High time to say ‘no’ to fascism, racism, disparity

DF Editor´s Desk

The Turku Court of Appeal on September 28 upheld a ban imposed by a lower court on Suomen Vastarintaliike (Finnish Resistance Movement), the Finnish chapter of the neo-Nazi group Nordic Resistance Movement (PVL).

We welcome this historic verdict which will not only dissuade the fascist or extremist radical forces to be formed and operate in this country but also have a long-term positive impact on the social wellbeing. When we examine the background and activities of Suomen Vastarintaliike, we don’t find them to go with the Finnish values, culture, and norms. The Finns are highly acclaimed as a peaceful and peace-loving nation across the globe. The appeal court’s ruling once again proves that Finland in no way will tolerate or allow any fascist, racist or indiscriminating activity to go on in the society.

The Nordic Resistance Movement was founded in Sweden in 1996 and branched out to the rest of the Nordic countries, i.e., Finland, Norway, Iceland, and Denmark.

The group triggered off a storm of debate, discussion, and condemnation in September 2016 following the death of a man being assaulted during a neo-Nazi rally at the Helsinki Central Railway Station. People from all professions and social strata voiced strong protests against the incident. On 24 September 2016, more than 15,000 people gathered in Helsinki and condemned racism and violence.

In October 2017, a Finnish member of the organisation was sentenced to two years of imprisonment for his involvement in the incident of assault that took place on September 2016.

And in November 2017, the Pirkanmaa District Court banned the activities of the Nordic Resistance Movement (PVL) as well as its regional chapters and the PVL-linked Pohjoinen Perinne or Nordic Tradition group. The PVL appealed against the ruling but the Turku Court of Appeal overruled the appeal. The appeal court’s decision in effect makes it illegal for the Nordic Resistance Movement to mobilise, demonstrate or propagandise in Finland.

As we said, the ban on the PVL also spells wide-scale positive consequences for the Finnish society, including encouragement to progressive forces as well as the people in general to continue to work for instituting human rights and equal rights, as well as protecting the interests of minority groups including the immigrants.

Political ideology and strategy also have a vital role to play in routing racism, fascism, and disparity from all sectors of the society. The appeal court’s verdict is very important at this time, when far-right political groups have emerged as vital political actors in many a European country in the recent past. We have seen the advancement of the rightwing populist party, Alternative für Deutschland (AfD), in Germany, the populist Five Star Movement in Italy, and, finally, the anti-immigration Sweden Democrats (SD) in Sweden.

The timing of the verdict is also significant as Finland is now preparing to hold the next parliamentary elections in April 2019. The Finns should consider the issue seriously before casting their votes so that parties with an attitude or advocating an ideology of disparity, racism or fascism do not get a chance to influence the country’s politics and policy-making. To support a fanatic force will but push the country backwards. Only people have the power to decide the outcome through their choice made in the national elections.

This is high time for the Finns to say no to all negative forces and ideologies and to safeguard their country’s image as a land of equal rights, peace, and wellbeing.

          Police say string of car fires unrelated to each other - or Sweden      Cache   Translate Page      

The five cars apparently set ablaze in Espoo and Helsinki over the weekend are not likely related to each other, according to local police.

Five automobiles were found burning in the Espoo neighbourhood of Matinkylä early Sunday morning, which western Uusimaa police are investigating as aggravated vandalism.

The cars in Matinkylä were separated by a few hundred metres. The local emergency centre received an alert about the incident around 4:00 am on Sunday.

Overnight Sunday more cars were found burning in Vantaa and Helsinki. The car fire in Vantaa, appeared to be caused by a technical fault in the vehicle, which spread to cars parked next to it, according to local rescue officials.

However, Sunday night’s car fire in Tattarisuo, a north-eastern neighbourhood of Helsinki, is suspected to have been intentionally set, according to Helsinki police investigator Anne Hietala.

“Right now the case is being investigated as vandalism and it appears that fire was deliberately set,” Hietala said, saying that there was no more information about the incident.

Police suggest copycats may be responsible

Western Uusimaa police head investigator Teemu Värtinen said that at this stage in the probe there is nothing to indicate that the fires were set by the same individual, saying that media reports about the fires may have prompted others to carry out the crimes.

“These cases often happen in clusters, because news coverage fuels more of them,” Värtinen said.

Police officials also dismissed suspicions that the recent series of car fires in southern Finland were related in some way to similar incidents in Sweden, saying that the nature and motives behind the car fires in Sweden were different.

Police said that there are no suspects in the Espoo car fires at this stage of the investigation.

          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}

          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.


          Free League and Järnringen Become One      Cache   Translate Page      

Sweden's two biggest RPG makers are joining forces. The folks at Free League Publishing and Jarnringen are becoming one company. This means taht games like Symbaroum, Mutant: Year Zero, and Tales From the Loop will all be made by one company. Considering the acclaim those titles have gotten, I expect big things from them going forward.

From the announcement:

Free League Publishing and Team Järnringen, two of Sweden's leading publishers of tabletop roleplaying games on the international market, will become one. The merger of these publishers of acclaimed RPGs such as Tales from the Loop, Symbaroum and Mutant: Year Zero, is underway. The combined company, to be named Free League Publishing, is planning several major game launches in the year to come.

"We're very happy that the merger is finally happening," says Free League co-founder Tomas Härenstam. "We have a long history with Järnringen, great respect for their work, and we share similar philosophies on game design. Together we will be stronger, better, and have a greater international reach. And we'll have even more fun at work."

The two teams are already working together, with former Järnringen members involved in current Free League projects, and vice versa. To the combined company, Järnringen brings the acclaimed fantasy RPG Symbaroum, which will now become part of Free League's line-up of award-winning games such as Mutant: Year Zero, Coriolis - The Third Horizon, and Tales from the Loop, as well as the upcoming RPG Forbidden Lands and Crusader Kings - The Board Game.

Free League was initially created ten years ago, as a group of freelancers writing supplements for earlier (Swedish) versions of Mutant and Coriolis, published by a previous incarnation of Järnringen. The fact that these two game franchises are still part of the Free League RPG lineup today is appreciated by the members of Team Järnringen.

"There are many benefits of this merger," say's Järnringen co-founder Mattias Johnsson Haake. "But of course, the idea of working on Mutant and Coriolis again is especially appealing. Coriolis was created by us, and is in a way like a child we never got to see grow up. Mutant also has a special place in our hearts."

The joint company will be named Free League Publishing, a decision made in full agreement between both companies. Free League Publishing has had a longer presence on the international market and a bigger reach among both gamers and sales partners. In addition, the name Free League is taken from a faction in the Coriolis RPG.

Fans and gamers of Free League and Järnringen games should not experience any immediate impact from this merger. All existing game lines will continue as planned. In addition, a number of new game projects are being planned for 2019. More information on these will be revealed at a later date.

cover image"The Bronze Frog is a violent, fast-paced, global thriller with plot, characters, and action shaped by the author's Navy, intelligence, foreign operations, and White House expertise. The reader joins Commander Linc Walker, a sharp, combat-seasoned Navy SEAL on a clandestine mission against the People's Republic of China, who is betrayed in this mission by leaders in The White House, and who vows revenge. Walker and SEAL Chief Gunner's Mate John Hall move out from the nuclear attack submarine USS Burlington after she punches up through the ice at the North Pole, to reconnoiter a secret Chinese installation camouflaged in the polar white. There is a firefight. Walker lashes his wounded partner to their ice buggy and speeds back to the submarine recovery point. The Burlington misses the scheduled rendezvous by 12 hours. Hall dies on the ice. A U.S.-Chinese political crisis has erupted. Once aboard, Walker - furious with the missed rendezvous and Hall's unnecessary death, knocks out the submarine skipper. Forced to retire, Walker learns that the President's National Security Adviser, a fellow Stanford graduate, together with the National Security Council's China expert, gave the orders blocking the submarine's scheduled recovery of the two SEALs. They alone are responsible for Hall's death - traitors in his eyes. They will pay with their lives; he maps and moves out on his plan of revenge. In Sweden's Grand Hotel, Walker, traveling under false identity, connects with a Russian Army surgeon expert in prostheses, who he has contracted through the black market to make exact castings of his head, right hand, and foot. The surgeon works deftly, delivers the castings the following evening to Walker in his cabin aboard the trans-sea ferry Baltic Star, in port in Stockholm. Walker kills him and, with the ship underway, dumps his weighted body into the Baltic enroute to Helsinki. His path crosses Michele Casidy's in one of the ship's all-night roaring bars. In their night in his cabin, he learns that she, too, has been viciously betrayed by a leader she trusted, as she climbs the academic ranks at Harvard University. Walker's blood boils. He will get the information he needs to act, and her department head will pay with his life. The novel moves swiftly from Helsinki, to Cambridge and Harvard, then to Bucharest, where the department head is addressing a NATO conference, then on to Moscow, Stockholm and Washington, with Walker drawing on his special forces skills, killing, repeatedly changing identities, leaving law enforcement on both sides of the Atlantic grappling with the unsolved murders.

And, we caught up with an 8-year-old girl who found an ancient sword while she was swimming in a lake in Sweden.

          UBA Foundation and Gavi Launch a New Partnership for Africa      Cache   Translate Page      


The UBA Foundation and Gavi will leverage the United Bank for Africa’s network and expertise to invest in Africa’s health system, starting with Nigeria.


Dr Seth Berkley, CEO of Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance and Mr. Kennedy Uzoka, UBA Group CEO and Chairman of the UBA Foundation as they announce the partnership agreement between the two institutions towards strengthening health systems and raise awareness of immunisation across Africa, starting in 2018 with Nigeria

New York, 28 September 2018 - Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance and the UBA Foundation, the Corporate Social Responsibility arm of the United Bank for Africa Group, have joined together to strengthen health systems and raise awareness of immunisation across Africa, starting in 2018 with Nigeria.

“We are delighted to work with the UBA Foundation to help protect children across Nigeria against some of the world’s deadliest diseases,” said Dr Seth Berkley, CEO of Gavi the Vaccine Alliance. “Strong, sustainable health systems are key to ensuring no child misses out on lifesaving vaccines which is why this partnership will make a real difference, reducing child mortality and helping to meet the Sustainable Development Goals in 2030."

The partnership with the UBA Foundation aims to raise US$ 1.5 million over the next two years by leveraging UBA’s network of partners to support Gavi’s immunisation programmes in Nigeria. The UBA Foundation will also advocate for immunisation in Nigeria, which has one of the lowest vaccine coverage rates in the world.

“The United Bank for Africa and the UBA Foundation have been impacting lives positively in Nigeria and across the African continent for several decades, and this is another opportunity to make a difference in the lives of millions of Africans," said Kennedy Uzoka, UBA Group CEO and Chairman of the UBA Foundation. “We are proud of the partnership with Gavi which will run until the end of 2020, with both institutions focused on the overall aim to provide innovative solutions that can increase the capacity of healthcare systems in Nigeria and across Africa."

In the last five years over 14 million children in Nigeria have been vaccinated against some of the world’s deadliest diseases with support from Gavi. If Nigeria meets its targets for vaccine coverage, it will be able to prevent at least one million deaths by 2028.

"However, Nigeria needs to invest more domestic resources in health and immunisation,” said Dr Berkley. ”The private sector can be a crucial partner to help leverage expertise and provide new solutions to ensure children across Nigeria have the opportunity to lead long, healthy lives.”


ABOUT UBA FOUNDATION


United Bank for Africa (UBA), Africa’s global bank, is committed to being a socially responsible company and role model for all businesses in Africa. UBA recognises the need for a social contract between the bank, the community and its people. To this end, UBA became one of the first banks in Africa to institute a Foundation, the UBA Foundation. UBA Foundation has been impacting lives positively on the African continent for over a decade.

          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.

          The Hobo Guide to Wild Camping in Europe      Cache   Translate Page      

I’m camping in Europe at the moment. Pitching my tent at rest stops, in the mountains and inconspicuously behind bushes on private land. I’m camping because there are some day hikes I can’t bear to leave after only a few hours. I want to wake up in the fog and sleep amongst all the creatures that explore the land at night. I’m also doing it to stretch the little money I flew to Europe with.

Each country has its own laws when it comes to wild camping. Here’s a list, but please do your own research if you’re really concerned.

Wild camping is legal in: Sweden, Albania, Armenia, Belarus, Bosnia, Cyprus, Estonia, Finland, Iceland, Kosovo, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Russia, Slovakia, Turkey, Ukraine, Scotland

Wild camping is a bit of a grey area in: France, Austria, Bulgaria, Czech, Hungary, Moldova, Netherlands, Romania, Serbia, Switzerland

Wild camping is totally illegal in: Italy, Aldorra, Belgium, Croatia, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Luxembourg, Malta, Poland, Portugal, Slovenia, Spain (they’re really complicated), England, Wales

However, if you’re setting up shop just to rest your head for the night, camping is generally permissible. Pitch at dark and leave in the morning and nobody’s going to bat an eyelid, especially if you’re out of sight. How many times do you drive on a highway or pass a mountain and look for a tent? Worst case scenario: plead ignorance. You’re a tourist.

Here are my packing essentials:

1. A tent

If you’re heading over in summer, you can probably get away with a festival tent, especially if you’ve got some cash in the bank to splurge on accommodation when there’s a stormy night. I use a lightweight two-person Vango Bravo 200, because I need something I can carry on my back with the rest of my stuff that can also accommodate a mate, should I meet one on my journey.

If you’re wild camping, especially in places where wild camping is considered illegal or a grey area, maybe invest in something a little more inconspicuous than the blue one I’ve gone for. You can spot that baby from a mile away.

          Tokyo Olympics: Costs Hit Almost $25 Billion — May Go Higher      Cache   Translate Page      
The price tag keeps soaring for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics despite local organizers and the International Olympic Committee saying that spending is being cut.   A report just released by the national government's Board of Audit shows Japan is likely to spend $25 billion to prepare the games, and the final number could go even higher.   This is nearly a four-fold increase over Tokyo's winning bid in 2013, which the report said projected costs of 829 billion yen, or $7.3 billion at the current exchange rate of 113 yen to the dollar.   Tracking Tokyo costs is getting more difficult as work speeds up, deadlines near, and disputes arise about what are — and what are not — Olympic expenses. Complicated accounting also makes it difficult to figure out who pays for what, and who profits.   "It's the most amazing thing that the Olympic games are the only type of megaproject to always exceed their budget," Bent Flyvberg, an authority on Olympic budgeting, said in explaining his research: "The Oxford Olympics Study 2016."   Flyvberg said the study failed to "find even one" Olympics that came in on or below budget.   Tokyo is a case study.   In December, the Tokyo organizing committee said the Olympic budget was 1.35 trillion yen, or about $12 billion.   This consisted of equal contributions of 600 billion yen ($5.3 billion) from the organizing committee and the Tokyo metropolitan government, with another 150 billion yen ($1.3 billion) coming from the national government. But a month later, Tokyo Governor Yuriko Koike said the city needed to chip in an added 810 billion yen ($7.2 billion) "for projects directly and indirectly related to the games." She said this included building barrier-free facilities for Paralympic athletes, training programs for volunteers, and advertising and tourism plans.   This raised the overall costs to 2.16 trillion yen, or about $19.1 billion.   The IOC and local organizers dispute these are Olympic expenses, describing them as "regular administrative costs" that fall "outside the overall games budget."   Flyvberg credited organizers of recent Olympics with trying to control costs, but tight Olympic deadlines make it difficult. Other large building projects can be pushed back a few months. Not the Olympics.   He also said it was inefficient for different cities to keep organizing the games.   "All you can do when problems begin — and problems always begin on projects of this size — is to throw more money at the project," Flyvberg said.   Another Tokyo cost increase popped up a few days ago.   A 178-page report by the Board of Audit said the national government's share of spending had increased to 801 billion yen ($7.1 billion) from the $1.3 billion estimated back in December.   This brings total spending to 2.81 trillion yen, or just under $25 billion, with suggestions it could reach 3 trillion when the games open in just under two years.   The report said "a large amount of spending was expected to continue after 2018 leading up to the event."   The report urged organizers, the Tokyo city government, central government, and local agencies to increase transparency. In a statement Tuesday to The Associated Press, local organizers again disputed what should be called Olympic costs.   Spokesman Masa Takaya said expenditures listed such as "inbound tourism, road constructions, subsidy for creating a hydrogen society, and even improving accuracy of weather forecasts with better satellites," should not be considered Olympic expenses.   The audit report also faulted Tokyo organizers for excluding other expenses from the budget. The report said these came to about 650 billion yen ($5.6 billion) and included things like: repairs to existing buildings; security costs; the cost of running doping facilities.   It said the organizing committee's December budget did "not reflect all the costs related to the operation of the event."   About 80 percent of the $25 billion will be taxpayer money. The rest — about $5.3 billion — comes from the privately funded operating budget. This budget receives $1.7 billion from the IOC with the rest coming from sponsors, merchandising and ticket sales.   Tokyo organizers say they have saved billions in the last several years by using existing venues, holding shorter test events and by making other cuts in construction.   IOC President Thomas Bach said Tuesday the Olympic body had no influence over what audits in Japan defined as games expenses. "We have to live there with the difference that an accountant may introduce something to the Olympic Games where we say this has nothing to do with the Olympic Games." Bach told a news conference at the Youth Olympics in Argentina.   The IOC has also tried to promote frugality, aware that hidden and soaring costs have driven away many possible Olympic bidders — particularly for the Winter Olympics.   Three bidders remain for the 2026 Winter Olympics: Calgary, Canada; Stockholm, Sweden; Milan-Cortina, Italy. Several others dropped out.   Organizers of the recent Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, reported a budget surplus of $55 million this week. Meanwhile, the provincial government is complaining about paying millions for upkeep on empty venues, with the national government unwilling to assume the costs.   There is talk of razing several empty venues.   "Even though people try to bring down costs, it's very difficult," Flyvberg said. "But there is some progress.

One of the more interesting teams headed to Ireland for this weekend’s Euro Cup in Cork is the newest Australian Football entity in Israel, the Tel Aviv Cheetahs. Whilst they are a genuine new team on the world stage, based in a city not known or its connection to the game, in truth, they are a phoenix rising.

The team that runs out in Cork to do battle with the best teams Europe has to offer owes much of its existence to the Peace Team, formed in 2008, and more recently their incarnation as the Jerusalem Peace Lions. But make no mistake - this team from Tel aviv is itsown entity, grown out of its own grit, sweat and determination.

After having performed admirably at the 2017 Euro Cup in Bordeaux, France, where they managed to finish in 11th place overall with an historic win against Sweden, the Lions returned to Israel to a period of change. Wi ...

          AFRICA Crowned J/70 World Champion!      Cache   Translate Page      
J/70 Africa wins J/70 Worlds(Marblehead, MA)- The 2018 edition of the J/70 World Championship, sponsored by WEST MARINE, was hosted by Eastern YC in Marblehead, MA for a fleet of ninety-one teams from around the world. It was the most unprecedented assemblage of world-class talent ever gathered together in a single one-design regatta in history- keelboat or dinghy. Teams traveled thousands of miles, from as far away as Australia, Germany, Mexico, Canada, Italy, Great Britain, Japan, Monaco, Russia, Spain, Norway, Switzerland, Sweden and Turkey. Plus, J/70 competed from all over South America including; Argentina, Brazil, Chile, and Uruguay.

After an eleven-race series that was cut short by a no-wind finale on Saturday, it was local “home-boy” rock-star Juddie Smith that was crowned the 2018 J/70 World Champion with his incredibly capable crew on AFRICA- Lucas Calabrese (main/ tactician), Will Felder and Marc Gauthier. There’s was not an easy win by any stretch of the imagination, considering that they averaged 10.5 pts per race over 10 races counted, never won a race, had only four top 10 finishes in 11 races, and included a tally of 14-11-22-15-13-35 in their scoreline.  In fact, their win was determined by the outcome of the final race on Friday, when their 10th was enough to eke out a 1 pt victory over Bruno Pasquinelli’s STAMPEDE crew (Max Skelley, Eric Doyle, & Nathan Wilmot) that took a 7th and just 3 pts above Jack Franco’s crew on 3 BALL JT (Bill Hardesty, Lior Lavie, & Al Terhune) that took an 8th!!

J70s sailing WorldsHow deep and talented was the fleet? Well, Paul Goodison from the United Kingdom sailed as main/tactics on Vincenzo Onorato’s MASCALZONE LATINO team (Paul is an Olympic Gold Medallist in Lasers and 2x Moth World Champion) that included fellow top pro’s like Flavio Favini from Italy. After the first day, they had two 1sts and a 13th- just one point off the lead. However, from there on end, their “flash-in-the-pan”, near “runaway shopping trolley” went out of control, never garnering much above the mid-thirties and remaining the only boat in the fleet with two bullets!  Nevertheless, that merely earned them an 18th place… 

The same held true for many other deeply-talented teams in the incredibly competitive fleet. Consider the tale of the two famous Wilmot brothers from Australia- Nathan and Jeremy.  One finished second sailing on Bruno Pasquinelli’s STAMPEDE, the other finished 16th sailing on the Troutman’s PIED PIPER.

J70s sailing WorldsThen again, other past J/World Champions and famous team-pairings faired not much better. Tim Healy and John Mollicone’s NEW ENGLAND ROPES USA 2 managed a 9th place (first J/70 Worlds 2014, 4x J/24 World Champs). Glenn Darden and Jonathan McKee’s HOSS were 14th (J/80 World Champ, J/105 NA Champ, and Olympic Gold Medallist). Peter Cunningham and Chris Rast’s POWERPLAY were 17th (Chris was multiple Farr 30 and M24 World Champs). Doug Clark and Geoff Becker’s POLAR were 19th (Geoff is Lighting World Champ).  Joel Ronning and John Kostecki’s CATAPULT settled for 20th (J/70 World Champions and J/24 World Champ). John Brim and Taylor Canfield’s RIMETTE were 22nd (Offshore Storm Trysail Club Champ, 3x Match Racing World Champ, 2x Congressional Cup Champ). And, the list goes on….

For the third year in a row, it was top Italian woman sailor Claudia Rossi on PETITE TERRIBLE that won the top Women’s Skipper Trophy for the Worlds- the Helen Johnstone Memorial Award.

J70s sailing Worlds sunsetThe winners of the Corinthian Division were Luis Bagallo’s MARNATURA from Spain, with crew of Enrique Freire Faria, Gerardo Prego Menor, Alberto Basadre Lopez, and Jorge Lorenzo Roman.  Second was Jim Cunningham’s American crew on LIFTED (Mikee Anderson-Mittering, Jon Ziskind, and Dave Hochart), and third was Aldo Centaro’s PURA JODA from Punta del Este, Uruguay (Bruno Centaro, Marco Centaro, and Mauro Leite).

Some interesting facts on fleet depth for 91 boats total:
  • How many boats had top 3 podium finishes? 21 total (23%), lowest finisher was 62nd
  • How many boats had top 5 finishes?  30 total (33%), lowest finisher was 62nd
  • How many boats had top 10 finishes? 41 total (45%), lowest finisher was 62nd

AMWIN (Credit: Beata Cervin)
"I’d take that b*tch way back, back to ’99 / And f*ck Leo DiCaprio in his prime..."

Sweden's AMWIN tends to tell it like it is.

A soaring pop talent, her bracing honesty is both foul-mouthed and ludicrously entertaining, set to some pointed electronic production.

New single 'DeLorean' is about grabbing hold of the car from Back To The Future and going to find her heart's desire.

It's a hilarious alt-pop hymn, with AMWIN's cheeky lyrics intoning: "I’d take that b*tch way back, back to ’99 / And f*ck Leo DiCaprio in his prime..."

The video attempts to live out this fantasy, with AMWIN explaining:

"When I first came to thinking about doing something visual for 'DeLorean', my mind was still with Leo. I was thinking of just making a whole video in his ’99 honour. That turned into me staying up whole nights, just losing myself in various old pictures and movies. I really just wanted to share some of the things that has inspired me while growing up, things that also inspired the actual song. I really just wanted to make something special for my followers and listeners to go with my favourite song this far."

"It was indeed a true mission to find the DeLorean car for the cover shoot. There are only a few ones in Sweden and they don’t make the car any more. So after a week of full on detective work, some instagram-stalking and sending unresponded DM’s, we finally got in contact with the owner of the only DeLorean car in Stockholm, who was kind enough to let me shoot with it. It was definitely worth the effort."

          10/09 Links Pt2: UNRWA teaches children to blow themselves up; Archaeologists unearth 2000-year-old Hebrew 'Jerusalem' inscription; Anti-Zionist Conspiracy Theories Seek the Mainstream      Cache   Translate Page      
From Ian:

'UNRWA teaches children to blow themselves up'
In Jerusalem, Mayor Nir Barkat presented a plan to remove all UNRWA operations from the capital and begin providing full municipal services to the residents of Shuafat, where UNRWA operates schools and clinics without Israeli permission.

The Jerusalem move follows a decision by the US to cut aid to UNRWA because it is an organization that perpetuates the refugee problem instead of acting to solve the issue.

Arutz Sheva spoke to Bassam Eid, a human rights activist who has been studying UNRWA's schools and institutions for years, bringing the paralyzed Palestinian Arab voices that have been struggling for years under UNRWA, Hamas and the Palestinian Authority.

