          'We're doing this in order to prevent World War III': I read Bob Woodward's explosive new Trump book cover-to-cover, and there's one big takeaway      Cache   Translate Page      

Donald Trump

  • Journalist Bob Woodward's explosive new book about President Donald Trump and his administration, "Fear: Trump in the White House," highlights one overriding theme in the president's worldview.
  • The most important thing is the bottom line.
  • The book portrays top military, foreign policy, and national security advisers fighting him on that point.

President Donald Trump's foreign policy is driven by one thing: the bottom line.

It's a different approach than perhaps any other in the nation's history — one that fits a president who made his experience in the business world. It runs counter to the advice of his top military and national security advisers, who time and time again try to make the case to him that the existing world order is worth paying for to "prevent World War III," as Defense Secretary James Mattis pointedly told him.

Amid all the eye-popping details from journalist Bob Woodward's explosive new book about President Donald Trump and his administration, "Fear: Trump in the White House," this theme stands out.

No argument from career officials — like Mattis, former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, former national security adviser H.R. McMaster, former National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn, and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Joseph Dunford — seems to convince Trump that the system is worth upholding and footing much of the bill for.

"I'm tired of hearing that we have to do this or that to protect our homeland or to ensure our national security," Trump said during a discussion on what the game-plan moving forward on Afghanistan, according to the book.

Repeatedly, he denigrated the advice of those advisers because, as Trump said, they had no business experience and had no concept of money:

  • "These military guys, they don't get business," Trump said. "They know how to be soldiers and they know how to fight. They don't understand how much it's costing."
  • "All they want to do is protect everybody — that we pay for," he said of his group of military, foreign policy, and national security advisers.
  • Pointing to McMaster, who Woodward reported was never able to mesh well with the president, Trump said he didn't know how the Iraqi government "managed to fool McMaster, but he's not a businessman."
  • Trump said American military generals "don't understand the cost/benefit analysis."

Whether on the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, the post-World War II European alliance headed up by the US, US defense commitments in South Korea, or the ongoing war in Afghanistan, Trump insisted that money alone should be the main driver of any policy outlook.

NATO? The countries must pay their fair share. Afghanistan? "I'm not making a deal on anything until we get minerals," Trump said. South Korea? Renegotiate a trade deal immediately, or remove all US soldiers from the peninsula.

This is especially obvious in debates over existing US trade deals, which nearly all of his advisers try to convince him are actually good for the country.

"We're upside down" on trade deals, Trump said. "We're underwater on every one of these."

U.S. Defense Secretary James Mattis gestures during a press briefing at the Pentagon in Washington, U.S., May 19, 2017.He insisted the other nations were "making money" off the US.

"Just look at all this stuff up there," Trump said, pointing at some graphics. "We're paying for it all."

Cohn at multiple junctures tried to explain the deals were good for the economy and allowed US consumers to buy high-quality goods. One example he gave was TVs from South Korea, which US consumers could buy for a much lower cost than a TV manufactured in the US. Those lower costs allowed consumers to spend more money on other American products.

"I don't want to hear that," Trump said, according to the book. "It's all bulls---."

'We're doing this in order to prevent World War III'

In a heated debate over South Korea, during which advisers were seeking to convince him to stay in the KORUS trade agreements, maintain troop levels, and keep the THAAD missile defense system in place, Cohn asked the president what he would "need in the region to sleep well at night?"

"I wouldn't need a f---ing thing," the president said. "And I'd sleep like a baby."

Sometimes, the advisers lost their cool. Tillerson, who Woodward seconded earlier reporting as calling Trump a "f---ing moron," was a prime example. After one meeting, Woodward wrote that Tillerson "could not abide Trump's attack on the generals" and that he was "speaking as if the US military was a mercenary for hire."

"If a country wouldn't pay us to be there, then we didn't want to be there," Woodward wrote of Tillerson's assessment of Trump's foreign policy views. "As if there were no American interests in forging and keeping a peaceful world order, as if the American organizing principle was money."

Soon, one of the most tense meetings between Trump and these advisers took place. Trump revisited his distaste for keeping troops on the Korean Peninsula. But this time, he began asking why the US protected other countries, such as Taiwan.

"We're doing this in order to prevent World War III," Mattis replied. Woodward wrote that the response was "breathtaking" for those in the room, calling it "a challenge to the president, suggesting he was risking nuclear war."

"But we're losing so much money in trade with South Korea, China and others," Trump responded. "I'd rather be spending money on our own country."

NOW WATCH: Medical breakthroughs we will see in the next 50 years


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I got no pig in this fight, either way.

It just occurs to one that @NachoPR’s list actually, in some respects, holds immigrants to a higher standard than homegrown citizens.
e.g. I’m pretty sure that natural born citizens of your country (or mine, definitely mine!) won’t lose their passports for not being productive members of society (otherwise several members of my family are in BIG trouble).

How do we feel about that?
There are certainly valid cases to be made either way.
Again, I’m not backing either side, I just think it’s an interesting question.

ps It’s also fascinating to consider that, in Taiwan, there are definitely situations where foreigners have much less leeway on skirting the law than locals, for your consideration

          Hsinchu Resistance Stretching Taster Fri 9/14 19.30-20.30      Cache   Translate Page      

@chuen wrote:


Hello everybody!【——中文在下面——】

Welcome to another Resistance Stretching taster class!

【Resistance Stretching】
Resistance Stretching is an exercise technique that makes use of opposing forces to stretch body parts with a slowly moving motion. It changes fascia tissues and re-trains movement patterns improving strength and flexibility in an effective and efficient way. The exercises are assigned a Traditional Chinese Medicine meridian and can be used to diagnose the tightness in each meridian as well as stimulate energy flow in them.
Physical pain due to limited flexibility can be safely removed and psychological and emotional scars can be treated in a sustainable way.
Resistance Stretching can benefit everybody, regardless of how flexible they are or whether they exercise regularly. Main benefits include natural joint and posture alignment, strengthening of core muscles, loosening of tight body parts, strengthening of weak muscles groups, promotion of metabolism, energising the body and mind, improved bowel movements, better sleep quality, etc.

Please join us in introductory class to experience the effect Resistance Stretching can have on tight fascia tissues and start a new habit for your well-being!

  2. Not all patents are created equal. I’ve read somewhere that Korea’s patents are cited and used more than Taiwan’s (although Taiwan has produced some impressive ones, like OLED screens).

          第一手測試!Canon EOS R 與 RF 鏡頭、轉接環總整理/動手玩      Cache   Translate Page      
相機第一大廠 Canon 首台全幅無反 EOS R 在不久前問世,正式打響全幅無反戰局。而令人十分好奇的是,RF 鏡頭特色是什麼?塊頭大不大?好不好拿?對焦快不快?轉接環好用嗎?可以轉接什麼鏡頭?種種問題,透過本次筆者前進 Canon 日本總部帶來的動手玩來為大家一一解答。

隨著 Canon 劃時代的全片幅無反相機 EOS R 的發表,與之搭配的 RF 鏡頭接環系統也一併公佈,而據我們所知,「RF-Mount」首波推出的鏡頭一共有四顆,分別是兩顆變焦鏡 RF 24-105mm F4 L IS USM、RF 28-70mm F2.0 L USM,以及兩顆定焦鏡 RF 50mm F1.2 L USM、RF 35mm Macro F1.8 IS STM。

RF 鏡頭的共通特性

值得注意的是,除了前綴的 RF 系列型號之外,其他的鏡頭代號只要是熟悉 Canon 的玩家應該都可以略知一二,例如「L」代表紅圈圈高階鏡頭、「IS」代表內建光學防震結構、USM 與 STM 則代表對焦馬達,因此相信 C 家玩家應該可以迅速透過型號來了解這些鏡頭的屬性。另外,目前所有的 RF 鏡頭都在最前端有著「控制環」(Control Ring)的設計,可讓使用者透過機身設定來指定控制環的功能(例如控制光圈,就等於額外多了一個光圈環),並且這條控制環是有段式的設計(轉動時有段落感)。

除此之外,我們也發現一些共通的特點,例如全系列的 RF 鏡頭都是電子式對焦環、沒有對焦尺(窗)的設計,在一開始 Sony 推出全片幅 E 鏡頭(FE)時,曾有使用者抱怨沒有對焦尺的問題,不過從 Nikon Z 與 Canon RF 所推出的鏡頭看來,這類簡潔設計應該是無反相機的必然趨勢了。

此外,由於本次動手玩原廠並沒有提供其他的拍攝情境,僅有提供機身與鏡頭給各國媒體試玩(Touch & Try),因此本篇介紹仍以圖文解說、動手玩為主,詳細的實拍照我們會在之後的篇幅提到。

那麼,以下我們就透過多張現場實拍照來看看這四顆 RF 鏡頭,並介紹它們的設計與概念吧。

RF 24–105mm F4 L IS USM

第一手測試!Canon EOS R 與 RF 鏡頭、轉接環總整理/動手玩

規格:

  • 鏡片組成:18 elements in 14 groups
  • 視角:84°00’ - 23°20’
  • 對焦馬達:NANO USM
  • 最近對焦距離:1.48 ft. / 0.45m
  • 影像防震:搭載光學防震,搭配 EOS R 可實現最高 5 級防震
  • 光圈葉片:9 blades
  • 濾鏡口徑:77mm
  • 尺寸:3.29 x 4.22 in. / 83.5 x 107.3mm
  • 重量:Approx. 24.7 oz. / 700g

24-105mm F4 是目前 EOS R 系統中的「Kit 鏡」,不過這並非意味著它是一顆廉價的鏡頭,相反的,它是 EOS R 系統中一機一鏡最具代表性的鏡頭組合,它的地位就如同於 EF 接環的 EF 24-105mm L IS USM(1、2 代),同時它也是現有 RF 鏡頭群中,唯二具備光學防震(IS)的鏡頭(另一顆是 RF 35mm F1.8 Macro IS STM)。

從規格看起來,RF 接環的 24-105mm F4 L USM 似乎沒有小於 EF 接環的 24-105mm F4 L 太多,但實際上它在尺寸上給人的感受比較接近於 EF 24-70mm F4 這類鏡頭,當 EOS R 裝上這顆鏡頭時重心並不會太過靠前,其一是因為 EOS R 良好的握感,其二則是因為新 RF 鏡頭較靠近機身。

在鏡頭設計上,它採用霧面外觀、橡膠變焦環、橡膠對焦環、菱格硬塑膠控制環(Control Ring),同時具備 AM/MF 切換開關、光學防手震開關,以及 Lock 鎖焦鈕(可將鏡頭固定在 24mm 端)。

第一手測試!Canon EOS R 與 RF 鏡頭、轉接環總整理/動手玩

規格:

  • 鏡片組成:19 elements in 13 groups
  • 視角:75°00’ - 34°00’
  • 對焦馬達:Ring USM
  • 最近對焦距離:1.28 ft. / 0.39m
  • 光圈葉片:9 blades
  • 濾鏡口徑:95mm
  • 尺寸:4.09 x 5.50 in. / 103.8 x 139.8mm
  • 重量:Approx. 50.4 oz. / 1430g

本次公布的 RF 鏡頭中,最變態的就是這顆 28-70mm F2.0 L USM 了,它可說是寫下了標準變焦鏡頭的歷史新頁,過往完全沒有任何一顆標準焦段的全片幅鏡頭具備 F2.0 恆定光圈的設計(Sigma 曾推出 18-35mm F1.8,但它是 APS-C 鏡頭)。而 Canon 推出這顆鏡頭的企圖也十分明顯,其一是挑戰 EOS R 系統的光學極限,其二是在無反相機系統中樹立難以超越的規格。

當然我們可以想像的是,這樣的規格勢必會帶來極其巨大的體積,實際上也的確如此,它的鏡頭直徑大到很難用一手完整握持,濾鏡口徑亦高達 95mm,整顆鏡頭 1.4 公斤的重量約莫與 70-200mm F2.8 這類大三元鏡頭相仿。

不過,若說實際裝在 EOS R 身上的表現,倒是比想像中好上不少,EOS R 裝上 RF 28-70mm F2.0 L USM 之後固然會變得非常沈重,但整體重心仍不會偏移太多,在拍攝時若將重心全部放在左手,就可大幅減輕拍攝時的疲勞感。不過話說回來,Canon 為什麼不考慮在這顆鏡頭上加上腳架環的設計呢?

由於試玩時間有限,且展示間內並未有任何可供試拍的情境,因此目前尚無關於這顆鏡頭的實拍測試,不過若有機會的話,我們也會在之後的篇幅測試這顆鏡頭。

RF 50mm F1.2 L USM

第一手測試!Canon EOS R 與 RF 鏡頭、轉接環總整理/動手玩

規格:

  • 鏡片組成:15 elements in 9 groups
  • 視角:46°00’
  • 對焦馬達:Ring USM
  • 最近對焦距離:1.31 ft. / 0.4m
  • 光圈葉片:10 blades
  • 濾鏡口徑:77mm
  • 尺寸:3.54 x 4.25 in. / 89.8 x 108.0mm
  • 重量:Approx. 33.5 oz. / 950g

50mm F1.2 是目前我們看過無反系統中,自動對焦全片幅鏡頭中光圈最大者(Olympus 有推出光圈 F1.2 的 Pro 系列鏡頭,但它是 M4/3 系統;Nikon 則有預計發表 Noct 58mm F0.95 超大光圈鏡頭,不過這顆只能手動對焦;至於 Sony 則僅推出過最大光圈 F1.4 的 FE 鏡頭),因此在 50mm 焦段,這樣的規格仍可說是首創。

在外觀上,50mm F1.2 毫不令人意外的是它的大塊頭,但它裝在 EOS R 身上並沒有想像中那麼頭重腳輕,並且它還具備 77mm 的大口徑,然而令人意外的是,RF 50mm F1.2 L USM 是外對焦設計,對焦時可以看到前玉連同鏡組前後移動。

第一手測試!Canon EOS R 與 RF 鏡頭、轉接環總整理/動手玩

雖然是外對焦設計,但或許是受益於 EOS R 的系統設計,這顆鏡頭的對焦速度雖然不算特別快,但表現也不算太慢。另外也許是因為對焦行程較長、鏡片較重的緣故,它也在側面還設計了對焦距離選擇鈕。

RF 35mm F1.8 Macro IS STM

第一手測試!Canon EOS R 與 RF 鏡頭、轉接環總整理/動手玩

規格:

  • 鏡片組成:11 elements in 9 groups
  • 視角:63°00’
  • 對焦馬達:Gear-type STM
  • 最近對焦距離:0.56 ft. / 0.17m
  • 影像防震:搭載光學防震,搭配 EOS R 可實現最高 5 級防震
  • 光圈葉片:9 blades
  • 濾鏡口徑:52mm
  • 尺寸:Ø2.93 x 2.47 in. / Ø74.4 x 62.8mm
  • 重量:Approx. 0.68 lbs. / 305g

在首波四顆 RF 鏡頭中,RF 35mm F1.8 Macro IS STM 是唯一不具備紅圈的鏡頭,意即它並非是一顆 L 鏡,在價格上它也是最平實的一顆(美金售價換算約合台幣 2 萬元)。比較引人注目的是,它除了具備 F1.8 的大光圈之外,同時亦擁有 Macro 微距鏡功能。

在近拍方面,RF 35mm F1.8 Macro IS STM 最近拍攝距離是 17cm(從感光元件起算),並且放大倍率最高達到 0.5x,這樣的放大率雖不如現在微距鏡主流的 1.0x,但實際上在相機歷史上只要放大率達到 0.5x 就可稱之為微距鏡了。

第一手測試!Canon EOS R 與 RF 鏡頭、轉接環總整理/動手玩

不過令筆者意外的是,它並沒有具備微距鏡有的「對焦距離選擇鈕」,此外它與 RF 50mm F1.2 相同都是外對焦設計,不同的是 RF 35mm F1.8 Macro IS STM 對焦時鏡筒會明顯向前伸長,這點也讓它的對焦行程變得較長,不過在對焦速度的表現上仍比預期中快。

EF-EOS R 轉接環

除了 RF 原生鏡之外,最多玩家關心的想必就是「轉接」問題了,畢竟對大家來說,EOS R 仍是一個剛誕生、仍未正式上市的新系統,若要購足這些 RF 原生鏡頭,其花費並不一定是每個人都吃得消,並且許多 RF 鏡頭缺乏的焦段也必須透過轉接達成。

轉接環必須特別開一個標題來討論的原因是,這次 Canon 在轉接環上面可說祭出了不小的誠意,除了陽春的 EF-EOS R 轉接環之外,還有內建控制環(Control Ring)的轉接環,以及內建插刀式濾鏡(Drop-in Filter)的轉接環(這項設計常見在大砲鏡頭上)。其中後者還分別有 ND 減光鏡、CPL 偏光鏡的版本推出,等於讓使用 EF 鏡頭轉接的使用者因此省下不少的濾鏡花費。

EF Commander 18.09 Multilingual + Portable | 11.4/12.1 Mb
EF Commander is a complex and multi-featured file manager that a wide range of users, from beginners to professionals, will find easy to use. It is the result of many requests received by the author. The first version was written in 1994, under the OS/2 operating system using Presentation Manager, as a personal replacement for the old DOS program Norton Commander™. In 1996 it was ported to the 32-bit Microsoft Windows operating system.

Here are some key features of "EF Commander":

Easy to use
The modern interface helps you to have full control over your files and folders.

Tabbed interface
Define just the views you need in each pane for your folders and files.

Thumbnails
Quickly and easily get an overview your photos or other image collections.

32 bit multi-threading, parallel file operations
All long operations are run with multi-tasking. You can run any number of different operations at the same time, or several instances of the same operation - for example, you can have several "copy" commands going simultaneously.

Direct link to PDAs with Windows CE
EF Commander was the first file manager worldwide with this feature. Handle your data in the same way as on your desktop or laptop computer.

Internal packers for more than 20 archive formats
Use EF Commander to pack files or whole folders in any of the common archive formats. No external programs are required.
Supported formats: 7-Zip, ACE, ARC, ARJ, BZIP2, CAB, CPIO, GZIP, IMG, ISO (ISO9660), LHA, RAR, RPM, SFX, SQX, TAR, TBZ, TGZ,                                                                                                                                    ZIP, ZOO

Internal viewer for more than 30 file formats
View picture files and movies, and play MP3, Ogg/Vorbis, FLAC, WMA and WAV audio files, without having to use any other software.

Use XnView and IrfanView as add-ons
Enlarge the number of available formats to 400 or more. EF Commander runs quietly in the background, but remains fully available to you. Files can also be managed in the internal viewer, in the quick view mode, or as thumbnails.

Fast FTP-client
The built-in FTP client features resume download and FxP (server to server transfers).

Internal text and HEX editor
EF Commander has full text and hex editors for files that are limited only by your system resources.

Functions to split/join large files
Split large files into smaller parts, and recombine the parts.

