We can learn from others mistakes and efforts to prevent poisoning.

Carbon monoxide safety, we are all in this together.

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

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

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

Are you in the know?

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

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

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

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

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

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

What is in the air you are breathing right now?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

          Slog AM: The Alaskan Way Viaduct Is Set to Come Down, Mayor Durkan Hates Electric Scooters      Cache   Translate Page

Mukilteo residents don’t fuck around: Neighbors have united for 13 years to fight against the development of 112 houses in Mukilteo, reports KING5. Yesterday morning, they banded together and used their cars to physically block a flatbed carrying a bulldozer. The community’s alleged reason for banding together against the development is that “the land is at risk for landslides and erosion could send polluting sediment into the nearby salmon-bearing Picnic Point Creek.”

Hooray! They’re all set to take down the precarious Alaskan Way viaduct: Every time I’ve had the unfortunate opportunity to travel along its path—many over the years—I can’t help but visualize the utter chaos that would be if the Big One were to strike at that very moment. Which level of this shanty-way would be worst to be on? I'd wonder. But visualize no more! Kiewit Infrastructure West, the contractor for the demolition of the Viaduct is ready-to-fucking-go. According to the Seattle Times, the $75 million demolition will take 5 ½ months. Listen close for the sound of destruction this February and take solace knowing that piece of junk is being done away with for good.

Mayor Durkan hates scooters: Doug Trumm at The Urbanist has the scoop on Mayor Jenny Durkan’s disdain for the two-wheel transport vehicles. She says if we put them out in the public that we’re going to “have people use them knowing they’re going to get hurt,” and she doesn’t “think that’s responsible.” Doug points out that in our country “37,000 people die annually in car crashes.” Honestly, the only scooter-related issue that bothers me are the jokers at skateparks on those two-wheeled tragedies. Parents, do your child a favor and buy them a skateboard (and a helmet).

Woman charged with murder extradited from Japan: The body of Toshio Ota was found in the Columbia River in August of 2012. After a woman named Kyung Hee Dowdle was charged with first-degree murder for the killing, she fled to Japan. Last week she was extradited back to the U.S. and booked into jail on Thursday on a $5 million bail. “According to the charges,” reports the Seattle Times, “Dowdle rented a minivan and paid two men $150 each to help her move and dispose of a large suitcase she said was filled with books.”

Don’t throw away your N95 masks yet! Wildfires ain’t going anywhere, and in fact, experts say the risk they pose is only getting worse in Western Washington. A varied group of authorities on the subject gathered Monday at a conference called Managing Western Washington Wildfire Risk in a Changing Climate. They see the number of fires increasing on the Western side of our state, where populations aren’t as used to them, and generally less ready to react, so the main concern at the conference was figuring out how to educate the populace on the risks, and what to do in threatening scenarios.

So pretty... But soooo cold:

Ever heard of McNeil Island in Pierce County? Neither had we. Alas, Washington State is spending $500,000 on cleaning up 100-year old debris off of the polluted little Puget Sound island. KING5 reports that “the only residents on the six-square-mile island in southern Puget Sound are the 200 sex offenders living in a special state facility.” But the state isn’t cleaning up the island for them, they are cleaning the island to create long stretches of undisturbed shoreline to improve the conditions for aquatic wildlife.

Hold up: Just one second. Whose grandma makes doughnuts of any variety? And why haven’t I met her yet?! My grandma never made any doughnuts. She did, however, make sausages and potato pancakes!

Another one bites the dust: Scratch Deli in Capitol Hill is set to close, according to Capitol Hill Blog. Scratch opened on 12th in 2012, and I’m sad to say I never even got a chance to go. They’re slated to close later this month, so if you are a fan, or want to try it, this may be your last few weeks to go.

Did you know the U.S. had a government owned international news network? Because they do! And NPR says that “President Franklin Roosevelt created the VOA during World War II to broadcast behind enemy lines.” VOA stands for Voice of America, and they claim to be a “free press.” It became a relevant thing to bring up when President Trump recently tweeted that “Something has to be done, including the possibility of the United States starting our own Worldwide Network to show the World the way we really are, GREAT!” Hey, you learn something new every day, it’s just, you kind of hope the President isn’t learning things about the government he is running at the same rate you are.

What kind of animal is this, you ask? It is my spirit animal, on these cold days. This is absolutely my mood. Too bad, unlike this creature, I got shit to do.

          Unsere Trends 2019: Idealismus geht – Realismus kommt      Cache   Translate Page handmade and vintage goods

Und eins, zwei, drei geht das Jahr 2018 zu Ende. Es war ein Jahr voller magischer Motive – Einhörner, du und deine magische Ausstrahlung – Pastelle und andere himmlischen Dinge. Etsy-Shopper sind diesen fantastischen Trends massenhaft entgegen gekommen und kauften Produkte, die wie eine kleine Flucht vor turbulenten Weltereignissen daher kamen.

Auf dem Weg ins neue Jahr prognostiziere ich, dass sich die Trends weg von den idealistischen Ablenkungen und hin zur Realität bewegen werden. Wie meine Vorhersage für Wabi Sabi in 2018: hier feierten Verbraucher das vollkommen Unvollkommene um sich herum. Im kommenden Jahr nehmen wir aktiv unsere eigenen, individuellen Realitäten an, egal, wie sie auch aussehen – vom lebendigen Leben bis zum Maximum oder einen faulen, faulen Tag auf der Couch. Die Käufer wollen „real zu werden“ – deshalb erklären wir 2019 offiziell zum Jahr des Echten! Die Verwendung rein natürlicher Produkte, der Fokus auf Nachhaltigkeit und realitätsnahe Deko spielen beim Thema Wohnen eine wichtige Rolle. Die Welt ist nicht perfekt – und du musst nicht so tun, als wäre sie das – aber du kannst auch etwas dagegen tun.



Wir sagen es jetzt: Burnt Orange wird üüüberall sein. Während Millennial Pink und Ultraviolett noch ihre Momente haben werden, bin ich gespannt, wie dieser erdige Ton unsere Zuhause und unsere Outfits erobert. Diese von der Wüste inspirierte Farbe ist erdig, aber gleichzeitig auch erfrischend und natürlich – genau das, was wir 2019 brauchen.



Einer der beliebtesten Trends im Jahr 2018 war Wabi-Sabi, ein Konzept, das ich erstmals zu Beginn des Jahres vorhergesagt habe: Der erste Schritt weg vom ultra-minimalistischen Look. Im Jahr 2019 werden wir größer, mutiger und heller, während wir unser Leben laut ausleben. Maximalismus ist der Moment, auf den wir heimlich gewartet haben – eine Rebellion gegen die oft unrealistische Suche nach Ordnung in unserem Leben. Was früher als Unordnung galt, liegt heute im Trend – kollidierende Muster, Stile und Farben sind erlaubt. Für diesen eklektischen Trend gibt es keine Grenzen!



Terrarien machen Platz für die hellere, autarke Version: das Herbarium. Diese von japanischem Stil inspirierten Kollektionen von Blumen und Kräutern reichen von schwebendem Laub bis hin zu gepressten Sträußchen und sind die perfekte Lösung, um die Natur ins Haus zu bringen und sie auf schöne Weise zu bewahren. Praktisch: Herbarien erfordern nicht die ständige Pflege eines Terrariums, was sie zum ultimativen Einrichtungsstück für all diejenigen macht, die keine Zeit haben, sich einen grünen Daumen wachsen zu lassen. Wir haben einen klaren Aufwärtstrend bei der Suche nach dieser Art von getrockneten Blumen festgestellt: Allein in den letzten drei Monaten wurde auf über 281.000 Mal nach „gepressten Blumen“ gesucht.


Von Erdtönen inspirierte Styles werden 2019 mit sogenannten Southwestern-Motiven einhergehen. Ich spreche hier von rauen Texturen und natürlichen Stoffen – eine klare Abkehr von den fantastischen Motiven des Jahres 2018. Den erste Blick auf den Southwestern-Stil konnten wir bei einigen Etsy-Verkäufern erhaschen, die Boho-Krawatten, wüsteninspirierte Illustrationen und fette, gewebte Textilien in ihr virtuelles Schaufenster gestellt haben. Mehr davon und noch viele andere Motive bringt 2019!



Die ewigen Einhörnern verabschieden sich und wir begrüßen ein neues Wesen: das Faultier. Ähnlich wie ihre eigenen Bewegungen sind Faultiere seit 2002 langsam auf dem Vormarsch – auch dank der Charaktere in einigen beliebten Animationsfilmen.

          India signs two MoUs, one on currency swap with UAE      Cache   Translate Page      
Raveesh Kumar, the official spokesperson for the ministry of external affairs on Tuesday tweeted about signing of two agreements.

The two MoUs (Memorandum of Understanding) were signed during the visit of Sushma Swaraj, External Affairs Minister to UAE. One of the Memorandum is on development cooperation in Africa while the other is a currency swap agreement with United Arab Emirates.

Swaraj, who arrived in Dubai on Monday on a two-day visit, was received by the foreign minister of the UAE ahead of the UAE-India Joint Commission meeting.

Thanks to the currency swap, traders in the two countries can exchange with their local currencies. This will thereby reduce the need for a third benchmark currency like the US dollar.

India and UAE's bilateral trade is valued at $50 billion annually. In fact, UAE is India's sixth-largest source for oil imports and hosts a 3.3 million-strong Indian community.

India's exports to UAE (according to Commerce Ministry data for 2017-18) is estimated at $28.14 billion (9.27% of total exports). India has a diverse export basket. This includes fresh fruits, agricultural products, Shrimps, prawns, motor engines, reciprocating pistons and even ball point pens.

India imports basically comprises of crude oil. Imports according to commerce ministry data (2017-18) stands at $ 21.73 billion. This is 4.6% of India's total imports. India's import basket with the UAE includes Liquefied Natural Gas, Petroleum oils obtained from bituminous minerals, and Liquefied Propane.

The currency swap could help ease traders and companies engaged in the import-export of crude oil with UAE.

Further details are awaited to confirm the product categories and also the value of the currency swap.

India and Japan signed a currency swap last month during Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to Japan. The currency swap with Japan valued at $75 billion.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

          South Korea Shuts the Gates      Cache   Translate Page      

In late 2016, South Koreans took to the streets for months of massive protests against government corruption that became known as the “Candlelight Revolution.” At one point, crowds in Seoul were estimated at over 1 million. The overwhelmingly peaceful protests deposed President Park Geun-hye and landed her behind bars. The protesters achieved tangible results, garnering international praise for their organized, nonviolent political activism.

Now, hundreds of thousands of Koreans are back in the streets, and though they haven’t swelled to quite the same size as the anti-Park demonstrations, they are once again too large to ignore. These protests, which began in June, are against the presence of about 500 Yemeni refugees on the island of Jeju (the nation’s southernmost territory and a tourism hot spot billed as “Korea’s Hawaii”). On an island with 660,000 residents, and in a nation of over 50 million, it’s a negligible amount of people—especially considering that South Korea has the 11th-largest economy in the world. But 500 is considered far too many in a country that accepts fewer refugees than almost any comparable nation. (Only about 4 percent of applicants are accepted.)

More than 3 million Yemenis have been displaced by the brutal war between a U.S.-backed Saudi Arabia–led coalition and the Houthi rebels, and tens of millions more are at risk of cholera and malnutrition. The U.N. has dubbed it the greatest humanitarian crisis in the world. But many Koreans are convinced that the Yemenis are somehow “fake” refugees because they have cellphones and clean clothes.

For a country intimately familiar with wartime refugees resulting from its own bloody conflict, the hostile attitudes can be difficult for foreigners to grasp. Since 1953, up to 300,000 North Koreans have fled the country, and over 30,000 defectors currently live in South Korea.

The Yemenis began trickling in from nearby majority-Muslim country Malaysia (also featuring visa-free access, leading many Yemenis to seek refuge there initially) in December 2017, which is when budget carrier AirAsia began direct flights from Kuala Lumpur to Jeju. Previously, the resort island waived visa requirements for many foreign travelers to promote tourism (which has resulted in legions of Chinese travelers drawn by its famous beaches; this is yet another sore spot for locals). The government has since slammed that window shut, removing Yemen from the list of accepted countries for visa-free entry in June. The move elicited international criticism and appeared to be a concession to the protesters.

An anti-asylum online petition broke records last summer, drawing over 700,000 signatures and forcing President Moon Jae-in (himself a child of North Korean wartime refugees) to vow tighter screening and enhanced border control. The government has so far refused to grant the Yemenis official refugee status, instead giving them one-year residence permits and initially containing them to Jeju—where they have received a frigid reception for a subtropical volcanic island.

“I suppose I have a negative viewpoint because Muslims have had a lot of criminals and terrorists in other places” says Park Jong-hee, a 21-year-old college student. “I’m afraid of sexual violence against women.”

Song Jae-hyun, a 38-year-old entertainer, is somewhere in the middle. “Korea does need more policies to promote acceptance of different cultures. Yet there are also many foreign criminals in Jeju, and the people there are concerned about damage to their way of life.”

Widespread youth unemployment and economic disenfranchisement play a role in these sentiments, as does the monocultural country’s deeply ingrained xenophobia and racism. Like its neighbor Japan, South Korea is a country where the foreign population is below 5 percent. Some Jeju residents are so afraid of the asylum-seekers that they no longer allow their children to play outside. There is a widespread perception that the Yemeni refugees are potential job stealers, rapists, or terrorists—or simply that they won’t assimilate.

“The Yemeni refugees do not accept different cultures. My friends in Jeju have told me about this,” Park Jong-hee adds.

The debate over the refugees comes at the same time as a controversy involving K-pop’s biggest act, the boy band BTS. Last month they were featured on Time magazine’s cover, after previously being named one of the 25 most influential people on the internet. In September, the group was invited to speak at the U.N. General Assembly, following in the footsteps of entertainer-activists like Emma Watson. But the group has also come under fire for several incidents, including one where a member was photographed smiling and wearing a Nazi-era SS Death’s Head hat, and another where they posed for a crass photo shoot at a Holocaust memorial. More recently, another member wore a T-shirt depicting two atom-bomb mushroom clouds and a slogan appearing to celebrate the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, leading to more friction between the always-tense relations between Japan and Korea.

Lee Taek-Gwang Lee, a cultural critic and professor at Kyung Hee University in Seoul, told the Guardian these scandals are symptomatic of the nation’s struggle to reconcile nationalist sentiments with its growing global cultural presence: “BTS insist they are a global brand, but their identity is rooted in Korean nationalism, as it is with many young South Koreans,” he said.

Bigotry and xenophobia can’t shoulder all of the blame—economic conditions and insecurity about the future are also driving these protests. Youth unemployment nationwide is close to 10 percent, and that likely contributed to an all-time low of marriages in 2017. Like their American counterparts, young Koreans are putting off marriage until they feel more economically stable. A popular internet meme among young Koreans is “Hell Joseon,” (meaning “Hell Korea”) which can refer to economic inequality, youth unemployment, the notoriously brutal Korean work culture that is literally killing people, and a host of other social issues. Predictably, President Moon’s approval rating has been falling as the unemployment rate has risen.

Of course, the angriest voices are the loudest, but there’s certainly no shortage of Koreans with more sympathetic views. Lee Jin, a 36-year-old academic director at a private academy (or hagwon) views the refugees through a historical lens. “During and after the Korean War, we got a lot of international help from other countries. It’s important to do something in return, and help these refugees,” she says.

“Racism does contribute, but this young generation doesn’t have a clue about the past, and the favors our country was given—favors that we need to return to others. A lot of people simply don’t want to share even any little piece of the pie.”

Some Jeju residents have been welcoming, opening their homes to these asylum-seekers. Local civic groups, religious organizations, and expat teachers have teamed up to create the Jeju People’s Coalition for Refugee Rights, working to provide food, housing, and Korean language classes for the Yemenis.

