          The first rays of spring are starting to warm the housing market with sales volumes up slightly and prices mostly steady      Cache   Translate Page      

The outlook is slowly improving for the residential property market with the Real Estate Institute of New Zealand's latest figures showing a lift in sales volumes compared to a year ago and prices remaining steady.

The REINZ recorded 6216 sales throughout the country in August, up 3.1% compared to August last year, while the national median selling price was $549,000, almost unchanged from the $550,000 median in July but up 3.6% compared to a year ago.

The national median price has remained between $549,000 and $560,000 since March.

In Auckland sales volumes were almost flat, with 1792 sales recorded in August, little changed from the 1766 in July and down only slightly from the 1837 recorded in August last year.

Auckland's median price was $852,000, up from $830,000 In July but little changed from where it was in August last year ($840,000) and August 2016 ($854,000).

There has been very little movement in Auckland's median price for the last two years and the latest figures suggest prices there are continuing on a reasonably stable path.

Sales also remained stable in the Wellington Region where 621 properties were sold in August compared to 625 in August last year, while the median price increased sharply to $590,000 compared to $550,000 in July and $506,500 in August last year.

In Canterbury there was a jump in sales to 852 in August compared to 790 in August last year, while the median price was $425,000.

Price figures for Canterbury suggest very little overall price movement for the last two to three years.

"Above average temperatures for New Zealand in the final month of winter has had a positive impact on the real estate industry, with prices increasing in 14 out of 16 regions across the country," REINZ chief executive Bindi Norwell said.

See the interactive charts below for price and sales volumes movements in all regions.

          Fonterra holds milk price forecast at $6.75; forecasts earnings per share of 25c-35c this year; to review investments including Beingmate; full year loss of $196 million reported      Cache   Translate Page      

By David Hargreaves

Fonterra's putting various aspects of its business - including the ill-starred investment in China's Beingmate Baby and Child Food Co - up for review after reporting an after-tax loss of $196 million for the financial year to July.

For the year ahead the dairy co-operative is sticking with its farmgate milk price forecast of $6.75 per kilogram of milk solids (which was reduced from $7 last month), while it is forecasting earnings per share for the financial year ahead of 25c-35c.

The final milk price in the year just finished was $6.69, which with a dividend of 10c (which has already been paid at the half-year mark), gives a return of $6.79.

Fonterra says it will re-evaluate all investments, major assets and partnerships to ensure they still meet the Co-operative’s needs today.

"This will involve a thorough analysis of whether they directly support the strategy, are hitting their target return on capital and whether it can scale them up and grow more value over the next two-three years.

"This will start with a strategic review of the Co-operative’s investment in Beingmate."

Last month Fonterra made a late cut to the milk price for the just finished season and slashed the dividend forecast.

Then a few days later the co-operative said it was putting the search for a new CEO on ice, and was appointing long-time Fonterra staffer Miles Hurrell as interim CEO. While the initial appointment of Hurrell described him as 'interim' CEO, all the materials released by Fonterra on Thursday, including the annual review, refer to him simply as 'CEO'. 

Theo Spierings, who stood down as CEO during the year, attracted a reasonable level of controversy regarding his salary. His total remuneration generated in 2017 was given as $8.3 million. This included short and long term incentives that would not have been paid in the 2017 financial year.

For the 2018 financial year, the annual review gives Spierings' fixed salary as just under $2.463 million (same as previous year), with 'benefits' of $103,275 (down from $242,340). Interestingly, in a year in which the business he was running lost $196 million, Spierings was granted $979,702 in 'short term incentive' payments (down from $1,182,144).

In what is much fuller disclosure of the CEO's salary this year, Fonterra says: "The STI value of the CEO’s remuneration is set at 60% of fixed remuneration if all targets are achieved. For the 2018 Financial year, the CEO realised a total STI payment of $979,702 ($1,182,144 in 2017 Financial Year). This is against a target of $1,477,680. The board has approved this STI outcome and payment will be made in October 2018."

There was no long term incentive earnings achieved in the past year.

All this means in terms of earnings, Spierings generated just under $3.546 million in the 2018 year. There's no mention of termination benefits, which would presumably be paid in the next financial year.

Monaghan has only been in the hot seat as chairman since late July, replacing John Wilson, who stood down after a health scare but whose suitability to stay in the job had been questioned after the numerous Fonterra misadventures over particularly the past 12 months.

Monaghan says at $6.75 per kgMS the forecast Farmgate Milk Price for the 2018/19 season is the third consecutive year of strong milk prices.

"That’s good for farmers and for rural economies where farmers spend 46 cents of every dollar they earn."

One of the co-operative's main priorities for the coming year is "ensuring more accurate forecasting"

Fonterra says the business "will be run on more realistic forecasts" with a clear line of sight on potential opportunities as well as the risks. It will also be clear on its assumptions, so farmers and unitholders know exactly where they stand and can make the decisions that are right for them and their businesses.

In terms of the detail of the financial performance in the past year, the net loss after tax was $196 million (compared with a profit of $745 million last year), while "normalised" earnings before interest and tax were $902 million, down 22%, the co-operative’s gearing ratio blipped up sharply from 44.3% last year to 48.4% and return on capital was 6.3%, down from 8.3%.

Fonterra's recent trim to the milk price payout for the year gone was in order to shore up the balance sheet.

CEO Miles Hurrell says Fonterra's business performance must improve.

“There’s no two ways about it, these results don’t meet the standards we need to live up to. In FY18, we did not meet the promises we made to farmers and unitholders,” says Mr Hurrell.

“At our interim results, we expected our performance to be weighted to the second half of the year. We needed to deliver an outstanding third and fourth quarter, after an extremely strong second quarter for sales and earnings – but that didn’t happen.”

Hurrell says that in addition to the previously reported $232 million payment to Danone relating to the arbitration, and $439 million write down on Fonterra’s Beingmate investment, there were four main reasons for the Co-operative’s poor earnings performance.

“First, forecasting is never easy but ours proved to be too optimistic.

"Second, butter prices didn’t come down as we anticipated, which impacted our sales volumes and margins.

"Third, the increase in the forecast Farmgate Milk Price late in the season, while good for farmers, put pressure on our margins.

"And fourth, operating expenses were up in some parts of the business and, while this was planned, it was also based on delivering higher earnings than we achieved. 

“Even allowing for the payment to Danone and the write down on Beingmate, which collectively account for 3.2% of the increase in the gearing ratio, our performance is still down on last year.”

Monaghan says Fonterra is being clear with farmers and unitholders on what it will take for the co-operative to achieve the forecast earnings guidance.

“For the first time we are sharing some business unit specific forecasts. Among others, these see the Ingredients and Consumer and Foodservice businesses achieving an EBIT of between $850 million and $950 million, and between $540 million and $590 million, respectively.”

“FY19 is about lifting the performance of our co-operative.

“We are taking a close look at the Co-operative’s current portfolio and direction to see where change is needed to do things faster, reduce costs and deliver higher returns on our capital investments.

“This includes an assessment of all of the Co-operative’s investments, major assets and partnerships against our strategy and target return on capital.

“You can expect to see strict discipline around cost control and respect for farmers’ and unitholders’ invested capital. That’s our priority.”

Here's the financial highlights as given by Fonterra:

• Total Cash Payout for 2017/18 season: $6.79 
o Farmgate Milk Price $6.69 per kgMS 
o Dividend of 10 cents per share

          US Fed sees trade cutbacks, more rate hikes; US PPI falls; EU factory production falls; euro as reserve currency; China pumps in liquidity; UST 10yr at 2.98%; oil and gold up sharply; NZ$1 = 65.6 USc; TWI-5 = 69.4      Cache   Translate Page      

Here's our summary of key events overnight that affect New Zealand, with news oil prices are up sharply today.

But first, in its latest Beige Book review of economic conditions around the country, the American Fed reports businesses have scaled back or postponed investments due to concerns about international trade tensions. Overall, this survey sees the American economy expanding at a "moderate pace".

And the Fed is continuing to signal that rate hikes, even if gradual, will continue for the next few years. Pointedly they say that this will be the case even if their rate curve inverts. (On that, they say this time is different.)

American producer prices fell in August from July is a surprise shift lower. This was the first month-on-month drop in about 18 months. And it happened for services. Overall, it means that year-on-year, producer prices are +2.8% higher and a big reduction in annual growth from July when they were +3.3% higher.

Also shifting lower are American mortgage applications. They fell in August, and they are still falling in September and by larger levels than analysts were expecting.

EU industrial production also fell in July, and that slippage has been cumulative so that year-on-year levels are now lower.

But the president of the EU is still sounding positive. In his State of the Union address earlier today he called for the euro to be new dominant global reserve currency, saying the US is abrogating its international responsibilities and the EU is ready to step up.

On the trade front, Canada's leaders are huddling trying to figure out their response to a recalcitrant US position on NAFTA. The Mexicans say they are prepared to go it alone, and the Americans say they are reaching out to China in "one last attempt" before new higher and broader tariffs are imposed.

In China, their central bank is back injecting money directly into their economy, supposedly to cover a short liquidity strain while tax payments are due, but more likely as part of an overall campaign to shore up lending and demand, as they try to keep the adjustment hurt from surfacing.

Today, the UST 10yr yield is lower at 2.96%, a -2 bps dip in a day. However, their 2-10 curve is tighter at just +21 bps. The Aussie Govt 10yr is at 2.59% (up +1 bp), the China Govt 10yr is at 3.70% and also up +1 bp, while the NZ Govt 10 yr is at 2.62%, up +2 bps.

Gold is rising today, up a chunky +US12 at US$1,208/oz in New York.

US oil prices are up sharply for a second day in a row and now just over US$70/bbl. The Brent benchmark is also higher, now just on US$80/bbl. These are big, fast rises brought about by a sharp fall in US crude inventories, the Iran sanctions, the expected impact from the US hurricane, and the growing fears a big typhoon will hit Hong Kong, Taiwan, and the Philippines.

The Kiwi dollar is starting today firmer at 65.6 USc. On the cross rates we are at 91.5 AUc, and at 56.4 euro cents. That puts the TWI-5 at 69.4.

Bitcoin is marginally firmer at US$6,280. Also this. This price is tracked in the currency charts below.

          World Clean Up Day 15 September 2018      Cache   Translate Page      
The biggest civic action in the history of our planet, the World Cleanup Day, will take place on 15 September. On this day, millions of people from 150 countries will come together to take a step towards a cleaner world and draw attention to the global waste problem.

The biggest civic action in the world started in Estonia in 2008 and will be overseen from Estonia on 15 September. This means that we have the chance to make Estonia bigger than ever before in just one day.