"I have been saying for years that UNRWA has become part of the problem and not part of the solution," said Eid, "For 70 years, UNRWA has been managing the affairs of the Palestinian refugees and has not managed to reduce the problem or resolve the refugee problem within seventy years. "I am interested in continuing to manage the issue of the Palestinian refugees."

"I support Trump's decision to stop UNRWA funds," Bassem Eid said, adding that "65 percent of UNRWA funds go to salaries and the renting of buildings and offices, salaries of $25,000 a month and luxury vehicles. I want to close this organization so that its employees will be unemployed and become refugees themselves."

Eid also criticized the education provided in UNRWA schools. "I worked in several UNRWA schools in the territories and in Jordan, and children aged 9-10 want to be killed and kill Jews and to release their people. "Who taught you that?" I asked. They said that was what they were learning in schools, and I asked teachers at UNRWA schools in Jordan if children were taught to blow themselves up and be killed. They said "of course. How else will they liberate the land from the Israeli occupation? " UNRWA is aware of this, and the international community knows that all UNRWA studies are full of hate and incitement. The international community continues to inject funds because it is against Israel."

Top UNRWA official says he champions both Israel and Palestinian refugees
Just a few years ago, Peter Mulrean was defending Israel in what is arguably one of the most hostile diplomatic environments for the Jewish state.

In 2013, as the US deputy ambassador to the United Nations Humans Rights Council in Geneva, he hailed Jerusalem for its “strong commitment and track record in upholding human rights, political freedoms and civil liberties.”

Today, Mulrean is a senior official at UNRWA, the UN agency dealing with Palestinian refugees, arguably the most hated organization in Israel and one the US government recently called “irredeemably flawed.”

From his office just across from UN headquarters in Manhattan’s Turtle Bay, Mulrean promotes the agency on the world’s largest international stage.

The director of UNRWA’s Representative Office in New York decries the recent budget cuts by the US administration and passionately rejects the often-made argument that the agency perpetuates the Palestinian refugee problem and stands in the way of a realistic solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Human Rights Council Elections Set to Deliver Another Record-High Number of Rights-Abusing Members
The U.N. holds annual “elections” for its Human Rights Council this week and, once again, none of the five regional groups are offering any competition for the vacant seats. Instead all five are putting up “closed slates” of candidates – a practice seen as one of the main reasons rights-abusing regimes are able to secure seats.

Indeed, the absence of competitive slates makes it possible to predict, three days before the U.N. General Assembly holds the exercise in New York, that next year the 47-member HRC will have 14 members – 29.7 percent – that are graded “not free” by the veteran democracy advocacy group, Freedom House.

That’s a record high for “not free” countries on the 13-year-old council, tied only with the 2018 membership.

Failing unexpected last minute developments, the 2019 HRC membership will comprise 23 “free” countries, 10 “partly free,” and 14 “not free.”

The presence on the U.N.’s top human rights body of regimes with poor human rights records was one of the main reasons cited by the Trump administration for its decision to withdraw over the summer, following what it said were unsuccessful attempts to reform it.



Anti-Zionist Conspiracy Theories Seek the Mainstream
Before Stephen Walt and John Mearsheimer lent their academic credentials to a widely discredited 2007 book, The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy, alleging an “Israel Lobby” that controls American foreign policy to the detriment of the U.S., conspiracy theories of this sort dwelt mostly within the fringe domain of white supremacists, neo-Nazis, anti-Semites, and their ilk.

These type of conspiracy theories evoked the notorious 1903 fraud, The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion, purporting to document a nefarious Jewish plot for global domination, manipulating economies, and fomenting war. Despite its exposure as an anti-Semitic fabrication some 20 years later, the Protocol’s bogus charges continued to serve as a staple of anti-Semitic, Nazi and ZOG (“Zionist Occupied Government”) propaganda, inciting hatred, pogroms and massacres against Jews. Hitler referred to the Protocols in his early speeches and in his autobiography, Mein Kampf. It became an integral part of his anti-Jewish ideology and Nazi propaganda. Protocols is also embraced by Holocaust deniers, by Hamas, and is a bestseller among enemies of Israel.

Stephen Walt and John Mearsheimer, professors of international affairs at Harvard University and University of Chicago respectively, attempted to bring new acceptance to ‘Zionist-Control-of-Government’ charges by presenting them as a scholarly study far removed from the anti-Semitic claims of the Protocols. Positioning themselves as righteous truth-tellers, Walt and Mearsheimer hastened to assure readers that the Israel lobby is “certainly not a cabal or conspiracy that ‘controls’ U.S. foreign policy” but rather “a powerful interest group, made up of both Jews and gentiles, whose acknowledged purpose is to press Israel’s case within the United States.”

Undermining this disclaimer, however, was the authors’ disturbingly vague definition of the so-called “Israel lobby” as “a loose coalition of individuals and organizations” with “unmatched” power and “the ability to manipulate the American political system” against the interests and well-being of U.S. citizens. Beyond evoking the old claims of disproportionate and undue Jewish influence, the book’s supporting “evidence” was widely dismissed by academicians, reviewers and politicians across the spectrum, who exposed its shoddy scholarship, use of falsified quotations, distortion of facts, and untrue conclusions.
Miko Peled, playing to the antisemitic crowd that adores him
I recently returned from a short vacation in Israel. Visiting Israel should be a requirement for anyone actively engaged in the fight against antisemitism. It works like receiving an antidote. Nothing places the IHRA definition of antisemitism into perspective better than witnessing first-hand the enormous gulf between the democratic reality on Israel’s streets and the non-existent demon-state that is described in anti-Israel Facebook groups. It leaves with you a lasting clarity over the absurdity of the anti-Israel arguments.

Last week Israeli state TV ran a documentary on BDS (in Hebrew). I had given them access to my archives and was interviewed by them for the show. The team who made the documentary had met with Miko Peled in Israel. It is worth viewing this short segment to see how nasty Peled is in real life:


Most people know Peled’s backstory and I have no interest in repeating what others have written before. I was in the room when he spoke about giving Holocaust denial a platform. What always interests me is the support network. Miko Peled is an angry outcast, that nobody should have heard of. Instead he is given top billing at BDS events internationally. We know anti-Zionist Jews are a fringe group, so the question can be asked – just who is in the audience?

As my research into the Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign showed, when Jewish people stand up to claim there is no problem with antisemitism, half of the people in the room applauding are hard-core antisemites themselves (see case study on Jackie Walker event p91-110).

I argue that without this support network of antisemites, these fringe anti-Zionist Jews would not have an audience. By placing greater import on the antisemites than the few useful puppets they hide behind I also suggest that this is a more accurate way of looking at the problem. So when Miko Peled responded to my tweet of the video above, my natural instinct was to look at those people who were applauding him.

*It has to be said, that nobody is responsible for those that like, comment or share things they have written*. But that isn’t the point. I am not interested in individuals. Miko Peled is not responsible if one, two or five antisemites are in the audience, but when that level reaches 50% doesn’t it demand that we ask questions? Given the high levels of antisemitic thought present in his audience why is Miko Peled denying their existence?
Cary Nelson: Jasbir Puar Launches Women’s Studies on a Death Spiral
The National Women’s Studies Association (NWSA) has now crossed a further line in self-discreditation by honoring Jasbir Puar’s December 2017 book The Right to Maim: Debility, Capacity, Disability, a publication that discards evidentiary standards and instead bases its accusations against the Jewish state on its author’s personal fantasies. In September 2018 the NWSA awarded The Right to Maimits Alison Piepmeier Book Prize, describing the book as a “major milestone.” It has now officially endorsed an irresponsible and discriminatory research agenda for feminist faculty and students.

My book in manuscript—Israel Denial: Anti-Zionism, Anti-Semitism, & the Faculty Campaign Against the Jewish State—devotes its longest chapter (30,000 words) to an analysis of Jasbir Puar’s publications. Most anti-Israel faculty publications focus on debatable propositions. Not Puar. You can debate the claim that Israel discriminates against its Arab citizens, but so long as there is evidence of racism among some Israelis you cannot wholly discredit the accusation. Puar, however, makes arguments that can actually be proven factually right or wrong. They are consistently false.

Take one example: she claims that Israel has been stunting the growth of Palestinian children. Stunting (below normal height) means children are at greater risk for illness, reduced cognitive capacity, and premature death. The WHO, UNICEF, and other groups publish statistical reports on this and other health concerns. So does the Palestinian Authority. There are scores of published academic papers on the subject. All come to the same conclusion: comparing stunting rates across the world proves it is not a major health problem in Gaza or the West Bank. The WHO standard for classifying stunting as a major health concern is 20%. Stunting in the West Bank Gaza runs at 7-10% of children aged 1-5 years. By comparison, Egypt’s rate is 19.8%. Sub-Saharan Africa and Asia include countries with dramatically higher stunting rates: India (38.4%), Ethiopia (38.4%), Zambia (40%), Pakistan (45%), Madagascar (49.2%), Eritrea (50.2%), and Burundi (57.5%). Puar cites none of this research. If Israel is stunting the growth of Palestinian children it is doing a very poor job indeed.

To publish an anti-Zionist and anti-Semitic book without factual proof Puar did not have to find the long lost publisher of The Protocols of the Elders of Zion. She simply gave the manuscript to Duke University Press. There it would be judged by people within the echo-chamber of anti-Zionists who don’t care about facts. Their standard for original scholarship is “Tell us something bad about Israel we don’t already know.” Duke obviously did not do any independent fact-checking. It then added the Duke University imprimatur to a book that dishonors the University and should be withdrawn from publication. Instead, The Right to Maimwill probably earn Puar a full professorship at Rutgers. After all, distinguished scholars like Judith Butler have endorsed the book on its jacket. Credulous audiences in universities across the country applaud its arguments when Puar lectures. And now the book has a national award.
In Its Current Form, the Labor Party Threatens the Freedom and Safety of the UK’s Jews
Since Jeremy Corbyn became leader of the British Labor party in 2015, his indifference to anti-Semitism within his party’s ranks, friendliness with terrorists, and hostility toward Israel and Zionists have caused mounting public concern. Daniel Johnson assesses the state of affairs:

Corbyn’s long record of support for nations and organizations that are implacably opposed to the West is unprecedented. Rightly, the public is anxious about what this might portend, were he ever to occupy Downing Street. . . . Corbyn takes cognizance only of those Jews (a vanishingly small minority) who share his loathing of Israel—not unlike the [turn-of-the-century] anti-Semitic mayor of Vienna, Karl Lueger, who notoriously quipped: “I’ll decide who is a Jew.” . . .

Jeremy Corbyn is a guilty man who protests his innocence while presiding over a purge of any Labor MP who tells the truth. . . . And for what purpose? The Corbyn case is also about politics—electoral politics. In the words of Mehdi Hasan, now the political editor of the Huffington Post and a presenter for Al Jazeera, “anti-Semitism isn’t just tolerated in some sections of the British Muslim community; it’s routine and commonplace. . . . It’s our dirty little secret.” In the five years since Hasan made his confession, anti-Semitism has become the “dirty little secret” of another community: the left wing of the Labor party. And there is a connection: the left is targeting Muslim votes. No wonder Corbyn has greeted all accusations of anti-Semitism . . . with indifference or silence.

Instead of challenging this vile prejudice and demanding that Muslim community leaders address the canker in their midst, the Labor party has quietly acquiesced. It tolerates the Corbyn camp’s toadying to anti-Semitic preachers and demagogues. How different the outcome of the Corbyn case might have been if more Muslims had denounced the Labor leader to demonstrate their revulsion at anti-Semitism. . . .
'Corbyn anti-Semite who wants to return Britain to dark times'
Britain’s Parliament hosted Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon Tuesday.

In his address, the ambassador referred to statements made by opposition leader and Labour Party chairman Jeremy Corbyn, calling him “an anti-Semite who wants to return Britain to darker periods in its history.”

The ambassador added that “in his actions and statements, Corbyn gives oxygen to incidents of racism by embracing his terrorist friends and encouraging the activities of BDS. Israel stands by the Jewish community in England.”

Corbyn and the Labour Party have faced a string of scandals involving anti-Semitism and accusations of bigotry in recent months.

The Daily Mail has published photos of the Labour leader at a cemetery in Tunisia holding a wreath near the graves of some of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) terrorists who were responsible for the massacre of the 11 Israeli athletes at the 1972 Munich Olympics.

Days later, a picture emerged of Corbyn apparently making a salute linked to the Muslim Brotherhood organization.

That week, the Times of London published a picture of Corbyn meeting with the leader-in-exile of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) terrorist organization, only weeks before its members carried out an attack on a Jerusalem synagogue in which six people were murdered.
Non-Jews fight UK Labour anti-Semitism from the inside
Steeped in anti-Semitism accusations involving him and his supporters, British Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn has made many Jewish enemies — including inside his own party.

But one of his most effective critics is not Jewish. He is a meteorology student at the University of Reading who describes himself as “just a kid with a laptop.”

Denny Taylor, 20, has used that laptop to keep a running tally of party members who have flouted Labour’s own guidelines against hate speech and report them to the party’s ethics review panel.

Horrified at the revelations about Corbyn’s ties to anti-Semites, Taylor set up Labour Against Anti-Semitism, or LAAS, in 2016 with a few dozen non-Jewish and Jewish volunteers. He was 18 and had voted the previous year for Corbyn.

It was LAAS that last month reported to Labour’s ethics panel on an old recording in which Corbyn declared that Zionists “don’t understand English irony.” The group has flagged 1,200 alleged members who it said have breached the party’s guidelines against hate speech and has a backlog of about 2,000 additional cases of people engaging in what LAAS considers anti-Semitic rhetoric. LAAS has not reported the latter yet, according to its spokesman, Euan Philipps, who also is not Jewish.
Fliers on 4 college campuses blame Jews for Kavanaugh ruckus
Fliers blaming Jews for the sexual assault allegations against newly sworn-in Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh were posted on two University of California campuses, Berkeley and Davis, as well as at Vassar and Marist colleges, both located in the same city in New York state.

“Every time some Anti-White, Anti-American, Anti-freedom event takes place, you look at it, and it’s Jews behind it,” the fliers discovered Monday read.

The flier shows an image of Kavanaugh surrounded by caricatures of Jewish members of the US Senate with Stars of David drawn on their foreheads, as well as the Jewish billionaire George Soros, who has been accused of funding opposition to Kavanaugh. One of Kavanaugh’s accusers, Christine Blasey Ford, and the attorney for two others, Michael Avenatti, also are depicted with the words “Good Goy” written on their foreheads.

The fliers say they are “Brought to you by your local Stormer book club.”

According to the ADL, the Daily Stormer Book Club chapters, or SBCs, are “small crews of young white men who follow and support Andrew Anglin and his neo-Nazi website, the Daily Stormer.”

Petition Denouncing Upcoming Anti-Zionist Conference at UCLA Passes 2,000 Signatures
A petition urging the University of California, Los Angeles to reconsider hosting an upcoming anti-Zionist conference surpassed 2,000 signatories on Friday, amid a continuing outcry against the event.

The online petition — launched by the campus branch of the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America (CAMERA) — says the eighth annual National Students for Justice in Palestine (NSJP), which was first announced in August, “is designed to instill hatred towards and intolerance while proliferating lies about Israel.”

The event marks the largest annual gathering of NSJP activists, who help promote the boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel on North American university campuses — a campaign denounced by major Jewish organizations, and opposed by both UCLA and UC regents.

The conference will seek to remind students “that Zionism … can be destroyed,” according to its organizers, who define Zionism — the movement that supports the Jewish people’s right to national self-determination — as “ethnic cleansing, destruction, mass expulsion, apartheid, and death.”

These objectives have drawn criticism from the UCLA branch of Students Supporting Israel (SSI), as well as the groups Alums for Campus Fairness at UCLA and StandWithUs, all of which oppose the BDS campaign.
New York City's Islamist Grant
On August 21, the New York City Council announced $250,000 in grants made to 14 Muslim community organizations, in collaboration with the New York Immigration Coalition. Alarmingly, three of the grant recipients are linked to Islamic extremism -- the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Muslim American Society (MAS) and the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA).

Worse, it seems that ICNA, in particular, plans to use the money not for civic improvement but for religious proselytizing.

The grant announcement was made at ICNA's headquarters in Jamaica, Queens, after the jumu'ah prayer service. Present were the young speaker of the city council, Corey Johnson, and Councilman Daneek Miller, the sole Muslim member of the council.

Councilman Miller is no stranger to ICNA; his campaign website prominently features a photo of him speaking at the ICNA mosque.

ICNA was established in 1971, ostensibly as a "non-ethnic, non-sectarian" grassroots organization, with the aim of seeking the "establishment of the Islamic system of life as spelled out in the Qur'an."

In fact, it functions as the American arm of the Pakistani Islamist group Jamaat e-Islami (JI). Indeed, ICNA's international charity, Helping Hand for Relief and Development (HHRD), works closely with JI in Pakistan. Worse, in 2017 HHRD openly worked with the "political" wing of the murderous terror group Lashkar-e-Taiba.
Amazon Funnelled Cash to Salafist Org Founded by ‘Extremist’ UK-Based Saudi Scholar
Amazon has been funnelling cash to a Salafist ‘charity’ led by an Islamic scholar described as “one of the most dangerous men in Britain” by counter-extremists, a British newspaper has claimed.

The Jeff Bezos-led retail giant allowed the Muslim Research and Development Foundation (MRDF) founded by Saudi-born Haitham al-Haddad into its Amazon Smile programme, which allows customers to donate a percentage of their purchases to charity, according to a Times investigation.

Al-Haddad has been branded “dangerous” by the Quilliam counter-extremism think tank, and as “misogynistic, racist, and homophobic” by UK Government counter-extremism commissioner Sara Khan.

A series of controversial statements by the Salafist scholar — a graduate in Islamic law from the University of London’s School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) — have been compiled by The Times, advancing a range of hardline views.

These include claims that adulterous women should be stoned to death, and that he has, in fact, received “many requests from Western women… begging me to help them to find their way to a Muslim country to be stoned to death” so they could “avoid punishment in the afterlife” — although it is not revealed whether he actually did facilitate any voluntary executions of this kind.

“It is the Islamic punishment. What does the UK government want? Do they want Muslims to change their beliefs?” he demanded.
Bennett protests to University of Michigan over Netanyahu-Hitler comparison
Education Minister Naftali Bennett sent a letter to the University of Michigan’s President Mark Schlissel, urging him to oppose anti-Israel hatred on campus after a lecturer compared Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to Adolf Hitler, claiming both are guilty of genocide.

Bennett also raised a previous case of a University of Michigan professor who would not write a letter of recommendation for a student who wanted to study abroad in Israel, a spokesperson for the minister said in a statement Tuesday.

“The time has come for you as head of the university to make a strong stand against what has clearly become a trend of vitriolic hatred against the Jewish state on your campus,” Bennett wrote to the university president.

During a compulsory lecturer, speaker Emory Douglas, part of the “Penny Stamps Speakers Series Presentation” of the Stamps School of Art & Design, displayed a slide that showed a picture of Netanyahu and Hitler with the words “Guilty Of Genocide” written across their faces.

Below the photo was a definition of genocide as “The deliberate killing of a large group of people, especially those of a particular nation or ethnic group.”
Pamela Geller: Brown University Celebrates 'Palestinians' on 'Indigenous Peoples’ Day'
Last week, Brown University’s Office of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs sent out greeting for “Indigenous Peoples’ Day Weekend,” which has replaced Fall Weekend — Columbus Day weekend — in the uber-politically correct academic environment. Brown’s action is part of the larger effort by the academic left to cast Columbus as a villain and focus on Native Americans as sainted martyrs.

But as if this celebration weren’t politicized enough, Brown made it poisonously so by including the “Palestinians” among the “indigenous people” whose plight was being observed. But what makes this story extra insidious is the fact that the school took this anti-American movement and attempted to turn it into an anti-Israel day as well. The left is so desperate to attack Israel that they twisted their own attack on the U.S. to do so.

“Indigenous Peoples’ Day (IPD),” explained the Office of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs, “celebrates the resilience and accomplishments of Indigenous people and acknowledges the contemporary struggles indigenous communities face today. Further, IPD is an intervention against erasure, a principle barrier to the improvement of indigenous sovereignty and health status.”

The struggling indigenous people in question, according to the Diversity Office, included “567 Federally Recognized tribes, 61 State Recognized tribes,” as well as “Hawaiians and the people indigenous to its territories in the Caribbean and Pacific Oceans.” Many of these groups, the announcement went on, “experience profound disparities in health care access and health status compared to the general population, resulting in elevated rates of diabetes, liver disease, and other chronic diseases,” which are “exacerbated by a significant shortage of primary care physicians in Indigenous communities and a long-standing mistrust of the American health care system rooted in a history of genocide and forced assimilation.”
Boycott's new target: Bulldozer companies
Anti-Israel boycott (BDS) organizations recently identified a new target. Following the planned evacuation of Khan al-Ahmar, BDS is looking to boycott the bulldozers used to demolish the illegal structures.

Strategic application of measured violence and international sympathy have protected the Bedouins of Khan al-Ahmar from expulsion, and "stopped bulldozers, produced by international corporations to demolish homes and schools," a BDS statement said.

"The strategic BDS campaign is critical, as the Supreme Court approved demolition of Khan al-Ahmar to make way for illegal settlements on occupied Palestinian land, including corporations that manufacture and sell the bulldozers involved in the this destruction by Israel: JCB (UK), Caterpillar (USA), Volvo (Sweden), Hyundai (South Korea), Hitachi (Japan) and Liogong (China)."

Another organization involved in the planned boycott is "Who Profits", which tracks companies that are "commercially involved in Israeli and international companies in the continued Israeli control over Palestinian and Syrian land." The same organization sent boycott warning letters to bulldozer manufacturers. The organization's website also stated that the bulldozers of these companies are used for constructing Jewish settlement in Judea and Samaria as another reason for the boycott.

Lev HaOlam organization founder Attorney Nati Rom, who fights the global boycott and BDS organizations, said: "The BDS organization appears to be boycotting itself, and their steps become more and more ridiculous, as they spread their frustration to giant corporations." Lev HaOlam sends thousands of product packages from Judea and Samaria to Israeli supporters all over the world and is in contact with thousands of foreign citizens.
Minister: If US student held at airport renounces BDS views, we might let her in
Strategic Affairs Minister Gilad Erdan (Likud) on Tuesday said a US student of Palestinian descent, who has been held at Ben Gurion Airport for a week and faces deportation for allegedly supporting an Israel boycott, can leave Israel whenever she wants.

Erdan, whose ministry is responsible for countering the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions Movement against Israel, known as BDS, also said that if Lara Alqasem were to renounce her past activities and publicly declare that boycott efforts are not legitimate, he would reconsider her case.

Alqasem, 22, who has Palestinian grandparents, was prevented from entering the country after arriving at Ben Gurion Airport last Tuesday, despite having received a student visa from the Israeli Consulate in Miami to study in a masters program at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. She has been held in a airport detention facility ever since.

The Population Immigration and Border Authority has said the decision to stop Alqasem at the airport was due to her “boycott activity,” while Strategic Affairs Ministry officials said she was a member of the National Students for Justice in Palestine, a campus group that calls for boycotting Israel over its policies toward the Palestinians.

“They make a show as if Israel is imprisoning a student,” Erdan, who is also public security minister, told Army Radio on Tuesday morning. “She can go home to her country whenever she wants. This student stood at the head of a branch of an extreme organization, and it is not reasonable that she can come here and enjoy Israel’s academic benefits while she is trying to harm Israeli citizens.”
Government said to use Canary Mission blacklist to bar visitors
Reports by a secretive right-wing website that collects and publishes information about anti-Israel activity of university students and others are being used by Israeli authorities to question or ban people attempting to enter the country, according to a report Thursday.

Documents submitted by the Strategic Affairs and Public Diplomacy Ministry on Thursday show that an American student was barred from entering Israel because of “suspicion of boycott activity” based on four Facebook posts and information on the Canary Mission website, the Haaretz daily reported.

Canary Mission is an anonymous website that aims to name and shame anti-Israel activists on campus.

The site “documents individuals and organizations that promote hatred of the USA, Israel and Jews on North American college campuses,” according to its “About us” page.

Critics have accused it of seeking to intimidate pro-Palestinian college students and stifle their activism with the threat of a blacklist.

In August, the Forward newspaper reported that a number of activists believed their Canary Mission profiles were being used by border authorities when they were questioned while trying to enter Israel.
HRC Counterpoint In Chronicle Herald: Ben-Gurion Bashed Unfairly
Leech attacked Ben-Gurion as a Zionist terrorist and a promoter of the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians from Israel territory. He cited Ilan Pappe’s writings to support his own position. It would have been advisable for the Herald to have enlarged on Leech’s background: he’s a left-wing, vehement opponent of Israel and strong advocate of the BDS movement (Boycott, Divest, Sanction of Israeli goods and of Israel) — as is Pappe.

Leech is the editor of the on-line publication Palestine Journal which includes verbal attacks on Israel, and on Canada for supporting the latter. Among his articles, Leech has written, “Why Israel Should Not Exist” (2015), “Fighting Colonialism in Palestine and Canada” (2015) and “Canada’s support for Israel is a ‘hate crime’” (2015).

Palestine Journal, under Leech’s editorship, has links listed to several groups that are defined as terrorist groups by the Canadian government, as well as links to armed groups.

