          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.

          Head of Russian bank warns customers they may not get dollars back      Cache   Translate Page      

By Annmarie Hordern and Jake Rudnitsky
Bloomberg News
Wednesday, September 12, 2018

Russians with bank accounts in dollars may find they can only make withdrawals in other currencies if new sanctions proposed by U.S. lawmakers take effect.

"I am sure that all the clients of all banks should receive their money back. That's the principal approach," VTB Group Chief Executive Officer Andrey Kostin said today. "How, in which currency, is a different story."

Buy metals at GoldMoney and enjoy international storage

GoldMoney was established in 2001 by James and Geoff Turk and is safeguarding more than $1.7 billion in metals and currencies. Buy gold, silver, platinum, and palladium from GoldMoney over the Internet and store them in vaults in Canada, Hong Kong, Singapore, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom, ­taking advantage of GoldMoney's low storage rates, among the most competitive in the industry. GoldMoney also offers delivery of 100-gram and 1-kilogram gold bars and 1-kilogram silver bars. To learn more, please visit:

The U.S. Senate is considering punishing the Kremlin for alleged election meddling, including a fresh raft of measures dubbed the "bill from hell." This could bar Americans from buying new issues of Russian sovereign debt and ban Russia's largest state banks, such as VTB, from using dollars.

Kostin's comments are an indication to markets that policy makers and businesses are bracing for the worst, and could focus investors' attention on the possible fallout from sanctions, according to Liza Ermolenko, an economist at Barclays Capital in London. ...

Crystal Bridges completes the American story with "Art for a New Understanding."

Is Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art the most woke museum in the country? That's what The Washington Post suggested in an article earlier this year as the museum began to reinstall its early American galleries to, Director Rod Bigelow said, better reflect "the complexity of the American story."

The early American galleries were initially dominated by images of patriarchy and aristocracy and unspoiled scenery — the 18th century Franks family; George Washington; the Marquis de Lafayette; Mrs. Theodore Atkinson and her flying squirrel; the poet and artist gentlemen of Asher Durand's "Kindred Spirits"; romantic landscapes by Cole, Innes, Cropsey et al., Bierstadt's nostalgic scenes of Native Americans fishing and George de Forest Brush's "The Indian and the Lily." A thematic reassembly of works in the first galleries now pairs such works with a 19th century Salish cradleboard, Lakota Siouxan beaded skin pouches, an 18th century portrait of a Spanish lady; a 20th century painting, "Florida Mexicana," by Alfredo Ramos Martinez; Nari Ward's 27-foot-long installation "We the People," the words spelled out in shoestrings. The themes of the galleries are painted on the wall in both English and Spanish: The full complement of America has been invited to the party. As that redo was going on, over in the temporary exhibition galleries was the superb "Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power," a show of work by outstanding African-American artists working from the 1960s to 1980s.

Now comes "Art for a New Understanding: Native Voices, 1950s to Now," an exhibition of more than 80 artworks, including painting, video, sculpture, performance art, photography and more, opening Oct. 6. The works address contemporary issues of social justice, ridicule stereotype and show Native artists to be not a part of a solemn, monolithic culture, but as diverse as America itself, with a keen wit sharpened to a fine edge by historical affronts (like genocide) by white America.

One of the artists whose work will be at Crystal Bridges is Kent Monkman, a Canadian First Nation artist whose work would be rightly shown next to Bierstadt's "Indian Encampment." While Bierstadt renders an idyllic scene of Natives swimming in a creek near their tipis, Monkman's arch landscape "History Is Painted by the Victors" shows a Native man in high-heeled and thigh-high red patent leather boots painting beside a mountain lake and surrounded by nude white men who've cast off blue uniforms. A couple of the men are boxing, others are wrestling, one's playing a panpipe, most are languid. Monkman's used his alter-ego, warrior-in-drag Chief Eagle Testickle, to add a bit of daring snark to history painting. Monkman is a terrific artist; this work is reason enough to go to Crystal Bridges for "Art for a New Understanding." He's also painted a takeoff on "Kindred Spirits"; instead of friends Thomas Cole and William Cullen Bryant, Monkman's put a Native and a white man fighting on the rock; let's hope that is also in the show.

Also enlightening: a 1990 photograph of laughing artists Lisa Mayo, Gloria Miguel and Muriel Miguel, who in 1976 founded the feminist Spiderwoman Theater, the country's longest-running Native female theatrical company; Shan Goshan's two baskets, "Removal," in which the artist has cut a copy of the Indian Removal Act of 1830 into thin strips and used them to weave traditional Cherokee baskets; and from Crystal Bridges' own collection, James Lavadour's landscape-reminiscent abstracts "Shake."

"Art for a New Understanding" runs through Jan. 7. Crystal Bridges has scheduled all sorts of programs in conjunction with the show, including painting and sculpture workshops, films, artist talks and more. On view now is "In Conversation: Will Wilson and Edward Curtis," an exhibition that pairs photographs of contemporary Native Americans by Wilson with the early 20th century photographs of Curtis.

***

Pablo Picasso, Robert Mapplethorpe, Henri Matisse, Kazimir Malevich — these are among the artists whose works Swiss-born Martin Muller of San Francisco has collected. Muller has a Little Rock connection — he lived here in the 1970s — and it was in this town, the Arkansas Arts Center says, that he began to explore post-war American painting. Muller will return to Little Rock for the opening of "Independent Vision: Modern and Contemporary Art from the Martin Muller Collection," opening Friday, Sept. 28, at the Arts Center. The exhibition of 89 works is a survey of diverse modern and contemporary works from the old and new world, with works by such 20th century masters Corbusier (Swiss-French), Picasso (Spanish), Warhol (American) and Malevich (Russian), and contemporaries Gottfried Helnwein (Austrian), Joel Besmar (Cuban) and Frederick Hammersley (American).

Muller moved to Little Rock from Switzerland for a job with a Swiss-American company and while here spent time in the Arts Center's Elizabeth P. Taylor library familiarizing himself with American masters. In the late 1970s he decided to move west and get into the gallery business. He founded his gallery, Modernism Inc., in 1979.

As he traveled across the country to San Francisco, he's quoted in an Arts Center news release as saying, "I marveled at discovering masterpieces of modern American art, from Edward Hopper to Barnett Newman, Mark Rothko, Jackson Pollock, and later, the Pop and Minimalist artists, especially Donald Judd. Now, some 40 years later, it gives me great joy to have come full circle back to Little Rock and be able to share at the Arkansas Arts Center some of the wonderful artworks gathered along the way."

The show runs through Dec. 30.

          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.

          Happy (Belated) Birthday Tyler Hoechlin!      Cache   Translate Page      
Yes it's true!
31 years ago today yesterday (September 11, 1987)  in  (boring ass) Corona, CA
the world was blessed with the birth of none other than bae-wolf himself:

Tyler Lee Hoechlin!

💚💚💚




Tyler has been (sort of) quoted as saying that he does not usually like to celebrate his bday on the actual day anymore, as he
"feels bad celebrating something on such a horrible day in history".
He opts for something small with family if need be, saving the true celebration for before or after.

I 100% appreciate that sentiment, but I still want to take a moment to appreciate him~

Birthday shoutouts from ex Teen Wolf co-stars and good friends:

https://instagram.com/p/BnlboWNF4d_


Some quick fun facts about TyHo (for those who are only lite fans:)

  • He has 3 siblings (An older sister, brother, & 1 younger brother)

  • For his role as "Alpha Derek" in Teen Wolf, he had to gain about 15 pounds of pure muscle

  • Some of his favorite sports teams are the Chicago Cubs, the LA Kings & Dodgers AND the Anaheim Angels (what kind of Switzerland kween?!) He also stans the USC football team. Basically, he's as SoCal as you can fucking get.

  • Turned down the role of Emmett Cullen in the Twilight franchise because he was more dedicated to baseball at the time

  • His favorite foods are Mexican & Italian (un muchacho after my own heart!)


Tyler's next project 'Bigger' (a biographical look at how brothers Joe (Hoechlin) & Ben Weider launched a fitness empire and along the way discovered Arnold Schwarzenegger) will have it's premiere in Las Vegas this Wednesday (September 13th) to coincide with the Mr. Olympia competition that was created by the Weider brothers themselves. The film is set to hit theaters October 13th.

Some new promo shots:

Tyler is currently in Vancouver filming his next project, the upcoming Netlfix sci-fi series 'Another Life'.

The June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower has become one of the most famous gatherings in American political history: a flashpoint for allegations of collusion, the subject of shifting explanations by the president and his son, countless hair-on-fire tweets, and boundless speculation by the press. But secret documents reviewed by BuzzFeed News reveal a previously undisclosed aspect of the meeting: a complex web of financial transactions among some of the planners and participants who moved money from Russia and Switzerland to the British Virgin Islands, Bangkok, and a small office park in New Jersey.

Its Monday and TSN basketball analyst Jack Armstrong starts the week with his five thoughts on the NBA including a struggling Raptors defence, a pair of impressive rookie point guards in the Magics Elfrid Payton, Jr. Cheap Timberwolves Jerseys . and Shabazz Napier of the Heat, a potential problem with the NBAs new replay centre and James Johnson of the Raptors. 1. RAPTORS D: Its just not good at all right now and its a bad sign when Dwane Casey has to continually harp on it. Players are trying to just win on talent alone and that will get you beat on a lot of nights. A potentially dangerous character flaw, this team has a switch mentality, which we saw creeping in last March when they seem to think they can cruise their way through certain parts of games and pick it up when they feel like it, instead of having winning habits. Theyve given up over 101 PPG on 49 FG% and 44 3P%. If this team wants to be good to very good, it better realize that you have to respect your opponent and the game and stop trying to take shortcuts to success. It dont come easy. You got earn it and that means a much higher price has to be paid on D. Its nothing to do with schemes or Xs and Os. Do you want to lay it on the line all the time or not? Yes, I know they had free throw issues against the Heat, but weve all seen the defence in the first three games. Its not going to cut it and its time to decide how committed they really want to be. The good news is, this is all very correctable, but winning is really hard to do and you cant ever lose sight of that. Enough said. 2. ELFRID PAYTON (Magic): I love his game and potential. Hes long and athletic with terrific defensive range. Payton changes speeds and can score and create for others in the lane. Hes got good size and, as he fills out and figures it out, will be a good one. I can see why scouts were intrigued by him. Hes won me over. 3. SHABAZZ NAPIER (Heat): Hes going to be a nice back-up point guard for his squad. Napier is more of a pure lead guard than Norris Cole and Mario Chalmers. He makes the smart play and makes others better. Hes a winner and plays the game right and really hard. Napier was a good late first-round pick. 4. NBA REPLAY CENTRE: I really like the concept and it will help officials get it right more and more and thats a good thing. But my one observation is that, during a review, both teams are going to get an unofficial timeout and its going to make games longer. Maybe the NBA can consider a way to charge teams with a timeout in these instances or just reduce the number of timeouts, altogether. If not, were looking at longer games and thats not good for anyone. 5. JAMES JOHNSON (Raptors): Hes been steady so far for the Raps by playing under control on the offensive end, while being an energetic force on defence. If he keeps this up, hes going to start taking some minutes from teammates. He makes plays with many of them being impactful ones. Thats a good thing and will earn him more run.

Thornton scored his second goal of the game with 1:30 remaining in overtime to lead the San Jose Sharks to their sixth straight win, 3-2 over the Minnesota Wild on Saturday night. Marleau also scored as the two longtime Sharks shined one day after signing three-year deals that will keep them in San Jose through the 2016-17 season. "For me and Patty both to score, its a great night for us," Thornton said. Antti Niemi made 20 saves and Joe Pavelski and Matt Irwin had two assists apiece as the Sharks overcame a 2-0 deficit to get their third six-game winning streak of the season. "Theyre our guys, and we need them when were down," Irwin said. "Jumbo got us to within one and Patty tied it up and obviously Jumbo won it in overtime. Theyre our guys. Its just kind of ironic what happened." Matt Cooke and Keith Ballard scored for the Wild, who built an early lead on the opener of a four-game road trip but still lost for the ninth time in their past 10 trips to San Jose. Darcy Kuemper made 29 saves as Minnesota lost for just the fourth time in 12 games this month. "We got a point against a good team in a tough building to play," Ballard said. "For the most part we played a fairly solid game. We werent the best at times. But we hung in there and even after they got those two quick goals, I thought we responded pretty well. We just couldnt find the time to get the third one tonight." Thornton and Pavelski combined on the game-winning play by causing a turnover at the blue line. Pavelski then fed Thornton, who beat Kuemper with a wrist shot from the top of the circle to end it with his ninth career overtime goal and first since Nov. 26, 2008, against Chicago. Pavelski assisted on both of Thorntons goals in a bit of a role reversal after Thornton helped set up many of his 19 goals in the previous 21 games. "Ive been teelling Pav, Youve been scoring too much. Wholesale Timberwolves Jerseys. Start passing the puck. And he finally listened," Thornton said. "I dont too often, but Pav just made two good plays and luckily I put them in." The Wild struck first on a nifty play by Cooke midway through the first period. Cooke deflected Thorntons cross-ice pass to Brad Stuart in the neutral zone. Cooke then beat Stuart to the loose puck and skated in on Niemi before beating him with a forehand for his eighth goal. They added onto the lead early in the second when Mikael Granlund fed Ballard for a one-timer that beat Niemi. It was Ballards first goal since Oct. 6, 2011, for Vancouver against Pittsburgh, ending a drought of 114 games without a goal. But that was all the Wild would get as they managed just 12 shots in the final 39-plus minutes. They spent much of the game on the defensive as they won just 18 of 59 faceoffs. "We lost the extra point because of the face-off circle tonight," coach Mike Yeo said. "We spent the entire night chasing and its inevitable that they will put you on your heels and give them some momentum. We never started with the puck. That was the big story." Minnesota dominated the opening half of the second period, limiting San Jose to one shot in the first 11-plus minutes before Thornton and Marleau delivered a day after getting their new contracts. Thornton struck first when Pavelski fed him for a one-timer that he knocked past Kuemper on a knuckler. Just 49 seconds later, Marleau scored his 22nd of the season when Tommy Wingels fanned on the original shot but still managed to get the puck to Marleau, who deflected it past Kuemper to tie the game. NOTES: Thornton has 40 career multigoal games. ... Minnesota F Jason Pominville got his 500th career point with an assist on Ballards goal. ... San Jose juggled its top two lines the second half of the game with Matt Nieto playing with Thornton and Pavelski and Brent Burns moving to a wing with Marleau and Wingels.

          AIGLE, Switzerland -- Olympic bronze medallist and three-time world time trial champi      Cache   Translate Page      
AIGLE, Switzerland -- Olympic bronze medallist and three-time world time trial champion Michael Rogers of Australia has tested positive for clenbuterol after racing in China. Jordan Akins Texans Jersey . The International Cycling Union said Wednesday that Rogers is provisionally suspended while his national federation investigates the case. Rogers tested positive for clenbuterol, which helps build muscle and burn fat, at the Japan Cup on Oct. 20. The previous week Rogers rode to an 11th-place finish at the five-day Tour of Beijing. Widespread use of clenbuterol in livestock farming in China and Mexico has made those countries a well-known risk for athletes as it is easier to ingest the substance there. Rogers told his employer, Team Saxo-Tinkoff, that "he never ingested the substance knowingly nor deliberately and fears that the adverse analytical finding origins from a contaminated food source," the team said in a statement. Clenbuterol is the substance Alberto Contador tested positive for at the 2010 Tour de France. Contador could not prove his claim at the Court of Arbitration for Sport that he ate contaminated beef. He was stripped of his victory and served a two-year ban. Rogers joined Contador at Saxo-Tinkoff last season from Team Sky, where he rode in support of 2012 Tour winner Bradley Wiggins. Rogers left Sky after being named in evidence in the Lance Armstrong case as working with the Americans favoured doctor Michele Ferrari around 2005. In 2012, Rogers was upgraded to bronze in the time trial at the 2004 Athens Olympics when the IOC disqualified race winner Tyler Hamilton of the United States for doping. Rogers won three straight world titles in the discipline from 2003 to 05. The UCI awarded him the first title after British winner David Millar admitted doping. Aaron Colvin Texans Jersey .

