          10 Cosas insólitas encontradas en los desiertos de Estados Unidos      Cache   Translate Page      

Estas son algunas cosas extrañas que se pueden encontrar en los desiertos de America del Norte. 1. Flechas Gigantes en medio de la nada Muchos turistas están fascinados con estas flechas y han inventado un sin número de historias al respecto. Pero su verdadera explicación se remonta al 1911, cuando la oficina de correos creó estas flechas para que sirvan de GPS para que los aviones tengan una ruta clara para entregar el correo. 2. Una piscina en el desierto El artista austriaco Alfredo Barsuglia, eligió un lugar secreto en el desierto de California para construir una piscina. El jamás reveló la locación, aunque existen rumores de que un grupo de malvivientes la encontraron y la destruyeron. 3. Territorio Alien La carretera 12 de Nevada está completamente vacía, son kilómetros y kilómetros de “nada” y esto ha generado varias historias sobre encuentros extraterrestres e incluso existen tiendas de souvenir en medio de la nada. 4. Un espeluznante Motel de Payasos En medio del desierto de Nevada se encuentra el “Clown Motel”, un alojamiento con temáticas de payasos que se encuentra al lado de un cementerio. En las noches resulta un lugar espeluznante. 5. Un cementerio de videojuegos En los años 80 Atari creó un cementerio para enterrar todos sus videojuegos no-vendidos, que incluían juegos de E.T., su mayor fracaso de la época. En el 2014 fueron desenterrados y vendidos en ebay por cientos e dólares. 6. La cabina telefónica en medio de la nada La cabina del desierto de Mojave se encuentra en medio de la nada, fue construida para los mineros en los años 60 y desde entonces nunca más fue usada. 7. Los autos enterrados Cerca del desierto de Texas se encuentran 10 Cadillacs a medio enterrar, obra del artista Doug Michaels. 8. Una tienda Prada A pesar de su nombre no es una tienda real, sino una galería de arte. Se encuentra en medio del desierto de Texas. La tienda fue robada a los pocos días de su inauguración y los zapatos fueron reemplazados, junto con vidrios más resistentes. 9. La ciudad de los Picapiedras En medio del desierto de Arizona se encuentra “Piedradura”, la legendaria ciudad de los Picapiedras. Durante muchos años fue abandonada y parecía un lugar terrorífico, pero hace poco fue renovado para la atracción de los turistas de carretera. 10. Museo de Bombas Atómicas El museo Titan Missile puedes encontrar una réplica muy realista de como lucía un misil nuclear. Tanto que muchos visitantes han tratado de replicar la llave de lanzamiento.

          NYE Euro Trip Help Please!!      Cache   Translate Page      
Trying to make holiday plans....

This year my holiday trip crew decided on doing a wintry trip in Europe! Eleven full days, spanning Dec 28 - Jan 7 (with Dec 26-27 and Jan 8 as travel days), flying in and out of Prague. I know open-jaw is more ideal but the roundtrip we found was $500 cheaper.

Trying to decide now between Prague > Vienna > Budapest > Prague or Prague > Vienna > Munich > Prague (with may a daytrip or two thrown in).

We want to be in Vienna for New Years Eve.

I've heard great thing about Budapest, but Munich also appeals in terms of daytrips or stopping in smaller Austrian towns along the way.

Any advice?

           1/72 "Black Hussars" of Frederick The Great XVIII Century A.D.       Cache   Translate Page      
1/72 (Type: model figures) This is a plastic model kit, which comes unassembled and unpainted. So glue, model paints and other basic modelling tools are additionally required.

The Prussian army of Frederick II was possibly the best in Europe, and its cavalry were the elite units of that army. The 5th Hussar Regiment, nicknamed the "Black Hussars", were the most elite of those elite cavalry units, and were renowned for both bravery and cruelty in battle.

Prussian hussar regiments were created by Frederick II in 1741, following the patterns set down by Austrian and Hungarian light cavalry going back to the 15th Century. Prussian hussars wore traditional Hungarian uniforms, giving them a distinctive look from other Prussian units.

Hussars were the ideal troops for reconnaissance and raiding missions, often used to harass the enemy army as skirmishers, to overrun unprotected enemy artillery positions, or to run down fleeing enemy troops.

The set contains 19 figures.

          Sotto il fazzoletto di Marco Travaglio      Cache   Translate Page      

Travag

Magari è soltanto colpa di un funzionario di Polizia ignorante, zelante, servile e ansioso di guadagnare “meriti” agli occhi del suo capo o Capitano: il ministro dell’Interno. Ma, anche se è soltanto questo, e non il frutto di precise direttive dall’alto, è bene dire chiaro e tondo che quanto è accaduto sabato scorso a Venezia è vergognoso e oltraggioso: Ottavia Piccolo è stata fermata dalla Polizia alla mostra del Cinema, poche ore prima della cerimonia di premiazione del Leone d’oro, perché portava al collo il fazzoletto dell’Anpi, l’associazione dei partigiani d’Italia. E quel vessillo non era neppure legato a una battaglia politica di questo o quel partito – peraltro perfettamente legittima (contro l’Anpi già si scagliarono, oltre ai berluscones, anche la Boschi e vari renziani ai tempi del referendum costituzionale) –, ma al presidio organizzato lì vicino da una serie di associazioni per denunciare la piaga degli infortuni e delle morti bianche sul lavoro. “Un tema gravissimo e serio di cui troppo poco si parla”, ha spiegato l’attrice: “L’iniziativa era stata autorizzata, a una certa distanza dal tappeto rosso. Era tutto in regola. Nessuno pensava di creare disturbi o disagi. Sono arrivata presto e ho deciso di entrare al Palazzo del Cinema. Ai controlli di sicurezza sono stata fermata da un giovane funzionario della polizia di Stato. Pensavo volesse solo controllare la borsa, invece mi ha vietato di entrare. Indicava il mio collo. Lì per lì non riuscivo a capire. Mi hanno detto che non potevo entrare con quel fazzoletto. Ho spiegato che era il fazzoletto dell’Associazione Nazionale Partigiani d’Italia, a cui sono iscritta. Ho chiesto se conoscevano l’Anpi e cosa rappresenta. Niente da fare. Non mi facevano passare con quel fazzoletto. Continuavano a ripetermi che dovevano controllare. Ero basita, poi mi sono indignata: sono una cittadina libera e orgogliosa di indossare il fazzoletto dell’Anpi. Finalmente un’altra funzionaria è intervenuta e dopo un po’ mi han dato il via libera. Se non ci fosse da piangere per il nostro Paese, ci riderei su. Probabilmente anche la polizia è vittima spaventata di questo clima molto poco accogliente, violento e rabbioso”.

Torna in mente quel che accadeva negli anni bui di B., quando a Piero Ricca – noto contestatore milanese del Caimano – veniva applicato un Daspo preventivo (e illegale) perché non si avvicinasse ai comizi e ai raduni di Forza Italia. Episodi del genere alimentano non solo qui, ma anche all’estero, quella descrizione macchiettistica e superficiale dell’Italia governata dai “populisti” e dunque in preda a orde barbariche e squadracce fasciste dedite alle peggiori nefandezze.
È la leggenda nera che ha indotto il neocommissario Onu per i diritti umani Michelle Bachelet a inviare ispettori in Italia e in Austria “per valutare il riferito forte incremento di atti di violenza e di razzismo contro migranti, persone di discendenza africana e Rom”. Una mossa che ha offerto il destro a Salvini di ricordarle che “l’Italia negli ultimi anni ha accolto 700 mila immigrati, molti dei quali clandestini, e non ha mai ricevuto collaborazione dagli altri Paesi europei” e “non accetta lezioni da nessuno, tantomeno dall’Onu”, dove siedono impunemente Stati che “ignorano diritti elementari come la libertà e la parità tra uomo e donna”. E al ministro degli Esteri Moavero di rammentare alla gentile signora “che l’Italia è ormai da anni impegnata in prima linea nel salvataggio e nell’accoglienza delle persone che tentano la traversata nel Mediterraneo, impiegando più fondi e risorse di qualsiasi altro Paese”, oltre alle “azioni concrete di sostegno ai Paesi di origine e di transito dei migranti, con progetti di cooperazione e di assistenza in svariati settori”. Se non fosse un felpato diplomatico, Moavero potrebbe aggiungere qualche promemoria sui nostri accoglienti vicini di casa: non solo il truce Orbán e i suoi degni compari del fronte Visegrad, ma anche i democraticissimi spagnoli che, dai tempi di Zapatero, usano di tanto in tanto sparare a vista sui migranti nelle loro enclave marocchine di Ceuta e Melilla, senza ricevere né reprimende visite dell’Onu; o i civilissimi e generosissimi francesi, che sotto la presidenza Macron si sono distinti per aver incriminato un cittadino che accompagnava in auto una migrante incinta e respinto con le maniere forti aspiranti profughi alle frontiere di Ventimiglia e Bardonecchia, anche con sconfinamenti e scorribande dei loro gendarmi in territorio italiano, il tutto senza nemmeno un rabbuffo dalle Nazioni Unite.
Ma ciascuno deve guardare in casa propria. E non possiamo dimenticare la macelleria messicana che si scatenò al G8 di Genova nel 2001 non appena il centrodestra approdò al Viminale, per non parlare dei vari casi Cucchi, Aldrovandi, Uva e molti altri simili. Ora la “mano libera alle forze dell’ordine” annunciata da Salvini per “fare pulizia” può indurre in tentazione non solo le tante teste calde che albergano nella popolazione, soprattutto nelle periferie urbane, ma anche qualche settore particolarmente esagitato della Polizia. Perciò l’episodio di Venezia deve suonare come un campanello di allarme per un prefetto certamente democratico come Franco Gabrielli. Ottavia Piccolo, con la sua meravigliosa intransigenza mista a grazia, l’ha commentato così: “Se non fosse preoccupante per l’Italia, quel che mi è accaduto sfiorerebbe il ridicolo. Ma in che paese viviamo?”. La migliore risposta è che il funzionario allergico al fazzoletto dell’Anpi sia subito individuato e punito con la peggiore delle sanzioni: non la sospensione o la rimozione, che ne farebbe un martire; ma un corso accelerato di storia della Resistenza antifascista, su cui si fonda la Costituzione che ciascun poliziotto ha il dovere di difendere, non di tradire.

Non ero a conoscenza che ci si poteva iscrivere all'ANPI anche senza essere stato un vero partigiano. Se lo sapevo non avrei deriso il mio povero zio e, forse mi ci sarei iscritto anche io, dal momento che sono stato quasi coinvolto mio malgrado ad esserlo già all'età di circa 6 anni

          Stecchi finalmente decolla in Austria!      Cache   Translate Page      
LINZ – E dopo aver saltato per ben 12 volte tra i 5,55 e i 5,60 (quattro volte questa misura, suo primato personale) finalmente Claudio Michel Stecchi sfonda il muro “tabù” proprio dei 5,60, entrando forse in una nuova dimensione. Nella gara di Linz che si è tenuta oggi, infatti, Stecchi è salito al suo nuovo primato personale di 5,67, venendo battuto solo dal nuovo fenomeno russo Timur Morgunov, primo con 5,82. Da dire che una prova a 5,72 dell’azzurro è stata davvero molto buona. Con 5,67 Stecchi diventa il sesto italiano delle liste all-time. L’evento si è tenuto al museo d’Arte Lentos. Qui sotto il video integrale dell’evento.
          Spettacolare Stecchi: la sequenza di una gara che vale il minimo per gli Europei      Cache   Translate Page      
Che magnifica notizia ci giunge oggi da Linz, Austria, con Claudio Michel Stecchi che timbra il suo nuovo personale, migliorando la quota che aveva raggiunto nell’ormai lontano 2012 a Bressanone e Ancona indoor. Una misura di 5,60 poi eguagliata lo scorso anno a Liegi. Questa volta però il PB è davvero consistente perché aggiunge ben 7 centimetri per portare il 26enne finanziere a quota 5,67, sesto azzurro di sempre nelle graduatorie all time. E la storia della gara lascia ben sperare che non sia finita qui. Stecchi stasera è entrato a 5,30 superato facilmente per poi proseguire con 5,40 superato alla seconda prova e di nuovo 5,50 alla prima. Qui un errore a 5,60 che in altre occasioni sarebbe stato il prodromo della fine e invece… Arrivato il 5,60 al secondo tentativo il saltatore fiorentino è andato a valicare i 5,67 addirittura alla prima, con grande sicurezza. E anche una delle prove al successivo 5,72 – l’ultima – è stata molto buona, al punto da far sperare in qualcosa di più (dalle interviste del dopogara abbiamo poi appreso che in quest’ultimo caso aveva preso a prestito l’asta più dura di Morgunov, con ovvi problemi di adattamento). Stecchi è dunque giunto secondo [...]

Crystal Bridges completes the American story with "Art for a New Understanding."

Is Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art the most woke museum in the country? That's what The Washington Post suggested in an article earlier this year as the museum began to reinstall its early American galleries to, Director Rod Bigelow said, better reflect "the complexity of the American story."

The early American galleries were initially dominated by images of patriarchy and aristocracy and unspoiled scenery — the 18th century Franks family; George Washington; the Marquis de Lafayette; Mrs. Theodore Atkinson and her flying squirrel; the poet and artist gentlemen of Asher Durand's "Kindred Spirits"; romantic landscapes by Cole, Innes, Cropsey et al., Bierstadt's nostalgic scenes of Native Americans fishing and George de Forest Brush's "The Indian and the Lily." A thematic reassembly of works in the first galleries now pairs such works with a 19th century Salish cradleboard, Lakota Siouxan beaded skin pouches, an 18th century portrait of a Spanish lady; a 20th century painting, "Florida Mexicana," by Alfredo Ramos Martinez; Nari Ward's 27-foot-long installation "We the People," the words spelled out in shoestrings. The themes of the galleries are painted on the wall in both English and Spanish: The full complement of America has been invited to the party. As that redo was going on, over in the temporary exhibition galleries was the superb "Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power," a show of work by outstanding African-American artists working from the 1960s to 1980s.

Now comes "Art for a New Understanding: Native Voices, 1950s to Now," an exhibition of more than 80 artworks, including painting, video, sculpture, performance art, photography and more, opening Oct. 6. The works address contemporary issues of social justice, ridicule stereotype and show Native artists to be not a part of a solemn, monolithic culture, but as diverse as America itself, with a keen wit sharpened to a fine edge by historical affronts (like genocide) by white America.

One of the artists whose work will be at Crystal Bridges is Kent Monkman, a Canadian First Nation artist whose work would be rightly shown next to Bierstadt's "Indian Encampment." While Bierstadt renders an idyllic scene of Natives swimming in a creek near their tipis, Monkman's arch landscape "History Is Painted by the Victors" shows a Native man in high-heeled and thigh-high red patent leather boots painting beside a mountain lake and surrounded by nude white men who've cast off blue uniforms. A couple of the men are boxing, others are wrestling, one's playing a panpipe, most are languid. Monkman's used his alter-ego, warrior-in-drag Chief Eagle Testickle, to add a bit of daring snark to history painting. Monkman is a terrific artist; this work is reason enough to go to Crystal Bridges for "Art for a New Understanding." He's also painted a takeoff on "Kindred Spirits"; instead of friends Thomas Cole and William Cullen Bryant, Monkman's put a Native and a white man fighting on the rock; let's hope that is also in the show.

Also enlightening: a 1990 photograph of laughing artists Lisa Mayo, Gloria Miguel and Muriel Miguel, who in 1976 founded the feminist Spiderwoman Theater, the country's longest-running Native female theatrical company; Shan Goshan's two baskets, "Removal," in which the artist has cut a copy of the Indian Removal Act of 1830 into thin strips and used them to weave traditional Cherokee baskets; and from Crystal Bridges' own collection, James Lavadour's landscape-reminiscent abstracts "Shake."

"Art for a New Understanding" runs through Jan. 7. Crystal Bridges has scheduled all sorts of programs in conjunction with the show, including painting and sculpture workshops, films, artist talks and more. On view now is "In Conversation: Will Wilson and Edward Curtis," an exhibition that pairs photographs of contemporary Native Americans by Wilson with the early 20th century photographs of Curtis.

Pablo Picasso, Robert Mapplethorpe, Henri Matisse, Kazimir Malevich — these are among the artists whose works Swiss-born Martin Muller of San Francisco has collected. Muller has a Little Rock connection — he lived here in the 1970s — and it was in this town, the Arkansas Arts Center says, that he began to explore post-war American painting. Muller will return to Little Rock for the opening of "Independent Vision: Modern and Contemporary Art from the Martin Muller Collection," opening Friday, Sept. 28, at the Arts Center. The exhibition of 89 works is a survey of diverse modern and contemporary works from the old and new world, with works by such 20th century masters Corbusier (Swiss-French), Picasso (Spanish), Warhol (American) and Malevich (Russian), and contemporaries Gottfried Helnwein (Austrian), Joel Besmar (Cuban) and Frederick Hammersley (American).

Muller moved to Little Rock from Switzerland for a job with a Swiss-American company and while here spent time in the Arts Center's Elizabeth P. Taylor library familiarizing himself with American masters. In the late 1970s he decided to move west and get into the gallery business. He founded his gallery, Modernism Inc., in 1979.

As he traveled across the country to San Francisco, he's quoted in an Arts Center news release as saying, "I marveled at discovering masterpieces of modern American art, from Edward Hopper to Barnett Newman, Mark Rothko, Jackson Pollock, and later, the Pop and Minimalist artists, especially Donald Judd. Now, some 40 years later, it gives me great joy to have come full circle back to Little Rock and be able to share at the Arkansas Arts Center some of the wonderful artworks gathered along the way."

The show runs through Dec. 30.

          Ufo, un anno di indagini e avvistamenti anche in lucchesia      Cache   Translate Page      

“Seppur mantenendo la base e gli insegnamenti di Josef Allen Hynek ritengo che per certi aspetti l’ufologia debba evolversi e adeguarsi coi tempi moderni .

Infatti durante le molte indagini svolte da A.R.I.A. (associazione ricerca italiana aliena) sono stati inseriti metodi e  strumenti innovativi , tra questi il drone  almeno 6 anni di impiego per migliorare l’indagine della conformazione geologica del punto di avvistamento. Senza contare , per fortuna, dei mille siti e  software per i tracciamenti live di ogni tipo, da aerei, navi, palloni sonda, meteo, satelliti ecc . Anche la collaborazione esterna con ufologi indipendenti è un nuovo modo rivoluzionario di interazione e scambio di informazioni e pareri tra questi l’ottimo ufologo Emilio Acunzo Ecco perchè ritengo che l’ufologia Italiana in sessantanni non abbia fatto passi avanti , anzi sotto certi aspetti si è fossilizzata  rimanendo emarginata nel confine tra comico e fantascienza, mentre meriterebbe davvero molta più attenzione .. forse chi ha operato in questo campo fino ad oggi in Italia non lo ha fatto al meglio”.
La nota arriva dall’associazione che si occupa di analizzare le varie segnalazioni di Ufo:
“Tra le tante indagini sugli avvistamenti segnalati provenienti da tutta italia A.R.I.A. si è occupata anche di altri fenomeni come il contattismo, il ricercatore e ufologo Angelo Maggioni ad esempio fù il primo in assoluto a rivelare il retroscena di Bruno Borges  , il ragazzo  scomparso in Brasile l’anno scorso   , il suo caso divenne un caso mondiale ! Non solo il ricercatore indagò anche sulla scomparsa prematura del collega ufologo Max Spiers , Maggioni contattò la mamma e scoprì come morì Spiers e su cosa indagava ! Ma anche il bambino indaco Russo Boriska che disse di provenire dal centro di Marte. Un’altra indagine che ha visto tutto il team di A.R.I.A. coinvolta è il più famoso caso ufologico Italiano di contattismo  conosciuto come Caso amicizia o meglio W56 , tale caso portò un duro scontro tra il ricercatore ufologo Ligure savonese Angelo Maggioni e l’ufologo Roberto Pinotti! Si è potuto constatare da svariate documentazioni in parte reperibili sul web per mezzo di Romano Di Bernardo e una parte tramite mail personali e contatti con persone sia coinvolte che a conoscenza di fatti che riguardavano il suddetto caso. Così si scopre che il Caso Amicizia è fallace e pieno di contraddizioni  e privo di qualsiasi prova oggettiva. L’ufologo Angelo Maggioni spiega che tutte le prove smentiscono tale caso , dalla foto di Kenio che in realtà è più terrestre di noi , parrebbe essere un ragazzo di nome Patrick abitante in Svizzera , al mistero dell’Adriatico che vide anche la morte di due fratelli  nel periodo in cui proprio in quel punto di mare avvenivano trivellazioni particolari  e dannose dove ne parlo a questo link ( https://associazionericercaitalianaaliena.wordpress.com/2018/08/22/caso-amicizia-sempre-piu-imbarazzante-affonda-nelle-trivellazioni/ ) leggetelo per capire meglio…Non solo , come lo stesso Di Bernardo afferma in una intervista ( che trovate anche sul nostro gruppo facebook) anche i famosi ufo di Ghibaudi sembrerebbero provenire da un luogo molto terrestre..LA STANDA  !!! Un caso che è affondato e che in qualche modo ha messo in imbarazzo tutta l’ufologia!! Oggi mi stupisco che c’è ancora chi và in giro per convegni o che scrive libri affermando che tale caso sia reale e credibile !!Questo è un danno all’ufologia ed è per questo che A.R.I.A. non solo prende le distanze ma cerca una seria e vera collaborazione con la scienza, Maggioni infatti negli ultimi articoli spiega come secondo lui potrebbero essere andati i fatti e il cammino evolutivo della Terra, dell’Uomo e degli Alieni ( T.U.A.) coinvolgendo sia la scienza con Luca la prima cellula primordiale e la storia confrontando e ricercando nei siti come quello di Gobekli Tepe risposte ! Ma tornando agli avvistamenti ufologici tra il 2017/2018 ecco che A.R.I.A. propone in questa raccolta video i migliori avvistamenti dell’anno. Ovviamente la Liguria è presente e molto attiva e che quest’anno ci ha regalato anche diversi episodi di flottillas !! un numero consistente che può variare dalla decina al centinaio di oggetti volanti non identificati tutti assieme nella stessa zona , in questo caso le flottillas sono state avvistate a Savona ben due volte. Ma il caso più famoso a livello  nazionale ( ne ha parlato Ansa, il Secolo XIX , il Giornale, la Stampa, il Quotidiano, Libero,   il messaggero ecc ecc) è stato indubbiamente quello avvenuto a Seborga (IM)  per opera di un rappresentate delle forze dell’ordine.a seguire quello di Corio (privo però di documentazione video e fotografica)   Poi segue quello di Pigna (IM) , assolutamente importanti anche gli avvistamenti in Toscana a Capannori   ben due casi , uno di questi sarebbe molto somigliante ad un caso del 1972 avvenuto  in Austria   , un altro caso interessante è stato anche quello di Catania da noi esaminato e pubblicato nel 2017,due sfere  rimangono sospese nell’aria per poi spostarsi e scomparire,ma anche a Ivrea , Desenzano Del Garda , Porto Recanati  , Nizza (FR) , Genova,  persino due casi all’estero a Cleveland!! Un anno di intenso lavoro e di segnalazioni , ultima affascinante avvenuta durante l’eclissi Lunare  dove un abitante  della Toscana col suo telescopio ha catturato un oggetto davanti alla Luna poco prima dell’oscuramento. Sebbene sembrano tanti gli avvistamenti, l’ufologo savonese Maggioni spiega che  in realtà il dato in confronto 2016/17 è in calo ( ma non è ancora finito l’anno) meno avvistamenti , più concentrati in particolari giorni e indubbiamente non più solo sfere ma veri e propri UFO dalle forme più particolari .   In conclusione si può dire che  la Liguria , la Toscana e il Piemonte quest’anno conducono la classifica come regioni più attive e più visitate da oggetti volanti non identificati! Inoltre A.R.I.A. quest’anno è stata protagonista in diversi eventi radiofonici prima a radio Stella con il gruppo Italian Paranormal Research , poi a radio radio 104.5 e nel programma televisivo Salsedine a Viareggio condotto dal famoso Fabrizio Diolaiuti di cui è stato anche autore  di alcuni format per la RAI e Mediaset.  Ma anche l’autore ligure Luca Valentini ha dedicato un capitolo ad A.R.I.A. e al presidente e fondatore ufologo Angelo Maggioni, nel libro dal titolo il Cinque per Cento  che spiega appunto la difficile ricerca e indagine sugli avvistamenti che spesso vengono spiegati ma altre volte, quel 5% , invece non trovano spiegazioni scientifiche plausibili”.

Commento di Oliviero Mannucci: Caro Angelo Maggioni, sono stato un dirigente del CUN  e ti confermo in pieno quanto hai detto. L'ufologia in Italia non è quella di Roberto Pinotti e dei suoi seguaci di loggia. Il primo, oramai più che degli alieni, avrebbe bisogno di una badante. Mi ricordo il clamoroso caso dell'UFO Kinder , e ora il caso "Amicizia", che ha più ombre che luci.  Non parliamo poi dell'ignoranza dei suoi seguaci più stretti, che vorrebbero incontrare gli alieni, eppoi non sono capaci di rispettare chi in nome di una cultura spirituale millenaria è vegetariano come il sottoscritto, che si è trovato ad essere bersagliato a tavola, dalla sagra dei luoghi comuni sui vegetariani da parte di chi si nutre di cadaveri e farebbe meglio a stare zitto. Devo avere ancora circa 700 Euro dal sig. Pinotti, per gli articoli da me scritti su UFO Notiziario. Insomma il CUN, non è certamente un punto di riferimento dell'ufologia italiana e tanto meno di correttezza. Ma per fortuna ci sono tanti ricercatori indipendenti, compreso il sottoscritto, che si stanno organizzando per fare una ufologia slegata da ogni gruppo di controllo occulto. Insomma si respira un A.R.I.A nuova finalmente!

"… although his diminutive size and weight(Pedrosa is 5’2″ tall and weighs 110 pounds) sometimes prevent his preferred bike settings from working for larger riders." Exactly. Signing Dani to be your test rider is similar to signing #93 as a test rider, but for different reasons. What these guys can make work for themselves doesn't really translate to normal riders. Dani is too small for his preferred setup to be relevant for larger riders, and Marc is too much of a ride-around-the-issue, edge-of-insanity, hard-charging freak of nature for his input to be of any great use to lesser mortals.

Authored by Tom Luongo,

The real danger to the current institutional order was just demonstrated in Sweden. While I’ve talked at length about the potential financial contagion stemming from the implosion of multiple emerging market currencies it is the growing political crisis in Europe that will shape our future.

Sweden is The Land where Socialism Works, or so I keep getting told by ignorant leftists who cling to the power fantasy that central planning is the only way to make the trains run on time.

Central planning does do that, but only to deliver people into the nightmare of social disorder brought on by the disruption of the natural flow of capital.

Venezuela, South Africa, Soviet Union, post WWII Britain ... you get the idea.

But, the effects of the collectivist mindset are far more pernicious than those extreme examples.  And it is important we understand how little policies grow into big problems over time due to shaping people’s decisions through government edicts.

Corps Insanity

There is no better example for what I’m talking about than the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.  A completely useless organization which sucks up billions in tax money to straighten rivers, build dams and alter the landscape to fit the needs of whoever paid Congress the most in lobbying money that year.

They engage in projects that cannot easily be done in the free market, nor should be done. But their activity creates downstream effects from their meddling which multiply over years and lead to problems which are orders of magnitude larger than they would have ever become naturally.

The Red Tides occurring off the Florida coast now are a political cudgel being swung at Governor Rick Scott to prevent him from moving up to U.S. Senator over his ‘environmental record.’  Now I’m no fan of Skeletor, as we call him down here, but these charges are simply grandstanding.

Because anyone who has an ounce of decency, intellectual honesty or passing acquaintance with history knows that the seeds of South Florida’s environmental nightmares are a product of the Corps of Engineers altering the landscape to serve Big Sugar and Big Corn.

These are two crops we shouldn’t even be growing (along with Soy and rapeseed) no less subsidizing due to their horrific effects on human health and development.  And this is another downstream effect of government meddling.

The real epidemic in the U.S. sapping our national wealth is not the rise of opioid use (though terrible) or the trade deficit it is diabetes and auto-immune diseases brought on by two generations of bad diet and ruinous food.

Health care and Big Pharma cost us trillions in easily avoided health problems due to the erroneous idea that human dietary needs are well-served by eating like my goats.

They aren’t.  Hell, even my goats spend most of their lives in ketosis.

This, again, is a product of government meddling into our food choices by diverting capital via farm subsidies and other bureaucratic structures built through the collective action of the ballot box.

So, a $200 million river straightening project turns into a multi-generational multi-trillion dollar loss of productive capital trying to keep people alive a little longer after a lifetime of eating like pigs being fattened for slaughter.

Okay, maybe that was the plan overall.

Rising Tides, Falling Boats

But, back to Sweden.  The results from the Swedish elections are another data point that populism is, well, popular.  The surge in popularity of the Sweden Democrats was strong enough to throw into flux the formation of a new government as support for the ruling Social Democrats has collapsed.

Where have we heard this story before?  Oh, only like all over freaking Europe.

What started with Brexit, carried across the pond to Trump, and spread to the continent in Italy, France, Poland, Austria, Hungary, Bulgaria, Romania, Russia, the Czech Republic and Germany which has now crossed back over the Baltic Sea to Sweden.

And still the political Left refuses to acknowledge the legitimacy of the concerns of voters, clinging desperately to the narrative that this is simply fringe ‘alt-right’ or ‘far-right Nazism’ rearing its head in an adolescent ab reaction to their very sensible and humanitarian policies.

They are supported in this delusion by the architects of the immigration nightmare in Europe who are quick to label anything vaguely sniffing of cultural pride as ‘extremism’ to shame apolitical and conscientious folks into staying within this failing paradigm of cultural suicide.

It is not working and thank the gods for it.

Whether the Sweden Democrats’ share of the vote is large enough for them to enter the government is irrelevant in the end.  Sweden’s political system is backward, but, hey, who am I to judge.

No one, actually, and that is the point.

The surge in popularity is what matters. And if they are excluded and things in Sweden continue as they are, then it will only serve up an even bigger voter backlash the next time they go to the polls if the government can even survive that long.

What’s is relevant is the contagion brought on by the downstream effects of one government intervention begetting a complete overhaul of the political landscape.

Europe is balkanizing.

Cultural Suicide Postponed

National cultures and community pride are sources of societal strength. The proponents of the Open Society and cultural homogenization are tone-deaf to the realities of forcing change because it is ‘the right thing to do’ or ‘the right thing to advocate.’

All it does is betray their totalitarian urge to force people they look down on to be better by first demonizing them for being racist and then acting out their own racism by forcing on their political opponents a life they do not want.

And the minute these long-suffering, abused people stand up for themselves and say, “No more” to their once peaceful communities being torn asunder by acid-throwing, gang-raping, rudderless immigrant males their reaction is to cry, “Racist!”

But that’s not working anymore.  What is working is the two-edged sword of political power.  Those that live by it will eventually hang from the rafters by it unless they willingly step aside and admit defeat with a modicum of grace and humility.

Given the reactions from the politically powerful all across Europe and the U.S. to this critical shift in the political landscape that is the last thing on their minds.

And that’s the most tragic irony of this entire period of history.  The very people who champion communitarianism and democracy as their highest ideal fear the power they have used so indiscriminately will be used against them when they lose it.

And their losses are mounting.

That’s what is inflaming their hatred and violence.  Abject terror of the backlash.  It is why this political contagion is the catalyst for global financial and economic collapse.  It’s already here in the form of emerging market upheaval. Faith in the institutions which circumscribe our lives is what props up currencies and, ultimately, asset values.

Politics got us into this mess.  It will not get us out of it.  The Great Reset is coming.  And you need to be prepared.

Bannon's latest play

by digby



My Salon column this morning:

Here's a story that won't merit a lot of discussion in the American press because our political circus and culture war is so loud and raucous that we can't hear much else:
Sweden headed for a hung parliament after an election on Sunday that saw the popularity of the nationalist Sweden Democrats surge, as one of Europe’s most liberal nations turns right amid fears over immigration.
Sweden is a social-democratic nation with excellent services, benefits and a very high standard of living. Most Swedish citizens have traditionally held very liberal views on just about everything. But the far right made big gains in this year's election because of immigration and, frankly, race. That's what right-wing "nationalism" in 2018 comes down to. Welcome to our world.

Sweden isn't the first European country to go this way in recent years. Hungary, Austria, Italy and (in its own manner) Britain have taken rightward turns, and those political movements are picking up steam all over the world. I won't try to analyze the reasons for this. There are hundreds of people trying to sort out where all this is coming from. Let's just say there are tectonic forces at play, from migration caused by war, economic dislocation and climate change to income inequality, corruption and God knows what else. But regardless of the reasons, there is no doubt that something is afoot and it's gaining ground.

Here in the United States, our version of this phenomenon is Trumpism, an especially cartoonish form of the right-wing nationalism we see elsewhere. Donald Trump is a ridiculous celebrity with a simple-minded set of talking points he's been spouting for decades, along with some recently acquired hate-radio tropes deployed to get his followers excited. Nonetheless, Trumpism is best understood as a variant of the global "alt-right" movement devoted to martial chauvinism, authoritarianism, anti-liberalism, nativism and racism. Perhaps the primary exponent of the current U.S. iteration is former Trump adviser Steve Bannon, who is also the former chairman of Breitbart News and now a propaganda filmmaker.

