          Comments: Яркие дайверские часы CX Swiss Military SEEWOLF I SCUBA NERO      Cache   Translate Page      
Смешно почитать горящие пуканы :))) Сначала зашел, думал автор дайвер, и взял себе по предназначению, и распишет как оно под водой. Потом ждал, что в комментах объявится какой-нибудь дайвер, и разъяснит, что к чему :))
В итоге в очередной раз стыдно за комментаторов, смешно и стыдно.
Попробую сам, из того что знаю. Для начала, часы ДАЙВЕРСКИЕ! Для чего же? Дайте подумать… Наверное для Дайвинга?
Что такое дайвинг? Это охрененно дорогое развлечение, хорошо поставленное как маркетологами так и производителями качественного оборудования. Не думаю, что на глубине 20-30 метров, вы бы хотели, чтобы у вас закончился кислород и вы оказались в непонятном месте, и не знаете сколько проплыли в одну сторону по времени. Время вам нужно, чтобы рассчитывать свой маршрут. И да, для тех кто скажет — «пфф, да чем там эти 20 метров, всплыву и буду грести до берега». Всплывёте… и умрете. Больно и мучительно от вскипевшей крови в организме при ДКБ (декомпрессионной болезни).
Ребята, если вы хотите жить, то для дайвинга давление в баллоне и время самые важные показатели.
Другое дело, что люди пользуются дайверскими компьютерами, но дублирование информации в дайвинге — это еще один ключ для выживания в нештатных ситуациях. И всё это оборудование должно работать всегда, вот и цены такие. Вот и вид у них такой.

          'Women Are Just Deserting the Republican Party': CNN Analyst Argues Trump Just Realized He's Gone Too Far      Cache   Translate Page      
Trump is making his final election pitch with women surrogates. Gloria Borger thinks that's not an accident.

On Monday, in one of his final campaign stops before the polls open on Election Day, President Donald Trump brought two White House officials to help him stump for Senate candidate Mike Braun at a rally in Fort Wayne, Indiana: White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway.

The presence of two of the Trump administration's most prominent, forward-facing women, and Trump's simultaneous comments to local reporters about his "tone" were not lost on CNN political analyst Gloria Borger, who discussed the rally with Anderson Cooper and hit on a key point: that he may understand the most recent House polls show the Republican Party getting crushed among women, in the largest political gender gap in modern times.

"What do you make of President Trump bringing out Kellyanne Conway, bringing out Sarah Huckabee Sanders?" said Cooper. "Also saying, talking about tone, which is something he talked about a lot during the campaign, saying that when he became president he would change his tone ... maybe this was like a one-off in some local affiliate interview, but it's interesting that he's talking about, oh, it's kind of my regret."

"Gee, do you think it could be about women?" said Borger. "I mean, I'm just sort of thinking here that, he brings out all these women onstage, talks about his daughter, talks about his tone. Could it be about that women favor Democrats by about two to one now, and he understands that this is going to be a problem for him, particularly in the House?"

"And you know that he's usually not really reflective about these kind of things, so I thought it was actually quite surprising that he said that," she continued. "But the fact that he is saying it leads me to believe that he really understands that women are just, you know, deserting the Republican Party in droves."

"It doesn't mean he's going to change his tone," said Cooper.

"No," agreed Borger. "No, but I think he wanted to sound like he was."

Hay diputadosy diputadas en mi terruño que su grado letrado es saber preparar la tierra, sembrar semillas y recoger cosechas, otros es saber usar calculadoras para manejar tiendas de venta al mayoreo o para ejercer la usura tiburonera…, otros son doctos en cabalgar caballos y machos…. Y los que tienen "título" académico algunos lo consiguieron de las universidades chafas que en los 80s (decía en broma mi tata), tenían puestos en varios mercados vendiendo títulos de abogansters.

La elección de los jueces de la Suprema Corte no tiene nada que ver con calificaciones o evaluaciones de ONGs o entidades colegiadas, algunas corruptas y algunas responsables, la mayoría mangoneadas por colegiados chafas …, o académicos abiertamente inclinados por tal o cual corrupto candidato.

Son 84 los "padres y madres de la patria", mayoría corruptos diputad@s que tienen la "constitucional" obligación de elegir a los próximos cuatro corruptos chuchos finqueros para que hagan jurisprudencia ilícita o inventadas al negrero íberosajón y seguir saqueando las arcas de la hacienda pública si gana las elecciones…., o gobernarles otra vez la finca a los oligarcas tipo proxy en el "desastroso" caso que el turco Nayib  Bukele compita y gane las elecciones.

Tamos jodidos por donde sea.

Los nombramientos o elecciones de segundo grado de jueces y fiscales, etc., siempre ha sido de cuotas. La derecha siempre los ha elegido porque los partidos de derecha siempre han sido y siguen siendo mayoría y han corrompido todo el sistema socio-político-económico en mi terruño para proteger intereses del "gran capital" o "el poder de facto"..., que yo le llamo lo que es: oligarquía criollo-extranjera.

Daydreaming digo qué vergón sería que Nayib tuviera
tres huevos, o que fuera XYY, y ya con el hueso emprendiera lo que trató de hacer el huevudo catracho en 2009: Llamar a plebiscitoy preguntarle al pueblo a través del voto si está de acuerdo en mandar a la mierda la Constitución que Dabuison impusoen 1983 y nombrar una asamblea constituyentepara redactar nueva Constitución.

Pero cuidado Nayib con permitir a corrompidos grupos colegiados como el CNJ, FUSADES y otros que vengan a pervertir el proceso… Tampoco permitir al virreinato meter la cuchara con ideólogos rapaces, aunque amenacen con cortar ayuda o con la paja del gusano rubio marquito de parar o poner más impuestos a las remesas… es pura paja porque en USA no trabaja así de chiche ese volado, bloqueo económico a El Salvador hoy día no es como Cuba o Irán. Es un proceso político y judicial.

Escribir una nueva Constitución quizás sería más sano y prudente pedir ayuda a la ONU o la Unión Europea. Pero NO a la OEApara que nos manden al enano Uribe u otro fascista o ultra izquierdista.

Si Nayib da el paso el virreinato esta vez sí va a pensar bien las consecuencias de darle vueltegato a Nayib como sucedió con el golpe a Zelaya en 2009, precisamente porque saben hoy los resultados de esa cagada de Obamay la aún recién gran cagada de Narcisocon el fraudulento Hernández…

¿O por qué creen que el bully Narciso no le da vueltegato a Ortega y Maduro y escasamente los menciona?

Los racistas de Narciso no quieren más caravanas.

Nayib puede modernizar nuestro país…, si no resulta chafa ya con el hueso. No sería raro se vuelva chafa, pero con él sería una herida política grave para mi gente, especialmente con nuestros milenios porque ya no tendrían en quien creer.

Con una nueva Constitución se puede mandar a la mierda lo que hoy está entrampando la elección de los 4 chuchos finqueros y lo mismo será con la elección del nuevo fiscalito tipo "pollo crudo", que de paso dice quiquito en su pasquín que obtuvo su títulode una de esas chafas universidades que fueron señaladas en 2001 de haber tenido un enorme puesto en La Tiendona vendiendo títulos de abogansters por mayoreo…

Hasta un "fiscal especial" tipo Muller se nombró por el escándalo, lástima que este también era de los corruptos de FUSADES y las malas lenguasdicen encubrió algunas universidades chafas que pagaron cuotas a cierto partido político…, ¡Aún el mismo "pollo crudo" fue su asistente!… una muestra más del Verbo Corrupto...

El Alma Materdel actual showman fiscalito, que acaba de anunciar subliminalmente acepta el apoyo de Arena y va a reelección, no se escapó porque la "Universidad de Las Américas" ya no existe.

Pobechitoel perro policía porque  se quedó sin Alma Mater... ¡Ah! pero tiene entre sus classmates nada menos que a míster finiquito exprés Rafael Hernán Contreras del PCN.

Nayib, por favor, 14-24 diputados sería suficiente para mi terruño en la nueva Carta Magna.

Ojalá Nayib también se deshaga del ejército… ¿Para qué necesitamos un ejército que consume $141 millones del presupuesto año tras año?

Hay que andar endeudándosepara que alcancen los centavitos teniendo ese revergo de millones invertidos en un ejército. Hay que merger los soldados con la PNC y hacer un sencillo cuerpo civil policial.

Actualmente eso es lo que hacen hoy: labor policial anyway.

Los ejércitos solo sirven para que los corrompanoligarcas o virreyes (como el que viene pronto). Todos los ejércitos de Centroamérica debían desaparecer… esa fue la clave del actual éxito de Costa Rica cuando disolvió su ejército en 1949.

Pero lo crucial e importante, si no se puede echar al basurero esa amañada Constitución escrita por asesinos, es quitarles a los políticos la elección de los jueces de la Corte Suprema y del Fiscal General.

En el estado de Michigan tendrán un plebiscito a votarse hoy precisamente en la que se pregunta a los electores del estado si quitarle a la legislatura y al gobernador la potestad de hacer amañados mapas de los distritos (municipios) de donde salen los diputados y nombrar y conformar una comisión independiente de 13 ciudadanos ordinariosde 4 republicanos, 4 demócratas y 5 independientes escogidos al azar en una aplicación abierta a todo michoagense.

Copiemos estas ondas positivas del imperio.

¡O las cuotas nunca desaparecen!

En este artículo de elfaro.net, -donde hace un gigantesco esfuerzo por encubrir su favoritismo partidista-, el articulerole pregunta a un diputado del clan Salgado, miembro del partido derechista prostituto de GANA:


Al decir "baremos" se refiere al sistema de méritos que usan agrupaciones ONG y organizaciones corruptas como el Consejo Nacional de La Judicatura –CNJ- donde una de sus miembros, María Marenco de Torrento, sigue de miembro pero también es candidata apoyada por nada menos que la troika de la corrupción: Arena, PDC y PCN… Esto es corrupción aquí y en Júpiter.

El articulero la hace de pendejo, o deshonesto, al tratar de cercar al diputado corrupto de GANA usando parámetros torcidos.

Como dicen nuestros hermanos mayores al norte, "todos estos bueyes son una bola de pendejos corruptos".

El flamante Presidente de la Asamblea Legislativa, que gana 6 mil vergas mensuales en un paisito donde el salario mínimo es alrededor de 250 al mes, rindió su informe de seis meses donde anunció, sacando pecho, de la reducción en gastoscomo los famosos viajes de los diputados… pero dijo que el presupuesto de la Asamblea de ¡$58 millones de dólares!... ¡No va cambiar!..., será la misma multimillonada o un poquitito más, o sea, entre líneas, el finquero quiso decir que la hueviadera seguirá en diferente forma.

Un alcalde mexicano lo dijo humilde a los mexicanos 
"…sí, he robado, pero poquito".

Turbay Ayala,con caché, dijo lo mismo a los colombianos "La corrupción debería de bajar a sus justas proporciones"

Al menos el travesti ideológico diputado de GANA, con salario anual de 60-65 mil vergas al año,más otros trinquetes, es "honrado" y no esconde la realidad cuando abiertamente le dijo a elfaro.net:

"−Todos [todas] las propuestas de nombres son de los partidos. Son cuotas. A nadie le gusta decirlo pero esa es la verdad…"

Y así ha sido en mi terruño desde el año de la cuca...

          TK Maxx sparks never-ending stocking hunt in quirky Christmas campaign      Cache   Translate Page      

TK Maxx is looking to show that presents aren’t just for Christmas by offering a year full of gifts to customers who find a bespoke 'never-ending stocking' in one of its stoes. 

The Never-ending Stocking' festive promotion has been brought to real with a real world activitation and a film narrated by Love Actually favourite, Bill Nighy.

The magical spot from Wieden+Kennedy is shot TK Maxx's typical overstated and cinematic style.

It opens with a lucky Christmas shopper locating the fabled never-ending stocking, nestled among the retailer's cushion shelf.

The fortunate winner then drags the lengthy sock home through a snowy street, as Nighy’s compelling narration informs us: 'Now she’s got the one thing better than Christmas presents… Christmas presents for a whole year.'

As the woman bursts through her front door, the stocking comes to life, burping presents left, right and centre, to the unseasonal rumba tune, Cuban Pete.

The spot sees the stocking move throughout the year like a friendly festive basilisk, dispersing gifts to family and friends until 12 months later, when midnight strikes on Christmas Eve, it disappears up the living room chimney much to the family’s dismay.  

The campaign is TK Maxx’s third Christmas push under the 'Ridiculous Possibilities' brand platform. It will run in the UK, Ireland, Germany, Poland, Austria, and the Netherlands, combining TV with print, digital, social, mobile, PR and experiential. 

A limited number of bespoke never-ending stockings will be hidden on the shelves of TK Maxx stores across Europe and online from 7 November, and the lucky shoppers who find one will experience a year of gifting from the store.

Deborah Dolce, group brand and marketing director at TK Maxx said: “We have worked together with all our agencies to create a campaign that is beyond a straight broadcast message, rather it aims to engage with our shoppers in an experiential and engaging way.

“It brings to life TK Maxx’s brand message of ‘Big Gifts. Small Prices’ through the main Christmas TV ad, as well as creating standout in this busy season. We are encouraging our customers to visit stores and search for one of the neverending stockings, whilst also reminding them that TK Maxx is a perfect gift destination for both Christmas and beyond.”

Wieden+Kennedy London is responsible for the creative campaign, TVC production, and digital assets. Ogilvy is the PR and influence agency, Mindshare the media agency, and Undercurrent is managing experiential. The in-store and social creative will be delivered by TK Maxx’s in-house creative team.

          Absolut challenges artists to create next look for vodka brand      Cache   Translate Page      

Over the last four decades Absolut has worked with more than 550 of the world’s top artists, including Keith Haring, Arman Armand, Romero Britto and Maurizio Cattelan, resulting in over 800 art pieces. Now, the vodka brand is looking for its newest creative voice with a global competition.

Absolut is launching its biggest collaboration effort in its history, encouraging creatives from all over the world to create expressions that bring to life what one of the drink's brand beliefs mean to them. The beliefs are centered on creating a more open, equal and inclusive world and make up the creative platform, ‘Create a Better Tomorrow, Tonight’.

The international Absolut Creative Competition will reach 20 countries across the world with the mission to find the next bold creative voice of the brand. The competition entries will be judged by a global jury of leading creative voices.

The competition aims to celebrate creativity and harness the power artists have to envision and create a better tomorrow. Artworks can be submitted through the brand’s dedicated webpage through 31 January 2019. The site also features the posters of the past, with descriptions of each artist and poster.

To promote the competition, Absolut worked with director Oscar Hudson and creative agency BBH on two films that capture the spirit of the competition. In them, artists walk through a cityscape that represents the generations of artistic posters created by noted artists. It ends with the question: “Are you next?”  

The competition winner will have his or her work amplified on Absolut’s social media and digital channels and will also then have the work displayed on an iconic out-of-home site such as Piccadilly Circus or Times Square.

In addition, he or she will receive a €20,000 cash prize and be invited to the global announcement event in May 2019.

Aaron Cezar is the first jury member to be named. He is the founding director of the London-based Delfina Institute, where over the last 10 years he has positioned the Delfina Foundation as a meeting point and incubator of creative talent, forming partnerships with leading institutions internationally.

Cezar stated in a release: “I am excited to be part of the Absolut Creative Competition and I am inspired by its objectives to create a more open world through creativity. I have long observed how the arts, alongside other disciplines and creative thinking as a whole, can be a way of understanding some of the problems of the world and envisioning our potential to address them.”

