          Sarfraz determined to break New Zealand jinx       Cache   Translate Page      

Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed insists his team can end an 11-match losing run to New Zealand when the two sides meet in the first one-day international in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday.

Pakistan crushed New Zealand 3-0 in the preceding Twenty20 series on Sunday — their second whitewash in a week following a romp over Australia, also in Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

But Sarfraz, part of the team in the last 11 one-day internationals all of which Pakistan lost, wants to finally win against New Zealand.

“It's important to break that losing streak and we need to bring improvement in our performance in one-day internationals,” said Sarfraz on Tuesday.

Pakistan lost the last two matches in a 3-2 series defeat in United Arab Emirates (UAE) in 2014, before losing 2-0 in 2015, 2-0 in 2016 and 5-0 in January 2018 — all in New Zealand.

“If you look at our losses most of them were in New Zealand where conditions were different and we lost due to top order failure where we need to improve,” said Sarfraz.

Pakistan also failed to qualify for the final of the Asia Cup held in UAE two months ago, losing both their matches against arch-rivals India and going down to Bangladesh in a clash which decided the finalist.

India won the Asia Cup by beating Bangladesh.

Sarfraz said a tough opponent in New Zealand — ranked third to Pakistan's fifth in one-day standings — will help the team build for next year's World Cup in England.

“New Zealand is a good team of this format but we have momentum of the Twenty20 series so we must win this series and that will help towards building towards the World Cup,” said Sarfraz.

The last two matches are in Abu Dhabi (Friday) and in Dubai (Sunday).

Pakistan then play South Africa in South Africa, Australia (in UAE) and England in England -- five one-day internationals each — before the World Cup.

New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson played down the winning streak against Pakistan, saying it will be a new series.

“It's a new series and a fresh start,” said Williamson. “I guess it's a nice statistic to have but at the end of the day, come tomorrow, its a new series.” Williamson praised Pakistan as a limited over side.

“They are always a strong side and no matter the format,” said Williamson. “They have a lot of depth. We simply know they have been here for some time and they know these conditions and they have had lots of success. We are in here for a tough battle.”

New Zealand will welcome pace spearhead Trent Boult who missed the Twenty20 series due to personal reasons while also adding batsman George Worker and spinner Ajaz Patel (as a cover for injured Todd Astle) in the squad.

Teams

New Zealand: Kane Williamson (captain), Todd Astle, Trent Boult, Colin de Grandhomme, Lockie Ferguson, Matt Henry, Tom Latham, Colin Munro, Henry Nicholls, Ajaz Patel, Ish Sodhi, Tim Southee, Ross Taylor, BJ Watling, George Worker

Pakistan: Sarfraz Ahmed (capt), Fakhar Zaman, Imam-ul-Haq, Mohammad Hafeez, Babar Azam, Shoaib Malik, Asif Ali, Haris Sohail, Shadab Khan, Faheem Ashraf, Imad Wasim, Hasan Ali, Junaid Khan, Shaheen Afridi, Usman Khan Shinwari

          Why Not Vote? Anarchists and Libertarians Weigh In      Cache   Translate Page      
Conscientious non-voters have many reasons for not voting. Don't listen to them. by Katie Herzog
GettyImages-1058207668.jpg
David Becker/Getty Images

You'd think after nearly 250 years we'd have this voting thing down by now, yet all across the country Americans are once again marking Election Day by waiting in long-ass lines. (Except, that is, for the three enlightened states that have adopted vote-by-mail, which, coincidentally, were also the first three states to legalize weed.)

Voter participation is expected to be record high this week, but voting rates in the U.S. are still abysmally low compared to many countries. Australia, where voting is mandatory, ranks at the top of the heap, followed by Malta, Chile, Belgium, Italy, and Luxembourg, all of which have a voter turnout of over 90 percent. On the lower end, you have Russia, Switzerland, Pakistan, and the United States, where, on a good year, only around 60 percent of eligible voters show up. Why doesn’t nearly half the popular vote? I suspect it's because most people just don't give a shit and their stories are on. If you asked this apathetic portion of the populace who the Attorney General is, I’m guessing they'd say, "What army?" But there's also a population of people who do give a fuck but who still opt not to participate in this particular part of the civic process: conscientious non-voters.

For some conscientious non-voters, it all comes down to who's running. A 53-year-old home-builder who is primarily concerned about government spending (and who benefits from it) told me that he will "vote again when we have a viable third party that values freedom for all, not just the ones whose ideas they favor but especially for those who have ideas they despise." He will not, he added, "vote again until I see politicians that understand and prioritize spending within our means."

I also spoke with a 28-year-old conservative who told me that he was so disappointed in Obama's victories in 2008 and 2012 that the prospect of getting invested and losing again just isn't worth it. Another non-voter, an anarchist and philosophy PhD student, said that voting is damaging because it allows people to "focus on policy and what people in power do instead of what they can do themselves." When I asked what the public should do about policies they disagree with—for example, separating and imprisoning immigrant families—he advocated for direct action like assisting immigrants at border crossings instead. "Voting does matter in the aggregate," he said, "but it doesn't matter if you are talking about the individual.”

This point—that individual votes don't matter—is also made by Katherine Mangu-Ward, the editor-in-chief of Reason, the libertarian magazine based in Washington, D.C. For her, it all comes down to numbers. "You are very, very, very, very, very, very unlikely to be a decisive vote," Katherine said. "Your vote turning the outcome of an election is vanishingly rare, whereas, there are all kinds of things you can do with the hour or two hours of your time that it takes you to vote that are objectively, clearly good."

When I asked Katherine if voting took less time—if she could, say, vote-by-mail, which takes about as much time as walking to your mailbox—she would still feel it’s a waste of time, she said that there are other, more affirmative arguments against voting. "If you think the system is basically corrupt or broken, I think there's a very strong case to make that you actually have a duty not to vote."

On that, we disagree. Democracy isn't inherently corrupt. It's corrupt when the people running it are corrupt, and one of the only means of swaying who is steering the ship is to show up and vote. Sure, your individual vote might not change the outcome of an election, but as Kant would argue, if everyone failed to vote, the system itself would fail. For some non-voters (for instance, the anarchist philosophy student), that may be the goal, but Katherine says she's not in favor of the collapse of the system as we know it. Rather, she prefers to participate in the system in other ways, including calling her elected representatives.

Still, I'm not convinced. Sure, calling your representative is one way to be heard, but if your representative is, say, a rabid, God-fearing, conservative who thinks non-Christians should burn on Earth and will burn in hell, he's probably not going to listen when you call up and demand he vote in favor of access to abortion. Same if you're represented by a member of the DSA and you've got a complaint about tax rates on the rich. So what can you, as an individual, actually do? Show up to vote. Your particular vote might not change the election, but the collective vote does, and the collective is just a bunch of individuals taking action.

Now, I understand why people don't trust the system. Just look at recent history, namely the 2000 and 2016 presidential elections, both of which were ultimately won by the person who got fewer votes. But the only way to correct the system is to elect candidates who will at least try and fix it—and right now, there's only one party in the running that is even remotely interested in that. The other side is busy starting trade wars and locking up children. When the stakes are this high, when the chance to curb Donald Trump comes down to our ballots, I don’t see how not voting can be morally justified—unless, that is, you vote Republican. In that case: Listen to Katherine.

The Last Ship is part of the 2018/19 Mirvish Subscription Season.

The Last Ship, which was initially inspired by Sting's 1991 album The Soul Cages and his own childhood experiences, tells the story of a community amid the demise of the shipbuilding industry in Tyne and Wear, with the closure of the Swan Hunter shipyard.

When a sailor named Gideon Fletcher returns home after seventeen years at sea, tensions between past and future flare in both his family and his town. The local shipyard, around which the community has always revolved, is closing and no-one knows what will come next, only that a half-built ship towers over the terraces. With the engine fired and pistons in motion, picket lines are drawn as foreman Jackie White and his wife Peggy fight to hold their community together in the face of the gathering storm.

This personal, political and passionate new musical from multiple Grammy Award winner Sting, is an epic account of a family, a community and a great act of defiance. The Last Ship features an original score with music and lyrics by Sting as well as a few of his best-loved songs; Island of Souls, All This Timeand When We Dance. It is the proud story of when the last ship sails.

The show is directed by Lorne Campbell, the artistic director of Northern Stage and has set design by the Tony Award-winning 59 Productions- team behind the video design for the 2012 London Olympic Games.

The Last Ship has a new book by Lorne Campbell, original book by John Logan and Brian Yorkey, orchestrations by Rob Mathes, musical direction by Richard John, costume design by Molly Einchcomb, movement direction by Lucy Hind, lighting design by Matt Daw and sound design by Seb Frost. Other members of the creative team are dramaturg Selma Dimitrijevic, associate director Jake Smith, casting director Jenkins McShane Casting and associate musical director Sam Sommerfeld.

The Last Ship is produced by Karl Sydow and Kathryn Schenker.

Sting was born Gordon Matthew Sumner on 2 October, 1951 in Wallsend, North Tyneside, Tyne and Wear, England, the eldest of four children of Audrey (Cowell), a hairdresser, and Ernest Matthew Sumner, an engineer and milkman.


He grew up in the turmoil of the ship-building industry and wanted to become a musician very early having developed a love for the bass guitar. He played in jazz/rock bands such as "The Last Exit" and other various outfits, including a Dixieland jazz group, and in 1977, he formed the rock trio, The Police with Stewart Copeland and Andy Summers.

In 1984, he went on to record solo albums, and has evolved in to one of the most prolific songwriters and musicians in the world. His latest album, 57th & 9th, was released in November, 2016 followed by the critically-acclaimed 57th& 9thWorld Tour which recently concluded having performed 115 concerts throughout North America, Asia, Latin America & Europe. Hailed "the show of a lifetime" (The Vancouver Globe & Mail), Sting: Live at The Olympia Paris will be released November 10 on DVD and captures the musician's guitar-driven rock tour as it hit the French capital at the iconic venue in April, 2017.

Throughout his illustrious career, Sting has sold close to 100 million albums from his combined work with The Police and as a solo artist. He has also delved into acting, having appeared in over 15 films such as Quadrophenia (1979) and Bring on the Night (1984) and has published a memoir entitled Broken Music in 2003, which spent 13 weeks on The New York Times Best Sellers list. He has received honorary Doctorate of Music degrees from Northumbria University in October 1992, Berklee College of Music in May 1994 and from the University of Newcastle upon Tyne in 2006.

Karl Sydow has produced Dirty Dancing, the Classic Story Live on Stage across the UK for the past 11 years.

Other credits in the UK include Sinatra: The Man and His Music directed by David Gilmore, Backbeat directed by David Leveaux; Dish of Tea With Dr Johnson directed by Max Stafford-Clark; Tritych by Edna O'Brien; Memory directed by Terry Hands; The Line directed by Matthew Lloyd and Jen?fa directed by Irina Brown, both written by Timberlake Wertenbaker (Arcola); Ring Round the Moon directed by Sean Mathias (Playhouse); Dirty Dancing: The Classic Story on Stage (Piccadilly, Aldwych, UK tour, Germany, France, Australia and Italy); the spectacular multimedia production Sinatra at the London Palladium directed by David Leveaux with choreography by Stephen Mear; And Then There Were None with Tara Fitzgerald (Gielgud); the London and Sydney production of Dance of Death with Sir Ian McKellen, Frances de la Tour and Owen Teale; Bea Arthur (Savoy); Auntie and Me with Alan Davies and Margaret Tyzack (Wyndham's); Michael Moore,Live!

In North America he has produced Backbeat (Royal Alexandra, Toronto and Ahmanson, Los Angeles) directed by David Leveaux with international tours includingThe Last Confession with David Suchet; the centennial production of Under Milk Wood; and the Out of Joint revival of Our Country's Good.

In 2018, Karl has produced Alan Ayckbourn's The Divide with The Old Vic and Edinburgh International Festival and David Hare's The Moderate Soprano at the Duke of York's.

Kathryn Schenker was Sting's longtime manager and has more than 30 years' experience in the entertainment business.

She was the lead producer of the Broadway production of The Last Ship.

          AUSTRAC reaps "enforcement dividend" during bank reporting season      Cache   Translate Page      
The impact of AUSTRAC's heightened enforcement presence has continued to reverberate through the Australian financial sector during this month's bank reporting season. Westpac Banking Corporation revealed on Monday that it was working with the financial intelligence agency to resolve a "large number" of transaction reporting breaches. The breaches are largely technical and do not involve any missing suspicious matter reports (SMRs), the bank said. The announcement in Westpac's full-year results means three of the country's "four pillar" banks are engaged in financial crime compliance remediation programs. ANZ Banking Group is the only major Australian bank that did not disclose anti-money laundering and counter-terrorism financing (AML/CTF) failures in this year's results. Commonwealth Bank is continuing to undertake extensive remediation following its A$700 million civil litigation, which it settled with the Australian Transaction Reports and Analysis Centre (AUSTRAC) in June.

           Comment on Drilling to begin at UK’s first geothermal power plant by Graeme No.3       Cache   Translate Page      
190℃ is a low temperature for electricity generation. Low efficiency usually means higher cost electricity. As for continuous operation, have they checked the actual history of geothermal stations? Those in NZ have had to be throttled back as too much extraction leaves the rocks cooler, and they have to drill new holes regularly. In Australia the attempt at geothermal energy collapsed because of the amount of 'gunk' getting into the working fluid. Salts dissolved from the granite at high temperatures becoming insoluble at lower temperatures. And lastly, the heat in granite rocks comes partly from uranium (don't tell the Greenies).

