          Comment on IPCC says 1.5° will be bad and 2.0° will be far worse, calls for radical change NOW by David Jones      Cache   Translate Page      
There are vague calls for "near revolutionary change" but generally the "fixes" mentioned in all these articles are "technological innovation" and changing personal consumption habits. The "innovations" tend to include unproven carbon capture techniques but the mostly unspoken assumptions include nuclear energy and geoengineering. It is a crucial moment for ecosocialists to have some developed scenarios and counter-proposals. How to insert them in the discourse is another question.

          Sevoflurane Exacerbates Cognitive Impairment Induced by Aβ1–40 in Rats through Initiating Neurotoxicity, Neuroinflammation, and Neuronal Apoptosis in Rat Hippocampus      Cache   Translate Page      
Objective. This study was aimed at investigating whether sevoflurane inhalation induced cognitive impairment in rats with a possible mechanism involved in the event. Methods. Thirty-two rats were randomly divided into four groups of normal saline (NS) + O2, NS + sevoflurane (sevo), amyloid-β peptide (Aβ) + O2, and Aβ + sevo. The rats in the four groups received bilateral intrahippocampus injections of NS or Aβ. The treated hippocampus was harvested after inhaling 30% O2 or 2.5% sevoflurane. Evaluation of cognitive function was performed by Morris water maze (MWZ) and an Aβ1–42 level was determined by ELISA. Protein and mRNA expressions were executed by immunohistochemical (IHC) staining, Western blotting, and qRT-PCR. Results. Compared with the NS-treated group, sevoflurane only caused cognitive impairment and increased the level of Aβ1–42 of the brain in the Aβ-treated group. Sevoflurane inhalation but not O2 significantly increased glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) and ionized calcium-binding adaptor molecule (IBA)1 expression in Aβ-treated hippocampus of rats. Expression levels for Bcl-xL, caspase-9, receptor for advanced glycation end products (RAGE) and brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) were significantly different in quantification of band intensity between the rats that inhaled O2 and sevoflurane in Aβ-treated groups (all ). Interleukin- (IL-) 1β, nuclear factor-κB (NF-κB), and inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) mRNA expression increased after the rats inhaled sevoflurane in the Aβ-treated group (both ). There were no significant differences in the change of GFAP, IBA1, Bcl-xL, caspase-9, RAGE, BDNF, IL-1β, NF-κB, and iNOS in the NS + O2 and NS + sevo group (all ). Conclusion. Sevoflurane exacerbates cognitive impairment induced by Aβ1–40 in rats through initiating neurotoxicity, neuroinflammation, and neuronal apoptosis in rat hippocampus.
          Minister defends Finland's push to clear forests for biofuels      Cache   Translate Page      

In a report issued on Monday, the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) emphasized the importance of forests as a natural carbon sink in the fight against global warning, advising countries to halt deforestration if at all possible.

Ministry for Economic Affairs Mika Lintilä appeared on Yle's Aamu-tv breakfast programme on Tuesday to respond to renewed criticism of the government's biofuel push, inspired by the IPCC report. Opponents say increased harvesting in Finnish forests is not sustainable, nor is it the right path for Finland to follow.

"It is the right one, and the thing I am most pleased about, is that Finnish businesses see it more as an opportunity than a threat," the minister said.

He added that plans for a new biofuel refinery will not be reconsidered in light of the IPCC's comments. A Chinese-owned company named Kaidi plans to build a biodiesel refinery in Kemi that will produce 200,000 metric tons of biofuel per year in 2019.

"We have to work to move away from fossil fuels towards renewable energy," Lintilä said. "We have to remember that our need for energy is forecast to grow. We have to produce this energy somehow, and in my understanding, the desire to increase nuclear power is quite low. This is a difficult problem we have to confront."

One of the main objectives of Finnish Prime Minister Juha Sipilä's government upon gaining office was making Finland a "pioneer in the bioeconomy" , in other words, the use of renewable, bio-based natural resources, environmentally friendly clean technologies and efficient recycling of materials.

A specific goal of this push was a goal to increase the use of wood as a source of renewable biofuel energy by 15 million cubic metres a year. Finland has plentiful forests, as over three-quarters of its land area is covered by trees. In 2016, slightly over 17 percent of this forest land was protected.

          Why More Dictators Are Killing and Abducting Dissidents Abroad      Cache   Translate Page      

In Sheridan Circle on Washington’s Embassy Row lies a small plaque, little noticed by both tourists and locals, marking the spot where a car bomb killed Chilean diplomat-turned-think-tanker Orlando Letelier along with his American co-worker Ronni Moffitt in 1976. Letelier, since leaving Chile, had become a leading critic of Augusto Pinochet’s regime, and declassified documents later showed that the dictator had directly ordered the killing.

A dictatorship killing one of its citizens on the streets of a foreign capital is a brazen act but is by no means unheard of. Social scientists have traditionally defined a state as the entity that controls the use of physical force for domination within a given territory. But states, particularly those of an authoritarian bent, have frequently sought to project violence against dissidents and defectors far beyond their borders. An effective authoritarian state needs its most prominent critics to know that an ice ax in the back is still a possibility, even if they leave.

While it’s not exactly a new phenomenon, as Letelier and numerous other historical cases prove, the killing or abduction of foreign critics by authoritarian regimes appears to be alarmingly normalized today. Also alarming: Some of the countries where these crimes take place seem uninterested in doing anything to stop them.

Last week, Jamal Khashoggi, a prominent Saudi journalist and critic of its ruling royal family living in exile in the United States, visited the Saudi consulate in Istanbul to obtain a document related to his upcoming wedding. He has not been heard from since then, and Turkish officials reportedly believe he was murdered by a special team sent from Saudi Arabia.

Saudi Arabia’s government has been brutal to dissidents and opponents, and technically speaking Khashoggi entered Saudi territory when he went inside the consulate building, but he had apparently been unconcerned, telling friends before his disappearance that he had been treated well during previous visits to Saudi embassies and consulates. His fiancée says he told her not to worry, since “they would not dare attempt anything within Turkey’s borders.”

Then again, perhaps no one should assume they are safe from a government that more or less took the prime minister of Lebanon hostage for several days last year. Ghanem al-Dosary, a London-based Saudi dissident, told the New York Times that Khashoggi’s disappearance was a message from the regime to its critics “that our hands can reach you wherever you are.”

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has demanded that the Saudi government prove its claim that Khashoggi walked out of the consulate unharmed. While a reasonable request, this umbrage is somewhat ironic given Turkey’s own pursuit of its critics abroad. Under Erdogan, the Turkish government has launched an aggressive crackdown on supporters of Fethullah Gülen, the influential and controversial cleric it accuses of orchestrating a failed 2016 coup. Thousands of accused Gülenists, including U.S. citizens, have been arrested, and the manhunt has gone global as well. Often, this is a matter of pushing foreign governments to extradite Gülenists back to Turkey, but sometimes the line between arrest and abduction has been blurred. In March, six Gülenists in Kosovo were shipped back to Turkey after being arrested over links to Gülenists schools, but Kosovo’s prime minister said he had not been aware of the operation, and local media dubbed it a “kidnapping.” In July, the government of Mongolia prevented what appeared to be an attempted abduction of a Gülenist school leader. Then there’s Gülen himself: Special counsel Robert Mueller is reportedly looking into allegations, corroborated by former CIA Director James Woolsey, that Turkish officials had met with former U.S. National Security Adviser and unacknowledged Turkey lobbyist Michael Flynn to discuss a plan to abduct the cleric from his compound in Pennsylvania and deliver him back to Turkey. And that’s not to mention the beating of protesters in Washington by Erdogan’s own bodyguards in 2017.

Of course, the most prominent recent attack by an authoritarian government on an exiled critic was the poisoning of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter in England in March, an attack that Vladimir Putin’s government has only half-heartedly tried to deny. According to a BuzzFeed investigation last year, U.S. authorities believe that as many as 14 people, including billionaire Boris Berezovsky, whose death had been ruled a suicide in 2013, had been killed by Russian secret services in Britain in recent years. Dozens more opponents of the Putin regime have been killed under suspicious circumstances abroad.

China has also been reaching across borders to pursue its critics. Prominent dissidents have been reportedly abducted from Thailand and sent back to China for detention. As for foreign-residing Uighurs—the Muslim minority that Beijing has recently been repressing in a brutal campaign that’s been dubbed a “cultural genocide”—the authorities’ preferred tactic appears to be threatening their families living within China unless they return home.

Last week also saw the bizarre disappearance and resignation of Meng Hongwei, the Chinese official who led Interpol, in what appeared to be a highly unusual move by a state government against the leader of a major international organization, all the more troubling since the exact charges against Meng have not been made public.

Numerous other examples abound. Two women are currently on trial in Malaysia over the killing—likely in cooperation, willing or not, with North Korean operatives—of Kim Jong-nam, brother of the current North Korean leader. The government of Iran stands accused by French authorities of orchestrating the attempted bombing of a meeting of a prominent exile group in Paris.

The response of the governments of countries where these incidents happen has often been muted—and that’s a problem. The British government’s tepid reaction to the 2006 poisoning of former FSB agent Alexander Litvinenko very well could have led Vladimir Putin to conclude there would be little consequence for pulling the same stunt there again.

Often diplomatic considerations are behind these muted reactions. France, for instance, is unlikely to press its case against Iran too hard, given that it’s currently trying to preserve what’s left of the 2015 nuclear deal.

It’s hard to make those sorts of excuses for President Donald Trump, who has spoken approvingly of how leaders like Putin, Xi Jinping, Kim Jong-un, and Erdogan conduct their business. When Putin suggested allowing Russian investigators to question 11 U.S. citizens he views as enemies, including former Ambassador Michael McFaul, in exchange for “cooperation” in the investigation of 2016 election interference, Trump called it an “incredible offer.” Trump was also reportedly reluctant and angry about the expulsion of Russian diplomats in response to the Skripal poisoning.

After days of silence over the alleged abduction and possible murder of Khashoggi, Trump, who often touts his close relationship with the Saudi royal family, finally acknowledged that there were some “pretty bad stories” going around about the journalist and U.S.
resident’s fate and said, “Hopefully that will sort itself out.” The Saudis are probably not too worried about a fierce U.S. response at this point.

But if we’re going to fault Trump’s rhetoric for contributing to the sense of impunity felt by authoritarian governments, we should also acknowledge Barack Obama’s covert drone campaign in Pakistan, Yemen, and Somalia. This isn’t to draw any moral equivalence between the targeting of members of groups like al-Qaida, the Taliban, and ISIS and the murders and abductions of dissidents and journalists by dictatorships. But the targeted killing of a country’s enemies outside a declared battlefield was once considered exceptional, and the U.S. has helped make it routine.

More disturbing still may be the possibility that state violence is becoming globalized. The human rights community, more often than not, views the world in terms of distinct countries, classifying them as “free” or “unfree.” The much-maligned International Criminal Court is hamstrung by the fact that its jurisdiction is limited to only the countries that accept it.

Once upon a time, it was thought that globalization would undermine authoritarian systems in individual states as economic liberalization and new forms of communications overwhelm their defenses against outside influence. But the influence, of course, ended up going both ways. Today, we live in a world where China’s economic clout influences what classes are taught at U.S. universities and what movies are produced by Hollywood. The same internet that brings Western media into Russia allows the Russian state to influence elections around the world.

Authoritarian states clearly do not feel their authority is limited by state borders. So it’s no surprise they don’t feel their ability to inflict violence is limited either.


           Kim Jong Un wants Pope Francis to visit North Korea      Cache   Translate Page

SEOUL, South Korea — North Korean leader Kim Jong Un wants Pope Francis to visit the officially atheist country, South Korea said Tuesday.

South Korea’s presidential office said in a statement that Kim told President Moon Jae-in during their summit last month that the pope would be “enthusiastically” welcomed in North Korea.

Kim has been intensely engaged in diplomacy in recent months in what’s seen as an effort to leverage his nuclear weapons program for an easing of economic sanctions and military pressure.

North Korea strictly controls the religious activities of its people, and a similar invitation for then-Pope John Paul II to visit after a 2000 inter-Korean summit never resulted in a meeting. The Vatican insisted at the time that a papal visit would only be possible if Catholic priests were accepted in North Korea.

Moon plans to convey Kim’s desire for a papal visit when he travels to the Vatican next week. Moon said on Monday that he expects Kim to visit Russia soon and possibly hold a summit with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.


The Vatican did not comment on the possibility of a papal visit. But immediately after the news, the Vatican press office released a statement confirming that the pope would receive South Korea’s president in an audience at the Vatican on Oct. 18.

Vatican spokesman Greg Burke said the audience will come a day after the Vatican secretary of state, Cardinal Pietro Parolin, celebrates a Mass for peace on the Korean Peninsula in St. Peter’s Basilica, where Moon will participate.

Francis visited South Korea in August 2014. On the plane ride back to Rome, he expressed hope that the divisions would be overcome, saying “the two Koreas are brothers, they speak the same language.”

“When you speak the same language it is because you have the same mother, and this gives us hope,” the pope said. “The suffering of the division is great, and I understand this and pray that it ends.”

North Korea’s reported overture comes a few weeks after the Vatican signed a landmark deal with Communist China, North Korea’s closest ally, over bishop nominations, aimed at ending decades of tensions that contributed to dividing the Chinese church and hampered efforts at improving relations between China and the Vatican.

Following an unusually provocative run of weapons tests last year, Kim has been on a diplomatic offensive since the start of this year.

He initiated offers for summits with Seoul and Washington, which led to three meetings with Moon and a highly choreographed June summitwith U.S. President Donald Trump at which they issued an aspirational goal of a nuclear-free peninsula, without describing how or when it would occur.

Kim has presented himself as an international statesman, sharing food, wine and laughs with South Korean officials and appearing thoroughly at ease during his meeting with Trump in Singapore.

But post-summit nuclear negotiations between North Korea and the United States got off to a rocky start, with the North accusing Washington of making “gangster-like” unilateral demands for denuclearization, and calling for sanctions to be lifted before any further progress in nuclear talks.

There are doubts whether Kim is willing to fully relinquish his country’s nuclear weapons, which he may see as a stronger guarantee of survival than whatever security assurances the United States could provide.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo visited Kim in Pyongyang, North Korea’s capital, on Sunday for talks on setting up a second summit with Trump.

The Vatican’s priests were expelled by North Korea long ago and state-appointed laymen officiate services.

Estimates of the number of North Korean Catholics range from 800 to about 3,000, compared to more than 5 million in South Korea.

          WHO GOES FIRST, TRUMP OR THE IRANIAN AYATOLLAHS?      Cache   Translate Page      

From an Israeli perspective, the race is now on. Will US President Donald Trump succeed in reigning in the fanatical regime in Iran that is bent on destroying Israel, or will he himself be toppled from power? At this point, it is impossible to predict. But for the vast majority of Israelis, there is no doubt that the current US President is a far better friend to Israel than his predecessor Barack Obama, who extended the Islamist regime a ten-year reprice (now down to seven) to start up again their nuclear weapons program. In return, Obama led a huge international bailout program for Iran that enables the regime to make more mischief throughout the Middle East and one day acquire nuclear weapons to attack the Jewish state. Can anyone in their right mind doubt that the Iranian regime, which persecutes its own people, is any less racist than Adolf Hitler and his Nazi cohorts? Yet, former US President Barack Obama and his sidekick, John Kerry, only reacted, when prodded several years ago by Bibi Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak, to launch a preemptive strike against Iran if nothing was done to prevent them from acquiring nuclear weapons. But Obama and his international partners took the easy way out by simply kicking the can down the road and leaving it to a future president, in this case, Donald Trump, to handle the threat.

Probablemente nunca has oído hablar de estas grandes científicas, así que presta atención #source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Llevo toda la semana observando con una mezcla de curiosidad e inspiración los pósters que llegan a mi departamento con imágenes de grandes científicas, matemáticas e ingenieras, muchas de las cuales eran desconocidas para mí o para el resto de mis compañeros pese a que entre sus logros se incluyan revolucionar el álgebra, desarrollar el primer tratamiento contra la leucemia o descubrir los procesos fundamentales de la física.

Lo extraordinario es que se trata de mujeres y forma parte de una campaña para conmemorar el Día Internacional de la Mujer. Normalmente cuando pensamos en científicas la primera que se nos viene a la cabeza es Marie Curie, pero muchas veces ahí se queda la cosa. Resulta vergonzoso que apenas haya científicas famosas con todos los hitos que han conseguido durante el último siglo, sobre todo teniendo en cuenta que lo han tenido más difícil por el simple hecho de ser mujer.

Por eso me gustaría hablar de cinco mujeres cuyos impresionantes descubrimientos y contribución a la ciencia merecen ser tan reconocidos y respetados como los de de Marie Curie.

Rosalind Franklin: cristalografía

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

Solamente ahora se ha empezado a reconocer la importancia de Rosalind Franklin (1920-1958), una química responsable de gran parte de la investigación sobre cristalografía de rayos X que fue esencial para el descubrimiento de la famosa estructura del ADN de doble hélice.

Esta científica tuvo que trabajar en un ambiente muy lejos de ser inclusivo para las mujeres; la actitud de sus compañeros hacia ella se refleja en el libro de James Watson La Doble Hélice en el que habla de ella desde la superioridad y refiriéndose a ella como "Rosy", un apodo que sabemos que no le gustaba nada. Trágicamente, Franklin murió de cáncer de ovario en 1958 cuando solamente tenía 37 años. Cuatro años más tarde sus compañeros Francis Crick, James Watson y Maurice Wilkins fueron galardonados con el Premio Nobel de Fisiología o Medicina, omitiendo cualquier referencia a Franklin en su discurso de aceptación.

Lise Meitner: Física nuclear

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

Lise Meitner (1878-1968) fue una física austriaca. No solamente fue la segunda mujer en obtener un doctorado en física en la Universidad de Viena en 1906, sino que también fue la primera mujer en Alemania en asumir el cargo de profesora titular de física en 1926. La anexión de Austria por la Alemania nazi en 1938 obligó a Meitner a huir de Alemania debido a su ascendencia judía.

Meitner y Otto Hahn descubrieron la fisión nuclear en 1939, pero el Premio Nobel de Química de 1944 sólo fue concedido a Hahn, quien restó importancia a la contribución de Meitner. El hecho fue relatado posteriormente en la revista Physics Today como "un caso raro en el que las opiniones personales negativas de una persona aparentemente supusieron la exclusión de un científico meritorio".

Mary Anning: Paleontología

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

Mary Anning (1799-1847) fue una paleontóloga autodidacta de orígenes humildes nacida en la localidad de Lyme Regis, en el suroeste de Inglaterra. Sus descubrimientos del primer ictiosaurio completo en 1811 y de un plesiosaurio completo en 1823 la convirtieron en una experta en fósiles y geología que desempeñó un papel clave en el establecimiento de la paleontología como nueva disciplina científica.

Su trabajo era una gran fuente de documentación para muchos de sus compañeros masculinos, a pesar de que, como mujer, no era elegible para formar parte del Instituto Geológico de Londres. Sin embargo, para cuando murió de cáncer de mama a los 47 años, Anning ya se había ganado el respeto de los científicos y del público en general por su trabajo.

Gertrude Elion: Farmacología

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

Gertrude Elion (1918-1999) se graduó en química en el Hunter College de Nueva York en 1937, pero no pudo completar sus estudios de posgrado debido a la Gran Depresión y pasó un tiempo trabajando como asistente de laboratorio (por 20 dólares a la semana) y como profesora hasta que obtuvo un puesto de auxiliar en la compañía Burroughs-Wellcome.

Fue ahí donde desarrolló Purinethol, el primer tratamiento para la leucemia, el medicamento antipalúdico Pirimetamina y aciclovir, un tratamiento para el herpes vírico que aún hoy se sigue vendiendo como Zovirax. Más tarde, Elion supervisó la adaptación de Azidotimidina, el primer tratamiento para el SIDA. En reconocimiento a sus logros fue galardonada con el Premio Nobel de Fisiología o Medicina en 1988, a pesar de no haber completado nunca su doctorado.

Jocelyn Bell Burnell: Astrofísica

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

Con un doctorado en astrofísica de la Universidad de Cambridge, Jocelyn Bell (1943-) se dedicó al desarrollo de un radiotelescopio durante sus estudios de posgrado con el que descubrió una señal de radio repetida que, aunque inicialmente fue descartada por sus colegas, acabó vinculándola a una estrella de neutrones en rotación, lo que más tarde se conocería como púlsar. Gracias al descubrimiento de Jocelyn de las señales de radio de los púlsares, algo que ha sido descrito como "el mayor descubrimiento astronómico del siglo XX", su supervisor y uno de sus colegas fueron galardonados con el Premio Nobel de Física en 1974.

Burnell fue completamente omitida como coganadora, ante la indignación de muchos destacados astrónomos de la época. Sin embargo, Burnell ha recibido muchos otros premios y honores, siendo Presidenta de la Royal Astronomical Society y la primera mujer presidenta del Instituto de Física del Reino Unido. También fue nombrada Dama Comendadora de la Orden del Imperio Británico (DBE) en 2007.

Inspiración

Decidí estudiar química porque me apasiona entender el mundo que me rodea y poder usar la ciencia para ayudar a la gente. Lo que he aprendido sobre estas mujeres que nunca tiraron la toalla me ha dado fuerzas cuando más me costaba seguir trabajando en mi tesis. Las dificultades a las que se tuvieron que enfrentar en sus carreras fueron gigantescas en comparación a las de hoy.

No sólo eso, sino que también me ha hecho pensar en todas las increíbles mujeres con las que tengo el privilegio de llevar a cabo mi investigación, puesto que paso tiempo con científicos de muchas disciplinas que me inspiran a diario. Aunque las mujeres sigamos siendo minoría entre los científicos, no es algo que afecta a nuestra capacidad de llevar a cabo una ciencia intuitiva y revolucionaria tanto ahora como en el futuro.

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



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

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

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

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

A máfia khazariana vem torturando, assassinando e canibalizando crianças numa escala horrorosa, que e o mundo está prestes a descobrir, quando os tribunais militares começarem. Algumas imagens e testemunhos muito perturbadores enviados pelo Departamento de Polícia de Nova York e pela CIA mostram o quanto a máfia khazariana, realmente, é má. Essas pessoas estão além da verdade e da reconciliação e não merecedoras, sequer, de uma morte rápida.

Vamos começar com as estatísticas do FBI sobre crianças desaparecidas nos EUA, para que os céticos possam evitar que o completo mal desses atos obstruam suas mentes. Em 2015, 442.032 jovens desapareceram; desses, 42.032 não foram encontrados.

Ainda mais horripilante, é o vídeo ainda gravado abaixo, enviado à CIA, via correio pelo NYPD. Ele mostra uma menina cujo rosto foi supostamente arrancado por Hillary Clinton num ritual satânico. Estejam avisados, é impressionante e parei de assistir logo após a marca de 2 minutos.

Agora, começo a entender o olhar de puro horror na face de George Soros quando, lhe fiz uma pergunta numa conferência de imprensa sobre as famílias que são proprietárias do Federal Reserve Board (FRB). Ele provavelmente tinha visto algumas dessas coisas em primeira mão.

A acusação contra esses criminosos está programada para finalmente começar, agora, que o apoio do governo militar dos EUA ao presidente Donald Trump garantiu a maioria na Suprema Corte com a confirmação do Juiz, Brett Kavanaugh, segundo fontes do Pentágono. "O Procurador-Geral Jeff Sessions, já se reuniu com o real promotor especial, o advogado norte-americano John Huber, em Utah, para que as 57 mil acusações possam ser reveladas", explicam as fontes.

Na Suprema Corte, a posse de Kavanaugh deve desencadear a desclassificação do FISA e outros documentos, bem como tribunais militares", dizem as fontes que, além disso, acrescentam: "O Senado aprovou por unanimidade uma resolução pedindo a desclassificação dos documentos do 11 de Setembro, de modo que o cenário está pronto para a derrubada dos Sionistas e do estado profundo".

Outro aspecto para iniciar o processo contra esses criminosos, é a ação militar em andamento, dos EUA e Rússia, contra o estado pária de Israel, dizem as fontes. Em particular, “uma guerra eletrônica russa que visa não apenas impor uma zona de exclusão aérea sobre Israel, mas também impedir que os ICBMs e outros mísseis sejam lançados, tornando uma opção Sansão obsoleta e tornando o desarmamento, a única opção viável”, explicam fontes do Pentágono. Em outras palavras, Israel não pode mais usar chantagem nuclear para proteger os satanistas nos EUA. Além disso, fontes da P2 do Vaticano, confirmam que o primeiro-ministro israelense, Benjamin Netanyahu, é um satanista e assassino em massa, que precisa ser preso ou morto o mais rápido possível.

EUA e a Rússia, também, estão considerando impor um bloqueio naval e terrestre a Israel, para forçar aquele estado a parar com suas atividades criminosas, continuam as fontes que, inclusive, enviaram a foto abaixo com a explicação de que: “Até a Casa Branca declarou o Outubro Vermelho”.


As fontes do Pentágono, também, disseram que: "Parece que a cabala escura pode ter perdido uma base submarina ou submersa e retaliado, enviando ricina para o Secretário de Defesa James Mattis e ao Chefe Naval John Richardson".

O que as fontes do Pentágono estavam se referindo, foi a destruição de uma "residência de fuga de Clinton com sua comitiva, incluindo um bunker subterrâneo, construído para armazenar seu ouro", segundo fontes da CIA, na Indonésia.