Esmail al-Qublani, a 31-year-old Yemeni refugee currently still in Jeju, says that “overall, it was a great welcome. Because this is a tourist island, we actually haven’t encountered much xenophobia.” The hardest part for al-Qublani, a journalist in his home country, has been employment. “Finding work on Jeju island has been very difficult, but now there are more opportunities since a lot of us have traveled to the mainland.” So why are they being labeled “fake” by some Koreans?

“You’d have to ask them,” he says, his voice heavy with exhaustion. “We are only humans. We are refugees from a war. If they can get to know us, they will come to understand our reality by getting to know us one by one—if they want. We’re easy to make friends with.”

Lee Yu-lim, an unemployed 24-year-old woman, noted that “they came to Korea because their life was so hard. I feel empathy for them. And not all Islamic people are terrorists.” As far as the economic effects, Lee sees it as a positive: “They can start businesses, create more jobs, and help to grow the economy.” Indeed, a Yemeni restaurant opened in November: Wardah (Arabic for flower) already seems pretty popular with the locals.

But the hostility remains. Lee Hyang, the leader of an anti-refugee activist group in Jeju, told a Bloomberg reporter the refugees are “not only a threat to our people, but they’re also a threat to our future generation, because of our youth unemployment issue … they’re not even real refugees. If they were women or babies, I would believe them, but they’re able-bodied men. They’re fake, like fake news.”

The bottom line is that even after months, South Korea has refused to grant even a single Yemeni refugee status—although in October, 339 were granted the humanitarian visa. This means they can finally leave the island and travel within the mainland peninsula, but their ability to seek employment is curtailed, and they won’t receive rights that official refugee status would grant (among them health care, labor insurance, and the opportunity to bring their families into the country).

Though it’s one of the world’s richest countries, and one that was founded by a devastating war that sparked its own refugee crisis, many Koreans still aren’t ready to open their country’s door to others.

          They Called Her “the Che Guevara of Abortion Reformers”      Cache   Translate Page      

There was nothing remarkable about the small woman carrying a box of leaflets—certainly nothing to justify the clutch of reporters waiting for her across from San Francisco’s Federal Building on a July morning in 1966. Still, there they were. She arrived at exactly 9 a.m., greeted them, and began distributing fliers to anyone who passed. There were two of them: One was a yellow slip of paper titled “Classes in Abortion,” listing topics like female anatomy, foreign abortion specialists, and police questioning. The other—which she gave only to the assembled journalists and the five women who signed up for her class that Wednesday evening—described two techniques for DIY abortions. “I am attempting to show women an alternative to knitting needles, coat hangers, and household cleaning agents,” she told the reporters, adding that she had notified San Francisco police of her whereabouts and plans.

The woman was Patricia Maginnis, a laboratory technician and founder of the Society for Humane Abortion, an organization that she ran out of the front room of her small apartment in San Francisco. She’d started the SHA in 1962 (back then, it was called the Citizens Committee for Humane Abortion Laws). Arguably the first organization of its kind in America, its mandate was radical: The SHA sought to repeal abortion laws, endorse elective abortions, and offer women any resources it could in the meantime. These resources would come to include “the List,” an up-to-date directory of safe abortion specialists outside the country, classes on DIY abortions, and symposia where sympathetic doctors could confer with each other about the safest and best abortion techniques. SHA would eventually formalize its legal strategy with a branch called the Association to Repeal Abortion Laws (ARAL, which would form the basis for NARAL), specifically devoted to challenging legislation.

But on this particular day, and on this particular mission, Maginnis claimed she was acting alone, outside of her organization. The leaflets were her way of knowingly violating both a city ordinance and Section 601 of the California Business and Professions Code, which declared it unlawful to distribute information about abortion. She was also flouting Penal Code 276, which made it a crime to “solicit[] any woman to submit to any operation, or to the use of any means whatever, to procure a miscarriage.” The violation was the point: Maginnis had politely informed the police of her every move in advance. The aim was to goad the legal apparatus into an ugly confrontation that it preferred to keep as merely a threat; she wanted to make the system own the consequences of its laws. “I could get arrested for soliciting women to undergo a felony,” Maginnis told the alt-weekly Berkeley Barb, “but I feel it is necessary at this point to have a test case.” To get a law thrown out, you first need to go to court. And to get to court, you must be arrested.

She’d launched her leaflet campaign about six weeks earlier, and the police had so far refused to respond to her provocation (some cops would later tell Maginnis that they knew she wanted to be arrested—implying this was why they’d refrained). Still, things were going smoothly enough this morning; a man named Steve Hooper, writing for the Barb, described the women to whom Maginnis gave leaflets as ranging from neutral to receptive. Some wished her luck. (As for the men, they “seemed indifferent except for one old suit who said he wanted a leaflet for his secretary,” Hooper wrote.)

Then it happened. While the reporters watched, a documentarian named Gary Bentley interviewed Maginnis for 10 minutes with a camera crew. Content with his footage, he asked his cameraman to film as he walked up to Maginnis. Here’s Hooper describing what happened next:

With microphone in hand and cameraman turned on, he said, “I’m placing you under citizen’s arrest for violating Section 188 of the Municipal Police Code. What do you think of that?”

“Excuse me, please,” Pat Maginnis said, and she hurried after one more woman to give her a leaflet.

When the police arrived in response to Bentley’s citizen’s arrest, they did so unwillingly. They tried to argue that they weren’t the ones arresting her even as they helped Maginnis into a cop car. It didn’t matter. Maginnis’ “test case” paid off. San Francisco’s Section 188 would be declared unconstitutional, and the case against her would be thrown out in court. It was the first of her many legal victories.

A social history of American abortion shows two things: 1) that it’s always been around, and 2) that anti-choice efforts tend to intensify in response to women’s perceived “liberation.” This was certainly true when Pat Maginnis came of age. Women had joined the workforce in unprecedented numbers during World War II, and the 1950s were engaged in the genie-rebottling project of fetishizing traditional gender roles. One result, as Leslie Reagan points out in When Abortion Was a Crime, was a sharp increase in the (medicalized) oversight of women’s choices. A system in which abortions were decided between the patient and her doctor or midwife would eventually give way to hospital committees, which debated on a case-by-case basis whether women deserved “therapeutic” abortions. The discussions were humiliating and sometimes even coercive, particularly when they concerned lower-income women and women of color: It wasn’t uncommon for committees to approve the requested abortion if the woman agreed to be sterilized. As medical bureaucracies solidified, hospitals started reporting abortions (and attempted abortions) to police.

That this compromised women’s privacy and subjected their health care to literal policing barely registered in these discussions, which tended overwhelmingly to prioritize the physicians’ perspective rather than women’s needs. Doctors worried about the semilegal status of “therapeutic” abortions, but they also didn’t like committees telling them what to do with their patients. In either case, the debate revolved around doctors’ preferences and anxieties. There were plenty of organizations trying to reform abortion laws, ranging from Planned Parenthood—which in 1955 held an “abortion conference” to address possible reform efforts—to the California Committee to Legalize Abortion. Some abortion activists also chose to work within the existing framework: steering patients toward favorable hospital committees or training women on what to say to get “therapeutic” abortions, whether by emphasizing excessive vomiting or offering up stories that would earn them permission on psychiatric grounds.

Maginnis aimed for more than reform. She wanted a total system overhaul. As a figure in feminist history, Maginnis, now 90 years old, may not loom as large as a Margaret Sanger or a Betty Friedan. But while she’s finally getting some belated recognition, she was never particularly interested in taking credit for her work. Nor was she much invested in making herself or her positions respectable or palatable to mainstream culture. This may have made her an awkward figure for a movement that was then treading delicate territory. And yet, a decade before Roe, with her ungainly activism, her proclivity for wearing clothes she’d found on the street, and her righteous, unquenchable rage, Maginnis helped to fundamentally reshape the abortion debate into the terms we’re still using today. She was the first to take a passionate, public stance arguing that the medical stranglehold over women’s reproductive lives was corrosive. And the Society for Humane Abortion was arguably the very first American organization to advocate a pro-choice position that centered the woman, instead of the legal dilemmas of the physician—specifically, her right to privacy and choice. Rejecting the finicky gatekeeping protocols, the committees and evaluations and red tape, Maginnis proposed that the only question anyone should ask prior to approving an abortion was a simple one: whether the woman wanted it.

* * *

Pat Maginnis grew up with six siblings in Okarche, Oklahoma, during the Great Depression. Her father, a veterinarian, barely scraped by. Her family’s troubles were compounded by Catholic strictures: Her mother had converted in order to marry her father and—because birth control was not an option—consequently continued having children long after the doctors advised against it. “She had constant ‘female trouble,’ ” Maginnis says, recalling her mother’s unhappiness and pain. “I don’t know what that meant, but she had constant problems.” Her father, the illegitimate son of an opera singer, was differently scarred by the vagaries of unplanned pregnancy. “My grandma was on her way to be a star,” Maginnis says, “but she got pregnant. And apparently pregnancy was just a killer of dreams.” Her father never got over the humiliating circumstances of his birth. “He was a good soul, but forever tortured because he had been conceived out of wedlock.”

It’s hard to separate Maginnis’ refusal to become a parent herself from the misery that this litany of reproductive events inflicted on her family. Maginnis says that her father was so abusive that her older brother confessed to her that growing up he’d feared for his life more than once. Her family was not, in consequence (and despite its size and religious piety), particularly close. Some years after she started the SHA, her mother sent her a letter: “Dear Patricia,” Maginnis reads now, affecting a formal, slightly prissy voice, “I was thinking you must be about 40 years old. I do think you could do something besides teaching these girls to commit murder. P.S. If you come this way, do look us up. Love, Mother.”

It was a sufficiently chilly relationship—and Maginnis was so eager to get away—that she describes her banishment to a boarding school as a relief and remembers her mother’s trip to visit her in California with some acidity. “I never talked to her about my sex life,” Maginnis says. I’d asked whether she ever discussed abortion with her mother; that her answer took this form surprised me slightly. I wouldn’t necessarily have used the phrase “sex life” (which, to me, connotes pleasure) to include abortions. But Maginnis would; in fact, that was sort of her point. Any campaign for elective abortion is, of course, at least in part aimed at granting that women, too, might find joy and delight in sex (rather than just pain, danger, and obligation). As a guilt-ridden ex-Catholic myself, I was both baffled and impressed by Maginnis’ immunity to the shame that ailed her family: How does a soft-spoken, scrupulously polite Oklahoma girl who attended Catholic schools with strict Catholic parents shed her sexual guilt to become not just sexually adventurous, but a pioneer in activist lawbreaking?

When Maginnis was growing up, the family’s house looked out on a highway where convoys of young soldiers would pass during World War II. The Maginnis girls didn’t date, but, Pat says, “I was bursting with hormones.” She gasps at the memory of a convoy of young men passing her house: “Oh, I was just—I ran in the house, and I grabbed a pink satin bedspread. … In about five minutes, I made a halter.” Her parents came home to find their 14-year-old busily waving at trucks filled with men in her pink halter. When she saw her parents, she ran back inside and changed back into her gray togs, but it was no good: She was sent to a convent school. “I was naughty,” she says. But as with all these sorts of stories, the prudery only half-strangled her desire.

Instead of going straight to college like her sisters, she went to work in a lab at the Bureau of Mines in Bartlesville, Oklahoma, and funded her own sea voyage to the Netherlands to meet a longtime pen pal and notional fiancé. They did not marry in the end. (“I knew that the intimacy required and the responsibilities and the thought of children I couldn’t face,” she says. “I decided that marriage was not for me.”) Then, partly because a friend told her the uniforms were cute, she joined the Women’s Army Corps. She was stationed at Fort Bragg in North Carolina until she was spotted walking with a black soldier: “The captain called me in and scolded me. She said, ‘You’re setting a bad example for young white women who might join the military.’ ” She was shipped off to Panama as punishment.

During those two years in Central America, she experienced a different kind of discrimination. She’d trained as a surgical technician, but instead of being allowed to work in surgery as she’d hoped, she was assigned to the pediatrics and obstetrics wards—the realm of women. There, she was exposed to women suffering from botched abortions, women being forced to give birth, infants with terrible abnormalities. What she didn’t get in surgical experience, she got in perspective. “A general overview of the status of women,” as she puts it to me. “And I wasn’t at all happy with it.” Then she went to college at San Jose State—and got pregnant. She’d been fitted for a diaphragm. Used foam. None of it worked.

Maginnis is amiable and funny. She has a gift for impressions and chuckles ruefully at things I find sad or hard to hear. But when I ask her about her decision to terminate, she speaks with real anger—present-tense anger she still feels, decades later. “I was not in the family-ing business, and a child coming from me was not going to happen,” she tells me. “I simply thought my parents were ruthlessly forced into parenthood, and they … took it. They accepted it,” she says. “My mother would tell you she enjoyed having children. I didn’t go through childhood with that impression.”

She got her first abortion in Mexico and swore to herself that she would never again leave her own country to get medical care. She spent the next decade producing a list of legitimate abortion providers outside the country while also working quietly with those within it. Despite her best efforts, she would get pregnant twice more. But she would continue to have a sex life. And the horror of having to wrestle down her own fertility forged her into the formidable antagonist to the law that she became.

* * *

It helped, perhaps, that Maginnis was no longer young by the mid-1960s. She came of age long before the sexual revolution, which meant she had a particular experience of—and a particular fury about—what women had been routinely expected to tolerate. It’s hard for statistics to express just how urgent the abortion conversation was in the 1960s, or how difficult it was to even have the conversation, given the laws. In 1961, Los Angeles County Hospital admitted over 3,500 patients treated for illegal abortions. As of 1967, almost 80 percent of the women who died as a consequence of botched abortions were nonwhite.

From Dorothy Fadiman’s documentary “Motherhood by Choice, Not Chance”

Maginnis can’t pinpoint a single moment that turned her into an activist. She admits to once feeling great sympathy for a celebrity who was pilloried for needing an abortion, but it’s clear that there was no single precipitating incident. Her work, rather, was inspired by a slow and building rage. “What I saw was law, medicine, and religion were largely at fault for our problems,” she says.

When Maginnis launched her leaflet campaign, she chose a location that would maximize her ability to confront a medical community she saw as at best patronizing to women and at worst exploitative and controlling. The state Board of Medical Examiners had gathered at the University of San Francisco to discuss the implementation of hospital committees that would determine whether women could receive abortions. As the mostly male board debated the circumstances under which women could be forced to give birth, Maginnis was outside handing out information on how to abort without the help of the doctors within. She was shocked at how unseriously the board took their mandate. She told the Berkeley Barb that when she’d handed some board members a leaflet titled “Are you Pregnant?” with abortion information on it, they “twittered like a bunch of schoolgirls.”

This, she felt, was the collective effect of the laws and ordinances that made even talking about abortion illegal: The entire concept had become untouchable, a boogeyman. “The word abortion was taboo,” she says. “And I thought: That’s crazy. People won’t talk about abortion! They’re afraid to. I’m going to talk about abortion! ABORTION!” she yelled. “Women weren’t talking about it. They were afraid to talk about it.”

Maginnis wasn’t. She relied on logistical help from two women, Lana Phelan and Rowena Gurner, who joined her to form the Society for Humane Abortion’s central trio, which came to be known as the “Army of Three.” Maginnis was the fire, Gurner the strategist and organizational genius, and Phelan the organization’s eloquent mouthpiece. Gurner, like Maginnis, also worked full time, professionalizing the organization in her spare hours. She spent many nights sleeping on SHA’s floor. Gurner “had polish,” Maginnis tells me, her eyes lighting up. “She gave me $20 once. Now, Patricia!” she says, mimicking her. “You go buy a new dress for this occasion, and don’t bring something that you found on the street or in the thrift store!

