          The EU Just Broke The Internet And Started A War With Pirates      Cache   Translate Page      


Earlier this morning the EU voted in favor of the Copyright Directive, a controversial update to copyright laws. Publishers are hailing this as a victory, but the rest of the internet has no comment, because it is in the hospice, dying.

The battle lines are drawn on two key provisions: Articles 11 and 13. Called the "link tax" and the "upload filter" by people who don't have their head up their ass, it would force companies like Google and Facebook to pay publishers whenever they link to stories. The upload filter would force Google and Facebook to block people from sharing unlicensed copyrighted news stories, songs, videos, and memes.

Some publishing companies are hailing this as a big win for the little guys, ignoring the fact that IF PEOPLE CAN'T LINK TO YOUR STORIES, NOBODY WILL COME READ YOUR STORIES. According to them, newspapers might finally get paid for journalisming (HARD TO DO WITHOUT PEOPLE READING IT), musicians could move out of their parents' basements (yeah, we don't know, that probably is right), and porn stars wouldn't have to slap politicians on the ass with copies of Forbes to pay the bills. The publishers say that tech companies are just whining because they're finally being held accountable for stealing and sharing content (even if it's already free), and implying that they actually intend to pay artists and journalists.


Since the internet is mostly porn, terrible memes, and bootlegs, nerds are raising their Jolly Rogers and declaring war. They argue that vague provisions in the sweeping new law make it unclear how people can continue to share news articles, blog posts, and bad jokes. There are real fears that the upload filters will cripple the careers of freelance photojournalists, artists, and computer coders who rely on the magic of the internet to share their work and earn beer money.

Where (some) publishing companies see this as a move to finally tamp town on the scourge of internet piracy, actual internet pirates are laughing their caffeinated asses off. When link tax legislation passed in Spain, Google simply pulled their news service. When Germany tried a similar tax on content, people just gave their content to Google for free. And as anyone in China can tell you, content filtering only hurts the general public and encourages people to avoid filters. This often pushes legitimate content deep into the wretched butthole of the Dark Web where it's hard to simply browse the web like you'd channel surf TV late at night.

The effects of the law are broad and prove that people do not have the interest of users in mind. Want to read your favorite snarky news brief? Sorry, the Wonkagenda violates the "link tax." How about listening to classical music and reading old books? Copyrighted, even if it's public domain. Want to download old school Nintendo and Sega games for your kids? Fuck your kids, tell those little shits to come correct! Would you like to browse photos of that big anti-Trump protest? Go have a tough titty pity party, those photos have billboard ads, logos, and branded pink pussy hats -- all copyrighted.

The Copyright Directive isn't up for final approval until January, but it's expected to pass without much resistance. The European Pirate Party has called the law "catastrophic," and is vowing to fight the bill alongside tech giants and internet advocacy groups like the EFF, and the Mozilla Foundation. Americans may scoff at a fight for internet rights in Europe, but they'd be wise to remember that just last week congressional Republicans called for the strict regulation of the internet under the guise of free speech.

Bottom line: the fight isn't about making dick jokes and memes, it's about the freedom to share dick jokes and memes. And since everything is terrible, here's a baby pygmy hippo.

Swaksi na sa Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) ang bagyong Ompong. Napakalakas daw nito kaya lubos ang paghahanda ng LGUs sa mga lugar na tatamaan nito. Let's continue to pray na maging ligtas ang lahat at kung pwede lang, matunaw ito bago pa makapaminsala.

Dahil din kay Ompong, postponed ang taunang UPCAT. Unahin muna ang safety ng kabataan tsaka more time ito para sila ay makapag-review pa. Best of luck sa kanila!

Isa pang postponed ay ang kauna-unahang Mister World Philippines competition. Dapat sana ay sa Sabado na itez (September 15) but of course, may umeksenang bagyo. AMP! Kahit siguro itinuloy itez, hindi mapipigilan ang 'sangkabaklaan para manood. Kesehodang lumangoy pa kami sa baha, rarampa kami diyan!

Unang beses pa lang magkakaroon ng MrWP dahil appointed ni Madame Cory Quirino at ng Miss World Philippines Organization sina Andrew Wolff, John Spainhour at Sam Ajdani. OH! Binanggit ko lang sila, nag-water na kayo. P'wes, ihanda niyo pa ang mga sarili niyo dahil labing anim na nagsasarapang otoko ang maglalaban-laban para sa titulo. Wit niyo kakayanin ang kalidad ng mga sumali. Upper echelon compare to other local male pageants. 'Di nga me sanay kasi panay bikini contests ang watch ko. CHAR!

Medyo conservative din ang MrWP dahil walang swimwear round. Walang nagsisikipang trunks. ANO BA! Well, wala rin kasi ganun sa Mister and Miss World kaya hanggang boardshorts na lang ang pinakasexy nilang sinuot. NAKAKABITIN! 'Yung parang puputok na sana pero naunsyami. CHOS! Sherep pa rin naman kaya keri na.

Eto na, ihahanda ko na sa ating karinderya ang 16 contestants. Tanong nga ni makiring Taylor... are you ready for it?

          Хърватия претърпя унижение в Испания      Cache   Translate Page      

Време беше Хърватия да се събуди след еуфорията от второто място на Световното в Русия. Това стана по доста болезнен начин снощи в Елче, където "ватрените" загубиха с 0:6 от Испания в мач от Лигата на нациите.

Резултатът спокойно можеше да бъде и 10:0. Факт е, че Хърватия бе с променен състав, но в селекцията личаха и основни футболисти като капитана Лука Модрич, изигралия своя мач №100 за първия тим на страната си Иван Ракитич, Иван Перишич, Матео Ковачич... 

Головете вкараха Родриго (23-тата минута), Марко Асенсио (33-тата), Калинич (автогол, 35-ата), Родриго (49-ата), Рамос (57-ата) и Иско (70-ата). Повечето бяха много красиви и изработени. При автогола на вратаря Калинич новата звезда на "Реал" (Мадрид) Асенсио проби и шутира, топката тресна напречната греда и от тялото на стража влетя в мрежата.

Така Испания записа втора поредна победа под ръководството на новия селекционер Луис Енрике - след 2:1 срещу Англия на "Уембли" в група 4 на дивизия А.

В гр. 2 Белгия разби Исландия с 3:0 като гост. Еден Азар в 29-ата от дузпа и Ромелу Лукаку в 31-ата и 81-ата реализираха за "червените дяволи".

С гол на Един Джеко в 78-ата минута Босна и Херцеговина победи с 1:0 Австрия в гр. 3 на дивизия В. Унгария пък измъкна 2:1 от Гърция у дома в гр. 2 на дивизия С.

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

Quit my job

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Life was passing me by

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

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

Quit my job

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

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

I traveled — and started a business

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

Quit my job

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

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

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

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

Quit my job.

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

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

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

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

Quit my job

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

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

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

And this is just the beginning.

          European NATO Jets Showcase Unified Russian Deterrence      Cache   Translate Page      
British, French and German fighter jets simulated flight interceptions over Western Europe on Wednesday as part of NATO drills to deter Russian planes from entering allied airspace and to showcase European efforts to integrate their air defenses.  Fighter pilots carrying air-to-air missiles from 10 NATO nations took turns to simulate the interception of a Belgian air force transport plane en route to Spain, performing visual inspections of the aircraft’s status by hovering off the wings at speeds of 900 km/hour (560 mph). Some 60 NATO jets, mainly from European allies, are on alert to defend alliance airspace, as NATO deals with a dramatic increase in Russian air activity on its borders since Moscow's annexation of Crimea in 2014, with a record 870 interceptions in the Baltics alone in 2016   This month, Moscow is holding its largest war games since the fall of the Soviet Union, with some 1,000 aircraft.  “NATO is relevant. This is not theoretical,” said Spanish Air Force Lieutenant General Ruben Garcia Servert on board the Belgian military transport plane, as Italian Eurofighters flew close to the cockpit to simulate interceptions. They later included British Typhoons and French Mirages.  “We have not always been successful in showing the taxpayer that we have the means and the capabilities to protect the population,” he told Reuters during a rare mid-air public display of flight interceptions.  European allies hope such displays highlight how their air forces are defending Europe in the face of sharp criticism from U.S. President Donald Trump, who at a summit in July railed against Europeans for not spending enough on defense and ports.  Able to divert, force to land or potentially even shoot down combat aircraft, NATO says its so-called air policing is not directed at Russia. But showdowns between rival warplanes in the Baltic and Black Sea are intensifying. Two U.S. jets escorted two Russian bombers over the Arctic Ocean on Sept. 7 in the latest incident, while Russia has scrambled fighter jets to intercept nuclear-capable U.S. bombers in interceptions that have echoes of the Cold War. Analysts warn that any collisions in the air over the Mediterranean, Baltic or Black Sea could risk the start of a wider conflict with Russia. ‘Single sky’ defenses  Both sides accuse the other of dangerous pilot behaviour, but NATO says Russian warplanes regularly fly without respecting international safety norms, such as responding to air traffic control and requests to identify themselves. Russia says all its flights are conducted in accordance with international law. “We have seen aircraft coming to our borders without flight plans, without any kind of controls ... safety regulations, entering into our area,” Garcia Severt said. “We have seen frequent activities in the Black Sea, but not only, sometimes we have seen aircraft flying around Europe,” he said, referring to Russian bombers off Portugal’s coast. NATO will hold its biggest exercise since 2002 in October and November in Norway, called Trident Juncture, and involving non-NATO Finland and Sweden, with more than 40,000 troops. While tensions with Russia have already prompted NATO to deploy multinational land battalions in Poland and the Baltics, NATO is also pushing to integrate its air forces, despite political resistance over issues of sovereignty. Under an agreement being negotiated, individual NATO countries’ air forces would defend each other's airspaces, regardless of the country they are in, under a “single sky” concept that could see Portuguese planes defending Spanish airspace, for example. Today, each nation defends its own airspace, unless, as in the case of the Baltics, it does not have fighter planes.

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

El turismo está en pleno "boom" en Europa, pero no todos los visitantes buscan sol y playa. La cultura y la gastronomía forman parte de los factores a favor, o en contra, de elegir un destino.
Conscientes de esto, nuevo grupo bodegeros españoles han sumado fuerzas para potenciar el enoturismo, esto es, colocar al vino en el centro de la experiencia del turista. Bautizado como "De Bodegas por España", este producto se venderá en el extranjero como "Spain Trough its Wineries". La iniciativa más curiosa: que el turista apadrine una vid para que vuelva todos los años a recoger sus frutos.
En Galicia participan en esta iniciativa tres bodegas: Terras Gauda, Mar de Frades (Grupo Ramón Bilbao) y Vionta (Grupo Freixenet). Las tres organizaron ayer un evento de presentación con expertos del mundo del vino de toda España que inició su celebración en Baiona, desde donde partió el barco "Jesús Rosa Acuña" para conocer las islas Cíes a los visitantes. A 8,5 nudos de velocidad, el guía fue explicando las particularidades históricas del archipiélago acompañado de fondo por música tradicional de Luar na Lubre o Dulce Pontes entre otros artistas. Finalmente se ofreció una comida entre viñedos en Tomiño a cargo de Terras Gauda.
El objetivo de los bodegueros es atraer turistas con un poder adquisitivo medio o alto, "que visite la bodega pero que también consuma en su entorno", explicó Zaida Semprún, directora comercial del Foro de Marcas Renombradas, organismo que potencia la conocida como Marca España.
Para esto se han categorizado cinco actividades que se complementan con el vino. Por un lado, la conexión entre las bodegas y el arte; el bienestar y la salud; los deportes (en el caso de Galicia, náuticos); la naturaleza y la gastronomía local.
Begoña Santamaría, responsable de enoturismo de Terras Gauda, destacó durante el paseo en barco por la Ría que desde su bodega proponen "una degustación entre viñedos, navegar por el Río Miño o subir al Mirador do Corvo para contemplar la desembocadura del Miño". Pero dado que están en O Baixo Miño "también animamos al turista a ir a Tui y visitar la catedral, subir al Monte Trega o hacer un tramo del camino portugués por la costa".
Sandra Álvarez, responsable de enoturismo de Mar de Frades, destacó varias iniciativas.