Bannon's last foray into electoral politics didn't end well when he went down to Alabama to stump for Judge Roy Moore in his ill-fated Senate race. You may recall that his pitch was almost entirely a series of attacks on the Republican leadership:




Bannon has been traveling all over Europe the past few months, making contacts and forming alliances with the various right-wing movements across the Atlantic, observing how they become dominant in their respective conservative coalitions and forming a new organization he calls "the Movement." Now he has rushed back to the U.S. to join the midterm fray, hoping to foment the paranoia and grievance that defines both Trump and his followers and to reframe the November election as a war for survival.

This weekend saw the release date of Bannon's new film, "Trump@War." It portrays the Democrats and the media as allied against Donald Trump and, by association, his followers. This strategy goes hand in hand with Bannon's recent proclamation that the Republicans need to run on impeachment.



There's good reason to believe Bannon is doing at least some of this in order to get back in Trump's good graces, but according to Jonathan Swan at Axios, it isn't working. Or at least it hasn't up until now. However, the second front in Trump's war may prove to be more fruitful. In an interview with Reuters over the weekend, Bannon described the New York Times' recent anonymous op-ed by a senior administration official as an attempted "coup" and compared Trump to Abraham Lincoln, which he knows the president loves:
“What you saw the other day was as serious as it can get. This is a direct attack on the institutions,” Bannon said during a flying visit to Italy. “This is a coup, okay ... This is a crisis. The country has only ever had such a crisis in the summer of 1862 when General McClellan and the senior generals, all Democrats in the Union Army, deemed that Abraham Lincoln was not fit and not competent to be commander in chief,” Bannon said. “There is a cabal of Republican establishment figures who believe Donald Trump is not fit to be president of the United States. This is a crisis."

He also claimed that he's not a "conspiracy guy," which will come as a surprise to anyone who's read his writings or watched his films.

Bannon is a white nationalist propagandist who has openly proclaimed that he wants to create chaos and blow up the existing world order and start over. If he had never been involved with the Trump campaign and hired into the White House he would probably be dismissed as a pseudo-intellectual Alex Jones. But the imprimatur of his association with the president gives him credibility in foreign capitals and could very well be influential in the Trump White House once again if this spirited defense against virtually everyone -- the Democrats, the media and the GOP establishment -- convinces Trump that he's a loyal soldier after all.

The fight between Trump and the Democrats is a natural political battle, and Trump has repeatedly insisted that he views the media as his enemy. But the ongoing leaking from Trump insiders and the anonymous op-ed could represent a tremendous opportunity for Bannon to flog his crusade against the Republican establishment, which he has considered to be Job One since his Breitbart days.

But he may have been spending too much time in Europe lately. Bannon has apparently failed to notice that if at one point there was a civil war within the Republican Party, the establishment has unconditionally surrendered. No Republican with any institutional power has done a thing to stop Trump. Some insiders have leaked self-serving stories to the press in order to reassure waffling suburban Republicans that they needn't worry about Trump blowing up the world. That looks a lot like an effort to help the party keep control and further empower his administration.

Sure, Trump is a crude demagogue. But Republicans have been priming the resentments of their white racist base for decades. How much of a surprise can this really be? The program he's enacting is their program, which they can't bring themselves to oppose no matter how crazy he sounds. They're just worried about losing those voters who find Trump to be too boorish. He doesn't understand that you're supposed to dog-whistle this stuff so you don't humiliate the nice suburban Republicans in front of the neighbors.

Bannon has said that the far-right European parties are about a year ahead of the United States. He's got that wrong. The European right may be getting its mojo back after a long hiatus, but the American right has been pushing a racist, nationalist politics for decades. It's just talking about it more openly now.

          4 Transfer Pemain Paling Mengesankan Liga Inggris 2018-2019      Cache   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, London - Kompetisi Liga Inggris dikenal sebagai salah satu yang terbaik di dunia selama beberapa tahun terakhir, sehingga banyak pemain yang berminat hijrah ke Negeri Ratu Elizabeth tersebut.

Dengan dukungan finansial yang kuat, klub-klub Liga Inggris bersedia menggelontorkan uang yang cukup banyak. Hal itu tidak lain demi memboyong pemain incaran.

Selain itu, klub-klub Liga Inggris juga terlihat sangat sibuk pada bursa transfer musim panas 2018. Ada banyak pemain yang ditebus dengan biaya yang jauh dari kata sedikit termasuk Alisson Becker dan Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Setelah berjalan empat pekan, banyak individu-individu yang sudah tampil mengesankan bersama tim barunya. Meski terbilang masih baru, mereka bisa membuat kejutan dengan penampilannya di lapangan.

Berikut ini empat calon pembelian terbaik untuk Liga Inggris musim ini, seperti dilansir Sportskeeda

1. Naby Keita

Gelandang anyar Liverpool, Naby Keita, mengaku sudah sedari bocah menyukai The Reds. (dok. Liverpool)#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Naby Keita bergabung dengan Liverpool pada musim panas tahun ini usai dibeli dari RB Leipzig. Sejak bergabung, Keita tak tergantikan di lini tengah The Reds.

Gelandang Timnas Guinea ini selalu tampil dari empat laga Liga Inggris sejauh ini. Keita menjadi penyeimbang lapangan tengah Liverpool.

Gaya bermainnya langsung nyetel dengan pasukan Jurgen Klopp, yang mengandalkan pressing tinggi. Keita akan banyak membantu Liverpool dalam persaingan merebut gelar Liga Inggris musim ini.

2. Matteo Guendouzi

Guendouzi merupakan salah satu rising star di Premier League musim ini. Penampilan gelandang Arsenal itu mampu mencuri perhatian dan mendapat banyak pujian.

Pemain asal Prancis itu sudah tampil empat kali sebagai starter di Premier League sejauh ini. Padahal dia berstatus sebagai pemain baru tetapi penampilannya cukup mengesankan.

Guendouzi baru didatangkan dari klub Ligue 2 FC Lorient pada musim panas. Pemain berusia 19 tahun itu cukup menjanjikan dan bisa menjadi bintang Arsenal di masa mendatang.

 

3. Aleksandar Mitrovic

Striker berusia 23 tahun itu sudah menjadi pembelian terbaik untuk klub promosi Premier League tersebut. Mitrovic mendapatkan kontrak lima tahun dengan biaya transfer yang dikabarkan mencapai 22 juta pounds.

Mitrovic awalnya direkrut dengan status pinjaman pada bulan Januari dan kemudian memberikan dampak yang besar dalam membawa Fulham promosi ke Premier League. Setelah mencetak 12 gol dalam 17 pertandingan musim lalu untuk Fulham, Mitrovic kembali menunjukkan ketajamannya dengan memimpin perburuan Sepatu Emas dengan empat gol dari empat pertandingan.

Fulham menjalani start yang bagus di Premier League musim ini berkat ketajaman Mitrovic dan jika mereka ingin menjauh dari degradasi maka pemain Serbia itu diharapkan bisa terus mencetak gol.

Gelandang Italia itu pindah ke Chelsea dengan biaya 57,4 juta pounds untuk mengikuti jejak mantan pelatih Napoli Maurizio Sarri di Premier League.

Jorginho sekarang menjadi pemain penting Chelsea. Mereka menjalani start yang cukup bagus dengan menyapu bersih semua kemenangan termasuk saat melawan tim rival sekota Arsenal. Jorginho menjalankan lini tengah bersama N'Golo Kante dan mencatatkan operan terbanyak di Premier League sejauh ini dengan 418 dan rata-rata sekitar 108 tiap pertandingan.

Dengan satu gol dan akurasi passing 92%, Jorginho membuat Chelsea tidak sia-sia mengeluarkan banyak uang dan bisa membawa mereka meraih gelar pada musim pertamanya.

          Ischitella e il suo mondo feudale (di Michele Eugenio Di Carlo)      Cache   Translate Page      
La torre di Varano
Il mondo feudale di Ischitella ricostruito attraverso le famiglie i cui cognomi si sono mai estinte. Questo il tema al centro del libro di Giuseppe Laganella “La storia di Ischitella dalle origini alla fine del ‘600 attraverso i cognomi estinti” e della interessante serata in cui l'opera è stata presentata. I lavori sono stati moderati dai giornalisti Michela Mariella e Giuseppe Saldutto, relatori l’europarlamentare Barbara Matera e Michele Eugenio Di Carlo, che hanno parlato alla presenza del sindaco Carlo Guerra e dell’assessore alla cultura.
Pubblichiamo, di seguito, la qualificata relazione dello storico e saggista Michele Eugenio Di Carlo, che riesce mirabilmente a dar conto dello "spirito dell'epoca".
* * *
Ischitella [1], come Devia, Vico e Peschici, molto probabilmente venne fondata nel X secolo da Slavi che, prima imperversanti per saccheggi e razzie lungo le coste del nord Gargano,  nell'anno 970 furono chiamati da papa Giovanni XIV a respingere i Saraceni, mentre Longobardi e Bizantini si contendevano altre aree garganiche.
Lo studioso Giuseppe Di Perna [2] imputa alla bolla “Iustis Petitionibus” di papa Stefano IX, datata 1053, la prima testimonianza dell'insediamento di Ischitella.
Il feudo d'Ischitella segue un percorso storico particolare, in quanto per tutta l'epoca normanna e sveva fa parte della contea di Caserta per poi finire come sub-feudo dell' “Honor Montis Sanctis Angeli”.

Seguendo un ordine cronologico, al fine di ricostruire la storia del feudo di Ischitella, Pasquale Corsi, già presidente della Società di Storia Patria per la Puglia, prende in somma considerazione la monografia di padre Ciro Cannarozzi [3], dove sono rinvenibili rilevanti testimonianze estratte dall'Archivio di Stato di Napoli, prima che i documenti attinenti fossero distrutti durante la seconda guerra mondiale. Dall'ampia documentazione studiata, Corsi rileva in un atto notarile rogato a Vieste nel 1153, l'esistenza di un Gionata, qualificatosi come “signore di Ischitella” e probabile esponente di un ramo marginale dell'aristocrazia normanna; invece, nell' “Historia” di Huillard-Brebolles Corsi ravvisa, in un privilegio di Federico II del 1225, la presenza di un non meglio precisato Paolo, “dominus” dell'insediamento fortificato di Ischitella, mentre nel “Catalogus baronum”, curato dal Cuozzo, annovera come signora di Ischitella la famosa – perché celebrata nei teatri del Novecento – “Syfridina”, contessa di Caserta [4].
La locandina dell'evento
In epoca angioina l'insediamento di Ischitella passa in successione nel possesso degli Isardo, dei De Cunio, degli Ianvilla, dei Dentice.
All'atto del passaggio, dalla dominazione angioina a quella aragonese, i Dentice – pur rimasti fedeli ai francesi – con Giovanni riescono a riottenere il feudo di Ischitella. Morto Giovanni nel 1480, il feudo per successione finisce nel possesso della figlia Adriana che, sposando Giovanni De' Sangro nel 1497, lega indissolubilmente la terra di Ischitella alla tanto decantata famiglia nobiliare [5].
Sul finire del Cinquecento, il feudo di Ischitella passa nel possesso dei Turbolo, avendolo Berardino nel 1572 acquistato con Varano dal figlio di Adriana, Ferrante di Sangro. I Turbolo pretendono dai cittadini il pagamento di ossequiosi balzelli e di odiose “corvèes” al fine di poter continuare ad esercitare alcuni degli ordinari usi civici. La manifesta usurpazione di diritti esercitati “ab antiquo” dalla popolazione si risolve con un capitolato [6] del 1593, rinvenuto dal ricercatore Giuseppe Laganella, nel quale il barone dovette cedere i diritti pretesi, anche se abbondantemente risarcito dall'Università. Nel 1622 i Turbolo comprano anche il marchesato di Peschici [7].
Dalle “Biografie Ischitellane” di padre Ciro Cannarozzi [8] , la studiosa garganica Teresa Maria Rauzino, coglie la notizia della presa di possesso, nel 1674, delle terre di Ischitella, da parte dei Pinto y Mendoza, i quali le possederanno fino alle leggi di eversione della feudalità del 1806. 
Acquisiamo da Tommaso Nardella che i Pinto, «già possessori, unitamente agli Spinelli, di Rodi […] presero con Emanuele, ministro borbonico, il titolo di principi di Ischitella, titolo che fu poi trasmesso ai Vargas Maciucca, feudatari anche di Carpino… » [9].
Relatori: da sin. Michele Eugenio Di Carlo, Barbara Matera,
Tonino Trombetta, Laganella Giuseppe, Carlo Guerra
La famiglia Pinto, originaria del Portogallo e proveniente dalla Spagna, era sbarcata a Napoli con Don Louise negli anni della grande persecuzione che la Santa Inquisizione spagnola aveva operato nei confronti degli ebrei convertiti al cristianesimo: quei “conversos”, non a torto, sospettati di continuare a praticare riservatamente i riti di antica tradizione giudaica.  Il nipote del capostipite Don Louise, il principe Luigi, figlio di Emanuele, secondo le ricerche di Laganella [10], si era trasferito nel castello di Ischitella nel 1691. La morte prematura nel nobile Luigi consegna il feudo nelle mani del giovanissimo Francesco Emanuele, singolare figura di “dominus” che, seppur molto attivo nelle pretestuose e presuntuose richieste di natura feudale, risulta possibile annoverare nella povera ma qualificata schiera dei mecenati dell'epoca, in quanto restauratore dei castelli di Ischitella e di Peschici, ove fece costruire la Torre del Ponte, posta ancora oggi sopra la via di accesso al centro storico. Secondo la Rauzino, «Francesco Emanuele Pinto fu quindi un vero e proprio esteta. Oltre all'amore per l'arte ed il giardinaggio, è ricordato come raffinato collezionista di presepi […] Le cronache de “La Gazzetta di Napoli” citarono a più riprese, durante il periodo austriaco (1707–1734), la visita dei Viceré ai presepi napoletani ed è singolare apprendere che il più celebre presepe in città era quello di Emanuele Pinto, principe di Ischitella» [11].
Ultimata l'esperienza terrena di Emanuele nel 1767, fu il figlio Pasquale a portare lo scettro di un piccolo mondo feudale ormai al crepuscolo, visto le ormai imminenti leggi eversive della feudalità. Lo fece alla sua maniera, assecondando le propensioni caratteriali prepotenti: quelle di un principe altezzoso postosi su un piedistallo torreggiante e ricoperto d'oro, in un mondo di miseri ed emarginati. La Rauzino ci spiega la manifesta ostilità popolare, degenerata in aperta rivolta, come l'effetto della peculiare ed iniqua prassi di riscossione delle tasse. La scelta del principe di incamerare le tasse “a battaglione”, cioè a piacimento dello stesso, gravando le plebi rurali ed affrancando  sé stesso, comportò finanche le dimissioni del sindaco Visconti [12].

          Congress's top Nazi, Rep. Steve King, retweets Nazis — then gets called out HARD by Dem challenger      Cache   Translate Page      

Iowa Rep. Steve King (IA-04), a Nazi who wraps himself in the American flag to hide his red swastika armband, is once again loudly and proudly quoting white supremacists on Twitter.

x

King on Wednesday retweeted a known racist, Lana Lokteff, and added some of his own home-cooked hate to the mix. This, of course, comes months after his retweeting a neo-Nazi: 

x

King has largely been left to spew his racism unchecked across his district over the last decade, but this election cycle, he’s finally being challenged by an aggressive, hard-working, bright candidate who has been unafraid to call King out for both his hate speech and right-wing policy positions.

Democratic nominee JD Scholten, a former pro ballplayer who was born and raised in Iowa, then became a college baseball star right in Sioux City, has used social media to point out each and every one of King’s pernicious outbursts.

x

If only he could ask him those questions in person. King, a textbook coward, talks a big game but refuses to actually debate Scholten in person:

Via KTIV in Iowa:

“If there’s not a clear division on issues here then you know if nobody’s criticizing the way I vote then they just call names and I don’t think that’s a very good reason to have a debate,” King said.

I interviewed Scholten this summer, and I thought I’d reprint the story below, so you can get to know him and maybe help out his very viable campaign.

verano-cierra-capitulo-off-road-desafio-

El Rally de Marruecos es tradicionalmente el gran simulacro del Dakar. Sin embargo, hasta que gran parte de los candidatos de los nombres propios de la prueba se desplazan al norte de África a principios de octubre, gran parte de la atención en el mundo 'off-road' se centra en el verano sudamericano. La concatenación del Atacama Rally, el Desafío Ruta 40 y al Desafío Inca supone la mejor preparación posible para los 'riders' de la categoría de motos y quads, aunque este año el Desafío Inca contará con la presencia de todo un 'Orly' Terranova en la categoría de coches en busca de conocer mejor el escenario donde se disputa el Dakar 2019.

Bien es cierto que el Desafío Inca con una clara orientación hacia la competencia sobre dos ruedas, pero en la categoría de coches hay algunas inscripciones interesantes. En primer lugar, porque 'Orly' Terranova vuelve a ponerse a los mandos del Mini JCW Rally, vehículo al que no se subía desde el pasado Dakar. Una participación que de alguna forma confirma además la presencia del argentino en el proyecto de X-Raid. Además, cabe destacar la presencia del chileno 'Chaleco' López con un Can-Am Maverick X3 o de Nicolás Fuchs con un Toyota Hilux tras su paso por el proyecto de Borgward.

verano-cierra-capitulo-off-road-desafio-

Con todo, el gran duelo del Desafío Inca, prueba que cuenta con tres etapas y 900 kilómetros contra el crono a disputar entre los días 14, 15 y 16 de septiembre, está en la categoría de motos. No obstante, por Honda compiten Paulo Gonçalves tras su victoria en el Desafío Ruta 40, Kevin Benavides tras superar el fuerte traumatismo craneoencefálico que sufrió en esta prueba e Ignacio Cornejo. La apuesta de la marca japonesa se incrementa con la incorporación de Ricky Brabec. Por su parte, Yamaha contará con tres pilotos de la talla de Adrien Van Beveren, Franco Caimi y Xavier De Soultrait.

Aunque Joaquim Rodrigues y el español Oriol Mena dan un toque de color con las Speedbrain de Hero, al igual que Walter Nosiglia, la gran fuerza antagónica a Honda vuelve a ser KTM. No obstante, la firma austriaca cuenta en esta prueba con Matthias Walkner, Toby Price y Sam Sunderland, los tres últimos ganadores del Dakar en la categoría de motos. Luciano Benavides también compite con el equipo oficial de la marca austriaca en el Desafío Inca, al igual que la española Laia Sanz. Con todo, uno de los grandes protagonistas de la prueba es Pablo Quintanilla con su Husqvarna. Por último y en clave española, compiten Lorenzo Santolino y José Israel Borrell estarán en la prueba.

          Specialişti români şi din străinătate, la o conferinţă despre identitatea culturală a ţărilor care sărbătoresc Centenarul      Cache   Translate Page      
Specialişti români şi din străinătate au participat, miercuri, la Conferinţa Internaţională "Un veac de identitate: teatru şi cultură europeană după 1918" susţinută în cadrul Festivalului Capitalelor Naţiunilor Centenare, la Biblioteca Centrală Universitară "Carol I" din Bucureşti. Evenimentul a avut ca temă centrală identitatea culturală a ţărilor care sărbătoresc Centenarul, în 2018, prezentări fiind susţinute de Tomasz Wisniewski (Polonia), Zuzana Ulicianska şi Milo Jurani (Slovacia), Edite Lescinska-Tisheizere (Letonia), şi Constantin Chiriac, Călin Mocanu, Chris Simion - Mercurian, Ludmila Patlanjoglu, Doina Papp, Ana-Maria Nistor, Cristiana Gavrilă (România). "Am gândit această conferinţă în jurul temei centrale a festivalului, care este identitatea culturală a ţărilor care sărbătoresc în acest an centenarul. Este o temă care ne reflectă pe toţi, pentru că în teatru vedem şi cum se oglindeşte existenţa unei naţiuni, dar vedem şi cum ea poate fi schimbată de gesturile artiştilor. Pentru a păstra o anumită simetrie cu programul festivalului care a început cu un spectacol din Polonia, va continua cu un spectacol remarcabil din Slovacia, şi va culmina cu o producţie lituaniană, am avut la conferinţă o prezentare despre teatrul polonez în zona experimentului, o prezentare despre teatrul Slovaciei şi al Cehoslovaciei, un fel de panoramă istorică a transformărilor care au apărut în structura şi limbajul scenic al teatrului acestei ţări care s-a desprins de Cehoslovacia şi a căpătat o voce autonomă, şi o prezentare legată în modul cel mai direct şi mai explicit de teatrul Ţărilor Baltice care au un univers specific, nu doar pentru că au făcut parte din Uniunea Sovietică, dar pentru că astăzi au generat câteva voci absolut remarcabile", a declarat teatrologul Octavian Saiu, secretar general adjunct al AICT şi preşedinte al Secţiei Române AICT (Teatrologie). Milo Jurani a afirmat că istoria Slovaciei este similară cu cea a României, existând totuşi şi multe aspecte specifice. El a apreciat că teatrul slovac a fost mereu legat de tendinţele noi din teatru. "Deşi cehii şi-au înfiinţat prima scenă în 1881, ca unul dintre punctele de vârf ale activităţii de revigorare naţională, după formarea ţării compuse nu a mai existat un teatru profesionist produs de către slovaci. Crearea Teatrului Naţional Slovac în 1920 nu a reieşit din efortul de a demonstra propria noastră existenţă ca naţiune, ci mai mult ca să completăm registrul de instituţii culturale lipsă şi să confirmăm că avem şi o existenţă proprie culturală în afară celor cehe", a spus Milo Jurani, precizând că una dintre primele probleme pentru teatrul slovac a fost publicul slovac, care în capitala ţării, Bratislava, era în minoritate. Teatrul Naţional Slovac nu a fost fondat din bugetul naţional sau al oraşului, fiind în pericol de insolvenţă în orice moment. Teatrul funcţiona în condiţii de provizorat, neavând propria sa clădire, a mai spus Milo Jurani. "Teatrul trebuia să împartă scenă cu grupuri călătoare din Austria, Germania, Ungaria şi Republica Cehă, nu avea o scenă, nu avea decoruri, costume sau dispozitive tehnice. Următoarea problemă a fost absenţa actorilor slovaci care să-şi părăsească slujbele şi să lucreze ca profesionişti în teatru slovac. (...) Paradoxul noului înfiinţat teatru naţional este demonstrat cel mai bine de faptul că teatrul naţional slovac era slovac doar cu numele", a afirmat reprezentantul Slovaciei. Edite Lescinska-Tisheizere, reprezentanta ţărilor baltice, a spus că, privite din afară, cele trei ţări baltice - Letonia, Lituania şi Estonia - par a fi "un grup de ţări cu o realitate complexă", diferenţele putând fi observate de oricine priveşte puţin mai atent. "Tradiţia teatrală a teatrului lituanian se îndreaptă spre metaforă, spre ritual, spre intuiţie, în timp ce tradiţia din teatrul estonian şi letonian se îndreaptă spre cuvânt, naraţiune, înţelegere intelectuală. Desigur, nu există stiluri pure, nu există tradiţii pure", a apreciat Edite Lescinska-Tisheizere. Ea a afirmat că tradiţia teatrală din Ţările Baltice "este destul de tânără", teatrul din Letonia începând în 1870, în Estonia la începutul secolului XX, în 1906, iar în Lituania teatrul profesionist începând după ce s-a creat statul naţional, în anii 1920. Evenimentul a fost organizat în parteneriat cu Secţia Română (Teatrologie) a Asociaţiei Internaţionale a Criticilor de Teatru (AICT) şi Departamentul de Studii Teatrale al UNATC "I.L. Caragiale.

Further east and south, including towards the Black Sea coast it will be largely dry and sunny. Rainy over western and southern Norway but dry for much of the time over Scandinavia and the Baltic States, with only isolated showers. Lower temperatures sink a little further south into some central parts but the south remains very warm.

TERKINI: Presiden Austria Ajak Para Wanita Memakai Hijab. ALLAHUAKBAR! Semoga Hidayah ALLAH Turun Kepada Mu 
Presiden Austria Alexander Van der Bellen mencadangkan cadangan yang dianggap sangat kontroversi. Wanita Austria tanpa pengecualian dijemput memakai tudung sebagai satu bentuk perpaduan dengan wanita Islam. Walaupun banyak ditentang oleh pelbagai kumpulan, Bellen masih menegaskan cadangannya.

Alexander Van der Bellen, yang menjadi presiden Austria pada 26 Januari 2017, berharap akan ada hari istimewa untuk semua wanita Austria memakai tudung. Cadangan yang beliau sebut bentuk perpaduan dengan wanita Islam telah disampaikan kepada program televisyen ORF. Cadangan ini jelas bertentangan dengan arus politik yang ingin mengharamkan pengenaan hijab di Eropah.

Antara mereka yang berminat untuk menindas larangan tuduhan asing Austria, Sebastian Kurz, yang awal tahun ini berkata beliau mahu melarang pekerja wanita di institusi awam, termasuk guru, memakai tudung.

Sedangkan tentang simbol-simbol agama lain, Kurz berkata, "Memakai salib adalah perkara biasa di Austria dengan penduduk Katolik yang mayoritas. Kemudian memakai salib di kelas dibenarkan. Kerana ia telah menjadi budaya yang sangat berakar di Austria. "

Sementara itu, dalam sebuah perbincangan di parlimen, Presiden Bellen berkata, "Jika kebencian terus berlaku, dan fenomena islamophobia terus merebak, maka nanti akan datang hari kita meminta seluruh wanita Austria mengenakan hijab. Mereka semua tanpa pengecualian. Hal ini untuk menyatakan rasa solidariti kepada para wanita lain yang mengenakannya dengan motivasi keagamaan. "

Bellen berkata, "Semua wanita Austria mesti mengambil bahagian dalam program ini. Kerana semua wanita mesti mendapatkan hak yang sama dalam pakaian. Apa sahaja pakaian. Maka hal ini harus meliputi seluruh wanita, baik Muslimah atau pun bukan Muslimah. "(" Uffpost / alodunia.com)

SAH MAHATHIR LARANG HASMAH BERTUDUNG PATUT ANAK CUCU HIDUP PENUH SO-SIAL ALA KEBARATAN


Terbuka wajah sebenar Mahathir yang suka hidup penuh sosial dan ala kebaratan buktinya sampai hasmah isteri dia pun dia larang bertudung dan anak cucu keluarga hidup dengan gaya kebaratan SO-sial penuh kemewahan serta kaya-raya. 

Bukan itu sahaja anak cucu dia sampai sokong LGBT lesbian gay biseksual transexual... malah membela ANJING!!! BETUL BUKAN DAN TERBUKTI SEMUA INI...

Maka tidak hairan Mahathir boleh berpeluk cium dan rela menjadi "anjing utama" bertuankan DAP... menerima DAPiggy laknatullah rasis chauvanis anti ISLAM dan melayu... walau tahu ISLAM akan tergadai dengan tindakannya itu...

kesian nenek HASMAH... tak apa jahil lurus konon ikut kata suami... walau sebenarnya nenek HASMAH tidak wajib lagi mengikut kata Mahathir... kerana Mahathir menganjurkan perkara yang dimurkai Allah SWT... Pakai sahaja tudung nenek HASMAH... Allah numbor 1... suami nombor 2... bak kata ustaz rockers Azhar Idrus!!!!



MACAM PAS KATA "pendedahan tentang hakikat sebenar (MAKSUDNYA TERBUKTI DENGAN FAKTA SAHIH) seorang pemimpin dibenarkan oleh syarak bagi mengelakkan orang ramai teraniaya."

‘‘Pendedahan itu dilakukan demi kebaikan dan berdasarkan keilmuan supaya pemilihan pemimpin dibuat dengan teliti dan difikirkan secara matang.

‘‘Konsep ini adalah dibenarkan dalam Islam kerana jika tidak didedahkan keburukan dan kelemahan seseorang pemimpin yang bakal dipilih itu, bimbang nanti berlaku kerosakan yang lebih besar,”katanya kepada Utusan Malaysia ketika dihubungi di sini.




SEKARANG DAH TAHU MAHATHIR DAN ANAK CUCU DIA BAGAIMANA?

Adakah kerana ini juga isteri PM dilarang pakai tudung. Cuma larangan itu melalui lidah suaminya?

          Movie Review: The Predator      Cache   Translate Page      

There were a lot of great action films released during the 1980’s, from Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark to Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, Back to the Future to Ghostbusters. There were also a number of iconic sci-fi films that starred the Austrian action star Arnold Schwarzenegger, including The Terminator, Commando and the sly The Running Man. “Ah-nold” became iconic with his enormous muscles and thick accent, and nowhere did his star shine brighter than the immensely entertaining horror actioner Predator. The premise of the 1987 hit was simple: A big, ugly alien creature lands in the jungle and hunts a US military commando team for fun. But the alien has a secret weapon that makes it even tougher; an invisibility cloak. Well, okay, it wasn’t actually cribbed from the not-yet-written Harry Potter books, but its ability to blend in with the terrain was a wicked cool effect. Good enough effects that it was nominated for (but didn’t win) an Academy Award for Best Visual Effects. The surprise hit spawned a number of sequels and at one point the Predator even faced off mano-a-mano with the creature from the Alien movies in the entire forgettable […]

          Wien: Gelungene Demo gegen EU-Gipfel      Cache   Translate Page      



Dagegen gab es am Samstag eine Demonstration mit ca. 200 TeilnehmerInnen. Sie startete um 12 Uhr vor dem Donauzentrum, die Anfangskundgebung musste verlegt werden da es den Besitzern des Donauzentrums nicht passte ihre „konsumfreundigen Kunden mit politischen Themen abzulenken“. Kämpferische antifaschistische AktivistInnen nahmen dabei gemeinsam mit dem Bündnis „Selbstbestimmtes Österreich“ teil. Der Block zeichnete sich aus durch die konsequente Haltung gegen die imperialistische EU und deren ausbeuterische Pläne, die sich gegen die Völker hauptsächlich am Balkan und in Osteuropa stellen. Besonders ein Transparent dass sich durch die Losung „Nieder mit EU und Kapital! Hoch den Internationalismus!“ am klarsten gegen die EU richtete, fiel dabei sehr positiv auf. Rundherum sammelte sich der lebendigste und lauteste Block der Demonstration und zog dadurch auch die meiste Aufmerksamkeit auf sich.
Antifaschistische AktivistInnen stellten sich durch Parolen wie „Giftgas, Krieg und Völkermord, das ist der EU-Export“ und „Nieder mit EU und Kapital, der Kampf um Befreiung ist International“ gegen die voranschreitende Militarisierung der EU und die Zerstörung der Lebensgrundlage von tausenden Menschen. Die gelungene Demonstration gegen den EU-Gipfel zeigte ein weiteres Mal dass die österreichische EU-Ratspräsidentschaft nicht unwidersprochen hingenommen wird, sondern die antifaschistischen und antiimperialistischen Kräfte in Österreich noch mehr dazu anspornt mit ganzer Kraft gegen die EU, für den Internationalismus eintreten!

Stones and Seeds Sown on the Lea – 
The Life and Letters of Lehighton’s Carl F. Strauch

“But as one passes the Cairn, one compulsively
drops his own little stones.”
                                                         ~Carl Strauch
This striking picture of Carl F. Strauch, with his trademark
pipe, was taken by then Lehigh student Lou Stoumen in
1939.  Stoumen would earn two Academy Awards in
documentary film making.  This photo won several
Lehigh Valley area awards.

Born to impoverished German immigrants in Jamestown, Carbon County, Carl F. Strauch may have lacked the pedigree of some in his field, but the depth and breadth of his literary acumen was undeniable.  His life’s work of research and analysis earned him the respect of most everyone who ever met him.
Carl Strauch visits family in Lehighton around 1915.

He published his book, Twenty-Nine Poems in 1932, at the wide-eyed age of twenty-four.  Frequently cited in masters’ theses and doctoral dissertations, he wrote dozens of scholarly articles published by the Emerson Society Quarterly and elsewhere.  

He was a nationally recognized authority on Ralph Waldo Emerson and wrote widely influential pieces on him as well as Whitman, J.D. Salinger, and Melville, especially on Moby Dick

He was the ever popular English professor at Lehigh University for forty years.  He was a stirring and dramatic professor, with a self-professed Socratic bent.  The impetus for his hiring from instructor to professor was initiated by the on-campus murder of English professor C. Wesley Phy.  Strauch subsequently filled Phy’s chair.

Among his many accolades and accomplishments, Strauch was among the few people entrusted with the key to Harvard’s Widener Houghton Library, the first repository of its kind in the nation devoted to the preservation and study of the original manuscripts and rare books from among America’s literary heritage, including Emerson and Thoreau. 
He spent the summer of 1942 at the Fogg Memorial Library in Boston by special permission of the Emerson family to investigate the personal correspondence of Emerson.  This unfettered access and intimate interaction with Emerson’s own papers and letters helped Strauch to be placed among the top three researchers of Emerson in the world.