Create/Verify checksums
Check the integrity of your data. EF Commandersupports the SFV, MD5 and SHA1 formats.

Synchronize function
Synchronize your notebook or your LAN with your work station.

Built-in media player
Play MP3, Ogg/Vorbis, FLAC, WMA and WAV.

External plug-in support for packers, viewers, file system and contents
Extend the functionality of EF Commander with external plugins. Supported formats include WLX, WCX, WFX and Winamp decode plugins.

The following languages are included in the package: English, German, Bulgarian, Catalan, Chinese, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, French, Galician, Hungarian, Italian, Korean, Latvian, Lithuanian, Macedonian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Slovak, Spanish, Swedish, Taiwan, Ukrainian.

          Meade 26mm SP Japan and Celestron Nexstar 25mm Plossl      Cache   Translate Page      
For Sale

So the first plossl is a Celestron Nexstar Plossl 25mm and comes with its original top cap; having come from a 2000 Nexstar 5. These are great performers with multicoated optics and pretty much an equal competitor to the Orion Sirius Plossl line, with the exception that there is no ghosting due to the advanced coatings.
Fit and finish is attractive.

Not a novelty inclusive eyepiece that you see with (for instance) some of the Meade DS-Series refractors of today. This is solid aluminum and brass and is heavy. It is a fantastic all-around low power eyepiece for both anything astronomy and definitely for daytime observing as well. Images in a good telescope will be sharp to the edge. Fov is 50-deg.

Cosmetics are excellent on the chrome, very excellent on the body, and excellent on the optics. No issues to report and definitely no cleaning needed that I can see. $20.00

The second plossl is a Meade 1.25-inch 26mm Super Plossl and comes with its original twist capsule. This is one of the last years of the second generation; Still Japanese-made, but a 4-element rather than a 5.
This eyepiece is a dead-on match to the Celestron Silvertop 26mm with the multicoatings. If you compare the two, many will share the same hues on the coatings.
Me, personally, I'm a pretty darn strict Japanese optics user on all accounts. I have quite a few Japanese refractors, and those use Japanese diagonals and eyepieces, and filters. There are good things that come from Taiwan and China, but as a whole, they cannot compare to the fit, finish, and routine quality control from Japan.
And so this eyepiece, which came as a stock duplicate to my Meade 102ED of the same year, has only given me faultless, crisp low power views of my favorite objects; M57, M31, M42, M13, M92, M35/NGC2158, and we can't forget M94, Jupiter, Saturn, and the Moon.
Lovely, sharp 52-degrees fov to be enjoyed by all ages as this is a VERY easy eyepiece to aim. If you have a 60mm to 80mm refractor that uses a .965" barrel, get a nice hybrid diagonal and put this eyepiece in there and wake up your refractors low power potential to please your eyes!

Cosmetics are very excellent and collectible throughout. No real markings to find and the gloss finish on the aluminum and brass is quite attractive (to me at least!). Optics are very excellent, possibly mint. No dust problems, swirls, coating peel, or fogging. The capsule is in excellent condition and holds firm. $40.00

Prices don't include shipping. Will ship to anyone on the planet.

          Orion 1995 1.25" Sirius Plossls w caps Taiwan      Cache   Translate Page      
For Sale

I have a lot of respect for this generation of Sirius Plossl from Orion as these are the Taiwan-made models and every darn bit an equal to the Celestron "Halloweens" of the same years. Like the Pro Optic and Celestron versions; all came from the same plant. All came with either a red or black upper body rubber o-ring that releases the top element assembly when the upper barrel is loosened.
And all were fully coated.

Fit and finish on these little guys are great and all will do wonderful work in just about any telescope that I can think of. Each will come with their original top and bottom caps and all have the "Taiwan" decal on the side of the body. This particular set is from the same year; 1995. All give 50-deg fov.

1) 25mm. Excellent condition all around on the cosmetics and hard to find them in conditions above this as beginners were the general 1st owners of them; though they perform well beyond a beginner's ocular! Glass is in great condition on the top element with a hairline in the coating and a few tiny pits. The rest of the elements are excellent and NO dust issues. You will NOT be disappointed with this on M42 later this year. $24.00

2) 17mm. Very excellent on the cosmetics and quite attractive for the collector. Optics are very excellent clean and this is a rare example to find in this condition. Perfect for M13, M92, M15, M57, M11, and M17. Will work with most eyeglass wearers. $30.00

3) 10mm. Very excellent on all the cosmetics and in collector's condition. If only we had the box (sign). Glass is in excellent condition on the top element and the others are very excellent. Again, no dust issues or other contaminants. I very much enjoy this plossl range with a 2x barlow (like the Ultima or Meade apo barlows!) when looking at Jupiter, Venus, Mars, and a lot of double stars. $29.00

Prices don't include shipping. Will ship to anyone anywhere. More photos if ya need 'em!

          Hilang Sebulan, Aktris Cantik Pemeran Film X-Men Ditahan Aparat China?      Cache   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Beijing - Media pemerintah China melaporkan pada pekan lalu bahwa salah satu aktris tersohor di Negeri Tirai Bambu, Fan Bingbing, sedang berada di bawah kendali otoritas setempat. Wanita kelahiran 16 September 1981 ini dikabarkan menghilang dari mata publik pada bulan Juli lalu, mengingat bahwa dia adalah tokoh masyarakat yang aktif di dunia maya dan nyata.

Fan, yang memerankan tokoh Blink dalam film "X-Men: Days of Future Past" belum pernah menunjukkan batang hidungnya di depan umum sejak 1 Juli. Sedangkan unggahan terakhir di media sosialnya tercatat pada 2 Juni 2018.

Banyak yang berspekulasi bahwa dia ditahan oleh pemerintah China atas tuduhan penggelapan pajak.

Berita tentang menghilangnya Fan Bingbing dari khalayak ramai dikabarkan pertama kali oleh Cui Yongyuan, mantan pembawa acara TV milik pemerintah Tiongkok, Central Television.

Dalam pemberitaannya, Cui menyampaikan bahwa Bingbing telah menandatangani kontrak rahasia dengan perusahaan hiburan di China agar terhindar dari pembayaran pajak. Kontrak ini kemudian disebut sebagai "Yin-Yang".

Pekan lalu, sebuah artikel yang dimuat di Securities Daily --media yang dikelola pemerintah-- menuliskan bahwa Bingbing sedang berada "di bawah kendali otoritas China" dan akan menerima keputusan hukum. Beberapa kantor berita, termasuk Taiwan News, juga melaporkan hal serupa.

Menurut Taiwan News, yang menambahkan berita di Securities Daily, menyebut bahwa aktris berambut panjang itu telah dipenjara. Demukian seperti dikutip dari Business Insider, Rabu (12/9/2018).

Namun artikel yang dipublikasikan di Daily Securities telah 'diturunkan' (take down) beberapa jam setelah diterbitkan, menurut Taiwan News.

Sementara itu, kantor berita lainnya berasumsi bahwa, desas-desus yang beredar mengklaim Fan Bingbing sudah menjadi tahanan rumah sejak bulan Juli. Demikian menurut The Epoch Times, sebuah surat kabar Amerika Serikat yang berfokus pada China.

Tunangan Bingbing yang juga merupakan aktor kawakan, Li Chen, juga tidak menunjukkan aktivitas apapun di sosial media sejak awal Juli.

Pemerintah Sensor Berita tentang Fan Bingbing?

Pada akhir Juli, surat kabar independen China, The Economic Observer, melaporkan bahwa polisi di provinsi Jiangsu sedang memeriksa kasus penyalahgunaan keuangan negara yang dilakukan oleh Fan Bingbing. Selain aktris cantik ini, polisi juga menyelidiki beberapa asisten Bingbing.

Koran tersebut juga mengabarkan, Bingbing dan dan saudara laki-lakinya dilarang meninggalkan China. Namun tak lama setelah dipublikasikan, berita itu diturunkan.

Pemberitaan tentang keberadaan Bingbing pada awal tahun ini juga dihapus dari media sosial, menurut Free Weibo, situs web yang melacak sensor media sosial di China.

Mengutip Free Weibo, BBC melaporkan pada Agustus bahwa komentar dari para penggemar Bingbing yang bernada keprihatinan, juga telah diturunkan.

Fan Bingbing adalah aktris dengan bayaran tertinggi di China sejak 2013, Forbes melaporkan tahun lalu. Dia mampu mengantongi puluhan juta dolar Amerika Serikat dalam sekali syuting.

Pada bulan Juni, pihak dari studio yang menyewa Bingbing membantah tuduhan bahwa Bingbing telah menandatangani beberapa kontrak untuk menghindari pajak.

"Studio dan Fan Bingbing akan bekerja sama sepenuhnya dengan otoritas terkait. Kami berharap hasil investigasi dapat segera dirilis untuk menjawab keraguan publik," demikian kata studio lewat pernyataan tertulisnya.

Laporan terbaru oleh para akademisi dari Beijing Normal University 'menganugerahkan' Bingbing sebagai aktris terburuk tahun ini di China. Para akademisi menempatkan Bingbing dalam peringkat terendah dari sisi "tanggung jawab sosial".

Laporan tersebut mengevaluasi selebriti lokal pada tiga kriteria, yakni profesionalisme, banyaknya kegiatan amal yang dilakukan dan integritas. Seluruhnya berdasarkan pada laporan media selama setahun terakhir.

          Pakai Lumba-Lumba untuk Percobaan Olimpiade 2020, Jepang Minta Maaf      Cache   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Tokyo - Japan Sailing Federation atau Federasi Pelayaran Jepang melayangkan permintaan maaf setelah menggelar pertunjukan lumba-lumba untuk para pelaut yang berlaga di World Cup Series. Acara ini juga merupakan salah satu rangkaian uji coba untuk Olimpiade 2020 di Tokyo.

Kompetisi, yang diselenggarakan oleh panitia setempat di Enoshima, dimaksudkan agar penyelenggara Olimpiade bisa mengukur tingkat kesiapan mereka dan memungkinkan para peserta untuk beradaptasi dengan medan sekitar.

Namun upacara pembukaan tersebut berakhir dengan sorak sorai yang mengejek usai panitia menampilkan atraksi beberapa ekor lumba-lumba. Kejadian ini memicu kecaman dari sebagian besar pelaut, salah satunya atlet asal Inggris, Luke Patience.

"Apa yang saya saksikan adalah sesuatu yang sangat memalukan. Kami adalah pelaut dan olahraga kami adalah bagian dari 'penghijauan' @worldsailing," tulis Luke dalam akun Twitter pribadinya @patience_luke diiringi dengan hashtag #sorrynature.

Dalam postingan selanjutnya, ia menambahkan, "Saya minta maaf atas perkataan saya, dan setiap pelanggaran yang saya buat tadi malam. Saya terkejut ketika world sailing membawa kami ke akuarium yang berisi lumba-lumba untuk melihat upacara pembukaan. Sebagai bagian dari olahraga, saya harap kita bisa menunjukkan lebih banyak moralitas kepada alam."

World Sailing mengatakan, upacara pembukaan itu "mengecewakan" karena menyertakan lumba-lumba hidup. Organisasi ini menambahkan bahwa panitia penyelenggara tidak meminta izin terlebih dahulu untuk menggunakan mamalia tersebut.

Asosiasi olahraga pelayaran resmi tersebut, yang juga bertanggung jawab untuk melindungi kehidupan laut, mengatakan dalam sebuah pernyataan bahwa pihaknya tidak mentolerir pertunjukan seperti itu dan meminta maaf atas kesalahan yang dilakukan oleh panitia di Jepang.

"Sebagai bagian dari agenda terusan World Sailing 2030, ada target khusus yang harus dicapai terkait dengan kehidupan laut. Salah satunya adalah untuk mengurangi dampak negatif dari olahraga berlayar pada Olimpiade 2020 nanti. Kami akan memberikan pencerahan, bila diperlukan, yang ditujukan kepada mitra kami untuk memastikan hal ini tidak terjadi lagi."

Hirobumi Kawano, kepala Federasi Pelayaran Jepang, mengakui keputusannya untuk menyertakan lumba-lumba dalam upacara pembukaan tersebut. Ia mengaku kurang mempertimbangkan langkah tersebut sebelum sadar bahwa lumba-lumba adalah hewan laut yang dilindungi.

Akan tetapi, ia bersikeras bahwa sikap dan perlakuan terhadap lumba-lumba yang ditempatkan dalam penagkaran berbeda-beda di tiap negara.

"Namun kami tetap meminta maaf jika kami membuat orang-orang merasa tidak nyaman," ungkap Kawano, seperti dikutip dari The Guardian, Rabu (12/9/2018).

Jepang Beberapa Kali Dikritik

Sebelumnya, Jepang pernah dikecam oleh masyarakat internasional karena melakukan perburuan tahunan terhadap lumba-lumba di Taiji. Daerah ini dikenal sebagai tempat 'pembantaian' lumba-lumba untuk diambil dagingnya atau dijual ke akuarium dan taman laut.

Pada tahun 2015, Japan Association of Zoos and Aquariums setuju untuk berhenti membeli lumba-lumba dari Taiji setelah terancam diusir dari World Association of Zoos and Aquariums.

Akuarium di Enoshima adalah salah satu dari dua fasilitas hiburan publik yang diultimatum oleh asosiasi tersebut. Pihak akuarium di Enoshima mengklaim ingin melanjutkan keterlibatannya dalam program pemuliaan lumba-lumba di Taiji.

Selain itu, Jepang juga pernah dikritik pada bulan lalu setelah lumba-lumba, puluhan pinguin dan ratusan ikan ditelantarkan selama berbulan-bulan di sebuah akuarium tak berpenghuni.

Yes, the phrase above is in Penang Hokkien which means literally ta'mampu-duduk-takhta (singgasana) [couldn't sit or more correctly, couldn't ascend to the throne (of power, eg, as a PM)].

The 'throne' in this post has nothing to do with royal thrones but more with 'holding the top political power'.

It's a popular but sad phrase among Chinese who use it to describe people who were NOT DESTINED to become Emperor (in olden days) or PM in today's political world [or alternatively President in a presidential political system as in the USA, France, South Korea, Taiwan].



Another Chinese phrase would be 'Without the Mandate of Heaven'.



Hillary Rodham Clinton 

Recently, we witnessed a case of bay-chay-tian in the USA where Hillary Rodham Clinton was just not fated to become President of the USA, though she possessed(s) all the qualifications, experience, competency, pedigree and personality, and was expected to have won hands down against a political clown. Instead, the Americans voted in the dungu, wakakaka.



An Australia case would have been the sad failure of Kim Beazley (Labor), one of the most capable Labor minister, to become PM. He was DPM to Paul Keating but after Keating left the party to his stewardship, Labor lost out to the Coalition.



Kim Beazley 

A Rhodes scholar and an expert on American affairs, he was very likeable but never did become what he wanted to be, PM of Australia. Instead Labor jokers like Mark Latham including ultra-narcissist Kevin Rudd succeeded. Fate dealt a cruel joke on Australian politics in the same way as it did recently to the USA.



loose cannon Mark Latham 


ultra-narcissist Mandarin-speaking Kevin Rudd 

In Malaysia of course the most famous person suffering from the curse of bay-chay-tian would be Ku Li. I needn't go into his sad political life to inform you how he was played out left, right and centre. Others you could add to Ku Li's tragic category would be Musa Hitam and the late Tun Dr Ismail, probably the BEST PM we never had but who was called by his Maker too soon. Where they all failed, Abdullah Ahmad Badawi (AAB) succeeded, wakakaka.



Ku Li 


Musa Hitam 


late Tun Dr Ismail 

All the above brings us to Anwar Ibrahim, the man who missed out and missed out and missed out over the years since 1997.



His seeming impatience might have riled Mahathir-adorers and Azmin-worshippers, but how is he to be PM in two years time, as mandated by Pakatan, if he doesn't warm up a bit on power politics (having been out of touch for 21 years including 11 years of imprisonment), and probably replace his incompetent wife as DPM and then be prepared to take over from Mahathir who is fast changing his promise to leave in two years time as he has just changed his promise to dissolve the CEP in 100 days.



Mahathir is a man you cannot trust. He is extremely slithery with his words and a master Machiavellian. To top all these sinister doubts about the Old Man, it's known and proven he hates, abhors and detests Anwar with a vengeance.





Then, in the shadowy wing, Azmin Ali waits patiently like a reticulated python, all coiled up and ready to strike an swallow up the Anwar legacy. His loyalist Zuraida Kamaruddin has even brazenly demanded that Anwar states his stand regarding the way in which the Port Dickson (PD) parliamentary seat was vacated for him, while another of Azmin's dwarfs Tian Chua has expressed his anger at Rafizi very-hush-hush move to enthrone Anwar next to the PM's position.



hmmm, now who shall I fCk up next?

It's all very oppressing, intimidating and forbidding for Anwar whose situational awareness tells him that now must be the time to move.

But Anwar will find his once-popularity with especially the youth is no more - those youths have grown up and a new generation of voters are now in place and who (not realising who Mahathir had been in his 4th Reich) adulate Mahathir and even believe Anwar to be a stumbling block to the Old Man's continuing tenure as PM, preferably (in their moronic minds) for the next 1,000 years. They now are unlikely to support or even vote for Anwar.

National Patriots Association, the military veteran group, has warned Anwar against causing a by-election in PD as they favour the continuation of former-Admiral Danyal Balagopal Abdullah as the local MP, but the bloke himself has insisted on resigning and willingly giving up his PD seat for Anwar to contest.



Danyal Balagopal Abdullah

Nonetheless, it's not nice for Anwar to hear retired Brig-Gen Raja Arshad warning him of a military 'backlash' in PD if he were to stand there in a by-election.



Brig-Jen (rtd) Raja Arshad 

Even Siti Kasim, renowned activist has urged PD voters to vote against Anwar, saying:

PKR dan keluarga Anwar mesti diberi pengajaran kerana ini kali ketiga mereka mengadakan pilihan raya untuk memberi laluan kepada pemimpin utama PKR itu.

Mereka fikir mereka boleh melakukan apa sahaja yang mereka suka sehingga menjejaskan kami? Tidak!




Siti Kasim 

Siti is pissed off that just for the sake of bringing in cultist personality like Anwar, by-elections after by-elections have been unnecessarily happening.

Thus, with several supposedly friendly forces (including Azmin's 
Dökkálfar Dwarfs) now being extremely unfriendly to him, Anwar MUST win this time or he'll be another bay-chay-tian.

I am not politically clued on PD but I am sure the Rafizi's Pandan Cats would have done their mathematics to confidently stand Anwar there.

Ironically, PD has been the location that Anwar had once threatened to reveal happenings of sordid tales about an allegedly amorous (then-DPM) Najib.

That's when I first came to hear of his manmanlai teasing to tell all about Najib's alleged amorous activities during an Ijok by-election campaign. Since then, I have named Anwar as Mr Manmanlai, wakakaka. But I hope PD won't be Najib's last laugh at Anwar.

