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

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

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

Are you in the know?

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

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

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


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

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

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

What is in the air you are breathing right now?

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

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

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

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

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

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

Tribute
George Kerr, a pioneer in smoke and carbon monoxide alarm manufacturing passed away in his home during the early morning of July 4, 2017. George will always be remembered for his passion to save lives and protect the health of people through low level carbon monoxide detection and alarming. He lived for over 84 years, beginning his career in fire safety in 1953. “We’ll never know how many lives we’re saving, but I know we are saving a few.” George E. Kerr (1933-2017)

U.S. Carbon Monoxide Laws for each state
National Conference of State Legislatures
As of March 2018, a majority of states have enacted statutes regarding carbon monoxide (CO) detectors, and another 11 have promulgated regulations on CO detectors. Alaska requires detectors approved by the state fire marshal be installed in all dwellings. Connecticut requires them in all new construction, as does New Hampshire, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Utah, Vermont, Washington and West Virginia. Florida also requires them in new construction, and in every room with a boiler. Minnesota passed a law requiring detectors in motor boats.

CO Detectors in U.S. Homes
27 states and the District of Columbia require carbon monoxide detectors in private dwellings via state statute: Alaska, California, Colorado, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia (via adoption of the International Residential Code), Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, Washington, West Virginia and Wisconsin. Certain states limit the installation to buildings with fossil-fuel burning devices, others only require the device be installed upon the sale of the property or unit.

Another 11 states require carbon monoxide detectors in private dwellings regulatorily through the adoption of the International Residential Code or via an amendment to their state’s building code: Alabama, Georgia, Idaho, Kentucky, Louisiana, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Virginia, and Wyoming.

CO Detectors in U.S. Schools
California, Connecticut, Illinois, Maine and Maryland require carbon monoxide (CO) detectors in school buildings.

CO Detectors in U.S. Hotels and Motels
Fourteen states require the installation of carbon monoxide detectors in hotels and motels under the statute. - Three of those states (New Jersey, Vermont and Wisconsin) have complementary administrative regulations. - Two states (Kansas and Washington) have requirements through administrative regulations alone.

Fire Department Reminding Residents Of Free Services
OkotoksOnline.com
"We've had quite a few calls for home inspections so it's been really good in the last couple of weeks but the holiday season is coming and we want to try to get into as many homes as we can to ensure that everyone has a festive and happy season. We also want to make sure that all of our residents are using a carbon monoxide detector, that it is working properly, and that it is not out dated."

Carbon monoxide may be an important molecule in migraine and other headaches
SAGE Journals - SAGE Publications
Abstract: Introduction - Carbon monoxide was previously considered to just be a toxic gas. A wealth of recent information has, however, shown that it is also an important endogenously produced signalling molecule involved in multiple biological processes. Endogenously produced carbon monoxide may thus play an important role in nociceptive processing and in regulation of cerebral arterial tone. (More)

Is South Africa's Mpumalanga province the 'world's largest air pollution hotspot'?
Africa Check
The satellite is at a height of 824 kilometres, the team that operates it told Africa Check. Gases in the atmosphere each absorb a specific wavelength of light, so an onboard instrument uses “absorption lines” to determine which gases are present and in what quantity. - Areas with raised concentrations of nitrogen dioxide were identified and the average amount of the gas present over the three-month period worked out. - An international emissions database was then used to pinpoint the specific locations and probable sources of emissions.

Tribute
George Kerr, a pioneer in smoke and carbon monoxide alarm manufacturing passed away in his home during the early morning of July 4, 2017. George will always be remembered for his passion to save lives and protect the health of people through low level carbon monoxide detection and alarming. He lived for over 84 years, beginning his career in fire safety in 1953. “We’ll never know how many lives we’re saving, but I know we are saving a few.” George E. Kerr (1933-2017)

U.S. Carbon Monoxide Laws for each state
National Conference of State Legislatures
As of March 2018, a majority of states have enacted statutes regarding carbon monoxide (CO) detectors, and another 11 have promulgated regulations on CO detectors. Alaska requires detectors approved by the state fire marshal be installed in all dwellings. Connecticut requires them in all new construction, as does New Hampshire, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Utah, Vermont, Washington and West Virginia. Florida also requires them in new construction, and in every room with a boiler. Minnesota passed a law requiring detectors in motor boats.

CO Detectors in U.S. Homes
27 states and the District of Columbia require carbon monoxide detectors in private dwellings via state statute: Alaska, California, Colorado, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia (via adoption of the International Residential Code), Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, Washington, West Virginia and Wisconsin. Certain states limit the installation to buildings with fossil-fuel burning devices, others only require the device be installed upon the sale of the property or unit.

Another 11 states require carbon monoxide detectors in private dwellings regulatorily through the adoption of the International Residential Code or via an amendment to their state’s building code: Alabama, Georgia, Idaho, Kentucky, Louisiana, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Virginia, and Wyoming.

CO Detectors in U.S. Schools
California, Connecticut, Illinois, Maine and Maryland require carbon monoxide (CO) detectors in school buildings.

CO Detectors in U.S. Hotels and Motels
Fourteen states require the installation of carbon monoxide detectors in hotels and motels under the statute. - Three of those states (New Jersey, Vermont and Wisconsin) have complementary administrative regulations. - Two states (Kansas and Washington) have requirements through administrative regulations alone.

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

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

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

Are you in the know?

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

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

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


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

Standard for Single and Multiple Station Carbon Monoxide Alarms

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

What is in the air you are breathing right now?

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

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

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

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

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

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

The night started off well, but the Sharks held on for dear life to end their road trip on a high note. It was a long and frustrating road trip through Buffalo and Eastern Canada, but the San Jose Sharks were able to end it on a high note with a 3-1 win over the Montreal Canadiens. Throughout this five-game road trip, the Sharks have chased the score, playing from behind in all their games, never once holding the lead. However, against the Canadiens, the Sharks were able to grab the opening goal of the game and hold the lead for the first time on this road trip. A turnover led to Justin Braun recovering the puck and firing a slap shot past Carey Price early in the first period, for a goal Price certainly wants back. After struggling their first four games, the Sharks looked like a completely different team in the opening period as they took the early lead and seemed to have an extra gear in their skates.

In honor of National Handwashing Awareness Week, Hilton Garden Inn and Hampton by Hilton announced a partnership with Clean the World, the world's largest organization to recycle hotel soap and bath amenities. Furthering Hilton’s 2030 target to send zero soap to landfill, Hilton Garden Inn and Hampton by Hilton commit to supporting Clean the World by providing recycled hygiene products to save the lives of those in need. 

As part of the global partnership that begins in 2019, more than 670 Hilton Garden Inn and 2,230 Hampton by Hilton properties in the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic will recycle discarded soap and bathroom amenity bottles to be converted into new bars of soap and hygiene kits. By recycling these products, Clean the World provides soap to those in need, ultimately preventing diseases within communities and reducing mortality rates around the world.

The partnership between Hilton Garden Inn and Hampton by Hilton with Clean the World is an extension of the pre-existing partnership between the global nonprofit organization and Hilton. In October 2016, Embassy Suites by Hilton, Homewood Suites by Hilton and Home2 Suites by Hilton announced an industry-first standard that has added over 1,000 hotels to the Clean the World program, diverting more than 397,000 pounds of waste from landfills into recycled materials. Hilton’s partnership with Clean the World has already helped distribute over 7.1 million bars of recycled soap to people across 127 countries. With this new commitment, Hilton will more than double the number of hotels it has in the program. 

