Qatar Investment Authority will pay some US$4.2 billion (3.7 billion euro) for a 14.16-percent stake in Russia’s biggest oil producer Rosneft, thus becoming the third-largest single shareholder after the Kremlin and BP, the Russian company said on Tuesday. The deal with the sovereign wealth fund of Qatar is the final episode of a saga in which a little-known Chinese company until that point, CEFC China, said in September last year that it had agreed with a consortium of Glencore and Qatar Investment Authority (QIA) the terms of sale of the…

          Pakistan's immediate balance of payment crisis is over: finance minister       Cache   Translate Page      

Finance Minister Asad Umar on Tuesday claimed that Pakistan's "balance of payment crisis is over" and assured that China is committed to providing short-term relief to Pakistan as well — the modalities of which, he said, will be discussed in a new round of discussions in Beijing on Friday.

"The long-term solution to the balance of payment crisis is to increase our exports, and to do that we should have enough income so that we do not need to borrow," Umar, who was a part of the Prime Minister Imran Khan-led delegation that visited China recently, explained during a press conference today. "In this regard, we have received a commitment from the highest level.

"Regarding the doubling of our exports, we are not talking long-term. We have [this target] for the ongoing year. We have also discussed short-term reliefs. A decision in principle has been taken, but to discuss its modalities our contingent is going to Beijing on November 9.

"So this curiosity that the people have will also be resolved soon. We had told you about the $12bn financing gap, of which $6bn have come from Saudi Arabia, and the rest has come from China so the immediate balance of payment crisis of Pakistan has ended. I want to make that clear in unequivocal terms. We do not have any balance of payment crisis now. "

A statement released by the finance ministry echoed Umar's remarks, adding that "a senior level delegation comprising of federal secretaries of finance, foreign affairs, planning & development and commerce along with the State Bank of Pakistan's governor will undertake a visit to China during the current week to work out the modalities".

Foreign minister says Pakistan 'out of the woods' after China trip

Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi, meanwhile, claimed that the trip to China was "productive to the extent that we are out of the woods".

The foreign minister said that the purpose of the visit to China was to "send a message to the international community" and also "move the two countries' strategic relationship towards an economic partnership".

He said that a total of 15 memorandum of understanding (MoUs) were signed in China, of which he highlighted a quartet.

"We decided that our strategic dialogue must be upgraded and its level be raised to the FM level," he said. "It was also decided to transfer our citizens sentenced there and theirs sentenced here so that they can serve their sentences in their own countries.

"Thirdly, the MoU which is important to me is poverty alleviation. China is a country that has taken 700 million people out poverty in the last 30 years. One-third of our population also lives below the poverty line — so the purpose of this MoU was to learn from the Chinese experience."

"The fourth MoU was regarding agricultural cooperation," he said. "We think that through transfer of technology, we can get a lot from China. We can learn how to increase our productivity and our per-acre produce."

Qureshi claimed that the trip also served to rubbish the notion that the Pak-China relationship would suffer under the PTI government.

"The perception that some people here tried to give that the government was not paying attention to our relationship with China," he said. "There is nothing to it. I can say that our relations with China are not just great but could get even better than before.

"This visit helped us in moving our relationship towards an economic partnership. We have always had good strategic relations so our aim [this time] was to figure how to advance the economic footprint."

The foreign minister said he is confident that the discussion with the Chinese counterparts would help Pakistan "double its exports".

He further said that the two sides would try and wrap up the second phase of the Pakistan-China Free Trade Agreement (FTA) by April 2019.

          Alice Wells discusses progress in bilateral ties during meeting with Foreign Office officials       Cache   Translate Page      

Senior US diplomat Alice Wells on Tuesday held delegation-level discussions with senior officials of the Foreign Office to review progress on bilateral relations.

"The meeting took stock of the understanding reached between Foreign Minister [Shah Mehmood] Qureshi and Secretary [Mike] Pompeo to rebuild the relationship based on mutual trust and respect," FO spokesman Dr Mohammad Faisal said in a statement.

Pakistan during the meeting stressed the need to increase commercial and economic cooperation and people-to-people contacts in order to diversity bilateral US-Pakistan relations, the handout said.

The evolving regional situation and peace and stability in Afghanistan were also discussed during the meeting.

"The US delegation appreciated the need to strengthen the bilateral relationship with Pakistan which [is] an important country of the region," the statement revealed.

The two sides agreed to continue efforts to promote the shared objectives of peace and stability in the region and to diversify their bilateral relationship.

Meeting with finance minister

The US envoy also called on Finance Minister Asad Umar.

During the meeting, Wells and Umar discussed the present state of Pakistan-US ties — with an emphasis on economic cooperation — and the overall security situation in the region, a Ministry of Finance press release said.

"Matters related to international cooperation to curb terror financing also came under discussion," the statement said.

The finance minister was quoted as saying during the meeting that Pakistan had made great strides in the war against terrorism in recent years and "it will continue to take all possible steps to root out terror financing and money laundering".

Umar shared the government's vision to reform the country's economy with the diplomat, who informed the minister about the US efforts for regional security.

The finance minister said "such visits contribute to enhancing understanding of each other’s point of view on issues of bilateral significance".

Ambassador Wells had arrived in Pakistan earlier today on a one-day visit.

The Government of Pakistan official Twitter account had announced that Wells would discuss "Pakistan-US ties, regional situation and Afghan peace process".

The purpose of the meetings between Wells and Pakistani officials would be to follow up on Foreign Minister Qureshi's meeting with Pompeo earlier this month "with a view to further strengthen bilateral relations", the spokesperson had said yesterday.

Her visit comes ahead of a meeting of regional countries on Afghan peace, involving Iran, China, Pakistan, Tajikistan, Uzbe­kistan and Turkmenistan, which is being hosted by Moscow on Friday. A delegation of Taliban will also join the talks.

          Court to decide whether Aasia Bibi will be placed on ECL, says religious affairs minister       Cache   Translate Page      

Federal Minister for Religious Affairs and Interfaith Harmony Noorul Haq Qadri while speaking to the media on Tuesday said that the court would decide on the matter of placing Aasia Bibi's name on the Exit Control List (ECL).

The government and Tehreek-i-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) had on Friday reached an agreement after which the latter ended its three-day-long nationwide protests against the Supreme Court's acquittal last week of Asia Bibi who had been sentenced to death in 2010 for blasphemy.

One of the points both parties agreed on was that the government would "initiate the legal process" to place Aasia Bibi's name on the no-fly list.

When asked whether her name had been placed on the ECL, Qadri said: "If you read the agreement, you'll see it says that legal process will be undertaken to place her on the ECL."

"When there are cases in the Supreme Court and high court, the court itself says that so-and-so should be placed on the ECL. So we will follow that process."

"The TLP also said that some miscreants used their platform to damage public property and had behaved inappropriately. The state will take action against them," he added.

"We stand by the agreement, and it will be acted upon," Qadri asserted.

When asked whether the TLP would be banned, the minister said that there was no plan to ban the TLP.

"However, if someone's intentions or designs are in conflict with the national narrative and policies, then hopefully steps will be taken against them," he replied.

Qadri said that the role of the state and the government is like that of a mother, and the government's first responsibility is to restore peace.

The minister said that the government was formulating strategies in anticipation of similar situations in the future.

Qadri also commented on the recent death of Maulana Samiul Haq calling it a unfortunate incident, and described it as part of a greater conspiracy.

Chief of his own faction of the Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam, Maulana Samiul Haq was assassinated in his house in Bahria Town on November 2.

Qadri said that Prime Minister Imran Khan had given orders for an investigation into the murder of Maulana Sami while he was still on his trip in China.

          Govt, opposition come to blows in NA as PPP lawmaker terms deal with protesters a 'surrender'       Cache   Translate Page      

Members of the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) and the PPP on Monday exchanged hot words and nearly got into a physical altercation after the opposition criticised the agreement reached between the government and religiopolitical groups, who protested the acquittal of Asia Bibi for three days last week.

The fracas began after PPP MNA Shazia Marri termed the deal finalised between the government and protesters as a "surrender document", and in a taunting reference to Prime Minister Imran Khan's surname (Niazi), compared the agreement to the surrender document signed by Gen A.A.K. Niazi that led to the creation of Bangladesh in 1971.

Editorial: Another surrender

Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Ali Muhammad Khan objected to Marri's remarks and asked her to desist from ridiculing an entire clan or tribe for an individual's act. He said it was true that Gen Niazi had surrendered before Indian troops in 1971 but there are other Niazis who are "rendering great services and sacrifices for the nation".

Speaker Asad Qaiser interjected with a warning that no member would ridicule any tribe or clan in their speeches in the future.

However, when Marri insisted she was actually mentioning the name of Gen Niazi and that she would continue to do so, a number of treasury backbenchers stood up and lodged a noisy protest to prevent the PPP lawmaker from continuing her speech.

Meanwhile, a PPP MNA from Karachi, Syed Rafiullah, and PTI's MNA from Layyah Abdul Majeed Khan exchanged some hot words.

Getting angry over some remarks uttered by Khan, which could not be heard in the galleries due to noise, Rafiullah was seen charging towards the PTI MNA, but he was physically stopped by a number of lawmakers.

The speaker called the sergeants-at-arms to expel both members from the house. However, after failing to control the situation, he adjourned the sitting till Tuesday morning.

'Govt will always defend blasphemy laws'

Earlier, Federal Minister for Religious Affairs Noorul Haq Qadri defended the government's act of entering into a deal with Tehreek-i-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) leaders for ending their protest sit-ins over the Supreme Court verdict in Asia Bibi case.

Speaking during the session, the minister, who was a signatory to the agreement, said the government had not used force to disperse the protesters as per the desire of the opposition parties.

He said Prime Minister Khan was constantly in touch with them from China and had also instructed them to resolve the matter peacefully.

He recalled that the previous government of the PML-N had also signed a deal with the same protesters (during the Faizabad sit-in), but it was signed after three weeks and after its law minister resigned. In contrast, he said, the PTI government had succeeded in reaching an agreement in three days and without any resignation.

Qadri stressed that the PTI-led government "will always defend Section 295-C of blasphemy laws".

He said the speech of Prime Minister Khan about the establishment of writ of the state in the country was a policy and it would be implemented during its five-year tenure.

"There is a need to formulate a long-term strategy to avoid such a situation [in the future]," the minister said.

'Govt took a U-turn'

Former prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi had earlier demanded that some government minister should brief the House about the agreement signed by the government with the protesters. He alleged that the government had a non-serious attitude towards important national issues.

Abbasi claimed the government had itself pointed out a lack of quorum on Friday and "ran away from the parliament".

Rana Sanaullah, another PML-N leader, said the government had handled the protest in a non-serious manner.

Without naming TLP leaders, he said these religiopolitical leaders had all of a sudden entered the political arena even though "none of them had contested even the municipality election before". He said these people were brought into politics during the by-election in NA-120, when Kulsoom Nawaz was contesting the polls, and they were later allowed to field candidates from all constituencies in the July 25 elections.

When some PTI members interrupted and asked him to identify the forces who allegedly backed the religiopolitical groups, Sanaullah said they were the same elements "who brought people from south Punjab to Banigala and into the PTI fold".

He said the agreement signed with religious groups during the PML-N government's tenure had been "forced" on them and they had not done so willingly.

Sannaullah said the opposition had suggested not to use force only at three places — Faizabad in Islamabad, The Mall in Lahore, and in Karachi — as protesters had gathered at these places in large numbers.

He said the prime minister in his speech had categorically stated that the writ of the state would be established at all costs, but in the next three days the nation saw no state or government.

"After the prime minister's speech, the government took a U-turn and entered into a deal with the protesters," the PML-N leader said.

Sanaullah also asked the government to disclose the whereabouts of Asia Bibi. "Has Asia Bibi been released as per the SC order or is she still in jail as per the agreement [with protesters]?" he asked.

He said the government had started registering cases against the protesters and there was a fear that innocent people could also be picked up in the drive.

'Opposition did not take political advantage of protests'

Earlier in the evening, Leader of the Opposition Shahbaz Sharif told PML-N lawmakers that the opposition had "not tried to take political advantage" during the crisis-like situation that had resulted from religious groups' countrywide protests against the acquittal of Asia Bibi last week.

Sharif, who is currently in the custody of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB), was chairing a meeting of PML-N's parliamentary party at the Parliament House.

The PML-N president deferred his address to the National Assembly today and is now expected to address the House tomorrow.

According to a series of tweets by the PML-N, Sharif during the meeting briefed party members on the steps that helped in improving the law and order situation in the country during the past few days.

Also read: Fawad Chaudhry thanks PPP, PML-N for 'maturity' in supporting govt over handling of protests

"[Sharif] briefed party members on the positive role played by the opposition during recent sit-ins," the party said in a tweet.

He claimed that although the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) had exploited occasions like these for "political gains", the current opposition prioritised national interest instead of doing politics on the issue.

The PML-N president was also quoted as saying that the PTI government had gained nothing from Prime Minister Imran Khan's visit to China this week.

In a statement issued, PML-N spokesperson Marriyum Aurangzeb said the meeting had taken stock of the overall political, economic and internal security situation of the country and deliberated upon a strategy for the future.

The PML-N members also criticised as an "unparliamentary act" the adjournment of the session on Friday after a lawmaker pointed out lack of quorum five minutes after it started.

"The way the government ended the session in such a sensitive situation by pointing out the [lack of] quorum shows the government lacks the ability and courage to deal with challenges," the statement read.

The adjournment of Friday's NA session considerably irked the opposition, which had already expressed its disappointment a day earlier over Prime Minister Khan's absence from the Lower House at a time when the country was facing nationwide protests by religious groups.

Soon after a recitation from the Holy Quran, Agha Hassan of the Balochistan National Party (Mengal) had pointed out lack of quorum. Deputy Speaker Qasim Khan Suri subsequently ordered a head count and then adjourned the session till Monday after finding that the quorum was not complete.

The opposition later used the adjournment of the assembly as a pretext to refuse a meeting with a government delegation that had requested bipartisan support for a parliamentary resolution against the protesters.

'No economic vision'

The meeting expressed concerns over the state of the economy, saying the government has "no economic vision or strategy" to deal with the crisis-like situation.

"The increasing economic instability and uncertainty could have... serious implications for the national security," the party said.

"Economic, agricultural, commercial and industrial activities are witnessing gradual decline which could become the harbinger of an economic disaster."

It was decided during the meeting that the PML-N will issue a fact sheet on the PTI government's performance of first 100 days and "inform the people about the details of the current government's failures".

The meeting also condemned complaints and reports of media censorship in the country, saying: "The PML-N considers freedom of press an essential pre-requisite to strengthen democracy."

Shahbaz's arrival

Ahead of Monday's session that began at 5pm, a NAB team brought Shahbaz to Parliament House, where he held a meeting with former NA speaker Ayaz Sadiq, PML-N's Sindh representative Shah Muhammad Shah and MNA Kheal Das regarding matters related to the party's reorganisation across the country.

According to PML-N party sources, Sharif also met his lawyer Amjad Pervaiz with his team during which the ongoing NAB cases against him were discussed. The PML-N president, whose physical remand is to end day after tomorrow, consulted his lawyer about their future strategy.

          Religious fundamentalism weakens Pakistan’s bargaining power with China      Cache   Translate Page      
While Pakistan’s prime minister, Imran Khan, was on his first official visit to China, major cities in Pakistan were at a standstill due to anti-blasphemy protests by supporters of religious fundamentalists. Karachi, Pakistan’s largest city and economic capital, was paralysed as roads were blocked at more than 30 spots. In the capital, Islamabad, violent protesters set fire to cars and trucks.

          Good Morning, News: Wheeler's Protest Ordinance Considered, Aliens Are (Maybe) Real, and Go Vote!      Cache   Translate Page      
by Blair Stenvick

Stay up to date on Portland news and politics. Looking for fun? Here are the best Things to Do in Portland today.

MAIA BOAKYE

Happy Election Day! Procrastinators: you still have until 8 pm to turn in your ballot; here are our endorsements. If 2016 left you too vulnerable to watch election results alone, check out our list of election watch parties.

The Final Countdown: Kate Brown and Knute Buehler traversed the state yesterday for one final day of campaigning in the closest governor’s race Oregon has seen in decades. The Cook Political Report is officially calling this race a toss-up, so what happens tonight is anyone’s guess.

Out-Foxed: Trump loves a rally, and last night he brought his friends with him. Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Jeanine Pirro all joined him onstage last night to rev up the crowd in Missouri before the midterms. “All those people in the back are fake news,” Hannity told the MAGA mob. Cool.

Speaking of Racists and Fox News: CNN, NBC, Facebook, and even Fox News refused to air a Trump campaign ad for being too obviously racist. The 30-second ad “featured courtroom video of a Mexican citizen convicted in the 2014 killings of two police officers, juxtaposed with scenes of a US-bound caravan of Central American migrants and refugees.”

Last in the Nation: If Louisiana votes yes on its Proposition 2 today, Oregon will be the only state left in the country where you could be convicted of a felony without a unanimous jury.

Methinks He Doth Protest Too Much: The Portland City Council will consider Mayor Ted Wheeler’s proposed new protest ordinance at a Thursday meeting. The ordinance would give the Police Commissioner “the authority to restrict where groups who have clashed in the past may gather and demonstrate.”

The ordinance has faced harsh criticism from many, including the ACLU of Oregon, for being unconstitutional. That has kept Wheeler busy defending it on Twitter:

First Grifter: Chinese regulators granted Ivanka Trump approval for 16 trademark applications. The trademarks will give her a presence in a wide range of Chinese markets, including “senior homes and lightning diffusing machines; for batteries, wedding gowns and sausage casings” – and also voting machines.

HARVARD WANTS TO BELIEVE: Researchers at the Harvard Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics think that aliens might have tried to visit Earth last year in a cigar-shaped spacecraft. They have nicknamed the object “Oumuamua,” which translates to “a messenger that reaches out from the distant past" in Hawaiian.


Our new alien overlords might soon render democracy obsolete—but until that happens, get out there and vote!

          Worst malware and threat actors of 2018 so far      Cache   Translate Page      

What’s the worst malware so far into 2018? The worst botnets and banking trojans, according to Webroot, were Emotet, Trickbot, and Zeus Panda. Crysis/Dharma, GandCrab, and SamSam were the worst among ransomware. The top three in cryptomining/cryptojacking were GhostMiner, Wanna Mine, and Coinhive.

And included in the list of top 10 threat actors so far this year, we find Lazarus Group, Sofacy and MuddyWater coming in the top three spots, according to AlienVault. Lazarus Group took the top spot from Sofacy this year. The reported locations for the top 10 threat actors are North Korea, with two groups; Russia, with three groups; Iran, with two groups; China, with two groups; and India, with one. Microsoft Office was the most exploited application, but Adobe Flash, WebLogic, Microsoft Windows, Drupal and GPON routers were also listed in the top 10.

In April of 2015, IT staffers within the United States Office of Personnel Management (OPM), the agency that manages the government's civilian workforce, discovered that some of its personnel files had been hacked.

The OPM breach led to a Congressional investigation and the resignation of top OPM executives, and its full implications—for national security, and for the privacy of those whose records were stolen—are still not entirely clear.

          U.S. allows eight importers to keep buying Iran oil for now      Cache   Translate Page      
The United States said on Friday it will temporarily allow eight importers to keep buying Iranian oil when it re-imposes sanctions on Monday to try to force Iran to curb its nuclear, missile and regional activities. U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who announced the decision, did not name the eight, which he referred to as "jurisdictions," a term that might include importers such as Taiwan which the United States does not regard as a country. Having abandoned the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, U.S. President Donald Trump is trying to cripple Iran’s oil-dependent economy and force Tehran to quash not only its nuclear ambitions and its ballistic missile program but its support for militant proxies in Syria, Yemen, Lebanon and other parts of the Middle East. On Twitter, in a message designed to emphasize his "maximum pressure" policy toward Iran, Trump included a photograph of himself modeled on a entertainment industry poster with the headline: "Sanctions are coming November 5."

Apple, the first ever U.S. company to be valued at $1 trillion, is no longer worth $1 trillion.

News of Apple’s demotion — now once again slumming it as one of the companies worth only hundreds of billions of dollars — came as the result of a domino effect of negative press for the company. Already feeling market pressure after announcing a change to how the company was going to report quarterly sales, a new report delivering bad news related to the latest iPhone has extended those woes.

Trump has been so harassed by the Establishment that he is having trouble thinking straight I never cease to be amazed at the insouciance of Americans.

If Trump was the Establishment's candidate, why has the Establishment spent two years trying to destroy him? The failure to put two and two together is extraordinary. Trump declared war on the Establishment throughout the presidential campaign and in his inaugural address. As I wrote at the time, Trump vastly over-estimates the power of the president. He expected the Establishment, like his employees, to jump to his will, and he did not know Washington or who to appoint to support his goals. He has been totally defeated in his intention to normalize relations with Russia. Instead, we are faced with both Russia and China preparing for war. In other words, the same outcome that Hillary would have achieved.

          BTCC Announces the "Indefinite" Closure of Its Mining Pool      Cache   Translate Page      
BTCC Mining Pool

BTCC will be shutting down its mining pool by the end of the month.

According to a recent notice made by the Hong Kong-based exchange, BTCC will deactivate its mining pool servers on November 15, 2018, and cease all operations entirely come November 30.

