On the night of October 26, most Sri Lankans were taken by surprise when President Maithripala Sirisena named his former leader and later political foe Mahinda Rajapakse as Prime Minister. Within minutes, celebratory firecrackers were lit across the country, as Rajapakse is still widely popular, especially among the Sinhalese majority, for having brought peace to a nation rocked by a 30-year civil war.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Theo nguồn tin từ đặc phái viên TTXVN, Thủ tướng Nguyễn Xuân Phúc vừa có cuộc gặp với lãnh đạo tối cao của Chính quyền Bắc Kinh ông Tập Cận Bình nhân chuyến tham dự hội chợ Nhập khẩu quốc tế Trung Quốc CIIE 2018 hôm 4/11.
Tại đây, Thủ tướng đánh giá cao các sáng kiến của Trung Quốc đang “đóng góp cho hòa bình, ổn định và thịnh vượng ở khu vực và trên thế giới”, nguồn tin cho biết.
Đồng thời, ông hoan nghênh sáng kiến “Vành đai và Con đường” của Trung Quốc trong việc thúc đẩy hợp tác cùng có lợi và hỗ trợ các nước đang phát triển trong xây dựng kết cấu hạ tầng.
Bên cạnh đó, Thủ tướng ủng hộ việc kết nối sáng kiến “Vành đai và Con đường” với khuôn khổ hợp tác “Hai hành lang, một vành đai kinh tế Việt – Trung” tại Việt Nam. (1)
Thủ tướng Nguyễn Xuân Phúc khẳng định Việt Nam ủng hộ cơ chế hợp tác Lan Thương – Mekong (2) gắn với khuôn khổ hợp tác tiểu vùng sông Mekong mở rộng (GMS). (3)
Bên cạnh đánh giá cao các sáng kiến và cơ chế hợp tác vùng của Trung Quốc, Thủ tướng nhấn mạnh luôn coi trọng phát triển quan hệ bền vững với Trung Quốc và xem đó là một trong những ưu tiên hàng đầu trong chính sách đối ngoại của Việt Nam, theo nguồn tin TTXVN.Bề vấn đề biển Đông, Thủ tướng tiếp tục hoan nghênh những “kết quả tích cực” đạt được trong đàm phán về bộ Quy tắc ứng xử ở Biển Đông giữa ASEAN và Trung Quốc vừa qua. Đồng thời ông kêu gọi hai bên tôn trọng lợi ích chính đáng, giải quyết tranh chấp bằng biện pháp hòa bình, phù hợp với luật pháp quốc tế.
Trước đó trong buổi tọa đàm với các tập đoàn, doanh nghiệp Trung Quốc, người đứng đầu Chính phủ Việt Nam cũng bày tỏ hoan nghênh các doanh nghiệp Trung Quốc đầu tư vào Việt Nam, và khẳng định Chính phủ sẽ tạo mọi điều kiện thuận lợi để các nhà đầu tư Trung Quốc đầu tư thành công tại Việt Nam.
Trong khi đó, cùng với xu hướng quốc tế mà phát khởi đầu tiên là Mỹ đang xem xét lại các thỏa thuận hợp tác thương mại với ĐCSTQ, nhiều quốc gia mới nổi như Malaysia, Úc, Myanmar, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Nepal… sau khi nếm vị đắng từ các khoản tín dụng cho vay dễ dãi của Trung Quốc – thường gắn liền với quyền tiếp quản dự án cảng biển, đất đai khu vực dự án hay quyền khai thác tài nguyên thiên nhiên các quốc gia đi vay – đã và đang lần lượt hủy bỏ dự án hợp tác với Trung Quốc.
Chẳng hạn, tân thủ tướng Malaysia Mahathir mới đây đã công khai hủy 3 dự án do Trung Quốc tài trợ với tổng trị giá 22 tỷ USD. Trước đó vào tháng Mười Một năm ngoái, chỉ trong vài tuần, cả Pakistan, Nepal và Myanmar đã đồng loạt hủy bỏ dự án thủy điện lớn của các công ty Trung Quốc. Hay như một đồng minh thân cận của Trung Quốc là Philippines – Tổng thống Duterte của quốc gia này mới đây cũng đã không dưới một lần lên án ĐCSTQ, kêu gọi Bắc Kinh “tái định hình” và “hành động ôn hòa” về vấn đề Biển Đông đang gây tranh cãi.
Nếu như sáng kiến “Vành đai và con đường” của Trung Quốc – gieo rắc nỗi ám ảnh và đẩy nhiều quốc gia lún sâu vào bẫy nợ của Bắc Kinh – đã được các nước nhận diện và có biện pháp đề phòng, thì đâu đó vẫn còn một số quốc gia sẵn sàng tạo mọi điều kiện thuận lợi đảm bảo cho kế hoạch của Trung Quốc thành công, ít nhất là tại Việt Nam.
Chú thích:
(1) Hợp tác phát triển hai hành lang một vành đai kinh tế Việt Nam – Trung Quốc bao gồm hành lang kinh tế Côn Minh – Lào Cai – Hà Nội – Hải Phòng, hành lang kinh tế Nam Ninh – Lạng Sơn – Hà Nội – Hải Phòng, và vành đai kinh tế Vịnh Bắc Bộ đã được lãnh đạo cao cấp hai nước thỏa thuận xây dựng.
(2) Cơ chế hợp tác Lan Thương – Mekong (LMC) nhằm thúc đẩy kết nối giữa Trung Quốc với 5 nước Mekong (Campuchia, Lào, Myanmar, Thái Lan và Việt Nam). Kết thúc hội nghị thượng đỉnh LMC lần thứ 2, nhà lãnh đạo các nước đã đồng ý xem xét một loạt các dự án do Trung Quốc tài trợ. Tổng các khoản vay và trợ cấp mà Trung Quốc cam kết là gần 12 tỷ USD cho cho 5 nước Mekong.
(3) Tiểu vùng sông Mekong mở rộng (GMS) là khu vực rộng lớn với số dân 340 triệu người, bao gồm 5 quốc gia Mekong và hai tỉnh Vân Nam, Quảng Tây của Trung Quốc, do Ngân hàng Phát triển châu Á (ADB) khởi xướng. Đây là sự mở rộng của Tiểu vùng sông Mekong vốn không có các tỉnh của Trung Quốc. Hiện, GMS có hơn 222 dự án với trị giá 65 tỷ USD đã được thông qua.

          The push is on to adopt rules for a maximum residual level for a range of benign compounds in food products. That progress will open up new ways to control greenhouse gasses from agriculture      Cache   Translate Page      

By Guy Trafford

With the impetus growing to reduce greenhouse gases becoming stronger the focus to date has been on methane. However, nitrous oxide (N2O) is arguably the greater problem with its 114 year life in the atmosphere which converts to approximately 300 times the heating capacity of CO2.

Agriculture, again, is the focus of where most is produced with about 30% of livestock emissions’ being in the form of N2O. For the uninitiated to where it comes from; it is a by-product of animals’ urination and nitrogen applications. With GHG’s being one of if not the major externality of livestock farming, a close second is the negative impact intensive livestock farming can have on water quality. The root cause of this in most cases is the same as for N2O, that is livestock urination. This leads to what is available to mitigate these effects.

Through the media a lot has been made about how few options farmers have apart from reducing livestock numbers, planning trees or both. Fortunately, Fed Farmers have longer memories and have recently revived the conversations around dicyandiamide (DCD) or EcoN as the Ravensdown version of the product was called.

Its initial use was to improve the efficiency of nitrogen usage by reducing the ability of the conversion of ammonium to nitrate during the process of nitrification which then holds the product in the soil longer and helps to enable plants to uptake the nitrogen improving growth and, in the process, reducing N leaching into waterways. A fortunate side effect of this process is the reduction of the volitisation of ammonia to N2O.

The success of the product(s) depended upon soil types and climate (mainly) but reductions in both leaching and the conversion to GHGs ranged from 30% - 70% in very successful cases. Uptake, mainly from the dairy fraternity, was limited mainly by cost as the economic benefits were only measurable on the improved pasture growth and it was reliant upon the farmers ‘good will’ to gain benefits for the externalities.

Unfortunately, in 2013 traces of DCD were detected in milk. It was in very small amounts and certainly wasn’t considered to be a threat to human health. However, in the process of developing the product no codex of minimum allowable levels had ever been applied for and so no matter what amounts were detected it technically meant a breach of standards. Initially Sri lanka, who have elements who have been keen to keep New Zealand dairy products out and not competing with their own industry but also followed by China and others rapidly banned the importation of dairy products containing traces of DCDs so effectively Fonterra were forced to ban the use of DCD products on their supplier farms.

A process to create a codex was begun and the time period of five years to get one was mooted, also with the drive to more ’natural’ products the consumers appetite for dairy products known to contain something that could be considered suspicious at the time it was felt that that was the last to be seen of DCD’s.

Roll on five years to the present. The scene has change considerably. Climate change is no longer debatable, and it is likely that costs will be applied to livestock emissions as well farmers are under all sorts of pressure to reduce their impact upon water ways. Back to Fed Farmers. In a statement last week they have highlighted that Ravensdown says there’s now a chance that world regulatory authorities, including NZ’s Ministry for Primary Industries, might ratify an umbrella codex agreement mid-2019 to set rules for a maximum residual level for a range of benign compounds in food products. 

If that happens, Eco-N could be back in use here during autumn to winter 2020 (DCD is a winter-active compound, and that’s the season when the impact of nitrate leaching is greatest). It appears that MPI is receptive to the reinstatement of the product and shouldn’t hamper the progress.

Another plus in the future use is that apparently the product has gone beyond the restricted patent stage and so more companies will be able to sell variations of it presumably reducing cost.

With the current climate around externalities farmer uptake should be a lot greater than it was back in 2013 and it is likely that other farming systems may be in a position to use also. Despite not being available in New Zealand it is still used by farmers in the US. To those who are put off by the thought of chemical elements being found in milk, they need to consider what is already floating around in the food chain. Microplastics are found throughout now as are heavy metals plus other chemicals such as DDT. So, in the context of these pollutants DCDs, at least until proved otherwise, appears quite innocuous. With the oncoming train of costs and regulations coming at farmers they are going to need a pretty complete tool box to deal with the future and DCDs may be a valuable addition.

Markets

SHEEP

Store lambs’ prices on average have held or slightly lifted however, in reality there are two markets operating, ‘last season’s lambs’ and ‘new season’s lambs. With the new season lambs providing the overall lift. In the ‘prime pens’ lamb prices held with tops getting near the $200 mark again. However, the supply must be drawing to a close. Generally, when it is this late in the season a lot of the “old seasons’ lambs come from merino influenced late lambing flocks. Some of the processing companies are now advertising a clear differential between ‘last’ and ‘new’ lambs with the schedule being up to 30c per better for the ‘new’. Ewe prices had a lift this week as ‘dry’ ewes carrying more weight are coming forward and also pushing the $200 mark for tops.

WOOL

No wool sales last week to report on so hopefully this week’s sale, which is being conducted at the Christchurch A&P show, will see an improvement after the declines of the previous weeks.

BEEF

Perhaps it has been the recent rain, but cattle prices took a small lift in the store pens. It was good to see that the schedule stopped the decline observed to previous few weeks and monitored processors have held their prices.

DAIRY

Westland have lowered their price expectations to fall more into line with the other companies for the 2018-19 season to $6.10 - $6.50 (previously $6.50 - $6.90). Still positive about their future, one of the ironies mentioned was that high production levels are meaning more milk is having to be diverted into the lower value bulk products to get rid of some volume. The biggest influencer on the prices chart this week, in relation to dairy products, has the the increasing value of Kiwi dollar against the US dollar which is starting to look like it might give .67 cents a nudge. With the bobby calf kill now over it will be interesting to see how the numbers pan out as a result of the ‘complications’ created by M.Bovis.

DEER

Another small decline in the venison schedule which corresponds with the end of the chilled meat program and start of the sea freight shipments next week.

          VÀNH ĐAI - CON ĐƯỜNG : ĐIỀU GÌ XẢY RA KHI CON NỢ DÂN CHỦ HƠN CHỦ NỢ ? (Nguyễn Quốc Tấn Trung)       Cache   Translate Page      



Posted on 02/11/2018

Sáng kiến Vành đai và Con đường (Belt and Road Initiative – BRI) là một dự án đầu tư khổng lồ được Chủ tịch Trung Quốc Tập Cận Bình thúc đẩy, với kỳ vọng sẽ tạo dựng được quyền lực mềm cho quốc gia này. Từ cuối những năm 2013, Bắc Kinh đã rót gần 700 tỷ USD ngân sách vào hơn 60 quốc gia, mà đại đa số trong số đó là những dự án hạ tầng khổng lồ cùng những khoản vay hậu hĩnh ban đầu cho đến khi các chính phủ nhận ra họ đều đang “há miệng mắc quai”. Mục tiêu, cuối cùng, có vẻ chỉ là kéo những quốc gia này lại gần Bắc Kinh hơn trong khi vẫn gia tăng được quyền lực mềm Trung Hoa trên thế giới.

Nhưng điều bất ngờ là Trung Quốc hiện đang phải đối mặt với những phản ứng tiêu cực từ cả trong và ngoài nước đối với đại dự án Vành đai – Con đường. Một bộ phận người Trung Quốc bắt đầu phàn nàn rằng nó chỉ phí phạm tiền của quốc gia. Mặt khác, trên trường quốc tế, các yếu tố địa chính trị khiến càng ngày càng nhiều quốc gia dè chừng ảnh hưởng ngày càng gia tăng của Trung Quốc.

Khác với những chủ nợ phương Tây – vốn yêu cầu bên vay phải đáp ứng những tiêu chuẩn nghiêm ngặt về kiểm soát tham nhũng, về bảo vệ nhân quyền hay kiểm soát thu chi ngân sách để hướng tới tài chính bền vững – Trung Quốc hầu như không đòi hỏi gì cả. Chính sách đầu tư “không ràng buộc” này châm thêm dầu vào ngọn lửa tham nhũng ở nhiều quốc gia, trong khi cho phép những chính phủ này vung tay quá trán với những khoản nợ họ biết rằng mình không thể trả.