World footballs governing body is considering expanding the World Cup to 48 teams and will make a decision by 2017, according to its president Gianni Infantino.The Italian suggested that 16 of those teams would go home after just one knockout match, and the remainder of the tournament would be played, as now, with a 32-team group stage, followed by a knockout phase. FIFA, which governs 211 nations, who all take part in World Cup qualifying, is expected to decide on the format for the 2026 tournament early next year.I think its obvious its not going to stay at 32 for 2026. I think its going to change, said Canadian Montagliani who was elected CONCACAF president earlier this year, following the disgraced Jeffrey Webb as leader of North American, Central American and Caribbean football.If we listened to traditionalists wed still have a 16-team World Cup. And there is a balance. You dont want 211 countries in a World Cup either.But the reality is that the World Cup is such a strong brand and inspires a lot of hope and inspiration in countries.For them just to dream about it, never mind get a piece of it, provides a lot of groundswell in those countries to promote the game.I think its an opportunity and I think the presidents right to really look at it.Should it expand? I think the answer is probably yes. I think now is, Whats the format? FIFA vice-president Victor Montagliani expects World Cup format to change Montagliani also suggested football might still be blighted by corruption if Russia and Qatar had not been chosen to host the next two World Cups.Russia will host the next tournament in 2018 and Qatar the 2022 event, with both nations winning the right in a controversial vote almost six years ago.Since the December 2010 awarding, corruption has been exposed in the global game, with then-FIFA president Sepp Blatter among those now banned. Custom Texans Jerseys. Montagliani, speaking at the Leaders in Sport conference in London, said: If Russia and Qatar wouldnt have got these World Cups, would we be in this situation now with an opportunity to clean the game? Russia will host the 2018 World Cup I think that was the starting point and the tipping point for certain things to happen. If England and the US had got the World Cup, maybe we wouldve had status quo.Im just wondering if the authorities that have stepped up their involvement in the game wouldve done that if the choices had been a bit different.Maybe the best thing that happened in football was Russia and Qatar. Watch NOW TV Watch Sky Sports for £6.99. No contract. CONCACAF has struggled with corruption perhaps more than any other of FIFAs six confederations, with Montagliani seeking to address the troubles and the image with the appointment of a first chief compliance officer and a potential re-naming of the organisation.No longer can a president or anyone else do things on a wink and a nod, Montagliani said.Right now [re-naming CONCACAF] is an idea. Were looking at it.As an organisation you always have to look to change.

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

Hello blog! I'm back. I didn't mean to drift away for three weeks. It's just that you're no longer an entrenched habit. You're a sort of a sidebar, an extraneous detail to be ignored when I can no longer focus. I've been traveling and busy with the typical traveling busyness, but that's not really an explanation for the way my thoughts fragmented until it took all of my remaining mental energy to piece together a few sentences for Beat's race updates on Facebook. 

It's been more than a little weird, to be honest — this bout of "brain fog." Perhaps I'm too much a creature of routine, dependent on my own odd but consistent patterns to function. Perhaps this is because I'm old (see previous birthday post, and now I'm nearly a month older.) Perhaps it's a reoccurring symptom of my mostly controlled but certainly not cured autoimmune disease. Perhaps it's classic fatigue, although hiking has been my only (temporary) cure for feeling generally confused, anxious, and "out of sorts." Maybe there are no reasons, and it doesn't matter. I've returned to my blog to do what I always do here, which is sort through all of my fragments and save the shinier pieces.

So we'll take it back to Aug. 26, a couple of days after Beat and I arrived in Europe for yet another round of ridiculous 200-mile mountain races — this year, the Petite Trotte à Léon and the Swiss Peaks 360. I speculate about the effects of being thrown off my routine, but have to admit after seven years, late-summer trips to the Alps are now part of the routine. Whether racing or simply crewing, these events are beautiful, overwhelming and exhausting ... and perhaps we're both too comfortable with the effects? For this reason, I tried my hardest to talk Beat out of racing this year. Although I'll never complain about an opportunity to visit this place, I thought a different sort of adventure could do us both some good. But his habits are the toughest to break. So we returned to Chamonix for the last week of August, although he vowed that this year would be the last for such racing (for at least a while.) And I vowed that if he was insincere (which I suspect), I will say home with new-to-me Rocky Mountains next summer.


But I do love being in the Alps. With only a few work obligations and fairly minimal support duties for PTL, I'd at least have a lot of time to hike. As Beat and Pieter arranged and rearranged their race gear on Sunday, I set out from our small rental chalet in Les Tines toward Mer de Glace. Similar to most bodies of ice in the world, this glacier has shrunk substantially in just the six years I've known it. The visual change was disheartening enough that I didn't feel like descending hundreds of feet along a staircase that marks the glacier's dramatic retreat in mere decades, so I continued uphill toward a viewpoint at Le Signal Forbes.

A cog railway deposits hundreds of tourists not far from these rocky paths, and it often becomes a humorous scene of folks in open-toed sandals and jeans clinging precipitously to edges. As usual, I had a deadline and wanted to cover as much ground as I could manage before it was time to head down, so at first I felt annoyed that I had to shoulder my way around all of these people. But as I watched them waver and grapple for handholds, I felt a kind of rapport. I never really belonged on the ultra trail among the fit athletes in streamlined Salomon gear, dancing over boulders as though they were tiny cobbles on a street. No, I belong with the lumbering hoards, battling our best instincts to reach a beautiful place.

The calm before the race, looking toward Mont Blanc from Les Tines at sunset. It looked like we would see beautiful weather for a few days at least.

Team "Too Dumb to Quit," Beat and Pieter, standing at the starting line of the 2018 Petite Trotte à Léon in downtown Chamonix. Beat had finished six PTLs in six years, with his Belgian friend Pieter as a partner since 2015. Each year, PTL follows a varying series of trails around Mont Blanc for 180 or so miles with up to 90,000 feet of climbing. It's not the distance or climbing that makes it a difficult endeavor, but the technical terrain — everything from chossy gullies to endless boulder moraines to unnervingly steep grassy slopes to exposed scrambling along ridges. PTL can be succinctly described as "300 kilometers of nonsense." The difficulty is compounded by fatigue, unavoidable weather changes and sleep deprivation, and the potential danger of PTL has led to my open opposition of Beat's participation since I attempted this nonsense (and realized what it really requires) in 2013. Of course, this is a battle I lose every year. So Monday morning began Beat's seventh attempt. Even he seemed less than enthused.

After the race started, I walked up the street to the start of one of my favorite climbs out of Chamonix, the "Vertical Kilometer." This tightly-switchbacking singletrack up a ski slope gains a thousand meters in about three kilometers — 3,000 feet in 1.75 miles — for a cool average grade of 35 percent. By the final hundred meters, you're clinging to cables along a narrow spine, but you're so blasted you don't even notice the exposure. My goal, as usual, was hike fast without blowing all of my fuses. I have yet to break an hour, but enjoy the challenge of trying and then mildly berating myself when my watch says 1:06. For the last 20 minutes I closely shadowed a woman who was clearly a runner (my own identity here in the Alps is more subtle, wearing baggy hiking pants and huge backpack.) I never caught her, and I think she was pleased she held me off. "That was the worst thing I've ever done," she gasped in a British accent as we crested the final pitch, which was a staircase to the cable car.

"Steep one, isn't it?" I replied. She did a little summit dance there on the platform of Planpraz, and I pumped my fist in response. But I didn't stop walking, because I'd already formulated an ambitious plan for the day amid the endorphins, and I had ground to cover.

I continued another 2,000 feet up to Brevent, then turned right to follow the broad ridge for a relaxing and scenic stroll on a most spectacular day.

Toward lunch time, I arrived at what may be my favorite place yet near Chamonix, the Aiguillette des Houches. With 360 degrees of incredible vistas and nice grassy spots to have a picnic, I settled in to check my phone for Beat's position and munch on ... let's see, what made it into my backpack today? An apple, one of those small containers of Nutella that traveled here from the World Market in Boulder, a Snickers Bar from Pieter's work (Mars Belgium.) Actually I didn't have a lot of food on me, but I was still jet-lagged so my appetite was skewed and I wasn't that hungry anyway.

Instead I just sat and enjoyed the views — looking north toward the nature reserve and the Ayères cliffs.

And west toward the village of Servoz. To the south of course was Mont Blanc, with Brevent already an impressive distance to the east. Starting down, I eyed the spot directly across the valley in front of me, a narrow ridge between the Bossons and Taconnaz glaciers called "La Jonction." From my perch, it looked so close — almost as though I could reach out and pull myself across. Of course, actually reaching this spot meant descending all of the 5,000 feet I'd climbed and then regaining it on the other side of the valley. It was a ridiculous notion, but I was operating on fear of scarcity — how many bluebird days would I see here, when I had a whole afternoon more or less free?


Of course, it takes a long damn time to descend a vertical mile, and I became disoriented on a maze trails I still remembered from 2012's UTMB, then had to regain a bunch of altitude to correct my position. By the time I returned to Les Bossons, I'd consumed all of my aforementioned lunch items, as well as half of a Payday bar I'd unearthed from the bottom of my pack. I already had to filter water from a small spring, and collected more from a fountain in town. I was exhausted. The car was less than a mile away. Still, the glaciers loomed overhead, calling to me. Happy memories of my birthday adventure, which was a week earlier, lured me farther. A six- or seven-hour hike, that's just tiring. But a ten- or twelve-hour hike? Transcendent.


Up, up, up. Actually, it takes a long damn time to climb 5,000 more feet. The half of a Payday bar did not last long, but I resolved not to eat the other half until I turned around, so I'd have enough glucose to not pass out on my way down the mountain. Still, I was quite bonked, but in that dazed, fluffy way that feels more ethereal than painful. Hoards of people passed on their way down the mountain, and then there was no one. It was blissfully quiet, with traffic from the valley humming like a far-away song — one that promised pizza.

The light began to deepen and I finally looked at my watch. 7 p.m. When was sunset? Just two hours until it would be quite dark. Of all of the items in my large pack, a nice headlamp was not one of them. All I had was my emergency light that throws a dim beam — not great for the kind of steep, loose, and rooty descending that this trail contains. Hiking after dark with poor visibility when I was already a bit dizzy seemed a bad idea, so reluctantly I started down from the saddle about 600 feet below La Jonction. I still ended up with 11,000 feet of climbing in 23 miles. And I finally had an excuse to gobble the rest of my Payday bar, which made me feel like I could fly ... for about 20 minutes. 5,000 feet is a long damn way to trudge downhill with low blood sugar.


On Tuesday morning I went grocery shopping in Argentiere and ended up hiking from there toward a prominent point called Bec de Lachat. A wide, smooth trail became tightly switchbacking singletrack, which quickly faded to a brushy game trail that shot straight up the mountain on a 45 percent grade.


The "top" revealed a long ridge that kept climbing, but it was the kind of grassy choss that I do not love, and would soon become narrow enough to tip my exposure comfort scale. So I called Bec de Lachat good, although it seemed a "short" hike at just seven miles round trip with 4,000 feet of climbing.

Nice views toward the Glacier d'Argentiere

And Glacier du Tour

Looking toward Mont Buet and that huge dam that I think is in Switzerland.

Amid the crush of Alaska time zone deadlines, I was up all night on Tuesday, but still wandered out the door reasonably early Wednesday to trudge up to Flégère. This was prompted by a sense of urgency, as there were two portents of doom on the horizon. First was the weather forecast, which promised an end to the string of bluebird days, bringing cold and rain. Second, Beat's recent voice mail informed me that Pieter had taken a bad step on a loose descent and had sharp pain in his hip that wasn't improving. They'd gone through the night in an effort to gut it out, and by morning had taken on an extremely difficult via ferrata route to a high alpine rifugio in Val Veny, Italy. They were going to attempt it, but Beat wasn't optimistic they'd continue beyond there. PTL is a team event, and with a single partner, both must continue in order for either to stay in the race. If Pieter had to drop, Beat would as well.

Clouds moved in with astonishing quickness. When I left the chalet at 9:30 a.m., skies were still crystal blue, and by 11 a.m., stinging rain pelted my face. Beat's call came in with the rain. Team Too Dumb to Quit had finally smartened up. After seven years, it seemed like the end of an era. Selfishly I was not too disappointed, because even though it meant cutting my wet hike short and driving through the tunnel into Italy, Beat's safe return from PTL meant a lot less fretting for me. I was glad I binged on mountains in the first four days, because I figured this visit to Chamonix would probably be cut short as well.

a black bar with the word RESIST in white text

One of the difficulties in resisting the Trump administration, the Republican Congressional majority, and Republican state legislatures (plus the occasional non-Republican who obliges us to resist their nonsense, too, like we don't have enough to worry about) is keeping on top of the sheer number of horrors, indignities, and normalization of the aggressively abnormal that they unleash every single day.

So here is a daily thread for all of us to share all the things that are going on, thus crowdsourcing a daily compendium of the onslaught of conservative erosion of our rights and our very democracy.

Stay engaged. Stay vigilant. Resist.

Earlier today by me: Trump Regime Redirects FEMA Funding to ICE and Trump Regime Will Triple Size of Child Detention Camp and Hurricane Florence, Part 2.

Here are some more things in the news today...

Andy Towle at Towleroad: Trump Attacks 'Incompetent' San Juan Mayor, Again Praises Himself for Hurricane Relief in Puerto Rico, Where 2,975 Died. "Donald Trump praised himself again for the 'unappreciated great job' he did on hurricane relief in Puerto Rico, where 2,975 people died, and also attacked the mayor of San Juan, Carmen Yulin Cruz, who has said that many of the deaths were the result of Trump's 'inability to get the job done.' Tweeted Trump: 'We got A Pluses for our recent hurricane work in Texas and Florida (and did an unappreciated great job in Puerto Rico, even though an inaccessible island with very poor electricity and a totally incompetent Mayor of San Juan). We are ready for the big one that is coming!'"

Thus does Trump continue his reprehensible habit of very visibly attacking, in particular, women of color who criticize him.

[Content Note: Extreme weather; displacement; death. Covers whole section.]

Kyla Mandel at ThinkProgress: Government Shutdown Looms as Trump Claims We Are 'Totally Prepared' for Hurricane Florence. "Only one day after the official death toll was published last month, Trump said that the government had done a 'fantastic job' with recovery in Puerto Rico. ...And yet many news reports and studies have shown the government was anything but prepared to deal with Hurricane Maria last year. ...And all of these risks rise to the forefront as a government shutdown looms — a shutdown the president has said he'll follow through on if Congress doesn't provide more money for his proposed border wall."

This is a really great point. Trump is saying we're totally prepared out one side of his mouth while threatening out the other to shut down the government. Ain't no federal aid getting to hurricane survivors if the federal government is shut down.

Ashley Parker at the Washington Post: 'Tremendously Big': Trump Reaches for Superlatives in the Face of Calamity.
Flanked in the Oval Office by charts showing the path of Hurricane Florence, [Donald] Trump on Tuesday issued a warning about the potentially catastrophic storm that at times felt strangely exuberant.

"Tremendously big and tremendously wet — tremendous amounts of water," Trump said, expressing something close to admiration at the expected precipitation.

Then the president turned to bragging about the federal response to past storms during his tenure, including Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico — though the estimate of nearly 3,000 excess deaths attributed to that storm ranks it among the deadliest in U.S. history.

"I think that Puerto Rico was an incredible, unsung success," he asserted.

Trump has long struggled with public displays of empathy and with rising to the role of consoler in chief. In a range of situations — from deadly shootings and natural disasters to Tuesday's anniversary of the 9/11 attacks — Trump has responded in ways that, at best, seem ill-suited to the somberness of the events.
This is something about which I've been writing for over two years, yet another character flaw that was glaringly apparent about Donald Trump even when he was a candidate, long before Election Day.

And it's important because it is part and parcel of what I wrote about yesterday: "There are many things that make Donald Trump unfit to be president. Chief among them is this: He does not care about other people. A man who does not care about other people, or what happens to them, isn't fit to lead them."

He can't express sincere concern because he doesn't feel it.

And I am very, very concerned about that as another hurricane barrels toward the U.S. coast. His apathy is deadly. We know that. We need look no further than Puerto Rico.

(Aside: "Tremendously Big and Tremendously Wet" — With everything else this grifter has stolen, you'd think he could have left me the title of my sex memoir.) (Sorry.) (Not sorry.)

Relatedly, Hillary Clinton published a terrific and terrifying thread on Twitter this morning, outlining the threat posed by Brett Kavanaugh if he is confirmed to the Supreme Court:
I want to be sure we're all clear about something that Brett Kavanaugh said in his confirmation hearings last week. He referred to birth-control pills as "abortion-inducing drugs." That set off a lot of alarm bells for me, and it should for you, too.

Kavanaugh didn't use that term because he misunderstands the basic science of birth control — the fact that birth control prevents fertilization of eggs in the first place. He used that term because it's a dog whistle to the extreme right.

