          Exclusive: Pompeo to meet oil executives, push U.S. crude exports, Iran policy - sources      Cache   Translate Page      

Exclusive: Pompeo to meet oil executives, push U.S. crude exports, Iran policy - sourcesU.S. Secretary Of State Mike Pompeo will meet with top oil executives before he addresses a conference on Tuesday, seeking to get them to help the administration's effort to boost crude exports to Asia and to support its policy of isolating Iran, according to three people at two companies briefed on the agenda. The outreach represents a significant new effort to sway industry executives to the Trump Administration’s “energy dominance” agenda that seeks to advance diplomatic and policy objectives through rapidly expanding U.S. oil and gas exports. The effort has won success in convincing nations including China, Poland, Japan and South Korea to purchases more U.S. oil and natural gas.



          Cold War (2018)      Cache   Translate Page      

As the first scene of Cold War by Paweł Pawlikowski fades in, Polish folk music fills the ears. As the descendant of Polish highlanders, I have heard these songs since birth. They’re something you can usually only truly experience in person; yet, as the melancholy men belt out their traditional tune, there seems to be no wall between the viewer and the performers. The cinematography, too, is stunning. The movie is in black-and-white, yet each frame is so well-defined it could stand alone in an art gallery. With each scene retaining visual freshness, Pawlikowski does justice to the awe-inspiring landscape of Poland.

Through this gloomy ambiance Pawlikowski tells a story of tumultuous romance. It begins with auditions for the newly formed Mazurek Ensemble, a touring highlander music ensemble, of which Wiktor (Tomasz Kot) serves as both director and composer. One woman, Zula (Joanna Kulig), stands out from the rest of the auditionees: she shares in the communal misery, yet has some unique drive. Wiktor is taken aback after she sings a Russian folk song and reveals a breathtaking voice: “She has something in her,” Wiktor says. “Energy. Temperament. This is something original.” It’s clear he isn’t just talking about her musical talent — he’s fascinated by her as a whole. So begins their love story.

Image from Film Comment

There are several time jumps in the movie, sometimes of more than five-year periods, but rather than causing a disconnect, the shifting raises the stakes — between every endearing reconnection, every catastrophic fight, every uncontrollable tragedy, the viewer knows time is rapidly running out. From the most painful moments in the film — such as when Wiktor waits in vain on a street corner in Berlin for Zula to run away with him, or when he travels to Yugoslavia to see her but is dragged from the Mazurek performance and deported before they can even speak — an inevitable question arises: how many years will pass until they see each other again?

The viewer yearns for the interludes between the misery, the moments when Zula and Wiktor are together. Despite their constant flings with others, Zula’s oath at the beginning of the movie that she will be with Wiktor “always, everywhere, and until the end of the world” never comes under any doubt. No words are needed to show this: as they gaze into each others’ eyes across a crowded reception hall, the viewer can see their pure passion for each other taking control. Even as the disasters caused by the Cold War and by their interpersonal conflicts worsen exponentially as the movie progresses, they keep finding their way back to each other, and the tragically enchanting ending immortalizes this love.

Phenomenal acting and directing make such a captivating story possible. Both Kot and Kulig put on spectacular performances and have strong, genuine chemistry. The rest of the cast is just as brilliant, and even characters with no lines entirely sell each scene. Pawlikowski clearly thought through every aspect of this movie in extraordinary detail.

Though enchanting, this seems to be a world where no one smiles, no one stirs, no one chats. Sure, there are moments of dancing, laughter, and gaiety, but they are infrequent, and not all of these moments provide total reprieve from the sorrow that paralyzes every single character. But it so well depicts authoritarian Communism’s draining effects on a country that by all rights should be happy and full of life, sparing the movie from any expository dialogue to show that things are not as they should be.

By any standards, Cold War is virtually impeccable. It is one of those rare films that makes tears roll both because of artistic pureness and authentic sadness. Beautiful through and through, Cold War stays with the viewer long after the credits roll.


Cold War (2018) was originally published in The Yale Herald on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

          Review by Marina: The Things We Cannot Say by Kelly Rimmer      Cache   Translate Page      

A searing page-turner of family secrets and the legacy of war by the Top 10 bestselling

Australian author of Before I Let You Go



2019 Life changed beyond recognition for Alice when her son, Eddie, was born with autism spectrum disorder. She
must do everything to support him, but at what cost to her family? When her cherished grandmother is hospitalised,
a hidden box of mementoes reveals a tattered photo of a young man, a tiny leather shoe and a letter. Her
grandmother begs Alice to return to Poland to see what became of those she held dearest.
WWII Alina and Tomasz are childhood sweethearts. The night before he leaves for college, Tomasz proposes
marriage. But when their village falls to the Nazis, Alina doesn't know if Tomasz is alive or dead.
2019 In Poland, separated from her family, Alice begins to uncover the story her grandmother is so desperate to tell,
and discovers a love that bloomed in the winter of 1942. As a painful family history comes to light, will the struggles
of the past and present finally reach a heartbreaking resolution?
Inspired by the author's own family history, The Things We Cannot Say unearths a tragic love story and a family secret
whose far-reaching effects will alter lives forever.

The Things We Cannot Say by Kelly Rimmer will be published by Hachette Australia on 26 February 2019, Trade Paperback RRP $32.99




4.5 stars

First off, I want to start by saying that I am not one to usually read historical fiction but this story was so intriguing I couldnt help but be drawn into it.
I really felt for the characters and the hardships they faced but all in all I thought the book was well written with a storyline that caused me to tear up in parts.
I loved reading the back story to Alina and what she went through during the war. I also rather liked the way her granddaughter Alice goes in search of her past. Goodness me, I was certainly hooked during the time she travels to Poland. It is very reminiscent of when I travelled with my family to a small town in Poland on the German border, so in a sense I could really relate to this!! Hence the tearing up!
I really did enjoy this book, it certainly goes to show what hardships everyone around us can face. The author has done a great job capturing the feel of the story!

Thanks to Hachette AU for the Paperback copy for review!

в 1982 году состоялась премьера мультипликационного фильма «Закон племени». Производство: Союзмультфильм, 1982. Режиссер: Владимир Пекарь. Сценаристы: Д.Энтина, Владимир Пекарь. Художник-постановщик: Татьяна Колюшева. Оператор: Кабул Расулов. Композитор: Эдуард Артемьев. По мотивам произведений африканских художников школы Пота-пота.

в 1982 году в резне Рио-Негро было зверски убито 177 майя: 70 женщин и 107 детей. В шесть часов утра армия вошла в поселение одной из общин Рио-Негро. Солдаты врывались в дома, разыскивая мужчин, которые в это время скрывались в горах. Не найдя никого они заставили танцевать женщин и детей, так, как они "танцевали для партизан". Молодых девушек подвергли изнасилованию. После, солдатня заставила подняться индейцев в горы, периодически избивая их, во время этого 3-х мильного пути. Когда колонна достигла вершины Пакокшом Хилл, солдаты расстреляли всех, сбросив трупы женщин и детей в яму, завалив ее ветками и камнями. Это массовое убийство была лишь частью большой резни в Рио-Негро (1980-1982). В 1978 году в условиях гражданской войны, правительство Гватемалы продолжила свою программу экономического развития, в том числе строительство плотины Чиксой. Финансируемая в основном за счет Всемирного банка и Межамериканского банка развития, плотина была возведена в Рабиналь, департамент Баха-Верапас, в местах исторически населенных майя-ачи. Для завершения строительства необходимо было переселение общин, которые отказались переселяться со своих земель в окружающие нагорья. Правительство пообещало уничтожить их. В период с 1980 по 1982 год военизированными отрядами было убито около 5 000 человек.

По мотивам произведений Важи Пшавелы. Деревенский парень Беруа безнадежно влюблен в Софо, дочь достаточно зажиточного крестьянина, мечтающего выдать ее за богатого или именитого человека. И поэтому, когда порог его дома переступил разорившийся князь, отец Софо был несказанно рад. Правда радовался он до тех пор, пока не понял, что князь — хвастливый лгунишка, бездельник и попрошайка, и, к тому же, вряд ли его любимая дочь будет счастлива, если не выйдет замуж за Беруа. Фильм поставлен по произведениям грузинского писателя Важи Пшавелы: «Дареджан», «Холера помогла», «Сельские картинки».

с космонавтами Леонидом Кизимом и Владимиром Соловьевым на борту.
Космический корабль типа "Союз 7К-СТ", сер. №21Л выведен на орбиту с параметрами: наклонение орбиты - 51,6 град.; период обращения - 89,7 мин.; минимальное расстояние от поверхности Земли (в перигее) - 240 км.; максимальное расстояние от поверхности Земли (в апогее) - 298 км. Началась первая основная космическая экспедиция на станцию "Мир" (продолжалась 125 суток). 20 февраля 1986 года в Советском Союзе был произведен запуск орбитальной научной станции "Мир", пришедшей на смену орбитальным станциям "Салют". Новая станция представляла собой базовый блок для построения многоцелевого постоянно действующего пилотируемого комплекса со специализированными орбитальными модулями научного и народнохозяйственного значения. В дальнейшем к станции были пристыкованы и начали работу модули "Квант", "Квант-2", "Кристалл", "Спектр" . Строительство до недавнего времени единственного в мире постоянно обитаемого орбитального комплекса было полностью завершено 26 апреля 1996 года, когда к "Миру" был пристыкован пятый, последний модуль дооснащения - "Природа" со сложнейшей научной аппаратурой. Первая долговременная экспедиция прибыла на станцию на корабле «Союз Т-15» (космонавты Леонид Кизим и Владимир Соловьев) и работала на орбите с 13 марта по 16 июля 1986 года. Во время этой экспедиции был совершен уникальный эксперимент: перелет со станции "Мир" на станцию "Салют-7" и обратно на "Союзе Т-15". Это был первый опыт, закладывающий основы межорбитальных перелетов и обслуживания в будущем космических баз-станций. Космонавты провели ряд работ на станции "Салют-7", в частности, эксперимент по разворачиванию трансформируемой фермы "Маяк". Эксперименты по развертыванию больших конструкций являлись наиболее важными среди работ НПО "Энергия" и ферма "Маяк" - один из таких экспериментов, который проводился совместно с ИЭС имени Е.О.Патона. При возвращении обратно на станцию "Мир" космонавты захватили с собой часть исследовательского оборудования, так как работы на прежней станции «Салют-7» были уже прекращены. За время пребывания на орбитальной станции «Мир» космонавты осуществили два выхода в открытый космос продолжительностью три часа 50 минут и пять часов. Были проведены всесторонние испытания элементов конструкции базового блока, настройка бортовой аппаратуры. 16 июля в космическом корабле «Союз-Т-15» космонавты вернулись на Землю. Всего на комплексе «Мир» было проведено 28 долговременных экспедиций, на нем побывали 105 космонавтов и астронавтов из 11 стран мира.

Сараево и прочие районы Югославии, между 1950 и 1952 годами. Ряд значительных событий в жизни одного семейства показаны глазами младшего сына Малика, чуткого и ранимого 10-летнего мальчика, подверженного приступами лунатизма. Его отец Меша обещает любовнице, гимнастке и авиаторше Анкице, развестись с женой, но все время откладывает развод; в результате Анкица доносит на него за едва ли крамольные слова. Меша арестован сразу же после церемонии обрезания его сыновей Мирзы и Малика; в аресте принимает участие Зийо, старший брат его жены. Долгое время жена и сыновья ничего не знают о судьбе отца, но потом встречают его на шахте, где тот работает, а позднее приезжают к нему в город Зворник на реке Дрине, где он получает не такую тяжелую работу на центральной электростанции. Там Малик влюбляется в девочку своего возраста, но та вскоре умирает от заболевания крови. Походы Меши по проституткам в соседнем городе ставят цельность семьи под угрозу. В Зворнике Малик, лучший ученик школы, на торжественной церемонии, на которой собрался весь город, вручает мэру "пионерский жезл". Меша с радостью и огромным облегчением узнает, что его срок истек. Прекрасным июльским днем 1952 года в Сараево празднуют свадьбу младшего брата матери Малика - прекрасный повод для того, чтобы всей семье собраться вместе. Меша говорит Зийо, что когда-нибудь сможет забыть о его поступке, но пропустить не сможет никогда. Анкица, вышедшая замуж за Зийо, ложится впостель со своим бывшим любовником Мешей, а потом безуспешно пытается покончить с собой. Зийо уходит в запой. Дед Малика, немой свидетель всех этих событий, именно в день свадьбы решает отправиться в дом престарелых, устав от политических распрей, раздирающих ег семью и его страну.

          Dozens Of Countries Ground Boeing's 737 Max 8 Following Deadly Crash In Ethiopia       Cache   Translate Page      

Airline regulators across the globe are grounding Boeing 737 Max 8 planes, joining an ever expanding list of countries banning the plane from their airspace. This comes in the wake of Sunday's deadly plane crash in Ethiopia that killed all 157 people on board. The cause of the crash is still under investigation.

The latest move came Tuesday from the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) when it announced a suspension of two Boeing 737 Max models in all flights in the European bloc.

The wave of bans follows the Civil Aviation Administration of China's decision on Monday to order the country's airlines to suspend all commercial operations of their Boeing 737 Max 8 jets.

The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration does not plan to ground the jets in the United States but is facing growing pressure to do so.

The FAA announced Monday that it would require a series of design changes for the Boeing 737 Max fleet.

In the U.S., Southwest Airlines uses a fleet of 34 Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft and is not planning any change in service. Likewise, American Airlines, which operates 24 of the planes, is not planning to ground them.

The full list of countries and airlines that have announced a ban is below:

—Argentina (Aerolíneas Argentinas)
—Australia
—Austria
—Belgium
—Brazil (GOL Linhas Aéreas)
—Cayman Islands (Cayman Airways)
—China
—Ethiopia

          Dziady (poem)      Cache   Translate Page      

Summary:


{{Template}}

'''''Dziady''''' ({{IPA-pl|ˈdʑadɨ}}, ''Forefathers' Eve'') is a [[poetic drama]] by the Polish poet [[Adam Mickiewicz]]. It is considered one of the greatest works of both Polish and European [[Romanticism]]. To [[George Sand]] and [[Georg Brandes]], ''Dziady'' was a supreme realization of Romantic drama theory, to be ranked with such works as [[Johann Wolfgang Goethe|Goethe]]'s ''[[Faust]]'' and [[George Gordon Byron|Byron]]'s ''[[Manfred]]''.

The drama's title refers to ''[[Dziady]]'', an ancient [[Slavic peoples|Slavic]] and [[Lithuania]]n feast commemorating the dead (the "forefathers"). The drama has four parts, the first of which was never finished. Parts I, II and IV were influenced by [[Gothic fiction]] and [[Byron]]'s poetry. Part III joins [[historiosophy|historiosophical]] and individual visions of pain and annexation, especially under the 18th-century partitions of Poland. Part III was written ten years after the others and differs greatly from them. The first to have been composed is "Dziady, Part II," dedicated chiefly to the ''[[Dziady]]'' Slavic feast of commemoration of the dead which laid the foundations of the poem and is celebrated in what is now [[Belarus]].

A ban on the performance of the play was an aspect of the [[1968 Polish political crisis]].

          Arabs-Muslims or White Europeans .. who are really racist ?!      Cache   Translate Page      

In April 2014, The British newspaper ‘The Independent’ have reported that Saudi Arabia has criticised Norway's human rights record during the United Nations' Universal Periodic Review, in which 14 States are scheduled to have their human rights records examined. Russia meanwhile called for Norway to clamp down on expressions of religious intolerance and and criticised the country’s child welfare system.

The Norwegian foreign minister commented on this criticism saying “It is a paradox that countries which do not support fundamental human rights have influence on the council, but that is the United Nations,”

Months later, The Egyptian government took an advantage of the civilians killing incidents which some American police officers was involved in to direct a sharp criticism toward what they consider as a clear human rights violations on the American soils. Meanwhile, the Egyptian police wrote on their Facebook official page giving a “tips” to the american police officers about how to handle the peaceful demonstrations without causing human lives loses, the thing which made some activists making fun of the Egyptian government’s contradictory behavior, as it have a bad reputation concerning human rights and that the police and army have killed hundreds of protesters and detainees as a result of an excessive use of violence and physical torture in the past few years !!


