          China Aside, Trump's Many Other Trade Wars      Cache   Translate Page      
China may be the main "belligerent" identified by the US, but it's hardly the only one.
Trump and the Chinese government not being particularly known for their communicative openness and transparency, there is some confusion as to whether the US-China trade war is about to de-escalate or otherwise after Trump-Xi talks at the recently concluded G-20 meeting in Argentina. What's going to happen with regard to these two countries? Beats me, pal. Lest you think that China is the only victim of Trump's anti-trade mentality, rest assured that the rest of the world has been subject to aggressive action from the US government at Trump's obvious behest. But before we get to that, let's review what kinds of actions countries have typically used to sanction others' "unfair" trade practices:
A tariff is a tax on a foreign product designed to protect domestic producers in an effort to boost local economies. But under international trade laws, the US can't just implement them willy-nilly, they need to provide a reason why the tariff is necessary and investigate it fully. Until recently, the vast majority of US tariffs were justified as countervailing and antidumping duties.
  • Countervailing duties level the playing field when a foreign industry has been unfairly subsidised
  • Antidumping duties level the playing field when a foreign industry has been flooding the US market with its products
Not all investigations lead to tariffs - at some point during the process, the US may decide they don't have grounds to be implemented. But many do.
While we keep hearing about China all the time, note that it's practically everyone else also being hit by Trump's trade angst:
Under President Trump, the Department of Commerce has begun 122 investigations into anti-dumping/countervailing duties. These tariffs have targeted all corners of the globe, reaching 31 countries in total and affecting some $12bn (£9.4bn) in imports. China has borne the brunt of US scrutiny, with about 40% of countervailing/antidumping investigations targeting Chinese products ranging from aluminium alloy to rubber bands to silk ribbons. Other countries have found themselves in Mr Trump's crosshairs as well.
Aside from China, the countries hit by US trade actions range far and wide:
A far-reaching investigation into citric acid touched three continents, with tariffs issued for Belgium, Colombia and Thailand. The chemical compound mimics the sour tang of lemons and is used in a large amount of common candies and drinks, from Sour Patch Kids to 7Up...

Another massive investigation into biodiesel from Argentina and Indonesia led to tariffs being issued on $1.5bn of imports. The fuel, which is made from plants, is used in diesel cars and lorries, as well as airplanes and trains. The market has huge growth potential in the US, which is a major grower of corn and soybeans, and the tariffs could ostensibly help grow the industry.
Whereas American companies had to tell the government to investigate foreigner's alleged violations of trade rules, the Department of Commerce under Trump is now attacking all and sundry others even without corporate complaints. What's more, he's using traditionally taboo reasons for imposing sanctions since they give him more leeway--"national security" concerns being foremost of these against such national security "threats" like Canada, Mexico, etc.
And in a significant change in protocol, officials are no longer waiting for companies to petition for help. Last November, the Department of Commerce self-initiated investigations in Chinese common alloy aluminium.

It was the first time the department acted on its own regarding antidumping or countervailing duties, without a complaint from industry, in decades, and a sign of a shift in the department's policy under the new administration.

"[President Trump] isn't willing to wait for companies to come forward. He wants to do it himself, he wants to have the government decide," says Chad Bown, a senior fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics.

"So he starts self-initiating cases but also... he says we're going to start using other laws where there are much more presidential discretion." But by far the biggest shift in US trade policy has been Trump's willingness to buck with tradition if it will let him get tariffs through faster.

Rather than go through lengthy antidumping/countervailing investigations - and risk his tariffs being overturned - Trump has introduced hundreds of billions of tariffs under little-used aspects of trade law.
The upshot here is that even if US-China trade relations improve somewhat, there are so many other countries being targeted that it's hardly a cessation of the trade wars Trump is busy engaging in against practically the entire world.  
          ‘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.


          Comment on Leica T, TL and TL2 dynamic range and sensor measurements test results published online by John-F      Cache   Translate Page      
The Leica TL2 beat them all. Including the Fuji X-T3 and the EOS M6. Incredible! Sadly, many people scoff at Leica prices and think that the premium price is basically related to the name brand and the aura that surrounds the Leica name. I hope these tests will serve to convince them (or maybe some of them) that Leica is a serious competitor in the high-end world of digital photography. IMHO, Leica digital photography is a better option because it combines many unique advantages: superior optical engineering and knowledge of mirrorless design, superior manufacturing techniques, extensive Quality Control at every step of the manufacturing process (for both lenses and cameras), meaning no statistical (hypergeometric) sampling tests - every lens is tested and re-tested. Minimalist intelligent user interface, and no encryption of any part of the digital files are also important. Add to this one of the most modern and up-to-date ASIC chip (Maestro II) based on the same Milbeault architecture designed by Fujitsu (and also used by Nikon for its Expeed ASIC chips), the inclusion of a modern FPGA chip, the Xilinx Artix-7, to complement the work of the Maestro. And finally, a willingness to work with many different players in the world of digital photography, digital signal processing, digital sensor design, advanced physics, and university engineering faculties. Faculties and companies in the US, Belgium, France, Japan, Germany, Israel and China. All this from a “little“ company with only 1600 employees! Yes, Leica products are more expensive. But if you think that what you are buying is just a pretty box with a big name on it, you are making a big mistake. Leica cameras and lenses are a unique experience.

          Hazard contract talks happening every week, says Chelsea boss Sarri      Cache   Translate Page      
Eden Hazard's representatives are speaking with Chelsea on a weekly basis over a possible new contract, according to head coach Maurizio Sarri. Hazard, 27, has been linked with a move to Real Madrid in 2019 and stated only last month that it would be a "dream" for him to play for the Santiago Bernabeu club.  The Belgium star has two years left on his contract, but his advisors have already begun talks over the prospect of an extension, Sarri has claimed. The Blues boss now hopes for a successful outcome in those dealings, provided that Hazard wants to stay at Stamford Bridge. "I know very well that there are discussions between the club and the manager of Eden every week I think, so if there is something new, the club will call me immediately," he said. "I want Eden here, but I want him here if he wants to stay here. You know very well that Eden is very important for us, like every special player. He's important for his club. "It's up to him, I think. I think the club is available to sign a new contract immediately, but it's up to him if he wants to renew or not." Five years ago today... How good was @HazardEden10 that day?  pic.twitter.com/Fq27BQFPMx — Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) December 4, 2018 Cesar Azpilicueta signed fresh terms this week, while N'Golo Kante extended his stay in November, and Chelsea are thought to be negotiating with Cesc Fabregas and David Luiz, whose deals expire next year. Sarri has publicly urged the club to keep hold of the experienced duo, although he accepts matters have been complicated by the fact Luiz and Fabregas want more than the 12-month increases Chelsea usually offer to players over 30. "The deal is very difficult for this reason, I think, because the club wants a short contract and the players want a long contract," he said. "But I think, at the end, we can find a solution. I spoke with the club one month ago about this and I think that we can do a new deal for both. "They are very important players for us. Because, on the other hand, it's very difficult to find a centre-back for this level, and it's very difficult to find a central midfielder technically like Fabregas. And so, I think they have to stay with us. "David Luiz and Cesc are leaders. And so, I think it's very important for me, for the staff, and also for their team-mates that they stay with us. I know the difficulties of the new deal, as I said before. "The problem is only the length of the new contract. But I think the club will be able to find the right solution."
          Luka Modric wins 2018 Ballon d'Or      Cache   Translate Page      

Luka Modric has won the 2018 Ballon d'Or, becoming the first player other than Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo to receive the award since 2007.

The midfielder, 33, who helped Croatia reach the men's World Cup final in Russia in the summer, is the first Croatian to win the prestigious prize, which is voted for by journalists.

On a historic evening in Paris, the ceremony had a women's category for the first time since its inception in 1956, with Norway's Ada Hegerberg crowned the inaugural women's Ballon d'Or winner.

The 23-year-old scored in this year's Champions League final, playing a key role in Lyon winning the tournament for a third successive year.

But there was controversy during the ceremony, with co-host Martin Solveig widely criticized on social media after asking the striker during the presentation: "Do you know how to twerk?" The player responded by saying "no."

Solveig later apologized and said he didn't meant to offend anyone. "This was a joke, probably a bad one, and I want to apologize for the one I may have offended. Sorry about that," Solveig said in a tweeted video.

Kylian Mbappe, who dazzled for France as Les Bleus triumphed in Russia in the summer, won the newly-formed Kopa award for the best young player.

The 19-year-old finished fourth overall, above Messi in fifth. Ronaldo was second, with France and Atletico Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann third and Liverpool and Egypt star Mo Salah sixth.

'An unbelievable feeling'

For all of Mbappe's scintillating play for his country and Paris Saint-Germain, it is Real Madrid star Modric who has broken more than a decade of Messi-Ronaldo dominance.

"It's an unbelievable feeling," said Modric, who helped Real win a third-straight Champions League in May before guiding Croatia to the World Cup final in July, its best ever performance at the tournament.

"It's a big pleasure to be here among all these players."

Since Brazilian Kaka was crowned the world's best player in 2007, Messi and Ronaldo have won the Ballon d'Or a record five times each -- no one else has won the award more than three times.

Modric also won the Best FIFA men's player award earlier this year and becomes only the fourth player to win football's two biggest individual prizes in the same year, following Bobby Charlton (1966), Johan Cruyff (1974) and Paolo Rossi (1982).

Central to Croatia's rise

Modric's journey to picking up football's highest individual honor is an improbable one.

Growing up during the Balkans war, his father joined the Croatian army, while his grandfather was shot by Croatian Serb rebels and his house was burned down, forcing the family to flee to the Adriatic coast.

The midfielder has been central to his country's recent rise, which now sees Croatia ranked the fourth in FIFA's rankings.

The Ballon d'Or dates back to 1956. At first only incorporating European players, in 2007 was opened up to include ever player in the world.

Under the current format, the list of nominees is drawn up by weekly magazine France Football, with journalists from around the world voting on the final winner.

          Road categorisation - OpenStreetMap versus Flemish Planning Documents      Cache   Translate Page      

Intro

First of all, some background. I'm employed by a consultancy agency, and anything traffic/mobility related is part of my job. It should also imply I'm familiar with several planning documents...

When diving into the world that is OpenStreetMap, I've had to realize a few things. Things in OpenStreetMap do NOT always mean what I assume they mean. Road categorisation is one of the key points here, and frequent need to repeat the explanation has finally made me create a diary post on the subject. For clarification I'll try to explain in english, but add the corresponding terms in dutch after.

The problem

At the core of the issue is semantics. OpenStreetMap and 'the real world' but use certain terms, like 'primary roads', 'secondary roads', 'tertiary roads'. These are however not synonymous, and editing OpenStreetMap just to be in line with those planning documents is often well.. wrong.

The planning context

  • Primary roads ('primaire wegen') are selected in the RSV ('Ruimtelijk Structuurplan Vlaanderen', or 'spatial structural plan Flanders'). They deal with the connections between 'Grootstedelijke gebieden' - essentially the main metropoles. Think along the likes of Gent, Antwerpen, Brussel, Brugge, ...
  • Secondary roads ('secundaire wegen') are selected one planning level lower, at a provincial level. The PRS ('Provinciaal Ruimtelijk Structuurplan') selects these. They deal with the connections between regional poles.
  • Tertiary roads are not named as such, but fit under the umbrella of 'lokale wegen'. In planning documents, we speak of 'lokale wegen types I, II and III', where I and II are dealing with the connections between very local poles, and III is basically whatever didn't fit elsewhere'. Selection of these happens in the 'Gemeentelijke Mobiliteitsplan' ('communal mobility plan).

In addition, note that there's always multiple versions, where typically the 'I' version means connection between poles of a same scale, and the 'II' version means collecting traffic from a lower level. In an attempt to summarize, here's an attempt at graphical representation of the principles behind it: Summary of the road categorisation according to planning documents. (Based on courses by Joris Willems, as I was taught at Vives Kortrijk)

The OpenStreetMap way

I'll base the comparsion of the wiki page for the belgian conventions: wiki page

At first glance, the comparison still seems straightforward:

  • Hoofdwegen vs Motorway

  • Primaire wegen vs Primary

  • Secundaire wegen vs Secondary

  • Lokale wegen I & II vs Tertiary

  • Options to specify more clearly what 'lokale wegen III' are (paths, service roads, residential roads, ...)

... leaving only 'trunk' as the odd one out.

Upon digging in a bit deeper however, the criteria as described are detailed in part through relation with the road numbers.

What once started as a ideal world (N1-N9 connect province capitals with Brussels, Nx0 add on to those in a radial pattern, interconnection those), with Nxx turning those basic structures into a finer mesh based on local city distribution. Proper 'ringroads' around cities get an Rxx number, which lets you filter out those functions too. And where there's only 'partial ring roads' around smaller towns, the part that circles around gets the Nxx number, while the old downgraded trajectory (which hopefully got an ACTUAL downgrade in profile) gets a number like Nxxa or Nxxd, or any variation of the sorts.

That seems sensible enough to link it to the categorisation, regardless of what interpretation (OSM vs planning) is taken into account.

Intended use versus actual use

One of the key principles we adhere to when mapping is 'sticking to ground truth'. It's at times a sad realisation, but many roads have a lay-out, a certain 'look and feel', that leans more towards a different function then the actual intended use.