Essa destruição está nas notícias como o recente tsunami que atingiu a Indonésia, que mesmo os especialistas citados pelo Washington Post notam "... não foi um evento direto", disse Adam Switzer, investigador principal do Earth Observatory, em Cingapura. "Este terremoto foi além dos limites dos sistemas de alerta disponíveis”.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/asia_pacific/not-a-straightforward-event-how-multiples-disasters-stunned-experts-and-ravaged-a-corner-of-indonesia/2018/10/06/4394e20c-c967-11e8-b2b5-79270f9cce17_story.html

Aqui a explicação real, segundo a CIA:


“Clinton estava no controle do ouro que sai da mina de Grasberg/Freeport. A Clinton Foundation/Clinton Global Initiative, com um escritório em Papua, foi o veículo para a lavagem do dinheiro obtido com a venda do ouro não declarado. (Um lote desse ouro era off-ledger).

https://www.clintonfoundation.org/clinton-global-initiative/commitments/integrated-malaria-control-program-drc-papua-indonesia

Clinton fez negócios com uma certa facção de militares indonésios durante anos - aqueles que controlam o acesso lá.

Os chineses confirmaram tudo isso e sabiam que o único jeito era inundá-lo. Um tsunami foi desencadeado pelos chineses.

“Um tsunami – cientificamente - impossível. Tudo foi cuidadosamente feito e, em seguida, culparam a tecnologia defeituosa e um ângulo de deslizamento de falhas "estranho". Todavia, a razão desse ângulo de falha “estranho” (se você perguntar aos geólogos) é porque não foi natural.

Sistemas de comunicação podem ser manipulados. É por isso que não conseguiu mostrar o terceiro tsunami. Esse sistema de alerta de tsunamis funcionou desde que o desenvolveram após o desastre de Natal de 2004.

“Existem lasers não visíveis que não têm cor no espectro visível. Isso vai além do DEW (Armas de Energia Dirigida), além de uma DEW, um laser não visível. Os militares chineses são inteligentes – um laser indetectável. Pegaram a tecnologia DEW e a tornaram melhor.

“Este foi um golpe direto de uma arma a laser não visível disparado de um satélite. Tirou do mapa a residência de fuga de Clinton, o séquito que vivia lá e o bunker subterrâneo. Infelizmente, houve sérios danos colaterais”.

Fontes da CIA dizem que cerca de US $ 500 milhões em dinheiro (não US $ 270 milhões, como foi divulgado na semana passada) foram apreendidos pelas Forças Especiais na operação contra o esconderijo de Clinton, antes de sua destruição. Uma captura de tela do Google Earth do complexo destruído está abaixo.


O dinheiro foi dividido “entre um certo grupo de altos funcionários do governo indonésio - sendo um deles o Vice-Presidente Jusuf Kalla - e o círculo interno de Trump, incluindo militares”, dizem as fontes. Então, agora sabemos por que a ricina foi enviadaparaos generais.

Também nos foi permitido dar aos nossos leitores mais informações sobre uma de nossas fontes da CIA,  encarregada dos serviços clandestinos da agência em Jacarta, trabalhando na Embaixada dos EUA, de 1965 a 1985.

“Quando estava lá, ele me disse que havia apenas 20 cidadãos americanos permanentemente vivendo em Jacarta. Todos trabalhavam na embaixada sob cobertura diplomática. Ele me disse, e esta é uma citação, "Nossa equipe tirou Bung Karno (Presidente Sukarno) para fora e instalamos Soeharto no poder".

“Sim, sua equipe, bem como a sede de Langley e outras agências do alfabeto estiveram envolvidas na assistência de Soeharto no assassinato de até 1 milhão de chineses indonésios, que foram rotulados como PKI (Partai Komunis Indonesia). Esta foi uma derrubada bem planejada de toda, assim chamada, oposição a Soeharto, que, também, foi planejado com o governo australiano, que estava fortemente envolvido nessa tentativa de genocídio. Foi nessa época que Soeharto entregou o controle de Freeport à Agência. Há muito mais para isso, todavia, isso é o suficiente, por enquanto.”

“Perguntei ao caubói por que ele fez isso e sua resposta foi: "Era o meu trabalho. Eu trabalhei para o governo dos EUA. Você não me perguntou naquela época. Se tivesse feito isso isso, você sumiu.”Ele disse que pessoalmente estava envolvido no envio de dois navios cargueiros, carregados de arroz para Kalimantan, pois eles não tinham comida e os Dayaks e Malays estavam morrendo de fome durante a crise, assim, que todos os embarques de arroz de Jacarta foi paralisado. (Ele fez isso com pessoal privado). E, acrescentou mais, sim, ele estave próximo do cartel de Bush pai, no passado. Ele fazia parte da velha guarda. Agora, não sobraram muitos.”

Numa nota final, nossa fonte que está conectada às bases secretas da Antártida (ele é um parente do almirante Richard Byrd famoso na exploração da Antártica) voltou a nós, para insistir que algo realmente estranho estava acontecendo lá, dizendo que a citação abaixo da última a semana foi verdadeira:

“Está se abrindo um BURACO DE MINHOCA na Antártida. Sim, uma "abertura" para outras dimensões lá embaixo, devido às mudanças magnéticas extremamente altas ACONTECENDO em e nas proximidades da Antártida que, literalmente, está"rasgando um novo tecido" no campo dimensional. Esta é a razão pela qual todos esses líderes de governo foram até lá. É por isso que eles isolaram a Antártica para o público e assim por diante. O público recebe apenas 5% da "história". E agora, temos o outro lado."

Essa fonte observou que até mesmo publicações conceituadas como a Scientific American informavam: "Há algo misterioso vindo do solo congelado na Antártida e que poderia quebrar os conceitos da fisica como a conhecemos".

https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/bizarre-particles-keep-flying-out-of-antarcticas-ice-and-they-might-shatter-modern-physics/

Vamos tentar novamente visitar a Antártica neste verão do Hemisfério Sul e reportar diretamente de lá, para nossos leitores o que realmente está acontecendo. Se, realmente, existe uma anomalia como um buraco de minhoca se abrindo lá, toda a população do planeta deve ser informada e mostrada as provas, não apenas para alguns líderes.

Vincenzo Mazzara, Cavaleiro Teutônico e um dos principais membros da loja maçônica P2, do Vaticano, diz que estão sendo feitos preparativos para a humanidade começar a construir uma frota naves mães e se expandir para o Universo.

Como sempre, minha reação a esse tipo de coisa é ver para crer. Por enquanto, a Sociedade Dragão Branco está trabalhando para obter financiamento multimilionário para uma campanha massiva com os pés na Terra, para acabar com a pobreza e deter a destruição ambiental.

          Comment on Ocasio-Cortez and other new Dems ‘need to be educated’ on Israel, says Rep. Eliot Engel by US Citizen      Cache   Translate Page      
No one 'needs to be educated about israel' and I hope they reject any such 'education'. It’s time for progressive politicians to put Palestinian rights on the agenda, stop being bullied by AIPAC, and get with the program, or else they are going to lose the support of the constituents they need to get elected- if not today, then tomorrow. People understand dollars and cents. Make people endorsed/beholden to AIPAC and people like Engel and his ilk - the people who run on or promote a pro-israel position - defend giving 11 millions dollars a day to a 'vibrant democracy' when our own are going without. After being elected they should ban AIPAC from their congressional offices as well and if AIPAC attempts to smear them resort to going nuclear with the 11 million dollars a day and make THEM justify it. Spell it out for them and shame these israel firsters/AIPACers. It's long overdue. When the US and international community start applying pressure on the israelis to actually accept living in peace next to Palestine let me know. Until then all of their numerous proxy organizations on the ground are just producing anti-Palestinian/Islamophobic propaganda and I will treat it accordingly as the trash and sewage that it is.

HACIA LA FORMACION DEL CRIOLLO ¡¡¡VOLKSSTURM!!! De aquí en más doy por inaugurada una nueva etapa comunicacional para con los Hermanos de mi Patria. Entre los que he de exceptuar a todos los que han medrado con el bienestar económico, moral y emocional de los mas indefensos que, como siempre fueron, son y ansío que dejen de ser los más numerosos. Asumiendo el riesgo que estos nuevos giros gramaticales, pueden aparentar como un tanto cursis. Pero a pesar de ello correré el riesgo, porque con razón o sin ella, creo que llegó el tiempo de las arengas disuasivas, en lugar de las reflexivas pretéritas sin efecto alguno. Todos los que redactamos artículos y somos a su vez apasionados lectores, de cuanto no publican los medios corporativos, que nos consideran como nulos aportantes de cuestionamientos revulsivos, contamos al menos con algunos portales que difunden estas entregas, aun consideradas como panfletarias. Veremos qué acontece en unos meses. Pero aunque podamos, no debemos aguardar que estos capitanes de la industria audiovisual, adviertan que cuando caiga este telón de iniquidades, ellos también caerán y por cierto que harán más ruido que el puñado que somos todos nosotros juntos. Entonces, hacia el tema de hoy me encamino, principiando con lo vernáculo: La banca privada argentina, aunque existe una autocensura pedorrística que lo silencia a sabiendas -lean bien- ESTÁ A PUNTO DE INGRESAR EN LA BANCARROTA. No precisamente, porque depositantes, cuentacorrentistas y ahorristas, concurran el mañana lunes a retirar masivamente depósitos en efectivo que, no atesoran porque en su reemplazo, están pletóricos de bonos de la deuda pública. El motivo que los mantiene inquietos a todos estos usureros cartelizados bajo una fachada lícita es otro. Relacionado estrictamente al desplome irredento de sus cotizantes paquetes accionarios en Wall Street. Que a lo largo del año en curso han perdido entre el SESENTA/SETENTA POR CIENTO DE SUS VALORES. Esa sibilina pero constante depreciación es la única que impide su retracción hacia la suba. Todo el resto de las empresas argentinas están sufriendo idéntica suerte, porque nuestros activos nada valen. Y esa, descartando cualquiera otra, es la inadvertida cimiente de nuestro derrumbe institucional, financiero y ocupacional. Con lenguaje más doméstico, la Patria está en quebranto y sin capacidad de endeudamiento adicional factible. Ya en absoluto impeditivo, para que dicho retroactivo efecto subsane esta demencial política económica de inyectar circulante como el del viernes, en el que se lanzaron al circuito CUATRO MIL MILLONES DE DÓLARES EN PESOS, apenas para evitar que la lechuga trepara a cuarenta y siete pesos en una sola rueda. Estos economistas de utilería: Ferreres, Broda, Kiguel y Marx que hicieron ropa para la foto días pasados en el Banco Central, además de canallitas, son un conjunto de imbéciles por validar la mera apariencia de normalidad cambiaria. También deberán de responder por sus ilimitados crímenes en pocos meses y por encubrimiento. Ciento cuarenta y tres mil de cuatrocientas sesenta mil Pymes, ya bajaron sus persianas: -Período 2017-2018- Algunas, muy pocas, con sus propietarios dentro para cancelar los pasivos laborales y la inmensa mayoría, abandonadas a su suerte junto con los obreros. Aquí, los especialistas del Banco Mundial, estiman que a este ritmo de constantes y nuevas fallidas, ese universo de pequeños y medianos emprendimientos será reducido en dos tercios adicionales para febrero/2019. Sin un equipo de recambio para desplazar a esta murga PRO, no se debe esforzar demasiado la mente humana, para decodificar lo que ello implicará. Nada más ni menos que la plenitud anárquica en su máximo esplendor. Y es por ello que desacredito de continuo y censuro a la prensa corporativa. Lo resumiré en dos parámetros: A) Cuando el bobo de Bonelli y el otro papafrita cuyo apellido no recuerdo, convocan a tantos desvergonzados a ese somnoliento espacio, no interrumpen la encuesta para interrogarlos acerca de las causas penales que tienen en trámite. Y nadie junto con ellos saca los pies del plato. Ni Morales Solá, ni los Leucovich y menos aun la Doctora Nelson Castro quien no satisfecha con su propio rol de marica, presenta un imitador clon. En ese sentido les otorgo algo más de crédito a Wiñazki y a su compañera que al menos no hacen de la hipocresía, una fachada. Dicen que Scioli cuando se vea cercado por el coimero de Garganta, quien ya no le fía, porque solo se interesa en el contado con liqui, le dará una exclusiva a Perfil y/o La Nación. Consistente en las facturas que por cientos emitió este turquito remendón de Majul durante diez años y que, según dicen, ascienden a entre cinco y seis palos/dólar. Otro que lo pondrá al desnudo al judío renegado Feinman, dicen que será Cristóbal López, quien exhibirá las súplicas felpuderas del primero, para que no lo echase de C5N, a patadas en el orto. Lo que determinó que este último se deshiciera en lisonjas y gratitudes, propias de un supino alcahuete. Y así es todo el resto, incluyendo a ese ganso, apellidado Michelli creo, que abandonó al Trece por ATC y cuando le metieron un voleo, se victimizó, en vez de joderse por dejarse forrear. Y B) Macricio se lamenta y conduele en público por el crecimiento de la pobreza extrema que, dice, ha trepado al 30%. Y todos estos lameculos exponencian esas presidenciales dolencias, ratificando dicho porcentaje. Si damos por sentado que todos los productos de primera necesidad -léase- comestibles, bebidas, artículos de aseo, calzado, indumentaria, espectáculos, limpieza, ferrosos, durables, suntuarios, perecederos y no, tarifas de servicios, combustibles y etc. aumentaron más de un CIENTO VEINTE POR CIENTO ANUAL COMPARADO AL 2017, inclusivo de la canasta básica de alimentos. Y que lo salarios, en el más óptimo de los supuestos, crecieron solo el CUARENTA, existe un escenario social de al menos DIEZ MILLONES DE TRABAJADORES INDIVIDUALES ya inmersos, prácticamente, en la mendicidad ambulante. Si ello es tan solo una verdad de a puño ¿POR QUÉ ESTOS PELOTUDOS PERIODISTAS RESIGNAN SINCERAR LA REALIDAD INDIGENCISTA QUE ES DEL 75%? Y de igual modo ¿qué los impulsa a pronosticar y concordar con el gobierno sobre una inflación acumulativa para diciembre del 50%, cuando triplicará o más ese augurio, si ahora, sin aguardar que lo infausto crezca ya es de casi tres veces lo oficial? En eso exclusivamente anida mi desprecio irreductible por todos estos holgazanes, meros repetidores de datos oficiales, incluyendo a los ¿opositores? como los de Crónica y otros de esa calaña de pseudos & fictos combativos. Toda vez que si lo fuesen en vez de los quintas columnas que son, batirían el parche con las mismas cifras y estadísticas que manejamos nosotros y que no es otra cosa que DATAS PÚBLICAS. No secretos nucleares celosamente custodiados. Y porque esas intrigantes diletancias solo alimentan más desconcierto a una población atónita y desconcertada de cara al futuro inmediato. Haciéndolos, esa inconfesable complicidad con el sistema, como acreedores de los primeros patíbulos cuando los mismos sean erigidos en plazas y parques. Fueron dos Periodistas con mayúsculas, los que tumbaron a un todopoderoso Nixon, quien venía de suturar las heridas de Vietnam, Laos y Camboya; y de abrir a toda la industria gringa las puertas de China Popular. Tan solo porque le mintió al Congreso. Comparemos aquella gesta con esta comparsa parlamentaria que sesiona veinte veces al año y que irremediable y alarmantemente, coloca a esa prostibularia membresía en una endemia de surmenaje. Y en las que todos son valijeados y/o valijeros para levantar la mano, dar quorum o permanecer en sus cubiles. Con todo y demás, nada motiva a estos payasescos locutores -por la carencia de idearios propios- para que se rebelen contra el sistema. No, porque los sobres que salen de 25 de mayo 52, son más tentadores, ya que es un servicio exprés que funciona aceitadamente desde que el Coti & Chupete Applebaum (Manzano) lo activaron desde febrero de 1984 hasta la fecha. Sino, porque todos estos cagatintas son excesivamente baratos. Cuando historiadores ad hoc contratados por el FMI describan el epitafio nuestro mostrenco capítulo democrático, infiero que, iniciarán ese prólogo, afirmando que nuestro exterminio masivo, partió por los pedorristas afines al aparato. Que ocultaron a todos sus congéneres, sobre el gigantesco desborde de los anómalos y mentirosos datos de una Administración solo conspicua hacia los organismos multilaterales de créditos impagables. Solo después de reseñar debidamente a todos estos turritos/orates se avocarán a los jueces y sus miles de trapisondas, y mucho después por legisladores, presidentes y ministros. El capítulo final y epílogo, habrán de depositarlo en una población inconexa y atontada que pese a las prédicas nuestras y de otros, nada hicieron para ponerse a salvo de esos peligros primero y la devastación después. Pero antes que el fin principie, una fuerza irregular, mal armada, sin entrenamiento militar ni previo ni adecuado y compuesta por adolescentes y quizás, muchos ancianos que nada tendrán para perder, improvisen un Ejército. En el que acaso prevalezcan las muletas, por sobre inexistentes bayonetas caladas. Algo por el estilo sucedió en el Berlín de diciembre-1944/mayo-1945. Se lo conoció por LA TORMENTA DEL PUEBLO. Sus casi cuatrocientos mil adherentes, fueron, como muy previsible resultaba imaginar, diezmados en menos de cien días por las hordas de mongoles soviéticos que cegaban todo a su paso, incluyendo la violación y estrangulamiento de TRESCIENTAS MIL INDEFENSAS BERLINESAS. Que en su mayoría, de las sobrevivientes, su integridad optó por el suicidio, por embarazos repudiados, heridas múltiples y/o simplemente el estrés post traumático de algo inolvidable. Traje este fenómeno comparativo a colación, no precisamente por su afinidad al que aquí procurará formarse. Ya que aquél, se integró solo porque no había estacionada en la capital germana, ni una sola División Blindada para defender esa plaza. La desperdigada soldadesca de las Wermacht estaba compuesta por extranjeros. Holandeses de la NSD, belgas del Partido Rex, húngaros de los Arrow Cross y croatas nacionalistas de Pavelich. El resto de los teutones, muertos en combate, capturados o heridos. Todos los historiadores clásicos están contestes que estas guerrillas fueron diezmadas por la superioridad aérea, táctica, logística y sobre todo numérica. Pero al menos, hasta el preciso instante en el que el señor Hitler sucumbió por esa mezcla de un auto disparo en su garganta y la ingesta de cianuro casi en duplicidad, todos estos ancianos y niños NO CAPITULARON. Porque eran muy conscientes que un mandato se les había impuesto. Y muy por sobre ello, porque sabían sin necesidad que se lo explicaran previamente que, el Alto Mando Nacional Socialista, no estaba en fuga ni encubría CORRUPTELA, simplemente porque no la había. Herrmann Göring y algunos cientos fueron la excepción a la regla. El preciso e invaluable documental que, me remitieron mis amigos de Yahoo Grupo Política, a quienes infinitamente les agradezco tal envío, algo de ello semblantea. Exceptuado de una persecución hacia la grey hebrea, azuzada y diseñada por Hitchcock y otros cineastas de Hollywood, como nos lo han introducido falsamente hasta los tuétanos. Algún día que no será hoy, les hablaré no solo de la indulgencia alemana hacia esa etnia, sino de los planes del Almirantazgo de la Kriegsmarine y particularmente del Almirante Erich Raeder y su diseño de refugio para todos los judíos errantes en la Isla de Madagascar. Pero retronando a nosotros, mientras que aquí, sin -todavía- ser sobrevivientes de nada, todos son corruptos sin remedio. Muy saludable sería que la argentinidad -nuestra parte al menos- comience a familiarizarse con una idea madre y es que nos auto impongamos una sola consigna...

          Kim Jong Un invites Pope Francis to meet in Pyongyang      Cache   Translate Page      

Seoul, South Korea, Oct 9, 2018 / 05:40 am (CNA/EWTN News).- North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un has invited Pope Francis to meet in Pyongyang, a South Korean spokesman said Tuesday.

Pope Francis is already set to meet with South Korean President Moon Jae-in Oct. 18 for an audience at the Vatican Apostolic Palace, where Moon will personally deliver the invitation from Kim Jong Un.

President Moon, a Catholic, will also participate in a Mass for peace on the Korean peninsula in St. Peter’s Basilica on Oct. 17 celebrated by the Vatican Secretary of State Cardinal Pietro Parolin. 

During the most recent summit between Korean leaders in September, Kim told Moon that he would “greatly welcome” the pope Pyongyang, according to South Korea’s presidential office. 

On Oct. 7, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met with Kim Jong Un in North Korea to discuss details for a second summit between President Donald Trump and Chairman Kim to continue negotiation of the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula, according to the State Department.

“One of the key pillars of the statement between Chairman Kim and President Trump was that we would have better relationships, confidence-building measures. We would fundamentally change the nature of North Korea’s relationship with the rest of the world,” Secretary Pompeo told press in South Korea on Oct. 8 after the meeting with Kim.

Vatican Secretary for Relations with States Paul Gallagher visited the Joint Security Area on the Demilitarized Zone between North and South Korea on July 5, where he said, “it is a very historic period, a period of hope and the Holy Father is supporting that movement.”

“I am sure with the prayers and support of Christians and other men and women in good faith around the world that many good things will be achieved in the coming months. We pray for that,” Archbishop Gallagher said during the visit.

Diplomatic negotiations continued at the third inter-Korean summit between Kim and Moon, which took place on Sept. 18 in Pyongyang during a week in which Catholics in South Korea celebrated the peninsula's martyr saints.

The First Lady of South Korea, Kim Jung-sook, participated in the Mass with Korean bishops as a part of the festivities. She asked for prayers for the diplomatic negotiations at Seoul’s Myeongdong Cathedral days prior to heading to Pyongyang for the summit.

Twenty-five million people live in North Korea, which has one of the worst human rights records in the world. A United Nations investigation in 2014 produced a 372-page report that documented crimes against humanity, including execution, enslavement, torture, imprisonment, forced abortions, and knowingly causing prolonged starvation.

There are currently an estimated 80,000 to 120,000 people in North Korea’s six political prison camps, in which the U.S. State Department has found evidence of starvation, forced labor, and torture.

South Korean bishops have been leading Catholics in prayer for the reconciliation and unity of the divided Korean peninsula for decades. 

“Since 1965, the Korean Catholic Church has been praying for the true peace of the two Koreas and the reconciliation of the nation,” Archbishop Kim Hee-Jung of Gwangju wrote in April following the first meeting between the Korean leaders. chairman of the Korean bishops’ conference in April.

“Through these prayers, something miraculous is happening in this land by the help of God for whom nothing will be impossible,” Archbishop Kim continued.

“Until the day when complete peace is established on the Korean peninsula and divided peoples are united, the Catholic Church of Korea will accompany the journey for reconciliation of the people in unity.”

          Fantasy Flight Previews Survivors From New California Expansion For Fallout      Cache   Translate Page      

A new expansion for the Fallout boardgame is coming from Fantasy Flight. New California will add in all sorts of new elements, including a whole host of new survivors that you can take out into the radiation-coated wasteland. In this preview, we get a look at them, along with the perks that make them unique.

From the post:

No matter if you're exploring the Commonwealth or wandering through the New California Republic, the world of Fallout is a dangerous place. Everything changed when the bombs fell and, in the wake of total nuclear annhilation, you can’t just wander around wherever you please. Supplies will be scarce, you’re bound to run into some unfriendly types, and hazardous situations seem to be waiting around every corner. Luckily, you’ve got the skills—and gear—it takes to help restore this once-great land to its former glory.

The New California expansion introduces five new survivors to Fallout: The Board Gameand, before anything else, it’s important to get to know who you might be. Each of these plucky newcomers has their own perspective on life in the wasteland, and today, we’re going to take a closer look at just what makes each of them tick!

PRIME MINISTER: I’m very pleased to be joined by the Minister for Health Greg Hunt and the Minister for Senior Australians and Aged Care Ken Wyatt. We’re here to announce today the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety. Just over three weeks ago, I announced together with Greg and with Ken our intention to go forward to establish this Royal Commission. Since then, we have undertaken a very extensive consultation process and I want to thank the more than 5,100 Australians who have engaged with us over the last several weeks as we have worked together, together to form this terms of reference to drive this inquiry. I also had the opportunity, as Ken and Greg did, to meet with many of the sector representatives and many of those stakeholders right across the sector to ensure we had a very keen understanding of the priorities that needed to be addressed as we brought this Royal Commission together.

So I am pleased today to announce the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety has been formally established by the Governor General. I am also very pleased to announce that the commissioners, the Honourable Justice Joseph McGrath and Ms Lynelle Griggs AO have been appointed by the Governor General to lead this important task. Both these individuals have had an enormous volume of experience, an exemplary record of Australian public service throughout their careers, in their respective fields and I am very grateful that they have taken up the invitation to undertake this very important task. They will need to determine the full extent of the problems in aged care and to understand how we can meet the challenges and the opportunities of delivering aged care services now and into the future. This is very much looking at what has happened, but it is also very much about understanding what needs to be done into the future. It is a very future-focused Royal Commission, but we are going to learn from the mistakes and the problems of the past as well.

The Commission will be required to submit their final report to the Governor General no later than, and I stress no later than, the 30th of April 2020, and to provide an interim report no later than the 31st of October 2019. Of course, if the Royal Commission is in a position to provide an earlier report if they believe that they are in a position to do so.

Our Government is committed to providing older Australians with access to care that supports their well-being, the dignity that they deserve, the choices that they are seeking, the comfort and the assurance that their families demand when it comes to making the biggest decision, often, that they have to make about the care of someone they love so deeply. And we need to do it in a way which recognises the contribution of those Australians who are being cared for. Their commitment over a lifetime as an Australian to our community and the service that they have provided. The Royal Commission will be the first step in re-establishing the trust that loved ones will be treated with dignity and respect.

The Royal Commission will be based in Adelaide, but it will also undertake hearings around the country. It will also have the opportunity to take evidence over video and other formats to ensure that people have the opportunity to participate in this very important Royal Commission. We will also recognize, at the end of the day, this is what it is really all about, and this is the major feedback that we have had over the last few weeks as we have consulted, as I said, more than 5,100 Australians. And that is that we need to establish a national culture of respect for senior Australians and Australians as they age. It’s that culture of respect that actually ensures that people are treated with dignity and the care that they deserve.

