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.

          I quit my high-paying job to travel the world — and came back as the CEO of my own company      Cache   Translate Page      

Quit my job

  • I quit my job after 10 years of working at an aerospace brand and in finance.
  • By many measures, I had excelled in those roles — I earned great money and ran prestigious teams all over the world.
  • However, the 12-hour days and little free time became too much to bear, and I felt that life was passing me by.
  • So I quit my job to travel the world — and unexpectedly became a CEO. 

 

Ever since I was five years old, all I've ever wanted was to travel and meet people around the world. I grew up in communist Poland. The borders were closed, and passports were nearly impossible to get. Everyone around me said  I would never be able to see the world.

But I never believed it. I've always felt like a global citizen. 

Soon after communism collapsed in Poland, I put all of my drive and ambition into my education.

I came to the US, finished college in three years while working full time, graduating summa cum laude. I quickly got recruited by a multi billion-dollar global aerospace brand.

Within six months, I began leading global IT programs, creating and managing remote teams on four different continents and training thousands of members around the world from my laptop.

We accomplished amazing things, and soon new career opportunities poured in. I wanted to challenge myself and grow, so I moved to the financial industry.

I had finally made it to the VP level. Running large global programs and leading high-performance teams sounded prestigious. But each new career step was becoming more intrusive, stressful, office-bound, and time-consuming.

I spent agonizing hours in traffic getting to and from a job that was less than inspiring. My 12-hour work days were filled with spreadsheets, slide presentations, endless meetings, and canceled vacations.

Swiveling in my chair in my almost-corner office, I wondered: Is this all there is to life?

I started wondering what had happened. Where was the adventurous soul who wanted to travel the world? Now I could barely scrape together a week to get away.

Life was passing me by

Like many people I know, I was living on autopilot: finishing school, giving up the best years of my life to work, and postponing my dreams for the elusive idea of retirement. Deferring life was my norm.

Essentially, I was betting my entire life on the possibility of truly enjoying it near the end. The more I thought about it, the more the idea sounded like an irresponsible and risky gamble. There was only one option: I had to take time off to begin living — now.

Quit my job

The stakes were high — I was leaving behind my entire 10-year career and giving up the security of my income in exchange for one year of travel and living. I was scared, but the more I looked around, the more I realized that there are no guarantees in life.

We have only one life, and there is no do-over. I began to see that quitting my office job to finally live my life was not the riskiest decision — staying in my taxing job and not giving my life a chance was. So I packed my bags and bought a one-way ticket to Spain.

I traveled — and started a business

I visited over 50 countries and six continents, soaking up the sun in Bali, sipping wine in Santorini, climbing to the base camp of Mount Everest, and scuba diving at the Great Barrier Reef. Travel became my new life.

Quit my job

Every time I visited a new country, I was blown away by the talented people I met — amazing people with so much untapped potential and so few opportunities. I couldn’t stand it.

I could clearly see how many of the people I met could drive innovation for top companies worldwide, if only given a chance. 

Drawing on my own remote-work experience, I quickly realized that I didn't have to give up my dream of travel and helping people around the world to accomplish my career goals.

All of a sudden, my vision was clear: Everybody deserves a chance to live up to their potential, and the flexibility of remote work can help them do it.

Quit my job.

So I created my first Facebook group for remote and travel jobs, and began working with progressive and forward-thinking employers worldwide who shared remote work opportunities daily.

Initially, there were only 100 members, but when the community reached 3,500 people, I knew this was bigger than me. These were extremely talented people from all over the world. I believed in them, and they counted on me.

So I did everything I could to help. I reached out to every employer I could to bring more remote job opportunities and I went to every meetup out there to learn more about how to create a successful business.

Eventually, I met entrepreneur Gregg Pollack, who recommended that I apply to Starter Studio, an innovative hub he created for entrepreneurs.

Quit my job

I made a few slides showing how amazing our community is. After many subsequent steps, I was accepted to the program. For the next three months, I spent every waking hour learning from top entrepreneurs how to build a successful business.

At the end of the program, Pangian, our borderless digital nation, was born.

Today, Pangian is platform powered by machine learning and AI, matching top talent around the world with high-quality, long-term remote work. We just expanded to 121 countries with top global companies and over 39,000 members united by our goal of flexible work that has meaning and fulfills us.

And this is just the beginning.

          A 10 años de la muerte de Françoise Demulder, la primera mujer que ganó un World Press Photo      Cache   Translate Page      

Francoise

El 4 de septiembre de 2008 moría Françoise Demulder, una de las mejores fotógrafas francesas, víctima de un cáncer. Han pasado 10 años desde entonces y su figura se recuerda estos días. Ella es la autora de una de las fotografías más estremecedoras de la guerra del Líbano en 1977 y de algunos de los retratos más significativos de los líderes políticos. Es momento de recordar a Françoise Demulder.

Françoise Demulder nació en París en 1947. Aunque su vida parecía que iba a ser tranquila en Francia, ella apostó por la lucha contra la guerra y a favor de la justicia y la libertad. Estudiante de filosofía y con una pequeña carrera de modelo, decidió ir con un billete solo de vuelta a Vietnam a principio de los 70 con su entonces pareja, el fotógrafo Yves Billy. No había nada previsto en ese viaje que terminó marcando su vida.

La guerra de Vietnam empezó en 1955. Duraría hasta 1975 cuando los últimos norteamericanos fueron expulsados del país, algo que solo Françoise Demulder sería capaz de fotografiar. Pero no nos adelantemos y vamos a ver qué cambió en la cabeza de nuestra fotógrafa para terminar convirtiéndose en una de las fotógrafas de guerra más importantes del siglo XX, aunque su nombre hoy no sea recordado.

Cómo se convirtió en fotógrafa de guerra

En aquel viaje a Vietnam todo cambió en su cabeza. O quizás solo encontró la excusa perfecta para convertirse en lo que fue. Para buscarse la vida y poder conocer más a fondo la realidad de un país envuelto en una guerra política encontró una solución: hacer fotografías para venderlas luego a Associated Press por 20$. Fue la guerra de la imagen. La más vista, la más retransmitida... y la que provocó que los fotoperiodistas lo tuvieran cada vez más complicado en las sucesivas confrontaciones. Se dieron cuenta de que la imagen puede terminar lo que los políticos empiezan.

Francoisei Imagen del vídeo Karantina Massacre by FRANCOISE DEMULDER - Pour la petite histoire

Pero volvamos a Françoise Demulder. Se dio cuenta de lo que podía hacer con una cámara entre las manos. Así que empezó a profundizar en el arte de la fotografía en la mejor escuela del mundo, la cruda realidad. Se especializó en lo que pedía la sociedad en aquel momento cuando estabas en Vietnam y querías acabar con la realidad, la fotografía de guerra. Y con su carisma pudo moverse por todo el país con ayuda del ejército norteamericano, que entonces no dudaba en ayudar a la prensa gráfica.

Así aprendió los rudimentos de uno de los trabajos más duros que existen dentro de la fotografía. Quizás no es la mejor forma pero a algunas personas les basta con la práctica. Quizás tardaba más en conseguir el disparo pero en esta profesión está visto que la intuición funciona. Desde luego no a todo el mundo, pero a Françoise Demulder le sirvió.

De hecho cuando todos los extranjeros tuvieron que salir del país ante la inminente victoria, ella fotografió, el 30 de abril de 1975, la simbólica llegada de los tanques del Vietcong a Saigon. Solo hubo un profesional en aquel momento y fue ella. Allí empezó su fulgurante carrera, con el apodo de Fifi, que según cuentan las crónicas le puso el mismísimo Arafat. Una de sus frases más conocidas es:

Odio la guerra pero me siento obligada a documentar que el inocente es siempre el que sufre, mientras que el poderoso se vuelve más y más rico.

Ganadora del premio World Press Photo 1977

A finales de los años 70 las mujeres se hicieron un hueco en la profesión: la propia Françoise Demulder, Catherine Leroy y Christine Spengler empezaron a llamar la atención a las agencias por la calidad de sus fotografías. Entonces se empezó a apostar por la calidad de la mirada. No importaba quién estaba detrás de la cámara.

De Vietnam fue a todos los países de Asia sudoriental y Medio Oriente. Cubrió eventos en Cuba, Pakistán y Etiopía... La fotografía que le dio fama internacional la hizo en 1976 y le dieron el prestigioso premio en 1977. A lo más jóvenes seguro que les suenan las guerras en Oriente Próximo. Conflictos que llevan más de lo que nos gustaría pensar.

Françoise Demulder estaba en Beirut, documentando el principio de la guerra civil libanesa. En la fotografía observamos a una mujer palestina suplicando a un soldado de las Falanges Libanesas armado. El fondo es sobrecogedor y somos incapaces de imaginar un buen final para los que salen. El pueblo siempre como víctima de las guerras por peleas políticas y de religión. Ese disparo certero, más justo que el que pueda conseguir cualquier pistola, llamó la atención del jurado del concurso más prestigioso de fotoperiodismo.

Francoiseiii Página de la web del WPP

Se convirtió en la primera mujer en ganar semejante premio. Aunque nunca fue reconocida como una de las grandes, como si sucede con Christine Spengler, por poner un ejemplo, marcó el camino para abrir la profesión y demostrar que solo importa la mirada:

Cuando Françoise Demulder vino a Ámsterdam para recibir su premio a la Foto Mundial de Prensa del Año en 1977, le dijo al periódico holandés Het Vrije Volk que había entrado en la zona cristiana el día que la Falange decidió "limpiar" el barrio de Karantina. Los cristianos iban de casa en casa en el barrio palestino. Le dispararon a todos los que estaban allí. Había 350 civiles que huyeron de sus casas llorando. Los palestinos salieron con banderas blancas en sus rifles. Pero los falangistas seguían disparando, sin importar a quién golpeaban. Nunca antes había experimentado un odio tan fanático". Según Demulder, solo la niña y su hijo en el fondo de la imagen sobrevivieron a la masacre.

Françoise Demulder murió en 2008, después de cinco años de enfermedad en los que llegó a perder la movilidad de sus piernas. Llegó a salir en la novela 'A walking guide' de Alan Cowell e inspiró a Michael Alan Lerner para el personaje de la fotoperiodista de 'Deadlines'(2004). El día de su muerte la ministra Cultura de Francia señaló que Francia había perdido 'a una mujer notable, una gran fotógrafa y una reportera de guerra de un coraje excepcional. artista y testigo de nuestros tiempos'.

          Trump OKs sanctions for foreigners who meddle in elections      Cache   Translate Page      

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump signed an executive order Wednesday authorizing sanctions against foreigners who meddle in U.S. elections, acting amid criticism that he has not taken election security seriously enough.

"We felt it was important to demonstrate the president has taken command of this issue, that it's something he cares deeply about — that the integrity of our elections and our constitutional process are a high priority to him," said national security adviser John Bolton.

In the order, the president declared a national emergency, an action required under sanctions authority, to deal with the threat of foreign meddling in U.S. elections.

The order calls for sanctioning any individual, company or country that interferes with campaign infrastructure, such as voter registration databases, voting machines and equipment used for tabulating or transmitting results. It also authorizes sanctions for engaging in covert, fraudulent or deceptive activities, such as distributing disinformation or propaganda, to influence or undermine confidence in U.S. elections.

It requires the national intelligence director to make regular assessments about foreign interference and asks the Homeland Security and Justice departments to submit reports on meddling in campaign-related infrastructure. It also lays out how the Treasury and State departments will recommend what sanctions to impose.

With the midterm elections now two months away, National Intelligence Director Dan Coats said the U.S. is not currently seeing the intensity of Russian intervention that was experienced in 2016, but he didn't rule it out. He said the U.S. is also worried about the cyber activities of China, North Korea and Iran.

Coats said Trump's order directs intelligence agencies to conduct an assessment within 45 days after an election to report any meddling to the attorney general and Department of Homeland Security. The attorney general and Department of Homeland Security then have another 45 days to assess whether sanctions should be imposed.

"This clearly is a process put in place to try to assure that we are doing every possible thing we can, first of all, to prevent any interference with our elections, to report on anything we see between now and the election, but then to do a full assessment after the election to assure the American people just exactly what may have happened or may not have happened," Coats said.

Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., and Sen. Chris Van Hollen, D-Md., are pushing a bill that would prohibit foreign governments from purchasing election ads, using social media to spread false information or disrupting election infrastructure. They said Trump's order recognizes the threat, but doesn't go far enough.

The order gives the executive branch the discretion to impose sanctions for election meddling, but the bill would spell out sanctions on key economic sectors of a country that interferes. Those backing the legislation say that under the bill, a nation would know exactly what it would face if caught.

Virginia Sen. Mark Warner, ranking Democrat on the Senate intelligence committee, said the order leaves the president with broad discretion to decide whether to impose tough sanctions. "Unfortunately, President Trump demonstrated in Helsinki and elsewhere that he simply cannot be counted upon to stand up to (Russian President Vladimir) Putin when it matters," said Warner, who is sponsoring the bill.

At a July 16 news conference with Putin in Helsinki, Trump was asked if he would denounce what happened in 2016 and warn Putin never to do it again. Trump did not directly answer the question. Instead, he delivered a rambling response, including demands for investigation of Hillary Clinton's email server and his description of Putin's "extremely strong and powerful" denial of meddling.

That drew outrage from both Republican and Democrats.

Trump has pushed back, saying that no other American president has been as tough on Russia. He has cited U.S. sanctions and the expulsion of alleged Russian spies from the U.S.

Mike Rogers, former director of the National Security Agency, said he thought Trump missed an opportunity in Helsinki to publicly scold Russia for meddling. Rogers said when he used to talk to Trump about the issue, Trump would often respond to him, saying "Mike, you know, I'm in a different place."

Rogers said he would tell Trump: "Mr. President, I understand that, but I'm paid by the citizens of the nation to tell you what we think. Sir, this is not about politics, it's not about parties. It's about a foreign state that is attempting to subvert the very tenets of our structure."

In his first public comments since he retired in June, Rogers said: "That should concern us as citizens. That should concern us leaders. And if we don't do something, they (the Russians) are not going to stop."

Rogers, who spoke Tuesday night at the Hayden Center at George Mason University in Virginia, also said earlier media reports claiming Trump had asked him to publicly deny any collusion between Moscow and Trump's campaign were inaccurate.

James Clapper, the former national intelligence director who appeared with Rogers and other former intelligence officials, said he personally believes that the Russian interference did influence the outcome of the 2016 election, but didn't elaborate.

"The Russians are still at it. They are committed to undermining our system," Clapper said. "One of the things that really disturbs me is — that for whatever reason, I don't know what it is — the president's failure to dime out Putin and dime out the Russians for what they are doing."

Hi Charles. People are allowed to take small quantities of cigars and rum into the US since Obama. And yes you are right that there is some circumventing of the blockade. The fact that food is allowed into Cuba is only because of the international laws that the embargo was previously contravening. And it is a one way trade. The fact is that the blockade still has an affect on the Cuban economy. I don't know how much, but Hilary Clinton put it as 20% of their economic problems.
          Comment on Let’s Talk about the US Blockade by danicymru      Cache   Translate Page      
Some really good points Repatriado. I think the line between immoral and illegal is here. If the hater chooses not to frequent a shop on racial grounds then that is immoral but is his or her business. However if they encourage or pressurize other people to boycott the shop keeper then that would be illegal - at least under UK law. A trade union was prosecuted for telling people to boycott a newspaper they were in dispute with. In my opinion people don't have an absolute right to free speech because words have consequences. There are many things that curtail that freedom. You can't be libelous, you can't be threatening, you can't encourage other people to commit a crime, you can't incite racial hatred and to offensive language can also be prosecuted. I have to concede you might be right regarding the Cuban government sponsoring an action in the American courts. I'm not sure why they haven't. The tendency is that the US when confronted with something like this they adjust minimally rather than dropping the blockade completely or going through the court procedures. That's what they've done with food and medicine and maybe the minimum tours allowed is enough to cover them. During the cold war the blockade didn't have much affect except that it tied Cuba very firmly to the Soviet block. Since the fall of Communism it is a very different situation and there is no justification. That they receive oil from Venezuela on preferential rates has nothing to do with the blockade. Nicaragua and Bolivia also receive the same benefits as do poor people in the US. And there were plans to do such a deal with London. The point is that if the blockade was dropped there is no suggestion that Cuba would lose any of this. Ok you are right the third example is where sanctions are applied due to a country invading others. No I don't think there are extreme human rights abuses in Cuba. There are far worse examples where the US has done nothing - take Nicaragua where 300 people have died in the recent upheaval or Spain where 900 Catalans have been jailed or awaiting trial.

Check the cargo that arrives everyday on commercial airlines!! Check th cigars and rum that leave for the U.S. There is a private enterprises going on in the private sector on a cash basis.