This inherently implies that for cases a road that should only give access to a small residential area (highway = residential, or a 'lokale weg III') actually has the appearance of a tertiary road, or that what should be a major axis in the traffic network has a rather underwhelming profile making it look and feel like a lower category..

We (the belgian community, and I'd assume by extension most communities) chose not to map according to 'vision documents', but to what we can see / survey in the field. Especially tertiary / secondary roads are subject to different interpretations between the two.

I still don't get the fuss - where does it actually differ?

Nothing like a good example to make a point. I've collected a few examples from my own region, as these were the cases that initially got me stumped.

The R32 - Ringroad around Roeselare

The R32, according to OSM logic, is a ring-road, with an Rxx number, and should therefor entirely be classified as 'primary' road all along the way. However, structural planning documents disagree: rather then seeing it as an actual 'ring-road' to divert traffic around the city, they see it as a 'traffic collecting road' towards the E403 - which 'collects' for example traffic from the northern branch of the N32 and the N36, then 'connects' those streams to a higher degree network...
The R32 This would imply it being a secondary road in the sections west of the N32, and primary between N32 and E403 both ways.. which is means the majority of the length is judged differently.

Meiboomlaan Roeselare

In OpenStreetMap you'll see Meiboomlaan in Roeselare marked as 'secondary'. It carries a number (N37), and it also looks like it's a road for a connection at a semi-high scale (watch it here ).

If we were to judge that road merely on planning documents alone, it is a 'lokale weg II', which boils down to a tertiary road...

In comparison, Hoogleedsesteenweg (connection to neighbouring town Hooglede) and Beversesteenweg (connection between Roeselare and part-community Beveren) which do form a connection between poles at a local level, do not exceed 'tertiary' status in OSM, largely due to a lack an N-number.... Somewhat ironical, within the limits of the so called 'Kleine Ring' (Westlaan - Noordlaan - Brugsesteenweg - Koning Leopold III-laan - Mandellaan - Kaaistraat - Koning Albert I-laan), having or not having an N-number doesn't mean all that much - these roads are now owned and maintained by the city of Roeselare.

But my choice is the better one!

Err.. maybe it is, maybe it's not. We need some common ground to determine how we tag things, and obtain a database (plus a rendered map) that fits as close to reality as we can get it. Sure, given the very very very similar structure and terminology it's easy to get carried away and 'straighten out this mess'. Believe me, I've been there. But I'm used to thinking in 'planning' and 'networks' and the theoretical part of how we'd like things to have. But untill that day, we should map things as they are.

You didn't mention Living Streets, School Streets, Cyclestreets, ...'

You're absolutely right, I didn't. These are all subcategories of what we'd call 'Lokale wegen III', and by default, OSM has a lot more flexibility to classify what's what. You'll never get overruled on these purely based on what's in any sort of planning document. I took the liberty of considering these out of the scope of this diary post.

          Why the climate change problem is starting to look too big to solve      Cache   Translate Page      
In the daunting math of climate action, individual choices and government policies aren't adding up.

Solar panels are being nailed to rooftops, colossal wind turbines bestride the plains and oceans, and a million electric vehicles are on U.S. roads - and it isn't enough. Even if the world did an unlikely series of about-faces - halting deforestation, going vegetarian, paying $50 a ton carbon taxes, boosting energy efficiency, doubling car mileage, and more - it would not be enough. "There's no silver bullet," said Andrew Jones, co-founder of the modeling firm Climate Interactive. "There's silver buckshot: many actions in many domains." As the 24th U.N. conference on climate change kicks off this week, a steady drumbeat of scientific reports have sounded warnings about current climate trajectories. One warned of the need to curb global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius - 2.7 degrees Fahrenheit - over preindustrial levels instead of the widely accepted target of 2 degrees Celsius. Another warned of the growing gap between the commitments made at earlier U.N. conferences and what is needed to steer the planet off its current path to calamitous global warming. If it sounds downbeat, that's because it is. The world has waited so long that preventing disruptive climate change requires action "unprecedented in scale," the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change said in an October report. William Nordhaus, the Yale University professor who just won the Nobel Prize for his work on the economics of climate change, recently described his outlook like this: "I never use the word 'pessimism'; I always use the word 'realism,' but I'd say it's a kind of dark realism today." Climate scientists and policy experts realize that they walk a fine line between jolting consumers and policymakers into action and immobilizing them with paralyzing pessimism about the world's ability to hit climate targets. "If you're driving on a highway and the car in front of you stops short, and you slam on brakes and realize that you're going to hit the guy no matter what, that's not the time to take your foot off the brake," said John Sterman, a professor of management at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's business school. "And you certainly don't step on the gas." Sterman said that the world has missed the chance to contain warming without huge disruptions. "Now, it's technically possible to do that, but we don't have the policies in place," he said. "That's discouraging. But that just means we have to redouble our efforts." It's not that corporations and governments haven't attacked the problem or made breathtaking advances in energy technology. The cost of solar has plunged 78 percent for utility-scale projects since 2010. Over the same period, the cost of wind electricity fell nearly a quarter; the biggest turbines offshore now have arms weighing roughly 35 tons each that stretch nearly two football fields across. Even China is making some progress. While its rapidly growing economy keeps emissions rising overall, it is coughing out less carbon dioxide for every unit of economic output. But effective policy is lacking. Nordhaus advocates a whopping carbon tax, which the Climate Interactive model shows would kill off most coal, sharply reduce driving and boost purchases of more fuel efficient vehicles. Getting such a carbon tax adopted in the United States, however, is hard to imagine. Washington state voters in November rejected a $15-per-ton carbon "fee" after Big Oil companies poured more than $31 million into the state to block the measure. BP, which had endorsed a $40-per-ton nationwide tax, gave the most to defeat the bill. Congress hasn't shown any appetite for a carbon tax, either. A proposal to impose a $40-per-ton carbon tax and return the revenue to people in dividends has not caught fire yet. In France, President Emmanuel Macron has ignited protests by proposing fuel taxes he says are needed to fight climate change. "One cannot be on Monday for the environment," Macron said, "and on Tuesday against the increase of fuel prices." In an email, Nordhaus said that hitting the 2-degree target would require global carbon dioxide prices of about $250 a ton in 2020, and rising rapidly after that. "This assumes that all major countries are onboard and that economies can handle a large fiscal and trade shock in which energy expenditures rise by about $2 trillion in a few years." Nordhaus has blamed the lack of climate policy progress on the strong incentive for what economists call "free-riding." "People free-ride when they jump the turnstile on the subway," he said. "Nations free-ride in military treaties such as NATO when they enjoy the benefits of the strong U.S. military to protect them while doing little to pay for the common defense." And when it comes to climate change, he said, free-riding is "particularly pernicious." That's partly because international organizations lack the authority to enforce rules on wayward nations. In Poland, several major countries are expected to admit to missing the targets they agreed to at the Paris conference three years ago. One example is Brazil, whose new president Jair Bolsonaro, the "tropical Trump," has talked about clearing part of the Amazon for roads and development. That would damage the world's lungs - the trees that absorb carbon dioxide and pump out oxygen at high rates. There's lots of carbon to absorb. The world will need to sustain consumers' habits and living standards while replacing the energy industry's massive infrastructure. Every day, the world burns about 100 million barrels, or 4.2 billion gallons, of oil - up about 2 percent from the year before. Most of that goes into the gasoline tanks of cars and trucks; there are nearly 270 million on the road in the United States alone. The average age of those cars is 11.6 years, according to the Transportation Department, meaning that replacing the fleet with more-efficient or electric vehicles would take a long time. In November, the number of electric vehicles in the United States hit the 1 million mark. But that was three years later than President Barack Obama's target, first issued in 2009. And that makes only a small dent in the nation's greenhouse gas emissions. Thanks to the growth in the car market, in 2016 there were nearly 12 million more cars with internal combustion engines emitting greenhouse gases than there were in 2008. The math on coal is just as grim. Global coal consumption is running at more than 5 billion tons annually. In the United States alone, coal fills 4.4 million rail cars every year. Closing down U.S. and European coal-fired power plants, which are 40 years old on average, could happen, but the average age of coal plants in Asia is just 11 years. "Most emissions linked to energy infrastructure are already essentially locked-in," the International Energy Agency said in its November World Energy Outlook. A project off the coast of Belgium provides a good example of the need to run to stand still. In November, MHI Vestas, the world's largest maker of wind turbines, announced it would provide 23 of its new biggest turbines to a project in the Belgian North Sea. The massive turbines can power 137,471 German homes, the company said. Yet the number of German dwellings grew by 245,000 in 2017. Royal Dutch Shell chief executive Ben van Beurden noted in 2014 that solar and wind provide about 1 percent of the world's energy. "How on earth do we think that 1 percent is going to become 90 percent of a system twice as big as what it is by the middle of the century?" he asked. "Whether you like it or not, it won't happen." Even with large advances in renewable energy, he said, the share of world energy met by oil and gas would decline from 85 percent to 75 percent by the middle of the century, a time when the IPCC said net carbon dioxide emissions should drop to zero. "That might be a gloom-and-doom-type picture," van Beurden said. "But I think the real challenge is not so much how do we accelerate renewables but more about how do we decarbonize the system we have." Yet taking carbon out of the system means coming up with technology - and a carbon price to cover the costs. Companies already know how to take carbon dioxide from the air and stuff it below the earth's surface. But it's expensive, and unless it's used for enhanced oil recovery, it makes no economic sense without a carbon price. "Like a married couple that has put off saving for the future for too long, at some point it becomes nearly impossible to retire comfortably," Nigel Purvis, co-founder of the advocacy group Climate Advisers, wrote in 2015. "Given where global emissions are today and the urgency of reducing emissions, we just don't have time for a system that gradually increases climate ambition every five years - the numbers simply don't work." On Nov. 27, the U.N. Environment Program issued a report saying that the gap between countries' action pledges and the measures to limit warming is getting larger. While Obama had called the Paris deal "a turning point," the report says that seven major countries, including the United States, are falling short of the actions they pledged to take. The UNEP report also says that after three years of relatively stable emissions, global greenhouse emissions were up 1.2 percent in 2017. Purvis now says his views haven't changed. But, he pleaded, "Don't cast me as a pessimist." He said: "I am an optimist by nature, and I am blown away by progress in certain sectors. If you had told me 10 years ago that wind or solar would be as cheap as they are, I wouldn't have believed you." His assessment hasn't discouraged people who say that the world needs - and will inevitably develop - a breakthrough technology. They fall into a long tradition of people who place their faith in American inventiveness and know-how. Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates has invested in Breakthrough Energy Ventures, a $1 billion private investment fund, to fund researchers. "We need the basic research, but we have to pair that with people willing to fund high-risk breakthrough energy companies," Gates said in a video on the Breakthrough Energy website. He said "that's what gives us the chance of having a solution that really lets us not having to give up energy usage and yet not damage the environment. I am optimistic." One of the earliest climate change models was drawn up in 2004 by a pair of Princeton University professors - Robert Socolow, an engineer, and Stephen Pacala, an ecologist. Their 50-year scenario was optimistic: "Humanity already possesses the fundamental scientific, technical and industrial know-how to solve the carbon and climate problem for the next half-century," they wrote. They said that no breakthrough was necessary. In their model, a series of "wedges" could alter the trajectory of rising temperatures. The wedges included things such as: scaling up wind capacity tenfold; covering an area the size of New Jersey with solar panels; doubling the fuel efficiency of all cars; tripling the world's capacity of nuclear power; halting global deforestation; or planting new forests over an area the size of the Lower 48 United States. "I like to say that we decomposed a heroic challenge into a limited set of monumental tasks," Socolow wrote later. In 2011, Socolow wrote that the number of wedges needed had increased from seven to nine. In an interview, he said it is now approaching 10. Socolow now prefers to call climate action a horse race. At the moment, wind and solar are running ahead faster than expected, while nuclear power and carbon capture are trailing behind. He says he worries that the 2-degree target is setting people up for an inevitable letdown. "My worry is that people will start talking about game over and a line being crossed over irreparably," Socolow said. "Climate change is not like that."


          For U.S. Troops, Home For The Holidays Is Often Just A Wish      Cache   Translate Page      

World War II Veteran Recalls His Own Time Away From Home And Under Fire

Photo credit: Instagram @opgratitude 




The holiday season means family time for most Americans, but that’s not the case for many U.S. military personnel who can’t return home to eat turkey dinners, open presents, light the menorah or participate in other traditions.

It’s a situation veterans who served in decades past can identify with, as they too found themselves far from home between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day, often under harrowing conditions.

For 95-year-old Art Schmitz, for example, Christmas Eve 1944 was “just another day under fire” because the Battle of the Bulge was well underway.

“Several other soldiers and I were holed up in a house in Bastogne, Belgium, singing Christmas carols when we heard the drone of approaching planes,” says Schmitz, author of the memoir A Tourist in Uniform: World War II Memories.

“Grabbing our rifles a little tighter, for all the good that would do, we held our breath and waited.”

The first plane dropped flares, lighting up the night skies. The soldiers scrambled to the cellar stairs, falling down the steps as bombs exploded and parts of the house collapsed above them.

