          Làm giàu cho Việt cộng      Cache   Translate Page      
VNCH- Ngọc Trương (Danlambao) Cách đây vài hôm, có hai người bạn cũ từ xa ghé thăm. Chuyện bạn bè dẫn đến chuyện công tác từ thiện tại Việt Nam. Tôi có đề cập đến bài: “Làm từ thiện trên mănh đất tạm dung” của tác giả Mai Thanh Truyết. Người bạn thứ nhất từng là nhân viên nhân viên kế toán cho công ty Anh tại Singapore, đã về hưu. Anh thứ hai, nhân viên ngân hàng ở Luxembourg. Với kiến thức và kinh nghiệm chuyên môn trong nghề, hai anh giải thích và cho biết ý nghĩa đằng sau của việc "từ thiện".

Hai anh ngẫu nhiên, luân phiên bổ túc giúp cho tôi, một khán/thính giả rất dốt nát về lãnh vực tài chánh, lờ mờ hiểu ở mức sơ đẳng nhất. Dù biết sẽ có ít nhiều phản ứng từ bạn đọc, như :"Nói không có căn cứ, bằng chứng..." hoặc là "Vơ đũa cả nắm"... Nhưng thông tin cần được chia sẻ và soi sáng từ phía bạn đọc để mọi người cùng nhau hiểu rõ vấn đề. 

Chúng tôi cố gắng đơn giản hoá việc giải thích về luân lưu tiền mặt (hay luân lưu hiện kim- cash flow) trong hoạt động từ thiện giả dối của CS Việt Nam, kinh doanh, tẩu tán tiền có lợi cho chúng. 


Dân bán drug, trồng cỏ (weed) mua bán hoàn toàn bằng tiền mặt, dễ dàng và tránh bị cảnh sát theo dõi. Tiền lời tích tụ càng nhiều cần được bạch hóa hay rửa tiền (blanchiment d'argent/money laundering) để biến thành tiền hợp pháp. 



Theo như sơ đồ trên, tiền bất lương từ nhiều nguồn khác nhau tập trung về cho Việt cộng, bọn CS sẽ chuyển tiền mặt vào ngân hàng có mối làm ăn lâu dài và chịu chi phối của CS (đặc biệt là Tàu cộng) như HSBC, hoặc Bank of China. 

Tiền vào ngân hàng được biến thành hợp pháp, đem ra đầu tư vào bất động sản (nhà, đất đai, nông trại...) tại bản xứ (thí dụ như Mỹ, Pháp, Úc...), kể cả đem xây chùa cho sư sải cộng sản làm nơi trú ẩn, hoạt động lung lạc dân Việt hải ngoại. 

Hòa thượng XYZ, tức "Thích búa liềm" thực ra chính là "đồng chí thượng tá" Nguyễn ABC, thuộc Vụ hải ngoại, Bộ công an Việt cộng, vân vân. "Thích búa liềm" từng học đạo 3 năm với Thích Trí Quang (nhà chuyên môn tuyệt thực nhiều năm, chỉ uống sâm Đại Hàn chánh gốc để sống). 


Tiền cúng dường tam bảo hải ngoại (Pháp, Đức, Mỹ, Úc...) để xây chùa, dựng tượng bản xứ phục vụ cộng đồng, một phần thanh toán tiền xây cất, vật dụng, các đồ trang trí và nhân công. Phần còn dư, xây xài trong chùa, và phần ít được nói tới, hay không bao giờ nói tới - tiền mặt (đô la) giao thẳng cho tòa đại sứ VC sở tại, chuyển vào ngân hàng VC, CS có phương tiện tiền bạc cho công tác tuyên truyền, gián điệp. 

Bảo trợ hội chợ, ca nhạc hội do tòa đại sứ VC ủng hộ, giúp bảo lãnh qua đám cưới giả các cán bộ an ninh nằm vùng. Mở hay mua các báo tiếng Việt, đài truyền hình Việt địa phương, vận động đưa cán bộ CS ra tranh cử các tổ chức của cộng đồng Việt Nam... 

Cũng phải nói đến tiền hoàn toàn hợp pháp do đồng bào hải ngoại gởi về cho gia đình, hoặc cho các chương trình cứu trợ, từ thiện trong nước, hoặc xây chùa, nhà thờ mới, sửa chữa am cũ, lăng cỗ... 

Tổng số hàng năm từ 10 đến 13 tỷ USD. Của không vốn, trên trời rớt xuống cúng cho đảng CS và bọn cầm quyền Hà nội! 

Nói theo kiểu VC: Trên cả uyệt vời! 

Gián tiếp, chúng ta nuôi nấng VC ngày thêm vững mạnh. 

Tiền sạch còn được dùng tái đầu tư off-shore, qua các ngân hàng hải ngoại xa như vùng Caribbean: Bahamas, Trinidad Tobego, Cuba, Jamaica, Barbados, Panama... (nghe quen quá phải không bạn, du lịch các xứ nầy rẽ chán). 

Tháng tư năm 2016, xảy ra vụ tai tiếng gọi là Panama papers, lộ hồ sơ trốn thuế và các trương mục bí mật hải ngoại của nhiều tên tuổi lớn thế giới, liên quan cả Putin Tổng thống Nga, Thủ tướng Iceland Sigmundur Davíð Gunnlaugsson phải từ chức, chưa kể có tên của 7 uỷ viên Bộ chính trị CS Trung cộng đương nhiệm hoặc đã về hưu. 