          Rotavirus Study Could Lead to Development of New Treatments for Disease      Cache   Translate Page      
Scientists have provided new insight on the mechanics of a virus that causes severe diarrhea and sickness in young children, according to a report (“ Biophysical properties of single rotavirus particles account for the functions of protein shells in a multilayered virus ”) published in  eLife . The study, from the Autonomous University of Madrid, Carlos III Health Institute, and National Center for Biotechnology, Spain, could open up new avenues for developing effective treatments for rotavirus, which commonly infects children up to five years old, according to the researchers, who add that it is the first paper to detail the interplay between the function and mechanical properties of a multilayered virus. Virus particles enclose their genetic material in a protein shell designed to protect, shuttle, and release its genome at the host cell. The structure of virus particles, therefore, needs to be strong enough to protect the viral ...

          Apple Unveils Apple Watch Series 4 With 30 Percent Larger Display, Thinner Body, ECG Reader, Fall Detection, and More      Cache   Translate Page      
Apple announced new Apple Watch models at its Gather Round event today at the Steve Jobs Theater in Apple Park, Cupertino. The Apple Watch Series 4 will be available in 40mm and 44mm sizes – a step up from the 38mm and 42mm options of previous models – has a thinner body, and comes with a number of next-generation medical heart detection features approved by the FDA.


The new models have screens that are 30 percent larger than previous versions and, combined with a new user interface, allow watch faces to display up to eight complications, while native apps can show more information.

The Digital Crown has been re-engineered to include haptic feedback for better tactile responsiveness, the built-in speaker is 50 percent louder, and the microphone has been relocated, to reduce echo for better sound quality.

Meanwhile, new heart detection features, made possible via a new electrical heart sensor, include the ability to perform electrocardiogram (ECG) readings right out of the box, as well as detect low heart rhythm with background detection for atrial fibrillation, and low heart rate monitoring to detect very low blood flow from the heart.

The back of the Series 4 is made entirely of ceramic and sapphire crystal, with radio waves able to pass more freely through the front and rear, enabling better reception when using cellular functions. Despite the new tech, battery life remains on average the same as the previous generation Apple Watch, while running enthusiasts can now look forward to six hours' battery life when using outdoor workouts.


A new 64-bit Dual Core S4 processor provides up to 2x faster performance over previous generation models, and faster accelerometer and gyroscope technologies allow for better sensitivity, including the ability to detect a physical fall.

By analyzing wrist trajectory and impact acceleration, the Apple Watch Series 4 sends the user an alert after a fall, which can be dismissed or used to initiate a call to emergency services. If the device senses immobility for 60 seconds after the notification, it will automatically call emergency services and send a message along with location to emergency contacts.

With watchOS 5, Activity competitions allow users to challenge other Apple Watch wearers, automatic workout detection provides an alert to start a workout while giving retroactive credit, and Yoga and Hiking are new dedicated workout types that accurately track active calories burned and exercise minutes earned.

Meanwhile, Apple Watch owners can reach their friends with a tap of the wrist with Walkie-Talkie, a watch-to-watch connection exclusive to watchOS 5 that allows communication around the world over Wi-Fi or cellular.

The 40mm and 44mm Apple Watch models come in GPS and GPS + Cellular versions, in Silver, Space Gray, and Gold aluminum case options, and stainless steel options in Silver, Space Black, and Gold (with matching Milanese band).


A new Nike+ collection for Series 4 features redesigned Nike watch faces, which match to the new band colors, including a Pure Platinum/Black Sport Band and a Summit White Sport Loop with reflective yarn. Meanwhile new Hermès variants introduce an assortment of color-blocked bands and watch faces that shift from one color to the other with the passage of the minute hand.

Apple Watch Series 4 pricing starts at $399 for GPS and $499 for LTE, while the Series 3 continues to be available but at the new lower price of $280. Orders for the new models and new bands open Friday, September 14, with availability beginning Friday, September 21, in Australia, Canada, China, Denmark, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the UAE, UK and US, with other countries later this year.

Location: 110-112

The fortunes of the urban fabric of the Roman West are a subject of perennial debate and re-evaluation. In particular, over the course of the 3rd century, the economic, religious, political, and social roles of cities changed markedly. Their fate provokes questions that require careful consideration of archaeological and historical methods, theory, and a variety of forms of evidence. This talk will use recent and ongoing excavation at the Roman city of Los Bañales and surrounding cities in northern Spain as a touchstone to introduce these issues in context and to explore future avenues for investigation.

Kilian Mallon is a 6th year PhD candidate in Classical Archaeology at Stanford. He works on the economic and religious history of the late Roman world and is currently excavating at the site of Los Bañales in northern Spain.

          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.

          Thread: Dark Domains:: Crowdfunding:: Kickstarter Update #19      Cache   Translate Page      

by Jeff Horger

I wanted to cross-post today's update here since I feel many BGG'ers will find the games variation interesting and important.

Hang on tight everyone I have a huge informative update and this is just the first. Over the next few days we will have updates ranging from Translations to Non-Reward Backers to a vote for future Expansions along with coverage of the final push to bring home the Necromancer. So strap in and grab some popcorn.

The big news today is that we are going to do a little shifting of the stretch goals. We have heard you and understand that there may be some things you hold more dearly than me on having in the game. So we are going to change some things up. We are keeping the $70,000 goal where it is. Denial Magic is the last set of spells to add to the game and something I want to see included. We have then moved the set of player power add-on cards, The Masters of the Domains up to the $80,000 mark. At $85,000 we will swap out the standard Meeples for variable and unique Meeples for each color. At $90,000 the Mines will be added. At $95,000 we will add Fortune Set #4. At $100,000 more buildings become available with Urban Edifices. And at $110,000 we have the Wilds of Nik’tmarg extra monsters. There are still more to go and we honestly feel that we will end up hitting everything we have laid out including the sculpted minis add-on set.

To drive this change home, if we can hit the $80,000 mark in one week, by 11:59 pm EST, we will convert the Masters of the Domain add-on to a simple stretch goal and everyone will get it for free! So notify your friends, share the campaign on your social media, send up smoke signals, or tap your neighbor’s wall with Morse code. Do whatever you can to spread the word. You want bonus stuff, they want bonus stuff. Help the world get bonus stuff.

A game about evil versus an evil game. We have made a major selling point of the game locking onto the notion that it was about being evil. It’s an interesting selling point and it’s not wrong. But I have noticed that many comments on numerous forums consider it a heavy take that type of game. Dark Domains tries to walk that fine line of being thematic and being strategic. Some games the player mix, the way the cards fall, the situations that arise just make certain games more interactive than most. For every thematic element in the game there is also a strategic mechanic to offset it. But we understand that that type of thing simply doesn’t appeal much to some people, and it’s funny because Carla, one of the main designers feels the same way those people do.

So all kidding and marketing aside, Dark Domains is a very robust game. Over its eight years of design and development we have created a very robust system where many components were intentionally removed and exchanged. This swapping in or out of components for a game that fits your desires is one of the best things we have done. There will be a set of optional component removals entitled “Lady Carla’s Setup” included in the rules. This will be a list of Spells, Henchmen and Fortune Cards to remove from your game that will not detract from the essence of the game but will make it less aggressive. It doesn’t remove every interaction but it does remove most and the worst offenders. In addition we have a variant in the rules that requires adventurers “cleanse” the buildings they attack and not destroy them. That means that buildings are not lost when defeated but flipped back to the light side and will require effort to flip them back again. Carla is a kindred spirit of those that love clean euros. She loves the game and wants everyone to enjoy it no matter you playing styles.

          Almeria, Spain (SportsNetwork. [url=http://www.shoptheraidersonline.com/Elite-Kyle-Wi      Cache   Translate Page      
Almeria, Spain (SportsNetwork. Kyle Wilber Jersey .com) - Barcelona snapped a two-game slide in La Liga play by rallying for a 2-1 victory over Almeria at the Estadio Mediterraneo on Saturday. The Catalans entered the contest in poor form after dropping back-to-back matches in league play to slip from their perch atop the table, and things appeared to heading further south after Thievy Bifouma handed Almeria a 37th- minute lead by slotting a shot past Claudio Bravo on the counter. The hosts held the advantage until the 73rd minute when Neymar got on the end of Luis Suarezs square pass and tucked home the equalizer with a nifty finish. Barcelona ultimately found a winner eight minutes from time and it was Suarez again playing the role of the architect. The Uruguayan delivered an inch- perfect cross to the back post where Jordi Alba was arriving to guide the pass into the back of the net with a first-time finish. It wasnt a vintage Barcelona performance, but it was enough for the fabled club to stop the rot and climb to 25 points on the season. The Catalans climb to second place in the table after Real Madrid cruised to a 5-1 demolition of Rayo Vallecano at the Bernabeu later on Saturday. Gareth Bale and Sergio Ramos put the hosts in good stead with first-half goals, though Alberto Bueno managed to pull one back for Rayo before the intermission. The second half, though, belonged to Madrid as Toni Kroos, Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo notched a goal apiece to put the club back atop the table on 27 points. Malaga claimed a 2-1 home win over Eibar on Saturday to improve to 21 points on the season. The visitors took the lead through Mikel Arruabarrenas opener in the 42nd minute, but Juanmi leveled the score in the 53rd before a 90th-minute penalty from Nordin Amrabat handed Malaga the vital victory. Also on Saturday, Celta Vigo was held to a 0-0 home draw by Granada while Elche claimed a point from a 0-0 draw at Getafe.