Công dân của rất nhiều quốc gia nhận nợ vay đang thể hiện sự tức giận của mình đối với Trung Quốc bằng nhiều cách, và có thể cảm nhận được cơn giận dữ đó trong các cuộc bầu cử gần đây. Thay vì mở rộng quyền lực mềm Trung Quốc, Vành đai và Con đường dường như đang làm những điều hoàn toàn ngược lại.

Cuộc bầu cử ở Malaysia tháng 5 năm 2018 là một minh chứng không thể rõ ràng hơn về sự hoài nghi nói chung dành cho quyền lực mềm Trung Quốc. Cựu Thủ tướng Mahathir Mohamad chiến thắng trước đương kiêm Thủ tướng Najib Razak với một chiến dịch phản đối một cách trực diện ảnh hưởng của Trung Quốc trên quốc gia này. Ông Mahathir khẳng định Thủ tướng Najib đang cố tình chấp thuận những dự án hạ tầng đắt đỏ thuộc BRI để tạo nên một ảo giác tăng trưởng cho dân chúng, trong khi tiếp tục tham ô ngân sách quốc gia vào túi riêng của mình. Nói là làm, ngay sau khi nhậm chức, ông Mahathir đã hủy bỏ thỏa thuận đối với hai dự án lớn nhất của Trung Quốc ở Malaysia – với 20 tỷ USD cho hệ thống đường sắt và 2,3 tỷ USD cho đường ống dẫn dầu, khí – với lý do đất nước ông không có khả năng để trả khoản nợ này trong tương lai.

Thủ tướng Malaysia Mahathir Mohamad (trái) tỏ ra rất cứng rắn với các dự án Vành đai – Con đường của Trung Quốc. Ảnh: The Star.

Nhưng câu chuyện không dừng lại ở đó. Pakistan đã nhận hơn 62 tỷ USD từ Trung Quốc cho các dự án tương tự như đường cao tốc, đường sắt và cảng Gwadar. Quốc gia này thường xuyên được các ngân hàng Trung Quốc bảo lãnh và giải cứu. Sự hào phóng chính trị này dẫn đến bong bóng nợ công Pakistan đạt tới mức gần như không thể kiểm soát, cùng sự trỗi dậy của các nhóm chống BRI nói riêng và chống Trung Quốc nói chung.

Tháng 7 năm nay, chính phủ mới của Thủ tướng Imran Khan, dù không theo phương pháp quyết liệt như của Malaysia, cũng buộc phải cân nhắc lại toàn bộ các phương án trả nợ vay cho Bắc Kinh, bao gồm cả khả năng đơn phương dừng hoặc kéo dài kỳ hạn trả nợ. Và cũng trớ trêu là vì mắc nợ Trung Quốc mà nay Pakistan đang lên kế hoạch đàm phán với Tổ chức Tiền tệ Quốc tế nhằm cấp cứu thanh khoản cho nước này khỏi các khoản nợ vay Trung Quốc, điều mà chính Thủ tướng Khan ban đầu cũng không muốn làm.

Quốc đảo Maldives đến gần đây cũng đang chịu nhiều áp lực phải kiểm tra, giám sát lại các dự án BRI. Chỉ trong tháng 9 vừa qua, cử tri đã loại vị tổng thống võ biền Abdulla Yameen và chọn nhà cải cách dân chủ Ibrahim Solih. Chiến thắng này tạo cơ hội cho các nhóm chuyên gia đánh giá lại chính sách vay nợ Trung Quốc một cách không kiểm soát dưới thời cựu Tổng thống Yameen, vốn được cho là sẽ dẫn đến tham nhũng và lệ thuộc vào Trung Quốc. Tân Tổng thống Solih đã thể hiện rõ quan điểm rằng ông sẽ phải thẩm tra lại tất cả những dự án BRI hiện hành. Dù có vẻ là Maldives không thể cắt đứt những thoả thuận lớn trị giá tới 1,3 tỷ USD với Trung Quốc, trong đó có cả công trình cầu nối sân bay Maldives đến thủ đô nước này, Tổng thống Solih rõ ràng đang đánh giá lại mối quan hệ của nước ông với Bắc Kinh.

Ngay cả khi vài chính phủ may mắn sống sót qua khỏi làn sóng “bài BRI” trong các cuộc bầu cử quốc gia cũng trở nên lo ngại hơn với các khoản vay từ Trung Quốc.

Tháng 8 vừa qua, Kenya bắt đầu chiến dịch bố ráp tham nhũng liên quan đến các dự án BRIs do nhà thầu Trung Quốc xây dựng kết nối hai tỉnh Nairobi và Mombasa. Nhiều quan chức địa phương bị bắt. Một số quốc gia khác, như Uganda hay Zambia, cũng bắt đầu lo lắng.

Vào tháng 6, một học giả người Zambia, ông Trevor Simumba, đã lên tiếng cảnh báo chính phủ nước ông rằng các khoản vay mà Zambia nhận từ Trung Quốc đang dần trở nên không bền vững, mặt khác có quá nhiều điều khoản không rõ ràng, thiếu minh bạch liên quan đến những vấn đề mấu chốt trong hợp đồng vay nợ. Chính phủ Uganda thì bị chỉ trích vì vay nợ Trung Quốc nhưng lại phải thuê lại các công ty Trung Quốc thực hiện dự án với mức vượt quá giá thị trường, trong khi lợi ích mà họ được nhận từ những dự án này thì không hiện hữu một cách rõ ràng.

Chuyện gì đã xảy ra?

Làm sao vụ đầu tư đắt giá để giành được quyền lực mềm của Trung Quốc lại khiến Trung Quốc lạc lõng với chính những quốc gia mà Vành đai và Con đường giúp đỡ?

Một lý do rõ ràng nhất là các quốc gia đã trở nên thông minh hơn khi tiếp cận các điều khoản đính kèm trong BRI.

Ở buổi bình minh của BRI, nhiều người tin rằng tiền từ Trung Quốc sẽ là miễn phí, hoặc chí ít là có phí thấp nhất. Nhưng thực tế, những khoản vay này có giá cao hơn rất nhiều so với các khoản vay phát triển từ các tổ chức thế giới như Ngân hàng Thế giới. Đối với Pakistan, mức lãi suất quốc gia chính thức được ngân hàng trung ương nước này xác định chỉ khoảng 5%, trong khi nhiều khoản vay Trung Quốc bị bắt buộc bảo đảm lãi suất không dưới 30%.

Nhiều quốc nằm trong Vành đai và Con đường cũng ngờ vực cách hành xử của Trung Quốc như là một đối tác đầu tư. Năm 2017, Sri Lanka đã chấp thuận cho Trung Quốc thuê 99 năm một trong những cảng đáng giá nhất của mình để tránh vi phạm các khoản nợ thuộc BRI. Từ đó, nhiều quốc gia bắt đầu lo lắng về viễn cảnh không trả được nợ cho Bắc Kinh, cũng như lo ngại về tính thiếu chuyên nghiệp của chính phủ nước sở tại khi thực hiện đánh giá tác động và sự áp đặt một chiều hầu hết những hợp đồng vay phải đính kèm với việc sử dụng nhà thầu Trung Quốc, với bất lợi bị đẩy hết cho quốc gia nhận khoản vay.

Một điểm yếu chí tử khác của các khoản vay BRI, cũng chính là ưu điểm khiến BRI “cháy hàng” trước đó: Bắc Kinh không đòi hỏi hay yêu cầu cải cách, minh bạch gì từ quốc gia nước nhận.

Các quốc gia đang phát triển thường khó vay tiền từ các định chế tài chính phương Tây như Tổ chức Tiền tệ Quốc tế (IMF), Ngân hàng Thế giới (WB), hay kể cả Cơ quan Phát triển Quốc tế Hoa Kỳ (USAID). Các điều khoản đảm bảo như phát triển bền vững, báo cáo tác động môi trường và cơ chế kiểm soát tham nhũng có thể khiến việc nhận hỗ trợ tài chính rất khó khăn, nhưng nó cũng làm giảm rủi ro thất bại cho các dự án này.

Ngược lại, việc Trung Quốc từ bỏ những hàng rào kiểm soát nói trên khiến đồng tiền Trung Quốc tại những quốc gia tiếp nhận lại dẫn đến tham nhũng, độc tài, nợ công, lạm phát, các dự án thiếu hiệu quả kinh tế và không khả thi, v.v.

Công dân ở nhiều quốc gia đang xem Bắc Kinh vừa là thủ phạm, vừa là người hưởng lợi từ tình trạng tham nhũng tại quốc gia họ. Tại những quốc gia có ít nhất một số cơ chế kiểm soát dân chủ như Kenya, Malaysia, Pakistan và Zambia, cử tri đang bắt các lãnh đạo của họ phải chịu trách nhiệm. Các chính phủ may mắn tại vị thì bắt đầu cẩn trọng hơn với các dự án BRI, kiểm tra và đánh giá các dự án, chi phí, mức tổng nợ kỹ càng hơn.

Nếu chủ nợ Trung Quốc muốn không đòi hỏi quốc gia vay nợ phải có trách nhiệm giải trình, cử tri của những quốc gia đó đang làm việc này thay cho họ.

Học cách yêu dân chủ

Những phản ứng quốc tế không phải là vấn đề duy nhất mà Vành đai – Con đường phải đối mặt. Ngay bên trong Trung Quốc, càng ngày càng nhiều người phàn nàn về kiểu chi tiền hào phóng dành cho các quốc gia thuộc nhóm Vành đai và Con đường. Khi mà Bắc Kinh tiếp tục chào hàng và quảng bá việc chính phủ đang chi tiêu hàng tỷ USD ở nước ngoài, người dân Trung Quốc đang bắt đầu tự hỏi vì sao số tiền này không được sử dụng để giải quyết các vấn đề trong nước như chăm sóc sức khỏe cộng đồng, nhà ở hay giáo dục.

Thật ra, các ngân hàng Trung Quốc đang phải chạy vạy khắp nơi để vay tiền USD cho các dự án BRI, họ không sử dụng dự trữ ngoại tệ quốc gia cho các hoạt động này. Nhưng không thể trách giới phê bình Trung Quốc không hiểu được những yếu tố phức tạp của thị trường vốn toàn cầu khi mà chính phủ nước này cứ tiếp tục đăng tải những thông tin hào nhoáng về các khoản đầu tư ra nước ngoài như thế.

Giới trí thức, như Giáo sư Xu Xangrun của Đại học Luật Thanh Hoa (Tsinghua) tại Trung Quốc, cũng thể hiện sự dè dặt của mình về cách mà Trung Quốc một mặt thúc đẩy tham vọng chi viện trợ ra nước ngoài, mặt khác đánh đổi việc chi tiêu cho các vấn đề trong nước. Số khác như nhà khoa học chính trị Zheng Yongnian thì cảnh báo lối khoa trương thiếu căn cứ xung quanh các dự án BRI sẽ chỉ khiến nhiều quốc gia tin rằng Trung Quốc đang ôm mộng bá quyền. Nhiều nhà phân tích khác thì chỉ trích việc các quốc gia tiếp nhận vốn không có được những tiêu chuẩn căn bản từ tài chính bền vững cho đến tác động môi trường.

Trong bối cảnh hệ thống truyền thông bị kiểm soát chặt chẽ tại Trung Quốc, nhiều người có thể cho rằng những lời phản đối công khai dành cho chính sách và sáng kiến ngoại giao của Tập Cận Bình thật ra chỉ là Chủ tịch Tập đang tự phê phán chính mình mà thôi. Dù sao chăng nữa, chính sách được dự định tăng cường quyền lực mềm Trung Hoa lại dẫn đến mức độ quan ngại cả trong và ngoài nước chưa từng có cho thấy ông Tập rõ ràng không dự trù trước được việc này.

Dù các lãnh đạo Trung Quốc đang đưa ra nhiều quan điểm nhằm cải thiện cái nhìn của các quốc gia đối tác trong chương trình BRI, không có bằng chứng cho thấy họ đang kiểm soát được thực tế tài chính và chính trị trong làn sóng phản đối Vành đai và Con đường. Việc cho vay bằng đồng USD khiến các quốc gia vay nợ buộc phải kiểm soát và tăng cường thặng dư USD, nhưng rõ ràng không phải quốc gia nào cũng đủ năng lực kiểm soát cán cân ngoại tệ. Hầu hết các dự án của BRI đều là các dự án hạ tầng dài hạn, mất nhiều năm để hoàn thành với nhiều lần các ngân hàng Trung Quốc sẽ phải chuyển nợ, đáo nợ. Nhưng Bắc Kinh đã tỏ rõ thái độ hoặc thu tiền đúng hạn, hoặc sử dụng các biện pháp chế tài như họ đã áp dụng tại Sri Lanka.

Điểm cuối cùng là rất nhiều quốc gia thuộc sáng kiến Vành đai và Con đường có mô hình nhà nước cấp tiến, cho phép công dân biểu đạt sự không hài lòng của mình, dù bằng báo chí hay con đường bầu cử. Không quen với hoạt động giám sát và phê bình dân chủ, Trung Quốc đang gặp rất nhiều khó khăn trong việc chào mời món hàng quyền lực mềm Trung Hoa.

Trong thời kỳ bình minh của Vành đai và Con đường, Bắc Kinh bao giờ cũng xem những luận điểm phê bình và chỉ trích dành cho sáng kiến này là việc phương Tây phủ nhận sự trỗi dậy của Trung Quốc, không hơn không kém. Nhưng cho đến nay, mối quan ngại và sự phản đối không đến từ phương Tây, mà từ các quốc gia Châu Phi và Châu Á, nơi mà chính phủ đang tuyệt vọng tìm cách kiểm soát mức nợ tăng cao cùng với những cơn thịnh nộ của công chúng. Nếu thật sự muốn xuất khẩu “mô hình” Trung Hoa, hay chí ít là đánh bóng tên tuổi của mình trên trường quốc tế, Bắc Kinh sẽ phải học làm quen với dân chủ, dù họ có thích nó hay không.

Morning. Right, that’s enough of the formalities: Ben Foakes is 13 short of an exceptional debut century, and not even the most incorrigible ne’er-do-well would begrudge him that. England will resume on 321 for eight, a score which, depending on whose opinion you agree with, is over-par, under-par, a fine effort, a missed opportunity.

