          Eric Trump Ain't Just Frogwhistling Dixie!      Cache   Translate Page      


RIBBIT. RIBBIT. Donald Trump's favorite Nazi-haired son parked his ass on the Fox sofa this morning, pursed his thin lips together, and whistled out a jaunty tune to all the little Pepe frogs in the feverswamp. Eric dismissed Bob Woodward's runaway blockbuster Fear as "sensational nonsense," written only to "make three extra shekels."

Subtle, Boychik.


We know it's hard to be the dumb one. He's not hot like Ivanka.

When Trump had to put his assets in a "trust," he handed them over to Don Jr. and that accountant Weisselberg. (And you know that guy couldn't even join half the golf clubs in Florida 20 years ago!) Just because DJ is a better liar with irresistible animal magnetism, he gets to run everything? NOT FAIR!

So Eric put in the extra effort this morning. He's growing a ... beard?

He's sliding his cheeks into the Kilmeade-depression, ready for Fox's morning kibbitz, Two Hacks and a Ditz in an Evening Gown. And he's letting that Nazi flag fly!

You can write some sensational, nonsense book. CNN will definitely have you on there, because they love to trash the president. It'll mean you sell three extra books, you make three extra shekels.

Simmer down, Klaus. Woodward sold 750,000 copies of Fear yesterday when the book dropped. Within 24 hours, it's become the fourth bestselling book on Amazon for the entire year. And his publishers are increasing the print run -- for people who still read paper books -- to one million. WOODWARD'S MAKING A LOT MORE THAN THREE SHEKELS.

Three shekels is 84 cents. But Eric's not here to discuss the finer points of Israeli currency exchange. He's winking at the Volksgemeinschaft, letting them know that this book is just more Jew lies from the mainstream media. The fact that Woodward is Protestant is irrelevant. If Eric says that GDP growth under Trump is "the fastest it has ever grown," or that Trump's FEMA is "totally prepared" for Hurricane Florence, well that's how it is, PERIOD.

You're not gonna let some (((globalist))) stop you from using a discardable piece of plastic every time you want to keep from dribbling Mountain Dew down your shirt, are you?

Oddly enough, Poppy Trump failed to retweet Eric's little shoutout to Naziland. Maybe because anti-semitic frogwhistles are a really dumb idea when you're praying to White Jesus that the Jew accountant and the Jew lawyer don't flip on you and sell your ass to Geoffrey Berman, head of SDNY, and Barbara Underwood, New York's AG. Both of whom will be fasting next week, Dummkopf! Plus, your sister is Jewish. Also, YOUR BUSINESS IS HEADQUARTERED IN NEW YORK CITY.

Via YiddishWit.com

Better luck next time, kid. And hey, if DJ goes to jail, maybe Daddy will let you run the business?

(HAHAHAHAHA, no he won't.)

          Hurricane Roundup: Rush Limbaugh, Toxic Stormy Pig Doots, And Didn't North Carolina Declare Sea Level Rise Illegal?      Cache   Translate Page      


We hope anyone who needs to GTFO of the path of Hurricane Florence has already done so and is reading this in the comfort of a motel way inland, because it looks like Pat Robertson's + 25 Prayer Shield Of Stormkilling didn't work, bringing new meaning to the term "20-sided die roll." Florence is predicted to be pretty awful, but don't worry too much, because Rush Limbaugh says (again!) hurricane forecasts are deliberately hyped by the government to make people think global warming is real. Also, while Carolinians both North and South -- and Virginians, too -- are dealing with high winds, storm surge, and potentially record rains, agribusinesses in the Carolinas will add an especially fun challenge when Florence makes landfall: vast lagoons of pigshit that are likely to overflow into rivers and streams. Honestly, we're wondering why this is even an issue at all, since in 2012 the North Carolina legislature banned using science on sea level rise when it came to setting policy on coastal land use. So just remember: It might be a bad hurricane, but one state's planning has already dismissed you tut-tutting liberals. Victory!


Rush Limbaugh Blows Most Foul

On his dumb idiot show for dumb idiots yesterday, Limbaugh explained that the National Weather Service and NOAA have been taken over by crazed liberals who just want to scare Americans into thinking climate change is real, so the nasty mean liberal scientists deliberately exaggerate the damage. Here's a sampling, from Media Matters:

After reminding listeners they should make up their OWN darn minds about whether to evacuate -- "a number of people are trying to figure out what to do. Stay, ride it out, get out, what have you" -- Limbaugh got to the really important point: THEY just want to scare you, with their so-called "science."

You know, this is one of the — and, by the way, this is made to order for the climate change/global warming crowd. This is, they tell us, one of the most powerful hurricanes this far north, ever. And, of course, why is that? Well, that would be sea surface temperature. And why is that warmer …? (Snort!) There you go, climate change. It's being accepted as a non-argumentative fact. I don't care what meteorologist you watch or read, website or what have you. All of this seems to be acknowledged fact. So we're keeping an eye on that.

Limbaugh then explained that as a Florida resident -- or rather, from his perspective at "Southern Command," ha! ha! -- he knows just about all there is to know about hurricanes. It's basically the same bullshit he said last year about Irma. But anyway, back to the politics of mere weather, because "climate" doesn't even exist:

Also, these things have become very politicized as you know, folks. Hurricanes and hurricane forecasting is much like much else that the left has gotten its hands on, and they politicize these things. For those of you asking, "What's the politics of a hurricane?" Climate change is the politics of hurricanes. The forecast and the destruction potential doom and gloom, is all to heighten the belief in climate change.

For instance, just look at how the recent hurricane in Hawaii missed the big island, and the islands are still standing! So don't you go talking about hurricanes, Rush knows what he's talking about and the libs are just trying to scare you. The real point you should all remember, folks, he said a bit later, is that

The media is, as we speak, getting ready to portray Hurricane Florence as Donald Trump's Katrina. Do not doubt me. No matter what happens in the aftermath here, Trump is going to be blamed for this hurricane and its aftermath, and they're gonna be calling it Trump's Katrina — even, maybe, before it hits. You watch.

Don't be silly, Rush. This would be Trump's second Katrina. Like Trump himself, Limbaugh has apparently forgotten the 3,000 deaths in Puerto Rico. Not that Donald Trump would lose any supporters this time around -- he could order FEMA to redeploy to the Texas border to arrest migrant families, and then give himself another A Plus.

Don't Know Why / All This Pigshit's In The Sky / Stormy Weather

Last summer, Harvey showed the world what can happen when a major hurricane hits a city full of Superfund sites and chemical plants (short answer: "EXPLODEY," or maybe "overpressure of the container"-y). And now, Florence is out to show us what can happen when a category 4 or 5 storm dumps massive amounts of rain onto industrial hog farms, which typically feature vast lagoons of pigshit. North Carolina's hog farms produce over ten billion pounds of pigshit a year, although not in one place, hooray! With any luck, these aren't the literally explodey kind.

In 2016, Quartz informs us in a hurricane pigshit summary, Hurricane Matthew flooded 14 pigshit lagoons, although the damage was mitigated by some farmers having pumped waste into tanker trucks and hauling it away in the days before the storm. Hurricane Floyd in 1999 actually led to the failure of multiple pigshit lagoons, dumping a fecal flood into waterways and estuaries and leading to algae blooms and widespread fish kills. But surely we've learned from past pigshit overflows, no?

Andy Curliss, the CEO of the North Carolina Pork Council, told Bloomberg that lagoons can handle as much as 25 inches (64 centimeters) of rain without failing. "If we get more than 25 inches of rain, then we'll start to be concerned," he said.

According to Accuweather forecasts, up to 40 inches of rain are expected in parts of North Carolina.

Hmm. That might be bad! And if the pigshit lakes are anywhere near the level of the one in this video on the joys of living next to the things in non-stormy weather, then overflow will definitely be unpleasant and hard to avoid:

That's from a previous report on the general awfulness of having to live near hog farms in normal circumstances, which makes us think you should probably avoid that new real-estate development "The Farms At Pigshit Lakes."

Keep in mind, however, that Rush Limabaugh also ridiculed the potential for Maximum Pigshit Overflow as part of the Fake Media hype about Florence, because come on, when has record rainfall ever done bad things? And if it does, remember it has nothing to do with climate change. (Limbaugh also said similar fears were raised about Katrina but never happened -- and to prove it, he linked to an AP story that said nothing about storm-frothed pig doots. And just to prove the government is lying to you he mentioned a story claiming that sharks had been sucked up by Florence -- which turned out to be an internet fake.)

None of this can be happening anyway! Sea Levels Are Not Rising, BY LAW

Let's not forget that, back in 2012, the North Carolina state legislature took definitive action on sea level rise due to global warming, by declaring it fictional. In response to a report from a state agency that predicted sea level rises of 39 inches within a hundred years, the legislature banished such panicky science from state policy planning, because obviously that's impossible and beach homes MUST maintain their value. As ABC News reported when the measure became law,

The law, which began as a routine regulation on development permits but quickly grew controversial after the sea-level provision was added, restricts all sea-level predictions used to guide state policies for the next four years to those based on "historical data."

Tom Thompson, president of NC-20, a coastal development group and a key supporter of the law, said the science used to make the 39-inch prediction was flawed, and added that the resources commission failed to consider the economic consequences of preparing the coast for a one-meter rise in sea level, under which up to 2,000 square miles would be threatened.

This makes all kinds of sense: If something will be costly, it can't be true. State Rep. Pat McElraft, who drafted the law, explained at the time she wasn't anti-science at all, heavens no:

Most of the environmental side say we're ignoring science, but the bill actually asks for more science [...] We're not ignoring science, we're asking for the best science possible, the best extrapolation possible, looking at the historical data also. We just need to make sure that we're getting the proper answers.

That 2012 article notes that Rep. McElraft, who's still in the legislature, is a former real estate agent whose largest campaign contributions came from the real estate business. Imagine that! It also notes she lives on one of the state's Barrier Islands -- or did in 2012 -- where a mandatory evacuation is now in effect. Gosh, we hope her house is OK, because it sure would be awful if a powerful storm knocked it into the definitely-not-rising sea.

          Fuerteventura : Exposición de Miguel Alberto Torres en la Casa de la Cultura de Puerto del Rosario      Cache   Translate Page      



·         Esta Muestra de pintura al oleo lleva por título “Maxocol Arte” y sera inaugurada este jueves, 13 de septiembre, a las 19:00h, en la Casa de la Cultura Municipal

 Miguel Alberto Torres, pintor autodidacta, nacido en Bucaramanga (Colombia), desde muy niño mostró su vocación por la pintura, mostrando interés permanente por todo lo relacionado con el arte, utilizando diferentes técnicas e investigando paso a paso, haciendo estudios propios al natural. Maestro del color primario y sus derivaciones, amante del verdadero arte clásico, en su forma, contenido y técnica, afianzándose cada día, en la calidad de su trabajo, va consiguiendo la armonía del color en sus paisajes, bodegones y figuras humanas, donde aflora, su técnica depurada y su pincelada pastosa, que lo caracteriza, como uno de los pintores, que se esfuerzan por mantener, la siempre buena y nueva pintura, de los maestros de los grandes museos. 

Su obra transmite un mensaje, el cual puede ser entendido, por los espectadores, ya que en su pincelada y el manejo del color, se palpa o se puede ver la atmosfera, que transmite vida a los elementos plasmados en cada tela. Su primer experiencia en sala de exposiciones, fue en una colectiva a la edad de 17 años, en la cual obtuvo el primer puesto, su primer mención de honor y luego organizó su primera exposición individual., esto le abrió paso a una invitación fuera del país, a su regreso, abrió su primera escuela de enseñanza, sin embargo, su destacable labor no termina ahí, sino que está formando pintores, con miras en compartir todos sus conocimientos.

Bucaramanga

Ciudad de origen y lugar donde comienza, a muy temprana edad, sus primeros pasos en el campo de la pintura. En las clases de su escuela primaria, era el más sobresaliente en el curso de las artes plásticas y llamaba la atención, pues gran parte de su tiempo, lo dedicaba a esta labor. En su adolescencia, ingresa a la escuela de bellas artes DICAS (Dirección de Artes Plásticas de Santander). El primer día de clase, fue promovido al segundo semestre y al cabo de un mes, ascendió al cuarto semestre por su dominio en el dibujo y el color, mostrando sus cualidades y avance en el campo de la pintura.

Entre los 16 y 17 años de edad, tuvo su primera experiencia como expositor, fue invitado a un encuentro artístico departamental y logró con su obra, el primer puesto, posteriormente vinieron una serie de exposiciones a través de las cuales su obra empezaría a tener reconocimiento.

·         "Venus del Espejo de Velázquez".
·         "Niños jugando dados de Murillo".
·         "Niños de la concha de Murillo".

Entre 1989 y 1995 determina formar un grupo de artistas y empieza a dar clases de pintura con gran éxito, pues para muchos ha sido de las mejores escuelas que se crearon en la ciudad de Santander y su capital, Bucaramanga, pues varios de estos artístas que pasaron por su taller, son reconocidos a nivel nacional e internacional. En 1995, viaja a Europa y parte de Ásia y África, recorre varios museos de Italia y Alemania, donde se encuentra con obras muy familiares y otras desconocidas, las cuales enriquecen su experiencia como artista, posteriormente viaja a Egipto e Israel, donde se encuentra con lo más importante para su vida, según el artista, el encuentro con Jesus de Nazareth.
A su regreso, participa en algunas exposiciones colectivas y hace una que otra individual. En 1997, prepara una obra y la expone en la ciudad de Medellín, en la cual participaron aproximadamente 430 artistas nacionales y algunos invitados de paises vecinos, su obra fue escogida como la mejor y la publicaron en la portada del catálogo, así como en algunos libros y revistas del país. Continúa su labor artística y en 1998 realiza una exposición en Bogotá en el edificio nuevo del Senado de la República en el Salón "Signos y Leyes".

En el 2014, nos adelantamos algunos años y vamos a la casa del libro total, en Bucaramanga, en ese mismo año celebras exposiciones en tres ciudades de Cataluña.

          The Test Facing Democratic Socialist Julia Salazar in New York      Cache   Translate Page      

For decades, the New York City Democratic machine has capitalized off of low-turnout elections to keep its members in power. However, a new generation of progressive New Yorkers is rejecting that model, arguing that mobilizing new voters can drive electoral success. As Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s shocking victory in June highlighted, this “mobilize the base” strategy can upend the political establishment.

Like Ocasio-Cortez, Julia Salazar, a 27-year-old state senate candidate, is mounting a volunteer-driven challenge to a long-time incumbent, running as an open democratic socialist and rejecting corporate money. In a city that has been confronted with a systemic housing crisis and mass displacement, many candidates from the Left see machine-affiliated incumbents as complacent and vulnerable to populist criticisms. Salazar is no different. At the heart of her campaign is a critique of her opponent’s proximity to New York real estate interests and his role in propelling a rent crisis in the district. Rent stabilization laws in New York State are up for renewal in 2019, making this a decisive election year. Among Salazar’s chief platform planks are ending vacancy decontrol and instituting universal rent stabilization.

Salazar’s opponent is 16-year incumbent Martin Dilan in New York’s 18th Senate District, which includes parts of Greenpoint, Williamsburg, Bushwick and Cypress Hill. Dilan is one of the last holdouts of the political machine of Vito Lopez, the now deceased former Brooklyn Democratic Party Chair. Lopez was a state assemblyman for 30 years. During his tenure, he turned his nonprofit, the Ridgewood Bushwick Senior Citizens Council, into a formidable political operation. At its height in 2010, the RBSCC held $100 million in city and state contracts and engaged in classic quid-pro-quo politics. Lopez resigned as Brooklyn Democratic Chair and Assemblyman in 2013, after facing highly credible sexual harassment allegations. Dilan and his son, Councilman Erik Dilan, were among the largest beneficiaries of Lopez’s machine, funneling taxpayer money to RBSCC in exchange for political support.

But Lopez’s machine is no more, and there are strong reasons to see strength behind Salazar’s challenge. In 2014, and again in 2016, activist Debbie Medina mounted spirited challenges against Dilan’s proximity to real-estate interests and his failure to effectively respond to skyrocketing rents. However, the summer before the September 2016 primary, child abuse allegations surfaced against Medina. Despite losing critical endorsements and suffering from a crippling deficit of volunteers, Medina still won nearly 41 percent of the vote.

Clearly, voters in the 18th District are open to change. The question is whether Julia Salazar can capitalize on it.

Past under scrutiny

Salazar’s personal biography has come under scrutiny in recent weeks. Her identity as an immigrant, her assertions of growing up working-class and her Judaism have all been questioned, revealing a complex series of accounts from the candidate that could be characterized as everything from deliberately misleading statements to forgivable lapses of judgment. It was additionally revealed that she was previously a leader in right-wing activism at Columbia University, and that she was questioned over impersonating a family friend to access their financial information. As with many questions of personal identity, the story is not entirely black and white.

While Salazar’s website referred to the candidate as a “proud immigrant,” in August it was revealed that she was actually born in Miami, Fla., though she traveled back and forth between the United States and Colombia as a child. Salazar says she “never intended to misrepresent my personal narrative or my immigration status,” and that while several outlets, and even she herself, had made reference to her immigrant status, her statements were the product of imprecise early childhood memories and a strong identification with Colombia and her father’s family. She expressed regret that she hadn’t more thoroughly interrogated her memories as she began to run for public office, saying that “when I set out to run for State Senate I wasn’t critically thinking about my biography, specifically what has been challenged in my early childhood.”

Her early childhood has come under scrutiny from another angle: her class status. She has positioned herself as coming from a working-class background. The first time we talked she described how her economic conditions are foundational to her politics. However, her father worked as a pilot, and her brother has strongly contested her narrative of a working-class upbringing. Salazar admits that her early childhood, until age six, when her parents separated, was not one of economic uncertainty. However, she told me that after the separation, her father paid child support inconsistently at best, and the family relied on Social Security once he became disabled. She said that her mother had to return to college and made $17,000 dollars in one year while raising two children, and that her family’s “economic status varied greatly throughout my upbringing. The background that my parents came from, paired with the financial experience I had in elementary school or middle school are very safe to describe as working class.”

She says that “the lines aren’t fixed when it comes to class status. But when I talk about having working-class or middle-class experience, I mean that I understand the financial insecurity that people in my district face.” She says that “it’s not helpful or meaningful to debate whether I was poor,” but rather that her campaign is “about building solidarity with people who have to work for a living with families that know that if someone gets sick they could lose their home.” Salazar claims that class isn’t a rigid identity, but that it varies with economic status, and the combination of financial precarity and security in her upbringing complicates discussions of her class.

Ultimately, she believes that “voters are more concerned with my record as an advocate and my ability to fight for constituents.”

Which is why her history as a right-wing college activist bears addressing. After first registering as a Republican in Florida in 2008, Salazar says that after moving to New York she intended to register as an Independent but instead accidentally registering for the state’s Independence Party.

At Columbia University, she was involved with both pro-Israel and pro-life activism. Columbia is where she embraced the Jewish faith, which she says was spurred on by the death of her father, who “had made allusions to a Sephardic surname.” Her integration in Jewish life at Columbia, through organizations like Challah for Hunger and Hillel, encouraged her to visit Israel. The details of her trip have also been a source of controversy about her Jewish identity, as the trip was planned by Christians United for Israel rather than a Jewish organization. Nevertheless, she cites her visit to Israel, in 2012, and seeing the separation barrier particularly, as disabusing her of her firm pro-Israel stance. Being “very disturbed by the violence I saw there,” she says she made “a significant decision to reject pro-Israel advocacy.”

She described her experience in pro-life activism, with Columbia Right to Life, as echoing her other right-wing commitments. Her allegiance was shifted in the controversy around the creation of a Columbia abortion fund, which every student would pay into as part of their university-provided health plan. Salazar led the Support Pregnant Students Initiative, aiming to provide support for students who choose to keep their pregnancy. After she published an op-ed in the Columbia Spectator arguing her position, she was confronted by a number of close friends who, through a series of “very hard conversations,” led her to “realize I was deeply miseducated and wrong about abortion.”

Moving left

When asked whys he hadn’t made her political evolution part of her campaign story, Salazar says she was more focused on the community that had encouraged her to run for office, and that she “didn’t think about my own narrative so much and my own evolution.”

As an outgrowth of her political evolution, Salazar helped organize a rent strike against an abusive and absent landlord during her junior year at Columbia. She and her fellow tenants took their landlord to court and won. Her victory, though, was fleeting: when her lease ended a few months later, her landlord declined to renew it. Accordingly, the event holds two meanings for her: while “it was empowering to see how people without law degrees, without any institutional power were able to fight management and win,” she “was still being displaced. It was a very vivid example of the need to fight for systemic changes to systemic problems.”

Salazar says that experience helped propel her run for office.

When we spoke the first time, Salazar expressed how she was “tired of having to ask the same elected officials over and over again to do the right thing.” Her work in Albany and New York City, along with the support of her community and fellow organizers, convinced her that the solution wasn’t bird-dogging her representatives, but replacing them.

Changing landscape

Julia Salazar’s campaign is just one hint that change may be on the horizon in the New York State Senate. Members of the Independent Democratic Conference, (IDC) a group of Democratic senators who caucused with Republicans for the past eight years, are appearing increasingly weak in the face of strong primary challenges. And, if he wins reelection, Gov. Andrew Cuomo may find himself between a rock and a hard place come 2019.

According to Bill Lipton, the New York State Director of the Working Families Party, a progressive, or even a Democratic majority in the state senate is just what Cuomo has been trying to avoid. “Andrew Cuomo has spent the last eight years doing everything he can to keep progressives out of power in Albany—from allowing the Senate Republicans to gerrymander their own districts after promising repeatedly not to, to refusing to campaign for Senate Democrats, to helping the IDC steal the Democratic majority away in 2012, to fostering division between IDC and the Democratic caucus.” This arrangement has allowed Cuomo to act as the power broker in the state senate while both helping block progressive legislation and retaining his Democratic credentials.

Lipton claims Cuomo has utilized this arrangement to masquerade as a progressive while keeping legislative threats to his moneyed friends dead in the water, all the while joking to Senate Republicans about how little he supports Democratic candidates. That Cuomo has managed to build one of the largest campaign war chests in the country through corporate donations speaks to the immense wealth that this arrangement has granted. Lipton says real estate is among the chief interests that pay into this racket: “Real estate is to New York what coal is to West Virginia—the lifeblood of oligarchy.”

Housing crisis

It may be difficult for many residents of the 18th District to square their soaring rents with the $200,000 in real estate money Sen. Dilan has raised during his tenure in office, especially in a district ravaged by pro-real estate legislation and ensuing gentrification. Dilan’s vote has been instrumental in both implementing vacancy decontrol in 1994 as a city councilman, and defusing attempts to repeal the law in 2010 as a state senator. Vacancy decontrol, which allows landlords to freely raise the rent on vacant rent-stabilized units, is at the center of the city-wide housing crisis. According to Salazar, the 18th District alone loses tens of thousands of rent stabilized and controlled units every year.

And considering the state of New York City’s rent laws, which are set on the state level, that isn’t surprising. Once rent on an apartment reaches $2,733.75, landlords can “free” a unit from its rent-stabilized status and instead charge market rates.

There are two main ways that landlords jack up the rent: when a renovation is made owners are allowed a commensurate increase in rent, and the rent can be raised when a tenant moves out. In practice, both of these regulations produce perverse incentives. In the first case, landlords are given very little oversight when reporting the added value of a renovation, meaning they often make small improvements while disproportionately increasing rent. As for the second, landlords are incentivized to rent to short-term tenants, like college students and young people who don’t have ties to the neighborhood, and to harass their rent-stabilized tenants.

The scale of tenant abuse is staggering: A New York Times investigation found stories of landlords who punched holes in the roofs and walls of occupied rent-controlled units, bombarded tenants with eviction suits and harassed them with loud construction. The investigation discovered that the agencies responsible for regulation were “fractionalized, divided among three city and state agencies” and “essentially passive.” This regulatory environment has had devastating impacts on the 18th District. In Bushwick, a family living on the median yearly income, just over $42,000, would have to spend more than 60 percent of their income to afford the average rent of a two-bedroom unit. In Williamsburg, that number is 65 percent.

While Dilan argues that he never thought his vote would come to harm his own constituents, Jennifer Lenow, a member of NYC-DSA’s organizing committee for the Brooklyn Housing Working Group, says that Dilan’s “thousands and thousands from real estate speaks louder than his rhetoric.”

Salazar has been endorsed by the New York City chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America, U.S. Rep. Nydia Velazquez and City Council Member Antonio Reynoso, as well as Cynthia Nixon and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Michael Kinnucan, Salazar’s Deputy Campaign Director, is optimistic about her chances, citing the broad dissatisfaction with the political status quo, the support of local activist groups Make the Road Action and New York Communities for Change, and “one of the largest volunteer ground-organizations in the city.”

Polling shows state-wide enthusiasm for large-scale investment in public housing, signaling that New Yorkers would look favorably upon a more proactive approach to confronting the state’s housing crisis.

As part of their New Progressive Agenda Project, Civis Analytics, a data analytics firm, and the think tank Data for Progress (where I am a fellow) have shown that 59 percent of likely 2018 voters in New York support billions of dollars in investment in public housing, even after hearing Republican arguments against it and being presented with an explicit tax pay-for through tax hikes. “These numbers are pretty consistent with the very high levels of support we’ve seen for public housing ballot measures in cities like Portland and Seattle,” says David Shor, head of data science at Civis Analytics’ political practice.

Persona and policy

Salazar’s controversies, meanwhile, have continued in recent days. On September 6, allegations of an affair with former New York Mets player Keith Hernandez and an attempt to impersonate his then-estranged, now divorced wife, Kai, have come to light. Salazar had been family friends with Hernandez, and was arrested for, but ultimately not charged with, the felony impersonation of Kai. According to Salazar’s statement, the lawsuit was entirely the product of a vengeful ex-wife who had gone so far as to impersonate Salazar on the phone in an attempt to frame her for illegally accessing her finances. Kai’s motive, according to Salazar, was that while house-sitting at Kai’s request Salazar had found “a lot of drugs, syringes, and several guns.” Salazar says that after calling Keith and describing the condition of the house, he, along with local police came to document the scene. The next year she was called by local police and interrogated for allegedly impersonating Kai. After not being charged, in 2013, Salazar sued Kai Hernandez for damages and the two parties reached a settlement in 2017.

When asked for comment about the controversies surrounding Salazar, Martin Dilan’s spokesman Bob Liff said that while “Marty has been a progressive and stable champion for residents of the 18th district, his opponent will have to speak for herself.”

A victory by Salazar’s insurgent campaign would offer even more proof that the future of the Democratic Party is multi-racial, decidedly left, community-driven and not beholden to corporate interests. However, the narrative surrounding her has become thick with controversy, misrepresentation and outright lies. While it is quite possible, as many of Salazar’s supporters claim, that the candidate has been victim to a right-wing smear campaign, there remain legitimate questions about how she has publicly presented herself throughout her campaign.

In a district whose neighborhoods are synonymous with gentrification, the question facing voters in the 18th is this: To what extent is representative politics about personality, and to what extent is it about policy? Thursday’s election will help provide an answer.