The San Angelo, Texas product, who was a high school and college quarterback sensation in the Lone Star State, will start his first CFL game with the Saskatchewan Roughriders (9-4) on Friday at Mosaic Stadium against the leagues top team, the Calgary Stampeders (11-2). OTTAWA -- Already all but eliminated from playoff contention, the Ottawa Senators will now play the remainder of the season without their leading goal scorer. The Senators announced forward Bobby Ryan would undergo surgery in Montreal Thursday to repair a sports hernia. He will miss the final ten games of the regular season. "Bobby has been dealing with the discomfort of this injury since it was sustained in November," said Senators general manager Bryan Murray. "Both Bobby and our medical staff were hopeful that we could hold off from having surgery until the completion of the season, but he aggravated the condition last Saturday in Dallas to the point that surgery is now the only option." Ryan, who was acquired last July from the Anaheim Ducks, scored a team-leading 23 goals and had 48 points in 70 games. Ryan scored 18 of his 23 goals by Dec. 31 and there was much speculation as to what was the cause of his recent lack of productivity. It now appears the injury played a big factor. "Well he certainly started very, very well," said Murray on the Senators team website. "He shoots the puck awfully well, he scored some goals, his line obviously carried the team early on. He was a big part of that. "I think after the hernia started to get aggravated a little bit he seemed to shoot the puck a bit less. Overall, very happy and satisfied with his overall play and we know hell be a real contributor going forward." Ryans teammates were aware of the discomfort the winger was dealing with and offered their support. "He battled through it and tried to work through it and it was something they were trying to give him help and he played well through it," said linemate Kyle Turris. "It will be nice when hes healthy and feeling better and able to get back at it. "We knew it had been nagging him for a while and for him to battle through it and continue to try playing is something that we all respect him for." Ryans injury has created an opportunity for Mark Stone, who was recalled from Binghamton in the American Hockey League after Ryan aggravated the injury last weekend. "Theres still lots of hockey to be played and I want to make an impression and I want to stay up here," ssaid Stone, who has a goal and an assist in his last two games. Brandon Parker Jersey. "I want to continue to play consistent hockey and stay up here for those ten games and hopefully make a good audition for next year." While the Senators will have to host the Chicago Blackhawks without Ryan on Friday, they will likely have Craig Anderson back in goal against the defending Stanley Cup champions. Anderson missed the last seven games after suffering an upper body injury due to a collision with teammate Milan Michalek in a game against the Nashville Predators March 10. Andersons injury came at a terrible time for the Senators, who were still within reach of one of the final wild card spots in the Eastern Conference. The Senators lost their next five games without Anderson and saw any playoff hope disappear. Anderson has served as Robin Lehners backup for the past two games and says hes ready to face the Blackhawks if called upon. Senators head coach Paul MacLean wouldnt name his starter for Fridays game. "If called upon Ill be the guy that gets in there, but well wait to see what the coach says," said Anderson. "Its been a while. I want to make sure when I get back in there that physically I feel 100 per cent and am able to help the team achieve victory that night." Defenceman Chris Phillips should also return to the lineup after missing the last game. Tampas Ryan Malone hit Phillips in a game Monday, and the two crashed hard into the boards. Phillips missed Tuesdays game against the Florida Panthers, but says he feels good and is ready to return. While the Senators are no longer in playoff contention Phillips says theres numerous reasons for the players to be at their best. "We still have games to play," said Phillips. "Everybodys fighting for a job, a contract, trying to prove to coaches and management that you should be here as well as the pride of wearing these jerseys. Were going to go out until the seasons over, whenever that may be, and we want to go out and play as good as we can on a nightly basis." Notes: C Mika Zibanejad says he should be ready to play Friday after missing the last game. Tomorrows game marks the start of a five-game home stand for the Senators.

           Comment on A Month of Islam in America: August 2018 by Allan Kaplan       Cache   Translate Page      
With Sharia Law and the presence of legal Muslims in the USA are 3.4 million and growing. Fastest growing religion in the USA is Islam according to the Buueau of Statistics. Let's look at the realities without getting too emotional and riled up with hate and false understandings. Among the 3.4 million Muslims in the USA,"study shows that those born the “travel ban” countries had an incarceration rate of 0.32 per cent, compared to 1.54 per cent of the native-born Americans".as a proportion of the Muslim-American population (46 out of 3 million in 2016, or approximately 1 in 65,000).number of murders in the United States in a given year, as a proportion of the entire US population (17,250 out of 323,127,513 in 2016, or approximately 1 in 18,000 ). Let's see why Muslim "Refugees" are flooding Europe and a very small percentage to the USA. Why there were no Muslims invading Europe and coming to the USA before 911? What turned these Muslims overnight to run to the West? Let assume we Americans living in small, medium and large cities of the good ole USA living and minding our own business. Suddenly one night Russians or Israelis or any other country start bombing our cities and towns and we have no place to flee to except run to the closest bordering countries with the USA. Let's say we run to Mexico and Canada. And after getting in Mexico and Canada we start living the way we lived in the USA before we started to flee as we were being bombed night and day. The way we treat the Mexicans at home here in the good ole USA, is not gonna be liked by the locals of Mexico cities for disrupting their ways of living. Neither would Canada to a small degree despite our common language, religion and culture. They already resent us as bullying Americans! Since we Americans bombed the hell out of major cities of Arab countries where we are invading them, left no choice but to flee to the closest nex country out of the bombing ranges. Most of these fleeing families of Muslims ended up fleeing to the closest bordering country like Italy, Greece, Spain, Hungary etc. Very few (less than one 30th of one percent) made it to the USA as well. And that's we are dealing with. Just think cool mindedly and we all can understand this crazy talks of "animals" etc. By the way most of these "animal muslims" are more educated than us the average Americans. Most of these "animal Muslims" have degrees in science and medicine and this is why we find doctors, engineers, IT guys and gals from these Muslim countries in our hospitals, clinics, pharmacies, manufacuring, military, defense, space etc etc. So instead of anti-Muslim propaganda by those with special interest and connected with special Israel groups to make the Muslims look like aliens from a different planet, we deal with them everyday in the above institution without a trace of them being terrorists and Sharia police!

          Health Care Resource Utilization and Costs among Adult Patients with Advanced Soft Tissue Sarcoma: A Retrospective Medical Record Review in the United Kingdom, Spain, Germany, and France      Cache   Translate Page      
Objective. To describe health care resource utilization and costs for patients with advanced soft tissue sarcoma (STS) in the United Kingdom (UK), Spain, Germany, and France. Methods. Physicians abstracted data for adult patients with a diagnosis of advanced STS (other than Kaposi’s sarcoma or gastrointestinal stromal tumor) who received ≥1 lines of systemic therapy. Health care resource utilization related to advanced STS treatment was recorded; associated costs were estimated by applying unit costs. Results. A total of 130 physicians provided data for 807 patients (UK: 199; Spain: 203; Germany: 204; and France: 201). The site of care during active treatment varied based on differences in the health care systems of these four countries. Total mean per-patient health care cost in the UK was £19,457; in Spain, €26,814; in Germany, €20,468; and in France, €24,368. Advanced STS-related systemic treatment costs were driven primarily by drug acquisition and administration costs. Treatment-related costs increased during later lines of therapy for all countries except France, where they decreased after first-line therapy. Pain control and antiemetics were the most common supportive care medications. Conclusions. This study provides real-world data on resource utilization and estimated costs in advanced STS and could inform policymakers about treatment burden.

Another botched restoration effort claimed an innocent religious relic. Like in the case of the failed Jesus fresco and Tintin St. George, an overzealous "artist" believed that she could restore a sculpture of the Virgin Mary and baby Jesus.

Although the sculpture, which dates back to the 15th century, had been restored by a professional just fifteen years ago, a resident of Rañadorio, Spain convinced the local clergy to let her spruce up the holy family. Instead of polishing the carving and restoring it to its reverent gleam, María Luisa Menéndez painted it, the Guardian reports Read more...

This report studies the global Automation Solutions in Oil and Gas market status and forecast, categorizes the global Automation Solutions in Oil and Gas market size (value & volume) by manufacturers, type, application, and region. This report focuses on the top manufacturers in North America, Europe, Japan, China, India, Southeast Asia and other regions (Central & South America, and Middle East & Africa).

n the short term, midstream companies are minimally impacted due to low energy prices and a decline in the price of oil. Since contracts in the oil and gas industry are fee-based, most contracts are finalized at fixed rates and contain minimum volume commitments or guarantees of minimum ROI. The augmented implementation of automation solutions, such as SCADA and DCS, to overcome issues like the unstable flow of fluids in pipelines and risers in the midstream infrastructure will lead to the growth of this market over the next four years.

Another trend influencing this markets growth is the availability of automation solutions on the cloud. In the oil and gas sector, automation solutions are likely to be the next logical step in the evolution of automation technology. By shifting towards cloud-based environments, oil and gas companies can significantly reduce costs, achieve greater flexibility, and enhance functionality. A cloud-based platform shifts the task of maintaining data from the oil and gas service companies to the cloud service provider and eliminates the expenses incurred and problems related to the hardware layer of IT infrastructure for companies.

The global Automation Solutions in Oil and Gas market is valued at 76900 million US$ in 2017 and will reach 82400 million US$ by the end of 2025, growing at a CAGR of 1.0% during 2018-2025.

          O mundo parou para ver essa modelo com Down romper tabu em destile importantíssimo      Cache   Translate Page      

Pouco a pouco as passarelas estão quebrando tabus da moda durante os desfiles. A semana de moda de Nova York - evento mais importante do mundo para o segmento - foi prova disto.

Durante o evento, uma modelo grávida e outra cadeirante desfilaram para grifes renomadas, mas, uma em especial, roubou a cena nas passarelas: Marián Ávila, uma jovem portadora de Síndrome de Down.

Modelo com Síndrome de Down

A jovem designer americana Talisha White, deu uma aula de inclusão na semana de moda de Nova York ao colocar em sua passarela uma modelo com síndrome de Down, a espanhola Marián Ávila, de 21 anos.

Desde criança Marián expressa seu desejo em ser modelo. Ela começou a fazer cursos em 2015 na cidade de Madri, na Espanha, e seu primeiro desfile não demorou muito para acontecer. Foi em 2016, com a estilista Lina Lavin.

Logo depois, ela foi convidada pelo designer Francis Montesinos, para participar da semana de moda de Sevilha, em 2016, mas ela queria mais e conseguiu!

Em uma matéria para o site El Español, a mãe de Marián contou que, aos 8 anos, a filha já dizia que sonhava em desfilar em Nova York.

Sonho realizado nas passarelas de Nova York

Marián foi convidade por Talisha White para desfilar alguns de seus modelos na semana de moda de Nova York.

"Estamos muito honrados em ter a @marianavilamodel desfilando por nós no #NYFW. Ela é a primeira modelo espanhola com síndrome de Down a desfilar na #nyfw! ... Estamos mudando o mundo. Um ponto de cada vez. Sabemos que nossos vestidos, por si só, não farão isso, mas estamos confiantes de que as mulheres que os usam, sim”, escreveu Talisha em seu Instagram, que além de convidar Marían para desfilar, também chamou a modelo cadeirante Tae McKenzie.

Um dia antes de desfilar, a modelo espanhola publicou uma foto em seu Instagram e escreveu "Me preparando para meu grande dia". E realmente, foi "O" dia. Marián roubou a cena ao desfilar na passarela exibindo os modelos da grife.

Marián abriu o desfile de Talisha e andou a curtos passos ao longo da passarela. No final, ela foi coroada e saiu acenando para o público que a assistia.

Autoestima lá no alto

A jovem revelou que não se sente diferente por ter Síndrome de Down. "Quando me olho no espelho, vejo uma modelo", contou na entrevista ao El Español.

Uma verdadeira aula de como romper barreiras e preconceitos.

As histórias dessas modelos são inspiradoras

          Woocommerce Tax calculation problem      Cache   Translate Page      

Replies: 1

Hi there,

I have the next issue; I’m selling online products & courses around the world and I’m located in Spain, so as I must pay tax here, I’m introducing my prices with the tax, the idea is that the rest of the world have the same price but without actually displaying the tax.

So if I’m in spain or my billing address is in spain I see this: http://prntscr.com/kts5sm (which is fine – correct price). But then if I change the country I see this: http://prntscr.com/kts60r (the price is less – should be the same without displaying the tax because there’s not). It is taking away the tax amount when I have selected the opcion “Yes, I will enter prices inclusive of tax” so it shouldn’t reduce it.

These are my settings:
Woocommerce > Ajustes > General http://prntscr.com/kts4fq
Woocommerce > Ajustes > Impuesto > Opciones de Impuestos http://prntscr.com/kts4re
Woocommerce > Ajustes > Impuesto > Tarifas estándar http://prntscr.com/kts4yx

What can I do here?