When Kavanaugh called birth control "abortion-inducing drugs," he made it clear that safe and legal abortion isn't the only fundamental reproductive right at grave risk if he is confirmed. Access to birth control is, too.

Imagine an America in which women are barred from getting IUDs or birth control pills, and doctors are criminalized for prescribing them. It's an America in which women would be punished for insisting on being full and equal partners in society.

Sen. Kamala Harris asked Brett Kavanaugh last week: "Can you think of any laws that give the government the power to make decisions about the male body?" He said he was not. Because there are none.

Let's be clear: Women have just as much right as men to make the most personal health decisions without government interference. We are equal citizens and we will insist on nothing less in this country.

Please call your senators and relay the message: (202) 224-3121

[CN: Anti-semitism; fascism] Anne Applebaum at the Atlantic: A Warning from Europe: The Worst Is Yet to Come. "In a famous journal he kept from 1935 to 1944, the Romanian writer Mihail Sebastian chronicled an even more extreme shift in his own country. Like me, Sebastian was Jewish; like me, most of his friends were on the political right. In his journal, he described how, one by one, they were drawn to fascist ideology, like a flock of moths to an inescapable flame. He recounted the arrogance and confidence they acquired as they moved away from identifying themselves as Europeans — admirers of Proust, travelers to Paris — and instead began to call themselves blood-and-soil Romanians. ...This is not 1937. Nevertheless, a parallel transformation is taking place in my own time, in the Europe that I inhabit and in Poland, a country whose citizenship I have acquired. And it is taking place without the excuse of an economic crisis of the kind Europe suffered in the 1930s. ...Given the right conditions, any society can turn against democracy. Indeed, if history is anything to go by, all societies eventually will."

Applebaum is the best conservative writing on this subject today. Maybe tied with Jennifer Rubin. Out of a very small field that includes David Frum, who gets a disproportionate share of the plaudits. (It's certainly no coincidence that all three of them are Jewish.) Applebaum and I hardly agree on anything, and I've disagreements with her even in reading this piece, but we agree at least that our democracy is in grave danger, for reasons well beyond the tired narratives of "economic insecurity."

Eli Rosenberg at the Washington Post: Activists Raised $1 million to Defeat Susan Collins If She Votes for Kavanaugh; She Says It's Bribery. "[A] group of liberal activists in Maine created an unusual crowdfunding campaign that...raised money in the form of pledges that they said they would give to whoever decided to challenge Collins in 2020 if she voted for Kavanaugh's confirmation. If she votes no, the money will never be withdrawn from donors. ...'It seems kind of icky but it doesn't rise to the level of bribery because there's no agreement,' Jordan Libowitz, a spokesman for the Citizens for Ethics and Responsibilities. 'It's just the way money and politics tend to work these days.'"

Which is exactly how the Republicans wanted it, and now they're complaining that their own lax rules on campaign financing and fundraising are being used against them. I mean, trust that it wasn't progressives who angled for the ability to use enormous sums of money to influence candidates!

Fredreka Schouten at USA Today: Three-Quarters of the Secret Money in Recent Elections Came from 15 Groups. "Just 15 groups account for three-quarters of the anonymous cash flowing into federal elections since the Supreme Court paved the way for corporate and union money in candidate races eight years ago... Outside money in elections has exploded since the high court's blockbuster Citizens United ruling in 2010, allowing corporations and unions to spend in candidate elections. Groups that don't disclose their donors spent more than $800 million between January 1, 2010 and December 2016, with $600 million coming from 15 organizations, Issue One's analysis found." Welp!

Speaking of fundraising...

[CN: Nativism; abuse] Andrew Gumbel at the Guardian: 'They Were Laughing at Us': Immigrants Tell of Cruelty, Illness, and Filth in U.S. Detention. "'The conditions were horrible, everything was filthy, and there was no air circulating,' Kimberly Martinez told the Guardian of the five days the family spent cooped up in one facility they — like tens of thousands before them – referred to as 'la hielera': The icebox. Her husband added: 'It's as though they wanted to drain every positive feeling out of us.' They knew, from following the news, that their ordeal of escaping gang violence back home and trekking across desert terrain at the height of summer would not end when they reached the United States. What they did not expect, though, were days of hunger, separation, and verbal abuse that they said they endured at the hands of federal immigration officials."

Anthony Cormier and Jason Leopold at BuzzFeed: A Series of Suspicious Money Transfers Followed the Trump Tower Meeting. "The June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower has become one of the most famous gatherings in American political history — a flashpoint for allegations of collusion, the subject of shifting explanations by the president and his son, countless hair-on-fire tweets, and boundless speculation by the press. But secret documents reviewed by BuzzFeed News reveal a previously undisclosed aspect of the meeting: A complex web of financial transactions among some of the planners and participants who moved money from Russia and Switzerland to the British Virgin Islands, Bangkok, and a small office park in New Jersey. The documents show Aras Agalarov, a billionaire real estate developer close to both Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump, at the center of this vast network and how he used accounts overseas to filter money to himself, his son, and at least two people who attended the Trump Tower meeting."

[CN: War; violence; death] Spencer Ackerman at the Daily Beast: Pompeo, Mattis Bless Saudi and UAE's Brutal War in Yemen. "Batting down congressional disquiet on U.S. aid to a war that has become one of the world's worst humanitarian crises, two top Trump Cabinet members vouched for humanitarian progress on the part of their allies, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Secretary of Defense James Mattis attested Wednesday morning that both U.S.-supported nations 'are undertaking demonstrable actions to reduce the risk of harm to civilians and civilian infrastructure.' Their endorsement, called 'farcical' by Human Rights Watch's Sarah Leah Whitson, attempts to dodge a bipartisan congressional effort to block U.S. tanker aircraft from refueling Saudi and Emirati warplanes for the Yemen conflict."

[CN: Gun violence] Lois Beckett at the Guardian: 'A Human Rights Crisis': Amnesty Urges U.S. to Get Tough on Gun Violence. "American gun violence is 'a human rights crisis' and the U.S. government's refusal to pass gun control laws represents a violation of its citizens' right to life, according to a new report by Amnesty International. 'The USA is failing to protect individuals and communities most at risk of gun violence, in violation of international human rights law,' Amnesty argues. 'The right to live free from violence, discrimination, and fear has been superseded by a sense of entitlement to own a practically unlimited array of deadly weapons.'"

[CN: Disablism] Erin Heger at Rewire.News: People Are Losing Medicaid Coverage Because They Don't Understand the GOP's Work Requirements. "Thousands of Medicaid recipients in Arkansas have lost health coverage for the rest of the year after failing to meet the state's new Republican-backed work requirement. Some don't have health care today because they never knew about the stringent rules. Jessica Greene, a health policy professor at the City University of New York's Baruch College, interviewed 18 Medicaid recipients in northeast Arkansas in mid-August and reported a lack of awareness about the policy. Twelve of the 18 people Greene interviewed did not know about the new work requirement. Many of the Medicaid recipients didn't know how to report their satisfying of the work requirement online."

[CN: Anti-semitism; Holocaust denialism] Sam Levin at the Guardian: California Transit Agency Allows Ad from Holocaust Denial Group. "A San Francisco public transit agency has approved adverts from a group that promotes Holocaust denial and antisemitic views, claiming the organization has a 'free speech' right to buy train station billboards. Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) officials defended their decision to allow ads for the Institute for Historical Review (IHR), which the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has classified as a hate group that aims to 'defend Nazism' and spread Holocaust denial propaganda. ...They come at a time when antisemitic incidents have accelerated at alarming rates in the U.S. and across the world, and as far-right groups and neo-Nazis have increasingly pushed racist and fascist views under the guise of advocating for free speech."

[CN: Racism] Sameer Rao at Colorlines: MENA Actors Still Overwhelmingly Cast as 'Terrorists & Tyrants'. "Years of discussion about representation and narrative shift in Hollywood have yet to change the overwhelming representation of Middle Eastern and North African (MENA) people as oppressors and extremists who pervert Islam to justify violent subjugation. The MENA Arts Advocacy Coalition, an industry advocacy group pushing for stronger and more nuanced MENA representation, highlights this premise in a new collaborative study released [September 10]. ...MENA Americans constitute an estimated 3.2 percent of the U.S. population, but barely 1 percent of all on-screen roles. ...Seventy-eight percent of MENA characters are portrayed as terrorists or tyrants."

Ruben Loftus-Cheek hopes to make his mark for Chelsea in the Europa League over the next few weeks but has opened the door to a potential return to Crystal Palace on loan in January if opportunities continue to prove limited at Stamford Bridge.

The England midfielder made his first start of the season in Tuesday’s friendly victory over Switzerland, having been limited to 33 minutes of club football under Maurizio Sarri. The 22-year-old was understandably ring‑rusty and, while he may not start Saturday’s home match against Cardiff, he is hopeful a more cluttered schedule across three competitions will offer him game time.

          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."    
          Loftus-Cheek must learn Sarri methods to earn Chelsea chance      Cache   Translate Page      
Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek admits he will need to show Maurizio Sarri he understands his tactical demands if he is to get a chance in the team. The 22-year-old made his first start of the season in England's 1-0 friendly win over Switzerland on Tuesday, having played only 33 minutes in the Premier League since Sarri took over as Chelsea head coach from Antonio Conte. Loftus-Cheek hopes to get his chance during a busy few weeks at club level, with their Europa League campaign beginning next week with a trip to PAOK just five days after their league duties resume at home to Cardiff City. However, he conceded he must wise up quickly to Sarri's methods if he wants a run in the side. That unbeaten feeling!  pic.twitter.com/e5alJVCwEj — Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) September 3, 2018 "There are a lot of games coming up, so I think there will be more opportunities coming for players that are not playing every week," he said. "But I'm not sure when I am going to play. It is just down to me working hard in training. "A lot of my game is based on physicality and I obviously didn't feel my fittest against Switzerland, but I will build on that. "I've spoken a lot with Sarri in the past couple of weeks and he's told me I need to learn tactically and his ways in training. The quicker I get that then the more opportunities I will get to play." Should he be unable to earn a regular spot in Sarri's plans, Loftus-Cheek suggested he could be tempted by a loan move back to Crystal Palace, where he impressed last season. "Possibly, but it is still far away," he said. "There are still a lot of games to play and I just have to see what happens. "Right now, I am at Chelsea and my focus is at Chelsea and learning at Chelsea. That is in the future and we will deal with that when it comes."
          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?

          Butland reassured over England place      Cache   Translate Page      
Jack Butland has received assurances from Gareth Southgate that his England place is safe despite playing in the Championship for Stoke City. Butland earned his ninth international cap and kept a clean sheet in Tuesday's 1-0 friendly win over Switzerland at the King Power Stadium. The goalkeeper is England's only squad member picked from outside the Premier League, having been relegated with Stoke last term. And while his place in Southgate's plans is not under threat at the moment, the 25-year-old knows that situation could change if he remains in the second tier beyond this season. "You can argue the standard of opposition [in the Championship] is different, but ultimately it's still a very demanding league," the former Birmingham City man told Sky Sports. "I still have to be at the top of my game, still have to be fit, strong, train well and ultimately play well. "If I can do that I'd like to think I can stay in the squad. "If I'm in the Championship beyond this season then obviously things start to get a little bit trickier. But certainly this year, if I can keep standards high, he's reassured me I can be part of the team." Always proud to wear the three lions shirt. Pleased with the clean sheet and win. Thanks for the support! And congrats to chilli on his debut  #ThreeLions #BUT1AND pic.twitter.com/Usj0B841At — Jack Butland (@JackButland_One) September 11, 2018 Uncapped pair Alex McCarthy and Marcus Bettinelli both earned call-ups during the international window as Southgate examined his long-term goalkeeping options. Everton's Jordan Pickford remains the established number one, with Burnley trio Joe Hart, Tom Heaton and the injured Nick Pope on the fringes.

The expansion of various industries in the region, besides growth witnessed in the manufacturing sector will aid the market's expansion across these countries. Spurred by these tailwinds, the global industrial agitator market will showcase steady growth over the course of the report's forecast period.

Various types of industrial agitators are purveyed in the market. These include top entry, side entry, static, portable, and bottom entry industrial agitators.

Also top entry agitators have a long service life and they can be used on open and closed tanks alike. Top entry agitators are deployed from the top of a tank. This makes accessing serviceable parts easier, which prevents direct contact with sludge and effluent while servicing or installing an agitator. This offers obvious health and safety benefits. This as per the report is one of the chief drivers of the global industrial agitator market. In addition to this, the rising use of industrial agitators in petrochemical, gas, and chemical industries will give impetus to the global industrial agitator market.

          Balthus - Fondation Beyeler - September 2nd - January 1st, 2019      Cache   Translate Page      

Balthus (1908–2001) is viewed as one of the last great masters in twentieth-century art. The planned retrospective at the Fondation Beyeler will bring together a wide range of important paintings from every phase of the oeuvre of this legendary artist, reflecting the multiple ambiguities in the staging of his remarkable images. His pictures combine tranquility with extreme tension, and embody a wealth of contradictions, mingling dream and reality, eroticism and innocence, the soberly factual and the deeply enigmatic, the familiar and the uncanny, in a wholly unique way.

The Fondation Beyeler in Riehen/Basel is devoting a retrospective exhibition to the legendary artist Balthasar Klossowski de Rola (1908–2001), known as Balthus. The show is the first exhibition of Balthus's art in a Swiss museum since 2008 and the first comprehensive presentation of his work anywhere in German-speaking Switzerland.

Balthus had a long and close connection with Switzerland, extending from his later childhood years in Bern, Geneva, and Beatenberg, via his marriage to the Swiss aristocrat Antoinette de Watteville and their time together in the French and German-speaking parts of the country, to the final decades of his life in the Alpine village of Rossinière.

Balthus is viewed as one of the great masters of twentieth-century art, and is certainly one of the truly singular painters of his time. In his complex and multifaceted oeuvre, admired by some and spurned by others, he pursued an artistic approach that embodied an alternative, and a challenge, to modern avant-gardes. In his opposition to prevailing views, he refers to a whole range of art-historical traditions and precursors. Yet in his eccentric detachment from modernism, he developed his own specific avant-garde attitude, which now appears almost postmodern and contemporary.

The starting point for the exhibition at the Fondation Beyeler is Balthusʼs monumental painting Passage du Commerce-Saint-André, from 1952–1954, which has been on permanent loan to the museum for some time. This enigmatic work epitomizes the artist's intensive engagement with the dimensions of space and time in the image, and with their relationship to the figure and the object. With this focus, the exhibition will bring together some fifty important pictures from every phase of Balthus's oeuvre, looking also at the strategies employed in the staging of his often provocative images, and illuminating the elements of irony and mystery in his work. His pictures combine tranquility with extreme tension, and embody a wealth of contradictions, mingling dream and reality, eroticism and innocence, the factual and the unfathomable, the familiar and the uncanny, in a wholly unique way.

The exhibition at the Fondation Beyeler, realized with the generous support of the artist's family, is curated by Dr. Raphaël Bouvier (Curator) and Michiko Kono (Associate Curator). It will subsequently be shown at the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza in Madrid.


Balthus (1908–2001) zählt zu den letzten grossen Meistern der Kunst des 20. Jahrhunderts. Die Retrospektive in der Fondation Beyeler vereint zahlreiche bedeutende Gemälde aus sämtlichen Schaffensphasen dieses legendären Künstlers und reflektiert seine vieldeutigen Bildinszenierungen. In seinen ebenso ruhevollen wie spannungsreichen Werken treffen Gegensätze zusammen, die Wirklichkeit und Traum, Erotik und Unschuld, Sachlichkeit und Rätselhaftigkeit sowie Vertrautes und Unheimliches auf einzigartige Weise verbinden.

Die Fondation Beyeler in Riehen/Basel widmet dem legendären Künstler Balthus, mit vollem Namen Balthasar Kłossowski de Rola (1908–2001), eine retrospektiv angelegte Ausstellung. Es ist die erste zu Balthus in einem Schweizer Museum seit zehn Jahren und die erste umfangreiche Präsentation seines Schaffens in der deutschsprachigen Schweiz überhaupt.

Von Balthusʼ späten Kindheitsjahren in Bern, Genf und Beatenberg über seine Heirat mit der Schweizerin Antoinette de Watteville und die gemeinsamen Aufenthalte in der französischen wie auch der deutschen Schweiz bis hin zu den letzten Jahrzehnten seines Lebens im alpinen Rossinière bestand fortwährend eine enge Beziehung des Künstlers zur Schweiz.

