Le secteur offensif reste bien trop faible, et le retour d’Oniangué, en manque de rythme, n’a rien changé. Cette défaite envoie Malherbe dans la zone rouge et dans mille tourments.

          Interbody Fusion Cage Market Pegged for Robust Expansion by 2026      Cache   Translate Page      

Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/09/2019 -- Interbody fusion cage is an implantable medical device utilized to maintain the forminal height of the spine. Interbody fusion cages are interleaved between the spinal cords when the space between the discs gets diverted. Materials used for manufacturing interbody fusion cages are titanium, carbon fiber, or allograft femur. These devices are either cylindrical or square-shaped, and are mostly threaded. These cages can be crammed with autologous bone material in order to promote artificial ankylosis or arthrodesis.

View Report: https://www.transparencymarketresearch.com/interbody-fusion-cage-market.html

Factors, such as, growth in geriatric population and high incidence rate of spinal injuries and sports injuries have boosted the growth of the interbody fusion cage market. Additionally, there has been a rise in demand for surgeries pertaining to interbody fusion cage owing to benefits that permit the surgeon to directly decompress nerves and reconstruct the spine, thereby leading to market growth. Also, rising consumer awareness regarding this treatment in both developed and developing countries is fuelling the market growth. However, restraints, such as, stringent rules and regulations pertaining to the use of these devices, high costs associated with spinal fusion surgeries, and lack of trained professionals are anticipated to hamper the growth of this market during the forecast period. Nevertheless, introduction of novel interbody fusion cages provided with new compatible materials is likely to create more opportunities in the market.

The global interbody fusion cage market can be segmented on the basis of product, surgery type, end-user, and region. On the basis of product, the global interbody fusion cage market can be divided into lumbar, cervical, thoraco-lumbar, and thoracic. Depending on the type of surgery, the market can be classified into lateral, anterior, posterior, and transforaminal. Based on end-user, the interbody fusion cage market can be divided into hospital, clinic, medical center, and others. In terms of geography, the market can be categorized into five regions, viz. North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East and Africa.

Request a Brochure of the Report @ https://www.transparencymarketresearch.com/sample/sample.php?flag=B&rep_id=48498

Among products, the thoraco-lumbar segment commands a major share of the global interbody fusion cage market. The thoraco-lumbar spinal region is the maximum-affected area by diseases and injuries, such as, tumor, disc degenerative disease, trauma, and infectious diseases and requires treatment by spinal interbody fusion cage technique. Thus, this factor is promoting the growth of the interbody fusion cage market.

Based on type of surgery, the anterior surgery segment commanded a major share in 2017. It is easy as well as convenient to implant larger bone cages and grafts, thereby enabling improved initial stability as well as compression of the fusion construct.

On the basis of geography, North America accounts for a leading share of the interbody fusion cage market, in terms of revenue, followed by Europe. The interbody fusion cage market in the emerging countries, such as, China, South Korea, Brazil, and India is expected to grow significantly during the next five years. The market is likely to be dominated by North America and Europe during the forecast period. The prominent market share of North America can be attributed to the well-established health care infrastructure and rise in adoption rate of interbody fusion cage across various health care settings in the region.

The interbody fusion cage market in Asia Pacific market is expected to witness a significant growth due to increase in geriatric population, high prevalence of spinal injuries, investments made by market players in the emerging countries, such as, China and India, and rise in consumer awareness about this treatment in the region. Other regions, such as, Middle East & Africa and Latin America are expected to be the prospective markets in the near future.

Segui in diretta la finale del festival di Sanremo. Chi vincerà l’edizione numero 69?

L’ultimo atto di un festival indimenticabile. Parte la finalissima di Sanremo e L’Eco come sempre vi propone la diretta della serata. Chi vincerà?

Vota qui la tua canzone preferita e guarda i risultati provvisori.

23.30 - Elisa, altra super ospite della serata, anta «Anche fragile» il suo ultimo successo. Poi duetta con Baglioni con brano di Luigi Tenco «Vedrai vedrai». Standing ovation anche per lei.

23 - Ecco la Virginia Raffaele che il pubblico aspettava: elegantissima, propone un medley travolgente in cui presta voce e mimica a Malika Ayane, Patty Pravo, Giusy Ferreri, Fiorella Mannoia e, naturalmente, Ornella Vanoni...«però gratis mai più», conclude, riprendendo il monito dell’artista alla Rai sull’ospitata «aggratis». L’Ariston è in tutto piedi per lei: in prima fila, anche l’amministratore delegato della Rai Fabrizio Salini, il presidente Marcello Foa e la direttrice di Rai1 Teresa De Santis.

#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

22.50 - Come alla fine di ogni esibizione, Maurizio Carucci, frontman degli Ex-Otago, è sceso in platea per abbracciare alla fine della canzone una fortunata della platea.

Ma stasera seduta tra le prime file dell’Ariston c’era la fidanzata Martina. E l’abbraccio si è concluso con un bacio appassionato.

#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

22.31 - È ancora standing ovation per Loredana Bertè all’Ariston. La sua performance esplosiva in Cosa ti aspetti da me è entusiasma il pubblico.

22.17 - Eros Ramazzotti, super ospite della serata, incanta con la sua voce. Prima canta «Vita ce n’è», il suo ultimo singolo. Poi un classicone: «Adesso tu». Prima di salutare, è arrivata anche la star portoricana Luis Fonsi, che con Despacito vanta il numero più alto di streaming e views della storia. Duetto Per le strade una canzone, sempre dall’ultimo disco. «Grazie per la musica di questi anni», lo ha salutato il padrone di casa.

#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

22 - Incursione a sorpresa di Renato Pozzetto e de Lo Stato Sociale, in gara lo scorso anno al festival, all’Ariston. La band e l’attore, davanti all’entrata del teatro, hanno intonato «E la vita, la vita», cavallo di battaglia di Cochi e Renato.

21.56 - Dopo l’omaggio al Quartetto Cetra, stasera l’avanspettacolo si fa spazio sul palco dell’Ariston con Camminando sotto la pioggia. «Vogliamo ricordare Erminio Macario», spiega Baglioni, e poi canta e balla con Virginia Raffaele (stavolta è lei in tailleur pantalone bianco) e con Claudio Bisio. Ma l’ombrello di Bisio non si apre e l’attore finisce sotto la pioggia.

«Gli sta bene», chiosa Baglioni. «Noi siamo del centro, lui è del nord, parla venti volte più veloce di noi. E poi secondo me di Claudio ce n’era già uno che bastava». Virginia. «Stai diventando di nuovo dittatore». Baglioni: «Fosse anche per l’ultima volta, ma sì».

#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

21.37 - Tocca ai Negrita e poi a Ultimo, a dispetto del nome, uno dei favoriti per la vittoria finale. Il suo video ha già un milione di visualizzazioni su Youtube. Lunghissimo applauso del pubblico dell’Ariston tributato a lui e alla sua I tuoi particolari. Il giovane, che l’anno scorso vinse tra le Nuove Proposte, è da tempo il favorito dei bookmaker alla vittoria finale.

#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

21.25 - I primi tre a esibirsi sul palco dell’Ariston sono Daniele Silvestri con Rancore, Anna Tatangelo e Ghemon. La canzone di Ghemon è stata particolarmente apprezzata nei primi giorni anche se in questa esibizione il rapper è stato un po’ tradito dall’emozione.

21.12 - «Nessuno è perfetto», dice Claudio Baglioni citando la celeberrima battuta di A qualcuno piace caldo. «E in effetti non lo sai mai se hai fatto bene o male, se c’è stato troppo spettacolo o troppo concorso. Io vi dico e vi giuro che abbiamo fatto tutto il possibile perché restasse nel solco di quello dell’anno passato».

Per Baglioni, «ha vinto la musica, hanno vinto le parole, le speranze di tanti giovani artisti e di altri meno giovani che confidano in quello che accadrà domani e nel vostro affetto, nella vostra attenzione, considerazione, anche critiche. Spero che questo solco non venga smesso, è nello statuto e nella costituzione del festival della canzone italiana. Spero che rimanga tale - conclude, usando parole che fanno pensare a un passaggio di testimone - fino al prossimo Sanremo e a tutti quelli che arriveranno».

#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

21 - Claudio Baglioni, look total white, apre la serata finale di Sanremo con E adesso la pubblicità, con i ballerini muniti di telecomando e maschere con gli «smile».

Eros Ramazzotti, con Luis Fonsi, ed Elisa sono gli ospiti attesi durante la finalissima. Ramazzotti torna all’Ariston a 35 anni dalla sua vittoria, nella categoria Nuove Proposte, con Terra Promessa. Il festival è stato il trampolino di lancio per il cantautore, che si farà accompagnare, per un momento speciale del suo set, da Luis Fonsi, la star mondiale di Despacito che ha conquistato più streaming e più views nella storia. Insieme duetteranno sulle note di «Per le strade una canzone», brano contenuto nell’album Vita ce n’è, uscito a novembre. Di rigore anche l’esibizione in coppia con Claudio Baglioni su uno dei successi di Eros. Dopo la partecipazione al festival, Ramazzotti tornerà live, con un tour mondiale al via il 17 febbraio da Monaco, che arriverà in Italia il 2 marzo.

          El Gobierno asegura que la exhumación de Franco está en sus «últimos momentos administrativos»      Cache   Translate Page      
El director general para la Memoria Histórica del Ministerio de Justicia, Fernando Martínez López, ha dicho este sábado en París que la exhumación de los restos de Francisco Franco del Valle de los Caídos está en sus "últimos momentos administrativos". "Hoy puedo anunciarles que estamos en los últimos momentos administrativos para que, pronto, el dictador salga de ese Valle de los Caídos. No puede estar allí porque es un mausoleo que no puede ser para un dictador", dijo hoy Martínez durante el inicio de los actos de conmemoración por el 80 aniversario del exilio republicano. El también vicepresidente de la Comisión Interministerial del Exilio español, que participó en un homenaje en el cementerio de Père Lachaise, frente al monumento de los refugiados republicanos que participaron en la liberación de Francia durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial, siguió el acto junto a la alcaldesa de París, Anne Hidalgo, ella misma hija de refugiados. Ante unos 200 descendientes de estos españoles que huyeron de España por la frontera francesa en el invierno de 1939, lo que se conoce como La Retirada, Martínez insistió en que la representación del Gobierno de España "no solo vino a poner flores", sino a reafirmarse en la necesidad de impulsar la reparación de víctimas del franquismo. "Es el compromiso del Gobierno español sacar a los hombres y mujeres que permanecen en las fosas, para poder entregarlos a sus familiares y que puedan darles digna sepultura. No es una cuestión de unos ni de otros, es una cuestión de humanidad, de derechos humanos, de dignidad democrática", defendió. En declaraciones a la prensa, el catedrático de Historia Contemporáneo y exalcalde de la ciudad de Almería, apuntó que España es un país "muy garantista", donde se establecen "todos los plazos posibles para que familiares y otros puedan recurrir y hacer todas las delegaciones posibles". "En este momento sí puedo indicar que se ha terminado el plazo administrativo y depende de cuando el Consejo de Ministros adopte las decisiones. Eso es lo que puedo adelantar", ha dicho Martínez López.
          Global CPGs embrace transformative Loop circular shopping platform      Cache   Translate Page      
A metal container for Häagen-Dazs ice cream keeps contents frozen.
With reusable packaging as its foundation, the ground-breaking Loop shopping platform enables zero waste, unleashes packaging innovation, and enhances consumer convenience.

In late February at the World Economic Forum, in Davos, Switzerland, Tom Szaky, Founder and CEO of TerraCycle, Inc., unveiled what could be one of the most significant and disruptive advances in packaging to date. Along with a number of the world’s largest Consumer Packaged Goods companies and retailers, TerraCycle has created Loop™, a first-of-its-kind shopping platform that will enable consumers to responsibly consume products in customized, brand-specific, durable packaging that is collected, cleaned, refilled, and reused.

The platform will launch in France and in the northeastern U.S. this spring as a pilot, offering more than 300 products in reusable packaging from such heavy-hitters as Procter & Gamble, Nestlé, Unilever, PepsiCo, Mondelēz International, and Danone, to name a few, as well as from smaller companies. The products will be available through the Loop e-commerce site as well as through retail partners’ e-commerce sites and brick-and-mortar locations.

The Loop platform is designed to transform the relationship between consumers and packaging, with the consumer now borrowing the package from the brand owner, much like the milkman model. Through its circular system, Loop offers the convenience of single-use packaging while at the same time removing the responsibility from the consumer of disposing the empty packaging. It gets to the root of packaging waste, rather than trying to manage waste through recycling and other methods after it’s been created.

Loop is also proving to have an extraordinary effect on package design. “It’s not just about eliminating waste; it’s about enabling the future,” says Szaky. “What brands have really started to see is that this is a platform through which they can commercialize innovation in packaging that was never possible in a disposable package—it was not even conceivable.”

Metal containers for Häagen-Dazs ice cream that keep contents cold, toothbrushes with removable, replaceable heads from Oral B, and a stainless-steel Clorox package that keeps wipes wetter longer are just some of the innovations created for Loop. Enhancing the consumer experience, reimagined packaging for products such as Pantene, Seventh Generation, and Crest transform the products into premium, luxury items.

A vision for a world without waste

For 15 years, recycling company TerraCycle has promoted and advanced the idea of a world without waste. It offers a range of free programs for the collection and recycling of hard-to-recycle materials, creating new products from the waste. Its most recent project was to establish the world’s largest supply chain for collecting and recycling ocean plastics, which are used by P&G for its Head & Shoulders haircare product bottles and its Fairy dish soap containers, as well as for packaging for Unilever’s prestige REN Clean Skincare line.

While these efforts are critically important, Szaky says they are not enough to reach the goal of a world without waste. Hence, TerraCycle created Loop—a circular economy shopping platform whose time has come. “It was far less difficult than I thought it would be to get CPGs and retailers to invest in the platform,” he shares. “It’s like the world is ready for it.”

Szaky says he believes there were three factors that influenced the decision by CPGs to participate, even though it involved a complicated and expensive commitment. First was their trust in TerraCycle, built through longstanding relationships. “They knew we were not just a ‘fly-by-night’ operation,” he says.

Second was the packaging crisis brought on by the issue of ocean plastics—a topic that didn’t exist three or four years ago. “People always cared about waste, but it’s more of a crisis now,” Szaky says. “And companies at their board levels are declaring it as a crisis in a way that’s never been done. In addition, there’s also a lot of legislation in the pipeline around anti-disposability [of packaging].”

The third factor, as mentioned earlier, was brand owners’ realization of the functional and aesthetic innovation opportunities afforded by reusable packaging. “What packaging people love about this is that now it’s not a race to the bottom on a price per unit, which it sort of was before. It was always how to make the pack cheaper,” says Szaky. “With Loop, cost is not the primary question. The primary question is, how durable is it?”

Design for reuse

To enter Loop as a manufacturer, the first “rule,” Szaky explains, is that you must move to a reusable package—“that’s simply not negotiable,” he adds.

Each CPG partner is responsible for their own package design, aided by guidelines and best practices developed by TerraCycle and logistics partner UPS. Through testing procedures conducted at its Package Design and Test Lab in Addison, IL, UPS identified solutions to issues related to shipping primary packaging via e-commerce. TerraCycle enumerates some of these suggestions in a design brief it provides brand owner partners when they sign on to Loop.

What TerraCycle looks for in a finished package design is durability, cleanability, and a positive Life Cycle Analysis. “Those are the three things we watch for,” says Szaky. “But then everyone gets to do everything they could ever want to in a pack. You get a far greater range of design choices, because you’re not restricted to a tiny little price. So, a $1 package with 10 uses is 10 cents per use, but a $5 package with 100 uses is 5 cents per use. That’s actually pretty neat in the sense of being able to change the relationship with the economics of packaging.”

The goal for a Loop package is to be able to withstand 100-plus uses, which is not such a stretch if you consider how many times a consumer might refill a reusable water bottle. “Here’s the point,” says Szaky, “once you get to 100 uses, it’s actually not that hard to get into the thousands. It’s hard to know, because we haven’t been able to prove 10,000 uses. For now, we’re aiming for 100 or more uses for every container.”

The three most common types of materials being used for Loop packaging are, in order, stainless steel and aluminum, glass, and engineered plastics such as polycarbonate. So far, materials such as flexibles, disposable plastics, fibers, or leathers have not shown up in any Loop packaging.

Given that the aim of Loop is zero waste, the tote in which products are delivered and empty containers are returned is also reusable.

Consumer convenience

Another factor that makes Loop so timely is consumers’ growing acceptance and use of e-commerce for CPG products. Loop will have its own e-commerce sites—Loopstore.com in the U.S. and maboutiquelook.fr in France—and Loop products will also be available on some CPG and retail partner websites.

Retail partners such as Carrefour in France, Tesco in the U.K., and others will also be selling Loop products in their physical stores. In fact, Carrefour is so enthusiastic about the system it has put many of its private-label products into reusable packages.

In the case of products ordered through e-commerce, the “loop” begins when a consumer places an order online. Their products are then delivered to their doorstep in the reusable Loop tote. When they are done with a product, the consumer places the empty package in one of the totes and alerts Loop to pick it up. (Both products ordered through Loop as well as through its partners’ sites are collected by Loop.) For staple products the consumer wants replenished immediately, the pickup triggers a new shipment.

Consumers who purchase Loop products at a brick-and-mortar store can bring their empties directly back to the store.

The beauty of the program at end of use is that consumers don’t have to clean or sort the empties. “It’s a completely disposable experience,” says Szaky. Sorting and cleaning is done by TerraCycle, which not only has the technology for straightforward cleaning jobs (e.g., cleaning rigid containers), but is also developing a range of technologies to handle more complex packaging components such as trigger sprayers and pumps. The company plans to have a warehousing and cleaning facility in every region in which Loop products are sold.

With Loop, zero waste also means zero product waste. So when TerraCycle receives the containers for cleaning, it evaluates the leftover or used product to see if it can be recovered or recycled. Products are categorized as non-recoverable, as in the case of orange juice or window cleaner, or recoverable. “For recovery, there are two types of products,” Szaky explains. “The first is a product you can recover, but it would be unreasonable to reuse it, such as a razor blade or a toothbrush, which we then recycle. The other is a product, such as the casing of a pen, that it’s not unreasonable to reuse.”

The final stage of the loop is the return of empty, clean packages to brand owners for refilling. The loop is closed when consumers receive new products.

To ensure consumers return the empty packaging and the Loop totes, they pay a deposit for the items when they order the products. “This is key, since these are expensive packages,” says Szaky. “They are never owned by the consumer; the consumer borrows them. And, like anything you borrow, you put a deposit around it.”

When the consumer returns the package, they receive 100% of the deposit back—no matter the shape in which they return it. TerraCycle’s view is that the durability of the package is not the consumer’s responsibility; it’s the responsibility of those who made it.

Will Loop succeed?

There are many reasons Loop should succeed—and in a big way. Among them, the furor over disposable, single-use packaging, the ease of e-commerce, the enhanced consumer experience allowed through higher-quality packaging, and Loop’s appeal to CPGs that are pushing to meet their own aggressive sustainable packaging goals. But will it take off?