Panic drives the smear attack against Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn whose background as a radical socialist, not his criticism of Israel and support for the Palestine, threatens the British establishment’s hold on power, argues Alexander Mercouris.
By Alexander Mercouris
in London
Special to Consortium News
<img class=”alignleft wp-image-27578″ src=”https://consortiumnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/alexander_mercouris-864x400_c-1-150×150.jpg” alt=”” width=”90″ height=”90″ />Any discussion of the current “anti-Semitism crisis” in the British Labour Party needs to start with an understanding that there is no “anti-semitism crisis” in the British Labour Party, or in Britain.
Anti-Semitism did once have a place in British society. By way of example, readers of Agatha Christie stories written before World War II will come across stock anti-Semitic representations of Jewish characters. As recently as the 1970s, I can remember what would today be considered Semitic stereotypes being commonly used to represent Jewish people in many of the unfunny comedy shows broadcast by British television in that period, including some the BBC broadcast.
Racist stereotyping of this sort was commonplace in Britain right up to the 1970s, and was certainly not exclusive to Jews, as Irish people, black people and people from the Indian subcontinent well recall. Some still persists today, but by and large racial stereotyping is socially unacceptable, except (worryingly) with respect to Russians.
By comparison with other European countries, anti-Semitism in Britain has, however, not been a major phenomenon in modern British society and recent British history. There has been no official persecution of Jews in Britain since they were allowed to resettle in England by Oliver Cromwell in the 1650s, while the attempt by Oswald Moseley’s British Union of Fascists to stir up political anti-Semitism in the 1930s provoked fierce resistance.
Jewish people now play a full and active role in British life, and this happens without notice or comment.
As for the formal institutions of Britain’s Jewish community, these form an integral part of British life. The chief rabbi has enjoyed a measure of recognition as the nominal leader of the British Jewish community from the British state ever since the 1870s.  Since the 1980s, by convention, the chief rabbi has been admitted to the British Parliament as a peer of the House of Lords, though the present chief rabbi, Ephraim Mirvis, has not yet been so admitted. The British Jewish community’s major institution—the Board of Deputies of British Jews—has had a continuous existence since the 1760s.
Though there are anti-Semites in Britain as there are everywhere else, they are very much a minor and ugly fringe, and moreover a generally despised and disliked one, with no influence or traction in British politics or in British life.
Despite lurid claims to the contrary, actual cases of anti-Semitic violence and property damage in Britain are relatively few, and certainly appear to be less than other types of racial violence.
Indeed, Jewish people today are so much an integral part of British society and of British life that I for one question whether it is even accurate to speak of a distinct “Jewish establishment” among British Jews. Rather, it seems to me that it would be more accurate to say that there are some prominent British Jews and some prominent British Jewish institutions—such as the chief rabbi and the Board of Deputies of British Jews—which today form an integral part of the larger British establishment, whose general perspectives and interests they share.
Which brings me to the present “anti-Semitism” campaign against Jeremy Corbyn.
The Left-Wing, Anti-Imperialist Labour Tradition
The British Labour Party was formed in 1900 before World War I, and if there has been one political movement in Britain that has stood rock solid against all manifestations of anti-Semitism in British life (perhaps more than any other group), it is the British Labour Party, and first and foremost its left wing.
This is consistent with the traditional stance of the left wing of the British Labour Party, which can be broadly defined as anti-racist, anti-fascist, and, above all, anti-imperialist. The latter has been important in a country like Britain—historically the preeminent imperialist power—where imperialism was justified in racist terms. British left-wing anti-imperialists, who are mostly drawn from the working class (a fact which gave British anti-imperialism a strong class-conflict character) strongly were predisposed to be anti-racist.
Not surprisingly, British Labour left-wing anti-racism extended to staunch opposition to anti-Semitism, which is, of course, the reason why so many British Jews were drawn to the Labour Party in the first place.
The key point to understand about Corbyn is that it is from within this left-wing, anti-imperialist Labour tradition that he comes. His parents after all first met each other in the 1930s attending a rally in support of the Spanish Republic at the time of the Spanish Civil War. He has been loyal to the traditions of the Labour Party’s anti-imperialist left ever since he began his career in politics, as his long record of opposition to all the West’s interventionist wars shows. Needless to say, that includes strong and consistent anti-racism and the opposition to anti-Semitism which goes with it. Strikingly, Corbyn’s acceptance speech following his election as Labour leader included a declaration of support for refugees.
To insinuate that Corbyn is an anti-Semite—as is increasingly happening—and to insinuate that the left wing of the Labour Party to which he belongs is riddled with anti-Semitism and poses an “existential threat to British Jews” (as several of the British Jewish community’s newspapers have alleged) is more than just absurd. It stands reality on its head. Corbyn is not an anti-Semite. Anti-Semitism, on the contrary, is what he always has defined himself against, and to claim otherwise is dishonest and even surreal.
Corbyn’s well-known support for the Palestinian people’s struggle does not contradict his opposition to anti-Semitism. Rather, it is the product of his consistent anti-imperialism, making Corbyn’s support for the Palestinians and his opposition to anti-Semitism consistent.
All this is well understood by those who are conducting the anti-Semitism campaign against Corbyn within the Labour Party and outside it. Corbyn has been a fixture of British political life ever since he was first elected a member of Parliament in 1983. The British establishment—including those members of the British establishment who are Jewish—know him well, and they know well what his actual beliefs are. It is not credible that they believe him to be an anti-Semite, or that they think that the left wing of the British Labour Party, which supports him, is riddled with anti-Semitism.
The Push to Stop Corbyn
The essential mendacity of the whole anti-Semitism campaign and the true motives behind it is shown by the exceptionally narrow frame of reference in which it is being conducted. It is universally acknowledged that the allegations of anti-Semitism being made against Corbyn and some of his supporters stem from Corbyn’s longstanding support for the Palestinian people’s struggle and his equally longstanding criticisms of Israel’s response to that struggle. As’ad AbuKhalil has discussed this aspect of the affair for Consortium News with great thoroughness and detail.
It is worth pointing out, however, that the criticisms being made against Corbyn barely touch on the Palestinian question at all. Anyone looking at these criticisms for a discussion of the Palestinian issue, even one from a position sympathetic to Israel and hostile to the Palestinians, will fail to find it.
The Palestinian struggle, the plight of the Palestinian people, the whole history of the Arab-Israeli conflict and the current policies both of Israel and of the Western governments which support it, are barely mentioned. When Palestinians do get mentioned at all, it is purely as terrorists. The entire campaign is being conducted as if Corbyn and those who support him hate Zionism and Israel and therefore allJews.
It is, of course, impossible that those who are conducting the campaign against Corbyn are any more ignorant of the basic facts of the Palestinian struggle and of the Arab-Israeli conflict than they are ignorant of Corbyn’s actual beliefs. If they are not mentioning these facts, it is not because they are ignorant of them. It is because they choose not to mention them.

In other words, the campaign against Corbyn has very little to do with the situation in the Middle East. I say this, though I have no doubt that the Israeli embassy is playing an active role in the campaign, a fact which is apparently freely admitted within Israel itself, though not in Britain.
However, it is a mistake to see the campaign against Corbyn as principally Israeli inspired. If it were, I would expect those conducting it to say far more about the situation in the Middle East than they do. Nor, in my opinion, is the campaign exclusively or even primarily the work of British Jews. As it happens, the Jewish community in Britain is far from united behind the campaign, with many British Jews expressing doubts or even outright opposition to it.
Instead, the campaign should be seen for what it is: the latest in a long series of attacks by the British establishment against Corbyn, the one British politician who more than any other embodies the threat to the current status quo and to the British establishment’s hold on power.
These attacks have at various times sought to portray Corbyn as a Communist, a Russian agent, a terrorist sympathizer and a traitor. Adding a charge of anti-Semitism to this catalogue is an obvious further step, and given Corbyn’s well-known advocacy of Palestinian rights an easy one. The only surprise is that it has not happened before.
That the anti-Semitism campaign is the latest in a long series of establishment attacks on Corbyn, which extend all the way back to his election as Labour’s leader, is shown by the sheer breadth of the campaign. The parliamentary Labour Party, the entire Conservative Party and the media (including the BBC and the supposedly left-wing Guardian newspaper) have all embraced it. Certainly, it extends far beyond those members of Britain’s Jewish community who form part of the greater British establishment and who initially spearheaded it. As it happens, the great majority of British politicians and commentators who have joined in the campaign are non-Jews.
A New Political Dynamic
As for the campaign’s greater vehemence by comparison with earlier campaigns, that is the product of the changed political dynamic in Britain since the June 2017 general election.
Before that election, the British establishment did not take Corbyn seriously, since it assumed that the British electorate would reject him in any election which he fought. The horrifying realization following the June 2017 election that the opposite is the case has—not surprisingly—caused panic and has led to the establishment pulling out all the stops. That explains not just the greater vehemence of this campaign but why it has persisted for so long.
In other words, what is driving the campaign is not some overarching loyalty on the part of British Jews to Israel or a belief that Corbyn is an anti-Semite. Rather, it is British establishment panic. As Britain’s Conservative government disintegrates, Corbyn stands poised to become Britain’s next prime minister. That terrifying prospect—of a radical socialist in 10, Downing Street—is one which must be averted at all costs. That is the reason for the anti-Semitism campaign we have been witnessing, and thus all the other campaigns against Corbyn we have witnessed, of which there are certainly more to come.
While the causes of the anti-Semitism campaign are mainly domestic, there is a wide consensus among Corbyn’s supporters that he has not handled his response to the campaign well. The general opinion—that he has been far too accommodating to his critics—has been forcefully argued in Consortium News by Jonathan Cook.
Corbyn himself has conceded too much ground on anti-semitism. As a lifelong anti-racism campaigner, the accusations of anti-semitism have clearly pained him. He has tried to placate rather than defy the smearers. He has tried to maintain unity with people who have no interest in finding common ground with him.
And as he has lost all sense of how to respond in good faith to allegations made in bad faith, he has begun committing the cardinal sin of sounding and looking evasive – just as those who deployed the anti-semitism charge hoped. It was his honesty, plain-speaking and compassion that won him the leadership and the love of ordinary members. Unless he can regain the political and spiritual confidence that underpinned those qualities, he risks haemorrhaging support.
This widespread view that Corbyn has been accommodating to people who seek only his destruction has even produced some curious examples of drafts of “speeches” written for him by some of his sympathizers setting out the sort of things which they think he should say.
While I have considerable sympathy for this view, I think it is only fair to add that Corbyn happens to be one of the most polite and diffident personalities in British politics. The contrast with, say, Donald Trump in the United States, could not be greater. It is not in Corbyn’s nature to respond to his critics with the same forcefulness that they extend to him. While this makes Corbyn an indifferent orator and blunts his impact in debates in the House of Commons, his politeness and diffidence is an integral part of his appeal. To call on him to act differently is to call for a different man, with no guarantee that that man would command anything remotely approaching the level of support that Corbyn has.
Is the Campaign Working?
It is important to stress this point because as of the time of writing it is far from clear to me that—contrary to what Jonathan Cook fears—this latest campaign against Corbyn is succeeding.
The poll numbers barely have shifted, with Conservative and Labour both polling around 40 percent of the vote since the June 2017 general election, and most opinion polls put Labour ahead. Though the anti-Semitism campaign may have lost Labour some Jewish votes in places like the London district of Barnet, the generality of the British voters seem indifferent and unimpressed by the whole affair.
I suspect that the truth is that Corbyn has been around in British politics for so long that the British electorate long ago formed its view of him. Knowing Corbyn as well as they do—as well as the left-wing tradition from which he comes—the vast majority of British center-left voters who make up Corbyn’s electoral base find the whole idea that he is an anti-Semite just too fantastic to take seriously. Besides the fact that the anti-Semitism campaign is merely the latest in a series of campaigns against Corbyn launched from the moment he became Labour’s leader makes the true motives of his critics in the end altogether too obvious.
The Nuremberg trials, circa 1945-46. (National Archives)
Cook has expressed the fear that if the Labour Party adopts the four additional working examples of anti-Semitism drafted by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA)—which it has hitherto resisted doing because of the way they limit criticism of Israel—that will make future criticism of Israel by Corbyn and by other members of the Labour Party all but impossible, and will open the way to a purge of Palestinian sympathizers within the Labour Party. [Editor’s note: The Labour Party altered its anti-Semitism definition on Sept. 4 at its National Executive Committee meeting and adopted the four additional working examples of anti-Semitism drafted by the IHRA.]
Similar concerns have been expressed by Norman Finkelstein, who sees the whole attempt to impose any sort of definition of anti-Semitism on the Labour Party as an attack on the party’s traditions and on free speech.
These concerns are far from groundless. On the contrary, there is no doubt that silencing criticism of Israel is very much a part of the agenda of some of the people behind the campaign, with the British establishment (not just its Jewish part) united in support of Israel in the same way as are the political establishments of all the other Western countries. Consider, for example, this extraordinary article by Andrew Feldmanin The Evening Standard, a newspaper edited by former Conservative Prime Minister David Cameron’s friend and former Chancellor George Osborne, which contains this passage:
Anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism are the same thing. They are two sides of the same coin. Anti-Zionism is the belief that the state of Israel should not exist. That it should be dismantled. This is not the same as saying, quite legitimately, that you disagree with the policies of the current or any other Israeli government; or calling for the reversal of the settlement programme in the West Bank; or demanding a return to earlier borders and the creation of a two-state solution.
Some historical context is important here. Two thousand years ago, at the end of a long and bloody revolt, the Temple was destroyed and the Jewish people were dispersed far and wide, across the Roman Empire and beyond. They settled in many places. Some made them welcome for a time. Others less so. Jewish people lived in a constant state of trepidation. Periods of peace and prosperity punctuated by pogroms, inquisition and expulsion.
In Europe, the Holocaust was the crescendo of centuries of rumbling antipathy. Jews sought to escape the horror but the numbers who found refuge were pathetically small. Even the UK only accepted 70,000 Jewish refugees before the Second World War and 10,000 during it.
Quite simply, there was nowhere for them to go, so six million people perished out of a total global Jewish population of 17 million.
Finally, after this destruction, the world decided that enough was enough. The Jewish people needed their own place to go when things went wrong. And the ancient homeland was chosen. It was to be shared with the Palestinians on lines established by a United Nations resolution in 1948.
This was not the only work for the cartographers after the Second World War. The demise of empire, the calls for national determination and the need for pragmatic solutions brought about the creation of new states in Europe, Africa, the Indian subcontinent and elsewhere in the Middle East. Lines were drawn on maps. Sometimes they respected geographical, religious and tribal boundaries; sometimes they did not. Everyone was doing the best they could to make sense of the cataclysmic events of the previous decades.
The State of Israel served its purpose. A national homeland for the Jewish people existing alongside the Jewish communities that continued to live around the world. And when things did not go well for some of those communities — in Russia, Iraq, Morocco and elsewhere — it was a place of sanctuary. It accepted refugees in huge numbers without question.
Note that the Palestinians are barely mentioned in the whole article, which claims that anti-Zionism is anti-Semitism and does so by linking anti-Zionism to the whole history of anti-Semitism in the West, culminating in the Nazis and the Holocaust.
Needless to say, though Feldman appears to admit that it is legitimate to criticize Israel, he makes no criticisms of Israel anywhere in his article. In practice, on the basis of his article, it is difficult to imagine what criticism of Israeli policy toward the Palestinians Feldman would not define as anti-Semitic.
Having said this, it is important to retain perspective. Even though the Labour Party changed its anti-Semitism definition, that will not end criticism of Israel within the Labour Party or in British society. Corbyn himself will not change his views, nor will other supporters of the Palestinian struggle within the Labour Party or in British society.
Ultimately, what is causing the growing criticism of Israel in Britain as elsewhere are Israeli policies, and attempts to silence criticism of those policies by conjuring up the specter of anti-Semitism or by resorting to purges and inquisitions that can only, in the end, threaten to provoke a backlash.
How the Anti-Corbyn Campaign Is Like Russia-gate
The anti-Semitism campaign against Corbyn in Britain bears more than a passing resemblance to the Russia-gate scandal in the United States.
Controversial BBC graphic seeking to link Corbyn to Russia. (BBC)
In both countries, the establishment has been shocked by popular insurgencies on the right and left and the rise of a seeming outsider: Corbyn in Britain, and Trump (with far less cause) in the U.S. In both countries, this has provoked a shrill establishment campaign against the outsider. In both countries, the allegations which form the basis of the campaign—of anti-Semitism in the case of Corbyn, of being an agent of the Russians in the case of Trump—are to anyone with even a basic grasp of reality utterly fantastic. In neither country does the sheer absurdity of the allegations seem to matter for those who have invested in the campaign. Instead, the political class in both countries pretends to believe them, while the media has embraced them. A media effort has been made to link Corbyn to Russia too.
In both countries, interested outside powers are involved in the campaigns— Israel in the case of the anti-Semitism campaign against Corbyn in Britain, Britain and some other U.S. European allies in the Russia-gate scandal against Trump in the U.S. But the origins of both campaigns are domestic.
In both Britain and the U.S., the core electoral base of both Corbyn and Trump remains unmoved by the hysteria and the swirl of allegations, but in the meantime, real damage to the political system is being done. Both countries are unable to formulate rational foreign policies, whether with respect to the situation in the Middle East in the case of Britain, or with respect to relations with Russia in the case of the U.S.
Corbyn and the movement he leads have far deeper roots within British society than Trump does in the U.S. There has been a continuous tradition of political radicalism in Britain going back to the period of the French Revolution. Corbyn stands squarely within that tradition, a fact which is perhaps better understood in Britain than it is outside it. That tradition for the moment is rising in the case of younger Britains.
That, of course, is why, against all expectations, Corbyn, was elected leader of the Labour Party, and why, again contrary to all expectations, he increased the Labour’s share of the vote so dramatically in the June 2017 general election.
That is reason for the intensity of the campaign against him, but it also explains why he has been able to withstand it up to now. The shape of British politics in the future will be determined by whether or not he is able to continue  to do so.

Despite South Carolina issuing an evacuation order for all coastal counties ahead of category-3 hurricane Florence, the state corrections department decided Monday that it would not transfer 934 prisoners and as many as 119 staff in one prison.

Although Governor Henry McMaster lifted the evacuation order for three counties, including Jasper where the facility Ridgeland is located, these counties are still deemed evacuation zones by South Carolina Emergency Management Division.

Past history suggests this might prove disastrous. In Miami-Dade County, Florida, officials left nearly 4,500 prisoners inside facilities during Hurricane Irma in 2017, even though multiple prison facilities in that county were demolished by Hurricane Andrew in 1992. Prisoners who outlasted Hurricane Irma described cells covered in mold, urine, and feces, and prison guards spoke out about the horrors of conditions. When Hurricane Harvey hit Texas last year, prisoners experienced flooding and lacked enough drinking water and medicines.

After Hurricane Katrina in 2005, Human Rights Watch documented the nightmare nearly 600 prisoners endured in the Orleans Parish Prison compound. They told us officers chose to save themselves, while many prisoners were not evacuated for four days. Letters from prisoners detail how they were “left to die” with no food, water (except from toilets), lights or medical attention, amid chest-high contaminated water and broken gas lines. Evacuated prisoners transferred to Jena Correctional Facility were beaten and abused by officers, with some forced to lie in their own vomit.

Prisoners across 17 states, including South Carolina, concluded a two-week strike from August 21 to September 9, 2018 to pressure the country’s penal system for reform to produce “conditions of prisons and prison policies that recognize the humanity of imprisoned men and women.” Overcrowded facilities, unsafe and unsanitary environments, substandard nutrition and substandard medical care already pose a grave risk to prisoner health and safety. A hurricane will only exacerbate those risks.

State and local authorities should either evacuate prisoners from facilities in the path of the storm or explain publicly and convincingly why they are certain is safe not to. They should also know that they will be held accountable if they gamble with the safety of prisoners only to repeat the mistakes and abuses of the past.

          Meghan Markle May Have Just Performed the Ultimate Royal Duty      Cache   Translate Page      

UPDATE: Despite speculation, a source tells E! News that the viral photo is not of Meghan Markle

————

Talk about a royal duty...or is it?

CBS Miami entertainment and lifestyle reporter Lisa Petrillo posted on Twitter on Wednesday a photo of a woman wearing a casual black outfit walking a small black and white dog, which is doing its business on the concrete. The picture was taken on a public road about a third of a mile and a five to 10-minute walk from Kensington Palace, which is home to, among other royals, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.

"So incredibly enough, walking by @kensingtonroyal -we spotted this beautiful, woman with a familiar air"outside the entrance to the private residence where Harry& Meghan live . MEGHAN!? her dog was doing his business. She couldn't have been sweeter. #princessespickuppooptoo," Petrillo tweeted.

So was it really Meghan? Well, royal commentator Omid Scobie tweeted, "that's not the Duchess of Sussex," and added, "Checked with sources (plural), shared findings." TMZ also quoted a palace source as saying the woman in the photo is not Meghan and that the dog is not the duchess' either.

Meghan Markle's Best Looks

Meghan is not known to have a small black and white dog. She has a brown, black and white rescue beagle named Guy. It was recently reported she and Harry recently obtained a Labrador. Just before she moved to London to be with Harry last year, the duchess left a Labrador-Shepherd mix named Bogart to live with friends, reportedly due to his advanced age.

In addition, the entrance to Meghan and Harry's Kensington Palace residence is nowhere near the location of the photo, which is located on a road named York House Place, near a few apartment buildings that are not the homes of royalty. The surrounding areas directly around the palace are not accessible to the public and the gardens and the roads around it are typically filled with residents and tourists.

But the name of the road in the photo may lend a clue to the confusion: Harry's grandmother Queen Elizabeth II reportedly gifted the prince and Meghan a country home, York Cottage, from her Sandringham Estate, as a wedding gift.

          The 10 Best Underrated Pop Gems      Cache   Translate Page      


Here's 10 (5) underrated and overlooked pop gems by an underrated pop gem herself LIZ shared with Dummy Magazine, who also details personal insights to her choices.

10. "Radar" by Britney Spears



“OK. So, this is one of my favorite Britney songs ever. I imagine her hunting her prey as a black velvet panther. It goes down like a mango boptini with a spicy kick. The song is pop perfection, but it was never on the radio or really, truly, pushed as a single. Her label put it on two albums, 'Blackout' and 'Circus (Deluxe Version)', which makes you think they had to be considering giving it some real promo love. But alas, all us stans got was this bizarre music video where she comes off as some Eastern European pop star (you know, the kind whose mob boyfriend owns the record label she's signed to and encourages other men to gaze at her, but pulls a gun on anyone who tries to "touch").
Her styling in it is awful and they objectify a polo horse as it's getting hosed down. This might've been the era of her fake British accent, so that explains a lot. Let's pretend this video never happened, but you should definitely add this track to your playlists...you won't be sorry. #JusticeforRadar.”


9. "The Two of US" - NSYNC


“This was when JC [Chasez] was super involved in the writing process. He appreciates UK garage and that is one of the many reasons why we love him. Solid melodies and vocal production. This track really influenced a song JC and I wrote together called 'Do I Like U'.”


4. "Superlove" by Tinashe


“I was really hoping a Miami Bass pop song would take off, but I guess people weren't ready for that kinda nostalgic heat. I've been doin shit like that for years, and it's only truly appreciated in the underground. (See ‘Stop Me Cold’ and ‘Could U Love Me’).”


3. "Where Did You Go" - Ashley Parker Angel


“RIP Ashley P Angel's pop-rock solo career. The 'Soundtrack To Your Life' album was actually very well put together - it had some big-deal pop producers on it like Max Martin, Dr. Luke and The Matrix. This last track on the album always stuck out to me with its beautiful, simple melodies and lush harmonies...it made me tear up on the regular. A nightcore remix of this would be lit. Fun LOL fact: My ex-boyfriend played in Ashley's band sometimes, and I went with them to Palm Springs when they played the Miss Teen USA pageant. JoJo was also performing!!!”


2. "Casanova" - Allie X


“What a brilliant track - clever lyrics with attitude and stellar production. Their voices also blend really nicely together. Cool conceptual video too. Time and time again, Allie serves us quality alt-pop content.”


I'm actually surprised that the Ashley Parker Angel song is kinda nice.

Do you agree with LIZ's choices on her list?

          Rick Scott Is Preparing to Pack the State Supreme Court After His Term Ends      Cache   Translate Page      

On Jan. 8, 2019, a new governor of Florida will be sworn in. On that same day, three of the Florida Supreme Court’s seven justices will complete their final terms. Based on those facts alone, you might assume that the new Florida governor will have the opportunity to select these justices’ replacements. That, however, is not at all clear—because current Republican Gov. Rick Scott has declared his intent to replace them hours before his term concludes. He is now moving forward with this plan to pack the court. And the only people who can stop him are the current justices themselves.

To carry out this scheme, Scott has seized upon language in the Florida Constitution which, he asserts, gives him to power to make “midnight appointments” (as one Scott ally has described them). Under the state constitution, a new governor’s term begins “on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in January.” Meanwhile, a retiring justice’s term ends “on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in January.” Due to mandatory age limits, three justices—all left-leaning—face mandatory retirement on this date. The question is when, precisely, their retirement takes effect.

Scott insists that the justices’ terms expire at the stroke of midnight on Jan. 8, but that his own term does not end until his successor is sworn in on that day, typically at noon. Thus, he believes he will have about 12 hours to name three new justices, shifting the court to the right for a generation. Scott announced this plan when he appointed his first justice in 2016, declaring: “I will appoint three more justices on the morning I finish my term.”

Alarmed by this prospect, Common Cause and the League of Women Voters filed a lawsuit urging the Florida Supreme Court to rule that the next governor, not Scott, is constitutionally authorized to make the appointments. Their arguments are difficult to contest. The suit cites a slew of cases in which Florida courts determined that, when “a period of time expires on a date,” it expires at the end of that date. On matters ranging from the terms of a contract to the length of a legislative session, the courts have found that the clock runs out “at midnight” at the end of the final day. For instance, one case found that “when a contract requires payment by June 1, there can be no default until the clock strikes midnight on June 2.” Applied here, this rule means the retiring justices’ term runs through Jan. 8 and expires when the clock strikes midnight on Jan. 9.

Strong as this claim may be, the Florida Supreme Court has refused to entertain it. In December, the court tossed the lawsuit, holding that “the issue presented is not ripe for consideration.” Then, in a rather cryptic passage, it clarified that it could not resolve the dispute “until some action is taken by the Governor” to fill the three seats. This caveat left open the possibility that the court might reconsider the matter once Scott takes some concrete “action” to replace the retiring justices.

That time is now. On Tuesday, Scott asked Florida’s Judicial Nominating Commission to begin accepting and reviewing applications for the court. Under state law, this nine-member body will have 60 days to nominate three to six candidates for each vacancy. This means the names will be finalized shortly after the November election. Scott has stated that he will let the winner of that election interview the finalists, in the hopes that he and the governor can jointly select the justices. Incoming Republican Gov. Jeb Bush and outgoing Democratic Gov. Lawton Chiles did exactly that in 1998. But there’s virtually no chance that, if Democratic candidate Andrew Gillum wins, he and Scott will agree on the selections.

There are three further wrinkles here. First, Scott is running for Senate, and if he wins, he will be sworn in on Jan. 3, 2019, and forced to step down as governor at that time. His Lt. Gov. Carlos López-Cantera would therefore have to make the midnight appointments—lending them an even stronger whiff of illegitimacy, since he would serve as governor for less than five days. Second, the Judicial Nominating Commission is dominated by Scott appointees. Although the board has traditionally put forth candidates across the ideological spectrum, Democrats are worried that Scott’s allies will only select conservatives. As a result, even if Gillum won and secured the right to fill the three vacancies, he might have to choose from a right-leaning list.

Third—and perhaps most ominously for Florida’s democracy—Scott’s plan could lead to a bona fide constitutional crisis in which two people claim to be governor at once. Although Florida’s governors are usually sworn in around noon, their terms begin at midnight by the plain language of the state constitution. So, theoretically, if Gillum won, he would become governor at 12 a.m. on Jan. 8. But is a governor really governor until he’s sworn in? No one seems to know, and so Gillum could demand a midnight swearing-in ceremony, as past governors have, to avoid appointments chicanery.

But what if Scott (or López-Cantera) refuses to acknowledge the validity of this swearing-in? What if he insists that he remains governor until noon, and both men attempt to make dueling appointments? The only proper mediator of this dispute would be the Florida Supreme Court—the very cause of the quarrel. So the three justices in question could be asked to rule on who is governor, and whether or not it’s their final day in office on their disputed final day in office. This farcical nightmare scenario is not at all far-fetched.

It’s easy to see why Scott is so desperate to make these three appointments. Throughout his nearly eight years as governor, the Florida Supreme Court has been a thorn in his side, blocking abortion restrictions and GOP-drawn gerrymanders. If Scott can flip the court, he will leave Florida susceptible to draconian anti-abortion laws and Republican-friendly partisan districts. It’s fundamentally undemocratic for an outgoing governor to install a court on his way out the door that will neuter his successor’s agenda.