(below) Pandan Cats

Demographics tell us that PD voters comprise 43% Malays, 33% Chinese and 22% Indian. It's the sort of ethnic mix that Mahathir once liked (during his 4th Reich).

When he was PM during the period 1981 to 2003, Mahathir didn't trust the Malays to take him and his party across the finishing line but depended on the nons to do so out of fear of Islamic PAS, thus he liked 'mixed constituencies' along the ratio of 60 to 65% Malays to 35 to 40% nons. Indeed it was Mahathir himself who made the Chinese and Indians into 'King-makers' - he should stop blaming the Chinese for what he did in his personal political interests.



when he boasted of that in 1969, it cost him a seat in parliament and 5 years out in the cold - since then he was more circumspect though deep in his heart he still detests the nons

In GE14, Danyal garnered 36,225 votes to defeat V Mogan of BN-MIC (18,515 votes) and PAS' Mahfuz Roslan (6,594 votes). Thus there is a pro-PH base of around 59%. But this will be a by-election and things may work out differently. If the pro-PH Chinese and Indians don't play Anwar out he will be in parliament soon. Thus PKR and the DAP must work harder for Anwar (unless they don't want to).

Or, will he enter Malaysian history alongside Ku Li, Musa Hitam and Tun Dr Ismail as footnotes?

          China's 'Digital' Totalitarian Experiment      Cache   Translate Page      

Authored by Gordon Chang via The Gatestone Institute,

  • China's "social credit" system, which will assign every person a constantly updated score based on observed behaviors, is designed to control conduct by giving the ruling Communist Party the ability to administer punishments and hand out rewards. The former deputy director of the State Council's development research center says the system should be administered so that "discredited people become bankrupt".

  • Officials prevented Liu Hu, a journalist, from taking a flight because he had a low score. According to the Communist Party-controlled Global Times, as of the end of April 2018, authorities had blocked individuals from taking 11.14 million flights and 4.25 million high-speed rail trips.

  • Chinese officials are using the lists for determining more than just access to planes and trains. "I can't buy property. My child can't go to a private school," Liu said. "You feel you're being controlled by the list all the time."

  • Chinese leaders have long been obsessed with what Jiang Zemin in 1995 called "informatization, automation, and intelligentization," and they are only getting started Given the capabilities they are amassing, they could, the argument goes, make defiance virtually impossible. The question now is whether the increasingly defiant Chinese people will accept President Xi's all-encompassing vision.

By 2020, Chinese officials plan to have about 626 million surveillance cameras operating throughout the country. Those cameras will, among other things, feed information into a national "social credit system."

That system, when it is in place in perhaps two years, will assign to every person in China a constantly updated score based on observed behaviors. For example, an instance of jaywalking, caught by one of those cameras, will result in a reduction in score.

Although officials might hope to reduce jaywalking, they seem to have far more sinister ambitions, such as ensuring conformity to Communist Party political demands. In short, the government looks as if it is determined to create what the Economist called "the world's first digital totalitarian state."

China's President Xi Jinping is not merely an authoritarian leader. He evidently believes the Party must have absolute control over society and he must have absolute control over the Party. He is taking China back to totalitarianism as he seeks Mao-like control over all aspects of society. (Photo by Lintao Zhang/Getty Images)

That social credit system, once perfected, will surely be extended to foreign companies and individuals.

At present, there are more than a dozen national blacklists, and about three dozen various localities have been operating experimental social credit scoring systems. Some of those systems have failed miserably. Others, such as the one in Rongcheng in Shandong province, have been considered successful.

In the Rongcheng system, each resident starts with 1,000 points, and, based upon their changing score, are ranked from A+++ to D. The system has affected behavior: incredibly for China, drivers stop for pedestrians at crosswalks.

Drivers stop at crosswalks because residents in that city have, as Foreign Policyreported, "embraced" the social credit system. Some like the system so much that they have set up micro social credit systems in schools, hospitals, and neighborhoods. Social credit systems obviously answer a need for what people in other societies take for granted.

Yet, can what works on a city level be extended across China? As technology advances and data banks are added, the small experimental programs and the national lists will eventually be merged into one countrywide system. The government has already begun to roll out its "Integrated Joint Operations Platform," which aggregates data from various sources such as cameras, identification checks, and "wifi sniffers."

So, what will the end product look like? "It will not be a unified platform where one can type in his or her ID and get a single three-digit score that will decide their lives," Foreign Policy says.

Despite the magazine's assurances, this type of system is precisely what Chinese officials say they want. After all, they tell us the purpose of the initiative is to "allow the trustworthy to roam everywhere under heaven while making it hard for the discredited to take a single step."

That description is not an exaggeration. Officials prevented Liu Hu, a journalist, from taking a flight because he had a low score. The Global Times, a tabloid that belongs to the Communist Party-owned People's Dailyreported that, as of the end of April 2018, authorities had blocked individuals from taking 11.14 million flights and 4.25 million high-speed rail trips.

Chinese officials, however, are using the lists for determining more than just access to planes and trains. "I can't buy property. My child can't go to a private school," Liu said. "You feel you're being controlled by the list all the time."

The system is designed to control conduct by giving the ruling Communist Party the ability to administer punishments and hand out rewards. And the system could end up being unforgiving. Hou Yunchun, a former deputy director of the State Council's development research center, said at a forum in Beijing in May that the social credit system should be administered so that "discredited people become bankrupt".

"If we don't increase the cost of being discredited, we are encouraging discredited people to keep at it," Hou said. "That destroys the whole standard."

Not every official has such a vindictive attitude, but it appears that all share the assumption, as the dovish Zhi Zhenfeng of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences said, that "discredited people deserve legal consequences."

President Xi Jinping, the final and perhaps only arbiter in China, has made it clear how he feels about the availability of second chances. "Once untrustworthy, always restricted," the Chinese ruler says.

What happens, then, to a country where only the compliant are allowed to board a plane or be rewarded with discounts for government services? No one quite knows because never before has a government had the ability to constantly assess everyone and then enforce its will. The People's Republic has been more meticulous in keeping files and ranking residents than previous Chinese governments, and computing power and artificial intelligence are now giving China's officials extraordinary capabilities.

Beijing is almost certain to extend the social credit system, which has roots in attempts to control domestic enterprises, to foreign companies. Let us remember that Chinese leaders this year have taken on the world's travel industry by forcing hotel chains and airlines to show Taiwan as part of the People's Republic of China, so they have demonstrated determination to intimidate and punish. Once the social credit system is up and running, it would be a small step to include non-Chinese into that system, extending Xi's tech-fueled totalitarianism to the entire world.

The dominant narrative in the world's liberal democracies is that tech favors totalitarianism. It is certainly true that, unrestrained by privacy concerns, hardline regimes are better able to collect, analyze, and use data, which could provide a decisive edge in applying artificial intelligence A democratic government may be able to compile a no-fly list, but none could ever come close to implementing Xi Jinping's vision of a social credit system.

Chinese leaders have long been obsessed with what then-President Jiang Zemin in 1995 called "informatization, automation, and intelligentization," and they are only getting started. Given the capabilities they are amassing, they could, the argument goes, make defiance virtually impossible.

Technology might even make liberal democracy and free-markets "obsolete" writesYuval Noah Harari of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in the Atlantic. "The main handicap of authoritarian regimes in the 20th century — the desire to concentrate all information and power in one place — may become their decisive advantage in the 21st century," he writes.

There is no question that technology empowers China's one-party state to repress people effectively. Exhibit A for this proposition is, of course, the country's social credit system.

Yet China's communists will probably overreach. The country's experience so far with social credit systems suggests that officials are their own worst enemies. An early experiment to build such a system in Suining county in Jiangsu province was a failure:

"Both residents and state media blasted it for its seemingly unfair and arbitrary criteria, with one state-run newspaper comparing the system to the 'good citizen' certificates issued by Japan during its wartime occupation of China."

The Rongcheng system has been more successful because its scope has been relatively modest.

Xi Jinping will not be as restrained as Rongcheng's officials. He evidently believes the Party must have absolute control over society and he must have absolute control over the Party. It is simply inconceivable that he will not include in the national social credit system, when it is stitched together, political criteria. Already Chinese officials are trying to use artificial intelligence to predict anti-Party behavior.

Xi Jinping is not merely an authoritarian leader, as it is often said. He is taking China back to totalitarianism as he seeks Mao-like control over all aspects of society.

The question now is whether the increasingly defiant Chinese people will accept Xi's all-encompassing vision. In recent months, many have taken to the streets: truck drivers striking over costs and fees, army veterans marching for pensions, investors blocking government offices to get money back from fraudsters, Muslims surrounding mosques to stop demolition, and parents protesting the scourge of adulterated vaccines, among others. Chinese leaders obviously think their social credit system will stop these and other expressions of discontent.

Let us hope that China's people are not in fact discouraged. Given the breadth of the Communist Party's ambitions, everyone, Chinese or not, has a stake in seeing that Beijing's digital totalitarianism fails.

          Interview: Season Seven Opening Night Film for Chicago’s Asian Pop-Up Cinema is 'Adulthood'      Cache   Translate Page      

CHICAGO – It’s another opening and another show, as Season Seven of Chicago’s Asian Pop-Up Cinema (APUC) starts it’s run of showcase films, starting with South Korea’s “Adulthood” on Wednesday, September 12th, 2018. Director Kim In-seon and lead actress Lee Jae-in of “Adulthood” will appear on behalf of the film at the screening, which begins at 7pm at the AMC River East 21 theatre. For details and tickets, click here.

“Adulthood” is the story of Kyung-Un (Lee Jae-in), a 14-year-old girl who meets her uncle Jae-Min (Um Tae-Goo) for the first time at the funeral of her father (and his brother). The attention the uncle gives her at first is confusing, but his motive was to steal her insurance money to pay off a loan shark. When Kyung-Un finds out, she has no recourse but to join her uncle in a con job, designed to romance and then rip off a lonely pharmacist (Seo Jung-yeon). Somehow, these three souls learn more than they bargained for in this situation, and this emotional film is a simple story of unexpected redemption.

Season Seven of APUC, which runs from September 12th through November 14th, 2018, and will highlight films from South Korea, the Philippines, China, Thailand, India, Hong Kong, Japan, Tibet, Vietnam and Taiwan. The main feature film presentations will occur at the AMC River East 21 in downtown Chicago, with other various locations for special events, in addition to a number of free screenings.

In anticipation of the Season Seven Opening Night of APUC, HollywoodChicago.com spoke to director Kim In-seon and actress Lee Jae-in, and the two women collaborators talked about, through an interpreter, the process of creating the special relationships in the film.

HollywoodChicago.com: Kim, in writing the screenplay and piecing together the story, which of the characters did you most identify with, and how do you think that identity came out in the story?

Kim In-seon: At first, I connected to the character of Jae-Min, the uncle trying to find himself as an adult in his thirties… despite his age, he acted immature, and at that time it felt like me. [laughs] But as I was finishing the film, I was more connected to the younger character of Kyung-Un, because what she was going through was how I felt when I was a teenager, which was a loneliness and a desire to become an adult as quickly as possible.

HollywoodChicago.com: Jae, when you first read the script, what did you immediately understand about your character of Kyung-Un that made you know that you could portray her?

Lee Jae-in: We are of similar age as teenagers, and I understood her feeling of loneliness. All of the expressions of her emotions came through her feeling of being alone, and I knew I could portray that side of her.

HollywoodChicago.com: Kim, one of the underlying stories in the film is the difficulties of South Korean women to trust men. But what difficulty did you most want to portray in the relationship of the pharmacist Jum-Lee to the uncle Jae-Min?

Kim In-seon: More than a general distrust for men, I was focusing on the specific situation that Jum-Lee was facing… she was in her late forties, single and a professional. Her relationship options were limited, and she was finding that the attitude of men she was encountering was not serious. In that process she felt isolated, and it was hard for her to stay open to a possibility of connection.

What made the difference in the way Jae-Min approached her is that he had a daughter [part of the con was that Kyung-Un pretended to be Jae-Min’s daughter], and that is what opened Jum-Lee to the possibility of taking a chance again in that relationship. It was really about trusting her emotions and where she was in life.

HollywoodChicago.com: What part of the process while doing the film did you feel comfortable with your co-star Tae-Goo Um, and what part of his portrayal of the uncle Jae-Min did you most connect to?

Lee Jae-in: When I first met Tae-Goo, it felt awkward, but as we went through the stages of filmmaking he was incredibly nice and very funny. He also taught me a lot about acting, especially in detailed facial expressions.

His personality was so different than the Jae-Min character he was portraying, so I was amazed at times how well he was able to become the role. I believe that between Jae-Min and my character, they were fulfilling the emotional things that each were missing, and filling the void that they felt.

HollywoodChicago.com: Kim, the three main characters got a bit of redemption by the end of the film. Which of the characters do you believe most benefited by this redemption?

Kim In-seon: My intent was not to show any dramatic changes in the lives of those characters, but only a hint of change by the end. For example, Jae-Min slowly came out of his immaturity and started realizing his responsibilities, so there was growth there. With Kyung-Un it was the realization that someone could love and care about her again, which gave he self confidence. I didn’t see much growth in the Jum-Lee character, except to connect with Kyung-Un as a friend.

HollywoodChicago.com: How are women filmmakers treated in South Korea? Do you think there is opportunity there if you make successful films, or do you believe men are given better chances to succeed or try again than women?

Adult3

Kim In-seon: Before I got the opportunity to do this feature film, I started with three short films. At short film festivals in South Korea, the percentage of women filmmakers participating is around 70 percent. But when it comes to making either independent or commercial feature films, it’s almost impossible for women to get an opportunity. And as you said in the question, it is men that are more likely to get a second chance to make a film if the first one doesn’t make money. For women, that second chance doesn’t exist.

The type of films available for women to direct is also very limited. The commercial films are mostly in the thriller and action genre, and those are almost all directed by men. It’s frustrating for me, but the only way to change things within is to keep doing the work and putting it out there.

HollywoodChicago.com: Finally, for both of you. As Jae-Min and Kyung-Un walk down a new road in their relationship, what do you think is the most important things they learned in their journey of coming together?

Kim In-seon: To me, it was about really spending time with a person and getting to know them, and that leads to becoming a better person. Jae-Min and Kyung-Un learn a lot about each other and themselves in the time they spend together, and in that way become better people through that relationship.

Lee Jae-in: The character of Kyung-Un was seriously alone at the beginning of the film, and had learned to adapt to that loneliness. Her and Jae-Min adapted to each other, and for the first time in a long time she depended on someone, and learned to trust a togetherness in a relationship again. The uncle and the niece, in the end, had similar personalities, and I think they’ll continue to develop and cherish those similarities, and continue to be more honest as their lives go on.

Opening Night of Season Seven of the Asian Pop-Up Cinema is “Adulthood” on September 12th, 2018, at the AMC River East 21, 322 East Illinois Street, Chicago. Director Kim In-seon and lead actress Lee Jae-in will make an appearance on behalf of the film. For a complete overview Chicago’s Asian Pop-Up Cinema, click here.

          Apple iPhone XR Philippines Price and Release Date Guesstimate, Full Specs, Features      Cache   Translate Page      
American tech giant Apple Inc. has just officially lifted the veil on three new iPhone models for 2018, each having their own key selling points and highlights.

The most "affordable" of the trio is the the Apple iPhone XR, which has become the first ever iPhone to have Dual SIM functionality through one nanoSIM slot and another Digital eSIM slot for network carriers around the world that already support this kind of internal SIM card for smartphones.

Apple iPhone XR, Apple iPhone XR Philippines

Despite being the most budget-friendly model of the bunch, though, the iPhone XR's official suggested retail price in the US still starts at $749 USD, which is by no means cheap.

With current conversion and before taxes, that's around PHP 40,300 here in Philippines; More than twice the price of some popular midrange models in this market like the OPPO F9, Huawei Nova 3i, Pocophone F1, or even Vivo V11, which all have better specs than the iPhone XR in some departments like battery size, amount of RAM, and front camera resolution.

Apple iPhone XR, Apple iPhone XR Philippines

However, I'm sure that that information won't matter much to hardcore Apple fans who buy the latest iPhones not just because of the handsets' technical specifications but also because of how they personally feel when they carry these gadgets.

As I've shared in one interview that I did with Bloomberg Philippines a couple of years ago, Apple is unique in its ability to sell products through intangible marketing, which appeals to consumers' beliefs and emotions.

Apple iPhone XR, Apple iPhone XR Philippines

As tech blogger who does his best to be level-headed in reviewing gadgets, I am just relieved that this model sports a handful of tangible features that will benefit users beyond mere emotional connection.

For one, iPhone XR's mid-frame is crafted from Series 7000 Aluminum which is known for its durability. The glass-sandwich enclosure is also IP67 Splash, Water, and Dust Resistant, which can greatly contribute to the longevity of the device.

Another thing, I bet mobile photography enthusiasts will enjoy using this model's 12 MegaPixel f/1.8 rear camera which is powered by Apple's Neural Engine that improves its imaging performance in various lighting conditions and even enables virtual bokeh effect when shooting portraits.

If you're a power user or an avid gamer, the all-new Hexa-Core Apple A12 Bionic processor with integrated Quad-Core GPU should ensure ultra-smooth and lag-free experience even when running the most resource intensive titles that you can download from Apple App Store.

Apple iPhone XR, Apple iPhone XR Philippines

So what's the worst thing about the Apple iPhone XR? Well, just from looking at its specs-sheet, I'd say that the resolution of the 6.1-inch Liquid Retina Display is quite low -- and this means that it is not that pixel-dense or ultra-clear. Never mind the lack of 3D Touch, I wish that Apple had at least given this model a FullHD+ screen -- but I guess they didn't want iPhone XR to cannibalize on iPhone XS sales.

Anyway, I'm still looking forward to seeing this model in the flesh and to actually playing with it. After all, I'm loving the color options -- especially the Blue and Yellow variants, which look so unique and eye-catching.

Apple iPhone XR will be up for purchase at Apple Stores in more than fifty countries - including our fellow Asian countries Japan, Hong Kong, China, India, Oman, United Arab Emirates (UAE), Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, and Taiwan - starting on Friday, October 26, 2018.

La misteriosa desaparición pública de la actriz mejor pagada de China#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000\

El paradero desconocido de una de las actrices más famosas del gigante asiático en medio de un escándalo económico ha desatado toda clase de especulaciones.

Las interacciones de los poderes dictatoriales con los artistas del país en el que hacen y deshacen a su antojo sin legitimidad alguna siempre son conflictivas. Esta circunstancia se está viendo una vez más entre muchas en la República Popular China con la actriz Fan Bingbing, que ha participado en casi cuatro decenas de filmes chinos y hongkoneses hasta el momento, como La venganza del dragón (Yee Tung-Shing, 2009), Shaolin. La leyenda de los monjes guerreros (Benny Chan, 2011) o Yo no soy Madame Bovary (Feng Xiaogang, 2016), y también en producciones de Hollywood tales como Iron Man 3 (Shane Black, 2013) o X-Men: Días del futuro pasado (Bryan Singer, 2014), en las que interpreta a la doctora Wu Jiaqi y a la mutante Blink, con una pendiente de estreno, The King's Daughter (Sean McNamara, 2018), y otra en preparación, 355 (Simon Kinberg, 2020).