On a normal Galle pitch, England could declare and still have a chance of an innings victory, but the wet weather has made it harder to judge what a good score might be in this match. We know the pitch will deteriorate; we don’t know how much and how quickly it will do so.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

          Everyone comes to power in Pakistan through ‘deal’, says Zardari       Cache   Translate Page      

NAWABSHAH: Everyone comes to power under a “deal” in Pakistan and so did [ousted prime minister] Nawaz Sharif and [Prime Minister] Imran Khan, none of whom know how to get jobs done and how to run the country’s affairs.

This was stated by Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari, who is a former president of Pakistan, while speaking to party workers and supporters at the residence of a party activist, Imdad Hussain Rahu, in Sabu Rahu village near Sakrand on Tuesday.

Disapproving PM Khan’s way of bringing in investments and arranging for bailout packages for the country, Mr Zardari remarked that the “prime minister is begging all around which is not good [for the country’s prestige].

“Our party ruled over the country with available resources,” he said.

Mr Zardari said that Imran Khan proudly made mention of the achievement with regard to bilateral business with China in the latter’s currency but he [PM] did not know that the PPP government had signed such an agreement with six countries, including China. “The other countries include Jordan, Turkey and Sri Lanka,” he claimed.

The former president, currently a member of the National Assembly, noted that the federal government was planning and finding ways to arrest him [in the wake of ongoing investigations into several money-laundering scams]. “But this will add to the popularity I already enjoy,” he remarked, and said he was not afraid of such things as he had already gone through such episodes of tussles with governments in the past.

Mentioning the 18th Constitutional Amendment and Balochistan package as PPP government’s distinctive initiatives, Mr Zardari said that he [as the head of state and the PPP] gave constitutional rights to Balochistan though no one had approached him with such a plan. “We also got provinces autonomy through the 18th Amendment because it was their right,” he added.

Turning to the PPP government in Sindh, Mr Zardari said it had accorded a priority and set its focus on the agriculture sector. Lining of watercourses was done throughout Shaheed Benazirabad district. “Nawabshah was given several packages previously and will be given another special development package,” he announced.

MPAs Haji Ali Hasan Zardari, Ghulam Qadir Chandio, Sardar Khan Mohammed Dahiri, former law minister Ziaul Hassan Lanjar and other PPP leaders were also present.

          Arihan Pictures starts pre-production on Hail Mary      Cache   Translate Page      
Goa-based Savio Rodrigues owned Arihan Pictures in collaboration with South Indian filmmaker R Joseph Kennedy start pre-production work on their ambitious project Hail Mary. Hail Mary is scheduled to have a global release in 2019. Being tight lipped on the film project, Savio Rodrigues, revealed, With Hail Mary particularly we never came up with the idea, the idea kind of found us by divine providence. We believe some stories need to be told because it is in accepting the truth that true enlightenment is experienced. The project is based on real stories of abuse, pain and betrayal but more importantly about the power of faith in ones belief in God. It is a film about survivors in India. Sexual abuse within the Catholic Church is real, Mr Rodrigues said. Kennedy, who has worked with the acclaimed filmmaker Padma Shri Santosh Sivan, has also directed the international documentary drama Men in White - a delicate, absorbing and insightful post-war production; crafted closely from the civil war affected areas in the Northern Province of Sri Lanka. On the project Kennedy said, This is not a commercial film, neither is this an art film. It is a film about the truth. We want our film to be the voice of the survivors. We have a responsibility to the women who have dedicated their life to service in their love for their faith. Hail Mary is coming at a time when the Catholic Church globally is facing a sexual abuse crisis. India too has over the last couple of months seen a #ChurchToo crisis of sexual abuse with accusations levelled on priests and Bishops by women including religious sisters of the Catholic Church.UNI AKM 1306

Dilrook, All political processes are man-made and are not absolutely fool-proof. There are extraordinary circumstances that require extraordinary solutions. Just to follow an existing process allowing the nation to go to dogs is not the solution. The 19th Amendment to the constitution by itself is an aberration in the political process. The way it was brought about to hand over the power to a Colombo elected MP is not democracy! It is true that a majority of idiots whom the nation elected as their representatives most of them sleep deprived raised their hands to pass this amendment. In Jan 2015 people elected by 'popular mandate,' a President and he is the one who is empowered to appoint the Prime Minister. By the same token, there must be a way to remove him from office and that authority too should be with the appointing authority. Let aside everything we have seen how the so-called National Government governed. Although the Bond Scam took place at the end of Feb 2015, it is obvious from how things panned out that the planning for this scam preceded this date by many months. It did not happen by chance or by mistake. In comparison, Greek Bonds and Hedge Fund large losses to the government coffers are simply bad judgment and incompetence and not fraud in my eyes. The current impasse is a crisis in the making by those who are planning another 'color revolution'. For those who entertain such luxury, it is better to look through some of the footage from those countries that went through the experience - Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria etc. People of Sri Lanka do not deserve such destruction and mayhem. They were heavily duped by Western Christian Powers and their local henchmen spending millions of dollars. US spent over US$550 Million to topple the governments in Sri Lanka, Myanmar, and Nigeria. So let us bid our time and wait till all will get a chance to express their democratic suffrage in a coming election. In the meantime, we need an interim administration that will keep the what is left of Sri Lanka intact!
          Comment on Questions to the Foreign Media writing on Sri Lanka by ranjit      Cache   Translate Page      
Western foreign media is writing always full of lies that's why Trump always calls them fake news. Through their lies how many good democratic countries have they destroyed? Many, they cater only to their kind in western countries not others. We should ban these organisations and the NGO'S who supply them with false information like Egypt and some countries have done in the past. When we have traitors to our Motherland like Run-nil,One eyed drunken woman, Gay boys like Mangalaya,One shot,Sagala,Pachaka and the dirty clan what can we expect other than false information? Through the past their job was that, even during the LTTE war. All these past years most of the damage done to our Sovereignty, Economy, Development etc were by the UNP treacherous clique. People in this country should not follow them or believe them anymore because they don't have any new vision for the country. They believe in westernised way of living and try to follow their thinking and do things as per their liking which is not acceptable with the majority of our people. We need a Sinhala Buddhist government which suits for SRI Lanka not a westernised or Indian style government. Our leaders must rule as per the teachings of Lord Buddha and the advise of Maha Sanga if they need to have a good, decent country with kind and loving people. Politicians should learn to serve the people and the country they were born rather than serving themselves and serving our enemies for money. What ever truth or lies in the current situation we as SRI Lankans should concentrate on building our blessed country as one United family. SRI Lanka is our home and we need to protect it with our souls at all costs without go behind party politics or crooked politicians all around. Think wisely before you chose the next leader. To make our country great we need a strong Sinhala leader therefore let's work for it with sincerity.

It is true western media interfere in local affairs. However, there are many crises in the country that are not of their making. The parliament is not convened. We have a PM who has not sat in parliament for a single day! What kind of a joke is this. The PM belongs to the parliament. Ministers are sworn in on an ad-hoc basis over days, weeks and possibly months. What kind of a Cabinet is that? President and the Speaker are at loggerheads. State entities are confused who their real minister is. If the former Cabinet is dissolved, who is in charge of unassigned ministries. We sure have many crises. All those who claim to have 113 seats must show it in parliament, not in the street.

COLOMBO: Sri Lanka’s parliamentary speaker has called the president’s sacking of the prime minister to bring a former leader back to power a non-violent coup d’etat.
Speaker Karu Jayasuriya is a key figure in the political standoff that started on Oct. 26, when President Maithripala Sirisena fired Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe and replaced him with former president Mahinda Rajapaksa.

• Moeen takes four wickets after Foakes completes century

England’s cricketers have not enjoyed such a satisfying day in Asia since the 2012 tour of India. On the first day in Galle their batting was skittish at the start and doubts prevailed whether they had taken proper advantage of winning the toss, but now on the most sun-kissed afternoon of the tour they conjured a first innings lead of 139 by bowling Sri Lanka out for 203. This should allow them to control the game (despite England’s ascendancy only a greenhorn would opt for the future tense here). By the close their lead had been extended by another 38 runs.

Even better, eight of the 10 Sri Lankan wickets fell to the trio of English spin bowlers, who all responded eagerly to their puppeteer, Joe Root. Moeen Ali (four for 66), Adil Rashid (two for 30) and Jack Leach (two for 41) are not yet modern day versions of Bedi, Chandrasekhar and Prasanna, the Indian dream trio of the 70s, but here they performed well enough and everything fell into place against a Sri Lankan side, currently off the pace in their favourite back yard in Galle, where England have never won a Test match. Only Angelo Mathews could post a half-century as England whittled away with a purpose. The bowling was steady, the out-cricket truly outstanding. In the field they were sharp and flawless while Ben Foakes behind the stumps was as polished with the gloves as he had been with the bat.

          ‘US rewarded Sri Lanka’s empty promises’ – Kate Cronin-Furman      Cache   Translate Page      

The United States’ “failure to push Sri Lanka to implement key institutional reforms not only betrayed the victims of past abuses, but it will also create new ones”, writes Kate Cronin-Furman in a piece for Foreign Policy this week.

“US officials who designed and implemented foreign policy on Sri Lanka over the last four years, based on a misguided acceptance of Rajapaksa’s ouster as a full-fledged democratic transition,” she says, adding that there was a “rush to accept limited progress as true change”.


          ‘Tamils condemned to choose between two security regimes’      Cache   Translate Page      

As both Mahinda Rajapaksa and Ranil Wickremesinghe battle for the seat of Sri Lanka’s prime minister, Tamils on the island are “condemned to choose between two security regimes,” writes Kumaravadivel Guruparan in Scroll.in earlier today.

“Every time we can make a difference, we are asked to support the actor that can guarantee, albeit marginally, our existence,” said Guruparan. “The reductionist reading of the Tamil struggle for self-determination, justice and accountability to a mere existentialist struggle will solidify Sinhala Buddhist ethnocracy in Sri Lanka, slowly but surely.”

Speaking on the failure of the Sri Lankan government, led by Maithripalal Sirisena and Ranil WIckremesinghe, to fulfil promises to Tamils over the last three years, Guruparan says the regime “did nothing to reform the security establishment”.

Historia del Mandir
El mandir (templo) - su génesis y crecimiento

Baba era entonces una joven encantadora de diecisiete años. Tres años antes, había declarado: "¡Soy Sai Baba de Shirdi, vengo otra vez para la redención de la humanidad!". A pesar de la declaración reveladora, muchas personas a su alrededor en Puttaparthi se mostraron escépticas acerca de su poder y su misión. Una de esas personas era Lakshmaiah, aunque tenía un profundo amor por el niño divino.

Un día, Baba le dijo a Lakshmaiah, señalando los montículos al sur de la aldea,

El Sai Pravesh (el advenimiento de Sai) transformará esa región en Prasanthi Pradesh(una región de la más alta paz). Allí se levantará una bhavan (mansión)! ¡Lakhs de gente de toda la India, por qué solo la India, de todo el mundo, vendrá y esperará allí a Sai darshan(vista de Sai)!

Lakshmaiah expresó su duda. Baba afirmó:

Tendrás que creerlo cuando tengas que quedarte donde estamos ahora, intentando vislumbrarme, de pie en el porche de esa bhavan .

La bhavan (mansión) de la que habló Baba ese día es el mandir (templo) en Prasanthi Nilayam, la morada sagrada del Señor en la forma humana de Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba. Este mandir es el corazón de millones de personas en todo el mundo. Sri Kasturi, el biógrafo octogenario de Baba, escribe sobre el mandir : "Ha sido escenario de innumerables transformaciones de carácter, revoluciones de creencias, confirmaciones de fe, curación de enfermedades, calma del temperamento, descartes del odio, salvamento de almas y reuniones". de corazones." De hecho, elmandirHoy se erige como el símbolo de la redención del mundo a través de la transformación del hombre. Este mandir es el núcleo de la misión de Sai de Dharmasthapana.

El majestuoso mandir ahora se encuentra mirando hacia el norte en un compuesto de 220 'x 150' y su área de pedestal es un poco más de 7500 pies cuadrados. Es un nilayam (residencia) evolucionado hacia un mandir (templo).

¡La construcción de este edificio a finales de los años cuarenta puede describirse como la primera manifestación de la habilidad de ingeniería de Baba! Baba tenía entonces unos veinte años. Se consideró que el viejo mandir en el pueblo era demasiado pequeño para acomodar a la creciente familia Sai que se reunía alrededor de su joven Maestro. Un gran edificio fue la necesidad de la hora, y se levantó con piedra y mortero. Bhagavan mismo fue el arquitecto e ingeniero de este edificio, el cual se transformó en el más grande en 1974. ¡Además, fue el contador! Baba recuerda incluso ahora con un alegre brillo en sus ojos cómo estaba haciendo el batwada(pagos semanales a los trabajadores), obteniendo las firmas de los afortunados beneficiarios en los vales.

Otros asociados con la construcción del Nilayam son Sakamma (un devoto del distrito de Coorg en Karnataka, que fue fundamental en la construcción del antiguo mandir en la aldea); el Raja de Sandur (una provincia ahora en Karnataka); Tiruvenkatam, un comerciante de Bangalore; y Thirumala Iyengar, ingeniero a cargo de la construcción de la presa de Tungabhadra. Algunos ingenieros curiosos que visitaron el sitio de la construcción de vez en cuando aceptaron las ideas de Baba, porque consideraron que eran mejores que las suyas. Descubrieron que Baba tenía un mayor sentido de perspectiva y una visión estética más fina que la que tenían.

La historia de la construcción del edificio es una cadena de milagros realizada por la gracia de Bhagavan. Lo más asombroso fue el transporte de las enormes vigas para la sala central de oración desde la estación de tren en Penukonda a 16 millas de distancia. Vigas de 40 pies de largo habían venido de Trichinopoly (ahora Tiruchirapalli) a Penukonda en tren. El camino de Penukonda a Bukkapatnam era un camino de la placa del distrito con un arroyo de arena en la séptima milla, y pasaba por algunos pueblos con casas delicadamente construidas (!) Que flanquean el camino estrecho a ambos lados con algunas curvas de ángulo agudo. Había una pista de tres millas, desde Bukkapatnam hasta Puttaparthi con algunas alcantarillas en ruinas y calzadas de bajo nivel y una amplia extensión de la arena del río Chitravathi. Luego estaba la tarea de izar las pesadas vigas en los muros de veinte pies de altura. Por lo tanto, los ingenieros abandonaron toda esperanza de transportar las vigas de Penukonda a Puttaparthi y presentaron ante Baba algunas propuestas alternativas para cubrir el salón de oración. Pero Baba no se arrepintió.