“On Christmas morning, we discovered that the house had taken a direct hit from a 500-pound bomb that landed on the toilet, splitting it in two,” Schmitz says. “The bomb just about demolished the house, but it didn’t explode. I vowed I was going to come back to Bastogne for a peaceful Christmas.”

Today, there are about 1.3 million active military personnel, and about 200,000 of those are deployed overseas. Each holiday season, a number of organizations provide support to the troops and their families, and also accept donations from Americans who want to help. A few of those include:


  • Red Cross. The Red Cross has a “Holidays for Heroes” program that enables people to “give something that means something” during the holiday season. The Red Cross says it invites the public “to join their local Red Cross offices to thank and recognize members of the military, veterans and their families through a variety of activities.” Anyone interested in helping should check with their local Red Cross office to learn more.
  • USO. The USO delivers holiday care packages during various holidays throughout the year. The USO reports that since the program was launched in 2011, it has distributed nearly 1,500 boxes that brought holiday cheer to more than 110,000 service members in more than 500 locations.
  • Operation Gratitude. This non-profit organization sends individually addressed care packages to troops serving overseas, veterans, military families and others. Each package contains snacks, hygiene products, entertainment, and handmade items, as well as personal letters of support.
After surviving that Christmas Eve in 1944, Art Schmitz recalls making it to the mess hall for a much-needed Christmas Day meal, and then being handed a copy of General Anthony C. McAuliffe’s holiday message to his troops.

In the conclusion of that message, the general wrote: “We are giving our country and our loved ones at home a worthy Christmas present and being privileged to take part in this gallant feat of arms are truly making for ourselves a Merry Christmas.”


About Art Schmitz: Art Schmitz, author of A Tourist in Uniform: World War II Memories, is a retired teacher and a World War II veteran who was born and raised in Milwaukee. With the help of the GI Bill, he earned a Master's Degree from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in Exceptional Education for the Mentally Challenged student. He taught in Wisconsin and four other states before retiring after 35 years in the classroom. He is a lifetime stamp collector and an avid fisherman who has fished in 191 bodies of water in three countries.

          The Real Significance Of The French Tax Revolt      Cache   Translate Page      

Via Alt-Market

Any large and apparently spontaneous activist event can force a measure of change within a system (depending on longevity), but the problem is always how that movement is being directed.  Is it a legitimate grass roots effort, or is there something else at play? 

I am reserving judgement on the "Yellow Jackets" for now, and simply watching.  When they start engaging in public relations regularly, they will present terms, and also probably present their vision of France's future.  There will also be politicians that attach themselves to the movement if the movement achieves some success, as they seem poised to do.  Then, we will know who is involved, and if the movement is controlled opposition or a real front against centralization. 

Also keep in mind that the globalists may be seeking to give such "populist" movements room to grow, because they plan on collapsing the system anyway and blaming the whole mess on decentralization activists.  I certainly hope this is a win for the people of France, but I would never underestimate the 4th Generation warfare of the establishment.

- Brandon Smith, Founder of Alt-Market.com

This article was written by Peter C. Earle and originally published at AIER.org

The gilets jaunes (Yellow Jacket) anti-tax riots in France escalated over the past weekend, again citing the impact of higher taxes on fossil fuels – and high levels of taxation in general – on everyday life. French citizens, already subject to the highest taxes in the OECD, are being crushed by both new and systematically increasing taxes, and have taken to the streets by the hundreds of thousands in a “citizen’s revolution”. Recommendations to declare a state of emergency have for the time being been tabled.

With no sense of irony whatsoever, in a press conference on Saturday French President Emmanuel Macron stated:

“I will never accept violence.”

Yet violence is the core component of his chosen vocation as a statesman.

Taxation poses as an equitable transaction – goods and services provided by a government in return for a fee (more galling and Orwellian, a “contribution”) from the taxpayer – but the nature of the interaction is obvious to all but the indifferent or determinedly thoughtless. It is not voluntary and does not follow from reason; neither will even the most indefatigable defenders of state appropriation, given the choice (and confidentiality), miss an opportunity to skirt the taxman and retain their property.

The force of violent compulsion is the quintessence of taxation and tax policy, thinly ensconced behind a veil of platitudes regarding social goods and general welfare. In Paris, an oft-repeated phrase among the protesters is that they’re “fed up.” Ambulance drivers have joined the protests, as have both teachers and students in at least 100 schools across France.

Levying taxes on individuals to combat climate change – or for the accomplishment of any social betterment project – is unfailingly undertaken in the name of the sanctity of life. Yet if life is an invaluable state and condition, so too is that of the right of personal property. A life absent the ability to enjoy the products of our toil by utilizing them directly or voluntarily exchanging them with that of others is a life circumscribed, and thus a life forcibly, purposely denigrated in quality.

Media images depicting the tax insurrection are dominated by burning cars, graffiti on the Arc de Triomphe, and clashes with police – despite the fact that the majority of the 136,000 protestors on Saturday were disruptive but peaceful.

Yet none should doubt the long-seething precursor to this conflagration despite the impossibility of capturing winnowed domestic budgets and severe fiscal hardship on film. Furor arising over a life circumscribed by bad luck or adverse conditions is considerable; that which results from unquestionable bureaucratic decrees is ultimately incendiary.

The public reaction to the incremental repression of life’s expression by state coercion at a certain point becomes immediate and visceral. It is playing itself out in the streets of Paris right now.

Consider the larger stakes here. For more than 100 years, European governments have built their invasive states, with the public sector controlling ever more of life. The promise of combining security and prosperity through state enhancement has failed to achieve its promise. And what does the political class propose? More government power, this time in the name of green energy.

At some point, it is too much. Just as the citizens suffering under Soviet rule finally said no more, the people suffering under social-democratic rule might someday do the same. Observers have waited decades to see reforms that might forestall such a thing. Reforms haven’t happened. Now the people are in the streets, setting fires and protesting the police.

And it’s not just France. It’s spreading to Belgium and the Netherlands – the building of a European Spring.

What we see in Paris today might be the end of social democracy as we know it. What comes in its place is what the battle of ideas today is really about.

Silly Euroserfs gearing up to battle Russia which can barely keep itself going let alone invade. China at 1.3 billion rapidly increasing GDP can simply buy Russia just as Great Britain bought into everywhere.

Meanwhile the conquest of the Euroserfs is going great after 1000 years of substantial but not total success by Islamic jihadists.

The great European industrialisation and scientific expansion along with Virtuous Victorian Values rolled the Moslems back. Spain and the Balkans were their limit with skirmishes right up to Tours and Vienna.

Now the Moslems have conquered Sweden, Londonistan, Belgium, France ... but the remaining dopey Euroserfs think Russia, Putin, USA, Big D and China are the problem.

China meanwhile is sensibly not messing about with the Uighur jihadists.

Tarken was named after Tarkan who is the character created by Istanbul man Sezgin Burak who befriended my wife and me in 1974 while Turkey was in conflict with Greece over Cyprus. He took us to meet his lovely family. He called one of his sons Tarkan. There is a Tarken Moore in Canada named after our Tarken ... note to self .. ElM tells me to get out more ... giggle

Tarkan with wolf and horse would ride far far out east to do battle with the evil Chinese.

Meanwhile, Genghis Khan did similar battles far far west and as far down as Turkey. Crimea was easy meat for Genghis.

Via China, Hong Kong, NZ and Londonistan, Genghis descendants are in a pincer move on jihad.

It's quite a moving picture.

There's quite a constituency for a Made in China approach to jihadists in Eurostan. The easterners are spitting the dummy, pulling up the drawbridge and dropping the portcullis.

The Euroserfs would do better to ally with Russia than to think of fighting them.

The Norwegian manoeuvres to plan Yank tanks to Murmansk were ridiculous when the actual threat is inside the capitals of Eurostan.

Meanwhile England ponders Brexit freedom while Eurostan plans to keep them in serfdom.

The end of history is far from now. At least full scale WWIII did not yet happen and G20 was smiley.

          US threatens termination of INF treaty, demands Russia's compliance within 60 days      Cache   Translate Page      

[Belgium], Dec 05 (ANI): United States Secretary of State Micheal R Pompeo fired a warning of suspending the Cold War-era Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty if Russia did not adhere with the accord within 60 days.

Speaking during a NATO meeting here, Pompeo said that when the INF was signed in 1987, it represented a "good-faith effort between two rivals to de-escalate the threat of nuclear war".

"But whatever successes this treaty helped produce, today we must confront Russian cheating on its arms control obligations. As I told my fellow ministers earlier today, our nations have a choice. We either bury our head in the sand or we take common-sense action in response to Russia's flagrant disregard for the express terms of the INF Treaty," Pompeo said during a press briefing.

The US Secretary of State further stated there have been at least 30 instances since 2013 itself where the US has flagged Russia's non-compliance with the treaty and stressed that "a failure to return to compliance would have consequences".

"The United States today declares it has found Russia in material breach of the treaty and will suspend our obligations as a remedy effective in 60 days unless Russia returns to full and verifiable compliance," Pompeo said.

The warning comes as a milder version of President Donald Trump's announcement in October stating he had decided to "terminate the agreement," The Washington Post reported.

The INF agreement banned the production and use of nuclear and non-nuclear missiles with a range of 500 to 5, 500 kilometres. The treaty has been the base for Europe's security over three decades, although Trump has stated that it affords China a military advantage over the US as it is not bound by the treaty.

Addressing the issue of other states like North Korea and Iran, apart from China, being free to build intermediate-range missiles, Pompeo said, "There is no reason the United States should continue to cede this crucial military advantage to revisionist powers like China, in particular when these weapons are being used to threaten and coerce the United States and its allies in Asia."

The INF agreement was a turning point in the Cold War as it led to the elimination of over 2,600 missiles and ended the long-standing nuclear stand-off between East and West Europe. Trump's announcement of terminating the treaty raised concerns of a revival of Cold War tensions.

"I regret that we now most likely will see the end of the INF Treaty. We really felt that the world was moving forward when the Soviet Union and the United States in 1987 agreed," NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said.

While the US' withdrawal was slated to go into effect on Tuesday, European leaders including German Chancellor Angela Merkel convinced Trump for a postponement during the recently concluded G20 Summit in Argentina. (ANI)

The king of the Belgians will not attend the re-opening of his country's notorious Africa Museum, for fear of being dragged into the debate about the continent's looted treasures. The museum is to re-open at the weekend after a five-year refurbishment meant to better explain Belgium's brutal colonial-era exploitation of the royal territory in what is now the Democratic Republic of Congo. Previously, the former Royal Museum for Central Africa had a reputation for outdated exhibits that minimised or even glorified the crimes of Belgian colonists against Africans under their rule. Curators now hope that the museum will put the art and artefacts of the era in proper context, but the re-opening coincides with a new debate on whether Belgium should hold the pieces at all.

Joseph Sansome, leading man and lifelong George Michael fan, comments of his role "Being the star of the Fastlove show has been a dream come true and it's amazing to perform at theatres and Arenas all over the UK. I am honoured to be representing George Michael and his memory through the show, and we have very exciting times ahead with a UK Arena Tour and performing at some of the same venues that the great man performed at. I often have to pinch myself to the reality of it all".

George Michael's saxophonist Ed Barker, who will be playing on select shows says, "It was an honour to play for George Michael as his sax soloist and as you can probably imagine, that's a hugely tough act to follow. But every night this show reminds me how it felt. As Fastlove tours the nation's best venues, I almost feel like I'm there with him again each time I walk on stage. We've got a fantastic band, fabulous dancers, Joseph is great, and the audiences really know how to party. It's a huge pleasure to be involved and a real privilege to be able to keep George's music alive".

Anton Stephans, who will be performing on the arena shows, that will include performing as Elton John for the 'Don't Let The Sun Go Down' duet, says "Performing with George is, without doubt, the highlight of my career, it was an absolute honour. I went to the Fastlove West End premiere in January (2018) out of pure curiosity and I knew immediately that this is a show that loves George and wants to celebrate him and his incredible music. I contacted James (the show's creator) immediately to tell him how much I loved it and that I wanted to be involved. It's taken a while, but we are finally here and I can't wait to get started on the special arena tour."

           Sleepy twink cutie joins his horny buddy for a perfect bj and hard fuck with mutual facial action       Cache   Translate Page      

Having travelled all the way from his native Belgium in search of the very best sexual adventures a young man could ever hope for, the last thing Liam Stone wants to be confronted with is a lover who prefers sleep to hard cock. As such, the lad might be forgiven for feeling that his journey to Prague is all set to be a big disappointment when he wakes up in Navon Raffi’s bed to discover that his fuck-buddy appears too fatigued to play. Anyone who’s ever seen Raffi in action, however, knows full well that that’s not a situation that’s ever gonna last long; and so it proves here, with the exchange of a few kisses clearly sufficient to wake the sleeping prince into a cock-crazed fever. Indeed, moments later and the two fellows are 69-ing like their fucking lives are depending on it; before Raffi finally directs his keen attention on the new boy’s sweet little fuck-hole and begins to rim Stone for all he’s worth. Suffice it to say it’s no time at all before Naffi’s handsome, uncut schlong has replaced his tongue in proceedings, forcing every hard inch of twink flesh deep into his mate’s guts – much to Stone’s clear relief. Cue a fabulous display of boy-on-boy rutting that sees Naffi quite literally pummel the newbie in a whole series of top-notch positions – exactly the kind of entertainment that is gonna get a legion of STAXUS wankers yanking their dicks in appreciation. For all that it’s arguably the sight of the two lads spewing the contents of their balls over each other’s faces as they top-and-tail for the climax that merits keenest acclaim; a fitting mega-sticky crescendo for a first class act!