Según informa The Hollywood Reporter, no ha sido vista en público desde el pasado 1 de julio y sus redes sociales llevan en absoluto silencio desde el día 23 del mismo mes, lo cual ha desatado todo tipo de especulaciones en Asia sobre su paradero. Y es que el pasado julio le cayó encima un gran escándalo de evasión de impuestos en la industria cinematográfica de China: un destacado presentador de CCTV, Cui Yongyuan, filtró documentos sobre el fraude de una estrella de cine sin identificar que supuestamente llevaba a cabo la práctica de contratación conocida como “yin-yang”: las productoras proporcionan dos clases de contrato a sus actores, uno para que lo presenten al fisco, y otro con su sueldo verdadero. Y Fan Bingbing, a la que se ha señalado en este asunto, está siendo investigada por la policía de Jiangsu, sede de su empresa, al tiempo que sus representantes han rechazado las acusaciones.

Todo este embrollo se debe a que el Gobierno chino, que hoy encabeza Xi Jinping, ha intentado limitar las ganancias de los actores más relevantes durante los últimos años porque “alientan la adoración del dinero” y no “los valores socialistas básicos”, de modo que, según las autoridades, distorsionan la realidad de la industria del entretenimiento en el país y los lujos que rodean a estos artistas maleducan a los jóvenes chinos. Así, han aprobado límites sobre lo que los actores pueden embolsarse por su labor en películas y series, e impuestos desorbitados para apropiarse de sus ingresos. Y, con la explosión de este escándalo, la represión económica sólo se ha recrudecido, y un buen número de importantes compañías del ámbito —Huayi Brothers, Bona Film, Talent International, Le Vision, New Classic, Ciwen o Huace— se han tenido que comprometer formalmente a cumplir las demandas del Gobierno.

Como no podía ser de otra manera, la prensa china, la de Hong Kong o la de Taiwán han saltado sobre la incógnita de dónde se encuentra Fan Bingbing: el Economic Observer informó sobre las investigaciones del departamento de policía de Jiangsu y aseguró que la actriz y su hermano, Chengcheng, no podían abandonar el país, para luego eliminar la publicación de la noticia. El China Times o el Business Weekly extendieron el rumor de que ella había sido arrestada junto con su asistente personal y el contable de la productora que lleva su nombre, y otros distintos, que estaba en arresto domiciliario o que le habían prohibido actuar en tres añitos. A finales de agosto, el tabloide The Apple Daily difundió que Fan Bingbing había solicitando asilo político en una oficina de inmigración de Los Ángeles como le había aconsejado Jackie Chang, que lo niega. Y la semana pasada, el equipo de Securities Daily la puso “bajo control” gubernamental y, horas después, se retractaron. Todo un misterio, la desaparición pública de la actriz mejor pagada de China.

          China's 'Digital' Totalitarian Experiment      Cache   Translate Page      

Authored by Gordon Chang via The Gatestone Institute,

  • China's "social credit" system, which will assign every person a constantly updated score based on observed behaviors, is designed to control conduct by giving the ruling Communist Party the ability to administer punishments and hand out rewards. The former deputy director of the State Council's development research center says the system should be administered so that "discredited people become bankrupt".

  • Officials prevented Liu Hu, a journalist, from taking a flight because he had a low score. According to the Communist Party-controlled Global Times, as of the end of April 2018, authorities had blocked individuals from taking 11.14 million flights and 4.25 million high-speed rail trips.

  • Chinese officials are using the lists for determining more than just access to planes and trains. "I can't buy property. My child can't go to a private school," Liu said. "You feel you're being controlled by the list all the time."

  • Chinese leaders have long been obsessed with what Jiang Zemin in 1995 called "informatization, automation, and intelligentization," and they are only getting started Given the capabilities they are amassing, they could, the argument goes, make defiance virtually impossible. The question now is whether the increasingly defiant Chinese people will accept President Xi's all-encompassing vision.

By 2020, Chinese officials plan to have about 626 million surveillance cameras operating throughout the country. Those cameras will, among other things, feed information into a national "social credit system."

That system, when it is in place in perhaps two years, will assign to every person in China a constantly updated score based on observed behaviors. For example, an instance of jaywalking, caught by one of those cameras, will result in a reduction in score.

Although officials might hope to reduce jaywalking, they seem to have far more sinister ambitions, such as ensuring conformity to Communist Party political demands. In short, the government looks as if it is determined to create what the Economist called "the world's first digital totalitarian state."

China's President Xi Jinping is not merely an authoritarian leader. He evidently believes the Party must have absolute control over society and he must have absolute control over the Party. He is taking China back to totalitarianism as he seeks Mao-like control over all aspects of society. (Photo by Lintao Zhang/Getty Images)

That social credit system, once perfected, will surely be extended to foreign companies and individuals.

At present, there are more than a dozen national blacklists, and about three dozen various localities have been operating experimental social credit scoring systems. Some of those systems have failed miserably. Others, such as the one in Rongcheng in Shandong province, have been considered successful.

In the Rongcheng system, each resident starts with 1,000 points, and, based upon their changing score, are ranked from A+++ to D. The system has affected behavior: incredibly for China, drivers stop for pedestrians at crosswalks.

Drivers stop at crosswalks because residents in that city have, as Foreign Policyreported, "embraced" the social credit system. Some like the system so much that they have set up micro social credit systems in schools, hospitals, and neighborhoods. Social credit systems obviously answer a need for what people in other societies take for granted.

Yet, can what works on a city level be extended across China? As technology advances and data banks are added, the small experimental programs and the national lists will eventually be merged into one countrywide system. The government has already begun to roll out its "Integrated Joint Operations Platform," which aggregates data from various sources such as cameras, identification checks, and "wifi sniffers."

So, what will the end product look like? "It will not be a unified platform where one can type in his or her ID and get a single three-digit score that will decide their lives," Foreign Policy says.

Despite the magazine's assurances, this type of system is precisely what Chinese officials say they want. After all, they tell us the purpose of the initiative is to "allow the trustworthy to roam everywhere under heaven while making it hard for the discredited to take a single step."

That description is not an exaggeration. Officials prevented Liu Hu, a journalist, from taking a flight because he had a low score. The Global Times, a tabloid that belongs to the Communist Party-owned People's Dailyreported that, as of the end of April 2018, authorities had blocked individuals from taking 11.14 million flights and 4.25 million high-speed rail trips.

Chinese officials, however, are using the lists for determining more than just access to planes and trains. "I can't buy property. My child can't go to a private school," Liu said. "You feel you're being controlled by the list all the time."

The system is designed to control conduct by giving the ruling Communist Party the ability to administer punishments and hand out rewards. And the system could end up being unforgiving. Hou Yunchun, a former deputy director of the State Council's development research center, said at a forum in Beijing in May that the social credit system should be administered so that "discredited people become bankrupt".

"If we don't increase the cost of being discredited, we are encouraging discredited people to keep at it," Hou said. "That destroys the whole standard."

Not every official has such a vindictive attitude, but it appears that all share the assumption, as the dovish Zhi Zhenfeng of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences said, that "discredited people deserve legal consequences."

President Xi Jinping, the final and perhaps only arbiter in China, has made it clear how he feels about the availability of second chances. "Once untrustworthy, always restricted," the Chinese ruler says.

What happens, then, to a country where only the compliant are allowed to board a plane or be rewarded with discounts for government services? No one quite knows because never before has a government had the ability to constantly assess everyone and then enforce its will. The People's Republic has been more meticulous in keeping files and ranking residents than previous Chinese governments, and computing power and artificial intelligence are now giving China's officials extraordinary capabilities.

Beijing is almost certain to extend the social credit system, which has roots in attempts to control domestic enterprises, to foreign companies. Let us remember that Chinese leaders this year have taken on the world's travel industry by forcing hotel chains and airlines to show Taiwan as part of the People's Republic of China, so they have demonstrated determination to intimidate and punish. Once the social credit system is up and running, it would be a small step to include non-Chinese into that system, extending Xi's tech-fueled totalitarianism to the entire world.

The dominant narrative in the world's liberal democracies is that tech favors totalitarianism. It is certainly true that, unrestrained by privacy concerns, hardline regimes are better able to collect, analyze, and use data, which could provide a decisive edge in applying artificial intelligence A democratic government may be able to compile a no-fly list, but none could ever come close to implementing Xi Jinping's vision of a social credit system.

Chinese leaders have long been obsessed with what then-President Jiang Zemin in 1995 called "informatization, automation, and intelligentization," and they are only getting started. Given the capabilities they are amassing, they could, the argument goes, make defiance virtually impossible.

Technology might even make liberal democracy and free-markets "obsolete" writesYuval Noah Harari of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in the Atlantic. "The main handicap of authoritarian regimes in the 20th century — the desire to concentrate all information and power in one place — may become their decisive advantage in the 21st century," he writes.

There is no question that technology empowers China's one-party state to repress people effectively. Exhibit A for this proposition is, of course, the country's social credit system.

Yet China's communists will probably overreach. The country's experience so far with social credit systems suggests that officials are their own worst enemies. An early experiment to build such a system in Suining county in Jiangsu province was a failure:

"Both residents and state media blasted it for its seemingly unfair and arbitrary criteria, with one state-run newspaper comparing the system to the 'good citizen' certificates issued by Japan during its wartime occupation of China."

The Rongcheng system has been more successful because its scope has been relatively modest.

Xi Jinping will not be as restrained as Rongcheng's officials. He evidently believes the Party must have absolute control over society and he must have absolute control over the Party. It is simply inconceivable that he will not include in the national social credit system, when it is stitched together, political criteria. Already Chinese officials are trying to use artificial intelligence to predict anti-Party behavior.

Xi Jinping is not merely an authoritarian leader, as it is often said. He is taking China back to totalitarianism as he seeks Mao-like control over all aspects of society.

The question now is whether the increasingly defiant Chinese people will accept Xi's all-encompassing vision. In recent months, many have taken to the streets: truck drivers striking over costs and fees, army veterans marching for pensions, investors blocking government offices to get money back from fraudsters, Muslims surrounding mosques to stop demolition, and parents protesting the scourge of adulterated vaccines, among others. Chinese leaders obviously think their social credit system will stop these and other expressions of discontent.

Let us hope that China's people are not in fact discouraged. Given the breadth of the Communist Party's ambitions, everyone, Chinese or not, has a stake in seeing that Beijing's digital totalitarianism fails.


          Două concerte ale violonistului David Garrett, cu casa închisă, pe 13 şi 14 septembrie, la Sala Palatului      Cache   Translate Page      
Superstarul internaţional David Garrett va susţine, pe 13 şi 14 septembrie, două concerte crossover, de la ora 20,00, la Sala Palatului.

          'We're doing this in order to prevent World War III': I read Bob Woodward's explosive new Trump book cover-to-cover, and there's one big takeaway      Cache   Translate Page      

Donald Trump

  • Journalist Bob Woodward's explosive new book about President Donald Trump and his administration, "Fear: Trump in the White House," highlights one overriding theme in the president's worldview.
  • The most important thing is the bottom line.
  • The book portrays top military, foreign policy, and national security advisers fighting him on that point.

President Donald Trump's foreign policy is driven by one thing: the bottom line.

It's a different approach than perhaps any other in the nation's history — one that fits a president who made his experience in the business world. It runs counter to the advice of his top military and national security advisers, who time and time again try to make the case to him that the existing world order is worth paying for to "prevent World War III," as Defense Secretary James Mattis pointedly told him.

Amid all the eye-popping details from journalist Bob Woodward's explosive new book about President Donald Trump and his administration, "Fear: Trump in the White House," this theme stands out.

No argument from career officials — like Mattis, former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, former national security adviser H.R. McMaster, former National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn, and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Joseph Dunford — seems to convince Trump that the system is worth upholding and footing much of the bill for.

"I'm tired of hearing that we have to do this or that to protect our homeland or to ensure our national security," Trump said during a discussion on what the game-plan moving forward on Afghanistan, according to the book.

Repeatedly, he denigrated the advice of those advisers because, as Trump said, they had no business experience and had no concept of money:

  • "These military guys, they don't get business," Trump said. "They know how to be soldiers and they know how to fight. They don't understand how much it's costing."
  • "All they want to do is protect everybody — that we pay for," he said of his group of military, foreign policy, and national security advisers.
  • Pointing to McMaster, who Woodward reported was never able to mesh well with the president, Trump said he didn't know how the Iraqi government "managed to fool McMaster, but he's not a businessman."
  • Trump said American military generals "don't understand the cost/benefit analysis."

Whether on the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, the post-World War II European alliance headed up by the US, US defense commitments in South Korea, or the ongoing war in Afghanistan, Trump insisted that money alone should be the main driver of any policy outlook.

NATO? The countries must pay their fair share. Afghanistan? "I'm not making a deal on anything until we get minerals," Trump said. South Korea? Renegotiate a trade deal immediately, or remove all US soldiers from the peninsula.

This is especially obvious in debates over existing US trade deals, which nearly all of his advisers try to convince him are actually good for the country.

"We're upside down" on trade deals, Trump said. "We're underwater on every one of these."

U.S. Defense Secretary James Mattis gestures during a press briefing at the Pentagon in Washington, U.S., May 19, 2017.He insisted the other nations were "making money" off the US.

"Just look at all this stuff up there," Trump said, pointing at some graphics. "We're paying for it all."

Cohn at multiple junctures tried to explain the deals were good for the economy and allowed US consumers to buy high-quality goods. One example he gave was TVs from South Korea, which US consumers could buy for a much lower cost than a TV manufactured in the US. Those lower costs allowed consumers to spend more money on other American products.

"I don't want to hear that," Trump said, according to the book. "It's all bulls---."

'We're doing this in order to prevent World War III'

In a heated debate over South Korea, during which advisers were seeking to convince him to stay in the KORUS trade agreements, maintain troop levels, and keep the THAAD missile defense system in place, Cohn asked the president what he would "need in the region to sleep well at night?"

"I wouldn't need a f---ing thing," the president said. "And I'd sleep like a baby."

Sometimes, the advisers lost their cool. Tillerson, who Woodward seconded earlier reporting as calling Trump a "f---ing moron," was a prime example. After one meeting, Woodward wrote that Tillerson "could not abide Trump's attack on the generals" and that he was "speaking as if the US military was a mercenary for hire."

"If a country wouldn't pay us to be there, then we didn't want to be there," Woodward wrote of Tillerson's assessment of Trump's foreign policy views. "As if there were no American interests in forging and keeping a peaceful world order, as if the American organizing principle was money."

Soon, one of the most tense meetings between Trump and these advisers took place. Trump revisited his distaste for keeping troops on the Korean Peninsula. But this time, he began asking why the US protected other countries, such as Taiwan.

"We're doing this in order to prevent World War III," Mattis replied. Woodward wrote that the response was "breathtaking" for those in the room, calling it "a challenge to the president, suggesting he was risking nuclear war."

"But we're losing so much money in trade with South Korea, China and others," Trump responded. "I'd rather be spending money on our own country."

          Industry veteran Mark Peterman launches new airless tube brand, Air Fom      Cache   Translate Page      

TAIPEI, Taiwan (BRAIN) — Mark Peterman, a veteran of Cycling Sports Group and GT Bicycle, has launched a new company in Taiwan that will provide airless tire inserts that replace innertubes.

"Air Fom will provide airless insert technology for all cyclists that can be installed at your local IBD for an affordable price with pressure and ride performance close to air. Air Fom is a precision molded, multiple layer, hi tech foam insert that can be constructed to simulate different pressures. The patent pending design also allows Air Fom to be lightweight. A 700 x 40c insert (60 PSI) weighs approximately 260 grams in comparison to the avg weight of a normal 700 x 40c tube that is 160 grams. If a thorn proof tube is used as a comparison Air Fom weighs much less. Air Fom inserts are rated to last at least 5000 kilometers with a one-year warranty," the company said.

Peterman is leading a Taiwan-based company that will design, manufacture and distribute the Air Fom product line globally. The technology is patent pending with all products manufactured in Taichung, Taiwan, using Japanese materials. The material is recyclable back to the original raw material, the company said. 

Air Fom will begin manufacturing in the fourth quarter this year with shipments hitting shops early in January. The product line will include tire inserts for commuting, urban, e-MTB, mountain bikes and gravel. The company will meet with prospective distributors at the Taipei Cycle Show in October.

"The equipment segment is projected to dominate the aquaculture products market through the forecast period."

The equipment segment is projected to dominate the aquaculture products market in value terms, through 2023. The equipment used for rearing fish in aquaculture include containment equipment, feeders, water pumps and filters, water circulating and aerating equipment, and cleaning equipment.

Pumps are used to ensure that the fish have adequate fresh water. They fill the small ponds or lakes used for fish farming with fresh water from a larger nearby freshwater source.

Aeration devices provide fish with an adequate supply of oxygen. Most companies are now using RAS (Recirculating aeration systems) for efficient growth of fish. These aeration devices also make it easier to recycle the water after removing impurities.

Feeders are used for the inclusion of nutrients in aquaculture diets.

"The freshwater segment is estimated to account for the largest share of the aquaculture products market in 2018, in terms of culture."

The freshwater segment dominated the global aquatic products market in 2018. The freshwater aquaculture production is usually carried out using traditional techniques. It is an important sector for several economies making a significant contribution to their GDP. Freshwater fishing is considered an ancient human profession. Freshwater is spread over the world in the form of rivers, lakes, man-made reservoirs, and dams. Freshwater fishing has continuously contributed to providing animal protein. Equipment and supplies used to produce freshwater species are normally restricted to freshwater ponds, tanks, raceways, and aquarium systems. The aquaculture production from the pond is increased beyond the level of extensive aquaculture with the application of equipment, disinfectants, fertilizers, and vaccines, allowing higher stocking density and production per hectare. Several open-air concrete tanks, raceways or earth ponds of different sizes and depths are applied to different growth stages of the aquatic animals.

"The aquatic animals segment is estimated to account for a larger share of the aquaculture products market in 2018, in terms of species."

The aquatic animals segment is estimated to account for a larger share in 2018. It is also projected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period, since the production of fish is increasing to meet the ever-increasing demand for seafood across the globe. The gap in the supply and demand of fish favors the aquaculture production of fish, which, in turn, increases the demand of aquatic animals reared through aquaculture.

"Asia Pacific is projected to dominate the aquaculture products market during the review period."