Adrian Peterson trains in Houston during the offseason Marshawn Lynch Jersey (http://www.seahawkscheapstore.com/marshawn-lynch-jersey-cheap) , even opening a megagym in his adopted hometown a couple of years ago. So it’s no surprise the star running back would love to play his 12th season in Houston. Peterson, 33, mentioned the Texans and four other teams as possible fits in a recent appearance on ESPN’s NFL Live. “You know obviously I’ve mentioned Houston a couple of times,” Peterson said. “I feel like Green Bay wouldn’t be a bad look as well. Carolina. There’s some options out there. You know Miami. Down there in [Los Angeles]. That would be a nice look, too, with Todd Gurley. You see around the league they have a two-back system. Guys are not really not pounding the ball 20, 30 times a game, so I think that leaves the door open for a couple of opportunities for me.” Peterson also recently said he would be open to a return to New Orleans. Peterson has posted his workout videos, hoping teams take notice. In truth Durham Smythe Jersey (http://www.dolphinscheapstore.com/durham-smythe-jersey-cheap) , Peterson likely would have interest in any team that shows interest in him. Drew Brees passed for 376 yards and two touchdowns, and the New Orleans Saints held off Carolina’s late comeback bid to seal a 31-26 victory in their NFC wild-card game on Sunday. The Panthers had a first down on the Saints 26-yard line with 58 seconds left, but heavy pressure by All-Pro defensive end Cameron Jordan a couple plays later induced an intentional grounding penalty on Carolina quarterback Cam Newton, making it third-and-25 on the Saints 34 and a required 10-second runoff left 22 seconds on the clock. After an incompletion in the end zone on third down, Vonn Bell sacked Newton on a safety blitz, ensuring the Saints (12-5) swept all three meetings with Carolina (11-6) this season, in addition to winning their first playoff game in four seasons. Brees’ touchdowns went for 80-yards to Ted Ginn and 9 yards to tight end Josh Hill. Fullback Zach line and running back Alvin Kamara each ran for short touchdowns. JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) – Blake Bortles put together one decent drive all day, doing as much with his legs as his arm Malcolm Mitchell Jersey (http://www.patriotscheapstore.com/malcolm-mitchell-jersey-cheap) , and the defensive-minded Jacksonville Jaguars eked out an ugly and sometimes unwatchable 10-3 victory against the Buffalo Bills in an AFC wild-card game Sunday. In the postseason for the first time since January 2008, the third-seeded Jaguars (11-6) advanced to play at No. 2 seed Pittsburgh next week. The sixth-seeded Bills (9-8) will head home after ending the longest, current playoff drought in North American professional sports. Bortles was a big reason Jacksonville won the game and a big reason it was so close. This was far from a passing clinic. It was more like a painful exercise in overcoming poor passing. KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Marcus Mariota led Tennessee to three second-half touchdowns, incredibly throwing one of his TD passes to himself , and the Titans rallied from a 21-3 deficit to beat the Kansas City Chiefs 22-21 on Saturday for their first playoff win in 14 years. Mariota threw for 205 yards and two scores, including the 22-yard go-ahead strike to Eric Decker with just over six minutes left that ushered the Titans into the divisional round of the playoffs. They’ll head to New England or Pittsburgh next week. Derrick Henry had a career-high 156 yards rushing and another score for Tennessee (10-7), while a defense that was fileted by Alex Smith and the Chiefs (10-7) during the first half pitched a shutout in the second half – dooming the Kansas City franchise to another humiliating postseason defeat. LOS ANGELES (AP) – Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons showed the upstart Los Angeles Rams what playoff poise is all about. Ryan passed for 218 yards and hit Julio Jones for an 8-yard touchdown with 5:48 to play, and the defending NFC champion Falcons advanced from the wild-card round with a methodical 26-13 victory over the Rams on Saturday night. Devonta Freeman rushed for an early score and Matt Bryant kicked four field goals for the Falcons (11-6) Brandon Coleman Jersey (http://www.saintscheapstore.com/brandon-coleman-jersey-cheap) , who spoiled the Rams’ first playoff game in 13 years while showing off the postseason poise they earned from last season’s journey to the Super Bowl. Atlanta never trailed at the Coliseum while winning playoff games in consecutive seasons for the first time in franchise history. The Falcons advanced to face the top-seeded Eagles on Saturday in Philadelphia. NBA LOS ANGELES (AP) – Brandon Ingram had 20 points and seven assists, and the Los Angeles Lakers snapped a nine-game losing streak with a 132-113 victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday night. Julius Randle had 15 points and nine rebounds in this sixth straight start, while Lonzo Ball finished with 13 points, 10 assists and six rebounds. Los Angeles led by as many as 26 points – its biggest margin this season – and enjoyed a strong shooting night. The Lakers made 55.8 percent of their field goals, and shot 44.4 percent from 3-point range. Even free throws went in for the Lakers, who came into Sunday as the worst team in the league in that category. Los Angeles made 20 of 25. COLLEGE BASKETBALL COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Keita Bates-Diop scored a career-high 32 points, and Ohio State stunned No. 1 Michigan State 80-64 on Sunday. The overachieving Buckeyes put together an electrifying 12-0 run to finish the first half and kept their foot on the gas to give first-year coach Chris Holtmann a signature win. Ohio State (13-4, 4-0 Big Ten) won for its third straight in taking down the best team it is likely to see this season. The mistake-prone Spartans (15-2 Art Shell Jersey (http://www.raiderscheapstore.com/art-shell-jersey-cheap) , 3-1) lost for the first time in the last 15 games, dating back to a seven-point loss to then-No. 1 Duke on Nov. 14. GOLF KAPALUA, Hawaii (AP) – A new year brought out the best in Dustin Johnson, who powered his way to an 8-under 65 and an eight-shot victory in the Sentry Tournament of Champions. In a field that featured the top five players in the world, Johnson made a strong opening statement that a No. 1 ranking he has held for nearly a year might be difficult to take away. Johnson stretched a two-shot lead to six shots at the turn, then delivered the biggest moment of the week with a drive on the par-4 12th hole that stopped 6 inches from the cup for a tap-in eagle. He also drove the par-4 14th hole. He finished at 24-under 268. The eight-shot margin of victory was his largest ever, and it was one short of the tournament record set by David Duval since this event moved to Kapalua in 1999. Jordan Spieth also won by eight shots in 2016. Football Jerseys Wholesale (http://www.officialusafootballs.com)

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and his wife Will Hernandez Jersey (http://www.giantscheapstore.com/will-hernandez-jersey-cheap) , the singer Ciara, have joined the effort to bring Major League Baseball to Portland. The Oregonian/OregonLive reports that Portland Diamond Project, the company leading the push, announced Friday that the husband-and-wife celebrities have each invested individually as "owner/investors" in the project. The Diamond Project's leadership has stressed that its effort will take time, estimating an opening day in Portland would come in 2022 at the earliest. MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred has called Portland a candidate to acquire a franchise whether by expansion, which hasn't happened in 20 years, or relocation. Though Wilson is an NFL quarterback, he has a connection to baseball. He played in the minor leagues while in college and practiced with the Texas Rangers during spring training in March. The last round of this year’s Subway Series has been delayed. The season finale between the New York Mets and New York Yankees was postponed because of rain Sunday night and will be made up on Aug. 13 at 7:05 p.m., previously an off day for both teams. The Yankees will be in the middle of a long homestand anyway Alec Ogletree Jersey (http://www.giantscheapstore.com/alec-ogletree-jersey-cheap) , although the makeup game means they’ll now play 20 days in a row during that stretch. The Mets, meanwhile, will make a one-game pit stop in the Bronx between trips to Miami and Baltimore on a lengthy road swing that ends in Philadelphia. With steady rain falling, a tarp covered the infield all evening and play never began. The game was called about an hour after the scheduled 8:05 p.m. start. It was the 42nd postponement in the majors this year, already more than all of last season. Mets ace Jacob deGrom (5-4), who leads the majors with a 1.68 ERA, had been slated to pitch against Yankees right-hander Masahiro Tanaka (7-2, 4.54). But thanks to the bad weather, Aaron Judge and the Bronx Bombers were spared the task of facing deGrom Obi Melifonwu Jersey (http://www.raiderscheapstore.com/obi-melifonwu-jersey-cheap) , who is 0-2 with an 8.03 ERA in two career starts at Yankee Stadium. ”He’s a tough customer, obviously. A great pitcher,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone said. ”Look, any time we take the field we feel like we have a real good chance no matter who’s out there, especially at home. So you don’t like stacking up these doubleheaders and now a makeup game and those type of things. But obviously, tonight was a tough matchup for sure.” Boone said All-Star righty Luis Severino will stay on his regular turn Monday night at Tampa Bay, with Tanaka going Tuesday. Severino had already traveled down to Florida ahead of the team to get a normal night’s sleep. Veteran left-hander CC Sabathia will be pushed back from Tuesday to Friday, when he will pitch at home against lowly Kansas City on his bobblehead night. ”I think it will be fun,” Sabathia said. ”My mom’s excited about it Sony Michel Jersey (http://www.patriotscheapstore.com/sony-michel-jersey-cheap) , my grandmother’s excited. So I think it will be good.” Sabathia turned 38 on Saturday and the Yankees wanted to take the opportunity to give him extra rest. ”It really benefits him,” Boone said. ”Just with his knee and maintenance.” Sabathia gets lubricant injections to help alleviate discomfort in his troublesome knee. He received one right before the All-Star break and said he thought it was his third one this season. ”The more time I can give that thing and just let the medicine move around, it will react better,” Sabathia said. ”Any time you get a chance to get some rest, I think it’s key – especially for me at this point in the season. I’m welcoming the rest for sure.” The second-place Yankees (63-34) are five games behind major league-leading Boston in the AL East, three in the loss column. Sabathia said it would be ”shocking” if they don’t make a deal before the July 31 trade deadline. ”We always do something,” he explained. ”But I think we have the guys in there if they don’t do anything to get it done.” Last in the NL East, the Mets rescheduled deGrom for Monday night at home against San Diego. Zack Wheeler had originally been slated to start that game. The crosstown rivals split two games over the weekend, giving the Yankees a 3-2 lead in their six-game season series. ROSTER MOVE The Yankees recalled RHP Giovanny Gallegos from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

MIAMI. El cantante español Enrique Iglesias reconoció este miércoles que, aunque sigue disfrutando sus giras, se le está haciendo difícil salir de viaje desde que nacieron sus gemelos, Lucy y Nicholas, en diciembre de 2017.

“Ahora que tengo niños, que tengo bebés, me cuesta muchísimo, un poquito, viajar”, dijo Iglesias, de 43 años, en una entrevista con en el programa Un nuevo día, de la cadena de televisión estadounidense Telemundo.

Aunque pareció vacilar sobre el peso que le representa seguir de gira tras convertirse en padre el 16 de diciembre de 2017, el madrileño no tuvo reparos en reconocer que, como sucede en las familias con niños pequeños, “todo gira en torno a ellos”.

A pesar de la nostalgia que siente cuando está alejado de su familia, Iglesias ya tiene programados varios conciertos lejos de su casa en Miami para los últimos meses, y entre el 30 de septiembre y el 11 de noviembre actuará en Ucrania, Irlanda, Inglaterra, Bulgaria, Bélgica, Holanda y Francia.

El cantautor, quien dará dos conciertos en el teatro Caesars Palace de Las Vegas (EE.UU.) los días 15 y 16 de septiembre, en el marco de las celebraciones de la Independencia de México en la ciudad, aseguró que todavía le llama la atención el entusiasmo de sus seguidores.

          What do Church abuse policies mean by 'vulnerable adult'?      Cache   Translate Page      

Denver, Colo., Sep 12, 2018 / 01:00 pm (CNA).- A Vatican summit on abuse prevention next February will gather the presidents of bishops’ conferences from around the world. While a Sept. 12 statement from the Vatican said the gathering’s theme would be the “protection of minors,” a Vatican spokesperson clarified that the meeting would discuss “prevention of abuse of minors and vulnerable adults.”

Wednesday’s announcement of the meeting has raised questions about who the Church considers to be a “vulnerable adult.”

The USCCB’s “Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People,” does not use the term “vulnerable adult.” Nor do the “Essential Norms for Diocesan/Eparchial Policies Dealing with Allegations of Sexual Abuse of Minors by Priests or Deacons,” which is the document that sets Church policy for addressing sex abuse allegations in the United States.

Several dioceses, do, however, define the term in their own sexual abuse policies.

Policies of the Archdiocese of St. Paul-Minneapolis say that: “‘Vulnerable Adult’ means persons with physical, mental or emotional conditions that render them unable to defend or protect themselves, or get help when at risk of harm.”

In the Archdiocese of Louisville, “an adult 18 years or older is considered vulnerable when, because of impairment of mental or physical functions, that person is unable or unlikely to report abuse or neglect without assistance.”

The Archdiocese of Miami defines a “vulnerable person” as “a minor under 18 years of age or a person whose ability to perform normal activities of daily living is impaired due to a mental, emotional, long-term physical or developmental disability or dysfunction, or brain damage, or the infirmities of aging.”

The Archdiocese of Washington’s policies for child protection say that “a vulnerable individual over the age of seventeen (17) is also covered by this policy…when such a person is unable or unlikely to report abuse without assistance because of impairment of physical or mental function or emotional status.”

Edward Mechmann, director of the Safe Environment Program in the Archdiocese of New York, told CNA that the archdiocese considers a vulnerable person to be “a person of any age who lacks the capacity to give consent due to a mental or developmental condition or disability.”

The Code of Canon Law does not use or define the term “vulnerable adult.” However, the Church’s 2010 “Norms on delicta graviora” say that “a person who habitually lacks the use of reason is to be considered equivalent to a minor” with regard to allegations of clerical sexual abuse.  

The February summit was announced in the wake of clerical sexual misconduct allegations across the Church involving minors, as well as allegations of misconduct that targeted seminarians, priests, and other adults.

On Aug. 14, a Pennsylvania grand jury released a report documenting 70 years of sexual abuse allegations in six dioceses in that state. On Sept. 12, a report from the German bishops’ conference documented allegations of clerical sexual abuse during a similar time period.

On June 20, the Archdiocese of New York announced that it had deemed credible an allegation that Archbishop Theodore McCarrick had serially sexually abused a teenage boy in the 1970s. Subsequent reports, however, allege that McCarrick had serially sexually coerced and assaulted seminarians and young priests during decades of his episcopal ministry in New Jersey and Washington, D.C.

Mechmann told CNA that the term “vulnerable adult” as his archdiocese defines it, “would not include seminarians. It is really aimed at protecting people who have developmental disabilities or cognitive disabilities for instance someone who is suffering from Alzheimer's disease.”

“A sound diocesan policy however would also encompass any kind of non-consensual sexual conduct, even if it is not strictly covered by the Charter,” Mechmann added.

The Archdiocese of New York’s “Policy on Sexual Misconduct” includes in its definition of sexual misconduct “any sexual act with another person without consent,” as well as “any sexual conduct that is a violation of civil law.”
 
Deacon Bernie Nojadera, executive director of the USCCB’s office for child and youth protection, told CNA that several U.S. dioceses use the definition of “vulnerable adult” provided by civil law.

That definition often refers to a “dependent adult,” he said.

Nojadera noted that “there is nothing in [the Charter] that talks about differential of power. So if you’re looking at differential of power, that’s not addressed in the Charter.”

“That’s where applicability of state law comes in, with regard to the differential of power. A lot of dioceses are looking at their state laws and trying to apply them accordingly,” he said.

With regard to allegations of abuse involving seminarians and other adults, he said he thinks “it would be wise for those types of situations to also be brought forward” at the February meeting of bishops.

“I would hope that there would be a seat at the table for seminarians and for that issue to be addressed,” he told CNA.

In addition to the abuse of minors, vulnerable adults, seminarians, and other adults, Nojadera noted other situations that could, in his view, be addressed, mentioning the difficulties faced by the children of priests, the use of corporal punishment in the Church, and situations involving religious orders.

He also mentioned the importance of consulting with victims of clerical sexual abuse.

“I would hope that survivor victims were invited to this table as well, to be able to address [the meeting],” he said.

Nojadera said that his office often looks for insights from victims of clerical sexual abuse, calling their perspective “invaluable.”

“There’s an awareness that those who have not been abused do not have.”

He also encouraged broader lay involvement in discussions about sexual misconduct in the Church. “The lay faithful have been offering to help and contribute to the solution to this,” he said.

Nojadera said he hopes the February summit will take an expansive view of abuse-related problems in the Church.

“I think we have an opportunity here to just talk about abuse in general. Period.”

“Hopefully,” he said, “they’ll have an opportunity to see the big picture.”

 


          The Money Laundering Question      Cache   Translate Page      
The Money Laundering Question

by digby






David Leonhardt in the New York Times brings up the elephant in the room:


Donald Trump has a long history of doing what he thinks is best for Donald Trump. If he needs to discard friends, allies or wives along the way, so be it. “I’m a greedy person,” he has explained.

It’s important to keep this trait in mind when trying to make sense of the Russia story. Trump’s affinity for Russia, after all, is causing problems for him. It has created tensions with his own staff and his Republican allies in Congress. Most voters now believe he has something to hide. And the constant talk of Russia on television clearly enrages Trump.

He could make his life easier if only he treated Vladimir Putin the way he treats most people who cause problems — and cast Putin aside. Yet Trump can’t bring himself to do so.

This odd refusal is arguably the biggest reason to believe that Putin really does have leverage over Trump. Maybe it’s something shocking, like a sex tape or evidence of campaign collusion by Trump himself. Or maybe it’s the scandal that’s been staring us in the face all along: Illicit financial dealings — money laundering — between Trump’s business and Russia.


The latest reason to be suspicious is Trump’s attacks on a formerly obscure Justice Department official named Bruce Ohr. Trump has repeatedly criticized Ohr and called for him to be fired. Ohr’s sin is that he appears to have been marginally involved in inquiries into Trump’s Russian links. But Ohr fits a larger pattern. In his highly respected three-decade career in law enforcement, he has specialized in going after Russian organized crime.

It just so happens that most of the once-obscure bureaucrats whom Trump has tried to discredit also are experts in some combination of Russia, organized crime and money laundering.

It’s true of Andrew McCabe (the former deputy F.B.I. director whose firing Trump successfully lobbied for), Andrew Weissmann (the only official working for Robert Mueller whom Trump singles out publicly) and others. They are all Trump bogeymen — and all among “the Kremlin’s biggest adversaries in the U.S. government,” as Natasha Bertrand wrote in The Atlantic. Trump, she explained, seems to be trying to rid the government of experts in Russian organized crime.

I realize that this evidence is only circumstantial and well short of proof. But it’s one of many suspicious patterns about Trump and Russia. When you look at them together, it’s hard to come away thinking that the most likely explanation is coincidence.

Consider: The financially rickety Trump Organization, shunned by most mainstream banks, long relied on less scrupulous Russian investors. “Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross-section of a lot of our assets,” Donald Trump Jr. said a decade ago. “We have all the funding we need out of Russia,” Eric Trump reportedly said in 2013. And what was the rare major bank to work with Trump? Deutsche Bank, which has a history of illegal Russian money laundering.

Trump also had a habit of selling real estate to Russians in all-cash deals. Money launderers like such deals, because they can turn illegally earned cash into a legitimate asset, usually at an inflated price that rewards the seller for the risk. One especially dubious deal was Trump’s $95 million sale of a Palm Beach house to a Russian magnate in 2008 — during the housing bust, only four years after Trump had bought the house for $41 million.

Then there is Trump’s paranoia about scrutiny of his businesses. He has refused to release his tax returns. He said that Mueller’s investigation would cross a red line by looking into his finances. When word leaked (incorrectly) that Mueller had subpoenaed Deutsche Bank’s records on Trump, he moved to fire Mueller (only to be dissuaded by aides). Trump is certainly acting as if his business history contains damaging information.

Leonhardt speaks with Adam Schiff who wants to investigate all this in the ew congress.

This movie goes into it:

Moradores da costa leste dos Estados Unidos permanecem deixando o litoral nesta quarta-feira (12), devido à aproximação do furacão Florence do local. Segundo informações da CNN, o fenômeno está se movendo sobre o Oceano Atlântico, com ventos contínuos de 225 km/h, e pode ser o pior furacão a atingir o país em décadas. Até agora, o governo obrigou cerca de 1,7 milhão de pessoas a evacuar as cidades da região.

O Centro Nacional de Furacões informou hoje que o furacão Florence deve atingir a costa sul da Carolina do Norte entre a noite de quinta e a manhã de sexta-feira (14), já sendo classificado na categoria 4, em uma escala de furacões que vai até 5. Estima-se que, ao longo desse período, os ventos percam forças.

A previsão é de que o fenômeno provoque ondas enormes, chuvas torrenciais de 89 centímetros e inundações grandiosas em partes dos estados de Carolina do Sul, Carolina do Norte e Virgínia, nos EUA.

"Esta tempestade é grandiosa, nunca presenciamos nada assim anteriormente”, disse o governador da Carolina do Norte, Roy Cooper, em um comunicado de alerta emitido na terça-feira (11). "Mesmo que já tenhamos enfrentado furacões antes, este será diferente. Não arrisquem suas vidas lutando contra um ‘monstro’”, acrescentou, aconselhando os americanos.

Americanos se preparam para enfrentar furacão Florence nos próximos dias

Avisos sobre furacões são geralmente emitidos 36 horas antes de a tempestade tropical atingirem as áreas. Neste caso, os alertas apontaram perigos de inundação com risco de morte por causa do aumento da água, que se desloca da costa para o interior da região.

A mídia americana ressaltou que, depois das emissões de alerta, moradores das cidades a serem afetadas lotaram postos de gasolina e esvaziaram as prateleiras dos supermercados.  De acordo com a reportagem da CNN, muitos residentes ficaram apavorados e evacuaram rapidamente, enquanto outros, como Allison Jones, ficaram na dúvida se deveriam ou não sair.

Jones alegou que a casa onde mora com o marido, seis filhos, um cachorro e um gato, fica em Hillsborough, Carolina do Norte, e pode ser destruída por fortes inundações. A mulher destacou que outros familiares que moram próximos a ela já deixaram a cidade, levando o máximo de itens de valor que conseguiram.

"Decidimos deixar nossa casa na quarta-feira. Busquei pegar tudo de valor sentimental, como álbum de fotos e os brinquedos preferidos das crianças. Fico me perguntando se isso será tudo o que nos restará. Eu gostaria de ter mais tempo", disse.

Tim Terman e sua família moram em Southport, Carolina do Norte, e também demoraram a seguir as recomendações das autoridades. Terman afirmou que deixar a casa onde viveu durante anos está sendo difícil, já que não sabe se irá encontrá-la quando voltar. "Depois de sair, é difícil voltar para verificar os danos. Essa casa é tudo o que minha família e eu temos, materialmente falando, uma vida inteira de conquistas está nela”, lamentou.

 O prefeito de Carolina Beach, Joe Benson, acredita que metade dos moradores tenha permanecido na ilha mesmo após as orientações de evacuação.

And to think that, ostensibly, Pepe was hired because residents we were dissatisfied with the legal fees our small city had to pay. Little did we know that Pepe would be Stoddard's consigliere, that became apparent pretty quickly after he sat down on that dais. The previous SM city attorneys were required to present bills for services, exactly like an "independent contract lawyer". It would give residents an idea of exactly what he/she was working on at the time and how much it all cost. I asked to include this billing to be presented again at commission meetings, but evidently Stoddard, Welsh and Liebman, did not see the need. So the taxpayers gave this creepy band of merry men free reign over South Miami. The results are evident by all to see. Instead of have a government that takes care of people and safe neighborhoods it was kissing up to lawyers and developers with a the new rule "how dense and how tall" can we go.

          PITTSBURGH -- The steady stream of bold-faced names heading to injured reserve shows      Cache   Translate Page      
PITTSBURGH -- The steady stream of bold-faced names heading to injured reserve shows no signs of abating for the Pittsburgh Penguins. Authentic Raptors Jerseys . Thankfully for the Penguins, neither is Sidney Crosby. Crosbys 19th goal of the season broke a tie with just over 6 minutes remaining and Pittsburgh edged the Toronto Maple Leafs 3-1 on Monday night for their fourth straight victory. Chris Conner and Brandon Sutter also scored for the Penguins, who were playing without a number of regulars, including forward Evgeni Malkin. "We keep finding ways," Crosby said. "A lot has to do with the way the (new guys) are playing." Pittsburgh took the ice with a handful of players who have spent the majority of the season at Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the American Hockey League and only one defenceman -- Matt Niskanen -- with more than one year of NHL experience. It hardly mattered on a night the Penguins kept the speedy Maple Leafs in check. Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 25 shots for Pittsburgh to improve to 27-3 in his past 30 home starts. Pittsburgh has won four straight and nine of 10. "Its a pretty unique situation," Niskanen said. "One rookie and five young guys playing. ... These guys have been coming up and playing with confidence and doing a good job. Thats exciting for the organization." Morgan Rielly scored the first goal of his career for the Maple Leafs. Jonathan Bernier made 28 saves, but couldnt stop Toronto from losing for the fourth time in its past five games. "We just werent sharp," Maple Leafs coach Randy Carlyle said. The Penguins have a firm grip on the top of the Metropolitan Division despite a series of injuries to high-profile players. Kris Letang joined fellow defenceman Brooks Orpik (concussion), Paul Martin (broken leg) and Rob Scuderi (broken ankle) on the IR Monday with an upper-body injury of his own, forcing coach Dan Bylsma to get creative with his pairings. Rookie Philip Samuelsson, whose father Ulf won a pair of Stanley Cups with the Penguins in the early 1990s, made his NHL debut against the Maple Leafs. The younger Samuelsson received a quick lesson from his teammates on the level of expectation from Brian Dumoulin, playing in just the second game of his career. Dumoulin helped give the Penguins a quick 1-0 lead, collecting the puck near the point then firing it on net, allowing Conner to jab it by Bernier for his third goal of the season 39 seconds into the game. The tally seemed to embolden Pittsburgh, which controlled play for long stretches in the first period, keeping Bernier busy while the defence did a fine job of neutralizing Torontos speedy counterattack. The Maple Leafs tied it 6:03 into the second as Rielly, the fifth overall pick in the 2012 draft, skated through the Pittsburgh zone and beat Fleury over the goaltenders right shoulder for the highly regarded defencemans first career goal. The power-play score ended the Penguins streak of 18 consecutive penalty kills, though the score had less to do with any kind of breakdown and more to do with Riellys wicked wrist shot. Toronto kept the pressure on well into the third period, but Pittsburgh regained control after killing off an illegal check to the head penalty on Robert Bortuzzo, who levelled Maple Leaf forward Jerry DAmigo during a collision near centre ice. The 6-foot-4 defenceman, who has struggled to crack the lineup, shook off the penalty and even picked up his first point of the season on Crosbys winner. The Maple Leafs won the draw deep in their zone but Bortuzzo knocked down the clearing attempt then fed the puck up the wall to Pascal Dupuis, who slipped a quick pass to Crosby between the circles. "There was a lot of room there," Crosby said. "(Dupuis) made a great pass on my tape and I found the back of the net. Sutters short-handed empty-net goal with 3 seconds left sealed it and the Penguins remained hot while the Maple Leafs couldnt back up a promising 7-3 romp over defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago on Saturday night. "We were a little inconsistent, but we did do some good things," Torontos Dion Phaneuf said. "Weve got to capitalize on the power play and do some things better." NOTES: Toronto finished 1 of 5 on the power play. ... The Penguins are 13-1 when leading after the first period. ... Pittsburgh has won eight straight games at Consol Energy Center. ... The Maple Leafs begin a three-game homestand on Tuesday against Florida. ... Pittsburgh forward Jason Megna left with a lower body injury and did not return. He is not expected to play Wednesday when the Penguins face the Rangers in New York. Jakob Poeltl Jersey . The Mavericks avoided a season sweep by the Nuggets, who ran away with a win in Denver two weeks ago to hand Dallas its longest losing streak at three games. Dallas (42-28) got a boost in the playoff race when Miami rallied from seven down in the last 3 1/2 minutes to beat Memphis 91-86 Friday night. Serge Ibaka Jersey . Those who impressed in each of the three events were asked to attend the main CFL Combine which begins Friday in Toronto. http://www.cheapraptorsjerseyschina.com/...ry-jersey/ . -- Green Bay wide receiver Greg Jennings will be on the sideline as the Packers make their push for a perfect regular season.NEW YORK -- Aaron Hill was ready to wait all night to get this game in. Hill had a two-run homer wiped out by a rain storm that postponed the Arizona Diamondbacks and New York Mets in the fourth inning on Friday night after a delay of 2 hours, 11 minutes. "To get a win ... yeah," Hill said. "We need a few of those." The game will be made up as part of a single-admission doubleheader on Sunday. The first game will start at 1:10 p.m. Manager Kirk Gibson said the Diamondbacks, who are in last place in the NL West at 18-31, will likely call up a pitcher for the makeup start Sunday. The Mets will go with Daisuke Matsuzaka in the second game of the traditional twinbill. Rafael Montero will make his regularly scheduled start in the opener against Bronson Arroyo. Matsuzaka has been pitching out of the bullpen this season but the converted starter doesnt see going deep into the game as a problem. "I pitched yesterday but just one inning, did not throw too many pitches," Matsuzaka said through a translator. "I do not think 100 pitches should be a problem" The Diamondbacks are flying back to Arizona after the game Sunday. They host the San Diego Padres on Monday night but the doubleheader was the only option for the teams that do not meet again this season. They have no common days off the rest of the way. "Id rather stay," and wait it out, Gibson said, "but I can see it was raining." Last seasons series between the teams at Citi Field was also plagued by rain. "Good old New York," Hill said. Hill gave Arizona the lead in the second inning with a homer off Bartolo Colon that just cleared the fence in left field. Rookie Chase Anderson allowed one hit and a walk in his third big league start for the Diamondbacks. Dark clouds rolled in during the bottom of the third inning and the public address announcer made a request for fans sitting in exposed areas to move to protected areas. After Colon pitched a perfect fourth, thhe grounds crew brought out the tarp and rain began to fall shortly after. C.J. Miles Jersey. The Mets swept the Diamondbacks in a three-game series in Arizona April 14-16, but the teams are in very different places now. The Mets are 6-14 in May while the D-backs are 9-9 even though they were just dropped three straight at St. Louis. Hill connected on a two-seam fastball from Colon after Miguel Montero led off with a nubber up the third base line for a hit. Mets manager Terry Collins before the game talked about how Colon, who turns 41 Saturday, needs to use his off-speed pitches more to be effective. He started out Hill with a slider then threw him four straight two-seamers. Colon has had an up and down start to his first year in New York. He gave up two runs in eight innings in his previous start, a win over Washington, but yielded seven runs in 5 2-3 innings against the Yankees five days earlier. He entered 3-5 with a 5.34 ERA. Anderson gave up a two-out single to David Wright in the first and walked former Diamondbacks outfielder Chris Young leading off the second. Wilmer Flores grounded into a 5-4-3 double play to end the inning and Anderson was perfect in the third. "I felt like I was starting to roll after that third inning," Anderson said. "If we went to the fourth, fifth, I felt pretty good." NOTES: Mets C Travis dArnaud (concussion) took BP on the field. His next step before getting MLB doctors approval is catching a bullpen session. When he is finally cleared to play in games, Collins thinks dArnaud will need 8-10 rehab at-bats. ...