Balthus zählt zu den grossen Meistern der Kunst des 20. Jahrhunderts und erweist sich dabei als einer der singulärsten. In seinem vielschichtigen und facettenreichen Schaffen, das ebenso Verehrung wie Ablehnung erfährt, verfolgte Balthus einen künstlerischen Weg, der alternativ, ja geradezu entgegengesetzt zu den Strömungen der modernen Avantgarden verlief. In dieser Abkehr bezieht sich der exzentrische Maler auf eine Vielzahl kunsthistorischer Traditionen und Vorläufer. In seiner beinahe als „postmodern“ zu beschreibenden Distanzierung von der Moderne entwickelte er jedoch zugleich seine ganz eigene Form von Avantgarde, die heute umso aktueller erscheint.

Den Ausgangspunkt für die Ausstellung in der Fondation Beyeler markiert Balthusʼ monumentales Meisterwerk Passage du Commerce-Saint-André von 1952–1954, das sich seit längerer Zeit als Dauerleihgabe im Museum befindet. In diesem rätselhaften Gemälde verdichtet sich in besonderem Masse Balthusʼ intensive Beschäftigung mit räumlichen wie zeitlichen Dimensionen im Bild und deren Verhältnis zu Figur und Objekt. Ausgehend von diesem Aspekt, wird die Ausstellung rund 50 zentrale Gemälde des Künstlers aus sämtlichen Schaffensphasen vereinigen. In dieser Perspektive sollen auch Balthusʼ teilweise provokanten Strategien der bildlichen Inszenierung und damit nicht zuletzt die Ironie und Abgründigkeit seiner Kunst beleuchtet werden. So treffen in seinen ebenso ruhevollen wie spannungsreichen Werken Gegensätze aufeinander, indem sich Wirklichkeit und Traum, Erotik und Unschuld, Sachlichkeit und Rätselhaftigkeit sowie Vertrautes und Unheimliches auf einzigartige Weise verbinden.

          Niger: Niger: Country Operation Update, August 2018      Cache   Translate Page      
Source: UN High Commissioner for Refugees
Country: Algeria, Eritrea, Libya, Mali, Niger, Nigeria, Somalia, Sudan

KEY INDICATORS

1,536 Refugees evacuated temporarily from Libya to Niger as part of the ETM (Emergency Transit Mechanism) from November 2017 – August 2018
2,094 Persons profiled by UNHCR in Agadez seeking asylum
32,183 Persons internally displaced in the Tillaberi region .

Operational Context The key situations include:

1. The Mali situation: began in 2012 with the outbreak of conflict in northern Mali. The regions of Tillaberi and Tahoua bordering Mali and hosting the majority of the refugees are increasingly affected by insecurity and terrorism. A State of Emergency was declared last year, and extended this year. There are currently 58,304 Malian refugees in Niger. UNHCR supports the socioeconomic integration of these refugees and the closure of the camps by the end of 2019 through urbanization and other programmes aimed at integration.

2. The Nigeria situation: began in 2013, with the arrival of the first Nigerian refugees across the border fleeing Boko Haram. The situation deteriorated with the first attacks in Niger territory in 2015. There are over 250,000 displaced persons in the region. The majority live in spontaneous sites or with the local population, while UNHCR manages one refugee camp, with 14,130 people.
An EU Trust Fund project is ongoing in Diffa region, aimed at supporting economic recovery and long term solutions through the construction of durable housing.

3. Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs): The displaced population in the Diffa region is extremely mixed, including refugees, IDPs and returnees. Efforts are underway to complete biometric registration of all displaced persons, including IDPs, who often face similar protection risks as refugees. However, the IDP situation in Niger has become more complex with increasing insecurity in the regions of Tillaberi and Tahoua, bordering Mali. In 2018, attacks and insecurity in the area have resulted in the internal displacement of at least 32,183 people (with a huge increase in Abala department this month). Protection monitoring, advocacy, capacity building and coordinated efforts with humanitarian actors are ongoing to ensure an adequate response to the situation.

4. Mixed Migration: Niger is a major crossroads of migratory movements northwards towards Libya,
Algeria and the Mediterranean. These migratory flows constitute mixed migration, including economic migrants as well as persons in need of international protection. In Agadez, UNHCR works to identify asylum seekers within the migratory flows and works with the government, as well as IOM and NGOs to provide these persons with information and assistance. 2,091 persons, mostly Sudanese, are currently profiled by UNHCR in Agadez. 25% are minors and 222 are unaccompanied or separated children. The situation has become more complex, with the addition of downward movements from Libya and Algeria. A new humanitarian centre is being built to accommodate and screen those seeking protection.

5. Emergency Transit Mechanism (ETM): This unique programme aims to provide life-saving protection, assistance and long-term solutions to extremely vulnerable refugees trapped in detention in Libya, through temporary evacuation to Niger. The aim is to deliver protection and identify durable solutions, including resettlement for these refugees, who are mainly Eritrean and Somalian. Their profiles mainly include survivors of torture or other forms of violence in the country of origin and/or transit countries (e.g. Libya) and others with compelling protection needs. Many of them are unaccompanied children (216) and women and girls at risk. To date, 1,536 people have been evacuated from Libya to Niger and a total of 399 individuals have departed for resettlement from Niger to France, the Netherlands, Sweden, Finland and Switzerland. Other countries offering resettlement places are Belgium, Canada, Germany, Norway the UK, and the USA.

England and Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford made it two goals in two consecutive games, providing England's winner against Switzerland. Gareth Southgate praises Marcus Rashford after the Manchester United striker scored the winning goal in England's victory over Switzerland. As Marcus Rashford keeps scoring for England, the FC crew discuss whether he should leave Man United in search of minutes in a central position. Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford has developed further as a player than Cristiano Ronaldo and Harry Kane had when they were the same age, according to England manager Gareth Southgate.

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

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

Serena Williams whispered to Osaka that the boos Osaka received after winning the grand slam event of the US Open were not for her. It was the most gracious thing Serena has said since the start of that match, and hints at her greatness as a player. But why was it whispered? And why were her ridiculous complaints spoken?

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

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

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

Local council appointees refused to endorse my work, so I did it for free.

Here is a video I made Love by Nat King Cole

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

From 2014
Oscar Pistorius acquitted of murder. A grave injustice has happened with this verdict, as yet incomplete. Pistorius murdered his girlfriend. He just wasn't convicted of it. Shades of OJ Simpson's unfair acquittal. Today is the anniversary of Steve Biko's death from an evil apartheid regime. Injustice is injustice for all time. One feels for Reeva's loved ones. A cohabiting couple must be assumed to be aware of each other's presence. A gun owner has a greater responsibility for the safe operation of the weapon. The argument that the prosecution could not prove so beyond a reasonable doubt is wrong. Had Oscar had less support, as with a normal person, he would not have been able to argue as he has. The evidence would have been deemed conclusive. It will be a complete disgrace if Pistorius ever participates in elite sport again, or gets less than a maximum sentence for manslaughter. 

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

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

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

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

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

EN: This dolmen is on display in the public area outside Switzerland's largest archeaological museum, the Laténium in Hauterive.

The dolmen was discovered in 1876 at the border between Auvernier and Colombier near the shore of the lake. Dolmen are not very common in this area, but this one was also especially well preserved, because the surface of the lake had risen a few meters and the site was for most of the last 4000 years under water slowly filled with sediments without any major distortion. The top slab was brokenm but the rest was found more or less exactly as it was erected around 3000 BC. The remains of about 20 bodies were found inside not arranged in any particular order.

The dolmen was discovered as a consequence of a lake water management project that lowered the surface level in the late 19th century. The structure was relocated three times, until it has found a new permanent home in the park of the Laténium Museum.

FR: Ce dolmen est exposé dans l'espace public à l'extérieur du plus grand musée d'archéologie de Suisse, le Laténium à Hauterive.

Le dolmen a été découvert en 1876 à la frontière entre Auvernier et Colombier, près de la rive du lac. Les dolmens ne sont pas très répandus dans cette région, mais celle-ci était particulièrement bien préservée, car la surface du lac avait augmenté de quelques mètres et le site était resté presque 4000 ans sous les sédiments sans distorsion majeure. La dalle supérieure était brisée mais le reste a été retrouvé plus ou moins exactement comme il a été érigé vers 3000 avant JC. Les restes d'une vingtaine de corps ont été retrouvés à l'intérieur non rangés dans un ordre particulier.

Le dolmen a été découvert suite à un projet de gestion des eaux du lac qui a abaissé la surface à la fin du 19ème siècle. La structure a été déplacée à trois reprises, jusqu'à ce qu'elle ait trouvé un nouveau foyer permanent dans le parc du musée Laténium.

          José María Lancho: «La licitación del galeón San José está legalmente herida»      Cache   Translate Page      
El gobierno de Colombia debería decretar la terminación del proceso de licitación para recuperar los restos del galeón español San José, no solo debido a la imposibilidad legal de su ejecución sino a las graves irregularidades que encierra el procedimiento. Así lo considera el abogado experto en patrimonio subacuático José María Lancho, que participó ayer junto a Manuel Lucena, de la Real Academia de la Historia de España, en una jornada sobre el pecio hundido en la madrileña Casa de América. España y Colombia desean encontrar una solución sobre el pecio, en torno al cual surgieron disputas por la propiedad de los restos, pues España aduce que al tratarse de «un barco de Estado», con su bandera, le amparan las normas de la Unesco para reclamar su titularidad. El anterior Ejecutivo colombiano, presidido por Juan Manuel Santos, abrió un proceso de contratación de alianza público-privada para encargar, con una licitación, la recuperación de los resto a una empresa privada, pero el actual gobierno de Iván Duque ha suspendido «provisionalmente» y hasta tres meses dicho proceso. Lancho dijo a Efe que «no sería difícil» para el nuevo Gobierno colombiano «librarse de un procedimiento que solo conduce a un doble expolio, sino que compromete la raíz de las buenas relaciones entre las sociedades española y colombiana». Así, consideró que «en un examen en rigor de la licitación, es evidente que contradice al propio derecho colombiano». El abogado citó algunos aspectos como que se prevea pagar a la licitadora con bienes procedentes del yacimiento arqueológico valorados al peso, sin considerar ni su valor patrimonial, ni del mercado cultural, ni numismático. La intención del anterior ejecutivo era adjudicar el contrato a la empresa Maritime Archaeology Consultants Switzerland AG, con la que Lancho se mostró muy crítico. Detrás de esta empresa -dijo- hay un fondo británico de inversiones con «una larga tradición de mezclar política y dinero» y que ya tuvo «una experiencia polémica en relación al uso de los pecios para obtener ventajas fiscales para sus clientes». El abogado consideró que habría que aprovechar esta oportunidad para encontrar una solución consensuada entre España y Colombia que afirmase que ese yacimiento arqueológico es un «patrimonio común y compartido». El galeón San José fue hundido en 1708 cerca de Cartagena de Indias por una flota de corsarios ingleses, cargado, según las crónicas de la época, con cerca de once millones de monedas de oro y plata. El historiador Lucena, por su parte, dijo que no hay que ver al San José como «tesoro», pues es «una burbuja de un tiempo congelado, es un cementerio de personas y una oportunidad única de generar un proyecto de investigación para entender cómo era el mundo global expresado por el Imperio español». Por ello, consideró que «no podemos permitir que el patrimonio subacuático sea asaltado». Los pecios, dijo, deben ser vistos «como estupendas oportunidades de hacer buenas prácticas en materia cultural (...)frente a la idea de que son una especie de agujero de oro que se puede asaltar sin más».

After his match-winning performance against Switzerland this week, Gareth Southgate compared Rashford to a young Cristiano Ronaldo.

Let's Talk Bitcoin

On the latest episode of The Bitcoin Game, host Rob Mitchell explains the recent trip he took to the World Economic Forum. Based in Davos, Switzerland, this international conference featured a wide number of economic experts and panelists within the international financial industry.

Sitting on one such panel titled “The Crypto Asset Bubble,” Jennifer Zhu Scott, a founding partner at Radian, later came on this week’s episode of The Bitcoin Game to discuss the trajectory of the future cryptocurrency industry worldwide, as well as her opinions on the space in her home country of China.

Becoming interested in cryptocurrency at a very early stage, Scott purchase bitcoins less from a fervent belief that it would gain value than from a desire to hold a piece of the history of decentralized technology.

As an early adopter who hails from Western China, Scott explains that she became personally invested in cryptocurrency for the fact that it is an untouchable way to store value. In particular, this is important to Scott because her family experienced the brunt of what can happen to people fully reliant on centralized monetary systems — her family lost much of their wealth and property after the Nationalists’ 1949 defeat in the Chinese Civil War and the rise of Mao Zedong.

Bringing up some of the conversations previously addressed at the World Economic Forum, Scott went on to discuss the desire for small, wealthier nations like Switzerland and Oman to become crypto-friendly hubs and the Chinese government’s motivations to crack down on decentralized platforms.

Additionally, Scott and Mitchell cover a number of other topics, including tidbits like her involvement in the hit show Silicon Valley as a consultant for cryptocurrency-related episodes. For the entire episode and others from The Bitcoin Game, visit the Let’s Talk Bitcoin Network.

Trends in the Management of Acute Appendicitis in a Single-Center Quality Register Cohort of 5,614 Patients.

Dig Surg. 2018;35(2):144-154

Authors: Dahlberg MJA, Pieniowski EHA, Boström LÅS

Abstract
Acute appendicitis is one of the most common reasons for emergency surgery. At Stockholm South General Hospital, information on all patients - 15 years or older - undergoing surgery for acute appendicitis is included in a quality register. Data on surgical method, preoperative imaging, hospital stay, intraoperative findings, and 30-day complications were recorded for each patient. From January 2004 to December 2014, 5,614 consecutive patients were registered. The percentage of patients examined with preoperative imaging increased from 30% in 2004 to 93% in 2014. The use of laparoscopic appendectomy increased from 6 to 79%. Negative appendectomies decreased from 7.5-10 to 1.7%. The mean perforation rate was 28.6%. Some form of postoperative complication occurred in 6.6% of those on whom laparoscopy was performed and 10.5% of those who underwent an open surgery, with a significant difference (p < 0.001) in the rate of surgical site infections (surgical site infections, higher in open cases) but with no difference in the number of deep postoperative abscesses. The overall hospital stay decreased from 2004 to 2014 for perforated and non-perforated appendicitis. The overall 30-day mortality rate was 0.12%. Changes in preoperative imaging and treatment strategy for appendicitis during this period resulted in a lower rate of negative appendectomies with acceptable complication rates and shortened hospital stay.

Kuala Lumpur - A lawyer for Malaysia's former prime minister Najib Razak was released on bail on Thursday after being arrested by the country's anti-graft agency for alleged money laundering related to the 1MDB corruption scandal.
Najib's lawyer charged with money laundering in Malaysia
 
Muhammad Shafee Abdullah, Najib's main defence lawyer, pleaded not guilty to receiving 9.5 million ringgit (2.3 million dollars) and to making false declarations on his income taxes. 
Shafee was charged with two counts of money laundering and two counts of avoiding taxes in a Kuala Lumpur court. He was arrested late Wednesday and his bail was set at 1 million ringgit.
Shafee said last week the payment was made for legal services he provided during the previous administration and said he was not aware of the source of the payment.
According to a charge sheet provided to the media on Thursday, Shafee allegedly received 4.3 million ringgit from Najib's personal bank account in September 2013 and another 5.2 million ringgit in February 2014.
1Malaysia Development Berhad, the 1MDB state fund, is the subject of a sweeping international investigation conducted by at least six countries - including Singapore, the United States and Switzerland - over alleged money laundering and graft by high-level officials.
Najib, who served as Malaysia's prime minister from 2009 until May this year, is a key figure in the investigation.
Najib is accused of misappropriating some 4.5 billion dollars from 1MDB, including nearly 700 million dollars that were allegedly transferred into his personal bank account.

A Series Of Suspicious Money Transfers Followed The Trump Tower Meeting: Investigators are focused on two bursts of banking activity -- one shortly after the June 2016 meeting, the other immediately after the presidential election. (Anthony Cormier, Jason Leopold, September 12, 2018, Buzzfeed News)

[S]ecret documents reviewed by BuzzFeed News reveal a previously undisclosed aspect of the meeting: a complex web of financial transactions among some of the planners and participants who moved money from Russia and Switzerland to the British Virgin Islands, Bangkok, and a small office park in New Jersey.