“We have witnessed the powerful global impact Hilton’s partnership with Clean the World has made and how it continues to serve those most in need and inspires a sustainable future,” said Bill Duncan, global head of Hilton’s All Suites and Focused Service brands. “We’re proud of the work that has been done thus far and look forward to deepening our commitment to providing at-risk communities with access to soap while simultaneously reducing waste across the globe.” 

Hilton Garden Inn and Hampton by Hilton’s alliance with Clean the World is part of Hilton’s Travel with Purpose corporate responsibility initiative. The partnership supports Hilton’s goal to send zero soap to landfills by 2030 and cut the company’s environmental footprint in half through responsible hospitality. 

Clean the World’s mission to protect the environment and save millions of lives by leading a global hygiene revolution began in 2009 and since then, the organization has distributed recycled soap and other hygienic products to families in need, contributing to a 35 percent reduction in the death rate of children under the age of five dying due to hygiene-related illnesses. The soap is made from discarded bars donated by hotels around the world, then crushed, sanitized and cut into new soap.  Clean the World’s foundation distributes these soap bars to individuals in need or adds them to hygiene kits along with shampoo, a toothbrush and a towel as part of its WASH (water, sanitization, and hygiene) education and emergency relief efforts. The recycled bath products go to underserved communities to ensure proper handwashing and hygiene is encouraged to eliminate the threat of numerous preventable diseases. Hilton has worked with Clean the World since its launch to help overcome this epidemic in various countries, as well as in times of natural disasters, and now will further support the organization through Hilton Garden Inn and Hampton by Hilton.

“Hilton’s partnership with Clean the World has already made an impressive life-changing impact around the globe since we joined forces,” said Shawn Seipler, founder and CEO of Clean the World. “The very first hotel we collected soap from was Hampton Inn by Hilton Orlando-International Airport in 2009, and today, we are eager to keep the momentum going by extending our alliance among Hampton by Hilton and Hilton Garden Inn brands. Together, we can work to eradicate diarrheal diseases and pneumonia, the two top killers of children worldwide, in our lifetime.”  

In addition to its soap recycling program, Hilton leads many sustainability initiatives through Hilton's Travel with Purpose corporate responsibility strategy. For information on the company’s Travel with Purpose goals visit cr.hilton.com/toward2030/ or cr.hilton.com.

          Trump’s “Tariff Man” Rant Was Nonsense, But Thankfully an Actual Adult Is Leading Trade Talks With China      Cache   Translate Page      

If you spent any time paying close attention to the negotiations between the U.S., Canada, and Mexico over the new and debatably improved North American Free Trade Agreement, chances are you noticed a basic routine emerge.

Representatives of each country would meet. They’d make progress on a key issue. Or maybe they wouldn’t. But in the meantime, Donald Trump would provide color commentary, usually by tweeting or ranting about Canada. He frothed obsessively about Ottawa’s dairy protectionism and poked fun at imaginary shoe smugglers from Ontario. After striking a preliminary two-way deal with Mexico, he delivered a surreal press conference where he threatened to cut Canada out of the final pact entirely while targeting its car exports with tariffs.

Trump’s outbursts created the appearance that he really, truly might be about to scrap NAFTA entirely—or that he would at least try to, if discussions didn’t go his way. But in the end, everybody reached a deal, one that made a few significant changes to NAFTA, but left most of its basic architecture in place. This happened in part because, while the president was publicly fulminating like a drunk Jets fan watching the game on Sunday, his delegation, led by Trade Rep. Robert Lighthizer, pressed ahead with somewhat normal negotiations. By the end, it became clear that Lighthizer, a respected trade lawyer and lobbyist known for his protectionist streak, was pretty much running the show.

I do not know if this was all an intentional good-cop-bad-cop routine on the part of the White House, an attempt to practice the mad-man theory of international statecraft, or simply the byproduct of Trump truly wanting to kill NAFTA for good while his aides sought to reform it. But it ended in a deal. And if you squint, it seems like the administration is getting ready to repeat the same basic song and dance with China.

Up until now, trade talks with Beijing have been rocky, to say the least. There have been rounds of tariffs and counter-tariffs on hundreds-of-billions of dollars worth of goods, leaving Chinese leaders caught off guard and unsold American soy beans piling up in storage. In part, this is because the fundamental conflicts between the countries run more deeply than they do between NAFTA’s members. There are legitimate disputes over issues like intellectual property protection and industry subsidies, not to mention national security tensions. But another factor has seemingly been basic disorganization within the administration. Its trade team has split between moderates—lately, that’s meant Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin—and hardliners of varying degrees, including Lighthizer, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, and White House trade adviser Peter Navarro. These factions have jockeyed for influence, leaving the the Chinese with no idea who was in charge.

Over the past few days, that seems to have changed. After Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping met over dinner at the G20 meeting in Argentina, the two countries announced a holiday-season cease fire in their trade war, giving themselves a few months to broker a wider deal. Here is how the New York Times described the agreement:

In a significant concession, Mr. Trump will postpone a plan to raise tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods to 25 percent, from 10 percent, on Jan. 1. The Chinese agreed to an unspecified increase in their purchases of American industrial, energy and agricultural products, which Beijing hit with retaliatory tariffs after Mr. Trump targeted everything from steel to consumer electronics.

The countries set an ambitious deadline of 90 days to reach a broader trade agreement, with the White House warning that if they did not come to terms by then, Mr. Trump would raise the existing tariff rate to 25 percent.

On Monday, the White House announced that Lighthizer would lead the U.S. effort, just as he led NAFTA talks, a decision which some suggested could “rattle” Beijing, since he’s one of the administration’s China skeptics. Then, on Tuesday, Trump helped send the stock market plunging while launching a whole lot of middling Twitter jokes (mine particularly) by declaring that he was a “Tariff Man.”

There are a few notable things about these tweets. For one, Trump is yet again misleadingly suggesting that tariffs are a tax paid by foreign countries or companies who sell goods into the United States. This is not true. Tariffs are paid by importers, which is to say, U.S. companies, who sometimes eat the cost themselves, or pass it on to consumers. In some cases, American buyers will force their suppliers in China to offer discounts, so that they end up indirectly bearing the cost of the tariff. But it’s not like we’re collecting a toll directly from factories in Shenzen. As usual, Trump’s public statements suggest he doesn’t really understand the nuances of the policy tool he’s embraced.

On the other hand, there’s also nothing really different in Trump’s comments from, say, what the New York Times has reported. Lighthizer is leading a team that has 90 days to broker a deal before new tariffs kick in (though, of course, these deadlines often turn out to be flexible). Trump just added a bit of bellicosity, while reminding the world that he lacks even a remote amount of subject-matter expertise.

If you’re the sort of person who wants to see the conflict with China resolved, this should all be good news. Lighthizer might be a China hawk. But he’s also the administration’s only real high-ranking official with the skills or staff to steer these talks. Mnuchin is a wealthy Wall Street journeyman who ended up Treasury Secretary because he did fundraising for Trump’s campaign; Ross is an tone-deaf private equity mogul with a habit of inflating his own wealth; and Navarro is an ideologue without a formal policy role. Lighthizer, on the other hand, has been dealing with trade issues since he was in the Reagan White House, where he used tariff threats to get the Japanese to cut steel shipments to the U.S. He’s the only adult who was ever going to walk into the room, and as long as he’s there, it may not matter much if Trump actually knows how a tariff works. Try to tune out the outbursts.

          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.

