          The Left Wants to Pick a Fight It Cannot Lose      Comment   Translate Page      

There are so many things about the modern world that are different from the 1920’s and 1930’s that I’m reluctant to make comparisons between the two eras. But there is one commonality that has me very concerned as we head into the 2020 presidential election. I’m worried about what will happen if a significant fraction of our economic elites in the business community conclude that their interests are better protected by siding with Donald Trump. This isn’t an ordinary progressive concern. It’s usually taken as a given that rich business executives will mostly side with the Republican nominee for president. The reason this upcoming election is different is because Trump and his political movement are different, and in many ways un-American.

This WikiPedia entry on the economics of fascism isn’t perfect, but it can serve as my starting point:

The first fascist movements arose in the last years of World War I. They were a form of radical nationalism carrying a promise of national rebirth, they blamed liberalism, socialism, and materialism for the decadence they perceived in society and culture, and they expressed an appreciation for violence and the role of leadership and willpower in shaping society…

…Fascism rose to power by taking advantage of the political and economic climate of the 1920s and 1930s, particularly the deep polarization of some European societies (such as the Kingdom of Italy and Weimar Germany), which were democracies with elected parliaments dominated by supporters of laissez-faire capitalism and Marxian socialism, whose intense opposition to each other made it difficult for stable governments to be formed. Fascists used this situation as an argument against democracy, which they viewed as ineffective and weak. Fascist regimes generally came into existence in times of crisis, when economic elites, landowners and business owners feared that a revolution or uprising was imminent. Fascists allied themselves with the economic elites, promising to protect their social status and to suppress any potential working class revolution. In exchange, the elites were asked to subordinate their interests to a broader nationalist project, thus fascist economic policies generally protect inequality and privilege while also featuring an important role for state intervention in the economy.

As a caveat here, I want to be clear that I’m not predicting an imminent reprise of the Holocaust or an outbreak of World War Three. I hope we can agree that fascism would have been undesirable even without extermination camps and wars of aggression. What troubles me is the potential for a breakdown in our basic system of checks and balances which protects our civil rights, economic freedom, and First Amendment rights.

The commonalities I see between today and the interwar period should be pretty obvious to you too. We have two sides of a political divide that are increasingly unable to work together, making a functional government harder and harder to assemble. The American public now holds Congress in extreme low regard and is beginning to doubt the integrity of many other core institutions, including our law enforcements agencies, courts, intelligence community and even the media.

One side of the political divide is promoting “a form of radical nationalism carrying a promise of national rebirth.” They are attacking liberalism and socialism. The attack on materialism doesn’t originate at the top with Trump, obviously, but it is a key element of the religious conservatives’ critique of American society. They call it “secularism,” and they are Trump’s most ardent and reliable supporters.

On the economic front, the Trump movement isn’t consistently aligned with big business (on free trade and cheap labor, for example) but their anti-regulation and anti-tax policies are a way of promoting the elites’ interests and protecting their social status.

Since the Great Recession hit in 2007-2008, the Democrats have been gradually moving in a more economically populist direction, and their current crop of candidates is collectively far to left on economics than in any previous presidential election cycle. While the party doesn’t resemble the #Occupy Movement, it is still perceived as threatening. Some of the leading Democratic contenders, like Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, are explicitly threatening to the business community, and proudly so.

I’m not making an argument against populist progressive Democrats when I say that I worry about the consequences if we reach a tipping point where business leaders conclude they need to fall in with Trumpism in order to protect themselves from a bigger threat.  Just in terms of freedom of the press, our major media outlets are big business conglomerates now, and if they don’t rigorously defend our First Amendment rights, we will lose a free press and potentially our rights to free expression.  That’s what I hear echoing when I read that the fascists protected the economic elites and “in exchange, the elites were asked to subordinate their interests to a broader nationalist project.” I’d like to think that our business elite is different from the folks in Italy and Germany during the rise of fascism. I hope that they have enough patriotism and respect for our Constitution to see that it would be a mistake to align with Trump. But this isn’t something I have a lot of confidence in, and that’s what is keeping me up at night.

I guess this is less of a prescription than a warning. If the left in this country wants to run on an economically populist platform that scares the bejesus out of our big business community, they cannot afford to lose. We’re in a bad position now as a country because Trumpism by its nature corrupts the morals of its adherents and undermines support for our rights and institutions. When it begins to undermine our elites’ support for civil rights and the rule of law, that’s when it gets truly dangerous.  There is more to think about here than just needed reforms to our laws. We have to think about how what we do has an influence on how others react.

It’s looking like the left is going to inspire quite a reaction.  Are we prepared to face the consequences if we don’t win that battle?

          Aaron Carter says he has his own experience with Michael Jackson       Comment   Translate Page      

Aaron Carter talked to TMZ. After a fake Wade Robson twitter account run by someone from Italy tweeted Aaron Carter, Aaron went on a rant to TMZ about how he wanted to punch Wade Robson. Aaron said that Wade must be lying because Wade previously defended Michael and Aaron can't see Michael doing those horrible things since his own experience with Michael was nothing but loving, caring, and innocent. Aaron also said that he slept in the same room as Michael when he was 15, nothing happened, and if it did he would have told the truth because kids blab about everything.

Aaron has now softened his position on Leaving Neverland. He said that he was too aggressive because everyone has their own stories and he wasn't a fly on the wall, so he can't know what actually happened. Aaron says that he actually has his own experience with Michael and will talk about in a book he is writing about his own life. When asked if it includes abuse, Aaron says that you will just have to find out. Aaron says that he will always have Michael's back though even if it's unflattering. Aaron says his own family knows what it is and just never talks about it, but the Jackson family/estate doesn't know. Aaron says he's not worried if it's negative because "do I ever seem worried about what I say and I keep it real as fuck." Aaron's message to the Jackson estate is that "Just stay strong. I love you guys. And even if I say something you guys don't like it's still my truth and you guys will just have to accept it."

          Russophobia, A WMD (Weapon Of Mass Deception)      Comment   Translate Page      

Authored by Jean Ranc via The Strategic Culture Foundation,

Russophobia, as psycho-social-political pathology, is diagnosed as a disorder in The West since before the 1000-year-old Roman-Orthodox religious schism and most recently manifested with a vengeance in the course of the 2013-14 with Edward Snowden’s revelations of mass surveillance by the US and its covert activities leading to the Ukraine coup with Russophobia used thereafter as a weapon of mass deception to inflame this latent pathology in the public.

After more than a year since we first heard the BBC “breaking news” about the “Russians Poisoning the Skipals”, all we have are allegations, but there is still no real evidence to present before a judge and jury for a just trial, only media propaganda which has provoked even more fear and hysteria meant to distract people from the government’s bungling and high level of anxiety over Brexit by once again blaming Russia. Never-the-less, it prompted politicians to administer instant sanctions against Russia as punishment. That first day, the "evidence", presented in the usual clipped, "authoritative" British accents, included interviews with a conservative British MP, then the former US Ambassador to Russia, Alexander Vershbow (2001-05), now with the notoriously hawkish US-based think tank, the Atlantic Council. Thus, the three of them: the BBC “journalist” and the two “experts”, colluded to transform false allegations into "facts"... fueled, as always, by their perpetual prejudice, RUSSOPHOBIA, in the course of their propaganda war to force Russia to surrender to American-led Western Domination or else: have their economy destroyed & their people suffer. Indeed, it is a threat to the whole world played to the discord of rattling nuclear swords with a chorus of vindictive Russian oligarchs, whom Putin expelled for robbing the Russian people. So, now living in London as expats, they would seem to be the more likely culprits. All the while elsewhere in London, thanks to our “special US-UK relationship”, Julian Assange has been excommunicated and imprisoned in a tiny “cell” at the Ecuador embassy for revealing embarrassing American secrets via Wikileaks.

There we have it: the poisoning of our minds by the media and politicians which are owned and controlled by the US-UK-EU 1%, who benefit from Western Hegemony. So, these deluded few are now desperately defending it from the rising powers led by Russia and China with India not far behind demanding a multi-polar, democratic world order.

My search for the roots of this particularly vicious and extremely dangerous hate campaign began in a Dartmouth College Russian Foreign Policy course, which led me to the book, “Russophobia: Anti-Russian Lobby and American Foreign Policy” by San Francisco State University Professor Andrei P. Tsygankov (2009). And there, the detoxification of my mind began as I studied his deft, well-documented deconstruction of the political propaganda disseminated “by various think tanks, congressional testimonials, activities of NGOs and the media” (preface p. XIII)

Then in Italy the following winter, I discovered the work of the Swiss journalist, Guy Mettan, in the Italian geopolitical journal, LiMes: an excerpt from his book, “Creating Russophobia: From the Great Religious Schism to Anti-Putin Hysteria” (2017). There, Mettan informs us that this psycho-social pathology in Western Civilization” goes back more than 1000 years: to the division of Christendom between the Orthodox and Roman churches. Indeed, his research into the depths of history confirms the diagnosis by our renowned American psychiatrist, Robert Jay Lifton, in his 2003 book, “Superpower Syndrome: America’s Apocalyptic Confrontation with the World”. Therein, Lifton states: “More than merely dominate, the American superpower now seeks to control history. Such cosmic ambition is accompanied by an equally vast sense of entitlement, of special dispensation to pursue its aims.” (p.3) And Mettan’s analysis of Russophobia also underscores the work of University of Chicago Professor John J. Mearsheimer, our leading international relations “realist” in his three Henry L. Stimson lectures at Yale University November 2017: “The Roots of Liberal Hegemony”, “The False Promises of Liberal Hegemony” and “The Case for Restraint”: with his book, “The Great Delusion: Liberal Dreams, International Realities” published in 2018.

But what about “Russian Aggression” in Ukraine & Crimea?

In the first place, it was the astute Mearsheimer, who, in the Sept-Oct 2014 Foreign Affairs, informed us “Why the Ukraine Crisis is the West’s Fault: The Liberal Delusions That Provoked Putin” (pp 77-89), but the American foreign policy establishment, together with ambitious politicians and the me-too media, paid no heed and continues to repeat its fabricated “facts”.

Never-the-less, Mearsheimer is backed up by Richard Sakwa, Professor of Russian and European Politics at the University of Kent. In Sakwa’s book, “Russia Against the Rest: The Post-Cold War Crisis of World Order”, 2017, we turn to the section on “Reality Wars and American Power” on p. 217 to read: “It does indeed seem that Russia and Western elites live in totally different worlds, divided by different epistemological understandings of the nature of contemporary reality. The Ukraine crisis crystallized the profound differences between Russian and Atlanticist understandings of the breakdown and its causes.” And he continues on p. 218: “Elite and policy-maker perceptions and attitudes forged in the Cold War years sustain these legacies and frame the discussions of such crucial issues as NATO enlargement, democracy promotion in the post-Soviet area, and strategic arms talks.” Adding that these “are no longer so much legacies as self-regenerating narratives and modes of discourse that preclude a more open-ended understanding of the dynamics and concerns of Russia today.”

