          SPOILER: Freedom Caucus Fuckwit Mark Meadows Just Makin' Up Shit About Peter Strzok's Texts      Cache   Translate Page      


If it is a day, House Republicans are doing some propaganda bullshit in their Kremlin-inspired war on America's Justice Department, in service of the unindicted co-conspirator traitor in the White House at whose feet they worship and whose taint they are just grateful to sniff.

So hey, North Carolina GOP Rep. Mark Meadows of the House Freedom Caucus, the guy former GOP House Speaker John Boehner once memorably referred to as an "idiot"! What kind of Kremlin-inspired propaganda do you have for us today?


In his next tweet, Meadows fully types out his new TIMELINE for these very important new PETER STRZOK TEXTS which prove STUFF and THINGS about DEEP STATE or WHATEVER THE FUCK HE IS TALKING ABOUT HOLY SHIT WHO EVEN KNOWS WHAT THIS (ALLEGEDLY!) INBRED DUMPSTERFUCK FROM APPALACHIA IS GOING ON ABOUT RIGHT NOW:

So, the new timeline:
4/10/17: Strzok texts Lisa Page wanting to discuss a "media leaking strategy."
4/12/17: Strzok texts Lisa Page that two articles are coming about "her namesake" (Carter Page)
4/22/17: Strzok texts Page: "article is out!" and "Well done, Page"

Case closed, shut the door on the Russia investigation probably!

In case you haven't gleaned this so far, there is a new chapter in House Republicans' bizarre obsession with the text messages of recently fired FBI investigator (and veritable fucking hero at investigating Russians) Peter Strzok, who worked on the early stages of the counterintel investigation into the Trump campaign's ties to Russia. Like everything else House Republicans have come up with so far -- RELEASE THE MEMO! BRUCE OHR! LET'S SMELL OUR OWN FARTS AND SEE IF WE FIND A DEEP STATE CONSPIRACY! -- it is unmitigated bullshit meant to waste your time and obstruct justice.

In the letter Meadows sent to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein (attached to the tweet above), the congressman has a squirrel-fucking conniption over a newly discovered April 2017 text from Peter Strzok to Lisa Page, the FBI lawyer Strzok at one point was doing affair sexes with, which mentions a "media leaking strategy." In another text to Page, Strzok says heads up, two articles are coming out about "her namesake," which would be Carter Page, the Trump campaign's very stupidest Russian intelligence asset, who's been on the radar as a particularly stupid Russian intelligence asset for YEARS. The Washington Post had broken news about the FISA warrants on Carter Page the day before. Finally, ten days later, there is a text where Strzok tells (Lisa) Page, "article is out!" and "Well done, Page."

(By the way, there is much stupid hullabaloo this week about Trump maybe declassifying ALL the Carter Page FISA documents, because Mark Meadows and Donald Trump really like to own goal themselves.)

In Meadows's very smart brain, these new tweets, originally reported by bona fide Hannity idiot Sara Carter, mean Peter Strzok and Lisa Page were doing INTENTIONAL MEDIA LEAKING to make Carter Page look bad (he's just an innocent Russian spy after all!), and that after it was all over, Peter Strzok patted Lisa Page on the back like "Hey lady I have intercoursed in the past, nice job with the Deep State conspiracy leaks!" Meadows further alleges that a whole passel of other folks were probably leaking to the media to hurt Donald Trump, but he's not sure, so let's have Mark Meadows investigate to see if he can invent a conspiracy theory inside his nasty-ass Carolina vinegar BBQ rectal slit.

Except ... NOPE! Not even a little bit. Meadows acts like he found these three text messages inside a random farm animal at a western North Carolina Tea Party speed dating event, but in point of fact they came from a larger release of documents from the Department of Justice. Could it be helpful to look at the texts in context? THE FUCK YOU SAY!

The truth is that it's much more likely (by which we mean there's almost a 100% chance) these tweets were actually not strategizing about how to leak, but about how to COMBAT leaks. Why? Well, for one thing, going after unauthorized leaks was part of Peter Strzok's job! And as the Washington Post notes, at the time of these texts, Attorney General Jeff Sessions was on a warpath about leaks.

Here is the full text from April 10, 2017:

"I had literally just gone to find this phone to tell you I want to talk to you about media leak strategy with DOJ before you go."

Media leak strategy with DOJ? In a text message to an FBI lawyer from an FBI guy whose job is to go after unauthorized leaks? How fuckin' weird is that! (Not weird.)

But there is even deeper context available! Democratic congressmen Elijah Cummings and Jerrold Nadler, ranking members of the House Oversight and Government Reform and Judiciary Committees, responded with their own statement, which explained more about what was going on that day in April of 2017:

"DoJ getting all political and about to blown (sic) up the media leak regs and turn this into a circus," Strzok wrote.

Then, Strzok expressed concern that some officials were looking to shake up the DOJ's internal leak regulations and suggested consulting with FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and Director James B. Comey to intervene.

Strzok wrote: "if they are going to try to blow up the regs we need to get that to andy and d soonest."

In other words, the Trump administration was caterwauling about leaks, and the career employees who have to implement their shit were discussing how best to do that. Escandalo!

As for the text a week and a half later on April 22, where Strzok says, "Article is out!" and "Well done, Page," does it make sense that he's congratulating Lisa Page a week and a half later on some really good leaking she did a week and a half ago? Well if you're a fucking moron like Mark Meadows, maybe it does. Nadler and Cummings note, though, that the New York Times published a profile on James Comey on April 22, which seems much more likely to be the article Strzok is referring to.

Does Mark Meadows even believe in his own conspiracy theory? According to Roll Call, "A spokesman for Meadows declined to comment on this story," and according to Mother Jones, "Asked Tuesday if Meadows stood by the assertions in his letter, a spokesman for congressman declined to comment." So nah, Meadows probably knows he's being a craven, justice-obstructing shithole.

Of course, this conspiracy theory is all over right-wing media now, which has already turkey basted it up the moron president's ass:

So basically everything is normal! House Republicans are willfully lying about Peter Strzok's text messages -- hey remember that time they were all going apeshit about how Peter Strzok and Lisa Page had a SECRET SOCIETY???? -- and the president is swallowing it whole.

God bless us, everyone!

          Nikki Haley warns of ‘dire’ consequences if Russia and Iran continue attacks on Idlib, Syria      Cache   Translate Page      

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

UN Ambassador Nikki Haley issued a warning to Russia and Iran today, saying that continued attacks on the last opposition stronghold in Idlib, Syria could result in “dire” consequences. From CNN:

During what was the second session on Idlib in four days, Haley told the council that “the world has seen a clear military escalation” this month by Russia and the Syrian regime, whose forces have conducted more than 100 airstrikes, using “barrel bombs, rockets and artillery” in an attempt to retake the last rebel holdout after more than seven years of war…

“If Assad, Russia and Iran continue down the path they are on, the consequences will be dire,” she said.

“I also want to reiterate what I said last week to the Assad regime and anyone else contemplating the use of chemical weapons in Syria,” Haley added. “The United States followed through when we said that we would respond to the use of chemical weapons. We stand by this warning.”

Secretary of Defense James Mattis declined to say Tuesday whether the US would take military action against the Syrian regime should it use chemical weapons, but he did say Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad has “been warned.”

There are said to be around 3 million people in Idlib, with a large percentage of them children. So the concern is that Assad and Russia are going to use the same strategy here they’ve used in other places in Syria, i.e. Russian airstrikes followed by a siege to cut off food and water and, possibly, the use of chemical weapons. Last week President Trump himself warned Russia and Iran not to “recklessly” attack Idlib Province.

But shortly after that tweet the airstrikes began:

And it’s not just the millions of people who could be impacted. A full-scale attack is likely to create another surge of refugees fleeing the country:

As Secretary of State Mike Pompeo noted, Russia pledged to preserve Idlib as a “deescalation zone” and end the war through diplomacy. Yet it now appears poised to throw its planes behind an assault by the government of Bashar al-Assad, also backed by Iran, to capture the territory by force. Moscow cites the presence of an al-Qaeda-linked rebel group, which controls much of Idlib; Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov says it is a “festering abscess” that must be “liquidated.” But the United Nations’ Syria envoy estimates there are only about 10,000 fighters in the extremist group. If they follow their usual modus operandi, the Assad, Iranian and Russian forces will fight them by systematically targeting the civilian population and infrastructure, including food markets, schools and hospitals.

The damage could spread far beyond Syria. A full-scale offensive could send hundreds of thousands of refugees streaming north toward Turkey, where some 3.5 million Syrians already are harbored.

Bottom line, there is a real potential for catastrophe here and Russia and Iran clearly don’t care so long as they can claim victory and prop up their puppet Asssad. If things escalate, and especially if there is another use of chemical weapons, it’s very likely the US will intervene with more than strong words. Here are Nikki Haley’s full remarks.

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

Quit my job

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Life was passing me by

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

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

Quit my job

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

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

I traveled — and started a business

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

Quit my job

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

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

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

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

Quit my job.

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

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

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

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

Quit my job

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

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

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

And this is just the beginning.

SUBHEAD: Never before have irrationality and immorality had such a firm hold on the US government.

By Paul Craig Roberts on 10 September 2018 for PaulCraigRoberts.org -
(https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2018/09/10/armageddon-rides-in-the-balance/)

From (https://www.thenational.ae/world/mena/syria-regime-and-rebels-agree-evacuation-deal-in-southern-damascus-1.725770).

IB Publisher's note: Yes Paul Craig Roberts is a nutcake. He is a Ronald Reagan Republican economist who sees clearly, but through a deeply colored filter. None the less, he does have an inkling of the dichotomy between the "Left" and the "Right". The "Left" with elements of the "Deep State" (intelligence complex, CIA, NSA, State Department, etc) and the "Right" with elements of the "Military-Industrial Complex" (Pentagon, Defense contractors, Mercenary operations, ICE, etc.). Both aspects of our government are hurtling towards a more repressive and garrulous America. As these aggressive and regressive forces gain influence, woe is us. America will conduct more war and experience more repression.] 

For some time I have pointed out the paradox of the American liberal/progressive/left being allied with the CIA, FBI, military/security complex and deep state. Now leftist Ann Garrison has noticed the paradox of this alliance. She concludes that the Left has lost its mind. https://www.globalresearch.ca/we-love-the-cia-or-how-the-left-lost-its-mind/5653450

Indeed, it has.

Out of its hatred of Trump the Left has united with the forces of evil and war that are leading to conflict with Russia. The Left’s hatred of Trump shows that the American Left has totally seperated from the interests of the working class, which elected Trump.

The American Left has abandoned the working class for the group victimizations and hatreds of Identity Politics. As Hillary put it, the working class comprises the “Trump deplorables.” The Democratic Party, like the Republicans, represents the ruling oligarchy.

I have explained that the leftwing lost its bearings when the Soviet Union collapsed and socialism gave way to neoliberal privatizations.

The moral fury of the leftwing movement had to go somewhere, and it found its home in Identity Politics in which the white heterosexual male takes the place of the capitalist, and his victim groups—blacks, women, homosexuals, illegal immigrants—take the place of the working class.

The consequences of the leftwing’s alliance with warmongers and liars is the leftwing’s loss of veracity. The Left has endorsed a CIA orchestration—“Russiagate”—for which there is no known evidence, but which the Left supports as proven truth.

The purpose of “Russiagate” is to prevent President Trump from normalizing relations with Russia. In these times when so many Americans are hard pressed, normal relations could adversely impact the budget and power of the military/security complex by reducing the “Russian threat.”

If there is no real Russian threat, only an orchestrated perceived one, the question arises: why does the military/security complex have a taxpayer-supported annual budget of $1,000 billion dollars?

The presstitutes have kept the truth from emerging that the “Russiagate” investigation has found no sign of a Trump/Putin plot to steal the 2016 presidential election from Hillary.

Indeed, it has been proven beyond all questioning that the Hillary emails were not hacked but were downloaded on a thumb drive. This proof collapses the entire premise of “Russiagate.”
Nevertheless, the hoax continues.

Muller’s indictments are for unrelated matters, such as income tax evasion in the distant past of Republican fund raisers and consultants. These charges have nothing whatsoever to do with Mueller’s mandate.

Indeed, as Andrew C. McCarthy, a former US attorney who led the 1995 terrorism prosecution against Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman for the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, has made clear, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s appointment of Mueller to head the “Russiagate” investigation is not in compliance with the regulations that govern the appointment of a special prosecutor.

The appointment of a special prosecutor requires evidence of a specific federal crime that is to be investigated. You only have a special prosecutor when there is factual basis for believing that a federal crime has been committed.

What is the federal crime? What is the factual basis? Mueller’s appointment does not say. Therefore, Mueller’s appointment is invalid. Rosenstein has violated the process.

In my opinion, this is grounds for Rosenstein to be removed from office. https://www.nationalreview.com/2018/09/trump-russia-probe-robert-mueller-investigation/

At one time, Congress—both parties—would have been all over the invalid Mueller appointment.

However, after 16 years of Cheney/Bush and Obama regime lawlessness, even Republicans accept that the Constitution’s restraints on executive branch power, along with the laws and regulations Congress has established specifying the exercise of these powers, have been rendered meaningless by the “war on terror,” a hoax designed to further Israel’s interests in the Middle East and the neoonservative doctrine of US hegemony, while making billions of dollars for the military/security complex.

Charlie Savage’s book, Takeover, and David Ray Griffin’s book, Bush and Cheney: How They Ruined America and the World, accurately document how 9/11 was used to destroy the Constitution’s balance of power within the government and to create unaccountable executive branch powers that over-ride the Constitution’s protection of civil liberty.

This demand for an unaccountable executive branch, pushed by VP—actually President in fact—Dick Cheney and his minions, such as Addington and John Yoo, was the agenda of the Republican Federalist Society.

An early book laying out the legally invalid and legally incompetent argument that the president had powers unchecked by Congress or the judiciary was Terry Eastland’s book, Energy in the Executive.

This collection of nonsense became Cheney’s bible as he proceeded in secret to remove constraints on executive branch power. The elevation of the executive branch above the law of the land is documented in Charlie Savage’s book. Read it and weep for your country destroyed by Dick Cheney.

On top of Cheney’s coup against accountable government, we have in America today another coup, organized by former CIA director John Brennan, former FBI director Comey, deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein, the Democratic National Committee, the departed Republican senator John McCain, a coup fully supported by the entirety of the US presstitute media.

This coup is against the democratically elected President of the United States for the sole reason that he threatens the power and profit of the entrenched military/security complex, about which President Eisenhower warned us 57 years ago, by wanting to normalize relations with Russia, the world’s premier nuclear power.

The question is unavoidable: Why do the American people put up with this? Are they so insouciant that they have no realization that, if a president can be driven from office because he wants peace with Russia, the removed president’s successor will have to stand against Russia or also be driven from office. Trust and negotiation between the nuclear powers becomes impossible.

Why do Americans support conflict with a nuclear power that can completely destroy America?

During the entirety of the Cold War, in which I was a participant, the emphasis was on reducing tensions and creating trust. Today Washington’s interest is piling provocation after provocation on a country that can wipe us off the face of the earth.

The liberal/progressive/left, the Democratic National Committee, the CIA and the rest of the covert state, and the media whores all share this same commitment to the reckless and irresponsible provocation of a powerful nuclear power. As the US military itself acknowledges, Russia’s weapons are far beyond America’s defenses.

So what is going on? Is it the liberal/progressive/left’s desire that evil America be destroyed? Is this desired destruction of evil America the reason the Left has allied itself so tightly with the warmongers in Washington?

Is this the reason that the Left and the Democrats and a handful of Republicans want to impeach President Trump for attempting to make peace with Russia?

How can these crazed immoral people present themselves as some sort of moral arbiter when they are locked on a trajectory that will destroy Earth?

This destruction might be closer than anyone thinks. Here is the situation in Syria:

Russia and Syria, in cooperation with Iran and Turkey, have begun the assult on Iblid province, the last stronghold of Washington’s proxy army consisting of Al Qaeda, Al Nursra, and ISIS mercenaries hired by Washington.

According to reports, which might or might not be true considering the lack of veracity that is the defining characteristic of the Western media, the US and UK have troops among the mercenary forces, hoping apparently that this presence will deter the attack. As the attack has already begun, this is a false hope.

The Russians discovered Washington’s plot to explode a chemical weapon in Iblid province and exposed Washington’s plot to the UN. Washington had it set up that once its proxies created the appearance of a chemical weapon explosion, Washington would send Tomahawk missiles upon the Syrian forces, thus protecting its proxy army that it sent to overthrow Assad for Israel.

The Russian exposure of Washington’s conspiracy has denied Washington UN support. Moreover, Russia has sent a naval force armed with the new Russian hypersonic missiles to Syria and has announced that its aircraft in the area are also armed with these missiles.

As the US Navy and Air Force have no defense whatsoever against these missiles, if the US attacks the Syrian/Russian forces, it will be Putin’s decision whether any US ship or military aircraft in the area exists as anything but a smoldering ruin.

In other words, the entire power in the area lies in Russian hands. If Washington had any sense—and it doesn’t, Washington has hubris and arrogance in the place of sense—Washington would be nowhere close to Syria.

The question is this: Will the hotheads in Washington conclude that the Russian announcements and marshalling of forces is “just another Putin bluff.”

So far Putin has been loaded up with never-ending insults and provocation— blame for the crash of the Malaysian airliner, blame for poisoning a variety of people in England, blame for invading Ukraine, blame for interfering in US elections, blame for supporting the “dictator” Assad, a person democratically elected by a large vote who obviously has the support of the Syrian people as he liberates Syria from the forces Washington sent to put the country into the same chaos that exists in Iraq and Libya.

Have we reached the situation about which I have been worried, worries shared with my readers, in which Washington makes the miscalculation, based on the incorrect understanding of Russia’s resolve, to launch an attack on the Syrian/Russian forces that have begun the final liberation of Syria from Washington’s paid mercenaries?

Yesterday the Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity sent a letter to President Trump advising him of the war danger that the Trump administration has created by its continued illegal interference in Syria’s internal affairs. https://www.globalresearch.ca/moscow-has-upped-the-ante-in-syria/5653571

The Russian government cannot accept Washington’s military intervention in behalf of Al Qaeda, Al Nursa, and ISIS without completely losing all credibility, not only in the world, but inside Russia itself.

A realistic alternative to military action would be for Washington to stand aside as Syria reconstitutes itself and use a propaganda war to blame Syria and Russia for civilian deaths and for destroying “democratic rebels” who rose against a “dictator.”

The fear could be expanded to the Baltics and Ukraine by reviving the propaganda that Putin intends to reconstruct the Soviet Empire.

Washington has long used an expertly manufactured fear of Russia to control Europe. Fear can keep Europe in line, whereas military action against Russia could scare Europe into taking refuge in a revival of its sovereignty.

Yesterday the Wall Street Journal reported: “President Bashar al-Assad of Syria has approved the use of chlorine gas in an offensive against the country’s last major rebel stronghold, U.S. officials said, raising the prospects for another retaliatory U.S. military strike as thousands try to escape what could be a decisive battle in the seven-year-old war.”

According to the Wall Street Journal, the US strikes could target Russian and Iranian forces as well as Syrian forces.

It is difficult to believe that Washington thinks attacks on Russian forces would go unanswered. Such a reckless and irresponsible act could initiate Armageddon.

The claim that Assad has approved the use of chlorine gas in the liberation of Iblid is propagandistic nonsense put out by Washington as an excuse for Washington’s effort to protect its proxy army in Syria with military strikes.

All Syrian chemical weapons were removed by Russia and turned over to the US during the Obama regime. Moreover, Russia would not permit Assad to use chemical weapons if he had them.

