Copyright 2018 NPR. To see more, visit MARY LOUISE KELLY, HOST: Measles used to be one of the leading killers of children worldwide. Through the 1950s in the U.S. alone, three to four million people got sick with measles each year. Thousands died. Well, that changed dramatically when a measles vaccine became widely available in 1963. But the number of cases is on the rise again, with the most significant increases in Europe, the Middle East and the Americas. NPR's Jason Beaubien reports. JASON BEAUBIEN, BYLINE: The World Health Organization says there were 6.7 million measles cases in 2017, a 30 percent increase from the year before. Measles deaths are also up significantly. In the Middle East, measles has spiked in war-torn Yemen. In Venezuela, it crept back as the economy and health care systems have collapsed. In Europe, Ukraine is getting hit the worst, but there have also been significant outbreaks in France, Italy, Serbia, and Greece. The WHO warns that anti-vaccination

The following is an excerpt from the latest episode of Slate’s podcast Decoder Ring.

Listen to the full episode using the audio player below, or via Apple Podcasts, Overcast, Spotify, Stitcher, or Google Play.

In May of 2002, two of the stars of Friends, Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox, appeared on the cover of Us Weekly. The headline said, “Will They Ever Have Babies?”

Us Weekly had recently made itself over from a monthly magazine into a weekly one, a magazine that was devoted to celebrities but that didn’t adore them. Us was funny and trashy and impertinent. It had the point of view of your curious, shameless celebrity-obsessed friend. It didn’t only show famous people as they wanted to be seen, in photo shoots or primped and ready on a red carpet—it showed them pumping gas in Uggs and no makeup. And it became a genuine cultural and publishing phenomenon, because it was unlike anything else on the market.

At the time, celebrity journalism was dominated by People magazine. People had been founded in 1974, a new kind of magazine devoted to “personality journalism,” to sharing with readers what relevant public figures—celebrities, politicians, athletes, special interest subjects—were really like. An early issue had a man on the cover in a swimming pool, a man the magazine referred to as “Jerry”: It was President Gerald Ford. People was a Time Inc. magazine, and it worked hard to maintain the company’s reputation for veracity. When it ran a story, it usually had its subject’s cooperation: They sat for an interview; they posed for a photo.

People was a huge success, selling nearly 1 million copies of its very first issue. But by the late ’90s, the kind of celebrity coverage it was offering—respectful, authorized, access-oriented—was no longer new. Jann Wenner, the co-founder of Rolling Stone and the owner of Us magazine, saw an opening in the market. He wanted to turn Us, a monthly that had existed since 1977—and was originally created as a People magazine copycat—into a weekly that would compete directly with People by channeling the spirit of European celebrity weeklies such as Hello! This new magazine would focus on newsstand sales, which depend on catchy, salacious covers and make way more money for magazines than subscribers, who pay a deeply discounted rate.

So in March 2000, Us magazine became Us Weekly. But it didn’t really find itself until early 2002, when Wenner hired the editor Bonnie Fuller, who had already had success at magazines like Glamour, Cosmopolitan, and Marie Claire. Fuller’s Us was mostly photographs, lightly dappled with text. You didn’t read Us Weekly so much as look at it. It was printed on glossy paper that made it appear classier, less cheap than other tabloids at the time, and more like an upscale, “real” magazine. It’s hyperbolic covers often promised gossip the corresponding article didn’t deliver. The “Will They Ever Have Babies?” cover, for example, was teasing a pretty thoughtful reported piece on the stigma pregnant actresses face while trying to keep working, not anything concrete about Aniston’s plans to have kids.

Us’ most well-known photo spread was “Stars—They’re Just Like Us,” in which famous people were shown doing extremely regular things: going to Starbucks, staring off into space, feeding the meter. It was the perfect example of Us Weekly’s originality, of the magazine’s intuitive understanding of its readers’ deliciously ambivalent relationship to celebrity, to the way that you can love some celebrities and hate others, and want to see them both on the red carpet and with bed head.

Since the start of US Weekly, so much about the magazine industry and the logistics of celebrity has changed. Us took off before Twitter and Instagram and Snapchat and YouTube and the Kardashians. It took off before magazine sales cratered. The big couples from that time now sound like barely comprehensible early-aughts word salad: Jared Leto and Cameron Diaz, Cameron Diaz and Justin Timberlake, Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears, Britney Spears and that guy she married for 55 hours. But there’s one thing that’s stayed the same: the fascination with whether Jennifer Aniston is having a baby.

A couple of months of ago, I was at the dentist’s office and I saw a copy of the tabloid InTouch. On the cover, there was a picture of Jennifer Aniston and her ex-husband, Brad Pitt. The headline said “Brad and Jen: Wedding and a Baby!” There have been more. Also in 2018, InTouch ran an issue with the cover line “Brad Stuns Jen! Marry Me Again!” and another about Brad and Jen’s Italian honeymoon. OK! had a cover that said “Yes, I’m Pregnant—With Brad’s Baby!” And Star published an issue in November that said, “Brad and Jen: Meet Our Baby!”

What is going on? How is it still going on? Why is it still going on?

So today on Decoder Ring, an honest to God mystery: Is Jennifer Aniston having Brad Pitt’s baby?

For the answer to this question, listen to Decoder Ring’s “Sad Jennifer Aniston.”

          Reddito e quota 100, emendamento o decreto? Anche il metodo divide Lega e 5 stelle      Cache   Translate Page

A similar mural showing the populist government leaders kissing had emerged on a wall in Rome last March, when members of parliament had gathered to vote for their chamber presidents. (AP Photo/Luca Bruno)

Di reddito di cittadinanza e riforma delle pensioni non si sa nulla. O meglio, si sa quel che viene anticipato dalla stampa, gli elementi frammentari che snocciolano gli esponenti di Lega e Movimento 5 stelle (do you remember "stiamo stampando sei milioni di tessere"?), ma da mesi nero su bianco ancora non si è visto nulla. Ma ecco che nei prossimi giorni la cortina fumogena potrebbe diradarsi. Perché il Carroccio spinge per mettere le due misure dentro la manovra, a partire dal passaggio al Senato, previsto la prossima settimana dopo il via libera alla Camera.

Grande è la confusione sotto il cielo. Perché a Montecitorio il voto in Commissione procede a tappe forzate, per licenziare in tempo il testo, ma il percorso è accidentato e i rallentamenti all'ordine del giorno. Un testo che, nel frattempo, è diventato superato prima ancora di essere approvato, essendo chiara l'intenzione del governo di riformulare il testo in seconda lettura, nel tentativo di venire incontro alle richieste dell'Europa.

"Noi siamo pronti", spiega il quartier generale di via Bellerio. Il ragionamento è semplice: infilando tutto in legge di stabilità si avrebbe un duplice vantaggio. Anzitutto si eviterebbero due decreti da portare in Consiglio dei minitri agli sgoccioli di dicembre o ai primi di gennaio, con relativo iter parlamentare. I precedenti in questo senso – si pensi a sicurezza e prescrizione – non lasciano dormire sonni tranquilli. In secondo luogo si darebbe subito un segnale concreto a Bruxelles. Perché il testo conterrebbe già i risparmi (dovrebbero essere 4/4,5 miliardi sul totale dei sedici), che uniti a un rafforzamento delle risorse sugli investimenti offrirebbero all'Europa un testo con nuovi saldi senza dover riscrivere il Def, ipotesi esclusa da Matteo Salvini non più di qualche giorno fa.

Se le camice verdi hanno il piede sull'acceleratore, i colleghi 5 stelle premono il freno. L'ipotesi di un inserimento in manovra non convince Luigi Di Maio e i suoi. Il reddito è una misura più complessa e di difficile scrittura rispetto a quota 100. E per renderlo operativo sarebbe necessaria l'emanazione di una serie di decreti ministeriali estremamente complicati. La paura è che tra errori e ipotetiche "manine" ne esca fuori un pasticcio. "Prendiamoci più tempo, ma facciamo un decreto fatto bene, con dentro tutto", spiegano fonti stellate. Con il sottinteso che il doppio passaggio parlamentare consentirebbe di limare eventuali imperfezioni. C'è anche un versante più politico. Quello di voler sforbiciare il meno possibile i 9 miliardi al momento stanziati per la misura, facendo ricadere il grosso dell'onere sulle pensioni leghiste. "E questo adesso è difficile da tenere sotto controllo, con una finanziaria da varare. Dopo avremmo più margini di manovra".

Sembra invece ormai pronta l'intesa sulle pensioni d'oro. Un accordo al ribasso sui desiderata di partenza dei 5 stelle, perché prevederà un contributo di solidarietà a salire sugli importi superiori ai 90mila euro l'anno, e per due o tre anni. Una sorta di "patrimonialina a tempo" sui super pensionati più che un taglio vero e proprio.

"Grande è la confusione sotto il cielo", diceva Mao Tze-tung. Ma aggiungeva: "Perciò la situazione è favorevole". Quasi un metodo di lavoro, se tagliato sull'Italia di oggi.


          Chi è Settimino Mineo, il Padrino erede di Totò Riina che voleva rilanciare Cosa Nostra      Cache   Translate Page      

Quando Giovanni Falcone, nel 1984, lo interrogò nel corso del maxiprocesso contro la mafia rispose: "Non so di che parla, io vendo gioielli, cado dalle nuvole". Il giudice, però, non credette alle sue parole. Alla fine del procedimento, Settimino Mineo fu condannato a cinque anni di carcere. Dopo più di tre decenni - e a qualche anno da una condanna a 11 anni, inflittagli nel 2006 - l'ottantenne gioielliere, capo del mandamento di Pagliarelli, è stato fermato di nuovo. Questa volta con l'accusa di essere l'erede di Totò Riina, il nuovo capo di Cosa Nostra.

VIDEO - Mafia, colpo alla nuova Cupola. Arrestato l'erede di Riina, il boss Settimo Mineo

Non si è mai pentito di essere un affiliato alla mafia: nei primi anni '80 Settimino Mineo riuscì a sfuggire a un agguato nel quale morì il fratello Giuseppe. Solo un anno prima era stato assassinato un altro fratello, Antonino. In tanti anni di carcere non ha mai ammesso alcun reato, anche se il suo nome era stato fatto dai collaboratori di giustizia. Di lui parlò, infatti, già negli anni '70, il primo pentito di mafia, Leonardo Vitale, ucciso da Cosa Nostra nel 1984. E a lui fecero riferimento anche Tommaso Buscetta e Salvatore Contorno.

In gioventù aveva tentato di sfuggire alla giustizia e, ancora oggi, cercava schivare in tutti i modi le indagini. Non aveva un cellulare, temeva le intercettazioni, evitava anche di spostarsi in macchina. Eppure a portare al suo fermo, e a quello di altre 45 persone nell'operazione Cupola 2.0, è stata proprio una conversazione intercettata in un'auto. Grazie allo scambio di battute tra il boss di Villabate Francesco Colletti - anche lui fermato dalla Dda di Palermo - e i suoi interlocutori, gli inquirenti hanno scoperto che la commissione provinciale di Cosa Nostra, che non si riuniva da 25 anni, era stata convocata per il 29 maggio. E che, dopo la morte di Totò Riina, Mineo era stato designato nuovo vertice della Cupola.

VIDEO - Le intercettazioni che hanno inchiodato i boss

Il procuratore Lo Voi: "Volevano ristabilire le regole dopo gli arresti e gli sfilacciamenti subiti"

"È stata la prima grande riunione della rinnovata commissione provinciale di Cosa nostra, nella quale si trattava di tornare a ristabilire le regole dopo gli arresti e lo sfilacciamento subiti". A parlare del vertice tra mafiosi del 29 maggio 2018 è Francesco Lo Voi, procuratore di Palermo.

Il loro obiettivo, ha spiegato il magistrato, era la rinascita dell'organizzazione dopo la morte di Totò Riina, avvenuta nel novembre 2017. "Che fosse una riunione di commissione - ha aggiunto Lo Voi - lo si ricava dal fatto che importanti soggetti di Cosa Nostra, benché presenti, non avevano avuto diritto a partecipare alla riunione. Quindi c'erano dei soggetti che seppure capi famiglia, erano rimasti fuori, perché potevano partecipare solo i capi mandamento. Quindi un ritorno alle regole, al rispetto del territorio, ai principi su cui si deve basare la comunicazione tra i mandamenti, e per certi versi sembra quasi di rileggere le dichiarazioni rese a suoi tempo da Tommaso Buscetta".

Cafiero De Raho: "La designazione di Mineo dimostra che la commissione di Cosa Nostra da Corleone è tornata a spostarsi a Palermo. Non si parla di merito, si nomina il più anziano"

Il procuratore nazionale Antimafia, Federico Cafiero De Raho spiega perché l'operazione Cupola 2.0 è particolarmente importante: "Per anni la commissione di Cosa nostra è stata sbilanciata sulla figura di Riina. Col suo arresto tutto si è fermato, la commissione non ha funzionato più. Dopo la morte del padrino corleonese i capi hanno sentito l'esigenza di muoversi e ridisciplinare l'organizzazione - ha affermato nel corso della conferenza stampa - La designazione di Mineo al vertice significa che la commissione è tornata a spostarsi a Palermo, dopo decenni di strapotere corleonese e che Palermo è tornata centrale". Il capo della Dna ha descritto una mafia che tenta di evitare i conflitti interni. "Si designa il più anziano come vertice - ha aggiunto - non si parla di merito. Nessuno usa il proprio carisma, nessuno si sente migliore degli altri. Si vogliono superare gli accordi a due o a tre".


          Al carcere di Rebibbia si gioca 'La partita con papà': "Con i nostri figli sembra di stare fuori da qui"      Cache   Translate Page      

Sono le 9.30 del mattino. Al cancello del carcere di Rebibbia, a Roma, mamme e figli fanno la fila per entrare. Dietro le mura spesse del penitenziario, mariti e padri allacciano gli scarpini. Il primo dicembre non è solo giorno di visita. Come in altre 57 carceri italiane, si gioca "La partita con papà", organizzata da Bambinisenzasbarre in collaborazione con il Ministero della Giustizia.

Un momento che, fuori dal carcere, non avrebbe forse niente di eccezionale. Ma che qui, dietro le sbarre, assume un significato particolare: "Qua è sempre la stessa giornata, un giorno vale l'altro - spiega Fabrizio - Iniziative di questo genere ti danno la possibilità di vivere una giornata diversa". Ha 49 anni, gli ultimi dei quali trascorsi dentro per rapina. Mentre parla abbraccia la sua piccola Zoe, che di anni ne ha 7 e ha gli stessi occhi del padre: "Più sto vicino a lei e più sto bene. È normale, è la mia principessa. Penso che ogni papà abbia la sua principessa".

Hp

La principessa di Mauro, invece, si chiama Nancy, e deve ancora compiere un anno: "È nata quando ero ai domiciliari, poi mi hanno riportato dentro per spaccio di droga e traffico d'armi. Vederla sorridere è una gioia al cuore, è l'unica cosa positiva della vita mia". Accanto a lui, a bordo campo, c'è anche Besso, assieme alla moglie e alla piccola Sara. Fine pena a maggio 2019, la partita con papà è un'occasione per respirare in anticipo quel che sarà tra pochi mesi: "Con loro pare che stai fuori, e non dentro al carcere". In campo intanto, Thomas segna un goal e corre ad esultare in braccio a papà Giordano. A fine partita sorridono di fronte alla telecamera: "Lui ha 6 anni, quella piccola (Azzurra) ne ha uno e mezzo. Per noi padri-detenuti questo è un momento straordinario, che ci lascia un'emozione che porteremo dentro fino alle nostre celle".

Hp

Mauro, Besso, Giordano e Fabrizio sono solo alcuni dei circa 20 padri-detenuti della terza casa circondariale di Rebibbia, quella a custodia attenuta. I loro reati vanno dallo spaccio alla rapina, fino al traffico d'armi. Errori e colpe che, però, sottolinea la direttrice Annunziata Passannante, "non devono ricadere sui figli". "Il carcere deve essere utile perché deve rieducare, sennò non serve a niente. Se abbiamo paura non andiamo da nessuna parte. La paura va combattuta col bene: penso che tutti i bambini vengono al mondo per fare una partita, e quella col papà è la principale".

          Hong Kong è la città più visitata al mondo nel 2017. Roma solo 15esima      Cache   Translate Page      

Notizie in chiaroscuro per l'Italia dalla classifica delle 100 città più visitate al mondo nel 2017 di Euromonitor che vede in testa Hong Kong (con 27.8 milioni di arrivi internazionali), Bangkok e Londra. Le 4 italiane presenti sono infatti tutte in discesa nel ranking pur con numeri assoluti in lieve crescita: Roma slitta dal 12/o al 15/o posto, Milano scende al 32/o, Venezia al 41/o e Firenze al 47/o. La Capitale (9.5 milioni di arrivi) e Milano (6.3) assieme non raggiungono i numeri di Londra (19) e eguagliano appena quelli di Parigi (15.8).

Lo stesso trend, secondo le previsioni dello studio di Euromonitor International che l'ANSA pubblica in anteprima, è previsto anche nel 2018. Roma salirà a 9.7 milioni di visitatori ma perderà altre 3 posizioni in classifica scendendo 18/a a causa della crescita esplosiva di metropoli asiatiche Guangzhou e Delhi e della turca Antalya.

Stesso discorso a Milano, che perderà due posizioni pur con arrivi che saliranno a 6.5 milioni, ma anche a Venezia e Firenze.