Citing “business adjustments,” the notice was generally vague about the exact reason for this particular closure. Having started operations in 2014, the mining pool is one of the oldest in the space, while BTCC itself is China’s oldest crypto exchange.

BTCC’s mining pool was one of the world’s more prominent mining pools as recently as June of 2018, but, in the latter half of the year, its hashrate has steadily decreased. BTCC has requested that all current miners “complete the power switch by November 15th” and has stated that they will eventually “release the profits of all miners in time.”

It is unclear at this time what impact this shutdown will have on the regular operations of BTCC’s exchange. The announcement did not go into any specific detail on their other functions, and they have not made any similar announcements about the functionality of the company.

Still, the notice for the shutdown did end on a hopeful note, as the exchange proclaimed, “We firmly believe that the digital encryption assets and blockchain industry represented by Bitcoin will continue to develop and improve!” The announcement even concluded with an optimistic final farewell to the BTCC community that said, “We will see you again!”

At the time of publication, BTCC has not responded to Bitcoin Magazine’s request for comment.

          China's Central Bank Wants to Put the Damper on Airdrops: Report      Cache   Translate Page      
airdrop china

The People's Bank of China (PBoC), China's central bank, has its eyes on cryptocurrency companies that run airdrop campaigns in the country.

In its most recent financial stability report for 2018, which was published on Friday, November 3, 2018, the bank said there has been a surge in the number of "disguised" Initial Coin Offerings (ICO), including the free distribution of crypto tokens through airdrops, despite its effort to clamp down on their activities.

Based on the report, the bank states that the companies running token giveaways are evading China’s blanket ban on ICOs by issuing free tokens to the investor, while keeping a large chunk of the total supply for speculation on a crypto exchange, where speculation would drive the prices up so they can profit.

Last year, the central bank banned ICOs, calling them "illegal fundraising" that were targeting innocent investors. According to the PBoC report, before the ban took effect, 65 ICOs had been completed up until July 18, 2017, while only five were launched before 2017. This sudden jump also attracted over 105,000 investors who contributed a total of about 2.6 billion yuan ($377.3 million), a figure, the PBoC states, accounted for 20 percent of the total ICO funding raised globally by blockchain startups.

The central bank also made its concerns known about crypto firms who had moved their operations overseas but were using local agents to invest on behalf of domestic investors in China. The vice governor of the PBoC had warned foreign ICOs targeting Chinese investors at a separate event, earlier this year. He had stated at the time:

"Any new financial product or phenomenon that is not authorized under the existing legal framework, we will crush them as soon as they dare to surface."

Not one to rest on its laurels, the PBoC said it would continue to monitor the crypto industry, coordinating with other agencies to help safeguard and protect the interest of investors.

The bank's toughened stance with cryptocurrency began in 2013, where it published the “Notice on Precautions Against the Risks of Bitcoin,”where bitcoin was not deemed to be legal tender in China—to the most recent ban on ICOs in 2017.

Since then, there has been an onslaught of anti-crypto measures in the country. Earlier this year, commercial venues were banned from hosting crypto events, WeChat blocked some high profile blockchain related accounts, while Tencent, Baidu and Alibaba issued statements announcing restrictions put in place to limit crypto-related activities on their platforms.

          Trump and Scott Walker Championed an 'Absolute Fraud': The GOP's Foxconn Boondoggle Is Revealed as a Government-Funded Scam      Cache   Translate Page      
There's no end to the deception.

Wisconsin's Koch-funded Republican Gov. Scott Walker lavished the Taiwanese electronics giant Foxconn with over four billion in taxpayer subsidies last year in a deal that he claimed would create 13,000 jobs in the state, but that agreement is increasingly looking like a massive con-job amid new reports on Tuesday that Foxconn is planning to bring in Chinese workers to fill spots that the governor insisted would be filled by Wisconsinites.

"If Foxconn has to import Chinese engineers to Wisconsin, that would be yet another insult to Wisconsin taxpayers," Greg LeRoy, executive director of Good Jobs First, told Common Dreams. "This is already The Great Disappearing Jobs Deal of recent U.S. history. It's also the biggest mega-subsidy deal ever given to a foreign-based company. How tone-deaf would it be if the best-paid jobs don't even go to Wisconsin taxpayers?"

According to the Wall Street Journal, Foxconn "is considering bringing in personnel from China to help staff a large facility under construction in southern Wisconsin as it struggles to find engineers and other workers in one of the tightest labor markets in the U.S."

President Donald Trump and outgoing House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) have both openly championed the Foxconn agreement as a boon for Wisconsin workers. Last year, Trump took credit for convincing Foxconn to build a factory in Wisconsin.

"The company, the Taiwanese supplier to Apple Inc., has been trying to tap Chinese engineers through internal transfers to supplement staffing for the Wisconsin plant," the Journal reported, citing anonymous sources familiar with the matter. "Foxconn Chairman Terry Gou is looking to company engineers in China to transfer."

While Foxconn issued a statement denying the Journal's reporting, critics of Walker—who is locked in an extremely close race with Democratic challenger Tony Evers—were quick to highlight the company's alleged plans as further evidence that the governor's "deal" with the Taiwanese multinational has been a massive fraud from the start:

With Walker ensnared in what CNN described this week as his "toughest race yet," the Foxconn deal is increasingly becoming a political liability that could cost him the governor's mansion in Tuesday's midterm elections.

As the New Yorker's Dan Kaufman noted in a detailed look at the Foxconn deal over the weekend, the agreement—which is rapidly declining in popularity among Wisconsin voters—includes "taxpayer subsidies to the company totaling more than $4.5 billion, the largest subsidy for a foreign corporation in American history."

"Since Wisconsin already exempts manufacturing companies from paying taxes, Foxconn, which generated a hundred and fifty-eight billion dollars in revenue last year, will receive much of this subsidy in direct cash payments from taxpayers," Kaufman observes. "Depending on how many jobs are actually created, taxpayers will be paying between two hundred and twenty thousand dollars and more than a million dollars per job."

In an op-ed for The Progressive last year, Wisconsin ironworker and Democratic House candidate Randy Bryce—AKA "The Iron Stache"—declared, "We deserve better than corporate boondoggles like Foxconn, and our government’s leadership needs to stand on the side of workers."

Echoing this sentiment in a tweet on Tuesday as voters headed to the polls, the advocacy group People for Bernie tweeted, "Don't let Scott Walker and his billionaire cronies steal an election."

          A Catastrophic CIA Failure      Cache   Translate Page      
Michael Walsh wants us to understand that the Obama administration was in charge of the CIA and national security when intelligence operatives around the world were exposed, compromised and even murdered.

No one cares about the story because the story exposes the rank dereliction of the Obama administration and because it is too complicated for most people to understand.

Walsh points the finger of blame:

A rollup of networks across the world -- an event that began in Iran, where the Obama administration would soon enough be negotiating its much sought-after "nuclear deal framework" -- and ended with numerous deaths is the kind of thing of which intelligence nightmares and national-security disasters are made. One's first instinct is to look back and see who was CIA director during that period: Leon Panetta (Feb. 2009-June 2011); Michael Morell (acting director, July-Sept. 2011); David Petraeus (Sept. 2011-Nov. 2012); Morell again (acting, Nov. 2012-March 2013; and finally John Brennan, who served out the remainder of the Obama administration.

The story was reported by Yahoo! News. Note that everyone familiar with the events describe them as a catastrophic failure:

In 2013, hundreds of CIA officers — many working nonstop for weeks — scrambled to contain a disaster of global proportions: a compromise of the agency’s internet-based covert communications system used to interact with its informants in dark corners around the world. Teams of CIA experts worked feverishly to take down and reconfigure the websites secretly used for these communications; others managed operations to quickly spirit assets to safety and oversaw other forms of triage.

“When this was going on, it was all that mattered,” said one former intelligence community official. The situation was “catastrophic,” said another former senior intelligence official.

It was about the websites that CIA used to communicate with operatives around the world.

From around 2009 to 2013, the U.S. intelligence community experienced crippling intelligence failures related to the secret internet-based communications system, a key means for remote messaging between CIA officers and their sources on the ground worldwide. The previously unreported global problem originated in Iran and spiderwebbed to other countries, and was left unrepaired — despite warnings about what was happening — until more than two dozen sources died in China in 2011 and 2012 as a result, according to 11 former intelligence and national security officials.

CIA knew it and did nothing to repair the problem:

More than just a question of a single failure, the fiasco illustrates a breakdown that was never properly addressed. The government’s inability to address the communication system’s insecurities until after sources were rolled up in China was disastrous. “We’re still dealing with the fallout,” said one former national security official. “Dozens of people around the world were killed because of this.”

It all began in 2009:

One of the largest intelligence failures of the past decade started in Iran in 2009, when the Obama administration announced the discovery of a secret Iranian underground enrichment facility — part of Iran’s headlong drive for nuclear weapons. Angered about the breach, the Iranians went on a mole hunt, looking for foreign spies, said one former senior intelligence official.

The mole hunt wasn’t hard, in large part, because the communications system the CIA was using to communicate with agents was flawed. Former U.S. officials said the internet-based platform, which was first used in war zones in the Middle East, was not built to withstand the sophisticated counterintelligence efforts of a state actor like China or Iran. “It was never meant to be used long term for people to talk to sources,” said one former official. “The issue was that it was working well for too long, with too many people. But it was an elementary system.”

But a sense of confidence in the system kept it in operation far longer than was safe or advisable, said former officials. The CIA’s directorate of science and technology, which is responsible for the secure communications system, “says, ‘our s***’s impregnable,’ but it’s obviously not,” said one former official.

CIA officials knew about the problem and chose not to believe it, until Iran started arresting and executing CIA spies:

By 2010, however, it appears that Iran had begun to identify CIA agents. And by 2011,  Iranian authorities dismantled a CIA spy network in that country, said seven former U.S. intelligence officials. (Indeed, in May 2011, Iranian intelligence officials announced publicly that they had broken up a ring of 30 CIA spies; U.S. officials later confirmed the breach to ABC News, which also reported on a potential compromise to the communications system.)

Iran executed some of the CIA informants and imprisoned others in an intelligence setback that one of the former officials described as “incredibly damaging.” The CIA successfully exfiltrated some of its Iranian sources, said former officials.

At a time when the Obama administration was in full appeasement mode toward Iran, it had no good intelligence from inside the country:

The Iranian compromise led to significantly fewer CIA agents being killed than in China, according to former officials. Still, the events there hampered the CIA’s capacity to collect intelligence in Iran at a critical time, just as Tehran was forging ahead with its nuclear program.

It was an unmitigated catastrophe.

But the events in Iran were not self-contained; they coincided roughly with a similar debacle in China in 2011 and 2012, where authorities rounded up and executed around 30 agents working for the U.S. (the New York Times first reported the extirpation of the CIA’s China sources in May 2017).

U.S. officials believe that Chinese intelligence obtained physical access to the transitional, or temporary, secret communications system used by the CIA to correspond with new, unvetted sources — and broke through the firewall separating it from the main covert communications system, compromising the CIA’s entire asset network in that country, Foreign Policy reported earlier this year.

          Trump and Scott Walker Championed an 'Absolute Fraud': The GOP's Foxconn Boondoggle Is Revealed as a Government-Funded Scam      Cache   Translate Page      
There's no end to the deception.

Wisconsin's Koch-funded Republican Gov. Scott Walker lavished the Taiwanese electronics giant Foxconn with over four billion in taxpayer subsidies last year in a deal that he claimed would create 13,000 jobs in the state, but that agreement is increasingly looking like a massive con-job amid new reports on Tuesday that Foxconn is planning to bring in Chinese workers to fill spots that the governor insisted would be filled by Wisconsinites.

"If Foxconn has to import Chinese engineers to Wisconsin, that would be yet another insult to Wisconsin taxpayers," Greg LeRoy, executive director of Good Jobs First, told Common Dreams. "This is already The Great Disappearing Jobs Deal of recent U.S. history. It's also the biggest mega-subsidy deal ever given to a foreign-based company. How tone-deaf would it be if the best-paid jobs don't even go to Wisconsin taxpayers?"

According to the Wall Street Journal, Foxconn "is considering bringing in personnel from China to help staff a large facility under construction in southern Wisconsin as it struggles to find engineers and other workers in one of the tightest labor markets in the U.S."

President Donald Trump and outgoing House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) have both openly championed the Foxconn agreement as a boon for Wisconsin workers. Last year, Trump took credit for convincing Foxconn to build a factory in Wisconsin.

"The company, the Taiwanese supplier to Apple Inc., has been trying to tap Chinese engineers through internal transfers to supplement staffing for the Wisconsin plant," the Journal reported, citing anonymous sources familiar with the matter. "Foxconn Chairman Terry Gou is looking to company engineers in China to transfer."

While Foxconn issued a statement denying the Journal's reporting, critics of Walker—who is locked in an extremely close race with Democratic challenger Tony Evers—were quick to highlight the company's alleged plans as further evidence that the governor's "deal" with the Taiwanese multinational has been a massive fraud from the start:

With Walker ensnared in what CNN described this week as his "toughest race yet," the Foxconn deal is increasingly becoming a political liability that could cost him the governor's mansion in Tuesday's midterm elections.

As the New Yorker's Dan Kaufman noted in a detailed look at the Foxconn deal over the weekend, the agreement—which is rapidly declining in popularity among Wisconsin voters—includes "taxpayer subsidies to the company totaling more than $4.5 billion, the largest subsidy for a foreign corporation in American history."

"Since Wisconsin already exempts manufacturing companies from paying taxes, Foxconn, which generated a hundred and fifty-eight billion dollars in revenue last year, will receive much of this subsidy in direct cash payments from taxpayers," Kaufman observes. "Depending on how many jobs are actually created, taxpayers will be paying between two hundred and twenty thousand dollars and more than a million dollars per job."

In an op-ed for The Progressive last year, Wisconsin ironworker and Democratic House candidate Randy Bryce—AKA "The Iron Stache"—declared, "We deserve better than corporate boondoggles like Foxconn, and our government’s leadership needs to stand on the side of workers."

Echoing this sentiment in a tweet on Tuesday as voters headed to the polls, the advocacy group People for Bernie tweeted, "Don't let Scott Walker and his billionaire cronies steal an election."

          Pulmonary Drug Delivery Market Size to Witness a CAGR Growth of 3.0% Through 2026      Cache   Translate Page      

Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/06/2018 -- Global Pulmonary Drug Delivery Devices Market - Snapshot

Pulmonary drug delivery devices are devices that hold medicine, which is taken by inhaling (breathing). These devices can provide the drug/ medicine in the form of mist or powder, which is effective to treat pulmonary indications such as asthma, COPD, and cystic fibrosis.

The global pulmonary drug delivery devices market was valued at approximately US$ 35,000 Mn in 2017. It is anticipated to reach a value of nearly US$ 46,000 Mn by 2026, expanding at a CAGR of about 3.0% from 2018 to 2026. Increase in prevalence and incidence of respiratory diseases, increasing population of smokers, rise in prescription of combination therapies, digitalization of respiratory inhaler devices, increase in geriatric population, high unmet needs, high R&D in asthma and COPD treatment, and rise in number of awareness programs are likely to drive the global pulmonary drug delivery devices market during the forecast period.

However, patent expiry of blockbuster brands, regulatory hurdles, low cost generic competition, and lack of skilled professionals are anticipated to restrain the global pulmonary drug delivery devices market in the near future. However, emerging economies such as India, China, Brazil, Russia, Mexico, and South Africa offer immense opportunities to the pulmonary drug market. Major reasons include large number of underserved patients, rise in proportion of urban population, and insurance policies. Moreover, governments of countries mentioned above have taken initiatives to educate the people regarding awareness about pulmonary (respiratory) diseases such as asthma, PAH, COPD, and management of the diseases.

Request for Sample Copy of Report @ https://www.transparencymarketresearch.com/sample/sample.php?flag=S&rep_id=48993

The global pulmonary drug delivery devices market has witnessed various technological advancements. Examples of recent developments in the field are introduction of QVAR RediHaler inhalation aerosol in the U.S. for treatment of asthma in patients who are 4 years older or above by Teva Pharmaceuticals, in February 2018, and introduction of inhalation powder (AirDuo RespiClick) and its generic product for the treatment of asthma patients (older than 12 years) by Teva Pharmaceuticals, in April 2017. Apart from Teva, Roche launched Xolair for treatment of asthma for children in the U.S, in August 2017. This has helped the company improve its overall work efficiency.

The global pulmonary drug delivery devices market has been segmented in terms of product, distribution channel, application, and region. In terms of product, the global pulmonary drug delivery devices market has been classified into dry powder inhalers, metered dose inhalers, and nebulizers. Furthermore, the dry powder inhalers segment has been sub-segmented into single dose inhalers and multi-dose inhalers, while the metered dose inhalers segment has been split into manually-actuated pressurized inhaler and breath-actuated pressurized inhaler.

Additionally, the nebulizers segment has been further sub-segmented into jet nebulizers, ultrasonic wave nebulizers, and vibrating mesh nebulizers. The dry powder inhaler segment is likely to maintain its dominance of the market during the forecast period due to uniform distribution of the drug, small dose variation, good flow ability, adequate physical stability in the device before usage, and good performance in terms of emitted dose and fine particle fraction.

In terms of application, the global pulmonary drug delivery devices market has been segregated into asthma, COPD, cystic fibrosis, and others. However, the robust pipeline for asthma and COPD drugs by key players is expected to boost the asthma segment during the forecast period.

In terms of distribution channel, the global pulmonary drug delivery devices market has been bifurcated into retail pharmacies, hospital pharmacies, and e-commerce. Increasing home health care services and patients who are unable to visit hospitals regularly are likely to drive the retail pharmacies segment in the near future.

Request Report Brochure @ https://www.transparencymarketresearch.com/sample/sample.php?flag=B&rep_id=48993

North America and Europe are anticipated to be dominant markets for pulmonary drug delivery devices. High prevalence of diseases and well-established health care infrastructure that enables proper diagnosis of diseases such as cystic fibrosis and COPD contribute to the high market share held by these regions.

Prevalence of diseases such as cystic fibrosis, which is particularly common among Caucasians of Northern European descent and among Hispanics and American Indians, propels the pulmonary drug delivery devices market Europe. Asia Pacific is expected to be the highly attractive market, particularly for generics as compared to branded pulmonary drugs and delivery devices. Unmet medical needs and inadequate health care facilities in rural areas and high percent of low and middle income groups restrain the market in Asia Pacific

Key companies operating in the global pulmonary drug delivery devices market and profiled in the report include GlaxoSmithKline plc, Boehringer Ingelheim GmbH, AstraZeneca plc, Koninklijke Philips N.V., 3M Healthcare, Omron Corporation, F. Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd., Novartis AG, Merck & Co., Inc., Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd., MannKind Corporation, Mylan N.V., Sunovion Pharmaceuticals, Inc., PARI GmbH, and Nypro Healthcare Inc.

          Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitors Market Size to Expand Lucratively During the Forecast Period      Cache   Translate Page      

Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/06/2018 -- Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitors Market - Snapshot

The global tyrosine kinase inhibitors market is expanding owing to high prevalence and increase in incidence of cancer across the globe. The global tyrosine kinase inhibitors market was valued at more than US$ 18.0 Bn in 2017 and is projected to surpass US$ 19.0 Bn by 2026, expanding at a negative compound annual growth rate (CAGR) during the forecast period. The global market is witnessing expansion at a relatively higher growth rate owing to increasing expenditure on health care and high prevalence and increase in incidence of cancer across the globe.

Cancer is the unregulated growth of body cells due to genetic mutations in its differentiation regulatory genes. Tyrosine kinases are enzymes that signal the cell differentiation cycle, mutation in their expression genes leads to their over expression, which results in uncontrolled proliferation of cells to form tumors. Tyrosine kinase inhibitors are small molecules that bind to the receptor site of the kinase enzyme available at cell surface. This binding blocks the phosphorylation by blocking adenosine tri-phosphate (ATP) biding to the receptor. Based on type of kinase receptors being targeted, tyrosine kinase inhibitors can be classified into BCR-ABL TKIs, EGFR TKIs, VEGFR TKIs, Janus Kinase Inhibitors, BTK inhibitors.

Request for Sample Copy of Report @ https://www.transparencymarketresearch.com/sample/sample.php?flag=S&rep_id=40667

Tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) aid patients suffering from different cancer diseases. Tyrosine kinase inhibitors were accepted largely due to specificity and efficacy and the benefits these offer over chemotherapy and radiotherapy. High prevalence and incidence rates of cancer diseases such as chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), lung cancer, breast cancer, and renal cell cancer, and expanding indications of existing and pipeline on TKIs have expanded the indication areas of existing and pipeline on tyrosine kinase inhibitors in order to address various unmet needs and extend the product lifecycle.

These factors, collectively, are projected to drive the global tyrosine kinase inhibitors market in the near future. Furthermore, rise in awareness about cancer diagnosis and treatment and surge in adoption in underdeveloped and developing markets are key factors that are estimated to fuel the tyrosine kinase inhibitors market in the near future.

The global tyrosine kinase inhibitors market has been broadly segmented based on product, application, distribution channel, and region. In terms of product, the global market has been classified into BCR-ABL tyrosine kinase inhibitor, epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) tyrosine kinase inhibitors, vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGFR) tyrosine kinase inhibitors, and other tyrosine kinase inhibitors. BCR-ABL tyrosine kinase inhibitors were one of the first approved TKIs for cancer treatment. Their wide acceptance and indications have contributed to their significant share in the global market.

VEGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitors are projected to be a highly promising class of TKIs. Several companies have developed their VEGFR TKIs drugs with features of multi kinase receptor inhibition. These factors are likely to augment the segment by the end of 2026. In terms of application, lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths in the world. TKIs such as EGFR, ALK, and HGFR have been in use for treating lung cancers. Increase in incidence of lung cancer is likely to propel the segment.

In terms of distribution channel, the global tyrosine kinase inhibitors market has been segregated into hospital pharmacies, independent pharmacies, and online pharmacies. The hospital pharmacies segment is projected to account for a prominent share of the market. International and regional pharmacy service providers are expanding their operations across the regions, this is attributed to strong infrastructure network for distribution, thereby contributing to the dominant share held by the independent pharmacies segment of the global tyrosine kinase inhibitors market.

Consolidation among independent pharmacies and their expanding operations across regions are likely to propel the independent pharmacies segment in the global market. Increase in adoption of e-commerce and convenience offered by online pharmacies are expected to drive the adoption of online pharmacies in developed markets.

In terms of region, the global tyrosine kinase inhibitors market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. North America dominated the global market; however, it is projected to gain market share by the end of 2026. The market in North America is primarily driven by the high cost of TKIs and high health care expenditure, which have contributed to the leading share held by North America. Furthermore, demand for advanced treatment options such as targeted therapies has contributed to the leading share held by the region.

Request Report Brochure @ https://www.transparencymarketresearch.com/sample/sample.php?flag=B&rep_id=40667

Recent patent expiry of several blockbuster TKIs has negatively impacted the market in North America. However, the introduction of new TKIs, such as JAK TKIs, multi-targeted TKIs, ALT TKIs, and others has compensated for the impact, which is projected to fuel the TKIs market in North America during the forecast period. The tyrosine kinase inhibitors market in Asia Pacific is projected to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period. Rest of Asia Pacific countries dominated the tyrosine kinase inhibitors market in Asia Pacific, while the market in China and India is estimated to expand at a significant CAGR during the forecast period.

Companies such as Novartis AG, Bristol-Myers Squibb Company, Pfizer Inc., and Johnson & Johnson accounted for a major share of the global tyrosine kinase inhibitors market in 2017. In May 2018, Pfizer's XALKORI (crizotinib) received FDA breakthrough therapy designation in two new indications. This is expected to increase the company's therapy segment research in the near future. Other global players operating in the market include AstraZeneca Plc, Bayer AG, Boehringer Ingelheim International GmbH, F. Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd., , Eisai Co., Ltd., and Eurofarma Laboratorios S/A, who are focused on strategic acquisitions and collaborations with parallel companies in order to improve and strengthen their geographic presence in the international market.

          Pigments Market New Business Opportunities & Investment Research Report: 2026      Cache   Translate Page      

Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/06/2018 -- Pigments is a group of compounds that are intensely colored and are employed to impart color to other materials. They absorb the light of selective wavelength and then emit various colors through the process of reflection or transmission. Pigments are used to improve the appearance of a substrate on which they are used or impart color to the medium in which they are used. Pigments can be organic or inorganic. Organic pigments are based on carbon chains and carbon rings. However, they can also contain metallic elements that help stabilize properties of the organic component. Inorganic pigments are usually metallic salts precipitated from solutions. The particle size of inorganic pigments is larger than that of organic pigments. Pigments can impart a versatile range of colors to paints, coatings, plastics, inks, etc. while improving their aesthetic properties. These help enhance properties such as opacity, hiding power, light and weather fastness, heat stability, and tinting strength.

          Sodium Tripolyphosphate Market to Receive Overwhelming Hike in Revenues by 2026      Cache   Translate Page      

Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/06/2018 -- Sodium tripolyphosphate (STPP) is an inorganic compound produced by heating a mixture of monosodium phosphate and disodium phosphate. Sodium tripolyphosphate is used as food preservative and emulsifier for various packed foods such as meats, seafood, poultry, and animal feeds. Additionally, Sodium tripolyphosphate is also as water softener in detergents. Sodium tripolyphosphate is also employed as a cleaning agent in anticorrosion pigments, textiles, leather tanning, metal treatment, ceramic tiles, and water treatment.

Global Sodium Tripolyphosphate Market: Key Segments

The global Sodium tripolyphosphate market can be segmented based on grade and formulation. In terms of grade, the Sodium tripolyphosphate market can be segregated into anhydrous grade and hydrate grade. Anhydrous grade contains 56.5% of phosphorous pentaoxide (P2O5), while hydrate grade contains 46.5% to 47.5% of phosphorous pentaoxide (P2O5). Based on formulation, the market can be divided into gels, tablet, liquid, and dry powder. The dry powder segment dominates the Sodium tripolyphosphate market due to the rise in demand for surface cleaners, household and industrial detergents. Technological advancement in industrial detergents and the increasing usage of sodium tripolyphosphate as cleaning and dispersing agent in other applications such as ceramic processing, toothpaste, flame retardant, and rubber manufacturing are propelling the demand for odium tripolyphosphate during the forecast period.

Global Sodium Tripolyphosphate Market: Drivers & Restraints

Rise in demand for packaged food and food additives across the globe is one of the major factors driving the demand for sodium tripolyphosphate. Sodium tripolyphosphate raises the pH level and also increases the water holding capacity of packaged food when used as food preservative. Increase in consumption of household cleaning agents and growth in laundry technologies are other factors expected to boost the global sodium tripolyphosphatemarket during the forecast period. Limited concentration of sodium tripolyphosphate in various applications due to the rise in health concerns over high level of phosphates is anticipated to restrain the Sodium tripolyphosphate market during the forecast period. Additionally, availability of other substitutes and implementation of stringent regulations on phosphate-based detergents are estimated to adversely affect the sodium tripolyphosphate market in the near future. However, trending applications of sodium tripolyphosphate in other application areas – sodium tripolyphosphate is used in the production of animal feed, herbicides, and poultry applications – are providing lucrative opportunities to manufacturers operating in the sodium tripolyphosphate market. Sodium tripolyphosphate is gaining popularity in the agriculture sector, as it inhibits the growth of harmful micro-organisms and bacteria.

Global Sodium Tripolyphosphate Market: Regional Outlook

In terms of region, the global sodium tripolyphosphate market can be segregated into North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. In terms of consumption, Asia Pacific is a leading region of the Sodium tripolyphosphate market, followed by North America. In Asia Pacific, China is a major revenue generating country of the Sodium tripolyphosphate market, led by the increase in production and export activities. Expansion in end-user industries in developing economies of Asia Pacific such as India, and ASEAN is also projected to propel the demand for Sodium tripolyphosphate in the region during the forecast period. The U.S. is a leading consumer of Sodium tripolyphosphate in North America; however,

its restricted usage in various applications is restricting the demand in the country. The Sodium tripolyphosphate market in Europe has been recording stagnant growth since the last few years. This can be primarily ascribed to the implementation of stringent regulations on phosphate detergents by the European Union due to its environmentally hazardous nature. Additionally, STPP is facing stiff competition from counterparts such as Zeolite, which has emerged as substitute. This is also hampering the sodium tripolyphosphate market in the region. The sodium tripolyphosphate market in Latin America and Middle East & Africa is expanding at a sluggish pace compared to that in matured economies. However, the sodium tripolyphosphate market in Latin America and Middle East & Africa is likely to record positive sales during the forecast period due to the growth in end-user industries such as construction and food & beverages.

          Toxoid Vaccines Market to Witness Steady Expansion During 2017-2025      Cache   Translate Page      

Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/06/2018 -- When the immune system is attacked by bacteria-generated toxins, the patient may suffer from severe, harmful reactions. For example, tetanus is a serious bacterial infection that attacks the human nervous system and makes the muscles tightened. Other symptoms may include fever, sweating, and headache. In order to inactivate these toxins in the human and animal bodies, toxoid vaccines are used. A toxoid vaccine is basically made of formalin (solution of formaldehyde and sterilized water). It is adsorbed onto calcium and aluminum salts to improve the immune response.

Toxoid vaccines are safe to use and less vulnerable to changes in the atmosphere. Currently, toxoid vaccines are manufactured by culturing the highly toxigenic strain of Clostridium tetani. It is followed by ultrafiltration. Components of toxoid vaccines include antigens, stabilizers, adjuvants, antibiotics, and preservatives. Most toxoid vaccines are administered through the parenteral (intramuscular) route.

The global toxoid vaccines market is driven by several factors such as rising prevalence of tetanus and diphtheria (Bibersteinia trehalosi infection, Corynebacterium pseudotuberculosis infection, enterotoxemia, pox, etc. in animals); increasing awareness about the severity of tetanus; high rate of diagnosis and treatment of tetanus and diphtheria and recommended number of doses of toxoid vaccines In the next few years, the toxoid vaccines market is likely to face challenges such as pain at the site of injection, side-effects, high prices of vaccines, weak supply chain network in developing countries, and stringent regulatory policies.

On the other hand, new treatment options, government initiatives to implement vaccination programs in developing countries, investments in the development of toxoid vaccines, and technological breakthroughs are anticipated to open new avenues for growth of the market in the near future.

Based on vaccine type, the global toxoid vaccines market has been categorized into tetanus vaccines, diphtheria vaccines, pertussis vaccines, and others (botulism). Currently, toxoid vaccines are used in humans as well as animals to counter the bacterial toxins. Hence, in terms of application, the global toxoid vaccines market can be segmented into human vaccines and veterinary vaccines. The veterinary vaccines segment has been sub-classified into companion animals and livestock animals. Based on end-user, the global toxoid vaccines market has been categorized into hospitals, independent clinics, households, and others (including government camps and health centers).

Request Report Brochure @ https://www.transparencymarketresearch.com/sample/sample.php?flag=B&rep_id=37661

Geographically, the global toxoid vaccines market has been classified into five regions such as North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. According to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, the number of reported tetanus cases worldwide declined by more than 95% between 1974 and 2014 and the current incidence rate is around 0.1 per 1 million people per year.

The European Center for Disease Prevention & Control reported 117 cases of tetanus in human population in Europe in 2017, of which Italy accounted for 41% of cases. The average notification rate was 0.3 cases per 1 million human population in Europe in 2015. In the Asia Pacific region, neonatal and maternal tetanus is considered one of the major health concerns by health care practitioners. In the Asia Pacific region, the number of deaths have been going down since last five years.

According to a study published in the International Journal of Preventive Medicine in 2017, the number of neonatal tetanus cases declined significantly from 80,000 in 1980 to 500 in 2013. The same trend is also observed in China and countries in South Asia including Pakistan in 2016, owing to the rise in awareness about hygiene and increase in vaccinations. North America and Europe are estimated to hold a significant market share of the global toxoid vaccines market during the forecast period.

Request for TOC @ https://www.transparencymarketresearch.com/sample/sample.php?flag=T&rep_id=37661

Prominent players that have commercialized toxoid vaccines for human application are MassBiologics, Sanofi Pasteur, GlaxoSmithKliene Biologics, Grifols, Panacea Biotec, Halfkin Bio-Pharmaceuticals Corporation Ltd., Bengal Chemicals & Pharmaceuticals Ltd., Serum Institute of India, Bharat Pharmaceuticals, and Henry Schein Medical. On the other hand, Colorado Serum Company, Zoetis, and Merck Sharp & Dohme Corp have commercialized toxoid vaccines for veterinary application across the world.

          BBC maakt film over man die boekwinkel won in Wales       Cache   Translate Page      
WIJK BIJ DUURSTEDE - Het is een bijzondere dag voor Cies-Jan van Heerden. De oud-inwoner van Wijk bij Duurstede krijgt vandaag de sleutel van de tweedehands boekwinkel in Wales die hij heeft gewonnen.

Er zullen veel camera's bij zijn, want het verhaal ging twee maanden geleden al de wereld over. De BBC maakt nu zelfs een korte film over de overname.

Van Heerden woont sinds een jaar in Wales. Als vaste klant van de tweedehands boekwinkel Bookends in Cardigan won hij begin september een bijzondere actie van de eigenaren. Die verlootten de winkel omdat zij met pensioen gaan. Geld hoefden ze niet. Van Heerden was de gelukkige. Om mee te doen aan de winactie had hij alleen maar voor twintig euro aan boeken hoeven kopen.

Het is wel een grote stap voor Van Heerden. Hij is dan ook blij dat hij hulp heeft gevonden. "Ik ga het samen doen met een vriend uit IJsland, die ik op internet heb leren kennen. Hij is ook verhuisd naar Wales."

          自学Python找不到工作?一天只学一小时,大佬劝你还是放弃吧!      Cache   Translate Page      

python发展可以说是如日中天,更多的人选择学习Python,也更多的人开始关注它,从这些关注度来看,我发现关注度最高的还是Python的就业前景是怎么样的,毕竟大家学习Python都是为了以后能有好的工作,那么,Python就业到底靠不靠谱呢?答案当然是肯定的。

都说,滴水穿石非一日之功。然而有些人即使奋斗一辈子也比不上别人一年,别人学习一年比不得你学习一个月。其中缘由,有些人看了大半辈子还没看明白。


自学Python找不到工作?一天只学一小时,大佬劝你还是放弃吧!

即使Python这么火,为何你学习一年的Python还找不到工作?

我认为有以下四点非常关键:

1,功利心强:

急需赚钱之人,所以才会着重强调“赚钱”这个字眼。如果越是功力心强,进取心弱,越着急学,越学不明白。


自学Python找不到工作?一天只学一小时,大佬劝你还是放弃吧!

2,基础薄弱:

Python编程零基础的人,或者是基础十分薄弱之人,所在的工作岗位应该也涉及不到计算机编程,那么也许你也许还是一个初学者,一点方向都没有,只知道python这个名词,一些基本语法,别的一无所知,这种情况,学起来更难了。学习资料也可以加下Python扣扣裙:304零五零799自己下载学习下。


自学Python找不到工作?一天只学一小时,大佬劝你还是放弃吧!

3,兴趣全无:

对编程没兴趣,要是有兴趣,起码你学习了一年python,不至于连份体面的工作都找不到,这种一看就是平时连互联网技术、发展,都不关注的人问出的问题了。


自学Python找不到工作?一天只学一小时,大佬劝你还是放弃吧!

带有功利性去学python编程,再简单的东西也会变得很难。如果你不能抛弃功利心,而且内心对python编程没兴趣,那还是别入这行了。


自学Python找不到工作?一天只学一小时,大佬劝你还是放弃吧!

4,学过其它语言,所以从内心瞧不起Python:

十年前,Pascal。我会精确计算每个数组和变量使用的内存,熟练地用非递归方法改写程序,最短的时间内自己实现各种排序,多源最短路径,求凸包和相邻点,动态规划,二分图匹配和网络流算法......,同时考虑算法的最坏复杂度和最高项前边的那个常数。现在,我一个都不记得了是的现在列举这些名词我就是在装逼。

1:

事实: 企业招聘到合格的程序员很难。凡是找不到工作的,编程能力没有达到企业用人的最低标准。

笔者2017年4月到上海参加Gopher China 2017年大会,看到的是企业设展台招聘程序员,演讲者演讲完,也招聘程序员,有的参会者也去招聘程序员。这是Golang的情况。

1、Python 的职位更多,比Java、php 稍微少点,但同等水平程序员,Python 的工资比PHP的高一些。

2、在北上广深、成都、武汉、杭州等地Python 职位挺多,但在其它地方稍微少一些。

上面说了工作不是问题,下面说说怎么才能满足企业的需要。

3、打铁还得自身硬。只有通过企业的面试才有机会当程序员。很多人听说程序员工资高,但叶公好龙,碰到困难就退缩,这个不是学习编程的正确态度。

4、正确的学习方法,能自学就自学,自学搞不定的,找人指导或者参加培训。

5、见过号称会编程的Python程序员,有的可能自我感觉良好,一去面试就挂。

          Evaluating the Jimmy Butler deal -- and every major Tom Thibodeau personnel move      Cache   Translate Page      
Sometimes you go down a rabbit hole and you don’t emerge until you’ve written 1,500 words looking at all the major personnel moves from the Timberwolves since Tom Thibodeau took over as head coach and president of basketball operations in 2016 along with general manager Scott Layden. I’ve divided this into four sections — trades, extensions, first-round draft picks and free agent signings — and against my better judgment I’ve assigned each a grade as a way of trying to quantify what I think of the moves. Let’s get on with the business: Trades Jimmy Butler: C-plus. From a purely basketball standpoint, dealing Dunn, Zach LaVine and the pick that become Lauri Markkanen is a deal I would make 100 times out of 100 (and yes, I’m aware LaVine has been scoring in bunches this year, including 41 on Monday night. He also continues to be a huge defensive liability). When Butler is shipped out — hopefully as soon as possible — the effect will largely be that of laundering those three players. The only one I imagine the Wolves might regret is Markkanen, and even that could be mitigated by acquiring Josh Richardson or some other similarly promising but still young player. There was value in making the playoffs and stopping the streak of losing. Butler is one of the 15 best players in the NBA, and the team that gets the best player wins the deal. That said: If you are going to go all-in on Butler, you have to be ready for all contingencies. That means knowing exactly what it takes to sign him to an extension OR being ready for the eventuality that you can’t do that and need to trade him at a reasonable time. Thibodeau appears to have done neither. The trade itself was an A, the handling of everything else from the end of last season forward is a D-minus, and there’s your overall grade as a result. Ricky Rubio: B-minus. Like a lot of other moves, this one has to be considered in tandem with other roster machinations. Would you rather have Ricky Rubio and $5 million a year to spend on someone else … or Jeff Teague (the more expensive point guard signed to replace Rubio) and Josh Okogie, the player the Wolves drafted with the pick obtained from the Jazz for Rubio? I think I’d rather have the latter. At least it’s a wash. We can argue Teague vs. Rubio in circles all day because their strengths are so different. But Rubio, after shooting a career-best 41.8 percent for Utah last year, is back to his old ways at 35.2 percent so far this year. Rubio certainly made life easier for Andrew Wiggins and Karl-Anthony Towns with his court vision, but the Wolves were the fourth-most efficient offense in the NBA last year. I would have loved to see how Rubio and Butler played together, but we’ll never know. The trade in and of itself yielded reasonable value. First-round draft picks Kris Dunn, 2016, No. 5 pick: C-minus. The Wolves could have and should have had taken Jamal Murray, who looks awfully good for the Nuggets these days (note: this was written before Murray went for 48 on Monday, by the way). Dunn has some value but was shipped out after just one year as part of the Butler trade. If Thibodeau was convinced he was the point guard of the future, he wouldn’t have done that. Justin Patton, 2017, No. 16 pick: D. This felt like a bit of a reach even at the time, and it only looked worse as foot injuries completely derailed Patton’s first two seasons. The Wolves did not pick up the third-year option on his contract, which means the No. 16 overall pick in 2017 be a free agent next summer. Josh Okogie, 2018, No. 20 pick: B. This one is incomplete, but so far the pick looks pretty solid. Okogie’s energy and defensive acumen are making up for any offensive clumsiness so far. He’s given Wolves fans a non-cynical reason to watch games this season. Extensions Andrew Wiggins: C-minus. This would be graded even lower if not for the circumstances. Namely: Wiggins cashed in at the absolute right time in the summer of 2017. He was coming off his best scoring season, and the Wolves had just traded for Jimmy Butler. Had they avoided an extension and let Wiggins reach restricted free agency in the summer of 2018 — a prudent move in a vacuum considering the only thing Wiggins seemed to be getting better at for his first three years was taking more shots — they would have had to try to sign Wiggins, assuage Butler and get Towns inked to his own extension. That the Wolves paid him a max deal is a testament to the stress of choosing otherwise, the hope that he would keep getting better, the fear of someday losing Butler and the absurdity of the NBA’s contract landscape that makes every young player want the max. It worked out great for Wiggins, though. Karl-Anthony Towns: A. Maybe it was a no-brainer that a player KAT’s age would sign for as much money as he could possibly make, but this is the franchise player and he’s signed for the next six years. Whatever happens between now and then, he has tremendous value. Gorgui Dieng: D-plus. This contract looks bloated right now (four years, $64 million), but it looks that way primarily because Dieng has been relegated to the bench with the signing of Taj Gibson – no fault of his own, really. Gorgui is a perfectly fine player and his per-36 minutes numbers have been similar to what he posted as a starter prior to Gibson’s arrival. His contract just doesn’t make sense in the context of Gibson’s deal. If he was still the starter — he started all 82 games in 2016-17 and was a steady performer — it would be much more reasonable. Shabazz Muhammad: C. I’m not sure whether the Wolves should get credit for Muhammad declining a four-year, $40 million extension before the 2016-17 season, but the fact that they’re not on the hook for that is a big deal right now. Sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good. Let’s call this a draw. Free agency This is a tough one because free agency is a two-way street. A player has to want to come here as much as a team has to want to sign them. I broke this segment down by season. 2016: Brandon Rush, Cole Aldrich and Jordan Hill. That’s a combined grade of D. Even if the goal in Thibodeau’s first year was to evaluate young players, the veterans didn’t add much. Hill was a non-factor, Aldrich was viewed as a good value at the time but was seldom-used in two seasons before being bought out of the third year of his deal, and Rush was useful but not much more for a season. 2017: Taj Gibson, Jeff Teague, Jamal Crawford and Aaron Brooks (with Derrick Rose a mid-year addition). That’s an overall grade of B-minus. Gibson has probably been the most solid of the bunch in terms of stability, but there remains a question of the wisdom of signing him to a two-year, $28 million deal less than a year after giving fellow big man Dieng a four-year, $64 million extension. That’s a lot of money tied up in non-elite big men. Teague has been fine, and his play down the stretch last season was an underrated reason why the Wolves hung onto a playoff spot. Crawford made some big shots and was a great guy, but he also was a key contributor to the worst defensive bench unit in the league. Brooks barely played. Rose showed up big in the postseason. This group of veterans no doubt helped the Wolves make the playoffs, but collectively they weren’t much of a long-term fit (more on that in a moment, too). 2018: Rose, Anthony Tolliver, Luol Deng and James Nunnally. That’s a combined grade of C-plus. Rose was very good early, including a 50-point game, but injuries have slowed him lately. Tolliver gives the Wolves a badly needed three-point threat. Deng and Nunnally are depth guys who figure to barely play this year. That’s decent impact for not a lot of money spent, but nothing that blows you away. It should be noted here that every significant free agent signing could be gone as soon as next year. Rush, Aldrich, Hill, Brooks and Crawford are already gone. Gibson is in the final year of a two-year deal. Teague signed a three-year deal, but the third year is a player option. Rose, Tolliver and Deng are on one-year deals. They might be down to Nunnally, who signed a two-year deal, next season — and even he only has a partial guarantee. The plan since acquiring Butler has hinged on last year and this year. Based on how the contracts were structured, next season was always going to be a time of transition and re-evaluation. That feels extra true right now, with the process sped up by Butler’s trade request. If Butler (and Dieng, who has been rumored as part of deals as well) are both dealt … and Tyus Jones signs elsewhere in the offseason after not getting an extension from the Wolves this year … and Teague opts out … and none of the other impending free agents re-sign … the only key rotation players currently on the roster who would be around next year are Towns, Wiggins and Okogie. That’s not a bad place to start a reconstruction, but it would feel completely different than it does right now.

