          OMV Presents the Sustainability Strategy 2025      Cache   Translate Page      

Growing demand for energy and accelerating climate change pose immense challenges for the energy sector. The key lies in finding the balance between climate protection efforts, affordable energy, and reliable supply. Alternative energy systems as well as economically viable and scalable technologies for industry and the private sector must be developed. Here, OMV will make a significant contribution to the sustainable energy supply of future generations.

OMV, the integrated, international oil and gas company based in Vienna, presents its OMV Sustainability Strategy 2025 today. The strategy is part of OMV’s Corporate Strategy 2025. Fifteen measurable targets have been set in the five focus areas: “Health, Safety, Security and Environment (HSSE)”, “Carbon Efficiency”, “Innovation”, “Employees”, as well as “Business Principles and Social Responsibility”.

Rainer Seele, Chairman of the Executive Board and CEO of OMV: “Our goal is to provide ‘oil and gas at its best’. We are convinced that a responsible approach to oil and the increased use of gas will support the energy transition. Together with other energies, oil and gas will secure the energy needs of the future.”

Health, safety, security and environment
Health, safety, security and the environment are the top priority for OMV.

In order to make its vision “Zero harm – No losses” a reality, OMV is committed to proactive risk management. Thanks to this, OMV occupies a leading position among its peers in the industry.

Building on this success, OMV has set the goal of stabilizing the lost-time injury frequency rate (= number of lost-workday injuries per million hours worked) at under 0.3 and maintaining its leading position in process safety in order to protect people and the environment.

Carbon efficiency
OMV is committed to the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement, the EU climate targets for 2030, and the climate and energy strategy of the Austrian Federal Government derived from these. The area of carbon efficiency defines OMV’s contribution to the creation of a lower-carbon energy system. Taking the figures from the baseline year 2010, by 2025 OMV aims to reduce the carbon intensity of its business activities by 19% by implementing the World Bank’s “Zero Routine Flaring by 2030” initiative, amongst other measures. The carbon intensity of the product portfolio should be reduced by 4%.

As predicted by the International Energy Agency, oil and gas will continue to play a crucial role in the global transformation of the energy mix in the coming decades. Oil remains a valuable and important raw material which, however, will be refined in petrochemical processes rather than burned. OMV focuses on high-quality refinery products such as low-emission premium fuels, and feedstocks for the chemical industry. Gas will play a decisive role in the energy transition. It can be used in almost all areas and also enables a rapid coal phase-out. In electricity production, gas emits 50% less carbon than coal. OMV will increase the share of gas in its portfolio to over 50% and also aims to double gas sales in Europe.

Innovation
In total, OMV will invest up to EUR 500 mn by 2025 in innovative energy solutions such as ReOil and Co-Processing, for a lower-carbon future. Establishing gas as an energy source of the future requires seeking out and analyzing technologies for the cost-effective use of climate-neutral gas. Innovative enhanced oil recovery projects strive to make oil production more environmentally efficient.

In the ReOil research and development project, waste plastics are converted back into high-quality crude, which can then be further processed into fuels or high-quality plastics. The pilot plant at Schwechat Refinery processes 100 kg of waste plastics per hour to produce 100 l of synthetic crude. OMV aims to develop ReOil into a profitable, industrial-scale process with a capacity of around 200,000 tonnes per year.

Co-Processing is an innovative method in which biogenic substances such as rapeseed oil and used food-grade oils are refined together with crude oil to produce diesel with a higher bio content. In contrast to conventional biofuel mixtures, Co-Processing improves fuel quality, in particular in regards to the energy content. OMV aims at raising the part of sustainable feedstock co-processed in the refineries to around 200,000 t per year by 2025.

Employees
OMV sees its employees as the key to its success. Diversity is a high priority, which is why targeted measures are also planned in this area. In particular, OMV is striving to increase the proportion of women at management level to at least 25% from the current level of 18%. Measures to this end include leadership and mentoring programs. Another goal is to keep the proportion of executives with international experience at 75%.

Business principles and social responsibility
OMV can look back on a long history of doing business in a socially responsible way and creating added value for society. The guidelines for these activities are the United Nations (UN) Global Compact, the UN Guiding Principles for Business and Human Rights, and the UN Sustainable Development Goals. By 2025, OMV will review its stakeholder dialog at all sites according to the UN’s effectiveness criteria and train employees in human rights and business ethics issues. Compliance with business principles also needs to be ensured at suppliers, which is why sustainability audits are increasingly being carried out.

          La distanza fra scienza e politica, un problema grave e antico      Cache   Translate Page      
Dmitrij Mendeleev, Aleksandr Borodin, Stanislao Cannizzaro, Friedrich August Kekulé, Charles-Adolphe Wurtz e Jean Baptiste André Dumas

(A cura di Adriano Zecchina, prof emerito di Chimica Fisica Università di Torino; Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei ; Accademia delle Scienze di Torino)

È sempre più comune sentire considerazioni preoccupate sulla separazione tra le due culture, cioè la cultura umanistica e quella scientifica. Altrettanto frequenti sono le raccomandazioni affinché questo gap venga colmato al più presto in modo da poter positivamente influenzare le decisioni politiche che richiedono, in un modo globalizzato e limitato, un approccio più interdisciplinare.

Il problema è antico e ne ho trovato più di una traccia nella storia. Un esempio importate è il congresso internazionale di Chimica tenutosi a Karlsruhe nel 1860. Credo con ragione che si sia trattato del primo congresso internazionale scientifico tenuto nella storia dell'umanità. Che sia stato un congresso di chimica non deve meravigliare poiché siamo nel periodo che precede di qualche anno la formulazione della tavola periodica.

Infatti pochi anni dopo (1869), Dmitrij Mendeleev pubblicherà la tavola periodica degli elementi che rappresenta una pietra miliare della scienza di tutti i tempi e la scacchiera sulla quale la natura e l'uomo hanno costruito l'infinità di materiali e molecole che ci circondano. Questo incontro fu la conseguenza delle continue scoperte di nuovi elementi, di nuove molecole e di nuove reazioni che caratterizzarono la prima metà del XIX e che richiedevano una completa presa di coscienza di un campo scientifico in rapida espansione.

Venne quindi proposto da scienziati delle comunità più forti e soprattutto dai tedeschi (tra cui Friedrich August Kekulé, uno dei fondatori della chimica organica, noto ancora oggi per i suoi contributi sul benzene, sui composti aromatici e sulla teoria della risonanza) e dai francesi (tra cui Charles-Adolphe Wurtz, un grande chimico francese noto ancora oggi per la reazione di Wurtz che porta alla formazione di legami carbonio-carbonio) di tenere un congresso internazionale.

Fu un vero trionfo della libertà e della conoscenza in cui gli scienziati presenti forse credettero di formare una comunità basata sulla universalità del pensiero scientifico in quanto capace di liberarsi dei fantasmi dell'alchimia e di travalicare le differenze di lingua, nazionalità e interessi materiali. Il congresso di Karlsruhe ha visto infatti la partecipazione di 140 scienziati di cui solo due italiani (Stanislao Cannizzaro e Angelo Pavesi), alcuni Russi (tra cui Dmitrij Mendeleev e Aleksandr Borodin), due austriaci e una maggioranza di francesi e tedeschi molti dei quali sono già stati ricordati. La partecipazione inglese fu numerosa ma abbastanza formale quasi a dimostrare un certo distacco dal continente.

Il congresso vide emergere la figura e il contributo di Stanislao Cannizzaro che tra l'altro fece conoscere l'opera di Amedeo Avogadro, sino ad allora quasi sconosciuto.

Al fine di non dare un'idilliaca immagine della scienza chimica ricordo che già allora (esattamente come oggi) i rapporti tra gli scienziati non furono sempre pacifici. Per esempio dopo il congresso di Karlsruhe, Borodin (anche grande musicista, autore del conosciuto Principe Igor) fu in conflitto con i molto famosi Kekulè e Wurtz che non avevano citato i suoi lavori.

Dopo centocinquanta anni oggi direi: tutto normale anche se gli strumenti di comunicazione sono divenuti immensi. Comunque non si può negare che l'idea di un congresso come quello di Karlsruhe sia stata, oltre che importante e innovativa, generosa e di carattere universalistico (come tante altre che sono venute poi in seguito nel mondo scientifico e intellettuale). È tuttavia incredibile come questo incontro tra scienziati di diverse nazionalità europee sia avvenuto in un periodo di guerre sanguinose tra i loro stati.

Tra quelle appena precedenti più vicine alla data del congresso basta citare quella di Crimea (1853) condotta contro l'Impero Russo da un'alleanza composta da Impero Ottomano, Francia, Regno Unito e Regno di Sardegna e che è stata causa di un numero di morti molto elevato (c'è chi riporta un milione) e che, per la sua estensione dal Baltico, al Mar Nero e all'Estremo Oriente, somigliò ad una guerra "quasi" mondiale anche per l'impiego di armi mai usate prima, quali i nuovi pezzi di artiglieria francesi.

In quella guerra, durante l'assedio di Sebastopoli, fu proposto anche l'uso di proiettili contenenti cianuro. Il primo ministro inglese Lord Palmerston non era contrario ma la marina militare si oppose obiettando che si trattava di "un modo pessimo di fare la guerra tanto quanto avvelenare i pozzi del nemico" (pratica invero antichissima).

Appena un anno prima del congresso (1859), Francia e Regno di Sardegna (per l'Italia) da una parte e impero di Austria-Ungheria dall'altra si erano scontrati a San Martino e Solferino in una delle più cruente battaglie del secolo XIX (circa 40.000 morti in un solo giorno). Altre battaglie seguiranno prima della fine del secolo, battaglie che invece di risolvere i problemi tra le nazioni saranno preparatorie delle due guerre mondiali del secolo XX.

Tra queste battaglie è da citare il conflitto tra Prussia e Impero austriaco (1866) e la terribile guerra franco-prussiana (1870-71) che si concluse con la sconfitta della Francia a Sedan, la caduta di Napoleone III e la unificazione della Germania. Il numero dei morti complessivi fu di circa 200.000. Mi pare del tutto evidente che i gruppi dirigenti tedeschi e francesi abbiano obbedito a principi molto diversi da quelli che hanno animato il congresso di Karlsruhe. I gruppi dirigenti tedeschi hanno infatti descritto questa guerra alla stregua di un passaggio verso l'unificazione e la grandezza tedesca. Quelli francesi invece come un argine alla emergente strapotenza germanica, concetti che sentiremo ripetere nel secolo successivo.

Non sapremo mai come reagirono e reagiranno di fronte a queste guerre i molti scienziati francesi, tedeschi, inglesi, russi, italiani etc che avevano partecipato al congresso del 1860. Sospetto che tutti tornarono ai loro posti e alle loro carriere limitando il loro pensiero al solo ambito della scienza o a attività patriottiche. Penso che ragionassero come le loro classi dirigenti e che si sentissero sopratutto patrioti.

Questo pone un altro problema: quanto questi intellettuali della natura (chimici in questo caso ma credo che il fenomeno sia generale) che nel 1860 si riunirono per scambiarsi informazioni fondamentali e universali e che tanto hanno contribuito e contribuiranno alla ricchezza delle nazioni erano coscienti della situazione politica?

Sullo sfondo una rara foto della guerra di Crimea. In alto da sinistra a destra ci sono i ritratti di Dmitrij Mendeleev, Aleksandr Borodin, Stanislao Cannizzaro, Friedrich August Kekulé, Charles-Adolphe Wurtz e Jean Baptiste André Dumas. Il totale dei partecipanti fu 140.

Io penso che alcuni la ignorassero del tutto mentre la maggioranza facesse riferimento a verità e interessi ritenuti più profondi quali patria, religione, lingua e ricchezza etc del tutto estranei all'universalismo della cultura scientifica. In conclusione essi non misero mai in discussione i principi e gli interessi più profondi delle proprie comunità.

Dall'esperienza che ho accumulato partecipando a tanti congressi scientifici internazionali, sono quasi certo che di argomenti politici si sia parlato ben poco anche nel secolo XX, secolo che ha visto due grandi guerre mondiali. Dopo un breve e forse superficiale esame della storia sono giunto alla conclusione che questa dicotomia tra scienza e politica è stata ed è sempre presente. Non so se questo sia limitato solo ai cultori delle scienze naturali. Penso che tutto ciò sia conseguente al predominio di principi religiosi, linguistici e nazionalisti che spesso nascondono gli interessi pratici della propria nazione e del proprio gruppo sociale.

Del resto il grande scrittore russo Lev Tolstoj, indignato per quella che lui considerò come una guerra patriottica contro un aggressore, partecipò all'assedio di Sebastopoli e ne trasse l'ispirazione nel 1855 per i Racconti di Sebastopoli. Dalla parte inglese il tutto fu celebrato in vari film epici tra cui quello intitolato "la Battaglia di Balaclava".

Tutto ciò mi suggerisce una domanda: è cambiato o sta per cambiare qualche cosa dopo quasi due secoli? Forse sono pessimista ma non mi sembra proprio, anche se i potenziali conflitti insiti nella globalizzazione sono incombenti. Il tutto in presenza di armi di una potenza militare e distruttiva senza precedenti e di un galoppante problema climatico da noi stessi provocato, fatti che richiederebbero un urgente rafforzamento del legame tra le basi scientifiche e umanistiche della cultura al fine di contribuire a creare una coscienza politica più lungimirante e saggia.


          A Bruxelles con un nuovo impegno sulla manovra entro dieci giorni      Cache   Translate Page      

Un nuovo impegno per l'Ue entro dieci giorni: forse un documento di bilancio rivisto e corretto dopo la bocciatura della Commissione europea o forse una lettera. Comunque un'inversione di rotta da consegnare all'Europa prima del consiglio europeo del 13 e 14 dicembre, segnalano fonti di governo ad Huffpost. Il tempo stringe, i toni tra Roma e Bruxelles sono passati dagli insulti alla trattativa, il governo Conte tratta e vuole chiudere. Obiettivo: evitare la procedura di infrazione sul deficit legata al debito che potrebbe scattare il 19 dicembre, se tutti gli sforzi andassero a monte.

I dettagli dell'accordo sono ancora da definire, mentre a Bruxelles si svolge una riunione dell'Eurogruppo che, nelle sue conclusioni finali, conferma ancora la bocciatura della Commissione: "Sosteniamo la valutazione della Commissione Ue e raccomandiamo all'Italia di prendere le misure necessarie a rispettare le regole del Patto di stabilità". Ma - dettaglio non da poco - nelle conclusioni della riunione dei ministri della zona euro non c'è accenno esplicito alla procedura di infrazione contro l'Italia. E' un altro segnale della trattativa in corso.

"Siamo nel pieno periodo di approvazione della legge di bilancio, quindi stiamo valutando tutti gli emendamenti. Sto lavorando a tempo pieno per quanto riguarda l'interlocuzione con le istituzioni europee, ci stiamo lavorando a tempo pieno -questa mattina, stasera, domani - credo che nel volgere di qualche giorno avremo un ulteriore passaggio con le istituzioni europee", dice Conte, a margine di una conferenza stampa a Palazzo Chigi. "Confido di poter pervenire a quello che è il mio massimo auspicio, il mio grande obiettivo", ovvero una "soluzione condivisa per evitare la procedura di infrazione".

Secondo quanto riferiscono all'Huffpost fonti di governo, l'idea che si fa strada è di ridurre il deficit previsto al 2,4 per cento nel 2019. Le previsioni più ottimistiche dell'ala più incline al dialogo nell'esecutivo Conte puntano al 2 per cento, che è quanto chiede al minimo la Commissione per evitare la procedura di infrazione di fatto già 'apparecchiata' e che, senza correzioni, "va avanti", avverte Pierre Moscovici. Quota cento, il provvedimento sulle pensioni caro a Matteo Salvini, potrebbe diventare una 'una tantum' che risolva i problemi legati alla riforma Fornero (esodati), ma che di fatto salvaguardi quella riforma in quanto è l'unica riforma strutturale italiana apprezzata a livello europeo. Scomporla - fanno notare gli interlocutori europei - vorrebbe dire rimettere a rischio il sistema. Il reddito di cittadinanza, meno inviso a Bruxelles, invece verrebbe ristretto al massimo, ad una platea ridotta.

Il diavolo sta sempre nei dettagli e nessuno al governo si dice certo dell'accordo fatto. Tanto più che Salvini sta ancora chiedendo che 'quota cento' mantenga almeno una parte strutturale, altrimenti gli sarebbe difficile difendere la manovra di fronte agli elettori. Però anche i toni di Salvini sono diventati decisamente più morbidi.

"Smontare la Fornero è un mio preciso impegno", dice il vicepremier leghista arrivando al Parlamento europeo per incontrare i suoi eurodeputati prima della serata alla festa di 'politico.eu', giornale online che gli assegna il premio di leader più influente dell'anno. Però poi aggiunge: "Lo faremo rispettando tutti i parametri. Il diritto al lavoro e il diritto alla pensione vengono prima di tutti i decimali e di tutti gli scogli". Salvini si mantiene alla larga dalle polemiche, accuratamente. Non si scalda nemmeno quando gli fanno notare che i commissari europei possono andare in pensione con soli dieci anni di attività. In altri tempi avrebbe approfittato per attaccare. Oggi no. Oggi l'Europa non è più un affare da smontare ma: "Il nostro obiettivo è entrare in queste istituzioni per ridare vita a un bellissimo sogno", dice Salvini.

Ora la trattativa è nelle mani del presidente del Consiglio Giuseppe Conte, come hanno messo nero su bianco ieri i due vicepremier Salvini e Di Maio in una nota congiunta. Ed è per questo che il nuovo impegno per Bruxelles arriverà qui in Europa in tempo per il consiglio europeo di metà dicembre. Dovrà essere una "correzione credibile della manovra e un impegno chiaro e indiscutibile del governo": è questo che chiedono da Bruxelles a Roma.

Per il capo del governo, il consiglio europeo di fine anno sarà l'occasione per dimostrare ai partner europei gli sforzi fatti: ad Angela Merkel ed Emmanuel Macron, i più aperti al dialogo, e agli olandesi, i finlandesi, gli austriaci, insomma i più arrabbiati per le spese italiane in deficit. In questo modo, al termine di settimane di lavoro con una triangolazione di sforzi insieme al ministro dell'Economia Giovanni Tria sul lato dei conti e il ministro degli Esteri Enzo Moavero Milanesi sul lato della diplomazia, Conte si prefigge di suggellare l'accordo in modo che il 19 dicembre la Commissione non scriva le sue raccomandazioni per l'Italia, propedeutiche all'apertura formale della procedura all'Ecofin del 22 gennaio.

Insomma entro la metà dicembre, suggeriscono fonti di governo al lavoro sulla trattativa, deve essere tutto fatto. Perché altrimenti il caso Italia finisce nel collegio dei Commissari del 19 dicembre (secondo l'ordine del giorno che decideranno i capi di gabinetto di Palazzo Berlaymont il 17 dicembre) e a quel punto sarebbe troppo tardi.

Oggi a metà giornata, Tria e il vicepresidente della Commissione Europea Valdis Dombrovskis si fanno fotografare insieme. Sorridenti, si stringono la mano al termine di un colloquio. "Comune volontà di trovare al più presto una soluzione al contenzioso sulla manovra tra Roma e Bruxelles", è quanto emerge dall'incontro. Certo, il 'falco' Dombrovskis non si lascia sfuggire l'occasione per rimarcare che "non basta solo il cambio dei toni, serve una correzione consistente". Ma si intuisce anche alla riunione dell'Eurogruppo che l'Italia non è più nella condizione di tirare la corda ancora: i dati parlano di recessione in arrivo, cosa che sconfesserà le previsioni di crescita del governo. E poi oggi la levata di scudi di Confindustria ha fatto suonare l'allarme proprio al cuore dell'esecutivo: soprattutto nella Lega, nel mirino delle critiche del suo elettorato al nord.

Un'atmosfera diversa, insomma. Moscovici già annusa la vittoria. "La Commissione - dice placido il commissario agli Affari Economici - è la signora del tempo". E' una citazione di Macron, che oggi non se la passa bene con le proteste dei 'gilet gialli' in Francia, tanto che il suo ministro all'Economia Bruno Le Maire è costretto a lasciare l'Eurogruppo in anticipo per tornare a Parigi per riunioni di governo dopo le violenze alle manifestazioni di sabato scorso. Ma Moscovici cita il Macron che vinse le presidenziali due anni fa e parlava così: "Io resterò il 'padrone dell'orologio': bisognerà che i media si abituino. Non mi agiterò per andare davanti alle telecamere solo perché la signora Le Pen va in tv".

          ‘The Nun’s Story’ Revisited      Cache   Translate Page      

Flipping through the TV channels the other day—an annoying habit those of us of a certain age have—I came across the 1959 movie The Nun’s Story. I had of course heard of the movie. It famously features a luminous Audrey Hepburn in the Most Beautiful Movie Nun category, a prize long held by Ingrid Bergman. The film was an enormous success, raking in millions as well as eight Academy Award nominations, including one for Hepburn. No winners, however.

The film was directed by Fred Zinnemann, who won Best Director Oscars for High Noon, From Here to Eternity, and A Man for All Seasons, every conservative Catholic lawyer’s favorite film. Zinnemann, a Jewish immigrant from Austria whose parents were murdered in the Holocaust, seems to have had a feel for Catholic stories. Carl Theodor Dreyer’s The Passion of Joan of Arc was reputedly his favorite movie, and he shared with Dreyer a fondness for close-ups. I found The Nun’s Story fascinating in parts, if interminable. It traces the spiritual struggles of Gabrielle van der Mal, the brilliant and pious daughter of a Belgian surgeon, from the late 1920s to World War II. On one level, it almost plays like a recruitment film for the consecrated life. It is a very serious, if sometimes monotonous, examination of traditionalist Catholic spirituality. We follow “Gaby” from postulant, to novice, to final vows, then on to missionary work as a nurse in the Belgian Congo, and finally back to Belgium as war descends. The movie runs a penitential two and a half hours, which feels almost as long as it takes Hepburn’s character, no longer “Gaby” but now Sr. Luke, to come to the realization that she was not destined to be a nun after all.

Van der Mal joins a nursing, teaching, and missionary order based on the Sisters of Charity of Jesus and Mary, which was founded in the early nineteenth century in Ghent. The order is enclosed, and follows a strict rule. The film goes to great, almost documentary lengths in showing life under the rule in the convent (Zinnemann got his start in documentaries). There is a martial tone and a stark beauty to these scenes, amplified by the seemingly corpse-like obedience of the nuns, the dramatic rituals of their common prayer and life, and their elaborate rites of initiation. Nuns prostrate themselves before the order’s superior general, played with an unflappable and imperious authority by the great Edith Evans, whose voice has a certain monarchical timbre. Each nun conducts an examination of conscience twice daily, recording her faults in a notebook. Sins and failings are confessed before the superior general and the entire congregation. Nuns are required to call out the faults of other sisters—“in charity,” of course—in front of the entire congregation. (Luke Timothy Johnson has written about why this practice has wisely been discontinued in today’s monasteries—“How a Monk Learns Mercy,” October 5, 2018.) The superior general determines the appropriate penance. On one occasion, Van der Mal is instructed to kiss the feet of all the nuns in the refectory and beg them for bread. Penance is meted out if a drink of water is taken without permission between meals, if milk is spilt, if a nun talks to anyone without permission during “the great silence.” A series of hand gestures, rather than speech, is the convent’s workaday vernacular. In order to practice humility, the novices are instructed to walk close to the walls of the halls, never in the middle, and never to hurry. Their hands must stay still and out of sight, except when nursing or praying. Other nuns are never to be touched. You pull on someone’s sleeve to get her attention. Individual friendships are forbidden. All mail is read by superiors. Throughout the day, life is regulated by the convent’s bells, “which are the voice of God.” Even if nursing a patient, a nun must stop when the community is summoned by the bells.

The purpose of these seemingly trivial disciplines, as the film explains, is to instill obedience and humility: to place God’s commands, as they are made manifest by the order’s rule and hierarchy, before merely human desires or needs. Mirrors are forbidden. “Divest yourself of the vanities of this world,” the novices are told. They must detach themselves from family and friends, from material things, and even from memories of their previous life. In doing so, they make room for the love of Christ in their hearts. They are told that sacrifice is the only test of our love of God. Spiritual perfection is the ever-elusive goal, and it requires the most rigorous practices. The life of a nun, explains the superior general, is thereby one of endless sacrifice, and in many ways goes against human nature.

You can say that again.

Balance was lacking in Sr. Luke’s formation, which mistakenly sought to expunge the self in pursuit of a higher good. As a consequence, her life and story can seem not only anachronistic but terribly misdirected.

What is remarkable about the film is its nuanced and sympathetic treatment of what many will consider to be some of Catholicism’s more extreme and bizarre teachings and practices. Sr. Luke’s ultimate decision to leave the order is not presented as a rejection of Catholicism or religious asceticism. The spiritual goods cultivated by the order are seen as valuable in themselves as well as instrumental in creating the sort of devotion and selflessness that enable the nuns to work with the desperately poor and chronically ill, and to endure the risks taken in establishing missions and hospitals in Africa. Sr. Luke wants to be this sort of person, this sort of nun, but struggles to reconcile the order’s demands for humility and obedience with the confidence and pride she takes in being a gifted student and exceptionally skilled nurse. She cannot submit to her superiors when what is demanded seems not only unreasonable but unjust. In one instance, she is asked to show humility by deliberately failing a university exam in order to bolster the confidence of a fellow sister (no, it doesn’t make sense). Unable to comply with this request, she is judged to be prideful, and subsequently given a less prestigious assignment as a discipline. She suppresses her “pride” again and again, only to have it resurface at crucial junctures. Her decision to leave the order is precipitated by the death of her father at the hands of the Nazis. She cannot forgive the killers, and that means she can no longer claim to be a bride of Christ, or possibly even a good Christian. She does not reject Christ’s teaching about loving our enemies, but simply realizes she is incapable of abiding by it. When she leaves the congregation she judges herself a failed nun, not a liberated woman.