Perhaps the capstone to his storied career was the posthumous resolution by the Emerson Society of Cambridge, Massachusetts.  The Society called Strauch “One of the few who met Henry David Thoreau’s high criterion, to serve with conscience as well as with body and mind.”

The inside flyleaf of Strauch's 1932 Twenty-Nine Poems
With a biting, and at times a withering wit, the ever apodictic Strauch, knew no limits in his ever upward-spiral toward mastery of the Romantics and Transcendentalists. 

The titles of just a few of Strauch’s essays and critiques themselves are thought-provoking: Kings in the Back Row: Meaning through Structure- A Reading of Salinger’s ‘The Catcher in the Rye’ (1961), The Year of Emerson’s Poetic Maturity: 1834 (Oct 1955), Emerson's New England Capitalist (1956), Emerson’s Unwilling Senator (1966), Romantic Harmony and the Organic Metaphor (handwritten copy), The Problem of Time and the Romantic Mode in Hawthorne, Melville, and Emerson, and Style in the American Renaissance (1970).
Professor Strauch and pipe -
Lehigh, 1940s.












He was transformative.  He transcended himself. 

He was ever and simply Strauch.

Carl F. Strauch was the youngest of eleven children who grew to adulthood.  His father Heinrich was a butcher and immigrated to Tamaqua, Pennsylvania with his parents and his brother John in 1879 when he was twenty-one.  Strauch’s mother, Anna-Margaret Foesch, arrived with her brother Michael in 1887.  Heinrich and Anna-Margaret married on September 24th, 1888 at Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church, on Tamaqua’s “Dutch Hill.”

Their first child, Strauch’s oldest sibling Maria (pronounced Mariah), my dear grandmother ‘Mary,’ was born there on October 3, 1889. 

The Strauchs struggled among the Sharp Mountain area miners.  Frequent strikes put a strain on everyone.  When Heinrich’s father John died in April 1898, the Strauch’s moved to Hacklebernie, a small mining village west of Mauch Chunk.  

The remote village rested between the Mammoth-vein coal quarry operations of Summit Hill and the coal transport hub town of Mauch Chunk.  Hacklebernie nestled along the hillside on the downhill run of the Switchback Railroad.

The portrait was said to be taken ahead of Lena's eventual death from consumption in October 1917.  Carl, the youngest sits between his parents with his favorite sister Margaret behind him.  His mother Anna-Margaret and sister Elizabeth finish out the front row.  Back row: Henry, Leonard, Kate, Louie, Willy, Mary, and Edwin.  Heinrich and Anna-Margaret met in Tamaqua after each had immigrated from Germany.  They lived in Hacklebernie for about two years and then for about twelve years in Lehighton.  After 1911, they moved to downtown Allentown where Heinrich opened his own butcher shop.

The famed Switchback’s eighteen-mile gravity railroad was a leading national tourist attraction of the time.  It was among the many topics discussed between Strauch and Weird Tales author H. P. Lovecraft. 

Carl Ferdinand Strauch was the last child born to Heinrich and Anna Margaret on September 25, 1908 while the family still resided in the Jamestown section of Lehighton.  By then, Heinrich worked in a “slaughter house” most likely Obert’s Packing House on First Street Lehighton.
Strauch's Father: Impassive as ever even
in his later years, Heinrich Strauch
was said to be a brooding, temperamental man.
Even the Strauch women were tall.  Here is Zach and Mary Rabenold (w/
hand over her mouth) along with her sister Kate and Floyd Harrier.  The
man in the center was a family friend from Dutch Hill, Fred Meder.
The girls, from tallest to smallest: Gladys Rabenold, Pauline, Arlene, and
Ruth Harrier.

As a young boy with a small stature, he grew to a giant from his books.
Carl Strauch as a young boy at his sister's
home in Lehighton around 1915.

Strauch remembered the moment he knew books would be his life.  “I stood only four feet in a family of tall, lean giants.”  His immersion into books was the result of a memorable pummeling he received in the neighborhood sand lot. 

Though only reaching to five-foot-nine as an adult, reading made him feel as though he were “seven feet, ten inches tall.” 

The other Strauchs were exceedingly tall.  The older men were over six feet.  Sisters Mary and Margaret were each over five feet eight. 

He was a man of high ideals.  His exacting standards were rooted deeply in the Lutheran faith, yet Strauch trembled not before any god.  To some, Strauch was god.  Former student and later longtime friend of Strauch, Professor Alex Liddie once said, “I was always in awe of him.”







If I was a Carpenter, and you were a Lady…”

Romance entered his life when he met Helen Dery on blind-date, a doubles tennis match in 1935.  She was the daughter of Austrian-born D. G. (Desiderius George) Dery.  Dery came to America in 1887 as a foreman to a New Jersey silk manufacturer.
 
A young and still prospering D. G. Dery
from the 1890s.
By 1919 Dery owned forty-two mills employing around 10,000 workers.  Eight of those mills were in the Lehigh Valley.  He was believed to be one of the the largest silk producers in the world.  He built a lavish Fifth and Pine Street home in Catasauqua with a ballroom, solarium, indoor pool, and a wing to house his art collection.  The 56-room mansion also had a basement taproom with leaded glass foundation windows.  The stained glass scenes depicted Native Americans in various pursuits of big Pennsylvania game animals. 
  
A man of many interests, D. G. had an observatory and a scientific research laboratory installed in 1917 as well as a false-paneled wall to conceal his writing room where he penned articles and novels. 

D. G. wrote at least two novels.  Under the Big Dipper was praised by H. L. Mencken as an “impressive first work of an unknown writer.” Another was entitled Jean Kressley.  Strauch became the perfect-fit son-in-law for Dery.
This Februrary 1924 article claimed Dery owned
"nearly sixty mills."  Dery's fortunes were in full
reversal by the end of 1922.

Strauch once said his father-in-law’s father was part of the landed gentry of Baja, Hungary.  “Not part of the nobility, but one step below it.”  The father took part in the Austrian revolution in 1848 and had to flee from the Russian troops sent in to quash the rebels.  From then on he had to seek refuge in a tiny corner of the empire.  But as fate would have it, it was where he met his wife. 

According to Strauch, D. G. Dery was a man of style and taste that reflected his Austrian-Hungarian upbringing.  “He was a gentleman of the old school.  I could never imagine him in blue-jeans.” 

By the 1920s, with world silk prices in drastic decline, Dery fell on hard times.  In a last dash to save his empire, he resorted to some creative accounting to prop up his holdings.  Soon he faced fraud charges and had to abandon his mansion.  He was forced to move to the smaller house across the street.  But his financial failure didn’t change the man.

He continued his astronomical observations, writings, and speaking engagements.  In his last days he moved into the Bethlehem home of Strauch and Helen, dying there in 1942.  With the property in receivership since the 1920s, the observatory was used by air raid wardens during the war.  Wiring was installed to sirens at the Phoenix Fire House from the mansion.
The disrepair and vandalism of the Dery mansion at Fifth and Pine Streets in Catasauqua in July 1942.  In the 1950s it was converted into luxury apartments, the ballroom and downstairs lounge/bar were available for wedding receptions.  In the 1980s, the Albert Moffa family attempted to restore it to its former grace and lived there for a short time.  However, it has once again fallen into disuse, as the property is far too expensive for a single owner to maintain.  See the After Notes section for some modern photos of the mansion as it appears today.

Dery’s wealth afforded him opportunities in art.  Of mutual interest to him and his wife and in-laws was their shared interests in the arts. D. G. Dery had an extensive collection, of which Strauch referred to as “sentimental” in theme.   Dery had a 17th century reliquary of Christ on the Cross, a Gothic Cross, a painting "Little Mother," and a Carrara marble statue known as the “Blind Girl,” modeled on a character in Bulwer-Lytton’s 19th century novel, “The Last Days of Pompeii.”  
D. G. Dery's art purchases made the news in
February 1912.

Dery’s taste reflected his upbringing in middle class 19th century Vienna.  “If he had put himself in the hands of an art expert, he would have been able to acquire Impressionists for almost nothing,” Strauch was once quoted in a 1984 article of Dery in the Morning Call.

And so began the life of the son of a several-times-over broke German butcher and the daughter of a wealthy, and soon to be broke, silk industry magnate.  Helen majored in art at the Harcum College in Bryn Mawr, was active in the Civic Little Theater, and spent considerable time engaged in extensive travel and study in Europe.

Harcum College yearbook.  It was at about this time
that she was studying the art of Europe.
She met Strauch shortly after her return. 

Both Helen and Strauch presented their work at a spring 1937 Muhlenberg College art show.  She entered pencil portraits and water colors, while he showed surrealistic charcoal and pen and ink masks.
From Allentown Call-Chronicle,
16 July 1933.

Strauch was known in circles from H. P. Lovecraft to H. L. Mencken and from W.H. Auden to Robinson Jeffers.  He considered these men to be his friends.

Mencken, who believed that every community produced a few people with clear superiority who distinguish themselves by their will and personal achievement, had a penchant for seeking out and affiliating himself with like-minded thinkers. Strauch expressed an almost familial bond with Mencken, to whom he described as his “friend, guide, and mentor.”

“A subtle chain of countless rings
The next unto the farthest brings;
The eye reads omens where it goes,
And speaks all languages the rose;
And, striving to be man, the worm
Mounts through all spires of form.”
~Ralph Waldo Emerson from ‘Nature’
From the 1932 Muhlenberg yearbook the five students and their advisers who started the inaugural Phi Sigma Iota national
honor Romance language society.  Centered and bow-tied, the indefatigable Edward Fluck along with an equally smiling Carl F. Strauch to his left.

While a student at Muhlenberg in 1928, he along with five other students started the Lambda chapter of the Phi Sigma Iota, national honor Romance language society.  The fraternity was the first of its kind at Muhlenberg. 

Strauch received his B.A. from Muhlenberg in 1930 and immediately took his first job there as Assistant Librarian.  It was during this time that he developed a friendship with H. P. Lovecraft through their mutual friend, Dr. Harry K. Brobst.  Strauch earned his M.A. from Lehigh in 1934 and joined the Lehigh English department the same year.  On at least one occasion Strauch was welcomed into Lovecraft’s Providence Rhode Island home.
Before Email, Twitter, and Texting - Lovecraft sent
sketches of his new abode to Strauch.  And when Strauch
too moved to his new home in Bethlehem, he returned
sketches of his own to Lovecraft, including a schematic layout.

He attended Penn for graduate work in German, “But when the depression deepened for me I came home and enrolled at Lehigh…I was not following a Tennysonian Gleam.”  For me, “There was no Gleam.”

Though Lehigh didn’t have the prestige of “Swarthmore, Haverford, Amherst, or Williams,” he said his exposure to “high standards and good teaching began in 1933 at Lehigh.”

In 1934 Professor Robert M. Smith offered him a job, of which Strauch commented, “Happenstance was beginning to provide some footing.”  But it was a the tragic murder-suicide by Clow that changed Strauch’s gleam.

“It was a cruel quirk that led me to American Literature.”

This ‘cruel quirk’ took place at Lehigh’s Christmas-Saucon Hall on the morning of June 4th, 1936. 














News of Phy's murder
and Clow's suicide swept
the country, articles
appeared from Santa Cruz
 to Detroit to Altoona.  
This article came from the 
June 6, 1936 edition of
Indiana's
Journal and Courier paper.








Clow was a senior mining engineering major who was failing at least two classes.  One was metal-mining, the other was in Professor Phy’s English class.  On the night before the murder, Clow phoned Phy’s home and warned Phy’s wife with an ominous tone that his grade better be changed by 7:00 pm that night.

The next morning, he first went into the office of the mining professor but he wasn’t there.  So Clow proceeded to the office of Phy. 

A fraternity brother of Clow’s happened to be in Phy’s office taking an exam and witnessed the murder.  He heard them exchange words about re-examination but Phy stated he needed written permission from the dean to proceed. 

Then Clow said “Well” while he pulled the 38 revolver from his pocket.  Phy jumped up and shouted “No, you don’t!” while Clow fired two shots into his chest. 

Despite one of the shots hitting his heart, Phy was able to run down a flight of stairs to the infirmary and died at the feet of campus physician Dr. Raymond C. Bull.

On the floor above, Strauch opened his office door, which faced Phy’s, to find the body of Wesley Clow.  

At first, he thought he was hearing the popping of fireworks.  Realizing it was a full month before Independence Day and sensing something was amiss, he dashed into the hallway to find the stand-out Lehigh wrestler with a gunshot wound to his head. 

After seeing the gun and realizing Clow’s life had ceased by his own hand, Strauch phoned the police.
As their picture appeared in the Call-Chronicle, Allentown's
Morning Call - June 5, 1936.


















It was the first campus murder-suicide in U.S. history.

          Două concerte ale violonistului David Garrett, cu casa închisă, pe 13 şi 14 septembrie, la Sala Palatului      Cache   Translate Page      
Superstarul internaţional David Garrett va susţine, pe 13 şi 14 septembrie, două concerte crossover, de la ora 20,00, la Sala Palatului. Potrivit unui comunicat al organizatorilor, transmis AGERPRES, admiratorii artistului au răspuns prompt evenimentului anunţat, epuizând toate biletele puse în vânzare pentru ambele zile de concert. "Prin urmare, pe 13 şi 14 septembrie, la Sala Palatului, de la ora 20,00, peste 8.000 de spectatori se vor bucura de experienţa show-ului magic, care a cucerit deja publicul din întreaga lume - DAVID GARRETT & HIS BAND - EXPLOSIVE LIVE. Concertele fac parte din turneul mondial cu acelaşi nume şi reprezintă o premieră pentru fanii artistului din ţara noastră", precizează sursa citată. Interpretările electrizante ale unor hituri rock precum "Purple Rain" sau "They Don't Care About Us" sau ale lucrărilor clasice de bază cum ar fi "Simfonia Nr.5" a compozitorului german Ludwig van Beethoven sau "Vara" de Antonio Vivaldi precum şi ale celor mai apreciate compoziţii ale sale, ca "Furious" şi "Explosive", sunt doar câteva dintre melodiile care vor oferi spectatorilor momente de exaltare unice. Concertele de la Sala Palatului vor avea o durată de aproximativ două ore şi jumătate, cu o pauză de 15 minute. În concertele de la Bucureşti, David Garrett va fi acompaniat de trupa sa formată din cinci muzicieni profesionişti, fiecare având un palmares impresionant: Franck van der Heijden - chitară solo - dirijor, producător şi director muzical, care a lucrat cu artişti precum David Guetta, Andrea Bocelli, Withing Temptation, Black Eyed Peas şi chiar Michael Jackson; John Haywood - clape/pian şi co-producător. John este un producător britanic căutat în special pentru compoziţiile create pentru marile evenimente sportive ale BBCITV şi ESPN; Marcus Wolf - chitară ritmică şi vocalist, solista care a studiat chitară clasică la Yale, fiind apreciat atât pentru interpretările sale rock cât şi cele clasice; De asemenea, Garrett va fi pe scenă alături de Jeff Allen - bass, care lucrează cu artişti precum Rosanne Cash, Fice for Fighting si Avril Lavigne; Jeff Lipstein - tobe, co-fondator la New Jersey Percussion Ensemble, care lucrează acum şi ca producător pe Broadway şi organizează turnee şi programe pentru numeroase show-uri, se menţionează în comunicat. Turneul a debutat în luna noiembrie 2016, iar succesul show-ului "EXPLOSIVE LIVE" a bătut toate recordurile concertelor sale anterioare. Deşi a avut o perioadă destul de mare de repaus din cauza problemelor medicale, David Garrett va sărbători revenirea pe scenă în cadrul celor două concerte de la Bucureşti, urmând a-şi continua traseul cu noi reprezentaţii în Bulgaria, Rusia, Ungaria, Italia şi Mexic. Organizatorii precizează că persoanele care deţin bilete cu data de 8 iunie vor avea acces numai la concertul de joi, 13 septembrie, iar persoanele care deţin bilete inscripţionate cu data de 9 iunie vor beneficia de acces la concertul de vineri, 14 septembrie. Admirat de milioane de fani din întreaga lume, David Garret are la activ milioane de bilete vândute. Este deţinătorul a 24 de discuri de aur şi 16 de platină obţinute în Hong Kong, Germania, Mexic, Taiwan, Brazilia, Singapore şi multe altele. Pentru albumul intitulat "EXPLOSIVE", David Garrett a fost distins cu Discul de Aur în Germania şi Austria, la numai câteva săptămâni de la lansarea acestuia pe piaţă.

High temperatures maintained in the south and east, albeit with showers. Cooler to the north with rain or showers Thursday Isolated showers for the north and far south of Spain and the Balearics but staying dry with spells of sunshine across much of Portugal and Spain. Some sunshine but also showers, locally, heavy in Corsica Sardinia and Italy but dry into the Adriatic. Sunshine for Greece with early showers dying out but showers develop over Turkey, especially in central and northern parts with a risk of thunder.

Further east and south, including towards the Black Sea coast it will be largely dry and sunny. Rainy over western and southern Norway but dry for much of the time over Scandinavia and the Baltic States, with only isolated showers. Temperatures across Central and Southern Europe typically in the high 20s to low 30s and locally around 35C in the south. Cooling off further north, high teens to low 20s and cooler still for Norther Scandinavia.

Mixed across Scandinavia and the Baltic States, sunshine and showers but with rain into the west and south of Norway and Sweden later.

          El verano cierra su capítulo 'off-road' en el Desafío Inca      Cache   Translate Page      
verano-cierra-capitulo-off-road-desafio-

El Rally de Marruecos es tradicionalmente el gran simulacro del Dakar. Sin embargo, hasta que gran parte de los candidatos de los nombres propios de la prueba se desplazan al norte de África a principios de octubre, gran parte de la atención en el mundo 'off-road' se centra en el verano sudamericano. La concatenación del Atacama Rally, el Desafío Ruta 40 y al Desafío Inca supone la mejor preparación posible para los 'riders' de la categoría de motos y quads, aunque este año el Desafío Inca contará con la presencia de todo un 'Orly' Terranova en la categoría de coches en busca de conocer mejor el escenario donde se disputa el Dakar 2019.

Bien es cierto que el Desafío Inca con una clara orientación hacia la competencia sobre dos ruedas, pero en la categoría de coches hay algunas inscripciones interesantes. En primer lugar, porque 'Orly' Terranova vuelve a ponerse a los mandos del Mini JCW Rally, vehículo al que no se subía desde el pasado Dakar. Una participación que de alguna forma confirma además la presencia del argentino en el proyecto de X-Raid. Además, cabe destacar la presencia del chileno 'Chaleco' López con un Can-Am Maverick X3 o de Nicolás Fuchs con un Toyota Hilux tras su paso por el proyecto de Borgward.

verano-cierra-capitulo-off-road-desafio-

Con todo, el gran duelo del Desafío Inca, prueba que cuenta con tres etapas y 900 kilómetros contra el crono a disputar entre los días 14, 15 y 16 de septiembre, está en la categoría de motos. No obstante, por Honda compiten Paulo Gonçalves tras su victoria en el Desafío Ruta 40, Kevin Benavides tras superar el fuerte traumatismo craneoencefálico que sufrió en esta prueba e Ignacio Cornejo. La apuesta de la marca japonesa se incrementa con la incorporación de Ricky Brabec. Por su parte, Yamaha contará con tres pilotos de la talla de Adrien Van Beveren, Franco Caimi y Xavier De Soultrait.

Aunque Joaquim Rodrigues y el español Oriol Mena dan un toque de color con las Speedbrain de Hero, al igual que Walter Nosiglia, la gran fuerza antagónica a Honda vuelve a ser KTM. No obstante, la firma austriaca cuenta en esta prueba con Matthias Walkner, Toby Price y Sam Sunderland, los tres últimos ganadores del Dakar en la categoría de motos. Luciano Benavides también compite con el equipo oficial de la marca austriaca en el Desafío Inca, al igual que la española Laia Sanz. Con todo, uno de los grandes protagonistas de la prueba es Pablo Quintanilla con su Husqvarna. Por último y en clave española, compiten Lorenzo Santolino y José Israel Borrell estarán en la prueba.

          Va ramane Romania o pata alba pe harta lumii in ceea ce priveste casatoriile intre persoane de acelasi sex?      Cache   Translate Page      
La aceasta ora, in Europa sunt autorizate casatoriile intre persoane de acelasi sex in Germania, Austria, Belgia, Danemarca, Spania, Estonia, Finlanda, Franta, Irlanda, Islanda, Luxemburg, Malta, Norvegia, Portugalia, Marea Britanie, Suedia. In lume, casatoriile homosexuale sunt autorizate in Statele Unite, Canada, Brazilia, Columbia, Uruguay, Argentina, Africa de Sud, Noua Zeelanda, Australia. La sfarsitul anului trecut, dupa ce parlamentarii australieni au votat in favoarea casatoriilor gay, prim-ministrul tarii, Malcolm Turnbull, a declarat, fericit: "Ce zi! Ce zi mare pentru iubire, pentru egalitate, pentru respect." La nivel inalt, cel dintai prim-ministru care si-a asumat orientarea homosexuala a fost Johanna Siguroardottir (prim-ministru al Islandei in perioada 2009-2013). I-a urmat Elio Di Rupo, premierul belgian din anii 2011-2014, apoi Xavier Bettel, premier al statului Luxemburg din 2013 pana in prezent. Autorizarea casatoriilor intre persoane de acelasi sex nu pune, insa, capat acestei probleme. Toate tarile unde acest tip de casatorii au fost autorizate au trebuit sa-si modifice legislatia referitoare la adoptii, si sa stabileasca reguli in chestiunea, deloc simpla, a felului in care cuplurilor homosexuale li se va ingadui sa procreeze. Duminica, 7 octombrie, se va desfasura in Romania referendumul pentru modificarea Constitutiei, in sensul in care familia sa fie definita, explicit, ca fiind intemeiata pe casatoria dintre un barbat si o femeie. Organizarea referendumului, pentru care Coalitia pentru Familie a strans 3 milioane de semnaturi, a fost votata marti, 11 septembrie, de Senat, in calitate de for decizional. Prin organizarea referendumului, Coalitia pentru Familie urmareste modificarea articolului 48 din Constitutia Romaniei, care ar urma sa sune astfel: "Familia se intemeiaza pe casatoria liber consimtita intre un barbat si o femeie, pe egalitatea acestora si pe dreptul si indatorirea parintilor de a asigura cresterea, educatia si instruirea copiilor." In prezent, in Constitutie, familia este definita ca fiind intemeiata prin "casatoria consimtita intre soti", fara sa faca referire explicita la sexul celor doi. Pentru ca referendumul sa fie valabil, ar trebui ca la vot sa se prezinte cel putin 30% dintre persoanele inscrise pe listele electorale permanente, iar rezultatul referendumului este validat (este necesara o majoritate simpla) dacă cel puţin 25% dintre cei inscrişi pe listele electorale permanente si-au exprimat opţiuni valabil exprimate. 30% poate parea un procent mic, insa nu strica sa ne amintim ca, in 2016, la alegerile parlamentare, prezenta la vot a fost de doar 39%. Chiar daca rezultatul referendumului va fi in favoarea familiei traditionale, nu exista nicio garantie ca articolul vizat din Constitutie va fi modificat, deoarece aceasta nu precizează cine şi in ce termen trebuie să pună in practică o decizie luată de popor la referendum. Asa s-a intamplat si in anul 2009, cand poporul a hotarat, printr-un referendum validat, trecerea la un Parlament unicameral cu cel mult 300 de locuri, dar decizia nu a fost pusa nici pana acum in aplicare.

Il santo nome della vergine Maria, che significa stella del mare, si adatta perfettamente alla vergine Madre. Essa infatti, molto giustamente, è paragonata ad una stella perché come la stella emette la sua luce senza alterarsi minimamente, così la Vergine ha dato alla luce un figlio senza pregiudizio della sua verginità. E come la luce emessa non toglie nulla allo splendore della stella, così il Figlio non toglie nulla all'integrità della Vergine. Lei è dunque quella nobile stella sorta da Giacobbe, posta necessariamente al di sopra di questo mare, grande e profondo splendente per i suoi meriti, luminosa per i suoi esempi. O chiunque tu sia, che nel mare di questo mondo ti senti sballottato tra burrasche e tempeste, anziché appoggiato sulla terra, non allontanare lo sguardo dalla luce di questa stella. Pensa a Maria, invoca Maria, in modo da sperimentare in te stesso quanto giustamente fu detto : « E il nome della vergine era Maria ». Questo dolcissimo nome da molto tempo era onorato con speciale devozione in alcune parti del mondo cristiano. Il sommo pontefice Innocenzo XI, dopo la grande vittoria riportata a Vienna, in Austria, sul crudelissimo sultano dei Turchi, che minacciava di soggiogare i popoli cristiani, a perenne ricordo di un così grande beneficio, stabilì che si celebrasse ogni anno, in tutta la Chiesa, la festa del santissimo nome di Maria.

12 settembre tra storia e devozione il Nome di Maria

La festa del santo nome di Maria fu concessa da Roma, nel 1513, ad una diocesi della Spagna, Cuenca. Soppressa da san Pio V, fu ripristinata da Sisto V e poi estesa nel 1671 al Regno di Napoli e a Milano. Il 12 settembre 1683, avendo Giovanni III Sobieski coi suoi Polacchi vinto i Turchi che assediavano Vienna e minacciavano la cristianità, il Beato Innocenzo XI, in rendimento di grazie, estese la festa alla Chiesa universale e la fissò alla domenica fra l’Ottava della Natività. Il santo Papa Pio X la riportò al 12 settembre.

Oggetto della festa.
Qualche giorno dopo la nascita del Salvatore la Chiesa ha consacrato una festa per onorarne il nome benedetto. Ci insegnava così quanto questo nome contiene per noi di luce, di forza, di soavità, per incoraggiarci ad invocarlo con fiducia nelle nostre necessità (L’anno Liturgico, 183-187). Così dopo la festa della Natività della Santissima Vergine, la Chiesa consacra un giorno ad onorare il santo nome di Maria per insegnarci attraverso la Liturgia e l’insegnamento dei santi, tutto quello che questo nome contiene per noi di ricchezze spirituali, perché, come quello di Gesù, lo abbiamo sulle labbra e nel cuore.
Nome uscito dal cuore di Dio.
Più che il ricordo storico della istituzione della festa, ci interessa il significato del nome benedetto dato alla futura Madre di Dio e nostra.
Il nome presso i Giudei aveva un’importanza grandissima e si soleva imporre con solennità. Sappiamo dalla Scrittura che Dio intervenne qualche volta nella designazione del nome da imporre a qualche suo servo. L’angelo Gabriele previene Zaccaria che suo figlio si chiamerà Giovanni ed egli ancora dice a Giuseppe, spiegandogli l’Incarnazione del Verbo: “Gli porrai nome Gesù”. Si può quindi pensare che Dio in qualche modo sia intervenuto, perché alla Santissima Vergine fosse imposto il nome richiesto dalla sua grandezza e dignità. Gioacchino ed Anna imposero alla loro bambina il nome di Maria che a noi è tanto caro.
“Il tuo nome è un olio sparso”.
I Santi si sono compiaciuti di paragonare il nome di Maria a quello di Gesù. San Bernardo aveva applicato al Signore il testo della Cantica: “Il tuo nome è un olio sparso” (Cantico dei Cantici, 1,3), perché l’olio dà luce, nutrimento e medicina. Anche Riccardo di san Lorenzo dice: “Il nome di Maria è paragonato all’olio, perché, dopo il nome di Gesù, sopra tutti gli altri nomi, rinvigorisce i deboli, intenerisce gli induriti, guarisce i malati, dà luce ai ciechi, dona forza a chi ha perso ogni vigore, lo unge per nuovi combattimenti, spezza la schiavitù del demonio e, come l’olio sorpassa ogni liquore, sorpassa ogni nome” (De Laudibus B. M. V. l. II, c. 2).
Altre interpretazioni.
Oltre sessantasette interpretazioni diverse sono state date al nome di Maria secondo che fu considerato di origine egiziana, siriaca, ebraica o ancora nome semplice o composto. Non vogliamo trattenerci sulle interpretazioni e scegliamo le quattro principali riferite dagli antichi scrittori. “Il nome di Maria, dice sant’Alberto Magno, ha quattro significati: illuminatrice, stella del mare, mare amaro, signora o padrona” (Commento su san Luca, I, 27).
Illuminatrice.
È la Vergine immacolata che l’ombra del peccato non offuscò giammai; è la donna vestita di sole; è “colei la cui vita gloriosa ha illustrato tutte le Chiese” (Liturgia); è infine colei, che ha dato al mondo la vera luce, la luce di vita.
Stella del mare.
La liturgia la saluta così nell’inno, così poetico e popolare, Ave maris stella e ancora nell’Antifona dell’Avvento e del tempo di Natale: Alma Redemptoris Mater. Sappiamo che la stella del mare è la stella polare, che è la stella più brillante, più alta e ultima di quelle che formano l’Orsa Minore, vicinissima al polo fino a sembrare immobile e conservare una posizione quasi invariabile per lunghe notti e per questo fatto è di molta utilità per orientarsi sulla carta del cielo e aiuta il navigante a dirigersi, quando non possiede la bussola.
Così Maria, fra le creature, è la più alta in dignità, la più bella, la più vicina a Dio, invariabile nel suo amore e nella sua purezza, è per noi esempio di tutte le virtù, illumina la nostra vita e ci insegna la via per uscire dalle tenebre e giungere a Dio, che è la vera luce.
Mare amaro.
Maria lo è nel senso che, nella sua materna bontà, rende amari per noi i piaceri della terra, che tentano di ingannarci e di farci dimenticare il vero ed unico bene; lo è ancora nel senso che durante la Passione del Figlio il suo cuore fu trapassato dalla spada del dolore. È mare, perché, come il mare è inesauribile, è inesauribile la bontà e generosità di Maria per tutti i suoi figli. Le gocce d’acqua del mare non possono essere contate se non dalla scienza infinita di Dio e noi possiamo appena sospettare la somma immensa di grazie che Dio ha deposto nell’anima benedetta di Maria, dal momento dell’Immacolato Concepimento alla gloriosa Assunzione in cielo.
Signora o padrona.
Maria è veramente, secondo il titolo datole in Francia, Nostra Signora. Signora vuoi dire Regina, Sovrana. Regina è veramente Maria, perché la più santa di tutte le creature, la Madre di Colui, che è Re per titolo di Creazione, Incarnazione e Redenzione; perché, associata al Redentore in tutti i suoi misteri, gli è gloriosamente unita in cielo in corpo e anima e, eternamente beata, intercede continuamente per noi, applicando alle nostre anime i meriti da lei acquistati davanti a Lui e le grazie delle quali è fatta mediatrice e dispensiera.
Discorso di san Bernardo.
Preghiamo la Santissima Vergine, perché voglia realizzare per noi i diversi significati, che santi e dottori hanno dato al suo nome benedetto, riportando la conclusione della seconda omelia di san Bernardo sul Vangelo Missus est:
“E il nome della Vergine era Maria. Diciamo qualche cosa di questo nome, che significa stella del mare. Si adatta perfettamente alla Madre di Dio, perché come l’astro emette il suo raggio, così la Vergine concepisce suo Figlio e il raggio non diminuisce lo splendore della stella e il Figlio non diminuisce la verginità della Madre. Nobile stella sorta da Giacobbe il cui raggio illumina il mondo, splendente nei cieli, penetra l’abisso, percorre la terra. Riscalda più che i corpi le anime, inaridisce il vizio, feconda la virtù. Sì, Maria è l’astro fulgente e senza uguali che era necessario sul mare immenso, che scintilla di meriti e rischiara coi suoi esempi la nostra vita.
Chiunque tu sia che nel flusso e riflusso del secolo abbia impressione di camminare meno su terra ferma che in mezzo alla tempesta turbinante, non distogliere gli occhi dall’astro splendido, se non vuoi essere inghiottito dall’uragano. Se si desta la burrasca delle tentazioni, se si drizzano gli scogli delle tribolazioni, guarda la stella e invoca Maria. Se sei in balìa dei flutti della superbia o dell’ambizione, della calunnia o della gelosia, guarda la stella e invoca Maria. Se collera, avarizia, attrattive della carne, scuotono la nave dell’anima, volgi gli occhi a Maria. Turbato per l’enormità del delitto, vergognoso di te stesso, tremante all’avvicinarsi del terribile giudizio, senti aprirsi sotto i tuoi passi il gorgo della tristezza o l’abisso della disperazione, pensa a Maria. Nei pericoli, nell’angoscia, nel dubbio, pensa a Maria, invoca Maria.
Sia sempre Maria sulle tue labbra, sia sempre nel tuo cuore e vedi di imitarla per assicurarti il suo aiuto. Seguendola non devierai, pregandola non dispererai, pensando a lei tu non potrai smarrirti. Sostenuto da lei non cadrai, protetto da lei non avrai paura, guidato da lei non sentirai stanchezza: chi da lei è aiutato arriva sicuro alla meta. Sperimenta così in te stesso il bene stabilito in questa parola il nome della Vergine era Maria”.
MESSA
EPISTOLA (Eccli 24,17-2l). – Come vite diedi frutti di soave odore, e i miei fiori dan frutti di gloria e di ricchezza. Io sono la madre del bell’amore e del timore, della scienza e della santa speranza. In me ogni grazia della via e della verità, in me ogni speranza di vita e di virtù. Venite a me, o voi tutti che mi bramate, e saziatevi dei miei frutti; perché il mio spirito è più dolce del miele, e il mio retaggio più del favo di miele. Il ricordo di me durerà nelle generazioni dei secoli. Chi mi mangia avrà ancora fame, e chi mi beve avrà ancora sete. Chi mi ascolta non sarà confuso, e chi lavora per me non peccherà; chi mi illustra avrà la vita eterna.
Tutta la compiacenza del cielo, tutte le speranze della terra si fissano sulla culla in cui Maria dorme, mentre veglia per Dio il suo cuore (Ct 5,2). La Sapienza fa il proprio elogio (Eccli 24,1): per la beata figlia di Anna e di Gioacchino le preferenze del suo amore, manifestate all’origine del mondo sono ormai giustificate e per sempre sarà sua delizia essere con i figli degli uomini (Pr 8,31). La vigna eletta, la vigna del Pacifico è davanti a noi e annunzia con i suoi fiori profumati (Ct 8,11-12) il grappolo divino, il succo del quale, spremuto nel torchio, feconderà tutte le anime, inebrierà terra e cielo.
VANGELO (Lc 1,26-38). – In quel tempo: L’Angelo Gabriele fu mandato da Dio in una città della Galilea detta Nazareth, ad una Vergine sposata ad un uomo della casa di David, di nome Giuseppe, e la Vergine si chiamava Maria. Ed entrato da lei l’Angelo disse: Salute, o piena di grazia: il Signore è teco! Benedetta tu fra le donne! Ed essa turbata a queste parole, pensava che specie di saluto fosse quello. E l’Angelo le disse: Non temere, Maria, perché hai trovato grazia presso Dio; ecco, tu concepirai nel seno e partorirai un figlio, e gli porrai nome Gesù. Questi sarà grande, e sarà chiamato figlio dell’Altissimo; e il Signore Dio gli darà il trono di David suo padre; e regnerà in eterno sulla casa di Giacobbe; e il suo regno non avrà mai fine. Allora Maria disse all’Angelo: Come avverrà questo, se io non conosco uomo? E l’Angelo rispose: Lo Spirito santo scenderà in te e la potenza dell’Altissimo ti adombrerà: per questo il Santo che nascerà da te sarà chiamato figlio di Dio. Ed ecco, Elisabetta, tua parente, ha concepito anche lei un figlio nella sua vecchiaia, ed è già nel sesto mese, lei che era detta sterile; ché niente è impossibile davanti a Dio. E Maria disse: Ecco l’ancella del Signore: si faccia di me secondo la tua parola.
Abbiamo qui la più solenne ambasciata di cui la storia angelica ed umana abbia conservato ricordo, e presenta in Maria ciò che il suo nome significa, la Padrona del mondo. L’interesse più alto che possa toccare l’umanità presente, passata o futura, le gerarchie celesti, Dio stesso è trattato tra l’Altissimo e la Vergine di Nazareth soli, come soli aventi titolo da una parte per proporlo e dall’altra per accettarlo. L’angelo non è che un messaggero e l’uomo è con lui nell’attesa. Maria contratta con il Creatore, in nome dell’uomo e dell’angelo, come in nome proprio, in nome del mondo intero, che rappresenta e che domina con la sua regalità.