Come along and join the cleanup action!

Find the nearest pile of rubbish, take some bin bags and gloves with you, and clean it up. Even the smallest contribution helps! You will find the contact details of the teams in your country at www.worldcleanupday.org/contact/

World Clean Up Day 15 September 2018

●    The World Cleanup Day will be held on 15 September 2018.
●    The biggest civic action in the world started in Estonia in 2008 and will be overseen from Estonia on 15 September. Approximately 150 countries will start cleaning up the Earth on the same day under the leadership of Estonia.
●    Let’s Do It World Cleanup Day is part of the Estonia 100 programme and is the biggest gift from Estonians to the world.
●    The World Cleanup Day will follow the Sun around the world – the cleanup will start at 10 am in New Zealand and end 36 hours later in Hawaii. The action will kick off on 14 September at 11 pm Estonian time.
●    The headquarters of the World Cleanup Day will be based in Tallinn and the results of the action, information, TV broadcasts, etc. from all over the world will be gathered there. The global TV broadcast will be hosted from the headquarters in Tallinn and shared all over the planet.
●    Millions of people will come out in support of cleaner nature, with an aim to take a step towards a cleaner world together and draw attention to the global problem of waste and seek possible solutions.
●    In Estonia, the cleanup action will focus on forests, beaches, lake shores and river banks.

Facts about the waste problem

●    According to the International Solid Waste Association (ISWA), ca 4 billion tons of waste is generated every year, of which ca 1.6 billion tons  is household waste.
●    3.5 billion people in the world have no access to waste management systems and the waste ends up in nature, incl. in oceans, or it is burnt.
●    According to the Global Waste Management Outlook, hundreds of millions of tons of illegal waste ends up in nature every year and from there makes its way to the oceans. 80% of the waste floating in oceans is of mainland origin.
●    This is why the problem of waste is just as critical for developed countries as it is for developing ones. Although several associations monitor waste in different regions of the world, insufficient information about the quantities and locations of the waste prevents dealing with the problem efficiently.

The story of the World Cleanup Day

●    A group of people, including Rainer Nõlvak, Toomas Trapido, Henri Laupmaa and Kadri Allikmäe, sat down together in August 2007 and came up with the idea to clean Estonia from waste in one day. Ahti Heinla, Tiina Urm, Tatjana Lavrova, Eva Truuverk and Anneli Ohvril joined them later. 620 volunteers and over 500 organisations in Estonia helped make Let’s Do It! a success.
●    More than 50 thousand people cleaned up over 10 thousand tons of waste on 3 May 2008. It would have taken the state years and cost 22.5 million euros. But it got done in one day and only cost half a million euros (mostly the cost of waste handling by waste management companies).
●    The first country to join Estonia’s initiative was Lithuania, which carried out a supporting cleanup day with Estonia (with a couple of thousands of volunteers on 3 May 2008). Latvia carried out a cleanup action in autumn; Slovenia, Portugal, Serbia and many others followed suit.
●    Almost 20 million people from more than a hundred countries of the world have cleaned up their territories at different times based on the Let’s Do It! model.
●    Maximum numbers of cleanup day participants: Latvia (210,000), Lithuania (250,000), Portugal (100,000), Slovenia (270,000), Romania (250,000), Albania (281,000), Hungary (200,000), Bulgaria (375,000), Ukraine (500,000), India (54,000), the Philippines (28,000), etc.

          Guest Recital: Michael Kimber, viola with Kathryn Plummer, viola      Cache   Translate Page      

Monday, October 1

8 p.m.

Steve and Judy Turner Recital Hall

Guest Recital: Michael Kimber, viola

with Kathryn Plummer, viola

Violist Michael Kimber has been praised for his “lyrical sound, full of warmth and color” and “agility that was little short of astounding.”  He began his musical studies on violin and had in mind pursuing a career as a composer. However, at the age of 20 he was persuaded to play viola (not violin) in a string trio, an experience that was life-changing. Captivated by the viola’s rich sound, he saw the light, went to the dark side, and decided to dedicate his efforts to becoming a violist, studying with Francis Bundra at the University of Michigan and at Interlochen, and with Raphael Hillyer, the founding violist of the Juilliard String Quartet.

After completing his doctorate in viola performance, Dr. Kimber began his professional career playing viola with the Alexandria Quartet, an American ensemble in residence at the Queensland Conservatorium of Music in Australia. This adventure was followed by an exciting year premiering new music from coast to coast in the US and Canada as violist of the Kronos Quartet. During twenty-five years as a viola professor, first at the University of Kansas and then at the University of Southern Mississippi, he also served as principal violist of the Kansas City Chamber Orchestra, the Kansas City Camerata, and the Meridian Symphony Orchestra, while performing internationally with ensembles as diverse as the Atlanta Virtuosi, the Early Music Consort of Kansas City, and the Oread Baroque Ensemble. Since 2005 he has been artist instructor of viola at Coe College, plays viola with Orchestra Iowa, and is an active member of the Iowa Composers Forum.  Among his former students are Brant Bayless, principal violist of the Utah Symphony; Maria Bogodist, principal violist of the Omsk (Siberia) Philharmonia; Tim Deighton, professor of viola at Pennsylvania State University; and Julio Lopez, violist in the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra and a professor at the Vienna Music Academy.

Having given up composing in 1965 to focus on viola performance, Dr. Kimber began to compose again in 1985. Since that time his music, especially that for viola, has become widely known and performed. In 2010 the American Viola Society presented him its Founders Award in recognition of his contributions as a composer of music for viola. Seven CDs of his music, recorded by Polish violist Marcin Murawski, have been released by Acte Préalable. His music can also be heard on the CDs American Voices (Hillary Herndon, viola), archi d'amore zelanda (Donald Maurice, viola d’amore), and Night Strings (George Taylor, viola), and in numerous performances on YouTube by both students and artist performers.  The 2017 International Viola Congress in Wellington, New Zealand, concluded with massed violas performing eight of his works in a “Tribute to Michael Kimber.”  He has been named Red Cedar Chamber Music composer-in-residence for the 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 seasons.

Fascinated with the colorful history of tuning systems and intonation, Dr. Kimber enjoys opening musicians’ ears to the beautiful subtleties of melodic and harmonic intonation, an awareness of which should be a part of every musician’s training. Nevertheless, he is most often applauded for something more mundane — the invention of the amazingly comfortable poly-pad violin/viola shoulder rest. Since 1990 tens of thousands of poly-pads have been purchased in all 50 states, DC, and 34 foreign countries.

This event is free and open to the public. Parking is available in the West Garage (2500 Children's Way) free of charge.

          Diễn đàn Kinh tế ASEAN : Trung Quốc đả kích bảo hộ mậu dịch      Cache   Translate Page      
Phó thủ tướng Trung Quốc Hồ Xuân Hoa phát biểu trong phiên họp toàn thể Diễn đàn Kinh tế ASEAN tại Hà Nội ngày 12/09/2018. September 12, 2018.

Tại Diễn đàn Kinh tế ASEAN tổ chức tại Hà Nội, hôm nay 12/09/2018 phó thủ tướng Trung Quốc Hồ Xuân Hoa (Hu Chunhua) cho rằng các biện pháp bảo hộ mậu dịch là « mối nguy hiểm lớn ». Tuyên bố này được đưa ra trong bối cảnh Bắc Kinh đang vất vả đối phó với cuộc chiến tranh thương mại do Washington khởi xướng.

Theo ông Hồ Xuân Hoa, « các biện pháp bảo hộ đơn phương của một số nước làm phương hại nặng nề đến hệ thống thương mại đa phương (…), gây nguy hiểm rất lớn cho nền kinh tế thế giới ». Cũng theo phó thủ tướng Trung Quốc, « chủ nghĩa cô lập sẽ không đi đến đâu, chỉ có mở cửa với tất cả các nước mới là con đường tốt đẹp ».

Lời đe dọa của tổng thống Mỹ Donald Trump là sẽ đánh thuế 25% trên 200 tỉ đô la hàng Trung Quốc, có thể trong tháng Chín này, đang là trung tâm chú ý của hội nghị quy tụ các nhà lãnh đạo và chủ doanh nghiệp châu Á diễn ra tại Hà Nội từ ngày 11 đến 13/9. 

Cuộc chiến tranh thương mại Mỹ-Trung được theo dõi sát sao tại Đông Nam Á. AFP dẫn lời chuyên gia của văn phòng luật sư Baker McKenzie tại Việt Nam nhận định, các nước như Việt Nam và Cam Bốt vốn dựa vào xuất khẩu, có thể được hưởng lợi từ cuộc chiến này. 

Nhiều công ty Trung Quốc đã di dời sản xuất sang các nước khác trong khu vực để né tránh thuế quan của Mỹ. Trước đó không ít nhà máy Trung Quốc đã chuyển dịch sang Đông Nam Á do giá nhân công Hoa lục tăng lên.

Trong khi đó tổng giám đốc IMF, bà Christine Lagarde hôm qua lo ngại chiến tranh thương mại sẽ gây thiệt hại cho một số quốc gia mới nổi, đặc biệt là Achentina và Thổ Nhĩ Kỳ.

Cũng tại Diễn đàn, tuy Trung Quốc cố gắng lôi kéo đồng minh, thủ tướng Singapore Lý Hiển Long vẫn nói rằng không chắc có thể đạt được một thỏa thuận về RCEP trong năm nay. Đây là hiệp định tự do mậu dịch giữa 10 nước ASEAN và Trung Quốc, Ấn Độ, Nhật Bản, Hàn Quốc, Úc, New Zealand, do Bắc Kinh khởi xướng ; được cho là nhằm thay thế hiệp định TPP trong đó Trung Quốc bị đứng ngoài.

One of our favorite filmmakers made a stop in Toronto to provide a Master Class.

Eagle vs. Shark, Boy, What We Do in the Shadows, Hunt for the Wilderpeople, Thor: Ragnarok: Even the titles in Taika Waititi’s beloved filmography sound like a joke running wild, bursting with imagination. Waititi’s career is rooted in subversion, finding the humor in life’s confusion and dysfunction.

While perfecting his two latest projects—Bubbles and Jojo Rabbit—Waititi served as a juror at the Venice Film Festival, before flying to the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival where he mixed offbeat comedy with a rich dose of wisdom. No Film School sat in on his Master Class to gather choice insights.

Born to a Maori family in East New Zealand, Waititi never had childhood dreams of becoming a filmmaker. “I’m not one of those guys who grew up with a Super 8 camera,” he shrugged. “Wanting to be an artist in 1980’s New Zealand was not cool, you’d get the shit kicked out of you. There were three jobs where I grew up: working in the forestry, driving trucks in and out of the forestry, and selling dope.”