Szaky says signs are good. As more of the world’s largest CPGs join the platform, momentum is building, spurring others to join or be left behind. In just one week, he shares, SC Johnson with its Method and Ecover brands, global snacking company Pladis, and Reckitt Benckiser signed on. “And it wasn’t even a unique week,” he says.

Another sign boding well for Loop is the response it has received from the 25 families in New York and the 25 in Paris that have already trialed the platform. Szaky says TerraCycle learned from these trials that once consumers start receiving their products in reusable packaging, they start getting “allergic” to disposability. “The question is, what is the tipping point?” he questions. “Do 20 percent of the products in your life have to be durable for you to say, ‘Forget disposability, I’m done.’”

Compared with other strategies launched to reduce or eliminate packaging waste, such as “package-free” stores and self-dispensing systems, Loop celebrates packaging, enhancing its many functions, such as beauty, product protection, and convenience.

“Packaging isn’t evil,” declares Szaky. “Neither is the idea of plastic or metal or paper. The evil, I think, is spending a lot of effort creating something awesome and then using it once and throwing it away.”

DISCOURS DU PAPE FRANÇOIS
À LA SOCIÉTÉ DES MISSIONNAIRES D'AFRIQUE ET
À LA CONGRÉGATION DES SŒURS MISSIONNAIRES DE NOTRE DAME D'AFRIQUE

Salle Clémentine
Vendredi 8 février 2019

[Multimédia]


Cher frères et sœurs,

c’est avec une grande joie que je vous accueille dans le cadre de la célébration du 150ème anniversaire de la fondation de la Société des Missionnaires d’Afrique et de la Congrégation des Sœurs Missionnaires de Notre Dame d’Afrique. En remerciant vos Supérieurs généraux pour les paroles qu’ils m’ont adressées, je veux vous exprimer mon cordial salut et ma proximité spirituelle, ainsi qu’à travers vous, à tous les membres de vos Instituts, présents en Afrique et dans d’autres régions du monde. Merci à vous, pour le service de la mission de l’Eglise, vécu avec passion et générosité, dans la fidélité aux intuitions évangéliques de votre fondateur commun, le Cardinal Lavigerie.

Au cours des trois dernières années, vous vous êtes préparés à célébrer ce jubilé. Comme membres de la grande "famille Lavigerie", vous êtes revenus à vos racines, vous avez regardé votre histoire avec reconnaissance, pour vous donner les moyens de vivre votre engagement présent avec une passion renouvelée de l’Évangile, et pour être des semeurs d’espérance. Avec vous, je rends grâce à Dieu, non seulement pour les dons qu’il a faits à son Église à travers vos Instituts, mais aussi et surtout, pour la fidélité de son amour que vous célébrez avec ce jubilé. Que cette année jubilaire fortifie en vous l’assurance que « Dieu est fidèle, lui qui vous a appelés à vivre en communion avec son Fils, Jésus-Christ notre Seigneur » (1Co 1,9). Que votre consécration, votre ministère puissent ainsi manifester concrètement, dans votre vie fraternelle et dans vos différents engagements, la fidélité de l’amour de Dieu et sa proximité, pour semer l’espérance dans le cœur de ceux qui sont blessés, éprouvés, découragés, et qui se sentent si souvent abandonnés.

Chers amis, vous le savez : quand Mgr Lavigerie, alors archevêque d’Alger, a été conduit par l’Esprit à fonder la Société des Missionnaires d’Afrique, puis la Congrégation des Sœurs Missionnaires, il avait dans le cœur la passion de l’Evangile et le désir qu’il soit annoncé à tous, en se faisant "tout à tous" (cf. 1Co 9,22). Pour cette raison, vos racines sont marquées par la Mission ad extra ; c’est dans votre ADN. Ainsi, à la suite de votre fondateur, votre préoccupation première, votre sainte inquiétude, « c’est que tant de nos frères vivent sans la force, la lumière et la consolation de l’amitié de Jésus-Christ, sans une communauté de foi qui les accueille, sans un horizon de sens et de vie » (Exhortation apostolique Evangelii gaudium, n.49). Mais, à la lumière du chemin jusqu'à maintenant parcouru depuis votre fondation, vous savez que l’annonce de l’Évangile n’est pas synonyme de prosélytisme ; elle est cette dynamique qui conduit à se faire proche des autres, pour partager avec eux le don reçu, la rencontre d’amour qui a changé votre vie et qui vous a conduits à choisir de consacrer votre vie au Seigneur Jésus, Evangile pour la vie et le salut du monde. C’est toujours avec lui, par lui et en lui que se vit la mission. Alors, je vous encourage à garder votre regard fixé sur Jésus-Christ, pour ne jamais oublier que le véritable missionnaire est d’abord un disciple. Ayez à cœur de cultiver ce lien particulier qui vous unit au Seigneur, par l’écoute de sa Parole, la célébration des Sacrements et le service du frère, pour que vos paroles et vos actes manifestent sa présence, son amour miséricordieux, sa compassion à ceux auprès de qui l’Esprit vous envoie et vous conduit. Que la célébration de votre jubilé vous aide ainsi à devenir des "nomades pour l’Évangile", des hommes et des femmes qui n’ont pas peur d’aller dans les déserts de ce monde et de chercher ensemble les moyens de conduire leurs frères humains jusqu’à cette oasis qu’est le Seigneur, pour que l’eau vive de son amour apaise toutes leurs soifs.

Que cette année jubilaire contribue aussi à développer les liens fraternels entre vous, parce que l’annonce de l’Évangile ne peut se vivre qu’au prix d’une véritable communion missionnaire. Avec la force de l’Esprit Saint, soyez les témoins de cette espérance qui ne déçoit pas (Cf. Rm 5,5), malgré les difficultés. Dans la fidélité à vos racines, n’ayez pas peur de vous risquer sur les chemins de la mission, pour témoigner que « Dieu est toujours une nouveauté, qui nous pousse à partir sans relâche et à nous déplacer pour aller au-delà de ce qui est connu, vers les périphéries et les frontières » (Exhortation apostolique Gaudete et exsultate, n.135). Que l’Esprit Saint fasse de vous des constructeurs de ponts entre les hommes. Là où le Seigneur vous a envoyés, contribuez à faire grandir une culture de la rencontre ; continuez à être les serviteurs d’un dialogue qui, tout en respectant les différences, sait s’enrichir de la différence des autres. Et je vous remercie en particulier pour le travail que vous avez déjà accompli au service du dialogue avec l’Islam, avec nos sœurs et nos frères musulmans. Par le style et la simplicité de votre mode de vie, vous manifestez aussi la nécessité de prendre soin de notre maison commune, la terre. Enfin, dans le sillage du Cardinal Lavigerie, soyez des semeurs d’espérance, en luttant contre toutes les formes actuelles d’esclavage. Cherchez toujours à vous faire proches des petits et des pauvres, de celles et ceux qui attendent, aux périphéries de nos sociétés, d’être reconnus dans leur dignité, d’être accueillis, protégés, relevés, accompagnés, promus et intégrés.

Avec cette espérance, en vous confiant au Seigneur, par l’intercession de la Vierge Marie, Notre Dame d’Afrique, je vous donne la Bénédiction apostolique, ainsi qu’à tous les membres de vos communautés, et j’appelle les bénédictions de Dieu sur celles et ceux dont vous partagez la vie, là où le Seigneur vous a envoyés. Et, s’il vous plaît, n’oubliez pas de prier pour moi. Merci.

Reporter’s Diary from Venezuela.

Georgy Zotov (author of AIF weekly)

This is the personal view of the correspondent on today’s life of Caracas.

Translated by Scott

Day one...

Our Air France flight was grounded in Paris for 5 hours; no one wants to land in Venezuela in the middle of the night, due to the “dangerous criminal situation.” The airliner is half empty, the passengers, judging by nervous conversations, are only Venezuelans. A taxi driver, while leaving the airport, locks the doors, and sweetly warns that after dark, bandits scatter spikes on the roads and rob the stranded cars. “Oh, don’t worry, Amigo, I have an old car. They are not interested in old, cars.” That’s where you understand why Caracas is ranked first in the ranking of the most dangerous cities in the world. It’s too late for supper, but I at least want to exchange my US dollars for Venezuelan bolivars. I ask my cab driver. He violently shakes his head:

“No, no, no. I do not mess with such things, it’s illegal!”

“Whatever,” I laugh at him.

“Tomorrow, someone will take the dollars, maybe even with my hands torn off.” I was wrong…

The following morning, no one at the hotel wants to look at my dollars.

The hotel employee tells me to go to one of the official “exchange stores” but honestly adds: “only Americans, or complete jerks go there.”

In Venezuela, the official dollar exchange rate is 200 bolivars, and the “black market” exchange rate is 2,715. And if you exchange your currency in a bank, then according to this calculation, a bottle of ordinary water will cost 330 rubles, and a modest lunch in an inexpensive cafe—7,000 rubles per person. Judging by the stories on the Internet, in Venezuelan people should simply kill each other for dollars, but this is not the case.

There is also other things different from perception. On western news, it is shown that demonstrators fight with police daily, tens killed, hundreds wounded, the sea of blood. But in Caracas, all is quiet. In an afternoon, people are sitting in cafes and idly sipping rum with ice, while maintenance crews sweep the streets. It turns out that the world ‘s leading TV new sources (including CNN and the BBC) show some fantasy film about Venezuela. “Demonstrations?” yawns Alejandro, a street vendor selling corn. “Well, Saturday there will be one, sort of. On one end of the city will be a rally of opposition supporters, and on the other, Maduro supporters. The police keep them separate to prevent fights.”

Amazing.

You browse the Internet, you turn on the TV, and you see the revolution, the people dying on streets to overthrow the “evil dictator Maduro.” And you come here, and nobody cares.

Then it got even better. Never in my life have I had so many adventures while trying to exchange one currency for another. The country has a problem with cash money, long queues waiting for the ATM, and even the street dealers of “currency” have no “efectivo,” as they call cash. I wander inside a jewelry store and ask if they want some “green.” The answer is “No.” Everyone acts like law-abiding citizens. I am told that police recently started arresting people for private exchange, that’s why people don’t want to associate. One owner of the jewelry store almost agrees.

“What do you have? Dollars? No, I won’t take that.”

“Why now?”

“I take only the Euros …dollar, man, is the currency of the aggressor, they try to tell us how to live!”

Damn it! I have money in my pocket, and I can’t even buy lunch! Finally, a certain woman, nursing a baby in a workplace, very reluctantly agrees to exchange 2,200 bolivars for a “buck.” I want to curse her out, but I have to live somehow. Bolivars seem like a beautiful, unattainable currency, which hides all the benefits of the world, that’s why they are so hard to get. I’m nodding in agreement. The woman calls somewhere, and asks to wait. After 15 minutes she tells me that “there is a problem.” Of course, money is not to be found. Her man couldn’t withdraw them from the ATM, everywhere the ATMs are on a strict daily rate.

“President Maduro is fighting for the strengthening of the national currency,” explained the nursing mother. “We all use our cards to pay for everything.”

I don’t know how it works, but yesterday an exchange rate was 3,200 bolívars for 1 dollar, and today the “bucks” fell to 2,700. I have started to realize that in the very next few days I’ll starve to death with dollars in my pocket. A unique fate, perhaps, that has never happen in history.

In the next kiosk cash for gold place I am offered a plastic debit card loaded with local money, and then I would try my luck withdrawing bills from neighboring ATMs. “Or, maybe not, if you’re not lucky.” Well, of course. By the way, an attempt to buy a SIM card for the phone also fails. They don’t sell them to foreigners, you need a Venezuelan ID card. Yes, and I have nothing to pay for it. The feeling is that the dollar is a gift that no one wants. Sadly, I walk by stores. People come out of there with packages of eggs, bread, packs of butter. The range is not like in Moscow, of course, but again, if you believe the news on TV, Venezuela is suffering from a terrible famine, supermarkets are empty, and people are fighting each other for food. Nothing like that. There are queues, but not kilometers long. In general, television stations in the United States and Europe (and ours too) created their own Venezuela, drawn like a terrible cartoon. I walk into a cafe at random.

“Will you accept dollars for lunch?” I ask hopelessly.

“Yes, at the rate of “black market” they whispered to me.

“But the change will also be in dollars... sorry, no bolivars at all...we’ve been hunting for them ourselves for weeks.”

My first day in Venezuela is over. How unusual. I’ve been here for 24 hours, and I’ve not held a Bolivian bill in my hand. Oh, but there will be more...

Day two...

60 liters of gasoline here cost five cents, and a basket of basic food products - 50 rubles (about 90 cents).

“The gas station,” my driver reaches into his purse and takes out a banknote of 2 Bolivar. The exchange rate of the Venezuelan currency changes every day, and today it is 2,580 bolivars per one dollar. In Russian money, that is 10 cents. “We must now fill a full tank,” says the taxi driver. 60 liters of gasoline cost 1 bolívar, but we give the 2 bolivars bill, because there is no 1 bolivar bill.  I can’t believe that is a full tank of fuel costs FIVE CENTS?

“And how much can you even fill at this price?”

“Once a day for every citizen. And it’s enough for me.”

All the way to the center city, the driver scolds President Maduro, and tells me how much he loves America, and how it will be good when the “guy with mustache” is finally overthrow by the Americans.

I start to think that I don’t feel sorry for Maduro at all. He really corrupted en entire country with such generous handouts. And they willingly take, but no one says “thank you,” just that they want more and more.

On the street there is a long line into a “social supermarket,” a place you can buy 400 types of goods at the solid low prices. These shops were established by the late President Hugo Chavez “to fight inflation and protect the poor.” The stores are funded by the Venezuelan government. The buyer comes with a passport, gets a number, and waits in line until they are allowed to enter and buy a certain set of products. The selection isn’t very impressive, only the essentials: chicken, bananas, pineapples, sausages, milk. A box of these food items costs of equivalent of 50 rubles. CNN and the BBC show videos of Venezuelans wrapped in rolls of toilet paper and sadly wandering across the border with Colombia. The toilet paper is found in absolutely every store, and without any problems. I am once again simply amazed: Western TV news is something from Hollywood, they are not reporting but making fantasy blockbusters. On the BBC website I read that hungry Venezuelan children after school go to take a look at the street vendors cooking meat. I’ve been all over the town. Restaurants, cafes, eateries, during the lunch hour are crowded, and people look well-dressed. The mass hunger, the Western media paints for us, doesn’t exist in reality.

I take a few pictures inside the supermarket, and I am immediately approached by the workers or “Maduro followers.”

“It’s forbidden to take pictures here.”

“Is this a military facility?”

“Leave or we’ll call the police.”

“Listen, everywhere on TV they tell us that there is hunger in Venezuela. I want to prove that the reality is different.”

“We are not interested, we just work here: leave immediately!”

I started to understand perfectly well why Nicolas Maduro lost the information war. Hugo Chavez was often praised even in private conversations, but even Chavez supporters find little positive to say about Maduro.  When people protested against Hugo’s endless nominations as the head of state, he used to meet them with the open arms, smiling and saying : “Guys, what’s the problem? I’m your President, I love you, let’s sit down and talk!” Maduro doesn’t have this image of being one of the guys. He is not able to communicate with the public, and his assistants, like the employees of the social store, can only push and ban and threaten with the police.

On the streets, provincial farmers sell fruits and vegetables: mango, tomatoes, cucumbers. All about the same price of 25 rubles per kilogram. Here, a dozen eggs from street vendors is 4,800 bolivars or about 130 rubles, and that is not cheap. During the peak of oil prices, when a barrel of oil was sold for $150, Venezuela lived on the principle of a rich fool. To develop domestic production? No, what is that nonsense?  We can buy every triviality abroad. Even the managers of the oil production weren’t local, they hired specialists from Europe, and paid them a lot of money. Food imports into the country reached 95 percent. And now the situation is not too different. When I order my meal in a cafe (incidentally, still paying in dollars, all attempts to change dollars to bolivars failed), I get excellent pork. “Where is it from?” “From Colombia.” “And chicken?” “From Brazil, that’s why it’s so expensive.” Even flour for bread comes from neighboring Guyana. Chavez and his successor Maduro wanted to be “people’s presidents,” handing out money left and right. But then oil prices collapsed, food shortages began, and people rebelled. People demand as before: cheap food in supermarkets, gasoline for nothing, and they don’t want to hear anything more or less.

“Chavez was a great guy!” says a fan of the former president, 75-year-old Raul Romero, dressed in a red “chavist” shirt.

 “Maduro is nothing like him! There is speculators on the streets, he does nothing. In his time, Chavez arrested the dealers raising food  prices, closed their shops, confiscated land from landowners, and gave it to the people. We need a firm hand, a real dictatorship!”

In the TV world, Maduro is portrayed as a dictator and executioner, although in Venezuela, he is openly scolded for being meek; they draw cartoon of him, and insult him as much as they can. But who cares about the truth? Much more colorful to show the suffering for the toilet paper.

Day three...

“I got robbed by a COP for my phone. I’m talking on the cell phone outside, he walks over to me, pokes in my side with his gun. “Give me your mobile.” I don’t understand immediately, and automatically continue the conversation. He cocks his gun, and says, “Kill.” I give him my phone. It’s still good, I love being robbed by cops. They are not bandits from the “Barrios,” the poor neighborhoods in the mountains, who can shoot you first and then rummage your corpse’s pockets. I’m lucky, I’ve lived in Venezuela for 27 years and this was the first time I was “hop-stopped.” A lot of people get robbed every year.

I am talking to Mikhail, a citizen of Russia living in Venezuela since the beginning of the nineties. He helps me move around Caracas and instructs me on how to visit the local slums. “You don’t have protection? Oh, who would doubt that. Then leave your watch, phone, and camera at the hotel. Take some money for a taxi, you also have to have some cash in case you get ambushed, otherwise they might get offended and kill you. Sometimes, people get shot in an arm and a leg, that survivable.” After such a nice story, I still go to the “Barrios.” It is there that the supporters of President Nicolas Maduro mainly live. According to CNN and BBC, impoverished people in Venezuela are revolting against the government. Nothing can be further from the truth; it’s a wealthy middle class that goes to demonstrate. Maduro is applauded in poor neighborhoods, because the President gives their residents free food sets enough for a month and gives free (!) apartments. Formally, they belong to the state, but people live in them for generations.

“I will cut a throat for the President,” a heavily-tattooed man smiles menacingly, and introduces himself as Emilio.

“Who else would give me food and a ‘roof ‘ for free? He is our father and benefactor.”

Maduro deliberately does not touch such people, which is why crime in Caracas gushes over the edge. I am advised not to stop on the street to look at anything, but just to keep going, otherwise bandits will have time to look closely at me. That’s why they have constant robberies on the streets, plus the police and the national guard can easily take away your favorite things. No one can be happy about all these. “I love Russians,” told me the businessman Carlos while conversing over coffee near the Plaza de Bolivar.

But you’d better send Maduro economic advisers. Teach him a lesson! He doesn’t know anything about economy. He has one recipe for everything, to give more money to the poor, more free apartments, free food, free gasoline, to build a full communism here. But with this, sorry, any state would collapse.”