Sina Neubrandt, senior global marketing manager at Absolut, added: “Creativity can spark conversation and drive change. This is why Absolut’s latest campaign celebrates the power that creativity has for making a real difference in the world. We’re excited to see the entries and celebrate the winner in May.”

          Bañados y peinados, migrantes centroamericanos turistean en la capital      Cache   Translate Page      

CIUDAD DE MÉXICO (Notimex) 06 de noviembre de 2018.- Bañados, cambiados, bien peinados y con algunos pesos en los bolsillos, migrantes centroamericanos, sobre todo jóvenes, salieron del albergue instalado en el estadio Jesús Martínez “Palillo” a turistear por la Ciudad de México. En grupos de tres, cuatro y hasta cinco personas, ingresaron a la estación del Metro Ciudad Deportiva, que corre de Pantitlán a Tacubaya, y que se encuentra a unos pasos de la puerta seis del campo deportivo. Sonrientes y en espera de que alguien los orientara sobre los transbordos que tendrían que hacer para llegar, en varios casos, al Zócalo capitalino, y en otros al Ángel de la Independencia, los hondureños y salvadoreños caminaron por el andén con dirección a la estación Chabacano, algunos a sugerencia del personal del Metro, tuvieron que esperar un vagón vacío. Brayan, Carlos, Jeisser, de 16, 25 y 19 años, llegaron anoche y con la sonrisa a flor de piel quieren conocer los puntos emblemáticos de la Ciudad de México: “Nos han hablado qué hay lugares lindos y no queremos perder la oportunidad de conocerlos“. Ellos provienen de familias sumidas en la pobreza, dos son de origen hondureño y uno salvadoreño. El 12 de octubre, junto muchos otros, cruzaron la frontera México-Guatemala para alcanzar el sueño americano. “Hay muchas ‘maras’ y pandilleros, a uno lo amenazan si no se mete a las bandas, mejor fue tomar la decisión de venir en la caravana, sino nos metemos con los ‘maras’ nos matan“, asegura Carlos. Brayan cambió su expectativa una vez que se le ha dicho en el albergue que en México hay empleo y hasta una vivienda puedes obtener. “Quizá me quede en este país sino me dejan pasar a Estados Unidos. México se mira formal, allá en mi país sacaba arena, piedra de río y no me alcanzaba el dinero para la canasta básica”, relata. No hay trabajo, agregan los otros, por eso “nos aventamos a venir para acá”, aseguran los migrantes centroamericanos que han alcanzado la capital del país. Con sus sueños y los pesos que lograron juntar con la gente que pasaba antes de ingresar al Metro, los tres abordaron, como otros más que iban subiendo las escaleras eléctricas, el vagón que los conduciría al corazón de la Ciudad de México.

Stability of dietary polyphenols: It's never too late to mend?

Food Chem Toxicol. 2018 Sep;119:3-5

Authors: Xiao J

Abstract
We have comprehensively investigated the structure-stability relationship of natural polyphenols in DMEM medium without cells. Polyphenols with catechol or pyrogallol structure were evidently instable in DMEM medium without cells. Herein, we further investigate stability of polyphenols when incubated with cancer cells and its related mechanism. After incubated with SK-28 cells and A549 cells at 37 °C in 5% CO2 for 72 h, the new products of quercetin and 5,7,3',4'-tetrahydroxyflavone were found to quite different from different cells. It is time to investigate what really happened for polyphenols and the new products of polyphenols in cancer cells, as well as the related mechanism. It is very important to further check the bioactivity of these new products, which will avoid erroneous conclusions for what's the really bioactive compounds.

          Шедевры А. Хичкока. Топаз      Cache   Translate Page      

Alfred Hitchcock hadn't made a spy thriller since the 1930s, so his 1969 adaptation of Leon Uris's bestseller seemed like a curious choice for the director. But Hitchcock makes Uris's story of the West's investigation into the Soviet Union's dealings with Cuba his own. Frederick Stafford plays a French intelligence agent who works with his American counterpart (John Forsythe) to break up a Soviet spy ring. The film is a bit flat dramatically and visually, and there are sequences that seem to occupy Hitchcock's attention more than others. A minor work all around, with at least two alternative endings shot by Hitchcock.* * * * *Агент французской разведки (Стаффорд) вместе с агентом ЦРУ (Форсайт) пытаются разоблачить русских агентов, внедренных на Кубе. Они обнаруживают русское присутствие даже в верхних эшелонах власти ... французского правительства. Много интриг и шпионских хитросплетений.

Na segunda parada de sua primeira viagem internacional após assumir o comando de Cuba, em abril, o líder da ditadura do país, Miguel Díaz-Canel, se reuniu nesta segunda-feira (5) com o ditador da Coreia do Norte, Kim Jong-un, em Pyongyang. Segundo a...

          Louis Farrakhan, Live from Tehran      Cache   Translate Page      

Monday November 5, one day before the election, marked the resumption of sanctions on the Islamic regime by the Trump administration. Nation of Islam boss Louis Farrakhan flew to Iran to speak out on behalf of the ruling mullahs.

As Fox News reported, Farrakhan told Mohsen Rezaei, Secretary of Iran’s Expediency Council: “Today, I warn the American government that sanctioning Iran is a big mistake.” The eager Farrakhan failed to flag any mistakes by the Iranian Islamic regime, the world’s biggest sponsor of terrorism. And Farrakhan took care to time his visit with an important event.

Thirty-nine years ago, in 1979, the Islamic regime of the Ayatollah Khomeini invaded the U.S. embassy in Tehran, took more than 50 American diplomats and civilians hostage, and held them for 444 days. Farrakhan marked the anniversary by telling law students at the University of Tehran, that “America has never been a democracy” and then led the students in a chants of “Death to America!” and “Death to Israel!”

No one in America had ever seen a performance quite like that. On the other hand, in his live Tehran show the Nation of Islam boss was not advancing any new themes.

On October 14, the 23rd anniversary of the Million Man March, Farrakhan addressed a cheering audience in Detroit: “To the members of the Jewish community that don’t like me — thank you very much for putting my name all over the planet…I’m not mad at you, ‘cuz you’re so stupid.” The Nation of Islam leader also claimed “I’m not an anti-Semite. I’m anti-Termite,” and repeated that message in a tweet.

Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz denounced the speech and called out presidents Obama and Clinton, along with former DNC boss Keith Ellison, for their ties to Farrakhan. Even so, prominent Democrats running for office were not swift to denounce Farrakhan for his Jews-are-termites speech. In fact, Farrakhan thrives on special treatment from high-profile Democrats.

“Louis Farrakhan has ingratiated himself with the liberal elite in the United States,” Howard Feldman noted after the “termites” speech. “Both Obama and the Clintons have been photographed alongside him. And whereas they publicly denounce his attitude towards Jews, the fact that they continue to be seen with him is that which empowers him.”

True to form, at the funeral of Aretha Franklin, who passed away in August, Farrakhan got a place of honor, right up front with Democrats Bill Clinton, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and Erica Holder. Many speakers exploited the occasion to bash President Trump, but none of the prominent Democrats took Farrakhan to task about anything. Viewers got the impression the Democrats liked being seen with him.

Back in 2005, a smiling Illinois Senator Barack Obama duly posed with Farrakhan for a photograph that only recently emerged. That was no surprise because the senator’s 1995 Dreams from My Father portrayed the Nation of Islam in a completely favorable light.

The author’s hatemongering Chicago pastor Jeremiah Wright, who prefers “God damn America” to “God bless America,” was a longtime pal of Farrakhan, and the Dreamsauthor participated in the Million Man March. In 2008, when the dreamer ran for president, Farrakhan called him the “messiah.” 

Once elected, POTUS 44 preferred to target conservatives rather than take Farrakhan or Wright to task. In similar style, for the most part, the establishment media have remained uncritical of the Nation of  Islam boss, even though his racist views were no secret.

As Stanley Crouch explained in the Village Voice in 1985, in the view of Louis Farrakhan, “the white man was a devil ‘grafted’ from black people in an evil genetic experiment by a mad, pumpkin-headed scientist named Yacub. That experiment took place 6000 years ago. Now the white man was doomed, sentenced to destruction by Allah.”  It follows that, regardless of self-image, anyone who believes that Dave Brubeck, Albert Einstein, Eleanor Roosevelt and the Wright Brothers are the devilish result of Yacub’s failed experiment is a racist.

In 2016, Hillary Clinton was quick to target Trump supporters as racists, sexists, homophobic, islamophobic, and so forth, a veritable “basket of deplorables.” When it comes to racism, the former First Lady and Secretary of State, who would still like to be president, pretty much gives Farrakhan a free pass.

For his part, the Nation of Islam mouthpiece knows he can call Jews termites, denounce America from Tehran, and most prominent Democrats will treat him gently. In reality, his “Death to America” chant differs from the Democrats only in degree, not in kind.

Now completely dominated by the left, Democrats despise the America that actually exists, with its culture, history, traditions and borders. Their dream is the future social justice America, with no borders. In the Democrats’ vision, only their party prevails, with help from an imported electorate.

"No Trump, no wall, no USA at all,” the refrain of leftist Democrats, is no great distance from “Death to America,” as chanted by Louis Farrakhan in Tehran. Democrats have effectively empowered this loathsome racist and anti-Semite. At election time or any time, non-Democrats, journalists and civil rights leaders would be wise call them on it.

전에도 글을 한 번 올린 적 있는데요~

현재 로직 + 서브로 프로툴 사용하고 있습니다.

 

같이 일하고픈 회사에서 큐베이스만 쓴다고 하셔서

큐베이스 트라이얼 받아서 좀 써보기 시작했어욥

 

그 회사랑 일하는 게 확정은 아니지만 

많은 스튜디오에서 큐베이스 기반으로 일하고 있는 것 같기도 해서

이 참에 메인 DAW를 바꿔야 하나 고민이 됩니다. ㅠㅠ

일로써 하는 작업을 위해서요~

 

그런데 메인 툴이 이원화 되면 

작업 속도 등등 문제가 생기고 일하는 데 지장이 있을까 해서 

큐베이스를 메인으로 가고 로직을 서브로 가야 하나? 싶은 생각도 들고요.

현재 개인 작업도 그렇고 모든 에셋과 장비가 로직 기준으로 구성되어있습니다. 

 

아직 큐베이스는 독학으로 익히는 단계라 저 혼자 판단이 잘 안되네요 ㅠㅠ

 

정리하자면,

 

1안. 로직 + 프로툴 체제를 유지하고, 큐베이스 엘레먼츠 구입 후 그 회사랑 일할때만 쓴다. 

큐베이스 단축키를 로직 단축키와 동일하게 변경한다.

 

2안. 큐베이스 프로 구입 후 본격 열심히 익혀서 메인으로 큐베이스를 쓴다.

로직 + 프로툴은 개인작업 할 때나 필요할 때만 쓴다.

이 경우 단축키는 큐베이스 최적화 버전으로 로직꺼를 변경한다.

 

이 둘 중에 고민입니다!!!

 

참고로 제 개인 장비는 맥북 프로 (메모리 16GB, CPU i5), 아폴로 트윈인데 

여기 큐베이스 깔아도 잘 돌아가겠죠..? 로직이나 프로툴과 충돌이 나거나 하지는 않을지도 고민이네요ㅠ 

예~~~~전에 학원 아이맥에서 프로툴 키면 큐베이스가 꺼지고 뭐 그런 충돌이 생겼던 기억도 있어서요.

로직과는 괜찮았는데...

          Yolanda, la abuela que tiene más de 94,000 suscriptores en YouTube con sus recetas de cocina       Cache   Translate Page      
Santo Domingo -. Yolanda Fermín vive de las ganancias que obtiene por los videos que sube a su cuenta de YouTube “Cocinando con Yolanda”

Rompiendo los parámetros establecidos, donde los más jóvenes dominan las plataformas digitales, Yolanda Fermín, de 62 años, fue motivada por su hijo Andrés para crear un canal de YouTube de gastronomía, y la acogida que ha tenido ha sido de tal magnitud, que cuenta con más de 94,000 suscriptores.

La idea inicial de Andrés Calcaño era que su madre hiciera recetas de comida para subirlas a su canal de YouTube y de esa manera su pareja aprendiera a cocinar como ella.

“Yo comencé de un momento a otro a incentivar a mami para crear la cuenta de YouTube gastronómica, para que mi pareja aprendiera a cocinar como mami. Lo que yo quería era que la comida quedara igual, pero nunca imaginé mi deseo se iba a cumplir y que iba a sobrepasar los límites”, expresa Calcaño.

Todo empezó en el 2016

Yolanda Fermín cuenta que una mañana de noviembre de 2016 estaba cocinando y su hijo Andrés la llamó y le preguntó: ¿Mami, quieres que hagamos un canal de YouTube usted cocinando?, “y como a mí siempre me gusta decir que sí, le dije que está bien”.

Al día siguiente compraron camarones y Yolanda cocinó un locrio de camarones con ensalada y coco, y ese video fue colgado en su canal de YouTube que tiene como nombre “Cocinado con Yolanda”.

“Ese primer video lo hicimos en Sabana de la Mar, donde yo vivo. Recuerdo que mi hijo duró tres días en mi casa y durante ese tiempo se hicieron tres videos”, expresa Fermín.

Antes de comenzar a grabar los videos gastronómicos, Yolanda se dedicaba a vender diferentes alimentos que preparaba en Sabana de la Mar y a cantar en el coro de su iglesia.

A partir de ese momento, el hijo de Yolanda iba semanal o quincenal a su casa, y le decía que cuando tuviera 3,000 suscriptores iba ganar dinero. Andrés le hablaba con mucho ánimo y siempre buscaba la forma de mantenerla motivada.

En el primer mes había un suscritor, y al transcurrir los meses iban subiendo, pero muy despacio.

Cuando pasó un año y pudieron lograr los 3,000 suscriptores, Yolanda se animó muchísimo cuando le dieron su primer pago. A partir de ese momento le hacían los pagos cada dos meses.

A medida que iba pasando el tiempo, las personas les fueron tomando interés a las recetas y fueron aumentando la cantidad de suscriptores, mientras la emoción de Yolanda iba incrementándose.

“Yo agarraba mi celular y comenzaba a revisar, incluso, me fui a un centro tecnológico y aprendí a usar la computadora para yo misma poder responder todos los comentarios y hasta aprender a subir los videos a YouTube“, expresa Yolanda.

Cuando llegó a los 10,000 suscriptores comenzaron a pagarle mensual y su canal de YouTube se fue convirtiendo poco a poco en una fuente de ingresos.

Fermín considera que “cayó en gracia”, porque todos los comentarios que sus suscriptores les dejan son buenos y sumamente lindos. Solo una persona le dejó un comentario desagradable, su mi hijo le contestó y yo le reprochó que no debió hacerlo.

A pesar de tener 62 años, Yolanda dice que “yo hago todo lo mío, porque tengo mi espíritu joven. Y no me gusta que me digan vieja, porque soy una adulta. Cada día estoy más feliz con este canal y espero seguir creciendo y aprendiendo cosas nuevas”.

El canal de YouTube de Yolanda tuvo su mayor acogida en noviembre de 2017, cuando la receta para preparar un “pica pollo” se hizo viral y los suscriptores subieron rápidamente.

Para Fermín ya es una costumbre hacer videos para YouTube, y cuando dura mucho sin hacerlos le hace falta.