          Ewing Sarcoma Treatment Market to Witness Comprehensive Growth by 2025      Cache   Translate Page      

Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/06/2018 -- Ewing sarcoma is a destructive sarcoma of the soft tissue and the bones, which can occur at any age with the maximum rate of incidence recorded in young adults and adolescents. The treatment of Ewing sarcoma depends on multiple approaches, including risk-adapted, intensive, adjuvant and neo-adjuvant chemotherapies with radiotherapy and/or surgery for control of the possible metastatic and primary sites of the disease.

The optimization of Ewing sarcoma multiple modalities of therapeutic strategies has rose from efforts of numerous national and international groups in North America and Europe to form cooperation between medical oncologists and pediatrics. Ewing sarcoma is the second most frequently diagnosed form of primary bone cancer in children and young adults. The disease can occur in any individual at any age, but it is uncommon in people aged over 30 years. It develops most commonly in individuals aged between 10 and 20 years, who are witnessing rapid growth of bones.

Obtain Report Details @ https://www.transparencymarketresearch.com/ewing-sarcoma-treatment-market.html

Increasing incidence of Ewing sarcoma worldwide and initiatives taken by government organizations to reduce the rate of morbidity caused by Ewing sarcoma are factors driving the Ewing sarcoma treatment market. Currently, no approved treatments are available for Ewing sarcoma. This has led to increase in research and development activities to launch an approved treatment for Ewing sarcoma by leading players.

The global market for Ewing sarcoma treatment can be segmented based on type, diagnostic test, treatment, end-user, and geography. Based on type, the market has been categorized into extra osseous Ewing sarcoma, Askin tumor, and primitive neuroectodermal tumor. Extra osseous Ewing sarcoma is related with tumor in soft tissue, while Askin tumor is related with Ewing sarcoma that appears in the chest wall.

Primitive neuroectodermal tumor is related with Ewing sarcoma wherein cells looks like nerve cells. Based on diagnostic test, the Ewing sarcoma treatment market has been segmented into CT scan, MRI scan, biopsy of the bone marrow, and blood tests. Based on treatment, the market has been divided into chemotherapy, surgery, and radiotherapy. Based on end-user, the Ewing sarcoma treatment market has been classified into hospitals, cancer treating centers, and specialty clinics.

Request Report Brochure @ https://www.transparencymarketresearch.com/sample/sample.php?flag=B&rep_id=37700

Based on geography, the global Ewing sarcoma treatment market can be segmented into five major regions: North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. Furthermore, the North America Ewing Sarcoma treatment market has been sub-segmented into U.S. and Canada. The Ewing sarcoma treatment market in Europe has been sub-divided into Germany, U.K., France, Spain, Italy, and Rest of Europe. The Ewing sarcoma treatment market in Asia Pacific has been sub-segmented into China, Japan, India, Australia & New Zealand, and Rest of Asia Pacific.

The Latin America Ewing sarcoma treatment market has been sub-divided into Brazil, Mexico, and Rest of Latin America. The Ewing sarcoma treatment market in Middle East & Africa has been sub-segmented into GCC, South Africa, Israel, and Rest of Middle East & Africa. North America dominates the global Ewing sarcoma treatment market, followed by Europe. Key factors driving the market in these two regions are growing awareness about Ewing Sarcoma amongst adults and availability of sophisticated and technologically advanced treatment options in these regions. The rate of incidence of Ewing sarcoma is lower in Asia and Africa.

Request for TOC @ https://www.transparencymarketresearch.com/sample/sample.php?flag=T&rep_id=37700

          Klokkenluider Joris (4) viert einde van zijn leukemiebehandeling      Cache   Translate Page      
UTRECHT - De vierjarige Joris Haspels heeft vanmiddag een klok geluid als symbool voor het einde van zijn leukemiebehandeling in het Utrechtse Prinses Máxima Centrum (PMC). Hij leed twee jaar lang aan de ziekte en werd sinds de opening van het ziekenhuis deze zomer in Utrecht behandeld.

Vandaag kreeg Joris zijn laatste behandelingen. Daarna ging hij rond 16.30 uur samen met zijn ouders en vrienden de muziekkidsstudio van het PMC binnen. Daar is de klok neergezet. "We gaan daar muziek maken. Joris vindt het lekker om mee te schudden op de muziek en met de knopjes van de dj-set te spelen", vertelt moeder Paulien Haspels.

Het idee van 'ring the bell' komt uit Engeland, Australië en Amerika waar kinderen die van kanker genazen al langer een klok laten klinken, om een nieuwe fase van hun leven in te luiden. "Als je hoort dat je kind leukemie heeft, kom je in een andere wereld terecht. Dat is spannend en voel je je angstig. Zo'n moment van genezing mag dan echt gemarkeerd worden."

Paulien en haar man Jurjen hadden al vrij snel de behoefte om het ziekenhuis te bedanken. Ze vroegen de grootste klokkengieterij ter wereld, die in het Brabantse Asten staat, de klok te maken. De maker raakte ontroerd na Joris' verhaal en goot de klok gratis in elkaar.

De klok blijft in het PMC staan. "De klank moet ook hoop geven aan andere kinderen te geven om zo een nieuwe start te markeren."

          Corré al cine      Cache   Translate Page      

El Buenos Aires Running Film Festival (BARunFF), el primer festival competitivo de cine de running de Argentina y Latinoamérica, comenzó en nuestro país este lunes y se extenderá hasta el miércoles en Village Cines. El running es protagonista, con la exhibición de maravillosas historias en formato de cortometrajes y largometrajes.

El BARunFF busca unir cultura y deporte, y crea un nuevo espacio de difusión para films que promueven valores como el esfuerzo, la superación personal, el logro, la amistad, la vida sana, el deporte y la conexión con el medio ambiente.

El programa cuenta con cortometrajes y largometrajes de Estados Unidos, Canadá, Inglaterra, Chile, Escocia, Polonia y Argentina, un total de 18 piezas que se proyectarán durante los tres días.

Algunos de los films destacados de esta competencia son: “Run free–The true story of Caballo Blanco”, sobre la leyenda americana del hombre conocido como “caballo blanco” que creó una carrera para preservar la tradición deportiva de los indios Tarahumara; “Life on the fells”, cuenta la historia del ultracorredor Adam Briggs, a quien ni su trasplante de corazón ni sus más de 60 cirugías han podido alejarlo de su pasión. También el premiado documental “Running the 184”, en el que varios corredores, entre ellos el ultramaratonista Jeff Galloway, vencen sus limitaciones físicas logrando inspirar a otros a tener una vida más sana.

El BARunFF es uno de los tres únicos festivales dedicados al cine Running en todo el mundo: los otros dos son en Seattle (Estados Unidos) y Sidney (Australia), lo que lo convierte en el único de su tipo en Latinoamérica.

El Jurado está integrado por el corredor y periodista Daniel Arcucci, el economista Martín Tetaz, el actor Christian Sancho, la influencer runner Florencia Zimmerman, el DJ Tommy Muñoz, y el corredor ultramaratonista Juan Martín Saab.

Las entradas al BARunff pueden adquirirse en www.villagecines.com.ar

          Resumen del Mundial de Overwatch      Cache   Translate Page      

El Mundial de Overwatch comenzó este verano y las finales se disputaron hace escasos días durante la celebración de la BlizzCon 2018, en el Blizzard Arena Los Ángeles de Burbank, California. Los cuartos de final enfrentaron a Reino Unido contra Estados Unidos, a China contra Finlandia, a Australia contra Corea del Sur y a Francia contra Canadá.

Estados Unidos y Canadá partían como las favoritas para enfrentarse a Corea del Sur -o al menos entre ellas-, pero el agresivo juego de Reino Unido acabó descalificando a Estados Unidos en cuartos. Si bien jugadores como Cameron "Fusions" Bosworth tuvieron un papel destacado, lo cierto es que la coordinación del equipo hizo que se impusieran sobre su rival. La composición usada, con algunas variaciones, que más destacado ha sido la conocida como GOATS. Esta composición de héroes, llamada así por el equipo del mismo nombre que la popularizó, consta de tres sanadores y tres tanques. Estos héroes son normalmente Brigitte, Zarya, Reinhardt, Lúcio, Moira y D.Va.

Esta composición también la utilizaron contra Corea del Sur, pero a lo largo del partido fueron cambiando, adaptándose los unos a los otros. Corea del Sur venció 3-0 previamente a Australia, en un partido en el que se impusieron rápidamente gracias al uso de tácticas para aislar y acabar rápidamente con los sanadores o tanques del equipo contrario.

Tackles are a pretty important element of any rugby match, and if you get it wrong, you could injure your opponent pretty badly.
This weekend, in a narrow victory for England over the Spingboks in London, the former’s Owen Farrell landed a controversial tackle on the Springbok’s André Esterhuizen in the dying minutes of the game.
Esterhuizen was knocked to the ground, England recovered the ball, and then kicked it into touch, ending the match 12-11 in its favour.
And while the Springboks asked the Australian referee Angus Gardner to review his decision, he found no fault.
So of course it would be hilarious when [...]

O ex-jogador de rúgbi Sam Ballard, de 28 anos, morreu na última sexta-feira (2), em Sidney, na Austrália, por conta de um verme que contraiu há oito anos, após cumprir uma aposta que fez com amigos e comer uma lesma. Durante este período, o parasita deixou o corpo do esportista quase totalmente paralisado.

Segundo depoimentos dados à época, Ballard e amigos bebiam vinho quando viram uma lesma passar pelo chão do terraço onde estavam. O ex-jogador, que tinha 19 anos, aceitou a provocação dos companheiros e engoliu o animal vivo.

Como conta o 'G1', Ballard começou a ter dores nas pernas dias depois do incidente. Com suspeita de esclerose múltipla, doença que o pai do rapaz teve, a família procurou um medico.

No entanto, o diagnóstico mostrou que Ballard tinha meningite eosinofílica, doença causada pelo verme Angiostrongylus cantonensis. Lesmas e caramujos são hospedeiros naturais desse parasita.

Na maioria dos casos, a meningite eosinofílica não gera complicações, mas com Ballard foi diferente. Ele ficou em coma por 420 dias e, quando acordou, estava com quase todo o corpo paralisado.

A história teve grande repercussão nos meios de comunicação australianos e comoção popular. Os amigos que incentivaram Ballard a comer o molusco foram perdoados por ele e continuaram a fazer parte do dia-a-dia do ex-jogador.

O funeral de Ballard está marcado para esta quinta-feira (8).

          EUR / USD: Eurozone data indicates a likely slowdown in economic growth in the 4th quarter of this year.      Cache   Translate Page      

Data released in the first half of the day in the euro area, put pressure on the European currency, which did not allow traders to resume an upward trend in risky assets. The data indicates a high probability that the eurozone economy will again begin to show a slowdown in the 4th quarter of this year after the rise observed in the 2nd and 3rd quarters.

According to the report of the Federal Statistics Agency, orders in the manufacturing sector of Germany grew slightly in September of this year compared with August. The increase was due to higher domestic demand. However, a sharp decline was observed from countries outside the monetary union.

Basic data

According to the data, orders in the manufacturing sector as a whole rose by 0.3% after rising 2.5% in August. Economists had expected orders in September to fall by 0.6% altogether. As I noted above, domestic orders in September rose by 2.8%, while demand from non-eurozone countries dropped by 3.7% at once. Compared to the same period of 2017, orders decreased by 2.2%.

The data on activity in the Eurozone services sector also failed to support the euro. A sharp decline in Germany and Italy led to a fall in the overall index in the eurozone.

According to the report, the PMI Purchasing Managers Index for Germany in October of this year showed a slowdown in growth and amounted to 54.7 points against 55.9 points in September. Economists had forecast that PMI for Germany's service sector would be at 53.6 points.

In Italy, the activity in the services sector also fell sharply. According to Markit, the PMI Purchasing Managers Index fell below 50 points, indicating a decline in activity. The report indicates that in October it was 49.2 points against 53.3 points in September.

The activity in the Eurozone services sector in October turned out to be slightly higher than expected, but there is little to be happy about. According to IHS Markit, the PMI Purchasing Managers Index for the Eurozone services sector in October 2018 was 53.7 points against 54.7 points in September of this year. Growth in business activity at such a slow pace could lead to a possible slowdown in economic growth in the 4th quarter.

As for the technical picture of the EUR / USD currency pair, it remained almost unchanged. The breakthrough of the resistance level of 1.1420 will strengthen the presence of euro buyers, which will lead to the resumption of an uptrend with the updating of the resistance levels of 1.1450 and 1.1480. In the case of a decline below the support level of 1.1390, the pressure on the euro may increase significantly, which will lead to a larger downward trend with a return to the lows of last month in the area of 1.1300.

The Australian dollar ignored the decision of the Reserve Bank of Australia, which kept interest rates unchanged at 1.5%, where it has been located for more than two years.

The RBA said that low interest rates still support the economy, and maintaining rates at the same level will correspond to stable GDP growth rates. Also, the current level of interest rates will allow over time to reach the target level of inflation.

The RBA believes that the prospects for the labor market remain positive, and they expect unemployment to decline to about 4.75% in 2020.

Economists of the bank revised their forecasts for GDP growth in 2018–2019 upwards to 3.5%.

          How to Write a Marketing Email      Cache   Translate Page      
Email writing is one of the most essential, most vital yet most commonly overlooked aspects of the restaurant business. Whether you’re writing to other companies, customers, clients, partners or to internal employees, the way you craft and compose your emails has a significant effect on how people perceive you and your business. Even with slight changes to the way you write, you can revolutionise the way you get your messages across, the way you communicate with people and the way you sell your products and services.

One of the most important emails you will compose is a marketing email. It doesn’t matter whether you’re midway through a campaign or just trying out new ideas on how to draw in leads and new customers, the way you write and compose your emails will be the make or break factor for your success. To give you a helping hand, today we’ll explore the best ways to write a marketing email, enabling you to maximise your opportunities.