          A pálos rend építészeti emlékei       Cache   Translate Page      


Blog indult A pálos rend építészeti emlékei címmel, mely hetente több cikkben tudósít a pálosok jelenéről és múltjáról, építészeti és művészeti alkotásairól.

 
Új, a pálos rend építészeti emlékeit bemutató, a legújabb kutatási eredményeket is ismertető blog indult, melyet szeretettel ajánlunk látogatóink figyelmébe.

Az egyetlen magyar alapítású szerzetesrend, a pálosok a 13. század közepe óta a mai napig része a magyar történelemnek. Hogy megérthessük ránk hagyott építészeti emlékeiket, ismernünk kell a pálos rend történetét, hitvallását, életét, történelemben való szerepét a megmaradt írott források és a szakemberek kutatásai által. A pálos rend építészeti emlékei című blog hetente több, érdekes és nem ritkán meglepő témájú cikkben tudósít a pálosok jelenéről és múltjáról, építészeti és művészeti alkotásairól.

A pálos építészeti blogról bővebben

A blog azért született meg, hogy hiteles információkat tárjon az érdeklődők elé a pálos rend építészetének sajátosságairól, különlegességeiről.

A pálos rend 13. századi megalapítása után sorra épültek a kisebb remetekolostorok Magyarországon és külföldön is. A 14 és a 15. század a pálosok életében a megerősödés és virágzás kora, ebben az időben, hazánkban már 64, míg Erdélyben 3, Szlavóniában, Dalmáciában és Isztriában 8 kolostoruk volt. Később Lengyelországban, Németországban, az USA-ban, Olaszországban, Ausztriában, Szlovákiában, Horvátországban, Ukrajnában, Dél-Afrikában, Belgiumban, Fehéroroszországban, Csehországban és Kamerunban is létesültek pálos rendházak. Gyöngyösi Gergely, a rend történetírója a mohácsi vészig terjedő időszakban kb. 100 kolostort említ, a török kiűzése után ebből mindössze már csak 12 kolostora működött a pálos rendnek a középkori Magyarországon. Jelenleg csupán néhány templom áll még hazánkban középkori alapokon, a hajdani pálos rendházak romokban állnak, vagy épp a földdel váltak egyenlővé.
A pálos rend építészetének legnagyobb kutatója kétségkívül Guzsik Tamás volt, aki 1979-től tizenöt publikációt adott ki a pálosokkal kapcsolatban. Valószínű élete utolsó hónapjaiban állította össze a pálos rend építészetének értékelését és összefoglalását, A pálos rend építészete a középkori Magyarországon című könyvet, amely több évtizedes kutatómunka eredménye. Guzsik jelentős munkája, a fennmaradt középkori oklevelek, Gyöngyösi Gergely 1520 körül született rendtörténeti írása, valamint 19. századi kutatók, így Ádám Iván és Rómer Flóris munkássága lévén megannyi információval rendelkezünk manapság, hogy majdnem teljes képet kapjunk a rend történetére, történelemben való jelentőségére, építészetük sajátosságaira vonatkozóan. Ehhez járulnak hozzá a kor szakemberei, történészek, régészek, akik a legújabb kutatásokkal cáfolják vagy bizonyítják a középkorból fennmaradt források hiteles voltát.

A pálos rend építészeti emlékei blog azért született meg, hogy ezeket a hiteles információkat az olvasóközönség, az érdeklődők elé tárja. A pálos rend építészetének különlegességeit és sajátosságait, a pálosok életéből vett érdekes eseményekkel egyetemben megismertesse azokkal, akiket érdekel Magyarország történelme, a középkori építészet és élet, a gótika, a pálos rend története és múltja. Annak érdekében, hogy a jelen kor embere viszonylag teljes képet kapjon arról, mi is történt egykor egy-egy pálos rendház falai között, kik fordultak meg termeiben, és milyen jelentőséggel bírt egy-egy esemény az adott korban, a pálosok múltjának minden darabja fontos összetevő. Így a régészeti feltárások, kutatások eredményeinek közlése is fontos szerepet kapott a blogban, hiszen nélkülözhetetlen információkat tesznek hozzá a rendtörténet és a magyar történelem folyamatos pontosításához.

At some point, it is too much. Just as the citizens suffering under Soviet rule finally said no more, the people suffering under social-democratic rule might someday do the same. Observers have waited decades to see reforms that might forestall such a thing. Reforms haven’t happened. Now the people are in the streets, setting fires and protesting the police. -- And it’s not just France. It’s spreading to Belgium and the Netherlands – the building of a European Spring. -- What we see in Paris today might be the end of social democracy as we know it. What comes in its place is what the battle of ideas today is really about.


          U.S. warns Russia it is ready to abandon key nuclear pact      Cache   Translate Page      

BRUSSELS – The United States warned Russia Tuesday it has 60 days to start complying with a landmark nuclear missile treaty or Washington will abandon the pact, raising concern about Europe’s future security.

At NATO talks in Brussels, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo accused Russia of “cheating at its arms control obligations” under the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty. He said in 60 days, Washington would activate a six-month notice period for leaving the pact.

“Our nations have a choice. We either bury our head in the sand or we take common sense action in response to Russia’s flagrant disregard for the expressed terms of the INF Treaty,” Pompeo told reporters.

The U.S. has shared intelligence evidence with its NATO allies that Russia’s new SSC-8 ground-fired cruise missile could give Moscow the ability to launch a nuclear strike in Europe with little or no notice.

The INF is a bilateral treaty between Washington and Moscow that bans all land-based cruise and ballistic missiles with a range between 500 and 5,500 kilometers (310-3,410 miles). Russia says the range of the new system does not exceed 500 kilometers.

Pompeo said Washington “would welcome a Russian change of heart” but that he has seen no indication that Moscow is likely to comply.

U.S. allies in NATO said Tuesday they “strongly support the finding of the United States that Russia is in material breach of its obligations” while Washington is respecting the treaty.

In a statement, NATO foreign ministers also called on Russia “to return urgently to full and verifiable compliance.”

“It’s up to Russia now to preserve the INF Treaty. They have a last chance to show and demonstrate in a verifiable way that they comply with the treaty,” NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg told reporters. “But we also have to prepare for a world without the treaty.”

Stoltenberg said the 29 NATO allies will “collectively develop responses” should the treaty be abandoned, but he declined to say what they might be.

“We have to remember that no arms control agreement will work if it is only respected by one party,” he said.

In Moscow, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told reporters that “Russia strictly complies with the provisions of the treaty, and the American side is aware of that.”

Russia’s actions in Ukraine also came under the spotlight at Tuesday’s NATO meeting.

Stoltenberg accused Russia of using the Crimean Peninsula as a platform to take control of waters off eastern Ukraine, as allies struggled Tuesday to find ways to dissuade Moscow from destabilizing the former Soviet republic.

Russia annexed Ukraine’s Crimean Peninsula in 2014, sparking NATO’s biggest military buildup in Eastern Europe since the Cold War. On Nov. 25, Russian border guards fired on three Ukrainian navy vessels near Crimea, where Russia’s Black Sea fleet is based. The vessels and the crews were captured.

Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin appealed for NATO support in the confrontation with Russia over the Black Sea and the adjacent Sea of Azov, a key commercial waterway for the country.

“Four years ago, Russia illegally annexed Crimea. Now Russia is attempting to use Crimea to expand its influence and control of the Sea of Azov,” Stoltenberg said.

But as to what more NATO would do beyond its existing sea patrols and air policing, he said: “There is already a lot of NATO in the Black Sea.”

NATO allies have helped modernize Ukraine’s armed forces and boosted their presence in the Black Sea over the last year, with more ships deployed in the region and more air policing. Three NATO allies on the Black Sea – Bulgaria, Romania and Turkey – are also taking individual measures.

NATO nations, individually and through the European Union, have also imposed economic and other sanctions on Russia since it annexed Crimea, but there is little appetite among the allies to broaden those measures.

Klimkin welcomed the political support he received in Brussels, but said: “We shouldn’t just stay on the level of declarations, however strong declarations are.”

“We need to create a coordinated response to the actions of Russia,” Klimkin said, adding that he raised “a set of practical steps with a number of proposals” at the meeting as to how NATO, Ukraine and Georgia might do that together.

He also suggested a possible ban on Russian ships entering other countries’ ports if Moscow continues to block the Sea of Azov and said he would raise the idea with European Union ministers next week.

Ukrainian authorities said Tuesday that shipping traffic has resumed on the Sea, but a senior U.S. State Department official said that at NATO “no one would see that as a satisfactory move or the end of the matter.”

A hágai székhelyű szervezet tájékoztatása szerint a Pollino fedőnevű, 2016-ban indított akció keretében Belgiumban, Hollandiában, Németországban, Olaszországban, illetve több dél-amerikai államban is házkutatásokat tartottak, rajtaütéseket hajtottak végre.

Fred Westerbeke holland főügyész elmondta, hogy a rendőrök mintegy kétmillió eurót és nagy mennyiségű kábítószert foglaltak le.

Az őrizetbe vetteket egyebek mellett bűnszervezetben való részvétellel, drogcsempészettel, pénzmosással, megvesztegetéssel, valamint erőszakos bűncselekményekkel gyanúsítják.

A németországi rajtaütésekben a szövetségi bűnügyi hivatal 240 munkatársát és a rendőrség 200 emberét, köztük terrorelhárító egységeket mozgósítottak, munkájukat az érintett tartományok több száz rendőre támogatja.

Sajtóhírek szerint az eljárás összefügg két klán, a Pelle-Vottari és a Nirta-Strangio viszályával, amelynek részeként 2007-ben agyonlőttek hat olasz állampolgárt az észak-rajna-vesztfáliai Duisburgban.

A 'Ndrangheta az utóbbi években Olaszország legerősebb bűnszervezete lett, meghatározó szerepe van a nemzetközi kokainkereskedelemben.

          Belgium's Antoine Kina, Canada's Floris Van Son set to join Hockey WC      Cache   Translate Page      

[India], Dec 4 (ANI): Belgium and Canada hockey teams on Tuesday were forced to make changes to their respective Pool C squads in the ongoing Men's Hockey World Cup at the Kalinga Stadium due to injuries to their key players.

Defender Emmanuel Stockbroekx, who sustained a hamstring injury during Belgium's 2-2 draw with India, will be replaced by Antoine Kina, who has 29 caps to his name. Kina was a member of the Belgium U-21 team that went onto claim the silver medal at the Junior World Cup in Lucknow two years ago.

Meanwhile, Canada's Brandon Pereira has also withdrawn through injury, with Floris van Son stepping into the fray. Forward Van Son, who has only 26 caps, has been part of the Canadian squad that competed in last year's Hockey World League Semi-Final in London, the 2017 Pan American Cup in Lancaster and the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.

As both Belgian and Canadian sides have sought approval from the International Hockey Federation (FIH), Kina and Van Son will be involved in their team's final Pool C matches on December 8, with Belgium facing South Africa and Canada taking on India respectively. (ANI)

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has been fined £8,000 after admitting a Football Association (FA) charge of improper conduct concerning his celebration of Divock Origi's winner in the Merseyside derby. Klopp sprinted onto the pitch to celebrate with goalkeeper Alisson after the Belgium international netted in the 96th minute to earn the Reds a 1-0 win at Anfield on Sunday. The German was charged by the FA on Monday and indicated earlier on Tuesday he would accept any fine that came his way. "I didn't want to do it and that's why I can now say it will not happen again because it was not on my radar that it's possible for me still," he told a news conference. "It was really long ago that it happened last time. "But in that moment it was very special and it happened. That's all. Nothing else to say about it. "It happened, it's a fine, I pay that, let's carry on. That's all." Liverpool visit Burnley in the Premier League on Wednesday.
          He can't play in his flip-flops! - Klopp on Mane fitness      Cache   Translate Page      
Sadio Mane and Andy Robertson remain injury doubts for Liverpool's Premier League clash with Burnley on Wednesday. Manager Jurgen Klopp revealed the Senegal international has been limited to wearing flip-flops since sustaining an "awful" cut to his foot in the Merseyside derby. Mane played the full match in Sunday's 1-0 win over Everton at Anfield but subsequently required stitches on an injury he suffered 20 minutes from the final whistle. Robertson, meanwhile, sustained a dead leg in the match and neither player has yet been passed fit for the trip to Turf Moor. "Sadio and Robbo we need to have another look today," Klopp told a news conference on Tuesday. "Sadio had an awful cut on his foot which needed to be stitched. "He's okay. He's walking around now, but in flip-flops. We don't play in flip-flops. Today he is not ready but we will see later. With Robbo it's not that serious, like with Sadio, but we need to have a look." Klopp also discussed the form of striker Roberto Firmino, who has managed only one goal in his last nine Premier League appearances - a run that stretches back to September 22. "It's not that he plays his best football in each second of the game but he's an important player and that's how it is in a player's career," Klopp commented.  "You have these moments where you fly and you can't really explain it and you have others where you have to work a bit harder to come again and fly. That's it. That's exactly for him the case. Nothing to worry about. "It's just a normal football season and we all have to go through these little holes and everything will be fine again, especially with him because his attitude is absolutely phenomenal. That makes it easier for him. He would never stop and that's good. Everything will be fine." Jürgen Klopp joins us from Melwood as we preview tomorrow's game @BurnleyOfficial. #BURLIV https://t.co/UEfNAguapD — Liverpool FC (@LFC) December 4, 2018 Liverpool were left to rely on a 96th-minute Divock Origi goal to settle the derby and Klopp says the Belgium international's contribution sets an example for his fringe players. "Divock and Dom Solanke are of course not in a fantastic situation in the squad - if you train day in, day out and in the end you are not picked in the squad it's not easy," he added. "But it's a wonderful example of making yourself ready for the moment. Everybody has the opportunity to shine. It was such an important thing, so nice. "It's football as well. Sometimes things change in a second in the right direction, sometimes in the wrong direction. "I don't know exactly how long he played, 10 minutes maybe, but three really good situations in that short time. It showed that he was really ready and he wanted it and he deserved it. A really nice story."

