          China’s Human Rights Abuses Against Uighurs in Xinjiang      Cache   Translate Page      
During a 2013 trip to Kazakhstan, Xi Jinping announced the “Belt and Road Initiative” (BRI)—China’s ambitious plan to enhance its “friendship” with the rest of the world through expanded investments in infrastructure and trade. Xinjiang, a resource-rich autonomous region in Northwest China lying at the border of Kazakhstan and seven other central Asian countries, was to be a crucial economic artery for this new world-embracing plan. Five years later, Xinjiang looks nothing like Xi’s vision of an internationally cooperative, friendly China. Under the guise of “fighting terrorism,” China has created a large-scale program for the mass surveillance, incarceration and re-education of Xinjiang’s  Turkic-speaking Muslims, the Uighurs, as well as other minority groups. These actions clearly contravene China’s international commitments as well as its own domestic law—but it’s unclear what actions the…

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.)



(VEGBX is not connected in any way to VWOB/VGAVX, Vanguard's EM bond index funds. VEGBX is an active mutual fund. It has accumulated about $100 MM in assets.)



[Snip...]


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. Of course there's that elephant in the room - maybe call it a panda:

          Bruce Arthur: Canada might have to rescue the Winter Olympics      Cache   Translate Page      

Not to put too much pressure on Canada, especially given the current state of the neighbours, but it may be up to us to save the Olympics. Not the movement itself, of course. There are lots of Canadians like Beckie Scott and Dick Pound and others who are fighting the good fight on existential underpinnings like doping. And thank goodness for them.

But for the moment they appear to have lost that fight. In some ways, the Olympics don’t want to be saved.

When it comes to the 2026 Winter Games, though, Canada may be the only hope. There are only three potential bids, which the International Olympic Committee approved Tuesday: Milan and Cortina D’Ampezzo in Italy (which could be the last Winter Games in central Europe ever, if you think about it), Stockholm in Sweden (plus some sliding in Latvia), and Calgary (plus some events in Whistler, B.C.). Turkey, the autocratic bid, was dropped last week. You know what they say about scapegoat-based autocratic populism these days: they can’t win ’em all.

The IOC, meanwhile, insists there is no Plan B, which is the kind of thing you say when you have great options, right? Salt Lake City is definitely not just sitting there, ready to be an emergency Olympic host and give NBC two straight chances to make the most patriotic possible pile of time zone-friendly money.

But other than a last-ditch Mormon option, or maybe Barcelona, Canada appears to be the safest harbour left. The IOC was effusive, of course. Vice-president Juan Antonio Samaranch Jr. said in the IOC Session in Buenos Aires, “People might say that we only have three candidates. But let me tell you, we do have three candidates … that are extraordinary.” Of Calgary he said, “Calgary is a very big city, Canada is a very developed country, and they can do that any day of the week. There is no problem there.” Of Italy he said, “No doubt they can do the Games.” Of Sweden he said, “Again, it’s a very attractive concept.”

“Any of the three would be a good, trustworthy partner for us. Legacy, guaranteed everywhere. Legacy, I repeat, guaranteed,” Samaranch said. “Nothing that would come out of ’26 would make us feel ashamed in ’46.”

Opinion | Bob Hepburn: Why Toronto should bid for the 2024 Olympics

Experts question Calgary BidCo’s claims on economic benefits of Olympics

Very comforting. Toronto has successfully dodged this kind of question, because bids are hard, and getting trickier. The IOC had real trouble in 2022, which went to Beijing because the other option was Kazakhstan, which would have been the modern wagon-and-yak Olympics. Democracies dropped out of winter bidding because people have realized the Olympic Games cost a lot of money and leave you with exotic infrastructure investments whose usefulness expires with the Games. The last three Games — in Sochi, Russia, Rio de Janeiro, and Pyeongchang, South Korea — all left expensive and unwanted leftover behind.

But this time, democracies are back! Well, sort of. After every glowing review of a candidate, Samaranch would sigh and say, “politics.” In Sweden they are still sorting out the recent elections, but to this point there has been almost no government support for the bid. In Italy, it was supposed to be a three-city deal, and then Turin exited, so they are working with a plan that was literally reworked last month.