Karl Rove: “We’re an empire now; we create our own reality.”

[In 2004, journalist Ron Suskind wrote in The New York Times magazine that a top White House strategist for President George W. Bush—identified later as Karl Rove, Bush’s Deputy White House Chief of Staff—told him, “We’re an empire now, we create our own reality.”]

Thus, we’ve become trapped in a contrived “reality” promulgated by neo-conservative warriors under cover of neo-liberal “democracy-spreading-humanitarian-interventionists” to justify an American Empire promoting itself as the indispensable “Liberal World Order”. However, under that global order, as Sakwa points out on p. 219: “If a foreign power is considered to have violated ‘international order’, then it can be overthrown” as a rationale for American “regime change” anywhere around the world: whether to control the supply of copper in Chile or oil in Iran. And, with its eye on Russia’s vast oil, gas and other natural resources, America claims the right to threaten Russia by ringing it with weapons which we would not abide were the Russians to place missiles in Mexico…as the Soviets did in Cuba to defend it after our “Bay of Pigs” invasion that brought humanity to the brink of nuclear war. Thus, Russia was defending itself in Ukraine against further NATO expansion while Crimean citizens, by majority vote in a democratic referendum, chose to rejoin Russia as they had been one country ever since Catherine the Great…except for an interval in the '50s when Crimea was” gifted” to Ukraine while they were all members of the Soviet Union.

“Ditching Solzhenitsyn, Defender of Russia”

And not to forget that in 1974, after being expelled from the Soviet Union, Alexandr Solzhenitsyn and his family fled first to Zurich then to Vermont in 1976 and lived on a farm near Cavendish, where he continued to write and publish his work. Meanwhile, Mettan, as a journalist covering events related to Russia, became quite distressed over "the widespread prejudices, cartloads of clichés and systematic anti-Russian biases of most western media." And he went on to say that “the more I traveled, discussed and read, the wider I perceived, the more the gap of incomprehension and ignorance between Western Europe and Russia became evident. 

"That was why, during the 1990s, I was shocked by the way the West treated Solzhenitsyn. For decades, we had published, celebrated, and acclaimed the great writer as bearing the torch of anti-Soviet dissidence. We had praised Solzhenitsyn to the skies as long as he criticized his native country, communist Russia. But as soon as he emigrated, realizing that he preferred to isolate himself in his Vermont retreat to work rather than attending anticommunist conferences, western media and academics began to distance themselves from the great writer.

"The idol no longer matched the image they had built and was becoming a hindrance to their academic and journalistic career plans. And once Solzhenitsyn had left the United States to go back to Russia and defend his humiliated, demoralized motherland that was being sold at auction, raising his voice against the Russian 'Westernizers' and pluralist liberals who denied the interests of Russia to better revel in the troughs of capitalism, he became a marked man, an outdated, senile writer, even though he himself had not changed in the least, denouncing with the same vigor the defects of market totalitarianism as those of communist totalitarianism.

"He was booed, despised, his name was dragged through the mud for his choices, often by the very people who had praised his first fights. Despite that, against all odds, against the most powerful powers that were trying to dissuade him, Solzhenitsyn defended his one and only cause, that of Russia. He was not forgiven for having turned his pen against that West that had welcomed him and felt it was owed eternal gratitude. A dissident today, a dissident wherever truth compelled, such was his motto. This deserves to be remembered." Mettan, pp. 15-16 in “Creating Russophobia”.

Russophobia: akin to Racism

From another perspective: Mettan’s chapter on "German Russophobia" set me thinking that this "Western Supremacy" political-cultural pathology known as Russophobia is like the racism which I knew growing up in totally segregated Oklahoma. Until in high school, I became so perplexed and appalled by the curtain of hate and “justifications” in which we were smothered: the Negro schools on the other side of town? and why were there separate waiting rooms, drinking fountains & restrooms in bus and train stations?...that I began poking holes in the curtain to see what was outside...and found a book in the library: "South of Freedom" by Carl Rowan, an African-American Minneapolis Star Tribune journalist, describing his journey from South to North. So, thanks to what I learned from Rowan, I began to tear the whole damned curtain down...at least in my mind.

Whom the Gods would destroy, they first drive mad?

So, here’s a Swiss journalist punching a hole in this wall of Russophobic Western Supremacy… and through that gaping hole, we are reminded that the Russians are Europe’s neighbors who sacrificed more than 26 million of their own lives to save Europe, America and Russia from the Nazis. These are not poor "niggers" from the Eurasian ghetto we've been trying to club into submission as second-class citizens of “The Liberal World Order” dominated by US; they're nuclear-armed and no longer willing to sit at a separate, inferior table with no vote and no voice over who makes the rules...nor are China, India and Brazil. And last year, while the wave of Russophobic hysteria over alleged “Russian poisoning” was rolling out of the UK and engulfing the Western world in the latest siege of mass madness…with only Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the British Labor party, having the courage to stand up in Parliament on the Ides of March and demand Evidence! only to be pilloried by the mindless politicians and media…led by the once esteemed BBC. And the week following the August 7, 2018 Trump-Putin Helsinki summit, will surely go down in psychiatric circles as another case of mass media-political delusions led by cheer-leader-in-chief, Rachel Maddow of MSNBC.

Meanwhile, not to forget that it was Hearst newspaper propaganda that whipped the American public into a war frenzy to support our first step in empire-building: our 1898 intervention in Cuba’s war for independence from the Spanish Empire which had dominated all of Latin America for 500 years. As the former NYTimes journalist/bureau chief in Istanbul, Berlin & Central America, Stephen Kinzer reminds us in his latest book "The True Flag: Theodore Roosevelt, Mark Twain, and the Birth of American Empire", Twain, Booker T. Washington and even Andrew Carnegie leading a handful of other anti-imperialists...were not able to prevail against Roosevelt with his Rough Riders and the Hearst newspapers’ war propaganda.

Regime Change Comes Home

Never-the-less, after a very long run of American “regime change” abroad leaving a bloody trail of destruction, dictatorships and chaos from Iran in 1953, when we joined with the British to overthrow the democratically-elected President Mohammad Mossadegh to maintain the Brit-US control of its oil…on through Guatemala, Vietnam and Chile…to name a few of our interventions…we were back for a second round with “coalitions of the willing” or not? in the Middle East where our regime-change machine managed to plow its way through Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya…before breaking down in Syria. Until now it’s been brought home again, renovated and renamed “RussiaGate” for another attempt at removing a President for trying to mend US relations with Russia. Though even after more than a year of Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller’s investigations accompanied by such cinematic support as the movie, “Felt”, another “Watergate” re-run. Did anyone else notice the resemblance between “Felt” and Mueller? And despite the media’s commemoration of its 44-year-old “moment of courage” with the movie “The Post” to promote Trump’s ouster, our democratically-elected President, as of this writing, remains in power. However, in this rush to “regime change”, didn’t the our “ruling elite” read Jane Mayer’s “The Danger of President Pence” in the 10/23/17 New Yorker? At least the 70s' “ruling class” was smart enough to remove an unqualified Vice President Spiro (who?) Agnew…before “regime changing” Nixon and replacing him with the more or less benign Gerald Ford.

A Florentine Epiphany

But back to last January in Florence, Italy, when I was hiking in the hills beyond the Piazzale Michelangelo, with its spectacular view of that Renaissance city and its centerpiece, the Duomo, I came across the Villa Galileo, which had been his last home after his trial as a “heretic”, during which to save himself from torture and execution, he was forced to deny his helio-centric vision and henceforth lived under “villa arrest”, from 1631 until his natural death in 1642. While pondering his fate, I continued walking along the gently rising, ever-narrowing road between ancient stone walls overlooking villas and olive groves until I reached the peak, where I felt as if I were standing on top of the world as I contemplated both the Arno and Ema river valleys far below and where I swear I heard Galileo declare: “The world does not turn on an American axis!”

The 21st Century Inquisition

So how is it that we now have contemporary Inquisitors persecuting so many truth tellers…such as Edward Snowden, our electronic age “Solzhenitsyn?” in Russian exile; Chelsea Manning, imprisoned some 7 years for revealing US brutality in Iraq; Julian Assange confined to his Ecuadorian Embassy exile in London since August 2012; Katharine Gun, a whistleblower attempting to stop the Iraq invasion, who faced 2 years of British imprisonment before her case was dropped; James Risen, former New York Times journalist who was persecuted by our “justice” system for revealing our government’s surveillance of US!

Any Good Sense Left?

So, do we the people have enough good sense & independent thinking left to follow the advice of Henry David Thoreau?

“Let us settle ourselves, and work and wedge our feet downward through the mud and slush of opinion, and prejudice, and tradition, and delusion, and appearance, that alluvion which covers the globe, through Paris and London, through New York and Boston and Concord, through church and state, through poetry and philosophy and religion, till we come to a hard bottom and rocks in place, which we can call reality.”   

“Walden” 1854

          The Bannon Link: Using Trump Playbook to Attack Pope Francis      Comment   Translate Page      

Yesterday, I wrote,

Benedict's poisonous letter; Cardinal Sarah's toxic bile: these are part and parcel of a bigger initiative, coordinated and heavily funded by right-wing Catholic money, especially in the U.S., to Trumpize the Catholic church. Bannon is at the very center of this.

I also featured a tweet by Richard Engel of NBC News announcing that NBC is going to do a report on Bannon tomorrow (Sunday, 14 April) with the following focus:

Steve Bannon is on a new crusade to reform the Vatican. Critics say he, and a movement, are using the same playbook that helped President Trump into the White House against @Pontifex.

Now today, the digital edition of The Guardian has been featuring all day long as its lead article a report by Mark Townsend with the title "Steve Bannon 'told Italy's populist leader: Pope Francis is the enemy.'" Townsend writes, 

Donald Trump's former chief strategist Steve Bannon advised Italy's interior minister Matteo Salvini to attack the pope over the issue of migration, according to sources close to the Italian far right. 
During a meeting in Washington in April 2016, Bannon – who would within a few months take up his role as head of Trump's presidential campaign – suggested the leader of Italy's anti-immigration League party should start openly targeting Pope Francis, who has made the plight of refugees a cornerstone of his papacy. 
"Bannon advised Salvini himself that the actual pope is a sort of enemy. He suggested for sure to attack, frontally," said a senior League insider with knowledge of the meeting in an interview with the website SourceMaterial.

 Townsend also notes, 

Bannon has steadily been building opposition to Francis through his Dignitatis Humanae Institute, based in a 13th-century mountaintop monastery not far from Rome. 
In January 2017, Bannon became a patron of the institute, whose honorary president is Cardinal Raymond Burke, an ultra-conservative who believes organised networks of homosexuals are spreading a "gay agenda" in the Vatican.

In a statement entitled "In the Dark Times," Josh Marshall wrote yesterday,

Over the last three weeks a series of events have taken place which may seem individual but need to be viewed in a joined context. Together they've put us in a much different, darker place as a country. 