Gurner’s gift for strategy and Maginnis’ grit turned the leafleting plan into an all-out, accelerating assault on laws they saw as punitive or unjust—using themselves as bait. “I plan to leaflet for abortion until they get sick of me and arrest me or repeal the law,” Maginnis had announced to the Berkeley Barb when she launched her campaign on June 16, 1966. Her initial plan had been to distribute a thousand leaflets. A week later, when she hadn’t been arrested, she escalated. “My minimum goal is to distribute 50,000 leaflets by July 25, telling women where they can get abortions,” she announced through the press. When she finally was arrested (in late July, thanks to that “citizen’s arrest” by Gary Bentley), she caused the city ordinance under which she was arrested to be ruled unconstitutional. She had no intention of stopping there. “I was arrested under a local ordinance,” she told the Barb in 1966. “Now it’s the state laws that need changing.”

When the San Mateo County district attorney announced that if Maginnis and Gurner showed up, he intended to enforce California’s state law forbidding the dissemination of written matter on abortions, the pair immediately arranged a class in San Mateo that covered abortion laws and DIY abortions. As Gurner put it to the Barb: “We just want to get this law on trial. … We obviously and willingly broke the law. And we did it so that no DA could weasel out because of ‘insufficient evidence.’ ” It worked. They were arrested on Feb. 20, 1967, and faced (according to the Barb) a sentence of five to seven years in state prison if found guilty. While their hearing was in progress—in a courthouse in Redwood City—an unrepentant Gurner and Maginnis advertised that they were still looking for a place in Berkeley they could rent on Thursday nights to hold more abortion classes. (The room needed to hold 50 people, and they were willing to pay $10 a night.)

It took six years from their 1967 arrests for Maginnis and Gurner’s efforts to pay off. Initially, both women were convicted of violating Section 601 of the California Business and Professions Code—the state statute that made it unlawful to advertise abortion. But in 1973, the state Court of Appeals overturned their convictions, ruling that Section 601 was overly broad—for one thing, it “does not distinguish between abortions which are permitted and those which are not”—and thus unconstitutional.

The Army of Three hadn’t been trying to get arrested merely as a matter of strategy: They had real information to distribute, information that was hardest to obtain for women who weren’t rich. Maginnis was incensed by a medical consensus that effectively discriminated against the poor. “The medical profession’s committee idea of legalized abortion is very discriminatory,” she told the Barb. “It will help those with lots of money or contacts, not the majority of women.” Lower-income women suffered—like the third member of the Army of Three, Phelan, who struggled to collect the $50 she needed for an illegal abortion. Women in search of abortions were also easy to exploit. According to Maginnis, some parties whose phone numbers and addresses were being circulated (or sold) as abortion providers weren’t actually doctors. This discovery, and the accompanying stories of botched abortions and sexually exploitative abortionists, spurred her to create “the List.” Essentially a Yelp for abortion seekers, the List offered a continuously updated and reliable list of qualified abortion providers in Japan, Sweden, and Mexico. The Jane Collective in Chicago would follow suit a few years later, performing the abortions themselves.

By 1969, the Society for Humane Abortion claimed to have sent 12,000 women out of the country to get abortions from reliable, trustworthy providers. To give you a sense of just how necessary the List was, here’s an excerpt from one List user’s earlier attempt to obtain an abortion domestically (as printed in a set of letters to ARAL published by the Los Angeles Free Press): “I was two weeks along then and he made me wait until I was 3 months along. Then he said it was too late to get any help from anyone but he would do it if I would sleep with him!” The classes SHA organized instructed women on every aspect of an abortion: how to schedule one, how to prepare, what to expect, how it was done, how to respond to police interrogations if you had to be hospitalized, and how—if you couldn’t travel—to perform your own.

The classes sometimes included DIY abortion kits with items like gauze, a thermometer, cotton, and a syringe. Maginnis was by all accounts a vivid teacher. Newspapers reported that she lectured using an IUD for a pointer and that she “graphically illustrated the dangers of unsanitary abortion by holding up anal bacteria cultures and infected blood samples.” The class taught women female anatomy. It instructed them on how to calculate how many weeks pregnant they were. It instructed them on exactly how to call for an appointment (the woman, not the man, should place the call).

These classes were understood by many to be essential but legally risky. When the Los Angeles Free Press took the bold step of republishing the entire class’s contents across several pages of an October 1967 issue, the layout was anxiously peppered with editor’s notes and legal disclaimers like: “The Free Press can not and does not advise women who are not legally entitled to an abortion to follow the advice of Pat Maginnis.”

The Society for Humane Abortion didn’t interact much with the feminist movement or Planned Parenthood directly, at least at first. “It was too touchy,” Maginnis says. In the SHA’s early days, Planned Parenthood was more invested in advocating for contraception than abortion. Margaret Sanger’s theory was that abortion would become unnecessary if women had sufficient access to contraception. Maginnis disagreed. “Margaret Sanger, bless her,” she says. “We can’t thank her enough for Planned Parenthood, but it isn’t enough.” Under Maginnis’ leadership, the SHA spoke out—and in certain regards, provoked change—in ways Planned Parenthood wouldn’t. “We used to say we made Planned Parenthood respectable,” Maginnis laughs.

Her admiration of Sanger, though, is genuine. “Sanger took rotten eggs and tomatoes and rotten fruit thrown at her when she went out, and I don’t think people know that today,” she says. She understood that an organization with Planned Parenthood’s institutional heft needed to keep some distance from the SHA; Maginnis’ strategy of flagrantly flouting the law had made her something of a too-hot-to-handle legend.

When the Therapeutic Abortion Act was signed into law by California Gov. Ronald Reagan in 1967, the Army of Three planned a program of civil disobedience. The act, an unhappy compromise between groups whose politics hadn’t yet coalesced into well-defined positions like “pro-choice” and “pro-life,” ostensibly aimed to make legal abortion more widely available. (National Review called the signing of this bill Reagan’s “darkest hour.”) Abortion at the time was only legal to save the life of the mother; the act made “therapeutic” abortion legal in cases that would “gravely impair” women’s mental as well as physical health. But it also added a draconian 20-week limitation and required that any medical committee discussion of a prospective abortion for reasons of rape or incest include the relevant district attorney. Functionally, as even some attorneys at the time argued, it meant that wealthy women (who dealt with private hospitals) would have access to abortions, whereas women in public hospitals would be bound by a more conservative take on the law: They would need to show sufficiently “severe” mental distress—like psychosis—to obtain a legal abortion. (“How much for a psychosis?” reads a political cartoon Maginnis once drew, depicting a patient asking a psychiatrist for a diagnosis that would legitimize a therapeutic abortion.)

“We’re going to instruct women in the arts of phony psychosis and false hemorrhage,” Pat Maginnis told reporters. “This unbelievable piece of legislative slop must be violated to the point that the medical profession and legislature is pressured into accepting more modern abortion techniques.” ARAL issued a leaflet asking members of Congress whether they would request permission to get a vasectomy or treatment for venereal disease from a panel of female doctors.

It was a combative stance—and a sign of SHA’s uncompromising position on the right to choose—for a bill that Planned Parenthood, among others, now credits with being among the first to functionally legalize abortion.

* * *

The “Che Guevara of abortion reformers,” as alt-weeklies called her at the time, now seems like an unlikely avatar of female rage. When I visited her at her home this summer, I found a 90-year-old woman who laughs a lot and peppers her speech with gentle exclamations. “Oh, my goodness,” she chuckles, remembering the time she invited police to attend a class she was teaching on DIY abortions—and they asked her to pay $3 an hour for a female officer’s time. “I think a policewoman did show up, but more out of personal interest,” Maginnis says wryly. She conveys a bemused mildness I found hard to reconcile with the working-class firebrand I’d expected.

But there’s no real contradiction here: The woman who said “excuse me” to the man detaining her in 1966 is also the woman who faced down the San Francisco homicide squad in 1959 in the hospital while recovering from a self-induced abortion. Had she given herself an abortion? the police asked. “Sure I did,” she replied. “Want me to demonstrate how in court?”

In her 10th decade, Maginnis remains equal parts polite and independent. She lives alone in a house in the San Antonio neighborhood of East Oakland that she bought back in 1979 for a song (the owner had tried to burn it down for the insurance money). Until just a few years ago, when she gave her archives to a library, her house was filled with several decades’ worth of handwritten letters from women telling her about their abortions or asking for help.

In the ’60s, especially given the respectable caution that characterized organizations like Planned Parenthood, there was a radical politics to the matter-of-factness with which the Army of Three openly talked about their own abortions. And that matter-of-factness still feels radical today. The second time she got pregnant, Maginnis recalls, she was deeply frustrated at the prospect of being forced to leave the country again for an abortion. But by then, she says, “I had figured out, if I start just giving my uterus no rest, that fetus is going to fall out.”

Startled, I ask Maginnis to explain. She elaborates that her plan was to “squat down and take my clean, scrubbed fingers and manipulate until I could get it to rebel and kick the fetus out.”

“So you could reach your cervix?” I ask.

“Oh yeah, very easily. You probably could too.”

“Does that work?”

“I manipulated, I worked on it, and finally, at five months, the fetus went into—I went into labor. It took a long time and a lot of work.”

Five months of daily effort to induce an abortion, followed by labor and police questioning—all instead of a simple, fast, safe procedure. In telling me this story, she betrays none of the story’s weight; rather, there is a relationship between her tight understatement and her rage.

In interviews, Phelan was less circumspect and much more graphic about the horrors she endured because safe abortions weren’t easily available. After she had one child, her doctor told her another pregnancy would kill her but didn’t tell her how to avoid getting pregnant. When she did—as a woman, she once said, “you don’t know how to say no to your husband. That silly Bible says you can’t say no!”—it took her so long to gather the $50 she needed for an illegal abortion that by the time she’d saved it, she was four months pregnant. The abortionist—a woman on the outskirts of Tampa, Florida—stuffed her uterus with slippery elm bark and told her not to come back. She was at her sister-in-law’s house when she started to feel extremely ill. She’d told no one, not even her husband. As she recalled in 2004:

This is a thing you do yourself. And if you die and go to hell, it’s you that goes, not anybody else. So I excused myself to go to the bathroom because it was hurting so. When I sat down on the john and looked down, there was a little tiny hand protruding from my vagina and the blood was just flying, and I thought, “Oh my God, what do I do now?”

I didn’t take as long to think about it as Bush did the war … [laughs] I gathered up all the toilet tissue I could get in my hand and stuffed it back inside of me, pushed everything back up inside my vagina and just packed it. And got all the blood off I could and cleaned everything up. And then I went out back inside and said I had to go home because I was so sick, and that was not a lie.

She was 16. First came fear. The anger would follow. This seems to be a pattern: Restrict women’s rights, force them to suffer needlessly, blame them when they fail impossible tests, and you will eventually create unsuspected forces for change. “It seemed to me when I got involved wasn’t really when I got involved [in the abortion rights movement],” Maginnis says. “I’d been involved for years before, just not driven to do anything except be angry. In a constant rage over it. And wondering why women, in addition to myself, were in a constant upheaval.”

Was Roe v. Wade a relief when it was passed? I ask her. “For me it wasn’t a big relief,” she says. It had felt more like the expected course of events—reality inching closer to how things should be. But then she continues: “I thought, yeah, that is a good thing. Now, let’s hope we can at least maintain the healthy ideas of it being available. We don’t have to sneak, we don’t have to beg.”

If the Federalist Society—which supplied the list of judges from which Donald Trump chose Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court—has its way, we’re in danger of returning to the times when women had to sneak and beg. Trump pledged during his campaign that Roe would be overturned “automatically” through the pro-life judges he would nominate. It probably won’t be so straightforward: The route the GOP is taking to greatly restrict women’s access to abortion has been circuitous, with progress marked by legal restrictions, by expanding definitions of fetal personhood, by permitting women to be lied to in the service of a single end goal. As my colleague Dahlia Lithwick has written, “women’s experiences, memories, and suffering don’t matter; their control over the truth of what they themselves have lived through is determined by those who win.”

Faced with a similar orthodoxy half a century ago, Maginnis and her cohort refused to let it stand.

The classes a modern-day SHA might teach would likely be different. There’s the internet, for one. The first time we met, I asked Maginnis what she thought women should be doing now, as the country seems poised once again to try to control our bodies. “I’ve thought about that,” she said then. “If I was going to reinvolve myself at this point, what would be the entry point? Kind of like setting out a map, looking for an entry.” She doesn’t quite have an answer. Yet.

It’s late afternoon on my final visit with Maginnis, and the warmth and long conversation have made the upstairs room where we sit feel especially lived-in. Her compatriots Gurner and Phelan died years ago. It’s not lost on me that I’m talking to someone who fought for reproductive freedom pre-Roe, at a moment when a Supreme Court justice has just been hand-picked to take it away again. In recent months, rage has been much on my mind. If over half of Americans stand to have a committee of men overrule their right to bodily autonomy after a mere 45 years, we can learn a lot from Pat Maginnis—about how women survived, and how they died, and how they fought. So what should we do now? I ask her again, as she raises the blinds to open the window overlooking the street below. “Keep talking about the issue,” she says. “Sure, not everyone is a brilliant speaker, but I think people have to keep talking about it.” She looks at me, her eyes bright. “Don’t you?”

          Time Is on Our Side      Cache   Translate Page      

Casinos have been on my mind a lot lately, although I’m not a gambler. What I keep thinking about is the way that they’re designed to make patrons lose track of time. The absence of clocks and windows is purposeful. If all is going well—at least from the house’s point of view—guests can place bets from 4:00 in the afternoon until 4:00 in the morning and hardly notice the hours pass. The goal, of course, is to maximize profits. The longer you’re in there, the more chances they have to take your money.

More and more, I wonder if we’re all starting to exist in a version of casino-time, where one hour bleeds into the next with little discernible difference. Light pollution is growing in both scale and brightness every year, giving the nighttime an artificial glow. Inside our houses, we bask in a different kind of artificial light, with smartphones and tablets constantly by our sides. Backlit screens, a twenty-four-hour news cycle, and features like AutoPlay and infinite scrolling make it easy to lose sense of time. In fact, technology and social media companies deliberately employ casino-like tactics in order to make websites and applications as addictive as possible. It’s not an accident that you can intend to look up one headline, or one video on YouTube, and before you know it, discover that you’ve consumed a dozen more. Meanwhile, the payoff of what we encounter online—whether it’s the dopamine hit of a well received Instagram post, or horror at the latest bad news—tends to be fleeting. So we keep scrolling down, or hitting refresh, like someone sitting glassy-eyed before a slot machine.

The net effect of such trends can be to trap us in a kind of endless, lonely, and anxious present. And a diminished sense of time, I worry, could lead to a diminished sense of hope. The two things—time and hope—are intimately connected in Julie Otsuka’s novel When the Emperor Was Divine, about a Japanese-American family taken from their home in Berkeley, California, after the bombing of Pearl Harbor. The husband is sent to a federal prison, and his wife and two children to an internment camp in the Utah desert. Almost immediately upon reaching the camp, the mother—who, along with the other family members, is unnamed—begins to let go, first of time, and then of any agency or ability to conceive of a better future. She stops winding her watch and loses track of the days. Time begins to seem distorted, stretched out and blurry. “Who was winning the war? Who was losing? The mother no longer wanted to know,” Otsuka writes. “She no longer read the paper or listened to the bulletins on the radio. ‘Tell me when it’s over,’ she said.”

In all honesty, I sometimes feel the same temptation to despair, especially after reading the news for too long. It isn’t easy to exist in an endless, anxious present.


The liturgical calendar returns us to the physical world, for one thing. Pay attention to the priest’s vestments, to the colors of the decorations in church.

Thankfully, believers have a lifeline in the form of the liturgical calendar, which recently started up again on December 2. Never before had I been so thankful for the start of a new liturgical year that I found myself wanting to pregame for Advent; but from mid-November on, it was all I could do to keep from counting down the days. Advent is a season of hopeful expectation, covering the four weeks leading up to Christmas. Its name derives from the Latin words for “to come,” and what is on its way, this and every year, is Christ and the promise of salvation. Both feel sorely needed at the moment.