1) you are equivocating atheism, naturalism, and communism/totalitarianism. Equivocation is a tool you use frequently.

2) you say you have an absolute standard. That standard gets used differently across the ages, from culture to culture and even within a single culture. You want to say the Bible never changes. Sure it does, different books get canonized by different sects. Different religions add on, like Islam and Mormonism. And there is a lot of variation on the interpretation. When we challenge you to explain why your interpretation is correct, it always boils down to personal subjective experience. Absolute standard, ha! You want to say "God" never changes, how do we know when you say "God" is the personal subjective experience that's giving you all the answers, yet strangely giving different answers to other people.

3) you've been through nearly every disingenuous strategy in Stephen Law's book Beleiving Bullshit.

4) You routinely base your arguments on fallacies, even go so far as to say fallacies don't matter.

5) people who depend on magical thinking and magical spells often kill their own children through medical neglect.

6) blaming the victim is a hallmark of magical thinking and magical spells. Blaming the victim is the standard reason why homeopathy doesn't work. Same for crystal power. Same for prayer and those who aren't "Christian enough". You've played the blame game plenty of times.

6) people who depend on magical thinking and magical spells often get their money taken by frauds, injure themselves and occasionally get themselves killed at the hands of faith healers -- spokespeople for your "god".

7) Funny you mentioned the Crusades along side "absolute moral standard" since spreading "God" was the justification for killing non-believers.

8) "But take atheism to China or Russia and things change." Things change under the "atheism" of many European countries and in good ways. But that's really secularism/humanism unbridled by magical thinking.

9) you routinely bastardize science to compensate for your own lack of evidence and reliable methods of acquiring knowledge. You misinterpret it, redefine it, and frankly just get it wrong when you need to.

10) we don't pretend to have an absolute moral standard, we acknowledge neither of us do. You only pretend you do.

11) if you want to use a metric of number of people slaughtered as a measure of evil, count up the deaths in the Bible: Jehovah: uncountable tens of millions. Satan: seven.

          Whither Sri Lankan politics..?       Cache   Translate Page      
-By A patriotic Lankan: London-

               Today, 22 million Sri Lankans are worried and concerned about their political future.  Each day is passing with uncertainty and unpredictable outcomes. Some fear that this political chaos will take this beautiful country into dark ages. I’m not a supporter of any political party or any political ideological group but I’m very much concerned about the political road map of Sri Lanka. Where will this political uncertainty take Sri Lanka. It has been reported that business sectors have already begun to suffer due to this man-made political tension. Now, tourists will think twice before they book their holidays in Sri Lanka? This unwanted political move will cost Sri Lankan economy enormously. This unsolicited political strife will inflict a greater damage for Sri Lankan democratic tradition and reputation. 

              This political move by Sri Lankan president has divided Sri Lankans into two groups. One group supports president’s move and another one opposes his move to appoint a new PM. We are now at a historical turning point in Sri Lankan political map. It is not about the political future of Maithiri or about the political future of either Ranil or Mahinda. 

              It is all about democratic tradition of this country. It is all about people mandate to elect and select whom they wish. It is all about Parliamentary democracy of this country.  It is all about law and order of this country. It is all about civic rights and civil society. It is all about our democratic institutions. It is all about our legal and judiciary institutions in Sri Lanka. It is all about the integrity of our constitution in Sri Lanka. It is all about the consciousness of 6:2 million voters who gave their votes to MS. It is all about the political, economic, educational, legal and social future of 22 million Sri Lanka. We are concerned today not because of changing political leadership from one group to another but we concerned about the fundamentals and foundation of Sri Lankan democracy. They are indeed concerned because all these democratic traditions are at stake today with this move. That is why we are concerned about this abrupt move. The county is fading away from 70 years of democratic tradition into Chinese style dictatorial political system.

           What examples are we setting for the next generation of Sri Lankans.  Are we telling them with this political move it is Ok to grab power by any means? It is a disgrace to see how MPs are bought and sold in public in this political move. The president misused his presidential power to suspend parliament to buy more times to win the majority in Parliament. What type of democracy is this?  Can Maithri fool 22 million Sri Lankans.  He may get the support of some hard-core MR supporters and yet, believe me 80% of Sri Lankans would oppose such a move. 90% of educated people of all communities oppose this type of political move.

                Francis Fukuyama 2011 in his book (Origins of political order from prehumen times to the French revolution) defines the three fundamental components of a modern political order. Accordingly, a strong a capable state, the state’s subordination to a rule of law and government accountability to all citizens are those three components. One of the secrets of the success of western democracy is that western political system managed to subordinate all citizens under the rule of law from Kings, Queens Lords, feudal land lords, elites to ordinary citizens all are equal in the eyes of law. The rule of law is applied equally to all. This was one of the pre-conditions for the success of western democratic tradition. No citizen is above all. That is why even today when MPs break the law in England, they plead guilty, take responsibility and happily accept punishment as dictated by law. Today, in Sri Lanka law makers are breaking their own democratic tradition without any disgrace. What matters is the application of democratic values not mere slogans and words.  China, Russia, and Saudi all claim they are democratic countries, but are they? Do we want to follow their vision of democracy?  

            There is no doubt Sri Lanka is trapped in geopolitics of some Asian countries. Sri Lanka is trapped in Indo-Chinese geopolitics. China managed to buy Mahinda with its money. China does not follow western democratic traditions. It does not mind about human rights or ecological and environmental disasters. All what they want is to use Sri Lanka as one of its strategic geopolitical locations. China has been encircling many Asian countries with its mighty economic powers. Unfortunately, Mahinda Rajapaksa had adopted some wrong foreign polices during his two terms in our diplomatic relationship with India and China. Recently, China has been putting many African countries in a debt trap with its mega development projects. Unfortunately, we too became a victim of Chinese geopolitical hegemony.  Unlike many other countries, China uses its diplomatic and political relations to do business with its friendly countries. Knowingly or unknowingly we became a victim of China’s political ploy. It is generally believed that China has played a role in this political chaos in Sri Lanka. Who can challenge China now? who can question China now? For the personal interest of Mahinda family, he put the entire country in hock in the hands of China. 

         Unlike in the past, to do politics in this virtual world of information and technological advancement, our politicians too must have some thorough knowledge in geopolitics, diplomacy, rules of law, world order, and other areas of modern world. Sri Lanka badly needs a new generation of politicians to take this beautiful country forward. I’m sorry to say that more than 50% of MPs in our parliament are incompetent politicians to meet the political challenges of 21th century. I suggest some first-class graduates with high level of IQs must enter politics to clean Sri Lankan politics from the grip of these political thugs.

Roger At the risk of backslapping, I couldn't agree with you more. Trump could be pivotal in where the world heads, communism or democracy. Or even worse, progressives undermining democracy. The world has emerged from free trade (look up Matt Ridley's book, 'The Rational Optimist' where he describes from almost the first page, man's emergence as a force of nature through his ability to specialise and trade. From the guy who can't fish, but who makes brilliant bone fishooks, teaming up with a guy who can fish but can't make hooks; to the guy who can't drive but can build roads teaming up with the taxi driver. Socialism (and I use that in the broadest terms to include communism) is a political, ideological, unnatural construct which barely existed before Marx. Free trade is the natural order of peaceful society. It's not perfect but almost everything meaningful produced by mankind has emerged from it. Capitalism is also a political construct, but not nearly as harmful as socialism as it allies itself with free trade. I would argue that despite their oppressive regimes, China and Russia are becoming more capitalistic than the west, but they are understandably fumbling with the concept of change; as the west is badly fumbling the same concept, when it shouldn't.

CUATRO DE CADA CINCO MUJERES DEL SECTOR TECNOLÓGICO QUIEREN QUEDARSE EN LA INDUSTRIA Y ESTÁN TOMANDO LA INICIATIVA PARA ALCANZAR LA IGUALDAD DE GÉNERO

Un estudio de Booking.com ha revelado que las mujeres del sector tecnológico se están esforzando por impulsar el cambio, y ha incentivado su opinión sobre las iniciativas empresariales necesarias para diversificar la mano de obra del futuro.

Booking.com, una de las mayores empresas e-commerce de viajes y líder en tecnología digital, ha compartido los resultados de un estudio global que busca conocer las experiencias e impresiones de las mujeres que trabajan en el ámbito tecnológico. Más de cuatro de cada cinco mujeres (83 %) que actualmente forman parte de la industria tecnológica afirman tener la intención de continuar su carrera en este sector durante los próximos cinco o diez años, lo que pone de manifiesto su confianza en su papel actual y en el potencial de la industria.


El estudio también ha identificado las acciones que las profesionales de este sector están llevando a cabo para promover una mayor igualdad de género en el lugar de trabajo, así como las medidas proactivas que creen que deberían tomar las empresas tecnológicas para que las mujeres puedan seguir abriéndose paso en la esfera tecnológica.

Las mujeres que trabajan en el sector tecnológico están decididas a seguir en la industria y animan a la siguiente generación a seguir su ejemplo

Según el estudio de Booking.com, las mujeres en distintas etapas de su carrera profesional comparten la determinación de permanecer en el sector, tanto las que acaban de empezar que tiene entre 1 y 5 años de experiencia laboral (80 %), como las más veteranas, que superan los 10 años de experiencia (83 %), y las que han vuelto a la industria tras un paréntesis en su carrera (88 %). Estas cifras demuestran que los niveles de satisfacción de las mujeres que trabajan en este ámbito aumentan a medida que avanzan en su carrera, lo que a su vez hace que quieran quedarse en el sector.

Las mujeres que trabajan en esta industria en India y en China (96 % y 94 % respectivamente) están más decididas a quedarse que las europeas y estadounidenses. Sin embargo, el estudio también ha revelado que, en China, las mujeres se topan con barreras en este sector. El 43 % de las encuestadas en este país creen que, llegado un punto, no podrán seguir avanzando en su carrera. Esta es la cifra más elevada del mundo, que contrasta con la media global del 26 %, lo que demuestra que las mujeres en China tienen más dificultades para evolucionar profesionalmente en esta industria. En la India, este es un problema menos importante que en otros mercados, pues tan solo el 17 % de las encuestadas creen que sus posibilidades de desarrollo profesional son limitadas. Por otro lado, el 42 % de las mujeres de este país tienen la sensación de que sus contribuciones y opiniones se subestiman en el lugar de trabajo, una cifra que duplica con creces la media global (20 %), lo que apunta a un grave problema de cultura empresarial.

Más allá de su compromiso con la industria tecnológica, las mujeres del sector se muestran entusiastas a la hora de animar a otras a desarrollar su carrera en este ámbito. Casi nueve de cada diez en todo el mundo (89 %) recomendarían el sector a la siguiente generación de mujeres que actualmente cursan estudios universitarios o de educación secundaria. Este sentimiento es especialmente fuerte en la India, donde lo comparten el 97 % de las mujeres del sector, seguido por Brasil con 95 %.

“Se observa un claro afán y optimismo por parte de las mujeres, tanto de las que ya forman parte de la industria tecnológica como de las que aspiran a integrarla algún día, en relación con el potencial que encierra una carrera en este sector. Para seguir avanzando y alcanzar la igualdad de género real en la industria tecnológica global, deberíamos aprovechar este optimismo y crear una cultura más inclusiva que atraiga y retenga al talento femenino“, afirmó Gillian Tans, CEO de Booking.com. “Es alentador y estimulante ver cómo las mujeres en este ámbito hacen cosas increíbles cada día, como tomar medidas de forma proactiva para establecer un vínculo con las futuras generaciones, hacerse oír y lanzar programas e iniciativas destinados a promover la diversificación de la mano de obra del sector”.

Desde compartir su experiencia profesional hasta orientar a las futuras generaciones: las mujeres están liderando su propio progreso en la industria tecnológica

Tanto si trabajan en una empresa tecnológica internacional como si lo hacen en una startup, las mujeres de este campo asumen el papel que pueden desempeñar para superar la brecha de género existente en el sector y apoyar a otras mujeres. A nivel global, las mujeres que ya trabajan en la industria y las que aspiran a ello creen que la mejor forma de contribuir a este objetivo es compartiendo sus experiencias en el sector y sus opiniones al respecto con otras mujeres (46 %), además de servirles de guía y consejeras (44 %).

Las estudiantes universitarias opinan que estas son las mejores opciones (56 % y 50 % respectivamente). Como próxima generación de talentos en el ámbito tecnológico, se muestran muy dispuestas a aprender y recibir consejo de las mujeres que ya trabajan en la industria.

Dos de cada cinco mujeres de todo el mundo (38 %) creen que las mujeres del sector tienen la oportunidad de reducir la brecha de género a través de la participación en organizaciones no lucrativas creadas para apoyar a las niñas y mujeres en los campos de la ciencia, la tecnología, la ingeniería y las matemáticas. Las estudiantes universitarias consideran que esta es la opción con más potencial (47 %), una opinión compartida por las mujeres de la India (46 %) y China (45 %).

Más allá de sus propios esfuerzos, las mujeres piden a las empresas tecnológicas más diversidad en la contratación y más mentores y modelos a seguir, acciones que consideran clave para su éxito en el ámbito tecnológico

Si bien las mujeres se sienten capacitadas para inspirar a otras mujeres, cambiar la mentalidad y liderar la eliminación de las barreras a su ascenso en este sector, también creen que la industria tiene la obligación de invertir más en iniciativas que las apoyen, empezando, por ejemplo, por poner en marcha prácticas diseñadas para diversificar la mano de obra, algo que más de una de cada dos mujeres de todo el mundo (51 %) han identificado como el cambio más necesario. Sin embargo, tan solo ese porcentaje espera ver este cambio en marcha en el lugar de trabajo en los próximos cinco años, lo que sugiere que las empresas todavía tienen margen de maniobra para intervenir y acelerar este proceso.

“A partir de nuestro estudio y de las innumerables historias de mujeres ejemplares que trabajan en el ámbito tecnológico, queda claro que las mujeres han tomado las riendas de la situación para poner en marcha un cambio positivo en la industria. Sin embargo, es necesario admitir que la responsabilidad también recae sobre un colectivo más amplio, que incluye al sector tecnológico, a las empresas, a los legisladores y a los educadores”, afirmó Tans. “Tenemos la oportunidad de lograr un cambio real y duradero hoy y de dejar un legado para la próxima generación de mujeres en el ámbito tecnológico. Es por este motivo por el que Booking.com organiza la sesión “Women in Tech” en la Web Summit anual que se celebra en Lisboa, un espacio en el que las mujeres pueden compartir experiencias y hacer contactos. Además, también proponemos sesiones de asesoramiento individual para mujeres de la industria tecnológica con ejecutivos de Booking.com y otros líderes del sector.”

Al preguntarles por los pasos necesarios para posibilitar su éxito e iniciar un cambio positivo en la industria, las mujeres afirmaron que las empresas también deben poner en marcha políticas de desarrollo profesional basadas en méritos (45 %), así como dar mayor visibilidad y facilitar el acceso a los mentores y modelos a seguir (43 %). La posibilidad de contar con un mentor es especialmente relevante para las estudiantes de educación secundaria (48 %) y universitaria (51 %), que buscan apoyo y orientación para comenzar y desarrollar una carrera próspera en el ámbito tecnológico.

Además, las mujeres también consideran clave para su futuro en la industria tecnológica las actuaciones corporativas enfocadas en aumentar la representación de las mujeres en la mano de obra y los grupos internos (43 %), así como en los órganos de dirección de la empresa. Son sobre todo las estudiantes universitarias (51 %) las que exigen una mayor representación en el último caso, lo que demuestra la importancia de contar con modelos a seguir visibles desde una edad temprana. Dos de cada cinco mujeres esperan que esto sea una realidad en los próximos cinco años.

Otras actuaciones que las mujeres creen que deberían llevar a cabo las empresas para favorecer su desarrollo profesional en el sector son: garantizar la igualdad salarial (43 %), proporcionar formación sobre prejuicios ocultos en el lugar de trabajo (42 %) y ofrecerles oportunidades suficientes para ampliar o reforzar sus habilidades (42 %). Actualmente muchas empresas están dando grandes pasos para poner en marcha condiciones y programas que proporcionen a las mujeres las oportunidades, los recursos y el apoyo necesario para desarrollar una carrera gratificante en el sector tecnológico. Con todo, como señala el estudio, sigue habiendo margen para aumentar los esfuerzos dirigidos a conseguir una mayor diversificación de la mano de obra.

          Rainbow Six Siege eliminará contenido violento y sexual ¿A que se debe?      Cache   Translate Page      

Rainbow Six Siege está en el ojo de la tormenta dado que hasta hace algunos días se ha anunciado que se llevarán a cabo diversos cambios en relación a contenido violento y sexual dentro de algunos mapas. Según explicó Ubisoft, dichos cambios se deben a que quieren estrenar sin ningún inconveniente el título en China y en dicho país existen algunas restricciones sobre mostrar cierto tipo de contenido en juegos multijugador online. RELACIONADO: UBISOFT QUIERE DESARROLLAR MÁS CONTENIDO PVE PARA EL JUEGO Además, la compañía explicó que estos cambios los hacían en general pues prefieren trabajar en base a una sola versión en vez de estar con la responsabilidad de sostener dos títulos que se diferencian por ciertos detalles gráficos. Entre los cambios que ha realizado Ubisoft es en relación a ciertas paredes o logotipos de algunos mapas donde podemos ver calaveras, sangre en la pared y una striptease hecha con luces de neón. Lamentablemente estos cambios no les ha gustado para nada a la comunidad de Rainbow Six Siege quienes han empezado a realizar todo tipo de opiniones negativas en las reseñas de usuarios de la plataforma Steam. Hasta el cierre de esta nota, se ha venido acumulando más de 1500 reseñas negativa produciendose que la valoración del juego pase a ser “variada” en vez de “positiva” debido a que al algoritmo detecta opiniones polarizadas. Algunos usuarios no perdona que Ubisoft ceda ante el mercado chino implantando dichos cambios solamente para evitar que el juego se censure por completo. RELACIONADO: CHILD OF LIGHT PODRÍA CONTAR CON UNA SERIE DE TELEVISIÓN PRÓXIMAMENTE Asimismo, señalan que los cambios deberían darse únicamente para el territorio chino y que esto no debería afectar para nada la versión internacional. Esperemos que Ubisoft decida tomar cartas en el asunto dado que R6 se ha convertido en uno de sus títulos multijugador estrella y hasta hace poco supimos que el juego ya había alcanzado los 40 millones de usuarios activos.

          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.

          Demand higher teacher salaries!      Cache   Translate Page      
Teachers are undervalued in our society. They do not make enough to raise a family with their current salaries. I propose to raise minimum teacher salaries to $60,000. How will we do this?My proposal is that the federal government make up the $21,000 difference between the current starting salary of $39,000 and the proposed salary of $60,000 by taking a small portion of military spending and relocating it to this cause. The state and local government will maintain current funding as well as annual raises of 2-3%. This will in turn only require a 6.7% military spending cut. We would still have $543 billion to spend on defense, which is still more than 2.5 times the amount of military spending as China, our closest competitor. Teachers are taking care of our future generations, so we need to take care of them.

