might have been wrong and then saying another FEMALE is too tired. Geesh! It sounds like she was confused about VISAS and didn't know she needed a new VISA for each visit. She couldn't have handled it worse than what she did. Maybe she has the Swedish mentality and doesn't understand reality. Sweden is a mess! "The immigration officer told her the visa was valid for a single visit and said she had to buy a ticket and return to London immediately."

          Link between appendicitis and allergies      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Children with allergies who undergo surgery for appendicitis are less likely to develop complicated appendicitis, a new study has shown.

Researchers from Lund University and Skåne University Hospital in Sweden believe their findings, now published in JAMA Pediatrics, could lead to the development of new diagnostic tools.

The study included all 605 children under the age of 15 who underwent surgery for appendicitis at Skåne University Hospital in Lund between 2007 and 2017.

The researchers compared the outcomes for the 102 children with IgE-mediated allergy with the 503 children without that allergy.

They found that of the children with IgE-mediated allergy, 19.6% contracted more complicated appendicitis. In the group of children with no IgE-mediated allergy, 46.9% were affected.

Martin Salö, researcher at Lund University and physician at Skåne University Hospital, said: “In a study of all the children who underwent surgery for appendicitis in Lund, Sweden, over the span of a decade, we found that the most common form of allergy, such as allergy to pollen and animal fur, was associated with a three times lower risk of developing complicated appendicitis.

“The lower risk remained when we adjusted for other parameters known to increase the risk of serious appendicitis, such as lower age and long-lasting symptoms.”

Although it is not yet clear why some children are affected by this more serious form of appendicitis, one theory is that it depends on the body's immunological response differing to the response in cases of uncomplicated appendicitis.

“The outcome of the study supports the theory that complicated appendicitis has a different immunological development compared to uncomplicated appendicitis. The results also provide clues that we hope can lead to the development of new diagnostic aids such as blood tests,” added Salö.

European stocks tumbled most in a month, following Asian shares lower following contagion fears that Turkey’s economic problems will spill over into the euro zone and beyond. The Euro sank, while the safe haven dollar advanced alongside Treasuries, with the 10Y back under 2.90%. The Turkish Lira initially plunged and fell 45 big figures, with the USDTRY hitting a record high of 6.3005, or up more than 11%, before holding below 6.0 for the bulk of the session.

As described earlier the collapse started around midnight EDT when the FT reported that the ECB Single Supervisory Mechanism warned that BBVA, UniCredit and BNP Paribas are particularly exposed to a TRY selloff, and even though it "does not see situation as critical yet", it warned that the risk is that Turkish borrowers may not be hedged against TRY weakness and begin to default on foreign- currency loans.

There is some hope that Turkish President Erdogan's speech at 12 p.m. London time will calm matters but his earlier ad hoc comments did not give much room for optimism. Speaking outside a mosque earlier today, Erdogan told followers “Don’t forget this: if they have got dollars, we have got our people, our right, our Allah."

Commenting on the statement, Bloomberg macro analyst Stephen Kirkland said that it signals he’s sticking to a nationalist message and is uninclined to deliver the hard measures Turkish assets need, which according to some analysts such as ADM's Marc Ostwald include a 500 bps rate hike and an IMF bailout. As a result, option markets are now pricing in a one-in-five chance of USD/TRY reaching 7 per dollar in a month, from about 1% probability yesterday.

For the Turkey watchers, here is today's key sequence of events, all times London:

  • 12.00BST: President Erdogan to speak
  • 12.30BST: Finance Minister Albayrak announces new economic model
  • 14.30BST: President Erdogan to speak again

And as fears of contagion mounted, the EURUSD tumbled to the lowest level in a year, running stops as it broke below the barrier level of 1.15...

... as the DXY spiked to YTD highs amid a broad flight to safety with the USD bid seen across all pairs. The scramble for safety meant that both USTs and bunds rallied however in a more contained manner and the 10Y bund yields were lower by ~3.5bps.

In equities, Europe's Stoxx Europe 600 Index dropped with European equity markets selling off steadily as banks underperformed with BBVA, UniCredit and BNP Paribas - the three banks named by the ECB - in focus as all three fall 3.5-4.0%. Mining stocks also weaker as Russia considers a new mining tax of $7.5b, which also weighed on metals across the board.

U.S. equity futures declined alongside shares from Asia to Europe. Asian equity markets were also mostly negative with sentiment subdued. The ASX 200 (-0.1%) and Nikkei 225 (-0.7%) were lower with Australia weighed by weakness in energy stocks, while Tokyo trade failed to benefit from stronger than expected GDP amid a firmer currency. Elsewhere, Shanghai Comp. (-0.1%) and Hang Seng (-0.4%) traded choppy amid a lack of fresh drivers and after the PBoC refrained from operations again for a neutral position for the week.

“We’re going to have the uncertainty about Erdogan and him speaking later today that I think is going to keep the market volatile,” said Peter Chatwell, head of European rates strategy at Mizuho International, in a Bloomberg Television interview. “But probably some of the market reaction we had first thing this morning could start to retrace a bit.”

As has been the case for much of 2018, geopolitical tensions between the U.S. and other countries had set the tone for markets this week, with the latest leg of the lira’s downward spiral triggered by a diplomatic row with America. Earlier in the week, China responded to the Trump administration’s latest trade war volley with additional tariffs of its own.

Elsewhere in FX, via BBG:

  • The pound sank to the lowest since June 2017 against the dollar, and held the losses even after data showed the U.K. economy expanded 0.4% between April and June, in line with the median forecast in a Bloomberg survey
  • Norway’s krone enjoyed support from a better-than-forecast inflation report while Sweden’s krona weakened after price data matched estimates
  • China’s yuan extended its drop, heading for the biggest fall in three weeks
  • The ruble hit a two-year low after the U.S. announced new sanctions on Russia over the March 4 nerve-agent attack on a former double agent in the U.K.

Oil is still set for its 6th weekly loss as the crude complex is being hit by a rising USD, and risk aversion with both WTI and Brent down ~0.8% on the day, and Brent set for a near 2% and WTI looking at a near 3% fall for the week. In the metals complex, gold is down and straddling the USD 1210/oz level, as the rising dollar is hitting the gold market, which is looking at its 5th consecutive weekly fall. Copper has given up gains seen in early trade and is currently down 1.1% as an 11.3% fall in copper inventories seen by ShFE over the past week has not counteracted the USD hitting 13 month highs

Asian equity markets were mostly negative with sentiment subdued after a lacklustre lead from Wall St. where weakness in energy and financials dragged the DJIA and S&P 500, while the Nasdaq just about remained afloat to notch its 8th consecutive gain. ASX 200 (-0.3%) and Nikkei 225 (-1.3%) were lower with Australia weighed by weakness in energy stocks, while Tokyo trade failed to benefit from stronger than expected GDP amid a firmer currency. Elsewhere, Shanghai Comp. (flat) and Hang Seng (-0.8%) traded choppy amid a lack of fresh drivers and after the PBoC refrained from operations again for a neutral position for the week. Finally, 10yr JGBs were higher with demand spurred by losses in riskier assets and with the BoJ also present in the market for nearly JPY 800bln in JGBs. PBoC skipped open market operations and were net neutral for the week vs. last week's CNY 210bln net drain.

European equities have started the day negative (Euro Stoxx 50 -1.4%) as amid reports the ECB is expressing concerns of a weak TRY on European banks. This is pressuring European banks as a whole (STOXX® Europe 600 Banks (SX7P) -1.7%) as investors are repositioning into safe-haven assets and away from the financial sector, which is the current sector underperformer. BNP Paribas (-3.7%), BBVA (-3.3%) and UniCredit (-3.1%) are bringing up the rear of the Stoxx 600 on the back of high exposure to Turkish assets.

In FX, the highlight was the TRY with almost relentless selling early Friday, to the point of a full-on capital flight at one stage, saw the Lira collapse to new all time lows vs the Usd with vendors and price feeds quoting levels for the pair anywhere between 6.0000-50 in fast, if not frantic market conditions. However, some respite for the Try ahead of and after Turkish current account data that was slightly better than forecast in the event, but the focus now very much on speeches from President Erdogan (midday and 14.30BST), and more importantly the Finance Minister’s new economic model (12.30BST). Usd/Try back under 6.0000, but only just. DXY - The index is just off best levels, but riding high near fresh 2018 peaks around 96.182 and still over the big figure amidst widespread Dollar gains, bar vs the safest of safe-haven currencies, Jpy as the aforementioned Lira and EM meltdown spills over to majors. Technically, 96.512 is next on the radar, assuming no intervention to stop the rout and/or a major upset for the Greenback independently (weak CPI data?). JPY - As noted, the exception to the rule, as Usd/Jpy trades mostly below 111.00 on risk-off positioning and the Jpy is also boosted by stronger than forecast Japanese GDP data overnight. Chart-wise, 110.53 represents nearest support and bids/stops are likely situated around 110.50.