One questions why the Herald did not offer disclosure about Leech, why CBU proudly employs him to teach young college students, or why Leech’s use of settler colonialism (a deeply flawed historiographic and sociological paradigm) goes unanswered by Nova Scotia academics.

One is better served on the topic of Ben-Gurion and Israel by such books as Walter Laqueur’s A History of Zionism. Settler colonialism advocates among Canadian historians need to reappraise their stance, for this interpretative approach too readily lends itself to anti-Israeli treatises.


EU Civil Servant Convicted of Antisemitic Assault by Belgian Court Says He Will Appeal
The European Union civil servant found guilty last week of a vicious antisemitic assault in 2015 has said he will appeal the sentence handed down by a Belgian court.

Stefan Grech, a 49-year-old Maltese citizen, was convicted of incitement to hate or violence toward people of Jewish faith, violation of anti-racism laws, and assault aggravated by racial hatred following a violent altercation in a Brussels cafe in July 2015 — during which he violently attacked an Italian colleague, called her a “dirty Jewess,” and shouted that “the Jews are doing to the Palestinians what Hitler did to the Jews.”

On Oct. 2, Grech was given a three-year suspended sentence and ordered to pay his victim 500 euros in compensation by a court in Brussels. But over the weekend, the Times of Malta reported that Grech would appeal the sentence, accusing the Brussels-based Belgian League Against Antisemitism (LBCA) of launching a “witch-hunt” against him.

Prior to sentencing Grech — who holds a previous conviction for possession of child pornography — the court heard that on July 16, 2015, he had been celebrating his 10th anniversary as an employee of the European Commission with friends at L’Italiano cafe in the Belgian capital. After drinking heavily throughout the evening, Grech, who had been clutching a metal plaque commemorating the fascist leader Benito Mussolini, embarked on a tirade in praise of the late Italian dictator.

Confronted by a 50-year-old Italian woman who also works in a senior position at the European Commission, Grech attacked her when she pointed out to him that Mussolini had murdered thousands of Jews. Witnesses said that when she told Grech that she “could be Jewish,” he then struck her across the head with the metal plaque and attempted to strangle her. Throughout the assault, he yelled antisemitic epithets including, “dirty Jewess,” and, “You should have all been killed.”
Time's up - but no sign that the archive is moving
The deadline for the return of the Iraqi-Jewish archive - September 2018 - has come and gone, but there is still no sign of any movement on this issue.

Eylon Aslan-Levy has filed this report for i24 News: he interviews Harold Rhode, the man who found the archive in the flooded basement of the secret police headquarters in Baghdad in 2003.

The US shipped the random collection of documents, books and Torah scrolls - stolen by Saddam's regime - to the US to be restored, but promised to send it back to Iraq.

Rhode believes that to return the archive would be like returning stolen Jewish property to the Nazis. Iraqi-Jewish groups have been campaigning for the archive - which represents their community's history and heritage - to remain in the US. Four US senators have introduced a bill to this effect.


Inside Iron Dome's secret manufacturing plant
"Globes" visits the complex of bunkers where Rafael produces Israel's short range missile interceptors.

The complex of bunkers in which Rafael Advanced Defense Systems Ltd. is producing the Iron Dome missile interceptors looks just like you would imagine: it is well protected and guarded, the safety procedures in it are rigorous, and access to it is strictly limited to people with authorization. Those entering are received at a locked iron gate opened only by arrangement after being properly identified, even if the person involved is the head of the project himself. There are illuminated signs on the high fences enclosing the secret bunkers reading, "Work with explosives is taking place in this compound."

The condition for entering the bunker in which final assembly of the missile takes place is leaving behind any device capable of broadcasting or creating static electricity. Cameras, telephones, and recording devices are out of bounds. A heavy door opens, showing long white corridor leading to workspace whose purpose is unmistakable: Tamir Iron Dome interceptor missiles that Rafael employees have been manufacturing for the past seven years are piled on a cart in the center of the room.

Only a few people working at Rafael and the Ministry of Defense know just how many of these missiles have been produced to date. They are keeping this number secret; they merely give a wink to the curious, as if to say, "Don't worry; we've got enough."

The well-built Tamir is colored in glittering silver and gold, weighing 90 kilograms with a three-meter length. It has earned great praise with 1,800 interceptions of rockets fired against vulnerable human and property targets in populous areas in southern and northern Israel.

"Every missile leaving here gets a pat and a kiss"
Sonia Orbuch, Who Fought the Nazis as a Teenager, Has Died at 93
As a teenager, Sonia Orbuch joined a group of partisans fighting the Nazis in Eastern Europe. She survived the war and settled in America. At 93, Orbuch died last Sunday at her home in Corte Madera, California.

In 1941 Orbuch was 16 years old and still known by her given name as Sarah Shainwald, when the Nazis occupied her hometown in eastern Poland and began killing Jews in Luboml’s ghetto. Shainwald and her family fled for the forests and after surviving the frozen winter, joined a band of Soviet partisans to fight back against the Nazis. Her fellow resistance fighters changed her name to Sonia because it sounded less Jewish.

The profile of Orbuch on The Jewish Partisan Educational Foundation (JPEF—a group Orbuch helped to found) website describes her actions as a Partisan and her family’s eventual decision to break with the resistance.

Sonia began her new life in the forest encampment that served as a base for missions of sabotage and resistance. Early on, Sonia was assigned to guard duty and providing first-aid on missions to mine enemy train tracks. With little training, Sonia learned the skills of a field-hospital aide, treating the wounds of injured partisans, using whatever makeshift supplies were available. To avoid possible torture and interrogation in the event of capture, Sonia carried two hand grenades: “One for the enemy, and one for myself.”

… In 1944, Sonia and her parents faced the decision of either leaving the partisans or joining the Red Army. They decided to leave the partisans and took refuge in an abandoned house infected with typhus, a condition they were unaware of at the time. The typhus soon claimed Sonia’s mother, leaving only Sonia and her father.


Towards the end of the war, as German forces retreated, Orbuch and her family returned to Luboml and found that of the 8,000 Jews who had lived there before the war, 50 remained.
Childhood friends separated by Holocaust reunite 75 years later
"Estike," Chaya Levy called out as her childhood friend Esther Sheinberg walked in through the door to her apartment and the two met in person for the first time in 75 years.

After greeting one another with warm embraces and kisses, the two sat down to reminisce about what it was like growing up in the Transylvanian village of Beclean, in what is now Romania.

Up until Sunday, neither of the childhood friends could ever have imagined the other had survived the Holocaust.

Both Levy, 91, and Sheinberg, 88, were deported to the Auschwitz death camp in Poland. At the end of the war, they both made the decision to move to Israel, where they unknowingly lived adjacent to one another in the central Israeli city of Bnei Brak for a short time.

The reunion between the two friends came about by accident when their daughters were introduced through a mutual friend and ended up spending the Sukkot holiday together in Safed. While there, they were surprised to discover that both their mothers had grown up in the same village in what was then Hungary. When the daughters later told their mothers about the other girl who had grown up in Beclean, Levy and Sheinberg immediately recognized the other's name and remembered their childhood friend.
France Awards Top Honours to Nazi Hunters Serge and Beate Klarsfeld
France’s most famous Nazi hunters, Serge Klarsfeld and his German wife Beate, received top honours in a ceremony led by French President Emmanuel Macron on Monday.

Serge Klarsfeld, 83, received the Grand Cross of the Legion of Honour, France’s highest award, while the 79-year-old Beate Klarsfeld received the National Order of Merit, having already been decorated with the Legion of Honour in 2014, with the rank of Grand Officer.

The Chief Rabbi of France Haim Korsia was among those who attended the ceremony at the Elysee Palace limited to family and close friends and associates.

Born September 17, 1935, in the Romanian capital Bucharest, Serge Klarsfeld escaped the Holocaust after his family moved to France but saw his father taken away to die in the Auschwitz Nazi concentration camp.

He was naturalised in 1950, and 10 years later, while studying at the prestigious Science-Po university in Paris, Klarsfled met Beate Kuenzel, the daughter of a former German soldier, on a metro platform.

The two, who married three years later, decided to bring fugitive Nazis to justice, a mission they pursued for more than half a century.
During visit to Israel, actor Gerard Butler says 'may decide to stay'
Gerard Butler's irresistible smile and hypnotizing blue eyes can almost convince anyone that he really is capable of saving the world, the way the Scottish actor often does in the movies ("Olympus Has Fallen"; "London Has Fallen") and that's precisely what he does in his latest film, "Hunter Killer," which will hit theaters on October 25.

On the occasion of the Israeli premiere of the film, Butler, 48, has arrived in Israel to attend the glamorous event. This is quite unusual, as Hollywood actors seldom attend premieres in Israel, but the film's Israeli producer, Avi Lerner, may have had a hand in convincing the Hollywood star to come this time.

"It is very challenging to bring an artist of this caliber to Israel," Lerner said. "He only came because I'm Israeli. I asked him to come. This is our sixth movie together, and I'm very pleased that he came."

In the film, which Butler also co-produced, Joe Glass, played by Butler, is the captain of an American submarine on a rescue mission. On the way to rescue a submarine in distress, Glass and his crew come across a Russian coup and must rescue the kidnapped Russian president from rebels who are threatening the world order. The film takes place almost entirely in the submarine.

When asked about the political undertones of the film, which are particularly relevant in the current climate, he says, "I am interested in politics, but I didn't come to Israel to talk about politics."
Jewish Actor William Shatner Talks About Facing a ‘Great Deal’ of Antisemitism as a Child
Jewish Canadian actor William Shatner opened up in a recent interview about being the target of antisemites during his childhood.

The 87-year-old, who is best known for his role as Captain James T. Kirk in Star Trek, told The Sydney Morning Herald that he experienced “a great deal” of antisemitism growing up in Montreal, a city that was mostly Catholic. Shatner said the discrimination that he faced for being Jewish was “very difficult” for him to deal with.

“I’m shaped by a lot of battles from six years old up until now,” he explained before revealing the kind of antisemitism he regularly faced. “Fights, every day, with one or more kids my size or bigger. Somebody recently showed me a high school graduation book. There I was — a nice-looking boy — and my nickname was ‘Toughie’ because I was always fighting and being attacked. Kids would all crowd around, yelling, ‘Fight! Fight! Fight!’”

During his time at McGill University in Montreal the antisemitism continued, he told The Sydney Morning Herald. He said, “The university I went to had a quota. How I made it through the quota, I don’t know. There was a limit to the number of Jewish kids who could go to that university, no matter how qualified they were.”


Archaeologists unearth 2000-year-old Hebrew 'Jerusalem' inscription
The earliest written inscription of the word Jerusalem written in Hebrew on a 2,000 year old column drum was unveiled on Tuesday at a press conference at The Israel Museum in Jerusalem.

The limestone column drum that dates back to the Second Temple period, was discovered 10 months ago on an excavation site near the International Convention Center in Jerusalem.

The words: “Hanania son of Dudolos from Jerusalem” was etched on the column which was part of a building that stood in a Jewish potters village near the entrance of the Jerusalem some 2,000 years ago.

Prior to this discovery, the city's name was written as Yerushalem or Shalem in Hebrew, this inscription was the first time the city was written as Yerushalayim in Hebrew characters.

The word Jerusalem was found on silver coins dating before the time of this column, but they were written in Aramaic.

          Britain, NATO Prepare For War On Russia In The Arctic      Cache   Translate Page      

Authored by Brian Cloughley via The Strategic Culture Foundation,

On September 30 the UK’s foreign minister, Jeremy Hunt, delivered an astonishing tirade, saying “The EU was set up to protect freedom. It was the Soviet Union that stopped people leaving. The lesson from history is clear: if you turn the EU club into a prison, the desire to get out won’t diminish, it will grow — and we won’t be the only prisoner that will want to escape.”

His comparison of the EU to gulags of former years played well with many people in Britain, but was understandably regarded as totally inappropriate by the EU, whose spokesman’s polite observation was “I would say respectfully that we would all benefit – and in particular foreign affairs ministers – from opening a history book from time to time.”

The lunacy didn’t stop there. Not content with insulting the EU’s 27 countries, the government in London decided to whip up even more patriotic fervour by again trying to portray Russia as a threat to the United Kingdom.

In June 2018 the UK’s Sun newspaper carried the headline “Britain will send RAF Typhoon fighter jets to Iceland in bid to tackle Russian aggression” and since then Mr Williamson hasn’t altered his contention that “the Kremlin continues to challenge us in every domain.” (Williamson is the man who declared in March 2018 that “Frankly Russia should go away — it should shut up,” which was one of the most juvenile public utterances of recent years.)

It was reported on September 29 that Williamson was concerned about “growing Russian aggression ‘in our back yard’,” and that the Government was drawing up a “defence Arctic strategy” with 800 commandos being deployed to a new base in Norway. In an interview “Mr Williamson highlighted Russia’s re-opening of Soviet-era bases and ‘increased tempo’ of submarine activity as evidence that Britain needed to ‘demonstrate we’re there’ and ‘protect our interests’.”

Mr Williamson has not indicated what “interests” the United Kingdom could have in the Arctic region, where it has no territory.

The eight countries with territory north of the Arctic Circle are Canada, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Russia, Sweden and the United States. They have legitimate interests in the region which is twice the area of the US and Canada combined. But Britain has not one single claim to the Arctic. Not even a tenuous one like Iceland’s, which is based on the fact that although its mainland is not within the Arctic Circle, the Circle does pass through Grimsey Island, about 25 kilometres north of Iceland’s north coast. Britain’s Shetland Islands, its northernmost land, are 713 kilometres (443 miles) south of the Arctic Circle.

So why does the UK declare that it has “interests” in the Arctic and that the region is “in our back yard”? How can it possibly feel threatened?

The Arctic Institute observed in February 2018 that Russia’s “newer Arctic strategy papers focus on preventing smuggling, terrorism, and illegal immigration instead of balancing military power with NATO. These priorities suggest that Russia’s security aims in the Arctic have to do with safeguarding the Arctic as a strategic resource base... In general, the government-approved documents seem to have moved from an assertive tone that highlights Russia’s rivalry with NATO to a less abrasive tone based on securing economic development.”

And economic development is what it’s all about. On September 28 “it was reported that “a Danish-flagged cargo ship successfully passed through the Russian Arctic in a trial voyage showing that melting sea ice could potentially open a new trade route from Europe to east Asia.” It is obviously in the best economic interests of the European Union and Russia that the route be developed for commercial transit. To do this requires avoidance of conflict in the region.

So what’s your problem, Defence Minister Williamson?

In August Britain’s Parliamentary Defence Committee published On Thin Ice: UK Defence in the Arctic which concluded that “There is little doubt that the Arctic and the High North are seeing an increasing level of military activity. There is much greater divergence in the evidence we have taken on what the reasons behind this are, particularly in relation to Russia. One view is that there is no offensive intent behind Russia’s military build-up and that it is simply trying to regenerate military capacity in order to reassert sovereignty. The opposite view is that this is just one more part of Russia’s aggressive reassertion of great power competition.”

The Danish Government told the Committee that “Presently, Denmark sees no need for an increased military engagement or enhanced operative role for NATO in the Arctic”, and the Swedish Ambassador said “The Swedish Arctic is a limited part of Swedish territory. We are more a Baltic Sea nation than an Arctic nation... Obviously, the whole area around the Arctic, in particular the Kola Peninsula, is of strategic importance to Russia and they have a serious military presence there. We see all of that. Is that reason to call it militarisation of the Arctic?”

In January Reuters reported that China had notified its Arctic strategy, “pledging to work more closely with Moscow in particular to create an Arctic maritime counterpart — a ‘Polar Silk Road’ — to its ‘one belt, one road’ overland trade route to Europe. Both the Kremlin and Beijing have repeatedly stated that their ambitions are primarily commercial and environmental, not military.” It couldn’t be plainer that Russia and China want the Arctic to be a profitable mercantile trade route, while Russia wants to continue exploration for oil, gas and mineral deposits, which are important for its economy.

To develop the Arctic requires peace and stability. It would be impossible to reap the benefits of the new sea-route and potentially enormous energy and mineral riches if there were to be conflict in the North. It is obviously in the best interests of Russia and China that there be tranquillity rather than military confrontation.

But Britain’s Defence Minister insists there must be a military build-up by the UK in the Arctic “If we want to be protecting our interests in what is effectively our own back yard.” He is backed by the Parliament’s Defence Committee which states that “NATO’s renewed focus on the North Atlantic is welcome and the Government should be congratulated on the leadership the UK has shown on this issue.”

NATO is always on the lookout for excuses to indulge in military action (such as its nine–month blitz that destroyed Libya), and has announced it will conduct Arctic-focussed Exercise Trident Juncture in November, which Naval Today noted will be “one of the largest ever with 40,000 personnel, around 120 aircraft and as many as 70 ships converging in Norway.”

The NATO military alliance is preparing for war in the Arctic, and deliberately confronting Russia by conducting manoeuvres ever-closer to its borders. It had better be very careful.


          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.

          St Birgitta rebuked the King of Sweden for his homosexual life      Cache   Translate Page      
So, she was the aunt of the King of Sweden, who although married to a French princess was living a debauched life of homosexuality.
Birgitta -- who was married with several children -- infuriated the King by rebuking him for this life. He responded by turning his courtiers loose on her, who subjected her to many public humiliations -- at one point dumping a slop jar of excrement on her head while she was in court.
Years later, now a widow, Birgitta journeyed to Rome, where she founded an Order. In 1350, a Jubilee Year, Bridget braved a plague-stricken Europe to make a pilgrimage to Rome accompanied by her daughter, Catherine, and a small party of priests and disciples. This was done partly to obtain from the Pope the authorization of the new Order and partly in pursuance of her self-imposed mission to elevate the moral tone of the age. This was during the period of the Avignon Papacy within the Roman Catholic Church, however, and she had to wait for the return of the papacy to Rome from the French city of …

WATCH OUT GREEN PIGS! ROVIO AND RESOLUTION GAMES LAUNCH ANGRY BIRDS FPS: FIRST PERSON SLINGSHOT ON MAGIC LEAP ONE The new mixed reality game is available for free today and delivers the most immersive Angry Birds experience yet with precision controls and incredible spatial gameplay STOCKHOLM, Sweden, and ESPOO, Finland – Oct. 9, 2018 – Angry Birds fans can now slingshot with unrivaled accuracy in Angry Birds FPS: First Person Slingshot, the new mixed reality (MR) game released today for Magic Leap One Creator Edition at the L.E.A.P Conference by Rovio Entertainment (ROVIO) and Resolution Games. Angry Birds FPS is the first gaming experience developed entirely by an independent developer for Magic Leap’s spatial computing platform. A first-person slingshot lets players see incredibly realistic animated characters and objects overlaid onto their actual environment, bringing Angry Birds to life like never before – right in users’ homes. Magic Leap One Creator Edition is a lightweight, wearable computer that enriches your experience in the real world with digital content. A trailer of the game is available here. Kati Levoranta, CEO at Rovio Entertainment, commented, “It’s great to offer Angry Birds fans a completely new and unforeseen way to play the beloved Angry Birds. Resolution Games has done an excellent job at developing the Angry Birds to Magic Leap One. We’re always looking for opportunities to expand to new technologies and platforms, and Angry Birds FPS is an exciting step forward into the future of gaming.” For the very first time, Angry Birds fans can explore and navigate their environments to select which object to hit and angle their shot precisely for maximum impact. Players can then assess the damage by simply walking up to and around the structure. As players take aim, either directly or by bouncing off actual objects in the room, they can try to inflict maximum damage to the Green Pigs with the least hits or from farthest away to earn more points and stars in each level. “Rovio has established an incredibly successful and beloved entertainment franchise with Angry Birds. By taking Angry Birds to Magic Leap’s spatial computing platform, we’re giving fans one of the most engaging, interactive and immersive experiences possible,” said Tommy Palm, CEO of Resolution Games. “It really is quite remarkable that in 2018 we’re able to use full spatial gameplay and light field technology to enjoy these classic game mechanics and characters in our own environments.

          Wednesday's papers: National park limits, criminal gangs and nuclear questions      Cache   Translate Page      

Daily Maaseudun Tulevaisuus reports that the Finns Party youth organisation says it would limit the free use of national parks to Finnish citizens only. While growing tourism to Finland is a positive development, the country’s unique nature needs to be preserved for the next generations too, the group says.

"The forest is a church to Finns, and as a nationalistic youth organisation we are concerned about its state," the group's chair Samuli Voutila says in a statement.

”Will our magnificent national parks withstand the increasing number of visitors? And can foreigners correctly enjoy these rights that are inherent to Finns?” he asks.

As a result, the Finns Party juniors have proposed that foreign tourists and travel agencies should be required to buy a so called "forest permit" that allows non-citizens to roam in the woods based on the same rules as Finns.

The funds would be collected by Metsähallitus – a state-owned entity that manages public lands – and used to maintain the parks.

"To Finns, nature is not just a resource, but a holy place," Voutila adds.

Criminal gangs proliferate

Tabloid Iltalehti carries an article about new criminal gangs that have entered Finland in the past two years. These international gangs originate in Holland, Russia, the United States and Asia and operate globally, the paper says quoting the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI).

According to NBI police inspector Ari Lahtela, the new gangs are active in the same areas as the more established ones.

"Drugs, violence and financial crime," he says.

At the moment, there are 80 different criminal gangs in Finland, with a total membership of 800 people, the NBI estimates.

"The gangs are more visible in large cities where they congregate. However, they take care of the import and distribution of drugs across the country, from Hanko to Utsjoki," Lahtela explains.

What's more, the criminal underworld is nervous about the new competitors, Iltalehti says. "The old gangs worry about the newcomers entering their markets and whether this will lead to a conflict," Lahtela says.

In Sweden, the situation with the gangs looks quite difficult because the groups have become more international, causing tensions and violence.

"While the Swedish authorities recognised the situation already 10 years ago, not much has been done about it."

Nuclear safety questioned

Meanwhile, Oulu-based daily Kaleva reports that Finland's Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority (Stuk) has asked nuclear power company Fennovoima for more detailed reports about the power plant the company plans to construct in Pyhäjoki, northern Finland.

So far, the only area where Stuk has received adequate reports relates to waste disposal at the Hanhikivi site, Kaleva says.

Stuk director Petteri Tiippana says dealing with Fennovoima has been an exceptional process for Stuk.

"All parties need to learn about the ways the others operate and how these can be combined," Tiippana says.

Janne Nevalainen, Stuk's project manager responsible for the Hanhikivi plant, says Fennovoima needs to step up its game.

"In future, Fennovoima must provide analyses and plans specific to this plant. We cannot make decisions based on information and assumptions from other power plants."

Stuk has been worried about Fennovoima’s management and safety culture for quite a while, Kaleva reports.

"All plans and decisions taken at Fennovoima should be based on exact and thorough studies. We are unsure whether this has happened," Nevalainen says.

          Britain, NATO Prepare For War On Russia In The Arctic      Cache   Translate Page      

Authored by Brian Cloughley via The Strategic Culture Foundation,

On September 30 the UK’s foreign minister, Jeremy Hunt, delivered an astonishing tirade, saying “The EU was set up to protect freedom. It was the Soviet Union that stopped people leaving. The lesson from history is clear: if you turn the EU club into a prison, the desire to get out won’t diminish, it will grow — and we won’t be the only prisoner that will want to escape.”

His comparison of the EU to gulags of former years played well with many people in Britain, but was understandably regarded as totally inappropriate by the EU, whose spokesman’s polite observation was “I would say respectfully that we would all benefit – and in particular foreign affairs ministers – from opening a history book from time to time.”

The lunacy didn’t stop there. Not content with insulting the EU’s 27 countries, the government in London decided to whip up even more patriotic fervour by again trying to portray Russia as a threat to the United Kingdom.

In June 2018 the UK’s Sun newspaper carried the headline “Britain will send RAF Typhoon fighter jets to Iceland in bid to tackle Russian aggression” and since then Mr Williamson hasn’t altered his contention that “the Kremlin continues to challenge us in every domain.” (Williamson is the man who declared in March 2018 that “Frankly Russia should go away — it should shut up,” which was one of the most juvenile public utterances of recent years.)

It was reported on September 29 that Williamson was concerned about “growing Russian aggression ‘in our back yard’,” and that the Government was drawing up a “defence Arctic strategy” with 800 commandos being deployed to a new base in Norway. In an interview “Mr Williamson highlighted Russia’s re-opening of Soviet-era bases and ‘increased tempo’ of submarine activity as evidence that Britain needed to ‘demonstrate we’re there’ and ‘protect our interests’.”

Mr Williamson has not indicated what “interests” the United Kingdom could have in the Arctic region, where it has no territory.

The eight countries with territory north of the Arctic Circle are Canada, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Russia, Sweden and the United States. They have legitimate interests in the region which is twice the area of the US and Canada combined. But Britain has not one single claim to the Arctic. Not even a tenuous one like Iceland’s, which is based on the fact that although its mainland is not within the Arctic Circle, the Circle does pass through Grimsey Island, about 25 kilometres north of Iceland’s north coast. Britain’s Shetland Islands, its northernmost land, are 713 kilometres (443 miles) south of the Arctic Circle.

So why does the UK declare that it has “interests” in the Arctic and that the region is “in our back yard”? How can it possibly feel threatened?