The story behind the movie is equally interesting. It is based on the best-selling novel by Kathryn Hulme, which is the slightly fictionalized story of Marie Louise Habets, who spent seventeen years as a Sister of Charity of Jesus and Mary. Hulme and Habets met after the war when Hulme was working for a UN relief organization and Habets as a nurse tending to soldiers and refugees. At some point, Habets confessed that she was a “failed nun.” The two formed a bond and became inseparable, evidently living the rest of their lives as a couple in the United States. Hulme, raised Protestant and having been involved in a group of spiritual seekers surrounding a religious mystic in Paris before the war, converted to Catholicism in the early 1950s, presumably under Habets’s influence.

 

The website of the Sisters of Charity of Jesus and Mary suggests that the order no longer follows a rule as strict as the one Sr. Luke toils under in the movie. Much of the criticism of the Second Vatican Council, and now of Pope Francis’s interpretation of the council’s teachings, is based on the hope that it is possible to return in some way to many of the certainties and practices of the church depicted in The Nun’s Story (whose screenplay was evidently vetted and approved by the Vatican). However much one may appreciate the severe beauties and spiritual disciplines of the pre–Vatican II Church, one comes away from the film reminded of how far we are removed from that world. Watching the scene in the film where postulants enter the convent, leaving anxious family and loved ones behind, is like watching a contemporary movie depicting travel to another planet in a distant solar system. The convent’s door being closed with a heavy thud, and the mistress of postulants using her iron key to lock it, is like watching a rocket ship’s crew being hurled into deepest space. We are being taken on a voyage to another world, a world with a logic and beauty, but also dangers, uniquely its own.

The basic tension in Sr. Luke’s vocation is between the ambition and expertise she must possess to become a medical professional and the order’s demand that she understand herself to be “nothing” in order to draw closer to Christ. In an essay on the Seven Deadly Sins, Czesław Miłosz writes about the inescapable paradox inherent in the sin of pride, which he refers to using the Latin term superbia. “Pride and self-assurance are indispensable for the poet who wishes to achieve something and not retreat from his path,” he confesses. Its consequences, however, are of course “both negative and positive.” There can be no excellence if we don’t take pride in our work, but if pride becomes the principal motivation we have indeed lost our way. That balance was lacking in Sr. Luke’s formation, which mistakenly sought to expunge the self in pursuit of a higher good. As a consequence, her life and story can seem not only anachronistic but terribly misdirected. Yet we should not pretend the post–Vatican II Church has found a better balance in its often-unexamined celebrations of the self. We are still finding our way forward, and it is hubris to condescend to the past.


          ‘The Invention of the Antichrist’      Cache   Translate Page      

In the 1920s and ’30s, Karl Barth, the renowned Swiss Reformed theologian, began what became a decades-long critique of the important Polish-German Jesuit, Erich Przywara. But with the rise of fascism, their disagreement soon reached beyond the theology classroom and took on some of the confessional tensions of Reformation-era contests. Barth, looking at the growing appeal of Nazism, held that humanity retains little of the goodness it had before the Fall. Przywara, though forcefully anti-Nazi, was less bleak. Their debate went on for decades, and though much of it took place under the shadow of war and genocide, it ended up in a surprisingly hopeful place.

Karl Barth (1886–1968), the son of a Basel theology professor and violinist, was educated in the liberal Protestantism of the day, which followed Friedrich Schleiermacher (1768–1834) in emphasizing religion as private, inner feeling. Barth rejected this view when he saw Christians claim divine support for their side in World War I. His own teachers, including the prominent theologian Adolf von Harnack, signed a 1914 declaration supporting the German war effort. If this is how Christians interpret God’s Word when left to their own inner feelings, Barth decided, then the Word will be tweaked to suit private and political advantage. He concluded that humanity could not be guided by its feelings. We must instead adjust our thoughts and feelings to God’s revelation in Christ and Scripture. Barth developed his strong Christology in his thirteen-volume Church Dogmatics (1931–1967), and his views on humanity’s sinfulness became the linchpin in his debate with Przywara. Barth was also the principal author of the Barmen Declaration (1934), urging Christians to resist Nazism. He imprudently sent the letter directly to Hitler. In 1935, he was forced to leave Germany and took a position at the University of Basel, where he remained for the rest of his life.

Przywara (1889–1972), the son of a Polish father and German mother, was educated in music and theology in the Netherlands, taught in Austria and Germany, and was a rising star in Catholic thought when he, like Barth, began protesting fascism. In 1933, he explained that the Christian “Kingdom” was absolutely incompatible with the Third Reich. In 1934, while Barth was writing the Barmen Declaration, Przywara argued against church accommodation of Hitler’s government. By 1935, the Nazis had him under surveillance, eventually closing down his work and causing medical and emotional problems from which he never fully recovered. He nonetheless remained prolific through the 1960s, writing forty books and eight hundred articles and reviews, and influencing such thinkers as Karl Rahner and Josef Pieper.

It was Przywara’s work on human nature that provoked Barth’s initial criticism. Przywara set out his ideas in his 1926-7 Polarity and more fully in his 1931 Analogy of Being. But it was not Przywara who first came up with the idea that human nature partakes analogously of God’s “being.” That idea began with Thomas Aquinas. Its premise was that God is the ground and reason for everything. There could have been nothing at all, but instead there’s something; and the reason that there’s something is God. One might say God is what makes existence itself possible, from the existence of time to the existence of peaches. So something of God, the source of existence, can be found in everything and everyone that exists. God, Aquinas wrote, is “intimate” within us. In the charmed phrase of German theologian Christian Link, God cannot be found in the world any more than Charles Dickens can be found in his novels, yet he is there throughout and is the reason they exist.

But of course God is also radically different from humanity. We are material beings; he is immaterial. We live in time; he is outside time. Nevertheless, there is a kind of kinship between us. As Scripture puts it, we are made in his “image.” Or as Przywara puts it, following Aquinas, we are “analogous” to the divine “being.” Drawing on both Aquinas and Augustine, Przywara held that God is both “in us” and “beyond us.”

One important consequence of this is that, even after the Fall, humanity retains something of our original kinship with God. Because of our intimacy with God, we have the capacity to understand his Word. Przywara was careful to say what this does not mean. It does not mean we can develop moral living in our own way solely through human abilities. But we do have the capacity to grasp God’s way as it is revealed in Scripture. So grace comes to us “doubly,” through God’s redemptive work and through our created capacities to follow his Word in our worldly activities—for instance, in fighting for love and justice against Nazism.

This was what Barth would not countenance. In his 1931 Christian Dogmatics I, he called Przywara’s analogy of being “the invention of the Antichrist” and declared that “because of it one cannot become Catholic.”

 

For Aquinas and Przywara, what remains after the Fall is human nature, analogous of God. For Barth, what remains is God’s grace.

But this is not where the debate really began. In 1929, Barth had invited Przywara to lecture to his seminar on Aquinas at the University of Münster and, again, in 1931 in Bonn. The 1929 course protocols show that Barth’s reception was warm. In a letter to the Swiss theologian Eduard Thurneysen, Barth called Przywara’s presentation “a masterpiece.” Yet in two lectures later that year, he began to criticize Przywara’s position.

Barth’s issue was fallenness. He thought Aquinas’s “analogy of being” was a dangerous idea because it placed fallen humanity too close to God. Przywara, Barth said, aggrandized humankind, allowing us to imagine ourselves as “like” God, and therefore capable of acting rightly on our own. Any look at modern European history should dispel that illusion. In Barth’s view, the analogy of being downplayed God’s otherness. The only real bridge between humanity and the wholly other God is Jesus, fully human and fully divine. But the analogy of being suggests that human nature itself offers us another bridge to God. It suggests that, because we are in God’s image, we can understand God’s nature just by using our natural capacities.

Barth could not accept this. All we know of God and world, he insisted, comes from his Word and revelation in Christ, not from reason or other natural capacities. This knowledge is not “given to us in the givenness of history.” If we could figure God and the world out on our own, the Gospel would be reduced to a kind of public-service announcement reminding us to do what we already know we should.

This was also Barth’s objection to Augustine, whose work substantially influenced Przywara. Augustine included good works (along with grace) in the path to redemption. Barth feared that this implied a continuity between human efforts and God’s saving acts, whereas, in his view, grace and human effort are opposed. To save us, God sets “a barrier against all that is our own action” and “cuts against the grain of our existence.” The ugly grain of our existence was on full display in the politics of the day. Despite their supposed kinship with the Creator, human beings in Europe were flocking to fascism. If this was not evidence of man’s radical depravity after the Fall, what would be? Between December 1935 and March 1936, the Nazi police put Przywara’s offices at the journal Stimmen der Zeit (Voices of the Day) under surveillance and closed it permanently in 1941.

Przywara was puzzled by this line of argument. How did we get from Augustine and Aquinas to Hitler? Przywara had already written in 1927 that the analogy of being doesn’t suggest an undue similarity between humanity and God. It means only that the wholly other God reveals something of himself both in revelation and in creation. This means that our God-created humanity and God’s revelation cannot be altogether opposed as Barth had suggested they should be. They work together. To use the traditional formulation, “Grace does not destroy but supports and perfects nature.” Przywara repeated: grace comes “doubly,” through God’s revelation and the human capacity, endowed by God, to receive that revelation.

Barth, for his part, continued to insist that grace came singly, through revelation alone, but this yielded an unintended consequence. If we can rely on nothing in our created nature to understand revelation, how do we know that we understand it right? How do we know that our moral judgments, based on interpretations of Scripture, are sound?

Barth had painted himself into the same kind of corner that Immanuel Kant had. Kant had claimed that the human mind comes equipped with preset categories like length and time that we project onto the world. Because our minds conceptualize things as having length and enduring in time, we project those features onto the world “out there,” but the human mind has no direct access to that “outside” world. It produces only internal images—a “home screening,” in the theologian John Betz’s wonderful phrase. So how do we know whether that home screening is accurate? Like Kant’s philosophy, Barth’s theology seems to isolate fallen humanity from God—or at least to prevent us from knowing if we are understanding his revelation the way he intends for it to be understood. Perhaps another bridge between God and humanity—one that would allow him to communicate his will to us—was needed after all.

In spite of this weakness in Barth’s argument, his critique did prod Catholics to clarify their own positions. Gottlieb Söhngen, influential in advancing the career of Joseph Ratzinger, emphasized that we are like God only analogously: the analogy of being kept the proper distance between God and his creation. On the other hand, he worried that Barth’s position ruled out the proper closeness. It would turn whatever relationship we had with God into what he called “a purely external allocation”—an add-on rather than something foundational to human existence. No one, including Barth, wanted to say that. Everyone agreed that our relationship with God was a constant feature of the human condition. So what the analogy of being allowed us to understand, according to Söhngen, was our own nature, not God’s. To understand anything about God, we needed revelation. This was a small move toward Barth and away from Przywara, who held that our nature as creatures in God’s image does permit us knowledge of him.

Would Barth be persuaded by Söhngen’s overtures? In Church Dogmatics II, Barth conceded that if Söhngen was right, “then naturally I must withdraw my earlier statement that I regard the analogia entis (the analogy of being) as ‘the invention of the Antichrist.’” But somewhat cagily, Barth added that he wasn’t sure Söhngen’s views represented those of the Catholic Church: “I am not aware that this particular doctrine of the analogia entis is to be found anywhere else in the Roman Catholic Church.” In a sense, Barth was right. Never having been called upon to defend Aquinas’s analogy of being against a critique like Barth’s, the church had not yet laid out a thorough, modern explanation of it.

Hans Urs von Balthasar, Przywara’s student and the friend who, in 1947, brought Przywara to Switzerland to recover from maladies provoked by continuous Nazi surveillance, took up the challenge. In The Theology of Karl Barth, Balthasar defended the analogy of being, explaining that God’s transcendent otherness is undiminished by his intimacy in us. It is “a suspended middle” between an absolutely transcendent, unknowable God and an immanent, knowable God. Balthasar believed that after the publication of his and Söhngen’s books “Barth’s attitude gradually changed” to accept the analogy of being “within the context of an overarching analogy of faith.”

Was he right? No one can be sure. Barth did not discuss the analogy of being in any book written after Balthasar’s work was published. In his final years, Barth confessed to having said “nasty” things about the analogy of being. But at Princeton in 1962 and at Tübingen in 1964, he maintained his opposition to Przywara’s Analogy of Being.

Yet in his late works, Barth did incorporate a different sort of analogy into his own theology—not the analogy of being but of being-in-Christ, in his grace. He recognized that, without some analogical connectedness to God, we could have no basis on which to choose one sin-distorted interpretation of Scripture over another. To avoid relativism and hopelessness, Barth wrote in Christian Dogmatics III that humanity is created with the capacity, even disposition, to receive God’s Word and grace: our “being and nature…is destined, prepared, and equipped” for grace. This preparedness remains even after the Fall.

For Aquinas and Przywara, what remains after the Fall is human nature, analogous of God. For Barth, what remains is God’s grace. Because God was determined to redeem us all along and this determination always remained “in” us, we are equipped to receive Christ and Scripture and be redeemed. Moreover, because humanity is created to receive God’s Word, each of us can be a partner in God’s grace. While we cannot add anything to that grace, our faith can bear witness to God’s determination to save humanity. The one who bears witness in this way refers “not to himself, but to God who points him to his neighbor.”

This was a far more optimistic outlook than might have been anticipated from Barth’s oft-repeated opposition to Przywara. Looking at humanity’s violent record, Barth was right to insist that we could not be left to our own devices. Przywara replied, But we are not alone: our very nature connects us to our Creator. This prodded Barth to develop his own understanding of how God makes it possible for us to receive his revelation. In the end, Barth—for all his insistence on human sinfulness—did recognize that God must have given us something that allowed us to understand and respond to his Word.

          San Francisco Chamber Orchestra Rings in the New Year With Beethoven's Triple Concerto in C Major      Cache   Translate Page      

The San Francisco Chamber Orchestra will ring in the New Year with Beethoven's Triple Concerto in C Major for Piano, Violin, Cello and Orchestra, Opus 56. This unusual concerto written in 1804 was a time of unbelievable creativity for Beethoven. During this period, he was composing Symphony No. 3, began the Waldstein Sonata, and made sketches for the Appassionata Sonata and for his opera Leonore (later renamed Fidelio). Beethoven composed his Triple Concerto for his pupil and patron, the Archduke Rudolph of Austria, who was a pianist and amateur composer.

Beethoven's choice of piano, violin and cello is unprecedented in the literature. The music is expansive, relaxed and agreeable combining the scale of Beethoven's grand concerto style with instrumental dialogues among the soloists in a manner more typical of chamber music. The Delphi Trio joins SFCO for this performance. They are known for their deeply communicative "spot-on ensemble playing and a beautifully blended sound" (San Francisco Classical Voice) and for capturing "those evocative qualities that one would associate with the best of lyric poetry" (San Francisco Examiner). The program also includes the Overture to Haydn's opera L'isola disabitata. The Overture, sometimes referred to as a miniature symphony, is a fine example of Haydn's Sturm und Drang style. This style refers to a practice of releasing sudden, wild emotion which is given free expression in contrast to the enlightenment aesthetic value of emotional control and rationalism.

Soprano Christine Brandes rounds out the program with three of Mozart's most famous concert arias: Vado, ma dove, K. 583, Bella mia fiamma, K. 528 and Ch'io mi scordi di te, K. 505. Brandes is noted for her crystalline voice and superb musicianship, bringing her committed artistry to repertoire ranging from the 17th century to newly composed works. She enjoys an active career in North America and abroad, performing at many of the world's most distinguished festivals and concert series.

The concerts will be performed at the Herbst Theatre in San Francisco on December 30 at 3:00pm, at 7:30pm on New Year's Eve at Hertz Hall in Berkeley, and on New Year's Day at 3:00 at First United Methodist Church in Palo Alto,

Performances are free to the public on a first-come, first-served basis, with reserved seating for members. General admission beings fifteen minutes prior to performance time. More information about the concert and how to become a member may be obtained at www.theSFCO.org or by calling 415-463-6710.

          Stefan Posch extends contract until 2022      Cache   Translate Page      

Bundesliga club TSG Hoffenheim have prematurely extended Stefan Posch's contract by a further two years. The Austria U21 international's new deal runs until 30 June 2022.

"Stefan is a quick and tough-tackling defender who is calm, composed and reliable with the ball at his feet," said Alexander Rosen of the 21-year-old, who left his native Austria to join the TSG Hoffenheim academy in 2015 and signed his first professional contract with the Kraichgau club two years later in the summer of 2017. The sporting director believes Posch's promotion from the youth ranks to the senior squad via the U23s to be "a clear example of how our young players can mature step-by-step and in a relaxed setting". Additionally, he sees it as "a clear signal that the doors will always be open for talented youngsters in our academy, even if it has becoming slightly more difficult to establish oneself in the Bundesliga team due to the strong development within the senior squad".

"TSG offers me the optimal conditions to continue my development at the highest level. Thanks to my first appearances with the senior team and the club's ongoing work with young players, I've also been able to draw increased attention to myself in my homeland," said Stefan Posch, whose medium-term aim is to make his full international debut for Austria. The 1.88m-tall man from Styria has represented his country at all youth levels starting from the U16s and has previously made seven appearances for the Austria U21s. A fortnight ago, he scored the decisive goal as the Austrian youngsters beat their Greek counterparts 1-0 in the play-offs to book their place at the European U21 Championship. Posch is already on the radar of national team coach Franco Foda, who recently included the player on his standby list ahead of the November Nations League fixtures.

Posch made his senior debut for TSG Hoffenheim at the end of September 2017 in a 2-1 Europa League defeat to Ludogorets. The youngster now has played 13 times in the Bundesliga, twice in the Champions League, four times in the Europa League and once in the DFB Cup.

Maeve Cohen, Co-director of Rethinking Economics, talks with EconTalk host Russ Roberts about her organization and its efforts to change economics education. Cohen, who co-founded the Post-Crash Economics Society, argues for a more human-centered approach to economics that would be less confident in its policy prescriptions and more honest about the significance of its underlying assumptions.

Intro. [Recording date: November 8, 2018.]

Russ Roberts: Before introducing today's guest, I want to correct an error I made in a recent episode. At the end of the episode with Alan Lightman, I read a quote from Tom Stoppard's play Arcadia. And in the middle of that quote Stoppard's character quotes from the poem "She Walks in Beauty": 'She walks in beauty, like the night of cloudless climes and starry skies, and all that's best of dark and bright meet in her aspect and her eyes'. Four beautiful lines. I pointed out incorrectly that that poet of those lines was Shelley. In fact, it's Lord Byron. They overlapped almost exactly in their lifespan; but that's an inexcusable error, though. I apologize to Lord Byron. And it's a particularly bad mistake because Byron, while not an onstage character in Arcadia, he does get discussed a lot. So he feels like a character. I want to thank listener Larry Guthrie for pointing out my misattribution. We've corrected it in the Highlights.

1:28

Russ Roberts: And now on to today's guest. She is Maeve Cohen, the director of Rethinking Economics, an organization working to reform how economics is taught and understood. And, that reform is our topic for today.... So, how did Rethinking Economics get started?

Maeve Cohen: So, I went to university in 2012--so, quite soon after the global Financial Crisis. And I was also studying politics and philosophy. And it was quite astounding to me, the way that I was being taught these different subjects. So, politics and philosophy was looking at different ways that you could view these things, and drawing on different value bases that you could have and really exploring the discipline like that. Whereas economics was taught as this one way of thinking about economics as if it's fact, with no [?] critical analysis of anything that was happening. And, notably, no mention of the financial crash that had just happened and was affecting a lot of our lives. And so, me, and some fellow students, a group called Post-Crash Economics at the U. of Manchester, to try and reform the curriculum at Manchester. And, at the same time there were groups doing this--we found out after the fact--all across Europe, and now it's all across the world--who were similarly very discontent with the economics that they were learning and wanted to campaign for curriculum reform. So, now we are 53 groups in 25 different countries of students at universities campaigning for curriculum reform.

Russ Roberts: And, you were at Manchester, in England. I don't think your experience would be that much different from a student in the United States. I don't think that the Financial Crisis had much of an impact on how economics is taught in the United States, either. Which I, like you--I find it somewhat surprising. I'm not as shocked by it. I think I'm probably somewhat equally disturbed by that fact as you are, but maybe for different reasons, that we'll explore later on. But, I think what has happened--if I had to guess, and I'm not an expert on this, but if I had to guess--I think most textbooks have responded to it by, say, adding a chapter. They certainly haven't re-thought anything fundamental about the way the curriculum is approached. And, so, I don't think it's much different in the United States than it is there. I think it's the same problem. And, of course, part of the problem is the fact that when you become a professor of economics, as I was for 30 years, you aren't trained in how to teach. You are trained in the ideas of economics. So, the way most of us teach is we go back to our graduate notes, from our notes in the graduate classes we took--because we didn't save our undergrad ones or didn't take very good notes, most of the time--and then we try to dumb those down and match some textbook that we've adopted. I usually didn't have a textbook, didn't use a textbook. But I certainly was heavily influenced by my professors in what I thought was appropriate to teach. And I think that's probably true pretty much everywhere.

Maeve Cohen: Yeah. Yes. So, as a thing, contrast to the other disciplines that I was learning, in politics in particular we were giving reading lists, [?] on philosophy. Reading lists of lots of different thinkers exploring different ideas from different viewpoints. Whereas in economics, there's no reading list. You just get the Mankiw textbook and [?]--that's what makes up your class. And it doesn't encourage any sort of critical thought of it. It's just presented to you as this value-free science: that, this is what economics is; this is what economics always has been. Which--yeah--we feel doesn't produce the critical thinkers that we need. And when we are facing such stark economic crises like the global Financial Crash or like the ecological crises that we face, the [?] massive wealth and income inequality--yeah, this lack of ability to think critically about economics is, we feel, perpetuated in these problems.

6:01

Russ Roberts: I think most economists like to think of themselves as like physicists, but applying their tools to human beings instead of, say, atoms. And so, in physics, there would be no reason to read Newton. And so, similarly--because it's all subsumed. Everything that was right in Newton, we still teach; and everything that was wrong, we've dropped; obviously, there were things that were wrong but not capturing what we now know is a richer story. And we try to do that in economics as well. We say, 'Well, we don't have to read Adam Smith any more, because what was good in Adam Smith we've kept, and what was bad or wrong, we've rejected.' As if economics advances like physics does, through empirical testing and rejection of things that don't match the data. But, as I think you are arguing, that's really not what economics is doing.

Maeve Cohen: Yeah. So, economics is a social science, and it's impossible to get rid of the complexity of it. It's impossible to strip it down to, like, a linear equation or to say that this is what happens--so, this model works in the United Kingdom therefore it will work absolutely everywhere. It's just not possible to do that. And, obviously, economics has developed from there, and there's loads of really interesting and nuanced work going on in the world of economics; but the problem is, we do not teach that to our undergraduates. And undergraduates are incredibly influential. Like, most people who study undergraduate economics will not go on to do a Master's or a Ph.D. They will go on to work in a bank or lead a big business or work in the media--

Russ Roberts: or vote--

Maeve Cohen: or work around a policy table. And yeah, yeah, yeah. And they have this really basic knowledge of economics. It's not representative of the world, and isn't particularly helpful in a lot of really important scenarios. And it creates this sort of economic common sense within society which is actually not helping us address some of the most pressing problems of our time.

Russ Roberts: It raises an interesting question--and this is a side-note. But, you make me think about the fact that Psychology, which is a very popular undergraduate major in the United States and I think elsewhere--I wonder how, the way academic undergraduate psychology is taught in universities affects our daily lives through people believing certain things about how the world works that--might be true, but might not be. How we see ourselves. It's a really interesting, I think not fully-explored question about how undergraduate curriculum issues get transferred into daily life.

Maeve Cohen: Yeah. Definitely. And I think particularly with the discipline of economics. Because, economics is such an influential force within society. And, for example, if you are arguing for a policy--you've just had mid-term elections--you are arguing for a policy--most of these policies have to be backed up with economic reasoning. So, we have to be like, 'Yeah, but is it good for the economy?' And, so, what the sort of economic common sense is, within society, is really important. Because it allows, em, basically allows politicians to wield--and this is solved; maybe it's a different point about how economics is inaccessible and how a lot of the population are unable to engage with economics, so they have to sort of take this, this, this version of economics as given, because they are not encouraged to think about these things or it's not spoken about in a language that people can relate to or understand or relate to their lived experiences. But it creates this huge, hugely powerful discipline that's incredibly opaque. And that in turn can create massive democratic deficits. Which is another huge problem. So, I think: Yes, there is a problem, I'm sure in so many disciplines. Definitely Psychology; and that's really interesting. I hadn't thought of that. But because economics is such a powerful force in the world, I think it's particularly dangerous within[?] an economic curricula.

10:12

Russ Roberts:

Russ Roberts: And I agree. I think--even though we probably, you are going to see--we disagree on a lot of things; but so many we do agree on, which is I think extremely interesting. I want to summarize what I think are two of the key points that you've made so far that I think capture what I see as the approach that you are pushing. And again, I'm not--I'm totally in agreement with these. One is to make people aware that there are other schools of economic thought. In history. So, the history of economic thought, seems, should matter, as well as the diversity of thought in the current day. And then, secondly, the implication that it's value-free. Not--I think some of it is value-free, in the following sense. I think there are fundamental principles of human behavior that are agreed on by people on the Left and the Right. Even though they might disagree about what the implications of those fundamentals are, or how they get discussed in policy. So, for example, I think no matter what kind of flavor of economist you are, you might accept the fact that people respond to incentives. You might disagree about what the incentives are--

Maeve Cohen: Yeah.