In commodities, oil is set for its 6th weekly loss as the crude complex is being hit by a rising USD, and risk aversion with both WTI and Brent down ~0.8% on the day, and Brent set for a near 2% and WTI looking at a near 3% fall for the week. In the metals complex, gold is down and straddling the USD 1210/oz level, as the rising dollar is hitting the gold market, which is looking at its 5th consecutive weekly fall. Copper has given up gains seen in early trade and is currently down 1.1% as an 11.3% fall in copper inventories seen by ShFE over the past week has not counteracted the USD hitting 13 month highs. Aluminium is also down 0.5% on the day. IEA raise their 2018 oil demand growth forecast by 110k BPD to 1.49mln BPD, and see risks to 2019 oil demand growth from trade disputes and rising prices if supply is constrained.

Looking at the day ahead, the highlight is likely to be the July CPI report in the US. Prior to that we get the preliminary Q2 GDP reports in the UK. June industrial production data is also due out in France and the UK as well as June trade data in the latter. In the evening we'll also get the July monthly budget statement in the US. Gazprom will report earnings.

DB's Jim Reid concludes the overnight wrap

Markets are undoubtedly quiet at the moment but there are some big moves still in Turkey and Russia that are preventing everyone from enjoying the summer. Firstly the S&P 500 closed -0.14% after a dip in the last 15 minutes before the bell but the index again traded in a fairly narrow 0.37% range for the day - the 8th lowest this year. Meanwhile the Turkish Lira dropped -5.15% to a fresh record low (YTD -46.2%) and the 13th worst day since 2000. Ankara’s jailing of the America pastor and the associated diplomatic row continues to hurt the country’s assets. Not even the Turkish Treasury and Finance Minister Berat Albayrak’s office saying that the government would curb sovereign borrowing by reducing the GDP growth target to under 4% from 5.5% had an impact beyond a brief and small intra-daytick up in the Lira. President Erdogan speaks today at 2pm local time so it’ll be interesting to see if anything important comes from that. Meanwhile the Russian Ruble fell -1.72% (YTD -15.7%) to the lowest since April 2016 as the prior night’s US sanctions continued to dampen sentiment. Countries that are in a diplomatic battle with the US at the moment (e.g. China, Turkey and Russia) seems to be suffering in the markets.

The main highlight today is US CPI. DB expects core inflation (0.23% month-over-month) to rebound in July after a few softer monthly prints. According to our team, over the past three months, core CPI has risen at an annualized rate of only 1.74%, well below the year-over-year and 6-month annualized rates which are both near 2.3%. Their forecast is supported by recent firmer readings for alternative inflation gauges and expectations for a rebound in a few categories that have been unusually soft in recent months. A print in line with DB’s forecast would lift the YoY rate for core CPI inflation to 2.32%, which would support the long-standing house call for two more rate hikes this year.

Ahead of this, this morning in Asia, markets are retreating modestly with China’s CSI 300 broadly flat (+0.02%) while the Hang Seng (-0.45%), Nikkei (-0.72%) and Kospi (-0.66%) are all down as we type. Meanwhile futures on the S&P are pointing to a softer start while the Chinese Yuan is resuming its decline (-0.2%). Datawise, the rebound in Japan’s Q2 GDP was stronger than expected at 0.5% qoq (vs. 0.3% expected), leading to an annualised growth of 1.9%. Back to other markets performance from yesterday. In the US, the Nasdaq edged up for the 8th straight day (+0.04%), closing in on matching its prior winning streak of 9 days in late September 17. Meanwhile Tesla fell for the second day (-4.83%) and was down -9.0% from its intraday high a few days back, in part as investors scrutinised the potential to take the company back to private ownership.

Notably, Tesla rose c2% in after hour trading though after CNBC reported that its Board of Directors plans to meet with financial advisers next week to explore taking the company private, although Reuters cited unnamed sources which noted the board has not yet received a detailed financial plan from CEO Musk. So one to watch.

In Europe, the Stoxx 600 reversed earlier losses to close +0.09% as consumers stocks benefited from better than expected results from Adidas (+8.6%) and Cineworld (+10.7%). Across the region, the DAX (+0.34%) and CAC  (+0.01%) nudged higher while the FTSE (-0.45%) gave back some of its gains from the prior day. Over in government bonds, core 10y yields were around 2bp lower (Bunds -2.3bp; Gilts -1.9bp) while treasuries outperformed (-3.4bp), in part following a weaker than expected PPI print (more below). Turning to currencies, the US dollar index firmed 0.43% to a fresh 13 month high while the Euro and Sterling fell -0.71% and -0.45% respectively. In commodities, WTI oil softened further (-0.19%) while precious metals were little changed (Gold -0.12%; Silver +0.11%).

In other news, Business Insider reported that some member states in the EU are ready to allow UK to remain in the single market for goods while opting out of the free movement of people if UK agrees to replicate all environmental, social, and customs rules in addition to those set out in her so-called Chequers proposals. The potential trade-off will apparently be discussed at a special meeting of all 28 leaders in Salzburg next month. It doesn’t seem likely that the EU would be this generous at this stage and after a brief spike GBP largely ignored the story and closed -0.45% and -0.27% lower against the USD and EUR.

Finally turning to the latest central bankers speak. The Fed’s Evans, one of the more dovish Fed members seems to be shifting his tone as he noted that “it would not surprise me…if we make a judgement to move to a somewhat restrictive setting” on rates, which he believes could be roughly 50bp above his 2.75% estimate of neutral rates. Nearer term, he believes “it could be one or two more” rate hikes for the year. Meanwhile he pointed to the economy’s “extremely  strong” performance and he thinks “inflation expectations are going to catch up”. Back in the UK, the outgoing BoE policy maker McCafferty told the Guardian that wage growth might “creep up towards 4 percent-ish” in 2019, in part driven by a labour shortage and he sees “another couple” of rate hikes in the next 18 months to two years.

Before we take a look at today’s calendar, we wrap up with other data releases from yesterday. In the US, the July core PPI (ex food & energy) was 0.1ppt below expectations, coming in at 0.1% mom and 2.7% yoy. The weakness was in   part due to the decline in wholesale prices for apparel (-4.4% mom) and furnishings (-3.2% mom). Meanwhile, our US economists noted the healthcare component – used as an input in the core PCE deflator, was up just +0.03% in July leaving its annual growth rate steady at 1.7% yoy. Elsewhere the final reading for the June wholesale inventories was revised one-tenth higher to 0.1% mom. The weekly initial jobless (213k vs. 220k expected) and continuing claims (1,755k vs. 1,730k expected) remain near historic low levels and continue to reflect robust labour market conditions. Back in the UK, the June RICS housing survey reported that a net 4% of surveyors had seen house price increases over the past three months – up slightly from the June survey.

Looking at the day ahead, the highlight is likely to be the July CPI report in the US. Prior to that we get the preliminary Q2 GDP reports in the UK. June industrial production data is also due out in France and the UK as well as June trade data in the latter. In the evening we'll also get the July monthly budget statement in the US. Gazprom will report earnings.