The Arctic Institute observed in February 2018 that Russia’s “newer Arctic strategy papers focus on preventing smuggling, terrorism, and illegal immigration instead of balancing military power with NATO. These priorities suggest that Russia’s security aims in the Arctic have to do with safeguarding the Arctic as a strategic resource base... In general, the government-approved documents seem to have moved from an assertive tone that highlights Russia’s rivalry with NATO to a less abrasive tone based on securing economic development.”

And economic development is what it’s all about. On September 28 “it was reported that “a Danish-flagged cargo ship successfully passed through the Russian Arctic in a trial voyage showing that melting sea ice could potentially open a new trade route from Europe to east Asia.” It is obviously in the best economic interests of the European Union and Russia that the route be developed for commercial transit. To do this requires avoidance of conflict in the region.

So what’s your problem, Defence Minister Williamson?

In August Britain’s Parliamentary Defence Committee published On Thin Ice: UK Defence in the Arctic which concluded that “There is little doubt that the Arctic and the High North are seeing an increasing level of military activity. There is much greater divergence in the evidence we have taken on what the reasons behind this are, particularly in relation to Russia. One view is that there is no offensive intent behind Russia’s military build-up and that it is simply trying to regenerate military capacity in order to reassert sovereignty. The opposite view is that this is just one more part of Russia’s aggressive reassertion of great power competition.”

The Danish Government told the Committee that “Presently, Denmark sees no need for an increased military engagement or enhanced operative role for NATO in the Arctic”, and the Swedish Ambassador said “The Swedish Arctic is a limited part of Swedish territory. We are more a Baltic Sea nation than an Arctic nation... Obviously, the whole area around the Arctic, in particular the Kola Peninsula, is of strategic importance to Russia and they have a serious military presence there. We see all of that. Is that reason to call it militarisation of the Arctic?”

In January Reuters reported that China had notified its Arctic strategy, “pledging to work more closely with Moscow in particular to create an Arctic maritime counterpart — a ‘Polar Silk Road’ — to its ‘one belt, one road’ overland trade route to Europe. Both the Kremlin and Beijing have repeatedly stated that their ambitions are primarily commercial and environmental, not military.” It couldn’t be plainer that Russia and China want the Arctic to be a profitable mercantile trade route, while Russia wants to continue exploration for oil, gas and mineral deposits, which are important for its economy.

To develop the Arctic requires peace and stability. It would be impossible to reap the benefits of the new sea-route and potentially enormous energy and mineral riches if there were to be conflict in the North. It is obviously in the best interests of Russia and China that there be tranquillity rather than military confrontation.

But Britain’s Defence Minister insists there must be a military build-up by the UK in the Arctic “If we want to be protecting our interests in what is effectively our own back yard.” He is backed by the Parliament’s Defence Committee which states that “NATO’s renewed focus on the North Atlantic is welcome and the Government should be congratulated on the leadership the UK has shown on this issue.”

NATO is always on the lookout for excuses to indulge in military action (such as its nine–month blitz that destroyed Libya), and has announced it will conduct Arctic-focussed Exercise Trident Juncture in November, which Naval Today noted will be “one of the largest ever with 40,000 personnel, around 120 aircraft and as many as 70 ships converging in Norway.”

The NATO military alliance is preparing for war in the Arctic, and deliberately confronting Russia by conducting manoeuvres ever-closer to its borders. It had better be very careful.

          SEK stays vigilant on politics – Danske Bank      Cache   Translate Page      

Christin Tuxen, Chief Analyst at Danske Bank, gives her views on the Swedish political scenario and the Krona.

Key Quotes

EUR/SEK edged higher after Ulf Kristersson said that the door to form an Alliance government with support from Social Democrats (SD) is closed. The announcement just underlines how difficult it is to form a government in Sweden; this is set to continue until 16 October”.

“That said, even when a government has been formed, the next challenge (trickier) is to get a budget through the Riksdag; a new election might be avoided in the end, though it is far from certain”.

今日我們談丹麥、挪威和瑞典這三個國家,通常離不開福利高、生活好與烏托邦這些話題,而且我們都知道她們是關係非常好的友邦。不過,正如英國作家G.K.切斯特頓 (G.K. Chesterton) 所言:「聖經叫我們愛鄰舍,也叫我們愛敵人,應該是因為他們通常是同一群人。」作為鄰國,其實她們之間少不免有一段血腥的歷史。

內亂四起

維京時代結束後,北歐三國都陷入內亂之中。在挪威,雖然國家在 872 年已經統一,但國王一直未能訂立清晰的繼承法,繼承者有時是依靠貴族的支持,有時是憑力量奪位。發生爭議的時候,甚至會有數人分享權力。1130 年,挪威國王「十字軍戰士」西居爾一世 (Sigurd I ‘the Crusader’) 逝世,引發起西居爾的兒子馬格努斯 (Magnus IV Sigurdsson) 和西居爾的弟弟哈拉爾 (Harald Gille) 之間的繼承戰爭。戰爭未有隨兩人過世而終結,因為他們的子孫總是繼承了他們的未竟之志,結果內戰竟然持續足足一百年。終於,在 1240 年,於哈康四世 (Haakon IV) 的領導下,他的對手在戰事中陣亡,其他貴族的叛亂亦一一被平息,內戰才告結束。哈康四世在天主教廷的支持下,採納了其他天主教國家所使用的長子繼承法,終於為繼承權紛爭劃上句號。

至於瑞典,也同樣處於數個家族爭奪王位的時期。1125 年,瑞典國王小英格 (Inge the Younger) 逝世,丹麥王室阿斯特里德松家族 (House of Estridsen) 的馬格努斯一世 (Magnus I Nilsson) 和斯渥克爾一世 (Sverker I ‘the Elder’) 一同稱王。雖然馬格努斯在1134年的內戰中戰死,但斯渥克爾卻未能鞏固家族的權力。他在 1156 年被刺殺以後,另一家族的艾里克獲貴族選為艾里克九世 (Eric IX ‘the Holy’),斯渥克爾家族和艾里克家族長期的權力鬥爭和王位繼承權之爭由此開始 [1]。1250 年,在斯渥克爾和艾里克兩個家族都絕嗣後,比耶博家族 (House of Bjelbo) 的瓦爾德瑪 (Valdemar) 憑藉與兩個家族都有血緣關係,獲選為瑞典國王,才把國家重新統一。儘管這段時期的瑞典內憂不斷,但每任國王都會視對外擴張為「政績」,因而未有停下擴張的步伐。瑞典的勢力範圍於是擴張至諾爾蘭(Norrland,今瑞典北部)及芬蘭的沿海地區。14 世紀初,瑞典國王馬格努斯四世 (Magnus IV of Sweden) 更繼承挪威王位,雖然他在1364年被篡奪瑞典王位,但他留下的血脈依然影響深遠。

而在丹麥,反倒在十二至十三世紀擁有一段相對統一的時期,因此得以用其稱霸海洋的傳統,把波美拉尼亞(Pomerania,今德國及波蘭北部)和愛沙尼亞納入其統治之下。雖然王位沒有太大爭端,但國王卻與貴族與教會關係惡劣,王權、教權及地方權力之間的拉扯,最終在十三世紀末導致王權沒落。在克里斯多夫二世 (Christopher II) 在位時期 (1319–1332),王權跌至最低點,丹麥爆發多次農民起義,教會和貴族又豁免繳稅,導致國家瀕臨破產,國家大部份領地都由地方領主全權統治,國王毫無實權。克里斯多夫死後,更有八年的時間王位懸空,各領主直接統治國家。1340 年,攝政貴族的頭領格哈德三世 (Gerhard III, Count of Holstein-Rendsburg) 被殺,克里斯多夫的兒子瓦爾德瑪四世 (Valdemar IV of Denmark) 趁機回國,獲選為王,他用了整整二十年的時間重新征服全國國土 [2],地方分治的局面才告一段落。

改變北歐的女子——瑪格麗特

瓦爾德瑪四世身後留下兩個女兒,梅克倫堡公爵夫人英娥柏格 (Ingeborg of Denmark, Duchess of Mecklenburg) 和挪威王后瑪格麗特 (Margaret, Queen of Norway)。當時在丹麥,雖然女性並無繼承權,但她們的兒子仍可繼承王位,而且最終是由貴族選舉決定。

儘管如此,瑪格麗特在 1375 年,趁瓦爾德瑪剛剛逝世,乘近水樓台之機,搶先要丹麥貴族選其五歲的兒子為丹麥國王奧拉夫二世 (Olaf II Haakonsson),瑪格麗特成為攝政王后,掌握實權。加冕大典上,瑪格麗特更堅持為奧拉夫加上「瑞典真正王位繼承人 (true heir of Sweden)」的頭銜(先前提到被篡位的瑞典國王馬格努斯四世,是奧拉夫的爺爺),以圖染指瑞典國土。五年後,奧拉夫的父親,挪威國王哈康六世 (Haakon VI of Norway) 逝世,奧拉夫繼承王位。

瑪格麗特掌政期間,把丹麥和挪威兩國都治理得井井有條,更把先前丹麥內亂時期失去的最後領土都成功收服。1387年,17歲的奧拉夫急病去世。雖然失去作為國王的兒子,一般代表著同時失去攝政的合法性。不過,瑪格麗特憑有目共睹的治國才能,竟讓丹麥和挪威的貴族破例,將其再次選為攝政。

卡爾馬聯盟

同一時間,瑞典則陷入內部分裂之中。自馬格努斯四世被推翻後,貴族把阿爾伯特 (Albert, King of Sweden) 推上王位。但是,來自梅克倫堡的阿爾伯特,極度偏袒德意志人,在瑞典各地都任命德意志官員,導致瑞典上下非常不滿。1388年,阿爾伯特下令收回部份貴族領地,終於令各地領主按捺不住。瑞典議會向瑪格麗特求助,更把她選為「最高領主及統治者 (Sovereign Lady and Ruler)」,並且接受她所欽點的任何繼承人為國王。次年,阿爾伯特兵敗被俘,瑪格麗特正式把瑞典納入其統治之下。

這時的瑪格麗特,始終需要為她的大帝國找來一個繼承人。她自己沒有子嗣,於是選擇了姐姐的外孫,8 歲的艾里克 (Eric of Pomerania),將他收為養子。 1389 年,他獲選為挪威國王艾里克三世。 1396 年,丹麥和瑞典也正式冊立其為丹麥國王艾里克七世和瑞典國王艾里克十三世。 1397 年,艾里克的三國加冕大典在瑞典的卡爾馬 (Kalmar) 舉行,這個北歐三國的聯盟,因此稱為卡爾馬聯盟 (Kalmar Union)。

不過,瑪格麗特繼續掌有實權,即使艾里克成年後依然如是,直至瑪格麗特在 1412 年逝世,終年 59 歲。她被視為北歐其中一位最偉大的「君主」,把北歐三國聯合為一個強大的整體。雖然她在生時所使用的頭銜都十分含糊——在早期所用的是「全丹麥王國的最高領主和守護者 (sovereign lady and lord and guardian of the entire kingdom of Denmark)」[3],之後卻只稱「攝政 (regent)」——但無論如何,當現任丹麥女王瑪格麗特在 1972 年登基,成為丹麥史上第一位正式繼承王位的女性時,她特地選擇了「瑪格麗特二世 (Margrethe II)」這稱號,並把瑪格麗特王后稱為「一世」,以示承認其君主地位。

至於艾里克,由 8 歲即位開始,就受到最好的教育,被培養成為全北歐的統治者。 1429 年,他在在連接大西洋和波羅的海的松德海峽( Øresund,至今仍然是世界最繁忙的河道之一)設立了關稅;此項稅收成為數百年來丹麥政府的一大收入來源,甚至曾經高達國家收入的三分之二。直至 1857 年,在多個海上強權的聯手施壓下,此關稅才被迫取消。

諷刺的是,艾里克在位後期,在多場戰爭及起義困擾之下,三國貴族都逐漸對他失去信心。此時艾里克竟然憤而「罷工」,出走到波羅的海中的哥特蘭島 (Gotland)。貴族們也不甘示弱,選出艾里克的外甥克里斯多夫 (Christopher of Bavaria) 為新任國王。艾里克此後十年都留在哥特蘭,當上了海盜,以掠劫波羅的海的商船為生。

瑞典憤而獨立

不過,如同歷史上很多聯邦一樣,卡爾馬聯盟很快遇到權力分配不均的問題。事實上,有些史家認為問題源於瑪格麗特,指她由聯盟的開始,已經頗為偏重丹麥,只是她能夠憑藉過人的能力和聲譽穩住人心而已。無論如何,卡爾馬聯盟不再有一位國王及得上她的政治才能,確是事實。

瑞典對於國王一直偏袒丹麥的利益,越見不滿,最終在貴族古斯塔夫·瓦薩 (Gustav Vasa) 的領導下,爆發獨立戰爭 (Swedish War of Liberation, 1521–23)。兩年戰爭過後,瑞典軍隊基本上已經控制全國。1523 年,古斯塔夫獲選為瑞典國王,開始了瑞典的瓦薩王朝,卡爾馬聯盟亦隨之瓦解。至於丹麥和挪威兩國,則繼續保持友好的共主邦聯關係,一般合稱為「丹麥—挪威 (Denmark-Norway)」,直至十九世紀邦聯瓦解。

下篇文章,我們將繼續北歐的近代歷史,談談她們最終怎樣成為今日的丹麥、挪威、瑞典、芬蘭和冰島這幾個獨立的國家。

註:

[1] 如果大家要理解這個瑞典王位爭奪得有多激烈,只需要看看這段時期的國王的命運: 1160 年艾里克九世在一間教堂外被阿斯特里德松家族的馬格努斯二世 (Magnus II) 謀殺、1161 年馬格努斯二世在與斯渥克爾家族的查理七世 (Charles VII) 之間的內戰戰死、 1167 年查理七世被艾里克九世的兒子克努特 (Canute I Ericson) 所殺。之後的瑞典國王雖然少有被殺,但王位仍然是在斯渥克爾和艾里克兩個家族之間輪換。
[2] 一般相信,同時期爆發的黑死病 (Black Death) 很有可能大大幫助了瓦爾德瑪的戰事。
[3] 注意英語中特地同時使用男性的 lord 和女性的 lady ,以示她擁有一般而言男性才擁有的統治權。

          Celebrating Cucumber's 10th birthday with a 9.5 hour mob programming session      Cache   Translate Page      

This weekend marked the 10th anniversary of Cucumber's first release, and we decided to celebrate with an open invitation to our community to join a mob programming session.

The stats

We started at 4pm GMT and finished around 1:30am GTM. We were joined by 11 people over the course of the evening:

  • Aslak Hellesøy (London, USA)
  • Matt Wynne (Lochgoilhead, Scotland)
  • Eric K (Ohio, USA)
  • Marit van Dijk (Amstelveen, Netherlands)
  • Björn Rasmusson (Linköping, Sweden)
  • Ed Snodgrass (Iowa, USA)
  • Jayson Smith (Arizona, USA)
  • Thomas Sundberg (Stockholm, Sweden (from Bucharest tonight))
  • Sal Freudenberg (Somerset, UK)
  • Amitai Schleier (Nanuet, Rockland County, NY USA)
  • Woody Zuill (Copenhagen, Denmark)

We made around 30 commits across the various Cucumber repos, and made a pre-release of cucumber-ruby 4.0.0.

I wrote some Go code for the first time, and we all learned a lot about the new architecture that's coming to Cucumber over the next few months.

The lessons

What worked

Mobbing works! None of us were present for the entire session, yet there was a continuous stream of problem-solving going on for the entire nine and a half hours. People dropped off to cook meals, put kids to bed, then came back. Because we were spread across timezones, this was even more useful - when it was kids' bedtime in the Netherlands, it was mid-afternoon in Arizona.

Having a goal for the session helped a great deal, and we quickly reached agreement about what to focus on. Aslak had done his homework ahead of time and we had a nice small problem to get our teeth into. We used a shared Google Doc to sketch out a shared plan, including a diagram of the new architecture we'd be working with.

We had plenty of experts on hand - Aslak and Björn for example were invaluable in sharing their deep knowledge of the codebase and the direction it's headed in.

The anniversary mobathon was an absolutely fantastic time and I would love to do it more! Driving the code changes while having the guidance of folks already familiar with the code enabled me to do things for the first time (like release various Cucumber Ruby gems) that I wouldn't have been able to on my own. What a wonderful experience in so many ways! -- Jason Smith

Driving was a great experience for me. I'm rusty with my OSS contributions, and I've never written any Go before. It was fun trying it out with so many experts around to guide me, and in such a friendly supportive and fun atmosphere.

Puzzles

I think we could have done a better job of making sure there was an easy environment that made it more possible for everyone to participate and take their turn on the code. For another time I'd like to experiment with a remote coding environment like Eclipse Che or something. If you have any suggestions for that I'd love to hear them in the comments.

I wonder how much the implicit power dynamic of being around such experienced people as Aslak and I made it too intimidating for some people to take the keyboard. Although I felt relaxed and supported fumbing around writing my first Go code, was that the same for everyone there?

We didn't make much of an effort to publicise this event beforehand. I originally had notions of trying to make a world record attempt but I just got too busy to try and sort it out.

I still have a crazy idea that, with enough people, you could run a mob 24 hours a day. Would you be able to get enough people spread across enough timezones? I'd love to give it a try.

Would you like to be part of the next one?

          Paul Pogba back to friendly environment with France      Cache   Translate Page      

PARIS — Far away seem the days when Paul Pogba was praised for the mature displays that helped France win the World Cup.

For the Manchester United midfielder, the euphoria that engulfed French players following their title lasted only a few weeks as he fell out with coach Jose Mourinho on his return to Old Trafford.

Pogba's relationship with Mourinho has been complicated since his return to United in 2016. But it reached its nadir last month when Pogba was stripped of the vice-captaincy at the club and then appeared to have a spat with Mourinho at practice.

Following a poor start to the season, United is under pressure and Pogba's future there seems uncertain amid reports he could leave.

Such concerns are irrelevant when Pogba plays with his national team, and the international break is likely to provide solace to a player regarded as indispensable by France coach Didier Deschamps.

Pogba joined his teammates at France's training ground ahead of Thursday's friendly game against Iceland. France, which beat Croatia in the World Cup final in July, hosts Germany in the UEFA Nations League on Oct. 16 at Stade de France.

"I don't want to interfere with the relationship that he, or any other player, could have with his coach," Deschamps said. "But given the situation of some (players) in their clubs, the breath of fresh air brought by the France team can do them good."

Often criticized for his laid-back approach, Pogba took more responsibilities in France during the World Cup and is now regarded as a proper team leader. Pogba is crediting Deschamps, who uses him on the pitch in a less restricted role than Mourinho, for his positive influence.

"I have a very good relationship with the coach, he speaks straight to me," Pogba said.

Here is a look at other talking points ahead of this week's international matches:

EMPTY STADIUM

The last time Croatia played England was in the packed Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow in a World Cup semifinal match. When they meet in the Croatian coastal city of Rijeka on Friday, there will be no fans.

Croatia is completing a stadium ban imposed by UEFA in 2015 when a swastika was painted on its field ahead of a game.

STRUGGLING ITALY

Italy is in desperate need of a victory at Poland on Sunday to avoid more embarrassment after failing to qualify for the last World Cup.

The Azzurri already sit last in its Nations League group with only one point and one goal scored from their opening two matches — a 1-1 draw with Poland and a 1-0 loss to Portugal.

Napoli's Lorenzo Insigne is being tapped for a "false 9" role amid a series of problems for the usual center forwards.

Mario Balotelli and Andrea Belotti have been dropped due to poor form while Ciro Immobile and Simone Zaza have struggled with the national team.

FALLEN CHAMPS REBUILD

Germany is still searching for its way back after its disastrous World Cup defense in Russia. Joachim Loew's squad drew 0-0 with France last month in a game in Munich that did little to assure fans it will be challenging again for titles anytime soon.

If anything, the game just highlighted the absence of Mesut Ozil, who retired from international football after feeling he was made the scapegoat for the German team's disappointing performances in Russia. While Loew wanted his side to display more defensive stability, it failed to convince going forward.

Loew experimented with five changes in the subsequent 2-1 friendly win over Peru, but the pressure is on to show real progress is being made in the games against the Netherlands and France.

REPLACING RONALDO

With Cristiano Ronaldo out again, Portugal's attack will be relying on Andre Silva, the Sevilla striker who has been thriving in the Spanish league.

Silva, playing on a loan from AC Milan, has seven goals in eight league matches so far. Silva scored Portugal's winner in the 1-0 win over Italy in the team's Nations League debut and is set to start in the match at Poland on Friday. Ronaldo hasn't played for Portugal since the World Cup and isn't expected to be back until next year.

DEPLETED SPAIN

Spain will be depleted when it hosts England on Monday with a chance to practically secure a spot in the Nations League's final four.

Some key players will be absent because of injuries, including Francisco "Isco" Alarcon, Dani Carvajal, Sergi Roberto and Diego Costa.

BEST OF THE REST

Russia returns to Sochi, where the World Cup host lost a quarterfinals penalty shootout against Croatia, to play Turkey on Sunday in Group 2 of League B. Russia first hosts Sweden in Kaliningrad on Thursday.

In B3, Bosnia-Herzegovina goes for a third straight when Northern Ireland visits on Monday.

In League C, Group 4 co-leaders Montenegro and Serbia meet in Podgorica on Thursday. The Balkan neighbors joined together as one team at the 2006 World Cup.

In League D, teams with two wins last month include Georgia which next hosts Andorra, Luxembourg playing at Belarus, and Macedonia hosting Liechtenstein.

One of the longest journeys in European soccer faces Azerbaijan — about 4,400 kilometers (2,750 miles) to play at the Faroe islands on Thursday.

          NATO flexes muscles in show of strength to Russia      Cache   Translate Page      
NATO’s largest exercise since the end of the Cold War will see 50,000 troops deploy into the first snows of a Norwegian winter to show Russia that the alliance is ready to repel any attack, officers said Tuesday. Officially, November’s Trident Juncture exercise will simulate an attack from a fictional country, but it will bring a huge force into one of Moscow’s neighbors just months after Russia’s vast Vostok war games. The head of NATO’s Allied Joint Force Command, U.S. Navy Admiral James Foggo, said that the exercise “must show NATO is capable to defend against any adversary. Not a particular country, anyone.” And he noted that Norway has a frontier with Russia and that the huge force, backed by 150 aircraft, 60 ships and some 10,000 vehicles, would demonstrate that they can mobilize quickly to defend an ally. “The core exercise area is 1,000 kilometers from the Russian border,” said Norwegian General Rune Jakobsen, who will run the exercise headquarters. “There should not be any reason for the Russians to get scared or see this as anything other than a defensive exercise.” Two Russian and two Belarus military observers have been invited to watch the maneuvers. These will be the biggest such movement of NATO personnel and vehicles since at least the 1991 collapse of the Soviet Union, although smaller than the Vostok-18 exercise staged by Russia and China last month. The Western allies have stepped up their military posture, with rotating garrisons in eastern Europe and the Baltic States, in the four years since Russia annexed the Ukrainian region of Crimea. Exercises like Trident Juncture 18 are designed to teach troops how to move a large force quickly in the event of an invasion against a NATO member triggering the allies’ “Article 5” mutual defense clause. German brigade The first part of this year’s exercise will simulate an effort to halt an offensive launched from northern Norway southwards by part of the force playing an adversary, Canadian General Christian Juneau told AFP. Once the “invader” is halted, the second stage will see NATO forces figuring out how to force it back. While the exercise is designed to show the 29-nation alliance’s unity and strength, it may also bring Western forces face-to-face with some of their own shortcomings. U.S. President Donald Trump has criticized many of the allies for underspending on defense and in February a German parliamentary report found that its own military has outdated equipment, often in a state of disrepair. Officers in NATO headquarters share the concerns, but Juneau told AFP that Germany would contribute a 6,000-strong brigade to the exercise and that the bulk of its troops and vehicles are already in Norway. The rest of the buildup is expected to be complete by October 25, with forces from across Europe and North America arriving by sea and by plane on the alliance’s northern flank. The British contingent will land in Europe in the Netherlands and make its way to Norway by road through Germany, Denmark and Sweden to test the alliance’s ability to coordinate transport on civilian roads. Once in Norway, the multinational force will conduct multinational training exercises — dealing with traffic and the first snows of winter — and the main invasion exercise.
          Why Andreas Granqvist is more popular than Zlatan Ibrahimovic in Sweden and could join Man United      Cache   Translate Page      
ESPN FC's Paul Mariner believes the ball is in Zlatan Ibrahimovic's court when it comes to the rumours linking him with a loan move to Milan. To honour Zlatan Ibrahimovic's 500th career goal, the LA Galaxy decided to distribute a commemorative #Zlatan500 poster to the first 10,000 fans who arrive at their match against the Vancouver Whitecaps. Jose Mourinho once had Zlatan Ibrahimovic to help him out at Manchester United. Nowadays, his attention has reportedly switched to another Swedish veteran, Andreas Granqvist, who is rumoured to be a target&nbsp;ahead of the January transfer window. "I am not closing any doors, and flattered to even be linked with such a big team," the 33-year-old defender&nbsp;told Expressen from Helsingborg where he plays in the second division.