And Calgary will hold that Nov. 13 plebiscite with no vocal support from the mayor, the premier or the federal government. Still, Canada may be the best bet. Robert Livingstone, the Toronto-based journalist for GamesBids.com, predicted this was how the bidding would come out a year ago, and thinks Calgary has the best chance.

“I think the IOC really wants Europe, if available, with priority on Sweden,” he says. “Calgary wins if it’s the only city left in the race. Which could well happen, if the plebiscite goes ‘yes.’ ”

So will it? The IOC showed a very simple video that extolled the all-too-neat economics of the new Olympics, claiming it will be profitable and clean and will make your children want to exercise. Samaranch said “it’s our job to go out and make people understand that the inspiration, the good things the Olympic Games bring to a community, come with no significant financial risks to that community.”

No significant financial risks! None! It felt like he was selling insurance.

And as the IOC was extolling the new, cheaper, less monolithic New Norm process to keep the cost and negative impact of bidding down, a report from Japan’s board of audit said the Tokyo 2020 bid will cost up to $25 billion (U.S.), up from $7.3 billion (U.S.) in 2013.

The IOC contested this, saying some of the items put under the Olympic umbrella shouldn’t be counted. But as The Associated Press reported, some of the items under dispute included “barrier-free facilities for Paralympic athletes, training programs for volunteers, and advertising and tourism plans.” Also, the audit also said the budget did not include, uh, security costs. Or upgrading the existing buildings that will used during the Games. Or running the doping lab. Well, maybe that’s optional, now.

In Calgary, meanwhile, the security budget is two-thirds that of Vancouver 2010, which seems like the tip of an accounting iceberg. So the people of Calgary will have to decide on the same essential question every non-autocratic nation has to answer: How much do you trust the IOC? Experience would tell you, not much, right? Not much.

But Italy is rickety and Sweden ain’t Eden, and the IOC is sweet-talking promises like never before. Canada might be needed to save the Olympics. Unless the good people of Calgary decide that for all the promises, it’s not worth saving at all.

          World's Most Powerful Passport Revealed As Countries' Global Rankings Shift      Cache   Translate Page      
Japan passport holders will find it easier than ever to travel the world, as their travel documents have just moved up in the global Henley Passport Index to take the top spot.

The Henley Passport Index is a ranking of all of the passports in the world based on the number of countries their holders can travel to visa-free.

Until now Japan had been sharing joint first place with Singapore, which gained visa-free access to Uzbekistan earlier this year bringing its total to 189 countries.

However, earlier this month Japan gained visa-free access to Myanmar bringing its total to 190 - once again taking it to the top spot.


It's still a milestone for both Japan and Singapore, as 2018 is the first year in the index's 13-year history that either of them has had the most powerful passport in the world.
Both are way ahead of the UK and US which share fifth place with Portugal, the Netherlands, Austria and Luxembourg - but it's worth noting that the top four spots are shared by 10 countries.

Experts had previously revealed that the UK ranking is unlikely to increase until there is certainty regarding Brexit.

          CEOs, athletes, and celebs are paying $10,000 for this 6-hour physical exam that includes a massage and 2 meals in an ultra-luxurious, spa-like NYC facility      Cache   Translate Page

You probably don't consider your yearly physical exam a luxurious, and relaxing "white glove" experience, but a New York City medical center promises just that.

The Elitra Health Manhattan Center for Life and Longevity offers a thorough, "five-star" physical examination in a luxurious, spa-like facility in downtown Manhattan — and it costs $10,000. The six-hour checkup at the 15,000 square foot health center caters to C-level executives, athletes, and celebrities. It's designed for "the most discerning men and women" who want the highest-quality private experience, according to a representative for the clinic.

"Most of our clients are high net worth and high earners who want more from an exam, more time with specialists and a clinical team, and an overall 5-star customer experience," Ari Cukier, chief operating officer at Elitra Health, told Business Insider.

Many of Elitra's patients are senior executives, small business owners, and high net worth international patients from China, Russia, Kazakhstan, and other countries, he said. Athletes and celebrities are also among their clients, including former NFL player Boomer Esiason, who talked about his Elitra exam in an interview.

"You end up meeting with about 10 different people, from a nutritionist to a heart specialist, [you get] an echocardiogram," Esiason said. "You do all these different things and tests. It was a long time, but it didn't feel like a long time because the place is first class."