          Ranked! Every Premier League club rated by their summer transfer business      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
All fees are reported and approximate, etc. We don’t hate your club – or at least, we hate all equally.20. TottenhamIN: N/AOUT: Keanan Bennetts (£2m), Anton Walkes (£200,000)You know, Daniel, you should really stop doing this.Levy did what Levy does, engaging in brinkmanship to ensure the best deal for his club. That’s the theory, anyway. Last season, Tottenham’s first summer signing arrived only a week before the transfer deadline; this season, he never arrived at all. Rumours of a £150m war chest were rightly greeted with scepticism, but even so… nothing?While the Levy lols flooded Twitter, some focusing on the irony that the Spurs chairman voted for the earlier transfer deadline, the joke is ultimately on the club’s fans. Ticket prices rose for Tottenham’s move to their still-uncompleted new stadium, some by as much as 50%, yet the supposedly ring-fenced budget for transfers hasn’t been ring-fenced at all. The team needed strengthening and new contracts are not new signings, whatever Mauricio Pochettino says.19. Manchester UnitedIN: Fred (£52m), Diogo Dalot (£19.3m), Lee Grant (£1.5m)OUT: Daley Blind (£14.1m), Sam Johnstone (£6.5m), Joel Pereira, Dean Henderson, Timothy Fosu-Mensah, Axel Tuanzebe, Cameron Borthwick-Jackson, Matty Willock (all loan), Joe Riley (released), Michael Carrick (retired)Given their own manager’s feelings on the coverage of his club, we feel it necessary to declare that it was never our intention to put Manchester United this low in our rankings. They were mid-table until recently, the assumption being that, after a solid start, two more defenders would arrive. Or one. But a really good one. Right?Nope. Despite Jose Mourinho saying a fortnight ago: “I would like two more players; I think it’s possible I’m going to have one,” in a not-so-subtle prod to his boss, Ed Woodward didn’t manage even that andreturnedempty-handed.Mourinho’s belittling of his own players, most notably Luke Shaw, affords him limited sympathy, and he shouldn’t be allowed to forget that he has bought two £30m centre-backs already. Nonetheless, it seems extraordinary that United will enter the 2018/19 season with Alex Ferguson’s old wingers as their first-choice full-backs. Oh well. There’s always Lee Grant.18. BurnleyIN: Ben Gibson (£15m), Matej Vydra (£11m), Joe Hart (£3.5m)OUT: Scott Arfield, Dean Marney, Chris Long (released)Burnley were slow to add to their squad, and the upshot of that hesitancy was almost a premature end to their long-awaited European campaign. The Clarets released two useful squad players in Scott Arfield, who started 15 Premier League games last term, and Dean Marney, yet didn’t bring in anyone until the final few days of the window. By that point, a tiny squad had been dragged into extra time by Aberdeen, while their fans feared Burnley’s Europa League adventure might end in A) tears, B) early August, and C) Scotland.Burnley got there in the end, in the match and the market. However, giving yesterday’s man, Joe Hart, a two-year contract is incredibly short-sighted: Tom Heaton returns soon and Nick Pope later in the year, whereupon Hart will be an expensive – and noisy – third-choice goalkeeper.Meanwhile, Matej Vydra’s transfer raises questions, not answers. He can’t replace Chris Wood or Sam Vokes as the lone striker in a direct team, and is Sean Dyche, having shifted with such success from 4-4-2 to 4-4-1-1, prepared to play Vydra as a No.10 in place of the hard-working Jeff Hendrick? It’s not certain where the Czech will fit in. On a happier note, record signing Ben Gibson is a very shrewd addition in defence.17. WatfordIN: Gerard Deulofeu (£11.5m), Adam Masina (£3.5m), Ben Foster (£2.5m), Ken Sema (£2m), Marc Navarro (£1.8m), Ben Wilmot (£1.5m), Domingos Quina (£1m)OUT: Richarlison (£40m), Nordin Amrabat (£7.5m), Mauro Zarate (£2m), Costel Pantilimon (£1.1m), Jerome Sinclair, Tommie Hoban, Dodi Lukebakio, Daniel Bachmann, Alex Jakubiak (all loan), Brandon Mason (released)Hmm. There are positives: Marc Navarro is a bargain at that price, they’ve taken a lot of low-risk punts and it’s hard to argue with a profit of nearly £30m. Perhaps they could’ve used that windfall to acquire some goals, however.Buying 35-year-old Ben Foster to displace 37-year-old Heurelho Gomes in nets also seems insufficient, unless Javi Gracia plans to throw teenage Sweden international Pontus Dahlberg straight in. None of this screams ‘confidence’ from Watford.£40m (rising to £50m) for Richarlison, though…16. EvertonIN: Richarlison (£40m), Yerry Mina (£27.2m), Lucas Digne (£18m), Andre Gomes (loan), Bernard (free)OUT: Davy Klaassen (£12m), Ramiro Funes Mori (£8m), Henry Onyekeru (loan – £700,000 loan fee), Ashley Williams, Shani Tarashaj, Luke Garbutt, Antonee Robinson, Callum Connolly (all loan), Wayne Rooney, Joel Robles, Jose Baxter, David Henen (all released)Everton needed an injection of pace and they’ve got it in Richarlison, Bernard (one of those transfers where life imitates Football Manager) and the earlier acquisition of Theo Walcott.However, they also needed a striker, a midfielder and a pair of centre-backs, and it took a late scramble to find two of those four players. The inconsistent Yerry Mina shot up in value thanks to his set-piece goals at the World Cup, but at 23 he could still be an asset; the question is whether he, Michael Keane, Phil Jagielka and Mason Holgate represent four reliable centre-back options.The striker didn’t materialise, even though Everton disentangled themselves from Wayne Rooney’s wage asphyxiation and found a buyer for Davy Klaassen, clawing back half of the fee they paid for the Dutchman a year ago. Fans should be excited by the new arrivals, if they ignore the nagging sense that Everton think they’re best mates with Barcelona, while Barcelona see them as the geeky new kid with deep pockets.INTERVIEWRicharlison: “On the day that the guy pointed the gun at my head, he thought I was a drug dealer”15. ChelseaIN: Kepa Arrizabalaga (£71.6m), Jorginho (£50m), Mateo Kovacic (loan), Rob Green (free)OUT: Thibaut Courtois (£31.5m), Jeremie Boga (£3.6m), Jonathan Panzo (£2.7m), Kenedy, Baba Rahman, Mario Pasalic, Kasey Palmer, Lewis Baker, Jamal Blackman, Mason Mount, Fikayo Tomori, Trevoh Chalobah, Todd Kane, Matt Miazga, Eduardo, Jake Clarke-Salter (all loan), Wallace, Matej Delac (both released)It’s all a bit unbalanced. Having a large squad is no skin off Chelsea’s nose – they’ve 25 players out on loan already and another half-dozen will surely join them before that window shuts – but over 30 senior players are at the club. While Maurizio Sarri’s 4-3-3 allows for some rotation between central midfielders, he probably doesn’t need Jorginho (part of a £57m deal with Napoli for player and manager), Mateo Kovacic (part of a hostage negotiation with Thibaut Courtois), N’Golo Kante, Cesc Fabregas, Ross Barkley, Danny Drinkwater, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Ruben Loftus-Cheek (not to mention Ethan Ampadu and Marco van Ginkel).Amid a £90m net spend for not a great deal, the headline is, of course, Courtois’ vanishing act. Losing one of the world’s best goalkeepers for less than half what Liverpool paid for Alisson has to hurt, and ending up £40m out of pocket after finding his replacement doesn’t look goodeither, but it’s the best Chelsea could have hoped for once Courtois had refused to extend his contract beyond next year and then stopped turning up for training. We’re sure Rob Green will push Kepa hard for his place.READKepa Arrizabalaga: Chelsea’s world-record goalkeeper with magnificent reflexes – but still a lot to learn14. NewcastleIN: Yoshinori Muto (£9.5m), Federico Fernandez (£6m), Fabian Schar (£3.5m), Martin Dubravka (£3.5m), Salomon Rondon, Kenedy (both loan), Ki Sung-yueng (free)OUT: Aleksandar Mitrovic (£22m), Mikel Merino (£10.7m), Chancel Mbemba (£7m), Matz Sels (£3.5m), Adam Armstrong (£1.7m), Ivan Toney (£800,000), Dwight Gayle, Jack Colback (both loan), Massadio Haidara, Jesus Gamez, Curtis Good (all released)“Rafa, as always, has my full support, and contrary to some media reports that portray me as a pantomime villain, I will continue to ensure that every penny generated by the club is available to him.” So said Mike Ashley in May.Three months on, Newcastle have predictably ended the summer with a £23m surplus. Shifting Aleksandar Mitrovic to Fulham covered their four cash buys; it’s just that Newcastle sold five other players as well. It’s not hard to see why the fans aren’t happy.And yet, from the business perspective which these rankings have to consider, the situation is this: Newcastle are £20m-plus to the good and don’t look any weaker. The problem is that they weren’t exactly strong to begin with.READWhere does the money go at Newcastle United?13. SouthamptonIN: Jannik Vestergaard (£22.1m), Mohamed Elyounoussi (£16m), Angus Gunn (£10m), Stuart Armstrong (£7m), Danny Ings (loan)OUT: Dusan Tadic (£10.1m), Guido Carillo, Sofiane Boufal, Jordy Clasie (all loan), Stuart Taylor, Florin Gardos, Jeremy Pied (all released)Is there value in Southampton’s under-the-radar summer business? The cop-out answer is ‘only time will tell’, but an early guess might be that it’s questionable. Although Stuart Armstrong is an athletic, attacking and intelligent midfielder, he isn’t at the level of Virgil van Dijk or Victor Wanyama, who trod the same Celtic-to-Southampton path at a younger age.Goalkeeper Angus Gunn still has a lot to learn. Mohamed Elyounoussi and Jannik Vestergaard feel overpriced. Finally, Danny Ings was a last-minute grab that, with Manolo Gabbiadini, Shane Long and Charlie Austin, leaves Saints with four quarters of one fully-functioning Premier League striker (Guido Carrillo, a club record signing seven months ago, has been shipped out on loan).More positively, all five arrivals are of the right age, 22-26, and persuading an Eredivisie club to part with £10m for one player deserves some sort of medal.12. Crystal PalaceIN: Cheikhou Kouyaté (£9.5m), Jordan Ayew (loan), Max Meyer, Vicente Guaita (both free)OUT: Jaroslaw Jach (loan), Yohan Cabaye, Damien Delaney, Bakary Sako, Lee Chung-yong, Diego Cavalieri (all released)Although very little money was spent (and received), Roy Hodgson identified a competent goalkeeper in Vicente Guaita and bolstered his midfield options two-fold, theorising that his team didn’t need much in order to improve on their impressive results under him in 2017/18.Some might argue, though, that Palace needed full spinal surgery and that Vicente Guaita, Cheikhou Kouyaté and Max Meyer are just a few vertebrae. Scott Dann and Mamadou Sakho are injury concerns, yet they and James Tomkins are Palace’s only natural centre-backs, while at the top end, a move back to the wing for Wilfried Zaha would make their striking options Alexander Sorloth, Christian Benteke and Connor Wickham – the mysterious, the misfiring and the missing. A last-minute loan deal for Jordan Ayew doesn’t inspire confidence.Between the two problem positions, Meyer is an eye-catching signing. His star may have fallen at Schalke since he was hailed as Germany’s next wunderkind and made their provisional World Cup squad in 2014, but his ability isn’t in question and he is still only 22.11. Cardiff CityIN: Josh Murphy (£11m), Bobby Reid (£10m), Greg Cunningham (£4m), Alex Smithies (£3.5m), Harry Arter, Victor Camarasa (both loan)OUT: Omar Bogle (loan), Lee Camp, Greg Halford, Matty Kennedy, Frederic Gounongbe, Ben Wilson (all released)It started well: Neil Warnock identified his targets and bought them, all four purchases being made in June. Then six weeks passed with no more arrivals, despite Warnock searching with increasing desperation for a holding midfielder to ensure that Sol Bamba wouldn’t be deputising there on the opening weekend. Whether deadline-day loanees Harry Arter and Victor Camarasa really embody that role is up for debate, but Arter’s energetic all-round game could make him a canny signing.Criticising signings is trickier when they’re the players expressly wanted by the manager – unlike with other clubs here, none of Warnock’s four Championship purchases were fall-back options. Alex Smithies looks the pick of the bunch, provided he can wrestle the underrated Neil Etheridge out of goal, and Greg Cunningham is a good bargain buy.Josh Murphy still has much to prove, however, and while Bobby Reid looks an excellent signing on paper after his 21-goal season for Bristol City, 2017/18 was his first season as a striker (hence it accounting for two-thirds of the goals across the 25-year-old’s career). There are doubts over his natural position, if any, in Warnock’s preferred 4-3-3 system.10. Manchester CityIN: Riyad Mahrez (£60m), Philippe Sandler (£2.2m), Daniel Arzani (£1.3m)OUT: Angus Gunn (£10m), Pablo Maffeo (£8m), Angelino (£5m), Joe Hart (£3.5m), Olarenwaju Kayode (£2.7m), Rodney Kongolo (£800,000), Jack Harrison, Aleix Garcia, Manu Garcia, Mix Diskerud, Luke Brattan, Tosin Adarabioyo, Marlos Moreno, Lukas Nmecha, Brandon Barker, Matt Smith (all loan), Yaya Toure (released)They got Riyad Mahrez. They cast off Yaya Toure and his moods. They raised £30m by selling players they won’t miss. And, of course, Manchester City didn’t need to change much.But