The FC crew answer your tweets on where Divock Origi's goal ranks among the luckiest of all time, Kane vs. Aubameyang and much more.

With the game goalless, the Belgium striker came off the Anfield bench in the 84th minute and proceeded to bundle home a dramatic stoppage-time winner thanks to an unlikely assist from Virgil van Dijk and unfortunate moment from Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.

Authorities are conducting co-ordinated raids in Germany, Italy, Belgium and the Netherlands in a crackdown on the Italian mafia. German federal police said there had been multiple arrests in the early morning raids on premises linked to the ‘ndrangheta, a southern Italy-based organised crime group. In Germany the focus was on the western state of North Rhine-Westphalia, which borders the Netherlands and Belgium, and Bavaria to the south. Police said the operation is being coordinated by Eurojust, a European unit established to fight cross-border organised crime. A news conference has been scheduled for later in the day in The Hague.

          90 arrested in international operation against Italian mafia      Cache   Translate Page      

The Hague, Dec 5 (IANS) In a major international campaign against the Italian mafia clan 'Ndrangheta, a total of 90 arrests were made on Wednesday, European judicial cooperation authority Eurojust announced here.

Supported by a coordination centre at Eurojust, judicial and law enforcement authorities from the Netherlands, Italy, Germany and Belgium executed the arrests and seizures against 'Ndrangheta, an organized crime group based in Calabria, Italy, for cocaine trafficking, money laundering, bribery and violence.

The action, code named "Pollino", was the result of an intensive joint investigation coordinated at European level, Xinhua news agency reported.

A total of 200 million euros ($227 million) of criminal money, as well as 140 kg of ecstasy pills and more than 3,000 kg of cocaine were seized.

"This shows that international crime can be tackled well if we work well together," said Eurojust Vice-President Filippo Spiezia.

Wil van Gemert, Deputy Director of Europol, said: "This shows the importance of international cooperation and I am convinced this operation will lead to new investigations."

The operation took place one day after Settimo Mineo, the alleged head or "godfather" of the Sicilian Mafia, Cosa Nostra, was arrested with 46 other people in the Palermo region of Italy, according to the Italian police and anti-Mafia prosecutors in Palermo.

Earlier this year, 170 people in Italy and Germany were arrested in an anti-Mafia swoop.

"This is just a small step," said Federico Cafiero De Raho, the Italian National Anti-mafia and Anti-terrorism Prosecutor during the press conference.

"These arrests are nothing for 'Ndrangheta. There should be over 1,000 arrests and billions of euros should be seized. The wealth and richness of this organization is enormous."

Volgens s is Monchi momenteel in ons land. De sportief directeur van AS Roma is hier niet zomaar. Hij zou Razvan Marin en Gojko Cimirot van Standard komen scouten.

Bij AS Roma koos met tijdens de zomer voor een verjonging. Spelers als Radja Nainggolan en Kevin Strootman mochten gaan. Onder meer Ante Coric en Justin Kluivert werden aangetrokken. Roma blijft inzetten op talenten. Marin (22) zou perfect in dat plaatje passen. Cimirot is met zijn 25 lentes al wat ouder.


Marin werd onlangs uitgeroepen tot Roemeens Speler van het Jaar. Dat er interesse in zijn persoon komt, is dus niet vreemd te noemen. Zelf sprak hij daarna niet over een vertrek in Luik, maar wel over de komst van zijn landgoot Ianis Hagi.

Press Availability
Michael R. Pompeo
Secretary of State
Brussels, Belgium
December 4, 2018


SECRETARY POMPEO: Good evening, everyone. I want to begin this evening by expressing my condolences to the Bush family on the passing of a great man, President George H. W. Bush. He embodied literally the best of America in his devotion to public service and his ardent patriotism. My wife Susan and I mourn with President Trump and all of our fellow Americans as we celebrate his incredible life. Tomorrow I will join the President and my fellow cabinet members in honoring him during America’s national day of mourning.

President Bush, during his entire lifetime, was a relentless defender of transatlantic security. Today, we strive to emulate his example by asserting powerful American leadership on behalf of our people and our allies. When the INF Treaty was inked in 1987, it represented a good-faith effort between two rivals to de-escalate the threat of nuclear war. President Reagan described it as the realization of “an impossible vision,” and Mikhail Gorbachev said it had “universal significance for mankind.”

But whatever successes this treaty helped produce, today we must confront Russian cheating on its arms control obligations. As I told my fellow ministers earlier today, our nations have a choice. We either bury our head in the sand or we take common-sense action in response to Russia’s flagrant disregard for the express terms of the INF Treaty.

It’s worth noting that Russia’s violations didn’t happen overnight. Russia’s been flight-testing the SSC-8 cruise missile since the mid-2000s. They’ve been testing it in excess of ranges that the treaty permits. All the tests of the SSC-8 have originated from a Kapustin Yar site from both a fixed and mobile launcher. Its range makes it a direct menace to Europe.

In 2017, General Selva of the Joint Chiefs of Staff told Congress that Russia had deployed its missile, and I quote, “in order to pose a threat to NATO and to facilities within the NATO area of responsibility,” end of quote. Russia continues to press forward, and as of late 2018 has filled multiple battalions of the SSC-8 missiles.

Throughout all of this, the United States has remained in scrupulous compliance with the treaty. In spite of Russia’s violations, we have exercised the utmost patience and effort in working to convince Russia to adhere to its terms. On at least 30 occasions since 2013, extending to the highest levels of leadership, we have raised Russia’s noncompliance and stressed that a failure to return to compliance would have consequences.

Russia’s reply has been consistent: deny any wrongdoing, demand more information, and issue baseless counter-accusations. For more than four years, Moscow has pretended that it didn’t know what missile or test the United States was even talking about, even when we provided extensive information about the missile’s characteristics and testing history. It was not until we chose to publicize the Russian name of the missile in November of 2017 that Russia finally acknowledged its existence. Then Russia changed its cover story from the missile that does not exist to the missile that exists but is treaty-compliant.

These violations of the INF Treaty cannot be viewed in isolation from the larger pattern of Russian lawlessness on the world stage. The list of Russia’s infamous acts is long: Georgia, Ukraine, Syria, election meddling, Skripal, and now the Kerch Strait, to name just a few.

In light of these facts, the United States today declares it has found Russia in material breach of the treaty and will suspend our obligations as a remedy effective in 60 days unless Russia returns to full and verifiable compliance.

We’re taking these steps for several reasons. First, Russia’s actions gravely undermine American national security and that of our allies and partners. It makes no sense for the United States to remain in a treaty that constrains our ability to respond to Russia’s violations. Russia has reversed the trajectory of diminishing nuclear risk in Europe, where America has tens of thousands of troops and where millions more American civilians are living and working. These Americans live and work alongside many more millions of Europeans who are put in danger by Russian missile systems.

Second, while Russia is responsible for the demise of the treaty, many other states – including China, North Korea, and Iran – are not parties to the INF Treaty. This leaves them free to build all the intermediate range missiles that they would like. There is no reason the United States should continue to cede this crucial military advantage to revisionist powers like China, in particular when these weapons are being used to threaten and coerce the United States and its allies in Asia.

If you ask the question why the treaty wasn’t enlarged to include more nations, including China, keep in mind that it has been tried three times without any success already, and it has failed each time.

Third, inertia will not drive policy in the Trump administration. As President Trump has made clear and as I spoke about this morning, the United States will not support international agreements that undermine our security, our interests, or our values.

Finally, and I want to be clear about this, America is upholding the rule of law. When we set forth our commitments, we agree to be bound by them. We expect the same of our treaty counterparts everywhere, and we will hold them accountable when their words prove untrustworthy. If we do not, we’ll get cheated by other nations, expose Americans to greater risk, and squander our credibility.

Earlier today, I spoke on America’s enduring leadership role in the international order and I reiterate that powerful American leadership means never abandoning our responsibility to protect our security and our nation’s sovereignty. I’ve stated our position in no uncertain terms. The United States remains hopeful that our relationship with Russia can get better, can get on better footing.

With that being said, the burden falls on Russia to make the necessary changes. Only they can save this treaty. If Russia admits its violations and fully and verifiably comes back into compliance we will, of course, welcome that course of action. But Russia and Russia only can take this step.

We appreciate NATO’s strong support for the United States decision as expressed in this statement released today. The United States and our NATO allies stand vigilant that Russia’s lawless conduct will not be tolerated in the realm of arms control or anywhere else.

Thank you.

MS NAUERT: We have time for several questions. The first one goes to Teri Schultz from Deutsche Welle. Teri.

QUESTION: Hi. Thank you. Secretary Pompeo, I’m here.

SECRETARY POMPEO: Got you.

QUESTION: What does this mean concretely? What will the next steps be? Are you just waiting the 60 days and hoping that Europe can help pull Russia back into compliance? What exactly – how exactly will this play out now? And then does the six months start in 60 days? Just a few more details on that. Thank you.

SECRETARY POMPEO: You bet. So as I said in my remarks, we would welcome a Russian change of heart, a change in direction, the destruction of their program and their follow-on continuance of the terms of the treaty. And so over the next 60 days they have every chance to do so. And we would welcome that.

I will tell you, our European partners appreciate that extra time. We work closely with them. They asked for an extended period, and we, in our efforts to make sure that we had complete unity – and I will tell you, as you speak to the other 28 ministers who are here today, there is complete unity around this – we believe this is the right outcome. The six-month period will begin to run 60 days from now. During the 60 days, we will still not test or produce or deploy any systems, and we’ll see what happens during this 60-day period.

We’ve talked to the Russians a great deal. We’re hopeful they’ll change course, but there’s been no indication to date that they have any intention of doing so.

MS NAUERT: Jessica Donati from Wall Street Journal.

QUESTION: Yeah. Thank you. Beyond withdrawing from the – or suspending your membership of the INF Treaty, what other steps can you do to help Ukraine in what it’s suffering at the hands of Russia?

SECRETARY POMPEO: So there was lots of discussion about that today. I’ll leave to a couple of others to talk about the conversations. But two things were very clear from the time that we spent with the Ukrainian foreign minister as a group, is that there is complete unanimity that the Russian action was lawless and unacceptable and deterrents must be restored, and that that is a collective commitment of Europe and the world to deny Russia the capacity to continue to violate basic international law norms. We hope that the Russians will return the sailors that they’re holding today, just immediately. And we will collectively develop a set of responses that demonstrate to Russia that this behavior is simply unacceptable.

MS NAUERT: Emerald Robinson from One America News.

QUESTION: Thank you, Mr. Secretary. You talked about, yes, the commitments with treaties in regards to the United States and its allies. But you also talked about international institutions and gave America’s viewpoint on that. You called out specifically the IMF and the World Bank and the UN. How do you think so many large international institutions can be reformed today? Is it a question of new leadership?

SECRETARY POMPEO: Every institution needs to be evaluated consistently, right. That doesn’t – multilateral, international organizations are no different. These organizations have now been around for an extended period of time, and each of them is worthy of full review. Do they still – are they still fit for purpose? Do they still serve their intended means? That’s what I spoke about this morning.

President Trump believes that if we exert American leadership and American national sovereignty and we evaluate these institutions against the objective of creating prosperity and peace around the world, that each of them is ripe for some piece of reform. And we’ll look at the parts that are working as I – and I described several institutions’ functions that are working. We’ll keep those. We’ll enhance those. We’ll want to be part of those.

But if it’s broken and it’s not delivering for America and for the world then we ought not rest on our laurels and think, “boy, that’s good,” just because it’s multilateral. That notion that the mere nature of something being multilateral is not in and of itself a good. The things that are good are the things that flow, the things that follow from the work that nation-states do as part of those multilateral organizations, and the United States is intent on being a leader to make sure each of those institutions that you mentioned is delivering.

MS NAUERT: Last question, Guy Taylor from Washington Times.