Now I know right across the sector, as does Ken and as does Greg, we have people working in aged care facilities, caring for young Australians with disabilities living in a residential aged care environment. Those providing in-home care services which are all covered by the terms of reference that we released today. We know that they work hard to provide exactly that care. But we also know that there are too many instances where that has not occurred. So we want to commend those who get up every day and work in our residential aged care facilities and provide that deep loving care that they do every single day they go to work. And I know that they would want, they would want, that all those who they support can have the confidence that all of their friends and all of their families can have confidence about the level of support and care that is provided in our aged care facilities.

So this is an important inquiry, we are very pleased to be in a position that we can do it. I think the country is going to have to brace itself for some difficult stories, some difficult circumstances, some difficult experiences. But that’s part of this process of the Royal Commission, to confront these stories honestly and to confront them in a way that helps us learn, to ensure that they are not repeated in the future. And at the end of the day, the national culture of respect for senior Australians and Australians as they age can become something that as a key outcome, a key product, a key deliverable of undertaking this very important task. I’m going to ask Greg to make a few points about the terms of reference. It mirrors very much what was first outlined a few weeks ago, but there are important additions to that as we have gone through the consultation process and I will also ask Ken to make a few remarks. Thank you. Greg.

MINISTER FOR HEALTH, THE HON GREG HUNT MP: Thanks very much, Prime Minister. This Royal Commission is about respecting and protecting older Australians. As Scott said, ultimately, it is about helping to build a national culture of respect for ageing and our senior Australians, and if we can achieve that, then everything else will follow. So in a way, this could be the most important legacy of everything that we do. By helping to build and helping to foster that culture of respect. In terms of the Royal Commission itself, the commissioners, Justice Joseph McGrath from the Supreme Court of Western Australia, and Lynelle Briggs, former public service Commissioner, former head of Medicare, distinguished career in public service but also now operating within the private sector as well, will bring a fearless and a frank approach. They have been selected, not just because of their history, not just because of their capabilities, but because they will bring a culture of caring and concern, but a frank and fearless approach to the findings that they will make. So now it falls to them to hear the stories, to listen to the concerns of families, to be the custodians of care and concern and future protection for older Australians.

We know, as the Prime Minister says, there will be some difficult times and some difficult stories, but above all else, this is about the future and laying out a foundation for the years to come. That is why the terms of reference are deliberately broad. They deal in particular with the quality and safety in relation to any examples of substandard care, how best to deliver care services, how best to deliver for the increasing number of Australians with dementia. The future challenges and opportunities for delivering accessible and affordable high-quality care. What the government and the aged sector community can do in relation to ensuring quality and safety, allowing people greater choice and control, best delivering services through innovative care and investment and in particular noting the importance of providing options for young people with disabilities who have been placed in an aged care environment and there is also the broad power for the commissioners to examine any matter that they believe are relevant to their inquiries. So they have an area of focus, but they are not constrained in the areas that they can examine as part of that.

So ultimately, this Commission has come about because of the concerns of the Government and the public because of the needs of the present and the importance of planning for the future, but if, at the end of the day, it contributes not just to better care, but a stronger national culture, then it will have been an abiding legacy of decades and generations to come.

MINISTER FOR SENIOR AUSTRALIANS & AGED CARE, THE HON KEN WYATT MP: Thank you very much. This Royal Commission has come about because our Government has listened. We have listened to the families who have been affected, we’ve been listening to those on the ground who have expressed their views. What we want is an aged care sector that is viable and is strong well into the future. A workforce that is trained to meet the needs of people who live not in residential care but in their homes, who have the level of support that is provided.

Geographically, we are a diverse nation. We are a nation of diverse people and in the context of the work that the Royal Commission will undertake, then they will consider the matters that are raised with them by the public during the consultation process. Our Government has been committed to building a stronger and better aged care sector for those who choose to live at home and for those who choose to go into residential aged care. And working with the structures and the structural reforms that are needed, this will give all Australian families a high degree of certainty that the quality of care that is provided in any setting in which they find a loved one will give them the assurance that they will live a quality lifestyle but live with the certainty of knowing that the wrap around services that they need to give them a safe sense of living will be provided into the future.

So I’m looking forward to the work being undertaken, and I certainly thank the Prime Minister for announcing this Royal Commission, which will give Australians greater certainty around aged care.

PRIME MINISTER: Thank you Ken. Well thank you also to Greg and Ken for the great job they’ve done in pulling this together and now the work gets on with it. Happy to take questions on this, let's stay with the Royal Commission at first. I'm sure there are a few other items of the day that we can cover on politics but on aged care?

JOURNALIST: This interim report by 31 October next year, is that enough time?

PRIME MINISTER: I would think so, but again, as is the case with any of these matters, if more time is required, more time will be given. That will be something that will be determined by the Royal Commissioners themselves. Having just announced it, I wouldn’t want to be prejudging those sorts of things. I think that they will get about the task and as is the case always with these sorts of inquiries, if more time is needed or requested, more time is given.

JOURNALIST: Does the Government anticipate that it will implement all the recommendations that are made by this Commission?

PRIME MINISTER: Well again, I’m not going to prejudge the inquiry I think it’s important- I mean we wouldn't be commissioning such an inquiry, if we didn't have such an intention to listen carefully as to what the outcomes and recommendations of the Royal Commission are. That’s why you commission a Royal Commission of this nature.

So, I look forward to it. I look forward to it because I think this will be a watershed in dealing with one of those most difficult of challenges that we have as a society. We are an ageing society like many other countries around the world and demands on our aged care system are changing. This as an important part of the inquiry, I really want this point to be made; it isn't just about the terrible incidents and the neglect and the abuse that have occurred, it’s about how we are going to deal with this problem and this challenge into the future.

More people thankfully are being able to make decisions to remain in their home for longer. That means as they enter into the residential aged care system, their needs are more acute. Last week I was with David Coleman, down in Hurstville and I was talking to leaders of the Chinese community. We are seeing whole cohorts of people from different ethnic groups in Australia now, who have come out in their 20s and 30s and helped build this country and they are now very much moving into the aged care sector. There are particular needs for those types of communities. So, you know, our country is ageing and that brings with it great challenges. What we need to ensure is that culture of respect and that dignity is provided to those senior Australians as they age.

JOURNALIST: There have been some concerns that some of the current reforms will be put on hold or delayed? For example the establishment of the Quality and Safety Commission.

PRIME MINISTER: No they won’t be. We’ll be moving ahead with all of those.

JOURNALIST: So the Commission will be established on the 1st of January next year?

PRIME MINISTER: We will be pushing ahead with all of those, it’s important. Look, the Royal Commission is of course important and it is in addition to all of the things we have already initiated. All of the additional funding we’re already providing and we will be getting on with our job as a Government to deliver quality aged services around the country. The Royal Commissioners will be getting on with their job independently, looking into these issues now and how they’re going to  apply into the future.

MINISTER FOR HEALTH: And in fact, we have just passed legislation to review standards as well as having introduced legislation for the quality and safety commission.

JOURNALIST: If you wanted to encourage good people to join this workforce, is there going to be any financial incentives to help people work in the aged care sector?

PRIME MINISTER: I think these are one of the many issues that will be canvassed by the Royal Commissioners over the course of the inquiry. It’s workforce issues, it’s capability, it’s training, it’s sustainability. They have been the subject of previous inquiries and there have been some mixed recommendations that have come from those. So this is another opportunity I think to test what is really needed here and I’m looking forward to those outcomes as well. Anything else on aged care?

JOURNALIST: Just one last one, will the commission be looking at staffing ratios as part of it’s-?

PRIME MINISTER: Well the general issues of the workforce and how it’s engaging in the sector are covered in the terms of reference. So to the extent that the Royal Commission wants to address those issues, they’re able to do that through their terms of reference.

JOURNALIST: Just on banking today Prime Minister, they’re talking about additional compensation as well as repayment for customers who are mistreated or overcharged. Can you just expand on that and how you expect any compensation will work?

PRIME MINISTER: Well I can’t because they’re not sources from the Government. They’re not reports from the Government, that’s industry scuttlebutt. What the Government has done is set up the Australian Financial Complaints Authority, we have legislated it and its terms and it’s powers and what it plans to do is set out in the legislation. So I must admit, I’m a bit of a loss as to what the source of that other commentary is, because we’ve got another Royal Commission going on into the banking and financial industry currently and if there are reccomendations to come from that that deal with the Australian Financial Complaints Authority, then well and good. But I can’t really comment on something which has not come from the Government and is not currently under consideration by the Government.

JOURNALIST: Can I ask you about population and infrastructure? In 2010 you said it would be disingenuous to suggest keeping migrants in regions would ease congestion in Sydney. Do you still have those views?

PRIME MINISTER: At the time the policy that was being put forward by the Labor Party, I don’t think was really what is being contemplated here by our Government. On the impacts that population has across the country, there are many levers that you can pull. Your migration programme is just one of those.  What I was referring to was migration in isolation being the solution to the system and it’s not, migration is part of a suite of policies that deal with congestion in our cities. That’s why I established a Minister for Population, which was also sitting alongside his responsibilities for Urban Infrastructure, because that is where the solutions to these challenges lay.

The policies that we are looking at carefully, which have been flagged today by Minister Tudge are all about how we align our migration programme with the economic and infrastructure policies of towns, regions and states all around the country. I was down in Tasmania on the weekend and in Tasmania, Premier Hodgman has a population plan. And how we can work in with his plan with the migration programme and our infrastructure programmes and our other policies, is what we are seeking to achieve as a Government. It’s equally true that what we’re talking about here is a very targeted use of our migration powers and our migration programme to ensure that we can direct and encourage those who are coming to the country, initially on a temporary basis and through those nonpermanent visas, to be able to go where there is a need for this labour, where there is a need for population growth and where there is receptivity to it.

I mean this is about actually trying to support, on the ground, the economic and population policies of local communities. It’s about working hand-in-glove with those communities and following their lead and backing them in on the programmes that they have.

JOURNALIST: Will there be extra spending on infrastructure in those regions to accommodate this?

PRIME MINISTER: There already is, that’s the point.

JOURNALIST: More to come?

PRIME MINISTER: This is the point, it’s about ensuring our migration programmes mirror what we’re doing without our infrastructure policies. Now, we’ve got a $75 billion rolling infrastructure program over 10 years, which is rolling out infrastructure all around the country, whether it’s the Midland Highway down in Tasmania or it’s the Northlink over in Perth or wherever it happens to be. And we’re not just talking about regional areas, we’re talking about cities like Adelaide where I know Premier Marshall is very keen, very keen to see population growth increase in South Australia and in Adelaide. I know up in the Northern Territory where Chief Minister Gunner when he was recently in Canberra, was announcing his very strong policy to encourage population growth in the Northern Territory. What we’re seeking to do as a Federal Government, as a national government, is to back in these local state and territory plans. To use the levers we have to realise the objectives which are being set at a local level.

So it’s very targeted, it’s very cooperative, it’s very consultative and it’s using the tools we have to achieve these broader objectives; to reduce congestion in the places which have a congestion problem and to increase economic opportunities in places that are seeking them.

JOURNALIST: If the policy though is going to apply to 45 per cent of the migrants at the most, would you consider introducing caps on say, international students, which does lead to some congestion.

PRIME MINISTER: We’re looking at all of these issues but we’d have to be very careful when it comes to the international education industry, it’s a very significant part of our national economy. It’s a very big part of the Victorian economy as Greg knows in particular.  You carefully consider all of these options but you don't engage in policies which will actually hold our economy back.

We’re for driving our economy forward. The reason we can invest $1 billion and more extra, every year, in aged care, is because as a Government, we’re leading an economy that is growing. An economy, when you grow your economy, when you keep your economy strong, you can afford increases in aged care, you can support additional investment in education and in hospitals, in Medicare. You want a guarantee on Medicare?

The reason we can provide a guarantee on Medicare is because we can grow a stronger economy. We have demonstrated that over the last five years; More than a million Australians have got a job under this government, as we promised they would. We did it before we said that would be achieved, when we first promised it. So whether it’s on jobs or whether it’s on the growth of our economy, that is what is enabling us to guarantee the essential services that Australians rely on. That’s what we will continue to deliver as a Government.

JOURNALIST: In 2010 you said it was false hope to expect immigrants would go to the regions, what has changed?

PRIME MINISTER: That was in terms of permanent residents, and permanent residents can’t, you have no powers under the migration program to direct permanent migrants to live anywhere in the country. But for temporary residents, those on temporary visas, non-permanent visas, then the powers the Commonwealth have are very, very different. I’m sure, I mean I’ve been in this space a long time so I am sure people will look over what I’ve said in the last 10 years. I’m no stranger to this debate, I’ve been part of it for a very long time and I’m very passionate about it. I want us to see our immigration programme work for the strength of Australia. I want to see an immigration programme in Australia that keeps Australians together. I want to see an immigration programme in Australia that Australians are passionate and confident in.

Why did I stop the boats? I stopped the boats because I was concerned not just about the loss of life we had seen, but because the failure of the previous government to control our borders was crashing confidence in immigration in this country. Now our Government changed that. We secured those borders. We have the immigration plans that I believe Australians can be confident in, because we’re listening carefully to those who are being impacted by strong population growth in cities like Melbourne and Sydney. But we are also hearing the voices of those in Perth, in Adelaide, in Darwin, in Hobart, in Devonport or anywhere else around the country, in Wagga for that matter. I was speaking to the Deputy Prime Minister about this only today. Where they have a plan where they believe they can have additional population in those areas and they see it as good for their local economies. So that is the plan we are advancing.

JOURNALIST: Melissa Price says that 90 or so scientists have drawn a long bow in calling for the end to coal power. What’s your interpretation of the report, do you endorse it’s findings?

PRIME MINISTER: We take all reports seriously and we consider all of them and assess those, as you would be expect us to. That report was delivered not to Australia, it was a global report. It didn't contain any recommendations for any actions by Australia. It was making broader observations and Australia is part of that process. But I tell you what I’m about and what our Government’s about; our Government is about keeping our commitments. We have kept our commitments on Kyoto 1 as Greg as the Environment Minister at the time, knows all about. We will complete our commitments and beat them when it comes to Kyoto 2. We will meet our targets out to 2030 as well. We will meet the commitments that we have made. We have the lowest level of emissions per capita now in more than two decades and that is a good result. We had been working to achieve that and we will continue to do that.

But I tell you the other thing we’re going to do; that is we’re going to do everything we can to get electricity prices down. That is what the Minister for getting electricity down, is focused on and that’s Angus Taylor. The Minister for keeping the commitments that we’ve made on the environment is Melissa Price and that’s the job she’s doing. They’re going to do those jobs and they’re both going  to do those jobs as part of our government. Thank you very much.

JOURNALIST: Is the Government considering nuclear energy as part of - ?

PRIME MINISTER: All I said yesterday was that I’ll consider options if they can stand up from an investment point of view. I said nothing, frankly, much further than that. What I would find surprising is the Labor Party would not consider something that if it stacked up on an investment basis and did lower electricity prices, they apparently wouldn’t consider it. I found that actually more amazing.

All the work that has been done on that issue to date has shown that the investment proposals haven’t stacked up and don’t stack up. So that’s where that issue rests from my perspective. But I’m not going to rule out things based on ideology, I’m not going to rule out things based on advocacy. I’m going to consider things that I think will  ensure that we get electricity prices down when it comes to energy and I will always consider things that will help us practically we meet our environmental targets which is incredibly important to all Australians as well. Thanks very much.

JOURNALIST: Just on the Opera House very quickly, 260,000 people have signed a petition against the display of the race. 

PRIME MINISTER: Yep.

JOURNALIST:  Have you misread the electorate on this?

PRIME MINISTER: Look, I respect everybody having their say on this. I had mine, they’ve had theirs. I'm sure we can all respect each other's views on this and I’m sure the Premier, as they considered all that, will ensure that how they go forward with this will the done sensitively and respectively. I suspect in a few weeks’ time we’ll all look back on this a little differently. But look, it’s a free country, we all get to say our piece, I said mine. Everybody else has said theirs. We respect all those views and I’m sure Gladys Berejiklian will handle the issue with the sensitivity it deserves. Thanks very much.

          Hugh Hewitt and Sen. Tom Cotton go to the fever swamps in Kavanaugh nomination postmortem      Cache   Translate Page      

Melissa Joskow / Media Matters

Conservative pundit Hugh Hewitt and Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) are pushing a conspiracy theory that professor Christine Blasey Ford’s decision to speak out about then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was actually orchestrated by Democratic leaders in the Senate. The version of events proposed by Hewitt and Cotton is at odds with reports on how Ford decided to come forward, and it serves to undercut Ford’s bravery.

Cotton was a guest on the October 9 broadcast of Hewitt’s radio show, The Hugh Hewitt Show. Hewitt prompted the conspiracy theory by asking Cotton if he thought “that this was planned long before it was unveiled? And by that, I mean the leak of Dr. Ford’s letter. I don’t know who did it, but I believe it was part of a campaign that was set up to occur exactly when it did. Do you agree with me?”

Cotton did agree, and he wove an evidence-free conspiracy theory that as early as July, “the Schumer political operation” -- a reference to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) -- and possibly former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara were involved in a plan to leak the contents of a letter Ford had sent to Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA). In the letter, Ford gave an account of Kavanaugh sexually assaulting her when they were both in high school.
 

This conspiratorial timeline is at odds with reality. Ford sent a letter dated July 30 to Feinstein and asked that the California senator keep its contents confidential. The Intercept was the first to report on the letter, writing on September 12 that it “describes an incident involving Kavanaugh and a woman while they were in high school” and that Feinstein was refusing to share its contents with other senators, which “created tension on the committee.” According to Politico, “The reporter behind that [Intercept] story later stated that Feinstein’s staff did not leak the letter.”

Ford came forward publicly in a September 16 Washington Post article. She said later during her testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee that the presence of reporters at her home and workplace made her realize her identity would be revealed in any case, so she decided to speak on the record with a reporter at the Post who she said had gained her trust.

Hewitt has a history of being dishonest while discussing federal judicial nominations, but political talk shows still treat him as a mainstream conservative commentator when they bring him on to talk about the topic. While previously his falsehoods served to provide cover for the GOP to radically change norms around the nomination process, he has now sunk to pushing a conspiracy theory.

Cotton, for his part, has his own history of underhanded behavior on executive branch nominations. In 2014, Cotton placed a hold on President Barack Obama’s nomination of Cassandra Butts to serve as ambassador to the Bahamas. More than two years after her nomination was announced, Butts, who Cotton acknowledged was not a controversial nominee, died of leukemia at age 50, with Cotton’s hold still in place. Before she died, Butts told The New York Times that she had visited Cotton to ask about the hold and he said he knew she was friends with Obama and the hold was a way to inflict personal pain on the president.

    TRANSCRIPT:

    3:12 p.m. EDT

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    QUESTION: I wanted to ask about Jamal Khashoggi.

    MS NAUERT: Mm-hmm.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Okay. Hi, Lesley. Go ahead.

    QUESTION: Hi. Welcome back.

    MS NAUERT: Thank you.

    QUESTION: You must be exhausted, having just arrived.

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

    QUESTION: Just arrived last night. Yes.

    MS NAUERT: Yes.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    QUESTION: Did the Secretary --

    MS NAUERT: Just hold on. Hold on.

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

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

    QUESTION: Okay. So --

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

    Go ahead.

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

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

    Hey, Carol.

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

    MS NAUERT: Sure.

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

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

    QUESTION: Will there be repercussions?

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

    QUESTION: Can you just confirm if it was Pompeo?

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

    MS NAUERT: I can confirm --

    QUESTION: There was a readout --

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

    Go right ahead.

    QUESTION: On the Palestinians.

    MS NAUERT: Yes.

    QUESTION: Two quick --

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

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

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

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

    QUESTION: Let me just --

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

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

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

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

    MS NAUERT: Pardon me?

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

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

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

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

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

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

    QUESTION: Thank you.

    MS NAUERT: Said, go right ahead.

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

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

    QUESTION: And this was --

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

    QUESTION: Right.

    MS NAUERT: That hasn’t changed.

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

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

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

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

    QUESTION: Right. Many times.

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

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

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

    Hi.

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

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

    Laurie, go right ahead.

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

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

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

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

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

    QUESTION: South Asia?

    MS NAUERT: Okay, hi.

    QUESTION: Heather?

    MS NAUERT: How are you?

    QUESTION: Thank you. Welcome from (inaudible).

    MS NAUERT: Thank you.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    QUESTION: Is that happen for denuclearizations?

    MS NAUERT: I’m sorry?

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

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

    QUESTION: Follow up on --

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    MS NAUERT: We start with comparing schedules.

    QUESTION: You don’t have to repeat it.

    MS NAUERT: Okay.

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

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

    QUESTION: But the question is --

    MS NAUERT: Yeah.

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

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

    QUESTION: Okay.

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

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

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

    Nick, go ahead.

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

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

    QUESTION: Heather --

    MS NAUERT: Hi.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    QUESTION: -- with everything inside?

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

    QUESTION: Ambassador Haley --

    MS NAUERT: Hi. Go ahead. Hi.

    QUESTION: India.

    QUESTION: Welcome back.

    MS NAUERT: Thank you.

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

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

    QUESTION: Ambassador Haley --

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

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

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

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

    QUESTION: Ambassador Haley --

    MS NAUERT: Yeah. Yes, go ahead.

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

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

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

    QUESTION: May I just follow up?

    MS NAUERT: Okay. Okay.

    QUESTION: A follow-up?

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

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

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

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

    QUESTION: Welcome back.

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

    QUESTION: Yes.

    MS NAUERT: Did I see you?

    QUESTION: Yeah.

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

    QUESTION: Yeah.

    MS NAUERT: She gets around.

    QUESTION: Okay. Thank you.

    MS NAUERT: Thank you.

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

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

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

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

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

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

    QUESTION: (Off-mike.)

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

    QUESTION: Two weeks ago.

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

    QUESTION: Yeah. The next question, Ambassador Khalilzad.

    MS NAUERT: Yes.

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

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

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

Copyright 2018 NPR. To see more, visit AILSA CHANG, HOST: Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has been in Asia for the last few days. He's spent several hours in Pyongyang with North Korea's leader, Kim Jong Un. They talked about denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula and scheduling a second meeting with President Trump. Pompeo called it a good trip. Then he was in Beijing today, and that visit was notably not as good.

          'If they don't have the barrels, they don't have the barrels': Oil could soar to $100 as Trump shuts Iran out of the market      Cache   Translate Page      

iran oil

  • The State Department has ordered buyers to cut oil imports from Iran by November 4.
  • Against a backdrop of falling output from other key OPEC countries, analysts say barrels could hit $100.
  • Watch oil trade in real time here.

Less than a month before another round of US sanctions against Iran take effect, analysts say hundred-dollar oil could be on the horizon. 

The Trump administration has called on buyers to cut off oil imports from Iran in efforts to pressure the third-largest OPEC producer to change its behavior, a move that could squeeze global supply and pressure prices that are already at four-year highs. Brent, the international benchmark, is currently trading at around $85 a barrel. 

"Higher oil prices seem inevitable and, in our view, $100 per barrel is easily within reach," economists from the Bank of America Merrill Lynch wrote in a recent research note, citing a looming dropoff in Iranian production.

Iran's crude exports have fallen more than expected ahead of the sanctions, even as the Islamic Republic offers Asian customers the cheapest prices in more than a decade versus Saudi grade. According to tanker data compiled by Bloomberg, shipments dropped by just over a quarter million barrels per day in September to the lowest level since 2016. 

In hopes of preventing Tehran from moving forward with its nuclear program, European officials have been working to protect Iranian oil sales from US sanctions. But the Trump administration has portrayed those efforts as implausible, threatening to penalize companies that try to circumvent its policy. 

"The European Union is strong on rhetoric and weak on follow-through," John Bolton, the national security adviser, said in a conference speech last month. "We do not intend to allow our sanctions to be evaded by Europe or anybody else."

President Donald Trump has looked to other oil producers to pick up the slack ahead of midterm elections, but output disruptions in key OPEC countries present limits. Helima Croft, a former CIA analyst who is now head of commodities research at RBC, said plummeting production in Venezuela and Angola leaves little room to balance other supply risks in Libya, Nigeria and Iraq. 

"The countries that can increase are very small in number," she said, adding that there are questions about how long Russia can keep raising output. "It's really only Saudi Arabia at this point." 

Following requests from the White House, Riyadh said earlier this year it could increase output by a "measurable amount." While Saudi Arabia accounts for the lion's share of OPEC production, some analysts are skeptical it has enough spare capacity to fill the gap while maintaining adequate reserves. 

Trump has repeatedly taken aim at OPEC for rising energy prices, even after it came to a rare agreement to ease production restrictions in June. The 15-member group has been coordinating output levels since 2016 in efforts to tackle a global oil glut.

"We protect the countries of the Middle East, they would not be safe for very long without us, and yet they continue to push for higher and higher oil prices!" the president said in a recent tweet. "We will remember. The OPEC monopoly must get prices down now!"

That strategy may have encouraged member countries to increase production in the past, Croft said, but will likely become less effective as the global oil cushion shrinks. Output from the 12 countries bound by the supply-cutting agreement actually fell by 70,000 barrels per day in September, a Reuters survey found. 

"With Trump and these tweets, I think there are diminishing returns," she said. "In terms of going forward, we're looking at an ever-shrinking pool of OPEC barrels. You can yell at them. But if they don't have the barrels, they don't have the barrels."

While the administration has said it may grant sanction waivers to avoid supply shocks, a tactic used in the Obama era, it has still maintained an objective of sending Iranian oil exports to zero. The White House did not respond to an email requesting comment.

At $100 a barrel, the Bank of America economists said oil costs would dampen consumer demand not only for gasoline but also for other goods and services. That level of energy prices is expected to shave two basis points from global growth in 2019. 

"This is not a major impact, but it isn’t trivial either," they said. "Moreover, with oil supplies so tight any further disruption could mean a major spike in oil prices, creating more nonlinear impacts on confidence and growth."

On Monday, the International Monetary Fund lowered its global economic growth forecast for this year and next. The international lender cited in its report "rising trade barriers and a reversal of capital flows to emerging market economies with weaker fundamentals, and higher political risk."