24/11/2018 - SUPERMEGABOMBA! Tre concerti (Elli De Mon con il nuovo disco Songs of Mercy and Desire, fresco fresco di stampa) e dj set! Ne uscirete innamorati, amati e sudati! Scaletta: - Isak Suzzi in solo, - Mr. Deadly one BAD man - Elli de Mon - onewomanband - presentazione NUOVO ALBUM - TDROCK dj set Apertura ore 21 Ingresso con tessera arci + contributo di 5€ Elli de Mon - onewomanband è chitarre, grancassa, rullante, sonagli, suoni saturi e psichedelia indiana. Attingendo a piene mani dalla tradizione sciamanica di lontani incantatori come Bessie Smith, Fred McDowell e Son House, Elli combatte i suoi demoni con lo strumento a lei più congeniale: la musica. Un blues nuovo, fatto di slide selvaggi e contaminato da infuenze punk (Elli militava anche negli Almandino Quite Deluxe), e dalla musica indiana, grande amore di Elli. A Marzo 2013 debutta con il 7” Leave this town. Fin da subito inizia a macinare concerti su concerti, tra cui un tour americano in compagnia dell’amico Phill Reynolds. Nel Febbraio 2014 è uscito per CORPOC e Otis Recordings il suo primo album, dal titolo omonimo, registrato da Bruno Barcella e Alessio Lonati al TUP studio di Brescia. Nel Febbraio 2015 è uscito II per Pitshark Records, etichetta francese al lavoro con band come Radio Birdman, Motorheads, Cosmic Psychos, mentre il disco di debutto di Elli de Mon viene ristampato dall’italiana Ammonia Records (Shandon, Peawees, Manges, The Hormonauts). Nel 2016 è uscito sempre per Ammonia lo split VS con un altro one man band, Diego Deadman Potron, mentre nel 2017 è arrivato alle stampe un nuovo lavoro per Pitshark, Blues tapes: the indian sessions, incentrato sulla fusione del blues con la musica indiana. Elli ha suonato ovunque, dividendo il palco con artisti come The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Afterhours, Reverend Beatman, the Monsters, Molly Gene onewoamanband, Big John Bates, Chuck Ragan, Larry and His Flask, Cedric Burnside, Bror Gunnar Jansson, Carmen Consoli. Ha partecipato a numerosi festival nazionali, come Radio Onda D’Urto, Sherwood Festival, Mojostation Blues Festival, To.t.em. Festival, Musicaw Festival, Nistoc, Salone del Libro di Torino (Radio Tre) ed internazionali come il festival blues di Lugano, di Cognac e il Berlin Fest. Elli ha portato il suo album in tour anche in Spagna, Francia, Germania, Belgio e Svizzera. A novembre 2018 esce il suo quinto lavoro e terzo full lenght, ancora per Pitshark Records, intitolato Songs of Mercy and Desire, che segna il suo ritorno a canzoni più folk e blues rock. E alla fine si ritorna a casa. Il nuovo disco di Elli de Mon è una ricerca delle radici da cui tutto è partito. Songs of Mercy and Desire parla di questo, di evoluzione, di cambiamento e di accettazione, di resilienza e di riscatto. è un disco autobiografico, che racconta dei luoghi dove Elli è nata e cresciuta. Radici legate alla sua storia personale quindi, ma anche musicale. Le canzoni sono nate infatti attraverso i suoni minimali della chitarra acustica e della sua amata weissenborn, che Elli ha riscoperto e rispolverato. Il suono acustico e intimo riflette anche il periodo particolare in cui le canzoni sono state scritte e registrate, ossia la sua gravidanza. Le sferzate slide dei dischi precedenti ci sono anche qui, ma questa volta Elli ha voluto lasciare spazio anche a ballads più intime, scritte cullando la sua pancia. è un disco più articolato rispetto ai precedenti, meno viscerale ma più variegato, dove hanno trovato spazio anche la voce di Phill Reynolds, in un pezzo dedicato alla violenza domestica e i sax di Matt Bordin (the Mojomatics, Squadra Omega), che ha registrato il disco nel suo Outside Inside Studio. Blues, folk e sonagli sciamanici. Da una costola dei Gentlemens, Daniele Fioretti aka Mr. Deadly one BAD man dà sfogo alle sue voglie in un frenetico e vorticoso garage blues, dove la musica del delta del Missisippi si incontra con il punk, dando vita a un sound che si ispira a Oblivians e Jon Spencer. La musica del giovane e fenomenale Isak Suzzi si immerge nell'hill-country delle aperte praterie per poi far ritorno nel tepore intimistico del dark-blues e delle ballate notturne. Attraverso sospiri ermetici e ritmi incalzanti, questa metonimia di chitarra e voce dà origine a un genere del tutto personale che evoca le memorie di una natura ormai perduta e i frammenti di un'era post-apocalittica. Una musica romantica che si infrange al vento del crepuscolo e si risveglia nella quiete dell'alba. Una musica prorompente in cui la miseria morale dell'uomo viene estirpata dalla sublime potenza della natura. Dj set TDROCK: i nostri amatissimi montanari, una consolle, la pista, le luci, la macchina del fumo. E volendo c'è pure la mirror ball!

          Ônibus cai de ponte após briga entre passageira e motorista e mata 13 pessoas; veja vídeo      Cache   Translate Page      

Uma briga entre um motorista e uma passageira de um ônibus na China fez o veículo cair em um rio na manhã do último domingo (28). O acidente matou pelo menos 13 pessoas e deixou duas desaparecidas. O acidente ocorreu em em Chongqing, no sudoeste da China e foi registrado por câmeras de segurança e divulgado no jornal oficial chinês.

Segundo a polícia chinesa, a briga ocorreu após uma discussão entre o motorista e a passageira, que não conseguiu descer no ponto de ônibus que desejava. O vídeo foi encontrado só depois que o veículo foi retirado do rio Yangtze, o mais longo da China.

O ônibus foi achado só dois dias depois do acidente, na terça-feira (30). As equipes de resgate utilizaram o sistema sonar para que o ônibus fosse localizado.

SAS 171 L'agenda Kosovo


Gérard de Villiers

Derrière Malko, un moustachu prit sous une banquette une kalach à crosse pliante et la braqua sur les trois visiteurs. Plusieurs hommes avaient sorti des armes. On était parti pour un massacre. We don't want the money, précisa calmement Malko.
Il y avait des tas de billets sur toutes les tables. De quoi acheter la moitié des voix du Kosovo. Derrière l'homme tenu en joue par Chris Jones, Malko aperçut le canon de la Kalach se relever lentement. On ne le croyait pas : les Mulliki étaient prêts à déclencher un massacre pour protéger leur cagnotte. Malko baissa les yeux : le canon de la kalach visait son ventre.

Extrait du livre :
machinal l'énorme projecteur planté en bordure du profond ravin au fond duquel coulait une petite rivière, la Bistrica, qui longeait l'arrière du monastère orthodoxe de Vesaki Decani, un des plus anciens du Kosovo, où vivaient une trentaine de religieux serbes. Le puissant faisceau lumineux illumina aussitôt la faille jus­qu'à la petite passerelle de bois franchissant la Bistrica.
Le soldat italien activa ensuite deux projecteurs plus modestes qui éclairaient la langue de terre, coincée entre l'à-pic et les murs de pierre de cinq mètres de hauteur du monastère, où étaient installés le bâtiment préfabriqué et les toilettes transportables du poste de garde de la KFOR, lequel faisait partie de la protection de cet établissement isolé, situé aux confins du Monténégro et du Kosovo, dans les «Alpes shqiptares», où alternaient collines boi­sées et profonds canyons. Un autre détachement de la KFOR, beaucoup plus important, était installé en face de l'entrée principale du monastère, sur la petite route de terre allant du village de Decani à la frontière du Monténégro, en suivant le lit de la Bistrica. Un check-point précédé de chicanes permettait de filtrer la circulation - réduite à quelques véhicules et des tracteurs - pour éviter les visiteurs indésirables. De gros rouleaux de barbelés couraient le long des fossés et la KFOR avait installé sur les collines se faisant face de part et d'autre du monastère deux postes de veille, occupés ponctuellement.

analytics5be19c64696d7.jpg

The purchasing managers' index in October fell to a two-year low, as growing tensions in trade relations and new tariffs, along with growing political uncertainty, had a negative effect on exports and business optimism.

At the same time, the European Central Bank was hoping for good news, as it plans to stop its asset purchase program with a budget of 2.6 trillion euros by the end of the year, disabling one of the main instruments to stimulate the eurozone economy. The index of purchasing managers from IHS Markit, which is the most accurate indicator of economic health in general, fell to 53.1 points in October from 54.1 points in September, which is the lowest figure since September 2016.

In general, the block economy grew by 0.2 percent in the third quarter and, according to analysts, in the current quarter the growth will reach 0.4 percent.

Among the negative factors for the euro, Brexit remains in the first place, the ongoing trade war between the United States and China, as well as the end of Angela Merkel's political career, all this has a negative effect on business sentiment.

          "Donkeys" vs. "Elephants": main scenarios of the US election results      Cache   Translate Page      

The dynamics of trading on the foreign exchange market this week will be determined by China, Brexit, and congressional elections. And if the real prospects for a trade war and Brexit will be known only in a few weeks, then we will know the results of the American elections tomorrow. On the eve of the plebiscite, the dollar is noticeably nervous, since with a high degree of probability the "elephants" (the historical emblem of the Republicans) will lose control over the House of Representatives, retaining the majority only in the Senate.

djZWbOJoYl9J-qEQeHdA_G_Bi7XbK1KFzZOjFaQU

In general, this result was predictable long before the election. The composition of the lower house of Congress is re-elected every two years, that is, in the middle of the presidential term (hence the name "midterm elections"). As a rule, the ruling party fails in these elections, losing a majority in one of the chambers. Even the most popular American presidents could not project their success on the party they represented in order to "survive" the intermediate plebiscite. The rare exception in this regard is Bush Junior, but at that time, the Americans had just experienced September 11, which explains their political cohesion.

Given the odiousness of Donald Trump and the lack of absolute support even within the Republican Party, the result of the 2018 elections is not difficult to predict. By and large, the main intrigue now is how strong the Democrats will have over the Republicans in the House of Representatives and how the alignment of forces in the Senate will change.

The latest polls show that members of the Democratic Party in the House of Representatives guaranteed 202 seats for themselves, but only 195 for Republicans. In total, there are 435 seats in the lower chamber, so 38 more positions remain in the air (ratings of candidates in these constituencies are about are equal), but, in the opinion of the overwhelming number of experts, the Democrats will definitely take the majority here. In the Senate, there is a struggle for only 35 seats out of 100, since only part of the Senate mandates are rotated during the midterm elections. Here, the advantage will remain with the Republican Party, at least, many analysts are sure of this.

DTc6WUGKyvMN95N8nhJhEISafkCNCG_8ybUDsB9U

In the context of the foreign exchange market, the main question is how the dollar will react to the results of today's elections. The most realistic scenario (Lower House for Democrats, Upper for Republicans) is unlikely to cause a flurry of volatility, although it will put downward pressure on the US currency. The Democratic-controlled House of Representatives will put Trump in a very awkward position, primarily regarding the implementation of a number of legislative initiatives. However, the Republican control over the Senate will allow the president to continue to pursue the personnel policy required by the White House. The Upper Chamber approves (or does not approve) candidates nominated by the head of state for key government positions.

Due to the fact that this, the most likely, option is now widely discussed (including among traders), it will not cause any panic in the markets. Moreover, according to some experts, the dollar may ignore this result. Another thing is if the election results are unexpected, in this case, dollar pairs will be influenced by strong volatility.

We are talking about two unlikely scenarios. If the Republicans maintain the status quo and vice versa, if the Democrats manage to take control of both houses of Congress. Despite the unlikelihood of such options, they cannot be excluded. In favor of losing the Republicans, the fact that the number of supporters of Donald Trump's policies last week fell by four percent, according to a weekly survey, says. In general, the head of state is supported by 40% of respondents, while 54% of respondents were dissatisfied with his policies. By and large, the mid-term congressional elections reflect the Americans' opinion on the actions of their president following the two years of his rule. Therefore, Trump's downgrade may also affect the overall Republican result.

lah1FlEPn_XZFXHFb-6oLDqatc_nmY9Hjye72pML

There is another opinion, already in favor of the Republican Party. According to experts, Donald Trump has a very large number of so-called "hidden supporters". In the public plane (including during polls) they do not talk about their true political views, but in the polling booth "silent fans" support Republicans, associating them with Trump's policies. It is worth recalling that in the last election, many polls gave the victory to Hillary Clinton, but as you know, Trump won them. According to a number of political scientists, a similar sociological discrepancy occurred precisely at the expense of "hidden supporters", which this time may present a surprise.

Thus, despite numerous sociological studies, the intrigue of the midterm elections remains. This means that it is not advisable to trade dollar pairs in the next day due to the unpredictability of the greenback reaction to their results.

          Onorato: MSC Committed to Sustainable Growth in China      Cache   Translate Page      

Published in: Cruise News

Gianni Onorato, CEO

“We are very satisfied with the outcome of 2018 in China,” said Gianni Onorato, CEO of MSC Cruises. “We are expecting an even better 2019 with the capacity changes.”

Speaking to Cruise Industry News in Shenzhen, Onorato said there is plenty of demand in the market, and MSC was managing it in a sustainable way, as opposed to the aggressive build up that other operators had tried.

The MSC Splendida was in the market seasonally in 2018, and will extend her program in 2019, staying for the winter ahead of being replaced by the new and larger Bellissima in 2020.

Onorato said the market was moving from the charter model to more block bookings, and MSC has also started taking direct sales as well.

The booking window is also moving out for the Swiss-based brand.

“We are on the right track,” Onorato said. “We have already seen a strong improvement in the booking window in the last 12 to 18 months. We are in good shape for 2019.”

Festivities at China Cruise Shipping 13

Among the challenges are limited deployment options with South Korea off the table, temporarily.

Opportunities include cabotage, which is an ongoing topic. Embarking Chinese guests in multiple homeports, a strategy MSC uses to its advantage in the Mediterranean, could prove to be a huge momentum boost.

The company is adding more nights to sailings in 2019, with additional five-night cruises on its schedule, and even a six-night sailing. Come winter 2019-2020, new deployments will see the Splendida sail from Shenzhen and Xiamen, calling mostly on Japan but also introducing Vietnam.

The new Bellissima will debut in the market in early 2020. Under construction at Chantiers in France, the 4,500-guest ship will be the largest in China, and feature MSC’s personal digital assistant, Zoe, in every stateroom.

MSC Splendida

Onorato commended Chinese travel agencies and government officials for playing a major role in developing the cruise industry in China.

Agencies, he said, created cruise departments from nothing and took huge risks chartering ships.

As for government officials, they have pushed through terminal development and key policy changes.

“I see a bright future,” Onorato explained. “Every cruise line makes their own decisions, and we do not have enough ships to move more to China today. But, we are growing and this is an important sign to the market that we are here, serious, growing and committed.”

Additionally, CSSC Carnival Cruise Shipping Limited announced it has signed a contract to finalize its previously announced agreement to order two new cruise ships that will be built in China and serve the Chinese cruise market, according to a press release.

The two new cruise ships will be constructed by Shanghai Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding Co., Ltd. (SWS), a Chinese-owned shipyard in Shanghai, with the first ship expected to be delivered in 2023. The agreement also gives CSSC Carnival Cruise Shipping Limited the option to order four additional China-built cruise ships to serve growing demand from Chinese consumers.

CSSC, China's largest shipbuilder, and leading global shipbuilder Fincantieri S.p.A. have established a separate joint venture to grant a technology license of the ship model platform and to provide technical and project service support to SWS throughout the shipbuilding process. The two new ships will be built with a design tailored for the new joint venture and the specific tastes of Chinese travelers, according to a press release.

“The official launch of our cruise joint venture in China is a significant milestone in the strategic development of a strong and sustainable cruise industry in China,” said Arnold Donald, CEO of Carnival Corporation. “Together with our partners, we are excited about our ability to launch a new cruise line in China based on existing ships and new China-built cruise ships tailored for Chinese travelers.”

“The new cruise joint venture complements our existing presence in the market and strengthens our commitment to help China build a holistic ecosystem and become a leading global cruise market,” added Michael Thamm, group CEO, Costa Group and Carnival Asia. “We look forward to working with CSSC to further increase demand for cruising by generating broad awareness of why going on a cruise is an extraordinary holiday and exceptional value.”

“It is a strategic decision for CSSC to enter into the cruise industry in partnership with Carnival Corporation and Fincantieri,” said Lei Fanpei, chairman of CSSC. “Through the partnership with leading international enterprises, we will build a whole industrial chain including the cruise ship design and building, operations and supply chain, jointly promote industrial environment improvements and create an ecosystem that will nurture the sustainable growth of the cruise industry. Our cooperation continues to receive great support from the Chinese government at both the central and local levels. We wish to continue our win-win partnership from today on, to ensure the delivery of the first large cruise ship to be built in China by 2023.”

Giuseppe Bono, CEO of Fincantieri, said: "This achievement with our strategic partners at Carnival Corporation and CSSC represents the hard work, determination and vision of our teams to continue developing the cruise industry for the benefit of Chinese travelers and capitalize on the enormous potential of the market.”

Bono added: “China represents a tremendous opportunity for the entire cruise industry, and we look forward to working together with our partners to leverage our collective expertise and leadership in the cruise sector to support China’s goal of developing its cruise shipbuilding capabilities and becoming a leading global cruise market.”

Published in: Cruise News

Fincantieri SigningFincantieri CEO Giuseppe Bono and the District Mayor of Baoshan, Fan Shaojun, have signed contracts aimed at creating a cruise hub in Shanghai, dedicated to shipbuilding and maritime endeavors. The contract was inked in the presence of the Deputy Prime Minister of Italy and Minister of Economic development and Labor Luigi Di Maio and the Chairman of Cassa depositi e prestiti Massimo Tononi,

The deal is based on the prior agreements between Fincantieri, China State Shipbuilding Corporation and Carnival Corporation announced in February 2017 and related to the construction of two cruise ships, the first ever made in China for the local market.

The new hub will act as a fundamental industrial basis to supply production.

The district will provide financing, tax commercial and administrative benefits, land for necessary development and other resources.

Fincantieri will promote the park in its network and in the industry as a whole.


          China Cruise Shipbuilding Plans Face Challenges      Cache   Translate Page      

Published in: Cruise News

Zhaoben Zhang

The quest to build megaships in China will be met with a variety of challenges, according to industry experts, speaking at China Cruise Shipping 13 in Shenzhen.

“By 2023, the first luxury cruise vessel will be delivered (from a Chinese yard), and before that, we will have two secondhand vessels,” said Zhaoben Zhang, executive president of the China Cruise and Yacht Industry Association.

Zhang was referring to China State Shipbuilding Corporation’s plans to acquire two 85,000-ton 2,800-guest ships that will join a domestic fleet in 2019 and 2020, respectively.

Zhang said China Merchants Group is also considering a plan to acquire and operate secondhand cruise ships.

“We have found manufacturing a cruise vessel (in China) will be challenging,” he added. “We’re not worried about the technology, we are most worried about the cultural and management differences as well as other legal issues.”

Raoul Jack, regional general manager for Bureau Veritas, said that many projects were looking to build new cruise ships in China.  

“Everyone was thinking about it or talking about in 2011 or 2012,” he said, “it’s clear that China is now involved in cruise ship building.”

“The question to ask is do you know what you do not know?” added Hans Eivind Siewers, segment director for passenger ships globally, DNV GL.

“Building a cruise ship is extremely complex with completely different challenges compared to building merchant ships,” he said

Before a luxury megaship is delivered from China State Shipbuilding Corporation, expedition vessels will come first, with SunStone set to debut the first of up to 10 built-in-China vessels in 2019 from China Merchants Heavy Industries.

Among the challenges are weight control, the polar code, safe return to port, change orders, quality control and more.

“Cruise ship projects are high value with high financial risk,” Siewers added.

Ronin Zong, a partner at Wikborg Rein in Shanghai, said that the design capacity, project management capacity and the entire supply chain in China is still coming together.

“All these have posed new challenges for Chinese shipyards,” he said. “Design and spec requirements are very different from other shipbuilding segments.”

“The under estimation of complexity in coordination has historically been a major contributor to cost and schedule overruns,” said Zong, suggesting that yards may want to first look at refits and drydocks to get their feet wet in the cruise market.


          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.