Una buena mañana, el oficial de transporte por carretera del distrito de Anantapur, que era un devoto de Baba, se despertó para encontrar una sorpresa frente a su casa. Era una grúa enorme del sitio de la presa de Tungabhadra, que se había detenido allí y se había negado a seguir adelante. ¡Había golpeado el trabajo! El conductor estaba luchando con el motor en vano. No pudo hacerlo mover. Buscó la ayuda del oficial de transporte por carretera, quien pensó que la grúa fue enviada por Baba (!) Para transportar las vigas de Penukonda a Puttaparthi.

Se acordó que la grúa transportaría las vigas si se reparara. El RTO se apresuró a Puttaparthi y oró a Baba, quien materializó algunos vibhuti(ceniza sagrada) y se lo dio a él. Este vibhuti estaba manchado en el motor y se le pidió al conductor que lo arrancara, y ... ¡la grúa comenzó a moverse! El sorprendido conductor fue felizmente a la estación de tren de Penukonda, levantó las vigas con los brazos gigantes de la grúa y se dirigió hacia Puttaparthi. La vista de este gigante que llevaba las vigas fue una gran sorpresa para los aldeanos, que lo saludaron haciendo fila en las carreteras. La grúa de alguna manera pasó por encima de las alcantarillas, negoció curvas cerradas, se tambaleó sobre el slushe, y sopló su camino hacia la colina Karnatanagapalli. ¡No se movió más allá, tal vez al ver la ancha capa de arena del río Chitravathi!

Baba mismo fue a la grúa, se sentó con el conductor y manejó el volante. Emocionada por el toque del Señor, la grúa se movió felizmente al lugar de trabajo y descargó las vigas.

Prasanthi Nilayam, el sencillo edificio de granito de dos pisos, fue inaugurado el 23 de noviembre de 1950, el vigésimo quinto cumpleaños de Baba. Tenía una sala de oración central flanqueada por habitaciones a ambos lados y pasillos en frente y detrás. Además, había un pequeño pórtico unido a la parte central del corredor en el frente. La altura de la sala de oración estaba dividida en dos pisos para las habitaciones y los corredores que unían las habitaciones a ambos lados.

El Nilayam continuó en su forma original con muy pocas modificaciones hasta 1973, cuando Bhagavan Baba planeó y ejecutó la transformación de la residencia en el modelo. El edificio se extendió en todos los lados y las cúpulas se construyeron en la parte superior del edificio. El exterior de todo el edificio, el pasillo y el pórtico en el frente y el interior de la sala central de oración estaban cubiertos con hermosas y significativas piezas de escultura de tradición india. Estas modificaciones y adiciones cambiaron la apariencia del edificio y le dieron a la estructura una apariencia muy majestuosa y sagrada. Todo esto se completó el 23 de noviembre de 1974, el día en que Baba cumplió cuarenta y ocho años.

En ese día, el Dr. VK Gokak, quien más tarde se convirtió en el primer Vicerrector del Instituto de Aprendizaje Superior Sri Sathya Sai, le preguntó a Bhagavan: "Swami, tus primeros dieciséis años estuvieron llenos de leelas (bromas divinas), el segundo Dieciséis mahimas se manifestaron(milagros), y a los treinta y dos comenzaste a ascender(enseñar). ¿Hay algún rasgo novedoso que marque la finalización de cuarenta y ocho?

Baba dijo: "¡Mira a tu alrededor!". ¡Allí estaba! ¡Prasanthi Nilayam se había convertido en Prasanthi Mandir! La residencia, que albergaba al joven Sai, se había convertido en el templo con Dios instalado en él. Las tres fases —leelas, mahimas y upadesh— se fusionaron en armonía divina para conferir la bendición del darshan (vista) solo.

El Prasanthi Mandir es un testimonio vivo de la vida y el mensaje de Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba. El Mandir habla con elocuencia el mensaje divino de la unidad de la vida, la concordia universal y la armonía a través de sus ángeles esculpidos, humanos y animales, que se deleitan con los ojos en las diversas caras de esta maravilla estética. Los pavos reales y las serpientes, los elefantes y los leones anidados en la fachada delmandir.en un tranquilo éxtasis, transmita un mensaje significativo a aquellos que tienen ojos para ver, oídos para escuchar y corazones para sentir. Estos seres esculpidos en la fachada realzan bellamente el drama de transformación y trascendencia que puede ocurrir si uno se esfuerza sinceramente por sublimarse. Los leones, elefantes, serpientes y pavos reales, rechazados por nosotros como especies subhumanas , se han elevado a una estatura sublime al practicar maitri (amistad), mudita (alegría), karuna (compasión) y upeksha (desprendimiento).

La transformación de lo humano en divino se demuestra a través de las esculturas de pamara(ignorante), deva (ángel) y hamsa (cisne). El pamara , al esforzarse constantemente, se convierte en devata(ángel) y finalmente se transforma en unParamahamsa (un alma realizada) al llevar a la perfección las cuatro virtudes nobles: maitri , mudita ,karuna y upeksha . La hamsa(cisne) estacionado sobre los elefantes, leones, pavos reales y serpientes culmina el drama escultórico de la transformación divina, ya que la hamsa significa Paramahamsa (alma realizada). La fachada, que es la cara del Mandir , expresa la esencia misma del mensaje de Bhagavan.

Otro drama escultórico que desarrolla el Mandir es el drama de la adoración de lo divino. Este tema sublime se despliega a través de las esculturas del subhumano y la creación angélica de Dios perdidamente en la adoración del Señor. Las figuras escultóricas en los mantaps del darshan (refugios construidos para devotos adyacentes al recinto y frente al Mandir ), por ejemplo, un par de nandis (bueyes) que miran con cariño a un Shivalinga (un símbolo de Shiva), un par de leones que protegen el Dharma ChakraLos ángeles alados tocando la flauta, la trompeta y los platillos en éxtasis orante escriben un rico comentario sobre esta adoración divina.

Los elefantes que llevan guirnaldas para venerar elSímbolo de Sarva Dharma (Religión Eterna), las imágenes divinas talladas en las puertas de madera de la sala de oración central y la entrevista, afirman el mismo tema. Las esculturas de un par de cisnes reunidos alrededor de un loto, un par de ciervos que inhalan la fragancia de las flores y un par de pavos reales reunidos nos enseñan las valiosas lecciones de la amistad y la coexistencia. La profusión de flores esculpidas esparcidas por todo el centro del Salón de Oración, en el techo, columnas, arcos, puertas y ventanas, hablan en su propio lenguaje de silencio; El florecimiento del espíritu como consecuencia de la devoción a lo divino.

Los reinos de plantas, aves, bestias y ángeles han sido bellamente presentados para fundamentar el tema de la adoración del Señor. La sala de oración central es una cosa de belleza, alegría y maravilla. Los cinco símbolos religiosos que descienden de arriba a abajo de las paredes a cada lado del altar cantan en silencio pero con dulzura el canto de la unidad de las religiones.

Los retratos de tamaño natural de Shirdi Sai Baba y Sathya Sai Baba brillan con vida y luz, gracias al pintor divino que guió las manos expertas del pintor humano. El retrato de Shirdi Baba, simple y austero, ojos que se funden con compasión tranquila, habla de la Brahmatatva de la encarnación anterior de Bhagavan. El retrato de Sri Sathya Sai Baba, radiante, lleno y hechizantemente hermoso, con los ojos brillando con un alegre brillo, habla de la Vishnutatva del Avatar .

Al final del salón se encuentra la escultura de Sri Krishna cantando la canción celestial ( Bhagavad Gita ) al arjuna cansado de la guerra en el contexto de la batalla de Kurukshetra. Es significativo que en el mismo salón Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba pronunció una serie de discursos sobre el Geeta , exponiendo el significado olvidado y latente de esta canción divina a las personas cansadas de la vida de la era Kali. Durante esos tiempos de la exposición divina de la Geeta , el Krishna esculpido y el Sai Krishna vivo parecían volverse uno, respirando melodías eternamente nuevas.

Igualmente significativa es la escena de los avataresesculpidos que adornan las paredes de la sala, representando el drama, del descenso divino y la gracia divina para la elevación de la humanidad. Es significativo que todos estos avatares hayan levantado las manos en la postura abhaya , otorgando bendiciones a todos aquellos que son puros de corazón.

El techo de la sala de oración está profusamente sembrado de flores esculpidas de todos los tamaños. Las espléndidas arañas que cuelgan de hermosos lotos hacen del edificio una impresionante mezcla de lo antiguo y lo moderno.

Y lo más significativo, por supuesto, es la combinación de colores utilizada dentro y fuera de todo el Mandir . Azul, amarillo y rosa son los colores utilizados, que comunican el mensaje de la armonía de espíritu, intelecto y corazón respectivamente; para azul significa espíritu, amarillo para intelecto y rosa para corazón (amor). La rica armonía de los tres resulta en santhi(paz) y Prasanthi (paz suprema); y ese es realmente el mensaje del mandas de Prasanthi.

Adyacente a la galería de la sala de oración en el lado izquierdo, hay dos salas separadas para entrevistas, celosamente custodiadas por Dwarapalakas talladas en las puertas de madera. En el primer piso (sobre la planta baja) hay un gran pórtico, adornado con puertas plateadas. Durante mucho tiempo, Bhagavan solía dar darshan todos los días desde este pórtico. ¡Cuánto anhelaba la gente con gran expectación que se abrieran las puertas plateadas y que el Señor diera darshan ! Ahora Baba da darshan.desde este pórtico solo una vez al año, en las primeras horas del día de Navidad, aceptando las oraciones y las súplicas de miles de cristianos que le acosan. Durante esa ocasión, el pórtico parece desvanecerse, dejando solo a Baba delante de nosotros, que se une con el amor, el anhelo y la devoción que estos buscadores de la Verdad nutren amorosamente en sus corazones y traen consigo desde los rincones más alejados del mundo. globo.

Coronando el Mandir hay tres cúpulas que contemplan el infinito azul, un símbolo de la eternidad.

En frente del Mandir hay un círculo de vegetación y en medio de la vegetación está el pilar yóguico con una serie de anillos. Estos anillos indican las diferentes etapas de la disciplina yóguica. Este yoga conduce al despliegue del Loto del Corazón, cuyos pétalos se llevan en la parte superior del pilar. Este es el significado preñado del pilar yóguico frente al Mandir. También de igual importancia es el significado más profundo de las tres puertas de la Sala de Oración Mandir. El mismo Bhagavan ha explicado el significado sutil de estas tres puertas:

El primero, el más externo que conduce al compuesto, es la "Puerta de la Oscuridad". Una persona que lo cruza deja atrás la oscuridad, la ignorancia y la inercia. Él ha alimentado el pensamiento santo de venir a la Presencia y el espíritu de oscuridad e ignorancia ha caído detrás de él. ¡Aquellos que están inmersos en la oscuridad, el thamasic , ni siquiera tendrán la curiosidad de entrar! Luego hay una segunda puerta, justo donde comienza el jardín alrededor de Lotus Circle. Allí, uno se siente atraído por la magnificencia del edificio, las luces eléctricas, los candelabros de colores, las macetas colgantes, es decir, el aspecto activo y apasionado, Rajásico , activo y apasionado. A continuación, uno llega a la puerta del Salón de Oración, 'Puerta de la sabiduría', que conduce a los sátvicos (los puros y serenos) a la Morada de la Paz.

Frente a este parche circular solía estar la estatua de Lord Vighneswara sentado en la pose Abhayahasta(mano levantada que confiere bendiciones); y allí, a pocos metros de distancia, un hermoso arco, cuya parte superior contiene dos ángeles alados que llevan el símbolo de Sarva Dharma (Símbolo Eterno). El arco conduce a la puerta de entrada del gopuram .

Los círculos y las puertas se retiraron a mediados de la década de 1990, cuando el área del darshan se amplió enormemente para albergar a más devotos, dado un piso de mármol y un techo bellamente decorado. Ahora, el área de mandir y darshan juntas ocupan un espacio de unos 100 x 100 metros, alrededor de dos campos de fútbol americano colocados uno al lado del otro.

Hablando sobre el significado del gopuram (la puerta principal), el mismo Bhagavan hizo la siguiente declaración de embarazo:

Si te fijas en el significado del gopuram , puedes darte cuenta de lo sagrado, lo misterioso, lo revelador que es su propósito. El gopuram llama a los caminantes que se han perdido y se alejan de la verdad, '¡Oh, mortales! Cegados por la niebla de los apegos físicos y los impulsos autoengrandecidos, vencidos por el miasma de los deseos mundanos, que son fugaces y falsos, me habéis olvidado, la fuente y el sustento de todos ustedes. Mira esta torre de alegría eterna, siempre pura, llena de alegría. Olvidándome, estás revolcándote en el dolor; persigues el espejismo en las arenas del desierto. Ven, ten fe en el Eterno. Lucha fuera de la oscuridad y entra en el reino de la luz, y ven al camino real desanthi (paz). Ese es el camino del Dharma.¡Ven, ven, oh ven! Así, Gopala llama a todos, con la mano levantada, desde lo alto de lasgopuras en cada aldea .

Este es el principio que subyace a la construcción deGopuras . Tales ideales elevados inspiran estas estructuras. Este es el verdadero significado, un significado que se puede experimentar y sentir. La luz en la parte superior del gopuram es el símbolo de la Luz que es el refugio de todos; es el representante de la lámpara interior que no parpadea, encendida en la misma Llama; es la Iluminación Interior, obtenida mediante la fusión en Hari.

En consonancia con lo que Bhagavan Baba ha dicho sobre el significado del gopuram , el gopuram de Prasanthi Nilayam nos invita a todos a encender nuestras lámparas interiores para ver y experimentar la Luz de las Luces, que es Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba.

La génesis y el crecimiento del mandir son tan únicos como el Avatar , cuya morada divina es el Mandir . En los cientos de eones que han pasado, ningún templo se levantó durante los años de vida del Avatar . Los vanaras (monos) en el Tretha-yuga tuvieron la gran fortuna de construir para Sri Rama un puente sobre las aguas del Mahasagar hindú que abarca Bharat (India) y Sri Lanka. En esta era de Kali , los naras. (los humanos) disfrutaron de la única y buena fortuna de construir un templo para su amado Señor Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba. Los devotos llevaron ladrillos, arena y piedra y construyeron esta maravilla estética, por su propia alegría y por el placer de su propio Señor amoroso.