Advent is followed by the Christmas season, which celebrates Jesus’ birthday and God’s entrance into the world. After Christmas there’s a short break and then comes Lent, a time of fasting and penance. (A meaningful Lent, in my experience, has less to do with punishment or self-mortification than it does with readying oneself for the joy of Easter. If you think about the difference between eating a delicious meal on an empty stomach and eating it when you’re only kind of hungry, it’s a little bit like that.) The forty days of Lent lead up to the Triduum—which chronicles the passion of Christ and his descent to Hell—and then to the triumph of Easter and the glory of Jesus’ Resurrection. After fifty days of Eastertide comes Pentecost, which marks the Holy Spirit’s entrance into the world.

And then there’s another break, a much longer one, a second stretch of what is called Ordinary Time. The word “ordinary” in this context doesn’t mean boring, exactly, although it’s likely not a coincidence that Ordinary Time accounts for more than half of the liturgical year, and that at least 50 percent of our day-to-day lives, if we’re lucky, passes in a somewhat unremarkable fashion. “Ordinary” here mainly means part of a series. Each week of Ordinary Time is marked by an ordinal number: first week after Pentecost, second week after Pentecost, etc. After six months of Ordinary Time, the whole cycle starts again. Advent and Christmas return to refresh a world that has grown weary, and more than ready to hear the Good News again.

The liturgical calendar can do much to counter casino-time. It returns us to the physical world, for one thing. Pay attention to the priest’s vestments, to the colors of the decorations in church. They’ve recently shifted from the green of Ordinary Time to Advent’s violet. Depending on when you’re reading this, you might still have the chance to see rose, a color used only twice a year (including Gaudete Sunday, the third Sunday in Advent). Such details remind us that however chaotic the world can seem today, there is still order and meaning. And liturgy by its very nature—descending as it does from the Greek words for “public” and “work”—helps pull us out of loneliness and into community. There’s something wonderfully comforting about the realization that the words one says as part of a Mass or church service are always echoed by other believers around the globe.


I lived through what felt like a full year of Lent following trauma, and a year ago, Advent—with its emphasis on hope and looking forward—helped keep me sane during a time of job uncertainty.

The church calendar can lend additional richness to our lives, thanks to the way that it sacralizes all aspects of the human condition. So often today we are surrounded by narratives of endless growth and ceaseless triumph. The way we talk about shareholder profits, university endowments, average SAT scores, and the desired life expectancies of Silicon Valley CEOs suggests that what goes up should really keep going up, indefinitely. If it doesn’t, something must be wrong. Meanwhile, advertisements and social media can make it seem like everyone else is living a perfect life, effortlessly. The upshot of these narratives is that many people lack a way to talk about—and thus to conceptualize, since it’s hard to think straight without words—human weakness, defeat, or death without framing them as pathological.

The liturgical calendar, by contrast, acknowledges that life can’t all be hallelujahs here below. It carves out space for mourning as well as rejoicing, for fasts as well as feasts. It reminds us of Solomon’s words in the Book of Ecclesiastes, “To every thing there is a season.” In doing so, the church calendar provides a model to strengthen us and dignify our experiences in times of both joy and sorrow. When I was recovering from the effects of trauma, I took a lot of solace in comparing my sorrows to the solemnity of Lent and the grief of the Triduum. It meant that I wasn’t alone, and I wasn’t in uncharted territory. I was on a path that many others, including God in human form, had walked before me. It also meant that suffering and death—for some periods in our lives can feel like a kind of death—is never the end of the story, because Christ conquered death on Easter morning. If you walk away from the slot machine, and out into the dawning light, you can be reminded of this truth every day.

The varied nature of the liturgical calendar means that we will inevitably feel the significance of particular seasons more acutely in some years than in others. I lived through what felt like a full year of Lent following trauma, and a year ago, Advent—with its emphasis on hope and looking forward—helped keep me sane during a time of job uncertainty. If your personal circumstances align with the church calendar in a given year, that is one kind of blessing. If they don’t—so that a cheerful season helps lift your spirits or a penitential season tempers them—then that is another kind of blessing. Either way, the rhythm of the church year can carry us along from one season to the next in our lives, and help us find the melody again when we’ve gotten lost in the noise.

Its cyclical nature, too, is a comfort. Not only This too shall pass, but also This too will come again. For anyone who feels mired in the quicksand of the virtual now, the chance to use the liturgical calendar as a lifeline is now within reach.

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

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

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

USD/JPY has been quite impressive amid the impulsive bearish pressure today which pushed the price below 113.00 area. Despite mixed economic reports from Japan, JPY managed to gain momentum over USD ahead of high impact events like NFP and Rate Hike in the coming days.

USD started the week with severe weakness against JPY. Thus, USD could lose more strength. FED members recently stated that they would not react to every rise and fall which confused the market sentiment ahead of a rate hike this month which dealt a blow to the US currency. 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%. Moreover, FOMC member Williams is due to speak about the upcoming interest rate and monetary policy decisions. Ahead of NFP this week which is expected to have mixed readings, USD is going to trade with an indecisive dynamic ahead of the policy meeting of the FOMC this month.

On the JPY side, recently Capital Spending report was published with a decrease to 4.5% from the previous value of 12.8% which was expected to be at 8.6% and Final Manufacturing PMI slightly increased to 52.2 which was expected to be unchanged at 51.8. Today Japan's Monetary Base report was published with an increase to 6.1% from the previous value of 5.9% which was expected to decrease to 5.7%.

Japan will post an Average Cash Earnings report Friday which is expected to increase to 1.0% from the previous value of 0.8%. Thus, JPY is expected to gain further in the process. On the other hand, NFP reports are expected to reveal mixed data. Until USD comes up with solid economic reports or events in the coming days, JPY is expected to sustain its momentum.

Now let us look at the technical view. The price is currently residing below 113.00 area and dynamic level of 20 EMA which if have a daily close today, further bearish pressure leading the price towards 112.00 area is expected. The market is still quite volatile, and no definite trend pressure can be recognized currently. As the price remains below 114.50 area, the bearish bias is expected to continue.

SUPPORT: 110.50, 112.00

Smith's Reef Turks and Caicos

Each month the Sands on Grace Bay resort presents hot topics and news about the Turks and Caicos. This month: where can you spend the day on the beach with a Potcake puppy?

Where is the Greatest Beach on Earth (According to the Experts)?

Grace Bay Beach in the Turks and Caicos Islands, as anyone who has ever been to Providenciales will tell you. To make it official, Grace Bay Beach was recently named the best in the world in a poll of 632 travel journalists and other experts questioned by the Canadian website FlightNetwork.

This comes after the Turks and Caicos beach was voted best beach in world by TripAdvisor reviewers.


Where Can You Visit Beach Filled With Puppies?

A hint: it's right here on Providenciales, in Turks and Caicos. Potcake Place is a sanctuary on Providenciales for Potcake dogs, a mixed breed that’s native to some Caribbean islands. The tropical rescue allows you to check out a pup and bring it with you to Grace Bay Beach for some fun in the sun.

          NASA spacecraft arrives at ancient asteroid, its 1st visitor      Cache   Translate Page      

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — After a two-year chase, a NASA spacecraft arrived Monday at the ancient asteroid Bennu, its first visitor in billions of years.

The robotic explorer Osiris-Rex pulled within 12 miles (19 kilometers) of the diamond-shaped space rock. It will get even closer in the days ahead and go into orbit around Bennu on Dec. 31. No spacecraft has ever orbited such a small cosmic body.

It is the first U.S. attempt to gather asteroid samples for return to Earth, something only Japan has accomplished so far.

Flight controllers applauded and exchanged high-fives once confirmation came through that Osiris-Rex made it to Bennu — exactly one week after NASA landed a spacecraft on Mars.

"Relieved, proud, and anxious to start exploring!" tweeted lead scientist Dante Lauretta of the University of Arizona. "To Bennu and back!"

With Bennu some 76 million miles (122 million kilometers) away, it took seven minutes for word to get from the spacecraft to flight controllers at Lockheed Martin in Littleton, Colorado. The company built the spacecraft there.

Bennu is estimated to be just over 1,600 feet (500 meters) across. Researchers will provide a more precise description at a scientific meeting next Monday in Washington.

About the size of an SUV, the spacecraft will shadow the asteroid for a year, before scooping up some gravel for return to Earth in 2023.

Scientists are eager to study material from a carbon-rich asteroid like dark Bennu, which could hold evidence dating back to the beginning of our solar system 4.5 billion years ago. As such, it's an astronomical time capsule.

A Japanese spacecraft, meanwhile, has been hanging out at another near-Earth asteroid since June, also for samples. It is Japan's second asteroid mission. This latest rock is named Ryugu and about double the size of Bennu.

Ryugu's specks should be here by December 2020, but will be far less than Osiris-Rex's promised booty.

Osiris-Rex aims to collect at least 60 grams, or 2 ounces, of dust and gravel. The spacecraft won't land, but rather use a 10-foot (3-meter) mechanical arm in 2020 to momentarily touch down and vacuum up particles. The sample container would break loose and head toward Earth in 2021.

The collection — parachuting down to Utah — would represent the biggest cosmic haul since the Apollo astronauts hand-delivered moon rocks to Earth in the late 1960s and early 1970s.

NASA has brought back comet dust and solar wind particles before, but never asteroid samples. Japan managed to return some tiny particles in 2010 from its first asteroid mission , also named Hayabusa.

Both Bennu and Ryugu are considered potentially hazardous asteroids. That means they could smack Earth years from now. At worst, Bennu would carve out a crater during a projected close call 150 years from now.

Contact with Bennu will not significantly change its orbit or make it more dangerous to us, Lauretta stressed.

Scientists contend the more they learn about asteroids, the better equipped Earth will be in heading off a truly catastrophic strike.

The $800 million Osiris-Rex mission began with a 2016 launch from Cape Canaveral, Florida. Its odometer read 1.2 billion miles (2 billion kilometers) as of Monday.

Both the spacecraft and asteroid's names come from Egyptian mythology. Osiris is the god of the afterlife, while Bennu represents the heron and creation.

Osiris-Rex is actually a NASA acronym for origins, spectral interpretation, resource identification, security-regolith explorer.

          South Korea Is Trialing Blockchain Voting — Here’s What That Means      Cache   Translate Page      
South Korea Blockchain Voting

South Korea will test out a new blockchain voting system this month, sources close to the developments have confirmed to Bitcoin Magazine. Developed by the country’s National Election Commission (NEC) and its Ministry of Science and ICT, the distributed ledger system is based on IBM’s Hyperledger Fabric and will be used to authenticate voters and save voting results in real time.

South Korean officials believe a blockchain voting system will increase both security and transparency, thereby improving people’s trust in digital voting. The NEC initially ran an online voting system dubbed “K-voting” back in 2013, but, despite 5.64 million users, trust remained low due to fraud and hacking concerns.

The system will be trialed in the private sector by Handysoft Consortium, which provides collaboration systems for smart work environments. The NEC says the trial is a pilot test designed to determine the viability of blockchain technology, wherein a small sample of users will use the pilot to answer a questionnaire.

With the pilot, the voting system will be used to gather responses from surveys issued by the Korea Internet and Security Agency — the region’s official internet content watchdog — on user experience, including satisfaction among trial participants. Their personal information is then collected from the user group administrator and uploaded directly to the blockchain system, where it is stored for the next seven days before being deleted.

The NEC says the plan is to eventually introduce the blockchain online voting system in democratic elections through a step-by-step pilot operation that will check the safety and stability of the system. The introduction of the voting platform into public official elections like National Assembly elections, local elections or presidential elections will be a policy decision made via the nation’s legislative branch.

Should legislation move forward, users will be able to cast their votes in the future using either their personal computers or mobile phones instead of in-person or by mail. Data recorded during the elections will be saved to the distributed network, so voters can see the progress of the elections as more votes are cast.

The NEC is confident the system will eliminate the possibilities of hacking and voter fraud. In addition, the organization says it will also add elements like big data, internet of things (IoT) technology and artificial intelligence (AI), granted the system proves popular enough.

South Korea is not the first nation to experiment with blockchain voting. Japan’s city of Tsukuba became the first area to experiment with the technology for voting purposes back in September of 2018. Voters’ identities were verified utilizing the Japanese equivalent of social security cards. From there, accounts were created for citizens wishing to vote on what the Japan Times called “social contribution projects.”

Unfortunately, the system was not without its problems. Many voters reported forgetting their login passwords and being unable to cast their votes within the appropriate timeframes. Furthermore, there was little clarity offered once a vote was cast on whether it had been counted.

West Virginia also experimented with blockchain voting during the 2018 midterm elections. Designed by mobile voting platform Voatz, the system was designed for American troops serving overseas who wished to cast their votes in the November federal elections. Voatz used facial-recognition software to match voters’ faces to their government-issued ID cards. From there, troop members could ultimately cast their ballots, which were then anonymized and recorded via the blockchain.

           Comment on The end of the PFI by Tom       Cache   Translate Page      
Ikonoclast's view on MMT is the most balance view I've seen on the internet so far. Indeed MMT gives a false impression on layman and public readers about suggesting "free lunches", but that is mostly because they often denounce irresponsible fiscal contraction that is driven by political ideology instead of economic analysis (e.g. the peripheral EU countries). In most cases, the MMT economists aren't wrong to suggest that public debt are generally not an issue. This is well supported by historic data such as UK and US post WWII where nominal debt increases but public debt as a percentage of GDP decreases due to high growth in GDP. In terms of current data MMT also do not cringe at trying to explain Japan compared to orthodox (especially monetarist) economists.

          "Kinder and gentler than whom?"      Cache   Translate Page      
George H.W. Bush died, which is the one act a Republican performs that the media approves of. He was the last president from the Greatest Generation. In World War II he was a navy pilot. He narrowly escaped being captured by the cannibalistic Japanese. He paddled a raft for four hours until being rescued. As president, he wanted a kinder and gentler America. It is said that Nancy Reagan turned to Ronald and said, "Kinder and gentler than whom?" Reagan brought back the economy from Jimmy Carter's absolute disaster. Was Bush implying that Reagan was not kind or gentle? What is not kind about freeing millions of people in eastern Europe from Soviet Communism? What is not kind about getting our economy going again, freeing us from the long Jimmy Carter lines at the gas stations?

George W. did the same thing when he started talking about "Compassionate Conservatism," implying that regular conservatism is not compassionate.

          Photokina 2019 Cancelled – Starting Annually in May 2020      Cache   Translate Page      

The next Photokina trade show in May 2019 just got cancelled. The new annual cycle of Photokina will start in May 2020. The decision was mainly based on giving the exhibitors more time to better prepare for the next trade show.

Since the beginning of its history in 1950, Photokina has always been a biennial trade show. We at cinema5D have been present at the last few Photokina shows to bring you, our readers, the most informative product news and interviews, of course always in relation to budget filmmaking, or “budget cinematography”, with tools that cross the blurring lines between photo and video. (In case you missed it, here’s a link to our entire extensive coverage of this year’s event.).
From next year, however, the promoters decided to switch to an annual cycle, and we were quite surprised to hear that the next Photokina was supposed to take place in May 2019 already. It would have been quite a steep change to only leave 8 months between two trade shows instead of 24 months. It turns out many exhibitors thought the same – some major big camera manufacturers had already decided to skip 2019’s Photokina altogether.
Photokina 2019 2020
Yesterday, an official press release was published on the Photokina website, announcing that the next Photokina trade show will take place in Cologne only in May 2020. The decision to start a new annual cycle in May 2019 was reversed and the show will be relaunched one year later.
The exact reason to postpone the next Photokina, quoted from the press release:
The decision to postpone the start of the announced annual cycle by one year is intended to give all participants the opportunity to further develop the new concept for photokina and to tap into new target groups among exhibitors and visitors in order to heighten the status of the trade fair as a global platform for the photography and imaging industry.
It is unlikely that, in May 2019 after just over seven months, we will once again be able to create the same enthusiastic atmosphere that characterised photokina 2018. This is why we have decided to start the planned annual cycle in 2020.