Yes. And I want to propose that we would be short-sighted if we did not see that, at this same dark time in American political life, the circle around Ratzinger has gone on the attack in the Catholic church — as if emboldened by Trump's recent "victories" (notably, with the handling of the Mueller report) that are propelling the darkness in the U.S. now and emboldening Trump and his allies around the world.

NICKELODEON’S NEW ORIGINAL TV MOVIE, BIXLER HIGH PRIVATE EYE,
STARRING JACE NORMAN AND ARIEL MARTIN,
PREMIERES FRIDAY 10TH MAY 2019
ON NICKELODEON AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND

Share it: #BixlerHighPl


Nickelodeon’s new original TV movie, Bixler High Private Eye, starring Jace Norman (Henry Danger) and multihyphenate actress, singer and author Ariel Martin, a.k.a. “Baby Ariel,” is set to premiere on Nickelodeon Australia and New Zealand on Friday 10th May 2019 at 7:30am (NZ time; Australian time TBA)! The live-action comedy follows Xander DeWitt (Norman), an inquisitive teenager who has a knack for solving mysteries, as he tackles his biggest case yet when his father suddenly disappears.

In Bixler High Private Eye, locally titled Un detective alla Bixler High in Italy, Xander’s sleuthing skills get put to the test when his dad, Russell, leaves for work one day and vanishes without a trace. Frustrated by his attempts to find his dad, Xander’s mom sends him to go live with his grandfather (Ed Begley Jr.), a retired private investigator. It’s in his dad’s hometown that Xander finds a surprising lead in the case and builds an unexpected partnership with Kenzie Messina (Ariel Martin), an investigative reporter for the school newspaper.


Bixler High Private Eye marks Norman’s fifth starring role in a Nickelodeon TV movie, and his first as an executive producer. He currently stars in Nickelodeon’s Henry Danger, the number-one live-action show on TV with Kids 2-11 and Kids 6-11, and the network’s longest-running live-action sitcom. Norman is also the co-founder of Creator Edge Media, an influencer marketing agency.

Ariel Martin, a.k.a. “Baby Ariel,” is an award-winning actress, singer, entrepreneur and author who has catapulted into mainstream media.

WHEN TROUBLE IS ON THE WAY, ONE LITTLE GIRL WILL SAVE THE DAY IN ABBY HATCHER, NICKELODEON’S BRAND-NEW ANIMATED PRESCHOOL SERIES PREMIERES ON NICK JR. AUSTRALIA


Share it: @NickJrANZ #AbbyHatcher


Nickelodeon’s brand-new animated preschool series, Abby Hatcher (created and produced by Spin Master Entertainment), tells the story of a little girl with a big heart who helps her friends, the amazing and quirky Fuzzly creatures, fix their mishaps, learn from their mistakes and negotiate their emotions. The series made its Australian debut on Monday 8th April 2019 at 8:30am on Nick Jr. Australia, with new episodes continuing to air weekdays at 8:30am on the Nick Jr. channel in Australia. Abby Hatcher (26 episodes) features a social-emotional curriculum highlighting empathy, compassion and problem-solving skills.


In Abby Hatcher, Abby is an eternally optimistic, kind-hearted seven-year-old girl who loves to lend a helping hand to others and accepts everyone--no matter how different they are. In Abby’s world, humans coexist with Fuzzlies, incredible creatures that each have their own unique abilities that make them special, and Abby’s parents’ hotel is home to many. Together with her best Fuzzly friend Bozzly, Abby goes on wild adventures to fix Fuzzly mishaps and help them in any way she can. Whenever a problem arises Abby and Bozzly always say, “Fuzzly trouble can’t delay, to the rescue, save the day!”



In the series premiere of Abby Hatcher, “When Abby Met Bozzly/Hair Flair Everywhere,” Abby meets the best friend of her dreams, a fuzzly named Bozzly, for the first time. Then, when the hotel’s salon owner Mrs. Melvin closes the salon for the day, Abby tries to help Harriet, a hair-obsessed Fuzzly, find a new hobby, when all she really wants is to style. In additional new episodes, Mo and Bo are mistaken for a snow monster, and, after taking a tumble, Otis suffers a fear of heights and becomes scared to use his elevator.

Online at nickjr.com.au and on the Nick Jr. App, parents and children can find out more about Abby Hatcher, as well as sing and dance-along to music videos and watch short-form video clips from the series. Fans can also like the official Nick Jr. Australia and New Zealand Facebook and Instagram pages for the latest Nick Jr. news, highlights, video clips and more.

Nickelodeon’s new original TV movie, Bixler High Private Eye, starring Jace Norman (Henry Danger) and multihyphenate actress, singer and author Ariel Martin, a.k.a. “Baby Ariel,” is set to premiere on Nickelodeon Italy (Italia) on Thursday 25th April 2019! The live-action comedy follows Xander DeWitt (Norman), an inquisitive teenager who has a knack for solving mysteries, as he tackles his biggest case yet when his father suddenly disappears.

In Bixler High Private Eye, locally titled Un detective alla Bixler High in Italy, Xander’s sleuthing skills get put to the test when his dad, Russell, leaves for work one day and vanishes without a trace. Frustrated by his attempts to find his dad, Xander’s mom sends him to go live with his grandfather (Ed Begley Jr.), a retired private investigator. It’s in his dad’s hometown that Xander finds a surprising lead in the case and builds an unexpected partnership with Kenzie Messina (Ariel Martin), an investigative reporter for the school newspaper.


Bixler High Private Eye marks Norman’s fifth starring role in a Nickelodeon TV movie, and his first as an executive producer. He currently stars in Nickelodeon’s Henry Danger, the number-one live-action show on TV with Kids 2-11 and Kids 6-11, and the network’s longest-running live-action sitcom. Norman is also the co-founder of Creator Edge Media, an influencer marketing agency.

Ariel Martin, a.k.a. “Baby Ariel,” is an award-winning actress, singer, entrepreneur and author who has catapulted into mainstream media. She has captured an audience of over 40 million across all her social media platforms, and over 282 million views on her YouTube videos alone.

          DR BOYCE WATKINS New Book: IF 'NIPSEY HUSSEL' Had Been MURDERED BY A WHITE MAN Who Was Tied To The MOST MURDEROUS ORGANIZATION OF BLACK PEOPLE In The Past 100 YearsShooting Him 6 TIMES As Nipsey BEGGED FOR HIS LIFE And Then Finally KICKING HIM IN THE HEAD As His Black Body Laid On The Ground, His Life Evaporating Away      Comment   Translate Page      


Dr Boyce Watkins Shares One FLAW/FRAUD With "The Nation Of Islam":

They BOTH Value "BLACK UNITY" [Black Psychological DISARMAMENT] In The Name Of "BLACK UNITY" [Faux 'Authentically Black MOBILIZATION] To Which UPON HEARING ANOTHER BLACK PERSON TALKING IGNORANTLY About A CONSPIRACY THEORY - They Value THIS BLACK PERSON'S SUPPORT Over CORRECTING HIM FOR ACCURACY..............So THIS BLACK PERSON'S "BLACK VALUABLES" Are No SO EASILY HARVESTED.


DEAR DR BOYCE WATKINS:

The Hardest Undergrad Class That I Ever Took Was ECONOMETRICS.
If ECONOMETRICS [Which I Am Sure You Took] Mixes ECONOMICS With CALCULUS, With The GOAL OF "APPLYING SCIENTIFIC MEASURE" [And Limits] To ECONOMIC THEORY ----- WHY Are YOU, A "Finance Phd" So RARELY HEARD "DELIMITING 'AUTHENTICALLY BLACK Rhetoric"?

The KEY ISSUES THAT DR BOYCE WATKINS REFUSES TO "DELIMIT"



1) HOW MUCH 'WEIGHT' DID RONALD REAGAN'S CIA HAVE TO PUSH IN ORDER TO DESTROY THE BLACK COMMUNITY WITH 'CRACK COCAINE'? 
BEFORE I Go On My 5 Mile Walks With My Dog Both Days Of The Weekend I TAKE One "Naproxen Sodium" Tablet So My Knees Don't Hurt For The Rest Of The Day.

THE LABEL WARNS:

  • Take 1 Caplet Every 8 To 12 Hours Wile Symptoms Last
  • For The First Dose You May Take 2 Caplets Within The First Hour
  • DO NOT EXCEED 2 CAPLETS IN ANY 8 TO 12-HOUR PERIOD
  • DO NOT EXCEED 3 CAPLETS IN A 24-HOUR PERIOD

WHY IS IT THAT BOYCE WATKINS - And Other BLACK CON-MAN-ISTS Never Tell You "HOW MUCH WEIGHT RONALD REAGAN HAD TO PUSH ----- SO THAT THE BLACK COMMUNITY COULD BE DESTROYED BY CRACK - IN THE 1980'S. ................FOR THEM TO STILL BE TALKING ABOUT THIS 30 YEARS LATER?

How Did BARACK OBAMA Managed To:


  1. OPPOSE REPARATIONS
  2. Get CON-MAN-ISTS Like Ta-Nehesi Coates And Earl Ofari Hutchenson To ATTACK 'THE NATION OF ISLAM' When OBAMA TEAMED WITH 3 WHITE EUROPEAN COLONIZERS To RUN A COUP IN AN AFRICAN NATION (Libya)
  3. YET OBAMA'S BLACK SUPPORT NEVER FELL BELOW 82% IN 8 YEARS?

WHAT IS THE 'OPPORTUNITY COST' OF THE 'BLACK COMMUNITY VALUABLES' THAT HAVE BEEN HARVESTED INTO 'AMERICAN POLITICS', THANKS TO MOLESTED "BLACK INSTITUTIONAL INTEGRITY"?

WHAT LIMITS DOES DR BOYCE PLACE UPON 'CHRISTOPHER PLATT' AS WATKINS REALIZES THAT HIS PERSONAL INTEGRITY IS INSEPERABLY LINKED TO HIS 'YOUR BLACK WORLD' / 'BLACK BUSINESS SCHOOL' BRAND?


(Now That They Are Out Of POWER) Dr Boyce CLAIMS He Does Not Like THE OBAMA'S Because "They Are NOW Doing NOTHING FOR BLACK PEOPLE".

Dr Boyce Calls MICHELLE OBAMA An "Uncle Tom" - Like OPRAH

THE WHITE MAN PUBLISHER Of The MICHELLE OBAMA BOOK Who Made A $69 Million Dollar Bet And TOOK IN More Than $130 Million IN MICHELLE OBAMA BOOK SALES

NOTE: I have a stack of recent "NY Times" papers piled up that I need to rifle through in order to find the article about the WHITE MAN who convinced his publishing company that BY PAYING THE OBAMA'S A HANDSOME ADVANCE that there are enough WHITE LIBERALS and "WE ARE IN THE WHITE HOUSE NEGROES" who would MAKE HER BOOK a BEST SELLER - even though she NEVER TELLS US HOW SHE FELT when HER HUSBAND RAN A COUP IN LIBYA - with FULL KNOWLEDGE that the BLACK RACIAL SERVICES MACHINE that is focusing on POLICE VIOLENCE AGAINST BLACK PEOPLE would LOOK THE OTHER WAY about a US COUP along with THE UK, ITALY AND FRANCE in an AFRICAN NATION

This May Be A REPRINT In "The Australian" Newspaper But They Have A PAYWALL So I Can't Access The Article

          The Great Illyrian Revolt      Comment   Translate Page      
A year before three Roman legions were famously destroyed in the Teutoburg Forest, a three-year rebellion in the Balkans came to an end. The Great Illyrian Revolt took 15 Roman legions more than three years to conclude, at a considerable cost in men and resources. This book by Jason Abdale is the first to cover this forgotten conflict.