No, I am not a dealer. I am simply a long-time fan of Leitz and Leica (over 40 years). My interest in Leica started when I was 14 years old, with the Leica M5 and the Leicaflex SL. Once I tried the M5, I was hooked! Thanks to a family friend who was a major buyer of Leitz products back then, I got to meet several people at Leitz Canada, which gave me a unique opportunity to ask questions (a lot of questions…) about Leitz and Leica, cameras, lenses, why Leitz lenses cost so much more, etc.. These were very different days back then. Leica Camera, as it is now known, almost went bankrupt in early 2004 (in large part due to the Leica DMR experiment, and a lot of bad management decisions). Fortunately for Leica, Andreas Kaufmann, who already had started investing in Leica, decided to take a majority position and run the company his way - which has turned out to be a fantastic success! Have a look at the latest post in PhotoRumors: “October CIPA (Camera & Imaging Products Association in Japan) numbers: still worse than past years“. Things are not looking good for Japanese companies (strong competition from smartphone makers, the consumer perception that most traditional cameras are a commodity, etc…). Meanwhile, Leica camera sales are up, revenue keeps going up. In short, Leica's marketing strategy is paying off. One more reason why all these years (decades) later, I am still a fan!

          Oil groped bottom      Cache   Translate Page      

The worst monthly dynamics over the past decade has changed for oil, the best two-day increase since June, thanks to friendship. Warm meeting of Mohammed bin Salman and Vladimir Putin, as well as a joint dinner of Donald Trump and Xi Jinping at the G20 summit in Buenos Aires, inspire hope for solving several problems of the bulls in Brent and WTI. On the one hand, there are growing risks of production cuts following the OPEC meeting on December 6. On the other hand, the de-escalation of the trade conflict can have a positive effect on global demand for black gold. The market had a reason for the correction to the "bearish" trend, and he hurried to use it.

If Russia can afford lower oil prices, then for Saudi Arabia, this is highly undesirable. The question is, by what size will Riyadh persuade Moscow to cut production? According to Reuters, the Kremlin is ready for 140 thousand b / d, the cartel would like to receive from it 250-300 thousand b / d. In one of the previous materials, I noted that there was still a third player in the face of the United States, but the cooling of relations between Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump after the incident in the Kerch Strait does not allow discussing the option under which the Russian Federation is increasing production. The states believe that they will do without Russia in such an important matter as the reduction of the cost of black gold. Let them continue to think so.

Dynamics of oil production growth

PWFiKR8bvh1_vtMS7kZfbKmE0XzWR8xGK8TxE_YB

The loud statements of Saudi Arabia on the eve of the OPEC summit on December 6 about the need to stabilize the market by joint efforts and that Riyadh alone does not intend to cut production, are focused more on the cartel. Formally, the meeting may be about a proportional reduction in production by 3-3.5% from October levels, however, it is obvious that each of the participating countries will bear an individual load. The total volume of cuts (together with Russia) can reach 1.3-1.4 million b / s.

From the point of view of the proposal, the support of the "bulls" for Brent and WTI was provided by Canada's statement to reduce production by 325 thousand b / d. The government intends to unload the warehouses and put an end to the crisis in the oil industry. The requirements of the official Ottawa to manufacturing companies will be valid until the end of 2019, although the volume of reductions is planned to be gradually reduced.

As for the truce in the trade wars, its influence on the black gold market is manifested in two main areas. First, the States will not temporarily impose duties on all Chinese imports. If this happened, the economy of the Middle Kingdom, according to the calculations of the Financial Times, already in 2019 would have slowed down by 1-1.5 pp China is the largest consumer of oil, so the positive news has become a catalyst for the attack of the bulls in Brent and WTI. Secondly, the de-escalation of the conflict leads to a weakening of the American dollar, which should also be considered as good news for black gold.

Technically, after reaching the target of 113% for the "Shark" pattern, a regular rebound followed. The probability of development of correction in the direction of 23.6%, 38.2% and 50% of the CD wave is high.

Now that it's officially fall, travel season is almost upon us. The days are growing shorter, and the weather is getting colder and wetter... or worse.

We also have some tips on how to find cheap tickets to save money on your vacation on warm and sandy Grace Bay Beach.

Southwest Airlines has announced they will resume direct flights from Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood to Providenciales International Airport (PLS) in Turks and Caicos starting November 4.

These flights will connect in Fort Lauderdale to and from cities in the eastern half of the United States such as Baltimore, New York, Atlanta, Orlando, Tampa and Washington DC.

As well  Southwest will be offering new direct flights from Nashville to Providenciales, with service expected to start in November, 2017. Fares and flight schedules to Providenciales have yet to be announced, so stay tuned!

InterCaribbean Launches New Turks and Caicos Flights

If you're planning an excursion to Grand Turk and want to see as much of Turks and Caicos as possible, InterCaribbean's new service may be of interest.

Turks and Caicos-based regional Caribbean airline InterCaribbean Airways has officially commenced its new service from Grand Turk to both South Caicos and Salt Cay.

List of Flights to Turks and Caicos

Tips on Getting Cheap Tickets to Turks and Caicos

For some people, the actual planning process is one of the most enjoyable parts of taking a vacation. It's always a challenge to hunt down the best flight deals, so here are a few tips:

1. Search for tickets one seat at a time

If you are searching for tickets for your family, if you really want to save money, try searching by one ticket at a time. This is because most automated systems will show you the highest fare for all the tickets. If you try searching one seat at a time, there may be limited seats on sale.

2. Search at midweek

Airlines tend to launch their sales on Tuesdays and end them on Thursdays, so don’t limit your searches to the weekends.

3. Fly on a holiday

It may seem counterintuitive, but the biggest savings can be found by flying on the actual holiday, such as Thanksgiving or Christmas Day. The exception is if you’re traveling over a three-day weekend—then, everyone is looking to fly on the actual holiday, so that’s the perfect time to try and extend your vacation by a day.

4. Fly on a Tuesday, Wednesday or a Saturday

Why? Because planes are least full on these days of the week, these flights usually have the lowest fares.

5. Monitor Twitter, Facebook and airline emails

Follow your favorite airlines on social media in addition to signing up for discount online travel company emails.

Canada’s Minister of Health Honorable Ginette Petitpas Taylor officially endorsed the Undetectable = Untransmittable (U=U) campaign. As mentioned in hivplusmag.com, the Minister held a roundtable with citizens from across Canada to discuss life living with HIV, looking for a better understanding of their experiences and a possible way to lessen the sigma of HIV/AIDS as stigma leads to people not reaching out for treatment, support, prevention, etc.

Canada is committed to preventing new HIV infections and achieving our global targets. The courage of people living with HIV inspires me. The continued support of initiatives like the Undetectable = Untransmittable campaign are critical to ending HIV-related stigma. Ending stigma will also go a long way in helping us prevent new infections, reach the undiagnosed, and ensure that people living with HIV receive the care, treatment and support they need. - Minister Taylor

What is U=U?

Scientific advances have shown that antiretroviral therapy (ART) preserves the health of people living with HIV. We also have strong evidence of the prevention effectiveness of ART. When ART results in viral suppression, defined as less than 200 copies/ml or undetectable levels, it prevents sexual HIV transmission. Across three different studies, including thousands of couples and many thousand acts of sex without a condom or pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), no HIV transmissions to an HIV-negative partner were observed when the HIV-positive person was virally suppressed. This means that people who take ART daily as prescribed and achieve and maintain an undetectable viral load have effectively no risk of sexually transmitting the virus to an HIV-negative partner. - CDC Division of HIV/AIDS Prevention

Will this move of Canada signing on to support and educate about U=U lead to other federal health ministers worldwide following suit? If they had someone like Ginette Petitpas Taylor, they may.  Here she is in an interview from 2017 on World AIDS Day and what she feels Canada's Commitments would be for this year, 2018.

 

ABC7 Television / Digital Host & Producer, Karl Schmid (@karljschmid) is making a move to help U=U become more well known here in the US and Los Angeles as he shared the video below on his Instagram.