"L'Italia - spiega Wouter Geerts, analista di Euromonitor International - ha un turismo molto "maturo" e, grazie a città iconiche, numerosissimi siti Unesco e ai suoi leggendari cibi e vini, tende sempre a presentare perfomance sostenute. Nei periodi di alta stagione purtroppo si crea il problema del sovraffollamento specialmente a Roma e Venezia che crea disagi ai turisti e ai residenti. Questo rimarrà una sfida per gli anni a venire con la città lagunare che è diventata uno dei più chiari esempi di città dove si fatica a gestire una crescita sostenibile del turismo"


          Il presepio di Frate Indovino al monastero di Santa Chiara di Napoli. Padre Acacio: "Vi svelo il successo della nostra opera"      Cache   Translate Page      

Padre Acacio ha 42 anni, è brasiliano e ha un sorriso genuino. Nella cornice del monastero di Santa Chiara, a Napoli, presenta l'ultima opera di Frate Indovino: il presepio emozionale, il primo completamente ecocompatibile, aperto al pubblico fino al 6 gennaio. E svela ad HuffPost il segreto del successo del calendario più amato dagli italiani: "Alla fine della guerra, l'Italia aveva bisogno di un punto di riferimento, c'era la necessità di mettere in comune alcuni valori per ripartire: Frate Indovino arriva per creare coesione e offre l'opportunità a tutti di ricostruire".

Ripartire dai valori, non solo quelli cristiani. Nel 2018 come nel 1946, anno della prima edizione dell'almanacco. A quasi 75 anni dall'esordio, Frate Indovino è diventato un simbolo e a dimostrarlo non c'è solo il numero delle copie vendute, passate dalle duemila ai 5 milioni. Ma anche dalla filosofia espressa, immutata nel tempo e fondata su due punti cardine: il primo è rappresentato dalle opere caritative e di promozione sociale, vissute come vocazione, sia in Italia che nella ultra centennale Missione in Amazzonia; il secondo, invece, basato sulla divulgazione della cultura, sentita come vera e propria missione.

Le missioni in Amazzonia, terra di cui Padre Acacio è originario, sono il frutto delle opere di beneficenza di Frate Indovino: "Il calendario - racconta il Rettore del Santuario della Spogliazione di Assisi - si è trasformato subito in uno scambio di beni, di valori. Perché i frati avevano l'intenzione di offrire qualcosa di prezioso alla gente. E le persone hanno permesso a Frate Indovino di mettere in comune questo bene. Perché con le offerte dei benefattori, sono state compiute tante opere di bene in Amazzonia: scuole e ospedali, ad esempio. E io lo posso testimoniare in prima persona, perché vengo da lì".

Ma Frate Indovino non è solo il calendario, ci tiene a sottolineare Padre Acacio. È anche il "presepio emozionale", si diceva. Giunto alla sua terza edizione, è la prima volta che "lascia" l'Umbria e approda al monastero di Santa Chiara, che già da solo meriterebbe una visita. Realizzato con "materiale povero" (legno e cartone stampato a colori), riproduce un tipico villaggio medievale dell'Appennino umbro. Si può visitare camminando all'interno perché è quasi a grandezza naturale. Dentro sono rappresentati i mestieri e le attività del tempo, dal frantoio al mulino, alle botteghe dello speziale, del vasaio alla tessitrice fino alle lavandaie, e si entrerà all'interno dei bivacchi dei pastori, e nella casa dell'ortolano. Un percorso che fa vivere a pieno lo spirito natalizio. Una sfida in una città, Napoli, che è la patria del presepio, vinta da Frate Indovino.


          Donatella Versace: "Nel nostro Paese, le donne faticano ad esprimersi. La politica italiana? Non commento l'ignoranza"      Cache   Translate Page      

"Starò qui, sono legata mani e piedi. La Holding vuole assolutamente il nostro know how italiano", questa la dichiarazione di intenti di Donatella Versace in un'intervista a La Stampa, spiega in cui ha spiegato la decisione di cedere il controllo dell'azienda, facendolo confluire nel polo del lusso Capri Holdings (che comprende anche Michael Kors e Jimmy Choo).

La Versace non ha parlato soltanto dell'azienda, ma anche degli aspetti più personali. Immancabile un richiamo al rapporto col fratello Gianni Versace.

A lungo non sono riuscita a parlare di lui perché è morto in modo brutale. Fosse stata una malattia me ne sarei fatta una ragione. Ma ora mi fa piacere ricordare il lato giocoso, la complicità del nostro rapporto.

E di suo fratello Donatella Versace parla anche quando gli chiedono cosa ci sia nel suo armadio.

Ho due armadi. Uno con tutto quello che uso oggi. L'altro con i vestiti del cuore che non metterei mai più. Il mio preferito è un abito che mi fece fare Gianni in pelle nera e strass senza maniche tipo chemisier, con un collettino bianco. Non sono legata al passato, preferisco parlare di come mi vesto oggi [...] Non parlo di come mi vedo tra vent'anni, amo il presente che mi serve per costruire il futuro.

La donna simbolo della moda italiana viene interpellata anche sul suo rapporto con la casa e le faccende domestiche.

Non cucino mai, non mi interessa, la mia passione è scrivere. Non prendo appunti sul telefonino, scrivo su un libriccino e descrivo pure come vorrei i modelli... Poi chiamo i ragazzi che disegnano e spiego anche gli accostamenti di colore. Forse è un retaggio della mia formazione classica. Al liceo facevo i temi di italiano a tutti, di contro detestavo i numeri, quindi gli altri mi passavano i compiti di matematica. Poi leggo moltissimo, tutti i giornali la mattina sull'Ipad. E tanti libri. L'ultimo è "Becoming" di Michelle Obama.

La Versace parla poi del suo rapporto coi social network e con i più giovani, ma anche del nostro Paese.

Mi interessano i giovani e chi ha le idee chiare e qualcosa da dire. Bisogna uscire della cerchia delle persone che ti proteggono per andare verso il prossimo e capire quello che sta succedendo [...] La gente scappa dal nostro Paese perché quel che sta facendo il governo non aiuta il nostro bellissimo Paese, i politici lo stanno rovinando. Non si può commentare l'ignoranza.

Si passa poi a parlare del rapporto della creativa con la musica.

Influenza sempre la mia creatività. Negli anni '90 ero amica di Prince e di Madonna, ora mi piace l'hip hop, i testi mi fanno riflettere. I miei preferiti sono The Migos, Grace e Nick Minaj.

L'ammirazione per le "donne forti" chiude l'intervista.

Adoro Michelle Obama, ma tutte le donne sono forti. A certe però occorre farlo capire. Le donne in Italia hanno una grande forza inespressa, devono farsi sentire.

          Luigi Di Maio e la sorella firmano la messa in liquidazione dell'azienda di famiglia      Cache   Translate Page      

Luigi Di Maio e la sorella hanno firmato la messa in liquidazione dell'Ardima Srl, l'azienda di famiglia al centro delle polemiche dopo il servizio de Le Iene sui lavoratori in nero. Nominato liquidatore "con tutti i poteri di legge Di Maio Giuseppe", il fratello del vicepremier. Dall'atto si evincono "le ragioni per le quali risulta conveniente e opportuno sciogliere anticipatamente la società e porla in liquidazione. In particolare - risulta all'Adnkronos - la prolungata inattività rende necessario procedere allo scioglimento anticipato".

Il vicepremier pentastellato aveva dichiarato in un'intervista al Fatto Quotidiano di essere determinati a chiudere con l'azienda che la madre gli aveva ceduto. A chi gli chiedeva se fosse a conoscenza di eventuali debiti con l'Agenzia delle entrate quando è entrato in possesso delle quote o di possibili cartelle esattoriali pendenti di Equitalia ha risposto:

Non lo so, se ne è occupato il commercialista. Io all'epoca ho solo accettato la donazione di mia madre. L'attività imprenditoriale della Srl è cessata da oltre un anno e la stessa sarà posta in liquidazione (..) non potendomi ora occupare del controllo di legalità e della revisione contabile postumi delle aziende di famiglia, io direi di finirla qui perché devo occuparmi dei problemi del Paese.

Se suo padre volesse potrebbe aderire alla cosiddetta pace fiscale, dal momento che - si legge sul Fatto - gli sono state notificate 33 cartelle esattoriali e ha un debito totale di 176.226,83 euro, ma il vicepremier assicura che non lo farà. È stato proprio il genitore ad assicurarglielo. Il quotidiano però spiega che alcune cartelle, quelle inferiori a 1000 euro, si estingueranno lo stesso:

A mia precisa domanda, mio padre ha risposto che non aderirà alla rottamazione. Non so se alcune cartelle si estingueranno, ma resta il fatto che un debito di circa 180.000 euro questo non migliorerebbe in maniera significativa la situazione di mio padre.

          Preso Settimino Mineo, "Padrino" di Cosa Nostra. A Palermo 46 arresti nella nuova Cupola      Cache   Translate Page      

Quarantasei arresti a Palermo per quella che viene considerata la nuova Cupola di Cosa Nostra, preso anche Settimino Mineo, 80 anni, considerato il nuovo capo dell'organizzazione mafiosa.

Cosa nostra, dopo anni, aveva ricostruito la storica Cupola. Emerge da una indagine della dda di Palermo che ha disposto il fermo di 46 persone tra cui il nuovo capo dell'organizzazione. Il fermo è stato eseguito dai carabinieri del comando provinciale. Le accuse per gli indagati sono di associazione mafiosa, estorsione aggravata, intestazione fittizia di beni, porto abusivo di armi, danneggiamento a mezzo incendio, concorso esterno in associazione mafiosa.

Dall'inchiesta emerge che Settimino Mineo, 80 anni, ufficialmente gioielliere, un "curriculum" mafioso di decenni, è il nuovo capo di Cosa nostra. Dopo la morte del boss Totò Riina, sarebbe stato designato al vertice della commissione provinciale che da anni ormai aveva smesso di riunirsi, segno che i clan avevano scelto di tornare alla struttura unitaria di un tempo. Già condannato a 5 anni al maxi processo istruito da Giovanni Falcone, fu riarrestato 12 anni fa per poi tornare in libertà dopo una condanna a 11 anni.

L'inchiesta è stata coordinata dal procuratore di Palermo Francesco Lo Voi, dall'aggiunto Salvatore De Luca e dai pm Francesca Mazzocco, Amelia Luise, Dario Scaletta, Gaspare Spedale e Bruno Brucoli e ricostruisce gli assetti dei clan palermitani di Porta Nuova, Poagliarelli, Bagheria, Villabate e Misilmeri.

L'anziano padrino di cui già il pentito Tommaso Buscetta fece il nome agli inquirenti, come è emerso dalle indagini dei carabinieri, aveva il terrore di essere intercettato e non usava telefoni. La Commissione provinciale di Cosa nostra, che da anni ormai aveva smesso di riunirsi, sarebbe stata riconvocata il 29 maggio scorso: un summit che riporta alla vecchia mafia. Come ispirata alla tradizione sembra essere l'organizzazione della nuova commissione provinciale guidata da Mineo.


          3000 Si e un manifesto, da Torino una sveglia al governo      Cache   Translate Page      

Dodici associazioni d'impresa, che complessivamente rappresentano 13 milioni di lavoratori e oltre il 65% del Pil, dopo le manifestazioni in piazza hanno deciso di sottoscrivere un manifesto da inviare al governo per chiedere il rilancio degli investimenti infrastrutturali e soprattutto la realizzazione dell'Alta velocità Torino-Lione: "Sarebbe inconcepibile – scrivono - fermare i cantieri delle Grandi Opere. Bloccare l'opera costerebbe più che realizzarla. La Tav è un'opportunità di crescita per l'Italia".

Il capo dei "ribelli" è Vincenzo Boccia, il numero uno di Confindustria, che dal palco delle Ogr, le ex Grandi Officine Riparazioni di Torino, dove si riparavano i treni dalla metà dell'800, invita il premier Giuseppe Conte a dimettersi se non convincerà Luigi Di Maio e Matteo Salvini a fare un passo indietro sulla manovra "rinunciando a due miliardi ciascuno". Se ciò non avverrà l'Italia andrà verso la procedura di inflazione. Poi dice al governo: "La stagione degli alibi è finita. Se siamo qui è perché la nostra pazienza è arrivata al limite. Il messaggio è chiaro sì alla Tav Torino-Lione, perché le infrastrutture sono un'idea di società, includono, sono un'idea di visione del Paese, centrale tra Europa e Mediterraneo, aperta a est e a ovest".

È questo l'urlo di tremila imprenditori non solo di Confindustria ma anche di Casartigiani, Ance, Confapi, Confesercenti, Confagricoltura, Legacoop, Confartigianato, Confcooperative, Confcommercio, Cna e Agci, arrivati da tutta Italia a Torino, città simbolo. Ma viene sottolineato più e più volte durante l'incontro che la questione è nazionale, non è locale per questo Boccia è molto critico nei confronti del governo che ha deciso di convocare per il 5 dicembre solo i rappresentanti locali delle imprese e - spiega il presidente di Confindustria - "questo la dice lunga sulla visione logistica di questo esecutivo".

Nel documento di tre pagine da presentare al premier Giuseppe Conte viene ribadito che "le Imprese Italiane sostengono da sempre l'importanza dei Corridoi Europei e delle Grandi Opere che li realizzano, in quanto una grande Rete Comune di infrastrutture logistiche e di trasporto è uno strumento essenziale per l'integrazione economica e sociale dell'Unione e nell'Unione Europea. Le Grandi Opere sono essenziali ad un efficace rilancio della nostra politica infrastrutturale basato su sostenibilità e competitività". E poi ancora: "I Corridoi Europei e le connessioni rappresentano la struttura portante sulla quale si è costruita, nel tempo, una strategia infrastrutturale e logistica capace di sfruttare la centralità dell'Italia negli scambi euro-mediterranei e le sue straordinarie opportunità di sviluppo, in un contesto economico sempre più orientato alla globalizzazione degli scambi e alla competitività internazionale".

Quindi vengono elencate le grandi opere da realizzare: Torino-Lione, Brennero, Terzo Valico, Brescia-Padova 2, Pedemontane Veneta e Lombarda, Direttrici Tirrenica e Adriatica NordSud. Le principali ragioni a sostegno della loro realizzazione riguardano: l'integrazione economica del nostro Paese su scala soprattutto europea, nella quale si sviluppa quasi il 60% dell'export e dell'import italiano, cioè quasi 500 miliardi di euro su 850 che passano attraverso le Alpi! La promozione di un sistema dei trasporti centrato su sostenibilità e intermodalità, con una maggiore quota di trasporto su ferro sulle lunghe distanze, più economico, più rapido, più sicuro e più sostenibile, la crescita economica e le migliaia di nuovi posti di lavoro che derivano da investimenti ad alta redditività non solo nella fase di cantiere, ma anche a regime, perché connettono il nostro Paese con l'Europa e col Mondo, offrono agli operatori economici accessi più agevoli ai mercati di riferimento, migliorandone efficienza e competitività, e rendono il Sistema Paese più competitivo e attrattivo per gli investitori internazionali e i flussi turistici.

"Per tutte queste ragioni – si legge - la vera posta in gioco sulla Torino-Lione e sulle altre Grandi Opere Strategiche è soprattutto la realizzazione di una grande opportunità di crescita per l'Italia, una leva per una trasformazione economica e sociale in grado di aumentare la qualità dello sviluppo e di garantire il benessere delle future generazioni. Vogliamo e sogniamo un'Italia protagonista, forte e competitiva, con un ruolo centrale e non periferico in Europa e nel Mondo".

Durante l'incontro delle imprese vengono anche elencati i costi. La quota di finanziamento più rilevante per coprire il costo della sezione transfrontaliera sarà a carico dell'Unione Europea, disposta ad aumentare il proprio contributo dall'attuale 40% al 50%, e quella a carico dello Stato Italiano è già stata tutta impegnata programmaticamente e non avrebbe impatti negativi sui saldi di finanza pubblica. A conti fatti, completare la Torino-Lione costerebbe meno che non realizzarla, a causa della restituzione dei finanziamenti ricevuti, della perdita di opere già realizzate non più utilizzabili, dei costi della rescissione di contratti già sottoscritti e di quelli per la messa in sicurezza, il ripristino del territorio allo status quo ante e l'adeguamento, comunque parziale, dell'attuale Linea Ferroviaria Storica rispetto agli standard europei.

Senza la Torino-Lione il trasporto di merci su tutto il Versante Ovest dell'Arco Alpino diventerebbe meno competitivo e più costoso, con impatti negativi sugli scambi con tutti i Paesi collegati dal Corridoio Mediterraneo (Francia, Spagna, Portogallo, Isole Britanniche, Belgio e Lussemburgo), attualmente pari a 205 miliardi di euro (di cui 81 miliardi solo con la Francia). Al 2030 si ridurrebbe il transito stradale di quasi 1.000.000 veicoli pesanti l'anno, con una riduzione di emissioni inquinanti stimate in 3 milioni di tonnellate equivalenti di CO2, pari a quelle di una città di 300.000 abitanti. Perché l'entrata in funzione della Torino-Lione è in grado di avvicinare l'Italia all'Europa, collegando Milano a Parigi in 4 ore e mezza, a Barcellona in 6 ore, a Londra in 7 ore, con importanti impatti positivi per tutta la filiera turistica. Perché il progetto, nel periodo più intenso di costruzione 2020-2027, può stimolare, direttamente e indirettamente, una crescita economica di 11,3 miliardi di euro che, al netto dei costi di investimento, equivale a quasi 1 miliardo l'anno, con un'occupazione aggiuntiva di circa 5.000 unità l'anno.

Infine "infrastrutture come la Torino-Lione, con i loro contenuti di tecnologia e innovazione, di efficienza e sicurezza, sono investimenti in grado di generare crescita e occupazione nel medio lungo periodo, aumentando la produttività totale dell'intera economia nazionale e il benessere della collettività. Perché di tutto questo è convinta la maggioranza del Paese, che per quasi il 60% è favorevole alla Torino-Lione e alle altre Grandi Opere Strategiche". Di certo lo sono gli imprenditori, quel momento produttivo che fa opposizione al governo.


          Una legge per la tutela dei centri storici      Cache   Translate Page

Nel nostro paese c'è sempre bisogno di fare chiarezza, specie in ambito giurisprudenziale. Prendiamo il caso dei centri storici, che secondo il dettato del Codice dei Beni culturali dovrebbero essere inclusi di diritto tra i beni culturali. L'articolo 10, comma 4, lettera g, identifica come beni culturali: "Le pubbliche piazze, vie, strade e altri spazi aperti urbani di interesse artistico o storico".