La devozione a Maria Bambina

(di Cristina Siccardi) L’8 settembre scorso abbiamo festeggiato la natività di Maria Santissima. Grande momento liturgico per la Chiesa per ricordare il giorno in cui una discendente della linea di Re Davide sarebbe divenuta la Madre del Salvatore. Esiste una devozione bella e tenera per Maria Bambina. Una devozione oggi molto circoscritta, ma un tempo assai sentita sia dal clero che dai fedeli.
Le prime notizie di un culto per la natività di Maria rimandano alla liturgia orientale. L’anno liturgico della Chiesa orientale greca, infatti, non inizia con l’avvento, bensì il 1° settembre, perciò la prima festa importante dell’anno liturgico è proprio quella della nascita della Madonna. La Chiesa di Roma prese dai greci questa festa, che si diffuse poi in tutta la Chiesa d’Occidente. La festa della Natività di Maria venne introdotta da Sergio I, Papa di origine siriana, nel VII secolo.
L’8 settembre, quindi, le chiese d’Oriente e d’Occidente celebrano la nascita della Vergine. La prima fonte che racconta l’evento è il cosiddetto Protovangelo di Giacomo secondo il quale Maria nacque a Gerusalemme nella casa di Gioacchino ed Anna.
Qui nel IV secolo venne edificata la basilica di Sant’Anna e nel giorno della sua dedicazione venne celebrata la natività della Madre di Dio. Come non pensare alle parole di San Paolo? «Del resto, noi sappiamo che tutto concorre al bene di coloro che amano Dio, che sono stati chiamati secondo il suo disegno. Poiché quelli che egli da sempre ha conosciuto li ha anche predestinati ad essere conformi all’immagine del Figlio suo, perché egli sia il primogenito tra molti fratelli; 30 quelli poi che ha predestinati li ha anche chiamati; quelli che ha chiamati li ha anche giustificati; quelli che ha giustificati li ha anche glorificati» (Rm 8, 28-30).
Maria nasce e cresce per essere la Madre del Re dell’Universo ed ecco che di Lei non si festeggia solo la sua ascensione al Cielo, ma anche la sua venuta al mondo.
Nella Chiesa ambrosiana la devozione arrivò nel X secolo, per poi giungere alla dedicazione del Duomo di Milano a Maria nascente, consacrato il 20 ottobre 1572 da san Carlo Borromeo. Il culto crebbe ancora quando, fra il 1720 e il 1730, suor Isabella Chiara Fornari, francescana di Todi, che confezionava Gesù e Maria neonati, donò un simulacro in cera della Madonna in fasce a mons. Alberico Simonetta. Alla morte di quest’ultimo, nel 1739, il manufatto andò alle suore Cappuccine di Santa Maria degli Angeli in Milano.
A causa delle soppressioni degli ordini religiosi, per volere dell’Imperatore Giuseppe II e in seguito di Napoleone, le Cappuccine trasportarono il simulacro al convento delle Agostiniane, poi dalle Canonichesse lateranensi, poi dal parroco don Luigi Bosisio, il quale lo consegnò all’Ospedale Ciceri di Milano nella persona di suor Teresa Bosio, superiora delle Suore della Carità di Lovere (Bergamo), congregazione religiosa fondata nel 1832 da santa Bartolomea Capitanio. Da allora il popolo prese l’uso di chiamare queste monache le «Suore di Maria Bambina», presenti in Milano dal marzo del 1842.
Nel 1876, in seguito al trasferimento della Casa generalizia e del noviziato a Milano delle Suore di Maria Bambina, il simulacro viene custodito in via Santa Sofia. L’effigie mariana ha ormai più di un secolo: il volto in cera appare scolorito e sciupato, si decide allora di sostituirlo, mentre quello originale viene riesposto l’8 settembre di ogni anno all’interno della casa religiosa.
In una delle cronache dell’Istituto religioso si legge: «…erano le ore sette del 9 settembre 1884… La madre si reca nell’infermeria per la visita alle ammalate e, preso il santo simulacro, va di letto in letto porgendolo alle suore ammalate perché lo bacino. Giunge alla postulante Giulia Macario, da più giorni aggravatissima. Questa si sforza di avvicinarsi alla Celeste Bambina, con parole affettuose chiede la guarigione. Subito si sente per tutto il corpo un fremito misterioso. “‘Sono gua­rita!”, esclama. Si alza e cammina». Così, il 9 settembre di ogni anno, si festeggia il «giorno del miracolo».
Il 16 gennaio 1885 si osserva, invece, un fatto inspiegabile e straordinario: l’immagine antica di cera, quella scolorita e ingiallita, è diventata così bella da sembrare “una bambina vera”.
Tutto ciò non fa che incrementare la devozione a Maria Bambina. Il 24 maggio 1887 viene benedetta a Brescia la prima chiesa dedicata dall’Istituto religioso a Maria Bambina. I fedeli crescono in questi anni e miracoli e grazie si moltiplicano. Nel 1904, l’allora superiora generale, suor Angela Ghezzi, chiede ed ottiene dalla Santa Sede il permesso di incoronare il miracoloso simulacro.
La cerimonia si svolge il 31 maggio dello stesso anno e il cardinale Ferrari, assistito da altri vescovi, mette un diadema d’oro alla celeste infante. Durante la Seconda guerra mondiale, quando Milano viene bombardata, si pensa a mettere in sicuro l’effigie, così, nel febbraio del 1943, viene trasportata a Maggianico di Lecco.
Il 15-16 agosto un tragico bombardamento si scatena sulla città di Milano, distruggendo il Santuario di Maria Bambina e parte della casa generalizia. Il 5 ottobre 1951 verrà posta la prima pietra del nuovo Santuario, che sarà consacrato nei giorni 20 e 21 novembre 1953 dal beato Ildefonso Schuster, Arcivescovo della diocesi ambrosiana, e qui la taumaturgica immagine troverà la sua definitiva collocazione.
Il culto a Maria Bambina si è espresso anche attraverso l’iconografia di grandi Maestri d’arte, ai quali vennero commissionati dipinti della natività della Vergine. Pensiamo, per esempio, al dipinto di Pietro Lorenzetti del 1335-1342 (187×182 cm), conservato al Museo dell’Opera del Duomo di Siena.
Si tratta dell’ultima opera documentata dell’artista; oppure alla Nascita della Vergine di Vittore Carpaccio, dipinta fra il 1504 e il 1508 (128×137 cm) e custodita all’Accademia Carrara di Bergamo. E ancora alla tempera su tavola del Maestro dell’Osservanza, realizzata fra il 1430 e il 1435 circa (220×162), presente nel Museo di Palazzo Corboli di Asciano (Siena).
In questo capolavoro Maria è in fasce e ricorda la Maria Bambina realizzata da suor Isabella Chiara Fornari, dal cui prototipo ne sono state create molte altre: le testoline sono in cera o in gesso, coperte da cuffiette di pizzo, e di elegante pizzo sono pure le fasce. Talvolta la piccola statua è accompagnata ad una culla, anch’essa rivestita di fine pizzo.
Riscoprire questo genere di devozioni non è uno stucchevole rimembrare il passato, bensì vivere la ricchezza della fede, fatta anche di segni concreti e trasmessa lungo i secoli da coloro che hanno saputo leggere, interpretare e creare quei simboli celesti. (Cristina Siccardi)

L'invocazione del Nome di Maria mette in fuga i demoni e devasta l'Inferno! - Lo conferma questo esorcismo...



Oggi si ricorda una festa mariana che per i cattolici dovrebbe essere un richiamo all’approfondimento della devozione verso la Madre di Dio.

Non solamente perchè Madre di Dio, ma da questa prerogativa ne scaturiscono molte altre che mente umana non potrà mai comprendere: Ella è capolavoro di Dio

Nel Martyrologium Romanum è scritto: “Il 12 settembre si festeggia il Santissimo Nome della Beata Vergine Maria. In questo giorno viene rievocato l’ineffabile amore della Madre di Dio verso il Figlio Santissimo e viene posta avanti gli occhi dei fedeli la figura della Madre del Redentore per essere piamente invocata”.

l mistero di Maria Vergine è tutto soprannaturale, nessuno può comprendere una minima parte se non viene aiutato dalla Grazia di Dio.

Leggiamo una storia di esorcismo che ha visto la liberazione di due innocenti creature, Teobaldo e Giuseppe Burner, dovuta alla potenza della Grande Signora, la Vergine Maria.

«Uno degli esorcismi più famosi è quello che liberò dal demonio i due fratelli Burner, Teobaldo di 10 anni e Giuseppe di 8. Abitavano a Illfurt, un villaggio dell’Alsazia. Non si contano i fenomeni strani legati a loro.

Coricati sul dorso, si voltavano e rivoltavano per ore, con la velocità di una trottola e senza poi sentire stanchezza. Parlavano molte lingue e dialetti, preannunciavano eventi futuri, annunciavano fatti lontani. Talvolta, il loro corpo si gonfiava in maniera smisurata, per cui diventavano furiosi.

Se qualcuno avvicinava loro un oggetto sacro (un Crocifisso, una medaglietta, una Corona del Rosario), si arrabbiavano da forsennati. In compenso, pronunciando vicino a loro i Nomi di Gesù e di Maria, tremavano come foglie al vento.

Durante un esorcismo fu chiesto loro:


– “Che cosa odiate di più dei Cristiani, voi demoni?”.

– “La devozione alla Grande Signora”, fu la risposta.

– ”E che cosa vi fa più paura, nelle case dei Cristiani?”

– ”L’immagine della Grande Signora”.

– “Contro chi non potete fare nulla di male?”

– ”Contro i devoti della Grande Signora che invocano il suo Nome”.


Il Vescovo di Strasburgo, Mons. Raess, al corrente dei fatti, rimaneva incredulo e lasciò passare cinque anni prima di autorizzare gli esorcismi su queste creature. Il primo fu fatto a Teobaldo. Portato a forza in una Cappella e tenuto fermo da tre uomini, si dimenava come un forsennato. L’esorcista, Padre Souquat, recitò le preghiere prescritte e poi iniziò l’interrogatorio.

– “Ti ordino in Nome di Dio, dimmi chi sei!”.

– ”Che te ne importa, cornacchia?”, fu la risposta poco elegante del diavolo, che aggiunse: ”Lo dirò a chi vorrò!”.

L’esorcismo continuava: ”Ti ordino, satana, esci da questa creatura!”.

– ”Non posso; la mia ora non è ancora giunta”.


Dopo tre ore, l’esorcista, madido di sudore, interruppe e rinviò il seguito dell’esorcismo al giorno dopo. Terminate le preghiere del Rituale, riprese l’interrogatorio:

– “Ti ordino, in Nome della Chiesa Cattolica, in Nome di Dio e nel mio nome di Ministro di Dio: dimmi quanti siete!”.

– ”Cosa te ne importa, ignobile zucchetto!”.

– ”Ritorna all’inferno, dove il tuo posto è sempre pronto…”.

– ”La mia ora non è venuta. Non me ne vado!”.


Il Padre Souquat prese in mano una statuetta della SS. Vergine e ricominciò a ordinare al diavolo:

– “Allontanati, spirito immondo, dalla vista dell’Immacolata! Parti al più presto”.

Il demonio gettò allora un grido e poi gemette:

“Adesso sono costretto a cedere”.

Il fanciullo si contorse come un serpente e poi cadde a terra come morto. Il demonio era fuggito. Senza difficoltà il povero bambino si risvegliò e si guardò attorno. La madre piangeva commossa e accompagnò a casa il figliolo liberato.

Poi fu la volta di Giuseppe. Fissato il giorno, si procedette all’esorcismo.

Durante la Messa il fanciullo gridò: “Io non partirò!”.

Si ripeterono più volte le formule di esorcismo, per circa tre ore. Alla fine l’esorcista esclamò:


“In Nome di Maria Vergine Immacolata, ti ordino di abbandonare questo fanciullo!”.

E il demonio cedette: “Adesso bisogna che io me ne vada…”.

Dopo alcune convulsioni, il piccolo Giuseppe si calmò; per un po’ rimase immobile, poi, come svegliandosi dal sonno, si dimostrò sbalordito di trovarsi in quel luogo e con quelle persone. La commozione e la gioia dei presenti si può ben immaginare.

Si volle che questi fatti straordinari venissero ricordati. A Illfurt, in un giardino di fronte alla casa dei Burner, è stata innalzata sopra una colonna di granito una statua dell’Immacolata in bronzo dorato, alta 10 metri. Alla sua base un’iscrizione recita: “A perpetuo ricordo della liberazione dei due fanciulli indemoniati Teobaldo e Giuseppe Burner, dovuta all’intercessione della Beata Vergine Immacolata, nell’anno del Signore 1869”»
.

Oltre alle Ave Maria che dobbiamo recitare se vogliamo la protezione della Madonna, soprattutto se La consideriamo come vera Madre, possiamo ripetere tantissime volte nella giornata il Santissimo Nome di Maria come ringraziamento, come richiesta di aiuto, come liberazione dalle tentazioni e dalle vessazioni diaboliche, come intercessione per i familiari e per quanti ci chiedono preghiere.

Ripetiamolo moltissime volte nella giornata il Nome di Maria Santissima per tutti noi, in unione di preghiera, con amore e perdono verso chi ci ha fatto del male.

Invocazione per la protezione di Maria Regina degli Angeli e Vincitrice dell’Inferno:

O Sovrana Regina del cielo, o potente Signora degli angeli, o Maria Santissima, Madre di Dio, fin dal principio hai avuto da Dio il potere e la missione di schiacciare la testa di Satana. Ti preghiamo umilmente, manda le tue legioni celesti, affinché sotto il tuo comando e con la tua potenza, perseguitino i demoni e combattano ovunque gli spiriti infernali, rintuzzino la loro temerarietà e li ricaccino nell’abisso.

Sublime Madre di Dio, manda il tuo esercito invincibile contro gli emissari dell’inferno tra gli uomini; distruggi i progetti dei senzadio e umilia tutti coloro che vogliono il male. Ottieni loro la grazia del ravvedimento e della conversione, perché diano gloria alla SS. Trinità e a te. Aiuta ovunque la vittoria della verità e della giustizia.

Potente Patrona, con i tuoi spiriti fiammeggianti, proteggi su tutta la Terra i tuoi santuari e luoghi di grazia. Sorveglia attraverso di loro le chiese e tutti i luoghi sacri, oggetti e persone, soprattutto il tuo divin Figlio nel SS. Sacramento. Impedisci che vengano disonorati, profanati, derubati, distrutti o violati. Impediscilo Signora.

O Madre celeste, Maria Immacolata, proteggi infine anche i nostri averi, le nostre abitazioni, le nostre famiglie, da tutte le insidie dei nemici, visibili ed invisibili. Fa governare in esse i tuoi Santi Angeli e regnare in esse la devozione, la pace ed il gaudio dello Spirito Santo.

S. Michele, santi Angeli e Arcangeli, difendeteci e proteggeteci!


A Maria Santissima:

La Vergine Maria preservi tutti noi e le nostre famiglie da ogni attacco del maligno: fisico, mentale e spirituale; ed interceda presso Suo figlio Gesù il cui Sangue ha redento il mondo e sotto la cui Parola di Vita ogni ginocchio si piega sottomesso in cielo, in terra e sottoterra. Allontani la Vergine Immacolata le insidie delle tenebre la cui falsa forza s’infrange impotente contro il manto Suo benedetto sotto il quale ogni figlio ripara. Amen

A Maria Immacolata:

O Maria Immacolata, rinnovo nelle tue mani, le promesse del mio Battesimo. Rinunzio per sempre a Satana, padre di menzogna, accusatore dei figli di Dio, nemico della nostra gioia. Rinunzio ai suoi inganni, alle sue seduzioni e alle sue opere e mi consegno interamente a Gesù, segno vivo dell’amore di Dio per me. E per essere più fedele a Lui io oggi scelgo Te, o Maria Immacolata, per mia Madre e Signora. A Te, come un figlio, io abbandono e consacro la mia vita, la mia famiglia, la mia parrocchia. O Maria, disponi sempre di me secondo il Tuo Cuore e nell’ultimo giorno accoglimi tra le tue braccia. Presentami a Gesù, dicendo di me : “Questo è mio figlio!”. Allora esulterà l’anima mia inizierà il mio Paradiso e sarà un magnificat a Dio con Te, o Maria, Madre mia Immacolata. Amen.

12 Settembre FESTA DEL SS.MO NOME DI MARIA  


Nella Festa del SS.mo Nome di Maria,onoriamo questo Nome Divino dal quale è iniziata la nostra Salvezza, recitando con tutto il cuore l'Ave Maria... A tal proposito leggiamo ciò che Gesù disse apparendo al B.Alano insieme alla sua S.Madre:

" ... Dolcissima Madre e Sposa, mi è assai gradito che tu sia lodata nell’Angelica Salutazione. Per questo, mi è gradito rivelare al tuo Sposo (il B.Alano) le lodi della tua Dignità, racchiuse in essa.

l'Ave è il Paradiso, nel quale il nuovo Adamo ed Eva,
Cristo e Maria sono stati posti per la rigenerazione degli uomini.(Bernardo).

E’ il Sole che adorna il mondo, dal quale esso è guidato, è illuminato, ed è infiammato dal fuoco della castità. (Anselmo).

E’ la Fonte della vita nella Chiesa, alla quale si lavano i peccatori, si risanano gli infermi, si dissetano gli assetati, si innaffiano gli orti delle scienze. (Agostino).

E’ l’Albero della vita che risuscita i morti, guarisce gli infermi, salva i vivi. (Girolamo).

E’ l’Albero della conoscenza del bene e del male, il cui assaggio mi Insegna a fare il bene e a fuggire il male.(Anselmo).

E’ la Stella del mare, tra i flutti del mondo e le tenebre dei peccati, dalla quale siamo guidati ed Illuminati, affinché accediamo nel Porto. (Bernardo).

E’ la Corona di Gloria, che è composta dalle gemme dei meriti, e
dall’oro della carità, con la quale la Madre mia è Coronata quante volte è Salutata. (Agostino).

E’ la Veste Reale di Maria, con la quale sono coperti i peccatori, e sono ornati i giusti. (Bernardo).

L’Ave è il Tempio di Salomone, nel quale sono offerti a Dio Vittime, Voti, Sacramenti, sono distrutti i peccati, sono respinte le tribolazioni, sono ottenuti gli aiuti dei Santi, sono ascoltate le melodie dei Beati, si incarna il Figlio di Dio. (Agostino).

L’Ave è la Vite di Engaddi, che ha offerto al mondo il balsamo, con cui sono guariti i malati, sono illuminati i ciechi, se ne servono i vivi e sono unti i morti. (Agostino).

E’ la Scala e la Stella di Giacobbe, con la quale si va e si torna al Cielo. (Girolamo).

L’Arca del Testamento, nella quale vi sono le Tavole della Legge della Sapienza di Dio e la Manna della Consolazione.(Bernardo).

E’ l’Arca di Noè, con la quale il mondo è liberato dal diluvio dei peccati ed è protetto dall’inondazione delle sofferenze.
(Anselmo).

L’Ave è la Biblioteca delle scienze divine ed umane.
(Ambrogio).

E’ la Stanza dei Tesori di Dio: da cui i Beni del Cielo, di Cristo, ecc. sono dispensati a noi bisognosi. (Damasceno).

E’ l’Officina del mondo rigenerato. (Agostino).

E’ il Granaio della Misericordia, da cui si nutrono le anime.

L’Ave è il Vaso della Potenza del Padre, della Sapienza del Figlio, della Bontà dello Spirito Santo. (Bernardo).

E’ la Corona di Gloria, che è composta dalle gemme dei meriti, e dall’oro della carità, con la quale la Madre mia è Coronata quante volte è Salutata.

E’ la Veste Reale di Maria, con la quale sono coperti i peccatori, e sono ornati i giusti.

E’ il Giardino alberato dell’amenità con i frutti della grazia e delle virtù.

In esso riposa la Colomba dello Spirito Santo, si nutre il pulcino delle grazie, medita l’usignolo della consolazione spirituale, profumano la fama e la virtù.

E’ la Città costruita con le gemme e con l’oro della Chiesa militante. " ...

Profezie meravigliose! - Il futuro della Chiesa dopo la purificazione del mondo



Presento agli amici di gloria tv. una corposa rassegna di testimonianze profetiche sull’avvento del regno di Maria e sulle sue caratteristiche. Grazie ad esse potremo rinsaldare la fede in questa divina promessa e mostrare, con i fatti, che esiste un plurisecolare carisma profetico suscitato da Dio che garantisce che ciò che ho offerto finora non sono vaneggiamenti della mente né ragioni teologiche di semplice opportunità o convenienza ma vera rivelazione di Dio, infallibile perché reiterata in modo costante, come tra poco vedremo.

Già san Cesario Di Arles (sec. VI), monaco di Lerins e poi vescovo di Arles, con spirito profetico attraversò i secoli e vide, nella luce di Dio, un tempo di unificazione dei popoli nella vera Fede e di risanamento morale, spirituale, culturaledella Chiesa e del mondo, sotto la guida di un capo religioso e un capo politico, santi e restauratori:

«Il Grande Monarca assisterà il Papa nella riforma di tutta la terra. Molti principi e nazioni che stanno vivendo nell’errore e nell’empietà si convertiranno e una mirabile pace regnerà fra gli uomini per molti anni, perché l’ira di Dio sarà stata placata con il loro pentimento, la penitenza e le buone opere. Ci sarà una legge comune, una sola fede, un battesimo, una religione. Tutte le nazioni riconosceranno la Santa Sede di Roma e tributeranno il giusto omaggio al Papa»[1].

Più tardi san Bonaventura da Bagnoregio (sec. XIII) profetizzò un’“èra trionfale” per la cristianità che avrebbe preceduto l’avvento finale dell’Anticristo e che, nonostante tutto, sarebbe stata soltanto una debolissima prefigurazione dell’ultima epoca, quella dell’apoteosi escatologica. In ogni modo si tratterà di un’epoca gloriosa che rinnoverà tutta la terra, ossia sarà

«il tempo del risanamento di tutti coloro che erano caduti [...], il tempo della Chiesa dilatata», durante il quale «avverrà la riparazione del culto divino e la restaurazione della città. Allora si realizzerà la profezia di Ezechiele (Ez 40ss), quando la città [...] terrena, cioè quella militante, sarà conforme a quella trionfante, per quanto è possibile in questa vita.Allora si compirà la costruzione della città, che tornerà ad essere com’era in principio, e vi sarà la pace»[2].

Appena un secolo dopo, anche santa Caterina da Siena profetizzò, dopo un tempo di «tribolazioni e angustie», una purificazione della Chiesa che da «brutta e malvestita» diverrà «bellissima e adorna di gemme preziose e coronata con diademi di tutte le virtù»:

«Dopo tutte queste tribolazioni e angustie, in un modo che non si può comprendere dagli uomini, Dio purificherà la santa Chiesa risvegliando lo spirito degli eletti. Seguirà un rinnovamento così grande nella Chiesa di Dio e un rinnovamento tale di santi pastori, che al solo pensarlo il mio spirito esulta nel Signore. La Sposa, che ora è brutta e malvestita, allora sarà bellissima e adorna di gemme preziose e coronata con diademi di tutte le virtù [...]; anche gli infedeli, attratti dal buon odore di Cristo, ritorneranno all’Ovile cattolico e si convertiranno al vero pastore e vescovo delle anime loro.Ringraziate dunque il Signore che, dopo la tempesta, darà alla Chiesa un grande e bel sereno»[3].

Nel XVII secolo si trova l’importane figura del venerabile Bartolomeo Holzhauser,sacerdote tedesco, mistico e fondatore. È famoso per le sue visioni profetiche, alcune delle quali si sono già realizzate. È noto anche per il suo importante commento all’Apocalisse. In esso si legge, riguardo all’epoca di cui stiamo parlando:

«Prima che cali la tenebrosa notte del regno dell’Anticristo, Dio consolerà ancora una volta la sua Chiesa [...]. Nella sesta età della Chiesa, gli eretici verranno vinti e convertiti, la Chiesa gioirà della più grande consolazione, il dominio turco [islamico] verrà profondamente umiliato, la fede cattolica brillerà per terra e per mare, la disciplina ecclesiastica verrà restaurata e perfezionata [...]. Subito prima degli ultimi tempi, la Chiesa sarà immensa, essa verrà come ricostruita e riconsacrata al suo Sposo Gesù Cristo[...]. Gli uomini vivranno in pace, e questa verrà concessa perché le genti avranno fatto pace con Dio»[4].

«Il sesto periodo inizierà con il potente Monarca e il Pontefice Santo [...], durerà fino alla rivelazione dell’Anticristo. In questo periodo, Dio consolerà la sua Santa Chiesa per le afflizioni e le grandi tribolazioni che ha patito durante il quinto periodo. Tutte le nazioni diverranno cattoliche. Le vocazioni saranno abbondanti come non mai, e tutti gli uomini cercheranno solo il Regno di Dio e la sua giustizia. Gli uomini vivranno in pace e questa verrà concessa perché la gente farà pace con Dio [...].

Per mano di Dio onnipotente, durante il sesto periodo avverrà un così meraviglioso cambiamento che nessuno può umanamente immaginarlo [...]. Dio Onnipotente opererà un meraviglioso cambiamento, qualcosa di apparentemente impossibile, secondo la ragione umana [...]. Le persecuzioni cesseranno e la giustizia regnerà [...]. Tutte le nazioni verranno ad adorare Dio nella vera fede cattolica e romana. Ci saranno molti santi e dottori [della Chiesa] sulla terra. La pace regnerà su tutta la terra perché Dio legherà Satana per un certo numero di anni prima dei giorni del figlio della perdizione [l’Anticristo].

Nessuno potrà distorcere la Parola di Dio; durante il sesto periodo ci sarà un Concilio ecumenico che sarà il più grande di tutti i concili. Con la grazia di Dio, con la potenza del Grande Monarca, con l’autorità del Santo Pontefice e con l’unione di tutti i principi più devoti, l’ateismo e ogni eresia saranno banditi dalla terra»[5].

Tra il XIX e il XX secolo spiccano analoghi vaticini, come quelli della beata Anna Katharina Emmerich, del beato John Herny Newman[6], del servo di Dio Fulton Sheen.

La beata Emmerich[7], in particolare, fu favorita di numerosissime visione profetiche. In lei il carisma profetico spicca, facendola una delle profetesse più importanti e

          Madeleine McCann: Could May and Perhaps rejoin the hunt      Cache   Translate Page      

Madeleine McCann is back in the news. And it’s all abut the money.

The Metro tells us that the “hunt for Maddie McCann has cost £11600000 so far”.  Not quite. That’s what Scotland Yard’s Operation Grange has cost. The Met’s investigation into the vanishing of Madeleine McCann began in 2011. Before that Portuguese police were investigating the case of the British child who went missing on the Algarve in 2007.  That wasn’t without cost. And there was the private investigation funded by well-wishers and run by Madeleine McCann’s parents, Kate and Gerry McCann. The headline figure is wrong. But, then, the story isn’t about the missing child; it’s about us and if British readers can turn her into a talking point. Is she worth it?

The Metro oozes: “Speculation is growing into whether UK police will stop the hunt when the funding ends as no request for more cash has yet been made.” Who is speculating? Hopefully you are. And hopefully tomorrow you’ll tune in for an update on the single thread story spun out of control by a voracious media.

No news on the money means the story has been kickstarted as far afield as New Zealand, where the Herald announces: “Hunt for Madeleine McCann may end within three weeks.” When the word “may” appears in a headline you know your story is in trouble. But she was spotted “in a New Zealand supermarket”, so maybe the story is local to New Zealand after all?

She’s also been spotted in:

Canada,ItalySwedenPortugalSpainMoroccoMajorca,BelgiumBosniaFranceAustraliaBrazil,Wales, MaltaItalyGermanyAustralia, France, IndiaDubaiDorsetUSA and New Zealand (by boat).

In the Daily Record, readers are told: ‘Kate and Gerry McCann have vowed “the search will go on” for their missing girl amid reports police could shelve their hunt.’ Could. Or could not. An unnamed source tells us:

“They will never stop looking for Madeleine or hoping that one day she will be found. More than 11 years on there is still no evidence to suggest that she is dead or has been harmed. If the police search comes to an end, there are other avenues to explore. They have carefully managed the money in Madeleine’s Fund for that eventuality. Whether they choose to employ private investigators or go down another route is something for them to decide.”

To recap: There is no news.

          Marko niega que Mick Schumacher esté en la lista de Toro Rosso      Cache   Translate Page      
marko-niega-mick-schumacher-lista-toro-r

A diferencia de Dan Ticktum, piloto del programa de jóvenes pilotos de Red Bull que sí ha sido evaluado por Helmut Marko como posible candidato a un asiento en Toro Rosso para 2019, Mick Schumacher no entra en los planes del austriaco.

Así lo ha confirmado en declaraciones a Auto Bild en las que afirma que “Mick no está en nuestra lista, no tenemos contrato alguno con él”. Tras seis victorias en las últimas diez carreras disputadas del Campeonato de Europa de Fórmula 3, el hijo del legendario Michael Schumacher ha entrado de lleno en la Silly Season de la Fórmula 1, pues Toro Rosso debe decidir qué pilotos utilizará en 2019 tras el ascenso de Pierre Gasly al primer equipo y la negativa a recuperar a Carlos Sainz, que ha fichado por McLaren.

Dan Ticktum no podrá tener la superlicencia obligatoria para competir en la Fórmula 1 aunque gane el campeonato, pero Mick Schumacher sí tendría los puntos suficientes en caso de proclamarse campeón, por lo que muchos se han apresurado a señalarle como posible candidato. A pesar de todo ello, el alemán no forma parte del programa de jóvenes pilotos de Red Bull y Marko ha negado tajantemente cualquier interés en ello.