Be Personal

One of the best ways to connect with the people you’re trying to sell to is to remain personal at all times. This means to stop referring to your clients as readers, followers, subscribers or any other collective term you may use. Make it direct and compose your emails as though you’re writing to just them. Additionally, refer to yourself using the name in your email address. This makes you a lot more reputable and makes it feel like the reader is talking to another human being, rather than a business or organisation.

Provide Benefits

Nobody wants to read something that won’t benefit them in some way or another. It may seem selfish but why would people use up their valuable time reading something that makes no difference in their lives. “Whatever it is you’re talking about and whatever food industry you’re representing, always ensure that there’s something in the email that the reader can take away and learn from. Alternatively, to lock in those sales, you could even provide discount codes to your service. Even if you’re offering a 5% discount, people respond to this as they believe they are getting a good deal,” suggests Anna Mills, an email marketer at Coursework Writing Service.

Encourage Opens

Getting people to open your emails is one of the hardest aspects of email marketing. Many users will have emails coming in from all sorts of restaurants and third parties that they have signed up to over the years so it can be difficult to make yours stand out from the crowd. The best way to draw people in is to write a captivating and engaging subject line that they can’t resist. One of the best techniques of psychology to use is FOMO. This stands for Fear of Missing Out, and it’s the same concept that makes social media so addictive. Create subject lines that will make the user feel like they're missing something out of their lives if they don’t open your emails.

Short, Sweet & Precise

Email writing is exceptionally similar to writing content for your website. You want to ensure that your emails are well laid out and have a good sense of structure. Also, emails should be proofread, it can be done with the help of services like BigAssignments and Paperfellows. Some good rules of thumb to remember is to keep paragraphs between 100-150 words and include one main topic per paragraph. This will dramatically increase readability and gives users the information they want in a concise space of time. Another great technique to use is to include bullet points and subheadings.

Research Your Target Market

The best way for you to connect with your potential clients is to know them inside and out. For example, if you’re representing a running product company, you need to be inside the heads of runners. What do they look for? What are they thinking about? What are they looking at their inboxes for? With this information in your mind, you can create the perfect emails that will engage their minds and entice them into the opening and reading your emails. Put yourself in their position.

Choosing the Right Language

Whether you’re writing the subject line or the email content itself, the language you use is imperative and is another make or break consideration to the success of your emails. Using power words is very important as it will help you to create mental imagery that your readers will be able to relate to. Create a picture in the minds of your readers using words of what you’re trying to say, very similar to a story. Directive language, popularly used in calls to action are also beneficial. Using phrases such as; call now, download, read, click and reply are all very useful in making readers do what you want them to do.

Engage, Engage, Engage

“This is the most important aspect of email marketing and writing. If your readers are not engaged with your content, you’ve failed in what you set out to do. There is a vast amount of techniques you can use to achieve this goal. Writing fast, as fast as you can, can help you to add personality to your content and will help you to portray a certain level of enthusiasm,” says Daniel Semio, a content manager at OXEssays and EliteAssignmentHelp. Asking your clients’ questions will also help to settle into their minds and will help you to provoke thoughts. Consequently, they’ll be drawn into wanting to know more about what you have to say, won’t they?

As mentioned above, be direct with your clients. Refer to them as ‘you’ or ‘we’. This adds a personal touch as well as a sense of belonging, ideal for making them feel part of your business.

Define Your Purpose

Finally, one of the most significant aspects of email writing you should always remember to maximise effectiveness. Define the purpose of your email, even before you start writing. If you’re trying to get people to come to your restaurant, create your emails with this in mind. After you have finished writing, refer to your purpose to ensure your writing will have the desired effect. With the goal clear in your mind at all times, you can be sure that you are writing to this guideline, rather than endlessly typing while trying to convey your original message.

          Brown: Dream ‘Building Awareness’ in China with Capacity Growth      Cache   Translate Page      

Published in: Cruise News

Thatcher Brown

When the Explorer Dream debuts for Dream Cruises next April, it will become the company’s pathfinder vessel, according to Thatcher Brown, president of the brand.

“We’ve learned there has been value in creating a pathfinder strategy,” said Brown, in an interview with Cruise Industry News in Shenzhen at China Cruise Shipping. “As we look to bring bigger ships into the market, we are also bringing a pathfinder ship in. Between now and getting the first Global-class vessel in 2021, we need to have a presence in North China. We need to start building our awareness and getting folks to really understand who we are and why they should cruise with us.”

The Explorer Dream will be converted from the SuperStar Virgo, introducing a number of Dream Cruises features, including the brand’s ship-within-a-ship luxury suite area, the Palace.

Next summer, the vessel will sail short cruises from Shanghai and Tianjin to Japan and Russia, utilizing the ship’s technical abilities which include a high service speed, enabling it to call on Russia on a five-day itinerary.

“We want to start inviting that market to cruise with Dream,” said Brown. The company’s two other ships are currently deployed out of South China and Singapore. “We need a ship up there to prime the market for the Global class.”

For winter 2019-2020, the vessel will move to Australia and New Zealand, with the company targeting Chinese and Asian guests in a fly-cruise market move.

“We are interested in expanding our footprint globally,” Brown said.

Beyond Australia, Brown said Alaska was “still on the horizon” for Dream Cruises, but the company would need to have the right timing, weighing the deployment move against revenue and demand.

Fly-cruise products will play an important role for Brown’s brand as well as the evolution of the Chinese market.

Fly cruises will demand an earlier booking curve, according to Brown, helping incentivize travel agents with the benefits of booking early in China, which is notorious for being a close-in booking market.

 “Pricing has a lot to do with how we move the booking curve out. If we can create more pricing transparency and integrity, we won’t have people waiting for the price to drop,” said Brown.

The Explorer Dream will join the larger Genting and World Dream vessels. The company gets new, 5,000-guest Global-class ships next, which are expected to enter service in early 2021 and 2022, respectively.

          Event: The Kassler Lecture from Herman Hertzberger      Cache   Translate Page      
Event Date: Nov 15, 2018; Event City: Princeton, NJ, US

Dutch architect Herman Hertzberger graduated in 1958 from what is now the Technical University of Delft. His architectural practice, AHH, was established in 1960. Hertzberger's best known designs include the Centraal Beheer head office in Apeldoorn, Music Centre Vredenburg in Utrecht, The Ministry of Social Affairs and Employment in the Hague and the Chassé Theatre in Breda. His office is known for its many cultural buildings, schools, and residential buildings in the Netherlands and abroad. Hertzberger has been awarded many fellowships and received prestigious awards for individual projects as well as for his work as a whole. In 2012, he was awarded the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) Gold Medal and in 2015 he received the esteemed Thomas Jefferson Foundation Medal in Architecture.

He has lectured at the Academy of Architecture, Amsterdam (1965-69), was professor at the Technical University of Delft (1970-99), visiting professor at the University of Geneva (Switzerland), and chairman of the Postgraduate Berlage Institute (1990-95). He has also presented lectures in Europe, North America, Central America, South America, the Middle East, Asia, and Australia.

Hertzberger's projects have been published and exhibited all over the world. He was one of the editors of the Dutch magazine FORUM, together with Aldo van Eyck and Jaap Bakema. Along with many magazine articles, he wrote the books Lessons for Students in Architecture (1991), which has been published in twelve languages, and Space and the Architect, Lessons in Architecture 2 (2000). Hertzberger's Space and Learning (2008) brings together his knowledge and ideas in a theoretical study of the spatial conditions of learning while The Schools of Herman Hertzberger (2009) presents his built and unbuilt schools, with an essay from sociologist Abram de Swaan calling Hertzberger a pre-eminently "sociological" architect. His latest book, Architecture and Structuralism (2015), attempts to formulate what structuralism means in architecture and why that matters, given a new impulse to the discussion about sustainability and a blueprint for a more democratic architecture.

Documentaries on Hertzberger include Searching for Space, a film by Kees Hin (2010), and The School as City from filmmakers Moniek van de Vall and Gustaaf Vos (2012).

Lecture made possible by the Kenneth Kassler Memorial Lecture Fund. The School of Architecture, Princeton University, is registered with the AIA Continuing Education System (AIA/CES) and is committed to developing quality learning activities in accordance with the AIA/CES criteria.

The Bullets recruit was briefly detained after landing in Brisbane on Thursday with his dog, Kobe.

          China gave foreign countries and journalists seminars on how to restrict online speech and unflattering news reports      Cache   Translate Page      

xi jinpingReuters/Jason Lee

  • China has been hosting seminars for foreign countries and journalists on how to clamp down on online speech and writing positive news about China's economic policies, Freedom House reported.
  • They include courses on President Xi Jinping's views on patriotism and tours of companies that monitor negative public opinion in the country.
  • Many of them catered to countries that are part of China's Belt and Road Initiative, a massive infrastructure project that aims to link 70 countries around the world.
  • Those courses appeared to work on some of the countries, who issued laws clamping down on online speech after attending the seminars.
  • China has a long record of muzzling free speech in the country.
  • It wields a lot of soft power over its economic allies, largely because of its financial investments around the world.

China has been holding seminars for foreign countries and journalists on how to restrict online speech and write positive news about it, according to a Freedom House report published this week.

The programs — which appear tailored to specific countries and regions — included courses like "socialist journalism with Chinese characteristics" and a class on "the Chinese Dream," Freedom House said.

Those two slogans were popularized under President Xi Jinping, and lay out his view of patriotism and innovation as long as it does not defy the Chinese Communist Party.

The programs appeared to be marketed to countries involved in China's Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), a massive infrastructure project launched in 2013 that aims to link China to more than 70 countries across Asia, Europe, and Africa.

It is one of President Xi Jinping's pet projects, and Beijing has invested between $1 trillion and $8 trillion in those projects since 2013, according to the Center for Strategic and International StudiesMultiple BRI partners have racked up billions of dollars in debt because they couldn't afford to repay China's loans on infrastructure projects.

Here are some of the seminars China hosted over the past year, according to Freedom House.

  • November 2017: A two-week "Seminar on Cyberspace Management for Officials of Countries along the Belt and Road Initiative," where officials toured a company — unnamed in in the report — that monitored, using big data, negative public opinion, and created a "positive energy public-opinion guidance system."
  • May 2018: Prominent journalists and media officials from the Philippines visited China for two weeks to learn about "new media development." What this means exactly is not clear.
  • A similar conference for media staff in Thailand taught attendees about the "Chinese Dream" and how media outlets can report domestic and international affairs, including China's economic development. The date of this conference is not clear.
  • Representatives from Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates also attended a three-week "Seminar for Senior Media Staff in Arab Countries" at an unspecified date.

Details about what actually happens during those seminars are scant. But pictures published by the Chinese ministry of commerce of a seminar on the "promotion of international cooperation," held last August for 43 officials from BRI countries, showed delegates attending a lecture by Chinese officials and receiving a "graduation certificate" at the end.

China flexes its soft power

Those seminars appeared to work on the foreign countries.

After Vietnamese officials attended China's seminar on media management in April 2017, it introduced a cybersecurity law that ordered global tech companies — such as Google and Facebook — to store personal data of users in Vietnam in the country.

Uganda and Tanzania also introduced similar laws clamping down on online media dissemination after their officials attended China's seminars over the past year, Freedom House said.

It echoed existing cybersecurity laws in China, which order tech companies to store personal and financial data collected in the country within its borders.

Chinese authorities have previously demanded domestic tech companies to hand over user data and the contents of private conversations.

Earlier this year, the Ministry of Public Security announced that law-enforcement officers could obtain and use private conversations on popular messaging app WeChat in legal proceedings.

Beijing has repeatedly proven the strength of its soft power, much of which stems from its immense economic power around the world.

Taiwan also claims that China uses economic partnerships to pressure countries to cut off diplomatic ties with it. Beijing insists that Taiwan is part of China, while Taipei recognizes itself as an independent nation.

Australia's former foreign minister, Julie Bishop, also revealed earlier this week that Australia did not strike a trade deal with Taiwan because her counterpart Wang Yi simply told her not to. China is Australia's largest trading partner, top export market, and biggest import source.

China also clamps down on online speech and thought within the country. Law-enforcement authorities have muzzled free speech in the past by censoring posts and forcefully disappearing people seen to speak out against the regime.

It also ranks citizens' behavior on a social credit system, which doles out punishments and rewards depending on the individual's score.

          Franz Tost: "Kvyat tiene cuentas pendientes, merece estar en la Fórmula 1"      Cache   Translate Page      
tost-kvyat-tiene-cuentas-pendientes-mere

La historia de Daniil Kvyat en la Fórmula 1 dio un vuelco tras el Gran Premio de Rusia de 2016, en el que tras colisionar en dos ocasiones con el Ferrari de Sebastian Vettel, Helmut Marko decidió ofrecerle su asiento a Max Verstappen en Red Bull, degradando al ruso a Toro Rosso.

Desde ese momento, Kvyat no logró ofrecer un rendimiento acorde a las exigencias, por lo que finalmente fue despedido tras el Gran Premio de Estados Unidos de 2017, pasando posteriormente a ser piloto de simulador de Ferrari.

Ahora Toro Rosso vuelve a reclutarle de cara a 2019, pues la marcha de Carlos Sainz a McLaren, la de Daniel Ricciardo a Renault y el ascenso de Pierre Gasly para ocupar el puesto del australiano dejan a Toro Rosso en una situación complicada para encontrar pilotos con suficiente experiencia para la Fórmula 1.

Franz Tost, en cualquier caso, ha alabado las condiciones del piloto ruso, recordando la complicada relación del pasado. “Ha sido bienvenido porque le tenemos como un buen piloto, pero las cosas no funcionaron como esperábamos. Hubo muchos accidentes, el coche además no era tan competitivo ni fácil de conducir. Y si no tienes tanto apoyo, es complicado”, admitió en declaraciones a Autosport.

tost-kvyat-tiene-cuentas-pendientes-mere

Daniil Kvyat volverá a tener una oportunidad en la Fórmula 1.