          China responde a la guerra comercial de EEUU abriendo su economía aún más      Cache   Translate Page      

MÉXICO, (Sputnik) 6 de Noviembre de 2018.- China incrementará sus importaciones y seguirá apoyando el principio de libre comercio. Así lo anunció Xi Jinping durante la ceremonia inaugural de la Exposición Internacional de Importaciones de China en Shanghái. El mandatario chino, en presencia de líderes extranjeros, expresó el compromiso del gigante asiático de abrir aún más su mercado. Más de 3.500 compañías de 150 países acudieron a Shanghái para participar en la primera exposición china dedicada enteramente a las importaciones. El interés es obvio: durante décadas, el gigante asiático era visto como una fuente de producción y exportación, pero las cosas están cambiando. El creciente nivel de vida de los chinos, sumado a una paulatina trasformación de la economía —que está pasando de un modelo de crecimiento extensivo a uno intensivo— poco a poco está haciendo del país el mayor mercado de productos y servicios del mundo. Así, el año pasado las importaciones chinas crecieron un 15,9%, hasta alcanzar la suma de 1,8 billones de dólares. Las autoridades del país se han propuesto incrementar esos volúmenes hasta los 10 billones de dólares. No obstante, algunos países siguen expresando su descontento con las barreras económicas que persisten en China. Los funcionarios de la UE apuntan a las dificultades a las que se enfrentan las compañías europeas a la hora de competir con las chinas dentro de su territorio, al tiempo que el mercado europeo está totalmente abierto a las compañías e inversiones chinas. EEUU, por su parte, no envió a ningún funcionario de alto nivel a la Exposición Internacional de Importaciones de China. La Administración actual en Washington ve en Pekín a su principal contrincante comercial y señalan que, sin un cambio fundamental en la política industrial y comercial china, será difícil resolver las contradicciones comerciales existentes. En su discurso inaugural, el mandatario chino llamó a los países del mundo a seguir fieles a los principios de un mercado libre. Pero este discurso estuvo dirigido principalmente a EEUU, dijo a Sputnik Li Kai, analista de la Universidad de Finanzas y Economía Shanxi. VP/Internacional/CVSR

          Bill Gates presenta un inodoro futurista que funciona sin agua      Cache   Translate Page      

CHINA, (RT), 6 de Noviembre de 2018 .-El cofundador de Microsoft comparó el porvenir del saneamiento con la revolución de las computadoras en la década de 1970. El multimillonario estadounidense y cofundador de Microsoft, Bill Gates, ha presentado este martes en Pekín (China) un inodoro que prescinde de agua o canalización, informa Reuters. El dispositivo, que realiza la conversión de desechos humanos en fertilizantes usando químicos, es fruto de años de desarrollo y está listo para salir al mercado, según anunció Gates. Hablando en Reinvented Toilet Expo, una exposición dedicada a los retretes, el empresario afirmó que el próximo paso será promocionar el concepto entre fabricantes. Gates comparó la transición de los inodoros tradicionales a los modelos que no usan agua con el desarrollo de tecnologías a mediados de la década de 1970, cuando apareció Microsoft. Según el millonario, el método de conversión química de excrementos se propagará entre los hogares de la misma forma que lo hicieron las computadoras, pasando de ser máquinas gigantes a dispositivos autónomos. La Fundación de Bill y Melinda Gates invirtió 200 millones de dólaresen el curso de siete años en proyectos de conversión de residuos humanos en agua o fertilizantes. Gates subrayó que el mal saneamiento es responsable de la muerte anual de medio millón de niños y costes adicionales de la sanidad por valor de 233.000 millones de dólares, reporta Bloomberg. Para respaldar sus palabras, el multimillonario mostró a los presentes un cubilete que, según él, podría contener 200 billones de células de rotavirus, 20.000 millones de bacterias Shigella y 100.000 huevos de gusanos parásitos.   VP/Internacional/SOH

          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.

          Seit 100 Tagen in Gefängnis und Hausarrest: Weiterhin Solidarität mit den chinesischen Basisgewerkschaftern von Jasic und ihren Unterstützungsgruppen nötig!      Cache   Translate Page      

Solidaritätsaktion mit den Jasic Gewerkschaftern in Hongkong am 31.7.20184 Jasic-Arbeiter und mindestens 11 Aktive verschiedener Unterstützungsgruppen befinden sich auch 100 Tage nach ihrer Festnahme immer noch entweder im Gefängnis oder unter Hausarrest, solidarische Studierende der Universität Beijing wurden auf verschiedene Weise bestraft – alles nur, weil sie ihr Recht auf gewerkschaftliche Organisation verwirklichen wollten. In dem Aufruf „CLB calls for the immediate release of all Jasic workers and supporters“ am 01. November 2018 beim China Labour Bulletin wird nicht nur auf diese simple Tatsache verwiesen, sondern auch aufgerufen, zum „Tag 100“ am 4. November erneut Solidarität zu zeigen. Das CLB weist in diesem Aufruf – der auch die Ereignisse der letzten Monate nochmals kurz zusammenfasst – darauf hin, dass auch der gerade stattgefundene 17. Gewerkschaftstag des ACFTU keinerlei Indizien dafür geliefert habe, dass vom staatlichen Gewerkschaftsbund irgendeine Initiative ausgehen könnte, die Interessen der Belegschaft zu vertreten, und dass es deshalb nach wie vor dafür zentral sei, die Angelegenheiten in die jeweils eigenen Hände zu nehmen. In dem Betrag auch nochmals der Link zur Solidaritätspetition aus Shenzhen. Siehe dazu auch den Hinweis auf unseren bisher letzten Beitrag zum Kampf bei Jasic

Die Marseillaise ist die Nationalhymne der Französischen Republik. Sie wurde von Claude Joseph Rouget de Lisle in der Nacht auf den 26. April 1792 während der Kriegserklärung an Österreich im elsässischen Straßburg verfasst.

Die Frankfurter Nationalversammlung (zeitgenössisch auch constituierende Reichsversammlung, deutsches Nationalparlament, Reichsparlament, auch bereits Reichstag) war von Mai 1848 bis Mai 1849 das verfassungsgebende Gremium der Deutschen Revolution sowie das vorläufige Parlament des entstehenden Deutschen Reiches. Die Nationalversammlung tagte in der Paulskirche in Frankfurt, daher steht häufig der Name Paulskirche für die Nationalversammlung.

Die Novemberrevolution von 1918/19 begann als Matrosenaufstand in Kiel und führte in der Endphase des Ersten Weltkrieges zum Sturz der Monarchie im Deutschen Reich und zu dessen Umwandlung in eine parlamentarische Demokratie, die Weimarer Republik.

Der Vietnamkrieg (englisch Vietnam War, vietnamesisch Chiến tranh Việt Nam; seltener auch Chiến tranh Mỹ „Amerikanischer Krieg“) wurde von etwa 1955 bis 1975 in und um Vietnam geführt. Weil er an den Indochinakrieg (1946–1954) anschloss und sich auf ganz Indochina erstreckte, wird er auch Zweiter Indochinakrieg genannt. Wegen der direkt und indirekt beteiligten Supermächte gilt er als Stellvertreterkrieg im Kalten Krieg.

Die Nelkenrevolution war der Militärputsch am 25. April 1974 gegen die autoritäre Diktatur des Estado Novo in Portugal. Der Putsch, der von der linksgerichteten Armeegruppe Movimento das Forças Armadas geführt wurde und von weiten Teilen der Bevölkerung unterstützt wurde, verlief weitgehend widerstandslos – vier Menschen starben jedoch, als verbleibende regimetreue Truppen auf unbewaffnete Demonstranten feuerten.

Als Arabischer Frühling oder auch Arabellion wird eine im Dezember 2010 beginnende Serie von Protesten, Aufständen und Revolutionen in der Arabischen Welt bezeichnet. Diese richten sich, beginnend mit der Revolution in Tunesien, in etlichen Staaten im Nahen Osten (Maschrek/Arabische Halbinsel) und in Nordafrika (Maghreb und Ägypten) gegen die dort autoritär herrschenden Regime und die politischen und sozialen Strukturen dieser Länder. Ursprünglich war der Begriff positiv besetzt und man erhoffte sich Verbesserung in Hinblick auf die Menschenrechtslage in den betroffenen Ländern; mittlerweile hat sich dieses Bild ins Gegenteil verkehrt.

Trainiere dein Hörverstehen mit den Nachrichten der Deutschen Welle von Montag – als Text und als verständlich gesprochene Audio-Datei.USA setzen weitere Iran-Sanktionen in Kraft Die USA setzen an diesem Montag die zweite und letzte Stufe ihrer Sanktionen gegen den Iran wieder in Kraft. Im Fokus steht die Ölindustrie der Islamischen Republik. Die Regierung von US-Präsident Donald Trump will mit den Strafmaßnahmen nach eigenen Angaben die Regierung in Teheran unter anderem dazu bringen, ihre Atom- und Raketenprogramme aufzugeben. Trump hatte im Mai das internationale Atomabkommen mit dem Iran aufgekündigt. Betroffen von den Sanktionen sind auch deutsche Firmen. Unternehmen, die sich nicht an den Sanktionen beteiligen, werden von den USA bestraft. Chinas Staatschef verspricht weitere wirtschaftliche Öffnung Chinas Staatschef Xi Jinping will sein Land weiter für den Weltmarkt öffnen. Bei der Eröffnung einer internationalen Importmesse in Shanghai wandte sich Xi gegen Protektionismus und plädierte für ein freies weltweites Handelssystem. China selbst wolle seine Einfuhren erhöhen, den heimischen Konsum steigern wie auch den Schutz der Urheberrechte verbessern. Xi sprach sich zudem gegen Unilateralismus aus, was auf die "Amerika zuerst"-Politik von US-Präsident Donald Trump zielt. Konkreter wurde er nicht. Etwa 3600 Unternehmen aus rund 130 Ländern stellen auf der Messe bis Samstag aus. Khashoggis Söhne fordern von Saudi-Arabien Leichnam ihres Vaters Die Söhne des getöteten saudi-arabischen Journalisten Jamal Khashoggi haben die Führung in Riad aufgefordert, ihnen den Leichnam ihres Vaters zu übergeben. Sie wollten ihn auf einem Friedhof in Medina beisetzen, sagte Salah Khashoggi dem US-Nachrichtensender CNN. Sein Bruder Abdullah erklärte, er hoffe, dass sein Vater "ohne Schmerz oder schnell" gestorben sei. Khashoggi war Anfang Oktober im Konsulat seines Landes in Istanbul von saudischen Agenten ermordet worden. Nach türkischen Angaben wurde die Leiche des Regierungskritikers anschließend zerstückelt und mit Säure zersetzt. Deutschland und Frankreich gedenken Endes des Ersten Weltkriegs Der französische Staatschef Emmanuel Macron und sein deutscher Amtskollege Frank-Walter Steinmeier haben bei einem Friedenskonzert im Elsass des Endes des Ersten Weltkrieges vor 100 Jahren gedacht. Das Treffen im Straßburger Münster war Auftakt für eine ganze Serie von Gedenkveranstaltungen in Frankreich. Diese sollen erst am 11. November mit einem Treffen von rund 60 Staats- und Regierungschefs in Paris abgeschlossen werden. Der Erste Weltkrieg war vor allem zwischen Deutschland und Frankreich sehr verbissen geführt worden - die jahrelange Schlacht bei Verdun steht bis heute stellvertretend für die Schrecken des Krieges. Die Zukunft von Verfassungsschutz-Chef Maaßen ist wieder offen Der Streit um den bisherigen Verfassungsschutzpräsidenten Hans-Georg Maaßen geht in eine neue Runde: Wie am Sonntag aus Koalitionskreisen verlautete, soll Maaßen nun doch in den einstweiligen Ruhestand versetzt werden. Mit kritischen Äußerungen über die große Koalition soll sich der 55-Jährige, der eigentlich als Sonderberater ins Bundesinnenministerium wechseln sollte, erneut in die Schusslinie gebracht haben. Laut dem Nachrichtenmagazin "Der Spiegel" hatte sich Maaßen Mitte Oktober bei einer Rede vor den Chefs der europäischen Inlandsgeheimdienste als Opfer einer Verschwörung dargestellt. Koalition in Bayern kann starten Gut drei Wochen nach der Landtagswahl kommt an diesem Montag das neugewählte Parlament in Bayern zu seiner ersten Sitzung zusammen. Schon am Vormittag soll die Regierungsbildung von CSU und Freien Wählern offiziell ihren Abschluss finden. Nach der Zustimmung der Parteigremien am Sonntagabend wollen Ministerpräsident Markus Söder und der Chef der Freien Wähler, Hubert Aiwanger, den Koalitionsvertrag unterzeichnen. Bereits am Dienstagmorgen soll Söder dann im Landtag wieder zum Ministerpräsidenten gewählt werden.

           WORLD EMMANUEL MACRON CALLS FOR ‘TRUE, EUROPEAN ARMY’ TO PROTECT AGAINST U.S., CHINA AND RUSSIA      Cache   Translate Page      

By Jason Lemon 


On Tuesday, November 6, 2018 - 10:41

French President Emmanuel Macron has urged the creation of a “true, European army” to protect the continent from Russia, China and the United States.

"We have to protect ourselves with respect to China, Russia and even the United States of America," Macron told Europe 1 radio on Tuesday, Agence France-Presse reported.

Pointing to recent decisions by President Donald Trump, the 40-year-old French leader warned that European security is at risk.

“When I see President Trump announcing that he's quitting a major disarmament treaty which was formed after the 1980s Euro-missile crisis that hit Europe, who is the main victim?” he asked. “Europe and its security.” The French president concluded that Europe needed a unified military in order to “protect” itself.

Macron has previously expressed his view that Europe should jointly coordinate military actions, the BBC reported. Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel has also backed such a plan, saying in June that it would be part of "the structure of defense cooperation.”

“It is up to us to guarantee European security,” Macron said in an August speech, adding that the continent could no longer rely on the U.S. for protection.

“President Macron's call for a greater European effort in defense derives from two sets of factors,” the BBC’s defense correspondent Jonathan Marcus explained, “his support for the greater European project on the one hand, but also horror at much that the Trump administration is doing on the other, with its overturning of treaties and so on.”


While Macron, who took office in May 2017, just a few months after Trump, initially appeared to have a positive relationship with the American president, they have since sparred publicly over numerous issues such as the Paris climate accords, trade tariffs and the Iran nuclear agreement. Last month, the French president stressed the importance of the Cold War–era Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty in a direct discussion with Trump, after the White House signaled it would withdraw from the decades-old agreement.



Despite the French president’s warnings and concerns, he will host Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin at the 100-year anniversary of the end of World War I on November 11 in Paris. At the end of October, Trump described the upcoming trip as “very exciting” in a tweet, and said he had just spoken to the French president to discuss the celebration.

However, Trump also described the European Union as a “foe” last summer. When asked about world powers he saw as threats to the U.S., the president mentioned the longtime U.S. allies first, before also pointing to Russia and China.

“Well, I think we have a lot of foes. I think the European Union is a foe, what they do to us in trade,” he said. “Now you wouldn't think of the European Union, but they're a foe."

Song Do, the new designed city of the future is having teething problems. How long will it last as the sea level rises and reclaims the marshland the city took over? But it also has a very dark side. <i>LOOKING wistfully around at the surroundings, a strange mix of marshland and random high-rise buildings, Shim Jong-rae shakes his head, echoing the sentiment of many residents: “It’s a ghost town.” For more than a decade, urban planners have been studying the construction of Songdo, South Korea, the world’s first Smart City. Built within 25 miles of Seoul, it was to be the antithesis of the suffocating, overpopulated capital. A new way of thinking for more than 300,000 residents, spread out over 600 hectares of reclaimed land from the Yellow Sea. The brainchild of developers and the government, the vision was to construct a car-free world, with 40 per cent green space and dozens of kilometres of cycling routes. <i></i> https://www.scmp.com/week-asia/business/article/2137838/south-koreas-smart-city-songdo-not-quite-smart-enough But even worse, Songdo represents ecohabitat destruction. </i><i> Reclamation of internationally important tidal-flats at Song Do, as elsewhere, however, has already resulted in substantial declines in some species of waterbird at the local, national and even population level. Some of the species in decline are globally-threatened. These declines will continue further with further reclamation Simply, a genuine eco-city would not be built on tidal-flats. A genuine eco-city would cherish remaining tidal-flats, and aim to restore and enhance intertidal wetland – and not permit or promote its destruction. Unlike the ROK and China, most nations already gave up large-scale tidal-flat reclamation several decades ago. Now, the United States of America, the UK, the Netherlands, Germany and Italy among a host of other nations, are instead actively investing in restoring coastal wetlands and tidal-flats. Restoration, while expensive and less efficient than conservation of natural intertidal wetland, still helps these nations to move closer to meeting their formal obligations to the conservation conventions, and to help conserve migratory bird and fish species that depend on tidal-flats. It also allows them (and future generations of their citizens), to reap the multiple environmental, social and economic benefits of conservation through restoring ecosystem health and services. Is this really the most economical, efficient and environmentally-sound use of land that until a few years ago was some of the most naturally productive and wildlife-rich wetland in the world?<i></i> http://www.birdskorea.org/Habitats/Wetlands/Songdo/BK-HA-Songdo-Is-Song-Do-an-Example-of-Sustainable-Development.shtml Anyone see a triple whammy here?</i>

The USA is an insane, narcotic economy, the progenitor of Latin American, drug baron states, like Colombia. The toy of militarily imposed, unilinear history, has nostalgic appeal to those people of limited comprehension, such as Richard Spencer. From "The Coming War on China", by John Pilger USA's 'China trade' [42:42] [narrator of Fu Manchu film] Behind the mask of Fu Manchu. [42:48] [Johnathan Pilger] This caricature of an entire people concealed another agenda, opium. For the American elite, in the 19th century, China was a gold mine of drugs. [James Bradley, author 'The China Mirage'] Warren Delano, the grandfather of Franklin Delano Roosevelt was the American opium King of China. He was the biggest American opium dealer, second to the British. He welcomed the first American ship into China, to help out with the opium wars, and much of the East Coast of America, Columbia; Harvard; Yale; Princeton; were born from opium money. The American Industrial Revolution was funded by huge pools of money. Where did this come from? It came from illegal drugs, in the biggest market in the world, China. [Johnathan Pilger] Let me get this right, the grandfather of arguably the most liberal president, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, was a drug runner? [James Bradley, author 'The China Mirage'] Yes sir, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, never made much money in his life. He had public service jobs that were very lowly paid, but he had yachts, he had summer homes, he had mansions in New York City; the kids went to private schools. He inherited a fortune from Warren Delano, his father, who was the American opium king of China. If you scratch anyone with the name, Forbes, in in their name; John Forbes Kerry, Secretary of State, John Forbes Kerry. [Johnathan Pilger] That's the president's Secretary of State. [James Bradley, author 'The China Mirage'] Yes sir, you'll find opium money, his great-grandfather was an opium dealer. How big was opium money? Opium money built the first industrial city in the United States, Lowell, Massachusetts. It built the first five railroads in the United States. Opium money, all over the East Coast, but it wasn't talked about, it was called the China trade, and if you go to various museums, you can see teas and silks exhibited; and they keep quiet about all that big opium money. [Johnathan Pilger] In the scramble to get opium money China was invaded and colonized by Britain and the other imperial powers. Foreign armies grabbed whole swathes of China. This is the American army in Tiananmen Square, Peking, in 1900. Great cities like Shanghai were taken over and declared 'concessions', and foreigners lived a life of privilege and luxury amidst terrible poverty imposed on the Chinese. [Music] [Johnathan Pilger] A resistance known as the Boxer Rebellion was put down with a savagery. This rape of China set the tone for how China was perceived in the West, well into the 20th century. This is the distinguished historian, Theodore H. White, an advisor to the White House, speaking in the 1960s. [Theodore H. White] Perhaps, China is too vast to be governed by mercy. Yet if Chinese mind craves order, they must be brought to recognize they are the biggest factor in the world's disorder, and we must untangle the madness of their mind. The most difficult task in the world, is to reach the minds of men who hate you. [Johnathan Pilger] What White was really complaining about was the loss of a China that the Imperial West could dominate, and the defeat of General Chiang Kai-Shek, who with his famously powerful Christian wife, Maeling Sung (Soong Mei-ling), guarded America's interests in China. That is, until they were thrown out in 1949 by a Communist revolution led by Mao Zedong. It's interesting that cocaine, the drug of corporate capitalism and aggression, constitutes the US market that Latin American drug barons cater to.

They are mistreating Uyghur Muslims, so it's more likely to be you detained in those camps, Wagner. Your brand of right-wing Nietzschean existentialism shares essentially the same values as fundamentalist Islam. China is producing more patents than the USA. If the USA had the same population as China, what would it be like? You would have had Civil War long ago. But you did have Civil War long ago, it didn't really stop, did it, Wagner? Both you and Colitis (Colen Ryan) are rotting and rusty filing cabinets from a hallucinated war room. Those cabinets are full of outdated reports, bad ideas, and old books, that you don't understand. None of it works as an argument, on every level the two of you are relentlessly incompetent. So that only leaves the hallucinated war room, an argument you both incessantly keep referring to, because that's all the two of you have. Two status robots, trying to hide their class resentments, inferiority, and bigotry, in a nuclear winter of self-hate (Wagner - "Most on the cyber-right only call themselves patriots for optical purposes. We hate this place.").