Life on earth is faced with a situation in which Washington is so determined to overthrow Assad and to leave Syria in the same chaos as Libya and Iraq that Washington is willing to risk war with Russia.

Never before have irrationality and immorality had such a firm hold on a government. The world should be scared to death of the recklessness and irresponsibility of the US government.

          China's pockets may not be deep enough to bail out emerging markets      Cache   Translate Page      

AP_18232179553108

  • China has extended easy credit to vulnerable countries.
  • But its pockets are not as deep as they once were, analysts say.
  • Lending to emerging markets could also face political backlash.

When Malaysia canceled two large-scale infrastructure projects backed by China last month, Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad said he was afraid the country could go bankrupt. As leader of a government that has tried to crowdfund its $250 billion of debt, that seems to be a reasonable concern.

"It’s all about borrowing too much money, which we cannot afford and cannot repay because we don’t need these projects in Malaysia," Mahathir told the New York Times in interviews about the projects, a rail link and a natural gas pipeline that had a collective price tag of more than $22 billion.

Malaysia is just the latest debt-ridden country to have been courted by Chinese lenders, a potential alternative to International Monetary Fund programs that can come with sweeping stipulations.

For example, China is Venezuela's largest creditor, lending the collapsing country more than $62 billion over the past decade. And just last week, President Xi Jinping offered countries in Africa another $60 billion in aid and loans.

But throwing life lines to emerging markets could be impractical for China in the long run, Nomura economists led by Ting Lu wrote in a recent note.

"China is still financially healthy, but its pockets are not as deep as they were," Lu wrote.

In the first three months of 2018, China ran its first current account-deficit since before joining the World Trade Organization in 2001. It rebounded by the second-quarter, but the setback raised questions about whether current-account deficits could occur more frequently in the future.

China's foreign-exchange reserves have fallen to roughly $3.1 trillion from $4 trillion in 2014. Meanwhile, hard-currency external debt has surged, with corporate offshore dollar bond issuance up about $500 billion during that same period.

"As China’s economy is becoming increasingly constrained by its own production capacity, EM imports from China financed by RMB borrowings would likely squeeze China’s exports, resulting, in our opinion, in a headline trade surplus that could overstate actual FX inflows, ultimately impairing China’s FX reserves," Lu wrote. 

Lending to emerging markets could also face political backlash as China faces an economic slowdown and as a trade war with the US continues to escalate. As Bloomberg Opinion columnist Shuli Ren recently wrote, "China’s shaky domestic economy may mean that it’s no longer politically viable for Beijing to keep being so generous."

For now though, China appears comfortable cozying up to emerging markets. The country been looking to expand economic ties abroad through its Belt and Road Initiative, a trillion-dollar investment venture that has infrastructure investment plans spanning across more than 60 countries.

A recent Pentagon report found the initiative is designed to shape interests to align with Beijing and to avoid confrontation and criticism. Involved countries could "develop economic dependence on Chinese capital, which China could leverage to achieve its interests," it said.

"They know that when they lend big sums of money to a poor country, in the end they may have to take the project for themselves," Mahathir told the Times.

          Erdogan appoints himself as head of Turkey wealth fund      Cache   Translate Page      
12-september-2018 President Erdogan Wednesday appointed himself the chairman of Turkey's sovereign wealth fund and named his son-in-law and Finance Minister Berat Albayrak as deputy chairman. The fund's assets include the state's minority 49.12-percent shareholding in flag carrier Turkish Airlines, as well as state-owned enterprises such as the PTT Turkish post office. The fund was set up in the aftermath of the attempted overthrow of Erdogan in July 2016. Its establishment was seen as a way of tightening state control over Turkey's assets. Such funds can be used for large projects, maintaining pensions and national welfare programs, or in times of crisis. https://www.reuters.com/article/turkey-economy-fund/turkeys-president-becomes-chairman-of-sovereign-wealth-fund-idUSL5N1VY0FN {{file|t=8M8l_1536791773}} {{file|t=9vQPr_1536791683}} Atayan: Assigned by Atanan: Assignee "Uyeler: Members Onaylayan: Confirmed by

Turkey reinforces military in Syria's Idlib after ceasefire call failsPresident Tayyip Erdogan has warned that an assault by the army and its Russian and Iran-backed allies on Idlib, home to around 3 million people, will uproot hundreds of thousands in one of Syria's last rebel strongholds. Already hosting 3.5 million Syrians - the world's biggest refugee population - Turkey says it cannot absorb more victims of the war and has accused the West of abandoning it to face the consequences of President Bashar al-Assad's reconquest of Syria. At a meeting in Tehran on Friday with the presidents of Russia and Iran, seen as the last realistic chance to avert all-out conflict in the insurgent-held region, Erdogan failed to win a pledge of ceasefire from Assad's two main backers.

Fly fishing

The North Fork Coeur d’Alene River has seen some good cutthroat fishing lately, the Silver Bow Fly Shop said. Look for the small slots or any sort of structure. The water is skinny, but less obvious water is yielding some big fish.

The St. Joe continues to provide good fly fishing. Fish slower water in the mornings and evenings and pocket water during the day. Caddis are out.

Overall, dry/droppers consisting of Chernobyls or hoppers with beadhead attractor nymphs will be one of the best tactics on the Spokane River.

Attractor patterns like Humpies, Trudes and Stimis have been effective recently on the Clark Fork.

Salmon and steelhead

The Okanogan River, from the Highway 97 Bridge upstream of the mouth to the bridge in Oroville, and the Similkameen River close for chinook on Saturday. The Wenatchee River closes Sept. 30, the upper Okanogan River closes Oct. 15, and the Chelan River closes Oct. 31. The retention fishery is two chinook per angler.

Trout and kokanee

Two friends and I tried Loon Lake one more night last week. The bite was almost nonexistent, and two of the five fish caught had lost their sheen and were quite slimy. The others were next year’s fish, running only to 9 inches. The unwanted bluegill bite, however, was outstanding with several hand-sized fish taken. Judging by the graph, there are huge schools about 20 feet below the surface.

Coeur d’Alene Lake kokanee spawn later than those in Loon Lake and are still in excellent shape. Fishing has been good for 11-inch fish almost everywhere, but Mica Bay has been outstanding.

September is the last month of trout fishing for many Columbia Basin (Grant and Adams counties) waters and a few others – Spectacle Lake and Washburn Island Pond in Okanogan County and Blackbird Island Pond in Chelan County.

September is also the last chance to fish several of the region’s rainbow and/or cutthroat trout fishing lakes. Closing Sept. 30 is Fishtrap Lake in Lincoln County and Badger and Williams in southwest Spokane County. With all limits off on West Medical trout, a few anglers are hauling in ridiculous numbers of fish.

Spokane County’s Downs Lake and Lincoln County’s Coffeepot Lake close at the end of the month but can yield good catches of perch, crappie and rainbow trout during September. Sprague Lake water clarity has improved considerably and some really large trout are being taken by trollers.

Rock Lake browns and rainbow are being taken by trollers dragging small spoons 30-40 feet below the surface.

Spiny ray

Year-round lakes continue to provide good fishing for bass and panfish, including Silver, Newman, Long, Bear, Eloika, Haden, Hauser, Fernan and Twin.

Smallmouth bass fishermen can hardly go wrong anywhere on the Snake River or on Coeur d’Alene Lake and particularly Priest Lake in Idaho. The fish are slowly moving back into shallower water and feeding heavily.

Coeur d’Alene pike seem to have moved back in the weeds in 5-8 feet of water rather than lurking on the outer edges. Usually, the bite picks up as the water cools, particularly for the larger fish. Hardcore pike anglers are looking forward to seeing water temperatures in the 50s.

Curlew Lake perch fishing was good all summer, but it picks up in the fall. There are also plenty of largemouth bass available. Don’t be surprised to find good rainbow trout fishing.

Other species

A white sturgeon retention fishery in the Lower Columbia River will take place the next two Saturdays upstream from Wauna powerlines to Bonneville Dam. Sturgeon from 44- to 50-inches fork length may be retained.

Hunting

For me, fall turkey hunting (which will continue in most Washington units until the end of December) is not nearly as exciting as the spring season because the birds are almost too easy. Wednesday morning, I had 15 birds in my yard, and it took a lot of yelling to make them leave. Nonhunting friends say there doesn’t seem to be much challenge in shooting a turkey, but they have not experienced the spring season when the flocks break up and the mature gobblers become ultrawary because they do not have the security of the flock with all its eyes. If you’re looking for meat rather than challenge, you can kill four fall turkeys in Washington – two beardless and two either sex.

Doves are pretty much gone from the Spokane and North Idaho area, but according to reports, hunters to the south are still having some decent shooting. Grouse are also beginning to show up, but it appears this will not be a banner year. Judging from the population around my house, cottontail rabbits have done well recently. Four years ago, it was unusual to see a cottontail north of Spokane.

Washington bear season ends Nov. 15. Hunters may take two bear, but only one in eastern Washington.

          Comment on Love Me As I Am (Beni Boyle Sev) by Calrissima      Cache   Translate Page      
Hi Judy Ellison, I too have just finished Love Me As I am/ Beni Boyle Sev series one, two & three on UK Netflix. I am surprised I stayed with it so long as I am not a huge fan of romantic comedies usually, I love Turkish series but usually prefer one with a bit of a thriller and or gangster aspect. However as you say, this was an excellently acted comedy which grows on you after a while and is genuinely funny. I do agree with you partly about Ayshem who I too, started to find annoying but then I am aware that I soon get bored of the main couple's romance in Turkish dramas anyway and the eternal focus on the heroine/ her face, basically. However I came to the conclusion that they were actually depicting the fact that Ayshem was a bit, or minorly mad/ insane. As was Haluk, just a little. Yes, he is highly educated but it is left to us to wonder if he is a bit mad too. Although he often does put on that schtick, on purpose, to get people to stop questioning him as to something specific. I think this was implied, that his friends realised he was a bit 'out there' and so was Ayshem. She herself refers, in the beginning, to "my obsessions" which she admits she does get. When she has the influence of hormones or extra stress in her life; then this side of her mental make-up comes out so to speak. Well that was my take on it anyway. Plus she really is naive as you say, she has been brought up as a much adored single child in a small village by an adoring father so she has led a sheltered life and also been spoiled, not materially but emotionally as she is used to getting her own way in everything! This is shown in the early series as Ayshem basically sulking with Omer when he doesn't agree or give in to her. However Ayshem does grow up over the series and becomes more adult. Yet overall she is basically still the same self as is shown at the University when she describes it to someone going for a job there as "pretend to be very serious, they like that"! They deliberately, I felt, show Ayshem stomping along in her high heels because she was never really used to wearing them, lol. There is a deliberate contrast and depiction of the different cultures within which Ayshem and Omer and his friends, have been brought up in. Ayshem does experience things differently and seems to live in a more emotional realm than Omer and his friends do. This is an ongoing theme in Turkish dramas, to compare and contrast the different cultures and outlooks of the working class characters, usually from the countryside, versus the middle or upper class, often urban characters. It is the classic compare and contrast of 'traditional' versus 'modern' cultural /family values. Although it is never as clearly cut and dried as this though in practice as these dramas show us. My take on Haluk was that he was brilliant but a wee bit mad but he also came from the countryside, near to where Ayshem came from, although exactly where was all a bit vague. Accepting Haluk for how he was: was an example of the group's tolerance to the viewer I felt. Haluk is actually the lynchpin of the entire series in the beginning as it is he who helps out both Ayshem and her father and brings many of the characters together if you notice. For me it was Reyhans' interminable gurning and exaggerated facial expressions for a period that nearly had me giving up. I mean, surely she is more than a bit mad too! Again, this is depicting the tolerance of the group to different people I think. They are all similar but different yet broadly agree on things. I would point out that Turkish dramas often have a comedy character or duo, in the ancient style of Shakespeare's plays, there was often a 'fool' who comes on and speaks to the audience or clowns around. This happens in Intersection/ Filinta to name a couple off the top of my head. With respect, you may be taking things too seriously to be so annoyed at Haluk and Reha, I mean Reha was meant to be over the top evil, yet there were times he breaks down with emotion as it is all based on the love of his son really.. Reha and his wife (did we ever find out her name?) were hilariously and excellently acted comedy characters. If you do not happen to come from a from a culture who accepts that much interference in a son's life from their parents-you will find them even more incomprehensible but funny and mad at the same time! But I do think they were meant to be a caricature of such parents that everybody can understand. Nb. It was explained at some point that they retired to Brazil as it was cheaper to live there and they didn't want to be seen by any of their rich friends in Turkey in their new circumstances.. What happened at the end of series two is explained in detail in episode One, you have to listen out for it, around 1:24 minutes in a character asks another: so what happened? I agree about the music in Turkish dramas, it does sneak up on you and after a while really grows on you and is an extra informative key to the action and emotion happening at various times too! ie. It takes on a language of its own. I particularly liked the main theme tune sung by Orhan Gencebey, wonderful singing and baritone voice. :) Agreed about series four-where is it? This always happens with Turkish series-nooooooooo!
          What's Next for Idlib?       Cache   Translate Page      
Being honest here, not, a fan of Josh Landis- But, he offers some good insights into the dynamics in Syria's north- So I'm sharing the interview. Dated August 08/18
I've left off the claim in the original title regarding Syria's proxies gathering for Idlib- It's very clear that did not happen. Not even close.
We have all now been made aware that claims of a coordinated Syrian/Russian move into Idlib were false.

Part of the interview below:
"Q: In recent months, we’ve seen Turkish authorities entrenching in northern Syria: school administrators are adding Turkish language school curriculums, local councils are displaying Turkish flags and Turkish propaganda is increasingly visible in public spaces. There’s even a word some residents are using to describe the phenomenon: “Turkification.” What do you see as Turkey’s long-term priorities in maintaining this presence in northern Aleppo?
JL: I think Turkey is prepared to, in a sense, quasi-annex this region. It’s the only thing that makes sense, because if they don’t, they’re going to be re-conquered by the Assad regime and they’ll be brought back into Syria.

The long-term problem for Turkey is whether they can do this kind of thing and have it accepted by the international community. And so far, it’s working for them.

I would compare it to Iskenderun, [also known as] Alexandretta, which was a separate administrative unit of Syria under the French Mandate until Turkey annexed it in 1939. There were somewhere over 40,000 or 50,000 refugees who fled the region into Syria at that time. The Sunnis stayed and became Turks. The lines between a Turk and an Arab could be fungible.
Q: But do you see that dynamic—of pro-Turkish sentiment among Syrians in the north—playing out now?
JL: Yes, I do. I think many Sunnis believe that they’d be better off with Turkey. And that’s really demonstrated in the fact that most of the rebel militias who use Turkey as a refuge also see Turkey as, in a sense, a mothership that supplies them with diplomatic support, political support, military support, economic support, everything. And they see the Turks as champions of their Islamic identity.

In a sense, by being Turks, by being under the umbrella of Turkish rule, in some ways they are more authentically Muslim. It underlines the ambiguities, just like it did in the 1930s, between Islamic and ethnic identity, which we see in today’s civil war and in the uprising against Assad.
Q: But what does Ankara stand to benefit from potentially annexing northern Aleppo, or at least maintaining a heavy presence there?
Turkey has a number of things. First, on the most practical level, Turkey gains leverage to affect future negotiations with Assad.

Second, Turkey is very fearful that Assad will drive all the rebels and their families [who are currently present in northern Aleppo and Idlib] into Turkey, scattering them across Anatolia. And that’s tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of people.
 
So Turkey has a great interest in not allowing Assad to drive all of these tens of thousands of rebels [out]. They don’t want refugees. They have enough, with two million-point-something.

[Ed.: As of July 2018, the UN counts more than 3,500,000 registered Syrian refugees living in Turkey.]
3.5 million is the official UN number- that I've seen many times.

Q: What kind of leverage does Turkey’s presence in northern Aleppo actually hold over the Syrian government?
Well, the [potential] trade that’s sitting there, and waiting to be done, is that if the Syrian government controls the Kurds, Turkey will withdraw from territory in [northern] Syria.
[Ed.: US-backed, majority-Kurdish authorities in a de facto autonomous region of northeastern Syria are pushing forward with plans to negotiate with Damascus for a “decentralized, democratic system” in areas under their control, Syria Direct reported late last month. The Syrian Democratic Council, the political wing of the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces, announced in July it had entered into talks with the Syrian government for a “roadmap leading to a “democratic and decentralized Syria.”]
JL:Well, the trade that can be made is that Turkey abandons the Syrian rebels to a certain degree and gives Syria much of Idlib province in exchange for the Syrian government retaking much of the Kurdish region, and America leaving. And that means no more arming of the Kurds, no more weapons going to the Kurds. Syrian intelligence would have to work closely with the Turkish intelligence, I presume, to make sure that the Kurds are not smuggling arms up to the PKK, and that the Turkish army gets to destroy the PKK inside of Anatolia and suppress the Kurds.
But Turkey doesn’t trust Assad. They believe that he has cooperated with the [separatist, Kurdish-nationalist group] PKK in the past. So Turkey is fearful that Syria will go back to helping the PKK divide Turkey in the same way that Turkey has helped the rebels divide Syria.

As soon as [Turkey] gives up that territory, they have no leverage whatsoever over Syria.
Q: You mentioned earlier that Ankara doesn’t want rebels in Idlib streaming into Turkey if they face a possible defeat there. Can you talk more about the stakes in Idlib from a military perspective? Do you see Ankara poised to back rebels there in an oncoming battle, to the extent that we’ve been seeing in northern Aleppo?

Turkey has 12 observation posts that it has established across Idlib, which are backed up by Turkish soldiers with heavy weapons and tanks. So, if Assad bombs them, he’s going to be bombing Turkey and this is going to be a casus belli in theory. So, Assad has to step very carefully around these observation points.
Q: You wrote earlier this year on your Syria Comment blog that the US policy of backing majority-Kurdish groups in northern Syria has “pushed Turkey into the sphere of Russian influence.” How is this dynamic playing out today with regard to preparations for a battle for Idlib? Do you see any major contradictions?
JL:Russia is very keen on trying to make a deal between Turkey, the Kurds and Syria. They’re trying to negotiate a way to avoid war, in much the same way that they did in southern Syria, where the Syrian Arab Army was able to retake all of that region in only about a month’s time and Israel, Jordan, the United States all agreed to it [and] did not enter into the war to stop the Syrian army. And the rebels were forced to make agreements with the army or to retreat to Idlib province.

The problem is that northern Syria is much more difficult. It’s filled with all these radical Islamist groups, it’s right on Turkey’s border and Turkey is a major power—it’s not like Jordan. And Russia has a great deal invested in Turkey. Russia does not want to go to war against Turkey.

This is going to tax Russian diplomacy to the max. Nobody knows what to do about it. In a sense, it’s the collecting point of all the problems in Syria. 
Q: Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan warned his Russian counterpart Putin last month that a battle in Idlib would effectively “destroy” the Astana accord, which placed the province within one of four so-called “de-escalation zones.” Is that just an empty talking point, or is there real concern here of a diplomatic fallout?
JL;Good question. The Astana accord represents an agreement between Russia, Turkey, Iran and other regional powers to use diplomacy and not to go to war. If that falls apart, it really means the dialogue falls apart. And that means you could fall to blows.

I think both Russia and Turkey have the idea that they are not going to war. And that they both think they can finesse the situation.