Según Tost, ambas partes perdieron la confianza y eso hizo irreconciliable la relación. “Fue una decisión muy dura, pero creo que fue la mejor, porque tuve la sensación de que ambas partes habíamos perdido un poco de fe en el otro. Daniil no estaba muy contento con nuestro trabajo, nosotros no lo estábamos con algunas de sus carreras. Como siempre, si el éxito no llega, se cuestionan muchas cosas por ambas partes”, afirmó.

Ahora Franz Tost confía en que Daniil Kvyat vuelva con más fuerza que nunca tras haber estado un año alejado de la competición. “Kvyat tiene cuentas pendientes con la F1, tendrá una nueva oportunidad y realmente espero que la aproveche. Merece estar en la F1, es muy rápido. Espero que el año sabático le ayude a unirlo todo y mostrar su verdadero talento, sus habilidades y su velocidad. Si le proporcionarmos un coche adecuado, estoy convencido de que nos brindará buenos resultados”, concluyó.

          PNG bishops call for asylum seekers to be admitted to Australia      Cache   Translate Page      

Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea, Nov 6, 2018 / 04:01 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- Police in Papua New Guinea are moving sick refugees and migrants out of the capital city in preparation for a major economic conference, drawing ongoing criticism from the country’s Catholic leaders.

The refugees and migrants are being sent back to Manus Island off the northern coast of the country, where asylum seekers trying to reach Australia are being housed in poor conditions.

The Australian government has sent hundreds of asylum seekers to the island for processing since 2012, and around 70 men had been taken to Port Moresby, the capital, for medical treatment.

As many as 10 of the men being moved had not finished their treatment, but were told they would return in a month to complete it, Guardian Australia reported. One man reportedly attempted suicide after he was told he would be sent back to Manus Island without treatment.

Authorities are justifying the move by saying that the city’s hospital is needed for Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation conference delegates and conference employees who may need medical treatment. APEC is scheduled to begin meetings in Port Moresby Nov. 12.

The Papua New Guinea Bishop’s Conference recently called for all the refugees and asylum seekers to be brought to Australia by Dec. 25, saying that their country cannot continue to provide adequate care.

“We are deeply concerned that the human rights of the refugees and asylum seekers have been breached as they were forcibly sent to [Papua New Guinea]; and Australia's policies has caused us reputational damage,” a panel convened by the bishops wrote Nov. 1.

“We, the participants are speaking on behalf of the women and children on Manus who are the victims of Australia's policies. The men have suffered enough from prolonged detention. Enough is enough. The time has come to let them go.”

About 650 migrant and refugee men are currently living on Manus Island, according to The Guardian. Conditions are bad, according to Behrouz Boochani, a Kurdish Iranian journalist, who said the men are suffering widely from mental and physical illness. The conditions at the camps have been condemned by Church leaders and human rights groups.

Australia has had a system of “third country processing” since 2012 for asylum seekers who come to Australia by boat without a valid visa. The system transfers the asylum seekers to other countries, where they are processed based on that country’s laws.

Many of those seeking asylum in Australia come from Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, Iraq, and Iran, travelling by boat from Indonesia. They are typically intercepted by the Australian navy before reaching land, and are then sent to detention camps in Papua New Guinea and Nauru, a small Micronesian nation.

The government of Australia made an agreement with the government of Papua New Guinea in 2013, providing that migrants sent to Papua New Guinea from Australia would be settled there if they are found to be refugees. Otherwise they would be sent back to their country of origin or another country where they have legal residence.

Papua New Guinea is facing a medication shortage, an outbreak of polio, increased rates of tuberculosis, and funding crises in health and education, according to The Guardian.

Guy Fawkes Day- 5 Things to Know about the UK Celebration of Failed Revolution


Upvoted by: Amal Ben Hadj Mabrouk, Frederike Kipper, Lauren Phelps, Milan Nikolic





Guy Fawkes Day is annually celebrated throughout Britain on November 5. Being known as Bonfire Night and Firework Night as well, this holiday represents perpetual celebration of liberty over tyranny. If you may be wondering who Guy Fawkes was or how is this day celebrated, keep reading this article because here are five things you should know before celebrating the next Guy Fawkes Day.


1.Historical background
On the evening of the 5th of November 1605, a group of men attempted the "gunpowder plot", a failed try to blow up the Houses of Parliament and kill King James the First. The man behind this terrorist act was named Guy Fawkes. Nevertheless, the plan was discovered when one of the conspirators sent a letter to his cousin warning him not to come to the Houses of Parliament. Fawkes was caught just before lighting the fuse which led him to execution.


2.Religion background
Guy Fawkes was one of a small group of Catholics who felt that the protestant government was treating Roman Catholics unfairly. They were not allowed to practice their religion in public because King James 1st, a Protestant, refused to change the laws. They hoped that attack would be the beginning of a great uprising of English Catholics. This plot backfired because it provoked hostility against all English Catholics and led to an increase in the harshness of laws against them.


3. 5th of November Poem
For many centuries the poem about Guy Fawkes's failed revolution has been spreading throughout England. The traditional verse exists in a large number of variations but this version seems the most popular:


Remember, remember the fifth of November,



Gunpowder treason and plot.
We see no reason
Why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot!


Guy Fawkes, guy, t'was his intent
To blow up king and parliament.
Three score barrels were laid below
To prove old England's overthrow.
By god's mercy he was catch'd
With a darkened lantern and burning match.


So, holler boys, holler boys, Let the bells ring.
Holler boys, holler boys, God save the king.
And what shall we do with him?
Burn him!






4.Guy Fawkes mask



In the 1980s graphic novelists Alan Moore and David Lloyd created a comic strip, "V for Vendetta", in which the main protagonist is a cloaked anarchist who wears a grinning Guy Fawkes mask while battling against a fascist authoritarian state. The authors wanted to celebrate Fawkes by turning him into an anti-hero for the modern age.
Since then the image has been adopted by the Occupy movement, and Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, has also donned a Fawkes mask. It has become a regular feature of many protests. Mr Lloyd has called the mask a "convenient placard to use in protest against tyranny…it seems quite unique, an icon of popular culture being used this way".


5.Celebration
Today, this event continues to be remembered through the usage of fireworks and bonfire parties, mostly in England but also in places such as Australia and New Zealand. A part of the celebration is burning effigies of the conspirator.

.
The Boys were a hard rock band originally from Perth, Western Australia. Boys originally formed by guitar playing siblings, Lino and Camillo Del Roio, whilst still at high school as the Rockhouse Corporation in 1977 and started out as a cover band playing mostly top 40 rock but then progressed into playing original songs. "When You’re Lonely" was the first single released in August 1980, with the single going to No. 1 on the local charts and reaching No. 52 on the national singles charts. In September 1980 the band appeared on Countdown. The Boys released two further singles, "Hurt Me Babe" in March 1981 and "Weoh Weoh Weoh" in September 1981, which reached No. 57 and No. 76 on the national charts.

The band released their self-titled debut in November 1981. In September 1982 they released, "Don't Say No", which was followed by their second album, Inside the Cage, in December 1982. The band's original singer for the first album, Brent Lucanus, was replaced by Wayne Green (Wayne Green and the Phantoms) on their second album. They were also the support act for the 1982 Kinks tour.


A further single, "Lonely Dreamers", was released in March 1983. The original band went through several line-up changes but brothers Camillo Del Roio and Lino Del Roio were constant members throughout. The band split in 1983 but reformed in 1987 with Camillo and Lino on guitar, Eddie Parise on bass, drummer Frank Celenza, Tony Celiberti as keyboardist, and singer, Troy Newman (Extremists). A year later the band changed their name to Boyschool but split soon after.


Following the band's break up guitar playing brothers Camillo and Lino formed D.D and the Rockmen with Celenza and the DeMarchi sisters Suze and Denise. The band's drummer and bassist, Celenza and Parise, went on to form Bamboo Curtain, before joining Baby Animals. Troy Newman moved to Sydney following the band's break up and found moderate success as a solo performer, scoring a Billboard hit with the single "Love Gets Rough" and the album Gypsy Moon in 1991, released through Atlantic imprint East West Records and by Warner Music in Australia. He released a second album, It's Like This, in 1996. Newman died in March 1997.


Lino Del Roio was appointed sales manager for Kosmic Sound (a music equipment supply company), in the late 1980s, which the two brothers subsequently bought, acquiring a number of other dealerships of leading brands of the time including exclusive dealerships for Steinberger and Ken Smith basses. They both played guitar for Western Australian hard rock outfit The Jets in the early 1990s. Tony Celeberti is an arranger for sheet music transcriptions who has worked on material by Guy Sebastian and Powderfinger, amongst others, for Australian publisher Music Sales. Brent Lucanus went on to play in a few bands around Perth, notably Change Alley with Gary Dunn. [extract from Wikipedia]

Perth Local Boys Make Good !
(Newspaper Article)
The "Marfioso" heavily guard the stage at the back and the sides so eager hearted young women can't close in on their hard hitting idols.
"Older" women swing to the music, enjoying themselves while filling in time till the end of the gig when they can proposition the band members, some almost ten years their junior.
On stage, with two hands on the microphone, the vocalist leans forward and growls into the tuned-in audience, then breaks into the deep throated lyrics of well known rock songs.
His friends' dark hair, t-shirts and jeans give nothing away about the personalities and life-style of the band members. Only the youthful faces tell the packed gig they're not your usual hard nosed, weathered rock stars.The Boys, Perth's newest breath of fresh air-on, the music scene, are aptly named — they are still only boys.

Less than 20 months ago friends Lino Del Roio (now 17), his brother Camillo (14) and Robbie Salpietro (17), got together in the Del Roio garage with a couple of guitars and a bass, playing for 
friends, neighbours and anybody else who would listen.
They were searching for the elusive dream to which every young hopeful aspires — to be in a rock band. With another friend, Tony Cimino, they formed a reasonable group, but something was missing. Brent Lucanus (20) was the answer. In true "Boys" style another friend brought him to jam at a garage gig.

Brent laid on Jon English's "Hollywood Seven" broke the ice and dissolved the need for a vocalist.
After a little persuasion ("Because I thought they were all too young for me," he said), Brent joined the embryonic commercial music band. After about nine months of gigging in the garden learning rock 'n roll, Elvis and Status Quo numbers and taking the name Rockhouse Corp, they began playing at occasional club gigs.

The change in venues from clubs to pubs came after persuading a resident band of a suburban hotel to let them do a bracket with them - The manager of the band was so impressed with the young talent, he put them on to play Thursday nights.
"We ended up pulling bigger crowds than their band," said Brent. "The manager used to take the door money and give us only $90 for each gig which we used to pay off our $2000 loan on a PA."
After six months of being managed themselves, The Boys realised they weren't getting anything in return for the cut in their wages, and split with their manager. It was a hard time for The Boys.
At the tender age of 16 they were on the verge of breaking  up. They were getting stale and found gigs weren't coming easily.

The Boys supporting Cold Chisel
The band's real break came when they realised that Elvis was dead, so long live the Angels. The discovery paved Perth's yellow brick road to success. They got into the Angels, Sports, Stones, Bowie and Dylan, producing about 35 per cent heavy R 'n' R.
At that time the line-up changed when the drummer left to travel overseas. The new drummer a friend of a friend again was Carmelo Sailazzo (17). He offered a new sound and The Boys became a much tighter band. Only two months ago their fancy professional clothes reverted to basic black home style jeans and T-shirts.  A chance meeting with local band man-user David Zampitti, and they were on their way."At first he wasn't interested when he found out how old we were, and didn't think we would have anything going for us," said lead singer Brent.

Hassling him eventually paid off and The Boys were put on for a tryout at Hernandos, one of Perth's few rock night clubs. Some more coercing got them a second gig supporting the respected Elks, and people were impressed with their talent. The Elks support was probably the most eventful thing to happen to them, The Boys were spotted and booked immediately to support the four-week Perth tour with Loaded Dice. The end of the Dice tour led almost immediately to the Jo Jo Zep and the Falcons support , and in turn extensive public exposure. (Other notable bands that The Boys supported were Cold Chisel and ACDC)


They have had a lot of work offers around the pub scene since then and are becoming well known, well loved musicians.
Times have changed for The Boys. When they began Brent drove a dry-cleaning van and the rest were at school. Now Robbie has an extra job as an apprentice motor trimmer, Lino works as a clerk and Carmillo is the only one still at school.

Even though they're making good money from the band work, they don't live up to the image of rock "stars". The Boys maintain a youthful lifestyle. They all Jive at home with their parents, don't spend excessively, nor do they drink alcohol. Free time is usually spent with friends or going to movies.
The clean living has helped The Boys tread the path of success and they haven't looked back. The Boys are one of the bands most likely to succeed on a national level.
They have youth on their side and their potential is being noticed by quite a few recording companies' local branches.
But there is no rush to run into the recording studio, after all, even after having time to write and learn original material. The Boys will still be boys.

Savage Love Letter of the Day by Dan Savage
1525120010-1516999045-savage-letter-of-the-day-stamp-2018.jpg

I really need your help. I met a man in Feb last year. We were swimming and he asked me to his place to play backgammon. So I went and one thing lead to another and he got me really drunk and all of a sudden we were having sex a lot.

I hadn't been with a man since 2011, when my last partner died a horrific accident. In the beginning this guy reassured me that I was safe and in good hands. He also hadn't been romantically involved with anyone since his wife who he'd been broken up with 4 years earlier. He's only had a couple of girlfriends since.

So time went by and he revealed that he had a hair cutting fetish.