The personalized exam takes between five and six hours and is designed to uncover any underlying health issues. It includes extensive screenings, advanced blood work, onsite cardiac imaging and calcium scoring, full-body scans for cancer and aneurysms, a nutritional analysis and fitness assessment, and more. Breakfast and lunch are included, and the exam wraps up with a 20-minute massage in a quiet room.

There's also a women's and a men's lounge where patients can relax.

"Most patients comment that it is more like a hotel [or] spa than a medical center and that they have never experienced anything medical like this," Cukier said.

What makes Elitra unique, according to Cukier, is that all services are completed at one location on the same day. Patients also get their results on the same day so they can sit down with a doctor and ask any questions they have.

Elitra's doctors only see two to three patients per day, which almost every patient takes advantage of by sitting with the doctor for at least two hours, according to Cukier. Elitra has an alliance with Mount Sinai Hospital, where they can coordinate priority scheduling and access to top specialists.

The health center also partners with corporate clients in industries that include law, banking, finance, accounting, consulting, and energy, Cukier said.

"Corporations that work with us with typically cover this for their highest level employees — C-suite and/or managing director, or partners," he said.

Their patient population is split 60/40 between individuals who book with Elitra directly (60%) and senior executives whose companies pay for the program (40%), according to Cukier.

The exam is not covered by traditional health plans, but payment can be made via FSA or HSA plans and Elitra accepts the Armada plan.

Book safes are an age old way to stash one’s treasures–the key to a safe, a private document, a flask, cash, jewelry and of course… secret love letters. And you can use them while traveling to hide your ipod, back up cash, or other valuables from would-be thieves. And of course if you end up wrongfully imprisoned, they work as an excellent place to stash a rock hammer for tunneling your way to freedom. Not only are book safes fun to possess, they also make a cool, unique gift.

First some considerations when looking for a book safe. The whole point is to conceal something from prying eyes, so be careful what book safe you choose. You don’t want it to stand out in your book case. If this is for yourself, choose a book that will fit in on your shelf. If you’ve got a shelf full of new mystery paperbacks, a large vintage medical textbook will look suspicious and out of place. Additionally, consider picking a book that people aren’t likely to pull off your shelf out of curiosity. Think “The Economic History of Kazakhstan” instead of “The Secrets of Better Sex”. But if you’re giving the book safe as a gift, choose a volume that suits the personality and interests of the intended recipient. For Whom the Bell Tolls for Dad; Nancy Drew for little sis.

Now about my book safes, what makes them different?
Usually I use upcycled used books, not new. This allows the wear and tear of a book add to the charm of your safe while lending a bit of charm to your collection. Besides, cutting up a new, unread book defeats the original purpose of that literary masterpiece. Think of it as a second life for a book that has been enjoyed.
Unlike many home crafted book safes, I have added a few construction design upgrades of my own. Learning from my woodworking experience I experimented and came up with the following improvements. (Technically, a book is “wood” so this is not too much of a departure from what I usually craft.
#1 – These safes have been crafted with “natural” page edges. Meaning that I do not just coat the outer, exposed page edges with a layer of glue. My safes actually appear to be an unaltered book when closed. You can actually thumb the pages and they separate along the edge, just like a regular book.
#2 – Internal reinforcements. In larger, thicker books, I have found a way to insert metal pins that keep the book safe square and ridged. These metal pins are totally concealed. Some other book safes tend to “droop” since so much of the internal page material removed to create the cavity.

Note: Any props in the pictures are NOT INCLUDED. Electronics, cash, jewelry and other items are used to demonstrate scale of the book and compartment.

Cover - Hardback, Bonded Leather Bound.

Book safes are an age old way to stash one’s treasures–the key to a safe, a private document, a flask, cash, jewelry and of course… secret love letters. And you can use them while traveling to hide your ipod, back up cash, or other valuables from would-be thieves. And of course if you end up wrongfully imprisoned, they work as an excellent place to stash a rock hammer for tunneling your way to freedom. Not only are book safes fun to possess, they also make a cool, unique gift.