The opposition rally in the Western part of Caracas is huge, at least 100 thousand people gathered. The protesters are friendly to me, Russia here is respected. It is not considered an enemy. Zero aggression at all… and then I  wonder about what I see on CNN, videos of the opposition being rolled into a pancake by tanks. The police keep the neutrality, it disappears from the streets, to not give a cause to provocateurs. People are happily waving flying in the sky military helicopter. Many-in t-shirts with the American flag, a man passes by, holding a hand-written poster with the altered slogan of Donald Trump -“Make Venezuela great again.”

“Do you love the U.S.?”

“Yes, adore it!”

“I remember you already had a pro-American President in 1993, Carlos Andrés Pérez. He sharply raised the price of gasoline, 80% of the goods were imported, he drove the republic into billions of IMF debts. People went to demonstrations, and Pérez drowned them in blood, killing 2,000 people…then he fled to America.”

The man freezes, with his mouth open. Finally, he gets the gift of speech back.

“I hope this time the pro-American President will be different.”

“Are you sure?”

“Sorry, I have nothing to say.”

Asking the girl from the opposition how she feels about the US:

“The US is our neighbor, let them change the power here.”

“In countries where the US changed power like Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan, hundreds of thousands people were killed. Are you ready for this?”

Again, she pauses and sighs.

“No, no, no. We are not Africa or Asia. All will go peacefully. Venezuelans will not kill each other.”

Where the opinions splits is the question of whether the free gasoline and free food packages will remain with an American-instilled government. Many are sincerely sure that the “freebies” will remain under a new president. How else? The minority that recognizes that state gifts will be canceled say that they at least “we will be free.” As I said, the protesters are mostly well-dressed, well-off people. By the way, the leader of the opposition, Juan Guido, also has no real economic program promising to “quadruple the oil production.” No one thinks that after that price will fall four times. In short, I get a feeling that neither the President, nor the opposition, know anything about the economy in Venezuela.

The demonstrations in support of Maduro take place at the other end of the city, to prevent the opponents from fighting.

“You Americans are insolent!” screamed an old woman in a red t-shirt rushing towards me.

“Bastards! You should be hanged on a first tree! Cheers to socialism!”

“I’m Russian, grandma.”

The old lady recoils.

“Sorry, please.”

“Don’t get that upset, senora.”

Many people gathered here are joyful, dancing and singing.

A soldier stands in front of me and doesn’t allow me to take any pictures. Not just me, but also other passers-by.

“You can’t take pictures here.”

“Says who?”

“President Maduro.”

No, Maduro is definitely doing everything he can to be disliked. Those gathering here are poor, blue-collared workers and farmers from the suburbs. I am interested , honestly, were you brought here on the busses? “Yes, he did!” says one grandfather, proudly displaying a portrait of Che Guevara.

“But I would walk here for Maduro! It’s a lie that we were paid to be here.”

Other people applaud him happily. I shake hands. “Russians are welcome! Venezuela loves you, you’re home.”

The day of rallies is over. The maintenance crews came to the sidewalk, strewn with plastic bottles, crumpled packs of cigarettes, and other debris left after by a cloud. At the entrance of an old house, old people drink coffee.

“They say that today some general has defected to the side of the opposition,” says one of them.

“Some significant person.”

“What’s this guy’s name?”

“Who knows?”

Venezuela is split in half. And the situation there may change at any moment.

review:
Tomie dePaola's version of this classic tale differs substantially from the one written by Barbara Cooney. One big change, among many, is that the action is all set in Italy, whereas Barbara Cooney's story (and virtually all others, if my understanding is correct) takes place in France.

Tomie dePaola brings excellent sensitivity to this heartwarming and heartbreaking fable about a virile young Juggler named Giovanni who ascends to be the unquestionably finest artisan in his chosen skill, and remains in that prime position for many years. As time inevitably catches up to him, Giovanni's marvelous skills of physical wizardry begin to fade like the luster of a beautiful flower, until the large crowds that had eagerly flocked to see his performances gradually disperse, and one day he bungles even the fantastic seven-ball finale that had been his renown when he was at his peak. Giovanni, an old man now, must resign himself to live in ruined poverty, until the day that he finds a beautiful church filled with people giving their all to the statue of the virgin Mary and the sober-looking boychild statue on her lap. For a brief, magical moment, Giovanni is able to recapture the lost verve of his youth to muster a final performance for the ages that has moved readers for hundreds of years.

This is a very well told story. I would give it at least two stars, perhaps two and a half.

          Imputada la mujer con problemas psicológicos que incendió edificio en París - El Nuevo Diario      Cache   Translate Page      

La mujer sospechosa de haber provocado el incendio en un edificio al oeste de París esta semana, en el que murieron diez personas y otras 96 resultaron heridas, ha sido imputada este sábado y puesta bajo custodia policial.

La detenida, de unos 40 años, fue presentada este viernes ante el juez de instrucción, que la imputó hoy en el ámbito de la investigación por destrucción mediante incendio con la intención de crear un peligro y por el resultado mortífero del mismo, según fuentes de la Fiscalía citadas por la cadena "BFM TV".

 Mujer sospechosa de ocasionar incendio en París acababa de salir de un psiquiátrico

Fue detenida en los alrededores del edificio con signos de embriaguez y tratando de prender fuego a un vehículo y a varias papeleras durante la madrugada del martes, mientras los bomberos aún trataban de controlar el siniestro.

El fiscal de París, Rémy Heitz, informó este miércoles que entre 2009 y 2019 había estado internada 13 veces en el hospital psiquiátrico Saint Anne de la capital francesa, y que su último ingreso tuvo lugar del 18 al 30 de enero.

En el inmueble era conocida por sus problemas con el alcohol y su inestabilidad psíquica. De hecho, los testigos aseguraron que la noche del incendio había puesto la música alta, lo que motivó a otro vecino a quejarse por el ruido.

Según los vecinos, hubo gritos e intercambio de insultos; la vecina comenzó a lanzar objetos por la ventana y amenazó con provocar un incendio. La mujer, identificada como Essie B., niega las acusaciones.

EU Won't Block Controversial Nord Stream 2 Pipeline

Fri, 02/08/2019 - 08:19

Update: Following reports that France would effectively kill the controversial Nord Stream 2 pipeline, EU officials including German Chancellor Angela Merkel affirmed on Friday that an agreement has been reached which will allow construction of the pipeline to move forward - handing a major victory to Germany and Russia (and a stunning defeat for President Trump).

At a meeting in Brussels on Friday, EU diplomats advanced a draft gas-market law, initially proposed in late 2017, while greatly cutting back a provision that would have effectively blocked the pipeline.

The deal will allow negotiations with the European Parliament on a final version of the legislation to begin. Both sides are aiming for an official agreement as soon as next week, and no later than the end of May.

* * *

As The European Union and the US struggle to block the controversial international pipeline project Nord Stream 2, a 760-mile pipeline that would allow Russia to export natural gas directly to Germany - depriving Ukraine of badly needed gas transit fees along the current route for Russian supplies - France on Friday officially announced its opposition to the project, revealing that it would vote with a bloc of EU nations seeking to torpedo the project.

Earlier reports suggested that the opposition in Paris is rooted in the fear that the pipeline would confer too much "strategic power" on Moscow, potentially complicating its relationship with Brussels. Reuters has previously reported that Paris's vote against the project could rob Germany of the blocking minority it needs to move the project forward.

But later on Friday, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said a deal had been reached on Nord Stream 2.

          6 times Macron gave other leaders advice, while boasting an approval rating of… under 30%      Cache   Translate Page      
French President Emmanuel Macron is not shy about dishing out advice to his international counterparts but, with an approval rating at home hovering in the late 20s, is he really the person to be doling out instructions to others?

No matter the international crisis, Macron has been there to impart his wisdom, giving guidance and schooling to other world leaders on their domestic problems. When it comes to criticisms directed at him, however, it appears Macron is less receptive.

This week, after French anti-government Yellow Vest protesters met with top Italian officials who criticized his leadership (admittedly in undiplomatic terms), Macron instantly recalled France’s ambassador from Rome, the critiques having gotten under his skin.

Here’s a look at six times Macron was the one dispensing unsolicited advice.

1. Venezuela’s Maduro is ‘illegitimate’

Macron has been quick to denounce Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro as “illegitimate” and to throw his support behind opposition leader Juan Guaido.

As we’ve seen, though, expressions of doubt about his own legitimacy are shot down by Macron’s government as “outrageous” – despite the French president commanding a domestic approval rating of around 30 percent. In fact, his approval rating dipped as low as 18 percent in early December.

2. Lectures on ‘human rights’ in Egypt

On a recent visit to Cairo, Macron warned his Egyptian counterpart Abdel Fattah el-Sisi to do more to protect “human rights” and “individual dignity.” Meanwhile, back in France, anti-government protesters were being violently beaten on the streets, in scenes which Macron surely would have condemned had they taken place anywhere else.

It looks as though his lecture on human rights was all talk, anyway, considering that France still serves as Egypts top supplier of military and security equipment.

3. Wading into Japanese legal matters

Macron also chided Japan for the “too long and too hard” detention of Carlos Ghosn, the former Nissan chairman and French citizen who was detained there in November for allegedly underreporting his income and transferring personal losses to the company. If the tables were turned, it’s likely Macron would regard similar comments about decisions of the French justice system as foreign meddling.

Macron also confidently suggested a replacement for Ghosn in comments that irked Japan’s Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga, who told reporters that governments shouldn’t be getting involved.

4. ‘Timely’ decision to mark Armenian Genocide

In a move that angered Turkey, Macron on Wednesday declared April 24 a day for the commemoration in France of the Armenian genocide, saying that France was a country that “knows how to look history in the face.” While the genocide commemoration is not shocking in itself, given that many countries, including Russia, recognize the Armenian Genocide (which Turkey disputes), Ankara accused Macron of exploiting the issue for political gain.

Macron happened to be “afflicted by political problems in his own country and is trying to save the day by turning historical events into a political matter,” Turkish Presidential Spokesman Ibrahim Kalın noted.

5. Chastising Trump over Syria withdrawal

Macron slammed US President Donald Trump’s decision in December to withdraw troops from Syria, saying he “very deeply” regretted Trump’s decision. Macron said that, as allies, France and the US should “fight shoulder to shoulder” and that “an ally should be dependable.” Trump has not been reluctant to criticize Macron either, however, even tweeting about the French president’s dismally low approval rating.

6. ‘Arrogant’ advice fest in Africa

Macron also faced major criticism on a trip to Africa last year, during which he advised Algeria to stop focusing on its colonial past and mocked Burkina Faso’s president over the country’s energy problems – comments which his former presidential rival criticized as “arrogant” and “bordering on racism.”

On the same trip, Macron told a student that she should “applaud” French soldiers, said the continent’s problems were “civilizational”  – and told African women that they have too many children.

          Yellow Vest drama or Nord Stream spat: Why did Macron suddenly abandon Merkel in Munich?      Cache   Translate Page      
Emmanuel Macron has abruptly canceled his trip to the Munich Security Conference, with the Élysée saying he is focused on domestic issues amidst the ongoing Yellow Vest protests – but German media is seeing Russia in all this.

The cancellation comes as the French president was accused of attempting to torpedo the Nord Stream 2 natural gas pipeline, which is funded by Russian energy giant Gazprom and supported by Germany – as well as Belgium, Austria, Greece and Cyprus, and the Netherlands.

Paris, worried about European dependence on Russian energy, said on Thursday –and ahead of a key EU vote– that it wants the bloc’s Third Energy Package rules to be applied to the Nord Stream deal. Those rules forbid the same company from generating, transmitting and selling energy at the same time and, if applied, could derail the deal.

France’s move could put serious cracks in Macron’s relationship with German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Canceling allows him to avoid making a potentially awkward planned joint appearance with Merkel at the event in Munich.

Newton First Day Cover *BFDC.co.uk



It is impossible to be a mathematician without being a poet in soul.
~Sofya Kovalevskaya

The 41st day of the year; Euler (1772) observed that the polynomial f(x)= x2 + x + 41 will produce a prime for any integer value of x in the interval 0 to 39. In 1778 Legendre realized that x2 - x + 41 will give the same primes for interval (1-40).
 n^2 + n + 41 is prime for n = 0 ... 39 and Is prime for nearly half the values of n up to 10,000,000. *John D. Cook

If you multiply 41 by any three digit number to produce a five digit number, every cyclic representation of that number formed by moving the last digit to the front is also divisible by 41. (for example 41*378 = 15,498. 41 will also divide 81,549; 98154; 49815; and 54,981 *The Moscow Puzzles
41 can be expressed as the sum of consecutive primes in two ways, (2 + 3 + 5 + 7 + 11 + 13), and the  (11 + 13 + 17).

41 is the smallest integer whose reciprocal has a 5-digit repeating decimal.  \(\frac{1}{41} = \overline{.02439}\)

1880 On 10 February 1880, an article ran in the Daily Times (of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania) describing a remarkable invention recently demonstrated by a local inventor, Dr. H.E. Licks. The invention allowed images to be transmitted by telegraph. In other words, it resembled what people today would recognize as a television. However, Licks called his invention a "diaphote," from the Greek dia meaning "through" and photos meaning "light".
Despite the excitement it generated, the diaphote turned out to be a hoax. However, it wasn't until 1917 that "Dr. H.E. Licks" revealed the hoax in a book, Recreations in Mathematics. Licks himself is believed to have been the pseudonym of Mansfield Merriman (1848-1925), a professor of engineering at Lehigh University. *Museum of Hoaxes

A maser installed at the Millstone Hill radar site, Westford, Mass., was used. The return echoes were distinguished from the background noise using digital signal processing. The results were confirmation by other researchers, and together led to a more precise determination of the value of the astronomical unit (AU), the Earth's mean distance to the sun. A new value of the AU, 149,600,000 km was adopted at a general meeting of the International Astronomical Union in Hamburg (1964). Radar was also bounced off the Sun (7 Apr 1959). Lincoln Laboratories had been set up to conduct military rather than astronomical research.*TIS

1747 Aida Yasuaki (February 10, 1747 – October 26, 1817) Japanese mathematician who published about 2000 works. Aida compiled Sampo tensi shinan which appeared in 1788. It is a book of geometry problems, developing formulae for ellipses, spheres, circles etc. Aida explained the use of algebraic expressions and the construction of equations. He also worked on number theory and simplified continued fraction methods due to Seki. *SAU

1785 Claude Louis Marie Henri Navier (10 Feb 1785 in Dijon, France - 21 Aug 1836 in Paris, France) Claude-Louis Navier was a French mathematician best known for the Navier-Stokes equations describing the behaviour of a incompressible fluid. We should note, however, that Navier derived the Navier-Stokes equations despite not fully understanding the physics of the situation which he was modelling. He did not understand about shear stress in a fluid, but rather he based his work on modifying Euler's equations to take into account forces between the molecules in the fluid. Although his reasoning is unacceptable today. *SAU

1885 Hardy Cross (10 Feb 1885; died 11 Feb 1959 at age 73) U.S. professor of civil and structural engineering whose outstanding contribution was a method of calculating tendencies to produce motion (moments) in the members of a continuous framework, such as the skeleton of a building. By the use of Cross's technique, known as the moment distribution method, or simply the Hardy Cross method, calculation can be carried to any required degree of accuracy by successive approximations, thus avoiding the immense labour of solving simultaneous equations that contain as many variables as there are rigid joints in a frame. He also successfully applied his mathematical methods to the solution of pipe network problems that arise in municipal water supply design; these methods have been extended to gas pipelines.

1888 Selig Brodetsky (10 February 1888 - 20 May 1954)was educated at Cambridge and Leipzig. He became a lecturer at Bristol and later lecturer and professor at Leeds.

1901 Richard Dagobert Brauer (10 Feb 1901; 17 Apr 1977 at age 76) German-American mathematician and educator, a pioneer in the development of algebra theory. He worked with Weyl on several projects including a famous joint paper on spinors (published in 1935 in the American Journal of Mathematics). This work provided a background for Paul Dirac's theory of the spinning electron within the framework of quantum mechanics. With Nesbitt, Brauer introduced the theory of blocks (1937). Brauer used this to obtain results on finite groups, particularly finite simple groups, and the theory of blocks would play a big part in much of Brauer's later work. Starting with his group-theoretical characterisation of the simple groups (1951), he spent the rest of his life formulating a method to classify all finite simple groups. *TIS

1907 Agnes Mary Clerke (10 Feb 1842, 20 Jan 1907) Irish astronomical writer who was a diligent compiler of facts rather than a practicing scientist. Nevertheless, by 1885, her exhaustive treatise, A Popular History of Astronomy in the Nineteenth Century gained international recognition as an authoritative work. In 1903, with Lady Huggins, she was elected an honorary member of the Royal Astronomical Society, a rank previously held only by two other women, Caroline Herschel and Mary Somerville. Her publications included several books and 55 pieces in the Edinburgh Review. She contributed some astronomer biographies to the Dictionary of National Biography and some astronomical entries in the Encyclopaedia Britannica. *TIS More detail about her here


DEATHS
1576 Wilhelm Xylander (born Wilhelm Holtzman, graecized to Xylander) (December 26, 1532 – February 10, 1576) was a German classical scholar and humanist.
Xylander was the author of a number of important works. He translated the first six books of Euclid into German with notes, the Arithmetica of Diophantus, and the De quattuor mathematicis scientiis of Michael Psellus into Latin. *Wik

1865 Heinrich Friedrich Emil Lenz (24 Feb 1804, 10 Feb 1865 at age 61) was the Russian physicist who framed Lenz's Law to describe the direction of flow of electric current generated by a wire moving through a magnetic field. Lenz worked on electrical conduction and electromagnetism. In 1833 he reported investigations into the way electrical resistance changes with temperature, showing that an increase in temperature increases the resistance (for a metal). He is best-known for Lenz's law, which he discovered in 1834 while investigating magnetic induction. It states that the current induced by a change flows so as to oppose the effect producing the change. Lenz's law is a consequence of the, more general, law of conservation of energy. *TIS

1868 Sir David Brewster (11 Dec 1781; 10 Feb 1868) Scottish physicist noted for his experimental work in optics and polarized light (light in which all waves lie in the same plane.) He is known for Brewster's Law, which relates the refractive index of a material to its polarizing angle (which is the incident angle at which reflected light becomes completely polarized. He patented the kaleidoscope in 1817. Later, he used lenses to improve three-dimensional images viewed with a stereoscope. Brewster also recommended the use of the lightweight, flat Fresnel lens in lighthouses.*TIS A nice blog about Brewster is here.

1891 Sonya Kovalevsky (Sofya Vasilyevna Kovalevskaya) (15 Jan 1850; 10 Feb 1891) professor of mathematics at Stockholm. In her youth, her bedroom was wallpapered with the pages of a text from her father’s schooldays, namely, Ostrogradsky’s lithographed lecture notes on the calculus.