          Watch the moment a Russian jet appears to fly 'dangerously' close to US aircraft      Cache   Translate Page      

Watch the moment a Russian jet appears to fly 'dangerously' close to US aircraftThe United States has said a Russian jet flew dangerously close to an American military plane over the Black Sea on Monday, putting its crew at risk. A US navy EP-3 reconnaissance plane based in Greece was flying in international airspace on Monday when a SU-27 overtook and passed directly in front of it, creating turbulence for the slower turboprop aircraft.   About 25 minutes later, the SU-27 made another close-quarters pass and then banked away while applying the afterburner in its twin engines, which sent vibrations through the EP-3.  The US navy said its plane had not provoked these actions and called on Russia to follow international standards to avoid crashes.  “This interaction was irresponsible,” it said in a statement. “Unsafe actions‎ increase the risk of miscalculation and potential for midair collisions.” Pentagon spokesman Eric Pahon said the encounter put the US pilots and crew at risk. The two aircraft did not communicate although the navy plane had its transponder on, he said.  A Russian SU-27 comes within a few feet of a US reconnaissance jet over the Baltic Sea in June 2017 Credit: Master Sgt. Charles Larkin Sr /US EUROPEAN COMMAND  The Russian defence ministry said it had scrambled the SU-27 to intercept an “unknown air target” approaching its borders, but denied that any risky behaviour. “The fighter jet reported the identification of the American signals intelligence plane and accompanied it, not allowing it to violate the borders of Russian Federation airspace while following all necessary safety measures,” it said.  Tensions have been running high as Nato holds its largest military exercises since the Cold War in northern Europe, manoeuvres that were largely meant as a response to Russia's own record-setting military exercises with China in September.   Monday's encounter was the latest in a string of Russian intercepts that United States called unprofessional. SU-27s flew within five feet of an EP-3 in January and within 20 feet of a P-8 surveillance plane in May. A SU-27 came “within several feet” of another US reconnaissance plane over the Baltic Sea in June 2017.  A British soldier fires a machine gun in Norway last week as part of the Nato Trident Juncture exercises  Credit: Leon Neal/Getty Close encounters between the West and Russia skyrocketed in 2014 amid tensions over Moscow's annexation of Crimea and support for separatists in eastern Ukraine.  A report by a London think tank counted 39 military encounters in eight months that year, warning that “more aggressive Russian posturing and the readiness of Western forces to show resolve increases the risk of unintended escalation and the danger of losing control over events”. In the most hair-raising incident, a Russian reconnaissance aircraft that had reportedly failed to transmit its position nearly collided with an SAS 737 passenger airliner taking off from Copenhagen.  An American EP-3 had to make an emergency landing in Hainan in 2001 after a Chinese J-8 fighter jet crashed into it during an intercept, causing an international dispute. The Chinese jet broke apart and the pilot was killed.

          Abbandonato per telefono per un altro - bulimia nervosa e dipendenza, chiedo consigli      Cache   Translate Page      
Vi racconto la mia storia, conosciuta 7 anni fa cominciamo ad uscire lei “pazza” di me ed io pure. Vedevo altre donne prima ma ho subito staccato, lei mi prende di più. Lei 41 anni io 32. La sera usciamo insieme ovviamente giriamo tutti i locali beviamo vino ma ogni tanto lei piange una volta perche il figlio fa una cavolata un'altra volta, perche mangia. Poi noto che va in bagno vomita: è bulimica. Allora leggo cerco di capire noto che mangia solo all’aperitivo e si incavola se dico mangia. A volte cerco di farle capire ma non riesco, cambio tattica, si mangia di meno ma meglio. Dopo mangiato mi grida addosso litiga per nulla, ma penso fa niente sarà nervosa perché siamo fuori e non può vomitare. Poi escono che lei ha un po’ di problemi economici, nel tempo mi rendo conto che ne ha sempre di più mi dice qualcosa in più ma cmq sempre bugie come capisco dopo. Mi dice di possedere una casa fittata ma nemmeno questo è vero ( a che pro dirlo). Un giorno mentre guardiamo il suo cell le arriva un messaggio: ma allora ti piace farti leccare i piedi. Capisco che era una conversazione gia iniziata e cancellata. Le spiego che non è il massimo per me che lei parli con un uomo di questo. Abbiamo le pass social. Lei incontra il tipo da sola e dice di averci parlato, intanto apro il suo fb e lei ci continua a parlare con il lui che continua a dirle che bello averti rivisto e tutte faccine cuori e sorrisi, lei cancella questo messaggio. Allora io la chiamo e mi arrabbio dico che le bugie o ste cose fan male perche uno può anche pensare al peggio, lei piange. Intanto comincia a mangiare meglio noto che nn perde piu le forze mentre usciamo. Una sera in un pub vedo che messaggia e mi dice che lo fa con le colleghe, perfetto sorride. Arriviamo a casa mentre guardiamo un video sul suo cell le arriva una risata da un nome maschile, dico cavolo era questo e non mi fa leggere il cell dicendo che se lei è la quello è l’importante, io rispondo se tutti dicessero cosi le corna nn esisterebbero, lei lo legge traverso e mi comincia a prendere a schiaffi. Io prendo e me ne vado. Mi chiama piangendo e mi promette di farmi leggere i messaggi se torno. Torno lei mi piange, il suo cell scarico e dormiamo insieme. L’indomani mi è passata la rabbia, devo tornare a casa e nn prendo il suo cell. Due giorni dopo messaggi cancellati le chiedo spiegazioni nn me le da. Le compro una bici e quando sono lontano le chiedo di mandarmi una foto sopra, dice di averla mandata anche al figlio. Una sera quando è su per lavoro dice di essere a casa ma è chiaramente in macchina nega attacca. Mando il mess vocale ad un mio amico e anche lui capisce che è in macchina. Torna da me un po’ giu e le dico che essendo stata spesso bugiarda rischia che divento ossessivo. Nulla da fare le chiedo il cell e parla con un uomo di cui non conoscevo l’esistenza ovviamente cuoricini e baci vari più la foto di lei sulla bici. Si prende il cell e non parla senza farmi leggere nulla. Scendo a prendere le siga vedo che lei prende il cell e fa qualcosa con i messaggi, la lascio davanti casa e vuole farmi leggere i mess io dico inutile tanto hai cancellato. Mi sbatte il tel addosso scende dalla macchina mi prende la gola e mi sbatte vicino al muro, per fortuna passano due vigilantes gli imploro in lacrime di farla andare via mentre lei si è nascosta. Poi nulla lei sopra chiedendo avvicinamento io sotto che lavoricchio, lei mi chiede di andare a vivere da lei, ma io quando sono salito noto che va bene 3 i giorni poi diventa irascibile, basta un piatto in lavandino e non messo in lavatrice oppure un anta aperta dell’armadio per farla imbestialire, appena le dico si scusa dai è una cavolata saltano i nervi. Viene la sua amica a casa e lei si mette per oltre un ora a parlare con lei senza calcolarmi. A me da un po fastidio cambio camera e lei si incazza per questo. Le spiego questo e non va, noto che quando parlo l’amica interrompe e parla solo con lei,. Per chiudere la cosa passano i sette anni, io trovo lavoro vicino a lei nel mentre il figlio combina un casino economico e chiede di poi prendere una casa a tre, io gli dico ok ma hai due cani grandi e se ci spostiamo di qualche km per scegliere un posto un po’ più vicino al luogo di lavoro. Nulla. chiamo la mamma e le dico nel peggiore dei casi prendo casetta da solo in modo che lei aiuta il figlio a pagare l’affitto ed io nn ho cani grossi in casa ( non sono contro i cani ma uscire ogni volta pieno di peli mi da noia) lei mi grida addosso dicendo che sono come il suo ex e che sono un fallito. Comincia cosi. Esce dicendo di essere andata al pub con il figlio ma non è vero è uscita con un amico , lo scopro e mi arrabbio. Poi per giorni nn si fa sentire mi dice che ha dei casini e poi mi chiamerà. Mi chiama e si fa mandare 100 euro, scopro pero che è andata in spagna ed allora le dico ti odio vai in spagna e ti fai dare i soldi perché non ti bastano. Torna sotto parliamo in macchina e cmq non cedo salgo in macchina sto andando via, lei mi richiama piangendo, allora io ok andiamo a parlare davanti ad un pub, lei messaggia con un nuovo amico del suo paese dice sembra gay e mi dice cosa scrivono. Io nn posso dire niente senno ricomincia che sono ossessivo. Ma ormai nn la vedo piu bella a letto nn si fa piu l’amore sto giu anche perche il discorso lavoro salta ed io le avevo detto qualche mese prima sono un po’ depresso scusa ora cerca tu di fare l’uomo. Prendiamo anche un paio di caffe con questo uomo, non mi piace ha il viso viscido e nn mi guarda neppure. Torno a casa mia, lei mi richiama dicendo che le manco, mangiamo fuori lei piange dicendo che forse le piacerebbe restare giu poi la sera dopo si mangia pizza con la mamma si parla di prendere casa insieme. Torno a casa che devo aiutare i miei a ristrutturarla. Cinque giorni dopo mi dice che è andata a letto con questo è felice ora in casa canta pure la mamma lo ha notato io non devo rovinarle più la vita. Dopo tre giorni dopo che le mando una mail mi chiama dicendo che non lo ama ma ci si trova bene a me non mi ama ma mi vuole bene e che non sa se si può recuperare ci si deve vedere per caffè ma il nuovo non sa niente. Io piango lei attacca mi richiama e cmq mi continua a dare in testa come prima mi grida che devo lasciare il mio paese devo andar via da casa, io allora le dico pacato sono contento che stai bene proverò anche io, lei blocca di urlare balbetta due parole che non capisco e attacca. mi ha bloccato da fb continua a scrivere che è felice , l’ amica persino scrive sotto un suo link che finalmente dopo anni la vede sorridere e scrive: evviva seguito dal nome del nuovo martire ovviamente ci sto male. Ultimo sul mio profilo fb ho messo foto di un cartone animato, beh lei dopo due giorni una foto di un cartone e credetemi mai fatto lei in 7 anni. Le faccio chiedere di cambiare password della sua mail che sa che io ho nche perché tentazione di entrare forte e leggo che manda una mail al nuovo con scritto ti amo. Ora sono quattro mesi che nn la sento e un po’ male ci sto. Ditemi per piacere che pensate di questa storia, particolare lei o un po’ troppo dipendente io? Grazie a chi vorra spendere un po’ di tempo a leggere e commentare

Richtig. “Angestrebt ist, dass sie mit den exakt selben Spezifikationen hergestellt werden.” - das könnte zum Problem werden - vor allem, wenn die Hersteller es gar nicht nötig haben, darauf einzugehen. Aber man wird ja bei Tesla jetzt schon eine Vorstellung haben, wie es funktionieren kann. Bei der Autoproduktion waren sie noch Greenhorns aber in der Batterietechnologie macht ihnen keiner was vor. Ich glaube nicht, dass es eine eigene Qualität "China-Tesla" geben wird.

Deshalb meinte ich ja vor Tagen, dass 2020 für den Fertigungsbeginn möglich wäre, da man das ja Abschnittsweise gestalten kann. Ich hab gelesen (find es aber nicht mehr - ist aber auch absolut anzunehmen), dass unterdessen Tesla Grohmann für China dran ist. Wenn die die Fertigungsstraßen so aufbauen, wie sie in Fremont jeweils gut funktionieren, gibt es einen grandiosen Zeitgewinn beim Produktionshochfahren. Wichtig wären nur gute Verträge mit den verschiedenen Batteriezellenherstellern - damit es dabei nicht hakt.

Hab ich die Meldung über den Kaufvertrag verpasst? Der Weg erleichtert scheinbar den Einstieg in den Markt. Man braucht erstmal keine eigene Zellfertigung, die in der F1 wohl den Löwenanteil an Geld, Power und Maschinen + Platz verballert hat. Vielleicht hat das Duo P&T einfach Schiss in der Hose, das man zu viel der Fertigungstechnologie abgreift . Ich würde niemals auf nur ein Stein in Rot-China fertigen. Für mich ist Indien der Favorit, aber Tesla wird sich das schon gut überlegt haben. Das mindert die finanziellen Aufwendungen erheblich, zumal Tesla ja seine Modul Maschinen selbst fertigt (in D.) und damit eine Punktladung hinkriegen kann (Lieferung je nach Bauabschnitt.

Roles of Cyclooxygenase-2 gene -765G > C (rs20417) and -1195G > A (rs689466) polymorphisms in gastric cancer: A systematic review and meta-analysis.

Gene. 2018 Oct 31;:

Authors: Luo MX, Long BB, Li F, Zhang C, Pan MT, Huang YQ, Chen B

Abstract
BACKGROUND: The roles of cyclooxygenase-2 (COX2) -765G > C (rs20417) and -1195G > A (rs689466) polymorphisms in gastric cancer were intensively analyzed, but the results of these studies were inconsistent. We conducted a meta-analysis and trial sequential analysis to elucidate the associations between these two COX2 polymorphisms and gastric cancer risk.
METHODS: Eligible studies were searched in PubMed, Embase, Cochrane library databases, China National Knowledge Infrastructure, Vip, and Wanfang databases. Odds ratios (ORs) with 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were used to assess the genetic correlation between COX2 polymorphisms and gastric cancer susceptibility in five genetic models. Trial sequential analysis (TSA) was conducted to estimate whether the evidence of the results is sufficient. Furthermore, their interactions with Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) or smoking in gastric cancer were also assessed using a case-only method.
RESULTS: The COX2 gene -765G > C polymorphism showed no significant association with gastric cancer susceptibility under all the five genetic models (take the allelic model for example: OR = 1.41, 95% CI: 0.95-2.09) in total analysis, and the stratification analysis by ethnicity indicated a similar association in Caucasian group under four genetic models (allelic model, dominant model, homozygous model, and heterozygous model). But in the subgroup of the Asian population, the -765G > C polymorphism was significantly associated with gastric cancer risk under the same contrast. The COX2 -1195G > A polymorphism showed significant correlation with gastric cancer susceptibility in total analysis, and stratification analysis by ethnicity also revealed a similar association in both Asian and Caucasian groups under the same contrast. Moreover, TSA confirmed such associations. Both H. pylori infection and cigarette smoking interacted with -765 C allele in gastric cancer (OR = 3.79, 95% CI: 1.15-12.43 and OR = 2.48, 95% CI: 1.38-4.48, respectively), but not in -1195 A allele (OR = 1.96, 95% CI: 0.62-6.21, and OR = 1.24, 95% CI: 0.93-1.64, respectively).
CONCLUSIONS: COX2 -765G > C polymorphism may serve as a genetic biomarker of gastric cancer in Asians, but not in Caucasians. COX2 -1195G > A polymorphism may serve as a genetic biomarker of gastric cancer in both Asians and Caucasians. The -765G > C, rather than -1195G > A polymorphism interacted with H. pylori infection or cigarette smoking to increase gastric cancer risk.

The complete mitochondrial genome of Parantica sita sita (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae: Danainae) revealing substantial genetic divergence from its sibling subspecies P. s. niphonica.

Gene. 2018 Oct 31;:

Authors: Hu P, Wang R

Abstract
Currently, there are two subspecies of the chestnut tiger butterfly (Parantica sita) recognized in China. P. s. sita is widely distributed in southwest China and P. s. niphonica in Taiwan. Periodically, Taiwan Island and the Chinese mainland have been connected and separated because of sea level changes caused by Pleistocene glaciations, most likely influencing the genetic structure among P. sita populations on both sides of the Taiwan Strait. Also, P. s. niphonica's well-documented long-distance migration may have influenced genetic differentiation within this species as well. So, investigation of the genetic differentiation of these two subspecies is well warranted. In this study, we sequenced the complete mitogenome (15,156 bp in length) of P. s. sita and its general characteristics agreed with general butterfly mitogenomic characteristics. However, when compared genetically with P. s. niphonica, P. s. sita diverged substantially. First, there were 4.1% variable sites between these two subspecies, with 5.3% at COI and 3.8% at COII, differences much greater than those expected of general interspecific divergences in butterflies. Second, there was a 59 bp fragment deletion in the A + T rich region of P. s. sita and, third, the relationships of these two subspecies and P. luzonensis could not be distinguished using Bayesian inference and P. s. niphonica first clustered with P. luzonensis, rather than P. s. sita, using maximum likelihood. Based on these results, we propose that P. s. sita and P. s. niphonica are independent species instead of subspecies. This proposal should be clarified through further research.

OPPO RX17 Pro: el primer buque insignia con triple cámara de OPPO recorta en potencia para competir en precio#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

El fabricante chino OPPO nos presenta hoy desde Milán su nuevo buque insignia. Se trata del OPPO RX17 Pro, un modelo de la serie R que se unirá al Find X como representante de la gama alta en la compañía. Estamos ante un móvil con unas características muy llamativas y una muestra de cómo los teléfonos chinos están liderando el mercado cada vez más.

En el OPPO RX17 Pro tenemos un smartphone con tonos degradados en su cuerpo de cristal, una pantalla de 6,4 pulgadas coronada por un pequeño 'notch' en forma de gota de agua y en la parte trasera se ha añadido por primera vez en la firma una triple cámara, cuyo sensor principal cuenta además con apertura variable. Una curiosa mezcla entre la tendencia iniciada por el P20 Pro y el Samsung Galaxy S9.

Además del apartado fotográfico renovado, este OPPO RX17 Pro cuenta con el sistema de carga ultra rápida Super VOOC. Sin embargo en esta ocasión se ha apostado por recortar en el procesador para rebajar su precio sustancialmente, en comparación al menos con el OPPO Find X. Esto es lo que nos ofrece técnicamente el nuevo OPPO RX17 Pro.

Oppo Rx17 Pro

OPPO promete un ratio de pantalla de nada menos que el 91,5%, superior al que tenemos con otros modelos como el Mate 20. Sin embargo según los datos de GSMArena estaríamos en un ratio real del 85,9%, igualmente elevado pero más acorde con lo que vemos. Para conseguir este número se nos ofrece un móvil con una pantalla AMOLED de 6,4 pulgadas con resolución FullHD+. Para hacernos una idea, se trata del mismo tipo de panel del OPPO Find X con la diferencia que en esta ocasión tenemos una muesca en forma de gota de agua en la parte superior. Justo en ese hueco es donde tendremos la cámara frontal de 25 megapíxeles.

Adicionalmente, el OPPO RX17 Pro incorpora lector de huellas integrado en la pantalla que promete desbloquear el móvil en 0,41 segundos. Una tecnología que ya hemos ido viendo en terminales como el OnePlus 6T. De hecho, este modelo guarda un gran parecido con el modelo de OnePlus, un fabricante que recordemos pertenece al mismo grupo que OPPO.

El cuerpo del dispositivo está fabricado en cristal y viene protegido con el cristal Gorilla Glass 6 para mejorar la protección ante golpes y rayaduras. El diseño tiene formas redondeadas y una trasera de cristal que estará disponible en tonos verdes o un degradado que combina tonos azulados y violetas.

Un punto por debajo en procesador respecto al resto de gamas alta

Sea por no hacerse la competencia con otros modelos de la casa o simplemente por intentar ajustar más el coste, lo cierto es que este OPPO RX17 Pro se diferencia del resto de buques insignia ya que no incorpora el mejor procesador disponible. En vez del habitual Snapdragon 845, encontraremos el Snapdragon 710. Un chipset fabricado en 10 nanómetros que también cuenta con funciones para potenciar la IA, pero cuya potencia es notablemente inferior al incorporar una GPU Adreno 616.

Para intentar paliar esta falta de rendimiento, se añaden 6GB de memoria RAM. Una cantidad elevada pero que difícilmente hará olvidar a sus usuarios que no disponen del procesador de Qualcomm más avanzado. Para el almacenamiento, tenemos 128GB UFS 2.1.

Oppo Azul

Donde sí destaca el OPPO RX17 Pro es en el apartado de la batería. Se integran dos unidades de 1.850 mAh para formar una batería de 3.700 mAh con carga rápida Super VOOC de segunda generación. Un sistema que promete cargar hasta el 40% en solo 10 minutos con un cargador que combina dos vías de 5V y 5A. Una promesa que al menos en el OPPO Find X sí se cumplen y ya pudimos comprobar como los 3.700 mAh se cargan en menos de 40 minutos.

Lamentablemente todavía no tenemos la última versión de Android y deberemos conformarnos con una versión de Color OS basada en Android 8.1 Oreo. Respecto a la conectividad, aquí sí aparecerán todos los elementos, desde el NFC hasta el minijack de auriculares.

Triple cámara con una apertura variable que nos recuerda a Samsung

Oppo Rx17

El apartado fotográfico es uno de los campos de batalla más relevantes dentro de la telefonía móvil y OPPO también quiere destacar. Su estrategia para conseguirlo es una combinación entre cantidad de cámaras, un modo nocturno y un sensor con apertura variable. Para la cámara frontal, el OPPO RX17 Pro incorpora un único sensor de 25 megapíxeles y con una lente de apertura f/2.0.

Para la cámara principal tenemos un sensor de 12 megapíxeles con píxeles de 1,4µm y apertura variable f/1.5-2.4, exactamente la misma fórmula que hemos visto en los últimos móviles de Samsung. Acompañando, tenemos un sensor de 20 megapíxeles y apertura f/2.6, presumiblemente para telefoto.

En tercer lugar, encontramos un sensor de profundidad 'TOF 3D' para aplicar el desenfoque y también capturar imágenes tridimensionales. Un efecto no tan popular como el modo retrato pero que también lo hemos visto en otros móviles, eso sí, normalmente ubicado en la cámara frontal. Respecto al vídeo, se añade estabilización óptica de imagen (OIS) para permitir capturar vídeo en 4K a 30fps.

Royole's FlexPai foldable smartphone

  • Startup display maker Royole on Monday showed off its new foldable flexible screen gadget, getting out ahead of Samsung.
  • When folded in half, the device can function as two different smartphones.
  • When unfolded, it can act like a tablet.
  • Its flexible screen is cool, but feels more like a gimmick than a useful feature.

I just got to put my hands on what's supposed to be the future of smartphones.