"They came up with a solution: Use European funds to help the migrants live in these depopulated regions.

“Madrid is the point of arrival of a lot of these people and the first thing to do is help them. We have to welcome them because we can’t let them live on the streets”, assured Carmena.

Ska Keller also announced that his EU Parliament’s group will present a resolution in October that will unlock European funds to afford M. Carmena’s solution.

The socialist mayor earlier called migrants “heroes who follow their dreams” and migration “a phenomenon extraordinarily positive for all societies.”

Carmena’s announcement comes during the battle between the EU and Hungary, in which Viktor Orban’s government now faces the triggering of Article 7 against his country, after the parliament’s vote on Wednesday.

This could block Hungary’s access to EU funds, which are the country’s first revenue."

          Spare a Thought for Venezuela      Cache   Translate Page      

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

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

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

Give Me Two!

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

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

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

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

The Road to Hell

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Enter Maduro

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

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

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

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

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

Who Cares?

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

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

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

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

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

What Now?

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

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

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

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

No Condition is Permanent

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

          La logica del business contro la logica della politica      Cache   Translate Page

  • Definizioni




La logica è il metodo del ragionamento corretto. Lo studio della logica si concentra sull’analisi degli argomenti. Un argomento è una sequenza di affermazioni (chiamate premesse), che porta ad affermazioni successive (chiamate conclusioni).




Un argomento è valido quando le sue conclusioni derivano dalle premesse. In altre parole: se un argomento è valido e le premesse sono vere, le conclusioni sono necessariamente vere; se un argomento è valido e le premesse sono false, le conclusioni sono false; se un argomento non è valido, il ragionamento (conclusione), qualora possibile, non ha senso, a prescindere dalla verità o meno delle premesse.




La politica è, nei fatti, quella cosa che ognuno di noi riesce a percepire come “governo” di un insieme di persone in un determinato territorio, che si sottomette a determinate leggi impositive per essere “amministrato” e che, per questa amministrazione paga dei tributi imposti.


Business è un termine inglese che sta ad indicare nella sua espressione etimologica busy-ness una “occupazione”, e si contrappone al termine busyless che contraddistingue “lo sfaccendato”.




  • Premesse




Per il ragionamento di questo lavoro utilizzeremo tre grandi teorie scientifiche correnti:




  • il determinismo;




  • la teoria dei giochi;




  • la teoria del caso.




Per motivi di spazio dobbiamo dare per scontata la conoscenza delle suddette teorie, e ci mettiamo sin d’ora a disposizione personale del lettore per definire più in dettaglio ogni eventuale ed ulteriore approfondimento.




  • La Teoria deterministica.




Il determinismo, che la politica segue (o pretende di seguire, perché così può affermare che ogni sua azione deriva da un calcolo razionale che indichi preventivamente dove si va a finire con ogni decisione politica), è una teoria che afferma che, a condizione di ceteris paribus [1] ogni relazione esistente tra la variabile indipendente ed una o più variabili dipendenti di una funzione è calcolabile, determinabile.




  • La Teoria dei giochi




La teoria dei giochi ha chiaramente spiegato (Teorema del dilemma del prigioniero) come il comportamento certamente razionale di un elemento della relazione, quando non è supportato dalla trasparenza del comportamento dell’altro (o degli altri) elementi della ralazione stessa, possa anche condurre al risultato più svantaggioso. Per questo ha identificato nella “collaborazione”, piuttosto che nella “competizione”, la condizione ideale per raggiungere il massimo risultato. Questa teoria ha inoltre identificato due caratteristiche essenziali che permettono di capire la “logica” (quindi il corretto ragionamento) delle azioni umane. Queste due caratteristiche sono state chiamate “gioco a somma zero” e “gioco a somma non zero”. E’ un tipico gioco a somma zero una lotteria, dove la somma vinta dai vincitori è esattamente persa dai perdenti. In una lotteria non si crea “nuova ricchezza”, bensì si ridistribuisce la ricchezza dai perdenti ai vincitori. E’ paragonabile ad una lotteria la speculazione di Borsa (nonché t utte le altre forme speculative), dove coloro che guadagnano nella compravendita delle azioni lo fanno a danno di altri azionisti che perdono. In questo gioco non si crea e non si distrugge ricchezza reale, ma la si trasferisce solamente.




  • La Teoria del caso.




La teoria del caso ha chiaramente evidenziato come il determinismo nel comportamento umano non sia assolutamente rilevabile, evidenziando solo degli elementi “strange attractors” (attrattori indefinibili), che condizionano e guidano naturalmente (quindi in modo vero) i comportamenti umani e naturali. Un esempio per illustrare in modo semplice il concetto sopra esposto: se ho in mano una pallina da ping pong e con essa scendo in fondo al mare, quando la lascio, la pallina salirà certamente in superficie (perché è più leggera dell’acqua); se riprendo la stessa pallina e mi alzo in volo sul mare, quando la lascio questa cadrà certamente sulla superficie del mare (perché è più pesante dell’aria). In entrambi i casi nessuno è in grado di quantificare il tempo ed il punto esatto della superficie del mare in cui la pallina andrà a finire, ma tutti convengono che questa terminerà la sua azione sulla superficie del mare.




  • La logica del business.




Chi fa qualcosa (business), per essere logico (quindi razionale), deve ottenere il massimo risultato (profitto), pur non conoscendo le decisioni che prenderà la controparte (dinamica non lineare). Abbiamo sopra descritto con la teoria dei giochi come il determinismo non possa dettare nessun coportamento unilaterale che, seppur razionale, possa portare al massimo risultato. Abbiamo inoltre definito come la Teoria del caso identifichi gli strange attractors, overossia quelle condizioni che determinano il risultato di un qualsiasi evento non determinabile. Riteniamo, quindi, di poter concludere che proporre un contratto in cui tutte le parti abbiano il loro tornaconto, il loro profitto (anche se in misura non uguale), è la condizione ideale per raggiungere il massimo risultato. Questo risultato, stando alla Teoria dei giochi si ottiene con la collaborazione, non con la competizione.

Il business, pertanto, può essere identificato in un gioco a somma non zero, dove bisogna sempre creare nuova ricchezza, altrimenti nessuno partecipa, o dove il perdente sarà “attratto” dalla voglia di rivincita, che può innescare una lunga catena di “voglie di rivincita”. Tipica espressione del business di questo secondo tipo è la truffa, o l’attività del tipo “Ho fatto un affare ai danni di …”.




  • La logica della politica.




Chi fa politica, per essere logico, deve sottrarre potere (ricchezza, libertà, rispetto, ect.) a qualcun altro per aumentare il proprio. E’ un tipico gioco a somma zero dove non si crea alcuna nuova ricchezza, ma si ridistribuisce solo quella già esistente (vedi lotteria, speculazione, etc.). Ma al contrario della lotteria, o della speculazione, dove tutte le parti accettano reciprocamente il gioco con le sue regole, la politica, per sottrarre potere, deve ricorrere all’imposizione, ormai identificata nelle sue tre forme di: punizione, remunerazione, condizionamento. Gli strumenti tipici di acquisizione del potere sono:




  • la guerra, come strumento di punizione;




  • la corruzione, come strumento di remunerazione;




  • la manipolazione del consenso, come strumento di condizionamento.






  • 1° Conclusione




Gli Israeliani ed i Palestinesi stanno “giocando” secondo la logica della politica, perché se decidessero di usare la logica di business non avrebbero tempo di fare a sassate, ma dovrebbero lavorare per creare nuova ricchezza reciproca (profitto), ognuno secondo le proprie capacità, e le proprie volontà.

Che cosa porta una popolazione così evoluta tecnicamente quale quella israeliana a giocare alla “lotteria” con la popolazione più povera del mondo (quella palestinese)? Probabilmente una forma di educazione perversa, che ha instillato in loro il concetto che il torto si ripaga col torto, la forza si respinge con la forza, la tecnologia prevarrà sempre, e così via…, e che il business si fa a danno degli altri, e non per generare nuova ricchezza, ma per aumentare solo la propria.

Gli Stati Uniti, la più potente ed affascinante potenza mondiale di business, sono caduti nella stessa perversione israeliana, e si fa guidare dalla logica politica piuttosto che da quella di business nei suoi rapporti internazionali. Lo scrivente è profondamente convinto che gli Americani ritengano di esprimere con il loro comportamento la più ferrea logica deterministica (razionalità), quando invece nulla è determinabile se non con la cooperazione, cioè il coinvolgimento delle controparti.

Un solo punto a loro favore: la politica che riescono ad esprimere Irakeni, Europei, Russi e Cinesi è ancora più becera di quella americana. Nessuno vuole sostituire la logica di business alla logica politica, perché per tutti è molto più comodo rubare che vivere di lavoro.




  • Obiezione




La politica è la scienza che si occupa dell’amministrazione della cosa pubblica, vale a dire della “proprietà indivisa” di una comunità sociale, per cui tutti devono sottomettersi alle sue decisioni.




  • 2° Conclusione




Se così fosse, quella scienza dovrebbe tendere all’efficienza, vale a dire al raggiungimento del risultato massimo (massimo beneficio). Per fare questo, la politica dovrebbe operare generando nuova ricchezza (gioco a somma non zero), non ridistribuendo la ricchezza esistente (gioco a somma zero) attraverso l’imposizione fiscale.


Così facendo la sua logica sarebbe identica a quella di business, la sola logica che riesce ad accumunare gli interessi di tutti, e a generare interesse ad ogni transazione.


In un mercato libero, in mancanza di interesse tra le parti, il business non apre nessuna transazione.

Pertanto non ci sembra fattibile che in politica una maggioranza debba imporre il suo volere ad una minoranza. Mentre ci sembra fattibile che una minoranza possa imporre un business ad una maggioranza.




[1] Ceteris paribus (other things equal) means that in a relationship any dependent variables is calculated as function of the independent variable under the condition that all the other variables do not change.