why didn’t they buy a midfielder? After all, Pep Guardiola identified Jorginho as a necessary purchase, only to make no alternative arrangements once he chose Chelsea. David Silva and Kevin De Bruyne playing in central midfield means that Fernandinho’s role is arguably the most important in Manchester City’s XI. He absolutely stepped up to the plate, curbing his box-to-box instincts, but for how much longer can a 33-year-old carry the defensive duties of three players?Neither Ilkay Gundogan nor Fabian Delph have convinced in that vital role, and Phil Foden doesn’t suit it, which leaves City with a potential problem that was easily identified and should have been easily avoided. Baffling.9. BournemouthIN: Jefferson Lerma (£25m), David Brooks (£11.5m), Diego Rico (£10.7m)OUT: Benik Afobe (£10m), Lewis Grabban (£6m), Max Gradel (£1.8m), Harry Arter, Brad Smith, Emerson Hyndman, Connor Mahoney(all loan), Adam Federici, Ryan Allsop (both released), Rhoys Wiggins (retired)Somehow, Bournemouth will go into their fourth Premier League season with half of the same starting XI that took them up in 2014/15. That in itself is a worry, although Diego Rico may well replace Charlie Daniels at left-back once his opening three-match suspension is served. Moves have been made to regenerate the midfield, with Lewis Cook playing more of a starring role alongside Bournemouth’s new record signing: the, uh, combative Jefferson Lerma, with his 16 bookings in 26 La Liga appearances last season.David Brooks, 21, is the most exciting new face and Bournemouth need him in an attack that borders on uninspiring. With that in mind, as well as the Cherries having only four options for their occasional back three, is this trio of additions enough?8. HuddersfieldIN: Terence Kongolo (£17.5m), Adama Diakhaby (£9m), Ramadan Sobhi (£5.7m), Florent Hadergjonaj (£5m), Jonas Lossl (£2.5m), Juninho Bacuna (£2.5m), Isaac Mbenza (loan), Erik Durm, Ben Hamer (both free)OUT: Tom Ince (£10m), Scott Malone (£3m), Michael Hefele (£300,000), Sean Scannell (£250,000), Jordy Hiwula (£150,000), Tariq Holmes-Dennis (appearances-based fee), Joel Coleman, Jack Payne (both loan), Rob Green (released), Dean Whitehead (retired)The Terriers made a decent return on their £30m net spend, the coffers boosted by the sale of Tom Ince back to his natural home in the second tier. Turning loans permanent is an excellent strategy – ‘try before you buy’ and all that – and they’ve made very good acquisitions in defender Terence Kongolo, the bargainous goalkeeper Jonas Lossl and, to a lesser extent, the nonetheless useful right-back Florent Hadergjonaj.Potential seems to be the watchword. Six of Huddersfield’s seven outfield signings are 24 or under. The exception is an intriguing one: 26-year-old Erik Durm, World Cup winner, who has joined on a one-year contract in order to prove his fitness.7. ArsenalIN: Lucas Torreira (£26.4m), Bernd Leno (£19.3m), Sokratis Papastathopoulos (£17.7m), Matteo Guendouzi (£7m), Stephan Lichtsteiner (free)OUT: Chuba Akpom (£2m), Jeff Reine-Adelaide (£1.5m), Calum Chambers, Matt Macey, Takuma Asano (all loan), Santi Cazorla, Jack Wilshere (both released), Per Mertesacker (retired)It seems a very long time ago that Arsenal brought in this famous five (if that’s not too generous to 19-year-old Matteo Guendouzi). Extra settling time is no bad thing, however, especially following the wide range of departures from Arsenal’s squad over the past 12 months, not to mention a new manager.Lucas Torreira promises big things in midfield, while defensive thirtysomethings Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Stephan Lichtsteiner offer leadership if not longevity. Bernd Leno could be a real coup: he is 26, racked up 300 appearances in seven years for Bayer Leverkusen and, in stark contrast to headline-makers Alisson and Kepa, cost under £20m to buy.READWhy Lucas Torreira will give Arsenal something they have lacked since Patrick Vieira6. BrightonIN: Alireza Jahanbakhsh (£17m), Yves Bissouma (£15m), Bernardo (£9m), Martin Montoya (£6.3m), Florin Andone (£5.3m), David Button (£4m), Dan Burn (£3m), Percy Tau (£2.9m), Anders Dreyer (£500,000), Leon Balogun, Jason Steele (both free)OUT: Sam Baldock (£5m), Connor Goldson (£3m), Jamie Murphy (£1m), Jiri Skalak (£700,000), Dan Burn, Christian Walton (both loan), Steve Sidwell, Tim Krul, Niki Maenpaa, Rohan Ince, Uwe Hünemeier (all released), Liam Rosenior (retired)It’s initially surprising to see Brighton spend over £60m and yet it’s roughly equivalent with last year’s outlay, with the added bonus of recouping £10m in sales this time. The results are intriguing – a mixture of low-cost experience (Martin Montoya, Leon Balogun), genuinely exciting record signings (21-year-old Yves Bissouma, promptly usurped by Alireza Jahanbakhsh) and lower-league back-ups (Dan Burn, who has gone back to Wigan on loan until January, and David Button).That Button cost £4m and will only compete with Sunderland outcast Jason Steele to be first reserve in goal, rather than third choice, says a lot about today’s market. There’s a potential problem here, too: Mat Ryan will be at the Asian Cup for maybe as long as a whole month later in the season, and there are big questions over the quality of his replacements in Button and Steele, although they’d make for a superb detective duo.Beating competitors to Jahanbakhsh is a real coup, mind, in an otherwise positive window.5. West HamIN: Felipe Anderson (£35m), Issa Diop (£22m), Andriy Yarmolenko (£17.5m), Lukasz Fabianski (£7m), Carlos Sanchez (£4m), Lucas Perez (£4m), Fabian Balbuena (£3.5m), Xande Silva (£1.3m), Jack Wilshere, Ryan Fredericks (both free)OUT: Cheikhou Kouyaté (£9.5m), Reece Burke (£1.5m), Domingos Quina (£1m), Jordan Hugill, Martin Samuelsen, Marcus Browne (all loan), James Collins, Patrice Evra (both released)Recent high-risk, low-reward transactions mean West Ham are rarely high in our rankings, but this season they seemed to have learned their lesson. Instead of signing a 29-year-old flavour of the month for an eight-figure fee, they’ve identified and acquired a range of talented freebies, a reliable goalkeeper in Lukasz Fabianski and, in Felipe Anderson, their second record signing of the summer. It’s a statement that West Ham now look to buy the best – and don’t mind paying for it.Admittedly, West Ham’s owners did slip into old habits at the last. Spending a significant sum on the past-his-best Andriy Yarmolenko was already questionable, but mitigated as a one-off. That was seemingly debunked, however, when the club brought in Carlos Sanchez (32) and Lucas Perez (29) on the final day. Still, with Cheikhou Kouyaté moving across London to Crystal Palace, the experienced Sanchez will cover them for a year should Pedro Obiang leave, as expected, and Perez has plenty to offer on the back of a reasonably low fee.4. LiverpoolIN: Alisson (£67m), Naby Keita (£52.8m), Fabinho (£39m), Xherdan Shaqiri (£13m)OUT: Danny Ward (£12.5m), Danny Ings, Harry Wilson, Ben Woodburn, Adam Bogdan, Ryan Kent, Ovie Ejaria, Allan (all loan), Emre Can, Jon Flanagan, Jordan Williams (all released)Jose Mourinho would have you believe that Liverpool’s transfer business has been so outlandish, they must win the title. We can’t imagine why he’d have an agenda to say such a thing, so he must be right.It has been a good summer for Liverpool, mind. Spending north of £170m naturally brings both expectation and an element of risk, but it was imperative that Jurgen Klopp addressed a goalkeeping problem of five years’ standing and revamped the Reds’ midfield.In 23-year-old Naby Keita and 24-year-old Fabinho, Liverpool should be set for a few years. (Fabinho also offers a fourth option at right-back, and you can never be too careful.) Buying Xherdan Shaqiri with the money raised from selling a reserve goalkeeper isn’t bad business, either.The drawbacks? Allowing Emre Can to wind down his contract and leave for nothing is a blow, when he could have brought in a handy £30m, and the centre of defence still looks vulnerable. On the whole, though, Liverpool have done well.READAlisson Becker: Liverpool's world-record new goalkeeper "who can define an era"3. LeicesterIN: James Maddison (£22m), Caglar Soyuncu (£19m), Ricardo Pereira (£17.5m), Filip Benkovic (£13m), Rachid Ghezzal (£12.6m), Danny Ward (£12.5m), Jonny Evans (£3.5m)OUT: Riyad Mahrez (£60m), Ahmed Musa (£14.8m), Harvey Barnes, George Thomas (both loan), Robert Huth, Ben Hamer (both released)It’s not often that a club’s best signing is also the cheapest, but a cut-price Jonny Evans, in or not long past his prime at the age of 30, might be the pick of a good crop. Two young centre-backs have arrived alongside him, too, meaning Leicester are ready for Harry Maguire’s big-money departure in January (look, it’s going to happen).The good news doesn’t stop there. Ricardo Pereira is one hell of an upgrade on Danny Simpson, while Rachid Ghezzal can help to fill the void left by Riyad Mahrez, a hitherto underused Danny Ward can challenge the waning Kasper Schmeichel for his place, and 21-year-old James Maddison can show why he was so in-demand.On top of all that, the Mahrez windfall and a surprisingly good fee for Saudi Arabia-bound Ahmed Musa means that Leicester’s overall expenditure was only £25m or so; indeed, they were in profit before deadline day. It has been a very good window indeed.READCaglar Soyuncu: Turkey's great defensive hope2. FulhamIN: Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa (£30m), Jean Michael Seri (£25m), Aleksandar Mitrovic (£22m), Alfie Mawson (£15m), Joe Bryan (£6m), Fabri (£5.4m), Maxime Le Marchand (£5m), Andre Schurrle, Sergio Rico, Luciano Vietto, Calum Chambers, Timothy Fosu-Mensah (all loan)OUT: David Button (£4m), Tayo Edun, Stephen Humphrys (both loan), Ryan Fredericks, George Williams (both released)So, the tweet from a certain betting company that applauded Fulham for being the first promoted club to spend £100m completely missed the point. That in itself should not be celebrated. It’s not the amount spent that matters; the important thing is always to recruit well.But bloody hell, have Fulham recruited well. They started with 14 senior players, such was their reliance on loans last season, and ended with a tightly-packed squad of 25 that has no discernible drop-off in quality. Jean Michael Seri is easily Fulham’s jewel in the crown, the Ivorian midfielder having been only a last-minute administrative U-turn away from joining Barcelona last year.If anything, things got a bit silly on the window’s final day. The Cottagers had already made excellent inroads, buying a whole new spine in Fabri, Alfie Mawson, Seri and Aleksandar Mitrovic.Maxime Le Marchand providesdefensive support, and Calum Chambers and Andre Schurrle have arrived on loan, the latter’s lasting two years.Then came the afternoon of August 9. Sergio Rico on loan? Well, there’s already Fabri and Marcus Bettinelli in goal, but OK. Luciano Vietto as well? Go on then. And still they spent, splashing a club-record £30m fee on a Marseille midfielder, acquiring a new left-back to take their total expenditure past £100m, and finally arranging a fifth loan deal, leaving Fulham with a full XI of signings, plus a substitute goalkeeper. Smiles turned to nervous laughter. Was this overkill?Optimism reigns supreme nonetheless. The question does remain: will these players fight for a place, or just fight? But, with more options added to an already talented squad, Fulham are prepared for battle.1. WolvesIN: Adama Traore (£18m), Diogo Jota (£12.3m), Willy Boly (£10m), Benik Afobe (£10m), Joao Moutinho (£5m), Leo Bonatini (£3.6m), Ruben Vinagre (£300,000), Leander Dendoncker (loan + £13.5m purchase in 2019), Raul Jimenez, Jonny (both loan), Rui Patricio (free)OUT: Benik Afobe (£1m loan fee + £12m purchase in January), Barry Douglas (£3m), Ben Marshall (£1.5m), Priance Oniangue (£500,000), Duckens Nazon (£200,000), Roderick Miranda, Rafa Mir, Harry Burgoyne (all loan), Carl Ikeme (retired)Negatives out of the way first. One: there are question marks over a couple of Wolves’s defenders, although they do have options: Romain Saiss is being retrained to play there, as Conor Coady was before him, and new midfielder Leander Dendoncker can play at centre-back if necessary. Secondly, selling Barry Douglas felt a little needless, unless Nuno is confident that Jonny or Ruben Vinagre can replace the Scot’s attacking threat on the left, not to mention his set-pieces – in all, Douglas contributed 19 goals and assists in 38 appearances at wing-back last season.But it’s very revealing that the biggest doubt at Wolves is how they’ll manage to pack so much talent into their midfield and attack, following one of the most aggressive recruitment drives of any promoted team in recent history. They’ve bought virtually a full XI and added depth across the park, not to mention natural talents in Portugal No.1 Rui Patricio, experienced Champions League campaigner Joao Moutinho and record signing Adama Traore.It’s also hard to ignore the suggestion that Benik Afobe could be the single best bit of business by any club. Wolves bought him for £10m, paid a week of his wages, then loaned him to Stoke for £1m with an obligation to buy for £12m in January. That’s a nice little £3m profit for doing bugger all.New features you'd love on FourFourTwo.com