QUESTION: Thank you, Mr. Secretary. Back to the INF Treaty just for a second. You mentioned the prospect of the U.S. developing and deploying systems that would otherwise be in violation of the treaty. From a strategic perspective, is that kind of deployment something that the administration, the Trump administration, is really now preparing to do? And can you speak perhaps to European concerns about the prospect of the deployment of midrange nuclear weapons across Western Europe, for instance, that have been banned by this treaty for so long?

SECRETARY POMPEO: So I can say two things about that today. European nations can rest assured that as we prepare how we will all protect and create stability in Europe and around the world from the threat of intermediate nuclear range missiles, and those in particular from Russia, that we will be working closely with our European allies and other allies throughout the world who are also threatened by these missile systems. And so it won’t come to a surprise anyone what the United States is thinking, how we’re approaching it, and we will look for their assistance, their help, their inputs in how to develop a security architecture – an architecture that actually delivers.

I mean, we – just to be clear, we had a party – a treaty that had two parties, only one of which was compliant. That’s not an agreement. That’s just self-restraint, and it strategically no longer made sense to remain in that position and we’ll develop our course forward. I don’t want to say much about what the United States policy is going to be because there are lots of folks still to talk to. And I will also leave to the Department of Defense the nature and work that they’re doing on systems that will ultimately potentially be noncompliant.

MS NAUERT: Okay, thank you very much everyone. Thank you.

Special Briefing
Brian Hook
Senior Policy Advisor to the Secretary of State and Special Representative for Iran 
Brussels, Belgium
December 4, 2018


MR HOOK: (In progress.) We discussed Iran’s missile testing, Iran’s missile proliferation, and I encouraged the European Union to make progress on missile proliferation, and there’s many different ways you can do that. So we had a very good discussion about that. It’s – even if one stipulates that Iran is in compliance with the deal, one --

QUESTION: Do you stipulate that, by the way?

MR HOOK: There’s nothing to suggest they’re not in compliance.

QUESTION: Okay.

MR HOOK: The IAEA has been – so even if you stipulate that Iran is in compliance with the deal, that should not be – the deal should not be an obstacle to addressing missile testing and proliferation by the Iranian regime. It’s important that we not – the Iran nuclear deal is a modest and temporary nonproliferation plan of action. That can’t come at the expense of missile proliferation or other threats to peace and security. So it’s important that we address these threats comprehensively and not get sort of sidetracked by the Iran nuclear deal.

Iran threatened to close the Strait of Hormuz again. The Islamic Republic of Iran does not control the Strait of Hormuz. The strait is an international waterway. The United States will continue to work with our partners to ensure frequent navigation and the free flow of commerce in international waterways.

There we are. We’re also very troubled – very troubled – by the discovery of Lebanese Hizballah tunnels inside of Israel’s territory. This is another example of Iran’s revolutionary foreign policy that is expansionist and destabilizing for the Middle East, when Iranian-backed Hizballah is digging tunnels into another country beneath their borders. So we condemn this activity and support Israel in its military operations to address these tunnels.

That’s it.

QUESTION: You – just on that last thing. You were in the meeting last night with the prime minister?

MR HOOK: No, it was a one-on-one meeting.

QUESTION: Oh, okay. Well, do you know anything about the meeting?

MR HOOK: Did we put out a statement on --

MODERATOR: We put out a readout.

QUESTION: Yeah, but it wasn’t very specific.

QUESTION: Nope.

QUESTION: Very interestingly. Highly coincidental that within hours of the meeting they launched this operation.

MODERATOR: You can ask the Secretary about that this evening.

MR HOOK: Yeah.

QUESTION: Okay.

MR HOOK: You should ask.

QUESTION: All right. Then can I ask you about the – on the Euros and missiles? So did they accept – are they on board with the premise that even though they’re still in the deal and they’re still giving sanctions relief, that they will go after missiles because they’re not included in the deal?

MR HOOK: I would say --

QUESTION: Yeah, you pivoted from saying “we discussed” to suddenly saying “we have to address” blah blah blah.

MR HOOK: Well, as you – since many of you covered the supplemental negotiations that we worked on, we discussed Iran’s missile testing and proliferation extensively. And we had reached agreement in the supplemental negotiations to include intercontinental ballistic missiles. We were not able to agree on the sunset clauses, but we had full agreement on missiles.

For 12 years – as I said yesterday on the plane, for 12 years the Security Council has said that Iran should – in various formulations – that Iran needs to stop testing and proliferating ballistic missiles. This is a policy of the – this is a global consensus. I don’t hear anyone in the world arguing that Iran should continue testing and proliferating ballistic missiles.

QUESTION: Well, Iran.

MR HOOK: (Laughter.) Great point.

QUESTION: You do hear that, right? Or are you just --

MR HOOK: No, we’ve heard that. Their actions speak louder than words. So there is a clear global consensus that Iran needs to stop, and Iran continues to defy the UN Security Council and defy the international community on this. And I think that there is, and as Iran – Iran has not diminished its missiles tests during the implementation of the Iran nuclear deal, and I think the world is increasingly recognizing this.

QUESTION: Right. Okay. I just --

MR HOOK: So it’s easier to address the threat because Iran continues to defy --

QUESTION: Let me – I’ll stop at this – but let me just – you said that the deal should not be an obstacle to dealing with missiles.

MR HOOK: Correct.

QUESTION: But do the Europeans see it that way, too? I mean, or are they concerned that if they impose sanctions on something or someone for missiles who are covered under the relief from the deal, that that would be a violation on their part?

MR HOOK: I would put it this way, that the Iran nuclear deal focuses on one threat that Iran presents to international peace and security, the nuclear piece. The theory of the case is that you can’t take on too much, so you can only focus on one threat to get a deal done. The people that negotiated the deal never once said that this will prevent nations from addressing the nonnuclear threats.

QUESTION: No, I know. That was a selling point for it.

MR HOOK: That’s a selling point. Since Iran has expanded its threats to peace and security in every category during the implementation of the Iran nuclear deal, it is incumbent upon all nations – especially those that still support the deal – to not ignore the escalating threats. And no threat is more escalatory in recent months than the missile proliferation – year – months and years.

QUESTION: Brian, they blame you, basically – the Europeans – because by getting out – by ignoring the deal, by getting out of the deal, by breaking the deal that the United States signed --

MR HOOK: There were no signatures.

QUESTION: Well, the United States agreed to --

MR HOOK: In the last administration.

QUESTION: In the last administration.

MR HOOK: It was a political commitment, which the Obama administration, in a letter to Congress – that is a political commitment. It’s not a treaty; it’s not legally binding.

QUESTION: By getting out of the deal that the United States agreed to --

MR HOOK: That’s fair. Well, that President Obama agreed to --

QUESTION: That President Obama agreed to on behalf of the United States.

QUESTION: He was elected president.

MR HOOK: Yes, I know that, right. It’s not a treaty, though, right. Keep going.

QUESTION: -- that --

MR HOOK: This is a long wind up.

QUESTION: Well, I didn’t mean it to be.

QUESTION: And you’ll hit it out of the park, I’m sure.

QUESTION: That you have imposed on Iran penalties, obviously, that were not agreed to under the deal, and thus the Europeans do not see it as possible or in their interests or in the interests of surviving the deal to impose more penalties outside of the deal for such things as ballistic missiles. Yes, they were willing to do it, as long as you stayed in the deal. That was the point of the supplemental agreement. By getting out of the deal, you have prevented the world from really addressing Iran’s ballistic missile program. What – that’s their point of view. How do you respond to that? This is basically your fault.

MR HOOK: Yeah, during the – from the time the JCPOA – during its negotiation and implementation, up until the time the President left the deal in May, Iran did not diminish its missile testing. And during that same period, no nation – the EU and other parties to the deal did not take action against Iran’s missile program. So the neglect of this threat predates the President leaving the Iran deal.

Now that we are out of the deal, we have a – much more freedom to use the diplomatic tools at our disposal to address the entire range of Iran’s threats. We think that is the correct posture. We have more freedom to address their threats, and it puts us in a position of leverage to try to get an even better deal.

Yeah.

QUESTION: Brian, yesterday you said we would like to see the European Union move sanctions that target Iran’s missile program. Did you, in your meetings today, see any indication that the EU was any closer than it was yesterday to moving on sanctions that target Iran’s missile program?

MR HOOK: I think there is a growing appreciation among European nations, given Iran’s expanding missile program and the bomb plot in Paris, Denmark, the assassination plot, the smuggling of heroin through Italy – that’s just in recent sort of memory. That doesn’t also account for Iran giving Assad billions, which then of course is one of the factors that creates a refugee crisis that deeply affects Europe. So I think the Europeans increasingly understand that it is possible to address these threats that exist outside of the nuclear deal. The nuclear deal, from its inception in the last administration, was never meant to be an obstacle to address any other threat that Iran presents to peace and security.

QUESTION: Yes, but did you see any indication in your meetings today --

MR HOOK: We are making progress, yeah. We’re making progress.

Yeah.

QUESTION: Okay. So at UNGA in New York, the President told me – when I asked him how progress was being made in regards to the Europeans on the Iran nuclear deal – he suggested that we as America and our safety and structure didn’t even rely on Europeans, per se, to cripple Iran’s economy. And we are seeing it have a big effect.

MR HOOK: Yeah.

QUESTION: So in saying that, how important is it really to get our European allies to join us in this effort?

MR HOOK: Given the role of the United States in the global financial system, it gives us enormous diplomatic leverage to address threats to peace and security. We are doing that in the context of the Iranian regime, and we have been very pleased with the success we have had since May to impose economic costs on Iran for being an outlaw regime. We are very well positioned to deepen Iran’s economic isolation until Iran decides to change its behavior and starts behaving like a normal country and not like a revolutionary regime. As Kissinger said, Iran needs to decide whether it’s a cause or a country.

Yeah.

QUESTION: I wanted to go back to what you mentioned at the top about sanctions. Can you get into a little bit more about the nature of the conversations and pushback from Europeans who don’t really want to go along with a lot of these sanctions? And you did the oil waivers, that kind of thing. I’m just kind of curious to get a sense of where their heads are at in terms of following the U.S.

MR HOOK: Following the U.S. on?

QUESTION: On sanctions. On the reimposition that --

MR HOOK: Oh. Well, what we found is for us, for our sanctions, they affect corporations. And we have seen only full compliance by European corporations who are connected to the international financial system. And we just don’t see any daylight between the United States and European companies.

QUESTION: However, there is with the governments.

MR HOOK: The governments who are still in the deal, yes, we have a disagreement over the efficacy of the Iran nuclear deal, and we didn’t think – we think it’s a deficient deal that needs to be replaced by a new and better deal. While we are out of the deal, it allows us to do everything we can to starve the militias that Iran funds and to start choking its revenues for money to Assad, money to Hizballah, Hamas, the Houthis, cyberattacks, threats to close the Strait of Hormuz, all that.

QUESTION: At the top, you said that during – you said that during a supplemental agreement, you had full agreement on – supplemental talks, you had full agreement on ballistic missiles.

MR HOOK: To include ICBMs.

QUESTION: To --

MR HOOK: Yeah. I mean, ICBMs needed to be included in the – because ICBMs and a nuclear program always walk arm in arm. They’re never separate.

QUESTION: So was there an agreement on how to counteract the Iranian missile program in the spring? Did you have that piece in place and are the Europeans now declining to pursue that in this context?

MR HOOK: No. I would separate these things. I – just in the context of negotiating, seeking a supplemental agreement to address the three deficiencies that the President identified around its – we need a stronger inspections regime, we need ICBMs, and we need to have the elimination of the sunset clauses. Those are the three areas of focus. The President also asked for – it would be helpful if we could address these other areas around regional aggression and the other threats, which we talked about. We would spend half the day talking about the nuclear piece and the other half of the day talking about the non-nuclear threats. And this is what I’ve said for a long time: We share the same threat assessment. There is a difference of opinion about the Iran nuclear deal. In the context of just trying to address the deficiency of the ICBMs, we were able to get agreement that ICBMs need to be a part of it, but then we couldn’t get agreement on sunsets and so we’re out of the deal.

QUESTION: But does that mean – forgive me if I’m being dense here – does that mean that there’s a – you have – you’ve had agreement on two of these three areas in May. Was there --

MR HOOK: Yeah, I think as I’ve said --

QUESTION: Was there – is it on the shelf? It’s not being implemented now, even though you’d subsequently agreed on it earlier? (Inaudible.)

MR HOOK: No, it’s separate. No, it’s not – it’s not, it’s – I would separate what we’re talking about now with the supplemental agreement, and there’s a lot that’s – look, that ended in May. We have since had a number of developments since May on Iran’s missile program. On Thursday, when I was at Bolling and unveiling the new missiles that we found, the missile test on Saturday, and then the other incidents that have happened in Europe have created a new climate, I think, for us to make more progress on the non-nuclear issues.

QUESTION: Does that --

MR HOOK: Jessica? What?

QUESTION: I have a question on – so you mentioned that you – there are three main areas. Is this – when you announced you were leaving the deal in May, there were 12 concessions, which included regional interference. Have you dropped that?

MR HOOK: The what? The --

QUESTION: There were 12 – Pompeo --

QUESTION: There were 12.

MR HOOK: Yeah, the 12, yeah.

QUESTION: (Off-mike.)

QUESTION: That included not --

QUESTION: But now you’re talking about three.

QUESTION: -- interfering anymore in this.