The documents show Aras Agalarov, a billionaire real estate developer close to both Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump, at the center of this vast network and how he used accounts overseas to filter money to himself, his son, and at least two people who attended the Trump Tower meeting. The records also offer new insight into the murky financial world inhabited by many of Trump's associates, who use shell companies and secret bank accounts to quickly and quietly move money across the globe.

Now, four federal law enforcement officials told BuzzFeed News, investigators are focused on two bursts of transactions that bank examiners deemed suspicious: one a short time after the meeting and another immediately after the November 2016 presidential election.

          High And Dry: Swiss Army Airlifts Water To Cows In Drought-Stricken Mountains      Cache   Translate Page      
Around the world, people are struggling for access to drinking water. All Things Considered is examining the forces at play in separating the haves from the have-nots — from natural disasters to crumbling infrastructure and corruption. There's a distinct sound to summertime in Switzerland. I first heard it driving up a winding mountain road at night. A curious tinkling sound was coming from the darkness around me. It got louder and closer, until I realized it was the clanging of cow bells in the surrounding pastures. For centuries, between late May and early October, dairy farmers have been bringing their cows up to graze in the high mountain pastures. But this summer, because of a severe drought in July and August, cows grazing in mountain pastures haven't had enough to drink. So water has been delivered to them. Dairy farmer Dominique Rochat, who has 110 cows, says the grass is succulent up here at 4,500 feet. Rochat spends the summer with his cows, staying in his 17th-century chalet

          Smart contracts in healthcare      Cache   Translate Page      
For researchers, funding plays an important role in accomplishing their work. In the healthcare industry, many relevant topics do not get sufficient funding because they are not profitable for pharmaceutical laboratories. Blockchain, which is based on distributed ledger technology, and "smart contracts" are seen as possible solutions to this funding problem."Blockchain will enable the crowdfunding of health-related research, thereby decoupling funding from business interest and linking it to social needs," says Simon Janin, software engineer and co-founder, chainSolutions GmbH, Zrich, Switzerland. A smart contract is a computer protocol intended to digitally facilitate, verify, or enforce the negotiation or performance of a contract. Funds that are raised for a research project, for example, can be held in a smart contract which specifies the rules on how the money can be spent. The smart contract is self-enforcing and each party to this contract knows how the contract will behave, thus enabling higher trust levels, Janin explains.Blockchain also offers a way of decentralising information without compromising integrity and security. A key aspect of decentralisation is the use of reputation systems, which can be implemented on blockchains in a transparent way. Blockchain is a digital ledger in which transactions made in bitcoin or another cryptocurrency ("token") are recorded chronologically and publicly. "One can imagine a marketplace for medical research where researchers would be awarded reputation, in the form of a token, proportionally to the quality of their research," says Janin. "This can naturally be extended to reputation-based diagnostics; a patient answers targeted questions and provides his medical data, then a pool of trusted doctors provide independent diagnostics and collegially agree on a final diagnostic."

A Series Of Suspicious Money Transfers Followed The Trump Tower Meeting: Investigators are focused on two bursts of banking activity -- one shortly after the June 2016 meeting, the other immediately after the presidential election. (Anthony Cormier, Jason Leopold, September 12, 2018, Buzzfeed News)

[S]ecret documents reviewed by BuzzFeed News reveal a previously undisclosed aspect of the meeting: a complex web of financial transactions among some of the planners and participants who moved money from Russia and Switzerland to the British Virgin Islands, Bangkok, and a small office park in New Jersey.

The documents show Aras Agalarov, a billionaire real estate developer close to both Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump, at the center of this vast network and how he used accounts overseas to filter money to himself, his son, and at least two people who attended the Trump Tower meeting. The records also offer new insight into the murky financial world inhabited by many of Trump's associates, who use shell companies and secret bank accounts to quickly and quietly move money across the globe.

Now, four federal law enforcement officials told BuzzFeed News, investigators are focused on two bursts of transactions that bank examiners deemed suspicious: one a short time after the meeting and another immediately after the November 2016 presidential election.

          Property market: A mixed story      Cache   Translate Page      

Of all the world’s luxury housing markets, none is as globally connected as London, and the super-prime £10m+ market here provides a crucial bellwether for global property investment trends.

This market has faced significant pressures in recent years. These include growing political uncertainty, in part as a result of the Brexit vote and domestic electoral turmoil, but also, more critically, some sharp increases in taxation on high value properties. A decade ago, the purchase of a £10m house would have attracted a stamp duty charge of £400,000. Today, a similarly valued property would attract a charge of over £1.4m.

Unsurprisingly, these pressures have acted to slow the top of the London market. Prices have fallen by between 10 per cent and 20 per cent over the past three years.

Supply-side data points to an

increase in choice for purchasers. Available stock has increased by over a quarter in the past 12 months, with the number of newly-available properties increasing by more than 30 per cent year-on-year over the most recent three-month period. Demand-side data tells a more mixed story, with a year-on-year decline of just under a fifth in the number of prospective purchasers active in the market in the three months to the end of August. But while the number of purchasers may have fallen, those that remain in the market are more active.

Sales of properties worth £10m+ in the three months to the end of July were 28 per cent higher than in the same period in 2017, according to the most recent data available. This was boosted by a remarkable rise in the number of £20m+ transactions, which more than doubled over the same period.

As to the question who is driving this increase in activity, the short answer is that buyers are as diverse as ever. But some themes do emerge from data. Buyers from mainland China continue to grow in number, and their £10m+ market share has trebled to more than 8 per cent over the past three years. Buyers from the Middle East have seen their market share rise from 11 per cent to 17 per cent over the same period, while Russian buyers have held steady, taking around 12 per cent of all sales. One standout trend has been the strength of domestic demand, with British buyers taking 38 per cent of all purchases: the highest level for five years. The uncertainty engendered by the Brexit process does not appear to be having a significant dampening effect on the attractions of London’s most expensive properties for local or global buyers.

Centres of excellence

One of the biggest drivers for prime residential markets globally is the demand for international education. Knight Frank estimates that a total of £2 billion each year is inve­sted in London’s prime housing ma­rket by parents looking to secure accommodation while their children are at school in the capital.

During the summer of 2018, Keystone Tutors surveyed over 130 education consultants, head teachers, heads of ad­missions, private client advisers and relocation agents to collate data on global trends regarding independent education in the UK. The countries with the greatest numbers of children represented among the institutions taking part in the survey were Hong Kong, mainland China and Russia.

The three greatest motivations for clients sending their children to school in the UK were: quality of education (87 per cent of all respondents); prestige of school name – including perceived future employment prospects (67 per cent); and to improve their children’s chances of securing a place at Oxbridge or other top UK universities (62 per cent). Other motivations included property investment and quality of life, as well as the higher cost of school fees in other countries.

Besides the UK, the most popular choices of countries to send children to for school were the US (mentioned as an option by 68 per cent of respondents), Canada (29 per cent), and EU countries (29 per cent). After these, non-EU countries such as Switzerland are popular choices. For university options, the US leads with 86 per cent of respondents confirming it as an option, followed by the UK, with Canada next (35 per cent), the rest of the EU (35 per cent) and Australia (20 per cent).

All change

In the analysis of the Prime International Residential Index (PIRI 100), published in The Wealth Report back in March, prime prices in European cities were strengthening, while Chinese cities were in general seeing moderate growth in luxury residential prices. Six months on, a focus on 20 of the cities within the PIRI 100 finds these trends persisting – and some new ones emerging. As previously forecast, price growth is slowing at a global level. Across the 20 cities tracked, average prime prices rose by 6 per cent in the year to December 2017; by June 2018, this figure had dipped to 4.2 per cent. With the cost of finance set to rise in a number of markets, more stringent co­o­ling measures being imposed, and slo­w­er growth in China’s first-tier cities, lower price growth will characterise the overall results of the Index for some time to come.

Inevitably, there are outliers. Singapore and Tokyo, for example, have seen a resurgence in growth. In Singapore, recovery is a consequence of rising foreign demand and high land bids by developers, which has fed through to new-build prices; in Tokyo, growth is linked to economic sentiment, the city’s relative value compared with Hong Kong and Singapore, and investment ahead of the 2020 Olympic Games.

Madrid continues to fly the flag for Europe, with prime prices up 10.3 per cent over a 12-month period. Berlin saw prices rise by 8.5 per cent, and  Paris, where domestic buyers, buoyed by an improved economy and cheap finance, are investing once more, saw prices accelerate 6 per cent.

US cities registered positive gr­o­wth in the year to June, reflecting the general health of the economy, with Los Angeles leading the pack at 7.8 per cent. In some cities, inventory levels are still rising, and it is likely to be 2019 before the full impact of Donald Trump’s State and Local Tax (SALT) reforms is known.

Paradise Lost

How Tourists Are Destroying the Places They Love

Travel is no longer a luxury good. Airlines like Ryanair and EasyJet have contributed to a form of mass tourism that has made local residents feel like foreigners in cities like Barcelona and Rome. The infrastructure is buckling under the pressure. By DER SPIEGEL Staff

Photo Gallery: Is Tourism Ruining Europe's Cities?

It doesn't take long before the woman at the hotel reception pulls out a city map of Porto. Look, she says, there's the Old Town and the Douro, there's the harbor and here, by the way, the pride evident in her voice, is the world's most beautiful bookshop: Livraria Lello.

It sounds fantastic and the place looks even more amazing in the photos. It's located in a two-story, neo-Gothic building with lots of dark wood, an abundance of old books, ornamentation and stained glass, and a curved staircase right in the middle. It was opened in 1906, a cathedral of books, a dream for voracious bookworms from all over the world. When traveling, we often look more for the beauty of the past than that of the present. We may even buy a book for vacation reading, to while away evenings on the Atlantic coast. It has been said that J.K. Rowling often visited the Livraria when she lived in Porto at the beginning of the 1990s, a time when she taught English and began dreaming up the Harry Potter series.

Porto is not a big city -- with just over 200,000 inhabitants, the Old Town is easily manageable. The first thing you notice when approaching the Livraria Lello is the long line in front of it. Young Japanese travelers, Scandinavian backpackers, families from France, couples from China, Americans and Germans.

An imposing bouncer stands at the door of the bookshop. To get in, you must first purchase a five-euro ticket bearing the visage of Fernando Pessoa, Portugal's most famous poet, in the shop next door. There, too, visitors must wait in line, with crowd-control barriers set up just like at the airport check-in desk. Those waiting in line are guided past shelves full of souvenirs, postcards and keychains. The standard tourist bric-à-brac.

The bookstore is every bit is as beautiful as the one in the photos, even if it's not much of a bookstore these days. No one browses through the merchandise here. They all seem to be taking pictures with their smartphones -- photos that look exactly like the more than 7,000 images already posted on TripAdvisor, the world's largest travel website, where Livraria is listed as one of the city's top sightseeing attractions.

Just like the rest of the country, Livraria Lello stood on the verge of bankruptcy four years ago as a result of the financial crisis. But even then, the bookshop had no lack of visitors. The problem was that people were buying fewer and fewer books. Someone suggested the store ought to start charging an admission fee of five euros. It may have sounded crazy at the time, but 4,000 people now visit Livraria each day while during the summer, the number of daily visitors swells to 5,000. The store had 1.2 million visitors in 2017 and revenues of over 7 million euros.

If the thought of buying a book does cross a visitor's mind, and there are many tomes to be found here -- from translations of classics of Portuguese literature to, of course, the Harry Potter series -- the ticket serves as a credit toward that purchase. It is rumoured that Livraria Lello served as the inspiration for Flourish & Blotts, the bookstore where Harry Potter buys his magic books. But Livraria ultimately feels more like a museum or a theater backdrop than a real place.

Predatory Modern Tourism

More than anything, in fact, it has become a symbol for the predatory nature of modern-day tourism -- a style of travel that is devouring all the beautiful places which drives it.

For residents of Porto, however, the bookstore has a different story to tell. It is one of economic upswing in a country that was in the throes of crisis not all that long ago. Indeed, Portugal owes its recovery in part to double-digit growth in tourism, including in the areas in the once impoverished north around Porto. Ryanair and EasyJet have been flying to the city for years, and it has long been regarded as the new in-spot for city-escape tourism. Last year, around 2.5 million foreign tourists visited the region, and half of them visited Livraria Lello. Porto still hasn't become as overrun as places like Barcelona or Amsterdam, cities where locals have begun defending themselves against the hordes of tourists who seem to be taking over. But a divide has developed in Porto -- between the tourist city and the city for locals. One can't help but wonder when a local last visited Livraria Lello. Do Porto residents also have to stand in line and pay five euros?

There were times when the hotels lining the beaches in Benidorm, in Arenal on Mallorca and along the Adriatic Sea in Italy, were symbols of the ugliness of modern mass tourism. In retrospect, though, that era seems almost quiet. Benidorm and Arenal are cities that were created so that Europeans would have a place lie on the beach in summer. They are artificial resorts and not very nice, but they do serve a purpose: as factories for mass tourism that could just as easily be removed should the need arise.

Today, these tourist reserves no longer fill the demand. The crowds of sun-seekers have grown so large on the beaches of Southern Europe, that some small bays on Mallorca should actually be closed due to overcrowding. Even along the North and Baltic seas in Germany, hotels and pensions are fully booked out in places like Sylt and Rügen.

Yet beach holidaymakers now comprise just under half of modern tourism in Europe, while the other half are cruise and city-escape travelers. For years, it's been tourists rather than local residents who have been shaping the image of some of Europe's most beautiful and unique cities. They are being transformed into museums and theme parks and are developing special zones for tourists where locals may work, but certainly don't live. Tourists sit in traditional restaurants devoid of locals as they watch other tourists. They are no longer places where people come together, but where divides seem to deepen. At times, it really does feel like a tourist invasion. They come, they stay briefly and then they are gone again, but they act as though they own the cities they visit.

The virtue of hospitality "which one wants to invoke is destroyed by making use of it," German writer Hans Magnus Enzensberger wrote back in 1958 in his widely cited treatise on mass tourism. At the time, mass tourism as we know it today hadn't even been invented yet, and traveling was still the privilege of the well-to-do. At most, those who could afford it would drive their modest VW Beetles from Germany over the Brenner Pass to Italy. For most people, a visit to Venice or Rome was something they could only dream about.

Modern-day tourism has very little in common with that dream. An ever-growing fleet of budget airlines transports millions of people to the world's beaches and sights, long-distance buses offer trips at ridiculously low prices, and cruise ships dump thousands of passengers into the ports, with as many as five vessels a day docking in Palma de Mallorca, Barcelona and Dubrovnik, pumping additional hordes into city centers that are already hopelessly overcrowded. Once there, they eternalize their memories of the sights they see in the form of selfies. After that, it's on to the next hot spot.

Travel has gone from being a luxury product to an everyday good, with the boom in discount travel and the internet opening an increasing number of new markets. If you want to spend a few days in Palma, Barcelona or on the beach, it only takes a few clicks to find the right flight and accommodation. Often at a bargain-basement price.

But the infrastructure is no longer up to the task of handling the onslaught of travelers -- and this is true in Germany as it is elsewhere. During this hot summer, chaos descended on Germany's airports, with crowds of people jostling in front of monitors as flight cancellations rose by 146 percent in the first half of the year and the number of delays by 31 percent. In Munich and Frankfurt, air traffic even collapsed entirely within a few days of each other after passengers walked through security without being properly screened. And the situation at Berlin's airports has become a national embarrassment.

'Tourist Go Home'

With overloaded infrastructure and overcrowded cities and beaches, the travel industry seems to be choking on its own success. An estimated 670 million people traveled in Europe last year and it is likely that this summer alone, the Continent hosted 200 million tourists.

It's not just Europeans exploring each others' countries. The boom is also fueled by people from countries that have benefited handsomely from globalization. Much of the responsibility for the growth in global tourism lies with members of the newly emerging middle classes in Russia and with people from the Far East and Arab countries.

They also bear a significant share of the responsibility for the growing problems. The boom, after all, is also producing losers, and many of them have begun revolting, as recently seen in the pilot strikes at European budget carrier Ryanair, whose poor working conditions and low wages are what make the airline's low-cost strategy possible in the first place.

But residents of the cities and regions affected are perhaps the biggest losers. When, for example, it becomes more lucrative for property owners to rent their apartments out to tourists on a daily or weekly basis than to locals who need an affordable place to live. Or when commuters have to squeeze into overcrowded public transportation because local buses and trains have been filled to capacity by tourists. Or when people no longer feel comfortable in their neighborhood because they have become a minority in the cafés and restaurants they traditionally frequented. That is, assuming they can get in at all or afford the new prices.

