          Comment on Primary Season's Last Lap by Balthasar      Cache   Translate Page      
Re: The Great Weigantia Flame War Most of you probably don't know that I have this little thing I do, which is to get up and go down to the local Waffle House for coffee every day at five. There's a regular crowd that comes in at that hour, including a factory mechanic, an elderly bible-toting couple, a mixed-race pair of young studs that lecture us all on the joys of weed and pussy, another mechanic with a local body shop - our most ardent Trump defender - and a rotating cast of thousands who get caught up in the freewheeling conversation that ensues. The waitress staff, who serve also as moderators of a sort, range from the world-weary old-timer with the best sarcastic put-downs, to the wide-eyed country girl with bad teeth who's come to the city to take the only job she's qualified to do, to support her baby. A mixed group to be sure, but not terribly unlike all of those that wander into our little corner of the web here. Cross words do occasionally fly, as they will in such forums. Our older waitress Rhonda has a standing rule that anyone who gets personal has to pay their bill in full first, so that nobody gets to stomp out on it. Every once in a while, a new face will appear and insist, "no politics! no religion!", and we'll spend awhile in sullen silence until that person leaves. It's recognized as a fair request - most bars observe a similar ban for the obvious reason that drunks have a propensity for escalating arguments that others don't. These sorts of impromptu discussion groups pop up all the time in America, sorta like impromptu un-organized baseball games used to pop up in empty lots when my dad was a kid (before anal-retentive parents took over children's recreation). It's certainly not an exclusively American phenomena. There are similar scenes being played out worldwide, from the mosques of Iran to the tea houses in Japan, to the lunch breaks at the diamond mines in South Africa. But mine is the only country in the world where, when things get hot, someone invariably insists "it's my constitutional right to say what I think!", and everyone else has to agree. God Bless America, and don't forget to tip your waitress, or she'll bring holy hell on you. My point is, things are going to get hotter in US politics before this is all over. Trump has energized both sides with his rhetoric, and brought some extreme folks out of the woodwork that used to shy away from speaking their minds, at least when they were sober. But I'm all in favor of playing by "American" Waffle House rules: let the conversation flow freely, like kiddie pee at a water park, but compensate CW for the giant pain in the ass you're being. Figure about a buck per insult, eh? Surely there's a manic here somewhere that can add that all up for us. If that doesn't stop it, at least we'll know then that it ultimately benefits the group, right? CW will ultimately decide who gets culled, and who gets cold coffee...

Scientists working in South Africa say they've found the earliest known drawing. It was dug up in a cave where early humans apparently lived for thousands of years and left behind numerous artifacts. The drawing isn't what you'd call elaborate; it's a row of crosshatched lines along the smooth face of a rock that may have been a tool for making ocher. In fact, the red lines were made with red ocher. The pattern (with a little imagination) resembles a hashtag. What's remarkable is that it was apparently made about 73,000 years ago. That's tens of thousands of years older than similar drawings made in European caves. The researchers , led by Christopher Henshilwood of the University of Bergen in Norway, have previously found a sort of toolkit for making ocher at the site, known as Blombos Cave, that dates back 100,000 years. That evidence shows that early Homo sapiens were clearly making ocher a long time ago, though for what purpose is unclear. And they've found a piece of ocher from

          This is the world's oldest known drawing      Cache   Translate Page      

Around 73,000 years ago, humans used a chunk of pigment to draw a pattern on a rock in a South African cave. The recently discovered fragment of the rock is now considered to be the oldest known drawing in history. From Science News:

The faded pattern consists of six upward-oriented lines crossed at an angle by three slightly curved lines, the researchers report online September 12 in Nature. Microscopic and chemical analyses showed that the lines were composed of a reddish, earthy pigment known as ocher.

The lines end abruptly at the rock’s edges, indicating that a larger and possibly more complex version of the drawing originally appeared on a bigger stone, the researchers say. Tiny pigment particles dotted the rock’s drawing surface, which had been ground smooth. Henshilwood suspects the chunk of rock was part of a large grinding stone on which people scraped pieces of pigment into crayonlike shapes.

Crosshatched designs similar to the drawing have been found engraved on shells at the site, Henshilwood says. So the patterns may have held some sort of meaning for their makers. But it’s hard to know whether the crossed lines represent an abstract idea or a real-life concern.

          The Real Contagion Threat Is Political      Cache   Translate Page      

Authored by Tom Luongo,

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

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

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

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

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

Corps Insanity

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Okay, maybe that was the plan overall.

Rising Tides, Falling Boats

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

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

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

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

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

It is not working and thank the gods for it.

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

No one, actually, and that is the point.

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

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

Europe is balkanizing.

Cultural Suicide Postponed

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

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

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

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

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

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

And their losses are mounting.

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

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

          Scientists Date Ochre Pattern on South African Rock Fragment      Cache   Translate Page      
BERGEN, NORWAY—An international team of researchers led by Christopher Henshilwood of the University of Bergen have concluded that the red marks on a small stone fragment recovered from South Africa’s Blombos Cave were made by a human with a piece of ochre some 73,000 years ago, according to a report in The Guardian. Because the six thin lines crossed by three additional lines end abruptly at the edge of the stone, the scientists think they were part of a larger design on a grindstone cobble that helped process ochre rocks into powder used to make paint. Microscopic examination and experimental reproduction of the design revealed that some of narrow the lines had been made with single strokes of an ochre crayon, which must have been hard and pointed, while others were made with a rubbing motion. “When we reproduced the lines, you have to have a very firm hand and have to apply the ochre quite determinedly to make them look like that,” Henshilwood explained. Similar designs have been found in places across the world, including Australia, France, and Spain, he added, but archaeologists do not know what they might have meant to the people who made them.

          Review: Traditional Card Games:: Ender's Comprehensive Pictorial Review: New Collaboration Decks Produced by Art of Play      Cache   Translate Page      

by EndersGame

Collaboration Decks Produced by Art of Play

Art of Play is known for its fine collection of carefully curated decks of high quality playing cards, many of which are optimized for cardistry or for playing card games. Run by cardistry innovators and pioneers Dan and Dave Buck, it is not only a paradise for those who appreciate unique games, puzzles, and playing cards, but it is also the online label under which the Buck twins produce their own brand of playing cards. The Art of Play website has been carrying a wide range of literally hundreds of custom playing cards already since 2013, but in recent years Dan and Dave have more and more been making a unique contribution to the playing card industry by producing their own decks of cards, with many colourful and impressive designs that are especially popular with cardists.

To produce such excellence on a consistent basis, Dan and Dave need help. And that's why they continue to partner with talented artists from around the world, with whom they team up to produce their high quality and novel decks of playing cards. I've covered quite a large number of Art of Play's attractive decks previously, but this time I'd like to cover a number of decks that they have recently released, virtually all of which are collaborations with creative artists and design companies from around the world.

So if you're looking for a quality deck of playing cards - whether it's something classy for your poker night, something impressive for your family game of Hearts or Spades, something sophisticated for your card magic, or something eye-catching for your card flourishing - look no further: Art of Play has you covered with great decks like these.



ARTISTIC COLLABORATIONS

Flying Dog

As the name of this deck already indicates, the Flying Dog deck doesn't take itself too seriously, and nor should you. It should be noted, however, that the name actually is borrowed from the Flying Dog Brewery, which collaborated with this project. That means we can expect to see a few beers as we make our way through this deck, and we're not about to be disappointed.



But the real highlight of this unusual deck is that it was produced as part of a collaboration with surreal artist Ralph Steadman, whose name and signature is emblazoned on the tuck box. The artwork we see on the cover gives us a good idea of what we are in for with this deck, and will return on the King of Spades. Ralph's style of art is unusual to say the least, and a look at the small print on the tuck box sets the tone, where it says: "Don't draw Ralph! It's a filthy habit. Not." At least, I think that final word says "not"!

Whatever the case, this deck is really a miniature art collection that showcases some of Ralph Steadman's wacky art, hence the true title of the deck: Ralph Steadman Art Collection: Flying Dog Edition. A Welsh illustrator, Ralph Steadman has produced thousands of artworks in his distinctive and somewhat bizarre style. He is especially well known for his successful collaboration with writer Hunter Thompson, whose work he often illustrated. Besides many political and social caricatures, he also did illustrations for the Flying Dog Brewery.



The card backs pick up the same ink splattered design that's found on the back of the card box, but with the details now in a beige colour on an otherwise full red background. The observant will notice that it is actually a one-way design, despite this not being apparent at first glance.

The deck is billed as featuring a collection of 18 classic Steadman paintings, which is considerably more than the usual dozen court cards. To increase the size of our gallery, all the Aces get special treatment and have become works of art as well.