          REVOLUŢIA DE LA 1848, 170 DE ANI: Lupta din Dealul Spirii încheie Revoluţia din Ţara Românească      Cache   Translate Page      
Încă de la declanşarea Revoluţiei în Ţara Românească aceasta a stat sub semnul ameninţării armatelor otomane şi ţariste. În acest sens, guvernul revoluţionar din Ţara Românească a desfăşurat o intensă acţiune diplomatică prin trimişii săi acreditaţi pe lângă marile puteri europene, notează lucrările "Revoluţia Română din 1848" (Editura Politică, 1969) şi "Istoria românilor, vol. VII, tom 1, Constituirea României moderne (1821-1878)" (Editura Enciclopedică, Bucureşti, 2003). La Constantinopol a fost trimis Ion Ghica, cu misiunea de a convinge Poarta să accepte schimbările din cele două ţări româneşti. Emisarul român trebuia să obţină în acest sens şi sprijinul diplomaţilor marilor puteri acreditaţi în capitala Imperiului otoman. Ambasadorul Marii Britanii însă, considerând Principatele ca făcând parte integrantă din Imperiu, aprecia că slăbirea legăturilor de suzeranitate urma să ducă, implicit, la întărirea influenţei Rusiei. Dumitru Brătianu fusese trimis la Pesta, iar Al.G. Golescu (Negru) s-a deplasat, succesiv, în Ungaria, Austria şi Franţa, unde a fost acreditat cu începere de la 1/13 august 1848; Ioan Maiorescu a mers la Parlamentul din Frankfurt am Main. Cu toate eforturile depuse, mai ales de Golescu, aceste acţiuni, în ansamblu, pe plan extern n-au putut salva regimul revoluţionar muntean şi, mai ales, să-l apere de intervenţia armată represivă a imperiilor învecinate. În acest context politic, în a doua jumătate a lunii iulie, a avut loc prima intervenţie otomană. La 13/25 iulie a sosit, la Rusciuc, trimisul sultanului, Suleiman-paşa, un iscusit diplomat, însoţit de o armată de 20.000 de ostaşi sub comanda lui Omer-paşa, având ca scop instituirea ordinii regulamentare. La 19/31 iulie a trecut Dunărea la Giurgiu împreună cu o parte a armatei. În caz de împotrivire, Suleiman-paşa atrăgea atenţia că "dacă... mai stăruiţi încă să ţineţi ţara într-această poziţie falsă şi să urmaţi sistemul arbitrar, eu nu mă voi împiedica de a înainta în interiorul ţării cu forţa armată pe care o am la dispoziţie ca cel din urmă mijloc de a executa ordinele majestăţii-sale împărăteşti...", potrivit volumului "Revoluţia Română din 1848" (Editura Politică, 1969). Multele manifestaţii organizate în Bucureşti, prin care oamenii îşi arătau ataşamentul faţă de cauza revoluţiei, dar şi hotărârea lor de a o apăra cu preţul vieţii, l-au determinat pe trimisul Porţii să acceptate să trateze cu revoluţionarii şi în primul rând cu Şt. Golescu, reprezentant al guvernului provizoriu la Giurgiu, a cărui misiune era tocmai aceea de a realiza o apropiere de Suleiman-paşa. La 28 iulie/9 august a avut loc alegerea celei de-a doua Locotenenţe domneşti. Primul act emis a fost o repetare fidelă a proclamaţiei pe care o dăduse prima locotenenţă, astfel noul organ al Revoluţiei, învestit să conducă ca guvern legitim al ţării, a fost recunoscut de Suleiman-paşa în numele sultanului. La propunerea acestuia a fost constituită o delegaţie în frunte cu Nicolae Bălcescu, care să meargă la Constantinopol pentru a supune aprobării sultanului constituţia adoptată la Islaz. Suleiman-paşa credea că suveranul Turciei o va recunoaşte "cu prea neînsemnate schimbăciuini". Mergând pe linia concesiilor, Locotenenţa a modificat cele mai importante articole din constituţie precum cele referitoare la garda naţională, secularizarea averilor mănăstirilor închinate, votul universal, libertatea presei, reformarea domniei ca instituţie etc. Nicolae Bălcescu sublinia în articolul "Drepturile românilor către Înalta Poartă", publicat în coloanele ziarului "Popolul suveran" din 2/14-6/18 august, poziţia după care trebuiau duse tratativele cu sultanul: "Dreptul m.s. sultanului stă numai în tributul hotărât ce suntem datori a-i plăti în fiecare an şi în dreptul de supremaţie, adică dreptul d-a întări pe domnul ales de ţară şi d-a fi privit ca un mai mare ale ţării, nu însă şi d-a porunci în ţară". Delegaţia română nu a găsit la Constantinopol o atmosferă favorabilă desfăşurării tratativelor, plecând dezamăgită. Acest fapt s-a datorat boierimii reacţionare, care, printr-un memoriu trimis sultanului, protesta împotriva lui Suleiman-paşa, căruia i se aducea acuzaţia că ar fi pactizat cu revoluţia. În aceste condiţii, cercurile politice otomane au revocat pe Suleiman-paşa, care a fost înlocuit cu Fuad-efendi, considerat unul dintre cei mai energici comisari turci, un adversar al reformelor. În acest context, ministrul otoman de externe Ali-paşa trimitea la 19/31 august 1848 o notă către ambasada rusă prin care înştiinţa că Suleiman-paşa a fost rechemat şi pedepsit, iar Fuad-efendi a primit instrucţiuni din partea sultanului de a merge cu forţa armată împotriva Revoluţiei din Ţara Românească. La 27 august 1848, Fuad-efendi a sosit la Galaţi, de unde, după câteva zile de carantină, a trecut cu armatele la Giurgiu. Administratorul judeţului Brăila, Dimitrie G. Golescu surprins de inexplicabila încălcare a pământului românesc de către Poarta otomană, a protestat şi condamnat vehement această atitudine. La 1/13 septembrie, o delegaţie a sosit la Giurgiu cu un memoriu din partea Locotenenţei prin care se cerea comisarului turc respectarea constituţiei de la Islaz şi a drepturilor pe care ea le proclamase. Fuad-efendi a spus că nu va face vreo declaraţie până în momentul în care va sosi la Bucureşti. În aceste condiţii, au fost intensificate măsurile de organizare a rezistenţei armate, care însă s-a lovit de slaba dezvoltare economică ce nu permitea dotarea cu mijloace proprii de luptă, dar şi de ezitările unora dintre fruntaşii Revoluţiei. Pentru a arăta tuturor încă o dată ataşamentul românilor faţă de cauza Revoluţiei, la 6/18 septembrie, au fost arse Regulamentul organic şi arhondologia (condică ce cuprindea rangurile boiereşti). Apreciind în mod just pericolul iminent în care se găsea revoluţia şi ţara, Nicolae Bălcescu, aflat încă la Constantinopol, cerea cu insistenţă organizarea unei rezistenţe armate împotriva duşmanului: "Este neapărat ca să începeţi a vă găti ca să arătaţi oarecare semne de împotrivire, oarecare demonstraţii armate". Unităţi militare au fost îndreptate spre tabăra de la Râureni (Câmpul lui Traian), organizată în preajma Oltului, de Gheorghe Magheru. Însă nu au fost luate măsuri de rezistenţă împotriva înaintării armatei otomane dinspre Giurgiu spre Bucureşti. Fuad-efendi a întrerupt marşul spre Bucureşti, aşezându-şi tabăra la Sinteşti. După două zile a schimbat itinerariul trupelor, astfel încât la 12/24 septembrie 1848 şi-a aşezat tabăra în Dealul Cotrocenilor. În acel moment, oştirea otomană s-a aflat în faţa unui zid viu alcătuit din ţărani "în număr de cel puţin 30.000" după aprecierea consulului Colquhoun, aşezaţi fiecare "după sate, fiecare cu preotul său şi cu prapurii bisericilor". Comisarul otoman nu a acţionat imediat. El a trecut la o nouă etapă a operaţiilor abia la 13/25 septembrie, mizând pe faptul că mulţi dintre ţărani, lipsiţi de hrană, se vor retrage. Consulul Colquhoun a constatat prezenţa, în acea zi, a câtorva mii de ţărani precum şi faptul că "întreaga linie a frontului era încă ţinută de preoţii lor şi de purtătorii de prapuri", conform lucrării "Istoria românilor, vol. VII, tom 1, Constituirea României moderne (1821-1878)" (Editura Enciclopedică, Bucureşti, 2003). La 13/25 septembrie, Fuad-efendi a trecut la înlăturarea, prin arestare, a fruntaşilor Revoluţiei, care au refuzat să accepte restabilirea Regulamentului organic. În locul Locotenenţei domneşti a fost numit caimacam Constantin Cantacuzino. Revoluţionarii români în frunte cu Nicolae Bălcescu au protestat vehement împotriva introducerii rânduielilor regulamentare, strigând: "Moarte mai bine decât regulamentul". Marea majoritate a fruntaşilor revoluţionari au fost arestaţi şi surghiuniţi peste graniţele ţării. După arestarea delegaţiei revoluţionare, tabăra otomană de la Cotroceni a fost ridicată şi cei peste 20.000 de turci dispuşi pe trei coloane s-au îndreptat spre capitală. O coloană comandată de Mehmed-paşa a trecut pe la Văcăreşti şi a pătruns prin bariera Podului Beilicului (azi Calea Şerban Vodă). A doua coloană, cu mult mai numeroasă, pusă sub comanda lui Fuad-efendi şi Omer-paşa, a forţat pătrunderea de la Podul de Pământ (azi Calea Plevnei). Lipsiţi de arme şi de conducători, în zadar bărbaţi şi femei, tineri şi bătrâni au încercat să împiedice înaintarea turcilor atunci când aceştia au acţionat cu cavaleria şi au făcut uz de baionete şi puşti. Sute de oameni au fost călcaţi de copitele cailor sau au căzut răpuşi de gloanţe şi baionete. Dacă ar fi fost înarmată, curajoasa rezistenţă de la poalele Cotrocenilor ar fi putut da o ripostă hotărâtă otomanilor. Ea a fost urmată de eroica luptă angajată de garnizoana militară a capitalei cu cea de-a treia coloană otomană, care, în frunte, cu Cherim-paşa, venind pe Calea Pandurilor, se îndrepta spre cazarma din Dealul Spirii, unde urma să-şi aşeze efectivele. Trebuie menţionat faptul că în ciuda ordinului primit în noaptea de 12 spre 13 septembrie din partea lui Ion Brătianu, prefect al Poliţiei Capitalei, de a merge în Dealul Spirii cu armele descărcate, căpitanul Pavel Zăgănescu, aflat la comanda companiei de pompieri, a plecat cu ele pregătite pentru luptă. Pe de altă parte s-a remarcat atitudinea colonelului Radu Golescu care, trecând peste ordinul dat de şeful oştirii, a refuzat să predea cazarma lui Cherim-paşa, declarând: "datoria unui soldat este să moară cu arma în mână şi că mai mulţumit este în acest caz decât să se vadă dezarmat". În lupta din Dealul Spirii, pompierii au pus în derută oştirea otomană, alternând focurile de armă cu lupta la baionetă. Din ordinul lui Cherim-paşa, turcii au recurs la tunuri, care au provocat numeroase victime în rândul ostaşilor români. În această încleştare, la îndemnul "pe tunuri, copii, că ne prăpădesc", pompierii s-au năpustit asupra celor două piese pe care le capturaseră, îndreptându-le împotriva duşmanului. Au căzut zeci de morţi şi răniţi. Însă, lipsa muniţiei şi intervenţia unui escadron de cavalerie otomană au determinat abandonarea de către români a tunurilor, nu înainte de a le fi scos din poziţia de tragere. Retraşi din ordinul colonelului Radu Golescu în scopul aprovizionării cu muniţii, pompierii, cot la cot cu infanteriştii, au reluat cu şi mai multă îndârjire lupta. Văzând hotărârea cu care luptau soldaţii români, otomanii au decis încheierea luptei. În schimbul depunerii armelor, românilor le era asigurată "libera ieşire din cazarmă". În momentul în care 200-300 de ostaşi fără arme au părăsit cazarma, turcii au deschis focul. Au murit şi au fost răniţi numeroşi soldaţi români. În cazarmă mai rămăseseră câţiva care au refuzat depunerea armelor. În cele din urmă, trupele turceşti aflate sub comanda lui Cherim-paşa au pus stăpânire pe cazarmă, iar celelalte două coloane au ocupat oraşul, prădându-l şi săvârşind numeroase abuzuri. A fost introdusă în grabă ordinea regulamentară anunţată de Fuad-efendi printr-o proclamaţie drastică, spunând că "trebuie să piară orice urmă de revoluţie". După două zile, luând drept pretext tragica luptă din 13/25 septembrie 1848 între români şi turci, trupele ţariste, din ordinul comisarului general Duhamel, au trecut Milcovul la 15/27 septembrie sub comanda generalului Luder, pentru a sprijini armata sultanului. Au fost arestaţi şi maltrataţi toţi cei care au luat parte la revoluţie sau care au deţinut funcţii în timpul guvernării revoluţionare.

          Responsabilidad derivada del folleto: competencia judicial      Cache   Translate Page      

            En su sentenciaen el asunto C-304/17, Löber, pronunciada hoy, el TJUE aborda por segunda ocasión la interpretación del artículo 7.2 del Reglamento Bruselas I bis (antiguo art. 5.3) en relación con demandas de responsabilidad civil interpuestas por inversores frente a emisores de bonos fundadas en el carácter supuestamente defectuoso del folleto. No obstante, cabe entender que la nueva sentencia no constituye una gran aportación en relación con las complejas cuestiones que plantean los aspectos de Derecho internacional privado de las reclamaciones de responsabilidad en el ámbito de los mercados financieros. Básicamente, el Tribunal reitera pronunciamientos previos. Por una parte, acerca de la inclusión en la materia delictual, a efectos del artículo 7.2 RBIbis, de las acciones de responsabilidad contra un emisor a causa del folleto (sentencia Kolassa). Por otra parte, acerca de la relevancia para determinar el lugar de manifestación del daño del lugar de establecimiento del banco en el que se encuentra abierta la cuenta del inversor en la que se produce directamente el perjuicio económico (sentencia Kolassa), así como de la insuficiencia a esos efectos del domicilio de la víctima cuando las circunstancias concretas de la situación no contribuyan a la atribución de competencia a los tribunales de ese lugar, en particular cuando el daño consiste exclusivamente en una pérdida económica que se materializa en la cuenta bancaria de la víctima pero es consecuencia directa de un acto ilícito cometido en otro Estado (sentencias Kronhofer y Universal Music International Holding).


Además, las múltiples conexiones del litigio principal con el Estado miembro del foro (Austria) en el asunto Löber, pese a ser el banco emisor demandado una entidad con domicilio en Londres y sucursal en Francfort, llevan al TJUE a no pronunciarse acerca de la eventual relevancia de algunas de esas posibles conexiones adicionales como complemento para atribuir competencia a los tribunales del establecimiento del banco en el que está abierta la cuenta en la que se produce directamente el perjuicio económico, así como a no valorar la diferencia a estos efectos entre la ubicación de la cuenta bancaria desde la que el inversor transfirió el importe invertido y la localización de la cuenta de compensación (distinción a la que el órgano remitente, el Tribunal Supremo austriaco, atribuye relevancia en las preguntas que formula y que en algún momento del litigio principal parece haber sido relevante en relación con la competencia territorial interna –véase apdo. 12 in fine de la sentencia Löber-). Asimismo, a diferencia del planteamiento adoptado por el Abogado General Bobek en sus conclusiones de 8 de mayo de 2018, el TJ no se pronuncia acerca de la concreción del hecho causal, al considerar que el litigio principal versa sobre la determinación del lugar de materialización del daño (apdo. 26 de la sentencia Löber).

Con respecto a la primera de esas cuestiones, son de destacar los apartados 32 y 33 de la sentencia Löber, que resultan indicativos de los elementos que el Tribunal considera relevantes para apreciar que en el caso concreto las circunstancias del litigio “concurren en conjunto a atribuir la competencia a los tribunales austriacos” (apdo. 31). En concreto, menciona ahí que en Austria se ubica el domicilio de la víctima, su cuenta bancaria personal, las cuentas de compensación destinadas a la ejecución de la inversión, así como que la inversora demandante solo tuvo tratos con bancos austriacos, adquirió los certificados en el mercado secundario austriaco, que la información del folleto que le fue facilitada fue la misma que fue notificada a la entidad supervisora austriaca y que fue en Austria donde con base en esa información contrajo la obligación de invertir. Cabe recordar, a este respecto, que en la sentencia Kolassa el Tribunal atribuyó relevancia a la vinculación entre la localización de la cuenta bancaria en la que se materializa directamente el daño y el lugar (o lugares) en los que el emisor decide que se difunda el folleto, al poner de relieve en su apdo. 56 que este elemento hace previsible para el emisor la posibilidad de ser demandado en ese lugar si no cumple sus obligaciones legales relativas al folleto (si bien esa vinculación entre ambos elementos no se recogió en el fallo de la sentencia ni en el resto de su fundamentación). La pertinencia de ese elemento, el lugar o lugares de difusión del folleto por parte del emisor, en relación con la consideración como lugar de materialización del daño del lugar de establecimiento del banco en el que está la cuenta del demandante en el que se produce directamente el daño, vuelve a aparecer destacada en el apartado 35 de la sentencia Löber.

#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Los Angeles - La compañía francesa, Mephisto, ha fichado a Xavier Sanpere, ex responsable en el mercado español del grupo Iberroyer, para emprender una nueva etapa en la Península Ibérica. Sanpere, quien también es dueño de Kickers (entre otras marcas), trabajó hace diez años en un plan de desarrollo para Mephisto en el país. El directivo cuenta además con una trayectoria profesional vinculada a la distribución de calzado en España y Portugal.

Mephisto también ha abierto nuevas oficinas y un showroom en Barcelona para ganar presencia en el comercio multimarca y en la Península Ibérica. Según ha explicado Xavier Sanpere a Modaes.es, por el momento no tiene una cifra concreta de nuevos establecimientos. Actualmente, el grupo francés cuenta con una plantilla de siete representantes comerciales y tres tiendas monomarca en España.

Mephisto, fundada en 1965, continúa pilotada por su fundador, Martin Michaeli. La compañía inició su despegue internacional a través de Alemania, Bélgica, Austria y Suiza, para más adelante expandirse por toda Europa, donde mantiene la producción en su sede histórica de Sarrebourg, Francia. En la actualidad, el 80% de su producción se exporta.

A pesar de que el grupo no hace públicos sus resultados financieros, su fundador se encuentra entre las personas más ricas de Suiza. Hace aproximadamente diez años, Michaeli preparó el relevo generacional colocando al frente de la gestión diaria de su negocio a sus hijos.

La compañía francesa, especializada en calzado confort, produce alrededor de 20.000 pares diarios, cuenta con una plantilla de 2.800 trabajadores y con alrededor de 800 tiendas en todo el mundo. En los últimos años, Estados Unidos, Canadá y China han sido los aceleradores de su negocio en el exterior. Compite directamente con otros gigantes de este segmento, como la italiana Geox, la británica Clarks o la española Callaghan, entre otras.

World War II

World War II was the bloodiest war in human history. Over 50 million human beings died in it. It has been studied massively by scholars among from across the spectrum of humanity. Also, it is a war that made us aware of the sacrifice of heroes who defeated Nazism. Like always, we memorize the victims of the evil Holocaust. World War II existed in many phases like the coming of war, the rise of fascist and authoritarian empires, the war itself, and the aftermath of World War II. World War II is directly related to WWI and the Great Depression. The event of WWI ended with many nations suffering economic recessions. Later, dictatorships would rise up that exploited the suffering of peoples in order for these authoritarian rulers to promote racism, bigotry, xenophobia, and ultimately genocide against innocent human beings. By November 1918, Germany surrendered to the Allied forces in ending World War One. The peace agreement was formed in 1919 with delegates from 27 nations. Most of the decisions in that agreement were established by America, France, and Great Britain. Germany and Russia weren’t there. The Treaty of Versailles was hated by Germany since it forced Germany to pay monumental reparations for its role in WWI. Italy and Japan wanted more from the deal too. Wilson thought that this agreement would end wars worldwide, but it didn’t. The 1920’s saw many countries move into democracy and freedom. Other nations came into the opposite direction in embracing dictatorships and totalitarianism. Totalitarianism means that a single party or one solitary leader controls every economic, social, and cultural aspects of people in one country. Totalitarianism would spread massively in the world by the 20th century. The 1917 Russian Revolution led Stalin to take power. Ironically, Lenin and especially Trotsky were critics of Stalin because of his totalitarian tendencies and his reckless actions. So, Joseph Stalin took power after the Russian civil war. That brutal civil war caused starvation, famine, and the deaths of millions of Russians. Lenin, before he died, moderated some of his economic policies.

By 1924, Stalin took over the Communist Party in Russia. Stalin was cruel, a murderer, and a tyrant. He regularly allowed the murder of his rivals and even fellow Communists who disagreed with him. He grew the industrial power of many farms. His Great Terror program murdered Communists who opposed him in the 1930’s. About one million people were imprisoned. The purge eliminated most of the leading officers of the Red Army plus others. Stalin promoted propaganda to maintain his vicious rule. He also violated religious freedom by destroying churches and suppressing religious expression throughout the Soviet Union. Stalin went so far that even to this day; many people falsely view every Communist and every socialist as equivalent to Stalin. Stalin ironically did more to slander socialism than any reactionary extremist could ever do.  Italian totalitarianism rose after Italy being a victor of WWI. Ironically, Italy was once part of the Allied forces during WWI. Italy didn’t get lands on the Adriatic coast that it wanted. Italy experienced a depression after WWI as well.

Veterans in Italy had trouble to find work. The communist party was growing and the government had trouble in trying to adequately handle economic issues. Later, Benito Mussolini rose up in political power. He was once more liberal and then became a dedicated fascist. By 1919, Mussolini created the Fasci di Combattimento or the Fascist Party. This was a far right wing group that promoted nationalism and wanted to control Italy. He had his followers. They were the Black shirts. These criminals fought communists and socialists in the streets of Italy. Italian King Victor Emmanuel III feared revolution. So, he asked Mussolini to form a new government. Benito was called Il Duce or the leader. Benito controlled the government, the army, etc. after years of conflict. He later ended political parties. He controlled the press. He formed a secret police. He promoted brainwashing involving youth groups and Mussolini opposed strikes. He hated liberalism and socialism. Fascism was spreading like a cancer in the world.

The Further Rise of Fascism

For a time before the rise of Hitler and after World War One, Germany was a democracy. This was the Weimar Republic which was formed in the German town in Weimar.  It suffered struggles because of the economic problems in 1920’s Germany. High inflation and huge economic troubles caused the Weimar Republic to be on the brink of collapse. By the 1930’s, the Great Depression was global and further harmed the Weimar Republic.  Socialist groups were in existence desiring change. Also, antidemocratic far right groups were in existence like the National Socialist German Workers’ Party or the Nazi Party. They threatened the republic. The Nazis were not socialists. They hated socialism, communism, and other beliefs that promoted workers’ rights and class interests. Socialism believes in class struggle and racial equality while the Nazis believed in white supremacy and racism. Adolf Hitler was the leader of the Nazi Party. Hitler was the son of an Austrian civil servant. Hitler also was a decorated World War I soldier and a failed artist. He was near madness and he was completely evil. He joined the small Nazi Party after the war and ruled it later on. He was in prison because his party tried to cause a rebellion in an attempt to overthrow the Weimar Republic. His book that he wrote in prison was entitled, Mein Kampf or My Struggle. It scapegoated Jewish people, socialists, communists, etc. for the economic problems in Germany. He was very anti-Semitic and he hated Jewish people greatly. Anti-Semitism has been in Europe for centuries and Hitler promoted pseudo-scientific theories as a means to proclaim his racist ideologies. Mein Kampf was a national bestseller in Germany. This book wanted Nazis to have global domination and the extermination of Jewish people plainly speaking. The book falsely assumed that black people were inferior, which is a lie. Germany by the 1930’s had unemployment, hunger, homelessness, and economic collapse. The Nazis gained control by the Germany government by January 1933.

By that time, the president of the Weimar Republic appointed Hitler as chancellor of Germany. Hitler was later President and increased his power massively. Hitler made his powers unchecked by the German parliament or the Reichstag. In 1935, the Weimar Republic’s institutions were silenced. Hitler was the sole ruler of Germany. Hitler was a totalitarian like Mussolini and France. Hitler formed a secret police that crushed dissent. The state controlled press the praised him. He promoted Hitler Youth and the League of German Girls to indoctrinate the youth with Nazi ideas. By the late 1930’s, Hitler used rearmament and public works projects. The Germans cheered for him at Nazi rallies. He attacked Jewish people, communists, and socialists. Many Jewish people suffered abuse, discrimination, and murder by the Nazis and their supporters as well. Japan once saw democracy grow in the 1920’s. There were trade unions, men voting, and other parties formed. This ended with the Great Depression. By the 1930’s, Japan moved into a more militaristic direction. Japan had a constitutional monarchy ruled by one emperor. Japan used its military to attack Manchuria in 1931. They moved a more new regime called Manchukuo in Manchuria. They gained more natural resources in Asia by invasion. They also invaded China to steal Chinese railroads and coastal resources. They also conquered Nanjing where Japanese soldiers murder more than 200,000 Chinese people and many women were raped (called the Rape of Nanjing). Militarism spread in Italy, Germany, and Japan.

The League of Nations was very weak by America refusing to join it. The League of Nations had no army, no navy, and no power to enforce its proclamations. Hitler and Mussolini harmed societies. Germany’s economy grew from 1933 to 1936. He or Hitler wanted all Germanic peoples to be united in one Reich or state. He wanted to have Lebensraum or living space for Germanic peoples. He sent German troops to the Rhineland by 1936 and the League of Nations didn’t respond to stop him. Mussolini invaded Ethiopia in 1935, which was an independent African nation. Haile Selassie or the leader of Ethiopia wanted the League of Nations to respond and help them, but the League of Nations refused to do so. Ethiopia was conquered until years later when Ethiopia defeated the Italian invaders. Fascists fought in the Spanish Civil War. It lasted from 1936 to 1939. It was about the fascist nationalists fighting against Spain’s democratic Republican government. Hitler and Mussolini aided Franco and the Spanish fascists during the civil war. General Francisco Franco tested his military technology in the war. The Soviet Union aided the Republican forces. France, Britain, and the United States remained on the sidelines mostly (except for some Americans and other Westerners volunteering to join the Republican cause). The Fascists won the Spanish civil war unfortunately.

Isolationism vs. Interventionism

By the 1930’s, France and Britain wanted appeasement in dealing with the aggressive, fascist nations of Nazi Germany, etc. This wanted to make concessions to prevent enemy nations from going forward with all-out war and maintain peace. This policy didn’t work as the fascist leaders would be bolder to try to conquer more lands unjustly. Some appeasers viewed World War I as so bloody that they wanted peace at any cost. Some believed that the Soviet Union was more of a threat than Germany or Italy. Franklin Delano Roosevelt wanted a Good Neighbor policy with Latin America. He improved relations with the Soviet Union. Back then, at first, he didn’t take a forceful line against Germany aggression. He wanted to focus on its American problems and later embraced isolationism. FDR would later reject isolationism. Hitler in the spring of 1938 conquered Austria. He formed the Anschluss in Austria. He conquered Sudenteland in the fall of 1938. That region of western Czechoslovakia was many ethnic Germans living there. Britain and France appeased Nazi Germany during the Munich Conference. Hitler and British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain plus French premier Edouard Daladier allowed Hitler to rule Sudetenland in order to try to get peace. Chamberlain came to London and praised the Munich Pact. He was wrong as war would occur 11 months later.

President Franklin Delano Roosevelt later condemned aggression in Asia and he did little to stop it. There was the 1937 attack on China. It shocked Americans and the rape of Nanjing would come in December of 1937. Japan attacked with no declaration of war. China experienced terrorism by Japan forces among its cities like in Shanghai and Nanjing. 3 American sailors were killed and the United States gunboat Panay on the Chang River was sank. FDR criticized Japan’s aggression in a speech in Chicago on October 5, 1937. He condemned Japanese attacks on civilian populations. He also said that no part of the war is truly isolated form the world. He wanted an alliance of nations to promote peace against aggression. He was criticized by many for his interventionist stance. Japan continued to invade more territories. France and Britain couldn’t stop Hitler’s aggression. Hitler conquered all of Czechoslovakia into German hands. This alarmed France and Britain. They started to prepare plans for a defensive measure against the Nazis. France and Britain said that if Nazi invaded other territories, then war would transpire. Britain and France signed an agreement with Poland aiding them if Hitler invaded Poland. Hitler wanted the Soviet Union to be a buffer against Poland. So, he or Adolf Hitler would not fight 2 fronts in a war.

That is why Germany signed the Nazi-Soviet Nonaggression Pact with the Soviets on August 23, 1939. They promised to not attack each other. They also agreed to invade and divide up Poland. This aggressive agreement shocked the world. It was one of the biggest mistakes of the Soviet Union. During the early mornings of September 1, 1939, Nazi Germany invaded Poland with a blitzkrieg strike. Fast moving tanks and soldiers conquered Poland. The Soviet Union invaded Poland from the east on September 17, 1939. France and Britain did nothing to help Poland. Poland was soon defeated by the end of September. World War II started with the Nazi invasion of Poland. The Axis Powers were Germany, Italy, Japan, and other nations. The Allies included Britain, France, and later other countries like America, China, plus the Soviet Union. During the spring of 1940, Germany invaded Denmark and Norway on April 9, 1940. By May 10, he used his blitzkrieg forces into the Netherlands, Belgium, and Luxembourg. His army was fast and powerful. Laster, he fought France. There was the Maginot Line and other areas. In May 1940, Germany moved into the Ardennes and British forces escaped form Dunkirk. Soon, France was defeated and conquered. It took only 35 days for Hitler to rule over France. The Nazis marched in Paris.

Winston Churchill gave speeches to Parliament and other places in England to fight the Nazi threat. He said on June 4, 1940 that he would fight everywhere against the Nazis and he won’t surrender. He rallied the British nation. They prepared for battles. Soon, Hitler invaded Britain via Operation Sea Lion. He or Hitler wanted the German air force of the Luftwaffe to bomb the British Royal Air Force. He wanted to control the British skies. The air battle continued between England and the Nazis. The Nazis attacked on July of 1940 starting the Battle of Britain. Almost 1,000 British planes were lost. More than 1,700 Nazi planes were lost. The Blitz included the Nazis destroying civilian infrastructure in Britain. Churches, homes, factories, schools, and other areas were bombed. Many British people lived in subways to escape the bombing campaign from Germany. Later, Hitler halted invasion attempts and the British were victorious. While this was going on, Winston Churchill wanted America to ally with him in fighting the Nazis. Many viewed this war as a fight for democracy globally. Nazis threatened human freedoms worldwide and that’s true.

Back then, America was mostly isolationist. President Roosevelt agreed with Churchill that the Nazi threat was real, but FDR knew that most Americans were opposed to U.S. intervention. The Great Depression was just ending. Many Americans wanted to focus on domestic affairs. The isolationist movement grew after the Nye Committee (named after Congressman Gerald Nye of South Dakota) saying that corporate interests benefited from World War One. Congress even passed the Neutrality Acts of 1935, 1936, and 1937. These laws used restrictions on American trade during the time of war. One example of this policy was Americans were forbidden to sail on ships owned by belligerents or nations at war. Americans were banned from making loans to belligerents or selling them arms and munitions. These laws didn’t make a distinction between aggressors like Nazis and Italy and victims like Poland or Great Britain and France. The interventionists wanted the support of America to giave great aid to the Allied cause.

Image result for the neutrality acts

Roosevelt was angry at the limitations of the Neutrality Acts. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt was anti-Nazi and promoted democracies. Congress passed the Neutrality Act of 1939. This act was different in that it makes it legal to have a cash and carry policy. This allowed belligerent nations to buy goods and arms in the United States if they paid cash and carried the merchandise on their own ships. The British navy controlled the seas. This policy allowed America to aid the British economically. Some Americans didn’t like Roosevelt’s pro-Allies stance. These people wanted isolation and neutrality even in the midst of millions of Jewish people dying by the Holocaust. Isolationists and interventionists debated each other greatly in 1940 and 1941. This came when Britain was alone in Europe fighting the Nazis. Some interventionists wanted to aid the British as a way to keep America out of the war militarily. One group promoting this view was the Committee to Defend America by Aiding the Allies. Isolationists wanted neutrality. They wanted no funding of Allies since they believed that it would ultimately cause war against the Axis. Many of the isolationists were indeed racists and pro-Nazis.  The America First Committee was an isolationist group. Charles Lindbergh was one leading isolationist who condemned the Soviet Union and Japan while not massively criticizing the Axis Powers back then (until Pearl Harbor). The American First Committee had rallies nationwide. American journalist Edward R. Murrow reported news during the Battle of Britain. He exposed the fact that the Nazis were bombing civilian targets. This motivated interventionists to continue in the fight to defend democracy. Germany, Italy, and Japan had the Tripartite Pact in September of 1940. This agreement wanted each nation to defend each other in case they were attacked by another power.