The tourism industry suddenly finds itself confronted by a group that it hadn't previously paid much attention to. Having always focused on the guests, it tended to overlook the hosts. "Tourism is a phenomenon that creates many private profits but also many socialized losses," says Christian Laesser, a tourism professor at the University of St. Gallen in Switzerland.

Often, the profits benefit very few -- the landlords and hotel owners primarily, but also, to a much lesser extent, the often poorly paid employees working in the travel sector. The rest are stuck with the noise and the mess, the high rents and the feeling of being a stranger in their own country, like being an extra in some Disney World for tourists.

In many places, that feeling has begun manifesting itself in expressions of open hostility. Activists spray paint "tourists go home" on the walls in many places overflowing with tourists, and in Mallorca, they even proclaimed a "summer of action," with protests against travelers at the airport and in hotels. In Palma, activists have thrown horse droppings at tourists. In Barcelona they have pushed people from bicycles and harassed them in cafés. In Venice, self-proclaimed pirates have taken the dramatic step of blocking cruise ships from entering the port.

The notion that tourists are foreign invaders who represent some kind of threat to the local population's cultural identity broadly echoes the way refugees are viewed in large parts of Europe. But whereas hardship has driven the refugees from their homelands, the tourists are seeking to escape the boredom of everyday life.

Barcelona has experience with both of these globalization-driven migratory movements, but the protests there have only been directed at the tourists and not refugees. Last year, 150,000 protesters even called on the government to allow more refugees into the country. "Immigration has changed the city, but tourism is destabilizing it," Britain's Guardian newspaper wrote in June, describing the mood in the city.

'Overtourism'

The travel industry has begun recognizing that its own success is increasingly undermining the foundation of its business model. "Overtourism" is the buzzword currently dominating industry conferences. Discussions are taking place about how tourist flows can be directed such that they will no longer be perceived as a threat.

But is that possible wiht the numbers of tourists continuing to rise? In the emerging countries of Asia, umpteen millions of people are ascending into the new middle class each year, meaning they can suddenly afford to travel to exotic destinations. And they do. According to industry estimates, the number of tourists globally is expected to increase by 500 million by 2030, with the Chinese making up roughly half of that growth. And many of them will want to visit Europe and its sights -- events like the lavender blossom in Provence.

It must have been during the summer of 2008, Jean-Paul Angelvin recalls. That's when a film team from China rang and asked if they could take a few shots in his lavender fields. "They filmed a young couple, and, after a few hours, they were finished. I didn't think much about it at the time," says Angelvin, an elderly gentleman wearing gray shorts and beige compression stockings. Angelvin and his family have been cultivating lavender in Provence for close to 40 years, at an elevation of 580 meters on a plateau in Valensole.

Angelvin has gone through some hard times, like when prices hit rock bottom during the 1990s. But demand picked up again, and during the lavender blossom in June and July, the small boutique the family established also managed to produce a bit of profit.

Then summer 2012 arrived and Angelvin's shop turned into a gold mine. A growing number of tour buses began stopping in front of his boutique -- buses filled with Chinese tourists. They wanted to perform exact recreations of the scenes they knew from the popular (and cheesy) Chinese TV series "Dreams Behind a Crystal Curtain." They were the shots that had been filmed four years earlier in Angelvin's lavender fields. "Never in my life did I think this shoot would have triggered such a wave," the lavender farmer says. Jean-Frédéric Gonthier of the regional tourism association estimates that 3,000 Chinese visitors came the first summer after the start of series production. Today, he estimates, there are around 60,000 Chinese visitors each season.

"To create something out of the boom other than just suffering, we have to understand the Chinese," says Gonthier. To address the need, he trained Chinese-speaking guides and also hired two people to answer questions about the region on the Chinese messaging service WeChat. Gonthier is hoping these efforts can help to change the vacationing patterns of the Chinese and motivate them to stay longer in the region rather than just rushing through.

Lavender farmer Angelvin also grasped what was happening and was quick to react. During the lavender season, he hires temporary Chinese-speaking staff. One kilometer further down the road, Pauline Jaubert expanded her lavender boutique Terraroma for the second time this spring. "We have adapted," says Jaubert, who now offers T-shirts, cookies and aprons in addition to lavender oil and soap. The Jauberts have a small restaurant on the top floor that offers Asian noodle dishes during the high season.

The farmers have become tourism professionals. Revenues at the larger lavender boutiques on the plateau are estimated to be several hundred thousand euros a year. Indeed, Angelvin's shop generates more income in good years than the lavender harvest itself.

Not everyone, though, views the guests from China as a "classic win-win situation," as Gonthier from the tourist office calls it. Jean-Jacques Valone says that a photo in the field does little in terms of cultural exchange. Valone is also a lavender farmer, but he doesn't have a boutique. "They are mostly just a bother to me," he says. "They litter the fields with paper and cut stems of lavender." Besides, the region doesn't really benefit financially when people just rush through and, at most, order a pizza and split it among four people, he says.

As might be expected, Gonthier takes a more positive view. He points out that the Chinese approach to tourism is also changing and that an increasing number of younger travelers from China are avoiding mass tourism and are instead traveling on their own and sometimes even staying overnight. Such travelers, he says, "no longer hunt desperately for a Chinese restaurant. Instead they try Provençal dishes." He sounds a bit like he's just discovered a rich vein of gold he hopes to be able to mine for some time to come. A strategy paper notes that the manner in which the tourists are welcomed and treated is vital and must be done in a "Chinese-friendly" way.  
Travel Has Become Almost a Human Right



There are many reasons a place attracts tourists -- it might be the sun, the beach or the sights. Or perhaps just lavender and a Chinese television series. But why would someone who lives in faraway Riyadh, Abu Dhabi or Doha come to an Austrian village of just 10,000 inhabitants?

In a word: the weather. In summer, the maximum temperatures in Zell am See, a lakeside town in the Alps of western Austria, are usually just over 20 degrees Celsius (68 degrees Fahrenheit). In Riyadh, temperatures can often be over 40 degrees. Pleasant temperatures, water for swimming and snow in the mountains are all draws for tourists. And who wouldn't prefer to cool off rather than sizzle?

In the city center, some restaurants have adapted by focusing more on these guests, offering menus in Arabic, pita bread and halal meat. Down at the lake, on the esplanade behind the Grand Hotel, crowds of largely Arabic tourists sit, enjoying their holiday.

Nadine Scharfenort is a geographer at the University of Passau in Germany. She has just completed a postdoctoral thesis called "The Conflict Potential of Arabic Tourism in Zell am See-Kaprun." Scharfenort says that local residents are highly ambivalent about the presence of these tourists. Some are open-minded, stressing the positive aspects, like the fact that these tourists don't drink alcohol. But others are bothered by headscarves and have general reservations about Arabs.

In the evening, as dusk settles over the lake, it starts to rain. The European tourists rush under the canopies and awnings of the adjacent hotels and restaurants. In front of the Grand Hotel, though, two small girls merrily jump into the puddles. For them, the rain is a highlight of their holiday.

The travel industry is probably the most important economic sector in the world. It's far larger than the oil industry or the automotive industry and has an estimated turnover of 7 trillion euros a year, about 10 percent of global economic output. In addition to direct revenues, this staggering sum also includes related business sectors such as the hotel trade or the transport industry with all its aircraft, cruise ships and buses. It also includes souvenir shops and travel agencies.

In Spain, popular among holiday-makers, the travel industry accounts for fully 14.9 percent of the country's gross domestic product. And in many nations -- Greece, Portugal, Spain, France and the Czech Republic, for example -- the number of people entering the country exceeds the number of inhabitants. This creates jobs and modest prosperity, but it also establishes a certain dependency, which can also be dangerous if, as seen in Turkey and Egypt in recent years, there is a sudden massive plunge in the number of travelers.

Tourists, though, have begun returning to both countries. After all, when it comes to vacation, we tend to ignore potential terrorist threats or human rights violations -- as long as the price is right and the weather is nice.

Cheap, Cheaper, Cheapest

Affordability is the main thing -- and travel has indeed gotten much cheaper thanks to the internet. Travel portals like Expedia, Trivago and Booking.com have edged out established travel agencies and even pose a threat to major European travel companies like TUI or Thomas Cook, which previously dominated the package travel market. Such websites constantly offer flights and overnight stays at bargain prices.

In contrast to holiday providers from the era of package tours featured in catalogs, these digital competitors don't operate their own hotels and they don't own airplanes, cruise ships, travel agencies or other things with expensive overhead costs. Their money is earned solely by brokering services provided by others. They can literally control prices in real time on their platforms and they constantly optimize their algorithms to generate revenues. They collect targeted data on customer preferences and are now even able to create tailor-made offerings on the fly.

This system, of course, wouldn't work without budget airlines, and without the internet, airlines such as Ryanair or EasyJet would not have become what they are today: the powerful drivers of the current tourism boom. Thirty years ago, they didn't even exist yet. Back then, Europe was still strictly regulated, with specific rules on which airline was allowed to fly to what destination. Each country had its own airline, and national airlines weren't allowed to service domestic routes in other European countries. Usually, there were also limits on the number of seats that could be offered on cross-border flights. The regulations were in place to protect the respective national airlines that were, almost without exception, state-owned.

Air traffic in Europe only gradually began opening up in 1987. Irish budget pioneer Ryanair, in particular, benefited from market liberalization, because it made excessive use of the new freedoms in air transportation. And because it was more consistent -- and brutal -- than any other company when it came to low costs. Budget carriers in Germany and Europe have a 30-percent market share today, a figure that is still growing.

Thanks to low ticket prices, travel has almost become a universal right, just like buying cheap T-shirts or shopping at a discount supermarket like Aldi or Lidl. This has also meant that a weekend trip to Berlin or Barcelona was suddenly seen as a viable alternative to an excursion to the local lake -- with dramatic consequences for the places and cities that were being visited. Barcelona, for example, has gone from being an insider tip to a mass destination, and budget airlines now have a market share of almost 70 percent in the city. At Berlin's Schönefeld Airport, budget carriers are responsible for almost 90 percent of all arrivals and departures. In the past 10 years alone, the number of passengers at the airport has more than doubled, from around six million to almost 13 million travelers.

This has helped transform the German capital city into one of the most popular destinations for overnight stays in Europe after London and Paris. During the evenings and on weekends, hundreds of young people from all over Europe can be seen partying across Berlin's central Mitte district. Although they don't leave a lot of money behind when they leave the city, they do leave tons of trash and empty beer and liquor bottles.

For years it looked as if the two systems, traditional hub-and-spoke airlines and budget airlines, could continue to grow side by side uninhibited. But this summer, the model seemed to hit its limits for the first time. Flight cancellations, delays and re-bookings have become the order of the day. According to the International Air Transportation Association (IATA), delays in air traffic in Europe alone increased by 133 percent during the first half of the year. Some airports, such as those in Frankfurt, Düsseldorf and Berlin, are now asking travelers to arrive at the airport up to three hours before takeoff so that they can cope with the masses.

The chaos at the airports began with Air Berlin's bankruptcy last year. Lufthansa subsidiary Eurowings, but also some of its competitors, secured some of the route rights without having the corresponding aircraft and crews. Demand also rose more strongly than expected. While just under 104 million guests took off from German airports in 2014, this figure had risen to over 117 million by 2017. Foreign passengers are also increasingly using German airports to catch their flights or as hubs for connecting flights.

The already heavily loaded system isn't designed for such a boom. And it's unlikely that the situation will change anytime soon. European air traffic controller Eurocontrol even expects the number of flights departing up to two hours late to increase sevenfold by 2040.

The rising stress associated with travel, however, is not enough to deter tourists. Sociologist Paolo Giuntarelli thinks he knows why: "Mass tourism is a phenomenon of our post-materialistic society. Possessions are no longer a priority -- we just want to be entertained," he says.

A City Overrun

Giuntarelli is the head of tourism for the Lazio region, with offices located in the capital city of Rome. He's here to hold down the fort, with many Romans having fled to the countryside in the height of the summer. It is too hot for them in the city.

But the high temperatures don't appear to have deterred visitors to Rome.

There are weeks when the Italian capital is literally overrun -- like at the end of July, when 60,000 altar boys and girls from all over Europe invaded the city, including 50,000 from Germany. The motto of the pilgrimage was: "Seek peace and pursue it!" Above all, though, it was the sights that they pursued.

On Tuesday night, they visited the pope. When their audience ended at around 8 p.m., St. Peter's Square was littered with plastic bottles, lyrics to hymns, Haribo bags and banana peels. The situation was similar at Pius XII Square, located just before it. The garbage bags on the side of the street had long since overflowed or burst. Even the pious produce refuse.

Rome is all about long nights on the piazza, with pasta, red wine and jovial singing. Late at night, though, tourists are no longer allowed to drink alcohol on the streets of Rome, with Mayor Virginia Raggi having decreed in 2017 that the ban would be imposed each year between July and October.

Rome needs tourists -- but it also needs to rein them in. This is most evident at the Trevi Fountain, where the first visitors start showing up early in the morning. Police stand guard around the clock so that nobody misbehaves. If someone holds their foot too close to the water, a carabinieri blows his whistle -- and those who dare to jump into the fountain face a fine of up to 450 euros under rules imposed last year by the mayor.

As a source of revenue, though, the visitors are highly welcome. Many throw coins over their shoulders into the fountain, because they believe it means they will return to Rome. Municipal workers regularly vacuum the coins out of the fountain, adding up to 1 million euros a year, which are donated to Rome's Catholic charity Caritas.

Marco D'Eramo lives right next door to Rome's Colosseum. He can monitor the daily growth of tourism right outside the front door of his seven-story building. Until about 15 years ago, all of his neighbors were Italian, but now 12 of the 40 units are holiday rentals.

Not long ago, D'Eramo set out to write down what was happening around him. But he quickly realized that there was much more to the story. So he wrote a book called "The World in a Selfie," which provides a thorough description of what he calls the "tourist era."

He believes the transformation of entire cities due to tourism follows a simple economic logic: The needs of the locals do not correspond with the needs of the tourists. Whereas a local resident might need a cobbler, the tourist wants a snack. With the rise of tourism, craftsman establishments are being transformed into fast food outlets -- and the neighbor with worn-out shoes ultimately loses out.

The transformation of an entire city happens very fast, d'Eramo has observed. If the Lonely Planet guide reports on a market, where "the locals do their shopping," more and more tourists flood the place. "At first it still looks authentic. But increasingly, items are sold that are of interest for tourists. And before long, the insider tip has become a purely tourist market."

In 2017, 14.7 million visitors poured through Rome's alleyways, representing one quarter of all visitors to Italy. Overnight visitors stayed an average of 2.5 days, much like in other major European cities.

Travelers rarely end up in the surrounding areas, in Frascati, Tivoli or other parts of the region, known as Latium. Giuntarelli, Rome's chief tourism official, would like to redirect them to the smaller towns and cities in the region, where they could experience the Italian way of life, "good food, good wine." Or follow the Way of St. Francis pilgrimage trail, which runs through Latium.

Giuntarelli extols the virtues of Latium in newspaper and radio ads and distributes pamphlets at tourism expos. One of them advertises Latium as a great site for a wedding, another presents Latium's thermal baths. Giuntarelli also wants to make the region known as a golf destination. "We're working on it," he says.

Little Money, But Lots of Garbage

Because Latium isn't alone in its problems, the region has teamed up with NecsTour, a network of 37 European regions that have committed themselves to sustainable tourism, a form of travel that satisfies economies and vacationers without harming the environment.

In other words, the opposite of cruise ships. "That is not the tourism that we want to support," says Giuntarelli.

The gigantic ships belch massive amounts of pollution into the air and contribute little to regional trade or the local hospitality industries. Their passengers are only in the city for a few hours, they spend their nights on board and often eat food they bring with them when they go on land. They leave behind little money, but lots of garbage. "Cruise ship tourism is good," says Giuntarelli with a resigned smile, "for the cruise ship operators."

In Dubrovnik, Croatia, cruise ship passengers only spend an average of 24 euros per day compared to an average of 160 euros per day spent by other visitors. The city is suffering more than most from the onslaught of the tourists. Since its picturesque Old Town became the backdrop for the fantasy saga "Game of Thrones," the number of visitors has risen dramatically. Each year, 800,000 people arrive on cruise ships alone.

Dubrovnik has 42,000 inhabitants -- and most of them prefer to stay home when the cruise ships arrive. But because not only the residents, but also the medieval city structures themselves, are suffering, the number of visitors is to be reduced to 8,000 people per day. Otherwise, UNESCO has threatened to strip the city of its status as a World Heritage site.