Russ Roberts: You might disagree about the importance of monetary versus non-monetary incentives. I think economics of different political stripes can agree that much of what we see in the world we see around us is emergent rather than designed from the top down. Although there's, I think a lot of--there is some nuance there that people do disagree on. But the aggregation of behavior into what economics call markets is a shorthand for, um, how we interact, is useful. Now, we might disagree about how well they work. We might disagree about whether they should be left alone and what that actually means. But, to me, those are the two cornerstones of economics of any flavor. Which is: People respond to incentives. Which also implies that there is cost to action. There is foregone opportunities. Those two things, I think are undeniable. They have nothing to do with whether you are Marxist or neo-Keynesian or an Austrian. And then that--when we act, together, things happen that aren't just the sum of our individual actions. That there's a complexity that makes policy design challenging. And that we see all around us, that's hard to fully grasp without thinking about it in some depth. So: Do we agree on those things?

Maeve Cohen: Yeah. For sure. I think on the sort of complexity issue, yeah, I completely agree with you. I think that that is another issue that is not translated as well as it could be, in undergraduate curricula. Just, you are given a lot of, like, simple--well, not simple--they are quite complicated--but you're given a lot of problems that's, models, that don't really take complexity as the issue as well--yeah, they don't explain that as well as they could, I think. But, yes, I do agree with you.

Russ Roberts: Yeah, on that point, I once gave a talk to a group of Ph.D. economists--a high level, well-trained group of people. And I was talking about emergent order. And they were bored out of their minds. They said, 'Oh, look, we know all this: markets work.' And that wasn't my point at all. It turned out. But the way we have been trained as economists to think about complexity is: 'Oh, it's supply and demand, and we know how that works.' As if that stark, blackboard model--which I love, by the way: I have a lot of affection for supply and demand; I think it's a powerful, simplifying tool. But it is only a tool. It is only a simplification. It doesn't capture the richness of how our interactions actually work in the real world. It's a crude attempt to get at something that's important. But I think most economists think, 'Well, that is how--that's actually the real world.' And that's a terrible error.

Maeve Cohen: Yeah. No. Well, I definitely agree. Like, supply and demand, and the market, and all of these things are incredibly useful. And using these tools have helped economies. And--yeah--helped people achieve great things. And done a lot of good in the world. But, yeah, the point that I try and make and the point that we're about is that it's not the only tool that you can use and actually in some circumstances and for some problems it's really not useful at all. And if we are wanting economists, of people who are economically literate, to be creating a better world for us all, they need to know more than just that sort of--yeah, that simplistic model.

15:05

Russ Roberts: So, two of the things that are behind "Rethinking Economics," your organization, are, you call democratizing economics and economic pluralism. What do you mean by those terms, and why are they important?

Maeve Cohen: So, by 'pluralism,' we mean, um, yeah--exposing students to the different schools of thought that are out there. And that's--that's--yeah--looking at first Keynesianism, looking at feminist economics, looking at ecological economics. And, and, and looking at the values that underpin each, em, as well as looking at the values that underpin mainstream economics. And then, yeah, being able to engage with these schools of thought--where they've come from and where they've got to, why they think the way that they think. And what that means for policy implications. Em, and then for democratizing economics. So, this is something--em--I touched on earlier about how we have a whole population of people that aren't included in these economic discussions. So, they don't--economics is so jargon-laden and elitist that a lot of people aren't able to engage with it. And then we get all these policy recommendations, policy proposals backed up by economic reasoning[?], and people don't understand the reasoning, so they are voting for policies that they don't understand. And that creates this massive democratic deficit. On the democratizing economics point, we have actually, so, an assisted charity called--because we realized it's basically impossible to reform university curricula--and democratize economics at the same time. So, we have assisted charity now called 'Economy' who make--they are just based in the United Kingdom, but they do a lot of work on making economics accessible. And crash courses for adults. They do a lot of work in schools. And they have website that sort of de-jargons the news. So, we've stepped away from that a bit now because it was too big a task to do--

Russ Roberts: Well, let's talk about the curriculum. Because, I think--again, ironically, when you listed those, some of things, approaches, that people aren't exposed to--my first thought is: 'But those are wrong!' and of course, you look at some things I'd like to see more; and I think, 'But those are wrong.' And I think, one of the lessons--

Maeve Cohen: But in a way that's not really the point--

Russ Roberts: It's not--

Maeve Cohen: Like, you don't have to be a feminist economist to benefit from the fact that actually, by understanding by that theory works and how it gets to the conclusions that it gets to--that in itself is an exercise that is useful, that is an exercise that helps you think critically and think more creatively. It's not just learning something by rote. It's engaging with the core of what that theory is. So, we--yeah--so, for example, we champion, like, teaching students feminist economics, for example. But then we also champion teaching students Austrian economics. Which is like, on the political spectrum, the opposite side.

Russ Roberts: Yeah--

Maeve Cohen: Because, there's a lot can be gained from these insights. And a lot can be gained from just doing the exercise of just actually trying to understand, why, when you hold these assumptions to be true, that we get these outcomes. Compared to holding these assumptions to be true and getting these outcomes. They are exercised, in and of itself, will create better, more thoughtful economists, we feel.

Russ Roberts: Well, I agree with that. When I was saying, 'That's the wrong kind,' I was being a bit facetious--

Maeve Cohen: --yeah. Yeah.

Russ Roberts: satirical. But I think, you know, one of the lessons here is humility: that you, one, me, person, does not have access to The Truth. And I just say, as an aside: When listeners write me and say, 'You have to interview so-and-so, because he or she has this model of how the world works that's correct.' And I always want to say, 'Well, I always think'--there's no one model that's exactly right. And people who are going to around saying--you learn some things sometimes from those people. But, they are also a little bit dangerous, because--

Maeve Cohen: Mmmhmm--

Russ Roberts: they are evangelists. And evangelism has value, as long as you are aware that you are evangelist. I think a lot of evangelists don't realize that. In economics, anyway. I don't know--leave aside the religious piece of that. But--

19:24

Russ Roberts: So, I think it's extremely helpful to be aware that you don't have a monopoly on the truth, whatever your value system is. And, in principle, your organization has the opportunity to do that. But you do have, also, a direct--you are trying to build a curriculum, I understand, that would be the richer or different than the current standard one: you mentioned Mankiw, whose textbook--and it is very good textbook for describing a particular kind of economics. Greg [Mankiw] would disagree with that, I think. He would say, 'No, it's just the truth.' But, I'm sympathetic to your approach. What is your organization doing in the area of curriculum, design, or implementation?

Maeve Cohen: So, we do--so, as I say, we were born of--well we are a student movement. And we are working in different ways. So, we try and produce research that shows that there is a problem. So, we produced a book called the Econocracy that was looking at 7 different universities in the United Kingdom and examining their curricula. And then we have student groups in different countries that have done the same. Their universities--the groups in the Netherlands have done it; Norwegians have done it--there's individual universities have done it as well. The Danes are doing it. The [?] which are exciting. So we are trying to do that. And we try and create alternatives. So, we produced a reader--an introduction to pluralist economics that was edited by our students. So, that looked at 11 different schools of thought and that--the point of that was, because of this problem of a lack of reading lists, that could be something that could complement economic courses and could quite an easy win for professors: it's just like, 'This is in the university library. Explore these different ways of thinking about university--about economics--sorry.' And then the students can also learn that as a tool for learning about new schools of thought. But, with regards to creating a curricula--this is--we are not really prescriptive. We don't want to say, like--like you say, we don't want to be the people saying that this is the way that you've got to do it. Every single university is different. We are in 25 different countries, as I say; and different--different models and different ways of thinking of the economy, more suitable for different countries. So, we haven't created a curriculum. Firstly, because we don't have the capacity, the amount of time and effort and knowledge and all of those things that take--we are a compending[?] organization, so we don't have those resources. And we only have 5 members of staff, even though we have hundreds and hundreds of volunteers. But, all of us, our groups are autonomous groups. And some of them are working on developing curriculas at their own universities. And it's more of creating sort of broader strokes: these are the things that you need to include; these are, it's just like the starting point if you are going to teach undergraduates economics. Yeah, for example, History of Economic Thought is an essential part of that economic history, is an essential part of the--em. So, we haven't, and we aren't going to create a template curriculum for people, because we don't really think that that's the way to go. It's more of encouraging our students to compare[?] at their own universities and do the projects that they feel would be most beneficial to them. So, some of them will be creating curricula. And some of our students are currently teaching curricula at universities that they've created and off the back of their love of pluralism. But, yeah--it's not a sort of over-arching thing that we're creating.

23:17

Russ Roberts: So, you mentioned two things. One, very quickly, in passing I just want to emphasize the distinction and their individual importance, which is History of Economic Thought and Economic History--

Maeve Cohen: yeah--

Russ Roberts: It's remarkable how uninformed we all around about economic history. Certainly--I got my Ph.D. in 1981. And I think I was one of the last--I don't think it's true any more, but--this was at the University of Chicago--and we were required to take, I think two economic history classes. I doubt that's true any more. It's certainly not true at most universities, and maybe almost at none. And that's a shame. Although, it's certainly more important I think for undergraduates, and for, as you say, sort of everyday people who have a, who've absorbed some kind of economic worldview, either from their coursework or their, just the air around them, the zeitgeist, to have some understanding of economic history. And, one of the things I find depressing about the United States--I don't think it's--well, you'll tell me if it's true in the United Kingdom and elsewhere--but we have this, um, this thing called the Advanced Placement Exam where high school students can get credit for college level classes by taking an exam; and then they don't have to--in theory don't have to take a class, if they get a high enough score, when they get to college. And, those--I don't think I would do very well in those exams. Which is either--I don't know if it says something about me or the exam or both. But, you know, my kids took them. And they would come and ask me questions, you know, in practicing for those. And I--some of them, [?] I would just say, 'I have no idea.' And I would give the answer; and they would say, 'Well, that's wrong. It turns out it's 3. It's c, not b.' And I'd say, 'Beats me.' So, one of the--that's a problem. That's a little strange. But the point I want to make that's, beside that fact that it treats economics as like it's just a set of facts and results, like physics, is it's extremely free of any context or economic history or complexity about the point you made earlier: that something might work in this country; it might not work elsewhere. It treats everything as if, like, the law of gravity: that it will work in Pisa, Italy as well as Manhattan. And that's just not true. And it's a terrible encouragement to, I think, wrong thinking.

Maeve Cohen: Yeah. Yeah. I completely agree with all of that. The instance of multiple choice exams is--truly shocking. So, I was a [?] student. I left school at 16, and I didn't go to university until I was 25. And I had this idea of what university would be like: And university was going to be this place where everybody was talking openly with each other and examining their disciplines, and, like, bouncing ideas off each other--

Russ Roberts: [?] and dmahhhom[?], dmahhhom[?]

Maeve Cohen: And I got there and Econ 101, multiple choice exam was like--

Russ Roberts: [?]dmahhhom[?]

Maeve Cohen: this is nuts. This is not what I thought university would be. And it's quite depressing, really.

Russ Roberts: Yeah. That's a side-problem, I would say. Which is the focus on results rather than ways of thinking.

Maeve Cohen: Yeah. And it's really difficult--

Russ Roberts: And that's what multiple choice does.

Maeve Cohen: It's really difficult. So, particularly in the United Kingdom, well, now, now that we've got--tuition fees have risen dramatically in the last few years. And that's the main source of revenue for universities, so that they--they have huge amounts of students coming to study these courses. So, in my Econ 101, there was like 600 students. And it's a real, real problem. Like, how do you critically engage with 600 students? Like, how do you examine that amount of students? So, this is where the multiple choice exams have come from--

Russ Roberts: Yep--

Maeve Cohen: and I can completely understand the constraints on academics; and it must be--it's really hard to square the circle. But, I mean, but it's essential if you want a functioning society, I think.

Russ Roberts: Yeah. I taught Principles of Economics at UCLA [University of California, Los Angeles] to 350 people, and I--I made a few decisions at the beginning of the class. One was I would not use a microphone. Which was challenging. But it kept my energy level up. When you are going to talk in a room with 350 people, you better have a high energy level.

Maeve Cohen: Well, [?], yeah, yeah.

Russ Roberts: Because otherwise you start mumbling in front of the room; and 310 of 350 are sleeping. But the other thing I tried to do, which--I don't know if it worked or not but I think this is extremely important--is that I tried to have conversation about the questions we were looking at with those 350 students. Of course, you can't let every person participate. And most of them don't want to. But there were probably 30-50 of those students who would interact with me in one--30 or so in any one class. Or 20. And then, it wouldn't always be the same, every class. But it's not so much that only 20 people got to talk. Three hundred fifty people got to hear a conversation, just like we're having right now. And I think it's the exchange of ideas and the way of thinking like an economist which is so much more important than what's the ratio of the, what's the marginal rate, definition of the marginal rate of substitution, today, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah. And so, giving over--you know, when I was a teacher, the thing that used to bother me the most, the parallel I would make was to astronomy. So, in astronomy you have this unbelievable, magical, awesome, wondrous poetry of the nighttime sky. But that's not what you learn in astronomy. What you learn in undergraduate astronomy when I took it is the dumbed-down version of graduate astronomy. Which is a bunch of results which I could just spit back on an exam. Whereas, the life-changing classes in any field, or the ones that get you to see the world through a different lens--and that's what I think economics should be and often isn't. Which is tragic.

Maeve Cohen: Yeah. Exactly. And it really depresses me. I don't--I'm sure you've experienced this in your day, your apply[?] your whatever, and somebody asks you what you do, and you are like, 'Oh, I work in economics.' And they just go blank. And they are not interested. And there is this sense in society that economics is boring. People understand it's really important, but they also think it's boring. And it's like, 'Oh, my God, it's just not boring at all!' And then you talk to them a bit more in depth about it, and people are always engaged by--usually pretty engaged and excited. And it is--society has done this incredibly good job of making this incredibly dynamic and exciting discipline seem super-boring. And, that's--yeah--quite depressing for people like us, I'm sure.

Russ Roberts: Yeah. My favorite is, a woman was next to me on a plane, and she asked me what I was going to do, and I said to her I was an economist, and she said, 'That's too bad. My husband isn't here. He loves the stock market.'--

Maeve Cohen: oh, no--

Russ Roberts: And I wanted to say 'Well, that wouldn't have helped. I don't know much about the stock market.' And, but that's what people think. The other one I like is 'That must be handy around tax time.' Well, I hate filling out my taxes. And I'm not good at it. And that's what accountants and tax preparers do. Not economists. But, yeah....

Maeve Cohen: Yeah. I'm terrible at money--

Russ Roberts: Yeah. Exactly. Terrible--

Maeve Cohen: People always say to me, 'Oh, that's really funny because you're an economist'--

Russ Roberts: 'An economist'--

Maeve Cohen: Yeah.

Russ Roberts: It's not--yeah. I tried for a while to give a different answer. And I think I have forgotten: There was a period in my life where I would just, instead of saying I was an economist, I would, I would say something like--I forget what it was, but it might have been something like: 'Oh, what do you do?' 'Well, I'm interested in how things work from the bottom up rather than the top down, and how things emerge that are the product of our actions together but not any one person.' 'Oh, well, that's interesting. What does that mean?' Whereas, if you say you're an economist, it's over. Usually.

Maeve Cohen: Yeah.

Russ Roberts: It's usually the end of the conversation.

31:31

Russ Roberts: One of the things that gives me hope, and I don't know how you feel about it, and your organization, but certainly with the existence of the web today, people have access to so much more than what they are spoon-fed or force-fed by their professors. So, isn't that some cause for celebration?

Maeve Cohen: Oh, for sure. I mean, we wouldn't exist as a company--in fact, there's been iterations of companies doing similar stuff since the 1970s. I think one of the reasons why we've had such staying power is, yeah, because of the Internet. And because there is so much--when people get in touch with those, we can point them in the direction of loads of different resources. And we're talking [?] about exploring economics, which is, there's a network of, if German groups doing this same thing, and that this is one of their projects, and they have this website called 'Exploring Economics,' which has loads of online courses looking at different schools of thought, loads of different resources that we can point our students in the direction of; and yet it's, it's incredible. And we can communicate online. We can have a little reading group, discussion things, that are happening online. Yeah. It's--yeah--very grateful for the Internet.

Russ Roberts: And people can listen to EconTalk. Which--

Maeve Cohen: Exactly.

Russ Roberts: Hearing our voices right now is certainly taking advantage of the Internet. Almost certainly.

32:56

Russ Roberts: Before we leave some of these issues, I want to just go back to something you mentioned at the very beginning. You talked about how the genesis of your interest in these topics was in the aftermath of the financial crisis and that you were involved in something--the post-crash something--what was it?

Maeve Cohen: The Economic Society.

Russ Roberts: So, what do you feel, and what did you sense from people who were passionate about that at the time? What do you think was the mistake that was made, post-Crash? What was the opportunity that was missed, and certainly in the teaching of economics?

Maeve Cohen: Well, I think that after the Crash, lots of people went to study economics because it was so abundantly apparent that economics was super-important and was having a massive impact on people's lives. So, this is so, a perception of economics students that they--yeah, into the stock market and they just want to go and work in the city. But, actually, I don't think that that's true in general, but particularly at this time there was lots of people, and there are still lots of people going on to study economics because they want to do some social good. And, because of the way that it was taught to us as just this sort of abstract theory, that was completely detached from people and society, it lost a lot of those people along the way. Those people either became, em--they sort of forgot the reason they got involved in the first place. Or they dropped out or changed their major or whatever it is that they did. But I think the big mistake that was made after the Crash with economics education and the big mistake that's still being made is that there are lots of people that are--both the students are really thirsty for knowledge and want to do social good. And by detaching economics from people, which is how it is presented in most undergraduates, it's doing those people a disservice. And therefore doing society a disservice.

Russ Roberts: Yeah. There was an enormous interest, certainly here in the United States, I think after the Crisis. Because, we had had this prolonged period of economic--I would call it stability, slow or pretty good growth for a while--the recessions that we'd had were relatively small. Of course, people were affected by them. I didn't[?] they were small. But, for the economy as a whole, most individuals did pretty well. And there was nothing like this in our lifetime. And so, a lot of people I think did get a wake-up call. You know, one of them was John Papola, the filmmaker who contacted me, and we made the Keynes-Hayek rap videos. Really, those happened because--

Maeve Cohen: Hah, hah, hah, hah? Did you make that?

Russ Roberts: I did. With John.

Maeve Cohen: Oh, my God. That's great.

Russ Roberts: Thank you. But John--that wouldn't have happened without this film-maker--I was working in television at the time, started reading and thinking, 'I've got to figure out what's going on. Like, this is weird, this stuff.' So, I think a lot of people got galvanized. And if it hadn't been for the Internet, you know, they would have pulled out some not-so-exciting book called "Economics" that they found in a library. Would have put it down pretty quickly because it's not very accessible, as you've been saying. But for me--

Maeve Cohen: But yet this--Sorry to go on--

Russ Roberts: No, I just say, for me, and EconTalk, one of the reasons, one of the silver linings of the Crisis, was it did get a lot of people interested in what economics is. They struggled to gain access to it. As you pointed out. But, it does cause--it was a wake-up call for a lot of folks who weren't academics. Who weren't university students. Just say. And I want to know what happened. I want to understand it. In contrast to, say, the Great Depression, which was a similar event--much worse. But, at that time, if you think about being an individual in 1933, when unemployment I think was about 25% in the United States, or just absolutely horrific: What would you do if you want to understand it? You know, there was nothing to do. And here, we live in this time--doesn't mean everything's great--but at least we live in a time when people can explore things in unimagined ways compared to the past.

Maeve Cohen: Yeah. Definitely. And: Academics can use this stuff to educate the students. And I think this is a real shame, itself, the structure of academia, is there's so much weight is put on research and producing good research that the teaching, like you were saying: You don't get proper training to be a teacher. And that sort of how you engage students. I mean, I had a few professors who were incredible and obviously really passionate about how they input so much thought into it. But they are few and far between. And if you have got all these pressures on you as an academic to produce research, you've got all of this, this bureaucracy that you've got to do with these students, then actually creating a course that's engaging and using things like, [?], which seems really obvious, is--you just don't have the time to do that. And so you do end up just teaching the same slides[?] you've been teaching for the last 10 years. They are just not engaging or interesting at all. And that's a real shame.

38:07

Russ Roberts: The other point is that--and I brought this up again; I bring it up as often as I can, I guess--in a recent episode with Anat Admati we were talking about the Crisis. And, unfortunately, many economics benefit either explicitly or implicitly from the status quo. They either hope to work for the Federal Reserve; they maybe consult on Wall Street. And so, they are somewhat compromised. And, we think of ourselves, economists, as these detached observers of the human scene. But, of course, we have our own self-interest. And I referenced then and will mention again now a conversation with Luigi Zingales, who makes this point, I think very eloquently, many, many times, and it can't be emphasized enough: Economists act like they are just these doctors who come in to repair and heal the economy. And, of course, we're not. We're something like doctors, but more like doctors who--you know, I have imperfect knowledge of how the body works, and who benefit, as sometimes doctors do, too, from certain types of treatment as opposed to others. So, I think it's just really valuable to be aware of that when you are listening to people give policy advice and other things.

Maeve Cohen: Yeah, and it's also a matter of the lack of diversity within the discipline. I mean, the vast majority of economists are middle class white men; and their lived experience is significantly different to the lived experiences of massive swathes of society. And so we can't hope for those people in those sections of society to be representative in policy decisions. So, this whole point of democratizing economics, that whole branch of what we do, one of the main driving forces behind our--is because we want to make economics relevant to people's lives and show them how exciting it is, and encourage them to out and study economics so that we can get a more diverse set of voices around the policy table. Which I think is--yeah, I mean, that's a huge task. But yeah--speaks to what you were saying of it.

Russ Roberts: Now, why do you say, 'Economics is detached from people?' That's a theme on your website, various versions of that. What does that mean to you? What do you mean by that phrase?

Maeve Cohen: So, we talk about individual agents maximizing utility, in a market. And there's no people in that. So, we look at the rational agent. And I'm certainly not rational. So, my--does that agent represent me? There's no talk of humans, really. It's--yeah. It seems that we're looking at the math and the theory and we are forgetting that actually these are people doing what people do, a massively complex dance. And, by not talking about the people within it, we make it less relayable and less human, and less embedded in the world.

Russ Roberts: But I think it's more than that. It's not just that it's not so relatable. And, we have to concede--you know, there has been a growth in Behavioral Economics, which does try to introduce some more complexity into individual choice, at least. I don't know how much of it has made it into mainstream curriculum. Do you have a feel about that?

Maeve Cohen: Yeah; I mean, it's getting there. There are aspects of progress with Behavioral Economics, for sure.

Russ Roberts: Yeah. I just don't know--I don't think it's--it's not embedded in teaching. It's sort of an aside. Like, 'Oh, by the way, this isn't complete--'

Maeve Cohen: Yeah. Not like a whole curricula. Yeah--

Russ Roberts: It's not obvious you can do that. But, I guess the issue for me, to take your critique about agents, rational agents, I think there's two things that bother me about that. It's not so much the behavioral part. It's not so much that I occasionally make mistakes--which, of course, I do; and we all do. We're all human. I think it's the--when you teach that model over and over again, that, it's basically--I want to give your critique its full due. It's basically saying that, you know, people are like programmable robots; we just have to get the incentives right. And I'm sympathetic to that point. Incentives matter a lot, as I said earlier. But I think once you start thinking of people like robots, you tend to start thinking of--or as programmable or as influenceable, which of course they are--you start to then start thinking that, 'Oh, yeah; and therefore I can make society better off by doing X. Because I can see--I know how people respond, and then I'll get this aggregated impact; and I can just add up all that utility or happiness or whatever we call it.' And I think that's a fundamental misunderstanding of the human enterprise. It's particularly materialistic. It particularly emphasizes stuff over how we experience life. You know, one of the things that, in last 2 or 3 years I've started thinking about a lot is the communal part of our lives, what I call our longing to belong. That our desire to connect with other human beings. It's totally absent from economic modeling other than in the corners of, you know, Gary Becker's work or others who are doing what has been called Economic Sociology. And, that seems to be missing out on like an enormous part of human wellbeing. And by focusing on the measurable stuff-which is--I understand the desire--we're missing an enormous part of the human experience.

Maeve Cohen: Yeah. And I would--yeah. I totally agree with that. And I would go further than that. Like, I think what is happening to our environment is a consequence of that. Because, it's not quantifiable. You can't put--you can't put a number on the environment. And that means we've not been able to accurately analyze the issues, accurately understand or provide solutions to the issues that we are creating. Because it's just--yeah. It's outside of the [?] of the tools that we are using. And to do that effectively--and of course, you can doctor the tools you are using and try and fit bits in here and there. But [?] would be that, fundamentally that way of looking at the world is not the best way to look at our environmental problems. There are other tools we should be and can be using.

44:24

Russ Roberts: So, I want to stretch myself here, and try to critique my usual view of things. And get your reaction. So, in the United States we have this phenomenon--I'm sure you have it there as well in the United Kingdom, but I think it's more pervasive here. Which is, what are called Big Box stores. So, we have these enormous retailers, like WalMart, Home Depot, Lowes. And I love them. I love them all. I confess. I really do love them--in some dimension, anyway. I enjoy shopping there. They are phenomenal places, just to be walking around in. They are brightly lit, and their stuff is cheap, and there's a ton of stuff. Yeah--I'll never forget; I think I've told this story before, about I showed up late for--my plane was delayed and I had to give a speech somewhere, and instead of getting picked up at 7pm I got picked up at midnight; and my bag was lost, so I had no clothes. And the person who picked me up said, 'Do you want to go--do you want to get something to eat?' And I said, 'No, I need to get something to wear.' And so we went to a Super-Wal-Mart. I'd never been in one. That was about 10 years ago; and I still haven't been in one since, because they don't them--we don't let them happen around here, outside Washington, D.C. much. But it was an extraordinary experience. It was 1 o'clock in the morning. It looked like daytime, because it was lit like--it looked like I was near the surface of the sun. And they had everything I needed. And it was cheap. I bought a shaver. And I bought underwear. And I bought a shirt. And I was fine. And it was a glorious, capitalist experience. But--so that's the romance about, in favor. Let's do the romance against, on the other side. The romance against it on the other side is that, you know, small towns that used to have lots of other small retailers now have one giant retailer. It's far away. It's out in the suburb, or it's the wrong side of town where it's cheaper to build a large building. And the texture of daily life is different. Now, I don't romanticize the small-town daily life. Because the stores were not so clean and they didn't have much selection; it was really expensive; there wasn't much competition. There were a lot of negatives, too. But something has been lost by the move toward the larger suburban or exurban retailers. And, as an economist, my first impulse is to say, 'Well, people want to shop at those big stores; we should let them.' And there's issues of subsidies: put those aside for the moment. But, we generally believe in America, and certainly my economics training tells me, that if people choose it, it's for the good. But, something is lost. And the thing--the point I want to make, that I think I have to concede--and people like me, politically, ideologically have to concede--is that, it's not free, that cheap stuff. It changes the texture of daily life. And that, we don't measure. And so, I'm not saying it was a mistake that people make those choices. I'm just saying that the full picture isn't obvious. And I think that's not so good.