Congress passed the Selective Service Act. This was a peacetime draft. It gave military training of 1.3 million troops and 800,000 reserve troops every year. Also, President Roosevelt aided Great Britain more. He gave 50 WWI era battleships in eight British defense bases. He did this without the consent of Congress as it was an emergency in his mind. FDR soon was elected for an unprecedented third time against Republican nominee Wendell L. Willkie of Indiana. Willkie accused FDR of not handling economic and foreign policy affairs the right way. Yet, most Americans wanted FDR to maintain the course of American society. Once re-elected, President Franklin Roosevelt supported Britain even more. FDR was short on funds from the cash and carry goods program. FDR addressed Congress on January 6, 1941.  He spoke of the four freedoms. They were the freedom of speech, the freedom of worship, the freedom from want, and the freedom from fear. These freedoms were threatened by the Nazi and Japanese militarism. Roosevelt wanted America to aid the Allies in order to stop the Nazi empire. Roosevelt wanted to promote America as the “great arsenal for democracy.” Britain wanted help and America gave the UK help. In March of 1941, Congress passed the Lend-Lease Act. It was numbered 1776 after the big debate among isolationists and interventionists. The act gave Roosevelt the power to send and lease plus lend resources to allies in defense of America. By 1945, America sent more than $40 billion of Lend-Lease aid to the Allies plus to the Soviet Union. It was an act of economic war against the Nazis and the rest of the Axis Powers.

The historic Atlantic Charter promoted an alliance among Great Britain and America. It occurred on August of 1941. This was when President Roosevelt and Prime Minister Winston Churchill met secretly on a warship of the coast of Newfoundland. They walked about the British response in the world. They also wanted to talk about the future after the war ended and after Hitler was defeated. Both of them signed the Atlantic Charter, which promoted national self-determination and an international system of general security. Roosevelt was more apt to oppose colonialism while Churchill is well known to have supported colonialism including the concept of the British Empire. Hitler knew of these things. He knew America was funding the Allies. So, he responded. American ships escorted arms shipments to Iceland and the British picked them up and sent them to England. By the fall of 1941, Hitler used German U-boats of submarines to attack American ships. Many U-boats shot at the USS Greer, hit the USS Kearny, and the USS Rueben James. Over 100 sailors were killed by these acts. Many Americans were angered. This was close to America declaring war on Germany. America by this time was a neutral nation, but that would change. FDR ordered the Navy to attack German U-boats on sights. By June 1941, the Nazis declared war on the Soviet Union via Operation Barbarossa. This was his greatest mistake since the Soviet Union would mobilize its factories and army to help end the Nazis. The Soviets used millions of its people to organize factories, soldiers, and other resources to respond plus defeat Nazi Germany. By November of 1941, America would be closer to have involvement in World War Two militarily.

America Enters the War

America came into World War II after Japan’s attack in America. It started by December of 1941. Japan and America were once allies during WWI. Later, things have changed. Japan expanded its militarist empire throughout Asia and the Pacific region. America had forces in Guam and the Philippines. Japan considered this reality a threat to its acquiring of natural resources. Yet, Japan still traded with America. The U.S. supplied Japan with oil and other resources too. Japan took over China and Vietnam (which was called Indo-China back then). President Roosevelt wanted this expansion to end. July 1940 was the time when FDR placed an embargo on naval and aviation supplies to Japan. These supplies included oil, iron ore, fuel, steel, and rubber. FDR made a bigger embargo after the Tripartite Pact was made in 1940. Japanese expansion slowed down. Yet, Japan continued to conquer more territories. General Hideki Tojo was the new Japanese prime minister in 1941. He was called the razor for his sharp mind. He wanted military expansion and keep America neutral. In the summer of 1941, both America and Japan were in serious negotiations in order to end disagreements. Japan wanted to expand while American leaders were opposed to this goal. Japan’s final demands were rejected by U.S. Secretary of State Cordell Hull in 1941.Tojo tried a final peace initiative, but failed. Tojo decided on fighting America via war. During the beginning of December, Japan would strike America in Hawaii. Japanese diplomats were in D.C. while Japanese ships headed for Pearl Harbor. Pearl Harbor had a major amount of U.S. naval ships. Tojo sent Vice Admiral Chuichi Nagumo to command the attack. He had 6 aircraft carriers, 360 airplanes, and many battleships plus cruisers. There were submarines there too. Japanese wanted a surprise attack in order to end American military forces in the Pacific. Japan wanted to expand into new territories to gain resources.


The Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor was brutal. American forces were surprised by the attacks. The USS Arizona was destroyed. The USS Arizona was blown up. Nearly 2,500 people were killed. 8 battleships were severely damaged, 3 destroyed left unusable, and 3 light cruisers were damaged. 160 aircraft were destroyed and 128 more were damaged. The U.S. battle fleet was out of commission for almost six months. The Japanese had access to get new raw materials in new territories. Much of the  U.S. aircraft carriers were out to sea in that time. The USS Arizona, the USS Oklahoma, and the USS Utah suffered harsh damage. Nagumo canceled a third wave of bombers. He came back home since he didn’t wanted an American counterstrike. The American Pacific Fleet would recover. As news about Pearl Harbor spread in America, FDR addressed Congress. He promoted unity to fight the Japanese. Nothing was the same. Most Americans soon desired to declare war. The Soviet Union now was in the Allied cause. Political infighting ended between isolationists and interventionists. The only people who opposed involvement in the war were pacifists, isolationists, and others. President Roosevelt gave a speech to promote the declaration of war. Congress supported the declaration of war in the House 388 to 1 and in the Senate unanimously. Later, Japan, Germany, and Italy declared war on America. Democrats and Republicans were in the war effort. Patriotism increased. Many Americans mobilized for the war effort. Some were in the military, some joined other organizations, and some funded the Red Cross. 16 million Americans joined the military in the war. The U.S. Army grew from about 1.4 million to 3 million people. The Navy grew from under 300,000 to more than 600,000 people.

Americans of every ethnicity and sex were involved in World War II. 300,000 Mexican Americans and 25,000 Native Americans were in integrated units. Nearly one million African Americans joined the military in mostly segregated units. They first worked in limited roles at first. Later, African Americans saw more active combat and served in the white combat units in some cases. This came after causalities mounted. Over 350,000 women served in World War II in a diversity of roles. In 1941, Congresswoman Edith Nourse Rogers introduced a bill formed the Women’s Army Auxiliary Corps which would change into the WAC or the Women’s Army Corps in 1943. The WAC allowed women clerical workers, truck drivers, instructors, and lab technicians to work for the United States Army. Over 150,000 women served in the WAC. 15,000 women served overseas. 600 women received medals for their service. The Army Nurse Corps had 57,000 nurses. These nurses were in danger from the Axis in Europe and in the Pacific. Thousands of more women were in the Navy and Coast Guard auxiliaries. Industry would mobilize too. Roosevelt inspired American production of industry to be used in the war. The War Production Board or the WPB oversaw the conversion of peacetime industry into a war industry. Many agencies made materials to promote resources for the war. Civilian goods were regulated. Organized labor negotiated with the government too. All of these things were controlled with the help of the OWM or the Office of War Mobilization. Defense spending massively ended the Great Depression.

That spending was government money which proves the notion that government intervention can end recessions and depressions. A job came for every worker who wanted one. Production for military supplies increased. Henry Ford produced for America. American made production much more than Axis nations combined by 1944. American production was key in causing the Allied victory of World War II.

After Pearl Harbor, Japan moved as quickly as possible in the Pacific in order for them to control areas before a major American response. In December 1941, Douglas MacArthur struggled to secure the Philippines. The Philippines had little support. Japan destroyed half of the Army’s fighter planes in the region. Japan quickly controlled Guam. They also took Hong Kong and Wake Island. Japan attacked the Philippines by December 22, 1941. MacArthur used his forces to try to stop the Japanese. Yet, the Japanese had bigger numbers, so MacArthur and his forces were forced to retreat. The U.S. left Manila to the Bataan peninsula. They dug in for a siege on Corregidor. Americans suffered heavily and many had low rations. MacArthur left into Australia via evacuation by orders from the U.S. government. Other Americans remained behind. They held out until May of 1942. This was when 75,000 troops surrendered. They were taken as POWs to march 55 miles to the Bataan peninsula to go into a railway. They were forced to march 8 more miles. More than 7,000 Americans and Filipino troops died during the Bataan Death March. Japanese forces continued to get more lands in the Pacific. They got oil and rubber plies in the Southeast Asian region. By the summer of 1942, Japan thought about dominating the Indian Ocean, Australia, New Zealand, and the central Pacific. America had to act quickly to prevent that from happening.

FDR led a response against Japan. This was the Doolittle Raid. It involved a nighttime bombing raid from the USS Hornet aircraft carrier. It was led by Colonel James Doolittle. Doolittle led the raid of 16 B-25 bombings to attack Tokyo. The raid killed 50 Japanese people and damaged 100 buildings. The pilot flew to China where they crash landed. The Doolittle Raid was a small military gain, but it gave Americans more confidence. The Battle of Coral Sea was used to fight Japan. In May of 1942, Japanese moved to take Port Moresby in New Guinea. The Japanese wanted to attack Australia later on. They also wanted to protect its military bases at Rabual, New Guinea. America sent 2 aircraft carriers. They were the USS Lexington and the USS Yorktown along with support vessels to attack the Japanese forces. On May 7-8, 1948, American and Japanese forces fought each other via aircraft. The battle was a draw, but it further gave Americans forces confidence to continue. Aircraft carriers and planes were key weapons in WWII. Japan no longer attacked New Guinea in the future. 1942 saw the Allied response against the Axis Powers to exist in a higher level.

The Allies Winning

June 1942 was a time of the Allied forces were still responding and fighting the Axis Powers. The Axis Powers never had a long term strategy in their goals. Hitler wanted to rule Europe and murder Jewish people, Communists, socialists, plus non-white Germanic peoples. Mussolini wanted an empire from Italy to East Africa. Tojo wanted to dominate Western Pacific areas and Asia. The Allied forces had a more unified purpose. Roosevelt, Churchill, and Stalin wanted Nazi Germany defeated. America created tons of materials for the Allies, but the Allies fought Nazi U-Boats in order for the Allies to carry those supplies to the UK, the Soviet Union, and other Allied forces. German U-Boats sank more than 3,500 merchant ships and murdered thousands of Allied seamen in the Atlantic and Caribbean waters. By mid-1943, the Allied forces used radar to track and destroy German U-Boats. Long range bombers defeated many U-boats too. Germany attacked Russia in 1941. The Nazis send one army north to Leningrad and a second one east toward Moscow. They also had a third group going south to Stalingrad. The Nazis were deep in the Soviet Union. Millions of Soviet soldiers and civilians were killed. The Soviet resistance and the Russian winter ended the Nazi advance. Hitler also wanted to capture Stalingrad in order to get the rich oil fields of the Caucasus Mountains. The battle of Stalingrad was long and harsh. German troops had house by house fights. The Soviet troops counterattacked. The Nazis were trapped. Hitler resisted defeat at first. The remaining German troops surrendered on January 31, 1943. The battle of Stalingrad was a turning point in the war. It was the end of the Hitler advance in the east. Hitler never could dominate Europe. Nazi armies were in retreat and came back toward Germany. The Soviet Union was now in the offensive going westward into Berlin.

There was World War II battles in North Africa too. In the deserts and mountains of North Africa, Germany and Britain fought each other for territories. The British were fighting the Germans and the Italians since 1940. The Allied forces wanted North Africa. Stalin wanted America and Britain to fight the Nazis in France in order to cause a second European front (plus give Stalin more freedom to fight). FDR and Churchill wanted to go into North Africa at first instead. Both thought that they needed more time to go into France from the English Channel. FDR and Churchill wanted to get North Africa, so they could go into Italy. By October of 1942, the British won a major victory at El Alamein in Egypt. The British moved westward. Allied troops landed in Morocco and Algeria and started to move east toward key German position. The Allied invasion of North Africa was started by General Dwight Eisenhower, who was an American. German general Erwin Rommel on February of 1943 led his Afrika Korps against the Americans at the Kasserine Pass in Tunisia. He was called the Desert Fox. Rommel broke through the American lines. He wanted to go to the Allied supply base at Tebessa in Algeria. American soldiers stopped the Rommel assault. Rommel retreated after he lacked the supplies to carry onward. The Kasserine Pass victory inspired Americans. They or the Allies wanted aggressive officers and troops who were trained at desert fighting. Eisenhower put the American forces in North Africa under the command of George S. Patton Jr. He was a tank commander and an expert strategist. Patton’s forces went east. They had confidence. At the same time, the British forces went westward from Egypt. They trapped the Axis armies. The Nazis decreased in power at Tunisia. Rommel escaped and his army didn’t win. By May of 1943, German and Italian forces surrendered with about 240,000 troops.

By 1943, the Nazis were on the defensive. January of 1943 was the time when Roosevelt and Churchill met at Casablanca, Morocco to plan their next moves. They decided to bomb Germany and invade Italy. FDR wanted the Allies to only accept unconditional surrender. FDR didn’t want Hitler, Mussolini, or Tojo to have some negotiated peace. FDR wanted complete victory. The Allied forces invaded Italy. First, they came to Sicily since it had little U-Boats and it was an island. By July 1943, British and American armies came into Sicily. Eisenhower commanded the joint American-British forces to strike. The Axis escaped into the mainland of Italy. The 38 day campaign caused the Allies to control the western Mediterranean. It paved the way for the invasion of the Italian mainland. It also ended the rule of Benito Mussolini years later. Italy surrendered on September 3, 1943. 5 weeks later, Italy declared war on Germany. Hitler didn’t give up on Italy yet. Mussolini was rescued by a German airborne force from a mountaintop fortress. Hitler made him a puppet leader of northern Italy. In southern Italy, the Nazis fought against the Allies.

The invasion of Italy by the Allies wasn’t easy. Italy had massive mountains, heavy rains, and tough terrain. Allied forces would not completely defeat the Axis until 1944, but the Allied force would have ma

A diferencia de Dan Ticktum, piloto del programa de jóvenes pilotos de Red Bull que sí ha sido evaluado por Helmut Marko como posible candidato a un asiento en Toro Rosso para 2019, Mick Schumacher no entra en los planes del austriaco.

Así lo ha confirmado en declaraciones a Auto Bild en las que afirma que “Mick no está en nuestra lista, no tenemos contrato alguno con él”. Tras seis victorias en las últimas diez carreras disputadas del Campeonato de Europa de Fórmula 3, el hijo del legendario Michael Schumacher ha entrado de lleno en la Silly Season de la Fórmula 1, pues Toro Rosso debe decidir qué pilotos utilizará en 2019 tras el ascenso de Pierre Gasly al primer equipo y la negativa a recuperar a Carlos Sainz, que ha fichado por McLaren.

Dan Ticktum no podrá tener la superlicencia obligatoria para competir en la Fórmula 1 aunque gane el campeonato, pero Mick Schumacher sí tendría los puntos suficientes en caso de proclamarse campeón, por lo que muchos se han apresurado a señalarle como posible candidato. A pesar de todo ello, el alemán no forma parte del programa de jóvenes pilotos de Red Bull y Marko ha negado tajantemente cualquier interés en ello.

Durante el Gran Premio de San Marino que tristemente pasará al recuerdo por se uno de los escenarios en los que Romano Fenati ha mostrado su peor cara (otra vez), el Campeonato del Mundo de MotoGP ha dado otro paso en el camino hacia las motos eléctricas.

La Copa del Mundo FIM MotoE ha revelado el que será su primer calendario de la historia, con cinco carreras que se disputarán como aperitivo en la temporada 2019 junto con el resto de categorías en la programación de cinco Grandes Premios.

El Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli ha sido el escenario en el que la cúpula de Dorna, la FIM, IRTA, Michelin como suministrador único de neumáticos y los equipos implicados han vuelto a reunirse para anunciar el programa de actuación de esta nueva categoría que marcará el comienzo en el horizonte eléctrico de MotoGP.

En total van a ser cinco las citas en las que veamos a las MotoE compartir pista con las MotoGP dentro del calendario 2019 de 19 Grandes Premios, con visitas a Jerez, Le Mans, Sachsenring, Red Bull Ring y Misano.

  • 5 de mayo: Jerez, GP de España
  • 19 de mayo: Le Mans, GP de Francia
  • 7 de julio: Sachsenring, GP de Alemania
  • 11 de agosto: Red Bull Ring, GP de Austria
  • 15 de septiembre: Misano, GP de San Marino
Energica Ego Motoe 2#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Por el momento las Energica Ego Corsa de carreras ruedan en unos tiempos de Moto3 con prestaciones de Moto2 y un peso bastante elevado, pero su progresión sólo acaba de comenzar y la evolución tanto de las motos como de su tecnología irá avanzando a medida que se asienten en los circuitos.

Con respecto a la versión de producción, la Ego Corsa recibirá algunos ajustes para hacerla más propia de circuito. El más importante es un peso reducido en 20 kg, lo que debería dejarlas en torno a los 240 kg. Además la potencia se establecerá en 120 kW (160 CV, +13 CV) con un par motor de 200 Nm, lo que les permitirá alcanzar una velocidad punta de 270 km/h. También se ha incrementado la capacidad de las baterías de 11,7 kW a 20 kW.

La duración de las carreras variará entre siete y diez vueltas, dependiendo de la longitud de cada una de las pistas. Esta decisión se ha tomado así para tener carreras frenéticas en las que todas las motos salgan con la potencia al máximo y limitadas sólo por la autonomía actual, pero sin que sea un factor determinante en las carreras.

En lo referente a los pilotos elegidos para pilotar por primera vez motos eléctricas en el Campeonato del Mundo de Motociclismo tendremos que esperar hasta el próximo Gran Premio de Aragón dentro de dos semanas. Allí conoceremos la configuración de los 12 equipos implicados:

  • Tech 3 Racing (dos motos)
  • LCR Team (dos motos)
  • Pramac Racing (dos motos)
  • Esponsorama Racing (dos motos)
  • Gresini Racing (dos motos)
  • Ángel Nieto Team (dos motos)
  • Sepang International Circuit (una moto)
  • Marc VDS Racing Team (una moto)
  • Ajo Motorsport (una moto)
  • Pons Racing (una moto)
  • Dynavolt Intact GP (una moto)
  • SIC58 Squadra Corse (una moto)

Los test oficiales programados para MotoE serán del 23 al 25 de noviembre, del 13 al 15 de marzo y del 23 al 25 de abril.

Juncker: EU Will Send Additional 10,000 Guards to Borders
12 September 2018
BBC World Service

The EU plans to send 10,000 more border guards to tackle unlawful immigration by 2020, the European Commission's president Jean-Claude Juncker said in his annual state of the union address.

He called for more solidarity, rather than "ad-hoc solutions" for people on migrant ships.

His speech also tackled the region's other burning issues - populism, terrorism and Brexit.

This is Mr Juncker's last 12 months in the role.

He also proposed a new Africa-Europe alliance, based on co-operation rather than charity, leading to a continent-to-continent free trade agreement.

He recommended that the euro be used more strategically as the biggest currency after the dollar.

And he called for strong leadership on Brexit. "The United Kingdom will never be an ordinary third country for us," he said.

The next elections to the European parliament are expected to be held in late May next year.

Where was the passion?

Analysis by Katya Adler, BBC Europe editor

This was Jean-Claude Juncker's final speech as European Commission president, a nod to his legacy.

He was clearly keen to pat himself on the back where he could. His key message: Europe is going in the right direction (though we can't be complacent). But where was the passion? Public opinion polls across Europe show people more in favour of the EU than they have been in recent years but - and this is a hugely important but - they're also more sympathetic towards populist parties, which are often nationalist and Eurosceptic in nature.

These parties tend to win favour among voters because their message is that they - unlike traditional parties, and unlike what they call remote technocrats in Brussels - are listening to people's concerns and care deeply about social issues.

Populist parties are expected to do very well in next year's elections for the European Parliament. Mr Juncker said little today to change that by persuading disenchanted voters.

In his speech, Jean Claude Juncker also made a notably controversial proposal to abolish EU member countries' vetoes on certain tax and foreign policy issues. This is likely to be pounced on by critics of the EU who accuse it of being an undemocratic institution.

Mr Juncker said the EU needed to be secure from the many threats that faced it.

"We will not militarise the European Union. What we want is to become more autonomous and live up to our global responsibilities," he said.

"Only a strong and united Europe can protect our citizens against threats internal and external - from terrorism to climate change."

On migration

Frontex, the European Border and Coast Guard Agency, currently employs 1,600 border guards across the EU, so the new figure is a substantial hike.

Mr Juncker committed to further developing the European Asylum Agency to offer more support to member states processing asylum seekers.

He stressed a need for legal routes for migration into Europe. "We need skilled migrants," he said.

From the start of Mr Juncker's mandate in 2014, migration has been a major crisis.

It has sparked a rise in populism that has seen power shifts in Italy, Austria, Hungary and Poland, with Sweden the latest country to register a rise in anti-immigration votes in an election.

On Wednesday morning, German Chancellor Angela Merkel told legislators in Berlin that illegal migration poses a greater threat to the cohesion of the European Union than the eurozone crisis.

German parliament is debating its government response to far-right demonstrations in recent weeks.

On Brexit

Mr Juncker offered some support to British Prime Minister Theresa May's Chequers plan, agreeing that the starting point for future partnership should be a free trade area between the EU and the UK.

Brexiteers discuss leadership challenge

He also emphasised the union's support for Ireland. "We want to find a creative solution that prevents a hard border in Northern Ireland. But we will equally be very outspoken should the British government walk away from its responsibilities under the Good Friday Agreement."

On terrorism

There will be "new rules to get terrorist content off the web within one hour".

Internet platforms will be required to develop new methods to police content but it is unclear what form those would take.

The written proposal states that net firms that fail to comply would face fines of up to 4% of their annual global turnover.

On Africa

He called it Europe's "twin continent" - a supportive nod to the African continent's attempts to build its own version of the EU.

He said the new Alliance for Sustainable Investment and Jobs between Europe and Africa would help create up to 10 million jobs there in the next five years.

"We will create framework that brings more private investment to Africa," he said, adding the EU External Investment Plan - launched two years ago - had already started the work.

BBC Africa correspondent Andrew Harding said Europe is increasingly emulating China's approach to Africa - focusing on trade and on partnerships rather than conflicts and charity. But Europe has some catching up to do, he added.

On populism

"We should embrace the kind of patriotism that is used for good, and never against others," he said. "We should reject the kind of exaggerated nationalism that projects hate and destroys all in its path. The kind of nationalism that points the finger at others instead of searching for ways to better live together."

Is Europe seeing a nationalist surge?

After the speech, the EU parliament voted to start disciplinary procedures against Hungary for breaching core democratic values.

On Tuesday, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said he would not respond to "blackmail".

The commission has already launched disciplinary proceedings against Poland over reforms it says challenge the rule of law.

On the economy

"Europe's economy has now grown for 21 consecutive quarters… Never have so many men and women - 239 million people - been in work in Europe," Mr Juncker said.

"Youth unemployment is at 14.8%. This is still too high a figure but is the lowest it has been since the year 2000."

On clock changes

"Clock-changing must stop," the EU Commission president said, announcing an end to EU laws insisting countries change their clocks twice a year. "Member States should themselves decide whether their citizens live in summer or winter time."

The next elections to the European parliament are expected to be held in late May next year.

The Spanish cycling federation has announced its elite men's long list for the 2018 UCI Road World Championships, which take place in Innsbruck, Austria, later this month.

As one might expect, the 13-rider list for the road race is packed with Movistar riders, with four riders from the Spanish trade team in the mix for the eight places that Spain has available for the event on September 30.

All but guaranteed a start in the road race is 38-year-old Alejandro Valverde, who was still sitting second overall at the Vuelta a España ahead of stage 17 on Wednesday.

A rainbow jersey continues to elude Valverde, who has stepped onto the podium at the Worlds road race six times. He's finished second twice – in 2003 and 2005 – and third four times: in 2006, and three times in a row between 2012 and 2014.

His powers may have slightly waned since then, but his consistency at the Vuelta, with two stage wins already this year, indicate that he's still hungry, and Valverde will likely start in Innsbruck as one of the favourites.

Movistar teammate Mikel Landa will be hoping to return from serious injury to make the team.

Estos pacíficos jóvenes que no quieren quedarse en España ni Grecia ni Turquía, sino ir a Austria, Suiza o Alemania, sin un objetivo claro. Seguro que los hay buenos, pero también hay no buenos.

Si le preguntas a la jubilada de muchos barrios periféricos de España tomados por inmigrantes, te dirá que su barrio es la selva y no se atreve a bajar sola a la calle si no es con escolta, y que en su banco ya no se puede sentar porque ahora es propiedad de una banda latina.
Otra cosa es discutir si este es motivo para parar o reenfocar la inmigración o no hacerlo. Otro debate.

Lo que no se puede negar es que estos países avanzados y ricos con niveles casi inexistentes de delincuencia en los que el periódico se paga a voluntad dejando un euro en una caja de carton, se ven innundados de deambulantes que roban móviles a tirón, consideran que una chica rubia con un top es una guarra a la que puedes meter mano, etc... crean inseguridad y malestar.

Ayer, once de septiembre, los independentistas catalanes protagonizaron, con motivo de la celebración de la diada, una astracanada más, dicho sea en el sentido de sus disparatadas acciones públicas. No lo digo porque conmemoren una humillante derrota a manos de las tropas de Felipe V quien, por cierto, fue el rey que autorizó por primera vez a que barcos catalanes pudieran comerciar con las Indias, que era monopolio castellano. Ni siquiera porque reivindicasen la independencia de Cataluña, allá ellos con su matraca. Lo señalo por la sarta de mentiras históricas que propalan y que están en la misma línea de esa especie de «cómicos ambulantes» que, con fondos de la «Generalitat», van difundiendo que Santa Teresa de Jesús era catalana y abadesa del monasterio de Pedralbes, que Miguel de Cervantes, catalán también, escribió el Quijote en dicha lengua, que Leonardo de Vinci era de Vic, como indica claramente su nombre que ha sufrido una modificación -culpa de los malditos españoles-, al igual que como, su propio nombre también indica, Tartessos estaba en Tortosa.
Las mentiras que buscan inocular en nuestros días arrancan de la propia denominación, como de Secesión, de lo que había sido la guerra de Sucesión, llamada así por combatirse por la sucesión al trono de la monarquía hispánica, tras la muerte de Carlos II. Un guerra que el once de septiembre de 1714 vivía, prácticamente, su último episodio con la rendición de Barcelona, después de firmada la paz de Utrecht hacía más de un año. Mentira es la tergiversación de la figura de Rafael Casanova, quien la víspera de entrar de las tropas borbónicas en la ciudad alentó a su defensa con una arenga en la que, empuñando la bandera de Santa Eulalia, uno de los símbolos de la ciudad, declaraba, textualmente, que luchaban «por su Rey, por su honor, por la Patria y por la libertad de toda España». Palabras ocultadas por los independentistas y sin ningún atractivo para los secesionistas. Casanova, que fue herido en los últimos combates, se recuperó de sus heridas. Fue amnistiado en 1719 y ejerció como abogado hasta 1737 aplicando la nueva legislación que imperaba en Cataluña, tras los decretos de Nueva Planta. Algo parecido a lo que ha ocurrido con alguno de los actuales próceres del independentismo -el caso de Elsa Artadi es paradigmático-, con la aplicación del artículo 155 de la Constitución. Ocultan también que, en Cataluña, la guerra se desencadenó al romper los «vigatans», nombre que se daba en el Principado a los partidarios del Archiduque Carlos de Austria, que aspiraba al trono de la Monarquía Hispánica, el pacto cerrado con Felipe V en las Cortes de Barcelona de 1701-1702. En virtud del cual el monarca juraba los fueros y los catalanes le prometían fidelidad. No fue el rey quien rompió ese pacto, sino aquellos catalanes que se alzaron contra él, tras la firma con Inglaterra del pacto de Génova.
En medios independentistas catalanes quiere justificarse el pacto con los ingleses, invocando que los fueros estaban en peligro. No es cierto. Felipe V respetó los de Navarra que le mantuvo su fidelidad a lo largo de aquel duro conflicto bélico. Abolió los de aquellos territorios que se sublevaron: Aragón, Valencia y Baleares, amén de Cataluña. Son mentiras como las que algunos independentistas utilizan en traducciones torticeras para poner en boca de un juez, que los acusa de graves delitos, de lo que no ha dicho y denunciarlo ante los tribunales.

          Nuevos datos sobre la agricultura temprana en América del Sur      Cache   Translate Page      
(a) Localidades de sitios costeros del Holoceno Medio y Tardío mencionadas en el estudio. La estrella roja indica la ubicación geográfica de los sitios costeros del Holoceno medio (Forte, Corondó, ambos en la región de Saquarema) con posible evidencia de producción de alimentos. (b) Ubicaciones de Morro do Ouro (MO) y Río Comprido (RC) en Joinville.

Investigadores de la Universidad de São Paulo (Brasil), la Universidad de York (Reino Unido), la Universidad de la Región de Joinville (Brasil), el Naturhistorisches Museum (Austria) y del Museo Arqueológico Sambaqui (Brasil) han hallado que los humanos ya cultivaban plantas en una franja costera de Brasil hace aproximadamente 4.800 años.

A partir de dientes y huesos de humanos que vivieron en ese momento, encontrados en un yacimiento al sur del país, el equipo apunta que comían una dieta rica en carbohidratos, lo que sugiere que podían haber cultivado plantas como el ñame o la batata. Esta zona, conocida como Bosque Atlántico, no se había considerado anteriormente como parte de la historia de la primera agricultura en el continente, según la información de la Universidad de York recogida por DiCYT.

El autor principal del estudio, André Colonese, del Departamento de Arqueología de la Universidad de York, apunta que "el descubrimiento puede colocar al Bosque Atlántico en el mapa del cultivo temprano de plantas en las Américas". "La costa del Bosque Atlántico ha sido en gran medida periférica en esa narración histórica, a pesar de que su biodiversidad vegetal es única y el registro arqueológico de la ocupación humana denso”.

El nuevo estudio indica que las poblaciones permanentes de esta zona subsistieron en una economía mixta, en la que probablemente se incluía el cultivo de plantas a lo largo de esta estrecha franja costera. Los resultados apoyan la teoría emergente de que la producción de alimentos en el Bosque Atlántico emergió al mismo tiempo que en la Amazonia y la Cuenca de La Plata.

Otras evidencias, como las herramientas de piedra para el procesamiento de plantas y restos vegetales presentes en el sarro dental de estos individuos, también confirmaron indirectamente el consumo regular de recursos vegetales. Tal nivel de dependencia de estas plantas probablemente requería algún tipo de gestión para garantizar rendimientos a largo plazo y predecibles, según el equipo de investigación.

"No está claro, sin embargo, si las plantas domesticadas formaban parte de su menú, y en qué medida estas personas ejercieron algunas presiones selectivas sobre los recursos vegetales. Lo que está claro es que nuestra comprensión de la naturaleza, el tiempo y el lugar donde se produjo el cultivo de plantas en América del Sur está en continuo desarrollo y el Bosque Atlántico tiene mucho que aportar en este debate”, añade Colonese.

Germany and Russia: The Long Dance

Perhaps this time is different.

By George Friedman


Russian President Vladimir Putin and German Chancellor Angela Merkel met last weekend at Meseberg, the guesthouse of the German federal government. Expectations for the meeting, on both sides, were rightfully low. But the meeting comes at a time when both the Germans and Russians are redefining their place in the international system, which for them also means redefining their own relationship. In the 20th century, shifts in the Russo-German relationship tended to have profound consequences for Europe. It’s worth considering what it could mean this time.

Contemporary Europe originates in the early 1990s when the Soviet Union collapsed and the Maastricht Treaty creating the European Union went into effect. For the Germans, these two events meant that their primary interest was no longer the defense of Germany against the Soviet Union, and therefore their primary partner in said defense, the United States, was no longer central. Instead, Germany’s immediate problem was the reintegration of the former German Democratic Republic. Longer term, the focus was on turning the European Economic Community into more than a free trade zone and using the new tools of solidarity to ensure German economic interests. Given the paucity of strategic threats, Germany did not require a coherent security strategy beyond maintaining the EU, and its military capabilities, substantial during the Cold War, atrophied.

Germany’s relationship with Russia was primarily about access to Russian energy supplies. Since its founding, Germany has needed an industrial plant that was much larger than domestic consumption could support. Its industry allowed the German economy to surge and preserved social stability. Imperial Germany competed with the British Empire, selling to Russia, Austria-Hungary and southern Europe and buying natural resources from them. Nazi Germany attempted to create a similar structure, imposed by military force. Contemporary Germany remains dependent on imports of resources and exports of goods. The European Union is one leg of its strategy, and Russia has been another.

In the first decade after the Soviet collapse, Russia did not have a coherent strategy. It was, as a nation, in a state of shock, having freed itself from Soviet structures but having not yet built a new edifice. On the one hand, it needed economic relations with the rest of Europe. On the other hand, it needed to secure itself against foreign threats. The Russians, like the Soviets, pursued a strategy of strategic depth. They sought a neutral or pro-Russia buffer to the west – consisting of the Baltic states, Belarus and Ukraine – and to the south in the North Caucasus.

The encroachment of NATO into Russia’s western buffer and the South Caucasus created a strategic crisis for Russia. The development of a pro-Western government in Ukraine in 2014 was particularly alarming. To make matters worse, oil prices plummeted later in the year – a devastating development for Russia’s economy, which still relies on exports of raw materials. Russia’s strategic and economic position seemed to be unraveling.