As queen of France, Marie Antoinette became a baton of appearance – but as a 14-year-old Austrian archduchess she committed a appearance faux pas on the day she affiliated the approaching King Louis XVI in the aristocratic abbey at the Palace of Versailles in 1770.

Strict agreement absolute bells accoutrements for the helpmate of a French beneficiary to the throne: a cloth-of-silver dress. Unfortunately, the bride’s growing anatomy was not taken into annual aback the dress was advised and so the consistent bodice was too small, acceptation that Marie Antoinette’s associates were clumsy to adhere the aback of the gown. According to Elizabeth Seymour Percy, Amazon of Northumberland, there was “quite a ample band of lacing and about-face absolutely visible, which had a bad aftereffect amid two broader stripes of chunk [the closing of which were a allowance from Marie Antoinette’s mother, Empress Maria Theresa of the Habsburg Empire].”

In accession to the billowing dress, Marie Antoinette’s approaching beautician Léonard Autié advised the bride’s strawberry-blonde beard “badly arranged” for the occasion. The comment, accounting in his journal, may accept reflected his animosity with the beautician Sieur Larsenneur, who styled Marie Antoinette’s beard on the day of her bells in a low, delicate upsweep adorned with adorning gems. Léonard autonomous for added busy hairstyles for Marie Antoinette aback he afterwards became her hairdresser.

Despite the appearance faux pas on her bells day, queen Marie Antoinette adherent abundant efforts to her accessible image. Her milliner (hatter) Rose Bertin and beautician Léonard became accepted as the queen’s ‘Ministers of Fashion’, ambience precedents for approaching celebrity stylists. But Marie Antoinette’s acceptability for absurdity (as able-bodied as her Austrian origins) contributed to her unpopularity. The French Revolution bankrupt out in 1789; the French absolution was baffled in 1792; and Marie Antoinette was accomplished by decollate in 1793, a few months afterwards her husband.

When Queen Victoria’s mother, Angel Victoire of Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld, affiliated King George III’s fourth son – Prince Edward, Battle of Kent and Strathearn – in 1818, she was dressed in an busy cloth-of-gold gown. This followed the attitude of Hanoverian brides, who wore cloister dress or aristocratic apparel on their bells day. And aback Queen Victoria’s accessory Angel Charlotte affiliated the approaching Leopold I of Belgium on 2 May 1816, the helpmate wore a bright ensemble of “silver absolutist on net, over a argent tissue slip, abstract at the basal with argent absolutist in shells and flowers”. The dress, which is the ancient British aristocratic bells clothes that survives to this day, additionally boasted “manteaux [a apart sleeveless blind or shawl]… of argent tissue lined with white satin, with a bound of adornment to acknowledgment that on the dress.”

But in 1840, for her bells to Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha in St James’s Palace, the adolescent Queen Victoria ancient from Hanoverian cloister attitude by cutting a analogously simple bells dress of white cottony glassy akin with applique and orange blossoms. Victoria declared her dress and jewels in her journal: “I wore a white glassy dress, with a abysmal camp of Honiton lace, an apery of an old design. My jewels were my Turkish architecture chaplet & earrings & baby Albert’s admirable azure brooch.”

Technically, Queen Victoria was not the aboriginal aristocratic helpmate to opt for white – Mary, Queen of Scots wore white on her aboriginal bells day (when she affiliated the approaching King Francois II of France, in 1558). Queen Victoria’s best of bells dress, however, captured the accepted acuteness and aggressive added brides to accept white bells dresses – a trend that continues today.

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}

          Comment on Why do we tax income instead of wealth? by coldblow      Cache   Translate Page      
Deco From Peter Hitchens: "But here comes the kick to the groin: Michael Booth concludes that Swedish Social Democracy 'was driven by one single, over-arching goal; to sever the traditional, some would say natural, ties between its citizens, be they those that bound children to their parents, workers to their employers, wives to their husbands or the elderly to their families. Instead, individuals were encouraged - mostly by financial incentive or disincentive, but also through legislation, propaganda and social pressure - to ‘take their place in the collective’, as one commentator rather ominously put it, and become dependent on the government’. "But he notes that this can also be truthfully described as liberating Swedish citizens from each other allowing them to become autonomous entities. "But of course (and this conclusion is mainly me) they are only autonomous within the embrace of the strong state, which substitutes itself for family, employer and all other social ties, and seizes most of their wealth in return for requiring a loyalty and submission as great as any imposed in feudal times, in return for ‘social protection’. Thus did the peasant whose hovel lay in the shadow of his Lord's castle offer up his fealty in return for safety. "He quotes the Swedish author Henrik Berggren: "‘The Swedish system is best understood not in terms of socialism but in terms of Rousseau…Rousseau was an extreme egalitarian and he really hated any kind of dependence – depending on other people destroyed your integrity, your authenticity – therefore the ideal situation was one where every citizen was an atom separated from all the other atoms…The Swedish system’s logic is that it is dangerous to be dependent on other people, to be beholden to other people. Even to your family’. "Egalitarianism, the unshakeable dogma of our time, set loose in the 18th century by the French Revolution, and still prowling to and fro, seeking whom it may devour, even now ruining the educations of thousands of children near you, far more enduring and persistent than its close relatives, socialism and communism. Why cannot reasonable conservatism defeat it once and for all? "There’s an interesting mention here of the fact that Germany (probably one of the last socially conservative, pro-family major states in the world, thoiugh for how much longer?) funnels its welfare through the family, whereas Sweden's state provides its largesse directly to the individual, bypassing family. "And here was the blinding light. Here was where the stern paternal authoritarianism of modern egalitarianism met the stroppy 'libertarian' individualism of the post-1960s generations. There was no conflict. There was in fact an alliance. "I had a major epiphany in 1990-91, living in Moscow, when I realised that the real profound difference between Soviet life and my own life up till then in the Britain which existed between 1950 and 1990, was that in the USSR the state was ferociously strong and the married family (what was left of it) broken and weak, and that this was deliberate and conscious. The other differences, in state ownership of the economy and even in personal liberty, were superficial compared with this. In fact, it seemed to me that the state’s demand for mental submission was part of its war on private life and family life, rather than the other way round. Hence my near-obsession with the sinister cult (barely noticed by most foreign visitors to the USSR) of Pavlik Morozov, the mythical child revered by the Communist state for denouncing his own parents to the secret police. "And when I came, a few years later, to write my book The Abolition of Britain and several subsequent books on the same general subject, it was this conflict between private life and the married family on one side and the cold, parental all-encompassing state that was the real battle. Who cared about nationalisation or trade unions? This was the issue, the conflict whose outcome would decide all our futures. "And then came the great and growing explosion of popular atheism, and the open surrender of the state to drugtaking. What were all these things about? Why, they were about personal autonomy. Their central slogan was ‘I can do what I like with my own body and nobody can stop me. How dare you tell me what I can do with it?’ "The paradox, well understood by Aldous Huxley, is that the person who proudly yells this battle cry also meekly accepts that in return he must surrender his mind, his privacy and his wealth to the power of the parental state. "In Michael Booth’s book, it all came together in an intentional, deliberate pattern. These things are connected. And it is the absence of the Christian conscience which makes them possible, and which is their enemy and rival. The new all-powerful parental state, the war against the married family, the scorn for conscience, the loud demand for personal autonomy and the rage against those who suggest it is in any way limited by morality or law, are all one cause, reborn in the West since the collapse of the USSR and advancing fast on all fronts. I saw it in Moscow and after my return from there, but instinctively. As so often, my instincts were right, and it has taken long years for my understanding and knowledge to catch up with them "When I was researching The Abolition of Britain, I often found that quotations in various books and articles were incredible. How could such and such a person have actually said anything so brutally honest and thus so risky to his or her own cause? So I would nervously track them down to their sources, and was repeatedly amazed to find them accurate. It is one of the great joys of research. The one I was most amazed by, and the one I still wonder about, is about the parental state. As I wrote here some years ago: "‘Still to be found in the archives of The Times for February 1980 is a letter from Helen Brook, who spent much of her life obsessively pressing contraceptives first on unmarried women, then on schoolchildren. The triumph of her creepy beliefs has brought about [[Note, I would not now say this. I would say 'has been followed by'. But I did say it at the time]] a pandemic of unwanted pregnancies and abortions, the very things she claimed to be preventing. "‘She let her real aim be known when she wagged her finger warningly at those who dared get in her way, hissing: ‘From birth till death it is now the privilege of the parental State to take major decisions - objective, unemotional, the State weighs up what is best for the child.’ "She knew power was on her side. "When, back in 1967, she offered contraceptive 'help' to under-age girls - behind the backs of their parents and their GPs - most normal people viewed her actions as shocking. In 1995 (under a Tory government, of course) she got the CBE. Now her view is the law of the land.’ "And next?"

           Comment on I don’t need to forgive my enemies. by epoch2013       Cache   Translate Page      
NW Europe and Scandinavia is I1 territory, not I2. We have an I1 from LBK 5000 BCE in Hungary, and one from battle axe culture. I1 is thought to have come into existence around 27.000 years ago. However, current diversity is mostly thought to have been only 3 to 5.000 years old. That gives a window of opportunity to theorize it got spread by the same waves that spread R1b or R1a. Scandinavia has a sizable amount of R1a, ~25% in Norway, ~15% in Sweden and Denmark. Roughly speaking R1a is a Corded Ware marker (all but 1 CW samples are R1a) and R1b a Bell Beaker marker (All R in BB is R1b). And I1 a Germanic marker. Former Yugoslavia is a I2 hotspot with over 50% in some parts.

A good example is the Finnish war. Georg Magnus Sprengtporten, a Swede, betrayed his country to help Russia conquer Finland. There, his new colleagues included Dutch general Jan Pieter van Suchtelen and several Baltic Germans, none of whom let their Germanic-ness stop them from fighting for Slavic Russia against Germanic Sweden. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Finnish_War

          Malta drops eight places in UN sustainability ranking      Cache   Translate Page      

Malta’s progress in reaching its United Nations Sustainable Development Goal targets deteriorated with its ranking plummeting eight places, according to a global report. The data, produced in this year’s SDG Index and Dashboard report, published by Bertelmann Stiftung and economist Jeffrey Sachs’s Sustainable Development Solutions Network, puts Malta in the 30th place, down from 22nd last year. There were 156 countries studied, with public consultations held earlier in 2018, between April 30 and May 11. Each country was awarded a score out of 100, with Malta managing 74.2, down from 77 in 2017, sitting behind Italy, Spain, Germany, France, Hungary and other member states. Malta ranked just ahead of Slovakia and Croatia last year. This time, the performance of both eastern European countries improved, getting a higher score and a better rank than Malta’s. With a score of 85, Sweden secured the top spot while the Central African Republic, which only obtained a mere 37.7, was bottom of the list. The SDGs are a set of targets UN countries agreed to reach by 2030. They follow the Millennium Development Goals, a set of eight targets for improving the lives of the world’s poorest...

          Ahmad Sa’adat calls for all to join actions for Georges Abdallah in letter from Israeli prison      Cache   Translate Page      

Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network received the following statement from Ahmad Sa’adat, the imprisoned General Secretary of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, where he is held in Israeli prison. Sa’adat is encouraging all Palestinians and friends of Palestine to participate in the Week of Action to Free Georges Abdallah, taking place from 17-24 October. See the list of events and ways you can heed Sa’adat’s call and join the week of action below his statement:  On behalf of the prisoners of the Popular Front and the Palestinian prisoners’ movement, I extend our greetings and salutes to all those organizing for freedom for Georges Ibrahim Abdallah as he enters his 35th year inside French colonial jails. In particular, I urge the Palestinian and Arab masses and their liberation movements and all friends of Palestine and our struggle around the world to join in the Week of Action to Free Georges Ibrahim Abdallah, from October 17-24, organized by Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network and the international campaign to free Georges Abdallah. We urge all to march in Lannemezan on 20 October in the national march organized by the tireless comrades who struggle, day in and day out, for the freedom of comrade Georges and our freedom in Palestine. For us, inside Israeli prisons, Georges Abdallah is a fellow struggler and a fellow Palestinian prisoner. We call him “the General of the prisoners of the PFLP.” He is part of us – one with us in unity and common struggle. We feel his support and participation in our struggle across seas and through iron bars and prison walls. He returns meals with our hunger strikes, his heart beats for Palestine just as his politics centers its liberation, and he has spent decades imprisoned because of his commitment to the liberation of the Palestinian and Arab people. Indeed, Georges Abdallah is an icon of resistance. With his clear analysis and involvement in all struggles for justice inside France and around the world, he refuses all attempts to isolate and silence him. His case also shows quite clearly just how strongly U.S. and French imperialism are tied to Zionism and the colonization of Palestine. Just as the French state celebrates with the war criminal Netanyahu to inagurate a “France-Israel season” as his troops shoot down our people in Gaza as they march in the Great March of Return, we know that this is the same France that slaughtered 1.5 million Algerians in its colonial wars in the Arab world. And just as the people of Algeria defeated French colonialism after paying the highest price in blood and sacrifice for their freedom, we know that Georges Ibrahim Abdallah will win. And as the United States – itself a colonial settler state built on the genocide of Indigenous peoples and the enslavement of Black people – attempts to liquidate the Palestinian cause, erase our fundamental right to return and label our resistance as “terrorist,” it has repeatedly interfered to keep Georges Abdallah behind bars. From Condoleeza Rice to Hillary Clinton, consecutive Secretaries of State have demanded that our beloved freedom fighter be kept behind bars. Of course, this is no surprise. Imperialism and Zionism stand together to construct prisons, walls and war machines. From Greece to the Philippines to Turkey, political prisoners put their bodies on the line to fight back against capitalism and imperialism. In the Arab reactionary regimes that stand hand in hand with the United States, from Saudi Arabia to Morocco, we hear the calls of our fellow political prisoners, demanding justice and liberation. Between October 17 and 24, raise your voice against this injustice. Take to the streets, organize and act to demand freedom for Georges Abdallah and all political prisoners. The Palestinian prisoners are with you – we shout for the freedom of our comrade Georges Abdallah from the depths of the Zionist dungeons. Together, we can win the freedom of this beloved comrade, a leader of the Palestinian, Arab and international struggle for socialism and liberation. To stand with Georges Abdallah is to stand with the resistance, the Palestinian people and all those political prisoners struggling for freedom. Ahmad Sa’adat Ramon Prison 9 October 2018 TAKE ACTION: 1. Organize events, actions and protests at French embassies and consulates around the world.

          The Saudi Monarchy May Have Killed a Free Man      Cache   Translate Page      

Doug Bandow

Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi moved to the United States after he was pressured to stop criticizing Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s new authoritarian order. He explained his decision a year ago in the Washington Post : “I have left my home, my family and my job, and I am raising my voice. To do otherwise would betray those who languish in prison. I can speak when so many cannot.”

Khashoggi, who once advised members of the royal family, appears to have paid the ultimate price for living his principles. On Tuesday he entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Turkey, seeking to complete paperwork to facilitate his remarriage. He never exited. Alive, anyway.

The Saudi authorities insist that he had left and they also are looking for him. It first appeared likely that he had been kidnapped, a common tactic used by Riyadh against dissident princes and other critics. The Turkish police noted the departure of several diplomatic vehicles from the building, in which he could have been taken, drugged and/or bound. However, Ankara now concludes that Khashoggi was murdered by a special hit squad brought in for that purpose.

Did journalist Jamal Khashoggi fall prey to the tyrannical regime in Saudi Arabia?

Stated an anonymous official: “We believe that the murder was premeditated and the body was subsequently moved out of the consulate.” If true, Riyadh has dramatically escalated the war on its critics, many of whom, as Khashoggi related, currently languish in prison. However, having denied that the journalist is either at the consulate or in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the regime could not easily later release him from prison. And death certainly ends his criticism.

The KSA never has run on liberal principles. However, there long was some space for measured criticism, with liberals allowed to advocate reform. Khashoggi called it “a gentleman’s agreement” which resulted in a balance between what could and could not be published. However, that tolerance has disappeared under the reign of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, also known as MbS, who with his father has turned a brotherly monarchy into a family dictatorship.

Unfortunately, the crown prince’s long overdue social liberalization has been more than counterbalanced by imposition of political tyranny. Explained Khashoggi: “We started seeing more direct pressure on journalists to only publish pro-government stories. Some people were asked to sign loyalty pledges. Some people were banned from writing or had their columns taken down. Things got worse for the activists, too, or people with critical opinions. The government was sending a message that if you’re not with us, you’re against us.”

On his arrival in the United States Khashoggi wrote of “the fear, intimidation, arrest and public shaming of intellectuals and religious leaders who dare to speak their minds.” He noted “how breathtakingly fast you can fall out of favor with Saudi Arabia.” Repression is now “business as usual in my country.”

For instance, women activists long risked their freedom to push the government to lift the ban on women driving. In June MbS did so with great fanfare-while silencing and even arresting many of those who had advocated the change. Human Rights Watch referred to “an unrelenting crackdown on the women’s rights movement.” One unnamed activist admitted that “We used to think if we presented ourselves as allies to the government, wanting to work with them, we would be safe. But that changed after the rise of Mohammed bin Salman.”

The repressive wave washed over numerous pundits and clerics. Some were arrested not because they criticized Riyadh, but because they did not vigorously attack Qatar, which MbS sought to turn into a puppet state. In May Human Rights Watch reported that “Saudi Arabia is detaining thousands of people for more than six months, in some cases for over a decade, without referring them to courts for criminal proceedings.” The number of those so detained increased tenfold since May 2014.

Last year the crown prince jailed a couple hundred of the kingdom’s wealthy elite in a brutal financial shakedown, with the added benefit of discouraging opposition to his family’s coup against the old system. Most were freed after turning over a substantial amount of their wealth to MbS, though many remain barred from foreign travel. But even before that power development occurred Khashoggi being overseas offered no security from Riyadh’s reach. The BBC reported on three princes, Sultan bin Turki bin Abdulaziz, Prince Turki bin Bandar, and Prince Saud bin Saif al-Nasr, who had gone into exile and advocated reform, only to be kidnapped and returned to the KSA, where they were jailed (or possibly murdered). This practice has continued, with regime critics recently abducted in Kuwait and Lebanon.

Even the State Department had trouble finding anything nice to say about the repressive royals in its latest human rights report. Explained State: “The most significant human rights issues included unlawful killings, including execution for other than the most serious offenses and without requisite due process; torture; arbitrary arrest and detention, including of lawyers, human rights activists, and anti-government reformists; political prisoners; arbitrary interference with privacy; restrictions on freedom of expression, including on the internet, and criminalization of libel; restrictions on freedoms of peaceful assembly, association, movement, and religion; citizens’ lack of ability and legal means to choose their government through free and fair elections.”

Despite rumors of impending religious liberalization, so far the KSA sits atop the world, alongside North Korea, as a leading persecutor. Even Iran allows churches, temples, and synagogues to operate. But not Saudi Arabia. Even foreigners who gather in homes to worship face arrest. Years of financing fundamentalist Wahhabism around the globe have encouraged intolerance, hostility, and hatred of non-Muslims. Shiites also are a persecuted minority in the KSA, even facing death for protesting their discriminatory status.

With such a dreadful record, the Saudi royals have become a bit, shall we say, touchy about criticism of their behavior. After the Canadian government urged release of women’s rights activists, Riyadh expelled Canada’s ambassador, dropped pending contracts in Canada, and withdrew students from Canadian universities. The KSA also demanded an apology for having pointed out its crimes. The KSA similarly targeted Sweden and Germany for equally modest comments on the repressive royals.

That MbS does not employ violence against his international critics reflects lack of reach, not ambition. His foreign policy is both brutal and reckless. For instance, last year the Saudi government essentially kidnapped visiting Lebanese prime minister Saad Harari, a Sunni long allied with Riyadh, and forced him to announce his resignation. The resulting international furor caused his release, after which he returned to his duties.

Angry with Qatar for providing sanctuary for critics of the KSA, Riyadh (along with the United Arab Emirates) launched a campaign to isolate Doha. The terror-friendly Saudi government, home to fifteen of nineteen 9/11 hijackers and financier of Islamic fundamentalism worldwide, present its action as an attack on terrorism. However, MbS was most irritated with Qatar-funded Al Jazeera, which criticized the Saudi royals. The KSA planned to invade its small neighbor, backing away only under U.S. pressure and Turkish intervention.

In 2015 the Saudis launched an aggressive war against Yemen to restore to power the pliable Abdu Rabbu Mansour Hadi, who had been ousted in the latest iteration of decades of civil war and internal strife. An expected two-week war stretched into more than three years, with thousands of Yemeni civilians killed by Saudi airstrikes. The Saudis (and Emiratis) underwrote Islamic radicals in the fight against Houthi rebels. Iran took advantage of Riyadh’s bloody overreach to support the opposition, bleeding the KSA.

Saudi Arabia also backed the repressive el-Sisi government and Khalifa monarchy in Egypt and Bahrain, respectively. Riyadh even sent troops to help the latter suppress the Shia majority, which sought democratic freedoms from their Sunni overlords. Moreover, the KSA funded the most radical insurgents in Syria, largely abandoning the fight against the Islamic State in favor of its ill-fated Yemeni campaign. Riyadh has become the most brutal, destabilizing force in the Persian Gulf.

These policies are undermining MbS’s professed commitment to economic reform. Wealthy Saudis have been running for the exits with their cash and foreigners have stopped investing. Last year the KSA received less foreign direct investment than politically and economically unstable Jordan and oil-poor Oman. Instead of forging a reputation as a decisive leader, the crown prince increasingly looks like “an impulsive authoritarian, prone to temper tantrums and flights of irrational decisionmaking,” in the words of John Hannah, senior counselor for the Foundation for Defense of Democracies.

However, President Donald Trump appeared to fall under MbS’s influence after visiting Riyadh last year, where the president received a royal welcome-even awkwardly joining the “sword dance” and peering into the orb, called the “eye of Sauron” by some wits, at the “anti-terrorism” center. The crown prince recently said of Trump: “I love working with him. I really like working with him and we have achieved a lot in the Middle East.”

What is there for the crown prince not to like? The United States has armed him and given him a blank check to run amok in the Mideast. Moreover, the administration’s proposed “Arab NATO” would cement Saudi domination, forcing the three independent Gulf States, Qatar, Oman, and Kuwait, into Riyadh’s orbit. And the administration, so vocal about Iran’s human-rights violations, has said nothing about the far more tyrannical regime in Saudi Arabia.

President Trump, who recently expressed his “love” for MbS, cynically sold U.S. policy to Riyadh. The president recently urged Riyadh to purchase even more weapons and push down oil prices, in recompense for America’s campaign against Tehran, the KSA’s only serious regional rival. In this way the administration sold its soul to the Saudi royals.

But now the crown prince looks like a common murderer. Khashoggi’s apparent killing should be a step too far even for Washington. If Iran committed such an act, then the administration would lead an angry global chorus against the Islamist regime. The United States should do the same against Riyadh.

Jamal Khashoggi was both good and brave, committed to a freer Saudi Arabia. That MbS and his confederates would kill such a man tells Americans all they need to know about their nominal ally. The Trump administration should loosen its embrace of a regime so antithetical to America’s most basic values and interests.

          Meat processing firm HKScan to sack 165 workers      Cache   Translate Page      

Meat and food producer HKScan will terminate 165 jobs following the co-operation negotiations launched in June.

The terminations will affect the company’s production and logistics facilities in Vantaa, Forssa, Mikkeli, Paimio and Outokumpu. In the largest unit in Vantaa 72 workers will lose their jobs while 55 positions will be cut in Forssa.

In addition, seasonally-based layoffs in some locations will take place outside of the Christmas ham and summer grilling seasons.

“We got plenty of valuable insights and suggestions from employee teams reviewing the streamlining needs,” Sami Sivuranta from HKScan said in a press release.

The reduction in workforce is expected to save HKScan seven million euros per year. In all, restructuring production is part of HKScan’s aim to generate annual savings of 40 million euros by 2020.

Last year, the company had net sales of 1.8 billion euros and an operating loss of 40 million euros. HKScan employs about 7,300 people and sells meat and other food products under brands like HK, Scan, Rakvere, Kariniemen, Rose, Pärsons and Tallegg. The firm sells products in Finland, Sweden, Denmark and the Baltic countries, exporting goods to a total of nearly 50 countries, according to the company.

Selected Fixtures Preview (12-16 Oct 2018)


The UEFA Nations League kicks off on Thursday the 11th of October 2018 with some exciting matches to look forward to.

Club football takes a break once again as the UEFA Nations League fixtures come thick and fast. This weekend throws a few blockbusters our way with 2018 World Cup finalists, Croatia, locking horns with England, while high-flying Belgium square off with Switzerland.

Meanwhile, a Ronaldo-less Portugal face an Italy side hoping to bounce back under Roberto Mancini. The tie between Netherlands and Germany also promises to be mouth-watering, while we close proceedings with Spain taking on England in the Three Lions’ second UEFA Nations League encounter this week.

Friday 12 October

Belgium 9/20
Draw 33/10
Switzerland 52/10 
Belgium will look to do what is expected of them this Friday and brush aside Switzerland. Since losing to France in the semi-finals of the World Cup, Belgium have endured a three-game winning streak, beating England to finish third in the world, and cruising past Scotland and Iceland. They’ve kept three clean sheets in as many games in that run and with Eden Hazard in the form of his life, they should have no troubles.