I always memorize this incidents and other similar situations when some Arabs and Muslims start accusing the west of practicing racism and discrimination against immigrants, because many of those who take the lead in this criticism do not care at all about discrimination, racism and all kinds of human rights violations, and some of them practice such violations and praising it without shaking single eyelid. but they forget about that and direct those accusations toward the west with what they are themselves doing as they are trying to throw dust in eyes..
The western world are always chased by its colonial history which was marred by an explicit racism practices and violations of human dignity in the countries which were occupied during the past centuries. and despite the fact that all of those crimes and violations became part of a history irrelevant to our current reality, and despite the fact that such practices were condemned, regretted and apologized for by the past colonizing countries, however, some young Europeans who had no connection at all with such violations away from that they read and heard about it inherited a guilt feeling from their ancestors; a feeling which being fed by the increase of the immigration from the post colonized countries to Europe, where some Europeans feel guilt combined with a moral responsibility for any actual or possible sufferings might those immigrants go through, and they got a painful feeling that those inherited guilt is impossible to be erased or forgotten. Their daily life and their dealings with others is a personification of this inherited guilt. I met with many of them whose sensitivity toward racism and discrimination touch even some things might not be noticeable by those who is most likely targeted with discrimination and racism!!

Last December, I went with a friend of mine who is french living in Berlin to watch “The magic flute” opera in Berlin opera house. That was my first time i watch this show in theater after i watched it many times on screens. The show started and ten minutes passed before my friend started expressing intense anger and resentment over the appearance of an actor on the stage with a face painted in black as he played one of the opera’s roles. My friend told me that he is not able to continue the show and that he will wait for me outside.

On our way back my friend start explaining to me why he was angry. he said that he can’t accept when a white actors painting their faces in black to characterize black people and he consider it racist and humiliating. He also claimed that the opera houses don’t accept black people to act on the stage. I asked him if he would feel better if this role was played by a real black man? He silenced a bit and he was apparently thinking before he answered refusing playing such role at all and saying that the text characterizing the black people with a stereotypical brutal and bloody roles and that's why he is opposing playing this role basically which means in his opinion that the opera houses should stop showing such classic works to avoid promoting racism or they can modify the script and cleaning it from all suspected racism that included.

This friend was not the only one who adopt such position, but some Europeans i know do not care much about some brutal violations against human rights practiced in the middle east and Africa and have something to do with traditions or religion as they care about an opera show, movie or a piece of literature contained a suspected racism, and sometimes they blame their own people accusing them with that they helped on the occurrence of such violations because that the colonization prevented those who is committing such violations from getting rid of such traditions and thoughts that justify it.

I don’t underestimate here any racist or discriminatory attitude no matter how small, and i think that all racism suspicions should be addressed and opposed before it grows up and become an acceptable reality and prevalent habits as its in the middle east. and i also believe that we shouldn’t tolerate or underestimate any kind of violation against human rights no matter how small it is and wherever it happened and i think that all of those things should be confronted strongly and firmly to guarantee that it will not be repeated in the future. and i also urge everybody who have been through a situation where his rights were violated and/or he have been discriminated against to stand strongly against it and not keep silent, and also those who witness such situations to take a strong actions against it who knows they might became a victims of similar situations one day.
Here comes an Important question about whether those who practice racism, discrimination and violations against human rights without shaking an eyelid are also entitled to accuse others of what they do ?! and if those accusations was based on a real grounds should we take it in consideration and react toward it seriously ?! should we react or give attention toward an allegation made by a terrorist who is for example supporting IS or Al-Qaeda and/or fought under their flags, brutally tortured and beheaded people, that he has been subjected to a violation of his human rights in jail, like if he was not allowed to leave his cell or to meet with his family or talking to them in phone or if he claimed that the police practiced racism and discrimination against him?!

As a result of a long bloody colonial history, the term “white man” has been associated with racism and brutality, even after those practices turned into just a words in books and exhibits in museums, the great grandparent’s shame is still chasing their descendants who are mostly abandoned this colonial patriarchal racist legacy and distanced themselves from it.
Ironically, Those who are supposed to be a historical victims for the white man’s brutal activities and now they are accusing Europeans all the time with racism, discrimination and violating the basic human rights in every occasion are not hesitating at the mean time of practicing racism and discrimination without fearing of being accused of it. It seems like racism and discrimination became an exclusive accusations goes only for the white people, while any other people no matter how cruel and barbaric their crimes and atrocities is, they have an eternal impunity protecting them from such accusations just because they used to be a spoiled historical victim for the white man who hold the eternal shame which he inherited to his grandsons and their offspring !!

After i moved to Norway as a political refugee, I started attending some lessons at Nygård skole organized by the Introduction center for refugees in Bergen as part of The Introduction program for refugees. One of those lessons was called in Norwegian “Tema måte” where there was a Norwegian person from an Iraqi origins leading it, talking in Norwegian while several translators sitting in the room and telling us what he say in our languages. Different topics was opened for discussion in this meeting which was held every Tuesday, and in the first meeting he talked to us about racism saying its widely scattered in Norway and the right wing had stopped organizing demonstration against immigration policies but he believe that they work now underground aiming to expel all the immigrants who came originally from Africa and middle east outside Norway and that we should stick to being part of this society and that he personally does not talk about his ethnic origin as he insists on being just Norwegian to stop anyone who dare to question his belonging to Norway. Then he opened a discussion with us about the manifestations of racism which probably encountered the people who are attending this meeting. Those manifestations according to what the students who was attending this class said was ranged between an uncomfortable eye contact with a person passing by in the street and reach its maximum with a Yemeni guy he said that he felt uncomfortable because he believe that Norwegians avoid sitting next to him in the bus marking that as its a clear racism and discriminatory attitude. The teacher reacted to what students told agreeing on that its a clear signs of the presence of blatant racism and discrimination against immigrants in the Norwegian society!!!
But this teacher who was showing us his concern towards what he sees as growing phenomena of racism and discrimination as he felt it in the Norwegian society and his fear of the rise of the far right wing, did not hesitate during another lesson to warn us of thinking of marrying Norwegian women , why ?!! because they are in his own words “ Very expensive” and “ cost a lot of money” . In another occasion he used the term “ buy a woman” as euphemism of “Marrying a woman”. In another lesson he was telling us a story about a Pakistani man who couldn’t “buy a woman” to marry her as he have no enough money so he found its relevant to buy a goat instead since the goat is much cheaper than a woman !! all that happened inside a program supposedly it made for integrating immigrants in The Norwegian society and that the Norwegian government spend a lot of money on it !! What a great integration results are expected from such program !!!
What which many Europeans who pay yet the price of their ancestor’s follies may not know that if we compared the suspicious racism - if any- has currently practiced toward immigrants with the racist practices committed by those with wheat skin color toward who have darker skin in the middle eastern countries they might start rethinking of their perceptions about themselves and the others.
In Saudi Arabia and all Arab Persian gulf states for example, people still using the word “Slave” (a’bd) in their daily conversations to refer to every individual with darker skin, the word “slave” replace the word “ dark skinned” or “ black” , so they say for example : My “Slave” friend John did this and that ….. , Or: I bought this phone the shop where the “Slave” John works ….., without feeling that they utter a racist expressions. such expression you could found it used naturally even by many people there who claim that they support human rights values and and oppose racism, but they couldn’t get rid of the racism hidden inside daily normal talks.
In Saudi Arabia also, the authorities launched a campaign in the fourth of November 2013 targeting the Ethiopian workers, arresting them claiming that they are violating the immigration laws. This campaign have been accompanied with waves of attacks and assaults launched by normal Saudi citizens armed with swords and choppers. They attacked the places where Ethiopian workers living with their families, beating them up and torturing them severely, recording that with their mobile cameras. Some workers died under torture, other killed after the police shot them in the streets. Some of the Saudi citizens who took part in this assaults proudly documented what they did with video recordings uploaded later on YouTube !!



And in Egypt where i was born and lived until the age of 27, the racism against black-skinned people is really clear and unmistakable for anyone’s eye or ear. Mothers for example get so angry if their sons or daughters thought about marrying a dark skin person, and most people agree on a certain beauty standards which according to it people with darker skin are considered ugly. The movies and dramas put Nubians, who is originally from southern Egypt and characterized by brown skin and local language in a stereotyped roles as servants and doormen.
and yet those who have darker skin color are not allowed to work as news readers or as presenters in the Egyptian state television.
In 2005, the Egyptian police killed 23 Sudanese refugees (according to some Sudanese activists the real number is 56) in the last days of the year while they was clearing a peaceful sit-in organized in front of the UNHCR headquarters in Cairo as those refugees was demanding being sent to a third country. The police broke up this peaceful sit-in after they got complaints from the residents of the surrounding area who claimed that they have been affected by the presence of those Sudanese people in their high classy neighbourhood saying that they “smell bad” and “having sex in the streets as animals”. After the police got involved and the sit in had cleared the sit-in which was resulted in killing of children, youth and old people of both sexes, those high classy residents expressed their satisfaction for what has happened.

In September 2007, i was spending my four years prison sentence on charges connected to my writings at Borg El-Arab Prison near Alexandria, when the prison received a large number of prisoners who came from different African countries, mostly from Sudan and Eritrea, have been arrested and sentenced to one year imprisonment by a military court on a charges of entering the country illegally through the southern borders with Sudan intending to travel to Israel.
The prison administration was treating them in an inappropriate way for human beings, they were housed in large numbers inside a number of cells which can barely fit half of them, and they wasn’t allowed to go out in the sun, the thing which made them start a mass hunger strike demanding a better treatment.
The prison administration was looking always down at them and when they decided to start their hunger strike the officers couldn’t understand how they could think about that and they thought there is something else stand behind their hunger strike decision. The officers was creating an a collective image about them; within this image’s frame they was not much more than a poor people escaped from their countries because there is famines over there with lack of food and drinkable water and that they are supposed to feel grateful to the prison administration as they are throwing them food like animals. In the end they found a solution for this dilemma when they accused me of inciting them on hunger strike just because i was talking to them in English which was apparently enough evidence to prove such a charge! and as result of that i have been punished and subjected to physical torture and spent 10 days in a solitary confinement cell deprived from having enough food and water more than half a loaf of bread with a small piece of cheese on it and a bottle of water for each day.

I often hear some stories told by immigrants in Europe tell about racism and discriminatory situations they have been through, most of those people came from Arab and Muslim countries, and of course i can’t show uncertainty toward such stories as its part of those people’s experiences which differ from person to another. But if i talked about my experience here as an immigrant in Europe with a Middle eastern physical features i can say its totally different. I can’t deny for sure that i have been exposed to some situations where i get through a suspicious discrimination when i was in poland, but it was too rare to be kept in mind for long. and after i came here to Norway i have never been through a suspicious discriminatory situation except one time when I was travelling to Slovenia last year and the man who work on KLM counter in Bergen Airport stopped me for long time claiming that Slovenia situated outside Schengen area and European union and I need a visa to travel there, which totally untrue! I showed him the list of Schengen countries on Wikipedia and that it includes Slovenia, but he insisted that Its not schengen as he tried to stop me for a while to make some phone calls perhaps to make sure that my traveling on board on this flight does not constitute a danger to the international peace and security, and i finally traveled!
With only one exception which i mentioned earlier, i didn’t feel any time that i am treated as outsider from the moment when i arrived to Bergen Airport coming from Krakow until the Moment i close this sentence with this full stop.
Finally i have to say that the racist and discriminatory practices are widely spread among Mideastern people much more than anyone can imagine, those practices targeting anyone who shows difference whether it was genetic or optional. But apparently that many people from there are unable to face themselves with their faults and crimes so they started searching like the bankrupt trader in their old notebooks for a someone pays the costs of their foolishness on behalf of them! that's why i urge my European friends to stop giving the accusations which Arabs and Muslims throw on them from their glassy houses any sort of attention that might give them a value they don’t worth to get.

I tried to stop thinking about this time I mentioned before (November 2010-Mid 2011) but I couldn't . it was too much to forgot , and I don't think I worth such a bad treatment from you.

I was too nice with you but you was reacting in a way I don't want to describe .

you sent me SMS later after I left to poland saying that you are apologizing of what you did , but you added ".. But I have my own reasons " which meaning that you justify such thing… .

That does not heal the wound which you made deeper into my heart , but I did my best to forget about it…
Anyway , we had some nice and unforgetable times earlier in 2006 , and later in the end of 2011 and until the end of 2012 when you suddenly changed and I found that its better to stay away , I was trying to be sure that you are alive by asking Michael about you when I talk to him , but in the end we stopped talking and that was your desire not my choice…
I just want to be clear about everything , earlier in 2006 I remember I told myself that I will not mind whatever you did to me , and I will forgive you whatever happened and that have not changed anytime , and will not change… I love you , I said it and I meant it , I dont care that you misunderstood me or even treated me badly because of some images about me you created in your mind… I didnt expect something back from you and I didnt thought before about being closer to you , when you wrote to me in 2006 saying :" you are my best friend ya kareem…. " it was an epic moment , and at this time I was just caring about keeping myself in this position without any ambitions of getting closer , but after I went out of jail I found you changed totally… .
I know that you have been through such bad times with bad people , but I don't think that is good excuse ( you dont need any excuses here by the way as I mentioned earlier )… .
But… ..
Rest in peace my "2006 Best friend" , I love you ..

Republicanismo às avessas: a Lava Jato e o acordo entre Petrobrás e MPF

Republicanismo às avessas: a Lava Jato e o acordo entre Petrobrás e MPF
Oacordo firmado entre a Petrobras e o Ministério Público Federal (MPF) envolvendo um depósito judicial de cerca de R$ 2,5 bilhões da petrolífera estatal para uma conta vinculada à 13ª Vara Federal de Curitiba tem lançado dúvidas sobre o autoproclamado e questionável republicanismo da Operação Lava Jato. 
No final de 2018, para evitar um processo criminal de acionistas nos EUA a Petrobras aceitou um acordo inédito em que previa o pagamento de cerca de R$ 3,4 bilhões, dos quais 20% ficariam sob responsabilidade do Departamento de Justiça norte-americano (DoJ) e da Securities and Exchange Comission (SEC) e 80% ficariam sob responsabilidade do Ministério Público Federal brasileiro.
Nesse início de 2019, o MPF deu um passo adiante apresentando diretrizes para a utilização da sua parcela na negociação. O Ministério Público pretende criar um fundo patrimonial, gerido por uma fundação privada, dirigida por um comitê de indicados da sociedade civil, cabendo ao MPF do Paraná desenhar o estatuto, compor o conselho e integrar a direção dessa nova instituição. 
O acordo abriu incertezas sobre a correção desse tipo de procedimento na governança do combate à corrupção. O valor bilionário a ser gerido por essa nova fundação é maior do que metade de todo o orçamento anual do MPF e, ao que parece, é mais expressivo do que os recursos despendidos pela Petrobras na sua gestão de prevenção da corrupção e ações de compliance. 
Os últimos dois Relatórios de Sustentabilidade (RS) da Petrobras apontam um conjunto de instrumentos criados denominados de anticorrupção, mas não especificam os valores envolvidos nessas iniciativas. No entanto, alguns outros números ajudam a elucidar o valor extremamente generoso concedido ao MPF.
Em levantamento feito pelo G1.com, em 2017, a respeito das medidas anticorrupção adotadas pelas empresas arroladas na Lava-Jato, a matéria destaca o investimento robusto da Odebrecht em medidas de anticorrupção, na ordem de R$ 64 milhões. Segundo o RS da Petrobras de 2018, todos os gastos da empresa considerados como “contribuições para a sociedade” totalizam, nos últimos três anos, cerca de R$ 600 milhões o que representa aproximadamente 25% do depósito feito ao MPF. Além disso, cabe lembrar uma matéria do Valor de 2015 que revela o valor de R$ 386 milhões em contratos firmados (vários deles para o período entre 2014 e 2020) entre a Petrobras e outras instituições para investigar e combater a corrupção. 
Mesmo considerando a importância para a sociedade do combate à corrupção, todos os números são significativamente inferiores ao depósito realizado para o MPF na cifra de R$ 2,5 bilhões.
O MPF, ao conferir a si autonomia para gerir e aplicar recursos de terceiros, pode acabar extrapolando suas atribuições e interferindo em responsabilidades dos outros três poderes republicanos; ao sugerir que os montantes negociados não podem voltar diretamente ao caixa da Petrobras pode estar deixando de tratar os acionistas e cidadãos como réus lesionados, os colocando na posição de responsáveis pela lesão que sofreram com a corrupção. 
Quando o MPF traz para si a responsabilidade de criar uma institucionalidade administrativa, jurídica e financeira, para gerir recursos de origem pública, pode estar entrando na disputa pelos fundos públicos por uma porta desprovida de mecanismos claros de controle, fiscalização e transparência tão defendidos no âmbito da Operação Lava Jato. Além disso, ao expor a Petrobras às autoridades norte-americanas se corre o risco de que sob o pretexto de aquisição de informações sobre governança da empresa brasileira circulem outros dados estratégicos da companhia, ferindo o princípio da confidencialidade.  
A proposta permanece cercada de incertezas, o que não é bom sinal para uma política que pretende combater desvios e promover transparência, tanto em termos de valores, como no próprio trabalho a ser desenvolvido pela fundação criada no interior do MPF.
A se seguir essa toada, sob o pretexto de combater poderes paralelos dentro da Petrobras e do Estado, a Operação Lava Jato caminhará para criar um Estado paralelo ao arrepio dos três poderes. É no mínimo curiosa uma situação em que a vítima, Petrobras, tenha que pagar “indenização” para o órgão acusador, MPF. Se assim o for, uma vez mais a concepção de interesse público e nacional estará sendo reduzida à noção de interesse corporativo e mercantil de uma parte do Estado. Trata-se de uma afronta às instituições republicanas e aos princípios liberais, cometida justamente por aqueles que almejaram, pretensiosamente, instaurar um certo republicanismo liberal no país. Com esse passo a Lava Jato revela ser o contrário do que parece ser.