1923 Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen (27 Mar 1845 - 10 Feb 1923 at age 77) was a German physicist who discovered the highly penetrating form of radiation that became known as X-rays on 8 Nov 1895. He received the first Nobel Prize for Physics (1901), “in recognition of the extraordinary services he has rendered by the discovery of the remarkable rays subsequently named after him.” This high-energy radiation, though first called Röngen rays, became known as X-rays. His discovery initiated revolutionary improvements in making medical diagnoses and enabled many new advances in modern physics. *TIS "In 1901 he became the first physicist to receive a Nobel prize." *VFR


1927 Alfred George Greenhill (29 Nov 1847 in London, England - 10 Feb 1927 in London, England) graduated from Cambridge and became Professor of Mathematics at the Royal Military Academy at Woolwich. His main work was on Elliptic Functions but he published widely on applications of mathematics to practical problems. He became an honorary member of the EMS in 1908. *SAU

1936 Eleanor Mildred (Balfour) Sidgwick, (11 March 1845 – 10 February 1936) was an activist for the higher education of women, Principal of Newnham College of the University of Cambridge and a leading figure in the Society for Psychical Research.
She was born in East Lothian, daughter of James Maitland Balfour and Lady Blanche Harriet. She was born into perhaps the most prominent political clan in nineteenth-century Britain, the 'Hotel Cecil': her brother Arthur would eventually himself become prime minister. Another brother, Frank, a biologist, died young in a climbing accident.
One of the first students at Newnham College in Cambridge, in 1876 she married (and became converted to feminism by) the philosopher Henry Sidgwick. In 1880 she became Vice-Principal of Newnham under the founding Principal Anne Clough, succeeding as Principal on Miss Clough's death in 1892. She and her husband resided there until 1900, the year of Henry Sidgwick's death. In 1894 Mrs Sidgwick was one of the first three women to serve on a royal commission, the Bryce commission on Secondary Education.
As a young woman, Eleanor had helped (John William Strutt, who was married to her sister, Evelyn) Lord Rayleigh improve the accuracy of experimental measurement of electrical resistance. She conducted several experiments in electricity and with him published three papers in the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society.
She subsequently turned her careful experimental mind to the question of testing the veracity of claims for psychical phenomena. She was elected President of the Society for Psychical Research in 1908 and named 'president of honour' in 1932. Her Husband, Henry, her brother and future Prime Minister, Arthur, and Lord Rayleigh all were also Presidents of the Society.)
She was a member of the Ladies Dining Society in Cambridge, with 11 other members.
In 1916 Mrs Sidgwick left Cambridge to live with one of her brothers near Woking; she remained there until her death in 1936.
She was awarded honorary degrees by the universities of Manchester, Edinburgh, St Andrews and Birmingham.Most of her writings related to Psychical Research, and are contained in the Proceedings of the Society for Psychical Research. However, some related to educational matters, and a couple of essays dealt with the morality of international affairs. *Wik & encyclopedia.com

1951 George Abram Miller (31 July 1863 – 10 February 1951) was an early group theorist whose many papers and texts were considered important by his contemporaries, but are now mostly considered only of historical importance.
Miller was born in Lynnville, Lehigh County, Pennsylvania, and died in Urbana, Illinois.*Wik

1994 Fritz John (14 June 1910 – 10 February 1994) was a German-born mathematician specialising in partial differential equations and ill-posed problems. His early work was on the Radon transform and he is remembered for John's equation.*Wik

1997 Jerome Namias (19 Mar 1910, 10 Feb 1997 at age 86) American meteorological researcher most noted for having pioneered the development of extended weather forecasts and who also studied the Dust Bowl of the 1930s and the El Niño phenomenon. *TIS In 1971 he joined the Scripps Institution and established the first Experimental Climate Research Center. His prognosis of warm weather during the Arab oil embargo of 1973 greatly aided domestic policy response.*Wik

          L'endométriose      Cache   Translate Page      
L'endométriose

L'endométriose est une maladie qui touche 10 à 15 % des femmes. En France, cela représente 2 à 4 millions de malades, en Europe 14 millions de femmes et 180 millions dans le monde. Ce qui veut dire que statistiquement, une femme sur dix de votre entourage a de l'endométriose.

Comme d'habitude, c'est sur moi que ça tombe

Avec un nombre de malades aussi important, on pourrait se dire que le diagnostic de cette maladie est une chose courante : détrompez-vous, il faut en moyenne 5 à 9 ans pour déceler l'endométriose chez une femme. Un durée énorme sachant que plus le diagnostic intervient tard, plus la maladie fait des dégâts.

Pourtant cette maladie existe depuis l'Antiquité, puisqu'elle était décrite dans le canon d'Hippocrate(2). Mais alors comment fonctionne cette maladie si répandue et pourtant si peu connue ? Pour répondre à cette question, révisons un peu la biologie féminine :

L'appareil reproducteur féminin

L'endomètre est la muqueuse interne de l'utérus. Les cellules de l'endomètre vont répondre à des stimuli hormonaux, et tous les mois cette muqueuse va s'épaissir pendant plusieurs semaines dans le but d'accueillir un ovocyte fécondé. Mais lorsqu'il n'y a pas de fécondation, l'endomètre se désagrège et coule hors de l'utérus et par le vagin : ce sont les règles.

Pour les patientes atteintes d'endométriose, des cellules de l'endomètre se retrouvent hors de la cavité utérine, donc par exemple dans les trompes, sur les ovaires, l'extérieur de l'utérus, le système digestif, le système urinaire, … en général la cavité abdominale. Tout comme les cellules situées dans l'endomètre, elles réagissent également aux stimuli hormonaux et vont donc s'épaissir durant le cycle puis se désagréger ; mais le sang, ne pouvant sortir par les voies naturelles, sera piégé dans la cavité abdominale. Ces lésions vont créer des phénomènes inflammatoires dans le corps, des kystes sanguins et des phénomènes d'adhérence entre les organes.

Les symptômes de l'endométriose sont très variables puisqu'ils vont dépendre des zones présentants des lésions. Les principaux symptômes sont de fortes douleurs pendant et hors des périodes de règles, des problèmes digestifs, de la fatigue chronique, de l'infertilité ainsi que des problèmes urinaires. Cependant chez certaines femmes l'endométriose peut-être asymptomatique.

L'origine de cette maladie n'est pas encore connue, le corps scientifique n'a pour l'instant que des hypothèses, mais des études ont montré que des facteurs génétiques et environnementaux pourraient faire partie des causes de cette maladie.

Si vous connaissez dans votre entourage une femme qui souffre de douleurs au ventre pendant ses règles, n'hésitez pas à lui parler de cette maladie.

Si vous souhaitez en savoir plus, pourquoi ne pas lire ce roman graphique en ligne qui traite du sujet ?

          Les mots croisés      Cache   Translate Page      
Les mots croisés

Historiquement, les linguistes n'ont pas la réputation d'être des rigolos.
Souvent sérieux, on les retrouve occupés à tenter de classifier et d'ordonner le savoir humain : tel par exemple Isidore de Séville qui rédige au VIIe Les Étymologies, retraçant les origines de plus de 100 000 mots.

Un travail de fourmi, aujourd'hui contesté sur certains points mais accepté dans son immense majorité, continué historiquement jusqu'à nos jours.

Mais voilà, aujourd'hui, que faire lorsque l'on maîtrise sur le bout des doigts la langue de Voltaire, que l'on a une culture générale plus épaisse qu'une tartine de Nutella dans une publicité télévisée, et que l'on souhaite en faire profiter ses congénères ?

Une des solutions est de devenir verbicruciste, ou sphynx. Mais qu'est-ce donc, me demanderez-vous ? Très simple ! Il s'agit de créer des grilles de mots croisés.

Apparues en France en 1924 sous le nom de mosaïque mystérieuse, le principe général reste le même aujourd'hui : à partir de définitions volontairement ambiguës, le joueur devra compléter une grille de mots qui se croisent.

Le but est de chatouiller l'intérêt du cruciverbiste (celui qui résout les grilles) en restant en permanence subtil : une bonne définition, tel un cavalier au échecs, fournit « deux pas en avant et un pas sur le côté » ; une fois le mot trouvé, la définition doit apparaître évidente.

Pour obtenir cet effet, les jeux de mots, les doubles sens ou les jeux sur la pollysémie sont courants.

Par exemple,

  • La définition Couvent peut être interprétée comme la conjugaison du verbe couver (donnant par exemple le mot Entourent), ou plus simplement Monastère.
  • La très classique définition Tube de rouge donne Internationale : il s'agit en effet d'un tube (musique) pour les rouges (communiste). La définition Chant pour communiste aurait eu la même solution, sans fournir la même satisfaction intellectuelle une fois le mot trouvé.
  • La définition Suit le cours des rivières est un autre bon exemple : une de ses solutions, Diamantaire, est inattendue et subtile.
  • Toujours à faire des histoires ! donnera par exemple Écrivain.

Bien évidemment, chacun est libre de trouver les grilles qui lui plaisent : un amateur ne prendra aucun plaisir sur une grille trop difficile, l'inverse étant vrai aussi.

Plus récemment, les mots fléchés ont pris leur envol. Il s'agit de grilles dont les définitions sont intégrées directement dans les cases noires : elles sont souvent plus faciles, et considérées plus abordable pour les débutants qui n'ont pas besoin de se référer de la grille à une liste de définitions en permanence.

On peut trouver des mots fléchés dans la plupart des périodiques de France : 20 minutes, Métro, le Progrès, Femme Actuelle, Notre Temps, …

Comment choisir la couleur de ses boules de pétanque ?

Vous avez déjà répondu rouge, verte, ou bleue à cette question, vous vous êtes trompé d'article. Il n'est pas question de boules en plastique pour les enfants ici. Je vais vous parler de boules de pétanque blanches ou noires.

Blanches ?
Elles sont plus répandues dans le sud de la France. La raison est très simple, elles glissent mieux en sortie de la main. Du coup, contre les mains moites, la transpiration, les boules blanches sont une bonne solution.

Autre avantage, elles sont plus propres, on se salit donc beaucoup moins en jouant avec des boules blanches. Et ce, encore plus si elles sont en acier inoxydable, c'est à dire qui ne rouille pas, ce qui n'est pas le cas des boules noires.

Noires ?
Les boules noires rouillent, c'est d'ailleurs leur principal inconvénient.
Par contre, si vous n'aimez pas les boules qui glissent, les boules noires sont faites pour vous. Certains font même exprès de laisser la rouille arriver…
Il existe plus de modèle de boules noires tendres, pour un rebond mieux contrôlé, et ces modèles sont généralement moins chers que leurs équivalent en boule blanche inox.

Et n'oubliez pas, comme dit dans la chanson « une partie de pétanque » : l'important c'est de se faire plaisir !

          Lo que debes saber sobre la famosa agua de Lourdes [VIDEO]      Cache   Translate Page      
Lourdes, 09 Feb. 19 (ACI Prensa).- ¿Sabías que de la gruta de Massabielle en el Santuario de Lourdes (Francia) brota agua con la que se han realizado muchos milagros y podrías conseguir un poco de esa agua desde donde estés?

El santuario ubicado en Francia describió hace un año en su sitio web todo lo que los peregrinos deben saber sobre esa agua y cómo conseguirla; información que es necesaria recordar sobre todo a pocos días de que se celebre la fiesta de Nuestra Señora de Lourdes y la 27ª Jornada Mundial del Enfermo, el próximo 11 de febrero.

Todo comenzó el jueves 25 de febrero de 1858 cuando la Virgen María le dijo a Santa Bernardita: "vaya a beber y lavarse en la fuente” lo que para el santuario se traduce en “una invitación para todos los peregrinos hasta el día de hoy”.

“El agua de Lourdes no debe confundirse con agua bendita. Es un agua normal, ligeramente calcárea y comparable a cualquier otra agua de manantiales cercanos” que no tiene virtud térmica o propiedad específica, sino que “es completamente independiente del río Gave de Pau y se conduce por unos canales hacia unos depósitos para alimentar los diferentes grifos y piscinas”, describió.

“Aparentemente el medio más frecuente de las curaciones es el empleo del agua de la fuente, ya sea en aplicación directa, tomándola o bañándose en ella. La Iglesia Católica especifica que Dios cura a través de los elementos naturales y los sacramentos, con la ayuda de la Virgen María y la oración de los cristianos”.

Al día de hoy, existen innumerables milagros que están vinculados al uso del agua luego de ocurridas las apariciones de la Virgen María desde el año 1858.  

Santa Bernardita Soubirous dijo en una ocasión: "esta agua es considerada como un medicamento... pero tienes que guardar la fe y orar: ¡esta agua no podría hacer nada sin fe!".

El agua de la gruta de Lourdes está a disposición de todos en forma gratuita. Además, puede ser enviada por correspondencia en envases plásticos y solo deberá abonarse los gastos del recipiente, embalaje y envío.

Cuando se solicite el agua se debe escribir la cantidad deseada, que no exceda de los dos litros, y la dirección a donde debe ser enviada.

It was the fulfilment of the ultimate footballing fantasy. Only 20 men had done it previously, each one a titan, a name to stir awe and respect. Think of Bobby Moore and Carlos Alberto, Franz Beckenbauer and Diego Maradona. On a tumultuous evening in Moscow last July, Hugo Lloris became the 21st, when he hoisted aloft the World Cup as the captain of France.

It was an occasion of high drama, with even the elements reinforcing the feel of a primal epic – thunder, lightning and tipping rain framing France’s 4-2 win over Croatia. When Lloris got his hands on the trophy, and fireworks and golden confetti lit the scene, it was tempting to wonder how he could possibly drink it all in.

          The third edition of Doha Triathlon achieves huge success      Cache   Translate Page      

More than 400 athletes from Qatar and around the world took part in the third edition of Doha Triathlon which took place at MIA Park on Friday 8th February 2019.

The event which is supported by Qatar Tourism Council, Qatar Triathlon Federation, Qatar Olympic Committee and Qatar Museums featured different races for men and women including Olympic-distance triathlon, sprint, super sprint for youth and adults, in addition to a kids duathlon.

The excellent Doha weather helped greatly in the success of the event that included swimming in the bay next to the Museum of Islamic Art, cycling at Doha corniche and running in the scenic Mia Park. The event kicked off with the sprint race of national championship series, which included 750m swimming, 20 km cycling and 5km running. Saad Al Mejali from Q-Tri emerged as a new Qatar champion with 1:11:52h, taking over Ebrahim Al Romaihi, and reducing his last year’s time by 51 seconds to shift him to the third place, while Abdulrahman Al Jaber was second. It was followed by the Olympic-distance triathlon that involves 1500m swimming, 40 km cycling and 10km running.

The best overall men top place was won by Seyed Hassan Babaei, an international participant from Iran, with a time of 2:04:52, while on the ladies’ section, Toni Snoxell from TriClub Doha won first place with 2:23:59. In the team relays, Police Sport teams had an outstanding performance with Ismail Dergaa/Thomas Whateley/Ahmed Sebbar in first place (1:51:19) and Aziz Moullah/Fadhel Elhativ/Mohamed Mehdi in third (2:01:38). Next was the sprint distance (open category), where last year’s champion Bernard McCullagh kept his title as best over all male reducing his time from 1:06:14 to 1:02:32.

He was followed by Ethan Bennett who also was second last year and veteran international participant from Spain, Ruben Hernando Ferrero with 1:03:34. Aday Alvarez was third in the open category with 1:04:03. In the ladies’ section Isora Sosa Caballero took the first place with 1:12:19 overtaking last year’s champion Carla Pegigueiro who was second with a time of 1:16:20 and international participant Mary Shepro from USA, Endurance Sports, who finished third with 1:17:23 . On team relays, Police Sport took the first place with 1:04:44 by Adam Ayari/Alvin Quimzon/Houssine Lahdou. 

More than 50 participants took part in the Super Sprint distance, with adult beginners and teenagers’ categories, Kids Duathlon, which only included swimming and running, was also overbooked with a variety of ages that ranged between 7 to 12 years old. The morning started with cold temperatures but turned to a very beautiful sunny day with high public attendance. All the participants received a commemorative medal after crossing the finish line, before celebrating in the festive finish line area. Later, Qatar Triathlon Federation officials and representatives of the sponsors and partners took part in the medal ceremony, where top three finishers received special medals and prizes from Al Tawfeeq Travels and Royal Air Maroc.

The success of Doha Triathlon 2019 came as no surprise, as the number of triathlon events in Qatar nearly tripled over the past few years, the country’s population of triathletes is constantly growing, and Qatar Triathlon Federation is working hard to promote the sport and form a strong national team through organizing various events that include the national triathlon series. Doha Triathlon was the third stage of the series, with the fourth and final stages scheduled for Lusail and the Pearl over the next couple of months. Doha Triathlon also clearly strengthened its position as one of the top triathlon events in the region. This year the event attracted triathletes from different countries around the world including Oman, Kuwait, Iran, USA, Great Britain, France, Spain and Romania.

Dr. Nasser Al Mohannadi, Qatar Cycling and Triathlon vice-president, and head of triathlon at the federation, said: “We are proud of the success achieved by the third edition of Doha Triathlon. It is great to see more than 400 participants, coming not only from Qatar, but also from all around the world joining us today. MIA Park provided the perfect setting for the event. We would like to thank Qatar National Tourism Council and Qatar Museums for their support to the event which will in turn support Qatar’s tourism and economy. We also, of course, would like to thank all the participants, our sponsors and our partners, without them it would have not been possible to organize such a wonderful event.”

“The sport of triathlon has seen rapid growth in Qatar during the past few years, thanks to the great support of Qatar Olympic Committee headed by HE Sheikh Joaan bin Hamad Al-Thani. The number of Qatari participants at this year’s Doha Triathlon increased by 20 percent compared to last year. It is an indication that we are heading in the right way. I was keen on participating in the event today as a triathlete to encourage the younger generation, and we were also honoured by the participation of the Qatar Cycling and Triathlon Federation President, Dr. Mohammed Jaham Al Kuwari and the Qatar National Team members. The future of triathlon in Qatar looks bright,” he added.

Doha Triathlon partners include Al Tawfeeq Travel, Royal Air Maroc, Movenpick Hotel, LES Luxury Equipment Solutions, Qatar Living, Red Bull, Qatar Airways, Royal Riviera, Aqua Carpatica, Vita Coco, Almond Breeze, Eat Natural, Carbon Wheels and Padel Qatar.

          A Hennessy expert in France told me the best way to drink 3 different types of cognac, from mixing it in an absinthe-rinsed glass to adding cold water      Cache   Translate Page      

cognac hennessy france

  • I recently visited the Hennessy distillery in Cognac, France, where a cognac expert and tour guide explained the best ways to drink three different types of the spirit.
  • The younger types of cognacs, VS and VSOP, can be used in a variety of different ways, including in cocktails.
  • But the XO, or "Extra Old," aged for a minimum of 10 years, should be drunk either neat or on ice.
  • To open up the aroma of a cognac, you can add a bit of cold water if you're drinking it neat.

 

I recently visited the Hennessy distillery in Cognac, France, a small town about a five-hour drive from Paris. Hennessy, one of the major cognac houses, was founded in 1765 and offers guided tours and tastings at its headquarters on the banks of the Charente River.

On one of these tours, cognac expert and tour guide Gwendoline Poirier explained the best ways to drink three different types of cognac.

With Poirier, I tried three different types of Hennessy cognac: VS, VSOP Privilege, and XO. 

How to drink VS cognac

The youngest Hennessy cognac, VS or "Very Special," is aged between two and eight years and is "the world's most popular cognac," according to Hennessy.

Poirier described the taste as "fresh fruits, grapes, and citrus flavors. And after, I can feel more vanilla flavors, toasted almonds, creme brulée, these types of aromas."

You can drink the VS in a variety of different ways, Poirier said.

gwen hennessy

One of these ways is in a cocktail such as the Summit, which includes lemonade, ginger, and lime. In France, a professional committee in charge of communications for cognac is encouraging more people to try such drinks.