The surreal artwork on the court cards is hard to put into words, and really needs to be seen first-hand to be appreciated. No attempt has been made to create mirrored court cards, so that the Steadman paintings can take up the whole card, and so that we can enjoy them with the most detail possible on a playing card. The images themselves are simultaneously amusing and clever, and at times even slightly disturbing.



The number cards continue the splattered paint style, with each one being a unique image, and also facing in the same direction to continue the one-way feel of the court cards and Aces.



The Jokers are perhaps the most playful and bizarre of the lot, and one of them makes another obvious nod to the Brewery that contributed to this deck.



Thin crush stock ensures that the cards feel soft in your hands when admiring them or shuffling. A most unusual deck to be sure, and undoubtedly one that will be somewhat polarizing. But few will disagree that what we have here is a real work of art, even if this art isn't going to please everyone.



Art & Machine

One look at the tuck box of the Art & Machine deck, and you immediately get a sense of a blue-print or industrial design.

The back of the tuck box does us a wonderful favour by explaining the concept as follows: "This deck of cards is a look at four specific moments in the history of art and design as it has wrestled to incorporate machine technology (or push against it). Each suit in the deck focuses on one of these four moments—the new typography of the Bauhaus era, mid-century book cover design, the late 20th century silk-screened poster aesthetic, and contemporary art & design in the age of mobile."



The deck's creator, freelance designer & illustrator Ryan Hewlett, is also credited on the tuck box with a link to his personal website RyanHewlett.com, where you'll quickly find the minimalist x-logo that is on both the tuck box and the card backs.

The card backs have thin white borders - a brave decision when printing with USPCC given their lack of consistency in this department - and are otherwise filled with an all-orange canvas, besides Ryan's signature x-logo.



The four suits all focus on one moment in the history of art:
- Spades: the new typography of the Bauhaus era
- Hearts: the mid-century book cover design
- Clubs: the late 20th-century silkscreen poster aesthetic
- Diamonds: the contemporary art & design in the age of mobile



This may not say much to the average person that hasn't studied the history of art and design, but fortunately the cards do a good job of speaking for themselves, even if we don't always understand their language.



The pips look relatively ordinary, despite a clearly custom design that is consistent throughout the deck, but for the rest this entire deck is anything but ordinary.

Each card makes an individual statement about some aspect of art and design. The average person may need an interpreter to understand their significance and meaning, but it's clear that considerable thought and creativity has gone into each of them!



Produced under the direction of Professor Kelly Holohan, Ryan created this deck as a student MFA Project at the Tyler School of Art, as an exploration of some notable moments in art and design history. The ad copy describes it as "a visual representation of the history of modern art, design, and machine technology."



One of the extra cards included with deck gives us a working Table of Contents that is the key to this deck's arrangement.



As with most of the Art of Play decks, thin crush stock ensures good and soft handling as you enjoy this modern art gallery of designs, or even if you're a cardist who is happy to ignore the faces and enjoy playing around with the deck by relying on the strength of the stylish and minimalist card backs.



POP CULTURE COLLABORATIONS

Bruce Lee

Bruce Lee has made his debut on playing cards before, with a eye-catching black and yellow colour scheme that featured a dragon back design, and a very striking minimalist "black belt" stripe across the face of bright yellow cards. The original deck was created as a tribute for his 73rd birthday, and now Art of Play brings us a second version of the Bruce Lee deck (V2), in collaboration with Bruce Lee Enterprises.

Like the original deck, the tuck box is presented in a matt black finish, with the shadowy figure of Bruce Lee emerging from the darkness, with his signature in yellow ending any question we may have had in identifying him.



The back of the tuck box has a new look however, and offers us a quote: "Absorb what is useful. Reject what is useless. Add what is essentially your own." The previous deck already featured Bruce Lee quotes in small print on every card, and that is what we can expect here too, as the back of the box explains:

"Known to the world as a martial artist, actor, and philosopher; Bruce Lee compiled countless volumes on his way of seeing the world. From these thoughts are 52 quotes presented in this commemorative deck of playing cards from one of the finest minds of this past century."

A red Jeet Kune Do emblem - a hybrid philosophy of martial arts founded by Lee - serves as the tuck box seal, and will return later on the Ace of Spades. There's also full interior printing in yellow and black, which helps prepare us for the yellow and black colour scheme that this deck is about - the same colors as the legend’s famous yellow jumpsuit.



The dragon back design of the original deck has had a graphic make-over, with the elimination of a one-way BL monogram in the center. Now a two-way design gives greater prominence to the dragon heads, that produces a more aggressive look.



But the biggest change is with the faces of the cards. Instead of being a borderless bright yellow, with a quote in small print across the middle like a black belt, now the faces of the cards feature black rectangular panels with white borders. Each quote is in white capital letters, making it much easier to read, and has Lee's signature below it.



The only pips to be found are on the indices, and unlike the relatively standard fonts and shapes of the original version of the Bruce Lee deck, they now add to a sense of customization with a completely new look.



The two bonus cards give us a final quote from Lee: ("I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times".

A second ad card explains something of the Bruce Lee philosophy: "Bruce Lee's art was steeped in a philosophical foundation and did not follow long held martial traditions. Instead it had its core the ideas of simplicity, directness, and personal freedom."



The two Jokers - if they may even be called that - feature black-and-white photos of Lee in action.



This deck is a beautiful homage to a popular martial artist, and a worthy follow-up to the original. It shares enough with its predecessor, while still offering an entirely new look.

As for the handling, like Bruce Lee himself, your moves are going to be smooth and slick, with USPCC's crush stock finish ensuring that flourishes will be consistently good.



Third Man Records

Sticking with our yellow and black colour scheme, we move on to the Third Man Records deck This is a reprint of a deck that first appeared in 2015, but this time with a new design both for the card backs and for the tuck box.



Another collaboration, this time with Third Man Records, it is a tribute to the TMR record label, and was designed by the folks behind this brand.

Third Man Records was founded by Jack White as an independent record label in 2001, and opened up a location in Nashville in 2009, which is home to a record store, an intriguing novelties lounge, and more. The label is self described as "an innovator in the world of vinyl records and a boundary pusher in the world of recorded music, aiming to bring tangibility and spontaneity back into the record business."



The design team has done a fantastic job of capturing the essence of Third Man Records with an incredibly creative and novel tuck box, that besides the obvious yellow logo that stands out well against the black, uses black foil accents on a black background, to create both the look and feel of an actual vinyl record. It's definitely a show-stopper tuck-case that will get immediate attention!

The card backs are white bordered, picking up the simple white of the main image of three men. The face cards on the other hand are entirely black, with only white and yellow used for the text, pips, and designs that decorate them.

The Ace of Spades gets a particularly loving treatment, and has been made to look like turn-table record, complete with grooves.



The court cards feature rectangular panels that are also filled with grooves, to continue the overall theme. While they still retain some elements that identify them as characters, there's sufficient abstraction that turns them more into geometric shapes.



If you look closely, however, you will still find the traditional features of court cards present, such as scepters, swords, and flowers, in precisely the places you'd expect them. Also look for small details adorning their clothing, such as the tiny Third Man symbol, and lighting bolts.



While the main indices are bold and clear, the larger pips on the number cards are comprised of three lines, continuing the "groove-like" idea.



The two Jokers each are emblazoned with a large grooved lightning bolt, while the two bonus cards are both promotional cards for Third Man Records.



With thin-crush stock, the deck also feels as soft as butter in your hands, and it's a real pleasure to spring these cards. If you like some groove with your cardistry, this is undoubtedly a deck for you.



NATURE INSPIRED COLLABORATIONS

Bloc Playing Cards (Marble Edition)

Art of Play has done a number of collaborations, and with The Bloc deck (Marble Edition) they have produced the third in a series of decks from Bloc Playing Cards.



The first in the Bloc series was Rosewood, the second was American Pine.

All these decks are carefully designed to have the playing cards look like naturally textured rectangular blocks. The Rosewood and American Pine card backs look fantastic, but it was time to explore a surface other than wood. And so: Marble.



The tuck box immediately impresses with a letterpress-printed wrap-around design, that does look just like marble. This is largely courtesy of well-placed gold foil accents, which really enhance the visual impact, and give the convincing illusion of a marble textured surface. Gold lettering in small print on the front of the tuck box adds to the luxurious look.

The card backs are inspired by the same textured look, but have a unique design that offers a fresh interpretation of the surface, with a different pattern than the tuck box. It's borderless - of course - and given the need to be authentic, it is a one-way design. Without the benefit of the gold accents from the tuck box, the card backs don't look quite as impressive, but that's just because we've been spoiled with gold in our marble when greeting this deck for the first time.