          OCT's Young Professionals Company Presents GOOD KIDS      Cache   Translate Page      

Something happened to Chloe after that party last Saturday night. Something she says she can't remember. Something everybody is talking about.

Good Kids is the final performance for the 2018-2019 Young Professionals Company season at Oregon Children's Theatre. The Young Professionals produce three shows at OCT's YP Studio, as well as other public performances throughout the season.

Commissioned in 2014 as part of the Big Ten Theatre Consortium's New Play Initiative, Good Kids asks tough questions about sexual assault and rape culture. Set at a Midwestern high school, in a world of Facebook and Twitter, smartphones and YouTube, it explores culpability, accountability, and assumptions in the public aftermath of a sexual assault. The script is typically performed at the collegiate level, but was chosen by the Young Professionals Company specifically for the challenge it presented. "They felt they were up for the acting challenge and strongly believed the subject matter was important to explore and address from a teen voice," said Dani Baldwin, Artistic Director of the Young Professionals Company. "Approaching the subject of gang date rape and the effects of social media is relevant in their world - unfortunately."

To build an emotionally and physically safe, supportive environment, intimacy coach Alwynn Accuardi was brought in to help choreograph the challenging scenes and build trust between the cast members. Accuardi will build specific physicality and empower the cast with language to keep rehearsals safe.

Director Tamara Carroll applauds the Young Professionals Company for taking on the mature content. "They have chosen this show to better understand their role in challenging and dismantling rape culture, to be better allies to survivors, and to use their considerable skills and energy to educate and invite others to take up this mantle." The production is timely, as the topic of rape culture has come to the forefront in many communities: Carroll also serves as Program Director for the Kaiser Permanente Educational Theatre Program, and has seen these tough topics arise in their work in local schools. Carroll continues, "We may finally be at a critical moment, a tipping point, where a new generation of youth commit themselves to understanding and dismantling rape culture and replacing it with a culture of consent."

The cast features Armita Azizi as Amber, Django Boletus as Tanner, Josh Bransford as Landon, Kate Daley as Brianna, Morgan Demetre as Skyler, Allyson Giard as Chloe, Makenna Markman as Madison, Allison Park as Dierdre, Emmett Ruthermich as Ty, Kaiya Shivers as Kylie, Jasper Warhus as Conner, and Zyla Zody as Daphne.

The creative team includes: Tamara Carroll (Director), Jennifer Lin (Lighting Designer) Richard Moore (Sound Designer), YP Alumni Sydney Dufka (Costume Designer), Terra Dawson (YP Production Coordinator), Alwynn Accuardi (Intimacy Coach), London Mahaley (YP Directing Apprentice), Claire Churchill (YP Stage Manager), Emma Fulmer (YP Assistant Stage Manager), Elliot Odette (YP Props), Kieran Gettel-Gilmartin (YP House Manager), and Willa Poland-McClain (YP Costume Apprentice).

About the Young Professionals Company

The Young Professionals Company is comprised of dedicated theater students ages 14-18 who have been selected to participate in a year-long mentoring program where they receive advanced training through exposure to a wide range of college-level workshops and professional development. Each season, the company presents three shows and other public events. The Young Professionals Company is dedicated to building a supportive community of theater peers, providing them with resources, information, and professional on-the-job experience.

          【鼓浪屿申遗成功】_鼓浪屿申遗成功将考验管理智慧 [Gulangyu Islet] _ Gulangyu Islet World Heritage inscription success will test the wisdom of management-一家三口甲醛中毒      Cache   Translate Page      
第41届世界遗产大会目前正在波兰历史文化名城克拉科夫举办,在当地时间7月8日的会议上,中国申遗项目——“鼓浪屿国际历史社区”通过了世界遗产大会的终审,成功列入世界文化遗产名录,成为中国第52项世界遗产项目。至此,中国的世界遗产总数已名列世界第一。   鼓浪屿申遗成功,也使中国的世界遗产总数名列世界第一,可喜可贺。但申遗成功之后则要面临着如何“限流”,这考验着管理智慧,只是不知道鼓浪屿能否交出一份完美的答卷? 任何地方的申遗成功之后,游客会急增,恐怕鼓浪屿也不例外。据了解,近年来,鼓浪屿游客数量急剧攀升。2009年的游客数量为575万人次,2014年,已达到1246万人次。游客多,这对于风景区来说,是好事,而鼓浪屿申遗成功之后,游客肯定会更多,毕竟世界文化遗产称号是吸引游客最好的金字招牌。每一个风景区均有一定的游客承载量。虽然从目前情况来看,游客数量对于鼓浪屿的历史建筑尚未产生负面影响,但对于环境水平造成了负面影响。国际古迹遗址理事会认为,游客数量对于岛上有形资产和环境是重大威胁,特别是在假期和旺季。根据相关报告显示,鼓浪屿每日容纳人数最多达到5万人,其中包括1.5万居民和通勤者,因此,每日可接纳游客数量实际为3.5万人。游客和通勤者最为合宜的数量是2.5万人。显然,当地政府和旅游部门对这一数字必须要保持敏感度。国际古迹遗址理事会认为,有效的旅游管理是保持文化遗产完整性的关键因素。那么当地旅游部门如何限游客呢? “限流”的招术似乎不少,最有效的可能是提高门票价格。但用门票来吓退游客,这显然不是好办法,也是旅游最为忌讳的。限游客,要限得让游客舒服。外地游客远道而来,远来的都是朋友,将游客挡在门外,是因为保护风景区的需要,这一点游客也是可以理解的。但用涨门票的招式就不行。 在我看来,限游客,一方面要做好“信息服务”,现在是“互联网+”时代,游客买票都可以在网上进行,因此,风景区是否有门票可售,已经卖出去多少了,这些信息均可以在网上查询得到,这样游客不用跑到风景区才知道自己今天是进不去了。信息公开了,游客就方便了,更会觉得舒坦,另一方面也要提倡当地市民让道,提倡在旅游旺季的时候让给外地游客,同时,还要杜绝“黄牛”,以及一些利用不法手段进入景区的行为。 鼓浪屿申遗成功之后必然要“限流”,要“控游客”,但如何“控”和“限”,则要考验管理者的管理智慧。 The forty-first session of the World Heritage Committee is currently in Poland historical and cultural city of Krakow held in July 8th local time of the meeting, Chinese inscription project – "Gulangyu Islet international community history" by the world heritage Conference final, successfully inscribed on the world heritage […]
          Putin Now Thinks Western Elites Are "Swine"      Cache   Translate Page      

Authored by Dmitry Orlov via Russia Insider,

An article I published close to five years ago, “Putin to Western elites: Play-time is over”, turned out to be the most popular thing I’ve written so far, having garnered over 200,000 reads over the intervening years. In it I wrote about Putin’s speech at the 2014 Valdai Club conference. In that speech he defined the new rules by which Russia conducts its foreign policy: out in the open, in full public view, as a sovereign nation among other sovereign nations, asserting its national interests and demanding to be treated as an equal. Yet again, Western elites failed to listen to him.

Instead of mutually beneficial cooperation they continued to speak the language of empty accusations and counterproductive yet toothless sanctions.

And so, in last month’s address to Russia’s National Assembly Putin sounded note of complete and utter disdain and contempt for his “Western partners,” as he has usually called them. This time he called them “swine.”

The president’s annual address to the National Assembly is a rather big deal. Russia’s National Assembly is quite unlike that of, say, Venezuela, which really just consists of some obscure nonentity named Juan recording Youtube videos in his apartment. In Russia, the gathering is a who’s-who of Russian politics, including cabinet ministers, Kremlin staffers, the parliament (State Duma), regional governors, business leaders and political experts, along with a huge crowd of journalists. One thing that stood out at this year’s address was the very high level of tension in the hall: the atmosphere seemed charged with electricity.

It quickly became obvious why the upper echelon of Russia’s state bureaucracy was nervous: Putin’s speech was part marching orders part harangue. His plans for the next couple of years are extremely ambitious, as he himself admitted. The plank is set very high, he said, and those who are not up to the challenge have no business going near it. Very hard work lies ahead for almost everyone who was gathered in that hall, and those of them who fail at their tasks are unlikely to be in attendance the next time around because their careers will have ended in disgrace.

The address contained almost no bad news and quite a lot of very good news. Russia’s financial reserves are more than sufficient to cover its entire external debt, both public and private. Non-energy-resource exports are booming to such an extent that Russia no longer needs oil and gas exports to maintain a positive balance of trade. It has become largely immune to Western sanctions. Eurasian integration projects are going extremely well. Russian government’s investments in industry are paying dividends.

The government has amassed vast amounts of capital which it will now spend on domestic programs designed to benefit the people, to help Russians live longer, healthier lives and have more children. “More children—lower taxes” was one of the catchier slogans.

This was what most of the address was about: eradication of remaining poverty; low, subsidized mortgage rates for families with two or more children; pensions indexed to inflation above and beyond the official minimal income levels (corrected and paid out retroactively); high-speed internet for each and every school; universal access to health care through a network of rural clinics; several new world-class oncology clinics; support for tech start-ups; a “social contract” program that helps people start small businesses; another program called “ticket to the future” that allows sixth-graders to choose a career path that includes directed study programs, mentorships and apprenticeships; lots of new infrastructure projects such as the soon-to-be-opened Autobahn between Moscow and St. Petersburg, revamped trash collection and recycling and major air pollution reductions in a dozen major cities; the list goes on and on.

No opposition to these proposals worth mentioning was voiced in any of the commentary that followed on news programs and talk shows; after all, who could possibly be against spending amassed capital on projects that help the population?

Perhaps the most ambitious goal set by Putin was to redo the entire system of Russia’s government regulations, both federal and regional, in every sphere of public life and commerce. Over the next two years every bit of regulation will be examined in order to determine whether it is necessary and whether it responds to contemporary needs and if it isn’t or doesn’t it will be eliminated. This will significantly ease the burden of regulatory compliance, lowering the cost of doing business.

Another goal was to continue growing the already booming agricultural export sector. Last year Russia achieved self-sufficiency in wheat seed stock, but the overall goal is to achieve complete self-sufficiency in food and to become the world’s provider of ecologically clean foodstuffs. (As Putin pointed out, Russia remains the only major agricultural producer in the world that hasn’t been contaminated by American-made GMO poisons.) Yet another goal is to further grow Russia’s tourism industry, which is already booming, by introducing electronic tourist visas that will be much easier to obtain.

Last year’s address surprised the world with its second part, in which Putin unveiled a whole set of new Russian weapons systems that effectively negate every last bit of US military superiority. This year, he added just one new system: a supersonic cruise missile called “Zirkon” with a 1000 km range that flies at Mach 9. But he also provided a progress report on all the others: everything is going according to plan; some new armaments have already been delivered, others are going into mass production, the rest are being tested. He spoke in favor of normalized relations with the EU, but accused the US of “hostility,” adding that Russia does not threaten anyone and is not interested in confrontation.

Putin’s sharpest words were reserved for the US decision to abandon the INF treaty. He said that the US acted in bad faith, accusing Russia of violating the treaty while they themselves violated it, specifically articles 5 and 6, by deploying dual-use launch systems in Romania and Poland which can be used for both air defense and for offensive nuclear weapons which the treaty specifically prohibits. Nuclear-tipped Tomahawk cruise missiles, which the US could deploy in Poland and Romania, would of course pose a risk, but would not provide the US with anything like a first-strike advantage, since these cruise missiles are obsolete to the point where even Syria’s Soviet-era air defenses were able to shoot down most of the ones the US lobbed at them as punishment for the fake chemical weapons attack in Douma.

Speaking of the American dream of a global air defense system, Putin called on the US to “abandon these illusions.” The Americans can think whatever they want, he said, but the question is, “can they do math?” This needs unfolding.

First, the Americans can think whatever they want because... they are Americans. Russians do not allow themselves the luxury of thinking complete and utter nonsense. Those who are not grounded in fact and logic tend to get the Russian term “likbez” thrown in their faces rather promptly. It literally decodes as “liquidation of illiteracy” and is generally used to shut down ignoramuses. But in the US shocking displays of ignorance are quite acceptable. For an example, you need to look no further than the astonishingly idiotic “Green New Deal” being touted by the freshman congresstwit (how’s that for a gender-neutral appellation?) Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. If she were Russian she’d have been laughed right out of town by now.

“But can they do math?” Apparently not! There is another Russian term—“matchast”—which literally decodes as “material part” but stands for the understanding that can only be achieved through the knowledge of mathematics, the hard sciences and engineering. In Russia, ignoramuses like Ocasio-Cortez, who think that transportation needs can be provided by electric vehicles powered by wind and solar, get shut down by being told to go and study “matchast” while in the US they are allowed to run wild in the halls of congress.

In this case, if Americans could “do math,” they would quickly figure out that there is no conceivable defensive system that would be effective against the new Russian weapons, that there are no conceivable offensive weapons that would prevent Russia from launching an unstoppable retaliatory strike, and that therefore the “new arms race” (which some Americans have been daft enough to announce) is effectively over and Russia has won. See above: Russia is not spending its money on weapons; it is spending it on helping its people. The US can squander arbitrary amounts of money on weapons but this won’t make an iota of difference: an attack on Russia will be the last thing it ever does.

Russia does not plan to be the first to violate the ABM treaty, but if the US deploys intermediate-range nuclear weapons against Russia, then Russia will respond in kind, by targeting not just the territories from which it is threatened but the locations where the decisions to threaten it are taken. Washington, Brussels and other NATO capitals would, clearly, be on that list. This shouldn’t be news; Russia has already announced that in the next war, should there be one, will not be fought on Russian soil. Russia plans to take the fight to the enemy immediately. Of course, there won’t be a war—provided the Americans are sane enough to realize that attacking Russia is functionally equivalent to blowing themselves up with nuclear weapons. Are they sane enough? That is the question that is holding the world hostage.

It is in speaking of them that Putin used the most withering word in his entire address. Speaking of Americans’ dishonesty and bad faith in accusing Russia of violating the ABM treaty while it was they themselves who were violating it, he added: “…and the American satellites oink along with them.” It is rather difficult to come up with an adequate translation for the Russian verb “подхрюкивать”; “oink along with” is as close as I am able to get. The mental image is of a chorus of little pigs accompanying a big swine. The implication is obvious: Putin thinks that the Americans are swine, and that their NATO satellites are swine too.

Therefore, they shouldn’t expect Putin to scatter any pearls before them and, in any case, he’ll be too busy helping Russians live better lives to pay any attention to them.

This book concerns the mass deportation of Poles and others to Siberia following the failed 1863 Polish Insurrection. The imperial Russian government fell back upon using exile to punish the insurrectionists and to cleanse Russia’s Western Provinces of ethnic Poles. It convoyed some 20,000 inhabitants of the Kingdom of Poland and the Western Provinces across the Urals to locations as far away as Iakutsk, and assigned them to penal labor or forced settlement.