Il cuore delle nostre città è rappresentato dai centri storici, vale a dire dai nuclei abitativi intorno ai quali si sono sviluppate nei secoli, e in alcuni casi nei millenni, le città così come oggi le vediamo e conosciamo. Sono luoghi pregni di storia, nelle cui vie, strade e piazze convivono in armonia palazzi, chiese, monumenti, musei, parchi, alberi.

Spesso, però, questi cuori pulsanti di identità civica subiscono veri e propri oltraggi alla loro storia e attentati alla loro armonia, come accade – per esempio – con la barbarica demolizione di palazzi antichi e successiva edificazione di fabbricati ultramoderni, che oltre a risultare incompatibili col contesto modificano la preesistente trama viaria storica. Quel che è peggio, ad autorizzare simili operazioni speculative sono proprio i pubblici poteri, troppe volte dimentichi delle leggi di tutela a causa del diffuso pressapochismo amministrativo.

Per arginare questa devastante amnesia è intervenuta la benemerita Associazione Bianchi Bandinelli, che dai primissimi anni novanta opera nel campo della conoscenza, tutela e valorizzazione dei beni culturali. Il 12 novembre scorso, in occasione del convegno romano "Il diritto alla città storica", è stata formulata una valida proposta di legge in materia di tutela dei centri storici, dei nuclei e dei complessi edilizi storici.

Un pool di urbanisti e giuristi, presieduto da Vezio De Lucia, ha tradotto le disposizioni del Codice dei Beni culturali in una norma di civiltà, i cui propositi sono riassunti nell'articolo 1:

I centri storici, i nuclei e i complessi edilizi identificati nell'insediamento storico quale risulta dal nuovo catasto del 1939, costituiscono la più ampia testimonianza, materiale e immateriale, avente valore di civiltà, del patrimonio culturale della nazione e la loro tutela è finalizzata a preservare la memoria della comunità nazionale nelle plurali identità di cui si compone e ad assicurarne la conservazione e la pubblica fruizione anche al fine di valorizzare e promuovere l'uso residenziale, sia pubblico che privato, per i servizi e per l'artigianato.

Sei articoli che, con estrema chiarezza, riconoscono ai centri storici valenza di beni culturali d'insieme, meritevoli di specifica disciplina conservativa.

Questa proposta di legge rappresenta un capolavoro giuridico e se – come si auspica – otterrà la dovuta considerazione istituzionale e verrà promulgata sarà in grado di tutelare tangibilmente le nostre città storiche con tutti i loro caratteri tipologici e morfologici e, soprattutto, di favorire la loro trasmissione alle generazioni future (che non è per nulla scontata).

La tutela della nostra preziosa e sacrosanta eredità culturale è una questione di principio. Di principio costituzionale, per essere precisi. "La Repubblica... tutela il paesaggio e il patrimonio storico e artistico della Nazione", recita l'articolo 9 della Costituzione.

Quante altre città dovranno assistere allo sventramento dei propri centri storici? Quanti edifici obbrobriosi dovranno spuntare e quanto altro cemento dovrà soffocare le inestimabili testimonianze del nostro passato prima che sia promulgata questa piccola, ma opportuna ed efficace, legge? Tanto opportuna da non necessitare neppure di un regolamento applicativo. Tanto efficace da essere attuata nel momento stesso della sua promulgazione.


          Toninelli assicura: "Genova tornerà più forte in pochi mesi. Al massimo anni". In rete si scatena l'ironia      Cache   Translate Page      

Danilo Toninelli e Genova, un rapporto complicato. Dopo la gaffe sulla ricostruzione del ponte Morandi ("dove poter giocare e mangiare", assicurò), il ministro delle Infrastrutture è tornato sul tema, parlando a margine di una riunione dei ministri dei Trasporti a Bruxelles. "Come governo - ha affermato Toninelli - abbiamo dato tutto quello che potevamo dare a Genova, che in pochi mesi, al massimo anni, tornerà ad essere più forte di prima anche e soprattutto a partire dal porto". In pochi mesi, al massimo anni.

VIDEO - L'ironia della rete: "Corro i 100 metri in pochi secondi, al massimo minuti"

La frase non è sfuggita agli utenti e su Twitter, come spesso capita in questi casi, molti hanno ironizzato. "Dipenderà dalla durata di questo governo", fa notare un utente; "No, davvero: Toninelli è molto meglio di Zelig!", gli fa eco un altro facendo riferimento alle altre gaffes del ministro.

"Toninelli vuole prendere il posto di Grillo come comico", scrive un altro. E qualcuno lancia l'hashtag #AlMassimo, sottolineando la differenza tra anni e mesi.


          I Renzi accusati di aver dato lavoro in nero, Tiziano replica: "Erano solo pagamenti in contanti"      Cache   Translate Page      

"Sì, ho lavorato in nero per i Renzi". Ad affermarlo è Andrea Santoni, italiano che oggi vive a Londra, a Circo Massimo su Radio Capital. "Andava bene a me, andava bene a lui, era tutto a nero. Prendevo i giornali, una volta c'era Matteo, una volta c'era Tiziano", continua Santoni. La vicenda - alla quale Tiziano Renzi ha replicato sostenendo che si trattava di pagamenti in contanti e non in nero - è stata messa in luce dal quotidiano La Verità. Nell'articolo si sosteneva che Renzi e il padre avevano usato lavoratori in nero per diffondere i giornali. Un'accusa, questa, simile a quella mossa da un servizio de Le Iene anche a Antonio Di Maio, padre del vicepremier.

I pentastellati puntano il dito contro Tiziano Renzi e, in una nota, si chiedono: "Siamo curiosi di sapere come adesso il Pd commenterà la vicenda venuta fuori sui lavoratori senza contratto gestiti da Matteo Renzi e suo padre, quando li mandavano a distribuire giornali a nero nella loro Firenze".

Tiziano Renzi, intanto annuncia una querela contro il direttore del quotidiano: "Era pagamento in contanti, non in nero: una semplice differenza che in sede di tribunale sarà facilmente dimostrabile. Ho dato infatti mandato ai legali di procedere contro il signor Belpietro. Il tempo sarà galantuomo contro questa ennesima schifezza come lo è stato con il signor Travaglio e mi auguro lo sarà con le altre cause già aperte contro il signor Belpietro. Stupisce che questi signori, nonostante i tanti procedimenti aperti e le condanne, continuino a pontificare a reti unificate contribuendo a creare un clima di odio e di fake news".

          Fundamental Analysis of EUR/USD for December 4, 2018      Cache   Translate Page      

EUR/USD has been quite volatile and corrective while residing inside the corrective range of 1.1200 to 1.1500 area for a few days in a row. Despite the strong likelihood of a rate hike by the Federal Reserve and persistent standoff between Italy and the EU, EUR managed to gain and sustain certain momentum, leading to more indecision and volatility.

This week EUR has been quite firm amid economic reports published recently. As a result, the currency gain impulsive momentum inside the bearish trend. There are certain measures taken by European Union today to ban money laundering on digital revenues. Moreover, the EU provided certain time for Italy to prepare a better budget proposal with a view of reducing debts than in the previous version, which whas been rejected earlier. Today French Government Budget Balance report was published with a slight increase to -87.0B from the previous figure of -87.1B and Spanish Unemployment Change report was published with a notable decrease to -1.8k from the previous figure of 52.2k which was expected to be at 34.2k. Moreover, along with ECOFIN Meeting being held today, PPI report was published with an increase to 0.8% from the previous value of 0.6% which was expected to decrease to 0.5%.

On the other hand, FED has been quite neutral. Some officials stated that they would not respond to every rise and fall in stocks that confused the market sentiment ahead of a rate hike this month. Nevertheless, this was bearish for USD. This week US ISM Manufacturing PMI report was published with a slight increase to 59.3 from the previous figure of 57.7 which was expected to decrease to 57.5 and Construction Spending report was published unchanged at -0.1% which was expected to increase to 0.4%. The mixed economic data confused the market, leading to certain weakness of USD and impulsive EUR gains today. FOMC member Williams is yet to speak about the upcoming interest rate and monetary policy decisions. Ahead of NFP this week which is expected to reveal mixed readings as well, USD is expected to be quite indecisive and slow with the progress ahead of the rate hike this month.

Meanwhile, further volatility and correction is expected in this pair. EUR found support from economic reports. USD is gaining ground with the sentimental bias ahead of Rate Hike this month. After NFP, the market will be able to express sentiment in this pair, leading to a certain trend direction before the year end.

Now let us look at the technical view. The price is currently residing below 1.1430-1.1500 resistance area while being in the bearish trend with certain volatility. As the price remains below 1.1500 area with a daily close, the bearish bias is expected to continue in the pair with a target towards 1.1200 area in the coming days. On the other hand, if the price breaks above 1.1500 with a daily close, the bearish bias is expected to convert to bullish resulting to price pushing higher towards 1.1600-50 area in the future.

SUPPORT: 1.1200, 1.1300

RESISTANCE: 1.1430, 1.1500, 1.1600-50

BIAS: BEARISH

MOMENTUM: VOLATILE

          Italian authorities will present the EU a new draft budget      Cache   Translate Page      

analytics5c0667cdbf15c.jpg

Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte said that the authorities will submit to the European Union a new draft state budget for 2019 to replace the draft previously rejected twice by the European Commission.

The main goal of the Italian government J. Conte called the prevention of sanctions against Italy, which will inevitably harm not only Italy itself but also Europe as a whole. The Prime Minister also noted that the new project will contain proposals that the European Commission cannot fail to satisfy.

According to the parameters of the new draft budget, the initially anticipated deficit of 2.4% of GDP can be reduced, but the politician has not voiced specific figures.

           EURUSD: Euro growth potential remains, while traders ignore weak data for the Eurozone      Cache   Translate Page      

China and the United States continue to move around the market. Yesterday, the Treasury Secretary said that it would be a real agreement.

First of all, the trade agreement will cover intellectual property, technology and currency issues, which in the future will support the growth of employment in the United States. The US Treasury Secretary also noted that in the absence of a real agreement, the fees would be increased.

Data on manufacturing activity was released yesterday, putting pressure on the euro, but buyers managed to cope with it. According to the report, a decrease in activity in the manufacturing sector was observed in France and Germany, but only in Italy, the PMI supply managers for the manufacturing sector in November remained below 50 points and amounted to 48.6 points against 49.2 points in October. The main decline is associated with a reduction in production and new orders by Italian companies.

According to IHS Markit, the PMI purchasing managers index for the manufacturing sector in the eurozone dropped to 51.8 points in November of this year, while in October the eurozone manufacturing PMI was 52.0 points. Economists had expected the index to drop to 51.5 points.

Regular weak fundamental data on the Eurozone once again confirm the fact that the growth rates of the economy at the end of this year began to slow down again, which will affect the actions of the European Central Bank in the future.

As for the US data, activity in the US manufacturing sector in November of this year, on the contrary, continued its growth due to the demand for American goods and an increase in employment in the sector. According to the report of the Institute for Supply Management, the PMI Purchasing Managers Index for the manufacturing sector in November 2018 rose to 59.3 points against 57.7 points in October. Index values above 50 indicate an increase in activity. Economists had expected the index to be 57.9 points in November.

Expenses in the US construction sector declined in October, which is directly related to seasonal fluctuations. According to the US Department of Commerce, expenses decreased by 0.1% compared with the previous month and amounted to 1.309 trillion US dollars per annum. Economists had expected spending to rise 0.3% in October. Compared with the same period of the previous year, total construction costs in October rose by 4.9%.

The speech of the Fed representatives yesterday did not greatly affect the market.

Interesting statements were made by Neil Kashkari, who still considers the increase in interest rates a bad idea. Qashqari noted that low-key inflation is not an argument in favor of raising rates, and the Fed has plenty of time to determine if a warmed-up labor market will provoke a rise in inflation. The Fed representative also believes that full employment has not yet been achieved and the potential for growth in the labor market will remain fairly good in the future.

As for the technical picture of the EURUSD pair, it remained unchanged. The bulls are still aimed at a large resistance level of 1.1400, a breakthrough of which will lead to a stronger upward trend in the euro, with the highs around 1.1440 and 1.1480. In the case of a decline, major support levels are seen in the 1.1310 area.

Sabas, Rahib Tanggal Pesta: 5 Desember Dilahirkan tahun 439 di Motalala, Cappadocia, Turki. Saat ayahnya harus pergi ke Alexandria, Sabas yang masih kecil dititipkan kepada bibinya. Tetapi ia merasa tidak tenang karena adanya pertengkaran kedua pamannya yang memperebutkan harta warisan. Lalu, Sabas melarikan diri ke biara. Walaupun pamannya meminta Sabas kembali, Sabas memilih hidup di biara sebagai rahib termuda disana. Walaupun ia masih muda, Sabas adalah rahib yang paling tekun berdoa. Suatu hari, ia diutus ke Alexandria dan bertemu dengan orang tuanya. Sabas menolak ikut dengan orang tuanya, lalu ia diberikan 3 kepingan emas yang diserahkan kepada kepala biaranya. Empat tahun kemudian, Sabas diizinkan menikmati hidup bersama Tuhan saja dan ia mulai mendirikan sebuah biara baru. Sabas diberi tanggung jawab atas semua rahib di Palestina. Pakaiannya sederhana, setia berdoa dan mujizat banyak terjadi karenanya. Sabas meninggal tahun 532 dan dimakamkan di halaman biaranya yang dikenal dengan Biara Mar Saba (Biara Santo Sabas). Abad 12, relikuinya dibawa ke Roma oleh The Crusaders (Tentara Salib) dan tersimpan selama 800 tahun, sampai 1965. Paus Paulus VI mengembalikan relikui tersebut ke Biara Mar Saba di Yerusalem. #instakatolik #katolik #gereja #gerejakatolik #sahabatkatolik #santo #santosanta #rahib #yerusalem #cappadocia #roma #mujizat #cerita #catholicchurch #catholic #church #imankatolik #miracles #monk #pray #faith #faithful #saints #jerusalem #rome #italy #palestine #palestina #hope #turkey

          Cheese Talk: Austin’s John and Kendall Antonelli Pick 3 Top Cheeses (Wine Spectator)      Cache   Translate Page      

What are the cheese pros excited about right now? Like wine, the world of cheese is vast and diverse—potentially overwhelming, but rewarding to explore. No one is happier to guide you than your neighborhood cheesemongers. You should talk to them! In "Cheese Talk," we introduce you to a top cheesemonger and ask them for three cheeses to look for this month, as well as what wines or other beverages to pair with them.

Not many labors of love begin with a mid-honeymoon announcement that your new spouse wants to quit his career, but that’s exactly how Kendall and John Antonelli’s journey to the top of the cheese world began.

The couple met as students at Georgetown University. John, from Suffern, N.Y., was chairman of Students of Georgetown, Inc., the student-run business that includes a campus grocery store, coffee shops and more; Kendall, a literal cowgirl who grew up on a ranch in north Texas, served as “The Corp’s” V.P. of grocery. John followed Kendall back to Texas after graduation. When the couple married in 2008, he had a successful career as a CPA at Deloitte; she was practicing immigration law and advocating for human-trafficking victims.

“We were on our honeymoon in Grenada,” says Kendall. “John was reading a sci-fi apocalyptic teen novel and thinking, ‘If the world ends today, was it all worth it?’ and he turns to me and says, ‘I just had the perfect wedding. I have the perfect wife. I love our home. I love our dogs. I love our city. … I just can’t stand my job.’ I said ‘OK … what do you want to do?’ and he said, ‘Something in cheese.’”

It wasn’t completely out of the blue. In high school, John’s older brother had given him a George Foreman Grill. It inspired him to start a grilled-cheese club with his classmates and a few teachers. “We were debating the merits of white Kraft vs. yellow American singles,” laughs John. “We weren’t working with the cheeses we work with now … there was a lot of Velvee.”

Post-honeymoon, John threw himself into cheese. He attended the first-ever Murray’s Cheese Boot Camp in New York. (Kendall’s mother helped talk the specialty retailer into creating the program, and Kendall took the course not long after John.) He interned with legendary affineur Hervé Mons in France, and the couple explored the cheese cultures in Italy and Spain as well.

“Then we started running a gourmet grilled-cheese club out of our house,” Kendall says. “It was a six-course grilled-cheese dinner. And we learned a couple things about ourselves. One, we don’t really like slaving away over the stove. And two, we love being with people and building community through food; we love eating and talking. So we put that together and said, ‘Hey, what if we tell the story of artisanal food?’”

Andrew Bennett
Austin’s favorite mom-and-pop cheese shop

Antonelli’s Cheese Shop opened in 2010, and it’s been full-steam ahead ever since. “Now we have two shops, one with a kitchen,” says Kendall. “We have a warehouse selling wholesale to about 150 chefs and caterers. We have a Cheese House private-events venue hosting more than 200 events a year. We ship cheese nationwide, and we have 30 to 40 employees, but we still consider ourselves a small mom-and-pop. We joke that our cheese shop was our first baby that kept us up for sleepless nights, but since then we’ve had two biological babies. And they love cheese and prosciutto as well!”

Along the way, John was named to the board of directors of the American Cheese Society; he recently concluded a term as president. Kendall is on the board of the American Cheese Education Foundation, a non-profit alliance overseen by the ACS. “American cheeses are gaining a stage in the world market,” says John, “and that will continue, because our cheesemakers are so tremendous at what they do, so creative—it’s amazing.”

Their flagship shop carries 100 or so cheeses, about 70 percent of them domestic, along with jams, fresh-baked bread, charcuterie, pickled goods, mustards, chocolates and more. They also carry about 30 wines, all organic, sustainable or biodynamic, plus a few dozen beers.

“Our goal is that a customer comes in and sees something they know, and that becomes an entry point for us to get them talking and tasting and trying other things,” says Kendall. “Our mission is ‘Do good, eat good.’ We support artisans who make their food in a way that’s great for their animals, their land, the planet, their team and, most important, is delicious.” Each month, through the Antonellis’ philanthropy plan, they select one Charitable Cheese Cause to spotlight and support; this year's recipients have included Big Love Cancer, the Texas Land Conservancy and Keep Austin Fed, among others. They also regularly contribute to charity events and fundraisers, including raising nearly $10,000 for hurricane-relief efforts in 2017.