The faces are all standard, with some notable exceptions, starting with the Ace of Spades and Ace of Clubs, both of which have a central pip that has been given a marble-like texture.



The two Joker cards are of special interest as well, with an alternative borderless Marble design. To round things off, there's a double backer and a blank faced card.



These are certainly very unique cards, that stand apart from the frenzied colours and artistry of many other designs. As the Bloc team explains their vision:

"Why are all playing cards based on graphic design? With Bloc, we challenge the thought that playing cards need to be created with meticulous line work and illustration. We're inspired by nature. Bloc transforms playing cards into borderless, edge-to-edge images of natural texture. After our first two runs of American Pine and Rosewood sold out within days, we're now pushing into stone and beyond. "



They are particularly well suited to cardistry, since the team at Bloc has a collective 20+ years of cardistry experience, and it is a big factor that determines their design. As they themselves explain: "With no borders to get in your way, these Blocs make all of your fans, cuts, and springs that much bigger and impactful. "



The thin-crush stock from USPCC will ensure that card handling is smooth and satisfying, no matter how these cards are put to use. And with only 1000 copies produced in a limited addition, I can see these quickly being sold out.



Green Wheel

Art of Play have previously done a collaboration with DKNG Studios from California, which produced the delightful DKNG decks. These twin decks in red and blue, named Red Wheel and Blue Wheel respectively, also came inside a beautiful laser engraved wooden case as part of the attractive DKNG Gaming Set, and were intended as a fresh interpretation of the classic Bicycle rider back, with a bicycle design being prominent.

This popular deck now heads to a new eco-friendly colour scheme as the Green Wheel deck. The tuck box has a very similar look to the original deck, but has a muted brown paper bag look. The original decks already had a matt finish like this deck, but that effect is amplified here in the Green Wheel deck with the use of brown colours.



A custom seal in vibrant green gives a hint as to what we'll find inside. Anyone familiar with the classic Red Wheel and Blue Wheel decks will immediately recognize the design of the card backs, which are now presented in a stark green. The Bicycle influence is clearly evident, and despite the bold design, the green colour ensures that it still has a natural look.

The card backs may look symmetrical, but if you observe the corners closely, you'll see that all four suits are represented, meaning that it is a very clever and subtle one-way design that will escape notice from most. Like the tuck box and Jokers, small skulls are also featured on the card backs.



One of the things I loved most about the original Red Wheel and Blue Wheel decks were the pips, which were split in half and used metallic gold for the Red deck and metallic silver for the Blue deck.

The split-pip design is the same here, but now has two tones of brown for the Spade/Club pips to keep us close to our roots, down to earth, and environmentally friendly; while there's a lovely combination of green and gold for the Heart/Diamond pips.



Unlike the previous decks, there's no metallic inks to be seen here, however, and it wouldn't be in keeping with the concept of a more natural look either.



One of my favourite cards is the Ace of Spades, with a gorgeous illustration of a bicycle inside the giant two-tone pip. In fact, all the Aces are stunning examples of clean and stylized design.

For the rest the graphic design is inherited entirely from its popular predecessors, but using green and brown as the chief colours.



This deck has a very different feel from the original Red Wheel and Blue Wheel decks, and yet very clearly belongs to the same family, with a unity of design, and the same thin-crush stock for good handling.



Unlike its more classy brothers that preferred to present themselves with gold and silver accessories, however, this is the more down-to-earth and outdoorsy member of the family, that prefers to go on hikes and spend time in nature. Comfortable and casual, it will also feel right at home in the hands of every cardist and card player.



OTHER COLLABORATIONS

Off The Wall

The expression "off the wall" means unconventional, unusual, surprising, different, and that's certainly a good description of Art of Play's Off The Wall deck.

The ad copy describes the concept of this deck as follows: "These rebel playing cards are inspired by 80s surf and skate culture in sunny California. The radical design is off the wall and bursting to be played with!"



It's an apt description, and the tuck box already screams "unconventional", with a very bold choice of colours that include a vibrant blue, orange, and yellow, along with some black, and finished off with silver foil accents for the title of the deck and parts of the artwork. I knew I was going to love this new deck as soon as I saw the colours, because I've always been a big fan of combinations of bright orange and blue. Yes it's loud and dashing, but isn't that exactly what a lot of cardistry is all about?

After making our way past the custom Art of Play seal and gaining access to the cards themselves, we are confronted with a design that continues the lively style of the tuck box. This deck was designed by Studio Muti in South Africa, and perhaps there's some tribal roots that account for the energy and vividness of the design and colours. But the abstract shapes and bright colours work perfectly for the stylish borderless backs, and ensure that our flourishes are not going to go unnoticed. Fans and spreads look particularly attractive in both directions courtesy of the creativity of the lively and symmetrical card-backs.



From the card backs we turn our attention to the faces, starting with the Ace of Spades. The style here has a juvenile and casual feel about it, and yet the details and colours that reprise the main design show that us that there is nothing childish or accidental about what we are seeing here.

Fans of custom designs will be pleased to know that all the Aces have adopted a similar over-sized pip that shows off the main design pattern in the same way.



The court cards continue this style, with oversized faces that have a hand-drawn feel, and yet retain symmetry and make a stylistic statement that bursts with sunshine and energy.

The colour used for the Hearts and Diamonds has a orange tinge to it, in keeping with the rest of the deck, and giving us a sense of sunny days, full of energy and vitamin C.



The pips on the number cards, including the font used for the indices, continues the overall surf-skate theme with its deliberately styled casual look, and ensures that the entire deck feels customized and works together well as a whole.

Besides a handy double backer, this deck also features two matching Jokers, and a colourful ad card.



While functional, the attraction of this deck is really all about the colours and vibrant patterns on the card backs, court cards, and Aces. These are the main actors, and there's much to enjoy when giving them our full attentoin.



This deck also handles well for cardistry too, since it uses USPCC's thin crushed stock. It's definitely one of my current favourites for card flourishing, and should appeal to anyone who likes a bold and colourful style.



Cubeline

Strictly speaking the Cubeline deck is not a collaboration, since it was created independently of Art of Play, and is simply being offered by them.



That means that we need to put the spotlight on Cubeline's creator, and that is cardist Bas John. Bas John has more than 10,000 followers on Instagram (link), where you'll find some great photos and mesmerizing cardistry moves.

His Cubeline deck presents itself in a low-key colour scheme of black and white, but it is all about the graphic design. Central, of course, is the cube.



The back of the tuck box introduces us to the main concept, which features the curious card backs: a simple black and white picture consisting entirely of black lines that depict cubes.

It's only when we look at this image again ... and again ... that we begin to notice how it functions as an optical illusion. Are those cubes popping out of the card or popping into the card?! Look, and look again!



This isn't the first deck to be based on an optical illusion, and Bas himself acknowledges that the Stripe deck from Dealersgrip was a partial inspiration. Famous artist M.C. Escher is also noted as an influence.

What also catches our eyes with this deck are the customized court cards, which are clearly inspired by traditional designs, but have a simplified and minimalist look that dispenses with complex artwork and gives us smiley faces as the main point of interest. A simple red and black colour scheme ensures that we won't get too caught up with colours, but can focus on enjoying the design.



As for the cards themselves, the pips don't draw attention to themselves too much, with the usual black and red colour scheme, although they are flatter in shape than normal, which is chiefly noticeable with the Spades, so there is customization here as well.



As for the handling, since these cards weren't produced under the Art of Play label, but by Bas John himself, it's not surprising that he's turned to a European publisher to produce his deck: Cartamundi. These decks have been produced with Cartamundi's True Linen B9 finish, a relatively new finish that many consider optimal for cardistry.



Our smiley minimalism is found in its wildest extreme on our two Jokers, because that's all that you'll find on these cards: a simple smiley face. Two gaff cards also come with this deck (a blank faced card and a double backer).



Especially when compared with USPCC's thin crush stock, these cards feel very thick - even thicker than a standard Bee stock deck - and yet they are incredibly soft and smooth.

Right out of the box, the cardist will be surprised and impressed at how soft they feel, and there's no need to break these in before taking them through their paces in springs and other flourishes.



CONCLUSION

I continue to be impressed with Art of Play and the decks that they are putting out. I use playing cards for a variety of different purposes, including playing card games like poker and other classics, as well as for card magic and card flourishing. With their background in cardistry and magic, Dan and Dave Buck have a lot of expertise with playing cards, and know exactly the kind of quality in looks and handling that a good deck of cards needs. Cardists can be confident that Art of Play's carefully curated collection only includes the very best patterns, colours, and designs that will serve cardists well, and that anything produced under Dan and Dave's own label first has to meet their own exacting standards for visual aesthetics and performance.