          Rashford developing quicker than Ronaldo did – Southgate      Cache   Translate Page      
Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford is arguably developing faster than Cristiano Ronaldo did, according to England manager Gareth Southgate. Rashford scored in England's matches against Spain and Switzerland, moving onto five international goals. But the 20-year-old has battled for starts at United, making just one so far this season, while he was sent off against Burnley earlier this month. Southgate praised Rashford's development, comparing him to Juventus star Ronaldo – who was at the beginning of his United career at the same age – and Tottenham forward Harry Kane. "He is [a special talent]," he told UK newspapers. "We have to remember that I don't think Harry, at that age, had hardly played anywhere near the matches for Spurs, really. "Even if some of those other top players who have broken into the team, some of the step-overs and things Ronaldo was doing at that age, but he wasn't converting them into the number of goals, so we have got to give him time to develop. "He [Rashford] has still played a lot of football, although maybe not the continuous starts and I'm really pleased for him that he leaves England full of confidence. He's got huge competition for places at his club, so you can understand [his frustration]." Clinical from @MarcusRashford! #threelions pic.twitter.com/pVvct0SHfb — England (@England) September 12, 2018 Rashford has managed double digits in goals the past two seasons, while Ronaldo first achieved that feat in 2005-06, as he turned 21. The first time Kane struck more than nine in a campaign was in 2014-15 – as he approached 22 years of age – but he netted an impressive 31. Despite Rashford's frustration with a lack of starts at United, Southgate said his club manager Jose Mourinho was a huge fan. "It's not my business to interfere with club managers, they have a difficult job to do and they have big squads at the top six, huge competition for places, so Jose thinks the world of Marcus," he said. "He's a huge admirer of him, but he's got his job to do."    
          Gascoigne hails Southgate's 'unbelievable' England work      Cache   Translate Page      
Paul Gascoigne believes former team-mate Gareth Southgate is doing an "unbelievable" job as England manager. The Three Lions reached their first World Cup semi-final since 1990 in Russia this year in a campaign that greatly boosted the harmony between the national team, the fans and the media following years of tournament disappointment. Gascoigne met up with Southgate on Tuesday ahead of their 1-0 friendly victory over Switzerland at Leicester City's King Power Stadium, a result that lifted morale after a 2-1 Nations League loss to Spain at Wembley. Southgate claimed after that match that his side lacks the "unique" talent of a player like Gascoigne to make the difference against some of the world's finest sides. But the former Newcastle United and Tottenham star thinks England are nonetheless playing a brand of football to make the fans proud. "Gareth Southgate has got England playing the way football should be played," he told talkSPORT. "Honestly, it's the way they pass the ball about. They're young, they're strong and, I tell you what, they're enjoying their football. "There's unbelievable talent there in the England team. Unbelievable, right? "Gareth, as a manager, I am proud of him. I said it before the [Switzerland] game: 'Gareth, I am proud of you – thanks for what you said about me, best player in the world for over 50 years'. I am 51 so I must have been good at one year of age! "The guy is unbelievable. He's got England playing the way we want. All we've got to do is the end product, putting the ball in the back of the net."         View this post on Instagram                   Good to see you, @paul_gascoigne8!  A post shared by England (@england) on Sep 11, 2018 at 11:36am PDT

          Lehighton Sesquicentennial Trivia Night       Cache   Translate Page      
Trying to enjoy all the intriguing events of this week is tough to do.  The Trolley Tour on Saturday, the Cemetery Tour last night and the parade and fireworks coming up Saturday are among the many highlights, not to mention the talent show, various contests, and of course the variety of musical performances each night.

~Be sure to read my other Lehighton Sesquicentennial articles found from this link~


One of my favorite Lehighton pictures:
Chief of Police (most likely Harry Yenser) and
then Mayor William J Zahn chat in our business district.
Zahn served as Chief Burgess from 1934 to 1941.  Chief Yenser
modernized the department by adding new technology necessary to combat
the "gangster" 1930s: a teletype machine, a .45 cal machine gun, and
bulletproof glass in the windshield of the patrol car.  Most work
was still done on foot and even horseback into the 1930s.
The department also owned a motorcycle as early as 1929.

I have a two fold reason for sharing this post to those interested in the Trivia Night this Friday, July 1st from 5:00 to 7:00 PM at the Amphitheater: To give a sampling of some of the questions and also to give a rundown of how the contest will work.

No matter what your level of Lehighton knowledge is, you will be rewarded by attending this event.  Not only will you learn tidbits you never knew existed, but by competing you will achieve a shred of immortality: All competitor's names will be placed in the Time Capsule at week's end along with all the questions and answers.

This was the Lehighton Airport dedication day, on July 20 and 21, 1929 (photographer is facing the homes on Ninth Street).  Pictured here is Mahlon Kistler Sr (4th from left).  It is unclear if Jensen is in this picture.  Other dignitaries attending the event were Governor Fisher and National Labor Secretary Davis.  Jensen was born in Kansas but also
lived in Harrisburg in the 1930s.  One article stated that he was a former resident of our town.
So let's start with a few sample questions that didn't make the cut.

Sample #1: Martin Jensen was the second person in the world to fly from California to where?  (Answers will appear at the end of this article.  Jensen took his $10,000 of prize money from the Dole fruit company to invest it in Lehighton's airfield.  At least 15 other crews attempted this feat, most of those ended fatally.)

Now that could be hard for some folks?  Well first of all, this one is so tough I threw it out.  Also, the first three rounds are all multiple choice.  So is it: A. Jamaica, B. Spain, C. Iwo Jima, D. Hawaii?

An attempt was made to make the questions begin with some relative ease.  Given freely here are some hints at a few of them: "What day does this certain weekly event take place in Lehighton?"  "What is the fee the town charges for someone applying for a ______ permit?" etc.

Sample question #2: Although this is Lehighton's 150th anniversary of its incorporation as a borough, what group originally founded here many years before?  

#3: Give the year of Lehighton's founding by this group.  (Again this is multiple choice in the first three rounds.)

#4: Name one thing you could buy at Karl Shaeffer's store on First St?
Karl "Smotz" Schaeffer ran a novelty
store in downtown Lehighton for years,
here in World War II.

There will be questions about the lives of some of the people nominated for "Citizen of the Century."  #5: He was among the last doctors to still make house calls?  #6: Who are the current owners of the Eugene Baer Silk Mill on Bridge St? etc, etc.

Here's How it will Work:
You can go it alone or pair up with a partner to become a dynamic duo.

Let's say we have 50 teams competing.  You will have a 50% chance of advancing based on how well you do on the first fifteen questions of Round One.  At the end of Round One, only the top 25 teams will advance.

There are lucky-guess tie-breaker questions to help sort out ties if needed.  Here's one: Name (guess) the year Ben Franklin came to Weissport to build a fort.  Or how about guess the number of fire hydrants there are in town.  Person's getting it on the nose will advance.  If no one answers it correctly, the closest without going over will advance. 

Easy right?

Here's an interesting question that was eliminated because it was too hard: Name the Lehighton Chief of Police who died of natural causes at the wheel of his patrol car in 1947?  (See sample answer #6 below).
Mark Blank was Chief of Police prior to
Harry Yenser in the 1930s.  He later became a
US Marshall in Scranton.  In 1929 he was
seriously wounded in a head-on collision on
a motorcycle on the "Mahoning Trail."
The force did have a motorcycle in its livery
at the time.

Round Two and another fifteen questions (they are getting harder now) will have the top fifteen teams advancing to Round Three.  After Round Three, we will have just the top five teams left.

Now it gets interesting.  Multiple choice is gone.  Contestants will then enter the "Jeopardy"-style of play, except for one twist: when in control of the board, they can choose "Battle Questions."

Here's an example.  Suppose this were "State Trivia."  A Battle question could be "Name all the states beginning with the letter "N."  Each question has the number of correct answers available.  In this case there are 8 correct answers.  

The player in control of the board may choose one of these Battle Questions as their turn.  They also get the option of answering first or second.  The player/team that gives the last correct answer gets 5 points.  The losing competitor loses 5 points.  So if you believe the competitor you are playing against knows all their states, you can have them go first, allowing you to give the last correct answer and winning.

Here are some of the Battle Question categories: "Streets (7)," "Streets (11)," "Players (10+)", "Restaurants (10+)," "Service Stations (10+)," and etc. 

There are parameters, such as "Name the streets, including alleys, named after people."  There are eleven of them.  Make sense?  Good.  "Players (10+)" asks contestants to name the players of the 1977 District 11 championship basketball team.  There are more than ten correct names that could be given.  You wont have to know them all, you just need to know one more than the person you choose to "battle" with.

As for the "Jeopardy" side of the game, the categories are: "Sports," "Famous," "Borough," "Corner Stores," and "Current Events."

Questions could be something like: Where could you buy ice cream on South Second Street?  Who was the Olympic Swimmer who trained at Graver's Pool?  Who is our current Chief of Police? etc etc.
Here is one tough looking dude.  He was William Swartz
and he was Lehighton's police chief in 1917.  He tried to
calm down a rowdy 22-year old punk in a Lehighton hotel
and was shot and killed.  The only Lehighton officer killed
in the line of duty.  He left 8 children.

Then of course there is the "Final Jeopardy" question where the five finalists will wager an amount of their score before they answer.  I can tell you the topic now: "Lehighton."

These questions were designed to challenge yes, to inform, certainly.  But my ultimate hope is for all of us present to be enriched by our shared knowledge and love of this great town of ours.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Enjoy!

PS: After the event is over, a complete post of all the questions and answers will be posted, accompanied of course with current and historical pictures.

#1: D. Hawaii
#2: The Moravians

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

          How to extend some wooden bed legs by 12-16"?      Cache   Translate Page      
I've got a great bed frame that I like a lot, but it's quite low. I'd like to raise it by a foot or so and put some rolling storage under there. Unfortunately it seems like every bed riser out there is incredibly ugly or only "rises" a couple inches! I want to extend the wooden legs with... well, more wood. But how?

My idea is basically to put a foot of 4x4 underneath each leg so they're standing end-to-end, and then attach them along a corner with some kind of corner tie. Amazingly, I can't seem to find others who have done this. Difficulty level: the bed legs are 4 1/16" across, non-standard! I figure that's ok, they don't have to match perfectly.

You can see the general shape of things here (don't worry about those things not aligning on the corner - it's solid.) Beautiful MSPaint illustration there too. I just want those stubbly little legs to be longer. (There's a center post too that I'd extend)

It seems simple but I figured I should ask before attempting anything. Would it work to attach the 4x4s to the bed legs with ties like this or this? I'd leave the spare space on the outside angle so it sort of steps in.

Suggestions, criticisms, links welcome! I'm very much an amateur but this seemed possible to do with absolutely minimal tools and cost.

          Press Releases: Coders, Technologists, and Conservationists Tackle Wildlife Trafficking Challenges at Zoohackathon 2018      Cache   Translate Page      
Media Note
Office of the Spokesperson
Washington, DC
September 12, 2018


The U.S. Department of State will host the third annual Zoohackathon in Madrid, Spain; Mumbai, India; San Diego, California; and Entebbe, Uganda, September 15-16, 2018; and in New Delhi, India, September 22-23, 2018. The Zoohackathon events bring together coders, designers, university students, and conservation enthusiasts to combat wildlife trafficking through digital and technological innovations.

Wildlife trafficking—the poaching, illegal transit, trade and sale of wildlife—decimates the world’s most iconic species and generates more than $10 billion a year for transnational organized criminal networks that profit from the illicit sales of exotic pets, delicacies, jewelry, and traditional medicines. The problem is global in scope, it is pervasive, and it has devastating impacts: it threatens security, undermines the rule of law, fuels corruption, spreads disease, robs local communities of their natural resource bases and livelihoods (including the economic benefits derived from nature-based tourism and hunting), and pushes species to the brink of extinction.

At each Zoohackathon site, participants have 24-48 hours to code apps and other programs in response to challenge statements provided by conservation experts, who are fighting against wildlife trafficking on the frontlines. At the end of the hackathons, teams present their work to a panel of judges, and the judges nominate a winner; each site winner is eligible for a global prize.

This year’s Zoohackathon is organized by the Department of State’s Bureau of Oceans and International Environmental and Scientific Affairs in conjunction with the Association of Zoos and Aquariums and other international entities. For further information about Zoohackathon, please visit www.zoohackathon.com/. Follow Zoohackathon on social media at @StateDeptOES, #Zoohackathon, and #EndWildlifeTrafficking.

          Re: Sex tourism in Gambia...      Cache   Translate Page      
From www gvnet.com I transfer the fllowing passage.