          LOS ANGELES -- Steve Mason posted his second shutout in three games with 35 saves and      Cache   Translate Page      
LOS ANGELES -- Steve Mason posted his second shutout in three games with 35 saves and Wayne Simmonds scored his 100th NHL goal, leading the Philadelphia Flyers to a 2-0 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday. Blaine Gabbert Jersey . It was the 22nd career shutout and third this season for Mason, who stopped 33 shots in a 5-0 win against Detroit last Tuesday after getting pulled by coach Craig Berube in two of his previous three starts. Mason got a break with less than 3 1/2 minutes left, when Justin Williams tried a wraparound and hit the left post. Claude Giroux added his 17th goal on a power play with 1:58 left, converting a cross-ice pass at the left of the crease from Scott Hartnell while Matt Greene was serving an interference penalty. The Flyers have scored a power-play goal in six straight games. The Kings have scored fewer than three goals in 16 of 20 games since their 25-8-4 start, and are 5-13-2 during that stretch with five shutout losses. They have only three goals in their past six games combined, all of them by Anze Kopitar. The Flyers had managed only five shots on net before Simmonds got his 18th goal at 7:48 of the first period. Jonathan Quick, who faced only 13 shots, overplayed Vincent Lecavalier at the right of the crease along with Kings defenceman Jake Muzzin following a turnover by the Kings in their zone, and Simmonds slammed the puck into a wide-open net. The Kings Robyn Regehr played in his 1,000th NHL regular-season game, becoming the 98th defenceman in NHL history to reach that plateau, and the club marked the occasion with a pregame ceremony. Regehrs first game was Oct. 28, 1999, with the Calgary Flames at Ottawa. Among those taking part in Saturdays ceremony were former Calgary teammate Craig Conroy and Regehrs grandmother, who wore a Flames jersey with his old No. 28. It was the first meeting between the Kings and Flyers since Oct. 15, 2011, when Los Angeles won 3-2. Saturday also was a reunion for Kings centre Jeff Carter, whom the Flyers traded to Columbus on June 23, 2011 -- the same day they dealt Richards to Los Angeles. Eight months later, the Kings acquired Richards by sending Jack Johnson to the Blue Jackets. Carter and Richards led Los Angeles to its first Stanley Cup title in 2012, two years after helping the Flyers get to the finals. NOTES: Richards has one goal in his past 32 games, and that one came on the power play. Carter has no goals in his past six games, following a four-game goal streak. ... Kings C Colin Fraser is one of seven forwards in the league to have played 30 or more games this season without scoring a goal -- and average at least nine minutes of ice time. ... The Kings are 19-3-0 when scoring more than two goals. ... Among the numerous Kings-Flyers connections is fan favourite Ian Laperriere, who played eight-plus seasons with Los Angeles and is now an assistant coach with Philadelphia. Dion Lewis Jersey . As TSN reported Thursday, the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport is under intense pressure from the federal government to focus drug testing on athletes who compete in international events representing Canada. Since funding for the tests has been frozen and the cost of testing can eclipse $1,000 per test, university athletes in a number of sports are being tested less often. Malcolm Butler Titans Jersey . The English Football Association had charged the German right back with violent conduct after retrospectively reviewing video evidence of an incident that was missed by match officials at Craven Cottage on Saturday. http://www.titansstoreonline.com/Black-5...ns-Jersey/ . Murray, the defending champion and No. 3 seed, claimed his first match win at Queens in 2005 and went on to win the Wimbledon warmup three times. But he failed to take advantage of eight set points after leading the first-set tiebreaker 6-2, and Stepanek survived to convert with his second set point. The Bruins and Stars hooked up for a blockbuster summer trade, a seven-player deal, headlined by a third-year scoring forward who was the second overall pick in the 2010 Draft. Numbers Game breaks down the deal sending Tyler Seguin and Rich Peverley to Dallas for a package of players including Loui Eriksson and three prospects. The Stars Get: C/RW Tyler Seguin, C/RW Rich Peverley and D Ryan Button. Seguin, 21, was maligned for his 2013 playoff performance, when he scored one goal in 22 games, yet has 45 goals and 99 points over the last two seasons. His 36 even-strength goals over the last two years is tied for 14th. Despite that production, at that age, the Bruins were definitely not satisfied with Seguin and once his name had appeared in trade rumours, Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli told the Boston Globe that he hoped it would serve as a wake-up call, that Seguin would, "Become more of a professional." Chiarelli continued, "And you know what? I can say that about a lot of 21-year-olds. I know he got criticized for playing on the periphery and all that stuff. He did. Hes got to commit to being a professional and focusing on the game." When Seguin is focused on the game, hes a dynamic offensive talent, with the speed and shot to be among the most dangerous offensive players in the league. Like many of the Bruins top players, Seguin dominated in terms of puck possession over the last two seasons. Moving to Dallas, Seguin figures to pair with Jamie Benn on the Stars top line. Seguin has played right wing for the vast majority of his time in Boston, so an opportunity to play in the middle will be different. He played centre in junior, but hasnt yet had that responsibility in the NHL. Leading right wing candidates could be first-round pick Valeri Nichushkin, veterans Ray Whitney or Erik Cole or perhaps another addition to the Stars roster this summer. Seguin also figures to see a boost in ice time. He played just under 17 minutes per game over the past two seasons in Boston, but could easily see that push closer to 20 minutes per game with the Stars. Seguins six-year, $34-million contract extension kicks in this season, a $5.75-million cap hit per season. If hes a number one centre, scoring 70-plus points per season, thats a very reasonable return on investment. If he becomes better than a point-per-game guy, then thats a big win for Big D. Peverley turns 31 next week and is coming off a poor season in which he, and Bostons third line in general, struggled. Since being picked up on waivers by Atlanta, from Nashville, in 2008-2009, Peverley has 191 points in 307 games (a pace of 51 points per 82 games), but managed just 18 points in 47 games last season thanks, in part, to a career-low shooting percentage of 6.3% (his 5v5 on-ice shooting percentage was an abysmal, and unlucky, 4.63%). Where Peverley remains excellent, is in the faceoff circle, as hes won at least 55.0% of his draws in each of the last four seasons, including 58.4% last season, which ranked ninth among players with at least 200 face-offs in 2013. With the Stars, Peverley will fit into a second-line centre role, where he will be expected to contribute more offensively. The opportunity will certainly be there for Peverley to bounce back. Part of the incentive for Boston to move Peverley is that his contract still has two years, at a cap hit of $3.25-million per season, remaining. If he was producing, that would be one thing, but for a Bruins team without huge cap room, it made sense to include Peverleys contract in order to gain more financial flexibility heading into free agency. Ryan Button is only 22, but has spent two pro seasons splitting time between the AHL and ECHL, so his inclusion in the deal is more about keeping room on the Bruins reserve list than anything else. Perhaps Button gets some regular work in the AHL with Texas but, barring a sudden turnaround in his new locale, hes not going to be a factor when evaluating this trade. Dallas took a swing for the fences, going after a young player who has already shown that he can score in the NHL. If Seguin pans out as a first line scoring centre -- and he should -- then it will be hard to argue that they didnt get what they wanted out of the deal. The Bruins Get: LW/RW Loui Eriksson, RW Reilly Smith, D Joe Morrow and RW Matt Fraser. Eriksson, who turns 28 in a couple weeks, haas been a strong two-way player and regarded as underrated for so long that hes probably closer to properly rated now. Bennie Logan Titans Jersey. Hes able to play both wings, in all situations, and has logged just under 20 minutes per game for the Stars over the last five seasons, a time during which hes scored 130 goals, the same as Alex Burrows, two more than Patrick Kane and two fewer than Martin St. Louis. With vacancies abound on right wing in Boston (in addition to Seguin and Peverley departing, Jaromir Jagr and Nathan Horton are free agents), Eriksson is likely to move into a spot alongside Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand, one of the leagues most formidable two-way lines. Erikssons contract runs for three more seasons and while the salary is a little higher ($4.6-million this year, $4.5-million in the last two years), the cap hit is an economical $4.25-million. In addition to being a quality player, Eriksson provides value relative to the salary cap. A 22-year-old winger who scored 58 goals in 77 games in his last two collegiate seasons at Miami, Reilly Smith had a solid start to his pro career, scoring 35 points in 45 AHL games, before adding nine points in 37 games, along with strong possession stats, at the NHL level. Ideally, for the Bruins, Smith would be able to step in and fill a scoring role next season, but that could be asking too much from an unproven young player. Smith is still on an entry-level deal that will pay him $900,000 in the NHL. Acquired from the Pittsburgh Penguins in the Brenden Morrow trade last season, 20-year-old Joe Morrow had a bit of a rocky first pro season. The 23rd overall pick in 2011, Morrow is an offensive defenceman who needs time to round out the rest of his game if hes going to make the jump. He offers upside as a puck-moving, point-producing defenceman, but isnt ready to provide immediate help to a Stanley Cup contender. A winger with good size who scored 70 goals in 135 AHL games over the last two seasons, Matt Fraser has also chipped in three points in 13 games with Dallas over the past two years. Frasers defensive game could use some work as well, but with continued improvement in that regard, he could give the Bruins another option up front. Sending a $9-million salary cap hit to Dallas, while taking back $4.25-million (not counting Smiths two-way deal), gives the Bruins room to maneuver financially. According to http://www.capgeek.com, they have nearly $56.9-million committed to the 2013-2014 salary cap for 19 players (including more than $4-million for Marc Savard, who will go on long-term injured reserve), leaving enough room to sign restricted free agent goaltender Tuukka Rask and bid for a scoring winger. There have been rumours about the Bruins having interest in older guys, like Daniel Alfredsson, or re-signing Jagr, but this move could also free them up to join the fray bidding on David Clarkson. How the Bruins spend their money will go a long way towards determining the value from this trade because, straight up, its going to be very difficult for Eriksson and prospects to provide more value than Seguin will deliver to Dallas. Its understandable that the Bruins took the stance that they did on a young player that they didnt think was taking his job as seriously as he should, particularly when they have a veteran group that they expect to contend for the Stanley Cup, but its very risky. Its surely been happening forever but, in recent years, allegations and Deadspin reports have swirled around the likes of Patrick Kane, Mike Richards and Jeff Carter, all of whom have been Cup winners, Kane with the Chicago Blackhawks, who didnt trade him after a highly-publicized weekend in Wisconsin last spring, and Carter and Richards with Los Angeles in 2012, after the Flyers reportedly had their own concerns. Sometimes, a young player may need a trade to humble them and teach them just how high the stakes are in pro hockey, and if that happens for Seguin, the Bruins will come to regret the deal in the long run (if it happens quickly, then they could regret it even sooner). The decision they made, however, was apparently based on something that they werent prepared to accept with their current group.

          NEW YORK -- Mets closer Bobby Parnell was placed on the 15-day disabled list Wednesda      Cache   Translate Page      
NEW YORK -- Mets closer Bobby Parnell was placed on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday with a partially torn elbow ligament and will be sidelined until at least late May. Fred Warner Jersey . Parnell will be out much longer if it turns out he needs surgery. But first, he will try resting for two weeks before beginning a throwing program that could last up to a month, general manager Sandy Alderson said. If that doesnt heal Parnells right elbow sufficiently, he likely would require surgery. "Its conceivable, I guess, that we would cut that off earlier than four weeks if we thought he wasnt making progress," Alderson said. "Theres always the risk that it will completely tear. But because of the location, the doctors were comfortable with the conservative approach." The move was made retroactive to April 1. New York selected the contract of veteran right-hander Kyle Farnsworth from Triple-A Las Vegas and added him to a suspect bullpen that flopped on opening day. Alderson said some of the clubs starters at Las Vegas will pitch out of the bullpen over the next couple of months to get accustomed to that role. That probably will not include top prospect Noah Syndergaard. "We have some great arms and at some point it will be important for us to see them," Alderson said. In other moves, second baseman Daniel Murphy was placed on paternity leave and the Mets recalled infielder Wilmer Flores from Las Vegas. Flores started at second against Washington left-hander Gio Gonzalez. Chris Young, who missed the opener with what was described as a minor right quadriceps strain, made his first start for the Mets but never came to bat. Young played the first inning in left field before he was lifted for Andrew Brown in the top of the second. Three innings later, the Mets announced Young left the game with tightness in his right quad. Young joined the team as a free agent in the off-season, signing a $7.25 million, one-year contract. Murphy is expected back in time for Thursdays matinee. He and his wife, Victoria, welcomed a baby boy named Noah on Monday. To make room for Farnsworth on the 40-man roster, the Mets sent right-hander Ryan Reid outright to the minors. Parnell threw 25 pitches in the season opener Monday against the Nationals and blew a save, giving up Denard Spans tying double in the ninth. New York lost 9-7 in 10 innings. It was the right-handers first save opportunity since a neck injury that eventually required surgery sidelined him for the final two months last season. Parnell complained of tightness in his right elbow after the game. The Mets said he was examined Tuesday at the Hospital for Special Surgery, had an MRI and was diagnosed with a partial tear of the right medial collateral ligament. The team said he received a plasma injection. The Mets already are without All-Star ace Matt Harvey, expected to miss the entire season following Tommy John surgery Oct. 22 for a partial tear of his right ulnar collateral ligament. Jose Valverde, a three-time All-Star, takes over as the closer. The 36-year-old right-hander has 286 saves in an 11-year big league career with Arizona, Houston and Detroit. "I feel bad for Bobby. What I want is for Bobby to be OK," Valverde said. "I want this guy to come back soon. I want him closing games for the Mets."

SAN ANTONIO -- About an hour after the season ended, Chris Bosh was standing near the bus ramp from where the Miami Heat would soon depart for the airport and the off-season. White Sharks Jerseys . Miamis two-year reign was over. And Bosh almost sounded relieved. The Heat got rolled in the NBA Finals by San Antonio, losing in five games, the last three of them lopsided, and for the first time since 2011 there would be no championship parade in Miami. The same team that the Heat wore down in the 2013 finals had all the answers, ushering in a summer for Miami that will be filled with questions about the futures of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Bosh. "I dont think anybody really enjoyed this season like in years past," Bosh told The Associated Press. "There was no, like, genuine joy all the time. It seemed like work. It was a job the whole year. Winning was just a relief. Losing was a cloud over us sometimes and then wed break out of it -- and then go right back. But we got here. We had a chance. They were just better." That being said, and while hardly committing to a fifth season of the "Big 3" era in Miami, Bosh made it clear: The group wants to remain intact. Whether or not personal choices and financial realities of a salary-capped, luxury-taxed world will allow that to happen remain unclear. "We want to stay together, man," Bosh said. "Ill say that. Its a great organization, great team and great city. And to have a chance, thats all you can ask for." James insisted he hasnt thought about what decisions he has to make this summer. Wade has often expressed interest in remaining with the Heat. Bosh has said repeatedly that he wants to stay. But all can become free agents in the next couple weeks, and the Heat might be rooting for that to happen. By opting out, they could get new deals with the Heat and create financial flexibility for team president Pat Riley to lure new pieces into a locker room that will need new faces. "The whole league continues to get better every single year," James said. "Obviously we would need to get better from every facet, every position. Its just how the league works." For as well as he played in Game 5 -- 31 points and 10 rebounds in what would be the final game of Miamis run as champion -- James best display of defence came afterward, when pressed repeatedly about his future. "I will deal with my summer when I get to that point," James said. "Me and my team will sit down and deal with it. I love Miami. My family loves it. But obviously right now thats not even what Im thinking about. You guys are trying to find answers. Im not going to give you one." The Heat arent expected to hold exit interviews until later this week. James and Wade shared the postgame podium Sunday, possibly for the last time. Wade seemed to be labouring in the last two games of the finals, shooting just 28 per cent from the floor and 50 per cent from the foul line. "It wasnt just Dwyane," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said when asked about Wades struggles. "It was pretty much everybody except for LeBron." Wades knees and health have been a concern all year, never more than in the finals. "Im all right," Wade said. "Cant win them all. You try to, but you cant win them all." The Heat have known for four years that this summer of decisions and possible changes was looming, and have planned accordingly. Besides the "Big 3," the locker room is filled with free-agents-in-waiting. Chris Andersen, who excelled for little money the last two seasons, will be getting a raise from someone. Mario Chalmers can leave, Ray Allen isnt sure if hell play in Miami or anywhere else, Shane Battier is retiring and Udonis Haslem -- who has been with the Heat for 11 seasons, just like Wade -- also has an uncertain future. "It wasnt a distraction," Haslem said. " We got here. And if someone had told me when I signed on the dotted line that Id go to four straight finals, Id take it." The Spurs dont see the Heat going anywhere. "Theyre a class act and theyll be back next year for sure," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "I dont think anybody would really doubt that." Bosh can only hope hes right. "I see why people were saying three-peating is hard. I get it now," Bosh said. "I get it. Theres just so many other things you have to fight. The human psyche, the human condition. Were all human. And it was a long, tough season." Tomas Hertl Jersey .

More importantly, he is trying to show his young teammates the Colorado are still post-season contenders. He hopes winning a series at home was a fresh start.Trouble in the Reds outfield, the Blue Jays rotation could have a new look, an interesting catcher option in Colorado and injuries to Davis, Kipnis, Cain and more. INJURIES - Reds RF Jay Bruce is facing knee surgery for a torn meniscus and it could cost him a month of playing time. Chris Heisey, who has shown some pop (43 home runs, .736 OPS in 1218 career plate appearances) takes over in right for the Reds. - The Reds are also missing LHP Tony Cingrani, who has shoulder tendinitis, but Cincinnati can get away with a four-man rotation for the time being. - A torn tendon in his right hand leaves RHP Brandon Morrow on the 60-day DL, giving J.A. Happ a chance to return to the rotation. Happ has been rocked in three relief appearances this year, so it may not be long before Marcus Stroman gets his turn. Stroman, a 2012 first-round pick, has been recalled from Triple-A Buffalo, where he was 2-2 with a 1.69 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 36 strikeouts in 26 2/3 innings. Stroman starts in the bullpen but figures to be next in line for a rotation opening. - With 1B Chris Davis on the DL due to a strained oblique, Steve Pearce is getting regular playing time for the Orioles. Pearce has done little (.222 AVG, .556 OPS) in 27 plate appearances this year, but since joining the Orioles in 2012, he has seven home runs, 29 RBI, a .253 average and .748 OPS in 248 plate appearances. - A strained hamstring has put White Sox CF Adam Eaton on the DL, giving Jordan Danks a shot at some regular playign time. In 300 career plate appearances, Danks is hitting .207 with a .606 OPS and a dozen stolen bases, so he hasnt clicked in the bigs yet, but had a respectable .772 OPS in four seasons (1566 plate appearances) at Triple-A. - Indians 2B Jason Kipnis is out with a strained oblique, and the Tribe has turned to 21-year-old Jose Ramirez. Ramirez doesnt have any power to speak of, but hit .308 with a .765 OPS and 75 stolen bases, in 1172 minor-league plate appearances. - Need a catcher? While Rockies C Wilin Rosario deals with a viral infection, consider Jordan Pacheco, who is the primary backup in Colorado. Pacheco had played primarily first and third base with the rockies, but, prior to this season, had seen action at catcher in 22 of 213 career games. This year, Pacheco has caught in 10 games, and is hitting .278 with a .769 OPS. He hasnt hit enough to have value as a corner infielder, but as a catcher? Thats a different story. - Tigers RHP Anibal Sanchez is on the DL due to a laceration on his finger, giving LHP Robbie Ray (3-2, 1.53 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, 21 K, 29 1/3 IP at Triple-A) a turn in the Detroit rotation. Ray was acquired from Washhington as part of the Doug Fister trade in the offseason. Sharks Jerseys For Sale. . - A run-in with a kitchen knife has sent Giants RHP Matt Cain to the DL, opening up a spot in the rotation for Yusmerio Petit, the 29-year-old who has a 3.31 ERA in 73 1/3 innings with the Giants since 2012. - Angels 3B David Freese suffered a broken finger on the weekend, leaving the hot corner in the hands of Ian Stewart, the one-time top prospect who has power (hit 25 HR in 2009), but is hitting .186 with seven home runs in 396 plate appearances since the start of 2011. - Twins RHP Mike Pelfrey is sidelined with a groin problem, giving Samuel Deduno a chance to return to the starting rotation. Dedunos strikeout rate has improved, working out of the bullpen this year, though hes also giving up more base-runners than he did last season, when he was 8-8 with a 3.83 ERA and 1.35 WHIP in 18 starts for the Twins.

NEW ORLEANS - The NBAs best and brightest head to the Big Easy on Sunday night to play in the 63rd All-Star Game at Smoothie King Center. Womens Lakers Jerseys . You can watch all the action on TSN with coverage beginning at 7pm et/4pm pt. LeBron James of the Miami Heat was the leading vote-getter as he starts his 10th All-Star Game. "Its great being here, man, and its nice to see all your fellow guys around the league, both East and West," said James. "Im honored to be here once again and excited to be part of this." He is joined in the Easts starting lineup by Heat teammate Dwyane Wade (10th appearance), Clevelands Kyrie Irving (2nd), Indianas Paul George (2nd) and New Yorks Carmelo Anthony (7th). The leading vote-getter out West was Oklahoma Citys Kevin Durant, who finished second to James in overall voting and will be in his fifth All-Star Game. Steph Curry of the Golden State Warriors is going to make his All-Star debut as he earned the most votes in the West backcourt. Kobe Bryant was voted into the other starting spot, despite playing just six games this season. His knee injury precluded him from participating and commissioner Adam Silver named New Orleans Pelicans Anthony Davis to replace him on the roster. Head coach Scott Brooks of OKC selected Bryants replacement in the starting lineup and that man will be Brooks former player, James Harden of the Houston Rockets. LA Clipper Blake Griffin (4th appearance) and Minnesotas Kevin Love (3rd) round out the starting five. Pacers skipper Frank Vogel will coach the Eastern Conference team. The reserves, as always, were selected by the conference coaches and offered little in terms of controversy. Much like the fan vote, coaches were tasked with selecting two backcourt players, three frontcourt players and two wild-cards. The visitors from the East will have newbies in Washingtons John Wall, Torontos DeMar DeRozan and Atlantas Paul Millsap. Miamis Chris Bosh will make his ninth appearance and fellow veterans Joe Johnson of the Brooklyn Nets (7th), Indianas Roy Hibbert (2nd) and Chicagos Joakim Noah (2nd) complete the second unit. The Western reserves are a more veteran-laden group with Dallas Dirk Nowitzki (12th), Clipper Chris Paul (7th), San Antonios Tony Parker (6th) and Dwight Howard (8th) of the Houston Rockets. Portland has two representatives in LaMarcus Aldridge (3rd) and Damian Lillard (1st). Davis will make his All-Star debut in just his second season. "I stayed in the gym last summer trying to get better, and Im doing the same thing this summer. And I have a lot to work on," said Davis. "And to be selected in the All-Star Game and the numbers that Im putting up is amazing, but I know that I have a lot to do." The West is on a three-game winning streak. Last year, Paul earned MVP honors with 20 points, 15 assists and four steals as the West prevailed, 143-138 in Houston. Durant became the first player in history to score 30-plus points in three straight All-Star games. One of the most intriguing aspects of this matchup, (other than both teams in sleeved uniforms), is with the new voting regulations, the East doesnt have a traditional big man in the starting lineup. James has a wide array of post moves and he may be forced to jump center. He, Anthony and George might have a hard time matching up with the much bigger frontline of Durant, Griffin and Love. "I guess it would probably help more, but Im okay with the way its done," coach Vogel said of fans no longer voting for a center. The West has taken four of the last five meetings and five of the last seven.

          Storm’s uncertain track sows fear; 10 million in crosshairs      Cache   Translate Page      

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. – Hurricane Florence put a corridor of more than 10 million people in the crosshairs Wednesday as the monster storm closed in on the Carolinas, uncertainty over its projected path spreading worry across a widening swath of the Southeast.

Faced with new forecasts that showed a more southerly threat, Georgia’s governor joined his counterparts in Virginia and North and South Carolina in declaring a state of emergency, and some residents who had thought they were safely out of range boarded up their homes.

The National Hurricane Center’s best guess was that Florence would blow ashore as early as Friday afternoon around the North Carolina-South Carolina line, then push its rainy way westward with a potential for catastrophic inland flooding.

Florence’s winds in the afternoon were down to 120 mph from a high of 140 mph, and the Category 4 storm fell to a Category 3, with a further slow weakening expected as the storm nears the coast. But authorities warned it will still be an extremely dangerous hurricane.

“Do you want to get hit with a train or do you want to get hit with a cement truck?” said Jeff Byard, an administrator with the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

Tropical storm-force winds extended 195 miles from Florence’s center, and hurricane-force winds reached out 70 miles.

The National Weather Service said 5.25 million people live in areas under hurricane warnings or watches, and 4.9 million live in places covered by tropical storm warnings or watches.

At the White House, President Donald Trump both touted the government’s readiness and urged people to get out of the way of Florence.

“Don’t play games with it. It’s a big one,” he said.

As of 5 p.m., the storm was centered 385 miles southeast of Wilmington, North Carolina, moving northwest at 16 mph. The hurricane center said Florence will approach the coast Friday and linger for a while before rolling ashore.

As of Tuesday, more than 1.7 million people in the Carolinas and Virginia were warned to clear out. Airlines had canceled nearly 1,000 flights and counting. Home Depot and Lowe’s activated emergency response centers to get generators, trash bags and bottled water to stores before and after the storm. The two hardware chains said they sent in a total of around 1,100 trucks.

Duke Energy, the nation’s No. 2 power company, said Florence could knock out electricity to three-quarters of its 4 million customers in the Carolinas, and outages could last for weeks. Workers are being brought in from the Midwest and Florida to help in the storm’s aftermath, it said.

Boarding up his home in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, Chris Pennington watched the forecasts and tried to decide when to leave.

“In 12 or 18 hours, they may be saying different things all over again,” he said.

Computer models of exactly what the storm might do varied, adding to the uncertainty. In contrast to the hurricane center’s official projection, a highly regarded European model had the storm turning southward off the North Carolina coast and coming ashore near the Georgia-South Carolina line.

Reacting to the possibility of a more southerly track, Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal declared an emergency but did not immediately order any evacuations.

“I ask all Georgians to join me in praying for the safety of our people and all those in the path of Hurricane Florence,” Deal said.

The shift in the projected track spread concern to areas that once thought they were relatively safe. In South Carolina, close to the Georgia line, Beaufort County emergency chief Neil Baxley told residents they need to prepare again for the worst just in case.

“We’ve had our lessons. Now it might be time for the exam,” he said.

In Virginia, where about 245,000 residents were ordered to evacuate low-lying areas, officials urged people to remain away from home despite forecast changes showing Florence’s path largely missing the state.

Their entire neighborhood evacuated in Wilmington, North Carolina, David and Janelle Garrigus planned to ride out Florence at their daughter’s one-bedroom apartment in Charlotte. Unsure of what they might find when they return home, the couple went shopping for a recreational vehicle.

“We’re just trying to plan for the future here, not having a house for an extended period of time,” David Garrigus said.

Melody Rawson evacuated her first-floor apartment in Myrtle Beach and arrived at Atlanta Motor Speedway in Hampton, Georgia, to camp for free with three other adults, her disabled son, two dogs and a pet bird.

“We hope to have something left when we get home,” she said.

Forecasters worried the storm’s damage will be all the worse if it lingers on the coast. The trend is “exceptionally bad news,” said University of Miami hurricane researcher Brian McNoldy, since it “smears a landfall out over hundreds of miles of coastline, most notably the storm surge.”

With South Carolina’s beach towns more in the bull’s-eye because of the shifting forecast, Ohio vacationers Chris and Nicole Roland put off their departure from North Myrtle Beach to get the maximum amount of time on the sand. Most other beachgoers were long gone.

“It’s been really nice,” Nicole Roland said. “Also, a little creepy. You feel like you should have already left.”

          Caged for the Storm as Hurricane Florence Bears Down      Cache   Translate Page      

Despite South Carolina issuing an evacuation order for all coastal counties ahead of category-3 hurricane Florence, the state corrections department decided Monday that it would not transfer 934 prisoners and as many as 119 staff in one prison.

Evacuated prisoners in sit on a sunken highway during Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans, Louisiana, August 31, 2005. 

© 2005 Reuters

Although Governor Henry McMaster lifted the evacuation order for three counties, including Jasper where the facility Ridgeland is located, these counties are still deemed evacuation zones by South Carolina Emergency Management Division.

Past history suggests this might prove disastrous. In Miami-Dade County, Florida, officials left nearly 4,500 prisoners inside facilities during Hurricane Irma in 2017, even though multiple prison facilities in that county were demolished by Hurricane Andrew in 1992. Prisoners who outlasted Hurricane Irma described cells covered in mold, urine, and feces, and prison guards spoke out about the horrors of conditions. When Hurricane Harvey hit Texas last year, prisoners experienced flooding and lacked enough drinking water and medicines.

After Hurricane Katrina in 2005, Human Rights Watch documented the nightmare nearly 600 prisoners endured in the Orleans Parish Prison compound. They told us officers chose to save themselves, while many prisoners were not evacuated for four days. Letters from prisoners detail how they were “left to die” with no food, water (except from toilets), lights or medical attention, amid chest-high contaminated water and broken gas lines. Evacuated prisoners transferred to Jena Correctional Facility were beaten and abused by officers, with some forced to lie in their own vomit.

Prisoners across 17 states, including South Carolina, concluded a two-week strike from August 21 to September 9, 2018 to pressure the country’s penal system for reform to produce “conditions of prisons and prison policies that recognize the humanity of imprisoned men and women.” Overcrowded facilities, unsafe and unsanitary environments, substandard nutrition and substandard medical care already pose a grave risk to prisoner health and safety. A hurricane will only exacerbate those risks.

State and local authorities should either evacuate prisoners from facilities in the path of the storm or explain publicly and convincingly why they are certain is safe not to. They should also know that they will be held accountable if they gamble with the safety of prisoners only to repeat the mistakes and abuses of the past.

"Újabb kötettel jelentkezett a kispróza és az irodalmi szociográfia nagymestereként számon tartott, évtizedekig Puerto Ricóban élő Ferdinándy György. Az amerikai menekült egy francia író, egy amerikai pilóta és egy műbútorasztalos az óhazából induló és oda visszakanyarodó kalandos élettörténetét meséli el.
Az emigránsok életét eddig nem dolgozták fel sem irodalmi, sem tudományos igénnyel. Ezt az űrt igyekszik betölteni Ferdinándy György, aki a résztvevő hitelességével számol be az óhazától elszakadtak történetéről. Magáról azt vallja, hogy „ csupán” novellista, de éppen ez jelenti támadhatatlanságát, hiszen a magyar novella műfaját a tömörség és a drámaiság mellett a dokumentarizmus jellemzi. Ráadásul Ferdinándy Györgynél a szociografikus pontosság könnyed, latinos történetvezetéssel párosul. Szomorú, hogy műveinek jó részét csak spanyol és francia fordításból ismerhetjük. Beszédes adat, hogy hamarabb került be a neve a francia irodalmi lexikonba, mint a magyarba. Ezért is jelentős az új kötet, hiszen az Amerikai menekült ezúttal elsőként magyarul jelent meg.
Ferdinándy György útja Magyarországról Ausztrián keresztül Strasbourgba vezetett, ott szerzett doktorátust dél-amerikai irodalomból. Évtizedekig Puerto Ricóban tanított, az utóbbi éveket Miamiban és XII. kerületi otthonában töltötte. Az Egyesült Államokban közeli kapcsolatba került a kubai irodalommal, ennek köszönhető a Miamiban élő, a könyvbemutatón is megjelenő Heriberto Hernández költő budapesti látogatása. Az ő kiadója, a Blue Bird próbálja elterjeszteni Amerikában és a világban a kubai, illetve a dél-amerikai irodalmat.
Ferdinándy György éppen akkortájt, a hatvanas években érkezett Puerto Ricóba, amikor Márquez elindította a dél-amerikai szerzők sikerét a világirodalomban. Az egyetemen harminchét évig tanított nyugati civilizációt, s előadásaiban az egyiptomi kultúra mellett a magyar íróknak is helyet adott. "

          Comment on Make Those October Vacation Plans Early Folks, Dodger’s Postseason Hopes Dwindle in Latest Loss by Michael N. Norris      Cache   Translate Page      
Blue.....a lot of us said the same thing when every other team in their division, even the Padres added a major talent. The Dodgers big addition, Tom Koehler and boy hasn't that worked out well. Of course they traded for Kemp, but that was a salary dump and he was not even supposed to be here. I still think they made a HUGE mistake not re-signing Morrow. He was a huge part of the success of last season. Most of the players they let walk were not really that big of a deal. I might have kept Andre as a leader and bench guy, but giving Forsythe a deal, and signing Utley for 2 years, well that was redundant, and in Forsythe's case, a really bad call. Chase up until he was injured was their best pinch hitter. Now with Kershaw having the ability to walk, and they no doubt will whiff on re-signing Machado, there will be some major changes this winter. No way they can stand pat again. And how long before father time finally catches up with Hill. They will have a lot of kids on the roster next year. Hopefully Grandal will be somewhere far away, like Miami.
          What do Church abuse policies mean by 'vulnerable adult'?      Cache   Translate Page      

Denver, Colo., Sep 12, 2018 / 01:00 pm (CNA).- A Vatican summit on abuse prevention next February will gather the presidents of bishops’ conferences from around the world. While a Sept. 12 statement from the Vatican said the gathering’s theme would be the “protection of minors,” a Vatican spokesperson clarified that the meeting would discuss “prevention of abuse of minors and vulnerable adults.”