          Europe forecast: Gales northern Europe - Thunderstorms east, Aug 10 - 05:43      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

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

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

          Gay Symbolism in Chicago      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
I went to high school in the midst of the disco era, when everyone was carrying around boom boxes, practicing complicated dance moves, and listening to songs about the night life:
I love the night life, I want to boogie on the disco floor.
Whether you're a brother or whether you're a mother, you're staying alive
I should be dancing











And the groups we listened to were all flash and glitter, with bare chests and bulges, promising crazy nights of sexual excess, flirting with androgyny, asking us to wonder "Could he be gay?"













Except for Chicago, some guys with guitars and drums, wearing regular  shirts and jeans -- no bare chests, no bulges.













No androgyny, all married to women and following sports.

 Their no-nonsense, hetero manly albums (mostly entitled Chicago) had a subdued beat impossible to dance to and lyrics that you actually had to listen to in order to understand, mostly stories about pain and loss.

And, paradoxically, obviously without their intention, full of gay subtexts.  Girls rarely mentioned.  The lost love could be male or female.

And another interesting piece from Sweden: "The study forecasts the long-term consequences of immigration on Sweden’s public finances. Both in the short and long term, migrants will cost Sweden billions of euros, the study shows. Although the average immigrant contributes to society, this does not weigh up to the initial costs and costs of the pension. The net cost of the average “refugee” will therefore be a total of 74,000 Swedish crowns (7,184 euros) per year." https://www.svt.se/nyheter/inrikes/ny-eso-rapport-flyktinginvandring-en-kostnad-for-sverige

Sweden-based network infrastructure company Telefon AB L.M. Ericsson is ramping up its investment in the U.S. to support the buildout of 5G and artificial intelligence initiatives. The company expects 5G subscriptions will reach 150 million in North America by the end of 2023, accounting for 48% of all mobile subscriptions. Ericsson opened a design center in Austin, Tex. in late 2017, which will have 80 employees when fully staffed, and plans to open a new software development center employing more than 200 engineers this year. And Ericsson said it will employ around 100 specialists in North America by the end of the year in AI to accelerate automation and explore new business opportunities. The company plans to begin manufacturing in the U.S. in the fourth quarter of 2018, to make 5G products available as soon as possible. The U.S.-listed shares were indicated down less than 1% in premarket trade. They have run up 18% year to date, while the S&P 500 has gained 6.7%.