          CP of Greece, We denounce the imperialist intervention in Venezuela. Solidarity with the Venezuelan People!      Cache   Translate Page      

We, Communist and Workers Party of the world, decisively denounce the imperialist plans, the undermining tactics and the menaces unleashed by the USA, the EU and their allied governments in Latin America, aiming at overthrowing the legally elected President of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro; at subjugating the people of the country into their imperialist interests; and at looting the country’s wealth-producing resources.
After the failed provocation prepared by the USA using the imperialists’ puppet Guaidó on February 23rd in the Colombian borders, under the pretext of “humanitarian aid”, new scenarios are promoted for a coup or even an imperialist military attack, while simultaneously they continue the effort to organize more provocations that will give a pretext for the escalation of the intervention.
We strongly condemn every coup and imperialist military attack scenario of the USA and of their allies!
We decisively state that they will find against them not only the people of Venezuela but also the Communist and Workers Parties, the working class’ and people’s movement all around the world!
We vehemently condemn the statements of John Bolton, National Security Advisor of the USA, according to which the government of the USA follows the Monroe Doctrine that considers the whole of Latin America as their exclusive zone of interest.
Latin America belongs to its peoples!
Loyal to the principles of Proletarian Internationalism we express our solidarity with the people of Venezuela; only the people of Venezuela have the capacity to decide on the internal affairs of its country. We express our solidarity with the Communist Party of Venezuela, the Communist Youth of Venezuela and other Venezuelan anti-imperialist forces that struggle under difficult conditions to defend the people’s interests.
Down with Imperialism!

          How Much Czar Alexander II Assassination affected Future of Russia?      Cache   Translate Page      
Russia – a huge country somewhere far away, a country with almost no history of real democracy, a country, which is currently responsible, directly or indirectly, for many negative political processes in the modern World, a country, which decided to revise the established borders and order by capturing territories of the neighboring countries – Georgia, Moldova, Ukraine.

But why the country with huge territory and enormous natural resources has not turned to the prosperous establishment, but merely managed to supply oil, gas, gold, and educated human resources to the World, remaining almost permanently on the list of the “outlaws”, together with N. Korea, Venezuela, and Iran.

But maybe, just maybe, the reason, at least partially, the reason of the unfortunate past can be attributed to this day in the history, the event that happened exactly 136 years ago.

This day, March 13, 1881 (March 1 – Old Style), Czar Alexander II, the ruler of Russia since 1855, was killed in the streets of St. Petersburg by a bomb, thrown by a member of the revolutionary “People’s Will” group. The People’s Will, organized in 1879, employed terrorism and assassination in their attempt to overthrow Russia’s czarist autocracy. They murdered officials and made several attempts on the czar’s life before finally assassinating him.

As czar, Alexander did much to liberalize and modernize Russia, including the abolishment of serfdom in 1861. However, when his authority was challenged, he turned more repressive, and he vehemently opposed movements for political reform. Ironically, on the very day he was killed, he signed a proclamation–the so-called Loris-Melikov constitution–that would have created two legislative commissions made up of indirectly elected representatives, offering the substantial step towards democratic constitution.



Alexander II Reforms

Alexander II’s ‘great reforms’ stand out as among the most significant events in nineteenth century Russian history. Alexander became known as the ‘Csar Liberator’ because he abolished serfdom in 1861. Yet 20 years later he was assassinated by terrorists.

Why did Alexander decide to introduce a program of reforms, and why did these reforms fail to satisfy the Russian people?

The reforms were a direct response to Russia’s defeat in the Crimean War and were intended to liberate Russian society from some of its most archaic practices, improve the economic and military efficiency of the war and preserve the existing socio-political structure by a process of modification. The essentially conservative nature of Alexander’s reforms is betrayed by the continuity in policy from the reign of his predecessor Nicholas I (1825-1855). Yet this conservatism, far from guaranteeing the safety of the aristocracy, jeopardised the stability of Russia because it left a 50-year legacy of social and political dissatisfaction to Alexander’s successors.

Emancipation: The Fundamental Reform

The need for reform was evident well before the reign of Alexander II. The Decembrist Revolt of 1825 occurred just as Nicholas I acceded to the throne. Although it was unsuccessful, the uprising demonstrated that the autocracy could not continue to ignore demands for reform indefinitely. The condition of the peasantry was perhaps the most prominent weakness in Russian society. The Pugachev Revolt (1773-75) had served as a reminder of the threat that a dissatisfied peasantry could represent.

Nicholas I introduced a series of minor reforms which improved the conditions of state and crown peasants and which were intended to serve as a model to the dvoriane (nobility) as to how they should treat their private serfs. Most landowners, however, took little notice of these measures and continue to extract feudal dues and labour services from their serfs without regard for their welfare. It is clear that Nicholas I abhorred serfdom: in 1842 he declared to the Council of State: ‘There can be no doubt that serfdom in its present situation in our country is an evil… [It] cannot last forever … The only answer is thus to prepare the way for a gradual transition to a different order…’ However, the conservatism of the autocracy was such that it would not compel the dvoriane by abolishing serfdom unilaterally. It took the shock of Russia’s disastrous performance in the Crimean War, the concomitant death of Nicholas I and the accession of Alexander II to alter the situation.

Alexander II had served on the committees of inquiry into serfdom and he was acutely aware of the weakness of the Russian state. Defeat by Britain and France now demonstrated that Russia was lagging behind her European counterparts. In the autumn of 1856 Yuriy Samarin, a prominent Slavophile, articulated the concerns of political society when he wrote that 'We were defeated not by the external forces of the Western alliance but by our own internal weakness.' Criticisms of serfdom were echoing from many quarters. General Dimitry Milutin, later Minister for War (1861-1881), advised the new Tsar that reform of the Russian army was impossible while serfdom continued to exist. Only by reforming the very foundations of Russian society could effective military capacity be restored and great power status recovered Serfdom was also condemned as economically inefficient. K. D. Kavelin, a liberal university professor, wrote a critique of serfdom in 1856 in which he observed that 'In the economic sphere, serfdom brings the whole state into an abnormal situation and gives rise to artificial phenomena in the national economy which have an unhealthy influence on the whole state 'organism of the state’. It was argued that serfdom impeded the emergence of a modern capitalist economy because the existence of an inelastic labour force and the absence of a money economy retarded industrial development It was further argued that serfdom was an inefficient and unproductive form of agriculture because, essentially, it was forced labour, and so the serfs had no incentive to do any more than subsist.

Despite these powerful arguments in favor of abolishing serfdom, it was still difficult for Alexander II to overcome the inertia of the dvoriane on the issue The Csar had to conjure up the specter of widespread peasant revolt in order to persuade his reticent nobles that there was no alternative to Emancipation. In a speech to the Tver nobility, he declared that 'It is better to abolish serfdom from above than to wait for the time when it begins to abolish itself from below.'



Other Reforms

In response to the overwhelming defeat (1856) suffered by Russia in the Crimean War and to attempt to keep pace with military advances in other European countries, Alexander II appointed Dmitry Milyutin to carry out significant reforms in the Russian armed forces. The changes included universal military conscription, introduced for all social classes on 1 January 1874. Prior to this new regulation, as of 1861, conscription was compulsorily enforced only for the peasantry. Conscription had, prior to this reform, been 25 years for serfs that were drafted by their landowners, which was widely considered to be a life sentence. Other military reforms included extending the reserve forces and the military district system, which split the Russian states into 15 military districts, a system still in use over a hundred years later.

The building of strategic railways and an emphasis on the military education of the officer corps comprised further reforms. Corporal punishment in the military and branding of soldiers as punishment were banned. The bulk of important military reforms were enacted because of the poor showing in the Crimean War.

A new judicial administration (1864), based on the French model, introduced security of tenure. A new penal code and a greatly simplified system of civil and criminal procedure also came into operation. Reorganization of the judiciary, to include trial in open court, with judges appointed for life, a jury system and the creation of justices of the peace to deal with minor offences at local level.

Alexander's bureaucracy instituted an elaborate scheme of local self-government (zemstvo) for the rural districts (1864) and the large towns (1870), with elective assemblies possessing a restricted right of taxation, and a new rural and municipal police under the direction of the Minister of the Interior.

The Impact of Alexander II's Reforms

Significant though the reforms of Alexander II were, they failed to create popular support for the Tsarist regime. In 1862, Alexander granted Poland limited autonomy, but the Poles were traditionally hostile to the Russian Empire and in 1863 they rebelled. The Polish Revolt was countered with repression, the orthodox policy of Tsarist autocracy. In 1866, Karakazov, a former student of the University of Kazan, fired a pistol shot at the Tsar. This unsuccessful attempt on Alexander's life resulted in the replacement of Golovnin, the Minister of Education, by the conservative Dimitry Tolstoy, who acted to restrict access to university education.

Russian intellectuals interpreted Alexander's reforms as an attempt to perpetuate the existing political system. Historical opinion has for the most part agreed with this assessment. Florinsky, for example, has suggested that the reforms were nothing more than ‘halfhearted concessions on the part of those who (with some exceptions) hated to see the disappearance of the old order and tried to save as much of it as circumstances would allow’. The response of the Russian intelligentsia was the Populist 'going to the people' in 1874. When this failed, propaganda gave way to terrorism, which culminated in the assassination of Alexander II in 1881. Although it did not achieve its objective of igniting a revolution in Russia, Populism was nevertheless significant. It made a start in developing the political consciousness of the people and its terrorist actions inspired later insurrectionists. The Social Revolutionaries, descendants of Populism, were the most important insurgent group at the turn of the century.



No Constitution for Russia

Alexander II's death caused a great setback for the reform movement. One of his last acts was the approval of Mikhail Loris-Melikov's constitutional reforms. Though the reforms were conservative in practice, their significance lay in the value Alexander II attributed to them: "I have given my approval, but I do not hide from myself the fact that it is the first step towards a constitution." In a matter of 48 hours, Alexander II planned to release these plans to the Russian people. Instead, following his succession Alexander III under the advice of Konstantin Pobedonostsev chose to abandon these reforms and went on to pursue a policy of greater autocratic power.

The assassination triggered major suppression of civil liberties in Russia, and police brutality burst back in full force after experiencing some restraint under the reign of Alexander II, whose death was witnessed first-hand by his son, Alexander III, and his grandson, Nicholas II, both future emperors who vowed not to have the same fate befall them. Both used the Okhrana to arrest protestors and uproot suspected rebel groups, creating further suppression of personal freedom for the Russian people. A series of anti-Jewish pogroms and anti-Semitic legislation, the May Laws, were yet another result.

Finally, the csar's assassination also inspired anarchists to advocate "'propaganda by deed'—the use of a spectacular act of violence to incite revolution."

The downfall of the Romanovs came in 1917 under Nicholas II, largely due to the incompetence of the tsar, a reactionary but weak leader, who not only alienated the lower classes, but also the nobility, who were critical of the influence of the Tsarina and Grigori Rasputin on government affairs. There is no doubt that Nicholas faced a number of great difficulties when he came to the throne, but his lack of leadership and political authority exacerbated these differences, and despite measures which may have temporarily appeased radicals (such as the October Manifesto of 1905), Nicholas II’s mishandling of domestic politics largely contributed to the downfall of the Romanov monarchy.

The legacy of Alexander II is mixed - despite emancipating the serfs, he laid upon them a great burden in the form of redemption dues. Alexander II’s death did result in a reactionary government under Alexander III, but this reactionism, and the problems it later caused for Nicholas II, may not be sufficient enough to explain the reasons for the downfall of the Romanovs in 1917.

          The Devils' Alliance: Hitler's Pact with Stalin, paving the road to World War II       Cache   Translate Page      
Article I. In the event of a territorial and political rearrangement in the areas belonging to the Baltic States (Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania), the northern boundary of Lithuania shall represent the boundary of the spheres of influence of Germany and U.S.S.R. In this connection the interest of Lithuania in the Vilna area is recognized by each party.

Article II. In the event of a territorial and political rearrangement of the areas belonging to the Polish state, the spheres of influence of Germany and the U.S.S.R. shall be bounded approximately by the line of the rivers Narev, Vistula and San.

The question of whether the interests of both parties make desirable the maintenance of an independent Polish States and how such a state should be bounded can only be definitely determined in the course of further political developments.

In any event both Governments will resolve this question by means of a friendly agreement.

Article III. With regard to Southeastern Europe attention is called by the Soviet side to its interest in Bessarabia. The German side declares its complete political disinteredness in these areas.

Article IV. This protocol shall be treated by both parties as strictly secret.
Moscow, August 23, 1939.

For the Government of the German Reich v. Ribbentrop
Plenipotentiary of the Government of the U.S.S.R. V. Molotov



With the stroke of a pen 77 years ago, two men changed the world and sealed the fate of millions. Those two men were the foreign minister of Nazi Germany, Joachim von Ribbentrop, and his Soviet counterpart, Vyacheslav Molotov. On August 23, 1939, they signed a non-aggression pact, promising not to interfere in case the other went to war.



That public announcement was shocking enough: The two totalitarian states had been at loggerheads for years. But they also signed a second, secret agreement that carved up Eastern Europe between them.

“In fact, the Nazi-Soviet Pact as the kick-off for World War II is probably the most surprising scenario that anyone could have imagined," historian Roger Moorhouse says. "That’s how you have to view it from the perspective of August 1939. The world was absolutely dumbstruck by this deal.”

Those twin agreements did in fact set the stage for the start of World War II. Within days of signing the pacts, now confident that the Soviets would not oppose him, Hitler invaded Poland. Britain and France declared war on Germany, and the war was underway.

A couple of weeks later, the Soviet Union invaded Poland from the east to grab its share of the spoils. In 1940 it followed up by occupying Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and the Romanian province of Bessarabia. Britain and France protested, but with their forces already taking on Germany, they couldn't afford to fight Stalin as well.

After Poland surrendered, Stalin and Hitler issued a joint statement calling for Britain and France to accept the new order and make peace, stating, “If, however, these efforts of both governments remain unsuccessful, it will be established thereby that England and France bear the responsibility for the continuation of the war.”

In December 1939 Stalin assured Hitler that the alliance between Russia and Germany was “cemented in blood”. Attacks on fascism ceased to appear in the Russian press and the world’s Communist parties switched from supporting a “people’s war against fascism” to opposing “imperialist war” in the wake the pact.

Eight hundred exiled German communists were transferred across the Soviet border into the welcoming hands of Third Reich’s Gestapo.

For a time, the pact worked well — and showed how similar the two states really were.

In the areas of Eastern Europe that they did occupy, the Nazis and Soviets set up occupation zones. Interesting is that both occupation regimes governed in remarkably similar ways, targeting remarkably similar groups of people. Army officers and officials of the old regimes, intellectuals, priests and community leaders were detained en masse. Thousands were executed or deported to gulags and concentration camps.

The Nazis obviously also targeted Jews, but many Jews fled Stalin’s control as well — even seeking sanctuary in Nazi areas. In one remarkable moment, two trainloads of refugees going opposite ways met at a border. They were equally astonished that anyone should want to head in the other direction.

But indeed, both Moscow and Berlin indulged in massive population transfers, each trying to recreate Eastern Europe in their preferred image. Thousands of ethnic Germans were moved from the Soviet zones to the German ones, while thousands of Poles were deported from areas now designated "German." Still others were shipped off as slave laborers to Germany proper. Many people simply moved of their own accord to escape the new states where they were denied basic rights, and some of them eventually came to America.

For both regimes, the pact was advantageous beyond the political realm. Between August 1939 and June 22, 1941, Moscow delivered petroleum products, grain, nickel, manganese and chromium for steel production, phosphate, wood and other materials.

In return, the Third Reich delivered fighter jets, explosive chemicals and bombs, radio stations, industrial facilities and even the cruiser Lützow, which the Soviets renamed Petropavlovsk. In addition, the Soviet Union received a loan of 200 million reichsmarks.





The most important element in German-Soviet cooperation between 1939 and 1941 wasn't the cooperation between the armies at all, but rather the economic deliveries on a large scale that resulted. There are reports, even from June 22, 1941 - the day the Wehrmacht invaded the Soviet Union - that the soldiers encountered trains with Soviet deliveries. The Soviets were true to the contract until the end.