Wednesday’s announcement of the meeting has raised questions about who the Church considers to be a “vulnerable adult.”

The USCCB’s “Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People,” does not use the term “vulnerable adult.”

Nor do the “Essential Norms for Diocesan/Eparchial Policies Dealing with Allegations of Sexual Abuse of Minors by Priests or Deacons,” which are binding Church policies for addressing sex abuse allegations in the United States.

Several dioceses, do, however, define the term in their own sexual abuse policies.

Policies of the Archdiocese of St. Paul-Minneapolis say that: “‘Vulnerable Adult’ means persons with physical, mental or emotional conditions that render them unable to defend or protect themselves, or get help when at risk of harm.”

In the Archdiocese of Louisville, “an adult 18 years or older is considered vulnerable when, because of impairment of mental or physical functions, that person is unable or unlikely to report abuse or neglect without assistance.”

The Archdiocese of Miami defines a “vulnerable person” as “a minor under 18 years of age or a person whose ability to perform normal activities of daily living is impaired due to a mental, emotional, long-term physical or developmental disability or dysfunction, or brain damage, or the infirmities of aging.”

The Archdiocese of Washington’s policies for child protection say that “a vulnerable individual over the age of seventeen (17) is also covered by this policy…when such a person is unable or unlikely to report abuse without assistance because of impairment of physical or mental function or emotional status.”

Edward Mechmann, director of the Safe Environment Program in the Archdiocese of New York, told CNA that the archdiocese considers a vulnerable person to be “a person of any age who lacks the capacity to give consent due to a mental or developmental condition or disability.”

The Code of Canon Law does not use or define the term “vulnerable adult.” However, the Church’s 2010 “Norms on delicta graviora” say that “a person who habitually lacks the use of reason is to be considered equivalent to a minor” with regard to allegations of clerical sexual abuse.  

The February summit was announced in the wake of clerical sexual misconduct allegations across the Church involving minors, as well as allegations of misconduct that targeted seminarians, priests, and other adults.

On Aug. 14, a Pennsylvania grand jury released a report documenting 70 years of sexual abuse allegations in six dioceses in that state. On Sept. 12, a report from the German bishops’ conference documented allegations of clerical sexual abuse during a similar time period.

On June 20, the Archdiocese of New York announced that it had deemed credible an allegation that Archbishop Theodore McCarrick had serially sexually abused a teenage boy in the 1970s. Subsequent reports, however, allege that McCarrick had serially sexually coerced and assaulted seminarians and young priests during decades of his episcopal ministry in New Jersey and Washington, D.C.

Mechmann told CNA that the term “vulnerable adult” as his archdiocese defines it, “would not include seminarians. It is really aimed at protecting people who have developmental disabilities or cognitive disabilities, for instance someone who is suffering from Alzheimer's disease.”

“A sound diocesan policy, however, would also encompass any kind of non-consensual sexual conduct, even if it is not strictly covered by the Charter,” Mechmann added.

The Archdiocese of New York’s “Policy on Sexual Misconduct” includes in its definition of sexual misconduct “any sexual act with another person without consent,” as well as “any sexual conduct that is a violation of civil law.”
 
Deacon Bernie Nojadera, executive director of the USCCB’s office for child and youth protection, told CNA that several U.S. dioceses use the definition of “vulnerable adult” provided by civil law.

That definition often refers to a “dependent adult,” he said.

Nojadera noted that “there is nothing in [the Charter] that talks about differential of power. So if you’re looking at differential of power, that’s not addressed in the Charter.”

“That’s where applicability of state law comes in, with regard to the differential of power. A lot of dioceses are looking at their state laws and trying to apply them accordingly,” he said.

With regard to allegations of abuse involving seminarians and other adults, he said he thinks “it would be wise for those types of situations to also be brought forward” at the February meeting of bishops.

“I would hope that there would be a seat at the table for seminarians and for that issue to be addressed,” he told CNA.

In addition to the abuse of minors, vulnerable adults, seminarians, and other adults, Nojadera noted other situations that could, in his view, be addressed, mentioning the difficulties faced by the children of priests, the use of corporal punishment in the Church, and situations involving religious orders.

He also mentioned the importance of consulting with victims of clerical sexual abuse.

“I would hope that survivor victims were invited to this table as well, to be able to address [the meeting],” he said.

Nojadera said that his office often looks for insights from victims of clerical sexual abuse, calling their perspective “invaluable.”

“There’s an awareness that those who have not been abused do not have.”

He also encouraged broader lay involvement in discussions about sexual misconduct in the Church. “The lay faithful have been offering to help and contribute to the solution to this,” he said.

Nojadera said he hopes the February summit will take an expansive view of abuse-related problems in the Church.

“I think we have an opportunity here to just talk about abuse in general. Period.”

“Hopefully,” he said, “they’ll have an opportunity to see the big picture.”

"Me and my granddad would always go, he would take me to the games," Mahone said in the interview.

He also said that the first time he sang the national anthem at Game 1 of the 2014 Finals between the Spurs and Miami Heat.

Robert F. Excellent point , the only people who love "work" are many of my friends who have never "worked". I find it funny when an Ivanka Trump, Megan Kelley or any well known well paid person who lives in a bubble considers her or him self a "working" Mom or Dad, baby sitter/24/7 Nanny, driven around or massive support compared to 90 percent who actually work at jobs not positions. This is not class envy it is just reality. I appreciate your honesty. Do not have an answer except that work is good and hopefully people do move up the ladder. I abhor the wage gap in the USA today that needs to be closed and quickly. As usual low brow John Barry only knows "It 's a Five O Clock World" by the Vogues, I think or Well Respected Man by the Kinks , check them out , they are from working class British 1960 groups and no body more officially class conscious than the British. There is dignity in good honest work and I think that in USA we take the working class for granted as they are the backbone, the fuel of our economy for sure. i know that coming from my lower working class social , economic background gives me such a different perspective than many of my peers. They will never get it any more than I would ever get a legacy scholarship to Yale or even Miami Dade Junior College.

It is hard to feel thankful that we are not getting gob-smacked by a major hurricane. Our good fortune is our neighboring state's misfortune. 

In the spirit of prior hurricanes, misses and hits, we revise our much desired Rumpole's Hurricane list and Q & A. 

Q: What do the categories mean?
A: The category numbers refer to the "Saffir-Simpson Scale" (literally "the Saffir- Simpson Scale"). The scale relates the square of the amount of liquor in metric ounces needed to forget the impending disaster.  Since there is an exponential difference between the damage a cat2 and cat3 storm causes, you need four metric ounces of liquor to forget the impending damage of a cat2 storm, but nine ounces to forget a cat3 storm. 

SURVIVAL LIST
* denotes a new addition to the list. 
Four Bottles Tito Vodka.
*Four jars olives.
Three Apples. 
Two Oranges.
Bunch of Bananas. 
*Four Bottles Hayden-Basil Bourbon.
Two Bottles Bullet Bourbon.
One case Coca-Cola.
One box power bars.
Two flashlights.
One Radio.
One case C batteries.
One case water, 16Oz bottles. One case per person per two days of anticipated delay before rescue. If you listen to the local channel 7 type TV station, then add 30 cases water per person per day. 
*One Book: Crime and Punishment.
*One bottle sleeping pills, or one book "The collected humorous speeches of William Howard Taft." 

Q: Should I use a generator?
A: Only run the generator during the storm. After the storm, surreptitiously run a power cord from your neighbor's generator. 

Q: How dangerous is a hurricane?
A: According to most meteorologists who work for Channel 7 or who have worked for the station  over the past decade in Miami, most hurricanes threaten 90-95% of all life within a five hundred mile radius of a storm. Your chances of surviving a storm rise -according to Channel 7- in direct proportion to the amount of plywood you buy from Home Depot multiplied by the number of hours you wait in line. So for example if you buy ten sheets of plywood after waiting two hours, your chances of survival rise twenty percent. 

Q: Will courts be closed? 
A: In Miami and the rest of Florida -yes. In Broward County-NO. And in the words of one prior chief judge "warrants for missing court during hurricanes will be the priority in being enforced once the storm passes."

So there you have it. Everything you always wanted to know about a hurricane.

          Florida's tourism numbers in 2018 on pace to set new annual record      Cache   Translate Page      
Florida tourism is on pace to set an annual record, with an estimated 65.5 million people traveling to the state during the first half of the year, according to numbers released Wednesday.

The tourism-marketing agency Visit Florida estimated that tourism during the first six months of 2018 was up 5.9 percent from the same period in 2017.

Gov. Rick Scott said the pace should allow the state to easily surpass a record 118.5 million tourists estimated for 2017.

“If we have that sort of growth the rest of the year, we’re going to have 125 million tourists,” Scott said. “Every 65 to 75 tourists is another Florida job.”

The leisure and hospitality industry accounted for 1.26 million jobs in the state in July, up 50,400 from a year ago, according to numbers posted by the Department of Economic Opportunity.

Scott announced the new tourism figures during a brief telephone call Wednesday to the Enterprise Florida Board of Directors, which was meeting in Miami.…

Burke accompanied the British army into Afghanistan in 1878 and worked steadily in the hostile environment of Afghanistan and the North West Frontier Province, recording military and topographical scenes as well as the peoples of the country during the Second Afghan War (1878-80). Burke also photographed many darbars or meetings that took place between British combat leaders and Afghan chiefs which led to the uneasy peace treaties characteristic of the campaign. His two-year Afghan expedition produced a visual document which resulted in his achieving significance as the photographer of the region of the Great Game (concerning Anglo-Russian territorial rivalry). In the winter of 1879, through to the summer of 1880, the British force called the Kabul Field Force occupied Kabul. Its commander General Roberts was tasked with securing Kabul and maintaining lines of communication via the Khyber Pass with the rest of the British forces, meanwhile negotiations to bring an end to the war and place a new Amir on the throne of Kabul were going on. Burke spent many months in Kabul and took a series of images of its diverse residents.

Programs are performed at LAB's home theaters: UCLA's Royce Hall, Glendale's Alex Theatre, Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center, and the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, and this year also include performances at Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts.

"This season truly embodies our mission to preserve the best choreographic work of the past and become the impetus for the best choreography yet to come," said Christensen and Neary. "Our repertoire celebrates the masters, while showcasing contemporary choreographers that are creating their own legacies."

Modern Moves will open the season (October 2018) and will feature Balanchine's Western Symphony, Les Chambres des Jacques, a LAB premiere from Aszure Barton, and Lickety-Split, a LAB premiere from Alejandro Cerrudo. The production brings three choreographic interpretations from master choreographers of the 20th and 21st centuries. The evening highlights Americana, folk music and the Old West.


LAB's popular The Nutcracker (November and December 2018), set in 1912 Los Angeles, returns for the holidays. After last season's sold-out performances, the holiday engagement kicks off with performances at Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts, a new venue for LAB, over Thanksgiving weekend. The performances at Dolby Theatre will again feature a live orchestra led by internationally renowned conductor Andrea Quinn. LAB partners with the American Federation of Musicians (Local 47, the Musicians Union of Hollywood) to bring Tchaikovsky's luminous, beloved score to life.

To close the season, Los Angeles Ballet presents Serenade and La Sylphide (March 2019), a passionate program that offers masterpieces choregraphed by George Balanchine and August Bournonville. Balanchine's Serenade is stirring, sweeping and romantic and one his best-loved works, and Bournonville's La Sylphide is a captivating story of love and loss.

Entering its thirteenth season, Los Angeles Ballet continues to present world-class performances and provide diverse outreach opportunities throughout Southern California. At a time when the arts are underfunded and continue to be absent from public school curricula, it is Los Angeles Ballet's mission to share the gift of dance with the broadest possible audience and give back to the community that has so generously supported it. Los Angeles Ballet opens its doors with free classes for all ages with A Chance to Dance and provides thousands of free tickets with Power of Performance (POP!), to special needs children and adults, military families, veterans and seniors through collaboration with 49 community partners. To date, LAB has provided 166,000 free tickets to POP! participants.


About Los Angeles Ballet - Founded in 2004 by Artistic Directors Thordal Christensen and Colleen Neary, and Executive Director Julie Whittaker, Los Angeles Ballet is known for its superb stagings of the Balanchine repertory, stylistically meticulous classical ballets, and its commitment to new works. LAB has become recognized as a world-class ballet company in twelve seasons, presenting 38 productions encompassing 69 works, including 18 commissioned world premieres. Los Angeles Ballet 'tours' throughout LA County, regularly appearing at four venues. Since its inception in 2006, LAB's Power of Performance (POP!) program has provided thousands of free tickets to underserved or disadvantaged children, seniors, veterans, and their families. LAB's A Chance to Dance Community Days outreach program was launched in October 2012.

About Thordal Christensen - Among Thordal Christensen's many credentials are an impressive performing career, successful leadership of one of the world's major ballet companies, critically applauded original choreography, and a proven commitment to dance education. Born in Copenhagen, Denmark, Christensen received his ballet training at The Royal Danish Ballet School and at the School of American Ballet in New York City before a performance career that included the Royal Danish Ballet, New York City Ballet, and Pacific Northwest Ballet. Christensen then returned to Denmark where he was Artistic Director of the Royal Danish Ballet. This blend of Bournonville and Balanchine tradition is one of the defining themes of his career, and has shaped the unique artistic vision that Christensen, along with his wife Colleen Neary, bring to Los Angeles Ballet. In 2002, he was made Knight of the Dannebrog by Queen Margrethe II of Denmark.

About Colleen Neary - Colleen Neary brings to Los Angeles Ballet the benefits of her vast experience as one of George Balanchine's quintessential ballerinas. In her experience as a dancer, teacher, and ballet mistress, she also worked closely with other luminaries of 20th century dance, including Rudolf Nureyev, Maurice Béjart, and Ji?í Kylián. Born in Miami, Florida and trained at The School of American Ballet, Neary danced in New York City Ballet under the direction of George Balanchine, then for Maurice Béjart's Ballet du XXième Siecle, and Pacific Northwest Ballet. Neary was personally selected by Balanchine to teach his choreography to major companies all over the world as a répétiteur for The George Balanchine Trust.

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

          Comment on Econbrowser, on the Day Lehman Brothers Closed by baffling      Cache   Translate Page      
poorly vetted mortgages were a problem. mortgage companies worked in unison with bankers to commit fraud in the mortgage application paperwork, something honest peak trader seems unwilling to acknowledge. the element of fraud in the real estate market had the outsized affect of driving up, significantly, the price of real estate-into a bubble. blaming on underprivileged mortgage holders is simply a scapegoat. one of the biggest sources of the mortgage crisis were the condos in miami leading up to the real estate crash. these sales were not the result of banks being forced to deal with minorities, peak. when these properties crashed, and the speculators walked away from their loans, it created big problems. but then the financial types added their own gasoline to the fire, in the form of all the derivative products created to fund and insure the mortgage products. these were the result of the financial types-not congress peak-and these products were what ultimately led to the financial crisis we had to deal with. why were these products in existence? to allow the bankers to do god's work? these products were created by bankers purely as a moneymaking scheme, adding outsized risk to the system which ultimately came true. the only people still in denial about the irresponsibility of the bankers in creating the financial crisis are a few remaining bankers who are unwilling to accept responsibility for their immoral behavior in the crisis.

AUTHOR. (Photo:Photograph of Afghan policemen sporting long-barelled rifles, taken in Kabul, Afghanistan, by John Burke, 1879-80\. Burke accompanied the British army into Afghanistan in 1878 and worked steadily in the hostile environment of Afghanistan and the North West Frontier Province, recording military and topographical scenes as well as the peoples of the country during the Second Afghan War (1878-80). Burke also photographed many darbars or meetings that took place between British combat leaders and Afghan chiefs which led to the uneasy peace treaties characteristic of the campaign. His two-year Afghan expedition produced a visual document which resulted in his achieving significance as the photographer of the region of the Great Game (concerning Anglo-Russian territorial rivalry). In the winter of 1879, through to the summer of 1880, the British force called the Kabul Field Force occupied Kabul. Its commander General Roberts was tasked with securing Kabul and maintaining lines of communication via the Khyber Pass with the rest of the British forces, meanwhile negotiations to bring an end to the war and place a new Amir on the throne of Kabul were going on. Burke spent many months in Kabul and took a series of images of its diverse residents.

          Nesta: “Nazionale? Questa generazione meno forte della nostra. Sul’esperienza a Perugia e la Lazio…”      Cache   Translate Page      
Nesta training Perugia sito ufficiale

Alessandro Nesta, attuale tecnico del Perugia ed ex difensore del Milan e della Nazionale, ha parlato ai microfoni di Radio Radio della sua esperienza sulla panchina degli umbri e non solo. A seguire l'intervista integrale:

Perugia: "La mia avventura qui è iniziata bene. Perugia è una piazza importante, il posto perfetto per continuare la mia carriera da allenatore".

Sulla Lazio: "Può provare ad andare in Champions, l'anno scorso l'ha dimostrato. Ha cambiato poco, è una squadra forte e in ogni partita se la gioca con tutti. Ha iniziato così e così a causa del calendario non facilissimo, però Inzaghi è un grande allenatore e l'ha dimostrato. Acerbi-de Vrij? Come caratteristiche sono simili, chi sarà più efficace lo dirà il campionato, vedremo. Allenare la Lazio? Vorrebbe dire che ho fatto bene a Perugia e fatto un percorso importante. La Lazio sarebbe un punto di arrivo non solo per me perché ne sono stato il capitano, ma per tutti perché è una grande squadra".

Sull'addio ai biancocelesti da calciatore: "L'ho detto tante volte. Andarsene è stato difficile per i tifosi ma anche per me. I primi mesi sono stati complicati, poi ho fatto il professionista. Se potevo tornare? Per due giorni c'è stata questa possibilità, poi alla fine non si è fatto nulla. Il Milan ha voluto che rimanessi, la Lazio non aveva così tanta voglia di riprendermi, e quindi sono rimasto".

Sul derby perso 5-1: "Me lo ricordo bene. Fu un anno difficile per noi, alla Lazio si iniziava a parlare di vendere i grandi giocatori. La società voleva vendermi e io non volevo andarmene. Ho passato dei mesi complicati, c'era aria di divorzio. Sono andato in campo e non ci ho capito nulla. La mia reazione è stata sbagliata, il fatto che mi volessero vendere mi ha fatto pensare di mandare tutto a quel paese, e quindi sono uscito. Se tornassi indietro non lo farei. Avrei dovuto affrontarla in un altro modo ma ho fatto una cavolata".

Sulle precedenti esperienze in panchina: "Inzaghi e Gattuso hanno già allenato in grandi squadre ma non ho nessun rimpianto. A Miami sono stato benissimo, la mia famiglia si è inserita bene in America e questo non ha prezzo. Sono tornato in Italia con grandi intenzioni, e spero di far bene. Preferisco aver fatto il mio percorso, un percorso più lento".

Sui problemi della Nazionale: "Paghiamo un po' il fatto di avere una generazione di giocatori un po' meno forte della nostra. Noi ci siamo ritrovati una Nazionale forte, tutti lo eravamo. Non è facile sostituire giocatori così. Speriamo che l'Italia possa tirare fuori nuovi talenti nei prossimi anni. Bisogna investire di più nei settori giovanili e sugli allenatori. Bisogna scegliere il top degli allenatori per i nostri ragazzi".

Sulla maglia numero 13: "Sono contento che tanti ragazzi scelgano questo numero per me. Vuol dire che ho fatto qualcosa di importante. Sono orgoglioso di questo, per l'equilibrio che ho avuto nei momenti belli e in quelli brutti. Faccio il tifo per Romagnoli. L'ho conosciuto, è un bravissimo ragazzo, laziale e gioca nel Milan. È bravissimo, gli serve un po' di esperienza internazionale e poi crescerà".

The teams will play just one game Wednesday night, and then a single-admission doubleheader Thursday starting at 3:10 p.m. They were supposed to play two games Wednesday to make up Monday's rainout, but the weather was once again uncooperative.

          Storm's uncertain track sows fear; 10 million in crosshairs      Cache   Translate Page      
MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. – Hurricane Florence put a corridor of more than 10 million people in the crosshairs Wednesday as the monster storm closed in on the Carolinas, uncertainty over its projected path spreading worry across a widening swath of the Southeast.

Faced with new forecasts that showed a more southerly threat, Georgia’s governor joined his counterparts in Virginia and North and South Carolina in declaring a state of emergency, and some residents who had thought they were safely out of range boarded up their homes.

The National Hurricane Center’s best guess was that Florence would blow ashore as early as Friday afternoon around the North Carolina-South Carolina line, then push its rainy way westward with a potential for catastrophic inland flooding.

Florence’s nighttime winds were down to 110 mph from a high of 140 mph, and the Category 3 storm fell to a Category 2, with a further slow weakening expected as the storm nears the coast. But authorities warned it still will be an extremely dangerous hurricane.

“Do you want to get hit with a train or do you want to get hit with a cement truck?” said Jeff Byard, an administrator with the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

Tropical storm-force winds extended 195 miles from Florence’s center, and hurricane-force winds reached out 70 miles.

The National Weather Service said 5.25 million people live in areas under hurricane warnings or watches, and 4.9 million live in places covered by tropical storm warnings or watches.

At the White House, President Donald Trump both touted the government’s readiness and urged people to get out of the way of Florence.

“Don’t play games with it. It’s a big one,” he said.

As of 8 p.m., the storm was centered 335 miles southeast of Wilmington, North Carolina, moving northwest at 16 mph. The hurricane center said Florence will approach the coast Friday and linger for a while before rolling ashore.

As of Tuesday, more than 1.7 million people in the Carolinas and Virginia were warned to clear out. Airlines had canceled about 1,000 flights and counting. Home Depot and Lowe’s activated emergency response centers to get generators, trash bags and bottled water to stores before and after the storm. The two hardware chains said they sent in a total of about 1,100 trucks.

Duke Energy, the nation’s No. 2 power company, said Florence could knock out electricity to three-quarters of its 4 million customers in the Carolinas, and outages could last for weeks. Workers are being brought in from the Midwest and Florida to help in the storm’s aftermath, it said.

Boarding up his home in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, Chris Pennington watched the forecasts and tried to decide when to leave.

“In 12 or 18 hours, they may be saying different things all over again,” he said.

Computer models of exactly what the storm might do varied, adding to the uncertainty. In contrast to the hurricane center’s official projection, a highly regarded European model had the storm turning southward off the North Carolina coast and coming ashore near the Georgia-South Carolina line.

Reacting to the possibility of a more southerly track, Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal declared an emergency but did not immediately order any evacuations.

“I ask all Georgians to join me in praying for the safety of our people and all those in the path of Hurricane Florence,” Deal said.

The shift in the projected track spread concern to areas that once thought they were relatively safe. In South Carolina, close to the Georgia line, Beaufort County emergency chief Neil Baxley told residents they need to prepare again for the worst just in case.

“We’ve had our lessons. Now it might be time for the exam,” he said.

In Virginia, where about 245,000 residents were ordered to evacuate low-lying areas, officials urged people to remain away from home despite forecast changes showing Florence’s path largely missing the state.

Their entire neighborhood evacuated in Wilmington, North Carolina, David and Janelle Garrigus planned to ride out Florence at their daughter’s one-bedroom apartment in Charlotte.

Unsure of what they might find when they return home, the couple went shopping for a recreational vehicle.

“We’re just trying to plan for the future here, not having a house for an extended period of time,” David Garrigus said.

Melody Rawson evacuated her first-floor apartment in Myrtle Beach and arrived at Atlanta Motor Speedway in Hampton, Georgia, to camp for free with three other adults, her disabled son, two dogs and a pet bird.

“We hope to have something left when we get home,” she said.

Forecasters worried the storm’s damage will be all the worse if it lingers on the coast. The trend is “exceptionally bad news,” said University of Miami hurricane researcher Brian McNoldy, since it “smears a landfall out over hundreds of miles of coastline, most notably the storm surge.”

With South Carolina’s beach towns more in the bull’s-eye because of the shifting forecast, Ohio vacationers Chris and Nicole Roland put off their departure from North Myrtle Beach to get the maximum amount of time on the sand. Most other beachgoers were long gone.

“It’s been really nice,” Nicole Roland said. “Also, a little creepy. You feel like you should have already left.”

We are always lurking on the streets of Miami, searching for their next commuter. This time we pulled up on the spot and found this 18 year old with giant tits and a perfectly round ass. After we followed her on the bus for a couple of blocks and offered her that clout. She eventually jumped on. This chick thought we were hiring her for some sort of stripping job. In reality we just wanted to rip and dip. After she was convinced of getting nude, getting her to shove a cock in her mouth was easy. These Chick would do anything for that dough. Once her pussy got properly stretched ll over the bus, and she took a load to the face. We dropped her ass out in the everglades. Good luck finding your way back!

          Chúng ta đang sống thế giới nào?      Cache   Translate Page      
Sắc đẹp, phải chăng, là do cặp mắt của người nhìn, như có người từng nói!

Còn quan điểm của mỗi người về thế giới mình đang sống là từ đâu ra, tạo hóa/bản chất hay giáo hóa/dưỡng dục (nature or nurture)? Và nó được định hình bởi yếu tố nào: kinh nghiệm sống, kiến thức, niềm tin (tôn giáo hay nhân bản) v.v…?


Hình minh họa.

Đó là câu hỏi không dễ trả lời. Và không rõ có thể có trả lời nào thỏa đáng không!

Một ly nước nửa đầy hay một ly nước nửa vơi? Tùy theo cái nhìn lạc/bi quan, tích/tiêu cực cũng như não trạng của mỗi người. Trong cùng một người mà có khi mỗi vấn đề và mỗi thời điểm cũng có thể khác nhau.

Người lạc quan, như cựu tổng thống Hoa Kỳ Barack Obama, vào năm 2016 cho rằng nếu có cơ hội được chọn thời điểm sinh ra làm người, ông sẽ chọn thời điểm này. Không phải 50 năm trước, không phải 50 năm nữa, mà ngay thời điểm này. Tuy ghi nhận có lắm thử thách lớn lao của thời đại, ông khẳng định chưa có thời đại nào trong lịch sử nhân loại được hòa bình, thịnh vượng và tiến bộ nhất như bây giờ [1].

Trái ngược với Obama, ứng viên Cộng Hòa Donald Trump cũng ngay vào lúc đó chỉ nhìn thấy một Hoa Kỳ hoàn toàn thua và thiệt, vì các vấn đề về di dân, thương mại, thuế, đạo Hồi, ngoại giao v.v… Trump đổ lỗi cho những chính sách thất bại của chính quyền Obama và trước đây, làm cho nước Mỹ trở nên bi đát như vậy, do đó khẩu hiệu “Làm cho Hoa Kỳ vĩ đại trở lại” nghe lọt lỗ tai không ít người.

Chủ đề của tạp chí Foreign Affairs số tháng 7/8 vừa qua có trình bày sáu bài, với bao quan điểm khác nhau, khi nhìn về thế giới chúng ta đang sống [2]. Thế giới hiện thực, cấp tiến, bộ lạc, Mác xít, kỹ thuật và hâm nóng nhìn vấn đề gần khác nhau hoàn toàn đưa đến cách kết luận vấn đề cũng hoàn toàn khác nhau.

Thế giới hiện thực (realist world)

Thế giới hiện thực nhìn nhận quyền lực và nhà nước quyết định tất cả.

Giáo sư lịch sử và bang giao quốc tế Stephen Kotkin cho rằng mỗi bá chủ thiên hạ (hegemon) cứ cho mình là cuối cùng, không còn ai khác nữa; nhưng thực tế thì mọi quốc gia đều trổi lên, chìm xuống, và cạnh tranh nhau mãi, và tiến trình đó đã quyết định số phận của thế giới [3]. Thời bây giờ cũng thế, chính trị cạnh tranh quyền lực ở tầm lớn sẽ tác động lên các sự kiện lớn, và kết quả cạnh tranh sẽ được quyết định bởi sức mạnh của các bên: từ nhân lực và tài lực cho đến khả năng quản trị quốc gia và hiệu quả của chính sách đối ngoại.

Theo Kotkin thì thế kỷ này phần lớn sẽ được quyết định bởi Hoa Kỳ và Trung Quốc trong việc quản lý nguồn lực và quan hệ của họ. Nhiều người tự thuyết phục rằng sự hội nhập toàn cầu chủ yếu là về kinh tế và các quan điểm tương đồng, và là tiến trình không thể tránh được. Chỉ có vài người, chẳng hạn như Samuel Huntington, chỉ ra rằng văn hóa là quan trọng hơn, và sự hội nhập chỉ làm nổi bật thêm sự khác biệt hơn là hòa tan nó, trong hay ngoài nước. Năm 2004, Huntington nhận xét giới tinh hoa Hoa Kỳ và công chúng có một khoảng cách khác biệt lớn về bản sắc dân tộc và vai trò của Hoa Kỳ trên thế giới; phần lớn giới tinh hoa ngày càng tách xa đất nước của họ, trong khi công chúng Hoa Kỳ thì lại vỡ mộng về chính quyền của mình. Ngược giòng lịch sử, từ cuối thế kỷ 19 đến thế kỷ 20, không giống như các nước Âu châu và Nhật Bản, Hoa Kỳ dành rất ít thời gian để áp đặt nền cai trị thuộc địa trực tiếp đối với các nước khác. Hoa Kỳ, thay vào đó, chọn phát huy quyền lợi của mình với các đồng minh tự nguyện, các định chế đa phương và tự do thương mại. Sự chọn lựa đó đến từ ý thức tư lợi (enlightened self-interest) hơn là lòng vị tha, và được yểm trợ bởi sức mạnh quân sự áp đảo. Khác với trường phái chủ nghĩa cấp tiến, Kotkin không nhìn nhận những định chế đa phương và các tiến trình của hệ thống hậu chiến là “trật tự quốc tế cấp tiến”, cái mà ông cho là cái nhìn ảo huyền của một số người, chứ thật ra nó là cơ chế để Hoa Kỳ tổ chức và phát triển vòng ảnh hưởng lớn lao của mình.