By collaborating with world class artists and creative thinkers, Dan and Dave continue to ensure that their growing catalogue includes fresh new designs that are the kind of thing that consumers today are looking for. The decks featured in this review are prime examples of what they are contributing to the playing card industry. And all of these creative decks are matched with high quality materials and tuck boxes, with durable air cushioned cards that ensure durability as well as smooth and consistent performance.

Certainly some designs are already tried and true, like the Green Wheel deck, the Third Man Records deck, and the Bruce Lee deck, all of which build on the success of earlier versions. But there's also some very original and new concepts, particularly my favourite: the effervescent and vibrantly coloured Off The Wall deck. And of course there are artistic decks like the Flying Dog deck, which is effectively a miniature gallery of Ralph Steadman art, and the Art & Machine deck, which largely defies categorization beyond being a sophisticated art project.

Recommendation

Whether your interest is in card games, card magic, card flourishing, or even just card collecting, you're almost certain to find some treasures in Art of Play's growing collection, and the decks reviewed here are fine examples of what they offer. If you enjoy quality playing cards, puzzles, or games, then you definitely need to check out whether they can help improve the tools in your hands when you are at play. After all, these guys have turned play into an art!

          Researchers Discover Ancient "Hashtag"      Cache   Translate Page      
Scientists working in South Africa say they've found the earliest known drawing. It was dug up in a cave where early humans apparently lived for thousands of years and left behind numerous artifacts. The drawing isn't what you'd call elaborate; it's a row of crosshatched lines along the smooth face of a rock that may have been a tool for making ocher. In fact, the red lines were made with red ocher. The pattern (with a little imagination) resembles a hashtag. What's remarkable is that it was apparently made about 73,000 years ago. That's tens of thousands of years older than similar drawings made in European caves. The researchers , led by Christopher Henshilwood of the University of Bergen in Norway, have previously found a sort of toolkit for making ocher at the site, known as Blombos Cave, that dates back 100,000 years. That evidence shows that early Homo sapiens were clearly making ocher a long time ago, though for what purpose is unclear. And they've found a piece of ocher from

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

          The Real Contagion Threat Is Political      Cache   Translate Page      

Authored by Tom Luongo,

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

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

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

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

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

Corps Insanity

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Okay, maybe that was the plan overall.

Rising Tides, Falling Boats

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

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

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

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

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

It is not working and thank the gods for it.

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

No one, actually, and that is the point.

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

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

Europe is balkanizing.

Potential Post-EU map of Europe: Source @scottskingharry

Cultural Suicide Postponed

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

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

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

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

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

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

And their losses are mounting.

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

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

          This is the world's oldest known drawing      Cache   Translate Page      

Around 73,000 years ago, humans used a chunk of pigment to draw a pattern on a rock in a South African cave. The recently discovered fragment of the rock is now considered to be the oldest known drawing in history. From Science News:

The faded pattern consists of six upward-oriented lines crossed at an angle by three slightly curved lines, the researchers report online September 12 in Nature. Microscopic and chemical analyses showed that the lines were composed of a reddish, earthy pigment known as ocher.

The lines end abruptly at the rock’s edges, indicating that a larger and possibly more complex version of the drawing originally appeared on a bigger stone, the researchers say. Tiny pigment particles dotted the rock’s drawing surface, which had been ground smooth. Henshilwood suspects the chunk of rock was part of a large grinding stone on which people scraped pieces of pigment into crayonlike shapes.

Crosshatched designs similar to the drawing have been found engraved on shells at the site, Henshilwood says. So the patterns may have held some sort of meaning for their makers. But it’s hard to know whether the crossed lines represent an abstract idea or a real-life concern.

As in South African politics generally, Africans were hanging back, resentful but reticent, hiding behind white spokesmen who had shouldered the job of defining black grievances and goals. For liberal whites, verbal protest and symbolic racial mixing were seen as the outer limit of action. Apartheid was defined…

[Daily Maverick] Exactly one year ago, British PR firm Bell Pottinger received its final death-knell. On 12 September 2017, it went into administration, the firm's collapse directly precipitated by its work for the Gupta family in South Africa. This week, it was revealed that the man who chaired the British PR industry's probe into Bell Pottinger, Francis Ingham, had been personally threatened by South African "thugs". And while the firm itself may no longer exist, the dodgy practices it brought to South Africa's public di

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

Scientists have come across what they claim to be the earliest-known human drawing in South Africa.

The etching, reminiscent of a hashtag, was drawn with an ochre crayon on silcrete rock, and was discovered in Blombos Cave, which is located 300 kilometres (186 miles) west of Cape Town.

It's estimated to be 73,000 years old, predating previously known abstract and figurative drawings by humans from Africa, Europe and Southeast Asia by at least 30,000 years. 

The results of the discovery were published in the journal Nature by researchers from Europe and South Africa, including Francesco d’Errico, Karen L. van Niekerk, Laure Dayet, Alain Queffelec, and Luca Pollarolo. Read more...

          Mandela Effect Explained by Parallel Universe and Multiverse Theory      Cache   Translate Page      
What if I tell you, that its possible for a person to have this strong belief that an event happened in the past only to later realize that that belief was false? Or that there is another “you”, somewhere in a parallel universe just like ours who is totally the opposite of who you are?

This phenomenon is known as the “Mandela Effect” and many people believe it’s the result of some kind of merging between parallel realities.  Whether or not that’s the case, join the Universe Inside You to find out.

It all began with the story of one man known as Nelson Mandela. Nelson Mandela was a South African anti-apartheid revolutionary, political leader, and philanthropist who was imprisoned in the 80s. That’s when things get interesting.

Sonic Academy Progressive Trance with Protoculture TUTORiAL | 2.36 GB
Another week and another big course from Sonic Academy. This time we welcome back Armada's South African psy-trance heavyweight Protoculture for a massive How To Make course in Progressive Trance.
This detailed course will take you from the all important kick, right the way through to creating a radio edit and mastering the track yourself, giving you an insight into the tips and tricks Nate Raubenheimer has amassed over the years producing huge tunes that have gained him global success and admiration of his peers.

The end result is a massive, pumping Progressive Trance track that will put a big grin on any fan of this genre!

We have also teamed up with Armind to offer an amazing remix competition of this track officially called 'Asphalt' and to be released in the new year in the very label founded by Mr Trance himself Armin Van Buuren .

So it's over to you guys as we are offering a chance for one of our subscribers to get their production released, with the best remix coming out on Armind founded by Armin Van Buuren, gaining some global exposure, and of course, some great prizes from Sonic Academy.

We think we have one of the best music-making communities anywhere, so show us what you've got!

O.M.G!!! Are you kidding me??? No wonder I fear Nigerians so much! I know i'm wrong by generalising, BUT! then again better to generalise THAN! Be sorry or even worse DEAD! You never hear ANY! Good things about them over hear in South Africa, other than "sex" of which is kind of played out if you ask me. I'm so glad you are alive and hopefully well, trust me when I say GOD was with you that dreadful night, you could've been MURDERED! Like my cousin, it pains me to share this but what the hell?
(SUMMARY OF HER TRAGIC RUNNING WITH A HEARTLESS KILLER BELOW)
she was married to a nigerian who wore a mask of a "God Fearing Pastor" after a few years all hell broke loose, she was brainwashed into turning her back against us HER family, she ended up selling and using drugs, running the streets of HILLBROW! (infamous inner part of JHB) she would run away when she saw us with police and hopped from one building to the other. When she was about 3 months pregnant, she tried leaving her Nigerian husband (we were told by her drug using friends)
She was chopped and placed into a rubbish bag tucked in a sports bag!!! With a written NOTE! Written along these lines..."she had it coming, no Whore messes with me and my stuff and lives to tell the tale". To make matters worst the gruesome bag was delivered at my late Grandmother's door step!!! She suffered from a mild-stroke, that's what the doctors told us, and she never recovered since. To some this might sound fictional BUT! It's all TRUE it happened to my family and this is the exact reason I fear NOT! hate Nigerians. Sorry...

The second-biggest city in South Africa has been named the second most gay-friendly city in the world in a survey by travel website Expedia Australia (Sydney is number one).
According to the travel agency, Cape Town combines breathtaking natural sights with plenty of gay-friendly bars, clubs and accommodation to choose from and for all budgets. Visit the city in February for the two-week-long Cape Town Pride.

2. Curaçao, The Caribbean
Named the best new gay tourist destination in 2009 by the travel agency TripOut Gay, the Dutch Caribbean island is seen as a small version of the European country, with its relaxed attitude, coupled with paradise beaches and all-year-round sun.