“A mí también yo cocino porque hay muchas mujeres de países lejanos que están casadas con hombres dominicanos y no saben cocinarles y me piden diferentes platos”, destaca.

“Ellas me dicen que les gusta mucho mi canal y resaltan que todo lo que uso es natural y fácil de encontrar. Subiendo mis videos esas mujeres aprenden, le cocinan a sus esposos y me lo mandan a decir que gracias a los videos aprendieron muchas cosas”, dijo.

Sazón natural para carnes


Para preparar un sazón natural para las carnes, Yolanda utiliza ajíes grandes, ají morrón rojo, mucho ajo, cilantro, cilantrico, puerro, apio, ajíes gustosos, un poco de sal y después licua todo. Si tiene naranja agria y cebolla también le echa.

Para cada tipo de alimento, Yolanda prepara un sazón diferente.

Receta pescado con coco


Los ingredientes que utiliza Yolanda para preparar un pescado con coco son: dos libras de pescado dorado, un coco grande rallado, un ají cubanera grande, una cebolla pequeña, una rama de cilantro, un limón, bija y sal al gusto.

Para prepararlo, Yolanda explica que al pescado se le hacen pequeños cortes en la piel, se sazona con el sazón natural. Se pone un caldero al fuego y se le echa un poco de aceite con bija. Luego que la bija suelta su color, se procede a sacar las semillas, se echa la leche de coco y una verdura.

Se procede a mover la leche hasta que esté espesa, y cuando lo está se echa el pescado y en unos diez minutos, o menos, ya está listo.

Esta receta fue preparada por Yolanda al equipo de Listín Diario, quienes pudieron comprobar el sazón tan particular y sabroso que tiene esta Youtuber dominicana.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

*

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

          Confermato il divieto del Vaticano a Mons. Schneider      Cache   Translate Page      
Ricordo che Mons. Athanasius Schneider è stato il primo a mettere in luce il paradosso delle interpretazioni contraddittorie di «Amoris laetitia» dichiarando la necessità di chiarire per evitare la confusione generale [qui]. Ancor prima della formulazione dei Dubia, ai quali non ha tardato a dare pubblicamente il suo appoggio [qui], ribadendo "la bellezza non negoziabile del matrimonio cristiano" [qui] e rivolgendo un importante appello ai vescovi di tutto il mondo [qui].
Chi fosse interessato può consultare il nutrito indice degli articoli pubblicati sulla vexata questio.

Traduco da Gloria Tv
Comunicazioni sui social media hanno affermato che al vescovo del Kazakhistan Athanasius Schneider è stato proibito di viaggiare. 
Un Twitter del 4 novembre di Rorate-Caeli ha in parte confermato la notizia : "Gli è stato chiesto di ridurre la frequenza dei suoi viaggi fuori dalla sua diocesi, ma non gli sono stati proibiti tutti i viaggi". Mons. Schneider, nel 2011, è stato spostato come vescovo ausiliare da Karaganda ad Astana, in Kazakhstan, anche se il suo nuovo vescovo ha dichiarato in pubblico che non aveva bisogno di un vescovo ausiliare.

Riprendo da Stilum Curiae:
Il vescovo ausiliare di Astana, e precedentemente vescovo di Karaganda, Athanasius Schneider, ha ricevuto un’ingiunzione verbale dal Vaticano che gli chiede di ridurre la frequenza dei suoi viaggi all’estero.
Questa misura è stata presa nella primavera scorsa; il vescovo ha saputo di questa straordinaria misura restrittiva della sua libertà dal nunzio in Kazakhistan, Francis Assisi Chullikatt, ad aprile. Ma – altro elemento singolare in questa vicenda – è che mons. Schneider ha avuto lettura della disposizione, impartita direttamente dal Segretario di Stato, il card. Pietro Parolin, solo verbalmente.
Il nunzio non gli ha dato niente di scritto, nessun documento in base al quale il vescovo potesse prendere una qualche iniziativa legale, eventualmente presso la Congregazione per i Vescovi, o presso il Tribunale della Segnatura Apostolica, che, fino all’avvento di papa Bergoglio, era l’istanza presso cui laici preti e vescovi potevano appellarsi verso decisioni dell’autorità che ritenessero ingiuste.
Nessuna motivazione è stata data a mons. Schneider, secondo quanto risulta a persone a lui vicine, che abbiamo contattato, per spiegare questa straordinaria richiesta. Ogni volta che ha in programma un viaggio all’estero, deve comunicarlo al Nunzio. Non sappiamo se fra i poteri dell’ambasciatore pontificio vi sia anche quello, eventualmente, di negargli l’autorizzazione all’espatrio.
Mons. Athanasius Schneider, come sanno i lettori di Stilum Curiae, è una delle voci più libere e schiette nel denunciare – in maniera rispettosa e filiale, ma ferma – deviazioni e confusione presenti nella Chiesa di oggi. Impossibile non rilevare la disparità di trattamento fra di lui e il card. Theodore McCarrick, che, colpito dalle sanzioni di Benedetto XVI (fra cui il divieto di viaggiare) è stato inviato dal Pontefice in Cina, nelle Filippine, in Armenia e ha agito come trait-d’union con Cuba per preparare la visita del Pontefice. O anche verso il cardinale Maradiaga, Gran Consigliere del papa, che ha abbandonato – a motivo dei suoi frequentissimi viaggi – la diocesi di Tegucicalpa nelle mani del suo ausiliare, il vescovo Pineda, suo braccio destro obbligato alle dimissioni dalla lettera aperta di decine di seminaristi che lo accusavano di comportamenti scorretti, e le cui imprese recenti descrive Religion Confidencial.
D’altronde non c’è da stupirsi di questi atti segno evidente di un disagio sempre più marcato nei confronti delle voci libere in un regime in cui si parla di dialogo, ma dove le critiche sono temute. E dove però si preferiscono mezzi silenziosi e nascosti per limitare la libertà di espressione. Come il “consiglio” dato ai vescovi americani – sempre a voce, sempre da un nunzio – a non invitare nella diocesi persone come il card. Burke, e, se non è possibile evitare la sua presenza, non recarsi all’evento….

          Republicans could have taken a moral stand against Trump's racism. They didn't—now they're worried      Cache   Translate Page      

Having watched Donald Trump burn through state after state with the darkest, most blatantly racist message in a generation of politicians, Republicans are having second thoughts after clinging to Trump like an electoral life vest. In fact, some of them, who dared not give their name, sound downright pissed off.

“This stupid birthright stuff is hard-right fringe and loses us Hispanics and Cubans" in places like California and Florida, one moderate Republican House member told NBC News. “It juices Hispanic turnout in exurbs for potentially one to three points and is another reminder why Trump’s doom and gloom bullshit is so off-putting.”

Huh. You mean referring to some immigrants as the worst scum in the world” is driving Latinos to the polls?

Naturally, House Speaker Paul Ryan's messaging strategist made the weakest appeal ever via Twitter last weekend for the GOP to sound more positive notes. "Were going to spend all day and weekend talking about the strong economy, right?" Brendan Buck tweeted. Yeah, that'll do it.

Ryan also made a personal appeal to Trump via phone to stick to the economy, according to Politico. But Republicans are likely underestimating the damage Trump's doing. It's not just Latinos, it's the suburbs, where the GOP traditionally holds a big advantage. One GOP strategist, for instance, noted that Rep. John Culberson of Texas was running about four points ahead of Democrat Lizzie Panill Fletcher before Trump started blaring his nativist best. Now, internal polling puts Culberson several points behind. Culberson represents the Houston area, and his Dallas counterpart, GOP Rep. Pete Sessions, is also fighting for his political life.

For a look at the live McHenry County election results, click here:

10:01 p.m. - Democrat Lauren Underwood wins election to U.S. House in Illinois's 14th congressional district, per the Associated Press. As of this time, Randy Hultgren was winning the McHenry County portion of the race with 51.67 percent (25,582) of the vote to Underwood's 48.33 percent (23,931) with 94 percent of precincts reporting.

“As a registered nurse and lifelong health care advocate, Lauren Underwood has a tremendous record of service to her community and a deep understanding of the challenges they face. She’ll bring that needed perspective and experience to Congress,” said House Majority PAC Executive Director Charlie Kelly. “The voters of IL-14 saw Randy Hultgren for what he was – an out-of-touch career politician – and chose to elect a new generation of leadership and a champion for hardworking families in Lauren Underwood.”

9:49 p.m. – With 100 percent of precincts reporting in the McHenry County Board’s District 6, unofficial results showed Republican incumbents holding on to their seats. Michele Aavang grabbed 32.6 percent of the vote (7,862 votes) while Larry Smith tallied 30 percent (7,422 votes). Democratic challengers Buffy Brasile and Larry Spaeth fell short with 17.9 percent and 18.7 percent of the vote respectively. 

– Ed Komenda

9:33 p.m. – It appears Joe Tirio will be the next McHenry County Clerk. As of 9:30 p.m., with 93 percent of McHenry County precincts reporting, the sitting recorder had 56.6 percent of the vote, or 39,856 votes. Democratic challenger Andrew Georgi has 43.4 percent of the vote, or 30,536 votes.

– Ed Komenda

9:31 p.m. - Democrat Sean Casten has defeated six-term Republican Rep. Peter Roskam to flip a suburban Chicago district the GOP has held for more than four decades. Democrats targeted the seat in Chicago's west and northwest suburbs in an effort to win control of the House. It was Roskam's toughest challenge since the Wheaton lawmaker was first elected to Congress in 2006. Casten, a scientist and businessman from Downers Grove, argued Roskam was too conservative for a district that supported Hillary Clinton over President Donald Trump in 2016. He pointed to Roskam's record of opposing abortion and his record of voting along with Trump. Roskam insisted he's a moderate who opposed Trump when necessary. He criticized Casten as wanting to raise taxes and for name-calling and "embracing the politics of ridicule."

- Associated Press

9:02 p.m. - McHenry County voters have spoken and the referenda on the ballot have clear winners. The heavily debated McHenry Township Road District abolishment was voted down, the McHenry Rec Center was too but the McHenry District 156 referendum passed.

Also, both McHenry County Board term limits passed with more than 91 percent of the vote.

- Jon Styf

8:49 p.m. - McHenry County results certainly don’t mirror the statewide results. By 8:45 p.m., Republicans Erika Harold (attorney general) and Bruce Rauner had conceded their races despite winning McHenry County. Harold was up with 56.6 percent of the McHenry County vote while Rauner took 55.5 percent of it with 93 percent of precincts reporting.

Jesse White (secretary of state) is the only Democrat in a statewide race who will win the McHenry County vote. White took 58 percent of the vote in the county.

- Jon Styf

8:40 p.m. - Republican Erika Harold has conceded to Democrat Kwame Raoul in their battle for Illinois attorney general.

- Associated Press

8:17 p.m. – On behalf of the Democratic Governors Association, Governor Jay Inslee (D-WA) issued a statement on Democrat JB Pritzker’s victory in the Illinois’ governor race:

“Congratulations to Governor-Elect JB Pritzker for his commanding victory in Illinois. JB ran a model campaign, focused on the issues that matter to Illinois voters: strengthening health care, investing in education, and fixing the budget mess that Governor Bruce Rauner left. JB also built a strong campaign infrastructure to help up-and-down the ticket.

“Illinois voters spoke loudly today by overwhelmingly supporting JB’s plans to bring much needed change to the Land of Lincoln. JB will turn the page from the last four years in Illinois, and get the state moving in the right direction again.

“JB Pritzker has served his community as a national advocate for early childhood education and started a non-profit business incubator to bring tech jobs to Illinois. Now, as governor he will continue his record of service for Illinois families, focusing on creating jobs, expanding quality health care and investing in education. This is a much-welcomed turn around for Illinois. I’m honored to have worked with JB to add Illinois back to the Democratic column.”

Rauner posted this Tweet shortly before 8:30 p.m.: "It’s been an honor to serve. Thank you, Illinois."

– Ed Komenda

7:48 p.m. – A possible midterm story line is a “blue wave” narrative that includes Democrats taking multiple seats on the McHenry County Board. In the March primary, District 2 Democrat Suzanne Ness turned heads when she received more votes than any of the Republicans in the race. 

At the close of the polls Tuesday, District 2 candidate Josh Howell had 98 roadside signs and 300 yard signs planted around town. What did Ness’ campaign look like? The Woodstock Democrat gave a glimpse in a day-before-the-election note to her supporters: 

“[We] put out close to 300 signs, 12,000 mailers, 2500 postcards to targeted households, and knocked on close to 8000 doors.

Polling places post their results on the outside of the building on "white receipt paper," Howell said.

– Ed Komenda

1:32 p.m. – 36 percent of registered voters in McHenry County have cast ballots. Election judges are attributing the turnout to increased campaign advertising and the overall sentiment that individual votes count. Lots of places also reported seeing more young voters than usual

Election Day is upon us, which means many voters walked, biked or drove to their polling station while others, who took advantage of early or mail-in voting, spent the day like any other Tuesday. Amid all the updates and predictions and polling — and anxiety and Twitter refreshing and over-caffeinated conversations with colleagues — we asked voters like you to share their experience at the polls. Some like Cuban-American Ninfa Riestra Floyd of Lexington, Ky., told us they waited in line for a while. Floyd said it took two hours to vote. "I was blown away by the line snaking around the school," Floyd said. "I talked to many in that line. ... I heard so many great stories about why they were out voting in the midterms." Floyd left the polling place smiling, but "a little sad for my family in Cuba who has never cast a vote in a free election."

Mile High Murders (Aired April 11, 1950)
The show was at the top of the list among programs that had developed the technique of sound effects to a fine art. Each program was written with the sound in mind, not so much sound for sound's sake, but to advance the plot, add color or create atmosphere. Two sound effects men spent a reported ten hours in rehearsal for each broadcast, in addition to the time spent by the actors. East coast actors House Jameson, Don MacLaughlin, Phil Sterling and Lawson Zerbe [MBS] (Zerbe appeared as both David Harding and Harry Peters) were the only four actors to ever assume the role of David Harding--Jameson for the first two episodes only, replaced by Don MacLaughlin for the remainder of its twelve year run. Both Connecticut residents, House Jameson premiered in the role while Lord was still auditioning talent for the lead. By the third episode, Phillips H. Lord selected Don MacLaughlin for the role. MacLaughlin was by no means new to Radio, having already appeared in some 300 Radio productions since his debut over Radio in 1935. Show Notes From The Digital Deli. THIS EPISODE: April 11, 1950.

          NGƯỜI MỸ GỐC CHÂU Á CÓ THỂ BIẾN QUẬN CAM THÀNH BIỂN XANH HAY KHÔNG? (Viet Thanh Nguyen)       Cache   Translate Page

Bất bình với những chính sách chống nhập cư của đảng Cộng hòa, người Mỹ gốc châu Á có thể lật ngược thế cờ giúp cho đảng Dân chủ trong một số cuộc tranh cử khít khao vào Hạ viện ở miền Nam California.