          Meghan Markle Has Reportedly Lost Touch With Her Close Friends Since Becoming a Royal      Cache   Translate Page      

Before finding love with Prince Harry, Meghan Markle had no shortage of celebrity friends, but it seems her inner circle has gotten smaller since becoming a royal. "Meghan has lost touch with some of her close friends from before the wedding, which has been tough," People reports. "She's finding it hard to know who to trust."

Meghan has also been dealing with her fair share of family drama. Not only does her father, former lighting director Thomas Markle, continue to talk to the press about his fractured relationship with his daughter, but her half-sister Samantha keeps lashing out at Meghan in the media. "It was very wearing on her. It's her private life," a source added.

Even so, we're glad Meghan still has a few good friends she can count on. In July, she was spotted cheering on pal Serena Williams at Wimbledon, and Priyanka Chopra made a special visit to Meghan and Harry's country home in Oxfordshire, Engalnd, with fiancé Nick Jonas. Just last month, Meghan also took a secret trip to Toronto to hang out with BFF Jessica Mulroney.

Meghan and Harry will be embarking on their first royal tour as a married couple next month. The pair will be visiting Australia, Fiji, New Zealand, and the Kingdom of Tonga. "The tour is going to be her chance to shine," author Ingrid Seward told the outlet. "She knows she'll be center stage, and everyone is going to want to meet her. It is her biggest part yet. I'm absolutely confident she will be very, very good."

          Radio Free Asia: Chinese Political Refugee on Hunger Strike in Thai Immigration Detention Center      Cache   Translate Page      
Radio Free Asia
2018-09-12

A Chinese political refugee detained last month by police in Thailand has begun a hunger strike in an immigration detention center in the hope of staving off her forced repatriation.

Wu Yuhua, who is also known by her nickname Ai Wu, was detained by police in Bangkok alongside her husband Yang Chong on Aug. 29 and locked up in an immigration detention center.

"There is no way to resist; no dignity," Ai Wu said in a video statement smuggled out of the detention center. "That's why I have decided to go on hunger strike to protest my detention and the decisions by the police, I who am an innocent refugee."

The couple had been registered as genuine political refugees by the United Nations and were awaiting resettlement in a third country.

refugee Ai Wu, stands shackled in a cell at an

Fellow Thailand-based refugee Yu Yanhua said Ai Wu had begun refusing food after the couple's third appeal was rejected by a court in Bangkok.

"She is in total despair and she is very angry, so she is going on a hunger strike in protest," Yu told RFA. "She isn't in good health, and she requested via her lawyer and an interpreter to be allowed to see a doctor appointed by the court, but in the end they didn't let her."

"I don't think she will be able to stand [being on hunger strike]," she said.

Meanwhile, the Thai authorities have changed conditions attached to bail arrangements for the couple on a number of occasions.

"They said it would cost 24,000 baht [U.S. $731] for one person and 48,000 baht [U.S. 1,461] for both of them to bail them out, but then there was also an issue with their address," Yu said.

"Then they wanted the U.N. to guarantee they wouldn't abscond, so I came here to the UN today, and they won't guarantee that Ai Wu and Yang Chong won't abscond," she said.

Wu also said efforts were under way to prevent the couple from being repatriated to China where they would likely face official reprisals for their activism.

Yang and Ai Wu were initially targeted by Chinese police after taking part in the press freedom protests in the southern city of Guangzhou in January 2013.

They fled the country in February 2015, and made their way to Thailand after Ai Wu started a support group for disappeared rights lawyer Gao Zhisheng.

Since then, they have been eking an existence without papers in the country's Pattaya region.

They were approved as political refugees by the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) in Bangkok in 2017, but had yet to be accepted for resettlement in a third country amid a global tightening of national immigration policies.

The hand of the CCP

Another Thailand-based refugee Wang Xili said he believes Beijing is behind the couple's detention.

"I think we have seen the hand of the Chinese Communist Party in all of this," Wang said. "It is entirely possible that China doesn't want them to get out [of immigration detention]."

Wu and Yang were detained along with He Weiyi outside the New Zealand Embassy in Bangkok, where they had intended to deliver a petition along with Duan Jinggang and other Chinese exiles.

Eyewitnesses said He Weiyi, a missionary with legal immigration status in Thailand, was released soon after, but Wu and Yang couldn't produce any legal documents proving their right to be in Thailand, and were taken to an immigration detention center.

In July, authorities in the southwestern Chinese city of Chongqing jailed two rights activists sent home from Thailand as they were awaiting resettlement as political refugees, prompting an international outcry.

Dong Guangping and Jiang Yefei fled with their families to Thailand in 2015, and were granted refugee status by the UNHCR office in Bangkok.

But as they awaited resettlement in a third country, they were handed over to China by the Thai police, in a move that drew strong criticism from the U.N.

Dong and Jiang were both found guilty of "incitement to subvert state power" and "illegally crossing a national border" by a court in Chongqing.

Jiang received a six-and-a-half-year jail term, while Dong was sentenced to three-and-a-half years, their relatives said, citing phone calls with police and online reports.

The evening of music, linked by sonic metaphors, composed by an array of national and international composers, and performed by LACO musicians and others, also offers a "hang" with the artists and a drink ticket for ticketholders, plus food available for purchase.

The program features a world premiere by Spiva, a rising African-American composer long associated with LACO. Titled The Body Overcome, it is a peaceful meditation for string quartet, wind quartet, percussion, voice and oud (a pear shaped Middle Eastern lute with West African, Indian and Eastern European influences. Also performed are Conor Brown's Hirvi ("The Elk"), a jubilant work for double quintet and voice influenced by Norwegian and Eastern European music traditions; Reena Esmail's String Quartet (Ragamala), which blends Indian and Western classical music styles; selections from Salina Fisher's abstract T?rino, a string quartet inspired by Maori p?t?rino (traditional flute of New Zealand); and movements from Juan Pablo Contreras' celebratory Angel Mestizo for harp, double quintet and percussion. Acclaimed Hindustani vocalist Saili Oak demonstrates her tremendous versatility, performing in Hindustani classical style on Spiva's and Esmail's works and in Finnish on Brown's.

"These composers and their music serve as bridges between musical traditions, emphasizing the connections between things that may initially appear to be dissimilar," says Spiva, who served as LACO Composer In Residence in the 2015-16 season and is noted for conducting, composing and teaching styles that reflect the multicultural atmosphere of Los Angeles, where he lives and works.

"LACO's Artist Educator Derrick Spiva, Jr is working closely with us to help expand upon LACO's commitment to support music creators, provide meaningful music education opportunities and increase community access to music," explains LACO Executive Director Scott Harrison. "SESSION, LACO's newest performance experience, is designed to appeal to those who may be unfamiliar with classical music as well as those curious about the ways in which the genre is shifting and progressing."

SESSION continues in Winter 2019 with conductor/composer Matthias Pintscher and in spring 2019 with conductor/composer and wild Up director Christopher Rountree, whose work stands at the intersection of classical music, new music, performance art and pop. Programs fit the unique properties of unconventional spaces and test ideas about the relationship between performers and audience. (Dates and details to be announced.)

Spiva, who holds a BA from UCLA and an MFA from CalArts, was awarded a composer residency with LACO through New Music USA's "Music Alive" program for the Orchestra's 2015-16 season, during which LACO gave the world premiere of his joyous work Prisms, Cycles, Leaps, the first part of his trilogy for chamber orchestra, influenced by traditional West African music and Hindustani rhythmic cycles. In May 2018, LACO premiered the second part, From Here A Path. This season, Sphinx Virtuosi gives the New York premiere of Spiva's A Vision Unfolding at Carnegie Hall. Spiva is noted for conducting, composing and teaching styles that reflect the multicultural fabric of Los Angeles, where he lives and works. He weaves music across multiple cultures into his musical vocabulary by using integrative composition techniques that seek common ground between different musical traditions, creating works that break down the boundaries between musical genres. He received the prestigious New Music USA award in both 2010 and 2011 and has served as a teaching artist for the Los Angeles Philharmonic, instructor for the Community Arts Partnership program at CalArts and Artistic Director and conductor for the Santa Clarita Valley Youth Orchestra. Spiva is also Artistic Director of the new music ensemble Bridge to Everywhere. He studied classical music as a student of Ian Krouse, Paul Chihara, David Rosenboom and Alex Shapiro while also studying West African music and dance with Kobla Ladzepko, Persian music theory with Pirayeh Pourafar and Houman Pourmehdi, Balkan music theory with Tzvetanka Varimezova, and tala in Hindustani classical music with Swapan Chaudhuri and Aashish Khan.

Oak, a finalist on the popular Indian singing reality TV series Zee Marathi's Sa Re Ga Ma Pa, is a disciple of Dr. Ashwini Bhide Deshpande, a leading vocalist of the Jaipur-Atrauli gharana. She has established her own musical identity, incorporating classical and semi-classical musical styles into traditional Indian technique. In addition to performing throughout India, Oak has appeared at the Summer Sounds festival at the Hollywood bowl, Vedic Heritage in New York and Beyond Borders at the University of Maine. With several albums and singles to her credit, Oak is the first Hindustani singer to perform with a symphony orchestra.

Brown, a composer and clarinetist from Altona, Colorado, finds musical inspiration in the sweeping prairies, big sky and jagged peaks of the American West. His compositions often feature complex, driving rhythms, sustained tension and ornamentation influenced by folk music from around the world. He has had works commissioned by the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, Albany Symphony Orchestra, the American Symphony Orchestra and many others.

Contreras, born in Guadalajara, Mexico, is a Los Angeles-based classical music composer who incorporates Mexican popular and folk music into his works. He received a LACO commission for its In Focus series that will be premiered this spring. Recognized as "one of the most prominent young composers of Latin America" (Milenio), Contreras' music has been performed by the National Symphony Orchestra of Mexico, the Salta and Cordoba symphonies in Argentina and the Simon Bolivar Symphony Orchestra in Venezuela. The recipient of the ASCAP Morton Gould Young Composer Award and Mexican Endowment for the Arts and Culture Young Artist Fellowship, Contreras has served as composer-in-residence at the Turtle Bay Music School and the Concerts on the Slope chamber music series in New York. He holds degrees in composition from the Manhattan School of Music (MM) and CalArts (BFA), and is currently pursuing a DMA degree at the USC Thornton School of Music.