Congratulations #LosAngeles for making December 4th U=U Awareness Day! 

#stophivstigma #sciencenotstigma #uequalsu

Do you think U=U would ever be supported by the US Government?  Your nation's government?

Do you personally embrace U=U?  Or are you just not there yet?

          Disturbing Update Released About American Woman Who Went Missing on Bday Vacation      Cache   Translate Page      

At the end of November, extremely troubling news was reported about an American on vacation. 36-year-old Carla Stefaniak disappeared in Costa Rica while on a vacation to celebrate her birthday. 

According to BBC, Stefaniak was with her sister-in-law, April Burton, in the San Jose suburb of Escazu. On November 27, Carla brought April to the airport as she was heading back to Florida a day early. 

https://twitter.com/GlennaWPLG/status/1070039248944869376

April knew that her sister-in-law was taking an Uber to go sightseeing before returning to her Airbnb. Throughout the day, Carla was in communication with her friends back home. 

Carla said that it had been raining throughout the day. At around 9 p.m. local time, she text a friend saying that the power in her Airbnb had gone out and that it was "pretty sketchy" outside. 

https://twitter.com/WFLARyan/status/1070031308724822017

The following day, on November 28, several friends messaged Carla for her birthday but received no response. The following day, Carla failed to board her flight home. 

Now, a week after her disappearance, the Costa Rican police have found a dead body wrapped in plastic near the Airbnb that Carla was staying at. As of 2:45 p.m. EST, police had not confirmed whether or not it is Carla. 

According to Radar, the body is "extremely decayed" and therefore no confirmations can be made until an autopsy is performed. However, the Airbnb owner and local security guards are still sticking to their story. 

https://twitter.com/Blotter_Report/status/1069930173829709825

They say that Carla left the rental home at around 5:00 a.m. on November 28 with her luggage. Still, Carla's family does not believe that story. 

Please be praying for Carla's family during this extremely difficult time, especially as they await the results of the autopsy. Share your prayers here, and we will continue to update as information is made available. In other recent news, the man behind one of America's favorite restaurants was just found dead. Please pray for his family as well.

          Susan Delacourt: Are MPs the weak link when it comes to safeguarding Canada?      Cache   Translate Page      

All fingers are pointing at the RCMP for the security lapse in Justin Trudeau’s disastrous trip to India this year.

But it’s the “MP” part of the report’s findings that also deserves some closer scrutiny — specifically, whether individual members of Parliament are increasingly the weak links in Canada’s national-security chain.

If Canada is getting serious about the threat of foreign interference — and David Vigneault, the head of the Canadian Security Intelligence Service made that very clear in a rare speech on Tuesday in Toronto — it is also looking like MPs’ potential vulnerability should be climbing higher on the radar.

“In the interest of national security, members of the House of Commons and Senate should be briefed upon being sworn in and regularly thereafter on the risks of foreign interference and extremism in Canada,” says recommendation number one in the special report of the National Security and Intelligence Committee of Parliamentarians (NSICOP.)

What makes that recommendation even more interesting — maybe even ironic — is that it was written with the help of Tony Clement, the former Conservative cabinet minister recently ousted from his caucus over a sexting scandal and shadowy extortion attempts against him.

“Tony Clement was a full and active member of NSICOP until he resigned on November 7, so he participated in all deliberations and contributed to the committee’s discussions and work up until that time, including on this special report,” said Rennie Marcoux, executive director of the committee, when I asked on Tuesday about how much the disgraced MP had contributed to the findings.

Let that sink in. Not only was Clement investigating foreign interference in Canadian politics this year, but he may well have been living it too. It’s like that old UPS commercial about consultants: “We don’t actually do what we propose; we just propose it.”

Most Canadians probably remember the prime minister’s India trip last February for his highly questionable wardrobe choices and terrible optics, but the committee’s report was prompted by something slightly more serious — specifically, the presence of a convicted attempted assassin, Jaspal Atwal, in the midst of events by the Canadian delegation while in India.

How did Atwal wrangle himself an invite to Trudeau’s over-the-top party? With a simple request to a member of Parliament — Surrey Centre MP Randeep Sarai, who later said he didn’t really “invite” Atwal; he merely forwarded his name to the powers that be in charge of the trip, who then rubber-stamped him. That’s how easy it was.

Now, it may be true that security forces dropped the ball when it came to vetting Atwal’s request to be part of the PM’s trip to India, but there’s a reason, we assume, that the number-one recommendation in the special report appears to pinpoint MPs as insufficiently aware of security risks from extremist elements abroad.

Too bad Raj Grewal, the newly independent MP for Brampton East, wasn’t part of this committee either. He might have learned that his now self-acknowledged gambling addiction made him vulnerable too.

According to a report by Canadian Press, Grewal’s gambling problem has been linked to an investigation into money laundering by foreign-based extremists. Here’s what CP reported:

“The source, who requested anonymity due to the sensitivity of the matter, said Grewal’s debts came to the attention of the Ontario Provincial Police during an investigation of some ‘particularly shady guys’ who might be involved in laundering drug money destined for an extremist group in the Middle East.”

The Commons was in an uproar on Tuesday about what was left out of the committee’s special report — all the asterisks that have been inserted to blank out sensitive information. Much of those asterisks have to do with “foreign interference.”

But what if the big risk is hiding in plain sight — not just in this report, but in the cases of rogue MPs we’ve seen this fall?

What may be most disturbing about this week’s report is not the missing words, but the absence of information about how national-security lapses will be prevented in future. As the report notes, no one has gone to the trouble yet of having a cross-departmental study of “lessons learned” from the India trip.

One such lesson certainly revolves around how individual MPs could be viewed as portals into Canadian politics by foreign extremists. And is it enough merely to warn them of those threats, as this report recommends?

Nelufar Hedayat unites two women with disabilities from Toronto and Mumbai, who are challenging misconceptions about their sexuality and what they’re capable of achieving. Maayan Ziv is a fashion photographer and entrepreneur from Toronto, Canada. She uses a wheelchair and became frustrated with the lack of information about accessibility of venues in her city. Having discovered early on that technology can alter the day to day life of disabled people all over the globe, she decided to develop an app. It is called AccessNow and uses crowd-sourcing technology to create an accessible map of a city. It's now operational in 35 countries around the world. Nidhi Goyal is an activist and comedian from Mumbai. At the age of 14 she began to lose her sight, which she maintains allowed her to ‘see more clearly’ the barriers that disabled people face. She is India’s first female disabled stand-up comedian, using humour to challenge the way people think about dating with disability and sexuality. She founded the non-profit Rising Flame which advocates for women with disabilities, and delivers disability and inclusion training to companies across India.

          CPPIB Invests in US Detention Firms?      Cache   Translate Page      
The Guardian reports, Canada pension fund investment into US detention firm larger than reported:
A controversial investment by one of Canada’s biggest pension funds in a company which operates private prisons in the United States is larger than initially thought, recent securities filings have revealed.

The Guardian and Documented reported last month that the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPPIB) – which manages $366.6bn in pension funds on behalf of some 20 million Canadian retirees – holds stock in Geo Group.

But the most recent regulatory filings show the CPPIB has added to its holdings in Geo Group by 90,000 shares since June – an increase of nearly 50% – bringing the total investment value to $6.1m. It is not known if the fund still holds the shares; the investment board did not respond to multiple requests for comment.

Facilities operated by Geo Group have been used in recent months to detain families in the United States, following Donald Trump’s “zero tolerance” crackdown on immigration by the American government.

Meanwhile, the CPPIB decreased its holdings of CoreCivic, another private prison company, by 5,900 shares, valuing the investment at $1.65m at the time of filing.