Những lá cờ Việt Nam Cộng hòa và cờ Mỹ tung bay trong một sinh hoạt hàng năm của thuyền nhân Việt Nam tại Westminster Memorial Park ở Westminster, Calif., Vào tháng Tư. Nguồn: Leonard Ortiz/Orange County Register, via Getty Images

Năm 1988, khi tôi còn là sinh viên năm thứ nhất tại Đại học California, Riverside, tôi lái xe chở đám bạn học gốc Việt Nam háo hức đến Quận Cam ở gần đó. Khi đó chỉ mới 13 năm sau khi chiến tranh Việt Nam chấm dứt, nhưng đã có một giấc mơ người Mỹ gốc Việt mà Quận Cam là một biểu tượng, Trung tâm buôn bán Asian Garden ở Westminster. Giữa tiếng nhạc Việt Nam thời thượng, chúng tôi ăn món ăn Việt Nam, xem hàng Việt Nam, và ngồi trên ban công của trung tâm buôn bán kiểu Mỹ, nhâm nhi cà phê đá Việt Nam và ngắm nhìn người Việt Nam.

Khu mua sắm Asian Garden là trung tâm của Saigon Nhỏ ở Quận Cam. Đến năm 1988, Saigon Nhỏ đã vững vàng, với vô số các cửa hàng, nhà hàng và doanh nghiệp Việt Nam nằm trên Đại lộ Bolsa. Cộng đồng này gồm người tị nạn gốc Việt Nam và gốc Hoa, những người đã bỏ Việt Nam chạy thoát vào cuối cuộc chiến. Đó là một cộng đồng triệt để chống Cộng sản. Quận Cam nói chung là một cộng đồng khá bảo thủ và chống Cộng, nhưng nó cũng còn rất nhiều người Mỹ da trắng vào thời điểm đó. Không phải tất cả mọi người ở Westminster và Quận Cam đều hoan nghênh chào đón những người tị nạn cộng sản Việt Nam trong những năm 1970 và 1980.

Ba mươi năm sau, Westminster có một thị trưởng người Mỹ gốc Việt, và Quận Cam đã bầu một số chính khách người Mỹ gốc Việt. Hầu hết đều thuộc đảng Cộng hòa, và lớn tiếng chống Cộng sản. Nhưng ngày nay chủ nghĩa cộng sản không còn là vấn đề quốc gia như trước kia, và trong khi thế hệ người Mỹ gốc Việt lớn tuổi vẫn giữ khuynh hướng của đảng viên đảng Cộng hòa và bảo thủ, thế hệ trẻ phần lớn đã bỏ Đảng Cộng hòa, gia nhập đảng Dân chủ hoặc là cử tri độc lập. Những thay đổi này đã gây ra những thay đổi lớn hơn tại một Quận Cam trước đây từng kiên định theo khuynh hướng Cộng hòa, ngày nay ngày càng nghiêng về phía đảng Dân chủ và độc lập hơn. Những thay đổi chính trị này ít nhất một phần do sự thay đôi ở thành phần dân số trong một quận lỵ hiện nay có đến một phần năm người gốc châu Á và một phần ba người gốc châu Mỹ La tinh, trong khi đó, vào năm 1980, 80% là người da trắng không phải sắc dân châu Mỹ La tinh.

Thay đổi thành phần dân số kết hợp với ý thức hệ của dân chúng Quận Cam có thể là một trong những lý do chính khiến Đảng Cộng hòa nhất định đưa ra một chính sách chống nhập cư, tìm cách biến Hoa Kỳ trở lại thành một nước Mỹ trước năm 1965. Khi đó một bộ luật mới, Đạo luật Nhập cư và Nhập tịch, đã đưa ra một chính sách nhập cư công bằng hơn. Trong nhiều chục năm trước đó, Hoa Kỳ đã không nhận những người di dân từ châu Phi, châu Á hoặc châu Mỹ La tinh, bắt đầu với Đạo luật loại trừ người Trung Hoa từ năm 1882. Nếu là dân của một trong những lục địa này thì Đạo luật Nhập cư và Nhập tịch năm 1965 hầu như là một thành công. Nhưng đối với Đảng Cộng hòa, với thành phần cơ sở phần lớn là dân Mỹ da trắng từ nhiều năm, viễn cảnh trở thành một quốc gia thiểu số-đa số đã phát triển mạnh hơn sau năm 1965 có thể là điềm báo sự suy giảm quyền lực chính trị của đảng Cộng hòa.

Ở Quận Cam, dường như có một tỷ lệ nghịch, giữa sự gia tăng dân số người Mỹ gốc thiểu số [không phải người da trắng] với sự suy giảm quyền lực của Đảng Cộng hòa. Đảng Cộng hòa đang nắm đa số ở Hạ viện Quốc hội có thể dựa trên một số vài ghế dân biểu, một vài trong những ghế đó ở California, trong đó có bốn ghế ở Quận Cam; chính trị địa phương ở đây có thể có tầm quan trọng quốc gia. Ảnh hưởng chính trị sẽ là một làn gió mới cho khối người Mỹ gốc châu Á. Người Mỹ gốc Cuba ở Florida, sau khi bỏ đảo quốc chạy trốn, thoát khỏi chủ nghĩa cộng sản như người tị nạn cộng sản Việt Nam, đã phô trương ảnh hưởng trên chính trường quốc gia ở Mỹ một phần bằng cách đồng loạt bỏ phiếu như một khối bảo thủ thống nhất. Là một phần của khối người Mỹ gốc châu Á ở Quận Cam, liệu người Việt Nam – và người Mỹ gốc châu Á nói chung – có thể trở thành một một khối độc lập có thể bỏ phiếu cho cả hai bên hay không?

Đối với Đảng Cộng hòa, liên minh tinh thần chống cộng sản ở cuối thế kỷ 20 với các giá trị kinh tế và xã hội của khối bảo thủ đã thu hút nhiều người di cư gốc châu Á và người tị nạn cộng sản, kể cả cha mẹ tôi. Nhưng liên minh đó đã vỡ tan. Cha tôi nay đã 84 tuổi; cụ vẫn chống cộng sản, nhưng khinh thường Donald Trump. Ông không phải là người đơn độc. Ông Trump chỉ giành được 18% phiếu bầu của người Mỹ gốc châu Á và 32% phiếu bầu của người Mỹ gốc Việt Nam. Ngay cả nhiều đảng viên đảng Cộng hòa gốc châu Á cũng đang cảm thấy rất khó để tiếp tục ủng hộ đảng của họ vì đảng Cộng hòa không những chống những người tị nạn và những người di cư không có giấy tờ, mà còn chống đối cả những người nhập cư hợp pháp.

Ví dụ, một điều lệ của liên bang đang được đề nghị tên là “gánh nặng của chính phủ” [“public charge” – là những cá nhân phần lớn lệ thuộc vào chính phủ để sinh sống; ví dụ như nhận thêm tiền mặt để có đủ thu nhập hoặc đang ở trong các cơ sở của chính phủ, hoặc cần được chăm sóc dài hạn bằng chi phí của chính phủ – TM] sẽ từ chối không cấp thẻ xanh cho những người nhập cư hợp pháp đang dùng các chương trình tem phiếu thực phẩm, Medicaid và các chương trình trợ cấp liên bang khác, gồm tiền có được khi khai thuế (tax credits) để giúp mọi người mua bảo hiểm y tế. Những người nhập cư thuộc những loại kể trên có thể bị trục xuất. Bây giờ Tổng thống Trump vừa đề nghị xóa bỏ quyền công dân của trẻ em sinh tại Mỹ có cha mẹ là công dân nước khác. [Quyền này được Tu chính án thứ 14 của Hiến pháp Mỹ bảo vệ – TM].

Mặc dù rất khó để Tổng thống Trump có thể thực hiện lời tuyên bố đó, nhiều đảng viên đảng Cộng hòa đang thúc đẩy việc cắt giảm mạnh số người nhập cư theo chính sách đoàn tụ gia đình và ủng hộ cái gọi là chương trình nhập cư dựa trên khả năng. Hãy tạm thời quên đi cái chính sách chọn người nhập cư dựa trên “khả năng” đó sẽ loại ra rất nhiều người di cư da trắng ở những thế hệ trước, cũng như những người nhập cư gốc châu Á trong thời gian gần đây. Nhập cư theo chính sách đoàn tụ gia đình đã đưa rất nhiều người di cư châu Á vào nước Mỹ và giúp làm cho người Mỹ gốc châu Á trở thành sắc tộc thiểu số phát triển nhanh nhất tại đây. Nếu Đảng Cộng hòa hạn chế gắt gao chính sách đoàn tụ gia đình, thì họ có thể chết đứng trước khối đa số các cử tri người Mỹ gốc châu Á.

Đối với tôi, một người chỉ đến Quận Cam để thưởng thúc những món ăn Việt Nam ngon nhất ở ngoài Việt Nam thì ý tưởng Quận Cam, và nhất là Saigon Nhỏ, trở nên gần gũi hơn hoặc ngay cả do dự đến với đảng Dân chủ là điều lý thú, vì đây là nơi có dân số gốc Việt Nam lớn nhất bên ngoài Việt Nam. Nhưng nếu Đảng Dân chủ giả định rằng thành phần dân số dồng nghĩa với tương lai chính trị, thì họ có thể sẽ thất vọng. Lý do là cộng đồng người Mỹ gốc châu Á là một tập hợp đa dạng ở nhiều mặt, kể cả niềm tin chính trị và nỗi đam mê khác của họ.

Tại Quận Cam, một trong những cuộc vận động cử tri lớn nhất trong khối cử tri người Mỹ gốc châu Á đã xảy ra để phản đối một nỗ lực của quận hạt trong chương trình tìm nơi nương náu cho những người vô gia cư ở những thành phố trong địa phận của quận. Người Mỹ gốc châu Á ở những nơi giàu có hơn như Irvine đã lớn tiếng phản đối kế hoạch này của quận. Ban lãnh đạo người Mỹ gốc Việt của Westminster đã chống lại tư cách “đất dung thân” (sanctuary status) của tiểu bang California. Trên toàn quốc, chính sách “hành động khẳng định” (nâng đỡ dân thiểu số) trong việc tuyển sinh đại học, đặc biệt là ở các Đại học hàng đầu (Ivy League), đã làm rạn nứt cộng đồng người Mỹ gốc châu Á. Trong khi hầu hết người Mỹ gốc gốc Á ủng hộ chương trình nâng đỡ dân thiểu số, nhiều người Mỹ gốc Hoa phản đối, và họ đã mạnh mẽ phản đối chương trình này.

[Một lý do khiến người Mỹ gốc Hoa phản đối chương trình nâng đỡ dân thiểu số có thể là vì họ tự tin vào khả năng của sinh viên gốc Hoa, nhiều sinh viên sẽ được tuyển vào các đại học danh tiếng đó không cần phải nâng đỡ (1). – TM].

Tài sản và giáo dục, ở Quận Cam và trên toàn quốc, do đó vẫn có thể có những yếu tố mà Đảng Cộng hòa có thu hút được khối cử tri người Mỹ gốc châu Á. Một nhà báo ở Quận Cam Gustavo Arellano lập luận rằng, “Đảng Cộng hòa có thể tồn tại ở một nước Mỹ ngày càng đa dạng nếu nó làm cho người gố châu Á thanh người ‘da trắng’.” Sự quyến rũ về mực độ “trắng” đã có từ lâu trong khối người Mỹ gốc châu Á, một số trong khối sắc tộc này vẫn đôi lúc muốn liên minh với người da trắng và ngược lại, kể từ khi các địa chủ ruộng gòn trong thế kỷ 19 đưa công nhân người Trung Hoa đến miền Nam nước Mỹ để có thể làm việc thay cho những công nhân da đen. Nhưng những quyến rũ như vậy thường đổ vỡ vì những vụ kỳ thị như đưa người Mỹ gốc Nhật Bản vào nhà tù tập trung và Chiến tranh Việt Nam, đã thuyết phục nhiều người Mỹ gốc châu Á rằng họ không phải là người da trắng.

Hôm nay, một lần nữa, Đảng Cộng hòa đang đánh mất một cơ hội khác để thu hút người Mỹ gốc châu Á, những người sẵn sàng liên mình cùng xép hàng với người da trắng. Và đó là vì sự hấp dẫn của những dấu hiệu kỳ thị chủng tộc được mã hóa của nó đối với người Mỹ gốc châu Á về các vấn đề của giai cấp trung lưu như giáo dục, đường phố sạch sẽ và các khu phố an toàn đang bị những lời kêu gọi kỳ thị chủng tộc được mã hóa của khối người da trắng đối với dân di cư đè bẹp.

Thật là mỉa mai vì từ góc nhìn thuận lợi của Saigon Nhỏ và nhiều nơi khác ở Quận Cam nơi người Mỹ gốc châu Á và người Mỹ gốc Latinh đã xây dựng những cộng đồng phát triển mạnh; chính người nhập cư đã giữ cho khu vực này năng động về mặt kinh tế, đầy màu sắc về mặt văn hóa xã hội và một văn hóa ẩm thực thú vị. Khuynh hướng của đảng Cộng hòa cho rằng cắt giảm lớn ở mặt dân nhập cư sẽ giúp cho nước Mỹ tốt hơn, sẽ chỉ làm nó tổn thương – và giảm sự hấp dẫn đang tuột dốc của Đảng Cộng hòa đối với khối người Mỹ gốc châu Á.

(VNTB) - Thảo Vy (VNTB) - Dự thảo lần 2 của Nghị định “Quy định chi tiết một số điều của Luật An ninh mạng” mà Bộ Công an vừa đưa ra lấy ý kiến, cho thấy tất cả những hành vi có “tác động đến sự tồn tại của chế độ và Nhà nước Cộng hòa xã hội chủ nghĩa Việt Nam” đều phạm vào an ninh quốc gia. [http://bit.ly/2AK49lo]. Điều này hàm ý đe dọa rằng mọi ý kiến ‘bàn ra – tán vào’ dính líu tới sự lãnh đạo toàn diện của đảng cộng sản Việt Nam, có thể bị chụp chiếc mũ ‘an ninh quốc gia’.

Innova nóng quá mức? Câu chuyện về một chiếc xe Innova với tài xế nồng nặc mùi rượu, chở quá số người và chạy lùi trên đường cao tốc. Xe này sau đó va chạm với xe conterner, kết quả, tài xế conterner lãnh án 6 năm tù, và phải bồi thường dân sự gần 500 triệu đồng.

On Your Feet! is directed by two-time Tony Award winner Jerry Mitchell (Kinky Boots, Hairspray) and choreographed by Tony Award nominee & Olivier Award winner Sergio Trujillo (Jersey Boys, Memphis), with an original book by Academy Award-winner Alexander Dinelaris (Birdman, The Bodyguard Musical).

Thanks for your comment, Christine. I'm really glad you appreciate the educational component to what I am doing. I seem to be straddling the grey area between chocolate lover and cacao advocate, and sometimes find it difficult to bridge that gap. Most of my readers do understand that I dwell in that grey area and like to combine the two. But some are only interested in one or the other. By the way, cocoa nibs are just broken up roasted cocoa beans. Roasting of the beans makes them more mellow. That is probably why you found the roasted Cuban beans to be 'sweeter' than the fermented (but not roasted) cocoa beans from Costa Rica that I had brought you long ago. Cheers to chocolate. :-)

Doreen, once again your post is educational and fun to read and your photos add so much. I love traveling vicariously with you. I always appreciate the new tastes you bring with you and it was lovely to sample some of the Cuban cocoa beans. I found them much sweeter and tastier than others I've tried and I'd be more inclined to eat the entire beans rather than just the nibs, which is what I extracted from the other beans. Your generosity shows not only in your posts, where you are so complimentary to the people you meet, but in the spirit of educating us all from your chocolate travels.

