          Alfred Hitchcock's best MacGuffins      Cache   Translate Page      
Dan Norma
Oct 9, 2018

Grab your passport and bring a sidekick. We're hunting for Alfred Hitchcock’s greatest MacGuffins

Spoilers lie ahead for The Trouble With Harry, Psycho, North By Northwest, To Catch A Thief, The Lady Vanishes and Star Wars

The MacGuffin is one of those storytelling inventions that operates by a vague “I know it when I see it” rule. The man who popularised its use, Alfred Hitchcock, didn’t help matters. When asked to define the MacGuffin – as he frequently was – he would repeat the same nonsensical joke.

In Hitchcock’s interview with François Truffaut, Truffaut attempts to establish limits on the phrase (is it “the pretext for the plot”? is it ideally “forgotten” amongst the rush of the action?). Each time, Hitch replies with an answer that amounts to little more than ‘sort of’.

Without any exact definitions being offered by either Hitchcock or the screenwriter credited with the term, Angus MacPhail, most writing about MacGuffins is dedicated to pinning down precisely what it is.

It is easier to provide examples. The treasure map is a classic MacGuffin. The Golden Fleece hunted by the Argonauts another. They can loosely be linked as specific items to be discovered and/or claimed, but this doesn’t give the full picture.

The Holy Grail of Arthurian legend is often cited as a MacGuffin but, though there is overlap, a grail is its own storytelling device. Grails hold some spiritual meaning for the characters. The MacGuffin is a more material gain, less noble and not to be taken as seriously.

What can be gathered from Hitchcock’s words is that a MacGuffin is an excuse for a plot. It is usually the trigger that springs the plot into action. Without it, there would be no story. In some ways it is the inverse of a deus ex machina. Where a deus ex machina arrives from nowhere to wrap the plot up, a MacGuffin starts it off.

One point on which Hitchcock was clear is that the MacGuffin is unimportant. In the Truffaut interview he insists that while it “must seem to be of vital importance to the characters [t]o me, the narrator, they’re of no importance whatever”. All that is important is that it pushes our characters out of the door and into the story. There are multiple variations on the MacGuffin, but those used by Hitchcock fall into three subcategories.

The Secret

As seen in: The 39 Steps; North by Northwest; Foreign Correspondent; The Lady Vanishes; Star Wars: A New Hope; Burn After Reading  

This is the MacGuffin most associated with Hitchcock, with his two most quintessential – the memorised plans in The 39 Steps and the microfilm in North by Northwest – coming under this category. Foreign Correspondent and The Lady Vanishes both revolve around the kidnapping of someone in possession of vital information (a crucial clause in a treaty in FC, a coded message in TLV). Most often found in spy films, this takes the form of secret intelligence which gives one entity – whether a country, an organisation, or a person – power over another.

The Death Star plans in A New Hope also come under this category, though George Lucas himself disagrees. Challenging Hitchcock’s key specification that the MacGuffin be unimportant, Lucas considered R2-D2 to be the MacGuffin of A New Hope, feeling that the audience should care about the MacGuffin as much as the characters do. This carries through to the Indiana Jones films, where the Ark of the Covenant and the Holy Grail end up literally saving the day.

Even the plans for the Death Star, pivotal to the final act, border on being too important. Lucas’ evolution of the MacGuffin creates a grey area between MacGuffin and grail, where objects such as the Ring in Lord of the Rings or Infinity War’s Infinity Stones can also be found.

The Treasure

As seen in: To Catch A Thief; Psycho; The Maltese Falcon; The Ocean’s series; No Country For Old Men; The Pink Panther

The most straightforward MacGuffin. A good rule of thumb for this is to ask whether the item could be swapped out for a priceless rubber duck without any change to the plot. If your answer is yes, then the item is a MacGuffin. Rare art, one-of-a-kind diamonds, and unimaginable fortunes all fall under this classification.  

To Catch A Thief has the same ‘wrongly-accused man looking to clear their name’ plot as The 39 Steps and North by Northwest, with diamonds subbed in for secrets. Ostensibly part of Cary Grant’s plan to clear his name, the real story purpose of the diamonds is to bring him into the orbit of Grace Kelly. Once this has been done, the diamonds are relegated to the background. Even the owner is unconcerned about their potential theft, echoing Hitchcock’s own approach to the MacGuffin when she compares her diamonds to “a train ticket that gets me somewhere”. The diamonds get things going, but they’re really not the point.

Outside of The 39 Steps and North by Northwest, the most celebrated MacGuffin of Hitchcock’s filmography belongs to Psycho. Easily forgotten by the film’s end, the money stolen by Janet Leigh is what leads to her checking in at the Bates Motel. As in To Catch A Thief the treasure brings the two leads together before being cast aside for more important matters. So incidental is the money in Psycho that an oblivious Tony Perkins sinks it in the swamp while cleaning up the crime scene.

Somewhere halfway between The Secret and The Treasure lies another variant, the ‘Magical Treasure’. In this case, the treasure has one powerful ability which gives it value. Think the Philosopher’s Stone from Harry Potter. Although frequently found in fantasy or science-fiction, this MacGuffin doesn’t have to be magical. The transit papers in Casablanca qualify, as an item that gives its holders the freedom to leave Morocco.

The Character

As seen in: Rope; The Trouble With Harry; The Lady Vanishes; Foreign Correspondent; Saving Private Ryan

The trickiest of the three to identify. For a character to be considered a MacGuffin, they must be both integral to the plot and completely replaceable. In Saving Private Ryan, the story is driven by the mission to rescue a soldier. There is no story without him. Yet, up until the end, that story would play out identically if it were any other soldier in Ryan’s place. His actions don’t factor into it. By this measure, Apocalypse Now doesn’t qualify. Kurtz’s own actions and megalomania lead to Willard being sent after him.

A good rule of thumb is to ask

* Is there still a film if this character is removed?
* Do any of this character’s actions affect the plot?

If your answer to both is no, you have a MacGuffin.

Using a person as a MacGuffin is a cold thing, and Hitchcock recognises this in Rope. Rope opens with two men murdering their friend David, before throwing a party in the apartment where the body is hidden to see if they can get away with it. David – and the body that could be discovered at any moment – is the film’s MacGuffin. Chillingly he is treated as a MacGuffin by the killers themselves, deciding he is “as good or as bad as any other” to be the victim of their experiment.

The Trouble With Harry takes a much cheerier approach to its corpse. The discovery of a dead body in the countryside brings the neighbourhood together as they try to solve who he is, how he died, and spend a day alternately burying him and digging him up again to avoid police charges. The characters of The Trouble With Harry treat the body with exasperation, as though it were something much more mundane than a corpse. By the film’s end, it has brought two couples together and everyone (of those still alive) agrees things have worked out pretty nicely.   

Finally there’s The Lady Vanishes and Foreign Correspondent. Though listed under the Secret MacGuffin, each has an argument for belonging to this category too. In both, the person carrying the secret is kidnapped and the search for the secret becomes a search for them. Is the MacGuffin the information, or the person in possession of it? The Lady Vanishes makes the strongest case for being the latter. For most of its runtime, the audience has no idea about the code the kidnapped Miss Froy is carrying and nor do the heroes. She is just a disappeared passenger about whom very little is known. It is only after her reappearance that she comes into focus as a character and, ever the professional, only at the end does she reveal the existence of any code.

Unassuming to the point of anonymity, she is the perfect MacGuffin and the perfect spy...

          Tales from the trade war: Businesses caught between retailers and a hard place      Cache   Translate Page      

The past few years have been good for OMG Accessories, the teenage-girl-centered lifestyle brand that fashion industry veteran Anne Harper founded in 2009. And she owes much of that success to China.

By producing handbags and backpacks at a Chinese factory that provided a quick turnaround on small orders, the company has been able to test the market and build up a line of products that is now carried in thousands of stores across the United States. Sales this year have tripled over last year, bringing total revenue to more than $10 million. Harper is now set to move OMG and its 14 employees into a larger showroom in its West 33rd Street building.

Her industry, however, has been caught in the crossfire of an escalating trade war that could put the brakes on any kind of growth. Handbags and backpacks made in China are among the $200 million worth of goods that recently became subject to a trade tariff scheduled to jump to 25% in January.

But OMG is in an unusual position, and not just because of how quickly it's been growing. Last year, in an effort to diversify production for mass orders, Harper and an overseas partner bought a factory in a low-wage, Southeast Asian country that she prefers, for competitive reasons, not to name. About six months ago, as the trade war began heating up, she shifted production to the new factory. About 95% of her fourth-quarter inventory escaped the 10% duty that went into effect in September. She's now positioned to avoid the devastating levy set for 2019.

Harper has been forced to take bigger gambles on her orders, but overall she is glad she planned ahead.

"If I didn't have this factory, [the tariffs] could have destroyed me," she said. "That's how I know that people who are not in my position are in big trouble."

The trade war, which has so far encompassed everything from imported steel and aluminum to electrical equipment and microscopes, began to hit New York's fashion industry in July, when luggage, handbags, footwear, textiles, and leather and faux-leather apparel were listed as being in the next round of restrictions.

Industry representatives have spoken up about fashion's unique reliance on a complex supply chain rooted in China and the difficulties of finding alternatives. But not all of the industry will be hurt in the same way. Some large brands, such as Coach and Kate Spade, began shifting production out of China years ago and moving it to low-wage facilities in Southeast Asia and India. Other companies, such as Steve Madden, ramped up a shift to Cambodia that was already in motion.

In addition, some well-known brands may have big enough margins and a loyal enough customer base to absorb some portion of the tariff and pass along the rest.

But OMG and other brands with price-sensitive products are in no position to experiment. Their retail buyers are saying suppliers will have to eat the cost of the tariff, as the stores have no intention of raising prices.

"If they are selling a bag of mine at $20 and then it goes over $20, even by a dollar, the customer has a different perspective," Harper said. "Shoppers are used to getting a bargain."

There are also drawbacks for small companies that work with factories in low-wage countries. Those nations lack the industrial expertise and transportation infrastructure that China has developed and take roughly double the time to turn around an order—six months as opposed to three. That means Harper is banking that what's "on trend" today, such as her unicorn-decorated handbags, will be just as popular next year.

What's more, the new factory can do only mass-volume production: a minimum of 3,000 units per color and style. That works for what she's selling now, but it would be too big of an order if she wanted to venture into new markets, such as bags for women or backpacks for boys. In fact, most retailers, Harper said, are taking few large orders of any kind.

"Even Kohl's—which has 1,100 stores—once something's proven, they'll order 3,000," Harper said, "but most of the time they're ordering one or two bags for each store. It used to be you'd have 10 of a style, but stores don't have traffic like that anymore."

For many local fashion brands—most of which do not own a factory in a low-wage Asian country—the biggest issue is the uncertainty surrounding the tariffs. "Do you want to disrupt your entire supply chain when there could be an agreement next month?" asked Julia Hughes, president of the United States Fashion Industry Association.

She thinks that the uncertainty has been exacerbated by the lack of clear direction or precise goals in the Trump administration's approach. "In past administrations and trade disputes, almost everybody felt they had a sense of what the outcome would be," Hughes said. "That's not the case here, and that makes it more complicated."

But the administration's defenders argue that President Donald Trump is trying to reverse decades of failed trade policy that allowed China to undermine American manufacturing and appropriate companies' intellectual property as a condition for operating in the country. The short-term pain of higher prices and rearranged supply chains, they say, will yield fairer trade rules for U.S. companies and new life for domestic factories.

Economist Ed Yardeni says American companies doing business with China have in effect supported its expansionist plans and superpower ambitions. He said the 25% tariff is aimed at weakening the country and keeping it from challenging American interests.

"The goal isn't to force concessions out of China but rather to get manufacturers out of China and into either the U.S. (ideally) or to countries such as Mexico that do agree to the terms of bilateral trade deals with the U.S.," Yardeni wrote in a recent report.

But a large-scale return of garment factories to the United States is simply not in the cards, experts said.

"We would have to rebuild a vast infrastructure and find people who actually want to sit at sewing machines, which would require a dramatic increase in immigration," said Susan Scafidi, director of the Fashion Law Institute at Fordham Law School. "People who are born in the U.S. typically don't aspire to work in garment factories."

She added that it was possible other countries, including Mexico, could expand their manufacturing capacity, but those changes would take a lot more time to put in place than a trade deal.

For now some fashion companies are simply looking to manage their business in the short term.

Urban Expressions, which produces a popular line of vegan, faux-leather handbags, took a gamble in July and sped up its production for next year.

"We landed 50% of the goods we planned for Q1 before the first tariff took effect, and most of the other 50% will have landed before the 25% tariff goes into effect," noted Farbod Shakouri, co-founder of the Los Angeles–based company, which has its showroom in New York. He figures that he can keep his retailers supplied through the first nine months of 2019.

He is also holding down costs. Earlier this year Urban Expressions was planning to buy an entire floor of a West 33rd Street building for its New York operations. It put the purchase on hold and is instead moving into a larger showroom in its current building, on West 32nd Street.

Shakouri has no desire to shift production from China. He has tried out factories in Bangladesh, Cambodia and Myanmar and was dissatisfied with the long lead times and their inability to do small production runs. A tariff might make him more receptive to a move, but he would prefer to see a compromise on absorbing the costs.

"A lot of the strategies are going to revolve around the retailers and what they're going to do," Shakouri said. "If they increase prices, then there could be a partnership along the supply chain where everyone eats a little bit into their margins to keep the status quo—until somehow there's a resolution."

Multiple introductions and subsequent transmission of multidrug-resistant Candida auris in the USA: a molecular epidemiological survey.

Lancet Infect Dis. 2018 Oct 04;:

Abstract
BACKGROUND: Transmission of multidrug-resistant Candida auris infection has been reported in the USA. To better understand its emergence and transmission dynamics and to guide clinical and public health responses, we did a molecular epidemiological investigation of C auris cases in the USA.
METHODS: In this molecular epidemiological survey, we used whole-genome sequencing to assess the genetic similarity between isolates collected from patients in ten US states (California, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, and Oklahoma) and those identified in several other countries (Colombia, India, Japan, Pakistan, South Africa, South Korea, and Venezuela). We worked with state health departments, who provided us with isolates for sequencing. These isolates of C auris were collected during the normal course of clinical care (clinical cases) or as part of contact investigations or point prevalence surveys (screening cases). We integrated data from standardised case report forms and contact investigations, including travel history and epidemiological links (ie, patients that had shared a room or ward with a patient with C auris). Genetic diversity of C auris within a patient, a facility, and a state were evaluated by pairwise differences in single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs).
FINDINGS: From May 11, 2013, to Aug 31, 2017, isolates that corresponded to 133 cases (73 clinical cases and 60 screening cases) were collected. Of 73 clinical cases, 66 (90%) cases involved isolates related to south Asian isolates, five (7%) cases were related to South American isolates, one (1%) case to African isolates, and one (1%) case to east Asian isolates. Most (60 [82%]) clinical cases were identified in New York and New Jersey; these isolates, although related to south Asian isolates, were genetically distinct. Genomic data corroborated five (7%) clinical cases in which patients probably acquired C auris through health-care exposures abroad. Among clinical and screening cases, the genetic diversity of C auris isolates within a person was similar to that within a facility during an outbreak (median SNP difference three SNPs, range 0-12).
INTERPRETATION: Isolates of C auris in the USA were genetically related to those from four global regions, suggesting that C auris was introduced into the USA several times. The five travel-related cases are examples of how introductions can occur. Genetic diversity among isolates from the same patients, health-care facilities, and states indicates that there is local and ongoing transmission.

          How Disaster Capitalism Has Ruined Puerto Rico      Cache   Translate Page      
And what Cuba can teach the world about going a different route.

Amnesty International’s Secretary General Kumi Naidoo was recently in Puerto Rico. During his trip, Naidoo looked carefully at the aftermath of Hurricane Maria—the Category 4 hurricane in 2017 that tore through the Caribbean. No island in its path was spared, with Dominica’s Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit rightly calling the damage “mindboggling.” Puerto Rico, a part of the United States of America, was struck hard, but not much harder than the other islands. Yet, the relief, rehabilitation and recovery on this island have been slow—paralytically slow. Naidoo’s visit to Puerto Rico comes a year after Hurricane Maria and yet, as he wrote, “it is shocking that so many people are forced to live in such a precarious situation; even worse when they are part of one of the richest nations in the world.”

In January 2018, the Canadian journalist Naomi Klein spent a week in Puerto Rico as a guest of Professors Self-Assembled in Solidarity Resistance (PAReS). In 2017, before the hurricane, students at the University of Puerto Rico had gone on strike to defend public education. PAReS was created by some professors as a way to join the student struggle. Puerto Rico, over the course of the past decade, has been locked in a series of impressive battles over the suffocation of its public institutions by its local government and by its imperial overlords in Washington, D.C. (Puerto Rico is a colony of the United States).

During her visit, Naomi Klein visited not only areas hit hard by the storm and by the planned disregard by the state, but also places of imagination that try to create popular relief and reconstruction. These places included Casa Pueblo (Adjuntas), Dalma Cartagena’s Agriculture in Harmony with the Environment project (Orocovis) and the Mutual Aid Project (Mariana). It is here, in these places of experimentation and love, that Naomi Klein finds the antidote to the disaster capitalism that ruins Puerto Rico—ruined it before the hurricane, ruined it just after the hurricane and proceeds to ruin it for the future. Her report—first published in the Intercept—has now been released in the form of a small book by Haymarket Books.

Puerto Rico’s disaster is clear. Here is an island, part of the United States since the U.S. war on the Spanish Empire in 1898, where the people have little democratic control of its institutions and resources. Public finances in the island are a mess—the island is overwhelmed by $120 billion in debt and pension liabilities. Payment of these debts is constitutionally mandated, with debt servicing draining the state government of the ability to move an agenda to benefit the just over three million Puerto Ricans. Half the population could not find work before the hurricane struck, with public facilities killed off as the local government throttled them of funds. No wonder, then, that protests across the island had become a normal feature of life before Hurricane Maria.

One area of concern had been Puerto Rico’s electricity grid. As Naomi Klein reports, a shocking 98 percent of its electricity comes from fossil fuels. Without any local oil, gas or coal, Puerto Rico receives its fuel by ship, the people buying electricity at rates higher than paid for on the U.S. mainland. The imported fossil fuels and a centralized electricity grid left the island vulnerable to the shock of the hurricane. The grid collapsed in the hurricane, electricity not available for months and even now spotty in many places. Desire to privatize the electricity company is at the top of the list of desires by the U.S. government. Naomi Klein’s concept of disaster capitalism is made for this situation—as a disaster strikes, money is to be made by the oligarchy on the disaster, both on the defaulted bonds and on the privatization of public resources.

Disaster Socialism

Naomi Klein reports on the small voices of hope from Puerto Rico—organic farming that was able to feed people even as industrial food could not be distributed, solar panels on the roofs of cultural centers that provided energy for communities with no power for months on end. These little pockets of an alternative are precisely the norm in another island in the Caribbean—Cuba.

Cuba, like Puerto Rico, was struck hard by Hurricanes Irma and Maria, but the situation there was utterly different. Suffocated by the U.S. embargo and penalized by centuries of colonial plunder, Cuba—after the revolution—has struggled to create new pathways for its people. When a hurricane comes, Cuba prepares by moving its vulnerable population to safety and by detaching its already decentralized power system. The devastation is managed, the recovery as swift as possible. It should startle the reader that even though Cuba was hit by the same hurricane, it offered to send medical personnel and electrical workers to help the people of Puerto Rico (as it had offered help to the people of New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, a storm that also struck Cuba with equal velocity).

Disaster socialism is a key part of Cuba’s landscape. Its people are organized into voluntary units and its infrastructure is decentralized to mirror the decentralization of governance on the island.

Pushed by the blockade (since 1963) and by a deep interest in sections of the Cuban Communist Party in ecological socialism, the Cubans held an ecological conference in 1980, created the National Commission for the Protection of the Environment and the Preservation of Natural Resources and passed Law no. 31 in 1981 to protect the environment. It was based on this current inside Cuba that Fidel Castro made the comment at the 1992 UN Rio Conference on Environment and Development, “Tomorrow will be too late to do what we should have done a long time ago.”

Cuba offers a window into country-wide projects based on the principles of agro-ecology—urban farming with biopesticides, farmers cooperatives, ban on construction of homes in coastal areas, Integrated Neighborhood Transformation Workshops (TTIB) that bring together neighbors who have a range of skills to solve problems for their own area. There are limits placed by the embargo and by history—reliance upon fossil fuels is one, while reliance upon food imports is another. But, in terms of the energy grid, after Hurricane Katrina in 2005, Cuba reformed its entire system, phasing out incandescent bulbs and breaking up the energy grid. Cuba plans to have a quarter of its energy needs from renewable sources in the next decades and hopes to deepen its use of renewable energy in the years to come.

What was experienced in Cuba was also experienced recently when the left-government in Kerala, India, and the socially conscious people of Kerala worked hard against the catastrophic floods that struck the state. At Tricontinental: Institute for Social Research, there is a full dossier on that flood and on the efforts of the left government and of Kerala’s society. The experience in Cuba, in other words, is not cultural—something about the Cuban people. It is structural—something about the benefits of a socialist society and state.

Naomi Klein rightly points out that the Puertopians—the libertarian anti-social capitalists who want to devour the world—seek to turn Puerto Rico into their little paradise. Their vision for Puerto Rico resembles what Cuba was under the control of the U.S. mafia and monopoly capital before the revolution. Their utopia is Cuba, c. 1958. Klein writes of the confrontation between two utopias, that of the Puertopians and that of the agro-ecological forces from Casa Pueblo and Organización Boricuá. But, there is a wider choice—between the savage disaster capitalism pushed by the U.S. government or the socialist experiments in Cuba and Kerala. The former—disaster capitalism—is a vision of states and corporations that drain social energy. The latter—socialism—works alongside social dynamism to create a new world.

          An Archeologist Explains How 'Narcissist' Christopher Columbus Became a National Symbol      Cache   Translate Page      
Christopher Columbus likely would have slipped back into obscurity if not for American hubris.

Christopher Columbus was a narcissist.

He believed he was personally chosen by God for a mission that no one else could achieve. After 1493, he signed his name “xpo ferens” – “the Christbearer.” His stated goal was to accumulate enough wealth to recapture Jerusalem. His arrogance led to his downfall, that of millions of Native Americans – and eventually fostered his resurrection as the most enduring icon of the Americas.

Columbus in chains

In 1496, Columbus was the governor of a colony based at Santo Domingo, in what is now the modern Dominican Republic – a job he hated. He could not convince the other “colonists,” especially those with noble titles, to follow his leadership.

They were not colonists in the traditional sense of the word. They had gone to the Indies to get rich quick. Because Columbus was unable to temper their lust, the Crown viewed him as an incompetent administrator. The colony was largely a social and economic failure. The wealth that Columbus promised the Spanish monarchs failed to materialize, and he made continuous requests for additional financial support, which the monarchs reluctantly provided.

By 1500, conditions in Hispaniola were so dire that the Crown sent Francisco de Bobadilla to investigate. Bobadilla’s first sight, at the mouth of the Ozama River, was four Spanish “mutineers” hanging from gallows. Under authority from the king, Bobadilla arrested Columbus and his brothers for malfeasance and sent them to Spain in chains. Columbus waited seven months for an audience at the court. He refused to have his chains removed until the meeting, and even asked in his will to be buried with the chains.

Although the Spanish rulers wanted Columbus to disappear, he was allowed one final voyage from 1502 to 1504. He died in 1506, and went virtually unmentioned by historians until he was resurrected as a symbol of the United States.

Inventing Columbus

In the mid-18th century, scholars brought to light long-forgotten documents about Columbus and the early history of the New World.

One of the most important was Bartolome de las Casas’ three-volume “Historia de las Indias.” This book was suppressed in Spain because it documented Spain’s harsh treatment of the native peoples. His depiction of Spanish mistreatment of the Indians provided the foundation for the “Black Legend.” His account “blackened” Spanish character by depicting it as repressive, brutal, intolerant and intellectually and artistically backward. Whatever Spain’s motives, the conquest of the Americas destroyed native cultures and ushered in centuries of African enslavement.

Another was the personal journal of Christopher Columbus from his first voyage, published in 1880. The journal captured the attention of Gustavus Fox, Abraham Lincoln’s assistant secretary of the Navy, who made the first attempt to reconstruct the route of Columbus’s first voyage.

Renewed scholarly interest in Columbus coincided with political motives to deny Spain any remaining claims in the Americas. Spain’s American colonies declared independence, one by one, from the beginning of the 19th century. Simón Bolivar, and other Creole revolutionary leaders, embraced a classical philosophy that highlighted their Roman ancestry to a degree that “Spanish America” was converted to Latin America. The final assault came with the U.S. invasion of Cuba and the six-month Spanish-American War in 1898. Puerto Rico became a U.S. territory, and this year marks the 100th anniversary of the purchase of the U.S. Virgin Islands from Denmark.

Columbus likely would have slipped back into obscurity if not for American hubris.

The Columbian Exposition

In 1889, France put on what reviewers described as the most spectacular World’s Fair possible. Held on the Champs de Mars in Paris, its crowning achievement was the Eiffel Tower.

After Paris, the United States set out to prove to the world it was the equal of Europe by staging its own World’s Fair. No one has claimed credit for the theme of the Exposition, but the stage was set when American writer and author of “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow,” Washington Irving, attempted to revive his flagging career by writing the first biography of Christopher Columbus in English, published in 1828.

His embellishments created the great hero whose legend the fair celebrated: “He was one of those men of strong natural genius, who appear to form themselves; who, from having to contend at their very outset with privations and impediments, acquire an intrepidity in braving and a facility in vanquishing difficulties.”

The Columbian Exposition and World’s Fair was timed to coincide with the 400th anniversary of Columbus’s arrival in the New World. President Benjamin Harrison presided over opening ceremonies on Oct. 12, 1892. That same day, the Pledge of Allegiance was introduced in American schools.

Chicago created the “White City” – a collection of nine “palaces” designed by America’s greatest architects, conceived and constructed in only 26 months. Outside the White City was the grittier Midway, which is now a common feature of carnivals and fairs. The fair gave visitors their first taste of carbonated soda, Cracker Jacks and Juicy Fruit chewing gum. An enormous 264-foot-tall Ferris wheel transported 36 cars each carrying up to 60 people on a 20-minute ride. More than 28 million tickets were sold during the six months the Columbian Exposition was open. Columbus was the darling of 19th-century mass media.

Seventy-one portraits of Columbus, all posthumous, hung in a Grand Gallery. Following Irving’s descriptions, Columbus became the embodiment of the American Dream. The son of simple wool weavers and someone who had a great dream challenged the greatest scholars of his day, and boldly went where no man had gone before. Better yet, he was Italian. America could deny that Spain had any part in the discovery of the New World.

President Harrison declared a national holiday to coincide with opening of the Columbian Exposition – Columbus Day. It was officially recognized by Congress in 1937.

In 1992, as the United States prepared for the 500th anniversary of Columbus’s arrival in the Americas, the pendulum swung again. The devastating impact of his “discovery” on native peoples throughout the Americas led protesters to decry Columbus as a “terrorist.”

Columbus the man died more than 500 years ago. Columbus the legend is still being dismantled. His story illustrates the blurred borders between myth and history – how an architect of destruction was turned into a national symbol.

This is an updated version of an article originally published on Oct. 10, 2016.

This article has been updated to correct the name of the president who presided over the Columbian Exposition’s opening ceremonies.