          Travel misery for 50,000 as Ryanair cancels hundreds of flights      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Up to 50,000 passengers faced travel misery on Friday after Ryanair announced it would have to cancel around 400 flights as a result of industrial action. Pilots in five countries are staging a 24-hour walk-outs over pay and conditions They include Germany, Sweden, Ireland, Belgium and the Netherlands. The joint action is the largest so far in an ongoing dispute. "What it is about is to signal to management that there needs to be an end to them trying to beat their own staff! And that is what we want to achieve today, explained Ingolf Schumacher, the Chairman of the Vereinigung Cockpit Union in Germany. "Today we want to send a clear message to Dublin: Ryanair must change!" Of course it's passengers that are at the sharp end of the dispute, even if there is a certain amount of understanding about the pilots' actions. "It is somehow a bit unfair that the pilots have to draw the short straw just because passengers want to fly for cheap. So, yes I sympathise. It is annoying that it's happening in the holidays but that is the only means they have," said one man at an airport in Berlin. Irish-based Ryanair is Europe's largest low-cost airline. Last year it agreed to recognise unions for the first time but it is in a dispute over collective labour agreements. The company says it has made every effort to solve the dispute.
          Should the U.S. Air Force Bomb Forest Fires?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Earlier this summer, the Swedish Air Force dropped a laser-guided bomb on a forest fire to help suppress the flames. Now there’s a proposal for the United States to do the same, using the might of the U.S. Air Force to fight America’s raging forest fires via bombs and sonic booms. Bombers that have attacked targets in Syria, Afghanistan, and Iraq could instead strike targets in the continental United States—this time saving lives and property. As the Earth's climate changes, wildfire season in the western United States has grown from a summertime concern into a year-round struggle. Higher temperatures have meant, according to one government scientist, “severe droughts, meaning more dry fuel, as well as more intense heat waves”. The conditions set the stage for more, larger fires throughout the year. The trend will threaten people, property, and natural spaces, not to mention push the need for government firefighting services to unprecedented levels. Clearly it's time for new and crazy-sounding ideas. Last month, the Swedish government, battling wildfires of its own, dropped a GBU-49 laser guided bomb on a remote forest fire. F-15 Strike Eagle Weapon System Officer Mike Benitez, writing in War on the Rocks, proposes using B-1 bombers stuffed to the gills with bombs to battle wildfires on the American homefront. The idea here is to snuff out fires the way you'd blow out birthday candles at the base. In Sweden, the shockwave from a single bomb snuffed out flames within a 100-yard radius of the impact point. So, Benitez reasons, why not load up a heavy strategic bomber with up to 84 bombs and do some serious firefighting? Benitez chose the B-1 for his hypothetical scenario not only because of its bomb-carrying capability, but for the same reason the heavy bomber became a close air support platform of choice in Afghanistan: its long range translated into persistence over the battlefield, enabling the big bomber to hang around above friendly forces and bomb the Taliban for hours. The B-1 could do donuts in the skies over a wildfire as firefighters on the ground work out the best way to tackle it. The B-1 wouldn’t carry just any bomb, either, but ordinance that was designed for firefighting. Most bombs use a steel casing that fragments into deadly shrapnel, but this would be unnecessary (and dangerous) when fighting fires. A firefighting bomb would use a combustible casing that would disintegrate on impact. Ideally the bomb would use a thermobaric warhead, one that kills via overpressure, as it generates even more powerful blast waves than traditional high-explosive bombs. The B-1 method is theoretically doable but could be too expensive and dangerous. If that’s the case, then perhaps a big bomber like the B-1, or many smaller jets, could instead fly low and fast over wildfires, using the pressure waves from sonic booms to snuff out fires. As Benitez points out, an aircraft will generate a sonic boom along the length of its flight path at a rate of one mile per thousand feet. This could beat out wildfires over a wide area, and could be repeated as many times as necessary. Benitez’s firefighting bomb proposal is a bold one and bound to take some flak. The idea of using bombers to do anything but fight a war, especially on American soil, takes some getting used to. Although expensive, the increasing scale and frequency of wildfires in the United States could make them more attractive—especially when firefighting bombers have the potential to reverse a deadly and destructive fire within mere minutes.

          Sweden’s Government Funds Anti-Semitism by Nima Gholam Ali Pour      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/12814/sweden-antisemitism The municipality of Malmö uses taxpayers' money to support "Group 194," an organization that posts anti-Semitic images on its Facebook page -- such as a defamatory cartoon portraying a Jew drinking blood and eating a child. In Sweden, imported Middle Eastern anti-Semitism is funded by taxpayer money, so when scandals occur, they are often addressed by the same people who have participated in spreading its message. No effective actions are currently being taken against the spread of anti-Semitism in Sweden. Just as European anti-Semitism was defeated by rejecting and condemning the ideology after World War II and isolating its proponents, so must Sweden's "new" anti-Semitism be defeated by isolating its advocates and marginalizing all organizations spreading its ideas. This means that all direct and indirect government funding of these organizations has to end. As long as this does not happen, Jews in Sweden will continue living in fear and insecurity. As major Swedish cities such as Malmö have become known as places where Jews are threatened, anti-Semitism in Sweden has attracted international attention. Does Sweden, however, really deserve this bad reputation or is there some misunderstanding? In December 2017, when US President Donald J. Trump recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, demonstrations broke out in Malmö. Protesters, often people with an Arab background, shouted, "We want our freedom back and we're going to shoot the Jews", and a chapel at the Jewish cemetery was attacked with firebombs. In Gothenburg, the city's synagogue was also attacked with firebombs.

          How Ikea quietly tweaks its design around the world      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

This week, Ikea opened its first store in India–a feat the company has been planning for many years. But while the big, blue exterior of the store looks the same, the interiors, from the displays to the products themselves, have been subtlety tailored to accommodate cultural differences.

It’s a strategy Ikea has used to expand from its origins in Sweden, now reaching 30 markets in Europe, the Americas, Africa, and Asia: keep the general idea and most of the products the same, with small tweaks to help ease people into the Ikea view of the world (and convince them to shop there). After all, what an American shopper is looking for is different from what an Indian consumer wants. To discern the differences, the company sends its representatives into homes all over the world to talk to people, asking what their needs are, what they can afford, and how they like to shop.

As Ikea has expanded into Asia over the last five years, this has been a crucial part of its strategy–along with preserving the company’s instantly recognizable brand and its famed shopping experience. But even crucial elements of Ikea’s business, like flatpacking most furniture, have to be rethought in some Asian countries, where consumers expect that furniture is assembled for them.

Here’s how Ikea tweaked its design in its new Indian store–and around the world.

Indian furniture can beat the heat and humidity

In the hot, humid climate of southern India, untreated pine furniture–which might work in cooler climates–is a no-go. As the New York Times reports, that meant the company had to adjust some of its furniture designs to use different materials. And because people tend to clean their floors using water, the designers added risers to keep furniture from getting wet.

The way Indian families use their space also impacted the number of product options: Because impromptu family gatherings are common, Ikea offers a greater number of stools and folding chairs in the India store.

Chinese Ikea showrooms get their very own balconies

The displays in the showroom are culturally relevant as well: In China, the showroom includes an entire section on balconies, which are common in Chinese homes. But in southern China, these balcony displays show them being used to dry clothes, while in northern Chinese Ikea stores, the displays show the balcony as another place for food storage–both according to the custom in the area.

Korean Ikea beds are built for tiny spaces

Just as people use their living spaces differently, cultural expectations around bedrooms–and beds–are also wildly different. Americans, for instance, have a particular set of standard sizes for bed frames and mattresses. When the company was expanding into the United States, it made the mistake of putting the dimensions in centimeters rather than in terms of “queen” and “king” sizes, though it quickly fixed the error. When the company first opened stores in China, it had a similar problem: It used the standard sizes for Hong Kong, which are shorter than those on the mainland, before implementing the local sizes.

Ikea’s displays in the new Indian store are more culturally aware: Because Indian children tend to sleep in their parents’ bedrooms for longer periods of time, the sample bedroom included a small bed for a family’s youngster.

Sleeping habits have even led to entirely new products. Before opening its store in South Korea in 2014, Ikea conducted 900 interviews and visits–and ended up designing a “super single” sized bed specifically for Koreans that is optimized for small bedrooms but offers a little more space than your average single.