"A new approach is now being considered -- one that moves away from the one-sided thinking about growth that has characterized tourism policy in most cities so far," says urban planner Johannes Novy, who is currently researching urban development and tourism at London's Westminster University. He says that for too long, the question was: How do we lure more tourists to a city? "It was not about other goals, including the question of how one could work to counter the negative consequences." Novy says that tourism itself isn't always the problem, but certain aspects of it -- "for example, the party tourism that is pervasive in many cities, or the longtime unrestrained boom in holiday rentals."

Increasingly, he says, those in positions of responsibility have begun trying to combat the "growing pains" associated with the travel boom, as Novy calls it. They want to redirect the streams of tourists, as officials in Rome are trying to do, or even to limit them, as Dubrovnik is doing. Barcelona is no longer approving new hotels, Paris has strictly regulated Airbnb and other apartment-rental platforms and Palma de Mallorca has even completely banned the renting of holiday apartments on the platform. But no other city is taking measures as rigorously as Amsterdam.

The Last Resort

But still they exist, the cities and regions that welcome the tourists who are no longer as welcome elsewhere, where nobody gets worked up about constant parties and binge drinking rituals.

Daniel Stefanov is standing on a podium, squeezed between a street and the beach, where he watches the crowd as it sinks into the foam. His helpers have placed two foam cannons by the dance floor at the Megapark Dolphin, a giant, insane party venue that Stefanov has created with his business partners at Golden Sands, Bulgaria. From one cannon, the foam is spraying like raw cake batter onto the partying vacationers, while fine soap clouds are raining out of the other one. The crowd, standing in knee-deep foam, cheers.

Stefanov has come one step closer to fulfilling his goal: that of turning Golden Sands into a regular destination for partying German tourists, an alternative to El Arenal and Playa de Palma.

Fifteen years ago, Stefanov and his partner Sava Daritkov, 44, opened the outdoor nightclub Megapark Dolphin in Slatni Pjasazi, a vacation spot on the Black Sea. The club is filled with swimming pools and an adjacent dance floor. Eight years ago, they added the "partystadl," or "party city," where German pop music is played and a half-liter of beer costs the equivalent of 2 euros.

Stefanov and Daritkov have invested a lot into their dream. They imported hefeweizen wheat beer from Germany and hired singers who otherwise performed at establishments in Mallorca that are popular among German party tourists. And they began organizing foam parties. For 20 euros cover, visitors can drink the cocktails of their choice for an hour and get covered in foam, every Tuesday and Saturday.

This season has proven more successful than any that has come before. First came the wave of high-school graduates coming from Germany in the early summer. They were followed by football and bowling clubs. Their guests tend to be men and women in their early and mid-20s who only need three things for a successful vacation: "sun, sand and suds." The trend is likely to continue until late September, Daritkov says. And there is one more thing he really wants to say: "We're pleased about all the visitors."

It's a sentence that has taken on a new meaning in an age when tourists partying to excess with buckets of cheap sangria are no longer welcome in many places. Mallorca no longer wants to be a party island and has even banned nighttime binge drinking and sex on the beach. Golden Sands, the message seems to be, isn't only cheap, but the party isn't over.

Niklas, Marvin and Marcel are standing at the bar at Megapark Dolphin holding a glass of vodka with peach, wearing bright green vests with the motto of their previous trip, an excursion last year to Mallorca: "Malle 2017. Buckets for everyone." They were there with about a dozen friends. The new rules on Mallorca, says Niklas, a 24-year-old car mechatronics technician, are the reason they decided to come to Bulgaria. He says they had witnessed in El Arenal how Spanish police arrived with three cars when a bucket of sangria was spotted on the beach despite the ban. They thought the reaction was a bit over the top.

The situation is altogether different at Golden Sands. There are no residents here to complain about the ruckus.

          World leaders bid farewell to Kofi Annan      Cache   Translate Page      

Accra, Sep 13 (IANS) World leaders bid farewell to former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan at his funeral in his home country of Ghana on Thursday.

On Monday, Annan's body was transferred to the West African nation from Switzerland, where he died on August 18 at the age of 80. However, it wasn't immediately clear why the process took so long.

Among those who attended the state funeral of the Nobel Peace Prize laureate at the International Conference Centre in the Ghanaian capital were UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres, Ghana's President Nana Akufo-Addo, senior government and military officials as well as dignitaries from across the world, Efe news reported.

"Kofi Annan brought considerable renown to Ghana as UN Secretary-General and by his conduct and comportment in the global arena," Akufo-Addo posted to Twitter.

"He gave his life to making peace where there was conflict, to defending the voiceless who were powerless, to promoting virtue where there was evil."

Speaking at the funeral, Guterres said Annan was an exceptional leader who saw the UN as a force for good. "As we face the headwinds of our troubled and turbulent times, let us always be inspired by the legacy of Kofi Annan," he said.

"Our world needs it now more than ever."

There were hymns and a performance by soprano and human rights campaigner Barbara Hendricks, the BBC reported. Annan's nephew Kojo Amoo-Gottfried read a eulogy, describing how he had led a hunger strike in his secondary school to protest against the quality of food in the dining hall.

There were also a moving tribute by his wife, Swedish lawyer and artist Nane Maria Annan. She thanked Ghana for giving the world such an extraordinary man and said her husband had an irresistible aura of radiant warmth.

"His legacy would live on through his foundation and through all of us," she said.

The former queen of the Netherlands, Princess Beatrix, and her daughter-in-law Princess Mabel, who were close friends of Annan, were among the mourners.

Annan started his career at the UN in 1962 and 35 years later became the first person from sub-Saharan Africa to be appointed Secretary General.

His 1997-2006 term at the helm of the UN was marked by his programme to reform the institution and his efforts to draw support from the international community in Africa as well as leading the fight against AIDS.

In 2001, Annan and the UN were jointly awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for "their work for a better organised and more peaceful world".

          Nazi looted painting by Renoir returned to owner's granddaughter      Cache   Translate Page      
A Renoir painting stolen by the Nazis from a Paris bank vault was returned to its rightful owner Wednesday after a more than 70-year odyssey from South Africa to London, Switzerland and New York. "Deux Femmes Dans Un Jardin," painted in 1919 in the last year of French impressionist Pierre-Auguste Renoir's life, is finally back in the hands of the granddaughter of the Jewish owner who spent decades trying to get it back. Sylvie Sulitzer, the last remaining heir of her grandfather Alfred Weinberger, a prominent art collector in pre-war Paris, received the work from US authorities during a ceremony at the Museum of Jewish Heritage in New York. Although Sulitzer knew her grandfather, she had no idea about the missing Renoir until a German law firm, specialists in recovering art looted by the Nazis from Jewish families, contacted her in the early 2010s. "I'm very thankful to be able to show my beloved family wherever they are that after all they've been through, there is a justice," Sulitze
          High And Dry: Swiss Army Airlifts Water To Cows In Drought-Stricken Mountains      Cache   Translate Page      
Around the world, people are struggling for access to drinking water. All Things Considered is examining the forces at play in separating the haves from the have-nots — from natural disasters to crumbling infrastructure and corruption. There's a distinct sound to summertime in Switzerland. I first heard it driving up a winding mountain road at night. A curious tinkling sound was coming from the darkness around me. It got louder and closer, until I realized it was the clanging of cow bells in the surrounding pastures. For centuries, between late May and early October, dairy farmers have been bringing their cows up to graze in the high mountain pastures. But this summer, because of a severe drought in July and August, cows grazing in mountain pastures haven't had enough to drink. So water has been delivered to them. Dairy farmer Dominique Rochat, who has 110 cows, says the grass is succulent up here at 4,500 feet. Rochat spends the summer with his cows, staying in his 17th-century chalet

Note: This image of a celestial being, kneeling in devotion with hand raised with an offering, is unconventional in its iconography. Its style of carving, rendered in three-quarter view with shallow relief details and sensitively modeled face, is characteristic of the Northern Wei (386-594) style found at China’s main cave temples, particularly those at Yungang and Tianlongshan. Although fragmentary and originally part of a monumental frieze, this large figure, with an elegant willowy body and a subliminal smile that conveys a sense of spiritual modesty, is striking in its own right.

The dynamic pose and high topknot suggest this figure is an apsara, or feitian (‘flying in heaven’), a radiant celestial nymph that originated in Hindu culture. During the Northern Wei dynasty, these figures were used to animate and enliven votive altars, Buddhist triad groups and cave niches as beautiful enhancement to the heavenly realm. They were often depicted as graceful, enchanting ladies hovering mid-air around the Buddha or bodhisattvas performing dancing motions or playing musical instruments. It is uncommon to find kneeling depictions of apsara, although a limestone relief carving depicting one in this devout stance, from the collection of J.T. Tai, was sold in our Hong Kong rooms, 29th April 1997, lot 713, and published in Bore baoxiang Jingyatang cang Zhongguo foxiang yishu/The Treasures of Chinese Buddhist Sculptures, Taipei, 2016, pl. 5; and another can be seen on the rear wall of the Central Binyang cave, one of the main caves at Longmen near Luoyang, Henan province, illustrated in situ in Zhongguo meishu quanji: Diaosu bian [Complete series on Chinese art: Sculpture section], 11: Longmen shiku diaoke [Sculptures of the Longmen caves], Shanghai, 1988, pl. 40. 

Sandstone figures of apsara, similarly rendered in a softly rounded style, can be found in the Yungang caves located in Datong, Shanxi province; see the figures on the wall of Cave no. 6, adorned in long flowing robes as indicated by vertical incised lines, illustrated in Yungang shiku/Yunkang Caves, Beijing, 1977, pls 17 and 18; a smaller sandstone fragment of an apsara documented as being from the Yungang cave complex, formerly in the Bjorkman Collection, Switzerland, illustrated in An Exhibition of Chinese Stone Sculptures.

He has a VERY FULL mane and tail, which adds to his handsome presence. He is brave, confident, level headed, smart and willing. Also- you can ride him every day, or once a month, and he is still the same horse the next time you ride him. No fuss, he just safely will and wants to do, what you want him to do. He would excel in Dressage, Hunter/Jumper, and Eventing. He LOVES to jump:). We sold his Sire to a buyer in Switzerland (who is now in Germany), who bought him to be a Dressage stud. His Dam was sold to a buyer in the US for Dressage. He happily jumps giant solid logs in the fields (even around cows), he happily jumps any complicated and busy jump we have thrown at him in the ring, and his movement is jaw dropping gorgeous!!!! His trainer said that out of the MANY wonderful horses she has worked over her many years, this is a hard to find horse of a lifetime. He truly is stunning (a TOTAL head turner), with the temperament, brains, and athletic ability to match. If you come see and try riding him in person, you will agree!!!! His price will go up with further training.

Город Берн (Bern)

 

Берн — фактическая столица Швейцарии. Расположен в центральной части страны к северу от Альп, в долине реки Ааре. Берн известен своими живописными видами с высоких мостов. Город окружен рекой Ааре с трех сторон, по центру вдоль этого "полуострова" проходит центральная улица со множеством старинных фонтанов и ресторанчиков. 

Вдоль этой улицы, протяженностью  6 км,  находятся основные достопримечательности: от вокзала вы пройдете к часовой башне Zytglogge, оттуда мимо дома Энштейна выйдете к реке и медвежьей яме, а возвращаясь назад можно заглянуть в главный кафедральный собор и полюбоваться на дворец парламента.

Центр города внесен в список всемирного наследия ЮНЕСКО. Прогулка по старому городу в Берне, может показаться волшебным путешествием, поскольку архитектура и планировка улиц остались практически без изменений со времен позднего Средневековья. Основанный в XII веке на склоне холма у реки Ааре, Берн интересен разнообразием архитектурных стилей и своей историей. Последняя крупная реставрация города проходила в XVIII веке.

Согласно легенде, в 1191 году герцог Бертольд V Зарингенский приказал дворянину Куно фон Бубенбергу построить город на узком, покрытом дубравами полуострове. Фон Бубенберг вырубил лес, использовал бревна для строительства крепости. После разрушительного пожара 1405 года в городе появились новые здания из песчаника, и уже к XVI-XVII векам большая часть построек в городе была из нового материала.

Медведь на гербе города появился в 1224 году.

Согласно легенде, город был назван в честь первого животного, убитого герцогом на охоте. Как и знаменитая Часовая башня с часами, медведь до сих пор является символом Берна.

Главная достопримечательность в центре старого города - Часовая башня. На ней находятся самые точные часы Берна, но одновременно это и точка, от которой начинался отсчет всех расстояний кантона.

Восточный циферблат башни -астрономический, часы здесь показывают день недели, дату, месяц, фазы Луны, восход Солнца, а также знаки зодиака и расположение Солнца в созвездиях зодиака.

Каждый час механические фигуры - петух, медведи, старик Хронос с песочными часами и танцующий шут - разыгрывают представление за несколько минут до того, как часы начинают бить. Можно присоединиться к организованной экскурсии и подняться под самый шпиль башни, чтобы полюбоваться видами.

Фонтан «Пожиратель детей» представляет собой скульптуру сидящего великана-людоеда, пожирающего голого ребенка. В руках он держит сумку с другими детьми. Великан одет в остроконечную шляпу, наподобие еврейских колпаков, которые те обязаны были носить в средние века. 

Вокруг подножия колонны фонтана проходит фриз, на котором изображено шествие вооружённых медведей. Фонтан был установлен в 1545-46 Гансом Гингом на месте прежнего деревянного.

  • Вольеры для медведей - их должны вот-вот переоборудовать в специальный медвежий парк.
  • Астрономические часы - датированы 1530 г. и показывают время, день недели, расположение планет и знаки зодиака.
  • Шопинг на больших крытых рынках.

          Not every tall person plays basketball      Cache   Translate Page      
"True Talk" puts people in front of the camera who are fighting prejudice or discrimination. They answer questions that nobody would normally dare to ask directly.  David is 217cm tall, and is officially the tallest man in Switzerland. In "True Talk" he explains the difficulties he faces - and why people sometimes treat him as if he were not even there, despite - or precisely because of - his size. The 39 year old explains what life is like as the tallest person in the country and the preconceptions he hears a lot about from others.  (SRF, swissinfo.ch)
          When young people want a Swiss passport      Cache   Translate Page      
Being born on Swiss soil does not mean you are automatically Swiss. Naturalisation is therefore an option for foreigners who have been born in Switzerland and want Swiss nationality.  The process includes one or more interviews, which children from 12 years of age may also be required to complete. Swiss nationality is acquired through one blood relationship – that is, through the father or mother – or through naturalisation. In general, when a foreign family starts the process, this also includes their children. If the children are older than 16, they must put down in writing why they want to become Swiss. From age 14, they can submit their request for naturalisation individually, with the agreement of a parent.  Journalists from the Swiss Public Television RTS programme "Temps Présent" were allowed to sit in during the interviews of three young naturalisation candidates in the canton of Fribourg.  Requirements to become Swiss To make a naturalisation request, one must ...
          The world’s least blessed cheesemakers are in Congo      Cache   Translate Page      

Who will move his cheese?

EASTERN CONGO is best known for producing coltan, a mineral used in mobile phones, and refugees. But it also makes rather good cheese. At his dairy on the hillside of Masisi in North Kivu, Lambert Sinamenye churns out 12 rounds a day. After maturing for 21 days they taste like Gouda, only more salty, and are named “Goma”, after the provincial capital, 55km away.

The verdant hills of this region, dotted with Friesian cows and known as “Africa’s Switzerland”, are ideal for caseiculture. Some Belgian monks who arrived in the 1970s soon began crafting camembert. Italian missionaries whet appetites for mozzarella. In their heyday, dairies in Masisi also churned out butter, cream and yogurt.

Now, however, farmers are lucky to eke out a few dollars a day. War and lawlessness have curdled their business. Twice a week Mr Sinamenye sells his cheeses for the equivalent of $3 each to a trader who straps them onto the back of a motorbike...

          Adhesives & Sealants Market Worth $71.99 Billion by 2023      Cache   Translate Page      

Adhesives & Sealants Market by Adhesive Technology (Water-based, Solvent-based, Hot-Melt, Reactive & Others), Sealant Resin (Silicone, Polyurethane, Plastisol, Emulsion, Butyl, Polysulfide), Application, and Region - Global Forecasts to 2023

Northbrook, IL -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/13/2018 -- The adhesives & sealants market is driven by the growing trend of lightweight and low carbon emitting vehicles and increasing demand from the building & construction industry. Stringent environmental regulations in Europe and North America are restraining the market growth while the increasing demand for green adhesives offers opportunities to the manufacturers. Acceptance of adhesives and sealants in applications such as paper & packaging, building & construction, woodworking, consumer/DIY, automotive & transportation, leather & footwear, assembly, and others is mainly driving the market growth.