So, there’s going to be a lot of pushing and pulling, and we’re not sure how it will end. Or where exactly the lines will be drawn. But I think Assad is committed to taking back the whole [province].
Q: But there’s the argument that Astana is meaningless, that none of the de-escalation zones it established in Syria did much to stop the fighting at all, except maybe in parts of southern Daraa and Quneitra provinces for a period of time.
That wasn’t their purpose. Their actual purpose was to provide the United States with a graceful way to abandon the Syrian rebels. President Obama [decided], “I’m not going to war against Russia for Syria.” That’s been American foreign policy ever since. They conceded Syria to Russia.

That meant that they had to find a way to allow Assad and Russia to destroy the rebels. But of course, the US had committed to the rebels. So it’s very embarrassing for America to have to do that. And America kept hoping that it could get leverage, that it could force Assad to step down, that they could save face by getting a negotiated solution. None of that’s turned out to be correct.

Now it’s a question of whether Turkey will go to war with Syria for these rebel groups. And, my hunch is, Turkey won’t want to."
I don't think Turkey will go to war for these rebels either-

          The human price of inaction and action in Syria, Turkey and Libya | Letters      Cache   Translate Page      
Margaret Owen, Mary Holmes and Kevin Bannon on the failures of the UK government’s foreign policy

The government’s failure in its responsibility to protect innocent civilians from atrocities, ethnic cleansing and genocide, as described in the foreign affairs committee report (MPs want inquiry into cost of inaction on Syria, 10 September), is not just “inconsistent” (Letters, 12 September), it is criminal.

The People’s Tribunal on Turkey, which reported to the European parliament in May, led by seven eminent judges from European countries, found Turkey guilty of atrocious war crimes in both south-east Turkey and in Syria, based on evidence of over 400 witnesses.

          Growth Opportunities in Global Automation Solutions in Oil and Gas Market Research Report 2025: ABB Ltd., Emerson Electric Co., Hitachi, Ltd.      Cache   Translate Page      

Brooklyn, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/12/2018 -- Qyresearchreports include new market research report Global Automation Solutions in Oil and Gas Market Professional Survey Report 2018 to its huge collection of research reports.

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

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

Request Free Estimate : https://www.qyresearchreports.com/sample/sample.php?rep_id=1868045&type=S

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

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

          A Nod to Summer and A Wink at Autumn      Cache   Translate Page      
To every thing there is a season 
And a time to every purpose under heaven. ~ Ecclesiastes 3:1

Hello friends! The last few days have been cool but it's warming up again on the weekend. Sadly, Summer is fading quickly and Autumn is knocking on the door. I am going to miss the warm weather.

Here on Prince Edward Island, we have two seasons that almost skip from one to another. Our Winters last so long that our Springs barely have time to sprout its greenery before Summer arrives. And Autumn barely winks at us before the cold of Winter sets in again which is why I really don't enjoy Autumn all that much. 
We had a very hot and unusual summer this year but we enjoyed it. Still it passed all too quickly. Ah, seasons! What is your favourite season?

Speaking of seasons, I will share just a few photos I had taken over the summer. Enjoy!



We visited our favourite tea room again a few weeks ago and the lovely hydrangeas are in full bloom.


As many of you know, we are beach people.
A day on the beach. Can you smell the salt air? 

I've shared this picture of my granddaughter on the beach at sunset before but I can't help but share it again. It was magical!

Last week, we took a drive down to Murray River which is east of us and I took this shot of the river with Queen Anne's Lace in the foreground.





With the cooler temperatures comes the inclination to nest. One day last week I made my wonderful Hamburger and Barley soup. It was a cool and drizzly day so this hearty soup was just right for warming the tummy. It was lovely with some crusty bread and cheese. Sorry, I can't share the recipe because I made it mostly in my head as I do with many of my recipes. I can tell you that it is filled with tomatoes, barley, veggies, hamburg, and lots of herbs.



Cakes are special. Every birthday, every celebration ends with something sweet, a cake, and people remember. It's all about the memories. ~ Buddy Valastro

This time of year I seem to crave cake a little more than usual. But this cake was baked for someone special; my son who just celebrated his birthday. This is a scrumptious two layer chocolate cake, sandwiched with strawberry preserves and whipped cream. The berries make it look so pretty! It was a big hit! 
Would you like a slice?

The plate is made by Wedgwood called Romantic England and depicts a home from 1605.

The cup and saucer are Vista made by Masons of England.

Steam rises from a cup of tea
and we are wrapped in history,
inhaling ancient time and lands,
comfort of ages in our hands. ~ Faith Greenbow


Next week, this wreath will replace my summer one on the front door.  Pumpkins will be squatting on the steps and mums will be replacing my petunias and pansies. 
Oh, dear summer, I will surely miss you! Although Autumn does have its benefits too. Like pumpkin pie and turkey dinners and walks through the woods with crunching leaves beneath our feet. 

I can smell autumn dancing in the breeze. The sweet chill of pumpkin and crisp sunburnt leaves. ~ unknown

Have a wonderful rest of the week, dear friends, and please pray for our friends in North and South Carolina as well as Virginia. Hurricane Florence sounds like she will not be too kind! Please, dear Lord, watch over them all and keep them safe!


I am sharing this with ~
Share Your Cup 
Home Sweet Home

Sharing from my heart ~ Sandi

          : Rain in the north - Showers in the south, 12 Set - 05:43      Cache   Translate Page      

High temperatures maintained in the south and east, albeit with showers. Cooler to the north with some rain Wednesday Showers in eastern Spain, some heavy. Drier for the rest of Spain and Portugal with good spells of sunshine. The showers extend through the Balearics as well as Corsica and Sardinia. Italy should be fair with sunny spells and feeling warm. Showers affecting Greece and Portugal, again some of these will be heavy. France has a mix of sunshine and scattered showers. Cloud and some showery rain extends over northern Germany and the Low Countries. Poland, southern Germany, Austria and Hungary should all be dry with sunny spells. Thundery showers forming in Switzerland. Denmark will be rather cloudy with some showery rain. Breezy with rain and showers in the Baltic States. Finland will be windy with further showers. Drier in Sweden and windy. Norway will be unsettled and windy with rain, some heavy. Very warm or hot across Central and Southern Europe, temperatures typically in the high 20s to low 30s and locally exceeding 35C in parts of the south. Becoming progressively cooler further north, especially in the rain over Norway.

Thursday Isolated showers for the north and far south of Spain and the Balearics but staying dry with spells of sunshine across much of Portugal and Spain. Some sunshine but also showers, locally, heavy in Corsica Sardinia and Italy but dry into the Adriatic. Sunshine for Greece with early showers dying out but showers develop over Turkey, especially in central and northern parts with a risk of thunder. Early rain over the Low Countries and Northern France clears to give some sunshine but heavy showers are likely towards the east and south. Thundery showers for Austria and Switzerland, possibly extending into the south of Poland and Germany but dry with sunny spells further north. Further east and south, including towards the Black Sea coast it will be largely dry and sunny. Rainy over western and southern Norway but dry for much of the time over Scandinavia and the Baltic States, with only isolated showers. Lower temperatures sink a little further south into some central parts but the south remains very warm.

          River Camp RV Park 8/10 - Meeker, Colorado      Cache   Translate Page      
Stopped here for a few days and just missed the Sheep dog trials that happened over the weekend. That would have been cool!. This park is on the White River which was pretty low and warm at our visit. They were asking you not to fish after 2 pm in the afternoon to avoid stressing the trout. The sites were long, gravel, and spacious. We had site 14 on the outside ring and had lots of room with a firepit and picnic table. Turkeys were in the field just behind us. Elk hunting season was in full swing so the woods had lots of hunters. Great WIFI which had been upgraded so that is always a plus! Meeker is small American town with lots of history. We spent our day cruising the Flat Tops Trail scenic and historic byway up to Trapper Lake and it was a beautiful fall day with lots of Aspen colors in the high altitudes.

If you want to try your hand at building your own VPN but aren’t sure where to start, you’ve come to the right place. I’ll compare six of the best free and open source tools to set up and use a VPN on your own server. These VPNs work whether you want to set up a site-to-site VPN for your business or just create a remote access proxy to unblock websites and hide your internet traffic from ISPs.
Which is best depends on your needs and limitations, so take into consideration your own technical expertise, environment, and what you want to achieve with your VPN. In particular, consider the following factors:
  • VPN protocol
  • Number of clients and types of devices
  • Server distro compatibility
  • Technical expertise required

Algo

Algo was designed from the bottom up to create VPNs for corporate travelers who need a secure proxy to the internet. It “includes only the minimal software you need,” meaning you sacrifice extensibility for simplicity. Algo is based on StrongSwan but cuts out all the things that you don’t need, which has the added benefit of removing security holes that a novice might otherwise not notice.
As an added bonus, it even blocks ads! Algo supports only the IKEv2 protocol and Wireguard. Because IKEv2 support is built into most devices these days, it doesn’t require a client app like OpenVPN. Algo can be deployed using Ansible on Ubuntu (the preferred option), Windows, RedHat, CentOS, and FreeBSD. Setup is automated using Ansible, which configures the server based on your answers to a short set of questions. It’s also very easy to tear down and re-deploy on demand.
Algo is probably the easiest and fastest VPN to set up and deploy on this list. It’s extremely tidy and well thought out. If you don’t need any of the more advanced features offered by other tools and just need a secure proxy, it’s a great option. Note that Algo explicitly states it’s not meant for geo-unblocking or evading censorship, and was primarily designed for confidentiality.

Streisand

Streisand can be installed on any Ubuntu 16.04 server using a single command; the process takes about 10 minutes. It supports L2TP, OpenConnect, OpenSSH, OpenVPN, Shadowsocks, Stunnel, Tor bridge, and WireGuard. Depending on which protocol you choose, you may need to install a client app.
In many ways, Streisand is similar to Algo, but it offers more protocols and customization. This takes a bit more effort to manage and secure but is also more flexible. Note Streisand does not support IKEv2. I would say Streisand is more effective for bypassing censorship in places like China and Turkey due to its versatility, but Algo is easier and faster to set up.
The setup is automated using Ansible, so there’s not much technical expertise required. You can easily add more users by sending them custom-generated connection instructions, which include an embedded copy of the server’s SSL certificate.
Tearing down Streisand is a quick and painless process, and you can re-deploy on demand.

OpenVPN

OpenVPN requires both client and server applications to set up VPN connections using the protocol of the same name. OpenVPN can be tweaked and customized to fit your needs, but it also requires the most technical expertise of the tools covered here. Both remote access and site-to-site configurations are supported; the former is what you’ll need if you plan on using your VPN as a proxy to the internet. Because client apps are required to use OpenVPN on most devices, the end user must keep them updated.
Server-side, you can opt to deploy in the cloud or on your Linux server. Compatible distros include CentOS, Ubuntu, Debian, and openSUSE. Client apps are available for Windows, MacOS, iOS, and Android, and there are unofficial apps for other devices. Enterprises can opt to set up an OpenVPN Access Server, but that’s probably overkill for individuals, who will want the Community Edition.
OpenVPN is relatively easy to configure with static key encryption, but it isn’t all that secure. Instead, I recommend setting it up with easy-rsa, a key management package you can use to set up a public key infrastructure. This allows you to connect multiple devices at a time and protect them with perfect forward secrecy, among other benefits. OpenVPN uses SSL/TLS for encryption, and you can specify DNS servers in your configuration.
OpenVPN can traverse firewalls and NAT firewalls, which means you can use it to bypass gateways and firewalls that might otherwise block the connection. It supports both TCP and UDP transports.

StrongSwan

You might have come across a few different VPN tools with “Swan” in the name. FreeS/WAN, OpenSwan, LibreSwan, and strongSwan are all forks of the same project, and the lattermost is my personal favorite. Server-side, strongSwan runs on Linux 2.6, 3.x, and 4x kernels, Android, FreeBSD, macOS, iOS, and Windows.
StrongSwan uses the IKEv2 protocol and IPSec. Compared to OpenVPN, IKEv2 connects much faster while offering comparable speed and security. This is useful if you prefer a protocol that doesn’t require installing an additional app on the client, as most newer devices manufactured today natively support IKEv2, including Windows, MacOS, iOS, and Android.
StrongSwan is not particularly easy to use, and despite decent documentation, it uses a different vocabulary than most other tools, which can be confusing. Its modular design makes it great for enterprises, but that also means it’s not the most streamlined. It’s certainly not as straightforward as Algo or Streisand.
Access control can be based on group memberships using X.509 attribute certificates, a feature unique to strongSwan. It supports EAP authentication methods for integration into other environments like Windows Active Directory. StrongSwan can traverse NAT firewalls.

SoftEther

SoftEther started out as a project by a graduate student at the University of Tsukuba in Japan. SoftEther VPN Server and VPN Bridge run on Windows, Linux, OSX, FreeBSD, and Solaris, while the client app works on Windows, Linux, and MacOS. VPN Bridge is mainly for enterprises that need to set up site-to-site VPNs, so individual users will just need the server and client programs to set up remote access.
SoftEther supports the OpenVPN, L2TP, SSTP, and EtherIP protocols, but its own SoftEther protocol claims to be able to be immunized against deep packet inspection thanks to “Ethernet over HTTPS” camouflage. SoftEther also makes a few tweaks to reduce latency and increase throughput. Additionally, SoftEther includes a clone function that allows you to easily transition from OpenVPN to SoftEther.
SoftEther can traverse NAT firewalls and bypass firewalls. On restricted networks that permit only ICMP and DNS packets, you can utilize SoftEther’s VPN over ICMP or VPN over DNS options to penetrate the firewall. SoftEther works with both IPv4 and IPv6.
SoftEther is easier to set up than OpenVPN and strongSwan but is a bit more complicated than Streisand and Algo.

WireGuard

WireGuard is the newest tool on this list; it's so new that it’s not even finished yet. That being said, it offers a fast and easy way to deploy a VPN. It aims to improve on IPSec by making it simpler and leaner like SSH.
Like OpenVPN, WireGuard is both a protocol and a software tool used to deploy a VPN that uses said protocol. A key feature is “crypto key routing,” which associates public keys with a list of IP addresses allowed inside the tunnel.
WireGuard is available for Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora, CentOS, MacOS, Windows, and Android. WireGuard works on both IPv4 and IPv6.
WireGuard is much lighter than most other VPN protocols, and it transmits packets only when data needs to be sent.
The developers say WireGuard should not yet be trusted because it hasn’t been fully audited yet, but you’re welcome to give it a spin. It could be the next big thing!

Homemade VPN vs. commercial VPN

Making your own VPN adds a layer of privacy and security to your internet connection, but if you’re the only one using it, then it would be relatively easy for a well-equipped third party, such as a government agency, to trace activity back to you.
Furthermore, if you plan to use your VPN to unblock geo-locked content, a homemade VPN may not be the best option. Since you’ll only be connecting from a single IP address, your VPN server is fairly easy to block.
Good commercial VPNs don’t have these issues. With a provider like ExpressVPN, you share the server’s IP address with dozens or even hundreds of other users, making it nigh-impossible to track a single user’s activity. You also get a huge range of hundreds or thousands of servers to choose from, so if one has been blacklisted, you can just switch to another.
The tradeoff of a commercial VPN, however, is that you must trust the provider not to snoop on your internet traffic. Be sure to choose a reputable provider with a clear no-logs policy.

ISTANBUL: The Turkish Central Bank is expected to raise interest rates on Thursday to calm a currency crisis, but forecasts for the scale of the increase vary widely as the bank balances concerns over lira weakness with worries about an economic slowdown.
The lira has slumped 40 percent against the dollar this year, weakened by unease over President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s influence on monetary policy and more recently a bitter row with the US that has unsettled investors.

          "The Great Divergence"      Cache   Translate Page      
"The Great Divergence"
by Brian Maher

"A hinge, somewhere within the financial machinery, has given way… The pretty mainstream tale of “synchronized global recovery” has been reduced to a sad jest. Even its loudest drummers can only cough behind their hands. American markets once again trade at or near record highs - it is true. But overseas markets are in a bad way…

The Chinese stock market is down 25% from its early-year high. It has therefore officially entered bear market country (a 20% decline). The Japanese stock market is down 12% over the same space - an official correction. And German stocks? Down 17% and risking a bear market all their own. Foreign orders for German capital goods have plunged 12% over the past seven months - an ill omen for Europe perhaps. Meantime, we are told that 809 of 1,150 emerging-market stocks are down 20% or more.

Observe below how the S&P 500 marched in step with global stocks until this spring. 
Then note the subsequent divergence:
Something’s not right… Bank of America claims this divergence "is reaching levels normally only exceeded in bear markets." To what strange arts do we attribute this parting of courses? What subtle alchemy is at work?

Perhaps we need look no further than 2051 Constitution Ave NW, Washington, D.C., 20418. That of course is the address of the Eccles Building... home to the Federal Reserve’s Board of Governors.  The Federal Reserve has been raising interest rates since December 2015. Meantime, many global interest rates still wallow in negative figures.

Capital flows to where it is treated best. And at present, global capital is pouring into American markets… where it is treated grandly in comparison. As the folks at Phoenix Capital explain: "The Fed policies of raising rates is making the U.S. extremely attractive to capital. Today, the yield on short-term U.S. debt is over 2%. This is happening at a time when most of the world is still posting negative yields."

Put simply, the Fed is making U.S. debt extremely attractive to capital… at a time when other nations are punishing their debtholders. As a result of this, capital is moving into the U.S., propping up our markets while the rest of the world collapses. The trend may only accelerate - in the short run at least. The Federal Reserve’s so-called Open Market Committee meets less than two weeks from today. The market is currently placing the odds of a rate hike at 96.8% - in favor. Why it is not 96.7% or 96.9% is a mystery we are unable to penetrate.  But the business appears all but certain.

Meantime, the Federal Reserve has been hacking into its balance sheet since October last. Our agents inform us it gouged nearly $70 billion from the books in August alone - its largest reduction to date. The effect of this quantitative tightening is to siphon additional capital from overseas markets. Bank of America's Barnaby Martin, for example, asserts that quantitative tightening: "Is having the effect of pulling global capital out of those pockets of the economy that were the big beneficiaries of the post-[financial crisis] reach for yield."

American markets have been the beneficiaries of the directional flow… while overseas markets are on the skids.  But how long can this divergence endure?

In today’s vastly interlocked world, the butterfly flaps its wings somewhere and a storm rages half a world away.

Can U.S. markets retain their immunity to overseas effects? “The economy, globally, is slowing down from the fringes and going to the core,” as Hans Redeker, head of foreign exchange strategy at Morgan Stanley, recently warned. Continued Redeker: "When you see a risk in emerging markets rolling over, and you have this concentration of liquidity in the U.S., you know that the next market that is going to give in is the equity market of the United States of America."

Peter Boockvar, chief investment officer at Bleakley Advisory Group, agreed with the somber assessment: "It’s hard to think that S&P 500 companies are going to be somehow immune to the slowdown we’re clearly seeing in China and the rest of Asia and also throughout Europe and Latin America."

Incidentally, nearly half the profits of S&P corporations originate abroad. We explained after last month’s Turkish contretemps that an emerging-markets crisis might not impact American shores for nearly four months - if history is a guide. That would place landfall in November or December. Regardless, things will turn the other way - eventually.  But as always, nothing happens… until it happens.

Below, Jim Rickards shows you how the dollar is becoming a victim of its own success. “Be careful what you wish for,” Jim warns. What does he mean? Read on."
"The Dollar Is Becoming a Victim of Its Own Success"
By Jim Rickards

"Turkey’s economic problems are well-known. President Erdoğan has appointed relatives and cronies to key economic policy positions. This has caused a loss of independence of the central bank and a loss of confidence in the stability of the currency, the Turkish lira.  The lira collapse has triggered hyperinflation and a stock market crash. Bond yields are soaring. This domestic crisis has the potential for global contagion because Turkey has almost $500 billion in dollar-denominated external debt, which it cannot pay if exports and tourism dry up. 