The author starts with a detailed discussion about the Illyrians. While many modern Albanians claim they are descended from them, they were, in fact, a large group of around sixty tribes living in the countries that made up the former Yugoslavia, as well as Albania. The Greeks and Romans would have described them as barbarians, but that only meant they were foreigners or outsiders. They lived in towns and cities, traded across the Mediterranean, had a thriving culture, and their armies were well organised with modern warships that dominated the Dalmatian coast.

Their weakness, like most of Rome’s opponents, was that they never united as a nation. The individual tribes were culturally distinct, and their practices reflected the geography of the region. Those closest to Greece had become largely Hellenised, while the rest broadly split between the Dalmatians in the mountains of modern-day Bosnia, Croatia and Montenegro – and the Pannonians who lived in the more open plains of northern Serbia and eastern Croatia, including parts of modern Hungary.

The little we know about the Illyrians was written by outsiders and is undoubtedly biased. This is supplemented by archaeology, but the story of the Great Revolt is based mainly on Roman sources. The author makes several suggestions and suppositions, which may, or may not, be justified.

The Romans first came into contact with the Illyrians early in their expansion across Italy. However, they took a serious interest because of the actions of Illyrian pirates as the Romans moved into Greece. The Republic fought several wars against Illyrian tribes before creating the Province of Illyricum in 59BC. This controlled much of the coast and some of the internal trade routes. Mineral deposits, including gold and silver, were an important resource that the Romans wanted to secure. 

Illyrian towns were usually built on hilltops like Shkodra in Albania. This is my photo from the later castle. 
The Roman civil wars were fought over part of these territories, and Caesar Augustus extended Roman control into Pannonia after a tough campaign that ended in 9BC. The so-called ‘Pax Romana' followed, and while there was plenty of conflict across the empire, Illyricum was relatively peaceful. 

This changed in 6AD when Augustus recruited Illyrian troops for a planned campaign in Germany, led by Tiberius. This also denuded the province of regular soldiers. Burdensome Roman rule had increased dissatisfaction, and when it became apparent that they outnumbered the Romans, rebellion broke out. It was led by Bato of the Daesidate tribe. We know little about him, but he succeeded in uniting many of the tribes and defeating local Roman units.

There followed three years of warfare in which the Illyrians defeated the Romans several times. The conflict sucked in ever larger numbers of Roman troops and their allies, including the Thracians. However, as ever, Roman persistence and numbers triumphed. The fifteen legions deployed is about 75,000 men, plus auxiliaries, allies and support units. Fortunately for the Romans, Arminius’s revolt in Germany started just after Bato had surrendered. The Empire would have struggled to contain two rebellions of this size. 

The author does his best with limited sources. His educated guesses of names and places are explained so the reader can make up their own minds. He has an informal writing style, which may irritate some readers, but it doesn't detract from the book's readability. My only criticism would be the use of modern and historical analogies, which are sometimes tenuous, overlong, and add little to our understanding of the period. 

Overall, this is a very welcome book, which opens up an interesting and little explored period of Balkan history.  

I have a small DBA Illyrian army in 15mm, which is looking a bit dated. Warlord and Relic Miniatures do some light infantry types, which fought with Alexander the Great. These look fine for the Hellenised southern tribes, but the further north you go, Celtic influences would be more apparent. This is reflected in the Magister Militum range in 15mm. A bit of mix and match with some conversions looks like the only realistic approach.

Romans are not a problem. Either from the Republic for the earlier wars or the Imperial Romans for the Great Revolt. This was a period when the equipment of the legionarius was evolving, but probably not as far as the Lorica Segmentata as depicted on the book cover. The dished oval shield would also be more common than the squared edged version, which only started to be adopted in the early 1st Century.


Reading the book inspired me to paint the 28mm Roman tent I purchased at the Varpartnak show from Magister Militum. A lovely model that paints up well.

Regional qualifiers

Athletes from Inland Northwest colleges and area athletes from other schools who have met the qualifying standards and declared to compete in the NCAA regional competition May 30-31. Conference champions (CC) earn entry without meeting the standards. The 10,000 meters, decathlon and heptathlon are not contested at the regional level, but are filled with athletes who meet either the automatic or provisional qualifying standards. Top-five finishers in individual events and top three relay teams from regionals advance to the NCAA championships. A select number of at-large athletes who didn’t achieve those finishes will fill the national fields, based on the national descending order of performance lists.

В одном из ресторанов в центре Киева обокрали главу крупной итальянской энергокомпании - СМИ

Известного итальянского бизнесмена, генерального директора крупной энергетической компании Eni S.p.A Луиджи Барбериса обокрали в Киеве 11 апреля в ресторане авторской японской кухни Menya Musashi на улице Лютеранской в Киеве. Вместе с кошельком у него украли и верхнюю одежду. Иностранец приехал в Украину обсудить планы по инвестициям в разработку месторождения сланцевого газа и строительство ветроэлектростанции.

Sixth Generation Fighters:

The USAF NGAD/PCA has a proposed FY20 budget of $1B.  It had been predicted to be $1.2B.  The AETP engine often associated with the NGAD also received a budget of $870M.  The F-22 and F-35 both funded their engines internally, unlike the NGAD/PCA.  However, Jane's takes the stance the NGAD is being rethought.

The US Navy's Next Generation Fighter program is shifting from $5M in FY19 to a proposed $20M in FY20.

The US Navy will finish its AOA this summer for its 6th gen fighter.

Leonardo wants a role in Britain Tempest.

International interest in the British Tempest is growing.

The Franco-German FCAS may be a bad idea, or so goes one opinion.


FGFA (Pakistan):

Pakistan is outlining its plans for developing a 5th gen fighter.

Su-57:

Putin - goodness me - considers the Su-57 the best plane in the world.

The Russians have already created an export version of the Su-57.  They may be trying to export it to Turkey and China.

?!?!  The Russians are stating the first batch of Su-57s will be delivered to a frontline unit in 2019.

The Russians are refuting the Su-57 has been redeployed to Syria.

YF-23:

Why did the YF-23 lose to the YF-22 in the Advanced Tactical Fighter competition?  The only man to have flown both the F-22 and the YF-23 talks explains.

Model 401:

Scaled Composites' Model 401 is on the east coast at a Navy flight test facility.  Why?

F-117:

The F-117 has been out flying about (with a plexiglass canopy, btw).

The Drive noted the interesting bit of the choice of emblem on the F-117.

B-2: 

Listen to a B-2 test drop nuclear weapons.

B-21:

The USAF has selected which airbases will be hosting the B-21.

F-22:

Rapid Raptor: the program to allow the F-22 to deploy anywhere, well, rapidly.

24 Raptors conducted an elephant walk in Alaska.

Will Langley AFB be the center of F-22 training?

F-35:

General Fick is the new head of the F-35 program.

The Pentagon is considering selling the F-35 to Poland, Greece and Romania.

A continuous software upgrade program would speed capabilities to the F-35, but delay the purchase of aircraft.

The F-35 is expected to hit an 80% availability rate in Sept 2019.

The F-35 has the capability to deploy towed decoys from under its stealthy skin.

Some are strongly arguing to buy the F-35 instead of the F-15X.

48 F-35As, 10 F-35Bs and 20 F-35Cs are in the FY20 proposal.

The USAF wants 12 more F-35As than the budget provided for.

The USAF has conducted the first fast/hot crew swap exercise for the F-35A.

The IG is slamming the F-35 program office for allowing contractors to manage government assets.

The F-35 will take a starring role in an exercise in Greece.

China claims it is not the reason countries are buying the F-35.  Actually, about that...

The USS Wasp carried at least 10 F-35Bs into the South China Sea.  The USS Wasp has been operating near the disputed Scarborough Shoal.

The USMC may deploy F-35Bs off the deck of the Korean amphibious ships.

The US Navy F-35Cs that achieved IOC are only ready 5% of the time...

The readiness of the F-35C is improving, supposedly.

The British are monitoring the situation about the Japanese F-35 crash.

Italy's Deputy PM  defended the F-35 purchases.

The Italian F-35As in Sardinia get close ups.

Italian F-35As participated in the 'Lightning Thunder over Europe' exercise.

How did Italian F-35 pilots feel about their participation in Red Flag exercise?

Japan just purchased the JSM antiship missile for its F-35s.

Japan declared IOC for its first F-35A unit.

Japan had its first F-35 crash.  The wreckage has been located, but salvage and investigation will be dauntingEfforts are still underway to try to find the pilot.  Japan has grounded its F-35As. The aircraft that crashed was the first F-35A assembled by Japan.  Here's an update.

Poland is considering the F-35 for its Harpia program.  In fact, they want to outright buy 32 of them.


The first two F-35As for South Korea have arrived in country.

Switzerland will evaluate the F-35 for its new fighter requirement this summer.

Turkey's F-35 deliveries may get pausedStrike that: the deliveries have stopped of parts.  The US has stated buying the F-35 and the S-400 missile system are not compatible.  In the mean time, the US military continues to train Turkish F-35 pilots. Congress again has warned Turkey they cannot have the F-35 and the S-400 missile.

If Turkey gets cut, the F-35 program can progress just fine. Or will it?  How problematic is it for Lockheed?  What next?

BAE has begun Meteor and Spear integration on the F-35.

Lockheed received a $264M contract to support South Korea's F-35s.

META:

What aircraft does the USAF need to defeat Russia and China?