For Koelnmesse, promoter of Photokina, it is important to provide enough time for technology companies to bring innovative products and technologies to present during the next Photokina trade show.
In our opinion, the real reason to postpone to 2020 stems simply from the pressure that big manufacturers applied. We know of at least two large Japanese camera manufacturers that would have skipped the 1919 show altogether, and that could have been a death nail for a show which has been considered the most important photo exhibition in the world for many decades. After all, the big camera companies are the show’s biggest draw. It’s absolutely the right decision to skip 2019.
Photokina already tried to increasingly involve new exhibitors from innovative areas such as mobile, imaging analytics, digital workflow and moving images, and something they call a “stronger focus on experience for visitors” (we’re not sure how it was any different this year from last time though). The newly created Imaging Lab, in which start-ups, investors and scientists presented and discussed new imaging applications, is also part of the new concept.
I know that the importance of trade shows like Photokina is not only about the exciting announcements – there are lots of nice workshops, visitors can talk with manufacturers, try out gear, and so on. I can’t help seeing however, that when it comes to new exciting product or technology announcements, the importance of trade shows has slowly declined over the last few years. Many tech companies decided organize their own events to announce new products in order to gain more attention.
What’s your take on this – where do you see the future of such industry trade shows? And what do you think of this decision to cancel Photokina 2019? Let us know in the comments below.

          山火事で家2軒とレストランが全焼:北加パラダイス在住、避難生活を送る小島智代、成朗さん夫妻 第1話      Cache   Translate Page      
「すべてを数時間で失いました」  「アメリカに単身、スーツケースひとつから始めて30年。頑張ってレストランと家2軒、欲しい物すべてを手に入れましたがすべてを数時間で失いました―」。 カリフォルニア州北部ビュート郡の町パラダイスで11月8日に発生した山火事「キャンプ・ファイア(Camp Fire)」。25日に鎮火が発表されるまでおよそ15万3千エーカー以上を焼きつくし、これまでに85人が死亡。カリフォルニア史上もっとも多くの犠牲者を出した山火事となってしまった。このキャンプ・ファイアで被災したパラダイス在住の小島智代さん、成朗さん夫妻。現在避難生活を送る小島さんに山火事発生時や避難時の様子など話を聞いた。【吉田純子、写真=小島智代さん提供】 いつもと変わらない朝が一変 避難始められない焦りと恐怖  朝起きてコーヒーを飲みテレビのニュースを見る。その日もいつもと変わらない朝だった。しかし直後、カリフォルニア州史上最悪の山火事が小島さんに迫ろうとは、その時まだ知るよしもなかった。  パラダイスはサンフランシスコの北東180マイル(290キロメートル)に位置する人口およそ2万7千人の小さな町。自然に囲まれ、ベイエリアなどから引退後に引っ越してくる住民も多いのどかな町だ。2人はそんなパラダイスで日本食レストラン「Ikkyu Japanese Restaurant」を経営。成朗さんは仕込みのためこの日もいつも通り7時半ころ店に向かった。  成朗さんからの電話が鳴ったのはその直後だった「ちょっと何かおかしい」。自宅にいた智代さんが外を見ると、あたりはどんよりと暗く、灰が降っていた。山に住んでいるのでこれまでにも火事は多かった。「どこかでまた火事だ」。そう思っていた。  それから30分も経たないうちに事態は一変。空は真っ暗になり、燃えた灰が降り始めた。しかし警報や異常を知らせる連絡はどこからもない。「いつもの火事でまさかうちの方までは来ないだろう」。そう思ったが、視界にオレンジ色の物が見えた時、目を疑った。よく見ると庭が燃え始めているではないか。あわててホースの水で消したが、その日は極度に乾燥しており、ただ事では済まない事態が頭をよぎる。「主人に『すぐに帰ってきて』と連絡を入れました」。この時すでに「キャンプ・ファイア」は風速およそ50マイルの強風にあおられながら凄まじい勢いでパラダイスの町をのみこんでいた。  30分後、成朗さんが店から帰宅。しかし自宅前の道はすでに避難する車で混み合っていた。  パラダイスの町から住民が逃げるために残された道はスカイウエー、クラークロード、ペンツロードの3本。その3本を使い、パラダイスから車で20分ほどの場所にある隣町チコへと避難できる。  自宅から出火現場までは15マイルほどの距離。経営していたレストランよりも自宅のほうが出火現場に近かった。家の前の道ペンツロードは出火現場から続いていたため渋滞がひどく、その時すでに道に出られない状態になっていた。避難が始められない焦りと恐怖。「こんなことしてもしょうがないと思いながらも避難できるまでの間、バケツで屋根に水を掛けたりしていました」  しばらくすると、混んでいた道から車がUターンして戻ってくるではないか。前方で車にも火が延焼し始めたのだ。その時、小島さんの自宅前の住宅や近隣の住宅にも火が燃え移り始めた。  「もう、行かなきゃ!」。そう思っても道が混んでいて避難が始められない。そんな矢先、少しずつ車が空いてきた。シェリフ局職員に誘導してもらい、やっと避難を開始。2台の車に愛犬3匹を乗せ、2人は自宅を後にした。 燃え盛る炎の中逃げる 「まさかホームレスになるとは」  逃げる途中、目に飛び込んでくる情景は悲惨なものだった。道の両側は燃え、炎の中、車を走らせる。朝なのに外は真っ暗。夜の深い霧の中に迷い込んだかのようだった。前の車のライトも見えず、どこを走っているのかも分からない。とにかくゆっくり進み、どうにか近くのショッピングセンターに逃げた。「どこまで連れてこられたのかと思ったら家のそばのショッピングセンターでした。いつもなら車で2分もかからない道のりなのにとても長く感じました」  車40台〜50台がその場所で4、5時間待機していたが、遂にショッピングセンターの周りにも火が燃え移り、その場にもいられなくなった。強風と極度の乾燥のため、町はみるみる炎に覆われていった。  「ああ、もうここで終わるのかな―」。そう思った矢先、渋滞していた車がまた少しずつ進み出した。  「バン、バン」とあちこちから響く大きな爆発音。プロパンガスや車が爆発する音が耳を打つ。避難生活を送る今も誰かが車のドアを閉める音を聞くたびに、その時の恐怖が智代さんを襲う。  「結局山から降りることができたのは午後4時ごろ。最後の方だったのではないでしょうか」。早く避難できた人の中には途中で車から降ろされ、バスに乗って避難するよう指示されるもバスも先に進めなくなり、結局歩いてヒッチハイクをしながら避難した住民もいたという。  振り返ると山火事発生から怒濤のように時が流れた。愛犬3匹と洋服2、3枚をつかんで出るのが精いっぱいだった。「まさか自分の家が燃えるなんて。帰って来られると思っていたので、目につくものしか持ってこられなかった。まさか突然ホームレスになるとは思ってもみなかった―」  小島さんが所有していたレンタルハウス1軒と自宅、そしてレストランは全焼。今までアメリカ生活で築き上げてきたものを一瞬で失った。

Nov 28, 2018


Directed by Roar Uthaug in 2018 based on the 2013 video game of the same name, this American and British film depicts the adventure of Lara Croft.

Lara finds a pre-recorded video message from her father detailing his research into Himiko (卑弥呼), the mythical Queen of Yamatai (邪馬台) who was said to command the power over life and death.

She embarks on a perilous journey to her father's last-known destination---the island of Yamatai.

Although I enjoyed this action-adventure flick, the island of Yamatai is ridiculously misplaced.

Himiko (卑弥呼) is a historical figure who lived during the period (c. 170–248 CE) as a shamaness-queen of Yamataikoku (邪馬台国)---part of ancient Japan.

However, the whole story is fake fiction since her tomb has NOT been found yet.


そのビデオには 生と死を自由に操ることができる魔力を持つとされる邪馬台国の女王、卑弥呼に関する研究が記録されていた。







そうです。。。 いけませんか?



でも、この「トゥームレイダー」冒険映画はシリーズとしてたくさん作られ、人気のある映画なのですわァ。 たくさんのファンがいると聞いたことがありますわァ~。。。

          Bush Left A Troubling Legacy On Church-State Separation      Cache   Translate Page      
Bush Left A Troubling Legacy On Church-State Separation boston Tue, 12/04/2018 - 10:52
G Bush inaug

Political pundits are assessing the legacy of former President George H.W. Bush, who died on Friday. Like many people in public life, Bush had good points and bad points. But compared to the current flock of Republican leaders, it’s easy to eulogize him as a statesman and celebrate his calm demeanor and genteel manners.

I remember a somewhat different Bush – one who struggled to make peace with the Religious Right during the 1988 election and as a result, ended up moving farther to the right in pursuit of reckless policies.

Remember, Bush began his political career as a Republican moderate. As a member of the House of Representatives in the late 1960s, he was known for his interest in international population control, and he championed access to birth control. When he ran for president in 1980, Bush portrayed himself as a more moderate alternative to Ronald Reagan.

After serving as Reagan’s vice president for eight years, Bush ran for president again in 1988. He received a shock during the Iowa caucuses when he came in third behind U.S. Sen. Robert Dole (R-Kan.) and TV preacher Pat Robertson.

In the wake of the defeat, Bush, an Episcopalian, decided to move to the right and play up religion in an effort to win over skeptical far-right evangelicals. He began giving more talks about his faith and sometimes even used the phrase “born again” to describe his faith. He played up his support for school prayer and private school voucher plans. He named Dan Quayle, a U.S. senator from Indiana who was popular with the Religious Right, as his running mate.

Bush also began pushing generic forms of “God talk.” A speech he gave in Pontiac, Mich., in 1987 is typical. Bush, who had served as a fighter pilot during World War II, recalled being shot down over Japanese territory. “I know what sustained me,” he said. “It was faith, and it was family. And I believe in Jesus Christ as my personal savior.”

During the 1988 race, I contacted Bush’s campaign in an attempt to clarify where he stood on several church-state issues. I received a reply via fax: a position paper with some quotes from Bush’s speeches and writing.

The paper quoted Bush as saying, “I believe in the separation of church and state, and although government should remain neutral towards particular religions, it need not remain neutral towards traditional values that Americans support.”

The same position paper reiterated Bush’s support for tuition tax credits (a kind of voucher plan), which he insisted would “provide greater choice in education.” On creationism, Bush tried (awkwardly, in my view) to thread the needle: “I’m not a scientist, but it seems to me that the Bible has an abundance of clues and evidence to help archeologists, astronomers and other scientists in their endless quest for knowledge. I wouldn’t be a bit surprised if the Biblical account of creation and the scientific evidence of the origins of the universe will yet find common ground.”

Once in office, Bush tossed some bones to the Religious Right. He met regularly with conservative religious leaders and would occasionally talk about school prayer. He issued the usual religious proclamations. His administration tried, unsuccessfully, to allot millions for vouchers in the Education Department’s budget.

In the summer of 1992, Bush unveiled the “G.I. Bill for Children,” a $500 million outlay of taxpayer money to fund voucher schemes nationwide. At the time, Bush was struggling in the polls against Bill Clinton, and the move was seen as a sop to voters. As a political ploy, it was a serious miscalculation. After Clinton won the election in November, the voucher proposal quickly disappeared.

Bush’s biggest impact on church-state separation was through the Supreme Court. He named David Souter to the high court in 1990 to replace Justice William Brennan, but Souter turned out to be much more moderate than the Religious Right expected and was a strong supporter of church-state separation. The following year when another seat opened up after the retirement of Justice Thurgood Marshall, Bush and his advisers made sure to pick an arch-conservative. That’s how Clarence Thomas got on the court.

Thomas, now 70 years old, is the longest-serving justice among those currently on the court. His views on church-state separation are extreme, and he has insisted that since Supreme Court justices are appointed for life, he has no intention of retiring.

Thomas stands as Bush’s real legacy on church-state separation. For that reason alone, it can’t be called a good one.

UN climate summit in Poland will hear public money available is not enough to provide clean energy for those living off-grid

The world’s 1 billion people who live without electricity are not benefiting from climate change money promised by governments to help them develop.

In theory, there has never been a better time for developing countries to install renewable energy such as solar or wind to combat climate change. The UN’s Green Climate Fund (GCF), along with the World Bank and regional development banks, have all said they intend to significantly increase their green energy financing, offering developing countries cheap loans and grants. Many donor countries like Britain and Japan have also pledged to help poorer nations switch to clean energy.

          Azure DevOpsのセキュリティ設定      Cache   Translate Page      

これはAzure DevOpsアドベントカレンダー3日目の記事です。

Azure DevOpsで複雑だと言われる点の一つがセキュリティ周りの設定です。東京と大阪で来年このネタでしゃべるつもりですが、チラ見せみたいな形でご紹介します。


会社組織であればAzure DevOpsはAzure ADベースで動かしましょう。特にOffice 365を使っていればグループ管理が格段に楽です。




ユーザー追加設定です。まずはここに登録しないと始まりません。Azure ADベースで運用しているのであれば、Azure ADのグループごとに追加していったほうが楽です。数人であれば、ちまちま手作業でもいいでしょう。

会社であれば、REST APIを使って管理するのもいいと思います。


Azure DevOps のOrganization(全体の設定です。全プロジェクトに関わるので慎重にしてください。一名では何かの時に不安なので、複数登録しておくことをお勧めします。


アプリケーションからの接続方法を許可する設定です。Alternative AuthenticationはSSHやAzure AD認証がなかった頃、MSアカウントでの認証ができないような環境向けに用意されていた脆弱な方法です。現在はSSHやAzure AD認証(デバイスなど)ができるようになっているので、オフにすることを推奨します。





Gitのブランチごとにセキュリティの設定ができます。特徴的なのはbypass policies〜ですね。特定の条件に一致した場合、ポリシーをスルーできます。



Azure DevOpsではGitブランチごとにレビュワー設定、ビルドを通すという設定ができます。全部のブランチに設定すると大変なので、master, dev, releaseなどの重要なブランチにのみ設定してください。




コミット前にビルドが通るかどうかのチェックするビルド定義を指定します。Require approval from external servicesでは例えば、マージ前にセキュリティやコンプライアンスチェックを行うようなサービスを呼び出す、未解決のworkitemがあるかどうかを判定する独自サービスとの連携行います。

こういうのはAzure FunctionsやAWS Lambdaを使うといいですね。


Project Settingsのページから実施します。


プロジェクトの基本的なセキュリティ設定です。以前作られたプロジェクトではBuild Administratorに入っていないとビルド定義が作れなかった(外部サービスからも同様)のですが、最近の変更で変わりました。古いプロジェクトは明示的に変更する必要があります。

          Buyers show enthusiasm for US lamb's return to Japan      Cache   Translate Page      
The U.S. Meat Export Federation launched U.S. lamb's return to the Japanese market with an educational seminar and tasting event that drew more than 200 chefs, importers, purveyors, trade media and other key food industry professionals to The Strings hotel in Tokyo. Following the detection of bovine spongiform encephalopathy in the United States in December 2003, Japan was closed to U.S. lamb for nearly 15 years before reopening in July. The USMEF event was designed to showcase the unique flavor profile and other positive attributes of U.S. lamb, introduce menu concepts featuring a variety of lamb cuts and connect suppliers with prospective customers.

Exactly. As I have consistently and constantly stated, the Japanese are the only intelligent Asians. India is only interesting because of its ancient Aryan past. This doesn't mean I want Indians in the West. I have always and constantly stated that I want Asians to stop culturally appropriating Western technology. They have the abacus. The best news is that of Derbyshire's son. Now that the Chinese woman is trying to finding a Chinese woman for her son, the day draws near when the Derbyshires will be out of the West. He will have to come up with the Chinese translation for the Derbyshire name. If you cannot say that the West is best, you are the problem. If you cannot define the West, i.e., that it is not black/Asian/Jewish/Muslim, you are the problem. We know Derbyshire is the problem because he has written that Asians are smarter than whites. Well, he needs to giddy-up and move back to China to make China great again.