The Robin Rice Gallery announces, 25 Years of Polaroids, a new exhibit by José Picayo. The exhibit will run through January 6, 2019. In this exhibition, Picayo seeks to revive the concept of unadulterated beauty captured as a single moment in time. An unapologetic user of film, Picayo prides himself on his avoidance of digital processing for personal work. When asked why it remains his preferred medium, Picayo answers, “Digital is so overpoweringly real; photography is more magical to me.” For Picayo, Polaroid film is a medium where he can capture something as is – a moment in time. Just to hold the photograph in his hands is enough. 25 Years of Polaroids showcases Picayo’s most iconic work. This exhibit includes personal photographs of Cuba from 1994, Polaroid image transfers showcasing his impressive use of visual texture and his

Quan chức 4 bộ 6 tỉnh trong 4 năm xuất ngoại 53,000 lượt, tốn 53 triệu Mỹ kim

Ảnh: Dân Việt
Một thống kê của thanh tra chính phủ CSVN cho thấy, quan chức chế độ dùng ngân sách nhà nước đi nước ngoài như đi chợ, tới 53,000 lượt, gây tốn kém hơn 53 triệu Mỹ kim trong 4 năm.

Theo báo Dân Việt, các con số này thuộc về một “thống kê nhanh”, chỉ bao gồm 4 bộ và 6 tỉnh thành. Sáu tỉnh thành gồm Thanh Hoá, Hoà Bình, Vĩnh Phúc, Đắk Lắk, Đồng Nai và Tiền Giang, tức chưa phải những tỉnh thành lớn nhất nước.
Tờ Dân Việt hôm Thứ Năm 21/06 trích dẫn kết quả thanh tra giai đoạn 2012 đến 2016 cho thấy, Bộ Tài Chính CSVN cử hơn 5,000 đoàn với khoảng 11,800 lượt viên chức xuất ngoại. Bộ Công Thương CSVN đã cử hơn 7,500 đoàn với khoảng 24,800 lượt viên chức xuất ngoại.
Chỉ riêng trong tháng 1 năm 2016, cựu Bộ Trưởng Công Thương Vũ Huy Hoàng cử đoàn viên chức đi dự một loạt hội chợ tại Argentina, Cuba và Panama trong 12 ngày. Đoàn này chỉ gồm 5 viên chức nhưng tiêu tốn hơn 62,000 Mỹ kim. Chi phí cho riêng Thứ Trưởng Công Thương Hồ Thị Kim Thoa là hơn 14,000 Mỹ kim.
Thống kê tại các tỉnh thành còn cho thấy, có những quan chức tỉnh thành đi nước ngoài chỉ để thăm thân nhân. Thanh tra chính phủ ghi nhận trường hợp nổi bật của phó bí thư tỉnh ủy Đồng Nai, bà Phan Thị Mỹ Thanh, có năm đi nước ngoài tới 10 lần, bao gồm cả việc công và việc riêng.

"I was blown away by the line snaking around the school," Floyd said. "I talked to many in that line. ... I heard so many great stories about why they were out voting in the midterms." Floyd left the polling place smiling, but "a little sad for my family in Cuba who has never cast a vote in a free election."

          Polis ketatkan kawalan berikutan pendengaran keputusan kes saman Musa      Cache   Translate Page      
THE MALAYSIAN TIMES
 



KOTA KINABALU: Polis Sabah akan memperketatkan kawalan di beberapa kawasan di Kota Kinabalu berikutan pendengaran keputusan mahkamah melibatkan saman bekas Ketua Menteri Sabah Tan Sri Musa Aman yang mencabar pelantikan Ketua Menteri Sabah Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal pada 7 Nov ini.

Pesuruhjaya Polis Sabah Datuk Omar Mammah berkata selain sekitar kawasan Kompleks Mahkamah Kota Kinabalu, pihak polis juga meningkatkan kawalan di Pusat Pentadbiran Negeri Sabah (PPNS) dan beberapa kawasan lain, namun enggan mengulas kawasan lain itu.

“Saya ingin menasihatkan agar penyokong kedua-dua pihak (Musa dan Mohd Shafie) supaya menghormati keselamatan dan ketenteraman awam.

“Polis tidak akan teragak-agak untuk menangkap sesiapa sahaja yang cuba menimbulkan gangguan terhadap keselamatan orang lain dan prosiding mahkamah,” katanya.

Beliau berkata demikian kepada pemberita selepas menyaksikan majlis serah terima tugas Timbalan Pesuruhjaya Polis (PJP) Sabah antara Ketua Jabatan Pengurusan Ibu Pejabat Polis Sabah SAC Mohamad Zulkarnain Abdul Rahman, yang memangku Timbalan PJP Negeri, dan bekas Timbalan Pengarah Pengurusan (Pentadbiran) Bukit Aman Datuk Zaini Jass di sini hari ini.

Pada 6 Jun lalu, Musa yang juga Anggota Dewan Undangan Negeri Sungai Sibuga, memfailkan saman terhadap Yang Dipertua Negeri Tun Juhar Mahiruddin dan Mohd Shafie 17 Mei lepas memohon pengisytiharan Musa kekal sebagai ketua menteri Sabah yang sah.

Mengenai kekecohan pada pemilihan PKR di Keningau Sabtu lepas (3 Nov), Omar berkata beliau telah mengarahkan Ibu Pejabat Polis Daerah Keningau untuk merakamkan keterangan saksi mengenai kejadian itu.

Pemilihan Cabang PKR Keningau kecoh apabila penyokong seorang calon yang bertanding jawatan Ketua Cabang itu bertindak menceroboh pusat pemilihan selepas pusat berkenaan ditutup pada jam 4 petang.

Sementara itu, Omar memberitahu pihak polis telah menyelesaikan siasatan kes rogol seorang remaja perempuan berumur 14 tahun di sebuah pusat tahanan sementara di Papar dan akan menyerahkan kes itu kepada Pejabat Pengarah Pendakwa Raya Sabah untuk tindakan lanjut.
 
Katanya, seorang suspek yang dipercayai bertugas sebagai salah seorang pengawal pusat tahanan itu ditahan polis dan dipercayai mangsa dan suspek saling mengenali satu sama lain.

Mangsa, yang ditahan di pusat itu sejak November tahun lepas dan telah dihantar pulang ke negara asalnya Filipina selepas kejadian, didakwa dirogol di pusat itu pada Mei lepas dan hamil enam bulan.—Bernama


          Isteri nasihat Aliff jangan datang konsert GegarVaganza      Cache   Translate Page

KUALA LUMPUR – Isteri Datuk Seri Aliff Syukri Kamarzaman iaitu Datin Seri Nur Shahida Mohd Rashid menasihatkan suaminya supaya tidak menghadiri konsert Gegar Vaganza pada minggu-minggu akan datang.

Kecewa dengan kritikan netizen yang berterusan, Nur Shahida turut mencadangkan kepada suaminya supaya pulang ke kampung untuk membela kambing dan menjaga ayam serta itik.

“I dah cakap dengan you tak perlu keluar TV sebab tak semua faham cara you cakap sebab you suka terlepas @aliffsyukriterlajaklaris.

“Tak pasal banyak betul orang yang ‘sekolahkan’ (kritik) you hari ni, Datuk, Dr lah,chef lah, artis semua adalah.

“Yang kenal taulah, yang tak kenal macam-macam ayat mereka keluar sampai semua perkataan maki hamun dah keluar sampai mereka pun tak tahu nak maki apa dah,” katanya menerusi luahan di laman Instagram miliknya.

Luahan tersebut ditulis Nur Shahida susulan tindakan netizen yang berlarutan mengecam jutawan kosmetik itu kerana terlanjur percakapan ketika mempromosikan produk pemutih gigi semasa siaran langsung konsert GegarVaganza musim kelima Ahad lalu.

Dalam rancangan itu, Aliff telah mengeluarkan perkataan ‘berwajah hodoh dan bomoh’ terhadap seorang penonton yang berada di Auditorium Majlis Bandaraya Shah Alam (MBSA) menyaksikan konsert itu.

Aliff turut mendekati wanita tersebut dan kemudian membuat demonstrasi ke atas penonton itu dengan mengenakan produk yang ada ditangannya ke wajah wanita tersebut.

Meskipun wanita berkenaan dilihat bersikap selamba selepas diperlakukan sedemikian namun, dia kemudian bertindak meninggalkan tempat duduknya.

Isteri usahawan kosmetik terkenal itu juga turut melahirkan rasa kesal terhadap orang ramai yang mengecam suaminya meskipun permohonan maaf telah dilafazkan pada rancangan sama selepas menerima kritikan menerusi Instagram.

Rata-rata netizen menyifatkan, sikap Aliff itu sebagai melampau kerana cuba melariskan produk dengan cara yang keterlaluan. – MalaysiaGazette


          Apa sesudah Umno tanpa Tok Pa?      Cache   Translate Page      

 
   

ULASAN | Umno hari ini nampaknya semakin disimbah kecelaruan. Ada kelihatan isyarat bahawa pertubuhan yang padu itu mula mengalami keretakan.

Retak itu pula seolah-olah menanti belah.

Pada sisi lain Umno dilihat masih gah. Dengan keanggotaan yang berjuta orang Umno parti yang disegani. Namun di bawah sedar jumlah itu tidak lebih sekadar buih-buih dari gulungan ombak yang terdampar di pantai.

Dalam beberapa detik ia pecah satu per satu sebagai natijah kekalahan mereka pada pilihan raya umum (PRU) lalu.

Selepas Datuk Seri Mustapa Mohamed membuat mengumuman menyertai Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (BERSATU) malam kelmarin, maka gegerlah Umno seantero tanah air.

Ia bukan saja tidak dibayangkan oleh Umno, terutama di Kelantan, malah langkah Tok Pa itu mungkin tidak pernah diigaukan oleh sesiapa pun.

Namun apa yang terjadi pada parti itu kini seperti sedang pasrah menunggu kutukan hukum karma.

Langkah serba tak kena

Dari Bukit Marak, ke Bukit Peraksi kemudian ke Bukit Panau penulis cuba membaca gerak-gerak isyarat yang dihantar dari jauh. Sejauh Bagan Datuk dan Sembrong.

Derap langkah di buka Tok Pa di Jeli seakan-akan bergema merentasi Banjaran Titiwangsa.

Ketika ini, Umno memang sedang kesulitan dan perlukan kebijaksanaan paling tepat untuk memastikan kelangsungan hayat politiknya.

Masalahnya ialah kadang-kadang kebijaksanaan itu menjadi serta tak kena.

Mahu ke kanan, salah. Mahu ke kiri, janggal. Memilih ke depan, segan. Ke belakang juga bimbang diketawakan.

Ketika presidennya, Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi diselubungkan dengan lebih 40 tuduhan di mahkamah, timbul pula soseh-soseh yang menyuruhnya bercuti seketika.
Dan - biasalah - untuk menjadikan politik itu terus hidup, kemudian ada pula teriak-teriak yang mahu anggota parlimen Bagan Datuk tersebut terus istiqamah dengan jawatannya.

Isunya ialah: adakah Tok Pa yang terakhir.

Sifir politik Umno ialah, mereka tidak biasa kalah. Kalah bermakna "susah".

Justeru adakah gerak anggota parlimen Umno akan stabil sesudah Tok Pa?

Alkisah isyarat yang dipancarkan di peringkat bawahan bukanlah begitu. Dalam politik Umno yang masih tebal dengan tradisi 'payung-memayung' dan penguasaan warlord kehilangan kuasa akan membawa kepada kesesakan nafas ramai orang.

Rehat atau tidak

Justeru kewujudan kem-kem yang ditambat pada pemimpin tertentu menjadi lebih menonjol dan mengundang spekulasi mendebarkan.

Ketika diakui Ahmad Zahid memiliki kem sendiri, kelompok yang lain itu jangan pula dinafikan kewujudannya. Ia bersifat dinamik - atau jika mahu meminjam istilah PAS, mutaghayyirat.

Pada masa sama jangan sesekali dilupa bahawa sebelum Ahmad Zahid menjadi Ahmad Zahid sekarang, beliau pernah menjadi mulut kepada Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

Sangat naif untuk berfikir bahawa hanya Ahmad Zahid yang ada kumpulan dalam Umno dan pengaruh Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad adalah sifar.
Tok Pa menjadi bukti bahawa perdana menteri itu seorang "otai" yang masih berbisa.

Pada masa sama sepak terajang Pakatan Harapan masih penuh dengan intrig dan risiko.

Sehari dua ini, kita lihat bagaimana Ahmad Zahid cuba direhatkan. Setakat ini usaha itu gagal. Atau mungkin lebih daripada itu, ia bukan ditolak, cuma suatu kejayaan yang tertangguh.

Faktor salah seorang bekas naib presiden Umno juga tidak boleh ditolak ketepi, iaitu Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein.
Ada cakap-cakap mendakwa lebih 20 anggota parlimen dan orang kuat Umno sedang bersiap siaga melakukan penghijrahan dengan untuk bersama Dr Mahathir.

Di Kelantan sendiri sekurang-kurangnya seorang anggota parlimen Umno disebut-sebut akan mengikuti jejak Tok Pa.

Sementara itu, hasil intaian penulis didapati beberapa tokoh utama Umno Terengganu pula bakal menyertai Parti Amanah Negara (AMANAH).

Dua orang bekas pemimpin kanan kerajaan negeri dan seorang bekas calon parlimen dari Umno bakal mengumumkan penyertaan mereka ke AMANAH tidak lama lagi.

Pengumuman itu mungkin dibuat seawal 9 Nov ini semasa majlis makan malam Pemuda AMANAH Terengganu. Dikhabarkan borang permohonan ahli akan disambut Timbalan Presiden AMANAH, Datuk Salahuddin Ayub.

Ya, semua itu sekadar gosip. Cakap-cakap mengenainya sekadar serkap jarang atau tembakan peluru penabur. Namun taranum yang berlagu dalam siasah semasa tetap boleh dibaca lenggok hujung pangkalnya.

Dan dalam politik khususnya situasi di Malaysia kini, tiada yang mustahil.

Ada kemungkinan yang agak besar untuk kita menyaksikan acara pertandingan larian tiba-tiba bertukar arah dan permuafakatan yang tidak dijangka.

Difahamkan memang ramai orang Umno akan mengikut jejak langkah Tok Pa terutama mereka yang mengagumi Dr Mahathir.

Justeru, Umno kini berada di persimpangan. Jika mereka gagal menyediakan solusi terbaik, parti itu akan kehilangan ramai pendukung yang selama ini begitu komited memperjuangkan agenda parti.

Tiwa Savage Becomes First Female To Win MTV Best African Act
Tiwa shows off her award
 
Nigerian singer, Tiwa Savage has become the first Nigerian female artist to win the MTV Europe Music Awards (MTV EMAs) in the Best African Act category.
 
News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the Afro-pop singer snatched the record-breaking award at the 2018 MTV EMAs held on Sunday at the Bilbao Exhibition Center, Bilbao, Spain with several music stars across the world in attendance.
 
The African act category, in 2005, was infused into the MTV EMA to enhance musical alliances across borders, and promote cultural integrations.
 
NAN reports that until Tiwa’s win, three Nigerians had taken the award home including 2Baba in 2005, D’banj in 2007 and 2012; and Davido in 2017.
 
In 2018, Tiwa was nominated alongside fellow Nigerian act, David Adeleke, aka Davido; South Africa’s Distruction Boyz and Shekinah; Kenya’s Nyashinski and Fally Ipupa from the DRC.
 
Celebrating the award, Tiwa took to her Instagram page @tiwasavage to dedicate the win to African women and aspiring young girls.
 