          What cookbooks are you lusting after or buying these days? September, 2018 edition!      Cache   Translate Page      
I’ve been on an old cookbook buying spree of late. Over the summer, a friend told me about a North Indian cookbook her best friend’s mother gave her when she got married 25 years ago - the same book that lady had learned to cook from over 25 years earlier... the book dates back to 1961. So I tracked it down it and bought it. It’s very well written, with explanations, multiple methods, and simplifications where possible... written for the novice Indian cook (well, in those days, the young new indian bride living far from her mother and mother-in-law). It’s quaintly titled “Mrs. Balbir Singh’s Indian Cookery.”

          3 Things the Church Must Do to Survive in This Culture      Cache   Translate Page      

In November, I will celebrate 50 years of being given the joy and privilege of ministering. It is and always will be the best thing that God could ever have called me to do with my life.

Over the years I've witnessed incredible miracles and walked through challenging wilderness seasons. These mountaintop and valley seasons have taught me a great deal about myself, my God and His kingdom, and they have caused me to grow and stretch in ways I never could have foreseen at the outset of my ministry career. As I look back, it's clear that my most significant lessons could be summed up in these six words of advice:

1. Be bold.

2. Be broken.

3. Be bright.

While studying the life of David and his desire for the presence of God in his life and in the lives of His people, I realized that throughout every battle and conflict, you can find the evidence of boldness, brokenness and brightness in him. These characteristics in David are what I believe made him a man after God's own heart, and they are why God was able to use him to impact the world around him, including his government. They are what will allow you and me to make an impact on our churches, our communities and our nation too.

As I was watching the Senate hearing in Washington this week, my heart was broken for where we are as a country. We are broken, divided and hostile toward each other. The enemy is saying the church is bigoted, racist, and condescending and that we doubt the Word of God. The devil wants people to believe the church is a thing of the past, so he whispers lies that cause people to question why we would pay attention to something written thousands of years ago. As for believers, even among our ranks there is little evidence of brokenness before the living, mighty, and holy God. There are very few who are willing to humble themselves and repent, or embrace God's love. Each side is flush with boldness but woefully lacking in the other two characteristics that made David so successful.

I am not at all saying the church should step back, stifling its voice in an attempt to find this balance. On the contrary. We cannot take responsibility for the actions and reactions of those with whom we are at odds, but we have a mandate to serve God obediently—and that service requires our boldness and brokenness before Him, even if it makes us uncomfortable.

Although most people who know me today wouldn't easily believe it, I was painfully shy as a child. Because of that shyness, when I was called upon to do bold things, I would cry. But here's the thing: Crying never stopped me. Even when I felt embarrassed of the spotlight or longed to disappear into the background, I knew I couldn't walk away from what I had been called to do, even if stepping out and being boldly obedient would bring painful tears that might make me the subject of ridicule. Before long I realized an important lesson, one I want you to consider today: Through my tears came the greatest breakthroughs of my life.

When our boldness comes out of brokenness before our God, the light of His presence breaks through, allowing the lost world around us to see the brightness of His glory.

The world wants to see Jesus, and right now they are more ready for Him than the church is ready for the world. But God is bringing balance to this area. I believe God is breaking the times of leanness of Spirit, and we get to witness it firsthand. He is clearing the air of a lot of junk in America. Don't be surprised but rather rejoice when you hear of outpourings of the Holy Spirit. God is birthing Holy Spirit boldness in the church, but it will only come out brokenness and humility. Watch, see, and move by faith as He releases the brightness of His glory.

The church in our nation must step up and show the world who God truly is and what the power of His love can do in our broken world. We must show them who we really are—bold, broken and bright with the love and light of Christ, the morning star.

Here's another way to put it: "You're here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We're going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don't think I'm going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I'm putting you on a light stand. Now that I've put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand—shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you'll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven" (Matt. 5:16, MSG). {eoa}

          FMI requests prayer as world awaits Asia Bibi verdict      Cache   Translate Page      
Pakistan (MNN) -- Three Pakistani Supreme Court judges decided the fate of Asia Bibi yesterday, but they’re keeping that verdict under lock and key for now. More details here. Nehemiah* is a Pakistani pastor helped by FMI. He says the judges might be waiting for a more opportune moment to release their decision. “Maybe…they don’t want to give a special verdict at this time because of the situation in Pakistan,” he says, describing the pressure and tension surrounding this high-profile case.

Who’s Asia Bibi?

Asia Bibi, a Christian mother of five, has spent the last nine years in prison for a crime she didn’t commit. Her case made her the “poster child” of Christian persecution as a result of Pakistan’s blasphemy laws. As such, the judges’ verdict in this case carries serious repercussions. In 2009, Bibi’s Muslim co-workers accused her of blasphemy. She was convicted and sentenced to death the following year. As described here, Pakistan’s infamous blasphemy laws are often used explicitly to persecute Christians. “The people who falsely charged her, there is no evidence, no evidence at all,” notes Nehemiah. Salman Taseer, a former governor of the central Punjab province, spoke out on behalf of Asia Bibi and wanted to repeal Pakistan's blasphemy laws. However, in 2011, the politician’s bodyguard Mumtaz Qadri shot Taseer 28 times in Islamabad’s Kohsar Market. Qadri was hailed as a hero, according to DW, but eventually met his demise:

"Qadri was sent to the gallows in 2016, and his supporters believe that Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's government executed him under international pressure. So if the Supreme Court reverses the death sentence now, the right-wing parties and groups are likely to take to the streets. They fear that any concession to Bibi, or any other blasphemy victim, might lead to amendments in the Islamic laws and open a door to the secularization of Pakistan."

Asia Bibi has ping-ponged between courtrooms and a prison cell for more than nine years. There’s mounting international pressure on Pakistan to free her. At the same time, militant Islamists are threatening violence if the judges don’t carry out her death sentence. "If there is any attempt to hand her [Bibi] over to a foreign country, there will be terrible consequences," one group said in a statement.

What will happen next?

The Supreme Court judges aren’t saying when they will release their verdict. While there is no clear “next step” for Bibi’s case, Nehemiah says there are a few directions the verdict could go. If the judges uphold Bibi’s conviction, her only option would be a direct appeal to Pakistan’s president for mercy. Asia Bibi would become the first person executed for blasphemy in Pakistan if the president rejects her cry for help. Or, the judges could overturn Bibi’s conviction and she would be released from prison – but she still wouldn’t be safe. Bibi and her family would become “high priority targets” for radical Islamic groups scattered throughout Pakistan, Nehemiah says. There’s also a third option on the table. The judges might suspend the death penalty, Nehemiah explains, and change it to life imprisonment. “In Pakistan, life imprisonment is 14 years total,” he says. The start date would be the only thing in question. “They will either start the 14 years from scratch, or they will subtract what she’s already served from the total sentence,” says Nehemiah.

“The most probable thing is they will execute her, so please pray [about] this.”

Please ask the Lord to embolden the Supreme Court judges and remove their fear. Pray they will not succumb to the threats of radicals, but that instead their verdict will be rooted in justice. Pray for God’s supernatural comfort and peace to surround Asia Bibi and her family. We’ll be watching this case closely.

          Homem passa por reabilitação após caso documentado de 'vício' na Netflix       Cache   Translate Page

Médicos indianos relataram um caso considerado inédito no país: um paciente de 26 anos teve de passar por uma "reabilitação digital" após apresentar um comportamento compulsivo com a plataforma de streaming Netflix. Desempregado, o homem passou seis meses seguidos assistindo a séries e filmes por mais de sete horas diárias. 

Os especialistas constataram que o comportamento compulsivo levou o jovem a apresentar prejuízos graves no sono, exaustão e problemas na visão. Ele foi levado para o Instituto Nacional de Neurosciência e Saúde Mental que fica na cidade de Bangalore, capital do estado de Karnataka. 

Em entrevista à imprensa local, o médico Kumar Sharma afirmou que o paciente utilizou um hábito cotidiano para "esquecer" de seus problemas, mas que isso levou a um quadro de compulsão e dependência. Sharma afirmou que o jovem acessava a Netflix logo ao acordar, mesmo com os pedidos de sua família para que ele realizasse outras atividades. Para realizar o tratamento, os médicos também estão utilizados técnicas alternativas, como a meditação.

No final do ano passado, um caso relatado afirma que a Netflix entrou em contato com um usuário após ele passar horas assistindo à série "The Office" em um período de uma semana. A empresa enviou um e-mail perguntando se tudo estava bem, já que seus hábitos haviam mudado. De acordo com o usuário, essa mensagem o fez sentir melhor, já que havia alguém se importando com ele.

          Timses Jokowi: Sandiaga Bandingkan Nasi Ayam di Jakarta dan Singapura Tidak Apple to Apple      Cache   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Jakarta - Calon wakil presiden Sandiaga Uno membandingkan harga nasi ayam di Singapura yang dinilainya jauh lebih murah daripada di Jakarta. Dirinya menyebut harga nasi ayam di Singapura itu Rp 35 ribu sedangkan di Jakarta Rp 50 ribu.

Terkait hal itu, Wakil Ketua Umum Tim Kampanye Nasional Jokowi-Ma'ruf, Arsul Sani, mengatakan kemungkinan yang dimbil Sandiaga sebagai contoh adalah tempat makan murah di Singapura.

"Mungkin Pak Sandi belinya itu, nasi ayamnya itu di Warteg India sebelah Masjid Sultan (di Kampung Glam, Singapura). Itu pun tidak Rp 35 ribu. Saya kan suka makan disitu. 5 dollar Singapura itu, berarti Rp 53 ribuan-lah. Sementara beliau makan nasi ayam itu paling enggak kalau di Restoran Padang di Natrabu atau di Garuda, iya mesti beda kelasnya," ucap Arsul di Posko Cemara, Jakarta, Selasa (9/10/2018).

Dia menegaskan, jika perbandingan yang dilakukan Sandiaga Uno restorannya sama kualitasnya, bisa dipastikan akan lebih mahal di Singapura ketimbang di Jakarta.

"Tapi kalau restoran tempat beli makannya comparable, apple to apple, pasti lebih mahal di Singapura. Katakanlah kita makan sama-sama di food court misalnya Takashimaya Centre (Takashimaya Shopping Centre, Orchard Road, Singapura) dengan di sini Plaza Indonesia atau Grand Indonesia, pasti lebih mahal disana," jelas Arsul.

Dia pun mencontohkan, jika salah membandingkan tempat, maka bisa saja lebih mahal di Jakarta daripada di Singapura.

"Tapi kalau bandinginnya dengan Plaza Indonesia atau Grand Indonesia dengan di Lucky Plaza Singapura, itu bisa lebih mahal di situ (Lucky Plaza). Jadi kita harus apple to apple tempatnya lah. Kalau apple to apple tempatnya, enggak mungkin harga makanan dan minuman Singapura lebih murah daripada yang ada di Jakarta," pungkasnya.

 

 

Perbandingan Sandiaga

Sandiaga membandingkan harga bahan pangan Indonesia dengan Singapura dan India. Ia mengatakan, berdasarkan informasi yang ia dapatkan, harga berbagai bahan pangan di India seperti beras dua kali lipat lebih murah dibandingkan dengan di Indonesia.

Tak hanya itu, harga sepiring nasi ayam di Singapura juga lebih murah dibandingkan dengan di Indonesia. Jika di Singapura harga sepiring nasi ayam sekitar 3,5 dolar Singapura (SGD) atau sekitar Rp 35 ribu, di Indonesia harganya sekitar Rp 50 ribu.

Hal ini disampaikan Sandi usai bertemu para milenial di kawasan Tebet, Jakarta Selatan beberapa waktu lalu.

"Jadi kalau misalnya di Singapura sepiring chicken rice itu 3,5 dolar (SGD) atau Rp 35 ribu, di sini mungkin bisa Rp 50 ribu," sebutnya.

Sandiaga mengatakan informasi ini ia dapatkan dari tim ekonomi Prabowo-Sandi. Tim ekonomi tersebut mengumpulkan informasi tersebut dari berbagai sumber data.

"Tim ekonomi yang menyadur informasi-informasi yang didapat dari beberapa data, data dari World Bank yang menyatakan bahwa harga bahan pangan di Indonesia jauh lebih mahal, dua kali lipat dari di India. Dan sepiring makan siang seperti di Bebek Kaleyo ini kalau dibandingkan dengan kualitas yang sama di Singapura jauh lebih mahal di sini," jelas Sandiaga.

Informasi dari tim ekonomi ini menjadi masukan bagi pasangan Prabowo-Sandi untuk lebih fokus menggarap isu ekonomi yang akan diangkat selama masa kampanye ini. Menurut dia, mahalnya harga pangan di Indonesia menjadi hal prioritas yang akan mereka perbaiki.

          LGP expresses concern over attack on North Indians in Gujarat      Cache   Translate Page      
The Lok Gathbandhan Party (LGP) has expressed concern over the attack on North Indian labourers in several areas of Gujarat.The LGP said the rise of parochial sentiments, following a crime by a labour from Bihar, caused massive exodus from the state, which is not in the interest of Gujarat.The Spokesman of the party said here on Tuesday that it is reminiscent of attacks on north Indians in Maharashtra by Shiv Sena in 1960s, in Assam in 1980s and in Karnataka in 2012. The hate campaign by a group of Gujarat against north Indians leading to violence is a serious development and the state government cannot escape the responsibility for the crisis, he said.The Spokesman said the entire north Indian community cannot be punished for the crime of one person, which simply reflected the political motives. The rising hatred against the migrant labourers on the plea of loss of jobs for the local youth seems to be aimed at encouraging parochialism by politicians. This also contradicts oneness of India, the Spokesman said and added that the stoic silence of the top BJP leadership is intriguing. The Spokesman said the recent announcement of Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani to guarantee 80 per cent industrial jobs to domiciled residents could also force other states to go for seminal measures, thereby affecting people from Gujarat. He said BJPs claim of sab ka sath, sab ka vikas will negate the over-all development of the country. The Spokesman said that BJP will pay a political price for what is happening in its so-called model state in north Indian states, especially in UP and Bihar. Attacks have also diminished the reputation of enterprising Gujarati community known for globalisation and finding opportunities in distant lands. The Spokesman said that attacks indicated that unemployment in Gujarat is rising and is becoming a political flashpoint, he said, adding the Gujarat government should prosecute all those responsible for attacks on poor migrant workers.UNI MB KPV RJ 2300

          BJP in Gujarat responsible for attacks on migrants: Owaisi      Cache   Translate Page      
AIMIM President and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi on Tuesday alleged that BJP government in Gujarat was completely responsible for the attacks on Hindi-speaking migrants. Talking to reporters here, Mr Owaisi accused the BJP government in Gujarat of utter failure to stop the exodus of Hindi-speaking migrant from north Indian states who have been fleeing Gujarat in droves over the past few days fearing for their lives.Few days back, there have been attacks on people from north Indian and north-eastern states in Gujarat, following the arrest of a man from Bihar for the alleged rape of a 14-month old girl in Gujarats Sabarkantha district. The attacks have prompted people from the other states to rush out of Gujarat, fearing for their lives. The mass exodus of north Indians from the BJP led Gujarat and the psychosis of fear that has gripped north Indians in that state, he said it is nothing but failure of that government in ensuring law and order in Gujarat .The BJP government in Gujarat should take responsibility to create confidence among the migrant workers and should made arrangements for their security, he said. The situation, which gripped Gujarat, clearly indicated that the government (Gujarat) had failed to maintain law and order in that state, he also alleged. UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, who support the NDA, should meet the people from their states in Gujarat, to instill confidence among the migrants and ensure their safe travel back home, he added.UNI KNR RJ 2255

Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) President Capt N Uttam Kumar Reddy on Tuesday appealed to the Muslim community not to vote for TRS in the next elections, if they wish to defeat Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Voting for TRS is likely voting for BJP as KCR is an agent of Narender Modi, he said, while addressing a meeting at Gandhi Bhavan on the occasion of joining of ex-TRS leader of Mahabubnagar district Mohammed Ibrahim into the Congress. Calling KCR an anti-Muslim, Mr Reddy said the TRS government not only neglected the minorities welfare, but damaged their cause, wherever possible. He said the KCR has openly cheated the Muslim community on the issue of 12 per cent Muslim reservation. Poor Muslims hoped for an increase in their quota in jobs and education to 12% and voted for TRS in last elections with the confidence that KCR would honour his promise by implementing it within four months after coming to power. But KCR did nothing in four-and-a-half years. No one in the history of independent India cheated Muslims in such a manner, he said. Mr Reddy said KCR cheated the Muslims on several fronts with active support from PM Modi. KCR remained silent when BJP Govt kept reducing funds for minority welfare every year. Despite holding the portfolio of minorities welfare, KCR did not write a single letter to the Prime Minister on issues concerning the minorities, he said. He also accused KCR of making tall claims of allocating Rs 2,000 crore for the minorities welfare. He challenged KCR to also present the actual figures of amount spent on minorities welfare, compared to the allocations.MORE UNI VV RJ 2218

India has moved closer to self-dependence in precision-guided smart glide bombs as it conducted covert trials of these bombs successfully at Pokharan firing range in Jaisalmer on August 17 last month (Friday).Christened as Garuthmaa and Garudaa , the glide bombs are being indigenously developed by the Defence Research and Develoopment Organisation (DRDO) .Of these two drop trails, the test of Garudaa, the non-winged glide-bomb, was carried out to evaluate its precision for a range of 30 kilometres on Thursday while in another set of drop trails on Friday, both Garudaa and Garuthmaa were successfully tested from a Su-30 MKI aircraft, a DRDO official said in a newsletter released recently by the Aeronautical Society of India (AESI, Hyderabad branch) at a meeting here.Garuthmaa, the 1,000 kg winged smart glide bomb, was tested for its maximum 100-km range , Top DRDO officials termed the tests as a major success.Sources in DRDO said that guided by on-board navigation systems, Garuthmaa was tested for its first phase of trials in Thar Desert for assessing its occuracy in hitting a target after gliding for 100 kilometres. The bomb was dropped from a Su-30 MKI aircraft for which we got full support from the Pune airbase.The IAF has been involved in development and related trials of this smart bomb from the beginning, said an official, adding that non-winged Garudaa was tested for 30-km range and would be tested for bigger ranges (up to 100 Km) in future. Garudaa, the non-winged version of this guided bomb with a range of 30 kilometres was tested initially three years back.DRDO officials shared that contrary to the conventional dumb bombs which take a free flight after being dropped, guided bombs like Guruthmaa have winglets and on-board navigation and guidance systems enabling these to hit the target with precision after being dropped from varying heights.Both Garuthamaa and Garudaa are a brainchild of various laboratories of DRDO including Research Centre Imarat in Hyderabad, Defence Avionics Research Establishment (DARE) in Bengaluru, Terminal Ballistics Research laboratory (TBRL) in Chandigarh, Armaments Research and Development Establishment (ARDE) in Pune.UNI KNR KPV RHK 2234
          Unlocking the Full Potential of IoT Farming - [BTC Media Sponsor]      Cache   Translate Page      
Flux Thumb 2 Good

You don’t need to be an agriculture expert to see the writing on the wall. Current farming methods just aren’t working anymore for most farmers of the world.

There are 2 billion smallholder farms managing fewer than five acres (PDF). They are growing most of the world’s food, but if you have ever visited China, India or any African country, you will have seen the challenges of their reality: yields aren’t what they used to be; climate change, drought and pesticides are getting stronger; and kids are moving to the city. For these farmers, the difference between a good and a bad crop can mean the difference between survival and starvation for them and their families. With even a modest improvement in productivity, lives can be dramatically impacted.  

It’s not just farmers themselves who have a stake in improving the system. Improving agricultural practices has also become a key political issue in many countries, such as India, where Prime Minister Narendra Modi has vowed to double the income of its 200 million farmers by 2022. The government of Vietnam has pledged incentives to help the country’s farmers remain competitive while managing the ever-growing challenge of climate change.

Politicians today can make these promises because they know they are on the cusp of a tech revolution. Low-cost sensors coupled with the internet have created an industry called IoT, or the internet of things. It’s where your hardware can go online and interface with the internet. Most people know Alexa as one of the most common home solutions; self-driving cars are soon to be in the same league.

So what about self-driving farms? Ones where hundreds of sensors listen to the plants and automate critical parts of the process, helping farmers avoid a locust invasion or tumbling prices at the market. Farming solutions can easily monitor soil temperature, water levels and other critical metrics that can be delivered as simple insights to help farmers understand and respond to environmental conditions with precision never before possible. One step further and farms can eventually plant and manage themselves. It’s not a far-fetched dream.

But, when it comes to putting IoT farming technology into practice, there remains a steep challenge. To date, most of the “smart” farming devices that exist are only accessible to big chemical and food corporations. They are siloed technologies in that the data they collect stays in very specific buckets, not to be shared with humankind, ever. These technologies are prohibitively expensive and complicated to use.

There is a reason why analysts label companies like Monsanto, an agriculture behemoth with revenues of $15 billion a year that was acquired by Bayer this year, the “best internet of things” stock investment. Historically, these corporations have held the power of IoT-assisted farming almost solely in their hands, leaving the world’s small-scale farmers to toil away with the same technology they have used for centuries. Megacorps like Monsanto and Syngenta like the deal because this is where so much revenue comes from: the toil and struggles of the small-hold farmer who must use augmented seeds and pesticides to match those seeds. If they don’t “buy in,” there will be no crop.

Individual solutions are popping up everywhere, from smart drip irrigation to optimal fertilizer use, yet they are continually being developed in silos instead of taking into account all potential interactions. Ninety-nine percent of these companies are built to be sold to tech giants. The founders of these companies see an opportunity to greenwash “environmental advancements” for lucrative commercial opportunities. They don’t care about, nor do they see, the big picture.

At Flux Protocol, a team of passionate dreamers and dedicated doers believe that this state of affairs is finally set to change. By developing MICO, a low-cost, open-hardware platform that connects to any quality analog or digital sensor paired with a data encapsulation standard and an incentivization layer for distributed storage and intelligence, the Flux solution will extend the benefits of smart farming to everyone and unlock a future of abundance for all.

The Problem With IoT Farming

As far as IoT farming goes, we have the technology. What we don’t have is a good way to place it in the hands of the people who need it most.

That’s primarily because the lion’s share of smart device development for the agriculture industry is controlled by large corporations. Their goal — understandably enough to them (not to us) — is to leverage IoT devices to improve yields for their own crops, and those of their partners, including big banks and despots. As a result, smallholder or subsistence farmers are left out of the equation.

Small-hold farmers, the very farmers we are rooting for here at Flux, have yet to realize a direct benefit from the IoT revolution as a whole. Existing IoT and blockchain implementations have mostly been centered around supply chain solutions collecting information only after their products have been harvested and left the farm.

Small individual farmers have benefited relatively little from these supply chain solutions. It’s fairly intuitive to use technology to monitor the inventory of a harvested bushel of fruit. It’s much harder, and more expensive, to acquire and maintain IoT sensors that will continuously collect data from their natural systems, like soil temperature, humidity, carbon sequestration, water retention, etc. With Flux, however, these marginalized farmers are able to comprehensively track the process from seed to harvest, or from calf to bull. Not only do these insights help increase harvest yields and reduce input expenditures, Flux-enabled sensors also aid in verifying organic or grass-fed status, earning the farmer significantly more revenue.

MICO and the Democratization of IoT Farming

MICO-based solutions, which are being developed by the Flux team, promise to change this.

You can think of MICO as the Raspberry Pi or military-grade Arduinos of IoT farming. They are small, flexible and extensible electronic boards that serve a variety of purposes and use cases. With 16 inputs and outputs (IOs) that connect any off-the-shelf analog or digital sensor combined with mesh networking capabilities, MICO-based solutions provide any grower with an opportunity to collect natural data points regardless of their location or the size of their growing operation.

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

By deploying MICO-based devices, farmers can start collecting the exact data points needed to improve their future harvest(s). This could be rainfall levels for a farmer struggling to keep crops irrigated or air temperature for a home grower concerned with optimizing growing conditions in an artificial environment. It could be water salinity levels for an aquafarming site or benchmarking fields for growers trying to determine which part of their land is suitable for the upcoming season.

With a base price of around $25, MICO circuit boards will be affordable for anyone, not just big agricultural companies. As the project evolves, Flux will be creating a number of MICO-based solutions directly aimed at empowering farmers with a variety of different needs.

Developer-Friendly IoT Farming

The power of MICO-based devices goes further than just providing an affordable way to collect natural data. These solutions are just one component of a larger framework that empowers developers to create custom applications that transform natural data into AI-derived insights and value.

Part of that framework is a new data standard that Flux is developing, and which the newly hatched TARA Alliance will be evangelizing to any individual or entity collecting environmental data. By making it easy to share data, the protocol will help farmers build solutions that can help their peers maximize the collective value of the data being captured. On top of its open data standard, the TARA Alliance will promulgate its standard and solutions addressing a wide range of issues that NGOs, governments and academia are seeking to impact.

With this in mind, Flux incentivizes farmers to collect data and build new MICO-based solutions via a native token, FLUX. When collected data is used to produce insights on the platform, the creators of that data will be rewarded in FLUX tokens on a pro-rata basis. Additionally, developers are encouraged to build new applications and solutions on the open market, thanks to bounties hosted on the protocol.

What about farmers or developers who lack the capital to develop novel IoT-assisted farming solutions? Flux has an answer for these people, too. Flux’s Proof of Impact program provides funding to help them get off the ground and further accelerate ecosystem network effects.

In all of these ways, Flux is striving to unlock a future of abundance for everyone. By combining modern IoT farming technology with an incentive to collect data, Flux is positioning our global society to make good on its vision of improving the work of farmers everywhere.

Alex Bregman is not happy with the seeming disrespect shown towards the defending World Series champs during the ALDS. Bregman’s Houston Astros were matched up with the Cleveland Indians in the ALDS, which ended on Monday thanks to Houston’s series sweep. One issue that stood out was all three games of the series beginning early; they had start times of 2 p.m., 4:30 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. ET. The games all started early because they were played the same day as the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox, who got the primetime evening slot. We heard plenty of complaints about that before the series began. What did Bregman think about the early start times? “Does Tiger Woods tee off at 8:00 am when he’s going to win a Masters? Does Floyd Mayweather fight the first fight of the night? No, he’s the main event, right? So the ‘Stros need to be playing primetime television, 7:00 pm.

          A Small Spark of Hope for Democracy in the Indian Ocean      Cache   Translate Page      

From the genocide of the Rohingya, to the violent crackdown on peaceful protesters in Nicaragua, to the surprising success of right-wing populism in Brazil, to the increasingly virulent strains of isolationist nationalism that have been taking root in eastern Europe, it’s a grim time for democracy around the world. But an unexpected source of hope has emerged from the Maldives, an island nation known for little more than its idyllic beaches and long history of authoritarian rule.

Since 2013, the reign of President Abdulla Yameen brought mass abuses of human rights to the Maldives: the jailing or exiling of opposition leaders, increased control over state institutions, withdrawal from Commonwealth, and widespread corruption are only the tip of the iceberg for the small, tropical country.

But on Sept. 23, over 90 percent of Maldivians voted in the first general elections since Yameen came to power five years ago—and voted overwhelmingly for the opposition, Ibrahim Mohamed Solih of the Maldivian Democratic Party, who won after receiving 58 percent of the votes.

But while a celebration is in order, it’s worth remembering that the Maldives has been here before. When two of us first came to work with Maldivians in 2006, we were impressed by the brave and committed Maldivian people, who acted time and time again with courage and talent to defend democracy within their country. And though both of us spent more than a decade with brave Serbian activists fighting the Slobodan Milosevic regime, and years after that training and educating democracy defenders from Kiev, Ukraine, and Tbilisi, Georgia, to Caracas, Venezuela, and Harare, Zimbabwe, through our organization, CANVAS. we could see immediately that Maldivian activists are unique in so many ways.