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

Qué se está haciendo para detener a los tsunamis#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

26 de diciembre de 2004 a las 00:56. Posiblemente la fecha no te diga nada, pero fue el momento exacto en el que se registró en La India el tsunami más mortífero hasta la fecha. Provocado por un terremoto cuyo epicentro se encontraba cerca de Sumatra, la ola de 24 metros acabó con la vida de 240.000 habitantes y con un recuento de daños por valor de 2.400 millones de dólares.

Los tsunamis son unas enormes olas (o una sucesión de ellas) provocadas por el desplazamiento de una masa de agua que se genera, en la mayoría de ocasiones, por terremotos en el fondo marino. Cuando el fondo marino se desplaza en sentido vertical, las aguas pierden el equilibrio y, al recuperarlo, se producen las olas. Así pues, cuanto más violento sea el terremoto, mayor magnitud tendrá el tsunami. Por ello, los tsunamis suelen tener lugar en el Océano Pacífico, donde se encuentra la zona de mayor actividad sísmica de la Tierra.

La palabra "tsunami" es de origen japonés y se compone de dos términos: "tsu", que significa puerto o bahía, y "nami", que significa ola.

Cuando un tsunami se acerca a la costa empieza a perder velocidad dado que la profundidad del agua se reduce, pero si hablamos de una ola de 24 metros como la que azotó India (24 metros al tocar tierra, ojo), puede que esta barrera natural se antoje insuficiente. Además, al reducirse la velocidad aumenta la altura. Por ello, los países han tomado cartas en el asunto y a lo largo de estos años han desarrollado diferentes medidas para minimizar daños.

Un repaso a la génesis de un tsunami

Aunque ya hemos resumido someramente cómo se gesta un tsunami, no está de más entender qué es lo que pasa en nuestro planeta para se produzca este impresionante fenómeno natural. Por lo general, la mayoría de tsunamis se producen por un terremoto submarino provocado por el movimiento de las fallas en la corteza terrestre. Por ello el Cinturón de Fuego del Pacífico es tan problemático y suele ser el más afectado por los tsunamis, porque se encuentra justo en una zona de fricción de varias placas tectónicas (euroasiática, norteamericana, caribe, cocos, nazca, antártica, pacífica, indo-australiana y filipina).

Cuando las placas se superponen, la que se sitúa por encima desplaza una masa de agua enorme hacia arriba, alterando el equilibrio de la superficie marina formando una especie de joroba. Cuando esa joroba cae, es decir, cuando la superficie recupera el equilibrio, se produce una ola o una sucesión de estas.

Entiéndelo como si golpeases un cable tenso por debajo. Al golpear generas una tensión que se traduce en unas ondas a lo largo del cable. Un tsunami se produce cuando el golpe es muy, muy fuerte.

La velocidad media de un tsunami es de unos 191 metros por segundo, es decir, más de 700 kilómetros por hora.

La velocidad del tsunami dependerá de la profundidad del lecho marino. De hecho, se puede calcular multiplicando la gravedad terrestre por la profundidad del agua y sacando la raíz cuadrada. La profundidad media del suelo oceánico es de unos 3.730 metros, por lo que la velocidad media de un tsunami es de unos 191 metros por segundo, es decir, más de 700 kilómetros por hora.

Cuando impacta en la costa sufren el efecto de la refracción, reduciendo su amplitud de onda pero aumentando su altura. Ahí es donde se produce el desastre, puesto que de haber poblaciones costeras, la ola arrasará con ellas hasta que toda su energía se disperse. En el caso del tsunami de India, la energía fue de 26 megatones, 1.500 veces la energía de la bomba atómica de Hiroshima.

¿Cómo se detecta un tsunami?

Boya Dart Esta es una de las centenas de boyas DART que hay repartidas, principalmente, por el Océano Pacífico.

Detectar un tsunami no es tarea fácil, puesto que no hay un indicador preciso que detecte la generación del mismo. El método más común es midiendo la escala sísmica de los terremotos submarinos. En Europa, por ejemplo, tenemos el "Grupo de Coordinación Intergubernamental para el Sistema de Alerta Temprana y Mitigación de Tsunamis en el Atlántico Nororiental, el Mediterráneo y los Mares Conectados", más conocido como ICG/NEAMTWS. Consta de cinco centros con sismógrafos situados en Grecia, Francia, Italia, Portugal y Turquía que emiten una alerta al detectar un terremoto de magnitud 5,5 o más en la escala Richter en las zonas costeras. Esto, recordemos, es un sistema de alerta temprana. Que haya un terremoto submarino no implica que haya un tsunami.

El método más moderno y fiable que tenemos actualmente hace uso de las boyas DART (Deep-ocean Assessment and Reporting of Tsunamis). Dichas boyas se quedan ancladas al fondo de mar y cuentan con un sensor de presión en las profundidades. La boya mide la altura de la columna de agua y su volumen, entre otros parámetros, y transmite la información vía satélite a los centros de tsunamis. No resulta sorprendente, por tanto, que a ubicación de las boyas coincida con las zonas de colisión de placas tectónicas.

Boyas Y Placas Los límites de las placas tectónicas están marcados en rojo, verde y naranja. Los puntos son la ubicación de las boyas DART. Como puede verse, están colocadas en zonas de fricción.

Si se detecta un movimiento sospechoso o indicio de tsunami (como un cambio brusco en la presión o altura) se emite una alerta a los centros, que deberán decidir qué acción emprender. Estos se encuentran en Australia, Chile, Ecuador, Tailandia, Rusia e India.

Las protecciones contra tsunamis

Las principales barreras contra los tsunamis son las naturales, como los arrecifes de coral o las islas. Kanyakumari, por ejemplo, aun siendo una de las zonas más afectadas por el tsunami de 2004, vio reducido el impacto del la ola por tener grandes barreras de coral en sus costas, que dividieron el tsunami y redujeron su tensión, ergo su poder destructivo. Actuaron como una muralla natural que, si bien no fue suficiente, hizo que hoy podamos decir que pudo ser peor.

Por desgracia, el coral está donde está y no puede moverse ni pretenderse que haya arrecifes de coral en todos lados. Así pues, se tienen que desarrollar otras medidas que ayuden a frenar el avance de estas enormes olas. ¿Cómo? Vamos a verlo.

Con murallas de toda la vida

Si no hay barreras naturales, habrá que construirlas. Eso mismo debió pensar el gobierno de Japón tras el terremoto (y posterior tsunami) de 2011, cuando levantaron una serie de muros en la línea costera para frenar el impacto de olas futuras. Hasta el momento de su construcción, las zonas más propensas a ser afectadas por estos desastres naturales tenían un rompeolas de unos cuatro metros que fue insuficiente.

En total, Japón ha construido 395 kilómetros de muros de 12,5 metros de altura a lo largo de sus costas

Así pues, los japoneses sustituyeron esos modestos rompeolas por unos muros de cemento de 12,5 metros de alto. En total se han construido 395 kilómetros de muros que le han costado al gobierno japonés unos 12,74 mil millones de dólares. La idea no es que paren los tsunamis, puesto que una ola más grande puede pasarla “sin problemas”, sino frenar su avance y rascar algunos minutos para conseguir evacuar a la población.

Dicha obra titánica ha ida acompañada de la prohibición de construir nuevos edificios en algunas zonas costeras y el desplazamiento de los residentes a zonas más elevadas. Por desgracia, nunca llueve a gusto de todos. Algunos ciudadanos creen que el muro afectará al turismo y que el dinero invertido en su levantamiento también debía haberse invertido en reconstrucciones de infraestructuras dañadas.

Como curiosidad, la sede de Sony en Japón tiene una protección anti-tsunamis que eleva un muro de tres pisos de alto para disminuir el impacto de la ola. Tras el terremoto y tsunami que asoló Japón en 2011, la empresa nipona tuvo que cerrar varias fábricas dedicadas a la producción de blu-rays, baterías y CDs. Otra compañía afectada fue Toyota.

Partiéndolo en trozos durante su travesía

Ya tenemos claro que cuando el tsunami llega a tierra es demasiado tarde para frenar sus efectos. ¿Solución? Hacer que pierda fuerza durante su viaje. Los tsunamis se mueven horizontalmente, por lo que si se consigue partir en varios trozos y dividir las olas en varias partes, su fuerza será más débil y las probabilidades de que no lleguen a la costa aumentarán.

Por desgracia, todavía no hay ningún sistema similar operativo. Lo más “sencillo” (entre infinitas comillas) sería construir pequeños islotes artificiales en lugares clave, pero eso implica un despliegue de medios que no todos los países se pueden permitir. China, por ejemplo, ha demostrado que se puede ganar terreno al mar cogiendo sedimentos del fondo marino y amontonándolos. De momento lo han hecho en las Spraty Island (mapa superior) para construir bases militares, puertos marítimos y aeropuertos (por eso las zonas salen desenfocadas), pero es un método que Tad Murty, vicepresidente de la Sociedad Internacional de los Tsunamis, cree que puede funcionar.

Un método que se contempla es la creación de islas artificiales usando el plástico que hay en los océanos

De hecho, Murty cree que podríamos matar dos pájaros de un tiro. Actualmente existe una superficie de 1,6 millones de kilómetros cuadrados de plástico en los océanos, por lo que una solución sería aprovecharlo para crear islotes artificiales anti-tsunamis. Habría que ingeniárselas para dejarlos fijos en el mar, pero al menos se le daría una utilidad a estos desechos. Los últimos datos hablan de 80.000 toneladas de plástico y 1,8 trillones de piezas, por lo que lo mismo hay suficiente para más de una construcción.

Con ondas de gravedad acústica

Un método futuro que se contempla para destruir los tsunamis es usar ondas de gravedad acústica. Cuando se produce un terremoto se genera una vibración, es decir, ondas. Si disparamos ondas de gravedad acústica contra las generadas por el terremoto se puede cambiar su forma para que ocupen un área más grande, disipando así su energía y la fuerza del tsunami.

Esto todavía no es posible, ya que se necesitaría una enorme cantidad de energía para generar las ondas, por no hablar de que tendrían que tener una precisión más que milimétrica para funcionar. Usama Kadri, profesor de Matemáticas Aplicadas en la Universidad de Cardiff, explicó este sistema en un paper y dijo en una entrevista con Gizmodo que ya se están llevando a cabo experimentos en laboratorio.

Mientras llega el futuro, construyamos refugios

Por el momento, las dos medidas que hay en funcionamiento son las boyas DART y las murallas, pero ya hemos visto que son insuficientes. Un muro, salvo que sea de 30 metros y muy ancho, no puede parar un tsunami, y las boyas DART solo funcionan para detectar. Así pues, algunos países han optado por proteger a los ciudadanos con refugios a prueba de tsunamis.

Estados Unidos construyó el primero en 2014 en el condado de Greys Harbour, al sur de Washington. En concreto, se trata de un refugio de evacuación vertical situado en la Escuela Elemental Ocosta que puede albergar a unas mil personas. La zona de evacuación se encuentra en el tejado, a 17 metros del suelo, una altura muy superior a la que la inundación de un tsunami podría alcanzar en la zona.

Sin embargo, si hablamos de refugios tenemos que mencionar el STATIM (Storm, -Tornado And Tsunami Interconnected Modules- Shelter System), una cápsula naranja que puede flotar ante una inundación. Está construida en hormigón armado y se trata de una estructura fija, es decir, que está anclada al suelo. Ante una inundación, el agua la arrastraría como si de un submarino se tratase.

Fabricarla cuesta unos 100.000 dólares, está equipada con GPS y puede almacenar comida y agua suficiente para que las 80 personas que caben en su interior subsistan una semana. El sistema fue desarrollado por Miguel A. Serrano, de Brahman Developments, que afirma que “no sería un paseo divertido, pero se sobreviviría".

Japón, que esperar volver a ser víctima de otro tsunami en los próximos años, se ha acorazado con una serie de torres a lo largo de la costa de Nakoku. En concreto, son 90 torres (y las que están por venir) con una altura de 20 metros con capacidad para 362 personas y unos cimientos de entre 14,5 y 30 metros de profundidad. Por si acaso, las torres también están equipadas con unas cápsulas de evacuación.

Están situadas en la prefectura de Kochi, de 720.000 habitantes, porque, según las previsiones, será una de las zonas más afectadas por el tsunami que está por venir. El gobierno regional invierte 430 millones de dólares anuales en estas medidas, el doble de lo que gastaba antes del terremoto de 2011.

Qué hacer ante un tsunami

Señal tsunami

Ahora que ya sabemos un poco mejor qué son los tsunamis y qué se está haciendo para combatirlos, no está de más saber cómo actuar en caso de que nos topemos con uno (algo que ojalá nunca pase). Las zonas propensas a ser víctimas de un tsunami tienen diferentes mapas con rutas de evacuación (marcadas con una señal azul con una ola) y localizaciones de refugios, por lo que no está de más que preguntes por ellas o las busques antes de viajar.

También es importante que conozcas los indicios de que se avecina un tsunami, como terremotos intensos y bajadas repentinas del nivel del agua en la costa. Como ya sabrás, al notar un terremoto lo primero es ponerse a cubierto (tú y toda tu familia) bajo un elemento que pueda protegerte de posibles derrumbamientos.

Ante un tsunami, evacúa y no esperes una señal. Busca siempre zonas altas de interior

Aquí hay una regla de oro: suelta todo lo que tengas en las manos, agarra a tu familia, cubríos y esperad a que el terremoto pase. Una vez pase, y no antes, muévete a una zona alta del interior. Evacúa, no esperes. Cuanto más aguardes una señal más se acercará la ola y menos tiempo tendrás para huir. Si ya estás en una zona segura, obedece las órdenes del personal al mando y haz lo que te digan que hagas.

Cuando todo haya pasado, presta atención a las alertas locales y las autoridades. Ellas te dirán a qué zonas puede accederse y a las que no. Evita ir por zonas inundadas, porque aunque no lo veas, el agua puede ser mucho más profunda de lo que parece. Aléjate de edificios dañados, carreteras y puentes, puesto que las estructuras pueden estar dañadas.

Finalmente, desde el Departamento de Seguridad Nacional de Estados Unidos recomiendan que, una vez todo vuelva a su cauce y puedas acceder a la casa, hagas fotos de absolutamente todos los daños y contactes con el seguro para obtener ayuda. Es cierto que hay pérdidas que son irrecuperables, pero bienvenido será todo lo que pueda sustituirse. Sea como sea, lo importante es salvar la vida, no los objetos.