The foundation of German national strategy has not quite unraveled, but it’s no longer as secure as it was. The EU is fragmenting along national and class lines. It remains Germany’s primary market for exports, but confidence that this will be permanent has been shaken. Now it is at odds with the United States, which is demanding more defense expenditure from Germany, along with the unstated demand that Germany take more risk alongside the United States. But the Germans have no interest in joining the U.S. in the Middle East, the South China Sea or North Korea.

Germany and Russia, then, both have problems with the global hegemon. These problems precede the Donald Trump administration and go deeper than politics and diplomacy. For Germany, the U.S. constantly wants to divert it from its primary interest (the EU) and creates regional friction – with Russia, for example. And for Russia, the Americans are extending their sphere of influence, particularly in Eastern Europe and the Baltics, with no visible motive except to threaten Russia’s security.

At the same time, Germany and Russia see potential benefits from cooperation. Germany’s economic and regional interests require oil and gas, which Russia has. Russia’s economic development requires foreign investment and technology, which Germany has. This is familiar ground. Germany and Russia explored cooperation between 1871 and 1914. Between the two world wars, Russia provided Germany with military assistance, allowing it to evade the Treaty of Versailles. From 1939 to 1941, they were bound by treaty and jointly participated in the invasion of Poland. Of course, both periods ended disastrously. In World War I, Imperial Germany devastated Imperial Russia. Similarly, despite the military assistance (the Treaty of Rapallo) and the 1939 Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact, Germany invaded Russia and brutalized it again during World War II. American power in West Germany helped avert similar bloodshed during the Cold War.

In short, the history of Russo-German relations since Germany’s unification in 1871 has consisted of tentative attempts at cooperation followed by catastrophic wars and near-wars. Neither country has forgotten that, but the temptation to try again, on the assumption that this time is different, is powerful. If history is consistent, then the U.S. is indispensable. It was U.S. lend-lease and the invasion on the western front that enabled the Soviets to defeat Germany in World War II. It was the U.S. that guaranteed West Germany’s security in the Cold War. Each has been, in a real sense, saved from the other by the Americans.

Of course, if this time really is different, then forming an understanding and pushing the U.S. out of the equation makes sense. But if it remains the case, as it was during the 20th century, that Russia needs buffers to its west, and Germany needs markets and resources under its control, then neither side really has a solid basis for cooperation. In that case, this looks like 1939, when the two sides signed a pact that they knew the other would betray, with the expectation that they would betray first, when the time was right. An alliance of those thinking themselves more clever than the other doesn’t usually end well.

But perhaps this time is different.

Paradise Lost

How Tourists Are Destroying the Places They Love

Travel is no longer a luxury good. Airlines like Ryanair and EasyJet have contributed to a form of mass tourism that has made local residents feel like foreigners in cities like Barcelona and Rome. The infrastructure is buckling under the pressure. By DER SPIEGEL Staff

Photo Gallery: Is Tourism Ruining Europe's Cities?

It doesn't take long before the woman at the hotel reception pulls out a city map of Porto. Look, she says, there's the Old Town and the Douro, there's the harbor and here, by the way, the pride evident in her voice, is the world's most beautiful bookshop: Livraria Lello.

It sounds fantastic and the place looks even more amazing in the photos. It's located in a two-story, neo-Gothic building with lots of dark wood, an abundance of old books, ornamentation and stained glass, and a curved staircase right in the middle. It was opened in 1906, a cathedral of books, a dream for voracious bookworms from all over the world. When traveling, we often look more for the beauty of the past than that of the present. We may even buy a book for vacation reading, to while away evenings on the Atlantic coast. It has been said that J.K. Rowling often visited the Livraria when she lived in Porto at the beginning of the 1990s, a time when she taught English and began dreaming up the Harry Potter series.

Porto is not a big city -- with just over 200,000 inhabitants, the Old Town is easily manageable. The first thing you notice when approaching the Livraria Lello is the long line in front of it. Young Japanese travelers, Scandinavian backpackers, families from France, couples from China, Americans and Germans.

An imposing bouncer stands at the door of the bookshop. To get in, you must first purchase a five-euro ticket bearing the visage of Fernando Pessoa, Portugal's most famous poet, in the shop next door. There, too, visitors must wait in line, with crowd-control barriers set up just like at the airport check-in desk. Those waiting in line are guided past shelves full of souvenirs, postcards and keychains. The standard tourist bric-à-brac.

The bookstore is every bit is as beautiful as the one in the photos, even if it's not much of a bookstore these days. No one browses through the merchandise here. They all seem to be taking pictures with their smartphones -- photos that look exactly like the more than 7,000 images already posted on TripAdvisor, the world's largest travel website, where Livraria is listed as one of the city's top sightseeing attractions.

Just like the rest of the country, Livraria Lello stood on the verge of bankruptcy four years ago as a result of the financial crisis. But even then, the bookshop had no lack of visitors. The problem was that people were buying fewer and fewer books. Someone suggested the store ought to start charging an admission fee of five euros. It may have sounded crazy at the time, but 4,000 people now visit Livraria each day while during the summer, the number of daily visitors swells to 5,000. The store had 1.2 million visitors in 2017 and revenues of over 7 million euros.

If the thought of buying a book does cross a visitor's mind, and there are many tomes to be found here -- from translations of classics of Portuguese literature to, of course, the Harry Potter series -- the ticket serves as a credit toward that purchase. It is rumoured that Livraria Lello served as the inspiration for Flourish & Blotts, the bookstore where Harry Potter buys his magic books. But Livraria ultimately feels more like a museum or a theater backdrop than a real place.

Predatory Modern Tourism

More than anything, in fact, it has become a symbol for the predatory nature of modern-day tourism -- a style of travel that is devouring all the beautiful places which drives it.

For residents of Porto, however, the bookstore has a different story to tell. It is one of economic upswing in a country that was in the throes of crisis not all that long ago. Indeed, Portugal owes its recovery in part to double-digit growth in tourism, including in the areas in the once impoverished north around Porto. Ryanair and EasyJet have been flying to the city for years, and it has long been regarded as the new in-spot for city-escape tourism. Last year, around 2.5 million foreign tourists visited the region, and half of them visited Livraria Lello. Porto still hasn't become as overrun as places like Barcelona or Amsterdam, cities where locals have begun defending themselves against the hordes of tourists who seem to be taking over. But a divide has developed in Porto -- between the tourist city and the city for locals. One can't help but wonder when a local last visited Livraria Lello. Do Porto residents also have to stand in line and pay five euros?

There were times when the hotels lining the beaches in Benidorm, in Arenal on Mallorca and along the Adriatic Sea in Italy, were symbols of the ugliness of modern mass tourism. In retrospect, though, that era seems almost quiet. Benidorm and Arenal are cities that were created so that Europeans would have a place lie on the beach in summer. They are artificial resorts and not very nice, but they do serve a purpose: as factories for mass tourism that could just as easily be removed should the need arise.

Today, these tourist reserves no longer fill the demand. The crowds of sun-seekers have grown so large on the beaches of Southern Europe, that some small bays on Mallorca should actually be closed due to overcrowding. Even along the North and Baltic seas in Germany, hotels and pensions are fully booked out in places like Sylt and Rügen.

Yet beach holidaymakers now comprise just under half of modern tourism in Europe, while the other half are cruise and city-escape travelers. For years, it's been tourists rather than local residents who have been shaping the image of some of Europe's most beautiful and unique cities. They are being transformed into museums and theme parks and are developing special zones for tourists where locals may work, but certainly don't live. Tourists sit in traditional restaurants devoid of locals as they watch other tourists. They are no longer places where people come together, but where divides seem to deepen. At times, it really does feel like a tourist invasion. They come, they stay briefly and then they are gone again, but they act as though they own the cities they visit.

The virtue of hospitality "which one wants to invoke is destroyed by making use of it," German writer Hans Magnus Enzensberger wrote back in 1958 in his widely cited treatise on mass tourism. At the time, mass tourism as we know it today hadn't even been invented yet, and traveling was still the privilege of the well-to-do. At most, those who could afford it would drive their modest VW Beetles from Germany over the Brenner Pass to Italy. For most people, a visit to Venice or Rome was something they could only dream about.

Modern-day tourism has very little in common with that dream. An ever-growing fleet of budget airlines transports millions of people to the world's beaches and sights, long-distance buses offer trips at ridiculously low prices, and cruise ships dump thousands of passengers into the ports, with as many as five vessels a day docking in Palma de Mallorca, Barcelona and Dubrovnik, pumping additional hordes into city centers that are already hopelessly overcrowded. Once there, they eternalize their memories of the sights they see in the form of selfies. After that, it's on to the next hot spot.

Travel has gone from being a luxury product to an everyday good, with the boom in discount travel and the internet opening an increasing number of new markets. If you want to spend a few days in Palma, Barcelona or on the beach, it only takes a few clicks to find the right flight and accommodation. Often at a bargain-basement price.

But the infrastructure is no longer up to the task of handling the onslaught of travelers -- and this is true in Germany as it is elsewhere. During this hot summer, chaos descended on Germany's airports, with crowds of people jostling in front of monitors as flight cancellations rose by 146 percent in the first half of the year and the number of delays by 31 percent. In Munich and Frankfurt, air traffic even collapsed entirely within a few days of each other after passengers walked through security without being properly screened. And the situation at Berlin's airports has become a national embarrassment.

'Tourist Go Home'

With overloaded infrastructure and overcrowded cities and beaches, the travel industry seems to be choking on its own success. An estimated 670 million people traveled in Europe last year and it is likely that this summer alone, the Continent hosted 200 million tourists.

It's not just Europeans exploring each others' countries. The boom is also fueled by people from countries that have benefited handsomely from globalization. Much of the responsibility for the growth in global tourism lies with members of the newly emerging middle classes in Russia and with people from the Far East and Arab countries.

They also bear a significant share of the responsibility for the growing problems. The boom, after all, is also producing losers, and many of them have begun revolting, as recently seen in the pilot strikes at European budget carrier Ryanair, whose poor working conditions and low wages are what make the airline's low-cost strategy possible in the first place.

But residents of the cities and regions affected are perhaps the biggest losers. When, for example, it becomes more lucrative for property owners to rent their apartments out to tourists on a daily or weekly basis than to locals who need an affordable place to live. Or when commuters have to squeeze into overcrowded public transportation because local buses and trains have been filled to capacity by tourists. Or when people no longer feel comfortable in their neighborhood because they have become a minority in the cafés and restaurants they traditionally frequented. That is, assuming they can get in at all or afford the new prices.

The tourism industry suddenly finds itself confronted by a group that it hadn't previously paid much attention to. Having always focused on the guests, it tended to overlook the hosts. "Tourism is a phenomenon that creates many private profits but also many socialized losses," says Christian Laesser, a tourism professor at the University of St. Gallen in Switzerland.

Often, the profits benefit very few -- the landlords and hotel owners primarily, but also, to a much lesser extent, the often poorly paid employees working in the travel sector. The rest are stuck with the noise and the mess, the high rents and the feeling of being a stranger in their own country, like being an extra in some Disney World for tourists.

In many places, that feeling has begun manifesting itself in expressions of open hostility. Activists spray paint "tourists go home" on the walls in many places overflowing with tourists, and in Mallorca, they even proclaimed a "summer of action," with protests against travelers at the airport and in hotels. In Palma, activists have thrown horse droppings at tourists. In Barcelona they have pushed people from bicycles and harassed them in cafés. In Venice, self-proclaimed pirates have taken the dramatic step of blocking cruise ships from entering the port.

The notion that tourists are foreign invaders who represent some kind of threat to the local population's cultural identity broadly echoes the way refugees are viewed in large parts of Europe. But whereas hardship has driven the refugees from their homelands, the tourists are seeking to escape the boredom of everyday life.

Barcelona has experience with both of these globalization-driven migratory movements, but the protests there have only been directed at the tourists and not refugees. Last year, 150,000 protesters even called on the government to allow more refugees into the country. "Immigration has changed the city, but tourism is destabilizing it," Britain's Guardian newspaper wrote in June, describing the mood in the city.

'Overtourism'

The travel industry has begun recognizing that its own success is increasingly undermining the foundation of its business model. "Overtourism" is the buzzword currently dominating industry conferences. Discussions are taking place about how tourist flows can be directed such that they will no longer be perceived as a threat.

But is that possible wiht the numbers of tourists continuing to rise? In the emerging countries of Asia, umpteen millions of people are ascending into the new middle class each year, meaning they can suddenly afford to travel to exotic destinations. And they do. According to industry estimates, the number of tourists globally is expected to increase by 500 million by 2030, with the Chinese making up roughly half of that growth. And many of them will want to visit Europe and its sights -- events like the lavender blossom in Provence.

It must have been during the summer of 2008, Jean-Paul Angelvin recalls. That's when a film team from China rang and asked if they could take a few shots in his lavender fields. "They filmed a young couple, and, after a few hours, they were finished. I didn't think much about it at the time," says Angelvin, an elderly gentleman wearing gray shorts and beige compression stockings. Angelvin and his family have been cultivating lavender in Provence for close to 40 years, at an elevation of 580 meters on a plateau in Valensole.

Angelvin has gone through some hard times, like when prices hit rock bottom during the 1990s. But demand picked up again, and during the lavender blossom in June and July, the small boutique the family established also managed to produce a bit of profit.

Then summer 2012 arrived and Angelvin's shop turned into a gold mine. A growing number of tour buses began stopping in front of his boutique -- buses filled with Chinese tourists. They wanted to perform exact recreations of the scenes they knew from the popular (and cheesy) Chinese TV series "Dreams Behind a Crystal Curtain." They were the shots that had been filmed four years earlier in Angelvin's lavender fields. "Never in my life did I think this shoot would have triggered such a wave," the lavender farmer says. Jean-Frédéric Gonthier of the regional tourism association estimates that 3,000 Chinese visitors came the first summer after the start of series production. Today, he estimates, there are around 60,000 Chinese visitors each season.

"To create something out of the boom other than just suffering, we have to understand the Chinese," says Gonthier. To address the need, he trained Chinese-speaking guides and also hired two people to answer questions about the region on the Chinese messaging service WeChat. Gonthier is hoping these efforts can help to change the vacationing patterns of the Chinese and motivate them to stay longer in the region rather than just rushing through.

Lavender farmer Angelvin also grasped what was happening and was quick to react. During the lavender season, he hires temporary Chinese-speaking staff. One kilometer further down the road, Pauline Jaubert expanded her lavender boutique Terraroma for the second time this spring. "We have adapted," says Jaubert, who now offers T-shirts, cookies and aprons in addition to lavender oil and soap. The Jauberts have a small restaurant on the top floor that offers Asian noodle dishes during the high season.

The farmers have become tourism professionals. Revenues at the larger lavender boutiques on the plateau are estimated to be several hundred thousand euros a year. Indeed, Angelvin's shop generates more income in good years than the lavender harvest itself.

Not everyone, though, views the guests from China as a "classic win-win situation," as Gonthier from the tourist office calls it. Jean-Jacques Valone says that a photo in the field does little in terms of cultural exchange. Valone is also a lavender farmer, but he doesn't have a boutique. "They are mostly just a bother to me," he says. "They litter the fields with paper and cut stems of lavender." Besides, the region doesn't really benefit financially when people just rush through and, at most, order a pizza and split it among four people, he says.

As might be expected, Gonthier takes a more positive view. He points out that the Chinese approach to tourism is also changing and that an increasing number of younger travelers from China are avoiding mass tourism and are instead traveling on their own and sometimes even staying overnight. Such travelers, he says, "no longer hunt desperately for a Chinese restaurant. Instead they try Provençal dishes." He sounds a bit like he's just discovered a rich vein of gold he hopes to be able to mine for some time to come. A strategy paper notes that the manner in which the tourists are welcomed and treated is vital and must be done in a "Chinese-friendly" way.  
Travel Has Become Almost a Human Right



There are many reasons a place attracts tourists -- it might be the sun, the beach or the sights. Or perhaps just lavender and a Chinese television series. But why would someone who lives in faraway Riyadh, Abu Dhabi or Doha come to an Austrian village of just 10,000 inhabitants?

In a word: the weather. In summer, the maximum temperatures in Zell am See, a lakeside town in the Alps of western Austria, are usually just over 20 degrees Celsius (68 degrees Fahrenheit). In Riyadh, temperatures can often be over 40 degrees. Pleasant temperatures, water for swimming and snow in the mountains are all draws for tourists. And who wouldn't prefer to cool off rather than sizzle?

In the city center, some restaurants have adapted by focusing more on these guests, offering menus in Arabic, pita bread and halal meat. Down at the lake, on the esplanade behind the Grand Hotel, crowds of largely Arabic tourists sit, enjoying their holiday.

Nadine Scharfenort is a geographer at the University of Passau in Germany. She has just completed a postdoctoral thesis called "The Conflict Potential of Arabic Tourism in Zell am See-Kaprun." Scharfenort says that local residents are highly ambivalent about the presence of these tourists. Some are open-minded, stressing the positive aspects, like the fact that these tourists don't drink alcohol. But others are bothered by headscarves and have general reservations about Arabs.

In the evening, as dusk settles over the lake, it starts to rain. The European tourists rush under the canopies and awnings of the adjacent hotels and restaurants. In front of the Grand Hotel, though, two small girls merrily jump into the puddles. For them, the rain is a highlight of their holiday.

The travel industry is probably the most important economic sector in the world. It's far larger than the oil industry or the automotive industry and has an estimated turnover of 7 trillion euros a year, about 10 percent of global economic output. In addition to direct revenues, this staggering sum also includes related business sectors such as the hotel trade or the transport industry with all its aircraft, cruise ships and buses. It also includes souvenir shops and travel agencies.

In Spain, popular among holiday-makers, the travel industry accounts for fully 14.9 percent of the country's gross domestic product. And in many nations -- Greece, Portugal, Spain, France and the Czech Republic, for example -- the number of people entering the country exceeds the number of inhabitants. This creates jobs and modest prosperity, but it also establishes a certain dependency, which can also be dangerous if, as seen in Turkey and Egypt in recent years, there is a sudden massive plunge in the number of travelers.

Tourists, though, have begun returning to both countries. After all, when it comes to vacation, we tend to ignore potential terrorist threats or human rights violations -- as long as the price is right and the weather is nice.

Cheap, Cheaper, Cheapest

Affordability is the main thing -- and travel has indeed gotten much cheaper thanks to the internet. Travel portals like Expedia, Trivago and Booking.com have edged out established travel agencies and even pose a threat to major European travel companies like TUI or Thomas Cook, which previously dominated the package travel market. Such websites constantly offer flights and overnight stays at bargain prices.

In contrast to holiday providers from the era of package tours featured in catalogs, these digital competitors don't operate their own hotels and they don't own airplanes, cruise ships, travel agencies or other things with expensive overhead costs. Their money is earned solely by brokering services provided by others. They can literally control prices in real time on their platforms and they constantly optimize their algorithms to generate revenues. They collect targeted data on customer preferences and are now even able to create tailor-made offerings on the fly.

This system, of course, wouldn't work without budget airlines, and without the internet, airlines such as Ryanair or EasyJet would not have become what they are today: the powerful drivers of the current tourism boom. Thirty years ago, they didn't even exist yet. Back then, Europe was still strictly regulated, with specific rules on which airline was allowed to fly to what destination. Each country had its own airline, and national airlines weren't allowed to service domestic routes in other European countries. Usually, there were also limits on the number of seats that could be offered on cross-border flights. The regulations were in place to protect the respective national airlines that were, almost without exception, state-owned.

Air traffic in Europe only gradually began opening up in 1987. Irish budget pioneer Ryanair, in particular, benefited from market liberalization, because it made excessive use of the new freedoms in air transportation. And because it was more consistent -- and brutal -- than any other company when it came to low costs. Budget carriers in Germany and Europe have a 30-percent market share today, a figure that is still growing.

Thanks to low ticket prices, travel has almost become a universal right, just like buying cheap T-shirts or shopping at a discount supermarket like Aldi or Lidl. This has also meant that a weekend trip to Berlin or Barcelona was suddenly seen as a viable alternative to an excursion to the local lake -- with dramatic consequences for the places and cities that were being visited. Barcelona, for example, has gone from being an insider tip to a mass destination, and budget airlines now have a market share of almost 70 percent in the city. At Berlin's Schönefeld Airport, budget carriers are responsible for almost 90 percent of all arrivals and departures. In the past 10 years alone, the number of passengers at the airport has more than doubled, from around six million to almost 13 million travelers.

This has helped transform the German capital city into one of the most popular destinations for overnight stays in Europe after London and Paris. During the evenings and on weekends, hundreds of young people from all over Europe can be seen partying across Berlin's central Mitte district. Although they don't leave a lot of money behind when they leave the city, they do leave tons of trash and empty beer and liquor bottles.

For years it looked as if the two systems, traditional hub-and-spoke airlines and budget airlines, could continue to grow side by side uninhibited. But this summer, the model seemed to hit its limits for the first time. Flight cancellations, delays and re-bookings have become the order of the day. According to the International Air Transportation Association (IATA), delays in air traffic in Europe alone increased by 133 percent during the first half of the year. Some airports, such as those in Frankfurt, Düsseldorf and Berlin, are now asking travelers to arrive at the airport up to three hours before takeoff so that they can cope with the masses.

The chaos at the airports began with Air Berlin's bankruptcy last year. Lufthansa subsidiary Eurowings, but also some of its competitors, secured some of the route rights without having the corresponding aircraft and crews. Demand also rose more strongly than expected. While just under 104 million guests took off from German airports in 2014, this figure had risen to over 117 million by 2017. Foreign passengers are also increasingly using German airports to catch their flights or as hubs for connecting flights.

The already heavily loaded system isn't designed for such a boom. And it's unlikely that the situation will change anytime soon. European air traffic controller Eurocontrol even expects the number of flights departing up to two hours late to increase sevenfold by 2040.

The rising stress associated with travel, however, is not enough to deter tourists. Sociologist Paolo Giuntarelli thinks he knows why: "Mass tourism is a phenomenon of our post-materialistic society. Possessions are no longer a priority -- we just want to be entertained," he says.

A City Overrun

Giuntarelli is the head of tourism for the Lazio region, with offices located in the capital city of Rome. He's here to hold down the fort, with many Romans having fled to the countryside in the height of the summer. It is too hot for them in the city.

But the high temperatures don't appear to have deterred visitors to Rome.

There are weeks when the Italian capital is literally overrun -- like at the end of July, when 60,000 altar boys and girls from all over Europe invaded the city, including 50,000 from Germany. The motto of the pilgrimage was: "Seek peace and pursue it!" Above all, though, it was the sights that they pursued.

On Tuesday night, they visited the pope. When their audience ended at around 8 p.m., St. Peter's Square was littered with plastic bottles, lyrics to hymns, Haribo bags and banana peels. The situation was similar at Pius XII Square, located just before it. The garbage bags on the side of the street had long since overflowed or burst. Even the pious produce refuse.

Rome is all about long nights on the piazza, with pasta, red wine and jovial singing. Late at night, though, tourists are no longer allowed to drink alcohol on the streets of Rome, with Mayor Virginia Raggi having decreed in 2017 that the ban would be imposed each year between July and October.

Rome needs tourists -- but it also needs to rein them in. This is most evident at the Trevi Fountain, where the first visitors start showing up early in the morning. Police stand guard around the clock so that nobody misbehaves. If someone holds their foot too close to the water, a carabinieri blows his whistle -- and those who dare to jump into the fountain face a fine of up to 450 euros under rules imposed last year by the mayor.

As a source of revenue, though, the visitors are highly welcome. Many throw coins over their shoulders into the fountain, because they believe it means they will return to Rome. Municipal workers regularly vacuum the coins out of the fountain, adding up to 1 million euros a year, which are donated to Rome's Catholic charity Caritas.

Marco D'Eramo lives right next door to Rome's Colosseum. He can monitor the daily growth of tourism right outside the front door of his seven-story building. Until about 15 years ago, all of his neighbors were Italian, but now 12 of the 40 units are holiday rentals.

Not long ago, D'Eramo set out to write down what was happening around him. But he quickly realized that there was much more to the story. So he wrote a book called "The World in a Selfie," which provides a thorough description of what he calls the "tourist era."

He believes the transformation of entire cities due to tourism follows a simple economic logic: The needs of the locals do not correspond with the needs of the tourists. Whereas a local resident might need a cobbler, the tourist wants a snack. With the rise of tourism, craftsman establishments are being transformed into fast food outlets -- and the neighbor with worn-out shoes ultimately loses out.

The transformation of an entire city happens very fast, d'Eramo has observed. If the Lonely Planet guide reports on a market, where "the locals do their shopping," more and more tourists flood the place. "At first it still looks authentic. But increasingly, items are sold that are of interest for tourists. And before long, the insider tip has become a purely tourist market."

In 2017, 14.7 million visitors poured through Rome's alleyways, representing one quarter of all visitors to Italy. Overnight visitors stayed an average of 2.5 days, much like in other major European cities.

Travelers rarely end up in the surrounding areas, in Frascati, Tivoli or other parts of the region, known as Latium. Giuntarelli, Rome's chief tourism official, would like to redirect them to the smaller towns and cities in the region, where they could experience the Italian way of life, "good food, good wine." Or follow the Way of St. Francis pilgrimage trail, which runs through Latium.

Giuntarelli extols the virtues of Latium in newspaper and radio ads and distributes pamphlets at tourism expos. One of them advertises Latium as a great site for a wedding, another presents Latium's thermal baths. Giuntarelli also wants to make the region known as a golf destination. "We're working on it," he says.

Little Money, But Lots of Garbage

Because Latium isn't alone in its problems, the region has teamed up with NecsTour, a network of 37 European regions that have committed themselves to sustainable tourism, a form of travel that satisfies economies and vacationers without harming the environment.

In other words, the opposite of cruise ships. "That is not the tourism that we want to support," says Giuntarelli.

The gigantic ships belch massive amounts of pollution into the air and contribute little to regional trade or the local hospitality industries. Their passengers are only in the city for a few hours, they spend their nights on board and often eat food they bring with them when they go on land. They leave behind little money, but lots of garbage. "Cruise ship tourism is good," says Giuntarelli with a resigned smile, "for the cruise ship operators."

In Dubrovnik, Croatia, cruise ship passengers only spend an average of 24 euros per day compared to an average of 160 euros per day spent by other visitors. The city is suffering more than most from the onslaught of the tourists. Since its picturesque Old Town became the backdrop for the fantasy saga "Game of Thrones," the number of visitors has risen dramatically. Each year, 800,000 people arrive on cruise ships alone.

Dubrovnik has 42,000 inhabitants -- and most of them prefer to stay home when the cruise ships arrive. But because not only the residents, but also the medieval city structures themselves, are suffering, the number of visitors is to be reduced to 8,000 people per day. Otherwise, UNESCO has threatened to strip the city of its status as a World Heritage site.

"A new approach is now being considered -- one that moves away from the one-sided thinking about growth that has characterized tourism policy in most cities so far," says urban planner Johannes Novy, who is currently researching urban development and tourism at London's Westminster University. He says that for too long, the question was: How do we lure more tourists to a city? "It was not about other goals, including the question of how one could work to counter the negative consequences." Novy says that tourism itself isn't always the problem, but certain aspects of it -- "for example, the party tourism that is pervasive in many cities, or the longtime unrestrained boom in holiday rentals."

Increasingly, he says, those in positions of responsibility have begun trying to combat the "growing pains" associated with the travel boom, as Novy calls it. They want to redirect the streams of tourists, as officials in Rome are trying to do, or even to limit them, as Dubrovnik is doing. Barcelona is no longer approving new hotels, Paris has strictly regulated Airbnb and other apartment-rental platforms and Palma de Mallorca has even completely banned the renting of holiday apartments on the platform. But no other city is taking measures as rigorously as Amsterdam.

The Last Resort

But still they exist, the cities and regions that welcome the tourists who are no longer as welcome elsewhere, where nobody gets worked up about constant parties and binge drinking rituals.

Daniel Stefanov is standing on a podium, squeezed between a street and the beach, where he watches the crowd as it sinks into the foam. His helpers have placed two foam cannons by the dance floor at the Megapark Dolphin, a giant, insane party venue that Stefanov has created with his business partners at Golden Sands, Bulgaria. From one cannon, the foam is spraying like raw cake batter onto the partying vacationers, while fine soap clouds are raining out of the other one. The crowd, standing in knee-deep foam, cheers.

Stefanov has come one step closer to fulfilling his goal: that of turning Golden Sands into a regular destination for partying German tourists, an alternative to El Arenal and Playa de Palma.

Fifteen years ago, Stefanov and his partner Sava Daritkov, 44, opened the outdoor nightclub Megapark Dolphin in Slatni Pjasazi, a vacation spot on the Black Sea. The club is filled with swimming pools and an adjacent dance floor. Eight years ago, they added the "partystadl," or "party city," where German pop music is played and a half-liter of beer costs the equivalent of 2 euros.

Stefanov and Daritkov have invested a lot into their dream. They imported hefeweizen wheat beer from Germany and hired singers who otherwise performed at establishments in Mallorca that are popular among German party tourists. And they began organizing foam parties. For 20 euros cover, visitors can drink the cocktails of their choice for an hour and get covered in foam, every Tuesday and Saturday.

This season has proven more successful than any that has come before. First came the wave of high-school graduates coming from Germany in the early summer. They were followed by football and bowling clubs. Their guests tend to be men and women in their early and mid-20s who only need three things for a successful vacation: "sun, sand and suds." The trend is likely to continue until late September, Daritkov says. And there is one more thing he really wants to say: "We're pleased about all the visitors."

It's a sentence that has taken on a new meaning in an age when tourists partying to excess with buckets of cheap sangria are no longer welcome in many places. Mallorca no longer wants to be a party island and has even banned nighttime binge drinking and sex on the beach. Golden Sands, the message seems to be, isn't only cheap, but the party isn't over.

Niklas, Marvin and Marcel are standing at the bar at Megapark Dolphin holding a glass of vodka with peach, wearing bright green vests with the motto of their previous trip, an excursion last year to Mallorca: "Malle 2017. Buckets for everyone." They were there with about a dozen friends. The new rules on Mallorca, says Niklas, a 24-year-old car mechatronics technician, are the reason they decided to come to Bulgaria. He says they had witnessed in El Arenal how Spanish police arrived with three cars when a bucket of sangria was spotted on the beach despite the ban. They thought the reaction was a bit over the top.

The situation is altogether different at Golden Sands. There are no residents here to complain about the ruckus.

          Commenti su Barmasse sulle limitazioni al Monte Bianco: un attacco ai valori dell’alpinismo di Luca Bergmann      Cache   Translate Page      
Sono d’accordo in generale con Hervé anche se, purtroppo per svariati motivi, il caso particolare è molto più complicato. Vietare l’accesso ad una montagna è una decisione che ha dell’incredibile oltreché fornire un importante precedente; l’amarezza che provo non viene dalla chiusura della via francese al monte bianco, ma viene dalla paura che la cosa si ripeterà su altre frequentate cime dove gli incidenti stanno crescendo (o fanno più notizia): pensiamo alla punta Gnifetti, Cervino, Breithorn, Granparadiso, Monviso, Großglockner.... Tutte cime ambiziose perché rappresentano qualcosa nell’immaginario collettivo: -Gnifetti: ah il rifugio più alto d’europa -Cervino: ahhhh il Cervino!!!! -Breithorn: il più facile -Granparadiso: l’unico 4000 tutto italiano -Monviso: lo si vede da 400 km di distanza!! -Großglockner: la più alta dell’Austria e via dicendo Purtroppo sempre più persone prendono l’alpinismo come uno sport fine a se stesso, lo assimilano al correre 20 minuti al giorno o fare 20 km in bici. La scalata di una montagna diventa una medaglia (o peggio ancora un selfie) di cui vantarsi. Il Bianco è una medaglia troppo ghiotta da lasciarsi scappare sopratutto con i suoi (soli) 1000 m di dislivello dal Dome!!! Non è, per caso, che il problema lo hanno creato proprio i francesi??? Forse era meglio non costruirlo quel ca...spita di rifugio così vicino alla vetta. Hanno voluto trasformare l’alpinismo in un bussinnes più ancora di quello che già era diventato e il risultato non ha tardato a farsi sentire. Il discorso potrebbe proseguire ore…… L’alpinismo è ben altro: è voglia di organizzarsi le tappe, sceglire cosa mettere nello zaino (e magari scoprire tragicamente che hai dimenticato i ramponi), non dormire niente per l’agitazione la notte prima per della scalata anche se stai andando sul Granparadiso, arrivare a casa stravolto pensando “ma chi me lo ha fatto fare” e dopo una settimana essere nelle stesse identiche condizioni….ed è proprio per questi motivi che rifarei cento volte la via italiana dal Gonella piuttosto che quella ragliata della via francese (scusatemi ma un po’ di nazionalismo ci voleva!!!). Forza ragazzi teniamo duro: se chiudono un sentiero, basta spostarsi un po’ più in la per aprirne un altro! Ciaooooo

Knowledge and Influence of Predatory Journals in Dermatology: A Pan-Austrian Survey.