In 2008, after a 30-year-long period of dictatorship under Maumoon Abdul Gayoom—whose iron-hand rule of the island nation was characterized by a low tolerance for protests and any vocal opposition combined with a high appetite for nepotism and corruption—overwhelming popular support brought “Anni”—the popular nickname for former journalist Mohamed Nasheed—to power as the Maldives’ first democratically elected president. Anni was successful for the first three years of his presidency as he worked to combat radical Islam and mobilize the tiny island nation to become a leading global voice in the fight against climate change. But his term ended prematurely after three years when, after a coup led by parts of the judiciary and the military, Nasheed resigned after reportedly being held at gunpoint.

Key foreign powers quickly signed on to the new regime’s interpretation that this was a voluntary resignation; the governments of Britain, the United States, and India quickly recognized the new government as valid. However, Nasheed and his followers asserted that a coup had taken place and that he had been forced to resign at gunpoint. The Commonwealth met and concluded that an international investigation needed to take place, but no further action was taken to investigate the constitutionality of the regime change from an international perspective.

Just a day after the regime change took place, Nasheed penned an op-ed for the New York Times detailing his attempts to reform the entire governmental system of the Maldives and the struggles that he faced attempting to do so. He writes, “The dictator can be removed in a day, but it can take years to stamp out the lingering remnants of his dictatorship.” His words proved prophetic. At the next general elections in 2013, Abdulla Yameen (the half-brother of former dictator Gayoom) was elected, and the Maldives returned to old habits. Under Yameen, government funds were embezzled, peaceful protests were suppressed, independent media outlets were shut down, and political prisoners were jailed. Now it seems that the collective international community has finally exhaled in relief. The Maldives may, in fact, have a democratic transition of power. Yameen’s regime is finally over.

Recent history has shown that we cannot allow this positive development to cloud our judgment and lull us into a false sense of security. About 90 percent of the Maldives’ population voted in this year’s elections, showing an unprecedented amount of engagement in Maldivian democracy. The international community owes it to Maldivian citizens to keep watch and ensure a democratic transition of power occurs in November, and furthermore aid the new government in ensuring it can implement positive changes to ensure the longevity of the country’s democracy.

It is especially imperative that we pay close attention to the Maldives in the wake of this election, taking into account the lessons that we have learned through the forced resignation of Nasheed. The Maldives is a relatively small nation, and the apathy of the international community toward the continuation of its democracy not only hurts the country but has a negative impact on the entire world. Had it continued along its path as a democracy last time, thrusting itself into the spotlight as the first Muslim-majority country with peaceful transitions of power within its democratic institutions, and had the world not ignored this tiny island nation, the Maldives might have brought its institutions, expertise, and goodwill toward other countries in the region, maybe even setting the example, case study, and inspiration, and thus radically changing the context through which the Arab Spring occurred only three years after Nasheed`s victory in 2008.

Major media outlets have focused most of their attention on the geopolitical impact of this change, especially the fact that Yameen had been turning a country closer to China, while Solih’s MDP has always advocated for closer ties to the most populous democracy, India. But there is another very important arena in which the smallest Asian country can affect not only the region, but the world—the struggle for democracy.

The world should recognize Solih’s presidency as a beacon of light for other Muslim countries that have experienced similar issues in transitioning to power. Instead of ignoring the potential of the Maldives, we need to instead do our best to nurture Maldivian democracy until it is able to fully bloom—and this means that the international community must do its best to push the Maldives toward a few key changes. At least two avenues of reform are clear: fixing the judiciary and building a muscle of the civil society.

Amnesty International has regularly called for the reform of the Maldives’ infamously corrupt judiciary. The courts have been used by the government to crush the opposition—most notably in the trial of Nasheed shortly after he was forced out of the presidency. He was sentenced to 13 years in prison for terrorism charges and denied access to a lawyer by two judges who had already served as witnesses against him during the investigation phase. In this case, the Maldives needs critical outside aid in order to form an educated, experienced, and corruption-free set of judges.

Second, and even more important, is to empower and support another backbone of vivid democracy: Maldivian civil society. The issue in the Maldives is not that people are unwilling to engage with democracy—they have proven their commitment twice in the past decade by voting in numbers unimaginable for Western democracies. But the international community can help, guide, equip, and train already mobilized Maldivian citizens into a solid and lasting civic power that will make any further efforts to hijack democracy in Maldives impossible.

The new hope for world democracy may be rising in Maldives. This time, democracy lovers of this world must not miss the importance of helping it.

           印度外卖市场的“中国内战”       Cache   Translate Page      

如果要选出2018年前三季度印度创业圈最热闹的赛道,非食品科技领域莫属。从2月到9月,资本的脚步从未停歇。

接踵而至的投资人,将食品科技行业的“双子星”Zomato和Swiggy相继送入独角兽俱乐部。

有趣的是,中国资本在这场融资热潮中担纲了主角,阿里巴巴、美团、腾讯、携程相继现身。阿里和美团分别向Zomato和Swiggy注资,腾讯传出有意站队Swiggy,携程也和Zomato传出了绯闻。

1

中国投资者支持的三家食品科技平台

若腾讯的投资落地,印度外卖行业的格局则成为了名副其实的“下一个中国”——腾讯和美团抢到了行业龙头Swiggy,阿里支持市场份额居次位的Zomato,滴滴则通过持有Ola股份也在外卖市场占有一席之地。

中国投资人的入局,将给印度的外卖市场带来什么?

钱从东方来

研究公司Tracxn的一份报告显示,2018年上半年印度食品科技行业已经吸引了4.73亿美元的资本,其2017年全年的净利润仅为1.34亿美元。

但重要的是食品科技市场的潜力。咨询公司Red Seers 2017年的报告称,按商品总价值(GMV)计算,到2021年,印度食品技术产业的规模预计将翻一番,达到25亿至35亿美元。它正在以每年15%的速度迅速增长。

在2015-2017年的短暂停滞之后,今年,投资者对食品科技的兴趣突然复苏,与此同时,整个行业的格局也正在趋于稳定并走向市场整合。

2

印度食品科技行业融资情况

数据背后还隐藏着另一个有趣的现象:中国的科技巨头正在印度的外卖行业暗暗较劲。

2018年上半年,印度的食品科技领域筹集的大部分投资可以追溯到三大中国巨头企业——科技巨头阿里巴巴和腾讯,以及刚刚上市的美团点评。

2月,在线食品配送平台Zomato从阿里巴巴的金融部——蚂蚁金融筹集了1.5亿美元。6月,美团点评在Swiggy的G轮融资中追加投资2.1亿美元。

9月,打车平台Ola从中国的帆船资本和中欧经济合作基金(CEECF)筹集了5000万美元,此前,Ola也从腾讯和滴滴处获得投资。而它则在去年12月收购了Foodpanda India食品配送平台。

近日还有媒体报道称,曾于2016年投资印度线上旅游网站MakeMyTrip的携程,计划向Zomato投资约1亿美元。

“食品科技领域在过去的8-10个月里持续获得大笔资金,并非只是一个企业,而是所有企业。”主要关注食品技术产业的RedSeer咨询公司的项目经理Rohan Agarwal对志象网(The Passage)说。

“食品科技领域目前的繁荣吸引了众多外国投资者,其中就包括中国巨头。”他补充说。

为什么是食品科技?

食品科技领域究竟有什么魅力,让中国投资者趋之若鹜?答案可能并不复杂,即该商业模式已经在中国得到了验证。

业内专家指出,印度在食品配送市场的消费者行为与中国类似。

2017年,中国的食品配送市场估值达到370亿美元,比2016年的250亿美元同比增长48%。在中国,阿里巴巴旗下的饿了么和腾讯支持的美团外卖两分天下,共享约85%的市场份额。这也与印度“双子星”的情况也非常相似。

美团点评9月的成功上市,也为印度的外卖平台提供了一个发展样本。

美团从团购起家,2013年开启外卖业务,后成功与大众点评合并,不断吸附更多线下品牌商家入驻,进化为中国最大的一站式本地化生活服务消费平台。

从上市多披露的文件来看,美团最强的依然是用户消费最高频、商家数量最大的大餐饮事业部,其收入占了六成左右;从“吃”进而拓展至住、游、购、娱、行等多个领域,成为了名副其实的“一站式平台”。

3

美团的业务布局及其竞争者

美团的业务模式,让其与打车领域的滴滴、酒旅的携程、外卖领域的饿了么都存在竞争,甚至在线下新零售领域,直接与阿里争夺消费场景。

美团的成功证明了这一商业模式的可行性,也使得中国投资者对印度食品技术产业的扩张信心十足。总部位于香港的智库Digital Hub Asia的研究助理Dev Lewis认为,中国企业对印度食品科技行业的投入,是因为他们在中国看到了增长。

在中国,在产生品牌价值和客户保持的高重复订购行为的驱动下,许多公司正尝试一站式解决跨地域配送。食品之外,杂货、药品、住宿、出租车预订和电影票务等服务都加入了业务格局。

4

Swiggy进入药品和杂货配送领域

Swiggy目前的发展路线就很类似,它计划在印度开始跨地域配送服务。

“印度契合中国市场的所有条件——一大群在城市工作的移动网络用户,几乎没什么时间,所以中国式的食物配送服务能完美契合这种情况。”Dev Lewis对志象网(The Passage)说。

Dev进一步补充,中国企业已经对用户行为、需求模式以及其他有关中国市场的信息有所了解,而这些商业经验同样适用于印度市场。

“依据他们在中国的经验,中国公司的投资会带来数据、经验和算法,将其应用到印度,没有人想要失去印度这块蛋糕。”Dev说。

印度离下一个美团还有多远?

然而,与中国相比,印度的食品配送市场仍有很长的路要走。

仅就订单量而言,二者的差别还十分悬殊。美团每天处理的订单量接近2200万单,而据Agarwal估计,Zomato和Swiggy每天的订单不到100万单。

从印度食品科技领域的发展轨迹来看,它也明显落后于中国。

上一次食品科技领域的融资热潮出现在2014年到2015年,当时,包括Zomato和Swiggy在内的外卖平台接连出现。

但资本的热情很快退去。2015年到2016年间,食品科技领域仅吸引了8000万美元的投资。在2015年到2017年间,食品科技领域经历了一段停滞期,十多家食品配送创业公司倒闭,包括TinyOwl、SpoonJoy、Eatlo、Eatonomist、Yumist、EatFresh、Dazo、Zupermeal等。

甚至Zomato也经历了波折,它在2015年2月开始食品配送业务,在2015年12月就裁员300人,约占其员工总数的15%,但最终它度过了危机,和Swiggy一道成为了幸存者。

食品科技行业融资开始复苏

2017年中开始,行业重组告一段落,外国投资者又开始对食品科技领域产生兴趣,食品科技领域开始出现复苏的迹象。

在重组和整合之后,印度的食品配送领域由5家公司主导——Zomato、Swiggy、Foodpanda India、Google Areo和UberEats。

据印度媒体LiveMint引用RedSeer的一份报告称,Swiggy以35-38%的市场份额位居第一,Zomato以25-30%的市场份额紧随其后,二者共享了70%-80%的市场份额。

这五家公司中,就有三家背后站着中国投资者,中国公司之间的战争已经在印度的食品科技领域打响。

“在这场数据争夺战之后,当印度市场成熟时,中国投资者都想成为持有大量股份的早期投资者。”Dev Lewis总结说。

          Michael Lombardi's take on the Colts      Cache   Translate Page      
Lombardi has a podcast called GM Street with the Ringer. He had some interesting things to say about the Colts that I thought you guys might want to read. Here's the conversation he had after the Patriots game: Host: What was your main takeaway from this game? ML: Well, I thought the Colts started the game without 8 starters on the field , and clearly missed them. By the time the game got goin' they missed two more guys. Losing Darius Leonard , to me -who's one of the best young rookies in the league- hurt them because this is a zone team. They play nothing but Tampa; they really don't wanna get into a man-to-man game very often. They did a little bit last night , but they don't want to do it, and without Leonard and that speed underneath, that really became a problem for em'. So... you know, for me, it was really a good win for the Patriots. I think defensively you could see they still have some warts , but you know, Luck threw the ball 59 times , which is never gunna be recipe to win a game. He turns the ball over twice, and I think that the Patriots did exactly what they had to do. Brady's two interceptions were the result of dropped passes. Host: Can you just talk about the Colts , and Luck? I mean, their record's not great obviously, but it does seem like this team has a little bit of ability and drive to bounce back. ML: Hey look, they're the best 1-4 team that I've seen. I mean, they were 47% on 3rd down last night , and they were the best 3rd down team in football goin' into the game. And, they didn't have T.Y Hilton in the game! I mean, if T.Y Hilton's on that field, they're a different offense and the Patriots have to play differently. I mean, they had some critical drops in the game... I think this Colts team is startin' to come around. I think Andrew Luck's starting to get more comfortable with his arm. I think he's willing to drive the ball. Last night I thought he drove it more than he had in previous weeks. And defensively they need their guys back and they need to be able use their speed. I think they're gunna be a tough out- they're never gunna go away. Of the 5 games , this was really the only one they didn't have a chance in the 4th quarter to win the game -- and yet, and you said, ..I mean, until he throws that interception, they gotta really good chance. They missed a FG , which they typically never do..... so I like the Colts teams. I like what Frank Reich's doing . I like their defensive coordinator, I think he's done a good job . They play a lotta zone- they're smart , they don't give away the game, they force you to beat em'. And the Patriots did last night. So, all's not lost. You're 1-4 , but I think the future's much brighter in Indianapolis. Host: Is there a chance that we're dealing with a , you know, 1996-97 San Antonio Spurs situation, where this team has their Andrew Luck, they have you know, the pieces there ... but, if they don't have a great season this year, they get another high draft pick; you know, something like they did with Quenton Nelson last draft ... and you add another blue-chip guy to this team and now we're looking at this next wave with a healthy Luck. Is that a possible bright side to this situation , even though they are 1-4 at this point? (kind of a poorly worded question/example , I know) ML: I think there's no doubt. I think that they're cleanin' up from the Ryan Grigson mess. And it's still gunna be a clean up. It's a clean up that's gunna require more than just 6-12 months clean up. You're gunna have to put the yellow suits on with the mask and go in there (I'm assuming he means a biohazard suit lol). I mean, it's taking some time because there's gunna be some cleanup after that disaster. And I mean, I think the team's starting to respond, you can see they don't quit, they keep playin' hard. You know, they accepted the challenge. They all knew that they were playing with one hand tied behind their back with 10 guys not on the field , but they kept competing. I think these are the kind of games that you build for the future. I mean, they come back next week against the Jets , and they'll give the Jets everything they can handle. You know, they're a better team than the Jets right now -- but they gotta be healthy. That's the most important thing. And I think Ballard and another draft will really do well for them.

          ALDS Review: Astros Annilhilation      Cache   Translate Page      

Another baseball season draws to a close in Cleveland, not with a bang but a whimper.

Just like last year, the Indians exit the postseason at the first stage, this time swept out of the American League Division Series by the reigning champion Houston Astros. It was upsetting to see the Tribe play just a single playoff game at home, and even more frustrating to watch them throw the game away (literally).

There will be a great deal of questions asked of this team after such a disappointing conclusion to the season. Was the Indians lackluster divisional race a cause for their uninspiring performance? The 103-win Astros were pushed all the way in their race for the AL West by Oakland, keeping them sharp as they entered October. The Indians on the other hand coasted to their divisional title, perhaps dulling their ability to rise to the playoff atmosphere that Houston thrived upon.

In the Indians' defense, they were up against a team stacked head-to-toe with quality, with no visible weaknesses in any department. The Astros pitching was particularly dominant, and entered the postseason ranked first in team ERA (3.11), starters ERA (3.16), bullpen ERA (3.03) and strikeouts (1,687) for the entire league. Their dominance showed through in each game, severely limiting the Tribe hitters.

It's no wonder the Indians batted a pitiful .144 (13-for-90) for 6 total runs in the entire series.

Two of those runs came directly from the bat of Francisco Lindor, as the star shortstop hit two solo homers. In fact, Lindor was the only player to perform well at the plate for Cleveland, batting .364 in 11 at-bats, scoring 3 runs, basically accounting for 50% of the offensive output. The 24 year-old face of the franchise never let his head drop.


On the other hand you have Jose Ramirez, Cleveland's most dangerous hitter during the regular season, reduced to a shell of his usual self against Houston. In 11 at-bats, Ramirez couldn't record a single hit and dating back to last season, Ramirez is 2-for-31 in postseason play.

He wasn't alone in his struggles. The Tribe's other big bats like Edwin Encarnacion (1-for-10), Josh Donaldson (1-for-11) and Yonder Alonso (0-for-6) also underperformed. Even the consistent Michael Brantley was limited to just 2 hits in 10 at-bats, in what could well be his final games in an Indians uniform.

The lineup will take the brunt of the criticism for this postseason letdown, as they rightly should. You don't need a degree to know that scoring runs will win you games and sadly the Tribe hitters just couldn't get it done against an admittedly superior Astros team.

However, the Indians' pitching staff must take their share of the responsibility as well, as they were far from perfect.

Something was off right from the start of the series, when Corey Kluber took a beating in Houston to open game one. The ace of the staff never looked like his normal self and gave up three home runs in his 4.2 innings of work. He continued to leave the ball up in the zone and the Astros hitters punished him accordingly.

Thankfully Carlos Carrasco and Mike Clevinger, the starters for games two and three, were very effective. Carrasco lasted 5.1 innings, giving up 6 hits for 2 earned runs and kept the Tribe in the game. Clevinger was superb in his start, showing just how far he's progressed in 2018. Sunshine pitched 5 innings with 9 strikeouts, allowing just 3 hits and 1 earned run.

The biggest problem, as was so often the case this season, was when Carrasco and Clevinger handed the game over to the bullpen.

Cody Allen and Brad Hand were the two individuals who really suffered and were taken apart by the vaunted Astros lineup. Allen made two appearances, pitching a third of an inning in game one and two thirds of an inning in game three, and was diabolical, giving up 4 hits for 6 earned runs, two of them homers (one in each game). Considering this series was likely Allen's last time in a Cleveland uniform, it's a very somber and disappointing way for him to bow out.

Hand, considered the bullpen saviour in the season's final months, was also hit hard. He pitched an inning in game two and two thirds of an inning in the game three nightmare. The left-hander was stung for 3 hits and 2 earned runs altogether, including the three-run bomb by Carlos Correa that sent Tribe fans heading for the exits in game three.


Perhaps the performance that hurt Tribe fans the most came from Trevor Bauer. For so long this year a Cy Young-worthy starter with untouchable stuff, Bauer was reduced to pieces over the course of three relief appearances. Bauer walked out of the bullpen in each game and logged 4 innings in total, but gave up 7 hits and 3 earned runs. He saved the worst until last.

In the seventh inning with a narrow 2-1 lead, Bauer made an errant pickoff attempt that allowed Houston's Tony Kemp to reach second, and he later scored on a Jose Altuve grounder to tie the game at 2-2. Alex Bregman proceeded to chop a pitch back to the mound, where Bauer attempted to start the inning-ending double play, but his throw to Lindor at second base was wild, pulling the shortstop away from the bag, resulting in Bauer's second error of the inning and no outs on the play. The bases were then loaded to keep a double play opportunity alive but a 95-mph fastball way above the zone was pounced on by Marwin Gonzalez for a double that plated two more runners. It put the Astros ahead 4-2, and the game beyond the Indians' reach. A 6-run eighth inning meltdown by the rest of the bullpen put the final nail in the Tribe's 2018 coffin.

Where do the Indians go now? One thing for certain is some significant roster turnover in the near future, as a number of key players become free agents this month. I will be paying close attention this winter to the club's activity but for the next few weeks, I'll enjoy the rest of the playoffs, sad in the thought of what might have been.

Thanks for reading this season.

David: There is no inherent nobiltiy in indigenous people, gender, race, or ethnicity. There are differences in culture and society, but human nature is the same everywhere. Tribes were not pacifists handing out flowers. Every tribe was different. They warred with each other over resources. Many kept slaves, especially sex slaves of female captives. Some tribes revered bravery in the face of pain. What they did to prisoners makes the worst Chainsaw Massacre movie look tame. Some kept scalps to prove their bravery. There were stories of cannibalism. Native Americans used technology and other assets they got from Europeans to wage war on each other. The horse came from the Conquistadors. Mounted tribes promptly overwhelmed those without the horse. Guns were used against each other once they got them from Europeans. The Apache rode their horses into the ground, ate them, and then just stole another one. The Nez Pearce were famous horsemen, by comparison. The Iriquois Nation terrorized surrounding tribes. Archeologists unearthed towers made up of hundreds of thousands of human bones, and they confirmed that Aztecs did indeed tear the beating hearts from the chest of their sacrifices, including many children. Wtihout the Conquistadors, the Aztecs would be stilll merrily terrorizing the entire region, slaughtering millions of people. Indigenous people were also not "First Nation." That was the Neanderthals, which were discovered to have existed in North America. They were wiped out in their contact with Cro Magnon. The Clovis Indians were Second Nation. They were displaced by immigrants from Asia, who are Third Nation indigenous people. Later colonizers were Fourth Nation. Those values will probably be reshuffled over and over again the more we learn about ancient migrations and displacement. The Fourth Nation people adopted the conquered Third Nation into their tribe, but many live separately in reservations. They are administered many socialis programs, are not allowed to own tribal land, and are treated like children by the government. Consequently, they live in abject poverty with terrible education. By contrast, the tribes who do not live under the Bureau of Indian Affairs, own land and have a high median income. That's without casino revenue. In addition, why does the government help the Sioux hold the Black Hills? They took it from the Cheyanne, who also took it from other tribes. The land changed hands multiple times that we know of. Why do the Sioux claim ownership? Native tribes did not believe in deeded land ownership that can be passed down in perpetuity. Tribes held land until and unless they lost it to a stronger tribe. The explanation for why the Sioux took the Black Hills from other tribes was that it was strong. The Fourth Nation is just a strong tribe that overpowered all others, and introduced them to the wheel. I do not condone any of the savegery that both sides did to each other. It was grievous. I also do not subscribe to the attitude that Native Americans were peace loving pacifists who cared for the land. They were fierce fighers, and if they needed to make a fire, they burned wood. Greenhouse gas producing wood burning. In fact, they would put land to the flame to create more open hunting ground. This was not a holier than thou war, but one of a fight for survival and resources. I believe that Reservations should be done away with, and the land divided up among members of the tribe to do with as each individual wishes. Just being allowed to own their land would be a huge step forward in improving thier circumstances. It is unacceptable that tribes STILL live in poverty in these failed Progressive plantations of Reservations. Immigrants come here with the equivalent of 50 cents in their pocketes, and live far better than the Res within a year. If Colombus had not arrived, then the Aztecs would have murdered millions more people. If there was no United States, there would have not been the key Ally that helped defeat Hitler. Without the US, all of Europe would be Nazis and the Jews might have been wiped out. Without the US, there would not be our trillions of dollars spent on global environmental, humanitarian, and military aid. We float the budget for the UN and various environmental initiatives. I also do not believe for one instant that if Spain had not colonized America, that the rest of the world would have ignored our enormous, resource rich continent and genteely starved to death in their overcrowded countries, where class was an insurmountable barrier. People didn't have the land to grow a head of cabbage for themselves. But people with superior mlitary might were going to leave open, unworked, fertile land to those who didn't have the wheel, or steel, and were still using bows and arrows? No way. No. Way. A superior tribe would have taken the land from the less advanced tribe, just as the Native Americans had been doing to each other for thousands of years. Perhaps even the Aztecs would have expanded, and we'd have our own mountains of bones.

INDIAN "The term Aboriginal has been in the English language since at least the 19th century, formed from the 16th century term, Aborigine, which means "original inhabitants". It derives from the Latin words 'ab' (from) and 'origine' (origin, beginning). The word was used in Australia to describe the original inhabitants of the land as early as 1789. Since colonisation it has been employed as the common name to refer to both Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people." - Common Ground ______________________________________________________________________________ Americans were created in 1789 and were native to Europe and, originally, Africa. Indians are native to Asia and, originally, Africa. Them Injuns is the "Before People." They did not properly immigrate under American law. They are illegal aliens with a visa right when they are off of their reservations. Keep yer eyes peeled, Pardner. Aboriginal is not American or European but 16th century Australian. "Indian" is the name given by Europeans in 1492. There is no reason to change that which has been fact for 526 years. Communistic social engineering is not an acceptable rationale in constitutional America. _____ "Application of the term "Indian" originated with Christopher Columbus, who, in his search for India, thought that he had arrived in the East Indies." - Wiki
          ¿Por qué tantos países quieren comprar el S-400 ruso pese a las amenazas de EEUU?      Cache   Translate Page      


Durante los ejercicios Vostok 2018, Rusia mostró el sistema S-400, una de las armas más avanzadas y comercializables del país en los últimos años. Debido a sus capacidades, varios países, incluyendo China, Arabia Saudí, Turquía, la India y Catar están dispuestos a comprarlo, observa Yarno Ritzen, autor del artículo para Al Jazeera.

Casi todos los gobiernos que anunciaron su intención de adquirir el sistema de defensa antiaérea S-400 —actualización masiva del S-300, enviado recientemente a Siria— fueron amenazados con algún tipo de represalia por parte de EEUU, la OTAN o sus adversarios, señala el periodista.

Según varios expertos entrevistados por el medio, esta reacción se debe no solo a las características avanzadas del S-400, sino también a un riesgo potencial para las alianzas.
Sistema de defensa antiaérea más avanzado

"El S-400 es uno de los sistemas de defensa antiaérea más avanzados que existen, a la altura de los mejores que puede ofrecer Occidente", comentó Siemon Wezeman, investigador principal del programa de transferencias de armas y gastos militares del Instituto Internacional de Investigación de la Paz de Estocolmo (SIPRI).

Sus radares y otros sensores, así como sus misiles, cubren un área extensa. El radar tiene un alcance de al menos 600 km y sus proyectiles tienen un alcance de hasta 400 km", dijo Wezeman.

"Es preciso y capaz de rastrear un gran número de objetivos potenciales, incluidos aquellos sigilosos", añadió.

Otras ventajas son su estructura modular y su gran movilidad, lo que significa que puede instalarse, disparar y retirarse en cuestión de minutos.

"Es muy resistente y adaptable y es un sistema móvil, algo que muchos países están buscando", aseguró Kevin Brand, analista militar, entrevistado por Al Jazeera.
Temores políticos y técnicos de la OTAN

El interés de Turquía en el sistema de misiles ruso asustó a sus aliados occidentales de la OTAN por razones técnicas y políticas, señala el autor del artículo.

"En el sentido tecnológico, el S-400 sería sin duda un paso adelante [para Turquía], pero no es de interés de la OTAN tener ese sistema de armas integrado dentro de su arquitectura", apuntó Brand.

Sin embargo, la compra podría potencialmente ser aún más dañina para la Alianza Atlántica.

"¿Qué tipo de contratos se firmarían con los técnicos rusos que se ocupan del S-400, por ejemplo?, ¿tendría acceso a los datos de la OTAN el personal de mantenimiento ruso?", se preguntó el experto.

Represalias diplomáticas y económicas de EEUU

Para la India, Arabia Saudí y Catar, que no forman parte de una alianza como la OTAN, la compra de un sistema como el S-400 provocaría menos problemas tecnológicos, pero correrían el riesgo de tener repercusiones diplomáticas y económicas por parte de Estados Unidos.
El Departamento de Estado de EEUU declaró que las compras chinas de los aviones SU-35 y los sistemas S-400 violan la Caatsa —Ley para Contrarrestar a los Adversarios de EEUU a través de Sanciones-, unas semanas después de haber anunciado que la India podría verse sometida a medidas punitivas si continúa comprando el sistema.