          India’s Pivotal Indo-Pacific Power Build up needs US & Russian Inputs      Cache   Translate Page      

Paper No. 6437 .          Dated 8-Oct-2018

By Dr Subhash Kapila

Contemporary and unfolding geopolitical imperatives dictate that both the United States and Russia need to stand committed to the power-buildup of India as the pivotal Indo Pacific Power. India’s power attributes of a proven responsible stakeholder in Indo Pacific security management could serve security interests of both the United States and Russia.

It is my firm belief that both the United States and Russia at some stage in time compelled by the churning dynamics of Indo Pacific Asia will be forced to reset their policies by both ridding themselves of the old Cold War mindsets and strategic distrust of ‘the other’. A new Cold War has been in the offing since 2001 which is not of Russia’s making but that of its presently close partner China.  Could Russia afford a secondary involvement in a second Cold War?

The evolving geopolitical landscape in the vast Indo Pacific landmass and maritime spaces arising from China’s geopolitical moves laced with threatening contours are generating counter-moves in open manifestations like the United Sates of contributing towards India’s Major Power buildup and Russia’s implicit moves in the same direction by sales of advanced military systems like the state of the art S400 Air Defence Systems and lease of nuclear powered submarines and an undertaking to assist India in the launch of its manned Space Missions.

These geopolitical strategic moves by the United States and Russia are recognition of India’s emergence as an existential counterweight to China though neither the United States, nor Russia nor even India would like to own it up as directed towards containment of China.

Geopolitically, India stands much above China in that it has had no historical conflictual record with either the United States or Russia and therefore well placed to receive strategic trust from the United States and Russia without impinging on their national interests. Nor is India unlike China in its power aspirations seeking strategic equivalence with the United States or Russia.

Unlike China which in different decades opportunistically used its propensity to adopt its “Swing Strategy” oscillated between strategic nexuses with Russia and the United States and played these mighty global Powers one against the other, India has not demonstrated such oscillatory propensities.

Both the United States and Russia engage India in ‘Privileged Special Strategic Partnerships’ on date and optically and otherwise India engages both these global Powers in a compartmentalised manner in a way that there is no conflict of strategic interests or playing one Power against the other.

With such credentials India stands uniquely qualified to expect ‘power buildup’ inputs from both the United States and Russia. India has at least till now not indicated any diffidence that India was averse to receiving Russian power-buildup additives.

Similarly, the United States having moved inexorably towards strategic proximity with India should feel that India was in any way devaluing its privileged strategic relationship with the United States by going in for purchases of advanced Russian military systems. India at this stage of her power ascendancy needs fast-track power additives from all quarters as it prepares after a decade of military neglect by the previous Government in New Delhi to meet the Dual Military Threat of the China-Pakistan Axis.

India therefore in 2018 needs to be viewed by the United States and Russia on a transitory trajectory of an “Ascendant Indo Pacific Power” in the making which dictates imperatives of power buildup assistance from all genuine Major Powers. Of the five Permanent Members of the UN Security Council, with the exception of China all other Major Powers have no reservations in India’s ascendant trajectory.

 India is today a ‘Natural Ally’ of the United States, West and Japan and would have emerged as such if the United States at the height of the Cold War not geopolitically isolated India because of its non-alignment shibboleths and patronised Pakistan to spite India. Resultantly, India had no choice then but to turn towards the Former USSR for its military hardware in the immediate period preceding the Indo Pak War 1965.

Prior to 1965, Indian military inventories were predominantly British and French. USSR for its own geopolitical reasons when its relations with China were adverse emerged as a ready supplier of Russian military hardware and at the turn of the Millennium India’s dependence on Russia was nearly seventy percent.

Russia too cannot forget that in the wake of the USSR disintegration in the decade of the 1990s through statements by its then Foreign Minister had started terming Russia as the ‘Natural Ally of the West.

In 2018, the perspectives of Russia and the United States may stand changed of each other but the perspectives of India on the United States and Russia in 2018, as I would read it, are complementary to India’s buildup of India as a Major Power.

Visibly in 2018 is the reality that India has geopolitically and in terms of privileged military relationships arising from geopolitical convergences moved far down the road in evolving integrations with the United States, Japan and Australia in terms of Indo Pacific Security templates for security and stability.

The United States has strongly underwritten its commitments in terms of India’s build-up as the Pivotal Indo Pacific Power. The manifestations of the same are in the open domain with the more recently concluded military agreements signed at the US-India 2+2 Summit Meet in New Delhi.

Russia too after some South Asian policy aberrations of pivoting towards Pakistan seems  visibly retracing its steps if nothing else but for sales of advanced military equipment like the S400 Air Defence Missiles Systems. Implicit in this decision is that by such sales of S400 systems it is contributing to the ‘degradation’ of China’s and Pakistan’s deterrence capabilities against India.

The final point that needs to be made in this connection is that India’s trajectory of Power ascendancy cannot be arrested. It is inevitable given India’s naturally endowed power attributes. India’s trajectory could be slowed down if power buildup additives are slow in materialisation from external sources. It is for this contingency that India’s present dynamic PM Modi has launched on priority a “Make in India” indigenous defence production drive.

Concluding, it needs to be stressed that with India not having displayed the propensity to adopt “Swing Strategy” of China in its strategic relationships with the United States or Russia, therefore it becomes more incumbent that both the United States and Russia engage themselves in India’s power buildup as the Pivotal Indo Pacific Power. India unlike China is and would continue to be a ‘Benign Power’ as a responsible stakeholder in Indo Pacific security and stability. The United States has moved in that direction unambiguously and Russia needs to be more geopolitically convergent with India.

          The bronze frog : a novel / A. Denis Clift.      Cache   Translate Page      
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.

          Comment on How to Stop Jihad by felix1999      Cache   Translate Page      
" I've said this for a long time, if we banned the indoctrination of children by ideologies such as Communism or religion, then all these belief systems will die off within one generation." Why do you lump all religions together? Have you ever looked at godless countries? You should! If you love what western civilization, brought to you, by Judeo Christian principles, and all it has done, why equate Islam with Judaism and Christianity. They have opposing doctrines. If you are an atheist, that is your business but why punish others for your choice of atheism? Islam has a proven track record of failure. Judeo Christian countries do not have failure till they stat drifting away from it. Keep in mind that we are spiritually wired. It may not be a "religion" per se but it becomes a "religion" to them. Look at the causes that now serve as a "religion" - the pro abortion crowd, radical feminists, environmentalists etc.. Don't you know that even Communists require that the state becomes a god and atheism is formally required, whereas Christians and Jews do not require that. You might want to rethink what you wish for! Sodom and Gomorrah didn't work out too well and if you are intellectually honest the Roman Empire fell because of immorality that that gradually permeated all aspects of their life. It started out with a nuclear family, requiring others to accept their culture, rule of law etc.. I suppose I find it frustrating to see some veering towards history that been shown to be a failure as the new solution. It's not a matter of tweaking it to make it better when the premise is fatally flawed and the outcome will be the same.

Mantar es un duó alemán que se han labrado un hueco en la escena metalera y eso que el estilo que practican es bastante Underground, el Sludge Metal aunque hay que matizar que es un Sludge bastante experimental donde entran en juego otros estilos.
Nada hacía presagiar en el 2014 cuando sacaron su primer álbum que se iban a convertir en una banda con tanta aceptación a nivel internacional pero en su segundo trabajo dieron un paso de gigante y la Nuclear Blast apostó fuerte por ellos y no les salió mal la jugada.
Tercer larga duración para la banda y el álbum que arranca con la intro atmosférica The Knowing, válida para cualquier género musical y ahí está la razón de ser de esta banda que es capaz de congregar a cualquier fan del metal, sea extremo o no. Age of Absurd es un tema con tanta distorsión que roza por momentos el metal industrial, el riff que surca el tema es muy original y adictivo aunque yo me quiero quedar con la violencia del trabajo en la batería.
Seek + Forget es un corte que va de menos a mas con una atmósfera muy simple generada por el riff de la guitarra, se huele la tormenta desde el inicio y con el cambio de ritmo tan sucio se origina, rozando el Death and Roll pero con tanta distorsión que los podemos ubicar dentro de la escena del Sludge.
Taurus quizás no es tan adictivo como los anteriores trabajos pero digamos que es un tema que aunque no llama la atención en un primer momento va ganando con el paso de las escuchas. Midgard Serpent (Seasons of Failure) recupera la atmósfera generada por la intro y le añade otro riff marca de la casa, de estos riffs adictivos que valen para cualquier género musical y que llevan el tema en volandas, no los considero para nada una banda técnica pero han tenido siempre una buena mezcla de estilos musicales.
Dynasty of Nails le sucede un poco lo que al anterior tema, no brilla en esceso pero va ganando poco a poco, es interesante el cambio de ritmo donde aparece la sombra alargada de los Black Sabbath de la primera época solo que ellos le imprimen mucha mas fuerza.
Eternal Return es un corte que va de menos a mas, de nuevo con la suciedad habitual en la distorsión y el caótico ritmo de batería que para mi gusto siempre es lo mas destacado de esta banda. Obey the Obscene es el tema mas atmosférico de todo el trabajo, un medio tiempo al que le falta la brillantez en el trabajo de las guitarras, buenas fórmulas pero no me termina de convencer, los veo en zona de confort y no han sabido evolucionar los ritmos de su anterior trabajo.
Anty Eternia es un tema con buen fuzz cercana al Stoner/ Doom mezclado con el Sludge y con un trabajo de batería que se acerca a los Mastodon de la primera época, ritmos siempre bastante rockeros en los estribillos pero retroalimentadose de la escena del Crust Punk y del Post Metal. The Formation of the Night es un tema que tiene la oscuridad en la atmósfera que les acerca al Black Metal mas experimental, por ejemplo pienso en los polacos Mgla.
Teeth of the Sea suena excesivamente comercial, tiene gancho pero se queda tan solo en eso. The Funeral no añade nada nuevo, demasiado similares todos los temas entre sí. Mantar es una banda que tiene elementos de Bölzer y Mgla pero lo hacen todo bastante mas comercial. Mezclan Crust Punk experimental a lo Amebix, un poco de Post Metal a lo Neurosis y Sludge con Death and Roll, similares a bandas como Tombs o Celeste, buena fórmula pero no mejoran su anterior trabajo.

          Governo dobra tarifa de Angra 3 para viabilizar conclusão da obra      Cache   Translate Page      

BRASÍLIA — O governo encontrou uma saída para retomar a construção da usina nuclear de Angra 3, no Rio de Janeiro. Em reunião nesta terça-feira, o Conselho Nacional de Política Energética (CNPE) decidiu aumentar a tarifa que irá remunerar a energia gerada pela usina, como forma de atrair investidores externos. A tarifa, que hoje está em cerca de R$ 240 por megawatts-hora (MWh), irá dobrar e atingir R$ 480/MWh, considerada o padrão para empreendimentos mundiais desse porte.

Energia - 09.10 A entrada em funcionamento de Angra 3 está programada para ocorrer em janeiro de 2026, com investimentos previstos da ordem de R$ 15,5 bilhões, e necessita da atração de agentes privados para sua finalização. O governo tenta encontrar uma solução para a retomada da construção de Angra 3, parada desde 2015 em meio à deterioração das contas públicas e do andamento da Operação Lava-Jato, que atingiu as empreiteiras responsáveis pelas obras.

Encontrar uma solução rápida que permita a retomada das obras de Angra é fundamental para evitar um “colapso” da Eletronuclear, nas palavras de integrantes do governo — o que poderia comprometer até mesmo a operação de Angra 1 e 2.

O Ministério de Minas e Energia informou ainda que irá propor ao Conselho do Programa de Parcerias de Investimentos — responsável pelas privatizações e concessões do governo — a criação de uma estrutura de governança para o acompanhamento dos principais marcos do projeto para garantir a entrada em operação da usina dentro do prazo previsto.

Desde que a usina foi retomada, em 2009, ela já custou R$ 10 bilhões. A interrupção da obra exigiria R$ 13 bilhões para a desmontagem do que já foi feito. Esse valor refere-se à quitação de empréstimos, o desmonte de toda a estrutura, a destinação final de máquinas e equipamentos já adquiridos, a recuperação ambiental, entre outros gastos. Por isso, o governo avaliou que será mais barato e vantajoso retomar as obras, mesmo sendo necessário gastar mais.

A parada na construção fez a Eletronuclear atingir um patrimônio líquido negativo de mais de R$ 4,3 bilhões. Sem dinheiro em caixa e no Orçamento do governo, a empresa iniciou uma busca por parceiros internacionais para retomar as obras. Essa nova companhia deve injetar alguns bilhões no empreendimento — o valor final ainda não foi definido —, mas não pode se tornar controladora da usina. A Constituição determina que apenas o governo pode controlar usinas nucleares.

Busca por parceiro

Executivos da Eletrobras alegam que a tarifa em vigor hoje inviabiliza a geração de caixa da empresa e impede a atração de parceiros internacionais. Por isso, o reajuste da tarifa é defendido pela estatal. Segundo a Eletronuclear, progresso físico global de Angra 3, no momento, é de 58%.

A forma como será feita a entrada do investidor privado ainda precisa ser definida. A estatal avalia ceder uma participação na Eletronuclear a um grupo estrangeiro, que ficará responsável por fazer aportes na companhia e finalizar o empreendimento. Para isso, seria necessário lançar uma concorrência internacional para atração de sócios. Outra alternativa em estudo seria a companhia estrangeira entrar como sócia especificamente em Angra 3, aportando os recursos necessários para a conclusão da usina.

A Eletrobras e a Eletronuclear já fecharam alguns memorandos de entendimento junto a empresas que poderiam colaborar com a retomada e conclusão das obras de Angra 3, além do desenvolvimento de novas usinas nucleares no Brasil. Entre esses investidores estão a francesa EDF e a chinesa CNNC.

Apesar da alta na tarifa, a viabilização de Angra 3 poderia ser benéfica aos consumidores de energia, ao substituir usinas termelétricas de custo operacional bem mais caro que são atualmente despachadas para atender a demanda, defendem integrantes da equipe econômica. Segundo essa visão, a entrada de Angra deslocaria energia gerada por térmicas caras, que custam mais de R$ 700 reais por megawatt-hora. Isso poderia reduzir custos para os consumidores

“Angra 3 contribui para o sistema elétrico nacional por estar localizada no principal centro de carga (região onde há maior consumo de energia no país), com menores custos de transmissão, impactando positivamente o consumidor brasileiro”, informou, em nota, o Ministério de Minas e Energia.

Projeto é do governo militar

Para o governo, a geração de energia de Angra 3 pode proporcionar maior segurança energética e elétrica ao sistema elétrico brasileiro. Sua operação corresponderá a um acréscimo de 7,2% da energia armazenável máxima da região Sudeste/Centro-Oeste e reduzir o acionamento de usinas térmicas com maior custo, sustenta a pasta.

Angra 3 é um projeto do governo militar, e começou a ser construída em1984. As obras prosseguiram até 1986, quando foram paralisadas devido a dificuldades políticas e econômicas. O projeto ficou engavetado por 25 anos, até ser retomado em 2009 como um dos destaques do Programa de Aceleração do Crescimento (PAC).

O ex-presidente Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva prometia colocar a usina para funcionar em 2014. Investigações realizadas pela Polícia Federal no âmbito da Operação Lava-Jato descobriram desvios de recursos na obra que resultaram na prisão de executivos da Eletronuclear.

           Comment on The Rover Boys in the Air by Mark Pontin       Cache   Translate Page      
"The fact that Reagan, Heinlein, and Asimov devoured many of the same books only tells me that this was what a lot of kids were reading in the twenties and thirties—although perhaps only the exceptionally imaginative would try to live their lives as an extension of those stories... " Yet the exceptionally imaginative shaped the culture. " ...if we’re more inclined to emphasize the science fiction side ... it’s because this is the only genre that dares to make such grandiose claims for itself....'' There's more to it than that. I interviewed Gene Kranz, NASA Flight Director during the Gemini and Apollo programs, around 2000. Though I didn't elicit it, at one point Kranz became quite voluble about the influences that shaped him during his youth, stressing not only the importance of the SF pulps to his world-view but also that of the 'Air Ace'-type pulps and popular aviation magazines. (As forex - http://www.vintagepulps.com/store/c61/G-8_and_his_Battle_Aces.html) In other words, SF was part of a popular cultural continuum in which the Wright Brothers' first powered flights were only a couple of decades in the past. By the mid-1940s, the German V2 rockets and the atomic bomb -- whose real-world physics were initially conceived of by Leo Szilard in 1933, following his reading in 1932 of H.G. Wells's fictional account of atomic bombs in THE WORLD SET FREE (1914) -- were accomplished facts. https://library.ucsd.edu/dc/object/bb58377715/_1.pdf By the 1950s, you get figures like John von Neumann talking about 'this Buck Rogers universe we are entering' (see Richard Rhodes's DARK SUN) and grim realists like USAF SAC commander General Curtis LeMay demanding a nuclear-powered bomber that would stay airborne for 6-9 months at a time so he could maintain parity with the US Navy and Admiral Hyman Rickover's nuclear submarines. As matters turned out, the 1950s were arguably the most Faustian decade in history and things would tail off after Apollo. But you can see why, based on the exponential curve of development from the Wright Bros to Sputnik in a half-century, a lot of intelligent people expected Kubrick and Clarke's 2001, not bin Laden's.

          Wang y Pompeo abordan sus relaciones “críticas” y abren la puerta al diálogo      Cache   Translate Page      


PEKÍN. El ministro de Asuntos Exteriores de China, Wang Yi, y el secretario de Estado de EEUU, Mike Pompeo, reconocieron este lunes que las relaciones bilaterales se encuentran en una etapa “crítica” debido a la guerra comercial y las tensiones por Taiwán, pero se mostraron dispuestos a fortalecer la comunicación.
Ambos políticos se reunieron hoy en Pekín dentro de la gira asiática emprendida por Pompeo y, pese a que la desnuclearización de Corea del Norte era un tema central de la agenda, otros asuntos que enfrentan a ambas potencias fueron abordadas durante el encuentro.
Wang reconoció que las relaciones bilaterales entre ambas potencias se encuentran en una “etapa crítica” por sus fricciones comerciales, sus diferencias con Taiwán o en el Mar del Sur de China, pero se mostró convencido de que este encuentro sea una oportunidad para rebajar las crecientes tensiones.
Según un comunicado del Ministerio chino de Asuntos Exteriores divulgado tras el encuentro, Wang exigió a la parte estadounidense que detenga “sus prácticas erróneas” y “acusaciones injustificadas contra China” que dañan sus intereses.
En concreto, sobre sus diferencias en materia arancelaria, Wang recordó que la guerra comercial no es la salida al problema y volvió a mostrar la disposición de su Gobierno a resolver esta disputa a través de las negociaciones, aunque hasta el momento todas han fracasado.
Según el comunicado, Pompeo también reconoció estas diferencias “obvias” y recalcó que ambas partes “deben fortalecer la comunicación, mejorar la confianza y fortalecer la cooperación”.
Wang también abordó con su homólogo estadounidense las tensiones por Taiwán y pidió que EEUU acabe con los lazos militares, detenga la venta de armas a la isla y respete el “principio de una sola China”, que Pekín obliga a reconocer a todo Estado como condición para el establecimiento de lazos bilaterales oficiales y que implica la ruptura de lazos intergubernamentales con Taiwán.
“EEUU se adhiere al principio de Una Sola China y esperamos mantener la comunicación y la coordinación con China en asuntos internacionales y regionales”, afirmó el responsable estadounidense.
La gira asiática de Pompeo, con la que ha visitado Tokio, Pionyang y Seúl, tenía como objetivo concretar una segunda reunión entre el presidente estadounidense, Donald Trump, y el líder norcoreano, Kim Jong-un, tras la celebrada en junio en Singapur.
Pompeo informó a Wang de la reunión mantenida con Kim, en la que se lograron avances en materia de desarme y en la que se habló de celebrar “lo antes posible” ese segundo encuentro.
El secretario de Estado de EEUU agradeció el papel que China ha desempeñado en los últimos meses para promover el diálogo y la desnuclearización de la península coreana.
Esa cuestión también ha sido punto de desencuentro entre EEUU y China recientemente, después de que Trump acusara a Xi de entorpecer el diálogo entre Pionyang y Washington -estancado por las diferencias sobre cómo llevar a cabo el proceso de desnuclearización- como represalia a la guerra comercial.
En Pekín, Pompeo también se reunió con el consejero de Estado, Yang Jiechi, que volvió a insistir en la necesidad de que EEUU corrija “sus errores” tras la última serie de declaraciones y acciones negativas del Gobierno de Trump, a lo que él aseguró que está dispuesto a trabajar para lograr “soluciones constructivas”.
Las fuertes tensiones bilaterales han sido las protagonistas de la corta estancia de Pompeo en Pekín, donde ha sido significativo que no se haya reunido con el presidente chino, Xi Jinping, tal y como hizo con los líderes de Japón y las dos Coreas durante su gira.
No ha trascendido a los medios si durante la visita se abordaron las graves acusaciones vertidas por Trump contra China, a la que ha señalado públicamente por presuntamente interferir en las elecciones legislativas del próximo mes en EEUU para restarle apoyos

That’s why the demand curve doesn’t peak sharply at noon or 1pm, but instead rather later. It wouldn’t make sense to rely only on direct wind power, and nobody is suggesting such a thing. But, that doesn’t mean that fossil fuels are needed in the medium and long term: wind, solar, geothermal, nuclear etc will do just fine.
          The Cold War Gets 'Hot' At Jewish Women's Theatre (JWT)      Cache   Translate Page      

Jewish Women's Theatre (JWT) and the Wende Museum in Culver City have teamed up to create a festive and educational evening that includes opportunities to survey the Museum's current exhibits and to watch a performance of JWT's critically acclaimed show Past & Present: Russian Jewish American Stories.

The event will be held Sunday, November 11 and will begin with a private Museum viewing and reception at 5 p.m., followed by a performance and Q&A at 6 p.m. The Wende is located at 10808 Culver Boulevard in Culver City, 90230. Tickets are $50. For more information, visit: www.jewishwomenstheatre.org.

The Wende, which is German for "turning point" or change, was established to collect and preserve artwork, artifacts and personal histories from Cold War-era Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union relating to the period leading up to and following the fall of the Berlin Wall.

"The Wende is a beautiful venue to reprise one of our most popular shows and to give a new audience an opportunity to hear stories of Russian-speaking American Jews in a setting that will surely bring back memories to many of our guests and enlighten others," said Ronda Spinak, JWT's artistic director.

Past & Present: Russian Jewish American Stories will feature professional actors retelling personal narratives of Jews born in the former Soviet Union, and now living in America. There are stories of confusion, loss, anti-Semitism, and the difference in opportunities for Jews in each country.

"In the former Soviet Union, Jews were distinctly third-class citizens, and denied jobs, education and other advantages afforded Soviet citizens," added Spinak. "The stories in Past & Present speak of the bravery needed to live there and the courage needed to leave."

One man wrote, "I am angry that they lied to me all my life; that they denied to me the right to be a first-class citizen. I was a patriot. I was passionate. I was a Communist. And yet, they never gave me a chance."

"In many ways, the term 'Russian Jew' all by itself is an oxymoron. How can you be a Jew in a country that has outlawed religion?" asks Spinak. "The quest to understand Judaism when there was no such thing in their world, is a recurrent theme in our show and on the minds and in the hearts of many Former Soviet Union Jews."

Another story tells of the arrest of two young Jewish girls who got hungry and picked some peaches to eat while on a hike in the Ukraine. Unfortunately, their innocent theft was witnessed by a police officer and they feared for their lives in what they had been told was a "Jew-eating" country. But they were allowed to go free and the reason why will delight audiences.

Another story compares childrearing practices between "tough Russia and coddling America." Another woman tells how she was headed for medical school when she met a man who had received permission to emigrate to America. If she went with him, her road to her career dream would take lengthy and unexpected turns.

Perhaps the most intriguing story, written by Nadia Kalman, tells of a man who woke up one morning to find that his nose was missing. His quest to find it is a humorous metaphor for the losses one feels when being a stranger in a new country.

In addition to seeing Past & Present: Russian Jewish American Stories, guests will get to view two new exhibits at the Wende museum. The first is titled "War of Nerves: Psychological Landscapes of The Cold War." Dr. Joes Segal, Chief Curator at the Wende explains, "Our new exhibit examines different responses to the psychological landscapes in the East and the West. It examines different responses to the then frightening new prospect of nuclear war."

A second exhibit, "Red Shoes: Love, Politics, and Dance during the Cold War," focuses on the culture that flourished despite political differences.

"During the 50's and 60's, each side invested considerably in cinema, theatre, music, dance and the visual arts, and in public relations promoting creative works. All these efforts were designed to show their side's cultural supremacy," Segal explains.

JWT's special Wende Museum performance and Museum-viewing event will be held Sunday, November 11 and will begin with a private opportunity to tour the Museum and a reception at 5 p.m., followed by a performance and Q&A at 6 p.m. The Wende is located at 10808 Culver Boulevard in Culver City 90230. Tickets are $50. For more information, visit: www.jewishwomenstheatre.org

          DOE Statement on the Continued Rise in Fuel Costs      Cache   Translate Page      

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Hindi po kayo nag-iisa. The Department of Energy (DOE) and your entire energy family are united in taking steps to ease the effects of rising prices, particularly of oil and other petroleum products.

The rise in petroleum prices is due to the current global situation where international political and economic factors are at play:

• US exit from the Iran nuclear deal was accompanied by its re-imposition of economic sanctions on Iran, including those related to oil;

• Political and economic instability in Venezuela, which has the world’s largest proven oil reserves and is considered one of the largest oil exporters in the West; and
• A lack of clear commitment from oil producing countries for an actual production increase to replace expected supply constraints.

Global oil prices also tend to go up in the winter months (October-March), as demand for heating is at its highest.