Acta Derm Venereol. 2018 Sep 12;:

Abstract
The aim of this study was to assess the knowledge and influence of predatory journals in the field of dermatology in Austria. A total of 286 physicians (50.5% men) completed a questionnaire. The vast majority of subjects read scientific articles (n = 281, 98.3%) and took them into consideration in their clinical decision-making (n = 271, 98.5% of participants that regularly read scientific literature). Open access was known by 161 (56.3%), predatory journals by 84 (29.4%), and the Beall's list by 19 physicians (6.7%). A total of 117 participants (40.9%) had been challenged by patients with results from the scientific literature, including 9 predatory papers. Participants who knew of predatory journals had a higher level of education as well as scientific experience, and were more familiar with the open-access system (p < 0.001). These results indicate that the majority of dermatologists are not familiar with predatory journals. This is particularly the case for physicians in training and in the early stages of their career.

Герб Австро-Венгерской Империи - Copy (168x100, 44Kb)



Перед посещением апартаментов и музея Сисси все посетители обязаны пройти через лабиринт комнат первого этажа, где собрана необъятная коллекция дворцовой утвари.


В настоящее время в крыле Императорской канцелярии находится помещение с коллекцией императорского серебра. После окончания монархии Габсбургов в 1918 году императорские владения перешли в собственность Австрийской Республики. Часть предметов была распродана, но, к счастью, большинство осталось при дворе. Некоторые из них и сегодня используются для официальных государственных банкетов и обедов. Другие же выставлены на всеобщее обозрение в Зале серебра.

После полной реконструкции и адаптации смежных помещений зал императорского серебра был вновь открыт в 1995 году. Сегодня 7000 изумительных по красоте предметов быта может увидеть каждый посетитель Хофбурга.

Придворная кухня


В первом зале Серебряной Палаты представлена коллекция предметов, бывших в употреблении на придворной кухне. Медные кастрюли, сковороды и формы дают посетителям представление о разнообразии работ, выполнявшихся здесь: чайники, гусятницы и даже прародительницы термопосуды, в крышках которой помещались тлеющие угли, не позволявшие блюдам остывать, - все эти предметы свидетельствуют, что обеспечение питания для двора из 5000 человек было задачей весьма непростой.


Медные формы использовались для приготовления несчетного количества заливных блюд, например, студней и холодцов, а также бисквитных тортов, суфле, карамелей и, конечно, знаменитого венского торта, "Гугельхупф". Разнообразие приспособлений говорит и о высоком мастерстве придворных кондитеров.


В то время медь широко использовалась в кухонном обиходе аристократии и семей среднего класса. Преимуществом меди считалась ее высокая теплопроводность; а огромным недостатком – способность окисляться при соприкосновении с пищей, образуя ядовитые вещества. Именно поэтому изнутри подобная посуда покрывалась слоем олова и регулярно проверялась на наличие повреждений.



Чтобы избежать расхищения посуды, она часто маркировалась двуглавым орлом и буквами, указывающими на принадлежность к императорской кухне либо к императорской кондитерской.

Информация о придворном питании


Правила подачи блюд, их количество, очередность, разнообразие всегда жестко регламентировалось придворным этикетом. В 16 веке императору Фердинанду Первому подавалось около 30 блюд. Количество сервируемых блюд уменьшалось в зависимости от ранга, занимаемого лицом при дворе.

Dining room in Imperial Apartments


Список блюд для фрейлин, относящийся к 17 веку, показывает, что свите императрицы подавалось по 30 блюд в обед и 28 – за ужином. В список входили 2 разных супа, отварная говядина, жаркое (из говядины, телятины, курицы, ягненка или индейки), фрикасе из телятины, кролик, сладкое, салат и овощи в зависимости от сезона.

В 18 веке императрица Мария Терезия часто обедала в своих личных апартаментах. В этом случае ей подавался суп, отварная говядина, основное блюдо из мяса, основное блюдо из птицы, жаркое из мяса и птицы, сладкое и фрукты. Именно Мария Терезия сделала кондитерское отделение частью придворной кухни. До этого момента сладкие блюда обычно закупались у венских кондитеров, что, несомненно, способствовало росту качества сладостей в Вене.

В 19 веке император Йозеф Второй реорганизовал систему придворной кухни. Для снижения расходов он сократил количество сервируемых блюд. На обед стало подаваться 15 блюд, а на ужин – всего лишь 8.

Император Франц Йозеф в 19 и 20 веке на устраиваемых по вечерам гала обедах угощал гостей 13 видами блюд. Сюда входили: закуска, в основном из устриц, суп, пироги, рыба или иное морское блюдо, говядина, птица, жаркое, салат, овощи, сладкое и десерт. Если император обедал в одиночестве, очень часто он ел лишь булочку и пил стакан кефира.

В серии из пяти комнат, в дубовых шкафах, оставшихся со времен монархии, выставлены отдельные предметы из венгерских, богемских и венских сервизов.


Витрины в этом зале сделаны из дуба, они сохранились со времён монархии Габсбургов.

На верхней полке витрины видны характерные бокалы «рёмер», в них подавали только рейнское вино.

Придворное хозяйство отвечало за приготовление пищи, контроль вин, сервировку стола, освещение и обогрев комнат. Его возглавлял Главный Управляющий Имперского Хозяйства или Лорд Стюард. Под его началом находились соответствующие придворные отделения хозяйства: хранилище провизии, кухня, кондитерская, винный погреб, серебряная и столовая палаты, хранилище столового белья, осветительная, а также хранилище дров и угля.



Каждое отделение вело строгий учет средств и ценностей, которые находились в его распоряжении. В списки вносились все произведенные покупки, израсходованный провиант, выданные вина и прочие напитки, фарфоровые сервизы и столовое серебро. Каждый год проводилась полная инвентаризация придворного хозяйства. Специальный служащий контролировал все закупки провизии, столовых сервизов, белья, посуды и свеч. Каждый месяц поставщики предоставляли двору список цен на предлагаемые товары. Часто придворный комитет начинал торговлю, отдавая предпочтение поставщикам с наиболее низкими ценами.



Исторический столовый сервиз, ранее носивший название придворного сервиза, представлен в дальней части витрины у левой стены. Он был изготовлен венской фарфоровой мануфактурой в 1859-1864 годах. В тот период серебряные блюда, использовавшиеся ранее для государственных приемов, вышли из употребления, и их место занял этот сервиз. Основной фон сервиза – белый, изящная золотая кайма из точек и рисунок из двуглавых орлов в черном, красном или золотом цвете служит украшением.








Сервиз представляет интерес с точки зрения техники: рисунок наносился на предмет путем золотой литографии и полихромного процесса; техники, изобретенной в 1855 году. Ручное декорирование, таким образом, вытеснилось рациональным процессом массового производства. Сервиз используется на государственных обедах до сегодняшнего дня и теперь носит название Государственного Сервиза для Приёмов.




В витрине в центре комнаты представлены образцы постельного белья и белья для ванной, использовавшегося императорской семьей.


Белье обычно маркировалось имперской короной. На белье высшего качества корона вышивалась, на прочих изделиях ставилась лишь печать. Полотенца для императорской семьи менялись ежедневно, а постельное белье – 2-3 раза в неделю. Прислуга использовала полотенца по 3 дня и имела право на замену постели раз в 2 недели.




Замечательным экспонатом является английский столовый сервиз Минтонской мануфактуры, подаренный императрицей Элизабет мужу, Францу Йозефу, для его охотничьего домика в Оффензе. Сервиз был изготовлен в 1870 году и украшен яркими животными и растительными мотивами.









Дальнюю часть витрины справа занимают фарфоровые изделия для омовений. Набор для ежедневного туалета обычно включал в себя чашу для использованной воды, кувшин для чистой воды, тазик для умывания, таз для мытья ног, чашу для бритья, подставку для мыла, подставку для зубной щетки, коробочку для расчесок, контейнер для зубного порошка.




Гигиене при дворе уделялось значительное внимание, и подобные наборы были необходимы для ежедневного ухода за телом. Омовения совершались, главным образом, по утрам в спальных комнатах царствующих особ при помощи слуг. Лишь в 1876 году для императрицы Элизабет во дворце была оборудована отдельная ванная комната.









Экспозиция комнаты-ротонды знакомит посетителей с одним из самых значительных сервизов придворной серебряной комнаты. Гран Вермель, представленный здесь, - один из крупнейших сервизов подобного типа в мире.





Техника вермель, золочения серебряных изделий, была изобретена во Франции в 18 веке. Позолота наносилась на серебро или иной драгоценный металл путем огневого золочения. Отсюда и название этого великолепного сервиза – слово «вермель» в переводе с французского означает ярко-красный, алый. Довольно быстро Франция запретила использование подобной техники, так как ювелиры часто слепли из-за используемой в процессе золочения ртути. В наши дни вермель осуществляется при помощи безопасного процесса электролиза.






Сейчас представленный сервиз на 140 персон состоит из 4500 предметов и весит более тонны. Вероятно, изначально он был заказан в 1808 году Евгением Богарне, приемным сыном Наполеона, для миланского двора и рассчитывался на 40 персон. Его украшали гербы Наполеона как короля Италии. После разгрома Наполеона королевство Ломбардии и Венеции было интегрировано в Австрийскую империю, а сервиз перевезен в Вену.







Он пришелся как нельзя более кстати: во время наполеоновских войн все австрийские придворные сервизы из драгоценных металлов были переплавлены в деньги, так что сервизов для официальных мероприятий не осталось.

          Should Antitrust Be Used Against Amazon?, by David Henderson      Cache   Translate Page      

A few days ago, Tyler Cowen over at Marginal Revolution linked to a New York Times piece about antitrust scholar Lina Khan. The item, by David Streitfeld, is titled “Amazon’s Antitrust Antagonist Has a Breakthrough Idea,” NYT, Sept. 7, 2018. Much of the story is fluff although Streitfeld does tell the reader that Ms. Khan’s ideas have the potential to influence decisions by the Federal Trade Commission.

The most valuable thing I got out of it, though, was a link to “Amazon’s Antitrust Paradox,” her long article in the Yale Law Journal. I just finished reading it and my quick thoughts follow.

Nice Survey, With One Glaring Hole

It is very well written. Related to that, Khan gives a nice survey of the evolution of antitrust case law, giving due credit to the Chicago School of the 1960s and 1970s for changing the way federal judges and the antitrust enforcers think about the goals of antitrust law. Consumer welfare has become the major way to judge horizontal integration, vertical integration, aggressively low pricing, and internal growth of a firm.

There is one glaring hole in her exposition and it’s on predatory pricing. She discusses the Standard Oil New Jersey, in which muckraker Ida Tarbell alleged that SONJ was engaging in predatory pricing and does not even mention, in an article containing 464 footnotes, the pathbreaking work of John S. McGee, “Predatory Pricing: The Standard Oil (N.J.) Case,” Journal of Law and Economics, Vol 1 (October 1958), pp. 137-169. This is arguably the most important article in the literature on predatory pricing. Its bottom line, which Khan contradicts without giving evidence: Standard Oil did not engage in predatory pricing. Her’s is not a small omission. Here’s what Khan writes:

The earliest predatory pricing case in America was the government’s antitrust suit against Standard Oil, which reached the Supreme Court in 1911.50 As detailed in Ida Tarbell’s exposé, A History of the Standard Oil Company, Standard Oil routinely slashed prices in order to drive rivals from the market.51 Moreover, it cross-subsidized: Standard Oil charged monopoly prices52 in markets where it faced no competitors; in markets where rivals checked the company’s dominance, it drastically lowered prices in an effort to push them out. In its antitrust case against the company, the government argued that a suite of practices by Standard Oil—including predatory pricing—violated section 2 of the Sherman Act. The Supreme Court ruled for the government and ordered the break-up of the company.53 Subsequent courts cited the decision for establishing that in the quest for monopoly power, “price cutting became perhaps the most effective weapon of the larger corporation.”54

Consumer Welfare Not Congress’s Intent

Khan argues that consumer welfare was not the intent of the Congress that passed the Sherman Act. I agree with her. I’ve always thought Robert Bork was particularly dense on the subject. The work of Thomas DiLorenzo has convinced me that Congress passed the antitrust act, not to help consumers, but to hobble successful competitors.

While she puts little weight on harm to consumers from reining in successful competitors, she is unknowingly ambivalent. Consider these two paragraphs from her article:

This vision [of the initiators of U.S. antitrust policy] encompassed a variety of ends. For one, competition policy would prevent large firms from extracting wealth from producers and consumers in the form of monopoly profits.159 Senator Sherman, for example, described overcharges by monopolists as “extortion which makes the people poor,”160 while Senator Richard Coke referred to them as “robbery.”161 Representative John Heard announced that trusts had “stolen millions from the people,”162 and Congressman Ezra Taylor noted that the beef trust “robs the farmer on the one hand and the consumer on the other.”163In the words of Senator James George, “[t]hey aggregate to themselves great enormous wealth by extortion which makes the people poor.”164

Notably, this focus on wealth transfers was not solely economic. Leading up to the passage of the Sherman Act, price levels in the United States were stable or slowly decreasing.165 If the exclusive concern had been higher prices, then Congress could have focused on those industries where prices were, indeed, high or still rising. The fact that Congress chose to denounce unjust redistribution suggests that something else was at play—namely, that the public was “angered less by the reduction in their wealth than by the way in which the wealth was extracted.”166 In other words, though the harm was being registered through an economic effect—a wealth transfer—the underlying source of the grievance was also political.167

She can’t have it both ways. The first paragraph quoted suggests that the antitrust advocates thought high prices were the problem. The second paragraph suggests that they weren’t. But within that second paragraph, she quotes, while seeming to implicitly agree with, the idea that the large firms extracted wealth from consumers. If the large firms were pricing lower than their competitors, which they were, they can’t extract wealth from consumers; instead they create wealth for consumers.

What About Amazon?

When she moves on to Amazon, she does, admittedly, make me a little nervous about Amazon’s power. She reveals a lot about Amazon’s clever strategies that I had not known.

Could the Stock Market Be That Wrong?

Khan makes a good point about Amazon’s stock value as an indicator of future profits. She writes:

Despite the company’s history of thin returns, investors have zealously backed it: Amazon’s shares trade at over 900 times diluted earnings, making it the most expensive stock in the Standard & Poor’s 500.10

And later:

In the past, the Supreme Court’s analysis has embraced the Efficient Market Hypothesis (EMH), the idea that market prices reflect all available information.397 The Justice Department also acknowledges that market information—for example, the financial terms of an acquisition—may “be informative regarding competitive effects.”398 Applying EMH in this instance overwhelmingly suggests that these platforms are positioned to recoup their losses. Yet bringing a predatory pricing suit against an online platform would be almost impossible to win in light of the recoupment requirement. Strikingly, the market is reflecting a reality that our current laws are unable to detect.399

Touche.

Competition as a Process

Khan advocates that we move away from using consumer welfare to judge antitrust policy and, instead, favor a “competitive process.” She writes:

In order to capture these anticompetitive concerns, we should replace the consumer welfare framework with an approach oriented around preserving a competitive process and market structure.

Yet the original industrial organization economists in the 1940s through 1960s talked about market structure, not competitive process. It was many in the Chicago School, especially Yale Brozen and Harold Demsetz, and many in the Austrian School, particularly Israel Kirzner, who talked about competition as a process. If we want to encourage a competitive process, we need to have the government keep its hands off Amazon but also keep its hands off Apple and book publishers who tried to compete with Amazon but were hammered by the antitrust authorities.

Khan is aware of the Apple case, writing:

In 2012, the DOJ sued the publishers and Apple for colluding to raise e-book prices.249In response to claims that the DOJ was going after the wrong actor—given that it was Amazon’s predatory tactics that drove the publishers and Apple to join forces—the DOJ investigated Amazon’s pricing strategies and found “persuasive evidence lacking” to show that the company had engaged in predatory practices.250

How about this: don’t have the antitrust authorities weigh in to hobble competitive business models that try to compete with Amazon and don’t have it weigh in to hobble Amazon either?

          Polémica por la venta de botellas de cerveza con el rostro de Hitler en Italia      Cache   Translate Page      
La sopresa ha debido de ser mayúscula para todos los que se hayan acercado a los supermercados del norte de Italia donde ahora mismo es posible adquirir una botella de cerveza con la cara de uno de los personajes históricos más despreciables y despreciado de todos los tiempos: Adolf Hitler. Según cuenta el diario suizo «Tribune de Genève», este tipo de objetos con el rostro del líder del nazismo se han puesto a la venta en esa región. En Austria o en Alemania, algo así sería, por ilegal, imposible. Fabio Bogo, dueño de la empresa Vinos Nostálgicos, es el responsable de la puesta a la venta de este tipo de botellas, informa «Tribune de Genève». Para defenderse de las acusaciones que le reprochan su filia por el nazismo, Bogo ha afirmado que no tiene problema en vender botellas con los rostros de otros personajes históricos como Stalin, Lenin o Mussolini. El criterio que le mueve, a juzgar por sus gustos, solo es crear polémica. «No soy nostálgico, solo creo justo que no se puede olvidar el pasado. Hay personalidades controvertidas en todos los campos políticos en todo momento», se ha defendido Bogo, en declaraciones recogidas por «Tribune de Genève». La polémica está servida.

Marcus Ostertag’s S/S 2019 collection, entitled “Muse,” was Studio 54 meets the Kit Kat Klub, show-biz glitterati meets influencer bourgeoisie, and an unapologetic ode to loose-limbed ladies (and accompanying gentlemen) who twirl all night on stardust-coated dance floors. As the 30s were seen thorough the disco-dazzled eyes of the 70s, here the 70s were seen through today’s hungry social media filter. A palette of coral, sunshine yellow, lilac, pink, and multiple blues was punctuated with sequins, tassels and ruffles. There were tiered floor length chiffon frocks with billowy sleeves, rainbow-striped lurex leisure suits, and night-owl over-the-knee tiered fringe boots that would make the most somber occasion sashay into debauchery. And for the guys, an assortment of printed silk suiting, cashmere or broderie anglaise hoodies and unlined trenches in cornflower blue Guipure lace.

After his NYFW show, the German-born designer spoke to FashionUnited backstage about the importance of showing his collection in the U.S.

It’s your 6th season showing at NYFW and you also show in Berlin. Why those 2 cities?

Berlin is my hometown and I have a lot of fans there, a huge crowd of press show up to see my collection. Then we add more outfits and show the collection here because New York is international. Press from Japan, from China, everyone comes here, whereas in Berlin it’s just the German, Swiss, Austrian press, and that’s not enough for my collection.

#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

How has showing in NYC affected your business?

We doubled our business in Europe as a result––it’s crazy!

What are the similarities between Berlin and NYC and how does that translate into the fashion?

Berlin is like New York in the 70s. Wild, crazy, openminded.

Do you feel any pressure to expand your retail presence here in the states?

That wasn’t my first intention when I started to show here. I think New York has just the perfect position in the show calendar, then we can be at the fairs in Milan, in Paris. We have to see if we find the right agent for us, because I’m kind of a family guy, I need the right person for sales here and so far I didn’t find them, but maybe in the future. We’re opening the online shop now to the U.S.

Many smaller designers––even larger ones––struggle to establish an entirely Made in U.S.A. business, but you manufacture entirely in Germany. How do you manage it?

I have two lovely production companies, one for knitwear, one for tailoring, and I know all the people, all the seamstresses, and they just do a fantastic job. They love to work with us because we provide good conditions, we pay German rates, we have minimal waste which is one of the most sustainable things we’re doing. It’s just a family atmosphere that I have going on in my company.

Your dresses are very glamorous. Is there one female on the planet you would love to get a call from requesting a dress?

          Isokon Flats in London, England      Cache   Translate Page      

Isokon Apartments.

Built in 1934 in London’s affluent Belsize Park, the Isokon apartments were not only an uncompromising exercise in architectural modernism but also an experiment in a new type of living.

The block was commissioned by Jack and Molly Pritchard, who wanted a new type of housing free of bourgeois norms, in order to foster an egalitarian community appropriate for a new world. Architect Wells Coates used reinforced concrete for his design (the first time the material had been used in a British domestic building), setting the structure radically apart from the surrounding brick and stone Edwardian architecture. The choice of material was a reflection of the Pritchards’ social vision, connotative as it was with Continental mass social housing.

The block’s name came from Coates’ use of both isometric perspective and constructivist aesthetics. Its 32 flats were whitewashed and cement-rendered, with communal balconies to encourage social interaction and exchange. The vision was strictly egalitarian and class-less. An Isobar restaurant on the top floor would supply meals to each apartment via dumb waiters, freeing the inhabitants to socialize, think, discuss, and work.

Isokon became a hub for modernist thought and design in London. Famous designers and teachers from the Bauhaus school in Germany, including architect Walter Gropius and designer Lazslo Moholy-Magy, sought refuge there as the Nazi regime came to power. Fellow Bauhaus teacher Marcel Breuer designed modernist furniture for the flats, using new industrial materials such as plywood. Thinkers, writers, artists, and intellectuals all came and went during this period.

It was this transitory, international nature that lent itself so readily to spying, and it is estimated that between the 1930s and 1960s, some 30 Soviet agents lived at Isokon. Europe’s liberal intelligentsia were engaged in a war of ideas with the rising tide of fascism, and many Isokon residents looked towars the Soviet Union to satisfy their ideal of pacifism and socialism. Pritchard himself had embraced communism whilst studying at Cambridge University.

An Austrian Isokon resident, Arnold Deutsch, was revealed to be a Soviet spy, and recruited the famous "Cambridge Five" spy ring, often from a bench in nearby Regent’s Park. The building’s opening was photographed by Edith Tudor Hart, herself a Soviet agent. 

The novelist Agatha Christie moved into Isokon in 1941 with her husband, archaeologist Max Mallowan, when her Cornish house was requisitioned by the army and her London property too exposed to bombing. It has been postulated that much of the inspiration for her novels of spying and intrigue during this period came from her experiences at Isokon.

The block fell into disrepair in the late 20th century, before being restored as private residences. Today the former garage is a gallery telling the story of Isokon, including its spying connections. The gallery also preserves two original rooms.


          The Ruling Class-- Republicans AND Democrats      Cache   Translate Page      

Today, Andrew Cuomo is expected to win a resounding primary victory in New York. Think about that next time you smear at Republicans who are so enamored of Señor Trumpanzee and who-- with help from the Kremlin-- saddled our country with him. Overall, Cuomo probably isn't as bad as Trump; but when it comes to corruption... the two are in the same category of horrible.

On Tuesday, Aida Chavez reported on another aspect of Cuomo-- his manipulation of Republicans and the Republican wing of the Democratic Party-- in New York, the IDC-- to control the state's legislative process and keep the progressive agenda off his desk. He is notorious for having enabled the IDC, the breakaway group of state Senate Democrats who caucused with the Republican minority to give them control of the chamber in a Democratic state. He finally dissolved the alliance after Cynthia Nixon began her primary campaign against him. "But," wrote Chavez, "his choice to hire numerous staff from across the aisle has gone largely unexamined. Cuomo has repeatedly touted his ability to work across party lines, and judging by the number of Republicans he’s hired for key positions in his administration, he’s right.
“Governor Cuomo slashed school funding in order to pay for tax cuts for the wealthy, and when you look at his staff, you hardly have to wonder why,” Nixon campaign spokesperson Lauren Hitt said in an email to The Intercept. “The Governor has surrounded himself with former top Republican staffers because, at his core, he simply is not a progressive. He’s allowed our subways and other infrastructure to rot, he’s sent out Donald Trump style campaign mailers to divide New Yorkers along religious lines, and-- working with the IDC-- he’s blocked critical progressive legislation like Medicare for All.”
Democratic voters don't know what to make of this, especially with familiar big names from corporatist status quo Democrats like Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand backing him.

And, tragically, Cuomo and New York aren't the only blue states where these kinds of shenanigans go on to thwart the progressive vision. When Kevin de León passed a Medicare-for-All type bill in the state Senate last year, Governor Brown call his lackey, Assembly Speaker, Anthony Rendon, and said he doesn't want to see that bill landing on his desk. He never did. California has a Democratic governor and an overwhelmingly Democratic legislature. The Assembly has 80 members-- 55 Democrats and 25 Republicans. The state Senate has 40 members-- 26 Democrats and 14 Republicans. Sounds like a dream come true, right? But California is plagued with corrupt corporate Democrats in the legislature and what is called the "mod squad," every bit as bad as New York's IDC. Corrupt right-of-center fake Democrats like Adam Gray (Merced), Jim Cooper (Elk Grove), Rudy Salas (Bakersfield), Mike Gipson (Carson), Tony Thurmond (Richmond), Henry Perea (Fresno) and Tom Daly (Anaheim). They are the equivalent of the New Dems in national politics. And corporations-- like Chevron-- and wealthy Republicans finance them, just the way wealthy Republicans have been financing conservative Democrats against progressives in congressional primaries this cycle.

Gordon Getty and Gavin 

A few years ago-- the last time Gavin Newsom was running for governor-- he called a meeting of Los Angeles political bloggers. He was slick and effective-- and he knew more about every topic that was brought up than anyone in the room. I would say that everyone in the room came away a Newsom supporter but one... me. To me he was an entitled corporate shill, a smart one by a venal one. A few days ago, the L.A. Times did an exhaustive follow-the-money piece on Newsom, How eight elite San Francisco families funded Gavin Newsom’s political ascent. They should have run it during the primary season, not now when we're stuck with no choice but to vote for him (or not vote). "Gavin Newsom," wrote the Times' team, "wasn’t born rich, but he was born connected-- and those alliances have paid handsome dividends throughout his career. A coterie of San Francisco’s wealthiest families has backed him at every step of his political rise, which in November could lead next to his election as governor of California. San Francisco society’s 'first families'-- whose names grace museum galleries, charity ball invitations and hospital wards-- settled on Newsom, 50, as their favored candidate two decades ago, said Willie Brown, former state Assembly speaker and former mayor of the city. 'He came from their world, and that’s why they embraced him without hesitancy and over and above everybody else,' said Brown, who is a mentor to Newsom. 'They didn’t need to interview him. They knew what he stood for.'” Like, for example, the billionaire Getty family. "Newsom was at the center of the social scene led by the younger generation of San Francisco’s wealthy families. Those relationships would form the foundation of his life in politics. 'These kids had all grown up together, or played sports or gone to school together or later dated,' said Catherine Bigelow, a longtime San Francisco society writer."

A Times review of campaign finance records identified eight of San Francisco’s best-known families as being among Newsom’s most loyal and long-term contributors. Among those patrons are the Gettys, the Pritzkers and the Fishers, whose families made their respective fortunes in oil, hotels and fashion. They first backed him when he was a restaurateur and winery owner running for a seat on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors in 1998, and have continued their support through the governor’s race.

They are not Newsom’s largest donors: The families in total have given about $2 million of the $61 million that donors have contributed to his campaigns and independent committees backing those bids. But they gave while he was a relative unknown, providing crucial support to a political newcomer in the years before his campaign accounts piled high with cash from labor unions, Hollywood honchos, tech billionaires and donors up and down the state.

Now the families appear poised to see their investments pay off.

These donors are mostly liberal, inspired by Newsom’s history as an early supporter of progressive causes, including same-sex marriage as San Francisco mayor in 2004. But some are Republicans, including President Trump’s new ambassador to Austria, who are drawn by Newsom’s background as a small businessman.

...Gordon and Ann Getty viewed him as a son, according to interviews the couple gave to the San Francisco Chronicle and W Magazine, and they provided him with experiences his parents could not afford, including an African safari when he was a teen, Newsom said in an earlier interview with The Times.

“It all goes back to the Gettys as far as Gavin is concerned,” said Jerry Roberts, former managing editor of the San Francisco Chronicle and an expert on Bay Area politics.

In addition to helping fund Newsom’s early business ventures, the family has been a mainstay as he pursued his political ambitions. Eighteen Gettys-- including Gordon, Ann and actor Balthazar Getty-- have collectively donated more than a half-million dollars to Newsom’s nine campaigns, starting with a total of $750 to his 1998 campaign for supervisor. Members of the family have spent more than $362,000 supporting his current gubernatorial bid.
Others who have bankrolled Newsom right from the beginning include Doris Fisher, the billionaire founder of the Gap, George Marcus, billionaire founder of Marcus & Millichap, one of the largest real estate companies in the country, the Pritzker family, descendants of the founders of the Hyatt Hotel chain and the Swig family, which owns the iconic Fairmont Hotel on Nob Hill (now a worldwide chain).


Newsom defeated an actual progressive, Supervisor Matt Gonzalez, to win the mayoralty. Newsom grabbed onto safe, showy social issues to try to claim progressivism-- like backing marriage equality. It worked.
“These are families that have been around for a long time. They’ve been very dedicated to supporting culture, supporting social causes and also putting their money where their mouths are, and keeping their businesses in San Francisco through the good times and the bad times,” Swig said.“There are guys in Washington who make fun of San Francisco values, but really San Francisco values are those that find their core in the families that have been around 75 to 150 years, who have supported everything… good about San Francisco-- social, political and business. And Gavin recognizes that, appreciates that and respects that.”

Susie Tompkins Buell, the co-founder of clothing brand Esprit and outdoor retailer North Face, remembered Newsom as a young man.

“He was the boy about town. Everybody wanted to date him,” she said, recalling that one of her daughters was in a relationship with Newsom in the 1990s. “He was the smartest, the best-looking. He went through a cocky stage, and then an arrogant stage. Now he’s in a total serving stage. He paid his dues, I’ll tell you.”

Tompkins Buell said that while she always believed Newsom was charismatic and bright, she watched him mature as an elected official, husband and father.

“I’ve known him socially for a long time, but then when he was mayor, I observed a very evolving person as he handled his problems and grew into his job,” she said.

Tompkins Buell and her family have contributed more than $110,000 to Newsom’s political endeavors over the years, appreciative of his environmental and social policies, such as his efforts to redirect the city’s cash payments to San Francisco’s homeless to housing and services.

“I’ve watched him closely and I was very, very impressed by the quality of his visceral understanding of the problems we have,” she said.

Tompkins Buell is a confidante of Hillary Clinton who has spent millions of dollars backing Democratic candidates and causes. But Newsom’s support among San Francisco’s elite crosses party lines.

“We’re one of the few long-term, old-school Republican families in the city. This says a lot about Gavin, that he gets our votes, too, because we’re looking at 80 years of Republicanism,” said filmmaker Todd Traina, son of the late shipping magnate John Traina and philanthropist Dede Buchanan Wilsey. His brother Trevor, also a Newsom donor, is Trump’s ambassador to Austria.

Altogether, 10 members of the Traina family have given more than a quarter-million dollars to Newsom’s campaigns.

A blended family of Democrats and Republicans-- who come together to fund Gavin Newsom.

“We all separately backed him and we never internally talked about it,” Traina said, noting that he appreciated Newsom adding a businessman’s perspective to the county Board of Supervisors. “It wasn’t that we said we were making a family decision. It was more that we just all agreed that we liked him and we liked what he stood for.”

He added that his ties to Newsom go back to their time as teenagers, when Newsom attended Redwood High School in Marin County and Traina attended University High School in San Francisco.

“We were sports rivals and we had the same group of friends, and he just really had a winning personality and was very likable,” Traina said. “He was very similar to the way he is now-- spunky, bright, charming, he lit up a room. I wouldn’t have known at the time he had a definite interest in politics, but he has always had the same personality.”

The Traina family roots go back to shipping magnate John Traina, who was married to Dede Buchanan and then romance novelist Danielle Steel. Buchanan, whose great-grandfather founded Dow Chemical, later married real estate magnate Alfred Wilsey. She remains a major philanthropic force in the city, notably raising more than $200 million to rebuild the earthquake-damaged De Young Museum.

Richard Guggenhime, a prominent San Francisco attorney who provides financial advice to wealthy families, has spent four decades working for various civic boards. Currently on the city’s airport commission, a position to which Newsom first appointed him, Guggenhime has given Newsom more than $30,000 in his bid to become governor. In 1998, his wife, Judy, now chairwoman of the San Francisco General Hospital foundation board, gave Newsom $250 to help kickstart his supervisor campaign.

Richard Guggenhime did not respond to a request for comment.

Roberts, the Chronicle’s former managing editor, said the role of San Francisco’s most prominent families in public life has shifted over the years. They have largely stopped seeking public seats, but still try to control the levers of power.

The longtime support for Newsom underscores that point.

“They phased out of any public visibility. But behind the scenes, they were still the ruling class,” Roberts said.

          Rare antique Turkoman Tekke gilt silver pendant with turquoise, turquoise necklace, OOAK, Unique, bold by beadartaustria      Cache   Translate Page      

688.00 EUR

BEADART-AUSTRIA

I have used an antique Turkoman Tekke gilt silver pendant (800 silver ?) to create this necklace. the pendant is insofar rare as it is set with turquoise stones and not carnelian.
To match the color of the stones in the pendant I have used old stabilized but not color treated turquoise from the Hubei province in China. Sterling silver beads from a rosary from the 1800s, sterling clasp

I have made a few repairs to the pendant: added tiny old silver beads and a turquoise rondelle to the top dangles and two little silver breast pendants to the side dangles. The chains are original but the dangles were missing. bottom fish dangles are all original.
Very interesting back design on the pendant!

Pendant length 24 cm, with 4 cm
necklace length 52 cm

it's really good if you know and like a lot of European actors, they tend to do nudity and if it's frontal nudity, even better. Really like Austrian actor Florian Teichtmeister who is mainly a theater actor, he probably did onstage nudity but i was never able to find anything on the net and the only nude thing so far was really poor, partial rear in TV movie Eine Handvoll Briefe, hope another actor from Austria will follow Florian soon, Stefan Pohl