Sin embargo, la India decidió comprarel sistema y firmó un acuerdo de 5.000 millones de dólares.

Según Wezeman, es poco probable que EEUU cumpla sus amenazas de sanciones, especialmente en relación con la India o Arabia Saudí.

"En realidad, las sanciones son poco probables, puesto que la India y otros países son demasiado importantes como socios militares y políticos para Estados Unidos. Incluso las sanciones limitadas probablemente harían que esos países se enfadaran lo suficiente como para dañar los intereses de EEUU", explicó.

No obstante, aunque las sanciones económicas sean poco probables, la compra de las armas rusas podría tener consecuencias diplomáticas.
También hay una cuestión diplomática, porque el acuerdo de vender una tecnología sensible a otro país implica una mayor alineación en una serie de cuestiones políticas. De ahí que EEUU está buscando aislar a Rusia", comentó al medio Charles Forrester, analista principal de la industria de defensa en el grupo mediático Jane's by IHS Markit.

Para EEUU, estas compras constituyen más que una simple amenaza militar: se trata de contrarrestar la participación de Rusia en los conflictos mundiales e impedir que Rusia reciba dinero por sus equipos, señalaron los analistas.

"EEUU ha estado trabajando para encontrar formas de fortalecer sus respuestas diplomáticas en el ámbito mundial a los países que violan el orden basado en las reglas globales", señaló Forrester.
Pese a los riesgos

"La India no quiere comprarle a un solo proveedor y ser demasiado dependiente de un solo país. Por lo tanto, desde una perspectiva geopolítica, tiene sentido que adquiera algunos sistemas a Rusia y otros a Estados Unidos", opinó Brand.
Otro motivo es compartir tecnología militar, algo que Estados Unidos no quiere hacer, a diferencia de Rusia.

"Rusia está dispuesta a suministrar el S-400 probablemente a cualquiera y a compartir tecnología hasta cierto punto", explicó Wezeman, aunque agregó que no está claro hasta dónde llegaría este intercambio.

Y para Turquía, según el experto, el S-400 se ha convertido en una especie de proyecto ambicioso.

"El no ceder ante EEUU y la OTAN demuestra que Turquía es su propio jefe, capaz de enfrentarse a ambos", concluyó Wezeman.

          Pakistán prueba con éxito un misil con capacidad nuclear después de que India comprara S-400 rusos      Cache   Translate Page      
La prueba se realizó ante la creciente tensión entre Islamabad y Nueva Deli.



El sistema de misiles Ghauri, que puede disparar proyectiles nucleares y convencionales a una distancia de 1.300 km, fue probado este lunes por el Comando de Fuerzas Estratégicas del Ejército de Pakistán. La prueba fue elogiada por el presidente pakistaní, Arif Alvi, y el primer ministro Imran Khan.

"El lanzamiento consolida la capacidad nuclear de Pakistán, que apunta a la paz y la estabilidad a través de un régimen de disuasión creíble", reza el comunicado emitido por el Departamento de Relaciones Públicas.

La prueba se produce pocos días después de que la India rechazara una invitación de Pakistán para reunirse y discutir formas de garantizar la paz y la estabilidad en la región. Nueva Deli explicó su negativa por el asesinato de tres policías indios a manos de militantes pakistaníes a finales de septiembre. Además, la parte india alega que Islamabad distribuye sellos postales con la imagen del militante cachemir Burhan Wani, lo que a ojos de Nueva Deli supone una "glorificación del terrorismo".

La prueba pakistaní fue precedida por la firma de un acuerdo según el cual Rusia suministrará a la India sistemas antiaéreos S-400. El acuerdo fue rubricado por el presidente ruso, Vladímir Putin, y el primer ministro indio, Narendra Modi, cuando se reunieron el 5 de octubre en Nueva Deli.

          Westmoreland Coal - Owner Of 3 Montana Mines - Files For Bankruptcy      Cache   Translate Page      
Westmoreland Coal Company , the Colorado-based owner of three coal mines in Montana, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in federal court on Tuesday. Westmoreland owns the Rosebud Mine, which supplies Colstrip's power plants, the Absaloka Mine, on the Crow Indian Reservation, and a third, smaller mine near the North Dakota border. Company officials say the filing is part of a restructuring agreement with an unnamed group of lenders to deal with steep debt and declining world demand. In Montana, demand for coal from the Rosebud mine is expected to drop when two of the four units of the Colstrip power plant cease operations by 2022. The Absaloka mine has already seen demand drop. Company officials say operations won't be interrupted and there are no expected staff reductions. Court filings show the company has $770 million in assets and $1.4 billion in debt. Westmoreland is one of the oldest coal companies in the U.S. with coal mines operating in six states.

          "Swami nos está empujando hacia ese futuro donde habría Prema Sai y no habrá palabras".      Cache   Translate Page      
Sri Madhusudan Naidu en 'Tattva Sameeksha' (1 de octubre de 2018), Sathya Sai Grama, Muddenahalli.

('Tattva Sameeksha' es una sesión de charla de eminentes oradores para los residentes del Ashram de Sathya Sai Grama en Muddenahalli)

"Swami nos está empujando hacia ese futuro, donde habrá Prema Sai y no habrá palabras". '

Swami siguió hablando de cosas y luego habló de Prema Sai. Ahora que Prema Sai es el tema más candente, porque, donde quiera que vayamos, Swami está hablando de Prema Sai. Y creo que es por una razón, porque Él nos está orientando lentamente hacia lo que viene a continuación. Él es un profesor muy inteligente. Swami prepara a los estudiantes para lo que vendrá en la próxima clase. 

Por lo tanto, Él no siguió con lo que sucede ahora, pero dejó caer algunas pistas, nos dio algunas pistas y nos permitió entender que hay más cosas que se aproximan, a nuestra manera. 

Y, por lo tanto, habló sobre Prema Sai en Argentina y habló sobre cómo Prema Sai vendrá a Muddenahalli, cómo será preparado aquí porque vendrá como un niño pequeño, probablemente, no como un adolescente. 
Y luego Él tendrá que ser educado, tendrá que ser cuidado, y luego Él crecerá hasta cierta edad. 

Swami dijo que, en el decimonoveno año de su vida, Él se hará cargo de la misión. 
Y él viajará oficialmente a todas partes del mundo. Se quedará en estos Ashrams que se están estableciendo ahora. 
Él guiará a las personas espiritualmente. Y así serían los primeros 25 años de Su vida, principalmente en la India, pero también algunas partes en otros países.

Y los próximos 25 años de su vida, lo pasará en su mayoría en el extranjero. Él tendrá estos Ashrams, y en su mayor parte, pasará su tiempo en el extranjero y volverá sólo de vez en cuando para ciertas ocasiones, o festividades a la India. Pero el resto, la segunda mitad de su vida sería sobre todo en el extranjero, y la última parte de su vida, los últimos cuatro años, volvería, de nuevo en la India. 
Para, finalmente, descansar en la India(54 años).  Así es como swami dijo a sus devotos en Argentina, muy claramente, cómo va a suceder, lo que va a pasar.

Entonces también dijo algo muy interesante. Dijo que Prema Sai no va a hablar como Él todo el tiempo. 
" Yo hablo demasiado. Hablo demasiado. Él no va a hablar. Será un maestro silencioso. Él se sentará y tú tendrás que venir y en el silencio de tu corazón, tendrás que escuchar su voz, y tendrás que entender lo que está tratando de decirte.
 Y sólo al sentarse, allí les dará cien mensajes a cien personas, que vienen con cien temas diferentes, sin decir una palabra. Y así es como se va a comunicar con los demás. Ese es el futuro ", reveló.

Sucedió que en Dubai estábamos en la casa de un devoto. Y Swami estaba a punto de hablar, pero antes de eso permitió que otro Guruji, el Gurú de la familia, dijera algunas palabras que provenían de la parte norte de la India. Nos contó una historia sobre un Santo en particular cerca de Brindavan (ese era el lugar de Krishna, y este Santo no salía de su meditación. Solo salia cada luna azul, y cada vez que eso sucedía, los devotos se reunirían a su alrededor, entonces se sentaba en un lugar alto y hablaba solo durante tres minutos. 
En ese corto período de tiempo, él hablaba y también hacía un pequeño Nama Sankirtana, un Bhajan- Hare Rama Hare Krishna, y luego cerraría el Satsang. En tres minutos el Satsang había terminado. 

En el mundo de hoy quieren todo rápido, la edad de los T20 (un partido de Cricket de formato corto, compacto). Nadie quiere partidos de prueba ( partidos de Cricket que duran cinco días). 

Del mismo modo, Dios también está entrando en modo compacto. Dijo tres minutos.
 
A Swami le gustó mucho y dijo: "Esa es una idea fantástica. Habla durante tres minutos. No hables más que eso". 

Y dijo que así es como debería ser. Todos nos sorprendimos y estábamos bastante impactados al escuchar que Swami reduciría el habla. Pero estoy viendo que esto es más frecuente ahora que antes. Solo de vez en cuando, da largos discursos. 

Cuando yo era estudiante, el discurso duraba dos horas y media a veces. Y Él cubriría todos los temas posibles. Iría desde lo más puro del Advaita hasta lo más simple, sobre los idlis(alimento) en el albergue. Cubría todos los temas en un discurso de dos horas y media. 

Pero hoy, Él está continuamente acortandolos. Y estoy viendo esto, observando esta tendencia porque siempre ha sido mi interés, ver a Swami, cómo Él hace las cosas. Ahora puedo verlo desde cerca. Yo siempre lo observo. Así que según mi observación, Swami está reduciendo continuamente sus discursos, las entrevistas, las interacciones físicas y personales con las personas, y lentamente, nos empuja a todos, incluso sin nuestro conocimiento, a entrar en el reino del silencio, a conectarnos internamente, con Él, desde un nivel interno más profundo, para encontrar nuestras respuestas dentro de nosotros mismos. Y esto está sucediendo. 

Alguien puede decir: "Oh, Madhu se quedará sin trabajo muy pronto", bueno, yo también estaré feliz, porque ese es el verdadero trabajo, llevar a todos a esa etapa en la que todos se conectan con todos dentro. 
Este es el momento, ese es el lugar al que Swami nos está llevando a todos, pero en silencio y gradualmente sin hacer ningún ruido al respecto. Él está reduciendo estos discursos, está reduciendo las interacciones. Él no quiere conocer gente tan a menudo como solía hacerlo en los primeros años. 
Bueno, he tenido momentos difíciles en los primeros años. Seguir concediendo entrevistas una tras otra durante todo el día, pero hoy, cuando vengan y le digan a Él, tal o cual persona está solicitando una entrevista, piensen por un momento, y decidan si es realmente necesario cumplir con la entrevista personal. Y si Él siente que no necesita conocer a la persona, no se reunirá. Él simplemente negará la entrevista. Y estoy viendo esta tendencia suceder.

Hay algo muy profundo en ello. Él nos está empujando a ese futuro donde habrá Prema Sai y no habrá palabras. Imaginen que todos los niños, todos los devotos, estarán en silencio contemplando. Estará ese Maestro sentado justo frente a nosotros, y todos estaremos sentados alrededor de Él. Y no habrá palabras habladas. Simplemente estaremos conectados a un nivel muy profundo de corazón a corazón y entenderemos todo lo que Él necesita decirnos y necesitamos saber. 

Imaginen un Ashram, un Ashram como Muddenahalli, donde apenas haya palabras que se escuchen. ¡Todo lo que podrán escuchar será tal vez a los pájaros y los monos chillando! Pero, no habrá palabras pronunciadas por nadie, todo el mundo estará en silencio, solo caminando en silencio, meditando y contemplando todo el tiempo. Solo imaginen la vida del Ashram así. En este punto del tiempo es difícil de imaginar. Pero definitivamente ese es el futuro de todos los Ashrams de Swami, donde la gente se reunirá solo para disfrutar de la energía silenciosa del maestro.

Madhu

TRADUCCION NO OFICIAL

'Swami is pushing us to that future where there would be Prema Sai and there won't be any words.'

Swami kept on talking about things and then He talked about Prema Sai. Now that Prema Sai is the hottest topic, because, where ever we go, Swami is talking about Prema Sai. And I think it's for a reason, because He is slowly orienting all of us towards what's coming next. He is a very smart teacher. Swami prepares the students for what is going to come in the next class. So He doesn't go with what happens now but He also drops a few hints, gives us a few cues and allows us to understand there is more coming, our way. And therefore He spoke about Prema Sai in Argentina and He talked about how Prema Sai would come to Muddenahalli, how He would be groomed here because He would come as a small boy probably, not even a teenager. And then He has to be educated, has to be looked after and then He will grow to a certain age. Swami said, at the nineteenth year of His life He will take charge of the mission. And He will officially travel to all parts of the world. He will stay in these ashrams which are being established now. He will guide people spiritually. And that's how the first 25 years of His life would be, mostly in India but also some parts of it in other countries.

And the next 25 years of his life, He will spend mostly abroad. He will have these ashrams and He will mostly spend His time abroad and come back only once in a while for certain occasions, or festivities to India. But the rest, second half of His life would be mostly abroad and the last part of His life, the last four years, He would come back, again in India. And finally He will rest in India. That is how Swami told His devotees in Argentina, very clearly, how it's going to happen, what's going to happen.

Then He also told a very interesting thing. He said that Prema Sai is not going to speak like Him all the time. "I speak too much. I talk too much. He is not going to speak. He will be a silent master. He will sit and you have to come and in the silence of your Heart, you have to hear His voice, you have to understand what He is trying to tell you. And just by sitting there He would convey a hundred messages to a hundred people who come with a hundred different things without speaking a word. And that's how He is going to be communicating with others. That is the future", He revealed.

It so happened that in Dubai we were in the house of a devotee. And Swami was about to speak but before that He allowed another Guruji, their family Guru, to speak a few words who hailed from the northern part of India. He told us a story about one particular saint near Brindavan (that is Krishna's place who would not come out at all from his meditation. Only once in a blue moon he will come out, and whenever that happened, devotees would gather around him as he would sit on a high place and speak only for three minutes. In that short period of time, he would speak and also do a small Nama Sankirtana, one Bhajan- Hare Rama Hare Krishna, and then he would close the Satsang. In three minutes the Satsang is over. Today world wants everything fast and quick, the age of T20's (a short format Cricket match). Nobody wants Test matches (Cricket match which goes on for five days). Likewise, God also is going into compact mode. He said three minutes. Swami liked it so much and said, "That's a fantastic idea. Speak for three minutes. Don't speak more than that'." And He said that's how it should be. We all were surprised. We all were rather shocked to hear that Swami would reduce speaking. But I'm seeing this more often now than before. Only once in a while, He gives long discourses. When I was a student the discourse would go on for two and a half hours at times. And He would cover all possible topics. He would go from the purest of Advaita to the simplest of the idli in the hostel. He would cover all topics in one discourse of two and a half hours. But today, He is continuously cutting it short. And I'm watching this, observing this trend because always it has been my interest to watch Swami, how He does things. Now I can watch Him from close quarters. I always watch. So it's an observation that I've made that Swami is continuously cutting down talks, interviews, physical, personal interactions with people and slowly He is pushing every one of us, even without our knowledge, to get into the realm of silence, to connect to Him at a deeper inner level and to find our answers within ourselves. And this is happening. Somebody may say, "Oh, Madhu will be out of job very soon", well, I'll be happy too because, that is the real job, to lead everyone to that stage where everyone connects to everyone within. That is the time, that is the place that Swami is taking all of us but very silently and gradually without making any noise about it. He is cutting down on these talks, He is cutting on interactions. He doesn't want to meet people as often as He used to in the initial years. Well, I have had a difficult time in the initial years. He would keep on granting interviews one after the other for the whole day but today when I go and tell Him- such and such a person is asking for an interview, He thinks for a moment and He decides whether it is really necessary to meet the person. And if He feels even a little that He does not need to to meet the person, He wouldn't meet. He will simply deny the interview. And I'm seeing this trend happening.

There is something very deep in it. He is pushing us to that future where there would be Prema Sai and there won't be any words. Imagine all the children, all the devotees, will be in silent contemplation then. There will be that Master sitting right in front of us and we all will be sitting around Him. And there will be no words spoken. We would just be connected at a very deep heart to heart level and we would understand everything that He needs to tell us and we need to know. Imagine an ashram, an ashram like Muddenahalli. There are hardly any words that you would hear. All that you could hear is perhaps the birds chirping and monkeys screeching! But, no other words spoken by anybody, everybody is silent, just walking in silence, meditating, and contemplation all the time. Just imagine the ashram life like that. At this point of time it is difficult to imagine. But definitely that is the future of all the ashrams of Swami where people will gather just to bask in the silent energy of the master.

Honda Manufacturing of Indiana, LLC (HMIN) today marked its 10th anniversary of automobile production at its plant in Greensburg, Indiana during a celebration with state and local government officials joining the celebration with Honda associates.

Honda began production in Indiana on October 9, 2008, producing the 4-cylinder Honda Civic Sedan with 1,000 associates on one shift. Today, HMIN operates two shifts with more than 2,500 associates producing the Honda Civic Sedan and CR-V – two of the industry's best-selling vehicles – as well as the all-new 2019 Honda Insight, a hybrid sedan. Cumulative production at HMIN is more than 1.8 million vehicles.

"This milestone is the result of the commitment our Honda associates in Indiana have made every day over the past decade to build products of the highest quality for our customers," said Isao Matsuzaki, president at HMIN. "Indiana is our home and with the strong support of our local communities, the state and beyond, we are excited about our future here in Greensburg."

Honda announced plans to build an auto plant in Greensburg in June 2006, breaking ground for the new plant in March 2007.  HMIN added a second shift of production in October 2011, doubling its production capacity to 200,000 vehicles per year. Today, HMIN has the capacity to produce 250,000 vehicles annually.

"Since launching production a decade ago today, Honda has had a lasting positive impact on the city of Greensburg, the southeast region and the entire state, helping propel our workforce and strengthen Indiana's reputation as a manufacturing powerhouse," said Indiana Secretary of Commerce Jim Schellinger. "With more than 290 Japanese business facilities in Indiana, we are proud of the friendships we have established with companies like Honda and look forward to even more milestones ahead. Congratulations on 10 years of excellence and thank you for your commitment to our state."         

In its first decade of operation, HMIN has achieved a number of milestones and accomplishments, including:

  • HMIN was Honda's fourth U.S. auto plant, and its seventh in North America
  • HMIN has built six different models in its history, including the Honda Civic, CR-V and Insight, as well as the Civic Natural Gas, Acura ILX and ILX Hybrid
  • Production of Civics for export markets began in September 2009  
  • HMIN earned the Platinum Plant award in the 2011 J. D. Power and Associates Initial Quality Study (IQS).
  • In 2017, HMIN began production of the Honda CR-V, the first SUV built at the plant and, earlier this year, production began of the all-new 2019 Honda Insight.

In 2017, HMIN purchased more than $2.2 billion in parts from 248 suppliers in the U.S.  

Honda in Indiana
Honda Manufacturing of Indiana, LLC (HMIN) began operations in October 2008, and is now one of five Honda auto plants in the U.S. HMIN manufactures the Civic and CR-V for the U.S. and for export to markets outside of North America. With employment of more than 2,400 associates and capital investment exceeding $ 1 billion, HMIN has an annual capacity of 250,000 vehicles. In 2017, Honda spent more than $2.1 billion with 64 OEM suppliers in Indiana to support its regional operations.  Learn more at https://indiana.honda.com/

          IMF Slashes Global Growth Forecast As Trade War Intensifies       Cache   Translate Page      

The International Monetary Fund slashed the global growth forecast for this year and next on Tuesday, citing an increase in the likelihood of further negative shocks, such as a full-blown trade war.

In its latest World Economic Outlook, released in Bali, Indonesia, the Washington-based lender forecast 3.7 percent growth for the world economy for this year and next. That is less than the 3.9 percent predicted in the April report and in a July update.

"Downside risks to global growth have risen in the past six months and the potential for upside surprises has receded," the global lender said in the report. "Escalating trade tensions and the potential shift away from a multilateral, rules-based trading system are key threats to the global outlook," the report noted.

The IMF cautioned that an intensification of trade tensions, and the associated rise in policy uncertainty, could dent business and financial market sentiment, trigger financial market volatility, and slow investment and trade. Further, the lender said higher trade barriers would disrupt global supply chains and slow the spread of new technologies. Consequently, global productivity and welfare would be lowered. And poor households would be hurt disproportionately as more import restrictions would also make tradable consumer goods less affordable.

"There are clouds on the horizon," IMF Chief Economist Maurice Obstfeld said during a press conference.

"Growth has proven to be less balanced than we had hoped."

Obstfeld noted that growth is being supported in several key economies by policies that seem unsustainable over the longer term.

"These concerns raise the urgency for policymakers to act," the economist added.

The US growth forecast for this year was retained at 2.4 percent, while the projection for next year was trimmed to 2.1 percent from 2.2 percent seen in July, citing the recently enacted trade tariffs. Growth projections for China for this year was left unchanged at 6.6 percent for this year, but the forecast for next year was cut to 6.2 percent from 6.4 percent. Eurozone's growth outlook for this year was cut to 2 percent from 2.2 percent, while the projection for next year was kept at 1.9 percent. The UK growth forecasts for this year and next were unchanged at 1.4 percent and 1.5 percent, respectively. Obstfeld expressed hope that a deal that includes tariff-free trade between the EU and the UK would be reached. India's growth projection for this year was kept at 7.3 percent, while the outlook for next year was trimmed to 7.4 percent from 7.5 percent.

          Indian Rupee Drops To Historic Low Against U.S. Dollar       Cache   Translate Page      

The Indian rupee drifted lower against the U.S. dollar in the evening session on Tuesday, touching an all-time low, as emerging markets fell after the downgrade of global growth forecast by the International Monetary Fund, citing trade disruptions.

The Washington-based lender slashed the global growth forecast to 3.7 percent for this year and next, from the 3.9 percent predicted in April.

Further undermining the currency was a surge in oil prices, which raised concerns over widening current account deficit in India.

Persistent dollar strength also weighed on the currency, as U.S. Treasury yields remained higher on hopes of further rate hikes in the U.S.

Indian markets also declined, with the benchmark BSE Sensex falling 198.84 points or 0.58 percent to 34,275.54, while the broader Nifty index was down 53.35 points or 0.52 percent at 10,294.70.

The rupee breached the key 74 mark, falling 2.9 percent to a record low of 74.53 against the U.S. dollar. The rupee had ended Monday's trading at 72.45 against the greenback.

So far this year, the currency has fallen around 13.7 percent against the U.S. dollar.

          Di Masa Depan, Anda Mungkin akan Diwawancara oleh Robot      Cache   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Jakarta - Ada banyak perdebatan mengenai pengaruh robot dan kecerdasan buatan terhadap pekerjaan yang ada saat ini. Pada 10 tahun ke depan, diperkirakan ada 1 juta pekerjaan di Amerika Serikat (AS) yang mungkin akan tergantikan oleh teknologi automasi.

Namun, beberapa riset juga menyatakan bahwa kemajuan teknologi akan lebih banyak menciptakan pekerjaan-pekerjaan baru dibanding memusnahkan yang ada. Disrupsi akibat kemajuan teknologi automasi ini ternyata juga mempengaruhi proses perekrutan pekerja baru.

Banyak perusahaan yang mulai menggunakan teknologi robotik untuk mempercepat proses perekrutan, mempermudah pekerjaan hiring manager, serta mengurangi bias yang bisa merugikan pelamar.

Bahkan, hampir seluruh perusahaan yang masuk dalam Fortune 500 menggunakan semacam automasi untuk meningkatkan proses perekrutan mereka. Facebook dan Apple misalnya, bekerjasama dengan platform Triplebyte yang menggunakan program kecerdasan buatan untuk melakukan wawancara online dengan software engineer. Teknologi ini kemudian mencocokkan pelamar dengan pekerjaan yang paling relevan dengan keahlian mereka.

CEO dan Co-Founder Triplebyte Harj Taggar mengklaim bahwa platform yang didirikannya membuka peluang bagi kandidat yang lebih beragam. “Rekrutmen yang dilakukan oleh perekrut kurang efektif karena perekrut cenderung mencari tipe-tipe orang yang serupa,” ujarnya, dilansir dari CNBC Make It.

Tingkat penerimaan Triplebyte pun merefleksikan yang dikatakan pendirinya. 40 persen kandidat yang menggunakan Triplebyte berhasil mendapat pekerjaan, 2 kali lebih besar dibanding rata-rata penerimaan industri yang hanya 20 persen.

Juga Menguntungkan Pelamar

Triplebyte bukan satu-satunya dalam hal ini. Sejumlah start-up teknologi telah menggunakan algoritma untuk membantu perekrut meningkatkan proses rekrutmen, termasuk melalui wawancara terautomasi.

“Ketika digunakan dengan benar, perekrutan pekerja berbasis AI bisa mengurangi bias, meningkatkan pengalaman kandidat, mengurangi waktu perekrutan, dan mengurangi turnover di masa depan,” tutur ahli ketenagakerjaan di situs TopResume Amanda Augustine.

Teknologi ini juga tidak hanya menguntungkan pihak perekrut saja tetapi juga pelamar kerja. Riset perusahaan rekrutmen global Randstad pada 2017 menunjukkan 91 persen pelamar kerja di AS percaya bahwa teknologi membuat proses melamar kerja lebih efisien. Selain itu, responden juga merasa lebih dihargai dan dilibatkan dalam proses rekrutmen. 

Namun, industri perekrutan harus berhati-hati dalam menyeimbangkan penggunaan teknologi untuk membuka peluang bagi calon pekerja dan pada saat bersamaan tidak menutup pekerjaan yang lain. (Felicia Margaretha)

 


          10-10-1780: Badai Paling Mematikan di Kepulauan Karibia Tewaskan 20 Ribu Jiwa      Cache   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Hindia Barat - Pulau-pulau di Karibia atau Hindia Barat porak poranda akibat badai besar hari ini, 10 Oktober 238 tahun silam. Menewaskan lebih dari 20.000 orang.

Tepat pada 10 Oktober 1780, seperti dikutip dari History.com, bencana dahsyat tersebut dikenal sebagai Great Hurricane tahun 1780, badai paling mematikan yang pernah tercatat dalam sejarah masa tersebut.

Pada saat Great Hurricane melanda, Revolusi Amerika mereda dan memicu pasukan angkatan laut Inggris serta Prancis berebut mengendalikan Hindia Barat. Padahal wilayah itu merupakan daerah berbahaya di dunia untuk dilintasi kapal -- diperkirakan sekitar satu dari 20 kapal yang dikirim ke Hindia Barat hilang di laut selama era tersebut.

Laksamana Inggris George Radney memiliki armada 12 kapal perang yang berpatroli di pulau-pulau Hindia Barat ketika badai besar itu mendekat.

Kapal-kapal itu tidak mampu menahan terjangan badai, sehingga delapan di antaranya tenggelam di Pelabuhan St. Lucia. Ratusan pelaut tewas dalam insiden tersebut.

"Bangunan-bangunan terkuat dan seluruh bagian rumah yang sebagian besar terbuat dari batu dan memiliki ketahanan bangunan yang luar biasa, rusak akibat amukan angin besar itu, bagian fondasinya rusak; semua benteng hancur, dan banyak meriam berat yang terbawa sejauh seratus kaki dari benteng," papar Radney.

"Jika saya tak menyaksikannya sendiri, mungkin tak ada yang bisa membuatku percaya dengan kekuatan Great Hurricane. Lebih dari 6.000 orang tewas, dan semua penghuni bangunan jadi korban."