First some considerations when looking for a book safe. The whole point is to conceal something from prying eyes, so be careful what book safe you choose. You don’t want it to stand out in your book case. If this is for yourself, choose a book that will fit in on your shelf. If you’ve got a shelf full of new mystery paperbacks, a large vintage medical textbook will look suspicious and out of place. Additionally, consider picking a book that people aren’t likely to pull off your shelf out of curiosity. Think “The Economic History of Kazakhstan” instead of “The Secrets of Better Sex”. But if you’re giving the book safe as a gift, choose a volume that suits the personality and interests of the intended recipient. For Whom the Bell Tolls for Dad; Nancy Drew for little sis.

Now about my book safes, what makes them different?
Usually I only use upcycled used books, not new. This allows the wear and tear of a book add to the charm of your safe while lending a bit of charm to your collection. Besides, cutting up a new, unread book defeats the original purpose of that literary masterpiece. Think of it as a second life for a book that has been enjoyed.
Unlike many home crafted book safes, I have added a few construction design upgrades of my own. Learning from my woodworking experience I experimented and came up with the following improvements. (Technically, a book is “wood” so this is not too much of a departure from what I usually craft.
#1 – These safes have been crafted with “natural” page edges. Meaning that I do not just coat the outer, exposed page edges with a layer of glue. My safes actually appear to be an unaltered book when closed. You can actually thumb the pages and they separate along the edge, just like a regular book.
#2 – Internal reinforcements. In larger, thicker books, I have found a way to insert metal pins that keep the book safe square and ridged. These metal pins are totally concealed. Some other book safes tend to “droop” since so much of the internal page material removed to create the cavity.

          China okays massive re-education camps for Muslim minorities after denying the camps exist      Cache   Translate Page      

Uyghur men gather for a holiday meal during the Corban Festival on September 13, 2016 in Turpan County, in the far western Xinjiang province, China.

  • Regional authorities in China revised a local law to encourage the existence of "re-education centers" for its persecuted Uighur ethnic minority.
  • The new law promulgated by the government in Xinjiang, western China, formally encouraged officials to set up "re-education institutions ... to carry out the educational transformation of those affected by extremism."
  • Beijing previously denied that such centers even existed, claiming that it only set up vocational training centers to help those affected by religious extremism.
  • Human Rights Watch said that "without due process," those centers "remain arbitrary and abusive, and no tweaks in national or regional rules can change that."

Chinese regional authorities have legally formalized the existence of re-education centers for the country's persecuted Muslim Uighur ethnic minority after Beijing denied that such camps existed.

Officials in Xinjiang, the western Chinese region where 8 million Uighurs live, revised a local law to encourage "re-education institutions" to help those "affected by extremism."

The new law, which was published on Tuesday, stated: "Officials at or above the county level may set up vocational education and training centers, and other re-education institutions and management departments, to carry out the educational transformation of those affected by extremism."

Beijing justifies its surveillance and crackdown on Uighurs as a measure to counter terrorism and religious extremism. It has also repeatedly insisted that people in Xinjiang — known to Uighurs as East Turkestan — lived in harmony and enjoy religious freedom.

China previously denied that such camps existed. Shortly after a United Nations panel said it had received credible reports that 1 million Uighurs were held in internment camps, senior Communist Party official Hu Lianhe claimed that there are "no such things as re-education centers," but had detained people it considers extremists.

Earlier this month Radio Free Asia this week quoted unnamed regional authorities as saying they had to transfer inmates out of Xinjiang to other regions across China because, one said, "we are experiencing an overflow of inmates."

Is this law legitimate?

Rights activists claim that Xinjiang's local government have no right to legalize re-education camps because the process itself is still "arbitrary and abusive."

Maya Wang, the senior researcher on China at Human Rights Watch, said in a statement sent to Business Insider:

“Xinjiang's regional government is not empowered under China's constitution to legalize detention in the political education centers where a million Turkic Muslims are being held.

"Without due process, Xinjiang's political education centers remain arbitrary and abusive, and no tweaks in national or regional rules can change that."

Uighurs who have been inside detention and re-education camps have described witnessing and experiencing physical and psychological torture, including being shackled to a chair and beaten up, deprived of sleep, and forced to sing about President Xi Jinping to get food.

China has also justified its method of "training#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000" religious extremists as "the necessary way to deal with Islamic or religious extremism."

Last month a spokesman for China's state council information office, Li Xiaojun, said that detaining Uighurs in such centers was "not mistreatment," but "to establish professional training centers, educational centers."