Another "partnership" existed between the NKVD - the Soviet secret police - and its German counterpart, the Gestapo. A secret agreement approved by the Soviet leadership gave anti-fascist Germans and Austrians who had fought against Hitler to the Gestapo. Many dozens of them, including well-known German communist Margarete Buber-Neumann, were handed over. The majority were murdered.

But the Nazi-Soviet pact didn't last. In late 1939, the Soviets also tried to invade Finland. The Finns refused to roll over. Despite being tremendously outnumbered and outgunned, they improvised a defense and made the best of the terrain and the ferocious winter weather.

One innovation of that campaign was the gasoline bomb, designed for use against the air intake ducts on Soviet tanks. Molotov, the Soviet foreign minister, had called the Russian invasion a "humanitarian" move; Soviet propaganda even claimed that bombs dropped by Soviet planes were food aid. In a sarcastic tribute, the Finns christened their homemade weapons "Molotov cocktails," joking that they should have drinks along with the Soviet-provided "meals." In the end, the Soviets suffered a brutal loss in the "Winter War" with the Finns.

The Germans were astonished at how badly the Soviets performed in the Winter War, a performance that made them believe they could turn on Stalin before finishing off the stubborn Brits in the west. In June 1941, Hitler attacked. Many historians claim that Stalin was stunned by the invasion and refused to accept that the news was true, leading to disastrous losses by the Red Army in the early days of the war.

Once the Soviet Union recovered and defeated the Nazis, Moscow re-wrote history. The Nazi-Soviet Pact morphed from a delusion to a clever way to buy time, which allowed the Soviet Union to re-arm. Britain and America also tended to airbrush the Nazi-Soviet pact out of mainstream history, afraid that it would damage the popular narrative of the "Grand Alliance" that beat the Nazis.

And that's only the public half of the alliance: the existence of the secret protocol was officially denied by the Soviet Union until its dying days in 1989.



In 2014, the Russian president Vladimir Putin made the comments at a meeting with young historians in Moscow that there was nothing bad about the Nazi-Soviet Pact, calling it “ the great achievement of Soviet diplomacy” and suggesting Britain and France were to blame for Adolf Hitler's march into Europe.

          How Valentine’s Day is Celebrated in 28 Countries around the World?      Cache   Translate Page      
Every February 14, across the United States and in other places around the world, candy, flowers and gifts are exchanged between loved ones, all in the name of St. Valentine. But who is this mysterious saint, and where did these traditions come from? Find out about the history of this centuries-old holiday, from ancient Roman rituals to the customs of Victorian England.

The Legend of St. Valentine

The history of Valentine’s Day – and the story of its patron saint – is shrouded in mystery. We do know that February has long been celebrated as a month of romance, and that St. Valentine’s Day, as we know it today, contains vestiges of both Christian and ancient Roman tradition. But who was Saint Valentine, and how did he become associated with this ancient rite?

The Catholic Church recognizes at least three different saints named Valentine or Valentinus, all of whom were martyred. One legend contends that Valentine was a priest who served during the third century in Rome. When Emperor Claudius II decided that single men made better soldiers than those with wives and families, he outlawed marriage for young men. Valentine, realizing the injustice of the decree, defied Claudius and continued to perform marriages for young lovers in secret. When Valentine’s actions were discovered, Claudius ordered that he be put to death.

Other stories suggest that Valentine may have been killed for attempting to help Christians escape harsh Roman prisons, where they were often beaten and tortured. According to one legend, an imprisoned Valentine actually sent the first “valentine” greeting himself after he fell in love with a young girl–possibly his jailor’s daughter–who visited him during his confinement. Before his death, it is alleged that he wrote her a letter signed “From your Valentine,” an expression that is still in use today. Although the truth behind the Valentine legends is murky, the stories all emphasize his appeal as a sympathetic, heroic and, most importantly, romantic figure. By the Middle Ages, perhaps thanks to this reputation, Valentine would become one of the most popular saints in England and France.

Origins of Valentine’s Day: A Pagan Festival In February

While some believe that Valentine’s Day is celebrated in the middle of February to commemorate the anniversary of Valentine’s death or burial–which probably occurred around A.D. 270–others claim that the Christian church may have decided to place St. Valentine’s feast day in the middle of February in an effort to “Christianize” the pagan celebration of Lupercalia. Celebrated at the ides of February, or February 15, Lupercalia was a fertility festival dedicated to Faunus, the Roman god of agriculture, as well as to the Roman founders Romulus and Remus.

To begin the festival, members of the Luperci, an order of Roman priests, would gather at a sacred cave where the infants Romulus and Remus, the founders of Rome, were believed to have been cared for by a she-wolf or lupa. The priests would sacrifice a goat, for fertility, and a dog, for purification. They would then strip the goat’s hide into strips, dip them into the sacrificial blood and take to the streets, gently slapping both women and crop fields with the goat hide. Far from being fearful, Roman women welcomed the touch of the hides because it was believed to make them more fertile in the coming year. Later in the day, according to legend, all the young women in the city would place their names in a big urn. The city’s bachelors would each choose a name and become paired for the year with his chosen woman. These matches often ended in marriage.

Valentine’s Day: A Day of Romance

Lupercalia survived the initial rise of Christianity and but was outlawed—as it was deemed “un-Christian”–at the end of the 5th century, when Pope Gelasius declared February 14 St. Valentine’s Day. It was not until much later, however, that the day became definitively associated with love. During the Middle Ages, it was commonly believed in France and England that February 14 was the beginning of birds’ mating season, which added to the idea that the middle of Valentine’s Day should be a day for romance.

Valentine greetings were popular as far back as the Middle Ages, though written Valentine’s didn’t begin to appear until after 1400. The oldest known valentine still in existence today was a poem written in 1415 by Charles, Duke of Orleans, to his wife while he was imprisoned in the Tower of London following his capture at the Battle of Agincourt. The greeting is now part of the manuscript collection of the British Library in London, England. Several years later, it is believed that King Henry V hired a writer named John Lydgate to compose a valentine note to Catherine of Valois.

What would you do if your beloved gave you a wooden spoon on Valentine's Day?

Although you might be confused if you are used to chocolates in a heart-shaped box, if you happen to have grown up in Wales, that would be perfectly normal. Young men there typically present "love spoons" to their paramours, a tradition inspired by Welsh sailors creating homemade gifts for their sweethearts while at sea. The "love spoon" exchange, along with many other global Valentine's Day traditions, shows that old-fashioned romance is not dead.

Countries around the world have one-of-a-kind customs that range from Estonia's "love bus" rides for singles to mass weddings in the Philippines. While the actual practices can vary in date and target audience (some traditions specifically celebrate the singles among us!), citizens of many countries set aside time to commemorate some sort of commitment. In some places, the difference in approach to the day is even more stark, as public displays of love and affection are outright banned on February 14.

While you probably will not want to adopt all of the cultural customs highlighted below, read and consider those, which may refresh your romantic relationship, show your creative approach, and make this day unforgettable for your partner and yourself. Or, maybe, make up your own unique ritual to show your love and affection.

1.       USA
In the United States of America, there have been many varieties of cards given over the course of the years, some of which have often been rude or even quite cruel in their humor. In the times of the Civil War, cards were flagged with rich colors accompanied by patriotic and/or political motifs. Early American valentine cards were especially lithographed and hand-colored, beautiful and distinctive in design, produced with intricate lace paper and decorated with such ornaments as beads, sea shells, cones, berries and all manner of seeds. Cards were also available decorated with seaweed or moss, in addition to dried and/or artificial flowers, all of which were attached to a string which was pulled and could then be suspended, thereby creating a three-dimensional picture. Many early American cards were imported from abroad, given the poor quality of American paper at the time which was not particularly suitable for embossing. Today, American children usually exchange valentines with their friends and there may even be a classroom party.

2.       Canada
Valentine’s Day festival is celebrated with much enthusiasm in Canada. Valentine's Day balls and parties are organized all over the country where people express love for their spouses and sweethearts and enjoy to the hilt. Roses, chocolates, candies and cards are the most popular gifts for the romantic occasion. As a tradition, children in Canada exchange Valentine's Day gifts with their friends. In several schools, classroom Valentine's Day Parties are organized where children put all the valentines in a decorated box. Later, teacher or a child distributes the cards. Kids are encouraged to prepare handmade valentine. Many children also gift fancy Valentine’s Day card to parents and teachers. Songs, skits, plays and concerts are also organized by schools and societies to celebrate Valentine's Day. Students in senior school hold Valentine's Day dance parties to cherish the joyful festival.

3.       United Kingdom
The aura of mystery is alive and well on Valentine's Day in the U.K. In a tradition dating back to the Victorian era, Brits traditionally send anonymous valentines to their romantic interests. The Victorians believed signing your name on the card was considered bad luck. The U.K. also claims responsibility for starting the practice of giving roses on Valentine's Day, since that flower was traditionally seen as the favorite of Venus, the Roman goddess of love.

4.       Australia
During the Australian gold rush period, miners who were suddenly in possession of money from the new-found wealth of the Ballarat Mines were willing to pay a princely sum for elaborate valentines and merchants in the country would ship orders amounting to thousands of pounds at a time. The most extravagant Australian valentines were made of a satin cushion, perfumed and decorated in an ornate manner with flowers and colored shells. Some might even be adorned with a taxidermied humming bird or bird of paradise. This treasure, contained within a neatly decorated box, was highly valued, being both fashionable and extremely expensive.

5.       Wales
So it's not technically a Valentine's Day tradition, but rather than professing their love on February 14, the Welsh celebrate St. Dwynwen's Day on January 25. Wales Online explains that St. Dwynwen is the "Welsh patron saint of lovers" and men traditionally give women hand-carved wooden spoons as a romantic gesture. The custom is thought to have originated when Welsh sailors carved designs into wooden spoons while at sea to bring back to the women at home.

6.       Scotland
In Scotland, Valentine's Day is celebrated with a festival. At this festival, there is an equal number of unmarried males and females, each of whom write their name (or a made-up name) on a piece of paper which is then folded and placed into a hat...one hat for the ladies and one for the men. The females then draw a name from the hat containing the men's names and vice versa. Of course, it is highly likely that the two drawn names will not match, in which event, it is usually expected that the male partner with the female who selected his name. This rite having been completed, the company split up into couples and gifts are given to the ladies. The females would then pin the name of their partner over their hearts or on their sleeves. A dance often follows and, at the end of the festival, it is not unusual for marriages to take place. According to another Scottish custom, the first young man or woman encountered by chance on the street or elsewhere will become that individual's valentine. Valentine's Day gifts in Scotland are frequently given by both parties in the form of a love-token or true-love-knot.

7.       Germany
In Germany, it has become customary for the young man of a courting couple to present his beloved with flowers on February 14. Valentine gifts in Germany are usually in the shape of love tokens, complete with endearing messages. However, these are not distributed solely on Valentine's Day, but on any occasion. Even early German baptismal certificates or marriage certificates were considered at one time to have been valentines, but were more likely simply decorative and pictorial documents which contained lovely verses.

8.       France
In France, a custom known as "drawing for" once occurred. Unmarried individuals, both young and not so young, would go into houses facing each other and begin calling out across from one window to another, pairing-off with the chosen partner. If the young man failed to be particularly enthralled with his valentine, he would desert her. As a result, a bonfire would be lit later where the ladies could burn images of the ungrateful sweetheart and verbally abuse him in a loud tone as the effigy burned. This ritual was eventually abandoned since it left much room for nastiness, ridicule or even outright malice and the French government finally handed-down a decree officially banning the custom. Elegant French greetings cards known as cartes d'amities, which contained tender messages, were given not totally as a Valentine but chiefly as a result of a fashion which was popular in England at the time.

9.       Italy
In Italy, Valentine's Day was once celebrated as a Spring Festival, held in the open air, where young people would gather in tree arbors or ornamental gardens to listen to music and the reading of poetry. However, over the course of the years, this custom steadily ceased and has not now been celebrated for centuries. In Turin, it was formerly the custom for betrothed couples to announce their engagements on February 14. For several days ahead of time, the stores would be decorated and filled with all manner of bon-bons.

10.   Austria
Austria has some rather obscure courtship customs that may or may not be associated with Saint Valentine's Day. Nonetheless, it is customary for a young man to present his beloved with a bunch of flowers on February 14.

11.   Spain
In Spain, it is customary for courting couples to exchange gifts on Valentine's Day and for husbands to send their wives bouquets of roses.

12.   Slovenia
In Slovenia, February 14 is considered a great day for working in the fields, according to many reports. St. Valentine is one of the patron saints of spring, so what better time to get out on the farm or vineyard after the long winter and start working on the future harvest? All isn't lost for lovers, though. Roughly a month later, Slovenians traditionally celebrate St. Gregory's Day, March 12, as a romantic holiday.

13.   Poland
Many Polish people celebrate Valentine’s Day (Walentynki), a day associated with romance and love, on February 14. Valentine’s Day focuses on love, romance, appreciation and friendship. Chocolates, candies shaped in red hearts, and other gifts are given to loved ones on Valentine’s Day. Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and Women’s Day are also observed in Poland, in which friends, partners, and family members received gifts, cards or flowers.

14.   Ukraine
When the so-called Iron Curtain fell down, people of the Former Soviet Union saw that there are a lot of nice European and American holidays and have eagerly adopted some of them. There is no point in describing Ukrainian St. Valentine's Day as there is practically no difference from the Western holiday of the same name.

15.   Estonia & Finland
All aboard the love bus! While Estonia celebrates Friend's Day on February 14, the country also has an interesting tradition for single people. Those not romantically attached on Valentine's Day can take a ride on the love bus — yes, it’s really called that — in the hopes of meeting someone special. And even if you don't meet your match aboard the bus, taking the ride with your other pals is your Friend's Day consolation prize. In Finland, February 14 is also known as Friend's Day — a holiday traditionally celebrated with your entire squad, not just your significant other. Cards and gifts are still in order, but for everybody. Even if Friend's Day sounds a lot like a kinder name for Singles Awareness Day, there are still plenty of people in the Nordic country, where public displays of affection are rare, who celebrate their romantic relationships on February 14: it's a popular day to get engaged, and stores are full of heart-shaped Valentine's Day paraphernalia.

16.   Denmark
Although Valentine’s Day is a relatively new holiday in Denmark (celebrated since the early 1990s according to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark), the country has embraced February 14th with a Danish twist. Rather than roses, friends and sweethearts exchange pressed white flowers called snowdrops. Another popular Danish Valentine’s Day tradition is the exchange of “lover’s cards.” While lover’s cards were originally transparent cards which showed a picture of the card giver presenting a gift to his sweetheart, the term is now synonymous with any card exchanged on Valentine’s Day. On February 14th, men also give women gaekkebrev, a “joking letter” consisting of a funny poem or rhyme written on intricately cut paper and signed only with anonymous dots. If a woman who receives the gaekkebrev can correctly guess the sender, she earns herself an Easter egg later that year.

17.   Japan
Japanese women do not wait for men to make the first move, at least on Valentine’s Day. For one day of the year, Japanese women traditionally give men gifts and affection, instead of the other way around. One particularly popular gift is chocolate — homemade honmei-choco for the object of your desire or store-bought giri-choco as a non-romantic sign of affection for friends and coworkers. The nation's men return the favor on March 14, known as White Day, when guys give women white chocolate or other white gifts.

18.   China
The equivalent to Valentine’s Day in China is Qixi, or the Seventh Night Festival, which falls on the seventh day of the seventh lunar month each year. According to Chinese lore, Zhinu, a heavenly king’s daughter, and Niulang, a poor cowherd, fell in love, married and had twins. When Zhinu’s father learned of their marriage, he sent his queen to bring Zhinu back to the stars. Upon hearing the cries of Niulang and the children, the king allowed Zhinu and Niulang to meet once a year on Qixi. During Qixi, young women prepare offerings of melon and other fruits to Zhinu in hopes of finding a good husband. Couples also head to temples to pray for happiness and prosperity. At night, people look to the heavens to watch as stars Vega and Altair (Zhinu and Niulang, respectively) come close during the star-crossed pair’s annual reunion.

19.   South Korea
Many women in South Korea (as in Japan) spend Valentine's Day showering men with gifts, and the men do the giving on White Day, March 14. But South Korea takes things a step further with a third holiday. On April 14, known as Black Day, single friends gather to eat noodles and celebrate their (lack of) relationship status. The holiday takes its name from the noodle dish, which includes white noodles in a black bean sauce. Black Day celebrations are spirited and fun, but somber in origin — the black food symbolizes sorrow.