He asked me if I would help him with it. I said I would. So we did. But soon we started to use cocaine while acting out this fetish. In the beginning this was sort of fun. He was constantly stretching my boundaries with his fetish, which was exciting in the beginning . But then it started to rapidly affect my life. He was cutting my hair with clippers—it was all staged in front of the mirror—and I realized I wasn't enjoying it because we weren't communicating very well. And being high for me didn't allow me to get aroused.

He is almost 50 and has children and told me he didn't want more, which was a huge thing for me because I'm 40 and this would mean making a huge sacrifice on my part. So he said he would get a vasectomy. But he didn't. Then he did that thing men do where they don't want to wear a condom. It happened so often that I thought that he might actually want a child. I fell pregnant two times in ten months and had two terminations.

The fetish and the cocaine continued until I saw that his compulsion was almost pathological when he was so high one night seemed completely lost in it. Another night he cut my scalp because he was way too high and pushed too hard with the clippers.

I had to end the relationship. I wasn't happy and I'd completely lost myself in his world and life. I felt him to be really controlling. He was also gaslighting me about many things. He would continually tell me to fuck off if I didn't suck him off, which was usually after I was spent from orgasming. Then denied he'd ever said it. It was so abusive.

Then I lost my job and had to move away and live with my family. That's when my mother confronted me about wanting to bring charges against the person who sexually abused me as a child. The time with my family faced a whole lot of issues.

I've spent months feeling angry about how this all went down for me. Angry with this man, the hair cutting fetishist, a man who continually took from me until I fell apart. Then he didn't support me when I fell apart. I feel stupid for being so naive. But when I was able to return I decided to tell him I had moved back to town so that I didn't have to cross the street or feel uncomfortable when I saw him and mutual friends.

But now I'm feeling like I've made a mistake. I'm so angry.

Can you please give me some insight as to how to deal with this? And how to move on. I just want to enjoy my life in my community. I worked so hard to heal after my last partner dying and this has been really traumatic. And I'd really like to try and meet someone again but I feel too nervous to do so now that I've got a taste for certain kinks. How do I establish this again if I ever meet another man again? I feel like this relationship unlocked something deep in me. I would like to experience this again. But under way safer circumstances.

I really love your show and I would love to hear what you would say about this man.

Fan From Australia

There's an awful lot going on in your letter, FFA, and I'm hoping you're back in therapy—because a history of sexual trauma, the traumatic death of your partner, a toxic relationship with someone whose drug use contributed to him injuring you during sex is an awful lot to process. I'm not sure I could even help you unpack much less resolve all of that in this space.

Actually, I am sure: I can't. But I can say this...

This man—that man, the man with the clippers and the cocaine problem—sounds like an asshole. I would say you're well rid of him and that you should continue to steer clear of him.

As for the taste for kink you developed—or surfaced—during your relationship with that cocaine-abusing asshole...

Often when someone has a bad experience with kinky sex—or a bad experience with a kinky sex partner—that person will swear off kinky sex forever. (If people did the same thing after a bad experience with vanilla sex in the missionary position, FFA, human beings would've gone extinct hundreds of thousands of years ago.) But the problem usually isn't the kinky sex, FFA, but the person with whom that kinky sex was had, i.e. an asshole.

It's not impossible to swear off kinky sex, of course, particularly if you're an otherwise/mostly vanilla person who was merely indulging someone else's kinks. But it's harder to run away from your own kinks. Much like being gay, being kinky is "hardwired" and can't be willed away or sworn off; suppressing kinks works about as well in the long run as suppressing same-sex desire. (This was your first experience with kinky sex, FFA, but it would seem that it resonated for you and awakened something that was in you all along—and that's not an uncommon route to sexual self-discovery. The kinky wiring was already there, this relationship activated it, now you gotta have it.)

The sex we wanna/gotta have has a way of winning in the end, FFA, so we're better off working with instead of fighting our desires. That means finding a way to act on them responsibly—and it sure doesn't sound like you and your most recent ex were acting responsibly.

Now for the good news: it is possible to have good-to-great kinky sex, FFA, and safe, sane, and responsible partners make it possible—finding one and being one. And when it comes to kinks that involve blades and cutting implements (even relatively safe ones like clippers), responsible = sober and sober = responsible. That goes for the bottom as well as the top.

So here's what you'll wanna establish prior to engaging in kinky sex with your next sex partner: a real connection and open lines of communication. You'll wanna find and be the kind of partner who can calmly negotiate for the kind of sex you wanna have. You're gonnawanna have more than one convo about safety, limits, boundaries, sobriety, and safe words—and when you're ready to get kinky, FFA, you're gonnawanna take it slow. Baby steps. Taking it slow will allow your new partner to prove that he's capable of respecting your limits—and once he's demonstrated that, FFA, once he's really earned your trust, you can expand or push those limits.

          China's Middle Class Is Again Desperate To Move Its Money Out Of The Country      Cache   Translate Page      

The Chinese middle class is again taking substantial risks to move their money out of China. As a result, Chinese investors are blowing up foreign real estate markets while risking getting ripped off at the same time. 

The South China Morning Post recently highlighted one such example, profiling several Chinese citizens who purchased property in Australia to safeguard their wealth, only to see the well-known Australia-based property agent suddenly shutter its doors in August, leaving behind about $50 million in missing deposits and failed settlements.

This kind of "unexpected" event is just one example of the risks that Chinese mainlanders face while trying to protect themselves by moving assets overseas, especially in light of Beijing's strict capital controls on outbound capital. Many Chinese citizens even seek out citizenship or visas in nearby friendly foreign countries to diversify away from investment options at home.

And in China, this isn't just some basic diversification strategy like it is elsewhere around the globe. Instead, it is a direct response to growing fear that the Chinese quality of life is deteriorating. It's also a result of growing frustration that there are so few opportunities to invest at home. And the government isn’t making it easy: China severely restricts capital flows out of its country, stating that it wants the cash to stay domestic for productivity and development purposes.

It also means that those who accrued their wealth through the country’s real estate "boom" really don’t have a way to feel financially secure, as their proceeds must stay within the country, subject to several additional growing bubbles inevitably waiting to pop in China. And it isn’t just for economic reasons - Chinese citizens are also starting to look abroad as a result of the country's authoritarian political climate, heavy pollution and national food safety and vaccine scandals.

Faced with increasingly draconian capital controls, China's citizens are growing desperate to move their money offshore and doing silly things to achieve it. Take Raymond Zhang who was in his early 40s when he paid to join a real estate investment tour of Australia. He was thinking he would diversify his finances to safeguard them.

“It had been arranged for us to visit a dozen property projects in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane, including flats, villas and houses with land packages. I loved Australia as soon as I landed there. The [prices of the] properties and living costs were quite affordable for us, not to mention the good air, legal system and education system for my family,” he told the SCMP.

The company that took them overseas asked for a $29,000 deposit, to be returned to 35 days after the investors returned back to China. Zhang says the money was never returned.

Meanwhile, the door to get money out of the country is closing as Beijing has dramatically increased the way it polices efforts to skirt capital controls and even "names and shames" people involved in this effort in order to warn the country's middle class. The State Administration of Foreign Exchange, or SAFE, told the SCMP that at the end of August, there were 23 such cases outstanding. Five of them involved Chinese individuals trying to buy property overseas, others were using "underground banks" to buy property and move large chunks of money out of the country.

To limit capital flight, Beijing grants every individual a mere $50,000 foreign exchange quota, and buying beyond that amount requires special approval from SAFE. In addition to an annual cap on foreign exchange purchases, Beijing also limits individuals’ overseas withdrawals using a Chinese bank card at 100,000 yuan (US$14,400) per year.

* * *

The effect of China's capital flight isn't confined just to the mainland. Those looking to buy real estate outside of the country have negatively impacted many local economies, sometimes causing housing markets to bubble.

In response, Australia has tried to tighten its foreign investment rules in response to Chinese capital inflows. In 2016, the land Down Under even made it illegal for the country's four major banks to lend to foreign property buyers without domestic incomes. New Zealand went so far as to simply prohibit foreigners from buying property altogether because the demand was driving property prices out of the reach of locals. Canada did something similar, canceling its Canadian Federal Immigrant Investor program because of the huge backlog and bubbly real estate markets in places like Vancouver and Toronto.

Hundreds of Chinese "investors" who had put down deposits or bought homes in Malaysia also found themselves scrambling after new Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad stated his country would not allow foreigners to buy residential units in a forthcoming $100 billion real estate project, which is being developed by a Chinese firm.

Laura Zhang, who already bought a home in the project told SCMP: "What Mahathir said has definitely had a negative impact on the demand from and aspirations of middle-class investors from China. We feel we are not welcome here and there is growing uncertainty and risk for our long-stay visas and investments." 

In the United States, the EB-5 investor visa seems to finally have fallen out of favor given how immigration law under President Trump has tightened significantly. Approval for this visa can take up to 10 years and the huge backlog has deterred people from signing up.

None of these developments have quenched Chinese citizens' thirst to move their savings overseas. Raymond Zhang, who lost his nearly $30,000 deposit, concluded by telling the SCMP that even if he cannot get his money back, he still wants to buy property abroad: 

"I’m really worried about the worsening economic situation on the mainland, so that is really my main driver to have another go," he said.

In light of this pent up capital flight, one wonders how long before enterprising Chinese citizens rediscover cryptos and some novel way of bypassing China's firewall, and resume buying and sending cryptocurrencies outside the country. As a reminder, it was Chinese citizens that back in late 2015 first catalyzed the next massive move in bitcoin from $230 all the way up to $20,000 - a move which was subsequently joined by Japan and South Korea - before a global coordinated crackdown was required to halt interest in and purchases of cryptocurrencies.

Hi Can you keep the unused amount in the pipette? I have been using the Anvantix 10-25kg on 3 dogs for years, but unfortunately I lost one of them recently :(, so I now end up with 1ml too much :( I live in a paralysis tick area in Australia, so I use it every 2 weeks in summer. I normally draw it out with a syringe, so the amount that is left in the pipette is clean. Any advice appreciated :)

Aladdin opened on Broadway at the New Amsterdam Theatre to critical acclaim on March 20, 2014 and quickly established itself as one of the biggest new blockbusters in recent years, breaking 13 New Amsterdam Theatre house records and welcoming over seven million people worldwide. Its global footprint has expanded to include productions in Tokyo, Hamburg, London and Australia, in addition to the two U.S. productions.

About Aladdin

Produced by Disney Theatrical Productions, the show features music by Tony Award and eight-time Oscar winner Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast, Newsies, Sister Act), lyrics by two-time Oscar winner Howard Ashman (Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid), three-time Tony Award and three-time Oscar winner Tim Rice (Evita, Aida) and four-time Tony Award nominee Chad Beguelin (The Wedding Singer), with a book by Beguelin, and is directed and choreographed by Tony Award winner Casey Nicholaw (The Book of Mormon).

Aladdin, adapted from the Academy Award-winning animated Disney film and centuries-old folktales including "One Thousand and One Nights," is brought to fresh theatrical life in this bold new musical. Aladdin's journey sweeps audiences into an exotic world of daring adventure, classic comedy and timeless romance. This new production features a full score, including the five cherished songs from the Academy Award-winning soundtrack and more written especially for the stage.

The animated film Aladdin was released by Disney in 1992 and was a critical and box office smash, becoming the highest-grossing film of the year.

The film won the Oscar for Best Original Score and introduced the hit song "A Whole New World," which won the second of the film's two Academy Awards as Best Original Song. The Peabo Bryson/Regina Belle recording of the tune soared to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Aladdin is designed by seven-time Tony-winning scenic designer Bob Crowley, six-time Tony-winning lighting designer Natasha Katz, two-time Tony-winning costume designer Gregg Barnes and sound designer Ken Travis.

The production team also includes illusion designer Jim Steinmeyer, hair designer Josh Marquette and makeup designer Milagros Medina-Cerdeira. The music team is headed by music supervisor and music director Michael Kosarin, who also created the vocal and incidental music arrangements, joined by orchestrator Danny Troob and dance music arranger Glen Kelly.

          HAPPY BIRTHDAY NIKITA      Cache   Translate Page      


"Nikita"


Today is Nikita’s 3rd birthday.  She has been with us for about eight months now and has found a place in our family and our hearts.  For the first fourteen months of her life she was with a “puppy raiser” for the Guide Dogs of America foundation. Nikita was socialized with lots of other dogs and people and taken to so many different places for her training.  The ‘puppy raiser’ was kind enough to send me pictures of her life before I got her.  Nikita has been to restaurants, parks, Boy Scout troop meetings, children’s hospital, painting classes, doctors and dentists offices, movies, on a ferry ride, Santa Anita racetrack, Christmas parades and many more places too numerous to mention.  At the end of her training she was assessed by the foundation and sadly turned down because she didn’t have the right temperament to continue.  I was told she gets too distracted to be a good guide dog.  I could definitely see how that would be true. 

Nikita was raised with two female Labradors, so transitioning to one sister, Ginger, my Australian Shepherd, wasn’t very hard for her since she was always trained with her sisters and many other dogs too.  At first they got along great and then not so much as they both vied to become the dominant one.  Nikita won for a while but somehow Ginger is now dominating and Nikita follows her around and takes her lead.  She won’t even go out by herself unless Ginger goes first. So they’ve worked it out between them. They play and run together and have a good time all in all.

The only thing that Nikita has still to master is her unauthorized horse herding.  She will sometimes run into the paddock and bark and chase the horses.  They mostly ignore her but Rosie did give her a warning kick out with her back legs once.  She’s getting much better at behaving and sitting and staying during turnout and bring in times. 


Here are some pictures of her life so far:


"How cute am I"


"Valentine Puppy"

"I'm a Halloween Butterfly"



"It's Election Day, I voted for the candidate with the most treats!"
"Here I am at Santa Anita, I bet on the winner"


"Saying Goodbye to my friends was hard"



"Nikita in her new home with us"
"I'm in my new home now with my new sister Ginger"
" I don't know what this white stuff is but I like it!"