In the global aquaculture products market, Asia Pacific is projected to be the largest region, in terms of value, between 2018 and 2023. This region comprises of economies such as China, India, Vietnam, Indonesia, Japan, and Thailand, which occupy a significant share in the global aquaculture products market. The rapid development of aquaculture in most of the countries in the region is improving the food supply and has also generated job opportunities. The increase in the middle-class population, especially in developing nations, and their increasing income are expected to drive the growth of the aquaculture industry in the coming years. The demand for aquaculture products is rising, as the farmers in the region are investing in new technologies and innovations in order to meet the increasing food supply and nutrient food. The consumption of fish and shrimp is witnessing an upward trend in the region, which aid the aquafarming industry. These factors exhibit the growth opportunities for aquaculture products in the region.

The market for aquaculture products is dominated by key players such as Pentair plc, (US), AKVA Group (Norway), Xylem Inc (US), Aquaculture Equipment Ltd (UK), Aquaculture System Technologies (US), Luxsol (Belgium), Pioneer Group (Taiwan), CPI Equipment Inc (US), Asakua (Turkey), FREA Aquaculture Solutions (Denmark), Lifegard Aquatics (US), Tan International Ltd (UK), Reef Industries Inc (US), Aquafarm Equipment AS (Norway), and Aquaculture of Texas, Inc (US).

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

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

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

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

          Comment on Apex Tool Group Cuts Armstrong and Allen Tool Brands?? by Curt      Cache   Translate Page      
Used Armstrong in the military, as well as other USA tools. Retired from that and got a "real job" and had to fill a tool list. On a budget because I was between jobs, I bought some good tools, and bought some "last me 5 years until I replace them" tools. I have a gearwrench torque wrench at home that was made in the USA, seemed about craftsman quality, and like the handle better than the craftsman it replaced, so to fill the tool list, bought the gearwrench mechanics tool set due to the socket assortment filled about 3/4 of the required sockets. When it showed up is when I discovered it is Taiwan made, but came with USA made long pattern Allen ball end keys. It is ok, but not all that impressed with the gear wrench. Bent the 1/2 long pattern wrench that came with it on the 2nd use. Just has to last 5 years. I get a yearly tool check, my 2nd one being last year. Decided to put off replacing wrenches last year (Armstrongs were the pick after comparison between SK, Wright, and Williams) and got other tools, although did get a couple of sets of midget combos. This year went to order full sets of Armstrong SAE and metric combo wrenches, and got depressed when I found out they shut down. Shopped the heck out of E-bay, Cripe, Epstein, and found the last wrench at a Fastenal dealer in Kansas that's too small to display inventory in the Fastenal's computer system. Had to get a well used 1 1/8 X 1 1/16 box wrench and a new 1 1/8 X 1 1/16 open end wrench as couldn't find those size combos, but I got my Armstrong wrenches. A year late but not a wrench short. Sockets are next year and will probably go with Wright, although I JUST bought the 50-pc 1/4" drive Armstrong set from Cripe, dipping into next years tool check which is 5 months away. I think Armstrong regular ratchets have seriously gone down hill with plastic flip levers and noticeable sloppiness in the mechanism, but I think fondness caused me to buy the 1/4" set and I can always use a different ratchet if this one isn't up to par. I also feel an emptiness in my soul at home when I grab a tools such as my Easco-KD adjustable wrench, Old Stanley-USA screwdrivers, and a few other tools. I knew something was up when I traded the 1/2" drive Craftsman ratchet I broke for a rebuilt one about 10 years ago at sears. RELUCTANTLY traded the 1/4" drive Craftsman ratchet I broke 3 years ago for a new Chinese POS at sears. The 3/8" drive ratchet is still in use with the brass showing through the worn off paint on the quick disconnect button and flip lever... please don't break! I will NEVER buy another gear wretch tool.

          Filipijnen maken zich op voor orkaan, Duterte staakt raketproef      Cache   Translate Page      

Het zuidoosten van Azië bereidt zich voor op de komst van orkaan Mangkhut. De tropische storm koerst af op de Filipijnen en raast in het weekend in de richting van Taiwan, Zuid-China en Hongkong.

De Filipijnse president Duterte was van plan om in de noordelijke provincie Bataan op een oorlogsschip een raketoefening bij te wonen, maar vanwege de storm is die oefening afgeblazen.

Het oog van Mangkhut lag vannacht nog ruim 700 kilometer ten oosten van het noordelijkste eiland van de Filipijnen en verplaatst zich met een snelheid van 20 kilometer per uur. De storm is toegenomen in kracht. Er zijn boven de oceaan windsnelheden gemeten van meer dan 200 kilometer per uur.

De Filipijnen krijgen jaarlijks te maken met zo'n twintig tropische stormen. Een van de dodelijkste raasde vijf jaar geleden over: in november 2013 eiste orkaan Haiyan zo'n 6300 levens. Meer dan vier miljoen mensen raakten dakloos.

De verwachting is dat de orkaan zaterdagochtend de noordelijke provincies van de Filipijnen bereikt.

In Hongkong houden ze rekening met windsnelheden van 220 kilometer per uur als hij daar aan land komt, vertelt correspondent Marieke de Vries in het NOS Radio 1 Journaal. "Dat wordt dan de zwaarste orkaan die ze daar ooit hebben meegemaakt. Zwaarder nog dan Hope in 1979, toen kwamen er twaalf mensen om het leven. Maar toen was er nog niet zoveel hoogbouw, ze hopen dat dat de wolkenkrabbers de wind zal breken."

Er wordt behoorlijk gehamsterd, zegt De Vries. "Inwoners hebben ook orkaan Hato van vorig jaar nog vers in het geheugen. Die storm werd toen wat onderschat, waardoor mensen dagen zonder water en eten kwamen te zitten. Daarom slaan ze nu groot in en zijn er foto's van lege schappen op sociale media te zien."

De minister van Veiligheid heeft het stadsbestuur vanmorgen bijeengeroepen om het rampenplan door te nemen. Een woordvoerder van een meteorologisch instituut waarschuwde mensen al om de situatie niet te onderschatten. "Deze storm is een heel ander verhaal. Ook als we niet vol getroffen worden, bestaat er een groot gevaar voor Hongkong."

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

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

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

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

Jika kalian sudah menyiapkan dua bahan ini langkah selanjutnya adalah cincang bawang bombay secukupnya. Kemudian campur dengan 1 sendok teh baking soda. Lalu letakkan di sudut atau tempat-tempat yang sering didatangi kecoak.

Kalau tidak ada bawang bombay, kalian bisa menggantinya dengan bawang merah. Hal ini lantaran aroma pedas pada bawang merah bisa membuat kecoak enyah seketika. Nah, itu dia cara mudah membasmi kecoak dengan dua bahan alami. 

Selamat mencoba.

          Chile and Argentina putting at risk their biodiversity      Cache   Translate Page      

To meet China’s demand, Chile and Argentina are scaling up fish farming. This bodes ill for the Southern Cone's unique and sensitive biodiversity. Español

Following rapid expansion in neighbouring Chile, Argentina is looking to advance the installation of salmon farms despite the risks intensive production present to its unique and sensitive biodiversity.

The Southern Cone countries are responding to increased demand for salmon globally, with China as a booming new market. The Asian country doubled imports from Chile in the first half of this year, according to official figures.

“China is a very significant market and we are optimistic that it will continue to grow. Consumption is increasing and salmon is already a part of the Chinese diet”, says Arturo Clement, president of SalmonChile, an industry association, and he adds: “For many years, we have been waiting for this to happen”.

Argentina spawns salmon industry

With a close eye on this trend, Argentina has initiated feasibility studies to begin production in the Beagle Channel, a strait in the southernmost Tierra del Fuego region of South America.

The first step will be to evaluate potentially suitable sites for production, according to spokespersons from the Argentine Undersecretary of Fisheries and Aquaculture.

Biodiversity experts and environmental groups see these studies as a mere formality that will be overshadowed by the interest in expanding production in Patagonia, which has lingered for years.

However, biodiversity experts and environmental groups see these studies as a mere formality that will be overshadowed by the interest in expanding production in Patagonia, which has lingered for years.

They also claim the introduction of salmon farms violates the UN’s Convention on Biological Diversity, an international agreement signed by Argentina and Chile prohibiting the introduction of ‘exotic’ species.

“There is a good chance that the salmon farms will be set up. They have the capital and the interested investors. However, we are extremely concerned that moving forward with its development would cause irreversible damage to the environment”, says Alexandra Sapoznikow, coordinator of the Forum for the Conservation of the Patagonian Sea and Areas of Influence.

The introduction of salmon would impact invertebrate organisms unique to the region, such as cold water corals and sponges, experts say.

In Chile and Norway, the world’s leading salmon producers, fish live on a controlled diet based on soybean meal which, when excreted, changes the sea’s chemical composition.

“Each cage can house between 30,000 and 50,000 salmon which defecate all day and contaminate the seabed. The faeces decompose and produce nitrogen and oxygen, altering the quality of the water and leading to the flowering of toxic algae”, says Juan Carlos Cárdenas, director of Chilean NGO EcoOcéanos.

Furthermore, salmon often escape from cages, threatening native fish. “Salmon is not a native species and that brings problems. They are carnivorous, they devour other species in the area, and become predators,” says Estefanía González, oceans coordinator for Greenpeace Chile.

She adds: “Patagonia possesses unique geographical conditions and great environmental diversity. Intense industrial activity involving an exotic species is not compatible with this”.

Argentina and Chile would do well to learn from past experience. A century ago, they introduced trout to Patagonian rivers, primarily for recreational fishing.

Yet uncontrolled breeding meant numbers of the invasive species grew rapidly, leading to devastating impacts on local aquatic ecosystems.

Chile: regional salmon powerhouse

The majority of pink salmon eaten today in Latin America comes from Chilean farms. The country exports two main species: Salmon salar (better known as Atlantic salmon) and the Coho salmon (known as Pacific salmon).

Offical figures show that Chile currently exports 820.000 tons of salmon per year, worth some 4.7 billion dollars. The US, Japan, Brazil and Russia are the largest export destinations, with China growing in prominence having imported 24,000 tons in the first half of this year.

Chilean exports to China are expected to grow in tandem with China’s consumption of other seafood products. Today, China consumes 37% of the world’s seafood and aquatic products, a figure that is expected to exceed 50% within the next decade. 

Cages, for example, are surrounded by nets painted with heavy metals such as copper to prevent the adhesion of marine organisms. These substances are highly toxic and are also harmful to biodiversity.

But there is an inverse relationship with the quality of food imported. “Chile offers a cheaper and poorer quality salmon than Norway”, says Alex Muñoz, director for Latin America of National Geographic’s Pristine Seas initiative. 

“Sales to more demanding markets such as the US are falling, while exports to countries with weaker regulations are steadily growing”.

Other common practices used in salmon production worry environmental groups. Cages, for example, are surrounded by nets painted with heavy metals such as copper to prevent the adhesion of marine organisms. These substances are highly toxic and are also harmful to biodiversity.

Dyes are used to make the salmon meat pink since it is naturally white when produced industrially. Wild salmon, on the other hand, feed on shrimp and crabs, which gives it its particular colour.

Antibiotic consumption

Industrial salmon production can also pose health risks for consumers as a result of exposure to high levels of antibiotics, especially in Chile.

Oceana, an NGO, estimates that by weight, Chile uses almost 700 times more antibiotics than Norway to produce salmon.

While Chile produced 727.8 tons of salmon using 382.5 tons of antibiotics in 2016, the latest year for which data is available, Norway produced nearly twice as much salmon (over 1.233 tons) using just 523 kilos, or half a ton, of antibiotic substances.

According to the Chilean salmon association, salmon reaches consumers without antibiotics, which are used as growth promoters and not to prevent diseases.

They say producers must respect a grace period, during which time fish metabolise the chemical and expel it from the body. However, this does not always happen and antibiotics ingested through eating salmon can generate resistance to them.

For this reason, the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the Food and Agricultural Organisation of the United Nations (FAO) have called on companies to use antibiotics responsibly.

“An exorbitant amount of antibiotics is used and there are no regulations controlling their use. The industry gives healthy salmon antibiotics to keep them from getting sick. In addition, there are problems with inspection and control, which should ensure that the grace period is being respected”, says Cárdenas. “The consumers do not know what they are eating”, he warns.

Large supermarket chains in the US and Canada have in recent years rejected imports of salmon from Chile because of their high levels of antibiotics and food safety concerns.

China introduced imports of Chilean salmon following a half-decade diplomatic conflict with Norway. Meanwhile, concern over food safety has become a hot topic in China, given new regulations enabling trout to be labelled and sold as salmon. 

But while Chile and Argentina look to capitalise on the growth in consumption amid looser regulations in China, other parts of the world are scaling back imports.

Large supermarket chains in the US and Canada have in recent years rejected imports of salmon from Chile because of their high levels of antibiotics and food safety concerns. Moreover, Washington State, in the US recently banned the installation of cultivation centres due their environmental impacts.

For Muñoz, ignoring these moves would be disaster: “Argentina’s Patagonia is one of the last wild and pristine ecosystems in the world.  The country would make a monumental mistake if salmon farming were to be developed.  It is an exotic and invasive species which generates an environmental problem that is difficult to solve”.

By 2025, Taiwan aims to reach a cumulative installed solar PV capacity of 20 GW. However, by mid-2018, just 11.2% of thisgoal had been met. TrendForce analyst, Rhea Tsao, examines the situation and discusses what needs to be done to reach the target.

Taiwan’s new government, elected in 2016, has been actively promoting the development of new energy, with the aim of phasing out nuclear energy in 2025, and increasing the share of renewable energy to 20%.

LifeVantage Overview: Better health, better lives, and a better world. They are using groundbreaking science, and a new approach to entrepreneurship to make life a little better for everyone. THE FUTURE OF HEALTH? NOW. LifeVantage specializes in a new science called Nutrigenomics; researching, testing, and creating products to address the biochemical effects of aging, with the ultimate goal of biohacking the human body to live longer – much, MUCH longer. In plain English – they agree with leading researchers that extending human life is inevitable, but they believe in order to enjoy that increased lifespan, humans need to lengthen their health span. This science does not just help people good, it lets them enjoy life—which also helps them feel good. http://g3development.lifevantage.com/promotions/

OXIDATIVELY SPEAKING: One of the main biochemical effects of aging is oxidative stress. Oxidation causes the human cells to start wearing down. They are reversing the process. In fact, in a recent study, the National Institute of Aging found that in male mice Nrf2 was the only supplement scientifically proven to increase lifespan by 7 percent. Not to boast, (well maybe a little) but they are pretty proud of that. http://g3development.lifevantage.com/company/lifevantage-legacy/

CELL-POWERED LONGEVITY: However, LifeVantage did not stop there. The second biochemical effect of aging is mitochondrial decline. Basically human cells lose power. One needs that power so that their organs can work efficiently, so one can think clearly, and the body can act when it is called upon. When the cells have the power to do their thing, humans feel better and live longer. LiveVantage is boosting mitochondrial production so one can keep that cellular energy for as long as possible. Allowing them to keep doing their thing, whatever that thing is.

MAKE THE MOST OUT OF LIFE: At LifeVantage, they believe working to extend life comes with a responsibility to make that life worth living. And they believe that physical, financial and health go hand-in-hand. LifeVantage is giving people both with groundbreaking products and the best entrepreneurial vehicle around. No lattes or ping-pong, just the freedom to work on their own terms. Sharing products one has had a personal experience with. http://g3development.lifevantage.com/mylifeventure/

          Chile and Argentina putting at risk their biodiversity      Cache   Translate Page      

To meet China’s demand, Chile and Argentina are scaling up fish farming. This bodes ill for the Southern Cone's unique and sensitive biodiversity. Español

Following rapid expansion in neighbouring Chile, Argentina is looking to advance the installation of salmon farms despite the risks intensive production present to its unique and sensitive biodiversity.

The Southern Cone countries are responding to increased demand for salmon globally, with China as a booming new market. The Asian country doubled imports from Chile in the first half of this year, according to official figures.

“China is a very significant market and we are optimistic that it will continue to grow. Consumption is increasing and salmon is already a part of the Chinese diet”, says Arturo Clement, president of SalmonChile, an industry association, and he adds: “For many years, we have been waiting for this to happen”.

Argentina spawns salmon industry

With a close eye on this trend, Argentina has initiated feasibility studies to begin production in the Beagle Channel, a strait in the southernmost Tierra del Fuego region of South America.

The first step will be to evaluate potentially suitable sites for production, according to spokespersons from the Argentine Undersecretary of Fisheries and Aquaculture.

Biodiversity experts and environmental groups see these studies as a mere formality that will be overshadowed by the interest in expanding production in Patagonia, which has lingered for years.

However, biodiversity experts and environmental groups see these studies as a mere formality that will be overshadowed by the interest in expanding production in Patagonia, which has lingered for years.

They also claim the introduction of salmon farms violates the UN’s Convention on Biological Diversity, an international agreement signed by Argentina and Chile prohibiting the introduction of ‘exotic’ species.

“There is a good chance that the salmon farms will be set up. They have the capital and the interested investors. However, we are extremely concerned that moving forward with its development would cause irreversible damage to the environment”, says Alexandra Sapoznikow, coordinator of the Forum for the Conservation of the Patagonian Sea and Areas of Influence.

The introduction of salmon would impact invertebrate organisms unique to the region, such as cold water corals and sponges, experts say.

In Chile and Norway, the world’s leading salmon producers, fish live on a controlled diet based on soybean meal which, when excreted, changes the sea’s chemical composition.

“Each cage can house between 30,000 and 50,000 salmon which defecate all day and contaminate the seabed. The faeces decompose and produce nitrogen and oxygen, altering the quality of the water and leading to the flowering of toxic algae”, says Juan Carlos Cárdenas, director of Chilean NGO EcoOcéanos.

Furthermore, salmon often escape from cages, threatening native fish. “Salmon is not a native species and that brings problems. They are carnivorous, they devour other species in the area, and become predators,” says Estefanía González, oceans coordinator for Greenpeace Chile.

She adds: “Patagonia possesses unique geographical conditions and great environmental diversity. Intense industrial activity involving an exotic species is not compatible with this”.

Argentina and Chile would do well to learn from past experience. A century ago, they introduced trout to Patagonian rivers, primarily for recreational fishing.

Yet uncontrolled breeding meant numbers of the invasive species grew rapidly, leading to devastating impacts on local aquatic ecosystems.

Chile: regional salmon powerhouse

The majority of pink salmon eaten today in Latin America comes from Chilean farms. The country exports two main species: Salmon salar (better known as Atlantic salmon) and the Coho salmon (known as Pacific salmon).

Offical figures show that Chile currently exports 820.000 tons of salmon per year, worth some 4.7 billion dollars. The US, Japan, Brazil and Russia are the largest export destinations, with China growing in prominence having imported 24,000 tons in the first half of this year.

Chilean exports to China are expected to grow in tandem with China’s consumption of other seafood products. Today, China consumes 37% of the world’s seafood and aquatic products, a figure that is expected to exceed 50% within the next decade. 