Li Xiaolin con gái của cựu Thủ tướng TC Lý Bằng, Hu Dehua con trai của Thủ tướng Hồ diệu Bang, Deng Jiagui anh em rể của Tập Cận Bình. 

Toàn là tai to mặt lớn, đầy dẫy "đạo đức cách mạng" kiểu CS, nhưng thích giàu có sung sướng kiểu tư bản. 

Như vậy, bạn và tôi đã hiểu thêm một chút tại sao thủ tướng CSNguyễn xuân Phúc, Bộ trưởng y tế Nguyễn Thị Kim Tiến có tiền cho mấy đứa con trai, hay Nguyễn Lê Huỳnh Trúc con gái của thượng tướng CS Nguyễn Trọng Nghĩa, Phó chủ nhiệm Tổng cục Chính trị quân đội, cầm đầu bọn 47 (xem bài DLB - Chiến Trường Internet Và Lực Lượng 47) có tiền du học, hay "du học trốn" tại Mỹ, hoặc các xứ tử bản hạng nặng khác. 


Làm sao tiền rửa sạch (bạch hoá hợp pháp) 

Ông ABC, để dành tiền làm nail hơn 20 năm hầu về VN sống lúc tuổi già. ABC rất khôn ngoan biết phải "kiếm một thằng cán bộ nào đó bao che, cho an toàn khi về ở VN". 

Nhờ quen biết, ông ABC liên lạc làm ăn với một anh "người ngoài ấy", hùn vốn mở tiệm mua bán vật liệu xây cất ở Ohio. Bán sắt thép, xi măng, gỗ và các vật liệu xây cất nhà, cả dây điện, công tắc đèn. 

Thầy "Thích sao vàng" muốn xây kiểng chùa phục vụ bá tánh, cộng đồng VN ở xứ người, thầy quyên được 800 ngàn đô la (chỉ là con số thí dụ) tiền mặt. 

“Thích sao vàng” cất 100 ngàn tiền mặt làm của "chùa", nhưng là của riêng cho thầy, không phải là “của chùa” theo nghĩa thông thường! 

Nộp 700 ngàn vào ngân hàng có uy tín như Bank of America ở Mỹ, Royal bank of Canada (thì ở Canada chớ đâu nữa), hay Crédit Agricole của Pháp, ngoan ngoãn như một công dân tốt, lương thiện. 

Thầy nhờ công ty của ông ABC lo mọi việc xây cất, xin giấy phép. Tổng cộng chi phí xây chùa thiệt ngon chỉ tới 500 ngàn đô la (cũng là con số thí dụ). 

Còn lại 200 ngàn (thầy sực mất 100 ngàn tiền mặt rồi): 

1/ Giao cho tòa lãnh sự VC sở tại, coi như đóng góp cho "quê hương", lãnh sự VC sẽ dùng hành lý ngoại giao (valise diplomatique/ diplomatic bag) gởi đi HSBC ở Hồng Kông và cất ở đó, hoặc từ HSBC sẽ nhập vào trương mục của "anh" Nguyễn Xuân Phúc, hay "anh" Nguyễn Phú Trọng, tại Bahamas, Cuba... 

Con cháu mấy "anh cấp trên" có tiền ăn học ở Mỹ, ở Đức, Úc, mua nhà rộng, nhà nghỉ mát, cottage, bao các em tóc vàng ăn chơi thâu đêm, hay sắm xe Rolls-Royce đời mới đi lại cho đỡ mệt, tất cả do tiền "nhân dân ta ở nước ngoài" đổ mồ hôi đóng góp. 

Tuyệt vời! 

Hành lý ngoại giao, hoàn toàn miễn khám xét 
miễn sao có quốc hiệu và thường có nhân viên ngoại giao đi kèm. 

Có thể là 1 va ly, có thể là một container, thùng gỗ… 

2/ Cách thứ hai, công ty của ông ABC, viết hoá đơn 700 ngàn đô la trọn vẹn cho công tác xây chùa. 

“Thích sao vàng” ký cheque trả 700 ngàn cho ABC. 

Tiền thặng dư 200 ngàn, ABC ký trả 100 ngàn cho tiệm bán bàn ghế, tượng đồng, tượng Phật, trống, nhang đèn, bồn sứ, hoa sen vàng..., còn 100 ngàn ông ABC trả lương cho chính ông và các nhân viên, bảo hiểm, đóng tiền thất nghiệp, thuế buôn bán. Hoàn toàn hợp lệ. Dĩ nhiên phải có lời nhiều. 

Tiệm bán bàn ghế nói trên, do ông DEF làm chủ, ông cũng có quan hệ "tốt đẹp" với "mấy ảnh" ở tòa đại sứ VC, cũng như Ban ngoại thương ở Hà nội. 

Nói thẳng ra cả hai ABC, DEF đều là bọn làm ăn buôn bán với CS, miễn sao có lợi cho cá nhân và kiếm nhiều tiền, về VN an hưởng tuổi già, hay về VN "giải trí" hàng năm. Chúng không ngần ngại rửa tiền cho VC. 