" Um, I never saw one of these before"



"It's my stick...no it's MY stick"

For a California girl she loves the snow

My Co-Pilot

Can't get in the Kubota without an assistant to help me drag the arena

"Soaking up some sun on the patio"
"No I'm not coming in, one more step and I'm outta here"
" I know nothing about how these flowers got crushed, I think it was Ginger"


" I heard it's my birthday, where's the treats!"

           Comment on An Under-Appreciated Benefit of Lower Tax Rates by John Michael Wagner       Cache   Translate Page      
Greasypig, I'm not Dan, but here are my thoughts if they help. I have a little familiarity with Australia, but not extensive. My answer relates to America, but probably quite a bit to Australia as well. High-income people pay a larger share of taxes. In the US, the top 1% earn about 20% of all income yet pay 39% of all federal income tax. The bottom 50% earn 11% of all income yet pay only 3% of taxes. "The rich" DO pay disproportionately higher taxes, so they DO pay for extra government services (if that's even true). Then look where government spends money. In the US, two-thirds of federal spending goes to social spending like Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, etc. Quite a bit of pensions and medical care for senior citizens and medical care for lower-income people. It seems quite unlikely that "the rich" consume disproportionate amounts of govt services. Then combine the two points that "the rich" (a) pay more taxes and (b) likely consume a SMALLER share of government services!! Your guy is ridiculously wrong. He may be basing his views on very few people, like 0.001% of the population, who are exceptions to the rule yet don't change the bigger picture I described. A lottery winner who takes food stamps (food aid). Or maybe he just has no idea what he's talking about.
           Comment on An Under-Appreciated Benefit of Lower Tax Rates by greasypig       Cache   Translate Page      
G'day Dan, I'm a journalist from Australia and I've contacted you before about flat tax. I was hoping you could help me. I got in a Twitter war with some guy recently who appeared to know what he was talking about. I argued that a flat tax was the fairest tax because rich people use the same roads as less-rich, and have access to the same - if not less - government services as the less rich. Why should they pay extra for no extra benefit? He argued something he called "tax utility", and even though I asked him to define it simply, he couldn't make me understand. Basically, it appeared he was saying that rich people cause more wear on roads because they buy more. As they deplete their local stores, trucks have to hurry in and replenish stocks. Also, he implied that because rich people would be shopping more, they would be driving more. I've tried googling "tax utility" but all the results I get relate to "utilities" such as gas, electricity and water. Does my ideological opponent have a valid point? And have you heard of the term "tax utility"?

          Whatsapp when traveling?      Cache   Translate Page      
I'm overseas and I bought a local SIM card which I am using. My current WhatsApp contacts still seem to be able to contact me. But if I want a new contact to be able to find me on WhatsApp, should I give them my Australian number or my current local number?

My Australian SIM card doesn't work here at all even to receive calls, so if WhatsApp does something to try to verify the number if the person searches by it, that will fail, I guess. I don't want to actually switch WhatsApp to my current local number as I am only here for a few more days and I don't know how that will affect current contacts.

My ideal would be if I can just give the new contact my Australian number and they can find me that way on WhatsApp now even though I'm currently not using that SIM card. Will that work?

          Yes, Unvetted Illegal Caravans Threaten Public Health      Cache   Translate Page      

We live in bizarro times. Suddenly, it is controversial to state obvious, neon-bright truths. This week, it has become newsworthy to observe that illegal border-crossers who circumvent required medical screenings are a threat to America's public health and safety.

Just look at these hyperventilating headlines and tweets.

From Newsweek, which is supposed to, you know, report actual news of the week: "'We don't know what people have': Laura Ingraham calls migrant caravan a health issue."

And from The Daily Beast: "Fox & Friends Host Brian Kilmeade Fears 'Diseases' Brought By Migrant Caravan."

This is not "news." It's propaganda recycled and regurgitated by lazy political operatives masquerading as journalists. At least the Newsweek writer gave credit to his zealous hitmen sources: "Ingraham's comments," he dutifully wrote, "were first highlighted by Media Matters for America."

MMfA is a militant left-wing oppo research outfit funded by progressive billionaire George Soros. Somehow, not-really-Newsweek forgot to mention this fact. (Alas, mentioning Soros subsidies has also become a forbidden act this week, but that's another story.) The determined intent of these "news" pieces is not to inform readers but to inflame them with the dog-whistle assumption that conservatives, Fox personalities and ordinary Americans who worry about diseases from immigration are de facto racists.

On cue, tennis star and celebrity leftist Martina Navratilova barked at Fox News' Kilmeade on Twitter: "YOU ARE THE DISEASE! the migrants are not the problem, trump and his sycophants, like you, are the problem. Stop spewing fear and prejudice."

Comedian John Henson tweeted: "Brian Kilmeade is spreading the disease of intolerance every single day..."

And former Clinton press flack-turned CNN hack Joe Lockhart wrote: "This is the disease Fox News spreads every day. They are complicit with Trump in trying to change the character of our country."

Newsflash, fake newsers: It's neither racist nor xenophobic nor hateful to discuss the impact of unfettered mass immigration and unvetted caravans of illegal border-crossers on our public health.

My parents, legal immigrants from the Philippines, were screened for a panoply of communicable and infectious diseases.

My husband's great-great grandparents and their relatives from Ukraine underwent thorough medical and physical exams at Ellis Island immediately after disembarking from their arduous transatlantic journeys. A team of doctors checked for everything from eye disease and muscle weakness to heart conditions, ringworm and mental deficiencies. Those who failed were rejected and ejected. No appeals, no apologies, no amnesty.

I find it especially bizarre that some of the same outspoken, big government advocates for vaccinating every American citizen, young or old, against every possible condition, from the flu to chickenpox to HPV, are the same types now howling over the commonsense idea that we should protect ourselves from foreign diseases.

It wasn't Trump's idea to build a wall against microscopic invaders.

The Immigration and Nationality Act mandates medical screening exams for legal immigrants and refugees from around the world. The tests are performed by authorized physicians in either the applicants' countries of origin or in the United States. The process includes "a physical examination, mental health evaluation, syphilis serologic testing... and chest radiography followed by acid-fast bacillus smears and sputum cultures if the chest radiograph is consistent with tuberculosis (TB)."

Legal immigrants and refugees must provide mandatory proof of vaccination for measles, mumps, rubella, polio, tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis, hepatitis A and B, rotavirus, meningococcus, chicken pox, pneumonia and seasonal flu.

Moreover, the Centers for Disease Control, not Fox News or the Trump White House or any other evil conservatives, reports that "most experts agree that testing for TB, hepatitis B, and HIV should be performed for most new arrivals to the United States. Clinicians should also make a habit of ensuring that this screening has been done for every new non-US-born patient they see, regardless of time since the person's arrival."

Actual public health experts across the Southwest have reported rises in drug-resistant TB and dengue fever. In June, Australian public health researchers reported that "scabies, long considered a disease of the past in the developed world, is making its way back." The scientists pointed to mass global migration as a leading factor, noting scabies outbreaks among refugees to the European Union and along America's southern border.

And in Germany, federal epidemiologists reported that since opening the floodgates to migrants in 2015, data show "increased incidences in Germany of adenoviral conjunctivitis, botulism, chicken pox, cholera, cryptosporidiosis, dengue fever, echinococcosis, enterohemorrhagic E. coli, giardiasis, haemophilus influenza, Hantavirus, hepatitis, hemorrhagic fever, HIV/AIDS, leprosy, louse-borne relapsing fever, malaria, measles, meningococcal disease, meningoencephalitis, mumps, paratyphoid, rubella, shigellosis, syphilis, toxoplasmosis, trichinellosis, tuberculosis, tularemia, typhus and whooping cough."

It's simply insane to argue we should turn a blind eye to the health status of law-breaking aliens. And it's treachery, yes, treachery, for so-called journalists to use their platforms to blithely smear those who dare to question open borders orthodoxy or report the highly inconvenient facts.

First TriCinch Coil Tricuspid Repair Systems Implanted in U.S.

November 6, 2018 — 4Tech Inc. initiated its U.S. Early Feasibility Study of the TriCinich Coil System following U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval, with the first two implantations at Piedmont Heart Hospital in Atlanta. The implantations were conducted by  Christopher Meduri, M.D., Vivek Rajagopal, M.D., and Mani Vannan, M.D. The study will evaluate the TriCinch Coil System in 15 patients across seven centers in the U.S.

“We are pleased to be the first center in the U.S. to implant the TriCinch Coil System,” said Meduri. “Both procedures went smoothly, and the device was easy to implant. Having a technology like the TriCinch Coil System in our structural heart toolkit allows us to treat a wide range of patients suffering from tricuspid regurgitation, who are at high risk for open heart surgery, in a safe and simple manner.”

The 4Tech TriCinch Coil System is a percutaneous direct annuloplasty device designed to reduce tricuspid regurgitation by means of tricuspid valve (TV) remodeling via a nitinol coil anchor that is tensioned by a nitinol stent in the inferior vena cava (IVC).

The device is being evaluated worldwide with a CE-Trial that has enrollment in both Australia and Europe.

Tricuspid regurgitation is a common condition that is age-related and difficult-to-manage, in which blood “backflows” into the right atrium. Today’s standard of care for TR is medical management. Surgical intervention is high-risk, with an in-hospital mortality for isolated TR as high as 37 percent1. Patients with TR and related complications result in substantial healthcare spending due to frequent rehospitalizations. Furthermore, TR leads to chronic renal failure and the need for end-stage dialysis. The combination of these negative outcomes results in a significant unmet need for a minimally invasive solution for TR.

Tank & the Bangas, Big Freedia, Naughty Professor

          Malibu Tour to Dune Du Pyla      Cache   Translate Page      

https://www.facebook.com/leagull/posts/10212677388866040

Long break from flying on a hang glider brings especially sharp and vivid sensations.

Technically, the body, of course, remembers how to control the wing. It took a couple of minutes, though, to remember the ground control tricks in a strong and gusty wind and that was it.

Even the glider did not seem heavy nor the harness tight and stiff, as it had before on the first flights after shorter breaks. Perhaps it was because for “returning to hang gliding” I deliberately chose dune gooning flying, in which I personally experience the least amount of stress with a huge amount of joy.

Well, if you multiply the usual joy of flying a hundred times, then you will maybe get closer to how deeply and profoundly, and almost to tears happy you’ll feel when you have returned to the sky after a long break, when you fly again.

It is weird, of course, to write about “returning to the sky” for a person who, over the past two years, has spent more time in the sky than ever before, but it feels that way. It’s as if I had returned to my beloved dream, to my native element, to the coolest VR, and I was absolutely not ready to leave this place. I wanted to gasp in the air, the element, to get full of it, to feel the world as if through the prism of a drug, to hear the echo of happiness within my whole body.

Pity the feelings are not always so vivid when we fly. Why is it impossible to consistently feel something this profoundly?

I remember one day at the Forbes competition. I think it was the tenth consecutive day of continuous and very long flights. Moreover, since I was always flying slow, it would take me about six hours each day to fly the task which on average good pilots flew in four hours. Every day. The air temperature in the shade was over 40 degrees C. My body felt completely worn out already after five flying days, and only by an effort of will was I able to hook myself into my hang glider. Okay, who cares about the body.

Moral fatigue was accumulating, making me feel that I don’t want it any longer. To melt on the launch again, to be towed again acting automatically, to observe the same landscape again, to thermal again, to turn, to turn, again, again, and again. You remind yourself that you must appreciate every second of the flight, that you came to Australia, very far away from your home, that you must use every opportunity to fly, that it is winter in your own hemisphere. All the pilots seemed to be reminding of the same themselves, and were refusing to have a rest day, and flew, flew, flew.

On the tenth day, after around fifty kilometers of the task behind my back, I spiraled down all the way from the cloudbase to the ground. I am very not proud of it. I just wished it never happened. I wished I could always enjoy flying as much as I sometimes do, as when I was flying this time at the Dune du Pyla.

Because of all the rain, we were able to fly only in the late afternoon. Because of the rain, the Nikon was hidden far away in the car, so all the pictures are so-so: snapshots from the gopro and from the phone. No smiles to the ears and tears of joy are on the pictures. What you can see in the pictures is that the wind was strong and it was easy to get really high along and across the whole dune. By the way, the dune itself is three kilometers long, and the slopes and dunes adjacent to it from the south stretch and stretch and stretch as far as we had no time to fly even.

The benefit of the strong wind and rains was that there were no paragliders, which, according to the locals, completely occupy the dune. So we were able to do whatever we wanted.

I refused to believe that sunset came so quickly, and continued to fly after sunset, then after dusk, and landed in the end in the dark. Night fury, - said Andrey, illuminating the slope with a small flashlight.

It felt very sad to part with this feeling of flying. As with a dream that, you know, exists in reality. Later, in the hotel, after a long day and long grueling transports of the gliders and the harnesses back and forth, I looked at myself in the mirror and saw a rejuvenated face. Here it is, a little secret of eternal youth. Fly.

I won’t blog more about this journey, but if you want to read more about Dune du Pyla, this is my very detailed story from 2014 about this place: https://zhenya.blog/2014/…/malibu-tour-to-dune-du-pyla-2014/

Ủy ban Kiểm tra Trung ương kết luận: “vi phạm khuyết điểm của ông Chu Hảo là rất nghiêm trọng, làm ảnh hưởng đến uy tín của tổ chức đảng, tác động xấu tới tư tưởng xã hội, đến mức phải xem xét thi hành kỷ luật”.