My first impression: The future still needs some work.

The ostensible gadget of tomorrow is a foldable phone with a flexible screen. Samsung is widely expected to unveil its idea for just such a device at a conference on Wednesday. But it was beaten to the punch Monday night by Royole, a startup display and device maker.

Royole CEO Bill Liu with some devices that use the company's flexible OLED displays, as seen in San Francisco on August, 22, 2018.At a small press event, company CEO Bill Liu showed off the FlexPai, which he dubbed the world's first commercially available flexible screen foldable phone. The device, when folded, looks something like a small notebook with a wraparound screen. When opened, it looks like a small tablet.

"We've been working on this a long time," Liu told Business Insider.

Royole designed the FlexPai to address two significant shortcomings of traditional smartphones — their screens are fragile, and they're not really big enough for many tasks, such as watching movies or editing documents.

Unlike nearly all smartphones, the FlexPai screen isn't encased in glass. Its display is an OLED screen that's printed on a thin plastic material. The screen is scratch resistant and, because it doesn't use any glass, it's shatter-proof. It can be bent 200,000 times without breaking, Liu said.

"It's a significant breakthrough," he said. He continued: "Say goodbye to broken screens."

The FlexPai can act as a phone or a tablet

The FlexPai has a hinge in its middle that allows you to fold it to the point where its two ends touch or unfold it to a 180-degree angle. The hinge is stiff enough that it will maintain any angle in between those two points. So, one thing you can do with it is to fold it part-way to form an "A" shape and have it stand up on its two ends.

The device runs a custom version of Android that Royole calls Water OS that it designed specifically for the FlexPai's flexible screen. One thing it allows you to do is to show a different video on each side of the device's screen when its folded, so you and a friend could potentially watch two different things at the same time.

The FlexPai supports dual SIM cards. When it's folded in half, you can use the screens on the front and back as, essentially, two different phones, each associated with a different SIM.

Royole's FlexPai foldable smartphone, folded in halfBut the flexible screen is perhaps most useful when you actually unfold it and you can see the full 7.8" display in its entirety. In that configuration, it's almost the exact size as the iPad mini. It's only slightly heavier and thicker.

So, basically, the FlexPai is a miniature tablet that actually fits in your pocket. It will allow users to save money and weight, because they won't need as many devices, Liu said.

You'll need "less and less devices to get the same user experience," he said.

Royole is already mass producing the device and taking preorders for it. It plans to start shipping it at the end of December.

The gadget is pricey and clunky

But you may want to wait before you buy one.

For one thing, the device is expensive. It starts at $1,318 for a version with 128 gigabytes of storage. If you want the 256-gigabyte version, it will set you back $1,469. That's more than the priciest iPhone XS Max — and that model comes with 512 gigabytes of storage.

For another, Royole doesn't yet have any U.S. carrier partners and isn't really selling the FlexPai to consumers here. Right now, it's targeting consumers in China instead.

Royole's FlexPai smartphone, unfoldedBut the gadget has more fundamental problems. It feels like a first-generation device. Although it's small and thin for a tablet, it feels big and clunky when folded in half. That's because it doesn't fold down flat. Instead it has a relatively thick bulge at its hinge. That could be annoying if you're trying to carry it around in your pocket.

Right before Apple introduced that iPad, I met with a small Silicon Valley company that showed off one of the first modern touchscreen tablets. I had been skeptical about tablets before then, but after seeing device — even in its rough shape — it was immediately clear why someone would want a gadget like it.

I was hoping to have the same experience with the FlexPai. I've been excited about the coming era of flexible screen devices since the first time I saw a demo of such a display around a decade or so ago. The idea of having a large screen device that you can fit in your pocket or roll up into a pen-like tube is really appealing in theory.

It feels like a gimmick

But right now, this flexible screen device feels more like a gimmick than a vision of the future.

I didn't really get to test the device, so I can't say how it performs or what it's like to use on a daily basis. But I'm dubious that in practice its flexible screen feature is really that compelling. Other companies have tried dual-screen phones, and they've never really caught on with consumers. I'm skeptical that people are going to like the trade off of having a thicker gadget in their pocket.

Sure, its larger screen can offer a better movie-watching experience. But the display still isn't big enough for the device to replace a laptop or a full-sized tablet. You're not going to want to edit documents or do other work on that sized screen.

Solving the problem of fragile screens is an important advance. But not at a $1,300 price point.

It was cool to see the FlexPai in person. I'm just hoping that future foldable devices do a better job of living up to the hype.

          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.

A daring sting operation. The great untold national security story of our time: “An impressive and important work…The book has the glamour of a spy novel and the gravity of a meticulously researched exposé” (Christian Science Monitor). On today’s high-tech battlefields, the most lethal weapons are not the big ones, but rather the ones that are small enough to be smuggled inside a pack of chewing gum. Developed and manufactured in the United States at extraordinary cost, these tiny weapons of war—which can guide missiles, see through walls, and trigger anything from a wireless IED to a nuclear weapon—are what currently give the US its military advantage. Unfortunately, they are increasingly being discovered in the hands of our enemies. In Operation Shakespeare, Pulitzer Prize finalist John Shiffman tells the true story of an elaborate sting operation launched by an elite Homeland Security team that was created to stop Iran, Russia, China, and North Korea from stealing US military technology. The sting, codenamed Operation Shakespeare, targets an Iranian arms broker who works on behalf of Tehran. Over the course of three years, the American agents go undercover to outwit not only the Iranian, but US defense contractors and bankers willing to put profit over national security. The chase moves around the world, and as the United States tries to bring the Iranian to justice, his own government plots to assassinate him, fearful of what he might reveal. Tenacious, richly detailed, and boasting unprecedented access to both the Iranian broker and the US agents who caught him, “Operation Shakespeare reads like a spy thriller—but Shiffman’s meticulous reporting leaves no doubt that he is telling nothing less than scary truth” (Daily News, New York)

Near the start of the nineteenth century, as the newly established United States looked outward toward the wider world, a group of eminent Protestant ministers formed a grand scheme for gathering the rest of mankind into the redemptive fold of Christianity and “civilization.” Its core element was a special school for “heathen youth” drawn from all parts of the earth, including the Pacific Islands, China, India, and, increasingly, the native nations of North America. If all went well, graduates would return to join similar projects in their respective homelands. For some years, the school prospered, indeed became quite famous. However, when two Cherokee students courted and married local women, public resolve—and fundamental ideals—were put to a severe test. In The Heathen School, John Demos marshals his deep empathy and feel for the textures of history to tell a moving story of families and communities—and to probe the very roots of American identity.

          Опубликовано видео опасного сближения китайского и американского кораблей      Cache   Translate Page      
Китайское издание South China Moring Post опубликовало видео, на котором запечатлено, как военные корабли США и Китая прошли в опасной близости друг от друга в Южно-Китайском море.

Из материалов следует, что 30 сентября китайский эскадренный миноносец типа 052C подошел на расстояние меньше 40 метров к принадлежащему США эсминцу USS Decatur. Издание обратило внимание, что моряки корабля китайского ВМС были в это время вооружены, пишет РИА «Новости».

Посчитав курс американского судна «опасным», китайский экипаж предупредил военных США о последствиях при текущем сохранении курса. На это с USS Decatur пришел ответ о преследовании американской стороной мирных целей при нахождении в водах Южно-Китайского моря. Представитель Тихоокеанского флота ВМС США Нейт Кристенсен заявил, что считает действия Китая «опасными и непрофессиональными».

В то же время в минобороны Китая указали на категорический отказ воспринимать действия других стран, которые могут угрожать китайским безопасности и территориальному суверенитету. В ведомстве отметили, что при этом Пекин уважает принципы свободной навигации в водах Южно-Китайского моря.

Ранее ракетный эсминец ВМС США «Декатур» прошел в Южно-Китайском море поблизости от созданных Китаем искусственных островов. В этот момент к американскому кораблю приблизился китайский эсминец «Ланьчжоу». Комментируя снимки с места инцидента, в США заявили о нахождении кораблей в нескольких секундах от столкновения.

Напомним, что Парасельские острова (по-китайски Сиша), острова Спратли (Наньша) и риф Скарборо являются спорной территорией для Китая, Тайвани, Вьетнама, Филиппин, Малайзии и Брунея. При этом КНР считает их своей исторической родиной. Во время встречи с министром обороны США Джеймсом Мэттисом председатель Китая Си Цзиньпин заявил, что не отдаст «ни пяди земли своих предков».


          Россия и Китай договорились о совместных проектах в атомной энергетике      Cache   Translate Page      
Россия и Китай подписали четыре исполнительных контракта по проектам сооружения новых блоков Тяньваньской АЭС и демонстрационного ядерного реактора на быстрых нейтронах CFR600.

Контракты заключены на полях выставки China International Import Expo в Шанхае, передает РИА «Новости».

Предприятия корпорации CNNC подписали с АО «Инжиниринговая компания «АСЭ» контракт на технический проект на блоки №7 и №8 Тяньваньской АЭС. С АО «ОКБМ «Африкантов» – исполнительные контракты по проекту CFR600 на поставку оборудования и оказание услуг, предоставление лицензии на право использования программных средств, а также на услуги по экспертизе документации.

Кроме того, Россия и Китай завершили переговоры по созданию тяжелого вертолета, стороны готовы подписать контракт, передает ТАСС со ссылкой на директора по международному сотрудничеству и региональной политике Ростеха Виктора Кладова.

Он также отметил, что Ростех не исключает возможность реализации совместных проектов с Китаем по сухопутной бронетехнике. У разработчиков двух стран, по его словам, «периодически возникают идеи на китайскую платформу поставить российское вооружение, допустим, ПТРК или противосамолетную ракету».

Он добавил, что такие идеи уже обсуждались, и пока проектов нет.

Ранее во вторник Кладов сообщал, что Россия и Китай согласовали новые поставки оружия.

Россия и Китай согласовали новые поставки оружия, сообщил руководитель делегации «Ростеха» (входит в «Рособоронэкспорт») на выставке в Чжухае Виктор Кладов.

«Мы ведем активное сотрудничество с КНР во всех средах военно-технического сотрудничества – земля, воздух и вода. Помимо успешной реализации двух контрактов по С-400 и Су-35 у нас есть масса других проектов. Я бы не хотел углубляться в детали, но скажу, что мы буквально недавно подписали еще три (оружейных) контракта с китайской стороной», – уточнил он, передает РИА «Новости».

По его словам, санкции Вашингтона по-спортивному разозлили Китай. «Нельзя с такой большой, великой страной, с крупным игроком на мировой арене разговаривать языком давления, угроз, ультиматумов», – сказал Кладов.

По его словам, в Пекине считают, что ответом на санкции должно стать еще более тесное, более глубокое сотрудничество с Россией. «Мы должны с Россией быть плечом к плечу, спина к спине, как они сказали. Знаете, как в голливудском боевике, спина к спине. И ответом на эти вызовы должно быть военно-техническое сотрудничество и в сфере совместных разработок, и в сфере поставок, и в сфере создания и налаживания производства новых образцов», – сказал Кладов.

Он также отметил, что «Рособоронэкспорт» выполнит план по продаже оружия за рубеж на сумму не менее 13,4 млрд долларов.

Авиакосмический салон Airshow China 2018 проходит в Чжухае с 6 по 11 ноября.

Тем временем глава Объединенного комитета начальников штабов Вооруженных сил США генерал Джозеф Данфорд заявил, что Россия якобы не будет представлять такую же угрозу для США, как Китай, в 2025–2035 годах, поскольку не сможет поддерживать на текущем уровне свой потенциал.

          庆祝 Fedora 15 岁!      Cache   Translate Page      


2003年11月6日,Red Hat 宣布推出 Fedora Core 1,这是 Fedora Project 的首个软件,而这份公告亦标志着一个在 Red Hat 和社区之间协作开发的项目的诞生。


历史

Fedora Project 源于一个名为 fedora.us 的社区主导项目。

Fedora 是一个社区项目,旨在简化 Red Hat 平台上第三方软件的发布和交付。

Fedora.us 推出几个月后,便在其主页发布了重大声明,宣布 Red Hat Linux 正在与 Fedora Linux 合并,而 Fedora Project 亦由此诞生。

当免费的 Red Hat Linux 停止发行后,Fedora 社区便集成到 Red Hat 赞助的 Fedora Project,目标是开发出由社区支持的操作系统。事实上,Fedora Project 除了由志愿者组织外,也有许多 Red Hat 的员工参与开发。Red Hat Enterprise Linux 则取代 Red Hat Linux 成为官方支持的系统版本。

可以理解为 Red Hat Linux 变成了 Fedora Core,而 Fedora.us (or Fedora Linux) 则成了 Fedora Extras。

在 Fedora 7 之前,有 Core 和 Extras 这两个主要的仓库。Fedora Core 仓库包含所有操作系统必需的基本软件包,以及其他随安装 CD/DVD 发行的、由 Red Hat 开发者维护的软件包。Fedora Extras 仓库自 Fedora Core 3 开始加入,包含社区维护的、没有随安装 CD/DVD 发布的软件包。自 Fedora 7 开始,Core 和 Extras 软件仓库被合并,因此该版本在其名称中去掉了Core该软件仓库同样允许社区成员维护的软件包,这在以前是 Red Hat 开发者才可进行的。

Fedora Core 1

15年前的 Linux 软件生态系统看起来与今天非常不同。Fedora Core 1 引入了一些现在听起来可能很熟悉的新软件包:

  • bitstream-vera-fonts

  • dbus

  • epiphany

  • nano

  • rhythmbox

  • yum

从一开始,Fedora 就积极拥抱创新,即使在 2003 年,Fedora Project 也在推进新项目。下面是 Fedora Core 1 发布说明的一部分

  • “CUPS is now the only print spooler provided. During upgrades, if LPRng is installed, it will be replaced by CUPS.”

  • “Fedora Core 1 includes the Native POSIX Thread Library (NPTL), a new implementation of POSIX threads for Linux. This library provides performance improvements and increased scalability.”

  • “Fedora Core 1 now uses a graphical interface while booting.”

默认桌面环境


2003年,Fedora 的默认桌面环境是 GNOME。而 Mozilla Suite 是当时的首选网络浏览器。因为 Mozilla 尚未启动 Firefox 独立浏览器项目,该套件包括一个电子邮件客户端和 usenet 新闻阅读器,虽然 Mozilla 包含了一个电子邮件客户端,但 Fedora 默认使用 Ximian Evolution 作为其电子邮件程序。

还包括以下这些应用

  • OpenOffice.org (formerly StarOffice, and not yet LibreOffice)

  • gAIM (Pidgin would rise in popularity as alternatives to AIM came about, such as Yahoo! Messenger and MSN Messenger)

  • X-Chat

          Chrome 71 将屏蔽提供“滥用体验”网站的所有广告      Cache   Translate Page      

谷歌宣布,它将从今年12月份开始在 Chrome 71 浏览器上屏蔽持续提供滥用体验(abusive experiences)的网站上的所有广告。

早在去年 Chrome 就已经对恶意误导广告宣战。此前 Chrome 已经开始针对弹出式窗口等影响使用体验的广告,祭出了封锁的规范。现在,对于充斥着会误导你关闭窗口却导向其他网页(打开更多窗口…),想看视频就下载文件或导向别的链接,这类会误导使用者且被归类为滥用广告的内容,则将会在 Chrome 71 上进一步受到全面封阻。

总的来说,如果广告特别具有误导性、破坏性或干扰性,则可能会被视为“滥用体验”的广告。这些误导性内容很大一部分都是被骗子拿来诈骗和进行网络钓鱼活动,它们会从用户的广告点击中窃取个人信息。


谷歌产品经理 Vivek Sekhar 表示,在 Chrome 删除广告之前,网站持有者将有 30 天的处理窗口期。

在其他会被 Chrome 屏蔽的内容中,谷歌还列出了虚假信息、意外点击区域、钓鱼网页、自动重定向、假鼠标指针、点击后出现广告或登录页面的页面元素以及到不希望出现的软件广告或页面元素等。



而那些并不想使用谷歌这个全新滥用广告体验保护功能的用户,可以很容易地在 Chrome 设置中禁用掉这个过滤功能。


对于大多数用户而言,他们当然很乐意看到这些广告的减少。但谷歌的这一系列行动是否会让广告主们感到担忧呢?

Notepad++ 是一款深受开发者喜爱的文本编辑器,但令人遗憾的是这款应用并未在 Microsoft Store 上架。现在第三方开发人员将其引入到了微软商城中。虽然第三方版本具备了大部分内容,但受限于 Store 的限制以及微软的相关策略,部分功能并未上线。


在应用的官方描述中写道:“这是开源 Notepad++ (https://notepad-plus-plus.org/) 的非官方开源分支,以便于用户可以在 Microsoft Store 上下载 Notepad++。该软件保留了原版 Notepad++ 的所有功能,但由于微软商城的策略限制,部分功能不能正常使用(例如部分文件关联,以及运行选项等)。软件的所有权益均属于原 Notepad++ 团队,感谢他们为我们带来了这么棒的一款应用。”

另外,这个非官方的 Notepad++ 基于 Notepad++ 7.5.9 版本。源码已托管在 GitHub 上。

          Firefox 硬件报告显示 Firefox 用户主要使用 Win 10      Cache   Translate Page      

早在 2016 年,Mozilla 就推出了硬件报告。在报告中,这个非营利性组织详细说明了 Firefox 客户端使用的硬件类型。Firefox 硬件报告是透明且公开的,任何人都可以访问它。

最近,Mozilla 从 Firefox 桌面浏览器的遥测系统收集的非敏感数据显示,Windows 10 现在是大多数 Mozilla Firefox 用户的首选操作系统。在2018年10月的硬件报告中,Mozilla 指出,Windows 7 和 Windows 10 是最受欢迎的操作系统,他们的用户占比近 80%。


从数据看,Windows 10 在 10 月下旬成功超越 Windows 7,成为 Mozilla 浏览器用户桌面操作系统的第一选择。目前,Windows 10 在 Firefox 用户群中的份额高达 40.696%,紧随其后的是 Windows 7,份额达 40.401%。 Windows 8.1 排名第三,远远落后于前两者,仅为 7.285%。


被“抛弃”的 Edge

首先,这些数字表明 Windows 10 在全球范围内的采用率确实在增长,并且图表显示其正在试图超越 Windows 7。毕竟 Windows 7 预计将在2020年1月终止支持,而微软需要在同一时间内尽可能多地在 PC 上安装 Windows 10。

但另一方面,数据亦从侧面反映了许多用户根本不在乎 Microsoft Edge。因为有超过 40% 的 Firefox 用户已决定放弃使用微软的原生浏览器而切换到第三方。

微软一直坚持让用户使用 Edge 浏览器,但从最近发布的所有统计数据来看 —— 没有任何效果。 事实上,微软 Edge 目前的市场份额约为 4%,而谷歌 Chrome 仍然是全球领先的浏览器,在超过全球 65% 的台式机上运行。

          В Ростехе оценили объем экспорта оружия в условиях санкций      Cache   Translate Page      
В 2018 году Рособоронэкспорт продаст оружия за рубеж на сумму не менее 13,4 млрд долларов, сообщил представитель Ростех Виктор Кладов.

«Несмотря на жесткую конкуренцию на внешнем рынке, несмотря на введенные против России санкции, план продажи экспорта оружия в 2018 году будет не ниже прошлогоднего, то есть не менее 13,4 млрд долларов», – цитирует Кладова РИА «Новости».

Кладов возглавляет делегацию Ростеха на авиакосмическом салоне Airshow China-2018, который проходит в Чжухае с 6 по 11 ноября.

Он рассказал, что Россия заключила с Китаем три контракта на поставку оружия, но деталей не раскрыл.

«Мы ведем активное сотрудничество с КНР во всех средах военно-технического сотрудничества – земля, воздух и вода. Помимо успешной реализации двух контрактов по С-400 и Су-35 у нас есть масса других проектов», – сказал он.

На прошлой неделе гендиректор Рособоронэкспорта Александр Михеев сообщал, что в 2018 году организация подписала контракты на поставку вооружения на сумму около 19 млрд долларов, что на четверть больше, чем в прошлом году.

Министр обороны Сергей Шойгу ранее заявлял о росте продаж российского вооружения.


          Для России и Китая анонсирован новый дальнемагистральный самолет      Cache   Translate Page      
Объединенная авиастроительная корпорация (ОАК) с 2019 года начнет проработку контрактов с российскими компаниями на выпуск широкофюзеляжного дальнемагистрального самолета CR929, сообщил президент ОАК Юрий Слюсарь на авиасалоне China Airshow в Чжухае.

По его словам, стартовыми для самолета станут рынки России и Китая, передает ТАСС.

«Мы планируем уже со следующего года начинать подготовку контрактов с отечественными авиакомпаниями», – сообщил Слюсарь, уточнив, что «твердых контрактов пока не требуется».

Он выразил надежду, что проект создания широкофюзеляжного дальнемагистрального самолета CR929 должен окупиться в течение 15–20 лет после запуска авиалайнера в серию.

«Интерес к этому самолету большой и здесь, в Китае, и в целом на мировом рынке. Это машина, которая обещает быть лучше и экономичнее своих конкурентов, это вызывает неподдельный интерес», – сказал Слюсарь.

Напомним, в мае в Китайской корпорации коммерческой авиации назвали сроки первого полета CR929.