Kotkin nhận định độc tài thì hùng mạnh nhưng lại dễ bể, trong khi dân chủ thì dễ động lòng nhưng bền vững. Trung Quốc đang vươn lên trên nhiều mặt, với nền kinh tế khổng lồ và phóng chiếu sức mạnh của mình, cứng cũng như mềm, ở mọi hướng. Vấn đề chính hiện nay là liệu sự mở rộng vòng ảnh hưởng của Trung Quốc có đưa đến sự thay đổi trật tự quốc tế mà Hoa Kỳ đang lãnh đạo không? Và câu hỏi thực tế cần đặt ra là trên con đường như thế, liệu Trung Quốc sẽ dẫm nát một số quốc gia trên chặng đường đó vì nó có thể, và Hoa Kỳ phải chia sẻ lãnh đạo toàn cầu với Trung Quốc vì nó không có sự chọn lựa nào khác? Trong vị thế Hoa Kỳ, nếu chọn chiến lược chuyển tiếp từ hoạt động mạnh mẽ toàn cầu trên mọi mặt (như các chính sách trước đây) sang một số hoạt động chọn lọc chỉ để phục vụ quyền lợi quốc gia, thì sẽ được hoan nghênh trong nước, mặc dầu các chính trị gia và chuyên gia sẽ phản kháng.

Theo Kotkin, để các đấu sĩ ngày nay không bị mất đầu như các thế hệ trước của họ, bốn điều cần xảy ra trước sự biến đổi khôn lường của cuộc cách mạng công nghệ bốn. Một, các nhà làm chính sách Tây phương phải tìm ra những phương thức để đại đa số người dân của họ được hưởng lợi và ủng hộ cho một thế giới mở rộng và hội nhập. Hai, các nhà làm chính sách Trung Quốc phải bảo đảm sự trổi dậy của họ là hòa bình, bằng thỏa hiệp, hơn là cưỡng ép các quốc gia bên ngoài. Ba, Hoa Kỳ cần phải duy trì vị thế cân bằng chính xác giữa răn đe và đảm bảo mạnh mẽ đối với Trung Quốc, và tìm cách ổn định các vấn đề nội địa. Bốn, sau cùng, phép màu nhiệm cần đến đối với Đài Loan (vì theo Kotkin thì dù muốn hay không Đài Loan vẫn mang giá trị chiến lược trong mối quan hệ giữa Hoa Kỳ và Trung Quốc).

Thế giới cấp tiến (liberal world)

Thế giới cấp tiến nhìn nhận quy luật, tương thuộc và hợp tác quyết định tất cả.

Theo giáo sư G. John Ikenberry và Daniel Deudney thì hệ thống và trật tự quốc tế tự do sẽ tiếp tục tồn tại, mặc dầu sức mạnh tương xứng của Hoa Kỳ đã gia giảm [4]. Các thế lực đen tối, từ chủ nghĩa phi tự do, độc tài, dân tộc, bảo hộ, vòng ảnh hưởng, chủ nghĩa xét lại lãnh thổ đã không những biến mất mà còn trở lại gây ảnh hưởng. Trung Quốc và Nga đã làm tiêu tan mọi hy vọng chuyển hóa sang dân chủ, trong khi Hoa Kỳ và Anh, hai bảo hộ của trật tự quốc tế cấp tiến lại tự chọn thái độ tự huỷ. Tuy nhiên hai ông tin rằng chủ nghĩa cấp tiến trong đó nền dân chủ cấp tiến như là một hệ thống chính quyền, và nền trật tự cấp tiến như là một khung sườn định hình chính trị quốc tế, sẽ tiếp tục ngự trị. Lý do, theo hai ông, vì tính cách tương thuộc (interdependence). Khi sự tương thuộc về kinh tế, an ninh và môi trường càng gia tăng thì người dân và chính phủ khắp nơi sẽ phải làm việc với nhau để giải quyết vấn đề, nếu không tất cả sẽ bị tổn hại nghiêm trọng.

Hai giáo sư biện luận không có gì chắc chắn để bảo đảm rằng lịch sử sẽ kết thúc với sự chiến thắng của chủ nghĩa cấp tiến, nhưng điều chắc chắn là một trật tự thế giới lương thiện sẽ mang tính cấp tiến. Một thế giới mà có nhiều quốc gia tư bản có nền dân chủ cấp tiến sẽ hòa bình, thịnh vượng và tôn trọng nhân quyền. Những người cấp tiến hay bị phê bình là có những giả định quá lạc quan, lý tưởng, ngay cả không tưởng, về tiến trình lịch sử nhân loại. Trên thực tế tinh thần lạc quan của họ có điều kiện, họ công nhận có những thỏa hiệp bi thảm (không tránh được), và họ cũng để ý đến những khả năng có thể dẫn đến thảm họa ở tầng lớn. Giống như người hiện thực, người cấp tiến cũng ghi nhận rằng bản chất con người thường muốn có quyền lực, và do đó người cấp tiến vận động cho sự ràng buộc của hiến pháp và pháp luật. Nhưng khác với người hiện thực nhìn lịch sử như là sự lập đi lập lại, người cấp tiến là kẻ kế thừa gia sản của thời đại Khai sáng, của sự sáng tạo khoa học kỹ thuật, cái mà đưa đến bao nhiêu khả năng tiến bộ cũng như thảm hoạ cho nhân loại.

Chủ nghĩa cấp tiến chủ yếu là thực dụng. Người cấp tiến hiện đại ủng hộ các chính quyền dân chủ, hệ thống kinh tế dựa trên thị trường, và các định chế quốc tế không phải vì lý tưởng mà vì sự sắp xếp như thế sẽ phục vụ tốt hơn cho nhân loại, hơn tất cả những giải pháp khác. Chủ nghĩa cấp tiến cũng có khả năng thích ứng thực dụng và có thiên hướng đưa đến những sáng tạo định chế (institutional innovations) mang tính sống còn đối với các thử thách đang hiện ra, bao gồm trí tuệ nhân tạo, chiến tranh mạng và kỹ thuật di truyền.

Trên hết, chủ nghĩa cấp tiến có sức quyến rủ toàn cầu và vĩnh viễn bởi vì nó cam kết đối với nhân phẩm và tự do cá nhân. Nó soi sáng ý tưởng khoan dung, điều mà chắc chắn cần thiết trong một thế giới càng tương tác và đa dạng. Mặc dầu chủ thuyết này đến từ Tây phương, các giá trị của nó đã trở thành phổ quát, và những nhà vô địch ủng hộ nó bao gồm Mahatma Gandhi, Mikhail Gorbachev và Nelson Mandela. Mặu dầu chủ nghĩa đế quốc, nô lệ và kỳ thị chủng tộc đã làm xấu đi lịch sử Tây phương, chủ nghĩa cấp tiến đi đầu các nỗ lực, vừa hòa bình vừa chiến đấu, để cải tổ và chấm dứt các hành xử trên. Đến mức độ mà vòng cung lịch sử đã hướng đến công lý, đó là do những hoạt động và cam kết đạo đức của người cấp tiến và những liên minh của họ.

Hai giáo sư phân tích nguyên nhân đưa đến sự suy thoái của dân chủ và sự trồi dậy của chủ nghĩa dân túy trong thời gian qua. Lý do phần lớn là do sự bất bình đẳng kinh tế quá lớn, nhưng giải pháp cho các vấn đề này là sự cần thiết quay trở lại nền dân chủ cấp tiến. Chẳng hạn như áp dụng các chính sách dân chủ xã hội thể hiện trong New Deal, thông qua các luật thuế tiến bộ, và đầu tư nhiều hơn vào giáo dục và cơ sở hạ tầng. Nói cách khác, giải pháp cho các vấn đề của dân chủ cấp tiến là dân chủ cấp tiến nhiều hơn. Tóm lại, hai giáo sư kết luận chủ nghĩa cấp tiến, tự bản chất, có những hạt giống để cứu lấy chính nó.

Hai giáo sư cho rằng sau Thế Chiến II, các nền dân chủ cấp tiến đã hợp tác để tạo ra một trật tự mà phản ảnh quyền lợi chung của họ. Sau hơn bảy thập niên, mặt dầu có những điểm bất toàn của nó, nó đã bám rễ quá sâu, trong đó hàng trăm triệu người, nếu không phải là tỷ người, đã có những hoạt động và mong đợi nhắm vào các định chế và khuyến khích của trật tự này, cho nên không dễ gì thay đổi nó. Nếu nghĩ rằng một vài năm theo xu hướng mị dân thì quốc gia sẽ đột ngột thay đổi chủ nghĩa cấp tiến là điều không tưởng. Các xã hội tư bản dân chủ cấp tiến đã phát đạt và mở mang vì nó rất giỏi trong việc kích thích và vận dụng sáng tạo nhưng đồng thời giải quyết các ảnh hưởng quá đà của chính nó hay các yếu tố tiêu cực ngoại cuộc.

Hai giáo sư đã đi sâu phân tích các yếu tố lịch sử và hiện tại để biện minh chủ nghĩa cấp tiến sẽ trường tồn. Tính năng động của sự thay đổi liên tục và tính tương thuộc gia tăng đang ngày càng tăng tốc độ, từ vấn đề môi trường, vũ khí sinh học, chiến tranh mạng, đã làm cho mọi quốc gia phải dựa vào các quy định quốc tế để duy trì nền an ninh của mình, và chủ nghĩa tư bản toàn cầu phải dựa vào khả năng quản trị tài chánh và thương mại quốc tế. Ngay cả Trump mặc dầu có những lời nói và hành động trái ngược với xu hướng cấp tiến, trên thực tế vẫn tiếp tục nhiều chính sách của các vị tiền nhiệm; còn trong các vấn đề khác thì các quốc gia trong trật tự cấp tiến này đã nhận lãnh vai trò này, không cần đến Trump hay lãnh đạo từ Oval Office. Trong thời đại thương thuộc toàn cầu, ngay cả người hiện thực cũng phải là một người quốc tế (internationalist).

Tóm lại, nền dân chủ cấp tiến đã tồn tại và phát triển khi phải đối diện với bao thử thách lớn lao hơn, từ Đại Khủng khoảng đến Trục Quyền (Đức Ý Nhật) đến phong trào cộng sản quốc tế. Do đó có mọi lý do để tin là nó sẽ vượt qua thử thách kỳ này. Nhưng trên hết, sự lạc quan về chủ nghĩa cấp tiến dựa trên một sự thật đơn giản: các giải pháp của những vấn đề hôm nay là càng dân chủ và càng trật tự cấp tiến. Tương thuộc và hợp tác là đặc tính của nền chính trị thế giới. Qua tiến trình lịch sử, tiến hóa, khủng hoảng và thay đổi huyên náo là điều bình thường, và chủ nghĩa cấp tiến rất giỏi về mặt cưỡi trên các bão táp xáo trộn của chuyển động lịch sử. Theo hai giáo sư nhận định thì các chế độ phi tự do sẽ bị chôn vùi trong thời nguy biến trong khi chủ nghĩa cấp tiến sẽ chậm rãi tiến về phía trước.

Thế giới bộ lạc (tribal world)

Thế giới bộ lạc nhìn nhận bản sắc và chủng tộc quyết định tất cả.

Giáo sư luật Amy Chua cho rằng người Mỹ, giới phân tích cũng như các nhà làm chính sách của họ, không quan tâm hoặc không ghi nhận tầm trong trọng của chủ nghĩa bộ lạc trong chính trị quốc tế [5]. Họ chỉ chú tâm đến vai trò của ý thức hệ và kinh tế và có khuynh hướng nhìn nhà nước-quốc gia (nation-states) như là thành phần tổ chức quan trọng nhất. Làm như thế họ đánh giá không đúng về vai trò mà đặc tính của nhóm (group) đã ảnh hưởng đến cách hành xử của con người như thế nào. Họ bỏ qua dữ kiện quan trọng rằng tại nhiều nơi, bản sắc vẫn mang tầm quan trọng nhất - nơi mà người ta sẽ sẵn sàng sống chết vì nó - không phải là vấn đề quốc gia mà là chủng tộc, vùng, tôn giáo, giáo phái hoặc gia tộc, bộ lạc. Không nhìn thấy sức mạnh của bộ lạc sẽ ảnh hưởng không chỉ đến cách người Mỹ nhìn thế giới mà còn cách họ hiểu về chính xã hội của họ.

Chua trích dẫn cuộc nghiên cứu gần đây của đội nghiên cứu tâm lý đối với các em bé 4 tới 6 tuổi, chia thành hai đội đỏ và xanh. Các em bé nam và nữ này thể hiện một trí nhớ lệch lạc có hệ thống, chỉ nhớ những điều tích cực về nhóm của mình nhưng tiêu cực đối với nhóm khác. Các nhà nghiên cứu kết luận rằng sự nhận thức của trẻ em đối với các bạn khác là méo mó sâu rộng chỉ vì là thành viên của một nhóm xã hội. Các cuộc nghiên cứu khác đối với trẻ em - thành phần được cho là ngây thơ, không bị nhiều thành kiến cũng như thành thật hơn - đưa đến những kết luận rằng khi thấy nhóm của mình thành tựu thì nó làm cho trung tâm tưởng thưởng (reward centres) của bộ não con người được kích thích; ngay cả khi nhóm khác bị thất bại hay đau đớn thì cũng phản ứng như thế; và sự đồng cảm với người cùng nhóm, hay sự ác cảm đối với người khác nhóm, nhất là khi các nhóm đó đã từng thù nghịch hay không thích nhau từ lâu, đã tác động lên trẻ em ngay từ nhỏ.

Chua biện luận rằng bản sắc nhiều khi mang tính quyết định hơn ý thức hệ. Trường hợp điển hình là Chiến tranh Việt Nam. Lãnh đạo Hoa Kỳ đã đánh giá quá thấp về việc người Việt trong cả hai miền Nam và Bắc muốn được độc lập dân tộc, so với sự cam kết đối với ý thức hệ Mác. Trong khi đó, Hà Nội chấp nhận sự ủng hộ về kinh tế và quân sự từ Trung Quốc, là đồng minh tiện lợi lúc đó, nhưng mỗi đứa bé Việt Nam từ nhỏ đã học lịch sử rằng cha ông của họ đã chiến đấu và đã chết để giải phóng đất nước của họ từ sự đô hộ ngàn năm của Trung Quốc, bắt đầu từ năm 111 trước Công nguyên. Cuộc chiến biên giới giữa Việt Nam và Trung Quốc năm 1979 càng chứng tỏ bản sắc quyết định hơn ý thức hệ cộng sản. Tuy nhiên lãnh đạo Hoa Kỳ trong cuộc chiến Việt Nam không cân nhắc yếu tố này trong chính sách của mình.

Chua cũng đưa trường hợp của Afghanistan ra làm thí dụ cho thấy Hoa Kỳ cũng quên tầm quan trọng của bản sắc chủng tộc. Sau sự kiện 11 tháng 9, Hoa Kỳ đưa quân vào Afghanistan để tiêu diệt al Qaeda và lật để chế độ Taliban. Afghanistan là quốc gia có mối quan hệ phức tạp giữa các sắc tộc và bộ lạc. Hơn 200 năm, Pashtuns là sắc tộc lớn nhất chiếm vị thế áp đảo tại đây. Taliban không chỉ là một phong trào Hồi Giáo mà còn là phong trào chủng tộc. Pashtuns thành lập và chiếm đa số Taliban. Sau khi lật đổ Taliban năm 2001 chỉ trong vòng 75 ngày, Hoa Kỳ thành lập chính phủ đứng đầu là Hamid Karzai, người gốc Pashtuns, nhưng phần lớn các bộ chính trong chính phủ này đều là người gốc Tajiks. Người Pashtuns nghĩ họ bị gạt ra ngoài lề, cho nên mặc dầu nhiều người Pashtuns cũng thù ghét Taliban, ít ai trong họ sẵn sàng ủng hộ một chính phủ mà đặt quyền lợi của kẻ thù truyền kiếp của họ lên trên chính họ. 17 năm sau khi Hoa Kỳ xâm chiếm nước này, một cuộc chiến dài nhất của Hoa Kỳ, Taliban vẫn chiếm một phần lớn lãnh thổ của Afghanistan. Bây giờ tuy các giới khoa bảng và các nhà làm chính sách hiểu những phức tạp về chủng tộc tại Afghanistan, sự nhận thức này hơi trễ và cũng chưa mang lại ý nghĩa nhiều đối với chính sách tại đây.

Một trường hợp khác nữa là chiến tranh Iraq. Các kiến trúc gia và những người ủng hộ cuộc chiến Iraq không cân nhắc các yếu tố đã chia rẽ sâu sắc giữa các hệ phái theo Shiites, Sunnis và Kurds tại Iraq, tầm quan trọng chính yếu về sự trung thành đối với bộ lạc và gia tộc trong xã hội Iraq. Bởi vì họ quên một điều cụ thể “sự hiện hữu của một thiểu số áp đảo thị trường (market – dominant minority)”. Sunnis đã áp đảo nền chính trị của Iraq nhiều thế kỷ, đầu tiên dưới sự cai trị của Ottoman, và đặc biệt dưới thời Saddam Hussain. Trước khi Hoa Kỳ xâm chiếm Iraq, khoảng 15 phần trăm dân số Iraq là người Ả Rập Sunni thống trị nền kinh tế, chính trị và quân sự của nước này, trong khi phái Shiites chiếm đa số ở thành thị và nông thôn. Thay vì mang lại hòa bình và thịnh vượng cho Iraq, nền dân chủ non trẻ đã dẫn đến chiến tranh giáo phái, đưa đến sự hình thành nên cái gọi là Nhà nước Hồi Giáo IS/ISIS, một phong trào cực đoan phái Sunni nhằm tiêu diệt phái Shiite, những người bỏ đạo và cả người Tây phương vô đạo. Nhờ chính sách thay đổi 180 độ về sự quan tâm của quân lực Hoa Kỳ kể từ năm 2007 để họ được giáo dục hơn về các động lực phức tạp về giáo phái và sắc tộc tại quốc gia này nên đã mang lại những thành công đáng kể, kể cả sự gia giảm về bạo lực giữa các giáo phái và nạn nhân của quân đội Hoa Kỳ và Iraq.

Trong những năm gần đây, Hoa Kỳ, một quốc gia được xem là dân chủ cấp tiến và phần lớn không hiểu các suy nghĩ và hành xử kiểu hậu bộ lạc (post tribalism), nay cũng không còn miễn nhiễm nữa. Lần đầu tiên trong lịch sử Hoa Kỳ, người Mỹ da trắng đã gần như bị mất vị thế chiếm đa số tại quốc gia này. Cuộc nghiên cứu năm 2011 cho thấy hơn một nửa người Mỹ da trắng tin rằng “người da trắng thay thế người da đen thành nạn nhân chính của sự kỳ thị”. Khi các nhóm cảm thấy bị đe doạ, họ dễ trở thành phòng thủ hơn, hẹp hòi hơn và khoác áo chủ nghĩa bộ lạc hơn (ta với địch). Nó cũng đưa đến sự căng thẳng giữa da trắng với da đen, Thiên Chúa Giáo, Da Thái và Hồi Giáo, cấp tiến và bảo thủ v.v…

Nhưng có một nguyên nhân khác dẫn đến căn bệnh chủ nghĩa bộ lạc tại Hoa Kỳ ngày nay. Lịch sử Hoa Kỳ trước đến nay không có chuyện “một thiểu số áp đảo thị trường”. Phần lớn đất nước này do đa số người da trắng tương đối thống nhất nhau ảnh hưởng một cách áp đảo về kinh tế, chính trị và văn hóa. Nhưng giờ đây, sự thịnh vượng của Hoa Kỳ tập trung vào một thiểu số nhỏ sống dọc các bờ biển, và họ chiếm phần lớn Wall Street, truyền thông và Thung lũng Silicon (Valley). Tuy họ không phụ thuộc vào bất kỳ một chủng tộc nào, họ có những nét văn hóa riêng biệt, họ chia sẻ các giá trị phổ quát như chủ nghĩa thế tục, đa văn hóa, chấp nhận đa nguyên giới tính, ủng hộ di dân và nền chính trị cấp tiến. Họ được xem là không quan tâm hay ngay cả đối nghịch với quyền lợi đất nước. Chua biện luận Trump biết sử dụng các yếu tố này, sự bất mãn của người dân nói chung và người Mỹ da trắng nói riêng, tuyên bố “phải lấy lại nước mình” hoặc “làm cho nước Mỹ vĩ đại trở lại”.

Chua kết luận rằng một cách để thoát khỏi hoàn cảnh chia rẽ này là phải giải quyết cả hai vấn đề kinh tế lẫn văn hóa. Hàng trăm năm qua, cơ hội kinh tế đã nâng cao nấc thang xã hội giúp cho Hoa Kỳ hội nhập thành công mọi người khác thuộc mọi sắc tộc nhau hơn tất cả các quốc gia khác. Cho nên sự sụp đổ của cơ hội thăng tiến đó nên được xem là một vấn đề cấp bách của quốc gia. Trên bình diện thế giới cũng như tại Hoa Kỳ, sự đoàn kết sẽ không tự nhiên đến mà phải bằng sự chăm chỉ, lãnh đạo gan đạ và ý chí tập thể.

Thế giới Mác (Marxist world)

Thế giới Mác xít nhìn nhận phân chia đồng đều và bình đẳng vật chất quyết định tất cả.

Kể từ năm 1967, thu nhập trung bình của 60 phần trăm dân số Hoa Kỳ đã trì trệ mặc dầu sự thu nhập và giàu có của những người giàu nhất đã gia tăng. Robin Varghese nhận xét rằng Mác tin tưởng cách mạng sẽ đến đối với các nền kinh tế tư bản phát triển nhất, nhưng không, nó lại đến với các quốc gia chậm phát triển hơn như Nga và Trung Quốc [6]. Giữa thế kỷ 20, các nước Tây Âu và Hoa Kỳ đã học cách quản lý sự bất ổn và bất công, đặc trưng của nền tư bản thời Mác. Tuy nhiên, hơn ai hết, Mác hiểu rõ cơ chế đã làm suy thoái chủ nghĩa tư bản, và các vấn đề đã mọc ra khi chính quyền không tích cực giải quyết nó, như đã thấy trong 40 năm qua. Do đó Varghese cho rằng chủ nghĩa Mác không quá cố mà vẫn còn cắt nghĩa được các vấn đề ngày hôm nay.

Varghese phân tích áp lực của giới thương gia là cần tích luỹ vốn liếng trong điều kiện cạnh tranh của thị trường, như sau. Một, những người công nhân luôn nhận lấy phần ít hơn về mình so với những gì họ đóng góp để tạo ra kết quả, đưa đến sự bất công và bần cùng. Hai, sự cạnh tranh giữa các nhà tư bản để giảm chi, như lương công nhân, bắt buộc họ phải nghĩ đến khoa học kỹ thuật để có thể giảm bớt sức lao động. Các kỹ thuật này sẽ loại trừ một số việc, làm cho một thành phần xã hội vĩnh viễn bị mất hoàn toàn hay một phần việc làm. Ba, Mác cho rằng sự cạnh tranh gây gắt sẽ dẫn đến sự tập trung và sự lớn mạnh của một số doanh nghiệp, và các doanh nghiệp có nhiều lợi nhuận hơn sẽ loại trừ các doanh nghiệp nhỏ hơn, và càng như thế càng cạnh tranh và càng hiện đại về kỹ thuật, đưa đến nhiều thặng dư hơn. Tuy nhiên các thặng dư này cũng không được chia đồng đều, làm cho hai điều một và hai nói trên gia tăng.

Nhưng Mác đã đánh giá thấp sức mạnh của nỗ lực chung (của chế độ tư bản) để cải tổ chính trị. Và Mác cũng sai lầm về khả năng của nền kinh tế tư bản trong việc thỏa mãn nhu cầu của con người, ít nhất là về mặt vật chất.

Đối với các nước phát triển, từ năm 1948 đến 1973, lương bổng gia tăng song song với năng suất, nhưng kể từ năm 1973, năng suất gia tăng gần 75 phần trăm, trong khi mức lương thật sự chỉ tăng dưới 10 phần trăm. Đối với 60 phần trăm gia đình, lương bổng không thay đổi gì đáng kể. Và đây chính là lý do làm cho Mác hiện hữu trở lại, như đã tiên đoán được diễn tiến của chủ nghĩa tư bản. Nói cách khác, tuy chủ nghĩa tư bản mang lại sự giàu có và sự phát triển khoa học kỹ thuật chưa từng thấy trước đây, nó không thể đáp ứng được nhu cầu của toàn xã hội.

Theo Varghese thì Mác biện luận rằng vấn đề không phải là giới hạn về vật chất mà là chính trị và xã hội: sự sản xuất được sắp xếp theo quyền lợi của giai cấp tư bản hơn là cho toàn xã hội; ngay cả khi cá nhân các nhà tư bản và công nhân suy nghĩ và hành động hợp lý, cả hệ thống lại phi lý. Khi nhu cầu sản xuất gia tăng, giới tư bản muốn đầu tư nhiều hơn vào khoa học kỹ thuật để gia tăng năng xuất, gia giảm tiền lương cho công nhân. Trong vài thập niên qua, những người dưới bằng cấp trung học chiếm tỷ lệ dưới 50 phần trăm lao động. Với kỹ nghệ tự động hóa và trí tuệ nhân tạo, tất cả các việc này đều có thể bị xóa sạch trong vài thập niên tới. Theo tổ chức OECD thì có đến 14 phần trăm, tức 60 triệu, công việc trong các quốc gia này có thể được tự động hóa. Theo công ty tư vấn McKinsey thì 30 phần trăm của mọi thời gian làm việc toàn cầu có thể được tự động hóa. Những công nhân này sẽ làm gì, sẽ được phân phối trong xã hội như thế nào, thì chưa ai biết được. Theo tiến trình của 50 năm qua gợi ý thì các công nhân này sẽ không được thu nhận vào lực lượng lao động nếu số phận của họ được quyết định bởi thị trường. Thêm vào đó, tiến trình thay đổi do khoa học kỹ thuật mang lại sẽ đưa đến sự tập trung thị trường (market concentration), với những thương nghiệp ngày càng lớn mạnh sẽ áp đảo sản xuất. Mác tiên đoán một thế giới không phải độc quyền mà là độc quyền cạnh tranh, trong đó những kẻ mạnh đang hiện hữu sẽ thụ hưởng lợi nhuận, những kẻ yếu hơn sẽ vất vả để tồn tại, và những kẻ mới vào sẽ phải nỗ lực sáng tạo để chiếm dần thị trường. Các thương nghiệp lớn có lợi thế hơn, về sáng chế cũng như mạng lưới sẵn có, mua và sát nhập các thương nghiệp nhỏ, hay sa thải công nhân khi cần để gia tăng cạnh tranh v.v… Từ năm 1982 đến nay, sáu lĩnh vực chiếm 80 phần trăm nhân công tại Hoa Kỳ (tài chánh, sản xuất, dịch vụ, bán lẻ, bán sỉ, và tiện ích và giao thông) ngày càng tập trung cạnh tranh. Khi các đại thương nghiệp như Amazon, Apple, FedEx chiếm áp đảo địa hạt của mình tại các nền kinh tế Tây phương, công nhân bị thiệt thòi nhiều nhất.

Sự thách thức lớn nhất đối với quan điểm của Mác là sự hình thành và phát triển của nhà nước phúc lợi (welfare states) ở Tây phương vào giữa thế kỷ 20, phần lớn là do các đảng dân chủ xã hội đại diện giới công nhân. Kiến trúc sư trí tuệ John Maynard Keynes là nhân vật chính của các phát động này. Ông biện luận rằng hoạt động kinh tế không phải được điều khiển bởi quyết định đầu tư của giới tư bản mà chủ yếu là sự tiêu thụ của người dân thường. Ảnh hưởng của Keynes lên nền kinh tế và chính trị rất lớn, giúp cho các đảng chính trị tả lẫn hữu điều chỉnh chính sách, đạt được hiệu năng, công bằng và mọi người đều có việc (full employment), điều mà Mác không thể tưởng tượng có thể xảy ra. Tuy nhiên từ thập niên 1970 trở đi, các chính phủ này gặp nhiều khó khăn trong việc vượt qua các giới hạn của chủ nghĩa tư bản, một bên là công việc đầy đủ cho mọi người, nhưng lực lượng lao động đến từ nó đã dẫn đến sự giảm sút lợi nhuận. Varghese cho rằng về lâu dài, quyền lợi kinh tế của tư bản đã thắng cung cách tổ chức chính trị của người dân.

Giải pháp cho các vấn đề phức tạp và đầy thử thách trên là đầu tiên ghi nhận sự giới hạn của chính trị trong thời đại vàng son của chủ nghĩa tư bản, bao gồm sự kết hợp của các công đoàn mạnh, sự quản trị cung cầu theo chủ thuyết của Keynes, chính sách tiền tệ lỏng lẻo, và sự quản lý vốn, sẽ không thể nào dẫn đến xã hội công bằng trong chủ nghĩa tư bản mãi được. Thử thách của ngày hôm nay là tìm ra những đường nét chính của nền kinh tế hỗn hợp mà đã đem lại những kết quả đáng kể trong thời đại vàng son của chủ nghĩa tư bản như nói trên, và thêm vào đó khởi động cho sự bình đẳng về phái tính và sắc tộc. Nói cách khác, nó cần sự sắp xếp định chế mới được hỗ trợ bởi các hình thức chính trị mới.