El Prasanthi Mandir es de hecho el Templo Viviente para el Dios Viviente.

          Comment on The ‘CRISIS’ In Sri Lanka – Invented by the Western Media! by Dilrook      Cache   Translate Page      
A new finance minister has been appointed. What has he done to bring down the top crook, recover lost money or punish the offenders through an action from CBSL? Nothing. In fact, they have now stopped talking about the bond fraud! Perpetual Treasuries started dealing in CBSL bonds since 2010. Then CB Governor's sister was in its board as well. Ultimately it is the nation that is deprived. My only concern is the the nation. I have no trust in any politician. They are all the same with very minor differences. All those who claim to have 113 seats must convene the parliament soon and show it without howling at road junctions.

          Jack Leach delight after Test catch marks friendship forged at Somerset      Cache   Translate Page      
• England spinner celebrates special moment with fielder
• ‘I can’t thank Moeen and Adil enough for helping me’

Ostensibly the dismissal of Dilruwan Perera was one of the more forgettable moments of another diverting day of the first Test against Sri Lanka. But not for Jack Leach. Immediately the catch was taken he started running at the fielder yelling “caught Buttler bowled Leach, caught Buttler bowled Leach”.

It was a dismissal Leach had dreamed about when the pair were playing for Somerset Under-11s. “To be out there with him and to have that dismissal in the book is special for me and hopefully for him as well,” Leach said.

There is a unique space where you can encounter everyone from developers of self-driving cars in Silicon Valley to city planners in Niamey to humanitarian workers in Kathmandu Valley: the global OpenStreetMap (OSM) community. It comprises a geographically and experientially diverse network of people who contribute to OSM, a free and editable map of the world that is often called the “Wikipedia of maps.”  

What is perhaps most special about this community is its level playing field. Anyone passionate about collaborative mapping can have a voice from anywhere in the world. In the past few years, there has been a meteoric rise of locally organized mapping communities in developing countries working to improve the map in service of sustainable development activities.

The next opportunity to see the OSM community in action will be the November 14th mapathon hosted by the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR)’s Open Data for Resilience Initiative (OpenDRI). Mapathons bring together volunteers to improve the maps of some of the world’s most vulnerable areas, not only easing the way for emergency responders when disaster strikes, but also helping cities and communities plan and build more resiliently for the future.

GFDRR’s engagement with local OSM communities

[[tweetable]]The 2010 Haiti earthquake served as a wake-up call about the need for access to better quality information for reducing vulnerability to natural hazards and climate change impacts.[[/tweetable]] In the years since, OpenDRI has turned to the OSM platform as an important way to bring people together to create open data, learn new skills, and support the human networks that eventually become key actors for resilience. We can gather people in a room around something exciting, like a mapathon, and start a conversation about sharing information for the benefit of everyone.

[[tweetable]]Any data, technology, or tool is only as valuable as the way and the extent to which people use it[[/tweetable]], and that’s why building sustainable mapping communities is so critical for this work. Even as we engage governments to promote the use of open data and open source tools, OpenDRI also strives to nurture local communities of OSM users and developers from universities, NGOs, and innovation hubs. To that end, OpenDRI supports local OSM communities and conferences like “State of the Map” whenever possible, particularly by funding scholarships for attendees who would not otherwise get to attend, learn, and share knowledge.

Participatory mapping in Asia and Africa

OpenDRI started its work with OSM by supporting the growth of local mapping communities in  Indonesia, the Philippines, Nepal, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka, including through the Open Cities Project. Many of these communities were quick on their feet to respond to the devastating 2015 earthquakes in Nepal. More than 6,000 volunteers helped add data to the OSM platform, mapping up to 80 percent of affected zones, an effort which continues to provide invaluable information to emergency response and preparedness efforts.In the years since, OSM communities across Asia have come together to exchange knowledge and build connections at a series of open source mapping conferences. The fourth “State of the Map Asia” conference will take place in Bangalore, India, this month.

In Africa, the stakes for OSM are even higher, because it is often the only digital map available for many locations. Recent years have brought a rise of participatory mapping communities across Africa, which now total more than 30 active local OSM groups. Africa’s first-ever “State of the Map” conference was held in Kampala, Uganda in 2017.

Building on that momentum, OpenDRI recently launched the Open Cities Africa project, currently supporting the development of teams in 11 cities across Africa. These teams are taking the lead in collecting data remotely and on-the-ground through participatory mapping, thus building mapping capacity in their local OSM communities. They are also collaborating with World Bank teams to use the new OSM data to help address a range of development challenges, from urban flooding in Kinshasa to coastal risk management in Senegal. Drawing on our experiences in Asia, we are incorporating novel approaches in our engagement in Africa, including online learning, gender integration, disruptive technologies, and design research.

What’s next for local OSM communities?

About this series
More blog posts


Local OSM communities are hopeful that the future will see a larger and more diverse population of mappers worldwide – this will be key to improving the “Wikipedia of maps” even further. As technology giants join the global OSM community, we are now exploring how new machine learning mapping techniques might complement and amplify the work of local OSM communities.

Over the past seven years, the OpenDRI team has been hard at work to create local communities around open-source mapping as part of our drive to promote open data for resilience, and that effort will continue.

To discover the OSM community for yourself and learn more about the benefits of using geospatial data for addressing the world’s most critical development challenges, join us on Wednesday, November 14 for the OpenDRI mapathon at the World Bank.

          South Africa beat Australia by six wickets in first one-day international – as it happened      Cache   Translate Page      
  • Australia 152; South Africa 153-4 (29.2 overs)
  • Australia have lost 17 of their past 19 ODIs

And here’s your match report:

Related: Australia fall to comprehensive ODI defeat against classy South Africa

A jarring loss here for the home side, for whom everything that could go wrong, did.

Australia came to the brand new Optus Stadium seeking a new era, a new start, equipped with some energy and elite honesty, and will rightly leave dejected. After losing the toss on an unexpectedly lively wicket, they were roundly spanked by a clinical South Africa.

Related: Australian cricket's new buzz words make Shane Warne 'want to vomit'

Miller clips two from his first ball, and South Africa completes an extremely simple victory.

After a week, month, half year of tumult in Australian cricket, today was a chance to enact the cliche ‘let’s just play cricket.’ Today’s performance will reinforce growing doubts that Australia are now seriously off the pace at international level.

Another for Stoinis. It’s back of a length, Klaasen throws his hands at it, and edges it healthily to Finch at perfectly catchable height. Three for the West Aussie, disappointing for Klaasen. Miller to the crease.

29th over: South Africa 151-3 (Klaasen 2, Du Plessis 10)

Last rites here, as Du Plessis takes Starc for the over. On the final ball, Du Plessis slaps Starc through cover point for three, leaving South Africa with three to win.

28th over: South Africa 145-3 (Klaasen 1, Du Plessis 7)

Reward for Stoinis, disappointment for Markram. All evidence points to a bright future for Markram - he looks a fantastic batsman. Klaasen comes to the crease and gets himself off strike quickly. South Africa have ten to win here.

Ball stays very low here, and slow, and Markram chops on. It’s a consolation wicket, and Markram is furious. He flings his bat in anger (doesn’t let go of it), akin to a child keen to absolutely smash all three stumps after dismissal. He keeps it in check, but he’s filthy. Another wicket for Stoinis.

27th over: South Africa 143-2 (Markram 36, Du Plessis 4)

Starc returns, as Faf continues his net. He’s in no hurry, and gets two at one point through cover. There’s a crowd catch, whose roar sounds palpably hollow, given there are about 9000 people in a 60000 seat stadium. Starc tries a yorker later - it looks fast, but Faf digs it out. Bumper to finish, Faf sways out of the way.

26th over: South Africa 141-2 (Markram 36, Du Plessis 2)

Stoinis has been serviceable in his early overs, but it all feels very imbued with the spirit of consolation at the moment. But he lets himself down with a half volley on Markram’s pads - there has been too many of these - and Markram whips him uppishly for four.

25th over: South Africa 136-2 (Markram 32, Du Plessis 1)

Markram swivels a rising Hazlewood delivery from the splice/glove past Carey for four to start the over, putting the Aussie quick on the back foot. There’s a leg bye, and a single that gets Du Plessis off the mark.

24th over: South Africa 130-2 (Markram 28, Du Plessis 0)

The over notable for Markram clipping one to mid-on, and Chris Lynn providing a classic Harbour Bridge, tumbling over the top of it and the ball thus running for four. He’s injured, we were told earlier, so it’s semi-understandable. Seven from the over.

23rd over: South Africa 123-2 (Markram 21, Du Plessis 0)

It’s Hazlewood to Du Plessis, and, well, does Du Plessis now set up like Steve Smith? The bat waves high and wild and wide as Hazlewood runs in. He absorbs five balls, and then the over finishes. Sweet Caroline now plays at Optus Stadium. Couldn’t have come sooner.

22nd over: South Africa 122-2 (Markram 20, Du Plessis 0)

Stoinis gets a run, and it’s a steady start. He beats Hendricks on the inside later in the over - it garners a half appeal - but it’s down leg. Eventually Hendricks loses patience and tries to loft Stoinis straight. He pops it to Lynn, bringing to end a pretty good innings. He’ll be disappointed with the manner of its conclusion, but he’s otherwise got his side home.

Stoinis enters and grabs Australia’s second wicket. The ball just holds up off the wicket and Hendricks - trying to hit Stoinis straight - loses his shape in its ugly entirety. His hand came off the bat, he slinked as the ball lobbed to Lynn at mid on, who came around to take an easy catch. Did it hit a crack? Who knows. South Africa will win soon. Good knock from Hendricks.

21st over: South Africa 122-1 (Markram 20, Hendricks 44)

Hazlewood returns, overpitches early, and Markram leans into an off-drive for four. South Africa needs 39 to win. And then, an even better cover drive, with Markram lashing one away with a full flow of the hands. Next ball - bang! A pull shot now. Four. It’s fourteen from the over. Australia not long for this match.

Kerry O’Keefe keeps talking about Josh Hazlewood’s massive hands. This is great commentary. #AUSvSA

20th over: South Africa 108-1 (Markram 6, Hendricks 44)

Cummins, who’s been Australia’s best by far, finds a genuine Markram edge first ball and it just evades Finch at second slip. Hendricks then executes yet another stand-up back-foot punch through cover for three - he’s looking far more comfortable against Cummins now. Little else, as Warne says he’d just take the Aussies “for a beer and a chat” to work through solutions for improvement.

19th over: South Africa 103-1 (Markram 5, Hendricks 41)

Another tight punch through the off side from the back foot of Hendricks moves him into the forties. Coulter-Nile looks a run below his colleagues here, too. He batted well, but seems to lack penetration here. He gives room to Markram later on, who flays him square through the offside for another three. Seven off the over.

@sjjperry I feel that the cultural revolution due to hit Australian cricket may need to go deeper than just arrogance and entitlement. Learning how to play with diligence and patience should be top of the list of priorities. Very poor showing tonight

18th over: South Africa 96-1 (Markram 2, Hendricks 38)

Markram a little uncertain in his early battle with Cummins, but who wouldn’t be facing the Australian bowling 140km in fading light. It manifests in an appeal from Cummins, whose query on a caught behind down the leg side is given, before it’s overturned. Cummins is bowling fast and accurately, but Markram survives.

Australia appealed for an under-edge down the leg side, taken by Carey. Aleem Dar gave it, but Markram was extremely nonchalant in calling for a review.

Markram given out caught behind

17th over: South Africa 94-1 (Markram 0, Hendricks 38)

Bowling change now, Nathan Coulter-Nile returns. He starts with a wide half-volley, but Hendricks can only cane him to cover point. He tries to sway out of the way of the second one - it takes his arm and bounces through the legs of Finch at second slip. It brings De Kock on strike, and another leg stump half volley is swung backward of square for four. He then gets De Kock, bringing Markram to the crease. Markram looked excellent against Australia last time they met, will be great to catch him again here.

Finally, a wicket. After getting pumped backward of square, Coulter-Nile holds the next one back. De Kock tries to hit this one over the sight screen, but skies it. The catch is simple enough, but well held by Hazlewood who moved back to take it on the edge of the circle at mid off. Great knock from De Kock - he looked class.

16th over: South Africa 89-0 (De Kock 43, Hendricks 37)

As we start the over, South Africa needs 70 from 208 deliveries. They’ve ten wickets in hand, and it’s all too easy. Hendricks is now finding the middle of the back, and crunches Cummins through cover for four. Cummins responds with a leg-cutter that beats the South African.

15th over: South Africa 83-0 (De Kock 42, Hendricks 33)

Starc continues, and midway through the over a short one sees De Kock flash his blade in jump upper-cut style. He gets a top edge, and plenty on it, so if flies over second slip away for four. Starc then gets a shot at Hendricks, who I think both Starc and Cummins fancy nabbing. The left-armer gives him one of those round-the-wicket yorkers and nearly breaks his defence. But then, out of nowhere, Hendricks unleashes a brutal pull shot that cracks off his blade, the ball speeding to the ropes. Ten from the over.

14th over: South Africa 73-0 (De Kock 37, Hendricks 28)

Cummins, continuing his dominance of Henricks, gets one to rear up and it canons into Hendricks’ shoulder. Looks like it hit a crack, the bounce was outrageous. Hendricks reeled away, no doubt in great pain. The consensus is it ‘played up’, to use Mark Waugh’s words. Coldplay’s God Put A Smile Upon Your Face plays while he receives some treatment; not sure Hendricks feels that way just now. Cummins then bowls a bouncer, and Hendricks needs to get off strike. He does better than that though, punching one off the back foot through the vacant point region for three, and a break. It doesn’t last long, as a De Kock single brings him back on. Hendricks responds with a single of his own. Five from it.

That ball was dangerous. Hits Hendricks in the shoulder but very nearly the throat #AUSvSA

13th over: South Africa 68-0 (De Kock 36, Hendricks 24)

Kerry O’Keeffe and Mark Waugh are conducting a full scale technical and tactical analysis of Pat Cummins’ bowling. It’s refreshing. I’m half waiting for the pizza topping poll to pop up and restore this overt intellectualism. Mean time, Starc has De Kock bunting a bouncer that comes on a bit quickly. Later, Hendricks finally gets some much-needed width and hammers one through his favoured off-side. The sting is taken out of it from short cover - but he gets three. Six from it. South Africa roll on.