          An upcoming Brontë Mistress      Comment   Translate Page      
Publishers Weekly reports a new and upcoming Brontë-related novel:
PW is first to report that, five days after receiving the manuscript, Atria’s Daniella Wexler preempted a debut historical novel, Brontë’s Mistress by Finola Austin, based on the true, heretofore untold story of Lydia Robinson and her affair with Branwell Brontë. According to the publisher, “the novel gives voice to the courageous, flawed, complex woman slandered in Elizabeth Gaskell’s The Life of Charlotte Brontë as the ‘wicked’ elder seductress who corrupted the young Brontë brother, driving him to an early grave and bringing on the downfall of the entire Brontë family.” Danielle Egan-Miller at Browne & Miller negotiated the deal for world English and audio rights. (Liz Hartman)
Keighley News reports Easter activities at the Parsonage: 
We're really enjoying the spring sunshine at the moment, as are some early Easter visitors to the museum.
Some schools have already broken up for the Easter holidays, and as such the museum is bustling with visitors.
We’ve got free talks and walks through the holiday period so visitors can enjoy 20-minute talks at 2pm every day, on a range of subjects, depending on the specialist interest of our wonderful and knowledgeable museum assistants and volunteers.
You might get to hear about life and death in Haworth, learn about the Bronte servants, or the early years of the Brontë siblings. Each talk is unique!
On Wednesday April 24 instead of the talks we will be leading a guided walk up onto Penistone Hill (weather permitting!) to get a sense of the landscape which was so inspirational to the Bronte family.
And also on holiday Wednesdays we have our popular Wild Wednesday drop-in workshops. In the first workshop you’ll be able to make Easter bunny cards, and the second workshop continues the Easter theme with the opportunity to make beautiful Paper Easter Eggs – much healthier than chocolate ones!
All these activities are free with admission to the museum.
Spring also brings the return of our Late Night Thursdays, where you get to experience the museum after hours. These late nights occur on the third Thursday of every month, so our first this year is April 18 – just a few days before Charlotte Brontë’s 203rd birthday!
Visiting the Parsonage that evening will be characters who knew Charlotte well – Tabby, the Brontës’ faithful and long-serving housekeeper, and John Brown, the sexton and Branwell’s drinking partner – and they’ll be sharing their knowledge about life in the Parsonage with Charlotte and her sisters.
After 5.30pm admission is free to visitors who live in the BD22, BD21, and BD20 postcode areas and Thornton, birthplace of the Brontës. Last admission is 7pm.
Spring is also a fantastic time to experience our new audio experience, which features the poems of Emily Brontë set to music by The Unthanks.
The experience is free with admission to the museum – you simply pick up the audio equipment from the shop desk, where you’ll be given an easy-to-follow map, and then you head out in Emily’s footsteps up to Penistone Hill. You can book ahead via the website if you want to guarantee a particular time.
The reviews have been overwhelming positive, with plenty of visitors tweeting lovely comments, whilst The Guardian reviewer described it as ‘quite incredible’. High praise indeed!
And finally, we were all very excited last week when Frank Cottrell Boyce paid us a visit to discuss plans for the work he’ll be doing with us in the second half of the year. (Diane Fare)
The Guardian reviews the reality show Just One Night: The human heart has hidden treasures
In secret kept, in silence sealed;
The thoughts, the hopes, the dreams, the pleasures,
Whose charms were broken if revealed.
Charlotte Brontë, Evening Solace

Blond, good set of boobs, blue eyes, good figure, good personality.
Stevie, 23, Just One Night (BBC Three)

Some human hearts are simpler than others. And a good thing too: living in a world full of Brontës would be exhausting. (Lucy Mangan)
It's undoubtedly a tough genre to get right. Todd uses two literate protagonists, the mostly chaste Tessa (Josephine Langford) and the brooding, tattooed Hardin (Hero Fiennes Tiffin), as stand-ins for the uneasy lovers of classic literature found in such novels as "Wuthering Heights," "Jane Eyre" and "The Great Gatsby."
The Irish Times and grand Irish homes:
Tarbert House in Kerry has been in the Leslie family since 1690. Ursula Leslie, a founder of the America-Ireland fund that she says “has put a lot of money into Ireland,” returned here with her late husband John in 1970. A retired barrister, she used the tax relief to help put the ancestral roof in order as well as repairing 13 of the house’s many windows – through which in 1854 the newly-married Charlotte Brontë must have gazed over the wooded parkland. (Mary Leland)
The Daily Mail publishes a story of how Julian Assange hid on Kathy Lette's attic before seeking asylum in Ecuador's embassy:
She described her frustration with his refusal to read women's literature, adding: 'When he was in Wandsworth prison I sent him in a big box of books by Jane Austen, the Brontë's, all my favourite female authors and said "now that you're a captive audienceread these books." (Joe Middleton & Ross Ibbetson)
A passing Brontë reference in the Financial Times
I known as the Mistral roars down the village's narrow streets; it made me feel as if she and I were two characters in a Brontë novel with a Mediterranean setting. (...)
It was the time of year when the fierce wind known as the Mistral roars down the village's narrow streets; it made me feel as if she and I were two characters in a Brontë novel with a Mediterranean setting.
More After (the film) reviews:
Pero al igual que la historia no acaba de convencernos, tenemos que remarcar que en varias escenas de la película, los protagonistas citan y conversan sobre las novelas ‘Cumbres borrascosas
It's undoubtedly a tough genre to get right. Todd uses two literate protagonists, the mostly chaste Tessa (Josephine Langford) and the brooding, tattooed Hardin (Hero Fiennes Tiffin), as stand-ins for the uneasy lovers of classic literature found in such novels as "Wuthering Heights," "Jane Eyre" and "The Great Gatsby."’, de Emily Brontë, y ‘Orgullo y prejuicio’, de Jane Austen. Dos clásicos de la literatura que por el guión podemos entender que fueron modelos para la historia de amor entre Hardin y Tessa Y es cierto que no solemos tener diálogos de este tipo, en este estilo de películas. (Clara Herrador on HappyFM) (Kurt Russell) (Translation)
It's undoubtedly a tough genre to get right. Todd uses two literate protagonists, the mostly chaste Tessa (Josephine Langford) and the brooding, tattooed Hardin (Hero Fiennes Tiffin), as stand-ins for the uneasy lovers of classic literature found in such novels as "Wuthering Heights," "Jane Eyre" and "The Great Gatsby." (Caroline Seadman, Catholic News Service).
Inspired by “punk edits” of Styles on the internet (fan edits where celebrities are photoshopped and covered with tattoos and piercings), Todd wrote a fanfiction where Styles wasn’t in a boy band but was a college bad boy who seduces—and eventually falls in love with—Tessa, an innocent freshman who lives in his dorm. She called the story After. “It was more along the lines of a modern-day Pride and Prejudice and Wuthering Heights than anything to do with the actual Harry Styles,” she says. (Jason Pham in StyleCaster)
Not that he's your typical bad boy, though, since he seems to have very literary tastes. Spotting a book on Tessa's shelf, he comments, "The Great Gatsby, that's a good book." He's also able to quote from Wuthering Heights and engage in a spirited classroom argument with Tessa, about Pride and Prejudice, in which the subtext is inescapable. (Frank Scheck in The Hollywood Reporter)
After,” which wasn’t screened in advance for critics, also falls into that desperately referential category of love story that name-checks Austen and the Brontes as if that automatically places itself in the same lineage of swoon-worthy classics. (Robert Abele in The Wrap)
Dessuten er han selvoppnevnt ekspert på trøblete romanhelter i britisk litteratur; Mr. Darcy fra «Stolthet og fordom» (Jane Austen) og Heathcliff fra «Stormfulle høyder» (Emily Brontë) og dessuten er han alltid iført en Ramones-T-sjorte. På spørsmål om hvem han elsker høyest i verden svarer han selvsagt «meg selv». En sånn fyr må man jo bare falle for. I bøker. Og på film. (Inger Betzrud in Dagbladet) (Translation)
Il tutto citando principalmente due libri: Cime tempestose (Ah, quanto ci manca il simpatico, vecchio Heathcliff!) e Orgoglio e pregiudizio. Emily Brontë e Jane Austen. Attrazione per l’eccesso e salutare equilibrio. Senza mai scegliere fino in fondo… (Rosa Baldocci in Amica) (Translation)

BookRiot lists some 'must-read' literary biographies:
The Brontë Myth by Lucasta Miller
Okay, I’d rather read about the Wollstonecrafts/Shelleys, or the Peabodys, because I think the Brontës are a bit overrated…but like the Plath biography, which was a biography of her biographies, this book tries to demystify the myth that surrounds the Brontës. (Sarah Ullery)
Cherwell reviews Madeline Miller's Circe :
The narrative thrust of the novel is essentially that of a Bildungsroman, and within that tradition Circe seems a Grecian equivalent of Jane Eyre. (Jenny Scoones)
L'Est Republicain (France) reports how the upcoming rehearsals for the Bernard Herrmann opera Wuthering Heights in Nancy will be open and free.  The Telegraph & Argus explains how the cameras installed on the Black Bull have been reported. Tea Time Ruminations posts about Jane Eyre. Jane Eyre's Library shows a Russian translation of the novel. Vijesti (Montenegro) reviews the performances of Wuthering Heights in Cetinje.

From mpalothia.net

Against All Authority and Repression!

In Turin and Trento, 14 people are accused of forming a subversive association, inciting crime, and possessing, manufacturing and transporting explosives to a public place. Furthermore, the operation “Scripta Manent”, where the public prosecutor’s office demands a total of 204 years in prison for the attacks of the Informal Anarchist Federation and the operation “Panico”, where 3 comrades are accused of having attacked a fascist library with an explosive device, is still running.

Those who have decided to oppose any domination in the social conflict must live with the constant uncertainty of sooner or later being held accountable for their own actions by the opponents of freedom and self-determination. The idea and the longing for a society liberated from exploitation and oppression cab then be nipped in the bud.

This is especially the case for the anarchist movement in Italy. This is being tackled by the state. The affected prisoners are to be buried alive in their cells with draconian sentences. Their accomplices and the solidarity environment unequivocally profess their permanent enmity against the regime with regard to their kidnapping. The understanding of an anarchism that has set itself the goal of fundamentally criticizing, denouncing and attacking society and its morals of alienation and incapacitation also has an international component. Therefore, the responsibility and solidarity for comrades who fall into captivity lies with all those who recognize themselves in the will to subvert and the ideas of freedom. Yes, the lived subversion puts us in danger, but it also gives us the liberating possibility and moments of self-empowerment and self-determination.

“I claim being anti-authoritarian, individualist, for insurrection and the destruction of this lurid and fetid existent and of the State-Capital! Forever your enemy! For Anarchy!”

– Gioacchino Somma, defendant in Operation Scripta Manent

Aggressive Solidarity, For The Revolt!

For a Hostile May and a Whole Life Full of Subversion!

Declaration of Florence: For an International Front NATO Exit The risk of a vast war which, with the use of nuclear weapons, could mean the end of Humanity, is real and growing, even though it is not noticed by the general public, which is maintained in the ignorance of this imminent danger. A strong engagement to find a way out of the war system is of vital importance. This raises the question of the affiliation of Italy and other European countries with NATO.

My husband... before I met him I was fascinated by France. The first time he took me to Italy I fell in love with Venice and the Dolomites. I remember when I stepped out of the train station in Venice, I felt like I was in a dream - it was so surreal - finally in the place I had read about and seen in movies, it didn't seem real. I've been hooked ever since!

Background: The Hispanic/Latino population in the US is experiencing high rates of obesity and cardio-metabolic disease that may be attributable to a nutrition transition away from traditional diets emphasizing whole plant foods. In the US, plant-based diets have been shown to be effective in preventing and controlling obesity and cardio-metabolic disease in large samples of primarily non-Hispanic subjects. Studying this association in US Hispanic/Latinos could inform culturally tailored interventions.