Thế giới kỹ thuật (Tech world)

Thế giới kỹ thuật nhìn nhận cách mạng công nghệ, nhất là trí tuệ nhân tạo, quyết định tất cả.

Theo Drum thì tiên đoán tương lai ra sao rất khó, thôi thì nhìn về quá khứ để tìm giải thích [7]. Thế kỷ 19 là bình minh của nền dân chủ cấp tiến. Nhưng nó cũng là thế kỷ của đế quốc và thực dân Tây phương. Nó cũng bắt đầu cuộc chiến tranh toàn diện. Thế lực tôn giáo đi xuống trong khi chủ nghĩa dân tộc đi lên. Và nó cũng bất đầu thời đại của bình đẳng. Phụ nữ đòi bình quyền tại Seneca Falls, New York, và Tân Tây Lan là quốc gia đầu tiên cấp quyền sử dụng lá phiếu bầu cử. Anh cấm buôn nô lệ, Hoa Kỳ giải phóng nô lệ và Nga trả tự do cho nông nô.

Dân chủ, chủ nghĩa tư bản, chủ nghĩa thực dân, chiến tranh hiện đại, chủ nghĩa dân tộc, và quyền bình đẳng đã đưa đến bao hệ quả, và lý do ra đời của hàng ngàn cuốn sách về các vấn đề này. Nhưng theo Kevin Drum thì tất cả những điều nêu trên không quan trọng. Điều quan trọng nhất của địa chính trị trong thế kỷ 19 là cuộc Cách mạng Công nghệ. Không có nó thì sẽ không có giai cấp trung lưu, như thế không có áp lực để dân chủ hóa. Sẽ không có cuộc cách mạng tư bản vì các nhà nước nông nghiệp không cần đến nó. Sẽ không có thực dân hóa ở tầm lớn bởi vì giới hạn của sự thèm muốn nguyên liệu thô đối với các quốc gia phi kỹ nghệ. Sẽ không có chiến tranh toàn diện nếu không có kỹ nghệ sản xuất thép và độ chính xác rẻ. Và nếu thế giới phần lớn vẫn ở trong trạng thái văn hóa và kinh tế chủ yếu dựa trên nền nông nghiệp sinh tồn truyền thống, rất có thể là nền nô lệ sẽ không chấm dứt và nữ quyền sẽ không bắt đầu.

Các yếu tố chính tác động ở thời đại này là động cơ hơi nước, lý thuyết vi trùng, điện và xe lửa. Vào năm 1800, không ai biết tương lai địa chính trị của thế kỷ 19 sẽ như thế nào, nhưng nó đã được chuyển động trước đó chín thập niên khi Thomas Newcomen đã chế tạo thành công động cơ sử dụng hơi nước đầu tiên. Drum cũng tin rằng các thế hệ người máy tiếp theo sẽ tác động lên tiến trình lịch sử nhân loại trong thế kỷ 21. Kết quả cuộc cạnh tranh và đối đầu giữa hai cường quốc Hoa Kỳ và Trung Quốc sẽ được định đoạt khi một bên thắng được trí tuệ nhân tạo. Để đạt đến đó, Drum cho rằng máy vi tính cần phần cứng mạnh như bộ não con người (hardware) và phần mềm có khả năng suy nghĩ (software). Hiện tại bộ óc con người có thể tính từ 10 đến 100 petaflops (bằng một triệu tỷ, tức 10 luỹ thừa 15, tính toán một giây), và sức mạnh của máy vi tính hiện nay cũng tương đương như thế. Nhưng một cái máy siêu vi tính như thế chiếm bằng một căn phòng, tốn hơn 200 triệu, và tiền điện mỗi năm tốn 5 triệu đô la. Vấn đề là làm sao máy nhỏ hơn và rẻ hơn. Nghiên cứu về máy tính lượng tử hiện nay nằm trong mục tiêu đó. Các nhà chuyên về trí tuệ nhân tạo AI cho rằng có 50 phần trăm cơ hội là AI sẽ thực hiện được tất cả các hoạt động của con người vào 2060, trong khi giới AI Á Đông thì cho rằng có thể hiện thực khoảng năm 2045.

Các nhà nghiên cứu này không nghĩ rằng các máy móc này chỉ làm được các việc thường ngày thôi, mà nó còn có thể nấu burger, viết tiểu thuyết và thực hiện giải phẫu. Nó sẽ làm nhanh hơn, không bao giờ biết mệt, sẽ cập nhật kiến thức thế giới mới nhất trong vòng tích tắc, và có sức mạnh phân tích hơn bất cứ một cá nhân nào. Hiện nay thì chưa có vẻ gì sẽ đạt được kết quả như thế, nhưng trng vòng vài thập niên tới, máy robot sẽ làm cho hàng triệu người mất việc.

Drum cho rằng mấu chốt vấn đề là liệu Trung Quốc, trong vòng 20 năm tới, đạt được kỹ nghệ AI tốt nhất không? Nếu được, họ có thể trở thành bá quyền, nếu họ muốn. Nếu không thể thì họ sẽ không được.

Còn vấn đề khủng bố thánh chiến? Nó sẽ trở thành nạn nhân của AI. Những máy bay không người lái hiện tại (drone) đã đẩy lùi các nhóm khủng bố này, nói gì đến các máy được điều khiển bởi AI trong tương lai. Không có tổ chức nào với kỹ thuật kém có thể tồn tại được. Chiến tranh trong tương lai chủ yếu là do giữa máy móc với nhau. Nhiều công việc sẽ mất vì tự động hóa, kể cả lái xe truck. Phân tích của công ty PwC vào năm 2017 cho hay có đến 38 phần trăm công việc tại Hoa Kỳ có nguy cơ bị tự động hóa vào đầu thập niên 2030. Vào thập niên 2040, các nhà nghiên cứu phỏng đoán các máy vi tính sẽ có thể tự thực hiện nghiên cứu công trình toán học mới, giải phẫu, viết tiểu thuyết bán chạy nhất và có thể làm bất cứ công việc nào đòi hỏi khả năng nhận thức như trên. Không như cuộc Cách mạng Công nghệ đầu tốn gần 100 năm để chuyển động, lần này nó chỉ mất một hai thập niên, và AI sẽ là kỹ nghệ mang lại lợi nhuận nhiều nhất so với tất cả các thứ khác.

Điều này có hệ quả gì đối với chính trị? Theo Drum thì vai trò của các chính quyền hiện tại là quản lý và kiểm soát nền kinh tế cho quyền lợi chung của toàn thể người dân. Cho nên nền chính trị trong tương lai là chính quyền có khả năng sử dụng sức mạnh của AI cho đa số dân chúng. Những người theo chủ nghĩa Mác thì đã có lời giải: để robot kiểm soát phương tiện sản xuất, rồi phân chia chiến lợi phẩm cho cho mọi người hưởng theo nhu cầu của họ. Nền dân chủ cấp tiến cũng sẽ có cơ hội nếu lãnh đạo của họ nhìn nhận vấn đề một cách nghiêm túc, tìm cách làm cho chủ nghĩa tư bản thích ứng với một thế giới mà trong đó việc sản xuất hàng hóa tách biệt với công việc (lao động). Điều đó có nghĩa kìm chế sức mạnh của tài phiệt, tái suy nghĩ khái niệm thế nào là một tập đoàn, và chấp nhận một mức độ bình đẳng nào đó về phân phối hàng hóa và dịch vụ.

Drum ghi nhận hai thử thách lớn nhất của thế kỷ 21 là nạn thất nghiệp lớn do AI mang lại, và thay đổi khí hậu do nhu cầu năng lượng. Với kỹ thuật tân tiến hiện nay, gió và năng lượng mặt trời là lời giải cho năng lượng sạch. Nhưng cần phải sản xuất ở tầm lớn. Robot rẻ và khôn, tức có AI, sẽ là lời giải. Chủ nghĩa bộ lạc không còn quan trọng nữa. Ai quan tâm đến bản sắc nếu công việc đều do máy móc làm ra? Dân chủ cấp tiến sẽ còn hiện hữu nếu nó biết cách giải quyết nạn thất nghiệp lớn so với các hình thức chính quyền khác. Tôn giáo cũng sẽ gặp nhiều khó khăn với thế giới đầy máy móc như thế. Lịch sử chứng minh sự đói kém về kinh tế ở tầm lớn đem lại ít hơn những cải tổ tiến bộ sâu sắc so với các cuộc cách mạng và chiến tranh bạo động. Drum cho rằng điều quan trọng là phải hiểu và nghĩ đến cách đối phó tốt nhất đối với những gì sẽ xảy ra trong thời gian tới.

Thế giới hâm nóng (warming world)

Thế giới hâm nóng nhìn nhận thay đổi khí hậu và hợp tác toàn cầu quyết định tất cả.

Nền dân chủ toàn cầu đang xuống dốc, sự phục hồi kinh tế không làm cho lương bổng người dân Tây phương tăng lên đáng kể, và sự trổi dậy của Trung Quốc đe doạ quyền lực của Hoa Kỳ, có nguy cơ đưa đến cuộc chiến tranh khủng khiếp. Tuy thế, đối với Joshua Busby, không có đe doạ nào trong thế kỷ 21 có thể so sánh bằng hâm nóng địa đầu [8]. Tác động của khí hậu trái đất đòi hỏi sự chú tâm và nguồn lực, và sẽ có ảnh hưởng lớn lao lên nền kinh tế toàn cầu và quan hệ quốc tế hơn bất cứ một trọng lực nào khác trên thế giới hiện nay.

Hiện tại độ nóng bề mặt trái đất là trên 1.2 độ Celsius so với trước thời Cách mạng Công nghệ. Giới khoa học gia đồng thuận với nhau rằng nhiệt độ gia tăng cao nhất để tránh thay đổi khí hậu là 2 độ C. Sẽ không có khác biệt bao nhiêu giữa gia tăng 2 độ C so với 3 hay 4 độ. Khi khí hậu gia tăng, sự phân tán hiện tượng khí hậu sẽ chuyển đổi. Các trận lụt mà trước đây 100 năm xảy ra bây giờ sẽ xảy ra 50 hay 20 năm. Các trận mưa vũ bão như tại Hawaii đầu năm nay với 50 inches trong vòng 24 tiếng đồng hồ có thể diễn ra thường xuyên hơn. Các kiểu thời tiết mới này sẽ gây ra các xáo trộn xã hội và chính trị, đưa đến các ảnh hưởng lên địa chính trị. Mực nước biển dâng, các vùng đất trồng trột chết, các trận bão và lụt khổng lồ sẽ làm cho một số quốc gia không thể sống được nữa. Những thay đổi này sẽ thử nghiệm hệ thống quốc tế hiện nay những cách thức mới và khó tiên đoán.

Theo Busby, các đe doạ mang tính lịch sử toàn cầu đòi hỏi mức độ hợp tác mang tính lịch sử toàn cầu. Nếu nhân loại đối diện thành công với vấn đề này, đó là vì lãnh đạo biết pha trộn trật tự toàn cầu với ý thức về mục đích chung và ghi nhận sự thay đổi sâu sắc về vấn đề phân chia quyền lực. Trung Quốc và Hoa Kỳ phải làm việc chặt chẽ với nhau và với các tác nhân khác, các chính quyền trực thuộc các quốc gia, cũng như các công ty và các tổ chức phi chính phủ.

Trong 17 năm được ghi nhận có bằng chứng nóng nhất thì 16 năm là từ năm 2001 đến nay. Nhiều kiểu mẫu khí hậu rất lạ diễn ra khắp nơi, các khoa học gia nhận định có cái liên quan đến thay đổi khí hậu, có cái không rõ lắm. Mùa thay đổi. Hạn hán xảy ra khi các nhà khí tượng học trông đợi mưa. Thiếu mưa đưa đến nguy cơ cháy rừng, như đã thấy tại tiểu bang California năm ngoái (lẫn năm nay). Khi mưa, nó mưa ào ạt cùng lúc, như đã thấy ở Houston qua trận cuồng phong Harvey. Khi mực nước biển gia tăng và bão gia tăng mạnh mẽ hơn, các biến cố mà từng được xem là mực nước cao bình thường sẽ gây lụt cho các hạ tầng cơ sở ven biển, như đã xảy ra ở Miami trong những năm gần đây. Điều đó đưa đến nhu cầu gắn các hệ thống thiết bị bơm nước mưa với trị giá hàng trăm triệu đô la.

Đến giữa thế kỷ này, mực nước biển gia tăng cao đến độ nó có thể phá hoại vùng đất nông nghiệp và nước uống ở nhiều quốc gia hải đảo thấp so với mặt nước biển, làm cho những nơi đó không thể sống được lâu nữa trước khi nó bị ngập dưới nước. Các biến chuyển này sẽ thay đổi nền chính trị toàn cầu một cách sâu sắc. Các quốc gia như Trung Quốc và Hoa Kỳ có dân số lớn và hạ tầng cơ sở giá trị nhưng dễ bị nguy hại đối với thay đổi khí hậu. Các chính quyền này sẽ phải sử dụng đến các phương tiện quân sự để cứu người và tái xây dựng các thị trấn và thành phố bị tàn phá. Trong năm 2017, ba trận bão lớn đánh phá Hoa Kỳ liên tiếp, và các cơ quan dân vệ phòng chống thiên tai phải cần được hậu thuẫn của quân đội để ngăn ngừa tổn thất nhân mạng tầm lớn. Hàng chục ngàn vệ binh quốc gia đã được điều động để cứu người, cung cấp về tiếp tế, tái thiết các dịch vụ căn bản và pháp luật. Tổng phí đối với các cơn bão này và các trường hợp cấp cứu khác liên quan đến thiên tai trong năm 2017 thôi đã lên đến 300 tỷ đô la.

Trung Quốc cũng có các vấn đề riêng của nó. Dọc ven biển phía nam, những thành phố như Quảng Châu và Thượng Hải, dễ bị lụt lội. Ở phía bắc, trung tâm công nghiệp của quốc gia, các vùng này thường bị thiếu nước, ảnh hưởng đến 500 triệu người. Trong 25 năm qua, 28 ngàn con sông tại Trung Quốc đã biến mất. Giải quyết vấn nạn lớn như thế không rẻ. Một dự án chuyển nước từ nam lên bắc tốn ít nhất 48 tỷ đô la, và mặc dầu chưa hoàn tất, Trung Quốc cho rằng họ đã cải thiện được an ninh nước và 50 triệu người được hưởng lợi. Đối với những nơi bị lũ lụt, Trung Quốc đang nghiên cứu các thành phố hút nước nơi có thể gia tăng thoát nước tự nhiên.

Hoa Kỳ và Trung Quốc là hai quốc gia giàu có nên có thể chịu đựng tốn kém đối với các thiên tai này. Những quốc gia khác thì vất vả hơn, tổn thất về nhân mạng và vật chất nhiều hơn so với khả năng họ có thể gánh chịu. Từng cơn bão tuy gây thiệt hại đáng kể nhưng người ta có thể vực lại được. Còn thay đổi khí hậu thì nó gây thiệt hại lâu dài hơn. Trong khi một số quốc gia thì tràn đầy nước, những nước khác thì lại thiếu nước trầm trọng. Năm 2011 Somalia sau bao nhiêu thập niên chiến tranh lại hứng chịu hạn hán và tiếp theo nạn đói đưa đến 260 ngàn tử vong. Thay đổi khí hậu, qua gia tăng nhiệt độ và chuyển đổi kiểu mưa, làm cho nhiều vùng không đủ mưa hoặc mưa bất thường, ảnh hưởng đến mùa màn và lượng nước cần thiết cho nhu cầu con người. Đối với một số quốc gia, khi hiệu năng nông nghiệp bị giảm sút và các nguy cơ khí hậu khác sẽ làm cho người dân từ nông thôn chuyển đến thành thị hay sang qua biên giới quốc gia khác. Điều này sẽ ảnh hưởng sâu sắc lên nền chính trị khắp nơi. Thay đổi khí hậu sẽ trắc nghiệm các hệ thống phản ứng hiện nay về nhân đạo và thiên tai, cái đang gặp nhiều thách thức quá sức đối với các xung đột hình như không chấm dứt tại Somalia, South Sudan, Syria và Yemen.

Thay đổi khí hậu sẽ làm cho quan hệ quốc tế càng thêm căng thẳng. Sông Mekong là một thí dụ. Trong sáu quốc gia sử dụng chung con sông này, Ủy hội Sông Mekong được thành lập để giải quyết các tranh chấp nhưng Trung Quốc không muốn trở thành một thành viên dù là quốc gia lớn nhất và xây các đập ảnh hưởng nặng nề nhất ở thượng nguồn đối với các quốc gia ở hạ nguồn. Sự tranh chấp về lượng chảy của con sông này trở nên tệ hơn khi mà hạn hán trong vùng trở nên thường xuyên hơn. Khi hạn hán xảy ra ảnh hưởng đến mùa màng, giá cả lúa mì hay ẩm thực có nguy cơ gia tăng toàn cầu. Tại Ai Cập, khi nạn lạm phát giá cả ẩm thực hàng năm tăng lên 19 phần trăm năm 2011, nó giúp gia tăng các cuộc biểu tình lật đổ tổng thống Hosni Mubarak.

Để đáp ứng với các điều kiện khí hậu thay đổi, chính phủ có thể ban hành vô số các chính sách có khả năng gây tranh cãi. Cấm không cho xuất cảng các nguyên liệu qúy, mua đất ở nước ngoài, bắt sử dụng nhiên liệu sinh học, làm luật bảo vệ rừng, và hàng ngàn sự chọn lựa khác sẽ tạo ra kẻ thắng người thua và gia tăng sự căng thẳng trong nội địa và quốc tế. Thay đổi khí hậu sẽ bao gồm chuỗi vấn đề khác nhau, từ vận chuyển, năng lượng, xây cất, nông nghiệp, và bao địa hạt khác, và các ảnh hưởng tổng hợp của nó lên thành phố, sản xuất ẩm thực, và cung cấp nước uống sẽ là những thử thách khủng khiếp cho địa cầu này. Busby cho rằng với vấn đề ở tầm lớn như thế này, nó cần sự phối hợp và hợp tác giữa Hoa Kỳ và Trung Quốc để cùng nhau giải quyết. Còn nếu cạnh tranh chống đối nhau toàn diện thì tất cả đều bị thiệt hại. Sự hợp tác giữa các thỏa thuận quốc tế, mạng lưới tổ chức và những người dốc tâm tìm ra các giải pháp cụ thể là một cơ hội tốt nhất để tránh một thiên tai thay đổi khí hậu khủng khiếp đối với nhân loại.

Vài kết luận

Sáu quan điểm nêu trên chỉ là tiêu biểu, không phải là tất cả. Bên trong mỗi trường phái của các nhãn quan này đều có những nhận định và kết luận khác nhau, một cách sâu sắc. Ngoài sáu quan điểm này còn bao nhiêu lý thuyết và ý thức hệ khác nhau, làm cho thế giới chúng ta đang sống vừa thật sự đa nguyên vừa vô cùng phức tạp.

Càng phức tạp hơn cho những ai muốn đi tìm sự thật. Sự thật nằm ở đâu? Trong sự tổng hợp các quan sát trình bày trên hay, đơn giản và rốt cuộc vẫn là, trong cặp mắt người nhìn?

Francis Fukuyama nhận xét khá tinh tế và sâu sắc về ảnh hưởng của chủ nghĩa bộ lạc đối với nền chính trị thế giới trong bài mới nhất của ông trên Foreign Affairs [9]. Bài này tóm lược các ý chính trong cuốn sách mới nhất của ông sắp được phát hành. Fukuyama kết luận: con người sẽ không bao giờ ngừng suy nghĩ về chính họ và xã hội của họ về mặt bản sắc; nhưng bản sắc của con người không phải là cứng ngắt mà cũng không phải được cấu tạo lúc sinh thành; bản sắc có thể được sử dụng để chia rẽ mà cũng có thể để đoàn kết; sau cùng nó có thể là phương thuốc cho nền chính trị dân túy của thời hiện tại.

Khi chủ nghĩa bộ lạc vẫn còn hiện hữu, thể hiện qua chính trị về bản sắc, như Chua và Fukuyama phân tích, thì chính trị quyền lực cũng sẽ còn đó, không đi đâu cả. Như thế, về mặt chính trị và bang giao quốc tế, quyền lực và quyền lợi sẽ luôn đóng vai trò quan trọng, như Kotkin và những nhà hiện thực nhận định. Chỉ khi nào con người trở nên thánh thiện, tôn trọng và đối xử nhau một cách nhân ái, tương kính và không phân biệt, và không sử dụng bạo lực với nhau, thì quan hệ giữa con người và trên bình diện quốc tế mới thay đổi sâu sắc. Những tranh chấp về chủng tộc, tôn giáo, văn minh, phái tính, hay ý thức hệ v.v… sẽ còn với con người một thời gian dài. Do đó trong hiện tại, có lẽ chỉ có chủ nghĩa cấp tiến và nền dân chủ cấp tiến mới có khả năng giải quyết được các bài toán nhức nhối của con người, như Deudney and Ikenberry biện luận. Nền tảng tư tưởng/lý thuyết của chủ nghĩa cấp tiến là mọi người phải được đối xử bình đẳng, phải có quyền tự do cá nhân, nhân phẩm/quyền không bị chà đạp vì phái tính hay vì thuộc một nhóm xã hội nào đó (particular social group) v.v… Nhưng chủ nghĩa cấp tiến chỉ có thể là giải pháp lâu dài và vững ổn nếu các nhà lãnh đạo chính trị trong các thập niên tới có thể hoạch định những chính sách vừa phát huy tối đa hiệu năng của cuộc cách mạng công nghệ tới, vừa tái phân phối hàng hóa và dịch vụ một cách tối ưu (optimal) cho toàn xã hội, đồng thời cũng phải quan tâm đúng mức đến chính sách nhân dụng, như Drum đã biện luận. Còn không thì Mác sẽ “hiện hồn” về, chờn vờn ám ảnh và báo động những xung đột lúc ngấm ngầm lúc bùng nổ trong nền kinh tế tư bản cực đoan khi một thiểu số nắm mọi quyền lực vật chất trong tay, và đa số thì vất vả không ngừng, như Varghese trình bày. Sau cùng, khi thế giới bị hâm nóng một cách vô trách nhiệm thì môi trường sống sẽ bị ảnh hưởng sâu sắc, như Busby đã nhắc nhở. Khi di dân/tị nạn - là nạn nhân của tranh chấp chính trị qua chủ nghĩa bộ lạc, hay là nạn nhân của thiên tai/môi trường sống - phải tìm cách lánh nạn ở tầm lớn, nhưng thế giới, nhất là các quốc gia dân chủ và phát triển, lại quảnh mặt làm ngơ, thì tuyên ngôn quốc tế nhân quyền chẳng còn giá trị gì cả ngoại trừ trên giấy tờ. Đó có thể là mốc điểm của sự suy thoái toàn diện của nền văn minh toàn cầu.

Những vấn đề này có liên hệ gì đến mỗi chúng ta? Có nhiều lắm chứ! Mỗi chúng ta, không phân biệt, bằng suy nghĩ và hành động thực tiễn, có thể góp phần làm cho chính mình, gia đình, xã hội, đất nước và thế giới, tốt hơn. Không cần làm những gì quá lớn, ngoài tầm tay. Nền văn minh nhân loại sẽ bị huỷ hoại nếu chúng ta chỉ biết sống cho chính mình và chỉ biết quan tâm trong cuộc đời mình mà không nghĩ đến người khác và các thế hệ về sau. Cho nên chỉ cần bắt đầu bằng sự tử tế, liêm chính và tinh thần trách nhiệm, thì một ngày nào đó những tinh thần và giá trị này sẽ loan tỏa sâu rộng và truyền lại cho các thế hệ mai sau. Cuối cùng chúng ta có quyền lạc quan nhưng không thể tự mãn khi các thách thức của nhân loại vô cùng lớn lao trong khi số người quan tâm và đóng góp vẫn còn là thiểu số.

          Best film of the year (so far): Paul Weitz's beautiful, brilliant, moving BEL CANTO      Cache   Translate Page      

What a surprise is BEL CANTO, the new movie directed by Paul Weitz (and which could hardly be farther away in subject, tone and skill from his first film, American Pie!), with a screenplay adapted by Anthony Weintraub and Weitz from the award-winning novel of the same name by Ann Patchett. Mr. Weitz, shown below, has now directed in so many different genres that he is can certainly not be pigeon-holed -- which is undoubted as he wants it. Still, I would in no way have expected to be this strongly engulfed by and then finally moved -- not to tears; at least, not right away -- to the kind of deep, profound sense of possibility, joy and then loss that the performing arts so rarely provide. (Several hours post-viewing those tears unexpectedly arrived; the movie sticks with me, even now, days after viewing it.)

When we finished the film, my spouse at once remarked how much it reminded him of Our Country's Good, that great play by Timberlake Wertenbaker that had a too-short Broadway run back in 1991. In Bel Canto, the humanizing force, rather than residing, as in the play, in the power of theater, is instead found in music, specifically opera. The result is the same: the bringing together of diverse people and ideas into the kind harmony that progressives so desire, and that those in power so often deliberately prevent.

What genre of a film is Bel Canto? Without giving away much of the wonderfully imagined and executed plot, the movie's a mash-up. Part love story(ies), thriller, social/political critique, art-about-art, terrorism (but by whom?) and lots more, the movie puts you in touch with characters who grow and change, finally becoming as memorable as any you're likely see this year (or for that matter last year or next).

Not having read the novel (which is probably better than the film because novels almost always are), I can only judge this movie. What Weitz and Weintraub especially excel at lies in their ability to create the illusion of time passing both artfully and believably so that everything we see here seems viable, given the circumstances and characters.

That sense of days and weeks passing is vital to the tale's credibility, and it is handled here as well as I've ever seen it. The film has been cast exquisitely, too. Though its lead actors -- Julianne Moore (above) as a world-famous opera singer (we hear Renée Fleming on the soundtrack doing the singing) and Ken Watanabe (at left on poster, top) as an uber-wealthy and successful businessman -- are maybe not the most memorable of the characters, Ms Moore smartly captures both this singer's entitlement and her humanity, while Watanabe's eastern reserve and inscrutability slowly, effectively crumble.

The film's most interesting character -- the likes of which movies so seldom bring to life this well -- belongs to the Japanese translator (beautifully played by Ryô Kase, shown above, center), fluent in several languages, who accompanies Watanabe and discovers so much new about himself during the "siege." Also in the fine international cast are Sebastian Koch (below) as a harried Red Cross worker and Christopher Lambert (in the penultimate photom, below) as a hostage who proves multi-talented.

The "terrorists" are almost equally memorable. There are quite a few of these, and each is brought to fine and specific life with a few smart brushstrokes by actors who make the most of every one of their moments. Especially strong are Tenoch Huerta (as the Commander) and Maria Mercedes Coray, shown at right in the photo at bottom (who plays the young female recruit named Carmen).

The film is full of little ironies, sometimes involving language and translation. One of the richest and funniest is what most unites the film's missing dictator with some of the terrorists in this Latin American country. Of course, it's a telenovela.

As it moves along, the movie takes on almost the quality of a long-hoped-for fantasy -- one into which, from it outset, we know that reality must finally intrude. Until then, a wondrous little society is created that may take a permanent place in your mind and heart. TrustMovies found Bel Canto the most beguiling, appealing and finally moving piece of cinema he's seen in a long while. No other film has made him think, feel and care this much about such a diverse set of characters living through such a singular event.

From Screen Media Films (by far the best movie I've yet seen from this particular distributor) and running just 102 minutes, Bel Canto opens this Friday, September 14, in New York City (at the Cinepolis Chelsea) and in Los Angeles (at Laemmle's Monica Film Center). Here in the Miami area, the film opens the following Friday, September 21, at the Bill Cosford Cinema and in the weeks to come will hit another 25 cities and theaters nationwide.

CAJAMARCA EN LA RUTA VALLEJO

SEGUNDA PARTE


Por LUIS ALBITRES MENDO



LARGO PERIPLO EN POS DE LA CASA DE VALLEJO

En Lima, Trujillo y Cajamarca se difundieron importantes asuntos inéditos sobre Vallejo y su obra poética. La agenda poética fue liderada por expertos, reconocidos por su calidad literaria y académica.

Lima mostró su excelencia vallejiana en los especialistas: Ricardo González Vigil, Marco Martos Carrera y Jorge Kishimoto. Trujillo no se quedó atrás y organizó varios certámenes celebratorios en torno a Vallejo con sus mejores representantes.

En Guadalupe y Chepén se les vio a sus autoridades y las danzas y poemas llenaron los ambientes de alegría y esperanza, pues el público se abarrotaba.

En Cajamarca podemos enfatizar la fuerza, luz y color de las danzas, las que atrajeron miradas y atención. En especial impactó, en espectadores y visitantes, el vigor de los danzantes, el ritmo de las coreografías, la simbología de la expresión corporal y el sugestivo atuendo de los guerreros del Inka con plumajes sombríos.

También en Cajabamba los niños fueron las estrellas con doble o triple mérito, pues además de sus declamaciones, cantos y danzas, protagonizaron un pasacalle de faroles, las cuales llenaron la noche de fastuosidad luminaria, encanto y fantasía.

El desfile cromático en movimiento duró un tiempo largo pero sumamente agradable. El refinamiento de sus creaciones mostró ribetes surrealistas apoyados por el ambiente nocturno. Felicitaciones a los maestros de esta bella ciudad cajamarquina.

 
ARTE, CULTURA Y EDUCACIÓN: REFINADOS IMPULSORES DE CAMBIOS

Todas las ciudades y pueblos visitados se consolidaron como escenarios a cual más interesantes por el entusiasmo y esfuerzo de cada uno de sus organizadores.

Todos lucieron un espíritu emprendedor, un magnífico deseo de ofrecer lo mejor de sus pueblos en cuanto a intelectuales participantes y organización.