Esmail, a Los Angeles-based Indian-American composer whose musical compositions span the worlds of Indian and Western classical music, has worked with the Kronos Quartet, Salastina Music Society, American Composers Orchestra and SOLI, among many others. Currently the Composer in Residence for Street Symphony, she previously served in similar posts with the Albany Symphony, Concerts on the Slope and Pasadena Master Chorale. Esmail, who has taught at Yale College and the Manhattan School of Music, received a Fulbright scholarship to study Hindustani music in India. Her doctoral thesis, entitled Finding Common Ground: Uniting Practices in Hindustani and Western Art Musicians, explores the methods and challenges of the collaborative process between Hindustani musicians and Western composers.

Fisher is a New Zealand composer and violinist currently based in New York. Her work, which explores the musical traditions of Japan and New Zealand, with experiments in timbre and colour, has been performed internationally by the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, Albany Symphony Orchestra and St Louis Symphony Youth Orchestra, among others. In 2016, Fisher became the youngest ever winner of the SOUNZ Contemporary Award, New Zealand's premier composition prize, for her work Rainphase. In 2017, she won the prestigious award again for T?rino, commissioned in 2016 by Chamber Music New Zealand. She is currently studying for a Master of Music in Composition at Manhattan School of Music with composer/performer Susan Botti.

Four Larks, creative producers and art directors of SESSION, is noted for blurring the lines between dance, theater and opera. The organization, which operates in the back of a flower shop in downtown LA, has garnered acclaim for its award-winning "junkyard operas" that combine large-scale immersive design with innovative orchestration and dynamic physical theatre. Composer/Director Mat Sweeney and Creative Producer Sebastian Peters-Lazaro have been creating original work as Four Larks since 2008. Alongside an international collective of collaborators, Four Larks works variously as chamber-pop band, physical theatre ensemble and immersive space-makers.

Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra (LACO) ranks among the world's top musical ensembles. Beloved by audiences and praised by critics, the Orchestra is known as a champion of contemporary composers, with eight ASCAP Awards for Adventurous Programming, as well as a preeminent interpreter of historical masterworks. Headquartered in the heart of the country's cultural capital, LACO has been proclaimed "America's finest chamber orchestra" (Public Radio International), "LA's most unintimidating chamber music experience" (Los Angeles magazine), "resplendent" (Los Angeles Times) and "one of the world's great chamber orchestras"(KUSC Classical FM). Performing throughout greater Los Angeles, the Orchestra presents orchestral, Baroque and chamber concerts, as well as salon evenings in private spaces and unique experiences that explore classical music's cutting-edge sounds. Jaime Martín, praised as "a visionary conductor, discerning and meticulous" (Platea Magazine), is LACO's Music Director Designate and takes the podium as Music Director in the 2019-20 season.

Steinway is the official piano of Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra.

New Zealand's Domain Name Commission today won a motion for preliminary injunction in a US lawsuit against the company DomainTools. Plaintiff argued that DomainTools breached the Commission's terms of use and exposed details of domain name holders who choose to have their details kept private. Domain Name Commissioner, Brent Carey, in a release today said: "We look forward to presenting our full case to the Court, as we seek to permanently prevent DomainTools from ever building a secondary .nz database offshore and outside the control of the Domain Name Commission."

DomainTools argued that this lawsuit may cause an avalanche of litigation as a result of other registries also attempting to protect the privacy of their registrants to which Judge Lasnik responded they may be correct.

          New Zealand Food Prices Slide 0.5% In August       Cache   Translate Page      

Food prices in New Zealand fell an unadjusted 0.5 percent on month in August, Statistics New Zealand said on Thursday - while seasonally adjusted food prices fell 0.8 percent.

Individually, fruit and vegetable prices fell 2.1 percent (down 4.6 percent after seasonal adjustment), while meat, poultry, and fish prices fell 1.4 percent and grocery food prices rose 0.5 percent (up 0.9 after seasonal adjustment).

Also, non-alcoholic beverage prices fell 1.9 percent and restaurant meals and ready-to-eat food prices rose 0.1 percent.

On a yearly basis, food prices eased 0.1 percent in August.

Individually, fruit and vegetable prices decreased 6.5 percent, while meat, poultry, and fish prices decreased 0.9 percent and grocery food prices increased 0.1 percent.

Also, non-alcoholic beverage prices increased 3.2 percent and restaurant meals and ready-to-eat food prices increased 2.9 percent.

Broccoli prices fell 27 percent in August and 32 percent for the year, contributing strongly to the overall fall of monthly and annual food prices.

"Broccoli is grown all year round, but is typically cheapest in December, at about NZ$1.50 a head," prices manager Geraldine Duoba said. "The cool weather this winter provided ideal growing conditions for broccoli."

The average price of a 350g head of broccoli was NZ$2.09 in August 2018, down 77 cents from July. It is also about one-third cheaper than a year ago when prices reached NZ$3.09 per head in August 2017.

          Diễn đàn Kinh tế ở Hà Nội: PTT Trung Quốc lên án chủ nghĩa bảo hộ       Cache   Translate Page      
Phó Thủ tướng Trung Quốc Hồ Xuân Hoa hôm 12/9 kêu gọi loại bỏ nghĩa bảo hộ và nói rằng chính sách thương mại đơn phương của một số nước đề ra “mối nguy hiểm nghiêm trọng nhất” đối với nền kinh tế thế giới, theo Reuters.

Trái qua phải: Phó thủ tướng TQ Hồ Xuân Hoa, Thủ tướng VN Nguyễn Xuân Phúc và Chủ tịch điều hành Diễn đàn Kinh tế Thế giới Klaus Schwab trong buổi họp ở Hà Nội ngày 12/9/2018 .

Phát biểu của ông được đưa ra vào thời điểm tranh chấp thương mại giữa Trung Quốc và Hoa Kỳ đang ngày càng tồi tệ. Nước Mỹ được xem là đang sử dụng các biện pháp bảo hộ kinh tế dưới thời Tổng thống Donald Trump.

Lãnh đạo các quốc gia Đông Nam Á cũng lên tiếng ủng hộ các hiệp ước đa phương tại Diễn đàn Kinh tế Thế giới ở Hà Nội. Mặc dù vậy, Singapore nhấn mạnh rằng không có sự bảo đảm có đồng thuận lớn về hiệp ước thương mại lớn nhất thế giới mà các nước đang làm việc với Trung Quốc sẽ được ký kết vào cuối năm nay.

“Các biện pháp đơn phương và bảo hộ của một số quốc gia đang làm suy yếu nghiêm trọng hệ thống thương mại đa phương dựa trên nguyên tắc, đề ra mối nguy hiểm nghiêm trọng nhất đối với nền kinh tế thế giới”, Reuters dẫn lời ông Hoa nói tại Diễn đàn Kinh tế Thế giới của Hiệp hội các quốc gia Đông Nam Á (ASEAN).

“Chúng ta phải loại bỏ một cách dứt khoát chủ nghĩa bảo hộ và chủ nghĩa đơn phương, ủng hộ mạnh mẽ chủ nghĩa đa phương và duy trì nền kinh tế thế giới và hệ thống thương mại đa phương”, Phó Thủ tướng Trung Quốc nói thêm.

Tuần trước, Tổng thống Hoa Kỳ Donald Trump nói ông sẵn sàng áp thuế bổ sung trên hầu hết hàng nhập khẩu của Trung Quốc, đe dọa đánh thuế trên 267 tỷ USD hàng hóa, vượt quá mức thuế dự kiến là 200 tỷ USD trên các sản phẩm của Trung Quốc.

Trung Quốc hôm 10/9 nói sẽ đáp trả nếu Hoa Kỳ thực hiện bất kỳ hành động mới nào về thương mại.

Tổng thống Trump thường chỉ trích về mức thặng dư thương mại của Trung Quốc với Hoa Kỳ, và yêu cầu Bắc Kinh phải cắt giảm ngay lập tức.

Nếu Hoa Kỳ áp đặt mức thuế bổ sung 25% trên 200 tỷ USD hàng hóa Trung Quốc, thì số người thất nghiệp ở Trung Quốc có thể tăng thêm 3 triệu nếu như Bắc Kinh không có bất kỳ biện pháp đối phó nào, theo các nhà phân tích của JP Morgan.

Nếu Washington tiếp tục áp thuế 25% đối với tất cả hàng nhập khẩu của Trung Quốc, thì khoảng 6 triệu việc làm ở Trung Quốc có thể bị ảnh hưởng, nếu Trung Quốc không có bước phản ứng nào và không phá giá đồng nhân dân tệ.

Trong khi đó, Thủ tướng Singapore Lý Hiến Long nói ông không chắc sẽ đạt được thỏa thuận trong năm nay về Hiệp định Thương mại Hợp tác Toàn diện Khu vực (RCEP), bao gồm 10 nước ASEAN và Trung Quốc, Australia, Ấn Độ, Nhật Bản, Hàn Quốc và New Zealand.

Hồi đầu tháng này, Bộ trưởng thương mại Singapore cho biết các quốc gia đang nhắm tới việc đạt được thỏa thuận lớn về hiệp ước tại một hội nghị thượng đỉnh các lãnh đạo ở Singapore vào tháng 11, 6 năm sau khi các cuộc đàm phán bắt đầu.

RCEP do Bắc Kinh hậu thuẫn và có thêm động lực mới từ việc Hoa Kỳ rút ra khỏi Hiệp định thương mại đối tác xuyên Thái Bình Dương (TPP) mà Trung Quốc không phải là một thành viên.

          Teenager facing jail after Photoshopping himself into poses with world leaders      Cache   Translate Page      

China's crackdown on online rumor-mongers and fraud has snared a fresh target: a 17-year-old junior high school dropout who pretended to be a billionaire, gave himself fake titles and posted Photoshopped pictures of himself with world leaders. Police in northern China's Shandong province said they were investigating the suspect, identified by the surname Shi and one of the characters in his first name, who called himself the "Sh Runlong Jocker" on social media and claimed to be a Chinese New Zealander from Hong Kong. Shi made false claims about his identity, including that he was a board member of the Japanese Red Cross Society and a director at a fictional Shandong Internet Economic Research Center. He also circulated fake images of himself with US President Donald Trump, French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Shi is also accused of being responsible for a fake state media article: the official Xinhua news agency said it had discovered a fake article claiming to be from Xinhua that portrayed Shi as a poverty alleviation hero.

          An Evening with Douglas Murray & Cornel West: Polarised      Cache   Translate Page      

By Olivia Pierson
http://www.oliviapierson.org/b...

After going to hear these two men discuss ideas about Western culture, my overall feeling was that they didn’t really “have at it.” They didn’t come across as all that polarised from one another, as one might’ve thought they would be, given that they are usually on the opposite side of every issue. West, the loud-speaking, black American liberal, Murray, the politely brilliant, conservative Englishman.