Maeve Cohen: Yeah. I mean--yeah. The price mechanism doesn't really work for things like that, because you can't put a price on it. And-yeah. I totally agree. I think that capitalism has brought such wonderful things and increased our living standards to such a great extent--but yeah, this stuff isn't free. And we are creating damage--we are damaging people by always being able to consume things so easily and so cheaply. We are creating pain in other areas of life. And yeah, so Rethinking Economics, I guess that's fundamentally what it's about, is looking at what the damage that currently isn't being measured, is; and how do we begin to incorporate that in our understanding of economics and how do we try and mitigate against some of the worst excesses of that. It's not throwing capitalism out. It's not saying, 'This is a terrible model and it's destroying the world.' It's saying that, 'Yes, some of this stuff is amazing and it's improved our lives massively, but actually there are some huge, gaping flaws here that we need to come look at again.'

48:38

Russ Roberts: So, I want to try and push this Walmart example a little bit. And again, I'm ignoring the fact that Wal-mart gets subsidized sometimes by tax breaks. Of course, other things get subsidized, too. It's really a messy, complicated thing to try to measure those kind of artificial encouragements and discouragements. I just want to think about the following. So, I really love--there's two things I love. I love Amazon. And I love a good book store. And I recognize that Amazon is destroying--has destroyed--lots of bookstores. And, even though I love the fact that I have a zillion books in my house, because of Amazon, and a bunch more on my Kindle, and that I bought those books because they were so inexpensive and easy to get into my house because of the web, I also like occasionally to wander into a physical bookstore and pick up the books and touch them and look at them. And, we all have a temptation to go into those physical bookstores, fondle the books, put them back down, and go home and order from Amazon. And, we would all say, most people would say, 'Well, that's fair. Because that's what markets are about. You make your choices.' But I think we could have a culture, we could have a social norm that says, it's not enough to say, 'I hope everybody else buys their books at the little book store on the corner, because that way I can wander in there every once in a while,' but I'll be buying most of my books at Amazon. But it seems to me we could have a norm that says--again, I don't want to penalize Amazon artificially. I don't want to give them an advantage artificially, either. But I do think we could have a social norm that says, 'If you value that bookstore on the corner, you might want to sacrifice some of your standard of living to shop there, because if you only follow the narrowest of self-interest, it won't be there any more.'

Maeve Cohen: Yeah. And I think that people do. We still have vinyl shops [record stores--Econlib Ed.] in Manchester. Like, we sell at vinyl shops across the world.

Russ Roberts: You'd better explain what those are, Maeve, because most people in America don't know what those--first of all, that's a U.K. word; but it's also out of date. So, explain what that is.

Maeve Cohen: Records--music records. Those big, black disks. We still have--we call them 'vinyls' here; we still have vinyl stores, in the United Kingdom, because people have chosen that--there's other things that they value about listening to music that go beyond just downloading it on Spotify. It's going into the shop, flipping through all the little records; taking out this huge disk with this beautiful cover and they're the things that they value. And I think that there is a huge counterculture and all different aspects. So, in the suburb that I live in, there's this vegan cooperative grocery store--this big store--that is thriving. Like, it does incredibly well. Yeah. Yeah. There's a Morrison's there, which is a big supermarket chain in the United Kingdom: there's a Morrison's next door. So many people go and shop in this vegan cooperative even though it's more expensive, because they value the--they share the same values that this store does. So, I think that, yeah, people do do that. If we could--I think that encouraging those sorts of things is an important part of getting this right; but obviously there are huge systemic barriers to this, so it's not just about individual choice. Like you are saying about Amazon. The ease of it all: there's a lot of things in place that make it far more difficult to do the shopping in the little book store, that we could make some of these things easier for people. I guess.

52:26

Russ Roberts: Yeah: it's a challenge. Because, if you are not careful, you end up supporting legislation that penalizes Amazon; and it's really done to destroy the ability to compete with those smaller players. And, I don't think we ought to do that. I think that's a mistake. I think we shouldn't be artificially helping or hindering anyone. I'm a big fan of creative destruction--despite what I just said. Which is the challenge, I think, of squaring my circle: which is, that I love the idea that the world is dynamic, and I don't want to slow it down too much. But I don't mind if we slow it down through our own choices. We are recording this in the middle of November. And every year, one of the things I absolutely have intellectual problems with is the Christmas holiday shopping argument that we 'need it for the economy.' And, of course, if people decided they wanted to spend more time sitting in front of the fireplace and less time working, and more time with their families, and the economy got a little bit smaller, that would be wonderful if that's what people wanted. If they want to work really have and have lots of--crap--they're entitled, we're entitled; I do plenty of that, too. I'm not being--but this idea that somehow we need it for the economy, it's just absurd. It's just a horrible--

Maeve Cohen: Yeah. It is really dangerous. Obviously, I am sure that you--we disagree on the whole--I don't think I would use the term 'penalizing' Amazon. Penalizing these huge monopolies that have an insane amount of market power. And I do believe in regulation and government intervention to stop that from happening. Particularly with regard to tax, and taxing them fairly. But I think--yeah, this obsession that we have with growth; and a lot of this is born of undergraduate economics education, that a good economy is an economy that grows, is complete fallacy. Yeah. We could actually stand to lose a little growth. We could stand to not--like, the amount of tat, you see at Christmas--the amount of gifts that I get--I'm just like, 'Why would you ever buy this for me?' I don't want this; I don't need this. But it's--yeah--it's good for the economy, so people have got jobs creating this tat; but people have got really badly paid jobs creating stuff that people don't want just so that people can buy more stuff just so the economy can grow. And it is completely backwards, and really destructive on people's livelihoods and just on the state of my livingroom, and yeah, on the environment.

Russ Roberts: Did you say 'tat'?

Maeve Cohen: Tat.

Russ Roberts: How do you spell that?

Maeve Cohen: T-a-t.

Russ Roberts: And how would you translate that, for those who don't speak English? Who only speak American? Junk? Is it junk?

Maeve Cohen: Yeah. Yeah. Just like rubbish. Just like little bits that you don't need.

Russ Roberts: Okay. Glad to get that straight. Love that word. It's like twee--another one of my favorite British words. Which means, I think, adorably, unbearably cute. At least that's what I [?]

Maeve Cohen: Yeah. And like, very traditional--

Russ Roberts: It's like a tchotchke. That would be the Yiddish version of twee. Well, it's a combination. A tchotchke is tat that's twee. That's our linguistic lesson for the day.

55:53

Russ Roberts: So, let's close with the fact that--where I think we don't agree, and try to get some understanding of why. So, we're having a great conversation, and I'm enjoying it. It reminds me of some things that I feel very strongly about that I sometimes forget about. It stretches me a little bit to think about where I might have my own burdens of my education that I don't think about that I carry around unconsciously. But, we don't agree--I think are on the more interventionist side of things, I would guess--

Maeve Cohen: Yes--

Russ Roberts: than I am. I would guess. So, the question is: I wonder why that is. Given that we both don't like many of the things about economics--I wonder what is the underlying cause of our disagreement. I don't know the answer; but I want to see what you can say.

Maeve Cohen: I've got a guess.

Russ Roberts: Go ahead.

Maeve Cohen: I think this is something that--when you were coming of age and when you were becoming an economist, economics was like on the up and in its heyday; and stuff was going well. And this science-cum-religion of economics was really in its ascendency. I had a completely different experience. And this is what we say--I'm slightly older than most of our students, so it works--I'll do the one that we say for our students, and then I'll talk about myself. But, our students were coming of age when economics was just collapsing down around our ears. So, they don't have the same, like, deference towards--not that I'm saying you have a deference towards; obviously you are very critical--but a lot of our professors, a lot of people that we argue with--and deference is probably far too strong a word. But they have this respect for economics that students, that the generation just below mine I would say just don't have. So they just aren't--they aren't as convinced. They start off a hell of a lot more critical than a lot of their professors do. Me, personally: I'm from the northeast of England, which was a huge mining community; and all of them, in 1984-85, there was a massive miners' strike, and the miners lost; and all the mines were shut down. And basically the northeast of England is one of the most deprived areas in England/Europe now. Because they did nothing. So, this was an economic decision that was made in Westminster, and they did nothing to try and rebuild those economies. So, the deprivation and the consequences of the miner's strike that I grew up around made it very--I started off very critical of economics, because I was like, 'Well, that was an economic decision and it done in the economic good, and it's destroyed my neighborhood.' And so, yeah: students definitely, students today are much more critical of economics, just because they never saw it when it was in its heyday.

Russ Roberts: I think that's potential

          Skier Mikaela Shiffrin clinches historic win      Cache   Translate Page      

She made her name as a slalom specialist but Mikaela Shiffrin won an historic super-G at Lake Louise Sunday to become the first skier to win races in all six World Cup disciplines.

The 23-year stormed to a first ever super-G title to clinch her 46th World Cup victory and move into fourth in the women's all-time list.

Only Switzerland's Vreni Schneider (55), Austria's Annemarie Moser-Proll (62) and US teammate Lindsey Vonn (82) have won more World Cup races on the women's circuit.

"It was one of my big goals to win in every discipline when I first started racing...one of those goals that you don't think you're ever going to achieve, and it's incredible," Shiffrin said.

Visit CNN/com/Sport for more news, features and videos

In only her ninth career World Cup super-G start, Shiffrin took an aggressive line to beat Norway's Ragnhild Mowinckel by 0.77 seconds with Germany's Viktoria Rebensburg third.

The technical specialist won her first World Cup downhill race in Lake Louise last season and has now triumphed in slalom, parallel slalom, giant slalom, super-G, downhill and alpine combined.

She also became the seventh woman to win in skiing's five different disciplines of downhill, super-G, giant slalom, slalom and combined.

Shiffrin, bidding for a third straight World Cup overall crown, has already won slalom races in Levi, Finland and Killington, Vermont this season.

She will be going for a fourth straight world slalom title at alpine skiing's biennial World Championships, in Are, Sweden in February.

'Huge blow'

Vonn, who is chasing Ingemar Stenmark's record of 86 World Cup wins, missed the race weekend at Lake Louise after injuring her knee in training last month.

On Friday she backtracked on her decision to retire at the end of the season with the announcement she will race at her favorite Lake Louise location in 2019.

The Canadian venue has been so successful for Vonn it has earned the nickname "Lake Lindsey" -- she has won 18 of her 44 starts on the Alberta track.

Vonn said in a video posted on social media that missing the Lake Louise stop was "devastating" and a "huge blow."

"Hopefully, I break the record this season and can have fun," she added.

"I don't want the record to determine the level of success I've had in my career. I want to push out of the starting gate (at Lake Louise), even if I'm not there to win. Lake Louise is just really special to me. It's not about the record. It's not about, 'Oh, well you said you retired.' I really don't care what people think. I really don't. I want to do it for myself."

          EU strikes deal on bank reform, few technical details remain      Cache   Translate Page      
European Union finance ministers struck a deal on a major reform of banking rules on Tuesday, addressing some of the loopholes exposed by the global financial crisis. The overhaul, proposed by the European Commission in November 2016, sets the level of buffers banks must raise to absorb losses and introduces new capital requirements to strengthen financial stability. Under the reform, European banks will have to abide by a new set of requirements aimed at keeping their lending in check and ensuring they have stable funding sources. Some technical details need to be finalised by the end of the year, with talks due later on Tuesday with the European Parliament, Austrian Finance Minister Hartwig Loeger said. The agreement came after two years of talks and adapts EU rules to deals reached at a global level with U.S. and Japanese regulators, although the draft agreed text includes tweaks to global standards and a large number of waivers. "About 90 percent of the text is agreed

          G20: You can smell tear gas in the streets as the oil industry squabbles      Cache   Translate Page      
What the G20 and OPEC meetings mean for the political relations, economies, and people of the world.

Last week, two important meetings took place—one, in Buenos Aires, Argentina, of the Group of 20 (G20) nations, and two, in Vienna, Austria, of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and other oil producers. The two meetings did not produce any resolution to the major economic challenges in the world. But they did soothe the nerves of financial markets. At the G20, the United States and China dialed down the temperature over trade but did not settle the long-term grievances each side has of the other. At the OPEC+ meeting, Russia and Saudi Arabia agreed to cut production and raise the price of oil despite pressure from the United States and others to keep oil prices low.

At neither meeting did the major powers find solutions to their problems. They are all caught in mazes from which there are no easy exits. But what calmed the world of finance was that the geopolitical tension between the major powers seemed to have lessened. What impact this reduced tension has for the world’s people, however, is not clear.

Trade

The “trade war” engineered by U.S. President Donald Trump against China began with tariffs and ended with a damp squib. At the G20, Trump told China’s Xi Jinping that the U.S. tariffs that would have gone up to 25 percent on $200 billion worth of Chinese imports will no longer be applied. China, for its part, said that it would import more goods from the United States. No specifics were announced, which is why the tensions over even this agreement spilled over onto Twitter (courtesy of Trump’s hyperbole) and into more sober statements from the Chinese government.

The more fundamental questions of intellectual property and currency valuation remain unsolved. The United States accuses China of theft of the intellectual property of U.S. firms, but the Chinese counter—as they have in the arbitration panels of the World Trade Organization—that they merely draw from technology transferred as a result of commercial agreements freely made by firms eager to use Chinese labor. It will be impossible to resolve these two problems, since neither side sees the issues in the same way. Their worldviews regarding intellectual property and currency valuation are utterly alien to each other. If the United States believes that China is unfairly valuing its currency, the Chinese point to the unfair advantage that the dollar has over every currency in the world since it is used as one of the major global currencies for facilitation of trade and for the storage of wealth.

Oil

Russia’s Vladimir Putin and Saudi Arabia’s Mohammed bin Salman offered each other a friendly hand slap at the G20. Everyone seemed happy to see Mohammed bin Salman, despite the clear evidence of his role in the murder of the Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

But the real agreements between Russia and Saudi Arabia were not directly made in Buenos Aires. They were made more quietly in Vienna at the OPEC+ meeting. At Buenos Aires, Putin said, “yes, we have an agreement to prolong our accords.” He was referring to the deal between Russia and Saudi Arabia since 2016 to manage oil prices to their mutual benefit. The deal notwithstanding, Saudi Arabia has continued to pump itself into trouble—flooding the market with oil, driving prices down and depleting its own treasury as a result. Now Russia is eager to see oil production cuts and oil prices rise. Trapped by sanctions and by low oil prices, Russia has plunged into internal economic difficulties. The real issue was how much each country inside and outside OPEC should pump. That is why Putin said, “there is no final deal on volumes.” In fact, even after the deal has begun to emerge, there is no final deal. Saudi Arabia has not been a good partner here. It has pumped outside the numbers over the course of the past few years, largely under pressure from the United States.

There are two reasons why the United States wants low oil prices, despite the fact that the U.S. is now one of the world’s largest oil producers. First, low oil prices mean an immediate subsidy for the U.S. consumer and for U.S. manufacturing firms. There is no economic incentive to move to renewable energy when oil prices are low. Second, low oil prices hit adversaries of the U.S.-led world order that—as it happens—are major oil producers. The list includes Iran and Venezuela, two countries that have been sent into internal turmoil as oil prices have plummeted. But the United States has sufficient tools to hurt these countries without forcing oil prices down. For instance, even if oil prices rise, U.S. sanctions can be harsh enough to cut Iranian and Venezuelan oil out of the market. The lack of Iranian and Venezuelan oil operates as an effective cut in oil production, which will itself raise oil prices.

Saudi Arabia has already begun to pressure Libya and Nigeria to reduce oil exports, although both these African countries are reliant upon oil revenues. Saudi Arabia has succeeded in pushing Qatar out of OPEC on political grounds, but since Qatar only produces 2 percent of OPEC’s crude oil the departure, Qatexit is not meaningful. Inside the world of oil, there are those who are always pushed aside so that others can benefit.

Oil Buyers’ Club

In 2005, Indian Petroleum Minister Mani Shankar Aiyar assembled his counterparts from across Asia to start a discussion on a buyers’ club. The precise issue on the table was the “Asian Premium” charged by Saudi Arabia and other oil producers to Asian countries. The “Asian Premium” is substantial—close to $10 billion per year for the Asian consumers of Gulf oil. It is what bothered Aiyar and the other oil ministers. But they did not come to any agreement.

Asia is the largest importer of oil in the world. India and China, with the United States, are the three largest importers of oil. Right behind them are Japan and South Korea. If you add the oil imports by China, India, Japan and South Korea, then these four Asian countries import a full third of world oil imports. They are both reliant upon the oil exporters, but they also have power as a bloc of consumers.

In 2012, China’s premier Wen Jiabao said that there needed to be a counter-cartel to OPEC that should include Europe and the United States. Interest in his proposal was minimal. Oil had reached $100 per barrel. It stifled economic growth and did not move any of these industrial giants toward non-carbon renewable fuel.

The issue of a buyers’ cartel came back on the table in April this year at the International Energy Forum. The chairman of Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) Sanjiv Singh and the chairman of China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC) Wang Yilin then met in Beijing to go deeper into the possibility. By June, China and India—which import 17 percent of the world’s oil—had begun to openly talk about a buyers’ cartel to help create “stable and moderate” oil prices, as India’s current Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan put it.

China and India have been upset by the U.S. sanctions on Iran. They have felt that these produce an adverse impact on Asian economies. They are joined by Japan and the European Union, who are also not pleased with these sanctions. It is now being said that if China and India establish a buyers’ club, Japan and Europe will join in.

Smell of Tear Gas

From the air-conditioned rooms of the oligarchy, we go to the tear gas of the streets.

Protests in Paris, France, have been the most violent in decades. The yellow vests (gilets jaunes) appeared as if out of nowhere to demonstrate against the French government’s hike in fuel prices. They make the case that the violence of the economy has destroyed their ability to function. Any violence on the streets is a reflection of the violence that structures their lives. The streets of Paris smelled of tear gas.

In Buenos Aires, Argentina, labor unions and political groups of one kind or another planned massive protests against the G20. They wanted to scream at their leaders, who have been deaf to their pleas. But the Argentinian government held the G20 meeting at the Costa Salguero convention center, on the magnificent Rio de La Plata. Police cordoned off the area, while the coast guard boats sailed up and down the river. No one could get near the site. None of the leaders were interrupted by the chants.

There were no protests in Vienna. The OPEC building was nonetheless surrounded by the elite WEGA units. No one knew that the meeting was being held. There is so little democracy in the institutions that structure our lives.

Holanda se suma al veto de los coches de combustión y quiere hacerlo 10 años antes que España: en 2030#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

El fin de la venta y uso de los vehículos de combustión será en las próximas décadas unas realidad. España ha fijado su propio objetivo para 2040 ante las voces de alarma de los fabricantes, que aseguran que es demasiado pronto. Lo cierto es que países como Austria están estudiando prohibir la venta de coches diésel y gasolina para 2020, mientras que Alemania fija la fecha 10 años después.

Los Países Bajos se sube al carro de los que quieren que en 2030 solo circulen vehículos libres de emisiones: un grupo de expertos ha presentado un plan que incluye subsidios y el fin de los coches impulsados por combustibles fósiles, y está recibiendo una gran acogida.

2 millones de eléctricos para 2030

Símbolo de carga

Según explica Dutch News, el grupo de expertos en movilidad ha ideado un paquete de medidas que esperan que aumente la cantidad de vehículos eléctricos a dos millones para 2030 en las carreteras holandesas.

Los planes consisten en subvencionar con 6.000 euros el costo de los automóviles eléctricos nuevos para uso privado en 2021, y reducir las ayudas gradualmente a 2.200 euros para 2030. Habrá subsidios también para los automóviles de empresa y de alquiler, mientras que los impuestos sobre la gasolina y el diésel aumentarán un centavo por litro en 2020 y después otro tramo en 2023.

Las medidas acordadas hasta ahora incluyen también eliminar gradualmente el uso de gas natural en los hogares e introducir impuestos más altos sobre las emisiones de carbono industriales.

Si la propuesta, que está debatiendo en la Cámara de los Representantes de Países Bajos, sale adelante, en 2030 no se podrán matricular coches impulsados por combustibles fósiles.

Se trata de uno de los cinco 'think tanks' del país que buscan detener el cambio climático y reducir las emisiones de dióxido de carbono -los otros cuatro cubren las áreas de electricidad, agricultura, industria y construcción-. Este grupo en concreto está formado por organizaciones automovilísticas, grupos ecologistas y departamentos gubernamentales, y sus medidas están recibiendo un gran apoyo por parte del Gobierno.

Ya en octubre, el primer ministro de Holanda, Mark Rutte, presentó sus planes para los próximos años: reducción del 55 % de las emisiones europeas para 2030, la inversión de 4.000 millones de euros para la transición a energías limpias y el cierre de "al menos" una planta de carbón.

Lo cierto es que en España nos hemos echado las manos a la cabeza tras el anuncio del Gobierno de estudiar prohibir la venta de coches diésel y gasolina en 2040, pero vamos muy tarde. Austria estudia desde abril de 2016 dejar de vender coches de combustión en 2020; Gran Bretaña se planteó en julio de 2017 hacer lo propio pero con una meta más a largo plazo, en línea con Francia y California: 2040.

En India se plantean desde abril de 2017 dejar de vender este tipo de vehículos en 2030, al igual de Irlanda, Escocia o Países Bajos. Mientras tanto, en Noruega, llevan con programas de incentivos para la venta de coches eléctricos desde 1990; en Japón desde 1996.

But the drumbeat of dire news from the Islamic Republic of Germany increasingly makes that seem like a foolish investment of time and money. Our conversations with Germans -- both in Germany and immigrants to the USA from Germany -- makes it seem pointless to harbor hope for their future. The Germans aren't just committing suicide, they're sanctimonious about it. Maybe eastern Germany or more rural parts of Austria or Switzerland will be suitable places for North American whites to re-settle.

Estos son los siete momentos que han convertido en inolvidable la temporada 2018 de MotoGP#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Con la temporada 2018 finalizada es hora de echar la vista atrás y rememorar todo lo ocurrido. Algunos momentos destacan por ser espectaculares a nivel deportivo pero también hay hitos, despedidas y logros difíciles de olvidar que han protagonizado los pilotos de MotoGP en esta temporada 2018.

De los 19 grandes premios que se han celebrado esta temporada estos son siete momentos que han marcado 2018 en MotoGP.

Campeón y aspirante se miden en la última curva de Catar

El comienzo de la temporada fue un reflejo de 2017: vivimos un espectacular duelo entre Andrea Dovizioso y Marc Márquez dando una pista de quienes optarían al título esta temporada 2018. Fue Andrea Dovizioso quien ganó el primer asalto.

Solo 27 milésimas separaron a Andrea Dovizioso de un Marc Márquez que trató de meterle la moto a su rival en cada curva, pero que finalmente se tuvo que conformar con ser segundo en los primeros compases de 2018.

Cuando el caos se apoderó de la parrilla en Argentina

El segundo Gran Premio del año fue cuanto menos convulso. La carrera de Argentina fue declarada en mojado pero la pista comenzó a secarse antes de que se diera la salida y los pilotos de MotoGP entraron para cambiar sus motos por las otras con configuración de seco, con una excepción Jack Miller que había jugado a la estrategia montando desde el primer momento los slick. Ahí se quedó, solo en parrilla mientras que el resto de rivales habían ido a cambiar sus monturas.

Los incidentes no quedaron ahí. La moto de Marc Márquez se paró nada más llegar a parrilla y el catalán tuvo que arrancarla y aquí vino su error: volvió a su posición original, algo estaba prohibido. Dirección de Carrera obligó al de Cervera a hacer un ride through.

Así lo hizo, pero impuso su espectacular ritmo llegando a tocar a Aleix Espargaró, por lo que fue sancionado con perder una plaza. Lejos de calmarse, Márquez siguió como un tifón y al pasar a Valentino Rossi el español tocó al italiano y propició su caída, por lo que fue amonestado con perder 30 segundos que le relegaron a la 18ª posición a pesar de haber entrado quinto en meta.

La primera victoria de Jorge Lorenzo sobre la Ducati

Jorge Lorenzo Motogp Italia 2018 1

Los comienzos nunca fueron fáciles puede ser la frase que mejor defina el periplo de Jorge Lorenzo sobre la Ducati. El balear tenía el talento, tenía la moto y el momento mágico que tanto se le resistió llegó: Mugello fue el escenario perfecto para la primera victoria de Jorge Lorenzo a lomos de la Desmosedici GP 18.

Tras una batalla épica con su compañero de equipo, Andrea Dovizioso, el 99 que había conservado los neumáticos mejor que el italiano consiguió recortarle distancia hasta que pudo pasar la meta en primera posición. Así demostró a sus detractores que cuestionaban su nivel, que era capaz de ganar con la Ducati, después de esa vinieron dos más en los Grandes Premios de Austria y Catalunya.