          Why not being first might be your biggest advantage      Cache   Translate Page      
One of the philosophies I struggled with in my formative years was from a great basketball movie, “White men can’t jump”. It went something like this:

“Sometimes when you lose you actually win and sometimes when you win you actually lose, and sometimes when you win or lose you actually tie, and sometimes when you tie you actually win or lose. ”


Although it frustrated me then, in retrospect, I can see how this is applicable in business and is probably most painful when you think you’ve won… only to be beaten at the punch.

But what about the more positive flip-side – when being second actually gives you an advantage?

 It’s very thought-provoking and inspirational. The author considers the high value placed on innovation and being first, and then proceeds to provide a strong argument why being a fleet-footed follower can give a business an advantage over first-movers in that sphere.

Amongst the examples of these types of successes he cites:

  1. AltaVista -> Google
  2. VisiCalc -> Lotus 123 -> Excel
  3. Netscape -> Internet Explorer
  4. IBM PC -> Compaq -> Dell
  5. Friendster –> Facebook
  6. Blackberry –> iPhone

If you’re like me, the companies listed on the right hand will be far more familiar [and perceptibly successful] than those on the left.

The success of the “fast followers” isn’t attributed to any single factor, but the failure of the “first-mover” is often linked to “inferior management decisions”.

So does that mean that failure of the first-movers is more important than the decisions of the followers?

I don’t know if I would agree with that. After all, being a first-mover comes not only with the necessary innovation, but requires visionaries who can pave the way in leading a business [and sometimes an industry] where no-one has gone before. Bad decisions are inevitable as are some failures, but these are generally high-quality people just to get there in the first place.

Surely there must be more than the “fast followers” did to end up in front? I’d say luck has something to do with it, for sure, but I’d also think they learned from the leaders’ mistakes and that they learned from other [unrelated] industries. They must have to have stayed the course and overtaken the leaders.

Nevertheless, there are some excellent lessons for entrepreneurs [South African entrepreneurs take note!] noted in the article:

  1. Never stop innovating
  2. Build a well-rounded management team early
  3. Value sales and marketing talent as much as technical talent
  4. React quickly to disruptive technologies or business models
  5. Don’t be too proud to imitate when it makes sense

I think all of us underestimate the fourth point and often dismiss the fifth one.

So think about it – even if you weren’t first in your field, you’ve still got a chance to be the best! What is it that will set you apart from the rest?

You’re probably closer to the answer than you realise.

          Doodling is 73,000 years old      Cache   Translate Page      

Don't worry about your kids drawing on the walls. It turns out they're following an example that dates back 73,000 years.

Seven years after discovering a set of cross-hatched red marks on a piece of stone, scientists are ready to declare them the world's first drawing. First discovered in South Africa in 2011, the marks, called "L13," are ambiguous enough that they couldn't be sure whether they were naturally formed or purposefully scrawled. But after analyzing the materials that make up those marks, researchers have determined that they were put there by an early human.

In a paper published Wednesday in the journal Nature, the scientists explain that the marks were drawn using a red ochre "crayon." Although ochre was used for many things by ancient peoples, the nature of the markings are enough to determine that this was an artistic endeavor — humanity's first. The previous oldest-known drawings are about 9,000 years younger than this one, Gizmodo reported, though there are human-made engravings that go back even further.

L13 is just a few inches long, but judging by the way the marks cut off abruptly, researchers note that "the pattern was probably more complex and structured in its entirety." We may never know the original artist's vision for this drawing, but you can read more about L13 at Gizmodo.

Scott Morrison deserves a chance as PM. His work is cut out for him, as he negotiates chaff thrown up by Turnbull and mates. Turnbull is still attacking Dutton, running a commentary from NYC but declining to be interviewed by 3AW. A 9 y/o child grandstands over the Australian National anthem, taking the knee because she feels that the anthem should not say Australians are young and free. She feels Australians are not young. She also does not like Australia being described as fair. She feels that a fair go refers to colour, not appropriate odds. Such an opinion is not normally newsworthy, but the child has academic parents who 'inform' her bias. For the record, the anthem is fine. Australians should proudly recite it. 

Recently I've spoken to some young people on touchy subjects. One sixteen year old boy felt Turnbull was a good PM and did not have to be rolled. Another twelve year old girl feels that Serena was hard done by, by Mark Knight's cartoon. It is ok to have opinions, but they should be backed up by more than feelings. Turnbull betrayed his constituents and backers by outsourcing policy for power. He has cost Australia $billions in lost opportunity and his continued presence was going to place Bill Shorten in the PM's position. Further  to secure the PM's position, Turnbull lied about Tony Abbott. Serena was wrong to receive coaching during her match, and the code violation penalties were appropriate. She was wrong to blame sexism, or to threaten the umpire's future in the code. What young people see in either is probably related to appalling low standards of reporting. 

Serena Williams whispered to Osaka that the boos Osaka received after winning the grand slam event of the US Open were not for her. It was the most gracious thing Serena has said since the start of that match, and hints at her greatness as a player. But why was it whispered? And why were her ridiculous complaints spoken? 
From my article on Quora
What are the effects of the lack of education?
A research grant on gender neutral surf boards

= =
A daily column on what the ALP have as a policy, supported by a local member, and how it has 'helped' the local community. I'll stop if I cannot identify a policy. Feel free to make suggestions. Contact me on FB, not twitter. I have twitter, but never look at it.

Gabrielle Williams was appointed Parliamentary Secretary for Carers and Volunteers, working with the Minister for Housing, Disability and Ageing and the Minister for Families and Children. Williams was given those titles when elected in 2014. It is difficult to find what value she has been to Dandenong, but clearly the ALP see her as the future. The Andrews government is spending $2.8 million on biodiversity. As part of the project, students in Dandenong are being given $4500 to provide seating for them while they grow a garden preserving biodiversity. The garden includes flora sourced locally. It is nice students can sit while they garden together. One imagines the seats will have appropriately placed plaques with the minister's name. Do you approve of the lessons learned by your child as they sit on the minister's name and replant local flora for biodiversity? What does this teach children about biodiversity? How might it be viewed in terms of immigration? Does multiculturalism promote cultural diversity? What about gender diversity being locally sourced? Should the word 'biodiversity' appear in the national anthem? 

As part of the November 24th Vic election campaign I have a petition I want to bring before the Opposition Leader Matthew Guy. I believe Matthew will be the next premier of Victoria and so I am petitioning him as I raise the issues of Employment, Crime and Education in Dandenong. I am also seeking money for my campaign. I don't have party resources, and so my campaign is on foot, and on the internet. Any money I receive that is not spent on the campaign will go to Grow 4 Life. I am asking questions like "What do you love about Dandenong?" and "If you could change something in Dandenong to make it better, what would it be?" I'm not limiting the questions to state issues. I'm happy to discuss anything, and get things done.
I am a decent man and don't care for the abuse given me. I created a video raising awareness of anti police feeling among western communities. I chose the senseless killing of Nicola Cotton, a Louisiana policewoman who joined post Katrina, to highlight the issue. I did this in order to get an income after having been illegally blacklisted from work in NSW for being a whistleblower. I have not done anything wrong. Local council appointees refused to endorse my work, so I did it for free.

"L-O-V-E" is a jazz song written by Bert Kaempfert and Milt Gabler for American singer-pianist Nat King Cole's 1965 album L-O-V-E (the last album released before Cole's death on February 15, 1965). The song had already been an instrumental track on Kaempfert's Blue Midnight album in 1964. Nat King Cole also recorded L-O-V-E in Italian, French, German and Japanese. I wanted to make a love offering for Valentine's Day. This seems a goody http://conservativeweasel.blogspot.com.au/2012/02/love-nat-king-cole.html

Some things should not happen, but they do. Iran is backing terror around the world, including NK. NK have not developed nuclear weapons by accident. But to be fair, Iran did not give NK the technology to pin a flag on the sun. That was entirely home grown. 

Proposed citizenship reform is revealed to be a fad which does not address issues. The so called reform is to have new citizens competent in English. But the issue is law breaking among new immigrants, not bad grammar. 

A Californian writer, Richard Stockton, posts a series of lies about Australia's history regarding Aboriginals. Among his claims is one that the "stolen generations" began in 1830's. In fact, ten people have not been identified as 'stolen' since 1788. Everyone born in  1830 is now dead. Europeans are not to blame for that. Diseases that vectored from Europe were terrible. But settlers often tried to care for and help Aboriginals and the reason why any Aboriginal culture is known today is because some early settlers and missionaries tried to help, not murder. But sadly, the Aboriginal industry of today exploits Aboriginal peoples for political ends, victimising Aboriginal peoples, even as that industry claims to help. 