She said, “Almighty God, you are so faithful. My savage soldiers did it for me.
 
“You have stuck with me through the roller coasters. Thank you. To my amazing team, this is just the beginning. African women, this is for us.

“I have been through a lot but I have kept my head up and weathered the storm because I know some little girl somewhere is dreaming like I did,” Tiwa said.
 
She signed a recording contract with Mavin Records in 2012 and currently has a songwriting deal with Sony/ATV Music Publishing.
 
The mother of one also signed a management and publishing deal with Roc Nation in June 2016.
 
However, the biggest winner at the awards night was the Cuban-American singer Camila Cabello.
 
She scooped four awards, winning “Best Song,” “Best Artist,” “Best Video” and “Best U.S. Act” in a show that featured a stellar performance from Janet Jackson.
 
Cabello, 21, who already led the pack at the MTV Video Music Awards in August, urged her fans in the United States to vote in the 2018 midterm elections as she walked the red carpet in the northern Spanish city of Bilbao, Reuters reported.
 
The singer, who rose to fame as a member of the girl group “Fifth Harmony,” formed on the U.S. edition of the X-Factor, said she relished being seen as a role model.
 
“I feel like the message for me has always been just like do what makes you happy, even if it’s scary, it’s worth it to take the risk because your happiness is your responsibility,” Cabello said.

“That’s always been my message and I talk about it a lot but I feel like it’s a good message. And yes, very important, go vote!” she said.

          MAKAN DI GLAMOUR SEAFOOD      Cache   Translate Page      
Assalamualaikum...

SEJAK minggu lepas,  Encik Rizar dok sebut-sebut nak cuba makanan laut di Glamour Seafood yang terletak di kawasan Perumahan Rakyat Sri Stulang.  Namapun glamour,  lokasi ini dikatakan terkenal lama sejak beberapa tahun lepas cuma kami saja yang baru nak kenal.  Tak sangka di kawasan rumah flat ini ada medan selera yang menempatkan pelbagai jenis kedai di bawah satu bumbung.  Ni balik-balik makan di Sayam..  Sayam..  Sayam..  sampai kebosanan. 


Apa yang menarik perhatian Sk ketika memilih makanan laut ialah tanda harga yang telah ditampal siap-siap pada badan ikan-ikan yang dipamerkan ni.  Jadi,  senanglah kita nak pilih ikan mengikut RM yang kita bawa.  Tapi macam ikan siakap dan haiwan lain tu kita perlu pilih dan timbang dulu sebelum dimasak.  Kami pilih ikan siakap,  sebab nak masak stim.  Tak pernah cuba lagi masakan stim dengan ikan jenahak,  takut tak menepati selera. 


Selain ikan siakap yang mohon dimasak stim limau,  Sk juga pilih 4 ekor sotong saiz sederhana untuk digoreng tepung.  Siapa biasa baca blog Sk tentu tahu Sk sangat suka makan sotong goreng tepung 😂

Jadi,  bila pinggan sotong ni diletakkan di atas meja rasa sangat bersyukur sebab dapat sepinggan besar.  Maknanya boleh makan puas-puas. Sotongnya digoreng dengan rangup bukan macam jemput-jemput di kebanyakan warung tomyam.  Cuma macam terlebih serbuk kunyit pulak.  Cicahnya cili sos dan bukannya sos cili thai jadi kureng di situ,  tapi tak kisahlah sebab Sk memang makan begitu saja. 


Scarlop Masak Sambal. 
Memang sedap masakannya dan tidak menghampakan.  Iman pulak tukang asingkan isi dari shell maka senanglah mak dan ayahnya makan.  Nyum nyum nyum! 


Disebabkan tak ada baby kailan jadi ER minta Kangkung Goreng Belacan. 
Bagi Sk sedap tapi ER kata tak boleh lawan kangkung belacan di mana tah dia makan.. sk lupa,  hahaha. 
Cuma batang kangkung tu dipotong agak panjang dan besar. 
Sebab Sk suka makan sayur maka Sk tukang perbaiskannya.. Yey! 


Tomyam Seafood. 
Yang ni bagi Sk tak berapa sangat kerana kuat rasa paste tomyam.  Sk suka tomyam yang asli bahannya. Isinya udang seekor,  hirisan sotong dan kupang.

Mulanya tak plan pun ambil tomyam,  tapi minta kemudian sebab takut makan tak berkuah,  rupanya tak berapa laku. Sebab apa tau? 


Haaa.. Inilah sebabnya.  Bila sampai jer Siakap Stim Limau ni,  semua dah tak pandang tomyam tadi,  hihihi. 
Tukang masak tak kedekut langsung buatkan kuah untul stim limau ni dan ternyata hidangan paling win laaa.  
Sambil taip ni pon teringat-ingat sedapnya rasa stim limau dia.  Seimbang masam garam gula dan pedasnya ditambah ikan siakap yang sangat terasa kesegarannya. 
Siakap laut yang besar dan tebal serta gebu isinya ni memang sesuai sangat dimasak stim tapi lain kali Sk nak cuba pulak masak tiga rasa nak tengok sedap ke tak sosnya. 

Selain rasa,  persembahan setiap masakan juga sangat mantap cuma kalau datang ke sini anda kena bawa bersabar banyak-banyak sebab masakan agak lambat disiapkan mungkin tukang masaknya tak ramai.  Tapi terubat hati oi  bila dihidangkan dengan masakan yang sedap,  rasa sungguh berbaloi.

Medan Selera Perumahan Rakyat Sri Stulang
Memang best!

  • Observations on Hacktoberfest 2018

    This term I'm teaching two sections of our Topics in Open Source Development course. The course aims to take upper-semester CS students into open source projects, and get them working on real-world software.

    My usual approach is to put the entire class on the same large open source project. I like this method, because it means that students can help mentor each other, and we can form a shadow-community off to the side of the main project. Typically I've used Mozilla as a place to do this work.

    [...]

    Finally, a theme I saw again and again was students beginning to find their place within the larger, global, open source community. Many students had their blogs quoted or featured on social media, and were surprised that other people around the world had seen them and their work.

After Irma, After Maria: Caribbean Women Writing the Storms
Saturday, November 17 @ 11:30 am
Room 8301 [Building 8, 3rd Floor)

Modern Caribbean literature captures not just the endemic mismanagement of natural resources and public projects, but also the enduring chasm between promises of progress through major infrastructures and the outcomes of natural disasters for average citizens. 

In this panel, four Caribbean writers reflect on the devastation from Hurricanes Irma and Maria to many Caribbean islands whose economies rely on tourism; they pay considerable attention to the Caribbean bodies caught in the crosscurrents of a catastrophic natural history. With Edwidge Danticat (Haiti), Loretta Collins Klobah (Puerto Rico), Tiphanie Yanique (Virgin Islands), and Jessica Pabón-Colón (Puerto Rico).

The Realities of Haitian Migrations
Sunday, November 18 @ 3:30 pm
Room 8301 [Building 8, 3rd Floor]

In Haitian Creole with simultaneous interpretation into English

Individuals who migrate often experience the loss of cultural norms, religious customs, and social support systems. The adjustment to a new culture brings forth changes in identity and concept of self. In the case of Haiti, how do these changes affect the motherland – and the Haitian communities of the Diaspora?
In this panel, academics and experts in the literary field will speak to the issue of Haitian migration, racial, gender, and national identity, and ultimately, of life in the balance. With Pauris Jean-Baptiste (writer), Pierre Buteau (historian), Inéma Jeudi (journalist), and Claude Charles (ethnologist). Moderated by Marleine Bastien, Executive Director of FANM


#MeToo Movement in the Afro-Caribbean Communities
Sunday, November 18 @ 5:30 pm
Room 8301 (Building 8, 3rd Floor)

In many African-Caribbean communities, reactions to the #MeToo movement often reflect a lack of adequate thought about abuse; in fact, these reactions can even indicate increasing levels of gender-based violence as a norm. Women brave enough to come out with their ordeals are often silenced or made to face backlash for their choice to demand justice. Academics and writing professionals will discuss the blurry lines between abuse and what is considered “normal” gender relations and “natural”’ male behavior in Haiti and other African-Caribbean countries, and present ideas on ways that literature can support the women in impoverished/conflict countries. With Judite Blanc (research psychologist), Monique Clesca (UN Specialist), Marlene Chouloute-Hyppolite (writer), and Georges Bossous (human rights activist). Moderated by Anaïse Chavenet (literary publicist). [In Haitian Creole with simultaneous interpretation into English]

[North Korea], Nov 7 (ANI): North Korean leader Kim Jong-un on Tuesday met Cuban President Miguel Mario Diaz-Canel Bermudez at his office and discussed on how to strengthen bilateral cooperation between the two countries.

According to North Korea's state media, Bermudez, who arrived in Pyongyang on Sunday along with his wife, Lis Cuesta Peraza, was on his first overseas visit since he took office in April, Yonhap News Agency reported.

The Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said that the two leaders discussed the current situations of their nations and the "successes and experience gained in socio-economic development."

Kim and Bermudez had "honest and sincere views on various issues in the field of party activities and socialist constructions" of the two countries, the current scenario of the Korean Peninsula and other global issues, the KCNA added.

After their bilateral engagements, the two leaders had a state dinner together and witnessed a gymnastics and artistic performance titled 'The Glorious Country', at the May Day Stadium.

On Wednesday morning, Kim and his wife Ri Sol-ju saw off the Cuban President and his wife. (ANI)

          La amenaza de Bolsonaro       Cache   Translate Page      
   Se ha señalado en días recientes que el gobierno que en breve encabezará en Brasil el ultraderechista Jair Bolsonaro plantea graves amenazas para la democracia, la economía y la sociedad brasileñas. Los propósitos autoritarios, el fundamentalismo neoliberal y las expresiones misóginas, homofóbicas y racistas del presidente electo hacen temer severas regresiones del mayor país de Latinoamérica. Por añadidura, en los medios brasileños cunde la justificada preocupación por los recientes amagos de intolerancia y favoritismo del ex capitán, quien en días pasados anunció su propósito de excluir del reparto de los fondos de publicidad oficial –500 milones de dólares– a las instancias de información que lo han criticado, como el diario Folha de Sao Paulo, al que prometió acabar, en lo que constituye un amago dictatorial e inadmisible. A ello se suman las cerca de 75 amenazas que partidarios de Bolsonaro han formulado en contra de informadores y que derivaron en violencia física.
Así pues, a sus elogios de la represión y la exclusión, el próximo mandatario brasileño ha sumado el elogio de la censura, y es imposible desvincular semejante ofensiva en contra de medios y comunicadores –que hace palidecer los virulentos ataques de Donald Trump a periodistas, diarios y cadenas de televisión estadunidenses–, de una arremetida en contra de la democracia, la civilidad y la convivencia, de por sí difíciles en el polarizado contexto político y social del Brasil contemporáneo. Es claro que varios de los designios gubernamentales de Bolsonaro son de imposible o muy difícil materialización en presencia de una información diversa y crítica y que para su cumplimiento requieren del silencio de las dictaduras. Por ello, la situación comentada debiera ser tomada como un mensaje de alerta por el conjunto de la sociedad brasileña, la cual padeció en el pasado los horrores de un régimen totalitario.
Por lo demás, el peligro de Bolsonaro no se restringe al territorio brasileño, sino que se extiende a la proyección internacional del próximo gobierno. En una entrevista publicada el viernes de la semana pasada por el Correio Braziliense, el político glicerense manifestó su determinación de romper las relaciones diplomáticas entre su país y Cuba –porque, según dijo, no tiene sentido mantenerlas–, una medida que ningún gobierno latinoamericano, por derechista que haya sido, se ha atrevido a tomar desde el fin del ciclo de dictaduras militares que asolaron a la región. Por su parte, el general retirado Hamilton Mourao, vicepresidente electo de Brasil, amenazó con intensificar la presión diplomática hacia Venezuela con el propósito de deponer al régimen chavista, en lo que constituye una actitud injerencista que violenta la legalidad internacional e introduce tensiones adicionales en un entorno sudamericano que hasta hace dos años avanzaba hacia la armonía, la cooperación y la integración bajo gobiernos de signo progresista y que hoy está dominado por las derechas regresivas.
Como signo de estos tiempos, el mandatario chileno, el derechista Sebastián Piñera, acaso envalentonado por la reciente victoria electoral de Bolsonaro en Brasil, abandonó la mesura verbal que lo había caracterizado y arremetió en contra de las autoridades de Cuba y Venezuela; de las ex presidentas de Argentina y Brasil, Cristina Fernández y Dilma Rousseff, respectivamente; de los ex mandatarios brasileño y ecuatoriano, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva y Rafael Correa, y del actual jefe de Estado boliviano, Evo Morales.
En suma, el fenómeno de Bolsonaro no sólo amenaza con destruir la democracia brasileña sino también con convertirse en un factor tóxico y desestabilizador para toda América Latina.

(AVN) El primera base de los Indios de Cleveland, Yandy Díaz, confirmó que jugará con los Leones del Caracas a partir de diciembre, luego de resolver asuntos personales y descansar tras la temporada de Grandes Ligas.

El cubano confirmó su presencia en la Liga Venezolana de Béisbol Profesional (LVBP) a través del programa Menú Deportivo, de la canal ESPN Deportes. En dicho espacio detalló que la gerencia de Cleveland le dio el sí para participar en la pelota criolla, pero que debía jugar en la primera base para mejorar su defensa.

          W2M inicia su expansión global en América tras consolidarse en el Caribe      Cache   Translate Page      

Despues de haberse centrado en el último año en el lanzamiento del negocio en el Caribe, World2Meet (W2M) ha dado por consolidado su negocio en la zona y se prepara para iniciar una etapa de fuerte crecimiento en esa región, al mismo tiempo que inicia la expansión en Latinoamérica.


Según comenta Luis Reche, VP Regional de W2M Américas, “2018 ha sido un año de consolidación, donde hemos establecido las bases para poder crecer rápidamente con todas las garantías de éxito. Durante este año, hemos completado el set up de W2M en la región, abriendo oficinas propias en México – Cancún, Riviera Maya y Puerto Vallarta-, República Dominicana – Santo Domingo, Punta Cana y Puerto Plata- y en Cuba – La Habana y Varadero, además de delegaciones en los principales polos turísticos”.

En la actualidad, W2M ya cuenta con ocho oficinas propias, delegaciones en los principales destinos turísticos y un equipo local de más de 200 personas, que le permiten ofrecer todos los servicios receptivos de transporte, asistencia, tours, circuitos, grupos y cruceros a todos sus clientes.

De cara al futuro, la compañía tiene un ambicioso plan de contratación de producto propio de hoteles, con una gran recepción del mercado y de sus socios hoteleros, y que estará completado en la primera mitad de 2019. “En estos momentos ya tenemos prácticamente cerrada la contratación en Cuba y República Dominicana, y estamos centrados en México. Además, hemos comenzado este último trimestre del año la contratación y expansión en otras áreas de Caribe como Aruba, Curaçao, Jamaica, Bahamas y Barbados, entre otros”, subraya Luis Reche.

En cuanto a sus planes de expansión en 2019, W2M centra su foco en LATAM, donde prevé comenzar a operar con producto propio a lo largo del año en Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Panamá, Costa Rica y Brasil

Para alcanzar el objetivo de crecer en Latinoamérica, el VP Regional para Américas anuncia que “en diciembre de 2018, estará operativo un call center propio en Cancún, dimensionado para poder dar servicio a todos los mercados americanos, lo que nos permitirá ofrecer un servicio de más calidad y más cercano y hacer frente a este crecimiento”.