In addition, the U.S. and Turkey are in a trade war, partly due to Turkey’s detention of a U.S. minister who was traveling in Turkey. Other clashes are emerging with NATO while Turkey is warming up to Russia and Iran with regard to its interests in Syria.  In short, the Turkish economy is a mess and relations with the U.S. are near an all-time low. Still Turkey has one more rabbit to pull out of its hat. 

President Erdoğan has now declared his goal of abandoning the U.S. dollar in Turkey’s commerce with its trading partners.  Erdoğan sees a way to buy and sell with Russia and China in rubles or yuan. Turkey has also been stockpiling gold, which it can use to settle balance of payments deficits and to back up a new currency, if needed.  Pursuit of these non-dollar alternatives suggests it’s just a matter of time before Turkey closes its capital account and reneges on its dollar-denominated debt.  Standing alone, Turkey is not a huge part of the global trading and payments system. But, it could start a trend toward non-dollar transactions that other countries can follow.

The dollar is the most powerful weapon in the U.S. arsenal. The U.S. uses the dollar strategically to reward friends and punish enemies. The use of the dollar as a weapon is not limited to trade wars and currency wars, although the dollar is used tactically in those disputes. The dollar is much more powerful than that. The dollar can be used for regime change by creating hyperinflation, bank runs and domestic dissent in countries targeted by the U.S. The U.S. can depose the governments of its adversaries, or at least blunt their policies without firing a shot. The U.S. also uses the dollar to force its enemies into fronts, crude barter or the black market if they want to do business.

So you must think of the dollar in geopolitical terms, not just a unit of account. The dollar constitutes about 60% of global reserves, 80% of global payments and almost 100% of global oil transactions. Transacting on the world stage means transacting in dollars.

But importantly, the U.S. not only controls the dollar itself. It controls the dollar payments system itself. A dollar payment going from a bank in Shanghai to another bank in Sydney runs through one of these U.S.-controlled payments systems. In short, the dollar is the oxygen supply for world commerce and the U.S. can cut off your oxygen whenever it wants.

Meanwhile, U.S. economic sanctions are being applied like never before.  Current targets include North Korea, Syria, Cuba, Iran, Turkey, China, Russia, and Venezuela. Several other countries are under consideration for tariffs and sanctions or on a waiting list. These sanctions are highly effective. The Iranian economy almost imploded in 2013 under prior sanctions and is imploding against today under new sanctions imposed by President Trump. 

Yet, those policymakers in Washington imposing sanctions are ignoring the admonition, “Be careful what you wish for.” U.S. sanctions success is generating a backlash that could undermine the role of the dollar in the long-run.  For every action there is a reaction. America’s adversaries realize how vulnerable they are to dollar-based sanctions. In the short run, they have to grin and bear it. They’re fully invested in the dollar both in their reserves and in the desire of their largest companies like Gazprom (Russia) and Huawei (China) to become major global players.

But our adversaries and so-called allies are already envisioning a world where the dollar is not the major reserve and trade currency. In the longer run, Russia, China, Iran, Turkey and others are working flat-out to invent and implement nondollar transactional currencies and independent payments systems. This will not involve dead-end cryptocurrencies like bitcoin but entirely new utility tokens and cryptos. Imagine something like a putincoin and you’ll be on the right track.

China is pushing its trade counterparties to accept Chinese yuan as payment for goods and services. The yuan is a small part of global payments today (about 2%) but the yuan may get a boost as the U.S. sanctions on Iran kick in. China is Iran’s biggest customer for oil, and if U.S. sanctions prohibit dollar payments for Iranian oil, then Iran and China may have no choice but to transact in yuan.

The International Monetary Fund, IMF, has already announced efforts to put its world money, the special drawing right, SDR, on a distributed ledger. This would make the SDR a global cryptocurrency for settling balance of payments transactions among China, Russia and other IMF members, also without reliance on the dollar payments system.

Alongside the new money in cryptocurrencies, there is the oldest form of money, which is gold. The use of gold is the ideal way to avoid U.S. financial warfare. Gold is physical so it cannot be hacked. It is completely fungible (an element, atomic number 79) so it cannot be traced. Gold can be transported in sealed containers on airplanes so movements cannot be identified through wire transfer message traffic or satellite surveillance. There is good evidence that Iran currently pays for North Korean weapons technology with gold, and good reason to expect that future Chinese payments for Iranian oil will be made at least partly in gold.

Imagine a three-way trade in which North Korea sells weapons to Iran, Iran sells oil to China and China sells food to North Korea. All of these transactions can be recorded on a blockchain and netted out on a quarterly basis with the net settlement payment made in gold shipped to the party with the net balance due. That’s a glimpse of what a future nondollar payments system looks like.

Russia is the most active opponent of U.S. sanctions. Right now, Russia is being sanctioned with tariffs, account freezes, penalties and capital market bans because of its actions in Crimea and Eastern Ukraine. This has had some negative impact on the Russian economy, but Russia is fighting back.  Russia has sold off most of its holdings of U.S. Treasury securities and vastly reduced its dollar-denominated reserve holdings. At the same time, Russia has tripled its gold reserves in the past ten years and now has more gold in its official reserves than China. 

In fact, Russia is the fifth largest gold holder of any nation after the U.S., Germany, France and Italy. Relative to the size of its economy, Russia has the most gold in the world. These gold holdings insulate Russia from dollar-based sanctions and protect Russia from dollar inflation.  Why would a country put 20% of its reserves into gold unless it expected gold to be a major part of the international monetary system in the future? It wouldn’t. Russia not only expects gold to be part of the system, it is in strong position to make that happen by working with China, Turkey and Iran in what I call the new “Axis of Gold.”

No one country can erase the dollar’s advantage by itself, but collectively these actors can build a non-dollar based payments system and non-dollar reserves that escape the reach of U.S. sanctions. This movement has started small but could gain momentum suddenly and unexpectedly.  The bottom line is that the weaponized dollar will soon be a victim of its own success. 

While the U.S. was bullying the world with dollars, the world was quietly preparing a new nondollar system. The U.S. wanted diplomatic and military clout and it got it with the dollar. But as the saying goes, “Be careful what you wish for.”

          Debating Europe’s Future, Remember the Children      Cache   Translate Page      

A child in the Moria “hotspot” camp on the Greek island of Lesbos, December 2017. Parents in the camp said their children cannot access adequate healthcare. © Bill Van Esveld / Human Rights Watch, 2017.

Greek Prime Minister Alex Tsipras will “debate the future of Europe” today with the European Commission president, Jean-Claude Juncker, and European Parliament members, part of a debate series about how to improve the EU. Appropriately, it is the first day of school in Greece.

But not for all children. What does it mean for the future of Europe that Greece is failing to ensure that thousands of children will be able to sit in a classroom, but rather is warehousing them in isolated, EU-sponsored camps on the Aegean islands?

Officials have claimed that asylum seekers on the islands are “in transit” and don’t need schools, but this amounts to a policy of just wishing that thousands of children would go away.

Greece has done an abysmal job of providing education to asylum-seeking children on the islands, yet with EU encouragement it insists on keeping them there. “Aram,” a father from Kobane, Syria who had been living with his four school-age children in a camp on Lesbos for more than a year told us last summer: “Without education they lose their future, but they have not done anything wrong.”

On the mainland, the Education Ministry opened classes to help some asylum-seeking children to learn Greek, and to help those who had been out of school – often due to war or because they were forced to take dangerous journeys – catch up to their grade level.

These programs were virtually unavailable to children stuck in the government-run camps on the islands. By the end of the 2017-2018 school year, Human Rights Watch found that fewer than 400 of more than 3,000 school-age asylum-seeking children there were in school. None of the boys and girls we interviewed who did manage to go to school started the school year on time last September.

The European Commission says it has allocated €393 million in emergency assistance to Greece, an additional €322.8 million under the Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund, and €238 million more for border security. Is Brussels troubled at all that rates of school enrollment for asylum-seeking children are worse on Lesbos, Chios, and Samos than in Jordan, Lebanon, and Turkey?

Children stuck on the islands are victims of Greece’s EU-backed policy to keep asylum seekers who arrive by sea from Turkey there until their claims are adjudicated. If their asylum claims are rejected, they are supposed to be sent back to Turkey – a country that is not safe for refugees. If accepted, they are supposed to go to the mainland. All this is to happen promptly.

In fact, families are forced to wait nine months or more for an asylum interview. With new arrivals outstripping departures, the unsanitary, dangerous island camps remain badly overcrowded.

Greece, with encouragement from other EU member states, has clung tenaciously to this containment policy.  The Greek asylum service has even blocked sick children from seeking needed treatment on the mainland. “My daughter is dying in front of my eyes and I can do nothing,” one girl’s father told me.

No official can claim not to know that the containment policy is inflicting immense suffering on people. In July 2017, we documented a mental health crisis on the islands. “Camps are places where vulnerabilities are created,” an International Organization for Migration official told us. “My hope is dead since they brought me here,” a mother of four children said. A year later, Doctors Without Borders reported that conditions in Moria camp on Lesbos had deteriorated even further, to the extent that children were being retraumatized and an increasing number were having “intense panic attacks, suicidal ideations and suicide attempts.”

Greece, and the EU, will bear the costs of this policy failure for years to come. Children deprived of education are vulnerable to exploitation, hazardous child labor, and a lifetime of poverty. Their healthcare costs will be far higher than those of people with an education. Their annual income will shrink by 9 percent for every year of education they were denied.

The future of refugee children in Europe depends on the EU. And Europe’s treatment of refugee children today may hint at the type of place Europe will become tomorrow. The Greek government should end the containment policy, and in the interim, Greek schools should ensure their doors are open to all children, including those on the islands.


          Hunting in Carbon County - Scarcity to Resurgence      Cache   Translate Page      
Post #1 of 5:
              

Hunting is Carbon’s second skin.  Though we’re not unique in this regard, life here is inextricably tied to it.

For hunting reaches beyond basic sustenance, it pulls us onto the proving ground, and connects us to this land.

The comradery and the day in the woods is enough for some.  But for many, a day without something to drag out and brag about is devastating.

John Deppe shot his first deer in December 1873.  Young John was the son of Henry Deppe, a well-known Pine Swamp saw-miller.  His Hickory Run area deer dressed out at 115 pounds.  And John was just one month shy of his seventh birthday.


Escaped from Mr. Ash's Game preserve on the Mahoning Mountain: Lewis Steigerwalt, reclined front left was the owner of the hotel, post office, and farm implement business at the crossroads of Andreas, Schuylkill County, just over the Carbon County line from East Penn.  This 1923 picture of 16 buck hunters proudly displaying this fine 8 or 9-point buck is a testament to the scarcity of deer in our area at this time.  The back of the photo says "first deer shot in Andreas," certainly deer were so scarce that shooting one was a cause to take multiple poses with it.  More about this story and the men in the picture can be found in the end notes of this post.
Were these men cursed?  Many died through unfortunate circumstances, see End Notes for details.

To drink, at eve and morning;
And still the laurel blooms as bright
As in my life's glad dawning....

~Augusta Moore, from Poems of Places Anthology 31, 1876-79
(The complete poem is reprinted in the End Notes section #3.)


This is a young Snyder boy of Kresgeville
with his first buck in the early 1950s.


Today, Pennsylvanians expect to harvest a minimum 300,000+ deer per year.  Many youth have good reason to have high hopes of filling their scopes with that magical chestnut-brown hair.

But John Deppe’s first deer in 1873 was rather significant.  The harvests in those days were exceedingly slimmer than those in our modern age. 

This is the first of three installments that will examine the record of big game hunting in our area over the last 140 years.








The Rabenold-Finsel gang of Spring Hill Mountain
 29 November 2004.
   Even a button-buck is cause for celebration, especially
when it's the only deer shot that year in camp.
A son's first deer is a special type of pride for fathers.  That buck
season was one of the many exceptionally warm ones in recent years.





















In the Beginning

You have to begin at the start of it all, when man first evolved into tribes to see the evolution of this special rite of passage.

From Colonial times up into our nationhood, many area farmers were known as “long hunters.”  The most famous one in this area was perhaps Philip Ginter who discovered coal in Summit Hill in 1791 while out hunting deer.

Hunters like Ginter were farmers first.  And once all of their crops were turned in for the fall, they turned their attention to hunting. 

Not just for a few days mind you.  A “long” time entailed, two and three weeks.  They’d start in late November or early December and would promise to be home for Christmas.  Thus our modern day season was set.
Long Days in Camp - Even into the "modern" era of hunting
did men hunt "long."  This hunter, a patron of John Snyder's
"Jonas Hotel" speaks of his glum life back at work after
17 days hunting in Jonas, just over the Carbon County line.  Many of the
patrons of these old hotels were doctors and professionals from the city.
Many more letters and pictures from these men will be posted
in the next installment of "Hunting in Carbon County." (A link
will appear here once it is finished and posted.)


Ginter, like many small farmers of the Mahoning Valley, and valleys just like it, looked for the “buck season” to help expand their land holdings.

Their goal wasn’t only to salt away venison for the winter, but also to gather as many deer skins as possible.  Each skin garnered a price of $1.  Hence the term “buck skin” came to be applied and the male deer forever known as a “buck.”

In those days 100-acres of farm land could be had for $100.  Some hunters were known to expand their farms at 100-acre clips every few years mainly from money for buck skins.

One of the most famous of all area hunters, an almost mythical man, was Jeremiah “Old Jerry” Greening of “Rattlesnake,” a hamlet of Blooming Grove, Pike County. 

His farm was just northeast over Monroe County from Carbon and he was known to have killed “upward of 500 deer” at a time when deer were much more scarce than they are today.

Jerry farmed and had many sons who also hunted.  Many of his exploits were told and retold all over the country in syndicated newspaper stories in the 1870s and into the 1890s.  More will be told of this man in the “Tall Tales” section of Post #3 in this series.

It could be said that modern deer conservation started in Carbon with Josiah White.  He was no doubt the first to start a game preserve here in Carbon though he wasn’t the last.

White took up residence here in the winter of 1817/18 to build the “Stone Turnpike,” the origin of the Switchback Railroad.  He was the progenitor of the “the Old Company,” the Lehigh Coal and Navigation Company.

By 1828, he built the first of the grand homes in what is today Jim Thorpe.  He called it “Parkhurst” where Kemmerer Park is today. 

Even before he retrieved his family from his home outside Philadelphia, White brought his eighty-year old mother here.  And before he called for his children and wife, he built Carbon’s first game preserve for deer, elk, and peacocks to entertain his soon to arrive children.

He was not the last to do so.  Asa Packer had one too.  And so did T. A. Snyder, the builder of Flagstaff Park, the inter-urban trolley line, and the incomparable Colonial Court Mansion in Lehighton. 
Descendants of Henry Melber still do two things as all
the successive Mauch Chunk Melbers did: Work as undertakers
and hunt, and not necessarily in that order.  Those who know Tom
and his son Nate Melber will attest there are no truer sportsmen
than they are.  For more on this story and how the Melbers
were fully exonerated, see the End Notes of this post.

One upstanding hunting family in Carbon was once wrongly accused of hunting a deer from Snyder’s preserve.

The first evening of Doe Camp at Little Acres
Farm, Kresgeville, 15 December 1959.

The men and boys of Little Acres Farm - Doe Season December 1959 - Dreaming of sugar plums and venison.
There were many efforts by the state in these days that we take for granted today, such as the game lands. 

In July of 1914 Dr. Joseph Kalbfus and Dr. Penrose of the State Game Commission visited Penn Forest township to select and declare a site for a game preserve, to be stocked with deer from Michigan. 
Dr. Kalbfus not only visited Penn Forest to set up
a deer preserve area, but also implemented the re-stocking
of deer from Trexler's Preserve to counties
in need of deer: Lehigh, Potter, Elk, Berks,
Wyoming, and others in Jan 1917.































The men concluded that “few places in the state afford such an excellent place for raising deer than in Penn Forest Township.”

People went to great effort to stock deer in this area.  In the fall of 1890, Henry O. Hughes of Carbon Hill, Alabama, helped to restock deer here by shipping two first-year fawns to his father-in-law William Evans in Slatington.

The article said the deer still had their spots, which the newspaper account compared to the spots of a leopard.  This evidence suggests that the average citizen did not have first-hand knowledge of what a young deer looked like, evidence of their rarity at that time.

In 1891, the “famous Alligator Club of Emmaus” sold their three “handsome” deer to Jacob Reichard of Haymaker’s Island on the Lehigh, near Allentown.  

“Two of the deer were bred in captivity, and all of them are very fine, and as thoroughly domesticated as house cats.  That they will prove a great attraction to visitors to the island cannot be doubted.”

These two articles provide a curious glimpse of life around white-tail deer here and provides ample evidence that deer were considered a rare animal indeed.


Colonel Harry Trexler
This hearty buck was shot between Trachsville
and Little Gap, where Russell Bollinger was known
to hunt.  Shown here is Russell's first wife
Marian (George) who died of cancer
in 1938 at the age of 28.  


No one embodies the era more than Colonel Harry Trexler.  A self-made millionaire of the Lehigh Valley, Trexler made a fortune in the Portland cement business.  But he was also a logger, purchasing thousands of acres of timbering land.

The present day boundaries of Hickory Run State Park were purchased by Trexler.  He remodeled the former Samuel Gould homestead and entertained guests with apple-jack punch and fishing jaunts to nearby Sandy Spring.

The Gould property is adjacent to the Hickory Run cemetery where members of the Gould family are buried along with other logging and sawmill families of the area.  Among them, those who drown in the flash flood caused by the breach of a 70-acre sawmill dam in October of 1849.

Trexler planned on donating the land for public recreation.  He said, “We live only a short distance from the anthracite coal region where there is scarcely a blade of grass growing…”  The area lacked deer habitat and Trexler was fixed on improving it.

He wanted men and their families to have a place for outdoor recreation, “rather than have them loafing around pool rooms and saloons fomenting anarchism, I would like to see Hickory Run developed into a state park.”

Several state agencies (the Game Commission, Fish Commission and the Department of Forest to name a few) commenced campaigns to receive the park from Trexler’s will and trust.

Trexler passed away in a car accident in 1935, and oddly, had taken the lands out of his will due to the bureaucratic wrangling.  Eventually, trustees of his estate oversaw the land transfer into the park and hunting lands we have today.

One recipient of Trexler’s will was Joseph Heimbach.  The Heimbach farm is the last large farmstead, on both sides of Route 534, after Hawk Falls and before the camping area.

Heimbach or his surviving wife, would receive an annual salary from the estate to the amount of $500 per year.  Heimbach may have been some sort of caretaker or overseer of Trexler’s land or perhaps payment for the right of way through his farm.
The smallest 6-pointer ever?  Another deer shot by Russell Bollinger
of Trachsville sometime in the 1930s.  His father was Jonas Bollinger who
was a nephew of John and Charles Snyder of Jonas Hotel.  The hotel
was started by Jonas Snyder around 1850.  He had two boys (John and Charles)
who ran the hotel from 1900 until 1950.  Russell's grandmother Emaline
Bollinger was one of four of Jonas Snyder's daughters.  More on the Jonas
Hotel will be written in Post #2 and Post #4.

The Bizarre and the Curious

Colonel Trexler also endowed a large game preserve just south of Carbon in Lehigh County.   In March 1911, a trainload of wild game (forty does, ten bucks, and three buffaloes) were unloaded at Colonel Trexler’s game preserve. 

The three rail cars delivered the animals from a preserve in New Hampshire as well as ones captured from the “Blue Mountain Forest.”
January 1917 - How rare was wild game at
this time?  This Allentown Democrat article
discusses released 8 deer, rabbits, and one
wild turkey from the Philadelphia Zoo.  One.