Switzerland hammered Iceland 6-0 in their Nations League opener, but suffered defeat in Wembley against England a few days later. Belgium should have too much class for the Swiss here – get on at 9/20.

Croatia 16/10
Draw 2/1
England 18/10
After an impressive World Cup display in Russia, Croatia seem to have suffered somewhat of a setback, or perhaps it was champagne hangovers as the Croats remain winless since reaching the final, and come off the back of a 6-0 demolition against Spain. England also lost their encounter to Spain – a 2-1 defeat at Wembley, although they bounced back in a friendly against Switzerland to regain that winning feeling.

Jadon Sancho of Borussia Dortmund has looked sharp so far this season, so too has Ross Barkley for Chelsea, but the Three Lions will need Harry Kane to get on the scoresheet and rebuild some of his confidence, which seems to have taken a dip of late. My money is on Over 2.5 Goals here at 12/10.

Austria 5/10
Draw 29/10
Northern Ireland 57/10 
Austria hope to get their Nations League campaign back on track when they host Northern Ireland, who have struggled in recent months, especially away from home, where they have failed to score in four outings.

At home, Austria have been a joy to watch. They beat Germany, Sweden and Russia, losing just once in 11 encounters, a 3-0 drubbing against Brazil. Marko Arnautovic has been lively this season and has found new life in his new striking role which was first deployed at club level. At 5/10, Austria should pick up their first win in the Nations League.

Saturday 13 October

Netherlands 47/20
Draw 51/20
Germany 21/20
Netherlands will be hoping for a turnaround performance when they face 2014 world champions, Germany, after losing their Nations League opener against current world champions, France. The Dutch have been a team on the decline for many years, but with the young guns firing up front, Ronald Koeman’s men will feel they have a chance.

Germany have also opted to go with a few youngsters, but also have the experience of Toni Kroos, Manuel Neuer, Mats Hummels and Thomas Muller to call upon. The Germans drew their first encounter, 0-0 against France, but should come out on top against so-called lesser opposition. Back the away win here at 21/20.

Republic of Ireland 21/10 
Draw 39/20
Denmark 29/20
Martin O'Neill will be hoping to inspire his Irish charges when they prepare to host Denmark in the UEFA Nations League. The Republic of Ireland have won just once in their last seven matches and suffered a humiliating 5-1 defeat at home against this weekend’s opponents, Denmark.

The Danes were impressive in the World Cup and with Kasper Schmeichel and Christian Eriksen at their best, it would take something special for Denmark to come out second best. Back the visitors to come out on top here, just as they did last year in a 5-1 drubbing.


Sunday 14 October

Russia 11/10
Draw 39/20
Turkey 29/10 
Russia did a fantastic job in hosting one of the most memorable FIFA World Cups earlier this year, but the show must go on, with competitive football coming thick and fast for Russia. But since they crashed out of the World Cup, Russia went on to beat their opponents, Turkey, 2-1 away from home and then Czech Republic 5-1 in a friendly.

The Turks started their Nations League off with a defeat against Russia, but picked things up away from home as they grinded out a 3-2 win in Sweden. They’re unbeaten in their last four matches and will prove to be no pushovers. Back a share of the spoils here.

Poland 2/1
Draw 21/10
Italy 27/20
 
After a dismal World Cup showing in Russia, Poland seem to have found their rhythm and are now unbeaten in three matches. They closed their campaign with a 1-0 win over Japan, then later went on to draw with Italy and the Republic of Ireland last month. Italy head into the international break with a four-game winless run, but could rectify things in a friendly against Ukraine before they face Poland.

Away from Italy, Roberto Mancini’s men have been dreadful, failing to win in their last five matches, losing four times. Their young defence hasn’t managed to cope with the pressure of facing the big guns, and I could certainly see this going wrong for the 2006 world champions. Back Poland here at a valuable 18/10.

Monday 15 October

Iceland 34/10 
Draw 23/10 
Switzerland 17/20 
Things are not looking good for the Icelandic Vikings as they sit rooted to the foot of Group 2 in League A, losing both their opening two matches (6-0 away to Switzerland and 3-0 at home to Belgium). At the time of writing, Iceland are winless in nine matches, including a winless run in the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

Switzerland play Belgium before they face Iceland, but will be confident heading into this game, despite what might happen on Friday. The Swiss bulldozed their way past Iceland before and should do enough to grind another victory. Get on the away win here.

Spain 9/10 
Draw 49/20 
England 3/1 
After a disappointing World Cup, Spain appointed Luis Enrique and as expected, the former Barcelona mentor has taken the 2010 world champions forward. They beat England at Wembley last month and smashed six past Croatia a few days later.

Gareth Southgate has set one eye on Euro 2020 preparations as the English boss opted to call a few new faces to the national team, including Leicester City’s James Maddison. Enrique has also called up a few youngsters, and in Spain, I simply give England no chance here. Back the home side.

Tuesday 16 October

France 1/1 
Draw 51/20 
Germany 51/20
World champions, France, have simply been untouchable in the last year, enduring a 13-game unbeaten run, including success at the FIFA World Cup. Germany did manage to hold France after the World Cup, but looking at Joachim Low’s team selected, they could fall short against the mighty Les Bleus.

Kylian Mbappe has been phenomenal this season, while N’Golo Kante and Antoine Griezmann have also looked sharp. It will certainly be a cagey affair, but France are backed to win.

TREBLE TIPPED @ 5/1

          Hillary Clinton Tells Republicans What They Can Do With Their Damn 'Civility'      Cache   Translate Page      


My soul sister Hillary Clinton came out swinging Tuesday in a CNN interview where she observed, because she is alive and has full possession of her faculties, that the Republican Party is a bunch of gangsters and gangsters are bad news.

"You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about," Clinton said in an interview with CNN's Christiane Amanpour. "That's why I believe, if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and or the Senate, that's when civility can start again. But until then, the only thing that the Republicans seem to recognize and respect is strength."

Civility can begin once we've electorally disarmed those who can hurt us. Seems reasonable. Clinton went on to describe the modern-day GOP as "driven by the lust for power," and "funded by corporate interests who want a government that does its bidding." Then she got funky.

"Hill-Boogie spars with stars and constellations. Then came down for a little conversation. Adjacent to the king, fear no human being. Roll with cherubims to Nassau Coliseum. Now hear this mixture, where Hip Hop meets scripture. Develop a negative into a positive picture."

OK, she didn't say that last part, but the people's president was spitting fire.


All that truth triggered multiple alarms in the White House, and the caped con artist Kellyanne Conway rushed to the "Lying-mobile" to stamp it out. It's always a gas with her. What alternate reality will Conway whip out of her utility belt to insult our intelligence with this time?

"Usually when she opens her mouth, respectfully, she offends at least one half of the country, and she did it again, but I think her discourse now is a little bit dangerous," Conway said in an appearance on the White House lawn.

"I don't like the implications there," she said. "It's one thing to call us deplorable, irredeemable, laugh at people who don't have all the privileges that she has had with her Ivy League law degree and her marriage to a much more popular man who was actually was a two-term president that she'll never be. . . . I don't like that kind of talk. I avoid it."

Uh, what just happened here? Conway hurled an insult cream pie at Clinton and then has the audacity to say, "I don't like that kind of talk. I avoid it." It's like Aaron Burr standing over Alexander Hamilton as he bled out and insisting, "Honestly? I don't like duels. Something like this always happens. And who gets blamed? The guy who's still alive." But then Conway chose to just blow our minds with uncut, concentrated absurdity.

"My boss has called for civility. He says he represents all Americans."

Conway works for Donald Trump not the ghost of Fred Rogers. Trump literally just published an op-ed in USA Today, like, today that was nothing but lies and libels of liberals with some helpful punctuation the USA Today editors added when transcribing it from the original roll of toilet paper.

The truth is that the centrist Democratic Party is dead. The new Democrats are radical socialists who want to model America's economy after Venezuela.

(He also literally, last night, called Democrats "evil.")

You'll note that self-declared Democratic Socialists such as Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez usually refer to the economies of Sweden, Norway, and Denmark when discussing their nefarious plans. But countries like Denmark are predominately white with record levels of happiness. Venezuela has a white minority, so the "failed stated" rhetoric is a not-so-subtle dog whistle. That is what the US could become with all those brown people voting for "free stuff."

It's also why Trump and the GOP's talk of "angry mobs" confronting innocent Republicans scare white people so much. We like to avoid addressing the growing reality that the US is practically two separate nations: a conservative, predominately white one that the Republican Party represents and a left-of-center one that is predominately people of color, LGBT, and hippies of all creeds. When Conway, Trump, or McConnell warn of Democrats such as Hillary Clinton "stirring up the mob," they are conjuring a specific image that is direct from the work of D.W. Griffith.

Fortunately, Maxine Waters isn't having it. Aunt Maxine correctly pointed out how peaceful protest fully (well, mostly) integrated minorities and women of all races into society. She even literally brought receipts of Trump promoting actual violence at his rallies. If anyone knows about mobs, it's Don Trump.

Trump has headlined regular campaign rallies where he viciously attacks Waters, Elizabeth Warren, and Dianne Feinstein. Feinstein has even joined Clinton in eliciting a round of hearty "lock her ups" from his slack-jawed yokel supporters, just last night! The GOP can't credibly talk about "civility" when the sitting president and leader of their party gets his jollies by raising a lynch mob against women who are all eligible for senior citizen discounts. I don't expect Trump to open doors for women or even his own wife, but at the very least don't hand out Trump brand pitchforks and torches at your rallies.

Conservatives have long defined "civility" and "respect" as submission and obedience. It's what they demand from us and will never return. Now, the women of the left are vocally telling Republicans what they can do with their calls for "civility." True, some Democrats are running scared and trying to play by the "old rules" that never applied in the first place. Senator Heidi Heitkamp -- who I'm still grateful didn't dial "yes" for "rapist" -- said Clinton's comments were "ridiculous."

"I mean I can't imagine how you get anything done if you don't bring civility back into politics, and that goes for both sides," Heitkamp lamented. I don't know, lady, ask the Republicans who are chasing you out of office. They've managed quite well.

I recall the words of Malcolm X: "We are peaceful people. We are loving people. We love everybody who loves us. But we don't love anybody who doesn't love us." Seems fair, right? However, conservatives have no intention of ever "loving" or even respecting us, so they can only see this as a call to arms. Clinton and Waters are peaceful people, but they won't live in a fantasy world, no matter how rhetorically comfortable, and neither should we.

Caltech welcomes 12 faculty members who will join the Institute's six divisions over the academic year, representing fields ranging from cosmochemistry and microeconomics to genome engineering and the philosophical underpinnings of quantum theory.

Division of Biology and Biological Engineering

Long Cai, Professor of Biology and Biological Engineering

Cai focuses on spatial genomics, using super-resolution and live-cell microscopy to study gene regulatory networks in cells and organisms. He and his group have developed a novel imaging method, called seqFISH, that allows over 10,000 genes to be imaged directly in single cells, revealing how cells are organized in tissues like the brain and illustrating previously unknown dynamics in stem cells. Cai received his bachelor's degree and PhD from Harvard University.

David Van Valen, Assistant Professor of Biology and Biological Engineering

Van Valen (PhD '11) studies the quantitative and physical principles underlying the behavior of complex biological systems using host-virus interactions as a model system. He and his group will seek to understand how living systems and their respective viruses encode and decode information about their internal state and their environment. Van Valen received undergraduate degrees in mathematics and physics from MIT in 2003. He then matriculated into the UCLA/Caltech MD/PhD program, completing his PhD in applied physics in 2011 and his MD degree in 2013.

Kaihang Wang, Assistant Professor of Biology and Biological Engineering

Wang focuses on genome engineering, developing methods to "write" the sequences of entire genomes within living cells, which enables the engineering of synthetic organisms with new genetic codes and new capabilities. In future work, he hopes to develop this genome engineering technology to take it beyond bacteria to animal cells, and to use it to develop a variety of new biotechnology applications. Wang received a BSc in biochemistry from University College London and a PhD in synthetic biology and biochemistry from the University of Cambridge.

Division of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering

Scott Cushing, Assistant Professor of Chemistry

Cushing's research examines ultrafast electronic-structural dynamics, particularly as they are relevant to optical biosensors and renewable energy systems. He is currently developing techniques that combine element specificity with a time resolution of less than a femtosecond (one millionth of one billionth of a second) and he is also exploring classical spectroscopy with entangled photons. He received his bachelor's degree and PhD from West Virginia University in 2011 and 2015, respectively, and was a Department of Energy Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Postdoctoral Fellow at UC Berkeley from 2016–18.

Ryan Hadt, Assistant Professor of Chemistry

Hadt's research is broadly based in the area of physical inorganic chemistry and employs a wide range of spectroscopic techniques with the goal of understanding the role of the electronic structure of transition metals such as cobalt, with applications to interdisciplinary areas of chemistry, biology, and materials science. His current research is focused on fundamental and applied studies of the molecular processes involved in forming and breaking chemical bonds, with the goal of optimizing the catalysts involved in chemical reactions. Hadt received his BS and MS degrees in chemistry from the University of Minnesota, Duluth, in 2007 and 2008, respectively, and his PhD from Stanford University in 2014. He was then a visiting postdoctoral fellow at Harvard University and an Enrico Fermi Fellow at Argonne National Laboratory.

Lu Wei, Assistant Professor of Chemistry

Wei's research lies at the interface of optical spectroscopy, chemical biology, and life sciences. Her lab is developing cutting-edge optical spectroscopy and microscopy techniques to understand the dynamical physical and chemical processes in living systems. For example, she and her colleagues have developed a technique in which the vibrations of a chemical tag can be detected in living cells by a method called stimulated Raman scattering microscopy. The tag could be used to trace important small biomolecules in a cell and map their locations over time. Wei received a BS from Nanjing University in 2010 and a PhD from Columbia University in 2015. After her postdoctoral work at Columbia, she came to Caltech as an assistant professor in March 2018.

Division of Engineering and Applied Science

Alireza Marandi, Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering

Marandi is an electrical engineer who studies nonlinear photonics to create new molecular sensing and computing functions. Nonlinear photonics is a field of optics that uses light—usually from lasers—in nonlinear media to alter its wavelength. It provides a broad range of less-explored opportunities to use lasers and light detectors for purposes including sensing and computing. Marandi received a bachelor's degree from the University of Tehran in 2006, a master's degree from the University of Victoria in 2008, and a PhD from Stanford University in 2013.

Division of Geological and Planetary Sciences

François Tissot, Assistant Professor of Geochemistry

Tissot, an isotope geochemist and cosmochemist, works on questions pertaining to the chronology, formation, and evolution of the solar system; the reconstruction of oxygen levels in Earth's oceans and atmospheres in the deep geological past; and the development of new methods to investigate the formation of the continental crust. To answer these questions, he uses mass spectrometers that quantify minute differences in the amounts of certain elements and isotopes in terrestrial and extraterrestrial samples (for example, meteorites and their inclusions). Tissot received a diplome d'Ingénieur from École National Supérieure de Géologie in France in 2009, an MSc from the Luleå University of Technology in Sweden in 2009, and a doctorate from the University of Chicago in 2015. 

Division of the Humanities and Social Sciences

Charles (Chip) Sebens, Assistant Professor of Philosophy

Sebens's research lies at the intersection of philosophy and science. In particular, he explores the philosophical underpinnings of quantum theory and classical field theory—examining, for example, whether electrons actually "spin." He received bachelor's degrees in philosophy and physics from MIT in 2009, a Master of Studies degree in philosophy of physics from the University of Oxford in 2010, and, from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, he received a Master of Science degree in physics in 2013 and a PhD in philosophy in 2015.

Yi Xin, Assistant Professor of Economics

Xin is an economist with an interest in applied microeconomics and statistical methodology. She has researched areas in econometrics, a field of study that applies statistical methods to economic data to determine underlying economic relationships, and empirical industrial organization, which uses empirical methods for analyzing the structures of markets and corporations. She received bachelor's degrees in economics and psychology from Peking University in 2012, and a master's degree in economics (2016) and a PhD in economics (2018) from Johns Hopkins University.

Division of Physics, Mathematics and Astronomy

Philip Isett, Assistant Professor of Mathematics

Isett, a mathematician, works in partial differential equations, focusing on solutions to the incompressible Euler equations of fluid dynamics in a regime of low regularity. He received a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Maryland in 2008 and a PhD from Princeton University in 2013, then he worked at MIT as a Moore Instructor and as a National Science Foundation postdoctoral scholar. He was named assistant professor at the University of Texas at Austin.

Maksym Radziwill, Professor of Mathematics

Radziwill works in analytic number theory, focusing on the distribution of prime numbers, multiplicative functions, and related objects. He is particularly interested in the interactions of analytic number theory with other fields of mathematics, specifically probability, spectral theory, and harmonic analysis. Radziwill earned his BSc in mathematics from McGill University in 2009 and his PhD from Stanford University in 2013. He was a member of the Institute for Advanced Study from 2013–14, Hill Assistant Professor at Rutgers University from 2014–16, and an assistant professor at McGill University from 2016–18.

          13 RONIN - DevLog #6 - Time for graphics      Cache   Translate Page      
In my last blog post I showcased some of the audio I’ve been working with for my upcoming game 13 RONIN, now it’s time for graphics. But first a celebration. The 4th of October is a day dedicated to the cinnamon roll here in Sweden (yes, it’s true), which we, of course, celebrate by baking, buying and eating lot’s of (you guessed it) cinnamon rolls. Since I’m a fan of the pastry myself, I happily took part in the celebration. But I also had another reason to celebrate. From October and till the end of the year I’ve reduced the number of hours I’m putting in on my day job from 40 to 32 in favor of spending more time working on 13 RONIN. Big kudos to my boss for approving this! Main character How do you go about drawing a samurai with realistic proportions when you don’t know how to draw? I started by googling images on human proportions and created a reference image I could use as background layer while drawing. In parallel to this, I watched a lot of old samurai movies and Kendo-tournaments and with still images from these kind of videos as reference I drew my character. At the beginning of this project, I intended to use silhouette-looking sprites mostly drawn in solid black. This changed over time, I had a few different ideas, but finally settled on using gray-scaled sprites with very low-saturated colors for light and dark areas. I decided on this color scheme to keep consistent with the black and white samurai movie theme. The low saturated colors are there to make the sprites stand out from the background, but also to make the visuals more interesting. With this style, I’ve found a reasonable balance between aesthetics and time spent drawing. Background In the early days of this project, I was more into ninjas than samurais and the initial idea for the game was that you as a white dressed samurai had to fight a bunch of bad, bad ninjas dressed in colorful outfits. To get started I drew a forest background. Soon I discovered that even the best of the ninja-movies weren’t that good and I found myself switching to samurai-movies and my approach to the project changed. Now I wanted to create a fighting game looking like Limbo, with black ninjas emerging from the dark. Sometime later I re-discovered my love for low-resolution pixel-art and the Limbo-aesthetics was dropped. The code-project still carries the somewhat humorous working title of the ninja-project, it’s called “Ninja in the dark”. I wanted to start drawing something basic, something I thought I had the skills for and choose to draw a building which I later on turned into a tavern. It’s yet not finished and I can’t promise it will fit into the final game, but it will be the background of the first public build. Energy and score After finishing the background I took some time to draw the graphics for player score and energy symbols. I tried a few different ideas and settled on the score written in a custom font upon a scroll-like background. For energy symbols I also tried a few different ideas before stealing the yin-yang symbols from The way of the exploding fist and turning them red. I do love that game. In-game graphics There are a lot of animations to finish before the game is playable, but this is at least a taste of what will come. Happy coding! /jan.

          Conservative journalist’s young children threatened with rape and death – Swedish media ignore it      Cache   Translate Page      

Joakim Lamotte, a Swedish journalist who is known for his research into migrant crime, is being threatened with his life and the rape of his wife and young children.

As we’ve reported before, people call Lamotte and tell him that he should be slaughtered, that his wife should be slaughtered and that they are going to f*ck his entire family.

In one weekend the conservative journalist received over 40 calls of that kind and as a result he explained why he was inactive for some time on Facebook.

But in politically correct Sweden the case isn’t even news. Imagine what would happen if a leftist politician or migrant family received these threats.

          Going behind the design of the new Chromecast      Cache   Translate Page      

The She Word is a Keyword series all about dynamic and creative women at Google, and we recently spoke to two women behind the design of the new Chromecast, which hit shelves this week. Diana Chang and Katie Morgenroth are industrial designers tasked with designing hardware that fits naturally into your home. Below, we share how they tackle that challenge, as well as what’s in store for our favorite macaron-sized Made by Google device.  

Elisabeth: How do you explain your job at a dinner party?

Diana: I make tech less intimidating, more approachable, and easier to use—building a bridge between the consumer and the technology they’re using.

Katie: These days, I’m focused on creating the conditions to help our amazing design team feel inspired and supported to do their best work. Framing design sprints, working closely with engineers to unblock challenging constraints and collaborating with the team to ensure our products are harmonious and beautiful are all in a day's work.

SheWord-9801.jpg

Diana (left) and Katie (right) in their office at Google’s headquarters in Mountain View.

What are you most excited about with the new Chromecast? How is it different than what we’ve seen before?

D: Chromecast was our first-ever Made by Google product, and the foundation of our Cast technology. It was created way before our other hardware products, so we’ve updated the new Chromecast to make it look and feel more a part of the Google hardware family. It’s a small device, and the biggest improvements are actually in the tiny details. And those details can say a lot about a brand and how much we care about the people who use our products.

K: The new design of Chromecast is all about simplicity; it looks like a little macaron. And it’s coming out in two new colors—Chalk and Charcoal—to match other devices in the Made by Google family. With all of our hardware devices, we want to make sure that they feel like they’re a part of your home.

D: And because of the low cost (it’s still $35!), Chromecast remains an easy entry point for people to experience the power of smart home entertainment.

SheWord-9829.jpg

Here it is! The new Chromecast is now available in the U.S., Canada, U.K., the Netherlands, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Australia, New Zealand, Japan and Singapore, with more regions to come. In the U.S., you can buy it for $35 at the Google Store, Best Buy, Target, Walmart and even more retailers.

SheWord-9812.jpg

What sets Chromecast (and Made by Google products) apart from other devices?

D: The design language: it’s the reason I wanted to join Google. We’re making tech that is approachable, human-centric and easily blends in with other things in your house.

K: Echo Diana. Our aesthetic is taking a counter stance to what we traditionally think about when we imagine technology. We are carefully designing our products to look beautiful as a family or individually.

How would you describe Made by Google design aesthetic in one word?

K: Can I have two? Approachable and optimistic.

D: I would love to hear our customers describe it as sincere and honest.

What’s a challenge you face as an industrial designer?

D: Design is a form of art—unlike math, there’s no way to quantify if design is good or bad, right or wrong. And sometimes, it’s hard to explain a design decision to logical thinkers.

Do you do other types of art too?

D: Yes, art is a stress release for me—you don’t have to worry about specs or cost or whether people will like it. I love ceramics because every piece is unique. Clay has its own personality–you can’t really control it like plastic, rather, respect, understand and work together.

What’s one habit that makes you successful?

D: Hmm, well it’s hard to evaluate what “successful” means, but I’ll tell you what makes me different: my background. Growing up, I moved a lot and lived in different countries. Industrial design is a highly diverse field, and each of us brings a bit of our culture and background to the table. I make it a point to go to one new country every year—it helps me get a different perspective and think outside the box.

K: This is a more boring than Diana’s answer, but I am an avid notetaker. I’m always distracted by something and I need to take notes to keep my inspiration and ideas organized. My wrist is a common spot for quick thoughts and I couldn’t live without Google Keep. I also sleep with a notebook beside my bed, just in case an idea pops up in a dream.

Do you have any advice for aspiring designers?

K: Struggle through the uncomfortable time until it makes sense.

Was there a time that you had to apply that lesson while designing Chromecast?

K: Oh, definitely. We had to work through a lot of tricky requirements in order to keep the size compact and form simple. As often happens, our original intent evolved a bit, but we love the final result. As designers, we pride ourselves on our ability to keep an open mind and meet challenges with opportunities.


          'GRIS': así se han transformado los dibujos de este artista español en uno de los videojuegos más bonitos del año      Cache   Translate Page      

'GRIS': así se han transformado los dibujos de este artista español en uno de los videojuegos más bonitos del año#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

"Una experiencia serena y evocadora, libre de peligro y frustración". Así definen sus creadores a 'GRIS', un nuevo videojuego español con un diseño basado en acuarelas y que representa una de las apuestas más atractivas del año. Hemos visitado al equipo de Nomada Studio en Barcelona y aquí os contamos cuál es la historia detrás de esta pequeña obra de arte.

Gris es también el nombre de la protagonista, una joven perdida cuya aventura nos llevará a descubrir un cautivador trabajo artístico centrado en colores cambiantes. Pero este excelente diseño no es casualidad. Detrás está el artista Conrad Roset, uno de los tres miembros fundadores de 'GRIS' y responsable principal que el juego tenga este aspecto. Se trata de su primer juego y de hecho hasta la fecha sus trabajos consistían únicamente en proyectos para editoriales, el mundo de la publicidad y galerías de arte.