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.

          [OPINION] American Horror Story - Every Season Ranked      Cache   Translate Page      



Disclaimer
Please note that the views and opinions expressed in this article are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the official policy or position of SpoilerTV.

In the fall of 2011, American Horror Story seemed like a bit of a gamble for FX. Not much was known about the series when it debuted other than the buzzy cast (Connie Britton, Dylan McDermott, and Jessica Lange) and lauded creators (Glee and Nip/Tuck producers Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk). A gothic soap with twisted thrills, it quickly became the most talked about series around every water cooler. With ratings rising consistently throughout the first season, it wasn’t long before AHS was an outright sensation, wowing both critics and audiences with dark, daring, and often disturbing storylines, electrifying performances, and some truly incredible cinematography and set dressing.

At the end of the first season, which has since been dubbed ‘Murder House’, Murphy and Falchuk announced that AHS would continue on as an anthology series, utilizing much of the same cast each year, but telling different stories with (mostly) brand new characters. Today, the show should be credited as kicking off the now-omnipresent wave of anthology series that dominate television: Fargo, Genius, American Crime, True Detective, and Murphy’s own American Crime Story and Feud are just a few. Over the years, debates have raged online on as to which season of AHS reigns supreme – and which one belongs six feet under.

With the eighth season, ‘Apocalypse’ set to debut tonight, I present the definitive ranking of every American Horror Story season so far... according to me.

7 – ‘Cult’ (Season 7)


Main Cast: Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Adina Porter, Billy Eichner, Allison Pill, and Billie Lourd.

A season that was notable only for Evan Peters’ phenomenal performance as psychotic cult leader Kai Anderson, 'Cult' was set around the election of Donald Trump in late 2016. Murphy crossed the stories of Ally Mayfair-Richards (Paulson), a liberal restaurateur who is haunted by her paralyzing phobias, and Kai, a mentally deranged young man who plays on the growing fear and hostility in America to form a suburban cult.

More than anything, 'Cult' served political platitudes that didn’t have much more to say than, ‘Trump is evil’ and ‘sexism and racism are bad’. What Murphy and his team neglected to do was write any fully-formed characters or work towards a clear climax. So while the season started off promisingly enough, it eventually gave way to the same issues that have plagued too many recent seasons of AHS. It meandered for episodes on end, became overstuffed with needless side stories, and used characters as puppets for the plot rather than ever really developing them. Despite an amusing repertoire of mostly-new cast members (Colton Haynes and Leslie Grossman also joined the fun), 'Cult' felt like it never really knew where it was going.

Perhaps most egregious of all, the audience was never even shown how the titular cult was formed, which was indicative of a larger issue with the season. Too many of the important plot points happened offscreen, probably because they made no sense and Murphy couldn’t figure out how to write them. It felt like the writers decided to do a topical season based on the election and just threw together all these pieces as they went along. Bits of it were fun, but as a whole, it was a mess.

By the end of the season, it seemed as though the series had totally given up on the main narrative. Instead, we got Evan Peters playing a range of real-life cult leaders from Charles Manson to Jim Jones in multiple episodes. These vignettes ranged from mildly amusing to totally absurd, and despite Peters’ stellar performance, they all felt unnecessary and little more than inconvenient distractions from the season getting to any logical conclusion. When all was said and done, the story had become so full of plot holes, implausibilities, and leaps in logic that it became impossible to enjoy the few things that the show was doing well.

6 – ‘Hotel’ (Season 5)


Main Cast: Lady Gaga, Matt Bomer, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Kathy Bates, Denis O’Hare, West Bentley and Angela Bassett.

Another example of a season that started off with promise but completely crumbled by the halfway point, 'Hotel' was a major transition for AHS, being the first season without star Jessica Lange. In her place, Murphy introduced Lady Gaga as The Countess, a bloodsucker who calls the mysterious Hotel Cortez home. While the direction, sets, costume design, and cinematography are among the best of the series, the cast and writing didn’t quite live up to the rest of the package.

Particularly trite was the story of the Ten Commandments Killer, a so-called mystery that became painstakingly obvious almost immediately. As with 'Cult', 'Hotel' introduced a number of interesting characters that the writers had no idea what to do with. Instead, by mid-way through the season they were adding a number of bizarre side-plots that distracted from the main arc and added little to the narrative. This is all the more devastating due to the fact that heavyweight talent like Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett and Matt Bomer were essentially being thrown scraps.

One character and plot remains largely memorable, however. Denis O’Hare gave one of the finest performances of the entire series as Liz Taylor, an enigmatic transgender bartender who also resides within the Hotel Cortez. The flashbacks to Liz’s life before her transition, as well as how she came to the hotel, remain a crowning achievement of AHS, at once devastating and triumphant. O’Hare, who has consistently been a series highlight, gave a bold and fearless performance that makes me question why he wasn’t given more to do in 'Roanoke' or brought back at all for 'Cult'.

5 – ‘Roanoke’ (Season 6)


Main Cast: Sarah Paulson, Cuba Gooding Jr., Kathy Bates, Adina Porter, Angela Bassett, Lily Rabe, Andre Holland, Wes Bentley and Cheyenne Jackson.

'Roanoke' will always get some bonus points in my book for shaking things up. While Murphy typically announces the theme of each season months in advance (coupled with vast promotional campaigns from FX), 'Roanoke' remained a mystery until the season premiere aired… and even then, fans weren’t exactly sure what they were watching. Initially billed as ‘My Roanoke Nightmare’, the season was essentially split into two, with the first five episodes telling the story of a haunting in North Carolina, presented as a docu-drama complete with actors performing re-enactments and the real-life 'survivors’ telling their stories through confessional footage. At episode six, the paradigm shifts, and the story is then told through found footage billed as ‘Return to Roanoke: Three Days in Hell’.

If all of that sounds a bit confusing, it was. Many actors were playing two, sometimes three, roles. Nevertheless, it was mostly wildly entertaining, and even a bit scary in parts. It was also the rare installment of the series that got better as it went along. What it lacked, however, were any truly great characters (though Paulson’s campy, entitled actress Audrey Tindall was endlessly amusing). Even the weakest seasons of AHS have given us memorable character arcs, while 'Roanoke' was much more focused on style and story than any real character development. The result was a season that was fun if not fantastic. That is, until the truly awful finale, which deserted all thrills in favor of more gimmicky show-within-the-show pieces that let down all the excitement and tension that had built for the previous 9 weeks.

The need to unnecessarily, and illogically, shoehorn in Lana Winters from 'Asylum' was confirmation that Murphy’s decision to oblige fan-demand that each season be connected could hurt the show more than it might ever help it. Hopefully it will work out much better for 'Apocalypse'.

4 – ‘Freak Show’ (Season 4)


Main Cast: Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Michael Chiklis, Finn Wittrock, and Dennis O’Hare.

'Freak Show' was the toughest to place on my list. Divisive amongst fans while it aired, it has aged better for me than any installment that has come since. It was also the last season to feature Jessica Lange in a lead role, and despite several incredible performances from many talented actors in subsequence seasons, the series has never been able to fully recapture the magic that Lange brought to each of her characters. Here, she starred as Elsa Mars, an enigmatic ex-pat who runs Fräulein Elsa's Cabinet of Curiosities in Jupiter, Florida. While Lange gave a killer performance, it was actually a newcomer who stole the show.

Finn Wittrock joined the series as Dandy Mott, a spoiled, rich, man-child who developed a perverse obsession with Sarah Paulson’s conjoined twins Bette and Dot. Mott, after forming a chill-inducing friendship with (the sorely underutilized) a murderous clown named Twisty, becomes the true villain of the season. Wittrock’s performance was electric, consistently both terrifying and oddly endearing – he reminded me, at times, of a young Malcolm McDowell in A Clockwork Orange.

Likewise, the cinematography and set decoration also harkened back to classic Kubrick. Directors like Alfonso Gomez-Rejon and Michael Uppendahl brought an often-claustrophobic feeling to the series, utilizing gorgeous sets and locations that were at once stylish, sprawling, and haunting. 'Freak Show' wasn’t perfect (let’s just pretend 90% of the musical numbers never happened) but it had tons of fantastic characters and was able to nail a satisfying ending for pretty much every one of them.

3 – ‘Coven’ (Season 3)


Main Cast: Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Sarah Paulson, Dennis O’Hare, Evan Peters, Taissa Farmiga, Emma Roberts, Lily Rabe, and Frances Conroy.

While easily the most popular season ratings-wise, 'Coven' was the installment where AHS began to show real cracks. Looking back, it has many of the same issues that later proliferated in subsequent seasons. Still, many fans call 'Coven' their absolute favorite. More so than he did with the first two seasons, Murphy fully embraced supernatural camp here, telling the story of Miss Robichaux's Academy, a conservatory for young witches in New Orleans run by headmistress Cordelia Foxx (Paulson), the daughter of the current Supreme, Fiona (Lange). The main storyline follows the question of which young woman will become the next Supreme, a witch born every generation who embodies specific gifts and magical abilities known as the Seven Wonders.

Murphy also tied in some haunting New Orleans lore, including the twisted story of slave killer Delphine LaLaurie (Bates), voodoo priestess Marie Laveau (Bassett), and the notorious Axeman serial killer (Danny Huston). Plus, Stevie Nicks showed up and twirled around and sang some songs.

My main problem with this season was the lack of follow-through for so many introduced storylines. We discover early on that each of the young main witches has a specific unique gift (or curse, in some cases) but they’re never explained. I was hoping that the finale would shed some light, for example, on why Taissa Farmiga’s character Zoe spontaneously kills men when she has sex with them. No such luck. There were also too many characters who were inessential to the plot (this is the only season where Evan Peters' character feels like an after-thought). If you take 'Coven' for what it is – ridiculously campy, scary fun with great performances and snappy writing – it’s easily enjoyable. If you’re looking for cohesive stories or character arcs with follow-through, look elsewhere.


2 – ‘Murder House’ (Season 1)


Main Cast: Connie Britton, Dylan McDermott, Jessica Lange, Evan Peters, Taissa Farmiga, Dennis O’Hare, Lily Rabe, and Francis Conroy.

The season that started it all still holds up as one of the strongest installments of the franchise. A biting thriller centered around the Harmon family’s quest to start over after a series of troubling events, the first season was a fascinating mix of scary, sexy, sad, and twisted. Knockout performances from Connie Britton and Jessica Lange put the series on the map, but it was the entire ensemble that made this season so memorable.

'Murder House' accomplished what too many of the following seasons have failed to: it told a singular, cohesive story that nailed a spectacular climax (“Birth”) and a satisfying conclusion (“Afterbirth”). Murphy expertly utilized a large cast with stories spanning not only decades but entire generations, to tell a universal story about infidelity, infatuation, love, loss, and family. Despite the ghosts, monsters, and – of course – Rubber Man, the most affecting moments were human: Vivien (Britton) being pushed to the limits of her sanity, Tate (Peters) having to face up to his brutal, murderous past, and Constance (Lange) reflecting on the horrifying realities of her broken family.

1 – ‘Asylum’ (Season 2)


Main Cast: Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Lily Rabe, Zachary Quinto, Joseph Fiennes, James Cromwell, and Lizzie Brocheré.

Not just the best season of AHS, 'Asylum' is also one of the finest limited series to air this decade. Masterfully directed, written, and designed, and populated with brilliant characters, 'Asylum' wasn’t just creepy – it was downright terrifying. It was also frequently funny, sharp, and incredibly poignant.

Anchored by a powerhouse performance from Jessica Lange as Sister Jude, a nun maintaining patients at Briarcliff Manor in 1964, 'Asylum' also spanned several decades and told multiple stories but was able to follow a clear throughline and deliver a satisfying conclusion. This is perhaps even more impressive when you take into account exactly how much was covered in just 13 episodes: dozens of complex and often endearing patients, a nun possessed by the devil, a gruesome serial killer with unsettling mommy issues, a deranged doctor who may or may not have been a Nazi (Anne Frank shows up), a killer in a Santa suit, and even some aliens.

Despite all of this, what 'Asylum' got right amidst even the most otherworldly trappings, was that the human stories mattered most. Murphy gave us characters who we could root for, so that when they were in danger or being oppressed and tortured we genuinely cared. This also led to more genuine scares than any other season. Sarah Paulson’s reporter, Lana Winters, went through some of the most macabre and horrifying trials of any character on the series, and she remains one of the most beloved because she was so thoughtfully developed and written. Even with all the wild implausibilities, viewers could see themselves in these characters and situations - and nothing is more frightening than that.

  •           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.

    Conozco a Lázaro personalmente y solo digo para caracterizar su estirpe que tiene tatuada la efigie del Che y que su hijo se llama Ernesto. Se que en los últimos años ha estado residiendo en Venezuela, pero eso no le ha impedido competir y representar a Cuba en cuanta competencia importante se le reclamaba desde la patria. Se que nunca dejó de representar a Las Tunas en los campenonatos nacionales. Sin embargo y ahí viene el pero, Nadie es profeta en su tierra. Cuanta verdad encierra esa frase. Me contó cuanto dolor sintió cuando en una ocasión acabado de coronarse campeón y llegando a Las Tunas, nadie pero nadie nadie nadie se dignó ir a recibir al CAMPEÓN NACIONAL. A los pocos días se encontró casualmente al Comisionado de Ajedrez de la provincia y este le dijo de lejos "Oye llámame". Nadie lucha por la gloria, la gloria llega sola y nuestro gran maestro dijo Honrar, honra y pregunto ahora: Alguna vez se le honró como se le ha hecho con nuestro equipo tunero de beisbol (a ellos los respeto y los admiro y no digo que los honores que les han hecho no sean merecidos). Lázaro en la categoría del ajedrez está a la altura de cualquier boxeador o pelotero tunero, sin embargo no creo que sus éxitos fueran ponderados por las autoridades provinciales y nacionales a la altura que lo mrecen. Digo más y con todo el respeto que se merece Leynier y sin disminuir en nada los honores que también este ha merecido, pero creo que los directivos nacionales del deporte y la prensa cubana agradeció que surgiera Leynier para rendirle a este último honores por ser "occidental" Éxitos Lázar en tus nuevas empresas.

    San Pedro Sula, Honduras.

    El Marathón enderezó el camino, volvió a mostrar su fútbol vistoso y saboreó las mieles del triunfo al vencer 3-1 al Honduras Progreso la tarde del miércoles en duelo correspondiente a la jornada 9 del Torneo Apertura 2018 de la Liga Nacional.

    El conjunto verdolaga pudo contar para este encuentro con el entrenador Héctor Vargas en el banquillo, ya que la Comisión de Disciplina del Norte lo habilitó tras la apelación del cuadro sampedrano luego de que había sido sancionado con 3 partidos tras polémicas declaraciones al DT uruguayo "Tato" García.

    Además los verdes volvieron a tener bajo los tres palos al arquero Denovan Torres.

    El vigente campeón del fútbol hondureño llegaba para este encuentro con la presión de volver a sacar la victoria tras su derrota el pasado domingo ante Platense y en los primeros minutos lograron liquidar a un equipo progreseño que dejó mucho que desear en el estadio Yankel Rosenthal.

    Carlos "Chino" Discua se encargó de liderar al equipo verde y se hizo presente en el marcador con un golazo que levantó de los asientos a los pocos aficionados que llegaron al estadio Yankel Rosenthal.

    El mediocampista en el minuto 17 cobró un tiro de esquina espectacular, la pelota superó la barrera del cuadro visitante y se metió al fondo de las redes ante una estirada que fue inútil del portero mexicano Yustin Pérez.

    El Honduras Progreso siguió sin aparecer y el funcionamiento del Monstruo Verde estuvo al 100%.

    No dejó que el club progreseño metiera presión en la ofensiva.

    Al minuto 21, Marathón aumentó la cuenta en una jugada en donde nuevamente apareció Carlos Discua.

    El zurdo se metió al área, sacó un centro que fue desviado por el central de los ribereños Luis Gonzáles y la esférica ingresó.

    Era el 2-0 siendo un partido sin apuros para los marathones.

    En el minuto 26 el cuadro que dirige Mauro Reyes reaccionó.

    Pedro Mencía recorrió varios metros con la esférica y sacó un derechazo que pasó a un costado del arco defendido por Denovan Torres.

    Sobre el cierre de la primera mitad, Marathón respondió con un zurdazo de "Chama" Córdova al darle la vuelta y de forma impresionante el cancerbero Yustin Pérez la pudo desviar y mandar al tiro de esquina.

    ComplementoPara el segundo tiempo el juego se llenó de polémica, por lo que el central Melvin Matamoros tuvo que ser riguroso producto de la intensidad que presentaron los jugadores de ambos clubes.

    El entrenador Mauro Reyes realizó de entrada los cambios por lo que aspotó con Mariano Acevedo y Franklin Owen Morales, pero al final las modificaciones no le dieron resultados.