Đến đây, hy vọng bạn đọc nhìn thấy tại sao phải cẩn thận trong việc từ thiện, cứu trợ, xây chùa ở Việt Nam. Hoặc cả việc xây chùa ở các quốc gia nơi bạn đọc đang sinh sống. Trước khi bạn trao một số tiền dù nhỏ với tinh thần "của ít lòng nhiều", nên biết rõ số tiền bạn giúp sẽ tới tay ai, sẽ đi về đâu. 

Ai là người hưởng lợi từ tấm lòng nhân ái của bạn? 

Dĩ nhiên không phải nhìn đâu cũng với cặp mắt nghi kỵ, nhìn đâu cũng thay dối trá của CS, không phải hòa thượng, thầy tu nào cũng là tay sai CS. 

Xây dựng chùa chiền, nhà thờ cho cộng đồng Việt Nam ở mỗi địa phương, hay việc tương tế, cứu trợ không phải tất cả đều do CS giật dây. 

Khi nào nên giúp, khi nào không nên giúp. Khi nào đáng tin, khi nào không đáng tin. Không phải dễ. 

Câu trả lời do chính bạn.

          Hurricane Hell: Here Are 5 of the Most Recent Devastating Storms Linked to Climate Change      Cache   Translate Page      
The new normal is frightening.

Only two weeks after the government of Puerto Rico raised the official death toll from Hurricane Maria from 64 to 2,975—making it the deadliest hurricane to occur last year—North and South Carolina residents are evacuating coastal areas in preparation for Hurricane Florence, which is expected to deliver winds of 130 miles per hour and be the worst hurricane to hit the Carolinas since the 1980s. Hurricanes have been pounding the southeastern U.S. for centuries, but in the era of climate change, they are becoming more frequent and more devastating.

Meteorologists are seeing an increase in the what is known as “rapid intensification,” meaning that a storm’s maximum sustained winds increase by at least 35 mph within a 24-hour period. According to data from the National Hurricane Center, there were, on average, ten cases of rapid intensification per year between 1982 and 1994—whereas between 2005 and 2017, 20 cases per year was the average. In 2017, the National Hurricane Center reported 40 cases of rapid intensification.

Meteorologists have five separate categories for hurricanes, with Category 1 being the least severe and Category 5 being the most severe. Florence appears to be reaching the Carolinas as a Category 4, but it could intensify to Category 5. And when rapid intensification—a phenomenon encouraged by climate change—occurs and a hurricane goes from Category 1 to Category 4 or 5 in less than 24 hours, there is little time to prepare.  

Here are five of the most devastating hurricanes that occurred in recent years.

1. Hurricane Katrina

In August 2015, Hurricane Katrina originated in the Bahamas before making its way to the U.S. A hurricane varies in intensity, and at its worst, Katrina became a Category 5 storm. The National Hurricane Center attributed a total of 1836 deaths to Katrina, with up to 1577 deaths in Louisiana—and the flooding was so severe in New Orleans that 80% of the city was under water.

Veteran reporter Mark Schleifstein, who covered Katrina for the New Orleans Times-Picayune, witnessed Katrina first hand and has some grim advice for residents of the Carolinas who are refusing to evacuate for Hurricane Florence: “write your Social Security number on your arm, so officials can identify your body.”

2. Hurricane Harvey

2017 was a terrible year for hurricanes, and one of the worst was Hurricane Harvey—which affected parts of Latin America (including Nicaragua and Honduras) but was especially devastating around the Texas Gulf Coast. Of the 108 deaths caused by Harvey in late August/early September 2017, 103 were in Texas. Some weather stations in Texas reported more than four feet of rain, and Houston suffered some of the worst flooding in the city’s history. 

3. Hurricane Maria

Only a few weeks after Hurricane Harvey ravaged the Texas Gulf Coast, the Caribbean was, in September 2017, pounded by Hurricane Maria—which reached Category 5 at its worst. Maria caused some deaths in the Dominican Republic, Haiti and Guadalupe, but the worst damage by far occurred in Puerto Rico. Of the more than 3,050 people killed by Maria, most of the fatalities occurred in Puerto Rico—although 65 people were killed on the island of Dominica, which didn’t have time to adequately prepare thanks to rapid intensification. A year later, Puerto Rico is still recovering from Maria.

Maria is a perfect example of how bad climate change is making rapid intensification: the storm went from Category 1 to Category 5 in only about half a day.

4. Hurricane Sandy

In the U.S., hurricanes have been most likely to affect the southern states.

Floridians are more likely to experience hurricanes than residents of New Jersey or Massachusetts, but that doesn’t mean that residents of the northeastern U.S. are immune to them—not by a longshot. And in 2012, Hurricane Sandy caused billions of dollars in damage, pounding the New Jersey Shore and the coast of Maryland as well as New York City. Atlantic City was evacuated, parts of Manhattan suffered flooding, and the mass transit systems of NYC and Philadelphia (which is about 60 miles inland) were shut down.

When Kevin E. Trenberth (a senior climatologist for the National Center for Atmospheric Research) was asked whether or not Hurricane Sandy was affected by climate change, he responded that while the answer was yes, Sandy was hardly unique in that regard. In 2012, Trenberth asserted, “All weather events are affected by climate change because the environment in which they occur is warmer and moister than it used to be.”