QUESTION: Twelve and three.

QUESTION: And now you say that there are just three.

MR HOOK: No, no, no. You’ve got to separate the supplemental agreement from what everything that came after. I’m not – it’s – after the President left the deal, it put us in a position to announce a new Iran strategy. That includes no enrichment, a whole range of things. So those 12 is the comprehensive strategy that you need to apply in the case of Iran.

QUESTION: Would the U.S. be willing to enter into a new deal if it didn’t include regional interference?

MR HOOK: I’m not going to get into those hypotheticals.

QUESTION: Can I just ask you --

MR HOOK: We are seeking a comprehensive deal that addresses nukes, missiles, terrorism, everything in the Secretary’s 12 areas. When the prior – you have to remember, the President outlined the three areas well prior to – six months prior – more than six months prior to when Secretary Pompeo gave his speech.

QUESTION: You --

MS NAUERT: We’re going to have to wrap this up. Brian’s got another engagement, so --

QUESTION: You’ve correctly identified that ICBMs have been agreed to.

MR HOOK: Well, roughly. I mean, when I say agreed to, we have made – yeah.

QUESTION: Yeah, but look, so the Europeans were notoriously resistant on short and medium-range, but you do not seem to be – you seem to be pushing that as well. So in – are you saying that – when you say you think you’re making progress, are the Europeans willing to consider less than ICBM range missiles?

MR HOOK: I’m not going to get into the specifics of it, but we did have a medium – we had a couple of days ago the launch of a medium-range ballistic missile.

QUESTION: I know, but --

MR HOOK: And so I --

QUESTION: -- the Europeans, even before when you’re talking about when you had an agreement, weren’t agreeing on medium.

QUESTION: That’s true.

MR HOOK: I’m not going to get into the specifics of where we are now.

QUESTION: Can I quickly just ask you something --

MS NAUERT: You’re going to have to – wait, guys.

QUESTION: Wait, Michael -- Michael hasn’t asked –

QUESTION: (Off-mike.)

MS NAUERT: You’re going to have to be the last one, because Brian’s --

QUESTION: (Off-mike.)

QUESTION: Michael Birnbaum from The Washington Post in Brussels.

MS NAUERT: Brian’s already an hour – five minutes late (inaudible).

QUESTION: That’s all right, let me ask one more.

QUESTION: (Off-mike.)

MS NAUERT: Yeah, go ahead.

QUESTION: He hasn’t had a question. He hasn’t had one.

QUESTION: But it’s sort of outsider’s question, because I live here in Brussels. I spend all my time talking to European officials, not American ones. And there’s so much energy here that’s given in to thinking about SPV and thinking about ways to preserve the JCPOA, but basically to undermine the American attempt to blow up the deal. How are you making progress? Like, in what areas are you making progress when so much bandwidth here in Brussels and in Europe is devoted to undoing what the Trump administration has done? I’m trying to sort of square the circle a little bit. How do you have them try to undermine your decisions on the one hand and work with them on the other?

MR HOOK: I’m not sure what you’re – can you give me that question again? I’m not sure – you’re saying that --

QUESTION: Well, it seems like most --

MR HOOK: They don’t have enough bandwidth to do both at the same time?

QUESTION: It seems like most of their Iran focus is devoted to preserving the JCPOA, undermining your sort of measures on Iran. I’m just wondering how you can make progress on the one hand in pushing on all of these sort of supplemental issues while their --

MR HOOK: Because we --

QUESTION: -- main energetic focus seems to be on preserving the JCPOA.

MR HOOK: Because you can do both things at the same time. We share the same threat assessment. They’re still in the deal and so they have equities in the deal that they are managing. We don’t have those equities anymore. We do at the same time share the same threat assessment about Iran’s missile proliferation.

MS NAUERT: Okay.

MR HOOK: Got to get going?

MS NAUERT: Right, bye. Thanks, Brian.

MR HOOK: Okay, thank you, bye.

          Press Releases: Senior State Department Official Previewing Secretary Pompeo's Trip to Brussels, Belgium      Cache   Translate Page      
Special Briefing
On Plane en route to Brussels, Belgium
December 3, 2018


SENIOR STATE DEPARTMENT OFFICIAL: I’m glad to have you guys along. I’m happy to talk about pretty much anything you want to talk about, and [Moderator], jump in, but I thought I’d give you a few top lines on why the trip is important, some of the meetings that are going to occur, and then you guys can jump in with all of your questions.

So this is the Secretary’s third trip to NATO since he became Secretary of State. I think most of you know he came over the day he was confirmed. He got on the plane. A ministerial, and then he came back for a NATO summit. This is his third trip in the last however many months, eight months or so since he became Secretary. We see this as an opportunity first and foremost to reinforce U.S. commitment to NATO allies, the alliance, Article 5, U.S. commitment to Article 5 ironclad; also engage with very close allies on areas that we agree on, some areas we disagree on, but hoping to in particular talk with some of our major allies about some of the most important international security issues that we’re tracking today.

First and foremost, I would say you can expect to see a follow-up on commitments that were made at the 2018 NATO summit, so the July summit, and I would highlight a few. We continue to press allies on following through with their Wales commitments: 2 percent of GDP on defense, 20 percent of defense budgets on major equipment. I would highlight allied Portugal, which recently came forward with a credible plan, 2 percent spending. Also Slovakia just put through major spending increases for the defense budget. Across the alliance, we have seen an historic increase in defense spending since January of 2017.

I would also highlight by way of follow-up on the summit the updated counterterrorism action plan. This is a major set of contributions from the NATO alliance. Really, it’s the first time in NATO’s history that NATO has gotten deeply into the business of counterterrorism but also developed a strategy and an agenda for the South, the Mediterranean littoral. At this ministerial, we’re going to go through a report on NATO’s southern dimension but also update the 2017 counterterrorism plan with a heavy emphasis on intelligence sharing.

And we’ll also be, by way of follow-up, going through Secretary General Stoltenberg’s heroic efforts at a functional review, so bringing the NATO civilian command structure up to speed with the changes and evolutions that we’ve had in a strategic setting but also changes in the military command structure.

The second big thing I would highlight is the discussion about the INF treaty. I’m sure all of you have been following this very closely. We intend to engage our allies in a close discussion over the next day and a half on INF. We’ve been in discussions with – for several days now with European allies on INF.

As all of you know who follow this, this is not a new problem. The U.S. calling out Russia on noncompliance is not a new phenomenon. We’ve been pressing the Russian Federation for five years now in public about the so-called screwdriver SSC-8 missile which is not INF-compliant. We will be at this ministerial building on the very strong language that came out in the summer NATO declaration and working with allies to chart a joint way forward in how we tackle the problem of Russian noncompliance with INF, and I’m happy to talk more about that in the Q&A.

And then finally, we’ll have several sessions of the NATO Atlantic – of the North Atlantic Commission, sessions on Ukraine and Georgia. In that session, we plan to build on recent U.S. statements pressing Russian leadership to release the detained crew members and ships that were taken into custody in the recent Kerch incident. We are calling on European allies to show leadership in tackling a problem that’s in Europe’s own backyard. The President and Secretary have been crystal-clear in where we stand on the matter of the Kerch incident, Ukrainian – Russian aggression against Ukraine. This administration has provided a lot of things that the previous administration did not want to provide, but we plan in this ministerial to work with allies charting a way forward on how we make progress on these crew members and ships.

We also have a session of the NAC meeting on Resolute Support Mission. The goal is to work with our allies to endorse Ambassador Khalilzad’s reconciliation efforts. We had recent elections in Afghanistan and also a donors meetings in Geneva. We want to build on the momentum from those events. Ambassador Hutchison and I will be attending the RSM session. At the last NATO summit, the allies agreed to extend the financial support through 2024 for Afghanistan’s security forces. We intend to continue to build on that as well.

I think most of you know that the Secretary is giving a major speech while he is in Brussels. I can provide you a little bit of a preview on that speech. I don’t want to get too far ahead of him. It’s a great speech. I’ve read it. This will happen at the German Marshall Fund. The symbolism was deliberate. It was important to us to evoke the memory of George C. Marshall, one of the Secretary’s predecessors who helped to create the foundation for the Atlantic alliance. The Bretton Woods system, the foundation for the international order as we know it, most of the major international institutions in the world today grew out of that immediate post World War II moment.

I think you can expect to see the Secretary walk you through a big-picture assessment of how he, how this administration, views the strategic reality in the world: rising revisionist authoritarian powers, number one; and number two, how we view international institutions and the growing gap between the international institutional order on one hand and the scale of the type of strategic challenges that we face on the other. So you can expect to see him share this administration’s vision for America’s place in the world.

So that’s a quick preview. Happy to answer any questions. If there’s anything I overlooked, let me know.

MODERATOR: Remember this is on background to a senior State Department official. Go ahead, let’s get a question.

QUESTION: Can I ask, do you support Ukraine’s call to (inaudible) which you said (inaudible) to the Sea of Azov?

SENIOR STATE DEPARTMENT OFFICIAL: I don’t want to get ahead of process. We support Ukraine wholeheartedly in its defense of national sovereignty and territorial integrity, and I think our actions have been very clear in that regard. We’re looking at a lot of measures both on the U.S. side, coordination with allies, and you’ll be seeing more in the days ahead of how we and our allies will jointly message and where appropriate take action. We really want to see European allies do more. The United States I think has been – I think the administration has been forceful and clear up to an including providing a lot of lethal aid to Ukrainians. We want to see European allies take greater responsibility for a security problem that’s just 200 miles from Germany’s border, and we’ll be right there with them every step of the way.

QUESTION: And is this the forum for official (inaudible) six months on INF? There was a lot of speculation in Brussels last week that that’s what the speech was going to be used for, but then Stoltenberg said today that no, it’s still not time yet.

SENIOR STATE DEPARTMENT OFFICIAL: Look, I don’t want to get ahead of process. I want to stay focused on our goal right now, which is to be in sync with allies. We want to keep the burden squarely where it belongs – the onus, and that is on Russia for noncompliance. We are determined to stay in sync with our allies in our response to this problem. So the discussions over the next day will be about that, and you can expect to see a decision in due course.

QUESTION: In what?

SENIOR STATE DEPARTMENT OFFICIAL: In due course.

QUESTION: Okay. The speech is at 11:00 (inaudible) so --

SENIOR STATE DEPARTMENT OFFICIAL: The Secretary’s speech?

QUESTION: Yeah.

SENIOR STATE DEPARTMENT OFFICIAL: Yeah. I’ll let the Secretary’s speech speak for itself. As I said, it’s big-picture. It’s looking at America’s role in the world. On INF I don’t want to – I don’t want to get ahead of ourselves here. We really want to roll up our sleeves and work with our allies on a joint position, and that’s what we’re focused on right now.

QUESTION: Follow-up on Nike’s question. Can you give any more specifics on what you’ll be asking for from Europe as far as Ukraine?

SENIOR STATE DEPARTMENT OFFICIAL: As far as Ukraine is concerned. So we have some ideas in the United States. I think we’ve messaged very clearly that it’s unacceptable that Russia took this latest step, this act of aggression. We’ve coordinated very closely over the last several days with European allies both in the NATO format and in the EU format, and right now we’re focused on sizing an allied alliance-wide response, having the right size response to what happened at the Kerch. There is a humanitarian dimension to this with the sailors involved. There is an international legal dimension to this with freedom of navigation. And we want our allies to show leadership. It’s a problem a lot closer to home for them than it is to us. There’s a lot of things that the United States has done and will continue to do for the Ukrainians, but we want to make sure that we come out of this week with a unified position where we’re working with allies to have a holistic response.

QUESTION: As you look at the risk metrics there in the Sea of Azov, what’s the likelihood or – that you see of Russia trying to repeat in Mariupol some of the operations they had at Donbas?

SENIOR STATE DEPARTMENT OFFICIAL: I don’t want to speculate on the military situation. I think the facts on the ground are very clear as they stand right now. Russian forces and Russian-backed so-called separatists are waging daily aggression in violations of ceasefire. It’s one of the things that we will be addressing at OSCE in a couple of days. We’re very watchful. The situation on the ground there is very dangerous. Ambassador Volker is very engaged, as you know, with the Russians, trying to find a clear way – a peaceful way forward. But I think Azov marked – I should say, it was on the Black Sea side – let’s say the Kerch Strait act of aggression marked an unmistakable escalation on the part of the Russians, because it was the first time that they were openly using their own forces and being very unapologetic about it.

QUESTION: [Senior State Department Official], there’s a sense in Europe that you’re backing out of the INF because of concerns about China, not so much about Europe, and that the Europeans feel that you are – that that policy shows that American attention is increasingly diverted from Europe to China. What’s your response to that?

SENIOR STATE DEPARTMENT OFFICIAL: Well, look, I think if you read the Nuclear Posture Review, it was crystal-clear. Number one, we’re committed to arms control, but number two, we have growing concerns about the actions of a lot of American rivals. There’s Russia, there’s China, there’s Iran. I’m not sure it’s helpful to disaggregate those when we’re talking about the future of INF, because the central problem is that Russia – which is a party to INF – is in flagrant noncompliance. We’re talking about five years of repeated U.S. efforts. We’ve tried on 30 different occasions at very high levels to share with the Russians the information that we have about their systems, to call them into – back into compliance. We’ve also shared a lot of intelligence with European allies.