    Al minuto 69 el central Bryan Johnson conectó un tiro de esquina y con certero cabezazo estuvo a punto de anotar para los verdes.

    En los últimos minutos se vinieron más goles y las polémicas del encuentro.

    El delantero cubano Yaudel Lahera en el minuto 74 se hizo presente para liquidar el partido.

    Sacó un remate que cruzó al portero de los visitantes que no reaccionó y fue el tercero a favor de los actuales campeones.

    Los progreseños quisieron reaccionar y lograron descontar.

    Al 83, el centrocampista de contención Juan Delgado, que siempre se caracteriza por anotar goles de buena factura, en esta ocasión no fue la excepción.

    "Camellito" de larga distancia remató de derecha y se incrustó al fondo de las redes en una acción en donde Denovan Torres pudo haber hecho más.

    La polémica del encuentro llegó dos minutos después.

    Yustin Arboleda recibió una falta por parte del defensor trinitense André Ettienne; el colombiano molesto se levantó y para sorpresa de todos le dio un cabezazo por lo que inmediatamente vio la cartulina roja dejando a su equipo con diez.

    La calentura del partido siguió en los jugadores y los progreseños también se quedarían con un jugador menos.

    El lateral Lisandro Gutiérrez le dio un manotazo en el minuto 90 a Henry Romero y también se fue a las duchas.

    El marcador no se movió y con ello Marathón finaliza la primera vuelta con 13 puntos siendo esta la segunda victoria de la presente temporada ya que anteriormente se impuso 3-1 ante Real de Minas.

    Cabe señalar que los dirigidos por Héctor Vargas tienen un partido pendiente que deberán de disputar ante Motagua.

    Por su parte el Honduras Progreso se estanca en la clasificación con 8 unidades y Mauro Reyes se tambalea en el banquillo del cuadro progreseño.

    Spirit of the Masquerade to exhibit in September 2018.

    The Uumbaji Art Gallery located at Kent State University's Oscar Ritchie Hall is pleased to present “Spirit of the Masquerade,” a doll exhibition, themed Masquerades of Western Africa.  The exhibit dates are Sept. 3 to Sept. 28, 2018 featuring a closing reception on Friday, Sept. 21, 2018 from 5 to 8 p.m. in the gallery room 134. Gallery hours are from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.  This exhibit is free and open to the public.

    The featured artist for this exhibit is Orisanmi Kehinde Odesanya, formally known as Joyce Morrow Jones[1] .  Orisanmi has been designing and creating dolls for over 20 years. Through a passion for African art and culture, she has created more than 200 small-scale figures to honor Yoruba deities and masqueraders. Along with her small-scale figures, Orisanmi created a full-sized masked costume for this exhibition.  Her work embodies the wisdom and folklore of oral tradition and thereby represents the philosophy, spirituality and performance of Yoruba expressive culture.

    For many cultures and people, the mask facilitates the bridge between the physical and spiritual realms.  Spirit of the Masquerade recreates the beauty of the Mask through a doll series, educational program exhibit.  Masks featured in this exhibit are: Yoruba Raffia, Yoruba Gelede, Yoruba Egungun, Bwa Masquerade, Burkina Faso, Sande Sowo, Dogon, Epka, Acuba, Benin, Chowke Pwo, Ghanian Style, and Bamileke.  According to Odesanya, “the Masquerade. . . telling the story: The appreciation of a culture begins with understanding.” Learn more about the artists’ point of view.

              3 open source log aggregation tools      Cache   Translate Page      
    https://opensource.com/article/18/9/open-source-log-aggregation-tools

    Log aggregation systems can help with troubleshooting and other tasks. Here are three top options.

    How is metrics aggregation different from log aggregation? Can’t logs include metrics? Can’t log aggregation systems do the same things as metrics aggregation systems?
    These are questions I hear often. I’ve also seen vendors pitching their log aggregation system as the solution to all observability problems. Log aggregation is a valuable tool, but it isn’t normally a good tool for time-series data.
    A couple of valuable features in a time-series metrics aggregation system are the regular interval and the storage system customized specifically for time-series data. The regular interval allows a user to derive real mathematical results consistently. If a log aggregation system is collecting metrics in a regular interval, it can potentially work the same way. However, the storage system isn’t optimized for the types of queries that are typical in a metrics aggregation system. These queries will take more resources and time to process using storage systems found in log aggregation tools.
    So, we know a log aggregation system is likely not suitable for time-series data, but what is it good for? A log aggregation system is a great place for collecting event data. These are irregular activities that are significant. An example might be access logs for a web service. These are significant because we want to know what is accessing our systems and when. Another example would be an application error condition—because it is not a normal operating condition, it might be valuable during troubleshooting.
    A handful of rules for logging:
    • DO include a timestamp
    • DO format in JSON
    • DON’T log insignificant events
    • DO log all application errors
    • MAYBE log warnings
    • DO turn on logging
    • DO write messages in a human-readable form
    • DON’T log informational data in production
    • DON’T log anything a human can’t read or react to

    Cloud costs

    When investigating log aggregation tools, the cloud might seem like an attractive option. However, it can come with significant costs. Logs represent a lot of data when aggregated across hundreds or thousands of hosts and applications. The ingestion, storage, and retrieval of that data are expensive in cloud-based systems.
    As a point of reference from a real system, a collection of around 500 nodes with a few hundred apps results in 200GB of log data per day. There’s probably room for improvement in that system, but even reducing it by half will cost nearly $10,000 per month in many SaaS offerings. This often includes retention of only 30 days, which isn’t very long if you want to look at trending data year-over-year.
    This isn’t to discourage the use of these systems, as they can be very valuable—especially for smaller organizations. The purpose is to point out that there could be significant costs, and it can be discouraging when they are realized. The rest of this article will focus on open source and commercial solutions that are self-hosted.

    Tool options

    ELK

    ELK, short for Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana, is the most popular open source log aggregation tool on the market. It’s used by Netflix, Facebook, Microsoft, LinkedIn, and Cisco. The three components are all developed and maintained by Elastic. Elasticsearch is essentially a NoSQL, Lucene search engine implementation. Logstash is a log pipeline system that can ingest data, transform it, and load it into a store like Elasticsearch. Kibana is a visualization layer on top of Elasticsearch.
    A few years ago, Beats were introduced. Beats are data collectors. They simplify the process of shipping data to Logstash. Instead of needing to understand the proper syntax of each type of log, a user can install a Beat that will export NGINX logs or Envoy proxy logs properly so they can be used effectively within Elasticsearch.
    When installing a production-level ELK stack, a few other pieces might be included, like Kafka, Redis, and NGINX. Also, it is common to replace Logstash with Fluentd, which we’ll discuss later. This system can be complex to operate, which in its early days led to a lot of problems and complaints. These have largely been fixed, but it’s still a complex system, so you might not want to try it if you’re a smaller operation.
    That said, there are services available so you don’t have to worry about that. Logz.io will run it for you, but its list pricing is a little steep if you have a lot of data. Of course, you’re probably smaller and may not have a lot of data. If you can’t afford Logz.io, you could look at something like AWS Elasticsearch Service (ES). ES is a service Amazon Web Services (AWS) offers that makes it very easy to get Elasticsearch working quickly. It also has tooling to get all AWS logs into ES using Lambda and S3. This is a much cheaper option, but there is some management required and there are a few limitations.
    Elastic, the parent company of the stack, offers a more robust product that uses the open core model, which provides additional options around analytics tools, and reporting. It can also be hosted on Google Cloud Platform or AWS. This might be the best option, as this combination of tools and hosting platforms offers a cheaper solution than most SaaS options and still provides a lot of value. This system could effectively replace or give you the capability of a security information and event management (SIEM) system.
    The ELK stack also offers great visualization tools through Kibana, but it lacks an alerting function. Elastic provides alerting functionality within the paid X-Pack add-on, but there is nothing built in for the open source system. Yelp has created a solution to this problem, called ElastAlert, and there are probably others. This additional piece of software is fairly robust, but it increases the complexity of an already complex system.

    Graylog

    Graylog has recently risen in popularity, but it got its start when Lennart Koopmann created it back in 2010. A company was born with the same name two years later. Despite its increasing use, it still lags far behind the ELK stack. This also means it has fewer community-developed features, but it can use the same Beats that the ELK stack uses. Graylog has gained praise in the Go community with the introduction of the Graylog Collector Sidecar written in Go.
    Graylog uses Elasticsearch, MongoDB, and the Graylog Server under the hood. This makes it as complex to run as the ELK stack and maybe a little more. However, Graylog comes with alerting built into the open source version, as well as several other notable features like streaming, message rewriting, and geolocation.
    The streaming feature allows for data to be routed to specific Streams in real time while they are being processed. With this feature, a user can see all database errors in a single Stream and web server errors in a different Stream. Alerts can even be based on these Streams as new items are added or when a threshold is exceeded. Latency is probably one of the biggest issues with log aggregation systems, and Streams eliminate that issue in Graylog. As soon as the log comes in, it can be routed to other systems through a Stream without being processed fully.
    The message rewriting feature uses the open source rules engine Drools. This allows all incoming messages to be evaluated against a user-defined rules file enabling a message to be dropped (called Blacklisting), a field to be added or removed, or the message to be modified.
    The coolest feature might be Graylog’s geolocation capability, which supports plotting IP addresses on a map. This is a fairly common feature and is available in Kibana as well, but it adds a lot of value—especially if you want to use this as your SIEM system. The geolocation functionality is provided in the open source version of the system.
    Graylog, the company, charges for support on the open source version if you want it. It also offers an open core model for its Enterprise version that offers archiving, audit logging, and additional support. There aren’t many other options for support or hosting, so you’ll likely be on your own if you don’t use Graylog (the company).

    Fluentd

    Fluentd was developed at Treasure Data, and the CNCF has adopted it as an Incubating project. It was written in C and Ruby and is recommended by AWS and Google Cloud. Fluentd has become a common replacement for Logstash in many installations. It acts as a local aggregator to collect all node logs and send them off to central storage systems. It is not a log aggregation system.
    It uses a robust plugin system to provide quick and easy integrations with different data sources and data outputs. Since there are over 500 plugins available, most of your use cases should be covered. If they aren’t, this sounds like an opportunity to contribute back to the open source community.
    Fluentd is a common choice in Kubernetes environments due to its low memory requirements (just tens of megabytes) and its high throughput. In an environment like Kubernetes, where each pod has a Fluentd sidecar, memory consumption will increase linearly with each new pod created. Using Fluentd will drastically reduce your system utilization. This is becoming a common problem with tools developed in Java that are intended to run one per node where the memory overhead hasn’t been a major issue.

              Spare a Thought for Venezuela      Cache   Translate Page      

    Please spare a thought for Venezuela. This, the 33rd largest country in the world and with about 34 million people, the largest proven reserves of oil, the cheapest price of gasoline in the world, and was in 1950 richer than Germany, has fallen on times so hard in this once Latin America's richest country that 75% of the population lost an average of 11 Kg (24 pounds) in weight in one year because of food scarcity. And you might ask: "Why should I care?"

    Venezuela is located on the northern coast of South America and shares land borders with Brazil, Colombia, Guyana, as well as Trinidad and Tobago. Officially called the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, the country was colonized by Spain in 1522 but gained full independence about 300 years later and 188 years ago, in 1830. Venezuela is a charter member of many important international organizations, including the United Nations (UN), the Organization of American States (OAS), Mercosur (the South American trade bloc), and the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), to name a few.

    Venezuela is the 10th largest exporter of oil in the world, and its economy is largely based on the petroleum sector, which accounted for over 50% of the gross domestic product (GDP) of the country in 2015. Thanks to a huge government subsidy program, Venezuela has the cheapest gasoline in the world, costing $0.11 per gallon ($0.03 per litre) in 2014, even after a 6,200% increase!

    Give Me Two!

    Venezuela's history, although rocky, has had its glorious moments, including periods of political plurality, as well as oil-fueled economic booms that attracted immigrants from near and far (including Europe) into the country. Venezuela has also had dark moments of political turmoil, dictatorships, and economic gloom, because of various domestic and external factors.

    Venezuela enjoyed both a relatively stable democracy, and significant economic growth between 1958 and the early 1980s. During this period, politics was dominated by two parties, and government revenues more than doubled after the 1973 Arab-Israeli war resulted in a huge rise in oil prices. Although the boom would soon turn to burst, it lasted long enough for Venezuelans to become known for the phrase "Ta barato, dame dos” ("It's cheap, give me two") as they bought up relatively cheap goods in their travels abroad.

    In the early 1980s, the global oil glut brought down crude oil prices, and along with it, the Venezuelan economy. As a result, the country's foreign exchange reserves ran desperately low, as government debt mounted, and in desperation government devalued the currency by 100% on "Black Friday” (February 18, 1983). In addition, government announced an IMF-backed economic reform program which increased fuel, transport, and utilities prices, and lifted the price cap on some basic goods.

    As a result, the country was plunged into economic and political crises, with deadly a wave of protests called the Caracazo riots in which an estimated 300 to 3,000 people died. The prevailing conditions also resulted in two unsuccessful coup attempts (in February and November, 1992), by leftist military officers, led by Hugo Rafael Chávez Frías to overthrow the government. Although Chavéz was imprisoned after the first coup attempt, he was pardoned in March 1994, thus enabling him to contest, and win, the 1998 presidential elections.

    The Road to Hell

    The road to hell, they say, is paved with good intentions. And if anything, Venezuela's current tragic plight proves the adage, given the innocuous and well-intentioned start of the Chavéz-led Bolivarian Revolution.

    Following his victory in the 1998 elections, Chavéz embarked on a reform campaign some have termed "institutional engineering” in a bid to consolidate his power and break the 40-year hold the two leading political parties had on Venezuelan politics. Chavéz also implemented "democratic socialist" economic policies, including the redistribution of wealth, land reform, the creating creation of worker-owned cooperatives, and the attainment of food security and food sovereignty. To implement these policies, Chavéz created social programs called Bolivarian Missions and Communes, and 100,000 state-owned cooperatives.

    Venezuela suffered an economic downturn in early 2002, and this, coupled with anger about Chavéz's war on the elites, and his alignment with Fidel Castro's Cuba led to an abortive coup against his government in April 2002. That same month, managers at the state petroleum company, Petróleos de Venezuela (PDVSA), went on a two-month strike over Chavéz's nominations for new members of the company's board of directors. Chavéz had long denounced PDVSA (parent company of Citgo, a US energy company) for its association with the US and business elites. After the collapse of the strike, Chávez fired 18,000 PDVSA employees and replaced them with 100,000 of his supporters, aka Chavistas.

    The failed PDVSA management strike enabled Chavéz to take control of the company's coffers to fund his social programs and support his political base. By 2011, some $500 million was siphoned from the PDVSA pension fund to finance government-backed financiers. Such lavish spending inflicted the Dutch Disease on the country, with its fiscal health wrecked, despite increasing exports of, and revenues from oil.

    Chavéz's policies were initially helpful, but unsustainable because of the drain on the country's finances. While poverty rates decreased 48.6% in 1999 to 32.1% in 2013, Venezuela had the one of the highest literacy rates in the region, and malnutrition fell from 21% in 1998 to 6% in 2009, price controls led to shortages of goods. Similarly, currency controls, introduced to curb capital flight exacerbated matters by leading to a shortage of foreign exchange, a decline in the value of the Bolivar, and increasing inflation.

    Although oil prices increased significantly later in 2002, bringing in huge revenues, Venezuela's economy began to collapse because of what someone called RIDDS: recession, inflation, declining foreign reserves, debt, and shortages. Thus, the huge increase in government spending during the 2012 campaign to re-elect Chavéz ballooned public debt and fiscal deficit. Similarly, the decision to replace trained PDVSA personnel with revolutionaries, and deprive the company of capital decreased oil production, despite increasing levels of proven reserves of oil.

    Between 2007 and 2013, inflation grew an annual rate of 27.4% (at least five times the rate for Latin America), scarcity, (especially of food, medicines and essential goods) set in, and foreign reserves fell at an alarming rate of $38 million per day. In short, all indicators pointed to trouble ahead for Venezuela when Chavéz died in March 2013.

    Enter Maduro

    Following the death of Chavéz, his Vice President and former Minister of Foreign Affairs, Nicolás Maduro Moros, became Interim President. Maduro went on to win the constitutionally-mandated presidential elections in April 2013, and was inaugurated as President on April 19, 2013. A former bus driver who did not complete his high school education, Maduro made up for his lack of the charisma that Chávez, his predecessor and mentor, had by being autocratic and continuing Chávez's populist programs.

    Things got worse in a hurry. Annual inflation increased from 29.4% in April 2013 to 61.5% a year later. Hyperinflation (i.e. monthly inflation rate exceeds 50%) set in in 2016 when inflation reached an annual rate of 800%, and the economy contracted almost 19%. By September 2016, 15% of Venezuelans were eating discarded food they picked from dumpsites.