5. Hurricane Ike

In September 2008, Hurricane Ike caused at least 195 deaths and affected a wide area ranging from Cuba, Haiti (where at least 74 deaths occurred) and the Bahamas to the Florida Panhandle, the Mississippi Coast and the Texas Gulf Coast. Altogether, Ike is believed to have caused about $38 billion in damage.

St. Anne's Episcopal Church was established in 1914 by Melbourne Knowles, Ansel Saunders and A.L. Wilkins, all hailing from the Islands of the Bahamas. The first church services were held in a wooden building located on the corner of what in now Dixie Highway and Foster Road. The site was utilized as a Social Pool Hall from Monday to Saturday, and converted to a church sanctuary on Sundays.
In 1921, the organization purchased the current site of the church which was later destroyed by the "Great Miami Hurricane of 1926." The church sanctuary was rebuilt in 1927, but was destroyed yet again by the "Labor Day Hurricane of 1935." It is noteworthy to mention, that amidst the rubble of the 1935 Hurricane, the Church Bell was salvaged and was loaned to the City of Hallandale Beach for use as an Air-Raid warning signal during World War II.
Subsequently, in the early forties pioneer families worked tirelessly to handcraft cement blocks which were used to construct the new sanctuary. The first service in the new sanctuary was held on Palm Sunday, March 21 1948, officiated by the late Rev. John Jarrett, II. Over the century, many priests served the St. Anne's Episcopal Church congregation providing spiritual and power leadership namely: Rev. George Taylor, 1968-1977; Rev. Robert Preston, 1977-1991; Rev. Dr. Williamson S. Taylor 1993-2002; and Rev. Ronald N. Fox, 2010-Present.

          Hurricane Florence is a Category 3 storm — here's what those category labels really mean      Cache   Translate Page

  • Hurricane Florence is headed for the East Coast of the US as a Category 3 storm.
  • Hurricane intensity is most commonly measured by what's called the Saffir-Simpson scale.
  • The scale helps estimate potential property damage and coastal flooding caused by storm surge.
  • However, the scale is determined by maximum sustained wind speeds of a storm.

Hurricane Florence is headed for the East Coast of the US as a Category 3 storm.

Hurricanes are storms that are so large they can easily be seen by astronauts in space, yet they are tricky-to-categorize weather events.

Over the decades, one classification system has risen above the rest: The Saffir-Simpson scale.

The Saffir-Simpson scale tries to assess a hurricane's intensity and is used to estimate potential property damage and coastal flooding caused by storm surge — an abnormal rise of water above the normal tide, generated by a storm pushing water ashore.

Winds are a big driver of storm surge, however, so the scale is determined by wind speed.

Flooding from storm surge depends on many factors, such as the storm's track, intensity, diameter, forward speed of the storm, and the characteristics of the coastline where it comes ashore or passes nearby.

Category 1

Winds of 74-95 mph (120-150 kph). Storm surge of 4 to 5 feet (1 to 1.5 meters) above normal. Damage primarily to un-anchored mobile homes, shrubbery and trees. Some damage to poorly constructed signs and piers. Extensive damage to power lines and poles likely will result in power outages that could last a few to several days.

Category 2

Winds of 96-110 mph (155-175 kph). Storm surge 6 to 8 feet (1.8-2.4 meters) above normal. Some roof, door and window damage to buildings. Considerable damage to mobile homes, small watercraft, trees, poorly constructed signs and piers. Flooding of coastal and low-lying areas. Many shallowly rooted trees will be snapped or uprooted and block numerous roads. Near-total power loss is expected with outages that could last from several days to weeks.

Category 3

Winds of 111-129 mph (180-210 kph). Storm surge 9 to 12 feet (3 to 4 meters) above normal. Some structural damage to small homes. Mobile homes destroyed and large trees blown down. Coastal flooding destroys smaller structures and floating debris damages larger structures. Terrain lower than 5 feet (1.5 meters) above sea level may flood as far as 8 miles (13 kilometers) inland. Hurricane Katrina, the costliest natural disaster in U.S. history, was a Category 3 storm at landfall in 2005 after being a Category 5 in the Gulf of Mexico. At least 1,800 people died.

Category 4

Winds of 130-156 mph (210-250 kph). Storm surge 13 to 18 feet (4-5 meters) above normal. Wall failures and roof collapses on small homes, and extensive damage to doors and windows. Complete destruction of some homes, especially mobile homes. Power outages will last for weeks to possibly months. Major coastal flooding damage. Most of the area will be uninhabitable for weeks or months. Two 2004 storms were Category 4: Hurricane Ivan, which made landfall near Gulf Shores, Alabama, and Hurricane Charley, which hit the Florida Gulf Coast near Fort Myers. Charley killed at least 21 people and left thousands homeless. The total U.S. damage was estimated to be near $15 billion.

Category 5

Winds greater than 157 mph (250 kph). Storm surge greater than 18 feet (5 meters) above normal. Complete roof failure on many homes and industrial buildings. Smaller buildings and mobile homes blown over or completely blown away. Major damage to lower floors of all structures located less than 15 feet (4.5 meters) above sea level and within 500 yards (460 meters) of the shoreline. Massive evacuation of residential areas on low ground within 5 to 10 miles (8 to 16 kilometers) inland may be required. The last Category 5 storm to hit the United States was Hurricane Andrew in 1992. An estimated 250,000 were left homeless and the storm caused more than $20 billion in damage in the Bahamas, Florida and Louisiana. Fifty-five people were killed.