‘Dream with us,Smile with us’ !!! #AUSvSA

12th over: South Africa 62-0 (De Kock 34, Hendricks 21)

Cummins is bowling brilliantly here. And Kerry O’Keeffe is in a class of his own in commentary. He notes that Hendricks plonks his front foot straight down the line of middle stump, and that a fourth stump line will eventually do him in. It’s jarring to hear such insight on Australian TV commentary - I hope it’s well received. Though South Africa are well ahead, Cummins seems a bit too much for Hendricks here. He’s too quick, and is offering him no width, which Hendricks needs. He finishes by thumping Henricks on the thigh. The end result is a maiden, and an intangible points decision to ‘P Cummins’, as Kerry calls him.

11th over: South Africa 62-0 (De Kock 34, Hendricks 21)

A bit of a lull here and Hendricks and De Kock negotiate Cummins and Starc. It’s prompted a Summit on Australian Cricket with Gilchrist, Smith and Warne on TV comms, and the latter is waxing very lyrical. As ever, it’s about “natural aggression” and “forgetting 200 page documents”. Just be like us.

"Diarrhoea" and "vomit" used in the same sentence by Warne when discussing elite honesty, reviews and pacts #AUSvSA

10th over: South Africa 57-0 (De Kock 33, Hendricks 18)

It’s Cummins into the attack, and he has Hendricks hopping. A few inside edges into the inner thigh, and nary a front foot press to be seen. The brains trust are sufficiently encouraged to bring Travis Head under the lid, and Cummins beats him with the three-card trick. It’s full, and beats Hendricks’ outside edge. “Two wickets,” cries Carey.

9th over: South Africa 57-0 (De Kock 33, Hendricks 18)

A quieter over, with the exception of Hazlewood crushing one into De Kock’s hand. The slow motion replays always hurt to watch. De Kock’s otherwise happy to see him off. Two from the over.

8th over: South Africa 55-0 (De Kock 31, Hendricks 18)

Starc continues. He’s bowling to Hendricks, who’s significantly more circumspect than his partner, De Kock. But as I write that, he cracks a glorious cover drive on the up between mid off and cover for four. It brings up fifty for South Africa. They won’t spend long there, as Hendricks digs another one wide of mid-off for four.

So, uh, does @FoxCricket / @FOXCricketLive have the rights to Shawshank Redemption? Miiiiiiight be needing it soon #AUSvRSA

7th over: South Africa 47-0 (De Kock 31, Hendricks 10)

Hazlewood starts with a half-volley outside off. Three for Hendricks. Later, De Kock lifts the quick over square leg with a sumptuous flick, careering into the rope. And another through the leg side for three. There’s an argument Australia are ‘attacking’, but this is rank, planless, ‘both sides’ bowling. And if there is a side, it’s the leg side. Eleven from this over. An absolute shellacking as it stands.

6th over: South Africa 36-0 (De Kock 24, Hendricks 6)

It’s Starc to continue, and De Kock strokes him with ease through the off-side for two. “The crowd groans,” says Shane Warne, who’s spent the last five minutes canvassing all the ways Australia can come back into this. Starc’s then too straight, and De Kock works him through the leg side. It’s bad bowling, and too easy for De Kock. He’s straight again and he strikes De Kock on the pad. There’s a huge shout, Warne thinks it’s absolutely plum, and it’s going miles down leg. Australia choose not to review. De Kock then gets off strike with one pushed to mid off. It brings Hendricks on strike, who slices one through point for three. Eight from the over. Too easy.

One of those scenarios where only an early wicket, a run out, something to knock South Africa off their equilibrium, will give Australia hope. If De Kock and Hendricks can take the score to fifty without loss, it will be curtains.

If you’re after a bit of class writing on a class player during this dinner break, look no further than Mr Ronay on James Anderson here:

Where stats and stories meet...

Australia have started with fire, but no finesse. Their average bowling speed in the first five overs was 143.7kph, compared to SA's 139.5kph, but their accuracy was down. Just 33% of their balls pitched on a good line and length, compared to 50% for SA at this stage. #AUSvSA

5th over: South Africa 28-0 (De Kock 19, Hendricks 3)

Hazlewood seems to have settled into his length (back of), but it doesn’t tempt Hendricks. He’s happy to leave the ball outside off, presumably with the dinner break in mind. His team are going at nearly six an over, so he’s right to do so. It’s a maiden, but all points go to South Africa.

Mitchell Starc is having a tricky year in ODI cricket. Only once has he recorded a worse strike rate in a calendar year - he's never recorded a worse economy rate. #AUSvSA pic.twitter.com/HKnRtT1Vg0

4th over: South Africa 28-0 (De Kock 19, Hendricks 3)

So it’s Starc, and it’s a little better. Most of them angle across Hendricks, who, eight balls into his innings, is yet to score. He then waves his bat at one, slashing it on the bounce toward third man for two, before running one down to the same area. Then, out of nowhere, one screams past De Kock. The South African has casually pressed onto the front foot, before rapidly flinging his head and body out of the way.

3rd over: South Africa 25-0 (De Kock 19, Hendricks 0)

Now Hazlewood starts with a half-volley. Again, De Kock doesn’t miss. Four. Next one is leg-side. Four. Soul-destroying stuff for Australia, brilliant for South Africa. Hazlewood then elicits an edge that falls safely short of second slip, and we hear a dim clap or two come through the stump mic. Hazlewood finds a length in the back half of the over, but Australia are otherwise all over the shop.

Gee when was the last time Starc didn't take the new ball - in any match! #AusvSA

2nd over: South Africa 17-0 (De Kock 11, Hendricks 0)

Surprised it’s not Starc at the other end - were Coulter-Nile’s lower order runs reason to promote him? It doesn’t pay off here: Coulter-Nile delivers two half volleys on De Kock’s pads which are dispatched, then another floated to De Kock’s off stump, which also goes to the boundary. “Looks a different surface already,” says Graeme Smith. Maxwell saves another boundary after a short/wide one, followed by a wide down leg side that goes for four wides, and with that, Coulter-Nile has pretty much destroyed any small opportunity for momentum Australia had. Heads will be down.

1st over: South Africa 1-0 (De Kock 0, Hendricks 0)

Hazlewood starts well, getting one to lift past Hendricks’ bat, encouragingly taken by Carey above shoulder height. He hits the deck hard, and has Hendricks ‘locked’ at the crease - neither forward or back. There was a leg bye earlier. Tight stuff from Australia’s co-vice captain. Coulter-Nile from the other end...

Well, that happened. I was just enjoying a prosecco in the sun with my wife and some friends, young son playing happily on the picnic rug. Nek minute, I’m here on the livebloggery tools to chronicle this inauspicious start to the summer for the Australian national side.

To re-cap. Australia have been bowled out for 152, their lowest total at home in 20 years against South Africa. Feels they’re yielding unwanted records with regularity at the moment. There is a fundamental problem with the batting that runs deeper than the absence of Smith and Warner – and today further confirmed it.

That really was a dismal batting effort from Australia. South Africa bowled and fielded superbly but so many of the wickets were gifted to them by poor batting. Can the bowlers turn 152 into a decent total? Find out with Sam Perry.

Because of how early Australia have been dismissed South Africa will begin their reply before the dinner break. Their innings will get underway in ten minutes.

Coulter-Nile might be regretting that decision to pinch a single. To the first ball of Ngidi’s over he slaps an attempted pull high into the Perth sky, allowing Klaasen to sweep around an pouch his third catch with the minimum of fuss.

39th over: Australia 151-9 (Coulter-Nile 34, Hazlewood 6) Hazlewood on strike for the start of Tahir’s over, can he survive? Yes, he can, defending a couple of straight ones and driving a single to bring Coulter-Nile back on strike. NCN doesn’t look too comfortable picking the leggie but scrambles a single to pinch the strike.

37th over: Australia 150-9 (Coulter-Nile 33, Hazlewood 5) Now, can Coulter-Nile slog Australia to something defendable with Josh Hazlewood at the non-striker’s end? He starts promisingly, pulling Ngidi powerfully for four, but then accepts the single on offer second ball. And why not!? Hazlewood belies his number 11 status with an impudent four, standing his ground and angling his bat and guiding a short delivery over the slip cordon to the vacant third-man boundary.

The runs are starting to flow for Australia now. Three leg-byes off Tahir are followed by another boundary, this time a slog-swept four from Starc. But that’s where the fun ends, Starc is beaten by a stock Tahir leggie and given out on-field by Aleem Dar. Starc reviews but DRS confirms there was no inside-edge, the ball pitched in line and was going on to hit leg stump.

Starc given LBW on-field.

35th over: Australia 132-8 (Coulter-Nile 28, Starc 7) Phehlukwayo replaces Rabada and after a couple of nondescript deliveries Starc attempts to smack him over long-off but gets under it and only just evades the fielder running back from mid-off. A single rotates the strike allowing Coulter-Nile to pull for six! The first maximum of the match from out of nowhere. Short from Phehlukwayo and the batsman was onto it in a flash, pulling hard, just clearing the man on the square-leg fence. A rare few moments for the home fans to cheer.

In their last four matches (all formats), no Australian has made more runs than Nathan Coulter-Nile. #AUSvSA

34th over: Australia 122-8 (Coulter-Nile 22, Starc 4) Frustrating over for Tahir. He bamboozles Coulter-Nile for a few deliveries for no reward before a thick outside-edge runs away for four.

33rd over: Australia 118-8 (Coulter-Nile 18, Starc 4) Coulter-Nile and Rabada resume battle and the points go to the Australian this over with the powerful right-handed batsman slapping a length delivery over mid-off for four. Starc gets in on the act later too, replicating the shot from a left-hander’s perspective. Australia need plenty more of this lower-order hitting if they’re to post a challenging total.

32nd over: Australia 107-8 (Coulter-Nile 11, Starc 0) Carey clearly the standout batsman for Australia so far but his was the latest in a series of dismissals that could be categorised as an unforced error. Credit to South Africa though, they have performed superbly.

Du Plessis is persisting with Tahir but Carey has handled the spinner well. He continues that good form at the start of the 32nd over, driving behind square for four and then working him to the onside for a couple more. And then he gets himself out. Dear oh dear. Carey goes down on one leg and reaches forward for the lap sweep but doesn’t make good connection, feathering a top edge onto his arm and looping up for De Kock to make a simple catch jogging back from his mark. Yet another promising partnership curtailed with a needless dismissal.

31st over: Australia 101-7 (Carey 27, Coulter-Nile 11) This is good fun now with Coulter-Nile counter-attacking. After his boundary last over he sends another ball to the fence, this time a checked drive off Rabada. Furious, the fast bowler returns to rip one past Coulter-Nile’s gloves and then grimaces watching a length ball outside off stump swished at without contact.

30th over: Australia 96-7 (Carey 26, Coulter-Nile 7) Tahir to Coulter-Nile, this could be fun, and it is, the aggressive lower-order batsman smiting the leggie through the covers with no little force for four, then somehow preserving his wicket despite failing to read a googly that beats him all ends up.

29th over: Australia 90-7 (Carey 26, Coulter-Nile 1) Australia not covering themselves in glory today. South Africa have bowled and fielded faultlessly but some of the dismissals have been handed to them on a plate.

Two overs is enough for that Steyn spell with Du Plessis recalling Rabada into the attack. Three balls in Carey tips and runs but Cummins is slow off the mark and David Miller swoops in from cover, picks up, dives and throws in one fluid motion, lighting up the zing bails before Cummins’ despairing dive takes him to safety. Super fielding from South Africa.

28th over: Australia 89-6 (Carey 26, Cummins 12) Rapid over-rate boosting over from Tahir that goes for a couple.

27th over: Australia 87-6 (Carey 26, Cummins 10) Superb over from Dale Steyn who is bowling with pace and rhythm, hitting perfect lines and lengths and finding just a hint of late away-swing with this white Kookaburra. Cummins leaves well throughout though, and nicks a single from the final delivery. Earlier in the over Steyn did find the edge of Cummins’ bat but it was defended with soft hands and didn’t carry to the cordon.

For all his pace and skill, Dale Steyn's accuracy has been immense today. 54% of his deliveries today have been on a good, in-between length; only once in the last five years has he found that length more often in the first half of an ODI innings. #AUSvSA

26th over: Australia 86-6 (Carey 26, Cummins 9) Carey welcomes Tahir to the crease for his third over of leg-spin by slog-sweeping powerfully for four over midwicket. South Africa send the second ball upstairs for an LBW review but Carey survives.

Carey just found a bottom edge to an attempted reverse sweep to Tahir and survives South Africa’s review.

Carey given not-out LBW on-field.

25th over: Australia 82-6 (Carey 22, Cummins 9) Five overs three for 23 is a superb return for Phehlukwayo but his spell is over because Dale Steyn fancies another dart. He’s on the money immediately, swinging the ball at pace past the outside edge of the right-handed Cummins. Cummins retains his concentration well, clipping three through midwicket to rotate the strike and keep the scoreboard ticking over.

On a positive note Australia have steadily improved from 2-4 to 6 -76....#PosiveNegative @JPHowcroft

24th over: Australia 78-6 (Carey 21, Cummins 6) Tahir into the second over of his spell. Couple of singles from it, not a great deal to report. That’s possibly because I’m focussed more on Tahir’s styling. He’s rocking an Alice band and longish bleached blonde hair giving him the look of David Beckham circa 2003.

23rd over: Australia 76-6 (Carey 20, Cummins 5) Good over from Phehlukwayo, testing Carey from around the wicket, first beating the outside edge and then striking the batsman’s front pad in a location that draws a stifled appeal.

22nd over: Australia 74-6 (Carey 19, Cummins 4) Time for some spin and the introduction of Imran Tahir for the first time today. Carey demonstrates Australia’s planning, the left-hander sweeping aggressively first ball. He earns three for that stroke, a total matched by Cummins later in the over for a nice cut behind square.

Phehlukwayo strays onto Stoinis’ pads to hand the all-rounder a freebie boundary. He then offers some width to allow Stoinis two more. Australia finally hitting their stride here? No. No, no, no, no, no. A near identical dismissal to Maxwell has Stoinis back in the sheds shaking his head in dismay. Fullish from Phehlukwayo at a moderate pace and Stoinis can’t resist going for the big heave-ho, succeeding only in mistiming a loopy drive to Klaasen at mid-on. The fielder holds on in more routine fashion this time.