    In 2017, inflation reached 4,000%, as Venezuelans lost average of 11 Kg (24 pounds) because of food shortages, and 90% of them lived in poverty. To make matters worse, the US government slapped sanctions on Maduro in a bid to prevent him from raising additional funds. Last month, Venezuela's annual inflation rate reached a staggering 200,000%, meaning that prices increase by that much since August 2017. In addition, corruption and crime increased, and people took to the streets to protest against the difficult conditions they were enduring.

    President Maduro tried every trick in the book to arrest the country's slide into chaos by increasing the minimum wage four times between April 2014 and July 2015, changing the method of calculation of inflation, introducing a crypto currency, the Petro, as well as devaluing and re-denominating the currency by cutting five zeros from it. Nothing worked.

    In exasperation, Venezuelans have been voting with their feet, with an estimated 1.6 million of them having fled their country since 2015, according to the UN agency for migration. The majority of these migrants are professionals and the middle class, thereby depriving the country of much-needed human capital. The mass emigration of Venezuelans has also strained neighboring countries (especially Colombia and Peru, which have taken in almost 1 million, and over 400,000 Venezuelans, respectively), and provided graphic images to a global audience. About two weeks ago, a Summit of 13 Latin American countries agreed to reduce restrictions on Venezuelan migrants, and appealed for more international aid to enable them deal with the inflow of Venezuelans, which Venezuela's president Maduro said was "normal."

    Who Cares?

    Venezuela's economic meltdown should be of concern to many, including those in the Internet infrastructure industry. With one chicken costing 14 million Bolivars (about $2.2), and banks out of cash, it is easy to imagine how difficult it would be to register or renew the registration of a domain name, or purchase a certificate of authority, not to mention buy hardware such as servers. Such challenges impact many people and issues such as online privacy and safety, as well as security, both within and outside Venezuela.

    Venezuela should also be a cause for concern because it has been a major source of funding for developing countries, especially in development cooperation among developing countries in the global South (the so-called South-South cooperation). Between 2000 and 2011, Venezuela spent $7.6 billion (in 2009 USD) on development finance in other countries. In addition, Venezuela initiated the Petrocaribe alliance which provides oil at concessionary terms to its 17 member countries, many of them from CARICOM, the 15-member Caribbean economic community.

    Despite the unimaginable difficulties faced by Venezuelans, they continue to make significant contributions to the maintenance of the global Internet infrastructure as well as the policy development processes that underpin it. The Venezuelan ccTLD, .VE is an important part of the Internet infrastructure, along with copies of the F and L root servers. Earlier this year, the .VE ccTLD was reported to have had an additional 48,000 domain names registered compared to a year earlier. This increase, however, is probably due to the high-handed methods of the Venezuelan government which banned the use of all non-.VE domains in the country.

    In partnership with the Latin America and Caribbean Network Information Centre (LACNIC), Internet Systems Consortium (ISC), and ICANN, Venezuela installed copies of the F- and L-root servers in 2006, and 2015, respectively, thereby helping increasing the resilience of the Internet infrastructure in the region. Venezuela's contribution to the global Internet infrastructure includes the ALBA-1 fiber cable which connects Venezuela, Cuba and Jamaica to the Internet. Other international sub-marine cable projects Venezuela is connected to include the Americas-1 South, the Americas-II, Arcos-1, the Atlantica-1/GlobeNet, and the PAC.

    Besides hardware and hard cash, Venezuela also contributes to the global Internet by participating in ICANN, and other similar regional and international organizations. Venezuela has been a member of ICANN's Government Advisory Committee (GAC) since 2014, is a member of the CCNSO as well as ALAC, and its regional structure in Latin America and the Caribbean, LACRALO. Venezuelans also contribute to the work of Internet-related regional organizations such as LACNOG and LACNIC, work in the DNS industry, and have an Internet Society (ISOC) Chapter.

    What Now?

    In view of the difficult economic situation in Venezuela and the contribution of the country and its people to the global Internet, it is fair to contemplate what can and should be done to support them. Clearly, support from the international community should be coordinated, and tailored to the missions of various organizations or partner providing such support.

    Venezuelans themselves should take the lead in the developing a support program or programs. In this regard, organizations such as ICANN and ISOC, along with international development partners (e.g. World Bank, and the ITU), should work with Venezuelans, as well as regional partners (e.g. LACNIC) to develop a support program to address current needs and plan for the recovery of the Venezuelan economy.

    Although this might be easier said than done given that the US is hell-bent on regime change in Venezuela, the old adage that there's a way where there's a will applies. ICANN, for example, can help in a number of ways including travel support to enable Venezuelans attend the organization's meetings and providing them additional slots in ICANN'S Fellowship and Future Leaders programs.

    ICANN can also support the Venezuelan Internet infrastructure and DNS industry players, including ISPs, registrars, the .VE ccTLD registry, and operators of root server copies. ICANN, ISOC, and the DNS industry outside Venezuela can hire Venezuelans who are or have been active in these communities but were forced to leave their country because of the difficult circumstances prevailing there.

    No Condition is Permanent

    Venezuela's present predicament is a good reason to recall the Nigerian proverb: No condition is permanent! As tough as things are, they will get better. Just as the United States, which once paid tributes to Barbary (aka Ottoman) corsairs based in Tripoli, Libya, can now choose when and how to lord over that country, Venezuela will one day rise from these ashes. This is a great time to leave a lasting legacy on the minds of Venezuelans, especially the younger generation, and all hands should be on deck to help them wade through their present difficulties. So, when next you get in the mood to sing What a Wonderful World, please spare a thought for Venezuela.

              Mariners Church Huntington Beach - Lead Pastor      Cache   Translate Page      

    PLEASE APPLY HERE ---> https://vsearch.ws/2xauK87

     

    Weekly Attendance: 1200

    Theology: Nondenominational 

    Neighborhood: Huntington Beach, CA

    The role: The next Lead Pastor will provide primary spiritual, visionary, and strategic leadership to Mariners Church Huntington Beach.

     

    Meet Mariners Church Huntington Beach: 

    Mariners HB is a son church of Mariners Church based in Irvine, CA, a 50+ year old non-denominational church with a history of planting churches in and around Orange County.

    In 2010, Mariners launched Rooted, a transformational discipleship experience discovered in Nairobi, Kenya and it was wildly successful.  Rooted triggered a resurgence of new people coming to church, accepting Christ, getting baptized, serving and staying together as life groups.  Mariners changed its ministry strategy from a menu-driven model to a simple path, and developed the Transformational Loop to align efforts as a church around the weekend experience, community life and outreach with Rooted as the first step.

    About the same time, Mariners started planting churches with the same DNA:  shared mission, vision, values and strategy. Because typical church plants have an extremely high failure rate, the hope was that by developing a family of churches using the same strategy with Rooted as the catalyst, a shared learnings model would allow these new churches with unique personalities to thrive in their communities.  Initially video venues, Mariners later adopted a model with Lead Pastors, live teaching, shared governance and scalable operational infrastructure. The vision to incubate and develop healthy, high performing pastors and churches capable of becoming fully independent and self-sustaining was being realized.

    Mariners Huntington Beach is one of four churches planted during this time. In 2009, Mariners HB was launched as a video venue with a Campus Pastor.

    In spite of 63 churches in the area, 54% of the population is unchurched; which means over 100,000 people in our community need to meet Jesus.  We see God moving in amazing ways and Mariners HB is primed for a new leader with a passion to reach the community of Huntington Beach and beyond, to inspire people to follow Jesus and fearlessly change the world.

    Mariners Church is a community of ordinary people from all walks of life courageously trusting Him to do the extraordinary. Simply put, they trust Him to do what they can’t — heal, transform, renew, forgive, provide, and sustain. And through each redemption story of each believer at Mariners, God is glorified, lives are changed, and communities are impacted in a significant way.

              "The Great Divergence"      Cache   Translate Page      
    "The Great Divergence"
    by Brian Maher

    "A hinge, somewhere within the financial machinery, has given way… The pretty mainstream tale of “synchronized global recovery” has been reduced to a sad jest. Even its loudest drummers can only cough behind their hands. American markets once again trade at or near record highs - it is true. But overseas markets are in a bad way…

    The Chinese stock market is down 25% from its early-year high. It has therefore officially entered bear market country (a 20% decline). The Japanese stock market is down 12% over the same space - an official correction. And German stocks? Down 17% and risking a bear market all their own. Foreign orders for German capital goods have plunged 12% over the past seven months - an ill omen for Europe perhaps. Meantime, we are told that 809 of 1,150 emerging-market stocks are down 20% or more.

    Observe below how the S&P 500 marched in step with global stocks until this spring. 
    Then note the subsequent divergence:
    Something’s not right… Bank of America claims this divergence "is reaching levels normally only exceeded in bear markets." To what strange arts do we attribute this parting of courses? What subtle alchemy is at work?

    Perhaps we need look no further than 2051 Constitution Ave NW, Washington, D.C., 20418. That of course is the address of the Eccles Building... home to the Federal Reserve’s Board of Governors.  The Federal Reserve has been raising interest rates since December 2015. Meantime, many global interest rates still wallow in negative figures.

    Capital flows to where it is treated best. And at present, global capital is pouring into American markets… where it is treated grandly in comparison. As the folks at Phoenix Capital explain: "The Fed policies of raising rates is making the U.S. extremely attractive to capital. Today, the yield on short-term U.S. debt is over 2%. This is happening at a time when most of the world is still posting negative yields."

    Put simply, the Fed is making U.S. debt extremely attractive to capital… at a time when other nations are punishing their debtholders. As a result of this, capital is moving into the U.S., propping up our markets while the rest of the world collapses. The trend may only accelerate - in the short run at least. The Federal Reserve’s so-called Open Market Committee meets less than two weeks from today. The market is currently placing the odds of a rate hike at 96.8% - in favor. Why it is not 96.7% or 96.9% is a mystery we are unable to penetrate.  But the business appears all but certain.

    Meantime, the Federal Reserve has been hacking into its balance sheet since October last. Our agents inform us it gouged nearly $70 billion from the books in August alone - its largest reduction to date. The effect of this quantitative tightening is to siphon additional capital from overseas markets. Bank of America's Barnaby Martin, for example, asserts that quantitative tightening: "Is having the effect of pulling global capital out of those pockets of the economy that were the big beneficiaries of the post-[financial crisis] reach for yield."

    American markets have been the beneficiaries of the directional flow… while overseas markets are on the skids.  But how long can this divergence endure?

    In today’s vastly interlocked world, the butterfly flaps its wings somewhere and a storm rages half a world away.

    Can U.S. markets retain their immunity to overseas effects? “The economy, globally, is slowing down from the fringes and going to the core,” as Hans Redeker, head of foreign exchange strategy at Morgan Stanley, recently warned. Continued Redeker: "When you see a risk in emerging markets rolling over, and you have this concentration of liquidity in the U.S., you know that the next market that is going to give in is the equity market of the United States of America."

    Peter Boockvar, chief investment officer at Bleakley Advisory Group, agreed with the somber assessment: "It’s hard to think that S&P 500 companies are going to be somehow immune to the slowdown we’re clearly seeing in China and the rest of Asia and also throughout Europe and Latin America."

    Incidentally, nearly half the profits of S&P corporations originate abroad. We explained after last month’s Turkish contretemps that an emerging-markets crisis might not impact American shores for nearly four months - if history is a guide. That would place landfall in November or December. Regardless, things will turn the other way - eventually.  But as always, nothing happens… until it happens.

    Below, Jim Rickards shows you how the dollar is becoming a victim of its own success. “Be careful what you wish for,” Jim warns. What does he mean? Read on."
    "The Dollar Is Becoming a Victim of Its Own Success"
    By Jim Rickards

    "Turkey’s economic problems are well-known. President Erdoğan has appointed relatives and cronies to key economic policy positions. This has caused a loss of independence of the central bank and a loss of confidence in the stability of the currency, the Turkish lira.  The lira collapse has triggered hyperinflation and a stock market crash. Bond yields are soaring. This domestic crisis has the potential for global contagion because Turkey has almost $500 billion in dollar-denominated external debt, which it cannot pay if exports and tourism dry up. 

    In addition, the U.S. and Turkey are in a trade war, partly due to Turkey’s detention of a U.S. minister who was traveling in Turkey. Other clashes are emerging with NATO while Turkey is warming up to Russia and Iran with regard to its interests in Syria.  In short, the Turkish economy is a mess and relations with the U.S. are near an all-time low. Still Turkey has one more rabbit to pull out of its hat. 

    President Erdoğan has now declared his goal of abandoning the U.S. dollar in Turkey’s commerce with its trading partners.  Erdoğan sees a way to buy and sell with Russia and China in rubles or yuan. Turkey has also been stockpiling gold, which it can use to settle balance of payments deficits and to back up a new currency, if needed.  Pursuit of these non-dollar alternatives suggests it’s just a matter of time before Turkey closes its capital account and reneges on its dollar-denominated debt.  Standing alone, Turkey is not a huge part of the global trading and payments system. But, it could start a trend toward non-dollar transactions that other countries can follow.

    The dollar is the most powerful weapon in the U.S. arsenal. The U.S. uses the dollar strategically to reward friends and punish enemies. The use of the dollar as a weapon is not limited to trade wars and currency wars, although the dollar is used tactically in those disputes. The dollar is much more powerful than that. The dollar can be used for regime change by creating hyperinflation, bank runs and domestic dissent in countries targeted by the U.S. The U.S. can depose the governments of its adversaries, or at least blunt their policies without firing a shot. The U.S. also uses the dollar to force its enemies into fronts, crude barter or the black market if they want to do business.

    So you must think of the dollar in geopolitical terms, not just a unit of account. The dollar constitutes about 60% of global reserves, 80% of global payments and almost 100% of global oil transactions. Transacting on the world stage means transacting in dollars.

    But importantly, the U.S. not only controls the dollar itself. It controls the dollar payments system itself. A dollar payment going from a bank in Shanghai to another bank in Sydney runs through one of these U.S.-controlled payments systems. In short, the dollar is the oxygen supply for world commerce and the U.S. can cut off your oxygen whenever it wants.

    Meanwhile, U.S. economic sanctions are being applied like never before.  Current targets include North Korea, Syria, Cuba, Iran, Turkey, China, Russia, and Venezuela. Several other countries are under consideration for tariffs and sanctions or on a waiting list. These sanctions are highly effective. The Iranian economy almost imploded in 2013 under prior sanctions and is imploding against today under new sanctions imposed by President Trump. 

    Yet, those policymakers in Washington imposing sanctions are ignoring the admonition, “Be careful what you wish for.” U.S. sanctions success is generating a backlash that could undermine the role of the dollar in the long-run.  For every action there is a reaction. America’s adversaries realize how vulnerable they are to dollar-based sanctions. In the short run, they have to grin and bear it. They’re fully invested in the dollar both in their reserves and in the desire of their largest companies like Gazprom (Russia) and Huawei (China) to become major global players.

    But our adversaries and so-called allies are already envisioning a world where the dollar is not the major reserve and trade currency. In the longer run, Russia, China, Iran, Turkey and others are working flat-out to invent and implement nondollar transactional currencies and independent payments systems. This will not involve dead-end cryptocurrencies like bitcoin but entirely new utility tokens and cryptos. Imagine something like a putincoin and you’ll be on the right track.

    China is pushing its trade counterparties to accept Chinese yuan as payment for goods and services. The yuan is a small part of global payments today (about 2%) but the yuan may get a boost as the U.S. sanctions on Iran kick in. China is Iran’s biggest customer for oil, and if U.S. sanctions prohibit dollar payments for Iranian oil, then Iran and China may have no choice but to transact in yuan.

    The International Monetary Fund, IMF, has already announced efforts to put its world money, the special drawing right, SDR, on a distributed ledger. This would make the SDR a global cryptocurrency for settling balance of payments transactions among China, Russia and other IMF members, also without reliance on the dollar payments system.

    Alongside the new money in cryptocurrencies, there is the oldest form of money, which is gold. The use of gold is the ideal way to avoid U.S. financial warfare. Gold is physical so it cannot be hacked. It is completely fungible (an element, atomic number 79) so it cannot be traced. Gold can be transported in sealed containers on airplanes so movements cannot be identified through wire transfer message traffic or satellite surveillance. There is good evidence that Iran currently pays for North Korean weapons technology with gold, and good reason to expect that future Chinese payments for Iranian oil will be made at least partly in gold.

    Imagine a three-way trade in which North Korea sells weapons to Iran, Iran sells oil to China and China sells food to North Korea. All of these transactions can be recorded on a blockchain and netted out on a quarterly basis with the net settlement payment made in gold shipped to the party with the net balance due. That’s a glimpse of what a future nondollar payments system looks like.