"Hanya dua rumah di seluruh St. Lucia yang masih berdiri. Bahkan ada beberapa laporan yang menyebut bahwa kulit kayu sampai terkelupas dari pohon di beberapa lokasi. Umumnya, ini hanya terjadi jika kecepatan angin lebih dari 200 mil per jam," jelas Radney.

Sementara itu, Prancis juga tak bernasib baik seperti Inggris. Mereka kehilangan sekitar 40 kapal dan 4.000 tentara.

Korban terbanyak akibat terjangan Great Hurricane berada di Martinique dan Barbados.

Martinique tercatat memiliki lebih dari 9.000 orang tewas, sedangkan 4.000 jiwa meninggal di Barbados. Lebih dari 1.000 orang juga dilaporkan jadi korban di Jamaika.

Banyaknya jumlah korban jiwa membuat Great Hurricane dijuluki badai paling mematikan dalam sejarah pada masa itu.

Meskipun ada banyak badai mematikan beberapa tahun sejak 1780, hanya Badai Mitch pada tahun 1998 yang menewaskan sekitar 18.000 orang. Jumlah korbannya mendekati Great Hurricane.

Pada tanggal yang sama tahun 1986, sebuah gempa bumi mengguncang San Salvador, El Salvador. Musibah itu mengakibatkan sekitar 1.500 orang tewas.

Lalu pada 10 Oktober 2007 tercatat sejarah sebagai momen saat orang pertama Malaysia di angkasa luar. Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor meluncur dengan pesawat Rusia, Soyuz TMA-11.

When 1,076 people are complaining simultaneously during a technical issue, that usually means it’s affecting dozens of thousands, if not more. (Not everyone posts a notice on social media during an online snafu.) The timing of the outage was not good, although one could argue that no outage is well-timed.

Good for you that the outsourcing is to a domestic company. I was just chatting with a long time acquaintance whose employer (he is not affected) will be outsourcing some IT functions to India. Some IT folks there will lose their jobs.

Did OP mention that they outsourced to a domestic company? Even then, some people lost jobs and some like OP will have their salary cut in half.

Outsourcing to any company will have job losses at the end client.

Yes - many folks "lose" when jobs are outsourced. That is the whole idea.

But other folks "win" when jobs are outsourced, of course. That is the nature of economics.


Sure is!!

I did open a position in VEGBX (Vanguard Emerging Market Bond Admiral Shares), Vanguard's active EM bond fund, when it went live last December.



Despite the fact that emerging market equities have tanked over that period, VEGBX has not. It is actually my best-performing bond fund over that period. (That is not saying much.)

VWOB and VEGBX certainly approach Emerging Markets in different ways, and I think cap-weighted indexing may be problematic when it comes to EM bonds. VWOB is of course a "Government" index, but there are govt.-owned corporations issuing bonds which are also included in it. I suppose VWOB would fall under "USD sovereign" in Nisi's graphic above, contrary to VEGBX. Anyhow, here's a look at their holdings as posted in their respective Vanguard profile pages.

          Nikki Haley to leave role as UN ambassador      Cache   Translate Page      

Washington D.C., Oct 9, 2018 / 11:00 am (CNA).- Nikki Haley will leave her post as the United States’ ambassador to the United Nations at the end of the year, it was announced Tuesday. Haley has been a vocal champion of religious freedom during her time at the UN.

Speaking during a joint announcement from the Oval Office Oct. 9, President Donald Trump said that Haley first told him six months ago that she would look to “take a break” after two years on the job. The president said that Ambassador Haley had done an “incredible job” during her time in post and was “very special.”

“She’s a fantastic person, very importantly, but she also is somebody that gets it,” said  Trump.

During her time at the United Nations, Haley spoke frequently in defense of persecuted Christian communities in the Middle East, and delivered the closing keynote at July’s Ministerial to Advance Religious Freedom.

She also had a hand in the implementation of major policies, including the relocation of the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, fulfilling campaign promise made by successive presidential candidates.

“As Americans, we have been given a great set of tools with which to build a more perfect union. The protection of our religious freedom – our right to worship, and believe, and even instruct our children – in the manner in which we choose and to live our faith is first among these tools,” said Haley in July.

“We will continue to forcefully advocate for religious tolerance in the international arena. Not just because so many people are being denied this right, but because defending religious freedom makes for a safer and more peaceful world for all of us.”

During the announcement of her departure, Haley dismissed speculation that she would be seeking to challenge Trump for the 2020 Republican nomination. “No, I am not running for 2020,” she said while repeating her support for Trump’s reelection.

As former governor of South Carolina and a prominent member of the Trump administration’s foreign policy team, Haley has been widely tipped as a potential future presidential candidate.

She said it was an “honor of a lifetime” to serve in the United Nations, and that there was “no personal reason” for her choosing to step down at this time. Instead, she said that it was important for politicians to know when to step back from a particular role.

Trump expressed remorse at Haley’s departure, saying “We’re all happy for you in one way, but we hate to lose (you).” He also kept the door open for her return to the administration, “at some point but in a different capacity.”

If she were to do so, Trump said, she “can have (her) pick” of positions.

Prior to being appointed ambassador, Haley was the first female governor to be elected in South Carolina, and first Indian-American female governor in the country.

President Trump said he would announce Haley’s replacement within a few weeks.

          Climate politics heating up after the UN releases bombshell report on global warming      Cache   Translate Page      

OTTAWA—The politics of climate change just got hotter.

On Sunday night, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) dropped a bombshell report.

If humanity is to avoid the catastrophic extremes of global warming — widespread extinctions and species loss; an Arctic without sea ice; the disappearance of coral reefs; mass displacement from rising oceans and extreme weather — then governments around the world need to ramp up their efforts to eliminate greenhouse gas emissions, the report concludes.

Citing evidence from more than 6,000 scientific references, the report’s 91 authors outline the path to limiting global warming by 1.5 degrees C above pre-industrial temperatures by 2100 — the target set under the 2015 Paris Agreement. Global greenhouse gases will need to fall by about 45 per cent below 2010 levels within the next 12 years, and then reach “net zero” by 2050, the report says.

This would require “rapid, far-reaching and unprecedented changes in all aspects of society,” such as transportation, energy use and more, as well as the advent of as yet-unproven means of sucking GHGs out of the atmosphere, the IPCC says.

It’s an astonishing prescription, to be sure — but, here in Canada, many expect the IPCC’s alarm to intensify what is already one of the most divisive political issues of our time: climate change and what to do about it.

Ontario’s environmental commissioner slams Ford government over ‘gutted’ climate change policies

Editorial | Now there’s even more evidence to show politicians are wrong to oppose climate change plans

“An issue like climate change, as it is now cast in almost apocalyptic possibilities — that can be very emotionally engaging,” said Frank Graves, president of EKOS Research in Ottawa.

“The latest reports on climate change, and just how imminent the risk is, are only going to reinforce what we see as a rising concern with this.”

The IPCC report comes as the Trudeau government grapples with provincial blowback on its plan to curb GHGs by imposing an emissions tax in provinces and territories that don’t have their own, equally strong carbon-pricing schemes in place. Last week, Manitoba Premier Brian Pallister announced he would pull his support for the climate change plan because Ottawa wouldn’t agree to let the province set a $25-per-tonne emission tax without raising it to $50 by 2022, as prescribed by the Trudeau government.

Alberta’s NDP government also said it won’t raise its existing carbon tax on Trudeau’s schedule, after a federal court quashed approval for construction of the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion in August. And Ontario joined Saskatchewan’s court challenge of the constitutionality of Ottawa’s carbon price plan, after Premier Doug Ford announced he would scrap the cap-and-trade program set up under the previous Liberal government.

Meanwhile, on the federal level, Andrew Scheer’s Conservative Party rails against the government’s carbon price virtually every day, accusing the Liberals of masking a tax grab in the dishonest garb of environmentalism. Scheer says he will unveil his own climate plan before the next general election, though he’s clear that it won’t include a price on emissions.

“I’ve always believed that meaningful action has been required. And that’s one of the things that’s frustrated me about the Liberal plan of just slapping a carbon tax on and hoping it works,” Scheer said in an interview with the Star on Tuesday from India, where he met with the country’s prime minister to discuss selling more Canadian oil and gas to the subcontinent.

“If anything, their singular focus on one particular proposal has shown that they don’t take it seriously,” Scheer said.

Catherine McKenna, Canada’s environment minister, was not available for an interview Tuesday. But in an emailed statement to the Star, she underscored the urgency to act that the report implies, while boasting about the Liberal government’s efforts to reduce emissions and create jobs.

She also fired right back at Conservatives, whom she frequently accuses of having “no plan” to address global warming.

“Climate action should not be a partisan issue,” she said. “It’s time for Conservative politicians to stop playing games with our kids’ future.”

But the report also inspired criticism of the Liberals from the left, where politicians and climate activists argue the Trudeau government needs to do more to confront what may be a defining challenge of the 21st century. NDP MP Niki Ashton attacked the Liberals for maintaining GHG reduction targets set under Conservative prime minister Stephen Harper, and questioned the government’s decision to purchase the Trans Mountain pipeline for $4.5 billion this summer.

“Our collective future depends on us doing the right thing, right now,” Ashton wrote on Twitter.

Dale Marshall, national program director for the activist organization Environmental Defence, said the IPCC report underscores how Canada’s emissions target of a 30 per cent below 2005 levels by 2030 — which Canada is on track to miss, according to government projections — is already inadequate. The federal carbon tax would also need to be ramped up if Canada is to push harder on stricter emissions reductions called for in the report, Marshall said.

“We’ve been sounding the alarm forever and a lot of people keep pushing the snooze button,” Marshall said.

“If there’s anything that’s going to move the needle, I think this report does it.”

But while Graves said his polling with EKOS suggests a majority of Canadians already rank climate change and the environment amongst their top concerns, he said there is still a solid base of voters receptive to the Conservative attack on the carbon tax.

“The fact that we’re still in that situation in Canada is really discouraging and sad, because if this report makes anything clear, it’s that getting to the limit of 1.5 (degrees’ global warming) is going to be challenging, but it is possible,” said Catherine Abreu, executive director of Climate Action Network Canada.

“The one thing standing in our way is political will.”

          Jean Chrétien calls Donald Trump ‘fanatical’      Cache   Translate Page      

OTTAWA—The United States is led by a “fanatical” and “unspeakable” president whose election marks the “true end of the American Empire,” former prime minister Jean Chrétien says.

Chrétien, who served as prime minister between 1993 and 2003, has no kind words for U.S. President Donald Trump, expressing amazement that a world leader could so willingly lie and distort facts.

“Can you believe it when he talks? That’s the fundamental question. For me, I never suspected that Clinton or Bush were lying to me,” Chrétien said of former presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush.

“We might not talk about something, refuse to talk about something. But lying? I never expected any of them not to talk truthfully with me,” Chrétien said in an interview to mark the release of his latest book, “My Stories, My Times,” later this month.

“For me, in the House of Commons to be accused of lying, it would have been a terrible offence. For him, it’s so what,” Chrétien said.

Chrétien has written two previous books on his four decades in political life. He describes this most recent offering as a series of short vignettes and anecdotes.

“When I was fed up listening to the nonsense ... of the President of the United States, I decided to gain my sanity in going to my table with my pen in my study,” he said.

The book relates meetings with French President Jacques Chirac, the influence of mentor Mitchell Sharp, his dealings with Pierre Trudeau and his time as Minister of Indian Affairs, as the post was once known.

But the book is a burnishing of his legacy too, as he describes his role in everything from the naming of Air Canada to the creation of national parks and constitutional talks.

In the latest book, Chrétien writes that Americans made a “monumental error” in voting for Trump over Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election.

“I fear that Hillary’s defeat, and the arrival of the fanatical Trump, mark the true end of the American Empire,” Chrétien wrote.

He praised Clinton as “very intelligent, very knowledgeable, always asking pertinent questions.”

Asked whether Clinton would have made a good president, he replied, “I think so.

“I would have voted for her because I thought she would have been better than the one they have now,” he told the Star.

In his book, Chrétien highlights his warm relationship with the Clintons, writing about a day he spent with the couple and their family in Quebec’s Eastern Township, a visit that had locals buzzing at the time.

He laments that it’s a “bad time for democracy” but so far does not see a rise of a right wing here in Canada that has seen elsewhere.

“You never have to take everything for granted. I don’t feel that you have a strong movement that way but you never know,” Chrétien said. “Compared to anybody else, we’re in a very good situation.”

Chrétien insists he was never worried about the negotiations for a revised North American Free Trade Agreement, saying that the deeply integrated trade ties between Canada and the United States made it virtually impossible for Trump to make good on his vow to rip up the pact.

“He didn’t do it. He talked a lot ... at the end he could not undo the omelette. The Auto Pact exists since 1965, long before NAFTA and it was working well. And he could not undo that,” Chrétien said.

He said the new deal, known as United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, is the “same deal as before with two or three little changes.”

He said the “little bit” of concessions on dairy to allow U.S. producers more access to the Canadian market were in line with previous trade deals with the European Union and the Pacific trade agreement.

Chrétien writes in the book about some of the backroom discussions around the patriation of the constitution and his own push to include the notwithstanding clause in order to get provincial backing for the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

Chrétien says he has no regrets about the inclusion of the clause, despite recent threats by Ontario and Quebec to use the controversial measure. But Chrétien says there’s good reason it’s been so rarely used.

“That means you have to say ‘notwithstanding the Charter of Rights, I’m doing this.’ So you’re saying ‘I’m not respecting the Charter of Rights. I’m discriminating.’ So you need good reason to discriminate,” Chrétien said.

Premier Doug Ford’s government in Ontario moved to use the notwithstanding clause to push ahead its legislation to shrink the size of Toronto’s city council but stood down when a court ruling backed the provincial position.

Quebec’s incoming Coalition Avenir Québec government — which won the province’s election last week — is threatening to use it to make good on its vow to ban some public servants from wearing religious symbols.

“When Ford tried to do it, there was quite a lot of storm. He could have done it but he would have to pay a political price. I’m sure the people around him are very relieved they didn’t have to use it,” Chrétien said.

Chrétien, now 84 and 15 years out of politics, says he doesn’t watch much of the political debates today, just “enough to remain informed. Not enough to be preoccupied.”

He demurs when asked for his observations. “I’m not a Monday morning quarterback.” He says he talks “once in a while” with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

“But we don’t have a regular thing and I don’t think it is advisable,” he said, noting the advice Pierre Trudeau gave him when he took over the reins of the Liberal Party, and later became prime minister.

“He said ‘Jean, you will do it differently than I would do it. Don’t feel obliged to talk to me’,” Chrétien said. “He did not want to interfere.”

          Saffolalife urges to pay attention to your belly fat      Cache   Translate Page      

MUMBAI: Saffolalife, a not-for-profit initiative by Marico launched a new campaign on World Heart Day. This year, the campaign ‘Dil ki haalat, pet se pakad’ aims to build awareness and educate people on the impact of belly fat on heart health, thereby inspiring people to begin their journey towards a healthier heart and lifestyle.

The campaign kicked off with a digital film conceptualised by McCann Mumbai. The film shows light-hearted moments of family and friends holding a dear one’s belly fat in jest, but in reality it is no laughing matter since belly fat puts your heart at risk. Through the film and campaign, Saffolalife aims to build awareness of a lesser known fact, that the presence of belly fat increases heart risk. The video was launched across social media platforms - YouTube, Facebook, Instagram and OTT platforms like VOOT and HotStar complemented with print releases and on-ground activities to amplify the message ‘pet pakad mein aaye, toh karo dil ka khayal shuru.’

Consumers can also visit the Saffolalife microsite (www.saffolalife.com) and use the Heart Risk Calculator to get a deeper understanding of the extent of their heart risk.

On World Heart Day, Saffolalife also released a research study on the ‘Impact of belly fat on heart health’ which highlighted some astonishing facts such as 67 per cent Indians with belly fat are at heart risk, 83 per cent Indians who are at heart risk due to belly fat do not consider belly fat to be a key reason for heart risk, 6 out of 10 Indians are at heart risk due to belly fat despite having normal weight and 63 per cent Indians under 35 years are at heart risk due to belly fat.

Saffolalife has also partnered with a team of cardiologists and nutritionists who provided various insights on this issue and recommend ways to improve one’s heart health.

Marico chief marketing officer Anuradha Aggarwal says, "We endeavour to build a Heart Healthy India by encouraging people to take charge of their heart health through small yet impactful measures. For over a decade, the Saffolalife initiative has been building awareness on heart health and inspiring people to take care of their heart. This year’s campaign drives an important message on how the presence of belly fat can impact one’s heart health. And, that people should start taking care of their heart if they can see fat around their belly."

Talking about the campaign, McCann Mumbai EVP GM and national head planning Suraja Kishore adds, “Every World Heart Day, Saffolalife has been raising consciousness of people towards heart health. This time we discovered a powerful insight that made us go one step further. The insight stems from something that most of us worry about but don’t link to heart health which is the presence of belly fat. This led us to the idea of – ‘self-check your heart-health’ by measuring your belly fat.”

          Буква и дух Конституции Валерий Зорькин - о тревожных призывах к кардинальным конституционным реформам      Cache   Translate Page      
Все мы видим, что Россия сегодня стоит перед лицом нарастающих внешних вызовов.

Нам приходится встречать эти вызовы в условиях далеко не благополучной социально-экономической ситуации в стране.

Именно по этим причинам мне представляются особенно тревожными вновь появляющиеся призывы к кардинальным конституционным реформам.

Разумеется, у нашей Конституции есть недостатки. В их числе отсутствие должного баланса в системе сдержек и противовесов, крен в пользу исполнительной ветви власти, недостаточная четкость в распределении полномочий между президентом и правительством, в определении статуса администрации президента и полномочий прокуратуры. Конструкция ст. 12 Конституции дает повод к противопоставлению органов местного самоуправления органам государственной власти (в том числе представительным органам государственной власти), в то время как органы местного самоуправления по своей природе являются лишь нижним, локальным звеном публичной власти в Российской Федерации.

Недостатки существуют и в разграничении предметов ведения и полномочий между Федерацией и ее субъектами.

Но подобные недостатки вполне исправимы путем точечных изменений, а заложенный в конституционном тексте глубокий правовой смысл позволяет адаптировать этот текст к меняющимся социально-правовым реалиям в рамках принятой в мировой конституционной практике доктрины "живой Конституции". Опора на эту доктрину дает возможность, не искажая сути правового смысла, заложенного в текст Конституции Российской Федерации, выявлять его актуальное значение в контексте современных социально-правовых реалий.

Конституционный cуд уже давно ориентируется на такой подход к толкованию Конституции.

Нам надо и дальше идти по этому пути, стремясь глубже понимать, раскрывать и постоянно развивать правовой потенциал нашего Основного Закона.

Представления же о том, что путем радикальной конституционной реформы можно развернуть ход событий в каком-то более правильном направлении, - не просто поверхностны и недальновидны, но и опасны, поскольку чреваты резкой социально-политической дестабилизацией. Разговоры о том, что можно изменить структуру жизни с помощью одних лишь юридических решений - это наивный идеализм, если не что-то худшее.

Заложенный в Конституции глубокий смысл позволяет адаптировать этот текст к меняющимся социально-правовым реалиям

Это опасно прежде всего потому, что Конституция в качестве Основного Закона одновременно выполняет и важнейшую социально-интегративную функцию. Внутри страны Конституция - ключевой фактор обеспечения пусть не единодушного, но явно преобладающего общественного согласия и, значит, социально-политической стабильности. На международной арене Конституция - важнейший фактор поддержки и укрепления национальной идентичности, обусловленной историческими, социокультурными и геополитическими особенностями развития России.

Конституционный путь к общественному согласию и справедливости

В основу нашей Конституции заложены доктрина неотчуждаемых прав человека и принцип правового равенства, получившие конкретизацию и развитие в целом ряде конституционных положений.

Сказанное отнюдь не означает, что мы решили проблему общественного согласия. От создания правовых рамок для такого согласия, удерживающих общество от правонарушающих способов решения конфликтов, до реального действенного "общественного договора" - дистанция немалая. И нам еще предстоит ее пройти. Причем пройти в условиях весьма большой неопределенности, чреватой самыми разными проблемами и рисками.

В этой связи важно понимать, что Конституция РФ - не просто итог социального компромисса, достигнутого на определенном историческом этапе. Если бы это было так, то на каждом новом этапе развития общества и государства могла возникать потребность в новом социальном компромиссе, то есть в достаточно радикальных конституционных изменениях. Конституция содержит в своем тексте потенциал правовых преобразований, рассчитанный на обозримое историческое будущее страны. Она позволяет в определенной степени уточнять условия общественного компромисса в меняющихся социальных реалиях, обеспечивая таким образом социально-политическую стабильность, необходимую для дальнейшего развития.

Но для этого надо уметь вовремя увидеть те болевые точки, в которых фокусируется социальная напряженность на данном этапе развития общества, найти способы снять или сгладить эту напряженность и облечь эти способы в надлежащие правовые формы.

Судя по характеру многочисленных жалоб в Конституционный Суд, в настоящее время главным источником напряженностей в российском обществе является нерешенность социально-экономических проблем, в том числе недостаточная защита социальных прав граждан. Социологические исследования подтверждают, что ожидания и даже требования социальной справедливости выходят у населения на первый план и что несправедливости в разных сферах жизни воспринимаются людьми крайне болезненно.

Социальное напряжение, порождаемое чувством несправедливости, усугубляется естественной усталостью населения от трех десятилетий реформ, а также беспрецедентным (и добавлю - неправовым, т.е. противоречащим нормам международного права) экономическим, и прежде всего санкционным, давлением на Россию со стороны США и Западной Европы.

Наиболее болезненно и остро воспринимается обществом крайне несправедливое распределение бремени проводимых в стране экономических реформ, свидетельством которого в первую очередь является чрезмерное социальное расслоение. По данным официальной статистики, децильный коэффициент (отношение доходов 10% наиболее богатых к доходам 10% наиболее бедных) в России один из самых высоких в мире и приближается к 17 единицам. По неофициальным авторитетным оценкам, масштабы социального расслоения в стране еще выше. За чертой бедности находятся свыше 20 млн россиян. В этой связи нельзя не отметить, что год назад мы отмечали столетие революционных событий 1917 г., которые, как сейчас ясно, были порождены прежде всего глубоким социально-экономическим расколом внутри российского общества.

Исследования Института социологии РАН фиксируют системное изменение взаимоотношений работников и работодателей со смещением акцента в этих отношениях в сторону углубления бесправного положения работающих, наращивания объемов их трудовых нагрузок с одновременным снижением их социальной защищенности.

Особенную тревогу вызывает то, что в России очень высока доля так называемых "работающих бедных", а также то обстоятельство, что самая массовая группа бедных - это семьи с детьми. Да и в целом социологи и юристы признают, что по таким принятым в международной практике показателям уровня жизни, как прожиточный минимум, минимальный размер оплаты труда и индекс развития человеческого потенциала, налицо разрыв между правовыми предписаниями, характеризующими те или иные аспекты социальной справедливости, и фактическими показателями.

В настоящее время проблема социальной поляризации приобретает еще большую остроту в свете грядущих социальных последствий масштабной автоматизации, роботизации и компьютеризации производства. Нельзя недооценивать то обстоятельство, что миллионы людей могут потерять работу, а с ней - не только материальное благополучие, но и социально-правовой статус и возможности реального доступа к системе страхования социальных рисков и системе политического участия. Последние законодательные решения по пенсионной реформе объективно затрагивают очень широкий спектр социально-экономических прав малоимущих слоев населения страны и, как показывают данные социологии, остро воспринимаются как несправедливые.

Надо соединить присущий народу коллективизм с созданием конкурентной экономической и политической среды

Все это говорит о том, что мы еще далеки от реализации положений статьи 7 Конституции РФ, которая гласит: "Российская Федерация - социальное государство, политика которого направлена на создание условий, обеспечивающих достойную жизнь и свободное развитие человека". В этой связи должен с сожалением заметить, что закрепленные здесь (ключевые для конституционного правопонимания!) понятия "достойная жизнь" и "свободное развитие человека" еще не получили в нашей стране не только надлежащего практического воплощения, но и адекватного их значимости теоретического осмысления.

Конституционный Суд РФ видит свой вклад в решение этой общей проблемы в последовательной защите социально-экономических прав граждан, и особенно тех слоев населения, которые оказались отрезаны от процессов приватизации бывшей советской общенародной собственности.

Соответствующие правовые позиции Конституционного Суда имеют важное значение для формирования отечественной доктрины социальных прав. В связи с этим хочу в очередной раз подчеркнуть, что под защитой таких прав Конституционный Суд понимает не государственную благотворительность, продиктованную соображениями политической целесообразности или морального характера, а реализацию положений статей 1 и 7 нашей Конституции о России как правовом, демократическом и социальном государстве, закрепляющих конституционные ориентиры социальной политики государства. Поэтому Конституционный Суд РФ стремится к созданию таких компенсационных механизмов, которые могут обеспечивать наиболее слабым членам общества равенство стартовых возможностей в реализации ими своих основных прав и свобод.

Подчеркну, что данная трактовка социальных прав не означает снижения значимости таких традиционных "либеральных" прав, как личные и политические права. Не означает она и недооценку значения конституционно-правовой защиты ценностей частной собственности и экономической свободы. Здесь важно отметить, что при всех издержках становления института частной собственности в постсоветской России сформировавшееся в итоге право частной собственности является важнейшим достижением осуществленных в стране преобразований и основой для ее последующего правового развития.

В этом смысле можно сказать, что, проверяя конституционность законодательства в социально-экономической сфере, Конституционный Суд каждый раз ищет разумный баланс и соразмерность между гарантиями частной собственности, с одной стороны, и защитой социальных прав населения - с другой, выполняя таким образом роль своего рода "социального арбитра".

Необходимость такого "арбитража" - один из аспектов более широкой проблематики, связанной с поиском оптимального соотношения между социальной справедливостью и индивидуальной свободой. В этой связи хочу обратить внимание на то обстоятельство, что усилия Конституционного Суда по решению конкретных проблем, связанных с социальной интеграцией российского общества, всегда так или иначе связаны с развитием понимания права как главного инструмента социальной интеграции, выработанного человечеством.

Опыт работы Конституционного Суда в данном направлении позволяет, как представляется, сделать вывод о том, что нам нужна сейчас такая корректировка либерально-индивидуалистического подхода к правопониманию (доминирующего в сегодняшней мировой теории и практике), которая привнесла бы в само понятие права идеи солидаризма. То есть нужна правовая теория, синтезирующая в рамках понятия права идеи индивидуальной свободы и социальной солидарности. Такой подход к правопониманию в наибольшей степени соответствует ментальности российского народа, его правовому и нравственному сознанию.

В этой связи хочу напомнить, что для русской философии конца ХIХ - начала ХХ веков (с ее учениями о соборности, всеединстве, всечеловечности и т.д.) было характерно стремление соединить идею абстрактного, обезличенного формально-правового равенства с идущей от раннего христианства идеей ответственности каждого не только за себя, но и за других. Стремление согласовать в рамках понятия права разум и дух, свободу и милосердие, право и правду, индивидуальное и социальное начала. Надеюсь, что эти достижения русской философии права будут востребованы нашей юридической теорией и практикой. Это позволит нам освободиться от ошибочных представлений о солидаризме как об идеологии авторитарного типа, и на новом уровне возродить в России солидаристское мировоззрение, которое все еще остается погребенным под обломками социализма.