Oma is made at Von Trapp Farmstead and ripened to perfection at the Cellars at Jasper Hill.

Von Trapp Farmstead–Cellars at Jasper Hill Oma

Milk: Cow
Category: Washed-rind tomme
Region: Waitsfield, Vt.
Age: 10 to 14 weeks
Price: $35 per pound

Kendall says: I love Oma, but especially this time of year. Made by the Von Trapps—yes, relatives of those Von Trapps—on a farmstead operation in Waitsfield, Vt., Oma means "grandmother" in German. And this cheese is like a big ole hug from Grandma. It's comforting, bulging and a little stinky. It's a washed-rind cheese, resulting in an orange-hued rind with a straw-yellow paste that comes from the milk of primarily Jersey cows on their farm. While perhaps [smelling] a little funky, it actually has sweet and nutty flavors with a hint of garlic scapes.

Kendall's recommended pairing: The appearance, the texture, the flavor … it all makes me want to curl up on the couch in front of a fireplace with a plate of cured meats, pickles, mustard and pumpernickel bread with a nice stout—cuddled up in that orange-and-green afghan blanket Grandma made in the ’70s. Waxing poetic? Yes. Overstated description? Perhaps. But that's exactly what this cheese makes me feel. (For the record, my grandmother never crocheted an afghan, but eating this cheese makes me feel like she did.)

Wine Spectator picks: Most tomme-style cheeses (a category of small to medium-size wheels that originated in the French and Swiss Alps) share a nutty characteristic, and Oma is no different. But it also has a washed rind, which gives it a marked pungency. Aromatic whites like dry Riesling, Viognier and Gewürztraminer, as well as Grüner Veltliner and Pinot Gris, are lovely complements to Oma, along with light-bodied reds like Merlot, Pinot Noir (especially Spätburgunders) or Gamay. Try the delicate A to Z Wineworks Pinot Gris Oregon 2017 (87 points, $15, 66,726 cases made) or intense Yalumba Viognier South Australia The Y Series 2017 (90, $13, 19,000 cases imported, 2018 Top 100: No. 56).

The Terre des Volcans imprint of Fourme d’Ambert comes from the cave of French cheese star Hervé Mons.

Fourme d’Ambert Terre des Volcans

Milk: Cow
Category: Semi-firm blue
Region: Auvergne, France
Age: 3 months
Price: $21 per pound

John says: One of the first cheeses I fell in love with was Fourme d'Ambert Terre des Volcans. Sometimes you want a blue that smacks you in the face; sometimes you want a blue that lures you in with a friendly approach and just reminds you what a good, reliable cheese is. This pasteurized cow's-milk blue is the latter, offering even folks who don't love blue a new chance to change their minds with its fudgelike texture that's rich, creamy, milky and earthy. The flavors can range from fruity to mushroomy.

John's recommended pairing: I recently took this home and enjoyed it with a bar of dark chocolate and a bottle of Nebbiolo.

Wine Spectator picks: Blues are perhaps the most strongly, sharply flavored category of cheeses and, not coincidentally, they’re most classically paired with rich and powerfully flavored wines (see: Stilton with Port; Roquefort with Sauternes). Fourme d’Ambert is on the gentler, creamier end of the blue spectrum, which is why it’ll pair beautifully with a young Langhe Nebbiolo like Michele Chiarlo Nebbiolo Langhe Il Principe 2016 (89, $20, 10,000 cases made). But for an eye-opening study in contrasts, try it with a bracingly tart sparkling wine like an extra brut or brut nature (aka “zero dosage”) like Bruno Paillard Extra Brut Champagne Première Cuvée NV (92, $50, 20,000 cases made). The lively acidity and minerally effervescence is a bright foil to a mouthcoatingly creamy, salty blue.

Fat Tailed Tomme matures from a fudgy-textured youth into a firm, almost crumbly Manchego-style Texas original.

Veldhuizen Fat Tailed Tomme

Milk: Sheep
Category: Washed-rind tomme
Region: Dublin, Texas
Age: 3 to 10 months
Price: $36 per pound

John says: If Oma is an everyday fave and Fourme d'Ambert is an old friend, then Fat Tailed Tomme is the novelty that recently came into our lives. Made in Dublin, Texas, by the Veldhuizen family, this is their first attempt at sheep's-milk cheeses, a rarity in Texas—if they existed at all! Stuart and Connie have been making raw cow's-milk cheeses for decades and aging them in their caves built in the side of a hill, and we're excited they've added this to their lineup. When their daughter Rebecca wanted to move back to the family farm, they told her she needed to earn her keep. It was her dream and hard work that launched their farmstead sheep’s-milk creamery.

Taking inspiration from popular Manchego styles, Fat Tailed Tomme is named after the Awassi breed of sheep, known for their high milk production and—you guessed it—fat tails. Made with raw milk, it's aged a minimum of two months, but they're finding that flavor peaks around eight to 10 months, with notes of pineapple and other tropical fruit flavors, as well as hints of pasta. It develops a natural rind that is rubbed with olive oil.

John’s recommended pairing: Pair it with a dry sparkling cider.

Wine Spectator picks: Sheep’s milk has more than twice the fat content of cow’s milk, yielding cheeses with especially rich pastes. Fat Tailed Tomme is a Lone Star tribute to Spanish Manchego, so try it with a late-release Rioja Crianza like Bodegas Faustino 2014 (88, $14, 88,000 cases made), Bodegas LAN 2014 (88, $14, 96,000 cases made) or Cune 2015 (88, $13, 10,000 cases imported).


          Italian Fashion Mogul and Vintner Is Under House Arrest (Wine Spectator)      Cache   Translate Page      

The man behind the famed super Tuscan wine Oreno has been confined to his villa near Arezzo by Italian authorities, accused of taking part in money laundering, bank fraud and tax fraud schemes. The Guardia di Finanza, Italy’s financial crimes force, has placed Antonio Moretti, the owner of the Sette Ponti winery in Tuscany and the Feudo Maccari winery in Sicily, under house arrest, along with his son Andrea, as it investigates crimes related to Moretti’s clothing brands and its retail chain, according to Italian media reports.

The wineries have not been implicated in the alleged financial crimes, but the authorities have seized control of them for the time being, as well as Moretti’s other assets, worth a total of $28.9 million, according to authorities.

“The operation of the [wine] companies is not compromised. The [wines’] quality are 100 percent guaranteed,” Stefano Maggini, the wineries’ export manager, told Wine Spectator. “[The Morettis] are accused, but nothing is proven at the moment and [the charges] don’t involve the wine companies.”

Moretti, 67, became famous as a fashion footwear mogul, building the brand called Car Shoe and later partnering with Prada. In 1997, he launched Tenuta Sette Ponti and its flagship wine, Oreno, a blend of Cabernet and Merlot that has consistently earned outstanding ratings from Wine Spectator and twice earned Top 10 rankings in Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines of the Year. In 1999, he began buying land in southwestern Sicily, establishing Feudo Maccari. He also owns Orma in Bolgheri.

According to Italian reports, more than a dozen executives for Moretti’s family companies have been implicated in financial schemes related to the clothing firms. A total of 14 companies and assets owned by the family have been seized by authorities. Several relatives, including son Alberto Moretti, a famous fashion designer, have not been arrested but are named in the investigation and are forbidden from managing public companies while the case is ongoing.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

6:01

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

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

Russ Roberts: or vote--

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

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

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

10:12

Russ Roberts:

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

Maeve Cohen: Yeah.

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

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

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

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

15:05

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

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

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

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

Russ Roberts: It's not--

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

Russ Roberts: Yeah--

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

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

Maeve Cohen: --yeah. Yeah.

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

Maeve Cohen: Mmmhmm--

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

19:24

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

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

23:17

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

Maeve Cohen: yeah--

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

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

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

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

Russ Roberts: [?]dmahhhom[?]

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

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

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

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

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

Russ Roberts: Yep--

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

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

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

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

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

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

Maeve Cohen: oh, no--

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

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

Russ Roberts: Yeah. Exactly. Terrible--

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

Russ Roberts: 'An economist'--

Maeve Cohen: Yeah.

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

Maeve Cohen: Yeah.

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

31:31

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

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

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

Maeve Cohen: Exactly.

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

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

Maeve Cohen: The Economic Society.

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

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

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

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

Russ Roberts: I did. With John.

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

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

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

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

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

38:07

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

44:24

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

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

48:38

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

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

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

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

52:26

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

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

Russ Roberts: Did you say 'tat'?

Maeve Cohen: Tat.

Russ Roberts: How do you spell that?

Maeve Cohen: T-a-t.

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

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

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

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

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

55:53

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

Maeve Cohen: Yes--

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

Maeve Cohen: I've got a guess.

Russ Roberts: Go ahead.

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

Russ Roberts: I think that's potential

I vincitori di Open-F@b Call4Ideas 2018 premiati durante l'evento finale del contest internazionale promosso da BNP Paribas Cardif, tra le prime dieci compagnie assicurative in Italia (Classifica ANIA 2017), in collaborazione con Insurance Up, sono Mabasta (1° classificato), Leaf (2° classificato) e Uyolo (3°classificato). A selezionare in real time le migliori idee che hanno un impatto sociale positivo sulle persone e sulla società, una giuria di esperti e il pubblico in sala che hanno votato i dieci finalisti via webapp durante l'avvincente Final Challenge in cui si sono sfidati con passione e creatività. I tre vincitori verranno ora supportati dal team R&D di BNP Paribas Cardif che li seguirà nello sviluppo e nella concretizzazione del loro progetto, tenendo in considerazione le esigenze del mercato e della Compagnia. La quinta edizione di Open-F@b Call4Ideas, contest longevo e di successo che ha contribuito a costruire un modello consolidato di Open Innovation per BNP Paribas Cardif, ha avuto una grande adesione con 129 progetti pervenuti dall'Italia e dall'estero, a testimonianza che il tema è molto sentito.  I tre migliori progetti hanno rappresentato al meglio il connubio tra innovazione e sostenibilità. Con Mabasta sarà possibile prevenire i fenomeni del bullismo e del cyberbullismo nelle scuole con azioni svolte "dal basso", da parte dei ragazzi stessi; Leaf offre servizi bancari virtuali alle popolazioni vulnerabili che attraversano i confini territoriali, permettendo a rifugiati e migranti di viaggiare in sicurezza, senza contanti, proteggendo i propri risparmi; Uyolo è una startup innovativa che si occupa di ideare, sviluppare e commercializzare prodotti innovativi ad alto valore tecnologico nei campi della filantropia, volontariato e imprenditoria sociale. Tra i fattori chiave che hanno portato alla vittoria le tre idee figurano, oltre al contenuto tecnologico e alla capacità della proposta di generare un impatto positivo su persone e società, anche la fattibilità del progetto. "Quest'anno il tema di Open-F@b Call4Ideas ci sta particolarmente a cuore perché per noi l'innovazione non è più solo una questione tecnologica. Vogliamo innovare per prevenire, assistere e proteggere meglio i nostri clienti, migliorando la qualità della vita delle persone. Questo significa offrire prodotti con un valore tangibile e riconosciuto attraverso servizi di assistenza di alta qualità inclusi, per supportare i clienti in situazioni difficili, migliorare la customer experience, favorendo l'interazione con nuovi touchpoints, e rendere le polizze ampiamente accessibili e semplici." - ha dichiarato Isabella Fumagalli, Head of Territory for Insurance in Italy di BNP Paribas Cardif - "Il fattore abilitante che ci aprirà nuovi scenari di miglioramento dei bisogni sociali, sostenendo anche la nostra competitività, sarà la capacità di saper creare e gestire ecosistemi dove integrare competenze assicurative, tecnologia, servizi, collaborazione con startup, partner, player di altri settori, attori sociali, dipendenti e comunità." La cerimonia di premiazione - presentata dal blogger e conduttore radiofonico Luca Viscardi - si è tenuta ieri a Milano presso la Fondazione Catella, trasformata per l'occasione in una "Foresta delle idee". Prendendo spunto dalla pianta del nuovo parco, La Biblioteca degli Alberi, all'interno del quale è inserita la Fondazione Catella, gli ospiti sono stati accolti sin dal cortile da sfere luminose a simboleggiare i progetti e le idee che iniziano a germogliare. All'interno della sala i partecipanti hanno potuto, quindi, visitare un percorso espositivo con alberi luminosi, ognuno dei quali rappresentava un progetto finalista. La serata è stata aperta dagli interventi di Isabella Fumagalli, Head of Territory for Insurance in Italy di BNP Paribas Cardif, e di Kelly Russel, CEO e Direttore Generale della Fondazione Catella, cui sono seguiti altri interventi di esperti del mondo Insurtech che hanno portato la loro esperienza e hanno animato la serata. Tra questi, Andrea Rangone, CEO di Digital360, Gabriele Benedetto, Amministratore Delegato di Telepass e Marco Pozzi, Incubation Manager di ImpactHub. La Final Challenge, condotta per la prima parte da Luca Viscardi e poi da Giovanni Iozzia, Chief Editor di Economy Up, ha visto le start-up sfidarsi con confronti a coppie ed eliminazione diretta. L'evento si è concluso con la premiazione dei progetti vincitori a cura di Isabella Fumagalli e di Andrea Veltri, Chief Marketing Officer & Strategy di BNP Paribas Cardif.   Open-F@b Call4Ideas 2018: i progetti vincitori   1° classificato: MABASTA "Mabasta" è nato nel 2016 come movimento ideato e animato da adolescenti, per contrastare e, possibilmente, prevenire i fenomeni del bullismo e del cyberbullismo con azioni svolte "dal basso", da parte dei ragazzi stessi. È un'impresa sociale che opera principalmente attraverso l'uso consapevole e positivo del web e della tecnologia. Mabasta si esprime e agisce nei linguaggi multimediali e interattivi dei ragazzi in quanto "è" dei ragazzi. Progetto - Innovativo, attuale, d'impatto La mission di Mabasta è quella di prevenire e contrastare il bullismo con azioni "dal basso". Il progetto attraverso il quale viene svolta questa mission prende il nome di "Modello Mabasta" e consiste in una originale serie di consigli e azioni comportamentali che ogni classe e scuola d'Italia può liberamente adottare. È un innovativo protocollo di iniziative svolte quasi esclusivamente dagli studenti e supervisionate dagli adulti (insegnanti e presidi). Il Modello è rivolto a tutti i livelli di scuola, dalle elementari alle superiori. Positive Impact Innovation Il valore aggiunto consiste nel fatto che è, in assoluto, la prima volta che ad occuparsi di bullismo e cyberbullismo sono i giovani stessi, ossia coloro che sono direttamente coinvolti e protagonisti (vittime, "bulli" e "bulle", ma anche gli spettatori). Ad oggi questo forte impatto è stato dimostrato sia dalla quantità di studenti e scuole che hanno interagito con Mabasta negli ultimi due anni, sia dalla grande attenzione dei media e delle istituzioni (Presidente Mattarella, Ministri, Camera, Sanremo, Spiderman, quotidiani, tv e radio nazionali, ...). Team Giorgio Armillis, Martina Caracciolo, Mattia Carluccio, Mirko Cazzato, Denise De Cillis, Patrick De Silla, Marta Di Giuseppe, Niki Greco, Simone La Gioia, Andrea Laporta, Francesca Laudisa, Maria Marsano, Michela Montagna, Francesco Rizzo, Filippo Staccioli, Daniela Tafuri. Adult leader: Daniele Manni.   2° classificato: LEAF Leaf offre servizi bancari virtuali alle popolazioni vulnerabili che attraversano i confini territoriali. Leaf sostiene le persone che hanno perso l'accesso a tutto ciò che hanno guadagnato, archiviando e trasportando i loro beni attraverso i confini mediante un dispositivo mobile, senza l'utilizzo dello smartphone. Rifugiati e migranti possono viaggiare senza contanti, sapendo che i loro account sono sicuri e accessibili a livello globale. Leaf protegge i risparmi dei clienti attraverso la tecnologia blockchain senza esposizione alla volatilità della criptovaluta, costruendo le basi per un'identità economica completa di dati biometrici, transazioni e risparmi. Progetto - Sicurezza, identità, convenienza Con Leaf un rifugiato crea un account, invia denaro mobile alla piattaforma e può quindi viaggiare senza contanti. Amici e familiari possono inviare denaro all'account del cliente. Una volta sicuri, i contanti vengono prelevati nella nuova valuta locale o utilizzati come garanzia per un microprestito. Il progetto sta partendo nella regione del Nord Kivu in Africa con 150.000 rifugiati provenienti da RDC, Rwanda e Burundi. Leaf guadagna con piccole commissioni di transazione, spread di valuta estera e investendo i risparmi dei clienti durante il trasporto. Positive Impact Innovation Consentendo ai clienti che attraversano i confini di conservare i propri risparmi, Leaf apre la strada alle rimesse internazionali creando, nel contempo, un'identità biometrica ed economica documentata. Leaf consente ai rifugiati di partecipare all'economia formale. Un maggiore accesso ai fondi fornisce sicurezza finanziaria e diminuisce la dipendenza dai Paesi ospitanti e dagli aiuti esteri. Trattare i rifugiati come clienti piuttosto che come beneficenza aiuta a stabilire la fiducia, a garantire la responsabilità e a dare dignità ai rifugiati.

Dec. 4, 2018 

University Distinguished Professor Anil Jain named Fellow by The World Academy of Sciences 

Anil Jain of Michigan State University has been named a Fellow of The World Academy of Sciences (TWAS) for a lifetime of perspectives and publications that have inspired students and researchers worldwide. He was one of 46 new fellows elected at the 28th TWAS general meeting in Trieste, Italy, Nov. 27-29.University Distinguished Professor Anil Jain has been named a Fellow of The World Academy of Sciences for inspiring students and researchers worldwide. 