Human Trafficking and Modern-day Slavery

The Gambia is a source, transit, and destination country for children and women trafficked for the purposes of forced labor and commercial sexual exploitation. Within The Gambia, women and girls, and to a lesser extent boys, are trafficked for sexual exploitation, in particular to meet the demand for European sex tourism, and for domestic servitude. Boys are trafficked within the country for forced begging by religious teachers and for street vending. Transnationally, women, girls and boys from neighboring countries are trafficked to The Gambia for the same purposes listed above. Primary source countries are Senegal, Mali, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Ghana, Nigeria, Guinea-Bissau, Guinea and Benin. Trafficking of Gambian boys to Senegal for forced begging and Senegalese boys to The Gambia for the same purpose is particularly prevalent. Gambian women and girls are trafficked to Senegal for domestic servitude, and possibly for sexual exploitation. Gambian women and children may be trafficked to Europe through trafficking schemes disguised as migrant smuggling. Reports in the last two years of Gambian, Senegalese, and nationals of other neighboring countries being transported from The Gambia to Spain by boat appear to be predominantly cases of smuggling rather than trafficking. - U.S. State Dept Trafficking in Persons Report, June, 2008 [

          Comment on Letter: The one way forward is Medicare for all by B.E. Vickroy      Cache   Translate Page      
https://mountainx.com/opinion/letter-the-one-way-forward-is-medicare-for-all/#comments Universal Medical Care - from the perspective of a 3xin 3yr patient in AR & CA hospitals. I had only single room, excellent care, and private health insurance. I don't know if these hospitals [MERCY -SCRIPS] have multi-bed wards. Below are snips from a discussion thread on the subject of WARDS vs PRIVATE ROOMS in nations with free medical for all care. The FOR ALL aspect is probably what drives Canuks and Brits to US hospital stays. The more who are served FREE, the level of service is diminished. It appears that even in nations with FREE MEDICAL CARE, those who can afford an extra expense, will get something similar to the US standard. Nations described: Ireland, England, Spain, China, Australia, Canada, Israel, Netherlands, Brazil. === In my experience (only ever as a visitor, so far), Irish hospitals have rooms of various sizes, from 1 bed up to 6 beds. === From personal experience most hospitals in England are made up of wards with a small percentage single or double rooms. I've stayed in both but mostly on wards I'd expect this would definitely save money over hospitals with only private rooms; it's easier for nurses to see if a number of people are all okay at the same time, require less maintenance and be easier to run with a limited number of staff. I've been in a Spanish hospital (out patient only) and that was in a ward in the ER, I've also been in the ER and a couple hospitals in China. The ER had a ward, the first hospital they wanted to put me in had wards, but I eventually stayed in the building for senior Communist Party Members which had rooms with only two beds (and tv, fridge freezer, private bathroom, room service, attractive nurses etc etc). === In England it depends on the age of the hospital, but certainly there will usually be wards and some single rooms. Higher dependency wards, like Intensive Care, have fewer beds and more staff. Not sure how universal this is, but in my experience you get a room based on clinical need, or you can pay if there are any free. For the birth of one of my children I got the room because I was ill. For the other, I opted to pay £100 a night for it. === Depends on the age of the facility and whether in Australia it's a public or Private hospital. I've never seen a totally open ward, usually they're composed of a number of rooms with usually 4-6 beds to a room (public) with screen dividers and the occasional room of 1 or 2 beds for patients with high acuity. In a public hospital if you have to be admitted, you get what you're given but it costs nothing as it's all covered by medicare. People generally go to private hospitals for elective treatment to jump the waiting list in the public system and that's when it costs and you need private health insurance. === As others indicate, all countries in which I have had the pleasure of seeing a hospital on the inside have both the large wards and private rooms. So that applies to the Netherlands, the UK and Brazil (though in Brazil I think it is 100% dependent on the kind of hospital, some I think are all shared wards). === The few Canadian hospitals I've been in, they were mainly 4-bed rooms; so not quite wards, but not really private. They had curtains to draw around any bed when the patient or doctor needed the privacy. Based on the crowding, it's more spacious than the cliche "ward", but a lot more efficient use of space than the private room. Of course, that's because each room had a washroom, so 1 per 4 beds is more efficient spacewise than 1 per bed. === In Israel, a typical stay in the hospital means you are in a room with six beds. The few single rooms are reserved for serious cases, isolation, etc. The more modern hospitals have more single rooms, the older ones have mostly 6-bed rooms. Yes, it's a bit crowded and unpleasant. But ,hey, it is 100%, totally free.* *Well, almost free.......When my mother was hospitalized for 3 weeks, and it cost the family over $250---to pay for parking the car every time we visited. === HIPAA (Health Insurance Privacy and Accountability Act) may also have something to do with any conversion to single or double rooms with it's stress on patient privacy. You can't discuss a problem with a patient when others are in the same room, after all.

          Α(να)σφάλεια Ηλεκτρονικών Ταυτοτήτων: Χάος στην Ισπανία με τα ελαττώματα ασφαλείας του τσιπ      Cache   Translate Page      
Όταν οι ερευνητές ασφάλειας ανακάλυψαν τον περασμένο μήνα ότι το ασφαλές υλικό που κατασκευάστηκε από την Infineon Technologies της Γερμανίας δεν ήταν τελικά τόσο ασφαλές, ήταν σαφές ότι θα υπάρξουν σημαντικές επιπτώσεις.
Υπάρχουν πολλές smartcards και άλλες συσκευές εκεί έξω, που έχουν τσιπ Infineon μέσα τους, και το ελάττωμα "ROCA" στον βασικό αλγόριθμο γενιάς ζεύγους του Infineon έδωσε τη δυνατότητα σε κάποιον να ανακαλύψει το ιδιωτικό κλειδί ενός στόχου, απλώς γνωρίζοντας το δημόσιο κλειδί του.
Τώρα, σε μια ανάλογη περίπτωση με την πρόσφατη εμπειρία της Εσθονίας, η Ισπανία φαίνεται να έχει μεγαλύτερη - και αναμφισβήτητα πιο χαοτική - δυσκολία στη διαχείριση των συνεπειών για τις  Έξυπνες Κάρτες/Εθνικές Ταυτότητές της.
Το μεγάλο ελάττωμα ασφαλείας της Εσθονίας επηρέασε μόνο περίπου 760.000 Κάρτες, αν και οι Εσθονοί χρησιμοποιούν πραγματικά τις Κάρτες τους για μια μεγάλη ποικιλία δημόσιων και ιδιωτικών υπηρεσιών.
Σε αντίθεση με αυτό το ποσοστό, στην Ισπανία υπάρχουν περίπου 60 εκατομμύρια έξυπνες Κάρτες/Ταυτότητες. Ωστόσο, σύμφωνα με ένα άρθρο της El País, οι Ισπανοί χρησιμοποιούσαν τις δικές τους μόνο σε ποσοστό 0,02 % σε εφαρμογές δημοσίων υπηρεσιών, όταν έγινε η έρευνα πριν μερικά χρόνια.
Ο Dan Cvrcek είναι ο διευθύνων σύμβουλος της εταιρίας ασφαλείας Enigma Bridge, η οποία ιδρύθηκε από ερευνητές που βρήκαν το ελάττωμα της ROCA.
Είπε στον ZDNet ότι η εκμετάλλευση του ελαττώματος θα μπορούσε να επιτρέψει σε επιτιθέμενους να αναστρέψουν ή να ακυρώσουν τα συμβόλαια που υπέγραψαν οι άνθρωποι, εν μέρει επειδή οι Ισπανοί δεν χρησιμοποιούν χρονικά σήματα για πολύ σημαντικές υπογραφές.
"Εξακολουθώ να μην νομίζω ότι μπορείς να κάνεις μια μεγάλη επίθεση που θα στοχεύει πολλούς ανθρώπους," είπε ο Cvrcek.
Ωστόσο, πρόσθεσε, το κόστος μιας μεμονωμένης επίθεσης "μειώθηκε ραγδαία". Η υπόθεση ήταν ότι η επίθεση κοστίζει μεταξύ $20.000 και $40.000, αλλά τώρα κοστίζει "ρεαλιστικά $2.000".


Κάθε Κάρτα/Ταυτότητα, γνωστή ως DNIe, διαθέτει ένα τσιπ που περιέχει δύο πιστοποιητικά, ένα για ταυτοποίηση και ένα για την ηλεκτρονική υπογραφή πράξεων.
Σύμφωνα με την El Diario, οι αρχές αντέδρασαν στη αποκάλυψη της τρωτότητας του τσίπ Infineon τον Οκτώβριο, ανακαλώντας, στις 6 Νοεμβρίου, όλα τα πιστοποιητικά που εκδόθηκαν από τον Απρίλιο του 2015.
Επιπλέον, οι αρχές έχουν απαγορεύσει στους πολίτες να υπογράφουν (ηλεκτρονικά) έγγραφα με την Κάρτα/Ταυτότητα στα τερματικά αυτοεξυπηρέτησης που βρίσκονται σε πολλούς αστυνομικούς σταθμούς.
Αυτή η απόφαση επηρεάζει κάθε Κάρτα/Ταυτότητα, όχι μόνο εκείνες που έχουν το ελάττωμα. Ωστόσο, οι άνθρωποι μπορούν ακόμα να υπογράψουν ψηφιακά έγγραφα online, χρησιμοποιώντας έναν μικρό αναγνώστη καρτών που συνδέεται με τους υπολογιστές τους.
Οι αναγνώστες χρειάζονται για την αναβάθμιση των Καρτών/Ταυτοτήτων που υπέστησαν τη ζημιά. Ωστόσο, δεν υπάρχουν ακόμα ενδείξεις για το πότε θα ενημερωθούν οι Κάρτες/Ταυτότητες που υπέστησαν τη ζημιά. Πράγματι, δεν φαίνεται να υπάρχουν πολλές επίσημες πληροφορίες, κάτι που δεν έχει περάσει απαρατήρητο στον ισπανικό τεχνολογικό τύπο.
"Ούτε η αστυνομία ούτε άλλοι δημόσιοι φορείς έχουν δώσει περισσότερες πληροφορίες μέσω των λογαριασμών των κοινωνικών μέσων ενημέρωσης σχετικά με τον αντίκτυπο της ευπάθειας και τον τρόπο δράσης του πολίτη σε περίπτωση που έχει επηρεαστεί από τη ζημιά", δήλωσε η Xataka.
Τουλάχιστον, η Izenpe, η Βασκική αρχή πιστοποίησης, η οποία έχει ανακαλέσει 30.000 πιστοποιητικά, έχει δώσει πληροφορίες για τον τρόπο αντικατάστασής τους, πρόσθεσε το blog.
Εν μέσω αυτού του χάους, φαίνεται επίσης ότι ορισμένοι άνθρωποι με πρόσφατα εκδοθείσες κάρτες DNIe εξακολουθούν να μπορούν να τις χρησιμοποιήσουν, παρά την υποτιθέμενη ανάκληση των πιστοποιητικών τους. "Δεν με πειράζει αν συνεχίσει έτσι μέχρι να υπάρξουν νέα πιστοποιητικά", τουιτάρισε ένας χρήστης.
Ο Toomas Ilves, πρώην πρόεδρος της Εσθονίας, δήλωσε νωρίτερα αυτή την εβδομάδα ότι πίστευε ότι εκατομμύρια άνθρωποι σε διάφορες χώρες, έχουν πληγεί από το ελάττωμα της ROCA, αλλά οι αρχές τους «σιώπησαν».