Below is a graphic that shows all five categories and what they mean.

          Un millón de personas obligadas a evacuar en EEUU ante la llegada de Florence       Cache   Translate Page      
Washington (EFE)-. Más de un millón y medio de personas han recibido órdenes de evacuar sus viviendas en las costas de Virginia Carolina del Norte y del Sur, a medida que se aproxima el huracán Florence, que podría alcanzar la máxima categoría en la escala Saffir-Simpson a su llegada a la costa este de EE.UU.

Las potentes marejadas provocadas por la tormenta y los fuertes vientos plantearán "amenazas mortales", así como graves riesgos de inundación que han obligado a las autoridades a desplegar ya medidas de emergencia.

Se pronostica que las ondas más lejanas de la gran tormenta toquen tierra a última hora del miércoles en una zona costera que ya ha sufrido un severo aumento del nivel del mar, y luego el ciclón serpenteará durante el jueves, viernes y sábado, anegando varios estados y desencadenando inundaciones potencialmente mortales.

Más allá de las Carolinas y Virginia, la amenaza de inundaciones en el interior se extenderá hasta la próxima semana a algunas zonas de Tennessee, Georgia, Virginia Occidental, Ohio, Pensilvania, Maryland y el Distrito de Columbia, donde se encuentra la capital, Washington.

Precisamente los dos últimos territorios, Maryland y el Distrito de Columbia, declararon el estado de emergencia en las últimas horas.

La última vez que la capital de EE.UU. declaró el estado de emergencia por una alerta meteorológica fue en enero de 2016, cuando una tormenta invernal llamada "Snowzilla" cubrió la capital y su región en más de medio metro de nieve.

El tamaño del huracán Florence es "asombroso", advirtió el director del Centro Nacional de Huracanes (NHC, en inglés), Ken Graham.

"Podría cubrir varios estados fácilmente con solo la cobertura de nubes. Esto no es solo un evento costero", agregó.

Los pronósticos apuntan a unos siete días de fuertes lluvias por la costa este del país, que sobre todo afectarán a gran parte de Carolina del Norte y Virginia, combinando mareas altas.

"Esta será una tormenta que creará y causará daños masivos a nuestro país", aseguró hoy Jeff Byard, administrador adjunto de la Agencia Federal para el Manejo de Emergencias (FEMA, en inglés).

"Va a ser una recuperación a largo plazo. No va a ser una tormenta de la que nos recuperemos en días", advirtió.

Por su parte, el presidente de Estados Unidos, Donald Trump, declaró la situación de emergencia en Carolina del Norte y del Sur, facilitando la ayuda federal a esos territorios, y canceló los actos de campaña que tenía previstos para el jueves y el viernes con motivo de las elecciones legislativas que se celebrarán en noviembre.

"No se ha visto nada como lo que nos viene en 25, 30 años, tal vez nunca. Es tremendamente grande y tremendamente húmedo. Grandes cantidades de agua", dijo Trump en el Despacho Oval tras reunirse con las autoridades del Departamento de Seguridad Nacional (DHS, en inglés) y FEMA.

"La seguridad de los estadounidenses es mi máxima prioridad absoluta. No ahorramos ningún gasto. Estamos totalmente preparados, estamos listos, estamos tan preparados como cualquiera ", dijo Trump a los periodistas.

El gobernador de Carolina del Norte, Roy Cooper, dijo que su estado está "en la mira" e instó a los ciudadanos de su estado a "prepararse ahora" con provisiones para varios días.

Según un probable patrón de trayectoria, el centro de Florence se moverá por el suroeste del Atlántico entre Bermudas y las Bahamas hasta mañana, miércoles, y se acercará a la costa de Carolina del Norte o Carolina del Sur el jueves y el viernes.

Los expertos del NHC prevén que Florence se intensifique aún más en las próximas 24 horas y se mantenga como un huracán "extremadamente peligroso" hasta que su vórtice toque tierra probablemente en algún punto de la costa de Carolina del Norte en la madrugada del viernes.

El Centro Nacional de Huracanes (NHC, en inglés) indicó en su boletín de las 17.00 hora local (21.00 GMT) que Florence se encuentra 580 kilómetros al sur-suroeste de Bermudas y 1.260 kilómetros al este-sureste del cabo de Fear, en Carolina del Norte.

En las últimas horas los vientos de Florence incrementaron su intensidad y tienen una velocidad máxima sostenida de 220 kilómetros por hora.

          Book Trailer Premiere: The Greatest Adventure by Tony Piedra      Cache   Translate Page      

Hello, Tony Piedra! Thank you for stopping by to share the AMAZING book trailer for The Greatest Adventure. I cannot wait to share it with readers of all ages.

Tony Piedra: Hi Mr. Schu!  Thank you for inviting me on! I’m so honored and proud to be sharing my picture book debut with you.  It’s a project that’s been many years in the making.

INSERT TRAILER 

I wrote the words in purple, and Tony wrote the words in black. Thank you, Tony! 