Magtulungan po tayo. Even before the onset of the spike in world petroleum prices, the energy family has been relentless in working out ways to help our most vulnerable sectors such as transport groups. Public utility vehicles are able to avail of fuel discounts through the continued expanding partnership of the DOE with various oil companies.

Likewise, we have asked the Philippine National Oil Company – Exploration Corporation, one of our attached agencies, to look into importing low-cost diesel to augment supply and offer a more affordable fuel option to our public transportation sector.

We are also part of the inter-agency Pantawid Pasada program being led by the Department of Transportation, where fuel subsidy cards are being distributed to qualified franchise holders of public utility jeepneys.

Your full cooperation is needed in facing the challenges ahead.  Now more than ever, we are appealing for each and every one of us to adopt simple yet far-reaching changes in the energy choices we make, with efficiency at its core. 
Using fuel wisely is one easy way for us to immediately cope with current fuel costs. We have launched a strengthened information campaign on fuel saving tips. These helpful suggestions and strategies on maximizing fuel efficiency would save us time, money and help our environment. For example, planning one errand day for the entire family is a creative way, which allows us to spend more time with our loved ones, while decreasing the number of trips we need to make.

Pagbabagong isinasabuhay. A mindset on energy efficiency is key to living an energy efficient lifestyle. Helping bring down the overall energy demand of our country is hinged upon our energy habits. We already have the energy ability. Let us hone it by being smart about our energy choices may it be on fuel or power. Simple tasks such as turning off appliances that are not in use become second nature when done repeatedly. In addition, switching to LED lighting and inverter technology significantly reduces our power consumption, which means lower electricity bills.

We launched E-Power Mo in 2017 initially as a campaign to empower consumers with crucial information that would help them make informed energy decisions. Today, E-Power Mo has transformed into a movement of Filipinos becoming more adept at energy-related issues and adopting an energy efficient way of life.

We are encouraging everyone to follow us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/doe.gov.phand visit our official website https://www.doe.gov.ph/ to learn more about energy efficiency and fuel savings tips.

Patuloy na paninilbihan. Together with our country’s economic management team, the DOE and your entire energy family remain unyielding in finding ways to manage the situation at hand.  We will not rest from pushing vital industry reforms, including the crafting of policies that promote the exploration and development of our indigenous energy resources, the expansion of our renewable energy capabilities, uphold the integrity of safety and resiliency standards, and bring power to unserved and underserved areas in the Philippines.

Lower Price of Fukushima Rice Shifts Demand to Commercial Sector

As individual consumers turned away from the once-prized Fukushima rice after the 2011 nuclear disaster, the drop in price brought an uptake in purchasing from the commercial sector.

Sales of rice grown in Fukushima Prefecture have been shifting from individual toward commercial users. Prior to the 2011 nuclear disaster, around 75% of all rice was shipped to wholesalers or retailers in 2008, but by 2015 that proportion had fallen to 37.4%. Meanwhile, the supply of Fukushima-grown rice for pre-cooked meals and other prepared items eaten at home has risen from almost nothing prior to the disaster to now account for 37% of all shipments.

Agriculture in Fukushima suffered a heavy blow immediately after the disaster that struck the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant in 2011, including the halting of shipments of agricultural products with radiation levels exceeding Japan’s regulatory limits. A 2017 survey by the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, and Fisheries found that Fukushima rice pulled from retailers’ shelves after the disaster has not returned as a regularly sold item, even though almost no rice grown since 2012 has exceeded the radiation limits.

S. Korean activists demand Japan not dump Fukushima's radioactive water into the sea

2018/10/08 15:07

SEOUL, Oct. 8 (Yonhap) -- South Korean environmental groups on Monday urged Japan to reverse its recent decision to release radioactive water that has accumulated in the Fukushima nuclear plant into the sea after treatment.

Korea Radioactive Watch, the Korean Federation For Environmental Movement and other civic groups held a joint news conference in Gwanghwamun Square in downtown Seoul, denouncing the decision by the Japanese government and Tokyo Electric Power Co. to discharge Fukushima's contaminated water into the ocean as "unacceptable."

   "A release of Fukushima's radioactive, contaminated water will threaten the safety of the waters of South Korea and other neighboring nations that share the Pacific Ocean, as well as the waters in the vicinity of Fukushima," the activist groups said.

South Korean environmental activists hold a rally in front of the Japanese Embassy in Seoul on Oct 8 2018 to protest against Japans decision to release the Fukushima nuclear plants radioactive contaminated water into the sea Yonhap

          VENOM INC. Frontman On Latest ABADDON Split: 'It Seems Discontentment Has Set In'      Cache   Translate Page      
VENOM INC. frontman Tony "Demolition Man" Dolan says that he doesn't know if drummer Anthony "Abaddon" Bray will ever return to the band. Earlier this year, VENOM INC. revealed that it was recruiting Jeramie Kling of the Tampa-based melodic death metal band THE ABSENCE to fill in for Bray on a European tour while Abaddon stayed home to spend time with his newborn daughter. VENOM INC. has since completed several tours with Kling without making any announcements about Bray's possible return to the group. Asked by "Rock Talk With Mitch Lafon" whether Kling is merely filling in for Abaddon or if Jeramie is the permanent new drummer for VENOM INC., Dolan said (hear audio below): "Well, the whole idea of putting this together — the VENOM INC. thing — was for the fans and to play the legacy. There was never an intention to make an album or to go down that route; it was purely to play live shows and reach the places that Cronos or VENOM had never been to before, play clubs as well as anything else that came along — not discriminating between sizes of venues, but get to the fans, get to the proximity of the fans. And I wanted to play the whole catalog — all the songs nobody had ever heard before, B-sides, you name it. That was really, really good, but I think once we then got offered to do an album and then we signed with Nuclear Blast, things got a bit more legitimate, more real. And, of course, when reality hits in that way, it becomes about money and ego and all of that. And I guess, naïvely, because I just wanna play rock and roll and I just wanna be in there playing all the time — I'm not too worried about the pay deals and the dealings and all of that. Although I do all the business management for us, it's not my focus — my focus is the fans and the music; that's it. That's why I'm there. I'm not there for the five-star hotels and whether I've got a jacuzzi; I'm there to play shows every night and enjoy myself and have the fans enjoy themselves. So the politics started to outweight the product and I pulled back from that. And there was a lot of discontentment." He continued: "Abaddon, then, was having a baby, wanted to take a month out. We had a European tour to fulfill; I guess he wanted to cancel it and put it further back into the year. The label was pressuring us because we had taken over six months before we had done the European tour to support the album. The management said, 'We can't push it back, because we're gonna go to America.' So the logistics meant we had to do it. He agreed that we could use a [substitute]. And Mr. Kling had just done our U.S. tour as our soundman, but also he's a drummer and a very good one, for THE ABSENCE, and he knew the material. So I thought, 'Well, if we're gonna use a [fill-in] while Abaddon sits out for the month of March, then we should get Jeramie.' We did have offers from drummers, we could have gotten somebody else, but I thought we'd take Jeramie. He's not as much of a platform personality as some other drummers, like Mr. [Nicholas] Barker or Rik Charron, ex-EXCITER, or people like that. I thought he's a technician, he was working with us, he's got his own band, he's launching his own album, so people will know automatically he's only there to fill in until Abaddon comes back. However, that month that we were waiting for Abaddon to come back, things went all a bit strange, let's say, and all a bit wonky. And then I still assumed he would be coming back after March, [but] he didn't. We then had to fulfull some other shows, he still wasn't back, and it seems discontentment has set in and he wants to do his own thing now. So, I don't know." Dolan added: "In the future, who knows what's gonna happen? But I wanted to continue playing. We have a good album; we wanted to keep promoting it. We had show offers — so many things have been coming up. And I thought, well, I can't stop the car while we're on the road. We wanna get the new album done, we wanna keep playing shows. If [Abaddon] runs alongside and he comes back on, then that's what he does. If he doesn't, then we'll continue with Jeramie until such times as we don't. But the advantage of Jeramie, I think, is he knows the material, he knows how it should sound, he knows how it should be played. His style is very different to what we're doing in VENOM, but he's adapted himself. He's very well studied — he studied all the Abaddon tapes, all of the music, all the original recordings — and he plays to a click track from the original recordings, so he plays them as they're meant to sound." VENOM INC.'s debut album, "Avé", was released in August 2017 via Nuclear Blast. Joining Bray in the recording lineup for the disc and all of the band's initial tours was fellow original VENOM member Jeff "Mantas" Dunn on guitar and Dolan on bass and vocals. Dunn, Bray and Dolan released three albums as VENOM between 1989 and 1992 — "Prime Evil" (1989), "Temples Of Ice" (1991) and "The Waste Lands" (1992). VENOM INC. is not to be confused with the Conrad "Cronos" Lant-fronted version of VENOM, which is continuing to tour and make albums under the VENOM moniker. Joining Cronos in that group are Rage (a.k.a. Stuart Dixon) on guitar and Danté (a.k.a. Danny Needham) on drums. Photo credit: Stephanie Cabral

          Andrew Ross Sorkin Says China May Stop Manipulating Its Currency to Retaliate Against Trump's Tariffs      Cache   Translate Page      

The story is that in a desperate move, since it doesn't have more imports to tax, China could dump $1 trillion in U.S. treasuries to screw the United States. No part of this makes any sense.

China bought up massive amounts of U.S. treasury bonds and other foreign assets to keep down the value of its currency against the dollar. This helped its competitive position, allowing it to continue to run a large trade surplus, a major anomaly for a fast-growing country. These purchases of treasury bonds were actually the "currency manipulation" that Trump constantly complained about during his campaign.

There is no doubt that a massive dumping of these bonds would create upheaval in financial markets, but the Fed would have little problem buying them up. Also, other central banks would rush to buy them as well, since they would not want to see the euro, pound, and yen suddenly jump by 20 percent against the dollar.

This would have the same impact on their relative competitiveness as if Trump imposed tariffs of 20 percent and also subsidized all U.S. exports by 20 percent. It would be very bizarre if China's big weapon in against Trump was to give him exactly what he had demanded for a year and a half prior to the election. (Currency seems to have disappeared from Trump's agenda since the election.)

China has very powerful weapons it can still use in the trade war. For example, it could shut U.S. firms out of its market. This would be a huge hit since its economy is already 25 percent larger than the U.S. economy on a purchasing power parity basis and 70 percent as large on an exchange rate basis. (Dumping a trillion dollars of treasury bonds would quickly close much of this gap.)

It could also mass produce items in clear violation of U.S. copyrights and patents. Imagine hundreds of millions of computers using Windows and other Microsoft software and Bill Gates not getting a penny. Imagine Pfizer not getting a penny for the drugs on which it holds patent rights.

These are huge weapons that China still has at its disposal. While NYT business columnists may lack the imagination to understand this fact, the leadership in China is probably not as ill-informed.

          Trump: Next Summit With N. Korea's Kim to Be After Nov. US Elections      Cache   Translate Page      
U.S. President Donald Trump said on Tuesday his second summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un would be held after U.S. congressional elections on Nov. 6. Speaking to reporters as he flew to Iowa for a political rally, Trump said: "It'll be after the midterms. I just can't leave now." Earlier on Tuesday, Trump told reporters that plans were being made for his second summit with Kim and that he thought "incredible" progress had been made in U.S. talks with the long-isolated North Asian country. He said Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had very good talks with Kim over the weekend and that three or four locations were being considered. Pompeo echoed Trump's comments when he spoke briefly to reporters during a Tuesday afternoon visit to the White House. "While there's still a long way to go and much work to do, we can now see a path where we will achieve (our) ultimate goal, which is the full and final verified denuclearization of North Korea," he said. Trump and Kim held a historic first summit in Singapore on June 12 at which Kim pledged to work toward denuclearization of the Korean peninsula. His actions have fallen short, however, of Washington's demands for a complete inventory of its weapons and facilities and irreversible steps to give up its nuclear arsenal, which could threaten the United States. 'No Rockets Flying' Still, Trump was upbeat on progress so far. "You got no rockets flying, you have no missiles flying, you have no nuclear testing," Trump said in the Oval  Office. "We've made incredible progress - beyond incredible. "But I have agreed to meet," he said. "We have a very good relationship with Chairman Kim. I like him, he likes me, the relationship is good." Pompeo said on Monday the two sides were "pretty close" to agreeing on details for a second summit. He added that Kim had said he was ready to allow international inspectors into North Korea's Punggye-ri nuclear testing site and the Sohae missile engine test facility as soon as the United States and North Korea agreed on logistics. But experts questioned what Pompeo achieved on Sunday on his fourth visit to Pyongyang this year. They said the North Korean leader appeared simply to be repackaging and dragging out past pledges. Trump noted that the United States had not lifted the "very big sanctions" it has imposed on Pyongyang. "I'd love to remove them, but we have to get something for doing it," Trump said. North Korea is very interested in reaching some sort of agreement on denuclearization so that it can grow economically with the benefit of the foreign investment closed to it now, Trump said. The U.N. World Food Program said on Tuesday that the supply of food remained precarious in North Korea, where one in five children is stunted by malnutrition. More than 10 million North Koreans, nearly 40 percent of the population, are undernourished and need humanitarian aid, it said. "I will tell you they're calling, wanting to go there and wanting to invest," Trump said. "At some point, when Chairman Kim makes that decision, I think he's going to unleash something that's going to be spectacular, really spectacular. And I think he knows it and I think that's one of the reasons that we're having very successful conversations."

          CIA Democrats Call for Aggression Against Russia, Run Pro-War Campaigns in 2018 Congressional Races      Cache   Translate Page      

The 30 national-security candidates include six actual CIA, FBI or military intelligence agents, six State Department or other civilian national security officials, 11 combat veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan, all but one an officer, and seven other military veterans, including pilots, naval officers and military prosecutors (JAGs).

The range of views expressed by these 30 candidates is quite limited. With only one exception, Jared Golden, running in the First District of Maine, the military-intelligence Democrats do not draw any negative conclusions from their experience in leading, planning or fighting in the wars of the past 25 years, including two wars against Iraq, the invasion of Afghanistan, and other military engagements in the Persian Gulf and North and East Africa.

Golden, who is also the only rank-and-file combat veteran—as opposed to an officer—and the only one who admits to having suffered from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, criticizes congressional rubber-stamping of the wars of the past 20 years. “Over the past decade and a half, America has spent trillions on the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, and on other conflicts across the globe,” his campaign website declares. “War should be a last resort, and only undertaken when the security interests of America are clearly present, and the risks and costs can be appropriately justified to the American people.”

These sentiments hardly qualify as antiwar, but they sound positively radical compared to the materials posted on the websites of many of the other military-intelligence candidates. In some ways, Golden is the exception that proves the rule. What used to be the standard rhetoric of Democratic Party candidates when running against the administration of George W. Bush has been entirely scrapped in the course of the Obama administration, the first in American history to have been engaged in a major military conflict for every day of its eight years.

All the other national-security candidates accept as a basic premise that the United States must maintain its dominant world position. The most detailed foreign policy doctrine appears on the website of Amy McGrath, who is now favored to win her contest against incumbent Republican incumbent Andy Barr in the Sixth Congressional District of Kentucky.

McGrath follows closely the line of the Obama administration and the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign, supporting the Iran nuclear deal that Trump tore up, embracing Israel, warning of North Korea’s development of nuclear weapons, and declaring it “critical that the US work with our allies and partners in the region to counter China’s advances” in the South China Sea and elsewhere in Asia.

But Russia is clearly the main target of US national-security efforts, in her view. She writes, “Our Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff has testified that Russia is the greatest threat to American security. Russia poses an existential threat to the United States due to its nuclear weapons and its behavior in the past several years has been disturbing. Russia’s aggression in Georgia, Crimea, Ukraine, and Syria has been alarming. It’s becoming more assertive in the Arctic, likely the most important geostrategic zone of competition in the coming decades. The US should consider providing defensive arms to Ukraine and exerting more pressure on Moscow using economic sanctions.”

She concludes by calling for an investigation modeled on the 9/11 Commission into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 elections.

Five other national-security candidates focus on specific warnings about the danger of Russia and China, thus aligning themselves with the new national security orientation set in the most recent Pentagon strategy document, which declares that the principal US national security challenge is no longer the “war on terror,” but the prospect of great power conflicts, above all with Russia and China.

Jessica Morse, a former State Department and AID official in Iraq, running in the Fourth District of California, blasts the Trump administration for “giving away global leadership to powers like China and Russia. Our security and our economy will both suffer if those countries are left to re-write the international rules.”

Former FBI agent Christopher Hunter, running in the 12th District of Florida, declares, “Russia is a clear and present danger to the United States. We emerged victorious over the Soviet Union in the Cold War. We must resolve anew to secure an uncompromising victory over Russia and its tyrannical regime.”

Elissa Slotkin, the former CIA agent and Pentagon official running in Michigan’s Eighth Congressional District, cites her 14 years of experience “working on some of our country’s most critical national security matters, including U.S.-Russia relations, the counter-ISIS campaign, and the U.S. relationship with NATO.” She argues that “the United States must make investments in its military, intelligence, and diplomatic power” in order to maintain “a unique and vital role in the world.”

Max Rose, a combat commander in Afghanistan now running in New York’s 11th Congressional District (Staten Island and Brooklyn), calls for “recognizing Russia as a hostile foreign power and holding the Kremlin accountable for its attempts to undermine the sovereignty and democratic values of other nations.” Rose is still in the military reserves, and took two weeks off from his campaign in August to participate in small-unit drills.

Joseph Kopser, running in the 21st District of Texas, is another anti-Russian firebrand, writing on his website, “As a retired Army Ranger, I know first hand the importance of standing strong with your allies. Given Russia’s march toward a totalitarian state showing aggression around the region, as well as their extensive cyber and information warfare campaign directed at the U.S., England, and others, our Article 5 [NATO] commitment to our European allies and partners is more important than ever.” He concludes, “Since the mid-twentieth century, the United States has been a principal world leader—a standard that should never be changed.”

Four national-security candidates add North Korea and Iran to China and Russia as specific targets of American military and diplomatic attack.

          THRESHOLD - starten morgen ihre Europatour!      Cache   Translate Page      
Das britische Progressive Metal-Quintett THRESHOLD steht kurz davor, seine elf Konzerte umfassende Europatour, auf der es u.a. sein kolossales Konzept-Doppelalbum »Legends Of The Shires« in voller Länge darbieten wird, morgen in Aachen zu beginnen. Die griechischen Prog Power Metaller THE SILENT WEDDING sowie die aus der Schweiz stammenden Hardrocker MAXXWELL werden die Abende jeweils eröffnen. Weitere Details gibt es unten. „Die gesamte Band ist heiß auf den Tourstart, endlich spielen wir unser komplettes »Legends Of The Shires«-Album. Es bestand eigentlich schon seit geraumer Zeit die Idee, die Platte am Stück darzubieten. Aber natürlich haben wir auch ein paar alte Tracks in die Setlist eingebaut“, kommentiert Gitarrist Karl Groom. Keyboarder Richard West ergänzt: „Unser aktuelles Werk komplett zu spielen, wird wirklich etwas ganz Besonderes. Ich kann mich noch gut daran erinnern, dass viele Fans diesen Wunsch geäußert haben, weshalb wir uns umso mehr freuen, diesen erfüllen zu können. Die Songs gehen quasi fließend ineinander über, was den Shows eine enorme Energie verleihen wird!“ »Legends Of The Shires« ist am 08. September 2017 via Nuclear Blast erschienen und stellt das bis dato erfolgreichste Werk der Bandgeschichte (u.a. #13 Deutschland, #14 Schweiz, #31 Österreich) dar. Die Platte wurde Ende 2017 von einer euphorischen zweiwöchigen Headlinetour durch Europa begleitet, auf der sämtliche Shows ausverkauft waren.

           Comment on Exxon Mobil’s insane sophistry arguing against action on climate change by Hazelwood.       Cache   Translate Page      
"Exxon Puts $1 Million Into Quest for Carbon Tax and Rebate : Carbon tax would replace an array of environmental regulations." (Bloomberg 10/9/18) https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-10-09/exxon-puts-1-million-into-quest-for-carbon-tax-and-rebate-plan With Exxon’s donation, the biggest U.S. oil company is joining the nation’s largest nuclear power generator and major renewable energy boosters in bankrolling the political campaign to put a tax on emissions, with revenue the levy raises redistributed to U.S. households. Exxon’s $1 million pledge represents the amount it generated about every two minutes last year, based on revenue data compiled by Bloomberg. But the commitment appears to stand out from the company’s other political spending. For instance, Exxon reported $11.4 million in total lobbying expenses in 2017. And it disclosed giving just $510,000 to state-level candidates, state committees and national political organizations representing governors and state attorneys general last year.

          La radioterapia contra el cáncer más avanzada llega a España      Cache   Translate Page      

El próximo año acabará el peregrinaje de enfermos oncológicos españoles por Alemania, Suiza o República Checa en busca de un tratamiento de protones, la radioterapia más precisa contra el cáncer. Esta tecnología se hizo popular en 2014 por el caso del niño Ashya King, afectado por un tumor cerebral, al que sus padres sacaron sin permiso del Reino Unido para proporcionarle una terapia menos agresiva que la que recibía en Londres.

Desde entonces la evidencia científica de la protonterapia no ha hecho más que crecer. Menos lesiva y eficiente que la radioterapia convencional, está especialmente pensada para tratar enfermos infantiles y zonas muy sensibles porque la radiación de protones actúa con total precisión en el tumor, sin dañar el tejido sano. En el mundo hay 24 unidades, ninguna de ellas está en España, aunque el vacío durará poco tiempo. Dos centros sanitarios privados -Quirón Salud y Clínica de la Universidad de Navarra- están construyendo en Madrid las instalaciones que albergarán los primeros equipos de terapia de protones del país.

La previsión es que el primer paciente se pueda tratar durante el último trimestre del próximo año en un edificio que el grupo Quirónsalud construye en la localidad madrileña de Pozuelo, donde cuenta con un hospital. El Consejo de Seguridad Nuclear ya ha dado su aval a estas instalaciones que ya han entrado en la última fase de su construcción. «El centro de protonterapia es ya una realidad que se ve y se toca», asegura Leticia Moral, directora general de Asistencia y Calidad de Quirónsalud, quien defiende su inversión «como parte de la apuesta continua del grupo por la innovación en los tratamientos».

Para los cánceres más difíciles

Las instalaciones de la Clínica de Navarra (CUN) en la capital tardarán algo más y estarán en condición de ver a sus primeros enfermos a principios de 2020, según confirmó a ABC José Andrés Gómez Cantero, director general de la CUN. Esta unidad formará parte del edificio de radioterapia que ya está funcionando en las instalaciones de la clínica y ocupará una superficie de 3.600 metros cuadrados. El equipo que lidera el proyecto está dirigido por Felipe Calvo y Rafael Martínez Monge, codirectores de Oncología Radioterápica de las sedes de madrid y Pamplona junto a otros 15 profesionales.

La radiación de protones afecta solo al turmor, reduciendo el riesgo de daño en el tejido sano
La radiación de protones afecta solo al turmor, reduciendo el riesgo de daño en el tejido sano

Los tumores pediátricos y sobre todo los localizados en el sistema nervioso y cercanos a tejidos y órganos delicados como los ojos, la cabeza, la médula espinal, el corazón y los pulmones, son los principales candidatos a recibir este tratamiento. «Al principio, la terapia de protones se reservará para tratar los cánceres más difíciles de curar pero creemos que modificará el tratamiento tan intensamente como hicieron los aceleradores lineales que desplazaron hace años a las unidades de cobaltoterapia. El progreso técnico es un salto de calidad tan relevante que se extenderá a una práctica clínica generalizada cuando la tecnología sea más accesible», explica el doctor Felipe Calvo.

Con cuentagotas

Se calcula que podrían ser candidatos a este tratamiento el 2% de los pacientes con cáncer, pero la sanidad pública está enviando a estos pacientes a tratarse a Alemania, Italia, Francia Chequia y Suiza con «cuentagotas» por su elevado coste. El tratamiento cuesta unos 200.000 euros por enfermo, según la Sociedad Española de Oncología Radioterápica (Seor).

La construcción de los dos centros de Madrid acabará con el traslado de enfermos al extranjero si se realizan conciertos con la Sanidad pública, aunque no es suficiente para asumir toda la demanda. Carlos Ferrer, presidente de Seor, considera que dos-tres salas de tratamiento solo harían frente «mínimamente» a las necesidades del país.


          U.N.'s Nikki Haley to leave in latest Trump shake-up      Cache   Translate Page      
WASHINGTON – In the latest shake-up for President Donald Trump’s turbulent administration, U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley abruptly announced Tuesday that she is resigning at the end of the year, raising fresh questions about the Trump team and about the outspoken diplomat’s own political ambitions.

The news blindsided some key U.S. allies and many congressional Republicans involved in foreign policy matters. And it came less than a month before congressional elections, thwarting White House efforts to project an image of stability, with the loss of one of the highest-profile women in the administration at a time when women’s votes are being vigorously pursued.

But Haley, the former South Carolina governor, has often been an unpredictable and independent force in the Trump administration. At times she has offered strikingly different perspectives on world events from her more isolationist-minded boss.

A smiling Haley announced her decision at an Oval Office meeting alongside the president, bringing up her own political prospects even as she underscored her continued support for Trump. Without prompting from reporters, she said she had no plans to run for president “in 2020” and would campaign for Trump.

Haley, who is 46 and not personally wealthy, hinted in her resignation letter to Trump that she is headed to the private sector.

“I have given everything I’ve got these last eight years,” she said, referring to her six years as governor as well as her time at the U.N. “And I do think it’s good to rotate in other people who can put that same energy and power into it.”

Trump was asked why the announcement was made now since Haley is staying until the end of the year.

Instead of answering directly, he recounted how she has had to work on tough issues, such as Iran and North Korea.

White House officials had sought to put a hold on Trump’s record-setting turnover in the run-up to the Nov. 6 elections, with aides being asked months ago to step down or commit to stay through Election Day to avoid adding to a sense of turmoil.