20th over: Australia 58-5 (Carey 14, Stoinis 8) Some of Australia’s batting has been ordinary but this has been a superb bowling performance from South Africa. Ngidi continues to probe at pace, nibbling the ball both ways off the seam, beating the inside edge of Stoinis’ bat, then finding the outside edge, but he has to watch the Kookaburra bounce just short of third slip and scuttle away to the third-man fence. Just for good measure Ngidi rips one past the outside edge again to conclude the over.

19th over: Australia 52-5 (Carey 14, Stoinis 3) Phehlukwayo now has two wickets to his name, reinforcing the quality of this South African attack. He was gifted his second scalp by a poor effort from Maxwell, the kind of shot that offers plenty of fuel to his critics who consider him ill-suited to the international game.

The third umpire begins his review looking for caught behind but there’s no inside edge. Ball tracker then clearly indicates Stoinis was outside the line of off-stump and no risk of LBW. The batsman is reprieved.

Stoinis given out caught behind on-field.

Phehlukwayo continues and he has Maxwell first ball - or does he? Yes, he does. Full and straight, Maxwell aims a lazy-looking uppish drive that looks to be a routine catch at mid-on but Klaasen makes a bit of a meal of getting to the pitch. The fielder and the rest of the Proteas celebrate without any hesitation but Maxwell stands his ground. The third umpire is called upon, and crucially, the soft signal is out. Michael Gough isn’t overly impressed with the replays at his disposal and as a consequence cannot find enough evidence to overturn the soft signal. Hugely disappointing end for Maxwell and another missed opportunity for the Victorian.

The umpires went upstairs for another look, but Glenn Maxwell was on his way... #AUSvSA#CloseMatters @GilletteAU pic.twitter.com/flIRKHZm17

18th over: Australia 48-4 (Carey 14, Maxwell 11) Ngidi returns for his third spell, and he concedes more runs this over than his previous five put together. Maxwell and Carey both work singles before the former times a textbook straight drive for four just beyond the non-striker’s stumps. Ngidi responds by making one spit off a length that hurts Maxwell, catching the batsman’s right thumb as he tries to defend on the back foot. The Australian physio is out to take a look at the damage.

Slightly galling that after such hype about ‘cricket like never before’, Hussey and Mark Waugh joke over how hard they find ‘Phehlukwayo’ to pronounce and Hussey adds ‘haven’t seen much of him’.

If you don’t watch much cricket why are you commentating the cricket?#AUSvSA

17th over: Australia 41-4 (Carey 13, Maxwell 5) Out strides the mercurial Glenn Maxwell and the Victorian is off the mark first ball with a boundary, stepping across his stumps and tickling a glance to the fine-leg fence. Huge opportunity for Maxwell to bat his way into the selectors’ good books today.

Short and wide from Phehlukwayo, Lynn tries to smash the leather off the ball but it keeps a fraction low, the batsman succeeding only in feathering the tiniest of inside-edges through to the diving de Kock. The edge wasn’t picked up by the on-field umpire but de Kock was adamant and his confidence was supported by real-time snicko.

A great review from the Proteas and Lynn has to go... #AUSvSA #CloseMatters @GilletteAU pic.twitter.com/cyfYDwNflL

South Africa think they have a catch behind, given not out in the middle.

16th over: Australia 36-3 (Lynn 15, Carey 13) Lynn unleashes that frustration of the previous over on Rabada, making sure of a boundary this time around, carving a rare loose delivery through the covers with that satisfying whipcrack noise ends any communication with the non-striker over whether or not to run.

Drinks.

15th over: Australia 31-3 (Lynn 10, Carey 13) Andile Phehlukwayo has his first trundle, offering Australia their first glance of a bowler below 140kph. Both batsmen are immediately more comfortable and both add to their scores without much danger. Lynn will be disappointed he didn’t put away the first rank bad ball of the innings, Phehlukwayo dropping short and wide, thankful for the sweeper on the cover boundary. After a torrid start, Australia now have something of a partnership and a platform on which to build.

14th over: Australia 27-3 (Lynn 9, Carey 10) This is relentless from South Africa, over after over of high class fast bowling. Lynn does well to survive the latest test from Rabada, once again managing not to inside-edge a delivery that almost cuts him in two, and then somehow not getting his bat to one that just skims past off stump.

13th over: Australia 26-3 (Lynn 9, Carey 9) Ngidi continues his excellent morning, proving his worth from around the wicket to the left-handed Carey after spending most of the morning bowling over the wicket. He almost forces Carey to play on with one that angled in and he also almost accounted for Lynn with a vicious off-cutter that carved the batsman in two off a length.

12th over: Australia 23-3 (Lynn 9, Carey 7) Lynn tries his best to change the momentum in this Rabada over and eventually it pays off. The final delivery of the 12th over brings the first boundary of the innings, Rabada over-pitching and Lynn just offering the face of the bat to guide it through the vacant mid-on region. The ball before climbed alarmingly on Lynn from just short of a length but the but the big Queenslander retained his composure well.

11th over: Australia 19-3 (Lynn 5, Carey 7) Ngidi returns to give Steyn a break and the change of ends does not disrupt his superb rhythm. All Carey can do is send back yet another maiden.

Last time Australia didn't score a boundary in the first ten overs of an ODI was 2007. #AUSvSA

10th over: Australia 19-3 (Lynn 5, Carey 7) Just the one off the over from Rabada, cramping Carey for room from around the wicket. Australia 19-3 after the opening powerplay.

Cricket Aus should hold these games at the WACA if they cant get more than a few thousand in this new stadium - empty seats look awful, reminds me of the GABBA.... #ausvsa

9th over: Australia 18-3 (Lynn 5, Carey 6) Steyn into his fifth over, hitting 140+ kph consistently and offering precious little in terms of length or width to Carey. The scoring options to the left-handed Carey are in the wheelhouse of the two earlier dismissals caught behind the wicket. He has two drives this over to deliveries similar to those mishit by Short and Head, the first finds cover, the second pierces the gap just wide of point and the scoreboard operator gets their first workout in a while.

The skill of Steyn is remarkable. He's bowled 17% full deliveries, compared to Ngidi's 27%, but the veteran has found almost three times as much swing as his younger teammates, 0.6° compared to 0.22°. #AUSvSA

8th over: Australia 15-3 (Lynn 5, Carey 3) Ngidi, with three overs one for two to his credit, has a break and he’s replaced by Kagiso Rabada. The young tearaway continues the good work of his teammates, hitting that same good line and length, keeping the pressure on Australia. Rabada also throws down the first bouncer of the day and de Kock makes a bit of a mess of it behind the stumps, conceding a bye and risking a broken finger with an awkward-looking parry.

Aus's equal second-worst start in ODIs at 3-8. Cape Town, 2005-06, they were 3-5. Three other 3-8s, all last century. #AusvRSA

@cricketcomau @OfficialCSA #AUSvSA

7th over: Australia 12-3 (Lynn 3, Carey 3) Australia’s best over of the day so far. Lynn works a single to invite vice captain Alex Carey on strike and the left-hander drives neatly behind square to pick up three.

Accepting the umpire’s decision and refusing to use the DRS a bold new form of #elitehonesty.

6th over: Australia 8-3 (Lynn 2, Carey 0) This is calamitous from Australia and flawless from South Africa. Finch will be furious with himself for not reviewing that LBW decision.

It took 13 deliveries but Ngidi finally sent down an errant ball, offering Finch a couple on his pads. That was quickly forgotten though because four balls later Ngidi stepped wider on the crease and angled the ball sharply into Finch’s pads and Aleem Dar raises his finger! Another one gone! Oooh, it looked high in real time but Finch neglected to review - and guess what - DRS reveals the ball was bouncing over the bails.

5th over: Australia 6-2 (Finch 2, Lynn 2) Steyn is all over Lynn this over, beating the outside edge on a number of occasions with plenty of pace and subtle variations in length and seam. Lynn survives but South Africa have the upper hand early.

4th over: Australia 6-2 (Finch 2, Lynn 2) Finch cautiously allows Ngidi a second maiden in a row. It’s a lovely over from the paceman, moving the ball both ways on a perfect line and length.

3rd over: Australia 6-2 (Finch 2, Lynn 2) Well, that was eventful. Both dismissals in the over were form deliveries there to hit but both left-handers showed poor technique. Neither displayed the footwork to reach the pitch of the ball, but went with hard hands, and the combination against the new ball so early in the innings resulted in the worst possible outcome.

Oh dear. This is not going according to plan for Australia. Another widish half-volley from Steyn, another ball there to hit, and another powerful edge taken behind the wicket. This is a much different catch though. De Kock’s was a routine pouch by the gloveman, this was a superb leaping grab by Du Plessis at second slip.

South Africa have the early breakthrough. After two overs of pristine line and length from the Proteas, Dale Steyn offers Head a smidgen of width and the opener throws the kitchen sink at it but succeeds only in nicking forcefully behind.

Dale Steyn gives South Africa an ideal start in Perth.

Watch live HERE: https://t.co/wqVydHLsAq #AUSvSA pic.twitter.com/K0tWpmQjH0

2nd over: Australia 3-0 (Finch 2, Head 1) Lungi Ngidi shares the new ball and he’s on the money from the off with a very tidy maiden. Like Steyn, Ngidi’s angling the ball across the left-handed Head from over the wicket.

There’s plenty of bounce and carry in this pitch early on, the ball hitting the bat high and hard from a length.

Great to see all those empty seats turn up early for the #AUSvRSA match at @OptusStadium in Perth!

Australia have won four of the past five World Cups but they are enduring a lean run of form heading into next year’s tournament in England and Wales.

Since the 2015 World Cup Australia have won just 45% of their 60 ODIs & since the start of the 2017 Champions Trophy Australia have won 11% of their 18 ODIs. Australia have less than six months & 16 scheduled ODIs to solve their problems. #AUSvSA pic.twitter.com/wAmixAWHac

1st over: Australia 3-0 (Finch 2, Head 1) Woosh! The first delivery of the summer is a beauty from Steyn, over the wicket, angling away from the left-hander on a perfect line and length. Head rotates the strike nicely from the second ball and the shift to the right-handed Finch sees Steyn stray onto the Australian skipper’s pads and continue the scoreboard’s early momentum.

The first ball of the summer is moments away. Travis Head is on strike, Dale Steyn is at his mark.

The shift in Australian cricket broadcasting away from Channel Nine to Fox Sports and Channel Seven will be one of the storylines of the summer. Australians have a testy relationship with Pay TV and there will be a backlash against the move to place some matches - including this one - behind a paywall.

However, with change hopefully comes innovation and a raising of standards. Recent summers on Nine were uninspiring, undermined by blokey banter delivered by an all-too familiar cast of former internationals.

The teams are out on the Optus Stadium outfield for the anthems and welcome to country, the hosts arrive top to toe in Australian gold, the visitors in a natty forest green number that looks like it offers a nod to the old Green Shield stamps.

While we’re here to focus on the action, the past week cannot be overlooked. Here’s how a dramatic few days unfolded with the damning cultural reviews eventually accounting for Cricket Australia chairman David Peever.

After literally writing the book on the past few grisly months, Geoff Lemon must have enjoyed focussing on the cricket for his series preview.

It should be a series about the bowling far more than the batting, but any batting performances of note might count for more because of that. With that World Cup looming, every game from here matters for the players hoping to make it. That will be the focus from both sides now, rather than any shared history about sandpaper.

South Africa have brought a strong squad to Australia as their World Cup preparation intensifies, but their brief tour did not get off to the best of starts against an Australian Prime Minister’s XI in Canberra.

South Africa have gone with their first-choice bowling attack which means Dale Steyn and Kagiso Rabada tearing into the Australian top-order. The batting remains a work in progress with understudies auditioning for spots in the absence of the injured Hashim Amla and JP Duminy. AB de Villiers’ retirement continues to leave a big hole.

South Africa XI: Quinton de Kock (wk), Aiden Markram, Reeza Hendricks, Faf du Plessis (c), Heinrich Klaasen, David Miller, Andile Phehlukwayo, Dale Steyn, Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi, Imran Tahir #AUSvSA

Australia’s teamsheet confirms the absence of a frontline spinner, meaning Ashton Agar and Adam Zampa both miss out. The top order has to do without Shaun Marsh who, according to CA, is undergoing ‘minor surgery on an abscess in his buttock region’. What a pain in the ar...

Australia XI: Aaron Finch (c), Travis Head, D'Arcy Short, Chris Lynn, Alex Carey (wk), Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood #AUSvSA

Faf du Plessis correctly called tails and opted to bowl first on a deck he expects to have plenty of pace with the new ball. The South African strategy is clearly to hit Australia early with their fearsome pace attack.

Aaron Finch tapped into his Elite Honesty and explained he would also have bowled first to take advantage of the decent covering of grass on the track. Finch indicated faith in D’Arcy Short’s ability to rattle through some overs of spin removed the requirement to select a frontline spinner.

Did someone say summertime?

Hello everybody and welcome to the start of another massive summer of international cricket here in Australia. Between now and the beginning of February Australia’s men will host South Africa, India and Sri Lanka across three different formats, all the while facing scrutiny like never before after the tumult of recent months.

The marathon begins at Perth’s Optus Stadium with the first of three ODIs against the Proteas. The opening delivery will be bowled at 11.20am local time (2.20pm AEST / 3.30am GMT) and you can follow all the action right here.

          MediXserve Builds Unified Medical Records System via Blockchain      Cache   Translate Page      

Wazzup Pilipinas!

MediXserve, a healthtech startup, is rolling out a unified blockchain-based electronic medical record (EMR) system to make patients’ medical histories trackable “from womb to tomb.”

The system, which MediXserve said is a first for the Philippines, will be a centralized database of medical records accessible — upon the patient’s approval — to anyone and anywhere.

“The technology will allow you to access all your medical records from all the doctors that you’ve been to, to all the hospitals you were confined since the day you were born,” Jorge C. Azurin, founder and CEO of MediXserve said.

“Now, people will say technology is already available. Actually, hindi (no)… it’s really difficult because you have one hospital using a different system, another hospital using a different system, so the inter-operability is difficult, so blockchain fixes it,” Mr. Azurin explained.