The Greatest Adventure’s book trailer is a distillation of what I felt like as a kid living in a big city, while dreaming of one day having great adventures in wild places teeming with life, beauty, and mystery.  This childhood sentiment is the seed that sprouted the idea for The Greatest Adventure!


The Greatest Adventure tells the story of a little boy named Eliot who dreams of going on adventures, and his grandpa, El Capitán, who thinks his adventures have come to an end.  Together, they learn that an adventure with someone you love can take place anywhere.

Illustration Credit: Tony Piedra 

Eliot’
s grandpa 
once sailed deep, dark seas and wild jungle rivers, but he thinks his real adventures have come to an end when he puts up his old, broken-down boat, the Hispaniola, for sale and  moves in with his daughter and his grandson, Eliot.  Thankfully, there’s always something new to learn, no matter how old you are.




Picture books are magic. The ones I gravitated to as a child opened up new worlds for me.  My favorite children’s book of all time, which I checked out from the little red library in my neighborhood in Houston, TX, where I grew up, was called Album of Sharks by Tom McGowen and illustrated by Rod Ruth.  This book left such a vivid impression on me, that over 20 years later, when I tried to find a copy of the book with absolutely no information other than my childhood memories, I was able to do so because I remembered each and every one of Rod Ruth’s illustrations.  I even snuck in an easter egg in the endpapers of The Greatest Adventure as a small thank you to Rod Ruth’s work.  See if you can find it!


Story is best when it comes from a place that is personal and specific.  Like Eliot I grew up in a big city far away from jungles and wild rivers and deep, dark seas.  My notion of adventure was shaped by stories my father told me about his childhood in the Bahamas.  Stories filled with gliding manta rays and schools of flashing, silver fish.  He told me about looking for sharks with his older brother in a small wooden boat and about swimming in hidden blue holes they found tucked amongst the pine forests, which covered much of their island home.
The Greatest Adventure is my attempt to put together a longing for adventure and the realization of the importance of familial love.  If you have always sought adventure in far-flung wild places, this book might be right for you!

Mr. Schu, you should have asked me about my most recent great adventure!  Last summer I found myself standing alone in the rain on Admiralty Island, Alaska, a 1,500 square mile rock covered in a swath of temperate rainforest and home to the greatest concentration of coastal brown bears (a.k.a. grizzly bears) in the world.  And this island and one bear in particular on it may have become the centerpiece of my next story for children.  Where next?  Who knows!

Tony Piedra has been searching for adventure since he could hold a crayon. He has swum with sharks, met wild bears, and sailed to the moon (all without letting go of that same crayon). In between these adventures, he worked at Pixar Animation Studios building 3D worlds for movies like CocoUp, and Inside Out. The Society for Children's Books Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) awarded him a Portfolio Showcase Honor in 2014. He lives with his family in Los Angeles.

          How Hurricane Florence may affect wildlife      Cache   Translate Page

By Jason Bittel
12 September 2018

(National Geographic) – Evacuations are already underway in North and South Carolina in anticipation of Hurricane Florence’s arrival this weekend. But what happens to the wild animals that aren’t set up for text alerts?

Experience suggests it won’t be pretty, and stories abound from storms past. For example, in August of 2017, Hurricane Harvey nearly wiped out the last remaining population of wild Attwater’s prairie chickens in Texas. Two months later, Hurricane Irma killed off up to 22 percent of the remaining population of endangered Key deer in the Florida Keys.

And though it didn’t threaten specific species in the same way, Hurricane Matthew did drop a Cyprus tree smack dab on top of an American alligator when it ripped across Georgia in 2016.

With Florence now classified as a Category 4 hurricane, it seems likely that the Eastern Seaboard and its animals could be in for a rough couple of days. (Read: “Why Hurricane Florence Is Such a Dangerous Storm”)

For instance, while it’s getting to the end of the season, some loggerhead sea turtles still have eggs out there waiting to hatch.

“Beaches are a dynamic system but large storms do have the potential to cause problems for nests and hatchlings,” says David Steen, a research ecologist at the Georgia Sea Turtle Center.

“Submerging nests for a prolonged period of time will reduce their survival, and some storms may even have the potential to just wash them away.”

Besides storm surges and dangerous waves, Hurricane Florence’s winds will likely take a toll on numerous migratory species on their way through the area. (Read: “Why Some Bird Species Have It Worse After the Latest Hurricanes”)

“Right now, every night, we’ve got thousands of thrushes and warblers flying out over the Atlantic and some of them are going to get blown by this and end up exhausting themselves,” says Daniel Cristol, an ornithologist at the College of William & Mary.

Migratory birds are able to complete their epic journeys while living on a knife’s-edge of calories in and out. So if a storm knocks them off course by a day or more, they may not have the fat reserves to make up the loss.

“Habitat loss is biggest risk for birds of conservation concern, especially migratory species that need refueling locations to complete the journey,” says Gary Langham, vice president and chief scientist at the National Audubon Society. [more]

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




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

          Here's a Hurricane Florence environmental justice story that media outlets need to tell      Cache   Translate Page      


Melissa Joskow / Media Matters

A handful of news outlets are reporting about the danger of coal ash and hog manure spilling into North Carolina's waterways when Hurricane Florence hits the state. But so far they're missing an important part of the story -- that African-Americans and other communities of color could be hit particularly hard by such pollution. They're also failing to note that the Trump administration has been loosening regulations and oversight in ways that could make spills of coal ash and hog waste more likely.