Still, the prospect of post-midterm changes continues to hang over the West Wing, and Haley’s exit was one that has been discussed, according to a senior administration official not authorized to publicly discuss private conversations.

A number of officials speculated that the timing was meant to preserve the ambassador’s own political future. A post in the Trump administration has proved to be a rickety stepping-stone to either lucrative private sector work or hopes for higher office, and the risk to those ambitions might only increase after the elections if Democrats make significant gains in Congress.

Trump said Haley first discussed leaving with him six months ago. The senior official noted that their conversation coincided with the appointments of Mike Pompeo as secretary of state and John Bolton as national security adviser in an earlier upending of top foreign policy officials. Haley had expressed some frustration that her voice had been diminished as the two men became the aggressive new faces of Trump’s international policy, the official said.

More recently, there was the awkward moment at the U.N., when Trump’s boasting of American economic strength under his leadership brought laughter at a General Assembly session. He insisted later that the delegates were laughing with him, not at him.

The six-month timeline also coincides with a high-profile spat between Haley and the White House in April, when she drew the president’s ire for previewing in a television appearance the administration’s planned imposition of a new round of sanctions on Russia. When the sanctions never materialized, White House officials said the plans had changed without Haley being briefed, and economic adviser Larry Kudlow suggested that she was confused.

“I don’t get confused,” Haley said in a sharply worded response to the West Wing.

Haley was appointed to the U.N. post in November 2016 and last month coordinated Trump’s second trip to the United Nations, including his first time chairing the Security Council.

A rookie to international politics, the former South Carolina governor was an unusual pick for to be U.N. envoy. “It was a blessing to go into the U.N. every day with body armor,” Haley said, saying her job was to defend America on the world stage.

At the U.N., she helped spearhead the administration’s efforts to combat what it alleged to be anti-American and anti-Israel actions by the international body, including the U.S. decision to leave the Human Rights Council and to stop funding the U.N. agency for Palestinian Refugees.

Haley also secured three successively tougher Security Council sanction resolutions against North Korea – which the administration has credited with bringing Kim Jong Un to the negotiating table – and an arms embargo against South Sudan. But under Haley’s tenure at the U.N., the U.S. has faced strong opposition from Russia when it comes to addressing the seven-year-old war in Syria, and frustration from European allies over reimposing nuclear sanctions against Iran.

Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One he was considering five candidates for Haley’s job and that a successor would be named in two to three weeks – or maybe sooner. Among those under consideration, Trump said, is former deputy national security adviser Dina Powell. Trump told reporters that he has heard his daughter Ivanka Trump’s name discussed for the post, but said if he selected her he’d be accused of nepotism.

In a tweet, the presidential senior adviser and eldest daughter praised Haley, saying Trump will “nominate a formidable replacement for Ambassador.”

She added: “That replacement will not be me.”

U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell’s name has also been floated for the post, but Trump suggested he’d rather keep him in his current post “because he’s doing such a good job.”

The daughter of Indian immigrants, Haley clashed with then-candidate Trump during the 2016 campaign, denouncing “the siren call of the angriest voices” that disrespected America’s immigrants. Trump tweeted that “The people of South Carolina are embarrassed by Nikki Haley.”

Haley has one child in college and another approaching college age, and she has the potential to make much more money in the business world. She reported owing between $500,000 and $1 million on financial disclosures filed as part of her nomination to be U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. The debts included a personal mortgage of between $250,001 and $500,000, according to the report with the Office of Government Ethics.

Before she was named by Trump to her U.N. post, Haley was elected the first female governor of South Carolina. She was re-elected in 2014. As governor, she developed a national reputation as a racial conciliator who helped lead the effort to bring down the Confederate flag at the Statehouse and helped guide the state through one of its darkest moments, the massacre at a black church.

          Conselho de Política Energética recomenda a Temer dobrar preço da tarifa de Angra 3      Cache   Translate Page      
Tarifa atual é de cerca de R$ 240/MWh, e CNPE sugeriu passar para R$ 480/MWh. Entendimento é que, se usina elevar preço da tarifa, conseguirá concluir obras; entenda. O Conselho Nacional de Política Energética (CNPE) aprovou nesta terça-feira (9) uma recomendação ao presidente Michel Temer para reajustar o valor da tarifa de energia da Usina Nuclear Angra 3 (RJ). A tarifa atual da usina é de R$ 240 megawatts/hora (MWh), e o CNPE sugeriu ao presidente que passe para R$ 480 MWh. O aumento na tarifa é uma damanda da Eletrobras, responsável pelas obras da usina. Segundo a estatal, a tarifa atual é baixa e, por isso, é necessário reajustá-la para que Angra 3 consiga o financiamento necessário para concluir a obra. A expectativa é que com um valor de referência maior para a tarifa, a Eletrobras consiga ir ao mercado e buscar financiamento para retomar as obras da usina. Obras da usina Atualmente, a obra de Angra 3 está parada, mas 63% do empreendimento já foram concluídos. Em 2015, as obras foram paralisadas por falta de recursos e em meio a suspeitas de superfaturamento e a denúncias de corrupção envolvendo empresas contratadas para a montagem da usina. A previsão do governo é que Angra 3 entre em operação em janeiro de 2016. Segundo o Ministério de Minas e Energia, a usina tem capacidade de 1.405 MegaWatts (MW) de energia segura, ou seja, que não depende de condições climáticas. Em nota, a pasta informou que vai propor ao Conselho do Programa de Parcerias de Investimentos a avaliação sobre a possibilidade incluir Angra 3 no PPI, o que permitiria a entrada de um parceiro privado no projeto.
          Diretor-geral da Aneel diz que governo deve encontrar solução para concluir obras de Angra 3      Cache   Translate Page      
Obras da usina nuclear estão paradas desde 2015. Eletrobras, controladora da empresa responsável pela obra, defende um reajuste na tarifa para viabilizar conclusão da usina. O diretor-geral da Agência Nacional de Energia Elétrica (Aneel), André Pepitone, afirmou nesta terça-feira (9) que a obra da Usina Nuclear de Angra 3 precisa ser concluída e que o governo deve encontrar a melhor solução financeira para a finalizar o projeto. Angra 3 está parada desde 2015, mas 63% do empreendimento já foram concluídos. As obras foram interrompidas por falta de recursos, em meio a acusações de superfaturamento e denúncias de corrupção contra empresas contratadas para a montagem da usina. “A gente já passou da discussão se Angra é viável ou inviável. No estágio em que temos o ativo lá acho que o poder público e a regulação precisam achar uma equação financeira para viabilizar Angra”, disse. A Eletrobras, controladora da Eletronuclear, responsável pela obra, defende um reajuste na tarifa da energia da usina. Para o presidente da estatal Wilson Ferreira Junior, a atual tarifa inviabiliza a conclusão da obra, já que não permite que a empresa consiga financiamentos. O assunto será discutido nesta terça-feira na reunião do Conselho Nacional de Política Energética (CNPE). Hoje, a usina tem uma tarifa de energia de cerca de R$ 240 por megawatts-hora (MWh). A Eletrobras quer a aprovação de um reajuste tarifário. Se o governo usasse os parâmetros internacionais para definir o preço da tarifa, ela poderia chegar a R$ 500/MWh.

          There is now tangible evidence that the Israeli Prime Minister was right when he revealed a secret nuclear warehouse in Tehran, Iran       Cache   Translate Page      
Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: Now there’s a new revelation that proves Netanyahu was right on Iran’s nuclear program. What do you know?

KT:  Jimmy some of these amazing documents that Netanyahu referred to in his speech before the UN General Assembly are coming to light in Israel; documents from Israel’s intelligence service, Mossad they’ve been linked to a reporter in Israel and its really amazing information from this second nuclear site that Israel revealed in Netanyahu speech. And by the way, the irony about this is that they told the International Atomic Energy Agency right off the bat when they knew about it and they have done nothing to go inspect the site.

So here’s what they found at this new location at the warehouse or storage facility, they have selfies of Iranian nuclear scientist in front of neutron generators that can only be used in nuclear weapons. This is just irrefutable proof. The Iranians said they weren’t doing that type of research it’s a very special type of research and here is photographic evidence that they were doing it and it only has military applications. 

They also found pieces of a program to mate a nuclear warhead to their Shahab III missile that’s the missile that was designed to strike Israel. It’s capable of carrying a one ton warhead. So here you have the drawings, the design, the specifications and you even had some of the specific pieces of equipment apparently. They also were involved they found information about x-ray cameras. These are ultra fast cameras that help them to map out a nuclear explosion. It’s really all of the pieces of a nuclear weapons program, the program the Iranians consistently denied that they had.

JD: Ken Timmerman with details on the secret nuclear warehouse in Tehran, Iran.

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

When Prime Minister Netanyahu revealed the Iranian secret nuclear warehouse at the United Nations General Assembly there were questions about the reality of such a Iranian spot. Now there is tangible evidence that Netanyahu was correct with the information on this Iranian nuclear site. That kind of evidence is a precursor to the prophetic scenario of the time approaching when Iran will be a major player in the Biblical prophetic plan that is found in God’s word, Ezekiel 38:5 and Daniel 11:44. This evidence is also information to as how close we are to the fulfillment of Bible prophecy.

          Nikki Haley makes her departure official as Trump says she made a 'glamorous' UN Ambassador      Cache   Translate Page      

Donald Trump broken with his usual means of deposing of a cabinet member—dropping a note on their desks while they’re out of town and letting them find out by tweet—to have send UN Ambassador Nikki Haley out the door with a White House event. Haley gave a brief speech in which the most notable moments were likely her claim that she would support Trump in his 2020 effort, and her praise for the sadly unsung heroes of the Trump White House: Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump.

Haley: Jared is such a hidden genius that no one understands.

For his part, Trump repeatedly praised Haley as making the UN Ambassador role “glamourous,” which seems at least half a notch better than Orrin Hatch saying that Christine Blasey Ford was an “attractive” witness. And while Haley claimed that the main reason she wanted to depart was simply to get some time away after eight years in government service, Trump seemed unwilling to let her go.

Trump: You'll be coming back in a different capacity. You can have your pick.

Where other Trump cabinet members have resigned with a stack of Inspector General investigations at their backs, or when Trump forced someone to dream up a reason why they had to resign, on the surface Haley appears to be stepping away from her UN role on her own accord. Perhaps the most striking thing about Haley’s time as UN Ambassador is that both in the US and around the world, Haley is regarded as a “moderate” who “held back the worst impulses” of Trump. That’s amazing … since she’s overseen the withdrawal of the US from the UN Human Rights Commission, ended funding for the UN agency that support Palestinian refugees, supported US withdrawal from the Paris climate change agreement, ended funding for Syrian stabilization, ended funding for the UN population fund, supported the movement of the US embassy to Jerusalem, supported the end of the Iran nuclear treaty, and cast one of three votes against a resolution condemning Nazism.

The results from cross sectional
and longitudinal studies show that periodontitis is closely associated
with cognitive impairment (CI) and Alzhemer's Disease (AD). Further,
studies using animal model of periodontitis and human post-mortem brain
tissues from subjects with AD strongly suggest that a gram-negative
periodontal pathogen, Porphyromonas gingivalis
(Pg) and/or its product gingipain is/are translocated to the brain.
However, neuropathology resulting from Pg oral application is not known.
In this work, we tested the hypothesis that repeated exposure of wild
type C57BL/6 mice to orally administered Pg results in
neuroinflammation, neurodegeneration, microgliosis, astrogliosis and
formation of intra- and extracellular amyloid plaque and neurofibrillary
tangles (NFTs) which are pathognomonic signs of AD.

METHODS:

Experimental
chronic periodontitis was induced in ten wild type 8-week old C57BL/6
WT mice by repeated oral application (MWF/week) of Pg/gingipain for 22
weeks (experimental group). Another 10 wild type 8-week old C57BL/6 mice
received vehicle alone (control group) MWF per week for 22 weeks. Brain
tissues were collected and the presence of Pg/gingipain was determined
by immunofluorescence (IF) microscopy, confocal microscopy, and
quantitative PCR (qPCR). The hippocampi were examined for the signs of
neuropathology related to AD: TNFα, IL1β, and IL6 expression
(neuroinflammation), NeuN and Fluoro Jade C staining (neurodegeneration)
and amyloid beta1-42 (Aβ42) production and phosphorylation of tau
protein at Ser396 were assessed by IF and confocal microscopy. Further,
gene expression of amyloid precursor protein (APP), beta-site APP
cleaving enzyme 1 (BACE1), a disintegrin and metalloproteinase
domain-containing protein10 (ADAM10) for α-secretase and presenilin1
(PSEN1) for ɣ-secretase, and NeuN (rbFox3) were determined by RT-qPCR.
Microgliosis and astrogliosis were also determined by IF microscopy.

RESULTS:

Pg/gingipain
was detected in the hippocampi of mice in the experimental group by
immunohistochemistry, confocal microscopy, and qPCR confirming the
translocation of orally applied Pg to the brain. Pg/gingipain was
localized intra-nuclearly and peri-nuclearly in microglia (Iba1+),
astrocytes (GFAP+), neurons (NeuN+) and was evident extracellularly.
Significantly greater levels of expression of IL6, TNFα and IL1β were
evident in experimental as compared to control group (p<0.01,
p<0.00001, p<0.00001 respectively). In addition, microgliosis and
astrogliosis were evident in the experimental but not in control group
(p <0.01, p<0.0001 respectively). Neurodegeneration was evident in
the experimental group based on a fewer number of intact neuronal cells
assessed by NeuN positivity and rbFOX3 gene expression, and there was a
greater number of degenerating neurons in the hippocampi of
experimental mice assessed by Fluoro Jade C positivity. APP and BACE1
gene expression were increased in experimental group compared with
control group (p<0.05, p<0.001 respectively). PSEN1 gene
expression was higher in experimental than control group but the
difference was not statistically significant (p = 0.07). ADAM10 gene
expression was significantly decreased in experimental group compared
with control group (p<0.01). Extracellular Aβ42 was detected in the
parenchyma in the experimental but not in the control group (p<
0.00001). Finally, phospho-Tau (Ser396) protein was detected and NFTs
were evident in experimental but not in the control group
(p<0.00001).

CONCLUSIONS:

This study is the first to
show neurodegeneration and the formation of extracellular Aβ42 in young
adult WT mice after repeated oral application of Pg. The
neuropathological features observed in this study strongly suggest that
low grade chronic periodontal pathogen infection can result in the
development of neuropathology that is consistent with that of AD.

          Governo autoriza aumento na tarifa de Angra 3      Cache   Translate Page      

O Conselho Nacional de Política Energética (CNPE) aprovou hoje (9) o aumento da tarifa da usina de Angra 3. A medida é apontada como uma das maneiras de viabilizar o término da construção do empreendimento, cujas obras estão paradas desde 2015. Com isso, a tarifa da usina, que atualmente está R$ 240 por megawatts-hora (MWh), irá dobrar atingir até R$ 480/MWh, em valores de julho deste ano.

O aumento foi uma recomendação do grupo de trabalho criado pelo governo para analisar a situação de Angra 3. Na reunião do CNPE também foram aprovados os estudos para a retomada das obras da Usina Nuclear Angra 3. O governo quer buscar investidores externos para auxiliar na finalização da construção.

Em nota, o CNPE informa que Angra 3 está programada para entrar em funcionamento em janeiro de 2026. Os investimentos previstos são de R$ 15,5 bilhões.

Por isso, também foi decidido que o Ministério de Minas e Energia vai propor ao Conselho do Programa de Parcerias de Investimentos (CPPI) uma avaliação da possibilidade de qualificação do empreendimento no Programa de Parceria de Investimentos (PPI), bem como que seja criada estrutura de governança para o acompanhamento dos principais marcos do projeto que vai garantir a entrada em operação da usina dentro do prazo previsto.

De acordo com o ministério, a usina, que tem capacidade de 1.405 MW, pode proporcionar mais segurança energética e elétrica ao sistema elétrico brasileiro. O argumento é que, por estar localizada na Região Sudeste, onde há maior consumo de energia no país, o acionamento da usina poderá gerar menores custos com a transmissão de energia.

“Sua operação corresponderá a um acréscimo de 7,2% da energia armazenável máxima do Subsistema Sudeste/Centro-Oeste e reduzir o acionamento de usinas térmicas com maior custo”, diz a nota do conselho.

The same creative thinking that produced the bomb with its lit fuse had come up with a different kind of delayed action joke that Bibi knew would confuse his audience before being revealed for what it was, trumping Trump’s attempt at humor, so to speak.

Netanyahu produced a series of large photos taken near Tehran by Israeli intelligence showing a wall and a gate. He said it was an Iranian “secret atomic warehouse for storing massive amounts of equipment and material for Iran’s secret nuclear weapons program.”

The audience gasped, clearly impressed by Bibi’s unexpected rollout of a hitherto unknown top secret installation, but the joke came the next day when it was revealed that the complex inside the wall actually contained a number of businesses, including a scrap metal dealership and a carpet cleaning service.

Bibi likely reacted with his Gary Cooper grin, “Hey, the joke’s on you guys who are always whining about Israel’s nuclear stockpile.” A U.S. intelligence official was also apparently in on the jape, commenting a day later that “What Netanyahu said last night was slightly misleading. We knew about the facility in Tehran and it’s a place full of file cabinets and documents, not aluminum pipes or centrifuges.”

          World War II and Epic Fantasy      Cache   Translate Page      
Epic fantasy is, arguably, a form of storytelling highly influenced by the Second World War. World War II remains unusual in military history for being a conflict which can clearly be divided between the “bad guys” (Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan) and the “good guys” (the plucky Brits, the brave French Resistance and the heroic-if-a-bit-tardy United States of America) with a minimum of moral uncertainty. Popular narratives of the Second World War show the heroic, democracy-loving Brits and Yanks storming the beaches of Normandy to save Europe from the diabolical and evil rule of the brutal Third Reich.

Christopher Lee as Saruman in Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings movie trilogy. Lee fought in the British special forces in WWII, in operations that he refused to discuss even decades afterwards.

This is of course monstrously simplistic, and ignores the morally murkier elements of the conflict, such as the Allied mass bombing campaign that was designed to slaughter as many German civilians as possible, and of course the involvement of the Soviet Union in the war. The USSR committed many atrocities of its own (including being complicit in Germany’s invasion of Poland which started the war in the first place) and was willing to accept staggering military and civilian losses to finally defeat the Germans and capture Berlin (a fact glossed over in western accounts of the conflict, which tend to suggest that the US and UK were the primary architects of Hitler’s downfall rather than relative bystanders). Still, the sometimes almost cartoonishly evil nature of the Nazi regime (“Are we the bad guys? If not, why do our uniforms have skulls on them?”) allows it to be presented as an irredeemable foe who must be destroyed at all costs with a minimum of moral qualms, very useful for propaganda, morale and rousing novels, films and video games.

Epic fantasy written in the post-war era feels like it is influenced by this conflict. People writing fantasy in this period either fought in the war directly, were children during it or were born in the aftermath of the conflict and grew up with stories of it from their parents and grandparents.

The fantasy saga sometimes said to have been most influenced by the war is The Lord of the Rings, although J.R.R. Tolkien was scornful of this. He started writing the book in late 1937, two years before the conflict even began, and the story and themes of the book developed out of The Hobbit, mostly written in 1930-32 or thereabouts. The titular One Ring itself is sometimes compared to a nuclear bomb (in its ability to end the War of the Ring in a single stroke rather than actual destructive power) and much is made of the Scouring of the Shire and its similarity to the military occupation of a formerly peaceful territory. However, the Ring was created for The Hobbit and its powers established long before the outbreak of the conflict. Tolkien himself was furious with the idea of the book being an allegory (noting he detested allegory wherever it was found), but did acknowledge the idea of “applicability,” and the disturbing feeling that real events were conforming (somewhat) to those in the book rather than vice versa. Tolkien did acknowledge a much greater influence on the book by his own experiences in World War I, particularly the several months he spent on the Western Front during the Battle of the Somme. The Frodo-Sam relationship is reminiscent of that between a gentleman soldier and his batman, and the Dead Marshes with their hordes of corpses (and semi-undead) lying face-up in the flooded marshlands being an image that stuck with Tolkien from the aftermath of bloody engagements.

Skipping ahead a few generations, Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman’s Dragonlance Chronicles feels like a revamp of the Second World War. The forces of evil gain a series of military advantages from the return of the dark goddess Takhisis and the ability to control evil dragons in battle. This allows them to overrun half the continent of Ansalon and push the remaining nations and our heroes to the brink of defeat. However, our heroes gain the favour of the god Paladine, the allegiance of the good dragons and then the ability to use the fabled dragonlances in battle. This turns the tide and routs the enemy. This can be seen as a reflection of the military technology in WWII: the Germans’ early innovation and technical ingenuity gave them a keen early edge that allowed them to defeat everyone they faced in battle, but later in the conflict the Allies first matched and then exceeded their technological advantage, which the Germans could not sustain and ultimately lost.

Many epic fantasies feature narratives not dissimilar to this. The Wheel of Time shows a growing threat from a powerful opponent who is allowed to go unchecked because the nations that should be unifying against them can’t stop their squabbles with one another, even when the threat becomes blatant. This is an echo of the way Hitler expertly exploited inter-war rivalries between nations such as Russia and Poland to stop opponents joining forces against him (and, indeed, struck an unlikely alliance himself with Russia which prevented them from joining France and Britain in the war). The decision of the forces of “Light” in the books to join forces with the morally highly dubious Seanchan to fight the Dark One can be seen as a reflection of the reluctance with which nations like Britain (whose leader, Churchill, held a deep and abiding hatred of Communism) allied with Russia to fight the greater threat, and the repeated warning that this alliance could sow the seeds of a greater conflict later on (as it very nearly did, with the Cold War almost going nuclear-hot on several occasions, and various visions in The Wheel of Time showing a future where the Seanchan and the other nations resume their conflict).

George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire is rather different, however. The conflict between the Great Houses is of course most strongly influenced by the Wars of the Roses, but there is also a strong influence from World War I: the Houses go to war against one another in a manner reflecting their inter-war alliances and fuelled by grievances (just and unjust) extending back generations, with Jon Arryn’s death and then Tyrion Lannister’s arrest setting in motion a series of falling dominoes leading to conflict as much as Franz Ferdinand’s assassination in August 1914.

The most notable fantasy novel series directly based on World War II is Harry Turtledove’s Darkness series, a six-volume series set on a continent resembling Eurasia which is riven by war. Technological developments are replaced by discoveries in the field of sorcery but every nation has its real-world analogue (albeit often inverted; the war in the desert in Africa is replaced by a war on a southern polar continent) and the conflict unfolds in a very similar manner. Turtledove of course likes to revisit WWII in his alternate history fiction, with his splendidly readable, pulp Worldwar series being set during a WWII interrupted by the arrival of an alien invasion fleet, and his darker Southern Victory series in which the Confederacy survives the Civil War as an independent state and becomes embroiled in further conflicts leading to the establishing of a North American theatre in WWII (which, due to a German victory in WWI and no rising of the Nazi Party, unfolds very differently).


A recent fantasy which directly echoes the war is the video game series Valkyria Chronicles. Set on the continent of Europa, the story charts the outbreak of war between the East Europan Imperial Alliance (a blending of Nazi Germany in ideology and Soviet Russia in size and manpower) and the Atlantic Federation (a mixture of western European nations such as Britain and France, and NATO of the Cold War period, albeit with an American analogue which is very reluctant to get involved in the fight). The war opens with the Empire invading the Federation and the small neutral nation of Gallia (based loosely on the Netherlands and Belgium), the latter both to seize its deposits of ragnite (a valuable ore which powers advanced technology) and to allow it to invade the Federation on a second front. Unlike the real war, where the Low Countries were overrun quickly, in the game the much smaller Gallian army is able to rally around the nation’s complex geography (particularly its rivers and canals) and prevent the numerically superior Imperial army from seizing the country. The Empire’s insistence on deploying increasingly insane and impractical tanks on the battlefield and its constant hunt for superweapons is an echo of Hitler’s insistence on deploying increasingly unreliable new technology during WWII rather than refining existing designs, not to mention his increasingly desperate search for “doomsday weapons” that could end the war quickly. Even the Mamota, an insane “land battleship” which the Empire uses at the end of the game, is based on a real idea, the Landkreuzer P.1000 Ratte, a 1,000-ton tank Hitler heartily endorsed but whose development was cancelled by Albert Speer on the reasonable grounds it was ridiculous.

Valkyria Chronicles (2008) is unusual in combining both direct WWII elements – guns, artillery, grenades, tanks, propaganda and pogroms against a scapegoated minority (the Darcsens replacing the Jews) – and traditional fantasy tropes. There is an ancient magical race, the Valkyrur, whose power lingers into the modern age and at key moments both protagonists and antagonists gain access to their power. There are magical items and hopeless struggles by a plucky band of up-against-the-odds heroes against monstrous enemies (although some of them are shown to have a code of individual honour at odds with the atrocities their forces commit). Surprisingly cynically, the Federation, which becomes prominent in Valkyria Chronicles 4 (2018), is shown to sometimes be brutal and cold as well, willing to sacrifice vast numbers of civilian lives and infringe the borders of sovereign nations in order to get an upper hand against the Empire and is secretly developing a weapon of mass destruction behind the scenes. The oddest element of the Valkyria universe, given how closely it parallels WWII, is the near-total absence of aircraft from the conflict, with the few aircraft mentioned or appearing being WWI-style biplanes.