Algo muy aleccionador, ya lo hemos mencionado, incluso algunos alcaldes presidieron las actuaciones culturales y acompañaron en el pasacalle (Guadalupe, Chepén y Quiruvilca). O se preocuparon de que alguien los represente (Cajamarca, Cajabamba, Santiago de Chuco y Calipuy).
 
Aunque lo ideal sería que las autoridades (alcaldes, gobernadores, etc.) tomen mayor protagonismo en el campo de la cultura, a fin de concederle su verdadero lugar al arte y la educación, en sus respectivos gobiernos.

El arte, la cultura y la educación, verdaderos ´pilares, auténticos motores del crecimiento y progreso de un pueblo. Refinados impulsores de cambio, adelanto y participación activa de los pobladores de un país.

De este modo se cumplió con el principal objetivo de este Encuentro Internacional, promover el mejor entendimiento de las obras de Vallejo y conocer la casa que lo vio nacer, albergó su niñez, adolescencia y primera juventud.

 
BONDADES DEL TURISMO

Que este largo periplo ha resultado también turístico, pues en buena hora! Por qué hacerle ascos al turismo, si gracias a él los pueblos crecen, progresan, se difunden sus tradicionales festejos y se hacen conocidos a nivel mundial?

Recordemos que hacer turismo, también es hacer cultura. De modo que no hay que soslayar el turismo, la manera más agradable de socializar, conocer gente y lugares y aprender con rapidez.
 
Y si los organizadores recomendaron visitar lugares turísticos para motivar y alentar el evento internacional de CAPULÍ en Miami-Florida-USA, por qué no, con mayor razón, para lo nuestro? Yo no veo por qué lo que sugieren para Miami (“Visitas a lugares de atracción turística”), no lo aplican aquí en nuestra Patria?

Precisamente, en medio del patio de la casa de Vallejo, al lado del árbol de capulí, las personas en general y los poetas y escritores en particular, se sienten ungidos por un hálito bienhechor, rodeados de una atmósfera ascética, cuasi mística, al recordar que allí nació el gran César Abraham.

Por qué no puede ser un lugar privilegiado, un punto de peregrinación poética que cuente con todas las comodidades para un turismo internacional  donde Santiago de Chuco comparta su magnetismo cultural con los atractivos ecológicos de las aguas termales y la ubérrima campiña de Cachicadán, que está tan cerca y es ciudad gemela, complementaria de Santiago?

Tener en cuenta un día más en cada ciudad importante es indispensable, a fin de disponer de tiempo suficiente para disfrutar lugares turísticos atractivos.

Esto da pie para sugerir: Cuando le toque a Trujillo, indefectiblemente, deberá disponer de un día más, exclusivamente para el turismo. Chan Chan, la ciudad de barro más grande del mundo y la Huaca de la Luna, tan famosas y publicitadas, visitarlas constituye una tentación difícil de esquivar, además de darse una vuelta por Huanchaco y probar su riquísima gastronomía marina.

En Cajamarca los visitantes perdieron la oportunidad de disfrutar de sus bondades ya descritas anteriormente.

Cajabamba con gran inteligencia y oportunidad incluyó en su programa la visita al CAPULÍ DE BOLÍVAR, idílico lugar que siendo cajamarquino no conocía. Todos muy contentos hasta se dieron con la sorpresa de atender las sabias reminiscencias históricas al respecto de los profesores Rodríguez y Monzón y saborear algunas frutas típicas de estos feraces parajes.

En Cajabamba también existe el Museo YACHAYHUASIi (Jr. Bolognesi N° 1020) que dirige el profesor Miguel Rodríguez Roncal. Pocos lo visitamos por falta de tiempo y disponibilidad. Nuestras congratulaciones para el director por su acucioso esfuerzo, dedicación y amor a lo nuestro.

Ni qué hablar de Huamachuco! La ciudad puede sentirse muy orgullosa de contar a pocos kilómetros con los fabulosos restos arqueológicos de MARKAHUAMACHUCO. Una extensa y sólida ciudad lítica, con murallas, senderos y recintos, cuya importancia es similar a MACHUPICCHU.

Lo único que hace falta es mayor difusión y que los mismos huamachuquinos luchen para elevar este maravilloso lugar al sitial que se merece.

Necesita una buena pista de acceso, un bien montado museo de sitio, tal vez hasta un restaurante y hotel cercano, libros y folletos de información, agencias turísticas en la ciudad, etc. Toda la parafernalia turística del Siglo XXI.

Hay que aprender de Cusco, que ya parece un país aparte por el movimiento y nivel turístico alcanzados.

En ese sentido, Chachapoyas ya levantó vuelo con su ciclópea Kúelap, su teleférico y la espectacular catarata de Gocta. ¡Felicitaciones!

Santiago de Chuco ofertó este año la visita al Santuario Nacional de Calipuy, el reino de la Puya Raimondi, que por su importancia ha merecido comentario aparte. No obstante, faltó visitar los famosos baños termales de Cachicadán.

 
EL PROTAGONISMO DE LOS NIÑOS

Los niños, alumnos de escuelas y colegios, hasta de iniciales, con sus talentos y portentosas habilidades, en todas las poblaciones, fueron los protagonistas de lujo, ya sea como declamadores, cantantes, danzantes o bailarines.
 
En todas partes los niños recitaban poemas de Vallejo. De ese modo profundizan sus conocimientos sobre este importantísimo vate peruano y universal.

Hay algo sin embargo que debemos sugerir a los maestros: Seleccionar poemas accesibles a la tierna experiencia de los niños. Es muy difícil que los pequeños penetren en los abstrusos mensajes de algunos. Por lo tanto, estimados maestros, a escoger, para la declamación, poemas asequibles a sus breves años.

Los niños, en todas las poblaciones visitadas, sin excepción, lucieron espléndidas cualidades entre vivacidad, inteligencia y picardía.

La mística de la peruanidad está en estos jóvenes valores, estos niños, con cuyos talentos ya contamos y sus entusiasmos, entrega y generosidad constituye un émulo para americanos andinos y visitantes en general.

 
ENARBOLANDO LA ALEGRÍA

En Cajabamba descollaron los ya clásicos desfiles de antorchas, esplendorosas y exquisitas, en sus distintas temáticas.

Iluminaban con resplandores de distintos colores y centelleos enarbolando la alegría como un canto a la vida en plena noche de fiesta.

La fanfarria y desenfado juveniles incendiaron los corazones de los visitantes encandilando hasta el final el onírico telón de fondo que teníamos ante los ojos.

Antes habíamos disfrutado de un ágape típico, intercalado por canciones, danzas y números poéticos.

 
RETAMAS AMARILLAS, SÍMBOLO DE BIENVENIDA

Huamachuco marcó la diferencia, entronizando el protagonismo de las RONDAS CAMPESINAS, las cuales expusieron, en plena Plaza de Armas, sus discursos, bailes, trajes típicos e incluso teatralizaron los rituales justicieros que utilizan para contrarrestar y sancionar a delincuentes, sacavuelteros y ladronzuelos. Drama cómico que introdujo hilaridad y jocosidad
.
Finalizaron su performance obsequiándonos ramilletes de peruanísimas flores amarillas, las bellas retamas, a cada uno de los visitantes, como símbolo de bienvenida. El baile con ellos y recibir sus regalos fue algo fuera de serie ya que habían recorrido kilómetros para llegar justo a tiempo para recibir ellos por primera vez a la delegación de escritores visitantes.

RONDAS CAMPESISNAS, al observarlos con detenimiento, se trataba de personas mayores con alma de niños.

También se hizo presente, en pleno, el consejo directivo de la Asociación Cultural Huamachuquina “ESCRITORES UNIDOS-PERÚ”, ofrendándonos un generoso almuerzo típico de Huamachuco.

Confraternizaron con nosotros, Orlando Delgado Benites, quien preside la asociación, Francisco Jara Sancho, Mario Armando Vera Ríos, Jesús Fernández Pizán, Reynaldo Sandoval Aguirre, junto a Luis Flores Prado, por supuesto, coordinador de esta magnífica participación de HUAMACHUCO EN LA RUTA VALLEJO.

 
UNA PÁGINA LUMINOSA EN SU HISTORIA

Quiruvilca, con su alcalde poeta y escritor: Wálter Díaz Ramos, al realizar un recibimiento tan generoso, dada la hora, no los olvidaremos jamás.

Empezaron por ofrendarnos un opíparo desayuno servido en una larga y elegante mesa de mantel largo, preparada especialmente en medio de un impresionante auditorio, un amplio Salón de Actos.

Fuimos atendidos gentilmente por guapas anfitrionas del Municipio quienes nos brindaron un banquete con todos los elementos agradables de su gastronomía: Caldo de gallina, huevos pasados, canchita de maíz tostado, chicharrones, quesos, café, el que deseaba café con leche, y de postre, generosas tajadas de bizcochuelos.

Luego de los agradecimientos del caso, nos llevaron a la Plaza principal de Quiruvilca donde se desarrolló una larga actuación de los niños que causó grata impresión. Llamó la atención el candoroso desenvolvimiento y el júbilo retratado en sus rostros al pedir autógrafos a cual más.

Quiruvilca escribió una página luminosa en su historia y renovó nuestros votos de amistad y solidaridad con los niños, los mineros, los obreros y los seres humanos en general. La despedida de tanto niño fue difícil por lo emotivo del caso y lo agradecidos que estábamos con la ciudad y su alcalde. Gratitud para Quiruvilca

 
SANTIAGO DE CHUCO, CIUDAD MAGNÉTICA

Santiago de Chuco, ciudad magnética, cuna de Vallejo, este 2018 brilló como siempre, ilusionada y acogedora, luciendo, igual que otras ciudades que la antecedieron en el periplo vallejiano, la esplendorosa espontaneidad de los niños quienes declamaron, bailaron e interpretaron diferentes artes como poesía, música, pintura en un concurso y en las danzas con donaire, pulcritud, sentido viril en los pallos y estilo femenino en las kiyayas.

La esencia de estos programas literario-turísticos está en la acendrada voluntad de difundir la producción literaria de Vallejo.

Y no hay que hacerle ascos al aspecto turístico de estos Encuentros ya que el turismo es un método muy rápido de incorporar información y enriquecer nuestra sabiduría integral: Gente nueva, costumbres exóticas, comidas novedosas y una cantidad inapreciable de nuevos conocimientos.
 
Quién puede contradecir que esto no es también, de algún modo, una proyección cultural del ser humano.

Este CAPULÍ 2018 ha tendido un puente hacia destinos inusuales pero de intensa grandiosidad en el espacio-tiempo breve de que gozamos, un día para cada ciudad. Eso es lo que parece tendrá que mejorar. Un ejemplo, Trujillo hace rato necesita disponer de un día más, para pasearse por CHAN CHAN en la mañana, almorzar en HUANCHACO y admirar la HUACA DE L,A LUNA por la tarde, antes de tomar rumbo a otro destino. Todo financiado por cada escritor visitante.

En Santiago de Chuco tuvimos la grata sorpresa de saludarnos con un amplio abrazo con el connotado escritor y periodista ancashino Olimpio Cotillo Caballero quien visitó la Casa de Vallejo por primera vez. Nos obsequió valiosos libros que sabremos aquilatar. Gracias entrañable amigo.

 
NUESTRO PRIMER DÍA EN SANTIAGO

El picante de cuy que degustamos en la Casa donde nacieron los Sánchez Lihón, y que todos los años lo financia Milton Jaime, fue una verdadera fiesta para las papilas gustativas. Este suculento potaje acompañado por el infaltable rocoto molido que iban repartiendo, como anfitriones, los propios Sánchez Lihón, hizo de esta cena –la hora del almuerzo hace rato había pasado por el retardo de los viajes- un placer gastronómico inolvidable.

Para asentar este delicioso estofado de cuy, peruanísimo manjar, no hay nada mejor que la chicha de jora, tan recomendada por Pérez Albela, por su riqueza nutritiva, y que estuvo incomparable.

Palmas para la familia oferente, los Sánchez Lihón y felicitaciones por las muestras artísticas que nos acompañaban colgadas de las paredes de sala y comedor. Cuadros de fotografías (Milton Jaime) y pinturas al óleo (Juvenal).

Es menester también agradecer a los organizadores de CAPULÍ EN SANTIAGO DE CHUCO que se encargaron de ofrendarnos el almuerzo en nuestro segundo día en la ciudad.

Esta vez los coordinadores del evento en Santiago de Chuco nos acogieron en el RESTAURANT-PEÑA SANTUARIO que ya varios años viene abriendo sus puertas para los visitantes de cada CAPULÍ. Nos invitaron un abundante almuerzo con sabrosos platos típicos de la región: Un apetitoso ají de huevo como entrada y de segundo, el famoso potaje “Jetón”, una substanciosa variante  del conocido shambar ( lechón, trigo, menestras y legumbres varias). Sobre los manteles de las mesas sirvieron copiosa canchita de trigo tostado y papitas silvestres sancochadas que se aderezaban con rocoto hecho en base a chiche. Todos bebimos varios vasos de chicha morada. Muy agradable todo.

Y sirvió para demostrar lo que produce la región. Conmovió la generosidad de estas nobles personas que con suma amabilidad agasajaron a los poetas visitantes.

 
QUÉ EXPERIENCIA, LA DE CALIPUY

El Santuario Nacional de Calipuy relumbra en nuestra experiencia como una larga caminata en una planicie interminable orillada por colinas, quebradas y cerros que se divisaban apenas.

El aire es puro y la vista se pierde en lontananza. Nuestras almas ampliaron sus horizontes a la vista de parajes tan fértiles para el ichu que aquí ha crecido desmesuradamente. Jamás habíamos observado un ichu de tal magnitud y vigor.

Una meseta extensa con bofedales de ichu que normalmente crece en jalcas y punas y se le conoce como paja brava por pequeña, dura y punzante, aquí crece libre en dimensiones increíbles y suaviza sus ramas a tal punto que viene al vuelo la reflexión: el carácter y las características de la personalidad de un ser depende muchísimo del ambiente donde vive y crece. Qué importante dato para psicólogos y pedagogos, pues lo mismo sucede con plantas, animales y personas.

A lo lejos se avizoran algunas puyas de Raimondi, que, gracias a nuestro ardiente deseo y férrea voluntad encontramos en nuestro camino, orientados por los voluntariosos y eficientes guías que se nos asignó.

Las fotos no se hicieron esperar para el recuerdo y la historia personal de cada uno.

 
ANTE VISTA TAN SUPREMA

Ante vista tan suprema se ensancharon nuestros pensamientos, el aire era tan puro y un tanto enrarecido pero las ganas de ver el río, la catarata, rocas casi esculpidas por el viento y la lluvia, etc. apremió nuestra caminata.

No faltaron las fatigas, los descansos y hasta bebimos aguas purísimas y heladitas del arroyuelo. Calmaron nuestra sed frente al inclemente sol. El agua corría libre y barboteaba en medio de la inmensa explanada, entre hondonadas y cañadas.

El tiempo nos jugó una mala pasada. Raudas pasaron las horas y ya no podríamos avanzar más. Se truncaron nuestras ansias de observar tantas maravillas que ahí existen.

Estuvimos junto a algunas puyas Raimondi y nos tomamos fotos, pero no llegamos a observar los guanacos de la Reserva Nacional y otras especies de fauna como vizcachas, aves, etc.
 
Nuestro tiempo era limitado y la extensión del Santuario y la Reserva, incalculable.

 
FRANCA Y JUBILOSA JOVIALIDAD

En esta interesante excursión hay algo digno de resaltar. El padre de Mara, don Juan García Huatay y el Tayta Shanti, de 90 y 87 años respectivamente, fueron los más entusiastas andarines, que sin queja alguna y contagiando jubilosa jovialidad animaron constantemente a los demás a continuar el trayecto en pos de nuestros caros anhelos, disfrutar todo lo que Santuario y Reserva ofrecían, posar junto a las célebres plantas, las Puyas de Raimondi, que acá guardan celosamente su auténtico nombre original: CAHUAS.

En este escenario natural la tranquilidad que nos envuelve fluye y nos trae paz. Ahí está la magia, en la simplicidad de este paisaje. Obnuvilados por esa sensación de inmensidad nuestra permanente ansiedad de infinito se avivó intensamente en nuestros corazones.

Todos superaron incertidumbres y cansancios. La aventura, el gozo de contemplar y la curiosidad pudieron más.

 
OPORTUNA PASCANA EN MEDIO DE NUESTRO TRAYECTO

Fue muy oportuna la pascana en medio de nuestro trayecto, con las suculentas presas de cuy frito, muy bien preparadas para nuestro gusto, harta canchita de maíz y suficiente chicha morada para la sed, fortalecieron nuestros cuerpos para continuar.

Gracias a todos los que tuvieron que ver con esta gratísima y necesaria sorpresa. Nadie la esperaba. Realmente nuestra gente es increíblemente generosa. Este ágape andino, tan nutritivo y sabroso, parece que ha sido ofrecido por las comunidades de la zona. A ellos nuestra gratitud.

En el propio Calipuy nos esperaba mayor asombro y bonhomía de su gente. Calipuy resultó un descubrimiento insospechado donde hallamos la generosidad en su estado puro, con unas dulces matronas que primero ya nos habían servido un sabroso desayuno que calentó nuestros cuerpos y almas.

Luego, al retornar de la alegre excursión al Santuario nos sirvieron un suculento almuerzo en base al cuy, potaje bandera de todo el Ande Peruano que nos dio fuerza y vigor para afrontar el ardoroso y placentero baile subsiguiente, al cual nos invitaron y compartieron espontáneamente.

Esta magnífica vivencia en Calipuy rivalizó de igual a igual con todos esos maravillosos días experimentados en las otras ciudades ya visitadas.

 
ONÍRICO AMBIENTE NOCTURNO: EL FESTIVAL TRILCE

El Festival Trilce, que ya tiene muchos años de éxito garantizado en Santiago de Chuco, incorpora con gran jolgorio música, poesía y baile, inflamando de un espíritu romántico las noches frías de la plaza abierta, donde siempre es un atrayente espectáculo.
 
El público se agolpó para aplaudir a un sinnúmero de artistas invitados: Doly Príncipe y su grupo, acompañada también por el músico y cantante cajamarquino Víctor Angulo Llerena, Diana Chávez Llamoga y otros.

Algunos artistas santiaguinos como el dúo de Luis Ciudad y Artidoro Deza Vásquez se animaron a cantar en su tierra. Fueron muy aplaudidos.

Gran sorpresa dio Danilo con su “CANTO DEL ALMA. Canciones del Pueblo Chuco”, al estrenar su segundo CD esa noche en el festival, como compositor nada menos que de letra y música, con canciones variadas entre huaynos, pallos, sanjuanitos, yaravíes, mulizas, pasacalles y hasta rancheras.
 
Dulce y cristalina voz de Doly Príncipe con magistral acompañamiento de  la guitarra de Julio Humala. Intervienen también con sus voces e instrumentos artistas de la región. Extasiadas melodías que hacen de la nostalgia, melancolía y la añoranza poemas ya románticos ya sentimentales, sin perder jamás la cadencia andina que las fortalece y anima.

Toda una revelación. Su vena de compositor es innegable, ya que le viene de su padre quien fue director de su propia orquesta. Por eso todos sus hijos heredaron la pasión por la música.

Jornada memorable para Danilo quien recibió comentarios elogiosos por sus dos CD que esa noche se vendieron como pan caliente. Por su calidad poética y música atractiva fueron ovacionadas.
 
Felicitaciones para los dos hermanos, Danilo y Jaime Sánchez Lihón, quien es el responsable de la producción general.

En esas circunstancias, sentimos el impulso de bailar de contento, tal como lo hicimos la noche anterior en la clásica fogata del Centro Viejo, donde estudió César Abraham. El entusiasmo y jovialidad de la directora nos contagió a todos.

 
ENCENDIÓ FULGORES LA NOCHE

Con el inicio de los cantos y la música, instantáneamente surgió el baile y la noche encendió fulgores de alegría transmitiendo camaradería a todos los presentes.
 
Y en algún momento empezaron a repartir sabrosas rebanadas de bizcocho, las famosas tajadas y café humeante a todos los asistentes, calentando la estancia. Se le agradece a la escritora Maura Sánchez Benítez, santiaguina residente en Andorra, quien con generosidad, desde hace muchos años, financia este apropiado y deleitable convite.

Los escritores sintieron acortar las distancias que separan fronteras, lenguas, razas, y nació la hermosa bandera del entendimiento con manifestaciones de afecto.

El baile no solo beneficia al cuerpo, también es motivo de fruición y al disfrutar las melodías y ritmos, es el alma, al fin y al cabo, el que, en esa situación y frente a la noche cósmica, luna y estrellas que atestiguan, goza el aroma del amor universal.

 
EL JOLGORIO EMPEZÓ A RESPLANDECER

A pesar de cierta fatiga, la gratificante ilusión de haber gozado de este periplo por tantas ciudades, detentaba, en muchos detalles, su propia recompensa.

Un pasacalle jubilante aunque sosegado y estremecido por los sueños postergados o mejor dicho, aún no completados. Calles con sombras detenidas y luces titilantes, fueron testigos mudos de esta comitiva extraña que lanzaba al viento sus inquietudes poéticas con rasgos de serenata.

Cuando el séquito nocturno finalizaba frente al teatro, agotados, la mayoría optó por retirarse a sus hoteles, sin aceptar la generosa invitación, que en un impromptus afortunado, en un rapto de fantasiosa voluntad, dictado por las musas Poesía y Música, realizó Milton Jaime para alargar la noche en su casa, la ya conocida Casa de la Alegría y la Hermandad, donde el primer día en Santiago nos agasajó con una cena exquisita y en años anteriores se realizaban tertulias con fogata.

El objetivo era claro, alargar el contento. Pocos aceptamos el reto. En unos minutos ya estábamos instalados en la sala de su casa recibiendo las finas atenciones de sus hermanos Rosita y Juvenal quienes pusieron sobre la mesa del centro diversas exquisiteces, retirándose luego discretamente a sus habitaciones.

Dubitativos al principio, más allá de la medianoche, después de cierta expectativa se dio inicio a una auténtica peña.

Los pocos que resistimos ansiábamos celebrar. En un rincón de la sala la batería nos miraba ansiosa de iniciar la fiesta junto al acordeón del Canifo, quien ya había llegado. La guitarra de Milton Jaime hacía guiños de confidencia y complicidad.

Noche digna de poetas, Milton Jaime, recordando a su padre seguramente, en un arranque de jolgorio instintivo y con la música clavada en el alma se convirtió en el adalid de esta inolvidable jornada.
 
Quizás la hora o la noche, el vino o la poesía y la alegre camaradería fueron los que invitaron a celebrar. Fue un despertar, una iluminación.

No faltaron los tragos, el vino, los cafés, el pan, las rosquitas y el queso. Todo a buena disposición.
 
El jolgorio a todas luces empezó a resplandecer, recién a esa hora, cuando 4 damas, quienes podían haber disfrutado tanto como nosotros, nos abandonaron poco antes acuciadas por el sueño y el cansancio, extenuadas a tal punto que dejaron de lado la ocasión del júbilo imprevisto.

Quedaron con nosotros dos damas, una cajamarquina y otra de raíces santiaguinas. Los varones llegábamos a un escaso número de 7, de los cuales 3 proveníamos de Cajamarca, 2 de Santiago, uno de Huacho y otro del hermano país de México.

 
CANTARES, FRENESÍ Y ECLOSIÓN

Sin darnos cuenta, la música se apoderó de nosotros, inoculando resabios de gozo. Un júbilo especial al recibir al amanecer. Habíamos espantado al cansancio.

El frenesí y la eclosión arribaron en momentos en que todos cantábamos, aún tocando algún instrumento, todos bailaban, saltando de contento, abrazados y felices.

Acudieron a la memoria canciones de los años 60, de los años 70, etc. Las voces que más resaltaban eran las de Milton Jaime y de Freddy Pajuelo Atis. Llegaron a conformar un dúo sensacional. Animaron la noche derrochando solvencia artística.

Baladas, boleros cumbias, valses, polkas, y hasta huaynos. De todo se escuchó esa noche. Solo faltó una salerosa marinera.

Cuando de dicha y diversión se trata las horas pasan volando. Habría que ver cómo se gozó al cantar melodías tan entrañables como las nuestras.

Dicen que cantar es una de las tantas funciones de la poesía. Pues aquí se cumplieron con creces dicha prerrogativa. Realmente placenteras fueron estas deliciosas horas de música.

Cuando llegó el adiós y salimos satisfechos y contentos, los luceros ya se habían ocultado para dar paso a la alborada.

Se detuvieron las bromas y las risas desmesuradas y sobrevino la hora del breve descanso no sin antes acompañar al Canifo a su casa.

Ya en nuestro hospedaje sobrevino una paz consustanciada con la obscuridad que antecede a la aurora.


EXULTANTE LENGUAJE DE LA POESÍA

Como final de fiesta, después de misa y antes de la despedida, con cámaras en mano, libres, espontáneos hasta el arrebato, las fotos llovían y también los comentarios, los piropos y las risas.

Fue el retrato perfecto del buen ánimo. El exultante lenguaje de poetas ebrios de felicidad. De algún modo quisieron expresar la bonhomía que habitaba en su interior.

Exaltados por un raro delirio poético, de alborozo y deliquios que dictan los apasionamientos, nacidos de vivencias fuera de lo común.

Lenguaje de la expansión, del que asume el viaje por primera vez, la novedad y el canto que representa el evento CAPULÍ como algo jubiloso y que llegaba a su fin.

Para alguien que dispone de una sensibilidad tan copiosa y una alegría interior tan apabullante se erigió como el auténtico espectáculo poético por antonomasia, esa mañana soleada de gloria para todos.

El haber gozado de este singular viaje, a todas luces se reflejaba en los rostros.

 
CONTAGIANDO SU ELÁN VITAL

Derroche de flashes y aplausos mientras los escritores visitantes recibían un documento, con los rayos de sol en la cara, en la amplitud de la plaza principal de Santiago de Chuco.

Contemplé las expresiones de poetas presentes. Se les vio fascinados, dejando escapar su niño interior con una extraordinaria espontaneidad y con ello, sin imaginárselo, transmitieron a todos su elán vital.

En un ambiente normal, qué difícil es mostrar a cada uno su niño feliz. No es el caso de estos Encuentros de CAPULÍ donde llega un momento clave de calidez y camaradería, a pesar de desacuerdos o discrepancias menores.

 
COMPAÑEROS DE VIAJE EN ESTA TRAVESÍA 2018

Cientos de peruanos disfrutamos de este Circuito Cultural, unos viajando y otros asistiendo en sus propias ciudades.

Compañeros de viaje de esta travesía del CAPULÍ 2018, que transcurrió junto a fraternos escritores venidos de países hermanos como ECUADOR ( Martha Yolanda Garcés Aguilar, Adolfo Parra Moreno, Eduardo Vega Aguilar, Santos Eugenio Miranda Rojas y María), COLOMBIA ( Luz Elena Sepúlveda), CHILE ( Cecil Scott y Alfred Assis), ARGENTINA ( María Amelia Dinova Castro y Rubén Lettieri), URUGUAY (Enrique González ), BRASIL ( Clarice Panitz y María ), REPÚBLICA DOMINICANA ( Oscar René Benitez), MÉXICO ( César Cedillo Méndez), y ESTADOS UNIDOS ( Douglas y Terri Weatherford, y varios peruanos que viajaron: Desde Nueva York, Rina Soldevilla y Lucho Barrios Jr. Desde California, Carlos González. Desde Pensylvannia, Milton Jaime. Desde Georgia, Rocío Sánchez Lihón). Desde Utah, Mara García). Y varios más que probablemente estoy olvidando.

Una vez más CAPULÍ se consolidó como un referente cultural de prestigio internacional en nuestro país, tal como el Festival de ECOPOESÍA de Tumbes, vayan nuestras felicitaciones a Félix Hugo Noblecilla y a Wilma Worchers por los éxitos cosechados este año;  los Festivales Internacionales que organizan los escritores en Bambamarca, Chota y San Miguel (CAJAMARCA- CASA DEL POETA PERUANO), en Tacabamba, organizado por el cajamarquino Javier Villegas (LA POESÍA SE ELEVA; en Huacho, liderados por Julio Solórzano Murga y los cajamarquinos Germán Coronado y Lidia Vásquez Ruiz; los festivales internacionales organizados por el GREMIO DE ESCRITORES; los Encuentros Internacionales de APLIJ, se acerca el de CAJAMARCA; en Huaraz, acaba de llevarse a cabo un magnífico Encuentro Nacional organizado por AEPA. Sus triunfos se deben a la esforzada y permanente coordinación y dinamismo de Filomeno Zubieta, María del Pilar Márquez Cárdenas, Rodrigo Solórzano, Alex Milla, Julio Quispe y otras personas amantes del arte, la literatura y la educación de los niños como Nalo Alvarado Balarezo y Roberto Aldave Palacios que constituyen columnas sólidas de esta institución cuando se trata de avanzar, difundir y darle brillo a su tierra, la espléndida CHIQUIÁN-BOLOGNESI-ANCASH. En La Merced, año tras año, Gotardo Cervantes Mendívil viene organizando con gran despliegue nacional e internacional sus estupendos festivales culturales denominados con mucha razón EL AUTOR Y SUS LECTORES. Faltaría mencionar todo lo que realizan en ciudades como Arequipa, Cusco, Puno, Tacna, Abancay, Tarma, Huancayo, Ayacucho y ciudades de la Selva Peruana.  

No podemos dejar de mencionar, en esta lista de elogios y congratulaciones, a Carlos Garrido Chalén, quien con su UHE, viene haciendo resonar el nombre de PERÚ en diversos países, como Puerto Rico, USA (Orlando-Florida), España (Madrid), y pronto estarán reuniéndose en Ecuador (Manta).  En esa línea está también Beatríz Moreno de Rovegno con su TODAS LAS SANGRES, con eventos en países de América Andina (Ecuador y Argentina), España (Granada), Estados Unidos (Nueva York), Italia y Grecia. CAPULÍ viene incursionando también en el área internacional desde hace varios años: España, Francia, Inglaterra y Estados Unidos.