Cages, for example, are surrounded by nets painted with heavy metals such as copper to prevent the adhesion of marine organisms. These substances are highly toxic and are also harmful to biodiversity.

But there is an inverse relationship with the quality of food imported. “Chile offers a cheaper and poorer quality salmon than Norway”, says Alex Muñoz, director for Latin America of National Geographic’s Pristine Seas initiative. 

“Sales to more demanding markets such as the US are falling, while exports to countries with weaker regulations are steadily growing”.

Other common practices used in salmon production worry environmental groups. Cages, for example, are surrounded by nets painted with heavy metals such as copper to prevent the adhesion of marine organisms. These substances are highly toxic and are also harmful to biodiversity.

Dyes are used to make the salmon meat pink since it is naturally white when produced industrially. Wild salmon, on the other hand, feed on shrimp and crabs, which gives it its particular colour.

Antibiotic consumption

Industrial salmon production can also pose health risks for consumers as a result of exposure to high levels of antibiotics, especially in Chile.

Oceana, an NGO, estimates that by weight, Chile uses almost 700 times more antibiotics than Norway to produce salmon.

While Chile produced 727.8 tons of salmon using 382.5 tons of antibiotics in 2016, the latest year for which data is available, Norway produced nearly twice as much salmon (over 1.233 tons) using just 523 kilos, or half a ton, of antibiotic substances.

According to the Chilean salmon association, salmon reaches consumers without antibiotics, which are used as growth promoters and not to prevent diseases.

They say producers must respect a grace period, during which time fish metabolise the chemical and expel it from the body. However, this does not always happen and antibiotics ingested through eating salmon can generate resistance to them.

For this reason, the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the Food and Agricultural Organisation of the United Nations (FAO) have called on companies to use antibiotics responsibly.

“An exorbitant amount of antibiotics is used and there are no regulations controlling their use. The industry gives healthy salmon antibiotics to keep them from getting sick. In addition, there are problems with inspection and control, which should ensure that the grace period is being respected”, says Cárdenas. “The consumers do not know what they are eating”, he warns.

Large supermarket chains in the US and Canada have in recent years rejected imports of salmon from Chile because of their high levels of antibiotics and food safety concerns.

China introduced imports of Chilean salmon following a half-decade diplomatic conflict with Norway. Meanwhile, concern over food safety has become a hot topic in China, given new regulations enabling trout to be labelled and sold as salmon. 

But while Chile and Argentina look to capitalise on the growth in consumption amid looser regulations in China, other parts of the world are scaling back imports.

Large supermarket chains in the US and Canada have in recent years rejected imports of salmon from Chile because of their high levels of antibiotics and food safety concerns. Moreover, Washington State, in the US recently banned the installation of cultivation centres due their environmental impacts.

For Muñoz, ignoring these moves would be disaster: “Argentina’s Patagonia is one of the last wild and pristine ecosystems in the world.  The country would make a monumental mistake if salmon farming were to be developed.  It is an exotic and invasive species which generates an environmental problem that is difficult to solve”.

În timp ce acest dispozitiv poate fi cumpărat independent, ASUS va oferi şi un pachet complet, care va include toate accesoriile necesare pentru a putea rula jocuri în orice fel de condiţii. Se pare însă că va exista şi o ediţie foarte limitată, noi imagini scăpate pe internet sugerând că va fi livrată într-o... valiză.

Imaginile ataşate au fost publicate pe internet de publicaţia taiwaneză ePrice, care a primit terminalul la review alături de toate accesoriile sale într-un pachet mare, voluminos şi greu. Aceasta este sub formă de valiză de transport, de genul cărora pe care le-ai putea pune la cală într-un avion, cu exterior dur, pentru a proteja conţinutul.

În valiză sunt incluse toate cutiile pentru telefon şi fiecare accesoriu în parte, accesorii care sunt multe la număr. Există inclus în pachetul telefonului un cooler cu luminiţe RGB, un dock pentru utilizarea în mod desktop, alături de un display, tastatură şi mouse, un adaptor wireless 801.11ad pentru afişarea în timp real pe un televizor, un gamepad cu butoane, cât şi un dock cu display secundar. Preţul întregul pachet depăşeşte 2.000 de euro.

Aceasta nu este prima dată când ASUS livrează produse în valiză, modelele sale de laptop-uri ROG experimentale, cu răcire pe lichid, fiind livrate într-un pachet similar, cu toate accesoriile necesare, precum cele două adaptoare de priză necesare pentru rularea la performanţă maximă.

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

A Sea Change in the Security of the South Pacific

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

By Jacob L. Shapiro


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

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

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


 

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

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

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

          BMW下一代G20 3-Series風阻系數僅0.23 Cd 最快有可能在下個月巴黎車展上亮相|InCar癮車報      Cache   Translate Page      

全新世代的BMW(寶馬)3-Series(G20)正進入最後的測試階段,因此,這家德國汽車品牌正努力為新車的到來進行宣傳。近日他們就釋出了幾部G20 3-Series在世界各地路試的影片。

從美國開始,全新世代的3-Series被帶到內華逹州的死亡谷進行炎熱高溫氣候的測試,G20 3-Series也出現在北極圈附近的瑞典Arjeplog進行極低溫的路試。毋庸置疑,全新3-Series一定會出現在Nurburgring Nordschleife賽道上進行測試評估,當然也一定會出現在位於德國Aschheim的BMW測試場地內。

 

G20 3-Series的開發計劃也涉及到長時間的風洞測試。因為BMW想要盡可能的降低3-Series的風阻。工程師長時間努力的結果有了回報,他們為新世代3-Series打造出了極為優異的0.23 Cd風阻係數,這使得G20 3-Series成為有史以來擁有最佳空氣力學設計的量產車之一。只比W177 A-Class和即將離任的CLA-Class高一點,這兩款Mercedes-Benz(賓士)的風阻係數均為0.22 Cd。另外還有Volkswagen(褔斯)XL1的0.19 Cd,不過這款車並不算是常規量產車。

雖然BMW非常樂意公布測試影片,但依然對量產車的許多規格數據守口如瓶。然而,他們之前曾表示,G20 3-Series的重心低於前代產品,重量減輕了55公斤。而且還有完美的50:50重量分配,各種懸吊選項和經徹底修改的四缸汽油引擎。

隨著預告活動的加劇,有傳聞表示BMW將在下個月初的2018巴黎車展上發表下一代3-Series轎車。所以BMW有可能會提前在車展開始的前幾天揭開G20 3-Series的神秘面紗。而在2019年上半年,我們可能還會看到3-Series Touring亮相。

          Connecting capabilities for digital innovation      Cache   Translate Page      

A connected market, increasingly digital-savvy consumers and new digital innovations are lowering the barriers of entry into traditional industries. Industry disruptors such as Alibaba, Baidu and Flipkart have chipped away at the market shares of incumbent firms by offering customer value propositions that maximize convenience, increase transparency and improve savings.

This has made digital transformation a pressing issue for senior leaders in Asia. In addition to enabling cost savings, expanding market reach and improving productivity, digital transformation offers organizations the means to compete more effectively and tap new revenue opportunities.

To achieve this, organizations need access to the right digital infrastructure, human capital and industry connectedness, as identified in Connecting Capabilities: The Asian Digital Transformation Index, a report from The Economist Intelligence Unit commissioned by Telstra.

The report uses 20 quantitative indicators and a survey of 870 executives to rank 11 markets in the region – China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan and Thailand. These markets were also compared with Australia, the UK and US. The indicators fall under three broad categories: digital infrastructure, human capital and industry connectedness.

“Essentially, the report underscored the importance of high-quality digital infrastructure, an educated and technically literate workforce, and a well-functioning technology ecosystem to thrive,” said Darrin Webb, COO for Telstra Enterprise.

Dialing in the new economy
Ninety-three percent of respondents acknowledged that a country’s infrastructure is important for their organization’s digital transformation efforts.

Singapore, South Korea and Japan were the top Index performers in this category, with Hong Kong and Taiwan coming fourth and fifth respectively. In fact, the country performance in the digital infrastructure category mirrored the overall ranking, highlighting its importance.

“A country’s investment in telecommunications and ICT expenditure can be leveraged by companies to their advantage. The survey clearly showed that there cannot be advanced digital transformation without strong digital infrastructure,” said Mr. Webb.

Crossing the digital divide
Access to talent can impact your digital success. Only 16% of firms surveyed noted that it is “very easy” to find employees with the right digital skills. South Korea, Japan and Hong Kong scored well in this category, followed by Singapore and Taiwan.

The report noted that attracting the right digital talent will continue to be a global challenge. This is because many firms do not know what digital skills to look for, and the current global education system is also ill-equipped to prepare students for the changing digital landscape.

Compounding the human capital problem further is the growing digital divide when it comes to internet usage, which may be attributed to a lack of skill, affordability or interest. This is making it difficult for Asian countries to get their entire population online and enjoy the economic benefits.

Organizations can benefit greatly from closing these digital divides. “Bridging the digital divide not only brings in more customers, it also allows them to be actively involved in corporate digital transformation efforts like involving customers in a design process rather working on assumptions,” said Mr. Webb.

Building connectedness
Industry connectedness plays a vital role in digital success and competitiveness. According to the Connecting Capabilities report, strong digital partnerships, the size of the e-commerce market and open data availability allow firms to gain new insights and access important resources, such as expertise and tools.

The report named Japan, Singapore and Taiwan as leaders in this category, with South Korea and Hong Kong close behind. Japan leads based on its strength in digital partnerships.

“This is an area where companies like Telstra can play a huge role. We offer a strong eco-system for firms to build the right digital partnerships, allowing them to realize the benefits of digital transformation by developing more innovative ideas through collaboration and co-creation with other firms,” said Mr. Webb.

Meanwhile, the report also observed a major shift in focus for digital transformation. In the past, social media and mobile infrastructure were key drivers. Today, many senior executives (33%) believe new technology innovations such as data analytics and smart embedded devices are important, with the report citing data analytics as offering advantages in an increasingly competitive market.

“Overall, the report reinforced the importance of digital transformation for the next three years. Without the right infrastructure, skills and eco-systems, it will be difficult for firms to take full advantage of the opportunities created by digital transformation,” said Mr. Webb.

          Un foro de cuarenta empresas e instituciones capta al nuevo turismo chino      Cache   Translate Page      
Más allá de los toros, el flamenco y el fútbol, que siguen funcionando como reclamos más reconocibles, España ofrece una variada oferta turística que intenta captar visitantes en el mayor mercado del mundo: China. Un objetivo que ha unido a 40 empresas privadas e instituciones públicas en el II Foro de Turismo España-China (Fotec), inaugurado este jueves en Shanghái. Con la presencia de grandes nombres como Iberia, El Corte Inglés y Hoteles NH Collection, e instituciones públicas de Valencia, Galicia, Aragón, Baleares y Canarias, este evento las reúne hasta el viernes con 150 compañías chinas del sector turístico. Entre ellas destacan gigantes como los portales de reservas por internet Ctrip y Lvmama, con cientos de millones de clientes. «Queremos potenciar el negocio ˝online˝ porque es prioritario en China», explica a ABC Rafael Cascales, presidente de la Asociación de Turismo España-China (ATEC), organizadora del evento junto a patrocinadores públicos como Marca España y Turespaña y privados como Lotusse, Loewe, Pascual y la joyera Paloma Sánchez, afincada en Pekín. Para promocionar la imagen de España en China, Cascales abogó por «complementar la iniciativa pública con la privada, ya que hace falta una colaboración mayor para aumentar el número de visitantes». A tenor de las cifras que baraja ATEC, algo mayores que las oficiales, 718.000 turistas chinos visitaron España el año pasado. Aunque supone un aumento del 23,3% con respecto a 2016, están todavía lejos de los 2,3 millones que recibió Francia o de los 1,4 millones que viajaron a Italia. Las dificultades para conseguir el visado, mayores que en otros países, y la larga escasez de vuelos directos, solventada en los dos últimos años con 32 conexiones, han relegado a España a un papel secundario del que se quiere despojar. «Toros, flamenco y fútbol, pero también cultura, arte, gastronomía, Picasso, Dalí, Miró y el modernismo interesan cada vez más al público chino», aseguró en la apertura del foro el consejero de Turismo de la Embajada española en Pekín, Darío Polo. A su juicio, la prioridad es captar a la creciente clase media de este país, que cada vez viaja más al extranjero. Según las previsiones de la Organización Mundial del Turismo, 200 millones de chinos saldrán de su país en 2020. Una gigantesca oportunidad de negocio porque los chinos también son los turistas que más gastan: una media de 2.500 euros en España frente a los 740 que se suelen dejar los visitantes extranjeros. Preparándose para esta avalancha que se avecina, grandes firmas como El Corte Inglés ya aceptan el pago a través del móvil con Alipay, muy popular en este país, y están trabajando para incorporar también Wechat, la aplicación de mensajes más extendida en China. «De los clientes extranjeros y no residentes, que tienen una tarjeta con un 10% de descuento y derecho a la devolución del IVA, los que más gastan son los chinos, seguidos de rusos y latinoamericanos», detalla Ana Xu, del Departamento de Marketing Internacional y Lujo. Atento también a las nuevas tecnologías, el Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza tiene, además de audioguías en mandarín, su propio portal con el dominio chino (cn) y sus entradas ya se pueden comprar en Ctrip. «Hemos pasado en tres años de prácticamente cero a 10.000 visitantes chinos, con unos crecimientos del 66% en 2017 y del 100% en el primer trimestre de este año», detalla Elena Benarroch, jefa de Promoción y Marketing. Aprovechando también la cultura, las islas de Gran Canaria y La Palma se promocionan en China con el recuerdo de la escritora taiwanesa San Mao, que vivió en Telde y cuya trágica historia de amor con el buzo José Quero inspiró sus libros y emociona a millones de lectores en este país. «Hemos creado la Ruta de San Mao porque vivió en Canarias una parte muy importante de su vida y muchos chinos vienen a ver su casa y los lugares que frecuentaba, de los que escribía en sus obras», señala Inés Jiménez, consejera de Turismo del Cabildo de Gran Canaria. En Baleares, la isla de Formentera luce con orgullo sus aguas cristalinas gracias a su posidonia, la planta subacuática autóctona del Mediterráneo que se extiende por ocho kilómetros de sus costas y es Patrimonio de la Humanidad desde 1999. «Un metro cúbico de pradera submarina de posidonia, que el ser vivo más antiguo porque tiene 100.000 años de antigüedad, emite cinco veces más oxígeno que un metro cúbico de selva amazónica», se enorgullece Carlos Bernús, director de Turismo de Formentera. Junto al arte y la naturaleza, el deporte es otro de los atractivos de España, sobre todo el fútbol. «Ofrecemos los éxitos de los equipos españoles para organizar programas de entrenamiento para niños y cursos para entrenadores, que se pueden compaginar con estudios y turismo», asegura Francisco Calvello, de Football and Travel. Con experiencia en Kuwait, Sudáfrica y EE.UU., donde han captado equipos y jóvenes promesas para formarse en España, esta empresa desembarca en China por el auge que está viviendo el fútbol en los últimos años. De igual modo, el ascenso de la clase media ha ampliado rápidamente el perfil del turista chino, que antes viajaba en grupo y visitaba varios países europeos en pocos días y ahora prefiere experiencias únicas y personales si puede permitírselo. Gracias al extraordinario crecimiento económico que vive el país, cada vez son más los chinos que contratan itinerarios «a la carta» como los que ofrece Premium Incoming. «Nuestros viajes de experiencias incluyen alojamientos en paradores nacionales o monasterios como el de Piedra, comidas en restaurantes con estrellas Michelin, visitas a fincas de toros y bodegas, asistencia a partidos de fútbol y, por supuesto, compras todos los días», enumera Laura Aguilar, directora de Ventas de Premium Incoming. Además, su compañía ha llevado a España a trabajadores de multinacionales chinas, como Huawei y Hainan Airlines, en viajes corporativos de incentivos. Desde los reclamos clásicos hasta las últimas tendencias, España renueva sus incontables encantos para captar al turismo chino.

          Master of None’s Alan Yang on His Emmy Speech and Why He Can’t Talk About His New Show, Forever      Cache   Translate Page      

Alan Yang and Matt Hubbard don’t want viewers to know almost anything about their new Amazon series, Forever (premiering Friday). In an unusual letter to critics, the co-showrunners asked that reviews be “spoiler-free,” as their Maya Rudolph and Fred Armisen­–starring half-hour dramedy was “designed … to take some big twists and turns.” This is a vast understatement. But they are entirely correct about the show’s pleasures largely being dependent on surprises—gentle yet radical subversions of Hollywood tropes that gesture toward real-life complexities.

Partly a product of Rudolph and Armisen’s desire to work together, Forever both builds on and detours from Yang’s earlier work. Its romantic melancholy is redolent of Master of None, which he co-created with Aziz Ansari, but its existential preoccupations bear little resemblance to his more lighthearted work on Parks and Recreation (where he met Hubbard). While leaving the door open for another season of Master of None—“Aziz and I are talking all the time,” he says—Yang has built a mini-empire based on his interest in immigrant and Asian American stories. He’s an executive producer on Apple’s upcoming Little America series, described as a “collective portrait of America’s immigrants—and thereby a portrait of America itself.” (Disclosure: I was contracted to edit some interviews in the very earliest stages of the text project that became Little America.) While promoting Forever, Yang’s also shooting his feature directorial debut, a multigenerational Taiwanese-American family saga called Tigertail, starring John Cho.

Slate talked to Yang about Forever’s “risky” storyline, which goes against everything he was taught about TV writing, and how to write a believable romance. And as his show debuts just a couple of weeks after #AsianAugust, the writer-director talked about his now-famous 2016 Emmy speech, as well as which animal enjoys far greater representation in Hollywood than Asian Americans.

This interview has been edited and condensed for clarity.

Inkoo Kang: In 2016, when you were accepting the Outstanding Writing Emmy for Master of None, you asked Asian parents (“just a couple of you”) to get their kids cameras instead of violins. What kind of reaction have you had to that speech?

Alan Yang: It’s been really positive. I’ve heard from a lot of people in the Asian American community who are trying to pursue creative fields, and one of the things that’s happened is—yes, there has been a lack of roles, a lack of representation, a lack of opportunity—but there’s also the element that a lot of Asian American immigrants don’t necessarily prioritize the arts. And that’s totally understandable, because sometimes, when you’re an immigrant from an Asian country, it’s so much safer to push your kids to do something in an objective field.

If you’re an English major and you’re writing an essay, the grade on that is subjective.
Someone is judging you based on subjective criteria, and you may not share the same life experience or the same perspective [as your evaluator]. So it’s understandable that an Asian parent might be like, “Well, why don’t you do math? The answer’s either right or wrong, and you can get it right.” So I think that’s been the instinct for a lot of Asian immigrant parents—not all of them, obviously.