Of course, the straightforward (if not exactly accurate) good vs. evil nature of WWII gave rise afterwards to much more morally murky conflicts where the notions of good, evil, justice and injustice became far more fluid: Suez, Vietnam, Bosnia, the Iraq War and clashes of religious fundamentalists. This can be seen in the type of fantasy fiction that has followed: the Black Company (by Vietnam vet Glen Cook) and Steven Erikson’s The Malazan Book of the Fallen (inspired by a lot of war fiction, and indeed The Black Company) are much less clear-cut tales where good and evil are less of an issue. Joe Abercrombie explores some of the same issues of morally flexible real politik in his First Law world. Scott Bakker’s Second Apocalypse series (including the Prince of Nothing and Aspect-Emperor sub-series) delves deep into religious fundamentalism and fanaticism. Mark Lawrence’s Broken Empire series presents the world with a monstrously damaged human being who commits atrocities but who, ultimately, may end up saving the world. The moral relativism of post-WWII conflicts has been well matched and explored by fantasy fiction, perhaps too much for some as we’ve also seen a re-emergence of throwback fantasy, more concerned with more straightforward tales of good vs. evil (such as Michael Sullivan’s Ririya series and Brandon Sanderson’s Cosmere works).

WWII will remain a rich source of inspiration for fantasy fiction, although it is refreshing (if perhaps a tad depressing) to see other, less clear-cut conflicts being mined for different kinds of stories.

E per non scoraggiarci, ci rincuora il diabolico marketing o la fantasia di alcuni professori di atenei sparsi nel globo terracqueo: esistono corsi di laurea totalmente inutili, organizzati per farsi pubblicità e garantire la disoccupazione.Se dovessimo fare una classifica delle lauree più insignificanti, perniciose per una carriera professionale, l'Europa, includendo l'Italia, è da hit parade. Ad esempio, la Gran Bretagna, in fuga dall'Europa, terra di antiche e prestigiose accademie, culle del sapere e di Premi Nobel, ha nell'Università del Kent un coraggioso corso triennale di "Stand-up comedian". Quindici esami triennali per creare un comico che da solo, su un palco, senza sedersi mai, privo di scenografia, deve intrattenere, possibilmente facendo molto ridere, il pubblico di un teatro come di un bar. Anche Jerry Lewis ha iniziato così, mosso dal talento, più che da una specifica erudizione. "È una forma teatrale di successo e anche i più negati potrebbero imparare la tecnica", dicono dal Kent.In Olanda, a Rotterdam, l'Università di Codarts, garantisce di trasformarvi in un pagliaccio nel giro di due anni, con il corso in "Clown e arti circensi". Qui si studia per fare il buffone sotto a un tendone, o alle feste di compleanno della nipotina e delle amiche. Si insegna anche a volteggiare sul trapezio e a interagire con foche, elefanti e leoni. Per l'ultimo corso la segreteria chiede una liberatoria nel caso lo studente ci lasci la pelle. O la testa tra le fauci feline. Ma più che i rischi professionali, spaventa il fatto che il circo sta lentamente morendo, quei pochi sopravvissuti hanno giustamente rinunciato agli animali e di certo non assumono più. E, poi, bambini e ragazzini oggi preferiscono la Play Station.Nell'Università di Roskilde, in Danimarca hanno le idee chiare sul concetto, ma noi non sull'applicazione. Se un direttore di un festival, un imprenditore e un wedding planner unissero le loro forze, ne uscirebbe un "design perfomer". Che cosa sia, però, nessuno sa spiegarlo con convinzione: dovrebbe essere un esperto capace di analizzare, sviluppare e gestire festival e conferenze. Ma per questo non basta una laurea in Comunicazione?Forse bisognerebbe porre un freno all'entusiasmo con cui la Ue finanzia gli atenei. In Portogallo l'Università di Coimbra, offre una laurea biennale di "Pace, sicurezza e sviluppo". Perché se il mondo corre inesorabilmente verso la guerra nucleare, abbiamo bisogno di menti erudite capaci di salvare le sorti globali con un paio di esami. Secondo l'università questa laurea magistrale vuole approfondire la "conoscenza teorica e concettuale delle problematiche legate alla pace, alla sicurezza, allo sviluppo e alle sfide umanitarie nel mondo". A parte questo, l'ateneo non chiarisce quali siano i possibili sbocchi professionali per gli studenti.A Belgrado, nella sua università fondata nel 1808, tra le 31 facoltà disponibili e i 150 corsi accademici, spicca "Scienze bibliotecarie e informatiche" che, sulla carta, sembrerebbe avere un senso. Tre anni di studio di scienza bibliotecaria e informatica per gestire una biblioteca. Sinceramente basterebbe un corso di due mesi. Poi la triste realtà ci dice che in Serbia le pochissime biblioteche rimaste in piedi dopo la guerra, sono a rischio chiusura perché prive di fondi. In Pennsylvania, c'è un corso per "Hackeraggio non criminale": imparerete a entrare in qualsiasi sistema informatico blindato, dal Pentagono alla Banca Europea, senza rubare o fare danni. Così, per curiosare.E da questo demenziale spreco di risorse accademiche, non è esente l'Italia. A Bari ci si laurea in "Igiene e benessere del cane e del gatto". Non serve una laurea precedente in "Veterinaria", basta l'entusiasmo e due anni a perdere. Un posto come toelettatore per quadrupedi e felini è, forse, assicurato. A Bologna, al Dams, esiste una specializzazione in laurea magistrale in "Discipline dello spettacolo dal vivo", consigliato ad "aspiranti critici teatrali, registi e attori con un solido bagaglio culturale" recita l'opuscolo informativo. Da questo corso di laurea si esce "professionisti connessi all'arte scenica". La Federico II di Napoli ha attivato una laurea triennale in "Verde ornamentale". I possibili impieghi vanno dalla progettazione degli spazi verdi alla produzione vivaistica.Anche Pisa, come nel Kent, potete buttare via tre anni della vostra vita con una bella laurea magistrale in "Scienza per la pace". L'ateneo pisano è l'unico italiano per i "Peace Studies". Nell'università di Firenze, fondata sette secoli fa, ci si laurea in "Sviluppo agricolo in zone tropicali". Così da chiedervi se cresceranno i carciofi a Bangkok.

          Won't accept Pak's double standard of justice: MQM chief      Cache   Translate Page      

[United Kingdom], Oct 10, (ANI): Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) founder and leader Altaf Hussain on Wednesday vowed to rebuild a new state for Mohajir people who have allegedly been denied equal rights and justice by Pakistan from the past several decades.

Speaking at his 65th anniversary here, Hussain said, "Justice system in Pakistan is of dual standard, which is unacceptable. We would either accept a fully autonomous and powerful province for Mohajirs or a complete new Mohajir State. We won't accept anything less than either of these options."

The MQM founder discussed in detail the prevailing anti-Mohajir and anti-Baloch policies of the state of Pakistan and asked, "What would be the exact feelings on seeing others occupying the house on gun points, exploiting all resources on the basis of power and influence? This is the typical situation that calls for use of power to retrieve the stolen rights. The oppressors would never listen to us unless we use the same strategy, say the use of power to repel them out of our lands"

Elaborating on the ongoing issue, Hussain added, "This is the typical situation that calls for use of power to retrieve the stolen rights. The oppressors would never listen to us unless we use the same strategy, say the use of power to repel them out of our lands."

The MQM founder further said that he has been questioned as to why he had slammed Pakistan ignoring that his people have been kidnapped and enforced to disappear and are extra-judicially murdered and these things are enough to upset any sensible mind. When Mohajir women visited Martyrs' monument at Azizabad, they were subjected to torture and arrest and even minor children were also not spared, he noted.

"Mohajirs' ancestors created Pakistan but today their offspring are denied of their just equal rights and are treated as slaves. Mohajirs had laid 2 million lives for the creation of Pakistan but they armed forces of the country had slaughtered more than 22, 000 Mohajirs during special crackdowns. Not only this but a senescent leader of the Movement, a 70-year old academician Prof. Dr Hassan Zafar Arif was picked and murdered by the armed forces of the country on Jan 13, 2018, forgetting his role in educating millions in Pakistan. Are the armed forces and law enforcers for peoples' protection or butchering them? Will they be saluted or slammed?" he questioned.

Stressing on the inequality faced by Mohajirs, Hussain said when Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif was produced in the court of law, his party workers were possessing armoured personnel carrier, but the police did not book them for any offence. "But when the women journalists belonging to Mohajir community entered an office of a Pakistani private television company asking them to be unbiased in reporting, the paramilitary Rangers and Police tortured them and later lodged them in jail. The Rangers had also killed one of the youngest workers of the movement."

"Tehreek-e Labbaik had attacked media houses, police stations and public property but they were felicitated with cash prizes while MQM women were subjected to torture and straight fire. Why this double standard? The Chief Justice of Pakistan ignored Khadim Hussain Rizvi who openly called names to him but on the contrary, the CJP awarded sentences to other political leaders in the garb of contempt to court."

Hussain continued, "Not only that, the Creator of Pakistan's nuclear programme and the atomic bomb, Dr Abdul Qadeer Khan was also a Mohajir but was humiliated and the entire credit was given to a Punjabi Scientist Dr. Samar Mund. Was that not sheer bias against the Mohajir Nation? We won't accept this double standard of justice, denied of justice. The state institutions are not willing or ready to listen to us and are taking all measures to eliminate us. Either we would accept a fully autonomous and powerful province or we would fight for independent Mohajir State."

The MQM leader also touched upon the issues of the Baloch community and said, "Pakistan's army is butchering the innocent Baloch youths because they are demanding equal rights. The army is killing them after declaring them as terrorists. Army has to roll back their plans and they would have to free Balochistan and we are the supporters of free and independent Balochistan."

While addressing the people of Punjab, he asked them to take to streets for supporting Baloch and Mohajirs in their fight for equality and human rights. Hussain also clarified that he had never slammed Pakistan but had slammed its corrupt and butchering feudal system."Pakistan should be free from the decayed feudal system, corrupt Capitalist system and that everyone in Pakistan should have equal rights and equal citizens. The minorities in Pakistan, especially the Ahmedi, should also be respected with regard to their rights and religious freedom as Pakistani citizens."

Hussain also talked about the judicial system of the Pakistan and said, "It is beyond reasoning that the apex court of Pakistan has declared Nawaz Sharif as most dishonest person but, on the other hand has held Imran Khan Niazi, the Prime Minister of Pakistan as most honest person ignoring the fact that the court of Los Angeles had already declared him as fornicator, a biological father of a girl child he reproduced out of marriage."

"Everything in Pakistan is done either by Pakistan's army or on its dictation and no institutions in Pakistan including the judiciary is free from the clutches of the army. What the courts in Pakistan are doing is only done on army's behest and dictation," he added.

Hussain also alleged that courts in Pakistan declare anyone as a traitor if instructed to do so by the Army. "The country is under siege," he added. (ANI)


          Next meeting with Kim after midterm polls: Trump      Cache   Translate Page      

[USA], Oct 10 (ANI): United States President Donald Trump has said that he plans to hold the next meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un after the midterm elections next month.

Trump is undertaking a whirlwind tour across the country to highlight his administration's achievements, which includes hosting the first-ever meeting with Kim in Singapore in June and US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's visits to North Korea for denuclearisation talks. He remarked, "I just can't leave now," The Hill reported.

During the previous meeting in Singapore, Kim and Trump agreed to work towards achieving denuclearisation in the Korean Peninsula, where the former expressed his commitment to abandon the country's nuclear weapons programme in exchange for "security guarantees".

On October 7, Pompeo had visited Pyongyang and held talks with the North Korean leader on laying the groundwork for the second summit between the latter and Trump and resuming the stalled denuclearisation talks between the two countries. The meeting was described as "good and productive". The two leaders agreed to hold the second meeting "at the earliest possible date".

While Pyongyang, on the one hand, repeatedly asserted that it has taken various steps to dismantle its nuclear weapons programme in exchange for a possible sanctions relief, the US,on the other hand, has reiterated that it will not lift the sanctions unless North Korea achieves "complete and fully verifiable denuclearisation".

North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho had said at the 73rd United Nations General Assembly last month that there would be no unilateral denuclearisation without "any trust in the US and confidence in its own national security." (ANI)

France faces Hague complaint over Polynesia nuclear tests

Text by NEWS WIRES

Latest update : 2018-10-10

A complaint has been filed at the Hague-based International Criminal Court against France for alleged crimes against humanity over nuclear tests conducted in the South Pacific, a French Polynesian opposition leader said on Tuesday.
"It's with a great sense of duty and determination that we filed a complaint at the International Criminal Court on October 2 for crimes against humanity," Oscar Temaru, who is also the French archipelago's former president, said at the United Nations.

"This case aims to hold all the living French presidents accountable for the nuclear tests against our country."

Speaking during a meeting about French Polynesia as part of a UN committee focused on decolonization, he said: "We owe it to all the people who died from the consequences of nuclear colonialism."

The overseas French territory, with about 290,000 people, is best known nowadays for its tourist island of Tahiti.

But its Mururoa and Fangataufa atolls saw 193 nuclear tests over three decades until then-president Jacques Chirac ended the program in the 1990s.

The French Polynesia tests were among a total of 210 carried out -- also in Africa's Sahara desert -- with about 150,000 civilian and military personnel between 1960 and 1996.

Thousands of them later developed serious health problems.

Only around 20 of approximately 1,000 people who filed complaints against France have received compensation.

"We see French nuclear tests as no less than the direct result of colonization," Temaru said, adding the testing was imposed upon the islanders "with the direct threat of imposing military rule if we refused."

Temaru, who favors independence, said France has "ignored and shown contempt" for repeated offers since 2013 to come to the table under UN supervision.

France long denied its responsibility for the health and environmental impacts of its testing, out of fear the admission would weaken its nuclear program during the Cold War.

Only in 2010 did France pass a law authorizing compensation for military veterans and civilians whose cancer could be attributed to the test program.

          Shunned By Democrats, Clintons Plan Post-Midterms Speaking Tour; Tickets Priced Up To $750      Cache   Translate Page      

Bill and Hillary Clinton, who have kindly been asked by fellow Democrats to make themselves scarce during midterms, will embark on a 13-city speaking tour beginning in Las Vegas on November 18, according to Bloomberg.

Tickets won't be cheap either - with prices for the first show ranging from around $72 to $750 on ticketmaster to watch the prototypical American power couple "sharing stories and inspiring anecdotes that shaped their historic careers in public service, while also discussing issues of the day and looking towards the future," according to an announcement from Live Nation. 

Bloomberg points out that the new speaking tour is likely to stoke criticism over the Clintons leveraging their political fame to give expensive speaking tours - including an infamous $500,000 speech to a Kremlin-linked investment bank amid the Uranium One deal (a trip during which Clinton and Putin hung out at the Russian president's house). 

The tour and ticket prices could reignite criticism of the former first couple for profiting from their former offices. During the 2016 campaign, Republicans blasted Hillary Clinton for giving highly paid speeches to corporate audiences after leaving public service.

Indeed, the Clinton tour follows two years of declining popularity - between Hillary Clinton's historic 2016 loss to Donald Trump, and Bill Clinton's old rape allegations cropping up amid the #MeToo phenomenon. 

Vanity Fair writes "The Trump era has not been kind to the Clintons, the prototypical American power couple who, after three decades in the public eye, have seen their political capital vastly diminished. Hillary, indelibly marked by her 2016 election loss, has played only a limited role in the midterms, given the Democratic Party’s newfound aversion to her brand of establishment politics. Bill, meanwhile, has undergone a belated reckoning with #MeToo." 

[T]he issue of Hillary’s “likability”—as Barack Obama so memorably put it—is now secondary to the #MeToo scandals hanging over Bill, and the awkward questions she has been forced to address. In a recent interview with CNN, she drew a painstaking line between Bill and the numerous allegations of sexual misconduct against the current president, noting, “There’s a very significant difference, and that is the intense, long-lasting, partisan investigation that was conducted in the 90s. If the Republicans, starting with President Trump on down, want a comparison, they should welcome such an investigation themselves.” That answer may be sufficient for the dwindling number of hardcore Clinton fans, but it is unlikely to win converts. -Vanity Fair

Tickets for the Clinton tour go on sale Friday. It should be fun to compare crowd sizes between Trump rallies and Clinton appearances.

          "Like A Ritz-Carlton Underground" - Paranoid Hampton Billionaires Build Luxury Panic Rooms Amid MS-13 Threat      Cache   Translate Page      

In the most extended bull market ever, a new trend has emerged in the Hamptons, a luxury Long Island playground for millionaires and billionaires, which involves the ultra-wealthy installing panic rooms packed with guns for the next apocalypse, according to a New York Post report Saturday.

"I sleep with a gun underneath my pillow: a Walther PPK/S, the same one James Bond carried," said John Catsimatidis, owner of Red Apple Group and Gristedes Foods, who has a vacation property in East Quogue. "[My wife] Margo prefers a shotgun. Although, once, she thought she heard something, got the shotgun out and shot through the door."

The Post said the billionaire and his family, like many others in the Hamptons, are terrified over new concerns that MS-13 has a growing presence in the area.

In April, the vicious Salvadorian gang murdered four men behind a sports field in Central Islip. Over the summer, a Hampton Bays brothel raided by local police found MS-13 insignia. And in 2016, the Post notes, a man with MS-13 affiliation broke into an upscale Southampton home and sexually assaulted a woman.

As authorities crack down on gang strongholds in western Suffolk County, Southampton Town Police Chief Steven Skryneck warned that ongoing police raids would push gangs, and violence into his jurisdiction [Southampton].

Chief Skrynecki, who took command earlier this year told residents attending August's Hampton Bays Beautification Association meeting that his officers are seeing signs of the gang in Southampton.

One Southampton millionaire, who requested to remain anonymous for security reasons, told the Post that she recently had a security company install bulletproof glass and high-tech surveillance cameras throughout the estate.

"MS-13 is in Suffolk County," she said. "What’s an hour car ride? They are near."

The anonymous millionaire is not alone. "The home-security business is very event- and news-driven," said Gary Blum, president of Armored Entry, a company that installs bullet-proof, super-secure windows and doors. "We get business when there is a tremendous amount of fear being generated."

Blum told the Post his bulletproof windows are not cheap, starting at $6,000 per window, "you can beat it with a sledgehammer without making a dent."

Chris Cosban, and his company Covert Interiors, has seen demand soar in the Hamptons for panic rooms ranging from $25,000 to $200,000. "The big thing [with homeowners] in the Hamptons is that if somebody has it, they all want it," said Cosban. "There is a wow factor ... They like to brag about it."

Herman Weisberg, managing director of the personal-security firm Sage Intelligence Group, told the Post that his Hamptons clients want their panic rooms to double as home theaters, home offices, wine cellars or even gun vaults where assault rifles and shotguns can be stored.

"People used to open up their garages and show off their Lamborghinis," Weisberg said. "Now they take guests to the wine bar in their safe room."

Catsimatidis, who also had his home broken into, worries about the MS-13 threat, has installed infrared sensors at his place. But, the paranoia of social destabilization is not just with the billionaires and millionaires on the East Coast, Al Corbi, president of SAFE (Strategically Armored & Fortified Environments), an architecture-focused security firm, just "finished a system for $100 million" with a panic room on the West Coast. "That sounds like a lot but there is nothing I know of, human or manmade, that could possibly harm this family for three generations, including global nuclear holocaust, a pandemic or a second Ice Age," he said, adding that, "it is like a Ritz-Carlton underground."

Some residents in the Hamptons told the Post that some of their neighbors have entirely gone overboard fortifying their estates for the apocaplyse. "In the Hamptons, it’s hard to know if someone is an oligarch and lots of security makes sense, or if somebody is just paranoid," said one East Hampton resident who wished to remain anonymous.

Middle child is HS senior. Wants engineering, and wants a school with decent nuclear engineering, which limits choices some (he's not locked into nukes, but wants the option, at least). Ga. Tech is #1 choice, others include Missouri S&T, Wisconsin, Michigan. We're in the St. Louis area, so Missouri S&T is in-state (and close), the others, not... He's got a decent chance at Ga. Tech admission, I think (35 ACT, high GPA), but it's a tough school. Missouri S&T is pretty safe. Not sure about Wisconsin or Michigan. (And while, at the moment, Ga. Tech is the clear leader if accepted, it's not totally clear he'd choose Wisc. or Mich. over Missouri S&T, if Ga. Tech rejected). Anyways, he's had some degree of direct exposure to all 4, but in varying ways. For Missouri S&T, we visited, had a tour, and then got about an hour+ session with a nuclear engineering prof that was just the prof and us. Our son was really impressed with the prof. For Ga. Tech, he went there twice, for about 3 weeks each time, with Duke TIP, during the summer (most recently about 2 years back). So he saw the campus, extensively, and they may have given the TIPsters a mini-tour, but I don't think he really got a full-fledged admissions style tour, much less anything focused on engineering. For Michigan, he toured with his older sister in spring, 2016 I think, but the focus was on older sister's interests - not engineering. For Wisconsin, we got a drive by look at the campus on a cold November day (around Thanksgiving) a year or two back (no tour). For "demonstrated interest"-type admissions purposes, I'm not sure if he's got it anywhere other than Missouri S&T. (I don't remember if he signed in at the Michigan tour or just his sister.) For purposes of an engineering-focused tour, I don't think he's done that anywhere other than Missouri S&T. And his general memories of the others are relatively out of date. I'm not sure how focused he was on any of the early occasions... === So, we could scramble to tour one or more of Ga Tech/Mich/Wisc this fall. But they're all somewhat distant, and not that near each other. A tour would: A) Help him firm up his mental images of them. B) Possible cause some re-ordering of preferences (or not) C) Give him a view of different engineering programs, beyond the one he's really seen (at Missouri S&T) D) Might help with the "demonstrated interest" factor of the admissions process Last I spoke to him, he's sort of in the middle on this - wouldn't mind seeing some schools, but not burning with desire to do so, either. Days off are at a premium in the school year. He could miss a day or two if need be - his fall schedule is not that bad...

A sinner is a psychopath, who is enticed and overcome by the temptations of the demons to gain footholds in pride, lust, greed, envy, anger, gluttony and sloth. I am guilty of all these sins, which is why the Almighty sent my demon to inject into my left ear with reptilian murderous fury, thermonuclear hot and simultaneously liquid nitrogen cold anger, "I WILL KILL YOU ALLLLLLLL!!!" hissing as reptiles do. This sent me through the air in a ballistic arc from the bed, landing on the floor at the end of the bed on my knees, begging the Lord never to hear that voice again. Shaking like a leaf in a hurricane and sweating like a sponge in Niagara Falls, I realized later that this was necessary to break me from my malicious habits, one of which was a particularly highly talented lover who had captivated me and almost broke up my marriage. That sin of lust and infidelity, sins of the flesh which the Blessed Mother said at Fatima were the cause of most people falling into Hell, were fiendishly difficult to repel, finally succeeding through a devotion to St. Joseph, the foster father of Christ, called "the Terror of Demons." Another time I was laying prostrate before the Blessed Sacrament of a Catholic Church late one night, asking the Lord, Truly Present there, the state of my soul. He had the demon press down on my left shoulder so hard I thought it would break. Now it is God Who has created all the natural world, and He allows satan to tempt us because Lucifer was so brilliant an angel before he was ejected from Heaven that we need to recognize we are in spiritual warfare. That may be repellent to you, but since you are accepting of the Cardinal Sins as your daily regimen and haven't the knowledge of the Faith to fight the good fight daily, but instead reside in cyberspace criticizing others, then who is it you are serving? Hmmmmm???
          Manifiesto XXXII Marcha a Rota: "hemos vuelto a las puertas de esta base militar de Rota para reclamar el derecho de las andaluzas y los andaluces a vivir en paz"      Cache   Translate Page      

La XXXII Marcha a Rota se desarrolló el día de ayer, domingo 7 de octubre, y contó con la participación de más de 200 personas que volvieron a gritar ‘OTAN no, bases fuera’.

La manifestación salía a mediodía del parque Calderón en El Puerto, y se ha centrado en denunciar que la presencia de las bases en territorio andaluz “nos convierten en cómplices de guerras que se alargan en el tiempo por los intereses del negocio de las armas de las grandes potencias”. No ha faltado la denuncia del contrato de las corbetas para Arabia, que se construirán en la Bahía, y la exigencia de un nuevo modelo de desarrollo económico en la provincia no dependiente de la industria militar.

MANIFIESTO MARCHA A ROTA 7 DE OCTUBRE 2018

Aquí estamos un año más. Llegamos de nuevo a las puertas de esta fábrica de guerra llamada Base Naval de Rota a traer nuestras pancartas, nuestros deseos y nuestra apuesta de que Andalucía sea de una vez por todas, tierra de paz y de acogida. Venimos a levantar estas alambradas y a derribar estos muros del horror; venimos a proponer un futuro donde toda la inversión económica y humana que sostiene este monumento a la muerte se ponga al servicio del desarrollo y de la paz.

Ha sido un año duro en el que las guerras como la de Siria, Yemen, Sudán del Sur y República Centroafricana, han causado miles de víctimas, y la huida de sus hogares de millones de familias. Las grandes potencias económicas con su ambición, y los grandes beneficios del negocio de las armas generan un desesperado y masivo movimiento de población que huye de los conflictos y cruza el Mediterráneo buscando refugio. Europa, que conoció movimientos migratorios semejantes cuando su propia población huía asustada de la maquinaria de guerra nazi, o España, que conoció fenómenos de semejante magnitud tras el alzamiento fascista de 1936, responden a este llamado de auxilio con políticas abiertamente xenófobas o con acuerdos y protocolos supuestamente humanitarios que nunca llegan a plasmarse. El resultado son muertes en el mar, devoluciones o confinamientos que conculcan los derechos humanos, muros más altos, alambradas más sólidas y fronteras más tupidas y militarizadas.

Desde el África subsahariana, generaciones y generaciones de hombres y mujeres jóvenes, el capital humano que debía desarrollar la sociedad en países como Gambia, Senegal, Mali, etc.., cruza el continente alentados por la imperiosa necesidad de construir un futuro para los suyos tras la esquilmación sistemática que las grandes multinacionales están haciendo con sus países y sus riquezas nacionales.

En definitiva, Europa, socia interesada en la ocultación y la sangría de todo un continente, se beneficia en sus conflictos y empobrecimiento pero niega el derecho de asilo a las poblaciones afectadas por el conflicto. Los voceros europeos - políticos, sociólogos, periodistas,…- dibujan, anuncian “invasiones” y dan alimento al surgimiento de un nuevo fascismo populista y xenófobo cuyas ideas anidan en los gobiernos del viejo continente.