The CPPIB is one of the largest funds in the world, and although the investments in American private prisons companies represent a narrow slice of the overall fund, they have prompted an angry reaction from campaign groups and politicians.

“I’m very surprised to hear that number is significantly higher than we had previously thought,” said Emma Pullman of SumOfUs, an advocacy group that started one of two online petitions calling on the fund to divest its holdings. Between them, the two petitions have received more than 45,000 signatures.

Selling the investment would mark a significant move for the CPPIB, which prides itself in resisting external lobbying attempts.

But public outcry appears to have rattled the board. On 14 November, the board convened a meeting with activists from two separate groups, both petitioning the investment board to divest its holdings.

“I think the reason they’re looking into these options is because the writing is on the wall,” said Logan McIntosh, a campaigner with the Leadnow advocacy group, who attended the meeting. “It’s an unnecessary and shameful investment and it’s undermining the confidence of Canadians that they can manage our retirement savings responsibly.”

Every two years, the CPPIB hosts legally mandated presentations across the country to outline its investment strategy and allow the public to ask questions.

“I don’t think Canadians are interested in profiting from the abuse of humans and the caging of children,” said Darcie Lanthier, a former financial advisor who attended one such event in Charlottetown. “I know, with what little savings I have, I go out of my way to ensure my investments are doing no harm.”
As I write this comment, stocks are plunging, and it reminds me that CPPIB has bigger issues to deal with.

Anyway, I received this article last night from Sam Boskey who is part of a distribution list made up largely of radical leftists and Marxists (they're good people, I just don't share their ideology but enjoy reading their perspectives on this 'UGLY NEW WORLD').

I forwarded the article to Mark Machin, CPPIB's CEO, and Michel Leduc, CPPIB's Senior Managing Director & Global Head of Public Affairs and Communications, and stated: "Heads up, this can snowball into something nasty" (something along those lines).

Michel was kind enough to reach me earlier today to give some proper context into all this:
  • Out of CPPIB's 26 investment programs, only 2 are on cruise control, the passive balancing (index) portfolio and the systematic quantitative portfolio which invests in stocks all over the world based on quantitative factors. The problem lies with the latter portfolio.
  • Michel told me other large US and Canadian pensions also invested in these stocks, some like CalSTRS, divested from private prisons, others didn't. CPPIB was like 20th down the list but given its size and status, it got called out in the press. 
  • He reiterated that CPPIB does not divest from stocks because of some outside interest group. "We have a mandate to maximize returns without taking undue risks."
  • However, he also stated that "perception matters to the extent it hurts the brand and reputation of the organization" so while it doesn't drive the investment process, it must be taken into consideration.
  • Also, CPPIB adheres to certain ESG factors when making an investment and "human rights is one of them" so this "crisis represents an opportunity to address certain deficiencies in the passive and systematic quant portfolios."
  • Basically, what he means is CPPIB is exploring a way to add an important qualitative filter to all its investments to make sure certain ESG principles are being adhered to. 
  • It's important to note even though CPPIB doesn't divest, it does routinely look at its investment process and makes changes as needed like protecting the organization from brand and reputation risk and making sure it adheres to its ESG principles across all portfolios. 
  • I raised the issue of tobacco and how pensions should follow Dr. King's advice and divest from it, and he told me "it's an issue for our passive portfolio and we are carefully weighing the pros and cons of maintaining tobacco investments but again, we must respect our mandate and our process."
  • Lastly, he told me he had spoken with a large US asset manager who manages trillions (hmm, I wonder who that can be...) and he told him "for ten years, we didn't have an issue with these investments and then all of a sudden, they got flagged."
In any case, this proves that a small insignificant investment can be blown way out of proportion and come back to haunt large pensions and other investors.

For CPPIB, this represents an opportunity to dynamically review their investment process to be able to flag questionable investments ahead of time, before it becomes a media circus and blown way out of proportion. In other words, it's good this happened.

Believe it or not, the folks at CPPIB aren't into violating human rights and abusing children at US detention centers but they have a job to do, a mandate to fulfill and a process to respect. There is a review going on to improve the process, once completed, they will make a public comment.

          Stop Loss Bags (no replies)      Cache   Translate Page      
Hey Guys

Maybe a bunch of you guys already use these but I am just throwing this out there!

I don't know about everyone on this forum but I presume a lot f us use POR15 or similar products. As we all know it is expensive stuff and once you open a can the stuff basically starts to cure and usually you end up wasting a bunch of product. I have tried the punching little holes in the lid, or once open filling the empty space with propane and re-lid it, etc.,
About 6 months ago I was in Lee Valley Tools (another place where they have a bunch of stuff that I did not know I needed!) and I saw these "Stop Loss Bags" - I bought one just to try it out. I got home, poured a new can of POR15 into it (with a small funnel) and since then I have not wasted any through premature curing!
These are a clear heavy duty bag with a fill/pour spout of about a quart capacity. Once full you just squeeze the excess air out and cap it. I am back to buying my POR15 in quart cans as it is cheaper than the little 6 packs of half pints and just keep it in one of these bags!
It is an amazing product and for the POR15 I am still using the same bag so the $5+ price tag for a bag is pretty reasonable!

My next experiment is with the hardener for my base/clear which is notorious for going bad quickly once you open a can of it...

In Canada Lee Valley Tools has a physical presence - I believe they also have a US website for on line shopping...

Thanks and Merry Christmas to all!

          Comment on MLB realignment could result in a Phillies competitive nightmare by Schmolik      Cache   Translate Page      
I doubt they would drastically shake up the NL and AL. I think there needs to be more baseball teams in the south so I added Charlotte and Nashville. NL East: Phillies, Mets, Nationals, Pirates NL Central: Cubs, Cardinals, Brewers, Reds NL West: Dodgers, Giants, Padres, Diamondbacks NL South: Braves, Marlins, Rays, Charlotte AL East: Yankees, Red Sox, Orioles, Blue Jays AL Central: Indians, Tigers, White Sox, Twins AL West: Angels, A's, Mariners, Rockies AL South: Rangers, Astros, Royals, Nashville To me this is an almost perfectly geographically balanced setup. I wouldn't know where to put Portland or Montreal and I'm not a fan of either city being added (Portland is too far a trip from Philly and I can do without any more teams from Canada). I'd love to have the Pirates back in the NL East and the Pirates, Mets, and Nationals are the perfect NL East for the Phils with no long plane rides (as opposed to now, Atlanta and Miami).

          George H.W. Bush - The Death of a War Criminal      Cache   Translate Page      

How the Mainstream Media Turn Villains into Saints



It is sickening the way the press eulogise dead war criminals and US Presidents in particular.  I can remember the BBC gushing over Ronald Reagan when he died and making a tribute programme to the man who unleashed the Contras in Nicaragua and supported the death squads in El Salvador. Ronald Reagan was seen as a beacon of hope for democracy even whilst he did his best to impoverish the poorest Americans.  But this is how our opinion makers work.
George Bush was the man who headed the CIA, a criminal organisation which subverted democratically elected governments in Latin America and brought the regimes of Pinochet and Videla to power in Chile, replete with their torture chambers and mass disappearances.  Bush represented all that was most vile in American politics and the fact that the Clintons are gushing all over his memory should teach us that when it comes to US politics there is no essential difference between Republicans and Democrats.