Por su parte, Patricia Rossello COO de W2M añade que “Américas es un destino clave para nosotros. Por ese motivo, hacemos una apuesta con todo el esfuerzo humano y material necesario para consolidar nuestra posición en la región y lograr rápidos crecimientos. Estamos muy contentos con los rápidos avances obtenidos y esperamos que se siga materializando con fuertes crecimientos este año. Todo sin dejar de lado por supuesto nuestra apuesta por el mercado español, donde seguimos con unos ambiciosos planes de expansión, y donde también hemos realizado mejoras, tanto técnicas como operativas, para hacer frente al fuerte crecimiento que seguimos experimentando”.


          Cuba impulsa el turismo de eventos de cara al 500 aniversario de La Habana      Cache   Translate Page      

Cuba apuesta por el turismo de eventos para convertir a La Habana en el principal centro de reuniones internacionales del país, entre ellas la próxima Feria del Turismo de 2019, que celebrará los 500 años de esta ciudad, que recibe más del 50% de los visitantes que llegan a la isla.


"La Habana es la capital de los eventos en la nación, por lo que significa, por los valores únicos que atesora La Habana Vieja", afirmó el ministro de Turismo de la isla, Manuel Marrero, en una entrevista publicada en el periódico estatal Juventud Rebelde.

Desde que en los años noventa la isla se abrió al turismo internacional para enfrentar la demoledora crisis económica que le causó la retirada de los subsidios soviéticos al caer la URSS, la modalidad que se había promocionado eminentemente es la de "sol y playa".

El titular de Turismo considera que en la capital se concentra "todo el componente cultural", lo que convierte a la ciudad en un "destino ideal" para el turismo de reuniones, eventos e incentivos.

El ministro de Turismo de Cuba, Manuel Marrero

Marrero reconoce que ha llevado años impulsar esta modalidad de turismo en el país cuya "prioridad e importancia" va tomando fuerza en polos como Varadero y los cayos, donde se construyen nuevos hoteles dotados de salones y facilidades para realizar eventos.

Avanzó que la próxima Feria Internacional del Turismo de Cuba se celebrará en el complejo histórico-militar Morro-Cabaña, uno de los sitios con mayor atracción patrimonial y cultural de La Habana, por lo que convertirlo en escenario "es una combinación perfecta que permitirá dar un gran impulso a La Habana en su medio milenio".

España será el país invitado en la próxima edición de la Feria Internacional del Turismo de Cuba

El ministro cubano del sector resaltó el "papel importante" que representa la capital de la isla, al recibir a más del 50% del turismo, y además registrar 2,5 millones de entradas anuales por su aeropuerto internacional.

Como un "indicador importante" señaló que un 40% de visitantes internacionales que recibe Cuba repiten, el 21% de ellos en La Habana, por lo que auguró que la próxima apertura de hoteles de máximo estándar supondrá "un bombazo de calidad que confiere gran prestancia a la capital".

Según detalló, en la capital cubana hay 11 hoteles cinco estrellas, y al finalizar 2023 deben sumarse otros diez con esa categoría, lo que a su juicio sintetiza "la prioridad" que se le está dando a la ciudad en el mapa turístico nacional.

El turismo es la segunda fuente de ingresos de Cuba por detrás de la venta de servicios profesionales al exterior, lo que contribuye en un 10% al Producto Interior Bruto (PIB) y genera medio millón de empleos.

Este año las autoridades turísticas cubanas han previsto acoger a cerca de 4,7 millones de visitantes y para 2019 proyectan recibir a más de 5 millones de viajeros extranjeros.


          Cuba abre a la inversión extranjera 187 proyectos de desarrollo turístico      Cache   Translate Page      

Cuba presentó la sexta versión de su Cartera de oportunidades para la Inversión Extranjera que estará vigente en el período 2018-2019, donde ha incluido 525 proyectos por un monto estimado de 11.609 millones de dólares.


Según destacó en la presentación del nuevo documento Rodrigo Malmierca, ministro del Comercio Exterior y la Inversión Extranjera, en esta oportunidad se incorporan 168 nuevos proyectos vinculados a la ganadería, las industrias alimentaria, ligera y sideromecánica, así como la química y la minería y se ratifica el turismo como la mayor fuente de oportunidades con 187 proyectos dentro de la cartera.

Al intervenir en la jornada más esperada del Tercer Foro de Inversiones de la Feria Internacional de La Habana, FIHAV 2018, el ministro explicó que en la cartera actualizada ya no están los 104 proyectos de la versión anterior que ya se han concretado, han cambiado su alcance o se encuentran en negociación y además se adecúan los montos de inversión de 13 proyectos.

Rodrigo Malmierca Díaz destacó que estas iniciativas están diseminadas por todo el país y de ellas, 45 se encuentran en la Zona Especial de Desarrollo Mariel (ZEDM).

Cuba continúa invirtiendo en el desarrollo de los puertos y aeropuertos y presta especial atención a la infraestructura ferroviaria, según Malmierca

40 nuevos negocios en un año, con 1.500 M $

Desde octubre del año pasado hasta este mismo mes del 2018 se han autorizado 40 nuevos negocios, por un monto de inversión superior a 1.500 millones de dólares, 35 de los cuales ya avanzan en sus procesos inversionistas. Además, se han aprobado siete prórrogas y reinversiones valoradas en 100 millones de dólares.

Desde que se emitió la Ley No.118 de la Inversión Extranjera, en 2014, se han logrado 21 reinversiones, 41 negocios en la ZEDM y otros 134 fuera de esa área, para un total de 5.500 millones de dólares pactados con compañías de 28 países. Malmierca Díaz agregó que hoy se han modificado algunas normas complementarias que acortan los procesos de evaluación de los inversores y que se trabaja en la creación de una Ventanilla Única de la Inversión Extranjera que estará en funcionamiento a mediados del próximo año.

Actualmente están en fase avanzada de negociación más de 30 proyectos (energía, industrias, construcción, minería, agroalimentario y biofarmacéutico), por un monto que supera los 1.500 millones de dólares.

Aunque aún está por debajo de los niveles deseados, la inversión extranjera directa crece en Cuba, valoró Malmierca.

“Estamos comprometidos a apoyar a todos los interesados en la concreción de nuevos negocios. Para ello, contamos con una nueva cartera, más diversa en su composición por actividades y sectores” subrayó el ministro.

"Hidangan Western Mexico - Texas"

Terdapat satu kedai makan atau restoran di Sijangkang, Telok panglima Garang yang berkonsepkan 'western food' iaitu makanan barat.


Review Roadhouse Restaurant Sijangkang
Review Roadhouse Restaurant Sijangkang
Tidak jauh sebenarnya dengan jarak sebuah lagi restoran berkonsepkan makanan barat seperti hidangan meatball dan pelbagai grill ini.


Tidaklah besar mana restoran ini namun tidakkah ia satu persaingan yang terlalu dekat dengan pesaingnya.

Restoran ini yakin untuk bersaing dengan pesaing makanan barat yang tidak begitu jauh jaraknya, mungkin boleh terbau masing-masing hidangan ketika dibakar, kerana konsep yang berlainan.

Konsep Makanan Texas - Mexico 

Restoran yang betul-betul dipisahkan oleh kaki lima jalan raya Klang - Banting ini meletakkan tema makanan 'Tex-Mex' dalam hidangan mereka. Tex-Mex, dua istilah sebenarnya, Texas dan Mexico.

Apabila menyebut makanan barat berasaskan Mexico atau kawasan sekitarnya pasti kita akan tergambar dengan sekilas laluan bayangan di minda dengan lauk dan sayur yang dibalut roti tortilla, atau mungkin nacho dan apalagi terbayangkan kepedasan keju jalapeno mereka.

Itu biasa. Memang konsep ini yang dilakukan oleh restoran ini. 

Roadhouse Restaurant Tex-Mex and Grill Sijangkang

Makanan Mexico bukanlah asing, sedangkan terdapat makanan Mexico pada hidangan di restoran makanan segera, tapi mengapa terdapat Texas, Amerika Syarikat ? Apakah sama dengan Texas Chicken yang merupakan juga restoran makanan  segera.

Apa Itu Hidangan Tex-Mex ?

Mexico dan Texas sebenarnya seperti Besut dengan Kelantan, berbeza geografinya namun sama dari segi budaya, percakapan (mungkin sedikit), apalagi masakan dan makanan mereka. Begitu juga Texas yang merupakan salah satu kawasan Mexico sebenarnya sebelum bersama USA.


Mad Mex Oleh KFC Malaysia
Hidangan Mexico lebih kepada kepedasan, keju pun sudah pedas kalau Mexico, lain dari norma selera masyarakat kulit putih yang mudah terasa pedas.

Lebih pedas sedikit, dan banyak tertumpu kepada makanan berasaskan madu dan keju. Itu adalah pandangan penulis mengenai masakan Tex-Mex ini.

Menu Tex-Mex Roadhouse Restaurant

Untuk lebih dekat mengenali hidangan Tex-Mex ala Roadhouse Restaurant Sijangkang ini pula, penulis memesan dua jenis makanan (untuk isteri sekali), menu berasaskan meatball dan satu lagi ayam panggang.

Untuk menu ayam panggang penulis mencuba ini namanya,

Chicken Grill Hawaian (Honey With Lemon)


Grilled Chicken Honey With lemon
Grilled Chicken Honey With Lemon
Hidangan ini dilengkapi dengan satu portion ayam yang dibakar. Dituang madu di atasnya.
Jejari kentang diletakkan bersama dengan semangkuk coleslaw.

Dari segi rasa ayam, mungkin ayam dibakar dengan api yang besar. Terdapat bahagian kulit yang hangus, agak merencatkan sedikit rasanya kerana terdapat rasa pahit dari terbakarnya kulit ayam.

Meletakkan madu mungkin mengurangkan sedikit kesilapan kecil ini, kesilapan yang menghadirkan rasa pahit sedikit. Madunya tidak begitu manis dan tidak begitu tawar, sedan-sedan sahaja.

Coleslaw, campuran sayuran biasa yang membezakan adalah kuah mayonisnya, rasa masam yang ada mungkin olahan sendiri. Itu rasa kali pertama penulis merasainya.

Sebagai penambah rasa disediakan sos yang seakan sos segera yang ada di pasaran. Namun, dapat dirasakan kelainanya seumpama diolah sendiri.
Mungkin sos 'signature' pemilik kedai.

Meatball Black Pepper Sauce


Meatball With Black Pepper Sauce
Meatball With Black Pepper Sauce
Sepuluh biji meatball bersaiz sederhana diletakkan mengelilingi satu skop mashed potato. Semua ini dimandikan dengan sos lada hitam bewarna coklat kehitaman.
Itu sahaja tiada selainnya yang dapat ditemui seperti fries atau sebarang tambahan penyeri.

Dihidangkan di atas pinggan bersaiz biasa dan boleh dilihat di mana-mana rumah. Cukup simple.

Apa pula rasanya. Tekstur bebola daging agak kenyal, tiada sebarang kelainan berbanding belian bebola daging yang disejukbeku sekitar pasaraya.

Dari segi kuahnya iaitu black pepper sauce. Penulis mencari kelainan dalam hidangan ini, namun agak gagal kerana penulis pernah menikmati yang lebih baik.

Kuahnya pekat, kepedasan lada hitam masih terasa seumpama baharu sahaja memamah lada hitam yang kecil itu.

Dari aspek tema Texas dan Mexico dalam hidangan ini, penulis gagal menemuinya.

Hiasan Luaran Dalaman Restoran

Mexico Flag Theme Table
Mexico Flag Theme Table
Dari segi hiasan dalam kedai, lebih kepada keadaan terbuka. Membolehkan pengunjung menikmati hiruk pikuk laluan Jalan Klang-Banting.

Fasiliti Kemudahan

Kurang bumbung melainkan ke arah belakang menghala ke dapur.

Restoran ini tidaklah sebesar restoran biasa. Mungkin mampu memuatkan dalam 15 orang dalam satu satu masa. Kedatangan yang ramai mungkin memerlukan tuan kedai menyediakan meja dan kerusi tambahan.

Pengcahayaan

Pengcahayaan yang agak malap dengan tipikal suasana romantik dengan lampu kuning malap.

Lebih banyak cahaya dari lampu jalan dan kenderaan lalu lalang sebenarnya.

Dengan tema semestinya Mexico, meja kayu yang diperbuat secara do it yourself di cat dengan warna bendera Mexico.

Cuma beberapa sahaja kelihatan meja dan kerusi ini yang lainnya, bangku dan meja yang agak panjang.

Ulasan Penulis

Makanan

Dari secara keseluruhan makananya, untuk harga yang ditawarkan agak kurang tepat rasionalnya.

Penulis pernah mencuba hidangan yang lebih sedap dengan harga berkenaan. Dengan ayam kulit terbakar, meatball yang kurang 'kaya' dengan rasa dagingnya.

Kuah lada hitam juga gagal untuk diberikan pujian, hanya terdapat rasa pedas lada hitam sahaja.

Dengan nilaian rasa sebegini mungkin harganya agak mahal.

Namun, boleh dipuji adalah olahan coleslaw dan sos merah yang disediakan. Cukup 'signature'nya untuk mereka datang lagi.
Lain dari rasa di tempat lain.

Hiasan pada makanan ? Perlu diperbaiki. kadang-kadang yang mahu makan diluar sebenarnya ingin melihat kelainan masakan yang boleh dibuat dirumah.

Persekitaran Restoran

Tidak pasti pemilik akan membuat renovasi lagi mungkin. Agak terhad sebenarnya untuk pelanggan duduk dan makan. Masih terdapat ruang kosong dihadapan kedai namun tiada sebarang meja dan kerusi dilihat.

Hiasan tema boleh dipuji, memang mengikut tema Tex-Mex, dengan cat warna Mexico itu sendiri dengan beberapa hiasan yang menarik.

Hmm, jika ditanya adakah penulis akan datang mencuba lagi, mungkin penulis akan jadikan 'last resort' jika betul-betul mengidam western food atau satu lagi restoran western food sekitar Sijangkang ini tutup.

Apa-apa pun lain orang lain citarasa, yang ingin mencuba boleh mencubanya sendiri.

          La sombra económica de China se agiganta sobre América Latina      Cache   Translate Page      
La influencia de China en América Latina se ha visto más acrecentada por la deserción de varios países que mantenían relaciones con Taiwán, persiguiendo los capitales de la segunda economía mundial y debido al distanciamiento de EE.UU. con la región bajo el Gobierno de Donald Trump.
 
En la reciente cumbre empresarial China-Latinoamérica de Zhuhai, el vicepresidente del Comité Nacional de la Conferencia Consultiva Política del Pueblo Chino, Liu Xincheng, destacó que el total de las inversiones de empresas chinas en la región ascendió a 387.000 millones de dólares a finales del año pasado.
 
La bandera china flamea como la primera en inversiones en países como Venezuela, Ecuador y Bolivia.
 
La deuda venezolana con China asciende a cerca de 70.000 millones de dólares, producto del aporte de tecnología industrial, equipos de computación, vehículos y hasta construcción de viviendas, que se saldan con la producción petrolera del país.
 
El presidente venezolano, Nicolás Maduro, logró tras su más reciente de muchas visitas a Pekín que se le concediera financiación por 5.000 millones de dólares.
 