The dangers of coal ash and hog manure pollution

North Carolina is home to 31 coal ash pits that power company Duke Energy uses to store an estimated 111 million tons of toxic waste produced by coal-fired power plants. North Carolina is also home to thousands of manure pits, known euphemistically as "lagoons," that store approximately 10 billion pounds of wet waste generated each year by swine, poultry, and cattle operations in the state. This information came from Bloomberg, one of the first outlets to report that Florence could cause the waste pits to spill and create serious environmental and public health risks. The Associated Press also reported on the threats:

The heavy rain expected from Hurricane Florence could flood hog manure pits, coal ash dumps and other industrial sites in North Carolina, creating a noxious witches’ brew of waste that might wash into homes and threaten drinking water supplies.

Coal ash pits and hog waste dumps have both leaked and flooded in past years, causing devastating spills in North Carolina -- sometimes in the wake of hurricanes.

Hurricane Floyd, which struck North Carolina in 1999 as a Category 2 storm, washed 120 million gallons of hog waste into rivers, Rolling Stone later reported. As AP noted this week, that was just one part of the mess caused by Floyd:

The bloated carcasses of hundreds of thousands of hogs, chickens and other drowned livestock bobbed in a nose-stinging soup of fecal matter, pesticides, fertilizer and gasoline so toxic that fish flopped helplessly on the surface to escape it. Rescue workers smeared Vick’s Vapo-Rub under their noses to try to numb their senses against the stench.

After Floyd, North Carolina taxpayers bought out and closed down 43 hog factory farms located in floodplains, aiming to prevent a repeat disaster. But in 2016, when Hurricane Matthew hit the Carolinas as a Category 1 storm, at least 14 manure lagoons still flooded.

Soon after Matthew, The New York Times’ editorial board warned that such flooding could become more of a threat in the future as storms are supercharged by climate change:

In states where hog farmers use waste lagoons, like North Carolina and Illinois, flooding is a serious hazard that may become more frequent as climate change leads to more severe storms.

Unless North Carolina and other states require agriculture companies to change their waste-disposal methods, what happened after Hurricane Matthew will happen again.

In this week’s Bloomberg article, the head of the North Carolina Pork Council dismissed the significance of the 14 breaches in 2016 and downplayed the threat of spills triggered by Hurricane Florence.

There's an environmental justice component to this story

Even if they're not widespread, hog waste spills can still be devastating to those who live nearby -- and many of the unfortunate neighbors are low-income people of color.

Two epidemiology researchers at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill published a paper in 2014 with a straightforward title: "Industrial Hog Operations in North Carolina Disproportionately Impact African-Americans, Hispanics and American Indians." They wrote, "Overflow of waste pits during heavy rain events results in massive spills of animal waste into neighboring communities and waterways."

Tom Philpott explained more about that research in Mother Jones in 2017:

As the late University of North Carolina researcher Steve Wing has demonstrated, [North Carolina's industrial hog] operations are tightly clustered in a few counties on the coastal plain—the very part of the state that housed the most enslaved people prior to the Civil War. In the decades since, the region has retained the state’s densest population of rural African-American residents.

Even when hurricanes aren't on the horizon, activists are pushing to clean up industrial hog operations. “From acrid odors to polluted waterways, factory farms in North Carolina are directly harming some of our state’s most vulnerable populations, particularly low-income communities and communities of color,” Naeema Muhammad of the North Carolina Environmental Justice Network said last year.

Poor and rural communities of color are heavily affected by coal ash dumps as well. The New York Times reported last month on an environmental-justice campaign against coal ash pollution in North Carolina. Lisa Evans, a lawyer with the environmental group Earthjustice, told the Times, “Coal ash ponds are in rural areas, particularly in the Southeast. Those communities have less power and less of a voice.”

The Trump administration recently loosened rules on coal ash disposal

The first major rule finalized by Andrew Wheeler, acting head of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), loosened Obama-era requirements for coal-ash disposal. The change, which will save the power industry millions of dollars a year, could lead to more dangerous pollution. The Washington Post reported on Wheeler’s move in July:

Avner Vengosh, a Duke University expert on the environmental impacts of coal ash, said that scaling back monitoring requirements, in particular, could leave communities vulnerable to potential pollution.

“We have very clear evidence that coal ash ponds are leaking into groundwater sources,” Vengosh said. “The question is, has it reached areas where people use it for drinking water? We just don’t know. That’s the problem.”

The Trump administration is also going easy on factory farms like the industrial hog operations in North Carolina. Civil Eats reported in February that there's “been a decline in the number of inspections and enforcement actions by the [EPA] against concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs) since the final years of the Obama administration.” Last year, more than 30 advocacy groups filed a legal petition calling on Trump's EPA to tighten rules to protect communities from factory farms.

North Carolina Republicans aren't helping things either -- they've gone easy on coal plants and hog operations. And in 2012, the GOP-controlled state legislature actually passed a law banning state officials from considering the latest science regarding sea level rise when doing coastal planning. ABC reported on the development at the time:

The law was drafted in response to an estimate by the state's Coastal Resources Commission (CRC) that the sea level will rise by 39 inches in the next century, prompting fears of costlier home insurance and accusations of anti-development alarmism among residents and developers in the state's coastal Outer Banks region.