A University Distinguished Professor of Computer Science and Engineering, Jain is being honored for his pioneering contributions to pattern recognition resulting in novel solutions for a rapidly evolving biometrics industry. 

TWAS was founded 35 years ago to increase representation by women and researchers from the world's science- and technology-lagging countries. Jain said it is not typical to have a person from a developed nation be elected a fellow by the worldwide organization. 

Jain was nominated for the honor by Tieniu Tan of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), where he is a professor of computer vision and pattern recognition, CAS deputy secretary-general and director general of the CAS Bureau of International Cooperation. 

Tan called Jain an internationally renowned scholar and educator. “For the past 40 years, he has actively promoted the research topics of pattern recognition, computer vision and biometrics in developing nations through lectures, exchange programs, technical assistance and student and postdoc training. 

“Very few people get elected every year from North America,” he added. “He most certainly deserves the recognition.” 

Co-nominator Sankar Pal, distinguished scientist and former director of the Indian Statistical Institute in Kolkata, India, said Jain’s high quality pioneering research has had an enormous impact on statistical pattern recognition and computer vision. 

“It is evident from a Google scholar h-index of 179, with total citation 185,000,” Pal said. “His IEEE-PAMI publications have made him a role model scientist to many of us and to young researchers in machine learning. All these extra-ordinary achievements made his election to TWAS Foreign Fellowship successful. I am happy to be a part of this endeavor.”

Jain is known around the world for his expertise in biometric recognition, computer vision, and fingerprint-matching technology.

“It has been my honor to work on projects in countries including India, China, and Indonesia," Jain said. “I advised the world’s largest biometrics project, Aadhaar, in India that has enrolled more than 1 billion residents utilizing fingerprints and iris images for de-duplication in India’s social welfare system.” 

Jain also worked on a prototype fingerprint system to recognize infants and toddlers for vaccination tracking in Benin and India. The World Food Program is utilizing the prototype child ID system in field trials in Somalia in an effort to eliminate fraud in food distribution to children.

Anil Jain advised the world's largest biometrics project, Aadhaar, in India that has enrolled more than 1 billion residents utilizing fingerprints and iris images for India's medical system.

He holds one of 17 inaugural appointments to the U.S. Forensic Science Standards Board, a newly developed organization dedicated to identifying and fostering standards and guidelines for the nation’s forensic science community. 

Jain has previously served as a member of the Defense Science Board and the National Academies panels on Whither Biometrics and Improvised Explosive Devices. 

His list of honors is extensive. In 2016, he was elected to the United States National Academy of Engineering (among engineering’s highest honors) and as a Foreign Fellow of the Indian National Academy of Engineering. In 2015, he was named a fellow of the National Academy of Inventors for innovative discovery and technology, significant impact on society, and support and enhancement of innovation.

Jain is also a fellow of the Institute of Electrical & Electronics Engineers (IEEE); Association of Computing Machinery (ACM); American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS); International Society for Optics and Photonics Society (SPIE); and International Association of Pattern Recognition (IAPR).

He is a recipient of the Guggenheim Fellowship, Humboldt Research Award, Fulbright Scholarship, King-Sun Fu Prize, and W. Wallace McDowell Award. 

Jain is regularly invited to speak at national and internal forums, including the Third Annual ID4AFRICA Conference in Namibia in 2017; the 103rd Indian Science Congress, Information & Communication Science and Technology in India in 2016; the Royal Society meeting on United Kingdom forensics in London, 2015, and the keynote address at the Microsoft Computing in the 21st Century Conference in Beijing, 2014.

TWAS
TWAS is a global science academy based in Trieste, Italy. It was founded in 1983 by a distinguished group of scientists from the developing world who shared a belief that building strength in science and engineering could build the knowledge and skill to address the challenges of hunger, disease and poverty. 

The newest 46 fellows increase the academy's total to 1,267 Fellows from 104 countries – the most countries represented since TWAS’s creation. The academy elected its first fellows ever from Bolivia, the Lao People's Democratic Republic, Libya, Nicaragua, and Zambia. In addition, members were elected from Iraq, Sudan, Turkey, and Uzbekistan. Thirteen of the new fellows are women, who now account for 13 percent of the total membership.

          The Rest Is Up To You!      Cache   Translate Page      
By John Stallings

Let us therefore fear lest a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it. Heb.4:1

What comes to mind when you think of rest?

The weekend? A day at the beach? Sleeping late in the morning? Retirement? Some would see these things as boring while others would see them as heavenly.If you've attended a funeral lately, I’m sure you heard the word rest used a lot. If you've walked through a grave yard recently you’ll know the words “Rest in Peace--RIP” are on almost every tombstone.The use of the word rest associated with death means that the person’s labors have come to an end. The troubles of the world and the illnesses that may have caused the deceased persons death are now over. The stillness of death gives the impression of rest.

A SPIRITUAL REST

The writer of Hebrews, in chapter four introduces a different kind of rest, a spiritual rest. The Bible depicts the life & experience of a Christian as a journey or pilgrimage wherein we’re called upon to leave a world system & come under the headship of Jesus Christ. As we follow Christ we come more & more into a rest which He provides for us.

One might easily conclude that the Bible is all about work and no play, because it speaks negatively about sloth and idleness and positively about labor and work. Yet Jesus spoke often about the need to rest.

Indeed when His disciples returned from ministry he encouraged them to come aside to a deserted place and rest awhile.Some folk are never at rest because they’re always bothered by something. The only way we’ll ever truly experience the life God has for us is to enter into His Rest.I know whereof I speak because I’ve spent more time than I’d like to admit, not in total chaos & tumult, but neither in the true perfect resting place of God’s love & mercy.

In a day of labor-saving technology it seems we’re more stressed than ever. We’d do well to remember that we can only wind life so tight, and then it breaks.

ZONE OF REST

What I’ve learned & am learning is that the desired place God wants us to live & where we’ll be most fruitful is a zone called His Rest.There are three influences that exert pressure on us; the world, the flesh & the devil. Each of these influences is seeking to do one thing; to pull us out of God’s Rest. If you are doing kingdom work & contending for kingdom principles, the enemy is trying to get at you at every turn.God’s rest is a place where an individual is established in Christ & does not run from philosophy to philosophy. God’s rest is a place of quietness, peace, stillness, & freedom from guilt, where we rest from whatever seeks to disturb us or cause us to worry. It’s a cessation from endless legalistic activity & relaxing in God. It is to be settled & secure. It is having absolute faith & trust that God will supply all our needs. It’s knowing we can lean & rely on God for support no matter what may come.

Hebrews chapter four actually opens with a warning focused on this rest.—

Let us therefore fear lest a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it.

It’s important to note the rest spoken of here is different than other kinds of rests in scripture. It’s called-“The rest that remains.” This rest isn’t the Sabbath day or the seventh day rest, a pattern of God’s rest on the seventh day after creation.

Hebrews 4:11 tells us to,--Labor therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.It sounds like an oxymoron, to speak of “laboring to enter God’s rest,” but it isn’t.

Jesus said …Come unto me all ye that labor & are heavy laden & I will give you rest.” Then He says, Take my yoke upon you & learn of me for I am meek & lowly of heart & you shall find rest unto your souls.

REST ISN'T ACHIEVED BY LEAVING A SET OF BAD CIRCUMSTANCES.

Some people think they can find rest & peace by relocating. They will leave a job, a marriage, a
city or even a country thinking if they can go somewhere else they’ll find happiness & rest. This of course is just an illusion.Human beings are restless by nature.

Have you ever seen people walking down a Mall talking on their cell-phone? They’re one place but they want to be somewhere else. We go out, and then we can’t wait to get home. When we get home we can’t wait to leave to be somewhere else.We take vacations to rest but unless we have a resting heart & spirit a vacation won’t work. We've all had the experience of coming home from an extended get-away & as soon as our hand touches the door-knob the old pressure is still there. We took it with us & brought it back.

Israel thought if they could throw off slavery they would be happy but it wasn’t long until they started grumbling & wanting to go back to Egyptian bondage rather than press into the Promised Land, or rest God had for them.

This would be a good place to remind ourselves of a group of powerful & prominent leaders in the Bible. Because they are so prominent in Israel’s history without question you’ll be familiar with their names; Shamma, Shaphat, Igal, Palti, Gaddiel, Gaddi, Ammiel, Sethur, Nahbi & Guel. These names are household words in every Christian home in America, right? Nope! Hardly. Only if we add the two last names to the list, Joshua & Caleb, will it make sense.

These are the names of the twelve men sent out by Moses to survey the land of Promise. Isn’t it amazing that of these twelve princes, each the head of his own tribe governing thousands of men, the names of ten are lost in obscurity in a list tucked away in the book of numbers? Only two of the twelve are household names, immortalizations of greatness & fame.Ten leaders were a dismal failure; dragging a whole generation down with them, but two, Joshua, & Caleb were paragons of victory & success. What made the difference? The ten spies failed to believe God would do what he said he’d do. They didn’t mix faith in God with their so-called knowledge so they never entered into God’s best, or God’s rest.

God had this & other stories recorded for our edification & as examples to us. The same rest He urged His people to press into & possess is still available to us but we can only enter into it by faith.

A rest is available to us & we should make every effort to enter into that rest. Ancient Israel failed to do so & God is showing us why & how we might avoid making the same mistake they did. If we don’t press into God’s rest, we’ll do essentially what Israel did & wander around rootless, never experiencing God’s best for our lives.

HERE ARE THE INGREDIENTS OF GOD”S REST:

1. When we are residing in God’s rest, we are seeing things from His perspective, not ours.

We began to see our problems as small because God is with us. When we are resting with God we know that anything is possible because we have “Big time back-up.”When we are in God’s rest we won’t make decisions based on fear. We won’t worry & fret because we’re seeing things differently now. Resting in God is surrender where we don’t try to do things on our own without Him.

2. When we are in God’s rest we hear from Him more often.

Recently we were praying about an issue, not a life altering one but nonetheless important. You know how it can be; you just keep circling the same mountain never seeming to hit on a satisfying answer. During a week-end out of town, we visited with relatives and minister friends and as we were relaxing, not really trying to find an answer to our problem, the answered snapped into focus.

Over and over again life has taught me that the clarity of thinking necessary to find the proper course of action comes only after we’ve had the chance to rest and be renewed. When you and I are working from a place of exhaustion we can get trapped into short-sightedness when God is able to shower us with wisdom if we’ll only take the time to pull away, put our conundrum on the back burner and give Him an opportunity to speak to us.

When we’re having panic attacks it’s harder for God to reach us. God wants to talk to us but we must be listening to Him. The world around us provides static that blocks God out unless we intentionally tune Him in & keep Him at the forefront of our minds. When we are resting in God we give Him the opportunity to do things we’d never be able to do on our own.When we rest in the power of God, we start to see His power actualized in our lives.

CERTAIN PEOPLE

One of my favorite passages on rest & peace is in Acts 12:1-15. Listen to it;

Now about that time Herod the king stretched forth his hand to vex certain of the church. Did you get that; he vexed certain of the church?

The devil doesn’t vex or bother everyone in the church; at least he doesn’t bother them all to the same extent. If Satan sees us as a threat he will do all he can to vex us. If we’ve made a deep commitment to God, there’s a bulls-eye on our back.

And he killed James the brother of John with the sword.—vr.2And because he saw it pleased the Jews he proceeded further to take Peter also. [Then were the days of the unleaven bread.]Vr. 3And when he had apprehended him he put him in prison & delivered him to four quarter ions of soldiers, intending after Easter to bring him forth to the people. Vr.4And Peter therefore was kept in prison but prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him.And when Herod would have brought him forth, the same night Peter was sleeping between two soldiers bound with two chains & the keepers before the door kept the prison.

This has to be one of the Bible’s most prefect pictures of rest. James had been killed by a sword & now Peter has been arrested & awaits the same fate. But is he screaming & crying? No! Is he telling God how He’s let him down? No! Peter is sleeping. Can you imagine that? Would you & I be sleeping in a circumstance like that? I can’t speak for you but in my case I strongly doubt it. But Peter is resting in the hands of God. We could find no greater example of God’s rest than this.Then because Peter’s trust was in God & the people of God were praying for him, he was miraculously delivered by an angel. Here’s one of the most restful thoughts I’ve ever embraced;

Paul said in 2 Corinthians 5:8…to be absent from the body is to be present with Christ.

That being true, what’s the worst thing that could happen to us? If we die we’re immediately ushered into Christ’s presence. I’m sure that promise is what gave Peter such peace that night in prison. So, if we’re looking at death as the worst calamity that could befall us, all death could do is take us away from the asphalt & concrete streets we trod & upgrade us to the golden streets of Glory.

In 1967 I had my first experience in flying over an ocean. I’d flown domestically many times since childhood but this time I was going with a group of ministers to visit several foreign countries, including Israel.I boarded a plane in Orlando, headed for New York. I was so green at flying that when the plane started banking to land in New York, I leaned back the opposite way as if that would somehow balance the plane.

But the hardest thing for me was when the plane headed out over the Atlantic Ocean. Rational thought told me that hitting the water it would be the same as hitting solid ground but my fears were telling me it was much more dangerous to fly over that big ocean. We flew overnight from New York to Amsterdam Holland. I would drift off to sleep for a while then I’d wake with a start & sit there thinking how unnatural it was for a big jet with hundreds of people aboard to be up in the air over the ocean. I’d repeat this pattern every hour on the hour. I had an awful time trying to keep that plane flying that night. The surprising part is - I knew the equation of speed and lift equaling flight. But the devil was attacking me with fear trying to make me believe that the success of the flight was all on my back, which of course is silly. The thing that finally enabled me to relax & come to a place of peace was telling myself that God could take care of me just as well flying over water as over mountains or flat land.

Then I acknowledged that the risk of flying was acceptable when I thought of where that big Jet was taking me. I was actually going to Europe. Then I was going to follow Paul’s footsteps in Italy & Greece, & finally I was going to walk in Jesus’ footsteps in The Holy Land. I was going to visit the Coliseum in Rome where the Christians were fed to the Lions. That to me was far better than refusing to risk flying the ocean & staying home under the bed.I also had to finally place my trust in the Plane & the pilots & trust that the jet engines would keep running until we found a place to land.

If you ever hear that I was on a plane that crashed, don't feel bad for me. Really!  Long ago I decided that I wasn't going to live a life ruled by fear.I often ask myself what my life would have been like had I refused to fly.Almost certainly I would never have visited the many beautiful lands and had the privilege to meet and minister to so many. I've just had to relax believing everything would work out & I’d not only be safe but enriched for the experience.

It’s the same for us as Christians. We believe Christ died & rose again & He is able to bring us safely into God’s rest & entering that rest is worth all the sacrifices we might make on the journey.

HUCKABEE

T.V personality and recent Republican presidential contender Mike Huckabee in a recent book tells his experience as he came up through the ranks in Arkansas politics, finally becoming one of the very few Republicans to be elected to the Governors office in that state.When he was first elected Lieutenant Governor, he found his office nailed shut from the inside. Most of the people who held office in the state were “yellow-dog Democrats,” meaning they’d vote for a yellow dog before they’d vote for a Republican.

Huckabee, being a committed Christian knew if he tried to play the game his detractors were playing he’d lose in the end so he stuck to his Christian principles. He told his staff to do just the opposite of what his enemies were doing. Though he had to occupy a small cubby-hole office for 59 days, [all the furniture had been removed from his office anyway] he just went about his work in a relaxed manner never seeking to retaliate in any way.Word got out about how he was being treated & a writer from The Wall Street Journal was sent down to see what was happening. In the end, Huckabee became one of the most popular & successful politicians in Arkansas & ended up serving two terms as Governor.

How did Huckabee accomplish this? Not by resorting to the street tactics of his enemies but by resting & believing that he’d be rewarded if he let God fight his battles.

DON'T YANK ON A KNOT

Here’s a simple little illustration. When you get a knot in a shoelace or any rope or string, the first thing you have to do is to not make the knot worse by yanking or pulling on it. If you do that the knot just becomes tighter. When a child comes to a parent with a knot in his shoelace, the first challenge is to get the child to be still while you are untangling the knot.One of the lessons God is trying to teach us is to cease from struggling & impatiently trying to work things out using our own strength & wisdom.

In Psalm 46:10 God instructs us….be still and know that I am God.

That means stop the panicky thoughts & efforts & just rest in God’s ability to untangle all our “knots.”If you & I can’t rest in God & trust Him with our lives as well as our eternal souls, we’ll never enter His rest. The writer of Hebrews puts it this way;

There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God. For he that is entered into His rest he also hath ceased from his own works as God did from His.

Let us labor therefore to enter into that rest lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief. Hebrews 4:9-11.


Every Blessing,

          Eaton's: The Trans-Canada Store      Cache   Translate Page      

Eaton's: The Trans-Canada Store by Bruce Allen Kopytek was a weighty paperback about Canada's preeminent department store chain. At 464 pages, I approached the book thinking that although it would be highly informative, it would nevertheless be a slow read. My first impression was pleasantly disproved the moment I started reading. Kopytek managed to write a lengthy and super-detailed corporate history of the retail giant while maintaining a personal touch. The result was an addictive read, a page-turner, especially since I knew something about Eaton's and was waiting for the author to arrive at certain parts about the company's history. The author filled the book with testimonials from Eaton's customers and employees going back decades, which made the read all the more enticing.

The book started at the time of Timothy Eaton's birth in 1834 (although the Eaton family tree in Appendix B stated his year of birth as 1843) and his emigration to Canada as a young man of twenty. He was a merchant who built an empire literally from coast to coast in all ten provinces. Eaton's was not strictly a chronological read, which was fortunate because that would have made it a boring book. The first Eaton's Santa Claus Parade was held in 1905 yet the chapter about the parade only followed the chapter about store expansion and renovation in British Columbia in the 1970's. I knew that Kopytek had to write about the Eaton's parade tradition as well as the company's decision to cancel the parade in 1982. I just didn't know when he'd eventually get to it. This element of suspense--as I never rush ahead to peek at the pages to come--kept me on the edge of my seat as I ended each chapter. You could say I was waiting for Santa, and in a sense I was.