"If you do not say it's the best way, maybe it's the necessary way to deal with Islamic or religious extremism," Li said, according to Reuters. "Because the West has failed in doing so, in dealing with religious Islamic extremism."

"Look at Belgium, look at Paris, look at some other European countries," he added, referring to terrorist attacks in Brussels and Paris carried out by Islamic extremists in 2015 and 2016. "You have failed."

          Global Sparkling Masters 2018: The results      Cache   Translate Page      

Over a year, the drinks business hosts many Global Masters competitions, inviting producers to pit their wines against the world’s best before a panel of expert judges.

About the competition

The Sparkling Masters is a competition created and run by the drinks business, and is an extension of its successful Masters series for grape varieties such as Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, as well as regions such as Rioja and Chianti. The competition is exclusively for sparkling wine and the entries were judged by a selection of highly experienced tasters using Schott Zwiesel Cru Classic glasses supplied by Wine Sorted. The top sparklers were awarded Gold, Silver or Bronze medals according to their result, and those that stood out as being outstanding received the ultimate accolade – the title of Sparkling Master. The sparklers were tasted over the course of a single day on 12 July at Les 110 de Taillevent in London’s Marylebone.
Judged blind, the Global Masters is unique in that it presents wines without any indication of their origin, stripping away the potential for prejudice, and allowing a wine to be judged on its price and style alone. While we also host a Global Prosecco and Global Champagne Masters, the Sparkling Masters is open to fizz of any style or origin. It means that a vintage Champagne could be judged alongside a sparkling wine from Hungary, or, indeed, a Prosecco, Cava or Lambrusco; wines that would ordinarily remain segregated, competing in their own category, but rarely against each other. By placing the wines on a level playing field, removing any prestige that may be associated with their origin, all wines are afforded the chance to shine, helping to break down assumptions, aid consumer choice and highlight quality at all price points. To be considered the best, you must compete with the best. For our team of expert judges, made up of MWs, senior buyers and sommeliers, it made for a fascinating review of what has become an incredibly fast-paced and evolving category. “Almost nothing is as invigorating as a day judging sparkling wines, whether Champagne, Prosecco and other traditional or tank method wines from around the globe,” enthuses Patricia Stefanowicz MW. “While there were excellent wines in all of the categories, the white sparkling wines seemed to have somewhat more consistency than the rosés. And the very best white sparkling wines shone with star-bright brilliance, lovely definition and elegance, whether brut, medium-dry, medium-sweet or sweet.” This year’s Global Sparkling Masters saw more than 150 wines judged over the course of one day. Pleasingly, the results demonstrated a clear increase in quality in all price points and styles, with medals broadly distributed to traditional-method brut sparklers, primarily made from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, and cheaper tank-method Prosecco and Prosecco alternatives, to Lambrusco, Asti and other sweet sparkling wines. Overall, the competition yielded an impressive three Masters – the highest possible accolade – 19 Golds, 57 Silvers and 46 Bronze medals. But which regions shone the brightest, and who are the producers behind them?