Were your parents encouraging of your aspirations to work in TV?

They begrudgingly were, and they became a lot more open-minded after I got a job. But yeah, it’s scary. I graduated from college and moved out to L.A. and was essentially broke and unemployed. So in the grand scheme of things, I can’t believe how supportive my parents were.

Do they watch your shows?

They do watch my shows, and they love them. My mom’s really funny—she’s a high school teacher—and she’s always giving me reports on whether her students like my shows. I don’t know why. This is no shame on this show, but Season 1 of Parks and Rec, she was like, “The kids don’t like the show, Alan. They think it’s boring.” Later, she was like, “Now the kids are liking it.” Then, when Master of None came out, she was like, “The kids love Master of None. Season 2, I said I was mad at them: They came in tired because they watched the whole show the night before.”

How are you feeling about #AsianAugust?

I couldn’t be more excited. I’m really happy for all the success: Everyone on Crazy Rich Asians, and then John [Cho]’s movie Searching. I’m friends with Constance [Wu] and Jon Chu and a lot of those people, and it’s staggering, it’s unbelievable. I’m excited for all the opportunities it’s gonna open up for Asian Americans all over the industry.

I’m happy that we got Crazy Rich Asians, but that’s one movie over 25 years. [Loud noise.]

Sorry.

Whoa, what was that?

That was my dog.

There’s way more movies starring dogs than there are starring Asian Americans. They got Air Bud, Beethoven, Cats and Dogs, Marley and Me, Homeward Bound. Don’t even get me started on the animated ones. We have one movie in the last 25 years, so we’ve got to at least catch up to dogs.

So: Forever, your new show, is a little weird.

It’s very weird. One of the weirdest things I’ve ever worked on.

It’s not until the third episode that you get a sense of what the show is actually about. What led you and your co-creator Matt Hubbard to structure it in this way? And were you guys afraid the audience might not follow you all the way?

That was one of the most exciting things about the show to us: the irregular, superweird, strange pacing. A lot of times when you’re doing television, the lesson they tell you is: You gotta let the audience know what’s going on in Minute 1. That’s why you get teens who are like, “How are you today, sis?” “I’m doing good, bro!”; you need to [telegraph] all the relationships immediately. There’s a place for that, but that’s not what we wanted to do.

One of the freedoms and luxuries Amazon gave us was to pace the show in this unusual way. Maybe this is just us writers being excited about doing something different, but we loved the idea that someone could watch the first episode, get thrown a huge curveball at the last shot, watch Episode 2, think it’s an entirely different show for an episode, then get thrown another curveball, and then start Episode 3 not knowing what the hell is going on. That was really exciting for us.

In fact, the show keeps changing gears later in the season. There are other episodes that are complete digressions and tonal shifts. All of that was very scary, very risky. And also, by the same token, is what excited us.

Let’s talk about the departure from the departure from the departure. There’s a later episode with Hong Chau and Jason Mitchell, where we see the slow progression of their characters’ relationship. A lot of the projects that you have worked on are really romantic: Parks and Rec, which features one of the best couples in all of sitcom history, and, of course, Master of None. As a writer and director, what are the choices you make in order to convey how a couple is truly in love or destined for each other?

There’s generally an essential optimism or warmth in a lot of what I’ve worked on. That’s just my tendency as a human being; I like depicting real moments of human connection. There’re a few inspirations for that episode: Richard Linklater’s Before Sunrise trilogy, Éric Rohmer’s The Green Ray and some of his other work, [Billy Wilder’s] Love in the Afternoon. But you want to show the specificities of the characters. And the more specific you get between these two human beings, the more affecting the connection can become. So, to me, it really is about naturalism and some semblance of realism. As much as possible, we try to draw on the personal experience [of the writers].

I really like the detail that Andre, Jason Mitchell’s character, is from Monterey Park, which is a very, very Asian suburb in Los Angeles. That was inspired by our location manager, Manny Padilla, who is of Mexican descent and grew up in Monterey Park. He would tell me, “All my friends were Asian.” It was a very specific, interesting fact about him, so I put that in the show.

Since the show stars Maya Rudolph and Fred Armisen, who are multiracial actors, do you think of Forever as a show about people of color? Where do you feel like race plays a role in this show, if any?

It’s so funny, we didn’t even really think about. I always thought about them as two really funny people. I’m glad that they’re two people of color, but in this show, [race isn’t] really mentioned as much, [except] in the [Mitchell and Chau] episode. It may come up in future seasons, if we get to do them. But it was kind of nice to not put a finger on it after having done a show [Master of None] where we did talk about it a little bit.

Can you talk a little bit about the unique montage that opens the show?

That was an idea we had early on. We wanted something that was able to convey both the ups and downs and the length of their relationship. We wanted to put you inside both of their heads, and then especially Maya’s head at the end. I’m really happy with what we ended up with. To me, it conveys the tone of the show in a specific way.

And I really loved the music. It’s the song “It Never Entered My Mind” by Miles Davis that our music supervisor Zach Cowie found long before we shot. So when we were shooting it, I would play it in every setup.

We shot maybe 50 or 60 setups for that one montage. One of my favorite things about the montage is how delightful Fred and Maya’s performances are, because you’re starting this [show] with four minutes of essentially silent theater. And it really is about the small looks on their faces. It’s about Fred’s look when he’s surprised at his surprise birthday party, and then when Maya spits in the sink. And it’s about Maya’s ennui at the end of the montage and [the camera] pushing in on her face. It’s amazing how much can come across when you are asked as an audience member to pay attention and just focus and pick up on those small details.

TRIVIUM CHINA

Sino-Japanese ties keep warming

Frosty relations with Japan have shown marked improvement in recent months.

The latest sign of warming came on Wednesday, when Xi Jinping met with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on the sidelines of the Eastern Economic Forum in Vladisvostok.

Xi was positive (Xinhua):

“'China-Japan relations have entered the right track and are facing an important opportunity for improvement,' Xi said.”Abe was similarly upbeat (Asahi Shimbun):“’The horizon for cooperation between Japan and China has widened as exchanges and dialogue over a large number of areas have become much more active…,’ Abe said.”Xi said the Belt and Road offers opportunities to deepen ties (Xinhua):"The Belt and Road Initiative has provided a new platform and experimental field for China and Japan to deepen their mutually beneficial cooperation.”But don’t get too excited. Relations remain far from perfect (Xinhua):“'The Japanese side in particular needs to properly address sensitive issues such as issues relating to history and Taiwan,' [Xi said].”

Up next is an official visit from Abe to China, probably next month. That would be the first visit by a Japanese prime minister since 2011.

The bigger picture: Both countries are reassessing their foreign policies in light of the Trump presidency.

          A12 Bionic da Apple é o primeiro chip comercial de 7 nanômetros      Cache   Translate Page      

A Apple apresentou no seu evento desta quarta-feira (12) o SoC parrudo que deve colocar para funcionar a nova linha de iPhones. Contendo 6,9 bilhões de transistores, o A12 Bionic carrega ainda o título de primeiro chip comercial de 7 nanômetros disponível ao público — vale lembrar que a Huawei também anunciou um modelo semelhante, o Kirin 980, previsto para rechear o flagship Mate 20 e também o Magic 2, da submarca Honor.

O componente é fruto da pareceria da Maçã e da Huawei com a Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) e representa um upgrade considerável em relação ao modelo anterior. O A12 Bionic traz dois “núcleos de desempenho” e quatro “núcleos de eficiência”; enquanto as unidades de desempenho garantem uma velocidade 15% maior, as de eficiência devem representar um gasto de energia 40% menor. Tomados isoladamente, os núcleos de eficiência consomem 50% menos energia do que o A11 Bionic.

Além disso, em contrapartida aos dois núcleos neurais do A11, o A12 Bionic possui uma versão com oito núcleos Neural Engine, o que representa uma capacidade para até 5 trilhões de operações por segundo – processamento de sobra mesmo para os aplicativos mais pesados.

Os novos modelos de iPhone Xs e Xs Max devem ter pré-venda iniciada no dia 21 de setembro, com os envios iniciando a partir de 28 de setembro. Já o iPhone XR poderá ser reservado a partir de 19 de outubro, com envios previstos para iniciar no dia 26 de outubro.


          Rumor | Intel teria recorrido à TSMC para produção de chips de 14 nm      Cache   Translate Page      

A Intel parece estar tendo dificuldades em atender à alta e crescente demanda de chips de 14nm, pois segundo fontes da indústria disseram ao DigiTimes, a empresa estaria com planos para terceirizar a produção de semicondutores para a Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC).

Conforme o que foi dito, a Intel quer priorizar a confecção de produtos de alta margem, em grande parte compostos de chips direcionados a servidores e chipsets, ao passo que uma parcela da produção de chipsets H310 e "outros modelos da série 300" seria encaminhada para a TSMC.

Ainda conforme as fontes, a Intel optou por esta estratégia para lidar com uma demanda que foi além dos 50% que a fabricante conseguiria produzir, sendo a terceirização a saída mais óbvia e viável para a fabricante de chips.

Alguns analistas de mercado acreditam que a capacidade apertada de fornecimento de chips de 14nm estaria relacionada ao atraso com os avanços da tecnologia de 10nm. Originalmente, a Intel estaria com planos para iniciar a produção em massa dos processadores Cannon Lake em 2016, no entanto, isso ainda não se tornou realidade devido a barreiras técnicas e financeiras. Com isso, espera-se que os chips de 10nm não fiquem prontos antes do quarto trimestre de 2019.

Após a disseminação destas informações, a Intel se pronunciou em comunicado ao site Tom's Hardware, apesar de não ter negado nem confirmado a veracidade das informações, a empresa garantiu que está ampliando os seus investimentos no processo de 14nm para atender à demanda do mercado.

A TSCM é atualmente uma das fornecedoras de semicondutores mais relevante do mercado, com fortes parcerias com a AMD, mais recentemente envolvida na confecção de chips de 7nm para a empresa, e também com a Apple, uma vez que a produção da nova geração de iPhones será assumida em grande parte pela companhia taiwanesa.

          Competition fuels Eastern Washington football brothers Nsimba Webster, Nzuzi Webster      Cache   Translate Page      

As friends and family from her native Democratic Republic of the Congo sipped drinks and socialized at a wedding reception Saturday near Oakland, California, Batala Webster sat in a nearby chair, her eyes locked onto a live video feed.

Her twin sons, Eastern Washington football players Nsimba and Nzuzi Webster, were zipping across her cellphone’s screen, helping the Eagles establish a swift 14-0 lead at Northern Arizona.

An elated Batala jumped to her feet and screamed as Nsimba – a wide receiver born 2 minutes before his cornerback brother – scorched the Lumberjacks’ secondary on a 62-yard touchdown connection on EWU’s second drive.

The joy was familiar, but the circumstances were different for the mother of six. After nearly 20 years of watching the inseparable siblings team up in myriad sports, this is likely their final year wearing the same jersey.

She and her husband, Marcus Webster, are relishing every moment.

“It was my wish in life to have twins” said Batala, who will make the trip to Cheney next week when EWU plays Cal Poly. “I am very proud of them. They’re very good boys who always wanted to play together.”

Batala was a fleet-footed athlete, she said, while growing up in Kinshasa. She migrated to America in 1992 in pursuit of better job opportunities, but had a tenuous grasp of the English language.

Now, her English is as strong as her Congalese accent. She worked 16 years at Bank of America, but has since returned to school. Her husband, a career phone technician and boxing enthusiast from the Bay Area, helped raise their six children in Antioch, a bedroom community of Oakland.

When the couple learned they were having twins in 1995, they adhered to a longtime tradition from Batela’s native Bakango Tribe when naming the boys.

“With twins, Nsimba is the name of the first born and Nzuzi is the name of the second born,” said Nsimba, the former high school quarterback who has blossomed into one of the most electric wide receivers at the FCS level.

Nsimba ranks third in the country in receiving through two games, totaling 388 yards and four touchdowns. Nzuzi, a four-year starter, has boosted a defense that’s surrendering just 19 points a game.

Five years after former EWU star running back and current Buffalo Bills captain Taiwan Jones helped the brothers choose the Cheney school – Jones and the Websters prepped at the same high school, Deer Valley High – they’re looking to leave their mark.

“It’s the last ride. We have to go out with a bang,” Nzuzi said. “We want to make something historical and enjoy our time together.”

Both were recruited to EWU as athletes who later settled into their respective positions. Nsimba, whose lone Division I offer as a quarterback came from Sacramento State, is now the primary target in the Eagles’ pass-happy offense after waiting in the wings behind such talents as Cooper Kupp and Kendrick Bourne, both NFL receivers.

Nzuzi, a two-way star in high school who did most of his damage at safety, often locked up against his brother in practice the last three years when Nsimba was an outside receiver.

Some of those battles were more heated than others.

“We’re brothers, so of course we’re going to talk a little mess to each other,” Nzuzi said. “You have to watch out for his speed. Going against him was fun, just competing with him.”

The two were both combo guards on Deer Valley High’s basketball team that featured Marcus Lee, now of the Miami Heat. At 5-foot-10, both Websters said they recorded in-game dunks.

“Nzuzi double-dribbled on his dunk,” Nsimba said. “You can find it on YouTube.”

The twins first teamed up as 4-year-old soccer players and their competitive spirit showed early, their mother said.

“They were so fast,” Batala said. “And they did not want to lose. When they lost, they were very sad.”

Not much has changed, EWU head coach Aaron Best said.

“They’re both blue-collar guys and good students,” said Best, who shares a Jan. 27 birthday with the Websters. “They’re both personable and highly competitive.”

But who is more competitive?

“Nzuzi is the more mellow of the two,” Best said. “Nsimba … he isn’t quite as mellow.”

The Websters, who are expected to earn communications degrees before the end of the year, say they’ve recently found a more quiet competitive outlet: chess.

Nzuzi introduced his brother to the game and now both use the game to challenge themselves mentally.

“He was always beating me, so I’ve dug down and really tried to get better,” Nsimba said. “It teaches you a lot. How to think ahead and prepare. Now when we play, we really get after each other.”

Batala believes competition is part of her sons’ bond, something she hopes to continues well after college.

“God has big plans for them,” said Batala, who said she often texts her sons Bible verses. “And no matter what those plans are, they will be close and do good things.”

【9月13日 CNS】香港証券取引所へのIPO(株式新規上場)を予定している中国の火鍋チェーン、海底撈国際(Haidilao)は12日、株式公募を始めた。17日までの予定。


 価格設定幅は1株当たり14.8~17.8香港ドル(約210~253円)とし、26日に香港証券取引所で上場する計画だ。11日に香港で開かれた記者会見で明らかにされた。(c)CNS/JCM/AFPBB News

【9月13日 AFP】札幌市が2026年の冬季五輪の招致を断念し、鉄道網が改良される30年大会開催を目指すことが13日、明らかになった。


 札幌市側が、スイス・ローザンヌ(Lausanne)で国際オリンピック委員会(IOC)のトーマス・バッハ(Thomas Bach)会長を訪ね、26年大会の立候補を辞退について「すぐに」伝える見込みとの報道を受け、札幌市職員はAFPの取材に対し、日本オリンピック委員会(JOC)や地元当局、ビジネスリーダーの大多数が「30年大会の招致に切り替えることが望ましい」と考えているとコメントした。


 札幌市の町田隆敏(Takatoshi Machida)副市長とJOCの竹田恒和(Tsunekazu Takeda)会長がバッハ氏と会談する予定で、先日札幌市近郊で発生し、41人の死者を出した巨大地震についても議論するという。


 男性職員は、立候補を30年大会に切り替える可能性について「話し合うかは分からない」としつつ、30年までに新幹線が札幌市まで延伸され、より優れた鉄道網が完成するということも付け加えた。


 五輪の開催地はしばらくアジアの都市で独占されており、26年の冬季大会はアジア以外で行われるかもしれないという意見は確かにあった。今年の冬季五輪は韓国の平昌(Pyeongchang)で行われ、20年夏季五輪は東京で、そして22年冬季五輪は中国・北京で行われる。


 26年大会の開催には、カナダのカルガリー(Calgary)やスウェーデンのストックホルムなどが名乗りを上げている。同大会の開催地は、来年9月にイタリア・ミラノ(Milan)で発表される。


 また、30年大会には米国のデンバー(Denver)とソルトレークシティー(Salt Lake City)が開催に興味の声を上げている。(c)AFP

【9月13日 AFPBB News】障害のある作家たちによるグループ展「ミュージアム・オブ・トゥギャザー サーカス(MUSEUM OF TOGETHER CIRCUS)」が13日、東京の渋谷ヒカリエ(Shibuya Hikarie)で開幕した。出展作家7人による絵画や刺しゅうなどの作品が動物のような形をした棚に陳列され、サーカス小屋を思わせるにぎやかさだ。開幕に先立ち、12日に内覧会が行われた。


 同展は、多様性をテーマにした2020年開催予定の展覧会「日本財団 DIVERSITY IN THE ARTS 2020」の幕開けイベントとしての役割もある。会場には、参加アーティストの作品を基にして制作した「顔はめパネル」など、来場者もアートを楽しめるしかけが随所にある。


 刺しゅう作品を出展した滋賀県在住の清水千秋(Chiaki Shimizu)さん(51)は、新作3点を披露。好きなアーティスト「三代目J Soul Brothers」が踊る様子を表現した作品には、約5か月間を費やした。絵筆で塗りつぶすように糸で彩色する根気のいる作業に、針で指を刺すこともしばしばあるというが、「なめれば治る」とあっけらかんと語る。来場者には、「ありがとう」と何度も声をかけていた。


 期間中は、クヌギの葉を折り紙のように使って動物を折った作品を出展している渡邊義紘(Yoshihiro Watanabe)さんによる切り絵のデモンストレーションのほか、トークショーなどが予定されている。17日まで。(c)AFPBB News

【9月13日 AFP】米ミズーリ州で先週末、自宅近くのツリーハウスで遊んでいた少年(10)がはしごから転落し、バーベキュー用の金串が頭部をほぼ貫通するけがを負う事故があった。しかし、脳への損傷は運よく免れ、少年は驚くべき回復を見せている。


 医師団が「100万人に1人」の事故だと指摘するゼイビア・カニンガム(Xavier Cunningham)君の災難は、8日午後に起きた。米メディアによると、ハチの群れに襲われてツリーハウスから落ちたという。もし転落した場所が数センチずれていたら、命を落としていたかもしれない事故だった。


 ゼイビア君は9日、隣接するカンザス州の病院で、左の頬から首の後ろまで突き刺さり、後頭部へ貫通する寸前で止まった長い金串を除去する手術を受けた。順調な回復を見せているという。


 大学病院の神経外科医、コージ・エバーソール(Koji Ebersole)氏は、地元紙カンザスシティー・スター(Kansas City Star)に、金串は「目、脳、脊髄の全てをそれて」刺さっていたと語った。「顔面から後頭部まで5~6インチ(約13~15センチ)もの物体が突き抜けたのに、これらの部位を傷つけなかったというのは、100万人に1人の症例だ」