20.   Taiwan
Valentine's Day is celebrated in Taiwan on February 14, but there is also a special Valentine's Day on July 7 of the lunar calendar, based on an ancient Chinese folktale (**). Both dates are equally as important. Many men purchase expensive bouquets of roses and other flowers for their sweethearts on these days. According to Taiwan tradition, the color and number of the roses holds much significance. For example, one red rose means "an only love," eleven roses means "a favorite," ninety-nine roses means "forever," and one hundred eight roses means "marry me."

21.   India
Valentine's Day celebration is a recent phenomenon in India but has caught the fancy of people to a great extent. Though some see it as a western import and hesitate to celebrate, there exist a large and growing number of those who love the feeling behind the beautiful and romantic festival. Especially to the Indian youth February 14 signifies love - a day when people express their affection for others. Just as several other countries, people in India too celebrate the Valentine's Day by exchanging cards and gifts.

22.   Iraq
Exchanging over-the-top gifts for Valentine's Day may seem like a Western tradition, but Iraqis also celebrate February 14 in style. In Iraq, huge teddy bears, red roses, and traditional Valentine's Day cards are common. Al Arabiya explains that on Valentine's Day, all of Baghdad appears to be overtaken by the color red. That said, conservative Muslims don't celebrate the day and view it as a Western holiday.

23.   Saudi Arabia
Valentine's Day is officially banned in Saudi Arabia. In the days before February 14, it’s illegal to sell roses and love-themed greeting cards in the desert kingdom, where conservative Muslims believe the holiday promotes alcohol consumption and premarital sex. If you happen to be there, you're likely to encounter officers from Saudi Arabia's Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, especially if you engage in any public displays of affection (those are also punishable by law). One shop owner in Saudi Arabia told WorldPost that there's a sort of underground market for red roses; customers place the orders over the phone, and the secret gifts are hidden in the back of the store, in case police inspect the retailer. Saudi Arabia isn't the only country to clamp down on Valentine’s Day. Iran, Malaysia, and Indonesia have enacted similar bans.

24.   Philippines
How would you feel about sharing your wedding day with another couple? We think of brides and grooms as loving the spotlight, but that's not necessarily the case on Valentine’s Day in the Philippines, where couples line up for mass weddings on February 14. On Valentine's Day in 2013, 200 couples married in one ceremony in Quezon City, for example, and a total 4,000 couples were married throughout the country, Xinhua reports.

25.   Brazil
Brazil celebrates its version of Valentine's Day, Dia dos Namorados, in June. The holiday on June 12 is timed to coincide with St. Anthony’s Day on June 13. St. Anthony of Padua died on June 13, 1231 and is considered by some to be the patron saint of marriage. Dia dos Namorados, which roughly translates to "Lovers' Day," or "Boyfriends' /Girlfriends' Day," is celebrated with gifts and decorations similar to those traditionally found on Valentine's Day. Celebrating in June also leaves more time in February for Carnival, the raucous annual festival timed to coincide with the beginning of Lent.

26.   Argentina
One day isn't enough to celebrate Valentine's in Argentina, land of Tango.  Argentinians take a week to celebrate the occasion.  In addition to February 14th they set aside seven days in July for “sweetness week.”  From the 13th to the 20th, lovers and friends will exchange candies and kisses. This week typically ends with “Friendship Day”.

27.   Chile
Chile is known as “the land of poets”, and it is true that Chileans are really romantic too. The “Dia de San Valentin” is anticipated greatly by lovers. Chileans love to celebrate and Valentine’s Day is a special occasion for couples, who celebrate with true excitement. It’s typical to walk around the city and see decorations all around as shops, malls and streets are beautifully decorated with flowers, balloons, and heart garlands. Restaurants, pubs, clubs, travel agencies and hotels engage in huge marketing promotions to offer incentives to lovers to do something really special. Flowers, chocolates, love letters and jewels are typical gifts. Going out for a romantic dinner is also a tradition for couples and public concerts enhance the romantic mood throughout towns and cities across the country.

28.   South Africa
Like many parts of the world, South Africa celebrates Valentine’s Day with festivals, flowers and other tokens of love. It’s also customary for women in South Africa to wear their hearts on their sleeves on February 14th; women pin the names of their love interest on their shirtsleeves, an ancient Roman tradition known as Lupercalia. In some cases, this is how South African men learn of their secret admirers.

          Blackmail, Balderdash, & The Brexit That Wasn't      Cache   Translate Page      

Authored by Tom Luongo,

After a lot of drama, British Prime Minister Theresa May came back from Brussels with a breakthrough on Brexit.

Only it wasn’t.

While the changes to the protocol that governs the implementation of the Irish Backstop are an improvement they are far fro enough to allay the rightful fears of Brexiteers and the Northern Irish.

From the beginning of this process, the EU has been in blackmail mode. They’ve made it clear that they would not negotiate in good faith or even at all. That much has been clear.

The biggest question has been whether May herself was working in the British people’s best interest or was she simply a stalking horse for further EU integration of the entire continent of Europe.

Never forget that the EU has imperial ambitions. Those that have been its architects saw it as regaining the mantle of the center of the world as the U.S. bankrupts itself maintaining an empire around the world, fighting against the rise of Russia and China.

It sits in the weeds, making byzantine bureaucratic law and building both a fiscal and political union through these under-handed back doors.

And the people of Europe have woken up to it. The Brits voted to leave the EU because of this. Euroskeptic parties are rising across Europe. The latest rebuke of the EU came in Austria’s Salzburg, a traditional center-left stronghold just voted for a Lega-style nationalist/populist majority.

Now people like Theresa May, who never supported Brexit, are using this negotiating period to hand to the EU everything it wants in the Withdrawal Agreement to blackmail the British people to accept an even worse arrangement than had they not voted to leave in the first place.

This point cannot be understated.

Because it is the model for how the EU will fight the rising opposition to its rule.

The withdrawal agreement was crafted by Germany and not negotiated by Jean-Claude Juncker and Michael Barnier to punish the U.K. for standing up to the inevitability of the EU.

It is a message and a warning to Italy, Hungary and Poland.

It was designed to cause irreparable damage to the U.K. with the long-term effects of destroying the majority political parties and fanning separatist instincts in Wales and Scotland.

And no one is more to blame for this mess than the members of Parliament who continue to virtue signal about the horrors of a no-deal which the British people have become less and less scared of every day. Poll after poll shows overwhelming rejection of May’s Merkel’s deal as well as growing support for a No-Deal Brexit.

And if the members of parliament who continue to go through the pantomime of an existential crisis would leave it aside and simply say that’s it, no deal it is, that would end the uncertainty and the worry that is now the dominant narrative in the press.

Businesses are relocating, shipments are stopping, etc. All because of Brexit, they argue. No, all because of MP’s who refuse to embrace the situation as it stands and face the reality that sovereignty is more important than a quarter or two of tightened belts and some annoying paperwork.

Moreover, the biggest fear now is the one which is that Britain ends up better off if they not only threw off the shackles of the EU but also its own corrupt and, frankly, traitorous leadership.

Theresa May’s performance in parliament before the latest vote was almost convincing. But, as always, when someone is giving you an ultimatum, my way or the highway, it’s masking an alternative choice.

The Dublin Unionist Party and the European Research Group within the Tories understand this. I suspect in his heart of hearts Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn

And the reason for this is May was always on their side. It’s not a negotiation when there’s only one side represented. This is why Juncker et.al. refused to negotiate in any meaningful way.

They didn’t have to.

And that is simply blackmail.

What is obvious watching British parliamentarians at this late stage is that a majority of them are unwilling to face reality that the EU is not in their best interest. Because any organization that would blackmail rather than negotiate is not an organization anyone decent person would want to be a member of.

Fears over a No-Deal Brexit are overblown. If these same MP’s that are so worried about the uncertainty created by the Brexit process would simply end that uncertainty by backing No-Deal then certainty would return.

It might not be the certainty that is the easiest to swallow for both sides but it will be certainty.

Mr. Juncker made it clear there is nothing better forthcoming. That’s an insult and it should be treated as such by Parliament.

But it won’t be as MP’s roll over, show Juncker their bellies and hand-wring about how unfair it all is again later this week.

They cannot see the bigger picture that it is the EU that has the weak hand, not them. They are too blinded by ideology and fear to see that.

Dear Jolly, Germany was considered stronger which is why our leaders didn't doubt they had to surrender (in two waves) as rational folks once the allies fainted away. But the difference was in no way analogous to the ant-elephant difference and you sound rather illiterate if you use this language.

Here you have a table comparing the equipment of the Czechoslovak and German armies in September 1938:

https://www.fronta.cz/dotaz...

The ratio of the numbers was just about 2-to-1 in Germany's favor in pistols, rifles, light and heavy cannons, fighter aircraft, machine guns; there was a tie in mortars, tankettes, observing aircraft. Czechoslovakia had 7-to-1 edge in mountain cannons. Germany only had a clear advantage in automatic guns, marine aircraft, total dominance in infantry cannons, 5-to-1 or 7-to-1 in tanks and bombarding aircraft etc. And Czechoslovakia had the advantage of the mountains with a fortification system that made the defensive side much stronger. Despite some advantages for Germany, Czechoslovakia was a more militarized country per capita, although it may sound counterintuitive now. Since Hitler took over in particular, Czechoslovakia was responsibly arming itself and preparing to be a formidable member of the anti-Hitler alliance (our PM just promised 2% of GDP for army, as Trump wants from NATO, by 2024) - sadly, the only one that still believed in this role in Fall 1938. The populations of the countries were 70 million vs 15 million.

All of this was basically given to Nazi Germany for free between 1938 and 1939 - especially along with the production capacities that were making the Czechoslovak tanks destined to (help a very important role to) conquer France, Poland, and Soviet Union. See
https://www.quora.com/Why-d...

Only afterwards Germany became the formidable frontrunner that was smoothly winning everything up to 1942. It just wouldn't be the same without the Czechoslovak assets.

If Czechoslovaks had the Polish suicidal determination to fight, Germany would be served huge losses that would probably prevent it from occupying France etc. later. (Czechoslovakia could have lost millions of men to achieve that and no one would be grateful to us because they wouldn't know and they wouldn't believe that in the alternative history, Hitler would take most of Europe!) Hundreds of thousands of German troops would almost certainly die before we would lose. Incidentally, the same is true for the 1968 Soviet-led occupation. 500,000 troops invaded us in three waves - again, a clear brute force that left no doubt that our opportunist nation would surrender. However, if something were different and we decided to fight, the communist bastards would blood heavily because our army was quite a force in 1968, too (my father just served his years during the occupation, not that it matters LOL). You know, we were never a pacifist nation (although the mostly defensive character of the army was proven by the actual history), many of the approaches and strengths are similar to Switzerland which is also armed heavily. Switzerland's strong military - along with the mountains - was a reason why Hitler didn't take Switzerland, ever. We just had somewhat lower mountains, somewhat worse international support etc. in 1938, and we were a somewhat bigger problem for him than Switzerland LOL.

In Czechia, the Protectorate of Nazi Germany, as I hinted, "we" lived a relatively happy peaceful and prosperous life during most of the war, unless you belonged to some 50,000 heroes who were executed in various ways (or among 300,000 Jewish citizens who were eradicated).

          How a Virus Can Save Your Life      Cache   Translate Page      

Humans are in a new arms race against bacteria able to evolve resistance to antibiotics at much faster rates than scientists can develop drugs.1 Antibiotic resistance and multidrug resistance have been driven by number of factors triggered by modern life.

Although overuse of antibiotics in humans is one factor, it's only one piece of the puzzle. In 2017, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) officially banned antibiotic use on confined animal feeding operations (CAFOs) for the purpose of growth promotion. Antibiotic use now requires veterinary prescription.

However, antibiotics are dispensed as usual for the purpose of “disease prevention;” 80 percent of all antibiotics sold in the U.S. are used in industrial agriculture, with industry veterinarians continuing to support routine use.2

Another driving factor may be the particularly wide use of the herbicides, glyphosate and dicamba. Data reveal agrichemicals and antibiotics in combination increase the evolution of resistance. In fact, bacteria may develop antibiotic resistance thousands of times faster after they are exposed to particular herbicides in the environment.3

Field research suggests herbicides enhance the ability of bacteria to become antibiotic resistant and the resistance may be acquired at rates much faster than those predicted under laboratory conditions.4 More than statistics and information, multidrug resistance may be responsible for more than 90,000 deaths in the U.S. every year.5

Multidrug Resistant Organisms May Cause Over 90,000 Deaths Each Year

Since the 1940s,6 antibiotics have been used to treat infectious diseases caused by bacteria. The first released was penicillin. This and others greatly reduced the illness and death from conditions like pneumonia. However, today there are a number of antibiotic resistant bacteria, making treatment less effective and increasing the risk of death.

Although some bacteria are naturally resistant, most gain resistance through genetic mutation. These bacteria are called superbugs and may signal the end of effectiveness of antibiotic treatment. Each year, at least 2 million Americans are infected with antibiotic-resistant bacteria and past statistics suggested at least 23,000 people died as a direct result.7

Many more die from complications of an antibiotic resistant infection. However, a re-estimation of these deaths by Cambridge University now puts the number of annual deaths from drug-resistant infections closer to 90,000.8

Some of the more common antibiotic resistant bacteria are methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), Streptococcus pneumoniae, carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae9 and Clostridium difficile.10 Each of these bacteria is capable of wreaking havoc on your health and potentially causing death.

A typical real-life example would be someone who has undergone a surgical procedure and contracts an infection. What should have been routine can now lead to a life-threatening struggle and medical emergency. However, this is not always the case, as infectious disease epidemiologist Steffanie Strathdee and her husband can attest.11

Viral Therapy Saved Researcher's Life

Evolutionary psychologist Tom Patterson and his wife Stephanie Strathdee were spending a week exploring pyramids and tombs in Egypt when Patterson experienced what appeared to be a bout of food poisoning. However, his condition rapidly deteriorated.

He was first flown to Germany and then to UC San Diego, where both he and his wife were on staff. Imaging and blood tests revealed a soccer-ball-sized cyst in his abdomen crawling with Acinetobacter, one of the most dangerous antibiotic-resistant bacteria.

Rarely found outside of the health care setting, the bacteria can trigger infections ranging from pneumonia to serious blood or wound infections.12 More frequently, this bacterium affects those with a weakened immune system, diabetes or chronic lung diseases.

The end of the antibiotic era has been described as an "unwinnable war" and the genus Acinetobacter epitomizes this trend as it displays mechanisms of resistance to all existing antibiotic classes.13 It was against this bacteria Strathdee began her crusade to save her husband's life.

She first found a centuries-old Soviet bacteriophage cure while searching through PubMed for biomedical journal articles on treating superbugs.14 A bacteriophage refers to a virus that acts as a parasite; it infects the bacteria and reproduces inside it, devouring it in the process.

It was one of several alternative therapies she found for treatment. Strathdee worked with Texas A&M University and the U.S. Naval Medical Defense Command to obtain three bacteriophages able to strike Acinetobacter.

Patterson didn't learn of the treatment methodology until he came out of the coma in which he had been for two months.15 The pair describe their experience as different from most as they were given resources and had connections many don't have. That position of privilege allowed them to tell a positive story at the end of a nightmare.

Strathdee described the process of convincing Patterson's doctors to try this approach as going up against a risk-averse, litigious health care community that worries if an experimental treatment is tried and the patient dies, the physician will be sued.16 In this case, Patterson was at a teaching and research hospital where it was acknowledged he would die unless something drastic was initiated.

Some Viruses Are Natural Bacterial Predators

First written by the ancient Indian philosopher Kautilya in his classic treatise on economics and political science, "The Arthashastra,"17 "the enemy of my enemy is my friend," may have deep significance in the treatment of multidrug-resistant bacteria. While the political implications may have waned in a global economy,18 friendly viruses fighting harmful bacteria may become our best friends.

Also called viral therapy, this is the essence of bacteriophage treatment in which specific viruses are used to fight and kill harmful bacteria. Strathdee is currently conducting two clinical trials on it, one for individuals with ventricular assist devices who are infected with biofilm forming bacteria, and the other for patients with cystic fibrosis who develop antibiotic-resistant infections.