    Russia is the most active opponent of U.S. sanctions. Right now, Russia is being sanctioned with tariffs, account freezes, penalties and capital market bans because of its actions in Crimea and Eastern Ukraine. This has had some negative impact on the Russian economy, but Russia is fighting back.  Russia has sold off most of its holdings of U.S. Treasury securities and vastly reduced its dollar-denominated reserve holdings. At the same time, Russia has tripled its gold reserves in the past ten years and now has more gold in its official reserves than China. 

    In fact, Russia is the fifth largest gold holder of any nation after the U.S., Germany, France and Italy. Relative to the size of its economy, Russia has the most gold in the world. These gold holdings insulate Russia from dollar-based sanctions and protect Russia from dollar inflation.  Why would a country put 20% of its reserves into gold unless it expected gold to be a major part of the international monetary system in the future? It wouldn’t. Russia not only expects gold to be part of the system, it is in strong position to make that happen by working with China, Turkey and Iran in what I call the new “Axis of Gold.”

    No one country can erase the dollar’s advantage by itself, but collectively these actors can build a non-dollar based payments system and non-dollar reserves that escape the reach of U.S. sanctions. This movement has started small but could gain momentum suddenly and unexpectedly.  The bottom line is that the weaponized dollar will soon be a victim of its own success. 

    While the U.S. was bullying the world with dollars, the world was quietly preparing a new nondollar system. The U.S. wanted diplomatic and military clout and it got it with the dollar. But as the saying goes, “Be careful what you wish for.”

              GERMANY - Fascist marches and antifascist resistance      Cache   Translate Page      

    September 11, 2018
    On Sunday, August the  26th, a young man with cuban roots was allegedly stabbed by two refugees in Chemnitz. He was an antifascist that had liked Facebook pages like „Fuck Nazis“. Despite these facts, this sparked Nazis, fascists, hooligans and many other „patriots“ to march the streets in the hundreds for the next two days, resembling a pogrom, because they mourned a „german that had been killed by refugees“.
    During these protests and in the following week there were many antifascists counter demonstrations called „Chemnitz Nazifrei“ (Chemnitz free of Nazis). On Monday, September 3rd, multiple famous Punk and Hip Hop artists organized a concert against these fascist marches called #wirsindmehr (there are more of us) in the city.Around 65.000 people attended the free concert against racism and many antifascist slogans were shouted.
    The singer of the band "Kraftklub" said before performing: "We're not naive. We're not under the illusion that you hold a concert and then the world is saved," he said. "But sometimes it's important to show that you're not alone.".

    There are not only some "Nazi-groups" on the streets in Chemnitz, the state rascism especially in the last years produced a situation like this. The fascists on the street have no opposite interest than the german imperialist state. It's not only a struggle against "Nazis", it's a struggle against Imperialism and fascism

              Florida Historical Markers - The Tequesta      Cache   Translate Page      
    The Tequesta Indians and their ancestors lived and traveled along the New River for at least 5000 years. The Tequesta were Native Americans that lived in Southeast Florida in an area that extended from Boca Raton to Key West encompassing the Everglades, the Keys and parts of Florida Bay. Several thousand Tequesta may have lived in the area when the Spanish arrived in the 16th century, but in 1763, when Spain ceded Florida to England, less than 300 Indians survived - the entire culture victim of European diseases and English-sponsored slave raids. The last of the Tequesta moved to Cuba, leaving much of South Florida unpopulated.
    Using dugout canoes the Tequesta traversed the length of the New River which provided easy access to the Everglades and the Atlantic Ocean. The banks of the river provided high, dry grounds for habitation. Numerous camps and villages occurred along the New River including a large village site at this location.
    Archaeologists in 2010 discovered artifacts here made of animal bone and shell. They included axes made from the lips of conch shells, and pottery shards from broken bowls. These artifacts are evidence of a Tequesta Indian village dating from AD 800 to 1200. Also uncovered were well-preserved animal bones and shell refuse indicating that the Tequesta were fishing and hunting along the river and as far east as the barrier island of present day Fort Lauderdale Beach.

              Chuyến thăm lịch sử của lãnh tụ Fidel Castro tới Việt Nam      Cache   Translate Page      

    Cách đây 45 năm, khi chiến trường Quảng Trị vẫn còn nồng thuốc súng, từ bên kia bán cầu, lãnh tụ Fidel Castro bất chấp mọi khó khăn, nguy hiểm đến thăm vùng đất vừa được giải phóng của tỉnh Quảng Trị.

    Hình ảnh ông phất cao lá cờ của Mặt trận Dân tộc giải phóng miền Nam tại cao điểm 241, nơi còn khét mùi thuốc súng và ngổn ngang xác xe tăng, đại bác của quân địch và câu nói “Vì Việt Nam, Cuba sẵn sàng hiến dâng cả máu của mình” sẽ mãi là biểu tượng cao đẹp của tình đoàn kết anh em gắn bó, thủy chung giữa hai dân tộc và nhân dân hai nước.

    “Vì Việt Nam, Cuba sẵn sàng hiến dâng cả máu của mình”

    Trong suốt sự nghiệp lãnh đạo cách mạng Cuba, lãnh tụ Fidel Castro luôn dành những tình cảm đặc biệt cho đất nước và nhân dân Việt Nam. Cuba và lãnh tụ Fidel Castro luôn là quốc gia đi đầu trong phong trào ủng hộ cuộc đấu tranh giành độc lập dân tộc cũng như công cuộc xây dựng đất nước của nhân dân Việt Nam.

    Cuba là nước đầu tiên công nhận Mặt trận Dân tộc Giải phóng miền Nam Việt Nam (tháng 12/1961), là nước đầu tiên thành lập Ủy ban đoàn kết với Việt Nam (tháng 9/1963), và là nước duy nhất thành lập sứ quán bên cạnh Mặt trận Dân tộc Giải phóng miền Nam Việt Nam tại vùng giải phóng (tháng 7/1967)… Và cũng là nước đầu tiên và duy nhất có nguyên thủ tới thăm vùng giải phóng miền Nam Việt Nam ngay cả khi vùng đất này còn chưa yên tiếng súng.

    Với mong muốn được tận mắt chứng kiến chiến trường ác liệt và cuộc chiến đấu anh dũng của nhân dân Việt Nam, gặp gỡ đồng bào và chiến sỹ miền Nam, Fidel Castro, khi đó là Bí thư Thứ nhất Đảng cộng sản Cuba, kiêm Thủ tướng và Tổng tư lệnh các lực lượng vũ trang cách mạng Cuba, bất chấp hiểm nguy, vào thăm vùng tuyến lửa Quảng Trị.

    Tại cao điểm 241 Tân Lâm, vốn là căn cứ lớn của Mỹ mới được ta giải phóng, nơi vẫn còn ngổn ngang xác xe tăng, thiết giáp của địch, Fidel Castro phất cao lá cờ của Mặt trận Dân tộc Giải phóng miền Nam Việt Nam và dõng dạc hô to “Các đồng chí hãy mang lá cờ bách chiến bách thắng này cắm tại Sài Gòn!”, “Hẹn gặp lại tại Sài Gòn sau ngày miền Nam hoàn toàn giải phóng!"

    Cũng chính tại đây, Fidel Castro đã nói câu lịch sử: “Vì Việt Nam, Cuba sẵn sàng hiến dâng cả máu của mình.”

    Có thể khẳng định, chuyến thăm lịch sử này đã đem đến cho nhân dân Việt Nam tình đoàn kết và sự ủng hộ quý báu của đất nước Cuba anh em; khích lệ và động viên cuộc đấu tranh của đồng bào, chiến sỹ ở Miền Nam cũng như trên cả nước.

    Chuyến thăm này tiếp nối những hành động giúp đỡ đầy ý nghĩa của Cuba dành cho Việt Nam thời kỳ này: viện trợ đường, cung cấp thiết bị và cử chuyên gia giúp xây dựng đường mòn Hồ Chí Minh, xây dựng tặng nhân dân Việt Nam nhiều công trình kinh tế-xã hội để khắc phục hậu quả của chiến tranh…

    Chuyến thăm này đã trở thành biểu tượng của chủ nghĩa anh hùng cách mạng, của quan hệ Việt Nam-Cuba thủy chung, trong sáng, của phong trào quốc tế rộng lớn đoàn kết và ủng hộ Việt Nam.



    Những lần đến thăm Việt Nam của lãnh tụ Fidel Castro

    Sau chuyến thăm lịch sử tháng 9/1973, Fidel Castro còn có thêm hai chuyến thăm Việt Nam vào các năm 1995 và 2003.

    Trong chuyến thăm chính thức Việt Nam lần thứ hai vào tháng 12/1995, Chủ tịch Fidel Castro khẳng định, nhân dân Việt Nam mãi là những người bạn, người anh em gần gũi, thân thiết của nhân dân Cuba và tin tưởng chắc chắn rằng tình đoàn kết, hữu nghị và sự hợp tác toàn diện giữa Cuba và Việt Nam sẽ không ngừng được củng cố và phát triển.

    Tháng 2/2003, Chủ tịch Fidel Castro có chuyến thăm lần thứ ba và cũng là chuyến thăm cuối cùng tới Việt Nam. Trong chuyến thăm này, Chủ tịch Fidel Castro phát biểu: "Các đồng chí Việt Nam luôn nói lời cảm ơn tình đoàn kết của nhân dân Cuba đối với cuộc đấu tranh anh hùng của dân tộc Việt Nam. Nhưng tôi xin nói rằng, chính chúng tôi là những người phải cảm ơn Việt Nam bởi chiến công đã đánh thắng một kẻ thù hùng mạnh, bởi những gì mà chiến thắng đó đã đem lại cho các dân tộc bị áp bức và bóc lột trên thế giới..."

    Đối với Việt Nam, lãnh tụ Cuba Fidel Castro mãi là người bạn lớn, người đồng chí và người anh em vô cùng thân thiết. Ông đã được Đảng và Nhà nước Việt Nam trao tặng Huân chương sao vàng vào năm 1982 và Huân chương Hồ Chí Minh vào năm 1989.

    45 năm sau chuyến thăm Việt Nam của lãnh tụ Fidel Castro, tinh thần chia sẻ ấy vẫn tiếp tục truyền cảm hứng cho các thế hệ người dân hai nước để luôn nhớ rằng trong mỗi trái tim người Cuba và Việt Nam luôn khắc sâu câu nói: "Vì Việt Nam, Cuba sẵn sàng hiến dâng cả máu của mình"./.


              Flying into Cancun for two weeks. What do you recommend?       Cache   Translate Page      
    A close friend and I are flying into the Cancun airport at the end of the month. We have two weeks, Saturday to Saturday (to Saturday?) and there's so much to see and do. My friend will be working remotely during the day for all but 4 of the weekdays we're there, around the weekend in the middle. Where should we go and what should we do?

    We're going at the end of this month, for two weeks, Saturday to Saturday (to Saturday?) and there's so much to see and do. My friend will be working remotely during the day for all but 4 of the weekdays we're there, around the weekend in the middle. We will be renting a car. Budgetwise, we want to spend less than $100 per night total.

    We want to explore a few different places: Isla Mujeres, Chichen Itza, Tulum, Sian Ka'an, and I just found Xcacel, Isla Holbox, and Akumal.
    We want to do certain things: SCUBA diving though neither is certified, exploring cenotes, and, if possible, turtles! (do we need a red light?)

    I know I dumped a lot here but that's what I got. I looked through older threads on here, but they were pretty old and not quite what I'm looking for. Any suggestions of specific places, hotels, tour companies, restaurants/food stands, etc. would be much appreciated!

              Drake y Cardi B encabezan lista de nominados a premios AMA      Cache   Translate Page      

    NUEVA YORK.- El rap ha dominado los últimos años las listas pop y los servicios de streaming, y esto se reflejó el miércoles al anunciarse los nominados a los American Music Awards.

    Drake y Cardi B encabezan la lista de nominados con ocho menciones cada uno.

    Drake, con su exitoso álbum “Scorpion” y tres No. 1, competirá por el premio al artista del año con Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, Imagine Dragons y Post Malone.

    El rapero y cantante XXXTentacion, un astro en ascenso antes de su asesinato en junio, fue postulado a mejor artista nuevo y álbum favorito de soul/R&B por su debut de 2017, “17”.

    Sorpresivamente, “Invasion of Privacy” de Cardi B no figuró en el apartado de álbum favorito de rap/hip hop. Los nominados incluyen a Drake, Malone y Lil Uzi Vert.

    La sensación cubano-estadounidense Camila Cabello recibió cinco postulaciones gracias a su megaéxito “Havana” con Young Thug, y tres astros del reggaetón se medirán por el premio al artista latino favorito: el colombiano J Balvin y los puertorriqueños Daddy Yankee y Ozuna.

    La ceremonia de los premios AMA se transmitirá en vivo el 9 de octubre desde el Teatro Microsoft en Los Ángeles.

    BOLIVIANO ASEGURA QUE INVENTÓ EL VAR Y DEMANDARÁ A LA FIFA POR 100 MILLONES DE DÓLARES

    El ingeniero Fernando Méndez dice que empezó el proyecto en 2004 y que incluso se lo envió a la FIFA para que lo estudiaran. Se reunirá con el presidente Evo Morales para requerir apoyo.

    Tele 13 de Chile (www.t13.cl)
                                                                                  
    El pasado Mundial de Rusia 2018 marcó la implementación final en competiciones FIFA del Video Assistant Referee (VAR).
    La nueva herramienta del ente rector del fútbol, que tiene por objetivo bajar al mínimo los errores que pudiesen cometer los árbitros durante los partidos, ya está siendo implementado en las principales ligas del mundo.
    Sin embargo, hay alguien que alega ser el inventor de este instrumento y pide una compensación a la FIFA por esto.
    Se trata del boliviano Fernando Méndez Rivero, ingeniero de 63 años y quien asegura haber inventado el proyecto de video asistencia de arbitraje: "Mi idea fue instalar seis cámaras por el campo. Es suficiente para cubrir todo. Era una cámara detrás del arco, una en la línea lateral derecha y otra a la izquierda. Y eso se repetía al otro lado del césped. Además, el árbitro usaría un micrófono y podría ver las imágenes cuando sea necesario", sostuvo según consignó Olé.
    Por lo mismo, pedirá al máximo organismo del fútbol mundial una indemnización aproximada de 100 millones de dólares por derechos de autor, considerando que solicitará la suma de 500 mil dólares por cada entidad que use la herramienta en cada competición que organice.
    "Es 100% plagio. Después de que terminé el proyecto, registré la patente en el SENAPI (Servicio Nacional de Propiedad Intelectual) y lo envié a la FIFA y a todas las federaciones nacionales y regionales", aseguró.
    Méndez detalló que la idea nació en 2004 cuando fue a ver un partido de su equipo favorito, Oriente Petrolero, contra su clásico rival del Blooming de Santa Cruz, encuentro que fue desnivelado por un penal a favor de estos últimos a dos minutos del final. "Volví a casa enojado, me senté en la computadora y empecé a dibujar el proyecto en el que trabajé durante siete u ocho meses", dijo.
    El ingeniero dice que se intentó contactar con la FIFA varias veces pero que solo obtuvo respuesta una vez en 2012, cuando Ricardo Teixeira, en ese entonces presidente de la Confederación Brasileña de Fútbol (CBF), le comunicó que analizarían la viabilidad de su proyecto y que lo apoyarían, pero no volvieron a responder y el VAR empezó a ser utilizado.
    Debido al complejo escenario judicial que enfrentaría en caso de materializar la demanda, Méndez se reunirá con el presidente de Bolivia, Evo Morales, para requerir su apoyo y anuncia que en caso de ganar, la mitad de la indemnización la donará a los pobres, el servicio social y obras de evangelización.





    EE.UU. ACUSA A BOLIVIA Y VENEZUELA DE FALLAR EN LA LUCHA CONTRA EL NARCOTRÁFICO

    VOA Noticias de EEUU (www.voanoticias.com)
                                                                                                            
    En un memorando presidencial dirigido al Secretario de Estado, Donald Trump señaló a Bolivia y Venezuela como países que no han cumplido con los tratados internacionales antinarcóticos y que no han realizado los esfuerzos necesarios en los últimos doce meses.
    En el documento oficial emitido este martes, Trump también determina que el apoyo a promoción de la democracia en Venezuela es vital para los intereses de Estados Unidos.
    Trump también señala como países productores o tránsitos de drogas a varios en la región, como es el caso de Colombia, Costa Rica, República Dominicana, Nicaragua, Perú y Panamá. Sin embargo, señala que estar en esa lista, a diferencia de Bolivia y Venezuela, no subestima los esfuerzos de los gobiernos locales para enfrentar el narcotráfico.
    El mandatario explica que este memorando forma parte de la lucha del gobierno estadounidense contra la epidemia de opio que afecta todo el país.
    No es la primera vez que Estados Unidos apunta a Bolivia y Venezuela en una lista similar. En 2017, un reporte señaló que los gobiernos de Nicolás Maduro y Evo Morales permitieron que “el tráfico de droga floreciera dentro de su territorio”.