The two men were interviewed by Mihingarangi Forbes (aka Joanna Forbes), who was beautifully dressed and groomed, but poorly spoken, both in elocution and volume, plus obviously had an agenda to ask insipidly peecee questions. She also began and ended with speaking to her guests in Maori, not just a greeting, but long rambles in a native tongue, which was incredibly rude considering she knew that they could not understand her, and they were highly aware that she knew that. I wager only two other people in the audience could understand those long rants in an obscure, indigenous, South Pacific tongue.

Forbes only ever referred to New Zealand as Aotearoa, so it was completely forgivable that Murray at one point referred to “what is going on here in Australia” – forgetting he was at that moment in New Zealand. Who would know when an unknowable tongue keeps babbling about being in a place called Aotearoa – and all in the language of tangata whenua? Sheesh!

Forbes’ first question was, “Who are your mentors?” West waxed lyrical about Aretha Franklin and her great soul-music, because she had just died and he was clearly feeling the loss. Murray said that Christopher Hitchens had been influential on his thinking. So when some effeminate, medallion-festooned upstart during question time told Murray, “Could he see why so many people have observed that he is the epitome of an arrogant white male – because he said he has no mentors?” It was frankly weird and hostile in a shabby little show-pony way. Murray didn’t say he has no mentors, he preferred to use the term “influences” before mentioning Hitchens.

Given that Douglas Murray is now famous for his best selling and utterly chilling book, titled The Strange Death of Europe, there was no discussion of Islam, for neither he nor West were questioned by Forbes about this monumental issue of our time. Such was her lack of calibre.

Forbes directed a vague question about matters pertaining to foreign policy at the two men. West ran with it and took on the mantle of preacher-man with his antics and phrasing parroting the usual zeitgeisty quibbles about the eeeevuls of ‘American Empire’. On this point, Murray pushed back quite strongly, pointing out that America does not have an empire, evidenced by the fact that rather than taking any more territory than the continent which already bears its name, the only things it leaves behind in other countries are graves with its soldiers buried in them. Murray later added to that thought, perhaps knowing of New Zealand’s close ties to Chinese markets, that when it comes to critiquing empires which do not exist, beware of the one that does: China. A regime which actually does push aggressively to acquire new territories and when asked about this little foible we all hold dear called “human rights,” a regime which smiles politely and mumbles words to the effect of, “oh that’s nice,” but wouldn’t give a fig for them.

Forbes asked West another vague doozy about the state of “equality” in his country. He gave his usual response, “Now that is a powerful question!” Then sallied forth with his general habit of hyperbolic sermonising instead of giving a considered answer to the albeit vague question posed. We were told that, “The world will have equality when white folks care as much about a black baby as they do about a white baby! We will have equality in the world when Israelis care as much about the death of a Palestinian child as they do about the death of an Israeli child!”

Of course, in sympathy with Cornel’s reply, there was some clapping from the audience. I couldn’t help but think if only Palestinians cared as much for their own children as they expect Israel and the rest of the world to care about them. Really, it was a very cheap racist piece of nonsense that West proffered. When he spoke these ill-considered words, I couldn’t get past the irony that I was at that event with a friend who is European and whose only child is a Tongan daughter whom she adopted and loves with all her heart.

West tried to get some Trump Derangement Syndrome whipped up by referring to the “travesty” of the election of 2016 and Trump, but it didn’t work. Instead, there was mostly silence before some crazy woman, I think it may have been me, burst into a whoop and clapped rather than tut-tutted in sympathy with him. I certainly hope he didn’t take it as a sympathetic whoop!

Murray made an interesting observation which he said he still believes – and that is that Russia is responsible for hacking the Democratic National Convention and passed the information to Julian Assange to publish via Wikileaks. Assange has always vehemently denied his source was Russia, but Murray said he’s absolutely sure this is what took place during 2016.

All in all, though there were moments of interesting discussion to be heard over the evening, I felt the opportunity to have two firebrands on opposite sides of portentous issues was a bit wasted by having a very vanilla host being responsible for drawing them out for the edification of a large audience. Forbes really poured cold water over what should’ve been an evening of fun fireworks.

          Five Minutes With Steph Kershaw      Cache   Translate Page      
She brought up her 50th cap for Australia earlier this week so we felt it was the perfect time to get to know one of the Hockeyroos' rising stars Stephanie Kershaw. What’s your full name? Stephanie Anna Kershaw. Nicknames? Kersh or SK. Nothing interesting. Where exactly in Townsville are you from? Townsville. Literally in the city! What’s your favourite thing about Townsville? The Strand or Juliette’s, which is a café. It’s run by one of my good friend’s families who makes the best coffee in Townsville. Shameless plug! Just putting it out there. So what else about Townsville? And it’s also on the water, so we’ve got a beach and it’s always sunny. What did you do in Townsville as a kid? I played sports mostly and ran around a lot. What sports specifically? Hockey, athletics, soccer, swimming, softball, touch. Everything! Are you a fan of sports and do you support any teams? Recently I started supporting Fremantle in the AFL, for better or worse. I support the Cowboys in the NRL too, but they came second last this year. Is Johnathan Thurston a hero of yours, being a Townsville girl? I should say yes, but no, not really. What are your interests outside of Hockey? Coffee. I’m a coffee connoisseur. I drink soy flat white. Study or work? I study nutrition, so I’m looking to be a dietician at some point in my life. Where do you do that and how far along are you? I study at Curtin University, next door to where we train. I’m two-and-a-half years in. Does that help with Hockey? I reckon yes. It gives me something outside Hockey to concentrate on and it’s nice to have a break away from the athlete life. We heard you like to travel too. Favourite holiday destination and why? That’d have to be New Zealand, because it’s close. If I could go anywhere at the moment I’d say Iceland. It looks so nice. I’d be really keen to see the Northern Lights. I recently got back from Greece which was definitely in my top three places to go. Best country to play Hockey and why? Definitely the Netherlands. For the crowds basically. Your brother Tom Craig is a Kookaburra, do you guys only talk about Hockey? Yes, definitely. No, I’m kidding, we talk about a lot of stuff. Probably less about Hockey than most other people which is nice. Brooke Peris and Jeremy Hayward are also dating from the two squads. Who is the real Australian Hockey power couple? That’s a tricky one but I’d have to Chook and Jeremy are the original power couple. They’re just good and they love it. They help each other out. They train together, they gym together. You’ll see on their Insta stories! View this post on Instagram Followed Donna to Greece 🇬🇷 #mammamia A post shared by Steph Kershaw (@stephkersh) on Aug 8, 2018 at 2:22am PDT

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

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

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

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

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

She’s also been spotted in:

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

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

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

To recap: There is no news.

          Indianapolis Competition Classical Concerto Finals Day 1: Mozart with No Conductor      Cache   Translate Page      
By Laurie Niles: INDIANAPOLIS - Playing Mozart exposes a violinist's ability to bring accuracy and style to music that forgives nothing; doing so without a conductor adds yet another layer to the challenge. This was (and is) the test for the six violinists that remain in the International Violin Competition of Indianapolis, where the Classical Finals started on Wednesday night at Butler University's Schrott Center for the Arts. For this session, violinists are required to play a full Mozart violin concerto of their choice with the East Coast Chamber Orchestra, and they must demonstrate their leadership abilities by doing so without a conductor. They must also perform an encore piece by Fritz Kreisler, choosing from among six that were orchestrated by 1994 IVCI Laureate Jaakko Kuusisto. (Those included Liebesfreud, Liebesleid, Schön Rosmarin, Tambourin Chinois, Caprice Viennois or La Gitana.) Wednesday's performers included Richard Lin of Taiwan/United States; Risa Kokamura of Japan; and Ioana Cristina Goicea of Romania. Thursday night's finalists will include Shannon Lee of the United States/Canada; Luke Hsu of the United States; and Anna Lee of the United States. Click here to watch the live stream for any of those performances and to catch up on any performances you missed click here for the archived videos. It was clear from the beginning that playing with the East Coast Chamber Orchestra (ECCO) would be different from playing with a typical ensemble. Warming up the evening with two movements from Tchaikovsky's "Serenade for Strings," members of the group stood (as they always do) while performing, moving to the music with abandon and projecting a friendly aura of camaraderie. Richard Lin, 27, of Taiwan/U.S. was the first IVCI violinist of the evening, starting with a performance of Mozart Violin Concerto No. 5 that featured confident leadership and solid playing. Lin, whose former teachers are Lewis Kaplan and Aaron Rosand, is a graduate of both the Curtis Institute and Juilliard, and in the past he's garnered top prizes in the Hannover, Sendai, Singapore, Wieniawski, Shanghai and Michael Hill International Violin Competitions.

Immediately Lin established good communication with the orchestra, looking to concertmaster Susie Park to coordinate entrances and other musical details. Lin's stage demeanor was good-natured, matching the mood of the piece, and his pacing worked well throughout. His cadenzas -- those improvised-feeling show-off solo spots that occur at major cadences throughout the piece -- were well-crafted and elegantly played. Since I'd never heard those particular cadenzas I asked him afterwards who had composed them. Lin said that he had composed them himself for the most part, deriving inspiration for the first-movement cadenza from Ernst Hess; for the second-movement cadenza from G. Carmignola; and composing the third movement cadenzas completely himself. In the second movement Lin's opening melodic statement was sweet, simple and well-shaped, and he and ECCO created some nice drama together, as well as some truly poignant moments of music-making. The third movement was very articulate, and Lin's cadenzas were simple and fitting. For his Kreisler piece Lin played "Tambourin Chinois," and I'll note that after hearing this piece so many times with piano, I really enjoyed Kuusisto's arrangement for orchestra, which changed the textures and allowed for more variation. Lin showed excellent control, and his well-executed glissandi (slides) brought out the sultry feeling in the slow part, followed by an energetic and downright cute ending. Lin's Mozart 5 was not the only one of the evening -- all three candidates played the same Mozart concerto! So next was Mozart 5... At age 17, Risa Hokamura of Japan is the youngest of all the Finalists, by six years or more. She studies with Oguri Machie, Kobayashi Kenji and Harada Koichiro at the Tokyo College of Music High School and in 2017 won second prize in the Music Competition of Japan.