Desde 2009 hasta finales de 2016, Ecuador recibió unos 13.706 millones de dólares en inversiones chinas, y como contraprestación las empresas de ese país partían con privilegio en las concesiones.
 
Actualmente, los chinos son los segundos inversores después de Holanda, con 521 millones de dólares.
 
China ocupa el primer puesto en cuanto a préstamos a Bolivia por casi 786 millones de dólares, no obstante, ese país aparece en el octavo lugar de inversiones, que rondan los 8.000 millones de dólares.
 
Brasil suscribió en 1993 una asociación estratégica con China, lo que llevó a que en 2009 se convirtiera en el primer socio comercial brasileño. Hasta 2017 China ha anunciado inversiones en el país suramericano por 123.900 millones de dólares. El recién electo presidente Jair Bolsonaro expresó que quiere aumentar el comercio con la nación asiática.
 
En el caso de México, China es el segundo socio comercial, con un intercambio bilateral de casi 75.000 millones de dólares en 2016, pero en términos de inversión directa en 2017 fue el decimosegundo con 228,1 millones de dólares.
 
La potencia asiática es el tercer destino de las exportaciones de Argentina (6 %), mientras que China es el segundo origen de las importaciones de ese país (18 %). En materia de inversión, los chinos están en el puesto 18 con 674 millones de dólares.
 
Un intercambio de 34.305 millones de dólares en 2017 convierte a China en el primer socio de Chile, aunque en materia de inversión en el país los chinos apenas están llegando a los 2.280 millones de dólares.
 
El país de Xi Jinping ocupa el puesto 28 de inversión en Colombia con solo 32,1 millones de dólares en 2017, lo que significa una caída del 42,4 % con respecto a 2016.
 
En Perú es su principal socio comercial con exportaciones que en 2017 alcanzaron los 11.589 millones de dólares y unas importaciones que superaron los 8.000 millones de dólares.
 
La nación asiática es el primer socio comercial de Uruguay, en 2017 ocupó el primer lugar de destinos de exportación con ventas que -incluyendo zonas francas- alcanzaron los 2.549 millones de dólares. Las exportaciones de Uruguay a China aumentaron 12 % entre 2012 y 2017.
 
Los lazos de China en Latinoamérica se extendieron recientemente a tres países, Panamá, El Salvador y República Dominicana, lo que generó el rechazo de EE.UU. que llegó incluso a llamar a consultas a los embajadores de esas naciones.
 
Panamá, que estableció relaciones con China en junio de 2017, se está beneficiando del hecho de que la potencia es el primer proveedor de la Zona Libre de Colón, y segundo usuario del Canal interoceánico, por detrás de EE.UU.
 
Los panameños importaron en 2017 bienes y servicios por valor de 1.344 millones de dólares y exportaron bienes por 42,6 millones.
 
El Salvador, que estableció relaciones el 20 de agosto en detrimento de los taiwaneses, tiene un activo intercambio, ya que las exportaciones del país centroamericano se incrementaron en más del 197 % entre enero y julio de 2018, aún sin tener vínculos oficiales.
 
República Dominicana, que le dijo adiós a Taiwán el 1 de mayo de este año, tiene un intercambio comercial chino-dominicano que ronda los 2.000 millones de dólares.
 
En Costa Rica, país que estableció relaciones con China en 2007, la inversión entre ese año y 2017 fue de solo 38 millones de dólares.
 
Los chinos son los terceros socios comerciales de Cuba, con un intercambio de más de 2.585 millones de dólares en 2016, y de 1.130 millones en los primeros ocho meses de 2017.
 
Nicaragua mantiene todavía relaciones con Taiwán, y en noviembre de 2015 firmó con la isla el Estudio de Impacto Ambiental y Social (EIAS) para la construcción de un canal interoceánico.
 
Honduras, que sigue la misma línea diplomática en cuanto a Taiwán, exporta desde 2017 bienes por 772,2 millones de dólares e importa 71,9 millones de dólares.
 
Los taiwaneses tienen en Guatemala otro enclave de su política exterior en Centroamérica. No obstante, en 2017 el país centroamericano exportó a China un total de 60,9 millones de dólares, mientras que importó 1.970,6 millones de dólares.
 
El único socio taiwanés en Suramérica es Paraguay. No obstante, el Banco Central estima que las inversiones de la zona aduanera diferenciada de la ciudad de Hong Kong llegaron a los 92 millones de dólares.

Election Day is upon us, which means many voters walked, biked or drove to their polling station while others, who took advantage of early or mail-in voting, spent the day like any other Tuesday. Amid all the updates and predictions and polling — and anxiety and Twitter refreshing and over-caffeinated conversations with colleagues — we asked voters like you to share their experience at the polls. Some like Cuban-American Ninfa Riestra Floyd of Lexington, Ky., told us they waited in line for a while. Floyd said it took two hours to vote. "I was blown away by the line snaking around the school," Floyd said. "I talked to many in that line. ... I heard so many great stories about why they were out voting in the midterms." Floyd left the polling place smiling, but "a little sad for my family in Cuba who has never cast a vote in a free election."

DENVER (BRAIN) — Paul Craig, the co-founder and president of Rudy Project North America, is leaving the company to spend more time with his family and pursue several philanthropic interests.

Craig helped launch Rudy Project North America in 1998, spearheading the company's Denver office. The company now sponsors tens of thousands of athletes, teams and organizations and recently won its eighth consecutive helmet count at the Kona Ironman World Championships. 

"All good things come to an end," Craig said. "I look forward to hanging out with my wife and three young kids, scuba diving my bucket list and promoting awareness of several causes I am passionate about. Launching Rudy in the U.S., Canada and Caribbean and seeing it grow over two decades into the premier brand has been about as rewarding as it comes. I want to thank everyone who was integral to Rudy's amazing success along the way and know that the team in place now is ready to take Rudy to the next level."

Brad Shapiro, the company's co-founder and principal, said, "We thank Paul for all his time and energy over the years. Everyone at Rudy wishes him well."

Cuba, North Korea Reaffirm Historic Ties at First Summit in Thirty Years
DPRK state media hails two nations' "special friendship" and "joint struggle" against imperialism

Colin Zwirko
North Korea News 
November 5th, 2018

Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel arrived in Pyongyang on Sunday for the first state visit by a Cuban leader to North Korea in over thirty years, joining the country’s leader Kim Jong Un in condemning the “imperialists’ policy of aggression,” DPRK state media reported on Monday.

Kim greeted Díaz-Canel at Pyongyang International Airport with a ceremonial welcome, which included a surprising backdrop of painted portraits of the two leaders – a first for the Kim Jong Un era.

The meeting represents Kim’s eighth summit with a foreign head of state this year.

The two then held an official meeting, attended an arts performance, and held a dinner banquet, where there were discussions over expanding scientific and economic cooperation and reaffirming historic ties, according to the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).

At a dinner banquet late Sunday, Kim Jong Un reportedly said Díaz-Canel’s visit “marked a watershed in demonstrating the will to carry forward forever the friendship between the two countries.”

Díaz-Canel also echoed recent statements from Kim and elsewhere in DPRK state media alluding to the struggle against the U.S. and others amid ongoing denuclearization negotiations.

Speaking at the banquet, Díaz-Canel “voiced his will to meet all challenges by the hostile forces and to invariably carry forward the traditional friendly and cooperative relations between the two countries.”

An editorial in Sunday’s Rodong Sinmun welcoming the Cuban state visit also prominently featured this idea, saying the two countries “are moving forward shoulder to shoulder in the joint struggle against the imperialists’ policy of aggression and war and for peace and the victory of socialist cause.”

“Today the Cuban people hold higher the banner of anti-imperialist independence and socialism in the face of tough sanctions and pressure by the imperialists under the guidance of Raul Castro Ruz and Miguel Mario Diaz-Canel Bermudez true to the behests of Fidel Castro Ruz,” it added.

U.S. National Security Advisor John Bolton last Friday said the Trump administration was tightening sanctions, closing loopholes, and was poised to impose new designations on dozens of Cuban military and intelligence individuals, describing Havana as being part of a “Troika of Tyranny” alongside Venezuela and Nicaragua.

Cuban state outlet Prensa Latina’s coverage of the DPRK visit also said the country “supports the process of rapprochement and ongoing dialogue on the Korean Peninsula as a way to achieve lasting peace in the region, and opposes the unilateral and arbitrary sanctions against Pyongyang.”

The two also reportedly discussed during talks at the Paekhwawon State Guest House “exchanges in various fields including economy, culture, public health, science and technology to meet common interests,” KCNA reported on Monday.

The two countries enjoy a “special friendship” based on a shared “socialist principle” and a long history of cooperation and friendship, it added.

During the first day of Díaz-Canel’s visit, the Cuban President was treated to crowds of Pyongyang citizens mobilized to line the streets to wave at the passing motorcade on the way into town from the airport – similar to those most recently seen during South Korean President Moon Jae-in’s visit in September.

Kim and Díaz-Canel also attended an arts performance featuring the Samjiyon Orchestra and the reappearance of the Moranbong Electronic Ensemble, where Cuban songs and other odes to socialism were played.

The visit marks the first from a Cuban leader to North Korea since Fidel Castro’s 1986 trip to Pyongyang, and comes almost 60 years after veteran revolutionary Ché Guevara traveled there in 1960.

Díaz-Canel has visited North Korea before, however, having traveled to Pyongyang and met Kim Jong Un in his capacity as Cuban Vice President back in 2015.

No North Korean leader has ever visited Havana.

Díaz-Canel is also set to also meet with President of the Presidium of the Supreme People’s Assembly Kim Yong Nam, according to Cuba’s foreign ministry.

He will depart Pyongyang on Tuesday on his way towards China, Vietnam, and Laos.

but you believe Trump tweets? Fox and Friends? Hannity? Limbaugh? Drudge? Breitridge Analytica? KGB Times? The Washington Post has tracked the lies coming from the White House, and they are unprecedented. Tricky Dick was more honest than Trump. As noted above, Trump discredits everyone because that way he can get away with anything. Hats off for full employment -- let's give Trump credit for that even though the trend is absolutely linear extending back to 2010 and the fact that actual job growth and wage growth lag significantly behind his outlandish campaign promises. On the other hand, the list of misdeeds and whiffed opportunities by Trump and his lieutenants is long. -once Trump bragged about stocks continuing to grow on his watch. Not anymore, the expensive sugar high is already wearing off. After spending $1.5 trillion of taxpayer money to corporations, their stock buybacks and executive bonuses have done nothing to maintain the rate of growth seen from 2009 through January 2018 - GDP growth, a crude macroeconomic measure if ever there was one, i also cited by Trumpanzees as being great. Never mind that growth under Trump's predecessor was consistently positive from 2010 on, with GDP growth peaks that exceeded Trump's in both 2011 and 2015. - Trump campaigned on balancing the budget then signed the biggest deficit budget in history - Trump whined incessantly about trade imbalance on the campaign trail -- and despite all the trade disruption, the trade deficit has actually grown 0.25% since Trump took office. - Trump commanded the ripping apart of immigrant families and detained children without supervision in tent camps but interestingly, the actual number of arrests and deportations has declined. Basically, Trump has driven illegal immigrants further underground, where law enforcement doesn't have the time or resources to unroot them. Instead Trump makes a big production of border harassment. - Trump has offered no immigration reform plan other than taller walls, undoing reasonable bills like DACA that allowed background-checked registered children to finish their educations in the USA - The revolving door of aides spins so fast that not even special agent Ivanka can keep up. - Trump has the audacity to meet Putin behind closed doors with no US aides present - Trump pulls out of international agreements left and right, putting international trade in turmoil and American farmers out of work - Trump erects unilateral tariffs then offers special exemptions for his hand picked favorites, skewing commodity markets and spurring price inflation that hurts American manufacturers and consumers - scandals like Pruitt's corruption, Price and Carson's huge expenses, and so forth are unending - cabinet officials with zero ability are put in charge of departments that need the most reform. end result is that idiots like deVos flounder attempting to push religion instead of recognizing the necessity of division between church and state. - hurricane damage comes again; Trump pretends Puerto Rico isn't part of the US - "Fire and Fury" leads to publicity photos with Trump liking the fat autocrat and .... nothing else happens - After much trade turmoil, NAFTA is rebranded with nothing but minor tinkering that, in a sane environment under a reasonable president, could have been implemented in a month quietly by competent trade negotiators - Syria remains a gaping wound on the planet, Trump avoids discussing it - military budgets continue to be bloated, Trump sent an additional 6162 troops into Afghanistan. American taxpayers maintain troops all over the middle east, Nigeria, holding a few lonely misguided guilty-until-proven-innocent muslims in Cuba, and sabre rattling elsewhere - Trump directly contradicts his staff repeatedly. - climate accords and TTP are proceeding without the USA involved to make meaningful amendments for the benefit of future Americans, essentially putting America at a disadvantage for future deals in these blocs - Trump has gone out of his way to insult former allies and piss all over the accomplishments of multinational organizations including NATO, the UN, and others. - Trump kissed the hem of Saudi dictator's robes, and being an oil addict, Trump has done nothing whatsoever to aid justice in response to what appears to be an international murder at the hands of Saudi officials - while tech giants play whack a mole with russian sponsored trolls, Mueller works to root out illegal behavior linked to the White House. Trumpanzees cover their eyes and yell, "nothing to see! nothing to see here!" while Trump does everything possible short of firing Mueller directly to derail the "witchhunt" that keeps finding witches. - with no plan for increasing inexpensive preventative healthcare for all Americans, the US is flooded with opiods, with death from cheap synthetic crap like Chinese fentanol pushing up death rates 27% in the last year. Trump does nothing. - Trump undermines American business with continued rhetoric based in isolationism. https://www.economist.com/graphic-detail/2018/11/06/tracking-america-in-the-age-of-trump Of course dumbocrats have no answers to the ills that plague the nation, but when the current president spends all of 2018 tweeting, TV watching, and campaigning rather than solving problems, then he should be graded on those results. Like Apple, America is coasting on past accomplishments. It is time for both entities to chart a better direction and take on the hard work of improving how we do things. I fail to see how Trump or Cook have been up to the tasks.

From: Enrique Artalejo 
Para los que le quede alguna duda de que Obama, además de musulmán, es marxista, aquí sus declaraciones.  Los Progresistas o sea los marxistas del Partido Demócrata…. harán que "las vidas sean mejores" para los no estadounidenses.

Obama insta a los votantes de Florida a elegir a demócratas que harán que "las vidas sean mejores" para los no estadounidenses

El ex presidente Barack Obama dijo que los demócratas de la Florida deben usar sus votos para mejorar la vida del pueblo de Cuba.
Obama habló en un mitin en Miami, donde cerró la candidatura del demócrata Andrew Gillum, quien se postula para gobernador contra el republicano Ron DeSantis. Dijo que Gillum y el senador Bill Nelson, un demócrata que busca un cuarto mandato en la elección del martes, tienen el enfoque correcto a favor de Cuba.
"Necesitamos volver a la política que es para los cubanos, mejorar sus vidas", dijo Obama. "Eso es cambio".
Obama visitó Cuba en 2016 como parte de su política de normalizar las relaciones con Cuba. El presidente Donald Trump ha revertido esa política. El jueves, el gobierno de Trump anunció que ampliaría las sanciones contra Cuba, lo que provocó una protesta del gobierno cubano. Trump estaba "duplicando" la "obsoleta política de Cuba" de la era de la Guerra Fría.
"Todo lo que hace es lastimar a las familias y los empresarios que están tratando de abrir la economía cubana", dijo Obama.