    LOS AMIGOS DE EVO MORALES

    Una visión general de los países con los cuales el gobierno boliviano ha elegido establecer enlaces privilegiados.

    Media Part de Francia (www.mediapart.fr)

    Conocemos la disputa entre Bolivia y Chile desde la Guerra del Pacífico (1879-1884) porque la victoria chilena llevó a la anexión de la franja marítima boliviana. Desde entonces, los gobernantes bolivianos han continuado proclamando su "derecho al mar", y rompieron relaciones diplomáticas con su vecino en 1962. Recientemente, el gobierno de Evo Morales se ha apoderado de la Corte Internacional de Justicia en La Haya. propósito de obligar a Chile a negociar el otorgamiento de acceso boliviano al Océano Pacífico. La decisión del tribunal debe conocerse pronto.
    Pero la diplomacia del gobierno de Morales está especialmente marcada por la condena sin apelación del imperialismo norteamericano. Lo llevó a romper relaciones diplomáticas con los Estados Unidos en septiembre de 2008, después de que expulsó a la Agencia de los Estados Unidos para el Desarrollo Internacional (USAID) y la Agencia Antidrogas (DEA) del país.
    Al acusar al gobierno israelí de "genocidio" contra los palestinos, también cortó las relaciones con Israel en 2009; un estado que describió como "terrorista" en 2014.
    Cuba y Venezuela
    A cambio, Bolivia ha establecido nuevas alianzas. En primer lugar con Cuba y Venezuela, dos países cuyos jefes de Estado ya tenían relaciones con el dirigente sindical y político Evo Morales antes de su ingreso a la presidencia del país. Recordemos que luego de ganar las elecciones presidenciales a fines de 2005, e incluso antes de tomar posesión de su cargo, comenzó una gira internacional, enteramente financiada por el gobierno venezolano, con Cuba por primera vez.
    El primer acuerdo oficial entre Venezuela y Bolivia, que anuncia todos los demás, se firma a fines de enero de 2006, en el Palacio quemado de La Paz, en presencia de Hugo Chávez. Según los dos jefes de Estado, Bolivia está entrando en una nueva era en su historia uniéndose a la iniciativa socio-económica de la Alianza Bolivariana para los Pueblos de Nuestra América (ALBA); primer paso de una trayectoria destinada a cambiar el modelo neoliberal de desarrollo del país. Todo el dispositivo se confirma en La Habana el 29 de abril de 2006, bajo el nombre del Acuerdo Cuba-Venezuela-Bolivia sobre el Tratado de Comercio de los Pueblos (TCP) y el ALBA.
    Estos dos países siguen siendo socios comerciales menores y el comercio de Bolivia con los países del ALBA-TCP [2] pesa muy poco: en 2017, representó solo el 1,9% del PIB. valor de las exportaciones y 0,6% de las importaciones.
    El más significativo y el más importante está obviamente en otra parte: por un lado, bajo la guía de Cuba, pero con el financiamiento y el apoyo logístico venezolano, una serie de cooperación más o menos oculta en términos de propaganda, el control de la información y los medios de comunicación, la asistencia policial y militar, incluso el tráfico de drogas, y el alineamiento diplomático sistemático de las posiciones diplomáticas de cada uno.
    Actualmente, Bolivia es el único país de América del Sur que apoya al gobierno de Nicolás Maduro. En abril de 2017, mientras presidía el Consejo Permanente de la Organización de Estados Americanos (OEA), suspendió una sesión extraordinaria para analizar la situación en Venezuela. La sesión finalmente tuvo lugar en su ausencia, y ella declaró la suspensión de los poderes de la Asamblea Nacional impuesta por el gobierno de Nicolás Maduro contraria al orden constitucional democrático.
    Evo Morales también apoya al gobierno nicaragüense de Daniel Ortega. En junio pasado, se indignó por el informe de la Comisión Interamericana de Derechos Humanos (CIDH) sobre la violencia perpetrada por las fuerzas de seguridad y los grupos paramilitares contra manifestantes que, desde Abril, se opuso a las reformas del sistema de seguridad social [6]; una represión que causó 212 muertos y 1,337 heridos según el informe en cuestión.
    Irán
    Alentado por Hugo Chávez, el gobierno boliviano también ha forjado vínculos con la República Islámica de Irán. Ahmadinejad fue recibido por primera vez por Morales a finales de agosto de 2007. En su declaración conjunta de los dos líderes propusieron para "construir un mundo multipolar" y dio la bienvenida al surgimiento de gobiernos Sudamericanos hostiles al neoliberalismo. Defendieron el derecho de los países a desarrollar la energía nuclear con fines pacíficos y la legalización de la hoja de coca, "el derecho inalienable del pueblo boliviano". Desde entonces, ambos países se han basado sistemáticamente en el nivel internacional.

    Cuando Evo Morales inauguró en Warnes (Santa Cruz) 31 de mayo de 2011, la Escuela Militar de Defensa de la Alianza Bolivariana para los Pueblos de Nuestra América (ALBA), que tiene como objetivo ayudar a fortalecer los lazos y la integración de los países miembros de la alianza, la ceremonia fue seguida por representaciones diplomáticas de Cuba, Venezuela, Panamá e Irán.
    Rusia
    Evo Morales es el primer presidente de Bolivia de haber visitado Rusia, hizo el viaje en febrero de 2009 y desde entonces el gobierno de Bolivia ha firmado varios acuerdos de cooperación comercial, energética, militar (acuerdo de setiembre de 2016), y el control contra el tráfico de drogas, aproximadamente 16 según el embajador ruso en La Paz en enero de 2018.
    Los más importantes son la explotación y comercialización de hidrocarburos y la construcción de un centro de investigación nuclear multipropósito por parte de la empresa soviética ROSATOM. Situado en la ciudad de El Alto, este complejo incluirá un reactor nuclear, una instalación experimental a los rayos gamma, un ciclotrón y un laboratorio de investigación nuclear y la instrucción. Su costo se estima en $300 millones. Su construcción debería comenzar pronto.
    Además de la multiplicación de reuniones entre funcionarios de ambos países, su estrecho vínculo se manifiesta por el apoyo incondicional de Bolivia a la posición de Rusia se toma dentro de la ONU. Su voz lleva incluso más que en junio de 2016, Bolivia fue elegido miembro no permanente de la Asamblea General del Consejo de Seguridad de la ONU para el período 2017-2018.
    El representante de Bolivia se negó a votar a favor de mantener la integridad del territorio de Ucrania y para condenar la anexión de Crimea por Rusia en marzo del 2014 (con otros tres países del ALBA: Cuba, Venezuela y Nicaragua).
    En abril de 2017, el embajador boliviano en las Naciones Unidas condenó enérgicamente el ataque aéreo de los Estados Unidos contra Siria en conjunto con Rusia. Y en abril de 2018, Bolivia fue el único de los quince miembros del Consejo de Seguridad para apoyar el veto soviético sobre el establecimiento de una comisión internacional para verificar el uso de armas químicas en Siria.
    En marzo de 2018, se denunció la expulsión de diplomáticos rusos de los EE.UU. y Europa después de ex espía ruso, Sergei Skripal e hija habían sido envenenados en el Reino Unido.
    Bielorrusia
    En septiembre de 2013, Evo Morales viajó a Minsk, capital de Bielorrusia, Alexander Lukashenko, para firmar con un acuerdo de cooperación en la agricultura, la minería y la defensa. Juntos hacen un homenaje póstumo a Hugo Chávez, que fue el origen del acercamiento entre los dos países.
    El acuerdo de cooperación "militar técnica" especifica 13 julio de 2016. Se trata de la producción, la modernización, reparación y entrega de los procesos técnicos y armas en tres áreas: la aviación, defensa aérea, y 'Ejército de Tierra. También incluye transferencias de tecnología en radio y electrónica, la instalación de medios de comunicación y colaboración de inteligencia y guerra electrónica, con un intercambio de especialistas entre los dos países. Se complementa con una ley aprobada por la Asamblea el 3 de abril de 2018 en la que ambos países se comprometen a desarrollar y producir armas de guerra en Bolivia.
    China
    En septiembre de 2011, Bolivia y China firmaron seis acuerdos de cooperación para promover proyectos conjuntos en agricultura, minería, comunicaciones, energía, inversión y seguridad alimentaria. El símbolo más elocuente de esta cooperación fue puesto en órbita a finales de 2013, el satélite de comunicaciones Tupac Katari financiado por un crédito de 250 millones de Gobierno Popular y desde 2014 China se convirtió en el primer país exportador a Bolivia (18% de las importaciones nacionales totales) y su primer país acreedor: 80% del saldo de la deuda bilateral en 2017 (19% en 2011).
    El ejército boliviano ha utilizado equipos chinos durante décadas, incluidos aviones de combate y de transporte, helicópteros y vehículos blindados. Durante Morales ordena que ha comprado dos aviones en 2007, el equipo de un batallón de ingeniería en 2010 y seis helicópteros en 2011, con préstamos del Eximbank de China. Periódicamente, la República Popular de China dona municiones y equipos de segunda mano: gafas de visión nocturna, cascos, varios vehículos ... Algunos no valen mucho. "Los expertos bolivianos consultaron ... dijeron que los vehículos chinos raramente duraban más de cinco años".
    Guinea Ecuatorial
    En noviembre de 2017, Morales recibió con gran ceremonia el presidente de Guinea Ecuatorial, Teodoro Obiang, a la que atribuye el honor más alto del país: El cóndor de los Andes ", en reconocimiento por su contribución al fortalecimiento de las relaciones amistosas y de cooperación entre los dos países". Este jefe de estado no es cualquiera: en el poder desde 1979, es el campeón de la longevidad presidencial.
    El acuerdo de cooperación firmado vaga entre los dos países sólo se está vistiendo un mensaje golpeado por Evo Morales desde que preside el país: el deseo de aferrarse al poder en nombre de la revolución Indigenista: "Desde la resistencia de 500 años al ejercicio del poder durante 500 años", afirmó en su discurso inaugural de enero de 2006; un anuncio que ha sido reiterado muchas veces desde entonces.

    Y en estas lo vemos de loco sabrosón y de filósofo. Lo que sí es muy objetivo es que Pedro Juan Gutiérrez y Leonardo Padura son los escritores cubanos que hoy día venden sus libros como pan caliente en toda Cuba (todo lo que se les publica se agota bastante rápido). Y sería justo agregar al recientemente desaparecido Daniel Chavarría, que no era cubano, pero se lo creía y también lo dejó saber públicamente. Durante muchísimos años vivió en la isla.

    And so the Golden Golem of Greatness re-enters the hall of mirrors that Syria has become. The US intelligence “community” has informed the US Media that Syrian President Assad is planning a new gas attack on Idlib Province, where a ragtag army of US-backed “rebels” (ISIS, etc) remain holed up against Assad’s forces backed by Russian air support. Have we seen this movie before?

    Is Mr. Assad truly that dumb? — since the last time a gas attack was alleged (and actually never proven), Mr. Trump averred that he would attack Syria. And what did he even mean by that? Send a barrel bomb down the Assad family chimney, or just blow up more stuff on the ground? And for what? To birth another failed state in the Middle East (just what the world needs), or perhaps start World War Three with Russia? (Ditto, with a cherry on top.)

              Cuba kỷ niệm chuyến thăm lịch sử của lãnh tụ Fidel tới Việt Nam      Cache   Translate Page      

    Ngày 12/9, Đảng và Nhà nước Cuba đã tổ chức lễ míttinh kỷ niệm chính thức 45 năm chuyến thăm đầu tiên của lãnh tụ cách mạng Fidel Castro tới Việt Nam, với sự tham gia của khoảng 400 đại diện các bộ, ngành, đoàn thể, các nhà hoạt động, các nhà ngoại giao và bạn bè với Việt Nam.

    Phát biểu trong buổi lễ, Đại sứ Việt Nam tại Cuba Nguyễn Trung Thành khẳng định không có một mối quan hệ song phương nào đặc biệt như giữa Việt Nam và Cuba, mọi thế hệ người dân Việt Nam đã và sẽ luôn trân quý một Cuba anh hùng và một lãnh tụ Fidel huyền thoại.

    Ôn lại sự kiện mang tính dấu mốc trong quan hệ song phương này, Đại sứ Nguyễn Trung Thành nêu bật việc bất chấp hiểm nguy, Tổng tư lệnh Fidel Castro kiên quyết giữ mong muốn cháy bỏng được trực tiếp chứng kiến chiến trường, thăm đồng bào và chiến sỹ miền Nam và đã trở thành vị nguyên thủ duy nhất vượt vĩ tuyến 17, thăm một vùng giải phóng tại miền Nam trong suốt thời gian kháng chiến chống Mỹ của dân tộc Việt Nam.


    Giơ cao những tấm ảnh về chuyến đi lịch sử của lãnh tụ Fidel Castro tới Quảng Trị, ông Nguyễn Trung Thành nhấn mạnh những lời nói và hành động của lãnh tụ Fidel đã trở thành nguồn động viên, cổ vũ tinh thần vô giá cho cán bộ, chiến sỹ và nhân dân Việt Nam trong cuộc đấu tranh thiêng liêng theo tiếng gọi của Bác Hồ “Không có gì quý hơn độc lập, tự do."



    Đại sứ Việt Nam tại Cuba khẳng định những câu nói bất hủ xuất phát từ trái tim và những hành động cụ thể của lãnh tụ Fidel vì Việt Nam đã trở thành biểu tượng sáng ngời vượt thời gian, việc kỷ niệm chuyến thăm của ông tới Việt Nam tháng 9/1973 đồng thời cũng là sự tôn vinh mối quan hệ đoàn kết, hữu nghị truyền thống mẫu mực và hợp tác toàn diện giữa hai dân tộc.

    Đại sứ Nguyễn Trung Thành bày tỏ tin tưởng, dưới ánh sáng tư tưởng bất diệt của Chủ tịch Hồ Chí Minh và lãnh tụ Fidel Castro, thế hệ trẻ Việt Nam và Cuba sẽ tiếp tục viết lên những trang sử vẻ vang của mối quan hệ hai nước.

    Ủy viên Bộ Chính trị, Bí thư Trung ương Đảng Cộng sản Cuba Mercedes López Acea nhắc lại rằng từ rất lâu trong lịch sử, hai dân tộc Việt Nam và Cuba đã có những sự tương đồng, trùng khớp trong tư tưởng và khát vọng độc lập, tự do, bất chấp khoảng cách về địa lý khi ở hai phía đối diện của địa cầu.

    Ông Mercedes López khẳng định từ nguồn gốc đó, hai dân tộc đã trở thành những đồng chí kiên trung trong chiến đấu, cả trên chiến trường lẫn trên mặt trận tư tưởng, cả trong và sau cuộc kháng chiến chống Mỹ cứu nước, từng đưa Việt Nam trở thành hình mẫu cho cả thế giới về đấu tranh vì độc lập dân tộc.


    Bất chấp những diễn biến ngày càng phức tạp trên trường quốc tế và những mối nguy hiểm đang đe dọa cả nhân loại, Bí thư Trung ương Đảng Cộng sản Cuba Mercedes López tin tưởng nhân dân Việt Nam và Cuba sẽ tiếp tục con đường xây dựng xã hội chủ nghĩa thịnh vượng và bền vững của mình, dưới định hướng tư tưởng của những anh hùng và liệt sỹ của cả hai nước và sẽ tiếp tục phát huy tình cảm son sắt trước sau như một gắn kết hai dân tộc anh em.

    Cũng trong buổi lễ, các khán giả được thưởng thức hoạt cảnh “Một chuyến dạo chơi qua xứ sở An Nam” được đoàn văn nghệ thiếu nhi Tổ ong nhỏ (Colmenita) dựng theo tác phẩm văn học kinh điển cùng tên từ thế kỷ 19 của Anh hùng dân tộc Cuba José Martí, cùng những tiết mục nghệ thuật ca ngợi tình yêu quê hương đất nước của các nghệ sỹ, sinh viên Cuba và Việt Nam.

    Tại Cuba, loạt hoạt động kỷ niệm 45 năm chuyến thăm đầu tiên của lãnh tụ cách mạng Fidel Castro tới Việt Nam sẽ kết thúc vào ngày 17/9./.