"They're the ones starting to talk about this cocktail and make it a little bit more trendy and something quite easy to drink and to make at home," Poirier said.

You can also, of course, drink it neat or with ice, she said, but it will taste a bit stronger than the longer-aged cognacs.

How to drink VSOP Privilege cognac

The next cognac, VSOP Privilege, which is aged for at least four years on average, is also used in cocktails. At my tasting, I tried a drink called the Sazerac. To make it, a tumbler glass is first "washed" with absinthe, which was once blamed for driving drinkers to insanity.

"[Absinthe] is very powerful, so you won't be able to feel the other ingredients if you have it in the blend," Poirier said.

The Sazerac also includes ginseng, cinnamon and other spices, simple syrup, and Angostura bitters. My cocktail also had a non-traditional ingredient: oolong tea, in celebration of the Chinese New Year, which was coming up at the time of my visit.

How to drink XO cognac

When you level up to the older Hennessy XO, or "Extra Old," which is aged for at least 10 years, you want to drink it either neat or on the rocks, Poirier said. When drinking it neat, you should use a tulip-shaped glass, which allows you to "really enjoy the color thanks to the shape and for the aroma to get to your nose," Poirier told me.

But if you're drinking your cognac with ice, a tumbler glass is best.

You can also simply add cold water to your cognac.

"Water will create a sort of explosion of the molecules, of the aromas, so it's easier to find the aromas," Poirier said. "Even the tasting committees are always adding a bit of water." 

According to Poirier, the most important thing is to enjoy cognac however you like it.

"We don't like to tell people, 'OK, this is the good thing, this is the bad thing. This, yes. This, no,'" she said. "It's more advice ... Otherwise, just have fun." 

SEE ALSO: I visited the Hennessy distillery in Cognac, France, and an expert told me the best way to drink the spirit is no longer in the traditional glass

           Broklyn Beats 24 CD "Culture de l'incoherence"      Cache   Translate Page      
Catégorie : BREAKCORE
Artist(s) : Les Trolls
Label(s) : Broklyn Beats
Format :CD
Hailing from Toulouse in the south of France, but also living in Belgium and constantly traveling, Les Trolls are a collective of producers, MCs and artists who have continued to impress us the past five years with a string of self-released EPs. Their style, created largely by 2 producers, Nurgle and Trouble Clef, is a blend of elements most commonly known in French free-party circles as hard tek. While hard tek generally refers to a techno sound punctuated by distorted 909 kicks, Les Trolls blend a solid hip hop foundation into the mix, utilizing Paris MC Abraxas, among others. They also don't shy away from weaving in live instrumentation and improvisation. After years of being impressed, we decided it was the right time to compile their best tracks onto one CD, their first U.S. release. Check this link to hear the first track on the CD:?

          Companhia de petróleo da Venezuela transfere conta para banco russo para evitar sanções, dizem fontes      Cache   Translate Page      

CARACAS E CIDADE DO MÉXICO - A estatal Petróleos de Venezuela (PDVSA) instruiu os presidentes das suas joint ventures para que, daqui por diante, recebam o dinheiro das exportações de petróleo em uma nova conta bancária na instituição russa Gazprombank a fim de contornar as sanções impostas pelos Estados Unidos, de acordo com um documento ao qual a Reuters teve acesso no sábado e a duas fontes familiarizadas com o assunto.

As empresas nas quais a PDVSA atua na Faixa do Orinoco, em parceria com as companhias petrolíferas como a Chevron, a francesa Total e Equinor Noruega, devem notificar os seus clientes que os pagamentos em dólares ou euros devem ser feitos na conta bancária em Moscou, indica uma carta assinada pelo vice-presidente de Finanças da PDVSA, Fernando de Quintal, datada de 8 de fevereiro. Venezuela

Após sanções financeiras impostas em janeiro pelo governo americano à Venezuela, os parceiros estrangeiros devem ainda confirmar formalmente à PDVSA que continuarão participando dos projetos, disseram fontes do setor de petróleo.

As medidas impostas pelo governo dos EUA deixaram dezenas de navios de transporte de óleo cru parados dentro e fora de águas venezuelanas. E estão levando também a PDVSA a parar a produção e aperfeiçoamento de petróleo no projeto Petrocedeño, onde Equinor e Total participam, devido à falta de diluentes importados dos Estados Unidos, contaram duas outras fontes familiarizadas com a decisão.

Com as sanções impostas por Washington, além de ficarem proibidas de comprar o petróleo venezuelano, as empresas americanas também estão impedidas de exportar para o país sul-americano o nafta do qual a PDVSA precisa para diluir o óleo pesado de suas reservas, as maiores do mundo. Antes disso, 40% das exportações da PDVSA, ou 500 mil barris por dia, seguiam para os Estados Unidos.

A PDVSA não respondeu imediatamente a uma solicitação de informações.

Festa di San Maroun presso il Pontificio Collegio Maronita in Urbe
Cong. Chiese Orientali
Alle ore 18 di sabato 9 febbraio è stata celebrata la Divina Liturgia in rito siro-antiocheno maronita in occasione della Solennità di San Maroun, patrono e fondatore della Chiesa di Antiochia dei Maronita, presso il Pontificio Collegio Maronita in Urbe.
La celebrazione, presieduta dal Procuratore presso la Santa Sede e Rettore S.E. mons. Francois Eid (allegata omelia), è stata concelebrata da numerosi sacerdoti e religiosi, maroniti, di altre Chiese orientali cattoliche e latini. Hanno assistito gli Em.mi Cardinali Leonardo Sandri, Prefetto della Congregazione per le Chiese Orientali, e Antonio Vegliò. Erano presenti i Rettori dell'Università Gregoriana e del Pontificio Istituto Orientale, i Rappresentanti del Patriarcato di Costantinopoli a Roma e della Diocesi Copto-Ortodossa. Per il Corpo Diplomatico, tra gli altri, gli Ambasciatori del Libano presso la Santa Sede e la Repubblica Italiana.
Prima della benedizione, il Cardinale Sandri ha rivolto un saluto ai presenti, ricordando gli eventi di Bari del 7 luglio e il recente viaggio Apostolico del Santo Padre Francesco ad Abu Dhabi (cfr. allegato)

***
Omelia della Festa di SAN MARUN 2019
Eminentissimi Signori Cardinali,
Eccellenze Reverendissime,
Eccellenti Signori Ambasciatori e membri del Corpo Diplomatico,
Egregi Magnifici Rettori, Direttori e Professori,
Monsignori, Procuratori Patriarcali e Religiosi,
Rev.di Padri e Suore, cari Fratelli e sorelle.
’Padre, glorifica il tuo nome’’ (Gv 12/28)
La salita di Gesù a Gerusalemme, in un atto d’amore e di obbedienza alla Volontà del Padre, per morire sulla croce, rappresenta il sommo esercizio della sua ‘’Kenosis’’ per la salvezza degli uomini .
Il Signore parla del ‘’chicco di grano caduto in terra che, se non muore, rimane solo; se invece muore, produce molto frutto’’(Gv 12/24).
La Chiesa Maronita, nella liturgia della festa di San Marun, medita questa dialettica di morte e di vita, e scopre la somiglianza al chicco di grano che il Signore aveva seminato in questa terra d’Oriente dove è cresciuto, durante tutta la sua storia e continua il suo pellegrinaggio fra ‘’le tribolazioni del mondo e le consolazioni di Dio’’, come diceva S. Agostino. Così visse come Chiesa pellegrina imparando la fedeltà al Suo Signore e imitando il modello di santità e di carità del suo Padre e Patrono San Marun.
1-Fedeltà alla fede
Dopo la partecipazione al Concilio di Calcedonia (451), i Maroniti sapevano che la loro fede era in pericolo, a causa delle persecuzioni; perciò, lasciarono la fertile Siria del Nord verso la Montagna arida del Libano, preferendo la libertà alla prosperità. Lì sono rimasti per più di 500 anni nascosti nella Valle Santa di Qadisha, come i cenobiti, dimenticati da tutti. Perciò, la loro fede generò santità, e molti si misero sulla sequela di San Marun seguendo il suo modello nella via della perfezione. Da questa scuola di santità emersero poi San Charbel e i suoi Confratelli che formarono il tesoro più prezioso che il Signore abbia mai donato alla Chiesa Maronita.
2-Fedeltà al servizio della Carità
Figli di Antiochia, la ‘’Città di Dio’’, metropoli ricca di umanità e di diversità culturale, i Maroniti, per aprirsi alla sorgente dell’universalità della fede, mandarono a Roma i primi studenti nel 1470; continuarono a farlo ufficialmente dopo l’erezione del Pontificio Collegio Maronita, fondato dal Papa Gregorio XIII nel 1584, in cui, i loro giovanissimi figli studiarono la scienza di Dio e quella degli uomini. Una volta tornati al Paese dei Cedri, aprirono scuole gratuite sotto le quercie e nei conventi per insegnare ‘’le verità della fede e le scienze utili’’. Più tardi, nel 1736, venne celebrato il Sinodo Libanese, e promulgò l’obligo e la gratuità dell’insegnamento, anche alle donne; quindi le scuole furono aperte per tutti: Cristiani, Musulmani e Drusi dando vita alla Rinascita Culturale Araba’’. Basta considerare, che 40 anni dopo la fondazione dell’Ordine Religioso Maronita (Libanesi e Mariamiti), sono state istituite 16 scuole: 12 nei villaggi cristiani, una a Deir el Kamar, per i Drusi e tre per i Musulmani di Tripoli, Saida e Akka. Questo servizio d’insegnamento non impedì ai Maroniti di occuparsi anche dei servizi sociali, educativi, agricoli, economici e politici...a beneficio di tutti.
Così nacque il Libano, Paese d’incontro tra il Cristianesimo e l’Islam, modello di convivenza tra 18 comunità religiose diverse e messagio di dialogo e di pace per l’Oriente e l’Occidente. Attualmente, solo nel Libano, la festa dell’Annunciazione a Maria è una festa nazionale, per i cristiani e i musulmani. Da quest’incontro con l’Islam, fatto con spirito di dialogo, nel rispetto della persona, dei suoi diritti umani, culturali e spirituali, è nato il ‘’Libano Messagio’’ di libertà e modello di diversità e di convivenza, dove la cittadinanza è l’unico aggettivo che rende uguali tutti i cittadini davanti alla legge di un stato laico che istituì nella sua Costituzione che: ‘’ogni legge che contraddisce la convivenza è Nulla ‘’!
Quanto siamo stati fieri e commossi di sentire il Santo Padre ripetere ed insistere, nel Suo discorso davanti all’assemblea del Convegno ad Abou-Dhabi, e nel Documento sulla Fratellanza umana, sui fondamenti di questa fratellanza e la convivenza come così sono state volute, nel Libano, dai nostri padri, ed affermata dall’Assemblea dei Patriarci Cattolici dell’Oriente come: ‘’una scelta libera che consideriamo come parte della Volontà di Dio per noi’’.
Nel senso di scelta libera, Ernest Renan definiva la nozione della Nazione in questi termini: ‘’Essa non si fonda sull’unità linguistica, nemmeno su quella del credo, neanche sull’unità geografica e storica commune; la nazione si fonda solamente sulla volontà di vivere in comune’’.
In questa occasione, sento il dovere di menzionare il filosofo libanese ortodosso Charles Malek, che fu presidente dell’Assemblea Generale delle Nazioni Unite, ministro degli Esteri del Libano negli anni 50, Consigliere personale del grande Patriarca di Costantinopoli Atenagora, e uno dei tre illustri personaggi che hanno redatto la ‘’Carta dei Diritti dell’uomo’’; quest’uomo illustre aveva 2 peccati originali: Lui l’Ortodosso, aveva due fratelli sacerdoti latini, uno domenicano e l’altro gesuita! Questo Professore scrisse due lettere ai Maroniti, nelle quali enumerò 10 doni che, secondo lui, sono stati dati loro da Dio e hanno contribuito alla fondazione del paese dei Cedri.
Charles Malek era un professore di filosofia all’Università Americana di Beirut, invitò nel 1967 il Teologo Hans Küng per tenere alcune conferenze sul ruolo delle religioni nella pace mondiale. Le conclusioni furono tre:
1-l’umanità non può sopravvivere, senza una legge morale internazionale che protegge la vita umana, l’ambiente naturale e le generazioni future;
2-senza pace religiosa, non ci sarà pace internazionale;
3-la pace religiosa si ottiene col dialogo tra le religioni, non per stabilire una tregua, ma per andare oltre, ad una cooperazione e una coalizione tra credenti e non-credenti, su un solo valore: l’uomo !
Le conclusioni di Hans Küng sono state un eco dell’Insegnamento ufficiale della Chiesa, come anche la codificazione della vita e dell’operato dei Maroniti riguardo alla cooperazione coi musulmani. Il ‘’Libano-Messaggio’’, frutto dell’intesa storica tra Cristiani e Musulmani è oggi, il modello e il migliore esempio per costruire la civiltà dell’incontro e della cooperazione tra i popoli. È vero che le comunità libanesi hanno vissuto tempi d’incomprensione e di tensioni violente, ma sono state tutte sempre convinte che quest’avventura della convivialità valeva veramente la pena, e vissero il dialogo:
- dei cuori con fratellanza fiduciosa;
-della vita sincera, vivendo insieme in pace;
-della parola coraggiosa, uniti nella difesa dei veri valori;
-del silenzio, in cui Dio parla nei cuori e l’uomo l’adora in spirito e verità;
Torno a Charles Malek che conclude: ‘’C’è un donatore e un donato; solo Dio dona, nello stesso tempo, è il donato! Dio dà se stesso, invece l’uomo, dà ciò che Dio gli ha dato. Ai Maroniti Dio ha dato tanto, ma non per se stessi. I Maroniti sono credenti e in quanto tali, credono che Dio ha dato loro un dinamismo e una generosità straordinaria nel donarsi in tutti i campi: i loro santi si onorano sugli Altari della Chiesa Universale, ogni giorno si costruiscono nuove chiese, nuovi conventi, nuovi collegi, ambulatori o asili. Religiosi, religiose e consacrati lavorano, giorno e notte, nel campo della cultura, dell’insegnamento e della sanità, a servizio dei poveri e bisognosi, servendo Dio e l’intera società libanese.
Stasera in questa Divina Liturgia, la cui popolarità fa il suo genio, dove la Santa Messa diventa l’incarnazione naturale dei cuori e sentimenti di un popolo semplice e paziente, senza imperatori e teologi, ma fatto di poveri, operai, vedove, peccatori, semplici in spirito, quindi uomini e donne normali legati alla terra e alla natura ed attirati da Cristo ed illuminati dal volto della Madonna, stasera, preghiamo perchè tutti i Maroniti possano riscoprire la loro identità originale, cioè di essere: Pellegrini nella fedeltà alla loro fede in Dio, radicali nella santità di vita, ed umili nel servizio dei fratelli, tutti i fratelli, nella carità di Cristo; così, a sequela del loro Padre e Patrono San Marun, e come il ‘’chicco di grano caduto in terra e morto’’(Gv,12/24), producano frutti di riconciliazione, di concordia e di pace. Amen.

Indirizzo di saluto del Cardinale Leonardo Sandri, Prefetto della Congregazione per le Chiese Orientali, al termina della Divina Liturgia in rito siro-antiocheno maronita nella Solennità di Mar Maroun – Roma, Chiesa del Pontificio Collegio Maronita, sabato 9 febbraio 2019 A.D.
Eminenza Reverendissima, Cardinale Vegliò,
Eccellenza Reverendissima, Mons. Francois Eid,
Eccellenze, Signori Ambasciatori del Libano presso la Santa Sede e presso il Quirinale,
Distinte Autorità,
Reverendi Sacerdoti, Religiosi e Religiose,
Sorelle e fratelli nel Signore!
1.È ancora vivo in ciascuno di noi il ricordo del dono che il Signore ha fatto alla Chiesa e al mondo attraverso il Viaggio Apostolico del Santo Padre Francesco ad Abu Dhabi, cui ho avuto la gioia e l’onore di partecipare, e dove era anche presente il Patriarca S.B. Em.ma il Cardinale Bechara Boutros Raï, al quale inviamo il nostro saluto e il nostro ricordo nella preghiera. Nell’incontro di Bari lo scorso 7 luglio come ad Abu Dhabi una settimana fa, quelli che sono stati negli ultimi anni attraverso le definizioni dei Sommi Pontefici dei titoli riservati all’amato Libano, si sono come distesi nei gesti e nel desiderio a tutto il Vicino e il Medio Oriente: l’incontro tra leader e seguaci delle diverse confessioni cristiane e diverse religioni, iniziando dai tre monoteismi che si richiamano in diverso modo alla fede di Abramo, sono stati un messaggio e un laboratorio. Un messaggio, perché l’esperienza stessa dello stare insieme, dello stringersi la mano, senza rinnegare o mettere da parte la propria identità e tradizione, ha rilanciato davanti agli occhi di tutti la possibilità di una convivenza pacifica, mettendo al bando ogni forma di violenza verbale o fisica o visioni fondamentaliste che piegano il nome di Dio a progetti di conquista o potere. Un laboratorio, perché sappiamo bene quanto lavoro è stato necessario per giungere a questi eventi e quanto ancora ne servirà perché essi siano davvero semi che germogliano e crescono: ci vuole la volontà di tutti di conoscere, di studiare, di diffondere il contenuto della Dichiarazione firmata dal Santo Padre, che il nostro Dicastero invierà a tutti i Capi delle Chiese Orientali Cattoliche perché se ne facciano tramite all’interno delle rispettive comunità, prime tra tutte quelle come il Pontificio Collegio Maronita, dedicate alla formazione dei futuri sacerdoti e guide.
2. Il Libano dunque, ben lieto di aver “prestato” il suo essere Paese Messaggio e Laboratorio di convivenza e di pace, dovrà essere in prima linea in questo nuovo cammino, di speranza e di riconciliazione, e particolare responsabilità hanno la Chiesa Maronita, nei suoi Pastori e nei suoi fedeli: potrebbe sembrare un compito troppo arduo, di fronte alle immani sfide della vostra società. Le tensioni sociali e l’instabilità politica – ringraziamo il Signore per la formazione del nuovo governo ed auspichiamo che possa lavorare per il bene di tutti – le sfide dell’accoglienza, la lotta contro ogni forma di abuso o controtestimonianza allo spirito del Vangelo nei consacrati come nei laici, qualche mormorazione o parola in più che anziché costruire fomenta divisioni dentro e fuori la comunità cristiana. Oggi il Signore ci riporta negli occhi e nel cuore il segreto per superare ogni ostacolo e ogni sfida, con fiducia e determinazione: la santità del patrono e fondatore San Maroun. Il suo rifugiarsi sulla montagna che non è un ritirarsi in disparte dal mondo, ma il mettere le profonde radici in Dio, unica vera sicurezza e difesa per i maroniti lungo la storia secolare: lo spirito contemplativo di preghiera e la capacità di lavorare per la costruzione di un mondo più giusto e più vero, non per proprio vantaggio e tornaconto, ma come servizio all’umanità sul modello di Cristo, venuto non per essere servito ma per servire e dare la sua vita in riscatto per tutti.
3. Preghiamo la Tutta Santa Madre di Dio Maria Santissima, tanto amata in Libano, insieme a Mar Maroun e a tutti i santi maroniti, perché continuino a vegliare sul popolo che a loro ricorre supplicando il dono della pace e della prosperità: soltanto seguendo con autenticità le loro orme potremo ottenere quanto speriamo.