Champagne

Champagne, when represented, lived up to its reputation at all price points. Perrier-Jouët took home Gold for its Blanc de Blancs (£50+), Grand Brut (£30-£50) and Belle Epoque 2011 (£50+). However, it was its NV Brut Blason Rosé Champagne (£30-£50) that really impressed, receiving the competition’s first Master. Noting the rising quality of rosé Champagne in general, judge Michael Edwards said this fizz was demonstrative of the “dramatically improved quality of the red wine used for rosé making” in the region. Stefanowicz also acknowledged that rosé sparkling wine in general had “improved immeasurably in the last decade”, but nevertheless felt that it was the most inconsistent segment of wines in the competition. Offering some food for thought, she said: “There were still a few too many where the sugar-acid flavour balance was not quite poised. Admittedly, most rosé wines are not designed with much autolysis in mind, so they rarely have the added dimension to balance out the sweetness.” Elsewhere Champagne Mumm’s Grand Cordon picked up a Gold, as did Champagne Leclerc Briant for its Brut Reserve (£50+), while its Premier Cru Extra Brut (£50+) was awarded a Silver. This house was also responsible for one of the most intriguing wines of the day, Abyss (£50+) – a Brut Champagne aged at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean for one year – which won a Silver. One of the best-value Champagnes of the competition was Lidl’s Comte de Senneval Champagne Brut (£10-£15), which won a Silver, proving that quality can be found at the lower end of the price scale. “I love the fact that Champagne is still strong and holds the quality bar very high, but there were plenty of other options, like English or Spanish fizz,” said sommelier and judge Andrea Briccarello. “In terms of quality and price, the best category was the £10-15 segment, with some of the more premium wines not delivering enough for the money. I was also pleasantly surprised by the own-brand wines from the likes of Lidl, which takes its wine selection very seriously.” High quality Crémant offered further high points, bringing forth high quality, medal-winning wines at the £10-£15 mark, reminding us of the category’s good value. Bouvet Ladubay picked up a Gold for its Crémant de Loire Brut Blanc, along with Reverchon’s Riesling Crémant Brut (£20-£30) from Hessen in Germany. Domaine Paul Mas scooped a Silver for its Côte Mas Crémant de Limoux Brut, along with Patriarche for its Crémant de Bourgogne Rosé and Blanc expressions. On par with the Champagnes in terms of price, many of the English sparkling wines were well received, with Wiston Estate receiving a Gold for its Blanc de Noirs and Cuvée Brut (£30-£50), while Hattingley Valley picked up a Silver for its Classic Reserve (£30-£50). “English sparklings, a small group, were very good,” noted Stefanowicz, “an indication that England should be considered as an alternative to our neighbours across the Channel.” Of all the regions represented in this year’s competition, Cava has seen the biggest upheaval in the past year. In 2017, DO Cava launched the Cava de Paraje Calificado classification, which is open to all Cava producers. However, just nine cellars have reached the required standards to achieve the new quality seal – the equivalent of just 300,000 bottles in a region that produces 245 million annually. So it was gratifying to have one such wine in our line-up, which lived up to the certification’s high quality standards. Barcelona’s Gran Torelló Cava de Paraje Calificado received a Gold – a shining example of the DO’s ongoing efforts to drive quality upwards while also better highlighting the region’s best wines. From the New World, Roederer Estate flew the flag for California, winning a Gold for its NV Quartet and NV Quartet Rosé (£20-£30), both from the Anderson Valley. Chile performed particularly strongly at the lower end of the price spectrum, with Maycas del Limarí winning a Silver for its Espace Brut (£10-£15) from the Limarí Valley, while Viña Maipo scored a Silver for its Vitral Sparkling (£10-£15) from the Central Valley. “Finding good-value wines in the under-£10 and £10-£15 brackets was superb,” noted Stefanowicz. “The traditional-method wines at £10-£15, whether Crémant from the Loire or Bourgogne, or well made Cava, also provide exceptional value for money, with fresh bread or gentle buttered toast autolysis accenting fruit. Above £20, the wines seemed to have more consistency in terms of depth and complexity. And the wines at higher prices (£30+) were beautifully cut diamonds, serious wines with layers of aromas and flavours and lovely textured mousse across the palate.”