              Comment on Solving Italy’s Immigration Crisis by backwardsevolution      Cache   Translate Page      
    If the economic migrants from Africa (yes, economic) were actually trying to flee their own country because of war, wouldn't you think they'd just go to the country next door, or maybe two countries over? Instead, they are travelling hundreds and thousands of miles to get to Libya. Now having arrived in Libya, the narrative quickly became that they were being enslaved, the women were being raped (kind of like the babies being thrown out of the incubators story). According to U.N. refugee law, they're supposed to take refuge in the next safe country, which would be Tunisia. Yes, still in Africa. We've all seen the boatloads of people coming from Africa. They are almost exclusively young males. Now, what's the difference between going to Tunisia and going to Europe? Could the benefits they receive have anything to do with it? Although the West has been unfair to Africa (stripping their resources, causing wars) not every country in Africa is or has been involved in a Western-backed war, and not every country can blame their abysmal living conditions on the West. With all the bad the West has done, they have done a lot of good too, like provide medical technology, which has gone a long way to decrease infant mortality, immunizations, clean drinking water, financial aid, and continual food aid. A good deal of the problem has to do with over-population. "54 countries make up the continent of Africa, and while population growth is relatively low in some areas, countries such as Nigeria and Uganda are increasing at an advanced rate. In most countries in the continent, the population growth is in excess of 2% every year. In addition, there is a high proportion of younger people within the Africa population as a whole, with reports that 41% of the African population is under the age of 15." By the turn of the century, Nigeria is predicted to have over a BILLION people. Nigeria! Africa's population is predicted to exceed FOUR BILLION by the turn of the century. And a good deal of the problems in Africa are caused by corruption by their own leaders, as well as tribal wars. And look at what happened in Zimbabwe. They kicked out the white farmers, starved, then went through hyperinflation where their money was worth nothing. South Africa is headed in the same direction. The road to hell is paved with good intentions, isn't it? Now, why would the E.U. have sent out their ships to rescue these migrants? They could have just sent troops into Libya. After all, they did just invade and destroy Libya, didn't they? What, it's all of a sudden taboo to enter someone else's country? It never stopped them before. The U.N.H.C.R. has a brand new program called I believe (don't quote me) the "Migration Compact". The program explicitly WANTS migration from Third World countries into First World countries. It's good for "economics", or so it says in their literature. Read up on it because it's the new thing, although you won't find it mentioned in the New York Times. Migrants come in, the existing citizens pay for their benefits and welfare, the corporations and farmers get cheap labor, wages are held down for the host residents, the migrants then send money home (called remittances) to their home countries, the home countries buy new TV's, for example, from the multinational corporations. See? Isn't this fun? You get to lose your culture because the flavor of the day is "good for economics". Mexico currently gets more money from remittances sent home than from the sale of Mexican oil! I believe $30 billion/year is sent home from the U.S. to Mexico in the form of remittances. Meanwhile, the American citizens, some of whom are having a hard time, are paying for this. Imagine if those tax dollars remained in the U.S.!!! No, something else is going on beyond just people fleeing oppression. And now the Left doesn't know what to do? Perhaps if they did the "right" thing to begin with, they wouldn't have the problem? Do they never see long-term? Help people where they are, in their own country, with their own customs and traditions. And, yes, I agree that none of the wars in the Middle East should be occurring. The West needs to get out of Syria and help rebuild the country, along with Iraq and Yemen. Get out!

              Blake Snell blanquea por siete entradas y los Rays derrotaron a los Indios      Cache   Translate Page      

    ST. PETERSBURG, FLORIDA, EE.UU. Blake Snell cubrió siete entradas sin permitir imparables, se acreditó su 19na victoria para consolidarse como líder de las mayores y lideró a los Rays de Tampa Bay a la victoria el miércoles por 3-1 ante los Indios de Cleveland.

    Snell (19-5) perdió su intento por un juego sin hits cuando el dominicano José Ramírez abrió la séptima entrada con su 38vo jonrón de la temporada. El zurdo logró su séptima victoria seguida, ponchó a nueve y entregó dos pasaportes en siete capítulos. Ha permitido dos carreras limpias o menos en 16 aperturas seguidas.

    Chaz Roe y el venezolano José Alvarado sacaron tres outs respectivamente, completando un juego de un hit. Alvarado sumó su octavo salvamento en 11 oportunidades.

    El número mágico de Cleveland para hacerse con un tercer título consecutivo de la División Central de la Liga Americana se mantuvo en tres.

    Ji-Man Choi conectó un vuelacerca de dos carreras en el primer inning ante el venezolano Carlos Carrasco (16-9), y luego vio pasar un lanzamiento bien ceñido en la sexta entrada y miró fijamente por rato hacia el montículo. Choi pego el jonrón para definir la victoria ante Brad Hand en la novena entrada el lunes por la noche.

    Por los Indios, los puertorriqueños Francisco Lindor de 4-0 y Roberto Pérez de 1-0. El cubano Yandy Díaz de 4-0. Los dominicanos Ramírez de 4-1 con una anotada y una remolcada, Edwin Encarnación de 2-0, Melky Cabrera de 3-0 y Erik González de 2-0.

    Por los Rays, el dominicano Willy Adames de 1-0. El venezolano Jesús Sucre de 3-0.

              This is what we know about the mysterious noise attacks on US diplomats, which some officials are now blaming on Russia      Cache   Translate Page      

    American Embassy Cuba

    Dizziness. Ringing of the ears. Piercing sounds that suddenly disappear when a door is opened. These are just some of the mysterious symptoms reported by American diplomats in Cuba starting in 2016.

    Since then, continuing investigations led by intelligence agencies, scientists and the State Department have become an intricate "whodunnit" with widely varying accounts of the possible causes — and perpetrators — of what were almost immediately labeled as attacks against U.S. personnel.

    Officially, the State Department maintains it is still investigating the matter. NBC has reported that officials within US intelligence agencies believe that Russia is to blame.

    Dizzy in paradise

    Americans in CubaIn 2017, the State Department began investigating a string of complaints from diplomats in Havana. Their symptoms ranged from dizziness and headaches to cognitive disfunction. Those affected also said the symptoms began during or after they heard sounds, similar to those made by cicada bugs, while in their homes or hotel rooms, and felt pressure effects similar to those experienced in a moving car with the windows slightly open.

    The DOS review showed signs of "neurotrauma," but was otherwise inconclusive. A subsequent Department of Defense-sponsored inquiry reported no indications of brain injury, as some experts had suspected

    The Pentagon-sponsored study points to three possible methods which may have been used to disorient the diplomats, but caution that an actual proclamation would be "foolhardy." Perhaps the only solid finding is that drugs and/or toxins were not responsible — although even this comes with a caveat, as an introduced chemical could have been used to exacerbate the effects of an ultrasonic, electromagnetic, or even microwave technology. 

    Although each of the studies has reported disparate and sometimes contradictory information, all the experts seem perplexed by this Sherlock Holmes-like  mystery. While they continue the process of elimination, none have yet to proclaim the likely perpetrator — at least, not officially.

    It's not the rum, it's the Russians

    On Sep. 29, 2017, then-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson ordered the departure of non-emergency embassy personnel assigned to Havana, and concurrently issued an official travel warning to US citizens. Tillerson said in an official statement that the move was not an indictment against Cuba, and the country has continued to deny involvement in the "health attacks" against Americans.

    PutinOfficially, US officials are unwilling to assign blame. But NBC reported yesterday that unofficially, officials with the intelligence agencies conducting the investigation believe Russia is behind the attacks. The officials, who were unnamed in the NBC report, reportedly point to "signals intelligence"— typically referring to intercepted communications like emails, phone calls and web chats — collected during the investigation. 

    The NBC account marks the first time a US official has implicated the Russians,  even anonymously. But suspicions of Russian involvement were raised late last year when, according to a CBS report, an official at the American embassy in Uzbekistan reported an attack similar to those in Cuba. Maria Zakharova, a spokeswoman for the Russian Foreign Ministry, said accusations of Russian involvement were "absurd," and even offered to assist with the investigation in Cuba.

    While U.S. officials have provided no definitive answers regarding the primary suspects in this mystery, there are some precedents to raise suspicions of a foreign adversary wielding sound as a weapon.

    Sound warfare  

    Using sound technologies to disrupt or disorient a target is not an unusual tactic, especially to confuse or terrify enemies.

    US forces, for example, use long-range accoustic devices for a number of purposes, including deterrence and defense. The devices are useful in determining and clarifying the intentions of an approaching unit or vessel at sea, and deterring potential combatants as they approach. 

    In another instance, the International Red Cross reported that U.S. military personnel at Guantanamo Bay sometimes used music as one form of "ill treatment." Its 2007 report alleges the detainees were forced to listen to loud music and other disturbing sounds for extended periods, often causing sleep deprivation. A Department of Defense spokesperson told Politico at the time that such "sensory deprivation" techniques are not authorized for use by U.S. personnel.

    Given the unconventional history of weaponized sound, the "attacks" on Americans in Havana may be a sign of advancements in sound warfare, but most of the investigation's details are still under wraps.

    In June, State Department personnel in Guanzhou, China reported symptoms matching those from the Cuban incidents. The affected personnel were evacuated, and then-Secretary Tillerson announced the department was expanding its investigation.

              “Hari ini hatiku hancur lebur dek kerana sikap anak aku sendiri …” – Anak kantoi menyamun di dobi layan diri, ibu luah perasaan kecewa di Facebook      Cache   Translate Page      


    Hati ibu mana yang tidak berasa kecewa apabila anak yang dikandungkannya itu bergelar seorang penjenayah kemudian hari. Lebih-lebih lagi apabila ibu tersebut telah mencurahkan segala kasih sayang dan memberikan didikan terbaik kepada anaknya itu.

    Itulah apa yang dialami oleh seorang wanita ini setelah anaknya itu menjadi suspek di dalam satu kes samun di sebuah dobi layan diri 24 jam di Sungai Petani, Kedah semalam.




    Menurut laporan Utusan, dalam tempoh 15 minit sahaja, dua lelaki bersenjatakan parang berjaya melarikan wang tunai, barang kemas dan telefon bimbit yang dianggar berjumlah RM14,500 di dua lokasi berbeza.

    Kecewa dengan perbuatan jenayah anaknya itu, wanita tersebut telah meluahkan perasaannya selain meminta maaf pada orang ramai di Facebook. Baca luahan hati beliau:

    Di manakah salah dan silap aku sebagai seorang ibu? Telah aku curahkan segalanya buat anak-anak tersayang. Namun apakah daya segala pengorbanan dan penat lelah seorang ibu tidak diambil peduli.

    Mengapakah jalan mudah yang diambil? Andainya ada salah silapku dalam mendidik mereka sebelum ini, kau berikanlah petunjuk buat mereka agar dibukakan pintu hati mereka kearah kebaikan.

    Sesungguhnya hanya padamu aku meminta pertolongan dan berserah. Kau makbulkanlah permintaan ibu yang daif ini Ya Allah.

    Berikanlah ketenangan dan hidayah buat anak-anak aku agar mereka menjadi anak-anak yang berguna pada masyarakat serta mentaati segala perintahmu Ya Allah.




    Rasanya diri ini tidak kuat lagi untuk menghadapi ujian yang kau timpakan pada diriku ini. Walaupun aku cuba untuk tabah, namun air mata tetap mengalir membasahi pipi.

    Apakan daya sudah suratan takdir begini Sampai bilakah ujianmu buat diriku akan berakhir Ya Allah? Setiap dalam solatku selalu aku panjatkan doa agar diberikan ketenangan dan kesabaran namun hari ini hatiku hancur lebur oleh sikap anak yang tidak berfikir panjang dalam sesuatu yang dilakukan.

    Ya Allah. Aku sudah TIDAK KUAT lagi Ya Allah. Maaf pada semua andai coretan ini menganggu tetapi inilah hakikatnya hatiku sekarang. Memang sudah tidak kuat lagi menerima dugaan.

    Luahan hati wanita itu telah mendapat perhatian netizen, khususnya di kalangan rakan-rakannya sendiri. Ramai yang meminta wanita tersebut supaya bertabah dengan apa yang berlaku selain meminta menyerahkan perkara tersebut kepada pihak berkuasa sahaja.



    Terdapat juga segelintir yang mengecam wanita tersebut dan menyalahkannya kerana tidak pandai mendidik anaknya sendiri namun dipertahankan oleh netizen-netizen lain yang lebih memahami.

              Muere en Mexicali la bebé que fue abandonada a las afueras de un hospital en SLRC      Cache   Translate Page      
    La bebé que fue abandonada a las afueras de un hospital en San Luis Río Colorado, Sonora, fue trasladada de urgencia a Mexicali este martes por la tarde, donde murió 24 horas después.

    Personal del Hospital Materno Infantil de Mexicali confirmó que la bebé fue ingresada a las 14:30 horas, en condiciones graves de salud.

    La pequeña tiene un peso de 1.8 kilogramos y se le estima una gestación de apenas 34 semanas.

    Esta condición de prematura es lo que agravó su condición de salud, pues debió de haber sido puesta en incubadora y recibir atenciones para respirar y terminar su desarrollo.

    Por ser uno de los hospitales con mayor equipamiento para la atención de estos casos, fue que se decidió el traslado de la recién nacida al Materno Infantil en Mexicali.

    Su muerte se declaró a las 15:50 horas de este miércoles, luego de varios intentos de personal médico de reanimarla.

    La bebé fue abandonada el pasado lunes por la noche a las afueras del Hospital Del Noroeste, en San Luis Río Colorado, Sonora, por una mujer que se sospecha no es la madre de la pequeña.

    Aunque agentes de la Fiscalía Estatal de Sonora fueron avisados de los hechos, hasta este miércoles por la noche no se habían presentado a iniciar las investigaciones.

    Si para este jueves no han llegado los agentes, el cuerpo de la bebé será turnado al Servicio Médico Forense en Mexicali y la investigación será iniciada por la Procuraduría General de Justicia del Estado.

              A 20 años del huracán Georges y la destrucción que ocasionó en el país      Cache   Translate Page      

    SANTO DOMINGO. Hay fechas que están escritas en la historia de manera indeleble y el 22 de septiembre de 1998 es una de ellas, al menos para la República Dominicana, por lo fatídica que fue. Ese día el país sufrió los embates del huracán Georges, fenómeno que no solo causó decenas de muertes, sino que prácticamente destruyó parte del territorio nacional con el impacto de sus enfurecidos vientos, los cuales superaban los 200 kilómetros por hora y con oleajes superiores a los 12 pies de altura.

    Georges, séptima tormenta tropical y tercer huracán categoría 3 de la temporada ciclónica de ese año, tocó tierra dominicana en la mañana de ese martes luego de pasar por Puerto Rico. Penetró por la costa Este del país, específicamente por la parte baja de la provincia La Altagracia, y sorprendió a una población que desconocía lo que le esperaba, debido a que la Defensa Civil no avisó a tiempo sobre su llegada y el impacto que tendría por su intensidad.

    La desinformación sobre el fenómeno primó durante ese día por parte de las autoridades.

    Oficialmente las muertes por el huracán están cifradas en 283, pero un cable de la agencia EFE publicado por el periódico Última Hora de fecha 4 de diciembre de ese año señala que la prensa reseñó más de mil muertos. “El resultado de los vientos, el agua y la imprevisión fue devastador y tan confuso como las informaciones oficiales: 827 muertos, según el Gobierno, y más de mil según el cálculo de la prensa” dice.

    De acuerdo con los informes generales sobre Georges, éste causó 604 muertos en todos los países que afectó, la mayoría de ellos en la isla La Española (territorio compartido por la República Dominicana y Haití). Los datos no precisan la cantidad en cada nación. El huracán duró con vida desde el 21 de septiembre hasta el 1 de octubre y durante ese periodo tocó tierra en siete países: Antigua y Barbuda, San Cristóbal y Nieves, Haití, Puerto Rico, Cuba, los Estados Unidos (Florida, Misisipi, Alabama y Louisana) y la República Dominicana.


              A Pair of WWII Bunkers in New Orleans Contains 7 Million Fish      Cache   Translate Page      

    Hidden in a bend of the Mississippi River just south of New Orleans, 29 concrete bunkers lie on a grid of dirt and grass roads. Some hold remnants from the past—40-year-old gas masks and biohazard signs still hang on a wall. Most of them have been abandoned for decades. But inside two of those bunkers, 15 million fish eyes stare at the walls through the glass of their jars. This is the Royal D. Suttkus Fish Collection, the largest collection of preserved fish in the world, and almost no one knows it exists.

    In the Type Room, Dr. Henry Bart—curator of the collection and director of the Tulane Biodiversity Research Institute (TUBRI, which houses the collection)—shows me the rare fish.