The Philippine-based health care services company has acquired several existing businesses with existing revenues and branded products, namely ShineOS+, Medixhome Care, Lifedata Systems Inc., and MyCareBuddy. Combined sales of these products has reached $5 million,

MediXserve said. The price of its software ranges from just $50,000 to $1.1 million.
“We take patient medical history and we provide permanent, trackable, streamlined framework for the storage of that data. We provide it in a centralized manner, so it becomes more cost effective because…it becomes a paperless transaction. On the network, it becomes faster and more efficient as well as accurate in aid of decision support and diagnostic,” said Oliver V. Chato, MediXserve head for Blockchain Applications and System Integration.

The company said an offline version will be provided for areas where internet connection is limited. Users will input the data even with no internet connection, save it in a flash drive and upload it later when there is a connection.

Mr. Azurin said the data in the platform will be secure since blockchain is “unhackable,” with any attempt to change data in the system likely to be detected and rejected immediately as they are stored in chronologically — and linearly-connected blocks.

The company mainly targets developing countries, with health care expenditures in these economies seen to rise to $4 trillion by 2020. In the Philippines, health spending is seen growing to P1.2 trillion by 2022.

“Ang target market namin (Our target market) is the Philippines and selected countries like Nigeria, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Egypt, even Europe… We already have team members operating there. It is a Philippine company that’s going for global operations,” Mr. Azurin said.

He said the company is raising up to $20 million from foreign investors to boost its operations.

“Most of the investors are in Southeast Asia, a lot are based in Singapore mostly in the health and blockchain industry.”

1st Test: SLvENG; பலமான நிலையில் இங்கிலாந்து-1st Test: SLvENG; England at Strong Position

இலங்கை மற்றும் இங்கிலாந்து அணிகளுக்கு இடையிலான முதலாவது போட்டியின் 2 ஆம் நாள் ஆட்டம் இன்று (07)  நிறைவு பெற்றது.

இங்கிலாந்து அணி தமது முதல் இன்னிங்ஸுக்காக சகல விக்கட்டுக்களையும் இழந்து 342 ஓட்டங்களைப் பெற்றது. அறிமுக வீரராக களமிறங்கிய பென் போக்ஸ் 107 ஓட்டங்களைப் பெற்றார். பந்து வீச்சில் தில்ருவன் பெரேரா 5 விக்கட்டுக்களையும் சுரங்க லக்மால் 3 விக்கட்டுக்களையும் வீழ்த்தினர்.

பதிலுக்கு துடுப்பெடுத்தாடக் களமிறங்கிய இலங்கை அணி முன்கள வீரர்களின் மோசமான துடுப்பாட்டம் காரணமாக அடுத்தடுத்து விக்கட்டுக்களை இழந்து தடுமாரியது. 42 ஓட்டங்களுக்கு 4 விக்கட்டுகளை இழந்து இக்கட்டான நிலையில் இருந்த இலங்கை அணியை மெத்திவஸ், சந்திமால் ஜோடி ஓரளவு கெளரவமான நிலைக்கு கொண்டு சென்றது. தொடர்ந்து இங்கிலாந்து அணியின் சிறப்பான பந்து வீச்சு காரணமாக சந்திமால் 33 ஓட்டங்களுடனும் மெத்திவ்ஸ் 52 ஓட்டங்களுடனும் ஆட்டமிழந்தனர்.

திக்வெல்ல மற்றும் இறுதி விக்கட்டுக்காக ஜோடி சேர்ந்த லக்மால், ஹேரத் ஆகியோர்களின் கனிசமான ஓட்டப் பெறுதிகளுடன் இலங்கை அணி தமது முதல் இன்னிங்ஸுக்காக சகல விக்கட்டுக்களையும் இழந்து 203 ஓட்டங்களைப் பெற்றது.

பந்து வீச்சில் மொயின் அலி 4 விக்கட்டுக்களையும் ஜெக் லீச் மற்றும் ஆதில் ரஷீத் தலா இரு விக்கட்டுகளையும் வீழ்த்தினர்.

Carbon monoxide safety, we are all in this together.

Isn’t life strange, a turn of the page; can read like before, can we ask for more?” from: "Isn't Life Strange" Moody Blues - music link

Daily News Links Are Below These Opening Questions And Warnings
How much carbon monoxide are you in when in any motor vehicle?

Did you know that many people do not measure the air they breathe.

After prevention there is no greater awareness than measurement.
Awareness leads to quick thinking. Measurement leads to quick action.

Are you in the know?

Do I know enough about carbon monoxide and carbon monoxide poisoning to justify never knowing how much is in the air I breathe every day, everywhere I go?”

There are some people who want to be notified of the presence of carbon monoxide at levels or concentrations as soon as the gas is present, at concentrations well below those that can instigate poor health symptoms but not be high enough levels to sound the CO alarm they own.

There are some people who do not want to push a button on their CO alarm to see what low, aggravating levels of the poison might be in their home, or anywhere.


The most recommended CO Alarm in U.S. is a high level alarm

Standard for Single and Multiple Station Carbon Monoxide Alarms
UL 2034
1.3 Carbon monoxide alarms covered by this standard are not intended to alarm when exposed to long-term, low-level carbon monoxide exposures or slightly higher short-term transient carbon monoxide exposures, possibly caused by air pollution and/or properly installed/maintained fuel-fired appliances and fireplaces…

At around midnight on Saturday, a guest had brought the charcoal grill from outside into the living room to provide some warmth because the heating in the house wasn't working. - When those celebrating, including four children between the ages of two and seven, went to sleep, the residual heat from the grill began spreading toxic gases. - The fire brigade's measurements of the gases in the morning revealed that the concentration of carbon monoxide (CO) in the house was so high that it was only possible to enter the house wearing breathing apparatus.

Safety Education - Poster Contest Listing
U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission
We challenged middle school students to create posters warning people about the dangers of poisonous carbon monoxide (CO). Did students ever step up to the challenge! We received 700 poster entries – a record number!        Watch the video of the winning posters.

Please Note: "Place a carbon monoxide alarm with a digital display on a seat in the motor vehicle when you are out driving in emergency snow conditions (or always for that specific). Harmful levels of carbon monoxide (CO) can penetrate inside a motor vehicle just due to prevailing winds and exhaust not moving away from the vehicle but under it. If you want to learn more about carbon monoxide, begin measuring it with a personal CO monitor everywhere you go." Bob Dwyer, CSME Carbon Monoxide Safety

We have all been CO poisoned, some more than others
The following link takes you to a site with views from those who have been poisoned. The seriousness of carbon monoxide poisoning, the grief, suffering and disorientations experienced are clearly portrayed with the intent to help others and prevent future poisonings. With respect, please visit: Carbon Monoxide Survivor

What is in the air you are breathing right now?

What will you be doing today; walking into poison?
Who will be responsible for the air you breathe?
You may be the only person who can prevent your own poisoning.
We are all vulnerable to carbon monoxide exposure and poisoning.
Everyone has been poisoned by CO and will be poisoned again. The degree of the poisoning depends upon allowing yourself to be in a situation where someone else controls the air you breathe and the mechanisms for alarming notification.

Please read the alarm information on the package and in the instructions that come with the carbon monoxide alarm. Know that if it is a U.L. 2034 Listed product (or CSA 6.19 Listed), it is a high level alarm that has been tested to alarm no sooner than 70 PPM at the lowest (the alarm must resist for one hour when above this level) and when over 400 PPM before 15 minutes at the highest concentration, after resisting alarming for 4 minutes when over this level.

Know when your fire department and emergency responders begin wearing their breathing apparatus and what their civilian evacuation levels are for carbon monoxide; it may be as soon as the gas is present in your presence. Pregnant women, infants & children, people with heart & respiratory struggles, those suffering depression or chronic headaches and all people of vulnerable health should be alerted as soon as the gas begins to concentrate, around 10 PPM (parts per million) or lower.

You most likely need a low level carbon monoxide detector to sound off when carbon monoxide hazards are just beginning, not after you’ve been exposed to levels that make you have headaches, flu-like symptoms, increased tiredness, heart stresses or worse.

Do not take risks with carbon monoxide. Take responsibility for the air you breathe and the combustion systems you are responsible for. If you don’t do it for yourself, do it for others, unless you think $45.00, high level protection is good enough.

Help prevent injuries and deaths; don’t guess about carbon monoxide. Measure carbon monoxide for safety and knowledge. The more you test the more you learn. GET BUSY

Measurement is continuing education at its best. Bob Dwyer, CSME Carbon Monoxide Safety

          Australia vs South Africa: Second ODI Preview      Cache   Translate Page      
Cricket ball and bails on field

South Africa and Australia renew hostilities when the sides meet at the Adelaide Oval on Friday. 

The Proteas completed an emphatic six-wicket win inside of 30 overs to condemn the Aussies to their seventh consecutive ODI loss – their worst ever ODI losing streak.

The beleaguered hosts at least have a bit of time to catch their breath before the sides meet again in Adelaide on Friday. Will they give a better account of themselves or will the South Africans wrap up the series with another win?

Australia vs South Africa | Friday 9 November | Adelaide Oval | 05:20

To Win Match
Australia 91/100
Tie 35/1
South Africa 91/100

Australia
It’s a long time since we’ve seen an Australian outfit look this submissive at home. Their top and middle order were crying out for the tenacity and skill that David Warner and Steve Smith would surely have brought.

Travis Head, Aaron Finch, D’Arcy Short looked all at sea against a sharp South African attack. With the Aussies reduced to 8-3, a big recovery was required from the middle order, however, only Alex Carrey (33) and Nathan Coulter-Nile (34) managed any sort of resistance.

Justin Langer doesn’t really have much in the way of batting options. Shaun Marsh is likely to come in considering how well he batted in the ODI series against England earlier this year. Chris Lynn will be the man likely to make way with Glenn Maxwell and Marcus Stoinis both providing handy options with the ball.

Lastly, Aaron Finch has to bowl Mitchell Starc up front. The 28-year-old is lethal at the top of the innings and is far more likely to unsettle Quinton de Kock and Reeza Hendricks, both of whom seemed comfortable dealing with the Josh Hazlewood and Nathan Coulter-Nile early doors.

It was refreshing to see Dale Steyn running in and hitting the Perth surface with all of the tenacity we’ve come to expect from the 35-year-old. Steyn’s resurgence following a number of injuries that threatened to end his career bodes well for the South Africans who would no doubt love to unleash him in England and Wales.

Lungi Ngidi, Andile Phelukwayo and Imran Tahir were also amongst the wickets while Kagiso Rabada – who remained wicketless – put in a solid shift and kept things tight. This is probably the same bowling unit that will do duty (injury permitting) in England and Wales so expect them to play again in the second ODI.

De Kock and Hendricks looked comfortable at the top of the order while Aiden Markram got some much-needed ODI runs. The top order will likely face are far sterner test in the second One Day International and will need to come good under pressure as the World Cup looms.

The Proteas have an excellent ODI record at the Adelaide Oval. They’ve won their last three matches at the ground, beating New Zealand by 93 runs, Sri Lanka by nine runs and Australia by eight wickets. Curiously, the last ODI the South Africans played at the ground was in 2009. Steyn – the only survivor from that team – claimed three wickets on the day.

Verdict: South Africa 91/100
This is probably one of the worst Australia sides we’ve seen in a long time. They showed absolutely nothing in Perth and should be smartly beaten by a far superior South African outfit.

          A Private War - Clip - Get Me Back In The Field      Cache   Translate Page      
In a world where journalism is under attack, Marie Colvin (Academy Award nominee Rosamund Pike) is one of the most celebrated war correspondents of our time. Colvin is an utterly fearless and rebellious spirit, driven to the frontlines of conflicts across the globe to give voice to the voiceless, while constantly testing the limits between bravery and bravado. After being hit by a grenade in Sri Lanka, she wears a distinctive eye patch and is still as comfortable sipping martinis with London’s elite as she is confronting dictators. Colvin sacrifices loving relationships, and over time, her personal life starts to unravel as the trauma she’s witnessed takes its toll. Yet, her mission to show the true cost of war leads her -- along with renowned war photographer Paul Conroy (Jamie Dornan) -- to embark on the most dangerous assignment of their lives in the besieged Syrian city of Homs. Based on the extraordinary life of Marie Colvin, A PRIVATE WAR is brought to the screen by Academy Award nominee and critically acclaimed documentary filmmaker Matthew Heineman in his pulse-pounding narrative feature debut.

Hallo an alle die von Travelbird-Insolvenz betroffen sind. Ich habe schon mal mit Travelbird eine Thailand Reise gebucht. Das war im Januar 2017. War damals alles SUPER! Mit großer vorfreude habe ich den Sri Lanka Urlaub gebucht. In 2 Raten habe ich bereits €1900,- Euro bezahlt. Auf SGR steht dass die Reise NICHT statt finden wird. Ich hoffe ich bekomme das Geld zurück. Denn solange der Betrag nicht mein Konto zurück gebucht wird, bleibe ich skeptisch. Bitte schreibt Eure Erfahrung hier rein. Ich werde sobald ich kontaktiert wurde von SGR hier meine Erfahrung schildern. Lasst uns unsere Erfahrungen austauschen. Schönen Gruß Jay

England odds-on for series win over Sri Lanka after Foakes nears debut century.

England closed on 321-8 on day one of the first Test against Sri Lanka as the tourists compounded what became a tough day for their hosts. Originally teetering on 103-5, Ben Foakes top scored with an unbeaten 87 not out to guide England past the 300 mark in their attempt to post a strong first innings total.  Given good support by Jos Buttler (38), Sam Curran (48) and Adil Rashid (35), Foakes is nearing a maiden Test century, and he is now just 13 short of the three-figure mark.  With their good start to the series in mind, England have been installed as the odds-on favourites to win the series at 19/20 with BetVictor, while Sri Lanka are 13/5, and a draw is 5/2. Clearly there has been good support for England after their rebuilding job on day one which has seen the bookies shorten their odds, while an impressive debut for Foakes with the bat has given bettors hope that England will be able to post strong scores in the usually spin-heavy tops in Sri Lank. With Sri Lanka still to bat though, this could change, with the wicket proving to be one that is not giving too much to support to the bowlers on day one, meaning the home side could bat for a few days and amass a big lead if England cannot find a way to skittle their hosts.

BetVictor - Sri Lanka vs England Series Winner betting odds: Sri Lanka - 13/5 Draw - 5/2 England - 19/20