George Bush was the son of Senator Prescott Bush, a businessman and banker who made much of his fortune trading with Nazi Germany even after war was declared.  But as one of America's leading families, almost akin to  royalty, he escaped prosecution for aiding the enemy at a time of war despite financing Fritz Thyssen one of the largest steel and coal barons who organised finance for Hitler.
People won't remember the shooting down of an Iranian civil airliner Flight 655 by the USS Vincennes of the US Navy. 290 people, including 66 children, were murdered. George H W Bush was not the kind quirky, friendly soul that is made out today.  George H.W. Bush in 1988 responded to the mass murder by saying: "I will never apologize for the United States of America. I don't care what the facts are." was his Trumpian response.

The tributes to former President George H.W. Bush, who died on Friday aged 94, have been pouring in from all sides of the political spectrum. He was a man “of the highest character,” said his eldest son and fellow former president, George W. Bush. “He loved America and served with character, class, and integrity,” tweeted former U.S. Attorney and #Resistance icon Preet Bharara. According to another former president, Barack Obama, Bush’s life was “a testament to the notion that public service is a noble, joyous calling. And he did tremendous good along the journey.” Apple boss Tim Cook said: “We have lost a great American.”

In the age of Donald Trump, it isn’t difficult for hagiographers of the late Bush Sr. to paint a picture of him as a great patriot and pragmatist; a president who governed with “class” and “integrity.” It is true that the former president refused to vote for Trump in 2016, calling him a “blowhard,” and that he eschewed the white nationalist, “alt-right,” conspiratorial politics that has come to define the modern Republican Party. He helped end the Cold War without, as Obama said, “firing a shot.” He spent his life serving his country — from the military to Congress to the United Nations to the CIA to the White House. And, by all accounts, he was also a beloved grandfather and great-grandfather to his 17 grandkids and eight great-grandkids.

Yes I know this was written for his son but it is equally applicable  to the father
Nevertheless, he was a public, not a private, figure — one of only 44 men to have ever served as president of the United States. We cannot, therefore, allow his actual record in office to be beautified in such a brazen way. “When a political leader dies, it is irresponsible in the extreme to demand that only praise be permitted but not criticisms,” as my colleague Glenn Greenwald has argued, because it leads to “false history and a propagandistic whitewashing of bad acts.” The inconvenient truth is that the presidency of George Herbert Walker Bush had far more in common with the recognizably belligerent, corrupt, and right-wing Republican figures who came after him — his son George W. and the current orange-faced incumbent — than much of the political and media classes might have you believe.
Consider:
He ran a racist election campaign. The name of Willie Horton should forever be associated with Bush’s 1988 presidential bid. Horton, who was serving a life sentence for murder in Massachusetts — where Bush’s Democratic opponent, Michael Dukakis, was governor —  had fled a weekend furlough program and raped a Maryland woman. A notorious television ad called “Weekend Passes,released by a political action committee with ties to the Bush campaign, made clear to viewers that Horton was black and his victim was white.
As Bush campaign director Lee Atwater bragged, “By the time we’re finished, they’re going to wonder whether Willie Horton is Dukakis’s running mate.” Bush himself was quick to dismissaccusations of racism as “absolutely ridiculous,” yet it was clear at the time — even to right-wing Republican operatives such as Roger Stone, now a close ally of Trump — that the ad had crossed a line. “You and George Bush will wear that to your grave,” Stone complained to Atwater. “It’s a racist ad. … You’re going to regret it.”
Stone was right about Atwater, who on his deathbed apologizedfor using Horton against Dukakis. But Bush never did.
He made a dishonest case for war. Thirteen years before George W. Bush liedabout weapons of mass destruction to justify his invasion and occupation of Iraq, his father made his own set of false claims to justify the aerial bombardment of that same country. The first Gulf War, as an investigation by journalist Joshua Keating concluded, “was sold on a mountain of war propaganda.”
For a start, Bush told the American public that Iraq had invaded Kuwait without provocation or warning.” What he omitted to mention was that the U.S. ambassador to Iraq, April Glaspie, had given an effective green light to Saddam Hussein, telling him in July 1990, a week before his invasion, “[W]e have no opinion on the Arab-Arab conflicts, like your border disagreement with Kuwait.”
Then there is the fabrication of intelligence. Bush deployed U.S. troops to the Gulf in August 1990 and claimed that he was doing so in order “to assist the Saudi Arabian Government in the defense of its homeland.” As Scott Peterson wrote in the Christian Science Monitor in 2002, “Citing top-secret satellite images, Pentagon officials estimated … that up to 250,000 Iraqi troops and 1,500 tanks stood on the border, threatening the key U.S. oil supplier.”
Yet when reporter Jean Heller of the St. Petersburg Times acquired her own commercial satellite images of the Saudi border, she found no signs of Iraqi forces; only an empty desert. “It was a pretty serious fib,” Heller told Peterson, adding: “That [Iraqi buildup] was the whole justification for Bush sending troops in there, and it just didn’t exist.”

He committed war crimes. Under Bush Sr., the U.S. dropped a whopping 88,500 tons of bombs on Iraq and Iraqi-occupied Kuwait, many of which resulted in horrific civilian casualties. In February 1991, for example, a U.S. airstrike on an air-raid shelter in the Amiriyah neighborhood of Baghdad killed at least 408 Iraqi civilians. According to Human Rights Watch, the Pentagon knew the Amiriyah facility had been used as a civil defense shelter during the Iran-Iraq war and yet had attacked without warning. It was, concluded HRW, “a serious violation of the laws of war.”

U.S. bombs also destroyedessential Iraqi civilian infrastructure — from electricity-generating and water-treatment facilities to food-processing plants and flour mills. This was no accident. As Barton Gellman of the Washington Post reportedin June 1991: “Some targets, especially late in the war, were bombed primarily to create postwar leverage over Iraq, not to influence the course of the conflict itself. Planners now say their intent was to destroy or damage valuable facilities that Baghdad could not repair without foreign assistance. … Because of these goals, damage to civilian structures and interests, invariably described by briefers during the war as ‘collateral’ and unintended, was sometimes neither.”
Got that? The Bush administration deliberately targeted civilian infrastructure for “leverage” over Saddam Hussein. How is this not terrorism? As a Harvard public health team concludedin June 1991, less than four months after the end of the war, the destruction of Iraqi infrastructure had resulted in acute malnutrition and “epidemic” levels of cholera and typhoid.
By January 1992, Beth Osborne Daponte, a demographer with the U.S. Census Bureau, was estimating that Bush’s Gulf War had caused the deaths of 158,000 Iraqis, including 13,000 immediate civilian deaths and 70,000 deaths from the damage done to electricity and sewage treatment plants. Daponte’s numbers contradicted the Bush administration’s, and she was threatened by her superiors with dismissal for releasing “false information. (Sound familiar?)
He refused to cooperate with a special counsel. The Iran-Contra affair, in which the United States traded missiles for Americans hostages in Iran, and used the proceeds of those arms sales to fund Contra rebels in Nicaragua, did much to undermine the presidency of Ronald Reagan. Yet his vice president’s involvement in that controversial affair has garnered far less attention. “The criminal investigation of Bush was regrettably incomplete,”wrote Special Counsel Lawrence Walsh, a former deputy attorney general in the Eisenhower administration, in his final report on the Iran-Contra affair in August 1993.
Why? Because Bush, who was “fully aware of the Iran arms sale,” according to the special counsel, failed to hand over a diary “containing contemporaneous notes relevant to Iran/contra” and refused to be interviewed in the later stages of the investigation. In the final days of his presidency, Bush even issued pardonsto six defendants in the Iran-Contra affair, including former Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger — on the eve of Weinberger’s trial for perjury and obstruction of justice. “The Weinberger pardon,” Walsh pointedly noted, “marked the first time a president ever pardoned someone in whose trial he might have been called as a witness, because the president was knowledgeable of factual events underlying the case.” An angry Walsh accused Bush of “misconduct” and helping to complete “the Iran-contra cover-up.”
Sounds like a Trumpian case of obstruction of justice, doesn’t it?