Ha sido también un año duro para la dignidad de Andalucía. La dignidad perseguida y pisoteada. Un año en que se nos quiere obligar a elegir entre el hambre, el paro o la complicidad con el crimen. Se nos quiere convencer de que la única posibilidad para nuestra industria naval es ser, como esta base de Rota, una pieza más de la estrategia terrorista de los más poderosos, alinearse de lado de las monarquías autocráticas que masacran países como Yemen, construir sus barcos de guerra igual que otros obreros de otras partes del Estado construyen sus bombas. Un negocio suculento y criminal que beneficia a un puñado de familias herederas de monarquías medievales con el apoyo y amistad de la monarquía española.

¿Dónde quedó la dignidad de aquel movimiento obrero que en Septiembre del 77 se manifestaba en Cádiz para negarse a reparar el buque Escuela Esmeralda, centro de tortura de la dictadura de Pinochet? ¿Qué queda en nosotras y nosotros del ejemplo de aquellos obreros alemanes y portugueses que boicoteaban la fabricación de las armas que los fascistas les compraban para masacrar a quienes defendían la República? Hay que reivindicar la dignidad rebelde de la reciente “asamblea de los tornos” que convocó la huelga general del Metal gaditano en defensa de cargas de trabajo sostenible y contra la precariedad laboral. La industria de la guerra es también oscura contra sus propios trabajadores y trabajadoras, deteriorando las condiciones de trabajo hasta hacerlas peligrosas para sus vidas.

Nos quieren hacer creer que sólo hay un camino para la prosperidad en nuestra tierra y que este pasa por fabricar concertinas, alambradas, patrulleras, aviones, fusiles, bombas... Y se hostiga, a veces desde posiciones supuestamente de izquierdas, a las voces discordantes con el discurso del posibilismo. Voces valientes desde el movimiento sindical más alternativo, colectivos sociales, ecologistas o antirracistas, voces como la nuestra que creen que otro futuro es posible para la industria naval y para el resto la industria de la Bahía ligándola a sectores como las energías limpias y alternativas, la “deconstrucción naval” reconvirtiendo buques obsoletos en transportes sostenibles… En ese sentido, la Plataforma que organiza esta marcha se ha dirigido a la presidenta de la Junta de Andalucía, Susana Díaz, para instarle a que no nos mienta, y deje de obligar a nuestra gente a elegir entre el paro o el crimen, entre el hambre o las bombas, para que oiga las propuestas avanzadas que exigen empleo para la Bahía pero un empleo digno y sostenible que no condene a Andalucía a ser señalada como verdugo de otros pueblos.

Esta base militar, cerca de la cual se ahogaron hace ahora quince años más de treinta y cinco personas sin que se percatara ninguno de sus radares, ni se moviera ni uno solo de sus barcos, sin que ninguno de sus focos iluminara el cementerio en que se convirtió esa noche la mar, esta base no es neutral. “Esos de ahí enfrente, matan a la gente”, gritábamos hace años cuando desde otras ediciones de estas marchas, veíamos salir los aviones hacia Irak, hacia Libia… Hoy siguen saliendo y matando en Siria, por ejemplo. Siguen saliendo en misiones de apoyo a gobiernos como el de Israel que bloquea y condena a morir de hambre al rebelde pueblo palestino en Gaza. Ni uno solo de los esfuerzos de esta base está dirigido, por ejemplo, a evitar las muertes en el Mediterráneo. Ni uno solo de sus barcos patrulla esta bahía para librar de la muerte a tanta mujer, tanto hombre, tanta criatura como se la juega en sus aguas. Eso queda para el esfuerzo valiente de algunas ONGs que son sistemáticamente obstaculizadas y perseguidas por su generosa labor.

Una base que no solo no cuida de la población sino que con su propia existencia pone en peligro la seguridad de las poblaciones de la provincia al situarnos en el ojo del huracán. El pasado junio cayó el mayor dron espía de EEUU en Rota y no informaron de ello. ¿Cómo podrá protegernos de mayores ataques quien no puede ni siquiera controlar la caída de sus propios drones? Es de risa si no causara tanto horror

¿Qué hubiera pasado si en vez de un dron hubiera sido un proyectil de otro calibre más mortífero? Sabemos de las continuas escalas de submarinos nucleares en sus muelles como el que llegó hace pocas fechas.

¿Quién controla el motivo de esa escalas y el riesgo para la población que suponen?

Y todo a cambio de un empleo cada vez más precarizado, con una plantilla cada vez más reducida que tiene que pelear constantemente porque el capital americano no entiende de derechos de las personas que trabajan para él.

Construir una sociedad para la paz no es sólo negarse a manufacturar y vender bombas y armas, no solo atañe a las trabajadoras y los trabajadores de la industria naval; también es cómplice quien en las escuelas asiente con los nuevos planes de educación militar y para la guerra, quién no se moviliza contra la xenofobia y la esquilmación terrorista que el Norte hace del sur, quien financia de manera sumisa con sus impuestos las políticas armamentísticas o quién con su voto concede mayorías a los partidos que apoyan el orden hegemónico de las potencias mundiales.

Por eso hemos vuelto hoy a las puertas de esta base militar de Rota para reclamar el derecho de las andaluzas y los andaluces a vivir en paz, a construir una Andalucía que sea tierra de acogida de las personas que hoy necesitan de nuestra solidaridad, una Andalucía sin alambradas, sin racismo y sin bases militares; una Andalucía con empleo de calidad, con una industria que construya futuro y una clase trabajadora que no se vea forzada a mitigar su justa hambre de pan, techo y dignidad a base de masacrar a otros pueblos hermanos.

¡Andalucía, tierra de paz y acogida! OTAN NO, Bases fuera.


           Expertos sobre Cambio Climático de Naciones Unidas (IPCC): "es posible evitar el calentamiento de más de 1,5 ºC si se actúa con urgencia y determinación"      Cache   Translate Page      
  • Las emisiones globales de CO2 deben reducirse a la mitad para el año 2030.
  • Para alcanzar el objetivo de 1,5 ºC, el consumo mundial de carbón tendría que reducirse al menos en dos tercios para 2030 y caer hasta casi cero para 2050.
  • Para 2030, el uso de petróleo debería reducirse a la mitad y el de gas en un tercio.
  • La protección de los bosques y la reforestación son esenciales para evitar tanto un calentamiento de 1,5 ºC como de 2º C.

Incheon, Corea, 8 de octubre de 2018 –. El Grupo Intergubernamental de Expertos sobre Cambio Climático de Naciones Unidas (IPCC) reveló esta madrugada la enorme y urgente tarea de limitar el calentamiento de la Tierra y proporcionar un plan claro para lograrlo. El Informe Especial del IPCC sobre 1,5 ºC alertó de que el calentamiento global superaría los 1,5 ºC entre 2030 y 2052 si continúan los ritmos actuales de emisiones de CO2. Por ello, las emisiones globales deben reducirse a la mitad para el año 2030, antes de disminuir a emisiones netas cero a más tardar a mediados de siglo. Greenpeace ha analizado las principales conclusiones de este informe.

“El mundo está en llamas. Para evitar más trágicos incendios, fenómenos meteorológicos extremos y pérdidas de vidas, debemos reducir a la mitad las emisiones mundiales en la próxima década. Este es un gran desafío, pero es factible y los costes de no seguir el camino correcto son una cuestión de vida o muerte para millones de personas, en particular quienes tienen menos recursos”, ha declarado Jennifer Morgan, directora ejecutiva de Greenpeace International.

Para alcanzar el objetivo de 1,5 ºC, el consumo mundial de carbón tendría que reducirse al menos en dos tercios para 2030 y caer hasta casi cero para 2050. El petróleo y el gas también tendrán que disminuir rápidamente. Un camino que no dependa de tecnologías de absorción de CO2 necesitaría que el uso de petróleo se redujera a la mitad para 2030 y el de gas en un tercio.

“Este es el informe de ciencia climática más singular e importante hasta la fecha. Los líderes gubernamentales y empresariales no tienen dónde esconderse y deben demostrar que entienden la ciencia actuando con la urgencia que exige. Pero todos tenemos un papel. Cada persona tiene que hacer todo lo que esté a su alcance para cambiar de rumbo y seguir el plan que se incluye en el informe del IPCC”, ha añadido Morgan.

Las soluciones climáticas naturales, como la protección de los bosques y la reforestación, tienen el potencial de proporcionar más de un tercio de la mitigación económicamente rentable de CO2 necesaria hasta 2030 para un objetivo de 2 ºC, lo que implica un alto potencial para 1,5 ºC también.

“¿Llegaremos a tiempo? Nadie lo sabe. Nos dirigimos a un territorio inexplorado. Lo que importa ahora es que decidamos intentarlo y lo convirtamos en nuestra prioridad absoluta. Sólo entonces tendremos la oportunidad de protegernos de los devastadores impactos que, según la ciencia, comenzarían a acelerarse después de 1,5 °C”, explica Morgan. Los que aseguran que no es realista nos están diciendo que abandonemos a la gente, a las especies, a nuestro asombroso planeta. No aceptaremos esto. Nunca nos daremos por vencidos”, ha declarado Kaisa Kosonen, asesora de políticas de la oficina nórdica de Greenpeace.

Respecto a la situación concreta en España, Greenpeace añade: “El Gobierno de España tiene que tomar buena nota del informe del IPCC y presentar una ley de cambio climático y transición energética que asegure que alcanzamos un sistema energético eficiente, inteligente y 100% renovable antes de 2050, empezando con el cierre de las centrales de carbón y nucleares en 2025”, ha declarado Tatiana Nuño, responsable de la campaña de cambio climático de Greenpeace España. “El paso dado de suprimir el impuesto al sol, que tiene que ratificar el Congreso, es una señal muy positiva para facilitar la participación de la sociedad en la transición energética a través del autoconsumo”.

El informe del IPCC se incorporará ahora directamente al Diálogo de Talanoa, que concluirá en las conversaciones anuales de la ONU en la Cumbre Internacional del Clima de este año (COP24) y guiará a los gobiernos para acelerar sus planes de acción contra el cambio climático.

Consideraciones específicas sobre el informe de 1,5 ºC

– A diferencia de la quinta revisión del IPCC sobre el cambio climático, se introduce una nueva definición del periodo pre-industrial que genera un incremento de la cantidad de gigatoneladas de dióxido de carbono equivalente (GtCO2eq) que de ser emitidas garantizarían un incremento de la temperatura global de 1,5 ºC. Esta cantidad es lo que se conoce como presupuesto de carbono.

– Los horizontes presentados por el IPCC con probabilidades inferiores al 66 % no son compatibles con limitar la temperatura global por debajo de 1,5 ºC o 2 ºC.

– Aquellos horizontes que plantean una superación puntual de la temperatura global no son válidos para el cumplimiento del Acuerdo de París. El artículo 2 de este acuerdo dice con claridad que el objetivo es evitar que se produzca un incremento de la temperatura superior a 2 ºC, sin ninguna excepción ni límite temporal.

– Aunque las emisiones acumuladas hasta el momento actual parece que no conllevarán necesariamente un incremento de la temperatura global de 1,5 ºC, el tiempo de actuar se agota. Se deben alcanzar las emisiones neutras en 2045-2055.

– Este incremento de temperatura está provocando y provocará en muchas regiones que los días de calor extremo suban el doble que la media de la temperatura global. Asimismo se prolongará la duración de las olas de calor. Una realidad que será más evidente en las latitudes tropicales e intertropicales.

– El documento final respecto a las consecuencias (punto B.3) elimina la mención sobre que la superación del límite de 1,5 ºC supondrá pérdidas y daños irreversibles incluso cuando seamos capaces de revertir ese "exceso de temperatura" en 2100.

– El informe deja patente el enorme coste de superar 1,5 ºC y establece que los riesgos se duplican si el incremento de la temperatura alcanza los 2ºC.

Entre estos riesgos debemos señalar:

1. Del 70 al 90 % de las barreras de coral se verán afectadas a 1,5 ºC de incremento de la temperatura, mientras que a los 2 ºC su desaparición parece asegurada.

2. Esta diferencia de 0,5 ºC es clave en los ecosistemas marinos. La acidificación y el calentamiento de los océanos resulta clave y muestra que a 2 ºC los riesgos se duplican. Por ejemplo, en las pesquerías, las pérdidas de capturas pasarán de 1,5 millones de toneladas en 1,5 ºC a los tres millones de toneladas en 2 ºC.

3. Otra de las cuestiones que han desaparecido del informe presentado en julio es que el incremento de la temperatura de 1,5 ºC a 2 ºC aumentará los riesgos sobre el agua y las inundaciones a 10 millones de personas.

4. Este incremento a 2 ºC respecto a 1,5 ºC aumentará en un 50 % el estrés hídrico de muchas regiones del planeta. El informe señala con claridad que una de las regiones más afectadas será la mediterránea. De hecho, en esta región este 0,5 ºC de diferencia puede marcar la diferencia entre la capacidad de adaptación o bien que se produzcan pérdidas irreversibles de importantes ecosistemas.

– Atendiendo al principio de precaución el presupuesto de carbono restante –es decir, la cantidad de emisiones que se pueden generar adicionales– es de solo 420 GtCO2 o de 570 GtCO2, dependiendo del modelo. Al ritmo de emisiones actuales (33 GtCO2/anuales) este

presupuesto llegará a cero de 12 a 18 años.

– Este presupuesto de carbono no contempla las emisiones adicionales que se producirían de forma natural como consecuencia del incremento de las temperaturas, como pueden ser las más de 100 GtCO2 debidas a la desaparición del permafrost.

– Uno de los problemas en la definición de los horizontes es que todos ellos sobrepasan de alguna forma las emisiones que garantizan un incremento de 1,5 ºC. De hecho, el horizonte de 1,5 ºC establece reducciones netas de emisiones a través de la fijación de emisiones por los sumideros. En este sentido establece que las soluciones tecnológicas de captura y almacenamiento de carbono presentan numerosas restricciones para ser considerados dentro de la sostenibilidad. Mientras la mejora del estado de conservación de los ecosistemas si puede resultar importante para esa reducción, pero solo hasta cierto punto.

– Entre las medidas se señala con claridad la introducción de energías renovables, el mejor manejo de residuos y ecosistemas y la necesaria reducción de la demanda de energía. A pesar de la mención, el informe obvia cuantificar con claridad cuál debería ser esa reducción de la demanda de energía necesaria.

– El informe establece con claridad que las técnicas de geoingeniería como el manejo de la radiación solar no se pueden considerar como medidas adecuadas, pues someterían a enormes riesgos adicionales sobre los ecosistemas y las sociedades.

– El informe afirma con claridad que los compromisos de los países son insuficientes, ya que de cumplirse con todos los compromisos establecidos las emisiones en 2030 ascenderían a 52-58 GtCO2, cuando sería necesario que en 2030 bajasen de 25 a 30 GtCO2.

– El último capítulo aborda esta diferencia entre 1,5 ºC y 2 ºC en el cumplimiento de los Objetivos para el Desarrollo Sostenible, y establece con claridad que todos los indicadores se agravan enormemente con un incremento global de 2 ºC de la temperatura. Lo que es especialmente importante para alcanzar la erradicación de la pobreza y el hambre, el acceso al agua potable a la energía, así como el incremento de conflictos relacionados con el uso de recursos.

– Unas transformaciones económicas, sociales y culturales que además muestran mayor capacidad de ser también herramientas para el desarrollo de muchas sociedades. De hecho, según el informe, la mayoría de los indicadores económicos son más favorables limitando el incremento de la temperatura global a 1,5 ºC frente a los 2 ºC.

En este sentido, los próximos pasos del informe deben ser:

1. Incorporar las conclusiones del informe en la próxima COP24, de forma que no superar el presupuesto de carbono asociado al 66 % de posibilidad de limitar el incremento de la temperatura global en 1,5 ºC.

2. La Unión Europea, respondiendo a sus propios comentarios sobre el informe, debe replantear toda su estrategia a largo plazo para alcanzar emisiones neutras en 2040.

3. Hay que establecer mecanismos para garantizar que se inicie de forma inmediata el descenso de las emisiones globales en un ritmo superior al 7 % anual.

          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.

          Comment on If SV really believes AI is an existential threat… by Mike      Cache   Translate Page      
I believe AI is a possible existential threat, but only over about a millennium or so of time. I'd say risk of runaway or "evil" AI is about 10% over the next thousand years, but far more toward the end of that period, if I had to guess. That makes it a minimal risk compared to the immediate and high risks of climate change and the presence of thousands of nuclear weapons on earth, and roughly equal to the threat of a civilization-destroying asteroid strike. So it's not something we should think about that much, other than for funsies. Climate change is the real existential risk worth fighting in our actual lifetimes. The rest is just a distraction, though an occasionally entertaining one.

It feels like you can't go two clicks without stumbling onto one of those today, so just to pick one example, here's the main PC Gamer article that brings us 30 minutes of fresh gameplay footage:

And here's an article straight from Bethesda with an overview of the game's features. An excerpt:

If you’re excited for Fallout 76, chances are you’ve spent quite a bit of time in Fallout 4, exploring the Commonwealth, establishing your settlements and just trying to survive in a harsh, post-nuclear world. You’ll still have all those options when you hop into Fallout 76, but you may notice a few things are a little different. Fallout 76 is the first time you’ll be able to explore the Wasteland with other players, and as such, some systems have been adapted to suit this exciting new adventure.

WORKSHOPS AND C.A.M.P.

The Workshop returns from Fallout 4 with a wide variety of structures and defenses to build using scavenged components, and new structures like Resource Collectors to mine veins of components found in the world.

One of the biggest additions for 76 is the C.A.M.P. (Construction and Assembly Mobile Platform), a personal Workshop you can place almost anywhere in the world and use as a home base as you explore, moving it from place to place for new Fast Travel and Respawn options. When you move your C.A.M.P., all your built structures are stored and Blueprinted just as you designed them so you can quickly rebuild, or create copies of your favorite structures. This way, if your settlement is nuked or raided by other players, you won’t have to worry about starting over from scratch.

Your C.A.M.P. allows you to access your Stash, a container for safe and permanent storage of things you want to keep. Your Stash can also be accessed at Stash containers found at Train Stations and Red Rocket Stations.

Fallout 76 also features Public Workshops that are unlocked through combat, either by clearing the area or contesting another player’s ownership. Public Workshops provide free building materials for crafting workbenches, mining resources, building defenses to repel creature attack events and enemy players, or to experiment with structures to create new Blueprints. Where your C.A.M.P. is yours and yours alone, a team of players can work together at the Public Workshops, building on what other players did before them.

SURVIVAL

Maintain yourself and your equipment for peak efficiency. Collect bonuses by staying Well Rested, Well Fed, Well Tuned and Hydrated, but be careful to avoid catching Diseases and Mutations in the process by avoiding radiation, sleeping in safe beds, eating cooked food, and drinking clean water. Your equipment breaks down with use, encouraging both the periodic repair of your favorite items as well as the motivation to try out new ones you find. All items have weight, including ammunition, so careful management of carry capacity becomes important. All these survival elements combine to provide a variety of gameplay decisions to find the right balance of what to collect, what to consume, and when.

PROGRESSION

In Fallout 76, the S.P.E.C.I.A.L. character system returns and all attributes start at 1. You can build your character as you level up by allocating points to your S.P.E.C.I.A.L. stats: Strength, Perception, Endurance, Charisma, Intelligence, Agility and Luck. You can allocate 1 point to a S.P.E.C.I.A.L. category with each level up until level 50. In addition to gameplay bonuses granted by increasing S.P.E.C.I.A.L. stats, each point can be used to equip a Perk card related to that category.

For example, the more points you have in Strength, the more Strength Perk cards you can equip. Perk cards can be equipped and unequipped at any time. You collect Perk cards by choosing one on each level up, and through randomized Perk Card packs that you earn at level up milestones. Perk cards feature returning favorites like Bloody Mess, and dozens of new Perks including new team-focused ones that utilize Charisma.

When you have duplicate Perk cards, you can even combine them to increase their level and the bonuses attached to them. These higher-level Perk cards will require more S.P.E.C.I.A.L. points, but it will be worth it for increasing important things like your First Aid skill or your ability to drink dirty Wasteland water.

Lo ha detto ieri all'Onu il leader dell'indipendenza polinesiana, Oscar Temaru. "Lo dobbiamo a tutti i morti delle conseguenze del colonialismo nucleare", ha aggiunto."Per noi i test francesi sono solo il risultato diretto della colonizzazione...

          Shunned By Democrats, Clintons Plan Post-Midterms Speaking Tour; Tickets Priced Up To $750      Cache   Translate Page      

Bill and Hillary Clinton, who have kindly been asked by fellow Democrats to make themselves scarce during midterms, will embark on a 13-city speaking tour beginning in Las Vegas on November 18, according to Bloomberg.

Tickets won't be cheap either - with prices for the first show ranging from around $72 to $750 on ticketmaster to watch the prototypical American power couple "sharing stories and inspiring anecdotes that shaped their historic careers in public service, while also discussing issues of the day and looking towards the future," according to an announcement from Live Nation. 

Bloomberg points out that the new speaking tour is likely to stoke criticism over the Clintons leveraging their political fame to give expensive speaking tours - including an infamous $500,000 speech to a Kremlin-linked investment bank amid the Uranium One deal (a trip during which Clinton and Putin hung out at the Russian president's house). 

The tour and ticket prices could reignite criticism of the former first couple for profiting from their former offices. During the 2016 campaign, Republicans blasted Hillary Clinton for giving highly paid speeches to corporate audiences after leaving public service.

Indeed, the Clinton tour follows two years of declining popularity - between Hillary Clinton's historic 2016 loss to Donald Trump, and Bill Clinton's old rape allegations cropping up amid the #MeToo phenomenon. 

Vanity Fair writes "The Trump era has not been kind to the Clintons, the prototypical American power couple who, after three decades in the public eye, have seen their political capital vastly diminished. Hillary, indelibly marked by her 2016 election loss, has played only a limited role in the midterms, given the Democratic Party’s newfound aversion to her brand of establishment politics. Bill, meanwhile, has undergone a belated reckoning with #MeToo." 

[T]he issue of Hillary’s “likability”—as Barack Obama so memorably put it—is now secondary to the #MeToo scandals hanging over Bill, and the awkward questions she has been forced to address. In a recent interview with CNN, she drew a painstaking line between Bill and the numerous allegations of sexual misconduct against the current president, noting, “There’s a very significant difference, and that is the intense, long-lasting, partisan investigation that was conducted in the 90s. If the Republicans, starting with President Trump on down, want a comparison, they should welcome such an investigation themselves.” That answer may be sufficient for the dwindling number of hardcore Clinton fans, but it is unlikely to win converts. -Vanity Fair

Tickets for the Clinton tour go on sale Friday. It should be fun to compare crowd sizes between Trump rallies and Clinton appearances.

Billy Graham’s death on 21 February, 2018, unleashed a flood of commentary on his life and legacy, much of it positive, some of it sharply negative. Both the length of his career and the historical moment at which he died contributed to the complexity of this discussion. His views on many subjects, including nuclear proliferation, the environment, global humanitarianism, and women’s ordination, changed over time.

De derde speler is Israel. In de volgende link is er een mooie foto met Bibi en XI !! https://www.henrymakow.com/2016/04/are-the-tiao-kiu-kao-jews.html met titel : “Are the "Tiao-Kiu-Kao"(TKK) Jews Running China?” Recent overhandigde Israël nog de sleutels van de haven van Haïfa aan China : https://www.haaretz.com/us-news/.premium-israel-is-giving-china-the-keys-to-its-largest-port-and-the-u-s-navy-may-abandon-israel-1.6470527 met de veelzeggende titel : “Israel Is Giving China the Keys to Its Largest Port – and the U.S. Navy May Abandon Israel China will operate Haifa port, near Israel's alleged nuclear-armed submarines, and it seems no one in Israel thought about the strategic ramifications “ (=einde titel). Nog een “samenwerking” tussen Israël en China : https://www.veteranstoday.com/2018/09/21/pravda-how-israel-built-chinas-air-force-with-stolen-american-tech/ met citaat : “In the 1980s, the United States cooperated with Israel in the development of a new combat aircraft based on General Dynamics F-16. The cost of creating a new aircraft was constantly growing, and the US eventually withdrew from the deal, leaving the Israeli Lavi fighter unfinished. Years later, the Americans discovered that Israel had sold plans to develop Lavi to China, granting China unprecedented access to technologies that were originally developed for the F-16.”(=einde citaat). Dus als Pence zoals gezegd , problemen heeft met China, kan hij ook eens gaan kijken in Tel Aviv!!! En moest het dus niet lukken in New York en Tel Aviv, kan Pence naar The City gaan https://wideawakegentile.wordpress.com/2015/07/23/rothschilds-boc-and-400-chinese-billionaires/ met citaat : “In Sept 2008 Bank of China (“BOC”) and La Compagnie Financière Edmond de Rothschild “LCFR” signed a long-term strategic investment and business cooperation agreement covering private banking and asset management businesses . Pursuant to the agreement, BOC acquired a 20% stake in LCFR.”(=einde citaat). Met de voormelde voorbeelden voor ogen , lees ik in de toespraak van Pence heel wat zaken maar wat echt van belang is, staat er niet in. En het ontbrekende is imo juist het gevaar.

Desde que llegó a mis manos el juego Blake Stone, una pequeña joya del 93 que venía a replicar el éxito de Wolfenstein 3D pero quedó en un segundo plano tras el éxito de Doom, mi pasión por los shooters nunca ha decaído. Recuerdo los vicios de aquella época a Rise of the Triad, Heretic y un buen puñado de juegos más de la era DOS y cómo poco a poco fueron formando mi pasión por el género.

Ahora el mundo de los FPS es completamente distinto, pero resulta curioso ver cómo muchas de las grandes ideas que allí se postulaban han ido manteniéndose en el tiempo. Aquellos títulos marcaron el camino de lo que años después sería un bu