Blood Collection Industry By Product (edta Tubes,serum-separating Tubes, Blood Bags, Needles And Syringes, Heparin Tubes, Plasma-separating Tubes And Other Products), Application (treatment And Diagnostics) And End User (diagnostics Centres, Hospitals, Blood Banks And Other Applications)- Global Industry Analysis And Forecast To 2023

Las Vegas, NV -- (ReleaseWire) -- 09/12/2018 -- The Blood Collection Industry was worth USD 7.06 billion in 2014 and is expected to reach approximately USD 11.35 billion by 2023, while registering itself at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.42% during the forecast period. Expanding prevalence of infectious and non-communicable sicknesses, rising number of trauma and accident cases are the main considerations contributing toward the development. Expanding number of surgeries is another main consideration significantly advancing the development of the Industry. As indicated by the WHO, in 2012, around 266.2 to 359.5 million surgeries were performed all inclusive and this number is anticipated to increase sooner rather than later. The expansion in the quantity of surgeries, for example, organ transplant and cancer surgeries that require blood transfusion is foreseen to drive the development of the Industry.

          ¿Qué es un normie? La palabra que los hipsters usan para meterse con la gente que sigue las modas sin más, no es tan mala      Cache   Translate Page      

Normie Portada2

Normie. Derivado de normal, del lat. normālis. Adj. Dícese de la persona normal o básica. Alguien común y corriente que sigue las modas. Los normies van en manadas, como las ovejas, y para los hipsters (quienes acuñaron el término) son aburridos y nada interesantes. Se emplea para meterse con las personas felices, con una vida plena, despreocupada, sin especial interés por libros, arte o historia, con pareja, mascota… Los hipsters dirían gente común y sin nada especial.

Existen personas que son especiales por naturaleza. Aquellos que ya en el cole dieron la nota por llevar la carpeta forrada con frases de Nietzsche, por ser los precursores del corte a capas o por ser los primeros que escucharon el disco de las Spice Girls.

Y luego esta el resto. Los que descubrieron Wannabe en la radio tras escucharla en bucle, los que llevaban la carpeta con fotos de Leo en Titanic y los que empezaron a ponerse top crop para lucir el piercing del ombligo cuando los chicas populares del instituto lo hicieron.

Según Know your Meme los hipsters usan la palabra normies para calificar a aquellos que siguen modas, que viven felices, que siguen al resto, que no son especiales.

Aunque su primera aparición fue en el Urban Dictionary en 2004, hemos encontrado menciones a normies en el diccionario Oxford de coloquialismos o en el Wiktionary. Ni la RAE, ni la Wikipedia lo contemplan, aunque los hipsters no paren de usarlo. Quizá a ti te lo han dicho alguna vez. Aquí tienes 27 señales que debes cumplir para ser un normie. Y aunque debes cumplir todas y cada una de ellas para ser considerado uno, te adelantamos que puede que te sientas un poquito normie hoy.

1.- Vives en Madrid, no has ido a ninguno de sus museos, pero no te has perdido la exposición de Harry Potter que hubo en Navidad.

2.- Tuviste las agendas de Mr. Wonderful y ahora tienes las de La vecina rubia.

3.- Llevas el pelo con un corte bob después de que lo pusieran de moda Bella Hadid y Patricia Manfield .

4.- Tu película favorita está entre Gladiator, Braveheart y El diario de Noa.

5.- Tienes la biker amarilla de Zara (al igual que medio millón de mujeres españolas) y más de 5 prendas clasificadas como las más vendidas de la temporada, porque sigues todas las modas sin rechistar.

6.- En el coche escuchas Los40 y te sabes todos los éxitos de la radio.

7.- Postureo es tu segundo nombre: cuando comes fuera lo primero que haces es una foto de tu plato y cuando sales del gym un selfie para subirlos Instagram.

8.- Ves The Big Bang Theory el 100% de las veces que aparece cuando haces zapping (a pesar de que no es tan buena como parece)

9.- Usas el filtro del perrito en tus stories y fotos de Instagram.

10.- Comerías poké bowls a diario.

Aloha Poke

11.- Pero antes, habrías comido sushi a diario.

12.- Pero mucho antes, habrías comido rollitos de primavera a diario.

13.- Hiciste zumba cuando se puso de moda, luego te pasaste al running cuando era el deporte más top y ahora vas a apuntarte a boxeo porque es lo que se lleva.

14.- Usas frases como "salir de tu zona de confort" o "tienes que ser tú mismo".

15.- Usas los hashtag #aquísufriendo #nitanmal y #deterraceo.

16.- Tu sueño es ir al Coachella y hacerte una foto con shorts, botas y una diadema de flores.

17.- De cada 10 fotos que cuelgas en redes sociales, cinco son de tu mascota. Incluso puede que tengas una cuenta solo para tu mascota porque te encantan los animales.

Gato Normie

18.- Tienes al menos una foto de espaldas en la playa sin la parte de arriba del bikini, como el resto de tus amigas.

19.- Pides Puerto de Indias en el bar de tu barrio porque queda mejor en las fotos un gin tonic de color rosa.

20.- Seguiste (como todos los millennials de España) Operación Triunfo por la tele, por Instagram y por Youtube y crees que Aitana es una diosa.

21.- Cuelgas en tu muro de Facebook mensajes motivacionales porque quieres transmitir tu felicidad a los demás.

22.- Sigues a Rubijarena, Aiteda, Almaia y cualquier shippeo que crezca en RRSS.

23.- No conoces el nombre de ningún cuadro de Velázquez excepto el de Las Meninas y por una canción trap.

24.- Sabes quién es Kendall Jenner pero no quién es Hiparquía.

25.- Adoras los vídeos/gifs/fotos de gatitos.

26.- Te sabes el estribillo de las canciones de Maluma, pero no sabrías distinguir Beethoven de Chaikovski.

27.- Empezaste a ver Juego de Tronos para no perderte en las conversaciones con tus amigos.

Si ahora estás hiperventilando, no worries. todos somos normies en mayor o menor medida, porque el ser humano está acostumbrado a ir en manada, a seguir normas y porque realmente nadie, repito, nadie es tan especial como cree ser.

          Cartagena estrena realidad virtual para viajar dos mil años al pasado      Cache   Translate Page      

El Museo del Teatro Romano de Cartegena ha puesto en marcha un nuevo sistema de visitas basado en la realidad virtual, que recrea cómo era este conjunto arquitectónico hace 2.000 años. Se trata de una tecnología desarrollada por una empresa española que está revolucionando el turismo cultural.


El sistema, desarrollado por la empresa española Imageen, funciona mediante dispositivos móviles y gafas de realidad virtual, disponibles en las instalaciones del Museo.

De este modo, los visitantes pueden visualizar en tres dimensiones las recreaciones arquitectónicas que datan del siglo I "y vivir una experiencia inmersiva en la antigua Carthago Nova".

A la hora de visualizar la recreación en 3D, el usuario puede hacerlo de varias maneras. Una de ellas es a través de gafas de realidad virtual que el Museo pone a disposición de los usuarios por un precio de 10 euros incluida en las visitas guiadas.

También pueden ver las recreaciones a través de sus smartphones o tablets personales, mediante la descarga de la app Imageen-Cartagena, desde la Apple Store o Google Play, por 2,5 euros.

Cómo funciona

El usuario debe situarse en una serie de puntos de visualización virtual señalizados en el Museo, desde los cuales se puede ver el monumento en su estado actual combinado con la vista virtual del tearo.

Así, el visitante puede "viajar al pasado" y conocer cómo eran originalmente cada uno de los elementos que componían el teatro romano: la cavea (estructura semicircular en la que se situaban los espectadores); la orchestra o escenario; la fachada escénica; la galería porticada, etc.

La app también dispone de un guía virtual que acompaña al viajero durante la visita y explica, en castellano o en inglés, la transición desde el pasado al presente, así como los distintos elementos arquitectónicos y la actividad del Teatro en su época.

Además, los visitantes también disponen de un vídeo de unos dos minutos de duración sobre el lugar y un vuelo virtual inmersivo por todo el recinto.

El propósito es "intentar sumergir al usuario en el estilo de vida de las personas que habitaban en lugares históricos"

El objetivo de Imageen, además de llevar a cabo recreaciones de monumentos arquitectónicos, es "intentar sumergir al usuario en el estilo de vida de las personas que habitaban y convivían en lugares históricos como Carthago Nova".

La compañía tecnológica ya tiene en funcionamiento otros proyectos similares en diferentes ciudades españolas de la época romana, como Tarragona o Mérida, o de tipo medieval, como Espluga de Francolí.

Trouble is most of them, when they come into the country,don't integrate but stop in their own little enclaves.

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

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

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

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

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

She’s also been spotted in:

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

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

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

To recap: There is no news.

Argentina: Strange Light Visible in Skies Over La Pampa

From Quemú Quemú, Agustoni, Trenel it was possible to see a strange light that colored the sky a hue that oscilated between sky blue and green. It was possible to see the phenomenon for some five seconds. It could be a meteorite or even space junk, which cause this kind of luminosity when entering the atmosphere.

A family from General Pico driving in their car along provincial route 1 between [the towns] of Miguel Cané and Quemú Quemú said that around 20:209 hours, they saw a "blue light" that lit up the entire road and surrounding fields.

Elisabet Gallo, 34, her husband Cristian Albornoz,34, and their children, ages 14 and 3 respectively, were driving from Cané to Pico in a Ford Fiesta. "We were heading back to Pico when on the approach to Quemú, in a wide curve, everything lit up all of a sudden," said Elisabet.

The light lasted some five seconds, by her calculations. "It didn't give us time to take photos or record it with our cellphones," she said. "It was impressive, we were stunned."

She is certain that it wasn't a lightning bolt. There were neither clouds nor storms in the area at the time. "I don't know what it was, but we are sure that it wasn't a lightning bolt. It lit us up and everything went blue. I don't know if it was a UFO or a meteorite, but I'm sure it wasn't lightning," said the woman.

They weren't alone: their parents claimed seeing a similar light between Trilí and Quemú.

The same phenomenon was also witnessed by former councilman Guillermo García, who was between Quemú and Agustoni. "It was like a lightning bolt. The heavens went sky blue," he said. Yolanda Mora of Quemú offered a similar report, as did Griselda Cuadrado, who saw the same from the town of Agustoni.

Residents of Trenque Lauquen, Province of Buenos Aires, also saw an intense sky-blue light.

[A follow-up to the compelling newspaper article appeared days later with the following heading:
PARANORMAL PHENOMENON: The story of a family from Pico with the strange blue light. "I couldn't steer my car. It malfunctioned 70 kilometers after the light appeared. The article included an interview with the protagonists of this experience which later appeared on YouTube. INEXPLICATA offers an English transcription of their experience below:

Interviewer: So you were driving toward [the town of] Ingeniero Luigi when you saw the light the crossed the pampa?
Liliana Lemos: Yes, on Saturday around seven thirty or quarter to eight, before reaching School #85. I was at the wheel, and a blue light came out on the passenger side of the car.
Interviewer: On the passenger side. So what did you think?
Liliana Lemos: So far, we had been driving all right, then we said 'wow, the light!' it lit everything up. When the light fell, it hit the back of my car.
Interviewer: Everything lit up; it lit up your car? It became like daylight?
Liliana Lemos: Everything lit up, the road, the countryside, everything turned sky blue.
Interviewer: It all went sky blue...and the light got behind you?
Liliana Lemos: When the light descended, it struck the back of my car. I then saw a shape emerge from the countryside. It came out of nowhere and climbed to the middle of the road.
Interviewer: Middle of the road? So what happened to you and your car at that moment?
Liliana Lemos: It started to fail. I couldn't go forward.
Interviewer: So how long were you unable to move forward?
Liliana Lemos: Until I reached the Luigi intersection.
Interviewer: How many kilometers more or less?
Liliana Lemos: Seventy, eighty kilometers...
Interviewr: Seventy or eighty kilometers without being able to...
Liliana Lemos: Tugging and pulling, hesitating
Interviewer: Was it the battery?
Liliana Lemos: Yes, the battery, spark plugs...but it was failing.
Interviewer: You had lights in the car?