The train arrived in Coplay at 8:00 PM March 2nd.  Two and sometimes three crated deer fit into one wagon.  However, each buffalo, weighing about 1,500 pounds, would each take up their own wagon en route to the preserve.

A total of forty wagons were used to haul them the three miles from the station, the “menagerie of wagons resembling a circus procession never seen in this county.”

Lehighton also had a game preserve, created by William Ash in 1910.  Many are familiar with the section of land west of Baer Memorial Park known as “Ashtown.”  Ash’s home still stands there, a grand example of the Sears & Roebuck catalog homes of that time.

Ash’s preserve was located on the Mahoning Mountain near what is today known as “Graverville.”

in Kunkletown. 

The first deer shot in the Andreas area in a generation was actually a buck that escaped from Ash’s preserve.  (Note the picture above.)


 “Scarce and Scattered” - 1880-1930

In this time period, lumber was king in Pennsylvania and Trexler was only one of many Pennsylvanians who started their fortunes in lumber. 

Williamsport was at one time the lumber capital of the world.  In 1899 Pennsylvania reached its peak of annual lumber production with 2.3 billion board feet of lumber harvested. 

It made many in the state into “millionaires,” the moniker for Williamsport High School today.  Today, Pennsylvania boasts of 59% or 16.7 million acres of forested land.

By 1900 there were only nine to 9-13 million acres of forest in the state.  Compare this number to the estimated 28 million acres back to William Penn’s time in the 1680s. 
The squeeze on big game was on.

The Great Pine Swamp of northern Carbon County was filled with lumber operations.  The plentiful old growth hemlock trees were cleared, feeding the stave mills for barrel making and the slab bark sent to the many leather tanneries, Lehigh Tannery being one of the largest in the world.

Indeed the area economy revolved around timber and hunting.  Carbon’s place at the hub of the world-wide distribution of anthracite coal placed its own pressures on the woodlands. 

Canal boat captains would work the waterways all summer long.  And once December brought the first freeze-over to the slack water, the men would commence hauling logs out of the Pine Swamp to be used in boat repair and boat building at the Weissport boat yard.

There is some conflicting evidence over just how rare deer had become in the state.  There is no question that the number of deer and big game was extremely small compared to today, through loss of habitat alone.

Six deer in Weissport - Most likely shot in Potter County, Reuben Small's favored spot in the 1930s.  Reuben, from Massachusetts, met and married Lehighton's Esther Koch at business school, forming Lehighton's
"Small and Koch Dairy" in the 1920s.  

(Click here from more on this dairy and other early Lehighton businesses.
The Small and Koch segment is near the end of this hyperlink.)

This Weissport scene is sometime in the early 1940s, as the McCall Bridge in the background was completed around 1938.
Scarce and Scattered

Scarce they were indeed, making folks curious about wild game in those days.
Hotels owners used wild game as prizes and to grab attention at this time with “old-fashioned hustling matches” that attracted crowds and brought in money.

Fred Horlacher (before he brewed his famous Allentown beer) was a tavern owner in “Bowmansville” (Bowmanstown).  On February 1879 he held a match and social hop.  There were a variety of prizes, but the one sure to draw a crowd was the top prize: a “tame bear.”

Similarly, Moses Rabenold’s Hotel (near Emmaus) held a “splendid year old buck deer, just now getting his first set of antlers” as a prize at his hotel.  Surely, wild animals were of such scarcity and yet held in high esteem by the public to make such offerings an attraction to the average citizen. 

Perhaps the fact that a four-point buck found in Albrightsville in 1892 best attests to just how rare deer were at this time.  An article in the local paper stated how Mr. Dench discovered this buck skull and rack and how it was the talk of the area. 

Again, this was only a four-point deer.  He didn’t shoot it.  He found it.  Would this make news today?

Evidence that deer were curious to people and therefore somewhat rare, can be found in Lehighton’s druggist T. D. Thomas.

Last Daesh redoubt under attack in Syria Iran, Russia, Turkey meet UN Syria envoy Foreign extremists in Idlib in last stand
           Comment on Nazi murder plot in Sweden by petrel41       Cache   Translate Page      
NO-ONE can dress up a far-right general election vote of 17.6 per cent as good news, but nor should the disappointment felt by Sweden’s Democrat fascists in suits be ignored. The misnamed Democrats had hoped the result would be still better, claiming that they could score as much as 30 per cent and replace the free-market conservative Moderate Party as the second party. Even mainstream opinion polls suggested the party, with its roots in Keep Sweden Swedish nazi extremism, could hit 24 per cent. The Moderates lost ground, as did the country’s largest party, the Social Democrats, but, alongside the Democrats’ surge from 12.9 per cent to 17.6, the Left party, which polled below 6 per cent in the 2006, 2010 and 2014 general elections, rose to 8 per cent. Its 28 seats, alongside the Greens’ depleted 15 and 101 for the Social Democrats, ought to ensure a continuation of Social Democrat Prime Minister Stefan Lofven’s government, whether as head of the erstwhile Red-Green Alliance or in some other guise. Both the Social Democrats and the Moderates borrowed elements from the Democrats’ anti-refugee programme in a forlorn attempt to spike the fascists’ rise. Yet the standing of Lofven’s party was assisted by principled anti-fascist activity backed by the Left, especially in the major cities. Where the right had previously controlled two of the main three cities, Stockholm and Gothenburg, all three, including Malmo, are now dominated by the Social Democrats, with the Left outscoring the Democrats in the capital. It is theoretically possible that the Moderates could, through a dirty deal with the Democrats, replace Lofven, but this is less likely than it would have been had the far-right carried the day with the kind of figures expected beforehand. Introducing far-right parties into government has already happened in northern Europe, specifically in Finland and Norway, mirroring stronger support for right-wing extremism in Italy, Hungary, Slovakia, Germany and elsewhere. This is partially explained by pundits as a reaction to governments accepting growing numbers of refugees from Syria, Afghanistan and various African countries heading to Europe through Libya. Yet the numbers of refugees arriving in Sweden and Germany or even Greece and Italy are as nothing compared to those fleeing imperialist wars and their consequences in Afghanistan, Syria and Iraq to Turkey, Lebanon or Jordan. Mainstream parties across Europe legitimise far-right parties’ programmes by giving credence, by imitation, to their ludicrous claims that taking in relatively small numbers of refugees undermines a country’s cultural identity or threatens to spark a crime wave. As ever, they proclaim personal opposition to racism and xenophobia but ascribe their bigotry to demands from “the public” — the working class. While some working people do indeed succumb to such negative phenomena, the reality in Sweden, as in all European states where a far-right surge has been witnessed, is that anti-racist opposition is co-ordinated by the left and the organised labour movement. So-called “moderate” centre-left/centre-right parties routinely replacing each other in government with no discernible qualitative change in policies bear huge responsibility for alienation expressed by working people faced by a neoliberal austerity agenda, whatever party is in office. Exploiting such alienation is easy for those seeking to divide people on the basis of skin colour, nationality or religion to assist their power-seeking ambitions. Sweden’s overall election result provides a negative example, but the opposite is true of the Left’s role in campaigning not only against xenophobia but for a socialist alternative to austerity. https://www.morningstaronline.co.uk/article/far-right-breakthrough-prevented-in-sweden

  • Technology-research company Comparitech found that Japan is the most cost-effective country to use Netflix in.
  • Japan has 6,000 movies and TV shows, the most of any of the 24 countries featured in the study.
  • The cheapest country to use Netflix in is Turkey, where the service costs $3.27 a month.
  • The most expensive country to use Netflix in is Denmark, and the least cost-effective country is Norway.

 

If you want to get the most bang for your buck for Netflix, you might want to live in Japan.

According to a new study from technology-research company Comparitech, Japan is the most cost-effective country to use Netflix in.

Comparitech found this by looking at how many movies and TV shows are available on Netflix in 24 countries, based on figures from the unofficial Netflix Online Global Search (uNoGS), and dividing that number by the cost per month of Netflix in each country.

netflixComparitech

Japan has nearly 6,000 shows and movies — the most of any of the other countries — and costs $5.86 in US dollars, which makes each title $0.0010. Following Japan was Canada, Brazil, the US, and India to make up the top five most cost-effective countries.

The US has the second-largest library of movies and TV shows.

netflixComparitech

The least cost-effective country to use Netflix was Norway, where 3,300 titles are available and the monthly cost is $10.95.

netflixComparitech

But though Japan was most cost-effective, it doesn't have the cheapest absolute cost of Netflix per month.

That distinction goes to Turkey, where users pay 15.99 TL, or $3.27, a month. That's nearly 60% cheaper than in the US or UKFollowing Turkey are Argentina, Brazil, Japan, and Mexico as the top five cheapest places to use Netflix.

netflixComparitech

On an absolute basis, Netflix is the most expensive in Denmark, at $12.37.

Runtime: 80 minutes

Directed by: Brad F. Grinter/Steve Hawkes

Starring: Steve Hawkes, Dana Cullivan, Randy Grinter, Heather Hughes, Larry Wright

From: Sampson Motion Picture Company

If you are not familiar with the movie, wait until you hear the plot: 

It was not the original plan to see this motion picture last night; suddenly spotting this on Amazon Prime meant this had to be seen immediately. Who knows if it'll still be there come Thanksgiving (the same goes for the copies on YouTube) and besides, I've actually watched this bizarro film before, albeit many years ago.

What exactly do you say about a gory outsider piece of cinema which somehow is also pro-Christian and anti-drug? A buff dude named Herschell (appropriate, as there are a few moments where you get H. Gordon Lewis-esque bloodletting) falls into the wrong crowd and among other things, he becomes a fiend for marijuana and works on a turkey farm. He eats tainted turkey meat and well... TURNS INTO A TURKEY MONSTER. Considering this is a cheap flick that is real rough when it comes to filmmaking craft & skill-and acting to, BTW-this means “the lead wears a mascot head of a turkey” and is on the warpath, going after drug dealers and random young women.

I appreciate the insanity on display yet among all the unintentional laughs scattered throughout this movie can be a drag to get through. Memorable in the wrong ways is director Brad F. Grinter occasionally appearing on camera, and judging by the wood paneling in the background, he did this in his basement. He offers occasional commentary on the proceedings, but it is nonsensical babblings so it does not exactly illuminate what is going on. Best of all, as he is never not seen with a cigarette in hand, no shock that in his final appearance he has a coughing fit... yet Grinter the director did not have himself as an actor do that take over again?

This is another one of those movies extremely difficult to rate; I guess I'll go with two stars and move on with my day.

This recipe I am sharing today is not only very tasty, but also quite family friendly, simple to make and fairly healthy, especially if you use the leanest ground turkey you can buy and a low fat cheddar.  It is also very economical!  So its a winner all round! 



I confess that I am not overly fond of ground beef. It goes back to my childhood I guess.  Mom always bought really cheap ground beef. It was fatty and full of gristle and sometimes bits of bone.  If there was any gristle or bone in it, it always seemed to end up on my plate and as soon as it hit my teeth I would be gagging! Very unpleasant. 



I do eat ground beef now, but not very often and I always grind my own when I do. Did you know that when you are buying ground beef at the shops, the meat in your pack can come from several animals, but if you buy a piece of beef and trim it, then grind it yourself, you know for sure it came from just one. 


We I actually prefer ground turkey to ground beef. Its lower in fat and much better for you.  Its actually on the list of what are considered to be Super Foods.


The protein in Turkey alone could make it a Super Food,  but actually this lean meat has much more to offer. It is also chock full of nutrients, particularly niacin, selenium, vitamins B6 and B12, and zinc. These nutrients are heart-healthy and also valuable in helping to lower the risk for cancer.


Turkey is also one of the leanest protein foods and is low in calories, making it an excellent healthy food choice. The selenium in it  has been shown to inhibit cancer development, improve the immune system, and aid in the metabolism of our thyroid hormone. 

We love turkey and turkey, it seems  . . .  loves us!


This is really a very easy bake to make.  Turkey is browned in a pan along with some finely chopped onion. (Just spray the pan with some low fat cooking spray.) I like to add a few herbs and some salt and black pepper for more flavor.  You could also add chopped celery if you wanted to.


This gets spread in a baking dish and topped with a layer of grated cheddar cheese.  I use cheddar because it is a favourite of ours and packs a lot of flavour in, so you don't need as much cheese as you would another type. I use a lower fat cheddar. It works beautifully.


You sprinkle the cheese over the cooked turkey in a baking dish and then beat together some baking mix, milk and eggs and pour that over top.  Then it is as simple as popping it into a hot oven and baking it until it is done.  Presto, you have a delicious entree that the family will love.  I often add a layer of chopped cooked vegetables between the layer of turkey and the cheese.  Also, very good and healthy too! (I make my own homemade baking mix.  The recipe is below.)

preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes until cooked through and the cheese
has started to turn golden brown.  Remove from the oven and let stand
for several minutes before cutting into squares to serve.

Note
 - If desired you can add a thin layer of cooked vegetables over the
turkey before sprinkling the cheese over top. Chopped broccoli is nice as are
peas/corn/carrots,  or chopped cooked spinach,etc.

          Rancher wins legal battle after bald eagle attacks kill 160,000 chickens      Cache   Translate Page      
A Georgia rancher’s battle against bald eagle attacks on his pasture-raised chickens continues, but he’s won a skirmish against the federal government. Bluffton rancher Will Harris, who’s led a crusade for a more ethical treatment of livestock from his fifth-generation farm in southwest Georgia, said he now expects to receive compensation for some of the 160,000 chickens he’s lost in recent years to America’s flying, and hungry, symbol of freedom. The 63-year-old rancher said he’s lost more than $2 million in poultry to the eagles, who now live year-round on his 3,200-acre property, White Oak Pastures, the largest USDA certified-organic property in Georgia. Reached by phone, Harris said he will likely receive the maximum compensation allowed, $125,000, for each year he proves he suffered losses, and may also recover an estimated $100,000 in legal fees. Harris said the compensation won’t “make or break” his $20-plus million-a-year in revenue operation, but the ruling may prove critical for smaller farms. “The ruling is a win not just for us – but for all small farms everywhere. At White Oak Pastures, we are committed to animal welfare, regenerative farming and empowering and supporting our local economy,” said Harris. “To survive at a time when conventional producers dominate the market, independent ranchers rely on equitable treatment by laws often written for big agricultural operations.” Harris started letting his chickens roam freely in 2010 and by 2012 had a flock of 100,000 birds, mostly chickens but also smaller numbers of turkeys, guinea hens and ducks. It didn’t take long for the eagle-eyed eagles to notice. Soon, the federally-protected raptors were destroying up to 30 percent of his flock. After numerous, unsuccessful efforts to divert the birds of prey from preying on poultry -- noise machines, tarps and other measures were tried -- White Oak Pastures applied for Livestock Indemnity Program benefits from the Farm Service Administration of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. “Years of disputes” followed, said Harris, and, in 2017, the FSA denied White Oak Pasture’s claims, saying the losses were not proven. White Oak Pastures appealed the decision. Following an extended period of appeals from both FSA and White Oak Pastures, a ruling issued in August said the FSA acted improperly when it denied White Oak Pasture’s request for compensation...MORE

Descubren un tarro de crema para los ojos en la tumba de un soldado de hace 2.200 años

En la antigua ciudad de  Aizanoi (Turquía), patrimonio mundial de la UNESCO desde 2012, ha tenido lugar un extraño descubrimiento. En el interior de una tumba se han encontrado los restos de un soldado que vivió hace 2.200 años y que fue enterrado con lo que, según creen los arqueólogos, es un frasco antiguo de «crema para los ojos».Según informa la agencia Anadolu, Elif Özer (izquierda) la arqueólogo al cargo de la excavación, sostiene que los restos humanos hallados en la necrópolis de la ciudad fueron cremados y enterrados con productos que pudiesen serles de utilidad en el más allá. Los científicos, que creen que la crema se empleaba para tratar la sequedad de los ojos, sostienen que la familia debió considerar que esta sustancia le sería de utilidad al difunto.«Sabemos que este frasco se usó para contener crema de ojos en tiempos de la Antigua Roma», dijo Özer, y agregó que la planta cruda que se empleó con fines terapéuticos para la sequedad ocular hasta finales del siglo XVIII, y que se habría utilizado para la elaboración del ungüento, y que es del género lycium, rica en vitama A, la cual se podía encontrar desde la costa sur de Turquía a China y la India. De hecho, los tratamientos basados ​​en la baya de goji pueden haber sido un fenómeno muy extendido en el mundo antiguo, posiblemente originados en la medicina china .«Fuentes antiguas dicen que los soldados romanos en Egipto usaron crema para ojos para la sequedad ocular. Encontramos este tarro en la tumba de un hombre que se cree que es un soldado», agregó la arqueólogo.A pesar de que el contenido del recipiente (izquierda) con el que fue enterrado el soldado se ha perdido después de pasar miles de años enterrado, el tarro de crema para los ojos se encuentra en exhibición en el Museo de Arqueología de Kutahya.Fuentes: abc.es | dailysabah.com | smithsonianmag.com | 12 de septiembre de 2018Ver más

          China's pockets may not be deep enough to bail out emerging markets      Cache   Translate Page      

AP_18232179553108

  • China has extended easy credit to vulnerable countries.
  • But its pockets are not as deep as they once were, analysts say.
  • Lending to emerging markets could also face political backlash.

When Malaysia canceled two large-scale infrastructure projects backed by China last month, Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad said he was afraid the country could go bankrupt. As leader of a government that has tried to crowdfund its $250 billion of debt, that seems to be a reasonable concern.

"It’s all about borrowing too much money, which we cannot afford and cannot repay because we don’t need these projects in Malaysia," Mahathir told the New York Times in interviews about the projects, a rail link and a natural gas pipeline that had a collective price tag of more than $22 billion.

Malaysia is just the latest debt-ridden country to have been courted by Chinese lenders, a potential alternative to International Monetary Fund programs that can come with sweeping stipulations.

For example, China is Venezuela's largest creditor, lending the collapsing country more than $62 billion over the past decade. And just last week, President Xi Jinping offered countries in Africa another $60 billion in aid and loans.

But throwing life lines to emerging markets could be impractical for China in the long run, Nomura economists led by Ting Lu wrote in a recent note.

"China is still financially healthy, but its pockets are not as deep as they were," Lu wrote.

In the first three months of 2018, China ran its first current account-deficit since before joining the World Trade Organization in 2001. It rebounded by the second-quarter, but the setback raised questions about whether current-account deficits could occur more frequently in the future.

China's foreign-exchange reserves have fallen to roughly $3.1 trillion from $4 trillion in 2014. Meanwhile, hard-currency external debt has surged, with corporate offshore dollar bond issuance up about $500 billion during that same period.

"As China’s economy is becoming increasingly constrained by its own production capacity, EM imports from China financed by RMB borrowings would likely squeeze China’s exports, resulting, in our opinion, in a headline trade surplus that could overstate actual FX inflows, ultimately impairing China’s FX reserves," Lu wrote. 

Lending to emerging markets could also face political backlash as China faces an economic slowdown and as a trade war with the US continues to escalate. As Bloomberg Opinion columnist Shuli Ren recently wrote, "China’s shaky domestic economy may mean that it’s no longer politically viable for Beijing to keep being so generous."

For now though, China appears comfortable cozying up to emerging markets. The country been looking to expand economic ties abroad through its Belt and Road Initiative, a trillion-dollar investment venture that has infrastructure investment plans spanning across more than 60 countries.

A recent Pentagon report found the initiative is designed to shape interests to align with Beijing and to avoid confrontation and criticism. Involved countries could "develop economic dependence on Chinese capital, which China could leverage to achieve its interests," it said.