GroupM ad ex forecast

GroupM updated its 2018 and 2019 ad investment forecasts. GroupM slightly downgraded 2018 growth expectations from 4.5% to 4.3%. 2019 growth projections are also whittled from 3.9% to 3.6%, with total new investment anticipated to reach $19B instead of the $23B earlier predicted. [Recent US dollar appreciation versus just about every other currency helped suppress this growth.] Stress on the auto category stood out in feedback from GroupM’s worldwide network, as did the absence of any rebound in CPG investment with traditional media. These views and more are discussed in This Year, Next Year, GroupM’s twice yearly look at worldwide media investment trends authored by Futures Director, Adam Smith. “GroupM’s still strong but slightly fraying 2018 view ties to macro questions: tighter money, China’s slowing growth, and the potential for pricey trade wars,” said Smith. “Real interest rates are edging up globally, but serious potential problems remain limited to a fragile five — Argentina, South Africa, Brazil, Turkey and Venezuela.” GroupM forecasts that ten countries will provide 83% of all 2019 growth. China remains the largest contributor, but 2019 will be its sixth successive year with single-digit ad growth and mark its lowest growth rate yet recorded. Still, its USD 90 billion ad market is second only to the USA, and has doubled since 2010. Despite rapid consumerization, China’s advertising intensity peaked at 0.78% of GDP in 2006 and has trended down to a prospective 0.67% in 2019. Also Read: Between 2018 – 2021, online video advertising to grow at average 18% a year Ranked second, the U.S. is experiencing good macroeconomic indicators like lower unemployment and improved consumer confidence, but increasing energy prices, rising interest rates, and low unemployment have many concerned about the potential for increased inflation on top of a yawning deficit. Marketers continue to scrutinize digital investment with emphasis on verification and value. Ranked third, India is expected to contribute $1.35B of growth. This is roughly the same as Australia’s, Russia’s and Brazil’s combined growth, even though India’s total ad economy is a mere quarter of the others’ combined heft. India’s 14% ad investment growth is rooted in 7% real consumer spending growth. Japan is fourth. Japanese advertising has tracked ahead of its GDP in the post-Lehman cycle with media spending per capita picking up sharply since 2016. The 2020 Olympics and a surge in biddable media are powering tailwinds, but a 2019 consumption tax rise from 8% to 10% and Japan’s belated confrontation with value, viewability and verification in digital supply chain are foreseeable headwinds. A resilient UK is fifth. Despite fears of Brexit calamity and consumer fatigue, advertising investment remains propelled by massive advertising digitization (61% of predicted investment in 2019), and GroupM’s UK forecast remains buoyant. This is partly because of the market’s characteristic flexibility. In an emergency, advertisers know they can turn off the tap. Concerning the new forecast, GroupM’s CEO, Kelly Clark said, “Worldwide advertising investment grows slowly but marketing has never moved faster. Automation proliferates; cycles accelerate; talent grows more mobile. The gap between the cost of failure and the value of success grows wider. For advertisers, this underscores the importance of a worldview and trusted partners who can help their brands perform where the growth can be found.”

          Korean-Japanese POW in India      Cache   Translate Page      
From The Anguish of Surrender: Japanese POWs of World War II, by Ulrich Straus (U. Washington Press, 2005), p. 191:
The last Japanese POW challenge to Allied prison authorities took place in the spring of 1945 at the British-run facility at Bikaner, located on the edge of the Indian desert some two hundred forty miles west of Delhi. In this camp, originally constructed to house German prisoners of the First World War, the first prisoner was Senior Sergeant Aoki Akira, whose plane was shot down over Rangoon and crash-landed. He eventually became one of the POW section leaders. Although a Japanese citizen, as were all Koreans at the time, Aoki was a member of the royal house of Korea. Mizui Hajime, a Japanese fellow prisoner deeply imbued with the justice of Japan's cause, paid Aoki the ultimate tribute of noting that he possessed "a high degree of military spirit as well as strong leadership qualities," even though he spoke Japanese with a heavy accent.

In a curious historical footnote, Aoki, reverting to his family name Rhee, achieved a measure of renown in 1949 when he became the first commandant of the Republic of Korea's nascent air force academy. In the following year, shortly after the outbreak of the Korean War, it was Colonel Rhee who took possession of a shipment of ten American P-51 Mustang fighters at Itazuke Airfield on Kyushu. After only three days of training on the new planes, Colonel Rhee, still full of the old fighting spirit, led a formation of three P-51s in a low-altitude raid on a North Korean concentration of T-34 tanks south of Seoul. Hit in the exchange of fire, Rhee crashed his plane into the enemy formation on a suicidal dive and was posthumously promoted to the rank of brigadier general.

Our comeback with the Wallpaper of the Week series, it’s crazy to imagine there’s more than 350+ wallpapers available to download for your different screen resolutions. Things have changed ever since so we decided to change the formula, each week we’ll try our best to publish one of our own pictures as a challenge. Let us know of your thoughts or suggestions so we can adjust for future endeavours.

For this week’s wallpaper, we are sharing this image by François Hoang. With my Osore: Sararīman Lightroom Presets (by the way get 10% off, just use "abdz"). Currently I am in "exploration mode" with the pictures I took during my time in Japan, the presets have given me a new vision of things you can do with your pictures whenever it is daytime or night time. It's purely experimental and you just gotta love the results. Here we are with the famous Arashiyama Bamboo Grove, a natural forest of bamboo in Arashiyama, Kyoto, Japan.

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

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

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


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

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


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

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

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

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

Oil Buyers’ Club

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

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

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

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

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

Smell of Tear Gas

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

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

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

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

El arresto de Carlos Ghosn retrasa la presentación del esperado Nissan Leaf e-Plus de 60 kWh#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

La detención el pasado 19 de noviembre de Carlos Ghosn, el ya ex CEO de Nissan, ha provocado de forma inesperada que la presentación del Nissan Leaf E-Plus 2019 con batería de 60 kWh se haya retrasado hasta nueva orden. Debía hacer su debut en un evento especial de Nissan con motivo del Salón de Los Angeles. “El anuncio oficial en relación a los detalles del Nissan Leaf 2019 con prestaciones adicionales se ha pospuesto a una fecha ulterior”, se podía leer en el comunicado de Nissan.

Así, las dos únicas novedades de Nissan en el Salón de Los Angeles fueron los restyling de la berlina Maxima y del SUV Murano. Según cuentan en The Wall Street Journal, Nissan había contratado a la actriz Margot Robbie, como embajadora de la marca, y al Japanese American National Museum para la celebración del Nissan Futures.

Un evento sobre movilidad futura con los Nissan Murano y Maxima como novedades

Este evento es una celebración de la movilidad eléctrica, de las smart cities y un foro de discusión sobre la movilidad del futuro. Es la primera vez que se celebra en Estados Unidos ya que, coincidiendo con el Salón de Los Angeles se desvelaría ahí el Leaf de 60 kWh. El evento se celebró, pero no hubo ninguna novedad (el Nissan Leaf Nismo RC fue desvelado en Japón).

El Nissan Leaf de mayor autonomía, conocido como Leaf e-Plus, es actualmente el modelo de la marca más esperado. Todo apunta a que equipará una batería de 60 kWh para una autonomía real de entre 320 y 360 km. Será, además, compatible con cargas rápidas de al menos 100 kW. El Nissan Leaf actualmente en venta dispone de una batería de 40 kWh para una autonomía real de algo más de 240 km.

¿Estará el Nissan Leaf e-Plus en el Salón de Detroit, en enero de 2019? Es imposible saberlo, pero sí estarán presentes dos concept cars electricos, según ha confirmado Alfonso Albaisa, jefe de diseño de Nissan e Infiniti. Ambos modelos serán una evolución del Infiniti Q Inspiration Concept.

Lucha de poderes

En realidad todo dependerá de si para entonces Nissan tiene nuevo CEO. El consejo de dirección se reunirá el próximo 17 de diciembre para escoger al nuevo CEO que tomará las riendas de Nissan. Se habla de Hiroto Saikawa, actual CEO interino, y de Toshiyuki Shiga. El primero es considerado el instigador de la investigación a la que está sometido Carlso Ghosn, mientras que el segundo es un hombre de confianza de Ghosn.

Más allá de presentar entonces el Nissan Leaf e-Plus, según quien salga elegido dará claras indicaciones de hacia donde irá la Alianza Renault-Nissan. Y es que para Saikawa, como muchos otros japoneses, nunca han terminado de aceptar que un pequeño fabricante tuviese el control de Nissan. Desean un reparto más equitativo en el control de la Alianza. Recordemos que Renault vendió 3,76 millones de coches en 2017, mientras que Nissan vendió 5,82 millones de unidades.

But why would China be decades behind Japan and South Korea? Both of those countries suffered much more intense destruction by war, and South Korea was dirt poor just a few short decades back, just like China. The reason is they have better work-related ethics – not just “work ethics” as in hustle and bustle, but more honesty and focus on quality.
SK and Japan did well because they received hundreds of billions in aid and technology from the US post WWII and the Korean war. SK companies like Samsung, Hyundai were able to succeed because the SK economy was extremely protectionist against Japanese cars and electronics. Kudos to them of course that they did not just take the aid and squandered it through massive corruption like the African countries. They have a good work ethic, far higher IQ and social cohesiveness. China lacks social cohesiveness because it is so big. In a society of 1.3 billion, it's hard to get anyone to care about anyone else other than himself and his own family. China is still a total dog-eat-dog, every man for himself corrupt hellhole, the Wild East. Trillions of dollars flowed out of China in the last 2 decades as their corrupt government and business elites emigrated out of the country in droves with their stolen wealth(before they get thrown in jail), which led to the real estate boom in all western countries. It's no coincidence that our real estate market is now crashing. Trump thinks it's because Fed rates are too high and blamed it on Jeremy Powell, but the real reason is the Chinese have stopped buying because of Xi Jin Ping's latest capital control measures. The US never would've developed if our rich industrialists like Rockefeller, Carnegie, Vanderbilt, Ford et al. took all their money and ran to Europe instead of reinvesting in the US. If China does not control its capital outflow, it will take it a lot longer to get to SK/Japan status. Right now every Chinese still just wants to get rich and get the hell out, like the Indians. Countries like these could never really develop. Infrastructure alone does not make a good society. A good society is where people are honest, polite, civic minded, and actually care about their neighbors, communities and countrymen. China is a loooonngg way from that.

I don't have a lot of experience with China. But I do have some experience with Chinese produced goods. You ever try to fix a Chinese VCR? Japanese VCR machines were always easy to fix. How about a Chinese TV? Produced with recalled capacitors!! Recalled years before the TV was made! Oh well, it was a cheap ($6) fix. Chinese handheld UHF/VHF radios? Actually not that bad, but pretty screwy performance at the margins. And it always overheats and shuts down at 126.125 and 155.130 (Animal Control). Damnedest thing I ever saw. Animal Control, who would have ever figured? You know "lowest bidder" might mean something entirely different in China.

Eh, it isn't an attractive for now. Give it another decade of advancement, and maybe more importantly, an even steeper decline in America, and see where people choose to live. Two generations ago, Western Europeans were clamoring to get into North America and Australia. A few decades before that, Japanese went to Brazil and Peru, and were used as cheap labor on Hawaiian sugarcane fields. Until very recently, S. Korea was a leader in emigration. That's the problem with static analyses--People often cannot see beyond the present. For all its warts, China today is vastly superior to China circa 2008, or 1998, or 1988. And we really don't want to compare present-day America to American living standards before the neoliberal revolution. *Cue for the resident morons to ignore political economy and empirical history and chime in about how America has declined because of its extra melanin content and supposedly incompatible new ethnic groups. You guys are so dumb, you cannot see your own stupidity.

Agree 100% with Last Straw. Japan economically and socially modernized 100 years earlier than China. It was never colonized, and postwar Japan was propped up as a bulwark against Communism in the region. The US military rulers encouraged tech transfer and opened up the US domestic market, but it also rehabilitated the former Japanese fascist politicians and crushed any leftist and progressive dissent. S. Korea's modern status has only been around since the start of the millennium. For much of its post-independence history, it was essentially a military dictatorship with a piss poor living standard. Nothing actually guarantees China will supersede other countries. Then again, nothing guarantees the US will stop its sharp decline. But the idea of Japanese, Korean, American, or any other nation's economic dynamism being a product of some innate cultural superiority is only plausible for historically challenged idiots and chauvinists.

Well, of course, we can hope so – but the collapse of many schools and other public buildings, next to residential buildings that were left standing, strongly suggests corruption, not just “poverty” as the underlying problem.
I doubt China is much more corrupt than other countries with comparable per capita income.
But why would China be decades behind Japan and South Korea? Both of those countries suffered much more intense destruction by war, and South Korea was dirt poor just a few short decades back, just like China. The reason is they have better work-related ethics – not just “work ethics” as in hustle and bustle, but more honesty and focus on quality.
China has been behind Japan since the Meji Restoration in the 1870s. So it will take China the same amount of effort and time to catch up with Japan as with other Western countries. As for South Korea, it has the same population of Shanghai plus Shenzhen. It is relatively easy to build up such a small country. Shanghai and Shenzhen are as prosperous, innovative, and vibrant as any South Korean cities. While South Korea is ahead in semiconductor (for now) and conventional auto industries, China is ahead in super computer, quantum physics and its application, space (e.g. GPS) and missile (e.g. hypersonic glider) technologies, military aviation (e.g. UCAV, 5th gen. fighters and heavy transport, and soon strategic stealth bomber) and ship-building (e.g. nuclear submarine and aircraft carrier), high speed rail and electric vehicles, just naming a few.
But China also has leveraged the size of its market to entice foreign companies to build factories there, and to compel them to hand over their IP (and that is in addition to outright IP theft). And they STILL could not match the South Koreans for speed of development.
The difference is, foreign companies will never transfer, and China will never be able to obtain, the most critical technologies. This was not the case with South Korea and Taiwan. Both got the most critical technologies in the fabrication of semiconductors from the West and became power houses in this industry. Did you see a pattern here? Both are small U.S. protectorates that will never threaten the West.
Amazing (not). Take a moment to compare the scope of “innovation” coming out of China to that coming of Germany when it burst onto the scene in the late 19th and early 20th century, or out of America in its heyday and even today.
In the era of Germany, scientific and technological breakthroughs were relatively easier to achieve compared to today. So it may not be entirely fair to compare it to today's China. As for the U.S., China is catch up.
I wish the Chinese well, and I sincerely hope they will replace the hopelessly corrupt and thuggish U.S. as the leading world power rather sooner than later. I do respect their accomplishments, as far as they go, but they really don’t lead the world in any desirable quality – they are just big, that’s all.
Unlike maybe even 50 years ago, today's research projects often require enormous treasure and brain power, to be big is an absolute advantage.

          Stitching a Future for an Age-Old Palestinian Embroidery Tradition      Cache   Translate Page      

In a big-windowed lecture room, Wafa Ghnaim, author of a self-published book on Palestinian embroidery (known as tatreez) and founder of the nonprofit teaching initiative Taztreez & Tea, kicks off a three-hour needlework workshop with a heated primer on the perfect cross-stitch.

“Palestinians, we have a way for everything, even cutting our bread,” the 35-year-old entrepreneur, dressed in an intricate, hand-threaded maxi skirt, explains.

Whereas Japanese needlework, for example, focuses “on the way each stitch lays on top of each other,” Ghnaim says, Palestinian embroidery emphasizes the “cleanliness on the back of the cloth” and the ability to make out the motif on both sides. Eventually, she assures the class, “you’ll have a clear front and back.”

At least, that’s the goal. The larger mission of Ghnaim’s workshops, lectures, and publications—produced with backing from the Brooklyn Arts Council—is to revitalize the art of Palestinian embroidery, reaching new fans in the diaspora.


Ghnaim, who was born and raised in Oregon, is the daughter of the acclaimed embroiderer Feryal Abbasi-Ghnaim, the 2018 recipient of a National Heritage award fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts (“She even got a letter from Donald Trump,” chuckles Ghnaim. “He didn’t look that [her work] was Palestinian.”) She grew up apprenticing for her mother, who in 1948 fled war-torn Safad, now a town in present-day northern Israel.

The age-old craft of tatreez, a folk art practiced by rural women for centuries, serves as a window into the history of Palestinian exile. Mothers and grandmothers used to pass down designs, with different motifs associated with each village. After the founding of Israel in 1948, 750,000 Palestinian residents—roughly half the population—were forced into exile, an event remembered in Arabic as the Nakba, or catastrophe. Another disruption took place in 1967 during the Six-Day War—known as the Naksa, or defeat—when Israeli forces first occupied the West Bank. Basic survival superseded the role of craft traditions and place-based practices were upended.

“When Palestinians were exiled in 1948 and 1967, they weren’t carrying a pattern book. They were carrying their baby and running out the door,” Ghnaim says.