I can remember the Eaton's store on Queen Street in Toronto, and that the Queen subway platform had an escalator that led directly into the store. You did not have to leave the subway station first. If my memory serves me correctly, I remember the synesthetic pleasure of arriving from the subway platform into a bakery. Now wasn't that a smart idea for greeting customers? What better way to attract customers and to fill their heads with good thoughts than to tempt them with the aromas of freshly-baked goods? Timothy Eaton would have been proud.

Eaton's expanded from coast to coast, always trying to keep itself modern by updating its stock as well as renovating its premises. What might have seemed like a marketing blunder or over-the-top egotism was the establishment of a second major Eaton's store in downtown Toronto, merely blocks from its original location. The two stores managed to stay in business for over forty years, until the opening of the major retail colossus known as the Eaton Centre in 1977. Kopytek spent extreme detail on the architecture of each Eaton's building, whether it was the new Eaton Centre or a suburban mall anchor store. I do not have an architectural background so I had to look up some terms, such as "chamfered corners", but other structural terminology was satisfied by a photo of the store or design in question.

Kopytek filled his book with photos from Eaton's interiors, Eaton's catalogue images and store ephemera. I remember the store's metallic shopping bag dispensers, often found by the escalators. While one would certainly get a bag with every purchase, it wouldn't be one of these large shopping bags, which were made of a thicker paper and had U-shaped handles. One year in the 1970's I fell in love with the TV commercial and jingle "Eaton's Uncrates The Sun", and I bought one such shopping bag as a memento. I still have it:



I also have a small collection of old Eaton's boxes, going back to the fifties. I always place these boxes--unwrapped, of course--under my Christmas tree. I decorate "under" the tree until Christmas Eve when I place real wrapped presents there. Kopytek included photos of Eaton's ephemera from various decades. I only wish that he could have included colour pictures as some of Eaton's themes (green and, at the very end, aubergine) were quite vivid.

In the summer of 1982 Eaton's announced that it would be cancelling the Santa Claus Parade due to its extravagant costs. The store could not have foreseen the backlash of negative publicity it would receive. What the store did not realize was that people still fondly thought of Eaton's and knew the store by name as the sponsor. I enjoyed this recollection of the need for having multiple Santas on parade day:

"A dark-blue and red Eaton's van following Santa carried a second Santa, in case of a problem, along with a nurse and doctor should the excitement of the day overwhelm the parade's celebrity. In most cases, the backups were not needed, but mishaps during the parade were not unknown, ranging from an alcohol-soaked Santa who announced, 'Merry Christmas, you little bastards!' when greeting the crowd assembled to receive him to the sober but no less comical one whose 'jolly' stomach, padded out with a feather pillow, had become soaked by rain, causing his pants to drop as he ascended the ladder to the store."

Yet the downfall of Eaton's did not start with its cancellation of the parade. Eaton's ended its catalogue sales in 1976, not being able to compete with rival Simpson's. In effect Eaton's "handed over $300 million in sales to its greatest rival." The writing was on the wall. Consumer shopping was changing and Eaton's became less relevant with lower-priced retailers and having to fight a reputation that it was a store only your mother (or grandmother) shopped at.

The only criticism I had with the book was that the original newspaper advertisements were reproduced such that their text was wholly unreadable. That's what happens when you reduce a newspaper page to fit onto the page of a book. I could still read all the original copy with a magnifying glass. I am however most appreciative that Kopytek included so much detail about Eaton's culled from the nation's newspapers. He also filled the book with photos of every department store from across the country.

Kopytek ended his book with a timeline of the T. Eaton Co. Limited. It summed up major company events on a single line, but he erred with two dates. I know this, because the dates do not exist:

"1929 Calgary Eaton's opens (February 29)" and "1969 Eaton's Highfield Square (Moncton, NB) opens (February 29)".

Neither 1929 nor 1969 was a leap year. Did he mean 1928 and 1968? Or a different day in February?

The last book I read and reviewed was Apron Strings: Navigating Food and Family in France, Italy, and China by Jan Wong, and by coincidence Wong is quoted in Kopytek's book, where she shared her memories of shopping at Eaton's in Montreal (known in Quebec as Eaton) and Toronto. I am happy to say that I awarded five stars to Wong's book as well, and both she and Kopytek wrote to me after I complimented them on each of their books.

As with Eaton's merchandise, Eaton's: The Trans-Canada Store by Bruce Allen Kopytek comes highly recommended.

          Crowds honor Bush for long service, from war to White House      Cache   Translate Page      
WASHINGTON – Soldiers, citizens in wheelchairs and long lines of others on foot wound through the hushed Capitol Rotunda on Tuesday to view George H.W. Bush’s casket and remember a president whose legacy included World War military service and a landmark law affirming the rights of the disabled.

Bob Dole, a compatriot in war, peace and political struggle, steadied himself out of his wheelchair and saluted his old friend and one-time rival.

As at notable moments in his life, Bush brought together Republicans and Democrats in his death, and not only the VIPs.

Members of the public who never voted for the man waited in the same long lines as the rest, attesting that Bush possessed the dignity and grace that deserved to be remembered by their presence on an overcast day in the capital.

“I’m just here to pay my respects,” said Jane Hernandez, a retired physician in the heavily Democratic city and suburbs. “I wasn’t the biggest fan of his presidency, but all in all he was a good, sincere guy doing a really hard job as best he could.”

Bush’s service dog, Sully, was brought to the viewing, too – his main service these last months since Barbara Bush’s death in April being to rest his head on her husband’s lap. Service dogs are trained to do that.

The CIA also honored Bush, the only spy chief to become president, as three agency directors past and present joined the public in the viewing.

In the midst of the period of mourning, first lady Melania Trump gave Laura Bush, one of her predecessors, a tour of holiday decorations at the White House, a “sweet visit during this somber week,” as Mrs. Bush’s Instagram account put it. And the Trumps visited members of the Bush family at the Blair House presidential guesthouse, where they are staying. Former President George W. Bush and his wife greeted the Trumps outside before everyone went in for the private, 20-minute visit.

The Bushes later made a surprise visit to the Capitol Rotunda, shaking hands with visitors and tourists lined up to honor the family patriarch.

George W. and Laura Bush entered first, and the former president put his hand on the flag-draped casket holding the remains of his father. Their twin daughters, Jenna and Barbara, followed. Jeb Bush and his wife joined along with about a dozen other members of the Bush family. They mingled for about 10 minutes, at one point George W. Bush held up a baby.

Although President Donald Trump will attend Bush’s national funeral service Wednesday, he is not among the eulogists announced by the Bush family, a list that includes George W. Bush. The others are Alan Simpson, the former senator and acerbic wit from Wyoming; Brian Mulroney, the former Canadian prime minister who also gave a eulogy for Ronald Reagan; and presidential historian Jon Meacham.

People lined up before dawn to pay respects to the 41st president, a son and father of privilege now celebrated by everyday citizens for his common courtesies and depth of experience.

“He was so qualified, and I think he was just a decent man,” said Sharon Terry, touring Washington with friends from an Indianapolis garden club. Said her friend Sue Miller, also in line for the viewing: “I actually think I underestimated him when he was in office. My opinion of him went up seeing how he conducted himself as a statesman afterward.”

Fred Curry, one of the few African-Americans in line, is a registered Democrat from Hyattsville, Maryland, who voted for Bush in 1988, the election won by the one-term president. “Honestly, I just liked him,” he said. “He seemed like a sincere and decent man and you couldn’t argue with his qualifications.”

Inside the Capitol, Sully, the 2-year-old Labrador retriever assigned to Bush, sat by the casket in the company of people who came to commemorate Bush’s signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act, the 1990 law that, among its many provisions, required businesses that prohibit pets to give access to service dogs.

“After Mrs. Bush’s death, general companionship was a big part of Sully’s job,” John Miller, president and CEO of America’s VetDogs, said in a phone interview. “One of the things that I think was important to the president was the rest command, where Sully would rest his head on the president’s lap.”

The law was just one point of intersection for Bush and Dole, now 95, who was one of its leading advocates in the Senate.

They were fellow World War II veterans, Republican Party leaders, fierce rivals for the 1988 Republican presidential nomination won by Bush (“Stop lying about my record,” Dole snapped at Bush) and skilled negotiators. Dole, an Army veteran hit by German machine gunfire in Italy, has gone through life with a disabled right arm. Bush, a Navy pilot, survived a bail-out from his stricken aircraft over the Pacific and an earlier crash landing.

On Tuesday Dole was helped out of his wheelchair by an aide, slowly steadied himself and saluted Bush with his left hand, his chin quivering.

Dignitaries had come forward on Monday, too, to honor the Texan whose service to his country extended three quarters of a century, from World War II through his final years as an advocate for volunteerism and relief for people displaced by natural disaster. Bush, 94, died Friday.

Trump’s relationship with the Bush family has been tense. The current president has mocked the elder Bush for his “thousand points of light” call to volunteerism, challenged his son’s legacy as president and trounced “low-energy” Jeb Bush in the Republican presidential primaries en route to office. The late President Bush called Trump a “blowhard.”

Those insults have been set aside, but the list of funeral service speakers marked the first time since Lyndon Johnson’s death in 1973 that a sitting president was not tapped to eulogize a late president. (Bill Clinton did so for Richard Nixon, and George W. Bush eulogized Ronald Reagan and Gerald Ford.)

In an invocation opening Monday evening’s ceremony, the U.S. House chaplain, the Rev. Patrick J Conroy, praised Bush’s commitment to public service, from Navy pilot to congressman, U.N. ambassador, envoy to China and then CIA director before being elected vice president and then president.

“Here lies a great man,” said Rep. Paul Ryan, the House speaker, and “a gentle soul. ... His legacy is grace perfected.”

After services in Washington, Bush’s remains will be returned to Houston to lie in repose at St. Martin’s Episcopal Church before burial Thursday at his family plot on the presidential library grounds at Texas A&M University in College Station. His final resting place will be alongside Barbara Bush, his wife of 73 years who died in April, and Robin Bush, the daughter they lost to leukemia in 1953 at age 3.

Trump has ordered the federal government closed Wednesday for a national day of mourning. Flags on public buildings are flying at half-staff for 30 days.

Bush’s death reduces membership in the ex-presidents’ club to four: Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama.

          Livestock Monitoring System Market Report 2017-2027: Global Sales, Segmentation, Share, Trends and Forecast      Cache   Translate Page      

Latest market research report study on "Livestock Monitoring System Market: Global Industry Analysis and Opportunity Assessment 2017-2027."

Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/04/2018 -- Nowadays, animals are produced intensively and maintained under optimal conditions for growth and production within current technological limits. The majority of animals are constrained within a building or stockyard for most of the times. As they are prevented from foraging for their own food, the farmer/ owner of livestock has to take care for all aspects of their husbandry.

Therefore, monitoring and management related to feeding, environment, reproduction, health, growth, marketing, transport and quality becomes the responsibility of the farmer.

Livestock monitoring systems monitor the entire livestock environment 24/7, and alert the user by phone, text or email if any condition falls outside of a preset parameter, so that the user can respond quickly. Additionally, these systems are used to monitor sick animals, tack rooms, and observe animals kept in the trailer in case of travelling.

Market Overview:

Progressive developments in sensor technology are making available increasing amounts of information relevant to monitoring animals and their environment, and hence their production, growth and health.

Continuously rising demand for the large cattle and poultry, new and advanced techniques are being utilized to aid the tracking and monitoring of animals. Poultry, cattle and other animals require best possible living conditions to stay healthy and maximize their yield. Equipment failures such as ventilation systems, circulation fans, heaters and air conditioners can threaten their health and can cause problems if not handled diligently.

Market Dynamics:

Major factors responsible for fuelling the demand for livestock monitoring systems are — growth in size and number of dairy farms, development of sensors which can gather an increasingly wide range of information, new product launches for livestock management, and need for substantial cost savings associated with livestock monitoring & management.

The usage of systems for identifying and weighing animals is already pronounced globally, and it is expected that systems for tracking animals, monitoring basic health related factors such as body temperature and heart rate, and for assessing body conformation, will witness high adoption rate in coming years.

Presently livestock monitoring systems market is witnessing gradual adoption of integrated monitoring systems, in which information from sensors, databases, and other knowledge bases are combined and interpreted. Several systems containing some of the elements of an integrated monitoring system are already available commercially for swine, cattle, broiler and milk production.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Austrian victimhood

"Kill the Jew" board game.

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

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

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

Italian memories and France’s ‘golden age’

The squatted stables, Turin.

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

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

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

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

"Roma = ovens" - grafitti in Turin

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

The fight back for history

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

          Holy See urges implementation of Paris Agreement      Cache   Translate Page      

Katowice, Poland, Dec 4, 2018 / 03:19 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- At a UN climate change summit in Poland Monday, Vatican Secretary of State Cardinal Pietro Parolin underlined the Holy See’s view that climate change is a moral issue and has an effect on human dignity.

“The scientific data at our disposal clearly show the urgent need for swift action, within a context of ethics, equity and social justice,” Parolin told the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change Dec. 3.

“The transition to a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions,” he stated, “is a problem not only within the domain of technology, but also a question of consumption patterns, education, and lifestyles. We are gradually becoming aware that climate change is an issue increasingly more moral than technical.”

Speaking on the first day of the COP-24 in Katowice, Parolin stressed the Holy See’s desire for the work program of the Paris Agreement be built on a “clear ethical foundation,” and on a commitment to “advancing the dignity of the human person, alleviating poverty and promoting integral human development.”

He also said implementation of the climate change agreement should be based on “easing the impact of climate change through responsible mitigation and adaptation measures” and on meeting the needs of both the present and the future.

Informally dubbed the COP-24, the 24th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change is taking place Dec. 3-14. The main task of the summit is developing a program for implementation of the Paris Agreement at the national level.

The Paris Agreement, which will take effect in 2020, was made within the UNFCCC to create a global response to combatting the world’s greenhouse gas emissions. A long-term goal of the agreement is to help control the increase in the global average temperature by having countries pledge individual contributions towards the mitigation of global warming.

Most of the UN member states are parties to the agreement, with about a dozen having signed but not yet ratified the agreement.

As an observer state the Holy See is not eligible to sign the Paris Agreement unless it first becomes a member of the UNFCCC, though it has been supportive of the Paris Agreement from the beginning.

In his speech Parolin said, “we know what we can do, and what we have to do becomes an ethical imperative.”

“COP-24 may be a turning point, if it can show that the collaborative and proactive spirit of Paris is still alive.” He added that “attitudes such as indifference, resignation and denial, or the limited hope in some technological solution that may be only partial or even counterproductive, must not prevail.”

The secretary of state referenced several other points he said the Holy See would like to see included in the Paris Agreement Work Program, namely: the encouragement of developed nations to take the lead; advancement of sustainable consumption and production patterns; and the strengthening of financial sources against corruption.

The Holy See would also like to see inclusion of the participation of local populations, including indigenous people, in decision-making and implementation; appropriate job opportunities; and a “transparent, efficient, and dynamic” follow-up and commitment review process.

At the conclusion of the COP-24, Parolin said, there should be a document of solid “guidelines, rules and institutional mechanisms, aimed at facilitating a fair and efficient implementation of the Agreement, particularly at the national level.”

It is worrying, he said, that the Special Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change shows the commitments states have made thus far are not enough to achieve the Paris Agreement’s objectives; and it demonstrates that a “challenging route” lies ahead.

The report shows that limiting global warming is still possible, but it requires “a clear, forward-looking and strong political will” to promote fast changes in behavior, he added, noting that non-state actors are important to the process as well.

Numerous solutions to climate change are “at our disposal” and often within reach. “The question is therefore this: is there sufficient political will to implement the many solutions we have available to promote the aforementioned model of development?” Parolin said.

“In the face of such a complex issue as climate change,” he continued, “where the individual or the national response in itself is not sufficient, we have no alternative but to make every effort to implement a responsible, unprecedented collective response, intended to ‘work together to build our common home.’”

<em><strong><a href="https://screenrant.com/tag/call-me-by-your-name/">Call Me By Your Name</a></strong></em> author <span class="FullNameGroup">André Aciman‏ confirms today that he's writing a sequel. The 2017 film version of Aciman's ‏2007 novel, starring </span>Armie Hammer and Timothée Chalamet, became a global sensation and staple in contemporary queer cinematic love stories. It went on to be nominated for Best Picture, Best Adapted Screenplay, and Best Actor for Chalamet, ultimately winning Best Adapted Screenplay for screenwriter James Ivory. The story, set in 1980s Northern Italy follows the summer romance between teenager Elio Perlman (Chalamet), and an America graduate student name Oliver (Hammer), boarding at the Perlman family home. Both the novel and the film follow a coming-of-age narrative, focusing on Elio's discovery of his sexuality and spiraling infatuation with the reluctant, but mutually enamored Oliver. They eventually consummate their relationship, and the film ends with Elio navigating his first heartbreak after Oliver goes home and later reveals to the Perlman family that he's getting married.

          Strange Fruit #81: Freedom Rides and Food Banks in Ferguson, Plus Throwing Shade at the Dictionary      Cache   Translate Page      
It's been two weeks now since a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri shot and killed an unarmed 18-year-old named Michael Brown, and the community is still experiencing the aftermath. The school year in Ferguson was supposed to start on August 14, but it was delayed due to the unrest, leaving students who rely on school meals with fewer options. And business closures have left some residents out of work and short on money. This week we check in with a St. Louis food bank to see how they're responding to folks in their community who need help putting food on the table. UofL student Brina Joiner traveled to Ferguson, and stops by our studio to tell us what she saw there that we aren't seeing on the news—and to share some much-needed optimism with us and our fruitcakes. Joiner tells us it's important for young people to make the trip, because history is unfolding there. "I have to go to Ferguson," she says. "I have to see what's happening. I have to make my voice be heard, to create that change. To create what comes next." Our other guest this week would agree. Patrisse Cullors, of Dignity and Power Now, along with our friend Darnell Moore, is organizing a freedom ride to Ferguson for Labor Day weekend. It's part of the Black Lives Matter movement they started after the shooting of Trayvon Martin. She says showing solidarity in times of protest is important, and even more effective when done in person. "There's nothing like having an actual body on the front lines with you," she explains, "to say I am here with you. I am your ally. I am not going anywhere." In our Juicy Fruit segment we lighten things up with the news that Oxford Dictionaries has added one of our favorite phrases to their list: throwing shade. Unfortunately they got the definition a bit wrong. They also added some other terms, and Jaison gives Kaila a pop quiz to see how many she can define. And new pictures of Queen Latifah and her presumed girlfriend on vacation in Italy lead us to to wonder, will she ever come out? And does it actually matter any more?