Objective: To examine whether the plant-based diet pattern that is frequently followed by Hispanic/Latino Seventh-day Adventists is associated with lower levels of adiposity and adiposity-related biomarkers.

Methods: The Adventist Multiethnic Nutrition Study (AMEN) enrolled 74 Seventh-day Adventists from five Hispanic/Latino churches within a 20 mile radius of Loma Linda, CA into a cross-sectional study of diet (24 h recalls, surveys) and health (anthropometrics and biomarkers).

Results: Vegetarian diet patterns (Vegan, Lacto-ovo vegetarian, Pesco-vegetarian) were associated with significantly lower BMI (24.5 kg/m2 vs. 27.9 kg/m2, p = 0.006), waist circumference (34.8 cm vs. 37.5 cm, p = 0.01), and fat mass (18.3 kg vs. 23.9 kg, p = 0.007), as compared to non-vegetarians. Adiposity was positively associated with pro-inflammatory cytokines (Interleukin-6) in this sample, but adjusting for this effect did not alter the associations with vegetarian diet.

Conclusions: Plant-based eating as practiced by US-based Hispanic/Latino Seventh-day Adventists is associated with BMI in the recommended range. Further work is needed to characterize this type of diet for use in obesity-related interventions among Hispanic/Latinos in the US.



Background

The rates of obesity and diabetes have sharply increased in the last decade among Hispanics/Latinos in North America (14). Currently, diabetes is the fifth leading cause of death in Hispanics/Latinos, and the trend represents a health disparity whereby rates are 60% higher among Hispanics/Latinos as compared to non-Hispanic Whites and increasing faster than in other major ethnic groups (3, 5). In a large sample of Hispanic/Latino adults in four regions of United States (n = 16,400), the Hispanic Community Health Study/Study of Latinos found that about 1 in 3 individuals had pre-diabetes, and that only about half of individuals with type 2 diabetes (T2D) had it under control (6).

One potential contributor to this burden of obesity and diabetes is the occurrence of a “nutrition transition” occurring in most people of Mexican origin but accelerated in US Hispanic/Latinos as they acculturate to consuming higher intake of meats and processed foods, and lower intake of whole plant foods commonly found in the traditional diet (i.e., squash, maize, beans) (79). For example, the analysis of a nationally representative sample of US Mexican adults found higher rates of overweight/obesity in those who had “transitioned” from traditional eating patterns emphasizing maize to patterns emphasizing red meat, processed meat, and processed foods (1012). These emerging data support that a plant-based dietary intervention could be effective in primary and secondary prevention of obesity and obesity-related diabetes in the Hispanic/Latino population.

Overall, in a systematic review of 15 intervention studies (17 intervention groups among them) in multi-ethnic samples, Barnard et al. has shown that interventions with the vegetarian diet contributed to an average of more than 3 kg of weight loss (13). For diabetics, a similar systematic review of vegetarian diet interventions indicated significant improvement in glycemic control (14).

A recent pilot study at Loma Linda University has shown that a 5-week plant-based, culturally-tailored diet intervention implemented through community clinics and a church significantly improved hemoglobin A1C levels over a 6 month follow-up in 32 Latino diabetics living in a medically underserved area. At Loma Linda University, more than 60 years of NIH-funded prospective cohort studies [1960 Adventist Mortality Study (15), 1976 Adventist Health Study-1 (16), 2002 Adventist Health Study-2 (17)] have shown that the vegetarian diet was associated with lower risk of weight gain (18, 19), stroke (20), and diabetes (21, 22), and on this causal pathway, a longer life expectancy. These cohorts enrolled Seventh-day Adventists (most recently a nationwide cohort of 96,000 multi-ethnic adults in AHS-2) who provide a unique insight into diet since, due to faith-based recommendations, about 50% are vegetarian, and virtually all avoid smoking and alcohol (23). Faith-based counsels on diet also encourage the consumption of specific plant foods (i.e., legumes, nuts) in place of animal products (19). Hypotheses generated from these cohorts have been tested in landmark intervention trials.

The Adventist Multi-ethnic Nutrition (AMEN) Study is a new pilot study from Loma Linda University involving Hispanic/Latino Seventh-day Adventist adults for the purpose of studying the association between their cultural tailoring of a plant-based diet and selected health outcomes. To date, we have observed beneficial associations between health outcomes and culturally-tailored plant-based diet choices in Black Adventists (24, 25) and in Asian Adventists (20), respectively. The aim of this report is to test the hypothesis that the culturally-tailored plant-based dietary pattern practiced by Hispanic/Latino Seventh-day Adventists is associated with lower levels of adiposity and adiposity-related biomarkers. Findings from this work can potentially inform the cultural tailoring of plant-based diet choices for dietary interventions in the broader population of US Hispanic/Latinos.
Methods
Study Population

The AMEN study is a cross-sectional investigation of diet and cardio-metabolic markers conducted during 2013–2016 in churches within a 20 mile radius of Loma Linda University. Our target congregations were predominantly of Hispanic/Latino background. The inclusion criteria included: (1) age 18 years or older, (2) baptized into the Seventh-day Adventist church, (3) self-identify as Hispanic, and (4) no self-report of dementia, pregnancy, or breastfeeding.

Recruitment efforts were initiated by assembling a community advisory board of influential individuals from the Hispanic and Asian Adventist churches in Southern California. Based on the advice of this board, we selected five Hispanic congregations. An additional criterion was that the congregations be meeting in facilities that could accommodate a weekend health clinic. Recruitment from these congregations was done by: (1) linking recruitment to informative health and lifestyle presentations done by Loma Linda University lifestyle medicine faculty, (2) linking recruitment to health and wellness clinics done on the church premises over a weekend, and (3) notices on church bulletin boards, social media, and through e-mail campaigns.

Through these efforts, we recruited 141 subjects from the five congregations that had been invited to participate, of whom 101 subjects were eligible for enrollment. Due to missing data for pertinent diet and anthropometric variables, our analytic sample consisted of 74 subjects. All data collection forms were translated into English and Spanish, and a bi-lingual translator was available for assistance.
Outcome Measures

Eligible subjects were enrolled if they attended a health assessment clinic that occurred either as part of a health fair at their church or by appointment at Loma Linda University. A 12 h fasting blood sample drawn by a certified phlebotomist and first void urine sample were collected from each participant. For this analysis, biospecimens were analyzed for a comprehensive metabolic panel, and also tests of inflammatory markers (interleukin-6, C reactive protein) using a previously described protocol by Jaceldo-Siegl et al. (26). Briefly, collection of blood was done after an overnight fast, and serum was separated from the cells within 30 min of collection, placed on wet ice, and then shipped or transported to the central study laboratory at Loma Linda, CA for further processing. Blood was aliquoted to 0.5 mL samples and immediately stored in liquid nitrogen until analysis. Concentrations of CRP and IL-6 were measured in duplicate samples using enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) kits from R & D Systems (Minneapolis, MN, USA) for IL-6, Thermo Fisher Scientific (Waltham, MA, USA), and Assaypro (St. Charles, MO, USA) for CRP. For IL-6, the detectable limit was 0.039 pg/mL, and intra- and inter-assay CV were 6.9 and 7.2%; and for CRP, these were 100 pg/mL, 5.5 and 7.6%, respectively.

Blood pressure (BP), weight, height, body mass index (BMI), waist circumference (WC), and body composition were assessed on-site. Height was measured to the nearest quarter inch (0.64 cm) using the Seca 214 Portable Height Rod (Seca Corp, Hamburg, Germany). Weight (measured to the nearest half pound or 0.23 kg) and body composition were assessed using a body composition analyzer (Tanita, Model TBF-300A, Arlington Heights, IL, USA). Waist circumference was obtained using an anthropometric tape placed around the waist just above the hipbone.

Blood pressure and resting pulse were assessed each as the average of three measurements using the OMRON Digital Blood Pressure Monitor HEM-7471C (Omron Healthcare Inc., Vernon Hills, IL, USA). All subjects were subject to a standard protocol, including a 5 min quiet relaxation period prior to the first reading of BP and resting pulse, and 1 min rest between consecutive measurements.
Classification of Vegetarian Diet

Dietary intake was assessed using two methods: (1) A single 24 h recall using standard methodology that has been discussed previously (27), (2) Survey items adapted from EPIC Oxford where subjects were also asked about their consumption (in the past 30 days) of four animal-based products (meat, fish, dairy, and eggs). Using the latter method to survey usual intake, participants were classified as non-vegetarian if they currently eat meat; pescatarian if they eat no meat but eat fish; lacto-ovo vegetarian if they eat dairy and eggs but not meat or fish; and strict vegetarian if they do not consume meat, eggs, fish and dairy. Due to the limited sample size, strict vegetarians, lacto-ovo vegetarians, and pescatarians were considered as following a plant-based diet and collapsed into a “vegetarian” group. Survey items measuring meat intake among Seventh-day Adventists have been validated against multiple 24 h recalls with correlations that exceed 0.80 (27).
Assessment of Demographic, Religiosity, and Culture-Specific Data

We obtained demographic, spoken language, nativity and religiosity data by questionnaire. Religiosity was assessed by asking the question, “How religious are you?” where we defined “religious” as having “to do with a personal experience and not just a behavior, like going to church.” Responses were elicited using a 10-point semantic differential scale where 1 represents not religious at all and 10 the most religious.
Statistics

Descriptive analyses comparing vegetarians and non-vegetarians on selected subject characteristics were conducted using t-tests for continuous, and χ2 or Fisher test for categorical variables. Continuous outcome variables (anthropometric, body composition, pulse, and blood pressure measures) were compared in vegetarians and non-vegetarians using generalized linear models adjusted for age, sex, and education. Ninety-five percent confidence intervals for the difference between these adjusted means were computed using the standard errors of the regression coefficients in the models.
Results

In Table 1, we examined demographics characteristics of Hispanic/Latino subjects in the AMEN study. We found that vegetarians tended to be older (p = 0.006) and more educated (p = 0.02) as compared to non-vegetarians (Table 1). There was no significant difference in religiosity between the vegetarians and non-vegetarians.

Vegetarian Diet and Adiposity

In linear regression models (Table 2), we tested the association between measures of adiposity (BMI, waist circumference (WC), fat mass, and percent body fat) as outcomes and vegetarian diet status as a main exposure. We found that BMI was lower among the vegetarians than the non-vegetarians (24.5 kg/m2 vs. 27.9 kg/m2, p = 0.006) after adjusting for age, sex, and education. Vegetarians also had significantly lower waist circumference (34.8 cm vs. 37.5 cm), fat mass (18.3 kg vs. 23.9 kg), and percent body fat (28.4% vs. 32%) as compared to non-vegetarians. Pulse rate, systolic and diastolic blood pressure values among vegetarians were not significantly different from those of non-vegetarians.