La despedida de una leyenda

Dani Pedrosa Gp Alemania Rueda Prensa Motogp 2018

Uno de los momentos más tristes de la temporada vino en el GP de Alemania. Después de unas semanas de rumores sobre su futuro que le colocaban en la recién nacida estructura del Petronas Yamaha, Dani Pedrosa convocó a los medios en una rueda de prensa especial en uno de sus circuitos predilectos, el de Sachsenring y confirmó la peor sospecha: el tricampeón del mundo se iba a retirar al final de la temporada.

Meses más tarde, se hizo público que los planes de futuro del catalán están en KTM en calidad de piloto probador, una importante apuesta por parte de la marca austriaca que ha elegido a uno de pilotos más finos de la parrilla para ayudar a desarrollar la KTM RC16.

Durante el GP de Valencia se le realizó a Dani Pedrosa un especial homenaje en el que se le nombró Leyenda de MotoGP y el español se despidió de su público en una emotiva rueda de prensa en la que repasó sus mejores y peores momentos en sus 18 años en el Campeonato del Mundo de MotoGP.

Cuando Márquez ganó a Dovizioso al estilo 'Dovi'

Marquez Tailandia 2018 2

Uno de los duelos más importantes de la temporada ha sido el formado por Marc Márquez y Andrea Dovizioso. Ambos pilotos han sido la pareja de rivales más fuerte del año.

De los mejores momentos de ambos fue en el GP de Tailandia donde nos regalaron un final de carrera para el recuerdo. Marc Márquez llegó en primera posición a la última curva, Dovizioso sucumbió a la tentación y adelantó al 93. El de Honda abrió la trazado y saliendo con más aceleración que su rival pasó en primera posición la línea de meta. Márquez consiguió ganar a Dovizioso con la misma estrategia que él le había ganado en el GP de Catar y en los de Austria y Japón en 2017.

Level 7

Marc Márquez ha vuelto a hacerlo en 2018. El español ha reafirmado su superioridad durante todo el año y en el GP de Japón, tres carreras antes de que concluyera la temporada, cosechó su séptima corona. Un campeonato que celebró simulando el nivel siete de un videojuego y con el que ya es un mito viviente.

Tras haber rubricado una temporada maravillosa, Márquez se coronó por quinta vez como campeón del mundo de categoría reina, igualando los números del mítico Mick Doohan.

El día en que Yamaha levantó cabeza

Hablar de la temporada 2018 y no hacerlo de la crisis de Yamaha sería omitir una parte de los hechos más importantes. La marca nipona ha pasado este año por la mayor crisis de su historia, un total de 25 carreras estuvieron sin ganar, concretamente desde Assen en 2017 donde ganó Valentino Rossi.

El final de esa sequía lo marcó Maverick Viñales, el español mostró en la carrera del GP de Australia una superioridad notable respecto a los demás y después de una larga travesía por el desierto llegó una victoria especialmente dulce en uno de los circuitos predilectos del de Yamaha.

          Central European University is forced out of Hungary, moving to Vienna      Cache   Translate Page      

Central European University announced today that it has been forced out of Hungary and will move its U.S.-accredited academic programs from Budapest to Vienna in September 2019.

CEU says the Hungarian government refuses to ratify an agreement that would allow it to continue to operate its campus in Budapest under the terms of an April 2017 law on foreign branch campuses. The law was widely seen as a targeted attack by Hungary’s increasingly illiberal government on CEU and its founder and honorary board chairman, the liberal financier George Soros.

The institution previously said it would move out of Hungary if the Hungarian government did not ratify an agreement that would let it continue to offer U.S. degree programs in Budapest by Dec. 1, a deadline that passed Saturday.

“Basically this is a dark day for freedom in Hungary,” said Michal Ignatieff, the president and rector of CEU. “And it’s a dark day for academic freedom.”

CEU’s future in Hungary came into question in April 2017 when the government passed a law on foreign branch campuses that many said seemed designed to specifically target the American-accredited institution. Among other things, the law required foreign branch campuses to have a campus in their home country, which CEU didn't have.

CEU officials say they have complied with the terms of the law by establishing academic programs in New York State. But the Hungarian government has refused to sign an agreement it negotiated with New York that would ensure the university’s long-term future.

"We can't do anything about that," Ignatieff said. "But we can't continue to play these games for another day, or another week. We have a university that we want to move to a country, Austria, where these games are not played, a country where the rule of law and respect for free institutions still means something.

"Let me make it clear that we are not going to Vienna to be a university in exile," Ignatieff added. "We're much more ambitious than that. We'll do what we do here, which is maintain world-class teaching and research in partnership with the great institutions of science and knowledge in Austria."

CEU, a graduate-only institution focused on the social sciences, humanities and law, traces its history back to 1989, when, according to a brief history on the university’s website, a group of intellectuals “conceptualized an international university that would help facilitate the transition from dictatorship to democracy in Central and Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union.” The university opened its doors in Prague in 1991 and moved to Budapest in 1993.

The institution, which has both American and Hungarian accreditation, is highly regarded internationally, with scholars and administrators from Harvard, Oxford, Stanford and other elite institutions on its board. CEU says it receives more competitive European Union research grant funding than any other institution in Central Europe, having received more than 19 million euros (more than $21 million) in E.U. funding for the 2018-26 period.

But for all its international renown, the university has come under attack at home under the right-wing populist rule of Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, who has waged a prolonged attack on Soros.

The expulsion of CEU -- what government officials have referred to as the “Soros university” -- comes amid wider attacks on academic freedom in Hungary, including a recent move by the government to withdraw accreditation from gender studies programs and to impose a tax on academic programs for migrants and refugees. The European Parliament invoked concerns about the erosion of academic freedom and other freedoms of expression in Hungary in voting in September to ask member states to determine if Hungary is at risk of violating the founding values of the union -- a first step in a process that could eventually lead to E.U. sanctions against Hungary.

“It’s a sad day for the European Higher Education Area,” said Michael Gaebel, the director of the European University Association’s Higher Education Policy Unit. The EUA previously described the attacks on academic freedom and institutional autonomy in Hungary as "unprecedented in the European Union."

“We are worried about the implication that this has obviously for CEU but also for the higher education community in Hungary” more broadly, Gaebel said. “The government has demonstrated that it can close down or drive out a university. I think that’s a good demonstration of the power that the government has on these issues. I will assume that this will have an impact on the higher education and research sector in a way that people might feel intimidated, and might take to self-censorship. If the government has already decided that there should be no teaching on gender studies, the question is what comes next?”

In a statement, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Department of State expressed disappointment but not condemnation. The spokeswoman, Heather Nauert, said the U.S. is “disappointed that the Hungarian government and CEU have not concluded an agreement that would allow the university to continue its U.S.-accredited programs in Hungary … The departure of these U.S.-accredited programs from Hungary will be a loss for the CEU community, for the United States, and for Hungary.”

The U.S. ambassador to Hungary, David B. Cornstein, was involved in trying to negotiate a solution that would have allowed CEU to stay. The Washington Post reported that in an interview last week Cornstein declined to criticize Orbán for the failure to find a solution, instead blaming Soros for not developing a better relationship with the Hungarian prime minister.

According to the Post, Cornstein downplayed CEU’s importance -- contrasting its 1,500 students to the much larger enrollments of major U.S. universities like Ohio State University -- and described the dispute as a personal one between Orbán and Soros.

“It had to do with two men,” Cornstein told the Post. “It doesn’t have anything to do with academic freedom.”

The Hungarian government did not comment on CEU’s announcement Monday, but likewise has previously suggested that academic freedom is not at issue. Hungary's government maintains that CEU can continue to operate in Hungary through an affiliated institution.

“The CEU has an affiliate, the Közép-europai Egyetem, that is registered and accredited in Hungary. Courses may continue to be held and diplomas awarded from this Hungarian-accredited institution. So how does this have anything to do with academic freedom?” a government spokesman, Zoltán Kovács, said in November.

A spokeswoman for CEU, Ildiko Rull, said in October that the university hopes the Hungarian entity, known by the acronym KEE, “will remain intact. However, as currently all of our students are enrolled into American programs, and KEE has significantly fewer programs than CEU, it is unclear whether KEE will be viable in the long run.”

Ignatieff said Monday that CEU plans to retain some teaching and research activities in Budapest, but it is unclear just what the government will permit it to do.

"We retain accreditation and are proud of the fact that we secured accreditation in Hungary in March 2018 after external international review. So we’ll proceed on the basis that this can continue to be a teaching site of some kind. We will maintain research activities, research centers, if we can -- but notice the way I’m saying this. I have to tell you we’re in a lawless situation," Ignatieff said.

"We want to continue in Budapest as long as we can; we want to maintain this beautiful building as a resource for all the citizens of Budapest," he said. "But we’re in uncharted territory here. We're not seeking to provoke the government. I'm just saying we actually don't know what it's going to be possible for us to do."

          Gobierno dominicano no firmará el Pacto Migratorio      Cache   Translate Page      


Dalton Herrera

Santo Domingo
El Gobierno dominicano decidió que no firmará el  Pacto Mundial para la Migración Ordenada y Regular, el cual se firmaría los días 10 y 11 de diciembre en Marruecos, donde la Organización de Naciones Unidas realizará una asamblea general y la Conferencia Intergubernamental para esos asuntos.
Esta decisión es tomada por el presidente Danilo Medina, como jefe de la política exterior dominicana, luego de que una comisión interinstitucional formada por él rindiera un informe sobre el tema.
Respecto a dicho pacto, el primer país en plantear su negativa es Estados Unidos y a él se le han añadido Hungría, Austria, Australia, Bulgaria, Israel, Polonia, la República Checa e Italia. Este último dijo que no firmará hasta no tener una aprobación del Parlamento, porque cree que sería una decisión que afectará a sus ciudadanos. 
La ONU había dicho que no obliga a ningún país a pertenecer, pero especificó que podría haber consecuencias como la perdida de la credibilidad internacional para los que dejen de formar parte del pacto. 
El pacto creado ONU, detalla 23 puntos que tratan temas como la prevención de la trata de personas a causa de la migración, la gestión de fronteras más seguras, la eliminación de la discriminación y la promoción de las transferencias de remesas más rápidas, seguras y baratas.
De igual que la mejora de la protección consular, el empoderamiento de los migrantes para que sean incluidos como parte de la sociedad, solo utilizar la detención migratoria como medida de último recurso, el salvaguardar vidas y establecer esfuerzos internacionales coordinados sobre migrantes desaparecidos.

Porsche 360+, el nuevo asistente personal de la marca de deportivos

La llegada del nuevo Porsche 911 al Salón del Los Ángeles no ha sido la única novedad del fabricante alemán, que ha aprovechado el debut del nuevo deportivo para presentar una nueva aplicación llamada "Porsche 360+", abriendo un nuevo capítulo en la entrega de servicios a los clientes.

La aplicación está disponible para smartphones de Google y Apple, actuando como un asistente personal y abriendo nuevas posibilidades, desde servicios de noticias hasta reserva de restaurantes, hoteles o compra de entradas para eventos, las 24 horas durante los siete días de la semana, además de enviar sugerencias en función de los hábitos y del estilo de vida de los clientes.

Por ahora, se encuentra limitado su uso a los propietarios del nuevo 911, pero la marca asegura que en unos meses se extenderá al resto de modelos. Mientras tanto, la aplicación contiene varias categorías con los diferentes servicios, además de establecer comunicación con la misma a través de mensajes o envío de emails, incluso compartir fotografías.

Este servicio digital no es exclusivo para los clientes de Porsche, sino que puede utilizarlo cualquiera que lo desee. Eso sí, acceder a los exquisitos servicios y ofertas de la marca tiene un precio de 99 euros al mes. Los nuevos servicios digitales de la marca también comprenden las aplicaciones "Porsche Impact" -una calculadora de emisiones- y "Porsche Road Trip"una guía turística digital.

Esta última permite planificar viajes por todo el mundo. Disponible también para el sistema de información y entretenimiento embarcado en el nuevo deportivo, el funcionamiento en ambos es idéntico: basta introducir el punto de salida y el de destino para que el sistema contemple y ofrezca rutas alternativas, incluso pudiendo decidir la duración del viaje o puntos de interés en el camino.

Para los más atrevidos de la tecnología, los especialistas de la marca han incluido una función de "generador aleatorio de rutas", aunque por ahora solo dispone de trazados en países como Alemania, Austria y Suiza, ampliando a otros países más tarde. El sistema es personalizable y se completa con la posibilidad de almacenar los viajes realizados en un área personal.

          EU reaches political deal on banking reform, few issues still open- Austrian finmin      Cache   Translate Page

          The stories fascist Europe tells itself, and how to correct them      Cache   Translate Page      

What can the UK learn from those fighting the far right across Europe? Take history seriously

Memorial to "the victims of the Nazis", Budapest.

Fascists are obsessed with history. Their ideology is less a doctrine about the economy or the future and more a story about identity and the past. It is harvested from half-truths about great victories and cruel injustices, spun into national myths about superiority and struggle, and applied as a bandage to wounded egos in times of trouble. Fascism is a story learnt in childhood, and the fight against fascism is a battle for truth about the past.

In Hungary, the front line in that argument was, for a moment, led by Kálmán Sütö, the homeless former truck driver who sells the country’s street magazine outside the gold-plated national parliament. When Viktor Orbán’s government erected a monument to “the victims of the Nazis” not far from Kálmán’s patch, he made a placard: “Horthy was the biggest Nazi of them all!”, and signed it “Kálmán the historian”. The iconography of the memorial implies that Hungary as a whole was the victim, deflecting from the historical reality that under Miclós Horthy, the country was fascist in its own right.

For Orbán, rewriting the national story of the second world war to make the Hungarian state the victim of Nazi aggression rather than a murderer of Jews, Roma, LGBTIQ people, disabled people, communists and trade unionists allows his regime to ignore the true lessons of history, and once more to draw boundaries around who counts as ‘us’, once more to promote hatred of those very same groups.

The protests against this rewriting of history became so big that Orbán was, Sütö told me, afraid. Hungary’s post-modern dictator erected a barrier around his monument to a false past, and our homeless historian was eventually arrested for decorating this fence with a more accurate account of what happened 75 years ago. At the police station, he told me with a smile, he insisted that the officers write on his papers the full list of his specific objections.

It’s not just warped stories about the second world war which scar Hungarian history. The treaty of Trianon, signed in 1920, confirmed peace between Hungary and the allied powers of the 1914-18 war. It was part of the end of the Austro-Hungarian empire and, as far as Hungarians are concerned, they lost two-thirds of their country (the peoples who gained independence as a result have a somewhat different narrative).

Olivio Kocsis-Cake is the country’s first black MP and the leader of Dialogue for Hungary, a member of the European Green Party. He told me that a huge portion of Orbán’s rhetoric is focussed on history, and on the injustice of Trianon in particular. As he was in full flow, in English, his aide quickly intervened in Hungarian, telling him to clarify that the treaty was indeed unjust – which he duly did. Even Hungary’s Green Party doesn’t dare suggest support for a century-old treaty that gave some self-determination to Slovaks, Croats and Romanians.

I got a liftshare (along with my Hungarian friend) to Miskolc in the north-east of the country. The man who took us, an off-duty police officer, spent the whole journey talking about the Roma people in the city. The government, he said, had promised to clear them from their homes in “the numbered streets”. But he thought they were only saying it to get votes, and wouldn’t really act. Roma people, he believed, were all criminals. He talked about children growing up with mothers with “three lovers”. He didn’t talk with hatred, but with the banal practicality of a technician, saying that it’s important to understand that they had been raised this way. The ultimate solution would be to take the children away, and force them to be raised in boarding schools.

József Csendes, a local Roma sociologist and activist, said, unprompted, that he was worried the government would take their children away: “We don’t want to suffer the same fate as the native Americans,” he said, though he later downplayed the likelihood of this happening. Roma children in a school common room got me dancing to YouTube videos of what they called “gypsy music” (the term is contested, but they embraced it) and told me how they are forced to get on trams at the front so that their tickets can be checked, while everyone else gets on where they please. A couple of them, whose families are over the border in Slovakia, showed me a video containing evidence of Slovak riot police attacking their village and beating up its Roma residents.

Orbán – described by many of the people I spoke to as a dictator – has ramped up rhetoric against immigrants in recent years. But in a country with almost no immigration, the real meaning is clear. Just as his attacks on George Soros are coded anti-semitism, “migrants” really means “Roma”.

Austrian victimhood

"Kill the Jew" board game.

In Vienna I got a preview of a new museum that aims to tell Austrians a more accurate version of history than the one they have been taught. The country has long liked to tell itself that it was the first victim of the Nazis. But the reality is that it had a fascist ruler, Englebert Dollfuss, before Hitler deposed him, and, as photos displayed in the new museum show, the Fuhrer was greeted by huge “Sieg Heil”-ing crowds in Vienna when he arrived. Austrian women stitched swastika flags, and children played a board game called ‘kill the Jew’.). A huge Trojan horse at the centre of the exhibition is used to argue that the lie that Nazism was entirely imposed on the country allowed Austrian Nazis off the hook – to the extent that second-world-war fascists held government positions in Austria for four decades after the war.

Today, with Austria governed by a coalition between the conservative People’s Party and the far-right Freedom Party, this battle over the past has become urgent. The Freedom Party was founded by (‘ex’) Nazis in the 1950s, and its members wore blue cornflowers until a month before the elections late last year: in the 1930s, the cornflower was worn by Austrian Nazis so they could recognise each other, though the anti-immigrant party founded by Nazis likes to pretend the connection is just a coincidence.

At the weekly protest against the ruling parties, though, people talked more about the present and the future. An ecologist at the local university described how a clamp-down on NGOs risks lakes and rivers. A young black man talked about the impact on refugees. A teacher talked about her fear of cuts to public spending. A disabled man talked about the assault on the rights of the disabled. A group of trans protesters talked about the attack on their rights. And one of the organisers talked about how the misogyny of the far right, how they are trying to push women back into the home, and how the resistance is feminist.

Italian memories and France’s ‘golden age’

The squatted stables, Turin.

In Turin, I went to the former stables of the Italian royal family, now squatted, where a leading lawyer was talking about the new government’s proposed anti-migrant laws to a lecture theatre full of attentive students. As fire jugglers lit the courtyard outside orange, I spoke to a young artist who had taken a break from the talk because the stories being told were too horrifying. When I asked about the far-right Lega getting into government, she too began by talking about people’s view of history. In Italy, she believes, fascism has been blamed on one man – Mussolini. Rather than try to grapple with the murky undercurrents in their own national mythology, too many people in the country are content with focussing on a long-gone man. The result, she argues, is that many younger people don’t see fascism as a real, living threat.

Later that week, at the studio of a pirate radio station, I spoke to a vineyard worker who said he’s a communist, but his parents and many of his friends are fascists. My first question was, “What do they mean when they say they are fascist?” and, again, his first answer was that it was about an understanding of the past, a view of history and how that shapes your understanding of your culture.

In a week in Italy, more than one person talked about the sudden mushrooming of racism against black people, how people they hadn’t previously thought of as bigots had started using the Italian equivalent of the “N” word. A young barman in a village in the Alps (where everyone I saw was white) described how “older people hate black people” and how, watching the TV coverage of migrants arriving from North Africa, “people became racist”.

In Turin, while the refugee detention centre was covered in anti-racist slogans, this grafito showed a different view.

"Roma = ovens" - grafitti in Turin

In Paris, political organiser Maïder Piola-Urtizberea talked about Marine Le Pen’s obsession with France’s ‘golden age’ – an era that, she says, is never quite defined. And, as in Italy, Austria and Hungary, the second world war has played a major part in the political story of the French far right. Le Pen’s father and predecessor as party leader was a convicted Holocaust denier and, during the 2017 election, she and Emmanuel Macron fought a bitter battle over France’s responsibility for the arrest and deportation to death camps of 13,000 Parisian Jews during the war.

The fight back for history

During that election, Macron went to Algeria and demanded that the French state apologise for what he later called “crimes against humanity” committed when the country was a colony run from Paris: a history which has re-emerged as debates about migration surface once more.

In Turin, there is a museum dedicated to the resistance against fascism. It is a collection of video testimonials that recount the experiences of people during the war: mostly partisans or people who were against the war, but also a man who had been a teenage supporter of Mussolini. It would be hard to leave with the reassuring belief that Mussolini was Italy’s lone fascist.

In Hungary, in the face of the most repressive government in the EU, people have protested against the warping of history. Like Italy, Austria now has a museum dedicated to telling the less savoury stories from the countries’ pasts.

But I wasn’t travelling around Europe to see the sights and gawp at their problems. I was there to study how Britain should respond to the rise of the far right here. And what was perhaps most striking is that, although no British government has imposed fascism at home, imperial revisionism and nationalist nonsense permeate almost all of our official historical institutions: not because they lie, but because of the truths they don’t tell.

This is the case with school text books and TV histories. But it’s worth for a moment just thinking about our curatorial failure. Although Liverpool does host a museum of slavery, where is the collection which tells British people about the genocide British colonisers completed in Tasmania? Where can you go to find out about the Irish famine, the Bengal famine, the plundering of Persia, the castration of the Mau Mau, the looting of India? The first opium war? Or the second? Where can you learn about the brutal conquests in Africa? The torture in Yemen? The violence in Cyprus? The invasion of New Zealand? The treatment by the British of First Nation Canadians?

These are the stories of how Britain got rich, how we became who we are. And yet they are almost entirely undocumented in Britain’s vast array of galleries, museums and public collections. Go to the Imperial War Museum and there’s barely a whisper about any of the imperial wars, just endless artefacts from the second world war, the one moment Britain can lay claim to having been the good guy. Go to the British Museum and you’ll see a parade of plunder, displayed with pride, as though it wasn’t looted by vandals. Go round any of our major cities, and you’ll find it pock-marked with statues of imperial thugs.

Contemporary British history is a story about how this archipelago emerges from the shadow of empire. As with Hungary, and Italy, and Austria, and France, whether we escape into the light will be shaped by how we understand what brought us here. Fascism is a view of history. The fight against fascism is a fight over the past, and it’s time for Britain to start telling the whole truth.

Check out our top features from around the BroadwayWorld below! Want more great global content? Check out our "Around The World" section!


Sarasota: Contributor Peter Nason reviews THE MUSIC MAN at the Asolo Repertory Theatre, writing "If you're like me, then you probably rolled your eyes and groaned to yourself, "Not another MUSIC MAN!" the moment you heard that the Asolo Repertory Theatre was tackling the Meredith Willson classic. Has the show become so ubiquitous that we can't help but think that we don't need to see this overcooked masterpiece yet again? But the Asolo is THE Asolo, and this is not your typical, cobwebbed MUSIC MAN. This production is infused with more tapping than The Tap-Dance Kid and is given an A+ treatment. It's so full of life that I didn't want it to end. So, in honor of its most famous song, "76 Trombones," here are 76 reasons to venture to this must-see Asolo production..."


Los Angeles: Contributor Jeffrey Scott reviews MIDDLE8 at The Stella Adler Theatre, writing "Led by a truly gifted ensemble of performers who put their souls on the line to tell this story every single performance, this story revolves around 5 childhood friends (and the women who loved them) who have formed a band. The band members plan to gather together (after years of separation) for the 40th birthday of founding band member Adam (played with incredible heart by Matt Kaminsky). Moment by moment, minute by minute, month by month, year by year, the layers are peeled away from this proverbial friendship-onion and we get a glimpse into the lives of these five men (and the women who loved them) through song, scenes, and monologues that explain how they all arrived at where they are in life, where they went, who they loved, and how they left this world."


UK / West End: Contributor Cindy Marcolina reviews ANNA KARENINA at The Actors' Church, writing "After a sold-out run at Oxford University, composer Maria Shepard took her musical based on Lev Tolstoy's Anna Karenina for a one-night engagement at The Actors' Church in London as part of Iris Theatre's Workin Process. Considered one of the greatest literary accomplishment of all time, it's certainly an ambitious venture for the young Shepard, who pens a mature revisitation of the material directed by Jasmine White."


Maine: Contributor Dan Marois reviews THE NUTCRACKER at Maine State Ballet, writing "The interesting thing about The Nutcracker at the Merrill Auditorium in Portland, Maine is just how quickly an audience can settle into it, year after year, like a cup of hot chocolate on a cold night. The venue is packed with an audience of all ages, some dressed in their 'night on the town' finery while others sport flannel shirts, jeans and a baseball cap. That's the magic of this production, a full-scale ballet and orchestra that appeals to a wide-ranging audience here in Maine."


Buffalo: Contributor Michael Rabice reviews HAMILTON at Shea's Buffalo Theatre, writing "It's not often that a Broadway musical creates so much press and hype that almost every US citizen has heard of the phenomenon that is HAMILTON. The show that got it's start off Broadway at NY's Public Theatre has taken the country by storm. Still the hottest ticket on Broadway 3 years after it has opened, the touring production has been anticipated in almost every US National tour market for a full two years prior to it actually surfacing. This has created record breaking subscription ticket sales just so everyone could be guaranteed a seat for HAMILTON."


Sioux Falls: Contributor Katie Becker reviews ELF THE MUSICAL in Sioux Falls, writing "With the turkey eaten and the black Friday deals purchased, Thanksgiving is officially in the rearview mirror and it's onward towards Christmas! ELF THE MUSICAL kicked off a three day run at The Washington Pavilion on Friday evening, bringing Christmas cheer to Sioux Falls the best way they know how, by 'singing loud for all to hear.'"


Detroit: Contributor Julie Yolles reviews GUYS AND DOLLS Scores at the Players Guild Of Dearborn, writing "Guys and Dolls marked Kim Donovan's directorial debut 27 years at the Players Guild of Dearborn. She was pregnant at the time with her daughter, Maura. Frank Loesser's score must have channeled Maura's musical theatre talents in utero as she's now starring as Adelaide, "the well-known fiancee," in the Players Guild of Dearborn's 2018 production of Guys and Dolls serendipitously directed by Kim Donovan."