A 19 yo Chicago teen is found dead in a freezer. Apparently too intoxicated to have gotten in without help. Searchers were prevented from looking while she was alive. 

US state department still seems gripped with anti semitic positions. What will the ground look like when Trump has drained the swamp? 

Dan Andrews spends hundreds of thousands of dollars of taxpayer money on his personal Facebook Page, boosting posts. What else is he spending big on? 

Special laws are being touted to prevent debate on Same sex marriage ahead of the postal vote. NSW Liberal government working through fair trading move to prevent elderly people from being exploited with retirement home contracts. 

I am a decent man and don't care for the abuse given me. I created a video raising awareness of anti police feeling among western communities. I chose the senseless killing of Nicola Cotton, a Louisiana policewoman who joined post Katrina, to highlight the issue. I did this in order to get an income after having been illegally blacklisted from work in NSW for being a whistleblower. I have not done anything wrong. Local council appointees refused to endorse my work, so I did it for free.

We must vote for Hillary now, before she collapses completely. Don't worry about today's mishap. What happened was Harambe needed to talk to her about the direction her campaign is taking. Everything is good now. She won't need to stay with Harambe until after she is elected.

Abbott's brilliance is in stark contrast to Turnbull's much-vaunted intelligence

David Morrison seems to represent the finest values of the Turnbull administration. He doesn't seem agile, or smart. He doesn't seem to be the same one invited to the party. But he stands for something. 'Be all you can be' applies to him, except competent or responsible.

Is this pre plebiscite stance of Bill the same he will adopt at Plebiscite, or, as with last election, is he saying something different now, to what he will do then?

vote for Clinton is a vote for hatred, for class envy, for division. Clinton wants to divide USA. Trump wants to unite USA. Trump wants to make America great again. If you vote, let that inform your decision.

Michael Kroger was asked about this on Sky this morning. His answer was loyal and masterful. "I think the Turnbull government has been good. I have heard others talk about achievement, but the Abbott government followed from an ALP administration and they needed to make more changes. Turnbull followed a Liberal government and change wasn't needed."

Change wasn't needed. Except the Liberal Party were desperate to end Turnbull's undermining.

I posted on that and was told by one person that Turnbull was more popular now than Abbott ever was. I asked the person about their view. Turns out they don't like the Liberal Party. Turnbull is the leader for the Liberals if you don't like that party.

Don't call it aid. It is Turnbull dollars. Aid is used to prop up corrupt governments. Turnbull dollars go straight to the source. Aid money is diverted by terrorists. Turnbull dollars will never be diverted from terrorists. Turnbull dollars are the smart, agile currency that literally slips through fingers.
For some, at the moment, the Sex Party has more credibility. 
=== from 2015 ===
 None for 2015 .. because of Melbourne promotional trip
From 2014
Oscar Pistorius acquitted of murder. A grave injustice has happened with this verdict, as yet incomplete. Pistorius murdered his girlfriend. He just wasn't convicted of it. Shades of OJ Simpson's unfair acquittal. Today is the anniversary of Steve Biko's death from an evil apartheid regime. Injustice is injustice for all time. One feels for Reeva's loved ones. A cohabiting couple must be assumed to be aware of each other's presence. A gun owner has a greater responsibility for the safe operation of the weapon. The argument that the prosecution could not prove so beyond a reasonable doubt is wrong. Had Oscar had less support, as with a normal person, he would not have been able to argue as he has. The evidence would have been deemed conclusive. It will be a complete disgrace if Pistorius ever participates in elite sport again, or gets less than a maximum sentence for manslaughter. 

A reminder of the importance of saying 'no' to constitutionalised racism. Australia is culturally diverse and thrives from that diversity. Should Australia decide to separate Australians by race it won't address the needs of people in need, but will instead become a tool of division. There are no admirable apartheid regimes anywhere in the world or in history. Israel doesn't divide by race, but Palestine does. South Africa did. The Conservative Voice will similarly oppose any reintroduction of slavery. Even if the US Democrats, or ALP really want it. A reminder of what a 'Yes' vote in Scotland might mean .. The Queen could abdicate the Scottish throne in favour of Charles, while keeping the English Throne for William .. think about that. But more seriously, those who favour a 'yes' vote claim that the disadvantages are overstated. Precisely which disadvantages are acceptable? 

Gillard faces a royal commission and lies about her memory of activity. One hopes that she is taken to task for lying. She corruptly created a slush fund from misappropriated money involving a Union employing stand over tactics to extort money from business. Some of that money was used to build her home. Yet there is no one ever who forgot getting caught for theft when they were young and naive. It becomes foundational to their character. And so it is with Gillard. A thief and liar. By way of contrast Arthur Sinodinos is fronting the corrupt body of the ICAC again. Sinodinos has not been accused of doing anything wrong, but is believed to be thought guilty by the ICAC of being a Liberal member. Mr Sinodinos, are you now, or have you ever been, a member of the Liberal Party? 

Meanwhile incompetent State ALP Member Nick Lalich has posed next to a street named after him. A car park might have been more appropriate. Although the only reason why there are now some more car parks in his electorate is thanks to a campaign initiated by Dai Le. ALP leadership in NSW deny their constituents to force a PUP candidate into a campaign as an ALP member. That there is true colours that is. Meanwhile RACV in Victoria argues "And studies show that as soon as you increase capacity, that capacity is taken up by people driving more cars on those roads. Congestion does not ease." The argument is a furphy, people only drive one car at a time and they need sensible road management to make their experience better. 

Obama's secret service is keen to catch them all as they tackle a Pikachu on the White House lawn. Gay activists complain after a straight couple agree to get married to win a prize of Rugby seats at a test. The activists argue that the wedding will trivialise gay marriage. The friends agree not to divorce for two years. Big Macs are the same size now as they were in 1970. However, a large number of products have become smaller so as to retain their supermarket price. 
From 2013
The Australian PM elect has not yet announced a ministry. Partly because a campaign against prospective industry Minister Sophie Mirabella has been successful, and her actual seat is in doubt. This is a tragedy because unlike Gillard or Wong, Mirabella has talent. The person who might defeat her is supported by a so called conservative independent who supported the left wing minority government and helped trash the political career of Nick Greiner. So naturally the press, in the interim,  are asking who or what will be the next ALP leader. Will it be from the corrupt ALP right in the form of Shorten, or from the corrupt ALP left in the form of Albanesi. It is in fact of no consequence, as both have the same policy of the other. Shorten will follow Gillard's lead regardless of what it is. Albo, as leader,will do what his mandate tells him. It is yet to be revealed what sweet nothings the mandate whispers. Some say it is Carbon Tax. Some say it is Gay marriage. Gillard opposed Gay marriage, but Shorten can be his own man, as soon as he works out what she really meant. Apparently the mandate isn't Tim Matherson and so the press have many questions they want answered, and are increasingly irritated Abbott hasn't told them yet. 

Also, there is leadership speculation in the US. Some say Obama is President. Obama is taking the lead from Putin. At first the press had thought Obama was dithering as over a hundred thousand people have died and millions have been made refugees in Syria. Clinton, who had a similar experience in Rwanda before he learned bombing could be ineffective in former Yugoslavia has given a lead to Obama. In order to be assertive, Obama wants to bomb something. So, in a masterclass display of dithering, Obama asked for permission to bomb Syria. But time passes, people die, a Christian village with the world's oldest Christian church has fallen to rebels (the CIA labels them Al-Qaeda, but the press know they are sensitive to leaks, so they call them rebels) and Obama is agreeable to a brokered position by Putin. This puts Russia in the box seat of negotiations between Iran and the US on nuclear issues. So the US President has abrogated US policy to Russia. Which is just as well, as it turns out that the weapons available to the Rebels include the high tech weapons stolen by Al-Qaeda at Benghazi last year. Confused? Think of it as a cancelled episode of Glee.

          Researchers Discover Ancient 'Hashtag'      Cache   Translate Page      
Scientists working in South Africa say they've found the earliest known drawing. It was dug up in a cave where early humans apparently lived for thousands of years and left behind numerous artifacts. The drawing isn't what you'd call elaborate; it's a row of crosshatched lines along the smooth face of a rock that may have been a tool for making ocher. In fact, the red lines were made with red ocher. The pattern (with a little imagination) resembles a hashtag. What's remarkable is that it was apparently made about 73,000 years ago. That's tens of thousands of years older than similar drawings made in European caves. The researchers , led by Christopher Henshilwood of the University of Bergen in Norway, have previously found a sort of toolkit for making ocher at the site, known as Blombos Cave, that dates back 100,000 years. That evidence shows that early Homo sapiens were clearly making ocher a long time ago, though for what purpose is unclear. And they've found a piece of ocher from

          Interview: Look Outside America for Fresh Insight on American Evangelicals      Cache   Translate Page      

Melani McAlister’s new history aims to capture what the familiar political story leaves out.