El sueño de este ilustrador no habría sido posible sin Adrián Cuevas y Roger Mendoza, dos programadores con amplia experiencia en el mundo de los videojuegos que decidieron dejar atrás su trabajo en Ubisoft y enfrascarse en la creación de un estudio independiente. Hemos hablado con ellos y averiguado por qué apostaron por transformar el trabajo artístico de Conrad en este prometedor videojuego.

Una obra de arte en movimiento: cómo surge la idea de 'GRIS'

Las oficinas de Nomada Studio están ubicadas en la periferia del barrio de Gracia en Barcelona, una zona históricamente reconocida por su activa comunidad artística y asociativa. En nuestra visita a mediados de septiembre vemos un estudio pequeño, con un equipo estable que no llega a las diez personas. 'GRIS' saldrá a la venta estas navidades de 2018 y el trabajo principal de creación ya estaba realizado. Pero antes de eso habían llegado a ser hasta quince personas, contando con los tres fundadores, animadores, programadores, diseñadores y testers.

Adrián y Roger son quienes llevan la organización de la empresa y los responsables que el juego salga adelante, pero Conrad Roset es el 'alma mater' de 'GRIS'. Suya es la creación de Gris y la idea de reunirse para crear el videojuego.

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

"Los conocí una noche de casualidad a raíz de una amiga en común. Yo vengo de otro mundo profesional, ellos de la programación. Nos conocimos de chiripa." La mayoría de historias empiezan por hechos fortuitos y el caso de 'GRIS' no es una excepción tal y como detalla Conrad. "Yo tenía siempre el run run de querer hacer un videojuego. Lo había comentado a la gente pero lo veía muy complicado. Me faltaban las habilidades necesarias. Pero les comenté la idea de hacer algo pequeñito, una especie de videojuego para móviles con una estética cuidada y les gustó."

Desde pequeño la pasión de Conrad habían sido los videojuegos, pero él venía del mundo del arte. Cuando se percató del auge de los juegos independientes y de la importancia del diseño ató cabos. Él era ilustrador y la idea de hacer un videojuego era parte de buscar nuevos retos.

El rol de Conrad en Nomada Studio es la parte más creativa. Durante más de dos años ha sido el encargado de plasmar el personaje de Gris, crear la atmósfera y definir el tono. Nos comenta que pese a contar con un diseñador de niveles, también ha colaborado en el diseño de escenarios.

La reacción de Adrián ejemplifica bien el proceso que ha sido la creación de 'GRIS'. Justo después de reunirse con Conrad, tenía que irse unos meses a ayudar con un juego en Ubisoft Montreal. Para su sorpresa, Roger había mantenido el contacto y al volver de Canadá la idea se había consolidado.

Llegado a este punto tomaron una decisión que resultó clave para la buena marcha del proyecto. Los tres nos relatan que tuvieron que dejar atrás su trabajo, pero coinciden que fue vital. También era el momento de hacerlo, ya que no tenían cargas importantes y disponían de suficiente estabilidad gracias a la experiencia que tenían.

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

"El salto es bastante bestia. No es lo mismo trabajar en Ubisoft Montreal con 600 personas que con 10. El cambio es bonito pero a la vez increíblemente duro. Asumías que alguien hacía la tarea y ahora te toca a ti."

Desde el principio encajaron bien con Conrad y por eso dieron el salto. La idea era un juego en base blanco y negro y vas desbloqueando colores. Sobre un par de concepts construimos todo.

"En Ubisoft y Square Enix hacía juegos triple AAA como FarCry, Rainbow Six o Assassin's Creed, pero queríamos algo más personal. A los tres nos gustan muchos juegos similares y queríamos hacer algo diferente, más del estilo 'Journey', 'Inside', 'Limbo' o 'Ori and The Blind Forest'."

Adrián y Roger se conocían de la universidad y coincidieron tanto en Montreal como en Ubisoft Barcelona. Aleatoriamente conocieron a Conrad y apostaron por este pequeño proyecto. Como cofundadores se ocupan básicamente de la gestión, los empleados, el seguimiento de tareas y sobre todo intentar que Conrad pueda trabajar tranquilo en su faceta de director creativo.

En nuestra visita al estudio, tanto Adrián como Roger son quienes están más encima del resto del equipo. Como comentan, su objetivo es intentar que todo el peso no recaiga sobre una única persona y parecen conseguirlo. Se les ve bien compenetrados y la sensación que transmite la oficina es de un lugar apacible, donde se respira un ambiente tranquilo y familiar (partidas al Mario Kart incluidas). Una sensación que encaja bien con la filosofía de 'GRIS' y seguramente fruto de haber conseguido cumplir plazos de entrega.

"A nivel personal podíamos hacerlo. Siempre es una apuesta, pero el tiempo era bueno. Estábamos muy cómodos y nos apetecía cosas nuevas. Al principio hacíamos lo que podíamos cuando llegábamos a casa, pero vimos que era muy complicado compaginar las dos cosas a la vez."

'GRIS' es el primer juego propio de los tres creadores pero el contar con experiencia previa en el mundo de los videojuegos ha sido imprescindible para la viabilidad del proyecto.

"Al volver Adrián vimos que había un proyecto interesante y decidimos dejar nuestro trabajo. A partir de ahí el proyecto fue creciendo bastante. Fue divertido."

'GRIS', una aventura de colores

La idea de Gris y un mundo en que vas desbloqueando colores está desde el principio. Cuando Conrad presentó su idea a Adrián y Roger, incluso el nombre de Gris ya estaba encima de la mesa. De hecho, nos confiesa que se inspiró en el trabajo de un buen amigo suyo. El pintor Guim Tió que ya tenía una exposición del mismo estilo.

Sonoramente el nombre de Gris se dice igual tanto en español como en catalán. Es además un nombre que representa muchas cosas, desde el nombre de una persona a un estado de ánimo. Preguntados si traducirán el nombre del juego a otros idiomas nos contestan que no, ya que es el nombre propio de la protagonista. Una decisión personal que mantendrán pese a que son conscientes que en algunos países nórdicos su significado no es muy acorde al juego.

La obra artística de Conrad siempre se ha basado en la figura femenina. Y ese estilo se refleja claramente en el juego. Entorno al personaje de Gris evoluciona toda la historia y la mayoría de dibujos iniciales que nos muestra Conrad representan una figura similar. ¿Está basada Gris en alguna persona real? "Diría que no. Pero he dibujado mucho a mi novia Clara y sin querer todos mis dibujos se basan en un estereotipo de chica similar a ella. Tengo un catálogo de dibujos muy amplio pero supongo que sin querer esto influye." Nos contesta Conrad.

Apostar por un personaje principal femenino no es una decisión predeterminada. Simplemente les encaja y ha sido así desde el principio. De manera similar, el vestido también tiene un rol importante en 'GRIS'. Nos cuentan que de alguna forma evoluciona con ella y el personaje adquiere nuevos poderes a través del vestido. Con estas habilidades podremos desbloquear caminos inexistentes previamente.

Los primeros bocetos de GRIS eran muy diferentes a lo que tenemos hoy. Conrad nos enseña sus libretas de hace tres años y el cambio es abismal. Nos explica por ejemplo que su idea inicial es que el vestido de Gris acabara todo colorido, pero se dieron cuenta que era demasiada información para la pantalla. Ideas conceptuales que gustaban pero al final son poco prácticas, dan mucho trabajo o no funcionan en el videojuego.

El segundo elemento sobre el que gira 'GRIS' son los colores. Habrá cuatro momentos clave, uno al acabar cada área, donde se revela un nuevo color. Cada uno con una animación especial, un momento único en la historia con su propio significado metafórico. Estas cuatro cinemáticas se remiten una otra y sufren una evolución. Para mantener el misterio de estas escenas, desde Nomada Studio prefirieron no enseñarlas.

Del mundo del arte a los videojuegos: inspiración e influencias

Las influencias de GRIS están bastante claras. Tal y como nos explican Conrad, Adrián y Roger, los videojuegos que más se asemejan son Inside, Monument Valley, Ori o Journey. Pero han intentado coger referencias de muchos mundos distintos. Desde escultores, videoclips, cine a cómics. Ponen como ejemplo, con cierto reparo a parecer pedante, las películas de Ghibli, las composiciones de Moebius o las esculturas de Jansen o Calder. Estas últimas visibles en la flora del juego.

En 'GRIS' se nota la mezcla de estos ámbitos y muestra de ello es que muchas personas de Nomada Studio nunca habían trabajado en videojuegos. Presumen de aportar una visión fuera de la industria y creen que es parte del éxito. Más allá de los dos cofundadores, el resto del equipo ha necesitado una pequeña curva de aprendizaje y adaptación. Esto también ha hecho que a nivel de programación el código ha tenido que ser más organizado y accesible.

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

El proceso creativo se basa principalmente en documentarse. Buscar referentes por internet, definir el estilo, el tono, cómo será el personaje, la escena... Conrad nos enseña sus primeras libretas de bocetos y recuerda como siempre llevaba una encima. "Al principio llevaba la libreta las 24 horas, nunca dejas de pensar dónde irá el juego". La clave es el criterio artístico y tener muchos referentes.

Para pasar de estos bocetos al resultado final se ha utilizado principalmente Photoshop. Querían algo hecho a mano y casi todo se ha hecho con la misma herramienta. La suite de Adobe para diseñar y Unity para programar.

Las acuarelas juegan un papel principal. Están en las nubes, en el vestido, en los fondos.. todo está pintado en acuarelas y es la técnica artística que define 'GRIS'. Para ello las pintaban a mano y las escaneaban para luego implementarlas digitalmente como una textura más.

Según sus creadores, 'GRIS' es un juego que nos traslada a un mundo personal, tiene ese punto de solitud, un escenario de dimensiones grandes donde el personaje en ocasiones se siente pequeño en comparación. No tenemos textos y muchas conclusiones se dejan a criterio del jugador. La idea que transmite la obra de Conrad y su equipo es la de indagar en un mundo desconocido, con una sensación de nostalgia y esa búsqueda constante de respuestas.

Durante nuestra visita tuvimos la oportunidad de ver algunos pasajes del juego y lo cierto es que te quedas embobado viéndolo. Escenas de animación de bastantes segundos donde parece que se detiene el tiempo. Esa sensación de pasar un minuto en silencio viendo el juego y tener que decir algo para continuar con la entrevista.

GRIS es un videojuego cuya belleza parece detener el tiempo. Las animaciones están hechas con esmero y cariño y logran cautivarte suficiente como para que por momentos te olvides de lo que tienes alrededor.

Llegamos incluso a preguntarles si esta belleza no afectará a la jugabilidad. Sí es verdad que en muchos momentos cobra importancia el escenario y se intenta que el jugador quede embobado, sin necesidad de hacer nada más que contemplar como se desarrolla la escena. Cada escena es un concepto por sí mismo y en ocasiones parece que se esté intentando crear una especie de película de animación en forma de videojuego.

Cada vez más gente de fuera entra en la industria de los videojuegos. Es un campo que se está abriendo y volviendo más global. Conrad cree que esto es bueno en todos los sentidos y que irá a más. 'GRIS' ha sido como un proyecto personal para él, como un encargo pero donde se ha sentido más liberado que nunca, sin los límites que sus trabajos de ilustrador acostumbraban a tener.

"Photoshop es muy engorroso pero es lo mas artístico"

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

Adrián Miguel es el 'Lead Animator' de Nomada Studio y de los pocos con experiencia directa en videojuegos. Estudió Bellas Artes en Tenerife y realizó un Master en creación de videojuegos en la universidad Pompeu Fabra de Barcelona. Durante tres años trabajó en Novarama pero no pensaba volver al mundillo. Eso era, tal y como él comenta, hasta que vio los concepts de 'GRIS'.

Con Adrián repasamos las distintas animaciones del juego y vemos como se fabrica el movimiento de elementos como el vestido de Gris, su pelo o la propia niña corriendo. Todo el trabajo de animación se realiza también con Photoshop. El uso de After Effects habría sido más sencillo, pero únicamente se utiliza para algunas escenas de cinemática. Todo el resto del juego está realizado en Photoshop, una herramienta mucho más engorrosa para animar un juego de este tamaño pero que permite modificar cada textura y elemento, frame a frame según los criterios de diseño del resto de artistas. Afortunadamente para Nomada Studio, Adrián ya sabía animar en Photoshop, por lo que esto no fue un impedimento extra.

Trabajar con Photoshop resulta muy complejo para animar, pero también consiguen un resultado más artístico y fácil de modificar por el resto del equipo.

Algunos de los trabajos que nos muestra en su tableta son de la animación de Gris levantándose. Aquí únicamente tenemos las líneas, sin efectos ni texturas pero preparado para que otra persona lo termine. Algo que puede hacerse de manera directa a través de Photoshop. Los tiempos de cargar los distintos frames son muy elevados en algunos casos, pero todo lo tienen bastante ordenado. En otras ocasiones como cuando alguna acuarela se esparce, el efecto se hace directamente en Unity.

Otra animación destacada es el movimiento del vestido de Gris al correr. En esta ocasión probaron con múltiples ideas hasta dar con la acertada. Al principio el vestido era muy líquido, luego probaron con algo más vaporoso e incluso con un vestido en forma de bandera. Finalmente se quedaron con algo más sencillo, el vestido está compuesto por 12 frames a los que se le añaden otros 12 frames únicamente para el efecto del aire en la capa.

Al igual que Alba, con quien no pudimos coincidir, Ari es ilustradora en Nomada Studio desde que estaban haciendo la primera demo del juego. Estudió ilustración en BAU, donde Conrad era profesor. Al principio en prácticas, lleva en el estudio desde entonces. Salvo esbozos a mano de Gris al principio, Photoshop es la herramienta que utiliza. Su tarea consiste en ayudar a Conrad en todo, lo que va desde ayudarle con la documentación hasta realizar los 'clean ups' de las animaciones.

"Es muy poético, muy calmado. Una experiencia donde no puedes jugarlo sin llevarte alguna emoción contigo."

"Conrad te da muchísimo material para trabajar. También libertad. Empezamos con concepts que tenía en mente, te explica la atmósfera y buscamos documentación para ver por donde tiramos." Explica Ari. A lo que sigue: "Lo que más me gusta es que puedes construir un mundo entero. Es muy poético, muy calmado. Te está ofreciendo una experiencia donde no puedes jugarlo sin llevarte alguna emoción contigo."

Durante la entrevista, Ari nos enseña multitud de bocetos, ilustraciones e imágenes de todo tipo de colores. Nos explica como han ido cambiando algunos escenarios como el desierto rojo, cómo eran las rocas y cómo se han ido añadiendo colores o texturas para crear una sensación de inmersión más fuerte. Nos llama mucho la atención el grito del pájaro que persigue a Gris, un enemigo recurrente que adoptará diversas formas y que no dispone de un nombre oficial. También vemos imágenes de los diversos animales que ayudan a Gris, así como nos reímos por la decisión de que Gris no tiene pies, pero sí unas manos diminutas.

Berlinist, la música como pieza clave del proyecto

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

La música de 'GRIS' corre a cargo de la banda catalana 'Berlinist', con quien también tuvimos la oportunidad de hablar en nuestra visita a los estudios de Nomada. Un grupo musical formado durante 2011 por tres personas: Luigi, Marco y Gemma. Como no podía ser de otra manera en un juego de este estilo, la música se convierte en un ingrediente clave para ayudar a transmitir la emotividad de los diversos escenarios.

Berlinist trabaja con Nomada Studio desde el primer momento, antes de la demo presentada en la GamesCon. Conrad era fan de la banda y para su juego contactó directamente con ellos. Desde el inicio de la idea se habló de qué tipo de música encajaba y empezaron trabajando primero individualmente y luego involucrando a toda la banda. Berlinist dispone de varios discos con una música armoniosa y tenían experiencia en bandas sonoras para cortometrajes, pero eran primerizos a la hora de hacer una banda sonora para un juego independiente. Algo que para ellos era un sueño, más contando con la garantía de tener a Conrad al mando.

La visión y el concepto de las canciones la desarrolla el propio Conrad. Pero hay mucha libertad creativa. El objetivo es traducir la emoción en música, pero es difícil porque Conrad por formación tiene una forma muy visual de explicar los conceptos. No deja detalle fuera y esto ayuda, pero es trabajo de Berlinist ver como transformarlo en audio. Para ellos es trabajar como para una galería de arte y buscan crear canciones que ayuden en esta contemplación.

Ningún juego sería completo sin su parte musical, pero además en Berlinist tienen muy claro que lo importante es el equilibrio perfecto. Una banda sonora que dividen en dos tipos. Por un lado la música propedéutica en las partes de más acción, como solucionar un puzzle y que ayudan al jugar a concentrarse. Por otro, las canciones que producen una emoción fuerte, vinculadas normalmente a escenas cinemáticas y donde se puede sincronizar al segundo.

Las pocas voces corren a cargo de Gemma, la 'frontwoman' de Berlinist, y respecto a los instrumentos utilizan desde los clásicos como el violín o el piano hasta electrónicos. Luigi y Marco agradecen a Conrad haber respetado su visión de la música, pero la BSO tiene como focus ayudar a la experiencia del juego y han seguido religiosamente las indicaciones de los creadores de 'GRIS'.

Algo más de tres horas de contenido y accesible a todos los públicos

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

Conrad trabaja en Mac, pero el resto del equipo tira por Windows. La eterna dicotomía entre diseñadores y programadores se ve perfectamente reflejada en la oficina de Nomada Studio. Durante la mañana que pasamos con ellos tenemos tiempo para hablar relajadamente y la mayor parte del trabajo se centra ahora en el testeo.

El juego estará disponible para PC, Mac y Switch. Encima de las mesas de trabajo hay varias consolas de Nintendo donde se puede probar la demo y el tester está con el juego utilizando un mando de la Xbox. "Se lo ha pasado cientos de veces". Algo entendible teniendo en cuenta que es su trabajo pero también la duración: unas tres horas y media de contenido.

'GRIS' será un juego accesible para todo tipo de perfiles, pero Roger asegura que quien quiera encontrarle dificultad la puede encontrar. El juego es un plataformas, con zonas de exploración, saltos y puzles de intentar encontrar el elemento clave que activa el escenario. Las mecánicas están hechas para evitar la sensación que el personaje puede morir o quedarse atascado, aunque habrá varios coleccionables escondidos para quienes quieran buscar los máximos entresijos.

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

Prefieren no contestar si habrá varios finales, pero sí confirman que hay varios puntos de guardado. 'GRIS' está pensado para pasarselo en dos sentadas como mucho, un juego que incluso podría jugarse durante una noche de fin de semana en vez de mirar la clásica película.

'GRIS' es un juego pequeño, donde se ha aprovechado el conocimiento que el equipo ya tenía. No hay grandes riesgos técnicos y ha sido programado por completo en Unity, un motor gráfico multiplataforma y con el que están muy contentos.

Los requisitos técnicos tampoco serán muy elevados. 1 o 2GB de memoria gráfica y poco más. Aseguran que cualquier PC medio podría poder moverlo con soltura. El título empezó de hecho como un juego para móviles pero rápidamente evolucionó para verlo en pantalla grande. En función de la recepción trabajarán para expandirlo a otras plataformas. No poniendo trabas a ninguna, ya que cuanta más gente disfrute de 'GRIS' mejor.

"Estuvimos a punto de no ir a la Gamescon"

Devolver Digital es el publisher que permitirá el desembarco de 'GRIS'. Anteriormente, otros juegos de origen español como Crossing Souls o The Red Strings Club ya trabajaron con ellos. Fue durante la Gamescon que lograron la buscada financiación, pero de la misma manera que se sorprendieron con la buena recepción de su juego, también encontraron arduas las negociaciones posteriores.

Como anécdota comentan que estuvieron a punto de no ir a la Gamescon. Durante seis meses habían trabajado en la demo, pero fueron llamadas de atención desde fuera lo que les hizo decidirse. Tuvieron que recortar la demo pero el hecho de contar con una idea clara y tenerla muy bien finiquitada les ayudó a mantener hasta doce reuniones durante el evento.

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

Devolver Digital fue uno de los distribuidores que se interesó desde el primer momento. Al principio no se lo creían, una vez vieron que los contactos avanzaban pensaron que en dos o tres meses estaría hecho. Acabaron siendo seis meses de negociaciones pero bajo su punto de vista tienen el publisher ideal para un juego independiente como 'GRIS'.

"Lo que más valoraron es que 'GRIS' era un juego diferente y para ser una demo estaba muy pulida. Nos centramos en la música y los acabados. Era como un juego finalizado pero muy corto." Explica Adrián. Era su primer juego, pero pese a ser una empresa nueva sí valoraron la experiencia de cada uno de los miembros. "El juego cuando lo ves es música y arte, pero ellos miran quién lo va a hacer." Esa combinación de producto diferente y gente capaz es lo que permitió sacar adelante el juego.

"Devolver Digital nos da feedback de vez en cuando pero la libertad es absoluta."

Para un artista como Conrad, contar con libertad absoluta a la hora de crear ha sido muy gratificante. "Yo venía de otras industrias como la publicidad donde te dan mucho feedback, confían poco y hay muchos cambios. Para mi ha sido una grata sorpresa trabajar con Devolver." El equipo trabaja con un calendario establecido y van completando entregas, pero el feedback es principalmente el que solicitan ellos mismos. Un publisher que compra productos pero da manga ancha a la visión artística de cada creador.

Una vez firmado con Devolver Digital, la financiación dejó de ser un problema. Sí les preguntamos sobre el papel de las ayudas estatales, a lo que contestan que no han solicitado ninguna. "Las cosas están cambiando, pero para quien acaba de empezar es difícil. Las fechas eran demasiado estrictas y estos trabajos siempre se retrasan." - comenta Adrián. Unas ayudas que eso sí mirarán con más detenimiento en caso de hacer nuevos proyectos.

Una experiencia audiovisual y narrativa parecida a una película de animación

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

En Nomada Studio están contentos con la recepción que están teniendo. Al ser su primer juego no tienen un baremo con el que comparar. "Nos pasó en la Gamescon, estás trabajando en una burbuja y no sabíamos si gustaría." Pese a todo, el feedback que reciben de los usuarios en redes sociales y en eventos es positivo.

Entre la respuesta del público ha surgido fan-arts que particularmente a Conrad le encanta. "Como artista, ver la visión de otra gente de tu personaje es impresionante. Todos los bocetos que nos envían los colgamos en las redes sociales." Conrad nos explica que han hecho a Gris hasta en un cuadro de madera e incluso ya ha visto a algunas chicas con un cosplay de su personaje.

El juego saldrá en diciembre, a una fecha todavía por concretar. Durante los próximos meses se dará a conocer un nuevo trailer anunciado la fecha de salida. Y habrá al menos otro unos días antes de la llegada definitiva del juego. Todavía falta optimizar y corregir algunos bugs, pero en Nomada Studio están contentos también por haber cumplido plazos. El proyecto se planteó para salir en navidades y así parece que será.

Tanto Conrad, como Adrián y Roger necesitan unas vacaciones. Han sido casi tres años y necesitan un descanso, pero al preguntar sobre sus próximos proyectos nos explican que siempre hay ideas encima de la mesa. Muchas de ellas muy malas, pero en sus palabras se nota la ilusión y se percibe que su primer videojuego ha sido una buena experiencia para ellos.

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

No hay precio por el momento, pero no costará 70 euros. 'GRIS' es un juego lleno de arte y color. No estamos ante una superproducción y el equipo de Nomada Studio todavía no se ha estrenado, pero al visitarlos se nota la pasión por el detalle y el esmero que ponen en cada escena.

Cualquier persona con un mínimo de interés en películas, series o videojuegos podrá disfrutar de 'GRIS'. Nos repiten la idea que quieren que sea un juego accesible, uno en el que te adentres y puedas pasar unas horas agradables, diferentes. "No es un juego único y excepcional, pero es diferente, diverso y cualquiera podrá disfrutarlo". Conrad nos recuerda su infancia cuando jugaba a la Mega Drive sentado junto a su hermano mayor: "Es una experiencia bonita de ver, incluso simplemente estando al lado de la persona que tiene el mando."

'GRIS' explota la experiencia más artística y narrativa. Gráficos delicados, una banda sonora elegante y una animación detallada. Un juego que llegará estas navidades y buscará que nos adentremos en la historia de una niña perdida en su propio mundo. Un título fruto de los trabajos de un ilustrador que ha encontrado en los videojuegos otra manera de expresar su arte.

          Judges Need to Be 'Emotionally Well-Regulated': Here's Why Brett Kavanaugh's Vicious Senate Testimony Should Terrify You      Cache   Translate Page      
Judicial temperament is one of the most important qualities of a judge.

Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the US Supreme Court has not only raised questions about his moral suitability for this prominent role, but also to his emotional suitability.

Appearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee ahead of his confirmation to answer questions about accusations that he assaulted Christine Blasey Ford when the two were in high school, Kavanaugh came across as belligerent, confrontational, lacking in self-control and rude. When senator Amy Klobuchar asked him if he had ever drunk so much he forgot events that occurred, he replied, “I don’t know, have you?” He cried when talking about his family and friends: his ten-year-old daughter wanting to pray for Blasey Ford, his trail-blazing prosecutor mother, his father’s organisational skills, cringing with his friends at the stories in the news about him and when talking about all the female friends who have shown support for him.