Chúng tôi cho rằng sự quy kết như vậy của Ủy ban Kiểm tra Trung ương về ông Chu Hảo là không chính đáng, không đúng sự thật, thể hiện sự trấn áp thô bạo những nỗ lực rất đáng trân trọng của một trí thức hết lòng vì dân vì nước, chà đạp những ý kiến chân thật và xây dựng của ông về những vấn đề nóng bỏng của đất nước. Không chỉ riêng chúng tôi, mà hầu hết những ai đã từng được đọc những cuốn sách do Nhà xuất bản Tri Thức phát hành, từng đọc và nghe những ý kiến phát biểu của ông Chu Hảo về tình hình đất nước đều trân trọng những điều bổ ích mình thu nhận được, đều đánh giá cao sự phấn đấu không mệt mỏi của ông Chu Hảo noi gương bậc tiền bối Phan Châu Trinh xả thân cho sự nghiệp “khai dân trí, chấn dân khí” – một đòi hỏi vô cùng cấp thiết cho sự bảo vệ và phát triển đất nước ta lúc này.

Làm sao có thể sớm thực hiện được dân giàu nước mạnh, dân chủ, công bằng, văn minh, mà lại bóp nghẹt những nỗ lực mở mang dân trí? Chính vì lẽ này, chúng tôi yêu cầu Ủy ban Kiểm tra Trung ương rút lại kết luận sai trái về ông Chu Hảo.

Chúng tôi đồng thời kiến nghị với lãnh đạo Đảng và Nhà nước nên khuyến khích các nhà xuất bản trong nước làm những việc như Nhà xuất bản Tri Thức đang làm, động viên phong trào ham học, ham đọc sách trong cả nước, cùng nhau phát huy ý chí và trí tuệ sớm khắc phục được tình trạng tụt hậu hiện nay, đưa nước ta tiến nhanh theo con đường dân tộc và dân chủ.

Chúng tôi rất mong thư ngỏ này được nhân dân và trí thức cả nước hưởng ứng bằng mọi cách, cùng chung tay đẩy mạnh nỗ lực chung nâng cao dân trí của nước nhà.

China upgrades nuclear reactors to wean itself off coalAdvanced designs use homegrown and foreign technology as West looks on warily
November 04, 2018 12:03 JST

BEIJING -- China's state-owned power plant operators are introducing safer, more efficient nuclear reactors as the government looks to raise its nuclear power capacity by 50% by 2020 to reduce its reliance on coal.

So-called generation III plus reactors have safety features that automatically shut down the unit if the power is cut off. At least three advanced reactors will be operating in China by the end of the year, and more are on the way.

In Zhejiang Province, China National Nuclear Power, a unit of China National Nuclear Corp., began commercial power generation of its Sanmen-1 reactor in September, becoming the first company in the world to operate an AP1000 pressurized water reactor designed by Westinghouse Electric of the U.S.

Construction began in 2009. In April, the reactor received regulatory approval and was loaded with fuel. The 1,250 megawatt reactor was hooked up to the grid in June and was test run for 168 consecutive hours.

State Power Investment Corp.'s Haiyang plant in Shandong Province also has a Westinghouse AP1000 reactor, which began trial runs in August. Last month the advanced 1,250 MW reactor was declared ready for commercial operation. Eventually the power station will have six AP1000 reactors.



China General Nuclear Power Group's Taishan-1 in Guangdong Province is a European-type pressurized water reactor, or EPR, designed by French company Areva. The reactor was successfully powered up in June and trial runs are underway. If they go as planned, 1,750 MW plant will begin commercial operation by the end of the year.

According to China's National Energy Administration, more than 40 nuclear reactors are operating in the country, with a total capacity of 38,000 MW as of the end of August. Although that represents a near tripling of China's nuclear capacity compared with just five years earlier, nuclear power still accounted for less than 4% of the country's total output in 2017, while coal-fired plants had a 70%-plus share.

China's President Xi Jinping aims to raise the country's nuclear power output to 58,000 MW by around 2020, and to 150,000 MW by 2030, which would make it the world's biggest generator of nuclear power, ahead of the U.S. If it reaches that goal, nuclear power will grow to 8% of China's forecast electricity output.

Beijing is keen to develop its own nuclear reactor technology. Its Hualong One is a domestic version of the pressurized water reactor design, which it developed through its experience building and operating plants in China. It also incorporates technologies from overseas.



Even as China applies itself to developing nuclear power, the German and U.S. governments are wary of cooperating too closely, despite the business opportunities, due to concerns over technology leaks and possible military applications.

Plans are underway to build a number of Hualong One reactors, including at the Fuqing power plant in Fujian Province in China's southeast, and at the Fangchenggang nuclear project in the Guangxi-Zhuang Autonomous Region. China is also promoting exports of its homegrown advanced reactor in the U.K., Pakistan and elsewhere.

The U.S. Department of Energy in October announced new restrictions on exports of civilian nuclear technology to China. The German government in August blocked an attempt by Yantai Taihai Group, a metalworking and chemical company based in China's Shandong Province, to buy German precision equipment maker Leifeld Metal Spinning, whose machines can be used to fabricate nuclear plant components.

Although the new U.S. rules will not affect Westinghouse's AP1000 projects in China, Chinese companies hoping to use new American technology will have to offer more transparency about how it will be used.

Striking a balance between security and commercial interests will also be challenging for Washington. According to Chinese news outlets, U.S. exports to China of nuclear equipment totaled $170 million in 2017, making it the second-largest buyer of U.S. products after the U.K.

US medical school Johns Hopkins bars foreign scientists over intellectual property riskThe Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine has halted a visiting scientist programme in response to a national investigation over whether scientists in the US are sharing research results with foreign governments, in particular China, the South China Morning Post has learned.

Although the suspension affects scientists from many countries who plan to conduct research at the top medical school, the move is primarily aimed at Chinese scientists and China’s flagship science talent recruitment programme, researchers for Beijing’s Thousand Talents Plan have said.

“Effective immediately, the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine is temporarily halting the appointment of visiting scientists due to concerns voiced by the National Institutes of Health [NIH] about threats to biomedical research and loss of intellectual property,” read an email late last month from the Johns Hopkins Hospital to its faculty, the Department of Neurology, which was seen by the Post.

The university’s fraud unit has also discovered that some individuals have fabricated their funding documentation, the email said.

“Therefore, Johns Hopkins will not be hosting any visiting scientists [aside from those already here] until the NIH feels we can safely allow foreign nationals to be involved with government-sponsored research.”

In an earlier request for comment the medical school denied that it had halted the programme. It did not reply to a further request to respond to comments by scientists.

“While an email did go out to some faculty in one department, its contents were false,” a spokeswoman for the school said, adding that the school continued to offer and encourage visiting scientist appointments.

“Instead, what did happen was in response to a public message from NIH director Francis Collins, The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine recently reminded faculty members to review and comply with NIH policies related to NIH-funded research activities that have a foreign component.”

“The incident will affect up to 1,000 scientists if the suspension lasts a year, with many of them from China,” a US-based Chinese biomedical researcher told the Post. He agreed to be identified only by his surname, Zhang, for fears his comments might impact his career in the US.

“It’s necessary to protect intellectual property, but the suspension doesn’t help scientific research, which requires international collaboration,” said Zhang. “They need to strike a balance.”

China’s science talent recruitment programme has come under the spotlight of late, with US government agencies increasingly scrutinising Chinese programmes that they suspect are used to steal US technologies and intellectual property.

The most prominent of these is the Thousand Talents Plan, which was launched by Beijing in 2008 to tap into the talent of Chinese scientists educated or employed overseas.

It has attracted more than 7,000 researchers back to China – most from the US – with lucrative positions and substantial research grants. Many researchers in the programme maintain their overseas affiliations while working part-time in China.

The talent plan aims to “facilitate the legal and illicit transfer of US technology, intellectual property and know-how” to China, an analysis by the National Intelligence Council, a US intelligence unit, stated in April.

How China’s rampant intellectual property theft, long overlooked by US, sparked trade war

In August, the NIH, the nation’s largest research funder, began investigating whether grantees were sharing research findings with foreign governments, with NIH director Francis Collins sending a letter to more than 10,000 institutions to urge them to do likewise.

“The robustness of the biomedical research enterprise is under constant threat by risks to the security of intellectual property,” Collins said at a US Senate hearing in August after he sent the letter.

“But through conversations with law enforcement – and even just from watching the press – we can see that the magnitude of these risks is increasing.”

In response to a query, the NIH told the Post: “The goal of the efforts described in Dr Collins’ statement and letter to universities is to effectively root out examples where our system is being exploited.”

Trade war: why US and China remain so far apart on intellectual property rights

In a report titled Picking Flowers, Making Honey, the Australian Strategic Policy Institute last week alleged that China had been sending military scientists to Western universities to improve the People’s Liberation Army’s military capabilities.

According to the report, the PLA has sponsored more than 2,500 scientists to travel to universities in technologically advanced countries as students or visiting scholars over the past decade.

          Omosessualità e abusi - Affrontare la crisi: le lezioni della storia      Cache   Translate Page      
“La situazione è paragonabile a quella della Chiesa nell’XI e XII secolo”. Da autorevole storico della Chiesa e da presidente del pontificio comitato di scienze storiche dal 1998 al 2009, il cardinale Walter Brandmüller, 89 anni, non ha dubbi quando vede la Chiesa attuale “scuotersi fin nelle sue fondamenta” a motivo del dilagare di abusi sessuali e di omosessualità “in modo quasi epidemico tra il clero e perfino nella gerarchia”. “Come si è potuti arrivare a questo punto?”, si chiede il cardinale. E la sua risposta è in un ampio e argomentato articolo pubblicato in questi giorni sul mensile tedesco “Vatican Magazin” diretto da Guido Horst: Homosexualität und Missbrauch - Der Krise begegnen: Lehren aus der Geschichte [qui]. Di seguito la versione italiana integrale ripresa da Settimo Cielo

Omosessualità e abusi - Affrontare la crisi: le lezioni della storia
[Card. Walter Brandmüller, da “Vatican Magazin”, novembre 2018]

Apprendere che gli abusi sessuali e l’omosessualità sono diffusi in modo quasi epidemico tra il clero e perfino nella gerarchia della Chiesa in America, Australia ed Europa, scuote la Chiesa attuale fin nelle sue fondamenta, per non dire che l'ha fatta addirittura cadere in una sorta di stato di shock.
Si tratta di un fenomeno che, pur presente anche in passato, fino alla metà del XX secolo era sconosciuto nelle terribili dimensioni attuali.
Si pone dunque la domanda su come si è potuti arrivare a questo punto.

Nella ricerca di una risposta, lo sguardo cade subito, oltre che sulla società attuale caratterizzata da un liberalismo estremo, anche sulla teologia morale degli ultimi decenni e i suoi rappresentanti.  Tra loro, alcuni leader d'opinione hanno abbandonato il fondamento classico del diritto naturale e della teologia della rivelazione e proclamato nuove teorie. Una morale autonoma, che non vuole riconoscere le norme comunemente vincolanti, un consequenzialismo, che giudica la qualità etica di un’azione in base alle sue conseguenze, o un’etica situazionale, che fa dipendere il bene o il male di un atto dalle relative circostanze concrete dell’azione umana: tutti questi nuovi approcci nella teologia morale sono stati difesi da professori nelle aule di teologia, ovvero nei seminari, e naturalmente anche applicati alla morale sessuale. Lì, dunque, si è anche potuto dipingere  l’omosessualità come moralmente accettabile e la sua chiara condanna da parte della sacra Scrittura come legata al tempo e quindi superata.

Sullo sfondo agiva la vecchia convinzione tipicamente modernista – si seguiva lo schema dell'"evoluzione" – che la dinamica dello sviluppo dell’umanità verso un livello culturale sempre più alto comprendesse anche la religione e la morale. Così, raggiunto il livello successivo di consapevolezza più alto, ciò che ieri era ancora vietato oggi poteva essere permesso. I nomi che andrebbero citati qui sono famosi; alcuni di loro hanno addirittura insegnato nelle università pontificie senza essere esonerati dal loro incarico. Le conseguenze di tutto ciò sono emerse molto presto quando alcuni seminari, specialmente negli Stati Uniti, si sono trasformati in incubatrici di omosessualità. L’ex gesuita Malachi Martin nel suo romanzo a chiave “The Windswept House” de 1996 ha presentato dello scenario che si era così creato un ritratto che oggi si è rivelato spaventosamente reale.

Quando questa degenerazione è diventata palese, i cattolici, tanto spaventati quanto indignati, hanno reagito su larga scala, come mostrano in modo impressionante diversi portali internet.

Come conseguenza, il flusso di solito abbondante del denaro delle donazioni delle organizzazioni laiche cattoliche verso le casse vaticane è iniziato a diminuire: a prendere in mano la questione non è stato l’episcopato, bensì i laici. Il fatto di negare le abituali ricche offerte è visto, non a torto, come una protesta nei confronti delle mancanze di Roma nella crisi attuale. E proprio così facendo si è  seguito – probabilmente senza saperlo – un esempio storico dell’alto Medioevo.

La situazione è paragonabile a quella della Chiesa italiana nel XI-XII secolo. Il fatto che nel corso del primo millennio il papato, le sedi episcopali, perfino le più semplici funzioni ecclesiali, a motivo delle entrate che garantivano erano apparsi sempre più appetibili, ebbe come conseguenza che si litigava, si combatteva, si mercanteggiava per impossessarsene. Questo male era detto simonia: Simon Mago aveva offerto denaro all'apostolo Pietro perché gli conferisse i doni dello Spirito Santo. A ciò si aggiungevano poi la pretesa dei regnanti temporali di interferire nell’attribuzione di alti incarichi nella Chiesa – l'investitura laica – e ovviamente anche il concubinato di molti sacerdoti.

Lo stesso valeva per il papato, che nel IX e X secolo era diventato addirittura il pomo della discordia tra le famiglie nobili dei Crescenzi e dei Tuscolo. Questi, dunque, mettevano – non importa come – uno dei rispettivi figli o parenti come papa. Tra loro c’erano anche uomini molto giovani e moralmente dissoluti, che si sentivano più padroni del patrimonio di Pietro che pastori supremi della Chiesa.