"They know that when they lend big sums of money to a poor country, in the end they may have to take the project for themselves," Mahathir told the Times.

Rabari Tribe Rabari people are a mystery. Their life style is totally different from any other tribe. Nowadays many foreigners do research on Rabari. A Rabari can be nomadic or Semi-nomadic. Most of the time, they wander with their herds. In Kutch, there are about 2500 to 3000 Rabari families. Out of them 70% are nomads and move with their herds to Gujarat, Orissa, Maharashtra and Karnataka in search of fodder and water. Originally Rabaris came from Jaisalmer. Accordingly to one expert, Rabaris came to Kutch from Afghanistan through Baluchistan. Some expert`s believe that they came from Sindh. There are two types of Rabari tribal sect namely Vagadias are found in the eastern Kutch while Dhebarias are mainly found in Anjar taluka. Dhebarias are the biggest percentage of these. Their main village is Midialo in Anjar Taluka, Nearly 800 families live in this small village. There are different costumes and dresses in sub castes, for women. The white dress is common to all Rabari men. The woman wears black cloth because black wool is wastage. However, the Rabaris believe that the colour black is sad. Rabaris are illiterate. They have blind faith in religion. Their chief is called Bhopas. They are nature lovers. They worship, Mataji Sikotara, Momaya, Loladi, Bhed, Vankol, Amba, Khodiar, Hinglaj. Hinglaj Yatra is important to all Rabaris. They go to his shrine by foot and if some one dies on the way then a memorial stone are places with his name in his native village. Rabari men respect women. Women do house work; shopping and they sell their goods. Men are mostly in the desert with their sheep and camels. Rabari do not trust doctors and only use Ayurvedic medicines. These Rabaris who are settled in villages decorate their house with cow dung. In the cow dung they make designs of Futli, Faniari, Scorpio, Nag, Camel, Mango, tree, Sudo and Kanudo. Rabari women do very interesting embroidery toran, thela, popat, blouse, gagra and also decorations for camels. Some women do bead work. Their houses are spotless. They usually live in groups. The different tribal groups that now live in Kutch have migrated there from countries as diverse as present day Pakistan, Afghanistan, Russia, Turkey, Iran, and other areas in the Middle East and Central Asia. The textiles of each of these groups evolved through necessity as portable vessels, furnishings, and items of clothing. Each community and tribal group has its own lexicon of motifs and embroidery stitches. Other craft techniques, such as batik and beading, have been imported into Kutch through sea trade with other countries.

          Previo y horarios del Rally de Turquía del WRC 2018      Cache   Translate Page      
previo-horarios-rally-turquia-wrc-2018-2

Con un calendario realmente estable, no es fácil ver una prueba nueva en el WRC. Quizá por ello, el Rally de Turquía ha generado una gran expectación. Bien es cierto que la prueba tiene un pasado y que desde 2003 a 2010 se disputó en la región de Antalya. Sin embargo, la nueva cita en el país otomano es completamente diferente a la original. No obstante, la prueba se desarrolla en las cercanías de Marmaris y promete una combinación de tramos técnicos con sección rápidas, así como un calor sofocante y unos tramos de tierra árida que pondrán a prueba las mecánicas.

Es evidente que el Rally de Turquía tiene una historia en la que confluyen grandes nombres con un denominador bastante común, Citroën Racing. No obstante, de las diez primeras ediciones de la cita turca, sólo seis fueron puntuables para el WRC y en cuatro de ellas la victoria fue para la marca francesa. Carlos Sainz ganó en 2003, mientras que Sébastien Loeb ganó en 2004, 2005 y 2010, siendo el piloto más laureado de esta prueba. Marcus Grönholm y Mirkko Hirvonen también saben lo que es ganar en esta prueba, ambos a los mandos del Ford Focus RS WRC.

El Rally de Turquía se divide 17 tramos que suman un total de 321 kilómetros contra el crono y que arrancan con una pequeña súper especial en la jornada del jueves. Con un esquema muy reconocible, pilotos y equipos se enfrentarán durante la etapa del viernes a un bucle de tres tramos que completarán en dos ocasiones. Los tramos de 'Çetibeli', 'Ula' y 'Çiçekli' suman 72,42 kilómetros, por lo que la primera jornada tendrá casi 144 kilómetros competitivos. En este aspecto, cabe mirar con lupa las dos pasadas por 'Çetibeli', ya que se trata del tramo más largo del rally con 38,1 kilómetros.

previo-horarios-rally-turquia-wrc-2018-2

Con el mismo esquema de tres tramos por bucle, la jornada del sábado puede ser clave en la lucha por la victoria. En este aspecto, los promotores del Rally de Turquía han apostado otra vez por la misma fórmula, ya que el tramo de 'Yesilbelde' abre ambos bucles y cuenta con más de 34 kilómetros contra el crono. La prueba termina con la etapa del domingo compuesta por cuatro tramos que apenas alcanzan los 35 kilómetros cronometrados. La única especial que se repite en el último día es la de 'Marmaris', tramo que además hace las veces de Power Stage.

Como en cualquier prueba nueva que se precie, una de las primeras claves son las notas. Con todo, el Rally de Turquía es mucho más y teniendo en cuenta que se esperan temperaturas cercanas a los 35º C, la resistencia de pilotos y mecánicas será también fundamental. A esto hay que sumar la propia dureza del recorrido con especiales rotas, reviradas y plagadas de piedras que pueden provocar más de un pinchazo. En este aspecto, la elección de neumáticos será clave en una prueba en la que Michelin pone a disposición 32 gomas duras H4 y 16 del compuesto medio M6, teniendo que elegir los pilotos 32 ruedas en total.

A estos factores hay que sumar el polvo en suspensión y el tradicional factor limpieza que afectará en gran medida a los pilotos que luchan por el título durante la etapa del viernes. Thierry Neuville, encargado de abrir pista y recién renovado por Hyundai, se encontrará tramos sucios y con poco grip, al igual que le sucederá a Sébastien Ogier y Ott Tänak. Los tres son los grandes favoritos para conseguir la victoria en un Rally de Turquía en la que la principal novedad entre los pilotos prioritarios es el regreso de Hayden Paddon al tercer Hyundai i20 WRC Coupé en sustitución de Dani Sordo.

previo-horarios-rally-turquia-wrc-2018-2

Aunque Neuville, Ogier y Tänak acaparan todas las miradas, la condición de prueba nueva hace que el Rally de Turquía pueda contar con algún 'outsider'. Esapekka Lappi y Jari-Matti Latvala se manejan bien en este tipo de terrenos, al igual que Elfyn Evans y Teemu Suninen, cargado este último de confianza por su rol cada vez más asentado en M-Sport. En Citroën contarán con Mads Ostberg y Craig Breen para intentar rascar un buen resultado en un país de gratos recuerdos para la marca. Además, Khalid Al-Qassimi se suma al equipo con la tercera unidad del Citroën C3 WRC.

La lucha en WRC2 promete, una vez más, ser intensa. No obstante, Skoda Motorsport pone toda la carne en el asador con la presencia de Pontus Tidemand y Jan Kopecký, grandes favoritos a la victoria en la batalla que mantienen ambos por el título de la categoría. A pesar de ellos, en Turquía pilotos como Kajetan Kajetanowicz, Simone Tempestini o Chris Ingram lo pueden hacer realmente bien. Al margen de los pilotos locales, el único vehículo R5 con presencia española es el Skoda Fabia R5 de Benito Guerra, toda vez que el mexicano cuenta con el apoyo de Borja Rozada a su diestra.

Especial atención merece el Junior WRC en Turquía, ya que el certamen llega a su cita final y eso implica que tiene un valor doble. Trece pilotos se juegan el último triunfo de la temporada, con Emil Bergkvist como piloto encargado de defender el liderato. El sueco tiene una ventaja de 14 puntos sobre su compatriota Denis Radström. El francés Jean-Baptiste Franceschi es el otro gran candidato al título, aunque el francés deberá esperar un fallo de sus dos rivales para conquistar el Junior WRC. El turco Bugra Banaz será el único piloto de la categoría que compita en casa.

          Turkey's Latest Power Grab: A Naval Base In Cyprus?      Cache   Translate Page      

Authored by Debalina Ghoshal via The Gatestone Institute,

  • The possibility of a Turkish naval base on Cyprus does not bode well for the chances of a Cyprus reunification deal, particularly after the breakdown of the July 2017 peace talks, which were suspended when "Turkey had refused to relinquish its intervention rights on Cyprus or the presence of troops on the island."

  • Turkey has 30,000 soldiers stationed on Cyprus, the northern part of which it has illegally occupied since 1974.

  • "If Greek-Turkish tensions escalate, the possibility of another ill-timed military provocation could escalate with them... Moreover, such a conflict might open up an even greater opportunity for Russian interference." - Lawrence A. Franklin.

Turkey's Naval Forces Command has "submitted a proposal to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs stating that Turkey should establish a naval base in the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus," according to Turkey's strongly pro-Erdogan daily, Yeni Safak, which recently endorsed the proposal for the base in an article entitled, "Why Turkey should establish a naval base in Northern Cyprus."

"The base will enable the protection of Northern Cyprus' sovereignty as well as facilitate and fortify Turkey's rights and interests in the Eastern Mediterranean, preventing the occupation of sea energy fields, and strengthening Turkey's hand in the Cyprus peace process talks."

Having a naval base in northern Cyprus would also strengthen the self-proclaimed "Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus," which is recognized only by Turkey. Cyprus is strategically important: a naval base there would give Turkey easier access to the Eastern Mediterranean's international trade routes and greater control over the vast undersea energy resources around Cyprus. In the past, Turkey has blocked foreign vessels from drilling for these resources; in June, Turkey began its own exploration of the island's waters for gas and oil.

This is not the first time that Turkey has set its sights on the area's resources. In 2014, Ankara dispatched surveillance vessels and warships to Cyprus's Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) to search for hydrocarbons. This incident took place just before the leaders of Greece, Cyprus and Egypt deepened their an energy-cooperation, "freezing Turkey out." As soon as the accord was signed, Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades blasted "Turkey's provocative actions," saying that they "do not just compromise the peace talks [between Greek and Turkish Cypriots]... [but] also affect security in the eastern Mediterranean region."

At the time, UN-brokered reunification negotiations, which had been renewed after a long hiatus, ended unsuccessfully yet again, as a result of Turkey's search for hydrocarbons in the EEZ. According to a November 2014 report in the Guardian:

"Turkey's decision to dispatch a research vessel into disputed waters last month not only resulted in talks being broken off but has exacerbated the row over drilling rights."

The possibility of a Turkish naval base does not bode well for the chances of a Cyprus reunification deal, particularly after the breakdown of the July 2017 peace talks between Turkish-Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci and Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades. The talks were suspended when "Turkey had refused to relinquish its intervention rights on Cyprus or the presence of troops on the island." Turkey has 30,000 soldiers stationed on Cyprus, the northern part of which it has illegally occupied since 1974.

Another factor that may be contributing to the Turkish Navy's desire for a base in Cyprus is Israel. Aside from Ankara's extremely rocky relations with Jerusalem, Israel and Cyprus have been working to forge an agreement to join their electricity grids and construct a pipeline to link their gas fields to mainland Europe. Although they are in a dispute over development rights of one of these gas fields, Aphrodite, they are invested in reaching a solution that will not damage their increasingly friendly relations.

Erdogan's considerations should concern NATO, of which Turkey, surprisingly, is still a member, and the rest of the West. As Lawrence A. Franklin recently wrote for Gatestone:

"If Greek-Turkish tensions escalate, the possibility of another ill-timed military provocation could escalate with them. The ability of NATO to respond to other conflicts in the area could be affected, as well as NATO air and naval assets based in both countries. Moreover, such a conflict might open up an even greater opportunity for Russian interference."


          30-minute Mediterranean meals with grapes      Cache   Translate Page      

(BPT) - With the onset of fall, new schedules and an invigorating pace, eating nourishing meals is an important way to keep up energy levels. With few having the time to devote to cooking an elaborate meal, a collection of delicious and dependable 30-minute recipes for a quick but satisfying meal can be handy. What else keeps things simple? Having fresh staples such as California table grapes on hand helps brighten up any recipe and fuel up after activities.

Mediterranean ingredients and flavors create dishes that nicely bridge the gap between summer and fall — they’re refreshing, colorful and filled with fruits and vegetables. Quinoa Tabbouleh Salad with Grapes offers a fresh twist on the Middle Eastern classic, replacing the traditional bulgur with quinoa, and using grapes in place of tomatoes. The result? An approachable and modern salad that works as well for a quick dinner as it does for a brown bag lunch the next day. Pair with grilled chicken or fish, or simply add chickpeas or kidney beans for a heartier meatless entree.

With Mediterranean Pizza, there is no need to fuss with dough because whole-wheat naan, an Indian flatbread, makes the perfect crust. Simply top with cumin and paprika-seasoned ground lamb, bake it, and then finish with a lightly dressed grape and red onion combination that perfectly complements the flavors in the meat. Pita or flatbread can take the place of naan, and lamb can be replaced by ground beef or turkey as desired.

Finally, when it’s time to decorate the table, create a simple but stunning centerpiece with gorgeous black, red and green California grapes. Add fall leaves, mini pumpkins and gourds if desired.

          Hillary Clinton Could Get 5yrs In Prison For Lying About Syrian Weapons      Cache   Translate Page      
Hillary faces up to 5 years in prison for lying about Syrian weapons to Congress
It is inferable that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had knowledge that the US was sending arms from Libya to Syria in 2011, one year before the Benghazi consulate attacks.

Hillary Clinton was questioned by Senator Rand Paul during her public testimony of the Benghazi terrorist attack about a gun running program in January 2013 under oath and she denied any knowledge.
Breitbart.com reports: During Thursday’s “O’Reilly Factor,” Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) said that if WikiLeaks has emails that prove Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and her State Department were aware weapons were going to Islamic terrorists, Clinton could get five years in prison for lying to Congress.
“It’s a felony to lie to Congress. You can get five years in prison. And we can’t continue to say the Clintons are above the law. I do believe that the CIA annex in Benghazi was procuring weapons, some of them to get them away from the jihadists in Libya.”
“But some of it to ferry those weapons through Turkey, into Syria. There have been many, many first-hand accounts, The New York Times, London Times, Washington Times have all reported upon this,” Paul told guest host Eric Bolling.
He added, “I find it hard to believe that Hillary Clinton, who all the news report have said she was the biggest advocate for arming the Islamic rebels in Syria, many of them turned out to be not only enemies of ours, some of them also turned out to be enemies of Israel.”

"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).

          Shrinking Violets Need Not Apply! Look at Me! Wild Animal Show-Offs by Jim Arnovsky      Cache   Translate Page      
Why are wild animals so stunningly beautiful?

What is the purpose of their showy displays and bold markings?

Why would certain creatures evolve arresting shapes, colors, and markings that make them stand out in a crowd? Mother Nature has her reasons.

Some, like the frilled lizard, the cobra, and the pufferfish make themselves look bigger and more intimidating to fend off potential predators. For some species, like the poison dart frog or the spotted scorpionfish, bright colors signal their wearers "Can't Touch This!"

But the most gorgeous, amazing, and breathtakingly spectacular displays are reserved for that special duty--reproduction. From the peacock's gloriously marked and colored tail feathers and the wild turkey's grand and imposing fantail, it's all about the survival of the fittest--or at least the fanciest--one of all. Deer, elk, and moose reveal their imposing racks in the fall. Even the modest little ruby-throated hummingbird can flash a color that says "Notice ME!" Animals that normally come in colors that blend right in with their chosen habitat can suddenly appear in gaudy full-dress colors for those "puttin' on the ritz" occasions in spring. Birds are superb at that, with the almost unlimited ability to grow flamboyant feathers with resplendent shapes, patterns, and hues.

In his forthcoming Look at Me!: Wild Animal Show-Offs (Sterling Books, 2018), the award-winning wildlife author-illustrator, Jim Arnovsky has created a nonfiction book with large and impressive illustrations, some shown in elegantly-designed fold-out pages, to show off a variety of nature's opulent powers of display, from the elk's extravagant antlers to the lacy filigree of the great egret's plumage, Arnovsky's unparalleled paintings delight readers and inspire interest in the science and art of nature's variety.

And for those more modest animals, whose motto is "Nothing to see here. Move along," Arnovsky's companion book to this latest is his Hidden Wildlife: How Animals Hide in Plain Sight.(Sterling Books, 2017)

previo-horarios-rally-turquia-wrc-2018-2

Con un calendario realmente estable, no es fácil ver una prueba nueva en el WRC. Quizá por ello, el Rally de Turquía ha generado una gran expectación. Bien es cierto que la prueba tiene un pasado y que desde 2003 a 2010 se disputó en la región de Antalya. Sin embargo, la nueva cita en el país otomano es completamente diferente a la original. No obstante, la prueba se desarrolla en las cercanías de Marmaris y promete una combinación de tramos técnicos con sección rápidas, así como un calor sofocante y unos tramos de tierra árida que pondrán a prueba las mecánicas.

Es evidente que el Rally de Turquía tiene una historia en la que confluyen grandes nombres con un denominador bastante común, Citroën Racing. No obstante, de las diez primeras ediciones de la cita turca, sólo seis fueron puntuables para el WRC y en cuatro de ellas la victoria fue para la marca francesa. Carlos Sainz ganó en 2003, mientras que Sébastien Loeb ganó en 2004, 2005 y 2010, siendo el piloto más laureado de esta prueba. Marcus Grönholm y Mirkko Hirvonen también saben lo que es ganar en esta prueba, ambos a los mandos del Ford Focus RS WRC.

El Rally de Turquía se divide 17 tramos que suman un total de 321 kilómetros contra el crono y que arrancan con una pequeña súper especial en la jornada del jueves. Con un esquema muy reconocible, pilotos y equipos se enfrentarán durante la etapa del viernes a un bucle de tres tramos que completarán en dos ocasiones. Los tramos de 'Çetibeli', 'Ula' y 'Çiçekli' suman 72,42 kilómetros, por lo que la primera jornada tendrá casi 144 kilómetros competitivos. En este aspecto, cabe mirar con lupa las dos pasadas por 'Çetibeli', ya que se trata del tramo más largo del rally con 38,1 kilómetros.

previo-horarios-rally-turquia-wrc-2018-2

Con el mismo esquema de tres tramos por bucle, la jornada del sábado puede ser clave en la lucha por la victoria. En este aspecto, los promotores del Rally de Turquía han apostado otra vez por la misma fórmula, ya que el tramo de 'Yesilbelde' abre ambos bucles y cuenta con más de 34 kilómetros contra el crono. La prueba termina con la etapa del domingo compuesta por cuatro tramos que apenas alcanzan los 35 kilómetros cronometrados. La única especial que se repite en el último día es la de 'Marmaris', tramo que además hace las veces de Power Stage.

Como en cualquier prueba nueva que se precie, una de las primeras claves son las notas. Con todo, el Rally de Turquía es mucho más y teniendo en cuenta que se esperan temperaturas cercanas a los 35º C, la resistencia de pilotos y mecánicas será también fundamental. A esto hay que sumar la propia dureza del recorrido con especiales rotas, reviradas y plagadas de piedras que pueden provocar más de un pinchazo. En este aspecto, la elección de neumáticos será clave en una prueba en la que Michelin pone a disposición 32 gomas duras H4 y 16 del compuesto medio M6, teniendo que elegir los pilotos 32 ruedas en total.