    It is a small room, maybe the size of a car, but it is the most important room of the institution because it’s where the holotypes and paratypes are kept. “These are the most important specimens because they bear the names, so if there’s any doubt about what a species is, these are what you consult,” Bart says. Here is the famous pocket shark, a small deep-water marine shark found just a few years ago in the Gulf of Mexico—only the second one known to exist in the world. Here is a harelip sucker collected in 1893. It’s been extinct since that year. The tail fins have eroded off, and I can see its brain. Here is the oldest fish in the collection—a shiny minnow collected in Italy in 1838.

    As Bart picks up jars of fish, the species’ names roll off his tongue as if he grew up fluent in Latin. “We keep these specimens here because we’re trying to protect them from fire…We have to keep a lot of protections in place,” he says. We are surrounded by cinder block—a fortified vault in a hurricane-proof, tornado-proof, bomb-proof, and camouflaged mausoleum. In the main room down the hall, rows and rows of sea-green shelves hold over seven million other fish.

    The history of how the collection came to exist in this place is so storied and mysterious that it could only have happened in the Cajun bayou. Over 260 years ago this swampland was the site of a French, American, and Spanish military fort, after which it was thought to be a plantation, and then later a freedman’s village. The bunkers were built during World War II for the Navy to hold artillery for war ships, and then during the Cold War, the CIA used the property as a training facility. Once the Cold War ended, the government no longer had a use for the property, so they leased it to Tulane University for $1. At first, Tulane used several bunkers for medical research and other natural history collections, but now only the fish remain.

    The Royal D. Suttkus Fish Collection was founded in 1950 when the legendary ichthyologist Royal D. Suttkus, who had a hand in collecting over five million of the collection’s fish, joined the faculty at Tulane. The collection was originally housed on the university’s main campus, but by 1968, it had outgrown its space and was moved to its current bunker-home in Belle Chasse, Louisiana. Before Suttkus retired from his position as director, he asked Bart, who had volunteered for him as a student, to apply for the director job. Bart is one of only around four or five hundred ichthyologists working in the country.

    article-image

    Today the collection has approximately 204,291 lots (or containers of the same species that were collected together) holding between seven and eight million specimens, mostly from the freshwaters of the Gulf South. In the ichthyology world, the Suttkus Collection is a vital resource. Each year, Bart and his team mail hundreds of preserved fish to ichthyologists around the world, and scientists travel to New Orleans to research the larger fish in person. These researchers are examining relationships between species and discovering new ones, learning new information about the deepest parts of the ocean, and studying the effects of global warming. “Essentially, we are the holders of history,” explains Justin Mann, the collections manager.

    In the bunker that holds the large fish, Mann warns me to stand back before opening a tank the size of a truck bed. The evaporated alcohol from the isopropyl that preserves the fish collects at the top of the tank, and the smell is nearly suffocating at first. Creatures far larger than human bodies lie on top of one another inside. Mann puts one rubber glove on before reaching in, but he doesn't bother with the other. “You’re touching that with your bare hands,” I acknowledge. He laughs. In the tank are the largest fish in the collection. Mann holds up each of them to show me—the gar, the sturgeon, the paddlefish. At around eight feet long, the bramble shark is the largest. This one was only the third ever found in the Gulf of Mexico. He grabs a large rubbery piece from the top of the fish pile and adds, “Oh, here’s the liver,” and goes on to explain how they use their livers as buoyancy control and to process salt.

    article-image

    Though collections like this outnumber public museums, they’ve recently started disappearing. Last year, the keepers of the fish collection at the University of Louisiana at Monroe were told they had just 48 hours to find a new location for their fish because their space was needed to renovate the running track. Tulane and a handful of other universities collectively offered to take in their collection, and overnight, the Suttkus Collection acquired 85,000 new specimens. Ironically, ULM had already absorbed another university’s collection when it closed. Around the country, natural history collections are worried this might happen to them next. “This has been happening for a while, but recently, as funding has dropped significantly, a lot more collections like ours are being consolidated or redistributed, or just left to rot,” Mann says.

    The recent development of genetic research has played a role in the loss of funding. Because genetics research requires only a tissue sample, some people feel that collections that preserve the entire fish are no longer useful. And while there are great benefits to using genetic research, Mann does not view it as a replacement for specimen collections. “If you are describing a species and you’re focusing so much on genetic material that you ignore archive material, you’re only getting half the picture,” he says. But government agencies are more likely to fund the newest technology, and the amount they have to distribute is rapidly decreasing. The current administration’s unwillingness to invest in science is a major cause of concern for the entire science community, and especially for collection like this one. “For a long time, it was just us justifying our existence to these agencies,” Mann says. “Now these agencies are having to justify our existence to the administration as a whole, and that’s scary for us…The funding has shrunk, and the competition has gotten a lot harder.”

    article-image

    The Suttkus Collection is lucky in that they receive support from Tulane, but the budgetary constraints of the university, in addition to the decrease in government funding, has proven to be a major challenge. One of Bart’s major goals is to raise enough money to create an endowed position with a reliable source of funding, but finding donors has been difficult since few people have heard of the collection. Because the property was not designed to accommodate visitors, they do not have the capacity to open to the public, and so they remain an unintentional secret outside of the ichthyology bubble.

    But Mann is trying to change that. He’s recently started to do outreach projects to spread the word that the collection exists, that it’s important, and that it needs the public’s support. The situation is even more precarious because of the property. The land itself is an unofficial wildlife preserve and a trove of archeological treasures and history waiting to be discovered.

    Jonathan Walczak is an investigative journalist and archivist hired by TUBRI to collect and piece together notes of Royal D. Suttkus that were damaged or lost during Hurricane Katrina. “I don’t even know how to describe in a quick way what I do, so I just jokingly tell people that I work in a swamp bunker with 8 million dead fish. Which is accurate.” he says. The property is what fascinates him most.

    article-image

    “It’s a very peaceful place,” he says. “I’m probably 15-20 minutes from my house right now, but also in the middle of nowhere.”

    The property spans 360 acres with three dirt roads (Alligator, Armadillo, and Wild Boar). Of the 29 bunkers, two house the Suttkus Collection, and one has the new specimens still being sorted from the ULM collection. The rest of the bunkers are sources of mystery and rumor.

    Walczak shows me where the old fort once stood (though it’s been covered by the Mississippi River and is no longer visible), and the area of the property where old maps show a freedman’s village. After studying old documents, he discovered that the CIA secretly used the property during the early 1960s for Cuban dissidents training in underwater demolition (among other things) for the Bay of Pigs invasion, information that’s still not well-documented. Every piece of the property is rich with history waiting to be uncovered. Coyote, deer, hogs, river otters, and alligator roam freely.

    article-image

    “On one hand, we want as many people to know about it as possible because it’s a special place,” Walczak says. “On the other, you worry about the pristine-ness of it being tainted. But if no one knows about us, we’re going to sink into oblivion.” There’s recently been talk of Tulane selling the property, and it’s unclear whether the Suttkus Collection would remain where it is, or what would happen to the property if the collection were moved to a new home. “I worry, especially as empty, vacant land becomes increasingly scarce and the coast gets closer. I worry that this land might one day be developed and I really hope that’s not the case,” Walczak says. “People come and go as funding comes and goes. And I hope that when I’m gone, that somebody cares about the history.”

    There’s a storm coming. Charcoal clouds prowl up the river from the Gulf. Wild boar and water moccasins linger nearby. But for now, the fish lie safe in their indestructible lair, holding secrets still undiscovered about our oceans, as they have for decades. The elements can’t hurt them here—it’s humans that are dangerous.

              Привёл ли Штирлиц Путина к власти, влияние в Африке, отбивная из Навального, облучение дипломатов, учения и осада Идлиба      Cache   Translate Page

    1. Русский ответ Джеймсу Бонду: вызвал ли он приход Путина к власти? Он был задумчивым шпионом чьи приключения приковывали внимание 80 миллионов зрителей каждую ночь — включая самого Брежнева. Но не послужил ли Макс Отто фон Штирлиц так же вдохновением для Путина?
    2. Россия борется за влияние в Африке и застаёт западных чиновников врасплох. Официальные лица кремля предлагают сделки на вооружение и военные услуги в обмен на дипломатическую поддержку и контракты по добыче минералов.
    3. Я сделаю хорошую, сочную отбивную из лидера оппозиции, — говорит союзник Путина. Бывший телохранитель президента вызывает Алексея Навального на дуэль в чудаковатом вызове в ютубе.
    4. 'Я сделаю хорошую, сочную отбивную из тебя': чудаковатые угрозы союзника Путина в адрес Алексея Навального — видео.
    5. Россия — главный подозреваемый в болезненных состояниях дипломатического персонала США в Китае и на Кубе — согласно сообщениям.
    — США подозревает, что электромагнитное оружие вызвало загадочные недомогания
    — Американский анализ подвергается сомнению неврологами и физиками
    6. Россия начала свои самые большие военные учения с 300 тысячами солдат. НАТО осуждает военные учения с Китаем "Восток–2018" как репетицию крупномасштабного конфликта.
    7. (колонка "письма в редакцию") Великобритания должна возглавить защиту людей Идиба. Представители 12 организаций, которые работают чтобы предотвратить массовые жертвы говорят, что Великобритания должна сыграть главную роль в защите гражданских пойманных в Идлибе от катастрофы.
    8. (колонка "мнение редакции") Взгляд The Guardian на Идлиб: некуда бежать. Неотвратимая осада на последнюю цитадель сопротивляющуюся режиму Башара Асада причинит катастрофу местным гражданским и принесёт еще больше опасностей.
    9. Глава ООН призывает избавить Идлиб от 'гуманитарного кошмара'. Антониу Гуттереш призывает Россию, Иран и Турцию 'не жалея сил' защищать гражданских в последнем оплоте повстанцев в Сирии.

              Kesah Pasangan Lesbian Melayu Kena Hukum 6 Sebatan di Terengganu      Cache   Translate Page      

    Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.

    Saya merujuk kepada kes sepasang wanita lesbian [musahaqah] Melayu yang dijatuhkan hukuman sebatan sebanyak 6 kali setiap seorang oleh pegawai Jabatan Penjara Malaysia di Dewan 2 Mahkamah Tinggi Syariah Kuala Terengganu dengan disaksikan lebih 100 orang awam.

    Maka 'bagaikan enau dalam belukar', keluar lah seorang demi seorang 'ulamak' duniawi mula bersuara membicarakan tentang hukuman tersebut di dalam majlis majlis ceramah agama di masjid masjid dan surau surau di dalam negara.

    Sebahagian mereka ini mengeluarkan pendapat menurut buah fikiran mereka sendiri dan ada pula pemimpin negara yang berkata bahawa Malaysia tidak patut kelihatan sebagai sebuah negara Muslim yang 'keras' didalam pelaksanaan hukum hakam Islamnya.

    Didalam Surah An Nisa ayat ke 58, Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala 
    berfirman: 



    'Sesungguhnya Allah menyuruh kamu supaya menyerahkan segala jenis amanah kepada ahlinya (yang berhak menerimanya), dan apabila kamu menjalankan hukum di antara manusia, (Allah menyuruh) kamu menghukum dengan adil. Sesungguhnya Allah dengan (suruhanNya) itu memberi pengajaran yang sebaik-baiknya kepada kamu. Sesungguhnya Allah sentiasa Mendengar, lagi sentiasa Melihat.'


    Di zaman ini, ramai dari kalangan mereka yang mengaku diri sebagai 'Muslim' pada hakikatnya hanya mendakwa diri sebagai orang Islam tetapi sebenarnya lemah dari segi pemahaman tentang ajaran Islam yang sebenar. 

    Yang membuat kenyataan begitu begini menentang pelaksanaan hukuman sebat atau cambuk didalam negara Malaysia ini terdiri dari kalangan yang 'Muslim' hanya pada nama sahaja.

    Mereka tidak benar benar percaya dan meyakini akan Syariat Allahu Ta'ala. Mereka berfikir bahawa hukum sebat ini adalah keputusan para hakim Mahkamah Syariah sahaja dan tidak diperintah oleh Tuhan Semesta Alam.

    Ada yang menyoal kenapa perlu di sebat atau di rotan jika benar bahawa Allah itu Tuhan yang Maha Pengasih dan Maha Penyayang?

    Cuba kita semak apa yang Allahu Rabbul Alamin perintahkan kepada kita didalam Surah An Nur ayat pertama: 


    'Ini ialah satu "surah" yang Kami turunkan, dan Kami wajibkan hukum-hukumnya, serta Kami turunkan padanya ayat-ayat keterangan yang nyata supaya kamu beringat (mengamalkannya).'

    Apakah golongan penentang pelaksanaan Hukum Syariah Allah ini buta terhadap perintah Allah yang terang terangan ini?


    'Perempuan yang berzina dan lelaki yang berzina, hendaklah kamu sebat tiap-tiap seorang dari keduanya seratus kali sebat; dan janganlah kamu dipengaruhi oleh perasaan belas kasihan terhadap keduanya dalam menjalankan hukum agama Allah, jika benar kamu beriman kepada Allah dan hari akhirat; dan hendaklah disaksikan hukuman seksa yang dikenakan kepada mereka itu oleh sekumpulan dari orang-orang yang beriman.'

    Pasangan 'Lesbian' tersebut melakukan sesuatu perkara yang dilaknati Allah! Perbuatan mereka itu adalah salah dan dilarang didalam ajaran agama Islam.

    Ada begitu banyak perbezaan diantara cara Sebatan Syariah yang telah dilaksanakan di Terengganu dan pelaksanaan Hukum Syar'iyah di Nanggroe Aceh Darussalam.

    Cuba lihat disini:



    Di Aceh, mereka tidak punya Raja atau Sultan Sultan Melayu yang mengaku diri sebagai 'Ketua Agama Islam'. Orang orang Aceh di bawah perintah Gubernur Wilayah Autonomi Provinsi Nanggroe Aceh Darussalam.

    Hukum Syar'iyah Aceh dijalankan oleh DINAS SYARIAT ISLAM dan dihakimi oleh Mahkamah Syar'iyah Aceh.

    Jangan menyamakan car hukuman sebat yang dilaksanakan menurut perintah Allah dengan cara sebatan yang dilaksanakan menurut perintah Mahkamah Sivil.

    Jauh bezanya.

    Selaku umat Islam, kita hendaklah patuh terhadap perintah Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala dan tidak berkata ikut suka semasa hidup dengan Izin Allah di bumi ini.


    Andainya berdegil juga, tunggu sajalah balasan Allah di dalam Alam Barzakh nanti dan seterusnya di Alam Akhirat pula.


    Semasa kita di dalam kubur nanti, Malaikat Munkar dan Naqir tak akan peduli sama ada seseorang itu seorang Sultan, Perdana Menteri, Menteri begitu begini atau Peguam terhebat seantero dunia!

    Tak adanya permaidani kuning atau merah terhampar menanti dikau. Hanya kain kafan yang putih menyelimuti jasad.


    Semoga kita sama sama bersedia menyahut panggilan Ilahi nanti di dalam keadaan Husnul Khatimah. Amin.

    이외의 Dance,Indie,Pop 등의 음악 역시 레슨생의 방향에 맞춰 알려드립니다.
    레슨 생마다 가진 노력과 재능, 센스가 같을 수 없음으로 단순히 커리큘럼에만 의존하지 않고
    학생 한명 한명마다 비트 메이킹부터 작/편곡의 방향성을 잡을 수 있도록 매일 학생 수준에 맞춰

    Focusing
    음악뿐만 아니라 모든 일들이 그렇듯 제일 중요한 것은 기본을 탄탄하게 다지는 일입니다
    길거리 어딜 가도 쉽게 접할 수 있는 음악은 막상 들을 땐 누구나 평론가가 되곤 하지만, 직접 곡을
    써 내려가고 작/편곡을 하는 일은 생각보다 예민하야 하고 귀찮음을 감수해야 할 줄 알아야 합니다
    그렇게 포기하게 되는 큰 이유는 바로 자신의 궁금하고 가려운곳을 시원하게 긁어줄 사람이 없기 떄문입니다.
    옆에서 도와드리고 피드백을 받으며 숙제를 통해 공부를 하다 보면, 혼자 스스로 공부하는 것보다 훨씬 빠른 시간 안에
    발전하는 자신의 모습을 지켜볼 수 있습니다

    음악이 좋아 취미로 배워보고 싶지만 악보를 전혀 볼 줄 모르시는 분들도
    피아노는 곧잘 치지만 막상 곡을 쓰기에는 손이 안 가는 연주자도
    혼자 스스로 공부를 하다가 도저히 방향에 감이 안와 지쳐버린 청년도
    음대를 지원하기 위해 밤낮으로 곡을 써 내려가는 학생도

    누구나 원하는 바를 이룰 수 있도록 하나부터 열까지 기초부터 심화까지
    수준별, 단계별로 수년간의 레슨과 경험으로 다져진 커리큘럼을 토대로 레슨을 진행하며
    이해하지 못하면 할 때까지 옆에서 도와드리고 지켜봐드립니다.