Sulla scia di questi sviluppi crebbe anche l’omosessualità tra il clero. E ciò avvenne in misura tale che san Pier Damiani nel 1049 consegnò al neoeletto papa Leone IX il suo “Liber antigomorrhianus”, redatto in forma epistolare, nel quale esponeva questo pericolo per la Chiesa e per la salvezza dell’anima di molti. Il titolo della trattazione fa riferimento alla città di Gomorra che, secondo Genesi 18, per via dei suoi peccati era stata condannata da Dio alla distruzione insieme a Sodoma.

Damiani si aspettava da quel papa, noto come zelante riformatore, un intervento efficace contro il peccato largamente diffuso. Scrisse: “La sozzura sodomitica si insinua come un cancro nell’ordine ecclesiastico, anzi, come una bestia assetata di sangue infuria nell’ovile di Cristo con libera audacia, sicché la salvezza delle anime di molti è più sicura sotto il giogo della servitù di laici, che con l'accesso volontario al servizio di Dio sotto la ferrea legge della tirannia di Satana” che regnava tra il clero.

È alquanto degno di nota che quasi contemporaneamente si costituì un movimento laico, rivolto non solo contro l’immoralità del clero e il concubinato dei sacerdoti, ma anche contro l’impadronirsi degli uffici ecclesiastici da parte di poteri laici, ovvero la possibilità di acquistarli. Era proprio così che tra il clero si erano insinuati elementi che non avevano né la capacità né la volontà di condurre una vita conforme allo stato clericale. Per i signori laici, avere vassalli fedeli sulle cattedre episcopali era spesso più importante del bene della Chiesa.

A insorgere contro tutto questo fu il vasto movimento popolare detto della "pataria", guidato da membri della nobiltà milanese e anche da alcuni membri del clero, ma sostenuto dal popolo. Collaborando strettamente con i riformatori vicini a Pier Damiani, e poi con Gregorio VII, con il vescovo Anselmo di Lucca, importante canonista poi diventato papa Alessandro II, e con altri ancora,  i “patarini” sollecitarono, ricorrendo anche alla  violenza, la realizzazione della riforma che in seguito prese da Gregorio VII il nome di “gregoriana”: per un celibato del clero vissuto fedelmente, contro l’occupazione di diocesi da parte di potenze laiche e la simonia.

L’aspetto interessante è che il moto riformatore scoppiò quasi in simultanea nei massimi ambienti gerarchici a Roma e tra la vasta popolazione laica lombarda, in risposta a una situazione considerata insostenibile.

Questa unione d’interesse però non durò a lungo. Infatti, quando in seguito si formarono le diverse ramificazioni del movimento pauperistico, senza però riprendere l’impulso volutamente ecclesiastico e gerarchico dei primi francescani, bensì sfidando con predicazioni spontanee e non autorizzate la resistenza di una gerarchia che non comprendeva i segni dei tempi, non pochi dei “poveri di Cristo”, con il loro rifiuto della gerarchia fondata sul sacramento, scivolarono nell’eresia e nella disobbedienza. Nacquero così dei movimenti pauperistici ramificati, che solo grazie alla lungimirante azione pastorale di Innocenzo III poterono in gran parte essere reintegrati nella Chiesa.

Ricordare tali sviluppi nel presente contesto è utile, perché anche oggi è possibile riconoscere alcune di quelle deviazioni, quando laici fin troppo "impegnati" si rivoltano contro sacerdoti e vescovi.

*

Oggi come allora, nascono da ciò dei conflitti tra un episcopato impigliato nelle istituzioni e nella burocrazia – compresa la curia romana – e movimenti laicali che si sentono abbandonati, se non addirittura traditi, dai pastori e dai maestri della Chiesa, dai successori degli apostoli. Per superare la perdita di fiducia che si crea tra i fedeli, servirà uno sforzo non indifferente da parte della gerarchia e del clero. Certo, la congregazione per la dottrina della fede ha pubblicato dei documenti di teologia morale, come per esempio “Persona humana” (1975). Inoltre, a due professori è stata revocata, rispettivamente nel 1972 e nel 1986, la licenza d’insegnamento a causa di errori teologici, e alcuni libri sulla morale sessuale sono stati condannati. Ma gli eretici davvero importanti, come il gesuita Josef Fuchs, che dal 1954 al 1982 è stato docente presso la Pontificia Università Gregoriana, e  Bernhard Häring, che ha insegnato presso l’Istituto dei Redentoristi a Roma, nonché l’influentissimo teologo morale di Bonn Franz Böckle o quello di Tubinga Alfons Auer, hanno potuto spargere indisturbati, sotto gli occhi di Roma e dei vescovi, il seme dell’errore. L’atteggiamento della congregazione per la dottrina della fede e dei vescovi in questi casi è, in retrospettiva, semplicemente incomprensibile. Si è visto arrivare il lupo e si è rimasti a guardare mentre irrompeva tra il gregge. L’enciclica “Veritatis splendor” del 1993 di Giovanni Paolo II – il contributo che vi ha dato Joseph Ratzinger ancora non è stato debitamente riconosciuto – ha sì indicato con grande chiarezza le basi dell’insegnamento morale della Chiesa, ma si è scontrata con l’ampio rifiuto dei teologi. Forse perché è stata pubblicata solo quando il decadimento teologico-morale era già troppo avanzato.

Per quanto da un lato sia incomprensibile e deplorevole il fallimento della gerarchia, e dall’altro lato necessario e lodevole l’impegno dei laici nella situazione attuale, in entrambi questi atteggiamenti e comportamenti è possibile individuare notevoli elementi di rischio. Se il comportamento illustrato sopra della cosiddetta "Chiesa istituzionale", che si preoccupa più delle finanze e dell’amministrazione, causa il crescente abbandono della Chiesa da parte di popolazioni che un tempo erano cattoliche, un laicato fin troppo sicuro di sé corre il pericolo di non riconoscere la natura fondata sull’ordine sacro della Chiesa e di scivolare, nella protesta contro il fallimento della gerarchia, in un cristianesimo comunitario evangelicale.

Per quanto il laicato consapevolmente cattolico che si sta formando soprattutto nel cattolicesimo nordamericano vada non solo compreso, ma anche riconosciuto e incoraggiato nella sua protesta contro la degenerazione sessuale tra sacerdoti, vescovi e persino cardinali, non si può però perdere di vista il significato costitutivo del ministero sacerdotale e pastorale, fondati sul sacramento dell’ordine, e tanto meno il fatto che la maggior parte dei sacerdoti vive fedelmente secondo la propria vocazione.

Intanto, proprio la tensione esistente tra i due poli potrebbe diventare utile per superare la crisi attuale.

Tuttavia bisognerà fare attenzione a evitare una nuova edizione del conflitto tra i vescovi e i "trustee" laici negli Stati Uniti riguardo alla sovranità sulle finanze ecclesiastiche, sorto verso la metà del XIX secolo, e rimasto virulento anche in seguito.

Piuttosto, sarebbe bene ricordare il beato John Henry Newman, che ha reso meravigliosamente omaggio al ruolo importante che riveste la testimonianza dei fedeli "in matters of doctrine", ossia in materia di dottrina. Ciò che ha scritto nel 1859 dovrebbe essere applicato oggi anche alle materie economiche e morali, proprio ora che – come nelle lotte cristologiche del IV secolo – l’episcopato per lunghi tratti rimane inattivo. Il fatto che si possa constatare ciò anche nell’attuale crisi degli abusi può dipendere dal fatto che l’iniziativa personale e la consapevolezza della propria responsabilità di pastore del singolo vescovo sono rese più difficili dalle strutture e dagli apparati delle conferenze episcopali, con il pretesto della collegialità o della sinodalità.

Tuttavia, più i vescovi riusciranno a sentirsi sostenuti dalla ferma volontà dei fedeli di rinnovare, di ravvivare la Chiesa, più sarà facile per loro mettere mano a un lavoro di riforma autentica della Chiesa.

È nella collaborazione di vescovi, sacerdoti e fedeli, nella potenza dello Spirito Santo, che la crisi attuale può e deve diventare il punto di partenza del rinnovamento spirituale – e quindi anche della nuova evangelizzazione – di una società post-cristiana.

Hi there. My name is Scruffy. I'm about seven years old and I weigh about 60lbs. I was surrendered to the pound by my owner after the pound received a complaint call in reference to me living tied out on a chain in deep mud. Upon her arrival, a deputy found the complaint was true. My owner was not intentionally neglecting me though. He had cancer and just wan't able to care for me properly any longer. I am in desperate need of a great grooming and the pound is trying to get me scheduled somewhere. I am a very wonderful boy. I have lived outside my entire life, so I will need a patient family with the time to work with me on house training and house manners. I get along with some but not all other dogs, so I would need to meet new dogs I would live with prior to adoption. If you're looking for a lovable dog to add to your family, please consider adopting me. Our adoption payment is $120.00. The adoption charge must be paid in CASH.

          Chiến lược mới của Tổng thống Donald Trump chống Trung Quốc      Cache   Translate Page

1. Mở bài 

Tại đại hội 19 của đảng CSTQ, Tập Cận Bình tuyên bố: “Đã đến lúc Trung Quốc phải giành vị trí trung tâm trên trường quốc tế”. 

Để thực hiện “Giấc mộng Trung Hoa” (The Chinese Dream), Tập Cận Bình đưa ra chiến lược “Một Vành Đai. Một Con Đường” (Nhất Đới, Nhất Lộ), thành lập ngân hàng với số vốn 124 tỷ USD, cho vay và đầu tư vào các quốc gia nằm trên tuyến đường từ Châu Á, Châu Phi và đến Châu Âu.

Trung Quốc đã lập một vành đai căn cứ quân sự gọi là “Chuỗi Ngọc Trai” (String of Pearls) để bảo vệ vành đai kinh tế. 

Các nhà quan sát nêu nhận xét, Trung Quốc càng phát triển thì mối đe dọa càng cao đối với Hoa Kỳ. 

Tổng thống Donald Trump quyết ăn thua đủ với Tập Cận Bình, ông triển khai chiến lược “Ấn Độ Dương-Thái Bình Dương Tự do và Mở rộng” làm đối trọng với chiến lược Vành Đai Con Đường của Trung Quốc. 

Về quân sự thì Mỹ tăng ngân sách quốc phòng, bố trí lại sức mạnh số một của Hải Quân Hoa Kỳ để khống chế Trung Quốc. 

Các đồng minh của Mỹ tích cực tham gia bảo vệ tự do hàng hải đi qua Biển Đông. 

Trong khi cuộc chiến thương mại đến hồi căng thẳng, Tổng thống Trump tuyên bố “Trung Quốc sẽ không có một tấc đất nào ở Biển Đông”. Bộ trưởng Quốc phòng Trung Quốc, Ngụy Phụng Hòa đáp trả “Trung Quốc sẽ không bao giờ từ bỏ một tấc lãnh thổ dù đó là Đài Loan hay ở Biển Đông” 

Tình hình nóng bỏng như thế có thể gây ra chiến tranh, vì cá tính dám nói dám làm của Tổng thống Trump. “Làm cho nước Mỹ vĩ đại trở lại”. 

2. Sự hình thành của chiến lược Ấn Độ Dương-Thái Bình Dương “tự do” và “mở rộng” 

Chiến lược Ấn Độ Dương-Thái Bình Dương tự do và mở rộng (The U.S. “Free and Open Indo-Pacific” Strategy. Viết tắt là FOIP) do Tổng thống Donald Trump triển khai để chống lại chiến lược “Một Vành Đai-Một Con Đường” của Tập Cận Bình. 

Ấn Độ Dương-Thái Bình Dương là khu vực chỉ các quốc gia nằm ven hai đại dương là Ấn Độ Dương và Thái Bình Dương. 

Về kinh tế 

Hiện có 3 quốc gia với nền kinh tế lớn nhất hoàn cầu là Mỹ, Trung Quốc và Nhật Bản. Ngoài ra còn một số quốc gia có tốc độ gia tăng kinh tế rất nhanh. 

Về quốc phòng 

Bảy trên 10 quốc gia tại khu vực nầy có quân đội lớn nhất thế giới là: Hoa Kỳ, Trung Quốc, Nhật Bản, Ấn Độ, Hàn Quốc, Úc và Pakistan. 

Theo đánh giá của các nhà nghiên cứu thì sự ra đời của chiến lược Ấn Độ Dương-Thái Bình Dương phát xuất từ hai yếu tố then chốt: 

Một là: Do sự trỗi dậy mạnh mẽ của Trung Quốc, đặc biệt là việc xây dựng và quân sự hóa các đảo nhân tạo làm tiền đồn ở Biển Đông, đe dọa con đường tự do thương mại đi qua vùng biển nầy. 

Hai là: Trung Quốc đẩy mạnh “Sáng kiến Một Vành Đai-Một Con Đường” thách thức vai trò lãnh đạo thế giới của Hoa Kỳ. Trong khi đó khu vực Ấn Độ Dương-Thái Bình Dương chưa có một cơ chế đa phương, thống nhất hành động để bảo vệ tập thể, mà chỉ có những hiệp định song phương như Hiệp ước an ninh Mỹ-Nhật, Hiệp ước phòng thủ chung Mỹ-Hàn. 

Hoa Kỳ thấy cần phải có một cơ chế, tổng hợp lực lượng của đồng minh, thắt chặt quan hệ hợp tác có cả Ấn Độ để chống lại Bắc Kinh. Những đồng minh của Mỹ là Nhật, Hàn Quốc, Ấn Độ, Úc, Indonesia. 

Đó là chiến lược mà Tổng thống Donald Trump đang cổ xúy.