Vegetarian Diet, Adiposity, and Inflammatory Markers

We found that log-transformed interleukin-6 (IL-6) was positively associated with the following adiposity outcomes: BMI (β = 1.64, p = 0.04), waist circumference (β = 1.32, p = 0.08), fat mass (β = 1.32, p = 0.05), and fat percent (β = 4.22, p = 0.004). Adding the main exposure for vegetarian status to the model did not appreciably reduce these associations. For log transformed C-reactive protein (CRP), positive associations were found for fat mass (β = 2.38, p = 0.03) and fat percent (β = 3.13, p = 0.004). Similarly, adding the main exposure did not change CRP associations with measures of adiposity. We note that the power to detect mediation was low, making type 1 errors more likely.

There were no significant differences between vegetarians and non-vegetarians for log-transformed CRP (β = −0.06562, p = 0.78) or log-transformed IL-6 (β = −0.19132, p = 0.29).
Discussion

In the AMEN study, we found that in a sample of Seventh-day Adventist Hispanic/Latino adults, those following a vegetarian dietary pattern had a BMI that was lower (24.5 kg/m2 vs. 27.9 kg/m2, p = 0.006) and within federally-recommended limits as compared to non-vegetarians. These findings were confirmed by similar decreases in other measures of adiposity [fat mass (18.3 kg vs. 23.9 kg), and percent body fat (28.4% vs. 32%)] and abdominal adiposity [waist circumference (34.8 cm vs. 37.5cm)].

These findings are concordant with findings from non-Hispanic white Adventists (18, 19, 22), Black/African American Adventists (22, 25), and Asian Adventists (20). For Black Adventists, Akbar et al. has reported a “cultural tailoring” of the vegetarian diet chosen whereby Southern and Caribbean influenced dietary patterns introduced a wide range of plant foods into the diet (24). In US-based Asian Indian Adventists, Singh reported the predominance of nuts as a major source of protein in vegetarians who were at lower BMI (20).

Our next step in the AMEN study was to investigate how the protective patterns of plant-based eating in Hispanic/Latino adults were influenced by cultural preference for specific plant foods. These data can potentially inform culturally-tailored plant-based dietary interventions for the broader population of US Hispanic/Latinos who have been experiencing a nutrition transition away from simpler, more traditional diets rich in whole plant foods.
Plant-Based Eating in US Hispanic/Latinos

Our data indicates that more plant-based eating in US-based Hispanic/Latino Adventist adults was associated on average with adiposity indices falling within the federally-recommended limits. If this association holds true also for non-Adventist Hispanics/Latinos, how feasible and scalable is it to have Adventist and non-Adventist Hispanics/Latinos increase their plant-based dietary choices as a means of preventing the obesity and cardiometabolic diseases that are disproportionately prevalent in their community?

When considering this question it is noteworthy that data from Latin America indicate a rich cultural tradition of eating and preparing a diverse range of regional plant foods. For example, the Tarahumara Indians of Mexico traditionally adhered to a diet consisting of beans, corn, and squash and very little meat, and this pattern has been associated with lower risk of cardiometabolic disease (28) and can be significantly compromised by plying the Tarahumara with a typical U.S. diet (29). Studies from South America report that vegan and semi-vegetarian Peruvian and Brazilian subjects (following traditional cultural choices involving plant foods) do have lower rates of hypertension, dyslipidemia, and obesity as compared to omnivores (30). These small studies provide clues that increasing plant-based diet choices based on long-held cultural traditions of eating whole plant foods can potentially be an attractive target for high impact interventions. When designing dietary interventions we note that the strict vegetarian diet pattern is not commonly practiced by US Hispanic/Latinos (31), and further research is needed in this community to examine whether increasing plant food intake to the point of semi-vegetarian or pescatarian pattern can improve health outcomes.
Plant-Based Eating, Pro-Inflammatory Cytokines, and Obesity in Hispanic/Latinos

Among the Hispanic/Latino adults of the AMEN study, we did find that measures of adiposity were associated with pro-inflammatory cytokines such as interleukin-6. Compared to non-vegetarian dietary patterns, vegetarian dietary patterns generate increased microbially-generated short chain fatty acids, which reduce systemic inflammation (e.g., IL-6), increase hormonal satiety-signaling (e.g., glucagon-like peptide-1) and reduce insulin resistance (32, 33). Among Hispanic/Latino subjects, recent studies suggest that IL-6 may be elevated from a young age, and the link across the lifespan to higher rates of cardiometabolic disease may be due to specific IL-6 polymorphisms in Latino youth (34). Interestingly, adding IL-6 to our models examining association with vegetarian diet exposure did not alter the protective effect of the diet on obesity.
Limitations

The AMEN study has important limitations. The cross-sectional and observational design precludes inferring a causal effect from the association of diet with obesity and obesity-related disease. The purpose of our pilot study was to generate culturally-specific hypotheses for testing this association in longitudinal and experimental designs with novel culturally-tailored interventions.

The relatively small sample size limited our statistical power to test more complex food and nutrient models, and for testing interaction and mediation. We note, however, the significant and cross-validating associations between plant-based eating and measures of adiposity that persist despite the limited power to detect these associations.

Religiosity could also be a factor since we are studying a faith-based group. It is noteworthy, however, that we observed no difference in religiosity between the vegetarians and non-vegetarians we studied. Measurement error in dietary assessment is always present in observational work, but we note a decades-long track record by our research group validating diet and vegetarian diet survey measures in Adventists (16, 17, 35).
Conclusions

Our findings from Hispanic/Latino Seventh-day Adventists indicate that plant-based diet patterns were associated with adiposity in the recommended range, and effects were consistent across multiple measures of adiposity and obesity-related inflammatory markers. Further studies of how Hispanics/Latinos have culturally tailored the Adventist plant-based eating pattern could potentially inform interventions for the broader population of Hispanics/Latinos.

Jadon Sancho scored twice in seven minutes to help Borussia Dortmund to a nervous 2-1 victory over Mainz 05 that sent them back to the top of the Bundesliga.

Sancho’s goals were enough to lift Dortmund, who were dominant in the first half but inexplicably eased off after the break, to 66 points with five games left to play. They are two points ahead of Bayern Munich, who face Fortuna Düsseldorf on Sunday.

          Bek Wolverhampton Picu Perang Liverpool dan Barcelona      Comment   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Jakarta Liverpool dan Barcelona akan saling sikut di bursa transfer musim panas nanti. Kedua klub raksasa Eropa itu memburu pemain muda Wolverhampton Wanderers Ruben Vinagre.

Pemuda 20 tahun itu mampu menembus tim utama Wolverhampton musim ini. Dia berposisi sebagai bek kiri dan cukup sering dimainkan sebagai starter.  

O Jago melaporkan Barcelona dan Liverpool kepincut dengan Vinagre dan akan mencoba merekrutnya pada bursa transfer musim panas.

Manajer Liverpool Jurgen Klopp ingin Vinagre menjadi pelapis bagi Andrew Robertson yang merupakan bek kiri andalan The Reds musim ini.

Sedangkan Barcelona melirik Vinagre karena berusaha meremajakan skuat. Vinagre disiapkan menjadi penerus Jordi Alba yang sudah termakan usia.

Sejak 2017

Tak mudah membajak Vinagre. Wolverhampton tidak akan bersedia melepasnya. Wolverhampton ingin membuat skuat yang tangguh musim depan.

Harga jual Vinagre diperkirakan berkisar 35 juta pound. Wolverhampton merekrut Vinagre dari AS Monaco tahun 2017 lalu.

          Pemain Lyon Calon Pengganti Pjanic di Juventus      Comment   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Jakarta Juventus terancam ditinggal gelandang Miralem Pjanic musim panas nanti. La Vecchia Signora mulai menyiapkan calon pengganti yang paling tepat.

Pjanic saat ini sering dikaitkan dengan Real Madrid. Konon pelatih Los Blancos Zinedine Zidane menginginkan Pjanic datang ke Santiago Bernabeu musim panas nanti. Agen Pjanic sempat terlihat berada di Madrid beberapa waktu lalu. 

Meski merupakan pemain penting di lini tengah, Juventus tampaknya takkan menghalangi kepindahan Pjanic. Beberapa kali Juventus menegaskan tidak akan mempertahankan pemain yang memang ingin pindah.

Juventus menjadikan gelandang Olympique Lyon Tanguy Ndombele sebagai calon pengganti Pjanic. L'Equipe mengklaim Juventus berada di baris terdepan untuk mendapatkan Ndombele.

Petinggi Juventus Fabio Paratici dilaporkan sudah bertemu dengan perwakilan Ndombele membahas rencana transfer ke Turin. Pemain 22 tahun itu bernilai di atas 60 juta pound.

 

Berat

Selain harga mahal, hambatan lain Juventus mendapatkan Ndombele adalah banyaknya klub besar Eropa yang meminati pemain asal Prancis itu.

Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester City dan Manchester United (MU) juga tertarik merekrut Ndombele musim panas nanti.

          Bizarro Bazar keeps the world weird      Comment   Translate Page      

Within the topography of the human soul there is a strange land called the Uncanny. As Sigmund Freud wrote in his classic essay on the topic:

The subject of the ‘uncanny’ (...) is undoubtedly related to what is frightening—to what arouses dread and horror; equally certainly, too, the word is not always used in a clearly definable sense, so that it tends to coincide with what excites fear in general.

The Uncanny is a liminal zone at the outer fringes of our normal awareness. Both repelling and attractive, the Uncanny magnetizes the mind with its potent brew of sublime and horrible, beautiful and obscene, familiar and alien, enchanting and morbid, the ultimate mysterium tremendum et fascinans.

For the intellectually adventurous, a signpost of the Uncanny is the blog Bizzarro Bazar.

Bizzarro Bazar

Devoted to all things “strange, macabre, wonderful,” Bizzarro Bazar is a virtual wunderkammer made up of queer collectibles, absurd oddities and twisted curiosities from the history of medicine, anatomical collections, anthropology, tanathology, alternative sexuality, literature, cinema and other obscure sources. The result is a swirling tapestry of eldritch, poignant, otherworldly delights.

Bizzarro Bazar is the brainchild project (and nom de plume) of Ivan Cenzi. Based in Rome, Cenzi is a prolific author and eclectic intellectual, Arbiter Elegantiae of all things weird and wonderful. His books, with text both in Italian and English, are devoted to Italy's most unusual anatomy museums, catacombs and charnel houses. With a peculiar mix of erudite poise and eerie playfulness, Cenzi's work articulates the words of JBS Haldane: "The universe is not only stranger than we imagine; it is stranger than we can imagine."

... Synthetic detergents as amphiphilic xenobiotics, have a negative impact on the process of oxidation of organic compounds in units for biological wastewater treatment through localization substrate, dispersing the sludge, breach of oxygen regime and inhibition of activated sludge microorganism activity [3]. The synthetic surfactants with membranotropic properties affect microorganisms [4,5]. The anoxic and aerobic biological treatment technology is mainly used for the effective removal of organic compounds and nutrients from municipal wastewater [6]. ...