...

The bill's passage in June triggered nationwide scorn by those who argued that the state was deliberately blinding itself to the effects of climate change. In a segment on the "Colbert Report," comedian Stephen Colbert mocked North Carolina lawmakers' efforts as an attempt to outlaw science.

"If your science gives you a result you don't like, pass a law saying the result is illegal. Problem solved," he joked.

As Hurricane Florence bears down on North Carolina, journalists should make sure that their stories include the people who'll be hurt the most by waste spills and other impacts, as well as the businesses and lawmakers who have been making such environmental disasters much more likely to occur.

          LOS ESTRAGOS DE LA TITULITIS ACADÉMICA      Cache   Translate Page      
Rafael del Barco Carreras

Barcelona 13-9-2018. Tesis doctorales, masters, asignaturas dudosas, licenciaturas. En tiempos de Franco, por los 70, cuando el Ministerio de Educación se hallaba en la zona del Turó Park, corría la fábula ciudadana de 'arreglos varios' en aprobados y títulos. Cuando pasados los años me vi inmerso entre abogados, sospeché de la capacidad de algunos.

Con el tiempo descubrí que más que de la capacidad debía sospechar de su decencia. Me ocurrió con mis primeros abogados en el caso Consorcio, Juan Piqué Pidal profesor en la Universidad, con Luis Pascual Estevill ¡doctor en derecho!, y con el acusador por parte del Ayuntamiento el catedrático Rafael Jiménez de Parga. Pero en Barcelona no se ha profundizado, o nunca se ha investigado en las universidades públicas o privadas, ni menos en el Parlament, los casos de 'titulitis' de varios políticos. Apenas comentados en la prensa 'residual', y callados en la todopoderosa TV3, o subvencionados. Pecata minuta dentro de la 'corrupción institucionalizada'. Otro cantar fuera el de Urdangarín con ESADE.

También conocí un elemento, ya con Franco muy enterrado, que con varios títulos falsos en su 'bufete' firmaba escritos y denuncias en los juzgados, donde además incluía por preceptivo su número de colegiado. Me consta que fuera descubierto y hasta denunciado ¡pero nunca juzgado! Alguien en el Palacio de Justicia consideraría el caso demasiado escandaloso.

El que sea inocente que tire la primera piedra. Pero resulta que son a cientos, que una vez roto el bipartidismo, investigan en las carreras o éxitos académicos, y saltan liebres a mansalba. Para medrar en Política no se necesitan especiales y profundos conocimientos 'científicos' ¡más bien escasos!, pero los títulos adornan un currículum, que nadie comprobará, y muy necesario cuando se traspasa el nivel de los 'amigos íntimos' y se entra en la competición para los altos cargos. Nivel donde el 'fuego amigo' crea las más de las bajas. 

Pero la realidad demuestra que decenas y cientos de miles han gastado 'mucho codo' y noches en vela para sacarse sus carreras. Lo he vivido y vivo en mi entorno íntimo, que sin enchufes, ni 'amigos de', ni relación social alguna, han conseguido los títulos y hasta los empleos y cargos en el sector privado y ¡triunfando en el extranjero! El eficiente sector privado catalán, donde por regla general cada uno es quién es sin quitar ni poner títulos. Los viejos profesores decían aquello de que 'ellos aprobaban pero sería la vida que en realidad aprobara o suspendiera'. No así en el sector público catalán, donde quién no tiene padrinos no se bautiza, o se le suspende por bajo nivel en catalán.

El Gobierno de Pedro Sánchez

El PSOE urge elecciones ante la erosión de Sánchez

| Ainhoa Martínez| Madrid
Preocupación porque el Ejecutivo no haya sido capaz de rentabilizar la dimisión de Montón y se vea enredado en una polémica ya «superada».

L’independentisme evidencia que no té estratègia comuna

El PDECat pacta amb el PSOE una moció pel diàleg dins la llei i la retira després que ERC se’n desmarqui

El Govern aprova l'avantprojecte de llei per retirar la simbologia franquista i impulsar la comissió de la veritat

La nova norma de memòria democràtica recollirà i substituirà les que hi havia fins ara en aquest àmbit

Rivera diu a Sánchez que hi ha "dubtes raonables" sobre la seva tesi doctoral i li demana que la publiqui

Sánchez afirma que està publicada i l'acusa de convertir en un "fangar" la sessió de control

 


Rivera reclama a Sánchez que enseñe su tesis para disipar las dudas

El presidente del Gobierno replica que el trabajo está publicado según la legislación vigente

El PDeCAT retira la moció acordada amb el PSOE per un “diàleg” dins la llei

La formació renuncia a la iniciativa després que ERC ha anunciat que no hi donaria suport
La vicepresidenta del Partit Demòcrata, Miriam Nogueras, retreu als socialistes que “juguin amb el diàleg”

El Govern avisa Sánchez: “La Diada ha demostrat que l’estratègia de la por i la ignorància del PP no ha servit de res”

Elsa Artadi destaca la “sintonia” entre l’executiu català i les entitats sobiranistes diu que treballen junts “pel mateix objectiu”
Repeteix que es treballa en “la línia del diàleg i la negociació”