He escalated the racist war on drugs. In September 1989, in a televised address to the nation from the Oval Office, Bush held up a bag of crack cocaine, which he said had been “seized a few days ago in a park across the street from the White House . … It could easily have been heroin or PCP.”

Yet a Washington Post investigation later that month revealed that federal agents had “lured” the drug dealer to Lafayette Park so that they could make an “undercover crack buy in a park better known for its location across Pennsylvania Avenue from the White House than for illegal drug activity” (the dealer didn’t know where the White House was and even asked the agents for directions). Bush cynically used this prop — the bag of crack — to call for a $1.5 billion increase in spending on the drug war, declaiming: “We need more prisons, more jails, more courts, more prosecutors.
The result? “Millions of Americans were incarcerated, hundreds of billions of dollars wasted, and hundreds of thousands of human beings allowed to die of AIDS — all in the name of a ‘war on drugs’ that did nothing to reduce drug abuse,” pointed out Ethan Nadelmann, founder of the Drug Policy Alliance, in 2014. Bush, he argued, “put ideology and politics above science and health.” Today, even leading Republicans, such as Chris Christie and Rand Paul, agree that the war on drugs, ramped up by Bush during his four years in the White House, has been a dismal and racist failure.
He groped women. Since the start of the #MeToo movement, in late 2017, at least eight different womenhave come forward with claims that the former president groped them, in most cases while they were posing for photos with him. One of them, Roslyn Corrigan, told Time magazine that Bush had touched her inappropriately in 2003, when she was just 16. “I was a child,” she said. The former president was 79. Bush’s spokesperson offered this defenseof his boss in October 2017: “At age 93, President Bush has been confined to a wheelchair for roughly five years, so his arm falls on the lower waist of people with whom he takes pictures.” Yet, as Time noted, “Bush was standing upright in 2003 when he met Corrigan.”
Facts matter. The 41st president of the United States was not the last Republican moderate or a throwback to an imagined age of conservative decency and civility; he engaged in race baiting, obstruction of justice, and war crimes. He had much more in common with the two Republican presidents who came after him than his current crop of fans would like us to believe.

          Skier Mikaela Shiffrin clinches historic win      Cache   Translate Page      

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

'Huge blow'

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

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

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

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

READ: Guide to "Lake Lindsey"

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

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

Kutengeneza Ramani

  • Kwa mujibu wa tweet, Pascal Neis amesasisha ramani yake ya Unmapped Places. Inaelezea makazi mbali na njia kubwa za trafiki. Hata hivyo, makosa ya kutambulisha pia yalipatikana katika nchi zilizotengenezewa ramani vizuri.

  • Stefano Maffulli anapendekeza emergency=fire_alarm_box katika orodha ya barua pepe kwa "kifaa kilichowekwa kwenye ardhi ya umma kutumika kwa taarifa ya idara ya moto ya moto".

  • Toni Erdmann aliripoti kuhusu zana mpya ya kuthibitisha ubora wa uchambuzi (QA): PTNA (Public Transport Network Analysis) katika orodha ya barua pepe (tafsiri ya moja kwa moja) na katika jukwaa (tafsiri ya moja kwa moja).

  • Makala yenye mada Finding Missing Roads in the Philippines ya Gowin inaelezea kazi yake na njia mpya ya kuthibitisha barabara tovu il kukamilisha barabara nchini Filipino.

  • Zana ya kuthibitisha ubora wa anwani OSMSuspects ya dooley sasa inapatikana kwa watumiaji wote tena. Ukiingia na akaunti yako ya OSM, unaweza kuona metadata.

  • Leif Rasmussen alipendekeza kuongeza ratiba ya usafiri katika OSM katika pendekezo. Kama ilivyovyotarajiwa, watu wengi hawakukubaliana na kuongeza ratiba katika maelezo yao kamili na ya kina.Ni kiasi kikubwa cha data, ambacho hubadilika mara nyingi. Itakuwa daima katika mtindo wa kizamani hivyo vigumu kutegemea.

  • Simon Poole hakubaliani na mazoezi ya sasa ya kugawanya vitambulisho kama languages=<code>;<code>;<code> na language:<code1>=yes + language:<code2>=yes. Anaona kuwa hii inafanya kuwa vigumu kwa watumiaji wa data na waandishi wa mhariri.

Jamii

Karibu asilimia 60 ya taarifa hizo zilikuwa zinahusu watumiaji, ikifuatwa na maelezo ya OSM. Bila kujali kitu cha wasiwasi, sababu kuu ya ripoti ilikuwa spam

Taasisi ya OpenStreetMap

  • Frederik Ramm, mshirika wa bodi ya OSMF na mfadhili wa OSMF, aliripoti kuhusu uvumi wa makampuni mawili ambayo hayajajulikana ambayo "yanahamasisha" wafanyakazi wao kujiunga na OSMF,na kuwapa mapendekezo ya uchaguzi na kulipa ada ya uanachama.

  • Rory McCann anaeleza katika orodha ya barua pepe ya OSMF jinsi mwajiri anaweza waambia wafanyakazi wale ambao wanapaswa kupigia kura na jinsi hii inaweza kuthibitishwa licha ya "haijulikani" uchapisho wa kura.

  • Tunajiunga na Michael Reichert na wito wa watu wengine kuwa mwanachama wa OSMF. Mjumbe wa bodi tu anaweza kuhakikisha kwamba bodi ya OSMF itatenda daima kwa maslahi ya watengenezaji wa ramani. Ikiwa unataka kupiga kura katika uchaguzi wa mwaka huu,unapaswa kujiunga kabla ya Novemba 15. Aidha, karibu vikundi vyote vya kazi vya OSMF vinatafuta msaada.

  • OSMF imekuwa ikifanya kazi katika kurekebisha OpenStreetMap API (Rails Port and CGIMap) ili kuzingatia Kanuni ya Ulinzi ya Takwimu Mkuu na imetangaza ombi la zabuni kala ya 15 Novemba.

Matukio

Mpango huo ulikuwa na wigo mpana na mada ikiwamo kutengeneza ramani, programu ya Overpass, OSM Wiki, njia za mawasiliano na mengine. Mpango huu umeonyesha uwezekano wa OSM kwa majibu ya kibinadamu na msaada wa maendeleo ya kiuchumi na kupainia viongozi (ambao ni waenye hiari) .

  • HOT inahitaji usaidizi juu ya wiki chache zinazofuata, kutambua idadi ya wakimbizi wa Venezuela walio katika kisiwa cha Aruba.

  • Shirika la Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team imemaliza kutengeneza ramani ya miundombinu, hasa majengo, barabara, na vipengele vya maji huko Semarang, mji mkuu wa tano wa Indonesia.

Ramani

  • Programu ya Magic Earth Navigation sasa inatumika katika programu ya CarPlay ya Apple baada ya sasisho la hivi karibuni, kulingana na hii ripoti (de) (tafsiri ya moja kwa moja).

  • Nicolas Bétheuil alieleza kuhusu ramani yake ya usafiri wa umma katika orodha ya burua pepe ya Kifaransa . (fr)(tafsiri ya moja kwa moja).

  • Template ya JOSM ya ramani ya Xmas ilirekebishwa na Negreheb kwa taarifa fupi (tafsiri ya moja kwa moja) ana akachapisha katika tovuti ya wiki (tafsiri ya moja kwa moja).

switch2OSM

  • Pristina, mji mkuu wa Kosovo, inatumia ramani ya OpenStreetMap kama ramani yao rasmi ya utalii. Stereo; (Guillaume Rischard) amendika makala kuhusu safari yake huko Kosovo, mkutano na jumuiya ya OSM, na kushawishi Manispaa ya Pristina kutumia ramani ya OpenStreetMap.