Yet in Syria, Lebanon, and Jordan, refugee camps also became vehicles of exchange as communities from all over Palestine converged. “There was a lot of sharing,” adds Ghnaim, as together women “had to recall and recreate their motifs.”


In the 1960s and 1970s, the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) revived folk traditions to promote Palestinian national heritage. According to Rachel Dedman, a London-based art critic who curated a show on the political history of Palestinian embroidery, tatreez became “a key signifier” of “endurance in the face of Israeli erasure and violence.” By the late 1980s, when the First Intifada erupted, embroidery emerged as a potent expression of resistance. The traditionally feminine craft spread as Palestinian men, languishing under Israeli lock-up, began honing their skills, explains Dedman.

In Ghnaim’s classes, men now typically make up a modest portion of the attendees. “I think that gendered aspect is breaking down, which is necessary for this art to stay alive,” she says. “I see in my classes a whole wide mix of people. I don’t just see Palestinian women and Palestinian men. I see non-Palestinian women. I see non-Palestinian men.”

Ghnaim’s educational events began running in Brooklyn and will soon move to Washington, D.C. On the day that I attend in October 2018, the pop-up is running alongside the D.C. Palestinian Film and Arts Festival, an annual lineup of Palestinian cultural offerings that features a richly embroidered tatreez design as its logo. Today, the assignment given to the 17 workshop attendees is to reproduce a delicate cypress motif, known as the “Tree of Life.”


The room grows quiet with concentration, and the afternoon passes quickly. Unlike other species, the cypress tree “stays green and survives,” explains Ghnaim. “It gives until it dies and that’s the purpose of life. You give until your last day.” In the time it takes me to throw together a few rows of practice cross-stitches, Razan Sahuri, a Jordanian-born nutritionist, has already shown off a tiny, pristinely-stitched cypress tree.

“I think most Palestinians, when we see the embroidery, it feels like home,” says Sahuri, who moved to D.C. three years ago from Dubai, and grew up feeling caught between cultures. “I’m Palestinian but I’ve never been to Palestine. When it’s so far away, you want a thread to hang onto your culture. Pun intended!”

Caught between home and exile, past and present, the meticulously crafted stitches seem almost suspended somewhere between time and space. Dedman, the London curator, explains that embroidery is “by nature labored, private, and slow.” Far from a spontaneous public expression, the time-intensive pieces nonetheless form a quieter form of protest, with an “extended temporality” that spans its own steady, thread-by-thread creation.

Sahuri finds comfort in this measured, repetitive motion. “It’s like meditation. You can’t think of anything else,” she says. “I don’t know if mind numbing is the right word?”


The scale on each piece is minuscule—each hole on the cloth just about the size of a period—and the work is eye-wateringly intensive. I have to pull apart my mangled tatreez stitches three times to start over. Though I had seen embroidered garments and souvenirs many times during my stays in Ramallah, it was only in attempting my own tatreez creation that I began to grasp the effort involved, as well as the complexity of each craft piece’s history. Embedded in each tatreez cloth are narratives of displacement and belonging, with embroiderers adding their own personal litany of sorrows and joys.

“Someone is really shedding skin when they’re producing the art,” says Ghnaim, who plans on pursuing a Ph.D. in Art History to trace the evolution of tatreez as it moves between generations in the diaspora. This year marks the re-release of an expanded print edition of her book: Tatreez & Tea: Embroidery and Storytelling in the Palestinian Diaspora. It also commemorates 70 long years of Palestinian exile.

          The Dow drops 800 points as trade fears ratchet back up      Cache   Translate Page      


Stocks fell sharply Tuesday after optimism for easing trade tensions between Washington and Beijing waned and as Treasury yields turned lower, stirring worries about the prospect of slowing economic growth around the world.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 3%, or nearly 800 points. The Nasdaq Composite plunged 3.8%, meanwhile, and the S&P 500 shed 3.2% to below its 200-day moving average. The three US indices had all jumped more than 1% on Monday as President Donald Trump touted his weekend meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping.

But trade expectations unwound after key details on the framework of negotiations appeared unsettled. Trump called himself "a Tariff Man" in a tweet about China early Tuesday, a reminder that further escalations are on deck if a deal isn't reached within 90 days. Trade-sensitive stocks were among the Dow's biggest losers, with Caterpillar down nearly 7% and Boeing 4.8% lower.

Not helping the mood, Trump named US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer to lead negotiations going forward. Lighthizer is seen as a hardliner on China, so the pick cast doubt on expectations for a quick agreement.

"While this outcome is preferable to many alternatives, investors should be clear that agreeing to negotiate is no guarantee of resolution,” said Ron Temple, managing director and head of US Equities at Lazard Asset Management. "Details are scant and the two sides have offered different statements of what was agreed."

Treasury yields continued to slide, with the 10-year down 7.6 basis points to 2.915%. Spreads between long- and short-term bonds inverted, an occurrence seen as a potential recession signal, for the first time since the financial crisis.

"The inversion of parts of the yield curve is further evidence that investors are coming round to our downbeat view of the prospects for the US economy, and points to further weakness in the S&P 500," said John Higgins, an analyst at Capital Economics.

Adding to concerns, Brexit debates in the UK’s House of Commons got off to a rocky start. Prime Minister Theresa May suffered a series of setbacks Tuesday, and the British government was found in contempt of Parliament after not publishing the full legal advice on plans to leave the European Union.

The dollar stumbled 0.7% against the Japanese yen, a closely-watched exchange rate during times of financial stress. The VIX, meanwhile, jumped by nearly a quarter to 20.48.

Oil prices climbed from recent lows ahead of a meeting Thursday and Friday among OPEC and other major producers led by Russia, who are expected to make a deal to cut coordinated output levels. West Texas Intermediate fell to trade just below $53 per barrel, and Brent was down 0.5% to $61.58.

NOW WATCH: 7 places you can't find on Google Maps

          The 10 highest-paid YouTubers of 2018 include the Paul brothers and a 7-year-old toy reviewer — here's the full list (GOOG, GOOGL)      Cache   Translate Page      

jake paul logan paul

  • Forbes recently released its list of the highest-paid YouTube stars of 2018, based on data and interviews with industry insiders.
  • The list is exclusively male, and half of the top-earning YouTubers share a focus on video games.
  • Collectively, the 10 top-earning YouTubers take home more than $180 million a year.

YouTube's impact on pop culture can't be ignored — the platform's top stars become the world's premier influencers, coveted by media outlets and advertisers for their ability to reach tens of millions of followers on a daily basis.

As influencers become more valuable, many popular YouTubers have been able to turn their personal brands into million-dollar businesses. While the formula for YouTube success varies between channels, the most successful YouTubers have been able to find new sources of income beyond the ad revenue on their videos. For some, that means personal clothing lines and TV appearances, while others have capitalized on their success with sold-out live tours and custom toy brands.

Forbes recently released its list of the highest-paid YouTubers, based on their earnings from June 1, 2017, to June 1, 2018.

Here's how they rank:

10. Logan Paul — $14.5 million

Vlogger Logan Paul was YouTube's fourth-highest earner last year. But his personal brand took a tumble after he uploaded a video of a dead body he found in Japan's Aokigahara forest, a location that is notorious for suicides.

As a result, YouTube removed Paul from the Google Preferred program, impacting his ad revenue. However, his channel continued to rack up subscribers, and he continues to earn income from his personal merchandise and celebrity appearances. Despite the scandal in Japan, Paul was able to increase his earnings by $2 million in the course of a year.

One of Paul's most watched stunts this year was a pay-per-view boxing match against British YouTuber KSI held in London. The fight ended in a draw, and the internet stars are planning a rematch for next year.

9. PewDiePie — $15.5 million

In past years, Felix "PewDiePie" Kjellberg was, without question, the world's most successful YouTuber.

But recent scandals accusing the video-game commenter of racism and anti-Semitism have led to a slight decline in his sponsorships. Still, like Logan Paul, PewDiePie managed to increase his overall earnings by about $3.5 million between June 2017 and June 2018.

PewDiePie still has the most subscribers of any single account on YouTube with more than 73 million, but will likely be overtaken by Bollywood YouTube channel T-Series in early 2019.

8. Jacksepticeye — $16 million

Irish video-game streamer Sean "Jacksepticeye" McLoughlin was one of the first YouTubers to be a part of PewDiePie's Disney-sponsored Revelmode network, earning him a giant following.

While Disney eventually dumped Revelmode, McLoughlin was eventually signed to create original programming for Disney XD, a TV channel marketed toward children and teens. McLoughlin also serves as a host and stage personality for a number of live events and tours in Europe and North America.

Bianca Ojukwu, wife of late Biafran warlord, and former Nigerian Ambassador to Spain, has shared memories of the moment she became the Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria 30 years ag. he shared her journey on Facebook thanking God for how far He has brought her. She wrote;

''Thirty years ago this day, 4th Dec. 1988, I ventured in trepidation onto the grand stage of the National Theatre, Lagos, as a contestant in the MOST BEAUTIFUL GIRL IN NIGERIA PAGEANT by Silverbird Productions. By the grace of God I won the contest. I was then a law undergraduate at the University of Nigeria. The rest, as they say, is history.

Then it was the era of ‘winner takes all’ as pageant winner. From there I took off to Banjul, where the MISS AFRICA Pageant was held and I once again emerged the Winner. Next was the MISS CHARM Contest in Moscow which saw me emerge as Miss Drushbah. After that was the MISS INTERCONTINENTAL Pageant. I am the ever African ever to have won this Pageant.

This was an awesome experience which provided a wonderful opportunity to visit over 20 countries of the world in the space of one year of my ‘reign’( a great privilege for a mere student) including 12 European countries as well as several other world destinations including Singapore, Japan,Russia, Taipei, Dubai, Republic Of China, Hong Kong where I represented Nigeria at the MISS WORLD beauty Pageant and Cancun, Mexico where I was the Country’s representative at the MISS UNIVERSE Pageant.

It is to God’s glory that I went this far. Today, as always, I continue to celebrate the amazing opportunities God has thrown along my path in life. This is just one of them.''

Japan Needs to Change its Attitude to Foreigners (Editorial Board, December 4, 2018, Bloomberg)

A bill approved by the lower house of the Diet would open Japan's doors to two types of foreign workers. Lower-skilled laborers in 14 sectors would for the first time be able to apply for five-year visas after demonstrating a good command of Japanese. And highly skilled workers would be eligible for work visas that can be renewed indefinitely, could bring their families with them, and could apply for permanent residency after 10 years. The government aims to push the bill through the upper house before the current session ends.

It's a good plan, as far as it goes. There's no question Japan needs the newcomers. At just above 2 percent, the country's unemployment rate is the lowest it's been since the early 1990s; labor shortages are acute in several industries, including construction and nursing care. The longer-term picture is even more worrying. Recent forecasts predict that the population will shrink to two-thirds its current size by 2065. By then, one in four Japanese will be over age 75.

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's government has made progress in getting more women and senior citizens back into the workforce, and is working to nudge up the fertility rate. It's also allowed in more foreigners than many realize, partly through a technical internship program meant to impart skills that workers can take back to their home countries. The new bill is an acknowledgment that such measures won't be nearly enough to stop Japan's working-age population from imploding. There's widespread opposition to mass immigration, so the admission is brave.

The good thing about such a population collapse will be that such nations can offer housing in order to lure the young.

Takeo Yoshikawa was caught spying on Pearl Harbor, he was detained on the day of the Pearl Harbor attack and returned to Japan in a diplomatic prisioner exchange. Japanese Americans in Hawaii rescued and protected an Imperial Japanese airman that crashed during the Pearl Harbor attack. United States intelligence agents intercepted cables sent from Tokyo to the Japanese Consulate in Los Angeles and were able to break the code and read the messages. They revealed that there were a substantial number of Japanese Spy in the US Military, Defense Companies and other sensitive industries. (Declassified in 1978 The MAGIC Background of Pearl Harbor) There were also Japanese spies in Mexico and plans for a Biological attack on San Diego. Japan was also releasing weather balloons carrying incendiary bombs that they hoped would float in America, crash and start fires. One made it as far as Minnesota. It is thought that this was what caused the BATTLE OF LA in 1941. There also needs to be considered that there could be attacks on Japanese Americans by Chinese Americans upset with Japan's atrocities in China. All of which was something the US could not afford to deal with at the time. Most of this has been hidden because the US needed Japan as an ally in the Pacific to contend with Communist China and the Soviet Union.

Photo by Boo and Boo Factory

Our 2018 obsession with all things celestial was all-encompassing—just see our moon phase wall art, starry statement jewelry, and festive holiday table settings for proof. And while the universe still captures our collective imagination, next year we’re excited to bring a little more of our attention back down to Earth, embracing the bounty of inspiration right here on our home planet. “We’re officially declaring 2019 the year of being real,” explains Etsy Trend Expert Dayna Isom Johnson. “And Etsy sellers are leading the charge with all-natural products, a focus on sustainability, and decor cues sourced straight from Mother Earth.” From warm sandstone hues to pretty pressed flowers, the trends topping next year’s list encourage us to celebrate all the awesomeness around us—and we mean all of it. (That’s right: maximalism is back, too!) Read on to discover six of our favorite up-and-coming trending styles.

Burnt orange

“We’re calling it now: Burnt orange is about to be everywhere,” says Dayna. “I’m excited to see this earthy hue take over our homes and outfits.” So if you need us, we’ll be lounging on the couch in our new favorite burnt orange linen jumpsuit, nestled under a cozy burnt orange printed throw, admiring our growing collection of burnt orange statement earrings—and making Dayna’s dreams come true.


In 2018, Dayna turned us onto wabi-sabi, and gave us all license to introduce a little intentional imperfection into our homes. If you, like us, were disproportionately delighted by no longer needing to make the bed, buckle your seatbelts for next year’s permission slip: “Maximalism is the moment we’ve been secretly waiting for,” says Dayna. “Forget settling for a single statement piece or wild accent wall—all your favorite colors, patterns, and prints are now on the table.” So pile on everything that makes you happy, and don’t be afraid to mix and match—more is officially more.

Preserved petals

When it comes to home decor accents planted firmly in the real world, it’s hard to beat good old-fashioned flowers. “Collections of flowers and herbs are the perfect way to bring the outdoors in whatever the season,” says Dayna. Whether you opt for sprigs of baby’s breath pressed between sheets of glass, 19th-century botanist–style, or a more surprising, modern twist on a bouquet in a vase (with all the blooms inside the vessel instead of sprouting from the top!) these wilt-proof wonders will inject a healthy dose of cheer into even the grayest of winter days.

Southwestern styles

“I’m predicting that Southwestern motifs will go hand-in-hand with next year’s more grounded outlook,” says Dayna. Think rugged textures, an emphasis on natural materials like leather and clay, and plenty of pops of bright turquoise for all your jewelry needs (we like it best paired with heavily patinated silver). “Last year’s succulent craze hinted at this cowgirl-chic trend, but in 2019 we’re taking it to the next level: Etsy sellers will be bringing back bolo ties, desert illustrations, and bold woven textiles for an all-out Southwestern resurgence.” Giddyup!


In pin, pillow, or print form, we can’t get enough of the adorable three-toed mammals known for meme-worthy slow-mo road crossings and leisurely dangling upside down from the tropical rainforest trees of South and Central America. “Much like their own unhurried movements, sloths have slowly been on the rise for a few years now, but next year, they’re poised to pick up speed,” says Dayna. “Shoppers and Etsy sellers alike have gravitated to the laid-back demeanor of the sloth, a real-life embodiment of the less-hurried lifestyle many of us strive for every day.”

Here to stay: ‘70s and ‘90s styles

“We’re excited to welcome a fresh crop of trends to the scene in 2019—but we don’t have to say goodbye to all of our old favorites just yet,” says Dayna. Some popular standbys we’ll be taking with us into the new year: ‘70s and ‘90s-influenced styles, including fanny packs, terrazzo finishes, rattan home decor, and our undeniable obsession with llamas.