Ft. Myers/Naples: Contributor Emily Yorgey reviews ELF at Broadway Palm, writing "The Hobbs family members, Walter (Christopher Russell), Emily (Molly Samson), and Michael (Nicholas Salerno at my performance), all were excellent in their roles as well. Walter grows a lot emotionally throughout ELF, and Russell executed this very well. I also liked seeing Walter's relationships with Emily and Michael change as Buddy becomes a part of their family."


Austria: Contributor Martin Ganeider reviews AN AMERICAN IN PARIS at Landestheater Linz, writing Winston is a powerhorse director and choreographer. His dance numbers will leave you breathless in your seats. His staging requires a lot of stamina from his actors. German speaking tripple threats are not easy to find but Linz was able to sign some of the finest for their musical ensemble."



Regional Editor Spotlight:

Peter Nason
Tampa/St. Petersburg Contributor

An actor, director, and theatre teacher, Peter Nason fell in love with the theatre at the tender age of six when he saw Mickey Rooney in "George M!" at the Shady Grove in Washington, D.C. He has appeared in dozens of productions around the country, helmed several films and directed over thirty plays. His love of the theatre, and his passion for the craft of acting and directing, has led him to reach hundreds of Florida teenagers to help make the stage their home. He has currently started a new theatre program at a Title 1 school where he hopes the students there will find the same joy of performing that he found.

A graduate of the University of Alabama and the Scuola Lorenzo de Medici in Florence, Italy, Peter is an award-winning playwright and has written for various periodicals and newspapers, including "The Tampa Tribune," where he was a book reviewer and community columnist. One of his literary heroines, the late great Pauline Kael, summed up his philosophy of reviewing: "In the arts, the critic is the only independent source of information. The rest is advertising." Peter resides in Wesley Chapel, Florida with his beloved Boston Terrier, Ike.

          On DVD: Barbara Albert's eye-popping exploration of 18th Century class, gender, music and medicine, MADEMOISELLE PARADIS      Cache   Translate Page      

Grounded by a spectacular central performance from Romanian actress Maria Dragus (whom you'll remember from her role as the pivotal daughter in Graduation), the latest film from Austrian filmmaker Barbara Albert would be a must-see for Ms Dragus' work alone. But MADEMOISELLE PARADIS demands a viewing for so many other good reasons, including its status as one of the finest "period" films to be seen in many years. Taking place in 1777, it offers such an eye-popping array of costumes, wigs, furniture, tableware and all the rest that there is almost never a moment when you will be able to look away for fear of missing something even more spectacular.

Winning the sets-'n-costumes award may seem like small potatoes, but when the potatoes are this exquisite, TrustMovies suggests taking note.

Ms Albert, shown at left (of Free Radicals and Falling, among other films), is noted -- in my book, anyway-- for most often combining ideas and current events/themes. What's particularly interesting about Mademoiselle Paradis is how the ideas and events on display, though well over two centuries old, seem as current as today.

As director and co-adaptor (with Kathrin Resitarits) of the novel by Alissa Walser, Albert tells the based-on-fact tale of Maria Theresia Paradis (Ms Dragus, at right, below), a young woman who went blind during childhood and then became something of a piano prodigy.

We see her first at a recital in which she is the "star," who seems to be both envied and made fun of by her peers. When her uber-controlling parents send her away to the home/hospital of semi-famous practitioner Franz Anton Mesmer (yes: where we got that word mesmerism) to perhaps have that blindness cured,

our young heroine encounters life and possible change in ways that she has not heretofore experienced.

Class differences are shown us via the "downstairs" maids, kitchen help and their offspring, including one young crippled boy who is both loved and taunted.

The male upper crust, of course, is shown blithely having his entitled way with the maid of his choice (Maresi Reigner, shown at right and at bottom)-- with predictable but nonetheless devastating results.

The "blindness," which Mesmer treats, seems to be receding, which of course makes us wonder if it might have been psychosomatic. Given the relationship Maria Theresia has with her nasty parents (Lukas Miko and Katja Kolm, above, left and center), this makes sense, but the filmmaker does not insist upon anything. She simply observes and lets us ponder.

Mesmer himself (well played by Devid Striesow, above, right) seems as much concerned with his own status in the medical world as with that of his patients (ever timely), but he also proves a real help to our heroine.

The biggest problem arises when, as her blindness begins to take leave, so, too, do her musical gifts. And since these account for her parents' entry into the world of the aristocracy, this can't be allowed to happen.

How some (but not nearly all) of this is resolved brings the film to its quiet, sad, and not unexpected conclusion. The journey has been thought-provoking and even, in its way, quite timely. And the spectacular visuals are like a combination of vacation and time-travel.

It seems utterly appalling that a movie this good (it's at 100 percent on Rotten Tomatoes) in so many ways -- Ms Dragus' superb performance is certainly among the year's best -- could not find even limited theatrical distribution here in the USA.

At least we're now able to see the film on DVD and streaming, thanks to First Run Features, which has released it here. It arrived on iTunes this past Tuesday, November 27, for streaming, and will hit DVD next Tuesday, December 11- - for purchase and/or (I would hope) rental.

          G20: You can smell tear gas in the streets as the oil industry squabbles      Cache   Translate Page      
What the G20 and OPEC meetings mean for the political relations, economies, and people of the world.

Last week, two important meetings took place—one, in Buenos Aires, Argentina, of the Group of 20 (G20) nations, and two, in Vienna, Austria, of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and other oil producers. The two meetings did not produce any resolution to the major economic challenges in the world. But they did soothe the nerves of financial markets. At the G20, the United States and China dialed down the temperature over trade but did not settle the long-term grievances each side has of the other. At the OPEC+ meeting, Russia and Saudi Arabia agreed to cut production and raise the price of oil despite pressure from the United States and others to keep oil prices low.

At neither meeting did the major powers find solutions to their problems. They are all caught in mazes from which there are no easy exits. But what calmed the world of finance was that the geopolitical tension between the major powers seemed to have lessened. What impact this reduced tension has for the world’s people, however, is not clear.

Trade

The “trade war” engineered by U.S. President Donald Trump against China began with tariffs and ended with a damp squib. At the G20, Trump told China’s Xi Jinping that the U.S. tariffs that would have gone up to 25 percent on $200 billion worth of Chinese imports will no longer be applied. China, for its part, said that it would import more goods from the United States. No specifics were announced, which is why the tensions over even this agreement spilled over onto Twitter (courtesy of Trump’s hyperbole) and into more sober statements from the Chinese government.

The more fundamental questions of intellectual property and currency valuation remain unsolved. The United States accuses China of theft of the intellectual property of U.S. firms, but the Chinese counter—as they have in the arbitration panels of the World Trade Organization—that they merely draw from technology transferred as a result of commercial agreements freely made by firms eager to use Chinese labor. It will be impossible to resolve these two problems, since neither side sees the issues in the same way. Their worldviews regarding intellectual property and currency valuation are utterly alien to each other. If the United States believes that China is unfairly valuing its currency, the Chinese point to the unfair advantage that the dollar has over every currency in the world since it is used as one of the major global currencies for facilitation of trade and for the storage of wealth.

Oil

Russia’s Vladimir Putin and Saudi Arabia’s Mohammed bin Salman offered each other a friendly hand slap at the G20. Everyone seemed happy to see Mohammed bin Salman, despite the clear evidence of his role in the murder of the Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

But the real agreements between Russia and Saudi Arabia were not directly made in Buenos Aires. They were made more quietly in Vienna at the OPEC+ meeting. At Buenos Aires, Putin said, “yes, we have an agreement to prolong our accords.” He was referring to the deal between Russia and Saudi Arabia since 2016 to manage oil prices to their mutual benefit. The deal notwithstanding, Saudi Arabia has continued to pump itself into trouble—flooding the market with oil, driving prices down and depleting its own treasury as a result. Now Russia is eager to see oil production cuts and oil prices rise. Trapped by sanctions and by low oil prices, Russia has plunged into internal economic difficulties. The real issue was how much each country inside and outside OPEC should pump. That is why Putin said, “there is no final deal on volumes.” In fact, even after the deal has begun to emerge, there is no final deal. Saudi Arabia has not been a good partner here. It has pumped outside the numbers over the course of the past few years, largely under pressure from the United States.

There are two reasons why the United States wants low oil prices, despite the fact that the U.S. is now one of the world’s largest oil producers. First, low oil prices mean an immediate subsidy for the U.S. consumer and for U.S. manufacturing firms. There is no economic incentive to move to renewable energy when oil prices are low. Second, low oil prices hit adversaries of the U.S.-led world order that—as it happens—are major oil producers. The list includes Iran and Venezuela, two countries that have been sent into internal turmoil as oil prices have plummeted. But the United States has sufficient tools to hurt these countries without forcing oil prices down. For instance, even if oil prices rise, U.S. sanctions can be harsh enough to cut Iranian and Venezuelan oil out of the market. The lack of Iranian and Venezuelan oil operates as an effective cut in oil production, which will itself raise oil prices.

Saudi Arabia has already begun to pressure Libya and Nigeria to reduce oil exports, although both these African countries are reliant upon oil revenues. Saudi Arabia has succeeded in pushing Qatar out of OPEC on political grounds, but since Qatar only produces 2 percent of OPEC’s crude oil the departure, Qatexit is not meaningful. Inside the world of oil, there are those who are always pushed aside so that others can benefit.

Oil Buyers’ Club

In 2005, Indian Petroleum Minister Mani Shankar Aiyar assembled his counterparts from across Asia to start a discussion on a buyers’ club. The precise issue on the table was the “Asian Premium” charged by Saudi Arabia and other oil producers to Asian countries. The “Asian Premium” is substantial—close to $10 billion per year for the Asian consumers of Gulf oil. It is what bothered Aiyar and the other oil ministers. But they did not come to any agreement.

Asia is the largest importer of oil in the world. India and China, with the United States, are the three largest importers of oil. Right behind them are Japan and South Korea. If you add the oil imports by China, India, Japan and South Korea, then these four Asian countries import a full third of world oil imports. They are both reliant upon the oil exporters, but they also have power as a bloc of consumers.

In 2012, China’s premier Wen Jiabao said that there needed to be a counter-cartel to OPEC that should include Europe and the United States. Interest in his proposal was minimal. Oil had reached $100 per barrel. It stifled economic growth and did not move any of these industrial giants toward non-carbon renewable fuel.

The issue of a buyers’ cartel came back on the table in April this year at the International Energy Forum. The chairman of Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) Sanjiv Singh and the chairman of China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC) Wang Yilin then met in Beijing to go deeper into the possibility. By June, China and India—which import 17 percent of the world’s oil—had begun to openly talk about a buyers’ cartel to help create “stable and moderate” oil prices, as India’s current Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan put it.

China and India have been upset by the U.S. sanctions on Iran. They have felt that these produce an adverse impact on Asian economies. They are joined by Japan and the European Union, who are also not pleased with these sanctions. It is now being said that if China and India establish a buyers’ club, Japan and Europe will join in.

Smell of Tear Gas

From the air-conditioned rooms of the oligarchy, we go to the tear gas of the streets.

Protests in Paris, France, have been the most violent in decades. The yellow vests (gilets jaunes) appeared as if out of nowhere to demonstrate against the French government’s hike in fuel prices. They make the case that the violence of the economy has destroyed their ability to function. Any violence on the streets is a reflection of the violence that structures their lives. The streets of Paris smelled of tear gas.

In Buenos Aires, Argentina, labor unions and political groups of one kind or another planned massive protests against the G20. They wanted to scream at their leaders, who have been deaf to their pleas. But the Argentinian government held the G20 meeting at the Costa Salguero convention center, on the magnificent Rio de La Plata. Police cordoned off the area, while the coast guard boats sailed up and down the river. No one could get near the site. None of the leaders were interrupted by the chants.

There were no protests in Vienna. The OPEC building was nonetheless surrounded by the elite WEGA units. No one knew that the meeting was being held. There is so little democracy in the institutions that structure our lives.

So you finally stop pretending that what I have been referring to does not exist. Rather than making false comparisons, perhaps it would be be wiser to appreciate the current scale of the problem regarding this new capitalist/fascist hybrid. Regarding France: the party headed up by the daughter and political heir of a notable holocaust denier and apologist for Vichy France is riding high in the polls and riding high on the wave of violent protests against a ‘moderate, centrist’ capitalist government. Whenever moderates talk of a far right threat, conservatives always hint that the far right is preferable to communism. That’s how Hitler got such a high proportion of the votes in German elections of the 1930s. In Austria, the country of Hitler’s birth, a far right party founded by one of his disciples, is currently in coalition government with the conservatives. If you are genuinely against the far right Mr MacD, then you may wish to take greater note of the scale of the problem.

CID RIM (Credit: Emir Eralp)
A dazzling collaboration from two vital artists...

Austrian producer CID RIM has always had a jazz influence, always had an interest in that world.

It's often surfaced in his music, that sense of rhythmic daring pulling his productions away from the norm, and towards the cutting edge.

New single 'Control' finds this bubbling to the surface, but it does so in an obtuse, unexpected fashion.

A full collaboration with stellar alt-pop vocalist Denai Moore, 'Control' matches pulsating, visceral electronics against those breakneck changes, and a stellar future-soul vocal.

The full video is a dazzling affair, featuring an improv dancer reacting to the music in a busy city scene.

CID RIM comments: "I always felt I had a strong connection to dancers, especially in the rather free improv world, so I'm very happy with having a dancer in one of my music videos for the second time now, especially as it's again an improvised performance without choreography. A performance where the main goal is not to dance to but BE the music and to BE the energy, which is very similar to what I try to achieve on the stage at my concerts. I can relate."

French newspaper reveals an important factor in Putin’s international success.

(updated:  11:07 05.12.2018 )
34 58100 609 57
 

MOSCOW, December 5 - RIA News.  Over the years, Russia has emerged victorious from most international geopolitical conflicts, and the reason for this is the magnificent education of President Vladimir Putin, the French newspaper Figaro writes  .

 

His understanding of geography, knowledge of the political map of the planet and the main features of each state and nation play an important role in the success of Russia in the international arena, the newspaper notes.

 

As an example, the newspaper cites the case when Putin interrupted the speech of Minister of Agriculture Alexander Tkachev, who spoke about the supply of pork to Indonesia. The president explained that he was mistaken, since it’s about a predominantly Muslim country, where Islam is practiced by 87 percent of the population, it’s impossible to supply pork there. Unlike other world leaders, Putin is aware of the cultural difference in education and mindset of other nations, which allows him to pursue a more thoughtful policy, the newspaper notes.

 

At the same time, for many years now, Western leaders, who absolutely do not understand this issue, have come out against it. For example, Nicolas Sarkozy and George Bush did not know the difference between Shiites and Sunnis at the beginning of their presidential terms, which led to a catastrophe in their policies in the Middle East. The same goes for current leaders. For example, Donald Trump confuses Austria and Australia, and Emmanuel Macron calls Guiana, a French possession in South America, an island, the newspaper adds.

 

Such weak knowledge of the Western leadership in geography leads him to a complete misunderstanding of key international geostrategic issues and the desire to get short-term gain. As an example, Figaro cites the fact that in Mali Islamists were considered opponents of French interests, but in Syria were considered as allies against Bashar al-Assad.

 

The reason for this, as noted by Figaro, are the weak educational systems in the West. For example, this discipline is not included in the compulsory school curriculum in the United States, and in French educational institutions geography almost does not devote time. The second reason is the complete lack of interest among many Western leaders. They are concerned only with economic and financial issues or even more useless topics.

 

Thus, they do not have a clear long-term strategy that would allow them to understand who enemies and friends are, which countries cannot be out of balance, to maintain peace in the whole world, and what is the real power relationship between states. All this leads to many geopolitical mistakes, for which the whole world now has to pay. For example, the emergence of the “Islamic State” * is a consequence of the destruction of Iraq by the Americans in 2003 and the support of armed rebels in Syria.

 

But at the same time, this explains why Russia, with its clear strategy in all regions of the world, constantly emerges victorious from most world conflicts, although in terms of political, economic and military resources, Western countries are much stronger, the publication emphasizes.

          OPEC, non-OPEC members to discuss Qatari withdrawal influence on oil deal      Cache   Translate Page      

Moscow (Russia): The Ministerial Monitoring Committee of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and non-cartel oil producers will be discussing on Wednesday the influence that Qatari withdrawal from OPEC may have on the oil output cut deal, Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak said here on Tuesday.

"We'll discuss it tomorrow," he told reporters on the sidelines of a forum.

On Wednesday, the 175th ordinary OPEC meeting will be held in Vienna, while the Austrian capital will also host meetings of the OPEC and non-OPEC Joint Ministerial Monitoring Committee and of all signatories of the oil output cut deal.

On Monday, Qatar announced its decision to withdraw from OPEC on January 1, 2019, in order to concentrate on boosting its liquefied natural gas production.

OPEC and several non-OPEC oil producers reached a deal in Vienna in 2016 to cut oil output by a total of 1.8 million barrels per day in an effort to stabilize global oil prices. Non-OPEC states pledged to jointly reduce oil output by 558,000 barrels per day. The agreement, which came into effect in 2017, has been extended twice since then and is set to remain in force until the end of 2018.

At the beginning of July 2019, #MeetESO will take the winners to the La Silla Observatory at the outskirts of the Chilean Atacama Desert, where they will have the opportunity to join eclipse enthusiasts to witness the solar eclipse.

From La Silla, the eight winners will travel to Paranal, home of ESO’s Very Large Telescope. If time allows, #MeetESO participants will also visit the construction site of ESO’s Extremely Large Telescope, the world’s biggest eye on the sky.
Finally, the group will visit the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA), the largest ground-based astronomical project in existence, led by ESO together with its international partners.

          148 Nations Disavow Jewish Ties To Jerusalem, Temple Mount      Cache   Translate Page      
A general view of Jerusalem's old city shows the Dome of the Rock in the compound known to Muslims a
The UN General Assembly in New York on Friday approved six anti-Israel resolutions including two that ignored Jewish ties to the Temple Mount.
The primary resolution on Jerusalem, that passed 148-11 with 14 abstentions, also disavowed Israeli sovereignty in Jerusalem.  
Both that text and a second more global one on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, which passed 156-8, with 12 abstentions, spoke of Judaism’s most holy site – The Temple Mount – solely by its Muslim name of al-Haram al-Sharif.
The votes comes as Israel is working to shore up international support for its sovereignty in Jerusalem.
A third text, which was approved 99-10 with 66 abstentions, called on Israel to withdraw from the Golan Heights.
The United States, Canada and Australia voted against all six resolutions, which are the first batch of some 20 resolutions that the UNGA annually passes against Israel.
“We live in a time of many crises, crises that are raging around the Middle East and around the world. It is a shame that rather than addressing these crises, the UN passes so many biased resolutions,” said Israeli Deputy Permanent Representative Noa Furman.
She said she was particularly concerned by the two resolutions that ignored Jewish and Christian ties to the Temple Mount.
“This omission was deliberate. It shows yet another instance of the Palestinian refusal to recognize the proven historical connection between Judaism, Christianity, the Temple Mount and Jerusalem as a whole.
“The international community must stop participating in such a blatant denial of history. You must not permit these blatant attempts to delegitimize Israel,” Furman said.
The European Union, which supported both texts, warned it could stop doing so unless more include language was used to reference holy sites in Jerusalem.
Speaking on behalf of the EU, the Austrian representative said the EU stresses “the need for language on the holy sites of Jerusalem to reflect the importance and historical significance of the holy sites for the three monotheistic religions.”
It added, “future choice of language may affect the EU’s collective support for the resolutions.”
PLO Ambassador to the UN Riyad Mansour thanked UN member states for their support of texts that reference a two-state resolution to the conflict based on the pre-1967 lines with east Jerusalem as the capital of a Palestinian state.
This “global consensus, which all of us have worked for, is still the cornerstone of finding a just and lasting peace to the conflict.”
US representative Leslie Ordeman, who is deputy political coordinator, also spoke out against the texts.
“We are disappointed that despite messages of support for reform, member states continue to single out Israel with these resolutions.
“As the United States has repeatedly made clear, this dynamic is unacceptable. Again, we see resolutions that are quick to condemn all manner of Israeli actions, but say almost nothing about Palestinian terrorist attacks against innocent civilians. This is particularly acute now, when the rocket attacks on November 12 saw more projectiles fired on a single day than on any day since 2014.”
Both Israel and the US took issue in particular with the two resolutions passed Friday that continued to support the work of the “Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People” and the “Division for Palestinian Rights.”
“The Palestinians are the only actor in the UN system with a dedicated division within the UN Secretariat. The message that it sends is that the Palestinians never need to come back to the negotiating table – they can rely on flawed and biased mechanisms, such as these, to push their agenda,” he said.

I would like to thank the Austrian Presidency for their work in facilitating a compromise. Today, we have adopted important decisions on deep sea stocks. As you know, these are very vulnerable species that need decades to grow and reproduce. We often have incomplete knowledge about these stocks. But we know one thing for certain: many of these stocks have been overfished for years.

          4 Negara Ini Tempat Sembunyi Teraman Saat Perang Dunia III Pecah pada 2019?      Cache   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Jakarta - Ketegangan politik antara Rusia dan Ukraina masih terus memanas hingga kini. Bentrokan antara kedua negara di Selat Kerch kian memperburuk keadaan, kapal-kapal saling menembaki bak berperang.

Ukraina mengklaim bahwa kapal mereka dicegat oleh pasukan Rusia setelah melakukan perjalanan ke Mariupol, sedangkan Rusia mengaku bahwa kapal Ukraina telah melanggar batas wilayah perairan.

Menurut keterangan yang dikutip dari Express.co.uk, Rabu (5/12/2018), warga Inggris yang takut akan peristiwa tersebut telah menghindari zona berbahaya, dengan pergi ke beberapa negara yang aman untuk bersembunyi.

Britania Raya tak ingin mengambil risiko. Pemikiran ini sejalan dengan negara-negara lain seperti Kanada, Selandia Baru dan Amerika Serikat. Demikian menurut laporan dari studi yang dibuat oleh International SOS and Control Risks.

Lalu, negara mana saja yang bisa dijadikan sebagai tempat perlindungan dari pertempuran Ukraina dan Rusia, mengingat kekhawatiran munculnya "Perang Dunia III" di masa mendatang? Berikut empat di antaranya.

 

Saksikan video pilihan berikut ini:

1. Liechtenstein

Liechtenstein (AFP)#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Liechtenstein merupakan negara yang penduduknya berbicara bahasa Jerman. Ini terletak di antara Austria dan Swiss, serta dikenal sebagai salah satu negara paling aman.

Selain karena tingginya jumlah polisi yang berpatroli di jalan-jalan dan tingkat kejahatan yang rendah, lokasi Liechtenstein yang berada di tengah dua negara yang netral juga membuatnya menjadi tujuan aman untuk berlindung.

Mereka yang mencoba masuk ke negara non-Uni Eropa ini, harus terbang ke Zurich terlebih dahulu, karena Liechtenstein tidak memiliki bandara. Hal ini disebabkan oleh luas wilayahnya yang amat kecil.

2. Greenland

(Paul Daly/The Canadian Press via AP)#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Bepergian ke Greenland --salah satu pulau terbesar di dunia-- tidaklah mudah meski negara ini menjadi tujuan yang aman, karena jauh dari konflik dan letaknya yang terpencil.

Umumnya, kendala yang kerap dijumpai oleh orang-orang yang ingin pergi ke Greenland adalah mahalnya harga tiket pesawat dan tak ada penerbangan langsung. Pelancong harus mendarat terlebih dahulu di Islandia.

Populasinya yang jarang, membuat Greenland mendapat sebutan sebagai negara yang hampir tidak punya kriminalitas dan menjadikannya tempat yang sempurna untuk berlindung.

Selain itu, di Greenland, warganya tidak memiliki keselarasan politik. Sebagian besar keputusan pemerintah lokal dilakukan melalui pemerintah Denmark --negara yang juga dikatakan aman.

3. Luxembourg

Negara lain yang disebut sebagai negara teraman di dunia adalah Luxembourg. Satu-satunya ancaman kejahatan yang terjadi adalah kejahatan kecil, seperti pencopetan.

Namun, negara ini juga menjadi salah satu negara kaya, yang artinya Luxembourg adalah tempat yang mahal untuk berlindung. Dengan perbatasan yang meliputi Belgia, Prancis dan Jerman, negara tersebut telah dikuasai selama Perang Dunia I dan Perang Dunia II, meskipun menyatakan netralitasnya.

Meski demikian, pemerintah Luxembourg menjamin layanan kesehatan bagi rakyatnya, distrik yang aman, dan infrastruktur yang memadai.

4. Islandia

Nyaris serupa dengan Greenland, Islandia juga merupakan pulau kecil yang letaknya hampir terpencil. Negara ini juga tetap netral, meskipun diambil alih oleh Inggris pada tahun 1940. Perang Dunia II menyebabkan ekspansi ekonomi di wilayah tersebut.

Sayangnya, biaya hidup di Islandia pun terbilang tak murah, karena itulah tingkat kejahatan menjadi sangat rendah di negara tersebut. Meski demikian, ada perjanjian militer yang dilakukan oleh Islandia dengan Norwegia dan Denmark, termasuk Coast Guard atau Penjaga Pantai.

          Apple's recent woes are bleeding into its global supply chain as stock selling accelerates      Cache   Translate Page      

Tim Cook

  • Apple and its suppliers were among the hardest hit during Tuesday's broad plunge in both US and Asian markets. Some suppliers have slashed their targets, citing weaker conditions. 
  • The selling continued across Apple's overseas supply chain on Wednesday.
  • The iPhone maker closed down 4.4% Tuesday, hurt in part by an HSBC downgrade that cited "market saturation."

Apple's stock woes are bleeding into its global supply chain.

Shares of iPhone suppliers tumbled on Wednesday after Apple's stock tumbled 4.4% on Tuesday — outpacing a particularly brutal 3.8% drop in the Nasdaq. Apple stock was hurt in part Tuesday by a downgrade by HSBC, which cited an overwhelming dependence on a single product, the iPhone.