All this led to the highly unusual step of Kavanaugh releasing a statement admitting that he might have been “too emotional at times”. He also wrote an opinion piece in the Wall Street Journal entitled “I am an independent, impartial judge”. Meanwhile, more than 2,400 law professors signed a petition opposing his confirmation which was published in the New York Times and presented to the senate. It stated:

Judicial temperament is one of the most important qualities of a judge … Judge Kavanaugh was repeatedly aggressive with questioners. Instead of trying to sort out with reason and care the allegations that were raised, Judge Kavanaugh responded in an intemperate, inflammatory and partial manner, as he interrupted and, at times, was discourteous to senators … We are united, as professors of law and scholars of judicial institutions, in believing that he did not display the impartiality and judicial temperament requisite to sit on the highest court of our land.

The judicial temperament

So, what is judicial temperament and why do we not want angry judges?

Ever since the Enlightenment, a judicial temperament has been associated with the precise opposite of Kavanaugh’s performance. It is, in short, the absence of emotion. For instance, in 1651, the philosopher Thomas Hobbes wrote that judges should be free “of all fear, anger, hatred and compassion”. A good judge should not feel anything. A good judge should not display any emotion. A good judge should be neutral, impartial and objective.

Such judicial temperament was summed up by Brett Kavanaugh himself in a speech at Columbia Law school in 2015 in which he spoke about how important it is for judges “…to keep our emotions in check. To be calm amidst the storm … to demonstrate civility I think that’s important as well … to help display that you are trying to make the decision impartially and dispassionately, based on the law and not based on your emotions.”

We want to have judges who can keep their emotions in check as we want to assure ourselves that judgements are not made based on personal feelings but rather drawn from the evidence presented in a court of law. We have striven to uphold a dichotomy between rationality and emotionality that ensures this.

In order to uphold this division in the law, legal professionals are expected to follow certain invisible rules which shape their emotions and their interactions. For instance, my study of the Swedish courtroom reveals an overarching emotional regime – the rules of the game – for how to perform one’s role. This regime is aimed at stifling emotions in law and ensuring that criminal trials run smoothly. All legal professionals are expected to only display emotions relevant to their role and display them appropriately and courteously.

Kavanaugh broke these rules during the hearing. He interrupted senators and was perceived by many as discourteous, leading to concerns that this incivility would also spill over into the Supreme Court.

Emotion vs. anger

Of course, judges are people, not robots, and emotions are inevitably part of their daily life. Therefore, just like defence lawyers, a judge’s feelings should be managed in order to make them appropriate to the situation. For instance, judges in Sweden have been shown to attempt to hide displays of irritation during trials in order to appear impartial.

Stifling emotions will not lead to better decision-making. It has been said that emotion, when properly channelled, can help judges make good decisions. But that’s the key in the Kavanaugh case: we want judges who are emotionally well-regulated. They are not without emotions but are engaging with, and reflecting on, their emotions and talking about them when suitable.

Kavanaugh failed at this at the hearing, not only by voicing his feelings in an inappropriate manner, but also by voicing such feelings in a situation where they were not relevant. Kavanaugh’s role in the hearings was as a nominee to the Supreme Court. This was a kind of job interview. He was not there as “a son, a husband and dad” – as he claimed to be in his Wall Street Journal article. He was expected to act as Judge Kavanaugh, not Brett Kavanaugh. While Brett Kavanaugh can let it all hang out – get angry, cry and be petulant – Judge Kavanaugh should be more skilled at managing his emotions.

This is not to say that Judge Kavanaugh is not supposed to get angry. He can. But this judicial anger should be appropriately triggered and displayed, and appropriately aimed – not directed at Democratic senators, the media and his accusers – one of whom he claimed was “a joke”.The Conversation

Ever since the Enlightenment, a judicial temperament has been associated with the precise opposite of Kavanaugh’s performance. It is, in short, the absence of emotion. For instance, in 1651, the philosopher Thomas Hobbes wrote that judges should be free “of all fear, anger, hatred and compassion”. A good judge should not feel anything. A good judge should not display any emotion. A good judge should be neutral, impartial and objective.

Such judicial temperament was summed up by Brett Kavanaugh himself in a speech at Columbia Law school in 2015 in which he spoke about how important it is for judges “…to keep our emotions in check. To be calm amidst the storm … to demonstrate civility I think that’s important as well … to help display that you are trying to make the decision impartially and dispassionately, based on the law and not based on your emotions.”

We want to have judges who can keep their emotions in check as we want to assure ourselves that judgements are not made based on personal feelings but rather drawn from the evidence presented in a court of law. We have striven to uphold a dichotomy between rationality and emotionality that ensures this.

In order to uphold this division in the law, legal professionals are expected to follow certain invisible rules which shape their emotions and their interactions. For instance, my study of the Swedish courtroom reveals an overarching emotional regime – the rules of the game – for how to perform one’s role. This regime is aimed at stifling emotions in law and ensuring that criminal trials run smoothly. All legal professionals are expected to only display emotions relevant to their role and display them appropriately and courteously.

Kavanaugh broke these rules during the hearing. He interrupted senators and was perceived by many as discourteous, leading to concerns that this incivility would also spill over into the Supreme Court.

Emotion vs. anger

Of course, judges are people, not robots, and emotions are inevitably part of their daily life. Therefore, just like defence lawyers, a judge’s feelings should be managed in order to make them appropriate to the situation. For instance, judges in Sweden have been shown to attempt to hide displays of irritation during trials in order to appear impartial.

Stifling emotions will not lead to better decision-making. It has been said that emotion, when properly channelled, can help judges make good decisions. But that’s the key in the Kavanaugh case: we want judges who are emotionally well-regulated. They are not without emotions but are engaging with, and reflecting on, their emotions and talking about them when suitable.

Kavanaugh failed at this at the hearing, not only by voicing his feelings in an inappropriate manner, but also by voicing such feelings in a situation where they were not relevant. Kavanaugh’s role in the hearings was as a nominee to the Supreme Court. This was a kind of job interview. He was not there as “a son, a husband and dad” – as he claimed to be in his Wall Street Journal article. He was expected to act as Judge Kavanaugh, not Brett Kavanaugh. While Brett Kavanaugh can let it all hang out – get angry, cry and be petulant – Judge Kavanaugh should be more skilled at managing his emotions.

This is not to say that Judge Kavanaugh is not supposed to get angry. He can. But this judicial anger should be appropriately triggered and displayed, and appropriately aimed – not directed at Democratic senators, the media and his accusers – one of whom he claimed was “a joke”.The Conversation

          Predicting Adherence to Internet-Delivered Psychotherapy for Symptoms of Depression and Anxiety After Myocardial Infarction: Machine Learning Insights From the U-CARE Heart Randomized Controlled Trial      Cache   Translate Page      
Background: Low adherence to recommended treatments is a multifactorial problem for patients in rehabilitation after myocardial infarction (MI). In a nationwide trial of internet-delivered cognitive behavior therapy (iCBT) for the high-risk subgroup of patients with MI also reporting symptoms of anxiety, depression, or both (MI-ANXDEP), adherence was low. Since low adherence to psychotherapy leads to a waste of therapeutic resources and risky treatment abortion in MI-ANXDEP patients, identifying early predictors for adherence is potentially valuable for effective targeted care. Objectives: The goal of the research was to use supervised machine learning to investigate both established and novel predictors for iCBT adherence in MI-ANXDEP patients. Methods: Data were from 90 MI-ANXDEP patients recruited from 25 hospitals in Sweden and randomized to treatment in the iCBT trial Uppsala University Psychosocial Care Programme (U-CARE) Heart study. Time point of prediction was at completion of the first homework assignment. Adherence was defined as having completed more than 2 homework assignments within the 14-week treatment period. A supervised machine learning procedure was applied to identify the most potent predictors for adherence available at the first treatment session from a range of demographic, clinical, psychometric, and linguistic predictors. The internal binary classifier was a random forest model within a 3×10–fold cross-validated recursive feature elimination (RFE) resampling which selected the final predictor subset that best differentiated adherers versus nonadherers. Results: Patient mean age was 58.4 years (SD 9.4), 62% (56/90) were men, and 48% (43/90) were adherent. Out of the 34 potential predictors for adherence, RFE selected an optimal subset of 56% (19/34; Accuracy 0.64, 95% CI 0.61-0.68, P<.001). The strongest predictors for adherence were, in order of importance, (1) self-assessed cardiac-related fear, (2) sex, and (3) the number of words the patient used to answer the first homework assignment. Conclusions: For developing and testing effective iCBT interventions, investigating factors that predict adherence is important. Adherence to iCBT for MI-ANXDEP patients in the U-CARE Heart trial was best predicted by cardiac-related fear and sex, consistent with previous research, but also by novel linguistic predictors from written patient behavior which conceivably indicate verbal ability or therapeutic alliance. Future research should investigate potential causal mechanisms and seek to determine what underlying constructs the linguistic predictors tap into. Whether these findings replicate for other interventions outside of Sweden, in larger samples, and for patients with other conditions who are offered iCBT should also be investigated.

          Seeds Of Change Week To Culminate In Celebration Of Civil-rights Activism      Cache   Translate Page      

Bristol Old Vic's Seeds of Change Week (8-12 Oct) will reach its pinnacle with an evening of cabaret, music and poetry in the brand-new Weston Studio.

Seeds of Change (8-12 Oct) is part of Bristol Old Vic's ongoing welcome to the whole city during this Year of Change. It is a curated week of work investigating the mechanisms through which radical social change is, or might be, achieved in Bristol's Past, Present and Future.

The week includes a workshop performance of Olivier-Award winning Giles Terera's debut play The Meaning of Zong; Miles Chambers and Edson Burton's much-loved Curry Goat and Fish Fingers; Phoenix Dance Theatre's Windrush: Movement of the People; as well as a transnational digital installation comprising a trilogy of literary films made in the UK, Nigeria and Nevis, called Daughters of Igbo Woman.

This Friday, Seeds of Change will culminate with the grand finale event: 50 Voices for Change. The evening will be a celebration of free-wheeling cabaret, featuring glorious music and powerful speeches from the history of civil rights, alongside personal moments of inspiration from Bristol-based artists.

50 Voices for Change marks 50 years of civil-rights activism since the assassination of Martin Luther King in 1968. Once again '50 Voices' are brought to the stage to give their personal testimony about what social activism means to them and how they use their work and art to make change happen.

          Thread: Cataclysm: A Second World War:: Strategy:: Strategic thoughts on Facist play      Cache   Translate Page      

by sho_vaunt

Preamble: I don't see enough strategic conversation, so I figure I'd throw in my handful of change.

Please note that I've only played a handful of games, so I'm sure I'm getting some rules wrong somewhere.

C1 Fascist play strategic thoughts
The Fascist are the instigators of the game. Sitting in-between Russia and the Democracies (Dems), they affect and can be affected by all players. Victory hinges on a delicate balance between working with Russia against the late-game strength of the US, and knowing when Inevitable Betrayal is the correct play.

Overall Fascist concerns

1. Don't give the Dems flags
Worst case scenario: US/UK/France have triple allied, US has Lend Lease, stopped giving resources to Japan, all 3 Dem countries are stable, and have mobilized. This is GG for the facists. Don't let it happen to you!

Curiously, all the items listed above require Dem flags to achieve. By denying them flags, you can prevent your doomsday scenario from occurring!

A. All the things you want to do as the fascists (mobilize, rearm the Ruhr, ally, take Poland/Sweden/Yugoslavia/Rumania; all give the Dems flags. This means you will need to give them some political might. Don't hand them flags for less valuable things - save them for mobilization and getting production. VPs can wait.

B. US flags are the worst
of all Democratic countries, the US is the worst to give flags to. Be very careful with your Japan play to try limit the US flags gained.

C. Remember flag token limits
If you have to give a country flags, time it so they lose as many as possible. France only has 2 flags total, so if they are holding one and you provoke them to give them two (Ex: attacking Yugoslavia and conquering it), they still only get one.


2. End of Status Quo
When Russia, Germany, or Italy tip the commitment scale, or Germany + Italian cubes outnumber French and UK cubes in Europe, SQ is broken. This is a very, very, bad thing, as it gives the Dems flags.

Options for dealing with Status Quo:
A. Plan on taking Europe slow for as long as you can afford to, to deny the Dems as many flags as possible. Try not to give them ANY flags. This means no commitment increases and using your flags to pressure Japan. Only spend diplomacy actions on spots where the Dems do not have interest (Damn you Poland!)

B. Give them the bare minimum
You want to be in a position to surprise attack France before America joins the alliance. So you need Germany to be at Mobilization on the commitment track. This means giving the UK/French 2 flags each. You probably want to rearm the Ruhr as well so you can easily attack (go through Bavaria instead?! hmmmmm), so that's another flag. But that's it!

C. The Sprint
Full speed ahead - you can win before they get their act together, right? Right??

Well. Sprinting straight out of the gate is contraindicated. However, keep an eye on how the Dems use France - they can try to drive France into collapse to remove the French cubes in Europe to end SQ. If they do so, you want to be in a position to sprint on the turn SQ ends. Since French collapse means France breaks alliances, you want to be in a position to be able to attack France before they can re-ally.


Japan
At the start of C1, Japan is where all your easy VPs are going to come. Status Quo is unaffected by your actions in the east, so run wild over China, mobilizing and taking as much as possible while giving the Dems as little flags as possible (as mentioned above - US flags are the worst).

There are a few notes for this:
1. Store an offensive marker so you can attack Hebei before the US can get an aid marker there - if you delay, they can spend 2 offensives to spawn aid, which gives them a flag when you attack (hissss!)

2. You get flags when the US puts aid into China, as long as you have interest. Don't be fooled into giving them flags in return! Attack in a way that they don't get flags; their aid only gives them interest in the actual province, not adjacent.

3. You want to station a unit in Manchuria at all times so Russia cannot diplomify it out from underneath you. A fortress could work as well, but I've never seen Russia attack Manchuria (the one time I've seen Russia attack Japan it was directly into Hokkaido).

4. I've never seen a successful invasion of Java take place. But the production it offers glitters like a tempting jewel...



Italy
1. Il Duce
Mussolini makes you better than France. Ideally you want to save the Duce, so you can use him as fast as possible. This means the next flag you get gives you back the Duce, and you use him again, etc. The Duce works best when you agitate another power so they agitate you back. Don't fall into the trap of giving the Dems too many flags!

2. One production?!
You could save the production for turn 2... but then you have to put the Duce in the cup. This means you can't spend him to ensure the next flag you get is the Duce again. By putting your production in the cup, you're saying that you do not intend to give the Dems flags, and you will not be doing much with the Duce this turn.

Saving the offense marker instead is also a pain - you need 2 of them to be able to attack while at civilian, and if you hold it until the Duce comes out of the cup and you increase commitment, you could have done it the other way around instead so you get the Duce back if you got another flag. Plus, where are you going to attack?? Doing so anywhere will give the Dems too many flags, so as Italy I've often just sat in the sun and proceeded to get drunk like Spain (“Go ahead, take everything,” said Spain. “We’re going to get drunk and become a third-rate power.” - Dave Barry).

3. What do you build as Italy?
You're never going to have enough production or tokens to make a formidable force. However, clutch Italian planes have helped save my ally Germany from Allied invasions before. Also note that once war breaks out, a single troop and plane stationed in Libya can roll through Egypt and up the Levant to cut UK off from the India production as well as stealing VPs from the Dems.

Note: Italy's navy can be very important in the war against the UK. Both to cut lines of communication through the Med, but also to potentially invade Great Britain.

Germany
1. Don't forget you gain 2 flags per turn instead of one (Night of Long Knives)

2. One production?!?!
What are we, Italy?

Germany is in a very similar situation as Italy - at the start of the game they have no production, and no troops (the Italians even have planes!). German mobilization is vital to a fascist victory. You probably want to take it slow on the first turn, ideally waiting for the German homefront's redeployment to move a troop into the Ruhr and only then increasing your commitment (to prevent the stability check for being at commitment higher than civilian).

Like Italy, you can store your production for the next turn, or store the offense marker. Here, the clear choice is production - you want to have enough troops to be able to do anything, and using the offense marker on t2 to attack Poland or some other country within the Dem's sphere of interest.

3. Surprise attacking France
There are some important considerations when you want to attack.
A. You don't want America to be allied.
If America is allied, Germany can still swing a quick alliance with Japan; US cannot join the war if US-Japan trade is still active.
B. Tanks are really important!
C. Each home territory you take gives you a flag, which can become another offensive in an endless cycle of conquest!
D. Taking Paris is the easiest way to make France surrender - capitals are worth 2 cubes, and cause 2 stability checks.
E. Don't be afraid even of the triple alliance
You'll lose no matter what if you hesitate! Attack France for the 2 production, hope for a quick collapse, and make a non-democracy pact with Russia. Russia should know that if the Allies curbstomp Germany then they'll win. Russia should be willing to work with Germany until...

4. Inevitable Betrayal of Russia
When you have enough VPs to win, your gaze turns to how you can end the game. You could attack the UK... If the war is so far in your favor that you can conceivably attack the UK, you're probably afraid of Russia's Inevitable Betrayal towards you!.

Regardless, war with Russia will be inevitable as long as you are not being crushed by the Allies.

But the easiest way to end the game is probably a joint Japan/German war against Russia, sandwiching Russia between them and making them roll so many stability checks that they surrender. Good luck with that!

obviously there's more that can be discussed, but that's all the time I have for now.

Childhood aggression and the co-occurrence of behavioural and emotional problems: results across ages 3-16 years from multiple raters in six cohorts in the EU-ACTION project.

Abstract
Childhood aggression and its resulting consequences inflict a huge burden on affected children, their relatives, teachers, peers and society as a whole. Aggression during childhood rarely occurs in isolation and is correlated with other symptoms of childhood psychopathology. In this paper, we aim to describe and improve the understanding of the co-occurrence of aggression with other forms of childhood psychopathology. We focus on the co-occurrence of aggression and other childhood behavioural and emotional problems, including other externalising problems, attention problems and anxiety-depression. The data were brought together within the EU-ACTION (Aggression in Children: unravelling gene-environment interplay to inform Treatment and InterventiON strategies) project. We analysed the co-occurrence of aggression and other childhood behavioural and emotional problems as a function of the child's age (ages 3 through 16 years), gender, the person rating the behaviour (father, mother or self) and assessment instrument. The data came from six large population-based European cohort studies from the Netherlands (2x), the UK, Finland and Sweden (2x). Multiple assessment instruments, including the Child Behaviour Checklist (CBCL), the Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire (SDQ) and Multidimensional Peer Nomination Inventory (MPNI), were used. There was a good representation of boys and girls in each age category, with data for 30,523 3- to 4-year-olds (49.5% boys), 20,958 5- to 6-year-olds (49.6% boys), 18,291 7- to 8-year-olds (49.0% boys), 27,218 9- to 10-year-olds (49.4% boys), 18,543 12- to 13-year-olds (48.9% boys) and 10,088 15- to 16-year-olds (46.6% boys). We replicated the well-established gender differences in average aggression scores at most ages for parental ratings. The gender differences decreased with age and were not present for self-reports. Aggression co-occurred with the majority of other behavioural and social problems, from both externalising and internalising domains. At each age, the co-occurrence was particularly prevalent for aggression and oppositional and ADHD-related problems, with correlations of around 0.5 in general. Aggression also showed substantial associations with anxiety-depression and other internalizing symptoms (correlations around 0.4). Co-occurrence for self-reported problems was somewhat higher than for parental reports, but we found neither rater differences, nor differences across assessment instruments in co-occurrence patterns. There were large similarities in co-occurrence patterns across the different European countries. Finally, co-occurrence was generally stable across age and sex, and if any change was observed, it indicated stronger correlations when children grew older. We present an online tool to visualise these associations as a function of rater, gender, instrument and cohort. In addition, we present a description of the full EU-ACTION projects, its first results and the future perspectives.

          Going behind the design of the new Chromecast      Cache   Translate Page      

The She Word is a Keyword series all about dynamic and creative women at Google, and we recently spoke to two women behind the design of the new Chromecast, which hit shelves this week. Diana Chang and Katie Morgenroth are industrial designers tasked with designing hardware that fits naturally into your home. Below, we share how they tackle that challenge, as well as what’s in store for our favorite macaron-sized Made by Google device.  

Elisabeth: How do you explain your job at a dinner party?

Diana: I make tech less intimidating, more approachable, and easier to use—building a bridge between the consumer and the technology they’re using.

Katie: These days, I’m focused on creating the conditions to help our amazing design team feel inspired and supported to do their best work. Framing design sprints, working closely with engineers to unblock challenging constraints and collaborating with the team to ensure our products are harmonious and beautiful are all in a day's work.

SheWord-9801.jpg

Diana (left) and Katie (right) in their office at Google’s headquarters in Mountain View.

What are you most excited about with the new Chromecast? How is it different than what we’ve seen before?

D: Chromecast was our first-ever Made by Google product, and the foundation of our Cast technology. It was created way before our other hardware products, so we’ve updated the new Chromecast to make it look and feel more a part of the Google hardware family. It’s a small device, and the biggest improvements are actually in the tiny details. And those details can say a lot about a brand and how much we care about the people who use our products.

K: The new design of Chromecast is all about simplicity; it looks like a little macaron. And it’s coming out in two new colors—Chalk and Charcoal—to match other devices in the Made by Google family. With all of our hardware devices, we want to make sure that they feel like they’re a part of your home.

D: And because of the low cost (it’s still $35!), Chromecast remains an easy entry point for people to experience the power of smart home entertainment.

SheWord-9829.jpg

Here it is! The new Chromecast is now available in the U.S., Canada, U.K., the Netherlands, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Australia, New Zealand, Japan and Singapore, with more regions to come. In the U.S., you can buy it for $35 at the Google Store, Best Buy, Target, Walmart and even more retailers.

SheWord-9812.jpg

What sets Chromecast (and Made by Google products) apart from other devices?

D: The design language: it’s the reason I wanted to join Google. We’re making tech that is approachable, human-centric and easily blends in with other things in your house.

K: Echo Diana. Our aesthetic is taking a counter stance to what we traditionally think about when we imagine technology. We are carefully designing our products to look beautiful as a family or individually.

How would you describe Made by Google design aesthetic in one word?

K: Can I have two? Approachable and optimistic.

D: I would love to hear our customers describe it as sincere and honest.

What’s a challenge you face as an industrial designer?

D: Design is a form of art—unlike math, there’s no way to quantify if design is good or bad, right or wrong. And sometimes, it’s hard to explain a design decision to logical thinkers.

Do you do other types of art too?

D: Yes, art is a stress release for me—you don’t have to worry about specs or cost or whether people will like it. I love ceramics because every piece is unique. Clay has its own personality–you can’t really control it like plastic, rather, respect, understand and work together.

What’s one habit that makes you successful?

D: Hmm, well it’s hard to evaluate what “successful” means, but I’ll tell you what makes me different: my background. Growing up, I moved a lot and lived in different countries. Industrial design is a highly diverse field, and each of us brings a bit of our culture and background to the table. I make it a point to go to one new country every year—it helps me get a different perspective and think outside the box.

K: This is a more boring than Diana’s answer, but I am an avid notetaker. I’m always distracted by something and I need to take notes to keep my inspiration and ideas organized. My wrist is a common spot for quick thoughts and I couldn’t live without Google Keep. I also sleep with a notebook beside my bed, just in case an idea pops up in a dream.

Do you have any advice for aspiring designers?

K: Struggle through the uncomfortable time until it makes sense.

Was there a time that you had to apply that lesson while designing Chromecast?

K: Oh, definitely. We had to work through a lot of tricky requirements in order to keep the size compact and form simple. As often happens, our original intent evolved a bit, but we love the final result. As designers, we pride ourselves on our ability to keep an open mind and meet challenges with opportunities.

Abstract
Tropical anemia can have multiple causes, whether socioeconomic, dietary, or infectious. In the Bolivian Chaco, soil-transmitted helminthiases (STH), malaria, and Chagas disease are potential infectious causes of anemia among school-aged children (SAC). Following years of preventive chemotherapy with mebendazole, the prevalence of STH among SAC living in that area is now negligible, whereas protozoan infections are still highly prevalent (81%); Hymenolepis nana is the most frequent intestinal helminth (∼13%). We present results of hemoglobin (Hb) assessment and the association between parasitic infections and Hb levels of that SAC population. Overall, 511 SAC (girls:boys ratio 1:1, mean age 9.4 years [95% confidence interval {CI}: 9.3-9.5]) had Hb levels measured by using a portable Hb system HB 301+ (HemoCue1 AB; Angelhome, Sweden). The prevalence of anemia was 23% (117/511), with mean and median Hb level = 12.2 g/dL (95% CI: 12.1-12.3; range 9.2-15.4 g/dL). By multivariate analysis, H. nana infection was associated with an increased risk of anemia (odds ratio 2.9, 95% CI: 1.5-5.7, P = 0.002). Two samples (0.5%) were positive for Trypanosoma cruzi and none for Plasmodium spp. by polymerase chain reaction of the 439 children tested. Anemia is still a concern among SAC living in the Bolivian Chaco. Our findings call for a greater attention to fecal-oral emerging pathogens, such as H. nana, and highlight the importance of water, sanitation, and hygiene improvements for disadvantaged population such as those living in the Bolivian Chaco.