It was clear from her performance that Hokamura is a hugely accomplished player with a fine sense of musicality, but she had a rough night. A highlight of her performance was the way she played her cadenzas, which were written by Joseph Joachim and have been the go-to cadenzas for Mozart concerti since the 19th century, played by students all over the world. In fact, I would recommend that students watch her performance of the cadenzas, which were well-paced, accurate and quite enjoyable. During the second movement Hokamura seemed a little detached, playing with eyes closed, and then a major memory slip injected a feeling of unease into her performance. This movement is full of repeated sections, weaving into one thing and then another, and she simply took the wrong exit, then had to back-track. The third movement she played also with eyes closed, brightening a bit for the "Turkish" section. For her Kreisler piece, Risa also played "Tambourin Chinois," finding a sense of the gestures in this piece and also getting those very fast notes. Ioana Cristina Goicea, 25, of Romania was assertive and strong in the first movement of Mozart 5, and her collaboration with ECCO felt a little like a happy party. Goicea, who has studied with Petru Munteanu, Mariana Sirbu and Krzysztof Wegrzyn, is a veteran of the competition scene who in 2017 won First Prize in the Michael Hill International Violin Competition in New Zealand.

Goicea played with intention and a good sense of Mozart style, using the Joachim cadenzas, which at times felt a bit measured, but her presence with every note brought things off. In the second movement her opening melody was carefully shaped and attended to, without feeling overwrought. She had a moment when the bow when off-track, but on the whole this was a clean and solid performance. In the third movement she was able to inhabit the various characters and gestures within the music and bring them to life. For her Kreisler piece, Goicea played "La Gitana," starting with a great Gypsy beginning. With its many and varying tempi, this piece seemed a challenge to lead, but as it unfolded both orchestra and soloist were increasingly on the same page, and the ending was extremely well-coordinated and satisfying. Throughout the evening, the musicians of ECCO accompanied each violinist with sensitivity, earnest effort and a lot of energy. Classical Finals continue at 8 p.m. EST tonight at Butler University.

Seismic Response of Complex Structure Systems using Code-Compatible as-Recorded and Simulated Ground Motions Loghman, Vahid; Tarbali, Karim; Bradley, Brendon; Chandramohan, Reagan; McGann, Chris; Pettinga, Didier This research investigates the validation of simulated ground motions on complex structural systems. In this study, the seismic responses of two buildings are compared when they are subjected to as-recorded ground motions and simulated ones. The buildings have been designed based on New Zealand codes and physically constructed in Christchurch, New Zealand. The recorded ground motions are selected from 40 stations database of the historical 22 Feb. 2011 Christchurch earthquake. The Graves and Pitarka (2015) methodology is used to generate the simulated ground motions. The geometric mean of maximum inter-story drift and peak floor acceleration are selected as the main seismic responses. Also, the variation of these parameters due to record to record variability are investigated. Moreover, statistical hypothesis testing is used to investigate the similarity of results between observed and simulated ground motions. The results indicate a general agreement between the peak floor acceleration calculated by simulated and recorded ground motions for two buildings. While according to the hypothesis tests result, the difference in drift can be significant for the building with a shorter period. The results will help engineers and researchers to use or revise the procedure by using simulated ground motions for obtaining seismic responses.
          Tsunami Vulnerability: Developing Tools for Infrastruture Impact Assessment      Cache   Translate Page      
Tsunami Vulnerability: Developing Tools for Infrastruture Impact Assessment Williams, James; Whittaker, Colin; Wotherspoon, Liam Recent international tsunamis, including the 2011 Tohoku Tsunami, Japan, and the 2015 Illapel Tsunami, Chile, have highlighted the potential for impacts on the built environment. International research in the tsunami impacts domain have been largely focused towards impacts on buildings and casualty estimations, while only limited attention has been placed on the impacts on critical infrastructure. New Zealand, a developed and tectonically active island nation in the South Pacific, has a large amount of coastal infrastructure exposed to many local, regional and distal source tsunamis. To effectively manage tsunami risk for New Zealand critical infrastructure, including energy, transportation and communications, the vulnerability of infrastructure networks and components must first be determined. This research develops relevant asset vulnerability, functionality and repair-cost functions based on international post-event tsunami impact assessment data from technologically similar countries, including Japan and Chile. Utilising these functions within a New Zealand based framework allows for cost benefit analyses, determining effective tsunami risk management strategies and mitigation options for exposed critical infrastructure.

Claudia Li has finally stopped selling herself short. The designer, who for the past several season’s debuted her spring/summer collection at New York Fashion Week via presentation format, decided this season she was finally going to do a runway show. What was stopping her? She had the fan base, the design talent, and the production muscle behind her this whole time, so it was simply time for the next step.

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

Allow me to re-introduce myself was the theme here. The re-introduction of Claudia Li came with inspiration from her personal memories of her childhood spent in New Zealand. The color palette was inspired by the beautiful nature she saw growing up from the ocean to the mountains, and featured light blue, buttercup, lily and magenta.

Claudia Li finds childhood inspiration for NYFW

#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000 Her childhood memories not only informed the color palette, but the pattern choices as well. Oversized flower prints were inspired by her mother’s garden as a child. Original floral artwork was hand-drawn in Li’s studio and applied across the collection as embroideries, hand-stitched appliqués and custom-printed fabrics.

The silhouettes were comprised of Li’s core standards, namely the exaggerated collars and sleeves, wide-legged jeans, layered outerwear, and the contrast between tailoring and fluid draping.

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

In the spirit of spring, season-specific elements like multiclolor woven braids used across belts, straps, and bag handles, as well as deliberate rouching on sleeves and along the waist to give outerwear new volume.

Notably, the designer also cast all East Asian models in her runway show. This was a statement making move for an industry where East Asians are a large majority of fashion consumers, but still lack representation on runways and magazine covers.

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

While this isn’t a new Claudia Li, we were welcomed into her world in a new, more exposed way. This collection was a true piece of her given all the nostalgic references to her personal life. The heart and soul was there and not to be missed.

After serenading Kiwi fans, Passenger will then perform a series of Australian shows happening at Brisbane's The Tivoli Theatre, Melbourne's The Forum, Sydney's Enmore Theatre, Adelaide's The Gov, Perth's Astor Theatre and Metricup's 3 Oceans Palandri Estate.

'Runaway' finds Passenger embracing the epic once again—the melodies are unforgettable, the choruses colossal. Even though it was recorded between the UK and Australia with co-producer, Chris Vallejo (INXS, Empire Of The Sun, Josh Pyke), the 10-track album was imagined as unfolding against a backdrop of American landscapes. Instead of following a usual video process, Passenger and video director Jarrad Seng spent three weeks making videos across the US to capture the visual accompaniments to the aural landscapes.

The video for 'Runaway' reflects this beautifully, seeing Rosenberg run through breathtaking landscapes in the US; from the city to the countryside before entering coastal and forest terrain. Rosenberg says he is excited by the idea of hitting the road again—solo, this time after he brought in a full band for 2017's 'Young As The Morning' tour. And he's still busking, launching 'Runaway' in Europe with a series of busking appearances with more to come.

"Years ago, it was just me and a suitcase of CDs... We used to get 50 people. Now it's on a stage with a soundman, telling councils in advance. We might play to 3,000 people. But busking is something we've always done, a unique part of what Passenger is." - Mike Rosenberg

World War II

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

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

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

The Further Rise of Fascism

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

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

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

Isolationism vs. Interventionism

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

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

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

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

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

Image result for the neutrality acts

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

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

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

America Enters the War

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


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

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

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

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

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

The Allies Winning

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

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

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

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

          Indianapolis Competition Classical Concerto Finals Day 1: Mozart with No Conductor      Cache   Translate Page      
By Laurie Niles: INDIANAPOLIS - Playing Mozart exposes a violinist's ability to bring accuracy and style to music that forgives nothing; doing so without a conductor adds yet another layer to the challenge. This was (and is) the test for the six violinists that remain in the International Violin Competition of Indianapolis, where the Classical Finals started on Wednesday night at Butler University's Schrott Center for the Arts. For this session, violinists are required to play a full Mozart violin concerto of their choice with the East Coast Chamber Orchestra, and they must demonstrate their leadership abilities by doing so without a conductor. They must also perform an encore piece by Fritz Kreisler, choosing from among six that were orchestrated by 1994 IVCI Laureate Jaakko Kuusisto. (Those included Liebesfreud, Liebesleid, Schön Rosmarin, Tambourin Chinois, Caprice Viennois or La Gitana.) Wednesday's performers included Richard Lin of Taiwan/United States; Risa Kokamura of Japan; and Ioana Cristina Goicea of Romania. Thursday night's finalists will include Shannon Lee of the United States/Canada; Luke Hsu of the United States; and Anna Lee of the United States. Click here to watch the live stream for any of those performances and to catch up on any performances you missed click here for the archived videos. It was clear from the beginning that playing with the East Coast Chamber Orchestra (ECCO) would be different from playing with a typical ensemble. Warming up the evening with two movements from Tchaikovsky's "Serenade for Strings," members of the group stood (as they always do) while performing, moving to the music with abandon and projecting a friendly aura of camaraderie. Richard Lin, 27, of Taiwan/U.S. was the first IVCI violinist of the evening, starting with a performance of Mozart Violin Concerto No. 5 that featured confident leadership and solid playing. Lin, whose former teachers are Lewis Kaplan and Aaron Rosand, is a graduate of both the Curtis Institute and Juilliard, and in the past he's garnered top prizes in the Hannover, Sendai, Singapore, Wieniawski, Shanghai and Michael Hill International Violin Competitions.

Immediately Lin established good communication with the orchestra, looking to concertmaster Susie Park to coordinate entrances and other musical details. Lin's stage demeanor was good-natured, matching the mood of the piece, and his pacing worked well throughout. His cadenzas -- those improvised-feeling show-off solo spots that occur at major cadences throughout the piece -- were well-crafted and elegantly played. Since I'd never heard those particular cadenzas I asked him afterwards who had composed them. Lin said that he had composed them himself for the most part, deriving inspiration for the first-movement cadenza from Ernst Hess; for the second-movement cadenza from G. Carmignola; and composing the third movement cadenzas completely himself. In the second movement Lin's opening melodic statement was sweet, simple and well-shaped, and he and ECCO created some nice drama together, as well as some truly poignant moments of music-making. The third movement was very articulate, and Lin's cadenzas were simple and fitting. For his Kreisler piece Lin played "Tambourin Chinois," and I'll note that after hearing this piece so many times with piano, I really enjoyed Kuusisto's arrangement for orchestra, which changed the textures and allowed for more variation. Lin showed excellent control, and his well-executed glissandi (slides) brought out the sultry feeling in the slow part, followed by an energetic and downright cute ending. Lin's Mozart 5 was not the only one of the evening -- all three candidates played the same Mozart concerto! So next was Mozart 5... At age 17, Risa Hokamura of Japan is the youngest of all the Finalists, by six years or more. She studies with Oguri Machie, Kobayashi Kenji and Harada Koichiro at the Tokyo College of Music High School and in 2017 won second prize in the Music Competition of Japan.