In patients with ventricular assistive devices, the phase I/II clinical trial will test the safety, tolerability and efficacy of bacteriophage therapy at UC San Diego and other teaching hospitals across the U.S. This multi-institution effort is the direct result of Patterson's treatment.19

Bacteriophages, also known simply as phages, are actually the most populous organisms on the planet20 targeting specific bacteria, and have been used for the last 90 years as a means of treating bacterial infections. Essentially, bacteriophages are viruses that infect bacteria and are harmless to humans.

How Phages Control Bacterial Growth

Although historically used, the process is only now being studied. In order to infect the bacteria, most phages have a tail that pierces the bacterium's membrane and inserts viral genetic material.21

Antibiotics work by affecting bacterial cell walls or the cells' protein building machinery, while bacteriophages exploit the bacteria and ultimately destroy it by infecting the cell and replicating itself, causing the bacteria to burst. This releases additional bacteriophages to kill neighboring bacteria.22

A typical cycle takes 30 to 60 minutes and stops when the pathogenic bacteria are eliminated, leaving nothing for the bacteriophage to infect. Bacteriophages are effective against biofilms, layers of aggregated bacteria and other extracellular components protecting the bacteria's cell walls from antibiotics.23

These bacteria form complex communities that may require very high concentrations of antibiotics, and often render infections very difficult to treat. By contrast, some bacteriophages are able to breach the shield and replicate locally, exposing the remaining bacteria to additional bacteriophages and the patient's immune system.

Bacteriophage therapies also have very few reported serious side effects, while all antibiotics have side effects. In combination with bacteriophage therapy, antibiotics may be effective at lower doses.24

Geopolitical Influence Slows Progress

Bacteriophages were discovered nearly simultaneously by Frederick Twort and Félix d'Hérelle. According to Strathdee's literature search,25 d'Hérelle had a difficult personality and tended to anger the medical and science community. Because he had no formal training, some worked to bury his findings.

The bacteriophage therapy was also vigorously used by the former Soviet Union, the Republic of Georgia and Poland, as it was discovered before modern-day antibiotics. By the fall of the Soviet Union, the Golden Age of phage-based therapy was over, with just a few labs continuing the work.26

Since access to penicillin in the Soviet Union was unreliable, Stalin and others embraced bacteriophage therapy to treat infections. As Strathdee describes, at that time, if you supported bacteriophage therapy in the U.S. you were labeled a communist.27

In the early years, bacteriophage therapy was used to treat dysentery and cholera. In one study,28 only 37 percent of untreated individuals suffering from cholera lived, while 92 percent of those treated with bacteriophages survived. With the exception of a few countries, bacteriophage therapy had been abandoned, as a treatment with antibiotics worked exceptionally well — until the last decade.

Bacteriophages are also more difficult to prepare29 as they must be isolated and then grown cleanly. Many of the early commercial products were of poor quality and led to the therapy being discredited.

Since one type of phage can infect only a few species of bacteria, selection has to be meticulously done. The process may take more time than a patient has, especially if they're used as a last resort on ill patients.30

Avoid Being Overly Hygienic

Children raised in an extreme hygienic environment, devoid of dirt and germs, are not able to build up a natural resistance to disease, making them more vulnerable later in life. This theory, known as the hygiene hypothesis, is likely one of the major reasons why allergies and immune system diseases have grown rapidly in the last several decades.

While the hygiene hypothesis simply states that exposure to multiple organisms will bolster your immune system, science is finding the reality is a bit more complex.31,32 However, trying to keep your environment overly sterile may indeed backfire and actually increase your risk of developing acute and chronic illnesses.

Exposure to a variety of microorganisms is one key to developing a strong immune system and a mucus substrate for a symbiotic relationship between beneficial viruses and bacteria. You can avoid being "too clean" and bolster your body's natural defenses by:

  • Educating yourself on the differences between natural and artificial immunity, and making informed decisions about the use of vaccinations.
  • Avoiding unnecessary antibiotics. Remember, viral infections are impervious to antibiotics, which only work on bacterial infections.
  • Letting your child get dirty. Allow your kids to play outside in the dirt (and realize if your kid eats boogers, the world won't end).
  • Avoiding antibacterial soaps and other antibacterial household products as these destroy the microorganisms your body needs exposure to for proper immune function. Simple soap and water are all you need for effective hand-washing. Antibacterial chemicals such as triclosan — which is now banned in hand soaps in the U.S. — are quite toxic and have been found to promote the growth of resistant bacteria and superbugs.
  • Consuming organic, grass fed meats grown without antibiotics.

          Project “Holy Land”, thru Jun 28      Cache   Translate Page      
For nearly two decades, Yaakov (Jacob) Benor-Kalter (1897-1969) traversed the Old City of Jerusalem, documenting renowned historical monuments, ambiguous subjects in familiar alleyways, and scores of “new Jews” building a new homeland. Benor-Kalter’s photographs smoothly oscillate between two worlds, and two Holy Lands, with one lens.

After immigrating from Poland to the British Mandate of Palestine, Benor-Kalter soon found work as a photographer and graphic designer, employed by both the British government and several Zionist organizations. His photographs, taken between 1923 and 1940, established a new visual record, providing a romanticized glimpse into the British colonial endeavor while offering a contemporary view of the plans to create a modern Jewish State in the region.

This exhibition presents a complete photograph portfolio and a selection of postcards featuring some of Benor-Kalter’s most captivating images.
          The Worlds of Arthur Szyk, thru Jun 28      Cache   Translate Page      
Auditorium installation of high-resolution images of select collection items.

Acquired by The Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life in 2017 thanks to an unprecedented gift from Taube Philanthropies, the most significant collection of works by Arthur Szyk (Łódź, Poland, 1894 – New Canaan, Connecticut, 1951) is now available to the world in a public institution for the first time as the Taube Family Arthur Szyk Collection.

Born into a middle-class Polish Jewish family, Szyk lived a life framed by two world wars and the rise of totalitarianism in Europe. A refugee, he ultimately settled in the United States in 1940. Much of his work centered on these experiences. As a miniature artist and political caricaturist, he used motifs drawn from the Bible, history, politics, and culture to pair extraordinary craftsmanship with searing commentary on a diverse range of subjects including Judaism, the American War of Independence, the Second World War, the Holocaust, and the founding of the State of Israel.

The hundreds of artworks, sketches, and painstakingly assembled illustrated books, journals, archival documents, photographs, exhibition catalogs, and memorabilia that comprise this multi-faceted collection are in the process of being examined and catalogued so that they can be made available for research, exhibition, loan, and publication. The current display of high-resolution images of select collection items in the Auditorium of The Magnes presents the public with an unprecedented insight in the many worlds of Arthur Szyk.

Ladies and gentlemen, at this time we ask that you fasten your seatbelts and secure all baggage in the overhead compartments...it's gonna be a bumpy ride! Following a sold-out engagement in 2018, iconic international celebrity airhostess Pam Ann returns to Feinstein's at the Nikko with her latest show, Bing Bong, on Wednesday, June 12 (7 p.m.) and Thursday, June 13 (8 p.m.). Pam's barbed wit has seen her fly many a risky route and negotiate even the most politically incorrect flight path with her blisteringly funny take on the world of airlines and aircrew. Nothing is out of reach of her pristine white gloves, strutting up the aisle with a trolley full of beautifully unpredictable, acerbic airline satire. Tickets for Pam Ann range in price from $45-$85 and are available now by calling 866-663-1063 or visiting www.feinsteinsatthenikko.com.

Pam Ann has evolved since first jetting out of her hometown of Melbourne 20 years ago. Pam-the alter-ego of Australian comedian-writer-producer Caroline Reid-has developed a cult like status both here and overseas with her masterful portrayal of an international hostie.

There's not much Pam hasn't seen or done-from crewing Elton John's private jet at his express request, sharing a stadium stage on a tour of the UK with Cher, and counting Madonna in her legion of devoted fans worldwide. When she's not jet-setting with the stars or flying the world sourcing material for her next performance, she can be found selling-out every stage she hits-from New York's Hammerstein Ballroom to San Francisco's Castro Theatre, Sydney's iconic State Theatre to Melbourne's Athenaeum. She's headlined at the legendary Caroline's on Broadway in New York, performed at the prestigious London Palladium, The Royal Albert Hall and sold out two shows at the 3600 seat Hammersmith Apollo - her largest solo audience to date. True to her status as an international comedy icon, she's toured UK, Ireland, Australia, Hong Kong, USA, Germany, Israel, Netherlands, Denmark, Poland, Austria, Switzerland, Sweden, Iceland, Norway, Finland, Belgium, France, and Canada.

In her native Australia, Pam Ann starred on her own television talk show, "The Pam Ann Show," on the national Foxtel channel. She also hosted Australia's live broadcast of Mardi Gras 2009, which aired in more than two million households.

Among Pam Ann's greatest hits: an advertising campaign and training videos for British Airways, the inclusion of her hit live show, "Come Fly with Me," on Qantas' in-flight programming, and the face of London's Heathrow SkyTeam Terminal. Pam Ann also performed on the first-ever JetPride flight for JetBlue, a first for a U.S. carrier.

Her caustic wit knows no bounds so fasten your seat belts and prepare to take off. The Queen of the Sky guarantees a turbulent flight.

          “Now Is the Time of Monsters”      Cache   Translate Page      
“Now Is the Time of Monsters”
by Jeff Thomas

"In ancient Rome, interregnum was the term given to the period between stable governments when anything untoward might occur, and sometimes did – civil unrest, warfare between warlords, power vacuums and, finally, succession wars. But eventually the dust would settle and the victors, whoever they might be, would at some point restabilize the empire, often with a new map, showing the latest lines of geographic possession.

In 1929, the Italian Antonio Gramsci was in a fascist prison, writing about what he considered to be a new interregnum – a Europe that was tearing itself apart. He anticipated civil unrest, war between nations and repeated changes in the lines of geographic possession. At that time, he was attributed as saying, “The old world is dying and the new world struggles to be born. Now is the time of monsters.”

And, of course, looking back from our vantage point in the twenty-first century, we have no difficulty in confirming that he was correct in his prognosis. The world war that followed brought forward the worst traits in mankind. The sociopaths of the world came centre-stage. By the time the dust had settled, tens of millions were dead.

What we do have difficulty with is recognizing that the same pattern is again with us. National leaders and their advisors are spoiling for war, building up weaponry, creating senseless proxy wars in other nations’ backyards and playing a dangerous game of “chicken” with other major powers.

This will not end well. It never does. Once the shoving-match has begun, it only escalates. At some point, whether it’s the false-flag assassination of an Archduke, as in World War I, or the false flag invasion of Germany by Poland, as in World War II, we can always count on some excuse being created to justify diving headlong into war.

It’s also true that, when empires get into economic trouble that’s too far gone for any viable solution, a trick that’s always employed by political leaders to keep the citizens from removing them from their seats of power, is to start a war. A people will, if they believe their homeland is in peril, accept the “temporary” removal of their freedoms.

Even in the United States, the famed “Land of the Free,” political leaders have routinely imprisoned dissidents in times of warfare. People tend to get behind their leaders in wartime, no matter how undeserved that loyalty might be.

And so, now is the time of monsters, as Mr. Gramsci rightly stated. A time of uncertainty, when countries are in turmoil and would-be leaders are jostling for power with existing leaders. An interregnum.

Troubled times tend to bring out all the crazies – all the sociopathic-types that would find it hard to succeed in stable, prosperous times. In such times, the average person becomes worried that things are not going to turn out well. That’s perfectly understandable. Unfortunately, most people lack both the imagination and the courage to cope with how the times are impacting their lives. They instead rely on others to provide a torch that might help them escape from the darkness.

Not surprising then, that every snake-oil salesman in town sees an opportunity to offer big promises – promises that he has neither the ability nor the inclination to fulfill.

At such times, the people of a country tend to become polarized, placing their faith in one political party or another, hoping that their party will “make the bad stuff go away.” In the US we see, on the liberal side, promises for “free health care for all,” a guaranteed basic income, housing for those who cannot afford it, and an endless stream of promises that, if the government were to implement them all, they will not be able to pay for them, even with 100% taxation from those who presently pay tax.

On the conservative side, we see promises such as “Make America Great Again,” with tax rebates that do not rejuvenate the economy, breaks for firms that have expatriated, but do not fool them into returning, claims to cut budgets, only to increase them, and promises to eliminate debt, only to expand it.

We see presidential elections in which one of the two leading candidates is a textbook narcissist, whilst the other displays all the traits of sociopathy. And we see a waitress elected to Congress by a substantial margin, raised to the status of heroine merely for promising all things to all people, whilst offering no plan as to how that might come about. Record numbers of candidates pour into the political arena, seeking a last grab at power prior to systemic failure.

To be fair, the US is by no means alone in delivering incapable people with nonsensical solutions to the higher offices. In the UK, each leading party states emphatically that a hard Brexit would be a disaster, yet neither party can come up with a working alternative. What they can do, as in America, is point fingers and shout invectives at each other.

In France, riots have become a weekend staple, whilst the disconnected president essentially says, “Let them eat cake,” serving only to create further fury on the street. To be sure, the problem begins at the top. But it doesn’t end there. It sifts down to the proletariat, who, unable to come up with constructive solutions, create their own monsters, trashing the shops and burning the cars of people who had no hand in creating the problem.

But surely this is just a one-off phase, in which the best and brightest are temporarily pushed offstage, but will soon return, yes? Well, unfortunately, no. Historically, a period such as this one is followed by one of increased madness. Historically, the next step is societal breakdown. Riots, secessions and revolutions become commonplace, accompanied by economic collapse.

Out of these events come the worst monsters of all. It’s in the wake of such developments that the people of any country then turn away from those that made the empty promises and toward those who promise revenge against an ill-defined group who are characterized as having caused the problems. That’s when the Robespierres, the Lenins, the Hitlers – the greatest monsters – are swept into power. They invariably deliver the same message – that they’ll seek out the aristocracy, the gentry, the patricians, and strip them of their positions and possessions.

Invariably the way that this shakes out is not that the average man rises up, taking his “fair share” of the spoils. Instead, the leaders take the spoils and the proletariat are reduced to an equality of poverty. Our friend Mr. Gramsci found himself imprisoned by Benito Mussolini and died from illnesses incurred in prison. Unfortunately, his approach was to complain, but remain, as his country deteriorated around him. This proved, for him, to be the worst of choices. And, so it is today."

          Grow your indie game with Google Play      Cache   Translate Page      

Posted by Patricia Correa, Director, Platforms & Ecosystems Developer Marketing

Google Play empowers game developers of all sizes to engage and delight people everywhere, and build successful businesses too. We are inspired by the passion and creativity we see from the indie games community, and, over the past few years, we've invested in and nurtured indie games developers around the world, helping them express their unique voice and bring ideas to life.

This year, we've put together several initiatives to help the indie community.

Indie Games Showcase

For indie developers who are constantly pushing the boundaries of storytelling, visual excellence, and creativity in mobile we are announcing today the Indie Games Showcase, an international competition for games studios from Europe*, South Korea and Japan. Those of you who meet the eligibility criteria (as outlined below) can enter your game for a chance to win several prizes, including:

  • A paid trip and accommodation to the final event in your region to showcase your game.
  • Promotion on the Google Play Store.
  • Promotion on Android and Google Play marketing channels.
  • Dedicated consultations with the Google Play team.
  • Google hardware.
  • And more...

How to enter the competition

If you're over 18 years old, based in one of the eligible countries, have 30 or less full time employees, and have published a new game on Google Play after 1 January 2018, you can enter your game. If you're planning on publishing a new game soon, you can also enter by submitting a private beta. Submissions close on May 6 2019. Check out all the details in the terms and conditions for each region. Enter now!

Indie Games Accelerator

Last year we launched our first games accelerator for developers in Southeast Asia, India and Pakistan and saw great results. We are happy to announce that we are expanding the format to accept developers from select countries in the Middle East, Africa, and Latin America, with applications for the 2019 cohort opening soon. The Indie Games Accelerator is a 6 month intensive program for top games startups, powered by mentors from the gaming industry as well as Google experts, offering a comprehensive curriculum that covers all aspects of building a great game and company.

Mobile Developer Day at GDC

We will be hosting our annual Developer Day at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco on Monday, March 18th. Join us for a full day of sessions covering tools and best practices to help build a successful mobile games business. We'll focus on game quality, effective monetization and growth strategies, and how to create, connect, and scale with Google. Sign up to stay up to date or join us via livestream.