I think at this point we have been so engaged with European allies, the one thing I don’t question is whether the allies understand where we’re coming from. They’ve seen the material. If you saw the NATO declaration, I think it’s crystal-clear. Our central focus is Russia. And there is a China problem; a big portion of the Chinese ballistic arsenal is not in compliance with INF. But I would not say from a U.S. perspective we look at INF to look at the way forward. I wouldn’t look at that and say the United States has made a determination on the basis of what Russia has done to do X, Y, or Z. Right now our focus is on sharing what we have with allies, making sure as I said a minute ago that we’re on the same page with a clear way forward. And once we’ve had those conversations with allies, we’ll make a decision and communicate those decisions in concert with our allies.

MODERATOR: Just a couple questions left.

QUESTION: One more, do one more. This is going to be the 70th anniversary of NATO coming up in – it’ll be the first major anniversary of NATO where there is not going to be a leaders summit. Europeans are saying that they’re not going to have a leaders summit because they don’t want Trump to be part of such a big summit because the last summit with Trump was such a disaster. What’s your response to that?

SENIOR STATE DEPARTMENT OFFICIAL: So we take the – as the Secretary has said on more than one occasion, we take the NATO alliance seriously and the 70th anniversary very seriously. We’ve been looking very closely with allies at some plans for next year. I don’t think we’re at a stage where we’re sharing those publicly, but we take it seriously. You’ll learn more in due course, but it’s – we are cognizant of the symbolic value of next year, and you’ll hear more about that in the days to come.

QUESTION: Can you talk about the agenda for tonight’s meeting with Netanyahu?

MODERATOR: [Senior State Department Official] handles EUR, so not NEA issues. There’ll be something more on that later. But we can confirm that the Secretary’s meeting with the prime minister.

QUESTION: So you can’t speak to the priorities of the pull-aside with the Libyan prime minister either?

SENIOR STATE DEPARTMENT OFFICIAL: I’m not deeply involved in that, unfortunately. I follow it closely, but it’s not – I wouldn’t want to step on my NEA colleagues.

MODERATOR: And [Senior State Department Official] will still – even though we’ll be headed back to Washington for President Bush’s funeral, [Senior State Department Official] will still be heading to Milan, where he’ll be doing some of the OSCE meetings that the Secretary had planned.

QUESTION: Can you tell us about the agenda for Italy, what you’re looking to get out of that part of the trip?

SENIOR STATE DEPARTMENT OFFICIAL: For OSCE?

QUESTION: What you’re looking to get out of the Italy portion of the trip.

SENIOR STATE DEPARTMENT OFFICIAL: Right. So OSCE – we want to reaffirm U.S. commitment to the OSCE as a significant platform for security in Europe but also for human rights dialogue in Europe and Eurasia. I think a couple of the agenda items that you will see – number-one agenda item will be Ukraine and Kerch Strait. We are determined to hold Russia accountable for those actions, and OSCE is a great venue for European nations showing leadership. So you’ll see the U.S. focused on SMM, you’ll see us focused on ceasefire violations.

And then secondly, as you know, the United States continues to call on Russia to come back into compliance with a family of treaties and obligations under OSCE – Open Skies, conventional forces in Europe. We’re in the process of trying to work through a modernization of the Vienna document. The Vienna document is the instrument of OSCE. It provides transparency for military exercises. And those will be the two big focal points.

MODERATOR: Okay. [Senior State Department Official] has to get back to the other part of his job.

QUESTION: Thank you.

MODERATOR: Thanks, everybody.

Story of this design: We went to Belgium for a beer biking tour this spring. We started from Brussels, and after picking up the rental bikes, we had a bit of free time for sightseeing in town. There are tons of lovely shops in downtown, one shop's window particularly attracted my attention. The window displayed a big handcrafted boat with several hot air balloon hanging above. It made me fancy a hot air balloon ride. I have never taken a hot air balloon ride. It would be cool, wouldn't it? On the other hand, I don't think I can take it. My legs would be totally soft once the basket left the ground!
I hand printed the basket with a "scarred me" in it, on a gray cotton skirt, and sewed 8 balloons with 6 different fabrics.
This skirt is made of heavy weight cotton jersey. It features fold-over stretchy waistband without zipper, so you can wear it higher than your hips and show your knees or lower on your hips and cover your knees.

          The Saxophone and Jazz      Cache   Translate Page      
© -Steven Cerra, copyright protected; all rights reserved.


Written from the standpoint of the early 1980’s and published in one of the earliest editions of Gene Lees Jazzletter, Mike Zwerin’s concluding statement evolved over the next 30 years with the likes of saxophonists such as Michael Brecker, David Sanborn, and Bob Berg, continuing the liaison between Jazz and other forms of popular music.


Along with drums, electric guitar, bass and keyboards, the saxophone remains an instrument of choice for many 21st century musicians, as well.


“After Adolphe Sax patented his saxophone in 1846, Berlioz wrote: "Its principal merit is the beautiful variety of its accent; deep and calm, passionate, dreamy, melancholic, like an echo of an echo... To my knowledge, no existing musical instrument possesses that curious sonority perched on the limit of silence."


In his autobiography, Father of the Blues, W.C. Handy — who claimed to have been the first to use a saxophone in an American orchestra, in 1909 — describes the instrument as "moaning like a sinner on revival day." For Arnold Bennett, the saxophone was "the embodiment of the spirit of beer."


It combines the speed of woodwinds with the carrying power of brass and at the beginning Sax intended the seven instruments in his new family for marching bands, replacing clarinets, oboes and bassoons. It was an easy instrument to learn. Each village could now have its own band. You can produce a tone in an hour, learn a simple tune in a day. Brass players, faced with embouchure problems, may take weeks to reach the same point; violinists even longer. Fingering is much less demanding than on older reed instruments.


An exhibition on Sax and the saxophone, presented two years ago at the Centre Culturel de la Communaute Francaise de Belgique, offered a fascinating collection of documents, vintage instruments and audio-visual illustrations about the inventor and his invention. The displays included Sax's other inventions: families of brass instruments called saxhorns, saxotrombas and saxtubas; that enormous organ powered and pushed by a steam locomotive for public events; a design for an egg-shaped concert hall; an air purifier for sufferers of respiratory diseases — forty-six patents in all. But he is of course principally remembered for the saxophone family, which in range, homogeneity, speed and subtlety, became the wind instrument equivalent of the violin family, and the musical voice of the Twentieth century.


Adolphe Sax was born in Dinant, Belgium, November 6, 1814, the son of Charles-Joseph Sax, whose factory employing two hundred workers was the largest wind-instrument producer in Europe. At the age of twelve, Adolphe was an apprentice there. He studied flute at the Brussels Royal Conservatory of Music and won a prize playing the revolutionary fingering system devised by Theobald Boehm.


His first patent was for a bass clarinet, redesigned to give it more flexibility and power. He demonstrated his first saxophone in 1840, behind a curtain because it was not yet patented. It caught the attention of the government of King Louis-Philippe of France, which ordered its military officials to equip their bands with Sax's new instruments. There were articles in the newspapers, pro and con. His competitors used their influence and filed lawsuits against him. A battle of the bands — one conducted by Sax, the other using traditional instruments — on the Champ de Mars in Paris resulted in a jury prize for Sax. The press was almost unanimously favorable. He won large contracts.


Sax moved to Paris. The revolution of 1848 installed a republic and ended the monarchy, including its support of Sax, who filed for bankruptcy in 1852. But the Second Empire followed shortly and in 1854 Napoleon III granted Sax a subsidy. As political fortunes changed, he went bankrupt again, continuing his manufacturing business on a smaller scale. By the time of his death in 1894, he was in reduced circumstances and few people would have bet on the future of the saxophone.


The saxophone was never seriously integrated into classical music, aside from isolated works of Berlioz, Stravinsky, Milhaud and some others. Then came jazz. At the beginning, the dominant jazz instruments were trumpets and cornets. Buddy Bolden, King Oliver, Freddie Keppard and Louis Armstrong were kings.


After that the saxophone began to move in. In 1918, a clarinet player named Sidney Bechet was seduced by a soprano saxophone in a London shop window. In his autobiography, Treat It Gentle, Bechet comments, "This was a piece of good luck for me because i wasn't long after this before people started saying they didn't want clarinets in their bands no more."


The saxophone began to be described as "throbbing" or "wailing" as soloists such as Bechet, Adrian Rollini and Johnny Hodges rediscovered it in the '20s. Its melodic capabilities were explored by Ben Webster, Coleman Hawkins, and Lester Young in the '30s. Saxophone sections were the real stars of the dance bands. Charlie Parker played the instrument harder and faster in the '40s. Lee Konitz and Paul Desmond cooled it out in the '50s. Serge Chaloff, Gerry Mulligan and Pepper Adams picked up from Ellingtonian Harry Carney and explored the underexposed baritone sax. Steve Lacy rediscovered the soprano, which had been neglected since Bechet.


Louis Jordan, King Curtis and Junior Walker introduced the saxophone to rhythm and blues as combos gradually replaced big bands in popular music. John Coltrane and Eric Dolphy stretched the physical and emotional range of the saxophone in the '60 while Archie Shepp, Pharoah Sanders, Albert Ayler and Anthony Braxton invented sounds never before heard.


With rock and roll, the instrument went into eclipse along with jazz itself. The electric guitar took over. But to approach the subtlety and variety of saxophones, guitarists had to employ auxiliary equipment such as wah-wah pedals, phasers and flangers. The synthesizer, the first important new instrument invented since the saxophone, served cold 1970’s technopop well, but people need warmth too and the saxophone combines human breath with the speed of a guitar or a keyboard.


In the mid-1970’s Andy McKay with Roxy Music and David Payne with Ian Drury introduced the saxophone to rock. Saxophones became integral to young groups such as the Q-Tips and Dexy's Midnight Runners. Clarence demons' tenor is essential to the power of Bruce Springsteen's material. Phil Woods' alto has been featured prominently on Billy Joel's hits. Steely Dan would not be quite what it is without Wayne Shorter's tenor.


So those among us who never knew it had left will be pleased to learn that the saxophone has been making a comeback. Its continuing contemporary appeal is illustrated by a sixteen-year-old music student who switched from guitar to tenor sax, giving as his reason: "I want to play an instrument I can kiss."                                                -MZ

Belgium's coalition government risks collapse after its far-right NV-A party broke ranks to reject a UN migration pact to be adopted in Morocco next week. It also caused a storm by posting, then removing, images of veiled Muslim women on social media and saying the UN treaty would help Islam flourish in Europe. "You can take pictures like this every day in Brussels," NV-A leader Bart de Wever said.

4 December 2018

KATOWICE, Poland – Action to fight global warming is coming whether world leaders like it or not, school student Greta Thunberg has told the UN climate change summit, accusing them of behaving like irresponsible children.

Thunberg began a solo climate protest by striking from school in Sweden in August 2018. But more than 20,000 students around the world have now joined her. The school strikes have spread to at least 270 towns and cities in countries across the world, including Australia, the United Kingdom, Belgium, the US, and Japan.

“For 25 years countless people have come to the UN climate conferences begging our world leaders to stop emissions and clearly that has not worked as emissions are continuing to rise. So I will not beg the world leaders to care for our future,” she said. “I will instead let them know change is coming whether they like it or not.”

“Since our leaders are behaving like children, we will have to take the responsibility they should have taken long ago,” she said. “We have to understand what the older generation has dealt to us, what mess they have created that we have to clean up and live with. We have to make our voices heard.”

The conference of nearly 200 nations is taking place in Katowice, Poland, and its main task is to turn the vision of tackling global warming agreed in Paris in 2015 into concrete action. On Monday, Sir David Attenborough told the summit that without action “the collapse of our civilisations and the extinction of much of the natural world is on the horizon”.

Thunberg, who had a meeting with the UN secretary general, António Guterres, on Monday, said: “What I hope we achieve at this conference is that we realise that we are facing an existential threat. This is the biggest crisis humanity has ever faced. First we have to realise this and then as fast as possible do something to stop the emissions and try to save what we can save.”

On Tuesday, Guterres said: “Our younger generations will have to help drive, and complete, the work we start today. We need to harness their energy, invention and political power to raise climate ambition.”

Toby Thorpe, a school student from Hobart, Tasmania, who took part in the recent school strikes in Australia and is also at the UN summit, said: “We are in this together. Together we are strong and we will not give up.” Australia’s resources minister, Matt Canavan, had dismissed the school strike – “the best thing you’ll learn about going to a protest is how to join the dole queue” – but the Senate later approved a motion in support of the students.

Report: Real Madrid agree terms with Chelsea star Eden Hazard ahead of 2019 move - originally posted on Sportslens.com

The future of Chelsea superstar Eden Hazard at Stamford Bridge remains shrouded in the clouds as he continues to stall over signing a new deal. The Belgium international has routinely been linked with Real Madrid, and Spanish radio Onda Madrid, via AS, reports that terms have been agreed between both club and player ahead of a transfer next summer. Hazard’s current deal at Chelsea ends in 2020, and the player is taking his time as regards signing an extension the London club so much craves. The Blues value the 27-year-old around £150million, but it remains to be seen if Madrid