Swedish meatballs get local flavors

In the company’s new store in Hyderabad, India, there are Swedish meatballs still on the menu at the cafeteria–but they’re vegetarian ones. According to the Times, the cafeteria also serves Indian staples like samosas, biryani, and gulab jamun, a popular dessert. In South Korea, Ikea serves kimchi bibimbap and Korean barbecue.

The Indian cafeteria is also far bigger than Ikea’s other restaurants, which are a staple of the store experience–it can seat 1,000 people. The Times writes that this is “to accommodate the more leisurely dining style of Indian families,” though that might mean that Ikea is aware that trekking out to the store might be an activity for the entire extended family–and all of the cousins will be invited.

American drinking glasses are as big as vases

Regardless of culture, the kitchen is often a centerpiece of the home–but that doesn’t mean it’s used in the same way or shouldn’t adjust to each culture’s needs.

The Times reports that Ikea adjusted the heights of countertops in its Indian showroom because Indian women tend to be shorter. Even the cutlery they’re selling is slightly different: Because many Indian people prefer to use spoons over knives, Ikea decided not to sell the packets of children’s cutlery it sells in other countries that include knives. Instead, it sells sets of four spoons for the equivalent of 22¢. In the company’s Chinese stores, Ikea stocks far more rice cookers and chopsticks than it would in other countries. The catalog for the Chinese market is different as well: The 2017 version shows a much more confined kitchen space when compared side by side with the American one, because Chinese homes tend to have smaller kitchens.

Ikea also had to change its designs for American audiences. When the company started to expand its presence in the United States in the 1990s, it found that it was selling an uncommonly large number of vases. Eventually, executives realized that Americans were buying the vases to drink out of, as the Swedish company’s glasses were too small for local tastes. Even Swedish design-loving Americans needed their own cultural accommodation.

Gillhög is a passage grave dating back to the Neolithic just north of Malmö, Sweden and directly west of the small Swedish town of Barsebäck. The tomb is located beside a small house and is open to the public. The mound surrounding the tomb is visible from a distance as one approaches the site. The passage is about 6 metres in length and leads into a single burial chamber made from megalithic stones. The tomb is enterable and information signs are at the site. Two stone cists (stone coffins) were also found at the site and were placed near the edge of the mound.

Klinkehög is a burial mound located in Båstad, Sweden and dates back to the Bronze Age. The mound has never been excavated and the bodies buried within the mound are highly likely still within the mound. The mound was also used as a burial ground during the Iron Age.

The mound is located on a small piece of land between the main road though Båstad and next to shops and apartments. The mound looks like a small hill in the middle of a small town. The site has an information sign at the bottom of the mound.

Backstage and behind-the-scenes footage from SEPULTURA's ongoing summer 2018 European tour can be seen below. SEPULTURA guitarist Andreas Kisser confirmed to TotalRock Radio that the band has commenced the songwriting process for the follow-up to 2017's "Machine Messiah" album. "Already, me, Eloy [Casagrande, drums], Derrick [Green, vocals] and Paulo [Xisto Pinto Jr., bass], we have a few ideas, so we have where to start from — a few songs in demo version," he said at the Wacken Open Air festival in Wacken, Germany. "And we still have to develop [them] and stuff. We don't still have a kind of a direction or a theme or something, but it's getting there. We still like to enjoy a lot the road, and we don't write that much on the road as a band. Yeah, it's going, but it's still early." Kisser also talked about SEPULTURA's relationship with Nuclear Blast Records, with whom the band has been for nearly a decade. "It's amazing, man," he said. "They are a metal label, and there are people that are on the scene since the beginning, the early days. It's a label that never sold out. Many other labels sold out to bigger companies and bigger labels, you change personnel, you think more on the business side. I think Nuclear Blast has a perfect balance between believing in music — in metal and hardcore and punk — and having the business able to sustain everything… And you see how many artists now are with the label, which is great. It's a great place to be. We have total freedom and support to do our stuff and to work with the producers we want and the artists for the cover — everything. They're very supportive, and they believe in the band, which is everything we need. It's great." "Machine Messiah" was released in January 2017. The disc was recorded at Fascination Street Studios in Örebro, Sweden with Swedish producer Jens Bogren. The CD's cover artwork was created by Filipino artist Camille Della Rosa. SEPULTURA's official documentary, "Sepultura Endurance", will tentatively be released on DVD and Blu-ray this fall.

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

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

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

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

Ryanair has cancelled nearly 400 flights as it battles unions in Germany, Sweden, Ireland, Belgium and the Netherlands. About 50,000 passengers have been directly affected, with others likely to be hit by delays. Ryanair says 85% of scheduled flights will operate as normal on Saturday, and that affected customers have mostly accepted places on alternative flights. But what if you are among those hit?

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


None


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

None


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

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

None


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

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

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

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

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

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

None


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

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

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

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

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

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

None


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

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

None


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

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

None


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

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

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

"We are now moving away from what might be described as a moralistic approach in the previous thinking," he told the Verdens Gang newspaper at the time. "We fully recognize that some are not motivated to become drug-free. This group will now get a much better offer than before."

          In Defense of Brooding      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Last month marked the hundredth birthday of the renowned Swedish filmmaker and theater director Ingmar Bergman (1918–2007). The precocious son of the Lutheran chaplain to the king of Sweden, Bergman is remembered mostly for the theater-influenced, black-and-white movies he made in the 1950s and ’60s—stories set in romantic places starring brooding heroes asking existential questions. I learned about the centenary on Facebook, where I follow the Swedish Foundation that preserves Bergman’s legacy and estate. “Write like Bergman,” a Facebook post said. “To commemorate the centenary of his birth, Eric Jagberg at SVT created a font based on [Bergman’s] handwriting. Add a touch of drama to your everyday life by having Bergman write your grocery list…”

Promoting a commemorative Bergman box set, the Criterion Collection posted on its Instagram account a series of screenshots from a pivotal moment in Bergman’s Summer Interlude (1951), in which the protagonist of the film, a ballerina whose first love has just died in a tragic accident, announces the end of her faith in God. The dialogue (appearing as English subtitles) is so quintessentially Bergman that it could be mistaken for parody. “Is there no meaning anywhere?” she asks. “No, my child. Nothing means anything in the long run,” her lecherous uncle responds. “I don’t believe God exists. And if he does, I hate him,” she decides. The caption from the Criterion Instagram account reads: “Good morning!”

The triviality of the Bergman font and the pseudo-irony of the Instagram post got me wondering what actually remains of Bergman’s artistic legacy. On his one-hundredth birthday, can we still understand his movies? Long before this year, many of the director’s films had already reached the status of a classic as defined by Mark Twain: work that is revered but not often read—or viewed, in this case. While the majority of Bergman’s movies are available for streaming (largely thanks to Criterion) and cinephiles will always be viewing and discussing them, most audiences today know about his work only through parodies of The Seventh Seal (1957). That film’s famous opening scene, in which a medieval knight plays chess with hooded Death, has been spoofed endlessly in pop culture, from the 1990s farce Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey to the pre-Trump era Colbert Report. The image of the chess match is powerful by itself, without the context of Bergman’s story, and that is why it is still so often revisited. Bergman himself lifted the image from a fresco in a medieval church in Sweden. One wonders whether any entire Bergman film will have as much staying power as that fresco.

 

A common argument against Bergman is that he is fated for oblivion because his movies did not advance the art of film; they were closer to theater than to the pure cinematic art of other art-house directors of that generation, such as Godard, Resnais, and Antonioni. Bergman’s religious themes, it is said, are pretentious and outdated; people don’t brood over God and death anymore the way his characters do. We brood over social conditions and economic injustice, or else we are too happy at the End of History, too secular and self-satisfied to brood at all. Bergman will only be remembered, the argument goes, by scholars, who will credit him for bringing Scandinavian exoticism and a certain “seriousness” to the cinema, as well as for the great actors who graced his movies: Max von Sydow, Harriet Andersson, Bibi Andersson, Ingrid Thulin, Liv Ullmann, et al. But neither his stories nor his ideas will move people the way they once did.

Even if all these criticisms were true—and I’d dispute at least some of them—there is still something else that is of lasting value in Bergman: the unique aesthetic attitude that his movies invite the viewer to assume. This attitude is a holdover from the intimacy of theater; I feel it in Bergman and not Bergman’s flashier and more experimental contemporaries, like Godard. The invitation is there both in his great religious-themed movies (Seventh Seal; The Magician; Through a Glass Darkly; Winter Light; The Silence) and in his psychological depictions of trauma and suffering (Persona; The Passion of Anna; Cries and Whispers). The mood is tense in these films. Bergman wants you to sit, dwell, and think. He does not dazzle you with spectacle. You are placed before human affliction and forced to come to terms with it.