It was clear from her performance that Hokamura is a hugely accomplished player with a fine sense of musicality, but she had a rough night. A highlight of her performance was the way she played her cadenzas, which were written by Joseph Joachim and have been the go-to cadenzas for Mozart concerti since the 19th century, played by students all over the world. In fact, I would recommend that students watch her performance of the cadenzas, which were well-paced, accurate and quite enjoyable. During the second movement Hokamura seemed a little detached, playing with eyes closed, and then a major memory slip injected a feeling of unease into her performance. This movement is full of repeated sections, weaving into one thing and then another, and she simply took the wrong exit, then had to back-track. The third movement she played also with eyes closed, brightening a bit for the "Turkish" section. For her Kreisler piece, Risa also played "Tambourin Chinois," finding a sense of the gestures in this piece and also getting those very fast notes. Ioana Cristina Goicea, 25, of Romania was assertive and strong in the first movement of Mozart 5, and her collaboration with ECCO felt a little like a happy party. Goicea, who has studied with Petru Munteanu, Mariana Sirbu and Krzysztof Wegrzyn, is a veteran of the competition scene who in 2017 won First Prize in the Michael Hill International Violin Competition in New Zealand.

Goicea played with intention and a good sense of Mozart style, using the Joachim cadenzas, which at times felt a bit measured, but her presence with every note brought things off. In the second movement her opening melody was carefully shaped and attended to, without feeling overwrought. She had a moment when the bow when off-track, but on the whole this was a clean and solid performance. In the third movement she was able to inhabit the various characters and gestures within the music and bring them to life. For her Kreisler piece, Goicea played "La Gitana," starting with a great Gypsy beginning. With its many and varying tempi, this piece seemed a challenge to lead, but as it unfolded both orchestra and soloist were increasingly on the same page, and the ending was extremely well-coordinated and satisfying. Throughout the evening, the musicians of ECCO accompanied each violinist with sensitivity, earnest effort and a lot of energy. Classical Finals continue at 8 p.m. EST tonight at Butler University.

The AJ Hackett – the maverick brand that brought New Zealand and the world the exhilaration of bungy, now brings you the perfect reward for your fearlessness… beer. And it’s a screamer.

The AJ Hackett Screamer is a pilsner sold exclusively in Queenstown. It’s full-bodied, wide-eyed, and screams out to anyone with a racing heart or an invincible attitude - for those who think life should be measured in decibels. ‘Screamer’ perfectly complements any of the AJ Hackett products – the name, inspired by the guttural reaction that erupts from a complete momentary divorce of body and mind.

The design itself is a nod to a punk/skate vibe, and this informed our approach. The main influences can be attributed to 90s skate graphics and low-tech relaxed illustration techniques - originally hand drawn, and then digitised.

As a complete package, it is deliberately unfussy. Although the Cyan blue references the primary brand colour, we weren’t bound by a specific set of rules or guidelines. The founders themselves were arrested multiples times, and we wanted our beer brand to celebrate this renegade attitude, which lives on to this day.

Barely days after it was launched, Screamer was outselling other craft beers in Queenstown, two-to-one.

On Worksafe NZ it refers to the reciprocal agreement with the European Union, that essentially seems to say that if its Certified in Europe, its certified in NZ.

https://worksafe.govt.nz/topic-and-industry/electricity/appliances-and-fittings/core-requirements/international-electrical-mras/

It says "For New Zealand, the EU issued certification is recognised as constituting a New Zealand 'approval'.

Hence my question is am I ok to order these and put them in, and they meet the NZ standards.

I don't want to do it if the Insurance company would say they are not approved, but I cant quite understand the linkages here.

Any suggestions appreciated on who to ask, and what to consider here.

          Fundamental Analysis of NZD/USD for September 13, 2018      Cache   Translate Page      

NZD/USD has managed to push higher, having bounced off the 0.6500 support area with a daily close. So the pair is going to trade higher in the coming days. Despite soft economic reports from new Zealand this week, yesterday NZD managed to counter the preceding bearish trend in the pair.

Today New Zealand FPI report was published with a decrease to -0.5% from the previous value of 0.7% which triggered certain pullbacks in the process. Tomorrow Business NZ Manufacturing Index report is going to be published which previously was at 51.2 and a positive actual result of the economic report is expected to inject further bullish momentum in the process. Besides, RBNZ is not considering rate hikes as they want to stabilize their economy for better in the short and medium term.

On the other hand, amid a series of worse-than-expetced economic reports published recently, USD is quite weak against NZD in the process. Today US CPI report is going to be published which is expected to increase to 0.3% from the previous value of 0.2% and Core CPI is expected to remain unchanged at 0.2%. Moreover, Unemployment Claims report is expected to increase to 210k from the previous figure of 203k, Natural Gas Storage is expected to increase to 65B from the previous figure of 63B, and FOMC Members Quarles and Bostic are going to speak today regarding the upcoming interest rate decision and future monetary policies.

Meanwhile, USD has been struggling to gain momentum in the market due to recent worse economic reports whereas any positive figure in pending economic reports is expected to inject some pressure against NZD in the process. Otherwise, NZD may remain having an upper hand over USD.

Now let us look at the technical view. The price has pushed higher from a strong support area of 0.6500 area having Bullish Divergence in place which does indicate certain bullish momentum in the pair with target towards 0.6720 resistance area in the coming days before pushing lower with the trend again. As the price remains below 0.6720 area with a daily close, the bearish bias is expected to continue.

SUPPORT: 0.6500

RESISTANCE: 0.6720, 0.6850

BIAS: BEARISH

MOMENTUM: VOLATILE

Highland, UT -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/12/2018 -- LifeVantage AXIO - A Whole New Approach to Energy! AXIO takes a different approach to energy. Specially formulated to give energy to the mind, not just the body. Engineered with Nrf2 ingredients, it's designed to deliver more mental clarity, focus, and concentration without the jitters or caffeine crash.

http://www.lifevantage.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/17081001.02-US-AXIO-Product-Info-Sheets.pdf

There's good energy and there's bad energy. Sugary, caffeinated energy: BAD. Nrf2 engineered energy that naturally kicks the brain into gear without the extra sugar, jitters, or crash: GOOD. LifeVantage created AXIO with a different approach because they understand that when one is feeling tired or sluggish, it's their brain that needs a pick-me-up, not your hyperactivity levels. People need less fog and a more clarity, not a cattle prod. AXIO uses a proprietary blend of ingredients to wake the brain up, increase concentration, and deliver the right kind of energy, right when they need it without the added sugar, low-grade caffeine, or extreme sports packaging. http://g3development.lifevantage.com/products/axio-regular/

AXIO Benefits: Improves mental endurance & mental acuity, concentration & memory retention, Enhances neurotransmitter function and the brain's resilience to stress, Reduces mental fatigue & brain fog, Increases physical & mental energy while improving positive mood, A clean, low-calorie, low-carb, vegan formula that is BSCG approved and free of artificial colors, artificial flavors and artificial sweeteners, added sugars, GMOs and gluten.

LifeVantage Petandim for DOGS! Give Best Friend The Health He Deserves! Dog's dedicates their lives to making us happy. And there's nothing easy about seeing them age. That's why we created Petandim for Dogs. Using the same groundbreaking, anti-aging science as Protandim Nrf2 Synergizer™ in a dog-friendly formulation, Petandim delivers the health that best friend needs to stay active for longer. It's a human approach to healthier dogs. http://g3development.lifevantage.com/products/petandim-dogs/

"There is no evidence that dogs have the kind of complex emotional lives and value systems that we do. It's one reason why we love them so much, in fact. They are neither "good" nor "bad." They don't hold grudges, act in petty ways, or seek revenge. They read our moods, but not our minds."

Reviewed and approved by Animal Health Consultants, Petandim is designed to extend a dog's playfulness, happiness, and overall health. In other words, all that shoe chewing doesn't have to slow down. At the end of the day, if the science behind Protandim Nrf2 is good enough for humans (us), then it's good enough for your dog (the one who keeps begging for food under the table). Petandim is scientifically designed to deliver a wide range of benefits, including: A shinier coat, Increased playfulness, More energy, Supports joint health, Supports hearing and eyesight.

LifeVantage Science: LifeVantage is not a future breakthrough — they have proof it is happening now. They agree with leading researchers that extending human life is inevitable. However, they believe that in order to truly enjoy extreme longevity, they need to bio hack their health span.

LifeVantage specializes in a new science called Nutrigenomics; which is (1) Researching, (2) Testing, and (3) Creating products to address the biochemical effects of aging, with the ultimate goal of biohacking the human body to help people achieve optimal health as part of the normal aging process. In fact, we have 'Scientific Evidence' to show biohacking is possible. The National Institute of Aging (NIA) found that in male mice Protandim® Nrf2 Synergizer™ was the ONLY supplement Scientifically Proven to Increase lifespan by 7%. In plain English – we agree with leading researchers that extending human life is inevitable, but we also believe that in order to enjoy that increased lifespan, we need to lengthen our health-span. This science does not just help you FEEL GOOD, it lets you ENJOY LIFE—which also helps you feel good. http://g3development.lifevantage.com/biohackers/

LifeVantage is changing the view on aging. Looking for evidence? As scientists, so are they — and they've got mounds of it. When products work, the scientific community takes notice and comes to their own conclusions. Their products are tested in peer-reviewed published studies (23) from laboratories across the nation. Now they're using a groundbreaking new science called Nutrigenomics to help people bio-hack a healthier life. By studying the effects of nutrients and natural compounds on our genes, they're creating scientifically-backed products that support cognitive health and promote healthy aging on the cellular level.*
http://www.lifevantage.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/US-Protandim-Product-Sheet-V.01.pdf

Their Nutrigenomic products support the body's natural cellular function by targeting the main biochemical effects of aging, issues like oxidative stress, natural mitochondrial deterioration and more. By awakening the body's ability to rejuvenate itself on a massive scale — whether by up-regulating your genes' ability to produce their own antioxidants, the cells 'ability to produce mitochondria, or the guts' ability to regulate bacteria — they're helping people stay on top of the aging process while delivering the mental clarity and overall well-being they need every day to get the absolute most out of life. http://g3development.lifevantage.com/products/

Back to School - September 2018

Welcome to the Cyberbullying Research Center email newsletter! It's that time of the year again: Back to school! We're here to help you make it a great year. Below is an overview of what we've been up to over the last several months. We look forward to working alongside you in the new academic year and don't hesitate to reach out if we can be of assistance.
 