 エバーソール医師によれば、金串が刺さった部位の周囲には重要な血管が多かったが、大きな出血はなかったため、翌朝まで時間をかけて慎重に手術の準備を進めることができた。手術には約100人の医療関係者が参加したという。(c)AFP/Nova SAFO

国慶節前に中国の観光施設が値下げラッシュ 一部施設は無料化も

【9月13日 CNS】中国では10月の大型連休、国慶節を控え、多くの観光施設が入場料の値下げを発表している。その中には知名度の高い施設も含まれ、無料にしたところもある。入場料を値下げしたら、その観光施設はどうやって稼ぐのだろうか。


 国家発展改革委員会によると、8月末時点で21省が157観光施設の値下げもしくは無料化を発表した。今後、国慶節までにさらに157施設が加わる予定。


  観光施設の入場料の高さは、これまで観光経済成長の足かせとされてきた。中国政府も、広域観光の促進に向け、国有観光施設の入場料の値下げを求めていた。

 中国観光研究院産業所の呉麗雲副研究員は、「高すぎる入場料は、観光客の選択の権利を奪っている。観光施設の公共性も発揮できない。入場料の値下げでより多くの観光客が恩恵を受けるだろう」と話した。


 しかし、入場料で遺跡などの修復や施設の管理を行っている観光施設からすれば、値下げは経営上の大きな圧力となる。


 呉副研究員は「観光施設は入場料でなく、消費者により多様なレジャーやサービス、商品を提供することが求められる」と述べた。


 故宮博物院(The Palace Museum)は、芸術関連商品の売り上げが2017年に10億元(約160億円)に達し、年間の入場料収入にほぼ並んでおり、他施設でも同様の取り組みが求められそうだ。(c)CNS/JCM/AFPBB News

 明治から大正にかけて東京湾に作られた海上要塞(ようさい)「第二海堡(かいほう)」への上陸観光が始まったのにちなみ、神奈川県横須賀市の四つの飲食店が「横須賀海堡丼」の提供を始める。東京湾の地魚をふんだんに使い、海の幸を楽しんでもらう狙いだ。


 第二海堡はこれまで立ち入りが禁止されていたが、今月から試験的な上陸観光が始まった。横須賀市は、新たな観光の目玉にすることを目指している。


東京湾は豊かな漁場でもある。このため市は、市内の飲食店に、東京湾の魚を使って海堡をイメージした「横須賀海堡丼」の提供を依頼。4店舗が応えた。


 「地魚料理なぶら」は東京湾の根魚を中心に、島の形をイメージして豪快に姿作りを盛り付けた。「磯料理・旅館やまに」はサザエで砲台を、「かねよ食堂」は巻きずしで大砲をイメージした。「セントラルホテル」は、東京湾のアナゴを丼に丸ごと1本盛り付けた。


 海堡付近は岩場で、カサゴやメバルといった根魚が多くいるという。なぶらの佐藤雅一店長は「根魚を中心に、8割以上は横須賀産を使いたい」と話した。


 4店が15日から順次提供を始める。1食1650~2千円(税別)で、予約が必要な場合も。店の場所や連絡先は横須賀市観光課(046・822・9672)へ

*横須賀は人口が減少している地域で、観光資源や海の幸を基本として、頑張っています。ぜひ出かけて美味しい海の幸を堪能してください。きっと満足できますよ!

【9月12日 AFP】ブラジルで開かれている国際捕鯨委員会(IWC)総会は11日、主に南米諸国が求めている南大西洋にクジラの禁漁区(サンクチュアリ)を設定する案を、日本などの捕鯨支持国の反対によって否決した。この案をめぐっては20年近くにわたって毎年採決が行われており、IWC加盟国間の分裂が深まっている。



  採決結果は賛成39か国、反対25か国、棄権数か国だった。IWCの規則で可決には出席国の4分の3の賛成が必要とされていることから否決された。反対票を投じたのは捕鯨支持国の日本や商業捕鯨を行っているアイスランドとノルウェー、ロシアなど。

 ブラジルのエジソン・ドゥアルテ(Edson Duarte)環境相は失望をあらわにし、引き続き世界各国に支持を求めていく意向を示した。


 総会に出席した環境団体も、採決結果に大きな失望を示した。


 日本はIWC総会での決議に必要な賛成国の数について、現行の4分の3から過半数への緩和を求めている。


 南大西洋のクジラ禁漁区案は、ブラジル、アルゼンチン、ガボン、南アフリカ、ウルグアイの主導で1998年に初めて話し合われ、2001年以来、毎回採決されている。

【9月12日 AFP】女子テニスのスーパースター、セレーナ・ウィリアムス(Serena Williams、米国)の風刺画を掲載し非難の嵐にさらされたオーストラリア・メルボルンの地元紙ヘラルド・サン(Herald Sun)は12日、同日付の紙面トップに問題の風刺画を再び掲載し、人種および性差別的であるとの批判について反論した。


 同紙は10日付の紙面に、大坂なおみ(Naomi Osaka)との全米オープンテニス(US Open Tennis Championships 2018)決勝で怒りを爆発させたセレーナを描いたマーク・ナイト(Mark Knight)氏の風刺画を掲載。


 風刺画にはたくましい体格で分厚い唇をしたセレーナが試合中におしゃぶりを吐き出し、跳びはねながら壊れたラケットを踏みつけている姿が描かれており、人種差別および性差別的であると世界中から非難の声が上がった。


 しかし同紙は12日付の紙面で、「マーク・ナイトに関する自称検閲官たちの思い通りになれば、新しいポリティカリー・コレクト(政治的・社会的に公正)な生活は本当に退屈で仕方のないものになる」と批判に反論。


 また、ナイト氏も同紙ウェブサイトで自身の風刺画に対する非難について「世界が狂ってしまった」兆候だと指摘し、「セレーナの風刺画は彼女の態度に関するものであって、人種に関するものではない」と主張した。


 ナイト氏によると自身のツイッター(Twitter)に投稿した風刺画に関するツイートには2万2000件以上のコメントが舞い込んだが、そのほとんどが批判的な内容で、同氏は家族や友人たちを守るためにアカウントを閉鎖したという。(c)AFP

【9月12日 AFP】米西部オレゴン州で昨年、実の娘に性的暴行を加えた罪で禁錮50年を言い渡された男性が、見せしめに殺したとされていたラブラドルレトリバーが生きていることが判明したため、晴れて自由の身になった。10日、事件の打ち切りが決まった。


 男性は配管職人のジョシュア・ホーナー(Joshua Horner)さん(42)。2017年4月、未成年者に対する性的暴行罪で陪審から非全員一致ながら有罪評決を受けた。


 娘は公判で、ホーナーさんから警察に通報すればペットたちに危害を加えると脅され、ホーナー氏が見せしめとして愛犬のルーシー(Lucy)を目の前で射殺したと主張した。


 しかし、ホーナーさんの代理として事件を再調査していた非営利団体(NPO)オレゴン・イノセンス・プロジェクト(Oregon Innocence Project)によって、ルーシーがオレゴン州ポートランド(Portland)の北西に位置する町ギアハート(Gearhart)で新たな飼い主に飼われていることが分かった。際だった特徴からルーシーと確認されたという。


 ホーナーさんは、娘はうその証言をしているとし、ルーシーに危害を加えていないので、ルーシーさえ見つかれば自身の無罪が証明できると主張していた。


 地区検察局は事件を打ち切りを求める文書を裁判所に提出した。それによると、ルーシーの発見後、娘は自身の宣誓証言についての供述を拒んでいるという。


 上訴審では、被告側にルーシーと無関係であることを示す証拠の提出が認められていなかったとして、下級審の判決を破棄し、審理を差し戻した。これを受けてホーナーさんは8月に拘置所から釈放され、再審理を待っていた。


 ホーナー氏は10日、判事が事件打ち切りを決めた後、妻のケリー(Kelli)さんと共に法廷を後にする際、「ケリーと私はすぐにでも人生を立て直せる」と喜んだ。(c)AFP

名探偵コナンはパクリだ 訴えたコメディアンに町の奇策は?

 「『パクリ』の賠償金3兆円を支払え」。人気漫画「名探偵コナン」をめぐり、米側からこんな要求がふっかけられた。矛先は作者の青山剛昌さんの生誕の地で「コナンの町」として知られる鳥取県北栄町。果たして、その結末は――。


 「世界中で『コナン』とグーグル検索すれば俺が最初にヒットするのに、日本ではアニメキャラが最初に出てくる。なぜなんだ」


 発端は8月21日(米国時間20日)。米国の人気コメディアン、コナン・オブライエンさんが自身のトーク番組「コナン」で、こうまくしたて、「パクリだ」と訴えたことだ。北栄町が路上に名探偵コナンのキャラクターのオブジェを設置していることにも触れ、不利益を被ったとして町に3兆円を払うよう求めた。


 この発言を米国の友人から聞かされた米出身の同町教育総務課職員、ハリス・クリストファーさん(39)が「ジョークにはジョークで」と松本昭夫町長に提案。8月24日、松本町長がフェイスブックに英語で「お金が欲しければ町に来て」と、手招きする動画を投稿した。この動画を番組で取り上げたオブライエンさんは「取りに行く」と応酬し、今月6日に北栄町を訪れた。


 町長室でオブライエンさんは松本町長から「約束の品」としてアタッシェケースを手渡された。中には町特産の「大栄スイカ」の種が1粒だけ。スイカからは種1千粒が取れるため、1粒が1年後には1千粒に、2年後には100万粒となり、4年後には1兆粒になる。「それらを収穫して売れば3兆円を超える」と松本町長。特産品の宣伝に利用された格好だが、オブライエンさんは「町長は頭が良いね」とどこか満足げ。


 その後「コナン駅」の愛称を持つ同町のJR由良駅へ。今回のやりとりをSNS上で知り、集まったファンらを前に、日本語で「北栄町に来られて光栄です。約束通りハンバーガーを届けに来ました」と語りかけると歓声が上がった。


 松本町長が事前にフェイスブックで「来る時に1万5千個のハンバーガーを持って来てください。北栄町民全員に配ります」と要求。話題を知った東京の食品会社が1千食分を無償提供していた。オブライエンさん自らハンバーグを焼いて町民らに振る舞い、町観光大使になることも承諾。滞在時間は6時間ほどだったが、「みんなフレンドリーで良い関係を築けた」と、ご機嫌の様子で鳥取砂丘コナン空港鳥取空港)から飛び立った。


 北栄町広報担当の小前裕之さん(58)は「最初はSNSでやりとりできれば、くらいに思っていましたが、本当に来てくれるとは。これもコナンのおかげ」と話す。今回の様子は、米国のテレビ番組でも放送されるとみられる。

Ya sea con el fin o no de promocionar más aún el lanzamiento de las ediciones 'Pokémon: Let's GO: Pikachu y Let's GO Eevee', sobre las que hemos podido ver hoy un nuevo tráiler, lo cierto y verdad es que Nintendo y Niantic están aprovechando 'Pokémon GO' para realizar de vez en cuando eventos dedicados a la primera generación de la saga.

El último de ellos permitirá a todo el mundo completar por fin la Pokédex de Kanto. Hasta finales de septiembre en los huevos de siete kilómetros, aquellos que se obtienen con los regalos de los amigos, podrán contener Pokémon regionales de los diferentes continentes del mundo, lo que permitirá a los usuarios conseguir a Kangaskhan, Tauros, Mr. Mime y Farfetch'd.

Pokemon Go Regionales

La otra gran novedad afecta a las Incursiones Legendarias. Desde el 13 al 20 de septiembre los Pájaros Legendarios, es decir, Articuno, Zapdos y Moltres, volverán a aparecer. No obstante, lo mejor de todo es que del 20 de septiembre al 23 de octubre aparecerá Mewtwo en estas Incursiones, dejando de lado, al menos temporalmente, la necesidad de disponer de un pase de Incursión EX.

Para rematar la jugada, hasta el 30 de septiembre todos los Pokémon de la primera generación aparecerán con más frecuencia de lo normal por todas partes, así que ya va siendo hora de atrapar a los 151 primeros Pokémon de una vez por todas. Y no os olvidéis que el 22 de septiembre se celebrará el nuevo Día de la Comunidad de 'Pokémon GO' y para esta ocasión el elegido ha sido Chikorita.

          Chen on MacKinnon & Equality Theory      Cache   Translate Page      
Chao-Ju Chen (National Taiwan University) has posted Catharine A. Mackinnon and Equality Theory (Robin West and Cynthia Bowman eds, Research Handbook on Feminist Jurisprudence (2018, Edward Elgar), Forthcoming) on SSRN.  Here is the abstract: This chapter discusses Catharine A. MacKinnon’s theory of sex equality, its application as well as major strands of criticism. Beginning with a radical critique of liberal legalism, feminism and Marxism, MacKinnon conceived a hierarchy-centered theory of substantive equality, shifting the paradigm of equality thinking from questions of sameness and difference to the power structure of dominance and subordination. Drawing on feminist consciousness raising as method, her theory sees gender as an inequality and sexuality as the linchpin of gender inequality. It is also an engaged theory producing sex equality laws to address women’s sexual violations: sexual harassment as a legal injury and a form of sex…

Verdi Heroines

Après les enregistrements de Marlis Petersen (SM 274 / Diapason d'or) et de Vesselina Kasarova (SM 263), une troisième "grande dame du chant" fait son entrée sur Solo Musica qui fait de ce label le leader de l'art lyrique en Allemagne.

Elena Mosuc: Soprano roumaine, elle mène ses études musicales dans son pays natal et les complète en 2009 avec un doctorat en musicologie sur le thème de La folie dans l'opéra italien durant la première moitié du XIXe siècle. Dès ses débuts, sa carrière est étroitement liée à l'Opéra de Zurich où elle a interprété de nombreux rôles, parmi lesquels la Reine de la Nuit (chantée 250 fois dans le monde entier). Ses autres rôles emblématiques sont Gilda, Violetta, Lucia, Mimì, Marguerite, Donna Anna, Konstanze, Zerbinetta, Luisa Miller, Olympia, Antonia, Giulietta, Stella, Norma, Nedda, Lucrezia Borgia, Anna Bolena, Maria Stuarda et Desdemona.

Elena Mosuc est fréquemment l'invitée des principaux opéras et festivals de musique classique en Europe (à Barcelone, Berlin, Hambourg, Munich, Vienne, Salzbourg, Paris, Londres, Milan, Rome, Venise, Bruxelles, Amsterdam, Bilbao et aux Arènes de Vérone), comme aux États-Unis (le Metropolitan de New York et l’Opéra de Dallas), au Japon, en Chine, Taiwan et en Corée du Sud. Elle chante sous la direction de chefs tels Gergiev, Dudamel, Philippe Jordan, ou encore Dohnanyi et Maazel.



          Is Taiwan racist?      Cache   Translate Page      

Christians had their crusades, but not anymore, so they are not a danger in regards this area and they are currently at a much lower danger level than Muslims. Muslims on the other hand had always been dangerous because their core of religion is deadly violent. Is today´s moderate Muslims who have deviated greatly from the original Muslims, who spreaded quickly due to its violent approach. The Koran explains the Life of the Prohet Mahoma (if he would have been killed just right after birth the world would be a much better place) and his trips to Medina and the Meca. In the Meca he talked about peace, but in Medina he talked about violence as a way to convert infidels. Aside of this in practical world today you can see what happens around the world in Muslim communities, they either hate each other (Shias and Sunies) or hate Jews, Christians, Wetern World, etc… They are just haters by Nature.
As for what you say about migrants paying more taxes and getting more services, this might well be true in Taiwan and other racist nationalist countries like much of Asia and of course Muslim countries, but not in western countries. There the rich pays more and uses less and the migrants get free salaries, free housing, free doctors free food and simply dont pay taxes.

I don’t think that is a mistranslation, per se. They’re probably just copying this:

On the idea of migrants being unwelcome because ‘they change the character of the society’, I would characterise that as the backwash you get from globalisation. Many expect it to be a one way street, where western civilising forces change less developed countries: yay! Vaccines, electricity, manufacturing, paved roads, fork and knives, books, English / French, methodologies. Well, there is a feedback. That feedback mechanism has underpinned development of knowledge, writing and science. The changing character in both directions is necessary and inevitable. The chinese lost the plot ages ago after Zheng He when the emperor decided to close off their society to outside influence. That move retarded the country’s development for ages. Its loss was Europe’s gain.

If I may, religions of all sorts have started upheaval and wars before. The Crusades were a Christian initiative. Religious conflict did not start with Islam. And the current conflict between ‘western civilisation’ and Islam likely has origins in some colonial misadventures, whose origins quite likely lie in western countries. If I recall correctly, the religious angle was only brought into play as a way of uniting people to an anti-western cause. A case of chickens coming home to roost perhaps? Majority of muslims acknowledge there are hardliners and fanatics (each religion has its zealots). Perhaps this is better off in a thread of its own?

On the subject of immigration, its an economic reality that industries wax and wane, people have always migrated according to seasons, economic cycles and climate changes. Laws put in place to create national borders as if those economic realities do not exist. What is then deemed legal is simply a reflection of the interests of those with the power to legislate and enforce. As such, laws have no moral force of right and wrong, only reflect might.

The truth is most countries that get migrants need the skills and value brought by those migrants. Distasteful as the reality might be to nationalists. Migrants typically bring more than they take out (paying more taxes and having lower access to public services, even in countries where some savvy migrants scam the system). They plug in critical skills shortages, even the so-called ‘lowskilled’, which improves the quality of life for those who see themselves as autochtons (eg household help brought to take care of the elderly, miners, factory and farm workers).

The interesting thing about human beings is at some deep-seated sober level, we all recognise each other’s humanity. The only way we can exploit each other and still retain our sanity, is by going partially mad: we have to assume the cognitive dissonance that makes us realise the value other people can contribute, and then straight away go to great lengths to create the fiction of the ‘other’, who is a subhuman and only fit to serve our whims and fancies. This is where all those linguistic gymanstics come into play. Words give effect to our comfort, and assuage our conscience: but that one is really different.

          Quitting before contract ends      Cache   Translate Page      

Usually an adjudicator would apply a “fair and reasonable test” according to the LSA employment under one year only requires 10 days notice, ergo; regardless of the nature of the contract (fixed non-fixed) it wouldn’t pass the fairness test. Fixed term contracts don’t really apply for any term over 6 months in Taiwan. If you wanted to get around this system you would need to set you contracts for 6 months then your staff would have to have one month unpaid off work and come back on a new six month contract. This (theoretically) would allow you to hire and fire without consequence (having to pay severance) … At the end of the day an employee is an employee and in the eye of Taiwan LSA most of the contracts signed in the buxiban industry between the company and foreign employee aren’t worth the paper they’re written on… :confused:#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000