“Il Manifesto della Fede”, l’attacco di Müller alla dottrina del Papa
Vatican Insider
(Domenico Agasso jr) Il Cardinale firma un documento in cui critica duramente il Pontefice (senza citarlo). È lanciato da Lifesitenews, tra le testate che diffusero la richiesta di dimissioni a Bergoglio da parte di Viganò. Non lo cita esplicitamente, ma le critiche e «correzioni» sono precise e mirate: nel «Manifesto della Fede» il cardinale Müller, che si firma «Prefetto della Congregazione per la dottrina della fede dal 2012-2017», attacca duramente la dottrina di papa Francesco. Il suo documento è pubblicato e rilanciato in sei lingue (...)

          Dico bravo a Di Maio: La sua visita ha scosso le Istituzioni in Francia.      Cache   Translate Page      

«Dico bravo al signor Di Maio. La sua visita ha permesso di far muovere le istituzioni in Francia. Finora non eravamo riusciti a scuotere Macron, e finalmente con una sola azione la République ha tremato», dice il gilet giallo Christophe Chalençon, che per avere incontrato Di Maio ha provocato il richiamo dell' ambasciatore francese a Roma.

 

Cioè la «République» ha tremato perché lei e Di Maio vi siete visti a Montargis?

«Esattamente. Un cittadino italiano-europeo ha incontrato un cittadino francese-europeo. Per me Luigi Di Maio è come il generale Lafayette».

 

«Come Lafayette andò a portare aiuto ai cittadini americani che volevano sottrarsi al giogo degli inglesi, così Di Maio è venuto in Francia e ha rotto il protocollo, gli faccio i miei complimenti».

 

A Di Maio viene rimproverato di avere visto proprio lei, che aveva parlato di «guerra civile in Francia».

«Ma io non ho mai invocato la guerra civile, ho denunciato che c' era il rischio che ci arrivassimo, era una paura non una minaccia».

E la proposta di dare il potere al generale de Villiers?

CHRISTOPHE CHALENCON

«Mica sarebbe un colpo di Stato, Pierre de Villiers è un militare in pensione che ha servito sotto tutti i governi. Oggi la politica è talmente corrotta in Francia che ci vuole un uomo retto, di valore e di convinzioni come lui».

 

È vero che lei rappresenta l'ala dura dei gilet gialli?

«Per niente, mi colloco nel giusto mezzo. Mi classificano all'estrema destra perché ho una posizione molto chiara verso i musulmani: quelli che si riconoscono nella République , darei la vita per loro; gli integralisti invece mi troveranno sempre sul loro cammino. Con Di Maio abbiamo la stessa visione dell' immigrazione, bisogna smetterla di affamare i popoli africani con il franco CFA e invece permettere loro di svilupparsi in modo che non siano costretti a emigrare».

Il suo incontro con Di Maio e Di Battista ha fatto arrabbiare il governo francese ma pure la sua compagna di lotta e capolista dei gilet gialli alle europee, Ingrid Levavasseur, che si è dissociata e l'ha trattata da usurpatore. Cosa succede adesso? Lei è ancora il portavoce della lista RIC (Ralliement d'initiative citoyenne)?

«No, vista la reazione di Levavasseur, nella notte tra martedì e mercoledì mi sono dimesso. Ma noi gilet gialli che vogliamo allearci con il Movimento Cinque Stelle stiamo creando un grande movimento popolare che si presenterà alle europee. Lo annunceremo all'inizio della prossima settimana

È per questo che ha incontrato Di Maio?

«Sì, perché a differenza di Levavasseur noi abbiamo accettato la sua offerta di metterci a disposizione la piattaforma Rousseau del Movimento Cinque Stelle, che ci permetterà di selezionare i candidati in modo molto democratico. E noi gli abbiamo parlato della nostra piattaforma Noos, per trattare l' insieme delle rivendicazioni che emanano dal popolo. È stato soprattutto uno scambio di tecnologie. Il nostro movimento in Francia corrisponderà al Movimento Cinque Stelle in Italia. Insieme trasformeremo l' Europa».

          Il Pd espone il vessillo francese. M5S: "Servi di chi ci ha resi schiavi"      Cache   Translate Page      


Il Pd espone la bandiera francese. Anche su Twitter. Nella diatriba tra il Belpaese e Parigi, il Partito Democratico prende una posizione netta.
Nel suo account social, infatti, il Pd ha esposto il vessillo transalpino al fianco di quello dell'Unione Europea e dell'Italia. Una scelta di campo dopo che Parigi ha richiamato l'ambasciatore a seguito delle polemiche con il Viminale (vedi controlli francesi sui treni) e con Di Maio (leggi incontro con i gilet gialli).
"Il M5s, in particolare il Ministro Di Maio, ha incontrato la parte più violenta dei gilet gialli, per altro sconfessata dalla parte più pacifica. Il richiamo di un ambasciatore è un gesto che non si compiva dai tempi del fascismo. Oltre al grave problema della credibilità di questa Italia c'è la questione economica e commerciale: oggi Fubini ci ricorda che il rapporto fra Italia e Francia sul Made in Italy riguarda una cifra pari a 10 miliardi", ha detto il candidato alle primarie del Pd Roberto Giachetti.
La scelta dei dem è stata però criticata dal M5S. "Provocazione anti italiana del Pd, partito dei poteri forti, con una bandiera francese sul suo Twitter. Noi amiamo la Francia ma amiamo di più l'Italia. Che segnale vogliono mandare e a chi? Pd servo con chi ci ha messo in ginocchio e ci ha resi schiavi dell'Europa delle banche", scrive il sottosegretario alla Pubblica Amministrazione Mattia Fantinati.

Denuncia del cardinale Nichols preoccupato anche per gli effetti della Brexit. Il Regno Unito fra sprechi e povertà alimentare
L'Osservatore Romano
Si concentrerà sulla povertà e sulla sostenibilità alimentare l’appello per la quaresima dell’arcivescovo di Westminster, cardinale Vincent Gerard Nichols, presidente della Conferenza episcopale di Inghilterra e Galles. Secondo quanto riferisce il settimanale cattolico britannico «The Tablet», parlando dopo il lancio di un nuovo progetto della Caritas per promuovere attività sostenibili a Wembley, nel nord di Londra, il porporato ha affermato che il bisogno sociale potrebbe aumentare «significativamente» nei dodici mesi che seguono la Brexit (ovvero dopo il 29 marzo, al momento termine ultimo entro il quale il Regno Unito deve lasciare l’Unione europea). Non a caso Caritas Westminster sta sviluppando un approccio sistematico a come rispondere ai problemi legati alla povertà alimentare.
«Possiamo sviluppare le banche del cibo — ha detto Nichols — ma questa è solo una parte della risposta; vogliamo anche che ci sia sostenibilità alimentare. Nel nostro paese ogni anno viene buttato via l’equivalente di 250 milioni di pasti». La questione da affrontare dunque è duplice: accanto alla povertà provocata dalla disoccupazione o da uno stipendio insufficiente, con il conseguente impatto su ciò che le persone mangiano, c’è «il cattivo uso del cibo», lo spreco. Gisele Henriques, consulente di sostenibilità alimentare presso la Catholic Agency for Overseas Development, spiega che «il motivo per cui milioni di persone in tutto il mondo hanno fame non è semplicemente la carenza di cibo, ma anche la mancanza di accesso agli alimenti. Per molti, questo è dovuto alla povertà, ai conflitti, ai cambiamenti climatici e alle politiche commerciali ingiuste che allontanano gli agricoltori locali dai loro stessi mercati. Oggi produciamo più cibo a persona che mai, ma un terzo di esso è sprecato», afferma l’esperta, ricordando al riguardo la denuncia di Papa Francesco in un famoso tweet: «Il consumismo ci ha indotto ad abituarci allo spreco. Ma il cibo che si butta via è come se fosse rubato ai poveri e agli affamati».
Una portavoce dell’arcidiocesi di Westminster ha confermato a «The Tablet» che quest’anno l’appello del cardinale per la quaresima, che comincerà mercoledì 6 marzo, inviterà a raccogliere fondi per rafforzare il lavoro già svolto nelle parrocchie e nelle scuole intorno alla povertà alimentare. Nichols, la sera in cui i parlamentari hanno votato contro la proposta di ritardare la Brexit per impedire al Regno Unito di uscire dall’Europa senza un accordo, ha dichiarato di essere consapevole che molti cattolici sono angosciati dalla profonda incertezza attorno al dibattito: «A Londra in particolare abbiamo un alto numero di parrocchiani che provengono da paesi europei e la loro ansia è tangibile». Per questo il presidente dell’episcopato ha accolto favorevolmente la decisione del governo di abbandonare la tassa di registrazione per gli europei che hanno chiesto lo status di regolare nel Regno Unito, ribadendo l’impegno della Chiesa a utilizzare le sue scuole e parrocchie per spiegare e facilitare il processo di registrazione.
Ma c’è un altro problema che va di pari passo con il tema, più generale, della povertà, ed è quello dell’alloggio. In molti casi coloro che hanno difficoltà ad arrivare alla fine del mese vivono in case indegne di questo nome. Sono in difficoltà soprattutto i giovani, a causa dei prezzi troppo alti. Nel novembre scorso, durante l’assemblea plenaria, dopo aver esaminato un rapporto di Caritas Social Action Network, i vescovi di Inghilterra e Galles hanno rivolto un invito speciale alle charities cattoliche affinché pongano il problema della costruzione di nuove case e quello dei senzatetto in cima alle loro priorità fino al 2030, in linea con gli obiettivi di sviluppo sostenibile delle Nazioni Unite. La Chiesa, è stato osservato, deve compiere uno sforzo particolare per aiutare a risolvere la cronica mancanza di abitazioni a prezzi ragionevoli nel Regno Unito. Una lettera è stata inviata dai presuli ai responsabili di diverse associazioni nelle varie diocesi incoraggiandoli a concentrarsi su tale obiettivo. La Chiesa in Inghilterra e Galles ha intrapreso da tempo un’opera di carità per i senzatetto, e non solo, aiutando le persone anche ad approfondire il loro attaccamento relazionale nelle comunità.
«La portata e l’urgenza delle sfide abitative oggi, e per la prossima generazione, non sono nuove. La Chiesa cattolica — si legge nel rapporto — non rivendica la competenza in materia di politica abitativa, ma riconosce che l’opportunità di soggiornare in alloggi adeguati offre le chiavi per un’autentica crescita umana tra individui e famiglie e per la vita in comunità pacifiche e prospere».

Insediata in Francia la commissione d’inchiesta sugli abusi. Al centro l’ascolto delle vittime

L'Osservatore Romano
«Il punto di partenza del lavoro è la presa di coscienza della sofferenza delle vittime. Il loro ascolto sarà quindi una delle nostre missioni centrali»: Jean-Marc Sauvé, 70 anni, ex vice-presidente del Consiglio di Stato (la più alta giurisdizione amministrativa della Repubblica), chiamato dalla Conferenza episcopale francese a guidare la Commissione indipendente d’inchiesta sugli abusi sessuali nella Chiesa, spiega così al quotidiano «La Croix» quale sarà uno dei principali obiettivi dell’incarico. Voluto a novembre, al termine dell’assemblea plenaria, il nuovo organismo sarà operativo entro tre mesi. C’è da stabilire prima il metodo di lavoro per la raccolta di informazioni e la riunione inaugurale, tenutasi ieri, venerdì 8, ha affrontato proprio questo punto. «Cominceremo con l’analizzare i rapporti redatti dalle varie commissioni che hanno affrontato l’argomento in altri paesi, poi, come struttura sovrana e indipendente, definiremo l’insieme delle nostre competenze», che, ha fatto capire Sauvé, non potranno prescindere dalla consultazione delle fonti di stampa, dall’audizione di vittime, testimoni, inquisiti in procedimenti giudiziari, dallo studio degli archivi, soprattutto quelli della Chiesa (diocesi e congregazioni religiose).
La commissione — incaricata dai vescovi di fare piena luce sugli abusi sessuali commessi su minori e persone vulnerabili a partire dagli anni Cinquanta del secolo scorso, nonché sull’eventuale copertura dolosa degli stessi — è composta da ventidue membri, dodici uomini e dieci donne, di età compresa fra i 38 e i 75 anni, credenti di diverse confessioni e non credenti, esperti di varie discipline (avvocati, magistrati, docenti di diritto canonico, teologi, medici specialisti, professionisti nel campo sociale e dell’educazione, studiosi di storia e scienze umane). Ci sono, fra gli altri, Jean-Pierre Rosenczveig, ex presidente del Tribunale dei minori di Bobigny, Philippe Portier, storico e sociologo delle religioni e della laicità, e Astrid Kaptijn, docente di diritto canonico all’università di Friburgo. È stato lo stesso Sauvé a sceglierli, «senza alcuna interferenza o direttiva dei responsabili ecclesiastici». Non ci sono sacerdoti né religiosi. Lavoreranno tutti a titolo gratuito. I rapporti finanziari sono retti da una convenzione tra Sauvé e il presidente dell’episcopato, monsignor Georges Pontier. Non sono stati fissati tetti al budget ma, viene assicurato, questo legame finanziario «non lede in alcun modo l’indipendenza della commissione».
Si tratta dunque di un organismo eclettico, pluridisciplinare: «La commissione è diversa per opinioni religiose e filosofiche. Vi figurano credenti cristiani e non, così come agnostici e atei. La diversità generazionale è ugualmente importante. Le vittime uscite allo scoperto sono soprattutto trentenni e quarantenni; bisognava che questa fascia d’età fosse rappresentata. La grande diversità è una garanzia della sua indipendenza», conclude il presidente, sottolineando che «non soccomberemo alle critiche di essere “troppo lontani” o “troppo vicini” alla Chiesa cattolica», poiché «saremo indipendenti e onoreremo il nostro mandato fino in fondo e con serenità». François Devaux, presidente di una delle associazioni delle vittime, non ha tuttavia nascosto la propria diffidenza: «Quando vediamo la difficoltà che le vittime hanno di parlarci, sono scettico sul fatto che essi prenderanno contatto con una commissione di esperti, di tecnocrati».
C’è chi si rammarica che a far parte del nuovo organismo non sia stato chiamato alcun rappresentante delle vittime, mentre padre Stéphane Joulain, psicoterapeuta specializzato nel trattamento degli abusi sessuali del clero, fautore di una maggiore sensibilizzazione del problema nei seminari, ha dichiarato che spetta alla Chiesa ma soprattutto allo Stato «far uscire la verità» su questo «problema di pedocriminalità». Joulain è una delle cinque personalità cattoliche ascoltate mercoledì scorso in Senato dalla Missione comune di informazione che indaga sui crimini sessuali sui minori nel loro insieme. Dalle audizioni sono emersi spunti e riflessioni interessanti. Suor Véronique Margron, teologa, presidente della Conferenza dei religiosi e delle religiose, ha posto l’accento sul silenzio generale che ha accompagnato per anni questa dolorosa vicenda e che può essere superato dalla previsione di organismi indipendenti «in grado di evidenziare le disfunzioni».

Perché nessuno sia scartato
L’arcivescovo Paglia sulle cure palliative
Nelle cure palliative «nessuno viene mai scartato e abbandonato»: è il messaggio lanciato dall’arcivescovo Vincenzo Paglia, presidente della Pontificia Accademia per la vita, nel convegno organizzato venerdì 8 febbraio, a Milano, «per la promozione di una cultura di responsabilità sociale», insieme con la Fondazione Floriani e l’Istituto nazionale dei tumori. I temi della fragilità, dell’importanza della relazione nel momento della cura e tanto più nell’approccio delle cure palliative, la necessità di una pianificazione dentro una organizzazione a misura d’uomo, sono state le questioni all’ordine del giorno.
«Sappiamo bene — ha fatto presente l’arcivescovo — quanto le cure palliative siano state protagoniste del recupero di un accompagnamento integrale del malato nell’ambito della medicina contemporanea». Del resto, «prendersi cura del malato è un passo indispensabile da compiere» ha affermato monsignor Paglia, indicando l’urgenza di promuovere appunto le cure palliative e facendo in modo «che entrino a pieno titolo tra le discipline universitarie».
Purtroppo, ha rilevato, «sappiamo quanto sia scarso il numero di studenti sia di medicina sia dei corsi infermieristici, intenzionati a dedicarsi alla cura dei malati in prossimità della morte e soprattutto delle persone anziane». Si tratta di invertire questa tendenza facendo «crescere la stima per le cure palliative, anche perché aiutano a riscoprire la vocazione più profonda della medicina che consiste prima di tutto nel prendersi cura».
Monsignor Paglia, in questa prospettiva, ha presentato l’impegno e gli obiettivi del servizio che sta svolgendo la Pontificia Accademia per la vita. E, anzitutto, ha rilanciato lo sforzo «per promuovere una cultura delle cure palliative a livello della Chiesa cattolica ovunque nel mondo». A questo scopo, ha ricordato, «abbiamo già realizzato vari congressi su questo tema sia in Italia che in Europa, negli Stati Uniti, nel mondo arabo, in Qatar, e altri sono in programma».
Inoltre è ormai «pronto un libro bianco — ha annunciato l’arcivescovo — che vorremmo inviare alle università cattoliche e agli ospedali cattolici nel mondo, per poter far crescere non solo la conoscenza ma soprattutto la pratica delle cure palliative». Il convegno di Milano si inserisce in questo percorso: «Ci accomuna la volontà di promuovere una “cultura palliativa”, sia per rispondere alla tentazione che viene dall’eutanasia e dal suicidio assistito, sia soprattutto per far maturare una “cultura della cura” che permetta di offrire una compagnia di amore sino al passaggio della morte».
A rilanciare i contenuti suggeriti dall’arcivescovo è stato don Tullio Properzio, cappellano all’Istituto dei tumori: «La dimensione spirituale all’interno del dibattito scientifico, da quando si è dato ascolto alle persone ammalate, è un aspetto che interessa ogni clinico sia che si dichiari credente oppure non credente, non essendo necessariamente limitata alla sola dimensione religiosa».