Since the 1980s, when the Religious Right helped elevate California governor Ronald Reagan to the presidency, outside observers have typically understood American evangelicalism through the lens of American politics. Melani McAlister, a professor of American studies at George Washington University, wants to tell a broader story by looking outside American borders. Studying American evangelical missionary and humanitarian activity in Egypt, South Africa, Congo, and South Sudan, she says, reveals a movement that has always seen itself as part of a global communion.

In her book, The Kingdom of God Has No Borders, McAlister applies this international lens to the past half-century of American evangelical history. David R. Swartz, associate professor of history at Asbury University and author of Moral Minority: The Evangelical Left in an Age of Conservatism, spoke with McAlister about her research.

What does applying a global lens tell us about American evangelicalism?

It tells us that evangelicalism is politically complicated and racially diverse. Global engagement sometimes pushes American evangelicals in conservative directions and sometimes in liberal directions, but it definitely makes the political ground they occupy much more complex than we often acknowledge.

How have encounters in the Majority World made American evangelicals more liberal in some ways and more conservative in others?

American evangelicals have often given donations to charity. That’s not new. But as they encountered economic insecurity, political instability, health crises, and refugee situations, they began to realize that global poverty couldn’t be solved through charity alone. In 2005 American and European evangelicals prayed outside the G8 ...

          Plagiarism or remixing? South African photographer accuses artist of theft      Cache   Translate Page      

Graeme Williams was astonished to see his iconic 1990 photograph at an art fair, drained of colour, under Hank Willis Thomas. Thomas, however, questions if Williams has rights to the image

A renowned American artist has been accused of plagiarising and profiteering from an iconic image by a South African photographer that came to symbolise the collapse of apartheid.

Graeme Williams said he was astonished to walk into the Johannesburg art fair last week and see his photograph of a group of black school children taunting despondent, armed white policemen sitting on an armoured car shortly after Nelson Mandela’s release in 1990. The image was reproduced with relatively little change, except that it was drained of colour and lightened in parts, under the name of Hank Willis Thomas.

          LISWire: Books are medicine for the soul      Cache   Translate Page      

Facet Publishing announce the release of Bibliotherapy, edited by Sarah McNicol and Liz Brewster.

Bibliotherapy has developed over the past 100 years, but the premise remains the same: that information, guidance, and solace can be found in books. Bibliotherapy schemes have been offered in UK public libraries and healthcare and community settings since the early 2000s, providing access to selected written materials which it is hoped will have a positive effect on mental health and wellbeing.

Liz Brewster and Sarah McNicol’s new book explores the history and theory of bibliotherapy for the first time, illustrating the contemporary debates amongst researchers and explaining how these relate to the work of bibliotherapy practitioners. A key focus of the book is on methods of offering bibliotherapy for diverse audiences, including homeless populations, psychiatric patients, non-native speakers and people living with dementia.

Bob Usherwood, Professor Emeritus at The University of Sheffield said, “This life-affirming text is essential reading not only for those concerned with bibliotherapy but for all who believe in the value and potential of library services in the modern world.”

The book includes case studies from around work illustrating how particular approaches to bibliotherapy can be used across different settings including, communities living with HIV/AIDS in South Africa, homeless people in Australia, socially vulnerable patients, particularly those with drug-use problems in Uruguay and speakers of English as an additional language in England.

The editors said, “Our aim is that this book contributes to the ongoing debates about the theory of bibliotherapy and its practical application, by focusing on the theoretical basis and history of bibliotherapy, as well as current practitioners”.

The book will be of interest to researchers and theorists, those managing bibliotherapy programmes in health, public and academic libraries and healthcare providers and those with an interest in wellbeing more generally.

          Researchers Discover Ancient 'Hashtag'      Cache   Translate Page      
Scientists working in South Africa say they've found the earliest known drawing. It was dug up in a cave where early humans apparently lived for thousands of years and left behind numerous artifacts. The drawing isn't what you'd call elaborate; it's a row of crosshatched lines along the smooth face of a rock that may have been a tool for making ocher. In fact, the red lines were made with red ocher. The pattern (with a little imagination) resembles a hashtag. What's remarkable is that it was apparently made about 73,000 years ago. That's tens of thousands of years older than similar drawings made in European caves. The researchers , led by Christopher Henshilwood of the University of Bergen in Norway, have previously found a sort of toolkit for making ocher at the site, known as Blombos Cave, that dates back 100,000 years. That evidence shows that early Homo sapiens were clearly making ocher a long time ago, though for what purpose is unclear. And they've found a piece of ocher from

Enough of Uncle Sam’s Bullying

The sanctions are indeed about the US’s proclivity for regime change in order to achieve its goal to change the power matrix in Zimbabwe from Zanu- PF to the opposition MDC Alliance that will be subservient to it and give US access to our natural resources.

Since the United States of America renewed sanctions on Zimbabwe on the eve of  the 2018 harmonised elections results, my circles have been agog with debate, theories and interpretations, most of them off the mark.

President Mnangagwa has done a lot to re-engage with the international community after the political hiatus that ended in November 2017 with the coming in of the new political dispensation.

President Mnangagwa gave the US and its allies unprecedented unlimited access to Zimbabwe’s electoral processes for the 2018 harmonised elections in good faith.

They had access to the voters’ roll. They had access to observe and monitor the elections. They had access to every polling station. They had access to every political party. They had access to virtually everything. Even the court challenge was beamed live on TV. What else would one want? But they remained contemptuous and brazenly unchanged.

In the end it turned out that what US diplomats and representatives and those of its allies say on the ground is different from what their capital says. One wonders if those diplomats serve a purpose. They indicate left and their countries turn right. Surely, the new Zimbabwean leadership has done enough to be respected and acknowledged. The new political leadership has done too much in a short space of time to open up the country.

President Mnangagwa’s efforts must not be abused as we have seen them being abused by the US in particular when it renewed sanctions in brazen bad faith.

The sanctions are not about democracy, good governance or accountability, as the US wants the gullible in the world to believe. They are not about free, fair and credible elections. NO! They are about US’s brazen lust for Zimbabwe’s natural resources. They are part of the US bully tactics to cow the Zanu-PF Government and enable it to lay its hands on Zimbabwe’s natural resources.

The sanctions are indeed about the US’s proclivity for regime change in order to achieve its goal to change the power matrix in Zimbabwe from Zanu- PF to the opposition MDC Alliance that will be subservient to it and give US access to our natural resources.

Zanu-PF is a great afrocentric revolutionary party that has made it impossible for the US to plunder Zimbabwe’s natural resources at the expense of the autochthons of this country. For that reason the US has tried everything in its power to get rid of the Zanu-PF Government.

It is common knowledge that even the International Monetary Fund (IMF) has continuously been throttled by US influence in its structures when it comes to real financial assistance to Zimbabwe and yet Zimbabwe has done all it can to remain in good books with the IMF.

It is common cause that Zanu- PF, whose policies are premised on empowering the black majority, has been a thorn in the flesh of US foreign policy that seeks to advance US hegemony on other countries’ natural resources at the expense of everyone else.

Zanu-PF has remained resolute and unapologetic on its position that Zimbabweans have a right to determine who exploits their resources and not be subservient to other countries.

The sanctions that were illegally imposed by the US in 2001 and have been periodically renewed, have taught Zimbabwe that there are other options.

I was particularly impressed that the BRICS summit held last month in South Africa is another viable option outside the restrictive and bully tactics of the US and its allies.

BRICS can offer different and viable options. Zimbabwe can surely use the BRICs Development Bank to seek financial assistance for its projects and forget about the IMF. Zimbabwe can capitalise on BRICS.

As it stands, it is a waste of time for Zimbabwe to think that US and the Bretton Woods institutions will soon mutate to become useful friends. NO.

BRICS countries are not as manipulative as the US and its allies. That the BRICS invited President Mnangagwa to its summit speaks a lot of goodwill on its part.

It therefore means that Zimbabwe should come up with comprehensive proposals and present them to BRICS, leveraging on its good relations. Certainly BRICS is the best alternative at the moment.

After doing his best to thaw relations with the West, President Mnangagwa was not treated fairly by the same countries that see themselves as the gods of the world.

The US did not have even the courtesy to wait for Zimbabwe’s election results. It just renewed the sanctions on the eve of results announcement. That is very contemptuous. It speaks a lot about the US attitude.

BRICS therefore provides itself as the best alternative under these circumstances while the US continues playing Big Brother.