Donatella Versace vola a New York e per la prima volta in assoluto sceglie la Grande Mela per allestire una sfilata-evento che presenta la collezione Pre-Fall 2019 sotto il segno della Medusa. Tra richiami sartoriali di stampo Made in Italy e accenti pop che omaggiano Manhattan, iconici throwback e odi al futuro, ecco tutto quello che c’è da sapere sull’ultima scintillante collezione firmata Versace. La location. La sede designata per presentare la Pre-Fall collection è nientemeno che l’American Stock Exchange, uno dei principali poli newyorkesi della borsa valori americana nel cuore di Wall Street. All’interno della sala principale, spicca per l’occasione una replica in scala 1:1 della fiaccola della Libertà, simbolo di forza e perseveranza, ma anche icona femminile di empowerment e tenacia a detta della stessa Donatella. La sostanziale differenza tra l’autentica Lady Liberty e la copia? Non certo le dimensioni, ma un touch of gold che non guasta mai: la replica, infatti, si presenta totalmente rivestita da una patina dorata in puro stile Versace. L’ispirazione.

          Tokyo accoglie il palazzo di Bottega Veneta      Cache   Translate Page      

Il prossimo 8 dicembre Bottega Veneta approderà in Giappone per aprire la più grande boutique su territorio asiatico. Ovviamente la Maison non poteva che scegliere una location d’eccezione come il lussuoso quartiere di Ginza a Tokyo: il rinomato distretto, noto come crocevia dello shopping di lusso e di locali in voga, accoglierà infatti come nuovo inquilino un imponente palazzo interamente griffato Bottega veneta. All’interno, negli oltre 800 metri quadrati di superficie su 6 livelli, l’intero heritage del brand: non solo le collezioni di abbigliamento ready to wear per donna e uomo, ma anche borse e piccola pelletteria, valigie, accessori, fragranze e home furniture. Un suggestivo spazio che unisce fashion, design e architettura, dalla facciata del palazzo che riproduce il tradizionale motivo intrecciato della Maison, fino agli iconici pezzi di arredamento made in Italy ospitati nei vari ambienti, come le sedie di Giò Ponti e le poltrone Sesann, originariamente disegnate da Gianfranco Frattini. “La nostra clientela locale è estremamente fedele ed importante – ha spiegato l’amministratore delegato del marchio Claus-Dietrich Lahrs – il Giappone è un Paese che continua ad essere uno dei principali mercati al mondo per Bottega Veneta. Con una selezione esaustiva in un ambiente unico e dal design […]

          Modeling matter and energy flows in marine ecosystems using emergy and eco-exergy methods to account for natural capital value      Cache   Translate Page

Abstract

The identification of principles explaining the development of ecosystems has been a major target of systems ecology and ecological modelling. Among these principles, the thermodynamic goal functions (GFs) named emergy and eco-exergy are recognised as methods unfolding the role of matter and energy flows in the functioning of ecological systems. The biophysical assessment of natural capital stocks is based on the evaluation of matter and energy flows invested by nature for their generation. In this paper, the emergy and eco-exergy methods were used to account for the natural capital value of two Mediterranean Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) located in Southern Italy. In particular, the assessment focused on four main habitats: 1) sciaphilic hard bottom (coralligenous bioconstruction), 2) photophilic hard bottom, 3) soft bottom, and 4) Posidonia oceanica seagrass bed. The emergy method allowed the assessment of natural capital in terms of direct and indirect solar energy flows invested for its generation, while the eco-exergy method accounted for the chemical energy stored in organic matter and the genetic information embodied in biomass stocks. The sciaphilic hard bottom showed a high emergy density value in the two MPAs (2.06∙1012 and 7.22∙1011 sej m−2), confirming the high convergence of input resource flows in the formation of this habitat. This high value reflects the effort of nature in the formation of this habitat and therefore it suggests the need for its consideration in conservation strategies. Instead, Posidonia oceanica seagrass bed showed the highest value of eco-exergy density in both MPAs (3.56∙106 and 3.54∙106 kJ m−2). The eco-exergy results were influenced by two main factors: 1) the large biomass density of Posidonia oceanica, and 2) the high ß value of Posidonia oceanica reflecting its evolutionary history that involved the acquisition of key adaptations for the successful colonization of marine environments. The integration between emergy and eco-exergy methods resulted in a useful approach to account for different nature values based on a biophysical perspective. Such a perspective could complement economic evaluations based on market criteria, thus supporting decision making processes oriented to the sustainable management of marine resources.


          The EU could give every European the #RightToRepair, but lobbyists will kill it unless take action!      Cache   Translate Page      

The European Union is at risk of missing a historic opportunity to bring the right to repair into legislation for the first time.

From Monday 10 December all EU member states will be called to vote on a package of regulations requiring manufacturers to make consumer and industrial products more repairable and energy-efficient in order to be approved in the EU single market.

However, pressure from industry lobbying, especially in key countries with a big manufacturing sector like Germany, Italy and the UK, has severely reduced the repair provisions in the proposed legislation. The latest draft lacks ambition and significantly limits the potential to make repairing appliances easier for all.

Luckily, all is not lost. We (The Restart Project) are urging everyone to support citizen-driven campaigning, which is proving fruitful in some of the key countries opposing the regulation. A German petition promoted by repair activists has created a real stir, garnering over 109,000 signatures and resulting in the Ministry of Environment releasing an action plan stating its full support for repair provisions. And in Italy, a petition demanding that the country stops blocking promising regulation has reached over 76,000 signatures and will be handed over to the Minister of Environment this week by community repair group Restarters Milano. But in the UK a similar petition has been overshadowed by Brexit negotiations. Meanwhile local community repair activists have come up with the Manchester Declaration, calling for more repairable products.

Citizens want longer lasting and easier to repair products and they get frustrated when things break much earlier than they should. Read the rest

Location: 

In 1940, eighteen-year old Juliet Armstrong is reluctantly recruited into the world of espionage. Sent to an obscure department of MI5 tasked with monitoring the comings and goings of British Fascist sympathizers, she discovers the work to be by turns both tedious and terrifying. But after the war has ended, she presumes the events of those years have been relegated to the past for ever. 

Ten years later, now a producer at the BBC, Juliet is unexpectedly confronted by figures from her past. A different war is being fought now, on a different battleground, but Juliet finds herself once more under threat. A bill of reckoning is due, and she finally begins to realize that there is no action without consequence.

In wartime, truth is so precious that she should always be attended by a bodyguard of lies.’

Winston Churchill

There are some writers who you’d like to read but just never seem to get around to. Until I’d read Transcription, in my case Kate Atkinson was one of those authors. For crime/mystery fans Kate Atkinson wrote the Jackson Brodie novels which were adapted for television as Case Histories with Jason Issacs in the lead role. Having enjoyed Case Histories, I’d planned to read the Jackson Brodie novels but just never did. Even with Transcription I’d picked it up a few times but put it down because there was something else which caught my eye. Happily, I did finally purchase Transcription and I’m certainly glad I did, I just may also get around to those Jackson Brodie novels as well.

Transcription begins in 1981 with Juliet Armstrong lying on a pavement having just been hit by a car after attending a Shostakovich concert in Wigmore Hall, London. She’s thinking of the rest of the Shostakovich series she’ll miss, her son in Italy, the impending royal wedding and, at 60 years of age, had her life been long enough or was it an “illusion, a dream that had happened to someone else”. From there Transcription takes us back to two important periods in Juliet’s life, 1950 when she’s working for the BBC in London and 1940 when she was recruited to work for MI5 during the Second World War, those periods are about to collide.

There are a number of aspects to Transcription which I enjoyed. The first of these is the strength of Juliet Armstrong as a character and first-person narrator. This style of novel is often difficult and although the narration does grate a little towards, especially in the 1950 sections of the book, there is always a gem of a thought which reminds you just how enjoyable this book is to read. Secondly, Kate Atkinson is a master at highlighting the mundane parts of life. The sheer boredom of Juliet transcribing secret meetings with German sympathisers, and yet almost getting to know them personally through their voices, is expertly captured. Also, there’s the unexpected sacrifices which war brings like being no longer able to get a good coffee because the Italian owner of her favourite café is now interned and the embarrassing task of going to the toilet in Wormword Scrubs, which MI5 used as a headquarters during WW2, because there’s no doors on the cubicles. Lastly, Transcription is also a very good thriller which carefully builds Juliet’s sense of doom that the things that she, and others, did during the war are now coming back to haunt her and she doesn’t know the price she’ll need to pay.

I started this review with a quote from Winston Churchill. It’s the epigraph at the beginning of Transcription and it perfectly encapsulates this beautiful book. Now, I must do something about those Jackson Brodie novels.

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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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

Peter Nason
Tampa/St. Petersburg Contributor

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

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

          Why Popular Tourist Spots Will Be Increasingly Privatized — And Access Will be Limited      Cache   Translate Page      

Although I have lived in Colorado almost continuously for 30 years, only on three or four occasions have I visited our most famous tourist attraction: Rocky Mountain National Park.

I avoid RMNP because that's where the tourists go. Traffic on the highways to the park is usually heavy, and tourists are found nearly everywhere inside the park. Needless to say, if one is looking for a quiet spot on an alpine mountainside, it's better to stick to the obscure areas in other parts of the state few non-natives bother to visit.

There are enormous upsides to tourists, of course. They pour their money into the local economy and tax coffers. This is great for local businesses. But for those locals who are seeking the same experiences the tourists are, it's often preferable to seek out locations where the tourists aren't.

Avoiding tourists is easy enough to do in a place where forests and mountains are spread out over thousands of square miles. But what to do when tourist crowds are unavoidable?

Thus, for some local residents in popular tourist areas, the non-material costs of large numbers of tourists outweigh the material benefits, even when the tourist-based revenues look great on paper.

As tourist totals grow worldwide along with the current economic expansion, this issue has become one of increasing importance for residents in the world's more popular tourist destinations. In Italy, for example, this is no mere academic question.

Venice in particular has started the feel the strain of huge tourism numbers. Although tourists have long had to pay for various museums and private, enclosed areas, the city is now talking about charging tourists to access even the city's central square — Piazza San Marco.

According to advocates for a tourist access fee, the city suffers when cruise ships bring in large groups of tourists who then crowd into Piazza San Marco, disrupting local commerce and creating inconvenience for the locals. What's worse, these tourists, it is claimed, do not spend enough at local shops and retailers to cover the material and immaterial costs of their visit.

Venetians are now looking for a way to manage the flow of tourists and their impact on the quality of life of the locals.

Other small locations have explored the idea of restricting tourist access. The small mountain villages of Civita di Bagnoregio and Polignano a Mare now charge for access as well.

Local residents are exempt: "Of course residents can come and go as they like," the mayor notes. They "don't have to buy the ticket."

These schemes, not surprisingly, are not without their critics. And not all locals agree.One local business group in Polignano a Mare averred "Installing turnstiles and charging people to enter one of the most famous historic villages in Italy is detrimental to what should be a public place.” The main square, the group tells us "should be part of the cultural heritage of the whole world.”

It's not hard to be sympathetic to a business group in this case. Naturally, business owners who benefit from tourist crowds are unlikely to appreciate what is essentially a tax imposed on tourists which both reduces the tourists' disposable income while limiting their numbers overall.

That's bad for business.

Note that this is not the argument, made, however. Instead, the argument is a very vague and amorphous appeal to cultural heritage.

The claim that these areas of the town are the "cultural heritage of the whole world" implies that these physical spaces belong to everyone. And, if something belongs to everyone, then it belong to no one.

The tourists themselves, who of course want free and unfettered access to these spaces, make similar claims.

In her article "Why I'll Boycott Venice If it Charges for Entry," Jackie Bryant complains that charging for access to Venice's main piazza would make it "another pre-packaged, commodified experience to our already over-marketed-to lives." To charge a fee would be to limit "access to a literal and figurative representation of a city’s life force."

I'll leave it up to you, dear reader, to ponder what a city's "life force" is, but it's pretty clear Bryant thinks a fee or tax is a bad thing. Moreover, she also appears to make the case that urban public spaces ought not be "commodified," owned, controlled, or characterized by any limitations on access.

Basically, Bryant makes the case that she deserves just as much access to the public spaces and infrastructure of Venice as do the locals who live there, pay taxes, and have much more skin in the game than any tourist.

At the UK's Independent, Justin Francis has noticed the aggressiveness of this position:

This arrogance in tourism extends to turning a blind eye to the disruption that such massive numbers of tourists cause to local lives. Venetians are becoming notorious for being hostile to tourists, but have these tourists paused to consider why a local might feel that way?

In my view, the local person has more right to enjoy walking freely through their city — where they live and pay taxes — than a tourist. This is their right. As such, Venice must protect these rights and ensure that the crowds are not so vast as to destroy the ability of local people (or tourists, for that matter) to enjoy the square.

After all, there isn't anything special about charging people to see a popular tourist destination. Most museums, for example, charge tourists for access, even if those museums contain artifacts that everyone agrees are part of "the cultural heritage of the whole world."

100 years ago this was not the problem it is today simply because the number of tourists was much, much smaller. Traveling to Venice, for example, was expensive, and few ordinary people had either the money or the leisure time to go there on vacation. The fact was that under these conditions there simply was no practical need to control tourist access. The wear and tear on the infrastructure produced by the small number of tourists was not large enough to be worth the trouble and inconvenience of controlling access.

Matters are different today, of course, and the city now experiences populations of tourists never imagined by the people who built the city and its public spaces.

Privatize the Tourist Spots

In the real world, though, in order for these places and artifacts to be preserved, they must have some type of ownership — complete with restrictions on access for non-owners.

But how to establish ownership?

Cleary, in many cases, public squares and similar spaces already have owners, either in the form of the local government or some association of local property owners who exercise joint ownership of the common areas in question.

That is, these places were never really unowned. It's just that access was never a significant problem until tourist numbers reached the volume we now see today.

Once ownership is established, how to control access?

This could be done through a small fee for entry for tourists, or by establishing a quota for the total number of people allowed in per day. This latter option could even be done by lottery, which means access could be determined on a basis other than "ability or willingness to pay."

The end result either way would be a decline in the total number of people using the public space, leading to lower infrastructure costs and lower non-monetary costs imposed on the locals.

But even if all these were administered without a hitch, we'd still, no doubt, hear complaints from those who don't want  limitations on tourist access. Small business owners who depend on tourist access, for instance, would be hurt by such measures. These people, after all, may view large numbers of tourists as but a tiny nuisance — or no nuisance at all — given the benefits of commerce with them.

As with so many similar issues — such as neighborhood limits on what you can grow in your front yard — there is no easy way to construct a policy that pleases everyone.

In this case, then, the answer lies in hyper-localization of policy. Clearly, if the tourist problem centers around a few specific locations in a city, it would be a terrible idea to adopt an city-wide policy that imposes tourist taxes everywhere in the city. (Murray Rothbard was right when he proposed splitting New York City into dozens of independent neighborhoods.)

The answer lies not in general "scalable" policy, but in small-scale, highly localized policies that address specific locations. This, of course, is what would happen in a truly private market, where no single entity would enjoy a city-wide monopoly.

A highly-localized policy would also allow those affected to relocate away from the area affected by the new tax or quota. Meanwhile, limits on tourists in one area would drive tourists to other areas of the city, possibly to areas that would love to have more tourist traffic.

Ultimately, though, the idea that every public street, plaza, or waterway belongs to "the world" is a fantasy that creates unsustainable strains on local populations and local  infrastructure. As the world's population grows, access to what we think of as "public" spaces will need to be managed more carefully — which means access will need to be controlled. Once access is controlled, these locations will then have undergone a form of "privatization," in which access remains "public" or open to some, but closed to outsiders and those deemed to be non-owners. That doesn't sound very romantic to a tourist, of course, but it's the reality we now live in.

          White House intensifies confusion, fear on U.S.-China deal      Cache   Translate Page      
WASHINGTON – The Trump administration raised doubts Tuesday about the substance of a U.S.-China trade cease-fire, contributing to a broad stock market plunge and intensifying fears of a global economic slowdown. 

Investors had initially welcomed the truce that the administration said was reached over the weekend in Argentina between Presidents Donald Trump and Xi Jinping – and sent stocks up Monday. But on Tuesday, after a series of confusing and conflicting words from Trump and some senior officials, stocks tumbled, with the Dow Jones shedding about 800 points, or 3.1 percent.

White House aides have struggled to explain the details of what the two countries actually agreed on. And China has not confirmed that it made most of the concessions that the Trump administration has claimed.

“The sense is that there’s less and less agreement between the two sides about what actually took place,” said Willie Delwiche, an investment strategist at Baird. “There was a rally in the expectation that something had happened. The problem is that something turned out to be nothing.”

Other concerns contributed to the stock sell-off, including falling long-term bond yields. Those lower rates suggested that investors expect the U.S. economy to slow, along with global growth, and possibly fall into recession in the coming year or two.

John Williams, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, also unnerved investors by telling reporters Tuesday that he supports further Fed rate hikes. His remarks renewed fears that the Fed may miscalculate and raise rates so high or so fast as to depress growth.

The disarray surrounding the China deal coincides with a global economy that faces other challenges: Britain is struggling to negotiate its exit from the European Union. Italy’s government is seeking to spend and borrow more, which could elevate interest rates and stifle growth.