Open Data

  • OpenGeoHub imetangaza kutolewa kwa kwanza wa LandGIS, mfumo wa ramani ya wavuti iliyo sawa na OSM, ya data zinazohusika na ardhi na mazingira.Mradi huo inaeneza (au kwa maneno mengine inashindana) na OSM.

  • Statistics Canada imejadili kuhusu Open Database of Buildings, na inashirikiana na jumuiya ili kuagiza katika mikoa tofauti ya Canada.

Programu

  • Simon Poole aliandika kuhusu kutoendelea kwa Google Play ya Android 2.3 and 3.x katika blogu yake na nini inamaanisha kwa Vespucci, ambayo bado inatumia matoleo haya ya Android. Pia anaelezea jinsi ya kutumia Vespucci kwa vifaa ambavyo vina RAM iliyo chini sana

Vingine vya kijeographia

  • Justin O'Beirne ameandika makala kuhusu uchapishaji wa ramani mpya ya Apple na anaeleza jinsi ramani hizo ni tofauti na za zamani kwa kuonyesha mabadiliko ya kuvutia, kama kiasi cha kina cha mimea. Soma zaidi juu ya swala hili katika blogu yake.

          In Bush coverage, the media finds another foil for Trump      Cache   Translate Page      

Shortly before midnight on Friday, George H.W. Bush died at home in Houston. He was 94. Bush’s death set the stage for a weekend of tribute. Although some media coverage of America’s 41st president (mostly in left-leaning outlets) was harshly critical, the majority was glowing and nostalgic. In between, nuanced depictions of a complicated life got crowded out. The tenor of the news cycle felt much as it did in August following the death of John McCain.

As the news filtered through, many outlets published their obituaries of Bush. Obituaries are a strange art—most big news organizations write them in advance then keep them in cold storage, particularly when subjects are advanced in years and/or have a serious medical condition (Bush announced, in 2012, that he was living with vascular parkinsonism, a mobility-limiting disease). Political obituaries, in particular, can thus feel suspended in time—infusing the historical period they cover with the assumptions and values of when they were written. When finally published, obituaries are updated to mirror the mood of the day—setting a narrative around a dead public figure that subsequent coverage tends to reinforce.

In Bush’s case, that coverage has been dominated by favorable comparisons to President Trump. Bush’s death, much like McCain’s before him, became a metaphor for the death of civility in politics. A warm letter Bush wrote his successor, Bill Clinton, was held up as an artifact of bipartisan comity, as BuzzFeed’s Anne Helen Petersen noted in an insightful post. Many outlets highlighted Bush’s broad public popularity—both during his presidency and now—as an example of rare national consensus. And on cable news, in particular, commentators portrayed Bush as an honorable man who did politics the nice way. On CNN, Colin Powell, chairman of the joint chiefs of staff under Bush, summed up much coverage when he said, “Politics need not be mean and nasty, and he lived by that.”

Obituaries and the coverage leading off of them are news stories, not historical scholarship, so it’s understandable that they plug into current events. It is ironic, then, that the press glossed over Bush’s failures and flaws when so many of them track closely with recent developments in our politics. Just last month, Bush’s racist 1988 Willie Horton spot—the low point of two highly divisive presidential runs—was explicitly compared to a Trump campaign ad painting migrants as bloodthirsty criminals. Likewise, the Brett Kavanaugh saga re-upped Bush’s appointment of Clarence Thomas to the Supreme Court—Bush stuck with Thomas, as Trump stuck with Kavanaugh, despite credible allegations of sexual misconduct against his nominee. And Bush’s decision, as he prepared to leave office, to pardon defendants in the Iran–Contra scandal to shield himself from further investigation chimes, at least in some small way, with Trump’s reaction to the Mueller probe: just last week, Trump refused to rule out a pardon for Paul Manafort.

None of this is to diminish Bush’s many achievements, nor is it to say he was similar to Trump: he was not. But the focus on Bush’s comparatively civil style—to the exclusion of almost everything else—made much coverage of his death feel hagiographic. Even mild negativity was given a wide berth. Bizarrely, the AP said yesterday that it deleted a tweet and revised a story on Bush’s death “because the tweet and the opening of the story referenced his 1992 electoral defeat and omitted his WWII service.” (Its initial tweet had attracted right-wing ire online.)

As the cliche goes, journalism is the first rough draft of history. In a clear-eyed assessment for Politico on Saturday, historian David Greenberg wrote that in media coverage, “respect for the dead must coexist with respect for the historical record.” Over the weekend, many obituaries and follow-up stories missed the opportunity to judge Bush’s presidency by those standards, rather than the diminished stature of the White House’s current occupant.

Below, more on the life and death of George H.W. Bush:

  • Available, accessible, and informed: On CNN’s Reliable Sources, Brian Stelter and guests discussed what it was like to cover the first Bush White House. “Bush was available, he was accessible, he was informed and gosh, that’s what journalists like,” remembered Charles Bierbauer, who covered his administration for CNN. “Access is the most important thing.”
  • More remembrances: The New York Times’s Peter Baker reconstructs Bush’s final moments. Also in the Times, Maureen Dowd reflects on her mutually respectful relationship with the president she covered, despite their very different backgrounds, while in The Washington Post, Thomas Boswell remembers how Bush would contact him for sporting tips.
  • “The last true WASP”: The Atlantic’s Franklin Foer writes that fawning media coverage of Bush reflects a deeper-seated mourning for the passing of the Establishment. “For more than a century, this Establishment resided at the top of the American caste system. Now it is gone, and apparently people wish it weren’t,” Foer writes. “But good manners are hardly the same as moral courage; prudence is sometimes hard-hearted. Those who are mourning the passing of the old Establishment should mourn its many failures, too.”
  • A #MeToo omission: Multiple women accused Bush of inappropriate touching late last year, but those allegations were largely absent from coverage of his death. “In its long and thorough obituary, The New York Times made no mention of the allegations. Nor did The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, the Los Angeles Times, or the Associated Press,” Slate’s Molly Olmstead writes.
  • World AIDS Day: World AIDS Day was also underplayed on Saturday—a cruel irony given Bush’s inaction in the face of the AIDS crisis, Steven W. Thrasher writes in The Nation. “Bush dangerously hid the vast nature of American violence beneath the seductive cloak of civility, that opiate of mass media that gets journalists and readers to let violence go unremarked,” Thrasher says.

  • In the UK, lawmaker Kate Osamor resigned from the opposition Labour Party’s leadership team following reports that she threw a bucket of water over a Times (of London) reporter at her home, then threatened to “smash [his] face in” with a bat. Osamor attracted scrutiny after her son—who she employs in her parliamentary office—was sentenced for taking $3,000 worth of drugs into a music festival. The Times reported that Osamor misled the public about when she found out.
  • In France, meanwhile, journalists nationwide have found themselves on the end of threats and physical violence as a wave of civil unrest sweeps the country in response to rising diesel taxes. For CJR, Martin Goillandeau and Makana Eyre report that a protester broke a photographer’s cheek bone in three places with a punch. Another journalist is under police protection.
  • In the hours immediately before and after dissident writer Jamal Khashoggi’s murder in early October, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman sent at least 11 messages to the adviser overseeing the operation, The Wall Street Journal’s Warren P. Strobel reports. The call log underpinned the CIA’s assessment that MBS was likely responsible for Khashoggi’s killing—an assessment rejected by Trump.