- Justin Patchin and Sameer Hinduja
Where We've Been Recently

It's been a busy travel season for us at the Cyberbullying Research Center. We continue to speak all around the world on these issues that we are so passionate about. Here are some examples of recent international trips:

•    Amman, Jordan. Justin did a series of presentations for the US State Department and US Embassy in Jordan.
•    Bergen, Norway. Sameer presented a keynote address at a conference for youth-serving organizations.
•    Bogota, Columbia. Sameer spoke at the "Women Working for the World" Conference.

And next month:

•    Auckland, New Zealand. Justin will speak at the "Online Safety on the Edge" conference co-sponsored by New Zealand's Netsafe and Australia's Office of the eSafety Commissioner. (more info)

In addition to these, we visited dozens of schools in 2017-2018 to talk with tens of thousands of students, educators, and parents about using technology with integrity. To see if we will be speaking near you sometime soon, or to bring us to your community, click here.
Standing up to Cyberbullying
New and Updated Resources

We recently updated many of our popular (and free!) fact sheets and resources. Check them out on our site under "Resources." We also wrote a brand new Top Ten list for teens called "Standing up to Cyberbullying: Top Ten Tips for Teens" with the goal of helping youth become upstanders when confronted with cyberbullying. You can download it here.
New Academic Papers

We recently published a few academic papers that you may be interested in:

Student Experiences with
Reporting Cyberbullying

Most students who are bullied do not report their experiences to adults. This was true 30 years ago when I endured middle school and our research shows it largely continues to this day. I remember being surprised (though maybe I shouldn’t have been) to learn from our first pilot study undertaken 15 years ago that fewer than 15% of those who had been cyberbullied told an adult about it (10% informed a parent while 5% reported it to the school). This made me realize right away that there was a story that needed to be told. And that we needed to do something to improve reporting.

Empower and Educate,
Don’t Just Create Panic

Last weekend a Facebook post by the Polk County (Florida) Sheriff’s Office went viral. As of this writing (less than a week later), the post had been shared more than 58,000 times (including by three of my personal Facebook friends, which is how I came to notice it). This wasn’t a post asking for the public’s help in locating a wanted fugitive or advising residents of the latest online phishing scam. Instead, it was a rant about youth and social media.

The message, while well-meaning, was misinformed and misguided.

Most Teenagers Aren’t
Asking for Nude Photos

A recent New York Times headline caught my attention: “Teenagers, Stop Asking for Nude Photos.” Sage advice, I must admit, but I wondered where this was coming from. In the article, Psychologist Lisa Damour argues that we have long been warning children about the dangers (reputational and potential legal consequences) of sending sexually explicit images, but have largely failed to impress upon them the inappropriateness of asking for such images. “Most schools and many parents already tell teenagers not to send sexualized selfies,” she writes. “But why don’t we also tell adolescents to stop asking for nude photos from one another?”

          Homem tenta roubar macaco de zoológico para presentear a namorada      Cache   Translate Page      
Macacos ficaram perturbados e estressados com a presença do jovem em sua área (Foto: Wikimedia/I, Luc Viatour)

 

Um jovem tentou roubar um animal do Zoológico de Wellington, na Nova Zelândia, e se deu mal: segundo o jornal New Zealand Herald, ele foi detido e condenado a dois anos e sete meses de prisão.

O caso ocorreu no dia sete de abril deste ano, quando John Owen Casford, de 23 anos, foi pego invadindo o zoológico. De acordo com as autoridades, o rapaz estava sob o efeito de drogas quando foi encontrado e tentava roubar um dos macacos-esquilo de Collins para dar de presente para a namorada.

Também conhecido como macaco-de-cheiro, o animal do gênero Saimiri costuma viver em florestas tropicais nas Américas e é pequeno, tendo em média pouco mais de 60 centímetros, sendo 40 centímetros só de cauda e o restante de corpo.

Apesar de não ter conseguido capturar uma das macaquinhas, Casford deu um baita susto nela: a pequena se machucou no encontro com o humano e ficou tão apavorada que passou um bom tempo escondida depois do ocorrido.

+ Jaguar escapa e mata seis animais em menos de uma hora em zoológico

Ainda segundo a polícia, o rapaz conseguiu arrombar dois cadeados para chegar na área dos macacos, cujo portão deixou aberto. Nenhum dos macacos fugiu no incidente. 

"Não sei o que aconteceu no cercado do macacos-esquilos, mas eles sabem", disse o juiz no julgamento de Casford. "O que eu sei é que, no dia seguinte, os animais estavam agitados, dois deles estavam machucados, e você tinha quebrado a perna, fraturados dois dentes, torcido o tornozelo e várias cicatrizes nas suas costas."

O juiz afirmou ainda que, meses depois, os macacos continuam a mostrar sinais de estresse relacionados ao episódio e condenou o jovem a dois anos e sete meses de prisão. Essa, no entanto, não é a primeira infração dele: nos últimos anos, Casford já admitiu ter batido em um homem na rua, ter atacado um estabelecimento na região e ter brigado com pessoas que lhe recusaram cigarros.

Yes I would like to talk to someone about this Your analysis is way off the mark Having a 6 month cut off for firms using the old expense claim is arbitrary figure. What are you going to do for subscribers who fall outside this and have just had their solution degraded. But still face a xero price increase. And who don’t want to go to the ridiculously expensive new solution I would also like to understand why your pricing is per user and not the more accepted per document. A quick analysis of the situation with my business is that it will cost me $50 per month to process about 12 transactions. That is crazy. I don’t care what your market analysis says and get annoyed that you have it so wrong Please contact me

          A SEA CHANGE IN THE SECURITY OF THE SOUTH PACIFIC / GEOPOLITICAL FUTURES      Cache   Translate Page      

A Sea Change in the Security of the South Pacific

Small countries have been caught in the current of great power politics.

By Jacob L. Shapiro


Concluding today is the 49th Pacific Islands Forum, an annual three-day summit that has gone broadly unnoticed by much of the world. The few headlines that managed to creep their way into continental news agencies concerned a minor spat between the host, Nauru, and China, whose delegation eventually walked out of a meeting Sept. 4. Most overlooked the fact that forum members agreed in principle to jointly augment the national security of Pacific island nations.

The agreement, called the Boe Declaration, has been in the works for a few months. Australia and New Zealand, the two strongest forum nations, hinted in July that a new regional security architecture would be announced at the recent summit. Outspoken advocates of the declaration, Australia and New Zealand want to strengthen the forum to counter China’s growing economic influence in this part of the world. Until recently, the biggest threats to the forum were run-of-the-mill internal problems such as civil unrest and natural disasters. But Canberra and Wellington want these island nations to prepare for worse.

The new declaration itself, like others before it, is almost uniformly unremarkable. It repeats previous declarations and offers platitudes about cooperation and information sharing. It identifies no country as a threat – if anything, parts of it are as much a criticism of U.S. efforts to undermine international institutions as they are a defense against Chinese intrusión.


 

Unlike others before it, however, the new declaration includes in a small section near the end wherein the forum members “recognize that national security impacts on regional security” and pledge to develop national security capacities accordingly. That is a sea change. The previous security framework, known as the Biketawa Declaration, is far more specific on the mechanism by which forum nations can intervene in the affairs of neighbors – Australia and New Zealand have used it in recent years to deploy forces to the Solomon Islands, Nauru and Tonga – but it is chiefly concerned with internal problems that require outside assistance. The Boe Declaration explicitly deals with the need for forum nations to develop capacities to resist external threats. The post-summit communique also notes that a detailed plan for implementation of the Boe Declaration will be completed by November.

As with all multilateral institutions, the challenge for the forum is that its members all have different national interests. The forum comprises 18 countries, and while most of them share a similar geographic identity as small island states in the South Pacific, they don’t necessarily share the same goals. Nauru, for example, still recognizes Taiwan, and barely trades with China. (It accounts for just about 1 percent of Nauru’s total imports and exports). That’s a far cry from a country such as Vanuatu, which owes half of its $440 million in foreign debt to China, which is also the island’s top source of imports and a top five export destination. Samoa and Fiji criticized Nauru for rocking the boat with China even as they were agreeing to boost national security capacities.

Even so, the Boe Declaration was adopted unanimously and so is a first step toward a more unified Pacific Islands Forum, with Australia and New Zealand playing a leading role in its cohesion. For all the talk of China’s ambitions, Australia and New Zealand are still in charge, dominating forum countries by almost every metric. The Boe Declaration reflects this balance of power even as it acknowledges what has now become clear – that these small nations are caught in the current of great power politics.

          Fundamental Analysis of NZD/USD for September 13, 2018      Cache   Translate Page      

NZD/USD has managed to push higher, having bounced off the 0.6500 support area with a daily close. So the pair is going to trade higher in the coming days. Despite soft economic reports from new Zealand this week, yesterday NZD managed to counter the preceding bearish trend in the pair.

Today New Zealand FPI report was published with a decrease to -0.5% from the previous value of 0.7% which triggered certain pullbacks in the process. Tomorrow Business NZ Manufacturing Index report is going to be published which previously was at 51.2 and a positive actual result of the economic report is expected to inject further bullish momentum in the process. Besides, RBNZ is not considering rate hikes as they want to stabilize their economy for better in the short and medium term.

On the other hand, amid a series of worse-than-expetced economic reports published recently, USD is quite weak against NZD in the process. Today US CPI report is going to be published which is expected to increase to 0.3% from the previous value of 0.2% and Core CPI is expected to remain unchanged at 0.2%. Moreover, Unemployment Claims report is expected to increase to 210k from the previous figure of 203k, Natural Gas Storage is expected to increase to 65B from the previous figure of 63B, and FOMC Members Quarles and Bostic are going to speak today regarding the upcoming interest rate decision and future monetary policies.

Meanwhile, USD has been struggling to gain momentum in the market due to recent worse economic reports whereas any positive figure in pending economic reports is expected to inject some pressure against NZD in the process. Otherwise, NZD may remain having an upper hand over USD.

Now let us look at the technical view. The price has pushed higher from a strong support area of 0.6500 area having Bullish Divergence in place which does indicate certain bullish momentum in the pair with target towards 0.6720 resistance area in the coming days before pushing lower with the trend again. As the price remains below 0.6720 area with a daily close, the bearish bias is expected to continue.

SUPPORT: 0.6500

RESISTANCE: 0.6720, 0.6850

BIAS: BEARISH

MOMENTUM: VOLATILE