Здесь нельзя не отметить, что проблема роста социальной поляризации, порождающая все более массовое и болезненное ощущение несправедливого неравенства возможностей, имеет общемировой характер. Это беда общепланетарного масштаба. По мнению специалистов, уже сейчас очевидно, что по мере нарастания неравенства на национальном и глобальном уровне вопросы справедливости устройства современного мира будут ставиться во все более острой форме.

Особенность России заключается в том, что нынешнее российское общество уже достаточно хорошо осознает связь между социально-экономическими проблемами, стоящими перед значительной частью наших сограждан, и несправедливостью приватизации крупной собственности, проведенной в стране в 90-е годы прошлого века. А это не только ставит под сомнение легитимность сложившейся системы собственности со всеми вытекающими отсюда последствиями и рисками, но и ведет к подрыву общественного доверия к справедливости социального устройства в целом.

Реальная демократия наиболее эффективно обеспечивается двухпартийной системой, формирующей волю социально-политических сил и в элитах, и в массах

Еще одной "сферой несправедливости", по-прежнему актуальной для России, оказывается проблема коррупции. Несмотря на осознание и властью, и обществом масштабов и значения данной проблемы, в этой области использованы далеко не все имеющиеся правовые возможности, в том числе связанные с имплементацией международно-правовых актов. Напомню, что коррупция в переводе с латыни - это порча, разрушение, разложение. В данном случае речь идет о разложении институтов власти, что чревато разрушением той системы общественных отношений, на которую данная власть распространяется. Поэтому борьба с коррупцией - это жизненно важный для России вопрос, без решения которого невозможно достичь искомого общественного согласия и массового признания справедливости российского социального устройства.

Между тем, как хорошо сказал известный американский философ Д. Ролз, "справедливость - это первая добродетель социальных институтов, точно так же как истина - первая добродетель систем мысли". И если важнейшая добродетель справедливости оказывается под сомнением, то социальные и политико-правовые институты не могут функционировать в достаточно эффективном режиме. Поэтому вопрос о соотношении справедливости и правовой демократии в сложившейся ситуации приобретает особую актуальность.

К сожалению, наше обществоведение не проявляет надлежащего интереса к этой теме. Однако она сохраняет актуальность и в социально-экономической, и в политической сфере.

Политический плюрализм и политическая конкуренция

Если говорить о политическом аспекте темы, то гарантированные Конституцией экономическая свобода и экономическая конкуренция в своем логическом развертывании дополняются политической свободой и политической конкуренцией, основанной на принципе политического плюрализма. Общность взглядов, целей, ценностей и интересов в политической жизни приводит к образованию различных политических объединений, которые со временем оформляются в политические партии.

Этот процесс должен протекать таким образом, чтобы в итоге государственная власть не оказалась бы фактически монополизирована какой-либо одной партией, группой, организацией и стоящими за ними силами. Необходимо, чтобы у оппозиции была реальная возможность прихода к власти в рамках Конституции, т.е. на началах честной политической конкуренции.

При этом надо понимать, что само по себе наличие нескольких или даже многих партий еще не гарантирует устойчивой правовой демократии. Требуются достаточная стабильность плюралистической системы, консолидация социальных сил и движений на основе конституционно-правовых ценностей, предотвращение резких кренов в сторону правого и левого радикализма. Как показывает мировой политический опыт, в организационном плане реальная демократия наиболее эффективным образом обеспечивается двухпартийной (двухблоковой) системой, позволяющей сформировать политическую волю основных социально-политических сил как в элитах, так и в массах. Конкуренция этих сил в парадигме "правящее большинство - парламентская оппозиция" предотвращает политическую систему от застоя и загнивания, реализует "проветривание политических легких" в государственном организме, позволяет обеспечить не только "слушаемость", но "слышимость" масс со стороны власть имущих.

Предвижу, что меня могут упрекнуть в конструировании искусственных теоретических схем, оторванных от "живой" практики. Между тем именно по таким "схемам-чертежам" создавалась двухпартийная система США (как и вся их конституционная политическая система). Не зазорно и заимствовать чужой опыт, выдержавший проверку многовековой практикой.

Но, подчеркну, при этом нельзя не учитывать тот факт, что нынешняя модель либеральной представительной демократии, характерная для большинства развитых стран, уже, как давно говорят ведущие политологи Европы или Америки, явно не справляется с современными вызовами.

Потому нам необходим поиск новой, более эффективной модели народовластия. С пониманием того, что общего для всех рецепта здесь нет. Исследователи подчеркивают, что даже в западном мире сосуществуют очень разные демократические практики. В частности, Швейцария выработала коммунальное и коллективистское понятие свободы, согласно которому свобода коммуны всегда была превыше прав частной собственности - в отличие от англо-американского понятия свободы, которое во главу угла ставит личные и частные права.

Проблема социальной справедливости в ее связи с проблемой политической демократии требует сейчас особого внимания со стороны как научного сообщества, так и всех ветвей власти. Представляется, что без надлежащего решения этой проблемы на уровне юридической теории и практики невозможно в должной мере реализовать правовой потенциал нашей Конституции.

Конституционная идентичность России

Основу жизненной позиции гражданина, связанной с ощущением им принадлежности к "многонациональному народу, соединенному, как сказано в Преамбуле Конституции РФ, общей судьбой на своей земле", составляет конституционная идентичность.

Явно выраженное в последние годы стремление разных государств к осмыслению и отстаиванию своей конституционно-правовой идентичности - в конечном итоге обусловлено, как и большинство современных политико-правовых трендов, глобализацией. Глобализация приводит, как мы видим, к тектоническим сдвигам всей системы мироустройства. Одновременно осмысливается тот факт, что порожденные глобализацией изменения далеко не всегда благо, что они несут огромные риски и уже вполне очевидные издержки в самых разных сферах человеческой жизни - от экономики до социальной жизни, от политики до культуры, - во всех регионах мира.

Отсюда возникает естественное желание противопоставить стихийным процессам социокультурной глобализации понимание собственной специфики, не поддающейся универсализации. На уровне массового сознания это проявляется в стремлении сформулировать свою религиозную, национальную или региональную (например, европейскую) идентичность, сохранять и укреплять традиционные ценности семьи, культуры, быта и т.д. А на уровне органов государственной власти это проявляется в стремлении предотвратить размывание национально-государственного суверенитета и утвердить конституционно-правовую идентичность государства.

Если говорить о сфере конституционного права, то мы видим, что здесь на риски и издержки глобализации накладывается недовольство граждан национальных государств экспансией наднационального регулирования, демократический дефицит которого становится все более очевидным.

Особо следует выделить проблему демократического дефицита наднациональных органов по защите прав человека, в том числе Европейского Суда по правам человека. ЕСПЧ, с момента вступления в силу Дополнительного протокола № 11 к Конвенции о защите прав человека и основных свобод, получил все формальные возможности для того, чтобы целенаправленно изменять конвенционную систему и чрезмерно свободно воплощать в жизнь свою активистскую позицию.

При этом влияние граждан европейских государств на сам Суд практически сведено к минимуму, что, с одной стороны, позволяет обеспечить независимость данного органа, но, с другой стороны, делает его все более оторванным от реальных социальных потребностей и от реального консенсуса, который имеет место на уровне национальных государств.

Все это порождает необходимость создания определенных "контрлимитов", которые не давали бы наднациональному юрисдикционному органу шагнуть в своей активистской деятельности слишком далеко. ЕСПЧ обладает разработанной, но достаточно противоречивой доктриной пределов усмотрения. Однако национальные государства обладают (и это прямо следует из их конституций) своими пределами уступчивости, которые очерчиваются их пониманием национальной конституционной идентичности.

Понятие конституционной идентичности в российской правовой практике впервые было использовано в постановлениях Конституционного Суда РФ от 14 июля 2015 г. № 21-П и от 19 апреля 2016 г. в связи с вопросом о возможности исполнения постановления ЕСПЧ от 4 июля 2013 г. по делу "Анчугов и Гладков против России". В этом постановлении ЕСПЧ утверждалось, что норма российской Конституции (часть 3 статьи 32), запрещающая участие в выборах лицам, содержащимся в местах лишения свободы, не соответствует Европейской конвенции о защите прав человека и основных свобод.

Несомненное влияние на разработку соответствующей доктрины в России оказала зарубежная правовая практика. Концепцию конституционной идентичности в той или иной мере используют органы конституционного контроля по всему миру для обоснования наиболее сложных решений. При этом они часто исходят из того, что именно писаная конституция является квинтэссенцией конституционной идентичности нации.

Например, Федеральный Конституционный Суд ФРГ отмечал в своих решениях, что в Основном Законе страны существуют такие положения, которые выражают фундаментальные основы немецкой государственности и не могут быть изменены. А Верховный Суд Индии в деле Minerva Mills Ltd. v Union of India прямо заявил, что "Конституция - это драгоценное наследие, идентичность которого невозможно изменить".

В данном контексте особенно непонятным и сомнительным выглядит нежелание ЕСПЧ принять во внимание тот факт, что национальные органы конституционного контроля не обладают той степенью свободы в толковании Конституции, которую позволяют себе судьи ЕСПЧ в своем толковании абстрактных положений Европейской конвенции. Так называемое эволютивное толкование Конвенции Европейским Судом, по сути дела, направлено на создание нового унифицированного европейского правопорядка. А национальная конституционная юстиция не может выйти за пределы толкования, установленные как самой Конституцией, так и сложившимися внутри общества конвенциями, лежащими в основе конституционной идентичности народа.

Если согласиться с тем, что конституционная идентичность отражает результат общественного согласия граждан государства по вопросам понимания прав человека, т.е., по сути дела, по вопросам, связанным с пониманием того, что есть человек и в чем состоит его человеческое достоинство, то тогда надо признать следующее: 1) общественное согласие в вопросе о правах человека в различных государствах имеет социокультурную специфику и 2) это именно общественное согласие, которое устанавливается большинством общества и устанавливается для большинства.

Я вовсе не имею в виду, что концепция конституционной идентичности ориентирована лишь на защиту прав большинства. Но хочу подчеркнуть, что права меньшинств могут быть защищены в той мере, в какой большинство с этим согласно. Нельзя навязывать всему обществу законодательную нормативность, отрицающую или ставящую под сомнение базовые ценности общего блага, разделяемые большинством населения страны.

Слово "нельзя" имеет здесь разные оттенки. Во-первых, просто невозможно в течение сколько-нибудь длительного времени удерживать разрывы между массовыми социальными ощущениями благого, должного и справедливого - и правовой нормативностью. А, во-вторых, это, как правило, неверно и по сути, поскольку именно позиция большинства выражает народную ментальность, со всей ее социокультурной спецификой, в подходах к решению этических вопросов, связанных с различением добра и зла. Поэтому важно понять, что именно в этой позиции большинства имеет глубокие социокультурные корни, которые нельзя бездумно и безответственно подрубать, а что может быть подкорректировано путем совершенствования народного правосознания.

Еще раз подчеркну: попытки навязать тому или иному обществу не свойственные ему представления о достоинстве человека и правах тех или иных меньшинств могут быть эффективны лишь в весьма ограниченных пределах. И это относится не только к России. Немало экспертов уже признают, что нынешний всплеск радикального популизма на Западе в значительной степени обусловлен недооценкой мнения большинства и ущемлением его прав.

Представляется, что доктрина конституционной идентичности, над которой всем нам еще предстоит много работать, может служить тем "водоразделом", который потенциально способен разделить приемлемые и подчас желанные изменения внутреннего конституционного правопорядка - и те принципы, которыми государства, признавшие обязательную юрисдикцию наднациональных органов, поступаться не могут и не должны.

Сейчас же нам нужно признать, что Россия еще не выработала такую стратегию развития, которая отвечала бы ожиданиям российского общества и его представлениям о справедливости, а также тому новому месту в мире, на которое претендует наша страна. Если попытаться сформулировать общие контуры подобной стратегии, то я бы сказал так.

Надо суметь соединить присущий российскому народу коллективизм, сформированный, - можно сказать, выкованный, - суровой природой, бесчисленными оборонительными войнами, необходимостью объединить множество наций и народностей "общей судьбой на своей земле", на основе конституционных принципов правового, демократического и социального государства, - с созданием конкурентной экономической и политической среды. Честная конкуренция в сфере экономических и, что не менее значимо, политических отношений, - это современное преломление главного принципа диалектики, согласно которому единство и борьба противоположностей является источником всякого развития. Без этого стране грозит очередной застой, опасные последствия которого мы уже испытали на своем опыте.

Без всего перечисленного мы не обеспечим решение той генеральной задачи, которую уже более полутора столетий пытались решить поколения российских правоведов и политиков, - задачи России взять правовой барьер и, значит, полноценно жить по Конституции. А без решения этой генеральной задачи Россия не сможет обрести свое новое высокое и прочное место во все более сложном и далеко не благостном глобальном мире.

I was initially surprised not to see more from the 2004 World Series on these charts. It only shows up as #9 in OBP differential. As a Cardinals fan, I remember it distinctly feeling like the Cardinals never had much of a chance in any game other than Game 1, which the Red Sox won 11-9. Looking back, it wasn't among the most lopsided by total run differential (24-12) or most of these stats shown by Jeff, but I'm reminded why it felt so lopsided: - The Cardinals never led any game at any point. (Game 1 was tied as late as the 8th inning, but the Cardinals never led.) - In each of Games 2 through 4, the Red Sox led by either 3 or 4 runs after the 5th inning. These were games that ended 6-2, 4-1, and 3-0.

Ah, the Indianapolis Colts. A franchise so pathetic they had to start a fake cheating scandal to have even a sliver of hope of knocking the Patriots off the pedestal they're still on. You really can't get much lower than that. Things haven't gone well for Indy since the AFC title game. Andrew Luck has missed nearly two full seasons with multiple injuries (although he's back now and looking healthy, which is good for the league), and their team is still full of nobodies. Their fans know this, and had no hope going into this one.

Just heard the roof at Gillette Stadium will be open tonight

Any word on the pressure of the footballs?? Haha

I want to see us fight. I want to see us get pressure on Brady and get him uncomfortable where he plays his worst... I want to see our offense under Frank play chess straight up against Bellichick instead of our usual checkers... We need points tonight. I don't mind losing this one. But I want to see us fight.

Please, just keep the game close at least! I don't want to see another blowout by the pats, especially on primetime

Joe Buck doesn't have any idea who the players are on our team tonight other than Luck and Vinatieri

Glad we go on defense first...Lets turn Brady over

I know we aren’t supposed to do well record wise this season but it’s still hard to watch your team lose games

Too easy man

This won’t be good....

Swiss cheese!

Ok Andrew we need you to have best game of your life .

They got away with a pick on that 2nd down play

The Rivalry is back on!

Pathetic

Yes. Lulling them into a false sense of security!

Hello everyone... Goodbye everyone..

That thing we did. If we could not do it again that’d be great.

we need 34-35 points

Ladies and gentleman we are televising this game nationally so we can spend 3 hours of NON-STOP saying boy these Pats are just great .

Jesus. Christ.

did our HB run into our guard on pass protection?? OMG

Is it bedtime already?

Holy hell.

So that isn’t landing with your weight on the qb lol...I mean it’s a stupid rule but that was doing it by like 3 guys lol.

Clark just let his man come through untouched. I guess that PFF will rate him as having a great game.

Was surprised at how many people thought this game would be close let alone think we would “shock the world.” We’re about to get beat handily.

We look scared

Switching from beer to the hard stuff... Hoping I pass out before halftime.

Anyone think Tom brakes single game TD record tonight. I say he throws 8.

I would hand the ball off every down. Andrew is going to get killed. Colts always play scared against the Patriots. So tired of this broken record.

After this game we will be 1-4 and we can just enjoy watching the games without the hope of winning.

Lol its 1.40am here in Europe. I'm pulling an all nighter to watch this game.. may need to re-assess this decision

I've seen this crappy movie before!

How many more years to fix the oline?

I predicted 48 16 win before game started for the Pats. I am not sure we score hahah. I just knew a blow out was coming with all our injuries. Ballard first order of business next year.....get two O tackles. U watch Luck over the first years of his career and I doubt any qb does wat he did with the talent he has been given. And I am including all the past and present qbs

I just left work early to sit up and watch this. Don’t think i’ll nod off, the pain is too much. Still can’t unders how Ebron dropped that...oh wait, it’s Ebron

I'm getting tempted to root for the Past to blow us out to put us I out place. I'm not there yet.

anyone know the starting line up?

Pascal was held..no call

NO Adam...No

yep ima go to sleep

That’s it, can we just go home?

Adam is still a Patriot... jesus

Ya we don’t need Le’Veon Bell or anyone else

Just Stop.

James white.. Shane vereen. Dion Lewis. Kevin faulk all the same guy.. how TF do they do it?

I hate to see where we rank in red zone offense

This looks to be a laughable game in the making.

This is starting to look like the AFC Title Game. What a wonderful start

Geathers got lit up

Geathers got blown up by an illegal hit by the RB.

No penalty against the Pats, now there is a shock!!!

One sided officiating

This team is so soft it’s embarrassing

Patriots playing to rough for us.

Literally sick to my stomach watching this.

14--0...either we score now or everybody turns to Law and Order....Special Victims Unit

Brady gets his helmet brushed and we hand them 15 yards, Geathers gets knocked out also from an illegal play and we effectively hand the Pats a touchdown......sounds fair.

Disgusting play by our decimated team, disgusting no-calls by the officials. Oy Vey.

How many times have the Colts dropped duds on prime time games? Why do I feel we always play like crap.

Typical Patriots game. The refs are one sided and so are the stupid announcers.

Why are they treating Hines like a bell cow?

Andrew luck can’t throw

Meanwhile, Brady’s throwing to guys behind the LOS and they’re gaining 10-yards a pop.

Ebron would be elite if every pass was difficult to catch.

It's comical. I just jumped on one of the Pats fan forums and they are complaining the same as this group, refs are horrible, etc. etc. etc. Except they feel they are getting the shaft and the refs are taking it easy on us. Everybody gets the homer glasses on come game night.

That pats player tackled him mid air. Caused our guy to come down awkward. That’s an injury waiting to happen

Yeah, no shut out!!!!

We actually could be in this game if we could just execute.

Alright. So we’ll be down 21-3 in about 5 minutes. Who’s up for some nachos?!

Sometimes I wish Luck would go to sidelines and yell like Brady. I know that’s not his demeanor but what could it hurt.

2 bad throws in a row by Shady Tom Brady

Great stop!!

Nice 3 and out

0-2 in passes that travel more than 5 yards for Brady in this drive.

Okay here we go... turn the tables

C'mon I have puked enough today ……. (I live in NY Metro area) I have had to listen to 3-4 NY Radio stations all day (probably still at it) remind the world that the NY Yankees are the 5000 times greater than any other professional organization in the history of the human race. If you do not root for the Yankees you just MUST BE DUMB . I would rather chew on razors than root for the Yankees.

if we had our starters we would be winning

That’s our answer for 3rd and 17?

Reich’s play calling is very predictable. screen pass on 3 and long.

Edelman is such a chump. I wish someone would knock his block off

Is there a more horrible little %#% in the NFL than Edelman, can’t stand him. If he was made of chocolate, he’d eat himself.

So no sacks on stone foot Brady yet.

So who can go both ways if we lose anymore guys??

Sooooo......most people predicted the Colts would get handled being so short handed...then lose more players....then get mad when Colts are getting handled.

we shouldve just forfeited and taken a week off our starters were hurt now the rest of them are hurt poor luck man his return season and he is throwing to pascal and rogers with Clark protecting his blind side

Colts are soft dropping like flies. Young team will think the Patriots are the scariest team in the NFL after this beatdown.

Go Pacers!

As long as Brady is playing, the only way we beat the Patriots is the same way we beat them 10-15 years ago - surround Luck with weapons, build a super offense and outscore them.

Next man up. Oh! he's down

Players are quitting.

Wow a penalty against pats

Don't know if I'll b back after halftime

Are we not even trying to cover the backs out of the backfield?

Can't believe how butthurt some Colts fans are about Brady.

we might as well blitz on every play, they cant cover anything

Score here. Then we get the ball to start the 2nd half. Let's go!

Good play. Party is over

This team is so bad.

No excuse for that throw man

we let the DE walk in untouched.....and they read the 'hot read' better than we did.

Thanks for gifting the Patriots another chance, Andrew. So dumb.

why do our primetime games have to be against the pats

Its never been rivalry folks! They own us.

Bright side is it's half over.

This team is a dumpster fire.

Sucks so much to be destroyed on national tv, the average viewer doesn't know that we have 11 starters out, :/ people now will think that we're this bad

We are PATHETIC!!! This team might be young but come on, they just look really bad. Probably would be best to pull Luck so he doesn’t get killed. So far the results are the same with the new leadership.

Well truthfully, only one team is going to be happy at the end of the year. I just hope it's not these Patriots.

If we broke a run for 7 yards I'd * my pants

Think we could convince Gronk to eat a tide pod? Tell him it’s pre-workout?

The Pats team is filled with a bunch of nobody’s except for Brady but they continue to dominate,

Sheard almost got Brady for a safety....Yeah, I know. Almost. But he got there.

TD, Luck to Ebron! Luck looked fired up on the sideline, do not see that much!

I'd love to see Sheard, former Patriot, lay a hard hit on Brady. A sack would be great right about now.

For as bad as we are, how are these unbelievably superior Pats only beating us by 14...hmmmm

Our guys still have plenty of fight left in them!

No excuse not to light up these slugs...if jags & lions did so should we.

Ward had Brady,..just couldnt bring himdown

Nice INT!

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!

Still fighting!

Farley with the pick! Got the stop. C'mon, offense, get some points!!

We dont need to be posing when we're down 14 boys!!

Might have been 6 of we didn't push Hogan to Farley

Nice INT!!! Do we really need to do the group photo?

Yeah. Fumble. He wasn't down. What a waste of an interception.

oh well lol

Bahahahahaha Gronk! Hahahahaha

If we could get this to one score it could be an entertaining 4th quarter.

We need 7 here to have any chance. If we can get it to 24-17 the game will be on, We are definitely a team that doesn't quit.

Hey, our 2nd team is better than the dolphins lol

That was a very, very bad drop.

Wow. Rogers. Broke my heart.

That drop is a KILLER!!!

Lol.

The pats will be one of the most untalented 3-2 teams in nfl history.

COLTS!!!!!

We’re in it in the 4th quarter, how awesome!!!

TD.....There's Swiope..wheres he been@!!!!!

Wooooooooooooohoooooooo, we could win this. Just thought about all the guys who stopped watching at halftime.

Lady Gaga is oddly attractive

Told you guys that 06 afccg magic, but nooooooooo one wanted to believe me

I cant believe how we are basically on life alert and still in the game lol

That was a hold on Dorsett.

NE got away with holding on the WR screen

HOLDING

This team is trash

Totally pitiful defense.

lol... Brady had ALL DAY to toss that , and we still should've batted it down

No way that should have been caught.

That was major Holding on the Pats, Brady had all day to throw. The throw was even lucky. Into double coverage LOL. Man we can't catch a break against this team.

I’m not sure how 2 guys let that be caught. Wow

Wow, I have seen it all!

Game over.

Do our receivers use grease on their gloves or what?

Alright that will do it. Not enough talent on the team to begin with let alone dealing with 15 freaking injuries.

We have a worse record then the browns everyone

Defense got nothing left. Can't even rag on them at this point.

Soo we just have the dumbest. Least fundamentally sound team... just the timing we choose to make these * plays are just kill me

Could we be any worse? Wow what an embarrassment. We really showed those Patriots. All we want to talk about is how they may or may not have deflated footballs (forever ago) or how their assistant coach stiffed us. It doesn’t matter, Pats are still winning and we are still losing and living in the past. At this point, time to bring in Jacoby and not get Luck killed. Colts are wasting Lucks best years. Wouldn’t surprise me if Luck wants out.

I wish luck would rip into this team. A bunch of no catching sorry receivers

Team is trash. Worse backup receivers in the league, worse corners,worse run game. Wow

4.45am and I’m still watching this

NE is trash. Their decline is real. They're done!

          McLaren repite una elección conservadora de neumáticos para Austin      Cache   Translate Page      
mclaren-repite-una-estrategia-conservado

La formación de Woking ha vuelto a destacarse del resto de equipos, una vez más, a la hora de comunicar su selección de neumáticos de cara al Gran Premio de Estados Unidos. Fernando Alonso y Stoffel Vandoorne serán los dos pilotos con más juegos del compuesto blando en Austin, con una suma de seis para el asturiano por cinco del belga, una elección que respalda la teoría de Gil de Ferran por la que los anglosajones pensaban que el MCL33 haría una mejor gestión de las gomas más duras a estas alturas de la temporada, una creencia que jugó en su contra en Japón.

Las temperaturas del asfalto en el trazado estadounidense serán vitales para comprobar esta convicción, puesto que la lluvia influyó sobremanera en el tratamiento de los neumáticos en Suzuka. En lo más alto de la tabla, Lewis Hamilton contará con un juego más de blandos que Sebastian Vettel, mientras que el piloto alemán de Ferrari, por el contrario, dispondrá de un set de ultrablandos más que el británico. La Scuderia reconoció problemas con los neumáticos en tierras niponas, a pesar de haberse destacado por dominar esta faceta en otras fases de la temporada, una situación que podría dar un nuevo vuelco.

Por su parte, el otro español de la parrilla, Carlos Sainz, arriesgará un poco más que su compañero de equipo al haber optado por elegir un set de superblandos más que Nico Hülkenberg. Red Bull es el equipo de cabeza con menos ultrablandos tras demostrar un buen ritmo en el tramo final de la gira asiática, al tanto que Racing Point Force India, Sauber y Williams cierran esta lista con hasta nueve conjuntos de ultrablandos, los que más neumáticos de este tipo han elegido.

Indian Noob - "We are almost coming to the end of 2018, and there is still a whole bunch of highly anticipated and equally promising games on the radar. While 2017 proved to be one of the best years for the gaming industry after almost a decade, 2018 hasnt disappointed us till now as well. While games like God of war (read our review here) redefined linear storytelling, Marvels Spider-man (read our review here) dethroned Arkham games (Not going to start another Arkham City vs Arkham Knight war here, by naming one of the two here) to be the best superhero game ever made. With a number of high budget AAAs still due to release later this year, some smaller indie gems are likely to go under the radar. To make sure these games dont go unnoticed, and to ensure that our audience has something casual to read every Sunday after undergoing through an existential crisis caused by reading Backlog Burner on Saturday, we decided to venture off the beaten AAA road, and discover some indies.

    TRANSCRIPT:

    3:12 p.m. EDT

    MS NAUERT: Hi, everyone. Good afternoon. Nice to see you all. Okay, a couple announcements to start before we’re able to take a few questions today.

    First, I’d like to address the earthquake and tsunami in Central Sulawesi in Indonesia, and I’d like to say that the United States is coordinating closely with the Government of Indonesia to respond to the earthquake and tsunami that struck there. Since I spoke to you last week, the United States, through USAID, is now providing a total of $3.7 million in assistance through our partners to deliver essential relief items, including shelter kits, blankets, hygiene kits, solar-powered lamps, and other lifesaving aid. USAID is also airlifting heavy-duty plastic sheeting to Indonesia to provide for emergency shelter needs of up to 110,500 people. USAID has deployed a team of disaster experts to coordinate our humanitarian response efforts and is supporting a U.S. Forest Service emergency operations expert who’s on the ground providing technical support to the Government of Indonesia’s disaster response.

    The Department of Defense has provided three C-130s and has already transported nearly 30 – 63 metric tons of disaster relief supplies into the affected areas. The U.S. Government has also provided advanced technologies to help the Government of Indonesia map the disaster area.