See for example the disturbing yet beautiful scene in Winter Light (1963), written and directed by Bergman in his prime. The movie tells the story of a week in the life of Tomas Ericsson (Gunnar Björnstrand), a Lutheran pastor who is going through a crisis of faith. In one scene, Ericsson’s former lover, Märta (Ingrid Thulin), recites a letter straight into the camera, confessing and explaining her unreciprocated love for Ericsson. The scene lasts for several minutes. All you can do is look at her face and listen to her heartbreaking words, or turn away—there are no other options. Bergman invites you to look at a human face with uncommon intensity. You can see Märta’s soul in her eyes, and hear it in her words. (One recent sign of Bergman’s enduring legacy is Paul Schrader’s film First Reformed, which is, among other things, quite openly an homage to Winter Light and a reimagining of several of its plot points.)

Still from ‘Summer Interlude’ (Courtesy of Criterion Collection)

Or go back to that scene from Summer Interlude. An early Bergman gem, the film stars Marie (Maj-Britt Nilsson), a ballerina nearing the end of her career. She has grown cynical and reluctant to enter into a relationship with anyone. The film forces us to witness the events that made her unable to hope or believe. At the beginning of her career, a decade or so earlier, she falls in love for the first time. We see tragedy strike and the slow destruction of her sense of hope, a destruction simultaneous with her loss of faith. The scene that the Instagram post reproduces is a gutting portrayal of innocence lost in the most extreme way possible. Bergman wants us to witness this. Then, right before the credits, he shows us the rebirth of hope.

The position of the viewer, or the “spectator”—of the passive consumer of theater or media—has been a theme of ethical reflection since Plato’s time if not earlier. Plato places the spectator in the deepest reaches of his Cave, staring at the shadows projected on its walls. The position of the spectator is that of one who does not—and cannot—achieve a correct perspective with regard to the images she sees. That is, she cannot take a truly critical attitude toward what she is receiving. In his essay, “The Emancipated Spectator,” French philosopher Jacques Rancière describes the ethical situation of the spectator as one in which “viewing is the opposite of knowing: the spectator is held before an appearance in a state of ignorance about the process of production of this appearance and about the reality it conceals.” Being a spectator, he says, “is the opposite of acting: the spectator remains immobile in her seat, passive.” Thus, “to be a spectator is to be separated from both the capacity to know and the power to act.”

The central question of Bergman’s legacy is this: Are today’s audiences capable of assuming the irony-free, sincere attitude that Bergman’s movies demand? Can they believe?

Bergman creates an atmosphere that works to resolve this ethical situation, inviting the viewer to witness spiritual and psychological truth rather than just the “appearances” of a spectacle. He challenges the viewer not to look away, but to sit and ponder, to be a witness to human experience in all its agonizing complexity. His movies are often called boring, but that’s only a confused way of saying that they are difficult to endure.

In an excellent essay included in the Criterion Collection’s DVD edition of Bergman’s Through a Glass Darkly (1961), Peter Matthews describes the kind of atmosphere that defines this film and Bergman’s work as a whole—and the demands that such an atmosphere make on the viewer:             

There won’t be much pleasing scenery on display, because this Lutheran minister’s son aims to peel off the carnal husk and plumb the unfathomable dark night of the soul. As with Bergman’s other stripped-down liturgies, the movie requires a sustained act of faith from the audience. A single wisecrack, a flickering doubt, and the high-flown edifice of metaphysical gloom instantly crumbles to dust. Yet, only believe, and you have the whole human civilized condition in a tightly impacted nutshell.

The central question of Bergman’s legacy is this: Are today’s audiences capable of assuming the irony-free, sincere attitude that Bergman’s movies demand? Can they believe?

Which brings me back to the Instagram post. It’s just a joke, and the type of thing you have to do in order to promote any filmmaker’s work in a social media–dominated market. But the post is also a wisecrack, albeit one by a fan. “Good morning” has the effect of deflating the tension of the scene, of making it tolerable. It is a defense mechanism. It expresses the attitude of someone who wants to see a Bergman film but also fears making the psychological commitment to suffer—virtually, perhaps cathartically—that his films require.

That said, I sympathize with whoever made the wisecrack. It isn’t always easy or pleasant to sit through a Bergman movie, to ponder faith, God, life, death, for hours at a time, as intensely as Bergman asks us to. But the skill to do so has to be cultivated if we want to understand his films. And anyway, such a skill is good in itself, something worth cultivating regardless of our interest in Bergman’s movies. Bergman’s invitation to practice this skill, this virtue, is the most important part of his legacy.

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

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


          Re: Sweden, Jansson/Andersson      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Hello Kerstin,

I don't know if you're still around here. I have been trying to reach you. Axelina Jansson is my great grandmother.

Axelina married my great grandfather, Eric Axel Larsson Franzene, in 1887 in Stambaugh, Michigan where they raised their family. They lived in Stambaugh until about 1945 when they moved in with a daughter in Detroit.

I've recently been trying to track down Swedish relatives in the US, and have had some success:

Axelina's sister, Mathilda, went to the US in 1880 and married Carl F. Erickson. They lived in Stambaugh, and have many descendants.

Another of Axelina's sisters, Albertina, married Jan Peter Tegel. Their son, Eric Hjalmer, went to the US in 1896 and married Edla Sofia Rosengren in 1899 in Crystal Falls, Michigan. Eric and Edla had 7 children that I know of.

Albertina and Jan Peter Tegel had 4 other children who went to North America (Johanna Albertina Olivia, Karl Johan, Gustaf Adolf, and Frans Ivar). I have not found them in North America yet.

Another sister was Stina Lisa who married Anders Gustaf Ersson Lund in Sweden in 1874. They had several children who I was able to find in Chicago:
Louisa Bernhardina Lund m. Irving Miller, no children as far as I can tell
Gerda Kristina Lund, lived with Irving and Louisa in Chicago in 1930
Agnes Mathilda Lund, also lived with Irving and Louisa in Chicago in 1930
Nils Eugen Lund m. Florence Krauss, children Lucille and Richard

You mentioned a brother, Carl Alfred Andersson (born 3 Nov 1861). He did indeed go to North America in 1886. He went to Stambaugh, presumably to arrange accomodations for his mother and sister (Axelina) after the death of the father, Anders Jansson. I assume he went to Stambaugh because Mathilda was there. I have not been able to find Carl Alfred in the US, but I have a feeling he stayed, got married and maybe had children.

          Crying Activist Goes Viral for Blocking Deportation of Afghan, but the True Story Is Really Ugly      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
There is more to the story of an Afghan migrant whose deportation from Sweden was blocked by an activist who filmed it on Facebook Live, which then went viral on social media.

The Afghan man who was "rescued" had served jail time for assaulting his wife and daughters, according to the Swedish news website, Fria Tider.

On July 23rd, Swedish activist Elin Ersson refused to take her seat on a flight until the Afghan man was removed from the plane. She said she had heard that among the passengers onboard was an Afghan man who was being deported and that he would be killed if he was sent back to his native Afghanistan.

The video of Ersson's protest was watched by millions of people and was portrayed as an act of heroism. But Ersson later admitted she didn't know anything about the man.

The Afghan, who has not been identified, was convicted for beating his wife and children and served nine months in prison, according to Nyheter Idag, but this was reportedly not why he was deported.

He whipped his daughters with a cord and struck his wife so hard she fell to the floor, and then he reportedly grabbed her head and pounded it against the floor.

Meanwhile, Christian asylum seekers in Sweden are often the real victims of the nation's policy of deportations. CBN News has reported the shocking case of Aideen Strandsson who is actually facing life-threatening danger if deported to Iran.

Faced with a huge political backlash over its open door immigration policy, Sweden has begun sending some migrants back, even if it means certain torture or death; a violation of...Read More HERE

          FDA clears 'Natural Cycles' app for use as digital contraceptive      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Natural Cycles, a mobile phone application that can be used to prevent pregnancy, was cleared by the Food and Drug Administration on Friday for direct-to-consumer marketing in the U.S. The app has been described as "digital contraception" by its maker, the privately-held, Sweden-based NaturalCycles Nordic AB. It uses temperature readings from a basal body thermometer to track a woman's menstrual cycle, as minor temperature rises occur around the time of ovulation. The app tells women when they are fertile, and they should avoid sex or use contraception during that time, according to the FDA. That strategy is an old one, sometimes called "natural family planning" or "the rhythm method," but Natural Cycles says its special approach, which uses a "smart algorithm," is highly effective. According to the FDA, clinical studies involving about 15,600 women found that when used perfectly, the failure rate - meaning women getting pregnant - was 1.8%, while with typical use, or women sometimes not using the app correctly, the failure rate was 6.5%. Women in the study used the app for an average of eight months. By way of comparison, condoms have a perfect use failure rate of 2% and a typical use failure rate of 18%; for IUDs, typical and perfect use failure rates are all below 1%. The FDA compared Natural Cycles' effectiveness to that of any other contraceptive, with Terri Cornelison, assistant director for the health of women in the FDA's Center for Devices and Radiological Health, noting that "no form of contraception works perfectly, so an unplanned pregnancy could still result from correct usage of this device." But a number of alarms have been raised about the app resulting in unintended pregnancies, including in a recent Guardian report whose author reported getting pregnant while using the app. Natural Cycles requires users input temperature data into the app, making it, like other forms of contraception, highly pron