"What has made the success of Apple, a concentrated portfolio of highly desirable (and pricey) products, is now facing the reality of market saturation," HSBC said. 

Here's a round-up of the damage in Apple's suppliers in Asia: 

  • Pegatron, in Taiwan, fell 1.7%
  • The Chinese acoustics technology supplier AAC Technologies lost 3.7%
  • Taiwan's Flexium Interconnect was down 3.9%
  • Taiwan's Largan Precision declined 3.7%

In the US, Lumentum Holdings, an optical products manufacturer, fell 5.5% in regular trading on Tuesday after it cut its outlook last month.

Cirrus Logic closed down 1.9% down — having fallen as much as 5.8% days after it cut its December revenue outlook because of recent weakness in the smartphone market. Apple accounts for about 82% of Cirrus' sales.

Similarly, Qorvo, a North Carolina semiconductor company, dropped 5.3% on Tuesday amid concerns about Apple, which recently lost its status as the world's most valuable business.

Another Apple supplier, Broadcom, which reports earnings on Thursday, fell 4.1%. The company, which designs semiconductors, is believed to make about $10 on each iPhone sold, according to JPMorgan, cited by CNBC. 

Other manufacturers, such as Austria's AMS, which develops facial-recognition software, cut its revenue forecast last month as iPhone sales diminished.

Menurut keterangan yang dikutip dari Express.co.uk, Rabu (5/12/2018), warga Inggris yang takut akan peristiwa tersebut telah menghindari zona berbahaya, dengan pergi ke beberapa negara yang aman untuk bersembunyi.

Britania Raya tak ingin mengambil risiko. Pemikiran ini sejalan dengan negara-negara lain seperti Kanada, Selandia Baru dan Amerika Serikat. Demikian menurut laporan dari studi yang dibuat oleh International SOS and Control Risks.

Lalu, negara mana saja yang bisa dijadikan sebagai tempat perlindungan dari pertempuran Ukraina dan Rusia, mengingat kekhawatiran munculnya "Perang Dunia III" di masa mendatang? Berikut empat di antaranya.

 

Saksikan video pilihan berikut ini:

1. Liechtenstein

Liechtenstein merupakan negara yang penduduknya berbicara bahasa Jerman. Ini terletak di antara Austria dan Swiss, serta dikenal sebagai salah satu negara paling aman.

Selain karena tingginya jumlah polisi yang berpatroli di jalan-jalan dan tingkat kejahatan yang rendah, lokasi Liechtenstein yang berada di tengah dua negara yang netral juga membuatnya menjadi tujuan aman untuk berlindung.

Mereka yang mencoba masuk ke negara non-Uni Eropa ini, harus terbang ke Zurich terlebih dahulu, karena Liechtenstein tidak memiliki bandara. Hal ini disebabkan oleh luas wilayahnya yang amat kecil.

2. Greenland

Bepergian ke Greenland --salah satu pulau terbesar di dunia-- tidaklah mudah meski negara ini menjadi tujuan yang aman, karena jauh dari konflik dan letaknya yang terpencil.

Umumnya, kendala yang kerap dijumpai oleh orang-orang yang ingin pergi ke Greenland adalah mahalnya harga tiket pesawat dan tak ada penerbangan langsung. Pelancong harus mendarat terlebih dahulu di Islandia.

Populasinya yang jarang, membuat Greenland mendapat sebutan sebagai negara yang hampir tidak punya kriminalitas dan menjadikannya tempat yang sempurna untuk berlindung.

Selain itu, di Greenland, warganya tidak memiliki keselarasan politik. Sebagian besar keputusan pemerintah lokal dilakukan melalui pemerintah Denmark --negara yang juga dikatakan aman.

3. Luxembourg

Negara lain yang disebut sebagai negara teraman di dunia adalah Luxembourg. Satu-satunya ancaman kejahatan yang terjadi adalah kejahatan kecil, seperti pencopetan.

Namun, negara ini juga menjadi salah satu negara kaya, yang artinya Luxembourg adalah tempat yang mahal untuk berlindung. Dengan perbatasan yang meliputi Belgia, Prancis dan Jerman, negara tersebut telah dikuasai selama Perang Dunia I dan Perang Dunia II, meskipun menyatakan netralitasnya.

Meski demikian, pemerintah Luxembourg menjamin layanan kesehatan bagi rakyatnya, distrik yang aman, dan infrastruktur yang memadai.

4. Islandia

Nyaris serupa dengan Greenland, Islandia juga merupakan pulau kecil yang letaknya hampir terpencil. Negara ini juga tetap netral, meskipun diambil alih oleh Inggris pada tahun 1940. Perang Dunia II menyebabkan ekspansi ekonomi di wilayah tersebut.

Sayangnya, biaya hidup di Islandia pun terbilang tak murah, karena itulah tingkat kejahatan menjadi sangat rendah di negara tersebut. Meski demikian, ada perjanjian militer yang dilakukan oleh Islandia dengan Norwegia dan Denmark, termasuk Coast Guard atau Penjaga Pantai.

Jose Mourinho the favourite to get the boot after Mark Hughes finally falls.

Next Premier League Manager To Be Sacked Jose Mourinho 5/4£30Bet £10 Get £30 Free when joining 888Sport

READ MORE: Mark Hughes the latest boss to get the boot, but who will replace him at Southampton? 

Jose Mourinho is the new favourite in the Premier League sack race with 888sport, with the Manchester United boss just 5/4 to be the next manager to leave his club. After Mark Hughes was fired by Southampton on Monday, Mourinho has moved to the head of the betting, with the Portuguese seemingly on borrowed time at Old Trafford.  United have endured a miserable start to the season, and sit 16 points behind table-topping Manchester City, and eight points off Arsenal in fourth.  There have been a lot of reports of apparent unrest in the camp, with the likes of Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial featuring heavily in this, while an apparent failure to sign key players has seen Mourinho’s relationship with the board strained further. 888sport make Mourinho the 5/4 favourite, ahead of Wolves’ Nuno Espirito Santo at 4/1, and Newcastle’s Rafa Benitez at 6/1.  The online bookmaker have also installed former RB Leipzig manager Ralph Hasenhuttl as the 1/2 favourite to take over from Hughes as Southampton manager, with the Austrian seemingly nailed on to be named the new Saints boss. “Mark Hughes and Jose Mourinho were in opposite dugouts on Saturday, but after the Welshman was fired this morning, the same fate may soon fall on Mourinho,” an 888sport spokesman told Bettingpro.  “We now make Mourinho the new favourite to be the next manager to lose his job – and with a tricky match against Arsenal on Wednesday, it could be days rather than weeks until that happens.”

Hannes Wolf zawrócił na siebie uwagę klubów z Premier League. O utalentowanego ofensywnego pomocnika Red Bull Salzburg mają powalczyć Arsenal Londyn, Southampton FC oraz Tottenham Hotspur - donosi "The Mirror".

Austriak jest uznawany za jeden z największych talentów w europejskim futbolu. 19-latek jest porównywany do Christiana Eriksena, gracza "Kogutów".

Według brytyjskiego dziennika, wkrótce walkę stoczyć mają o niego właśnie "Kanonierzy", Spurs oraz "Święci".

Wolf w obecnym sezonie wystąpił w 21 meczach RB Salzburg we wszystkich rozgrywkach. Strzelił w nich cztery gole i zanotował dziewięć asyst. Jego kontrakt z klubem obowiązuje do końca czerwca 2020 roku.

          Apple's recent woes are bleeding into its global supply chain as stock selling accelerates      Cache   Translate Page      

Tim Cook

  • Apple and its suppliers were among the hardest hit during Tuesday's broad plunge in both US and Asian markets. Some suppliers have slashed their targets, citing weaker conditions. 
  • The selling continued across Apple's overseas supply chain on Wednesday.
  • The iPhone maker closed down 4.4% Tuesday, hurt in part by an HSBC downgrade that cited "market saturation."

Apple's stock woes are bleeding into its global supply chain.

Shares of iPhone suppliers tumbled on Wednesday after Apple's stock tumbled 4.4% on Tuesday — outpacing a particularly brutal 3.8% drop in the Nasdaq. Apple stock was hurt in part Tuesday by a downgrade by HSBC, which cited an overwhelming dependence on a single product, the iPhone.

"What has made the success of Apple, a concentrated portfolio of highly desirable (and pricey) products, is now facing the reality of market saturation," HSBC said. 

Here's a round-up of the damage in Apple's suppliers in Asia: 

  • Pegatron, in Taiwan, fell 1.7%
  • The Chinese acoustics technology supplier AAC Technologies lost 3.7%
  • Taiwan's Flexium Interconnect was down 3.9%
  • Taiwan's Largan Precision declined 3.7%

In the US, Lumentum Holdings, an optical products manufacturer, fell 5.5% in regular trading on Tuesday after it cut its outlook last month.

Cirrus Logic closed down 1.9% down — having fallen as much as 5.8% days after it cut its December revenue outlook because of recent weakness in the smartphone market. Apple accounts for about 82% of Cirrus' sales.

Similarly, Qorvo, a North Carolina semiconductor company, dropped 5.3% on Tuesday amid concerns about Apple, which recently lost its status as the world's most valuable business.

Another Apple supplier, Broadcom, which reports earnings on Thursday, fell 4.1%. The company, which designs semiconductors, is believed to make about $10 on each iPhone sold, according to JPMorgan, cited by CNBC. 

Other manufacturers, such as Austria's AMS, which develops facial-recognition software, cut its revenue forecast last month as iPhone sales diminished.

          Najfajniejszy mecz towarzyski ever. Europa vs. Reszta Świata AD 1997      Cache   Translate Page      

Mignęło mi to wczoraj w internetach i aż się rozrzewniłem. 4 grudnia 1997 roku odbył się mecz Europa kontra Reszta Świata. Ach....

maxresdefault1

Spotkanie odbyło się przy okazji losowania grup Mistrzostw Świata 1998 we Francji. Tak, tych mistrzostw.

Przypomnijmy, że to był czas, gdy byłem jeszcze młodym chłopaczkiem, który chłonął wszystko, co z piłką związane.

Przypomnijmy, że był to czas, kiedy mecze w telewizji były jeszcze dozowane, może nie tak bardzo jak jeszcze kilka lat wcześniej, ale wciąż kibic na pewno nie był nimi przebodźcowany. Ja do dziś wspominam mecz Spartak Moskwa - Inter Mediolan (1:2) w Pucharze UEFA 1997/1998, który obejrzałem tylko dlatego, że akurat leciał w TV :)

Przypomnijmy wreszcie, że to był czas, kiedy po zielonych murawach gęsto biegali wizjonerzy, zwykle z numerem 10 na plecach - Zidane, Hagi, Romario, Ronaldo, Baggio, Okocha... Nawet Austria miała Herzoga :)

Sami widzicie, że był to piękny czas. I wszystkie te okoliczności zmaterializowały się w postaci meczu Europa versus Reszta Świata.

Oto składy obu drużyn:

Europa

1. Andreas Köpke (GER, Olympique de Marseille)
12. Frode Grodas (NOR, Chelsea)

2. Heimo Pfeifenberger (AUT, Werder Bremen)
3. Sorin Colding (DEN, Brondby FC)

5. Fernando Hierro (ESP, Real Madrid C.F.)
6. Dominique Lemoine (BEL, RCD Espanyol SAD)
7. Krassimir Balakov (BUL, VfB Stuttgart)
8. Paul Ince (ENG, Liverpool FC)
9. Patrick Kluivert (HOL, Milan AC)
10. Zinedine Zidane (FRA, Juventus FC), kapitan
11. Alen Boksic (HRV, Lazio SS)

13. Marius Lacatus (ROM, Steaua Bucarest)
14. Slavisa Jokanovic (YUG, CD Tenerife SAD)
15. Mehdi Pashazadeh (IRN, Tehran FC)
16. Gordon Durie (SCO, Glasgow Rangers)

Trener
Franz Beckenbauer (GER)

Reszta Świata

1. Jacques Songo'o (CMR, Deportivo La Coruña)
12. Rubén Martin Ruiz Díaz (PAR, Monterrey)

2. Myung-Bo Hong (KOR, Bellmare Hiratsuka)
3. Javier Margas (CHI, Universidad Católica)
4. Nwankwo Kanu (NGA, Inter)
5. Nourredine Naybet (MOR, Deportivo La Coruña)
6. Marcelino Bernal (MEX, Monterrey)
7. Hidetoshi Nakata (JAP, Bellmare Hiratsuka)
8. Adel Sellimi (TUN, Nantes)
9. Gabriel Batistuta (ARG, Fiorentina)
10. Ronaldo (BRA, Inter), kapitan
13. Hussain O. Sulimani (KSA)

11. Antony de Avila (COL, New York Metrostars)
14. David Nyathi (RSA, St. Gallen)
15. Deon Burton (JAM, Derby County)
16. Eric Wynalda (USA, San Jose Clash)

Trener
Carlos Alberto Parreira (BRA)

Mecz był tak bogaty w fajerwerki, że od oglądania mogły rozboleć brzuchy. Gwiazdy cisnęły swoje popisowe numery, ale pozostali nie odpuszczali. No, może poza defensorami, co takim gierkom chyba dodaje tylko uroku.

Wynik: 5:2 dla Reszty Świata. Strzelcy: De Avila, Ronaldo 2, Batistuta 2 - Lacatus, Zidane

Poniżej skrót spotkania. Zobaczcie sobie co wyprawiał Ronaldo.

Jeśli ktoś chciałby sobie obejrzeć cały mecz to nagranie znajdzie tutaj.

Przy okazji - listę z innymi meczami reprezentacji "Europy" albo "Świata" znajdziecie tutaj i trochę też tutaj.

A ciekawe dywagacje jak mógłby taki mecz wyglądać w 2017 albo 2018 roku znajdziecie tutaj, tutaj i tutaj.

Flowering plants (angiosperms), with at atomic 300,000 species, are by far the best assorted accumulation of plants on our planet. They accommodate about all the breed acclimated by bodies for food, medicine, and abounding added purposes.

However, beginning plants arose alone about 140 actor years ago, absolutely backward in the change of plants, against the end of the age of the dinosaurs.

Since again they accept adapted spectacularly. However, no one knows absolutely how this happened.

The agent and aboriginal change of beginning plants — abnormally flowers still abide one of the better enigmas in biology.

“Previous attempts to reconstruct the affiliated annual application a avant-garde phylogenetic framework of angiosperms accept bigger our compassionate of affiliated floral traits, such as the affiliated anatomy of the carpel,” the scientists said.

“However, several capital aspects of the affiliated annual accept so far remained unresolved, due to decidedly abashing aberration in floral anatomy amid the ancient deviating lineages of angiosperms. For instance, it was still alien whether the affiliated annual was unisexual or bisexual.”

According to the eFLOWER team, the affiliated annual was bisexual, with both changeable (carpels) and macho (stamens) parts, and with assorted whorls (concentric cycles) of petal-like organs, in sets of threes.

About 20% of actual flowers accept such ‘trimerous’ whorls, but about fewer: lilies accept two, magnolias accept three.

“When we assuredly got the abounding results, I was absolutely abashed until I accomplished that they absolutely fabricated acceptable sense. No one has absolutely been cerebration about the aboriginal change of flowers in this way, yet so abundant is calmly explained by the new book that emerges from our models,” said co-lead columnist Dr. Hervé Sauquet, from the Université Paris-Sud in France.

          G20: You can smell tear gas in the streets as the oil industry squabbles      Cache   Translate Page      
What the G20 and OPEC meetings mean for the political relations, economies, and people of the world.

Last week, two important meetings took place—one, in Buenos Aires, Argentina, of the Group of 20 (G20) nations, and two, in Vienna, Austria, of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and other oil producers. The two meetings did not produce any resolution to the major economic challenges in the world. But they did soothe the nerves of financial markets. At the G20, the United States and China dialed down the temperature over trade but did not settle the long-term grievances each side has of the other. At the OPEC+ meeting, Russia and Saudi Arabia agreed to cut production and raise the price of oil despite pressure from the United States and others to keep oil prices low.

At neither meeting did the major powers find solutions to their problems. They are all caught in mazes from which there are no easy exits. But what calmed the world of finance was that the geopolitical tension between the major powers seemed to have lessened. What impact this reduced tension has for the world’s people, however, is not clear.

Trade

The “trade war” engineered by U.S. President Donald Trump against China began with tariffs and ended with a damp squib. At the G20, Trump told China’s Xi Jinping that the U.S. tariffs that would have gone up to 25 percent on $200 billion worth of Chinese imports will no longer be applied. China, for its part, said that it would import more goods from the United States. No specifics were announced, which is why the tensions over even this agreement spilled over onto Twitter (courtesy of Trump’s hyperbole) and into more sober statements from the Chinese government.

The more fundamental questions of intellectual property and currency valuation remain unsolved. The United States accuses China of theft of the intellectual property of U.S. firms, but the Chinese counter—as they have in the arbitration panels of the World Trade Organization—that they merely draw from technology transferred as a result of commercial agreements freely made by firms eager to use Chinese labor. It will be impossible to resolve these two problems, since neither side sees the issues in the same way. Their worldviews regarding intellectual property and currency valuation are utterly alien to each other. If the United States believes that China is unfairly valuing its currency, the Chinese point to the unfair advantage that the dollar has over every currency in the world since it is used as one of the major global currencies for facilitation of trade and for the storage of wealth.

Oil

Russia’s Vladimir Putin and Saudi Arabia’s Mohammed bin Salman offered each other a friendly hand slap at the G20. Everyone seemed happy to see Mohammed bin Salman, despite the clear evidence of his role in the murder of the Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

But the real agreements between Russia and Saudi Arabia were not directly made in Buenos Aires. They were made more quietly in Vienna at the OPEC+ meeting. At Buenos Aires, Putin said, “yes, we have an agreement to prolong our accords.” He was referring to the deal between Russia and Saudi Arabia since 2016 to manage oil prices to their mutual benefit. The deal notwithstanding, Saudi Arabia has continued to pump itself into trouble—flooding the market with oil, driving prices down and depleting its own treasury as a result. Now Russia is eager to see oil production cuts and oil prices rise. Trapped by sanctions and by low oil prices, Russia has plunged into internal economic difficulties. The real issue was how much each country inside and outside OPEC should pump. That is why Putin said, “there is no final deal on volumes.” In fact, even after the deal has begun to emerge, there is no final deal. Saudi Arabia has not been a good partner here. It has pumped outside the numbers over the course of the past few years, largely under pressure from the United States.

There are two reasons why the United States wants low oil prices, despite the fact that the U.S. is now one of the world’s largest oil producers. First, low oil prices mean an immediate subsidy for the U.S. consumer and for U.S. manufacturing firms. There is no economic incentive to move to renewable energy when oil prices are low. Second, low oil prices hit adversaries of the U.S.-led world order that—as it happens—are major oil producers. The list includes Iran and Venezuela, two countries that have been sent into internal turmoil as oil prices have plummeted. But the United States has sufficient tools to hurt these countries without forcing oil prices down. For instance, even if oil prices rise, U.S. sanctions can be harsh enough to cut Iranian and Venezuelan oil out of the market. The lack of Iranian and Venezuelan oil operates as an effective cut in oil production, which will itself raise oil prices.

Saudi Arabia has already begun to pressure Libya and Nigeria to reduce oil exports, although both these African countries are reliant upon oil revenues. Saudi Arabia has succeeded in pushing Qatar out of OPEC on political grounds, but since Qatar only produces 2 percent of OPEC’s crude oil the departure, Qatexit is not meaningful. Inside the world of oil, there are those who are always pushed aside so that others can benefit.

Oil Buyers’ Club

In 2005, Indian Petroleum Minister Mani Shankar Aiyar assembled his counterparts from across Asia to start a discussion on a buyers’ club. The precise issue on the table was the “Asian Premium” charged by Saudi Arabia and other oil producers to Asian countries. The “Asian Premium” is substantial—close to $10 billion per year for the Asian consumers of Gulf oil. It is what bothered Aiyar and the other oil ministers. But they did not come to any agreement.

Asia is the largest importer of oil in the world. India and China, with the United States, are the three largest importers of oil. Right behind them are Japan and South Korea. If you add the oil imports by China, India, Japan and South Korea, then these four Asian countries import a full third of world oil imports. They are both reliant upon the oil exporters, but they also have power as a bloc of consumers.

In 2012, China’s premier Wen Jiabao said that there needed to be a counter-cartel to OPEC that should include Europe and the United States. Interest in his proposal was minimal. Oil had reached $100 per barrel. It stifled economic growth and did not move any of these industrial giants toward non-carbon renewable fuel.

The issue of a buyers’ cartel came back on the table in April this year at the International Energy Forum. The chairman of Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) Sanjiv Singh and the chairman of China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC) Wang Yilin then met in Beijing to go deeper into the possibility. By June, China and India—which import 17 percent of the world’s oil—had begun to openly talk about a buyers’ cartel to help create “stable and moderate” oil prices, as India’s current Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan put it.

China and India have been upset by the U.S. sanctions on Iran. They have felt that these produce an adverse impact on Asian economies. They are joined by Japan and the European Union, who are also not pleased with these sanctions. It is now being said that if China and India establish a buyers’ club, Japan and Europe will join in.

Smell of Tear Gas

From the air-conditioned rooms of the oligarchy, we go to the tear gas of the streets.

Protests in Paris, France, have been the most violent in decades. The yellow vests (gilets jaunes) appeared as if out of nowhere to demonstrate against the French government’s hike in fuel prices. They make the case that the violence of the economy has destroyed their ability to function. Any violence on the streets is a reflection of the violence that structures their lives. The streets of Paris smelled of tear gas.

In Buenos Aires, Argentina, labor unions and political groups of one kind or another planned massive protests against the G20. They wanted to scream at their leaders, who have been deaf to their pleas. But the Argentinian government held the G20 meeting at the Costa Salguero convention center, on the magnificent Rio de La Plata. Police cordoned off the area, while the coast guard boats sailed up and down the river. No one could get near the site. None of the leaders were interrupted by the chants.

There were no protests in Vienna. The OPEC building was nonetheless surrounded by the elite WEGA units. No one knew that the meeting was being held. There is so little democracy in the institutions that structure our lives.

Hey folks,

I am sad to say that I just have no time left to help out ATM.
But I am willing to spend some money, maybe also on a regular base, but keeping in mind my ~limited~ possibilities. (Sadly I still do not earn millions :wink:#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000 )

  2. invoiceplane is developed further.