    In addition, American companies have also mobilized to respond with financial donations, heavy equipment, transportation, and other humanitarian supplies. The U.S. citizens we were aware of in the affected areas have been evacuated. We have no reports of U.S. citizens who have been injured or killed by the earthquake or the tsunami, and we urge any additional U.S. citizens in the affected areas to contact their loved ones directly and update them on their social media status. If you’re in the affected area and need emergency services, please contact the local authorities.

    Next, I want to address something that the Secretary raised last week because nothing has changed. There are still 65 State Department nominees sitting in the United States Senate. That’s over a quarter of all the senior-level confirmable positions that the United States Department of State is tasked with using to achieve its diplomatic outcomes. There is bipartisan agreement that a fully staffed State Department is critical to American national security. The State Department has been criticized for having gaps in leadership positions, but now we’ve done our part to fix that; now the Senate needs to do its part.

    As the Secretary has said, these candidates are quality candidates. They’re not sitting on the Senate floor because of objections with respect to their quality, their professionalism, or their excellence and ability to deliver American foreign policy. The Secretary had addressed this last week, and he said we have members of the Senate for whom partisanship has now driven delay and obstruction of getting America’s diplomatic corps into every corner of the world. What Senator Menendez and other members of the Senate are doing to hold back American diplomacy rests squarely on their shoulders.

    And with that I’d be happy to take your questions. Anne, you want to go ahead?

    QUESTION: I wanted to ask about Jamal Khashoggi.

    MS NAUERT: Mm-hmm.

    QUESTION: Have you received any response from Saudi Arabia since Secretary Pompeo registered concerns regarding his disappearance?

    MS NAUERT: Sure. Let’s start out – first, I’d like to say I imagine that most if not all of you saw the statement that we put out last night. You probably also heard the President’s comments about it yesterday and also the Vice President’s tweet that he put out yesterday.

    From the Secretary on down, we have been engaged in this matter. This is something that we’ve been following. I understand that the President intends to speak with the Saudis, so I’m not going to get ahead of that conversation that the President may be having.

    In the Secretary’s statement, he said that we’ve seen conflicting reports about his status. We’re not going to make any judgments about what had happened to him. The United States is certainly concerned about his whereabouts. Senior officials at the State Department have spoken with Saudi officials through diplomatic channels about the matter. We call on the Government of Saudi Arabia to conduct a thorough and transparent investigation.

    QUESTION: It was nearly a week between his – first reports of his disappearance and that statement from Secretary Pompeo. Why was there such a delay between those two events?

    MS NAUERT: So are you assuming that taking time to put out a statement means that the State Department has not been doing anything? Is that your assumption?

    QUESTION: What was the State Department doing before the statement came out?

    MS NAUERT: The State Department was engaged at the highest levels and also at the working level and having conversations with Saudi Government officials, and I’ll leave it at that.

    QUESTION: And then so what was the reason behind that delay in the statement coming out?

    MS NAUERT: I wouldn’t – I wouldn’t call it a delay. The United States Government, as we handle situations in other countries as well, sometimes we decide to conduct our conversations and to conduct our diplomacy more privately than publicly because we feel that that could have the best outcome, and I’ll leave it at that.

    Okay. Hi, Lesley. Go ahead.

    QUESTION: Hi. Welcome back.

    MS NAUERT: Thank you.

    QUESTION: You must be exhausted, having just arrived.

    MS NAUERT: Kylie is here, I’m here, so we’re doing okay for so far.

    QUESTION: Just arrived last night. Yes.

    MS NAUERT: Yes.

    QUESTION: Has the U.S. seen any evidence that Jamal might be alive?

    MS NAUERT: We don’t know what has happened to him. We don’t have any information on that. That’s why I want to say we don’t want to make any judgments about what happened, and we call for a thorough and transparent investigation.

    QUESTION: You’ve called for a thorough and transparent inspection from the – investigation from the Saudis, but what about the Turks? Have you asked them for their evidence, if they’ve seen --

    MS NAUERT: I don’t have any information on that. I think that would be in the FBI’s lane and local investigators’ lane.

    QUESTION: But you said you – they – that on these diplomatic channels you’ve spoken to the Saudis, but what about the Turks?

    MS NAUERT: I don’t have any information on that. I would imagine that through the course of our conversations with the Turkish Government – we have many conversations with the Turkish Government – that this has certainly come up.

    QUESTION: But that would be – that would be P, yes?

    QUESTION: Did the Secretary --

    MS NAUERT: Just hold on. Hold on.

    QUESTION: On Friday, I saw on the Public Schedule that Mr. Hale had a meeting with the Turkish ambassador here at the State Department.

    MS NAUERT: I was out on Friday, so I don’t recall what was on his private – on his public schedule. I’d have to just double-check on that, okay?

    QUESTION: Okay. So --

    MS NAUERT: I’m not saying it didn’t happen. I’m just not aware of it if it did. I was out on Friday.

    Go ahead.

    QUESTION: Since this happened on Turkish soil, wouldn’t speaking to the Turks and being part of their investigation be absolutely key to --

    MS NAUERT: I did not say that we have not spoken with the Turkish Government. I just don’t have any information on it at this moment. Okay? If I have anything in addition for you, I’ll let you know.

    Hey, Carol.

    QUESTION: Hi. Can I ask a follow-up on Jamal Khashoggi?

    MS NAUERT: Sure.

    QUESTION: So the UK foreign secretary has said that if the reports are correct, “We will treat the incident seriously.” I wanted to ask why can’t – or why has not Secretary Pompeo said that if the reports are true and the Saudis, our allies, turn out to be cold-blooded killers, that there will be repercussions?

    MS NAUERT: I think that would be entirely a hypothetical question, and so if the Brits decide to comment that way, they’re more than welcome to do so. But we’re going to wait until the facts come out, and we call again for a thorough and transparent investigation.

    QUESTION: Will there be repercussions?

    MS NAUERT: Carol, I’m not going to get ahead or assume that anything happened. We’re calling for a thorough and transparent investigation. And again, let me say this one more time: I’ll leave it at that. I don’t have anything more for you on this today.

    QUESTION: Can you just confirm if it was Pompeo?

    QUESTION: Does the Secretary plan to speak himself with his counterpart in Saudi Arabia, and did he raise this question when he spoke with the crown prince last week?

    MS NAUERT: I can confirm --

    QUESTION: There was a readout --

    MS NAUERT: I can confirm that the Secretary has had phone conversations, but I don’t have any of the details. And some of those would just be private diplomatic conversations, which I will not be able to read out. Last time I’ll say this: I don’t have anything more for you on this today. If and when I have more, I will bring it to you. Okay?

    Go right ahead.

    QUESTION: On the Palestinians.

    MS NAUERT: Yes.

    QUESTION: Two quick --

    QUESTION: Is it okay? Can I have one more follow-up on Khashoggi, please?

    MS NAUERT: Sir, I don’t have anything --

    QUESTION: It’s in relation to what you just said.

    MS NAUERT: I don’t have anything more for you on that.

    QUESTION: Let me just --

    MS NAUERT: When I do, I would be happy to give it to you.

    QUESTION: Let me just ask my question, and you decide if you don’t want --

    MS NAUERT: Okay, I’ve not met you before, but go right ahead. Welcome to the State Department. And tell me your publication.

    QUESTION: Fadi Mansour with Al Jazeera. I’ve been covering this place for 10 years now, thank you very much.

    MS NAUERT: Pardon me?

    QUESTION: I’ve been covering this place for 10 years. I don’t come every day because I cover other places.

    MS NAUERT: Okay. Well, it’s nice to meet you. You’re welcome anytime.

    QUESTION: Yes. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to ask questions. So --

    MS NAUERT: Go right ahead. And this will be the last question on this. Go ahead.

    QUESTION: Thank you. So the fact that you called on the Saudis to carry an investigation, is the State Department assuming that Saudi Arabia is responsible for the whereabout of Khashoggi?

    MS NAUERT: We’re not assuming anything. Only because it was their consulate, we’re asking them to conduct an investigation.

    QUESTION: Thank you.

    MS NAUERT: Said, go right ahead.

    QUESTION: Yes, very quickly, U.S. envoy Mr. Greenblatt said that the Trump plan, the deal of the century, is heavily focused on Israeli security. Does that mean that you guys are giving up on the two-state solution, or you see the – you don’t see any, like, contradictions between focusing on Israeli --

    MS NAUERT: This is something that we have talked about for a very, very long time. We support that if both parties --

    QUESTION: And this was --

    MS NAUERT: -- if both parties can agree to it.

    QUESTION: Right.

    MS NAUERT: That hasn’t changed.

    QUESTION: But this was only yesterday. I mean, he went out of his way to say that it is focused on Israeli security. What does that mean to you?

    MS NAUERT: I’m not going to parse his words. I’d just refer you back to his comments. But our position has not changed. As the President has laid out, as he did not too long ago at the UN General Assembly, that we support a two-state solution if both sides can agree to that.

    QUESTION: And one quick question on a young American student who has been detained in Israel for the past five days because she supports BDS. Are you – can you share with us if you’ve done anything? Has she contacted the American embassy, or are you in touch with her? Do you know her whereabouts?

    MS NAUERT: We are aware of her case. Our embassy is providing consular access, as we would to all American citizens. We value freedom of expression. You and I have talked about this many times.

    QUESTION: Right. Many times.

    MS NAUERT: Also in cases where people don’t agree with local policies or even the United States policies. Ultimately, it is up to the Government of Israel to decide who it wants to let into the country. I don’t have anything more for you on that.

    QUESTION: But she – this young woman, Lara Alqasem, she has a visa. She was accepted at the Hebrew University. She was going there to study and so on. She – all of the stuff that she should have done was already done. Are you not concerned about that?

    MS NAUERT: Said, it’s ultimately up to the Government of Israel, or any country for that matter, to decide which individuals, which Americans, it wants to let in. Okay?

    Hi.

    QUESTION: Heather, the issue is not that she wasn’t allowed in. It’s that she’s being detained.

    MS NAUERT: Excuse me. Or being detained. I don’t have any information beyond that. Okay?

    Laurie, go right ahead.

    QUESTION: Hi. Nadia Murad, the Yezidi woman who was captured by ISIS and help captive, just won the Nobel Peace Prize, as probably everyone knows, and she spoke yesterday. And she did note one positive point, the start of de-mining in Yezidi areas, which I assume is related to Secretary Pompeo’s announcement in July at the Religious Freedom conference of extra money for de-mining in the northern Iraq religious minority areas. So they’re very happy with that, but overall it was a grim picture, and among her complaints was no justice for Yezidis. And you and others, including the UN, have recognized ISIS’s assault on the Yezidis as genocide, but the Iraqi Government hasn’t. Are you prepared to put any pressure on them to do so?

    MS NAUERT: I’m not familiar with her remarks. Of course, I’m familiar with who she is. She was one of the guests at our religious freedom ministerial that was held over the summer, and we were so proud to have hosted her here. My understanding is that the Vice President is meeting with her – I believe it’s today. The Secretary and I had a brief exchange about her becoming one of the co-winners of the Nobel Peace Prize, and we’re really proud of her. She’s a very heroic woman, who’s done so much to advance the cause of not just religious freedom but also freedom for women, especially freedom from sexual crimes.

    I don’t have her comments. I don’t have those remarks, so I’m just not going to comment on it beyond that.

    QUESTION: How about her call for an international criminal trial for those members of ISIS who have committed these crimes against Yezidis?

    MS NAUERT: I’m afraid I just don’t have anything for you on that today. Okay?

    QUESTION: South Asia?

    MS NAUERT: Okay, hi.

    QUESTION: Heather?

    MS NAUERT: How are you?

    QUESTION: Thank you. Welcome from (inaudible).

    MS NAUERT: Thank you.

    QUESTION: Okay, on North Korea, this trip – has Kim Jong-un submitted a list of nuclear facilities, or you got anything from him for evidence of nuclear list?

    MS NAUERT: We sure did. We made a lot of progress. As you know, we just got back last night from three – four countries in I think it was three days. So it was a very busy time. The Secretary and Chairman Kim discussed the four pillars of the Singapore summit. That was something that was important for them to do. They spent considerable time together. The Secretary and the President, of course, have referenced that since – the Secretary just over at the White House, speaking about this.

    Among the things they also discussed was an upcoming second summit that would be attended by our President and also Chairman Kim, and we look forward to working on all of the details of that. They also agreed to instruct their respective working level groups, led by Steve Biegun, our special representative, and also his counterpart who was named in North Korea, to start intensifying discussions on some of those four pillars that were laid out in the Singapore summit.

    As you know, Chairman Kim had invited inspectors to visit the Punggye-ri nuclear test site to confirm that it’s been irreversibly dismantled. We were pleased with that. And President Trump looks forward to continuing to build upon the trust that was first established at the Singapore summit.

    So we view it as making a lot of progress. We’re pleased with that.

    QUESTION: But North Korea has already destroyed Punggye-ri nuclear site and Tongchang-ri missile site. They --

    MS NAUERT: I think we can say this: We can affirmatively say that they invited a group of journalists out to watch something take place. Inspectors have not been there yet. So inviting inspectors to join, to take a look, and do their work is entirely different from what we’ve seen already.

    QUESTION: Is that happen for denuclearizations?

    MS NAUERT: I’m sorry?

    QUESTION: Is this have for the denuclearizations, for what you – U.S. exactly needed to, but -

    MS NAUERT: That would be a positive step forward, and Chairman Kim agreed to that, to have inspectors at that site.

    QUESTION: Follow up on --

    MS NAUERT: Okay. Go ahead. Let’s just – hold on, I’ll come back to you. Hi.

    QUESTION: So you’ve made progress on a Trump-Kim summit. Do you have any idea of, like, the timing on that? Like, will it be before the end of the year or sometime afterwards?

    MS NAUERT: Well, as the President has said – and I’m not going to get ahead of the President, of course, but the President has said he looks forward to seeing Chairman Kim soon. As you all remember, when we were planning for the Singapore summit, that takes time. There are a lot of details that are involved in pulling together a summit of that magnitude. We need to find a place that both countries can get to. We have to compare schedules – Chairman Kim’s schedule, the President’s schedule, the Secretary’s schedule, probably National Security Advisor Bolton’s schedule – a lot of schedules. We also have to identify a place that has the infrastructure that is needed to accommodate 5,000 journalists. I believe there are 5,000 that were accredited last time.

    So there are a lot of things that come into play here, and so we are hard at work at that. I know Steve Biegun looks forward to having follow-on conversations with his counterpart about some of those details that go into the summit. And as soon as we have something for you, we’ll let you know. Okay.

    QUESTION: So would you say that the – what you’re waiting for to announce even a time or a location for that, is it all just logistical, then?

    MS NAUERT: Well, Michelle, as I just said, and I’ll repeat it again: A lot goes into this. We start with --

    QUESTION: I heard that. Yeah. You don’t have to repeat it.

    MS NAUERT: We start with comparing schedules.

    QUESTION: You don’t have to repeat it.

    MS NAUERT: Okay.

    QUESTION: I’m trying to save you some time. So are you saying that it’s all logistical before you announce a date and time, or are you waiting for North Korea to do something?

    MS NAUERT: We are looking forward to having our second summit. The President is looking forward to doing that. The timing of that will ultimately be announced by the White House. It’ll be a White House led meeting. And when we’re ready to announce that, we will.

    QUESTION: But the question is --

    MS NAUERT: Yeah.

    QUESTION: -- since you listed all the logistics involved, are you simply waiting for logistics, or are you waiting for North Korea to do something related to denuclearization?

    MS NAUERT: We have not said anything about waiting for North Korea to do anything more -

    QUESTION: Okay.

    MS NAUERT: -- in order to have that summit. Okay. Nick.

    QUESTION: And when you say a lot of progress, since Punggye-ri is by many accounts an aging facility that’s already been destroyed, by allowing inspectors to come there and see this, which is not necessarily key to North Korea’s current and future nuclear program, why would you characterize that as a lot of progress?

    MS NAUERT: Michelle, I think that’s a very good step. I’ll go back and say it one more time. What you have seen were a bunch of journalists brought out to that site and you saw some sort of an explosion. Sending in inspectors to take a look around is an entirely different step and a step in the right direction, and we think that that’s progress, along with the other things that were addressed in the meeting.

    Nick, go ahead.

    QUESTION: Just as a follow-up to that, I think one of the big questions is what exactly the administration, Secretary Pompeo, President Trump, actually want to achieve from this summit. What’s the main – the headline goal for --

    MS NAUERT: I’m not going to get ahead of the President. The Secretary firmly believes – and I know that this is much to your dismay, to reporters’ dismay – that our negotiations are best handled in public, so I’m not going to get – negotiate it here with all of you from the podium, and I’ll let our experts do the negotiating and do their work and not get ahead of that.

    QUESTION: Heather --

    MS NAUERT: Hi.

    QUESTION: Follow-on on that. The first summit was about general commitments, complete denuclearization by Chairman Kim. Do you expect from the next summit to achieve broader agreement with the ways and --

    MS NAUERT: I’m not going to get ahead of what is being discussed at that summit, okay.

    QUESTION: Not what is being discussed, but what you expect.

    MS NAUERT: My job is not – my job is not to lay out what our policy will be.

    QUESTION: Because we see your goal; we don’t see your method. So --

    MS NAUERT: And – okay, so that’s a fair point. You see our goal, but you don’t see our method. That is something --

    QUESTION: Do you want to do it – work in progress, step by step, or do you want to have a deal --

    MS NAUERT: That is something that we will discuss --

    QUESTION: -- with everything inside?

    MS NAUERT: We will discuss that with the North Koreans and not the broader public, not the media, because we believe that negotiations – some of these complicated negotiations – are best handled between our country and theirs. And our objective is to get to the fully, final, verified denuclearization of North Korea. We are working hard toward that goal. We think we’ve made progress and we’ll continue working toward that goal.

    QUESTION: Ambassador Haley --

    MS NAUERT: Hi. Go ahead. Hi.

    QUESTION: India.

    QUESTION: Welcome back.

    MS NAUERT: Thank you.

    QUESTION: So Secretary Pompeo did not meet with the Chinese President Xi Jinping on Monday. Could you please shed some light on what happened? And what is – what was the reason given – provided by Chinese Government? Because it’s a understanding that arrangements were being made for this meeting to happen.

    MS NAUERT: We never announced any specific meetings ahead of our trip to China. Is it not every time that the Secretary would go to any given country that he would be meeting with the president of that country. Sometimes he does; sometimes he doesn’t. And so that was just a reflection of this trip, but I know the Secretary had good, constructive meetings with his Chinese counterparts that he met with yesterday.

    QUESTION: Ambassador Haley --

    QUESTION: Has the U.S. asked to such meeting to happen? Has the United States asked China – ask Chinese Government to arrange a meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping?

    MS NAUERT: Not to my knowledge. Anything going forward, we’ll let you know when we have that planned.

    QUESTION: Would you characterize U.S.-China relationship as a strategic competitor?

    MS NAUERT: Well, look, they’re certainly a competitor. It’s a complex and broad-based relationship that we have with China, as you all saw in the comments and exchanges between the Secretary and his counterparts. We have areas of common interest. North Korea is one of them. Working to combat illegal narcotics is another area where we work well together. We also have areas of disagreement and areas where we have challenges, and we’ll keep working together on that. It’s obviously an important relationship that we need to work hard to maintain. Okay.

    QUESTION: Ambassador Haley --

    MS NAUERT: Yeah. Yes, go ahead.

    QUESTION: Ambassador – very quickly. Was the Secretary surprised that Ambassador Haley resigned? Does he have any comment? Could you share with us what was his reaction?

    MS NAUERT: Well, I think the Secretary addressed that from the White House today, in which he talked about what a great partner Ambassador Haley has been. The Secretary and Ambassador Haley have worked very well together since the beginning of this administration, but I would say more closely once he became Secretary of State. At the working level, from my level, her team and Ambassador Haley have been wonderful to work with. Sorry to see her depart. This happens, of course, in administrations. The Secretary, I think, is sorry to see her depart as well.

    I’m not going to get into who knew what when and all of that. What is ultimately important is that the President knew about her decision well in advance. They had those conversations. I’m not privy to those conversations, so I’d have to refer you to the White House for that. We’re sorry to see her go and thank her for all her incredible service that she’s done on behalf of the U.S. Government and on taxpayers at the United Nations.

    QUESTION: May I just follow up?

    MS NAUERT: Okay. Okay.

    QUESTION: A follow-up?

    MS NAUERT: Last question. I’m going to have to go.

    QUESTION: So we saw the exchange of rhetorics when Secretary Pompeo was in China. Would you say those tensions now between United States and China would spill over to your cooperation on North Korea at this very critical time?

    MS NAUERT: We don’t think so, because China again and again has said to us, publicly and privately, that they are committed to the denuclearization of North Korea. They understand that; they recognize that. They recognize the importance of that matter. We don’t think they’re backing away. What we do say, though, is that countries including China and Russia can always do more. They can do more, but they are also one of the countries that had voted for UN Security Council resolutions, and so we expect those to uphold those.

    I’ll do one last question. Nazira, hi.

    QUESTION: Welcome back.

    MS NAUERT: Were you at the White House earlier today?

    QUESTION: Yes.

    MS NAUERT: Did I see you?

    QUESTION: Yeah.

    MS NAUERT: I thought I saw your yellow over there.

    QUESTION: Yeah.

    MS NAUERT: She gets around.

    QUESTION: Okay. Thank you.

    MS NAUERT: Thank you.

    QUESTION: Heather, I have two question, one question regarding Afghan delegation. Dr. Abdullah was here. What is their – do you think that they have any achievement? Do they meet any high officials, U.S. authority?

    MS NAUERT: I’m afraid I don’t have any information if – as to whether or not Dr. Abdullah was here at the State Department or here in Washington. I can look --

    QUESTION: He was in New York. I’m asking about General Assemblies at the – New York.

    MS NAUERT: Oh, he was in – oh, at the General Assembly.

    QUESTION: Did he have any meeting with the Secretary of State or either President Trump?

    MS NAUERT: I don’t recall that. It seems like that was a year ago even though that was only two weeks ago, so I’m so sorry. My apologies.

    QUESTION: (Off-mike.)

    MS NAUERT: I will have to check – double-check to see if he had any meetings with U.S. officials.

    QUESTION: Two weeks ago.

    MS NAUERT: Okay. I’ll check on that for you.

    QUESTION: Yeah. The next question, Ambassador Khalilzad.

    MS NAUERT: Yes.

    QUESTION: He is in Afghanistan and he traveled to Pakistan. Do you think that useful for Afghanistan, Khalilzad mission?

    MS NAUERT: I think it’s extremely helpful to have Ambassador Khalilzad out on travel. This is part of our team on the field, having our people do what they do best, and that is going out and conducting American diplomacy around the world. He is leading an interagency delegation to Afghanistan, to Pakistan, to the UAE, to Qatar, and also to Saudi Arabia. It’s a fairly lengthy trip. His mission there is to coordinate our U.S. efforts to bring the Taliban to the negotiating table. This is still Afghan-led, Afghan-owned. Our policy has not changed in any way. But we’re proud and pleased to have him out there advocating on this behalf and we’ll be working in close coordination with the Afghan Government.

    I’ve got to go, guys. We’ll see you again real soon. Thanks.

          Press Releases: Eliminate, Neutralize, and Disrupt (END) Wildlife Trafficking Report 2018      Cache   Translate Page      
Media Note
Office of the Spokesperson
Washington, DC
October 9, 2018


Today the U.S. Department of State submitted the second annual report to Congress as required by the Eliminate, Neutralize, and Disrupt Wildlife Trafficking Act of 2016 (the END Wildlife Trafficking Act).

Wildlife trafficking is a serious transnational crime that threatens security, economic prosperity, the rule of law, long-standing conservation efforts, and human health. In Executive Order 13773, President Trump called for a comprehensive and decisive approach to dismantle organized crime syndicates, specifically recognizing the connection between wildlife trafficking and transnational organized criminal networks. The United States government’s three-pronged approach to combating wildlife trafficking—strengthening law enforcement, reducing demand, and building international cooperation—deprives criminals of a key source of financing, reducing the criminal threat posed to U.S. citizens.

The END Wildlife Trafficking Act directs the Secretary of State, in consultation with the Secretaries of the Interior and Commerce, to submit to Congress a report that lists Focus Countries and Countries of Concern, as defined in the Act. Each Focus Country is a major source, transit point, or consumer of wildlife trafficking products or their derivatives. Identification as a Focus Country is neither a positive nor a negative designation. Many Focus Countries have taken significant steps to combat wildlife trafficking, including in partnership with the United States. A Country of Concern is defined as a Focus Country whose government has actively engaged in or knowingly profited from the trafficking of endangered or threatened species. The United States looks forward to continuing dialogue with both Focus Countries and Countries of Concern to thwart transnational organized crime engaged in wildlife trafficking.

The 2018 Focus Countries are Bangladesh, Brazil, Burma, Cambodia, Cameroon, China, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Gabon, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Laos, Madagascar, Malaysia, Mexico, Mozambique, Nigeria, Philippines, Republic of the Congo, South Africa, Tanzania, Thailand, Togo, Uganda, United Arab Emirates, and Vietnam. The 2018 Countries of Concern are Madagascar, Democratic Republic of the Congo, and Laos.

          Hikayat Nasi Goreng, Benarkah Hidangan Asli Indonesia?      Cache   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Yogyakarta - Selama ini orang mengenal nasi goreng sebagai kuliner yang berasal dari Indonesia. Popularitas nasi goreng bahkan sudah mendunia, Presiden ke-44 Amerika Serikat, Barack Obama pun selalu ingat dengan menu yang pernah disantapnya semasa kecil saat menetap di Indonesia.

Lembaga survei tingkat dunia seperti CNN telah melakukan survei sejak 2007 sampai 2017. Hasilnya, nasi goreng menempati tempat kedua makanan terenak di dunia setelah rendang.

Meskipun demikian, tidak banyak yang tahu asal mula nasi goreng di bumi nusantara.

"Nasi goreng berkaitan dengan kebudayaan atau asimilasi budaya," ujar Chef Wira Hardiyansyah dalam seminar Indonesia Culinary Conference And Creative Festival di Grha Sabha Pramana UGM, Selasa, 9 Oktober 2018.

Ia bercerita semula nasi goreng merupakan teknik mengawetkan makanan. Praktik itu diterapkan di Tiongkok berabad-abad lalu.

Teknik menghangatkan makanan yang menjadi cikal bakal nasi goreng di nusantara itu bertujuan untuk membuat daging babi lebih tahan lama. Nasi goreng di Tiongkok pada zaman itu hanya berupa nasi yang diberi kecap dan potongan daging babi.

Pada abad ke-10 nasi goreng sampai ke nusantara melalui saudagar yang berlabuh di Kerajaan Sriwijaya. Nasi goreng merupakan produk pertukaran budaya yang dimodifikasi dengan bumbu atau rempah-rempah.

"Rempah-rempah dari nusantara inilah yang memperkaya cita rasa nasi goreng sampai sekarang," ucap Wira.

Ketika masa pendudukan Belanda di tanah air, nasi goreng menjadi menu kelas atas. Mereka sangat senang dengan cita rasa nasi goreng dari Indonesia.

Menurut orang Belanda, nasi goreng dari Indonesia paling komplet. Mereka membandingkan dengan nasi goreng dari Jepang yang tidak komplet, hanya berisi nasi, kecap, dan sayuran.

Dalam tata cara makan mewah bangsa Belanda pada zaman Hindia Belanda, nasi goreng termasuk dalam menu Rijstaffell. Sampai sekarang, orang Belanda juga menyebut nasi goreng sesuai dengan bahasa Indonesia, yakni nasi goreng, bukan dalam bahasan Inggris fried rice.

"Saya pernah bekerja di Belanda dan mereka tidak kenal fried rice, tetapi nasi goreng," tuturnya.