Dalla Francia una lettera dei superiori della famiglia religiosa di San Giovanni. Impegno nella lotta a tutti gli abusi
L'Osservatore Romano
In seguito agli articoli apparsi su vari mezzi d’informazione dopo la conferenza stampa di Papa Francesco durante il volo di ritorno dagli Emirati Arabi Uniti, i superiori della famiglia religiosa francese di San Giovanni — che riunisce i fratelli, le contemplative e le suore apostoliche — hanno scritto il 7 febbraio scorso una lettera contenente alcune precisazioni in proposito. Partendo dal presupposto che il direttore ad interim della Sala stampa della Santa Sede «ha spiegato in particolare che il Santo Padre ha usato il termine schiavitù per intendere “manipolazione”, una forma di abuso di potere che si riflette anche in un abuso sessuale», la missiva chiarisce che la comunità sciolta a cui il Pontefice ha fatto riferimento era l’Istituto San Giovanni e San Domenico, composto da suore che avevano lasciato la comunità contemplativa di origine.I firmatari del documento, fratel Thomas Joachim, priore generale dei fratelli di San Giovanni, suor Paul-Marie, priora generale delle suore contemplative di San Giovanni, e suor Claire de Jésus, priora generale delle suore apostoliche di San Giovanni, «condannano ogni situazione di abuso sessuale e di potere e riaffermano il loro impegno, in comunione con Papa Francesco, nella lotta contro gli abusi», in primo luogo esprimendo «la loro profonda vicinanza soprattutto a quelle donne che, offrendo generosamente la loro vita a Dio, si sono ritrovate vittime». Infatti «sin dal 2013 il priore generale dei fratelli di San Giovanni aveva rivelato di sua iniziativa che il fondatore, padre Marie-Dominique Philippe, aveva “compiuto gesti contrari alla castità nei confronti di diverse donne adulte che accompagnava”». Ma è l’intera famiglia religiosa di San Giovanni che «condanna gli abusi sessuali e gli abusi di potere del fondatore, riportati da testimonianze convergenti», sottolineando che «tra le donne vittime di tali abusi c’erano delle suore». Non solo: vi è pure l’ammissione che «testimonianze riguardanti suore o ex suore riferiscono anche di abusi commessi in passato da alcuni fratelli», con la conseguente rassicurazione che «sono già state pronunciate sanzioni e si stanno esaminando alcuni casi», visto che «le autorità dei fratelli di San Giovanni sono determinate a far sì che tutti i casi di abuso siano affrontati in conformità con le direttive della Chiesa cattolica e con le leggi civili».
Del resto, per esempio, il ramo maschile da diversi anni sta «mettendo in atto diverse misure per prevenire e gestire le situazioni di abuso: miglioramento del discernimento alla vocazione, formazione dei fratelli alla maturità affettiva, alla gestione dei casi di pedofilia e di abusi sessuali, l’applicazione di procedure (validate dal Vaticano) che riguardano in particolare il rinvio d’informazioni alle autorità giudiziarie, la creazione di una commissione — composta anche da laici — incaricata di esaminare ogni testimonianza, ammissione o denuncia di un comportamento di abuso». E anche sul fronte femminile «le ottanta suore contemplative che formano attualmente la comunità hanno sempre scelto di collaborare con le decisioni delle autorità della Chiesa prese nel 2009 e di mettere in atto le riforme richieste all’epoca che vertevano su questioni di governo e d’influenza». In particolare si evidenzia che «la comunità delle suore di San Giovanni non è mai stata sciolta» e che le religiose in disaccordo con questa linea «sono uscite dalla comunità» e «nel 2014 hanno fondato una nuova» realtà «in Spagna, con il nome di “Maria Stella Mattutina”, dopo che una prima comunità con il nome di “San Giovanni e San Domenico” era stata sciolta da Benedetto XVI nel 2013». Ed è questa l’istituzione cui ha fatto riferimento durante la conferenza stampa dei giorni scorsi Papa Francesco, il quale nel 2014 — ricordano i firmatari della lettera — «ha escluso definitivamente dalla vita religiosa quattro ex responsabili che si erano opposte alle decisioni delle autorità della Chiesa e avevano promosso la scissione». Con la specificazione che «da diversi anni, sia le sorelle sia i fratelli» di San Giovanni «sono impegnati in un lavoro di ricostruzione e di rettifica di ciò che doveva essere corretto, in piena collaborazione con Roma e con l’aiuto di persone esterne», perché «tengono a ribadire la loro volontà di accogliere e di mettersi a disposizione di ogni persona che è stata vittima di abusi da parte di un membro della famiglia San Giovanni». Al punto che è possibile scrivere alla Commission Sos Abus, istituita dai fratelli di San Giovanni, all’indirizzo sos.abus@stjean.com o a quello (paroledevictimes@cef.fr) messo a disposizione dalla Conferenza dei vescovi francesi.
L’assicurazione conclusiva espressa dalla famiglia San Giovanni è che, rivolgendo «uno sguardo di speranza al lavoro di verità che si sta compiendo nella Chiesa», si sta «facendo tutto il possibile perché i suoi luoghi di vita consacrata siano una casa sicura per tutti».

We were thrilled to find this Antique French Mannequin...and it's 'little sister' (also listed elsewhere in the shop)...recently at a brocante in Provence. It was made by Stockman of Paris and is so stamped on the lower front.

This mannequin has that sought-after severely pinched 'Wasp Waist' so fashionable in 'Belle Epoque' France when ladies squeezed themselves into torturous corsets to achieve an hour-glass figure with ample busts and hips and the tiniest possible waist...how they breathed is a mystery!

This mannequin was likely originally black but the baize fabric has been coated a very long time ago in a deep rusty red and we love it that way!

This antique dressmakers form is in very good condition for its age but there are signs of use and age with some small splits and tears here and there in the fabric. One of the wood discs at the shoulders is missing and there is a repair of fabric at the front abdomen but since the fabric was coated red this is not hugely noticeable. The wooden stand which is nicely turned is in good condition, however the screw that tightens the ring which holds the mannequin at a chosen height is missing it's 'wing'. The screw still turns easily and holds the ring in place.

And there seems to be a small bit of wood, or something, rattling around inside the torso when it is up-ended and which we have not been able to remove...a tiny mystery.

++What a wonderful addition to your vintage clothing shop, for vintage clothing photography...or as a companionable addition to a vintage style bedroom....

          'The Broom That Brings Doom' — Nigerians React To Giant Broom Project In Abuja      Cache   Translate Page      
Nigerians have taken to social media to express disappointment over the construction of a giant broom in front of the Abuja City Gate.

Residents of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) noted that as of Thursday, it wasn’t clear what was being constructed when they began, but afterwards, it turned out to be the broom symbol of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

A Twitter user, @adex0057, uploaded a photograph of the broom taken as on Thursday, and he tagged the Guinness World Records (GWR) in his caption.

The caption read: “WORLD LARGEST BROOM Attention: @GWR This is the Largest Broom anybody or group has ever [erected] anywhere in the world. This is work of some group of volunteers of @OfficialAPCNg . It deserves your recognition and honour. Location: Abuja; Date: 02/07/2019.”

The tweet by @adex0057 was retweeted by Rauf Aregbesola, immediate past Governor of Osun State.
However, the presence of the APC broom has been greeted by anger and in some cases, disappointment.
@dondekojo wrote: “These ones are installing a giant broom in front of a national monument? How insane is this?" while @Shawnife wrote: “These people don’t even rate us again. A huge broom has now been mounted in front of the City Gate.”

While @Biisi96 wrote: “What’s the meaning of this useless broom they are erecting at city gate? So this is the madness they were up to. I was confused as to what it was yesterday evening. But alas it was buffoonery in the making. I’m tired abeg,” while @TheIgboWolf wrote: “The broom doesn't represent anything to Nigerian or Nigeria. It's a symbol of a party, just one political party. But it has been mounted at the front of FCT. Again, this country is not for all of us.”

@Waynetipsy_ng tweeted: “#2019elections APC Mounts Gigantic Metal Broom At City Gate, Abuja. The broom allegedly cost a whooping N250million.”

A tweet by @dulzura_2badtz read: “Just a random question from a curious observer... so is this broom a national monument or it’s just for the election purpose and how much was budgeted for this?”

@ify_zoe wrote: “World Largest Broom. You are even tagging Guinness Book of Records without shame. If Buharism isn't a mental case I wonder what it is,” while a tweet by @NotACoquette read: “The broom that brings doom.”

@Mohd_abdul_’s tweet read: “Going to the FRANCE capital you would see... The ‘EIFFEL TOWER’ but coming to Abuja, the Nigeria capital you would end up seeing the ‘BIG BROOM’”, while @afrispheric wrote: “Imagine driving into the capital city of a country in the 21st century and one of the first things you see is a BROOM. Not a rocket. Not a super computer. Not a freedom fighter. But a dirty looking broom.”

          DUTY BOUND:      Cache   Translate Page      
Conservatism & the politics of prudence: On Edmund Burke, Russell Kirk & the conservative ethos. (Daniel J. Mahoney, January 2019, New Criterion)

As Kirk was careful to note, Burke never made natural right the direct foundation of political life and political judgment. That was too revolutionary and too doctrinaire, and it risked separating the rights of man from one's equally important duties as a human being and member of the social order. But he defended a traditional system of morals indebted to Aristotle, Cicero, the Fathers of the Church, and Hooker and Milton. Burke claimed no originality in this regard, as Kirk points out. But through his eloquence and fiery Irish spirit, he "put new warmth into their phrases, so that their ideas flamed above the Jacobin torches." He thus renewed old and enduring wisdom, what Kirk, following Eliot, called the "permanent things." It is in this limited sense that Burke's politics of prudence perfectly coheres with the "natural law," understood as moral verities that largely transcend historical change and cultural variation. As Greg Weiner argues in an impressive forthcoming book on Burke's and Lincoln's views on prudence, Burke believed that political judgment was essentially circumstantial but that moral truths came closer to reflecting unchanging truths about human nature and the divine and natural "constitution of things." So understood, Burke is both a partisan of prudence (not to be confused with fearful timidity or "the false, reptile prudence" that Burke denounced in the Letters on a Regicide Peace) and the moral law as articulated by the moral traditions of the Christian West and by other civilized peoples. This moral consensus is related to "the universal constitution of peoples" mentioned above. To affirm a politics of prudence is not to deny a common "moral constitution" that belongs to man as man. In that limited sense, Burke is as "universalist" as Aristotle or St. Thomas Aquinas. And Burke adds, as Kirk is right to observe, a note of Christian humility before the moral inheritance which is among the great gifts of classical and Christian civilization.

Kirk made two additional contributions to Burke studies, both of some significance. Kirk stressed that Burke was among the first to see the limits, all the limits, of social contract theorizing. Choice and consent play some legitimate role in politics (guided by humane and prudent judgment), but they should never obscure obligatory duties that are not a "matter of choice." Parents, citizens, neighbors, and children all have "burdensome duties" (as Burke puts it in An Appeal from the New to the Old Whigs) that they are obliged to carry out with grace and a sense of responsibility. Likewise, Kirk noted, Burke believed that every member of a political community was "obliged to obey the laws and sustain the state." Choice plays an important role in politics (and marriage), but it cannot be the basis of every aspect of life. Duty is as fundamental as consent. Kirk stresses the multiple ways in which Burke's conservative liberalism was decidedly un-Lockean: while defending the rights of property, Burke never believed that civil society arose from a pre-political "state of nature." Men and women are not truly born "free and independent," and the only true social contract is "between those who are living, those who are dead, and those who are to be born." That is the great primeval contract that Burke so eloquently invokes in the Reflections on the Revolution in France. In the quarrel of the ancients and the moderns, he sides with the classics and the Christians against full-blown modern "individualism." [...]

For Kirk, Burke was above all the prudent and humane advocate of ordered freedom. Liberty entails limitation, order demands respect for the liberty and dignity of human beings, especially those long rooted in the social and political life of a free people such as the English.

===========================================

In order to select a specific record collection on FamilySearch, go to  https://familysearch.org/search/collection/list and use the "Filter by collection name" feature in the upper left-hand corner and use keywords (e.g. "church england") to find collections with those keywords.

My friend, Marshall, has come up with a way to determine which collections are ADDED, DELETED or UPDATED.  Thanks to Marshall for helping me out here!

Each one of the collections listed above has a Research Wiki page (use the "Learn more" link).  It would be very useful if the Wiki page for each collection listed the dates for when the collection was added as a new collection and the dates for major updates also.

          Will Macron's 'Great National Debate' Help Defuse France's Yellow Vest Unrest?      Cache   Translate Page      
Stung by criticism, and with his government rocked by ongoing protests from yellow vest demonstrators, French President Emmanuel Macron last month launched a nationwide series of community conversations — what his government calls a grand debat national or "great national debate ." Since mid-January, groups of mayors, local leaders and ordinary citizens have been meeting to hear and respond to complaints, grievances and suggestions. The public forums are set to continue through March 15. More than 3,000 have been held already, in rural hamlets and big cities. The French president is hoping the meetings will help quell the yellow vest crisis by allowing citizens to express their anger and frustrations. He has promised to take all ideas and suggestions into account for the second half of his term. Macron has personally attended several of these gatherings, and on Monday, visited the town of Évry-Courcouronnes , just south of Paris, for the first meeting in les banlieues, France's

El autódromo de Alta Gracia será testigo de la primera fecha de la temporada 2019 del Súper TC2000 el próximo 7 de abril. A su vez, también estará presente como costumbre la Fórmula 2.0 y la Fiat Competizione.

El elegido fue el autódromo de Alta Gracia para arrancar la era turbo con la nueva motorización y los cambios reglamentarios para la categoría más tecnológica. También fue el último en recibir al Súper TC2000 con el Coronación de 2018 y el bicampeonato de Facundo Ardusso a bordo del Renault Fluence.

Luego de 93 carreras con los motores ingleses V8, la categoría tendrá su primer gran examen ya que estrenará los motores de nueva generación 2 litros, cuatro cilindros turbo, que tendrá como proveedor a la firma francesa ORECA.

Otros lugares que visitaría el Súper TC2000 junto con la Fórmula 2.0 y Fiat Competizione durante este año serían Las Termas de Río Hondo, El Zonda y Villucum de San Juan, y el callejero de Santa Fe, entre otros escenarios que aún restan confirmarse.

          Presentato il programma degli eventi 2019 della Fondazione Sorrento. Momento clou la mostra dedicata a Matisse      Cache   Translate Page      
Sorrento - È stato presentato questa mattina nella sala consiliare del palazzo municipale di Sorrento il programma ufficiale degli eventi organizzati per il 2019 dalla Fondazione Sorrento, presieduta da Gianluigi Aponte e guidata dall’amministratore delegato Gaetano Milano, in collaborazione con il Comune di Sorrento del sindaco Giuseppe Cuomo. Un fitto cartellone di appuntamenti, ospitati nella splendida cornice offerta da Villa Fiorentino, storica dimora del rinnovato corso Italia di Sorrento, che spazia dalla grande arte alla musica, dall’artigianato alle tradizioni locali, senza dimenticare l’enogastronomia. Programma che ha preso il via già ai primi di febbraio con la terza edizione della mostra “ SORRENTO IN ARTE ” a cura dell’Associazione Pittori Sorrentini presieduta da Raffaele Iaccarino. La collettiva resterà aperta al pubblico fino al 27 febbraio, con ingresso libero. Nei giorni 2, 3 e 4 marzo si terrà, invece, la XVI edizione della “MOSTRA DELLA CAMELIA” , curata come sempre dal Garden Club Penisola Sorrentina presieduto da Anna Acampora. Saranno esposte sia piante provenienti dai giardini della penisola sorrentina che camelie in vaso. Quest’anno nel giardino di Villa Fiorentino sarà messa a dimora una splendida camelia rosa chiamata “Antonella”.
 
L’ultimo giorno sarà dedicato ai ragazzi delle scuole. Ingresso libero. Dal 9 marzo fino al 6 aprile è la volta dell’antologica di pittura di Nico Taminto dal titolo “NEL SEGNO DELL’UOMO – A REGOLA D’ARTE”. Saranno esposte le opere realizzate dall’artista in 50 anni di attività. Ingresso libero. Dal 10 aprile all’1 maggio in mostra le eccellenza artigiane della penisola sorrentina nella manifestazione “MANU FACTUM”. Gli associati di PenisulArt, guidati da Marcello Aversa, porteranno ognuno un proprio pezzo per rappresentare tutte le sezioni: arte presepiale, liuteria, oreficeria, moda, ceramica, ceroplastica, intarsio, ebanisteria, metalli, arte povera, vetri artistici, fotografia, cucito, pittura, modellismo e sandali. Ingresso libero.Dal 3 al 6 maggio una tre giorni dedicata a “L’ARTE DELLA TESSITURA E DEL RICAMO ”, rassegna curata dalla Cooperativa “La Sirena arl” presieduta da Carmela Scala, in collaborazione con l’Associazione “Il Punto Sorrento”. Ingresso libero. Dall’11 maggio al 9 giugno è in programma la terza edizione del “SyART FESTIVAL – SORRENTO LOVES ART ”, evento organizzato da Leone Cappiello e Rossella Savarese che ha cadenza annuale e per il 2019 vedrà la partecipazione di 40 artisti rappresentanti 11 nazioni. Si arriva così a quello che sarà l’evento culturale di maggior interesse in costiera sorrentina nel periodo estivo-autunnale. Dal 15 giugno al 17 ottobre, infatti, la sede della Fondazione Sorrento ospiterà la mostra “HENRI MATISSE – IL MAESTRO IN SCENA”, che vedrà esposte nelle sale della splendida dimora del nuovo corso Italia, un centinaio di opere che ripercorrono i 35 anni di carriera del grande pittore francese. Attenzione particolare è rivolta all’impronta che l’artista diede al teatro ed alle creazioni ad effetto. L’ingresso è a pagamento. Nel periodo compreso tra i mesi di maggio ed ottobre, inoltre, Villa Fiorentino ospita una serie di spettacoli. In particolare, è in programma la rassegna “CANTANAPOLI ” che dalla tarda primavera fino all’autunno accompagnerà il pubblico in un viaggio alla scoperta della musica partenopea. A luglio torna l’appuntamento con il “LEMONJAZZ ”. Da agosto a settembre, inoltre, arriva la terza edizione di “ Summertime ”, contenitore di eventi che spazia dalla musica alla danza, dal cabaret al musical. Come di consueto l’ultima parte della programmazione sarà dedicata alla festa più magica dell’anno, “NATALE IN VILLA FIORENTINO”, con ricche novità tutte da vivere. Dal 1 dicembre 2019 al 6 gennaio 2020. “Il messaggio che vogliamo lanciare - ha spiegato il sindaco di Sorrento Giuseppe Cuomo nel corso della presentazione - è l’invito a tutte le realtà che operano sul territorio di lavorare in sinergia per promuovere l’immagine culturale e turistica della nostra città ed il programma delle attività curate dalla Fondazione Sorrento rappresenta proprio un esempio di come le diverse eccellenze possano concorrere nel far conoscere la nostra cultura nel mondo. Al tempo stesso invito quanti volessero mettersi in gioco a lanciare le loro proposte: siamo sempre aperti a nuove iniziative”. “Abbiamo realizzato un programma condiviso con l’amministrazione comunale per la città e per i visitatori - ha aggiunto l’amministratore delegato della Fondazione Sorrento Gaetano Milano -. Siamo riusciti a mettere insieme esperienze diverse in grado, però, di fare rete per la crescita culturale del territorio, con Villa Fiorentino che si conferma attrattore di eventi anche in un’ottica di destagionalizzazione visto che si parte a febbraio per terminare dopo le festività natalizie. Tutte manifestazioni di alto livello, con il momento clou che sarà la mostra estiva dedicata al genio di Henri Matisse. Colgo l’occasione anche per sottolineare la proficua collaborazione con gli istituti scolastici del territorio che ci affiancano nei vari appuntamenti grazie ai progetti di alternanza scuola-lavoro. Infine voglio annunciare l’accordo che abbiamo sottoscritto con l’associazione Marevivo per realizzare iniziative volte alla tutela dell’ambiente ed alla salvaguardia del territorio e per garantire una migliore qualità della vita, soprattutto alle giovani generazioni”. “Portiamo la mostra di Henri Matisse a Sorrento proprio nell’anno in cui ricorre il 150° anniversario della nascita del grande artista francese - ha spiegato il professor Gabriele Accornero Ceo di Bridgeconsulting pro e curatore dell’evento -. A Villa Fiorentino esporremo circa 150 opere che ripercorrono l’intero suo percorso artistico con un tema dominante: la teatralità”. Alla presentazione ha preso parte anche una delegazione di studenti dell’Istituto polispecialistico “San Paolo” guidata dalla dirigente Paola Cuomo. Sempre per l’alternanza scuola-lavoro la Fondazione Sorrento ha stipulato convenzioni con il liceo scientifico “Gaetano Salvemini” della dirigente Patrizia Fiorentino e con il liceo artistico “Francesco Grandi” con la dirigente Daniela Denaro.