A estos factores hay que sumar el polvo en suspensión y el tradicional factor limpieza que afectará en gran medida a los pilotos que luchan por el título durante la etapa del viernes. Thierry Neuville, encargado de abrir pista y recién renovado por Hyundai, se encontrará tramos sucios y con poco grip, al igual que le sucederá a Sébastien Ogier y Ott Tänak. Los tres son los grandes favoritos para conseguir la victoria en un Rally de Turquía en la que la principal novedad entre los pilotos prioritarios es el regreso de Hayden Paddon al tercer Hyundai i20 WRC Coupé en sustitución de Dani Sordo.

previo-horarios-rally-turquia-wrc-2018-2

Aunque Neuville, Ogier y Tänak acaparan todas las miradas, la condición de prueba nueva hace que el Rally de Turquía pueda contar con algún 'outsider'. Esapekka Lappi y Jari-Matti Latvala se manejan bien en este tipo de terrenos, al igual que Elfyn Evans y Teemu Suninen, cargado este último de confianza por su rol cada vez más asentado en M-Sport. En Citroën contarán con Mads Ostberg y Craig Breen para intentar rascar un buen resultado en un país de gratos recuerdos para la marca. Además, Khalid Al-Qassimi se suma al equipo con la tercera unidad del Citroën C3 WRC.

La lucha en WRC2 promete, una vez más, ser intensa. No obstante, Skoda Motorsport pone toda la carne en el asador con la presencia de Pontus Tidemand y Jan Kopecký, grandes favoritos a la victoria en la batalla que mantienen ambos por el título de la categoría. A pesar de ellos, en Turquía pilotos como Kajetan Kajetanowicz, Simone Tempestini o Chris Ingram lo pueden hacer realmente bien. Al margen de los pilotos locales, el único vehículo R5 con presencia española es el Skoda Fabia R5 de Benito Guerra, toda vez que el mexicano cuenta con el apoyo de Borja Rozada a su diestra.

Especial atención merece el Junior WRC en Turquía, ya que el certamen llega a su cita final y eso implica que tiene un valor doble. Trece pilotos se juegan el último triunfo de la temporada, con Emil Bergkvist como piloto encargado de defender el liderato. El sueco tiene una ventaja de 14 puntos sobre su compatriota Denis Radström. El francés Jean-Baptiste Franceschi es el otro gran candidato al título, aunque el francés deberá esperar un fallo de sus dos rivales para conquistar el Junior WRC. El turco Bugra Banaz será el único piloto de la categoría que compita en casa.

The Patriarchate of Constantinople Started a War That Cannot Be Stopped
September 11, 2018

The Constantinople Patriarchate appointed two exarchs “for the preparation of the autocephaly of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church”. The Holy Synod of the Russian Orthodox Church responded to this decision with a statement that is unprecedented in its sharpness.
It included words about the deadlock in relations between the Russian Orthodox Church and the Constantinople Church, and also about the threat to the unity of global Orthodoxy. The arguments given by the Constantinople Patriarch Bartholomew in defence of his position were called false.
If not to delve into the essence of the problem, then it is possible to say that such things have happened before. The Russian Orthodox Church in 2000 already expressed deep concern about the actions of the same Bartholomew in Estonia, where he, encroaching on the canonical territory of the Russian Orthodox Church, also promoted a split in the church.
Now, however, it is not about concern, but about a resolute protest and deep indignation. Taking into account that the church always chooses its words much more accurately than diplomats do and always tries to start with small things in order to not immediately bring things to a deep confrontation, we can ascertain that Bartholomew committed a deed that, if we draw an analogy between the church and state relations, could be called direct and barefaced aggression.
In other words, in 2000, the Constantinople Patriarchate was engaged in petty theft in Estonia. But today it is not about theft, not about a robbery, and even not about banditry, but about the beginning of open war. And not against the Russian Orthodox Church, but against all of world Orthodoxy.
If Patriarch Bartholomew simply wrote out Tomos to some abstract Ukrainian Orthodox Christian, then it would be troublesome for his relations with the Russian Orthodox Church, but not a catastrophe for world Orthodoxy. Because, of course, the fight for canonical territory between the actual leading orthodox force (Russian Orthodox Church) and the nominally “first in honor” Constantinople Patriarchate would touch all world Orthodoxy, but it wouldn’t be critical for it. It would just be a conflict between two orthodox chairs, similar to those that often happened in the past. It terms of its scale it would be larger than the Estonian one, because the church and political value of Ukraine is much more, but in general it would keep within this same framework.
The problem is that Bartholomew took not a church decision, but a political one. He laid down claims to “orthodox papacy”. The Patriarch of Fener individually determined himself as being not just “first in honor”, but also the chief of all Orthodox Christians, having the right, in his arbitrariness, to interfere in the affairs of any church, and in reality – of any diocese.
He didn’t just intrude into the canonical territory of others (which in itself is bad). He accused the Russian Orthodox Church of provoking a Ukrainian split, having actually put at the same level the pseudo-Patriarch DenisenkoMetropolitan Onufry, and Patriarch Kirill. He stated that he doubts the fairness of the anathema of Denisenko and that he is going to consider this question personally. I.e., for him the Russian Orthodox Church, the autonomous Ukrainian Orthodox Church, and the self-proclaimed Patriarch Filaret (Denisenko) are equal parties to the conflict that he is going to judge. In order for this to be understandable for people who are distant from church problems, this is worse than when it is declared in the West that Stalin and Hitler are equal parties to the conflict. It is even worse than if, having reached the limit of “tolerance”, in the West it is declared that Roosevelt, Churchill, and de Gaulle also bear responsibility equal with Hitler for the Holocaust, the genocide of Slavs in occupied territories, the initiation of war, the tens of millions of victims, and even repression in Germany. It is worse because in the case with Hitler’s evaluation there would be talk of a terrestrial political example, of a temporary phenomenon. But in the available case we are dealing with eternity, with the problem of the immortality of the soul. And it’s not even about one soul, but millions of orthodox souls being plunged into split.
If to go straight to the point, Bartholomew suddenly decided to allocate to himself the same (and even vaster) powers than the ones the Pope has in the Catholic world. At the same time it is necessary to understand that the Pope isn’t just the Supreme bishop of the Catholic church, but also a secular sovereign governing the state of Vatican. The Pope is only half (as the head of the church) monk and half (as the head of state) politician. Contrary to the precept of rendering unto Caesar what is Caesar’s, and unto God what is God’s, the Pope tries to combine in himself the divine and the political.
With Bartholomew it is worse. Firstly, he has no territorial state (unlike the Pope, who has the Vatican). He lays claim to political influence within the borders of other states. At the same time, his influence is initially destructive, since he can obtain it only by influencing existing churches. And the mechanism of influence available to him, making him allegedly an “arbitration judge”, is giving support for splits. In the same way that he is unable to pave his way to the canonical territory of the Russian Orthodox Church if he doesn’t support the pseudo-orthodox sectarians of Denisenko, he won’t be able to influence neither Serbian, nor Bulgarian, nor any other orthodox church without the support of such schismatics. Splits are his pillar of support. Only the equation of a bandit with their victim in terms of responsibility (or even the bandit’s justification) allows this Turkish subject working (according to local, Turkish legislation) with a status of nothing more than a tourist attraction to claim to be the supreme all-Orthodox judge and the individual determinant of the canonicity of any heresies. The head of a structure that signed uniatism three times – at a minimum – on the terms of the Holy See, whose “Orthodoxy” was recognised by other churches rather out of charity and the unwillingness to create additional split, suddenly decided to become “holier than the Pope”.
He can’t but understand that he initiates a split in Orthodoxy. At the same time, he understands that he violates not just canons and traditions, but also the decisions of the Ecumenical Councils, which established not only the rules of relations between episcopal chairs, but also the symbol of faith. If today it is possible to ignore one of the decisions of these Councils, then tomorrow it will also be possible to rewrite the symbol of faith. Especially since the Constantinople Patriarchate already three times signed uniatism with the Roman throne, each time recognising its subordinated position towards Rome.
Bartholomew is not a child small. He knows very well that he acts against the canons of world Orthodoxy and that he touches the interests of all orthodox churches, each of which has its own schismatics who, on the basis of the latest statements of the Constantinople Patriarchate, Bartholomew (as he considers) can recognise as being rather canonical.
Bartholomew knows what he risks. He also understands that the US weakened and can’t provide him with comprehensive support, and that Turkey – which he is a citizen of – won’t be delighted by his actions directed not just against the Russian Orthodox Church, but also against political Moscow, being the ally of Istanbul. It’s also not a secret for him that practically all orthodox churches refuse to support him and to recognise the competency of his actions in Ukraine. Everyone understands that it can become the next victim of the Constantinople “peacemaker”.
Constantinople also ought to understand that the influence of the weak and unpopular (the “pro-European”, or to be more exact – pro-American governments of Eastern European countries) on the church situation is minimal. The church in these countries enjoys bigger authority than the government does. Politicians there have no chance of forcing local churches to support Constantinople. Of course, supporters of Bartholomew can be found among local hierarchs, but this will only create additional lines of split, dividing world Orthodoxy in a worse way than the Great Schism of 1054 divided Christianity.
For Ukraine, Bartholomew’s actions unambiguously mean religious war, in which not streams, but rivers of blood will be shed, and already not only the Ukrainian state (which already burst) will be destroyed, but also the people living on territory that is formally subordinated to the current Kiev authorities. And Fener already knows this. They understand very well that they are provoking a horrible civil religious conflict, thus standing on the side of schismatics and sectarians against true Orthodox Christians. The Istanbul bishop isn’t mistaken. He is aware that he acts against his own faith and hundreds of millions of orthodox believers over the entire world. He sacrifices his immortal soul for the sake of momentary political benefits. Such a decision can be made only by someone whose belief is dead and who stopped being a monk, a priest, a bishop, but who became a politician, who stopped being a servant of God, and who started to serve the knight of this world [the devil – ed]. The Constantinople Patriarch lays claim to the laurels of pseudo-teachers and pseudo-prophets that John of Patmos describes as the forerunners of the Antichrist.
Bartholomew’s actions already don’t correspond even to the interests of the US (which always acted as a supporter of the Ukrainian split). This is much more than the US would’ve liked. The situation stops being controlled from Washington. The Constantinople Patriarch starts laying claim to the status of an independent political figure who is no less influential than the leaders of the largest faiths and heads of leading states. But he tries to obtain this status without having the corresponding opportunities in orthodox sobornost, as a teacher of split. Bartholomew builds his political career precisely by plunging millions and even tens of millions of Orthodox Christians into split, sacrificing not only his, but also their souls, standing on the side of world evil.
His actions are much more large-scale than the split initiated by Denisenko, and is thus more dangerous. In comparison with Bartholomew, who strives for the status of a pseudo-patriarch, the pseudo-patriarch Filaret is a mere child.
Bartholomew’s split is caused by Constantinople’s understanding of the simple fact that the US, which before this served as the base of the ambitions of the Istanbul Patriarchate and gave via its support considerably bigger influence to him than what his weight allows, becomes weaker and is no longer a factor of force.
Only split, only destruction, only pitting orthodox believers against each other – both in a global context and within the framework of every church – can create for Constantinople a new pillar of support. Bartholomew is not the first to try to become equal to God by acting against God. And he is not the last to try to exchange influence bought in this world on the back of bloodshed for immortality of the soul. At his age and with his rank, spontaneous decisions are simply not made. He weighed up everything: both the possibilities of countering other orthodox faiths and the probable reaction of an anti-American orientated Erdogan – who is the situational ally of Russia in the Middle East, and the inevitability of the bloodshed initiated by him in Ukraine. He weighed things up and made his choice, and he will see it to the end.
That’s why the Moscow Patriarchate, although it doesn’t opt for an immediate severance of relations, starts responding with statements that are more rigid than what happened in previous such cases. The Russian Orthodox Church reasonably doesn’t want to assume responsibility for inciting a conflict, but shows absolute understanding of the fact that Constantinople won’t cool its passions any more and will go to the very end. Hence the phrase about responsibility falling on the Fener Patriarchate and its leader Bartholomew.
It is a affirmation of fact that the Second Rome, following the First Rome, definitively (not only in a political, but also in a spiritual sense) turned into a stronghold of world evil. Sooner or later this will be said openly. The church isn’t in a hurry since it is obliged to admonish and heal, and only in second place, if the schismatics and heretics remain incorrigible and stagnate in sin, does it punish and denounce. But we, already now, are obliged to live with the realisation of the fact that the unity of world Orthodoxy once again was subjected to a test and that another split became as inevitable as there being hundreds of thousands, or maybe even millions, of its future victims.

          Finding a way out of the war against Syria      Cache   Translate Page      


Image result for war against syria
The White House is unable to extricate itself from the war in Syria. President Trump is hindered both by the self-proclaimed « stable state » (according to the anonymous op ed in the New York Times), which continues to pursue the Rumsfeld-Cebrowski strategy, and by the reactivated ambitions of his Israëli, French, British and Turkish allies. The logic of these interests could displace the war instead of resolving it.
Although the White House and Russia have agreed to end the proxy war fought by jihadists in Syria, peace is a long time coming. Why?

Why is there a war against Syria?

Contrary to the idea carefully sown by seven years of propaganda, the war against Syria is not a « revolution which went wrong ». It was decided by the Pentagon in September 2001, then prepared for many years, admittedly with a few difficulties.
A war in preparation for a decade
JPEG - 38.6 kb
The preparation of the war is explained in depth in Thierry Meyssan’s latest book. It is already available in French, Spanish, Russian and Turkish. It will be published in September in English, Arab and Italian.
A reminder of the main stages of the planning of the war:
- In September 2001, US Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld adopted the strategy of Admiral Arthur Cebrowski, which specified that the state structures of half of the world had to be destroyed. For those states whose economy is globalised, the United States would control the access to the natural resources of those regions not connected to the global economy. The Pentagon commenced its work by « remodelling » the « Greater Middle East » [1].
- On 12 December 2003, George Bush Jr. signed the Syria Accountability and Lebanese Sovereignty Restoration Act. From that moment on, the President of the United States enjoyed the right to go to war with Syria without having to ask Congress for approval [2].
- The Lebanese civil war (1978-90) ended with the Taif Agreement. At the request of the Arab League, and with the approbation of the UN Security Council, the Syrian Arab Army came to the assistance of the Lebanese army in disarming the militias, then, acting as a Peace Force, stabilised the country. Thereafter, Israël accused Syria of having occupied Lebanon, which makes no sense at all. [3]
- In 2004, during the summit of the Arab League in Tunis, President Ben Ali attempted to push through a motion authorising the League to legitimise the use of force against member states who refused to respect the League’s brand new Human Rights Charter.
- In 2005, the CIA organised the Cedar revolution in Lebanon. By assassinating Sunni leader Rafic Hariri and blaming the Christian President of Lebanon and the Alaouite President of Syria, they hoped to trigger a Sunni uprising against the Syrian Peace Forces. With the Marines ready to disembark in Beïrut, Syria withdrew on its own initiative, and the tension was dissipated [4].
- In 2006, Dick Cheney tasked his daughter Liz with creating the « Iran Syria Policy and Operations Group ». They organised the Israeli attack against Hezbollah, thinking that they would be unable to resist for long. US Marines were then intended to disembark in Beïrut and continue their march of « liberation » on Damascus. However, the operation failed, and after 33 days of combat, Israël had to retreat [5].
- In 2008, Washington once again tried to create conflict with Lebanon as its flash point. Prime Minister Fouad Siniora decided to cut the internal communications of the Resistance and to interrupt air transport with Teheran. Within a few hours, Hezbollah had inverted the Western military system and replaced all of its infrastructures.
- In 2010, Washington adopted the strategy of « leading from behind ». The Obama administration handed the attacks on Libya and Syria to France and the United Kingdom respectively (Lancaster House agreements).
- In 2011, beginning of military operations in Syria.
It is therefore absurd to speak of the war against Syria as a spontaneous event sui generis [6].
Indirect war
The original feature of the war against Syria is that although it was declared by states (the « Friends of Syria »), it was in reality fought almost exclusively by non-state armies, the jihadists.
During the seven years of this war, more than 250,000 combatants arrived from overseas to fight against the Syrian Arab Republic. They were without doubt little more than cannon fodder, and insufficiently trained, but during the first four years of the conflict, these soldiers were better armed than the Syrian Arab Army. The most important arms traffic in History was organised in order to keep the jihadists supplied with war materials [7].
The Western powers had not used mercenaries on this scale since the European Renaissance [8].
It is therefore absurd to speak of a « revolution that went wrong ».

A war supervised by allies who have their own objectives

By asking Israël to attack Lebanon on their behalf, then by handing over the wars on Libya and Syria to France and the United Kingdom, and finally by using the NATO installations in Turkey, the Pentagon allowed its plan to be confounded by its allies.
Just as in all wars, the leading country has to promise its obedient allies that they will be awarded a return on their investment. However, with the entry of Russia into the war, Western victory became impossible. Every one of the United States allies turned progressively back towards its own strategy in the region. With time, the war objectives of the allies gained the upper hand over those of the United States, who refused to invest as much as they should have done, militarily speaking.
Israël
Pursuing the colonial ideology of some of its founding fathers, Israël implemented a policy of division intended to split its larger neighbours into a collection of small countries which were to be ethnically or religiously homogeneous. It therefore supported – in vain – the division of Lebanon into two states, one Muslim and one Christian, or again the creation of a Kurdistan in Iraq, then later in Syria. We do not have the Israëli strategic documents, but retrospectively, the line followed by Tel-Aviv corresponds to the « Yinon plan » of 1982 [9] or that of the Institute for Advanced Strategic and Political Studies of 1996 [10].
The Israëli strategy stayed within the limits of the « remodelling of the Greater Middle East » designed by Rumsfeld and Cebrowski. However, it did not have anything like the same objective – the Pentagon wanted to control the access to the region’s riches by the developed countries, while Israël wanted to ensure that none of its neighbours could become strong enough to challenge it.
The United Kingdom and France
The United Kingdom and France fell back on their colonial policy, as it was defined at the moment of the fall of the Ottoman Empire and the division of the Middle East (the Sykes-Picot agreements).
The British used a replay of the « Great Arab Revolt of 1915 » that Lawrence of Arabia had set up against the Ottomans. At that time, they had promised freedom to all Arabs if they would throw off the shackles of the Ottoman Empire and place the Wahhabites in power, This time they promised freedom if they would overthrow all their national governments and replace them with the Muslim Brotherhood. But neither in 1915, when the British Empire replaced the Ottoman Empire, nor in 2011, did the Arabs find their liberty. That was the « Arab Spring » plan of 2011 [11].
The French were seeking to re-establish the mandate on Syria which had been handed to them by the League of Nations. This was explained by Picot’s great-nephew (as in the Sykes-Picot agreements), ex- President Giscard d’Estaing [12]. And that is what President Hollande demanded during his visit to the United Nations, in September 2015. Just as in 1921, when France stood for the ethnic separation of the Kurds from the Arabs, it therefore defended the creation of a Kurdistan, not on its historic territory in Turkey, but anywhere, so long as it was on Arab land in Syria.
Turkey
As for Turkey, it dreamed of realising the promise of its founder, Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, the « National Pact » (Misak-ı Millî) [13], adopted by the Ottoman Parliament on 12 February 1920. Its intention was to annex Northern Syria, including Aleppo, and also to eliminate the Christians, including the Catholics in Maaloula and the Armenians in Kessab.
Turkey entered into conflict with the other allies – with the Israëlis because they sought to annex Northern Syria rather than making it autonomous – with the British because they wanted to re-establish the Ottoman Caliphate – and with the French because they sought to create an independent Kurdistan in Syria. Above all, it entered into conflict with the United States themselves because they made no secret of wanting to destroy Syria after having dismantled it [14].

How to escape from this war?