To know about the assumptions considered for the study, request sample copy of the report at https://www.marketsandmarkets.com/requestsample.asp?id=421

Based on adhesive formulating technology, the reactive & others segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

The reactive & others segment is projected to grow at a higher rate than the other adhesive formulating technology segment because reactive adhesives play a vital role in various applications for the adhesion of materials, such as steel, aluminum, and other components, used in the automotive and construction industries. Polyurethanes and modified acrylics are some of the primarily used reactive adhesives in the assembly operation of cars and other vehicles.

Based on sealant resin, the polyurethane segment of the adhesives & sealants market is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

The polyurethane segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2018 to 2023. It is most widely used in automotive, parking deck & sidewalk sealing, construction, and marine applications. More than 90% of automobiles are produced with bonded windshields and rear windows using polyurethane sealants, globally. Therefore, the increasing demand from automotive and other applications is expected to drive the polyurethane sealants segment.

The adhesives & sealants market in the Asia Pacific region is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

The adhesives & sealants market in the Asia Pacific region is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, due to the rising demand for adhesives & sealants from emerging economies, such as India, China, South Korea, Vietnam, Taiwan, and Singapore. China is the leading the market for adhesives & sealants in the Asia Pacific region. Continuous growth in infrastructure development and increase in production of automobiles are driving the adhesives & sealants market.

Henkel (Germany), Sika (Switzerland), Arkema (France), H.B. Fuller (US), Huntsman (US), 3M (US), and Illinois Tool Works (ITW) (US) are some of the key players operating in the adhesives & sealants market.

          Coleman Hawkins by Dan Morgenstern      Cache   Translate Page      


© -Steven Cerra, copyright protected; all rights reserved.



“Coleman Hawkins was a legend in his own time: revered by younger musicians, who were amazed and delighted at his ability to remain receptive to their discoveries; loved by his contemporaries, who were equally astonished by his capacity for constant self-renewal. He was one of those who wrote the book of jazz.


The art of Coleman Hawkins transcends the boundaries of style and time. Fortunately, it is well documented. The great sound and mind that is one of the landmarks of jazz lives on, as in these grooves, awaiting your command to issue forth once more.


Even among the chosen few of jazz, Coleman Hawkins stands out. Hear him well.”
- Dan Morgenstern

It takes a special observer to identify what was special about tenor saxophone legend Coleman Hawkins, because the legendary aspects of Hawkins’ career often overshadowed the actual aspects of the style that made him so distinctive and the contributions as a bandleader that did so much to help other Jazz musicians.



So what we wind up with is largely adoration and hagiography instead of critical insight and discerning explanation.

Enter Dan Morgenstern, a long-time observer and astute commentator on Jazz and its makers.


Dan is also one of the few Jazz critics who could write about the not-so-great closing years of the great man’s career with a gentleness and compassion that is a reflection of his love for Coleman.


Morgenstern, winner of an almost embarrassing number of Grammy Awards for his liner notes, did justice to the great saxophonist in 1973 and won yet another Grammy when he wrote these notes for the album The Hawk Flies [Riverside RLP-233, Original Jazz Classic CD OJC-027].


“Even among the chosen few, the extraordinary men and women who make up the peerage of jazz, Coleman Hawkins stands out.


To begin, there is his sound, a thing of beauty in and of itself. Hawkins filled the horn brimful with his great breath. Sound was his palette, and his brush was the instrument that, for jazz purposes, he invented—the tenor saxophone.


In this post-Coltrane age, the tenor sax is so prominent a feature of the landscape that it's hard to imagine it wasn't always there. Lester Young once said, accurately, "I think Coleman Hawkins was the President first, right?," here meaning "president" in the sense of founding father. Which wasn't the sense in which Billie Holiday had laid "Pres" on Lester—at a point in time when the president of the United States was a great man, Number One in all the land.


Tenor time in jazz begins in 1924, when Coleman Hawkins joined  Fletcher Henderson's band. In a decade there, he first mastered, then established the instrument. While trumpet still was king, it was due to Hawk that tenor became president. Thus jazz became a republic in the Swing Era. King Louis was peerless by definition, but his powerful message unlocked the magic in other noble souls. If we hear young Coleman Hawkins both before and after Armstrong joined Henderson, the point is clearly made.


The saxophone family of instruments had been invented by Adolphe Sax to mirror the range and variety of the strings; he wanted his instruments to sing, to have the warmth of wood and the power of brass, and thus created a hybrid of wind mouthpiece and brass body, unlocked by a new system of keys. He did this in the 1840s, but with the exception of Bizet, Debussy, and later Ravel, no major "serious" composer knew what to do with the new arsenal of sound. Until it was discovered and mastered by jazzmen in the early 1920s, the saxophone remained a brass band and vaudeville instrument — a novelty.


Coleman Hawkins's first instruments in St. Joseph, Missouri, were piano and cello. (Of all the saxophones, the tenor most resembles the cello in range and color.) As a boy, he heard and saw The Six Brown Brothers in vaudeville. They used the whole range of saxes, from sopranino to contrabass, and with all their clowning really knew how to play. Young Coleman began to explore the saxophone.


Exactly when this occurred is not entirely clear. Hawkins, like so many other performers, prevaricated about his age. It was widely accepted that he was born on November 21, 1904; a date he unsuccessfully tried to adjust to 1907. Still, underneath incessant joking and good-natured teasing about age with his friends (Ben Webster: "I was in knee pants when my mother first took me to hear you." Hawkins: "That wasn't me; that was my father. I wasn't born then!") there ran a current of doubt, and when Charles Graham, doing biographical research, obtained a copy of Hawkins's birth certificate, it read 1901!


By the time the Father of Tenor Saxophone left for Europe in March 1934, he had already created the two prototypical tenor styles in jazz: the fast, driving, explosive riff style and the slow, flowing, rhapsodic ballad form. He made the mold, he was the model: already, Ben Webster, Herschel Evans, Chu Berry, Budd Johnson, and many more had sprung, fully armed, from his high forehead.
To Europe, where the greatness of jazz had been felt mainly through records, Hawkins brought it in the flesh. Sidney Bechet had spent time there back in the twenties, and Louis Armstrong himself had flashed like a comet through England, Scandinavia, the Low Countries, France, Italy, and Switzerland earlier in the thirties. But Hawk came and remained; the first fixed star of magnitude.


When His Erstwhile Henderson colleague, Benny Carter, that master of the alto sax, clarinet, trumpet, and arranger's pen, crossed the Atlantic a bit later and also decided to stay, the two often hooked up. Together and individually they put their stamp on European jazz for decades.


The process was reciprocal. Hawkins's love for certain of the better things in life — good food, good drink, good clothes, pretty women, fast cars — was apparent before he left his homeland, but Europe sharpened and deepened his tastes. His sense of his own dignity and worth also expanded the warmth of European appreciation and adoration. From here on in Hawk was a cosmopolitan.


Meanwhile, there were not just contenders to his crown back home, but a whole new tenor style, introduced by Lester Young. Only a few of Hawk's great European recordings had made their way into the hands of American musicians during his absence. The climate seemed right for battle and the tenor brigade was ready for Bean (as musicians then called him, "bean" being a synonym for head, i.e., brainpower) when he came home in late July of 1939, just before the outbreak of World War II. Chu Berry, Ben Webster, Don Byas, and Lester himself were gathered to greet Hawk at a Harlem after-hours spot called Puss Johnson's (there were many such music spots; the reputation of Minton's is all out of proportion). The master arrived without horn (but with a striking lady), listened, and refused to be drawn into battle. A few days later he returned with horn and reestablished his sovereignty.


Hawk's victory became official with the release, late in 1939, of the biggest record of his career: "Body and Soul." Consisting of just two choruses—framed by a brief piano introduction and short tenor cadenza—it stands as one of the most perfectly balanced jazz records ever made. After more than three decades it remains a model of flawlessly constructed and superbly executed jazz improvisation, and is still the test piece for aspiring tenorists.


Although young tenor men in increasing numbers were taken with Lester's cooler sound and unorthodox phrasing, the Hawkins approach remained firmly entrenched (as the newfound popularity of Ben Webster with Duke Ellington and Don Byas with Count Basie proved in the early forties). There also arose a school of tenors equally influenced by both: Illinois Jacquet, Buddy Tate, Gene Ammons, and Dexter Gordon are examples.


Furthermore, that leader of the new style soon to be labeled bebop, Charlie Parker, symbolized the possibility of a Hawkins—Young fusion. Though fashionable jazz criticism has emphasized only Young's influence on Parker, there can be no doubt that Hawkins, especially in terms of harmony, approach to ballads, and use of double time, also profoundly touched Bird's conception.


The influence was a two-way street. Hawkins was the first established jazz figure of major stature to not only accept but embrace the new music, which he rightly saw as a logical development. Consider this: Hawk was the only name leader to hire Thelonious Monk, the strange piano player from Minton's house band, for a downtown gig (on 52nd Street) and to use him on a record date (the earliest music heard on this remarkable collection, and Monk's studio debut). And this: for a February 1944 date with a larger band, Hawkins hired Dizzy Gillespie, Max Roach, Leo Parker, and other young modernists to back him. And this: at the end of 1944, Hawk took to California a pioneer bop group that included Howard McGhee and Denzil Best. As early as 1947, Hawk used Miles Davis on a record date; a few years later he had him in his band. The 1947 date on this album clearly reflects Hawk’s commitment to the new sounds, and his ability to fit himself into it. (Note also the inclusion of a Monk tune, perfectly interpreted.)


Hawk didn't just adapt to bop; profoundly touched by Parker, he entered a whole new phase of musical development at an age when most players have settled permanently within a given framework.


The new Hawk was most clearly visible in the blues. Prior to the mid forties, Hawkins rarely played blues, and never with much of what we now call "funk." But Bird brought a new blue stream into jazz, and Hawk was nourished by it (hear him here on "Sih-sah" and "Juicy Fruit"). And Bird’s song in Hawk's ear didn't end with the blues. You can feel it throughout tin 1957 session, and in the magnificent "Ruby, My Dear" which stems from a Monk — Hawkins reunion album that co-starred John Coltrane. (The rest of that date, by the way, can be heard on Monk/Trane.)


For many years they had affectionately called him "The Old Man." But he still looked, felt, and played young and it was the Old Man's pride that he could keep up. No resting on laurels for him; virtually everything new was a challenge. But for a while, when Lester's way of playing tenor dominated the scene, and bop had little time to look back, Hawkins fell somewhat out of favor. When producer Orrin Keepnews gave him carte blanche to pick his own men for the 1957 date reintroduced herewith, the result was the first loose, modern jazz date for Hawk in some time. It compares most interestingly with the session of ten years before, and not only for the work of Hawk himself and repeaters J. J. Johnson and Hank Jones. (It is also interesting that Hawk did not choose a bop rhythm section for himself.)

Throughout the fifties, with Norman Granz's Jazz at the Philharmonic and also on his own, he frequently teamed with old friend Roy Eldridge, ten years younger but a fraternal spirit. From 1957 on, the Metropole in New York's Times Square area became their home base. Most jazz writers except visitors from Europe) shunned the place, but musicians did drop in to hear Roy and Hawk: among them, Miles Davis, Sonny Rollins, and John Coltrane.


At the soulful establishment across the street, The Copper Rail, the players and their friends congregated to eat and drink. Even when they were three-deep at the bar, you could hear Hawk's laughter, or his voice emphasizing a point, from anywhere in the house. Though he was not a large man, his voice had a presence remarkably similar to his saxophone sound. Hawk was strong in those days. The new tenor voices, significantly that of Sonny Rollins, seemed closer in conception and sound to him than to Lester, and his star was once again in ascendance. He and Roy made periodic tours abroad. Recordings were again fairly frequent. His personal life was happy. His health seemed robust.


"You have to eat when you drink," he used to say, and he was still following his own rule. A girl I knew thought nothing of cooking him eight eggs for breakfast, and he could go to work on a Chinese dinner for two or a double order of spareribs in the wee hours of the morning with the gusto of a hungry lumberjack. In the course of a working day, he'd consume a quantity of Scotch even Eddie Condon would have deemed respectable, but he could also leave the booze alone when it got to him. When Lester Young died in 1959, not quite fifty, the Old Man told me how he used to try to make Pres eat when they were traveling together for Jazz at the Philharmonic. "When I got something for myself, I'd get for him, too. But I'd always find most of it left under his bus or plane seat when we got off."


Hawk liked Lester very much, but the only tenor player I ever heard him call "genius" was Chu Berry. Other musicians he bestowed this title on were Louis, Bird, Art Tatum, Dizzy Gillespie, and Monk—the latter a personal favorite.


At home, Hawk rarely listened to jazz. His sizable collection was dominated by complete opera sets (Verdi, Wagner, and Puccini) and also included a lot of Brahms and Debussy. Bach and Beethoven were there as well, and some moderns, but Hawk liked music with a big sound and romantic sweep best of all. With his luxurious hi-fi setup, he could fill his comfortable Central Park West apartment with sound, and the commanding view of the park went well with the music. Sometimes he'd play the piano, which he did surprisingly well—always music of his own.


In the final years, which his friends would rather forget but can't, Tommy Flanagan would sometimes drop by and make Hawk play the piano and try to copy down some of the tunes. Hawk was always a gifted composer — even with Henderson — but never had the patience to write the stuff down. By then, the expensive hi-fi equipment had fallen into disuse, the blinds were often drawn to shut out the view, and the sound most frequently heard was that of the TV — on around the clock to keep the insomniac company. As often as not, there'd be food defrosting in the kitchen—chicken, chops, ribs, or steak—but "by the time it's ready for me to fix," he once told me, "I've lost my appetite from this whiskey." He knew exactly what he was doing to himself, but some demon had hold of him.


It had nothing to do with the socio-psychological cliches of art and race so often applied to "explain" jazz artists, but it did have much to do with the fact that he was living alone now, and that his aloneness was of his own making. His last great love gone because in his jealousy he could not accept that a woman could love a man much older than herself, he now chose to accelerate the aging process he had previously hated and successfully fought off. He let his grizzled beard and hair flow freely, and let his once immaculately fitting suits hang from his shrunken frame.


Only work could shake him out of his depression, but now it seldom came. He'd never been one for managers and agents; if people wanted his services, they could call him. But only a few employers — mainly the loyal Norman Granz, sometimes George Wein, a club owner here or there —  would still come through. My friends and I got him some gigs. It was a vicious circle: because he didn't work much, he was rusty when he did play (he had always disdained practicing, and lifelong habits don't change), and because he was rusty (and shaky), he wasn't asked back. Even quite near the end, a few nights of work, leading to resumed eating, could straighten him out, and he'd find his form. But there was no steady work to make him stay on course.


Perhaps it would have been too late; he hated doctors and hospitals and refused all suggestions of medical attention. And since his voice, incongruously, remained as strong as ever and his ego just as fierce, it was difficult to counteract him. He welcomed company but never invited anyone. His daughters would come by to visit and straighten up the house when they were in town. Frequent visitors included Monk and the Baroness Nica de Konigswarter, but the closest people near the end were Barry Harris and drummer Eddie Locke.


Monk was at Hawk's bedside when it had finally become necessary to take him to a hospital. Monk even made the Old Man laugh — but it was for the last time.
Coleman Hawkins was a legend in his own time: revered by younger musicians, who were amazed and delighted at his ability to remain receptive to their discoveries; loved by his contemporaries, who were equally astonished by his capacity for constant self-renewal. He was one of those who wrote the book of jazz.


The art of Coleman Hawkins transcends the boundaries of style and time. Fortunately, it is well documented. The great sound and mind that is one of the landmarks of jazz lives on, as in these grooves, awaiting your command to issue forth once more.


Even among the chosen few of jazz, Coleman Hawkins stands out. Hear him well.”

England and Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford made it two goals in two consecutive games, providing England's winner against Switzerland. As Marcus Rashford keeps scoring for England, the FC crew discuss whether he should leave Man United in search of minutes in a central position. England goalkeeper Jack Butland pledged to keep playing the ball out from the back despite some hairy moments during his side's 1-0 friendly win over Switzerland in Leicester. Butland, who was deputising for usual No. 1 Jordan Pickford, was culpable for two errors that almost proved costly early in the first half at the King Power Stadium. The Stoke goalkeeper nearly swept the ball into his own net as he tried to pick out a teammate stationed close to the byline on the England left and then played...