Italy

The most successful region, and the most dominant of this year’s competition in terms of volume, was Italy, which achieved medals in all styles and price points, and was responsible for two Masters. In a major coup for sweet sparklers, specifically Asti, Giulio Cocchi’s Spumanti Asti DOCG (£10-£15) from Piedmont received a Master, making it one of the best-value wines of the competition. Italy’s Scavi & Ray also picked up a Gold for its Moscato (£10-£15) from Emilia-Romagna, while its Ice Prestige from the Veneto, giving credibility to the sparkling over ice trend, was awarded a Silver. Santero Wine’s Asti Degli Angeli DOCG Santero, meanwhile, picked up a Silver, and at the wallet-friendly under-£10 price point. At the opposite end of the sugar scale, Cantine Monfort’s Riserva Brut (£30-£50) from Trentino-Alto Adige, made from 80% Chardonnay and Pinot Nero, took home the competition’s third and final Master, topping a clutch of high-performing wines from Trentodoc in the far north of Italy, known for its traditional method fizz made using Champagne grapes. Producers Letari, Endrizzi and Maso Poli all picked up Silver medals for wines from Trentino Alto-Adige, all of which fell within the £20-£30 segment. Very fine wine “There were some serious wines from elsewhere in Italy: Trentodoc produced one very fine wine, and the wines from Alto-Adige had subtlety yet concentration,” says Stefanowicz. Going after the same market as Trentodoc, the few examples of Franciacorta that were judged, also known for its traditional method fizz, scored highly. Ca’ d’Or’s Franciacorta DOCG Saten (£30-£50) won a Gold, while Barone Pizzini’s Franciacorta Rosé (£30-£50) was deemed “exceptional” by Edwards. Prosecco, while reliable at lower price points, failed to hit the high notes, with Massotina the stand-out performer in this category. Its Le Rive di Ogliano Extra Dry DOCG Prosecco (£20-30) was the only example to gain a Gold, along with a clutch of Silvers. Elsewhere, Fontanafredda scooped a Gold for its Vigna Gatinara Alta Langhe DOCG (£20-30), from Piedmont, while Cleto Chiarli gained a Gold for its Lambrusco Grasparossa di Castelvetro DOC, from Emilia-Romagna, which, at under £10, was one of just two wines of the whole competition to win a Gold at this price point (the other being from Hungary). Outliers While it’s always good to see traditional regions raising the bar and maintaining quality, one of the most rewarding aspects of the Global Masters is the discovery of an underdog – a country or region that comes out fighting against the big players, and shows real promise of longevity and progress. Even more gratifying is when unknown or indigenous varieties triumph. For this competition that country was Hungary. Törley’s sweet Hungaria Irsai Olivér Doux, made from the Hungarian grape variety Irsai Olivér, was the second wine to win a Gold in the under-£10 category. Törley was also rewarded with a Silver for its 100% Pinot Noir Orfeum Rosé Sec, 100% Pinot Noir François President Brut 2014, and its Törley Excellence Sarga Muskotaly Doux, made from the Hungarian Muscat Lunel grape, as well as its Hungaria Grand Cuvée Brut, made from a blend of Grüner Veltliner, Riesling and Királyleányka. All of these wines are priced at under £10, demonstrating a superb quality-to-price ratio from a somewhat unlikely source. Arba Wine, based in the Almaty region of Kazakhstan, was also a wildcard entry that prevailed over many of its more high-profile competitors, winning a Silver in the over-12g/l sparkling rosé category for its Rossa Assa Valley 2014 Pinot Noir. Range of styles The Sparkling Masters is always a hugely diverse but rewarding competition. This is reflected by the fact that our three Masters neatly represent a broad sweep of sparkling styles, from a dry Italian Brut and rosé Champagne to a sweet Asti DOCG. As judge Marcel Orford-Williams, wine buyer for The Wine Society, reminds us: “The choice facing the consumer is positively bewildering. Even better is the variety of tastes and styles on offer. Champagne has been the dominant force in sparkling wine for generations, but it was not always the case. Limoux was making sparkling wines well before Champagne. And if I am right, there was a time when Saint Peray was more sought after than Champagne. This simply goes to show that despite Champagne’s position, diversity has always been key to the sparkling wine category, and that is even more true today.” Champagne might still be the benchmark, but it comes at a price. Other regions are continuing to prove that they can achieve the complexity and quality of Champagne, but at a much lower price, and in a range of styles. With rising demand for fizz driving global wine sales, and the industry working from a smaller-than-average 2017 harvest, credible producers of quality sparkling wine, whatever their source, will be in high demand.

Haedar menyampaikan bahwa pada dasarnya agama tidak selalu menentang globalisasi. Islam khususnya, sejak awal berembangnya telah mensyiarkan dari dunia tanpa batas.

“Islam secara konsisten menyerukan pesan universal yang tidak terbatas suku tertentu dan etnis, geografi dan daerah. Islam telah menyerukan persaudaraan universal dan kerja sama antara orang-orang dari elemen penting dunia,” tutur Haedar.

Selain memberikan dampak positif, Haedar juga mengatakan bahwa globalisasi juga dapat memberikan dampak yang negatif. Dan dalam hal ini peran agama Islam sangat dibutuhkan dalam memerangi dampak negatif globalisasi, seperti yang tertuang dalam surah al-Maidah ayat 2 dan surah al-A’raf ayat 56.

“Dalam hal ini Islam, harus memposisikan diri dalam proses yang tak terelakkan globalisasi. Agama harus tetap sebagai sumber dorongan untuk