Developer Days

We also want to engage with you in person with a series of events. We will be announcing them shortly, so please make sure to sign up to our newsletter to get notified about events and programs for indie developers.

Academy for App Success

Looking for tips on how to use various developer tools in the Play Console? Get free training through our e-learning program, the Academy for App Success. We even have a custom Play Console for game developers course to get a jump start on Google Play.

We look forward to seeing your amazing work and sharing your creativity with other developers, gamers and industry experts around the world. And don't forget to submit your game for a chance to get featured on Indie Corner on Google Play.

* The competition is open to developers from the following European countries: Austria, Belgium, Belarus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Israel, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Romania, Russia, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Ukraine, and the United Kingdom (including Northern Ireland).

BGŻ znikł z nazwy banku. Klamka zapadła

Marka BGŻ przetrwała 43 lata. Francuski właściciel zdecydował we wtorek, że nie będzie mu już potrzebna - uchwalono na walnym zgromadzeniu akcjonariuszy.

Trump dogaduje się z Chińczykami, a Kongres wręcz przeciwnie. Giełdy w kropce

We wtorek rano amerykańskiego czasu prezydent Trump dał sygnał, że rozmowy z Chinami są „produktywne”, by potem parlamentarzyści zagrozili sankcjami. Gra w dobrego i złego policjanta powiększa niepewność na rynkach akcji.

Ponad dwa miliardy złotych z naszych kieszeni podzielone. Wyniki drugiej aukcji mocy

Jacek Frączyk

Za kilka lat prąd zdrożeje o kolejną kwotę. Będziemy płacić elektrowniom za gotowość. Właśnie rozstrzyga się ile konkretnie. W 2022 roku trochę mniej niż rok wcześniej w przeliczeniu na kilowat, ale łącznie zebrało się już ponad pięć miliardów złotych. Zamiast 10 zł możemy zapłacić 13 zł miesięcznie.

          Fighting Talk: Brexit and civil disorder      Cache   Translate Page      

“We should cut the heads off the politicians,” said the waiter in Corfu to us, as EU-imposed austerity crushed Greece in 2010. Before the week was out there were riots in Athens, buildings were set on fire and three bank employees burned to death.

Thankfully, we’re nowhere near that stage, but if you lift the lid off social media you’ll see the pot is bubbling ferociously. Britain is split in two, each half calling the other all sorts of names. Most of these ranters qualify for jury service and the franchise; one trembles at the thought of “direct democracy.” One in four of the population is said to suffer from a mental disorder and to judge by Facebook it’s plausible.

But in a way, hardly surprising. Far from seeking to reunite the country, professional politicians in the UK have been fomenting discontent among Remainers and have even advised EU leaders on how to subvert the Referendum result.[i]Is it a coincidence that the Daily Mail has been given a new editor who has U-turned the paper’s line and now characterises Brexiteers as “saboteurs” leading us to an “abyss”?[ii]

Even the Eurocrats are infected. Mr Van Rompuy, who looks as if he couldn’t decapitate a boiled egg, fantasises about holding a knife to our throat[iii]; Mr Tusk, even less loved in his native Poland than here[iv], smirks at a vision of “those who promoted Brexit” in Hell[v]. Their intemperate language is a clue to the fact that there is not one but two crises brewing.

The first is the European Union’s. Jean Monnet’s dream of a Europe that could never make war with itself again, has been caught in the trap of confusing aim with method. Full political unification has been pursued clandestinely and with an almost suicidal obsession, like Captain Ahab after his White Whale. As a prelude, the single currency was forced into being despite the unreadiness of participants like Greece and Italy, both of which fudged their economic data to qualify and have suffered for it since.

The EU’s appetite for centralised control and aggrandisement remains unslaked (would C P Snow have dubbed them “the labradors of power”?) Straight after the centenary of the Armistice, Frau Merkel returned to her theme of a European intervention force.[vi]Now she is after an aircraft carrier[vii]- just when it is rumoured that China plans to sell off her own to Pakistan.[viii]How does one justify the expense of such capital ships, with their increasing vulnerability?[ix]

And the interference in the Ukraine that has heightened tensions between the Western alliance and Russia – see the military build-up in the region on both sides[x][xi]- hasn’t put the EU off its plan to foster supranational order elsewhere, too: “Africa is the future,” said Mr Juncker in his 2018 “State of the Union” address, urging more collective arrangements there of the kind that were the foundation stones of the EU.[xii]

In the midst of this, Brexit and the common man threaten to spoil the grand project of the philosopher-kings. Again and again, on shows like Question Time, ordinary people are bluntly challenging their elected representatives to do what was solemnly promised in 2016.

This brings us to the second, local crisis. By affirming (not only orally but in the official pamphlet[xiii]) that the Referendum would be held once only and that the result would be implemented whatever the outcome, our leaders effectively turned it into a binding plebiscite; and now they wish to resile.

That has raised and dashed expectations in the most emphatic way, and the implications are dangerous. If this vote is delegitimised, then so are all the ones passed in Parliament, many of them by a smaller margin than four per cent[xiv].

What would the consequences be? Former Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab said on last week’s Question Time that there will be a “day of reckoning” if Brexit is nullified[xv], and he may be thinking of deselections, Party membership cancellations and the shattering of the two-party system itself. But some think, or worse, wish, that it could go further – even Dr Richard North has said, perhaps only half-jokingly, “It is not only ideas that develop in the provinces – so do revolutions.”[xvi]

Fortunately, revolutions and civil wars don’t just happen, and a good thing too, as whatever the outcome the process is horrific; and often long-drawn-out, because unlike a war there’s nobody to make peace on behalf of the whole country. They need an evil constellation of factors, but that discussion is for another occasion.

Having said that, one of the possible triggers is major financial dislocation. Not just the vindictive awkwardness in trading arrangements that the EU appears to be preparing for us, cutting off its nose to spite its face, but the kind of long-cycle economic downturn that Irving Fisher[xvii], Nicolai Kondratiev[xviii]and others have theorised.

The role of debt has been overlooked by many economists and Professor Steve Keen has estimated that only some 20 out of 10,000 professionals foresaw the 2008/2009 Global Financial Crisis. For those who think the crisis is over because of Quantitative Easing and Modern Monetary Theory, it’s worth noting that global debt is now bigger than ever – some three times the size of the world’s GDP.[xix]Despite high levels of money-printing we are not yet seeing significant inflation, but that is because economic demand is dropping and debt servicing is a growing challenge; the turnover of cash is slowing and offsetting the effects of monetary inflation.[xx]Also, the US dollar, the world’s reserve currency, is being snapped up by foreign countries scared of local currency depreciation/default, so at present those dollars are not cascading back into the USA and boosting the price of everything, says analyst Martin Armstrong.[xxi]

Harder times are coming: goodbye cheap energy, a booming consumer economy and abundant public services; hello to cheating WASPI women of their promised State pensions, trimming the social benefits of the gilets jaunes and so on. Ordinary wage-earners now need additional financial support to make ends meet; real hourly wages have pretty much stalled over the last 40 years since the multinationals saw massive opportunities for capital in global workforce arbitrage. Sir James Goldsmith warned[xxii]about the socio-economic consequences at the time of GATT in 1994, and now it has all come to pass.

It will go on until it can’t, but who knows when or how that will happen?

When the times come that “try men’s souls”, the search is on for an ideological map to find our way out. Power relations come under scrutiny. In the eighteenth century, the American colonists adopted the Enlightenment analysis that rooted power in the consent of the people, so that when General Gage defended his lumping American rebel officers with their men by saying that he recognised only ranks derived from the King, George Washington replied that for his part he could not conceive any rank “more honorable that that which flows from the uncorrupted choice of a brave and free people - the purest source and original fountain of all power." Five months later came the publication of Tom Paine’s “Common Sense”, arguing on the same lines and setting the movement alight.

Ian Geering QC’s piece this week on the Bruges Group site (10 March) follows this tradition.[xxiii]It is a normative political philosophy – this is how we feel things ought to be, rather than how they have been for most of recorded history. Did the Americans complain of taxation without Parliamentary representation? Leeds, Birmingham and Manchester shared their plight, while Old Sarum had seven voters and two MPs.[xxiv]Up to the twentieth century, only a fraction of the adult British population could vote at all, and had to resort to other means to register their dissatisfaction: as Tony Benn observed at the time of the Maastricht capitulation, “Riot has historically played a much larger part in British politics than we are ever allowed to know […] Unless we can offer people a peaceful route to the resolution of injustices through the ballot box, they will not listen to a House that has blocked off that route.”[xxv]

And that, as of last night (12 March 2019), is where we are: watching a cloth-eared Parliament rejecting an "open prison" Withdrawal Agreement yet fighting against a clean break, either way negating what the people decided upon.

Yes, the people are divided – by their very nature, votes are divisive; the key to peace is to accept them as decisive. But those with access to power and the media have worked hard to jemmy the cracks wider. The process of re-radicalisation has started, and this time the State seems either unconscious of the peril, or (like George III) sure of its ability to patronise and repress.

Britain nearly had a conflagration in 1789. The philosopher Richard Price, a friend of Paine, gave a French Revolution-inspired speech: "A Discourse on the Love of Our Country", looking at the fundamentals of politics and, like Paine, rooting power in the people. The reception was enthusiastic (a term with distinct connotations of danger, in those days.)

The State was alive to the danger, and acted. Certain gentlemen came to advise Price on his future conduct. Burke began to compose a justification for the British Constitution in rebuttal. 1789 marked the last time a woman was burned at the stake (in London, for coining.) Radical groups such as the London Corresponding Society were infiltrated by government agents and ultimately suppressed; yet even with the brakes on, the vehicle of power was pushed inch by inch, over the next century, towards electoral reform and democratisation.

Answering the radicals who took revolutionary France as their model, Edmund Burke articulated a pragmatic scheme for the Parliamentary government we now have, a balance between the royal Executive and popular representation, and between constituency representation and mere delegation. This circumvented the bloody conflict of first principles that played itself out on the other side of the Channel.

But Burke was addressing the problem of how we govern ourselves, not whether we should be able to govern ourselves at all; even pragmatism has its limits. And on this latter issue, the people - firmly assured by their representatives that this vote would be decisive - made their determination. The task of their representatives was then to carry it through, while closing the divisions among the people as they went forward. They have failed on both counts. The issue has now turned from UK versus EU, to people - a confused, disunited, squabbling people - versus Parliament itself.

All our democratic progress is in danger of being thrown away.

For if the solution to the threat of revolution in Britain as France burned was to fashion its own sustainable form of democracy, then to discard democracy is to wind the clock back to pre-revolutionary days. And then the clock will start forward again, towards fresh crisis – and solutions that have already failed.

Hi Karen,
I guess you wrote that quite a long time ago, have you made any progress?
In my research, I have found that ethnic Germans comprised 10 to 20 percent of many Polish cities. "Der Flucht" happened in 1945, all Germans had to flee into Germany, a "strange place", since many German families had already been in Poland for 300 - 400 years. There truly was an ethnic German diaspora.
I looked at the Vistula River on the map, it passes through many places. I think I saw that it went through Gdansk, through Torun ("Thorn" in German) and passed above Warsaw. So your ancestors could be from any of those places. Have you looked into the various Voivodeships in Poland? Maybe that river passes through several Voivodeships? You may already be familiar with this link which shows them: http://www.lostshoebox.com/poland/online-records/

          Traffic Management Systems Market Emerging Growth and Top Key Vendors to Watch- EFKON AG, Siemens AG, Nuance, Hitachi, and Iteris in 2017-2025      Cache   Translate Page      

Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/13/2019 -- The mounting rise in the number of personal and commercial small and heavy vehicles on the roads across the globe has led to an immense rise in the need for effective management of these vehicles so as to track and manage traffic and maximize performance, operations, and reliability of all aspects concerning road networks. These requirements are driving the global market for traffic management systems globally.

In the past few years, a vast variety of traffic management systems have been introduced in the global market, covering aspects such as vehicle detection, tunnel traffic management, ramp metering, and bridge traffic management. With governments across the globe putting increased focus on the effective management of traffic as a way of reducing pollution, fostering social and economic development by reducing the time spent by their populations on roads, keep their limited road networks running smoothly, the demand for effective traffic management systems has significantly increased recently. In this report, Transparency Market Research presents a thorough assessment of the growth prospects of the market in present times as well as the near future.

Global Traffic Management Systems Market: Drivers and Restraints

The demand for effective traffic management solutions is expected to rise at a promising pace in the next few years, thanks to the vast rise in vehicle ownership globally and the rising awareness regarding the social and economic losses that economies incur due to traffic jams. The Texas A&M Transportation Institute estimates that Americans spend about 5 bn hours and are required to spend on an extra 3 bn gallons of fuel on an average due to traffic congestions. These numbers translate to extra expenses worth nearly US$120 bn every year. Europe incurs losses amounting to nearly 1% of its GDP every year due to traffic congestions according to the Mobility & Transport department of the European Commission.

The situation is worse in emerging economies across regions such as Asia Pacific and Latin America wherein a vast rise in disposable incomes is promoting vehicle ownership but the outdated infrastructures, rapidly mushrooming urban setups, and slow pace of infrastructural developments are making traffic a major challenge for the population. Owing to these factors, and the fact that traffic management systems can have a significant impact on the issue of road congestions, the demand for traffic management solutions is expected to rise at a promising pace in the near future. The market is also expected to benefit from the rising number of solutions at affordable costs, which could allure consumers across emerging and cost-conscious economies as well.

EU food safety check in Poland finds fault with documents


          We are the Hands and the Feet and the Heart Of Jesus..Where is He Leading ? Linda Maynard      Cache   Translate Page      

Where would I choose to go on a 6 month Missions trip, if the opportunity was presented to me? That is the subject up for discussion on KB this week.

My immediate thought was Poland. Both sets of grandparents are from that country in Europe. I feel a strong sense of connection with the Polish people.

My main focus for the trip would be to talk to the people. I would share as one brought up in the catholic tradition, about my own experience of finding the Lord Jesus as my Savior. I would like to talk to them, preferably in their own homes. I would share, one on one, about how I had a level of understanding about Jesus and how I came to realize that head knowledge of who He is differed from the heart knowledge, which I have come to embrace.

In this, I would pray that my discussions would whet some appetites to further study about Jesus, especially through the Bible. Perhaps they might, as I did, come to know Jesus rather than just know about Him. Giving mental ascent was what I did and I surmise that many Catholics do the same. Through non-confrontational discussion; I would pray that our times of fellowship would cause them to hunger for more.

As I left, I would be confident that even though my trip did not involve mass meetings, it would have touched the hearts of families and from there, they could spread the good news of the Gospel with their community. I would pray for that to become a ripple effect and in that many Catholics in the area, would come to a genuine faith in Jesus Christ.

Because there was no steadfast “rule” about the 6 month period, I would like to split up my time in Poland and Tapachula Mexico.

I’ve come to know a couple, who are missionaries in Tapachula.  Hope and Steve are the parents of my daughter in law.

They themselves had been on several trips, through their church. As time passed and as circumstances changed, they felt a pull to become full time missionaries.

The focus of what they do is children. They have established 2 boy’s homes and 1 girl’s home in the same neighborhood.

You may wonder where the children come from, as they are without their parents and yet the homes are not orphanages.

They come from prisons.

Yes, you heard that right, from prisons. They have not committed any crimes, their parents have. And the way things are governed in that region is that, when an adult is convicted of a crime and sent to prison, the whole family has to go with them.

As you can imagine, they are deplorable places for adults, let alone children. In this dark place, they witness despicable behavior and they themselves are victims of all forms of abuse…sexual abuse being the major one.
So, through Mission on the Move, and the efforts of Hope and Steve, these children come to a place of hope with a future.

To get into to the Home, they have to be granted permission by the parents.

There, they are “cleaned up”…body, mind and soul. They are taught things like basic manners, as well being provided with regular schooling. They learn to trust adults. They receive counseling to deal with the aftermath of the squalor they have lived in. whether through the prison and the lifestyle of their parents previous to their incarceration. Most of all, they are introduced to the Savior Jesus Christ and receive instruction in the bible.
Some of them arrive as young as 5 and others at an older age. As of now, 3 boys are attending college and I know of 1 girl, who has graduated from college.

The home provides them everything that a