They form an important link between dissolved and suspended solids and the higher levels of the food chain, contributing to nutrient cycling and regulation of the metabolism of freshwater ecosystems (Ostroumov, 2005).

... Samples taken in the QDL wetland in the upstream region of the Heilong River showed higher values for EFs of heavy metals than those taken in HXZ after 1980 CE This pattern could indicate that human activities started to lead to the deposition of more heavy metals into the QDL wetland starting in 1980 CE However, the EFs of heavy metals in the HXZ wetland in the downstream region of the Heilong River almost showed stable patterns in all stages, with only a gradual increasing from 1965 CE ( Fig. 4a). This pattern might be due to the fact that heavy metal concentrations can decrease gradually with the water flow because of the self-purification of the water body and sedimentation processes ( Ostroumov, 2002;Vagnetti et al., 2003). There were fairly similar increasing trends of EFs from 1954 CE in the DFH and ZJ wetlands, which are both situated along the Wusuli River. ...;

... These findings suggest that increasing species diversity of submerged macrophytes may have beneficial effects on sustaining large aquatic vegetation production as well as on maintenance of good water quality of aquatic ecosystem and therefore likely limit water eutrophication. To date, however, under eutrophic conditions, whether increasing species diversity can enhance submerged macrophyte growth and water quality has not been widely studied in aquatic ecosystems (Engelhardt and Ritchie, 2001;Ostroumov, 2002). ...

... The synthetic surfactants used nowadays can restrict the auto-ltering activity of marine animals. 15 Such synthetic compounds thus cause serious pollution to the marine life and can also cause much damage to humans in the form of dermatitis, irritation and respiratory problems. Consequently, researchers around the world are actively seeking alternative sources of these synthetic surfactants that are economically viable and environmental friendly....;

... Before each handling, par- ticles were vortexed to prevent particle aggregation and insure good suspension homogenization. Commercial suspensions were in ultrapure water (UW) with Tween-20 © surfactant (<0.1%) to limit aggregation; Tween-20 © had previously been demonstrated to be innocuous for marine invertebrates at this dose (Ostroumov, 2003). Raman microspectroscopy analysis confirmed the PS nature of the polymer for all beads and no additional features were observed in the PS spectra across all particles. ...;

Sergei A. Ostroumov
This fundamental and innovative article was cited and commented favorably by scientists in many countries, and inter alia, by Professor V.A. Abakumov (2013), the leading expert in aquatic ecology in Russian Federation, and Chair, Department of Ecology, an international university in the Moscow Region. A Diploma (Academy of Water Sciences) – a certificate of high scientific quality - was awarded to the series of publications (on ecology, environmental science) including this article:

ABSTRACT: A fundamental concept is proposed of aquatic ecosystem as a bioreactor that carries out the function of water purification in natural water bodies and streams. The ecosystem as a bioreactor has the following characteristic attributes: (1) it is a large-scale (large-volume) bioreactor; (2) it is a diversified (in terms of the number of taxa and the scope of functional activities) bioreactor; (3) it possesses a broad range of biocatalytic (chemical-transforming and degrading) capabilities. New experimental data on xenobiotics-induced inhibition of the functioning of the molluscs Unio tumidus, U. pictorum, M. galloprovincialis and Limnaea stagnalis emphasize the potential ecological hazard from sublethal concentrations of pollutants (including those exemplified by synthetic surfactants and detergents). Keywords:

Innovation in a nutshell: A new fundamental concept and new scientific terms, to develop terminology in environmental science, in ecology: Two-Level Synergism, Synecological Summation of Anthropogenic Effects;
Abstract: The author identified a new type of ecological hazard of anthropogenic impact (using chemical pollution as an example), which he proposed to term “synecological summation” or “synergistic summation” of anthropogenic effects on organisms of two adjacent trophic levels.

** NEW FACTS:
in the study reported in the paper, the following new type of environmental hazards was found. It was shown that even some relatively mild influences on organisms of two adjacent trophic levels may eventually produce a synergistic, pronounced and definitely undesirable effect which will lead to an abnormal increase in the abundance of organisms of one of the trophic levels. The concrete examples of that type of synergism were found when anthropogenic impacts affected the organisms of two adjacent trophic levels (bivalves and algae). Some new bioeffects of the action of the synthetic detergent (exemplified by the laundry detergent, namely, the detergent 'Vesna') (1 mg/l) on the bivalves, oysters Crassostrea gigas were described. Also, some new effects of the detergent (exemplified by the laundry detergent, namely, the detegent 'IXI') (10 mg/l) on the marine mussels Mytilus galloprovincialis, were found; also, new effects of the detergent (exemplified by the trade markTide-Lemon) (50 mg/l) on M. galloprovincialis were discovered.

** CONCLUSION:
The hazard of simultaneous influence of contamination of environment (e.g., by detergents) on organisms of the two trophic levels may occur when the polluting chemicals produce effects on algae and bivalves that are filter-feeders. It means that a new type of environmental hazards was discovered. [MAIK Nauka/Interperiodica, distributed by Springer Science+Business Media LLC.; ISSN 0012-4966 (Print) 1608-3105 (Online)];

The author suggested a new component of the measures against eutrophication: reducing the input of the pollutants that weaken the potential of the filter-feeders for removing algae. The suggested way of controlling eutrophication is applicable to both freshwater and marine ecosystems. The article proposed a new idea, a new conceptual way of controlling eutrophication. The article is based on a series of the author's experiments with aquatic organisms (filter-feeders) that discovered and quantified relevant toxic effects of organic pollutants at sublethal concetrations. This article presented some new data to continue this line of research that is essential to the new solution to eutrophication. Among new facts that were reported in the paper, in addition to a substantial amount of relevant, related data previously obtained by the author: The liquid detergent (exemplified by the dish washing liquid, Fairy) 2 mg/L inhibited filtration by the bivalve mollusks, marine mussels (Mytilus galloprovincialis) within 2-23 min after addition, at temperature 22.5 ºС. This species of bivalve mollusks is one of key species in marine benthic ecosystems; it is one of ecological engineers that make a great impact on water quality. This is only one new fact that adds to many other facts (on how chemical pollutants can inhibit water filtration) discovered and reported by the author in other publications (papers and the book, Biological Effects of Surfactants). The paper presents a new approach to combat eutrophication.

Abakumov (2013), the leading expert in aquatic ecology in Russian Federation, and Chair, Department of Ecology, an international university in the Moscow Region. A Diploma (Academy of Water Sciences) – a certificate of high scientific quality - was awarded to the series of publications (on ecology, environmental science) including this article: http://5bio5.blogspot.com/2014/07/award-july-1-2014-to-series-of.html; ABSTRACT: A fundamental concept is proposed of aquatic ecosystem as a bioreactor that carries out the function of water purification in natural water bodies and streams. The ecosystem as a bioreactor has the following characteristic attributes: (1) it is a large-scale (large-volume) bioreactor; (2) it is a diversified (in terms of the number of taxa and the scope of functional activities) bioreactor; (3) it possesses a broad range of biocatalytic (chemical-transforming and degrading) capabilities. New experimental data on xenobiotics-induced inhibition of the functioning of the molluscs Unio tu- midus, U. pictorum, M. galloprovincialis and Limnaea stagnalis emphasize the potential ecological hazard from sublethal concentrations of pollutants (including those exemplified by synthetic surfactants and detergents).

... Samples taken in the QDL wetland in the upstream region of the Heilong River showed higher values for EFs of heavy metals than those taken in HXZ after 1980 CE This pattern could indicate that human activities started to lead to the deposition of more heavy metals into the QDL wetland starting in 1980 CE However, the EFs of heavy metals in the HXZ wetland in the downstream region of the Heilong River almost showed stable patterns in all stages, with only a gradual increasing from 1965 CE ( Fig. 4a). This pattern might be due to the fact that heavy metal concentrations can decrease gradually with the water flow because of the self-purification of the water body and sedimentation processes ( Ostroumov, 2002;Vagnetti et al., 2003). There were fairly similar increasing trends of EFs from 1954 CE in the DFH and ZJ wetlands, which are both situated along the Wusuli River. ...;

... These findings suggest that increasing species diversity of submerged macrophytes may have beneficial effects on sustaining large aquatic vegetation production as well as on maintenance of good water quality of aquatic ecosystem and therefore likely limit water eutrophication. To date, however, under eutrophic conditions, whether increasing species diversity can enhance submerged macrophyte growth and water quality has not been widely studied in aquatic ecosystems (Engelhardt and Ritchie, 2001;Ostroumov, 2002). ...

... The synthetic surfactants used nowadays can restrict the auto-ltering activity of marine animals. 15 Such synthetic compounds thus cause serious pollution to the marine life and can also cause much damage to humans in the form of dermatitis, irritation and respiratory problems. Consequently, researchers around the world are actively seeking alternative sources of these synthetic surfactants that are economically viable and environmental friendly....;

... Before each handling, par- ticles were vortexed to prevent particle aggregation and insure good suspension homogenization. Commercial suspensions were in ultrapure water (UW) with Tween-20 © surfactant (<0.1%) to limit aggregation; Tween-20 © had previously been demonstrated to be innocuous for marine invertebrates at this dose (Ostroumov, 2003). Raman microspectroscopy analysis confirmed the PS nature of the polymer for all beads and no additional features were observed in the PS spectra across all particles. ...;

          Klasemen Liga Italia: AC Milan Terus Pepet Inter      Comment   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Jakarta Juventus secara mengejutkan menelan kekalahan di kandang SPAL pada pekan ke-32 Liga Italia Serie A 2018/2019. Juventus kalah 1-2 di Paolo Mazza, Sabtu (13/4/2019).

Hasil ini memang tidak merubah posisi Juventus di klasemen sementara Liga Italia. Mereka masih memimpin klasemen dengan 84 poin dari 32 laga. Sedangkan, SPAL masih tertahan di urutan ke-13 dengan 35 angka.

Namun, kekalahan ini membuat Juventus harus menunggu lebih lama untuk mengunci gelar scudetto. Sebenarnya, Juventus hanya butuh satu poin untuk memastikan gelar juara Liga Italia 2018/2019.

AC Milan, yang tengah berjuang menembus kembali posisi papan atas, berhasil menang tipis 1-0 atas Lazio di San Siro dini hari tadi.

AC Milan berhasil mengalahkan Biancoceleste dengan skor 1-0 lewat gol penalti Franck Kessie.

Amankan Posisi

Tambahan tiga angka membuat Milan masih mengamankan posisi empat dengan raihan 55 poin dari 32 laga. Sedangkan, Lazio tertahan di peringkat 8 dengan koleks 49 poin dari 31 laga.

Sementara itu, AS Roma kalahkan Udinese 1-0 di Stadion Olimpico. Roma baru bisa mencetak gol lewat sepakan Dzeko pada babak kedua.

Roma kini ada di peringkat keempat dengan 54 poin dari 32 pertandingan. Sedangkan Udinese ada di posisi ke-16 dengan 32 poin.