And in the U.S., home sales have fallen sharply in the past year as mortgage rates have jumped.

Trump and White House aides have promoted the apparent U.S.-China agreement in Buenos Aires as a historic breakthrough that would ease trade tensions and potentially reduce tariffs. They announced that China had agreed to buy many more American products and to negotiate over the administration’s assertions that Beijing steals American technology. But by Tuesday morning, Trump was renewing his tariff threats in a series of tweets.

“President Xi and I want this deal to happen, and it probably will,” Trump tweeted. “But if not remember, I am a Tariff Man. When people or countries come in to raid the great wealth of our Nation, I want them to pay for the privilege of doing so.”

Trump added that a 90-day timetable for negotiators to reach a deeper agreement had begun and that his aides would see “whether or not a REAL deal with China is actually possible.”

He revisited the issue later Tuesday with a tweet that said: “We are either going to have a REAL DEAL with China, or no deal at all – at which point we will be charging major Tariffs against Chinese product being shipped into the United States. Ultimately, I believe, we will be making a deal – either now or into the future. China does not want Tariffs!”

The president’s words had the effect of making the weekend agreement, already a vague and uncertain one, seem even less likely to produce a long-lasting trade accord.

“We expect the relationship between the world’s two largest economies to remain contentious,” Moody’s Investors Service said in a report. “Narrow agreements and modest concessions in their ongoing trade dispute will not bridge the wide gulf in their respective economic, political and strategic interests.”

Among the conflicting assertions that White House officials made was over whether China had actually agreed to drop its 40 percent tariffs on U.S. autos.

In addition, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said Tuesday on the Fox Business Network that China agreed to buy $1.2 trillion of U.S. products. But Mnuchin added, “If that’s real” – thereby raising some doubt – it would close the U.S. trade deficit with China, and “We have to have a negotiated agreement and have this on paper.”

Many economists have expressed skepticism that very much could be achieved to bridge the vast disagreements between the two countries in just 90 days.

“The actual amount of concrete progress made at this meeting appears to have been quite limited,” Alec Phillips and other economists at Goldman Sachs wrote in a research note.

During the talks in Buenos Aires, Trump agreed to delay a scheduled escalation in U.S. tariffs on many Chinese goods, from 10 percent to 25 percent, that had been set to take effect Jan. 1. Instead, the two sides are to negotiate over U.S. complaints about China’s trade practices, notably that it has used predatory tactics to try to achieve supremacy in technology. These practices, according to the administration and outside analysts, include stealing intellectual property and forcing companies to turn over technology to gain access to China’s market.

In return for the postponement in the higher U.S. tariffs, the White House said China had agreed to step up its purchases of U.S. farm, energy and industrial goods. Most economists noted that the two countries remain far apart on the sharpest areas of disagreement, which include Beijing’s subsidies for strategic Chinese industries, in addition to forced technology transfers and intellectual property theft.

Chief economic adviser Larry Kudlow acknowledged those challenges in remarks Tuesday morning.

“China’s discussed these things with the U.S. many times down through the years and the results have not been very good,” he said. “So this time around, as I said, I’m hopeful, we’re covering more ground than ever ... So we’ll see.”

Complicating the challenge, Trump’s complaints strike at the heart of the Communist Party’s state-led economic model and its plans to elevate China to political and cultural leadership by creating global champions in robotics and other fields.

“It’s impossible for China to cancel its industry policies or major industry and technology development plans,” said economist Cui Fan of the University of International Business and Economics in Beijing.

Trump had tweeted Sunday that China agreed to “reduce and remove” its 40 percent tariff on cars imported from the U.S. Mnuchin said Monday that there was a “specific agreement” on the auto tariffs.

Yet Kudlow said later that there was no “specific agreement” regarding auto trade, though he added, “We expect those tariffs to go to zero.”

Magic Soul Presents V by Kai-Lun Hu - DVD"V", a brain child of Kai-Lun Hu, means the number Five, Variety, and Victory.

That is, Kai-Lun shares with you Five routines, which are Various and will bring you the Victorious experience in magic performing.

Kai-Lun is one of the top magicians in Taiwan, and he's talented in almost every categories of magic, especially in close-up art. From all his creations in the past 20 more years, Kai-Lun handpicked for you these 5 pieces which are highly entertaining, practical, and magical.

Now, let's follow Kai-Lun to his V-land, where seeing is believing!

I - No more box
The no-box version of the classic Dean's Box effect. Equally amazing but with less props!

II - Co-in Box
The magician throws the playing cards away? With the empty card box, it's show time for the coins, an extravaganza of vanishing and reappearing. However, the playing cards won't be away quietly...What's next?

III - Kai-Lun Roulette
Undistinguishable envelops with bills, only one of them has the real money. Will the real money survive from the heartless Scissorhands? The suspenseful Kai-Lun Roulette.

IV - Bookmark
The probability to predict a selected card from a full deck is at most 1/52, and it's like looking for a needle in a haystack to predict a random phrase selected from a random book by a random audience. "Bookmark" provides a simple and straightforward way for you to challenge the impossible prediction.

V - Holely Monte
The signature of the audience on a card with a punched hole disappeared. Then the hole also disappeared in the blink of an eye. The signed holey card mysteriously re-forms in the envelop put on the table in the beginning. Kai-Lun gives a new touch to the classic 3 Card Monte routine.

Bonus:
Phantom
A super hilarious routine for parlor shows. The magician travels through the space like a phantom. The person on the stage is AMAZED, while the audiences are AMUSED.

We will continue to defend our legal right to the statue. The law and facts in this case do not warrant restitution to the Italian government of a statue that has been on public display in Los Angeles for nearly a half century. The statue is of ancient Greek origin, was found in international waters in 1964, and was purchased by the Getty Museum in 1977, years after Italy’s highest court, the Court of Cassation, concluded in 1968 there was no evidence that the statue belonged to Italy. The court has not offered any written explanation of the grounds for its decision, which is inconsistent with its holding 50 years ago that there was no evidence of Italian ownership. Moreover, the statue is not and has never been part of Italy’s cultural heritage. Accidental discovery by Italian citizens does not make the statue an Italian object.

          Spose bambine: un problema sociale ancora irrisolto      Cache   Translate Page      
https://www.aneddoticamagazine.com/wp-content/uploads/Girls_carrying_water_in_India.jpg

There are problems nobody talks anymore. Not because they have been solved. Or because they only occur in far countries. Just because, in the face of problems that you can not solve, people prefer looking away.


One of these is the case of child marriages. According to a recent UNICEF report, the problem has reached terrible dimensions: all around the world there are at least 125 million child brides. About a third of them (over 40 million) have been granted in marriage when they were younger than 15. And, although the percentage is slightly decreasing, the increase of world population is making the problem worse: according to UNICEF, in 2050 there will be 300 million child marriages!

“The sheer number of girls involved, and what it represents in terms of lost childhoods and lives conditioned to always make it clear how urgent is banning the practice of child marriage,” said the executive director of UNICEF, Anthony Lake.


Girls, sometime babies, who instead playing with dolls, drop out of school and are locked in a house where they live submissive to their husbands and in-laws. Child brides rarely have the possibility to complete studies, for them is high the risk to become victims of violence and to contract HIV. And even when they survive, quite often it is impossible for them to acquire the skills needed to find a decent job. This generate a perverse circuit that damages economy of the poor countries and causes inter-generational cycles of poverty.


A problem that is difficult to reduce: many of these child brides live in the countryside and in extreme poverty conditions. Social and economic pressures often encourage early marriages. To try and find a justification someone even tried and resort non-existent traditions (like the one that says that parents who allow a child in marriage before the start of the menstrual cycle, will go to heaven). The result is that for a girl belonging to the poorest 20% of the population the probability of getting married when child has not changed in the last 25 years!

If the trend will not change, in 2050 half of all child brides will be in Africa. The problem relates more to the Africa (70 percent of cases): here often families look for in these marriages a source of salvation to deal with the absolute poverty.

But the situation is serious in Asia as well. Among Syrian refugees in Jordan the rate of early marriages has grown from 18% to 25% (data 2013). And situation is getting worse: before the war in Syria, the average of marriages involving girls under the age of 18 was only 13%.

In many countries, the problem is also the indifference of the authorities: in Nepal, despite a 1963 law prohibiting child marriage and requiring the 20 years as the minimum age for marriages, the police rarely intervene to enforce these rules. Even the goal of eradicating the phenomenon by 2020 is nuanced: now the new goal is 2030. The report “Our time to sing and play” of Human Rights Watch, denounces the social and economic pressures that girls are forced to live in Nepal, often with the consent of the families.

It seems there is a relationship between the level of wealth and the phenomenon of child brides. The best results were achieved in the “rich” countries; in poor countries there have shown no substantial improvements.


Even in “developed countries” like USA or Europe, child marriages are a social problem. There are many arranged marriages between adult immigrants in the US and young girls from the countries of origin. The numbers are frightening: early marriages are a problem in many of American States. In Virginia, where between 2004-2013, there were approximately at least 4,500 cases of marriages with minors (over 200 of them got married at age 15 or younger and about 90% of underage spouses are girls). In Maryland, where there have been over 3,000 cases of marriages with children. In Texas, where cases recorded between 2009-2013, there were over 700 (aged 15 to 17 years). In New Jersey were 3,499 cases of marriages with minors (most of them had 16 or 17 years, but 178 were aged between 10 and 15!). Similar data in other states. These data confirm that even in America laws fail protecting children. Most states require that the minimum legal age of consent for marriage is 18 years. But exemptions are permitted if parents of a minor give their consent or if a girl is pregnant. Even polygamy causes the number of child brides not decrease: often these marriages are religious only and are not recognized by the state. This does not prevent you from being equally celebrated in many communities.


In other countries (especially in Latin America), the percentage of girls spending did not show a significant drop in the last twenty years.


Europe is not immune to this disease. The UN Council for Human Rights adopted several resolutions concerning violence against women and gender discrimination (one focused specifically on early and forced marriages: they are considered violations of human rights and deny fundamental rights such as the right to ‘education and health – including sexual and reproductive health – as well as being among the causes of poverty among women and an obstacle to sustainable development). Italy has ratified the Council of Europe Convention on preventing and combating violence against women and domestic violence (better known as the Istanbul Convention). Quite often, however, authorities are unable to act. Sometime marriages of brides girls do not take place in Italy: the victims are taken by deception in other countries (such as Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, Albania or Turkey) where occur arranged marriages.

In other European countries, early marriages are widespread in recent years. In Bosnia, for example: girls arrive at the age of 14-16 years and try to get married hoping to get out of families (often destroyed). The only difference is that in this case often weddings are among peers without prospects (alcohol consumption by men has shown a significant increase); consequently marriages do not last long and there are serious problems of coexistence. Again, however many times early marriage leads to early school leaving (a phenomenon that particularly affects girls).


Today there is no country in which there are no cases of child brides, and that, once again, the measures taken were unable to solve a major problem of the Millennium or at least stem it.

          Pioneering HIV Researcher Mathilde Krim Remembered For Her Activism      Cache   Translate Page      
With the death of biologist Mathilde Krim on Monday, at the age of 91 at her home in New York, the world lost a pioneering scientist, activist and fundraiser in AIDS research. She is being widely praised this week for her clarity, compassion and leadership. Amid the panic, confusion and discrimination of the HIV epidemic's earliest days, Krim stood out — using science and straight talk, in the 1980s and beyond, to dispel fear, stigma, and misinformation among politicians and the public. "She has likely literally saved hundreds of thousands if not millions of lives because of what she did during the initial days and years of the epidemic," says Corey Johnson , speaker of the New York City Council. "Every single one of us living with HIV today who are on medicines, where now we can live and thrive — it's because of people like Dr.Mathilde Krim." Born in Italy in 1926, Krim received her doctorate in biology from the University of Geneva in Switzerland. She became a steadfast activist for
          New Diorama Season Announce Two Week Takeover Of VAULT Festival 2019      Cache   Translate Page      

This year, New Diorama Theatre and VAULT Festival, two of the most exciting supporters of new theatre in the UK, are joining forces to showcase some of the country's most thrilling theatre companies.

New Diorama have curated the very best theatre shows from their supported ensembles, and programmed them together for the first time, to create an unmissable season of new work - to be presented at VAULT Festival 2019.

David Byrne, Artistic and Executive Director of New Diorama says,

'Joining forces with VAULT Festival gives NDT's supported companies a direct line into the biggest theatre festival in London. Following our successful first year of the NDT/Underbelly Untapped Award in Edinburgh, this new partnership felt like a natural next step - ensuring New Diorama is presenting work wherever there are large, new audiences, and exciting opportunities to be seized. The shows in this line-up represent some of the best, new companies NDT has recently championed. I hope this new partnership with VAULT will be long and fruitful!'

The NDT/VAULT Takeover begins with a week of hit shows, presented back-to-back:

Co-produced by 2017 Hull City of Culture, written by Olivier Award-winner Jon Brittain and half of cabaret duo Freaky and Manish, we present Silent Uproar's A Super Happy Story (About Feeling Super Sad). This Fringe First award-winning musical is a whirlwind of comedy, songs and glitter about how it's OK not to be OK.

They stormed the Edinburgh Fringe, won the Underbelly Untapped Award and The Stage Award in 2018, and now they're going to be playing to their biggest audiences yet! Nouveau Riche's sell-out hit Queens of Sheba is four Black Woman sharing their explosive true stories of misogynoir, music, nights out and, of course, (white) men.

The wait is over! Multi-award-winning comedy troupe Kill The Beast are finally brining their 1970s horror movie-set, comedy to London for an extended run. Director's Cut welcomes you to the worst film never made. Thankfully there's only one scene left to shoot...

And, for two nights only, the mighty Pretend Men return from touring the world to present their hit comedy blockbuster Police Cops: an hour of action-packed, adrenaline fuelled physical comedy, cinematic style (feat. uncompromising facial hair).

Headlining the NDT/VAULT take-over, is The Faction's unmissable adaptation of The Talented Mr Ripley, breathing fresh life into Patricia Highsmith's extraordinary psychological thriller on ambition, escapism, and murder - as New Yorker Tom Ripley cons and murders his way across 1950s Italy.

          What should be done to safeguard the European bond market?      Cache   Translate Page      

The completion of Greece’s financial rescue programme this summer has been highly regarded by many policymakers as the end of the Eurozone crisis. However, the current confrontation between the European Commission and Italy over fiscal rules has clearly demonstrated that the Eurozone is still exposed to further bond market breakdowns. Despite numerous Eurozone institutional reforms, such as the establishment of the European Stability Mechanism (ESM), which was set up as an international financial institution by the EU states to assist European countries in severe financial distress, the presence of major deficiencies within the European bond market persist. The level of Sovereign debt across European counties is still at a strong level. The recent implementation of unconventional monetary policies by the European Central Bank (ECB), at least within the shorter-term, have proven to provide a sufficient degree of protection against market turbulence. Nevertheless, as the re-occurrence of such unconventional measures seem to be unlikely, together with normalisation of monetary policy, further bond market dislocations in the Eurozone, await. Without the ECB’s intervention, financial...

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

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

Antoni Gaudí (1852–1926, Spain), Casa Batlló, Barcelona, 1905–1906. Photograph: Helen Ronan. © 2018 Davis Art Images. (8S-29953)

Christmas in 2018 came early, namely, this past summer. I always feel as if I’m getting Christmas presents when we receive new images of art from museums, or receive new photography of artwork already in our database. Well, this year, the presents came in the form of new photography of Antoni Gaudí’s architecture in Barcelona, thanks to one of our editors who went there on vacation. She’s an art historian, so obviously she knows what she should shoot!

Casa Batlló by Gaudí does not get as much “press” as some of his other projects, but it is equally gorgeous and equally indicative of his amazing design prowess. Gaudí was a visionary pioneer of architectural forms that contain elements present in Art Nouveau, the Arts and Crafts Movement, and numerous historical revival styles popular at the time. Educated in the revival styles, he was most drawn to Gothic Revival and a host of experimental architects such as Eugène Viollet-le-Duc (1814–1879). Also, one cannot ignore the ages-old influence of Islamic architecture after their domination of the Iberian Peninsula. This clearly comes through in Gaudí’s love of ceramic tile decoration, seen above in the façade of Casa Batlló.

Josep Batlló i Casanovas (died 1934) was a wealthy textile industrialist. He bought an existing townhouse in the Beaux-Arts Classicism revival style. He offered for Gaudí to tear it down completely and create a new masterpiece from scratch, as Gaudí did with Casa Milà. Gaudí instead gutted it and created this masterpiece. Although it is tempting to attribute Gaudí’s organic forms to Art Nouveau, his organic vision was a personal combination of all his many historical interests. I think it easily fits into a Gothic-influenced style.

Antoni Gaudí, Casa Batlló, Barcelona, interior of second floor (Piano Nobile or “Noble Floor”) main suite. Photo: Helen Ronan. © 2018 Davis Art Images. (8S-29954)

Is Frank Gehry (born 1929) the only architect who designs without any straight walls? Years before American architectural pioneer Frank Lloyd Wright (1867–1959), Gaudí conceived of domestic architecture in which rooms flowed seamlessly from one to another to produce architecture that emulated a sculptural mass. Throughout his career, he followed a unique vision in which he designed buildings imitative of living organisms, where interior and exterior are joined in a natural environment.

Gaudí was inspired by the nearby marine environment of the Mediterranean in his decoration of the façade and interior. From the windows on the second-floor suite to the tiles of the light well, navy blue and ochre—the colors of the Mediterranean and its rocks—dominate the color scheme. Not only do walls undulate in imitation of waves, but the tile decoration is imitative of fish scales. The windows in the second-floor main suite imitate water bubbles.

Gaudí’s biggest project, which was only about twenty percent finished when he died in 1926, was the Basilica of the Holy Family (Sagrada Familia) in Barcelona. The church was conceived of as a sister church to the 1500s Basilica of the Holy House (Santa Casa) in Loreto, Italy, a shrine to the Virgin Mary. Sagrada Familia was commissioned by members of the Associati