Get back to me, we could maybe discuss in a more private space on a plan on how the further development could be assured, maybe with some “membership” … accessible also to others who are willing to give back to FOSS developers …

          DOCUMENTAR: Moş Nicolae - obiceiuri şi tradiţii      Cache   Translate Page      
Seara de 5 decembrie este pentru toţi copiii prilej de emoţie. Cu grijă îşi curăţă cizmele sau ghetele şi le aşează aproape de uşă sau de fereastră, în aşteptarea lui Moş Nicolae. Conform tradiţiei, celor cuminţi, moşul le aduce dulciuri, iar celor neascultători, o nuieluşă. Tradiţia sosirii lui Moş Nicolae îşi are originea în povestea unui personaj care a existat cu adevărat - episcopul Nicolae de Myra, care a trăit în Myra-Lichia, în secolul al IV-lea. Lui Nicolae de Myra îi sunt atribuite numeroase fapte bune faţă de cei săraci şi năpăstuiţi, dar şi miracole, numele său traducându-se prin "biruitor de popor". Provenind dintr-o familie înstărită, la moartea părinţilor săi, şi-a dăruit întreaga avuţie celor nevoiaşi. Una dintre cele mai cunoscute legende despre Moş Nicolae este povestea celor trei fete sărace, care neavând zestre, nu se puteau căsători şi urmau să fie vândute de tatăl lor unor bărbaţi înstăriţi. Legenda spune că Sfântul Nicolae, aflându-le durerea, le-a aruncat fiecăreia pe geam, într-o noapte, câte un săculeţ de bani, care a căzut fie în ciorapii puşi la uscat, fie în ghete. De aici provine obiceiul ca darurile de Moş Nicolae să fie puse în ghete, conform volumului "Cartea de Crăciun" de Sorin Lavric, Editura Humanitas, 1997. De asemenea, există obiceiul să se pună în apă crenguţe de pomi fructiferi în casă, lângă icoane, care să înflorească de Anul Nou. În funcţie de crenguţa care a înflorit, se aşteaptă recolta de fructe în noul an. La sate există obiceiul ca în ziua de Sfântul Nicolae feciorii să se organizeze în cete şi să-şi aleagă gazda unde vor merge pentru repetiţiile colindelor de Crăciun şi de Anul Nou. Legenda lui Moş Nicolae s-a răspândit în toată lumea şi a luat caracteristicile fiecărei ţări. În Europa, în secolul al XII-lea, ziua Sfântului Nicolae a devenit ziua darurilor şi a activităţilor caritabile. În Germania, imaginea lui Moş Nicolae este a unui bătrân ce poartă un sac în spate şi o nuieluşă în mână. Dacă n-au fost cuminţi, copiii primesc nuieluşe, cartofi sau cărbuni. În unele regiuni din Germania, copiii se costumează în Moş Nicolae şi colindă casele vecine, pentru a primi dulciuri. Copiii din Franţa lasă pentru Moş Nicolae un pahar cu vin, iar pentru măgăruşul lui, morcovi şi zahăr. În noaptea de 5 spre 6 decembrie, ei primesc ciocolată, turtă dulce, fructe şi trimit scrisori rudelor pentru a le ura sărbători fericite. În regiunile din estul Franţei, copiii ştiu că Moş Nicolae vine călare pe un măgăruş, alături de Pere Fouettard (Moş Nuieluşă), înveşmântat în negru. Moş Nicolae lasă daruri copiilor buni, iar Pere Fouettard este cel care-i ceartă pe copiii care n-au fost cuminţi, dându-le o nuieluşă. La copiii olandezi, moşul ajunge pe mare, venind din Spania. Dacă n-au fost cuminţi, se tem de însoţitorul moşului, Zwarte Piet (Petru cel Negru). El îl ajută pe Moş Nicolae cu darurile şi dulciurile pentru copiii cuminţi, precizează volumul amintit. În Belgia şi Luxemburg, copiii îşi aşează ghetuţele în faţa uşii şi, la fel ca micuţii francezi, pregătesc un pahar de vin pentru moş, morcovi şi zahăr pentru calul lui. Odată cu Moş Nicolae, la fel ca şi în alte ţări europene, copiii îl aşteaptă şi pe însoţitorul său, Hoseker.   Foto: (c) VLAD STAVRICĂ / AGERPRES FOTO Moş Nicolae este foarte iubit de copiii din Austria, care-l ştiu ca pe un bătrân înveşmântat asemenea unui episcop, cu o carte mare în care îngerii au scris toate faptele celor mici şi care călătoreşte alături de Krampus, care ţine în mână o nuia destinată micuţilor care nu au dat ascultare părinţilor. Copiii din Italia aşează pe o farfurie, în seara de 5 decembrie, scrisorile în care-şi notează dorinţele, promiţându-i lui Moş Nicolae că vor fi cuminţi în anul care va veni. A doua zi, în locul scrisorilor, găsesc dulciurile lor preferate. Tot în Italia, există tradiţia numită Rito delle nubili (ritualul celor necăsătoriţi). În Croaţia, Moş Nicolae (Sveti Nikola) aduce cadouri pe 6 decembrie, cu ocazia zilei sale consacrate. În seara dinainte, copiii îşi lustruiesc încălţămintea şi o aşează pe pervazurile ferestrelor, pentru ca moşul să le umple cu daruri, dulciuri şi fructe. În Polonia, Moş Nicolae este o personalitate extrem de divinizată şi respectată. Îmbrăcat în haine episcopale şi purtând bastonul episcopal, se crede că el coboară din ceruri cu ajutorul unui înger şi colindă întreaga ţară pe jos sau purtat într-o trăsură trasă de un cal alb. Moş Nicolae intră în case şi ascultă rugăminţile copiilor. El îi ceartă sau îi laudă şi le dăruieşte apoi icoane, mere roşii, portocale şi "pierniki" (prăjiturele sfinte, făcute cu miere şi mirodenii). Uneori, el lasă darurile sub pernele copiilor care dorm sau le pune în ghete.   Foto: (c) ISABELA PĂULESCU / AGERPRES FOTO În unele oraşe şi sate din Slovacia, Moş Nicolae, sau Svaty Mikulas, soseşte într-o trăsură trasă de un cal. Copiii nerăbdători să îl vadă se adună pe străzi şi se unesc în coruri şi dansuri. În unele regiuni, moşul vizitează copiii acasă. În ajun, copiii îşi aşează încălţările lustruite pe pervazul ferestrei sau în pragul uşii, sperând să le găsească dimineaţa încărcate cu daruri. În unele şcoli are loc sărbătoarea "Mikul Mail", în cadrul căreia copiii îşi dăruiesc unul altuia mici cadouri. În Slovenia, în seara de 5 decembrie, copiii îşi aşează încălţămintea afară, în faţa uşii, aşteptând să o găsească a doua zi încărcată de fructe, bomboane, monede şi mici jucării. Cel care îl însoţeşte pe Moş Nicolae, numit Parkel, pune în încălţările copiilor obraznici cărbuni şi cenuşă.   Foto: (c) ISABELA PĂULESCU / AGERPRES FOTO Înaintea zilei de Sfântul Nicolae (Szent Mikulás), copiii din Ungaria îşi lustruiesc pantofii cei mai buni şi îi aşează pe pervaz pentru a fi umpluţi de darnicul moş. Dimineaţa, ei găsesc în pantofi bomboane, portocale, nuci, mere, ciocolată şi mici cadouri. Copiii obraznici primesc nuiele aurii şi linguri de lemn.

          Unión Europea sobre pacto migratorio: “no están las condiciones para que Dominicana pueda participar”      Cache   Translate Page      
El representante de la Delegación de la Unión Europea en el país, Gianluca Grippa, dijo este miércoles que respeta la decisión de la República Dominicana de no firmar el Pacto Mundial para la Migración Segura, Ordenada y Regular, propuesto por la Organización de las Naciones Unidas (ONU).

Sostuvo que República Dominicana es soberana y “no está en condiciones” para firmarlo.

“Esto del pacto es un marco global que ha sido estudiando en los últimos 18 meses donde República Dominicana ha tenido un papel importante y dinámico y entiendo que no están las condiciones para que dominicana pueda participar, esperamos que en el futuro se pueda”, precisó el embajador.

Agregó que hay algunos estados miembros de la Unión Europea que no van a participar tampoco porque no están de acuerdo con el texto, “por lo tanto, es una decisión soberana que nosotros respetamos. No firmarán Bulgaria, Hungría, República Checa, Italia, Eslovaquia y Austria”

Ayer, la decisión del Estado dominicano fue dada a conocer al país por el Consultor Jurídico del Poder Ejecutivo, Flavio Darío Espinal, quien explica que sumarse al pacto “generaría compromisos al Estado dominicano que podrían socavar su capacidad para hacer valer sus normas migratorias e implementar con eficacia las políticas migratorias que el cumplimiento de esas normas exige”.

También dio su opinión el embajador Antonio Vargas Hernández, director general de cooperación multilateral y ordenador nacional de los fondos europeos. “Para nosotros no solo como funcionario del Gobierno sino con un hombre comprometido con el desarrollo sustentable de la República Dominicana, lo que sucedió ayer fue icónico. En términos particular, en la República Dominicana el presidente hizo lo que tenía que hacer, representar dignamente a todos los dominicanos que sufragamos para que él fuera el representante de nosotros desde la conducción del Estado”.

Los ejecutivos ofrecieron sus declaraciones tras firmar un acuerdo con el Centro de Exportación e Inversión de la República Dominicana (CEI-RD).

          Danilo rechaza el pacto migratorio por contrariar interés nacional      Cache   Translate Page      
Santo Domingo -. República Dominicana se convirtió ayer en el décimo país del mundo y el primero de Latinoamérica en abstenerse de firmar el Pacto Mundial para la Migración Segura, Ordenada y Regular, propuesto por la Organización de las Naciones Unidas (ONU).

En rueda de prensa en el Salón Orlando Martínez del Palacio Nacional, el consultor jurídico del Poder Ejecutivo, Flavio Darío Espinal, sostuvo que el pacto tiene disposiciones que resultan contrarias al interés nacional, y por tal razón el presidente Danilo Medina tomó la decisión de rechazar la firma de ese acuerdo.

“Aunque el pacto no tiene carácter vinculante por no tratarse de un tratado internacional estrictamente hablando, su adopción generaría compromisos al Estado dominicano que podrían socavar su capacidad para hacer valer sus normas migratorias e implementar con eficacia las políticas migratorias que el cumplimiento de esas normas exige”, manifestó Espinal.

El funcionario explicó que la firma del pacto crearía compromisos internacionales que podrían limitar al país a dar respuestas o soluciones a los problemas que ocurren en la frontera. Además, la unión al acuerdo tendría como consecuencia innumerables cargas que podrían “desbordar con creces los recursos del país”.

Los demás países que han decidido no firmar el pacto son Estados Unidos, Hungría, Austria, Australia, Bulgaria, Israel, Polonia, la República Checa e Italia. Este último prefirió enviar la decisión al Parlamento antes de brindar una posición formal.

La semana anterior, el mandatario había formado una Comisión Interistitucional a fin de que rinda un informe sobre el pacto, y así el jefe de Estado pudiera decidir sobre si firmar o no.

Esa comisión estuvo encabezada por el ministro de la Presidencia, Gustavo Montalvo, los ministros de Relaciones Exteriores, Miguel Vargas, y de Interior y Policía, José Ramón Fadul; el consultor jurídico, Flavio Darío Espinal, y el director de Información, Análisis y Programación Estratégica (DIAPE), Ramón Tejada Holguín.

A continuación el texto íntegro de las declaraciones del consultor jurídico:
Por instrucciones del señor presidente de la República Lic. Danilo Medina Sánchez, hago pública la posición del Gobierno dominicano sobre el Pacto Mundial para la Migración Segura, Ordenada y Regular, el cual será conocido en la Conferencia Intergubernamental auspiciada por la Organización de las Naciones Unidas (ONU) a celebrarse los días 10 y 11 de diciembre en Marrakech, Marruecos.

La iniciativa de trabajar un pacto migratorio está contenida en la Declaración de Nueva York para los Refugiados y los Migrantes adoptada el 19 de septiembre de 2016 por los estados miembros de la ONU en la Asamblea General de ese año como respuesta a los grandes desplazamientos de migrantes y refugiados que se estaban produciendo en diferentes partes del mundo, especialmente desde países de África y del Medio Oriente hacia los países europeos. La idea que motivó esa iniciativa fue el interés de buscar una cooperación internacional amplia entre los estados miembros para enfrentar un grave problema que impacta, y sigue impactando, a múltiples países sin que ninguno pudiese, de manera aislada, dar respuestas eficaces a este complejo fenómeno.

La declaración de Nueva York definió un plan de acción con miras a crear los procesos de consulta y negociación entre los estados miembros para arribar a la adopción del Pacto Mundial para la Migración Segura, Ordenada y Regular.

Se trata, pues, de una iniciativa que surgió del seno de la ONU con un apoyo inicial por parte de sus estados miembros. Su intención es loable: procurar mecanismos de cooperación para proteger la dignidad humana y los derechos de las personas migrantes, así como para combatir males sociales como el racismo, la xenofobia y la discriminación.

Como país que no solo es receptor, sino también emisor de migrantes, podemos valorar en su justa dimensión la motivación de esta iniciativa. Nosotros queremos que cada dominicano o dominicana que emigra en búsqueda de nuevas oportunidades pueda vivir sin estar expuesto al abuso, al maltrato y la discriminación.

De igual manera, el Gobierno dominicano está comprometido con una política de respeto a los derechos humanos en relación a las personas que emigran hacia nuestro país, aunque sin renunciar a su potestad soberana de hacer valer sus normas migratorias y de proteger sus fronteras.

Esto explica el Plan Nacional de Regularización Migratoria que ha sido ejemplo en nuestra región por la manera ordenada y rigurosa como se ha llevado a cabo, el cual ha permitido que algo más de doscientos mil migrantes hayan regularizado su condición en el territorio dominicano acogiéndose a las diferentes categorías migratorias que contemplan las normas legales sobre la materia. Igualmente, el Gobierno dominicano ha fortalecido su capacidad institucional para realizar las repatriaciones de indocumentados con debido respeto a los derechos humanos de las personas, al tiempo que ha invertido y sigue invirtiendo cuantiosos recursos económicos para mejorar los mecanismos de control y vigilancia de nuestras fronteras.

No obstante, al momento de adoptar una decisión de esta naturaleza y envergadura, el presidente Danilo Medina toma en cuenta, por encima de cualquier otra consideración, el interés nacional a la luz de las condiciones particulares de nuestro país. Su primera y más importante prioridad es la seguridad y el bienestar de los dominicanos, así como la defensa de la Constitución y las leyes.

Es sabido nacional e internacionalmente que nuestro país tiene presiones y desafíos en materia migratoria que transcienden una coyuntura circunstancial; son más bien la expresión de una realidad estructural resultante de la condición prácticamente única en el mundo de una isla con dos países que tienen desbalances enormes en materia económica, social, medioambiental y de seguridad, lo cual requiere de políticas y medidas que se correspondan con la naturaleza del problema que enfrentamos.

Si bien el pacto propuesto tiene innumerables disposiciones que son bien vistas por el Gobierno dominicano, así como por la gran mayoría de los gobiernos alrededor del mundo, también tienen disposiciones que resultan contrarias al interés nacional. Aunque el pacto no tiene carácter vinculante por no tratarse de un tratado internacional estrictamente hablando, su adopción generaría compromisos al Estado dominicano que podrían socavar su capacidad para hacer valer sus normas migratorias e implementar con eficacia las políticas migratorias que el cumplimiento de esas normas exige. Igualmente, pondría cargas al Estado dominicano que, dado el contexto particular de nuestra isla, podrían desbordar con creces nuestros recursos. Asimismo, el pacto crearía compromisos internacionales que le impedirían al Estado dominicano, o lo limitarían enormemente, para dar respuesta a situaciones que puedan presentarse en nuestra frontera terrestre como resultado de las condiciones estructurales y los procesos prolíticos y sociales que se viven en el país vecino.

El Gobierno dominicano tiene que responder también al sentir nacional. La adopción de un pacto de esta naturaleza, por lo que envuelve y por las implicaciones que tiene, requiere de un consenso básico en la sociedad dominicana que no parece existir en las actuales circunstancias.

Por estas razones, el presidente Medina ha impartido las instrucciones para que el Gobierno dominicano no firme ni adopte el Pacto Mundial para la Migración Segura, Ordenada y Regular. Asimismo, el presidente Medina ha dispuesto que el Gobierno dominicano no esté presente en la Conferencia Intergubernamental que se celebrará la próxima semana en Marrakech, Marruecos, con el fin de aprobar y adoptar el referido pacto.

El Gobierno dominicano comunicará al Secretario General de las Naciones Unidas, por los canales diplomáticos correspondientes, las razones por las cuales el Estado dominicano no firmará este pacto atendiendo a las condiciones particulares de la República Dominicana.

Muchas gracias.

In blow to political correctness, Italy wants crucifixes and nativity scenes in all classrooms

ITALY, December 3, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – Amid what Italian media is describing as “open war” on school nativity scenes, Italy’s Education Ministry has slapped back, granting approval to installing crucifixes and reinstating nativity scenes in the nation’s classrooms.
“The crucifix is for me the symbol of our history, our culture, our traditions,” said Education Minister Marco Bussetti, speaking to the Federation of Catholic Schools’ annual congress in Rome. “I don't see how it can cause any irritation in our school rooms, on the contrary it may help kids to reflect on our history.”  
Bussetti is not alone.
When a school in the city of Terni, northeast of Rome, cancelled its traditional nativity play in order to respect children from other cultures, Italy’s Interior Minister Matteo Salvini slammed the measure as “IDIOCY,” according to a Voice of Europe report.  
"It is not just about religion,” said Salvini on Facebook, “but about history, roots, culture. I will not give up.”  
“Long live our traditions, and may they spread!” he added.
A representative of the populist Lega Party, Valeria Alessandrini, first brought the situation at the school in Terni to the attention of Italians, saying:
Only by respecting (our own traditions) … can we make others understand everyone is free to practice their own faiths but that it is also required they respect the history and culture of the country in which they live.
I hope that children and young people at the school will be allowed to share with their peers and their parents the most beautiful, intense and meaningful moments of Christmas.
For years, forces have been at work demanding the removal of all expressions of Christianity from Italian schools in order to respect other cultures. In 2009, the European Court of Human Rights ruled against the presence of crucifixes in Italian classrooms.

Laura Theresa Alma-Tadema (English artist, 1852-1909) A Carol

Christmas songs - the oldest ones are the best
BBC History Magazine - Monday 9th December 2013

"Christmas carols were mostly a Victorian tradition along with trees, crackers and cards. Eugene Byrne explains the why the popularity of Silent Night has never faded, why there’s always a place for Hark! The Herald Angels Sing, and why the British fondness of Good King Wenceslas has not yet subsided.
In England - Carolers-Yorshire

"Although Christmas was celebrated in song in the Middle Ages, most carols in use now are less than 200 years old. Only a handful, such as I Saw Three Ships or the decidedly pagan-sounding The Holly and the Ivy, remind us of more ancient yuletides. Carols fell from favour in England after the Reformation because of their frivolity and were rarely sung in churches until the 1880s when EW  Benson, Bishop of Truro (later Archbishop of Canterbury) drew up the format for the Nine Lessons and Carols service, which has remained in use ever since.
 In England - Carol singing at Hampton Court Palace from The Graphic, London

"Silent Night (1818)

"Words: Josef Mohr - Music: Franz Xaver Gruber

"Arguably the world’s most popular Christmas carol comes in several different translations from the German original. It started out as a poem by the Austrian Catholic priest Father Josef Mohr in 1816. Two years later, Mohr was curate at the parish church of St Nicola in Oberndorf when he asked the organist and local schoolteacher Franz Xaver Gruber to put music to his words.

"An unreliable legend has it that the church organ had been damaged by mice, but whatever the reason, Gruber wrote it to be performed by two voices and guitar. It was first performed at midnight mass on Christmas Eve 1818, with Mohr and Gruber themselves taking the solo voice roles.

"Its fame eventually spread (allegedly it has been translated into over 300 languages and dialects) and it famously played a key role in the unofficial truce in the trenches in 1914 because it was one of the only carols that both British and German soldiers knew.
In England - Children in Yorkshire, carrying greenery as symbols of rebirth, go from house to house singing carols in the tradition of wassail for food, drink and sometimes small coins.

"Good King Wenceslas (1853 or earlier)

"Words: John Mason Neale - Music: Traditional, Scandinavian

"The Reverend Doctor Neale was a high Anglican whose career was blighted by suspicion that he was a crypto-Catholic, so as warden of Sackville College – an almshouse in East Grinstead – he had plenty of time for study and composition. Most authorities deride his words as “horrible”, “doggerel” or “meaningless”, but it has withstood the test of time. The tune came from a Scandinavian song that Neale found in a rare medieval book that had been sent to him by a friend who was British ambassador in Stockholm.

"There really was a Wenceslas – Vaclav in Czech – although he was Duke of Bohemia, rather than a king. Wenceslas (907–935) was a pious Christian who was murdered by his pagan brother Boleslav; after his death a huge number of myths and stories gathered around him. Neale borrowed one legend to deliver a classically Victorian message about the importance of being both merry and charitable at Christmas. Neale also wrote two other Christmas favourites: O Come, O Come Emmanuel (1851) and Good Christian Men, Rejoice (1853).
In England - Country Carol Singers Thomas Kibble Hervey's (1799-1859) Christmas Book with illustrations by Robert Seymour (1798-1836)  1836

"Hark! The Herald Angels Sing (1739 or earlier)

"Words: Charles Wesley - Music: Felix Mendelssohn
"Charles, the brother of Methodist founder John Wesley, penned as many as 9,000 hymns and poems, of which this is one of his best-known. It was said to be inspired by the sounds of the bells as he walked to church one Christmas morning and has been through several changes. It was originally entitled Hark How All the Welkin Rings – welkin being an old word meaning sky or heaven.

"As with most of his hymns, Wesley did not stipulate which tune it should be sung to, except to say that it should be “solemn”. The modern version came about when organist William Hayman Cummings adopted it to a tune by German composer Felix Mendelssohn in the 1850s. Mendelssohn had stipulated that the music, which he had written to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the invention of the printing press and which he described as “soldier-like and buxom”, should never be used for religious purposes.
In England - Mummers Thomas Kibble Hervey's (1799-1859) Christmas Book with illustrations by Robert Seymour (1798-1836)  1836

"God rest you merry, Gentlemen" Origin unknown

"This is thought to have originated in London in the 16th or 17th centuries before running to several different versions with different tunes all over England. The most familiar melody dates back to at least the 1650s when it appeared in a book of dancing tunes. It was certainly one of the Victorians’ favourites.

"If you want to impress people with your knowledge (or pedantry), then point out to them that the comma is placed after the “merry” in the first line because the song is enjoining the gentlemen (possibly meaning the shepherds abiding in the fields) to be merry because of Christ’s birthday. It’s not telling “merry gentlemen” to rest!"

Former RB Leipzig boss Ralph Hasenhuttl has been been appointed Southampton manager on a two-and-a-half-year deal.

Austrian Hasenhuttl, 51, has been out of work since leaving Leipzig in May, ending a two-year spell at the club. “As soon as we met, Ralph’s enthusiasm for football was contagious,” said Southampton chairman Ralph Krueger. “His hunger to take on a new and challenging job in the Premier League was evident. In our discussions, he quickly aligned himself with the values and the vision of the club.” Hasenhuttl led Leipzig to a second-place finish in the Bundesliga in his first season in charge, after taking over following their promotion from the second tier. source:bbc

          Michael Flynn is Getting Off Easy       Cache   Translate Page      

As we await Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s court filing on Michael Flynn, you may enjoy the opportunity to refresh your memory about him and his possible significance to the Russia investigation. I wrote about Flynn incessantly from the moment on November 18, 2016 that he was announced as the incoming National Security Advisor until he became a cooperating witness on December 1, 2017 and went completely off the grid.

This is actually just a sampling of the pieces I did on Flynn, but they collectively cover all the really good stuff. There are his notorious “Flynn Facts” that were basically made up crap he told his staff while serving as head of the Defense Intelligence Agency. There is his seat at Putin’s head table during the 2015 RT network gala dinner. There’s his suspicious relationship with a Russian woman named Svetlana Lokhova at Cambridge University that aroused the interest of the counterintelligence community. There’s the Peter W. Smith suicide story. There’s the plot to kidnap Fethullah Gülen from his Pennsylvania home and secretly ship him to Turkey for execution. There’s the undisclosed lobbying and floated nuclear proposals in Saudi Arabia.  There are Trump Tower meetings with latter-day Austrian Nazis who have since made a formal alliance with Vladimir Putin. There is so much more.  Indeed, Michael Flynn was the worst staffing decision ever made.

Of course, Flynn has so far confessed only to making “false, fictitious and fraudulent statements” to the FBI. If he expects to get off “Scott Free” on all this other stuff, I hope he at least had a good story to tell Robert Mueller.

          ▶️ Gobierno dominicano no firmará el Pacto Migratorio      Cache   Translate Page      
Santo Domingo;- El Gobierno dominicano decidió que no firmará el  Pacto Mundial para la Migración Ordenada y Regular, el cual se firmaría los días 10 y 11 de diciembre en Marruecos, donde la Organización de Naciones Unidas realizará una asamblea general y la Conferencia Intergubernamental para esos asuntos.
Esta decisión es tomada por el presidente Danilo Medina, como jefe de la política exterior dominicana, luego de que una comisión interinstitucional formada por él rindiera un informe sobre el tema.

Respecto a dicho pacto, el primer país en plantear su negativa es Estados Unidos y a él se le han añadido Hungría, Austria, Australia, Bulgaria, Israel, Polonia, la República Checa e Italia. Este último dijo que no firmará hasta no tener una aprobación del Parlamento, porque cree que sería una decisión que afectará a sus ciudadanos.
La ONU había dicho que no obliga a ningún país a pertenecer, pero especificó que podría haber consecuencias como la perdida de la credibilidad internacional para los que dejen de formar parte del pacto.
El pacto creado ONU, detalla 23 puntos que tratan temas como la prevención de la trata de personas a causa de la migración, la gestión de fronteras más seguras, la eliminación de la discriminación y la promoción de las transferencias de remesas más rápidas, seguras y baratas.
De igual que la mejora de la protección consular, el empoderamiento de los migrantes para que sean incluidos como parte de la sociedad, solo utilizar la detención migratoria como medida de último recurso, el salvaguardar vidas y establecer esfuerzos internacionales coordinados sobre migrantes desaparecidos.

          Firma de Pacto Migratorio está en manos de Danilo      Cache   Translate Page      
Santo Domingo;- En las manos del presidente Danilo Medina se encuentra la decisión de firmar o no el Pacto para la Migración Segura, Ordenada y Regular de la Organización de las Naciones Unidas (ONU), y será hoy a las 4:00 de la tarde que su Gobierno fijará posición de manera oficial ante el país.
La Comisión Interistitucional formada ayer por el mandatario para rendir un informe sobre el tema había entregado todos los detalles del pacto, según informó el portavoz de la Presidencia, Roberto Rodríguez Marchena.
Un rechazo generalizado ha suscitado la propuesta migratoria de la ONU,  cuya firma está prevista para los días 10 y 11 de este mes durante una cumbre que se realizará en Marruecos.
La comisión que rindió el informe está integrada por el ministro de la Presidencia, Gustavo Montalvo, quien la encabeza; los ministros de Relaciones Exteriores, Miguel Vargas, y de Interior y Policía, José Ramón Fadul; el consultor jurídico, Flavio Darío Espinal; y el director de Información, Análisis y Programación Estratégica (DIAPE), Ramón Tejada Holguín.
El LISTÍN DIARIO, en sus editoriales “¿Para qué firmar el pacto?”, con fecha del 1 de diciembre y “El país necesita una explicación”, del 3 de este mes, ha rechazado de manera categórica la firma del Pacto para la Migración Segura, Ordenada y Regular de la ONU.
A la posición del Decano de la Prensa se han sumado los líderes del Partido Revolucionario Moderno (PRM), Reformista Social Cristiano (PRSC), Dominicanos por el Cambio (DxC) y Fuerza Nacional Progresista (FNP); así como el secretario general del Partido Revolucionario Dominicano (PRD), Tony Peña Guaba, aliado al gobierno, además del alcalde de Santiago, del Partido de la Liberación Dominicana (PLD), Abel Martínez, y la Fundación Justicia y Transparencia (FJT).
Luis Abinader, principal dirigente de la oposición, dijo que la comunidad internacional tiene que entender que República Dominicana no puede cargar con la situación de insostenibilidad que significa el ingreso al país de una gran cantidad de ciudadanos haitianos irregulares.
También la Junta Directiva del Instituto Duartiano decidió expresar su rotundo rechazo al contenido del pacto por considerar que atenta contra la soberanía dominicana y los supremos intereses de esta nación. 
El pacto detalla 23 puntos que tratan temas como la prevención de la trata de personas a causa de la migración, la gestión de las fronteras más seguras, la eliminación de la discriminación y la promoción de las transferencias de remesas más rápidas, seguras y baratas; al igual que la mejora consular, el empoderamiento de los migrantes para que sean incluidos como parte de la sociedad, entre otros puntos.
LLAMAMIENTO DE LA UE:
Ayer, el comisionado de migración de la Unión Europea pidió a los países que se oponen a un acuerdo de la ONU sobre migración recapacitar sobre su posición.