"I’m seldom interested in the domestic life of strangers." Does that mean that all that interest reovolves around neighbor's"?😀 It appears to me that the habits of the left have a tendency to destroy families and destroy nations. The latest action we see from the left on this score is the killing of babies even after they are detached from the mother. I just want to make sure that people know that at least in the recent past if not so today both in France and Switzerland infants born below a certain weight or height (which criteria belongs to which country I do not remember) are left to die on the table.

Reporter’s Diary from Venezuela
This is the personal view of the correspondent on today’s life of Caracas.
Translated by Scott

Day one…
Our Air France flight was grounded in Paris for 5 hours; no one wants to land in Venezuela in the middle of the night, due to the “dangerous criminal situation.” The airliner is half empty, the passengers, judging by nervous conversations, are only Venezuelans. A taxi driver, while leaving the airport, locks the doors, and sweetly warns that after dark, bandits scatter spikes on the roads and rob the stranded cars. “Oh, don’t worry, Amigo, I have an old car. They are not interested in old, cars.” That’s where you understand why Caracas is ranked first in the ranking of the most dangerous cities in the world. It’s too late for supper, but I at least want to exchange my US dollars for Venezuelan bolivars. I ask my cab driver. He violently shakes his head: “No, no, no. I do not mess with such things, it’s illegal!” “Whatever,” I laugh at him. “Tomorrow, someone will take the dollars, maybe even with my hands torn off.” I was wrong…
The following morning, no one at the hotel wants to look at my dollars. The hotel employee tells me to go to one of the official “exchange stores” but honestly adds: “only Americans, or complete jerks go there.”
In Venezuela, the official dollar exchange rate is 200 bolivars, and the “black market” exchange rate is 2,715. And if you exchange your currency in a bank, then according to this calculation, a bottle of ordinary water will cost 330 rubles, and a modest lunch in an inexpensive cafe—7,000 rubles per person. Judging by the stories on the Internet, in Venezuelan people should simply kill each other for dollars, but this is not the case. There is also other things different from perception. On western news, it is shown that demonstrators fight with police daily, tens killed, hundreds wounded, the sea of blood. But in Caracas, all is quiet. In an afternoon, people are sitting in cafes and idly sipping rum with ice, while maintenance crews sweep the streets. It turns out that the world ‘s leading TV new sources (including CNN and the BBC) show some fantasy film about Venezuela. “Demonstrations?” yawns Alejandro, a street vendor selling corn. “Well, Saturday there will be one, sort of. On one end of the city will be a rally of opposition supporters, and on the other, Maduro supporters. The police keep them separate to prevent fights.” Amazing. You browse the Internet, you turn on the TV, and you see the revolution, the people dying on streets to overthrow the “evil dictator Maduro.” And you come here, and nobody cares.
Then it got even better. Never in my life have I had so many adventures while trying to exchange one currency for another. The country has a problem with cash money, long queues waiting for the ATM, and even the street dealers of “currency” have no “efectivo,” as they call cash. I wander inside a jewelry store and ask if they want some “green.” The answer is “No.” Everyone acts like law-abiding citizens. I am told that police recently started arresting people for private exchange, that’s why people don’t want to associate. One owner of the jewelry store almost agrees. “What do you have? Dollars? No, I won’t take that.” “Why now?” “I take only the Euros …dollar, man, is the currency of the aggressor, they try to tell us how to live!”
Damn it! I have money in my pocket, and I can’t even buy lunch! Finally, a certain woman, nursing a baby in a workplace, very reluctantly agrees to exchange 2,200 bolivars for a “buck.” I want to curse her out, but I have to live somehow. Bolivars seem like a beautiful, unattainable currency, which hides all the benefits of the world, that’s why they are so hard to get. I’m nodding in agreement. The woman calls somewhere, and asks to wait. After 15 minutes she tells me that “there is a problem.” Of course, money is not to be found. Her man couldn’t withdraw them from the ATM, everywhere the ATMs are on a strict daily rate. “President Maduro is fighting for the strengthening of the national currency,” explained the nursing mother. “We all use our cards to pay for everything.” I don’t know how it works, but yesterday an exchange rate was 3,200 bolívars for 1 dollar, and today the “bucks” fell to 2,700. I have started to realize that in the very next few days I’ll starve to death with dollars in my pocket. A unique fate, perhaps, that has never happen in history.
In the next kiosk cash for gold place I am offered a plastic debit card loaded with local money, and then I would try my luck withdrawing bills from neighboring ATMs. “Or, maybe not, if you’re not lucky.” Well, of course. By the way, an attempt to buy a SIM card for the phone also fails. They don’t sell them to foreigners, you need a Venezuelan ID card. Yes, and I have nothing to pay for it. The feeling is that the dollar is a gift that no one wants. Sadly, I walk by stores. People come out of there with packages of eggs, bread, packs of butter. The range is not like in Moscow, of course, but again, if you believe the news on TV, Venezuela is suffering from a terrible famine, supermarkets are empty, and people are fighting each other for food. Nothing like that. There are queues, but not kilometers long. In general, television stations in the United States and Europe (and ours too) created their own Venezuela, drawn like a terrible cartoon. I walk into a cafe at random. “Will you accept dollars for lunch?” I ask hopelessly. “Yes, at the rate of “black market” they whispered to me. “But the change will also be in dollars…sorry, no bolivars at all…we’ve been hunting for them ourselves for weeks.”
My first day in Venezuela is over. How unusual. I’ve been here for 24 hours, and I’ve not held a Bolivian bill in my hand. Oh, but there will be more…

Day two…
60 liters of gasoline here cost five cents, and a basket of basic food products — 50 rubles (about 90 cents).
“The gas station,” my driver reaches into his purse and takes out a banknote of 2 Bolivar. The exchange rate of the Venezuelan currency changes every day, and today it is 2 580 bolivars per one dollar. In Russian money, that is 10 cents. “We must now fill a full tank,” says the taxi driver. 60 liters of gasoline cost 1 bolívar, but we give the 2 bolivars bill, because there is no 1 bolivar bill.  I can’t believe that is a full tank of fuel costs FIVE CENTS? “And how much can you even fill at this price?” “Once a day for every citizen. And it’s enough for me.” All the way to the center city, the driver scolds President Maduro, and tells me how much he loves America, and how it will be good when the “guy with mustache” is finally overthrow by the Americans. I start to think that I don’t feel sorry for Maduro at all. He really corrupted en entire country with such generous handouts. And they are willingly take, but no one says “thank you,” just that they want more and more.
On the street there is a long line into a “social supermarket,” a place you can buy 400 types of goods at the solid low prices. These shops were established by the late President Hugo Chavez “to fight inflation and protect the poor.” The stores are funded by the Venezuelan government. The buyer comes with a passport, gets a number, and waits in line until they are allowed to enter and buy a certain set of products. The selection isn’t very impressive, only the essentials: chicken, bananas, pineapples, sausages, milk. A box of these food items costs of equivalent of 50 rubles. CNN and the BBC show videos of Venezuelans wrapped in rolls of toilet paper and sadly wandering across the border with Colombia. The toilet paper is found in absolutely every store, and without any problems. I am once again simply amazed: Western TV news is something from Hollywood, they are not reporting but making fantasy blockbusters. On the BBC website I read that hungry Venezuelan children after school go to take a look at the street vendors cooking meat. I’ve been all over the town. Restaurants, cafes, eateries, during the lunch hour are crowded, and people look well-dressed. The mass hunger, the Western media paints for us, doesn’t exist in reality.
I take a few pictures inside the supermarket, and I am immediately approached by the workers or “Maduro followers.” “It’s forbidden to take pictures here.” “Is this a military facility?” “Leave or we’ll call the police.” “Listen, everywhere on TV they tell us that there is hunger in Venezuela. I want to prove that the reality is different.” “We are not interested, we just work here: leave immediately!” I started to understand perfectly well why Nicolas Maduro lost the information war. Hugo Chavez was often praised even in private conversations, but even Chavez supporters find little positive to say about Maduro.  When people protested against Hugo’s endless nominations as the head of state, he used to meet them with the open arms, smiling and saying : “Guys, what’s the problem? I’m your President, I love you, let’s sit down and talk!” Maduro doesn’t have this image of being one of the guys. He is not able to communicate with the public, and his assistants, like the employees of the social store, can only push and ban and threaten with the police.
On the streets, provincial farmers sell fruits and vegetables: mango, tomatoes, cucumbers. All about the same price of 25 rubles per kilogram. Here, a dozen eggs from street vendors is 4,800 bolivars or about 130 rubles, and that is not cheap. During the peak of oil prices, when a barrel of oil was sold for $150, Venezuela lived on the principle of a rich fool. To develop domestic production? No, what is that nonsense?  We can buy every triviality abroad. Even the managers of the oil production weren’t local, they hired specialists from Europe, and paid them a lot of money. Food imports into the country reached 95 percent. And now the situation is not too different. When I order my meal in a cafe (incidentally, still paying in dollars, all attempts to change dollars to bolivars failed), I get excellent pork. “Where is it from?” “From Colombia.” “And chicken?” “From Brazil, that’s why it’s so expensive.” Even flour for bread comes from neighboring Guyana. Chavez and his successor Maduro wanted to be “people’s presidents,” handing out money left and right. But then oil prices collapsed, food shortages began, and people rebelled. People demand as before: cheap food in supermarkets, gasoline for nothing, and they don’t want to hear anything more or less.
“Chavez was a great guy!” says a fan of the former president, 75-year-old Raul Romero, dressed in a red “chavist” shirt. “Maduro is nothing like him! There is speculators on the streets, he does nothing. In his time, Chavez arrested the dealers raising food  prices, closed their shops, confiscated land from landowners, and gave it to the people. We need a firm hand, a real dictatorship!”
In the TV world, Maduro is portrayed as a dictator and executioner, although in Venezuela, he is openly scolded for being meek; they draw cartoon of him, and insult him as much as they can. But who cares about the truth? Much more colorful to show the suffering for the toilet paper.
Day three…
“I got robbed by a COP for my phone. I’m talking on the cell phone outside, he walks over to me, pokes in my side with his gun. “Give me your mobile.”I don’t understand immediately, and automatically continue the conversation. He cocks his gun, and says, “Kill.” I give him my phone. It’s still good, I love being robbed by cops. They are not bandits from the “Barrios,” the poor neighborhoods in the mountains, who can shoot you first and then rummage your corpse’s pockets. I’m lucky, I’ve lived in Venezuela for 27 years and this was the first time I was “hop-stopped.” A lot of people get robbed every year.
I am talking to Mikhail, a citizen of Russia living in Venezuela since the beginning of the nineties. He helps me move around Caracas and instructs me on how to visit the local slums.
“You don’t have protection? Oh, who would doubt that. Then leave your watch, phone, and camera at the hotel. Take some money for a taxi, you also have to have some cash in case you get ambushed, otherwise they might get offended and kill you. Sometimes, people get shot in an arm and a leg, that survivable.”
After such a nice story, I still go to the “Barrios.” It is there that the supporters of President Nicolas Maduro mainly live. According to CNN and BBC, impoverished people in Venezuela are revolting against the government. Nothing can be further from the truth; it’s a wealthy middle class that goes to demonstrate. Maduro is applauded in poor neighborhoods, because the President gives their residents free food sets enough for a month and gives free (!) apartments. Formally, they belong to the state, but people live in them for generations.
“I will cut a throat for the President,” a heavily-tattooed man smiles menacingly, and introduces himself as Emilio. “Who else would give me food and a ‘roof ‘ for free? He is our father and benefactor.” Maduro deliberately does not touch such people, which is why crime in Caracas gushes over the edge. I am advised not to stop on the street to look at anything, but just to keep going, otherwise bandits will have time to look closely at me. That’s why they have constant robberies on the streets, plus the police and the national guard can easily take away your favorite things. No one can be happy about all these. “I love Russians,” told me the businessman Carlos while conversing over coffee near the Plaza de Bolivar. “But you’d better send Maduro economic advisers. Teach him a lesson! He doesn’t know anything about economy. He has one recipe for everything, to give more money to the poor, more free apartments, free food, free gasoline, to build a full communism here. But with this, sorry, any state would collapse.”
The opposition rally in the Western part of Caracas is huge, at least 100 thousand people gathered. The protesters are friendly to me, Russia here is respected. It is not considered an enemy. Zero aggression at all… and then I  wonder about what I see on CNN, videos of the opposition being rolled into a pancake by tanks. The police keep the neutrality, it disappears from the streets, to not give a cause to provocateurs. People are happily waving flying in the sky military helicopter. Many-in t-shirts with the American flag, a man passes by, holding a hand-written poster with the altered slogan of Donald Trump -“Make Venezuela great again.” “Do you love the U.S.?” “Yes, adore it!” “I remember you already had a pro-American President in 1993, Carlos Andrés Pérez. He sharply raised the price of gasoline, 80% of the goods were imported, he drove the republic into billions of IMF debts. People went to demonstrations, and Pérez drowned them in blood, killing 2,000 people…then he fled to America.”
The man freezes, with his mouth open. Finally, he gets the gift of speech back. “I hope this time the pro-American President will be different.” “Are you sure?” “Sorry, I have nothing to say.” Asking the girl from the opposition how she feels about the US: “The US is our neighbor, let them change the power here.” “In countries where the US changed power like Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan, hundreds of thousands people were killed. Are you ready for this?”
Again, she pauses and sighs.
“No, no, no. We are not Africa or Asia. All will go peacefully. Venezuelans will not kill each other.”
Where the opinions splits is the question of whether the free gasoline and free food packages will remain with an American-instilled government. Many are sincerely sure that the “freebies” will remain under a new president. How else? The minority that recognizes that state gifts will be canceled say that they at least “we will be free.” As I said, the protesters are mostly well-dressed, well-off people. By the way, the leader of the opposition, Juan Guido, also has no real economic program promising to “quadruple the oil production.” No one thinks that after that price will fall four times. In short, I get a feeling that neither the President, nor the opposition, know anything about the economy in Venezuela.
The demonstrations in support of Maduro take place at the other end of the city, to prevent the opponents from fighting. “You Americans are insolent!” screamed an old woman in a red t-shirt rushing towards me. “Bastards! You should be handed on a first tree! Cheers to socialism!” “I’m Russian, grandma.” The old lady recoils.  “Sorry, please.” “Don’t get that upset, senora.” Many people gathered here are joyful, dancing and singing.
A soldiers stands in front of me and doesn’t allow me to take any pictures. Not just me, but also other passers-by. “You can’t take pictures here.” “Says who?” “President Maduro.” No, Maduro is definitely doing everything he can to be disliked. Those gathering here are poor, blue-collared workers and farmers from the suburbs. I am interested , honestly, were you brought here on the busses? “Yes, he did!” says one grandfather, proudly displaying a portrait of Che Guevara. “But I would walk here for Maduro! It’s a lie that we were paid to be here.” Other people applaud him happily. I shake hands. “Russians are welcome! Venezuela loves you, you’re home.”
The day of rallies is over. The maintenance crews came to the sidewalk, strewn with plastic bottles, crumpled packs of cigarettes, and other debris left after by a cloud. At the entrance of an old house, old people drink coffee. “They say that today some general has defected to the side of the opposition,” says one of them. “Some significant person.” “What’s this guy’s name?” “Who knows?” Venezuela is split in half. And the situation there may change at any moment.

CA vs the EU? Yes it is. In CA's central valley people have no major airports near them, so they drive to either SF or to an airport in LA County, the EU has had passenger trains since at least the end of WWII, major airports in France? Just 5, unlike in the US Europe did not abandon passenger rail, so Apples to Oranges, the equivalent of fwys didn't start in France until about 1960 and they were Toll roads. Maybe it did not stop driving, but it is not quite the same as here, as HSR did slow it down and is good for the environment(I have a merit badge in Environmental Science). In any case CA will get more money for HSR from the Democratic House as the House has an Infrastructure Bill and HSR is a part of it, so Billions most likely will be coming our way, HSR is far from dead and Amtrak is being asked to stop in More towns. For those areas where trains don't or can't go, electric automobiles will be just fine. https://www.bing.com/search?pc=IC07&ptag=ICO-089ec2f9&FORM=INCOH1&q=major+airports+in+France https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autoroutes_of_France

          Tav: Tria, "l'Italia sia affidabile, sulle grandi opere servono certezze"      Cache   Translate Page      

a"Dobbiamo dimostrare di essere affidabili" e "ristabilire la fiducia nei confronti dell'Italia, la fiducia dei cittadini e degli investitori italiani e stranieri": lo ha affermato il ministro dell'Economia, Giovanni Tria, in un'intervista alla Stampa, in cui ha ribadito l'importanza della Tav: "Non voglio entrare nel merito della questione costi/benefici, del resto ho detto più volte che ritengo sia un'opera utile da realizzare ed è chiaro che ci possono essere opinioni contrarie", ha spiegato. "Quando si parla di infrastrutture, e dunque degli investimenti a lungo termine necessari all'Italia, c'è bisogno di certezze". 

"La realtà è che non si possono attirare investimenti se quando si firmano i contratti può essere ritenuto legittimo pensare che un governo, qualunque esso sia, li possa rimettere in discussione, magari modificando il quadro legale in modo retroattivo", ha sottolineato Tria, "dalla fiducia degli investitori dipende la competitività dell'Italia e la sua crescita reale. Dobbiamo essere attenti a queste dinamiche". 

E lo scontro tra Italia e Francia? Per tria si tratta solo di "una incomprensione passeggera dovuta a difficoltà di comunicazione". L'Italia non ha "nessun motivo economico di contrasto con la Francia", ha aggiunto, "certo, loro hanno una politica industriale più aggressiva della nostra ma questa è la caratteristica del sistema francese, è più compatto e organizzato" ma "ci siamo sempre trovati su posizioni più vicine ai francesi rispetto ad altri Paesi".

          Comment on Six Nations 2019: England team to play France by Don P      Cache   Translate Page      
Ok, Andy, but do you know these for facts? I mean how does this tally with most Welsh, English this teams' exit from Europe? Are they not fit enough? Also, as there's more money in the French game, they tend to buy in droves of off shore players which suppresses the 'natives'' opportunities @ Int'al level. Additionally, is the Fr coaching, selection up to it? For example playing centres in the back 3 & bringing back Bastareaud don't seem like sound choices to me. You may have a point, but I suspect that there's more to it than just fitness?