Liliana Lemos: Yes, yes.
Interviewer: So what were you feeling? Fear, I imagine.
Liliana Lemos: Yes, shock...when I saw the bundle I slowed down or I would've hit it. When I looked again, there was nothing in the road.
Interviewer: There was nothing on the road?
Liliana Lemos: There was nothing, nothing.
Interviewer: What a moment - the car lit up, everything went blue
Liliana Lemos: Everything, the car, the pavement, the countryside - everything went blue.
Interviewer: So you were able to see a number of kilometers ahead?
Liliana Lemos: Yes
Interviewer: How scary.
Liliana Lemos: At and the same time, drenched in light.
Interviewer: And you were with your husband? (camera turns to other person) You were with her?
Miguel Lezcano: Yes.
Interviewer: What did you see from the passenger seat/
Miguel Lezcano: I saw something coming out of the middle of the field and it got on the road. It lasted a second or two before it vanished.
Interviwer: Two seconds and it vanished...
Miguel Lezcano: Yes.
Interviewer: And how long did the blue light take to...?
Liliana Lemos: Four or five seconds, a second, but it lit everything up
Interviwer: Everything lit up. Like a flash, say...
Liliana Lemos: yes. And the light behind me hit the car. When that thing fell, it hit my car.
Interviewer: And you drove seventy miles with a car that was tugging along...
Liliana Lemos: Almost stalling out. It didn't work on fourth or fifth gear.
Interviewer: And I can imagine you were quite afraid.
Liliana Lemos: At that very moment it stayed, but on Sunday moment I logged on to Facebook and saw I wasn't the only witness.
Interviewer: Yes, half the province saw it.
Liliana Lemos: Yes.
Interviewer: But it gave you a headache, you say.
Liliana Lemos: Yes, a headache, a discomfort, it stayed with me.
Interviewer: And you have it until now?
Liliana Lemos: Until this very moment

Venezuela: UFOs Visitations in Venezuela

Planeta Azul appears once more, this time in Venezuela, a South American region rich in hydrocarbons, potable water and minerals. Throughout time, Venezuela has been visited by Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) and there are countless examples of sightings and even people who claim having experienced encounters with beings from other planets. There are few who can remain indifferent and not take sides in this subject, either roundly denying these theories or supporting them vehemently.

Regarding the phenomenology of UFOs in the skies of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, it is said that "numerous sightings" have been recorded in this Latin American nations. "The first of them goes back to 1900. However, due to the lack of dissemination of scientific information about these subjects, people tend to mistake natural and meteorological phenomena, or even airplanes, for UFOs.

Alleged UFO sightings have occurred in nearly all of Venezuelan territory, but eight states are considered "hot spots" due to the appearance of this phenomenon: Amazonas, Bolivar, Distrito Capital, Carabobo, Falcón, Mérida, Vargas and Zulia. "All of these sites have two common elements: an abundance of vegetation and water,#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000" although the state of Barinas gives us an interesting case of abduction and human-alien hybridization: When she tried to ascertain the source of the noise that had awakened her, Cecilia (who would rather not be identified by her real name) realized she could not move. She had not covered herself up with bed sheets because of the intense heat that night in 2005 in the city of Barinas, in southwestern Venezuela.

She was unable to see anything. Before her, there appeared a very bright green light that forced her to shut her eyes. Motionless and unable to see what was happening around her, she felt herself being sexually penetrated and unable to do anything to stop it.

She woke up around noon, unable to remember what happened later. In subsequent weeks she would find out she was pregnant.

Cecilia explained the event to one of her neighbors. She had been 'abducted' that night, and she claims that her daughter, who is now twelve years old, presents 'particular characteristics' that she refused to elaborate upon, but which caused her to remove her from school due to the harassment she suffered at the hands of other students.

It is precisely because her daughter has undergone so many bad experiences that Cecilia refused to subject her to medical tests. Her case has not be scientifically studied.

Alleged Venezuelan sightings have occurred at different times, both day and night, with clear or cloudy skies.

The data compiled shows that circular, triangular and elongated shapes - cigar type - have been seen.

The vast majority of cases received in our newsroom are classified as "chance UFO sightings" because the person was unable to see the UFO with his/her own eyes, but rather were picked up their camera lenses. In other words, the witness finds out upon downloading the image.

Planeta Azul believes that no one is qualified to state whether UFOs of an extraterrestrial origin truly exist. In fact, a UFO is not necessarily a spacecraft. Someone can toss a shoe in the air and if someone sees it, but cannot make it out, that person will have seen an unidentified flying object. UFO is not synonymous with extraterrestrial. In recent years, there have been sighting reports over nearly all social and political demonstrations that have taken place since the start of the Bolivarian Revolution," giving rise to the theory that some kind of man-made artifact is involved - one that is unknown or about which little information exists.

I believe that many things have happened in Venezuela from the political standpoint, and that this country has been beleaguered and harassed. For example, we have photos and videos of people attending the demonstrations and who manage to capture some object in the sky. Is it possible that these are objects that are still unknown to us? Are they used to spy or photograph? This is possible, particularly in the awareness that the Pentagon has developed micro drones with very powerful microphones and cameras. When delving into the UFO phenomenon, one has to look closely to sort information from hoaxes that may be taken as real. We would never dare to say that it was an alien spacecraft. We always speak in terms of alleged flying objects."

Cryptozoology: Cyclist Photographs a "Giant Worm"

Young Erick Ivan went out for a bicycle ride as he normally does. However, last night, an extra-normal event befell him on the scenic highway near the vicinity of the summit known as Cerro de la Calavera" (Skull Hill). The photograph shows a sort of "giant worm" that appears to be walking erect.


The young sportsman acknowledged that strange things like this always happen when one goes out at night. Oddly enough, al Residents of La Paz are aware of this. It rained in the state's capital that evening - an event that could have prompted this species to emerge from the scene.

We are providing the photograph taken. You be the judge.

          The EU's systematic violation of both international law and the Oslo Accords - by Eldad Beck      Cache   Translate Page      
...The EU routinely rushes to condemn any construction in "illegal" Jewish settlements beyond the Green Line. But to the EU, the illegal but non-Jewish settlement of Khan al-Ahmar is an entirely different matter.

Eldad Beck..
Israel Hayom..
12 September '18..
Link: http://www.israelhayom.com/opinions/a-historic-day-for-european-hypocrisy/

The first day of the 5779th year of the Hebrew calendar will be remembered as a historic day for EU hypocrisy: On that day, EU member states, including those that claim they are Israel's greatest friends, decided to stand with European Union foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini and release a statement that completely contradicts the supposed principles of the EU.

By calling on the Israeli government not to act in the spirit of the High Court of Justice's ruling and evacuate and demolish the illegal Bedouin village of Khan al-Ahmar, Germany, France, Italy, Spain and Britain have violated official EU foreign policy, which supports the achievement of peace on the basis of the 1993 Oslo Accords and recognizes Israel as a sovereign state.

According to the Oslo Accords, Israel is responsible for Area C until other diplomatic agreements are reached on the matter. The EU has systematically acted in violation of international law and the Oslo Accords and without coordinating with Israel to establish and encourage illegal Bedouin settlements.

The EU routinely rushes to condemn any construction in "illegal" Jewish settlements beyond the Green Line. But to the EU, the illegal but non-Jewish settlement of Khan al-Ahmar is an entirely different matter. It is the EU's stance on Khan al-Ahmar that makes its objections to "illegal settlements" that much harder to swallow.


The European Union's decision to place a question mark, as it were, over the High of Court of Justice's ruling on a matter that has been deliberated for years, and its calls for the Israeli government to ignore the High Court's decision are not just an unprecedented and insolent attempt to meddle in Israel's internal affairs, they are blatant attempts to undermine the foundations of Israeli democracy and a vote of no confidence in the independence of the Israeli judicial system.

At a time when a U.S. administration with the most realistic approach to the fundamental issues at the heart of the Arab-Israeli conflict has shown the Palestinians there is a price to be paid for placing obstacles in the path to a peace agreement with Israel, Europe has chosen to defend its Palestinian protégés in such a way that prevents any chance for an agreement to be reached.

Europe is now the greatest obstacle to reaching a regional peace agreement. And when EU representatives attend an exhibit in Khan al-Ahmar that features anti-Semitic propaganda ahead of its demolition, Europe can no longer feign surprise when it is accused of anti-Semitism.

          FRANCE: Start Date For Camping On OCS City Confirmed      Cache   Translate Page      


OCS has confirmed the start date and time in France for the premiere of the new comedy series Camping. The show, which stars David Tennant and Jennifer Garner as an unhappily married couple on a tense weekend trip, will launch on OCS City on Monday 15th October at 21.55, the day after the US season premiere.

Camping is based on the UK show of the same name, created by Julia Davis. Adapted for the USA by Jeni Konner and Lena Dunham, the team behind Girls, the eight-part series also stars Juliette Lewis, Ione Skye, Janicza Bravo, Brett Gelman and Bridget Everett. 


Camping
Walt (David Tennant) is a loving husband and father struggling to contain a mounting discontent for the life he’s built. His 45th birthday was supposed to be a delightful weekend back to nature, at least according to his obsessively organized and aggressively controlling wife Kathryn (Jennifer Garner). But when the camping trip gathers Kathryn’s meek sister Carleen (Ione Skye), holier than thou ex-best friend Nina-Joy (Janicza Bravo) and free-spirited tagalong Janice (Juliette Lewis) in one place, it becomes a weekend of tested marriages and woman on woman crime that won’t soon be forgotten. Plus bears.

Camping premieres on HBO in the USA on October 14th, on HBO 15th in Scandinavia and Spain and on HBO in Latin America on November 11th. It will air on Sky Atlantic in the UK from October.

Los Angeles - La marca de calzado española, Más34 comenzará a comercializarse en los Estados Unidos a mediados del mes de octubre. Su CEO y fundadora Adriana Balcells ha anunciado que el objetivo de la empresa es convertirse en una marca de referencia en este mercado.

Más34 llegará a suelo americano a través de la tienda online de la firma y de los puntos multimarca. Los primeros meses la marca operará bajo el nombre “Más34 by Adriana Balcells”, pero luego de unos meses esperan poder adoptar el nombre de la diseñadora “Adriana Balcells” tal como ha sido informado en un comunicado oficial de la marca.

El calzado Más34 llevará la etiqueta “made in Spain”, para Balcells España siempre ha tenido un gran potencial en la fabricación de calzados, además el país ibérico no tiene nada que envidiarle a otros con más experiencia en el sector.

Para la diseñadora este es un gran paso para su firma, de hecho ha señalado “afronto esta nueva aventura con mucha ilusión. Saltar al continente americano con un socio local que ha apostado fuertemente por la marca y ha creído en mi proyecto es muy emocionante y sin duda un gran empujón para seguir adelante con ilusión”.

World War II

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

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

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

The Further Rise of Fascism

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

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

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

Isolationism vs. Interventionism

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

America Enters the War

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


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

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

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

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

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

The Allies Winning

June 1942 was a time of the Allied forces were still responding and fighting the Axis Powers. The Axis Powers never had a long term strategy in their goals. Hitler wanted to rule Europe and murder Jewish people, Co