Kiprah nasi goreng sampai mendunia juga diperkuat dengan lagu dari Wieteke van Dort yang berjudul Nasi Goreng.

Sebagian orang menambahkan mentega ketika memasak nasi goreng untuk menghasilkan aroma yang harum. Lainnya memilih mencampur dengan minyak jelantah atau minyak sisa untuk mendapatkan aroma dari percampuran beberapa gorengan sekaligus.

 

Lebih dari 100 Ragam Nasi Goreng di Indonesia

Nasi goreng merupakan hidangan hasil asimilasi budaya dan kini merepresentasikan hidangan dari Indonesia (Liputan6.com/ Switzy Sabandar)#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Peneliti Pusat Penelitian Pangan dan Gizi (PSPG) UGM Murdijati Gardjito memaparkan hasil penelitian tentang ragam nasi goreng Indonesia dengan program Database Kuliner Indonesia. Hasilnya, terdapat 104 ragam nasi goreng di Indonesia.

Sebanyak 36 ragam nasi goreng bisa ditelusuri asal usulnya dan 59 ragam merupakan resep pengembangan.

"Hal ini menunjukkan cita rasa nasi goreng merupakan cita rasa universal yang dapat diterima hampir seluruh masyarakat dan menunjukkan fleksibilitas bahan tidak terlalu banyak mengubah cita rasa nasi goreng," ujar Murdijati.

Sebaran nasi goreng didominasi wilayah Jawa dan Sumatera. Ragam nasi goreng terbanyak ada di Jawa, sekitar 20 jenis, yang tersebar di Sunda, Betawi, Semarang, Yogyakarta, Surakarta, dan Jawa Timur bagian selatan serta utara.

Menurut Murdijati, penikmat nasi goreng sangat luas, tidak memandang status sosial ekonomi, sehingga nasi goreng yang merupakan bagian dari kuliner Indonesia pantas menjadi representasi hidangan Indonesia tingkat dunia.

Ia juga mengungkapkan nasi goreng sudah menjadi nama hidangan karena terdapat sembilan ragam nasi goreng yang tidak seluruhnya berbahan nasi. Misal, nasi goreng jewawut dari Palembang yang menggunakan jewawut, nasi goreng kagili dari Buton yang menggunakan jagung giling, dan magelangan dari Yogyakarta yang menggunakan campuran nasi dan mi.

          Waspada, Dua Tempat Ini Paling Berbahaya Buat Selfie      Cache   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Jakarta - Memotret diri sendiri alias selfie , ternyata jadi salah satu penyumbang kematian manusia.

Belum lama ini, sebuah studi yang dipublikasikan di Journal of Family Medicine and Primary Care, ada 259 kematian di dunia akibat selfie antara Oktober 2011 hingga November 2017.

Namun, tahukah kamu bahwa ada dua tempat yang ternyata paling berbahaya untuk tempat ber-selfie, apa saja?

Berikut Tekno Liputan6.com kutip dari Business Insider, Selasa (8/10/2018).

Tempat pertama yang dianggap berbahaya untuk selfie adalah tempat dengan air. Berdasarkan studi, setidaknya ada 70 kasus selfie berujung kematian di air selama enam tahun terakhir.

Insiden yang dimaksud meliputi orang selfie tersapu ombak di pantai, hingga kapal terbalik yang mengakibatkan orang tenggelam.

Menurut studi, kematian akibat selfie di air sangat mematikan karena lebih banyak melibatkan banyak orang. Bahkan, 70 kematian terjadi karena 32 insiden.

Selanjutnya, tempat lain yang juga berbahaya buat selfie adalah tempat-tempat tinggi.

Berdasarkan hasil studi, ada 48 orang meninggal saat orang sedang ber-selfie di tempat tinggi. 48 kematian tersebut berasal dari 41 kasus.

Penyebab Kematian

Ilustrasi Orang lagi selfie (iStockPhoto)#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Selfie memang bisa sangat berbahaya hingga menimbulkan kematian. Selain di air dan tempat tinggi, ada sejumlah penyebab kematian lain saat selfie.

Pertama, kematian saat selfie yang disebabkan karena hewan. Ditotal, ada delapan kematian dalam tujuh kasus saat selfie yang disebabkan karena hewan.

Penyebab kematian saat selfie lainnya adalah karena tenggelam dengan jumlah kematian sebanyak 70 orang dari 32 kasus.

Sengatan listrik juga cukup banyak membunuh korban saat selfie dengan jumlah kematian mencapai 16 orang.

Penyebab kematian saat selfie juga terjadi pada kasus orang jatuh dan api masing-masing membuat 48 orang meninggal.

Ada juga orang yang sedang selfie yang meninggal karena senjata api. Jumlahnya pun cukup tinggi yakni 11 kematian.

Selfie saat berada di kendaraan juga berbahaya. Menurut penelitian yang sama, 51 orang dalam 28 kasus mengalami kematian saat berada di transportasi.

Kasus Kematian karena Selfie Terbanyak di India

Inilah alasan kenapa kamu tidak boleh mengirim teks sambil mengemudi atau melakukan selfie sambil mengemudi.#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Sebenarnya, studi ini dilakukan oleh sejumlah peneliti di India. Mereka menyebut, dibandingkan di negara lain, kasus kecelakaan saat selfie paling banyak terjadi di India.

Peneliti menggunakan data dari liputan dan kovering berita yang dipublikasikan oleh portal berita berbahasa Inggris.

Artinya, kemungkinan besar ada kematian lain akibat selfie dalam enam tahun terakhir yang belum dipublikasikan dalam bahasa Inggris.

Untuk mengurangi angka kasus kematian akibat selfie, para peneliti menyarankan agar kota atau tempat-tempat umum lainnya diberi keterangan "bukan zona selfie"

Ide ini pertama kali akan diterapkan di Mumbai, dengan total 16 tempat umum dilarang selfie.

Selain India, negara lainnya yang cukup banyak angka kasus kematian akibat selfie adalah Rusia.

Liputan6.com, Jakarta - Ada banyak perdebatan mengenai pengaruh robot dan kecerdasan buatan terhadap pekerjaan yang ada saat ini. Pada 10 tahun ke depan, diperkirakan ada 1 juta pekerjaan di Amerika Serikat (AS) yang mungkin akan tergantikan oleh teknologi automasi.

Namun, beberapa riset juga menyatakan bahwa kemajuan teknologi akan lebih banyak menciptakan pekerjaan-pekerjaan baru dibanding memusnahkan yang ada. Disrupsi akibat kemajuan teknologi automasi ini ternyata juga mempengaruhi proses perekrutan pekerja baru.

Banyak perusahaan yang mulai menggunakan teknologi robotik untuk mempercepat proses perekrutan, mempermudah pekerjaan hiring manager, serta mengurangi bias yang bisa merugikan pelamar.

Bahkan, hampir seluruh perusahaan yang masuk dalam Fortune 500 menggunakan semacam automasi untuk meningkatkan proses perekrutan mereka.

CEO dan Co-Founder Triplebyte Harj Taggar mengklaim bahwa platform yang didirikannya membuka peluang bagi kandidat yang lebih beragam. “Rekrutmen yang dilakukan oleh perekrut kurang efektif karena perekrut cenderung mencari tipe-tipe orang yang serupa,” ujarnya, dilansir dari CNBC Make It.

Tingkat penerimaan Triplebyte pun merefleksikan yang dikatakan pendirinya. 40 persen kandidat yang menggunakan Triplebyte berhasil mendapat pekerjaan, 2 kali lebih besar dibanding rata-rata penerimaan industri yang hanya 20 persen.

          10-10-1780: Badai Paling Mematikan di Kepulauan Karibia Tewaskan 20 Ribu Jiwa      Cache   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Hindia Barat - Pulau-pulau di Karibia atau Hindia Barat porak poranda akibat badai besar hari ini, 10 Oktober 238 tahun silam. Menewaskan lebih dari 20.000 orang.

Tepat pada 10 Oktober 1780, seperti dikutip dari History.com, bencana dahsyat tersebut dikenal sebagai Great Hurricane tahun 1780, badai paling mematikan yang pernah tercatat dalam sejarah masa tersebut.

Pada saat Great Hurricane melanda, Revolusi Amerika mereda dan memicu pasukan angkatan laut Inggris serta Prancis berebut mengendalikan Hindia Barat. Padahal wilayah itu merupakan daerah berbahaya di dunia untuk dilintasi kapal -- diperkirakan sekitar satu dari 20 kapal yang dikirim ke Hindia Barat hilang di laut selama era tersebut.

Laksamana Inggris George Radney memiliki armada 12 kapal perang yang berpatroli di pulau-pulau Hindia Barat ketika badai besar itu mendekat.

Kapal-kapal itu tidak mampu menahan terjangan badai, sehingga delapan di antaranya tenggelam di Pelabuhan St. Lucia. Ratusan pelaut tewas dalam insiden tersebut.

"Bangunan-bangunan terkuat dan seluruh bagian rumah yang sebagian besar terbuat dari batu dan memiliki ketahanan bangunan yang luar biasa, rusak akibat amukan angin besar itu, bagian fondasinya rusak; semua benteng hancur, dan banyak meriam berat yang terbawa sejauh seratus kaki dari benteng," papar Radney.

"Jika saya tak menyaksikannya sendiri, mungkin tak ada yang bisa membuatku percaya dengan kekuatan Great Hurricane. Lebih dari 6.000 orang tewas, dan semua penghuni bangunan jadi korban."

"Hanya dua rumah di seluruh St. Lucia yang masih berdiri. Bahkan ada beberapa laporan yang menyebut bahwa kulit kayu sampai terkelupas dari pohon di beberapa lokasi. Umumnya, ini hanya terjadi jika kecepatan angin lebih dari 200 mil per jam," jelas Radney.

Sementara itu, Prancis juga tak bernasib baik seperti Inggris. Mereka kehilangan sekitar 40 kapal dan 4.000 tentara.

Korban terbanyak akibat terjangan Great Hurricane berada di Martinique dan Barbados.

Martinique tercatat memiliki lebih dari 9.000 orang tewas, sedangkan 4.000 jiwa meninggal di Barbados. Lebih dari 1.000 orang juga dilaporkan jadi korban di Jamaika.

Banyaknya jumlah korban jiwa membuat Great Hurricane dijuluki badai paling mematikan dalam sejarah pada masa itu.

Meskipun ada banyak badai mematikan beberapa tahun sejak 1780, hanya Badai Mitch pada tahun 1998 yang menewaskan sekitar 18.000 orang. Jumlah korbannya mendekati Great Hurricane.

Pada tanggal yang sama tahun 1986, sebuah gempa bumi mengguncang San Salvador, El Salvador. Musibah itu mengakibatkan sekitar 1.500 orang tewas.

Lalu pada 10 Oktober 2007 tercatat sejarah sebagai momen saat orang pertama Malaysia di angkasa luar. Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor meluncur dengan pesawat Rusia, Soyuz TMA-11.

The Honourable James Gladstone:

James Gladstone, or Akay-na-muka, meaning "Many guns," Canada's first native senator (b at Mountain Hill, North-West Territories 21 May 1887; d at Fernie, BC 4 Sept 1971). Gladstone, a member of the Blood tribe, devoted most of his life to the betterment of Canadian Aboriginal peoples. He was president of the Indian Association of Alta (IAA) and three times was a delegate to Ottawa to discuss proposed changes in the Indian Act. He played a prominent part in the fight for better education, greater respect for treaty rights, and participation of Aboriginals in their own administration. On 1 February 1958 he was appointed to the Senate of Canada and in his maiden speech he spoke in Blackfoot "to place in the official debates a few words in the language of my people, the Blackfoot Indians, as a recognition of the first Canadians." In the Senate, Gladstone spoke strongly on issues that affected Aboriginals; he sat on the 1959 joint committee to investigate Aboriginal affairs.

The bust of the late Honourable James Gladstone, senator from 1958 to 1971, was created by Rosemary Breault-Landry in 2000. It was commissioned to celebrate the first aboriginal person to serve in the senate. Senator Gladstone proudly wears a ceremonial feather headdress decorated with fir boughs in the form of a crown. A leather strap knotted under his chin is present to secure the headdress. He is wearing an undershirt and a leather vest on which a native motif has been created by a hammer and metal punch. Honoured to have been the first Aboriginal person to serve in the Senate, the senator conveys an aura of serenity and realizes that while he has played a role in advancing the cause of First Nation Peoples, much more remains to be done.

          Timses Jokowi: Sandiaga Bandingkan Nasi Ayam di Jakarta dan Singapura Tidak Apple to Apple      Cache   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Jakarta - Calon wakil presiden Sandiaga Uno membandingkan harga nasi ayam di Singapura yang dinilainya jauh lebih murah daripada di Jakarta. Dirinya menyebut harga nasi ayam di Singapura itu Rp 35 ribu sedangkan di Jakarta Rp 50 ribu.

Terkait hal itu, Wakil Ketua Umum Tim Kampanye Nasional Jokowi-Ma'ruf, Arsul Sani, mengatakan kemungkinan yang dimbil Sandiaga sebagai contoh adalah tempat makan murah di Singapura.

"Mungkin Pak Sandi belinya itu, nasi ayamnya itu di Warteg India sebelah Masjid Sultan (di Kampung Glam, Singapura). Itu pun tidak Rp 35 ribu. Saya kan suka makan disitu. 5 dollar Singapura itu, berarti Rp 53 ribuan-lah. Sementara beliau makan nasi ayam itu paling enggak kalau di Restoran Padang di Natrabu atau di Garuda, iya mesti beda kelasnya," ucap Arsul di Posko Cemara, Jakarta, Selasa (9/10/2018).

Dia menegaskan, jika perbandingan yang dilakukan Sandiaga Uno restorannya sama kualitasnya, bisa dipastikan akan lebih mahal di Singapura ketimbang di Jakarta.

"Tapi kalau restoran tempat beli makannya comparable, apple to apple, pasti lebih mahal di Singapura. Katakanlah kita makan sama-sama di food court misalnya Takashimaya Centre (Takashimaya Shopping Centre, Orchard Road, Singapura) dengan di sini Plaza Indonesia atau Grand Indonesia, pasti lebih mahal disana," jelas Arsul.

Dia pun mencontohkan, jika salah membandingkan tempat, maka bisa saja lebih mahal di Jakarta daripada di Singapura.

"Tapi kalau bandinginnya dengan Plaza Indonesia atau Grand Indonesia dengan di Lucky Plaza Singapura, itu bisa lebih mahal di situ (Lucky Plaza). Jadi kita harus apple to apple tempatnya lah. Kalau apple to apple tempatnya, enggak mungkin harga makanan dan minuman Singapura lebih murah daripada yang ada di Jakarta," pungkasnya.

 

 

Perbandingan Sandiaga

Sandiaga membandingkan harga bahan pangan Indonesia dengan Singapura dan India. Ia mengatakan, berdasarkan informasi yang ia dapatkan, harga berbagai bahan pangan di India seperti beras dua kali lipat lebih murah dibandingkan dengan di Indonesia.

Tak hanya itu, harga sepiring nasi ayam di Singapura juga lebih murah dibandingkan dengan di Indonesia. Jika di Singapura harga sepiring nasi ayam sekitar 3,5 dolar Singapura (SGD) atau sekitar Rp 35 ribu, di Indonesia harganya sekitar Rp 50 ribu.

Hal ini disampaikan Sandi usai bertemu para milenial di kawasan Tebet, Jakarta Selatan beberapa waktu lalu.

"Jadi kalau misalnya di Singapura sepiring chicken rice itu 3,5 dolar (SGD) atau Rp 35 ribu, di sini mungkin bisa Rp 50 ribu," sebutnya.

Sandiaga mengatakan informasi ini ia dapatkan dari tim ekonomi Prabowo-Sandi. Tim ekonomi tersebut mengumpulkan informasi tersebut dari berbagai sumber data.

"Tim ekonomi yang menyadur informasi-informasi yang didapat dari beberapa data, data dari World Bank yang menyatakan bahwa harga bahan pangan di Indonesia jauh lebih mahal, dua kali lipat dari di India. Dan sepiring makan siang seperti di Bebek Kaleyo ini kalau dibandingkan dengan kualitas yang sama di Singapura jauh lebih mahal di sini," jelas Sandiaga.

Informasi dari tim ekonomi ini menjadi masukan bagi pasangan Prabowo-Sandi untuk lebih fokus menggarap isu ekonomi yang akan diangkat selama masa kampanye ini. Menurut dia, mahalnya harga pangan di Indonesia menjadi hal prioritas yang akan mereka perbaiki.

          Hikayat Nasi Goreng, Benarkah Hidangan Asli Indonesia?      Cache   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Yogyakarta - Selama ini orang mengenal nasi goreng sebagai kuliner yang berasal dari Indonesia. Popularitas nasi goreng bahkan sudah mendunia, Presiden ke-44 Amerika Serikat, Barack Obama pun selalu ingat dengan menu yang pernah disantapnya semasa kecil saat menetap di Indonesia.

Lembaga survei tingkat dunia seperti CNN telah melakukan survei sejak 2007 sampai 2017. Hasilnya, nasi goreng menempati tempat kedua makanan terenak di dunia setelah rendang.

Meskipun demikian, tidak banyak yang tahu asal mula nasi goreng di bumi nusantara.

"Nasi goreng berkaitan dengan kebudayaan atau asimilasi budaya," ujar Chef Wira Hardiyansyah dalam seminar Indonesia Culinary Conference And Creative Festival di Grha Sabha Pramana UGM, Selasa, 9 Oktober 2018.

Ia bercerita semula nasi goreng merupakan teknik mengawetkan makanan. Praktik itu diterapkan di Tiongkok berabad-abad lalu.

Teknik menghangatkan makanan yang menjadi cikal bakal nasi goreng di nusantara itu bertujuan untuk membuat daging babi lebih tahan lama. Nasi goreng di Tiongkok pada zaman itu hanya berupa nasi yang diberi kecap dan potongan daging babi.

Pada abad ke-10 nasi goreng sampai ke nusantara melalui saudagar yang berlabuh di Kerajaan Sriwijaya. Nasi goreng merupakan produk pertukaran budaya yang dimodifikasi dengan bumbu atau rempah-rempah.

"Rempah-rempah dari nusantara inilah yang memperkaya cita rasa nasi goreng sampai sekarang," ucap Wira.

Naik Kelas pada Masa Kolonial

Ketika masa pendudukan Belanda di tanah air, nasi goreng menjadi menu kelas atas. Mereka sangat senang dengan cita rasa nasi goreng dari Indonesia.

Menurut orang Belanda, nasi goreng dari Indonesia paling komplet. Mereka membandingkan dengan nasi goreng dari Jepang yang tidak komplet, hanya berisi nasi, kecap, dan sayuran.

Dalam tata cara makan mewah bangsa Belanda pada zaman Hindia Belanda, nasi goreng termasuk dalam menu Rijstaffell. Sampai sekarang, orang Belanda juga menyebut nasi goreng sesuai dengan bahasa Indonesia, yakni nasi goreng, bukan dalam bahasan Inggris fried rice.

"Saya pernah bekerja di Belanda dan mereka tidak kenal fried rice, tetapi nasi goreng," tuturnya.

Kiprah nasi goreng sampai mendunia juga diperkuat dengan lagu dari Wieteke van Dort yang berjudul Nasi Goreng.

Sebagian orang menambahkan mentega ketika memasak nasi goreng untuk menghasilkan aroma yang harum. Lainnya memilih mencampur dengan minyak jelantah atau minyak sisa untuk mendapatkan aroma dari percampuran beberapa gorengan sekaligus.

 

Lebih dari 100 Ragam Nasi Goreng di Indonesia

Peneliti Pusat Penelitian Pangan dan Gizi (PSPG) UGM Murdijati Gardjito memaparkan hasil penelitian tentang ragam nasi goreng Indonesia dengan program Database Kuliner Indonesia. Hasilnya, terdapat 104 ragam nasi goreng di Indonesia.

Sebanyak 36 ragam nasi goreng bisa ditelusuri asal usulnya dan 59 ragam merupakan resep pengembangan.

"Hal ini menunjukkan cita rasa nasi goreng merupakan cita rasa universal yang dapat diterima hampir seluruh masyarakat dan menunjukkan fleksibilitas bahan tidak terlalu banyak mengubah cita rasa nasi goreng," ujar Murdijati.

Sebaran nasi goreng didominasi wilayah Jawa dan Sumatera. Ragam nasi goreng terbanyak ada di Jawa, sekitar 20 jenis, yang tersebar di Sunda, Betawi, Semarang, Yogyakarta, Surakarta, dan Jawa Timur bagian selatan serta utara.

Menurut Murdijati, penikmat nasi goreng sangat luas, tidak memandang status sosial ekonomi, sehingga nasi goreng yang merupakan bagian dari kuliner Indonesia pantas menjadi representasi hidangan Indonesia tingkat dunia.

Ia juga mengungkapkan nasi goreng sudah menjadi nama hidangan karena terdapat sembilan ragam nasi goreng yang tidak seluruhnya berbahan nasi. Misal, nasi goreng jewawut dari Palembang yang menggunakan jewawut, nasi goreng kagili dari Buton yang menggunakan jagung giling, dan magelangan dari Yogyakarta yang menggunakan campuran nasi dan mi.

          Waspada, Dua Tempat Ini Paling Berbahaya Buat Selfie      Cache   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Jakarta - Memotret diri sendiri alias selfie , ternyata jadi salah satu penyumbang kematian manusia.

Belum lama ini, sebuah studi yang dipublikasikan di Journal of Family Medicine and Primary Care, ada 259 kematian di dunia akibat selfie antara Oktober 2011 hingga November 2017.

Namun, tahukah kamu bahwa ada dua tempat yang ternyata paling berbahaya untuk tempat ber-selfie, apa saja?

Berikut Tekno Liputan6.com kutip dari Business Insider, Selasa (8/10/2018).

Tempat pertama yang dianggap berbahaya untuk selfie adalah tempat dengan air. Berdasarkan studi, setidaknya ada 70 kasus selfie berujung kematian di air selama enam tahun terakhir.

Insiden yang dimaksud meliputi orang selfie tersapu ombak di pantai, hingga kapal terbalik yang mengakibatkan orang tenggelam.

Menurut studi, kematian akibat selfie di air sangat mematikan karena lebih banyak melibatkan banyak orang. Bahkan, 70 kematian terjadi karena 32 insiden.

Selanjutnya, tempat lain yang juga berbahaya buat selfie adalah tempat-tempat tinggi.

Berdasarkan hasil studi, ada 48 orang meninggal saat orang sedang ber-selfie di tempat tinggi. 48 kematian tersebut berasal dari 41 kasus.

Penyebab Kematian

Ilustrasi Orang lagi selfie (iStockPhoto)#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Selfie memang bisa sangat berbahaya hingga menimbulkan kematian. Selain di air dan tempat tinggi, ada sejumlah penyebab kematian lain saat selfie.

Pertama, kematian saat selfie yang disebabkan karena hewan. Ditotal, ada delapan kematian dalam tujuh kasus saat selfie yang disebabkan karena hewan.

Penyebab kematian saat selfie lainnya adalah karena tenggelam dengan jumlah kematian sebanyak 70 orang dari 32 kasus.

Sengatan listrik juga cukup banyak membunuh korban saat selfie dengan jumlah kematian mencapai 16 orang.

Penyebab kematian saat selfie juga terjadi pada kasus orang jatuh dan api masing-masing membuat 48 orang meninggal.

Ada juga orang yang sedang selfie yang meninggal karena senjata api. Jumlahnya pun cukup tinggi yakni 11 kematian.

Selfie saat berada di kendaraan juga berbahaya. Menurut penelitian yang sama, 51 orang dalam 28 kasus mengalami kematian saat berada di transportasi.

Kasus Kematian karena Selfie Terbanyak di India

Inilah alasan kenapa kamu tidak boleh mengirim teks sambil mengemudi atau melakukan selfie sambil mengemudi.#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Sebenarnya, studi ini dilakukan oleh sejumlah peneliti di India. Mereka menyebut, dibandingkan di negara lain, kasus kecelakaan saat selfie paling banyak terjadi di India.

Peneliti menggunakan data dari liputan dan kovering berita yang dipublikasikan oleh portal berita berbahasa Inggris.

Artinya, kemungkinan besar ada kematian lain akibat selfie dalam enam tahun terakhir yang belum dipublikasikan dalam bahasa Inggris.

Untuk mengurangi angka kasus kematian akibat selfie, para peneliti menyarankan agar kota atau tempat-tempat umum lainnya diberi keterangan "bukan zona selfie"

Ide ini pertama kali akan diterapkan di Mumbai, dengan total 16 tempat umum dilarang selfie.

Selain India, negara lainnya yang cukup banyak angka kasus kematian akibat selfie adalah Rusia.

          Di Masa Depan, Anda Mungkin akan Diwawancara oleh Robot      Cache   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Jakarta - Ada banyak perdebatan mengenai pengaruh robot dan kecerdasan buatan terhadap pekerjaan yang ada saat ini. Pada 10 tahun ke depan, diperkirakan ada 1 juta pekerjaan di Amerika Serikat (AS) yang mungkin akan tergantikan oleh teknologi automasi.

Namun, beberapa riset juga menyatakan bahwa kemajuan teknologi akan lebih banyak menciptakan pekerjaan-pekerjaan baru dibanding memusnahkan yang ada. Disrupsi akibat kemajuan teknologi automasi ini ternyata juga mempengaruhi proses perekrutan pekerja baru.

Banyak perusahaan yang mulai menggunakan teknologi robotik untuk mempercepat proses perekrutan, mempermudah pekerjaan hiring manager, serta mengurangi bias yang bisa merugikan pelamar.

Bahkan, hampir seluruh perusahaan yang masuk dalam Fortune 500 menggunakan semacam automasi untuk meningkatkan proses perekrutan mereka. Facebook dan Apple misalnya, bekerjasama dengan platform Triplebyte yang menggunakan program kecerdasan buatan untuk melakukan wawancara online dengan software engineer. Teknologi ini kemudian mencocokkan pelamar dengan pekerjaan yang paling relevan dengan keahlian mereka.

CEO dan Co-Founder Triplebyte Harj Taggar mengklaim bahwa platform yang didirikannya membuka peluang bagi kandidat yang lebih beragam. “Rekrutmen yang dilakukan oleh perekrut kurang efektif karena perekrut cenderung mencari tipe-tipe orang yang serupa,” ujarnya, dilansir dari CNBC Make It.

Tingkat penerimaan Triplebyte pun merefleksikan yang dikatakan pendirinya. 40 persen kandidat yang menggunakan Triplebyte berhasil mendapat pekerjaan, 2 kali lebih besar dibanding rata-rata penerimaan industri yang hanya 20 persen.

“Ketika digunakan dengan benar, perekrutan pekerja berbasis AI bisa mengurangi bias, meningkatkan pengalaman kandidat, mengurangi waktu perekrutan, dan mengurangi turnover di masa depan,” tutur ahli ketenagakerjaan di situs TopResume Amanda Augustine.

Teknologi ini juga tidak hanya menguntungkan pihak perekrut saja tetapi juga pelamar kerja. Riset perusahaan rekrutmen global Randstad pada 2017 menunjukkan 91 persen pelamar kerja di AS percaya bahwa teknologi membuat proses melamar kerja lebih efisien. Selain itu, responden juga merasa lebih dihargai dan dilibatkan dalam proses rekrutmen. 

Namun, industri perekrutan harus berhati-hati dalam menyeimbangkan penggunaan teknologi untuk membuka peluang bagi calon pekerja dan pada saat bersamaan tidak menutup pekerjaan yang lain. (Felicia Margaretha)