Zimbabwe urgently needs to fix its economy and needs countries that understand its plight and history. It needs old and new partners who are flexible and sensitive to its urgent needs and not the ultra-arrogance displayed by the US.

The BRICS offer a vast and wide variety of areas of co-operation such as mining, farming, manufacturing, technology, ICT, health services and capacity building, among others.

BRICS also has a history of dealing with emerging markets and Zimbabwe can leverage on the BRICS experience.

First Lady Tours Cholera Facility: State of Emergency Declared After 21 Dead, 2300 Cases

First Lady Auxillia Mnangagwa has expressed concern over the death of 21 people from cholera, which is preventable and treatable.

Speaking to journalists after visiting a cholera treatment camp at Beatrice Road Infectious Diseases Hospital in Harare yesterday, the First Lady said it was sad that the spread of the disease was a result of poor hygienic practices.

“Loss of life is not a desirable occurrence, especially when what is causing it is totally preventable and treatable. Most of the issues are coming from us; the way we carry ourselves, the way we behave in terms of handling food and water,” she said.

People, said the First Lady, should always ensure that their homes are clean, the food they eat is well-cooked and their families practise good hygienic standards to curb water and food-borne diseases.

The First Lady said while the authorities had a role to play in providing basic amenities, especially in densely-populated areas such as proper sanitation facilities, clean water and collection of garbage, individuals must play their role.

“I want to encourage people that when they are buying fruits and vegetables, they clean them thoroughly,” she said.

She expressed concern over some settlements, which she said were overcrowded, leading to the further spread of diseases like cholera.

The First Lady said to effectively contain the outbreak, people should work  together and coordinate efforts because this was not solely a Government problem.

“I am also saying on this one we have our children in the diaspora. They should also come and help us here in Zimbabwe. This is your country. Come back home and put your hand. You will see there will be good development to your country and the Zimbabwe we want all,” she said.

Speaking at the same occasion, Health and Child Care Minister Dr Obadiah Moyo commended the First Lady’s gesture to visit the cholera treatment site saying it showed commitment and motherly love.

“We are taking drastic action to ensure that we get rid of the diseases as quickly as possible. So I am so happy when you talk about a clean Zimbabwe. We want to make Zimbabwe clean, so there is no one better than yourself and His Excellency leading us to ensure that all our cities and where we live remains clean,” said Dr Moyo.

Primary and Secondary Education Minister Professor Paul Mavima also commended the First Lady’s efforts.

He said the Ministry would ensure that all schools had safe and adequate water supplies and proper sanitation facilities.

“As for now we have not lost any pupil from our schools but there are some parents of children in our schools who have died,” he said.


Cholera declared state of emergency •20 dead, 2 300 cases reported •Health minister blasts council

12 SEP, 2018 - 00:09

Government has declared the cholera outbreak in Harare a state of emergency as numbers of people dying or falling sick from the bacterial infection rise. By mid-morning yesterday, 20 people had been confirmed dead from the latest cholera outbreak.

Over 2 300 suspected cases have been recorded in Harare alone.

Isolated cases have also been reported in Masvingo, Manicaland, Midlands and Mashonaland Central provinces, all traced back to Harare as the epicentre.

Addressing journalists after visiting Beatrice Road Infectious Diseases Hospital, one of the treatment camp sites in Harare, Health and Child Care Minister Dr Obadiah Moyo said declaring the outbreak an emergency allowed the State to quickly mobilise resources to contain the disease, adding that Harare was the source of all cases reported countrywide.

“We are declaring an emergency for Harare. This will enable us to contain cholera and typhoid in the city as quickly as possible. We do not want further deaths, so if we do not create this disaster emergency situation, we will continue losing lives.”

The collection of refuse in Harare has become extinct. Garbage has piled up in the streets of the CBD and various residential areas, presenting citizens of the capital with a potential health hazard.

Dr Moyo took a swipe at Harare City Council which he said had failed to attend to sewer bursts in Glen View for the past two months, resulting in the contamination of boreholes.

“Someone slept on duty and this is one of the problems we must tackle as Zimbabwe. People must work. This whole problem is a result of blocked sewers and these were reported, but were never repaired for at least two months. Now we have the whole of Glen View and Budiriro being affected,” said Dr Moyo.

He said while he would seek audience with Local Government, Public Works and National Housing Minister July Moyo on a permanent solution to these recurrent challenges, they had agreed with Harare Mayor Herbert Gomba to immediately clear all sewer blockages.

Dr Moyo said they were also clamping down on illegal food vending with the assistance of the police.

He said development partners were assisting with provision of water bowsers, medical supplies and other non-food items.

“We have a problem, which has to be solved. We need to improve services so that we stop the number of people dying from cholera. There must not be deaths at all,” he said.

Mayor Gomba, who accompanied the Minister on his tour, pledged to fight the outbreak.

“We are working on responsibilities that fall within our mandate but there are also other responsibilities that lie outside our mandate, which Government should also chip in to assist” said Cllr Gomba.

“For instance, for us to collect garbage, we need refuse trucks but we are failing to get foreign currency from the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe to get our refuse trucks, which have been in South Africa for the past 10 months,” said Mayor Gomba.

He said Government must also prioritise construction of Kunzvi and Musami dams to complement available sources of water for Harare and neighbouring towns.

Asked why the outbreak was spreading so fast both in Harare and across the country, public health specialist Dr Prosper Chonzi said there was a slow response by health officials to the first reported cases.

“The reason why it is spreading so fast is that they delayed in picking it up. Cases were picked up when people had already died and funerals held without supervision,” saaid Dr Chonzi.

“Mourners conducted the same rituals that we practice as Africans such as shaking hands, washing the body of the deceased and so forth and they went back to their homes. Again no follow-ups were done, resulting in the bacteria spreading,” said Dr Chonzi.

He said cases were picked up when people had already died.

Dr Chonzi at Beatrice Road Infectious Diseases Hospital

Dr Chonzi said there was also a possibility that all ground water in Glen View area, where sewerage has been flowing for the past two months, was contaminated with faecal matter and therefore unsafe for drinking.

“We need to appreciate the mode of transmission of cholera. It is faecal orally transmitted, which means faecal matter would have found its way into the oral cavity of a human being,” he said.

“The natural habitat of cholera and typhoid is sewer. So if sewer finds its way into food or water, people will definitely get the disease,” said Dr Chonzi.

“Right now, I think underground water in Glen View and Budiriro is totally contaminated with salmonella and vibrio (bacteria that causes cholera). So people drawing water from boreholes or shallow wells are drinking water that is already contaminated and will definitely get the disease,” he said.

Chinese TV Service's Success in Africa Linked to Localization Plan
By Zhang Hongpei
Global Times
2018/8/31 23:03:40

A Chinese entrepreneur said on Friday Africa still offers huge potentials, and further economic ties between China and African countries would help tap into them.

Beijing-based StarTimes Group, a digital TV services provider, has been investing in the African market since 2008 starting with Rwanda, aiming to enable every African family to afford and have access to digital TV.

"When I first came to Africa in 2002, I learned that local TV operators charged as much as $200 in installation fees, plus licensing fee ranging from $47 to $130 per month, which was outrageous. Local people could not afford that," Pang Xinxing, chairman of StarTimes, told the Global Times in an exclusive interview on Friday.

"Making digital TV popular in Africa is very important to drive social progress, but subscribers should not be forced to pay too much," Pang said.

StarTimes' licensing fee is as low as under $3 per month, Pang said, while subscribers can have access to over 480 channels, including international ones, Chinese mainstream media, African channels and 43 company-owned channels.

So far, it has over 20 million subscribers in more than 20 African countries.

Pang said the "access to satellite TV for 10,000 villages" project entrusted to the StarTimes by the Chinese government will be completed by the deadline.

The project, which was borne out of the resolutions of the 2015 summit of Forum on China-Africa Cooperation in South Africa, in which the Chinese government pledged to provide satellite TV in 10,112 African villages, is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2018.

"In Africans' eyes, goods and services provided by Chinese firms are not only cheap but of high quality, quite different from years ago when they suffered a low quality image," Pang noted.

StarTimes achievement can be attributed to its localization strategy.

"The most important thing is respecting local regulations, culture and customs, which is much easier said than done," Pang explained.

Three-fourths of its 5,000 staff in China and Africa are foreigners.

Many opportunities remain open to Chinese companies in the African market under the framework of the Belt and Road initiative and the historical friendship between China and Africa, according to Pang.

"Taxation and business mechanisms in Africa are improving, and the land offers huge demographic and resource dividends," he said on Friday.

Pang is confident in a new round of African economic development after struggling for three years.

"China-African cooperation is a long-term trend," he said.