After seven years of combat, the Syrian state is still standing. The Syrian Arab Republic and its allies, Russia, Iran and the Hezbollah, are victorious. The foreign armies (the jihadists) have suffered a crushing defeat, but not their commanders – the United States, Israël, the United Kingdom, France and Turkey.
Not only has the war re-awoken the ambitions of the beginning of the 20th century, but none of the protagonists who have not paid for their defeat in blood are ready to abandon the fight.
It may seem stupid to want to start over with a war which has already been lost by the jihadists. The presence of the Russian army makes impossible any direct confrontation. Far from being eliminated, the Syrian population is now battle-hardened, ready to suffer even more hardship, and is much better armed than before. Above all, it has given the situation some serious thought, and is less manipulable than it was in 2011. However, just as before, Western political rhetoric has once again taken up its refrain « Bachar must go ».
Logically, therefore, the conflict will have to start again on another battle-field. While in the past, Admiral Cebrowski had planned to take the next stage of the war to Central Asia and the South-East, his successors will first have to finish the job in the Greater Middle East. They are currently studying the possibility of relighting the fire in Iraq, as we see with the spectacular about-face of the Rohani administration and the riots in Bassorah.

          SYRIAN WAR REPORT – SEPTEMBER 12, 2018: MILITANTS FILMING STAGED CHEMICAL ATTACK IN IDLIB      Cache   Translate Page      


On September 11, the US-led coalition and the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) announced that the SDF is kicking off a military operation to eliminate the ISIS-held pocket of Hajin in the Euphrates Valley. According to a coalition spokesman, the SDF ground advance will be backed up by coalition air and artillery strikes.
Hajin and nearby villages are the only remaining major ISIS stronghold in Syria, which the terrorist group actively uses to carry out attacks on the eastern and western banks of the Euphrates. Previously, the SDF repeatedly announced that it’s going to clear the pocket. However, by September 11, no real efforts had been taken in this field.
If the Hajin pocket is seized by the SDF, the US-backed fore will finally be able to declare the eastern bank of the Euphrates free from ISIS, at least technically.
More than 100 US Marines were sent as reinforcements to the US—led coalition garrison in the area of al-Tanf, according to a September 8 announcement by the Pentagon. Many MSM sources described this move as a self-defense effort amid the growing tensions between Russia and the US in the war-torn country.
On September 11, the Russian Center for Syrian Reconciliation in Syria stated that militants have already started filming a chemical weapons attack in the city of Jisr al-Shugur in the province of Idlib.
“According to the information received from inhabitants of Idlib province, militants are now filming a staged provocation in the city of Jisr al-Shugur, where “chemical weapons” are depicted as being used by the Syrian army against civilians. The film crews of several Middle Eastern TV channels arrived in Jisr al-Shugur in the morning, as well as the regional affiliate of one of the main American television news networks,” the Center said.
The plot reportedly envisages staged scenes showing members of the White Helmets pretending to help civilians “after the Syrian army allegedly used the so-called barrel bombs with poisonous substances”.
On the same day, during a UN Security Council meeting, the Russian representative Vasily Nebenzya once again emphasized that terrorists in Idlib “must not be shielded because they all are one way or another linked to Al-Qaeda”.
It’s interesting to note that the situation in Idlib has once again highlighted differences between the Syrian-Iranian-Russian bloc and Turkey. While Damascus, Teheran and Moscow are actively working to set conditions to eliminate terrorists, Ankara seems to be one of their defenders alongside with Washington.
On September 10, Turkish President Recep Erdogan said in the Wall Street Journal that “All members of the international community must understand their responsibilities as the assault on Idlib looms.”
“A regime assault would also create serious humanitarian and security risks for Turkey, the rest of Europe and beyond,” he added once again recalling the accusations against the Syrian government in arbitrary arrests, systematic torture, summary executions, barrel bombs and chemical weapons usage.
Turkey is against the operation against terrorists in Idlib because it will undermine its plans to further expand its influence within Syria and to rescue a core of the opposition forces capable of showing a real military resistance to the Syrian Army – Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra, the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda in Syria).

Турция приступила к укреплению своих блокпостов в сирийской провинции Идлиб, а также активизировала поставки оружия сирийским оппозиционным силам, сообщает Reuters со ссылкой на источники.

Один из собеседников агентства утверждает, что военных направляют не только на границу, но и в саму провинцию Идлиб. По словам Мустафы Сераджи, которого Reuters называет «высокопоставленным сирийским повстанцем», в Идлиб идут десятки бронемашин и танков и сотни бойцов спецназа.

Ранее президент Турции Реджеп Тайип Эрдоган настаивал на прекращении военных операций в Идлибе. Тем не менее, пункт о перемирии не вошел в Тегеранскую декларацию, которую подписали Россия, Турция и Иран.

          Turkey: Central bank is widely expected to raise rates - Rabobank      Cache   Translate Page      

The Turkish central bank is widely expected to raise rates at its upcoming meeting, according to analysts at Rabobank.

Key Quotes

“Admittedly, tightening while the economy is facing a potentially sharp slowdown has its risks, but as Piotr Matys, our EM strategist, argues, the bank has good reasons to hike nonetheless. First of all, inflation is well above the CBRT's target - partially fuelled by the recent depreciation of the lira.”

“Moreover, the currency has recently gained some support from market expectations of a rate hike. Should the CBRT not meet these expectations, it could put renewed pressure on the currency, which would further add to the prevailing inflationary environment.”

“With many investors and analysts expecting a rate hike, the crucial question is by how much the central bank will raise rates. As Piotr notes, considering the decline in the lira, one could argue for a rate hike to the tune of 1,000bp. However, considering the political resistance against higher interest rates, Piotr considers 500bp to be a more realistic scenario. This is slightly on the hawkish side compared to the median estimate, but with analyst forecasts ranging from no hike to 725bp, the decision is bound to surprise at least some market participants.”

          EU Acts Against Hungary, Citing Academic Freedom      Cache   Translate Page      

The European Parliament took the unprecedented step Wednesday of approving a proposal calling on European Union member states to determine whether Hungary is at risk of breaching the union's founding values -- the first step toward possible sanctions against the country.

Among the values at stake are those related to academic freedom and freedoms of expression and association. A report adopted by the Parliament by a 448-197 margin Wednesday outlines concerns related to a 2017 law on foreign branch campuses that has been widely seen as an attack on academic freedom generally and on the Budapest-based Central European University, an American-accredited graduate institution, specifically. It also discusses concerns about the Hungarian government's plans, revealed in August, to cancel or refuse recognition to gender studies programs.

Other areas of concern outlined in the report include those relating to the functioning of the constitutional and electoral system; judicial independence; corruption and conflicts of interest; privacy and data protection; freedom of religion; the right to equal treatment, the rights of minority groups, including Roma and Jews; the rights of migrants, asylum seekers and refugees; and economic and social rights.

The European University Association, which monitors university autonomy issues across Europe and has 13 member institutions in Hungary, said the vote is "a warning to all EU governments to respect fundamental values, including those regarding university matters."

"While the situation is alarming in several countries including Turkey and Russia" -- neither of which are EU members -- "Hungary is the first EU member state to systematically interfere in university matters and repeatedly violate academic freedom," the association said in a statement.

Hungary's right-wing government has condemned the parliament's action against it. Péter Szijjártó, the minister of foreign affairs and trade described the parliament's decision as "the petty revenge of the pro-immigration politicians." Szijjártó said the parliamentary report "includes 37 false, deceitful, unfair and unfounded accusations that insult Hungary, and which have absolutely nothing to do with reality," including accusations regarding the restriction of academic freedom.

          Do the American People Have the Stomach for Another War for israel (apartheid state) in Syria?      Cache   Translate Page      
Patrick J. McShay — Sept 12, 2018
“The US links itself to an Israeli government identifiable as a rogue regime by international standards, engaging as it does in torture, arbitrary imprisonment, and continued occupation of territories seized by its military. America’s own torture program was modelled after Israel’s.”
— *Philip Giraldi- Longtime Counter-Intelligence and Military Intelligence Officer with the CIA
“I’ve never seen a president- I don’t care who he is- stand up to them. It just boggles the mind. They always get what they want. The Israeli’s know what is going on all the time. If the American people understood the grip the Israeli’s have on our government they would rise up in arms. Our citizens certainly don’t have any idea what goes on.”
— *Thomas Moore – Admiral US Navy and former head of the Joint Chief of Staff
Dees SyriaWe hear American politicians talk warmly and affectionately about our military and how they are fighting around the world to preserve our freedom and democracy. George Bush “The Dumber” liked to say “We have to fight them over there or we’ll have to fight them over here”.
The ugly truth that many Americans are getting wise to is that none of these wars has anything to do with American freedom and democracy, and instead, they have a lot to do with Israel’s control over our President, the Congress, the Senate, the Pentagon, and the State Department.
Last year I wrote in “Syrian War Lies and The Greater Israel Project” that this war was about regime change for the benefit of Israel, period.
The US, Israel, and other western countries sold out to Israel, like Germany, England, France along with Trump’s new pal’s, the head choppers in Saudi Arabia have all been arming, funding and protecting the terrorists in Syria for years. The despicable John “Traitor” McCain spent his final years in the Senate arming and funding terrorists.
Wikileaks published a leaked e-mail to Hillary Clinton from Israeli Intelligence saying that the “fall of the Assad regime would result in a regional sectarian war between the Sunni’s and the Shia, drawing in Iran, which, in the view of Israeli commanders would not be a bad thing for Israel and it’s western allies.”
*Virginia Senator Dick Black is on record accusing Hillary Clinton of ordering the murder of Ambassador Christopher Stevens in Benghazi, to cover up her illegal transfer of arms and terrorists to Syria through Turkey.
*The US and Israel wanted a regional war to break out in Syria. Let that sink in.
*The Jerusalem Post recently reported that Israel has been arming and funding 12 terrorist groups in Syria for years. Is this how Israel spends the billions of dollars that we send them each year? Do you wonder why FOX News or the other networks didn’t report this news?
Trump said not long ago that he was pulling troops out of Syria but he has apparently changed his mind. The US Navy is currently conducting maneuvers in the region and the reason now given for staying in Syria was addressed by Naval Commander Scott Stearney who stated, They are concerned that “Iran’s activities in the region are promoting instability.” Really?
The US has been arming terrorists in Syria, Libya, and Iraq for years and is arming and sponsoring the Saudi slaughter that continues against the people of Yemen. The Turks, NATO members, have been active in Idlib for some time and have colluded with several terrorist groups including ISIS in Syria for years.
Israel bombs targets in Syria with impunity, claiming 200 bombing missions in Syria this year alone. They claim to be bombing Iranian targets, in much the same way that they blame Hamas every time they shoot another unarmed Palestinian.
The Trump administration, however, is concerned about Iran destabilizing the region? You really have to leave your brain at the door to follow this insane Neo-Con logic.
Trump needs to take control of America’s foreign policy that currently appears to be in the hands of Bibi Netanyahu, the Zionists at the Pentagon and the President’s National Security Adviser, and longtime  Israeli puppet, John Bolton who was no doubt behind cruelly cutting off aid to the prisoners in Palestine.
If he doesn’t, he will likely end up on the Mt. Rushmore of American war criminals alongside the Kenyon, Barack Obama, the head of the Bush Crime Family George H.W. Bush, and of course the scourge of Iraq, George Bush “The Dumber”.
In recent days Israeli puppet Nikki Haley oddly warned Syria’s Bashar al-Assad not to use chemical weapons against terrorists in Idlib, the last refuge of ISIS, Al Queda and other groups, and just yesterday the Wall Street Journal published an article citing unnamed US officials who claim Syrian’s President Assad is planning a chemical attack. I remember when intelligence from unnamed sources lied us into the war in Iraq.
This should serve as a false flag alert to everyone. What purpose would a chemical attack serve Syria or Russia in a war they are winning? John Bolton’s recent trip to Israel was no doubt to firm up their plans to intervene and another false flag gas attack has certainly worked in the past to get the base on board to fight another war for Israel, why not another?
Just yesterday afternoon Bolton said in a televised speech that the US, France, and Great Britain have agreed that any future gas attacks would be taken ”very seriously” and would require a much “stronger and harsher response”. Sounds like we will hear about a gas attack in Syria sooner than later.
The harsher response is what Bibi and the rest of Israels zealot’s want. the plan for “the Greater Israel Project”, which calls for the theft of much more land, won’t allow a retreat, and if the Syrians won’t gas their people the US/Israeli backed terrorists and associated White Helmets no doubt have their orders.
Also, Bibi has an interest in Genie Oil Company which is pumping billions in stolen Syrian oil from the Golan Heights and Assad has made some noise recently about retaking the Golan Heights.
Regime change would likely result in the Golan Heights, Stolen by Israel from Syria over 50 years ago, remaining with Israel. At least Bibi Netanyahu certainly believes it would.
Netanyahu has already been pressuring Trump to give America’s blessing to the theft of the Golan Heights, but even if Trump went along with it the rest of the world never would. Israel hasn’t many friends at the UN.
Russia’s Putin, Iran’s Rouhani, and Turkey’s Erdogan met recently to try to avoid more conflict as Turkey has been overrun with 3 million Syrian refugees. Putin and Rouhani deciding the time was right to move on Idlib, dismissed talks of ceasefire or further delays.
Fars News Agency reported that Russian and Syrian Fighters carried out strikes on terrorists in the Hama and Idlib area inflicting heavy losses. The question many are asking is what is the US goal in Syria? What exactly is the mission? Why should World War 3 start over this nonsense?
After years of sending terrorists into Syria to destroy the country and murder, it’s citizens, It would be a stretch for the US to now claim we are there on a humanitarian mission, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they try.
That might be a tough sell now since the Russian military just accused the US Air Force of using F-15 Fighters armed with banned White Phosphorus munitions while bombing the town of Hajin in Syria. The US and Israel have been accused of this before, the US famously in Fallujah, Iraq. No wonder the US is breaking with the International Criminal Court (ICC)
According to the State Department, with no UN mandate and no invitation from the Syrian government to stay, the new mission in Syria signed by Trump removes timelines on withdrawal. According to US special envoy James Jeffrey, they are committed to an “indefinitely extended stay.” The goal he said was “Containing Iran.”
That, no doubt, must seem reasonable to most FOX News watchers except what they didn’t address is the fact that there are no Iranian troops in Syria, nor are there any Iranian military bases in Syria.
*In a new warning at the UN, Ambassador Nikki Haley said, “If Assad, Russia and Iran continue down the path they are on the consequences will be dire”.
This would be hilarious if it weren’t so deadly serious. Haley must be aware that the rest of the world isn’t getting their news from FOX. The US has no moral superiority in Syria and dopey Nikki Haley couldn’t see the moral high ground from where she sits with binoculars.
What do you suppose Israel was really targeting on those 200 bombing raids inside Syria. Just who are US Fighters targeting in Hajin with white phosphorus? Why isn’t anyone asking these questions in the criminally negligent media?
The US and Russian fleets sit off the coast of Syria waiting for orders. What Trump does in Syria will make or break his presidency. If he doesn’t want to have the same “war criminal” tag that Bush and Obama carry around, Trump had better either keep Bibi on a shorter leash or break the chains Bibi has on him.
Either way at $20 trillion in debt we don’t have the resources, and I don’t think most American’s have the stomach for another war for Israel. The Syrian story is the next big story. The next great theft.

The Turkish army has put over 50,000 gunmen of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) on alert to use them in the battlefields against the Syrian Army troops in Idlib province, a Turkish-language paper claimed on Monday.
Yeni Safak daily claimed that the Turkish army has kept more than 50,000 FSA terrorists on alert in Afrin, Azaz, Jarabulus, al-Bab and al-Rai regions to further sent them to battle against the Syrian government forces’ operation in Idlib province.
It further said that 30,000 FSA gunmen are in regions under the occupation of the Operation Euphrates Shield and Operation Olive Branch forces, “and a sum 20,000 FSA fighters are to be transferred to Idlib to counter the Damascus forces’ upcoming operation”.
The daily went on to say that Turkish army has urged its allied militants to report the exact number of their gunmen and volume of arms and ammunition.
It said that the Turkish army has in recent days sent a number of cannons and missile launchpads to the borders with Syria and has reinvigorated its forces’ combat capabilities.
The London-based pro-opposition Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported earlier today that Jeish al-Islam terrorist group has deployed its fighters at contact lines with the Syrian Army in Eastern Aleppo after coordination with Turkey-backed militants.
SOHR said that Jeish al-Islam has started deploying militants in more than ten contact points with the Syrian Army in Tadif in Northeastern Aleppo after coordination with Ankara-backed Ahrar al-Sharqiyeh.
It further said that Jeish al-Islam set up a large base in the town of Afrin after retreating from Eastern Ghouta, adding Jeish al-Islam stationed its fighters in Afrin base.

          Novelist who wrote about 'How to Murder Your Husband' charged with murdering her husband      Cache   Translate Page      
Nancy Crampton Brophy seemed to have a knack for writing about the murder of spouses. The Portland-based romance novelist authored books about relationships that were "wrong" but "never felt so right," often featuring bare-chested men on the cover. In "The Wrong Cop," she wrote about a woman who "spent every day of her marriage fantasizing about killing" her husband." In "The Wrong Husband," a woman tried to flee an abusive husband by faking her death. And in "How to Murder Your Husband" - an essay - Crampton Brophy wrote about how to get away with it. She wrote the post on the blog "See Jane Publish" in November 2011, describing five core motives and a number of murder weapons from which she would choose if her character were to kill a husband in a romance novel. She advised against hiring a hit-man to do the dirty work - "an amazing number of hit men rat you out to the police" - and against hiring a lover. "Never a good idea." Poison? Not advised either. "Who wants to hang out with a sick husband?" "After all," Crampton Brophy wrote in the post, which was made private after inquiries from The Washington Post to the site's administrators, "if the murder is supposed to set me free, I certainly don't want to spend any time in jail." In real life, she appeared to follow some of her own advice, at least according to police. Rather than hire a hit man she allegedly pulled the trigger herself. Crampton Brophy, 68, was arrested last Wednesday on charges of murdering her husband with a gun and unlawful use of a weapon in the death of her husband, Daniel Brophy, according to the Portland Police Bureau. But what has not been revealed is the alleged motive. She was arraigned Thursday, appearing in blue inmate clothing, and ordered jailed without bail, court records show. She has not yet filed a plea, and her lawyer declined to comment when contacted by The Post. The killing puzzled police and those close to Daniel Brophy from the start. Brophy, a 63-year-old chef, was fatally shot at his workplace at the Oregon Culinary Institute on the morning of June 2. Students were just beginning to file into the building for class when they found him bleeding in the kitchen, KATU2 news reported. Police had no description of the suspect. Two days later, Crampton Brophy wrote an emotional post on Facebook. "For my Facebook friends and family, I have sad news to relate," Crampton Brophy wrote. "My husband and best friend, Chef Dan Brophy was killed yesterday morning. For those of you who are close to me and feel this deserved a phone call, you are right, but I'm struggling to make sense of this right now." Brophy was a beloved chef at the Oregon Culinary Institute. Colleagues considered him the institute's "resident encyclopedia of knowledge" who had a "creative approach to teaching" and an "offbeat sense of humor,"as they wrote about him in memoriam. He sometimes made cooks who forgot their hats wear sombreros or spiky helmets instead, the Portland Tribune reported. And he liked to lead groups of students on "experimental field trips" into the forests, perpetually hunting for new ingredients. Hundreds of people came to celebrate and to mourn him at a candlelight vigil held outside the Oregon Culinary Institute on June 4. Crampton Brophy came, too. But as the weeks went on, neighbors told the Oregonian, something seemed off about Cram
